Hangar’s ‘cork room’ set for demolition By Daniel DeBolt

MICHELLE LE

Caroline Boone rents the historic Bakotich house, which is slated for removal or demolition to make way for a co-housing project for seniors.

Historic home all yours — if you move it CITY’S SECOND OLDEST HOUSE IN THE WAY OF SENIOR PROJECT By Daniel DeBolt

T

ry as they might, a group of seniors who want to build communal housing at 445 Calderon Avenue say it is not economically feasible to design their 19-unit condo complex around the 1880s house in the middle of the large lot. Instead of demol-

ishing it, they are hoping to find a new address for the Victorian farmhouse known as the Bakotich house. Susan Burwen, who is organizing the co-housing effort with her husband David, secured the 1.3 acres adjacent to Landels Elementary School last year with the help of investors. Now Susan Burwen says

their architect, co-housing guru Charles Durrett, has come up with 30 designs for the project, but none were able to incorporate the 19-unit condo building and the 1,700-square-foot-home, even if moved to a different part of the property. See BAKATICH, page 9

s preservationists scramble to keep the Navy from removing the siding from historic Hangar One at Moffett Field with no plan to replace it, many are now realizing that a unique artifact of the airship era inside Hangar One is set to be destroyed in August — a small building known as the “cork room.” In the early 1930s, the massive Navy airship the USS Macon sailed over Mountain View and the Pacific Ocean like an airborne aircraft carrier with a handful of small fighter planes ready to be deployed from its belly. In its home base, the 200-foot-tall, 1,133-foot-long Hangar One, the cork room was a temperature-controlled environment used to store and maintain the Macon’s fragile helium gas cells which kept the airship aloft. They were made from cow intestines before Goodyear came up with a cotton fabric that did the job, said Bill Wissel, founding board member of the Moffett Field Historical Society. The fragile cells had to be constantly inspected and patched because of chaffing on the airship frame. The 30-yard-long, narrow steelframed room with double doors on one end is likely to be last of its kind after a similar one in Lakehurst, New Jersey (the location of

the fiery Hindenberg crash) was demolished, Wissel said. “In my opinion, the cork room is the most significant historical artifact in the hangar,” Carl Honaker, the last chief executive officer at Moffett Field before it ceased to be a Naval base, said in an email. “It’s the only physical evidence of the USS Macon/Lighter-Than-Air era, which was the purpose for constructing the hangar in the first place.” Hangar One’s interior buildings, including the cork room, may be demolished as early as August, according to an e-mail dated Monday, June 14, from Sarah Ann Moore, the deputy base closure manager for the Navy. “Preservation of the cork room is not a component of the Navy contract,” Moore wrote. “Work associated with removal of Hangar 1’s interior buildings is estimated to start in August 2010.” Navy officials have said it is impractical to decontaminate the cork room for preservation. It is unclear what needs to be decontaminated, though lead paint is found throughout the hangar and the hangar’s asbestos-laden siding is scheduled for removal this fall. The Navy currently plans to preserve a section of the five-inch-thick cork insulation and take photos of See CORK ROOM, page 11

Firefighters’ pay cut could help save police jobs By Daniel DeBolt

general fund will result in the elimination of 15 city employee positions, only four of which are filled: three police assistants and a police department records specialist. A deal to reduce pay raises for firefighters could save those four jobs when the City Council takes a final vote on the budget on

Tuesday, June 22. Some residents spoke Tuesday out of concern that cutting the office jobs in the police department would “saddle” sworn police officers with more paperwork, thereby reducing police crime-fighting capacity. Council members said the four police department posi-

Firefighters Association president John Miguel said discussions have been extended because of unresolved complications with his union’s contract. Miguel said a contract misinterpretation by city management may have cost fireSee BUDGET, page 6

Angee Salvador is set to retire.

Motion to adjourn: City Clerk Angee Salvador retires OVER 500 MEETING MINUTES, 1,204 RESOLUTIONS IN HER LONG CAREER By Daniel DeBolt

A

fter 21 years working in Mountain View’s city clerk’s office, City Clerk Angee Salvador is calling it good on June 18. Salvador, 56, never thought she would retire so early, having grown up in the Philippine barrio of Arubub, where her family sustained themselves by raising livestock and crops. She may have gotten an inkling that public service was her calling when her father became the “provincial warden” of the local prison, which made life much easier for the family. “Maybe that’s how it started,” Salvador laughs, saying she hadn’t thought of it before. Salvador earned a degree in public administration and worked for a United Nationssponsored housing program in Manila. She came to the United States in 1978 at the age of 24 and has worked in local government ever since, with stints at Santa Cruz County and the City of Capitola doing everything from document processing to working as a court clerk. Salvador was named city clerk in Mountain View by the City Council in 1999 after 10 years as deputy city clerk. The highlight, she says, is working on city elections. When someone decides to run for City Council, the city clerk is the first person to get to know. On Tuesday, every member

of the City Council spoke with praise for Salvador and thanked her for her service. Margaret Abe-Koga said she was “devastated” that Salvador was leaving, while Jac Siegel said Salvador’s service to the city has been “phenomenal.” If information is the lifeblood of city government, then the city clerk’s office is the heart of City Hall. Information goes in and out and it’s a busy, sometimes tedious job that can take over 50 hours a week for Salvador. There are three other employees in the clerk’s office to help out, though one position, the receptionist, is on tier three of a list of potential city budget cuts. It is currently held by a temporary employee, who also serves as the receptionist for the city attorney, city manager and finance department. In her tenure, Salvador has worked under 17 council members, and has spent over 1,000 hours on the council dais where her duties include preparing and sending out agendas, timing public speakers, and taking minutes. She has prepared over 500 sets of meeting minutes, 1,204 resolutions and 148 ordinances. She handles regular public records requests, which puts her in contact with city gadflies who are sometimes unhappy with a piece of information she’s given them. She says she doesn’t take it personally, and she treats them the same as everyone else. See SALVADOR, page 10

he local community college district is planning to place a parcel tax measure on the November ballot. The parcel tax would provide the Foothill and De Anza colleges with much needed funding after three years of state funding cuts, trustees said. At a special meeting June 14, the board unanimously agreed to move forward into the planning and communication phase of the proposed tax. Bruce Swenson, president of the Foothill-De Anza Community College District board of

trustees, said the measure would cost property owners up to $69 per parcel annually for six years, generating an estimated $6.9 million for the cash-strapped district. Currently, the district has no parcel tax on property within its boundaries. Swenson said both colleges have experienced budget cuts totaling about $15 million each year for three years running. This year, Swenson added, the district did not receive funding for about 1,000 students and had to turn away several thousand more. That is a bad equation for Sili-

CITY WINS ORDER THAT WILL SHUT BUDDY’S BY JULY 7 By Daniel DeBolt

A

judge has granted the city’s request for a temporary injunction to shut down Buddy’s Cannabis Patient Collective on Bayshore Parkway, which must now close by 5 p.m. July 7. “It is a very sad day for the sick and ill in Mountain View,” said Matt Lucero, a former corporate attorney who opened the medical marijuana dispensary in April. The injunction issued Tuesday, June 15, by Superior Court Judge Joseph Huber is temporary as the city is also seeking a permanent injunction through more lengthy court proceedings. Lucero has said he is willing to take the fight all the way to the state Supreme Court, and he says it is important to continue pressing the case forward. See POT CLUB, page 8

fighters hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay, which firefighters are offering to forgive as part of their deal to cut costs this year. Firefighters have offered to decrease their 4.2 percent pay raise in 2010-11 to 3 percent. If the deal is approved, the City Council will still be $250,000 short of its goal for $1 million in “employee cost containment” to balance the budget. The city’s other employee groups have agreed to take no pay raises next year, except for a group of SIEU-represented and confidential/IT employees, who will receive a 1.2 percent increase. Those deals save $500,000 from the $2.8 million increase in city employee salaries projected for next year. In 2011-12, firefighter contracts expire and firefighters have offered to take no pay raise. They will take on some of their pension costs, for another $750,000 in savings. Budget cuts all around Budget highlights include a slew of fee hikes for public works, planning, police services and recre-

ation programs totaling $967,000. Cuts include the elimination of 11 vacant positions, including a street maintenance worker, a tree trimmer, a supervising librarian and a community service officer. The city also restructured the police department to save over $500,000 by eliminating the position of police agent. “Going green” will also save some money, as the city is proposing to reduce energy use to save $50,000 and to reduce equipment replacement reserves by $200,000, partly through a reduction in the use of city vehicles. If a deal with firefighters is not made, council member Margaret Abe-Koga said the city should dig deeper into the equipment replacement reserve to save the four police department positions. A lengthy process After difficulties left the city with a $1.6 million deficit last year — its first deficit in decades — the council got a six month jump start on working on this year’s budget by started talks on June 23, 2009. A projected $4.6 million general fund deficit has been patched with $1 million in fee increases, See BUDGET, next page

$500,000 in cuts to $2.8 million in scheduled employee pay raises and the rest in various other budget cuts. When all is said and done, the city is expected to be $60,000 in the black, Duggan said. “We literally have been working on this budget the entire year,” said Duggan. The efforts have led to a budget that appears to spread cuts as thinly as possible in numerous areas, making the cuts “less dramatic and less impactful,” Duggan said. The budget is “more positive than many of us have anticipated.” After reducing city staff by almost 90 positions over the last 10 years, the city government is now quite “lean,” Duggan said, making the additional cuts that will likely be necessary next year difficult. Within the next month the City Council is expected to begin discussing long term strategies for how to deal with what appears to be the continual shrinking of Mountain View’s city government as employee salary growth outpaces the growth of tax revenue.

onathan Martinez, a student at Crittenden Middle School, is a sprightly 12-year-old, according to school principal Karen Robinson. “He’s a charming little boy,” Robinson said with a laugh, hinting that Jonathan is familiar with the inside of her office. When asked whether he has ever been in trouble with Ms. Robinson, Jonathan cracks a wily smile and nods. He is quick to add, “She helps me out a lot.” But there’s a lot more to this soon-to-be 8th-grader. He is also the lead singer of a barbershop group. Robinson foresees a bright future for Jonathan, perhaps in show business. “He has lots of energy and personality,” she said. Jonathan became interested in barbershop vocal arrangements after seeing a movie about Motown soul music stars The Temptations. The film, also called “The Temptations,” featured a scene in which the characters sang ringing barbershop harmonies.

He fell in love with the sound and passed the word on to some of his music class pals, 13-year-olds Gilberto Dominguez and Noah Ralph. And the seeds of The Barbershop Boys were sown. Figuring out how to recreate the dominant seventh and tonic four-tone barbershop chords required more than charm, however. “We wanted to sing barbershop, but we needed help,” Jonathan said. So, he, Gilberto and Noah appealed to their Crittenden music instructor, Leanne Rzepiela, and she called on Al Ward of the local Boomerang Barbershop Quartet. “To sing barbershop well is quite difficult,” Ward said. “The basics are pretty straightforward, but to really sing it well takes a great deal of rehearsing.” And rehearse the boys did — although not with as much rigor as the Boomerang crew. Every Tuesday at lunch, Ward and members of his group would come to Crittenden to instruct the handful of students who came to be

Ward and his group coached the boys all year, helping them divide traditional four-part barbershop harmonies among the group’s eight members — a task that could, at times, be tedious. Ward said that it was sometimes challenging to get Jonathan to concentrate, “but once we get him focused and the quartet starts to sing, he performs like a professional, emoting the emo-

tion of the song and engaging the audience.” The Barbershop Boys have sung at Crittenden Choir performances and at the Crittenden talent show. They recently performed at the Mountain View Whisman school board meeting on June 3 for their “dear principal, Ms. Robinson.” “That was really sweet,” Robinson said. “I’ve become their biggest fan.” V

It’s official: Jeff Rosen wins SC County DA race WITH MOST BALLOTS COUNTED, ROSEN LEADS CARR Gennady Sheyner

J

eff Rosen’s victory over Dolores Carr in Santa Clara County’s razor-thin race for district attorney became official Friday, June 11,when the updated election results showed his lead over Carr growing. With 99 percent of the county’s mailedin ballots counted, Rosen’s lead over Carr grew to 2,854 votes. Elma Rosas, spokesperson for the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters, said the county still had between 9,000 and 10,000 uncounted ballots, including roughly 7,500 “provisional ballots,” which need additional research before they can be counted. By Friday afternoon, Rosen had received 127,185 votes (50.57 percent), while Carr earned 124,331 votes (49.43 percent). He released a statement Friday afternoon say-

ing he is “incredibly humbled” to announce his inauguration as the county’s next district attorney in January. “In this election, we spoke with the people of this county, and together, loudly and clearly, we said one word: justice,” Rosen said in a statement. “I truly believe that we won this election because we were fair, truthful, and passionate about changing business as usual in this county,” he said. Shortly after the results were published, Carr acknowledged in a statement that “the race has been determined.” “I am proud of the honest and honorable campaign that we ran, and I am grateful for all of the support we received,” Carr said. “ I feel privileged to have served the community as the first female District Attorney in Santa Clara County, and I am proud of

what we accomplished.” The Friday results bring to conclusion the most hotly disputed race on the Tuesday, June 8, ballot. Rosen ended election night with a lead of about 2,200 votes, though more than 90,000 ballots were yet to be counted. Rosen led by only 1,724 votes early Friday, but saw his lead extend as more votes were counted. By the end of the day, his lead grew and his victory was assured. Rosas said the provisional ballots have to be processed before the county determines whether they should be counted. They typically take longer to process because of questions about the voter’s identity or place of residence, she said. But with almost 315,000 ballots already counted and his lead widening, Rosen’s victory became official.

development to have an educated population.” Swenson said he believes all residents in the Foothill-De Anza district will agree that the district should never have to turn students away based on lack of funding, and he is confident that this message will be heard in the weeks before August 2, when trustees are scheduled to vote to place the parcel tax on the November ballot. In the meantime, the district will provide the community with information on its financial condition and hear feedback on the proposed tax. Swenson said he is optimistic that about two-thirds of the district’s constituency will be in favor of the tax — the threshold needed to pass the measure come November. “Somewhere around 70 percent of our district has either gone to Foothill or De Anza, or has a family member that has,” he said. No one at the brief meeting spoke out in opposition to the board’s motion. V

For now, Lucero said he plans to move the operation to a “bigger and better” undisclosed San Jose location. There is no other dispensary within a 20-mile radius of the current location of Buddy’s, which has gained over 1,000 members after a little over two months of operation, he said. Mountain View placed a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries in March in order to prevent unregulated dispensaries from opening. The City Council is considering regulations that would allow dispensaries like Buddy’s to open, possibly sometime next year. Lucero said he plans to reopen Buddy’s in Mountain View “as soon as possible,” hopefully in the same location. Judge Huber denied the city’s request for an injunction against the landlord, which could have resulted in fines against the landlord of $1,000 a day. E-mail Daniel DeBolt at ddebolt@mv-voice.com

-PDBM/FXT BAKOTICH

Continued from page 1

A house from another era As it sits now, the Bakotich house is nice enough that its current tenants say they wished they could stay longer than the year and half they agreed to. It was built in the 1880s and hasn’t been changed much since then. Though it appears to have been maintained, Burwen said it will likely need new plumbing and electrical, among other things. Nick Perry, author of numerous articles on Mountain View history, once wrote that visiting the orchard-encompassed Victorian farmhouse “is like stepping into another era.� It is widely believed to be the city’s second oldest house after the 1867 Rengstorff House, which was moved to Shoreline Park and lovingly restored. The house was last owned by Anne Bakotich, who died in 2007. Her family had lived in the home since the 1920s and it was sold last year to divide the value among Bakotich’s nine nieces and grandchildren. It is still surrounded by walnut trees, remnants of the orchards that once covered the entire neighborhood. While it is relatively plain inside, City Council member Jac Siegel said it is a “nice example� of a farmhouse of the era. If found to be the only way to save it, Siegel said he would be willing to support moving the house in any way possible, even if it means using some city resources

or waiving city permit fees. The costs A company that specializes in moving large structures estimated the cost of moving the Bakotich home between $40,000 and $60,000. Jana Trost of Trost Jacking and Heavy Moving said that does not include the cost of a new foundation, and charges by utility companies to move any utility lines that may be in the way. Some have found it cheaper to simply remove a home’s roof to gain clearance if the roof is higher than about 18 feet, Trost said. Even with all those expenses adding up, it appears that moving the house may be a bargain compared to building a new home, which can easily cost more than $600,000. Burwen said her group may be willing to pay the house’s buyer some money to move it away.

The goal Burwen said she and her husband enjoyed living on a commune during the 1960s and wanted to pursue the project even before learning that “senior co-housing� was an existing phenomenon, with numerous senior co-housing communities throughout the country and architects who specialize in it. Life in the proposed co-housing development would revolve around a 4,000-square-foot common house where people get their mail and use a common kitchen, media room, crafts room and a workshop, among other things.

to find ways to encourage the house to be part of the project.� Siegel said that was also his favorite option. But making room for the house somewhere on the site may reduce the size of the condo building, spreading the cost more thickly among buyers. Everyone agrees that the project is already expensive, with an underground parking garage and an elevator pushing up prices, which range from $750,000 for a 1,370-square-foot unit to $1.25 million for a 2,050square-foot unit. “That’s the critical issue,� Gilli said. “If it becomes so expensive that they can’t attract buyers the whole project stops.� More information about the project is available at www. mountainviewcohousing.org.

A third possibility While it could be demolished or moved, there is also a third option for the house, which is to leave it on the site and possibly move it to a different spot. Zoning administrator Peter Gilli warned that the city is “trying

MV WHISMAN AIMS FOR BETTER SCHOOL SCHEDULE THIS FALL By Nick Veronin

S

tarting this fall, school bells will ring in concert at all of the elementary schools in the Mountain View Whisman School District. The new, uniform bell schedule should save money, and fix a hectic transportation situation that often leaves children unsupervised while they wait for their parents or the bus, district officials said. Another benefit: all K-5 students will receive the same amount of instructional time in the classroom. Craig Goldman, the district’s chief financial officer, said tightening up programming schedules across all the Mountain View elementary schools has been a goal of the district since it was created in 2001 out of the then-separate Mountain View and Whisman school districts. When the districts merged nine years ago, the existing bell schedules were not modified, resulting in the issues that the new bell schedule aims to fix.

“We were concerned with students not having adequate supervision after school,” Goldman said. Goldman is taking over as superintendent of the district next month. In the current system, children in the grades 1-3 are dismissed 20 to 25 minutes before fourth- and fifth-graders. As it now stands, parents with children in different grades have to make multiple trips to the same school every day, leave younger children unattended until their older siblings are let out, or remain on campus during the gap in dismissal times. The new bell schedule will reduce first- through fifth-grade end-of-day dismissal gaps to 5 minutes at all MVWSD elementary schools. New start and end times will allow fewer buses to transport the same number of students. Next year, two buses — down from three this year — will shuttle about 400 to and from school each day. The extra driver will be used to operate a bus on special education routes, saving the district money

Fixing the bells on the pricy outside contractors it has previously used for special education buses. “While transportation is a key component of the plan, it’s not the driving force behind the change. The two driving forces are student safety and consistent programming,” Goldman said. By assuring that kids don’t have much idle time before heading home from school, he hopes to increase student safety, while simultaneously saving money on after school supervision. The new bell schedule will also provide more uniformity to the district as a whole, ensuring that each school will offer the same ratio of instruction to recreation. Next year all schools in the district will begin between 8 a.m. and 8:35 a.m. for kindergarten through fifth-grade students. With the exception of Thursdays and minimum days, kindergartner dismissal times will fall between 1:30 p.m. and 2:05 p.m.; first-, secondand third-graders will be let out between 2:35 p.m. and 3:10 p.m.; and fourth- and fifth-graders will be released between 2:40 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. “Every solution brings its own problems,” Goldman said, acknowledging that the new schedule may not please everyone. “But overall, we think the alignment of the programs across the district will meet the safety, programatic, and fiscal needs of the district and its students.” V

The Mountain View City Council will consider the approval of the Final Del Medio Park Conceptual Plan on: Tuesday, June 29, 2010 7:00 p.m. City Council Chambers Mountain View City Hall 500 Castro Street, Mountain View This Plan incorporates input received from neighbors at two Del Medio Park public meetings held in February and March 2010. On May 12, 2010, the City Parks and Recreation Commission recommended approval of the Final Del Medio Park Conceptual Plan to the City Council. This item is on the Council’s consent calendar so it will not be discussed at the meeting unless a request is made by a Council Member or a member of the public to remove it from the consent calendar.

“Every city has their gadflies. Believe me, I talk to my counterparts,” she laughs. “When I get stressed, I think of where I’ve come from,” Salvador said. Despite the stress, she says, “I will always miss it.” After retirement, Salvador says she fully expects to live past 100, like her grandmother and greatgrandmother, who died at 113. In the next half of her life she plans to learn the piano, travel the world and spend more time with her immediate family who moved to the U.S. after she did. Though she has lived in a Mountain View condo during her work week for years, she is planning a major landscaping project at her home in Watsonville. Next week, deputy clerk Wanda Wong will take over as interim city clerk until the City Council appoints a permanent replacement for Salvador. V

Rainy winter magnifes West Nile virus threat By Emily Hamilton

the cork room and other interior structures set to be destroyed. “It is not the actual cork that is historically significant,” Wissel said. “Cork is cork. The real technical value of the room is the design and its function. That is what makes it so unique. When you look at it, it is obvious what the room was designed for and how it worked.” Despite the asbestos and lead paint contamination which has kept Hangar One closed to the public for years, Wissel fondly remembers exploring the hangar when the Moffett museum was still located inside, saying it was “like shaking hands with Charles Lindbergh.” The last time Wissel was inside the cork room it was being used for storage, he said. But the sliding overhead hooks used to hold the gas cells were still there. The structure is located on the third story of a building inside the hangar. If it can be preserved, Wissel believes it could make a “spectacular” walk-through museum exhibit. The room’s cork insulation, believed to be about five inches thick, kept a temperature-controlled environment inside for the fragile gas cells. Naval officers would sometimes take refuge in it during the hot summers, Wissel said. “The Navy vets I talked to said that on hot days they would go into this room and it would still stay remarkably cold,” Wissel said. “I don’t know why the Navy is determined to demolish it,” Wissel said. “There are lots of steelframed rooms they are going to keep. To say this one won’t survive doesn’t make any sense.” According to preservationist and environmental cleanup expert Lenny Siegel, saving the cork room is not too large an obstacle for the Navy. “It is practical,” Siegel said in an e-mail. “It may cost a little, depending upon how much sampling is required. We’re talking about dust that might contain PCBs, lead, and asbestos, some of which may have penetrated the porous materials. They could easily remove and contain (the cork room) for storage, with treatment and/or sealant to be applied later.” The Navy has posted a list of items to be salvaged from inside Hangar One at www.bracpmo. navy.mil with Moffett Field’s environmental documents. Items include some explosion-proof lights, man cranes that run on a monorail on the hangar’s ceiling, an elevator cab, two pieces of the hangar’s siding, three of the hangar’s numerous window panels and a California historic civil engineering plaque. The double doors and overhead rack from the cork room will also be preserved.

pril showers may have brought something more than May flowers this year — a bigger problem with West Nile Virus. Fifteen dead birds testing positive for West Nile virus have been found in Santa Clara County already this year, said Russ Parman, the acting district manager for the Santa Clara County Vector Control District. One of these birds was found in

Mountain View, along with one in south Palo Alto and another in northern Los Altos. “Spring rains have left a lot more water for mosquitoes to breed in,” Parman said. “It’s kind of a weird year in that we’re up to 15 positive birds now, compared to 14 total last year.” On Friday, June 11, Vector Control conducted its second aerial survey of the year. The operation covered 80 miles in the southwest San Jose-Cupertino-Campbell area

in search of neglected pools, which are a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Parman said state risk models have pinpointed this area as particularly active, which indicates a higher risk of human cases. District officials will be monitoring this area extremely closely. Dead birds are an important indicator of West Nile virus. Crows can hugely amplify the virus within a mosquito population in a sort of positive feedback loop. A dead bird releases the virus into its blood

stream and then becomes a tasty meal for adult mosquitoes, which go on to infect other birds and potentially humans. So far this year, there have been no human cases reported in California. The disease causes severe flu-like symptoms in those who are particularly susceptible, such as people with compromised immune systems, diabetics, or people over 50. “Eighty percent of people who get the virus never know they have it,” he said.

and picture sharing. The network also has a bulletin board feature, where open discussions and forums are moderated by Zoomz staff, some of whom are first-generation college graduates, like Carlos Torres. Torres, the Zoomz webmaster, went to Santa Maria High School on the California Central Coast. He said that although his parents were supportive of his effort to attend college, they were not familiar with the process of applying and could provide little more than encouragement. He said he would likely not have been accepted to Santa Clara University — where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in commerce and management — if it had not been for a high school counselor who walked him through the application process. It is precisely that kind of guidance Torres hopes to provide to Zoomz users. “Giving them that motivation — that’s a huge sense of accomplishment in itself,� he said. “Giving them hope. If I could do it, they can do it, too.� Zoomz is not only for first-generation college students, however. Mackenzie Cooper, marketing

manager for Zoomz, attended Los Altos High School and graduated from Stanford in 2007. She is not the first in her family to attend college. All the same, she said, getting into college and sticking with it is no walk in the park. “There is a lack of clarity on how to get to college,� she said, “and then once you’re there, how to pay for it.� California high schools have, on average, about one college counselor for every 1,000 students, Cooper said. “Most high school students get maybe one meeting with their high school college counselor,� she said. She said Zoomz wants to give high-schoolers “the insight and encouragement necessary� to make it through college and foster a strong “college-going attitude.� Building that attitude — and building a new social network, — poses challenges to the Zoomz team. Cooper acknowledged that getting users to sign up is perhaps the easiest part of promoting Zoomz. Keeping students active on the network is another matter. Before coming to Zoomz, Cooper worked at Palo Alto-based Ning, a company that help people create their own personalized social networks. Zoomz is built on the Ning network. While at Ning, Cooper saw many networks spring

up and then fizzle out. Currently, she and her team have been promoting Zoomz in Bay Area high school college prep courses, where the site has been well received by students. “Anything we can do to get engagement and interaction is a plus,� Hansen explained. V

The most important thing people can do is to properly maintain pools and eliminate other standing water sources, Parman said. “Chlorinate and keep it circulating,� Parman recommends to pool owners. If a pool is going unused, drain it. If residents can’t afford pool maintenance, district employees can treat the pool with mosquito fish if necessary. Parman said that Mountain View will most likely be surveyed in the district’s third aerial sweep of the year. But as the weather heats up, many sources of standing water will dry up, reducing the mosquito population. “Personally, I’m hoping this thing tapers off a bit,� Parman said.

T

he saga of Hangar One is heading to a climax this winter as NASA and local preservationists fight to keep the Navy from stripping the historic structure’s siding away and leaving behind a bare frame to wither in the elements. The Navy claims it does not have the $15 million or more needed to replace the siding, and although some federal money is being sought, there are no guarantees in sight that anyone will pick up the tab. After years of haggling and tense negotiations that have involved Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, the Secretary of the Navy and the Environmental Protection Agency, actual demolition of structures inside the hangar is set to begin in August and the Navy has said it will begin removing the outside skin in December. For preservationists, the effort to clear away one of the metal buildings inside the structure is another lost opportunity to save an important part of the fabled hangar’s history. The Navy said it will be “impractical� to save the historic third-floor “cork room,� used to store the dirigible USS Macon’s fragile helium cells back in the 1930s. “The cork room is the most significant artifact in the hangar. It’s the only physical evidence of the Macon lighter-thanair era, which was the purpose of constructing the hangar in the first place,� according to notes written by Carl Honaker, the Navy’s last executive officer to serve at Moffett Field. But regardless of the cork room’s fate, the entire hangar could be lost if the Navy proceeds to remove its siding and there are no funds available to pay for recovering it. The only hope seems to be a $10 million request placed in the 2011 federal budget by Rep. Eshoo, which is hardly money that can be counted on at this stage of the budget process. Things did not look so bleak during a joint meeting in February when NASA and Navy officials promised that they are committed to preserving the hangar. At the time they said they were considering various options and hoped to get back to Rep. Eshoo in a few weeks with details. But since then, no announcements have been made, except that the Navy is going forward with clearing out some structures that remain inside the hangar. Unless the federal government steps forward with a commitment to cover the 200-foot-tall hangar, it seems almost certain that Hangar One is doomed. Local supporters who have worked for years to keep the hangar in one piece appear to be out of options. And NASA cannot support such a costly project alone. At this stage, it looks like continued pressure from preservationists, Rep. Eshoo and the federal government are the last and best hope to save Hangar One.

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

A STRONG RESPONSE TO CIBO RESTAURANT REVIEW I would like to challenge the restaurant review by Dale Bentson of Cibo in the June 12 Voice. First, why the suggestion that this Palo Alto restaurant would be more at home in the Midwest? In describing the physical layout, the reviewer could have done a little homework to verify his suspicion that it might have been a coffee shop. It was at one time one of the famous “Stickney� coffee shop restaurants. As for his view from the coffee shop area with booths along the windows facing El Camino Real, he could have moved to a booth a few feet around the corner and looked at a wall or service counter instead. Some of us enjoy watching the moderate traffic going by. He could have chosen to eat in an area with tables and chairs, and of course, with any choice of seating, he will have fresh, linen napkins. The next time he eats at Cibo, he could ask to be seated in the larger, more formal dining room with accompanying bar. This room lends itself to various configurations of tables for different size groups. The Khakis have been gracious and helpful to those of us who have planned several group events there (not the least of which was my 50th wedding anniversary).

Furthermore, Mr. Bentson doesn’t even mention the great service Cibo offers those of us using ambulating devices. There is no mention of accessibility in his box of “Dining Notes.� There are two entrances with accompanying parking lots — both of which meet accessibility requirements with designated handicap parking places and no curbs or thresholds. Many of us return frequently for Cibo’s great menu that seldom varies from many options. I have not heard anyone coming away disappointed in their choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner. The Khakis preparation and servicing can be depended upon to be consistently praiseworthy. Gwen Rogers, a frequent patron, Palo Alto

SHORELINE: A PARK OR A GOOSE FARM? Maybe the city could simply declare Shoreline Park for what it is — a goose farm — and leave it to the geese? The sheer number of geese and the amount of fecal material make the grass areas and the walkways unusable by human visitors. I love birds, but this is an unsustainable situation that threatens public health and safety. Barbara Callaghan Montalto Drive

ecently, I was driving with a non-foodie friend who inquired what restaurant review I was working on. “SliderBarCafe,” I announced. “What’s that?” she asked. “You know, sliders — minihamburgers.” She was perplexed as to why anyone would want a reduced-size burger. I said that by SliderBarCafe standards, anything on a miniature bun qualified as a slider: beef, lamb, chicken, sausage, vegetables, even bacon and eggs. She changed the subject. SliderBarCafe is worth seeking out, though, whether you’re a

foodie or not. It’s an updated, quasifast-food, breakfast and burger emporium, open since late March in downtown Palo Alto. SliderBar owes its existence to the White Castle fast-food hamburger chain, where the notion of sliders started. The burgers were originally dubbed “slyders” by White Castle in the 1920s. According to urban legend, the term “slyder” referred to its greasy nature that allowed it to slide down the esophagus with ease. SliderBarCafe in Palo Alto is changing those perceptions and has upped the ante considerably. While many bars and grills have added trendy sliders to their menus, they are usually treated as appetiz-

ers or bar food. SliderBarCafe, though, has turned sliders into a near gastronomic art form. The beef comes from Niman Ranch, which specializes in antibiotic- and hormone-free, vegetarian-fed animals. There are no deep-fat fryers in the SliderBar kitchen: Onion rings, chicken wings and french fries are oven-baked. Owner Ashwani Dhawan said: “Even our coffee is organic. We buy from the same roaster that supplies Thomas Keller’s French Laundry.” Dhawan, who also owns Mantra, the California-Indian fusion restaurant on Palo Alto’s Emerson Street, said that with his new venture, he wanted “something simpler, more mainstream ... something with smaller portions. ... I wanted the customer to be able to match hunger with portion size.” Yet I over-ordered on my first foray into SliderBar, choosing three American classic sliders and fries ($2.89 for one, $5.49 for two, $7.49 for three). Three was one too many for my appetite but I ate them all anyway. The sliders were bigger than the dollhouse-sized morsels I had imagined. The presentation conjured memories of Arnold’s Drive-In

on “Happy Days.” The pictureperfect burgers — with shredded lettuce, slices of tomato and onion with a slather of mayo — sat on an unadorned oblong plate. No disappointment in the flavor, either. The beef was coarser than in lesser grades of hamburger, and there was no greasy slider effect either. Those

little guys were for chewing and enjoying. The side of hot oven fries ($1.79) was a generous portion of nongreasy yet crispy strips of sliced potato, thicker than shoestrings and as tasty as any deep-fried See SLIDER, next page

potato. Ketchup and garlic sauce were available as condiments. The classic with fries was my favorite combination. On subsequent visits, I tried other options, reluctantly. The vegetarian slider ($2.49) came on a multigrain bun. The patty consisted of garbanzo beans, potatoes, onions, sunflower seeds and bell peppers. Spinach, caramelized onions, bell peppers and a roasted garlic sauce topped the slider. It was a worthy sandwich with loads of flavor. The only drawback was that it was crumbly and deconstructed faster than I could eat it. The Mediterranean slider ($3.69) was a Niman Ranch natural lamb patty that had garlic and ginger mixed into it. The multigrain bun enveloped crumbled blue cheese, olives, artichoke hearts, tomato, red onion and a garlic sauce that sat atop the lamb patty. There was a lot going on in one smallish slider, but the flavors sang. The amped-up chicken slider ($2.99) also had garlic and gingery elements and was topped with avocado, lettuce, tomato and chipotle sauce. While not overly spicy, this was not your average Chicken Little. Another favorite was the plump Italian sausage slider dog ($3.29). The bun was interesting: not quite a hot dog bun or pita bread, but more than a slice of white bread. The wrapper was pocketed and held the spicy sausage, caramelized onions, relish, mayo and ketchup intact. SliderBar makes soups as well; a bowl is $4.49. But you can also get just a little warmer-upper, with a “shot� of soup for 99 cents. One day, mushroom was the soup du jour. The shot was more than a traditional one-and-a-half-ounce jigger; it was several soupspoons’ worth, with sliced mushrooms afloat. The soup was tangy and rich. SliderBar offers a kids’ menu and a variety of salads in addition to all-day breakfast sliders. The classic American breakfast slider ($1.99) is made up of English muffin, fried egg, bacon and American cheese. Other breakfast options are Mediterranean, California and Italian breakfast sliders. Beverages include a large variety of organic coffees and teas as well as iced coffees, yogurt shakes, Italian sodas and traditional fountain colas. There are 16 wines available by the glass or bottle. Prices range from $2.99 per glass to $39.99 for a bottle of decent French Burgundy. Eight beers are available by the pint or pitcher ($2.99-$9.99). Overall, SliderBarCafe provides a more healthful and sustainable approach to traditional American fast-food fare, a higher quality than chains dare approach. That rates an A-plus in my book. V

NMOVIEREVIEWS

THE A-TEAM - 1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Cue the theme song: It’s another TV remake for the big screen. The title “The A-Team� refers to an “alpha unit� of elite Army Rangers, but the only thing top-of-the-line about Joe Carnahan’s stupefying action movie is the budget. The movie retains the basic premise of the TV show, with the team framed for theft and murder, dishonorably discharged, and incarcerated. Plan-loving Hannibal affects an escape, and the team operates off the grid, righting wrongs and seeking to clear its good names. Rated PG-13 for intense action and violence, language and smoking. One hour, 59 minutes. — P.C.

KARATE KID ---

(Century 16, Century 20) The reboot of the 1984 classic that pit underdog Daniel Larusso against merciless bullies offers the same crowd-pleasing charm but with a contemporary twist. “The Karate Kid� reflects both globalization and bonecrunching stylistics, packaging dislocation and violence as picture-postcard entertainment stamped in China. This protagonist (Jaden Smith) and his widowed mother (Taraji P. Henson) move from Detroit to China. Following the original movie’s narrative formula, boy meets girl (Wenwen Han). Boy repeatedly gets beaten up by a gang of bullies (led by Wang Zhenwei). Enter the apartment maintenance man and latent grand master of martial arts (Jackie Chan) to mentor Dre for an approaching tournament, where the underdog can face his opponents on a level kung-fu mat. Rated PG for bullying, martial-arts action violence and mild language. In English and Mandarin with English subtitles. Two hours, 20 minutes. — P.C.

SOLITARY MAN ---

(CineArts) Michael Douglas plays a character who learns he has a “heart irregularity� in the new independent drama “Solitary Man.� In the context of the story, the concern is literal, medical, but it’s also a diagnosis of his social ill. In a way, it also describes the winning idiosyncrasy of the film, which resists comforting sentiment. �Solitary Man� is the story of Ben Kalmen, a successful car dealer brought low after indulging in slippery accounting and cheating on his wife (Susan Sarandon). Kalmen’s life-changing mistakes all came in the wake of his diagnosis, raising the question of whether a self-awareness of his mortality has liberated him or damagingly unmoored him from the good life. The answer appears to be “both,� in ways dramatized over the course of 90 minutes. Rated R for language and some sexual content. One hour, 30 minutes. — P.C.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on July 28, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept. 3 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, located at 191 North First Street, San Jose, CA 95113. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ Benjamin J.
