The station broadcasts six regular programs every week. These include “Girl Talk,” a show on which two female hosts discuss beauty tips, dating advice, and social events on campus; a debate show that takes calls from listeners; and a variety show, which combines comedic segments and interviews with local business people and politicians.

Fashioning a fabulous framitz By Marie Wagner Krenz


inety-five years ago Grandfather bought the Woodside property that has brought joy to five generations of our family. When on a winter’s night in 1934 the original frame house burned, my uncles quickly found an architect to rebuild the ruined structure. We were delighted with the modern touches of tiled windowsills, beamed ceilings, and keyless rustic locks. Recently we

had occasion to be anything but thrilled with one of those locks. Not long ago a guest took an afternoon nap on our old sleeping porch and locked the door for privacy. This is no ordinary lock. The exterior part has a kind of thumb pedal that lifts a bar on the inside to open and close the door. A small curved piece of metal flips back and forth to lock or unlock as needed. That afternoon as he left the sleeping porch, our visitor flipped the metal piece, but alas, it did not travel all the way back

but teetered in between. When the door closed it moved forward to relock itself. This would have presented no problem on a keyed door, but ours was different. There was no way to enter the room. We could not get in from the outside without destroying the continuous screening and at least two or three of the hinged paned windows, and perhaps breaking an arm or a leg in the process. Drilling a hole in the door was an unpleasant possibility. Because the house doors were two or

KSHS also airs occasional live broadcasts of high-profile school sporting events, along with special panels every few weeks to allow teachers, students, and outside experts to discuss controversial topics, such as teen drug and alcohol use. Currently, there are 27 students involved with the station, and the online broadcasts have had 1,500 unique IP address hits in the past month. “It’s nice to see that the station’s made a culture around it,” Alex says. “Now there are people who really spend their time on the show. They’ve been able to make (KSHS) a part of who they are.” Every high school class at SHP is represented among KSHS’s on-air hosts, and younger stu-


three inches thick, we tried to consider other remedies. Several weeks passed without a solution. Ours is a family of engineers but most of them live elsewhere with other and more pressing problems than a locked door in the old homestead. I, a former Spanish teacher, kept thinking as the time passed. Finally a few ideas came. It seemed possible to drop a wire over the top of the door and to jiggle the curlicue lock from there. No luck. The wire was too light to fall where I

dents say they are grateful for the opportunities Alex and Tim have made possible. “I would never have considered radio as an option in the future,” says junior host Nick York, “but now I’m thinking it might be a nice thing to do at some point.” Currently, KSHS is broadcasting online only, as the students work on acquiring a new FM frequency and move to a more powerful transmitter of around 100 watts. They’ve also begun releasing recorded content on a SoundCloud account. The station will go on hiatus for the summer, but the students plan to resume regular broadcasts at the start of the next academic year. For more information, search online for KSHS radio. A

wanted it. After more thought, it seemed to me that we could bend a wire or a metal rod to go under the door and reach up to the lock. I asked my engineer daughter-inlaw if this could work. When she agreed, I searched our tool house and found a promising piece of metal. I tried bending it in the vise — unsuccessfully, but I carried it back to the house and kept pushing it under the door and twisting it in an attempt to hit the curlicue. That afternoon an engineer nephew arrived. I immediately See KRENZ, page 31

Bombing survivors return to the marathon By Kate Daly Special to the Almanac


year after being injured in the Boston Marathon bombings, Amanda North of Woodside got to watch her daughter, Lili Pike, cross the finish line at the marathon on April 21, and they celebrated together. On April 15, 2013, Lili was about four hours into her Boston Marathon run and near the finish line when the first bomb went off, knocking her off her feet. She was not hurt, but her mother, who was watching the race and was also knocked to the ground, received third-degree burns, a large gash on her leg and a ruptured eardrum. In addition, Ms. North says, she was “surrounded by some of the worse casualties.” One spectator was killed and another ended up as a double amputee. Erika Brannock, a preschool teacher from the Baltimore area who lost a leg, gives Ms. North credit for helping save her life. Now, a year later, Ms. North says her hearing is restored, and the burns and gash on her leg have healed.

“I was very, very fortunate,” she says, and now she takes “each day as a gift.” On April 15 this year, Ms. North attended the tribute held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center to commemorate the three people who were killed and the more than 260 injured in the bombings. Vice President “Joe Biden gave a very moving talk on resilience, hope and fortitude ... and you didn’t hear one survivor talk without talking about moving forward. You felt uplifted,” Ms. North says. She learned of one family, for example, that has dealt with its loss by starting a foundation to promote stem cell research for patients with injuries. After the ceremony, Ms. North and Ms. Brannock went out in the rain to cross the finish line. Ms. Brannock has a prosthetic leg and used a walker to cross first with her mother. Ms. North was a step behind, linking arms with her son, Logan Pike, and Lili. “That was very emotional; that brought closure,” Ms. North says. Later, Ms. North visited the hospital where she was treated in

Dorchester. Ms. Brannock also returned to the hospital where she had spent 50 days recovering from her wounds. Ms. North describes the visit as “really joyous.” At this year’s marathon on April 21, the sun was shining, thousands more people than usual turned out to watch the race, and police presence was high. Ms. North saw many heli-

copters flying over and barricades lining the course. “Maybe people were anxious in their hearts, but they didn’t show it,” she says. Ms. North watched the race with friends from Woodside, Abby and Henry Wilder, who were there to see their daughter, Mary, run. She finished, and so did Lili’s running partner. Ms. North started to get concerned when there was no sign of Lili, who had run a lot in high school, but hadn’t spent a lot of time continuing her training at Harvard. Lili injured her knee before the race, yet was determined to participate no matter what. Turns out she spent the last 10 miles “hobbling and walking,” but when she crossed the finish line after about five hours, Ms. North says, “My heart swelled

Avenidas CEO steps down After 15 years, Menlo Park resident Lisa Hendrickson is stepping aside from her role as president and CEO of the Avenidas senior services organization in Palo Alto. The Avenidas board of directors is conducting a national search for her replacement, the organization announced May 14. Ms. Hendrickson said she will work in a different capacity: preparing for a new Avenidas facility to meet the needs of the Baby Boomer population. Prior to her current position, Ms. Hendrickson worked KRENZ continued from page 29

enlisted the services he readily provided. He seemed to like my idea and took my metal piece back to the garage and modified it to bend closer to the interior lock. The two of us became fascinated with the project and spent an hour or two twisting, turning, pushing, and bending the rod. Then, wonder of wonders, the interior curlicue suddenly flipped back and the door opened. We had done it. A little later, my engineer son dropped by and congratulated us on the success of our endeavors.

She is a Lisa Hendrickson g r a du at e of Smith College with a degree in economics and is a board member of AvidBank in Palo Alto. She resides in Menlo Park with her husband. He said that we had constructed a “framitz.” I learned that a framitz is engineering slang for a do-hickey or do-dad, a nonsensical word for a mechanical component within a system.

with pride.” Now that Ms. North is back in town, she is working on Artisans Connect, an e-commerce business she runs out of her home. Launched in April, the website sells home decorating accessories made by artisans in developing countries around the world. Ms. North says the bombing “changed my life,” leading her to quit her high-tech marketing job and start up a social venture that’s more in keeping with the political, economic, and international focus she had back in college during the 1970s. She likes the idea that she can “support artisans and keep them in their traditional livelihood,” so they have an opportunity to do something besides working in call centers or as tour operators. A

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 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 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 714-730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site, using the file number assigned to this case 12-32428-JP-CA. 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.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: JOYCE EDELYN REESE Case No.: 124496 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of JOYCE EDELYN REESE. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: ELENA L. REESE in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN MATEO. The Petition for Probate requests that: ELENA L. REESE be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on June 16, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 28, of the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, located at 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ George S.
