They would be in some of our honors classes and feel kind of isolated and alone,” Mr. Losekoot explained. “So, if we could bring a lot of these students together, they would come to form connections and at least know each other, if not become friends.” This year, 48 students are participating in the Honors Institute, the largest class yet. Students are grouped in advanced English, math and science classes so that they go through the program together and become resources for each other. Students also take an elective class, where they learn skills necessary to succeed as

alifornia State Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, seems like a man who really could give you his life story in three minutes. He demonstrated his mastery of the elevator pitch before a crowd of about 35 people at a forum July 17 hosted by the Menlo Democrats club. Also in the spotlight was former Assemblywoman Sally Lieber, who represented District

22 in the California Legislature from 2002 to 2008. The two candidates face off in November for a seat in the newly formed state Senate District 13, which includes most of San Mateo County and portions of Santa Clara County such Palo Alto and Mountain View. The pair took turns answering four questions fielded by club president John Woodell over the course of 30 minutes in a back room at the Menlo Hub restaurant (formerly Oak City Bar &

Grill). First up, high-speed rail. Mr. Hill said he refused to support the newly passed high-speed rail bill until it incorporated electrification of Caltrain, provided stand-alone value to the Central Valley where the first segment will be constructed, and guaranteed a two-track design. He voted in favor of the bill, although rail watchdogs question whether the guarantee really exists. Ms. Lieber had a different

an honors student, such as communication and assertiveness. Cecelia Estrada, 16, an East Palo Alto resident, was one of the institute’s first students three years ago. The elective class was her favorite. “I learned to speak up more and to interact with others,” she said. “I made a lot of friends.” Cecelia, now a junior, is not only enrolled in AP courses, but has returned to the Honors program this summer to serve as a peer mentor. The mentors give presentations on good study habits and things to look out for during freshman year. They are available throughout classes to answer questions

and help students with their work. Although she may be the ideal example of the institute’s potential impact, many institute students don’t remain in advanced classes for even a year. But there’s another goal that’s harder to measure and it happens over time, said Mr. Losekoot. “Do these kids continue to feel like they’re connected to the school, that the school cares about them?” he said. “Do they continue to feel special? I think if we’ve achieved that on some level, if they have higher selfesteem because of that, they’re going to be more successful students no matter what classes they take.” A

endorsed by business lobbying groups,” Ms. Lieber said, hinting that her lack of endorsement by those same groups was a plus. Since the current Legislature has cut funding for education, she said, it’s time to ask business owners to give a little bit more to their communities. She also suggested focusing on renewable energy for job creation. Finally, the candidates shared how their “educational journeys” influence their policies. Both overcame early academic difficulties by attending community colleges, which Ms. Lieber described as the “engine of opportunity.” She would like to see curriculums emphasize individual and entrepreneurial creativity rather than multiplechoice tests. Mr. Hill, who flunked out of UC Berkeley his first year, turned to the College of San Mateo to regroup before going back to the university. “To me, the community college system really saved my educational career. I wouldn’t be here if they didn’t take everyone.”

on the Bay Area’s water supply. Mr. Hill voiced concerns over San Francisco getting to decide what happens to the water supply serving residents all along the Peninsula. “Do we have a voice in that? Yes,” he said. “But we don’t have a say.” He said one of the first pieces of legislation he would author, if elected, would be a bill guaranteeing that all Bay Area communities who rely on the reservoir would get a say in its future. Job creation was up next. Both candidates agreed that jobs are good, but had different approaches. Mr. Hill, who chairs the state Assembly’s biotechnology committee, advocated streamlining regulations for the biotech industry by removing redundancies, for example, to stimulate an innovative economy. People need “the right education and the right environment for job creation,” he said. “I think it’s good to talk about all those values. It gets you

CALIFORNIA WATER SERVICE COMPANY NOTICE OF APPLICATION FILING FOR A GENERAL RATE INCREASE IN THE BEAR GULCH DISTRICT Application No. 12-07-007 On July 5, 2012, California Water Service Company (Cal Water) filed its General Rate Case Application 12-07-007 with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The proposed water rates if adopted as a result of this application will not go into effect until January 1, 2014. This notice is to inform customers of Cal Water’s proposed request, and to explain how you can provide your comments to the CPUC and receive information for participating in this formal application process. WHAT IS A GENERAL RATE CASE? Every three years, investor-owned utilities such as Cal Water are required to file a General Rate Case (GRC) in which the CPUC sets annual revenue levels. Annual revenue is the total amount of money a utility collects through rates in a given year for specific purposes. The actual rates, or level of prices, charged to customers will be determined in this proceeding, and changes in rates may be different from changes in the annual revenue received by Cal Water because rate levels also depend on estimates of future water sales. WILL THIS APPLICATION RESULT IN A RATE INCREASE? Yes. If the CPUC approves Cal Water’s request, this GRC application would increase Cal Water’s authorized revenue by $5,556,320, or 15.9%, in 2014; followed by an increase in revenue by $1,865,920, or 4.6%, in 2015; and $1,859,130, or 4.4%, in 2016. Based on water usage patterns in your area, which have decreased significantly since Cal Water’s last filing, the CPUC’s approval of Cal Water’s proposed application would increase the typical residential customer’s monthly bill by $18.45, or 15.1%, in 2014; followed by additional increases of $4.92, or 3.5%, in 2015; and $5.09, or 3.5%, in 2016. Most costs of operating the water system are fixed, regardless of the level of usage. With lower water usage in your area, rates then have to be increased to cover these fixed costs. The top reasons for the increase are: s#AL7ATERISREQUESTINGMILLIONFORWATERINFRASTRUCTUREIMPROVEMENTSBETWEENAND s#AL7ATERISREQUESTINGTHOUSANDTORETAINTHESAMELEVELOFEMPLOYEEHEALTHCARE PENSIONS ANDRETIREEHEALTHCAREBENElTSFOR General Office personnel, the costs of which have increased faster than inflation s#AL7ATERISREQUESTINGTHOUSANDFORDISTRICTOPERATIONSANDMAINTENANCECOSTSNEEDEDTOMAINTAINANDOPERATETHEWATERSYSTEM s#AL7ATERISREQUESTINGTHOUSANDFORTHEALLOCATIONOF'ENERAL/FlCEOPERATIONEXPENSES s#AL7ATERISREQUESTINGTHOUSANDTORETAINFORDISTRICTPERSONNELTHESAMELEVELOFEMPLOYEEBENElTSDESCRIBEDABOVE Approval of the proposed rates would allow Cal Water to continue to maintain the system of water supply sources, pipes, tanks, fire hydrants, and equipment needed to provide safe and reliable water service. The following table shows the bill increase that a residential customer with typical water usage would see if Cal Water’s proposed rates for 2014 were adopted. (Note that bills may vary slightly due to temporary surcredits or surcharges that are in effect that month.) Also shown are the increases that a typical customer could expect in 2015 and 2016.

INFORMATION REGARDING PROPOSED 2015 AND 2016 RATES The rates proposed for years 2015 and 2016 are calculated by increasing the proposed 2014 rates by a simplified, inflation-based method required by the CPUC. Actual rates for 2015 and 2016 will be based on actual inflation rates. Please note that Cal Water’s application also requests authority to implement the 2015 and 2016 rate increases (based on actual inflation, and with CPUC oversight), without providing additional notice to customers at that time. This means that, if inflation is more than our current estimates, actual rates for 2015 and 2016 may be higher than those shown in this notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION A copy of Cal Water’s proposed GRC Application and related exhibits may be inspected at Cal Water’s office located at 3525 Alameda De Las Pulgas, Menlo Park, CA 94025. An electronic or paper copy of the proposed application and related exhibits will be furnished by Cal Water upon written request to California Water Service Company, 1720 North First Street, San Jose, CA 95112-4598. You may also call (408) 367-8200 to request for this information. Copies are also available to review at the CPUC’s Central Files Office in San Francisco at 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and noon daily. EVIDENTIARY HEARINGS The CPUC may schedule formal Evidentiary Hearings (EHs), whereby parties of record provide testimony and are subject to cross-examination before the CPUC’s Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). These hearings are open to the public, but only those who are parties of record can participate. The CPUC has its own court reporters who will record the comments of those formal parties of record participating in the EHs. After considering all proposals and evidence presented during the formal hearing process, the ALJ will issue a draft decision. When the CPUC acts on this application, it may adopt all or part of Cal Water’s request, amend, or deny the application. The CPUC’s final decision may be different than Cal Water’s application. The Division of Ratepayer Advocates is an independent arm of the CPUC, created by the Legislature to represent the interests of all utility customers throughout California and obtain the lowest possible rate for service consistent with reliable and safe service levels. DRA has a multi-disciplinary professional staff with experts in accounting, economics, finance, and engineering. After considering all proposals and evidence presented during the formal hearing process, the assigned ALJ will issue a proposed draft decision. When the CPUC issues a final decision on the application, it may adopt, amend, or modify all or part of the ALJ’s proposed decision as written. The CPUC’s decision may be different than Cal Water’s formal request. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION HEARINGS The CPUC welcomes the public’s participation. Before acting on Cal Water’s application, the CPUC will schedule Public Participation Hearings (PPHs) to provide customers an opportunity to provide their comments regarding Cal Water’s request before the assigned CPUC Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) for this proceeding. Notification of these hearings will be sent to customers of Cal Water either by a separate mailing post card or included as a bill insert. Notification will also be published in local newspapers and the CPUC’s Daily Calendar. The notice will identify all of the dates, times, and locations that the PPHs are being held for your convenience and planning. You may attend any one of the district hearings that are identified even if the hearing is not within your own district. CPUC PROCESS If you would like information to participate in this proceeding or wish to comment on this proposed application filing or informally protest this filing as a customer of Cal Water, you can do so by contacting the CPUC’s Public Advisor’s Office (PAO). You may send written comments to the Public Advisor’s address at 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102, or by email to public.advisor@cpuc.ca.gov. You may also call by phone at (415) 703-2074 or toll-free (866) 849-8390; TTY (415) 703-5282 or (866) 836-7525. Please refer to this application number A.12-07-007 in any communication, i.e., e-mail, written correspondence or phone call. These comments will become part of the formal correspondence file for this proceeding and will be circulated to the assigned Administrative Law Judge, Commissioners, and appropriate CPUC staff for review.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
