Palo Alto races against the clock on infrastructure fixes City Council to consider next steps for 2014 ballot measure on Oct. 28 by Gennady Sheyner


hen Palo Alto officials began their journey nearly three years ago to refresh the city’s aged infrastructure, their expansive wish list included an upgraded Cubberley Community Center, street repairs and a host of bike improvements, including a new bike bridge over

U.S. Highway 101. The City Council’s plan, at the time, was to ask city voters to approve a bond in 2014 that would fund many of these improvements. On Oct. 28, when the City Council convenes to consider its next steps, the infrastructure outlook they will be looking at will be starkly differ-

ent than it did at the starting line. The city’s Cubberley lease with the Palo Alto Unified School District remains up in the air, making its inclusion in a bond measure unlikely; the cost of the new bike bridge has been largely covered by regional grants, and the new police building’s future remains loosely tied to Jay Paul Company’s proposed but not approved office development on Page Mill Road. At the same time, the city has more than doubled its expenditure

on fixing up cracked streets and sidewalks, addressing one of the major problems identified by the specially appointed Infrastructure Blue Ribbon Commission in 2011. Though many of these changes are positive developments, they have also created a problem for the council, which now finds itself quickly modifying its 2014 plans to keep up with political realities. Rather than preparing for a broad bond campaign of the sort that the city undertook in 2008 to

renovate local libraries, the city is still trying to figure out what exactly it wants to do. Despite more than a year of staff analysis, eight meetings of the council’s specially appointed committee and detailed polling, the city remains far from certain about what measure, if any, the voters will see next year. Rather than gelling into place, the plan for the 2014 election remains as uncertain as before. ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£Ó®


Stanford sued over worker’s death Man crushed between garbage truck and Dumpster by Eric Van Susteren

T 6iÀœ˜ˆV>Ê7iLiÀ

There’s currently no sidewalk along West Bayshore Road, where cars travel fast and people who walk and bike have to brush up against shrubbery and trees.


Residents ask for safer West Bayshore Road Group wants Palo Alto to use developer’s penalty to fund bike lane or sidewalk by Sue Dremann


ore than 40 Palo Alto residents are petitioning the city to add a bike lane or sidewalk along a dangerous stretch of West Bayshore Road. The residents have asked the Palo Alto City Council to use a $94,200 penalty levied against the developer of Edgewood Shopping Center to pay for the improvements. City Council members voted on Oct. 7 to fine developer Sand Hill Property for demolishing a historic commercial Eichler building at the shopping center along Embarcadero Road. The building was to be moved to another location on the prop-

erty and renovated, but it was inadvertently destroyed. Sand Hill will rebuild the structure with new materials and will pay the fine. Palo Alto residents and members of Woodland Creek Homeowners Association in East Palo Alto said using the money for the sidewalk or bike lane would make West Bayshore safer and would be a benefit to the public. The winding freeway frontage road between Channing Avenue and the San Francisquito Creek Bridge does not have a sidewalk. Lined with trees and shrubbery, it has blind curves that pose hazards for motorists,

pedestrians and bicyclists, residents said. The bike lane or sidewalk is identified as a priority in the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, East Palo Alto resident Heather Rosmarin stated in a letter to the council. The petition, which was submitted to the city on Oct. 7, was signed by residents with addresses throughout town. Liz Carson, a Palo Alto resident who lives near the shopping center, said she is concerned about the traffic being generated by the new market, ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iʣή

he mother of a sanitation worker who was killed at Stanford University while loading trash into his garbage truck last year is suing Stanford University and fraternity Phi Kappa Psi for negligence. Jonathan Dillon Marino, an employee of Peninsula Sanitary Services, was loading the oncampus fraternity’s Dumpster onto his garbage truck on March 9 when he was crushed between the Dumpster and the truck. The lawsuit contends that the layout of the garbage area at the fraternity house was unsafe and contributed to Marino’s death, according to Nikolaus W. Reed, attorney for Marino’s mother, Denise De Lappe. Reed said the garbage area was positioned in such a way that it couldn’t be accessed by truck and was particularly dangerous because of the incline that led up to it. The combination of these two factors caused Marino to lose control of the Dumpster, which he chased after by jumping out of the truck, Reed said. The truck then began to roll downhill, crushing Marino against the Dumpster, which had hit a parked car parked on the side of Santa Ynez Street. After hitting Marino, the truck continued down the hill across an intersection. “We’re pursuing the fraternity and Stanford who owned it for keeping the property in an unsafe condition,” Reed said. “Our position is that it should have arranged the Dumpster and parking area without having a steep incline that was a danger to him.” Thomas Ott, fleet manager

and safety officer for Peninsula Sanitary Services, said that investigations by his company, the California Highway Patrol and a local dealer that sells the truck determined that the accident was the result of operator error. As Marino noticed that the Dumpster was rolling toward a car and jumped out of the truck to grab it, he neglected to engage his parking brake, Ott said. “He was a good young man — very conscientious — and that’s unfortunately part of the reason the accident happened: He was going to stop the Dumpster from hitting that car,” he said. “It was just an unfortunate accident. He did the right thing but unfortunately didn’t follow the right procedure.” There were no witnesses to the accident, he said. Marino was transported for treatment to Stanford Hospital, where he stayed for weeks. Ott said he hadn’t been optimistic about Marino’s recovery until doctors began weaning him off his sedation medicine. “I rubbed his forearm and said, ‘I’ve got to go to work now,’ and he reached across his body with his right hand and shook my hand,” he said. “I thought he was going to make it, but when I went back that afternoon, they were trying to revive him.” Marino died the next morning after being taken off life support. Ott said that this is the first accident resulting in serious injury in his 20 years of experience with the company. “He was part of our family. We ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iʙ®

Around Town

Stanford may be the most cost efficient, it’s picky — only 7 percent of applicants make it into the school — and even if the return on investment is the highest, the $117,960 in tuition may be hard to stomach. In case the stakes (or returns) weren’t high enough, the university also announced that it would be implementing a threeyear “joint program” with Stanford’s well-regarded Computer Science Department that allows applicants to get an MBA and an M.S. in computer science at the same time. It’s not Stanford’s only joint program. The Computer Science Department offers one other joint degree, a J.D./M.S. with the Stanford Law School.

THE HYPOCRITICAL OATH? ... For a guy who made his multibillion-dollar fortune getting people to share some of their most intimate details online, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg sure is concerned about his own privacy. Zuckerberg raised more than a few eyebrows at the beginning of the month when the Silicon Valley Business Journal reported that he had spent more than $30 million to buy three of the four houses that border his Crescent Park home — an outrageous sum even by Palo Alto standards. Some speculated that he would use property ownership to construct a massive compound to live in, but fears of a Palo Alto Xanadu were allayed last week, when an unnamed source close to the deals told the Mercury News that Zuckerberg had bought the properties to lease them back to the families who live there already. It turns out that a developer who bought a next-door house was going to build a huge home and market it as “the house next to Mark Zuckerberg,” according to the mystery source. By owning the properties near his house, Zuckerberg can control how they’re bought and how they’re marketed. For that, he’s gotten plenty of ribbing in the media, who point out the irony that Facebook this month announced that users could not shield themselves from Facebook’s Graph Search, which allows people to search for others based on where their personal information fits. But then again, the famous CEO has been the subject of at least one real-world stalker and had to get a restraining order against the obsessed man.

A-FLU-ENT COMMUNITY ... Palo Altans plan ahead, even when it comes to catching the flu. Palo Alto Medical Foundation announced the number of vaccines it’s administered have shot up, even before flu season starts. It’s calling it a “robust start” and has already administered 25,000 shots in the first two weeks of its clinics. Medical teams are poking 2,700 people with needles every day around the Bay Area. “Numbers of people getting the vaccine at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation may be up slightly, possibly related to the harsh flu season we had last year as well as interest in the new quadrivalent flu vaccines” (which protect against four flu strains), said Dr. Charles Weiss, chair of PAMF’s infectiousdiseases committee. “We are not anticipating any shortage of supply and will continue to receive shipments of vaccine throughout the flu season.”

THE BOTTOM LINE ... A pair of announcements related to Stanford’s Graduate School of Business is drawing some attention to the brainy business building. A Forbes report found that Stanford MBA holders have the highest return on investment for their degree nationwide. The report found that Stanford MBAs see an average five-year financial gain of $99,700 from their degree, giving them a median salary of $221,000 when they were five years out. Harvard, the previous winner, has fallen to No. 3 with an average five-year return on investment of $79,600. Ready to sign up? Not so fast. Although

PATCH DISPATCHED? ... The Palo Alto forecast for AOL’s Patch just got a bit patchier. The news company’s CEO Bud Rosenthal released a memo saying Patch will no longer staff bureaus outside its 14 “designated market areas” — Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Hartford, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington D.C. Unstaffed Patches will no longer have editors, Rosenthal wrote. But users of Patch, which brands itself as a platform for “communityspecific news” will “continue to receive daily posts from our central publishing team.” N


Planned Stanford housing means enrollment bump for schools


ith nearly 250 new units of family-friendly Stanford University housing on the horizon, Palo Alto school officials are puzzling over where to put the new kids come 2016, when people start moving in. One hundred eighty of the new units will be owner-occupied housing in upper College Terrace in the vicinity of the former Facebook headquarters, where California Avenue dead-ends into Amherst Street. Another 70 units, which will be for rent, will face El Camino Real just south of California Avenue, between the Wells Fargo Bank and Bank of America buildings. Stanford and school district officials met last week to discuss the planned developments, with school officials straining to predict how many new students the housing will generate. With Escondido Elementary School already the district’s second-largest elementary at 583 students, Superintendent Kevin Skelly seemed inclined to project the new enrollment for Nixon Elementary School (current enrollment 482), Terman Middle School and Gunn High School. But all agreed it’s a high priority to determine school boundaries for the new developments

by Chris Kenrick before groundbreaking occurs next year. “As soon as someone knows they’re living someplace they’re in our attendance office (trying to register their children),” Skelly said. The new housing in upper College Terrace will be a mixture of condominiums (112) and singlefamily houses (68), ranging from two-bedroom condos at 1,080 square feet to four- and a few fivebedroom houses of up to 2,700 square feet. The houses will average 2,150 to 2,200 square feet. Skelly asked Stanford officials to improve pedestrian and bicycle access to Nixon from upper College Terrace by seeking improvements to a steep, winding path that now links the area with Peter Coutts Road. “I can’t see any scenario where access to Peter Coutts isn’t important,” he said. Stanford hopes to use the new housing to help recruit faculty members. Sales will be restricted to faculty, with the office of Provost John Etchemendy determining which categories of faculty are eligible. “It’s hoped that (the new housing units) will help with recruitment but also with retention, and add to the overall supply,” said

Christopher Wuthmann, associate director of design and construction for Stanford’s real estate operations. The El Camino housing, on the other hand, will be rental units available to members of the general public whose salaries fall within low-income guidelines. There will be 24 each of oneand two-bedroom units and 22 three-bedroom units. Qualifying income levels were not specified and vary according to the program. They are sometimes expressed as up to 60 percent of Santa Clara County median income, which was $112,400 for a family of four as of May 2011. Sixty percent would be $67,440. Though Stanford plans to build the El Camino units using tax-advantaged financing available for low-income housing, the building ultimately will be managed by an affordable development company “to make sure people are qualified and that we’re renting to the right people,” Wuthmann said. Stanford currently generates 681 K-12 students in the Palo Alto school district, up from 603 in 2009-10. The increase is traced to recent Stanford housing developments such as Olmsted Terrace, off of Stanford Avenue adjacent to Escondido Village.


University, school officials ponder likely impact of family-friendly units

Nearly 250 units of new Stanford University housing are planned, including 180 in upper College Terrace and another 70 units facing El Camino Real. Both projects are expected to boost enrollment in local schools. The university and the school School District Liaison Commitdistrict have a long history of co- tee meeting, officials discussed operation, with five local schools potential effects of the Lucile located on land once owned by Packard Children’s Hospital exStanford. pansion on enrollment at the disThey are Palo Alto High trict-run Hospital School as well School, Gunn High School, Es- as use of the Paly parking lot for condido, Nixon and Menlo Park’s Stanford football games.

Federal budget cuts raise affordable-housing rents Section 8 residents in Palo Alto feel the impact of sequester cuts


n July, a Palo Alto single mother of two who lives in affordable housing received a letter alerting her that the rent for her three-bedroom apartment was going to be increased from $71 per month to $808 as of Sept. 1. “I was thinking, ‘I need to do something,’” she said recently, tearing up as she recalled reading the letter. “And then I feel bad because where are we going to live?” she said, referring to her son and daughter. The mother, who will be referred to as Dolores for purposes of anonymity, lives in Section 8 housing, a federal housing-assistance program that provides vouchers for low-income families, the elderly and disabled. She is one of many Santa Clara County residents who felt the blow of federal sequester cuts that slashed $21 million from the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara’s

Section 8 funding in March. The housing authority, which provides affordable housing for more than 16,500 households through the federal Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program, came up with $6 million, leaving a $15 million gap to cover. Faced with the choice of raising rents or putting up to 1,000 residents out of their homes, the county agency chose the former, implementing rent hikes and other cost-saving changes to the housing program. As of Sept. 1, Section 8 residents are required to pay 35 percent of their gross monthly income towards rent, up from an average of approximately 27 percent, according to the county housing authority. Certain allowances that had previously been taken into account when calculating a resident’s rent, such as utilities and deductions for expenses like child care or health insurance, were eliminated.

The county housing authority also changed its voucher policy, adopting the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s minimum standard for how many bedrooms a Section 8 family can qualify for. Previously, a three-person family qualified for a three-bedroom unit. As of Sept. 1, the head of the household (including spouse or partner) receives one room, plus one additional room for every two people, regardless of age or gender. Georgina Mascarenhas, director of property management for the Palo Alto Housing Authority, said she believes “the greatest impact is to residents who the housing authority has determined actually qualify for a smaller unit size.” Dolores is one of those residents. Her options were minimal: Relocate, pay the different between the two rents or transfer to a smaller unit, provided there was one available (the Palo Alto


by Elena Kadvany

Nancy Medina sips her coffee while relaxing in her Palo Alto studio apartment, which she can afford to rent due to a federal Section 8 housing subsidy. Housing Corporation has long wait lists for all unit sizes, enough applicants to fill vacancies for the next five to seven years, Mascarenhas said, and waiting lists for Section 8 sites only open every five to seven years). Relocating is especially problematic for families with children who are in local schools, Mascarenhas said. Both of Dolores’ children attend high school in Palo Alto. Candice Gonzalez, the Palo Alto Housing Corporation’s executive director, said that residents forced to move also might try to

find housing at specific low-income housing complexes, which have been funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). That option is in contrast to using a housing voucher that can be transferable from apartment to apartment. With so-called “project-based” housing complexes, residents are only entitled to the assistance while they live at the specific property; the subsidy remains with that property and is provided to residents who live there, Mas­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£ä)

A ladder for workers on the bottom rung Stipends open community college door for local laborers, housekeepers by Chris Kenrick


midcareer “failure” for a Palo Alto woman sparked a new trajectory that’s helping local housekeepers, gardeners, waiters and home health aides to go to community college. Elizabeth Weal left the hightech world in her 40s to get a teaching credential, but “was not a success” as a fifth-grade teacher at Garfield Elementary School in Menlo Park. However she quickly found a niche at a school across the street — the Sequoia Adult School — teaching evening classes in English as a Second Language. “These were amazing people, and I got this incredible sense that this is where I belonged,” Weal said in an interview this week. “It was totally the opposite of the fifth graders, who were the children of these people I was enamored with.” Weal fell in love with the work and with her students. Ultimately, she wrote and self-published a series of simple, basic English grammar and writing textbooks after realizing her students needed guidance in their native Spanish and nothing was to be had. Friendships with her students — nearly all of them low-wage workers — then led her to a new step: raising funds to help them take classes in community college. This fall, 69 of them are enrolled at Canada College with small stipends from her recently registered nonprofit, Sequoia Adult School Scholars. “These are people who really have no extra money,” she said. “My idea was that if we can make this free, people would go.” Since most of the students have day jobs, they’re not going to school full-time, just taking a class or two. Weal hopes some of them will complete the ESL



While teaching English as a Second Language, Elizabeth Weal wrote and self-published English grammar textbooks written in Spanish. Now she offers scholarships so her students can attend community college. sequence and work toward a certificate. “One guy is a construction worker going for a certificate in kitchen and bath design,” Weal said. “Another works at the counter at The Cheesecake Factory and wants to be a preschool teacher.” Weal recalled taking her Sequoia ESL students on a field trip to Canada College: “It was a gorgeous campus, and people were walking around with their mouths open — ‘I can go here? This is for me?’ It was a real eye-opening experience.” A grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation provides a part-time adviser at the adult school to help students apply for community college, and Weal’s group offers $64-a-month bus passes or parking passes and help with textbooks. East Palo Alto resident Nely Perez worked full time — often seven days a week — in a Burlingame car wash in her 12 years since arriving from Mexico,

where she was a secretary in a law office. While working 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the car wash, Perez said, “I didn’t have time to study. I never attended school, but in January I said, ‘No, I need to prepare. I need to go to school. I like to study.’” Her husband, a construction worker, encouraged her and, with a parking pass and textbooks paid for by Sequoia Adult School Scholars, Perez is taking three English classes at Canada. She wants to be able to help her 8-year-old daughter with her homework. “The only thing I need is somebody with whom I can speak English because at home everybody speaks Spanish,” Perez said. After speaking English all day at work and school, her husband and daughter prefer to speak Spanish at home, she said. Weal continues to sell her $10 textbooks — 11,000 of them so far — through and out of her garage, and she’s no longer losing money. “Obviously I’m not supporting myself in Palo Alto with these books, but more and more the sales are going up,” she said. “I am making money — not a lot of money.” She’s found a market in neighborhood organizations, churches and groups with names like Adelante Mujeres (Forward Women), where ESL classes are taught. “People send in money orders for a book,” she said. “One guy from East Palo Alto came to my house with cash for a book.” Weal stores 1,500 books in her garage and Amazon prints them on demand, which she calls “a pretty unsexy way to print books. “My husband says, ‘Aren’t you sick of packing boxes of books?’ and I say ‘No, I’m incredibly happy to do this.’ “It’s great to be making books that make a difference.” N Staff Writer Chris Kenrick can be emailed at ckenrick@

Fire department defends pancake-breakfast alert Helicopter landing prompted emergency notice, Palo Alto chief says


hen 27,000 Palo Alto residents received an emergency alert last week telling them about an upcoming fire department pancake breakfast, some questioned whether the alert system should be used to promote events. The Palo Alto Fire Department sent the AlertSCC message on Friday, Oct. 11, about the next day’s pancake breakfast in Rinconada Park, which raised money for Project Safety Net, the group aimed at fostering teenagers’ well-being. The text message read: “AlertSCC: Palo Alto Firefighters will be hosting a Community Pancake Breakfast Saturday October 12th, please find us on Facebook and Twitter for more details.” A minute later, recorded phone messages went out. Several residents voiced their disapproval on Palo Alto Online’s Town Square: “I was at a meeting when this occurred, and several phones rang. I opened mine thinking it was an emergency. If this continues, we will start ignoring the messages, and like the boy who called wolf, we won’t know when there is a real emergency,” a resident wrote. “Maybe them pancakes are really, really good?” quipped another. The issue has caused Fire Chief Eric Nickel to review procedures, he said. “One of our concerns was that we were landing a helicopter at Walter Hays Elementary School in a residential neighborhood on a Saturday. We were concerned that we would get lots of calls to 911 that would jam up the lines. We thought that we would do the alert on Friday to not wake people up,” he said. In the past when helicopters or fire trucks were used for events or trainings and alerts did not go out,

by Sue Dremann 911 lines did get jammed by curious callers, he said. But this time, there were no calls to 911 asking about the helicopter. “It’s the first time that has occurred,” he said. The 27,000 notifications generated 13 complaints, he said. Nickel said he understands why

sending it out, since there are two separate databases for AlertSCC: one for local events and emergencies, and a separate “reverse 911” database that is restricted to emergencies only. But messages from both databases arrive with the header AlertSCC, making it impossible for people to distinguish between the two. The city’s public-safety leaders and the City Manager’s office have reviewed the procedure. “We have learned there are other technologies to use for event notification, such as Facebook, Twitter and Nixel. We had that conversation, and if we did this tomorrow, we would use those other community-communications technologies,” Nickel said. The pancake breakfast, with food prepared by Facebook chefs, was a success, Nickel said. More than 1,000 people attended, he said, including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

‘We have learned there are other technologies to use for event notification, such as Facebook, Twitter and Nixel.’ —Eric Nickel, fire chief people thought the message was an inappropriate use of the system. If he had it to do over again, the alert would state in the opening sentence that a helicopter would be landing at the site, he said. Some residents said the alert came across as a promotional announcement, but Nickel pointed out there was nothing wrong with

THE RISK OF SELLING WITHOUT A REAL ESTATE PRO When real estate markets are on the upswing and demand is high, sellers may wonder if they should sell their home by themselves in order to avoid paying a realtor commission. Following are some of the many considerations that you should take into account before you decide to sell your own home. 1. Pricing your home. Pricing a home is an important component of the selling process. A connected local agent has information that is not yet available to the public and has the expertise to avoid pricing mistakes. According to the National Association of Realtors, in 2012 homes sold using an agent sold for 20% more than those sold by the owner. 2. Marketing your home. Having a marketing plan and properly executing that plan is more crucial than ever to get the best price when selling a home. An agent will advise you on what needs to be done to make your home appeal to the broadest group of potential buyers and maximize the sale price.

Statistics show that 90 percent of homebuyers used the Internet during their home search in 2012. Without a savvy listing agent, your property will not appear on the top sites where buyers search, thereby greatly limiting your pool of potential buyers. 3. Handling the transaction. A good agent knows how to navigate the legal requirements and other issues related to selling a home and help protect you from being sued after the deal closes. The agent can also help you evaluate the offers that you receive, negotiate the terms of the contract and make sure that the transaction stays on track until escrow closes. 4. Time commitment. Sellers with busy schedules may be hard pressed to find the time needed to respond to buyer inquiries effectively. A dedicated professional agent has the ability to timely respond to potential buyers. Selling a home is a big undertaking. Homeowners should fully investigate and understand what it is involved before deciding to sell their home on their own.

carenhas explained. Residents using housing vouchers would have to give them up in order to live in a project-complex. “This definitely displays the need for project-based subsidy affordable housing in Palo Alto,� Gonzalez said. Dolores and her children were lucky; a resident living in a twobedroom unit had recently given notice to vacate, so Dolores’ request to transfer to the smaller unit with cheaper rent was quickly approved. She’s now paying $134 per month and gave her son and daughter the bedrooms. She said she either sleeps on a mattress in a small living area — propped against a wall during the day — or with her daughter. Currently unemployed due to the need to care for her daughter, who has ongoing medical problems, her only source of income is child support, so Dolores applied for financial assistance from InnVision Shelter Network, a Bay Area organization that provides housing services and support, and other organizations that offer onetime emergency assistance funds to help cover the unpaid balance from her previous unit. She met with a job coach this week with the goal of finding a job. If the two-bedroom unit hadn’t opened up, what would she have done? “I don’t want to think about it because I don’t know,� she said. There are 291 residents in Palo Alto Housing Corporation units receiving Section 8 housing vouchers, 39 of which were affected by the federal sequester-induced cuts made this spring, Mascarenhas said. Rent hikes ranged from $6, the lowest, to $877. Nancy Medina, who lives alone in a studio in the Palo Alto Housing Corporation’s Tree House Apartments on West Charleston Road, is toward the lower end of that range. Her rent, which was $26 when she moved in two years ago, went up $30 on Sept. 1. “It did go up at the time I wasn’t working, so either way, it would have been a lot for me,� she said. “But now I have a job at least to keep me going and help out with PG&E, rent, telephone — which is important. “It’s a blessing,� she said of her Tree House studio. “It has been really a blessing for me.� Medina is able to get to her job as a caregiver in Hillsborough thanks to a Tree House Apartment program, which provides residents a free transportation pass from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. “Every little bit counts,� Medina said. “It really does. I’m just grateful that I’m able to go from point A to point B for work in order to continue paying for my rent or whatever that’s needed in the home.� Federal budget cuts were felt county-wide, with about half (1,125 out of 2,670 units) of 30 developments owned by the county hous-

Upfront ing authority occupied by Section 8 tenants, said Alex Sanchez, the authority’s executive director. However, only 3.6 percent of county residents couldn’t pay their September rent on time — 97 households out of the 2,670 total units, according to the county agency. Twelve of those notices were sent to Section 8 voucher holders, less than 1.1 percent of all properties. As of Oct. 8, six remaining Section 8 households had yet to pay rent. Sanchez said he has been “surprised” by Congress’ lack of consensus on a federal program that has had bipartisan support for years. “It is a major shift,” he said. “I think it’s not necessarily going in the right direction.” In anticipation of more residents not being able to afford higher rent, the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara is in the process of establishing the Sequester Eviction Prevention Program, which would provide emergency financial assistance to households facing eviction as a result of the Section 8 funding cuts. The program is currently in the fundraising phase; the authority itself has contributed $500,000; the County of Santa Clara, $1 million; the City of San Jose, $250,000; and Finally Home (a pool for Sunnyvale and City of Santa Clara funds), $70,000. Dolores and Medina repeatedly stressed their appreciation for af-

fordable housing in costly Palo Alto. Both said they love the area: It’s safe; they like their neighborhoods; there are good schools. “I want to tell you, this program for housing, I think it’s wonderful for everybody that really needs

it,” Dolores said. “It’s helping me to help my family. I bless God for it because ... for a single mother, it’s very hard to pay rent.” N Editorial Assistant Elena Kadvany can be emailed at

Infrastructure ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ÊvÀœ“Ê«>}iÊx®

After eight meetings spanning from March to Oct. 1, the four-member council committee charged with recommending a possible ballot measure instead recommended more polling and further exploration of various revenue options. Some council members, including Vice Mayor Nancy Shepherd, remain enthusiastic about a 2014 bond to fund the needed publicsafety improvements, but they also recognize that they are now racing against the clock. “We’re beginning to run out of time for the November 2014 ballot,” Councilman Larry Klein said at the Oct. 1 meeting, after the committee authorized more polls and analysis. Specifically, the city is now looking at five different options for raising revenues for infrastructure, most of which were not on the radar two years ago: an assessment fee to pay for new parking garages, through the creation of Mello-Roos districts; a oneeighth-cent sales-tax increase; raising the hotel tax by either 2 or 3 percent; a general-obligation bond to pay for public-safety facilities; and a general-obligation bond to pay for transportation improvements. Pending the council’s approval on Oct. 28, staff and the city’s polling company will also consider how voters would react to these revenue-raising measures in the context of city’s revision of utility-users-tax methodology. The polling will be conducted in November and December, after which time the council is expected to decide whether or not to pursue a 2014 infrastructure measure. The biggest wildcard in the conversation remains the police building. In 2011, the citizens committee argued that the project has been “dangerously deferred” and recommended floating a bond to pay for it “as soon as possible.” But in June, the council learned that such a vote would be far from a slam dunk. According to a poll commissioned by the council, only 60 percent of the respondents to the poll gave high marks to “providing police officers with the facilities and resources needed to investigate and prosecute crimes committed in our community” and only 52 percent said they would support spending “$57 million to buy land and construct the public-safety building,” well short of the needed two-thirds threshold needed (by contrast, things like bike improvements and fire-station upgrades received more than 70 percent support). Another option for paying for the new police station also now looks shakier than it once did. The proposal by Jay Paul to build a new police building for the city in exchange for permission to construct 311,000 square feet of office space at 395 Page Mill Road has recently encountered a few technical and ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£{®

Jim Clark, former Stanford University professor and founder of several well-known Silicon Valley companies, has donated $60 million to support interdisciplinary research at Stanford. Clark announced the donation earlier this month at an opportune time and location: the 10th anniversary of the James H. Clark Center for Biomedical Engineering and Sciences, a building he funded with a $90 million gift in 1999. Bio-X, a cross-disciplinary research initiative that focuses on biology and medicine, is housed within the Clark Center. Clark’s donation also coincided with another Bio-X achievement. The Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to Michael Levitt, a Bio-X faculty member and professor in structural biology, on the morning of Clark’s announcement. Levitt was recognized for his interdisciplinary work, combining computer science, biology and quantum physics to model the chemical processes of molecules. Clark comes from a physics and computer science background and taught electrical engineering at Stanford in the early 1980s. In 1982, he founded Silicon Graphics, which manufactures highperformance computing solutions. He went on to found Netscape in the early 1990s and then Healtheon, an attempt to streamline the U.S. Health care system, and MyCFO, a wealth-management company for wealthy Silicon Valley greats. — Elena Kadvany

Family says teacher breached son’s privacy A family has sued the Palo Alto school district, saying they suffered embarrassment, humiliation, medical issues and financial cost after a teacher allegedly disclosed private medical information about the family’s son. In a complaint filed in September in U.S. District Court, James and Jennifer Chadam are seeking unspecified damages as well as recoupment of attorneys’ fees from their October 2012 lawsuit against the district, which was settled in their favor. In the new lawsuit, the family contends that the breach led to a painful ordeal. The family had sued last year to block their son’s removal from Jordan Middle School after district officials ordered his transfer, saying his genetic condition, which makes him at risk for cystic fibrosis, posed a threat to Jordan students who have cystic fibrosis. In a November 2012 settlement, the Chadams’ son was permitted to stay at Jordan provided protocols to avoid cross-infection among cystic-fibrosis patients are followed. The Chadams maintained their son had never been clinically diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and that his genetic condition posed no threat of cross-infection to students with the disease. In the new lawsuit, the Chadams say the school district violated the federal right to privacy and the Americans with Disabilities Act when one of their son’s teachers allegedly passed along private health information about him to another family in September 2012. The Chadams had disclosed the information in school health forms filed the month before, shortly after arriving in Palo Alto from their previous residence in Singapore. The privacy breach led to a determination by the district a week later that the Chadam boy must transfer to Terman Middle School, 3.5 miles from their home, the new lawsuit said. School district representatives declined to comment on this claim. — Chris Kenrick

A clerk at the 7-Eleven in Midtown Palo Alto was held up at gunpoint and punched in the face early Tuesday morning by three men wearing masks. The robbers entered the store at around 2:20 a.m., pointed a rifle or shotgun at the clerk and demanded money, according to police. The clerk complied and gave the men the money from the register. One of them then punched the clerk in the face and took his wallet while the other two stole miscellaneous items from the store before fleeing on foot, police stated. Officers responding to the scene at 708 Colorado Ave. were unable to locate the robbers. The man bearing a long-barrel firearm was about 270 pounds and 6-foot-3-inches tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black gloves and a white mask. The second suspect was about 180 pounds and 5-foot-11-inches tall and wore a black hooded sweatshirt with stripes on the shoulders and sleeves, black pants, black gloves and a white mask.

which will only increase as more stores are opened. “My grandkids live at that condo (Woodland Creek) and I don’t like my grandkids riding their bikes in the street. My concern is that there is not enough parking at the condos, and a lot of people park along West Bayshore. People have to walk out into the street. It’s going to kill some kid, and then people will pay attention. It seems more logical to me to build a sidewalk than to have no parking from 2 to 5 a.m. It’s much more of a safety issue to me. It’s keeping the little ones safe,” she said. The Woodland Creek Homeowners Association also sent a letter in support of the improvements on Oct. 1. The association represents East Palo Alto residents living in 90 single-family homes about 0.2 miles north of the shopping center. Residents raised safety concerns about West Bayshore during the environmental review of the Edgewood redevelopment, and they have sent correspondence to the city in the past, noted Brenda Erwin, association president. “West Bayshore Road in Palo Alto is particularly hazardous for children walking or biking to the planned new neighborhood park and other attractions at Edgewood Plaza,” she wrote. Residents of both cities use West Bayshore as a key corridor between University Avenue and Embarcadero Road. The increase of pedestrian and bicycle traffic to and from the shopping center has already exacerbated the risk of collisions with motorists, she said. “Many residents ... have witnessed a number of near collisions between vehicles and pedestrians and bicyclists,” she noted. “There is also a serious risk of motorist-motorist collisions as drivers swerve to avoid pedestrians and bicyclists who are traveling on the road.” Jaime Rodriguez, Palo Alto’s chief transportation official, stated in an email to the Weekly that the sidewalk design and construction cost exceeds $94,000. Staff plans to return to the City Council within 3 months with a more refined construction cost estimate. “We need to explore what other impacts the sidewalk construction may have (drainage, tree removal, etc.) so that an informed decision can be made,” he stated. When the Planning and Transportation Commission discussed the project in September, it re-

political setbacks. In April, the council’s Infrastructure Committee agreed to expedite the review process for the dense new development, with the hope of having a traffic analysis in place by this fall. Instead, planning staff saw some problems with the preliminary traffic analysis, prompting delays. Staff is now working with traffic consultants to refine its methodology and looking at the traffic data associated with San Mateo’s new police station, according to project

planner Jodie Gerhardt. The report now isn’t expected to be completed until December, she said. At the same time, the “planned community” zone that Jay Paul is seeking remains as controversial as ever. The last such zone change that the council approved — to enable a 60-unit apartment complex for low-income seniors and 12 market-rate homes on an orchard site at Maybell and Clemo avenues — sparked a referendum petition that voters will decide upon on Nov. 5. For many opponents of this project, the fight is as much a referendum on “planned communities” in general. On Oct. 1, Shepherd

suggested that given the current political climate, the city should take another poll to gauge public opinion on the police building and stressed the need to continue to work toward a 2014 bond. “I think the needle might have changed because of the publicity around Jay Paul and the density in Palo Alto,” Shepherd said when urging a fresh poll for a policebuilding bond. “We’d have better indication about the seriousness I have about having to get this public-safety building built. The council needs to get some direction from the community about how we’re going to do this, whether it’s through a PC or through this (tax increase).” The resurgence of parking as a top issue has also changed the game. While new parking garages didn’t factor into the discussion in 2011 or 2012, the council now sees them as one of the city’s top priorities. At the Oct. 1 meeting, Mayor Greg Scharff observed that parking has become a “really high-profile issue,” with many Professorville residents appealing to him to pursue more parking garages. As a result, the city is looking at creating Mello-Roos assessment districts to fund parking garages. “I think this may have moved,” Scharff said, referring to residents’ willingness to pay for more garages. “Every newspaper article in Palo Alto is talking about parking problems and what we’re going to do about it. I bet the numbers have moved up.” With the clock ticking and so many questions unanswered, the council’s Infrastructure Committee also tossed out another idea: Rather than rushing toward a 2014 bond for the new police building, waiting to see how the Jay Paul project shakes out and, if it falls through, asking the voters to pass a bond in 2016.

Transitions Births, marriages and deaths

Peter Hom Peter Hom, of Palo Alto, died on Oct. 3. He was 82. A Menlo Park native, he received a B.S. in accounting from U.C. Berkeley. After serving in the U.S. Army in the Korean War, he went to law school and received a J.D. from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge Law School. He later married Gloria, who

During his 15-year stint with RCA, various projects involved moves to Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey—areas blasted by brisk Nor’easters. Bill affirmed that he both loved developing new products, and disliked winter. When David Packard of HewlettPackard called in 1960, he moved the family to sunny California. Bill would work for HP for a decade. In 1973 he joined SRI International. He retired from SRI in 1990 as the senior director and vice president of the International Business Consulting Group. In the time between HP and SRI, Bill travelled and consulted, including a position as a volunteer executive helping small companies overseas. Both Marian and Bill were civic minded, Marian as a den mother and president of the Palo Alto PTA, Bill as a member of the Palo Alto Planning Commission and a board member of more than 10 civic organizations including the Kidney Foundation of Northern California, Neighbors Abroad, Kiwanis, Avenidas, and the Cardiac Therapy Foundation. They were an active, engaged pair. Bill’s greatest sorrow in life came in October of 1970, when cancer claimed 47-year-old Marian. He eventually found peace and companionship with one of the couple’s longtime acquaintances, Jane Wilbur. He and Jane married in 1985, and proceeded to travel the world together, setting foot on all seven continents. Bill will be remembered as a loving, supportive father who accepted both of his son’s major life choices and took pride and joy in their successes; for his great sense of humor and generosity; for his delight in grandchildren Trevor and Christina; and for his talent of single-handedly devouring banana splits for dinner. He is survived by wife Jane Wilbur Bloom (nee: Sybil Jane Deskins) of Palo Alto; sons David (Kathi), Richard (Becky), and grandson Trevor, all of Jackson Hole, Wyoming; and granddaughter Christina, presently attending graduate school in New Zealand. Many, many friends, two step-children and two step-grandchildren are also left to mourn his passing. Contributions in his memory may be sent to the Cardiac Therapy Foundation, 4000 Middlefield Road, Suite G8, Palo Alto, CA, 94303-4761 PA I D

Betty Ann Swezey

A. William “Bill” Bloom Long-time Palo Alto resident A. William “Bill” Bloom, retired senior director and vice president of SRI International, died October 7 at the Vi at Palo Alto’s skilled nursing center from complications of a stroke. He was 90. Bill was a blazingly smart intellectual and practical man who knew how to focus on the keys issues necessary to take technology from invention to finished product. He came to Silicon Valley when it was becoming Silicon Valley, playing a role in shaping the world we live in, whether we live in Silicon Valley or not. Bill was born in Providence, Rhode Island, on June 23, 1923, to Manuel Bloom and Esther Sydney Bloom. His father was a high school science teacher who exerted quite an influence on Bill—not only in drawing him to the sciences, but in successfully teaching tolerance for those of different faiths, ethnicity and financial status. Bill grew up in Providence alongside his brother, Benjamin, and sister, Cyrille. He was but six-years-old when the stock market crash of 1929 set off the Great Depression, further shaping his world view. It is not surprising that he became a saver with an eye always on his family’s financial security. His keen intellect surfaced early. Bill graduated from high school at age 16 and the University of Rhode Island three years later. With a degree in chemical engineering in hand, the 19-year-old barely had time to don his interview suit when the United States entered World War II. He served his country in the U.S. Navy, becoming part of the fast diminishing “Greatest Generation.” Bill’s civilian life began as an engineer for RCA in Chicago. There he met Marian Forner, a sparkling young woman from Ohio who held an electrical engineering certificate from Purdue University. Bill broke both the rules and strong convention by marrying within the same corporation and outside of the Jewish faith. The passionate young couple married in 1945 and were blessed with the birth of David in 1948 and Richard in 1952. Juggling the demands of his job and a young family, Bill earned a master’s degree from Stevens Institute of Technology in 1952 and an MBA degree from the Harvard Business School in 1954, while Marian secured a BA degree in history from Brooklyn College.

survives him. They lived in Palo Alto and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. He practiced law for almost 40 years in Santa Clara County, where he was one of the first Chinese attorneys. He was also a fisherman, card player and sports fan. He loved spending time with family and friends, traveling the world, and harvesting the fruit


September 10, 1921 – October 3, 2013 Betty Ann (Bischoff) Swezey, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and a Palo Alto resident for over 65 years, passed peacefully on Oct. 3, 2013, at the age of 92. Born on Sept. 10, 1921, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the child of an immigrant nurse and grocer, her childhood and life values were shaped by the Great Depression, President Roosevelt’s fireside chats, and the inspiration of Eleanor Roosevelt. She attended and graduated from Middletown High School where she was valedictorian, and Cornell University (with tuition made possible by scholarships) where she earned degrees in French and sociology from the College of Arts and Sciences. She was one of two Cornell freshmen to be cited by Mortar Board based on highest cumulative scholastic average. At Cornell she also met her future husband, Charles Lawrence Swezey of Goshen, N.Y., and they married on June 11, 1944. Following Lawrence’s service in the U.S. Army, the couple moved to Palo Alto in 1946, where Lawrence attended Stanford Law School and, except for a short stint in Burbank, Calif., they resided until her death. Betty Ann loved the ocean and changing seasons, holidays, poetry, languages and travel. In one remembrance she wrote about her early childhood living on a farm in Bloomingburg, N.Y. She said, “No doubt my memories are pierced with nostalgia, special nostalgia of childhood looked back upon, but I won’t give up the magic of my memories.” She was an avid doll collector and known for throwing amazing birthday parties and making holidays magical. She took many train trips over the years to visit family and friends across the country, as well as occasional trips (including a cross-Atlantic trip on the QE2) to Europe and Germany to visit relatives. But her greatest love was her family. She was always concerned about whether each was warm enough, had eaten yet, or was doing too much. In addition to raising her own children, she sponsored several foster children, and later doted on her grandchildren. She also never missed the opportunity to vote, often working the polling stations on election days. For the last seven years, she resided at the Sunrise Assisted Living Center in Palo Alto, which along with Patti Yanklowitz and her team at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, the family wishes to thank for loving care. She is survived by her husband of 69 years, Charles Lawrence Swezey, and her nine children and their families: Tim West of Novato, Calif.; Kirk Swezey of Palo Alto; Sean Swezey of Corralitos, Calif.; Blair Swezey of Healdsburg, Calif.; Erin (Dede) Swezey of Seattle, Wash; Adam Swezey of Mountain View, Calif.; Rory Swezey of Palo Alto; Megan Swezey Fogarty of Palo Alto; and Tanya Swezey Stabinsky of Tempe, Ariz.; as well as 21 grandchildren and one greatgrandchild. A celebration of her life will be held at the First Congregational Church of Palo Alto on Tuesday, Dec. 24 at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, gifts of remembrance can be made to Ecumenical Hunger Program, Abilities United, or Adolescent Counseling Services.

Pauline Brown, a resident of Channing House in Palo Alto, passed away at Stanford Hospital on Sept. 16, 2013, two weeks before her 94th birthday. A native Californian, she came to the Bay Area to attend Stanford from which she received both a B.A. and an M.A. Pauline began her lifelong career in education as a primary grades teacher at Addison School in the Palo Alto Unified School District. She moved to Green Gables (now Duveneck) when it opened in 1951 and later taught at Cubberley High School. At this point she left Palo Alto to attend Boston University, from which she received a doctorate in education. Returning to California she was a professor of elementary education at Cal State University in Hayward from which she retired in 1984. In retirement Pauline’s interest in art led her to the Canter Museum where she was an active member of the Committee for Art and served as a docent. She was also an avid reader, world traveler and bridge player. A private memorial gathering was held at Channing House. As she requested, Pauline was interred with her parents at the Santa Maria Cemetery in Santa Maria, California. Arrangements were under the direction of Dudley-Hoffman Mortuary, Crematory and Memory Gardens. (805) 922-8463 PA I D

Melba Card, 99, of Colorado and Palo Alto, passed away surrounded by many of her loving family on Friday, Aug. 2, near her home in Longmont, Colo. Melba was born to the late William and Dora Lowe, March 2, 1914, in Las Animas, Colo. Melba graduated from Las Animas High School in 1932. Melba had a sister, Inez, and brothers: Paul, Walter, Orville, Glenn and Gordon. She married the late William Card and moved to Palo Alto in 1946. Melba continued to live in Palo Alto until she moved to the Bridge Assisted Living in Longmont in 2011. Melba was chief operator for Mountain Bell Telephone Company in Las Animas for 13 years. She was employed by Pacific Bell, later AT&T, as a supervisor for 40 years. Melba was an active member of Sequoia Christian Church in Redwood City, and delighted in caring for children in the church nursery for many years. She belonged to the Eastern Star

in Palo Alto and had received the Rob Morris Award for her special work while in the Palo Alto Chapter.

No on Measure D Zoning changes approved by City Council to enable Maybell senior housing project strike wrong balance and should be overturned


t is never good when election campaigns become so heated and emotional that instead of issues becoming clearer as election day nears, they become more muddled and confused. That is where most voters find themselves today with Measure D, a referendum on whether zoning changes requested by the Palo Alto Housing Corporation, should be adopted so it can construct a four-story, 60-unit affordable-housing apartment complex for seniors. The Weekly has provided extensive coverage on the issue and the disagreements, including a cover story last week, and we encourage readers to review those stories and past editorials for all the details. As we have previously stated, we believe this proposal was mishandled from the start by both the Housing Corporation and the city staff, prompting a neighborhood reaction that at times itself has been misguided and unproductive. And when finally debated under deadline time pressures by a City Council perceived by many as out of touch with its constituents on development issues, the resulting train wreck was almost inevitable. The smart decision for the City Council would have been to rescind its approval when Measure D qualified for the ballot with more than 4,000 signatures back in August. That would have allowed for a fresh start and a chance for a modified proposal that would address the neighborhood’s most legitimate concerns: the dense, market-rate housing. But under time pressure again, this time for getting the measure on the November ballot, the Council never considered alternatives. Unfortunately, there is now so much inflammatory rhetoric and misinformation circulating about this issue that even an informed voter will struggle to get beyond a simple knee-jerk reaction based on their preconceived views on affordable housing, the Housing Corporation and overall development in our city. The opponents have not helped themselves by slinging exaggerated accusations of fraud and deception, or impugning the motives of those in support of the project. Similarly, those supporters who disrespectfully resort to characterizing opponents as mere NIMBYs show they aren’t listening or acknowledging legitimate concerns. There are no villains here. It is possible to be a strong supporter of affordable housing and also believe this project is an overreach. And it is possible to sympathize with the neighbors but believe the need for this type of housing outweighs the problems of higher density development. Peeling away all the acrimony, here are the basic facts, none in dispute: s4HE(OUSING#ORPORATIONHADARAREOPPORTUNITYTOBUYACRESOFLANDNEARTHE corner of Maybell and Clemo avenues, across the street from Briones Park and directly behind the eight-story Tan Apartments on Arastradero Road.

In essence, the Housing Corporation and the City Council opted to have the immediate neighborhood absorb the negative impacts of a dozen homes that exceed allowable density in order to subsidize the development of the apartment building for low-income seniors. If Measure D passes, the City Council’s zoning changes will take effect and the Housing Corporation will be able to proceed with its plans (subject to possible legal challenge by opponents). If Measure D fails, the zoning will remain as it has been, and the Housing Corporation will need to decide whether to revise its concept or sell the entire property, presumably to a development company that would then either create a plan that meets the zoning or make its own attempt to obtain increased density by asking for approval of a planned community (PC) zone. A critical and, oddly, contested question in the campaign is what actually could be developed on the property under the current zoning if Measure D fails. In making its decision to place Measure D on the ballot, the City Council vociferously relied upon city staff assertions that the existing zoning allows for a more intense development than what is proposed by the Housing Corporation. One after another, council members expressed bewilderment that anyone would want that, and it was clearly the basis for the unanimous vote to back the project. Remarkably, however, there remains disagreement on what can or would be built under the current zoning. And given the controversy on this point, the city planning staff could have helped immensely by producing examples of hypothetical plot plans and renderings that supported its conclusions and that could have then been critically evaluated by opponents and the public. No one wants the outcome of this controversy to be the sale of the entire property to a developer who will maximize profits on the site, and we don’t believe that is the likely outcome if Measure D fails. With real estate values soaring since the land was purchased, we see no reason why the single-family homes cannot be developed more in conformance with the CURRENTZONINGANDYIELDMOST IFNOTALL OFTHEMILLIONPROCEEDSTHE(OUSing Corporation says it needs. And if it doesn’t, city housing funds can fund the shortfall. We reject the notion that Measure D is a vote on whether the senior housing project should be developed on the property. The Housing Corporation and the city made a miscalculation and asked for too much out of the market-rate portion of this development, mistakenly viewing it as an easy way to generate funding while only impacting the immediate neighborhood. That part of the project was wrong, is inconsistent with the goals of the Comprehensive Plan and in our opinion can be fixed without jeopardizing the viability of the senior housing. Palo Alto can be proud of its record of providing subsidized affordable housing, and we support and applaud the Housing Corporation’s continuing efforts to expand the supply. But this project missed the mark by overreaching and not meeting the neighborhood’s concerns half-way. There is a still a chance for a win-win with this project, but only through a fresh start after the defeat of Measure D.

Letters Unplanned community Editor, I read the arguments for and against Measure D in the Oct. 4 Weekly with interest. Despite conflicting claims, I’m forming an opinion, although I’m not yet sure which way I will vote. One point I am clear on is that Measure D is about one single project in one single neighborhood. It is not, as Mayor Greg Scharff claims, a referendum on support for affordable housing for

senior residents. If Mayor Scharff and the City Council want to hold a referendum on senior housing, they should draft a city-wide plan to address the issue and present this to voters. Instead, Mr. Scharff confabulates this one project as the solution to a much larger issue. Whether 60 senior units are built after re-zoning, or 41 units without re-zoning, this one project does not address all of Palo Alto’s senior housing needs. I might suggest that a plan for affordable senior housing should be part of Palo Alto’s Comprehen-

sive Plan, but that appears to be a sham document. Rather than a design for the future of Palo Alto, the Comprehensive Plan appears ignored. Instead, Palo Alto’s character seems to be driven on a piecemeal and inconsistent projectby-project basis, with each new project evaluated in isolation and receiving waivers from requirements that are less convenient or less profitable to the developer. Many of these projects receive exemptions using the ironically ­VÂœÂ˜ĂŒÂˆÂ˜Ă•i`ĂŠÂœÂ˜ĂŠÂ˜iĂ?ĂŒĂŠÂŤ>}iÂŽ

Guest Opinion

Catastrophic illness and educational catastrophe by Elijah and Leslie King


alking onto the Ohio campus last winter, Elijah celebrated the realization that his life was merging back toward the journey he had dreamed of and relentlessly pursued. A dream so ordinary for Gunn High School students, but for him, it was like a rainbow that moved out of reach for four years of high school, because of late diagnosed IBD, Crohn’s disease. At that moment, achievement took on a whole new meaning. Without a doubt, the physical and mental health of our children is paramount. And what becomes critical during illness is normalcy and constancy wherever they can be found. Along with family and community, children find normalcy in education. Children yearn to be at school, to be part of the culture of learning, socializing and growing. It is natural that our son’s education became a key part of his ability to see his life beyond his illness. For most of his years at Gunn High School, Elijah suffered unpredictable flares of gut-wrenching pain and debilitating symptoms caused by a severe, chronic disease, eventually diagnosed as Crohn’s disease. This caused repeated, short hospitalizations and went from weeks to months of inability to be at school. Per federal law supporting the rights of disabled students, he had a 504 plan. However, it contained vague suggestions for flexibility, extra time and independent study. And despite

named Planned Community process. This has resulted in Palo Alto becoming an Unplanned Community, with ill-considered and unattractive buildings, while we continue to ignore persistent issues of inadequate parking, congested or neighborhood traffic, and other issue with Palo Alto infrastructure. Mayor Scharff and the City Council appear to support rezoning the Maybell site less based on the merits of the proposed development, than because they lack a plan to address affordable senior housing on a city-wide basis. I am disappointed, although not surprised, since they appear to lack plans to address other infrastructure issues, such as employee and resident parking, traffic, affordable housing, and other problems which face our community.

help from devoted individuals, the general implementation was fragmented. He had barely five hours a week of low-quality academic support, and no one from Gunn or the Palo Alto school district was coordinating his complex situation. Sadly, we know from talking to teachers and parents of sick children that our son is not alone in this experience in the district. It was left to our family to coordinate and advocate as if we were the first family to face this challenge. Although we have experience in advocating for healthcare and education, nothing prepared us for this overwhelming situation. We were focused on Elijah’s medical crises, education and working full-time jobs. We naturally looked to Gunn for guidance, resources and advocacy. After three years of fragmented support, Elijah felt it was time for him to speak directly to the Gunn administration. In Elijah’s own words: “Sitting in the Gunn principal’s office, 2012, the summer before what was supposed to be my senior year, I felt more lost than ever. For 30 minutes the principal politely listened as my mom and I listed the problems and obstacles to my education. “We reminded her that federal law and my 504 entitled me to educational services that would provide me with an equitable education. We asked for her help to improve the services from Gunn and keep me on track to graduate with my friends. I fully expected the principal to help me, advocate for me, take an interest and ask the district for increased help. “This help could start with improving the quality and quantity of home-based instruction from five hours to 10 hours. We asked that the math software program be replaced with current, reliable software with expla-

nations. We asked for funds to help pay for a private physics class already pre-approved by the Gunn physics coordinator. “After all of this, she calmly explained that if I wanted all of these things then I should look into “alternatives” to Gunn. She stated that if a kid needs more help then they should be on campus and in the classroom. The fact that I was chronically ill and unable to attend class on a regular schedule was given little consideration. She made it clear that the district had nothing different from the past three years to offer me. My hopes to share the graduation stage with my friends disappeared.” Gratefully, Chris Kenrick’s recent Weekly article (“Arduous educational journey”), shed light on this painful journey. In the article, the PAUSD public-relations response simply listed the options they provide, but did not address the quality of services, outcomes or Elijah’s personal experience. We invite the district to meet with us and hear our full story. Because education of the chronically ill is a complex issue, it cannot be fully covered in this 1,000-word opinion piece. Therefore, our focus is to ask the district to learn from experience and improve its services to its medically fragile population. Being a leader in education, the Palo Alto district could utilize its ample financial, medical and academic resources to do the following and much more: s(IREACOORDINATORTOCREATEANINTEGRATED program charged with designing and implementing individualized educational plans for each of its medically fragile students. s 0ARENTS WHO DESPERATELY NEED SOMEone with knowledge of the system and the power to implement solutions would have someone to talk to and guide them.

plication? Not an issue that will get many of us to the polls this Nov. 5. But it should! This is a battle for what Palo Alto will become, a fully urban city or a more suburban residential community. Already our office space to homes ratio is one of the highest in the country, causing traffic and parking issues everywhere. Our elected officials need to ask themselves: Must we rezone? What if instead we gave our zoning teeth? Measure D is a moral issue. At its heart it’s dealing with a Tragedy of the Commons. Our public infrastructure — our streets, our schools, our green spaces, our safety and our beauty is being sold little by little to developers willing to pay their way out of building restrictions. Chipped away, project by project, the corrupting influence of big money is destroying our common resources. These scarce common benefits need to be protected by reasonable rules that apply to all — the traditional role of government. The good news is we have those rules in the Comprehensive Plan. We as citizens must push back against the greed and insist the rules be followed. Vote Against Measure D. After the election, add your voice to the chorus calling for a moratorium on PC projects, regard-

less of the bribe offered to tempt us to trade away our common interests. The next project may be in your neighborhood. We need to stand together! Tom DuBois South Court, Palo Alto

public servants to live in our community. PC zoning is meant to ease development restrictions in exchange for intrinsic public benefits. Low-income senior housing qualifies as a public benefit. That’s one reason why zoning for the Maybell project was unanimously approved by the City Council after a nine-month review. The PC process actually worked here. No on D advocates want the neighborhood to stay physically the same. They don’t care who lives here. They don’t have a plan for making Palo Alto affordable. Vote Yes on Measure D. Monica McHenney Los Robles Avenue, Palo Alto

Maybell’s traffic impact Editor, For anyone considering voting yes, I suggest you drive or walk Maybell from El Camino to Coulombe. Be aware that this is a route to at least four schools to which kids walk and bike. Arastradero is also a traffic nightmare. Ruth Kaufman Glenbrook Drive, Palo Alto

Zoning worked; vote Yes Editor, Are NIMBYs driving the No on Measure D campaign? Scott Herhold (San Jose Mercury News, 10/13/13) thinks so. NIMBYism keeps Palo Alto “safe for millionaires.” Is this the community we want? Market forces have created wealth for homeowners. Market forces have pushed out those whose value to the community must be measured in other ways. I want teachers, seniors and

Help seniors stay Editor, Opponents of Measure D try to confuse the public by claiming that the measure is not about needed housing, but rather fighting bad ABAG requirements and plannedcommunity zonings (PCs).

bell zoning has benefits that are clear, enforceable and essential; namely, (1) It will provide badly needed affordable senior housing that requires this rezoning and can’t be built elsewhere. (2) It will have less impact on the neighborhood than the current zoning. On point (1), opponents magically assert, without any knowledge or experience with affordable housing, that such senior housing could be built either at this location under the current zoning or somewhere else. However, the Housing Corporation is composed of intelligent, dedicated people who have developed expertise in the difficult financing requirements for affordable housing and know from experience that no other suitable sites currently exist and that affordable housing can’t be on the Maybell site without the

PC zoning. On point (2), the City’s website (search Frequently Asked Questions — Maybell) notes, as two of several examples, that traffic on Maybell is nonexistent outside of commute hours, and those few seniors who do drive can easily avoid those times. The PC zoning would also leave no driveways onto Maybell, whereas the current zoning would allow 34-46 regular homes, most if not all containing commuters, including 8-10 with driveways onto Maybell. Help our seniors remain in the city. Vote YES on Measure D. Walter Hays Parkside Drive, Palo Alto

Stop over-development Editor, It was so nice to read a piece of real in-depth investigative journalism in Friday’s Weekly. This is rarely seen anymore. The story by Gennady Sheyner presented both sides of the Measure D debate accurately and fairly and answered, or at least explained, many of the

questions I had. I will be voting no on Measure D. I see a no vote as a message to stop the rampant aggressive overdevelopment that is driven by greedy developers and, if not with a colluding city council and planning department, then certainly with them as active participants. Zoning codes are being ignored and increased density is sold off to the highest bidder via “planned community” designation while quality of life is being degraded throughout the city. It certainly looks like the city is pocketing the extra loot from up-zoning and overdeveloping while the residents are left to bear the costs in terms of ugly high-rise buildings, overcrowded streets, schools, parks and lack of infrastructure. I would suggest that this is only the beginning of the battle where residents start to defend their quality of life against mass urbanization of the Peninsula. Tina Peak Palo Alto Avenue, Palo Alto

A preferable alternative Editor, I urge Palo Alto voters to support Measure D. There is a desperate need for affordable housing in Palo Alto, and the need is particularly acute among seniors. Measure D would provide 60 units of low-income housing for seniors. To make this financially feasible, the project also includes 12 single-family homes, which will be sold at market rates. Measure D is a vote on whether to authorize this project. If it passes, the nonprofit Palo Alto Housing Corporation will build the project described above. If it is defeated, the land will most probably be sold to for-profit developers who will be able to build up to 46 units there under current zoning. This is all that is on the ballot. Despite opponents’ claims, nothing else is at issue. All of the senior units being proposed are one-bedroom, but a commercial developer would squeeze in as many bedrooms as possible. So the likely alternative to the pro-

posed project would probably be higher density, measured in bedrooms, and hence would generate more traffic. In short, the proposed project is preferable on all counts. Vote Yes on Measure D! Tom Wasow Barron Avenue, Palo Alto

Support senior housing Editor, I’ve read a lot of comments where Maybell opponents say they support affordable senior housing; they just think it should only be 41 units without any market-rate homes. This seems a little disingenuous to me. Firstly, this would eliminate 19 units of desperately needed affordable senior housing — 32 percent of the proposal. Secondly, I learned at an early age that money doesn’t grow on trees. Land in Palo Alto is exorbitantly expensive. Senior affordable housing projects don’t get created out of thin air, and construction companies won’t build them for free. The 12 market-rate homes help offset some of the costs of the project, for land acquisition and construction. The 60 units of senior affordable housing help PAHC qualify for state tax credits. Removing anything from this project eliminates any chance at building senior affordable housing there. Support affordable housing for seniors. Vote yes on Measure D.

Editor, Palo Alto was a great place to live. It was blessed with a pleasant climate and a world-class university. Early city governments invested in utility services, parks and open space. Our excellent public schools attract attention around the world. Citizens volunteered thousands of hours to zone city land to balance business, development and residential interests. Over the years, “proponents of rezoning” have tilted that balance toward development and away from residents. Providing low-cost senior housing such as that proposed for Maybell Avenue can be achieved without sacrificing residential neighborhoods. City Council could stop skimming off millions in utility profits every year and set them aside for senior housing. After years of citizen complaints, City Hall awoke recently and exclaimed, “There’s a parking and traffic problem. Let’s hire a consultant to study it.” Then they defined the scope of the study leaving out a critical development proposal in the study area, 27 University Ave. They talk of the jobs/ housing imbalance with far more jobs than housing, yet they continue to rezone land to approve more and more job sites. The very soul of Palo Alto as a tranquil place to live is at risk. Use your vote AGAINST Measure D this Nov. 5 to send City Hall this message: Protect residential neighborhoods.

“When I do an interview, there’s almost always a moment when I’m moved to tears or am excited or angry, and I track that moment and build the film around it,” Menlo Park filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman, above left, says. Above right are stills from her new film “World Peace is a Local Issue,” showing some of the protestors from the U.S. nuclearfreeze movement in the ‘80s.

World peace on the grassroots level Film salutes a 1982 Palo Alto campaign to support a nuclear freeze by Rebecca Wallace


bout 300 determined people packed the Palo Alto City Council chambers on the night of April 19, 1982. The issue at hand wasn’t one of parking or development. It was the small matter of world peace. Councilwoman Ellen Fletcher had introduced a resolution endorsing a bilateral nuclear freeze, but the measure wasn’t going over well with her colleagues. Most said they felt the issue was well outside a local governmental body’s jurisdiction. But then came the 40 public speakers, there to make the case that a global issue can be local and that one person’s decision can resonate far and wide. Some were young, like Palo Alto High School student Robbyn Kenyon, who presented a petition with

1,000 Paly signatures and said, “We feel that without this reduction (in nuclear arsenals), our future is in jeopardy.” On the other end of the spectrum was Frank Spencer, about to turn 89, who told the council, “I’m afraid I’m going to live as long as you do, because we’ll all be wiped out at the same time.” Also in the crowd was Dorothy Fadiman. Today she’s a respected filmmaker; that night she was using a camera for the first time. When the council made a dramatic reversal and approved the nuclear-freeze motion to a cheering crowd, the camera was rolling. Now that drama is the center of a newly edited Fadiman documentary called “World Peace Is a Local Issue.” The film, about

The documentary premieres Oct. 25 at a Palo Alto event that also salutes other local political enterprises on the Midpeninsula. At the event, called “Democracy in Action,” other presenters will include East Palo Alto activist Isaiah Phillips, who will show videos on citizen efforts including “The Weeks Neighborhood Plan”; and Erika Escalante, who will speak on the work to keep residents of Palo Alto’s Buena Vista Mobile Home Park from losing their homes. The evening will be part of the United Nations Association Film

Festival. It will also serve as a memorial tribute to Fletcher and to Gary Fazzino, who was on the City Council that night in 1982 and said the speakers inspired him to support the nuclear-freeze resolution. Both died in 2012. That one vote change, the emotion in Kenyon’s voice, the steadfastness in Spencer’s: They’re all why Fadiman makes films. Her art, she says, is one of moments. Points in time that are rich with meaning. “When I do an interview, there’s almost always a moment when I’m moved to tears or am excited or angry, and I track that moment and build the film around it,” she told the Weekly. Over the years, the Menlo Park filmmaker has found inspiration in a world of topics. As she says

on her website, “Our films document stories of individuals and communities working toward social justice, human rights and personal growth.” The 20-plus movies include a series of four films on reproductive rights (one, “When Abortion Was Illegal,” was nominated for an Academy Award for best short film); and a five-film series on HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia. When Fadiman went to the council chambers in 1982, she had already made the 1978 inspirational film “Radiance: The Experience of Light,” about the symbolism of light across cultures. “World Peace Is a Local Issue” would be her first documentary. Camera in hand, she witnessed ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê˜iÝÌÊ«>}i®

the meeting and the peace rally that came before. It truly felt like witnessing history, she said. One aspect of the day that Fadiman still remarks on is the respectful level of debate. “Nobody who spoke to the council attacked them. They were eloquent; they were poignant; they were wellinformed,” she said.

performances of two men circling the beautiful Tosca, one simmering with love, the other, lust. In minor roles, Carl King as Sagrestano offers the perfect comic touch to the first scene without tipping into the buffoonery that some singers bring to the role. William O’Neill as the fugitive Angelotti, Nadav J. Hart as Spoletta, and Mathew Pierce as Sciarrone add solid singing and acting. West Bay has typically attracted talented singers to its chorus, and this production is no exception. Following a scene in the Church of Sant’Andrea della Valle in which Scarpia deceives — and blatantly lusts for — Floria Tosca, the chorus joins the malevolent police chief in a luscious “Te Deum” to end Act I. With Tosca and her desired conquest still on his mind, Scarpia remembers only late in the hymn that he’s in a church, and sings in rich bass-baritone sleaziness, “Tosca, you make me forget God!” The current production of this verismo masterpiece, which pre­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê˜iÝÌÊ«>}i®

miered in Rome in 1900, is West Bay Opera’s sixth. In addition to treating the ears, this production features fine acting befitting the high-octane theatricality of the story, based on a work by French playwright Victorien Sardou. The team leading this dynamic production is made up of West Bay Opera’s general director,

José Luis Moscovich, who conducts the orchestra, and stage director Richard Harrell. The opera is sung in Italian, with English supertitles. Jean-François Revon is responsible for the splendid set. And in an innovation for the opera company, Revon co-designed, with Frederic O. Boulay, set-enhancing video-projected images. West Bay, based in Palo Alto, proves over and over again that you don’t have to go to San Fran-

the good when relevant misdeeds are exposed. Lin’s play adds little to the debate about political deal-making or character-bashing and surprisingly next to nothing about the perils of being “ethnic” in American politics. It feels like a one-act drawn out to full length at the cost of action and interest. The more intriguing plot threads — is Holly unbalanced, or is Julius? potential suicide real or imagined? marital strife and its stresses? — are never developed. The ending is vague and undramatic; it feels like there’s a scene missing. And why the piano? An homage to Hedda? So many loose ends and, in the long run, inconsequential, a slight blip in the political landscape. Erik Flatmo’s revolving set is quite attractive, but slows the action even further, and forces movement in the kitchen to be quite flat and forward. Lighting by Steven B. Mannshardt adds interesting texture and depth, and Noah Marin’s costumes help define characters well. Brendan Aanes’ sound design creates a backdrop of political speechifying, but it’s just muffled enough that one can’t hear if it’s the rhetoric of scandal or not. Director Leslie Martinson has assembled a fine cast, each actor well-suited to the character, but the play’s inaction weighs them all down and masks their capabilities. The better scenes occur between Holly and either of the men, where it feels like there is more conflict fueling the tension, but even those are dragged out. Lin obviously has credible skills in dialogue, and has justifiably grabbed the attention of the theater world. This play, however, feels like it was rushed into production before it had a chance to fully develop, perhaps because of the timely topic.

the Art Institute of California in Sunnyvale, catering and working retail as culinary manager at Sur La Table in Palo Alto — but grew disillusioned with the lack of creativity involved with the latter two. “How it all started was, I did a lot of catering but got really bored with the menu,” she said. “It was time for an evolution and time for something new. I’ve always wanted to try different dishes out on people — something constantly changing from month to month, would that be something interesting?” So she went for it, launching her first dinner in 2012. “The first dinner was everything I just wanted to make, that I’d been dying (to make),” she said. Twelve diners, mostly past Sur La Table customers or friends, met at a home in Los Altos Hills for an international affair, din-

Last month, Julia Child was celebrated with a bouillabaisse à la Marseillaise and beef bourguignon served next to a deconstructed herbed potato gratin.

meals put on once a month at different locations in Silicon Valley. Each dinner is devised and executed by Gale Tan, a California transplant from the Philippines who’s really, really into food. Tan, born in Manila, has been cooking since she was 8 years old, when she learned how to make paella — her grandfather loved Spanish food. She came to the United States in the early 1990s and ended up at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, where she learned how to cook everything from Italian to French to African cuisine. She went on to get her hands dirty at various levels of the industry — washing dishes, serving, teaching culinary school at

Recipe from Harry’s Bar in Venice Harry’s Bar opened in 1931 when Giuseppe Cipriani, an enterprising bartender at the Hotel Europian Venice, got some financial assistance from a rich, young American from Boston named Harry Pickering. According to Cipriani company history, Pickering had been a customer at the Hotel Europa for some time, suddenly stopped frequenting the hotel bar. Cipriani saw Pickering one day and asked why he no longer patronized the bar. Pickering was broke, he explained to the bartender — his family cut him off when it was discovered he had not curtailed his recklessness and fondness for drinking. So, Cipriani loaned his patron a chunk of cash — about 10,000 lire, or $5,000 U.S. Two years later, Pickering walked back into the Hotel Europa, ordered a drink at the bar, handed 10,000 lire to Giuseppe Cipriani — he then handed Cipriani more. “Mr. Cipriani, thank you. Here’s the money. And to show you my appreciation, here’s 40,000 more, enough to open a bar. We will call it Harry’s Bar.” Located on Calle Vallaresso, close to the Piazza San Marco, the bar — as the Cipriani’s have always called it — was first conceived as a hotel bar, serving no food, and later transformed into a restaurant.

Bring a large pot of water to boil before preparing the sauce. If using dry pasta salt boiling water and add pasta. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, let it cook until golden, about 30 seconds, and discard it. Add the zucchini and cook for two minutes. Add the shrimp, the pepper flakes, and some salt, the wine and cook for three minutes, tossing constantly, until the shrimp are bright pink and firm to the touch. Reserve 1/4 cup of the mixture for garnish. Set aside. If using fresh pasta, salt the boiling water, add the pasta, and cook until “al dente” (about 2-3 minutes). Drain well in a colander, Toss the pasta with the zucchini and shrimp mixture, add the butter and the Parmesan, and toss well. Transfer.

Eating Out

ing on truffle mac and cheese, Japanese egg custard, paella and more. Since then, she’s hosted six dinners in the Peninsula area. Diners can purchase tickets online or via phone (the price varies, but it’s usually around $100 per person). They’ll know the theme and menu, but won’t know where they’re eating until they receive an email about four days beforehand. The dinners always include multiple appetizers and a choice of entrees and dessert, all made from seasonal, local, sustainable ingredients and prepared in a Health Depa r tment-inspected and -licensed commercial kitchen that Tan rents. The dinners are B.Y.O.B., as Tan serves only non-alcoholic drinks. George Brandetsas and his wife, Karen Learn, went to their first SV Underground dinner two years ago. Brandetsas said his wife heard about the dinners from one of the many local restaurant and chef blogs she follows. “It was fantastic,” he said, recalling that diners made their own pizzas and baked them in a wood-fired oven on site. He and his vegetarian wife, who live in Sunnyvale, also attended the September Julia Child dinner (their third). “The food was unique,” he said. Other menu items included

a double-baked cheese soufflé with parmesan cream, topped with greens (foraged by Tan in undisclosed local places) and edible flowers; and individual Queen of Sheba chocolate cakes, topped with seasonal fruit and vanilla creme. “Obviously there are some things you don’t like because your tastes don’t run that way but overall the food was terrific,” Brandetsas said. “I think the bouillabaisse was the best I ever had.” One of Tan’s past culinary students, Shari Levin, also attended the September dinner, which was her first. She said she loved the polenta, one that Tan chose for its rarity. The heirloom Floriani red flint corn was once a staple crop in northern Italy but died out about 250 years ago. The grain, recently brought back and grown in the United States, is earthier, nuttier than typical polenta. “It’s just not the usual thing,” Tan said of the food she serves. Past dinner themes have included A5 wagyu beef (A5 being the highest meat grade), Don Quixote (Spanish cuisine) and a “Spring Forager’s Feast.” At the dinners, all of the diners — most of whom don’t know each other — are seated together at community tables. Tan walks them through the menu and answers any questions they might have. Previous culinary students

and her two daughters often help out behind the scenes. “One of the fun things about that is you meet a lot of people,” Brandetsas said. “You’re at a community table, you have a good time, everybody brings their own wine, (we) did some wine tasting with some of the other folks’ wine that they brought.” Tan is looking forward to the October dinner’s Halloween theme, so she can serve “all the crazy stuff” she likes (braised ox tongue, for instance) but also plenty of easy-to-stomach dishes (creepy creamy carrot, chestnut and butternut squash soup; poached franken fish; blood-curdling midnight risotto). The next dinner will be on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $114; a cheaper-priced ticket has already sold out. November’s dinner, “The Hunger Games: Tributes Feast at the Capitol,” is inspired by the science-fiction series and shaped by seasonal fall ingredients. There will be lamb stew (sourced from a New Zealand ranch), Dungeness crab salad, wild mushroom soup and apple cinnamon tartlettes with lavender, honey and goat cheese. Though ticket prices are high and many menu items high-end, neither Tan nor SV Underground are highfalutin’. The dinners are meant to be casual, bringing together those who love food the most and launching them on


monthly underground gastronomical adventures. N Editorial Assistant Elena Kadvany can be emailed at

ing a don’t-mess-with-me Jessica Alba) for juicy details of their interpersonal issues. Carter remains determined to prove he has none: To clear the air for the wedding of his kid brother Trey (Clark Duke), Carter tricks his mortal-enemy parents (Jenkins and O’Hara) into a summit meeting. The results — and Carter’s ever-more-awkward commitment-phobic floundering with girlfriend Lauren (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) — only compound his neuroses. Zicherman and co-screenwriter Ben Karlin (“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”) make plenty of hay from divorce damages, beginning with a film-opening flashback to Carter’s core trauma: the ninth-birthday party at which the cops arrived to break up his parents’ fighting. “You have turned a nine-year marriage into a hundred-year war,” the son tells his parents. Scott’s withering remarks and deadpan reactions recall Michael Bluth of “Arrested Development,” though part of the fun here is seeing Scott tangle with his “Parks and Recreation” co-star Poehler, who plays Jenkins’ second wife and mother to two future “A.C.O.D.”s. Restaurateur Carter becomes reduced to asking his kitchen staff, “Am I living in a shell of insecurity and approval-seeking?” It’s not a rhetorical question, but it might as well be. “A.C.O.D.” hums along nicely as it diagnoses what Dr. Judith calls “the least-parented, least-nurtured generation — ever.” It’s funny without being broad, thanks to a fine ensemble (O’Hara is particularly funny at being cluelessly offensive), and Zicherman cultivates a hip, if not hipster, tone abetted by Nick Urata’s score and an NPR-friendly Sarah Vowell cameo. Rated R for language and brief sexual content. One hour, 30 minutes. — Peter Canavese

The architecture of Southgate homes, some dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, varies from the tile-roofed, stucco and arched Spanish (top and bottom) to English cottage-style (middle).

ush, fragrant vegetation and lazily oscillating rope swings characterize Southgate, where life is quiet and relaxing. Birds are audible and so are the happy sounds of play in adjacent Alexander Peers Park. Trees provide ample shade and, when the season is right, fruit. Residents David and Anne Kramer have lived in Southgate with their son for the past nine years. “Life in Southgate is vibrant,” Anne said. “There is a vitality to the neighborhood because of the changing demographic, with younger families moving in.” Longtime resident Jim Cornett shares similar feelings. “Southgate renews itself,” he said. “Our children are grown, but there are lots of young chil­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÎn)

Both Pai and the Kramers said they consider their neighborhood to be a tightknit, family-friendly community. There are block parties twice a year in Southgate, including a Fourth of July celebration.

My kids loved it.� Pai and Cornett observed that Southgate’s layout, with definite neighborhood boundaries, smaller lots, and pathways between neighbor’s home, fosters friendships among neighbors. “People are outside, walking dogs. Kids are outside, and people are gardening,� Pai said. Though life in Southgate is generally laid-back, there remains the potential for changes to the neighborhood from the proposed highspeed railway. Past high-speed rail proposals included the removal of neighborhood homes to make

space for an elevated train track. “High-speed rail is a pall that is cast over Southgate,� Anne Kramer said. “It casts a dark cloud that comes and goes, depending on where it is on the radar of California.� She added that property values in Southgate affected by high-speed rail concerns seem to be recovering recently, with the increases in sales prices of homes that would be affected by the rail.

Positively Green

Natural resources vs. human resources by Iris Harrell


hose of you who are regular readers of “Positively Green” know that I typically write about green building and construction, and living a green lifestyle. One of the main concerns of the green movement is how to conserve our natural resources for this and future generations. As a former school teacher, I see another connection between natural resources and our human resources when it comes to improving the environment and the conditions of life on earth. Last year New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman wrote an interesting article about the relationship of countries that have a shortage of natural resources and their better optimization of human resources when no other options were available (San Jose Mercury News, 3/11/12). His best example was Taiwan, which is his favorite country other than America. When asked why, he pointed out that Taiwan has no natural resources like gold or oil, but the education and skill level of its 23 million people makes it have the fourth largest financial reserves on the planet. Taiwan’s geographical make-up consists

of barren rock in seas with reoccurring typhoons. Taiwan even has to import gravel and sand for its construction projects ... yet it is “rich”! How can a country without diamonds and forests, without iron ore or oil and very little coal or natural gas, be “rich”? Taiwan was forced early on in its economic development to rely on enlarging knowledge and skills of its people, since it had almost nothing in the ground to mine. Therefore education became a top priority for its economic growth. And fortunately education is one of those sustainable resources that “keeps on giving” without relying on finite and scarce natural resources. Last year the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) completed a study that tested science, math and reading-comprehension skills of 15-year-olds in 65 countries, posted against their country’s total income from natural resources as a GDP percentage. In summation, how well the high school students of these countries did on science and math was measured in relation to how much oil was pumped or diamonds dug in each country. The relationship was very revealing. These PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) exams reveal a global pattern that is worth learning from. Which begs the question:

Would standardized green education in public schools (science curriculum) help conserve resources or possibly reduce pollution or climate change? The countries with high PISA scores and few natural resources are doing incredibly well (Finland, Japan, South Korea, Turkey, Hong Kong, Singapore). Yet many countries with high natural resources have lower PISA scores — Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Kazakstan, Iran, Syria, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina, to name a few. There are a few countries that have both high natural resources available and still score well on the PISA educational skills scores. Norway, Australia and Canada have government policies of high savings from the money made from extracting their natural resources. These countries have realized that their human resources are as valuable as their natural resources and that when they deplete all of the extractions from the ground, the human-resource investment is the sustainable one that will keep on giving high standard of living benefits to their citizens. Friedman’s whole point is that in the 21st century, how a country is going to really thrive is going to be measured from the number of highly effective teachers Los Altos Hills

and committed students they have, not by their oil reserves or gold and diamond mines. Education is the 21st-century predictor for a country’s wealth and improved societal outcome. When money is flowing because oil is flowing out of the ground, there is not as much effort required for a country’s economic survival. This often leads to overlooking human resource development as the real winning hand for long-term success. Those countries that realize they must live and survive by their skills and knowledge have given great emphasis to the quality of their national education systems. If America would recommit to improving our educational systems and making them more affordable for all of its citizens, we would be able to demonstrate like some of the other more advanced nations that human resources are our best sustainable and self-renewing resource. The founder of Silicon Valley’s Bloom Energy, KR Sridhar said it best. “When you don’t have resources, you become more resourceful.” How green is that!

Castilleja, SHP, Gunn, Palo Alto, M-A and Menlo all enjoying winning years heading into postseason by Keith Peters hen Donn Levine took over the Castilleja golf program this season, he had some very specific ideas on how he wanted the season to turn out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I took over the team, my stated goal was to win it all, not just WBAL,â&#x20AC;? Levine said of his high expectations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first was accomplished. Now we need to focus more on what is going to make us even better.â&#x20AC;? Castilleja wrapped up its seventh league title with a 207-228 victory over host Harker in a West Bay Athletic League dual match Tuesday at Los Lagos Golf Course in San Jose. The Gators (9-1, 9-2) were led by junior Chloe Sales, who shot a 1-over 35 to earn medalist honors. Junior Nicole Mitchell (39) and her twin, Danielle (42), also defeated their opponents as

did sophomore Paris Wilkerson (43) and freshman Risa Yang (48). Castilleja is now 63-3 in league play since the 2007 season, the start of its string of league titles. The Gators bounced back nicely from Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 202-209 loss to second-place Sacred Heart Prep, a setback that ended a streak of 29 straight league victories. SHP also ended a Castilleja streak of 22 straight league wins in 2010. Prior to that, Castillejaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous loss came to Harker in 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a big win,â&#x20AC;? SHP coach Mark Dowdy said of Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win, which avenged an earlier fourstroke loss to Castilleja. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tie does hurt us, though. It was kind of a perfect storm when we had the tie. We had three matches that week and

Playoff pressure for Rice

First loss offers a challenge

by Rick Eymer t has been a year since Stanford football coach David Shaw has had to prepare his team for a game following a loss. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approaching it just like he would any other week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said all along letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play the season and see how it turns out at the end,â&#x20AC;? Shaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we deserve to be in a bowl game, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go wherever they send us.â&#x20AC;? Junior Kevin Hogan prepares for a game as quarterback after experiencing his first loss as a starter. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably following Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s example and preparing just like he would any other week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be just fine,â&#x20AC;? Cardinal senior center Khalil Wilkes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might hurt him a little bit inside but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competitive, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to step up to the challenge.â&#x20AC;?

tanford professor Condoleezza Rice knew college football needed a playoff system in 1966, when as a little girl, she and her late father John listened to a Michigan StateNotre Dame game on the radio. The contest ended in a 10-10 tie, both teams finished 9-0-1, and shared a controversial national title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been trying to get this right for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Rice said Wednesday during a national conference call with reporters. While some have questioned why the former Secretary of State was named to the 13-member College Football Playoff selection committee, a group that includes former Stanford head coach Tyrone Willingham, and Oliver Luck, the athletic director at West Virginia, and father of former Cardinal All-American Andrew Luck, Professor Rice is more than up for the challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a college football fan all my life,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the

OF LOCAL NOTE . . . Jesse Ebner and Sarah Daschbach once were volleyball teammates at Sacred Heart Prep. In fact, they helped the Gators reach the CIF Division IV state championship match in 2010. This past Saturday, however, the former teammates were rivals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Daschbach playing for Princeton and Ebner for Yale. Ebner came out on top as the Bulldogs took a bite out of the Tigers, 25-21, 16-25, 25-14, 25-15 to remain unbeaten (5-0) in Ivy League action. Ebert played in three of the four sets and managed six kills while hitting .545 as Yale improved to 11-3 overall. Daschbach played in every set and had nine digs with an ace as Princeton dropped to 2-3 in league (6-9 overall). Earlier in the weekend, Yale defeated Penn, 2518, 25-14, 25-27, 25-21, as Ebner contributed 12 kills on 23 swings for .522 hitting. Ebner was the reigning Ivy League Player of the Week. In other college volleyball action on the weekend: Palo Alto High grad Melanie Wade helped Washington to a pair of Pac-12 victories as the Huskies moved to No. 6 nationally in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Top 25 poll. Wade had four kills and hit .333 in a sweep of No. 16 Arizona State and had six kills and five block assists in a 3-1 win over Arizona. Wade also had three kills Wednesday night in a sweep of visiting Cal as the Huskies moved to 6-1 in conference (14-1 overall) . . . In Stockton, Paly grad Kimmy Whitson was busy in a pair of West Coast Conference matches for Pacific. In a 3-1 win over Loyola Marymount, Whitson had 42 assists, six kills, seven digs and three blocks. Earlier, in a loss to Pepperdine, Whitson finished with 49 assists and 12 digs. The Tigers are 3-4 in league (10-8 overall) . . . At Connecticut College, Menlo School grad Anelise Hohl and Paly grad Caroline Martin helped the Camels sweep Bates College on Saturday.

Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball Seventh-ranked Stanford (12-3, 5-1 Pac-12) travels to the Pacific Northwest this weekend to take on Pac-12 foes Washington State (15-4, 2-4 Pac-12) and Washington (14-1, 6-1 Pac-12). The Cardinal face the Cougars on Friday at 6 p.m. in Pullman before playing the sixth-ranked Huskies on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. in Seattle. Stanford got back on track last week, sweeping Utah and Colorado in Maples Pavilion. Ten of the Cardinalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12 wins this season have been sweeps. Senior middle blocker Carly Wopat was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week after hitting .529 in the two matches (20-1-34). Junior libero Kyle Gilbert led the defense with 5.83 digs per set, including a match-high 19 against Utah. Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team blocks per set mark of 3.03 is the best in the nation. Wopat leads the conference and is 13th nationally with 1.40 blocks per set, while sophomore Inky Ajanaku is third in the Pac12 and 30th in the nation with 1.31 blocks per set. Wopat recently eclipsed the 500 block plateau,

while Ajanaku tallied the 200th of her career against Colorado on Oct. 12. Stanford setter Madi Bugg has controlled the offense this season, ranking second in the Pac-12 and fifth in the nation with 11.88 assists per set. Five Cardinal players are averaging at least 2.33 kills per set: Wopat (3.26), Rachel Williams (3.00), Brittany Howard (2.86), Jordan Burgess (2.45) and Ajanaku (2.33). Gilbert has led the defensive side of the ball for the Cardinal this season and ranks second on the Pac-12 charts with 4.70 digs per set. Field hockey No. 13 Stanford heads to North Carolina this weekend for a pair of top-25 matchups, taking on No. 14 Wake Forest and No. 8 Duke. The Cardinal opens Friday at 4 p.m. (PT) against Wake Forest (8-5) before heading to Duke (10-3) Sunday at 9 a.m. Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer No. 10 Stanford attempts to halt a rare three-match losing streak when it plays host to Utah on Friday at 7 p.m. to conclude a five-match conference-opening homestand. This also is Homecoming Weekend at Stanford, and the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer program will honor its alumnae at halftime; more than 60 are expected to attend. Stanford (9-3-1 overall, 2-3-0) is out to end a slump that has caused the Cardinal to drop eight spots in the NSCAA/Continental Tire rankings in two weeks.

In the boys’ varsity race, MenloAtherton finished third with 104 points while trailing Carlmont (28) and Half Moon Bay (50). Zach Plante led the Bears with a fifth-place finish of 16:14.

opportunity for a college football playoff that properly balances all of the factors, including academic schedule, the need for head-tohead competition, and the bowl traditions is exactly the right step, and I’m just delighted to try and make it work.” Willingham coached at Stanford from 1995-2001 and compiled a 44-36-1 record. He was a twotime Pac-10 Conference Coach of the Year, and led the Cardinal to the Rose Bowl in 1999, its first appearance since 1971. The selection committee will pick four teams to compete in the College Football Playoff following the 2014 regular season. Rice was first approached about serving on the committee by Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. Later, she had a conversation with Bob Bowlsby, the Big 12 Commissioner and former athletic director at Stanford.

Stanford Professor Condoleezza Rice “When I was approached, I said, ‘Well, tell me what you think I can bring to this committee?’ ‘’ Rice said. “First of all, people thought

that it was important to have diversity of experience. There’s a reason that corporate boards are not all CEOs. You want people who have diversity of experience. “Secondly, they said we want people who will make critical judgments and do that under pressure. But they also said they want people who love college football, and I absolutely fit into that category. “As Provost at Stanford, athletics reported to me for six years, so I understand the game from the administrative side, too. I hired Ty Willingham, and indeed, all the way back in 1988, served on the committee that brought Denny Green to Stanford as coach. So I’ve been in and around the game quite a lot. But I think what I can hopefully bring to this committee is critical judgment, a willingness to work hard with some very fine people to put the best four teams on the playing field to try and decide the national champion.” Rice knows some have questioned her credentials to serve on the committee, but is unfazed. “I’ve been in enough positions to respect people who have different views,” she said. “You could say, ‘You should have played football to be on this committee.’ But of course, not everyone on this committee, including me, played football. I’m a student of the game and I believe I will work very, very hard reviewing as much film as I possibly can to try and make a good judgment.” Rice was also asked if she was selected to give women a voice. “I don’t feel that I’m carrying a banner for anyone except those of us who love college football,” said Rice. “And by the way, that includes a lot of women, too. But for me, this is trying to get the college football playoff system right.” Not that she will need a sounding board, but Rice can always consult with close friend Gene Washington, a standout wide receiver at Stanford (1966-68) and with the San Francisco 49ers. When he was enshrined in the 2012 Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame, she was his presenter. One thing seems certain: If the committee has to make tough choices narrowing the College Football Playoff to four teams, she can handle the pressure. “I think I’ve experienced plenty of heat in my life,” she said. And her father would be proud. “I suspect that my father would be awfully glad that this college playoff system is going to head-tohead competition,” said Rice. “He was always frustrated as a fan that we didn’t have head-to-head competition. I think a lot of fans have felt that way. And now, through a semifinal and ultimately a final, you enhance the possibility for the best teams selected to go head-tohead. That’s gotta be good for college football and I think he would have appreciated that.”N Mark Soltau writes for Stanford Athletics/

and Oregon in the Pac-12 North Division standings. Stanford, favored by 5 1/2 points, will have its hands full with the Bruins, who feature one of the top offensive players in the nation in quarterback Brett Hundley and one of the top defensive players in the nation in Anthony Barr. The Cardinal continues to hang on to hopes of repeating as conference champion, which makes this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game somewhat of a must-win. Second-ranked Oregon is not expected to lose any time soon and it would be prudent to remain within reach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost every game this year we see something different than what is on film,â&#x20AC;? Shaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to adjust to different blitzes, different looks.â&#x20AC;? Hogan gets most of the attention, though Shaw reaffirmed that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always on the quarterback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kevin has not played great the past couple of weeks but he has done great things,â&#x20AC;? Shaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are always mitigating factors. After this game, in my opinion, he will no longer be a freshman.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reference to the redshirt sophomore Hogan making only his 12th start this weekend. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been pretty good so far and is facing a little adversity for the

Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tyler Gaffney, here scoring against Utah last weekend, rushed for more than 100 yards for the fourth time this season. first time. Not able to rally the team to a late win last week, he may be under more scrutiny this time around. Hogan still has Ty Montgomery and Tyler Gaffney, both of whom did their best to lift Stanford during its 27-21 loss to Utah last weekend. Gaffney rushed for more than 100 yards for the fourth time, and scored a touchdown in his fifth contest. He did not score in Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win over Washington State, which was the Cardinalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highestscoring game of the season. Gaffney has 570 rushing yards this season, already a career best. Montgomery recorded season

highs of eight catches for 131 yards, though his only touchdown was a 100-yard kickoff return. He recorded 296 all-purpose yards against the Utes and is the national leader in kickoff returns. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also third nationally, averaging 196.5 yards a game. Shaw credits health and his growth as an athlete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knows the offense,â&#x20AC;? Shaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still building, still growing, still learning. He will be a superstar.â&#x20AC;? Montgomery also had career highs in receiving (31), receiving yards (514) and all-purpose yards (1,179). Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 84 yards shy of matching his career high for

kick return yardage. Stanford will need more than offense to get past UCLA. The Bruins rank second in passing efficiency, second in scoring (at 45.8 points a game), second in scoring defense (18.2), second in total offense (547.0) and fourth in total defense (344.8). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to play better on offense and we have to play better on defense,â&#x20AC;? Cardinal cornerback Jordan Richards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about as simple as that.â&#x20AC;? Hundley ranks third in passing efficiency, just ahead of Hogan. Hundley has thrown for 1,459 yards and 12 touchdowns, compared to Hoganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,178 yards and 12 touchdowns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in their system and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big, strong kid,â&#x20AC;? Richards said of Hundley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic and he can throw the rock.â&#x20AC;? Gaffney ranks fourth in rushing with 95 yards a game, just ahead of UCLA junior Jordan James, who is currently listed as doubtful. Paul Perkins started in his place in UCLAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 37-10 win over California last weekend. The Bruins will be looking for their first win over Stanford since 2008. Stanford has won the past five meetings, including twice last year. UCLA senior outside linebacker Anthony Barr, a second team All-American last year when he ranked second in the nation in sacks, began his career as a fullback with the Bruins. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been

far more successful as a linebacker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kid is unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? Shaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as good as he was last season, if not better. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick, explosive and powerful. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best defensive player Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in the conference for the past few years.â&#x20AC;? Including UCLA, Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next three opponents are a combined 8-0 in conference play, 16-1 overall. In addition, California is the only team left on the schedule who has a losing record. It would be a good idea for Stanford to get back on the winning track. NOTES: Placekicker Jordan Williamson reportedly tweaked one of his legs during practice on Wednesday and could be sidelined for the UCLA game. If Williamson sits, redshirt freshman Conrad Ukropina would steart. Ukropina has attempted, and converted, only one extra point this season. Williamson is 25 of 26 on PATs and is 9 for 12 on field goals. His 36-yard field goal in last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pac-12 Championship game against UCLA lifted Stanford to a 27-24 victory . . . tight end Luke Kaumatule has been moved back to defensive end to help shore up an area plagued by injuries. The defensive line showed weaknesses during last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss to Utah, primarily a lack of depth that the 6-foot-7, 267-pound Kaumatule will help strengthen.N
