Sam Feldman got healthier this year, working with the internationally recognized pediatric weight loss program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. By taking the best science about weight loss in children and making it work with real-world families, we help kids change the way they look, feel and think. As Sam’s weight and body mass index declined, his self-confidence skyrocketed. And the number he’s most proud of isn’t on the scale: it’s the seven-minute mile he ran in gym – half his previous time. With healthy habits and everyday strategies, Sam is on the right track for life.

2010: A year of crises, cutbacks, crime and caring Well-being of young persons topped a troubling list of issues, but hope grew by year’s end by Gennady Sheyner, Chris Kenrick, Sue Dremann and Jocelyn Dong

Most Stunning Tragedy: plane crash, power outage On a densely foggy morning Feb. 17, a twin-engine Cessna 310R took off from the Palo Alto Airport and slammed into an electrical tower in the baylands, instantly cutting off power to nearly all of Palo Alto and crashing into an East Palo Alto neighborhood. The plane ripped into two homes on Beech Street in a residential East Palo Alto neighborhood, skidded down the street in a ball of flames and exploded. All three people on board were killed, but miraculously no one on the ground was injured. In its wake, the crash changed many lives and raised questions that are still ongoing. The cause is still under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board. A final report is expected by the end of this month or in early 2011, according to a board spokesman. Detailed memories of the tragedy linger, and not just in the minds of those most greatly impacted, such as Lisa Jones, whose Eppie’s Day Care was struck by the plane. Tesla Motors of Palo Alto mourned the deaths of three employees: pilot Douglas Bourn and passengers Brian Finn and Andrew Ingram. Audio recordings made prior to takeoff captured an air-traffic controller twice telling Bourn there was no visibility on the runway due to the fog and that he was not cleared for takeoff but would be flying at his own risk. A recording from the East Palo Alto Police Department’s Shot Spotter gunshot-detection system told what happened next: It captured the impact and sounds of residents screaming in the street. “There was fire everywhere,” eyewitness Benita Brown said at the time. The accident caused a major power outage from Menlo Park to Mountain View and took out the three powerlines that supply Palo Alto. City officials activated the city’s Emergency Operations Center, while city businesses were brought to a halt. Hundreds of workers relocated to Menlo Park and Mountain View restaurants for food or Internet access. The disaster ignited smoldering resentment regarding the Palo Alto Airport among East Palo Altans and Palo Altans alike. Palo Altans debated the hazards and merits of having the airport so close to a heavily populated area.

or Palo Alto, 2010 was a year to retrench. Silicon Valley’s economic engine continued sputtering, and the City of Palo Alto faced a looming $7.3 million budget deficit with difficult choices to make as to which city services to cut back — or eliminate altogether. A shaken community started 2010 in the grip of a cluster of suicides among its young people. Anxious parents, teachers and community members scrambled to stem what they feared would be a continuing tragedy. But hope seeped into the year as city and school officials and community members responded to the crises. The City Council adopted a severely curtailed budget mid-year that council members praised for its longterm fiscal responsibility. Residents, nonprofits and faith groups worked diligently to improve life in the community, kicking off 2010 with the re-planting of trees on California Avenue, holding emergency-preparedness events to ready neighborhoods for The Big One and consistently advocating for programs and activities that would boost the well-being of young persons. The trendiest of businesses relocated to Palo Alto or expanded their local profiles, including Tesla, Groupon, Skype, BlingNation, HP and, of course, Facebook. The city’s two public high schools each got new principals, who endeavored to set a fresh tone for their students in the fall. And the city’s efforts to overhaul its aging library system launched smoothly with the renovations of the Downtown Branch and Mitchell Park Library and Community Center and the re-opening of a refurbished College Terrace Library. Entering 2011, Palo Alto faces ongoing challenges, including a recent wave of armed robberies and burglaries and a city staff that is trying to accomplish more with fewer workers. To capture the tenor of 2010, the Weekly has selected a range of top news events of the year. Though 2010 had many highlights, the Weekly sought to identify those with the greatest impact on Palo Alto or that were most illustrative of life this past year. Readers are invited to share their own take on the top news of 2010 on Town Square, the online discussion forum, on www.PaloAltoOnline.com. Here, then, is the Weekly’s Top 10 of 2010.

In mid-February, a small plane crashed in East Palo Alto soon after takeoff from the Palo Alto Airport, killing all three aboard and knocking out power to Palo Alto. The wing of the plane came to rest at a day-care home in East Palo Alto (pictured), where the debris included the wires from the electric transmission lines that supply Palo Alto. Miraculously, no one on the ground was injured. East Palo Altans complained — and still complain — about planes that habitually roar over their community during takeoffs. If there has been a silver lining, the accident prompted city officials to explore ways to add an alternate electrical supply line from the west, to lessen the city’s vulnerability to future power failures. It has yet to come to fruition, however. The fate of Palo Alto Airport remains up in the air, although the Palo Alto City Council agreed Dec. 6 the city should take control of the airport from Santa Clara County even before the county’s lease expires in 2017. The city will contribute $300,000 into a new Airport Enterprise Fund to pay for legal fees and consultants for the transition. Still unclear is whether the city will operate the airport on its own or hire a third party. City administrators have said they will make a recommendation by the middle of 2011, following additional studies. The Beech Street neighborhood is largely repaired, although residents report lingering fears as a result of the crash. Eppie’s Day Care is still boarded up.

Least Surprising Turn of Events: high-speed rail It took less than two years for California’s proposed high-speed rail project to morph, in the Palo Alto City Council’s mind, from a badly needed cure for the state’s traffic woes to a $45 billion “boondoggle” that will reduce property values and divide the community with walls or

aerial highways. The discussion, which dominated council meetings throughout the year, took on a note of urgency in the fall, when Councilman Larry Klein described the city’s relationship with the California High-Speed Rail Authority as a “bare-knuckles political fight” and a “David-and-Goliath struggle.” Just two years earlier Klein had joined the rest of the council in passing a resolution in support of the rail project when it was up for a statewide vote on a $9.95 billion down payment. The city’s request for underground train tunnels appeared to be going nowhere fast and auditors from various state agencies were raising red flags about the authority’s revenue plans and ridership projections. In September, the frustrated council passed a resolution of “no confidence” in the voter-approved project and called for state and federal officials to cut off funding. Few were surprised when the council decided later that month to join its neighbors in Atherton and Menlo Park in filing a lawsuit against the authority, challenging its study of the project’s environmental impact. By the end of the year, the city’s high-speed rail activities slowed down as the Federal Railroad Administration and the rail authority decided to begin the project in the Central Valley — all but ensuring that it will be years before Peninsula residents get the 120-mph trains. Rod Diridon, who sits on the authority’s board of directors, attributed this decision to Peninsula’s opposition to the project and Central Valley’s cooperation. Da-

vid may not have defeated Goliath, but he at least bought some time.

Priority of the Year: student ‘connectedness’ How resilient are the youth of Palo Alto? Following five devastating student suicides over a nine-month period ending in January, school and community leaders spent much of 2010 searching for ways to bolster the emotional health of local teens. The discussion centered on “student connectedness,” the researchbased idea that teen connections with adults at home and school go hand-inhand with well-being. A group of parents from St. Mark’s Episcopal Church lobbied the school board to adopt ongoing “connectedness” programs that would ensure no student could opt out or fall through the cracks. In September, the board listed “student connectedness” among its top priorities for this academic year. To boost connections and other indicators of mental health, community leaders settled on an approach called “Developmental Assets” — a list of 41 youth behaviors, such as “school engagement” and “positive family (continued on page 5)

ALL-NEW MUSICAL FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!

450 CAMBRIDGE AVE, PALO ALTO, CA 94306 (650) 326-8210

We don’t have $150 million lying around. — Larry Klein, Palo Alto City Councilman, regarding the cost of adding 3,000 parking spaces in order for the city to host a high-speed rail train station. High-speed rail continued to be a top issue in Palo Alto in 2010.

Around Town TO BAKERSFIELD AND BEYOND ... After enduring a month of “train from nowhere to nowhere� jokes from critics around the state, the California High-Speed Rail Authority decided this week to come up with a new plan for the first segment of the $45 billion rail line. The first segment, which was slated to stretch from the small city of Corcoran to the unincorporated community of Borden in the Central Valley, would now extend further south to Bakersfield, the authority’s board of directors decided Monday. But the reason for the switch had less to do with ridicule and more to do with an unexpected gift the authority received from the Federal Railroad Administration: $616 million in federal funding. The FRA decided to allocate these funds to California after original grant recipients Wisconsin and Ohio decided to scrap their fledgling rail programs. Tom Umberg, the vice chairman of the rail authority’s board of directors, began Monday’s meeting by thanking the two Midwest states for their “generosity.� “I actually grew up in Ohio, and I’m familiar with the hospitality of the Midwest, but this year they’ve really outdone themselves,� Umberg said. “Just a word to folks in Ohio and Wisconsin, we’re grateful and would be happy to receive other gifts of that nature.� Under the present plan, the rail line would ultimately stretch from San Francisco to Los Angeles and later extend to Sacramento and San Diego. A SPLASH OF ART ... The quaint and crumbling “bird bath� fountain near the California Avenue Caltrain station will soon be on its way out, and Palo Alto officials are busily planning for its replacement. The traditional fountain emerged as an object of controversy more than two years ago, when city officials proposed replacing it with an abstract sculpture designed by Bruce Beasley. At the time, a group of vocal residents pressed the city to drop the sculpture and come up with something more splashy and traditional — something like the current fountain. This time around, the city is giving residents three op-

tions — one traditional fountain and two sculptural fountains — and asking them to vote on which design they think is best. The three nominees will be available on the city’s Open City Hall website between Jan. 5 and 18, said Elise DeMarzo, a staff liaison to the Public Arts Commission. The commission will consider the public feedback and make a decision on the new fountain on Jan. 20. “At the end of the public-input period, the Art Commission can break down the results by residents and non-residents to see what the Palo Alto community, as well as the broader public served by California Avenue, prefers,� DeMarzo said in a statement. IDENTITY CRISIS ... Internet impostors will officially become criminals in the state’s eyes on Jan. 1, when a law providing “e-personation protection� takes effect. Senate Bill 1411, which was authored by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, would make it a misdemeanor for someone to use the Internet or other electronic means to impersonate someone else with “criminal intent to harm, intimidate, threaten or defraud.� Simitian said in a statement that e-personation is the “dark side of the social-networking revolution� and cited cases in which online impersonators pretended to be celebrities on Twitter, sent out obscene e-mail under other people’s identities and posed as other people on adult sites. Simitian was urged to tackle the issue by Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. Guardino said his name has been used to send “inflammatory e-mails� and his brother’s name was used on Facebook by an impersonator who made it seem as though the brother, a teacher, was mocking a disabled student. “E-personators are just bullies hiding behind technology,� Guardino said in a statement. “This law ensures these bad actors know there is a price to pay and holds them accountable for their behavior.� The new law would impose a fine of up to $1,000 and/or up to a year in jail for online impersonators.

Most Inflammatory Budget Battle: fire union vs. city For Palo Alto firefighters, the most heated battle of the year wasn’t against a foothills blaze or a burning building but a City Council and administration looking for budget savings. As the council wrestled with a $7.3 million structural (that is, long-lasting) deficit in the city’s budget in the first half of 2010, every labor group except for the firefighters’ union agreed to reductions in benefits, salary freezes or deferred raises. In a year of citywide belt-tightening, the Fire Department’s expenditures continued rising, prompting the council to commission new studies to evaluate department staffing and consider efficiencies. The council flirted with the idea of abolishing a “binding arbitration� provision in the City Charter — a provision that requires the council to go to mediation if it cannot reach agreement with public-safety employees. The council dropped the idea (for now) only after the police union opposed the idea. With labor negotiations deteriorating, firefighters roared back with a ballot measure, Measure R, which if approved would freeze staffing levels in the department and force the city to hold an election to reduce staff or close a fire station. Measure R went down in flames on Nov. 2, with more than 75 percent of voters opposed. But the tension between Palo Alto officials and firefighters continued to build as 2010 came to a close. In early December, a preliminary report from city consultants identified a “leadership malaise,� poor training and nearly

communication� — that researchers believe form the foundation of teen well-being. In the latter part of 2010, the Developmental Assets system was adopted across the community, by grassroots organizations as well as by the school district and City Council. A wealth of data on how Palo Alto students measure up on the “assets� will be available when the results of a detailed poll, which students took in October, come out in early 2011. By February, Palo Alto’s scores on “thriving indicators,� “risk behaviors,� “assets� and “deficits� will be compared to those of 50,000 other students in Santa Clara County and others around the country. “The big question we get from our community is, ‘How are we building assets in our students?’� said Amy Drolette, coordinator of student services for the school district. “The Developmental Assets survey will give us a snapshot of that.� School and community groups this year also undertook dozens of other efforts to boost youth mental and emotional health — some preexisting and others in direct response to the suicides. They include a wide variety of character-education programs in each of Palo Alto’s elementary schools as well as renewed efforts by the PTA, the Palo Alto Youth Council and faith organizations to pay attention to teen concerns.

A fireball exploded in San Bruno on Sept. 9, killing seven people and destroying dozens of homes. After intense public pressure, Pacific Gas & Electric finally acknowledged that the same pipeline runs along Page Mill Road and Oregon Expressway in Palo Alto. nonexistent planning in the Fire Department. It recommended consolidation of fire stations and better public education. The consultants, from the firms TriData and ICMA, plan to present their final findings and recommendations in February. Meanwhile, the city and firefighters remain stuck in contract talks. These discussions, as well as the general debate over staffing levels, are expected to spill over well into 2011.

Obfuscation of the Year: PG&E and City of Palo Alto Utilities City of Palo Alto Utilities and Pacific Gas & Electric Co. engaged in a confusing game of “hide the pipeline� in September, following the Sept. 9 San Bruno gas explosion and fire that killed seven people. Trying to quell fears that Palo Alto’s gas lines could be unsafe, both agencies refused to provide information to the public about where the pipelines run or what condition they were in, initially citing “security� issues or “Homeland Security� instructions. PG&E initially said it did not have any pipelines in Palo Alto. Palo Alto Utilities refused to comment on PG&E’s network, citing terror-

ism risks and the courtesy between the two utilities agencies not to provide information about each other’s systems — including showing maps within the city’s possession. PG&E would not disclose the diameter or age of its transmission lines and repeatedly failed to return e-mails and phone calls requesting information about maintenance and service to its lines through Palo Alto. But the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s online federal mapping website revealed that Line 132, the 54-year-old pipeline involved in the San Bruno explosion and fire, runs along Page Mill Road and Oregon Expressway in Palo Alto, eventually following Middlefield Road into Mountain View. Two other PG&E lines also run through Palo Alto. City utilities officials claimed the maps were not accurate but at first refused to provide correct information. On Sept. 20, City Manager James Keene sent a letter to PG&E demanding by Sept. 23 a current map with precise locations of all PG&E highpressure gas lines and other naturalgas facilities in Palo Alto, updated information on the condition of the (continued on page 6)

It Happened in Palo Alto In February 1906, there arrived in San Francisco, 27-year-old Neopolitan-born Gaetano Merola, piano accompanist to singer Eugenia Mantelli. San Francisco reminded Merola of Naples, and he resolved to live here if he did not go home. After returning on tours, Merola was invited by music patron Mrs. Oliver Stine to settle permanently. In 1921 his opera ambitions were stimulated when he saw a football game in Stanford Stadium, which with its ďŹ ne acoustics and setting reminded Merola of Rome’s Baths of Caracalla. Merola organized a company and raised money to produce opera in the stadium. He recruited musicians from the San Francisco Symphony and a local chorus, and rehearsed in a house at Hyde and Chestnut streets. Using his international contacts, Merola brought in Italian Giovanni Martinelli (considered the world’s greatest tenor), Spanish baritone Vicente Ballester, American soprano Bianca Soraya, and others. On June 3, 1922, he conducted Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci in Stanford Stadium, equipped with a stage and backdrop. Afterwards he conducted Carmen and Faust. The Stanford productions’ reception being enthusiastic, although they lost money, Merola planned a season in San Francisco. He negotiated with Martinelli, renowned tenor Beniamino Gigli, baritone Giuseppe De Luca, and others. An association board of directors was named. Donors pledged $75,000. Venue was a problem: San Francisco had had no major opera house since the Grand was destroyed in the Earthquake and Fire of April, 1906, and performances would have to be in Civic Auditorium, built for the 1915 Panama-PaciďŹ c International Exposition. A basically new theatre-within-a theatre was constructed, at a cost of $35,000, to accommodate patrons on the ground oor and balconies, plus boxes. Puccini’s La Bohème was performed on opening night, September 26, 1923. Merola remained active in San Francisco opera until 1953, when he died of a heart attack at the podium in San Francisco’s Sigmund Stern Grove.

city’s PG&E natural-gas facilities, where any unsafe lines have been identified in the city, the pipeline maintenance schedule and other pertinent information. PG&E officials met with the city, and workers inspected the pipelines and valves. PG&E announced a modernization plan on Oct. 12 that includes replacing manual shut-off valves with automatic shut-offs over 1,000 miles of pipelines and adopting “best practices.� But new, disconcerting information continues to undermine PG&E’s credibility. A federal probe released Dec. 14 into the cause of the San Bruno explosion found that the blown pipeline had several seams, including one that ran down the length of the pipe. PG&E was not even aware of the lateral seam, the report found.

Grassroots Idea With Greatest Impact: kindergarten-readiness bill Teacher power lives. That was the lesson in this year’s “kindergarten readiness� bill, signed into law Sept. 30 by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The law — which will change the kindergarten start date for future generations of California children — got its start in the classrooms of two Palo Alto teachers, Diana Argenti of Walter Hays Elementary School and Natalie Bivas of Palo Verde Elementary School. With recently ramped-up academic demands in kindergarten, the veteran educators had noticed a growing number of kids — particularly those with later birthdays — falling behind. They gathered signatures from nearly 300 fellow teachers and petitioned state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, to do something about it. While sympathetic, Simitian, a teacher’s son who’s been in the state Legislature for a decade, had witnessed the failure of numerous previ-

Tons of garbage are delivered to the Sunnyvale SMaRT Station each day. The city of Palo Alto ran into trouble this year when residents did too good a job reducing their waste, leaving the city with a huge financial hole due to contractual obligations. ous attempts to require that children turn 5 by Sept. 1 of the year they begin kindergarten. California remained one of the last states holding out for a Dec. 2 cutoff, effectively allowing about 100,000 4-year-olds into kindergarten each year. But Simitian agreed to carry forward Argenti’s and Bivas’s request, sensing this year could represent a “tipping point� on the issue, with both educational and financial arguments aligning for the change. With a bit of horse trading — including guarantees that the money saved would be put back into education in the form of transitional kindergarten for kids with fall birthdays — the bill made it to Schwarzenegger’s desk. Bivas said she felt as nervous as an “expectant father� on the night they were waiting to see whether Schwarzenegger would sign the bill. “Teachers often feel powerless to create change,� Argenti added. “But the observations of teachers can provide tremendous insight. “Teachers need the opportunity to speak, and leaders need the ability to listen with open minds.�

Public Agenda A preview of Palo Alto government meetings next week CITY COUNCIL ... The City Council has no meetings scheduled for this week.

lars,� Palo Alto City Councilman Greg Scharff proclaimed at a July meeting, referring to the city’s highly publicized campaign to divert local waste from landfills. The council had just learned that the city’s ultra-green Zero Waste campaign was sapping the city’s finances and forcing the city to throw away millions of dollars on a garbage quota it never delivers. The Zero Waste campaign worked too well. Local business embraced composting and drastically reduced trash loads. Residents ditched their traditional garbage cans and switched to the smaller and cheaper mini-cans — resulting in a 44 percent drop in landfill-bound garbage between 2007 and 2009. But as Kermit the Frog once observed: It’s not easy being green. Nor is it cheap. The cost of the city’s new hyper-green waste-management program drained the city’s Refuse Fund, which fell an astounding $8.1 million short of revenue projections in one year, surprising the council. Because most customers don’t have to pay fees for recycling or composting (unlike good old-fashioned trash), the city has to completely subsidize these services. The financial hole also threatened the city’s ability to meet its legal obligation to keep $6 million in the Refuse Fund for impending closure of the landfill in the Baylands, perhaps by 2012. A frustrated council voted to raise garbage rates in the fall, restrict hours at the local landfill, reduce outreach for Zero Waste and repeal its recently imposed ban on commercial waste at the landfill. Acknowledging that the current rate system doesn’t work, Public Works staff is also now working with consultants to revamp the city’s refuse-rate structure and possibly start charging residents for recycling — currently free, but as city officials like to remind residents, it is not costless. Changes are expected to debut in 2011 and could very well raise a stink among customers whose reward for green-waste practices (besides environmental benefits) will be another round of rising rates.

Project of the Year: Palo Alto libraries In a year filled with financial headaches and widespread concerns about Palo Alto’s decaying infrastructure, the city’s massive library-renovation project gleamed like a holy grail

With 2010 coming to a close, the project, for which city voters approved a $76 million bond in November 2008, is steaming ahead on schedule and under budget. The project set sail in April, when the Downtown Library closed its doors. When doors reopen in the summer of 2011, the small branch will be equipped with a new program

This year renovations to the Downtown Branch and a complete rebuild of the Mitchell Park Library and Community Center began. room, technology space and a larger collection. The large and well-used Mitchell Park branch was demolished in September and will re-emerge in the summer of 2012 with a large program room, an expanded collection, a small café and LEED Gold certification. The construction project — by far the biggest and most expensive in the Measure N package — was expected to cost the city about $49 million. In a rare bit of positive financial news, the bids for the Mitchell Park project came in about $8 million below budget. Expansion of the Main Library will commence once the Mitchell Park branch reopens.

In addition to progressing with the three bond-funded projects, the city also completed its eagerly awaited rehabilitation of the College Terrace Library, which reopened in November with a new roof, wider aisles, a host of electrical and mechanical upgrades and better accessibility for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The City Council lauded the progress of all the library projects at a recent meeting with the Library Advisory Commission. Mayor Pat Burt told the commission, “We’re at a transformation period in libraries and you get to be at the center of the transformation. ... The one constant

Campout of the Year: Quakeville Quakeville, a neighborhood trialrun campout at Juana Briones Park on Sept. 11, became the year’s disaster-prep symbol for emergency preparedness, one of five goals the Palo Alto City Council set for 2010. The event was the brainchild of Lydia Kou, the Barron Park Associa-

tion’s emergency-prep coordinator. It was supported by the city and the Palo Alto Neighborhoods group. Nearly 60 Barron Park, Leland Manor and Green Acres neighborhood residents turned out for the overnight dress rehearsal for a major earthquake and neighborhood evacuation. The all-volunteer group Palo Alto Neighborhood Disaster Activities (PANDA) handled logistics and staged a surprise “missing person” search. “There’s no way the city has enough emergency personnel to even come close to taking care of the entire community in the event of disaster,” Mayor Pat Burt told the campers.

Upfront City of Palo Alto ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

2010 in review (continued from page 7)

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a Draft Negative Declaration has been prepared by the Palo Alto Department of Planning and Community Environment for the project listed below. This document will be available for review and comment during a minimum 20-day inspection period beginning December 27, 2010 through January 18, 2011 during the business hours Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM; Wednesdays 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Development Center, 285 Hamilton Avenue and at the Department of Planning and Community Environment, 250 Hamilton Avenue, and online at: http:// www.cityofpaloalto.org/calave . This project is tentatively scheduled for consideration by the Planning and Transportation Commission at a public hearing on Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 7:00 P.M. in the Palo Alto City Council Chambers on the first floor of the Civic Center, located at 250 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, California. The California Avenue Streetscape Improvements (Phase II) project includes the implementation of streetscape treatments along California Avenue between El Camino Real and the Caltrain - Park Blvd Plaza. Project elements include: community identity markers; traffic calming treatments such as speed tables at existing mid-block crosswalk locations, bulb-outs at intersections to reduce crosswalk lengths, and a 4-lane to 2-lane reduction; streetscape elements such as decorative pavement bands to divide parking lanes from parking lanes, outdoor seating areas, enhanced bicycle parking elements, information kiosks, and newspaper racks; landscape improvements; enhanced and additional on-street vehicle parking; and community-focused improvements at the Caltrain - Park Blvd Plaza.

in the city’s system by calling unlisted numbers and coordinating notification in border areas between cities, city technical services officials said. The city also increased its support of citizen groups — a stated goal of its disaster plan — with a $20,000 grant to Palo Alto Neighborhood’s blockpreparedness coordinator program, which trains residents in basic radio communications and coordination with PANDA and first responders.

Though the event at times took on the feeling of a social gathering, the dry run did raise consciousness about several realities residents would face: among them, toilets, soap and pets. “Acting out an event like this made me realize how little I have together. I don’t have what I need to survive, let alone help my neighbors,” lifelong Palo Alto resident Marie Mandoli said.

in El Salvador and educated at an allgirls Catholic high school, was steeped in the ways of Palo Alto, having worked at Gunn or Paly almost continuously since arriving as a student teacher in 1995. She was well known to students at both high schools for her outsized passion for history and enthusiasm for the high school years. “I love teenagers — they’re just awesome,” Villalobos said shortly after she was named principal. “I know some people are scared off by them, but they keep me honest for sure, energized and on my toes.” Winston, a former special-education teacher who grew up in Milpitas, came to Palo Alto as a teacher at JLS Middle School but became dean of students at Gunn after just one year. “I’m a great listener, a good problem solver, and I enjoy shared decision-making. And I do a good job of keeping things student-centered” he told the Weekly. Winston and Villalobos took over in July, following the departures of Noreen Likins at Gunn and Jacquie McEvoy at Paly. Likins had been principal of Gunn for six years and, before that assistant principal for six years. McEvoy had been principal of Paly for three at-times-rocky years. She told students and faculty she was leaving with a “bittersweet heart.” N

2010’s odds and ends by Carol Blitzer, Jocelyn Dong, Tyler Hanley and Karla Kane Dance of the year: Decorum flew out Palo Alto City Hall windows when the stakes were high enough in mid-March: convincing Google to donate a citywide fiberoptic system that runs 100 times faster than the norm. Hoping to make a lasting impression, city staff and residents exuberantly leapfrogged and jived in front of City Hall to the tune of “YMCA” by the Village People, then posted video to Facebook. Will their effort top the Duluth, Minn., mayor’s jumping into a near-freezing Lake Superior? Google now says it won’t decide until early 2011.

King James: Actor (and Palo Alto native) James Franco made out like a bandit in 2010. The 1996 Paly graduate appeared in four major feature films from all across the cinematic spectrum. He played a tattooed degenerate in the comedy “Date Night,” embraced the role of poet Allen Ginsberg in “Howl,” romanced Julia Roberts in “Eat Pray Love” and rocked audiences with a Golden Globe-nominated performance in “127 Hours.” Franco also wrote a book (“Palo Alto: Stories”) and was tapped to co-host the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

Loudest exit: In a year full of exits from Palo Alto City Hall, Public Works Director Glenn Roberts’ was the loudest, with a settlement agreement that pays him $130,600 in exchange for (among other things) a promise never to apply for another city job. Insiders speculate his departure had something to do with an unexpected $8.1 million shortfall in the city’s Refuse Fund. The raft of retirees this year included other department heads: Library Director Diane Jennings, City Attorney Gary Baum, Fire Chief Nick Marinaro and, at the end of this month, Human Resources Director Russ Carlsen.

Reversal of fortune: While crime rates declined in East Palo Alto in 2010, Palo Alto dealt with an upsurge. Home burglaries, armed robberies and instances of indecent exposure occurred throughout the city in higher numbers in 2010. Residents grew particularly concerned about robberies and burglaries toward the end of the year, with armed robberies in residential driveways (Dec. 11 & 16) and on city streets (Oct. 27 and Dec. 4 & 6). The theft of a Droid smart phone on Oct. 5 drew a police helicopter to the scene. Cat fight of the year: After 56 years, Ernie’s Liquors, longtime

tenant of 3871 El Camino Real in Barron Park, moved across the street — to 3866. Yet Ernie’s Liquors still exists at 3871 El Camino Real — or at least that’s what the sign says. A legal squabble began when negotiations over a proposed rent hike broke down, and owner of the original Ernie’s picked up and moved. New tenants have applied for a liquor license under the old Ernie’s name. A lawsuit, already filed in Superior Court, will ultimately settle who owns that name. The year of the cat? 2010 was a year of adventures and intrigue for a pair of Palo Alto cats. A tabby named Tiger escaped from Classic Pet Grooming on Arastradero Road and an impostor cat was mistakenly offered to his family in his place. The real Tiger turned up in Los Altos weeks later and is back home. Another cat, Henry, was MIA in September until he somehow found his way to his owner’s Terman Middle School classroom. Lost treasure: Menlo Park resident Victor Lee was shocked to discover in January that his safedeposit box in Palo Alto, which he had not accessed since 1998, had been declared “abandoned,” its contents turned over to the state in 2001, as required by law. Lee had unwittingly allowed his account at the bank, which changed hands two times in the intervening years, to become inactive. Fortunately, after Lee filed a claim, the state

returned the box to him in February — with all his valuables still in it. Lesson learned. Celebrity central: Who visited Palo Alto in 2010? The question is: Who didn’t? The city’s guest list in 2010 included President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and actors Harrison Ford, Matthew McConaughey and George Clooney, among others. As one tourist from Florida remarked at the news of Medvedev’s visit (which for the tourist followed a sighting of former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice): “We’re very impressed this is such an interesting place.” N

A man who died early Saturday (Dec. 18) when his car hit a tree and parked vehicle on Middlefield Road in Palo Alto has been identified as Rune Thode Nielsen, the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed Tuesday. Nielsen, 25, a Danish national from Copenhagen and visiting scholar at Stanford University, who studied nanotechnology, was a resident of the St. Claire Gardens neighborhood. Nielsen “had a huge network of friends,� a source said. His family has been notified. Nielsen came to Stanford in March to complete a masters thesis, Lisa Lapin, assistant vice president of university communications, said. The campus will hold a memorial service in the new year, after everyone returns, she said. The crash occurred at about 12:50 a.m. as Nielsen drove south along Middlefield Road into Palo Alto, police said. His vehicle first struck a sign on the west side of the street, then slammed into a tree and ricocheted off a parked vehicle before coming to rest in the front yard of a home near the intersection of Middlefield Road and Hawthorne Avenue, according to police. Nielsen was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash is under investigation. N — Palo Alto Weekly staff

Gregory Elarms, 58, who was arrested Sunday (Dec. 19) and charged with the June 9 murder of East Palo Alto community activist David Lewis, could face the death penalty, Steve Wagstaffe, incoming San Mateo County district attorney, said Tuesday. Elarms is charged with two counts: murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm, with special allegations (use of a firearm to commit the murder) and a special circumstance of murder by lying in wait. Elarms could face life in prison without parole or the death penalty because of the lying-in-wait special circumstance, Wagstaffe said. Police announced the arrest Monday in the Hillsdale Shopping Center shooting after an intensive six-month investigation that only led to Elarms in the past several days and at least in part came from the suspect himself, according to San Mateo police Chief Susan Manheimer. Elarms has a criminal record stretching back to 1969, Manheimer said. He has two felony convictions: a 1983 burglary conviction in Santa Clara County and a conviction in San Mateo County in 1986 for possession of a controlled substance for sale, according to court records. In recent years, he had cleaned up his life and ended his drug use, friends said. He was a friend of Lewis, dating back to their childhood in East Palo Alto. Police allege Elarms spotted Lewis in the parking lot at San Mateo Medical Center, where Lewis worked, and followed him to Hillsdale mall, where he confronted Lewis in the parking garage.

Family of bicyclist files wrongful death lawsuit The family of a woman fatally struck by a big-rig while riding her bicycle in unincorporated Portola Valley last month has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in San Mateo County Superior Court against the driver and the trucking company he works for. Lauren Ward was riding her bicycle west on Alpine Road near Interstate Highway 280 at about 3:40 p.m. on Nov. 4 when she was hit by an 18-wheeler and was crushed under the big-rig, according to the California Highway Patrol. The CHP released a report Monday that found the driver of the big-rig, Gabriel Manzur Vera, was not at fault in the crash, but noted Vera had also been involved in two prior collisions that ended in fatalities. He was not found at fault in either of those cases. A separate investigative team, hired by Ward’s family and the San Francisco-based law firm Rouda, Feder, Tietjen & McGuinn, disagrees with the report’s finding, according to attorney John Feder. As a result, Feder filed the suit later Monday on behalf of Ward’s husband and two children against Vera and Randazzo Enterprises Inc., the Castrovillebased company that owns the big-rig. “While the CHP was conducting its investigation, we brought in scientists and other experts to evaluate the circumstances surrounding Lauren’s tragic death, and the team disagrees with the CHP’s conclusions as to the cause,� Feder said in a statement. The family “would like a jury to hear the evidence and decide,� he said. Officials with Randazzo Enterprises were not immediately available for comment. The CHP and the law office are asking witnesses to the crash to contact the Redwood City area CHP at 650-369-6261 or the law office at 415-398-5398.

2)#(!2$0'25%. Computer-industry pioneer and long-time Palo Alto resident Richard P. Gruen, 67, died on December 12th of heart failure, ďŹ ve years after a successful kidney transplant. He is survived by his mother Elizabeth Gervais-Gruen, brothers Bob, Daniel, and David Gruen, loving friend Stephanie Rosenbaum, and many more friends and colleagues. Dick began his association with computers in 1960, in an NSF-sponsored program at Columbia University. He graduated from Great Neck North High School in 1961 and from MIT in 1965, where he served as business manager of radio station WTBS. His recursive airfare calculation program, described in the February 1965 Tech Engineering News, was not duplicated commercially until 1999 (by ITA Software). During college he worked for IBM in Cambridge and in Switzerland, then joined Digital Equipment Corporation to develop early minicomputer PDP-5 (predecessor to the PDP-8), followed by systems software support for the PDP-6 and PDP-10 on the West Coast and in Europe. That involvement led him to the burgeoning timesharing industry, with stints at Tymshare, Computer Center Corporation (CCC) in Seattle, and ADP Network Services. One of Dick’s innovations at Tymshare and CCC was to hire high-school computer hobbyists, offering them

free computer time in return for ďŹ nding and reporting bugs. This mentoring gave him the distinction of being the ďŹ rst person to employ future Microsoft founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen. In 1978 Dick joined Intel Corporation as CAD systems manager. He was responsible for one of the ďŹ rst CAD networks, as Intel evolved to rely on CAD systems for product development. He supported design engineers in the USA, Japan, Israel, and France, continuing the world travel that included a year in The Netherlands for ADP. After the mid-80s, Dick turned to consulting, working on projects for Xerox, Tandem, Netscape, and the edgling Cisco Systems (then only 50 employees). In Palo Alto, Dick was an early advocate for energy conservation. He was a member of the War on Waste committee from 1981 to 1992, and served on the Utilities Advisory Commission from 1996 to 1999. His hobbies included ying (he earned a commercial multi-engine license), sailing his 29-foot sailboat the Microship, and scuba diving in the warm waters of Hawaii, the Caribbean, and the Great Barrier Reef. Later in life he traveled on small-ship cruises along the coast of Norway and to the Arctic Circle, Antarctica, and Iceland. A memorial gathering will be held in early 2011 to celebrate Dick’s life; for information, please email stephanie@teced.com. Memorials supporting kidney transplant research are preferred; contributions may be made to the Dr. David Sutherland Research Chair Fund at the University of Minnesota Medical Foundation, 200 Oak St SE, Suite 300, Minneapolis, MN 55455.

DESIGN

Longtime venture capitalist takes a different career path, becoming a fashion designer

hen Camilla Olson took her daughter to check out the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2007, she expected her daughter, who likes sewing, to be the one interested in attending the fashion school there. Her daughter was less than thrilled about the school. For 56-year-old Olson, however, it was love at first sight. “I wasn’t selling her on the school. I was sold,” said Olson, a retired Palo Alto venture capitalist and pharmaceutical marketer. Despite starting several companies, she has always told her friends that she does not have the creative gene. “Then I just saw all of the patterns on the wall (at the Academy), and it just felt like home to me,” she said. It has now been three years since she first enrolled in the Academy, where she double-majored in fashion and textile design, focusing on 3-D textile design. She graduated in June with a master’s degree in fine arts, and in September her spring 2011 collection was shown at Fashion Week in New York City. Her line, inspired by samurais and the movie “Blade Runner,” features laser-cut silk under-dresses covered by a top “cage” layer of open, grid-like lines of cloth, giving an edgy 3-D contrast to the layers of soft silk. Looking back at what

W

prompted her to make this major career change and follow her passion, Olson said that following her curiosity has always been a part of who she is. “I changed majors three or four times in college,” she said. “I worked washing glasses in a lab and would ask the guy there what he was doing using the scanning electron microscope. I took advantage of what was around me,” She ultimately got her bachelor’s degree in microbiology from the University of Maryland. Olson’s interests in fashion go back to her childhood. Her mother was a tailor in Virginia and would make her clothes. Later in life, Olson herself began sewing, encouraged by her own daughter. She started out trying to teach herself how to make a couture jacket. “It just looked handmade,” she said. “I kept thinking about how I could make it better.” She added: “I was trying to make clothes for myself because I couldn’t find good stuff for moms my age, baby boomers. Things out there are too old or too young.” Her detailed dresses were very time-consuming to make. After she learned how to make them, each “cage” took seven days, 15 hours per day, to make. The under-dresses consist of four layers of detailed laser-cut silk. Completing (continued on next page)

each layer of small cutouts in the silk took about three hours. About Fashion Week at Lincoln Center, Olson said: “That night and the next day were some of the best days ever. You know you’ve got it as perfect as you can, and you’re there with such smart people.” But later the high from the show went away. “I didn’t like waiting for people to review my line. Nobody likes to be talked about.” She said the other designers talked about how they go into a depression after the show. “I understand that now,” she said. Olson had started drawing concepts for her collection in June 2009. In December she made her collection for the first time and began modifying them in January of this year. “I can’t tell you how many changes I made: Move this seam, add sleeves, move this.” She spent much of time her at the academy, often staying in San Francisco overnight during the summer so she could be there every day getting her collection ready for Fashion Week. By her last year of school, Olson was meeting several times a week with instructors on her collection. “Nothing goes on the runway that they don’t approve of,” she said. “The program is like an apprenticeship; they help you solve problems.” Her 3-D dresses are complex in their look, as well as their meaning. The silk represents the soft inner nature of women while the cages represent women’s strong exterior, Olson said. “We are very tough as a gender,” she said in her home design studio, which was formerly a guest bedroom. Her studio consists of a large counter for laying out fabric, surrounded by wall shelves holding numerous bins and binders contain-

ing her materials, tools and design sketches. Many finished designs hang in a corner. Glancing over a sample box of brightly colored silk scarves that she had hand-printed, Olson said her designs are intended to provide women like her with sophisticated clothing. “I try to make things for women 35 and up who are intelligent, educated and in a position of leadership.” She pulled out a pair of black pants with strips of fabric running down the legs, creating 3-D pinstripes. “I want to do things because they are interesting,” she said, running her hands over the pinstripes that give a modern spin on a classic look. When asked what advice she had for people searching for that something they are truly passionate about doing, she said it is important to be curious about the people and things around you. In following her own interests in electron microscopy and pharmaceuticals, after college she wound up working at Johnson & Johnson. She earned a master’s degree in business administration in pharmaceutical marketing from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. Then Olson moved into venture capitalism and started five companies of her own. “I loved venture capitalism and meeting people with new ideas. The downside was when things don’t work out. You have to be tough,” she said. Olson founded the biotech software company Camitro, and Pharsight, a company that provides the pharmaceutical industry with software and services to improve drug development. She said that the entrepreneurial world had its challenges. “It was hard for me to strike a balance of compassion, decisiveness and profiteering,” she said. “Now people are ordering my dresses from my collection, and I’m thinking this is starting to look like a company.”

She hopes to continue focusing on the design aspect of fashion. “I thought the venture-capitalism aspects would be gone, but there are negative aspects to every career, seeing if people will like it and buy it.”Because of Olson’s background, it might have been easier for her to study fashion merchandising at the Academy of Art. But she said she purposely reached out of her comfort zone. “I put myself in design because I couldn’t draw or design,” she said. She added: “It took me by surprise: All my life I had used the left side of my brain. During the time I was getting my M.F.A., I could actually feel my right brain, the designer side. It was a huge eye-opener. “I’ve always been a curious person, wondering how to make things better. What I didn’t know is that you can do that in the artistic world.” Simon Ungless, director of fashion at the academy, praised Olson’s work. “She is really challenging herself with 3-D design and lasercutting textiles. She was really like a sponge, soaking up information as much as she could,” he said. Ungless agreed Olson was making a big shift in her abilities. “Her background was in careers that had all clear goals. Fashion is very subjective, and it is a challenge coming from the other side. She’s very patient. Drawing a design is one thing; when you create the design in 3-D is where things change from paper,” Ungless said. While Olson’s line is not currently available in any boutiques, she is selling individual pieces and will soon fly out to New York to fit a dress for a socialite. “I hope to have satisfied clients, whether I have four or 4,000,” she said.

(Century 16, Century 20) The Coen brothers place their indelible stamp on this impressive remake of the classic John Wayne western. Excellent production values (especially costume design) couple with standout performances from Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon for a terrific cinematic escape. But “Grit� lacks the emotional power of Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven� (1992) or even James Mangold’s “3:10 to Yuma� (2007), landing it squarely in the “good but not great� category of Hollywood westerns. Assertive young lass Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) is determined to track down her father’s killer, Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), who is hiding out deep in rugged Indian territory. Mattie is headstrong and defiant, and seeks to hire only the very toughest bounty hunter to bring in Chaney. Enter Rooster Cogburn (Bridges), a no-nonsense U.S. Marshal who speaks with a gruff voice and sports an eye patch. Also on Chaney’s trail (for a separate crime) is cocky Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Damon). After considerable dissention, the three odd companions elect to travel together in hopes of hunting down Chaney. In true Coen brothers fashion, an array of unique (and occasionally downright bizarre) characters interact with the trio along the way, including outlaw Ned Pepper (Barry Pepper) and a “doctor� decked out in bear fur. Tension and turmoil bubble up as Cogburn, LaBoeuf and Ross get closer to their objective. The Coens (“No Country for Old Men�) are accomplished filmmakers and bring their enviable prowess to “Grit.� Cinematography, set design and costuming are exceptional. From Cogburn’s weathered eye patch to LaBoeuf’s stubborn cowlick, the attention to detail is meticulous and thorough. The Coens nailed the atmosphere and tone of the genre — there is a rough, gritty feel to the entire

film that is quintessential western. Some of the film’s dialogue gets lost due to the traditional western language, and viewers may occasionally lean to a friend and whisper, “What did he just say?� Bridges is terrific as the unrefined, oft-drunken Cogburn — I’d wager even the Duke would applaud his performance. Damon is also in top form as LaBoeuf, and the dynamic that develops between Cogburn and LaBoeuf (who are almost polar opposites) is a highlight and really accentuates the talents of both gifted actors. Steinfeld (making her featurefilm debut) manages decently in the difficult position of sharing screen time with Bridges and Damon. Though her delivery is often too mannered and occasionally rushed, she never breaks character and seems wiser than her years. Kudos to the Coens for bringing some Old-West fun back to theaters. Rated PG-13 for some intense sequences of western violence including disturbing images. 2 hours, 8 minutes. — Tyler Hanley

Made in Dagenham --1/2

(Guild) “We are the working classes, the men and the women.â€? So goes the rallying cry in the quivering-lip climax of “Made in Dagenham,â€? a dramatization of the pivotal 1968 Ford autoworkers’ strike that led to the 1970 Equal Pay Act in the United Kingdom. While the story of these striking seat-cover seamstresses is well worth telling (and sadly still relevant, given the need for last year’s Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act), screenwriter William Ivory and director Nigel Cole (“Calendar Girlsâ€?) do not tell it well. The basic facts have been mulched into a simplistic inspirational tale with a prevailing light comic tone and a surplus of clichĂŠs culminating in a self-satisfying pat on the back

Rated R for language and brief sexuality. One hour, 53 minutes. — Peter Canavese

for all. It’s a story so politically correct, in our time, that no one would even think of questioning it. And Cole puts forward a film that’s wholly reassuring and completely unchallenging. Sally Hawkins, so good in Mike Leigh’s “Happy Go Lucky,� here plays Rita O’Grady, a chipper machinist for Ford’s Dagenham plant. Having languished under unfair treatment for years, the women begin to feel that the times may be on their side, and Rita finds herself the popular choice to be their spokeswoman. As it turns out, she’s expected to sit and listen as the men — including Ford’s head of industrial relations (Rupert Graves) and the local union leader (Kenneth Cranham) — do the talking. But Rita heroically pipes up, setting in motion a workers’ walkout that settles into a long, tense stalemate. The tension migrates from work to home for both management and the working class. On the council estate, Rita doesn’t quite get the full support of her gape-mouthed husband, Eddie (Daniel Mays), while Rita’s new best friend, Lisa (Rosamund Pike), turns out to be sleeping with the enemy; she’s married to the man tasked with quashing the strike. It doesn’t help the storytelling that the characters play as stereotypes — Mays as an overgrown yobbo, Pike as the deferential posh wife — whose character arcs will evidently lead to lessons learned. (To balance Mays’ neanderthal, we get Bob Hoskins as a sympathetic shop steward.) Cole would rather caricature history than play subtle notes; as a result, the film’s most pertinent details nearly get lost in the shuffle. What turn out to be interesting in “Made in Dagenham� aren’t the social melodramas (like an underfed side plot involving the physical deterioration of one worker’s husband) but rather watching political sausage get made by the small-timers (the craven union boss more interested in his allexpense-paid trips into the city for steak lunches) and the power players (Miranda Richardson’s Secretary of State for Labour & Productivity, caught between the rock of her gender loyalty and the hard place of protecting a delicate economy). Cole has a fine cast here, but he hasn’t protected them by calibrating their performances for the screen. “Made in Dagenham� is right to champion greater wages for women, but when it comes to art, bigger isn’t always better.

It was quite a present

California Newspaper Publishers Association

Sports Shorts SOCCER HONOR . . . Stanford senior forward Christen Press was named Soccer America’s Women’s Player of the Year on Wednesday. Press became the second straight Cardinal to win the award, following Kelley O’Hara last year. Press came out of O’Hara’s shadows, leading the nation in goals (26), points (60) and scoring 10 game-winning goals. She also broke Stanford career records in goals (71), assists (41), and points (183). “It was great experience playing with Kelley,” said Press. “I learned so much from her. And we definitely had a great connection. This year, we’ve been attacking as a team a lot more and we have people coming from all positions and all angles. Rachel Quon comes up the outside, Teresa Noyola sneaks up the middle, so it’s opened up a lot of opportunities for all of our team to put balls in the back of the net.” Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe said Press’s influence extended to beyond the playing field. “Christen has emerged as a fantastic leader,” he said. “Everyone talks about what a talented player she is, but for me, her leadership skills have been tremendous this year. She really cares about everyone on the team, she works so hard in training, and she’s an example for all the younger players. She has really emerged as a great leader and that’s been a big part of our success.”

Palo Alto still savoring its first state championship by Keith Peters arl Hansen will sit down on Saturday with his wife, Marilyn, and his son, Peter, and go through the ritual that countless citizens around the world will be performing on Christmas Day — opening presents. There is nothing under his tree, however, that will quite live up to the once-in-a-lifetime gift that Hansen received last weekend when his Palo Alto High football team presented him with a 15-13 victory over Centennial (Corona) in the CIF Division I state championship at the Home Depot Center in Carson. So, opening up packages filled with ties or slippers or even a nice warm sweater just won’t cut it this season. “I’ve already got it,” Hansen said of his 2010 Christmas present. “It’s a pretty darn good one.”

Coach, Congratulations on a great victory. I live in Corona and was rooting for Centennial. However, as I watched the game I noticed how your players would help Centennial players up after a play, and would also pat Centennial players on the back after a good play. I did not notice the Centennial players reciprocating. You are obviously doing an excellent job preparing these young men for life as well as to play football. Thanks, and good luck next year. You now have a fan in Corona. – Regards, Dave Crouch Corona, CA

many of us, this is our last high school football game. None of us could have scripted it any better.” The Vikings (14-0) executed defensive coordinator Jake Halas’ defensive scheme to perfection, got spectacular touchdown catches by Davante Adams and Maurice Williams and took advantage of Centennial’s first sloppy and sub-par game to record their first undefeated season since 1963 (9-0). Paly also went 6-0 in 1924, 10-0 in 1950, 8-0 in 1951 and 8-0 in 1956. The shocking finish elevated Palo Alto to No. 13 in the Freeman

Rankings on MaxPreps. The Vikings were listed No. 19 in the final Xcellent 25 national rankings, also on MaxPreps, as well as No. 4 in the state behind state champs De La Salle and Folsom and Open Division runnerup Servite. Palo Alto also was ranked No. 21 in the nation in USA Today’s Super 25 and No. 30 in the U.S. by ESPNRise. This is the first time the Palo Alto football team has ever been nationally ranked. Palo Alto senior quarterback Christoph Bono (13-of-23, 223

yards) completed first-half touchdown passes of 11 and 80 yards to Adams and Williams, respectively, en route to a 15-0 lead and held off a second-half rally led by 6-foot-5, 225-pound quarterback Michael Eubank, who accounted for almost 3,900 yards and 40 touchdowns coming into the game. “We’ve been the underdog all season,” said Williams, who had the key (continued on page 23)

touchdown of the game, an 80-yard reception with 1:21 left in the first half, and partially blocked kicker Ezequiel Rivera’s 42-yard field goal with 30.4 seconds to play to seal it. “And we were never a bigger underdog than tonight. This wasn’t just a great way to end the season. It was the perfect way to end it.” The Vikings’ defense bent all night against what many considered the nation’s top offense — Centennial finished with 460 yards, down from its average of 535 — but toughened up in the red zone, twice holding on downs inside the 10 on clutch tackles by linebackers Michael Cullen and Will Glazier plus safety T.J. Braff on Eubank. Braff and Cullen, who led the team with 10 tackles each along with Stanford-bound defensive end Kevin Anderson, also combined to bring down Eubank on a 2-point conversion try with 4:14 left after the quarterback scored on a 33-yard run to close to 15-13. “I was suppose to take the pitch, but I saw he was going to take it so I went after him,” said Braff, who also forced a fumble and recovered two fumbles. “(Cullen) was awesome all night. Our entire defense was. We all just came in playing loose like we had nothing to lose.” Said Palo Alto head coach Earl Hansen said about his defense: “Discipline, discipline, discipline. Those guys just played their butts off and came through when it counted most.” Halas, a Southern California native and a distant nephew of legendary NFL coach George Halas, said he slept little trying to prepare against a team that averaged 53 points and 536 yards per game coming in. Centennial managed three 100yard rushers, including Eubank (164 yards on 16 carries), but the Huskies (14-1) mustarded only two second-

Palo Alto senior quarterback Christoph Bono completed 13 passes for 223 yards and two TDs in the Vikings’ win at the state finals. half touchdowns. “We had two weeks to prepare for these guys and watched more film than you can imagine,” Halas said. “We have smart kids who can make adjustments, but make no mistake, we have kids who are tough as nails.” They had to be to knock off three consecutive favored private-school West Catholic Athletic League opponents in the Central Coast Section playoffs heading into Friday’s game. And they had to in order to keep Centennial’s no huddle, spread, and Oregon lookalike offense out of the end zone seven of nine possessions. “That was a great team we just beat,” Williams said. “If we would have played them five quarters instead of four, they might have got us. But like we’ve done all season, we proved people wrong.” Centennial, which felt slighted that it wasn’t picked into the state’s ultimate game, the Open Division contest, was presumably going to make

a statement and take it out on Palo Alto. Instead, the Huskies struggled, right down to the game’s first and ultimately deciding points. A shotgun punt snap — Centennial attacks via the shotgun every play — sailed over the head of long quarterback Eubank, who landed on it in the end zone, giving Palo Alto a 2-0 lead with 8:41 left in the first quarter. “That set the tone,” Centennial coach Matt Logan said. “It just wasn’t our night. Every time we got something going, we’d have some sort of breakdown. I give (Palo Alto) all the credit. They were more ready to play than we were.” Centennial had 11 penalties for 112 yards including holding calls that wiped out a touchdown run and a 40-yard pass play. The Huskies also had three unsportsmanlike penalties. “We didn’t tackle well,” Logan said. “We turned the ball over. We had horrible penalties at the worst time. Those are simply our mis-

takes that we had control on. Unfortunately it came the wrong week to do it.” After the safety, the Vikings made it 9-0 on a beautiful 15-yard TD pass to Adams in the back of the end zone midway through the second quarter. Bono rolled right and fired a strike to a leaping Adams, who came down hard and injured his ankle but later returned. “Christoph made a perfect throw,” Adams said. “It was a painful injury, but it was definitely worth it. There was no way I was dropping that thing.” The two connected on a 28-yard completion the play before when Bono escaped a strong rush, rolled left and found Adams, who made another leaping catch. “We have great receivers and we have guys who believe in one another,” Bono said. Those two catches paled to Palo Alto’s next score an 80-yard bomb to the team’s other dynamic wideout Williams. Bono threw the ball as far as could into the rainy night, Williams came back to the pass and wrestled it away from a defender, then sprinted from the right sideline to the left pylon, making it 15-0 (the Vikings missed a two-point conversion) with 1:21 left in the half. The score came two plays after Palo Alto held on downs at the Vikings’ 5, making it a virtual 13point swing. “I just out-worked the dude for the ball,” Williams said. “I wasn’t going to be denied. We weren’t going to be denied. Nobody believed it but us. It’s a great feeling.” Especially great for Palo Alto backers, considering the Vikings’ girls volleyball team won the state Division I championship with a fivegame win over Long Beach Poly. Bono’s sister Sophia was on the volleyball team. “It’s a great time to be a Viking,” Bono said. -- Mitch Stephens is a national columnist for MaxPreps.com

THE DEFENSIVE STANDS

THE NUMBERS

Four key defensive plays that made a difference in Palo Alto’s 15-13 victory over Centennial (Corona) in the CIF Division I state championship game:

Significant numbers from the Palo Alto-Centennial CIF Division I championship game:

First Quarter With time running out in the opening period, Centennial drives to the Paly 23. On fourth down, Centennial running back Barrinton Collins is stopped by Paly’s Chris Martinez for no gain. The result? The Vikings take over and drive 77 yards in 10 plays with Christoph Bono throwing an 11-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams for a 9-0 lead. Second Quarter Centennial drives to the Paly 7. With 1:51 left in the half, Centennial QB Michael Eubank is stopped by Paly linebacker Will Glazier and Kevin Anderson. The Huskies also are penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and the Vikings take over on their own 20. The result? Two plays later, Bono throws an 80-yard

touchdown pass to Maurice Williams for a 15-0 halftime lead. Third Quarter Centennial drives to the Paly 2. On 4th and goal, Eubank is thrown for a one-yard loss by Tory Prati and Michael Cullen. The result? Palo Alto takes over and goes on a 15-play drive that consumes over nine minutes. Fourth Quarter Centennial closes the gap to 15-13 when Eubank breaks through the line and races 33 yards to score. On a two-point conversion try, Eubank decides to keep the ball and is stopped short of the goal by T.J. Braff, Cullen and Glazier (among others). The result? Paly prevents a tie game with 4:14 to play. -- Keith Peters

THE QUOTES “It’s huge. It’s unbelievably huge. We came down here and it was David and Goliath. One projection I heard was we were going down 50-9.” -- Palo Alto senior linebacker/tight end Michael Cullen “Too perfect to be true right now.” -- Palo Alto wide receiver/cornerback Maurice Williams “We just kept fighting - no one let their head drop at any point. They scored a touchdown, and we immediately thought about how we could make up for it. That’s the way everybody on this team thinks and it showed.” -- Palo Alto wide receiver/cornerback Davante Adams “Best offense in California of all time? We wanted to prove we could stop that.” -- Paly two-way lineman Kevin Anderson “We built; every week, we built on it. We said, ‘Hey, we have a special defense here.’ It just built up our confidence each week until this game.” -- Palo Alto two-way lineman Tory Prati “Fumbles, missed opportunities on pass plays, not blocking well, misreads -- a bunch of things that don’t normally happen but happened tonight.” -- Centennial QB Michael Eubank, on what tripped up his team’s offense “Every time we got something going, we’d have some sort of breakdown. I give (Palo Alto) all the credit. They were more ready to play than we were.”-Centennial coach Matt Logan “We did a lot of different looks. It was like a chess match; every play was a chess match.” -- Paly defensive coordinator Jake Halas “They were not going to be denied. They were not allowing those guys to score.” -- Palo Alto head coach Earl Hansen, on his team’s goal-line stands “Our goal was to keep Centennial under 30 points and let our offense do the work in a shootout. Turns out, we played the game of our lives.” -- Palo Alto linebacker Will Glazier “Greatest day of my life. We played as a team, like we have all year, and stopped the No. 1 offense in California history.” -Michael Cullen “I’m numb right now. I started to keel over after (we won). I couldn’t believe it. These guys, they’re warriors. In every playoff game we were the underdog, but they just played. I’d take my guys over theirs any day.” -- Jake Halas “We knew we were the underdog according to everyone else. We proved it to everyone else. We knew we could do it. It’s official -- we’re state champs!” -Davante Adams “This wasn’t just a great way to end the season. It was the perfect way to end it.” -- Maurice Williams

The Palo Alto football team begins to celebrate following its shocking 15-13 victory over No. 5 nationally ranked Centennial of Corona in the CIF Division I state championship game last Friday night. Hansen realized that on Monday when he was cleaning out the lockers and realized there was not another practice to attend. “All of a sudden you’re walking around at 3:30, wondering what to do,” he said. The Vikings had 78 practices this season. By one player’s calculations, that translated into about 9 1/2 days of workouts. That’s a lot of time for anyone to spend together. The Paly used that time to bond as a team, improve at critical positions and form a mindset that there was no reason why they couldn’t win each week. Hansen had major concerns about his offensive line, for one. It was just so untested. To make matters worse, he lost his top two centers (Jackson Moses and Sam Moses) during a win over Homestead on Oct. 29 and had to spend the next week trying to plug that hole. Other players were injured in that game, as well, and it became known to the Vikings as the “Homestead Massacre”, and not because Paly won comfortably. By the time Paly reached the state finals, the offensive line featured senior Kevin Anderson, junior Tory Prati, sophomore center Spencer Drazovich, senior Dustin Nizamian and junior Mike Lyzwa. While Hansen said his 2006 team probably produced the best offensive line in school history, based on its size, this year’s line wasn’t far behind. “These guys found a way to get it done each week,” Hansen said. “They improved so much.” The fact that senior quarterback Christoph Bono finished the season with 165 completions on 251 attempts for 2,682 yards and 30 touchdowns reflects on the offensive line. The fact junior running back Dre Hill gained 952 yards on 145 carries and junior B.J. Boyd added 772 rushing yards on just 95 hauls says a lot, as well. And don’t forget senior wide receivers Davante Adams (63 catches, 1,089 yards, 11 TDs) and Maurice Williams (28 catches, 798 yards, 11 TDs), who had time to get

No one would dispute that. Those big boxes of excitement and satisfaction are only handed out to five California high school football coaches each season. Hansen had his hands out in 2006, but received only a lump of coal after his Vikings reached the Division II state finals only to lose to Orange Lutheran. Last weekend, however, was different as Palo Alto scored the year’s big gift with, most likely, one of the most surprising results in the nation this year — given the fact Centennial was ranked No. 5 in the nation and No. 2 in the state and had the most prolific offense in state history. Palo Alto won in the rain and mud with its defense, its teamwork and its heart. The Vikings beat a team that was deemed unbeatable as the Huskies had averaged 54.8 points a game and hadn’t scored fewer than 42 during a 14-0 season. All Palo Alto did was accomplish something no other team had while becoming the first Central Coast Section team to win a state football crown. Thus, Hansen and his players walked off the muddy turf last Friday not only with a state championship trophy, but a 14-0 record and tons of pride. Had the game been played on Christmas Eve, analogies with miracles would have been the norm. It has been a week since Palo Alto registered its historic victory while becoming the sixth Paly football team to go undefeated. The others came in 1924 (6-0), 1950 (10-0), 1951 (8-0), 1956 (8-0) and 1963 (9-0). Things have returned to normal, sort of, for Hansen. On Monday, he and his coaches cleaned out the football lockers so the Paly basketball players could move in. On Tuesday, Hansen was

raking leaves and cutting the grass. On Wednesday, he was putting up more outdoor Christmas lights. While this seems all so normal (and it is), Hansen still has his head somewhere near Cloud 9. He has been receiving phone calls and emails daily, even getting an e-mail from a father of a Centennial player (see front page box). He has heard from former players and ex-teammates who played with him at Cubberley High in the late ‘60s. Hansen recently got an e-mail from a man who used to swim at the neighborhood Greenmeadow pool when Hansen worked there. “I hadn’t heard from him in over 40 years,” Hansen said. That’s just one of the many perks being a state championship coach. It’s just one of the many reminders of how many folks can be affected by a football game. Wrote a fan from another city in Northern California: “Congratulations Viking players, coaches and parents! What a fantastic end to a magical season. All of northern CA and the area is very happy for you guys. You exemplify all that defines “Team.” You all gave it your best and no matter the outcome you would all be winners. Best wishes on all your endeavors and keep your belief the rest of your lives. Thanks for putting the CCS back on the football map with such a great outing.” Said another reader from the Paly community: “I thought it was crazy to drive 800 miles through the rain to see a high school football game, but I am glad we did it! It was just amazing, I am so happy for the kids at Paly, they will remember this with a glow for the rest of their lives. Congratulations! As soon as life seems to have returned to normal, all Hansen has to do is go to his computer and open up his e-mail. This has been a special time for Palo Alto football and not something easily dismissed.

T

he Priory girls’ soccer team received an early Christmas present on Tuesday, a tournament championship. The Panthers completed their successful run through the Burlingame Winter Showcase by defeating Sacred Heart Cathedral, 2-1, for the championship. The Panthers needed either a win or a tie to claim the crown. Priory actually trailed 1-0 in the first 15 minutes before getting the equalizer in the 20th minute on a standout individual effort by sophomore Mariana Galvan, who dribbled past two defenders just inside the left box, cut it back to her right foot and found the upper corner. Priory sophomore keeper Liz Oliphant kept her team in the match with three significant saves before Galvan was fouled at the top of the penalty box with just four minutes left to play. While the SHC keeper was setting up her wall, Galvan took the shot, hitting the opposite post with it angling in for the winner. Molly Simpson, Lauren Barkman, Alex Schnabel and freshman Kaitlyn Teoman all were praised by associate head coach Henry Arredondo for their standout defensive play. In the semifinals on Monday, Priory put itself in position to possibly win the tourney with a 1-0 victory over host Burlingame. Priory got the game-winning goal in the 18th minute after Galvan broke through two defenders and was taken out by the Burlingame keeper, resulting in a penalty kick. Galvan converted the PK and the goal stood up for the win. Boys’ basketball Gunn’s three-game win streak at the Fremont-Sunnyvale Holiday Basketball Tournament came to an end in a 66-55 loss to Mountain View in the championship game on Tuesday night. The Titans (7-4), making their fifth appearance in the finals in the past six years, wound up losing to their coach of last season, Jim Forthoffer. Gunn trailed by 38-21 at halftime before rallying. Senior Matt Redfield, who had scored in double figures in all three previous tourney games, was held to seven. Senior Anthony Cannon stepped up with a career-high 25 as he knocked down four treys. He tallied 16 points in the second half. Jack Hannan added 12 points for Gunn and joined Redfield on the 10player all-tournament team. In another Fremont tourney finale, junior Bradley Naumann tal-

On Monday, it was plenty of defense and just enough offense as Sacred Heart Prep captured the Half Moon Bay Tournament with a 44-33 triumph over Lynbrook. The Gators (5-0) finished off their three-game sweep by limiting the Vikings to just three points in the fourth quarter. Helen Gannon provided 12 points, all coming on three-pointers, and was named to the all-tournament team aling with teammates Melissa Holland and Catherine Donahoe. Holland contributed 10 points and Donahoe added eight. Megan Holland tossed in nine points. Lynbrook hurt itself by making only six of 22 free throws. N

Sports STANFORD ROUNDUP

Cardinal men look forward to playing at home again After back-to-back losses on the road, Stanford men’s hoop team hosts Yale next week with hopes of ending loss streak by Rick Eymer he Stanford men’s basketball team needs to keep tapping its collective heels together and repeat “there’s no place like home,” as often as possible. If the Cardinal players close their eyes, then just maybe all these yellow brick road nightmares will simply vanish. The Cardinal was far more competitive Tuesday than it had been in its previous game away from home but the result was the same. Josh Owens had 21 points and 10 rebounds but Stanford suffered its second straight loss, dropping a 79-68 decision to host Oklahoma State as part of the Pac-10/Big 12 Hardwood Classic series Tuesday night. The Cardinal (6-4) lost to host Butler, 83-50, last Saturday. Jeremy Green added 17 points as four Stanford players reached double figures overall. Aaron Bright had 12 points, including an 8-of-8 effort from the foul line, and Dwight Powell added 10. The Cardinal (6-4) returns home to host Yale at 7 p.m. next Tuesday. Stanford is undefeated in five games at Maples Pavilion this season. The road trip couldn’t end soon enough. Bright saw his most significant action of the season (34 minutes) and responded. He also had a teamhigh four assists and did not commit a turnover. The starting lineup included Andrew Zimmerman and Gabriel Harris, who swiftly got into foul trouble, as coach Johnny Dawkins continues to search for the right combination. Stanford led, 33-28, with less than

T

a minute to play in the first half. The Cowboys scored the final six points of the period to take a 34-33 halftime lead. Oklahoma State (11-1) eventually completed a 14-2 run that bridged both halves. The Cowboys were 11-of-19 from long range, including Keiton Page’s fifth of the night with 59 seconds remaining to play. Green made a pair of free throws with 1:33 left to bring the Cardinal within 69-63. Baseball Stanford’s numbers are beginning to add up to something special and the season has yet to start. The Cardinal (31-25 last year) was voted 10th overall in Collegiate Baseball’s preseason national poll earlier this week. The first official ranking of the season came on the heels of Kenny Diekroeger, the Menlo School grad, being included on Collegiate Baseball’s preseason All-American team. The publication also rated Stanford’s latest recruiting class as tops in the nation. Wrestling Stanford senior Zach Giesen and junior Nick Amuchastegui each won their weight division at the Reno Tournament of Champions last Sunday. Justin Paulsen placed fourth in the 133-pound division as the Cardinal finished eighth as a team with 65 points. Stanford returns to action in the Midlands Championships beginning Wednesday at Northwestern. N

Stanford women getting ready for Xavier Cardinal will host the No. 4-ranked Musketeers on Tuesday night by Rick Eymer nding a two-game losing streak was more important to Stanford women’s basketball coach Tara VanDerveer than her 800th career victory. There are more important issues to work out over the Christmas break. Finding another point guard, for example, likely tops the list. Adding a little depth wouldn’t be a bad idea either. The eighth-ranked Cardinal (6-2 before Wednesday night) has plenty on its plate next week, with No. 4 Xavier and top-ranked Connecticut visiting Maples Pavilion. The Musketeers (10-1) lost their first game of the season at third-ranked Duke earlier this week and their visit Tuesday to Stanford, with a 1 p.m. scheduled tipoff, is their next contest. Xavier would not only like to get that loss out of its system but gain some measure of revenge for losing to Stanford in last year’s Elite Eight, a game decided when Jeanette

E

Pohlen raced the length of the court to score on a layup with no time remaining. Connecticut, meanwhile, plays at Pacific Tuesday before coming to Stanford for a 6 p.m. game on Thursday. The Huskies, winners of a college basketball record 89 straight, need no introduction. They continue to rule the sport with an iron fist and no amount of prying seems to work. The Cardinal was scheduled to play at USF in front of a packed house at Memorial Gym on Wednesday night. VanDerveer’s 800th career win was almost anticlimactic, coming against her former player, All-American and Olympian Jennifer Azzi, in her first year with the Lady Dons. The Cardinal entered its game at USF on a two-game losing streak, dropping a 91-71 decision to host DePaul last Thursday and then losing to Tennessee, 82-72, in overtime last Sunday night. N

guy’s guide to last-minute A

shopping

I by Nick Veronin

â?‰

t is a well-worn gag, drilled into the ground by television commercials and cheesy sitcoms with canned laugh tracks that play after each tired punch line and pun: the space-case guy who forgets to buy his sweetheart a gift until the day of; in a panic, he sets off to find a suitable present before time runs out. Well, guess what? Trite though it may be, there is more than a kernel of truth to that stereotype. Just ask Erika Posadas. “It’s usually guys doing lastminute shopping,� Posadas says, standing behind the register at The Body Shop. Posadas has worked at this Stanford Shopping Center location for more than a year, and has been in retail for about a decade. She says that as Christmas Eve draws nigh she sees many frantic young men dash into The Body Shop looking for a last-minute gift for a mother, sister or girlfriend on their list. When that happens she knows what to do. She says gift sets are very popular among the 11th-hour crowd. These sets combine a smattering of items — hand cream, body butter, lip balm and lotion — in one ready-to-go package. In the case of Posadas’ store, the prefab boxes of beauty products are even adorned with a bow, which saves the step of wrapping. Cosmetics are not the only type of gift that comes in bundles. Consider the local Starbucks

or Peet’s. All those impulse items stacked on shelves and display tables throughout the store — that ceramic mug, half-pound of Sumatra beans and French press package, for example — make great gifts. The crafty giver might even pull apart the bundle, Posadas points out. Because the sets are often a better deal than purchasing each item individually, the thrifty gifter can save a few bucks by dividing up such a package. Mark Wheldon, while waiting in line to pay for a shirt at Macy’s, says that when it comes down to the wire and he needs a gift for mom, he might go for jewelry or something craftsy. If his brother or a friend suddenly announces they are coming by for a holiday visit, it is really easy. “Liquor,� Wheldon says. There is twobuck Chuck, all the way up to Johnnie Walker Blue Label, depending on how well you know the guy. A clerk at Macy’s, who asked that he not be identified since he was not authorized to talk to the media, says that the closer it gets to Dec. 25 the more he sees small items, such as ties, wallets and hats flying off the shelves.

Priyal Sheth, another Macy’s shopper, says that when it comes to the women in his life, he goes with accessories or perfume. It makes for a worry-free purchase, he says, because “I’m not too familiar with sizes.� For male friend, Sheth says a video game or something from an electronics store would do in a pinch. And then, of course, there is the gift card. Although it is maligned by some for being impersonal and uncreative, one thing is certain — letting people choose their own gift is a sure-fire way to ensure that they get what they want. These days, with debit gift cards available at the checkout counter of most major groceries stores, it is easy to pick up a gift for someone anytime. Finally, here is an idea for the fantastically frugal shopper: dollar stores. Sure, it may sound cheap to some, miserly even. But, hey, you barely know your girlfriend’s uncle’s new squeeze from Adam, and at the rate that Casanova burns through gal pals, it will be a wonder if she is still around next week to give him a New Year’s kiss. Plus, have you been to a dollar store lately? They have some pretty useful items. A set of wine glasses, some candlesticks, tree ornaments and other great stocking stuffers can be found. The point is that options abound and are often hiding in plain sight. For the resourceful gifter there is no such thing as last minute. ■

by Sarah Trauben on’t know what to get your partner, grandparent or close friend this holiday season? Perhaps offering the opportunity to learn a new skill — whether it’s dancing, cooking or tennis — will fit the bill. Just in the nick of time, Palo Alto Community Services Department is debuting a pilot program that allows you to let your friends choose classes according to their interests. Giftgivers can “get a gift certificate for any amount, to be used for any class offered by the city of Palo Alto,” EJ Taylor, a program supervisor, said. Gift certificates are available at all class registration sites, and a person who receives them can put the gift toward materials as well as registration fees for a variety of courses. Among the Community Services Department’s offerings for winter quarter is Brazilian dancing, taught by Anita Lusebrink in the Lucie Stern Community Center ballroom.

The Thursday evening lessons are not intended for couples, Lusebrink said, but are suitable to a variety of skill levels and give your recipient some active time alone or with a friend. It’s “an hour of upbeat fun exercise to get you in touch with your hot side,” Lusebrink said. Or you could sign your friend up for Kunwar Singh’s new Bhangra/ Bollywood fusion course. Both a trained dancer and an attorney-by-day, Singh encourages people of all skill levels to blow off steam by enrolling in the class combining Bhangra, Bollywood, Arabic, Turkish and free-style dances. In addition to giving your friend some cardiovascular exercise, Singh said, the dance is “high energy and very expressive, so if you combine the two, it makes for a great hour.” Dance classes might seem like an odd gift choice for a friend who is older or less active, but some creative thinking might land your intended recipient a great gift.

Belly-dancing instructor Satareh, who learned the art as a teenager and has studied belly dancing in Egypt, said that her classes suit a wide variety of people. Satareh teaches basic techniques and isolated movements and said that belly dancing “is one of the more adaptable sorts of dancing: You can be any age, gender or ability and still get a lot out of it. ... The people who probably wouldn’t consider themselves prime candidates for being a belly dancer probably get the most benefit.” For those who prefer more traditional exercise, look to Jim Heebner, a ranked tennis professional, who offers courses for adults and children at various levels of ability through Menlo Park Recreation Department. “It’s a great gift for a wife to give to her husband or a husband to give to his wife. It’s a way for them to learn tennis or get back into it,” Heebner said, adding that spouses

could take small group classes as a pair if they have similar skills. People trying to get “back in the game” in other ways could benefit from computer classes at Palo Alto Adult School, Ellen Engelman suggested. She teaches courses including “Stay Connected Using Email and the Internet” and said that retirees and people looking to rejoin the workforce have learned to use technology to get and stay in touch. That particular course teaches basic skills such as how to use e-mail and attachments. “Older people are being given gifts of computers but have never used one before. ... This class is great for people who learn by the seat of their pants and need a more structured way to solidify their skills,” she said. Yanette Fichou Edwards, who also teaches at Palo Alto Adult School, offers lessons in cooking skills, which might make a great gift to share with co-workers, family and friends. She also offers private group lessons, citing motherdaughter gingerbread-making, team-building sushi workshops and a group tutorial in ethnic food. “The sky’s the limit as to what you can learn and the experience you can give to your friends,” she said, “and if you aren’t creative, we can come up with something together.” Your gift of a class can also teach crafts skills, particularly if your intended recipients enjoy learning greener skills in their spare time. DeAnne Appleton offers public and

private classes and has an arsenal of skills to teach students, including alterations and hemming. “I encourage my students to sew green and repurpose old materials. ... They’ll become independent sewers by learning the skills they need to complete their projects,” she said. Sewing skills are not a prerequisite, and past students’ projects have included a parent making copies of a 3-year-old’s stuffed bunny, as well as a younger student taking private lessons to make a dance costume. For your friends and family looking to embrace their performing side, you might consider Paul Engel’s course, “Sing the Best of Broadway.” Held at the Stern Fireside Room through the city of Palo Alto, the sing-along class provides a fun survey of classic show tunes. Engel said that the class was well suited to show-tunes fans and older men, who learn to express their emotions through music. He noted, though, that with a cappella coming back and music education funding cut, younger people might enjoy the class. You might consider matching the gift of classes with your friend, relative or coworker in a more creative way, Engel noted. “My class would give younger people a sense of forgotten music history, and a sense of what great songs they really were.” N Editorial Intern Sarah Trauben can be e-mailed at strauben@ paweekly.com.

OBITUARY ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Palo Alto Weekly publishes obituaries about people who lived in, or played a prominent role in, the community. Obituaries are written by staff writers, based on information provided by mortuaries and/or family members. Due to space limits and other reasons, we may not include all the information a family wishes. Some families choose to write their own memorial announcements, then purchase space to publish it. The Palo Alto Weekly handles funeral announcements for a small fee based on length of text. Photos may also be included. For information call 326-8210, ext 6596 (Blanca) or email byoc@paweekly.com
