Gladys Martines of Woodside, who did not go to school and grew up in the fields and orchards of the Santa Clara Valley picking fruit for 23 years, went on to design barns all over Woodside, including this one in Woodside for John Sculley, former Apple Computer chief executive. Michelle Le/The Almanac

By Dave Boyce Almanac Staff Writer

he term “odyssey” is customarily reserved for an extraordinary journey, and it seems appropriate in describing the life of Gladys Martines, a resident of Woodside. Ms. Martines, now 78, was one of 14 children born to farm workers in the Santa Clara Valley in 1932, the height of the Great Depression. Saddled with illiteracy and a youth living in tent camps, she picked fruit for 23 years. She also went on to a career that engaged her in project management, architecture, land development and the local equestrian community. On Jan. 11, the Mounted Patrol of San Mateo County named her the 26th “Outstanding Horseperson of the Year.”

From child laborer to child benefactor, Gladys Martines helped develop Woodside’s extensive system of horse trails Ms. Martines is the fourth woman to be so honored by this men-only Woodside-based equestrian club. The award recognizes personal qualities such as an active role in the community, leadership in a profession or charity, and/or “outstanding” contributions to equestrian trails, facilities and horse-riding in San Mateo County. The patrol “is deeply honored to present this year’s award to Gladys Martines for her tireless, lasting contributions to our community for over 50 years, totally dedicated to improving and preserving our

countyís horse culture, trails and stabling,” said spokesman and former award-winner Bill Wraith in a statement. Ms. Martines spoke with The Almanac from her ranch in Penn Valley in Nevada County, just west of Grass Valley. A working childhood

To say that Ms. Martines has seen changes come to Silicon Valley is to understate the matter. How many people can drive by the San Antonio Shopping Center in Mountain View and truthfully say that they

once lived in a tent pitched on land now occupied by the Sears department store? That was in the 1930s, when her family survived by picking greens and fruits, whatever was in season, Ms. Martines said. The family would seek work from April to November in what were then agricultural fields throughout the Santa Clara Valley. Another frequent camp site was near the Uvas Reservoir in Morgan Hill, she said. She became “a daredevil,” she said. “I’ve never had anything to lose. What worse could you do than

living in a tent by the water?” While she eventually bought property in Woodside after having been married at 17 and having born two children, those first 28 years had some rough spots. Schooling, for example, did not happen for her. “That was the hardest part” of her childhood, she said. The long harvest season would not allow it. And she didn’t want it. An accident with fireworks at age 4 had left her burned over 75 percent of her body, including her face. “I looked like an old lady,” she said. The movie and short story “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” about a man who is born old and grows younger, reminded her of herself, she said, and added: “Now my scars match my age.” Her mother would try to change See GLADYS MARTINES, page 19

Camellia Society stages annual show Celebrating its golden anniversary, the San Francisco Peninsula Camellia Society will hold its 50th annual show and sale on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 12-13, at the Community Activities Building, 1400 Roosevelt Ave. in Redwood City. The show, which is free and open to the public, will feature more than 1,000 camellia blooms, a sale of new and hard-to-find camellia plants, and a workshop on rejuvenating old camellias. Show hours are noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. There will be free blooms at the end of the show. The public may enter blooms in the show between 8 and 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 12. Camellia Society members will be on hand to help prepare the blooms, which will be judged later that morning. Forty trophies will be awarded. A highlight of the show will be a workshop led by professional gardener Gene Fleet, who will show how to prune, pot, and plant neglected camellias. It is set for 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Caroline Beverstock, Camellia Society president, says the show provides an opportunity for “people who are intrigued by camellias to learn about these plants, which are so suited to our area.” At her home in Atherton, Ms. Beverstock tends camellias, planted by her mother 60 years ago, at the home she inherited. A member of Friends of Filoli, she is a docent for its camellia and fruit tree collections, as well as the house and garden in general. What was then called the Peninsula Camellia Society was launched in San Mateo in 1961 by a dozen members. It affiliated with the American Camellia Society and later joined neighboring groups to form the Northern California Camellia Council. The groups set dates for shows on different weekends each February and March, when camellias are at the peak of bloom. Many camellia growers travel the circuit, entering blooms in each show and serving as judges and clerks if needed, says a society

her mind, but working was for her a refuge. “I became very, very good in the field,” she said. “I couldn’t read, I couldn’t write, I couldn’t understand much of anything,” she said. At 11, her older sister got her enrolled in a San Francisco school, but her first report card came back with all Fs. “That was the end of my school career,” she said. She settled in 1961 in Woodside, where she built a house and a barn on Turkey Farm Road. To make ends meet, she took what work came her way, including fence building and painting, house cleaning, ditch digging, and selling wine for wealthy landowners, she said. Her rise began with a job with a vacuum tube manufacturer, for which she begged, she said. At the time, she could not fill out a job application, she told Bill Wraith, who wrote an account for The Almanac. She didn’t know the difference between one half of something and one third of it. But she learned. In four months, she was training new employees, Mr. Wraith said. After 10 years, she quit to try her hand at owning a working stable. Then she helped others in Woodside with their horse shelters, including 15 barns and more than 100 stalls. In the process, she helped develop Woodside’s extensive system of horse trails, Mr. Wraith said. Ms. Martines was chosen to oversee the subdivision of Woodside’s Why Worry Farm in 1986,

spokesman. The society’s Best Bloom in Show trophy honors the late John Houghton Hall, who died as a young man, while serving as president of the group in the late 1970s. The Best Novice Japonica trophy honors the late Howard Oliver, who started a public garden of camellias, rhododendrons, and azaleas at the USGS in Menlo Park, where he was a geophysicist. The Camellia Society donates plants to public gardens and parks throughout the Peninsula. It also rescues plants at risk of destruction and that need to be relocated. In 2005, it coordinated the transfer of a large Woodside collection to sites at Stanford University and Strybing Arboretum. The annual show is the local society’s major event. In early years, it was held in various cities. Now it is co-sponsored by the Redwood City Parks and Recreation Department. For more information about the show, call Linda Kancev at 574-1220.

WEST BAY SANITARY DISTRICT NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the District Board of West Bay Sanitary District will conduct a Public Hearing on Wednesday evening, February 23, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. in the District’s Administration Office located at 500 Laurel Street, Menlo Park, CA 94025. The purpose of the Public Hearing will be to consider a proposed increase in the existing residential and commercial customer rates, effective March 1, 2011 for the collection of waste/recyclable materials in the West Bay Sanitary District for calendar years 2011 and 2012. The need for this increase was discussed by the District Board at the December 8, 2010 Board meeting. WHAT ARE THE PROPOSED MAXIMUM RATES: Approximately seventy-eight point six percent (78.6%) of residential service containers are a 32 gallon size. The new rates for 2011 for a 32 gallon container would increase from $20.26 per month to $27.47 per month, equating to a $7.21 per month increase. The District’s proposed rates would remain amongst the mid-range of all the South Bayside Waste Management Authority agencies. The following table shows the current rates and proposed rates to be effective beginning March 1, 2011.

Rates for Other Services In addition to the monthly collection charge, various miscellaneous costs for special services such as back yard service or overage events will be charged to the customers who subscribe to these services. These rates are also proposed to be adopted effective March 1, 2011 and were provided in the Proposition 218 Notice. If you would like additional information on the proposed rates, please call the District at 650-321-0384. Any person interested, including all solid waste/recycling collection customers of the West Bay Sanitary District, may appear at the public hearing and be heard on matters related to the proposed increase in rates.

“If I want a Best Seller, I advertise in the Almanac and the Weekly.” – Lyn Jason Cobb As a Realtor serving Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside, I do my utmost to provide extraordinary service to my clients. The Almanac and the Palo Alto Weekly is always where I advertise first because I like the home delivery, editorial focus, and it is a great value. I have always had great results promoting open homes in the Palo Alto Weekly and The Almanac, and I also run in special publications like Spring and Fall Real Estate, Neighborhoods and Info Menlo because of the great coverage and online presence. I am also a big believer in the Palo Alto Weekly’s Open Home Guide, which is by far the most accurate and comprehensive. I’ve had many buyers bring in the guide to my ‘Open Homes’ to see what I have listed.”
