Fire chief ready for new challenges Harold Schapelhouman returns to work at Menlo Park fire district By Sandy Brundage | Photos by Michelle Le

was signing invoices and it felt like I’d never left,” said Harold Schapelhouman, reflecting upon his first day back at work on Jan. 6 as fire chief of the Menlo Park Fire Protection District after a fall last May left him paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Then he realized that while he still felt like the same person, the world had changed in his absence. Hundreds of emails piled up about issues that may not matter now. Colleagues moved on to other jobs. New directors took their seats on the board. “I feel like I’ve fast-forwarded to the end of the movie,” he said. Working part-time for at least two weeks, he plans to catch up on the state of the district with interim chief Dan Belville, who will stay on temporarily to assist with the transition. Chief Schapelhouman may well be the first person to serve as fire chief anywhere with this degree of disability, but he’s found inspiration and support from other public safety officers, such as Sean Simonson, a former firefighter now serving as emergency services manager for the city of Milpitas after he was paralyzed following a mountain biking accident. Eight months ago, the chief wasn’t sure he could come back. Even after finishing a hospital stay that saw almost every complication possible, he faced hours and hours of exams — to earn a license to drive, to demonstrate to his doctors he could handle the job — on top of therapy to rebuild strength and learning how to navigate the world sitting down. Gracefully accepting help presents another challenge as people try to figure out how to treat him. Neighbors and colleagues and firefighters mowed his lawn, cleaned the pool, cooked for his family. The parents of his 14-year-old daughter’s classmates put up holiday lights and then took them down. And if watching others do tasks that he used to delight in feels bittersweet, it’s also not without gratitude. “I wouldn’t have made it as far without the people who support me,” Chief Schapelhouman said. It’s a balancing act, though. “I get to the door of a restaurant and people jump up to open it. But you have to learn how to open it and sometimes that’s awkward, as you try to maneuver. I had to change my attitude. I real-

‘I

ized I had to be a bit nicer about (the help),” Chief Schapelhouman said. “I used to be the guy who jumped up.” His return is not without controversy. “Is everyone thrilled I’m back? I’m pretty sure everybody is not thrilled I’m back,” he said. But the long absence left time to reflect on difficult decisions made in the past, as well as to develop greater compassion. “I try to do the right thing instead of being right. There may be other ways, though, to get to the point where everybody sees themselves as part of the solution.” Some say they’re worried about his capacity to respond to the scene of an emergency. The district is buying a used van for about $52,000 that’s adapted for his use and includes emergency lights and radio, to replace the work vehicle Chief Schapelhouman used before — an accommodation required under the Americans with Disabilities Act. In his busiest year as chief in 2007, he said, he went to the scene 19 times; in the slowest year, six. “I’m not afraid of that. I’m looking forward to the first incident just to get that concern out of the way. Responding to the scene is part of the job. But I’m not combating fires

directly anymore and we have very competent incident commanders.” Mostly, as before, he plans to be on the sidelines, updating the press and

keeping an eye on the overall situation. Board President Rex Ianson said a “whole lot of unknowns” remain: How will it go the first time the chief drives to the scene? Do some tasks, such as meetings in other jurisdictions that will now take much more time, need to be delegated? Does the district need a deputy chief? Time will tell. For now, Mr. Ianson said the board has learned it needs a better succession plan in place should a key figure suddenly drop out of the action again. “We weren’t quite prepared to have the chief be out that long. It was a little bit of a scramble.” Others have suggested the chief should just retire. It’s something Chief Schapelhouman said he and his family considered, then decided it was important that he have the chance to continue making a contribution to the fire district, drawing upon his 33 years of experience and organizational knowledge. It’s also good for people to see him succeed, he said. The chief isn’t sure he’ll reach 40 years of service before choosing to call it quits — the goal before the accident — but said, “I’m not going to pack up tomorrow.” A

On the cover: On his third day back at work, Chief Harold Schapelhouman leaves the office of interim chief Dan Belville to attend a board meeting.

“I wouldn’t have made it as far without the people who support me,” Chief Harold Schapelhouman says. January 15, 2014 NTheAlmanacOnline.comNThe AlmanacN17

Local piano teacher behind band nominated for Grammy Award Pacific Mambo Orchestra is nominated for its debut album By Emma Marsano Special to the Almanac

any solo artists and musical groups perform for decades without receiving a Grammy nomination. The Pacific Mambo Orchestra, on the other hand, was just nominated in the category of Best Tropical Latin Band for its self-titled debut album. The group was founded in 2010 by Steffen Kuehn, a German trumpeter, and Christian Tumalan, a Mexican pianist who is, among other things, a piano teacher at Woodland School in Portola Valley. Currently, the two are the co-directors of PMO — Mr. Kuehn directs the horns and Mr. Tumalan the rhythm section. The creation of Pacific Mambo Orchestra can be traced to 2010, when Mr. Tumalan and Mr. Kuehn met at a recording session for an album to which they both contributed. While chatting between takes, they discovered their mutual interest in forming a larger Latin jazz group. For his part, Mr. Tumalan had become interested in Latin jazz about a decade earlier, while studying for his first of four musical degrees, this one in classical piano music at the Escuela Superior de Musica in Mexico City. Listening to the radio in the car one day, he heard Tito Puente’s song, “Ran Kan Kan,”

a classic of the Latin jazz genre, and was reminded of how much he liked it. Instantly inspired, he thought to himself, “I’m going to be doing something like this (someday).” After joining forces, Mr. Kuehn and Mr. Tumalan made a deal with the owner of San Francisco’s popular salsa club, Cafe Cocomo, to rehearse every Monday night, when most musicians take the night off. Within 18 months, Mr. Tumalan says, “We had a packed house on any given Monday night. Word spread (to elite local musicians), and that’s how we put the band together.” In 2012, after just a year and a half of performing together,

PMO decided to release an album. Mr. Tumalan and Mr. Kuehn raised money through a Kickstarter campaign to independently produce the album under the “Stefrecords & Tumalan Music” label. Their goal for the record was to help a wide range of people to “connect with Latin music,” Mr. Tumalan says. To that end, they blended genres in the songs they recorded, and even added a Latin groove to Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed.” Virtuoso Kenny Washington did the vocals on the track. “In my opinion,” says Mr. Tumalan, “he sings it better than Stevie Wonder.” Among other guests artists, the album features Tito Puente Jr., the son of the artist whose song “Ran Kan Kan” originally inspired Mr. Tumalan to form a big Latin jazz group. After its release in October 2012, the album hit top charts in Europe and South America, and reached Tim Fox, the president of Columbia Artists Management. Mr. Fox secured PMO a national tour, which they completed a few weeks ago. PMO’s competition for the Grammy is relatively steep: they’re up against past winners like Carlos Vives and Marc Anthony. “The four other nominees are really heavyweights in the industry,” Mr. Tumalan says. But members of the Pacific Mambo Orchestra are hopeful that their novelty will work in their favor on Jan. 26 at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. A

AN IMPORTANT NOTICE REQUIRED BY THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable. Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien. The O’Connor Tract Co-Operative Water Company has levels of manganese above the secondary drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened, and what we are doing to correct this situation. Our water system is in violation of a secondary drinking water standard. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Water sample results for the fourth quarter monitoring in 2013 have manganese levels of 75 ppb in well #1 and 130 ppb in well #2 (ppb=parts per billion). This is above the secondary drinking water standard, or secondary maximum contaminant level of 50 ppb. Manganese concentrations above the standard may have an effect on taste and tend to leave black deposits in some plumbing systems. What should I do? s

9OU DO NOT NEED TO USE AN ALTERNATIVE WATER SUPPLY (e.g., bottled water). There is no health risk.

What happened? What is being done? O’Connor Water has been above the secondary standard for manganese for many years, and this has been described to members in the annual Report on Water Quality Measurements. Recent state regulations have imposed stricter requirements for complying with the secondary standard for manganese. The state has issued the company a citation for noncompliance. The state ordered the company to start quarterly monitoring in February 2012, and this monitoring was completed in September 2012. The state also required that manganese monitoring be continued quarterly and that the results of these tests be reported to the members. The company has contracted with an engineering company to study best available technologies for either manganese removal or sequestration (adding a chemical so that the manganese does not precipitate from the water). The report has been received, and the company will be contacting members to decide whether they wish to remove or sequester the manganese, or request a waiver from the secondary standard. Presently, the company has agreed with the state to conduct additional studies concerning black deposits in the water at an apartment building. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this public notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this public notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.dlppllc.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1382570-31.
