Council deadlocks on San Antonio housing By Daniel DeBolt

Net neutrality activists occupy Google 10 ARRESTS AS GROUP CAMPS OUT AT CHARLESTON ROAD HEADQUARTERS By Daniel DeBolt

T

ents went up at Google headquarters Tuesday as a group of activists called on the company to take action against proposed FCC rules on Internet neutrality. The group of about 20 set up camp Tuesday afternoon, June

24, at Google headquarters near Charleston Park. Police say Google was supportive of the group’s right to protest and the group was not immediately asked to leave, even though organizer Zaigham Kabir said much of the camp was on Google property. A group of 10 were arrested later in the

evening, after they refused Google’s requests that they leave for the night and return in the morning, police said. They were booked into San Jose main jail. Google, Facebook, Amazon and other companies have See NET NEUTRALITY, page 7

ity Council members found themselves considering a change in course Tuesday after a group of residents called attention to a proposed “precise plan” that they say would exacerbate the city’s housing shortage in the San Antonio shopping center area, driving up rents and increasing commute traffic. “This is a place everyone in town seems to think is a great place for housing, but we’re going to have three times as many jobs as we have housing,” said Lenny Siegel, who spoke at length on behalf of members of the Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View during the study session on the San Antonio precise plan. The plan is a blueprint for future development in the San Antonio shopping center and surrounding area. “We can’t build our way out of the (housing shortage) if we are building all of this office space all over town,” Siegel said, referring to plans for Google, LinkedIn and others to build office space for tens of thousands of new workers, on top of already explosive job growth. At the end of a contentious three-hour meeting that ran until midnight, council members

Schools seek tastier hot lunch fare By Kevin Forestieri

M

ost people don’t have fond memories of school lunches, but the Mountain View Whisman School District is taking steps to change that by revamping menus, improving the quality and bolstering student participation. In a collaborative effort with the school district, Google and Lunch Lessons LLC conducted

INSIDE

an assessment of the district’s Child Nutrition Department. Their findings were grim, spurring the district to launch a comprehensive reform of its school meals program. At a board meeting last month, Ann Cooper of Lunch Lessons explained that average daily participation in the food program had slipped another 2 percent in the 2014 school year, continuing a downward trend. The decrease

was across the board: breakfast, lunch, free and reduced meals, and at both elementary schools and middle schools. Free and reduced lunch participation took the biggest hit, dropping from 80.8 percent to 73.8 percent in one year. In her presentation to the board, Cooper suggested that the Child Nutrition Department revise its menus to reflect a changing demographic, and keep

It has run over budget since at least 2011, with See SCHOOL LUNCH, page 9

appeared to be deadlocked 3-3 on the jobs-housing issue and decided to continue the discussion in a different, more “collegial” venue, as City Manager Dan Rich called it. They set a new meeting for July 8, delaying the council’s annual summer recess. With member John Inks excusing himself because he owns property nearby, council members voted 6-0 to have city staff come back with a report on “the implications of increased housing” and decreased office space in the San Antonio precise plan.

Police arrested a man for allegedly burglarizing a CalMoto BMW dealership last month, which led to two subsequent arrests and recovered stolen property. On May 26 at 1:40 a.m., 35-year-old Medardo Rivas Aguirre of Mountain View and Sunnyvale was arrested during an in-progress burglary at the dealership, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department. A second suspect, 20-yearold William Rivas Aguirre of Santa Clara, was also arrested in a nearby neighborhood in connection to the burglary, he said. An investigation led police to a third suspect, 44-year-old Miguel Paz of Mountain View. Police received a search warrant for Paz’s residence, and arrested Paz and recovered stolen property in his home. Pictures of the recovered stolen property, mostly jewelery and wristwatches, can be found on the Mountain View police Pinterest page. Anyone who recognizes items may contact Det.

BRICK THROWN AT BICYCLIST Police received a report that a man threw a brick at bicyclist riding along Steven’s Creek Trail in Mountain View last week. The victim, a 48-year-old Mountain View man, said he was riding along the trail near Evelyn Avenue at 4:55 p.m. when he was struck in the head by what he believed to be a brick. The suspect could not be located in the area, and the victim was not injured because he was wearing a helmet, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department. The suspect was described as a 5-foot, 7-inch white male with gray wavy hair, wearing a blue shirt and blue pants. —Kevin Forestieri

Children compete at the KLD soccer camp held at Cooper Park.

Soccer camp aims to help at-risk youth HUNDREDS PARTICIPATE IN GRASSROOTS SUMMER CAMP By Kevin Forestieri

W

hile the top soccer teams duke it out in Brazil for the World Cup championship, hundreds of kids at Cooper Park in Mountain View are participating in their own World Cup. On the first day of the Kick, Lead, and Dream (KLD) summer soccer camp, as many as 400 kids from third to eighth grade get together and form teams, each one with its own country and flag to represent them throughout the two-week soccer-filled camp. But the camp goes beyond just World Cup mimicry. KLD

was created by two Mountain View High School students in 2007 in an effort to bring the summer camp experience to underprivileged kids in Mountain View and Sunnyvale. “It’s a fun and positive camp for those who don’t normally have access to summer camps,” said Joe Seither, a parent volunteer for KLD. The goal of the camp, as the name suggests, is to bolster soccer skills, teach leadership qualities and give participants the confidence to dream big, according to the KLD website. With a minimal $10 registration fee and provided transportation to Cooper Park, camp

organizers pull down the typical barriers to summer camp access. Each day camp organizers set up 10 small soccer fields with a paint sprayer and have kids play tournament-style games of soccer from 12:30 to 3:30. In between games, the camp has guest speakers like soccer players from the San Jose Earthquakes and the Stanford men’s soccer team, as well as principals, superintendents and police officers. Their messages to the kids vary, but they encourage them to stay in school and work hard. See SOCCER CAMP, page 8

School auditorium costs go over budget

he City Council moved forward with plans for a large hotel and office development on city property Tuesday evening. Council members voted 4-3 at the June 24 meeting to select Broadreach Capital as the favored developer for the 6.7-acre site at 750 Moffett Blvd. near Highway 101. Proposing a 182-room hotel and 146,000-square-foot office building, both four stories tall, the San Francisco-based company was chosen over three other finalists. Two other firms had prosed to build hotel-only projects on the site, including Marriott hotel “builder of the year” R.D. Olson. A total of 12 proposals were originally received. A council majority said they wanted to “diversify” revenue sources for the city by adding office space into the mix, which is enough to accommodate 700 to 1,000 employees. The developer said there was an effort underway to buy another 3 acres next door, a former freeway interchange owned by Caltrans, so the project could add even more office and hotel space. “I think we can do both,” the developer said. “We don’t need 700 office jobs pouring onto the freeway at that location with no place for the workers to live,” said Lenny Siegel of the Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View. The group voted the night before to oppose office use on the site, he said. “I hear we can’t tell private

owners what to do, but that doesn’t apply in this case. The fact is, we can’t build office after office in Mountain View and not suffer the consequences.” Residents noted hotel use would help relieve pressure on the city’s housing market, as Google has been leasing apartments to use as extended-stay hotels for their visiting employees. Council members admitted that hotels may bring more revenue through higher transient occupancy taxes for the city, but expressed concern that it wouldn’t be stable revenue. “Even if the economy crashed, we have a stable income source,” said council member Ronit Bryant, who said she wanted lease revenues to ensure the city remains “very rich in services to our residents.” She said her “fantasy” was big box retail on the site, but an analysis found office and hotel use would provide the best revenue for the city. Housing was not pursued partly because of the presence of toxic TCE contamination on the site, though either way, the relatively small amount that’s there must be cleaned up, noted council candidate Jim Neal. Council members John Inks, John McAllister and Jac Siegel voted against it. McAllister and Siegel said they favored the hotelonly proposals. Resident Bob Weaver, representing the Slater Neighborhood Association, said the property will be “the face we present to the world as they See MOFFETT, page 9

evelopment costs are through the roof across the Peninsula, and it’s taking a toll on school district plans for new auditoriums at Crittenden and Graham Middle Schools, as well as a new track and soccer field and improvements to the Crittenden Sports Center. The price tag on the new facilities is $55.7 million — than $3 million over-budget, based on a

cost estimate of the schematics. The project will have to be redesigned and scaled back to fit with the budget, according to Terese McNamee, chief business officer at the Mountain View Whisman School District. The development projects in question are phases two and three of the Measure G bond measure, which voters passed in 2012 to repair, upgrade and expand school facilities in the Mountain View Whisman School District. The district reports that the proj-

ect will likely be 7 to 10 percent over budget. At the school board meeting last week, project manager Todd Lee told the board that construction costs on the Peninsula are very high, and Santa Clara County is one of the most volatile counties in the United States in terms of construction and development. Electrical costs in particular are through the roof. Todd said the bids are coming See MEASURE G, page 9

NO SALES TAX June 26th-July 8th

he city’s zoning administrator was set to approve an office developer’s request to use a downtown retail space for a WhatsApp employee break room instead of a cafe, shop or restaurant. The move by developer Roger Burnell for his new building at 902 Villa St. has caused some concern among downtown residents, who say the 932-squarefoot space should be home to a cafe, public meeting space, restaurant or shop. “This is our vibrant downtown?” asked Julie Lovins in an email alerting downtown residents. Lovins has raised the issue with several other retail spaces being used as offices downtown. Zoning administrator Gerry Beaudin was expected to approve the request in a 4 p.m. meeting on Wednesday evening, after the Voice’s press deadline. The space has been vacant since the building was leased by Facebook-owned WhatsApp. While city staff originally pushed for the retail space to be included in the project, they now recommend approval of Burnell’s request to

use the ground floor space as an employee break room. “When Roger Burnell sought community support for this project, including in a neighborhood outreach that I attended, he emphasized public benefits of a corner cafe with patio,” said a letter to Beaudin from downtown resident Max Hauser, who publishes updates on the local restaurant scene for the Old Mountain View Neighborhood Association. “I’m skeptical of any owner claim that no such tenant can be found. Especially as the owner controls the asking terms. What is the point of negotiating public benefits, if the city won’t enforce them? Do city staff wish to approve a resounding precedent of Bait-and-Switch?” Burnell’s project stirred controversy for years as he sought to replace a historic home on the site, provide less than the standard amount of parking, and proposed a building that would tower above Chez TJ, the neighboring gourmet restaurant. “This small retail space will improve the pedestrian friendliness of the building,” wrote a city staff member in a July 2012 City Council report for the project.

Called a “commercial/restaurant space,” the city report adds that “the applicant provided this area at staff’s request.” It also allowed Burnell to have an exemption from providing an additional 46 required parking spaces, according to city documents, though “parking in-lieu fees” must be paid if the space is not occupied by commercial, retail or restaurant use. Critics say increasing office development is slowly eating away at what’s considered to be a key component of a vibrant downtown: ground floor retail space. Meyer Appliance was a fixture for years in a Castro Street building that was taken over by tech company Quixey. The former PayPal building at Bryant and Dana was originally slated to include ground floor retail space. A few blocks south, a small Castro Street strip mall once home to a half dozen small businesses was allowed to be renovated for office space. And across the street from there, a small gym near Starbucks called Custom Fitness was forced out to make way for offices. Email Daniel DeBolt at ddebolt@mv-voice.com

Hospital district hands out $6.3 million in grants COMMUNITY BENEFITS PLAN POURS MONEY INTO LOCAL HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS By Kevin Forestieri

he El Camino Healthcare District is planning to dish out $6.3 million to local organizations to help improve health services for people in the greater community, according to the district’s 2015 Community Benefit Plan. A slight drop from the $6.6 million distributed last year, the grant money will go to school districts, health organizations and clinics in Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Sunnyvale and part of Cupertino. Each year, the district sets aside income from its property tax revues for the Community Benefit Plan. This money is used to provide additional funding to programs, nonprofit organizations and public institutions that can improve access to health care services and make a dent in “persistent unmet health needs in the district,” according to the plan. Though the presentation and a press release from the district say that “more than $6.3 million” will be spent on the plan, the maximum dollar amount spent

cannot exceed $6,321,527. Spending is split up into four categories: healthcare access, mental health, obesity reduction and health literacy. The healthcare access grants include over $200,000 to both Sunnyvale and Mountain View Whisman school districts, a slight increase from last year, which will continue to boost the underfunded school nurse programs at both districts. Before receiving grant money, the Sunnyvale School District only had one nurse to serve roughly 6,500 students — way off the ratio of one nurse per 750 students suggested by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. With the grant money, the district was able to hire two additional, full-time school nurses. “We now have cut that ratio to one in about 2,300 students, which is still a pretty hefty caseload but much improved from the ratio we had previously,” Picard told the board. But the goals in the Community Benefit Plan are far more specific than just “hire more nurses” for the school districts.

The plan cites ongoing problems and a list of suggested ways the grant money can be used to deal with them. For example, the Mountain View Whisman School District continues to have attendance problems related to uncontrolled, chronic illness of students, which in turn affects their education. The grant money, which increased from $195,000 to $214,000 this year, will bring more health services to students with chronic health conditions as well as students with limited access to healthcare. This includes outreach to make sure students who fail health screenings follow-up with a health provider. The Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District will also receive $160,000 in grants this year, which will focus on the mental health needs of high school students. According to the plan, truancy and attendance issues, as well as worsening depression and anxiety, all need to be addressed by the district through mental See GRANTS, page 7

County: Supervisors pass moratorium on marijuana dispensaries The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to enact an immediate moratorium on the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated Santa Clara County, officials said. Deputy County Executive Sylvia Gallegos said the moratorium is needed in light of San Jose’s adoption on June 10 of new controls over marijuana dispensaries, leaving the county a likely place for pot dispensaries or cultivation sites to crop up, Gallegos said. Board President Mike Wasserman said “the immediate moratorium allows us time to create a permanent ordinance, and at the same time fully analyze the impact on medical access to marijuana for compassionate use.” The board plans to conduct further analysis and weigh the impact that a permanent ban would have on compassionate use of marijuana for illnesses against the adverse effects of marijuana access for adults and children. This moratorium will allow the County time to prepare zoning ordinance amendments to be presented to the Board at its meeting on August 5. While there are no marijuana dispensaries or cultivation sites currently licensed by the county, San Jose’s new law permits dispensaries to grow marijuana at a

single site in the city, in the county or a county that borders Santa Clara County, Gallegos said. The immediate passage of the moratorium prevents cannabis dispensaries and growing operations from cropping up within the county over the board’s July recess, Gallegos said. According to Gallegos, marijuana should be available for “those 1 percent to 2 percent of Californians who have a serious illness, such as glaucoma, HIV, or cancer.” Research by the county Department of Alcohol and Drugs Services showed that marijuana has a “unique impact on adolescents and young adults because of its effects on memory and executive functioning,” Gallegos stated. The department, in a report released in April, stated that the younger the user of marijuana, the greater the impact on their brain development and regular use can result in a permanent drop of 6 to 8 IQ points. The county Public Offender office reported finding an association between the growth of unregulated pot dispensaries from a few years ago and a higher percentage of substancerelated suspensions in the East Side Union High School District in San Jose. In the 2011-2012 school term, substance abuse suspensions

increased by 106 percent over the year while suspensions at the district’s schools in general dropped by more than 28 percent. While not all of the drug violations were for marijuana, “it was reported anecdotally that the vast majority of these incidents did, in fact, involve marijuana” and schools reported students were coming onto campuses “with baggies, pill bottles, and, in some cases, medical marijuana from the dispensaries,” according to Gallegos. She said that beyond the temporary moratorium, the county’s administration has recommended that supervisors prohibit marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated areas. Since 2009, six marijuana dispensaries opened in unincorporated county lands without land use approvals. Five closed within a month after being contacted by the sheriff’s office and county code enforcers, while one dispensary was annexed to San Jose, according to Gallegos. Deputy District Attorney Patrick Vanier, in a report, said federal and county investigators have discovered “multiple cartel drug trafficking cells operating within the county” and cartel members who were arrested have revealed, “how marijuana cultivation is a significant component to their overall business.” —Bay City News Service

cies, RotaCare and school nurses are concerned about this issue.” Avery used comments from the Community Health Awareness Council (CHAC) to describe how middle and high school students grapple with mental health issues and anxiety, which can lead to poor school performance, self-mutilation and thoughts of suicide. The culprit? Avery described a slough of problems including domestic violence, bullying, cyber-bullying, and even gangs and homelessness. “What our partners are telling

us is that the prevalence of gangs and homelessness is a lot more pronounced than perhaps I think we knew,” Avery said. On top of grant money to two CHAC programs, this year’s plan adds a new grant recipient — Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence. The program, which offers a shelter for battered women and their children and provides support groups for intervention and education, will get $50,000 in grants in the coming year.

health and behavioral support programs.

NCOMMUNITYBRIEFS

The Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition will hold four free, hourlong summer bike-safety training classes at The Village in San Antonio Center. The classes, part of the Bay Area BikeShare bike-sharing program, will take place on July 1, July 17 and July 29. The training classes, in an unoccupied retail space within The Village, come a year before The Village is set to incorporate

a new BikeShare station, according to Merlone Geir Partners developer Liz Munger. Locked BikeShare stations offer bikes for short-term rental. Coalition officials said they hope the classes will both promote biking as a means of transportation and ensure that bikers employ safe strategies on the roads. “We’re having these free classes in Mountain View and other communities

because as more and more people choose the bicycle for everyday transportation, it’s important that they have the skills to keep themselves and other users of the road safe,” said coalition executive director Corinne Winter. Class space is limited. To register, contact Safe Routes to School coordinator Ashley Hernandez at ashley@bikesiliconvalley.org. —Cooper Aspegren

Net neutrality supporters Zaigham Kabir, left, and Russell Jelter, take to social media to publicize their cause at Google’s headquarters on June 24.

joined activists in opposing proposed new Federal Communication Commission rules allowing Internet Service Providers to create a tiered Internet, saying in a letter that the proposals “represent a grave threat to the Internet.” The Occupy Google group is concerned that the proposed rules would lead to online censorship, new fees and discrimination against users by ISPs. Organizers wants Google to step up the pressure. “We’re not here to protest Google,” Kabir said. “Some in the group have concerns with surveillance technology,” he said, alluding to Google Glass, “but that’s not why we’re here. We’re here to get Google to take action for net neutrality.” The group points to Google’s action in 2012 against the Stop Online Piracy Act, when the company blocked out its own logo at google.com and posted a link to an online petition which garnered 7 million signatures. It was a key move in the battle that the group would like to see happen again, Kabir said. Of particular concern to the group are new rules that have been proposed by the FCC that could allow Internet Service Providers to create a playing field on the Internet where companies who can afford to pay for faster Internet service have an advantage. ISPs have been lobbying hard for such a plan. The group’s stated goal, according to occupygoogle. com, is “to maintain the Internet as a network that allows all users equal access to speak and be heard. It is through this that the Internet has supported marginalized groups, provided a communications platform for political movements, and fostered innovations in tech-

nology and services.” The group is also particularly concerned with a court decision in January. FCC rules adopted last year that prohibited blocking or slowing down websites were struck down by the United States Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia. “Ever since that court ruling in January, all these ISPs can block websites, they can discriminate against websites, charge access fees, it’s basically a form of censorship,” said Kabir, echoing concerns reportedly raised by Columbia University professor Tom Wu, who coined the term “net neutrality.” “We feel this is an attack on free speech itself,” Kabir said. Comedian John Oliver brought the issue to the attention of millions on earlier this month with a biting rant on the topic of net neutrality that went viral and reportedly helped spur over 300,000 emails to the FCC on net neutrality. “Yes, the guy who used to run the cable industry’s lobbying arm is now head of the agency tasked with regulating it,” Oliver said of Tom Wheeler, President Barack Obama’s appointee to head the FCC. “That is the equivalent of needing a babysitter and hiring a dingo.” Kabir said members of the group were linked to the Occupy Wall Street movement and several Internet freedom efforts. “We want an open and free Internet. We call on Google to stand with us as we do that,” Kabir said. More information, including details about a July 10 online day of protest, are at occupygoogle.org.

-PDBM/FXT SAN ANTONIO Continued from page 1

Antonio precise plan would allow 879,000 square feet of office space in the San Antonio shopping center and surrounding blocks, which could accommodate 4,395 to 5,860 jobs, calculated at 150 to 200 square feet per employee. Meanwhile, the plan would allow the construction of 1,575 homes. This is especially concerning to housing advocates because, according to 2012 general plan documents, most new housing in the city built by 2030 is expected to go in the San Antonio area or on El Camino Real. Siegel’s group has called attention to the city’s plans to add office space all over town for tens of thousands of jobs, but has zoned city-wide for fewer than 8,000 homes by 2030. “There aren’t that many other places in town where we’ll get a substantial amounts of housing, even if I get my way, and the people I work with get their way, and we get housing in North Bayshore, that’s not going to be enough,” Siegel said of the group’s call for more than 5,000 homes north of Highway 101. Council members voted against a proposal for 1,100 homes there in 2012. Council members were unusually derisive of resident’s comments Tuesday, with Vice Mayor John McAlister saying the growing awareness about the city’s

SOCCER CAMP Continued from page 5

KLD has a kind of peculiar grassroots setup. Seither, one of five parent volunteers, said in a way the camp doesn’t exist. “There’s no formal nonprofit called ‘KLD Soccer.’ Tt doesn’t exist as its own entity,” Seither said. Instead, the camp is run by a handful of parents responsible for funding the program, which needs about $25,000 to be self-sufficient. They’re also responsible for marketing and outreach to school campuses across both cities, as well as working with school resource officers and administrators. It’s a lot to ask for from parent volunteers, but they have help. The Los Altos and Mountain View Police Departments, along with the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District and Sunnyvale Police Activities League, all donate time and resources to help put on the camp each year. Bus transportation for camp members is one of the biggest 8

jobs housing ratio was simply the “hot topic” of the month. Council members noted previous opposition to housing proposed for the California Street Safeway site, and before the recession, to a large 450-unit housing project nearby at the former Mayfield Mall, now leased by Google for office space. “Now all of a sudden they want housing,” said Council Member Chris Clark. “We can’t let changing preferences (stop us). We have to move forward.” “I question if we would have this much angst, if it were not for the gun that has been put to our heads,” said council member Mike Kasperzak, referring to the “elephant in the room” — the referendum promised by the Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View. Its focus is against Merlone Geier’s phase two redevelopment of San Antonio shopping center, which includes nearly 400,000 square feet of office space and a hotel but no housing on a large site now home to Ross, BevMo and several smaller buildings. The group says it will gather the signatures to put the project up for a city-wide vote if the council approves it July 1, before the precise plan is done in December. Council members noted that no one could have predicted the city’s explosive job growth within existing office buildings, and added that working on three major precise plans, one for El Camino Real and another for North Bayshore, was a lot of work.

“I haven’t seen us have this much self-doubt,” Kasperzak said. Affordable housing Council member Ronit Bryant led the council in the new direction. She had opposed making housing a priority during a February study session. Council members Kasperzak and Clark joined her in expressing interest in more housing for the San Antonio area. “I said I didn’t want to have lot of housing because it’s a regional shopping center,” Bryant said of the February meeting. “The question is, could we encourage people to build homes in some kind of direction towards affordability?” She said that the public benefits to be required of developers who want to build big in the area, as proposed, would give priority to transportation improvements, not subsidizing affordable housing. “I’m not sure that’s the right way to do it,” she said. “We want a priority for housing because that’s what the community needs,” Lenny Siegel said, adding that the group wanted to “put the housing proposals at the front of the line.” Bryant said she wants to see an economic study of whether housing would be compatible with shopping center development. Santana Row has often been cited as model for the San Antonio area, but council member Margaret Abe-Koga expressed concern

that there really weren’t many places to shop there, while former mayor Matt Pear said a pair of big box stores would bring $2 million in annual sales tax revenue to the city. Resident Patrick Moore said retail type shouldn’t stop housing —stores like Target exist in some places with housing above them. Several residents spoke of themselves and others being displaced by rising rents, including a college professor who said she is planning to move somewhere more affordable as soon as her son is finished with school. Another spoke through a translator, saying it was having an effect on many children in the community, including her own. One resident expressed concern that his Saint Francis High School-educated kids and their friends will all have to move away from their parents to the East Bay or the Central Valley. “This is the biggest problem we have in the Bay Area,” he said. “This is your biggest responsibility — to figure out how to keep housing affordable for people who live here. Every decision you make, take that into account.” New school is needed Council members have so far resisted requests to find a place for an elementary school in the San Antonio area, which is part of the Los Altos School District. Lenny Siegel stressed that the area be a “family-friendly” neighborhood for the 600 children he says are expected to live there.

budget expenses for the camp, and Seither said MVLA Superintendent Barry Groves was able to help camp organizers quite a bit by providing use of district buses for a nominal fee. Seither said Sunnyvale PAL was also instrumental this year to get things up and running. If you head out to Cooper Park during the camp hours, you won’t see adults and parent volunteers leading the hundreds of kids through their soccer games. That’s because each year around 75 to 85 high school students from Mountain View, Sunnyvale and the greater community volunteer to be camp counselors and coaches for the kids. Seither said many of these high school students were once camp members themselves, and volunteer their time to give back to the community.

“A school is the core of a family friendly neighborhood,” Siegel said. “We’re concerned that we’ll build out the area and there won’t be room for a school.” One resident, a software engineer, noted that younger tech workers will soon want to have kids and will want places to live near their jobs. Siegel called on the city to study the impact on commute length for various office-heavy development scenarios, or “vehicle miles traveled.” Council members say office development brings fewer car trips than housing, but Siegel says that misses the point, when a lack of housing pushes people to live in far off places like Manteca, causing more freeway traffic. “Any LEED gold, LEED platinum building has minuscule savings in greenhouse gases compared to the enormous amounts released by commuting throughout the Bay Area,” Siegel said. After the meeting, Siegel said he wanted the council to not rush to make major decisions on the precise plan before three members term out at the end of the year. “The November election may elect new council members who wish to more aggressively address the jobs-housing imbalance, and it would be a mistake for the lame duck council to make fundamental, lasting decisions in the face of the election results,” Siegel said in an email.

Officer Marco Garcia of the Mountain View Police Department said he’s worked with the program since its inception. He was the at-risk youth counselor at Graham Middle School at the time, and helped train student volunteer coaches for the camp. Garcia said soccer is a simple vehicle to reach out to kids, and that the support from the parents has been amazing. He said the camp gives kids to opportunity to be in a quality summer camp that would normally cost anywhere from $500 to $1,000 for only $10, giving more kids access. Garcia said the camp focuses on kids who are showing atrisk behaviors, like academic trouble, behavioral issues, families with a gang history, broken homes or absent parents. “It’s amazing seeing kids from all walks of life at the camp,” Garcia said. “All the different cultures and languages are there.” E-mail Kevin Forestieri at kforestieri@mv-voice.com

in about 45 percent higher for electrical work on the facilities. “There are no electricians in any of the union halls in any of the 13 Bay Area counties right now,” Lee told the board. “We’re importing them from out of state.” Lee said there is no justification for the exploding costs other than market conditions, but they cannot ignore it going forward with the Measure G budget. When asked about overall construction prices in Mountain View, Lee said it was up almost 7 percent last year, and will likely hit double digit numbers for 2014.

expenses exceeding revenues by as much as $144,000. Cooper said the department also did not have clear goals, needs to optimize central food production and lacks both dining space and walk-in refrigerator capacity. Timing is on their side if district officials want to make changes and improvements right away. A 20-year contract with Sodexo, a food service management company, expires June 30. This means the district has the opportunity to start fresh with a new company. Which apparently is a good thing — Cooper mentioned that the relationship between Sodexo and the school district hasn’t always been smooth. The district has already issued a request for proposals in search of a new food service management company, and will make recommendations to the board at a special meeting on June 27.

Make it 100 percent hotel.” He noted the longtime desire in the community for more event and conference space, and Broadreach has proposed less of such space than other bidders, about 3,000 to 5,000 square feet of it. The two hotelonly finalists proposed 10,000 square feet of event space. “Here we are a world-class city all dressed up and no place to go,” Weaver said. “People in the neighborhood don’t feel office

Don’t let aging uproot you.

The architects for the projects looked at the over-budget schematic a week prior to the board meeting and were able to make adjustments to square footage, building materials and “scope” adjustments to meet budget goals. Project costs at Crittenden are almost back on track, but Graham still needs changes. Not all the changes were slight modifications. The Crittenden auditorium lobby, a covered, outdoor building, was pared back. The 1,870-square foot lobby will stay roughly the same size, but the full roof was changed into more of a patio roof with some trellis around it in order to cut costs. The changes to the auditorium lobby alone brought down

the cost of the project by over $600,000, which, when combined with the other changes, has put Crittenden plans back in line with the budget. But confidence is still a little shaky. McNamee said even with adjustments to the scope and the design, she is still concerned about electrical bid prices pushing the project over budget again. The third phase of Measure G will be approved in Spring of 2015, and will be constructed during 2015-16. The district is looking at PG&E settlement funds, energy grants and developer fees to offset remaining budget deficits. E-mail Kevin Forestieri at kforestieri@mv-voice.com

mendations made by Google and Lunch Lessons, the board also approved creating a new position — director of child nutrition. Board trustee Chris Chiang said the district can look to Bay Area companies like Revolution Foods for inspiration and ideas for high quality meals and menu items as the Child Nutrition Department makes changes over the coming school year. He said the meals include fresh produce and meat, including fish, that can give the district an idea of how high the bar can be set. “A lot of people do not think school meals are great, or that they’re destined to be unhealthy and bland,” Chiang said. “But if you look and see what progress has been made, it’s really not that way. Meals have changed.” The district is unlikely to set up an actual, direct relationship with a company like Revolution Foods, though. Revolution Foods produces meals off-site and sends them into schools, which Cooper said would fail to

take advantage of all the on-site food production capabilities of the district. The recommendations did, however, suggest potential relationships between the Child Nutrition Department and Google, the Palo Alto Medical Foundation and the Living Classrooms program. Ann Cooper and Beth Collins of Lunch Lessons contacted Vicki Moore, executive director of Living Classrooms, to discuss a possible partnership. Moore said they believed the Living Classrooms program, which does lessons on growing, harvesting and eating fresh fruits and vegetables at the schools, would be a natural partner with the Child Nutrition Department. Moore said there are no current plans to expand Living Classrooms’ role at the district level for food services. She said the district always has the option to expand its program from kindergarten through third grade all the way to eighth grade.

space fits.” The developer had big promises for the site, including an environmentally friendly LEED silver building, bike sharing, shuttles, “attractive” open spaces, substantial revenue for the city, a pedestrian bridge over Stevens Creek to connect the creek’s trail to the site and “first-class architecture” and “first class office space.” “We hope we can beat your deadline by several quarters,” a representative said. City staff touted the Broadreach’s considerable financial resources as a reason for choosing the firm. The company boasts $24 billion in assets. The council will consider designs for the site at later date, along with the issue of whether

to require a labor peace agreement for the hotel in the project, which will ensure that unions can organize workers at the hotel without interference. Such an agreement would also mean less projected lease revenue, city staff members said. “Workers are scared of losing their jobs if they fight for their rights,” said Vanessa Anchando, member of Local 13 of Unite HERE, whose members spoke about the need for decent wages in the area. “I hope this project can move forward with labor peace in place so the project can move forward without labor unrest and give workers like me a voice.”

Teaching students how to cope with a shooter

S

adly, due to a rash of school shootings from Seattle to New York, prudent school officials, including our own in Mountain View Whisman, must devote valuable school and teacher focus to teaching students how to protect themselves from a berserk person with a gun. It is a lesson plan that, despite its obvious necessity, most school officials must wish they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do. Nevertheless, in a recent presentation to the school board, Kathi Lilga, executive assistant to the superintendent, explained a plan titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Run Hide Defendâ&#x20AC;? that details the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new strategy to protect students ages 5 to 14, if a school site is threatened by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;shooter.â&#x20AC;? From the start, schools are working at a disadvantage due to their open structure and lack of bulletproof glass or other defensive materials. School offices are usually open, as are classrooms, although doors can quickly be locked and students arrayed in a way designed to protect them if the worst happens. Of course, the first line of defense is for a shooter to be apprehended by law enforcement personnel before he or she can get loose and threaten defenseless persons, including teachers and school children. But recent incidents have shown that when wielding a gun, such persons can be well on their way to schools or other public places without tipping police about their plans. Police often arrive after the deed has been done, as happened at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. In explaining Mountain View Whismanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Run Hide Defend,â&#x20AC;? Lilga told the board that traditional measures like a classroom lockdown and students sheltering in place was probably not the best policy at Sandy Hook, since 20 students and six staff members were killed by the shooter. Instead, Lilga said the first option

at district schools will be to assess the situation and decide whether it is safe to evacuate. If the coast is clear and there is time, the plan says students should run as fast as possible away from the shooter to find shelter, whether in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard or a nearby building to get out of harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. If it is too late to evacuate, the plan advises that lockdown is the best option. Doors should be locked and barricaded, lights turned off, and students duck behind a secondary barricade. And if they are leaning against a wall, students should wedge textbooks behind their heads for added protection from a stray bullet. In the worst case, if a shooter enters the room, students will be told to â&#x20AC;&#x153;believe that they should surviveâ&#x20AC;? and defend themselves, possibly by using a fire extinguisher aimed at the intruder, or throwing books or other objects in self-defense. Younger students are more likely candidates to simply try and run away, while seventh or eighth graders could mount a defense by throwing objects like books at the intruder. The image of young students defending themselves by throwing books at an armed shooter intent on creating as much harm as possible is more than disturbing. But it is a fact of life in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wide open market for guns where there is little prospect of better background checks to weed out buyers who suffer from mental illness. The district is taking the only responsible course which was approved unanimously by the board a few weeks ago â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to train teachers, students and staff in techniques that could save lives if the worst ever happens here. We certainly hope it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but it is better to be prepared if it ever does. V

WHATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NOT TO LIKE ABOUT THE VILLAGE? I have lived in Mountain View for many years and am disappointed in the rally to kill the next part of the Village at San Antonio. Mr Siegelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rabid desire to stop progress fails to include many critical facts. I have watched the development from plans to reality on the first part of the Village. The green technology used should and probably will get awards for environmental consideration and use of materials. The Hetch Hetchy right-of-way is now a beautiful array of dynamic, lowwater plantings that enhance the multi-use park and gathering areas. That said, the public has had a say in all refinements and the developers have been very flexible in heeding the public desires. The second part of the Village happens to include the Milk Pail, a venerable Mountain View institution. Negotiations continue on that issue which I hope has not caused such negativity as to poison the entire concept.

It is a separate issue. Mr Siegel may try to focus the entire referendum on that and it would be wrong to do so. Mountain View is a progressive community in a very progressive Silicon Valley. The Village has captured a new feel of elegance, compact and efficient shopping and dining with adequate parking that does not shout â&#x20AC;&#x153;parking lot.â&#x20AC;? Remember the acres of asphalt around Sears? Regarding housing, there are multiple residential and office buildings under construction along El Camino and all over town right now. To suggest that the second part of the Village be dedicated to housing is unrealistic! The Village designed over 300 successful apartments into the first half of the project. Mission accomplished on that score. Easy access to rail transportation is a big plus as is the Village itself which will truly be a village with everything one could need in one spot. The sales tax and other revenues that the businesses provide should not be overlooked. It will be significant

monies to the City. The easy access will shrink the distance to other cities on the Peninsula whose residents can drop into a state-of-the-art theater, specialty restaurants, conference center, business-class hotel and many other features. Dinner and a movie at reasonable prices sure sounds attractive to me. Santana Row has been wildly successful. The Village is even more diverse

and easier to access. Parking is in multiple areas at the Village, not in a concrete structure across the street. I am not crazy about changes in my life just like most other people. However, when it comes to inevitable change we should make the most of it and the Village has done so. Susan Hamilton Escuela Avenue

ndo Restaurant & Lounge has three things many Palo Alto diners covet in a restaurant. The first is ample outdoor seating. Diners would be remiss not to eat in the beautiful covered patio, with plants along the edges, strings of lights overhead and even a babbling waterfall. It feels totally isolated from the harsh noise of El Camino Real, onto which the patio faces. The second is that it has a full liquor license, which means happy hour is six days a week and specialty cocktails like a passion fruit caipirinha — the national cocktail of Brazil — made with pitu cachaca rum, passion fruit syrup, fresh lime and a chili salt rim. The third is that there is no mention of “farm to table” or artisan anything, no overpriced hamburgers or any of the other food

8FFLFOE trends currently invading the local dining landscape that many Palo Altans decry. Indo isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t old Palo Alto, but it certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t new Palo Alto. Hidden in plain sight in a massive space at El Camino and Lambert Avenue, Indo is a reincarnation of longtime Palo Alto restaurant Straits Cafe, which closed in 2012. Bryan Lew â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who had worked with Straits owner Chris Yeo for 14 years, since the restaurant groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early beginnings in San Francisco â&#x20AC;&#x201D; bought the space with partner Tommy Charoen after Yeo sold. The idea to switch ownership came from Diana Anwar, Indoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indonesian chef de cuisine whom Lew credited with creating much of the original Straits menu. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her cooking that fuels it all,â&#x20AC;? he said. Indo officially reopened in late 2012 and has continued to improve and grow, Lew said. Last winter, the restaurant expanded the bar; over the July 4th weekend, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing some interior improvements â&#x20AC;&#x153;to gear more towards that lounge feel,â&#x20AC;? Lew said. The menu is broad enough to offer something for everyone without being overwhelming. On a recent warm summer evening, we started with a sampler

of four starters ($12): chicken satay, samosa, tuna tartar and poh pia, a fresh spring roll with shrimp, fried egg, hoisin sauce and peanuts that common in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. The satay was a good staple; the samosa, deliciously flavorful and warm; the poh pia a refreshing snack; but the tuna tartar was disappointingly not fresh. The tartar came in dollops with red pickled ginger, tobiko (fish roe), shrimp crackers and Chinese mustard on a thick slice of cucumber. I would not order it again.

But entrees shined with what seems to be the theme at Indo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; high quality without being overdone. The seafood green curry ($24) was a standout, packed with shrimp, mussels, calamari, salmon, eggplant, bok choy and carrot slices. The curry was full of spice without overwhelming the fish. Make sure to order a side of rice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; jasmine, coconut or organic brown â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to soak up the sauce. My only complaint would be the serving size.

able for sharing between more than two people, and even that could be a stretch if both diners are hungry. The balado short rib ($22) — prime beef cooked in sambal and served with potato medallions — was buttery and perfectly cooked, though the promised pea shoots were nowhere to be found. Sambal is made from chili peppers and other ingredients; the balado sambal adds shallots, tomato, lime, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass. The potato medallions were crispy and crunchy, the perfect pairing for a bite of the soft meat. The bihun goreng ($17), a classic Indonesian noodle dish, was tasty but not out of this world. The wok-fired vermicelli noodles are cooked with crab,

vegetables and sambal paste. The lobster pad Thai sounds delectable, but will take a bite out of your wallet at $39. I washed my grub down with a cilantro-jalapeño margarita, which was a little sweet for my liking but anyone who likes a spicy drink will enjoy the jalapeño kick. Our very accommodating waitress (and bartender) made my fellow diner happy by satisfying his request for a jalapeño Gibson (the classic gin martini served with pickled onion). It was strong and to our liking. For non-boozers, the iced vanilla Thai tea is an excellent option.

Dessert were satisfying, though what was advertised as coconut creme brulee ($8) tasted just like regular creme brulee. The pisang — banana fritters, a traditional Indonesian snack — got a bit soft while drowning in vanilla ice cream, but who’s to complain about anything fried drowning in ice cream? And to my joy, Indo serves ice cream by the scoop from local Tin Pot Creamery (they had ginger and Earl Grey on a recent evening). Everything was served promptly despite the fact that on a Tuesday evening the place was extremely well-patronized, with

COURTESY MARIA MARIN/SONY PICTURES CLASSICS

James Franco and Olivia Wilde in “Third Person.”

Third Person

--

(Palo Alto Square) Oscar-winning screenwriter Paul Haggis (“Crash”) raises navel-gazing to an art form with “Third Person,” a “Crash”-y, borderline trashy entry in the genre of global interlocking stories. Those who scoffed at “Crash” will have even more to sniff at here, and the Best Picture’s defenders may think twice after slogging through the 137 minutes of “Third Person.” Haggis also directs and produces. Holding the film’s center is Liam Neeson, as Pulitzer-winning fiction writer Michael. Having recently split with his wife Elaine (Kim Basinger), Michael carries on with journalist and aspiring author Anna (Olivia Wilde) in his Parisian hotel suite, even as he struggles with exploiting the lives of his loved ones (and himself) as fodder for his art. The film is at its best, and most comfortable, in this milieu, with its most obvious Haggis surrogate in Michael. Meanwhile, in Rome, sarcastic small-time businessman Scott (Adrien Brody) plays

NMOVIEREVIEWS

JERSEY BOYS --1/2

“Jersey Boys” has never been high art. The jukebox musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons ran on hit songs and ample corny shtick in nominally telling the act’s story. Now, it’s all been folded into a Clint Eastwood film that’s neither theatrical

the part of ugly American, seeking comfort food at the “Cafe Americano.” There he befriends — or becomes the mark for — a beautiful Roma woman named Monika (Moran Atias), who eventually spills that she’s desperate for cash to ransom her 8-year-old daughter from traffickers. In the New York story, former soap actress Julia (Kunis) nears the end of her rope as she takes her last shot at resolving a child custody case hinging on an allegation of child abuse. The father of her 6-year-old child, ex-husband and aspiring artist Rick (James Franco) won’t give an inch to Julia or her sympathetic lawyer Theresa (Maria Bello). Did I mention that Scott and Michael also have (or had?) young children? The stories all rhyme in circumstances and themes, in ways that will drive some viewers up the wall. To a one, these are damaged people tying to overcome their own deep-seated flaws and break down the defenses of those they want to love. At times, Haggis’s stylistic choices feel cliched, from the faux-Philip Glass of fish nor cinematic foul. John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony-winning role as Valli, the boy with the golden whiny falsetto and the friends who are “bad influences.” Local tough guy Tommy DeVito (Vincent Piazza) first ropes the 16-year-old into a crime and then into performing with his band. When Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen) comes along with a head for musicianship and business, the act reaches a new level. Soon, the Four Seasons — rounded out by Nick Massi (Michael Lomenda) — are a sensation. The film, scripted by the playwrights, Marshall Brickman (“Annie Hall”) and Rick

the opening montage to the slomo and Euro-accordion that introduce Monika. But it’s also possible it’s all part of Haggis’s game in a film that immediately begs the question “All right, what is he playing at?” The puzzle-piece structure eventually makes a picture, or at least reveals the gimmick. Figuratively and literally, “Third Person” is as much about the writer’s process as anything else (Haggis self-deprecatingly winks at the audience when Michael’s agent opines “Now you have random characters making various excuses for your life”). But the tasteful austerity of style and solid performances can’t overcome a script that stands between emotional humanity and the viewer. The sense of intellectual remove can be conceptually interesting, but it makes for a very long, often frustrating journey to a destination not a fraction as appealing as New York, Paris or Rome. Rated R for language and some sexuality/nudity. Two hours, 17 minutes. — Peter Canavese Elice, alternates between musical numbers such as “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” and drama that compactly explains the band’s origins, challenges and resolution. The film is least interesting when it feels like an impressionist’s act complete with put-on mook accents and more interesting when it captures the dynamics of a group with strong egos and competing concerns. The “group argument” scenes — one refereed by Joe Pesci (played by Joey Russo), who grew up with the Four Seasons guys, and the other by mobster “Gyp” DeCarlo (Christopher Walken) — offer the clearest

Lovers of “Jersey Boys” and its music will no doubt appreciate the film, which benefits especially from the practiced performances of Young, Bergen and Lomenda, all veterans of the stage play. It’s unclear whether the corny gloss of the play would have worked any better than Clint’s lower-key grasp at realism (probably not), but there’s a release when Eastwood stages a full-cast curtain call under the closing titles. No movie can’t be improved by Christopher Walken doing a shuffle. Rated R for language throughout. Two hours, 14 minutes. — P.C.
