High-speed rail price tag rises again By Gennady Sheyner

Hassan Kaziri, owner of the Union 76 gas station, says he may get rid of his full-service pump.

Fill ’er up with some nostalgia LOCAL GAS STATION STILL OFFERS FULL-SERVICE PUMP, FOR NOW By Nick Veronin

ust off of El Camino Real, on El Monte Avenue, a family operated gas station continues to offer full-service to customers willing to pay extra for an automotive checkup and a little bit of nostalgia. Those who pull up to pump

No. 1 at El Monte Union Service, a Union 76 station located at 1010 El Monte Ave., will receive a variety of services, including a tire inspection, fluid inspection and window washing. All that, and station owner Hassan Khaziri, or perhaps his son, who serves as station manager, will refuel the

car — at a cost of about 30 cents more per gallon. “It’s pretty old school, in my opinion,” Khaziri’s son, Amir, said as he sat behind the station’s cash register, “but people like it.” Khaziri said that people who aren’t mechanically inclined See FULL-SERVICE, page 7

Petitioners rally to save Hangar One By Daniel DeBolt

igning their names and writing notes on a petition, hundreds of people around the country are making it clear that Hangar One is an important piece of history to them, even as it is reduced to a bare skeletal frame in an environmental cleanup. An online version of the petition to U.S. senator Dianne Feinstein

had 226 signatures as of Wednesday morning. The passion of supporters was made clear in their comments next to their signatures. Many pointed out that restoring the hangar and reusing the 8-acre space inside would create new jobs in the area. “The hangar is a symbol of our will to reach beyond our grasp,” wrote U.S. Navy veteran Clayton Lambert of Palo Alto. “It is an Art

Deco symbol of the birth of Silicon Valley. It is important to keep it, as a big reminder of our ability to realize our dreams ... even if they are bigger than life.” Mountain View resident Julie Lovins comments’ may reflect those who see the removal of the hangar’s siding as “painful.” “Hangar One is both a historic See HANGAR ONE, page 9

alifornia’s planned highspeed rail line could cost billions more than the state’s initial projections indicated, according to newly released documents from the agency spearheading the project. The California High-Speed Rail Authority released environmental impact reports for two Central Valley segments of the proposed line, which is slated to stretch from San Francisco to Los Angeles and reach speeds of 220 mph as it passes through the middle of the state. The two reports — covering the Fresno-to-Merced and Merced-to-Bakersfield segments, respectively — indicate that the combined cost for the Central Valley section would be at least $10 billion and could be higher than $13 billion. Previous estimates had the price tag for this section of the line at about $7 billion. The revisions should come as no surprise to legislators and critics of the controversial project, for which voters approved a $9 billion bond in 2008. At the time, the project carried an estimated price tag of $33.6 billion. The rail authority in 2009 revised the

projected price tag to $42.6 billion — a figure that local watchdogs and state analysts claimed was still too low. The Palo Alto-based group Californians Advocating Responsible Rail Design (CARRD) released its own projections in February, estimating the price tag at about $65 billion. The group used details from the rail authority’s own plans to come up with the estimate. In May, the state’s nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office issued its own report largely confirming CARRD’s estimate and projecting the cost of the project at about $67 billion. “We knew the costs were in a different ballpark,” said Elizabeth Alexis, co-founder of CARRD. “We wanted the authority to start talking about that ballpark sooner or later. “A project of this size is not in the realm of financial possibilities,” she added. “So you either just say no to the project or you make some changes.” Legislators have also been consistently skeptical about the rail authority’s financial projections and its business plan.

“I do as far as the people around, but there (are) a lot of traffic issues, like people jaywalk. So as a driver, many times I worry about pedestrians just jumping into the walkway, and the police force really don’t monitor as well as they should.”

NECKLACE-SNATCHERS CAUGHT A robbery suspect was arrested on the evening of Aug. 6 after he barricaded himself in the bathroom of an apartment on Latham Street while attempting to escape pursuing officers, a spokeswoman with the Mountain View Police Department said. Two other men were arrested and charged with aiding in the robbery. The victim, a 57-year-old Mountain View woman, was walking in the 500 block of South Rengstorff Avenue at about 4:34 p.m. when a man approached her and ripped her gold necklace from her neck, got into the back of a green Nissan Quest van and drove away, according to Liz Wylie, public information officer for the Mountain View police. The victim called 911 about 10 minutes later, Wylie said. While she was talking to a police officer near the scene of the robbery, a green Nissan Quest van drove by; the van was promptly stopped by police officers near the intersection of Latham Street and Escuela Avenue. The suspected robber bolted from the van. Two other men in the van — Alexander Avalos and Miguel Zamora, both age 19 — stayed put and were arrested

without incident on charges of aiding the robbery, Wylie said. The suspect was chased into an apartment complex at 1970 Latham St., Wylie said. As police searched, some residents of the complex told officers that someone had entered their apartment and locked himself in their bathroom. Antonio Sotelo-Lozano, 18, was located with the help of a police dog and arrested without further incident, Wylie said. The victim’s necklace was found in his shoe and she identified him as the one who had stolen it. Sotelo-Lozano was also identified by a woman who had been robbed of her necklace in a similar fashion on July 30, Wylie said. In that incident, a man approached a 25-year-old woman while she walked on Villa Street, snatched her necklace and got away in a waiting pickup truck. Sotelo-Lozano, who is from East Palo Alto, was booked into county jail on two counts of robbery, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery and one count of resisting or delaying an officer. Avalos, of East Palo Alto, was arrested for one count of robbery, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery and for violating the terms of his probation, which he See CRIME BRIEFS, page 10

People who rely on the county’s social services office in Mountain View may have a longer trek to San Jose when the lease ends.

Social Services office stays open, for now TIME ALSO SHORT FOR MAYVIEW HEALTH CLINIC SITE By Daniel DeBolt

A

new owner has other plans for a conveniently located downtown building housing a free health clinic and a county social services agency that serves the poor in North County. Losing the local site could send struggling residents to San Jose to obtain much-needed services. Fairfield Residential has proposed 128 apartments to replace the building, which is leased by the county and located just a stone’s throw from the downtown transit hub. It also contains the popular Mayview Community Health Clinic, which provides free or low-cost primary

medical care. Located at the corner of Moffett Boulevard and Central Expressway, it will temporarily remain the home to Mayview Clinic and a social services office, thanks to a recent 14-month lease extension that begins this month. It is one of two outposts for county social services — the other is in Gilroy — where people can obtain food stamps, cash aid and MediCal health benefits. The bulk of county social services are handled in San Jose on Senter Road, a long way to go for many clients. Many of the people coming in and out of the building on Monday afternoon were on bike or on foot, including resident

Lucinda Daniels, who lives near downtown. “We don’t have a car, we walked here,” she said. The experience appears similar to the DMV, but worse, Daniels said, adding that she had to provide a long list of documents to social workers to prove her income and what property she owned. Then she had to schedule another visit to come back for an interview. After having spent the whole morning waiting in line there, a man Daniels was with said, “I can’t imagine how bad it would be if it moves to San Jose.” Supervisor Liz Kniss, MounSee SOCIAL SERVICES, page 8

App makes waiting in line a thing of the past MV RETAILERS THE FIRST TO ROLL OUT ‘PAGO’ SMARTPHONE APPLICATION By Daniel DeBolt

A

Mountain View startup called Pago launched a smart phone app on Tuesday that promises to change the way people order food, buy merchandise and pay for services. With dozens of Mountain View businesses being the first to use it, I decided to buy lunch with it to see how it worked. The results were impressive. Pago was founded by CEO Leo Rocco, a Mountain View resident who has raised $2.1 million in

funding. It is being compared to lots of other mobile payment services, such as Google Wallet, which will soon allow people to pay for items with the swipe of their smart phone. But Pago appears to be entirely different, an app that allows you to skip lines and save a significant amount of time. After downloading the free app onto my Android phone, I found a list of eateries using Pago in Mountain View. My choices on Castro Street included Italian at Don Giovanni’s, burgers at Steakout and

Mediterranean food at Cafe Neto. I clicked on Taqueria La Bamba, and searched the drop down menus for a burrito. There was a funny glitch when it asked me what sort of meat I wanted on my veggie burrito, but that was resolved when I found that you could write a message to clarify or specify anything special, like “no onions please.” I used a pin I selected earlier, and a confirmation page showed up which I was supposed to use to obtain my $8 burrito (I included a gratuity that See PAGO, page 8

Homework: quality, not quantity

Foothill board chooses Air Force base

MV WHISMAN DISTRICT AIMS FOR MORE RELEVANT ASSIGNMENTS By Nick Veronin

T

he head of the local elementary and middle school district said that there will not be a major overhaul of the homework policy, despite recent moves from other school districts in the state aimed at reducing after-school assignments or limiting the impact on grades. Craig Goldman, superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District, said he does not believe his teachers are assigning too much homework. Still, Goldman said, he does see room for improvement in the quality of the homework being assigned and that he would like so see “meaningful shifts” toward that end. In defending his assessment of the levels of homework students receive, Goldman pointed to a recent survey, which found that the majority of responding parents — 68 percent — felt that the amount of homework their children were receiving was “about right,” 19 percent believed it to be “too little” and 13 percent said their kids

took home “too much” afterschool work. The results of the district survey come at a time when two school districts — one in Pleasanton and another in Los Angeles — are working to revamp their homework policies, in response to critics who say kids are being driven too hard. The Pleasanton Unified School District has instituted a new rule mandating that its middle-school students receive no more than 15 minutes of homework per subject each night; and high schoolers are to receive no more than 20 minutes. And the Los Angeles Unified School District recently instituted a rule stipulating that homework could count for no more than 10 percent of a student’s grade. That policy was quickly overturned, however, pending further review. Over the summer, Goldman’s district has been working with the educational consulting firm, DataWORKS, to train its teachers in so-called Explicit Direct Instruction. Through that training process, Goldman said, his teachers have been learning the

By Sue Dremann

“importance that homework be closely aligned with classroom instruction.” If a student is turning in incomplete or incorrect assignments, he said, it is likely not so much an indication of that student’s innate ability, but rather that the homework assignments are inappropriate. “We’re not anti-homework,” Goldman said. “We just want to make sure that we are assigning homework that’s meaningful and reinforces what’s being taught in the classroom.” Ultimately, while Goldman said the quality of homework ought to improve as a result of his districts work with DataWORKS, and through Explicit Direct Instruction, he expects that teachers will continue assigning homework at the same levels they have in the past. “Part of the reason for homework is to establish study habits,” he said, explaining why a healthy dose of after-school work is important, “so when students move on to high school and beyond, setting aside time to work independently is a part of their daily ritual.” V

T

he former Onizuka Air Force Station in Sunnyvale has been chosen as a new campus for Foothill College, FoothillDe Anza Community College District’s Board of Trustees voted on Monday. The new site does not replace the school’s main campus in Los Altos Hills. Board members directed the district’s administration to take the necessary steps leading to possible acquisition of the land on the east side of Moffett Field as a public benefit, they said in a statement. The board cited the opportunity to acquire the 9.6-acre property at no cost; its proximity to highways, public transportation and areas of population growth; and its visibility and location in a growing part of Sunnyvale. “This is an exciting time,” Board President Pearl Cheng said. “This direction comes after an exhaustive search and review of opportunities that would best meet the district’s objectives in finding a permanent home for the education center.” The new education center will offer year-round programs and services, including partnerships with other colleges and universities, high schools, regional occupational programs, community-based organizations, local government, business and industry, district officials said. Foothill has leased an 8-acre site at Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto for many years and had

hoped to purchase the property for the education center. But some residents were opposed, citing the need for future school district expansion as school-age population increases. The Palo Alto City Council voted in July to draft a letter to the district expressing its interest in the campus, but decided against moving forward after the Palo Alto Unified School District, which owns the land, voted against supporting a sale. Sunnyvale Mayor Melinda Hamilton and Vice Mayor Jim Griffith told the board they are enthusiastic about possibly having Foothill-De Anza open a center in their community. The City of Sunnyvale serves as the local redevelopment authority overseeing the disposal and reuse of the Air Force property. “We are thrilled to hear you are interested in coming to Sunnyvale,” Hamilton said. Griffith described the education center as a good match for the base reuse, envisioning it as a place where students could intern at surrounding high-tech companies and area workers and displaced armed forces personnel could gain additional education. The district must do an environmental impact report of the site before a final transaction could take place, board members said, and the Sunnyvale City Council, as local redevelopment authority, must amend the Onizuka redevelopment and reuse plan to specify See FOOTHILL, page 11

Google’s self-driving car in five-car crash By Daniel DeBolt

G

oogle’s self-driving cars have traveled 160,000 miles without incident, but that changed last week when one was behind a five-car collision on Charleston Road. A Google spokesperson told the Voice that the robotic Toyota Prius was clearly being driven by a human during the trip when the accident occurred on Friday, Aug. 5. A witness to the crash named Tiffany Winkelman reportedly said that Google’s robotic Toyota Prius rear-ended a second Prius, which then hit the Honda Accord she was riding in, which pushed another Accord into the fifth car, another Prius.

especially appreciate the service. “If we see anything under the hood that needs attention, we bring it up to them,” he said. Unfortunately for Khaziri, who has run El Monte Union Service since 1993, the number of patrons taking advantage of the full service pump at his station have dwindled over the years — especially recently, as the faltering economy has put a squeeze on people’s wallets, while gas prices continue to rise. Some days four people may pull up to pump No. 1, he said, some days nobody does. “We’re at the point where we are debating whether we want to continue offering the service.” Khaziri doesn’t lose money by keeping the full-service pump up and running. However, he does worry that he may lose customers during rushes, when all the selfservice pumps are occupied. He is unable to change the price of the self-service station manually, and said he understands why someone would not want to pay for the extra services nor wait for another selfservice pump to open. On a recent morning, when the Voice visited El Monte Union Service, about four customers used Khaziri’s five self-serve pumps, but no one requested full service. One of those patrons, David Rassai of Los Altos, has been a regular at Khaziri’s station for years. Though he never uses the full-service option, he said it would be a shame to see Khaziri give up on offering full service. It reminds him of the good old days, he said, and besides “there will always be a few people who want to have full service.” For the time being, Khaziri has not decided one way or another. “We’re open,” he said.

person said he did not know how many cars were involved. “We regret that a Google driver recently caused a minor accident, and we’re grateful that no one was hurt,” said a Google spokesperson in an email. “Safety is our top priority. One of our goals is to prevent fender-benders like this one, which occurred while a person was manually driving the car.” The incident came to light when a reader of online blog

Jalopnik sent in a photo of the car after the crash. It appears to have occurred behind Mountain View’s Costco, near Google headquarters. The car is not shown with any major damage. “Since it involved 5 vehicles, we wanted to make sure there were no injuries and facilitate the exchange of names,” said police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. “Essentially, it was five car fendSee GOOGLE CRASH, page 9

tain View’s representative on the Santa Clara County board, said in a statement that she would fight to have the center relocated nearby, but the rest of the board must agree, and times are tight. The county would also have to find another building to lease, and it’s hard to imagine another location as conveniently located near a major transit hub. “I fully support the Social Services Agency having an office in the North County,� Kniss said. “When our lease at the current location is up, should the owner not renew, I’ll seek relocation nearby.� Shamima Hasam, CEO of the Mayview Clinic, said that even though Mayview has clinics in Palo Alto and Sunnyvale, most of Mayview’s clients use the Mountain View office because it is near transit. With two to three doctors on duty, the office sees up to 60 low-income patients per day, providing a range of services, including free mammograms and prenatal care. “We have to relocate, we cannot just close it,� Hasam said of the Mountain View office, which receives a free sublease from the county.

But it is uncertain whether the county will find it affordable to provide the clinic free space at another location. “With the budget problems the county has we don’t know what is going to happen,� Hasam said. “It is a really difficult situation for us.� Regardless of when the site must be vacated, the county is planning to soon move some of the social services staff at the Moffett office to Senter Road. Kniss’ chief of staff, Pattie DeMellopine, said that clients in Mountain View would not be affected because those employees serve clients who already have benefits and do not have to meet clients face to face. Plans for “gateway� property The 1.83-acre site that holds the county building has been eyed by city officials as an important “gateway� to downtown. Some city council members say redevelopment there would improve Moffett’s connection to Castro Street. At a meeting in late June, new owners Fairfield Residential proposed a high-density housing project for the site, with up to four stories of apartments above a two-story parking garage, with one level underground. Fairfield vice president Ed McCoy said Fairallow Pago users to skip lines. I simply showed my phone to the cashier with the confirmation page on it. “Ah, the veggie burrito,� she said, which was already made and then handed to me. “That’s it?� is what I thought to myself. “Do I pay you?� I asked. “Nope, it’s paid for,� she said.

field backed away from building ground floor retail in the project, which council member Margaret Abe-Koga opposed, noting that residents wanted mixed use on Moffett Boulevard in general plan update meetings. Other council members said the project would likely be a huge improvement even without retail.

The density equals 70 units per acre for the housing project on the site, which compares to 60 units per acre approved for the controversial Minton’s housing development on Evelyn Avenue. The city’s general plan update is studying 60 units per acre on the site, up from the 43 now allowed. City Attorney Jannie Quinn

said the city would be obligated to allow a higher-than-usual density for the project under state laws which allow a “density bonus� if it includes affordable housing as 10 percent of the project, as has been proposed.

was too easy. Not having given the application my credit card number, I imagined that my burrito was charged to my cell phone bill. It turns out it was paid for by a $20 credit all new Pago users receive. You are supposed to enter a debit or credit number into the app for regular use.

As I sat down to eat I had to wonder if there some meaning lost in the exercise of waiting in line, looking at the menu on the wall and verbalizing my desired meal. Probably not. If anything I saved some time, and the workers at La Bamba did too. And when I opened Pago again to look at the La Bamba menu, it asked me if I wanted to immediately check out with my last order, making it my “usual.� Could getting lunch really be any easier than that? Pago was launched Tuesday with the help of the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce, and according to gopago.com, it can be used at 53 Mountain View

restaurants and retailers, including Fleur De Lis florist, KFC, Starbucks, Baskin Robbins and Holiday Cleaners. (Perhaps because of a glitch, on Tuesday the app only showed 11 local business options). The app can also be used at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. To entice retailers, the first to join have been given free iPads to help track sales. Eventually retailers will be charged a 5 percent fee to use Pago, which is double the normal credit card transaction fee. But the ability to communicate with users and offer coupon deals and rewards to loyal customers will make it worthwhile, the company says.

Simitian and Alan Lowenthal have grilled rail authority officials at numerous committee meetings over the past two years and tried to get the authority to release a more realistic business plan before it could receive state funding. Simitian’s provision tying state funds to a new business plan died last year when then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger struck it down with a lineitem veto. Rachel Wall, spokesperson for the rail authority, attributed the increase in the cost projection to the additional engineering work that has been performed since the original estimate was released. She said the agency has always assumed the cost estimates of a major infrastructure project such as high-speed rail would be dynamic. “As we’ve done further engineering and worked further with communities to address their designs

No case was taken.” The self-driving Prius uses special sensors and cameras to navigate roads that have been premapped. The goal of the project is to reduce the number of deaths caused by car accidents and to reduce traffic.

and concerns, the estimated costs have changed,” Wall said. She said the rail authority plans to release an updated business plan in October with a revised cost estimate for the entire system. She said the authority expects the new estimate to be higher than its current $43 billion price tag. The new concerns about highspeed rail’s final price tag have not deterred state and federal officials from proceeding with the design of the new train system. This week, in fact, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood authorized a $179 million grant to California for various rail-related improvements. The grant includes $86 million to the rail authority for construction of the Central Valley segment. The rail authority will be accepting public comments on the newly released environmental reports between Aug. 15 and Sept. 28. The documents are available at the rail authority’s website, cahighspeedrail.ca.gov. V

Hangar One’s siding is in the process of being completely removed, as seen on Aug. 8. It’s uncertain whether Congress will approve $32 million for new siding.

HANGAR ONE

and an economic treasure, with many possibilities for productive reuse,” Lovins said. “It is painful to watch it being systematically destroyed.” The most common message in petitioners’ comments was that it is important to save the country’s history, a message that came even from those living outside of the U.S. “I lobbied for passage of the National Historic Preservation Act in 1966 to ensure Federal Agencies did not destroy our heritage,” wrote local historic preservation activist Bonnie Bamburg. “Hanger One

is the biggest Federal building in Northern California and it must be rehabilitated so that it can adapt to new uses and remain our visual connection to the lighter than air ships, WWII and the spirit that led us during that time.” About half of the asbestos- and PCB-laden siding on the hangar’s southern end had been removed by a Navy contractor as of Tuesday, providing a view of the frame that has not been seen since it was built during the Depression to house the massive U.S.S. Macon Navy airship. In the current economic downturn it is very uncertain whether Congress will fund a $32 million request for new siding in NASA’s

2012 budget, despite the economic stimulus it could bring. The Republican-dominated House Appropriations Committee appeared to kill that request in July, reporting that it was waiting on a study from NASA of alternatives to restoring Hangar One. But local Congresswoman Anna Eshoo was recently able to have the consequential language removed from the committee’s report — “ No funds are included for the re-siding project in fiscal year 2012,” — providing at least some hope that a wider vote by Congress could save Hangar One this year. The petition to save Hangar One can be found at tinyurl. com/4yll2tv. V

On the Facebook fan page, users can see regularly updated news, crime statistics, crime prevention tips and more. They can also read police Chief Scott Vermeer’s posts about a variety of public safety-related topics on the Chief’s Blog at mountainviewpd.blogspot.com, according to a press release. This isn’t the first time the department has used social media as an outreach tool for the public. Mountain View was the first agency of its kind in California to join Twitter in October 2008. Now its twitter.com/mountainviewpd account has more followers than any other agency of its size, a department spokeswoman says. In addition to social media, the MVPD partnered with WiredBlue to provide a free iPhone and Android application called “MyPD�. This app features the latest news, social media postings, department contacts and more. All forms, such as crime tips, photos and GPS information, can also be submitted anonymously through “MyPD�.

achieving a level of understanding in these courses similar to that of a senior in an advance placement class. He says the most driven students — those who not only take the course, but complete the supplemental take-home assignments — are gaining that level of competency. Nurmela hopes to have the data to prove his assertions by the end of the year. By that time, if all goes according to plan, Quantum Camp, which started out as a summer program, will be turning into a fully accredited school, with the ability to graduate students with the necessary requirements to attend the University of California and California State University systems, as well as to administer College Board-sanctioned AP tests. “There was such a groundswell for this idea,� Nurmela says. Three years ago, as he and Finnegan were putting together the idea for Quantum Camp, they envisioned forming it into a full-fledged school in a decade’s time. But with an outpouring of support from parents dissatisfied with the public school system, what began as a camp is looking more like a campus. Numela promises “a history program unlike any history program anyone has seen anywhere�

that an educational use is preferred for the property. Foothill-De Anza could then move forward with an application to the U.S. Department of Education for a public-benefit conveyance. The only cost to the district in obtaining the 9.6 acres would be the expense of clearing and preparing the site for construction, estimated at approximately $5 million, according to a board statement. The education center would be funded through a bond measure approved by district voters in 2006. The Onizuka property is located in the Moffett Business Park, a center for corporate headquarters and research and development. Park tenants include Juniper Networks, Yahoo and Network Appliance. The entire Onizuka site is 23 acres, approximately 18.9 of which can be developed. The Air Force has accepted a request by the Veterans Administration to use 4.1 acres and three buildings for research activities. Foothill-De Anza has been searching for several years for a

permanent home for the education center. In April, the district issued solicited proposals for properties of eight acres or more along the Highway 101 corridor within the district’s boundaries. The district needs about 50,000 square feet of building space, with the opportunity for possible future expansion to 100,000 square feet. This effort took place at the same time companies such as Facebook, Google, Apple and others were rapidly expanding and leasing large blocks of commercial and research and development properties in Silicon Valley. The district received one offer: a joint venture from development firms Orchard Partners/Lane Partners for a “build to suit� education center on a 10-acre site at 895 Kifer Road, Sunnyvale. The Onizuka site development would take several years. Even if the education center relocates from Palo Alto, Foothill College President Judy Miner said she hopes the college can retain leased space at Cubberley so Foothill can continue offering courses that are in greatest demand by residents of Palo Alto. Foothill’s Middlefield Campus offers serves approximately 4,000 students. V

by the fall of 2012, and more humanities and language arts courses to come. Currently, Quantum Camp offers a summer program, an after-school program and day courses that are primarily attended by home-school students. The school charges by the course. The 7th-10th grade science course is $695 for 30 hours of class time over 10 weeks; courses in pre-algebra on through calculus for 6th-10th grade are $595 for 30 hours over 10 days; Quantum Kids, the school’s K-5th grade program is $395 for 20 hours of instruction. Nurmela says that outsourcing engineering and other techrelated jobs to other countries is driven in large part by a dearth American mathematical prowess. That is not due to a lack of interest in science- and math-heavy jobs in this country, he says. Rather, it is the result of a school system that is failing to teach these concepts. “We have to train students early on to do science and mathematics,â€? he says. “If they arenĂ­t getting trained they arenĂ­t going to get good at it, and if youĂ­re not getting good science and math training in middle school, you are missing out.â€? An open house will be held on Aug. 18 at the Mountain View Quantum Camp, 2065 West El Camino Real, Suite C. More information can be found on the school’s website: www.quantumcamp.com.

The slow death of high-speed rail

B

ack in 2008, Mountain View voters and the City Council liked the idea of bullet trains zooming at more than 200 miles an hour between the Bay Area and Los Angeles, providing an alternative mode of travel that would be economical and more environmentally friendly. A majority of voters around the state thought so too, passing Proposition 1A with 52 percent of the vote and setting in motion what today has become what almost everyone agrees is a colossal, mismanaged mess, just barely staying alive. But the likelihood of that happening is withering as the economy remains stagnant and Congress appears headed toward massive cuts in federal spending. At the state level, Sen. Joe Simitian and other legislators have publicly questioned the authority’s business plan as well. These and other recent developments have sounded the death knell for this project. Consider the following: ■ In a study made public last week, a highly-respected peer-review group of professors and transportation experts that report to rail authority CEO Roelof Van Ark said the authority has been using a flawed forecasting model to predict the number of passengers that will use the high-speed trains. ■ The agency’s public relations firm, Ogilivy Public Relations Worldwide, resigned about a month ago after fulfilling less than half of a 4-1/2-year, $9 million contract. ■ Another public relations faux pas was the unexpected departure of Jeffrey Barker, the rail authority’s deputy director in charge of communication, who failed to provide a timely response to a public information request from a watchdog group, allowing it to drag on for months. The organization was seeking release of the critical peerreview report, and was successful only after filing a chronology of its request with the authority. The report was released the following day, the same day that Barker resigned, saying he is going “to pursue other endeavors.” ■ On the economic front, the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives, including the budgeting process, has left little doubt that further federal support for high-speed rail will be drastically cut or eliminated altogether. By any yardstick, the high-speed rail project is simply far too financially ambitious for the state to undertake at this time, when basic services have been cut to the bone and additional cuts could be on the way as a result of more federal belt-tightening. The idea of paying debt-service on nearly $10 billion in bonds makes no sense in this fiscal environment. High-speed rail supporters have enormous obstacles to overcome in order to get this project back on track. They need a convincing business plan, a new management team, and most importantly, reliable funding sources that don’t commit the taxpayers to unaffordable subsidies of construction and operation. HSR is looking more and more like a pipe-dream. It’s time for the legislature to take the initiative and either provide the leadership to unwind this project, presumably through passage of another state ballot measure that counteracts the requirements of Prop. 1A, or by finding and embracing a new financing model.

TARP, RUST REMOVER WOULD SAVE HANGAR ONE

MORE CONCERN ABOUT SALLY LIEBER

The best way to save Hangar One is to cover it with a tarp or apply rust remover all over its structure. Mountain View plus Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Cupertino, Santa Clara, San Jose, Milpitas and other Bay Area cities should all donate funds to save the hangar. George Edge Eunice Avenue

I wholeheartedly agree with the letter from Sharon (Not a fan of Sally Lieber). The most memorable item she ever came up with the last time she held public office was a bill to make it against the law to spank your own child. She wants to be a career politician like a lot of the other existing dead wood in Sacramento. If you want the poster child of Nanny government then vote for her — and I’m a Democrat. Jim Vinson Adele Avenue

MAKE A DIFFERENCE You point out in your Aug. 5 editorial “Redistricting makes a difference for city” that, if the current plan holds, Mountain View will be in new state Senate and Assembly districts in 2012. Still, our city will be in districts that have far more Democrats than Republicans, and the only contests will likely be in Democratic party primaries when no incumbent is running. For the past decade, the California Democratic party has allowed members of no party (registered “decline to state”) to vote in its party primaries. Before the June 2012 primary, residents who want their votes to count will probably need to register as Democrats or “decline to state.” But voting is not the only way to make a difference. A person of any age and citizenship who joins a campaign or just writes letters to editors can sway voters by the dozens, hundreds or thousands. So, at this time of reckoning for our state, nation and planet, let me encourage folks to start campaigning for the causes and candidates they favor. If we leave campaigns to the current politicians and special interest groups, we will become increasingly impoverished, at risk and enslaved. Gary Wesley Continental Circle

LIEBER’S SPANKING BILL HURT HER IMAGE In response to a July 22 letter, I also find it extremely difficult to understand why anyone would vote to return Sally Lieber to public office. There is little doubt that Lieber’s six years as a member of the state Assembly was a disaster. And who can forget the heavily ridiculed campaign by Lieber to make spanking children a crime that made the Legislature look “kooky.” Clearly, Lieber became the object of mockery from coast to coast via print and television comics for her proposal to criminalize spanking a child. As could be expected, the proposal died an embarrassing death. Al Stuetzle E. El Camino Real

WATER DISTRICT MUST REVISE PLANS The Santa Clara Valley Water District’s flood basin ideas for Mountain View are getting overanalyzed and not enough attention is being paid to concerns of Mountain View citizens. See LETTERS, next page

Continued from previous page

It appears that the water district has gotten themselves into a rut with their perceived need to put flood basins in place throughout the city. Mountain View citizens have stepped up, conducted research and given the historical and current facts on the threat of floods in MV to the Water District. However, the water district has not revised its flood basin plans accordingly. Storing water in the quarry is another issue — we do not want the water contaminated in this type of storage. Why is it no one wants to do preventative restoration instead of always looking back in retrospect, saying, “We should not have done that.� We do not need to manipulate lands (cutting down trees, taking open spaces) in Mountain View to build flood basins that are not needed. Please, do not destroy the Cuesta Annex. We the citizens of Mountain View need and want to keep the land as is — it is used for exercise, seeing nature (remember nature?), the beauty of the habitat, the animals and plant life. Not very many people are natives of this area and we need to hold on to some “’virgin� land — that is looking at history! Let’s be forward thinkers and save this annex now. If we don’t stand up now to preserve what little we have left, it will be too late. We cannot go backwards. Denise Pinto Harpster Drive

PEOPLE BUY, BUSINESSES PRODUCE Our economic cycle is driven by people buying goods that businesses produce. We need both to revive our economy. The question is: who lacks the funds to fuel their side of the cycle — people who buy goods or businesses that produce them? Hint: Businesses have record cash reserves, strong balance sheets, and are not hiring. How are the people doing? They’re deep in debt, losing their homes, and experiencing record unemployment. Platitudes like “belt tightening� are just silly in this moribund economy. Who has the resources to resuscitate the spending flow when businesses are plump and people are poor? Only one institution — our own government — by creating jobs in any way they can to kick start the economic cycle that needs both buyers and producers. Businesses are plump and people are poor. Now’s the time to even the score. Allen Price Fairmont Avenue

Midweek munching at Los Altos market MOUNTAIN VIEW FARMERS’ MARKET’S EVENING TWIN IS A STAR By Alissa Stallings

othing is more relaxing to me than heading out to the farmers’ market. It delights the senses with vibrant colors, a bounty of new and familiar temptations for the palate, music floating on the breeze, the air tinged with the sweet smell of peaches, the ripe scent of tomatoes, and sharper scent of fresh herbs and potted plants. It’s at the market that I experienced nectaplums, jujubes, French apricots, and squash blossoms, amongst other rare hybrids and seasonal treasures.

Everyone heads out to the Mountain View market on Sunday mornings. Run by the California Farmers’ Market Association, it remains the most attended in the Bay Area. But if you haven’t attended its twin in Los Altos on Thursday evenings, you are missing out. It’s run by the same group, and features a mix of fresh produce and food booths so you can enjoy dinner at the market, said Ryan Slover from the Market Association. You’ll find some of your favorites from the Sunday market, as well as some locals that are exclusive to Thursday nights. “It’s a great opportunity to pick

Ossobuco is a classic dish from Milan and features braised Veal shanks in a white wine and tomato sauce. Our simple, yet elegant recipe will be a family favorite for years to come.

Preparation instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in foil pan. Add the onion, carrot and celery. Cook until the vegetables soften, about 10 minutes then drain the oil. 3. Meanwhile, heat the other 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a foil pan. Dredge the veal shanks in the our, coating on all sides and shake off the excess our. When the oil is hot, slip in the shanks and brown them on all sides. This should take about 6-7 minutes per side. Remove the veal shanks and place them in the ďŹ rst pan on top of the cooked vegetables. 4. Add the wine, butter, chicken broth, tomatoes, pepper and salt to the pot. The liquid should come at least two thirds of the way to the top of the shanks. If it does not, add more broth.

5. Cover the pan and place it in the oven. Cook for about 2 hours, turning and basting every 30 minutes, until the meat is very tender. 6. Transfer the Ossobuco to a warm plate and carefully remove the strings. To serve place Ossobuco on a plate with Risotto Milanese, or Pastina pasta in herbed olive oil and garlic.

8FFLFOE up some local produce mid-week, enjoy dinner, and stroll with the family.” Slover says. The Thursday night market is seasonal, running from the first week in May through the last week in September. This year, the last market day is on Sept. 29. Peter Dietzel, another Market Association official, adds that they plan to have several tastings throughout the summer. “Everyone who has gala apples, for example, will enter and we’ll have a panel and judge who has the best.” If you aren’t an aficionado of farmers’ markets, you can’t get fresher produce than the Los Altos market unless you grow it yourself. Coming from just four miles away, Hidden Villa brings meat, eggs, and a variety of vegetables to the market. They are an educational farm that has day camps for kids, and all of their animals are humanely-raised and slaughtered. When I ask Aspen Kvicala , the farm’s animal husbandry intern, if Hidden Villa’s chickens are freerange, she laughs. “You bet, because I’m the one who has to herd them up at night and get them inside, and it takes me forever. They’re the happiest chickens I’ve ever seen!” Harvesting their small selection on the day of the market, this is the locavore pick for those who like to eat as close to home as possible.

Most of the farmers come a greater distance to be at the market. Geri Prevedelli-Lathrop and her stepson drive from Watsonville each week. Their family-owned Prevedelli Farms goes back four generations. “While most people think strawberries when they think Watsonville, we have 32 different types of apples alone, plus boysenberries, ollalieberries and pears,” she said. It’s all not eggs and berries at the market. There are baked goods, bread vendors, falafel stands, chicken, baked potatoes, corn on the cob, shaved ice and Afghan boulani. Local restaurants with stands include the Oaxacan Kitchen and Spot: A Pizza Place. I am particularly smitten with a booth run by two Mountain View residents: The g:m:me bakery. It stands for “granny to mom to me,” representing the handing down of traditional Irish recipes like soda bread and scones. It’s run by Matt and Yvonne Klinksick, who lived in Limerick, Ireland until three years ago. They make lovely (and highly addictive) scones. After sampling the chocolate chip scone (which Matt declared is a popular seller), I tasted the seasonal strawberry and the apricot (which Matt also declared a popular seller). “My wife is really the baking genius. I hand out the samples!” Matt joked. But I

walked away with multiple scones, so Matt isn’t too shabby on the sales side, either. There is always an unusual find at the market. Krunchy Kale from Mighty Mouth foods was invented by local woman Rachel Phelps, who started selling it at farmers’ markets. It’s been picked up by Country Sun, DeMartini’s and Whole Foods. Besides the baked kale snack with various toppings like cashews or balsamic vinegar, they have expanded their line to include See FARMERS’ MARKET, page 18

There are also plants and flowers at the market.

customers, and we keep seeing friends, and people we know, and we just got hooked in and we keep coming back. I also learned a lot about food here, talking to the other farmers,� he said. “It’s amazing how little I knew until I started coming to the market. My friends think everything at the supermarket is organic. They have no idea!� I was raised going to farmers’ markets in my hometown of Chico, a farming community, so I know how willing the farmers are to share knowledge along with their samples. Farmers’ markets are treasures, an extension of the community. A mid-week market that allows you to unwind after work, restock the crisper and not have to get up early is truly a joy. The market is an easy way to eat locally grown food, and be informed about what you eat. Get to know the vendors, bring your own bags or basket, and bring enough cash, preferably in small bills. V

NMOVIEREVIEWS

THE CHANGE-UP --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Fuddy-duddy family man Dave Lockwood (Jason Bateman) and irresponsible bachelor Mitch Planko (Ryan Reynolds) are walking archetypes. Mitch looks at Dave’s wife, Jamie (Leslie Bibb), and sees the committed love and support of a good woman, while Dave rues having missed the boat on years of promiscuity. Dave and Mitch wake up in each other’s bodies and are forced to live as each other for an indefinite period of time as they investigate a way to set things right. Rated R for pervasive strong crude sexual content and language, some graphic nudity and drug use. One hour, 53 minutes. — P.C.

COWBOYS & ALIENS --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) This entertaining genre mash-up — one part western, one part sci-fi — stretches believability but boasts an excellent cast and impressive action. When outlaw Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) awakes alone in the desert with fragmented memories and a high-tech device strapped to his wrist, he makes his way to a quiet old-west town run by gruff cow herder Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford) and kindly sheriff John Taggart (Keith Carradine). A deadly unexpected attack by alien spacecrafts forces Lonergan and Dolarhyde to work together. And Lonergan’s laser-blasting bracelet proves invaluable in the dangerous quest. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of western and sci-fi action and violence, some partial nudity and a brief crude reference. 1 hour, 58 minutes. — T.H.)

SARAH’S KEY --1/2

(Aquarius) Kristin Scott Thomas plays journalist Julia Jarmond, assigned by her magazine to cover the 60th anniversary of the Vel’ d’Hiv’ Roundup. An enduring national shame, the Vel’ d’Hiv’ Roundup found the French police arresting 13,000 Jews in Paris then transporting them to an internment camp before their final destination of Auschwitz. Coincidentally, the apartment Julia and her husband have inherited from his family once belonged to a Jewish family displaced during the roundup. Fearing the worst, Julia begins investigating personal histories: what became of the Jewish family, and what role her own family may have played. Julia’s investigation unlocks a storyline that plays out in flashbacks, that of 10-year-old Sarah Starzynski (Melusine Mayance) and her family. During the roundup, Sarah tries to protect her brother by locking him in a secret compartment (hence “Sarah’s Key�). By the time she realizes she may have done more harm than good, it’s too late. Rated PG-13 for thematic material including disturbing situations involving the Holocaust. One hour, 50 minutes. — P.C
