Mmm, apples. Five kinds were available from GHJ Tree Farm, based in Los Gatos, and one of about eight vendorgrowers who brought their goods to the Mountain Goat Farmers’ Market in Skylonda on Wednesday, Oct. 10. Organizers plan to put on a market every Wednesday between 3 and 7 p.m. or dusk, whichever is sooner. The goods at this one included two kinds of cake, cut rosemary and amaranth, and grass-fed beef.

Farmers’ market debuts (again) in Skylonda By Dave Boyce Almanac staff writer

S

kylonda residents had an opportunity on Wednesday, Oct. 10, to sample Indonesian coffee embodying “notes of black cherry and black plum” and cake frosting made from Earl Grey tea and bergamot. Items for sale included five varieties of apples, many varieties of peppers and herbs, and coastal wildflower honey. The first officially sanctioned Mountain Goat Farmers’ Market opened in a parking lot near the corner of Highway 84 and Skyline Boulevard at around 3 p.m. with a ribbon cutting by Woodside Mayor Dave Tanner, Also present were Town Council members Anna Kasten and Peter Mason and Planning Director Jackie Young, said market manager Maggie Foard. The market’s debut on Aug. 1 had met with enthusiasm all around, but town officials nixed a repeat in keeping with the municipal code and a stipulation that prohibited outdoor sales at that site. With the council and the Planning Commission having resolved those issues, a weekly Wednesday afternoon market is now likely. How did last week’s market go? “Great. We had a wonderful opening,” Ms. Foard said. At about 5:30, a scattering of customers and vendors wandered about, some perhaps coming close to shivering in the mountain air. Oscar Nunez, a Menlo Park resident and a cof-

fee importer, exporter, and roaster at Honducafe, talked up the hidden popularity of Honduran coffee and the coffees he was selling that day: decaf Peruvian, “nutty” Brazilian, and an Indonesian with its reported hints of cherry and plum. This reporter had no comment as it was too late in the day to be drinking coffee. From George Johnson, owner of GHJ Tree Farm on Skyline Boulevard in Los Gatos, were apples: pippins, Granny Smiths, red delicious, Fuji and Jonathons. He has more varieties from his 40-tree orchard, but it’s late in the season, he said. He’s been selling apples to health food stores for 40 years; this was his first foray at a farmers’ market. “I’ve done OK,” he said. “I don’t have a whole lot to compare with.” Many sampled free cake of two kinds — mocha, and blood orange with Earl Grey frosting — from Carren Dixon of Santa Cruz-based Buttercup Cake and Farm House Frosting. “Today, I’m giving away cake. Business has been amazing,” she said when asked how the day had gone. Dessert bakers would seem to have a dilemma: weight control in the constant presence of sugar and fat. “I love cake,” Ms. Dixon replied when asked to comment. “It’s my favorite food. I have to say I climb a lot of stairs. If I have to park on the third floor, I get a cupcake that day.” “You can’t make cupcakes,” she added, “without tasting them.”

Breakfast benefits Peninsula Bridge “Be the Torch” is the theme of a benefit breakfast for the Peninsula Bridge program, to be held from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club, 2900 Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park. Doors open at 7 a.m. Peninsula Bridge has a summer program that brings motivated middle-school students from lower-income families onto such campuses as Menlo School, Sacred Heart Prep and Menlo-Atherton High School for academic courses and enrichment activities. Since the program began in 1989, more than 5,000 students have been involved. Most of the students come from the Ravenswood school district in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto, and the Redwood City and San Mateo-Foster City districts. The breakfast is free. A donation may be made at the end of the event. Visit peninsulabridge.org for more information.

‘Dine Out’ benefit Forty restaurants will donate 10 percent of each diner’s check to the Peninsula Volunteers’ “Dine Out for Meals on Wheels” on Tuesday, Oct. 16. The Meals on Wheels program serves residents in San Mateo County, delivering more than 150,000 hot meals each year to those in need. In addition, homebound seniors receive safety-wellness checks. Local restaurants taking part in “Dine Out” include, by city: Menlo Park: Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria, Bona Restaurant, Carpaccio, Celia’s Mexican Restaurant, El Cerrito Mexican Restaurant, Gambardella’s, Lutticken’s After 5, Menlo Grille, Menlo Hub, Round Table Pizza, and Trellis. Portola Valley: Parkside Grill. Woodside: Alice’s Restaurant, Woodside Bakery.

Portola Valley: Film, program on bullying Filmmaker Sunnie McFadden-Burtis, who produced the Canadian documentary, “Bullying: A Culture of Silence,” will show the film and give a presentation on the topic at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Portola Valley Library, 765 Portola Road in Portola Valley. She will discuss the profound consequences

he incumbent served three terms as a San Mateo County supervisor before being sent two years ago to Sacramento, where his record suggests he knows how to find bipartisan support for his bills. And, he’s a Democrat in a heavily Democratic district. The Republican challenger has held no elective office, but served for a time as chair of the San Bruno Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee. It’s not hard to see how this race will go. Rich Gordon of Menlo Park is asking voters to return him to Sacramento next year to represent residents in District 24. He now represents District 21, but redistricting has altered boundaries, and areas of the Midpeninsula that he’s represented since December 2010, including his hometown, are now in District 24. In addition to Menlo Park, the newly reconfigured district includes Atherton, Woodside, Portola Valley, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos Hills, Sunnyvale, and most of the San Mateo County coastside from El Granada south. Challenger Chengzhi “George� Yang of Menlo Park, a software engineer, has criticized Mr. Gordon for “not listening to the people of the district,� especially on topics such as high-speed rail. “My mission is to really listen to people and hear what they want to see changed in Sacramento,� he said. During his tenure in Sacramento, Mr. Gordon introduced 35 bills, with 26 signed into law. The 74 percent success rate is the highest in the Assembly, he noted. Among the bills he pushed through this year is AB 481, which was signed by the governor in September. The bill, which was supported by the Fair Political Practices Commission, requires greater transparency for campaign spending by independent committees that are not controlled by a candidate.

Support Local Business

The candidates: Assemblyman Rich Gordon, left, and challenger George Yang are both from Menlo Park.

The bill was needed, Mr. Gordon said, because committees run ads and create campaign literature with no identification of who’s paying for it. AB 481 requires “identification of who’s behind the ad, and more (and more timely) reporting to the FPPC.â€? It will make it “far easier for the FPPC and others to track spending,â€? he said. Another component is the requirement that committees identify a person who would be accountable to the FPPC after the election. “Many of these committees right after an election go out of business — they disappear,â€? Mr. Gordon said. “That’s when a lot of violations are found ‌ but who do you contact? The entity no longer exists.â€?

ELECTION

Any change to FPPC law requires a two-thirds vote, Mr. Gordon noted, adding that it made his ability to achieve bipartisan support for his bills all the more critical. Asked for other highlights of his term, Mr. Gordon points to a bill he wrote that was signed into law that created financial incentives for California companies to remanufacture the plastic recyclables that are typically being shipped overseas — a jobs-boosting and environmentally superior strategy to deal with plastics — and another aimed at reducing fraud in recycling, which has been costing the state millions of dollars, he said. Mr. Gordon, who had been chairing a budget subcommittee in the Assembly, was appointed chair of the Business, Professions and Consumer Protection Committee last summer. He has yet to decide on bills he would introduce during a

second term, but noted that the “areas I have great interest in� are the environment and education. In the latter category, “I remain very concerned with inequity of funding in school districts, and the high drop-out rate.� Mr. Yang also lists education as one of his top two concerns, the state budget being the other. Of his inexperience in elective office, Mr. Yang said that as an engineer by training, he is a problem-solver and innovative thinker. He also said his strong skills as a negotiator would make him an effective legislator who could find bipartisan support. He has floated ideas about job creation, such as promoting ecotourism in the state’s areas of innovative sustainable and organic farming. “There are great organic farms in Half Moon Bay, for example,� he said. He also has introduced his own visions for pension reform and for the state’s planned highspeed rail system. His rail plan would route the train along the Altamont Pass, create a spur into Oakland, and boost ferry service to link the North Bay, San Francisco and the Peninsula to the Oakland hub. An Altamont route is supported by many on the Peninsula, who have fought the current plan to route the train along the Caltrain right-of-way into San Francisco. Mr. Yang criticizes Mr. Gordon for a July vote with the Assembly majority on a highspeed rail funding bill. He said the bill includes only a small amount of money for the electrification of Caltrains — a carrot for the Peninsula — with “no guarantee that it won’t be built with four tracks.� Mr. Gordon dismissed the criticism, and said there was a lot of misinformation reported in the media about the vote. The bill he voted for, he said, funded only ancillary components of the rail plan, but no actual highspeed rail construction. Those components are: electrification of Caltrain, modernization of the rail service between Los Angeles and Anaheim, new tracks in the Central Valley that will be used solely by Amtrak if high-speed rail isn’t built, and funding for rapid transit systems across the state. “There’s actually no highspeed rail activity in any of those projects,� he said.

Supervisor candidates run countywide, but should they? â–  With Measure B, voters can decide.

By Dave Boyce Almanac staff writer

V

oters in San Mateo County will have another chance in November to decide whether to change how the five supervisors who oversee county operations are elected. Measure B would switch from at-large elections, in which all the county’s voters choose each supervisor, to by-district elections, in which voting for a particular candidate is limited to voters who live in that candidate’s district. In electing supervisors at large, San Mateo County is unique among California’s 58 counties. Opportunities for voters to weigh in on this question have been infrequent. The last time was in 1980, when 56.5 percent of voters endorsed the at-large system. Voters had arrived at the same conclusion in 1978, but by a 52 percent vote. The Board of Supervisors’ oversight includes public health, the county jail and parks, child support, care for the aged and infirm, and local government in unincorporated areas. In 2010, the supervisors named a 16-member Charter Review Committee to study several county matters, including atlarge versus by-district election of supervisors. A committee majority voted to keep things as they are, but also recommended that the question be put before the voters in November 2010. The supervisors rejected that idea in a 4-1 decision on July 13, 2010, with then-Supervisor Rich Gordon dissenting. “The matter really needed to go to the ballot for

Local forums on state propositions The League of Women Voters of South San Mateo County invites the public to local forums to discuss state propositions on the Nov. 6 ballot. Local forums are set for these times: â–  7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at The Sequoias, 501 Portola Road in Portola Valley. â–  1:30-2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, at Little House Activity Center, 800 Middle Ave. in Menlo Park. League volunteers will present nonpartisan information and pro and con arguments on the various ballot propositions.

the citizens to make the decision,� Mr. Gordon said at the time. “The board has the discretion to make decisions to not put a particular matter on the ballot,� said then-supervisor Mark Church. “We are elected to make these kinds of decisions.� “Every resident gets five supervisors and I think that’s the way it should be,� Supervisor Carole Groom said at the time. “The Board of Supervisors decides what goes to the voters and the board has made its decision,� she said. “Why clutter the ballot?� Making the case

Ms. Groom, departing Supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson, and Sheriff Greg Munks are among the signatories to the ballot argument against Measure B. Congressional representatives Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park,

and Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, signed a rebuttal to the argument supporting Measure B. The opponents assert that when supervisors are elected by the entire county, they are

ELECTION

accountable to the entire county. “Your influence and ability to have your voice heard will be reduced if we turn to a system where elected representatives are only interested in their district,� the ballot argument says. By-district elections, they add, would lead to influence by

“special interests� and a shift toward parochial concerns by individual supervisors. “San Mateo County is different. And we believe that we’re better because we’re different,� they say. Fifty-seven counties can’t all be wrong, Measure B proponents say. “Every other county elects supervisors by district. District elections result in more competition, more accountability, more citizen involvement, and lower costs to taxpayers,� says the ballot argument for the measure. Supporters include county Supervisor Dave Pine, Menlo Park Councilman Peter Ohtaki and Menlo Park Fire Protection District board member Virginia Chang Kiraly. San Mateo County has about 340,000 registered voters, and it takes around $40,000 to reach

the likely voters with one directmail piece, candidates have told the Almanac. By-district elections would reduce the registered voter pool to about 68,000, opening the door to successful grass-roots campaigns and a more diverse pool of candidates, proponents say. “A supervisor campaign is a daunting and expensive proposition,� the ballot argument says. “As a result, the vast majority of San Mateo County supervisor races are uncontested or uncompetitive.� Since 1982, an incumbent has never lost an election, in about half the candidates ran unopposed, and in elections for open seats, about half have been competitive — margins of victory below 20 percent — according to statistics provided by Measure B proponents.

West Bay Opera delivers a winner Offenbach’s “Tales of Hoffman” is a challenging, complex fantasy by Mort Levine

N R EV I EW

W

est Bay Opera has brought in one of the most imaginative, emotional and intricate works in the entire standard operatic repertory, and made it work. “Les Contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann),” is the pinnacle of Jacques Offenbach’s vast career, by the 19th-century fabulist poet E.T.A Hoffmann. After 116 delightfully shallow but singable comic operettas, Offenbach spent his last years on a genuine masterwork of serious grand opera. On opening night on Oct. 12, the small stage of Palo Alto’s Lucie Stern Theatre came alive with a remarkably balanced cast of excellent voices and a most imaginative setting. A series of moving projections took us

on a tour of the four locations (Nuremberg, Paris, Munich and Venice) where Hoffmann’s alcohol-sozzled imagination met the four loves of his life. And where he was outwitted each time by a Mephistopheles-like adversary (Counselor Lindorf). Fortunately, his muse, a sort of fairy godmother, brought him back from despair; the ceaseless struggle between self-destruction and artistic creativity was decided in favor of the latter. Jose Luis Moscovich, West Bay Opera’s general director and conductor, has found and honed a brilliant cast headed by a trio of singers who took on the demanding roles of four diverse characters as the four fated love

affairs came crashing down on Hoffmann, sung with great brio by dramatic tenor Christopher Bengochea. The craftily satanic lawyer Lindorf was masterfully presented by bass-baritone Robert Stafford, who then was transfixed into a fiendish inventor; the evil Dr. Miracle; and finally a devilish captain. Soprano Rochelle Bard sang all four female lovers with velvety floating tones. She was a robotic wind-up doll as Olympia, and also sang Antonia, the tragic singer who must die when she sings too much; the courtesan Giulietta, who drives Hoffmann to murder a rival; and the one real-life love, Stella the opera diva. Mezzo Betany Coffland sang the pants role of Nicklausse, alternately a classic muse figure and a student sidekick of Hoffmann’s. Her magical vocal flights along with an athleticism brought the difficult role to life. Others in the cast giving outstanding performances included veteran bass Carlos Aguilar as Crespel, the desperately protective father of Antonia. Martin Bell, as the innkeeper Luther and also the murdered Schlemiel, showed a stirring baritone instrument, while Michael Desnoyers was a convincing Spalanzani, the tinkerer who put Olympia together. Trey Costerisan masterfully handled three grotesque lesser roles of a valet, an aide and a comic bumbler. Director Ragnar Conde moved his forces seamlessly as they danced and maneuvered the confines of the small stage. Jean-Francois Revon also deserves accolades for the set and video design. As conductor, Moscovich proved adept at smoothly bringing along the West Bay orchestra through the extreme difficulties of a score with music of uncompromising precision and frequent tempo changes. At the curtain, the opening-night audience rose in cheers and exited humming wonderful melodies. Over the past 130 years, critics and musicologists have debated what “Tales of Hoffmann” is really all about. There are theories about its resemblance to Faust and the devil. Others prefer the idea that the poet was seeing three strikingly different personalities in his varied fantasy lovers: the innocent (Olympia), the sensuous (Antonia), and the libertine (Giulietta). Others point to the conflictridden, emotional roller coaster as just a rousing good opera. See OPERA, page 25

But above all, this is a singers’ vehicle.

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. 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

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. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web WWW.PRIORITYPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this

case T09-49592-CA.
