Special to the Almanac


he words “Silicon Valley entrepreneur” usually refer to someone involved in high-tech start-ups. Meet the exception: Kerri Stenson of Woodside. The 41 year-old mother of two is now on her third career. After practicing law and co-founding a small product business, she decided with “no experience” to become the owner, publisher and editor of a new quarterly magazine that just debuted last week: Edible Silicon Valley. The maga zi ne belongs to a network of 75 regional publica- Kerri Stenson tions in North America that range from Edible San Francisco to Edible Manhattan and focus on local food, drink, and the folks behind them.

of local food and drinks and the people who enjoy them,” Ms. Stenson says. A vegetarian herself for years, she believes in seeking out sustainable, organic and healthful foods, and sees the magazine as an extension of her own interest in buying seasonal and local produce. The magazine, she says, will have ongoing stories about gardens and where food comes from in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Ms. Stenson grew up on the Peninsula, attended Berkeley, and then Santa Clara University School of Law. She worked as a securities lawyer at Franklin Templeton before taking a break to raise a family. In 1999, she and her husband, Erik, moved to Woodside, not far from her parents, Fred and Kathi de Grosz.

Andrew George Kridl June 10, 1924 – Jan. 2, 2013 Andrew Kridl, a 46-year resident of Atherton, died on Jan. 2 at age 88. He was the beloved husband of 65 years to his wife Teddy; “Pops” to his children Barbara of Oakland, Jean and husband David Dohn of Davis, and Tom and wife Molly of Los Altos; and “Dziadzio” to his grandchildren Kate and Michael Dohn and Sam and Leanne Kridl. He was also a warm lap to his adored cats Amonasro and Penelope. Andy was born on June 10, 1924 in Warsaw, Poland to Manfred and Halina (Meylert) Kridl. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1941 where he finished high school at Deerfield Academy. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Wesleyan University and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard. In 1945 he served in the U.S. army and became a citizen. On September 6, 1947, Andy married Elizabeth (Teddy) Campbell of Ann Arbor, MI. After receiving his degree, Andy and Teddy moved to California, when he joined Shell Development Co. in 1950. Seven years later, he transferred to New York City where the family lived in Stamford, CT. Later,

he worked for Diamond Alkali Co. in Cleveland. But Andy and Teddy wanted to return to California. In 1967, Andy joined Raychem Corp. in Menlo Park. They settled in Atherton where they remained for the rest of his life. Andy finished his career as a Vice President at SRI International. Andy and Teddy enjoyed traveling and seeing the world. Just before retirement, they visited New Zealand and fell in love with the country and the people. They bought a vacation home and returned there every January for two months. Andy also traveled to Poland most years to visit with relatives and friends. Andy was a Life Master bridge player and continued playing until his death. He also volunteered at the Menlo Park Library for many years. Andy is also survived by his sister Elizabeth Kridl Valkenier of New York and niece Lisa Valkenier of Oakland. Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Andy’s name may be made to the Menlo Park Library or to a charity of the donor’s choice. PA I D

Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened, and what we are doing to correct this situation. Our water system is in violation of a secondary drinking water standard. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Water sample results for the fourth quarter monitoring in 2012 have manganese levels of 84 ppb in well #1 and 140 ppb in well #2 (ppb=parts per billion). This is above the secondary drinking water standard, or secondary maximum contaminant level of 50 ppb. Manganese concentrations above the standard may have an effect on taste and tend to leave black deposits in some plumbing systems. What should I do? s


What happened? What is being done? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor Water has been above the secondary standard for manganese for many years, and this has been described to members in the annual Report on Water Quality Measurements. Recent state regulations have imposed stricter requirements for complying with the secondary standard for manganese. The state has issued the company a citation for noncompliance. The state ordered the company to start quarterly monitoring last February, and this monitoring was completed in September. The state also required that manganese monitoring be continued quarterly and that the results of these tests be reported to the members The company has contracted with an engineering company to study best available technologies for either manganese removal or sequestration (adding a chemical so that the manganese does not precipitate from the water). A preliminary report is due early in 2013. The company will be contacting members to decide whether they wish to remove or sequester the manganese, or request a waiver from the secondary standard. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this public notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this public notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

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 PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 to the Financial code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. BENEFICIARY MAY ELECT TO BID LESS THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE. Trustor(s): DEBORAH GILSON, TRUSTEES OF THE DEBORAH GILSON REVOCABLE TRUST DATED SEPTEMBER 5, 2003 Recorded: 5/3/2005 as Instrument No. 2005-072554 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of SAN MATEO County, California; Date of Sale: 1/23/2013 at 12:30:00 PM Place of Sale: At the Marshall St. entrance to the Hall of Justice and Records, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063 Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $155,623.55 The purported property address is: 3155 BEAR GULCH RD, WOODSIDE, CA 94062 Assessor's Parcel No. 081-170-010-3 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 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 714573-1965 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this Internet Web site , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-12-525448-AB . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled

sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee's Attorney.
