borhood supporters had argued for three days before Administrative Judge Craig Labadie that the sums proposed in a Relocation Impact Report were grossly inadequate. What, if any, impact the 11thhour changes to the report would have on Labadie’s decision is unclear. Melissa Morris, senior attorney for the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, representing the residents, told Labadie Monday that the report should be rejected outright.

“It’s impossible to respond to these amendments now, but we will respond in writing,” she said Wednesday after the Jissers’ attorney, Margaret Nanda, announced the amended plan. In February, the city finally deemed complete the fifth iteration of a Relocation Impact Report submitted by the Jissers. They offered to buy residents’ mobile homes for their appraised values and pay for the “startup costs” of relocating, which includes first-

and last-month’s rent, a security deposit and 12 months of rent subsidies that reflect the difference between the rent at Buena Vista and the rent at the new locations. The level of startup costs would vary based on the kind of housing the residents move into. For those moving into one-bedroom apartments, this sum would range from $12,000 to $16,300.

EDUCATION

Bullying guidelines get school-board committee’s OK Policy would cover harassment of students who aren’t in legally protected minority classes by Chris Kenrick fter 18 months of discussion, Palo Alto school board members appear to have reached agreement on a policy outlining steps to resolve bullying disputes. The board’s Policy Review Committee Tuesday approved a draft that will be up for discussion by the full board Tuesday, May 20. Bullying discussions in Palo Alto boiled over last year after a December 2012 finding by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) that the district’s mishandling of a long-running bullying case had violated the civil rights of a student with disabilities. While admitting no wrongdoing, the district agreed to adopt new policies as part of a resolution of that case. In February, the Board of Education met that obligation by passing new policies outlining a districtlevel procedure for complaints of discriminatory bullying or harassment based on a student’s disability, sexual orientation and other legally protected characteristic. The latest proposal — not required by the federal government — would cover students in “nonprotected” classes, meaning those who aren’t in specific, legally protected categories. Complaints from those “non-protected” students would be handled at the school level — as opposed to the district level for protectedstatus students. The principal would have a deadline of 15 school days to resolve the problem, and families would be able to appeal a principal’s decision to the district’s student-services coordinator. Some parents, who had argued for the simplicity of a uniform, dis-

Before graduation, an ‘exit interview’ JLS eighth-graders practice eye contact and present their accomplishments

W

earing their best dress-up clothes, eighth-graders at JLS Middle School practiced firm handshakes and conversation skills this week as they presented “portfolios” of their most treasured schoolwork to adult interview panels. “Exit interviews,” a nine-yearold tradition at JLS in Palo Alto, draws on outside volunteers to listen and probe as each student spends 15 minutes reflecting on his or her three years in middle school, ups and downs as a student and hopes for the future. The interviews were held in the gym, where about 12 pairs of interviewers sat at tables that were spaced out to facilitate private conversations. Despite the “monstrous” logistics of arranging individual, face-to-face interviews for 342 students, Principal Sharon Ofek said the effort pays off. “The students take it seri-

by Chris Kenrick ously,” she said. “They look so good, and they take pride in how they present themselves. It’s a marvelous way for them to grow some self-confidence, to stop and pause for a minute and realize that, ‘I’m only 13 or 14, but look at what I’ve done.’” Kids begin amassing work for their portfolios during their first year in middle school, sixth grade, choosing everything from poems they’ve written to math tests, social studies projects or choir CDs. On their interview day, some bring in hand-made pencils and pens — even hand-built clocks — constructed in the school’s Industrial Technology class. Also hauled in during Wednesday’s interviews were several small electric vehicles built by student teams in an after-school club. “The idea is to select work they’re proud of,” English teacher Jennifer Coluzzi said.

“Not just the things they got the best grade on, but something that helps them showcase their growth as a learner.” On Wednesday, an eighthgrader named Lisa carried a first-place trophy from karate and discussed her passions for singing, theater and teaching children. She showed photos of some of her “most lasting memories” of JLS — going twice on trips to Disneyland with the school choir. Lisa said she’d like to improve in “social studies, because I’m really bad at memorizing names and dates. It just doesn’t stick with me, and I want to have better study habits. Also math ...” But asked what she considers her positive characteristics, she said, “I like speaking my mind and standing up for people who can’t. I’ve been bullied before ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iʙ®

and Terri Lobdell trict-level complaint procedure for all students, as recommended by the California School Boards Association, appear to have dropped that argument after it met with resistance from principals, Superintendent Kevin Skelly and at least one school board member. Christina Schmidt, who earlier had advocated for a unified system, said the complaint and investigation procedures outlined in the new policy make it “fuller and richer” than previous versions. “That said, the execution is key,” Schmidt told the committee Tuesday. “We can write a policy that we like ... but it’s really about the execution of the policy and the (administrative regulations), and that’s what I see here as the next big step for everything.” Another parent at the meeting, Susan Stayn, said the new proposal, though “a step in the right direction,” remains insufficient in its protections of children, adding that it is too vague and assigns too much discretion to individual principals. Policy Review Committee members Heidi Emberling and Camille Townsend appeared satisfied with the investigation steps outlined in the new proposal. The last disagreement between them evaporated when Emberling dropped her preference for a definition of bullying used by educators rather than a definition based on the California Education Code’s disciplinary standards, as advocated by lawyer Dora Dome, a consultant to the district. According to the Education Code, bullying “is defined as any severe or pervasive physical or ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£{®

WELCOME TO THE PROCESS ... After weeks of barely meeting its quorum requirement, Palo Alto’s influential Planning and Transportation Commission is at last fully staffed. The City Council on Monday night voted to appoint Eric Rosenblum and Przemek Gardias to fill the two commission seats that were left vacant because of recent resignations of Alex Panelli and Eduardo Martinez. The council unanimously appointed Rosenblum to the seven-member commission for a term that ends in October 2017. In the second round of voting, Gardias edged Brian Hamachek by a 5-4 vote for a term that will end in October 2016. Rosenblum, a downtown resident who worked as Google’s director of strategy between 2008 and 2012, has become engaged in downtown’s recent debates over parking and traffic improvements as part of the nascent group Green Planning Action. He wrote in his application that he is particularly interested in the city’s transportation-demand management program, an effort to get commuters who drive alone to switch to other transportation modes. Gardias, an urban planner and architect, listed as his two main areas of particular interest the development plan for California Avenue (particularly as it relates to retention of local businesses) and the master plan for Rinconada Park. In another tight vote, the council appointed Jim Migdal to a seat on the Public Art Commission. Migdal, who beat out Christine Miller Kelly by a 5-4 vote, grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and worked as director of business development at Facebook between 2007 and 2011. GO GREEN WHILE YOU CAN ...�Palo Alto Utilities’ remaining residential solar PV system rebate funds aren’t expected to last much longer — perhaps only a few months — and when they are gone, that’s all folks!� With that message, Palo Alto Utilities Communications Manager Debra Katz and the city are hoping residents will get their photovoltaic kicks in while they can still be paid to do so. If you’re not sure if installing a solar system makes sense for your home or what the process is like, residents can head to the city’s free “Solar Power 101� workshop this Saturday, May 17,

9:30 a.m. to noon, at the Lucie Stern Community Room. The workshop will review how solar electric PV systems work, the environmental benefits of solar, the financial alternatives and how to pursue a project for one’s own home. Participants will also get the ins and outs of the city’s PV Partners rebate program and how to take advantage of federal solar tax credits. To maximize workshop benefits, participants are encouraged to check their own electric energy use (average monthly kilowatt-hours and cost) prior to the workshop. Doug McKenzie of SunWork Renewable Energy Projects will lead the class. Register online at the city website or call 650-329-2241 to reserve a spot.

BOUND FOR CARNEGIE HALL ...Palo Alto High School sophomore Caroline Bailey and Gunn High School junior Patricia Lin are among those heading for Carnegie Hall next month as winners in the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Caroline earned a medal in the science fiction/fantasy category for a piece titled “Tarnished Silver, Tarnished Souls.� Patricia earned a medal for her painting, “The Tainted Trinity.� SPANDEX NOT REQUIRED ... The City of Palo Alto is soon embarking on a host of bikeimprovement projects around the city, and it wants your input — appropriately enough, while on two wheels. The last of four informational bike-alongs the city is hosting will take place tomorrow, Saturday, at 10 a.m. Starting in the parking lot of Piazza’s Fine Foods at Middlefield and Charleston roads, cycling citizens will head out for a grand tour of various south Palo Alto projects, including a Bryant Street Bicycle Boulevard extension, Alma Street enhanced bikeway and the Montrose Avenue, Cubberley Center Trail and San Antonio Road Bicycle routes. Design consultants Alta Planning + Design, Fehr & Peers Transportation Consultants and Sandis Engineering will be bikers’ tour guides, answering questions regarding project development.

Palo Alto looks to cameras for traffic data New method raises privacy concerns from residents

S

eeking to gather more data about local bicyclists and pedestrians, Palo Alto has installed dozens of cameras around the city, prompting citizens’ concerns about their privacy. Chief Transportation Official Jaime Rodriguez told the Weekly that the city has been putting up cameras at different locations since April 28, with each camera staying up for a week before being taken down. The goal is to count the number of bicyclists and pedestrians in preparation for construction of new bike boulevards. The technology caused unease last weekend, as some residents wondered about the appearance of cameras near their homes. Paul Machado, who lives in Evergeen Park, noted in an email to the City Council Sunday that a camera on Stanford Avenue is “pointed in a way that will keep an accurate picture of every time we leave and return home.”

by Gennady Sheyner “I am uneasy with the Palo Alto Klandestine Gathering Bureaucrats, aka KGB, making a pictorial record of all my comings and goings,” Machado wrote. “My neighbors also may object.” On Monday, city officials made clear that the videos always point away from homes and only capture footage of roads and sidewalks. Furthermore, Rodriguez said, the city never sees the data. Rather, it goes to the city’s data-service providers, who then watch it at a high speed, tally up the numbers of bicyclists and pedestrians and send the city the numbers. “All we get is the raw data,” Rodriguez said. “And once the datacollection firm reviews the video, it is discarded.” There are three different firms providing data-collection services, he said. These are All Traffic Data, Traffic Data Services and Sandis. The goal is to collect data for 50 locations throughout the city. At

any given time, about 25 are up, he said. The ones in Evergreen Park are due to come down Saturday. In addition to the cameras, the city is using the traditional vehiclecounting tubes to gather data, but Rodriguez noted that the tubes aren’t sensitive enough to gather data about pedestrians and bicyclists. City Manager James Keene also addressed the camera issue during his comments to the City Council Monday night. The use of videobased traffic data is fairly new for the city, he said. He noted that it is “helpful in us being able to see good baseline data for pedestrian and bicycle use that has not been previously available to the city.” “I do think it’s unfortunate that we did not get this news out in advance, and I think we had a few surprising situations with folks sort of surprised by these cameras being put up,” Keene said. “We’ll probably be doing some more extensive outreach on that.” N

CITY CHARTER

When Is It Time To Downsize? There comes a time in the lives of many seniors when staying in their current home is no longer a safe or wise choice. But the decision to move is often delayed — or avoided altogether — because of the myriad of emotions and amount of work surrounding the transition. This is a difficult decision to make and can lead to decision-making paralysis that may have negative impacts on a senior’s life. For many seniors, just the thought of selling stirs up fear and anxiety about leaving their home, neighborhood, and friendships for unfamiliar territory— so much so that they often convince themselves a move isn’t necessary. A rational assessment and careful discussion of their current living arrangement and the alternative living options that are available may help determine if it is the time to downsize. In addition there are many resources that are aimed at seniors that cover financial, legal, healthcare, and other services. These resources guide seniors through the decision-making process.

Sometimes getting the adult children involved in the process can alleviate a senior’s anxiety and make the process less overwhelming. Ask yourself these questions that will help you better assess your situation and guide you through the decision-making process: s$OES YOUR HOME LACK THE AMENITIES that you need at your age? s(AVE YOU ISOLATED YOURSELF FROM friends and family because your inability to maintain your home has left it in disrepair? s(AVEYOUHADTROUBLElNDINGWORKERS to take care of maintenance? s! RE lNANCES KEEPING YOU FROM enjoying the home you’ve loved for so many years? s$OYOUFEELYOUHAVEINADEQUATESECURITY and access to care where you are? If you can answer yes to more than one of these questions, you are a candidate for change. In my next article I will discuss an action plan for seniors that will help them make a smooth transition.

I offer complimentary staging when I list your home. Contact me at Alain Pinel Realtors (650) 384-5392 or send me an email at scullen@apr.com. Follow my blog at samiacullen.com

PARENTS AND KIDS THINK THEY’RE “SICK”.

City eyes changes to council size, term limits Palo Alto City Council committee to consider possible changes to City Charter by Gennady Sheyner

A

proposal to cut the number of seats on the Palo Alto City Council continued to gather momentum on Monday night when Councilman Pat Burt joined three of his colleagues in offering tentative support for the change. The reduction is one of several reforms to the City Charter that may appear on the November ballot this year. Though the council on Monday didn’t decide on specific changes that would appear on the ballot, it voted unanimously to have the council’s Policy and Services Committee go through all the options and issue a recommendation to the full council. The menu of possible reforms the council considered was long and varied, including such things as higher compensation, districtbased elections, direct election of mayor and vice mayor, elimination of term limits and the reduction of seats from nine to seven. Two of these proposals, for district elections and direct mayoral election, fizzled during the discussion, and the council ultimately voted 8-1, with Larry Klein dissenting, not to send them to the committee for further discussion. The rest are fair game, the council unanimously decreed. Of those, longer term limits and a smaller council are on top of the list. The conversation over these two reforms was spurred by a June 2013 colleagues memo from Mayor Nancy Shepherd, Vice Mayor Liz Kniss and Councilwoman Gail Price. In the memo, they advocated

extending limits from the current two terms, arguing that this would allow council members to build up seniority and gain influential seats on regional boards such as Association of Bay Area Governments and Caltrain. The city had adopted term limits in 1992. Even though she had signed the memo, Kniss on Monday said she doesn’t believe extending term limits is all that critical. Between the 1960s and 1990s, an average council term was 6.5 years, she said, about the same as it has been since. She suggested that extending the limit to three terms is “a good idea” but acknowledged that for the most part, people are “self-limiting.” The trio also suggested cutting the number of seats from nine to seven, arguing that “this could bring efficiencies of meeting effectiveness and workload which deserves discussion and consideration while also reducing costs.” Though it remains to be seen whether the council majority agrees to place this change on the November ballot, the likelihood increased on Monday when Burt said that he is leaning toward supporting the proposal from his three colleagues. “I believe a smaller council size would in all likelihood lead to more efficient and more effective government,” Burt said. The committee will also consider other less drastic reforms, including holding swearing-in ceremonies for newly elected council

members on the first business day of the year, rather than during the first regular Monday meeting. This proposal, as well as one that would replace the largely ceremonial first meeting of January with a regular meeting, was proposed by a memo from Councilmen Larry Klein and Greg Schmid. The council didn’t spend much time Monday going over the various reforms, opting to reserve the bulk of its discussion for June, when the item comes back. Meanwhile, the committee is scheduled to vet the issues on May 20. Several members of the public addressed the council on the proposed changes, offering a range of opinions. Roger Smith, founding CEO of Silicon Valley Bank and a former council candidate, made a second pitch in as many weeks for a smaller council. “I’m a big believer in taking the council from nine to seven,” Smith said. “I just think it would be much more efficient. It would take less time, and staff would be more productive.” Council watchdog Bob Moss argued that it’s not the size of the council that matters, it’s how the members conduct themselves in their discussions. Historically, some council members enjoyed hearing themselves talk, Moss said, while others rarely asked questions. He also pointed out that Palo Alto has more boards and commissions than other cities and runs its own (continued on page £Ó)

Meet our two very popular pediatricians, Dr. Sky Pittson and Dr. Sarah Cueva. Parents like that they can talk to them directly instead of going through a nurse.

But Zuckerberg’s attorneys say he never had any such agreement, and the developer is just looking to extract more money and embarrass their client. Developer Mircea Voskerician claims he made an offer on the property at 1457 Hamilton Ave. in November 2012, after learning it abuts Zuckerberg’s backyard. He planned to build a large home on the site that would have been only 31 feet away from Zuckerberg’s house, according to the lawsuit, which was filed on May 2 in Santa Clara County Superior Court. He approached Zuckerberg with an offer to sell approximately 2,600 square feet of the property to increase a buffer zone between the two structures. Through his real-estate agent, Zuckerberg said he wanted instead to purchase the

entire property. Voskerician and Zuckerberg eventually did come to an agreement to buy out Voskerician’s contract with the property owner — for $1.7 million plus $129,000 in deposits the developer had put down on the property. But the two have very different versions about how they came to that arrangement. Voskerician says he gave Zuckerberg a discount because he had an agreement to receive business referrals from Zuckerberg, who allegedly offered to help him build his business. But Zuckerberg’s attorneys say they never agreed to those terms, and the written agreement they signed makes no reference to such promises. Voskerician said in court papers that when he offered to sell Zuckerberg a strip of the property for a buffer, Zuckerberg originally offered $250,000 for Voskerician’s contract, plus the amount Voskerician had advanced as a down payment, according to the lawsuit. Voskerician wanted $4.3 million, which he claims was the highest offer he received from

erberg that the Facebook CEO gave his company business and introductions to new clients in return for discounted services. The agent asked if Voskerician would give Zuckerberg a discount. Voskerician asked Zuckerberg if he wanted a discount on the property. Zuckerberg allegedly said “yes,� and that he could not pay $4.3 million for the property, according to the lawsuit. Zuckerberg allegedly stated that he built Facebook on relationships and connections. In exchange for a discount he would introduce Voskerician to his friends, clients and associates and promote Voskerician’s business by giving him referrals for new business and written references. The lawsuit alleges that Zuckerberg also offered to help Voskerician build the home he intended for the site at a different location. Voskerician accepted a $1.7 million contract buy out on Dec. 5, 2012, in exchange for the promises of personal references and business promotions from Zuckerberg. But after the deal, Voskerician tried to set up protocol for the business referrals. Zuckerberg was unresponsive, despite multiple attempts to contact him, according to court papers. But Patrick Gunn, an attorney for Zuckerberg, tells a different story. Voskerician approached Zuckerberg about building the huge house so close to Zuckerberg’s home, and the two did meet about buying out Voskerician’s contract. Zuckerberg purchased the contract for $1.7 million, plus refunded Voskerician $129,000 for his other deposits. Zuckerberg then paid the property owner $4.8 million for the property. But there was never any oral or written agreement regarding the promised business contacts, and the written contract-assignment agreement had the input of lawyers from both sides, Gunn said. “We think this is a manufactured claim. The meeting he describes is not the meeting that took place. It appears to be a claim that has just been invented in order to extract even more money from our client. If the plaintiff’s version of events were true and these alleged promises were actually made, I would think they would’ve been included in writing, and they were not,� Gunn said. In October 2013, Zuckerberg purchased three other properties neighboring his Crescent Park neighborhood home and said that he had done so after discovering that a developer was going to build a huge house directly be-

hind his property and use Zuckerberg as a selling point to increase the sales price for the new home. Zuckerberg had wanted to thwart the use of his name and preserve his privacy, media reports at the time stated. Voskerician said in court papers that he sent Zuckerberg a letter on Oct. 27, 2013, outlining their agreement. Zuckerberg had one of his financial advisers meet with Voskerician. But at the Dec. 27, 2013, meeting, Voskerician was essentially rebuffed, according to the lawsuit. No further contact took place with Zuckerberg or his advisers. On April 27, Voskerician sent Zuckerberg a letter rescinding the deal and offered to return the $1.7 million and other escrow costs, but he did not receive a response, the court papers state. He is suing for the balance of the $4.3 million he said he would have made had he sold to the highest bidder plus unspecified punitive and other damages. Gunn sent a letter to Voskerician’s attorney on May 1, prior to the lawsuit filing: “The facts stated in your letter and draft complaint are so distorted as to be unrecognizable to our clients. They reject them and dispute that Mr. Voskerician is entitled to any compensation or relief whatsoever. “Mr. Voskerician was in contract on the Hamilton property for a matter of weeks before he assigned his interest to SFRP LLC (a company set up for Zuckerberg). He realized $1.7 million from that assignment, a sum that can only be described as a windfall. It is disappointing to say the least, that he has chosen to distort the facts so grossly to manufacture a claim for even more money.� Voskerician and business partner Sam Sinnott recently settled a lawsuit with Menlo Park neighbors to add a driveway from the back of their Santa Cruz Avenue property that will exit onto Louise Street.

Exit interviews (continued from page 5)

and I don’t want that to happen to others, and the important thing for me is to be there for other people when they can’t for themselves. “When a person doesn’t support me as a friend, is fake or a bully, I can’t deal with them, and since I need (friends) in my life I have to be that person too.” Students said they were nervous going into their sessions, despite having gotten a preview of the questions and spending class time to practicing everything from proper handshakes to presentation skills. “At first I was nervous but then I realized they don’t bite,” wrote one student after an exit interview Tuesday. At the end of her interview Wednesday, Lisa said: “I like having all my accomplishments in a folder. It’s so surreal to look at what I’ve done, and I can do so much more in high school.” Interviewers cannot be current JLS parents but generally are members of the community — in many cases friends or family of JLS teachers or school district office administrators who pitch in. Among Wednesday’s interviewers were school district nurse Linda Lenoir, former Palo Alto school board member Ray Bacchetti, Assistant Superintendent Scott Bowers and John Saukitoga, a 2006 graduate of JLS who now works for the nonprofit Youth Community Service. Interviewer Jim Messano, a retired Lockheed-Martin engineer and father of a JLS science teacher, was interviewing for the second day in a row. “All in all, I thought for the most part (the students) were very good,” Messano said. “In the evaluation, they want us to be very upbeat.” When offering advice to students, he said he tried to make it encouraging. “I tried to reinforce the fact that whatever they don’t know now, there will be other opportunities in the future,” he said. “As a retiree, if I weren’t doing this I’d be working in the garden or something.” Ofek, who has been principal at JLS since 2009, said the practice of exit interviews began under the leadership of Joseph Di Salvo, principal from 2001 until 2005. He is now an elected member of the Santa Clara County Board of Education, representing San Jose. Di Salvo said he first tried exit interviews at Thomas Russell Middle School in Milpitas, where he was principal for six years before coming to JLS. The California Department of Education in the 1990s was promoting the idea of “student-led interviews,” which he implemented at Russell and brought to JLS, Di Salvo said. “I’m so glad this program is still alive today,” he said. “It was very successful when I was there.” Ofek credited JLS teachers for laying the groundwork for the student portfolios. The program has been tweaked over the years

based on suggestions from teachers, interviewers and students. “Maybe the kids don’t realize it but the staff certainly does — this all begins on day one of sixth grade,” she said. “Every department prepares, and it all leads up

to this one culminating event. “We’re trying to give the students a positive experience about two things: being interviewed and being reflective about their growth over time at JLS. We really believe in this.” N

A statewide organization for rentersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights has filed a Public Records Act request with the City of East Palo Alto after an audit of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rent Stabilization Program prompted the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly regarded manager to resign. Attorneys for Tenants Together filed the request to City Attorney John Nagel on May 6. The request asks for documents between June 1, 2012, and May 1, 2014, related to the audit, including any communications by City Manager Magda Gonzalez. Gonzalez hired an outside consultant to conduct the audit, which was one of four program audits intended to increase efficiency, Gonzalez has said. The rent-program audit spotlighted manager Carol Lamont, although she was not directly named, and criticized her for â&#x20AC;&#x153;a perceived lack of neutralityâ&#x20AC;? against landlords. Since Lamont announced her resignation to the rent board on March 12, board members and lawyers for tenantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights have blasted the audit as a targeted attack on Lamont. She is a longtime housing professional who worked for the San Francisco Foundation and on federal Housing and Urban Development programs before administering East Palo Altoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent-stabilization program. Gonzalez has said the audit is part of an overall plan to make city programs better. Leah Simon-Weisberg, legal director of Tenants Together, said she is concerned that the lopsided audit might be the first salvo to knock the legs out from under the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent-stabilization ordinance, which protects residents against exorbitant rent increases and provides both tenants and landlords with a platform for grievances. She added she hopes the public records request will reveal what, if any, influence landlords may have had in the auditâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launching or its outcome. N â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sue Dremann

Palo Alto man sentenced to year in jail for attack A 22-year-old Palo Alto man was sentenced to one year in San Mateo County jail on Friday, May 9, after having pleaded no contest to felony charges of auto burglary and assault of a 13-year-old Portola Valley boy with a baseball bat in April 2013. Alexander Stefan Dombovic, who has been and remains out of custody on $50,000 bail, is to report to jail on June 21 to begin serving his sentence, according to a report by Bay City News Service. He was also ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution and serve three years of probation. The string of incidents that led to his arrest began at around 10 p.m. on a Sunday night, April 21, 2013, according to accounts by prosecutors and Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office deputies. The Portola Valley boy had been reading in his bedroom when he heard a car come down the driveway of his home and park near his room. He went out to see what was going on and said he saw a man rummaging through his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle. The boy asked the man what he was doing, and the man allegedly yelled at him and charged at him with an aluminum baseball bat, hitting him in the shoulder. The man then fled in a gold Toyota SUV. Deputies were in the area to respond to a nearby car burglary and saw an SUV driving on the wrong side of the road with its lights off. The deputies swerved to avoid the vehicle and a chase ensued. Dombovic was arrested after he lost control of his vehicle and plunged down an embankment.

isa Hendrickson, president and CEO for the past 15 years of Avenidas, the Palo Alto senior-services nonprofit, has announced she will step down as the agency’s leader to focus on Avenidas’ plans for the future. Those plans include the hopeful expansion of the nonprofit’s Bryant Street center in downtown Palo Alto and ensuring that the 45-year-old organization “will meet the needs of the next generation,” she said in an announcement. “I’m excited that I will continue working at Avenidas, just in a different capacity,” she stated. During her tenure, the organization built the Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center for seniors in Mountain View, which provides both an adult day care program and a separate day health program for those needing medical and other assistance. The center’s opening in 2005, she said, was one of the highlights of her years at Avenidas. “It was a thrill to build that special-purpose building,” she told the Weekly.

used, a plan that was added by staff as an “alternative recommendation” at the behest of the measure’s supporters. Even after the council’s vote endorsing their wishes, Measure E supporters remained concerned that the city is moving too slowly on implementing voters’ vision for local processing of yard trimmings. Opponents of the measure, a group that includes some of the city’s leading conservationists, lobbied for the staff’s original recommendation, which also included the four phases but which was less explicit on how to treat yard trimmings and did not mention the Measure E site. In addition to approving the four-phase approach brought forward by staff, the council also agreed to scrap all three proposals that the city received earlier this year from the private sector for treating Palo Alto’s organic waste. Though Public Works officials are still preparing to solicit privatesector proposals, the intent now is to have the city own and operate the new waste-to-energy plant.

alo Alto’s convoluted and contentious debate over organic waste trudged toward a hard-won compromise Monday night when city officials adopted a new road map for processing local sewage sludge, food scraps and yard trimmings. The City Council voted 7-2, with Karen Holman and Greg Schmid dissenting, to approve a four-phase approach recommended by Public Works staff, with sewage sludge designated as the highest priority, followed by food scraps and yard trimmings. In a nod to proponents of building a new waste-to-energy plant at Byxbee Park, the vote also explicitly gives preference for compost operations located at the Bayland site that voters “undedicated” in 2011 when they passed Measure E. The vast majority of the plan has the support of both sides of the city’s green debate. Both agree that the city needs to retire its outdated and polluting incinerators and both would like to see food scraps turned into electricity. The glaring point of dispute on Monday was over composting — mainly, the staff’s recommendation that the Measure E site be

dent that the new approach will both give the city more control and save money. A revised cost analysis pegs the cost of the city’s proposed four-step “Organics Facilities Plan” at $89.1 million over 20 years. Proposals from the two vendors that wanted to build an anaerobic-digestion plant for the city were $97 million (from the firm Harvest Power) and $107 million (from We Generation). The third vendor, Synagro, had a proposal with an estimated cost of $98.7 million, though it planned to export all three waste streams, a notion that was widely panned as being out of step with the city’s desire to keep operations local. “It would be a good idea to retest the market now,” Bobel said Monday. “Now that we have a new end point, the Organics Facilities Plan, we have narrowed down what we’re looking at.” Bobel also noted that wet anaerobic digestion — as opposed to dry anaerobic digestion — is a technology that is widely in use across the country and could be an option in Palo Alto. In most cases, public agencies are running

On June 5, 2001, the voters approved Measure D, a special parcel tax assessment of $293 per parcel for five years. On June 7, 2005, voters approved an increase to $493 per parcel and extended the tax through the 2010-11 tax year. On May 4, 2010, voters approved an increase to $589 for six years beginning as of July 1, 2010, with annual two percent escalation adjustments. The funds are used to attract and retain qualified and experienced teachers and school employees, maintain educational programs that enhance student achievement, and reduce the size targeted classes. A parcel is defined as any unit of land in the District that receives a separate tax bill from the Santa Clara County Tax Assessor’s Office. An exemption is available for any senior citizen who owns and occupies as a principal residence a parcel, and applies to the District for an exemption. For the 2014-15 tax year, a senior citizen is defined as a person 65 years of age and older by June 30, 2015. Please apply for the exemption by May 31, 2014. If you were exempt from paying the PAUSD parcel tax for the 2013-14 tax year, you should have received an exemption renewal letter in early April.

the wet-digestion operation. The councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote directs staff to begin work on a new facility at the regional water-treatment plant (known as a dewatering and truck haul-out facility) that would allow the city to retire its sludgeburning incinerators. The second component of the new approach will focus on building the anaerobic digester, a plant that will process local sewage and convert it into electricity. The third step would create a food-preprocessing facility that would allow Palo Alto to add food into the mix to generate more electricity. The final step would be to solve the yard-trimmings dilemma that

has stumped city officials since 2012, when Palo Alto shut down its landfill at Byxbee Park, putting an end to the local compost operation. For Councilman Larry Klein, the decision to support the revised staff recommendation, which explicitly cites the Measure E site, was a simple one. The council, he said, needs to respect the will of the voters, 65 percent of whom supported undedicating a 10-acre portion of Byxbee Park (staff now believes only 3.8 acres of the site would actually be needed). The voters, he said, have sent â&#x20AC;&#x153;a very clear message.â&#x20AC;? Holman and Schmid both sided with the conservationist camp, which opposes the use of Byxbee Park for a new waste-treatment plant. Holman pointed out that while Measure E makes the land available for the plant, it does not

mandate that such a facility be built. That decision should still be based on factors like financial and environmental benefits, she said. Given that the city has yet to do a full environmental analysis of a local plant, these benefits remain unknown. Holman and Schmid, who had both opposed Measure E, advocated going along with the original staff recommendation. Schmid said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;enthusiastically supportsâ&#x20AC;? pursuing an anaerobic digester for sewage sludge and food scraps but was more cautious on the subject of yard-scraps composting. Holman agreed and said composting can be addressed later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get going with the wastewater, the incinerator â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge polluter,â&#x20AC;? Holman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can address the composting issue as new technologies emerge and we adopt composting at-home solutions.â&#x20AC;? The rest of the council, however, sided with the broader group known as the Palo Alto Green Energy (PAGE) Initiative, which spearheaded Measure E with the intent of keeping composting local. Walt Hays, one of the leaders of the Measure E group, beseeched the council to get going on constructing the new technology, including a new composting facility. A tentative timeline that city staff first unveiled on April 29 showed the composting facility opening between 2020 and 2022, far later than many had hoped. Enid Pearson, a former councilwoman and a renowned conservationist, took the opposite view and asked the council to eschew politics and to proceed cautiously on composting solutions. Yard trimmings, she said, are a very small part of the overall garbage stream. The council should not rush to commit Measure E land but rather take â&#x20AC;&#x153;the long view.â&#x20AC;? Her side, however, was outnumbered both in the audience and on the council. The council Monday also endorsed Councilman Greg Scharffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal directing staff to â&#x20AC;&#x153;expedite the process to the extent possible.â&#x20AC;? N

eeking to get ahead of an expected and desired electric-vehicle revolution, Palo Alto officials on Tuesday endorsed a new law that requires builders of new developments to go along for the ride. The City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Policy and Services Committee unanimously recommended that the full council approve an ordinance that would require new commercial buildings, multi-family residential developments and hotels to include parking spaces that accommodate electric vehicles. These accommodations will come in three tiers: an actual Level 2 charger; an outlet that makes it easy to plug in a charger; and a conduit (also known as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;racewayâ&#x20AC;?) that could accommodate future installation of an outlet and charging equipment. Exact requirements would vary by development type. Mutifamily complexes would have to install chargers at 5 percent of their guest parking spots. They would also be required to supply a charger-ready outlet for each unit in the development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone that rents or owns a condo has the ability to park and charge their electric vehicle,â&#x20AC;? Development Services Director Peter Pirnejad said of the new ordinance. A staff report on the new requirements includes various scenarios based on factors such as deed restrictions and whether or not parking is attached to the dwelling unit. These factors would determine how many parking spots would have to be charger-ready and how many would merely have to include conduits. Under the proposed ordinance, many hotels would be required to have chargers installed at 10 percent of their parking spaces and have conduits at 20 percent. Other types of commercial development would be required to install chargers at 5 percent of spaces and conduits at 20 percent. The new ordinance, which is scheduled to be considered by the full council on June 16, follows in the footsteps of a law that the council passed last year, which requires new single-family developments to provide the necessary circuitry to accommodate future installation of chargers. But the drive toward the new ordinance is not being fueled solely by local initiative.

-"*!'+(!)& &($&( &%*+(#&&( %"&&) &.(,"*$"%)&$&(

A proposed Palo Alto ordinance would require all new commercial buildings, multi-family residential developments and hotels to have parking spaces, such as this one at the Stanford Shopping Center, where electric cars could re-charge. For the sake of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air quality, Gov. Jerry Brown in March 2012 directed the state government to actively support zero-emission vehicles, with the goal of having 1.5 million of them on the roads by 2025, a Palo Alto planning-staff report notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to meet this goal and in order for electric vehicles to proliferate, it is important that early consumers have a positive experience and that facilities be readily available to provide convenient charging stations for the electric vehicles,â&#x20AC;? the report states. The new ordinance will come with a cost to developers, though â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as much as tens of thousands of dollars per project. The price tags will vary widely, based on the types of chargers developers want to install (â&#x20AC;&#x153;smartâ&#x20AC;? chargers that provide information about energy use typically cost more) and economies of scale. Staff estimates that providing the needed circuitry would cost in the ballpark of $3,000 per space; adding equipment to make the space charger-ready would raise the cost to about $4,000; and having an actual plug installed would cost about $6,000. The council expressed some concerns about these figures, with Greg Schmid wondering whether the new law would create another burden for potential providers of affordable housing. Staff estimates that a 30-unit, 30,000-square-foot multi-family apartment building would have to spend between $68,000 and $89,000 (the lower cost corresponds to buildings with attached parking). A 30,000-square-foot commercial building would cost an added $53,000. Councilman Larry Klein noted that given the cost of constructing a new development, including the purchase of land, the burden would add roughly 0.5 percent to the total

price tag. Pirnejad also noted that these costs could be recovered by providers of charging stations. Yet cost recovery might not be an option in the near term. One stipulation that the committee added at the behest of Councilman Greg Scharff is that the driver should be able to charge a vehicle at these stations without being charged for the privilege. Plugging in should be free at least for the first few years, Scharff said. Councilman Larry Klein was reluctant to set such a requirement and suggested letting the market dictate the price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market may well shift, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we have any role to play in the market,â&#x20AC;? Klein said. Yet he ultimately went along with Scharff, who noted that the entire purpose of the ordinance is to spur the demand for electric vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market driven, we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be doing anything at all,â&#x20AC;? said Scharff, a Tesla driver who as mayor last year chose the high-end electric-vehicle companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palo Alto headquarters as the setting for his â&#x20AC;&#x153;State of the Cityâ&#x20AC;? speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do is encourage a certain policy and create the infrastructure in which charging electric vehicles is an easy and convenient approach.â&#x20AC;? Schmid also said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;skepticalâ&#x20AC;? about whether the city has the authority to mandate that charges be provided for free. Otherwise, he said he was happy with the new law and voted to go along with it. The committee also mandated that the ordinance return to the council for a review in three years, at which time the issue of free charging could be revisited. Despite a few reservations, all four council members, including Chair Gail Price, lauded the new law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased our city is moving ahead and that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the cutting edge of this,â&#x20AC;? Klein said. N

plan is still in the concept phase, Hendrickson said, the intent is to expand the historic Bryant Street building where the nonprofit offers activities such as yoga, memoirwriting and ukulele jam sessions. But there will be hurdles, she said. The Spanish Colonial Revival building, once the city’s police station, is 87 years old and was designed by famed local architect Birge Clark. “We need to respect the historic characteristics of the building,” she Lisa said. In addition, Hendrickson it is owned by the City of Palo Alto, not the nonprofit. Avenidas will need to secure a new and longer lease, as the current one will expire in 14 years — not enough time to justify the investment of an expansion, she said. But the organization is dedicated to the expansion project. “We feel compelled to pursue it because one-third of all Palo Altans are 55 and older. We’re bursting at the seams here,” she said. The modernized space needs to be attractive to Baby Boomers, she added. The Avenidas board of directors has hired executive search firm m/Oppenheim Associates to launch a national search for a new CEO for the agency, which has an operating budget of $4 million. Hendrickson said she expected it could take up to three months to find her successor but that whoever takes over will find the organization in good shape. “The person who comes in is going to be in a great position to

participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school.” The policy recommended Tuesday was at least the fourth such proposal from Skelly since December 2012. In other business Tuesday, the committee appeared stymied on a proposed discipline policy that would prohibit teachers from restricting a student’s recess time “unless the safety and health of the student or other students are at risk.” The draft was written in response to Emberling’s concern about reports she has received from parents that too often recess is taken away as a disciplinary measure against students — particularly special-needs children who have gotten into trouble for behavior that has been misinterpreted. In many of those cases, Emberling said, time to play outside is exactly what the child needs as a way to “reset or regroup.” Dome said the proposal could have unintended consequences, particularly in middle schools and high schools, of prohibiting lunchtime meetings needed to re-

solve important issues. Teri Baldwin, president of the teachers union Palo Alto Educators Association, said teachers sometimes need to keep students in from recess to deal with pressing issues. “Sometimes an incident might happen right before recess and it is an incident that we, as teachers, need to address right away,” Baldwin said. “That might be a time where we keep a student in from recess, to speak with them about the incident. It might not have anything to do with their health and safety or the health and safety of other students.” Committee members agreed that the proposed discipline policy needed further vetting and redrafting. But they easily gave thumbs up to a proposed conduct policy requiring that students’ cell phones be turned off during class except when being used for a valid instructional or other school-related purpose as determined by the teacher.

AROUND THE BLOCK

IN THE FIX ... The latest fix-it workshop, Repair Cafe, will take place on June 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Museum of American Heritage, 351 Homer Ave., Palo Alto. Volunteers team up with residents to fix broken stuff instead of tossing items into the landfill or unnecessarily spending money on new appliances when all that’s needed is a new cord. Attendees will learn valuable fixing skills, how to diagnose problems and to properly take apart and put things back together again. Bikes, clothing, small appliances, lamps, mechanical items, small furniture and jewelry are all welcome candidates, organizers said. CURBING MOSQUITOES ... Residents in Crescent Park were wondering earlier this week why the City of Palo Alto was digging up the curbs along Hamilton Avenue. According to city staff, the city must fix all curbs and driveways as part of its pavement repairs where water is likely to pond in the roadway. Ponds cause road deterioration and also allow mosquitoes to breed, according to Murdo Nicolson, city associate engineer. N

They carefully swished their nearly invisible finds into water in a plastic basin. Tiny wriggling larva held fast to the plastic with suction-cup bottoms; swimmers half the length of a pinkie fingernail propelled with oar-like strokes. These lilliputian creatures provided a wealth of information about the creek’s health last Friday, May 9. The presence or absence of the insects could indicate if something is afoul upstream — pesticide runoff from neighboring lawns or illegally dumped cement, for example, said leaders of a creekmonitoring workshop. Thirteen people ranging in age from single-digits to their 70s tested the creek shallows with thermometers, probes and test tubes as part of the Acterra Stewardship Program. The monitoring workshop coincided with the World Water Monitoring Challenge, which encouraged communities to keep track of the health of local waterways and to enter the information into a database. Palo Alto’s Matadero Creek is a prime candidate for monitoring. Winding along Page Mill Road, it traverses many different terrains. It comes down from the Santa Cruz Mountains and crosses into the flatland neighborhoods of Green Acres and Barron Park. It runs through Bol Park and the Ventura and Midtown neighborhoods before emptying into the Palo Alto Baylands near the Emily Renzel Wetlands and into San Francisco Bay. Along the way, it can pick up pollutants and trash that impact insects, plants and wildlife. At times, fish and other creatures have suddenly died off in the creek, with populations taking decades to recover, according to scientists. Matadero’s name alludes to its history. Called the Arroyo del Matadero, or slaughtering place, it was the site of a Spanish ranch in the 1830s and 1840s. In more recent times, it was subject to a chemical cleanup from the Superfund cleanup Hillview-Porter site in Stanford Research Park in 1994. A 1982 wheelchaircleaner spill from the Palo Alto VA Healthcare System caused a die-off of tree frogs that took 20

GETTING INTO THE SWIM OF THINGS ... The Eichler Swim and Tennis Club will be celebrating a grand opening of its renovated pool on June 1 at 3935 Louis Road in Palo Alto. The long-term project, which was funded by club members through an assessment, includes complete replacement of the cement deck, resurfacing of the main pool, construction of a new wading pool, and infrastructure improvements, such as drainage, water and electrical work. The work began in December 2013.

ENVIRONMENT

A volunteer checks the health of the water in Palo Alto’s Matadero Creek on May 2. years to rebound, according to longtime residents. Then 40 gallons of water containing copper and nickel leaked into a storm drain and the creek from Communications and Power Industries (CPI) in 2008. The creek earned the dubious honor of being on Save The Bay’s list of the top 23 trashiest waterways in the Bay Area that same year. In 2010, 25 gallons of white roofing material washed into the creek from a Xerox/VMWare building after a rainstorm. The most recent assault on the creek’s health occurred after motor oil dumped on the creek bank went under the soil surface on Stanford land, Acterra Senior Ecologist Claire Elliott said. But despite all of those environmental attacks, the creek has showed a remarkable ability to recover. During the monitoring event, Elliott and the resident volunteers tested the water for salt content, oxygen levels, temperature and turbidity — murki-

ness that is a detriment to fish finding food — and they looked for telltale critters. Stonefly and mayfly larvae are sensitive to pollution; black flies tolerate pollution , she said. “What lives in the creek tells us a lot about the water quality. If there are only slugs and snails, and worms that are tolerant to pollution, then you know there’s a problem,” she added. Scuds — tiny crustaceans — are somewhat tolerant to pollution. The volunteers found them during their monitoring that day, along with stoneflies and mayflies. The latter two are a good sign. Their presence showed the creek was clean, she said. Simran Kadadi, 12, a Challenger School student, used a conductivity meter to test the water’s ability to pass an electrical current. Conductivity in water is affected by inorganic dissolved solids such as chloride, sulfate, sodium and calcium. Salts, for example, are harmful in large

quantities to freshwater creatures, Elliott said. Conductivity can also indicate the geology of a creek or stream, she added. Waterways running through granite bedrock have a lower conductivity than those flowing through limestone and clay. But high-conductivity readings can also indicate industrial pollution or runoff from streets and parking lots, she said. An oil spill can also lower conductivity, indicating the presence of pollutants. Kadadi added a chemical to a water sample she captured in a test tube. Depending on the water color change, the reading will tell her whether the water has low or high oxygen levels. Low oxygen is harmful to fish and other oxygen-using creatures, but overly high levels can also be harmful, Elliott said. All of the readings taken last week indicated this location in Matadero Creek was clean. But vigilance is important, Elliott said. Acterra scientists and volunteers will test the location and others each month. On Friday, volunteers emptied another catch from their net into the water basin, spying a water worm. They didn’t find any hatchlings of the endangered steelhead trout nor any tadpoles or other vertebrates. Just then, Jake Murphrey of the AmeriCorps and the Civilian Conservation Corps Watershed Stewards Project, lifted a heavy rock in the gravelly shallows and fished out a crawdad. The small green lobster-like creature wriggled its claws in Murphrey’s grasp. It was the largest creature the group found that day and another sign of the Matadero’s health. Acterra monitors six creeks each month. Trained volunteers work on Matadero, Barron and Adobe creeks. Three other creekmonitoring events are open to new members of the public two times each month at San Francisquito, Stevens and Permanente creeks. To sign up for a creek-monitoring event, residents can visit www. acterra.org and follow the link to Eventbrite. In addition, National River Cleanup Day takes place on May 17.

the sum would range from $20,000 to $30,600. The Jissers were to partially subsidize rent increases, at 40 percent, at new locations for 12 months. Wednesday’s amendment pledged a 100 percent subsidy. On Monday, Nanda defended the Jissers, characterizing the family as decent property owners well within their legal right to close the park. “The park is and always has been private property. It is the legal right of a private property owner in California and specifically a mobile-home park owner ... to close, convert or cease the operation of a mobile-home park. The park owner has the right to close the park,” she said. She pointed to the average rent of spaces at Buena Vista — $685 per month — and to the fact that the Jissers raised rents once in 2008 and again in 2010, effective Jan. 1, 2011, and have not since. “Thus, for a period of 29 months, the park owner has not raised rents on a park-wide basis,” she said. “Certain space rents have been increased when there’s been a vacancy, per the terms of the rent-control ordinance. I would ask how many other rental properties, whether they be apartments in Palo Alto or other mobile-home parks, have not raised rents in 29 months.” But speaker after speaker on Tuesday and Wednesday spoke against the park closure, hammering on two main points: one, that housing costs Bay Area-wide are so high that the benefits proposed by the Jissers would not come close to compensating the residents for their losses; and two, that the plan does not provide comparable compensation, which stretches beyond financial reimbursement. If the

park closes, residents said, they would have to move so far away to find affordable housing that they would lose jobs, homes, access to comparable local schools and their community. A supporter of Buena Vista residents, Cybele LoVuolo-Bhushan, said Wednesday the relocationplan appraiser low-balled the value of the residents’ mobile homes, citing two examples. In one case, the appraiser valued a home at about $19,000, but an outside appraiser valued it at $50,000. A second home was valued at about $28,000 by the report appraiser, but the second appraiser said it is worth $60,000. Other supporters told Labadie the relocation amounts do not take the area’s hyperinflation into consideration. A low-end compensation estimate per family should start at $200,000 and should include an inflationary index, some said. Nanda said Wednesday’s revised offer came in response to residents’ testimonies. A reappraisal of the mobile-home value within six months of relocation is a fairly common provision in conversion ordinances, but it was not written into Palo Alto’s, she said. Winter Dellenbach, founder of the group Friends of Buena Vista, said the changes throw confusion into the situation. The revisions were not part of what was considered by Labadie during the threeday hearing, and residents and attorneys did not have the opportunity to address their adequacy. The changes’ impact on the City Council’s February ruling on the RIR is also a question, she said. The city only found the report complete after four iterations, but the council did not vote on the latest revisions, she said. “There’s no way of quantifying what is being offered,” she said.

At the hearing, attorneys for both sides called expert witnesses. Kenneth Baar, an attorney who has worked on housing-policy issues and served as a consultant to numerous cities on mobile-homepark issues, testified on behalf of the residents. He countered Nanda’s assertion that the Jissers kept rent low at Buena Vista. The $685 per month average is, indeed, lower than average mobile-home-park rent levels, but Buena Vista is a denserthan-average park, with 25 spaces per acre, he said. A density of 12.5 spaces per acre is more common. “We could debate about the specific numbers or details, but there’s such a distance between what is being proposed and what is needed to move within this area that there’s no way the proposed mitigation is going to provide these people with replacement housing in just about every case, or the vast majority of cases,” Baar said. With the hearing concluded, attorneys for both sides will now submit opposing briefs and additional expert reports for and against closing the 60-plus-year-old park. Labadie set a June 16 deadline for the Jissers’ attorneys and a July 16 deadline for the residents’ attorneys’ briefs. The Jissers would then have a week to respond. Labadie said he will review the materials and issue a preliminary ruling about a month later. Lawyers from both sides will then offer rebuttal arguments in writing, after which Labadie will issue a final decision. Either side could appeal the ruling to the Palo Alto City Council, he said. N

OBITUARY

Jasmine Sophia Tayabas Holm Jasmine Sophia Tayabas Holm died in Sacramento on April 24. She had suffered a brain hemorrhage while running with her beloved dogs at a dog park near her home. Jasmine was 36. Jasmine was a bright spirit with a kind and loving heart, and she truly had the best laugh on the planet. Her joy in life was infectious. She drew people to her with her friendliness and vulnerability and true zest for life. Everything was an event for her, frequently an event that required a special Jasmine note card stuffed with glitter. Jasmine was born in San Francisco on May 3, 1977. She grew up in Palo Alto, attending Ohlone, Jane Lathrop Stanford and Palo Alto High schools, graduating with honors. While at Paly, Jasmine was a cheerleader and spent a summer working in Germany in order to perfect her newest language, German. Jasmine also volunteered at Webb Ranch, working with special needs children in a horse-riding therapy program. As the artistic director of a local day care center, she designed imaginative playground structures and games for preschoolers. Jasmine had a degree in Classical Studies from the University of Washington in Seattle. She was especially proud of awards she won for her photography, a lifelong passion. Jasmine loved camping – especially in Big Sur and Yosemite’s Tuolumne Meadows, and along the American River. Her first big camping trip included backpacking in the Trinity Alps with her family. A natural athlete, she spent her free time this past winter joyously snowboarding at Lake Tahoe. She also loved traveling. She took time off from college to live with her parents in France for several months, spending time in Paris and Berlin and various destinations in between. Her last semester in college was spent studying in Rome. Her senior year in college, Jasmine met her future husband, Brian Holm. They traveled as much as possible. Their first trip was to Bali, and eventually they ended up living in Guam. They divorced in 2013 but remained close friends. Jasmine’s first stop after the divorce was Rome, of course, where she studied Italian for several months before returning to California. To her dismay, her Italian never caught up to her German and Spanish. Jasmine’s jobs included managing restaurants, installation of art at galleries, project engineer at a major construction company, cheese buyer, and – her favorite – interior designer. She had a great eye for form and color, and had an enviable collection of art and art books. Her extensive collection of fiction and non-fiction also was impressive. Jasmine is survived by her parents, Cris Oppenheimer and Rainer Pitthan of Palo Alto; her sister Stefanie Pitthan of Arvada, CO; her niece Viola Garcia of Arvada, CO; her half-brother Jake Collison of Fairfax, CA; and her ex-husband Brian Holm of Lanai City, HI. Her survivors also include many aunts and uncles, especially Juanita Tayabas and Jerry Nerbovig of Sacramento; also Dean (Mary) Crist of Old Lyme, CT; Don (Susan) Crist of Farmington, CT; and Freya Pitthan-Bauer of Munich, Germany. Also many first cousins, including Jason (Karena) Deason of Vancouver, WA; Bill (Cyndi) Crist of San Antonio, TX; Allison (Justin) Richardell of Tucson, AZ; and Anna Bauer of Ober Süßbach, Germany. Her family and many friends will miss her greatly. A memorial service for family and close friends will be held this summer. PA I D

Editorial Re-elect Sheriff Smith While Laurie Smith has her flaws, union-backed challenger would not be an improvement

C

alifornia’s system of electing county sheriffs, especially in metropolitan areas, does not generally serve the public well. Santa Clara County is a good example of this, where most of the votes cast are from voters in cities served by local police departments and where the only interest in the sheriff is to make sure the jails are running smoothly and the courts are secure. The sheriff’s office is responsible for law enforcement in all unincorporated county lands (except for Stanford, where a unique arrangement delegates authority to the University’s own private police force), plus three smaller cities (Los Altos Hills, Saratoga and Cupertino), which contract with the sheriff for police services. The current campaign being waged by retired sheriff’s captain Kevin Jensen against Sheriff Smith demonstrates why a better system would be for county boards of supervisors to hire a sheriff rather than having them elected. Through mailings, robo phone calls and anonymous blog postings, Jensen and his supporters are slinging lots of accusations against Smith with little substance to back them up. They have cherry-picked and distorted some inartfully handled incidents during Smith’s 12 years in office, but their overriding argument is that deputies don’t like her or her management style and believe she lacks “vision” for the department. Not surprisingly, this criticism won Jensen the backing and financial support of the deputy sheriffs’ union and the union of correctional officers, as well as most of the unions of city police departments and a contingent of retired police chiefs, including former Palo Alto chief Lynn Johnson. Smith enjoys the support and respect of all five county supervisors, including Joe Simitian, and a long list of elected officials. Perhaps most significant is the fact she has been endorsed by almost every councilmember in the three cities that contract with the sheriff for police services, in other words, her customers. With no one other than deputy sheriffs complaining about Smith’s management abilities, the public has little reason to turn Smith out of office. The county supervisors who approve her budget and most closely monitor her work and the cities that directly receive services from her department agree she is doing a good, competent job. Jensen, who retired last year at age 50 after 28 years in the department, is able to draw the maximum pension of approximately $150,000 a year. The sheriff earns roughly $240,000 a year. Jensen has had a long and distinguished career with the sheriff’s department, but we are uncomfortable with his campaign tactics, union backing and distorted criticisms of the incumbent. And we find little to fault in Smith’s tenure except for her occasional missteps that stem more from a lack of political polish and public communication skills than from a deficiency in her management ability. We recommend the re-election of Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith.

Yes on Prop. 42

lthough Proposition 42 faces only token opposition, its passage is critically important to fix a problem that threatens the transparency of local government operations in California. The measure, approved without a dissenting vote by both the state Assembly and Senate, will amend the Constitution to make local governments responsible for the costs of making their official documents available to the public. Under current law, because complying with the Public Records Act is considered a state mandate, the state must reimburse local governments for their costs. While many, if not most, local agencies don’t bother to seek reimbursement because the costs are so small, the reimbursement process has led to confusion and, recently, to a brief suspension of the law due to the state financial situation. Prop. 42 makes clear that cost should never be a factor in whether local governments comply with the Public Records Act. As we have seen many times locally, the Public Records Act is an essential tool to ensure public accountability and sunshine on the workings of government. We urge a “yes” vote on Proposition 42.

Spectrum Editorials, letters and opinions

Greedy for labor Editor, The “Immigrant Valley” (4/24/14) article by Elena Kadvany is one-sided and on many important aspects, inaccurate. First, Intel was founded by Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore. Budapest-born Andy Grove was an early employee and later chairman, but not a founder. Second, Moscow-born Sergey Brin accompanied his parents who left the Soviet Union with him in the late 1970s when he was 6. Maybe there was some entrepreneurial magic in breathing Moscow air at birth, but his formative years and education were entirely in the U.S. The origins of many Silicon Valley firms trace back to people like Terman, Hewlett, Packard, Varian Brothers, Rock, et al., who were all Americans. The concept that the valley now needs a massive influx of H-1B visa holders (who are not technically immigrants) is a relatively recent concept. U.C. Davis computer science professor Prof. Norm Matloff (web search on Matloff H-1B), who has written extensively on this subject, says, “The H-1B work visa is fundamentally about cheap, de facto indentured labor.” The sidebar in the article on immigration lawyers reminds one of Ambrose Bierce’s definition of a lawyer: “one skilled in the circumvention of the law.” U.S. immigration law is complex and that is exactly the way such lawyers want it, allowing lucrative billings for its circumvention. As for the fine European H-1B hopefuls in the article from Germany, Belgium and Poland, it is unfortunate those economies don’t afford them the opportunities they seek. But U.S. citizens are under no obligation to step aside to accommodate them or to satiate Google’s, Yahoo’s, Microsoft’s or Facebook’s greedy clamoring for cheap labor.

Hazardous and ugly Editor, Shaila Sadrozinski’s commentary in Monday’s Post, “Parking hazard,” while a tad overdramatized, certainly reached a sympathetic “ear.” Ms. Sadrozinski correctly pointed out that the layout of the new Grocery Outlet is, or can be, hazardous. My only complaint about the layout is simply that I don’t like it. OK, I’ll admit that my opinion might — correctly — not be viewed as a valid one. But wait — there’s more!

I live a few blocks from the Grocery Outlet, but Miki’s, it’s predecessor, posed the same crummy layout, so I didn’t have much hope for Miki’s successor. Miki’s demise was attributed to its overreach; that is, our community didn’t need another high-end grocery store, therefore we didn’t patronize Miki’s. Nah — it was the butted-up-tothe-street layout of the building, and the “alleyway” entrance that we were required to navigate to gain access to the store — that’s what did in Miki’s. I hope that our community will recognize that architecture that jams buildings up against the street is impractical, ugly and unacceptable. Ruben Contreras Waverley Street, Palo Alto

Grand Boulevard Editor, What a crock! Vertical stack and pack ... public transport for the masses (if you’re young and frisky and don’t require a bench for sitting and waiting for the bus to come) ... God help you if some thug attacks you while en route ... But cities love it cause it’s a money maker for them ... ABAG — you have done us wrong! Barbara Goodwin Middlefield Road, Mountain View

Sending dead trees Editor, If the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is serious about passing Measure AA on June 3, they and their political associates should stop spending money on sending us dead trees (in the form of multiple political mailers). Instead, convene an emergency meeting and vote to eliminate their own compensation, including health benefits, effective immediately. This would demonstrate their commitment to fiscal prudence. I will hold onto my ballot until May 20, see if they respond. Margaret Fruth El Camino Way, Palo Alto

Protecting wrong party Editor, I find it disturbing that PAUSD would simply move a teacher, with “substantiated” sexual harassment allegations against him, from one school to another. I find it even more disturbing that he was moved from a high school to a middle school, in a special education environment, where younger students might not be as able to stand up for themselves and are less aware of boundaries. PAUSD is sheltering and protecting the wrong party. Suzanne Jacobs South Court, Palo Alto

Off Deadline Approaching 40 years, Palo Alto paramedics program may charge fees by Jay Thorwaldson his fall, the Palo Alto Fi re Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paramedics program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; officially the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will observe its 40th anniversary. And maybe launch hefty costrecovery fees. The growth of the program is actually changing the focus of the entire department into something that could be called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fire and medical servicesâ&#x20AC;? department, or some catchier name. Could one say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of a little paramedics program that ate the fire department? The nature of calls reflects that: Of more than 8,100 total calls (including many false alarms and a few major fires), about 4,700 were EMS calls. Of those 4,700, the city was able to charge an EMS treat-and-transport fee for about 3,500, roughly 75 percent. The others were for first-responder or no-transport calls, hence no charge. Non-residents accounted for about 40 percent of those calls in 2013, Fire Chief Eric Nickel reported. The paramedic programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth-decade birthday will fall in a year that is seeing perhaps the greatest change in health care (emergency and otherwise) in American history. The changes began with the World War II discovery of penicillin and modern treatment systems, and continued in the 1970s-1980s era of expensive, high-tech imaging and treatment equipment.

T

But with Obamacare rolling out, emphasizing more cost-effective ways of delivering care, there is an emerging opportunity for some cost recovery for non-transport paramedic care, Chief Nickel believes. He raised the fee question May 6 in a brief report to the City Council, seeking an OK to conduct a public-outreach program for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;First Responder Feeâ&#x20AC;? and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Treat and No Transport Fee.â&#x20AC;? He will report back to the council with specifics about fees and potential revenues. An initial estimate of the size of the fees puts them into the $350 to $450 range, but most or all of that might be covered by a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health insurance, Nickel said. The plan evoked a barrage of online Town Square forum posts raising objections about double-taxation and asking if the city would soon be charging for fire, rescue and other emergency calls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the dread â&#x20AC;&#x153;camelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nose under the tentâ&#x20AC;? phenomenon. Other questions relate to what happens if someone canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the fee and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have insurance, and whether such a fee might discourage someone from calling for help when they really need it. In terms of non-medical calls, the lack of a ready reimbursement source is a disincentive, unless the city could tap into homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or renterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not considered likely. And a fire or emergency response often provides protection for a neighborhood or broader community, while a medical response primarily benefits an individual, Nickel said. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paramedics program is highly regarded by most residents and others beyond Palo Alto. Yet, expectedly, it is the target of citizen complaints about high firefighter salaries. Nickel said a comparison to

other departments shows Palo Alto salaries are a bit on the low side. And he cites intensive mandated training of about 300 hours per firefighter per year, including 24 hours of EMT training for all firefighters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; resulting in (when combined with police) a highly trained â&#x20AC;&#x153;standing army ready to respond at a momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noticeâ&#x20AC;? to emergencies. Palo Altoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paramedics program can claim credit for saving an uncountable number of lives due to quick-response times, high levels of training and close coordination with first-on-the-scene fire engine companies. The program currently operates three paramedics ambulances in addition to eight first-responder vehicles (six fire engines, a ladder truck and a seasonal engine in the foothills), all staffed by paramedics or emergency medical technicians (EMTs). Because it was one of the first fire-department-based programs with transport, it is able to serve as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ambulanceâ&#x20AC;? transport service in addition to on-the-scene treatment of illnesses, accidents and injuries. In Palo Alto a base-rate fee of $1,725 is charged for transport, but as a bundled price. Other services may have lower base rates but itemize just about every piece of equipment or bandage used to get to about the same level, Nickel said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comparable to other transport fees in Santa Clara County, which fund paramedics programs in other fire departments. Palo Alto does not charge for calls that do not need transport or when transport is refused. Other departments do. Berkeley, San Francisco, Alameda County and the Novato Fire District in the Bay Area charge such fees, along with the 16 cities and county areas that comprise the Sacramento Metro

Fire Department, Nickel noted. In Santa Clara County, World Metro Ambulance is the current contractor with exclusive operating rights under a system mandated statewide in June 1980. But Palo Altoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service level is significantly faster than the countywide service is able to achieve, Nickel noted, citing an 8-minuteor-less response in 90 percent of the calls, compared to 12 minutes countywide. The evolution of the Palo Alto Fire Department toward a possible new name got a big push in October 2012, when two consulting firms issued a report with 48 recommendations for improving operations. The city had recently hired six new paramedics and added a second full-time ambulance to its fleet (in addition to a half-time ambulance staffed by firefighters working overtime), reflecting a radical increase in medical-service calls. I have a personal interest, albeit historical, in the subject of ambulances and emergency responses. After months of research I put together a five-part series for the erstwhile Palo Alto Times, which ran in early October 1971. The series detailed a lack of training and high turnover in the private ambulance firms, with double-sourced examples. It was thanks to one Palo Alto resident, the late Joe Carleton, that the paramedics program emerged three years later. Based on the series, Carleton lobbied city officials hard, and the program resulted. He later was involved in donating engines and a paramedics van to Palo Altoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister city, Oaxaca, Mexico, acts worthy of recognition in their own right.

Emma Roberts plays April, a shy adolescent who is seduced by her school’s soccer coach, Mr. B (James Franco), in Gia Coppola’s new film, “Palo Alto,” which is based on Franco’s collection of short stories, “Palo Alto Stories.”

T

he two minutes leading into the opening credits of Gia Coppola’s atmospheric film adaptation of James Franco’s short-story collection, “Palo Alto Stories,” would be enough to give any parent pause before handing over the car keys to their teenage son or daughter. The film opens on two teenage boys, Fred and Teddy, drinking and smoking inside an early ’90s Cadillac coupe, which is parked on the top level of some nondescript garage. As the voice of legendary San Francisco Giants play-by-play announcer Jon Miller murmurs over the car radio, the two teens banter for a bit before Fred, without reason or warning, slams on the accelerator, sending the car screeching three feet forward into the parking garage’s wall. Fred howls with delight, honking the horn and proclaiming how good the senseless act of chaos

felt, as the film’s two-word title, “Palo Alto,” appears — a glowing, neon blue on top of a black background. Fred continues his celebratory fit, while Teddy appears dazed, though not shocked, by his friend’s reckless stunt. He sits there, mouth agape, unsure of what to do. It is a version of an expression Teddy will wear again and again throughout the film, as he and the rest of his peers meander from party to party, searching for answers to questions they barely even know how to ask in this dark coming-of-age tale. On a sunny day, inside a suite in San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel, the “Palo Alto” director takes questions about her debut feature film. Granddaughter to Francis Ford and the niece to Sofia, the budding filmmaker grew up surrounded by some of the biggest names ever to appear on the silver screen. She

split her youth between Southern California and her family’s vineyard in Napa. It is clear Coppola has been afforded opportunities that plenty of aspiring directors will never have — she speaks almost in passing of Franco approaching her to take on the adaptation of his short stories, because, well, of course she is close with James Franco. Still, she has said in other interviews that she is looking for no handouts and wants to find her own voice. One is inclined to believe she was not seeking to exploit her privilege when she passed on shooting the film in Palo Alto. For logistical and budgetary reasons, Coppola says, she and her crew shot everything in the suburbs outside of Los Angeles. “I would have loved to have filmed it up here, but we couldn’t afford it,” the director shrugs. All of the film’s stars were based in L.A., along with all the

other resources she needed to make the movie. In the end, though, it doesn’t matter. As Coppola explains, the feelings and themes that she sought to capture in “Palo Alto” are “universal.” “James’ book kind of pinpoints certain places in Palo Alto,” Coppola notes, referring to “Palo Alto Stories,” Franco’s collection of 12 fictional tales, which he has said were inspired by his personal experiences and those of his peers growing up in the book’s titular city. The way Coppola sees it, the book, and her film, are less about actual people and places and more about the “essence” and “growing pains” that so many people experience, in one form or another, during adolescence. “It’s really just about the emotions of being that age and using teenagers as subject matter to articulate those emotions,” she says. When describing the films that most influenced her direction of “Palo Alto,” Coppola rattles off names like “Short Cuts,” “Dazed and Confused” and “American Graffiti” — movies that are primarily preoccupied with bottling a feeling, and allowing the characters to lead the way, creating the plot as they move forward through the story. “Palo Alto Stories” struck a chord with Coppola precisely because they weren’t dependent Fred (left, Nat Wolff) and Teddy (Jack Kilmer) discuss whether they would flee or stay on the scene if they got into a car accident in “Palo Alto.” The question foreshadows events to come.

upon plot points, but were driven instead by emotional decisions. And so, when Franco asked her if she would like to adapt the collection into a film, she jumped at the chance. “I just really loved (the book),” Coppola says. “Teenagers are fascinating in general, and I felt like (Franco’s) book really articulated what it’s like to be a teenager today and was really authentic.” That authenticity shines through in Coppola’s film, beginning from the very first shot, as Fred (Nat Wolff) implores Teddy (Jack Kilmer) to reveal who he would be if it were “the olden times.” It’s an absurd question, one that would only be asked in the exact context it is posed: by someone bored, drunk and stoned. As the two discuss the question at length, talking over the Giants broadcast humming along in the background, one can’t help but think there must be some teenagers out there right now, having a similar conversation — sitting out in the middle of a field, or under a bridge somewhere, unsupervised, getting high, or drunk, or both, asking each other asinine questions and giggling, proud of their ability to be so snarky and irreverent. Ostensibly, the film is little more than a collage of moments like these. For the entirety of its 100 minutes, “Palo Alto” bounces between the overlapping story lines of several restless and confused high schoolers. There is Teddy and his wildchild buddy, Fred — as inseparable as they are polar opposites. While Teddy is reserved, unable to find a way to express his feelings for classmate April (Emma Roberts), Fred is the class clown,

Gia Coppola explores wide-eyed, wild, wasted youth in ‘Palo Alto’

C

oppola, who first read “Palo Alto Stories” shortly after graduating from Bard College, says that the stories resonated strongly with her. “I was in that place of having enough separation that I could kind of reflect on those awkward teenage years fondly,” she says, noting that Franco’s collection brought her right back to her adolescence, and gave her cause to reassess some of the more confusing chapters in her life. Now 27, Coppola is in many ways at an ideal juncture to helm a film like “Palo Alto” — old enough to bring the perspective of adulthood but not so far removed from her high school days as to have entirely forgotten the anxiety of adolescence.

“At the time (when I was a teenager), it felt like everything was such a big deal,” Coppola says. “I just remember those moments of not being able to express yourself and being really shy and the missed opportunities that are the result of you not being able to say your feelings — and not really knowing what those feelings are.” The kids of “Palo Alto” certainly get little or no help in sorting out their feelings — at least not from the film’s adult characters. Though Coppola’s direction takes the viewer into several households, seldom is a parent seen, and those adults who do make an appearance are either stoned, getting stoned, making passes at teenagers, or ignoring them entirely — lost in cell-phone calls and household chores. Like the real life Palo Alto, the suburban landscape that the characters of “Palo Alto” inhabit is well-manicured and solidly upper-middle class. It’s a sure bet that some will dismiss the travails of the film’s characters as so many first-world problems. But Coppola, who knows a thing or two about growing up in a family of means, says she believes there is a specific kind of sadness that sometimes stems from wealth. “I think that maybe when you’re wealthy and you don’t need to support yourself and don’t have a sort of structured routine, with a (regular) job, there is no sort of purpose in your life, and it’s not necessarily happy,” she says. However, the relative wealth of the characters and their parents isn’t as important to the film as what is lacking in spite of that wealth. Coppola muses that perhaps the most crushing blow that each of the film’s characters suf(continued on next page)

smooth with the girls and constantly vying for attention with increasingly dangerous stunts — such as deliberately running his car into a wall, cutting down a tree in the middle of the night, or veering into oncoming traffic. These actions perplex and alienate Teddy — that is, unless Fred has used his devilish charm and chaotic magnetism to convince Teddy to join in the destruction. April, like Teddy, is painfully shy. And though she has a crush on Teddy, she ends up falling into the trap laid by James Franco’s character — an older, predatory soccer coach, Mr. B — even as she recognizes that she “should be hanging out with boys (her) own age.” If Teddy is reflected in April, Fred finds something of a match in Chrissy (Olivia Crocicchia), who, unlike April, is “hanging out” with plenty of boys her own age. Before the film is over Chrissy finds herself behind closed doors with both Teddy and Fred, and similar liaisons with other boys are alluded to throughout the script. While Chrissy is mocked for her promiscuity, she responds not by retreating inward, as both Teddy and April do when they are confronted with challenges. Rather, she continues to act out. The unifying thread among all of these characters is, of course, confusion — and Coppola and her cast thoroughly explore the emotion in all its varying shades. There is the confusion April and Teddy feel, as they each try to make clear that they’re interested in each other, yet somehow always manage to say the wrong thing. There’s the confusion Chrissy feels when Fred makes flirtatious advances, only to disappear after they’ve hooked up. And then there is Fred’s confusion — hinted at in some of his off-color remarks and in a violent outburst toward the film’s conclusion, which suggests he may be unsure about his own sexuality or is perhaps grappling with some kind of childhood abuse. Each of the characters’ personal struggles is only exacerbated by the fact that none of them have the proper emotional tools to deal with their respective situations.

fers comes with the realization that their parents, teachers and all the adults in their lives — the people who they’ve grown up thinking of as being in control — ultimately cannot save them from themselves. With “Palo Alto,” Coppola says she was attempting to show “that shift, when you’re young, and when you realize that adults and authority figures are human beings, too” — that they are fallible, that they don’t have all the answers, and that, in fact, they might be just as lost as the teenagers whom they have been charged with shepherding through to adulthood.

Coppola says that making the film forced her to view the world from the perspective of her characters — a process she says was challenging and fun, and which gave her new insights into her own life and what it means to be young. “When you’re young, it’s kind of amazing how you don’t understand consequences,” Coppola says. In particular, the director elaborates, she has found herself thinking recently about the risks she and her friends took when they were younger. While they may seem crazy in retrospect, she muses, it is the uninhibited spirit that gives the young such vitality and allure. It’s almost as if the oblivious

Review: ‘Palo Alto’ --(Guild) In a way, the city of Palo Alto is built on the foundation of teenage tragedy. Established by Leland Stanford as a university town (and a temperance town), Palo Alto took shape to host the institution that takes its name from Stanford’s namesake lad, who died at the age of 15. It’s fitting, then, that James Franco’s 2010 fiction book “Palo Alto Stories” and Gia Coppola’s new film adaptation of the same both commemorate Palo Altan teenagers teetering between tragedy and possibility. In spite of all that, the film “Palo Alto” universalizes its setting to an archetypal upscale suburbia, populated by disaffected white kids and their “freerange” parents (Coppola shot the film in southern California). Freely adapting Franco’s stories, writer-director Coppola eschews melodrama, coaxing powerfully resonant performances from her young leads while never pushing style or content into blatant manipulations. Rather, she takes an omniscient observational tack that plays almost like a nature film about teenagers in the wild of their lives (cinematographer Autumn Cheyenne Durald abets this effect by favoring soft or natural light). The gently rambling story mostly concerns four high schoolers seldom seen in that habitat (or, indeed, in their own homes): Teddy (Jack Kilmer, in his debut), April (Emma Rob-

It is precisely this youthful ethos that gives “Palo Alto” such an ethereal and airy feel, despite all of the weighty topics it confronts. And it’s what allows the viewer to leave the movie clinging to a shred of hope. The kids of “Palo Alto” may not be all right, but you get the sense that they’re erts), Fred (Nat Wolff) and Emily (Zoe Levin). Each has emotional issues — what teenager doesn’t? — that emerge in “small talk,” which ominously turns to car accidents and suicide; impulsive acting out; fumbling mating rituals; and sex entered into and exited with equal casualness, borne of and causing confusion and frustration rather than satisfaction. Though the arrangement remains unspoken, Teddy and Fred maintain a tentative friendship based on a vague sense of obligation: Neither would benefit from being alone, and Fred clearly needs a minder. A scarily unpredictable class clown with anger issues that may derive from childhood abuse, Fred is given to spitting spontaneous pronouncements like “(Screw) good. Live a dangerous life.” His emotional claustrophobia causes collateral damage, perhaps to Teddy and certainly to Emily, who Fred recklessly seduces. For his part, Teddy winds up with a DUI that lands him a community-service stint in a children’s library. Teddy’s lassitude at first appears sullen, but when he takes to the library, his tender side emerges, along with senses of purpose and self-confidence. Of course, that latent sensitivity could also be found in his stolen glances at April, the soccer player first seen taking a smoke break from practice. She babysits for her single-dad soccer coach Mr. B (Franco), whose justold-enough, just-young-enough masculinity proves catnip to the

girls on the team. In a development that unfortunately rings true to life (as much in Palo Alto as anywhere in the country), Mr. B makes advances, and April succumbs. “Palo Alto” reeks of Coppola’s heritage. Granddad Francis makes a vocal cameo, and much of the supporting cast can be linked to him, directly (Colleen Camp, Don Novello, Talia Shire and Val Kilmer) or indirectly (Jack Kilmer is Val’s son). Likewise, 27-year-old Gia shows a clear influence from her Aunt Sofia, who made the similarly themed and styled “The Virgin Suicides” when she was little older than her niece is now. Still, the biggest Coppola influence comes from being a child of privilege, with all the freedom and baggage that entails. With its somewhat dreamy feel and airy hipster rock, “Palo Alto” could be accused of being a mannered attempt to seem unmannered, but Coppola shows genuine interest in emotional detail, and it accumulates into a depth of real feeling. For all its Palo Alto stories, the film is at its best and most achingly affecting in its impression that Teddy and April would be good for each other, so good, in fact, that they could perhaps save each other from their wayward paths if they would only find the right words to say. Rated R for strong sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and pervasive language. One hour, 40 minutes. — Peter Canavese

Forward-thinking footwork Smuin Ballet remembers past fondly while keeping eyes fixed firmly on future

by Nick Veronin

iˆÌ…Ê-ÕÌÌiÀ

Many presumed that Michael Smuin’s death in 2007 would result in the death of Smuin Ballet, the San Francisco-based dance company he founded and had presided over for 13 years. According to those close to the dancer, Tony-award-winning choreographer and theater director, the prospect of someone filling his shoes seemed remote. “I think a lot of people did not imagine that the company could continue without Michael,” says Celia Fushille, a former dancer with the company. “When they found out it was continuing they wondered if it could be as good.” And yet, seven years since the company’s namesake was felled so suddenly by an unexpected heart attack, the company is gearing up for the final performances of its 20th season. After Smuin’s death, Fushille was appointed to the position of artistic director, and, shortly thereafter, executive director. Under Fushille’s watch, the company has not only persevered — it has thrived, garnering praise from the likes of The New York Times for its innovative programming, attracting world-class dancers and working with award-winning and internationally recognized choreographers. According to Fushille, the company has survived because, in many ways, its founder never left. “His spirit is still infusing the company,” the executive director says of her predecessor, whom she first met when she was just 17. Amy Seiwert, the company’s choreographer in residence was mentored by the late Smuin. According to Fushille, sometimes, while blocking out a dance, Seiwert will

Smuin Ballet dancer Erica Felsch with the men of the company in “Do It Again,” a number from Michael Smuin’s ballet ‘Dancin’ With Gershwin, and part of Smuin’s XXcentric Spring Dance Series, which comes to Mountain View on May 21.

say “’Michael is telling me to do this and he is telling me to do that.’” “It’s true!” Seiwert says with a laugh. The choreographer first began working with Smuin as a dancer, back in 1999. The first ballet she created for the company was in 2004. Along the way, the late Smuin gave her lots of feedback and advice, she says. “When I watch my ballets — while I’m creating them, while I watch them critically — I’ll hear his comments,” Seiwert says. “The funny thing is, I won’t always agree with his critiques, even in my head.” And in a roundabout way, Seiwert not agreeing with the super-ego version of Smuin she carries around with her, is a product of Smuin’s mentorship. “He never once encouraged me to imitate him,” Seiwert remembers. Rather, he encouraged her to follow her own intuition. “That was a pretty huge gift.” “In a way Michael Smuin didn’t take himself too seriously,” Fushille says. “In that same spirit, this program is representative of that attitude.” Clarifying her point, Fushille adds that Smuin was certainly serious about his work. But, at the same time, he never felt tied too tightly by tradition. Case in point: Smuin Ballet’s 2010 original production, “Oh, Inverted World” — which set the company’s dancers leaping, pirouetting and plié-ing to music from the 2001 album of the same name by Portland indie rock band, The Shins. Fushille commissioned acclaimed choreographer Trey McIntire to create the Shinsinspired production, which attracted a great deal of attention and drew praise from the New York Times. A short montage of the performance posted on YouTube has close to 44,000 views.

Worth a Look

Frost Music and Arts Festival Once the stomping grounds of Summer of Love-era bands, such as The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane, Stanford Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Frost Amphitheater was quiet for a spell, with event organizers at the university opting to old tamer fare at the historical venue. But the rock has returned. Starting three years ago, in 2012, Stanford revived the dormant venue with the inaugural Frost Music and Arts Festival, which saw indie rock heroes Modest Mouse take the stage. The following year, in 2013, psych rock revivalists MGMT headlined. And this year. at the third annual Frost and Arts Festival, scheduled for Saturday, May 17th, the lineup includes openers Ethan Tucker and Paper Void, supporting act Yeasayer, and headliner Dispatch. In addition to the live performances, Andrea Stein of the Stanford Concert Network said there will be plenty to do. Several interactive art installations created by Stanford students, and pieces from professional guest artist Charlie Gadeken will be featured at the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be everything from a kinetic sculpture, to a life-size chess board, to a waterfall maze. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be amazing,â&#x20AC;? Stein said.

This year, festival organizers worked to increase the amount of art on display on the Frost grounds, according to Frances Ball, director of the Stanford Concert Network. In the two previous years, student artists were given just one quarter to plan and build their festival pieces. This year, Ball explained, they were given two quarters. Ball said organizers are hoping that the increased attention on art and the inclusion of Stanford student band, Paper Void, will lead to an increase in attendance. ĂŹThis is the first year we have chosen an opening act comprised of Stanford students and alumni,â&#x20AC;? Ball said. In addition to the art on display and music on stage, attendees will have their pick of four â&#x20AC;&#x153;gourmetâ&#x20AC;? food trucks, and will be able to visit free face-painting and henna-tattoo booths The gates of the Frost Music and Arts Festival open at 2 p.m. on May 17, at the Frost Amphitheatre on the Stanford Campus. The concert begins at 3 p.m. For more information go to frostmusicfestival.com or call 650-715-2787. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Melissa Landeros

(Century 20) When it comes to monster movies, while zombies, vampires and demons have all served as stand-ins for a variety of real-life social ills, Godzilla has remained consistent. In one way or another, the city-leveling lizard has alway represented humanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrogance. This is certainly the case in the latest installment of the storied Kaiju. As with all comic book-ish reboots of late (read: Christopher Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Batman trilogy), there is nothing campy about this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godzilla.â&#x20AC;? Director Gareth Edwards (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monstersâ&#x20AC;?), aims to keep things serious, and succeeds, which is good thing. The film is leagues ahead of the previous American Godzilla film â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1998â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ill-conceived and unintentionally goofy take on the radioactive reptile, directed by Roland Emmerich and starring a strangely cast Matthew Broderick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godzillaâ&#x20AC;? begins in 1999, with Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins), two scientists who have devoted their lives to studying MUTO, or massive unidentified terrestrial organisms for a secretive global organization. On the day we are introduced to Serizawa and Graham, a mining operation in the Philippines has uncovered a gigantic spore, deep beneath a dig site where the miners had been hunting radioactive metals. That same year we are also introduced to Joe Brody (Brian Cranston), who lives with his family in Japan, where he works as a scientist at the local power plant. On the day we meet Brody something goes terribly wrong at the plant. Massive tremors cause a meltdown, Brodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Sandra is killed and the course of their sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is altered forever. Flashing forward to modern day, an all-grownup Ford Brody (the square-jawed Aaron TaylorJohnson), his wife Elle (Elizabeth Olsen) and their son Sam (Carson Bolde) live together in San Francisco. Ford, just back from a tour of duty, is preparing to spend some quality time with his family when a phone call from Japan throws a wrench in his plans. His father, Joe, has been arrested in the containment zone and he decides to go bring dad home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the end of the world,â&#x20AC;? Elle reassures him. Heh... Of course, it is the end of the world, and Ford is quickly thrust into the midst of an epic adventure that brings him face-to-face with a pair of nuclearwarhead-scarfing, insect-like MUTOs, hellbent on procreating, as well as the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s titular monster, who â&#x20AC;&#x201D; spoiler alert â&#x20AC;&#x201D; turns out to be the good guy when all is said and done. For what it is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godzillaâ&#x20AC;? is quite good, and works on multiple levels. There are plenty of eyepopping special effects and edge-of-your-seat shoot-em-up sequences, Edwards tastefully applies 3D without overdoing it, and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;scienceâ&#x20AC;? explaining the monsters isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lazy and even feels plausible at times. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cast. Cranston is stellar (natch), and the emotion and terror Olsen conjures throughout the film is palpable. But perhaps the most pleasantly surprising display of emotion comes courtesy of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CGI team, who contort the face of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake beast into expressions that convey rage, pain and empathy. In one of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most powerful moments, Ford looks the monster in the eyes and finds a sentient being looking back at him. In that moment, the monster â&#x20AC;&#x201D; near deathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door after an epic battle with the two radiation hungry MUTOs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; seems to confirm that it was indeed fighting to â&#x20AC;&#x153;restore order,â&#x20AC;? as Dr. Serizawa had predicted

earlier in the movie. It is in moments such as these that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godzillaâ&#x20AC;? becomes more than a well cast, finely executed action film. Through the monsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s languishing we realize that if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for all the nuclear testing, and the Cold Warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arms race â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if, in other words, humanity could have just been peaceful â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely none of this would have happened. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence. Two hours, three minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nick Veronin

Million Dollar Arm --(Century 16) Whether playing an advertising executive on televisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mad Menâ&#x20AC;? or a struggling sports agent in this Disney film, Jon Hamm doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need any help with pitching. With suave confidence, he throws marketable, high-concept ideas right into the strike zone. Hamm has what it takes. And director Craig Gillespie (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lars and the Real Girlâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fright Nightâ&#x20AC;?) knows star talent when he sees it, delivering close-up after close-up of the actor who makes every moment seem authentic. After more than 15 years working primarily in television, Hamm is ready for the big-screen league. But the baseball movie is about as predictable as a box of Cracker Jacks. The nominal prize is the heartfelt sentiment that transcends the lineup of clichĂŠs. An underdog and fish-out-of-water tale, Thomas McCarthyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Win Winâ&#x20AC;?) screenplay revolves around J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) convincing an Asian investor (Tzi Ma) to mount a contest throughout India in search of cricket players with accurate fastballs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; million dollar arms. Bernstein also persuades USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coach Tom House (Bill Paxton) to develop the finalists into Major League Baseball pitchers. The stakes are high for Bernstein and his partner Ash (Aasif Mandvi), who need one big client to stay in business. Situational humor provides interest as Bernstein, accompanied by a gruff major league scout (Alan Arkin), travel to cricket-obsessed India. The two men wear poker faces and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t react to cultural differences. Instead the spectator is expected to laugh at everything from inadequate Mumbai office space to villagers bringing cows into their homes and endless Million Dollar Arm contestants throwing baseballs too slowly or completely out of control. Local baseball enthusiast Amit (Bollywood actor Pitobash) joins the search, infusing the movie with comedy and compassion. The second half of the film takes place in Los Angeles and lacks a strong driving force. Amit and the pair of finalists, Rinku (Suraj Sharma of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life of Piâ&#x20AC;?) and Dinesh (Madhur Mittal of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slumdog Millionaireâ&#x20AC;?), move into Bernsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bachelor pad, train for tryouts, suffer from a bad case of culture clash, and run into a rather tame worse-case scenario: If no major league team signs them, they get to return home to India and their loving families. Without a do-or-die dream, the protagonists deflate the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suspense. Adhering to its tagline â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sometimes to win, you have to change the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Disney production isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really a sports movie at all. The real story is about Bernstein transforming from a slick businessman into a human being, as the art of the deal gives way to matters of the heart, giving viewers a game changer both charming and uplifting. Rated PG for mild language and some suggestive content. In English and some Hindi with English subtitles. Two hours, four minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Susan Tavernetti

"6 Ă&#x160; Neighbors --1/2 Even more so than its recent forebears, the new comedy film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighborsâ&#x20AC;? is all about the riff. With Seth Rogen taking center stage, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not such a bad thing: a steady flow of one-liners improves the odds for laughs. The latest film from Nicholas Stoller (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forgetting Sarah Marshallâ&#x20AC;?) explores variations on the theme of bad fences making bad neighbors, as the fraternity Delta Psi Beta moves in next door to a couple â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) and husband Mac (Rogen) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whose early parenthood already has them emotionally vulnerable. Attempting to befriend and, failing that, master their neighbors, Kelly and Mac set about proving they can keep up with the Joneses, despite having a baby daughter. Representing for the frat house are its president, dumb party animal Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron), and vice president, the studious Pete (Dave Franco). The Radners quickly become Delta Psi Betaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural enemies. Accountant Mac and stay-at-home mom Kelly need their sleep, as does their growing child, but the frat, with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta be meâ&#x20AC;? attitude and bassheavy music, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t not party all the time. Rogen essentially plays himself (which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven good at), while Byrne comically unleashes femme fatality as but one weapon in her Machiavellian arsenal. The best, and funniest, part of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighborsâ&#x20AC;? is its refusal to shunt Kelly to the sideline, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hilarious, postmodern argument between the marrieds about their correspondence to film and TV stereotypes. The screenplay is smart enough to humanize Teddy a little and to own up to the Radnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transgressive selfishness. Nimble performances by the likeable top-billed foursome go a long way to making the anemic story feel satisfying. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very larky and goofy, and if you can meet â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighborsâ&#x20AC;? in that place, you can get a nice buzz off of it. Rated R for pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use throughout. One hour, 36 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C. Belle --1/2 When films â&#x20AC;&#x153;based on a true storyâ&#x20AC;? make actual history enticing, they do a kind of service, especially to young audiences, and perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best that can be said for the simplifications of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belle.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belleâ&#x20AC;? opens in 1769, as Captain John Lindsay (Matthew Goode) of the Royal Navy locates his biracial illegitimate daughter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belleâ&#x20AC;? and rescues her from slavery. Lindsay installs the girl with his great-uncle William Murray, First Earl of Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife Lady Mansfield (Emily Watson). Though scandalized, they take in the girl â&#x20AC;&#x201D; full name Dido Elizabeth Belle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and before long, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the family, albeit a part not allowed to take dinner with them. Once full grown, Dido (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) begs the question of a husband, an awkward situation for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mulattoâ&#x20AC;? girl raised by high-society whites. Matters are less complicated for Didoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cousin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and bosom companion since childhood â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elizabeth Murray (Sarah Gadon). Screenwriter Misan Sagay takes creative license to create an Austen-esque romantic drama, in which money is an issue but race even more so. Dido has two options: one perfectly adequate (James Norton), if more interested in her exoticism and dowry than her soul, and a dashing downlow suitor that oozes passion for her and social justice, aspiring lawyer John Davinier (Sam Reid). Unfortunately, his abolitionist advocacy sets him at odds with Lord Mansfield, who, as Lord Chief Justice, is considering a slave trade case with the potential to disrupt â&#x20AC;&#x153;the finances that hold up England.â&#x20AC;? Director Amma Asante wrangles crisp period imagery, and in broad strokes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belleâ&#x20AC;? captures the intrigue of the real Dido. Raw makes Dido charismatic without being unduly confident or modern, and Wilkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subtleties go a long way to selling a script that favors blunt statement over subtext. Older viewers may be unconvinced by the narrative formulas, but with its PG rating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belleâ&#x20AC;? makes a fine opening to engage kids in some race-based social and legal history. Rated PG for thematic elements, some language and brief smoking images. One hour, 44 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

his lucrative new business. But for all this, the film never quite rises above a base curiosity value. Allen plays Murray Schwartz, a bookseller who loses his shop to rising rent and stagnant business. While commiserating with his florist friend Fioravante (Turturro), Murray not so idly mentions his dermatologist Dr. Parker (Stone) wants to arrange a mĂŠnage Ă  trois with her friend Selima (SofĂ&#x152;a Vergara) and some stud. Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to pay a thousand bucks, Murray could sure use a commission, and, well, how about it? Though understandably reluctant, Fioravante relents for some reason. Turturro treats this idea as a kind of photogenic fable â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or feature-length public service announcement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to remind people that sex is good for their mental health. The business with Stone and Vergara turns out to be something of a red herring; the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart resides with Hasidic widow Avigal (Vanessa Paradis, a striking presence), who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t felt the touch of a man in some time. And so it goes: at times thuddingly earnest (â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what you do,â&#x20AC;? Avigal tells Fioravante. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bring magic to the lonelyâ&#x20AC;?), at times, jazzily, goofily endearing (as in Allen fancying the street name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dan Bongoâ&#x20AC;? or

the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s falling action of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not dead yetâ&#x20AC;? male bonding). But the characters are established in shorthand, which undercuts attempts at drama, and Turturroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s romanticism keeps undercutting the humor before it has a chance to get satisfyingly irreverent. Call it comoedia interruptus. Rated R for some sexual content, language and brief nudity. One hour, 30 minutes.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

Eating Out Ruth Reichl sinks her teeth into fiction Former restaurant critic and Gourmet editor-in-chief talks dining disguises, her new novel and the best thing she ate last week

F

her aunt, the sister of her dead mother. “Delicious!” is a departure from Reichl’s past works — fans best know her memoirs, “Tender at the Bone,” “Comfort Me with Apples,” “Garlic and Sapphires,” and “For You Mom, Finally” — but there are traces of her life and career throughout. In our Q&A with Reichl, she opened up about her new book, her past, why the Bay Area is a haven for culinary innovation and the frittata she can’t stop thinking about. What inspired you to make the switch to fiction?

I love fiction. It’s my greatest love. ... In times of trouble, what I do is I leap into a book. I just vanish and I love that ability to vanish into another world. I thought, ‘I wonder if that’s what it’s like writing a book?’ So that was a big part of it. I was very sad about the closing of Gourmet and a year later, I was finally in a better place. I’d been in the kitchen for that year mostly and I thought, ‘Now I’m going to do this.’ I had this idea — I had been working at Gilt Taste, and I met all these fantastic 20something-year-old women who were so different than my generation and so fantastic. I admired them so much — their energy, their optimism and I thought, ‘I wonder what it’s like to be 21 and coming to New York?’ I’m going to create this character and see what happens. I know most first-time novelists say their books aren’t based on reality, but a lot of what happens to Billie seems to resemble your life. How much of “Delicious!” was autobiographical, whether it was purposeful or not?

Emotionally, she’s very much not like me. She’s shy, which I am certainly not. And she’s in trouble. When I was 21, I was already married. And I really think this generation is a very different time. (In my generation), we had no trouble getting jobs. You got out of school and there were a million jobs. You could do anything you wanted. This generation of kids just getting out of college ... if you have a job, be grateful. Yes, I wrote about the world I know; I wrote about a food magazine and food people, but I would say if there’s anybody that I resemble in the book, it’s much more Lulu. I was a little girl who cooked. There’s a reference to Palo

Alto and Sunset Magazine in the book. Where did that come from? [One of the Delicious! chefs decides to take a job at Sunset, now based in Menlo Park, and move with her husband, who got a job at a startup in Palo Alto.]

I spent the first 10 years of my career in San Francisco. At the time, Sunset Magazine had the most amazing person who was in charge of food there. She was gorgeous; she was smart. If there’s a reference, it’s kind of to that. I’ve always admired Sunset. Can you talk about your time in Berkeley, the early days at Chez Panisse?

Berkeley in the early ‘70s was really an amazing place. It was all filled with people who were very political. And the war ended and we all felt really great that we had ended the war. We felt very powerful and we started looking around — what’s the next cause? Food seemed like a really good thing to take up. We were looking at the beginning of the industrialization of food, vertical integration of agribusiness and to a lot of us, restaurant work seemed like very honest work. It was honest labor. Our restaurant, The Swallow, was ... (made up of) a group of really over-educated people who were really passionate about food, but none of us were professionally trained. Chez Panisse was kind of like that too. Alice (Waters) had no professional training. Jeremiah (Towers) didn’t. It was this time of — we were all kind of learning on the spot, learning as we went, very optimistic about what we might accomplish. None of us were business people. When Alice opened Chez Panisse, her idea was that everyone — it didn’t matter if you were a dishwasher, waiter or cook, you we’re going to get the same wage. There was no business plan. We were kind of the same at The Swallow. It was kind of a wonderful time. It was a wonderful kind of innocence.

On the other hand ... we were like this tiny band of people who cared about food in a world that really was completely oblivious. And today what you have is food as popular culture and certainly the most knowledgeable dining public that this country has ever had. What do you think has driven that huge shift?

I think an awful lot of it is (the) beginning of TV food networks and all of these food shows on TV. I think there’s this generation of kids who grew up watching food TV. Y o u have had feet in

both the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City dining worlds. Can you talk about the differences between the two?

The hugest difference is it’s so easy to be a good home cook in the Bay Area. I come out there and I go to a place like Bi-Rite Market (in San Francisco) or the Berkeley Bowl and I’m just so jealous. We don’t have anything like that in New York. You have a completely different home-cooking culture than we do. It means that restaurants, I think, have license to be more experimental in the Bay Area because people can cook great, simple food at home. I don’t think people in the Bay Area go out to eat as much. New Yorkers don’t have kitchens; they don’t have access to easy great food; people order

by Elena Kadvany or many years, Ruth Reichl was not Ruth Reichl. She was Brenda, a redheaded hippie so friendly she would often receive tastes of food from neighboring tables at restaurants. She was Chloe, a sultry diner who proves that blondes truly do have more fun. Perhaps most famous was her stint as Molly, a frumpy woman from Michigan who revealed two very distinct dining experiences at Le Cirque in New York City, published in a 1993 review divided into two sections: “Dinner as the Unknown Diner” and “Dinner as a Most Favored Patron.” Reichl donned these disguises for six years while dining as The New York Times restaurant critic, bringing a new flavor and focus to the Grey Lady. Long before that, she was a starving 20-something in Berkeley, just starting what would become a legendary food-writing career — she’s the author of multiple cookbooks, memoirs, winner of six James Beard Awards, was editor-in-chief of now-shuttered Gourmet Magazine and starred in Food Network specials. Her most recent writing comes in fictional form, and brings her to Palo Alto for a talk at the Oshman Family JCC at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20, at 7. “Delicious!,” a novel set in contemporary New York City, follows Billie Breslin, a 21year-old from Santa Barbara who snags a job at nationally renowned food magazine “Delicious!” only to see it shut down by its ruthless owner (not unlike Conde Nast’s abrupt closure of 70-year-old Gourmet in 2009). Billie is asked to stay on to take readers’ complaints about recipes, mandated under the Delicious! satisfaction “Guarantee.” In her time alone at the defunct magazine’s office (a beautiful New York City mansion) she discovers a hidden room full of letters from 12-year-old Lulu Swan to the food pioneer himself, James Beard. The letters, written during World War II, revolve around food and recipes, but underlying references to the war provide a historical tilt that draws Billie into the past. On weekends Billie works at a family-owned Italian deli (which becomes the subject of her first break-through piece for the magazine). She writes letters to an older sister she misses dearly and reminisces about a gingerbread recipe that she made with

Former New York Times restaurant critic and editor of Gourmet magazine Ruth Reichl’s first foray into fiction takes place in New York City.

Eating Out a wig?’ Claudia said ‘No, no, no. You can’t just put on a wig. You have to become these people.’ She really insisted that I know every character’s back story and where they came from, who they were, how they dressed, who their families were. It was incredible practice for writing fiction. It was like living fiction. It was an amazing lesson to me in how much in control we are of how people see us. I never thought about that before. (I thought) you are who you are and you’re stuck with it. Putting on all these disguises, I realized ... you’re totally in control of how the world sees you.

Ruth Reichl, author of “Tender at the Bone,” “Garlic and Sapphires,” “For You, Mom, Finally,” “Comfort Me With Apples,” and most recently, “Delicious!”

Ultimately, I got offered the job at Gourmet, (it) was irresistible. At first, I said to my husband, ‘This job is great, but I’m not ready to leave being the restaurant critic of The New York Times.’ He said, ‘Think about this for a minute. What are you going to do in a couple years when you keep saying you’ll be done with doing this in a couple years?’ And I said. ‘Well, I have a deal with The New York Times: When I’m done with (being a restaurant critic), I’ll be an editor.’ He said, ‘Wouldn’t you rather be the editor of your own magazine?’ I had this meeting with James Truman, who was the one hiring

(at Gourmet) and I said to him, ‘I don’t want this job, but I can tell you what I think you should do with the magazine.’ I suddenly realized I really did know exactly what I thought an epicurean magazine should be and that it would be really fun to try to make a magazine that was a part of the national conversation about food. Is there a food trend today that you hate? Or one you celebrate?

The one that I most celebrate at the moment is, I love the way that Middle Eastern spices are finally coming into the table and I think its all due to (well-known Israeli chef Yotam) Ottolenghi and the success of (his cookbook, “Jerusalem”). They’re spilling over into restaurants and we’re suddenly getting this entirely different flavor palate and I love that. This isn’t exactly a trend, but one of the things that really worries me is in the whole sustainable food movement, we are really overlooking an important part of it. Both restaurants and agriculture in this country essentially run on undocumented workers. These people are exploited. We did an article in Gourmet about tomato workers in Florida who are virtual slaves. But it isn’t just Florida. I think its time that we got out of this rut of sustainability and what’s good for me; I don’t want

PENINSULA

to eat pesticides; I want the land to be pristine for my children and so forth, and expand the notion of sustainability to the people who are growing this food for us. Now that your novel is successfully out the door, what’s next?

I have just turned in a cookbook that comes off my Twitter feed. It starts with Gourmet closing and each page is the tweet and then the kind of diary of what was going on my life and then the recipe that I was tweeting about. It’s seasonal; it goes an entire year. It’s really how I went into the kitchen and just healed myself. And it’s about how I reconnected with cooking and really re-grounded myself in the kitchen. Now, I’m working on my next novel. After I finish this novel, I’m going to write the Gourmet memoir. But I wanted a little distance from it. I didn’t want to just leap into it, I really wanted to be able to pull back. By the time I write it in another year or so, I’ll really be writing about a vanished world. That world of Conde Nast, which is a world of unbelievable freedom and luxury, I think, is a thing of the past. But it was a magical time. Is there a new dish you cooked recently that you loved? Or perhaps, an old favorite?

My go-to favorite dish is spaghetti carbonara. I’ve always got dry pasta in the cupboard and I’ve always got bacon, eggs and Parmesan cheese in my refrigerator. At the drop of a hat, I’ll go home and make myself spaghetti carbonara. No, I take it back. The most delicious thing I ate last week — my son went to a Japanese market and brought me home as a present a tray of uni and some yamamimo — a Japanese mountain potato which when you grate it gets wonderfully slimy — and some salmon roe. I made this dish of grated yamamimo with uni and salmon roe and a little bit of soy sauce. If you’re going...

Eating Out

ShopTalk HALF-PRICED PASTRIES, IF YOU’RE LUCKY ... It’s never announced ahead of time — a sign is simply slapped on the front door, usually at night, and usually if there are a lot of surplus pastries left. “It’s pretty random,” said a cashier at Paris Baquette , 383 University, Palo Alto, describing how the downtown bakery will sell its food items, such as green pea bread, sweet rice donuts or coffee buns, for half price at arbitrary times. “People are surprised when we do it. When that half-price sign goes up in the front, things move pretty fast. Customers love it,” she said. FITNESS STUDIO EYES EDGEWOOD PLAZA ... A new fitness studio that combines group exercise with high-intensity interval training is scheduled to open in Palo Alto’s renovated Edgewood Plaza near Embarcadero Road and U.S. Highway 101. Orangetheory Fitness , a franchise based in Florida, was started in 2009 and now has 200 locations. “There’s nothing else like it in this area,” said Kendall Riding, a Bay Area native who, along with her two partners, plans to open an Orangetheory in Palo Alto this fall. “We chose Edgewood Plaza because this particular shopping center is a neighborhood-serving center. Plus, it’s a

great location because of its proximity to the highway, and it has a big parking lot,” Riding said. A former real estate developer, Riding, who lives in San Francisco, says that Palo Alto was her first choice for the new business. “Assuming we make it through a few more hurdles, it looks like it will be an October or November opening,” Riding said. Following the city-permit process, Orangetheory will join Fresh Market and Chase Bank at Edgewood Plaza, with other new tenants expected to sign on soon. ANATOLIAN KITCHEN DOUBLES ITS SPACE ... It took a little longer than expected, but the Mediterranean restaurant, Anatolian Kitchen , 2323 Birch St., Palo Alto, is nearly finished with its expansion. Once the adjacent building is completed, it will add about 1,000 square feet to the existing restaurant, which will just about double its current size. The additional space is in the former site of Ramona’s Pizza , which closed unexpectedly in May 2013. Owner Dino Tekdemir, who opened Anatolian Kitchen in 2010, will be adding a banquet room to the new structure. “We’re also going to have live music on the weekends and belly dancers,” he said, adding

Matched CareGivers there will be a new bar menu and happy hour. The grand opening of the newly renovated space will likely be in July, according to Tekdemir. PHILZ TO MAKE A SPLASH IN SANTA MONICA ... Philz Coffee, which started in San Francisco in 2003 and has two popular locations in Palo Alto, continues its explosive growth with the announcement that it is opening its first store in Southern California. “We’ve gotten so many requests on social media to open a shop in that area. We decided on Santa Monica because its culture of innovation and technology is similar to what we have here in the Bay Area. It’s going to be a great fit,” said Philz CEO Jacob Jaber. Scheduled to open next month, Philz Santa Monica will bring the total number of Philz cafes to 15. Additionally, Philz has been serving its coffee on all Virgin America flights since 2011. N

Tarn Wilson, author of “The Slow Farm,” stands in her classroom at Gunn High School, where she teaches a creative-writing class. by Chris Kenrick

A

n impulse to understand her vivid and exuberant, yet troubling, memories from early childhood drove Tarn Wilson to spend decades mulling them over in writing. The memories — of running and playing naked with her toddler sister on the Canadian Pacific shore, of her mother growing yogurt and baking bread in a wood stove in a house without electricity, of nearly drowning amid floating logs when nobody was watching — comprise her book, “The Slow Farm,” newly published by Ovenbird Books of Port Townsend, Washington. Wilson, a teacher at Gunn High School and a published essayist,

began writing down her early memories at age 17, long before having any inkling they would become the basis for a book. When she was 3 years old in 1971, her father Jack Wilson quit his job as an early computer programmer and reconfigured the interior of an old school bus as a living unit for a family of four. He and her mother Janet drove their two preschool-age daughters from Washington, D.C., across the country to settle in a small house in a logging and mining community on Texada Island, British Columbia. Her father had been reading Ken Kesey’s adventures in his psychedelic school bus and the essays of Timothy Leary urging people to “turn on, tune in and drop out,” Wilson said.

“We were off to find our own Eden. ... My sister and I were to be educated by the land, released from shame, fear, insecurities, sexual hang ups and shallow social conventions imposed by a corrupt and repressive culture,” she wrote. It didn’t last long. Within two years, Janet had left Jack and taken her young daughters to Vancouver, later moving them to Colorado. “The Slow Farm” is Wilson’s examination of her two years on the island — from age 4 to 6 — gleaned from her own sharp recollections of a time when she believed her parents were perfect and her research, as an adult years later, about American cultural trends in the 1960s.

Had her parents, now both dead, read “Summerhill: A Radical Approach to Child Rearing,” which endorses freedom and independence for children as a way to nurture creativity? Wilson doesn’t know, but thinks they surely must have. “There are wonderful and difficult things about being raised the way we were,” she said in an interview. “Some people say, ‘Your parents were amazing, how brave they were, how magical,’ and others would say they were child abusers. We almost drowned sometimes because they weren’t watching, and we were also exposed to drug use. (continued on next page)

“I want readers to come to their own conclusions about the choices they made — to wrestle with that. “I learned so much about my parents by writing this book. It was transformative for me. The book helped me to understand my life, and taught me to write.” Wilson, who has taught at Gunn for 15 years, has taken a parttime schedule to carve out time to write. She’s quick to point out she’s not the only published author in Gunn’s English department: Fellow teacher Ginny Moyer has published three books including, most recently, “Random MOMents of Grace: Experiencing God in

the Adventures of Motherhood” (Loyola Press, 2013) and “Daily Inspirations for Women: Seasons of a Woman’s Life” (Loyola Press, 2013, co-author). “Our school has been supportive of teachers with scheduling needs,” Wilson said. “It’s the school culture which I’m so grateful for. For the last three years I’ve been able to teach in the afternoon, so I’ve had morning writing time which has been one of the greatest gifts of my life.” The paper-grading load of a full-time English teacher with 150 students would never afford extra time to write. She’s chosen to “live frugally,” she said, to “exchange money for time to write.” The writing is often done at a red desk under a window in the office of her Sunnyvale condominium, surrounded by bookshelves. Or she’ll make a “writing date” with a friend, and they’ll work together at the Bean Scene Cafe

in Sunnyvale or LYFE Kitchen in Palo Alto. She also meets monthly with a writing group she’s been part of for nine years. Because members have moved away and scattered from San Francisco to Placerville, they’ve lately been meeting in Vacaville. “Teaching and writing both feed each other and work in opposition to each other,” Wilson said. “Teaching requires an enormous amount of time, energy and focus, which can sometimes drain creative energy, especially for an introvert. At the same time, writing can be a long and lonely process. When I’ve been working for ages on a piece that doesn’t feel successful and rejections are pouring in, I’m so grateful to have the privilege of teaching a room full of creative, funny, energetic students. “With the slow process of sending work out for publication, it can be years before receiving responses on a piece of writing,

while teaching provides almost immediate feedback,” she said. “Teachers know almost instantly if a lesson plan has been successful, and there’s almost no greater thrill than a lesson plan that works — students all engaged, laughing, making meaning together and grasping a difficult concept. “On the other hand, on the days when I haven’t felt successful as a teacher, it is a gift to be able to turn to the writing which, like other art forms, can make me feel more calm, centered and in perspective.” Wilson’s teaching and writing worlds came together recently when 90 people showed up for a Sunday afternoon reading of her book in the Gunn Library, along with a reading by her friend, the poet Kasey Jueds. “I was really nervous,” she said. “People from all different stages of my life were in one room — old college professors, students I

used to teach, teachers from the school I used to teach in the Los Gatos-Saratoga district. It was wonderful.” N Staff Writer Chris Kenrick can be emailed at ckenrick@ paweekly.com.

Do you want the best in home care for your family? Call Home Care Assistance.

“Named national winner of the ‘Best of Home Care Award’ by Home Care Pulse.” It starts with our caregivers. We carefully screen nearly 25 applicants for each caregiver we hire. Only the best are good enough for Home Care Assistance! We follow this with extensive training. Finally we invite geriatric experts to meet with our caregivers so that they are up-to-date with the newest ideas about senior care. Hourly and Live-In Care. Our caregiving services focus on two basic types of care: hourly and live-in. The service you choose is determined by your particular needs.



Hourly caregiving works well for many families. In this situation we provide trained caregivers on an hourly basis. Here the caregiver focuses all her attention exclusively on the senior.

Page 38ÊUÊ>ÞÊ£È]ÊÓä£{ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

Live-in care differs from hourly care in that we provide personal aides on a daily basis. Live-in caregivers are often the best choice for those seniors who need the companionship of another person, but who do not have intense “all the time” personal needs. At Home Care Assistance we mean it when we talk about providing the best in senior care–whether it is on an hourly basis or a live-in basis.

harleston Meadows, a Palo Alto neighborhood distinguished by the sloping glass and wood facades of its many 1950s Eichler homes, has barely changed, according to Ellen Hartog, lifelong resident of the neighborhood and co-president of the Charleston Meadows Association (CMA). “The tree died,” Hartog joked, referring to a recently removed pine that had long made its home in Robles Park. But the neighborhood’s iconic architecture, and even some of its residents, have been there since the neighborhood’s mid-century development, Hartog said. A stroll through the neighborhood’s generous streets yields peeks at a vintage Palo Alto. The neighborhood has maintained its wood-framed style with laws outlined by the

Architectural Control Committee (ACC) that prevent renovations from straying too far from a home’s original architecture. In some yards, lush landscapes protect large glass windows in a form that stays true to the original Eichler sentiment of fluid indoor and outdoor spaces. And Charleston Meadows has plenty of outdoor space, including the aforementioned Robles Park. Hartog sees the park as a neighborhood resource that, though per-

haps underused by many Palo Altans, serves as a gathering beacon for the residents of Charleston Meadows. The park is the site of the neighborhood’s annual community party, where last year the CMA held a dessert potluck and enjoyed coffee donated from a local Starbucks. “Everyone here has the same mentality of family and outreach,” she said. The community members use online forums to communicate with each other, as when sharing babysitter and landscaper recommendations. But, like many a coveted Palo Alto neighborhood, the calm of Charleston Meadows can be disturbed by the increased traffic and bustle of industrialization. Hartog pointed to Charleston Road, a four-lane street prone to speeding cars and limited crosswalks. “I’ll always be an advocate of safer crossing,” she said. Despite Charleston Road’s shortcomings, Hartog noted its accessibility to El Camino Real, Alma Street and Highway 101, and the neighborhood’s resulting proximity to shopping. Whole Foods, Safeway, Trader Joe’s, the Milk Pail Market and the recently opened Grocery Outlet are among the many

hat’s the question we real-estate agents are hearing a lot today from our sellers trying to time the market. And, while the ramifications are complicated, the answer is $2,500,000 simple. If you try to time the market, you must accept the very Average home price real risk of losing big. $2,000,000 Median home price We are in the second half of our latest real-estate run. The problem is no one knows if it is early in third quarter or late in the fourth. In these late-run scenarios, prices have gone up $1,500,000 between 15 percent and 30 percent — tremendous amounts of appreciation that any seller would love to capture. The problem is, if you overshoot the peak and end up in the $1,000,000 correction, prices can (and have) dropped as much as 20 percent on the medians and 40 percent on the high end. More importantly, it will most likely be five years before you see that peak price again. $500,000 1998 2000 2002 2004 2006 2008 2010 2012 2013 For the rational, risk-averse seller, or anyone who wants to sell in the next five to seven years, now is the time.

nearby places to shop. Janaki Ramachandran, who moved to Charleston Meadows in late 2012 with her husband and their two children, loves the neighborhood’s easy access to California Avenue. “The kids take piano classes near California Avenue,” she said. “So it’s very convenient.” Ramachandran and her family all love to bike, so when they moved to Palo Alto from Mountain View they were looking for a neighborhood that suited this lifestyle. “We don’t have to rely on cars,” Ramachandran said. “And our family can use the bus system when they visit.” Hartog also mentioned the nearby Ventura Community Center as another family-friendly charm. Owned by the city and managed by Palo Alto Community Child Care, the space houses child care facilities as its primary business. But the

center also has a broad area with a field and playground that is open to the public. “You wouldn’t even know it’s there,” Hartog said. Though a small neighborhood, Charleston Meadows has a number of cul-de-sacs that form pockets of neighborly goodwill, Hartog explained. Some of the neighborhood’s lots look to the tree-lined Adobe Creek on its southeast side, which can be traversed by a bike bridge that gives easy access to Mountain View. Thinking fondly of her fellow residents, Hartog remembered a Charleston Meadows couple with plans to retire soon in the East Bay and made a mental note to stop by their house. “When people leave, we’re sad,” Hartog said. Still, she always looks forward to welcoming new families to Charleston Meadows. “Everyone here is interested in keeping in touch with each other.” N Editorial Intern Lena Pressesky can be emailed at lpressesky@ paweekly.com.

Sports Shorts THE STATE’S BEST . . . Pinewood junior point guard Marissa Hing, who helped lead the Panthers to the CIF Division V state basketball championship this season, has been named the state Division V player of the year by Cal-Hi Sports. “She is deserving of the award,” said Pinewood coach Doc Scheppler. “She had a great year, and we’re looking for her to keep getting better for next year.” Hing helped Pinewood to a 30-3 record by averaging 12.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists while playing in all 33 games. She scored a team-high 413 points and made a team-high 61 3-pointers. Also receiving recognition from CalHi Sports were Pinewood senior Leanna Bade and Eastside Prep junior Destiny Graham, as well as Hing, on the Division V first team. Hing also was named to the AllJunior second team.

NFL DRAFT . . . Stanford’s Trent Murphy and Palo Alto High graduate Davante Adams are headed to professional football teams following their selections in the NFL Draft last Friday. Both players were chosen in the second round. Murphy was selected 47th overall by the Washington Redskins. He was the 15th pick of the second round and was the first Stanford player selected in the draft. Adams, who led the nation with 24 touchdowns, 131 receptions and set a Fresno State record with 1,718 receiving yards, was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 53rd overall pick. He went No. 21 in the second round. Stanford had a record-tying six former players selected in the 2014 NFL Draft.

A SHOT AT THE NFL . . . While Menlo School grad Jerry Rice Jr. was not among those picked in the 2014 NFL Draft, his dream of following his famous father into the NFL is not over. The Baltimore Ravens will host Rice Jr. for a three-day tryout this weekend, a source told FOXSports.com. Rice Jr., a wide receiver, played for UNLV last season and finished with 11 passes for 86 yards, and had a touchdown in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Prior to 2013, Rice Jr. played for UCLA, where he had nine catches. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Rice participated in a San Francisco 49ers’ local pro day, among 60 players looking to make an NFL roster.

dinal kept playing even after getting down by three goals with less than 20 seconds remaining to play in the first half. “It seems like game after game we get down and have to fight our way back,” said Tanner, who said he did not deliver a halftime speech. “I’m so proud of these guys for their resilience. It was being down and playing 5-on-6

Cardinal needs to sweep WSU to have any chance of earning NCAA berth

T

œLÊ ÀiLˆ˜ÉÃÌ>˜vœÀ`«…œÌœ°Vœ“

By Rick Eymer tanford has reached its weekend of no return as far as postseason baseball is concerned. After dropping a 10-8 nonconference decision to visiting San Jose State on Tuesday night, the Cardinal has no room for error when Washington State visits Sunken Diamond to open a threegame Pac-12 series Friday at 7 p.m. The game will be followed by the annual fireworks show. Stanford (11-13 in the Pac-12, 24-22 overall) needs to overtake the Cougars (12-12, 22-25) in the conference standings for any legitimate chance of securing a berth in the NCAA tournament. With USC taking the weekend off, the Cardinal could move into a fifth-place tie with the Trojans should it sweep Washington State, giving the NCAA selection committee a better impression. Stanford has yet to sweep a conference team yet this season, though it has won four series, including each of the past two. The Cardinal looks to be in good shape entering the weekend, with a better team batting average (.264) than either of its two remaining Pac-12 opponents in Washington State (.260) and Utah (.232) and a lower ERA (3.45) as well. Stanford ranks third in the conference with its .977 field percentage, despite early season struggles. Austin Slater is hitting .500 (10 for 40) during his current 10game hitting streak and has risen to seventh in the conference with a .345 batting average. Zach Hoffpauir is right behind, raising his average to .327, among the Pac-12’s top 10. He’s on a career-best eight-game hitting streak, and has at least two hits in each of his past six games. Palo Alto resident Alex Blandino ranks second in the Pac-12 with nine home runs, fourth in total bases with 90 and fourth in slugging percentage at .517. John Hochstatter (8-1, 1.96) has pitched his way into the Pac-12’s elite, boasting the fifth best ERA, fourth best win total and ranks fourth in opponents batting average (.192). Freshman Cal Quantrill averages 7.55 strikeouts per nine innings, and, along with Hochstatter, is one of eight conference pitchers with a complete-game shutout. The Cardinal has won 13 of its past 19 games to put itself in de-

by Andrew Preimesberger hree lacrosse championship matches will be held Saturday. Right now, three local teams know who they’ll be playing in the finals while two other squads have a pretty good idea, as well. The Sacred Heart Prep boys will play Menlo-Atherton for the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League crown at Woodside High at 7 p.m. The finale is a rematch of last year’s title game, won by the Bears. The Palo Alto girls will play Saratoga for the SCVAL crown at Paly at 10 a.m., after eliminating host St. Francis, 10-9, on Wednesday. The Falcons, meanwhile, upset regular-season champ and top seed Gunn, 9-8. And while the West Bay Athletic League playoffs were only in the semifinal stage on Thursday, look for No. 1 seed SHP and No. 2 Menlo School to reach Saturday’s title match at Harker School (Saratoga campus) at 9 a.m. SHP, which won the regularseason title in the SCVAL De Anza Division, advanced with a 17-10 romp over Menlo School on Wednesday on the Gators’ field. The Gators improved to 14-5 while the Knights fell to 14-6. “I think we have been getting better,” said Sacred Heart Prep head coach Chris Rotelli. “We showed a lot of fight and a lot of grit in the second half. I thought they brought great energy and we got those 50/50 possessions put a few in the back of the net.” SHP seniors Frankie Hattler and Sean Mayle combined for 12 goals and four assists to lead their team into title game. Will Kremer added three goals. “Frankie put us on his back when we needed it,” said Rotelli. “We were pressing a little bit at the beginning, but he settled everyone else down and scored some huge goals.” The Knights were down by three when Colin Johnson slapped home a goal on an assist from Adam Yecies to make it a 7-5 lead for the Gators going into halftime. Hattler scored his third goal of the quarter when he ran in for an unassisted score and increased the lead for the Gators, 11-7 after the third quarter. “Once you beat your guy, the game slows down a bit it’s about picking your spot and just hitting it,” said Hattler. Menlo was led by Jack Marren’s three goals. Jack Ferguson and Johnson added two each. Hattler had seven goals to lead all scorers. “We’re confident in what we do,” said Hattler. “We’ve worked

The NCAA selection committee values how well a team performs over its last 20 games or so. Stanford has seven games remaining on its schedule and just getting by won’t be enough. Winning all seven fits the perfect scenario, though it all likelihood, winning both of the remaining series and beating Pacific in a nonconference game may fill the prescription for success. The Cardinal brings an RPI rating of 32, thanks to a strong schedule, into the weekend. Men’s golf Stanford took the first-round lead at the NCAA West Regional after shooting 276 at the par-70 Eugene Country Club in Ore., four strokes better than Oklahoma. Cardinal junior Patrick Rodgers leads the field after firing a 4-under 66. Teammate David Boote was in sixth following a 69 while Cardinal senior Cameron Wilson shot a 71. Stanford, in its 16th consecutive regional competition, needs to finish among the top five to advance to the NCAA Championships at the Prairie Dunes Country Club in Kansas, which begins May 23. Women’s golf Stanford will be battling history as much as the golf course when the NCAA championships get underway on Tuesday at the par-70, 6,194 yard Tulsa Country Club in Oklahoma. The Cardinal has never won a national title, although it finished second, to Arizona, in 2000. Stanford finished in a tie for 13th at last year’s championships in Georgia. Mariah Stackhouse was the top finisher for the Cardinal, shooting a four-round score of 295. Lauren Kim and Mariko Tumangan also competed last year, as did Danielle Fraser. Stanford won the Pac-12 tournament and advanced to the NCAA finals with a fifth-place showing at the East Regional last week. The Cardinal is one of seven

teams from the Pac-12 that qualified for the championship, a list that includes defending national champions USC and former national titlists UCLA, Arizona and Arizona State. Washington and California also qualified for the 24-team field. Softball Stanford will be on the sidelines of the NCAA tournament for the first time in 17 years. The Cardinal (30-25 overall) and Utah (31-24) were not chosen for regional play despite RPI’s of 49 and 61 respectively. The Pac-12 Conference had five teams selected for the postseason and all five are seeded among the top 12. It was a season of perseverance more than anything else. The Cardinal pitching staff took a big hit even before the season started when talented freshman Kelsey Stevens (15-7, 2.99 with Stanford last year) transferred to Oklahoma. Women’s tennis In a battle of freshmen, Stanford’s Caroline Doyle rallied in the third set and won a tiebreaker over Cal’s Maegan Manasse, 6-7, 6-3, 7-6 (0) to lift the defending national champion Cardinal to an improbably 4-3 victory on Thursday in the Round of 16 at the NCAA Championships in Athens, Ga. Doyle had trailed 4-3, 5-4 and again at 6-5 before tying the match and breezing through the tiebreaker to keep Stanford’s title hopes alive for another day. Stanford freshman Taylor Davidson bounced back from nearly having to default due to leg cramps and posted a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 victory over Lynn Chi at No. 3 singles to deadlock the match, 3-3. Kristie Ahn won at No. 1 singles for Stanford, 6-4, 6-2 over Denise Starr, as did Carol Zhao at No. 3, 6-2, 6-3 over Anet Schutting. The Cardinal, however, lost the doubles point and saw Krista Hardebeck lose at No. 2 and Ellen Tsay fall at No. 5. N

hard all year long and we know on any given day we can bring it.” Sacred Heart Prep will face Menlo-Atherton for the third time during the league season, gaining a shot at revenge after losing to the Bears in the 2013 title match. The Bears (12-9) won their fifth straight and defeated the only team to upend the Gators in league play this season. In girls’ lacrosse action: For the second time in as many weeks, Palo Alto pulled off a dramatic mid-game comeback to beat perennial rival St. Francis. This time, the stakes were higher as the victory moved the Vikings (16-5) into the finals again. In the final moments, St. Francis managed to score a free shot to tie it up 9-9 with 3:20 left to play. A minute later, a crease roll by Lauren Gargiulo catapulted the Vikings back into the lead, only to have that edge threatened by a free- shot opportunity given to St. Francis. But, Paly sophomore goalie Meredith Kinnaman made the tough save, one of nine during the match. The victory avenged a onegoal loss in triple overtime to the Lancers in last year’s championship match. St. Francis opened the match with a string of goals and led 6-3 at halftime. The Lancers pushed their lead to 8-3 with 16 left in the match before Paly mounted a comeback. Maya Benetar, Ami Drez, Allie Peery, Liana Pickrell and Gargiulo all scored in succession to tie the match at 8. Meanwhile, Paly defenders Sama Rao, a senior, juniors Paige Anderson and Sarah McDonnell, and sophomore Reid Walters helped keep the Lancers away from the goal. At 9:30, another goal by Peery gave Paly the lead. Peery finished with four goals. For six tense minutes, neither team scored until St. Francis evened the score at 9. Not for long. Two dramatic saves by Kinnaman, on free shots, and Gargiulo’s second crease roll of the evening, sent the Vikings on course to the championship. Palo Alto was expecting to face rival Gunn in the finals, but the Titans (15-3) saw their season end with the upset loss to Saratoga. In the opening round of the WBAL playoffs, Menlo-Atherton rolled to a 15-2 victory over visiting Notre Dame-San Jose on Tuesday. Menlo-Atherton was up 6-0 six minutes into the game on three goals from freshman Grace Tully and the Bears never looked back. Sophomore center Sally Carlson had five goals, two assists and eight self draws. N

Gunn sophomore Maya Miklos lowered her own school record and broke the meet record with a 42.87 victory in the 300 hurdles. That ranks Miklos No. 9 in the state and No. 3 in the CCS. Miklos also was third in the 100 hurdles with a personal best of 15.34 and ran a leg on Gunn’s third-place 1,600 relay team. Gunn senior Adriana Noronha had a pair of personal bests while winning the shot put (39-9) and discus (125-8). Palo Alto’s lone victory came from Anna Dukovic in the high jump at 5-0. In the boys’ meet, defending champion Palo Alto was solid in the sprints but came up short in the field events and scored 86 points to finish third behind Los Gatos (100) and Los Altos (95). Gunn was fourth with 68 points. Palo Alto performed well where expected. In the 400 relay, the Vikings won in 43.38 despite a slow start. Eli Givens turned in a great second leg to put Paly in position to win. Gunn was second in 44.16. Senior Nick Sullivan, who anchored the relay, came back to win the 400 in a season-best 49.14 and edged Givens in the 200, 22.12 to 22.13. Givens took the 100 in 10.90, an event where he leads the CCS at 10.77. The Vikings also took the 1,600 relay with a season best of 3:26.05 with the foursome of Tommy Vonghom, Dami Bolarinwa, Givens and Sullivan.

he question is will she or won’t she? And the answer? She will. That would be Gunn senior Sarah Robinson’s decision on what to run at the SCVAL Championship Meet on Friday at Santa Clara High. Robinson, who pulled off a remarkable triple at last week’s SCVAL De Anza Division Track and Field Championships at Gunn High, was expected to drop one of her events and concentrate on just one or two for the remainder of the season. Gunn coach PattiSue Plumer says not so fast. Robinson will run the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 in the qualifier, where the top six finishers (plus those achieving automatic qualifying marks) in each event advance to the Central Coast Section semifinals on May 24 at San Jose City College. “She is going to run all three at this meet and then we will decide,” said Plumer. Robinson qualified for the CIF State Meet last year in both the 1,600 and 3,200. Obviously, a triple at that level is pretty much unheard of. Robinson’s three wins at the league finals put the Titans in position to earn a share of the league title, but Gunn came up short in a few other areas and lost to Los Gatos. The dual-meet champ Wildcats scored 142 points while Gunn tallied 133 as Robinson put on one of the finest distance displays in league history. She opened with a 4:58.14 victory in the 1,600, a rather pedestrian time for her. But, she had to conserve her energy for two more races. “The plan was for a hard 800 and the rest was for points,” explained Plumer. “Sarah had a great day.” Robinson ran even splits in the 800 and won by more than eight seconds in 2:11.09. That broke the meet record of 2:15.81 by Paly’s Mia Lattanzi in 2008 and eclipsed the Gunn record of 2:11.36 by Kieran Gallagher in 2010. The time ranks Robinson No. 5 in the state this season. Robinson closed out her recordbreaking day by winning the 3,200 in 10:42.94. That broke the mark of 10:49.50 set by Gunn’s Tori Tyler in 2005. Robinson holds the school mark with a 10:16.98 run earlier this year. Thus, she owns school marks in all three events. Despite Robinson’s effort, the Gunn girls just missed overtaking favored Los Gatos.

by Keith Peters ot weather couldn’t stop the Menlo School boys tennis team on Wednesday, nor could Bellarmine Prep in the Central Coast Section Team Tournament semifinals. It was 98 degrees in Los Gatos before the Knights wrapped up their 6-1 victory over the Bells at Courtside Club. Temperatures on the hardcourts probably felt higher. Nothing, however, seems to faze Menlo in its annual march to the section finals. The topseeded Knights (20-3) will play for a sixth straight CCS crown on Friday, taking on No. 2-seeded Saratoga (20-0) at Courtside Club at 1:30 p.m. The teams should enjoy the forecast of 84-degree weather after battling extreme heat Wednesday. The Falcons advanced by ending No. 3 Menlo-Atherton’s fine run, 5-2, at the Los Gatos Swim & Racquet Club. Menlo and Saratoga will be meeting for the first time this season and in the section title match for the third time in the past 10 years. The Knights prevailed in 2010 by a 4-3 count with the Falcons posting a 6-1 win in 2004. Menlo will be gunning for its 13th overall CCS title. Should the Knights win their sixth straight crown, they will tie themselves (1998-2003), Monta Vista (19972002) and Palo Alto (1991-96) for the second-most in section history. Gunn won seven straight from 1972-78, a record within Menlo’s grasp. Menlo played without No. 1 singles player Victor Pham, who suffered a hip-flexor injury on Sunday and was relegated to doubles on Monday. The Knights also missed No. 2 singles player Lane Leschly, who was struck in the head by his surfboard recently and suffered concussion symptoms. Even without those two, Menlo swept the singles behind David Ball (6-3, 6-1), Vikram Chari (6-1, 6-2), Gunther Matta (6-2, 6-1) and Nathan Safran (6-1, 6-2), the latter of whom normally plays at No. 1 doubles. In the other semifinal, MenloAtherton and Saratoga battled extreme heat and each other in a match that could have gone either way. After the first four matches were completed, all in straight sets, the score stood 2-2. At that point, the first three singles matches were split and headed to third sets. Saratoga prevailed by winning all three. M-A senior Scott Morris had three match points to win the second set at No. 1, but let the advantage slip away. He wound up

M-A took No. 1 doubles behind Saul Menjivar and Axel Brenner and No. 4 singles with freshman Casey Morris posting the win. Baseball Behind the stellar pitching of sophomore Davis Rich, who was making only his second start of the year, Menlo School advanced to the semifinals of the inaugural Peninsula Athletic League Tournament with a 5-4 victory over visiting Half Moon Bay on Wednesday. Rich threw a complete game, allowing only one earned run on five hits while walking no one and striking out four. He needed only 80 pitches as Menlo improved to 15-12. The game tied at 4 heading to the bottom of the seventh. After a lead-off walk to Carson Gampell, John Bergeson lined a two-out single off the fence in left field to score pinch-runner Michael Shames, who had advanced to second on a ground ball. Also reaching the semifinals was Menlo-Atherton, which bounced Aragon with a 6-5 victory. Senior Lawson Joos’ perfectly executed squeeze bunt scored two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to carry the Bears to victory. In the SCVAL De Anza Division playoffs, Palo Alto needed a victory at Saratoga on Thursday to force a winner-take-all championship game Friday on the Vikings’ field at 4 p.m. On Tuesday, Paly (15-13) let a 3-0 lead get away and suffered an 8-4 loss to Saratoga.

That earned him a playoff and he made the most of his opportunity by winning the playoff on the second extra hole to advance to next week’s NorCal Championships. Ackerman chipped in from just off the green after flying a wedge shot. SHP senior Bradley Knox just missed the playoff after shooting a 1-over 72. The Gators shot 387 as a team and needed to shoot 374 to tie Mitty for third and force a playoff for the final Nor Cal team berth. N

Junior Iris Chin has pitched Gunn into the CCS playoffs. lead back up to two in the bottom of the fifth as Chin scored from third on a wild pitch. Cupertino threatened to tie the game up in the top of the sixth inning, as the Pioneers loaded the bases with nobody out. However, Chin pitched through the trouble, retiring the next three batters while allowing only a single run to score on a wild pitch. In the top of the seventh, Cupertino mounted one last rally against Chin, as Jordan Amick tripled with one out. Chin buckled down once again, striking out Leah Ramirez and coaxing a fly out to end the game. “She always finds a way to make it work,” Maltz said of his pitcher. “Iris has gotten in jams before like that and she’s been able to rely on her defense to back her up. And then there are times where she just sucks it up and gets the strikeout that we need.” On Thursday, Gunn squared off at home against crosstown rival Paly. With a Gunn win, or a Mountain View loss against host Milpitas, the Titans won the division title outright. The Vikings (4-7, 14-12) won be playing in the postseason this year, but still can run Gunn’s title plans. Palo Alto celebrated its Senior Day with an 8-3 victory over visiting Fremont on Tuesday. The Vikings overcame a 2-0 deficit in the first inning by scoring four runs in the third and fourth frames. Sophomore Maddie Martinson had two hits and drove in three runs for Paly while senior Julia Saul and junior Casey Glassford each had two hits and two RBI. Seniors Hannah Bundy, Tori Destefano and Emma Noroian all made the most of their final home game by producing two hits each. Saul pitched a complete-game seven-hitter, allowing only two earned runs while striking out eight. (For results of the Paly-Gunn game Thursday, go to www.pasportsonline.com) N

really raised him with the right moral values. He is polite, works hard, is a good friend, and he is humble about his abilities. He is smart, obviously — going to Stanford — talented and yet his friends can see him clearly as a peer. “(He is) someone who likes to laugh, joke, have a good time. He talent never got into his head. He is just a very nice young man who happens to be really, really fast!!! And, he is dedicated to continuing to find ways to work hard and swim fast. He is very similar to (former Paly All-American) Jasmine (Tosky) in the fact that they are just good people who have a gift. But, they have learned to be a part of a team and share that gift, rather than thinking it is only about them.” Kevin Morris, who coaches Howe, has similar thoughts on his senior standout. “Obviously it will be impossible to replace Ally next year, but, more than that, I’ll miss her personally a ton,” Morris said. “I had the privilege of teaching her this year in AP Statistics, and it so amazing to see how the incredible work ethic she shows in the pool translated to the classroom. It’s a cliche to say that accomplished swimmers like Ally sacrifice so much with hour after hour of morning practice, but Ally takes that same attitude to everything she does, including her math homework. She’s also one of the kindest, sweetest people I’ve ever met, and she has embraced that role on our team, complimenting everyone on their best times and helping out the younger swimmers with their starts and turns. “As she’s winding up her CCS career, she’s more relaxed and just enjoying her team, and I can’t wait to see what she does at CCS this weekend; I think it is going to be something special. She’s

sort of been the public face of our program since she’s arrived, and I couldn’t think of a nicer representative and role model.” Both Liang and Howe could take down a record or two this weekend as they close out their respective careers. Howe owns the CCS mark in the 100 back with a 52.32 from last year. That just missed the national private school record. She’ll go after her own mark as well as defend her 200 IM title. Liang’s best record shot is in the 100 fly, where SHP grad Tom Kremer’s 47.12 from 2012 is clearly within reach. Liang won the CCS title last season in 47.19 and could be the first section swimmer to break 47 seconds. Liang’s personal best is a meet record of 46.88, which came at the 2014 Southern Zone/Speedo Champions Series in College Station, Texas in late February while he was helping PASA win the team title. The national public school record is 45.89. Coincidently, Tosky owns the girls’ national public school record (51.92), set in the CCS prelims in 2011. “Our team has a goal in mind,”

unn might have a young overall team, but the Titans have become grizzled veterans at playing in tight ballgames. Coming into Tuesday afternoon’s matchup against Cupertino, Gunn had played in a total of six one-run contests this season. With so much experience playing in close games, it was no surprise that Gunn was able to keep its composure with a Central Coast Section berth on the line. The Titans received seven stellar innings on the mound from their star pitcher, junior Iris Chin, to help them defeat the visiting Pioneers, 3-2, and clinch no worse than a share of the SCVAL El Camino Division championship. “The No. 1 goal coming into the season was to win league,” Gunn head coach Matt Maltz said. “We still aren’t quite there yet since our goal is to be sole champions . . . but, I’m very proud of this team. This is where we wanted to be.” With a co-championship secured, Gunn clinches a spot in the upcoming CCS playoffs for the first time since 2010. With so many young players on the team coming back for next season, Maltz felt it was important for his girls make it to CCS this season to expose them to playoff softball. “I’ve got 11 out of 12 players returning next year,” Maltz said. “Most of our starters are sophomores and they’ll have a lot of experience now. But, our sights are still set on finishing this season out and making a difference.” Chin pitched another brilliant game for the Titans, allowing just one earned run and striking out eight to lower her season ERA to a paltry 1.12. The junior, who had previously no-hit the Pioneers in five innings on April 8, complimented Cupertino on the adjustments they made against her Tuesday. “They were easily tracking some of my rise balls today,” Chin said. “That’s what I was getting them out on in the first game so kudos to them for that.” Gunn got on the scoreboard first in the third inning, as junior Natalie Oda led off the inning with a single, and Chin drove her home with a triple to right field. Sophomore Emma Wager followed up with an RBI single to give Gunn an early 2-0 lead. The Pioneers struck back with an RBI single from sophomore Agnes Jang in the top of the fourth, but Gunn stretched the

said Liang, referring to the Vikings taking aim at ending Bellarmine’s streak of 29 straight section titles. “I have my own individual goals . . . I’m confident for what can happen. This is my last dance. Hopefully, I can make it a good one.” Liang is coming off a performance where he had a hand in three meet records and one school mark while helping his team defend its title at the SCVAL De Anza Division Championships at Gunn High last Friday. Liang started the league finals by winning the 50 free in 20.33, breaking the meet record of 20.50 set by Joe Bottom in 1973. It was the oldest meet mark left on the books. Liang also erased his school record and earned automatic All-American status while recording one of the fastest times in CCS history. “I was relatively pleased with that,” Liang said. Just a short while later, Liang splashed to victory in the 100 fly in 47.74, lowering his own meet record of 47.88 when he knocked the legendary Mark Spitz out of the record books last season. That, too, was an automatic AllAmerican time. Liang returned in the 200 free relay, where he anchored the Vikings to a meet record of 1:25.91, the No. 2 time in school history that erased the 1:26.21 time Paly set last year. Finally, Liang anchored the 400 free relay to victory in 3:07.50, fastest in the CCS this season. He clocked 45.21 on his leg as the team of senior William Lee, junior Winston Wang and freshman Alex Liang earned All-American consideration. That wrapped up a 504-point effort for Paly, which won its fourth straight league meet title. Gunn was second with 400. Palo Alto also won the opening 200 medley relay with a meet record of 1:35.48. Andrew Cho, Scott Powell, Alex Liang and Winston Wang made up the squad. Andrew Liang will compete on that team at CCS. Lee added a victory in the 200

IM (1:52.84, No. 2 seed for CCS) and set a meet record of 50.22 in the 100 back (also No. 2 seed for CCS), in addition to swimming on the 200 free and 400 free relays. Cho swam on two record-setting relays and took second in the 100 back (52.46). Alex Liang prepared to follow in his older brother’s footsteps by taking second in the 200 free (1:42.00, No. 3 for CCS) and 500 free (4:32.96, No. 3 CCS), making him the fastest freshman in school history in those events. Gunn was led by sophomore Daichi Matsuda, who set a school record of 4:32.60 (No. 2 seed for CCS) while winning the 500 free. Matsuda set another school mark while taking second in the 100 fly in 49.56, an automatic All-American time and the No. 2 CCS time behind Liang. The Titans also got solid efforts from Joao Ama in the 50 free (21.12) and 100 free (47.76). In the girls’ meet, Monta Vista swam away with the title with 414 points and looks to be a solid contender for the CCS title. Palo Alto was a surprising second with 398.50 while defending champion Gunn was third with 394 as only 20 points separated the top three teams. The individual standout was Gunn junior Jenna Campbell, who won the 200 free in 1:47.37 and broke her own school record in the 500 free with a 4:49.73 clocking. Both were automatic All-American times. She ranks No. 1 in CCS in both events. “I was happy with both, especially the 500,” Campbell said. “I wasn’t expecting to go that fast. This just builds confidence, knowing that I can go faster.” Campbell also swam a leg on the winning 200 medley relay team that clocked 1:48.73 and led off the second-place 400 free relay (3:29.74). Senior Gabrielle Bethke won the 100 free in 51.42 and swam on two runner-up relay teams. Palo Alto freshman Grace Zhao also stood out. She won the 50 free in a season-best 23.56 — defeating Bethke’s best of 23.84 — and took the 100 breast in 1:03.98.

Paly senior William Lee ranks No. 2 in the CCS in the 100 back. “And she can go faster at CCS,” said Dye. WBAL Championships While Howe is the defending CCS champ in the 200 IM and 100 back and will seek to defend those titles this week, Morris decided to change things for the West Bay Athletic League championships. He entered her in the 500 free and 100 breast. “She will be the prohibitive favorite in almost every event, and, since SHP is the prohibitive favorite to win the meet, we’re taking this opportunity to have her try some unusual events one last time,” Morris explained before the meet. “Also, those two events are probably our weakest as a team, so Ally is always happy to fill in whatever the team needs. We have other swimmers who are also strong in Ally’s best events.” Despite having Howe in “off” event, Morris wound up looking like a genius as everything worked out as planned. The SHP girls scored 504 points to successfully defend their league title in their own pool and Howe won both of her individual events. And how. Howe set league and school records in both the 500 free and 100 breast, clocking 4:44.53 and 1:04.05, respectively. The 500 time not only surpassed the automatic All-American time of 4:52.31, but it’s the second-fastest in CCS history behind Tosky’s

4:43.96 for Palo Alto at the 2009 CCS meet. “Ally Howe’s 500 free was impressive,” explained Morris. “She earned the 50 free, 100 free, and 200 free CCS cuts in the first two, four, and eight laps, respectively. Her 50 time was 0.08 away from the time that won the 50 (24.80), and she would have won the 100 and 200 individual events. Her time would have won CCS last year by over four seconds.” Howe also swam the leadoff leg on the 200 medley relay team that clocked 1:47.02 to set league and school records. Senior Selby Sturzenegger, sophomore Kayla Holman and freshman Kathryn Bower finished off the relay. In the 200 free relay, Howe led off again and the Gators won in 1:36.52 for another league and school record with the same relay members as the medley squad. Sturzenegger added a victory in the 200 free (1:55.11), Bower won the 50 free (24.80) and 100 free (54.37) with Holman winning the 100 fly (59.77). Castilleja finished second with 277 points with Heidi Katter winning the 100 back (55.39) and anchoring the 400 free relay to victory in 3:47.89. In the boys’ meet, Sacred Heart Prep also defended its title. The Gators piled up 571 points to hold off Menlo School, which had 424.5. Chris Hinrichs led the Gators by winning the 200 free (1:46.72) and 500 free (4:50.88). He also swam on the winning 200 free relay (1:30.08) and 400 free relay (3:22.57). Nelson Perla-Ward won the 100 free for SHP in 49.93 and Will Conner took the 100 back in 57.10. Conner swam on the 200 medley and 400 free relays with Perla-Ward adding legs on both free relay squads. PAL Championships The Burlingame and MenloAtherton swim programs finished one-two during the PAL Bay Division boys’ and girls’ dual-meet season, with the Panthers handing the Bears losses. That set up yet another showdown in the league championships on Saturday at Burlingame High.

Once again, it was the Burlingame girls and boys surfacing with league titles. The Bears, however, didn’t go down without a fight as the M-A girls forced the meet to the final relay and the M-A boys lost by only 26 points. The M-A girls nearly defended their championship meet title, but came up just short as Burlingame scored 526.5 points to M-A’s 522. The meet came came to the final 400 free relay, where Leah Goldman’s 50.8 anchor carried the Panthers to victory in 3:34.30 while the Bears clocked 3:36.65. Prior to that, M-A’s Maddie Pont had clocked 1:07.52 to finish second behind Julie Williams of Burlingame (1:06.91) in the 100 breast, M-A’s Kindle Van Linge (59.19) had taken second to Goldman’s 56.19 in the 100 back and the Bears (1:41.92) had finished second to the Panthers’ meet-record 1:38.64 in the 200 free relay. Pont, Van Linge and Nicole Zanolli did bring home individual victories for M-A. Pont won the 200 free in 1:54.33 with fellow senior Zanolli second in 1:55.31. Van Linge, yet another senior, won the 100 fly in 56.61 and Zanolli won the 500 free in 5:05.80.

The M-A girls got the meet off to a good start by beating Burlingame in the 200 medley relay with a 1:49.75 time. Sophomore Alexa Finn joined Zanolli, Pont and Van Linge on the winning squad. Burlingame, however, bounced back with a 1-2-3 finish in the 200 IM and added a sixth to outscored M-A in the championship finale, 66-14. The Bears did go 1-2 in the 100 fly with sophomore Maddie Worden (1:00.81) taking second to Van Linge but, for the most part, Burlingame led the Bears to the finish line. In the boys’ meet, Burlingame scored 448 points to M-A’s 422 to successfully defend its league meet title. Junior Zach Goland led the Bears by winning the 200 free in 1:46.60 and taking second in the 100 fly in 53.05. He also led off the secondplace 200 free relay (1:31.22) that trailed only Burlingame’s meet record of 1:29.12. Goland also led off the 400 free relay team that clocked 3:18.92 for third. M-A sophomore Vincent Busque was second in the 500 free (4:49.41) and third in the 200 free (1:47.54). N

inspiring,” Dries said. “We had full confidence that whoever was in there was going to get the job done.” In other words, it wasn’t about any one individual, it was about the support each gave their teammates. Anna Yelizarova and Ashley Grossman, arguably, scored the game’s biggest goals. Yelizarova scored with two seconds left in the first half and Grossman scored the tying goal with one second left in the third quarter. “Those are huge momentumbuilders,” Tanner said. “Critical moments to be get back into the game. It’s just a matter of these guys doing what they do all the time. We set the second half up with what we did in the first half. We got great contributions from throughout our lineup and then we turn Kaley (Dodson) loose on them. We’ve turned a bunch

of games by turning her into a primary defender. She’s an absolute lock down, and we can press and we can counterattack. It’s something that has gone under appreciated and has been accruing throughout the course of the game.” Grossman and Dodson each scored twice for Stanford, which scored seven consecutive goals after falling behind, and did not allow another goal against. “I remember thinking, going into the final period tied, there were eight minutes of water polo left and I better leave it all in the pool,” Dodson said. “Nothing was going to stop us, that’s for sure.” Stanford goalie Gabby Stone and the Cardinal defense came up big in the second half. Stone, who made three saves, recorded one huge save that stopped a Bruins’ power-play opportunity. Dries, named the tournament MVP, scored from the two-meter slot at the 4:52 mark of the third quarter and Grossman scored a beautiful goal on the power play

with two seconds left to tie the game entering the final period. Maggie Steffens and Kelsey Suggs were moving the ball quickly just before Steffens found Grossman, who delivered with her backhand. “When you see a teammate going for it right beside you, that’s inspiring,” Dries said. “I look over and see Kaley grinding away at the counterattack. I think everybody stepped up in their own way.” The senior class can make a clear class as the best yet to go through Stanford. Dodson, Dries, Suggs, Kaitlyn Lo and Lexie Ross helped the Cardinal to an overall record of 108-7, and is the only senior class to be part of three national championships. “We’ve had wins before but it wasn’t going to mean anything unless we tore them apart,” Dodson said. “I was thinking about it. All the wins in the past would not have mattered unless we won this one.” Steffens and Kiley Neushul joined Dries on the all-tournament team for the Cardinal. MenloAtherton grad Becca Dorst, who plays for UCLA and is the older sister of Stanford goalie Emily Dorst, also was named to the alltournament team. “That was awesome,” Tanner said. “These guys were sensational. This championship game, in my mind, started in February with a loss to UCLA. We owe them a lot for forcing us to get better. The story of this team is they have been comprehensively unified.” Grossman gave Stanford the early lead with a goal just under three minutes into the contest. The Cardinal later missed a penalty shot. The Bruins tied the score with a lob into the net with three minutes left in the first period and took the lead with 1:28 remaining. The Bruins added a goal in the first minute of the second period when Stone came out of the net after a loose ball and India Forster was able to slap it past her for the goal. Dodson, who was also came up with several critical defensive plays in the final period, scored with 5:07 left in the first half but UCLA responded with a goal 21 seconds later. “Our team has been cohesive this year,” Dodson said. “Defense has been our mentality the whole way through the season. It certainly served us well this game and I’m proud of it.” Kodi Hill gave the Bruins a 5-2 lead when she scored on a spectacular long throw that just beat the shot clock with 19 seconds left. Yelizarova’s ensuing power-play goal brought the Cardinal within 5-3 at halftime and helped set the stage for the final celebration. The national title also extended Stanford’s NCAA record of winning at least one national championship for 38 consecutive school years. N
