And, lo, they ate it with gusto and have been asking for more every single week

The hands of Portola Valley baker Phil Reilly shape a loaf of sprouted wheat bread. His hands get started making and shaping bread at around 6:30 a.m. on a typical Wednesday and stay busy for the rest of the day, and most of the following day, too. He usually sells all of the 80 loaves he prepares for the Thursday afternoon farmers’ market at the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road.

s is common among bread bakers, Portola Valley resident and part-time baker Phil Reilly starts his day early. Not 3 a.m. early, but by 6:30 a.m. on a Wednesday, 32 loaves will be underway: eight of pain au levain, a mild sourdough; eight of corn “porridge” bread, a blend of Italian corn grits, toasted sunflower seeds and rosemary; and 16 of sprouted wheat.

The next morning’s work typically produces 32 loaves of buckwheat-fig — a bestseller — and 16 of quinoa-kamut, an ancient grain from South America combined with an ancient wheat from South Asia. Since the fall of 2013, on Thursday afternoons or evenings, depending on the season, Mr. Reilly, 55, can be found behind a stand at the Portola Valley farmers’ market selling his artisanal loaves — and in short order. “The buckwheat with figs and walnuts is definitely my bestseller and,

even though I do a double batch, (it) usually sells out first in an hour or so,” Mr. Reilly says. Portola Valley resident Danna Breen, a big fan of Mr. Reilly’s efforts, helped him for his first few weeks at the farmers’ market. “Every single loaf has a different application,” she says in an email. “One for soup, one for cheeses, toasting, chocolate. My friends and I are all breaking this bread together and it makes for the most fun rating experience as we taste and sample them all.” People have written to her ask-

ing if she could have loaves set aside, Ms. Breen told the Almanac. “It has occurred to me that I could open up a black market,” she writes. “’For $30 I will secure a loaf for you!’ The bottom line is you have to get there to get your bread.” Baking is Mr. Reilly’s third career. The other three days of the week, he is an intellectualproperty attorney in the bio-tech sector, and he came to that from a career in chemistry. He received See EAT BREAD, page 27

his undergraduate degree in England, where he grew up, and has a doctorate in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley. He moved to the Bay Area in 1995 with his wife, Judith Hasko, an attorney and a recently appointed member of the Portola Valley Planning Commission. Cooking and baking caught his attention as a teen, when he tried his hand at Indian food. The fascination with baking began by watching dumplings fluffing up in a pot on the stove. “That just amazed me,” he says. Making bread “is a lovely combination of art and science,” he adds. “You take flour and water and natural leavening and, by being careful of how you treat it, it becomes something magical.” He refined his skills at the San Francisco Baking Institute in South San Francisco. “I want to give people bread they can’t get anywhere else,” he says. “To get this bread, you have to do it by hand.”

Good for Business. Good for You. Good for the Community.

fter working as a tax accountant for 25 years, a 61- year-old Portola Valley resident has reinvented herself as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer with a focus on perimenopausal, menopausal, and post-menopausal women. Her youngest client is 50, the oldest is 75. “When you take the aging woman, we have a lot in common; we have a lot of issues with muscle loss and bone-density loss,” she says. When she retired from the business world, she says, “I felt I wanted to actively age and stay active,” so she went back to school some five years ago and took courses at Foothill and Canada colleges and the American College of Sports Medicine to learn more about the process. She earned several certificates and now, in addition to working with clients one-on-one as a personal trainer, she teaches multiple classes in Portola Valley and Palo Alto. The fee varies depending on the location. At Portola Valley Town Center, she offers a weekly functional fitness class on Monday eve-

LuAnne Kalman, who teaches Baby Boomer exercise classes in Portola Valley, is calling it her “encore career.”

nings that is filled with “a little bit of everything”: pilates, yoga, zumba, stretching, balls, bands, and weights. The class size fluctuates, but usually amounts to six women (although men are not excluded). When she designs her workouts, “it’s about strength, longevity and endurance, releasing pressure on the joints, working them lightly in different directions, and not putting stress on them.” “I just keep people moving. ... I don’t subscribe to the no pain, no gain philosophy,” she says. After a few classes, she notices her students improving their flexibility and posture, and making gains in building strength and endurance. She teaches another class on Tuesday and Thursday mornings centered around using a stability exercise ball to strengthen the core and improve balance. Alice Chiang of Portola Valley took Ms. Kalman’s class over the summer and found the exercise balls particularly fun and different from the yoga she’s used to doing on her own. Joan Blackmon of Portola Valley has worked out with Ms. Kalman for eight years, and says at one point they both developed frozen shoulders. She says Ms. Kalman learned from that experience, and now “she is so aware of keeping the person injuryfree; she has really been good at critiquing a person and making sure they do it correctly.” Ms. Blackmon likes to go to the local classes so she can work out among friends. Three of her neighbors attend on a regular basis and they enjoy the social aspect of getting together with a

purpose. Ms. Kalman recognizes the importance of the buddy system to encourage people to exercise. “The most difficult part is walking in the door,” she says. “Maybe it feels like too much, or there is a fear of having not worked out. ... But it’s about being with other women, and you can make it as intense as you want it to be and work out at your own level.” Ms. Blackmon describes Ms. Kalman as “very friendly and inclusive,” but could easily use the words enthusiastic and energetic when talking about the compact grandmother of three. Ms. Kalman plays Baby Boomer music in her classes “to ease into the mood and bring back memories,” she explains, saying sometimes the routines go better with Motown, other times they call for the Eagles, Billy Joel or Credence. “If you feel a pain, stop doing it. If you feel sore, that’s OK. Just go as far as you are able,” she tells her students, prompting them when to exhale and inhale, and make modifications if they are having trouble doing the moves. For Ms. Kalman it’s all about keeping moving. “The less independent you are the more dependent you will be as you age, and you will stop doing things for yourself,” she says. In keeping with her active lifestyle, she plans to add a blog to her website: After seeing her in action, this writer predicts she will be rocking on a stability ball with her blond ponytail bouncing up and down when she finally sits down to start her blog about fitness and nutrition.

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 recorderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 California Civil Code.
