Shoreline ball fields win council approval By Daniel DeBolt

Steve Jobs is pictured in the bottom row, second from the right, in this 1965 class photo from San Ramon School in Mountain View.

Steve Jobs called Mountain View home as a child By Daniel DeBolt

A

childhood friend of Steve Jobs recalls that Silicon Valley’s quintessential entrepreneur was partly a product of Mountain View, where he attended school and lived until his early teens. On Friday, Mountain View resident Steve Hatt reminisced about a 1965 class photo of Jobs and himself at the now-closed San

Ramon School on San Ramon Avenue, just east of Rengstorff Avenue. Jobs was “motivated and not afraid to try something different,” and was a little mischievous and awkward as well, Hatt recalled. He said he counted Jobs as one of a half-dozen close buddies in the Monta Loma neighborhood. Hatt remembers Jobs attending Monta Loma elementary school,

and according to county property records, the Jobs family owned a house at 286 Diablo Avenue from 1959 to 1967. The Monta Loma neighborhood was a vibrant young neighborhood in the early 1960s, popular with Stanford professors and early Silicon Valley engineers. Hatt said that “everything was See JOBS, page 15

Dream Act hailed by local officials By Nick Veronin

O

fficials in the local community college district and immigrant rights activists are applauding the recent passage of a new California law that will make it possible for illegal immigrant students to apply for and receive financial aid from the state. State Assembly Bill 131, also referred to as the Dream Act, will allow anyone to apply for state financial aid — regardless of their immigration status — as long as

INSIDE

they meet certain requirements. “The Dream Act has been a legislative priority of the Foothill-De Anza board of trustees for a number of years now,” Becky Bartindale, a spokeswoman for the Foothill-De Anza Community College District, wrote in an email to the Voice. The new law requires those who wish to receive money from the state to have attended a California high school for three years or more, to have graduated from a California high school or attained an equivalent degree, and, if living in the

country without documentation, have applied to become a citizen or plan to apply as soon as they are eligible. “We are happy,” said Shaila Ramos, executive vice president of the De Anza Community College student senate. Ramos, who was snuck into the country along with her parents when she was 2 years old, has been working as an active proponent of immigrant rights at De Anza — working as a See DREAM ACT, page 8

ith the city’s ball fields more crowded than ever, the city’s youth sports leagues may soon find some relief. The City Council voted unanimously to approve the 6-acre “Shoreline athletic fields” project on Tuesday, allowing construction of two fields to begin near Shoreline Golf Links. The complex would include a Little League-sized baseball field with 60-foot base paths and a major league-size field with 90-foot base paths, along with a parking lot, bleachers, concession stand, picnic area and a playground. “We’re always trying to compete with everyone else” for space, said Mike Reelfs, president of the Mountain View Little League. “Anywhere we can have more fields for kids to play we’re all for it and we really hope this gets passed.” Mayor Jac Siegel called the project a “major milestone for the city” and said it was good to see the project finally come to fruition. Council member Tom Means said he remembered discussing the idea eight years ago when he was a city commissioner. The site, a former landfill that is currently used for city storage, is next to the south end of Shoreline Golf Links and is just across the street from Google’s Garcia Avenue offices near Amphitheatre Parkway. Within the footprint of the two baseball diamonds there is room for between two and four soccer fields, depending on the size of the soccer fields and the age of the players. A 2008 study found that the city had a 20-acre deficit in ball field space. That number is likely to be even higher, as city staff report that requests to use the city’s

ball fields have been increasing steadily over the past few years with the growth in popularity of soccer and other non-traditional sports such as lacrosse and rugby, which may also be played on the new fields. The latest cost estimate for the fields is slightly over $10.5 million but the city has budgeted only $10,080,000 for the project. Public Works Director Mike Fuller said costs could be reduced by removing the playground and cutting the size of the 165-space parking lot, which requires a retaining wall against the adjacent Crittenden slope. Council members expressed some interest in reducing the parking lot, but no one wanted to remove the playground. See FIELDS, page 10

Synthetic beats real in turf debate By Daniel DeBolt

T

he sentiment was all but unanimous in Tuesday’s City Council study session that three city ball fields should use artificial turf instead of the real thing. After studying the pros and cons, city staff recommended artificial turf for Crittenden Middle School, McKelvey Park and a new ball field facility slated for Shoreline Park. “My gut response would be that I would prefer grass,” said council member Ronit Bryant. “However, I tried to both ask staff lots of questions and See TURF, page 10

What are your reflections on Steve Jobs’ legacy? “I think Steve Jobs had a major impact on the world as a whole and this area specifically. I think a lot of us owe our livelihoods to him who work in Silicon Valley. I think it’s very unfortunate that he’s passed away at such a relatively young age.” Patrick Santos, Mountain View

“He’s definitely changed my life. I think I wouldn’t be out here (in Silicon Valley) if it weren’t for the products he’s built. And it’s amazing to me to think about all the people who can probably say the same thing. It’s very sad that he’s gone.”

the booth, Wylie said. From the gas station’s bathroom he saw the short, medium-build man get into a car, which was obscured by bushes, making it hard for the clerk to determine the vehicle’s make and color. The car — a compact — drove away, heading north on N. Shoreline Boulevard toward Highway 101. The cashier was unsure of the man’s race, but said he could have been Hispanic or white, Wylie said. Police viewed the station’s surveillance footage, but it was very grainy and is unlikely to aid in the investigation.

The Chevron gas station at 808 N. Shoreline Blvd. was robbed at gunpoint on Oct. 9 at about 9:15 a.m., police said. According to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie, the clerk at the gas station fell asleep behind the counter in the cashier’s booth and woke up to find a man in a black hooded sweatshirt and black jeans demanding money and holding what appeared to be a black revolver. The clerk gave the robber all the bills in the register and then fled out the door of

County renews Bullis charter amid criticism POPULAR SCHOOL DRAWS HEAT FOR PERCEIVED INEQUALITIES IN RECRUITMENT By Nick Veronin

B

ullis Charter School boasts higher test scores than any other charter school in California, its waiting list is lengthy and its K-8 programming is expanding at a rapid clip. Yet, according to some community members, the school’s successes only serve to mask the fact that it is run like a private school in a public school uniform. A recent public meeting of the Santa Clara County Board of Education — held Oct. 5 to determine whether Bullis’ charter ought to be renewed for another 5 years — served as a venue for a heated debate between supporters of the school and others who say that the school is discriminatory in its recruiting process and overly aggressive in its

fundraising practices. The county board renewed the school’s charter in a split vote, 3-2. The decision was celebrated by members of the Bullis board of directors and lamented by the charter school’s more vocal opponents. “We’re very pleased at the renewal,” Bullis board member Anne Marie Gallagher said. “We are looking forward to five more great years.” Critics, including Los Altos School District board member Tammy Logan and Santa Clara County Board of Education member Anna Song (who voted against the charter renewal), have accused the school of pulling the majority of its students from the wealthy neigh-

Council rejects, OKs developer requests By Daniel DeBolt

M

ountain View’s growing industrial base and high demand for housing shaped the scene at a City Council meeting Tuesday where only three of five large development requests passed muster. Council members were faced with five “gatekeeper requests” to allow the planning process to begin on four large housing projects across the city and to modify a previous request for a large office campus at 690 East Middlefield Road. Only three of the requests got the green light for planning, including a Prometheus Real Estate Group proposal for a 285-unit housing project to replace the Safeway grocery store on California Avenue, which is set to move to El Camino Real. Prometheus can also begin to design a 160-unit apartment complex to replace the Tropicana Lodge at 1720 El Camino Real. Both projects may be up to four stories in height. Archstone Apartments got the go ahead for modifications to a 333-unit apartment project that was previously allowed through the gate. The modification allows an increase from three to four

stories adjacent to the neighborhood of one- and two-story homes, but doesn’t increase the unit count. The project replaces existing apartments at 870 East El Camino Real next to the Sunnyvale border. Not so lucky was City Ventures, a residential developer

‘I don’t believe you should zone for the ups and downs in the economy.’ MAYOR JAC SIEGEL

proposing 28 row houses at 1951 Colony Avenue. Council members denied the request saying it would convert industrial space that could be used by small startup companies. Council member John Inks was the only one to vote in support of the project, citing the demand for housing in the city. Also not receiving a favorable decision was Dostart Development, which was looking for some assurance that the council

would allow a high density (1.0 floor area ratio or FAR) for its office project at 690 East Middlefield Road. A majority of Council balked at giving Dostart special treatment by separating the project from the city’s ongoing efforts to rezone the neighborhood in the city’s general plan update. Dostart wants to accommodate a major corporation next year and although the city’s general plan is supposed to be finished early next year, it has already faced several delays that Dostart apparently did not want to be subjected to any further. Dostart will now have to wait for the general plan update like every other developer. “Having another good corporate campus is probably important to the city,” said council member Mike Kasperzak. “This might be a place that’s appropriate for 1.0 (FAR) even if the rest of Whisman area isn’t. I would support the gatekeeper request.” In the end, Kasperzak and members John Inks and Tom Means were the only ones to support the special request. “We did outreach to hundreds if not thousands” of residents to update the general plan, said

MV Whisman trustees vote to raise their pay By Nick Veronin

I

n a split vote, the Mountain View Whisman School District’s board of trustees voted last week to give themselves a raise. With trustee Ed Bailey absent, board members voted 3-1 to raise the monthly stipend they currently receive from $252 a month to $260, roughly 3 percent more than they had been making. Trustee Steve Olson cast the dissenting vote. Ellen Wheeler, the board’s president voted in favor of the raise. “It just seemed equitable,” Wheeler said, noting that the trustees hadn’t opted for a raise since 2006 and that the teachers in the district were going to be given a 3 percent base pay increase this year as well. After taxes, Wheeler estimated that the trustees will take home about $245 each month. The pay increase isn’t about getting more money

for herself, Wheeler said. But she argued that if the board continually voted down raising its pay, the stipend would never increase. While the increase was nominal, Wheeler said it was important to regularly increase the position’s pay; she didn’t want to see the job of trustee become one only sought by those with higher incomes. Olson said that he understood Wheeler’s arguments in favor of raising the stipend, he felt that voting for such a minute increase was particularly pointless, in addition to the fact that “it never looks good when you vote to give yourself a raise.” “I respect the opinions of my colleagues,” Olson said. “I felt it just didn’t seem like a good time or a good message to send out.” The school district has recently made cuts to programs and allowed certain teachers’ contracts to expire in an effort to save money.

COURTESY SUE GALE

Keith Gutierrez demonstrates a traditional fire-making method at Deer Hollow Farm’s annual Ohlone Day.

OHLONE DAY AT DEER HOLLOW Deer Hollow Farm’s annual Ohlone Day festivities are set for Saturday, Oct. 15, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The familyfriendly event features music, traditional games and handson activities at the farm’s replica Ohlone village, which is

normally off-limits to visitors. Activities include acorn-grinding, shell-drilling and rope-making, all skills put to good use by the area’s original inhabitants. Expert demonstrations in archery, fire-starting and toolmaking are planned. Admission is $5; children under 2 are free. The event

is a fundraiser hosted by the Friends of Deer Hollow Farm, and is located at Rancho San Antonio County Park, Cristo Rey Drive off of Foothill Boulevard in Santa Clara County. Parking is limited, and about a 1-mile walk from the entrance to Deer Hollow. More information is at www.fodhf.org.

l Camino Hospital will mark a half century on Saturday with an open house event showcasing the hospital’s focus on cuttingedge medical technologies as well as giving the public a chance to meet Tomi Ryba, the newly appointed president and CEO of the hospital. The hospital will open its doors to the community on Saturday, Oct., 15, from 1-4 p.m., giving the public updates on the medical technology work of the Fogarty Institute for Innovation and current clinical trials taking place at the Taft Center for Clinical Research. Children’s fingerprinting will be offered, along with healthy cooking demonstrations and a raff le. The public will also have an opportunity to meet Barbara Dehn, also known as “Nurse Barb,� who has a regular health segment through local CBS affiliate KPIX, “Barb’s Daily Dose.�

Hospital representatives said that El Camino has pursued a tradition of innovation and cutting edge care from the very beginning. In 1966 — five years after its grand opening — the San Jose Mercury News wrote an article on the hospital with a headline proclaiming that El Camino was “Going All Out for Automation,� and in 1971 the hospital formed a partnership with Lockheed to create what it says is the very first medical information system in the world. In 1980, El Camino’s operating room was named the most technologically advanced surgical suite in the area, and Popular Science identified it as the “most technologically advanced hospital in the world� in a 2009 issue. El Camino Hospital’s Mountain View campus is located at 2500 Grant Road. More information on the celebration can be found online at www. elcaminohospital.org/50th. V

Coroner rules Cupertino shooterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death a suicide

T

he Santa Clara County medical examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office announced Tuesday, Oct. 11, that Shareef Allman, the man responsible for the deadly shooting rampage at a Cupertino cement plant last week, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Santa Clara County sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office initially reported that three deputies had shot and killed Allman, a 49-year-

old disgruntled truck driver who shot nine people at the plant, killing three. Allman died in a Sunnyvale neighborhood during a confrontation with deputies during a massive, 24-hour manhunt. Mountain View school children were affected when a nearby science camp was placed on lock-down and Mountain View and Alta Vista high schools, along with a preschool, were

evacuated as a precautionary measure. Capt. Kevin Jensen, an administrative coroner at the medical examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, said Allman had other wounds but that the lethal wound was a selfinflicted gunshot wound to the head. At about 4:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, Allman opened fire on about 15 of his fellow employees at a meeting at

the Lehigh Southwest Cement Plant at 24001 Stevens Creek Blvd. Killed were John Robert Vallejos, 51, and Mark Munoz, 59, both of San Jose, and Manuel Guadalupe Pinon, 48, of Newman. Allman fled the plant and carjacked a woman at gunpoint shortly before 7 a.m. in a Hewlett-Packard company parking lot. When the woman

refused to turn over her car, he shot her once and fled. She suffered injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening. A manhunt ensued, during which Allman was found the following morning crouched behind a car parked on Lorne Way in Sunnyvale. Three deputies approached Allman and attempted to confront him, but when they saw that he had a handgun, all three deputies fired at him, Sheriff Laurie Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Bay City News Service

representative and administrator for two student groups pushing for immigration reform. “We have the right to have an education,” Ramos said of herself and the many others like her in California and throughout the country. It is a view not shared by the Center for Immigration Studies, a New York-based think tank that bills itself as being for lower rates immigration while simultaneously being pro-immigrant. “I don’t think that you can argue that it’s a human right when we don’t have a completely socialized education plan,” Brian Griffith, a spokesman for CIS said. Griffith took the stance that ultimately when it comes to funding programs like Cal Grants — which, under the new law Ramos will be eligible for — it is a “zero-sum game.” Unless the state has an unlimited amount of funds, he reasoned, the new law will inevitably take money out of the hands of U.S. citizens. But according to Lori Nezhura, legislative director for the California Student Aid Commission, the pool of money Dream Act students will draw upon for Cal Grant money won’t run out. Though Dream Act students can qualify for both “competitive” and “entitlement” Cal Grants, Nezhura said, there is almost no chance any Dream Act students will be awarded a competitive grant, since priority for them goes to California residents and there aren’t enough of those grants to go around. However, the state guarantees that all who qualify for an entitlement Cal Grant will receive a predetermined amount of money, therefore, those who qualify for these grants under the Dream Act will not diminish the money received by California residents, nor will they deprive them of grants. One Mountain View resident has put his bachelor’s degree from Santa Clara University to use in the nonprofit sector, even though he is not a legal citizen. Jose Ivan Arreola moved to Mountain View from Durango, Mexico when he was 4 years old. “It was an opportunity,” Arreola said of his parent’s decision to migrate north. “They wanted more for me. I think that was really their greatest wish.” Arreola has spent his entire life in Mountain View and was able to secure private scholarships that paid for his entire education at Santa Clara University. He uses his degree in the volunteer work he does with Educators for Fair Consideration, an advocacy group that fights for the passage of laws like the Dream Act. “I’m very fortunate to have a Continued on next page

Simitian’s red-lightcamera bill vetoed

GATEKEEPER Continued from page 5

By Gennady Sheyner

A

proposal by Sen. Joe Simitian to set new restrictions on red-light cameras hit the wall Thursday (Oct. 6) when Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed it. Senate Bill 29 would have prohibited cities from using red-light cameras to raise revenues and required signs at all locations where such cameras are in use. It also sought to make it easier for ticketed drivers to challenge the citations. The bill had passed unanimously in the Senate and cleared the Assembly by a 70-4 vote before Brown vetoed it. In his veto message, Brown wrote that the bill “standardizes rules for local governments to follow when installing and maintaining red light cameras.” “This is something that can and should be overseen by local elected officials,” Brown wrote.

TURF Continued from page 1

Googled the subject myself. I didn’t find flags that were of concern to me. Artificial turf seems like an acceptable solution.” Council member Margaret Abe-Koga had the only disagreement, saying that only McKelvey Park needed further consideration because neighbors who use the ball fields as a neighborhood park have opposed the use of synthetic turf there. No one else spoke against artificial turf during the meeting. Craig Goldman, superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District, said the artificial turf installed a few years ago at Graham Middle School has been a “great success” which should be matched at the city’s other middle school, Crittenden, where a 2.7-acre portion used for softball and soccer would receive artificial turf. “It is important to provide equitable facilities on both sides of the expressway,” Goldman said. Some people “feel that sometimes they don’t get what the other side gets.” This will “send a message that they are equally valuable to the community.” Because it resists trampling and doesn’t get muddy in the winter, city staff said artificial turf would

But Simitian, D-Palo Alto, called the veto a “lost opportunity.” “I think we can keep folks safe and still give the driving public a fair shake,” Simitian said in a statement. “I’m sorry the Governor didn’t agree.” The proposal to strengthen state regulations on red-light cameras emerged from Simitian’s annual “There Outghta Be a Law” competition. San Jose resident Vera Gil had proposed the bill after receiving several tickets from red-light cameras for a car she said she does not own and had never driven. Simitian said in a statement that he hears similar complaints from other constituents. “Discussion of the legislation over the past two years confirmed my initial suspicion that Ms. Gil’s case was just the tip of the iceberg,” Simitian said. V

allow increased playability of the three fields. “We’re putting a lot of money into those fields so they should be able to be played on as much as possible, Bryant said. The Graham field was used for 2,740 hours of playing time last year, more than double the 1,248hour average for Whisman and other elementary schools which use natural turf. If lights were added, Graham could host 3,200 hours of field time. Even while school is in session, “There’s just a lot of people walking on that space,” said Scott McGee, teacher and field coordinator at Graham. “It looks like nobody has been there. It is really amazing.” Natural turf would get “muddy and squishy” from rain, but McGee noted that the synthetic turf is well used even on rainy days. While it requires unusual cleanup costs — dog poop won’t decompose as easily, and there’s the daily pickup of gum, sunflower seeds and other debris at Graham — the maintenance costs of synthetic turf are $22 per hour versus $25 per hour for grass. And there are significant water savings, council members noted. The initial cost is higher for synthetic turf, adding $675,000 to the price of the Shoreline ball fields and $1 million every 10 years to replace it. City staff noted that old artificial turf can be recycled, and

Mayor Jac Siegel. “We got our input and we’re coming along and we’re being asked to go around it, right away.” He later added, “I don’t believe you should zone for the ups and downs in the economy.” Means criticized the city’s slow general plan process. “Here we are still thinking about it and people are thinking, ‘What can I build?’” Means said. “I haven’t heard one argument tonight what a reasonable FAR is. I don’t know what it is and I don’t think anyone else on this council knows. We won’t bear the costs of this, it’s not a dime out of our pocket. A lot of people thought this (general plan) would be done a few years ago. I guess we’re still working on drafts of it.” V

One study of 13-19 year olds found no difference in injury rates, while another study of college age users found rates of skin abrasions were three times higher. A study also showed that bacterial infections were no more likely on artificial turf and that volatile organic compounds from artificial turf were well below hazardous limits. While synthetic turf can retain more heat during the summer, as much as 40 degrees more than grass, Community Services Director Dave Muela said it wasn’t an issue because of the area’s moderate climate. “In other places the game is affected by it,” McGee said, adding that the heat can be seen coming off the turf in late summer, and players prepare by bringing extra water to those games. “The upside (of synthetic turf) is really much better than the downside,” said Mayor Jac Siegel, although he added, “I wouldn’t want to picnic on synthetic turf.” Some council members indicated that the use of synthetic turf should be limited to the three ball fields.

CTS Printex Superfund Site Mountain View, California EPA Signs Amendment to Record of Decision for Vapor Intrusion Pathway and Groundwater Remedy The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finalized an Amendment to the Record of Decision (ROD Amendment) which will address the potential vapor intrusion pathway and change the current groundwater remedy at the CTS Printex Superfund Site in Mountain View, California. The response action will address the potential health risk associated with long-term exposure to trichloroethene (TCE) and other Site chemicals of concern through the vapor intrusion pathway into current and future buildings that overlay the shallow groundwater contamination at the Site. Although the current extent of groundwater contamination has been reduced over the past 25 years, restoration of the shallow groundwater has not been achieved. Therefore, the ROD Amendment will address the remaining groundwater contamination to meet the cleanup goal. Consideration of public input towards the various cleanup options was an important part of EPA’s decision-making process. The Amendment to the Record of Decision for the CTS Printex Site can be viewed at either of the repositories listed below.

bachelor’s degree,” he said. “It is imperative that we progress and move forward with policies like (the Dream Act).” While sympathetic to the plight that drives so many to sneak into the United States illegally, Griffith remained firm on his position

that laws such as AB 131 will only serve to make illegal immigration more attractive. “Whether you call them illegal immigrants or undocumented immigrants, they have committed fraud.” Neither Ramos nor Arreola, however, feel that they have done anything wrong. Both drive home

the fact that they were not brought here by choice and that they only want the opportunity to be productive members of society. “We’re not here to steal,” Ramos said. “We want to get an education and give back to our community.” America, she added, is her “home.” V

on the playground,” said council member Ronit Bryant. “If we need to find another $500,000 from somewhere to do it right, we need to do it right.” Bryant asked if the city had talked with nearby companies about the use of nearby parking lots during games, such as those across the street used by Google. Community Services Director David Muela said there had been no formal discussions with those companies, but said it was probably inevitable that people would use those lots. There would also be 25 parking spaces available along Garcia Avenue. Using natural turf would save the city $675,000 in initial costs, but the council favored artificial turf in a study session the same night, with members noting that it would allow the fields to be used much more heavily. The artificial turf would have to be replaced every 10 years at a cost of $1 million, the city reports. A handful of rare burrowing owls that like to live around the golf course will lose 6-acres of habitat where the owls are known to forage for insects and small rodents. To make up for that loss, the city set aside 9.7 acres elsewhere in the park for the owl, including 7.2 acres that were once freshwater ponds at the golf course, 2 acres near Shoreline Park’s kite-flying area and a half-acre left on the southern end of the site. Those areas will be landscaped with grass, shrubs and rocks to attract small rodents and insects. The Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, which has been working to save the owls, supported the plan.

BULLIS Continued from page 5

borhoods of Los Altos Hills, while neglecting poorer neighborhoods in Los Altos and Mountain View. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had hoped that they would do something a little more forceful to ensure that Bullis Charter School fairly takes every child from the district,â&#x20AC;? Logan said. The Los Altos School District encompasses part or all of the three cities, and Bullis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is built on school district land and draws its student population from within the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries â&#x20AC;&#x201D; should reflect the community it serves, Logan and Song have said. John Phelps, who serves along with Gallagher on the Bullis board, said that his school is representative of the community it serves. Pointing to 2010 Census data and comparing that to the makeup of Bullisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; student body, Phelps said the school enrolled a greater percentage of black, Asian and mixed-race children than live in within the district. He admitted that the school enrolled Hispanic students at a lower rate than what was recorded within the district by the 2010 Census, but he noted Bullis only missed that mark by less than half a percent. Phelps said that the school does not keep data on the poor students it enrolls in the same way regular public schools do, but he said that up to 2 percent of the children at Bullis receive free lunches from the school. SOURCE OF CONTROVERSY â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of mystifying â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all the energy surrounding this renewal,â&#x20AC;? Gallagher said of the recent criticism of the school. Phelps agreed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been some unfair assumptions made,â&#x20AC;? he said â&#x20AC;&#x201D; namely that Bullis is only for the privileged and wealthy.

!(% Roll er MICHELLE LE

Gallagher and Phelps both postulate that the amount of fervor surrounding the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charter renewal process may be related to the demand for the school. About one-third of parents of kindergarteners in the district enter the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment lottery, but only one out of every six Bullis applicants get in. Demand is high because their school offers a kind of education that children wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get at other schools in the district, Phelps and Gallagher said. Art, performance, music and robotics classes are offered at Bullis and incorporate curriculum from other areas of study, like science, math, history and language. One example of interweaving lesson plans Gallagher pointed to was the collaboration between art and physical education: as the children learn about all the major muscle groups from their gym teacher, they are simultaneously building a model of their musculature in their art class, using modeling clay that they lay over an armature of a human skeleton. Speaking with Phelps and Gallagher, one thing is abundantly clear: these two are extremely passionate about Bullis, a school they have worked hard to mold into a model for other schools, locally and around the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the future,â&#x20AC;? Phelps said out in front of Bullis, looking with pride at the campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do is to provide a 21st century education for the kids,â&#x20AC;? Gallagher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the children to figure out why

education is meaningful to them.â&#x20AC;? Gallagher said she is upset by the accusations that Bullis is a school for children born with silver spoons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this day and age arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we beyond stereotypes?â&#x20AC;? she asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we just deal with the person in front of us, instead of calling them a certain type of person?â&#x20AC;? Loganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critiques of the school remain. She said that Bullis does not do enough to draw the Hispanic community and students from Mountain View â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who make up 25 percent of the Los Altos School District â&#x20AC;&#x201D; into the school. Gallagher estimates that only about one-fifth of Bullis students live in Mountain View. At the same time she said, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high â&#x20AC;&#x153;recommendedâ&#x20AC;? donations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; $5,000 for the current school year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; serve as a deterrent for poorer families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been numerous parents that have told me that it is very well understood that you should not think about going there unless you are prepared to donate the full amount per child,â&#x20AC;? Logan said. It is a charge that Phelps denies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public school,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no tuition. Anyone that wants to come and has their name pulled in the lottery may come.â&#x20AC;? In the end, Phelps and Gallagher said that while they disagree with many of the criticisms, they are trying to take them in stride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The charter renewal process does give us the opportunity to hear feedback,â&#x20AC;? Gallagher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are held up to the highest level of public scrutiny. We welcome the criticism. It gives us the opportunity to improve.â&#x20AC;?

s a re-telling of Aeschylusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agamemnon,â&#x20AC;? Dan Dietzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clementine in the Lower 9â&#x20AC;? fascinates and frustrates. If you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about this world-premiere playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greek roots, it could seem a strangely formal tale set amid the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Why, for instance, would a young junkie named Cassy, supposedly gifted with prophecy, be possessed by the god Apollo? And why would a highly intelligent woman celebrate the return of her husband by lighting candles all over the roof of her badly flooddamaged home New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lower Ninth Ward, thus turning it into an incredible fire hazard? Both of those elements â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cassandra and the lighting of a welcome beacon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are from the Greek but seem odd here. The incongruous meshing of Ancient Greek and contemporary

American eventually finds a tentative balance in director Leah C. Gardinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TheatreWorks production, largely thanks to a masterful and entertaining performance by Laiona Michelle as Clementine (a jazzy New Orleans spin on the name Clytemnestra). Michelle is a powerful force, especially as mother to her college-age son Reginald (Matt Jones), on leave from his studies at Columbia, and her daughter Iphy, who was presumed drowned in the flood though her body has not been recovered. Clementine awaits the return of trumpet-playing husband, Jaffy (Jack Koenig), who, along with so many thousands of Katrina refugees, has been trying his luck in Houston for nine months. After a crackling scene between Clementine and Reginald (as they light those infernal candles), Jaffy arrives home with a surprise: a teenage junkie he calls Cassy (Jayne Deely). Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping

her overcome her addiction (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been there, done that), and she used her gift of prophecy to help him land some quick cash. Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Reginald is almost as compelling as Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clementine. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a man of two worlds: black (like his mother) and white (like his father), local (he grew up in the Lower Ninth) and deserter (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to school in New York). Much more than the sketchily drawn Jaffy, we get a sense of Reginald as a young man of tremendous potential and as the troubled child of a (nowrecovered) drug addict. Like Michelle, Jones is adept at blending the formality of the Greek myth with the pulse of modern life. Though Deelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cassy is well performed, all twitches and starts, the character never seems quite of this world as much as a remnant of Aeschylus that makes the dramatic gears grind.

SPONSORED BY THE BROTHERS OF HOLY CROSS

-PDBM/FXT lighting designer Steven B. Mannshardt convey the destructive clutter of the Lower Ninth Ward with the shell of a house that is barely livable. Electricity is sketchy at best, and surrounding the house is debris, downed power lines and a sense of life in a shattered but somehow barely habitable landscape. There are too many moments when “Clementine” feels like a new play. Characters speak in exposition, telling each other things about history and their family that they already know, so it’s really for our benefit more than any other. There’s a certain classic formality to this kind of filling in the blanks, but in combination with the contemporary rhythms and humor of the dialogue, the mash-up can be jarring. And ultimately, the re-telling of “Agamemnon” set against the devastation of Hurricane Katrina is also jarring. It makes a certain amount of sense, this “blues riff” on Aeschylus as Dietz calls it, and there is some unquestionable dramatic power. But my guess is that this story would carry similar weight even if it weren’t set in the aftermath of a catastrophic natural disaster. In the Aeschylus telling,

Agamemnon has sacrificed his daughter in exchange for winds to blow his ships to battle in the Trojan War. Dietz uses the raging floodwaters to complicate the loss of the daughter, and we never really get to see why Jaffy might have made the choices he made. How would any of us act in a life-and-death moment? Dietz’s Jaffy makes a choice, but Dietz doesn’t quite substantiate that choice in Jaffy’s character development. Much clearer is Michelle’s Clementine, a respected nurse with her own complications stemming from the flood and her relationship with the man who once helped channel her prodigious talent for jazz piano. This tutor (Kenny Brawner) is less effective as the drama’s ghostly chorus than he is as the pianist in the hot jazz quartet on stage (John Worley on trumpet, Richard Duke on bass and Kelly Fasman on drums). It seems almost law that any story set in New Orleans has to include jazz music, and that law is effectively adhered to here. At first the music, composed by Justin Ellington, sets the scene and allows Brawner to sing some bluesy tunes. As the play progresses, the music becomes

essential to the story. Especially important is a five-finger piano exercise that becomes a haunting refrain, allowing us to forget the battle between ancient and modern and connecting us to the heart of a family in trouble. Unlike Aeschylus, Dietz makes room for hope amid the destruction and violence ��� a hope underscored by beautiful music.

engineering” for the neighborhood’s kids, who could often be found building electrical kits, like crystal set radios, from places like Radio Shack. The adoptive parents who brought Jobs to Mountain View, Paul and Clara Jobs, were a machinist and an accountant, respectively. He called his adoptive father a “genius with his hands” and said he wanted “to try to be as good a father to them (his own children) as my father was

to me.” Jobs reportedly was born in San Francisco to his biological mother, Joanne Schieble. She gave up Jobs amid family pressure to not marry his biological father, Abdulfattah Jandali, a Syrian Muslim who went on to become a political science professor. His biological parents eventually married and had a daughter, novelist Mona Simpson, whom Jobs later met and said he considered “one of my best friends in the world.” After sixth grade, Jobs reportedly moved away and attended Cuper-

tino Middle School and Homestead High School. It wasn’t long before Hatt said he saw Jobs on the cover of a magazine as the successful young entrepreneur who co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak. Hatt said people in the neighborhood loved to talk about Jobs’ success. “Everyday it inspires me,” Hatt said of having known Jobs. Perhaps Jobs was thinking of his hometown when he recently told the Cupertino City Council that if Apple could not build its new headquarters in Cupertino, “We have to go somewhere like Mountain View.”

District officials said most of their records from the early 1960s were destroyed. They could confirm that Jobs attended Crittenden Middle School for seventh grade and Monta Loma elementary school for a year. He apparently did not enjoy Crittenden, according to a Los Angeles Times report: “Jobs’ willfulness and chutzpah were evident early on. At 11, he decided he didn’t like his rowdy and chaotic middle school in Mountain View, Calif., and refused to go back. His family moved to a nearby town so he could attend another school.” V

His local connection may have also been why Monta Loma elementary school was one of the first to receive free Apple computers. Hatt said he remembers that his kids, who were attending Landels at the time, did not receive them until later. Hatt said it astonished him that news reports have made no mention of Jobs’ connection to Mountain View.

Council tackles the artificial turf question

A

lthough traditionalists might lament the day rubberized turf made from recycled automobile tires covers city playing fields, a report by staff members for the City Council finds that in almost every way, artificial fields are more efficient and preferable than the old fashioned grass. The council jumped on the bandwagon Tuesday, indicating during a study session that members were ready to consider projects to install artificial turf at Shoreline, Crittenden and McKelvey athletic fields. The council depended in large part on a staff report that found artificial turf comes out ahead of grass fields, although not for reasons one might expect. For example, the annual hours of maintenance required for a natural turf field is lower than the artificial model, due the need to spend time clearing litter like chewing gum and sunflower seeds from an artificial turf field as well as leaf-blowing to clear other debris away. And then there is the initial cost for artificial turf, which must be replaced every eight to 10 years, while natural turf is simply given a periodic rest so its grass can be resuscitated after a year of hard play. But constant use is not a problem for artificial turf, and that is where it chalks up a significant edge over grass — a result of being available for much longer periods of time over the course of a year. The city staff says an unlit artificial turf field at Graham Middle School was in use 2,740 hours during the 2010-11 season for various sports, including soccer, football, lacrosse, rugby, field hockey and softball tryouts. This compares with

unlit grass fields at Whisman and other elementary schools, which were in use an average of only 1,248 hours in the same period. In fact, the city estimates that putting lights on a synthetic field would bump its use up to 3,200 hours a year, far more than any other scenario. The council also took comfort in another section of the report, which found that injuries are no more likely on artificial rather than grass turf. And the so-called “playability” factor, or being able to use the field year round, even during wet weather, also came up in favor or artificial turf, which does not have to be sidelined for an annual “recovery period” like natural turf. So by adding lights to a playing field of artificial turf, the city can nearly triple the use over an unlit grass field, which means the overall cost of operation is lower for artificial turf. When all factors are considered, the city study found the cost per hour of use slightly favored artificial turf, $22 to $25, but even more important in our view is that artificial turf fields will provide far more playing time for the city’s overworked athletic fields in the future. And this will only increase as lights are installed at more fields. We suspect a lot of young parents will not relish the idea of their children playing on a rubber mat that can get hot in the summer and may bleed rubber crumbs all over their uniforms. But at this time, the city needs to get the most for its money, and artificial turf is clearly the most cost-effective surface for the city’s new fields.

NTOWNSQUARE VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

TCE CAUSES CANCER, OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS, EPA SAYS Posted by Jane, a resident of the North Whisman neighborhood. This is Jane from the article. When I testified at the Academy of Sciences it was as a “stakeholder,” a person to put a face on what it was like to find out that I was over a toxic plume and how it had affected me and my family and how difficult it had been to go through the process. Through the last decade I have attended conferences and meetings and seminars about vapor intrusion and TCE contamination, also testifying at a national conference in Philadelphia, again as a person who was been affected. Usually there are no “personal” stories at these conventions, only scientists and polluters and others who are involved in soil cleanup, water clean-up and vapor intrusion. So my credentials are only as an affected person who

■ MOUNTAIN VIEW VOICE ■ OCTOBER 14, 2011

has learned way more than I ever thought possible about TCE and groundwater contamination and clean-up. To Thom: These are not EPA scare tactics. I would be happy to sit with you 1:1 or with a representative from Region 9 EPA so that you can clear up some of your misconceptions. And if you are concerned about jobs, please realize that the cleaning up of toxic sites and the development of new technology to remediate and clean up and administer these sites creates thousands of jobs. Cleaning up pollution that already exists does not destroy jobs.

STEVE JOBS CALLED MOUNTAIN VIEW HOME AS A CHILD Posted by Observer, a resident of the Old Mountain View neighborhood. I wonder if Steve Jobs still would

have been the creative genius everyone points out he is if, when a child, he was busy surfing the Internet, engaged in social media or viewing unrestricted pornography? The ultimate irony is that Steve Jobs didn’t have an iPod or iPhone or iMac or iBook or iPad

or the Internet growing up to distract him on his path to genius. Posted by Kman, a resident of the Monta Loma neighborhood. Ten years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have no jobs, no hope and no cash.

Edgewood keeps on eating FOOD-TRUCK PICNICS CONTINUE MONTHLY THROUGH THE WINTER By Sheila Himmel

VERONICA WEBER

Shay Dismore holds out an order at the Old Port Lobster Shack Mobile at Edgewood Eats, a weekly gathering of food trucks thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shifted to a monthly schedule for the winter.

n their first trip to Edgewood Eats, Palo Alto residents Lenore and Carl Jones circled the wagons, all 11 of them. This is a good strategy, because the food-truck menus range from duck confit spring rolls (Little Green Cyclo) to barbecued ribs (Armadillo Willyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, BBQ Kalbi) and change every time. The popular Monday-night foodtruck fiesta switched to a monthly schedule in October. Rain or shine, it will happen the first Tuesday of

each month through February, and then return to weekly Tuesdays. Food quality varies a lot, but servers are uncommonly friendly and accommodating. At Tikka Bytes, Carl Jones was asked how spicy he wanted his burrito-like â&#x20AC;&#x153;naanwich.â&#x20AC;? Before he gave his final answer, they gave him a taste of spicy so he could know he wanted regular. The Joneses learned about food trucks from their daughter in Los Angeles, where this whole foodtruck thing is really big. They visited Continued on next page

nestled close together, which is why so many commercial streets now are wall-to-wall restaurants. It’s called “the theory of the cluster.” If you do find yourself in a long line, likely someone will ask if you’ve tried this truck before — and either welcome or offer advice. They bid you to try such mixed marriages as the sushi tacos ($2) and fried cheesecake rolls ($2) at Mo Bowl. The first is pretty spicy,

the second crusted in sugar, both appetizer-size. You’ll have plenty of room for Butterscotch on the Go’s pudding ($4) a textural extravaganza that sane people share. Crescent Park resident Susie Hwang founded Edgewood Eats in September 2010 with the support of Edgewood Plaza owner Sand Hill Properties. Her goals were to repurpose a rundown vacant lot

as a neighborhood gathering place, to demonstrate Edgewood Plaza’s potential for vibrant commerce, to provide gourmet food entrepreneurs a foothold in Palo Alto, and to give busy parents some creative dinner options. Each month, a portion of vendor revenues is donated to organizations such as Second Harvest Food Bank, Doctors Without Borders and Water.org. Food trucks are so popular

NMOVIEREVIEWS

50/50 ---

(Century 16, Century 20) Will Reiser, the writer of this film, is himself a cancer survivor, so however this semi-autobiographical story may end, it at least comes with the guarantee that it knows whereof it speaks. Like his creator, 27-year-old character Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) discovers he’s developed a spinal cancer. He begins as an overly cautious individual, but as his illusions of order crumble, he allows himself to indulge his emotions and cross behavioral boundaries. Gordon-Levitt excels, partly as an amusingly deadpan straight man to Seth Rogen (playing a version of himself as Adam’s best bud) and Anjelica Huston (lovable as Adam’s demonstrative mother), but more importantly as an Everyman navigating his mortality. “50/50” proves winningly humane as a carpe diem comedy designed to remind us, gently, that what matters most is being true to one another and ourselves. Rated R for language throughout, sexual content and some drug use. One hour, 40 minutes. — P.C.

THE IDES OF MARCH ---

(Palo Alto Square, Century 20) “The Ides of March” goes behind the scenes of a Democratic presidential primary race, as seen through the eyes of idealistic, highly placed campaign staffer Stephen Myers (Ryan Gosling). Pennsylvania Gov. Mike Morris (George Clooney) is looking good heading into the Ohio Democratic Primary. As the Republican machinery manuevers to get out the vote for Morris’ less electable rival, Morris’ team parries and thrusts. Rival campaign managers Paul Zara (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Tom Duffy (Paul Giamatti) clearly have read their Machiavelli; the film’s central conflict begins to unfold when Duffy, hoping to poach a keen political mind, makes an overture to Myers. A true believer in his own candidate, Myers declines, but complications ensue when top-tier reporter Ida Horowicz (Marisa Tomei) gets wind of his secret meeting with the other side. Rated R for pervasive language. One hour, 41 minutes. — P.C.

MONEYBALL ---1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) “Moneyball” — based on the 2003 novel by Michael Lewis about Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and his unorthodox approach to fielding a winning team on the cheap — offers a captivating and often humorous look into the business side of America’s pastime. Beane hooks up with young economics whiz Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), an unheralded wunderkind in the value of baseball statistics. Together the duo eschews standard baseball wisdom and begins revamping the team using an analytical/mathematical approach, much to the chagrin of the organization’s more traditionally minded scouting department. Rated PG-13 for some strong language. 2 hours, 6 minutes. — T.H.

REAL STEEL --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) In the nottoo-distant future, the sport du jour is robot boxing. Seems fight-hungry citizens have tired of watching people beat each other up (weak humans) and prefer to see sophisticated and expensive robots pound

8FFLFOE each other into scrap metal. One of the most notable robot-boxing trainers (i.e., the guy who works the remote control) is washed-up fighter Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman). Charlie is down on his luck when he gets word that the mother of his estranged young son (Dakota Goyo) has died, leaving Max without a guardian. Maxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aunt Debra (Hope Davis) and her hubby Marvin (James Redhorn) are eager for custody, but the unscrupulous Charlie sees an opportunity to make a quick buck. Charlie enlists the help of his longtime friend and former lover Bailey (Evangeline Lilly) and plans to hit the robot-boxing circuit with Max in tow. Rated PG-13 for some violence, intense action and brief language. 2 hours, 7 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; T.H.

WHATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S YOUR NUMBER? -1/2

(Century 20) Anna Faris plays Ally Darling (aww...), whose Boston subway ride is ruined when the Marie Claire magazine tells her the average number of lovers an American woman has in her lifetime is 10.5. Aghast at having nearly doubled that total â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and shamed by her younger sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impending marriage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ally resolves to stop sleeping with men until she finds â&#x20AC;&#x153;the one.â&#x20AC;? What follows is a frothy and predictable tale, occasionally annoying but perhaps a crowd pleaser for those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blanche at the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;chick flick.â&#x20AC;? Rated R for sexual content and language. 1 hour, 47 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.
