City seeks Garlic giant responds to documentary applicants to fill seat on council NETFLIX SHOW SUGGESTS COMPLICITY WITH CHEAP CHINESE IMPORTS

PAUL KLOECKER SEAT WILL BE FILLED WITH APPOINTEE

By Brad Kava Editor

Gilroy’s Christopher Ranch, America’s biggest garlic producer,

disputes accusations that it conspired to fix garlic prices and sells garlic peeled by Chinese prisoners, allegations raised by competitors in a new Netflix documentary series investigating food scandals called “Rotten.” The episode, called “Garlic Breath,” shows what it alleges is undercover video taken in Chinese prisons of workers peeling garlic—using their teeth

in some cases, according to an undercover witness, to remove roots because the peeling had ruined the prisoners’ fingernails. The hidden camera video shows boxes marked with the Golden Lion brand, sold by Christopher. Ken Christopher, the thirdgeneration manager of the family-owned private company, this week denied the the documentary’s allegations. He said that

Christopher, Gilroy’s biggest employer, is planning to file suit against Netflix asking it to stop showing the documentary and to issue a correction. He said the company is overwhelmed by negative comments on social media as a result of the show. Christopher said his company has never sold garlic peeled ➝ Christopher, 2

➝ City Council, 18

Brad Kava

The Gilroy City Council voted unanimously to appoint a new council person to replace Paul Kloecker, who died last month. People who want the seat have until Jan. 18 to submit applications. The Gilroy City Charter gave the council three options. Either, make an appointment that evening, accept applications until the Jan. 18 deadline, then interview and appoint a candidate by Feb. 5, or, call for a new general election. An election would have cost the city up to $350,000, prompting the council to take the more frugal option. The steep price tag of the special election is due primarily because the cost for the standalone election is not consolidated with other jurisdictions, meaning the city would need to pay the entirety of the bill. For the general election in 2016, the cost for the city council race including all candidates cost $43,677. One known contender for the spot is Tom Fischer, a longtime commissioner on the Planning Commission, who just barely missed winning the seat Kloecker won in 2016. Kloecker garnered 5,471 votes, 95 more than Fischer, who got 5,376 votes. Three speakers took their opportunity to speak

Gilroyan to tattoo on Ink THE 24-YEAR-OLD ARTIST IS LOOKING TO WIN $100K ON NATIONAL TV By Brad Kava Editor

A Gilroy tattoo artist will be featured in a 16-week competitive tattooing TV show called “Ink Master,” which airs at 10pm Tuesdays on the Spike network. If he wins, he would receive $100,000.

Daniel Silva, 24, who works at Rock Zone, at 1323 First St., is the youngest competitor on the show in its 10th season. Last year he beat the Season 8 winner in a San Francisco televised face off in front of a live audience after which he got 500 requests for tattoos. His life is a real come-frombehind story. At 20, the Gilroy High School graduate served a year in jail for dealing cocaine and marijuana. He got out and

lived on friends’ couches and garages for a year, while he saved up money for a $300 tattoo machine and worked in retail. He got a station at Rock Zone when it was the only place that would give him a spot because he was so inexperienced and hadn’t served an apprenticeship. His first month he had three customers. He had four the next. But after spreading his art on social media his clientele grew geometrically. He’s now booked a

year in advance. The popular TV show found him as a result of his strong presence on social media. The fact that he’s so young and facing much more experienced competitors made him a real darling on the show. “The trade is super hard to get into,” said Silva. “You can’t learn it in school. It’s one of those trades where you have to know someone to learn it. For me it ➝ Tattoo, 14

Christopher says Netflix doc is rotten Christopher, 1

by prisoners and 90 percent of the garlic it sells is from California. He said the company has no connection to the Golden Lion brand and that the video claiming to be filmed in prisons is a fake. “The documentary is a hit piece on us,” said Christopher, whose family has grown, packed and marketed garlic in Gilroy since 1953. “We’re being dragged through the mud. I want to keep emphasizing, who we are is about California garlic. No Christopher Ranch product uses Chinese garlic. Having our integrity means so much to us.” In the documentary, a U.S.based garlic importer tells the filmmakers he sneaked a camera into a Chinese prison and observed prisoners peeling garlic, allowing companies to sell it at much lower prices than cloves peeled in the U.S. The documentary alleges that Christopher Ranch sells that garlic. It also claims that Christopher has been working with a Harmoni Group, Inc., which is the only importer of overseas garlic that doesn’t have to pay tariffs on imported cloves. Christopher said the company works with Harmoni because it doesn’t dump garlic in the U.S. market, meaning it doesn’t sell garlic for less than it costs to produce it, undercutting U.S. growers. “Christopher Ranch, the nation’s largest family-owned garlic company, is proud of our commitment to our customers and community to be both ethical and transparent regarding our business operations,” Christopher wrote in a Jan. 8 Facebook post. “We find it unfortunate that the new Netflix docuseries ‘Rotten’ has chosen to produce a show that highlights our brand in such a negative light.”

CHRISTOPHER RANCH Workers at Christopher Ranch in Gilroy work on garlic cloves in this file photo. The company grows 90 percent of the 90 million pounds of garlic that it sells annually in the U.S. in California, sourcing the rest from Spain, Argentina, Mexico, and China,” he wrote. “We source a limited amount of Chinese garlic from a US-based firm, Harmoni, and have found them to be a dependable supplier. We were aware of some allegations surrounding their labor practices last year, but U.S. Customs and Border Protection investigated and cleared them of any wrongdoing.” According to the documentary, small garlic producers can’t survive if this large Chinese importer, Harmoni, is allowed to undercut prices. “Currently, the wholesale price of garlic in China is $1 a kilo, and this has enabled Harmoni Spice, the only garlic importer that pays no duty, to undercut U.S. producers for the past 10 years,” said Stanley Crawford, a New Mexican

farmer who asked the Department of Commerce to review Harmoni’s exemption from tariffs, in an article published by the Albuquerque Journal. “Anti-dumping duties, which can run as high as $4.71 a kilo, would serve to level the playing field for U.S. producers, bringing the price of imported garlic in line with U.S. wholesale prices.” The commerce department reviews companies suggested by an organization called the Fresh Garlic Producers Association, of which Christopher Ranch is one of four members. That organization annually withdraws its request for the regulatory agency to review Harmoni, according to the film, allowing Harmoni to exploit a loophole and avoid tariffs. In June, the U.S. Department of Commerce threw out Crawford’s request to investigate Harmoni, saying that Crawford had taken money from a competing Chinese garlic company and destroyed his credibility as

a source. The film documents a battle between Crawford and his attorney and another boutique New Mexican garlic producer who first signed on with Crawford and then took money from Harmoni. Those battles prevented the Commerce Department from taking action. U.S. Customs investigated the allegations of prisoners being used for the imported Harmoni garlic and found it to be untrue, Christopher said. The “Rotten” series is produced by Zero Point Zero, the company behind Anthony Bourdain’s television shows. “Our food supply system is broken, corrupt, dirty, inhumane, and riddled with fraud. If you are not aware of this, you need to be,” wrote Paste Magazine in a review of the series, calling it “mandatory” viewing for people who buy food. Christopher said the company is considering a lawsuit and is also thinking about no longer

importing any garlic from China. The reason it does so now, he said, is because some customers who can’t afford California garlic prefer the cheaper Chinese product. Those imports are never sold under the Christopher name, he said, and when the company does use garlic from other countries to bridge the gap between harvests, it clearly labels its origin. Christopher Ranch, with more than 600 full time workers and another 400 seasonal ones, is Gilroy’s biggest employer. The company pays its agricultural workers above minimum wage, and company patriarch Don Christopher is noted for his philanthropy, which includes donating land and an endowment to fund the establishment of Christopher High School. Ken Christopher said the company would never knowingly use prison labor for its products. “Absolutely not,” he said. “Not in a million years.”

Gilroy, in an effort driven by the Gilroy Welcome Center and the Chamber of Commerce, is getting in on the action for California Restaurant Month and getting a boost from the hip Instagram stars the Hungry Hipsters. Breann Chiero and Christian Medice, the hip hipsters who founded the Hungry Hipsters, an Instagram account with more than 130,000 followers, were invited to Gilroy by Visit California to help spread the word about restaurant week. They started their Gilroy restaurant tour at the Stomping Ground Tuesday night, enjoyed dinner at the Milias and finished up at Café 152 Bread Company Wednesday afternoon. For them, Gilroy’s small-town charm is a welcome change of pace from their home in Los Angeles. “Gilroy is so cute and it has a lot to do for a small town,” Chiero said. “We’re both from small

towns, so we’re kind of used to it. It’s crazy how many different wineries there are here.” The Hungry Hipsters are considered influencers and with their large following on Instagram, coupled with the fashion and design skills of Chiero, they can drive attention to the restaurants they visit. Besides their restaurant tour, they made sure to visit the Outlets to help prepare for an upcoming trip to Yosemite. "We should be used to the climate by now," Chiero, who along with Medice moved to Los Angeles three months ago. "I thought I could just pack a bunch of T-shirts." Starting on Jan. 14 and running through Jan. 28, 15 local restaurants will showcase their best garlic dishes to show off the culinary chops of the Garlic Capital of the World. To help give Restaurant Week a shot in the arm, the Welcome Center is offering a $500 raffle prize worth of gift cards for participants who visit five different restaurants from Jan. 14 through 28. “People all over the country know about the Gilroy Garlic Festival in July–but many don’t realize they can get delicious garlic dishes here all year long," Gilroy Welcome Center Executive Director Jane Howard said.

Church Street pizza shop owner stabbed at work SAL OLIVERI, 62, NEEDED 30 STITCHES IN A RANDOM ATTACK By Brad Kava Editor

The longtime owner of Pinocchio’s pizza on Church Street was stabbed Saturday at

5:37pm, allegedly by a transient from Virginia who was arrested shortly afterwards– and a second man was arrested Wednesday afternoon for threatening employees. Police arrested Mark Allmond, of Virginia, Saturday on suspicion of attempted murder for allegedly stabbing Sal Oliveri, 62 in the arm, a

wound that required 30 stitches. Allmond was arrested minutes after the attack. Allmond reportedly came in and called Oliveri a terrorist and said he should leave the country, when Oliveri asked him to leave the business. He came back in brandishing a knife and Oliveri and his son-in-law moved him back to a table to protect other

GUEST VIEW JOHN L. VARELA Santa Clara Valley Water District

2017: A year in review

2

017 will be a memorable year for Santa Clara County, especially for water resources management. It was the year that broke our state’s longest dry streak with recordsetting precipitation. A year of transition between extremes – from drought to floods. A year for big decisions on the future of our water supply. And it was a year to redouble our commitment to preparing for wet and dry years to ensure safe, clean water for a healthy life, environment and economy for the Silicon Valley. As Board Chair of the Santa Clara Valley Water District, I am proud to reflect on some of the year’s highlights. A historic flood along Coyote Creek was a vivid reminder that flood risks persist in our county, and our hearts go out to those affected. Despite our investments of close to $1 billion in flood protection projects over several decades protecting nearly 100,000 parcels, our work is far from completed. The Coyote Creek flood has ignited a new urgency in our fight to reduce flood risks and help keep communities safe. This year, we completed the Lower Silver Creek Flood Protection Project in east San José. The project extends approximately 4.4 miles from its connection at Coyote Creek to Cunningham Avenue. When the Lake Cunningham detention basin is completed it will protect approximately 3,800 homes and businesses. Flood protection projects are large, complex undertakings, requiring intense coordination with local, state, federal and regulatory agencies. After the Coyote Creek flood in February, my colleagues and I led advocacy efforts in Washington D.C. to seek federal funding and support changes to the regulatory permitting process which has delayed many important flood protection projects. At home, we took immediate action to build short-term flood barriers at the Rock Springs neighborhood, remove invasive vegetation along Coyote Creek, remove downed trees and potential creek blockages, and partnered with the City of San José to approve a Joint Emergency Action Plan which outlines a detailed

strategy for preparing and responding to potential flood threats in San José waterways. The board also approved new operating parameters at Anderson and Coyote reservoirs to create more storage space, further reducing the chance of flooding. In one of the most critical decisions of the year, the water district board voted to conditionally participate in the California WaterFix project to improve the infrastructure that carries water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Our board developed a list of seven guiding principles to work with state and water agency partners to examine a less costly, scaleddown and staged project that would serve Silicon Valley’s needs, as well as our partner agencies’. To further improve reliability of our imported water supply sources, we applied for $484.5 million in state funding for the potential expansion of the Pacheco Reservoir. This project offers emergency and drought-year supply, fish habitat enhancement, flood protection and other benefits. Another way we are preparing for the future is through expanding use of recycled water. This year we celebrated the completion of 2.5 mile recycled water pipeline along Wolfe Road in Sunnyvale. The project was also a shining example of how Silicon Valley businesses and local governments can successfully invest in our region’s water infrastructure, paving the way for future collaborations. In a landmark decision, the water district board voted to pursue a public-private partnership (P3) for our purified water program in which one entity would finance, build and operate a new facility to produce highly purified water. In December 2017, the board voted to expand the list of qualified P3 entities by issuing a new Request for Qualifications and ultimately selecting a P3 entity through a Request for Proposals by the end of 2018, which will set us up for a busy year working to ensure we meet our water supply needs. No doubt about it, 2017 was a forwardmoving year. Follow more of what we accomplished throughout the year in our 2017 annual report available on www.valleywater.org.

Later this month, schools, homeschool groups, organizations, and individuals in California and across America will work together to raise awareness about the importance of opportunity in K-12 education. National School Choice Week begins on January 21 and celebrates all types of schools and education environments for children. Nationwide, 32,240 different events and activities – such as open houses, school fairs, and information sessions – are being planned, with an estimated attendance of 6.7 million people. In fact, 2302 of those events and activities will be held in California, and three are in Gilroy. National School Choice Week has been celebrated every year since 2011. And even with increased awareness, many families still have questions about school choice and how it can benefit them and their communities. The first thing to know is that school choice isn’t partisan or political. It isn't about a specific set of policy goals either. Rather, it’s about parents making personal decisions for their children. School choice means empowering individual parents with the opportunity to search for, and find, the best education environments for their individual children – regardless of where they live or how much money they make. Finding the right school is important, because every child has unique talents, challenges, and needs. School choice isn’t about finding fault with any of the schooling options available. Instead, it recognizes that while one student might thrive at a neighborhood school, another student might do better somewhere else. Research shows that when parents actively choose schools and education environments for their children, students are more likely to succeed in school. They are also more likely to graduate from high school, get good jobs, and participate in their communities. School choice isn’t just theoretical. Right now, more parents in California and across America are actively choosing the education environments for their children than at any other time in history. National School Choice Week provides parents with an opportunity to evaluate the education options available for their children. If parents are interested in switching their child to a different school, or considering homeschooling, it helps to start looking into these options in the winter. Families in California can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling. Searching for a new school, or considering an alternative education environment, doesn’t have to be daunting. Parents can start by talking to their children and other parents, researching schools online, and visiting schools in person. A good place to start is the National School Choice Week website: www.schoolchoiceweek.com, where we provide more information about specific school choice options in the Golden State as well as listings of the tens of thousands of local and regional events happening this year. National School Choice Week is a time when the country comes together around the idea that every child can succeed when they find the right school fit. This January, parents have more options and opportunities than ever before to find that right fit. For individual communities and for our country, that is a good thing. A nationally recognized advocate for children and families, Andrew R. Campanella serves as president of National School Choice Week, the world's largest-annual celebration of opportunity in education. He lives in Northwest Florida.

WHAT’S NEW

at El Camino Hospital Los Gatos? For years, El Camino Hospital Los Gatos promoted and protected the health of the South Bay. We believe in treating our patients as people first, to be valued, respected, and not defined by their medical issues. At the same time, we work hard to meet our community’s evolving healthcare needs. With that in mind, we’ve added to and enhanced our services to bring you even more world-class care, close to home.

815 Pollard Road, Los Gatos, CA 95032

ANNOUNCING MORE SPECIALISTS, EXPANDED PROGRAMS, UPGRADED FACILITIES, AND NEW SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGIES. • INTERVENTIONAL PULMONOLOGY We are expanding this innovative service to our Los Gatos campus to increase access and improve convenience for patients. We offer diagnosis and treatment (including minimally invasive endoscopic procedures) for asthma, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, and tuberculosis.

• EXPANDED ENDOSCOPY AND COLONOSCOPY CAPABILITIES El Camino Hospital Los Gatos uses advanced technologies and equipment to diagnose and treat digestive health conditions. We now offer endoscopy retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for various biliary (gallbladderrelated) diseases. We’ve added interventional endoscopy, and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) for cancer staging and diagnosis. In addition, we now use double balloon enteroscopy to evaluate small bowel diseases. To capture lesions that can be missed by other equipment, we perform colonoscopies using the innovative Third Eye® Panoramic™ Retroscope.

• LEADING-EDGE TREATMENT FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS With ablation, the traditional treatment for endometriosis, the underlying tissue remains, and unfortunately, endometriosis can often return. We are now one of just a few hospitals in the country to also offer laser excision, an ultra-precise technique that excises the maximum amount of abnormal tissue for long-lasting results.

• BLUE LIGHT CYSTOSCOPY WITH CYSVIEW® FOR BLADDER CANCER SURGERY Cystoscopy is the procedure used to diagnose and remove bladder cancer tumors. Unfortunately, tiny tumors in the bladder wall are hard to locate. Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview® makes these tumors easier to see during surgery. The bladder is treated with an agent that causes tumors to show up as bright pink under blue light, making them much easier for the surgeon to locate and remove.

• ENHANCED SURGICAL FACILITIES AND DEDICATED SPINE OPERATING ROOM We have updated and expanded our surgical suites to better accommodate the large team and sophisticated equipment needed to perform complex surgeries.

• LATEST ROBOTIC SURGERY CAPABILITIES Our minimally invasive surgical capabilities continue to grow with the addition of a da Vinci Xi® surgical robot in Los Gatos. El Camino Hospital is a regional leader in robotic-assisted procedures, and this enables us to accommodate the many patients who seek our expertise.

• OFFICIAL BABY-FRIENDLY® DESIGNATION We have just been named a Baby-Friendly® Hospital — the only South Bay facility to earn this designation. Sponsored by the United Nations International Children’s Fund and the World Health Organization, this earned accreditation recognizes that we are exceptional at teaching breastfeeding skills and helping new mothers adjust to nursing.

THESE SERVICES COMPLEMENT THE OUTSTANDING CARE YOU RELY ON. Our recent additions and changes are just part of the great care we’re known for here in the South Bay. Patients come from all over to be seen by the exceptional physicians in our Urology Program. We are one of very few hospitals in the region to offer Artemis™ 3D Imaging and Navigation for prostate biopsies. We also have an innovative Fast Track Stone Program through our Emergency Department that allows patients with kidney stone symptoms to see a doctor within 15 minutes. Our Orthopedic Institute offers leading-edge hip, knee, and spine surgery. All joint and spine surgery patients recover in style in our Orthopedic Pavilion, a remarkable, hotel-like post-surgery unit. Highlights of our Women’s Health Program include leading-edge robotic and conventional gynecological surgeries, and a Pelvic Health Program. Our Regional Men’s Health Program offers a full range of treatments for prostate issues, erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, and urological conditions. Our Sleep Disorders Program is staffed by a team of specialists, including a fellowship-trained sleep medicine specialist, sleep apnea surgeons, and a dentist who’s certified in dental sleep medicine. Sleep studies are performed in our sleep lab, which is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). And, of course, you can always count on our outstanding Emergency Services, 24/7.

The original project, which included 17 welcoming signs was deemed to be such a success that more work was commissioned. Because of the project's success, a new agreement with Arrow Signs was entered into on July 8, 2015, for an amount not to exceed $334,988.

what the show paid him to appear. Client Raul Cerna, an Infiniti car technician, drove from Modesto after waiting for six months for an appointment to have body art on his arm. He

had seen Silva’s work on social media and paid $800 for the work. “I love it,” he said. “I love the detail in it, his line work is amazing. People love how clean it came out, the detail. They just love it.”

INTRICATE AND LIFELONG For a TV episode of “Ink Master, Angels,”Daniel Silva took on the standing champion in a contest for best art, and to his surprise beat her. It was that kind of intricate detail that attracted Raul Cerna, whose emblazoned arm is shown here.

Every tattoo I did, I tried to better myself.” He did his first tattoo at 16, when a friend who owed him money and had a tattoo machine had him ink a skull on the palm of his hand. The detail of his art is highly praised by fellow artists on the show and by clients, called “canvasses” on the air. “Once you prove you are good, people come after you,” he said. He bills himself as a “fine artist,” not someone who puts the cliched butterfly on backs. “I’ve never really done weird, crazy requests,” he said. “I draw something I want to do and post it on social media and people come in. I’ve never really done random butt tattoos or face tattoos or dumb stuff that people would be walking down the strip in Las Vegas and say, ‘this is a dumb idea’”. He denies twice as many requests for body art as he takes. “I do body art, not tattoos,” he said. He spent a month in a house in New Jersey for the show, which filmed 16 episodes. It looks a lot more glamorous on the air than in real life, he said. “It looks luxurious on the show,” he said. “It was filmed upstairs and we slept downstairs, like an army barracks. We lived together, ate together and shared one bathroom.” He had to pay rent back home for his space and home, so, broke even with

Celebration of life for Gilroy coach Jan.13 TOM BURT COACHED IN GILROY, CUPERTINO AND LOS ALTOS By Pat Burt

Contributed

Tom Burt, educator and legendary football coach of Los Altos and Gilroy High Schools passed away on Oct. 16 from stroke complications at the age of 94. Tom inspired generations of students and athletes to value teamwork and perseverance, pursue their passions and fulfill their potentials. Tom was born in Los Angeles and raised on a small oil field in the middle of West Hollywood where the Beverly Center stands today. His mother, Frances, was descended from early Montana settlers and his father, Chester, arrived in California from Oklahoma after serving in Europe as a doughboy in the World War I. Tom was the second of four children and the first in his family to attend college. He grew up riding his bike to deliver newspapers in Beverly Hills and to the beach in Santa Monica, enjoying the outdoors and playing every sport available. He attended Fairfax High where he pursued his passion for athletics and was classmates with Hollywood childhood stars including Judy Garland

and Mickey Rooney. After high school he fought forest fires while waiting to pursue his dreams of becoming a naval aviator and playing college football. Tom graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara where he played football, basketball and baseball and where, during a golf class, he met, Katy Molloy, his wife of over 50 years until her death in 1999. They were married at the Santa Barbara Mission in 1947 and shared lifelong careers as admired teachers, instilling passion for learning in the thousands of students whose lives they affected. He became head football coach at Gilroy High in the early 1950s, transforming their program while inspiring many of his players to become successful coaches and lifelong friends. In 1956 he was the first person hired by Dude Angius, a Gilroy native, GHS Class of ’46 at the new Los Altos High School where Coach Burt served as teacher, football coach and athletic director for 25 years. Under his leadership Los Altos High was recognized as the most successful football and overall athletic program in northern California. From 1961– 1970 his football teams were champions six times, including the first Santa

All-Star Game. Upon his retirement the Los Altos High football field was named Tom Burt Field. After retiring from teaching, Tom pursued his passions for sports, outdoors and his family. He and his former assistant, Bob Baird, took up their spikes again in the 1980s to help coach DeAnza College to a conference championship under Bob Mazuka, one of his former players from Gilroy.

Then, in 1990, he joined his former colleague, Pete Riehlman, in a great adventure of coaching the Bologna, Italy “Warriors” American football team. Tom married Dee Hardcastle in 2005. They lived in Auburn and Walnut Creek until her death last year. Tom and Katy are survived by their five children, Michael, Patrick, Maureen, Sheila and Kevin, and seven grandchildren,

Katrina, Heather, Shane, Carolyn, Kelly, Riley and Grace. His greatest pleasures in life were his family, friends, sports, the outdoors, and the opportunity to mentor so many amazing young people throughout his years of coaching and teaching.

Fischer, Blankley seek council seat City Council, 1

I hope they evaluate each candidate on their own merit.” The city council decided to forgo an appointment Monday night in favor of taking applicants from the public. The process will require a quick turnaround for the council to choose its new member and also get whoever it is quickly up to speed. Fischer, a retired plumber and 40-year Gilroy resident was also chosen Monday night to retain his current position on the city's Planning Commission. As the current chairperson of the commission, Fischer also serves on the General Plan Advisory Commission, the Development Standards Task Force, the Citizens Advisory Committee for High-Speed Rail among other positions on various city advisory positions. Should Fischer be chosen to fill Kloecker's seat, he will be required to resign his position on the Planning Commission.

He will talk with people and have a clear understanding of the issues.” Marie Blankley, a Certified Personal Accountant and lifelong Gilroyan has already filed paperwork to run for the city council in the next general election but also plans to apply for fill Kloecker's vacated seat now. “I am very sorry that the council is in this position with Mr. Kloecker's passing, but I hope they have well-qualified candidates to choose from,” Blankley said. “I appreciate that the council has opened it up and

Round 1 Draw Robert Eliason

EL CLASICO, GILROY STYLE Gilroy High’s Carlos Guerrero battles for possession against Christopher’s Chris Gonzalez in the teams’ 1-1 draw on Jan. 4. The Mustangs and Cougars play for the Garlic Cup Trophy, and this year’s trophy will go to the team that wins on aggregate scoring.

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Gumins are excelling for Gilroy emanuel lee Sports Editor

Whenever Gilroy High plays Christopher High— in any sport—it always carries a little more meaning. The boys soccer teams from the respective schools have extra incentive to win in the form of the Garlic Cup trophy. The Cougars are in possession of the trophy, but Gilroy has a slight leg up in its attempt to take the trophy back this season. The teams played to a 1-1 draw on Jan. 4, the first of two Monterey Bay League Pacific Division matchups. The two schools have dubbed the game El Clasico, the name given to any time Real Madrid and Barcelona FC play each other. Gilroy coach Armando Padilla and Christopher coach Ricardo Espinosa agreed to decide this year’s trophy on aggregate scoring, something the Champions League employ. That means away goals count more than home team scores, resulting in Gilroy receiving a bonus

point for scoring on Christopher’s home field. “They have a slight advantage,” Espinosa said. “We have to go to their house and need to win 1-0 or if they score, at least win by 2-1 or more.” Both coaches agreed that last week’s matchup was competitive, intense and a clean match. The squads took turns possessing the ball, and both goals were scored in the final 10 minutes of the match. The Mustangs, who entered the week at 4-2-4 overall and 1-0-1 in league, went up 1-0 as Juan Orozco crashed the goal and put one in after an absolute cannon for a shot from teammate Jacob Dolan led to a rebound in front. Orozco punched in the deflection, taking advantage of a failed clearing attempt from Christopher. The Cougars, however, displayed plenty of grit themselves in getting the equalizer with three minutes remaining. Christopher, which entered the week at 2-4-2 overall and 0-1-1 in league, scored when Jose Flores launched a shot that landed just under the top crossbar. Gilroy

IN TRAFFIC Christopher and Gilroy players battle for the ball in a 1-1 draw on Jan. 4. The Cougars and Mustangs meet again on Jan. 30 to decide the Garlic Cup Trophy. goalkeeper Gerardo Pina went up and deflected it, but the ball went into the goal. Flores, a sophomore midfielder, actually came out of the game in the 72nd minute because of leg cramps. However, Flores returned and launched the shot from 40 yards away that led to the tying goal. “Jose is a battler,” Espinosa said. “One thing we talk about with the guys is having pride and playing from the first

minute to the 80th. Jose came up big, and he was the game MVP, our captain and a leader. Our kids didn’t give up, and that was great to see.” The rematch on Jan. 30 should be a doozy, considering by then both teams will know whether they have a legitimate shot of winning the championship and with it the division’s only automatic berth into the Central Coast Section playoffs.

“Our expectation coming into the season was to win league,” Padilla said. “The players worked hard in the preseason, and if they can put it all together and execute our system, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be on top of the standings at the end of the season.” Padilla said he loved the talent and work ethic of this year’s team, and it has depth at almost every position.

PREP REPORT

Rodriguez up for national honor emanuel lee Sports Editor

When Jubenal Rodriguez received a call in mid-November that he was being nominated by the San Francisco 49ers as their NFL High School Coach of the Year, he thought one of his friends was playing a joke on him. “I thought it was one of my buddies messing around with me,” said Rodriguez, who helped lead Gilroy High to a 13-0 record and Central Coast Section Division V

championship this past season. “Once I realized it was serious, it was pretty unreal. It’s an awesome feeling, I’m just very blessed to be nominated. But all the kudos goes to my football staff and the program. I wish it was a coaching staff award.” Gilroy High’s coaching staff in 2017 included Rick Dukes, Albert King, Joel Rueda, Tim Lemos, and Shea Lemos. Rodriguez is one of 32 coaches throughout the nation who are eligible

to win the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award. Two finalists will each receive $15,000 from the NFL Foundation, $10,000 of which will go to their high school’s football program. The winner will be announced during the Pro Bowl, which airs Jan. 28 at noon local time on ESPN and simulcast on ABC. Go to gilroydispatch.com to see the full version of this story.

Brothers Drew and Mason Gumin agree on many things, but there’s one thing they disagree on— who wins when they play NBA 2K. “We’ve played hundreds of times, and I think Drew has beaten me two times the entire time,” Mason said. “That’s not true—I kill him in the games,” Drew said. The Gilroy High basketball players—Drew is a junior forward and Mason a freshman point guard— have played a key role in Gilroy’s season thus far. The Mustangs entered Wednesday’s game against Alvarez at 4-10 overall and 0-2 in the Monterey Bay League’s Pacific Division. The four wins equal last year’s total, and the Gumin brothers are hoping for at least a couple of more victories in league play. Mason, a 5-foot-10, 150-pound junior, leads the team in scoring. Drew, a 5-6, 120-pound freshman, scored 23 points in his first-ever high school game in the season-opener against Live Oak on Dec. 1. The Mustangs have also received solid play from Jaeru Are, Carlos Andrade, James Vegas, Trey Bursey, Owen Straub, Josh Filice-Hollar, Jay Dolmo, Zach Moulden and Brendan Doyle. The team’s only senior, Adam Thompson, is recovering from a knee injury he sustained in November. Straub is the team’s leading rebounder, Are can play any position and has ➝ Gumins, page 22

Enterprise of Redding on Dec. 20 as the highlight of his season. Mason finished with 22 points, but in the previous game against San Jose he struggled mightily. After the San Jose game, Mason took time to analyze the game film and see what he could’ve done better. “I was being hesitant, so against Enterprise, I had the mindset that if I had an open shot, I was going to take it,” Mason said. Mason can drain shots from 3-point range, but he’s trying to develop a rock-solid mid-range game along with the ability to get to the basket off dribble penetration. Drew, meanwhile, has made a nice adjustment coming from middle school and earning a starting role—at point guard, no less—in his freshman season. “It’s been a big jump

because the tempo is faster and they put a lot more pressure on you when you’re dribbling,” Drew said. “But you have the same job of running the offense and getting the team set up as soon as possible.”

Versatile skill set

Drew scores most of his points from outside jump shots, and he credits the Gilroy High coaches along with Mason for helping him improve. Even though Drew and Mason get along, their 1-on-1 games are always competitive and physical. “When we’re playing, he might give me a little elbow or bump, and I’ll give it right back,” Drew said. “We’ve been playing basketball ever since we were babies,” Mason said. “We’ve always had that

competitive edge, and it pushes us to get better and play hard against each other.” Mason is ecstatic that he gets to play on the same team with Drew, as the two had never played on the same team until this season. On the court, the brothers share a cohesion that is hard to duplicate. “We have a much deeper connection than most players on other teams,” Mason said. On a typical set play, Drew has the ball and looks to pass to an open player. Mason, who moves well without the ball, at times runs to the corner ends of the court, and Drew will often find him. Although the brothers are close, they don’t hang out at school. They have different groups of friends, which makes sense considering they’re

been terrific defensively while giving the team toughness, and FiliceHollar has been an effective scorer and rebounder. The Gumin brothers are the team’s captains, and their energy rubs off on the squad in positive ways. Before the season started, Mustangs coach Mike Suarez talked with Mason, encouraging him to evolve as a leader. “We only had two varsity returners, and coach thought me being the vocal leader would help the team grow,” Mason said. “It’s something I’ve tried to work on a lot, things like setting an example on and off the court and keeping teammates accountable. I also try to encourage guys in their toughest moments.” Mason pointed to the team’s 85-75 loss to

two grade levels apart. However, knowing the social dynamics at play, Drew said he’ll follow Mason around at school on occasion just to see if he could get a rise out of his older brother.

Whether they’re joking with one another or being ultra-competitive on the hardwood, Drew and Mason have developed a bond that will last far beyond the basketball court.

Christopher, Gilroy renew El Clasico ➝ From page 21 midfielder Elias Diaz— “He’ll be our stud in the middle,” Padilla said—not only organizes the defense, but he initiates the team’s attack. Diaz and senior Gilberto Cardenas are the team’s pace setters. “Those two are the battery to our team,” Padilla said. “If they’re on, then the whole team is usually moving well.” Cruz Garcia, a senior forward, at 4-foot-11 is the shortest player on the team. However, Padilla said Garcia can flat-out

play and is a differencemaker. Dolan entered the week with a team-high five goals to go along with two assists. “He worked hard in the off-season and is putting himself in the right position at the right time to score,” Padilla said. “He’s a smart player and is developing in terms of reading the game and making adjustments to capitalize.” Jeremy Mendoza, a senior defender, anchors the defense along with junior Carlos Guerrero. Pina, a junior, has done a terrific

job considering he’s in in his first year of playing high school soccer. Add in the fact that Pina had never started taking goalkeeper reps in practice until Jan. 1—the day Gilroy’s former goalkeeper quit the team—makes Pina’s ascension in goal all the more remarkable. Padilla hopes Eduardo Valencia, a senior midfielder, returns to 100 percent health soon. Valencia has missed several games due to injury. “He has an ability on the ball that you don’t really see

amongst high school players,” said Padilla, who compared Valencia’s game to some of the best players at Gilroy High in the last 15 years. “He’s got quickness, speed, control, the vision. He sees the whole field and puts the ball on a dime, and he’s got amazing dribbling and speed.” Espinosa also feels good about his team; in addition to Flores, the Cougars have a dynamic freshman left wing in Caden Booth, who entered the week with a team-best 10 goals in just six games.

“Caden is solid and a great, emerging player,” Espinosa said. “He still has some growing and maturing to do like all freshmen, but he’s going to be amazing in the years ahead.” Booth usually finishes from 10 to 12 yards out, and like the best goal scorers has a knack for putting himself in a great position to receive the ball or deflection in the box and drill a shot with rapid-fire quickness. Espinosa has been satisfied with his goalkeeping tandem of Paulo Gonzalez and Kyle Ferguson.

“We have two guys who can push each other and elevate each other’s play,” Espinosa said. Elias Arvizo, a senior center back and midfielder, gives the team steady play on the backline. Espinosa said the coaching staff is always excited to work with the players. Now it’s a matter of getting in rhythm. “The great thing is (assistant) coach Tod Andrade and I love the kids, and they’ve got some good potential,” he said. “We’re hoping to put together an amazing season.”

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.
