Facebook wants to make ‘clean’ site even cleaner $5.7 million West Campus remediation would exceed legal requirements By Sandy Brundage Almanac Staff Writer

hen Raychem was sold in 1999, it left behind about 40 acres of land and groundwater contaminated with industrial chemicals on its Constitution Drive campus. The next company to occupy the property in Menlo Park spent seven years scrubbing the soil until toxin levels were acceptable

for commercial and industrial use, according to the state. That’s not clean enough for Facebook. According to the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), the social networking company proposes to keep cleaning, even going so far as to have the dirty soil and the 11,400-square-foot cap installed over the contaminated area hauled away for dis-

posed at a licensed facility. The toxins include polychlorinated biphenyls and other chemicals associated with electronics manufacturing. “We didn’t want there to be any question whatsoever about our interest in meeting the appropriate standard,” said Facebook spokesman Tucker Bounds. A DTSC representative estimated that the proposed remediation

will cost $5.7 million. Once that’s finished, Facebook plans to knock down the existing structures to create a 440,000square-foot “West Campus” at 312-314 Constitution Drive that can accommodate up to 2,800 employees in five two- to four-story buildings clustered around a courtyard, according See FACEBOOK, page 19

COMMUNITY MEETING: The California Department of Toxic Substances Control will hold a community meeting Wednesday, Aug. 22, in Menlo Park on the cleanup plans for Facebook’s West Campus. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Senior Center at 110 Terminal Ave. Public comment may be submitted until Sept. 6 to project manager Chip Gribble at CGribble@dtsc.ca.gov or 700 Heinz Avenue, Berkeley CA 94710.

CAN THE WRONG SUNGLASSES BE WORSE THAN NONE?

When selecting sunglasses, do not allow yourself to be misled into thinking that darker lenses necessarily filter out sunlight and protect your eyes better than lighter lenses. There are lighter sunglasses lenses that provide 100 percent UV protection. On the other hand, sunglasses that do not block 99 to 100 percent of the light can prove more harmful to eyes than not wearing sunglasses at all. The fact is that dark lenses make your pupils

C O M M U N I T Y

dilate, which is the eyes’ response to allow in more light. If that light is not being properly filtered to block ultraviolet rays, it can inflict more damage. Therefore, be sure the sunglasses you choose block 99 to100 percent UV rays. The message has gotten through that too much sun is bad for the skin. But the damage of ultraviolet rays is not limited to the skin — your eyes are also at risk. Whether you spend time at the beach or just drive or walk outdoors, it is important to protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses with UV ray protection. At MENLO OPTICAL, we offer a large selection of sunglasses for everyone’s taste and lifestyle. Please call us at 322-3900, or visit us at 1166 University Drive, on the corner of Oak Grove Avenue and University Drive. P.S. Larger lenses and wraparound sunglasses with 99 to 100 percent UV protection provide the most benefit by covering more of the eyes and face.

Derby winner John French, a trainer in Woodside, won the $10,000 International Hunter Derby on Aug. 9 during the Menlo Charity Horse Show in Atherton. Dr. Daryl Hoffman, left, of Atherton, presents the blue ribbon and award to Mr. French. This was the first International Hunter Derby held in Northern California. Dr. Hoffman sponsored the event, which presents the horse and rider with a faster, more challenging course than the standard hunt course. The jumps are more difficult and higher, and are placed to showcase the horse’s agility. Winners qualify for a national championship in 2013, and the winners of that qualify for international competitions.

Wave of property crimes hits Menlo Park A walker, a generator, computers and a gun were among the items stolen in a wave of property crimes in Menlo Park over the past several days that included seven burglaries and three cases of theft, according to police reports. Among the residential burglaries, the largest loss — $5,620 — involved a broken bedroom window and the theft of a laptop computer, diamond ring, platinum ring and checkbook from a house on Hillview Avenue in a case reported Aug. 5. Two other home burglaries, both in the same block of Woodland Avenue, involved thefts of jewelry and electronic

gear on Aug. 7. In neither case did police report a value for the losses, but both involved entries through unlocked portals, in one case a window and in the other a garage door. Someone stole a generator valued at $1,200 from the bed of a truck after cutting a hole in the fence of a parking lot on Haven Avenue, according to a report for Aug. 6. In an Aug. 4 report of a commercial burglary on Bay Road, someone stole a wallet containing $65 in cash from the Flood Park Ranger Station. Another wallet was stolen on Aug. 7 from an unlocked residence on Henderson Avenue. The report

did not include an estimate of losses. Someone stole two pairs of jeans and five tank tops in a package delivered to a house on McKendry Drive and reported on Aug. 5. In that same case, someone broke a side window of the house, but nothing was missing from inside, police said. In three thefts reported on Aug. 4, 5 and 7, theifs stole a bicycle valued at $4,000 from a bike rack on a vehicle parked on Laurel Street, a handgun valued at $500 from an unlocked vehicle on Newbridge Street, and a walker from outside a residential back door on Crane Street, police said.

er. In many parts of the country, if it’s sticky, it’s summertime. “It was crazy hot in the South, and super humid, too,” Hayley said. “We’re so lucky to live here, with what we have.” And tempered by insects, particularly mosquitoes and gnats. Theirs is a simple demand, one that goes back millions of years: “Be still!” To which these riders replied, “Shoo!” A low-tech approach and not terribly effective, but preferable to a bug repellant that, once applied, became like a sticky second skin, Hayley

said. They showered about once a week. There were other animal sightings, but they lacked variety. “There are a lot of stray dogs in the South,” Hayley said, adding: “The South was full of armadillo carcasses (on the road). Lots of dead armadillos.” One resident told her she’d lived there 60 years and had never seen a live armadillo. Hayley is the daughter of Liz and Marty Korman. She has one younger brother and the family lives in Woodside’s western hills.

The situation could have been much worse had the property not been managed with firesafe practices such as trimming shrubbery to prevent a fire from climbing into the treetops, he said. “Luckily, the homeowner (practiced) real good fuel management,” Mr. Nave said. “The resident deserves a lot of credit.” The fire district sent 20 firefighters in the initial response after a 911 caller reported a house on fire, but scaled it back to eight after evaluating the situation, Mr. Nave said.

Voters to decide on Little League, Town Center issues By Renee Batti

N ATHERTON

Almanac News Editor

A

therton voters will be asked whether they want to see permanent Little League structures in HolbrookPalmer Park, and if funding for a planned new Town Center should be restricted primarily to private donations. The City Council voted 3-2 on Aug. 7 to put the two measures on the November ballot, along with a measure asking whether a

new library should be built in the park — a measure the council approved at an earlier meeting in an attempt to quell the outcry that has arisen over the issue since the project was approved by the council last fall. Council members Elizabeth Lewis and Jerry Carlson on Aug. 7 voted against placing the latest measures on the ballot, saying

that, unlike the situation with the library plan, residents have not been concerned about the proposed projects, and haven’t “clamored� for a vote. But the council majority argued that since there’s an election in November that will include choosing two council members and deciding the library question, it would be reasonable to ask voters about two other projects that will have a major impact on the town.

Brown Act lapses nix Menlo Park meetings By Sandy Brundage Almanac Staff Writer

A

t first glance, it looked like the Menlo Park Transportation Commission — like others — was enjoying some time off during the summer holiday season. The July 11 meeting was canceled; so was the Aug. 8 meeting. But it turns out the commissioners were ready and willing to work. City staff, however, failed to post the agendas as required by the Brown Act, the state’s open meeting law. The July agenda neglected to indicate that Commission Chair Ray Mueller would be participating via phone, as he was out of town. Because of

the oversight, he would not be allowed to participate at all and the commissioners opted to cancel the meeting, according to city transportation engineer Rene Baile. But then the August agenda failed to appear on time. The Brown Act states agendas must be posted 72 hours in advance of a regular meeting in a location freely accessible to the public. Sources attributed the second error to staff oversight. The commission will now hold a special meeting on Aug. 15 to catch up. Mr. Baile said that the meeting will incorporate items calendared for the July session. The agenda includes an update Continued on next page

Teen arrested for burglary After receiving a phone call reporting a suspicious person strolling around a house on Oakhurst Place on Aug. 9, Menlo Park police decided to take a look. They watched as a teenage boy wearing dark clothing and carrying a backpack emerged into the early afternoon sunshine from a yard further down the block. A check of the property revealed signs of a burglary, as did a search of the young man,

who was allegedly found with a stolen iPhone, black Guess watch, and Apple earphones and charger, police said. The 14-year-old East Palo Alto resident was booked into Hillcrest Juvenile Hall on suspicion of burglary, according to police. Police ask that anyone with information regarding this case to call them at 330-6300. — Sandy Brundage

Man sought for taking video of girl A girl at Willow Oaks Park reported that a man was shooting video of her, according to Menlo Park police. A warning circulating on a neighborhood email list said the man was near the playground and dog park around 11 a.m. on Aug. 6, and asked one girl where she lived, saying he was taking a video of her dog. The park is next to an elementary school at Willow Road and Coleman Avenue.

It carries area news and features that people in Woodside, Portola Valley and Atherton want to know about. When I list exceptional homes and estates, I want to get the word, and the pictures, out. The Almanac is a great way to do that.�

“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.�

997 All Other Legals NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE Trustee Sale No. 11-01026-3 Loan No: 0040168148 APN 080-072-100-3 YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED March 31, 2004. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On October 24, 2012, at 01:00 PM, at the Marshall Street entrance to the Hall of Justice and Records, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA, FIDELITY NATIONAL TITLE COMPANY, as the duly appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded on April 7, 2004, as Instrument No. 2004064822 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of San Mateo County, CA, executed by: YAN TING ZHANG, A SINGLE PERSON , as Trustor, in favor of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Inc., as Beneficiary, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, in lawful money of the United States, all payable at the time of sale, that certain property situated in said County, California describing the land therein as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 270 EL NIDO ROAD, PORTOLA VALLEY, CA 94028 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining unpaid balance of

the obligations secured by and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust (together with any modifications thereto). NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. 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.
