FIREFIGHTERS BLAME FIVE ON ILLEGAL FIREWORKS Michael Moore Reporter

➝ Fires, 5

Robert Eliason

To say that Gilroy’s firefighters have been busy since July 4 would be an understatement, as the city department responded to 10 fires in less than 24 hours during the Independence Day holiday. The action continued through the holiday weekend, as a Sunday afternoon truck fire spread to nearby vegetation and snarled freeway traffic for hours. Five vegetation fires reported on the Fourth of July were caused by errant illegal fireworks, according to Gilroy Fire EMS Division Chief Jim Wyatt. Perhaps the most dramatic blaze that authorities responded to July 4 was a residential structure fire in which a sheriff ’s deputy cut his hand while breaking a window so he could spray water from a garden hose into the home. That fire started about 9:54pm July 4, in the area of Cedar Court and Westwood

TRAIL GUIDES Park Ranger Blake Weaver and her standard poodle Yeti take a break at Mt. Madonna County Park.

Wet noses find trail DOGS AND BEST BUDS TAKE TO FOREST AT DUSK By Debra Eskinazi Magazine and Features Editor

Taking your dog for a walk can be an adventure. Just ask Blake Weaver, senior ranger with Santa Clara County parks who has been hosting special dog hikes at Mt. Madonna County Park since 2005.

“Dogs are such a big part of many of our lives,” said Weaver. “I am lucky enough to work for Santa Clara County Parks at a park that allows dogs to hike the trails on leash.” More than 15 people and their furry companions showed up at dusk on Saturday, July 7 to take a mountain hike through Mt. Madonna trails with Weaver and her standard poodle Yeti. Not only is getting out for a hike good for hikers and their

pets, but these groups hikes add an element of socialization, said Weaver, who lives in Hollister. “I frequently have puppies join the group for this reason,” she said. Weaver cautioned, however that with such privilege comes the responsibility to ensure the dogs leave a small footprint by minimizing the disruption to other people, other dogs and wildlife and they take care not to harm the environment.

Weaver wants hike participants to be prepared to handle any situation a hiker and dog may encounter, such as an unleashed dog in the park or other potential hazards. “I try and let them discuss, emphasizing staying calm, since panicking and yelling just escalates the situation,” she said. “I give tips and share stories of my experiences.” ➝ Dog Hike, 12

Plans for $1 billion reservoir advance GIANT LAKE, AND DAM AT PACHECO PASS COULD EASE STRAIN FROM FUTURE DROUGHT By Barry Holtzclaw Managing Editor

The Santa Clara Valley Water District is moving forward with plans to build a new Pacheco Pass reservoir in San Benito County, which the district describes as a “game-changer” to ease the

impact of future droughts in the Bay Area. If $485 million in state funds are approved this month, supporters they could raise the rest of the $969 million project budget from federal grants and increased water rates to build the largest reservoir constructed in the Bay Area in the past 20 years. The water district board on June 26 approved a memorandum of understanding between the Santa Clara Valley Water District, Pacheco Pass Water District and San Benito County

Water District and approved an option to buy land with the Pacheco Pass Water District for the massive dam and reservoir project, which has been in the planning stages for a decade. The board last year submitted an application to the California Water Commission for funding of the project under Proposition 1, and final hearings before the commission were held in late June. The commission’s decision on state funding is expected by the end of July. While the Prop. 1 application

is being evaluated by the water commission, the water district said it may seek federal legislative authorization for construction funding from Federal Water Infrastructure Improvements. “The Pacheco Reservoir Expansion Project is a modern solution to the age-old challenges of providing a sustainable water supply for our expanding population and businesses,” district staff said in a report. “This project will reduce the frequency and severity ➝ Reservoir, 15

County Schools supt. protests separations DEWAN ASKS TRUMP TO DROP POLICY DIVIDING FAMILIES Staff report

Santa Clara County Schools Superintendent Mary Ann Dewan sent a July 2 letter to the Office of the President of the United States, asking for the reunification of divided families, according to staff. The superintendent for the County Office of Education asks in her letter for “ethical and moral leadership” as well as “kindness and compassion.” It was written in response to the recent increased U.S.Mexico border enforcement which has led to the separation of immigrant families, according to the report. While an executive order was signed by the President June 20 to cease family separation, approximately 2,000 families have yet to be reunited, according to recent reports. The trauma caused by the zero-tolerance measures reaches far beyond the U.S.-Mexico border. “At the Santa Clara County Office of Education, we have initiatives in place to support social-emotional well-being of children in our community. We have gathered resources for families: what to do if you are approached by immigration agents, what documents you should carry with you.

We also provide lists of local legal services providers,” Dewan said. The letter states, “Throughout my county, teachers are having difficult conversations with students because the trauma being inflicted on children by your administration hits close to home as every child’s worst nightmare is to be torn away from their loved ones.” Exposure to trauma has a significant impact on people of all ages; it affects “the social, emotional and physical well-being of the child,” Dewan wrote. “It is unacceptable and has the potential to cause irreparable harm to the children victimized by these actions. Children could face longlasting anxiety, depression and other forms of mental illness that could impair their performance at school and cause problems throughout their lives,” the letter continues. “I do not know whether the President will read my letter, but it is my sincerest hope that consideration is given toward kindness and compassion,” Dewan added.

State Supe on family separations

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson released a June 29 statement on the Trump administration’s policy of separating families seeking asylum from human rights abuses, violence and crime. “I am saddened and angered by the treatment of families and young

children at our southern border,” said Torlakson. “Families who come to the United States seeking economic security, new opportunities and physical safety face great adversity and danger on their journeys. They should be greeted with understanding and compassion. Instead, immigration officials have separated families with little hope of reunification, prosecuted asylum-seekers and detained prospective immigrants indefinitely.” Torlakson decried the policy of separating families as “cruel, inhumane and unacceptable.” “Children could face long-lasting anxiety, depression and other forms of mental illness that could harm their performance at school and cause problems throughout their lives,” Torlakson continued. The state education office has joined 17 other states and the District of Columbia in a lawsuit against the Trump administration, challenging its practice of refusing entry for asylum seekers at our southern borders and “the cruel and unlawful policy of forcibly separating families,” according to Torlakson. “We must treat those who come to our nation seeking refuge in a compassionate way, one that reflects the values upon which this nation was built,” he concluded. “We are a nation of immigrants that has welcomed people from all over the world. This diversity is our strength.”

electrical wiring or equipment, about 2:30pm July 4 in the Sunrise District. The structure on fire was a single story, single family home, Wyatt said. Gilroy firefighters gained automatic aid from the South County Fire District. Firefighters arrived and inspected the interior of the home, where a smell of burning electrical equipment was apparent. No fire was located, but the homeowner was advised of a possibly faulty electrical appliance, for which they should seek an inspection from an electrician, according to Wyatt. No damage resulted from that incident. • At 8:08pm July 4, firefighters responded to a grass fire off Chestnut Street. An approximately 100 square foot area in a dry creek bed had been ignited, apparently by illegal fireworks, Wyatt said. Firefighters quickly extinguished those flames upon arrival. The burnt remnants of a fireworks mortar was found in a nearby tree, Wyatt said. • Another grass fire was reported at 8:27pm July 4, this time on Burchell Road at Hecker Pass. An area of vegetation about 50 feet by 50 feet burned before firefighters extinguished the blaze. This fire was “apparently” caused by illegal fireworks, according to Wyatt. • An “outside rubbish, trash or waste fire that included some abandoned vehicles” was reported at 9:19pm July 4 near Ferguson Road. No cause of this fire has been reported.

Drive. Firefighters responded to a report that a single-story, single family home was burning with “light smoke” drifting from the side of the building, Wyatt said in an email. Nobody was home when firefighters responded. Gilroy police were already on the scene when firefighters arrived, and an off-duty Santa Clara County Sheriff ’s deputy broke a window when he saw smoke coming from the bathroom window. “He took a garden hose, broke out the window and began applying water where he could,” Wyatt said. “He suffered a small cut to his hand.” The cut was the only injury reported in relation to any of the recent fires. The first firefighter on scene forced entry into the home to begin extinguishing the blaze, according to Wyatt. The flames were quickly extinguished after firefighters set up hose lines to the source of the fire. Two dogs were reportedly residents of the burning home, and both were found nearby unharmed, Wyatt said. Fire damage to the home was “limited to the bathroom and hall,” with smoke and water damage to the east side of the home’s interior. American Red Cross arrived at the scene to assist the family with shelter needs. Other fires reported in Gilroy July 4, and early in the morning July 5, include: • A structure fire, possibly caused by faulty

FIREBALL’S AFTERMATH A big-rig caught on fire on U.S. 101 south of Highway 25 Sunday afternoon,

bringing a significant response from firefighters and tying up traffic for several hours. • At 9:29pm July 4, another fire reportedly started by illegal fireworks occurred near Church Street at Farrell Avenue. An area of vegetation about 25 feet by 25 feet burned before neighbors put out the blaze using buckets of water. The fire was out before firefighters arrived. • At 10:28pm July 4, firefighters arrived to a brush and grass fire in the Chestnut District to find the homeowner extinguishing burning juniper bushes in his front yard, according to Wyatt. This fire was allegedly caused by illegal fireworks.

• Someone purposely set two storm drains and a garbage bin on fire near Camino Arroyo. Firefighters arrived at 1:56pm July 4, and found the storm drains had been stuffed with debris and other combustible materials, according to Wyatt. • At 12:28am July 5, firefighters responded to a “contained trash or rubbish fire” in the Las Animas fire district. The fire was contained to a blue recycling container, and apparently started when someone discarded previously ignited fireworks into the container. • Firefighters responded

to three shopping carts on fire at 2:04am July 5. One of the carts was near Brem Lane, and the other two were burning near Holloway Street. Each fire was set intentionally, Wyatt said. The first arriving fire engine extinguished each fire.

Big-rig fire ties up traffic

Gilroy Fire received automatic aid from the South County Fire District and called in off-duty firefighters in response to a big-rig that caught on fire on U.S. 101 Sunday afternoon. The fire started about 4pm July 8 on the

southbound side of the freeway, just south of Highway 25, according to fire authorities. The blaze extended into the grass in the center divider and spread to the northbound side of U.S. 101. About .75 acre of vegetation, along with the bigrig truck, burned before the fire was extinguished. CalFire Air resources along with 13 ground apparatus responded to contain and put out the fire. Both northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. 101 were closed for several hours due to the fire and response. No injuries were reported.

OPINION LETTER

Bravery vs. Babbittry at the City Council

GUEST VIEW ZACHARY HILTON

‘Walkable, bikeable’ future is in Gilroy

I

t’s a Saturday afternoon in Gilroy, and the family is looking for something to do. You decide to stay local and get the bikes ready for a ride. You call up the neighbors and meet on the Levee Class l Bike/Ped Trail, which is referred to as the recreation spine of the city. You ride up the trail along Uvas Creek and take in the views of the yearround green hills. You stop off at the park and let the kids run wild for a bit. More local neighbors join you at the park. You realize time has passed quickly and your reservations at the new farm-to-table restaurant are quickly approaching. No need to stress because it’s located just one more mile along the Bike/Ped Path, and you get free front row bicycle parking at the new Ag-Tourist Hecker Pass destination. This is just one of the many reasons the Hecker Pass project will benefit the city as a whole, while enhancing the walkable and bikeable capabilities of the neighborhood. This project is designed to reward the walkers and bikers, which is why the parking lot is located where it is on Lone Oak Way. The Walk Score of the residential developments in Hecker Pass are 3 out of 100. This means that there are no basic services like grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, flower shops and retail within walking distance. You need a vehicle to run all errands. Creating livable communities for all ages means that you will have healthy, active and engaged people living there. This project and others that will follow will create a livable community for those residents who live close by, but also engage those who live within walking distance. The children will benefit the most in the Hecker Pass Specific Plan since they will have a protected path for Safe Routes to School.

The Gilroy Bicycle Pedestrian Commission studies these community needs and what it takes to build walkable and bikeable communities. We regularly promote the concept of free-range people. This commercial project and the Class I Bike/Ped Trail came through the Gilroy Bicycle Pedestrian Commission in May 2017 and August 2017 where we provided our recommendations for the staff report. During these two public meetings, we never heard from the general public regarding safety. The streets are narrow by design to slow all vehicles. It is safe to ride on the streets, and we teach the youth across the city how to ride and walk safely with Safe Routes to School. This project will support the Safe Routes to School programs here in Gilroy because we are teaching the youth to stay local and out of their cars. They have the tools to ride and walk safely around their neighborhoods. I am looking forward to projects like this one that meet the current cost of living and lifestyle in which that I’m raising my family. The Gilroy City Council approved the project and stayed the course with its No. 1 goal of economic development, promoting the recent resolution of Ag-Tourism in the Hecker Pass Corridor and creating walkable and bikeable communities. Gilroy and the west side of town are craving for upscale destinations to take our families. As a resident who lives on Third Street, I welcome the increase of traffic by walkers, bikers, scooters and vehicles. It means my neighbors are staying local and being active in the community. The most liberating way to live among all incomes and the most profitable investments we can make in a community today are to make them more walkable and bikeable.

Dear editor, The many concerned citizens at the July 3 City Council meeting endured a very long and tedious sales pitch for Skippy Spiering’s Apartment Complex Masquerading as AgriTourism proposal for blighting Hecker Pass. Trouble is, the promotional talk that touched on and attempted to defuse every objection to the project was delivered by a Gilroy city planner, whose salary is covered by taxpayers who will suffer under this cynically designed monstrosity. Even the developer acknowledged the city employee did a much better job than he at selling the plan. The city’s planners called the Hecker Pass corridor “The Jewel of Gilroy,” but then again, unscrupulous people are always looking to steal jewels—and this one was plucked at the meeting. The plan, described by many as a “monstrosity”, a “strip mall” and a “monolith,” was reportedly approved by an historian who attested to the rural authenticity of the design. As it turns out, this expert on barns works from 582 Market St. in San Francisco, where barns are pretty hard to find. I don’t know how much the city paid for this historian, but I would have offered my input for free; a few years ago I did a blog for the Gilroy Dispatch on barns (on the paper’s site, search for “Barn Again”) and I’ve been around here for 59 years. I’m sure longtime local historians like Connie Rogers, Beth Wyman, Teddy Goodrich, Elizabeth Barratt, Mike Monroe and others would also gladly donate their knowledge because they care deeply about our area; this could have been a substantial savings to the city. As a college student I read Sinclair Lewis’ novel, Babbitt, an indictment of the soulless boosterism of some who place profit above the quality of community life. On July 3, I listened to dialogue that could have been lifted from his satirical novel, as a parade of cheerleaders for “progress” told how Skippy’s plan would bring happiness and prosperity, drawing hoards of tourists to our little corner of the world, despite the protestations of so many citizens who told of their fears of traffic on narrow streets, danger to playing children, erosion of property values, degradation to our rural atmosphere, noise and light pollution, blocking of views— the loss of much that had attracted them to Gilroy and prompted their financial and emotional investment. Many testified they had no real knowledge of the possibility of a project that was so tall and oversized. These taxpayers said any mention of future development was that it would have only an agricultural nature that could include ruraltype mom-and-pop commerce. Others said there was no mention at all. But there is bravery to report, and it is heartening. At a Planning Commission hearing, commissioners Tom Fischer and Sam Kim stood out for their clear statement that even if Skippy’s proposal met the letter of the Hecker Pass Plan, it did not meet the spirit, and needed downsizing. At Monday’s meeting it was Dion Bracco and Roland Velasco who represented the community rather than boosterism when they called for a redesign. Phill Laursen

A state legislative committee sent the 100 percent clean energy bill to the full Assembly, setting up a vote later this year. The bill’s revival is a tentative victory for its author, Democratic Sen.

It would then set a goal of getting all remaining energy from resources that don’t produce climate changing gases by 2045, leaving details of the plan to be hashed out later. “This will put us on the pathway to clean renewable energy and economic growth for the future of California,” de Leon said. Critics include business interests and utilities, which warn that industrial power users, like factories and food processors, and consumers will be left paying higher prices. They worry that the bill would prematurely make fossil fuel plants obsolete, rendering them stranded assets that don’t generate revenue but still must be paid off by ratepayers. “Not now,” said Assemblyman Jim Patterson, a Republican from Fresno. “This is a leap of faith and a gamble.” The action came as the Senate also considers legislation to turn California’s energy grid manager, the Independent System Operator, into a regional entity open to utilities across the West, and as Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative leaders consider making it easier for utilities to reduce liability for wildfire damage. The issues could get linked in negotiations.

Report says GPD training inadequate CRISIS TRAINING NEEDED FOR MENTAL HEALTH INCIDENTS Michael Moore

A Santa Clara County Civil Grand Jury report highlights the growing need for police to be extensively trained in how to deal with an increasing number of calls involving subjects who are mentally ill. The report, titled “Police and the Mentally Ill” and published by the watchdog group in May, found that nine of the 31 people who died in officerinvolved shootings from 2013 to 2017 were mentally ill. Twenty-two of the 56 total police shootings during that time involved someone with mental health issues.

He said Gilroy police Among local police officers respond to such calls agencies, Gilroy in 2017 frequently, without anyone had the lowest percentage being hurt or killed. of officers who have com“I think we have a pleted additional critical pretty good track record— incident training above there have been some seriand beyond the basic ous ones where (officers)

were able to talk them down,” Smithee said. “We deal with this kind of stuff a lot, and yet when have you ever heard of us shooting one of them?” He added, “Mental health is one of the up and coming problems we’re seeing. It’s definitely an increasing problem in our society.” Smithee explained that critical incident training helps officers understand what someone in a mental health crisis is going through when they respond to a call, and “how to react without escalating their behaviors.” There was one fatal officer-involved shooting in Gilroy during the 2013-2017 period studied by the grand jury. Mental health was not a factor in that incident, according to the report. On Feb. 25, Gilroy

resident Steven Juarez died during a struggle with police who were trying to arrest him. This death did not occur in the period covered by the grand jury report, and the DA’s office is still investigating that incident. The cause of Juarez’s death has not been released by the coroner’s office, and it is unknown if he was suffering a mental health crisis when officers responded to arrest him. At the Morgan Hill Police Department, 85 percent of the agency’s 39 officers have completed the additional critical incident training beyond the minimum, the grand jury reported. There were no officer-involved shootings in Morgan Hill during the period covered by the grand jury. The District Attorney’s

office determined that 28 of the department’s 31 officer-involved shootings were justifiable under state criminal law. The office was still reviewing the other three cases at the time the civil grand jury report was compiled. The report gives a comprehensive summary of the level of training that officers in each of the county’s law enforcement agencies have received in responding to mentally ill subjects. The grand jury report also lists a number of findings and recommendations for law enforcement agencies to improve and increase officers’ training in mental health crisis intervention. The full report can be found online at scscourt.org/court_divisions/civil/cgj/grand_jury. shtml.

Morgan Hill Police

Morgan Hill Police arrested a Gilroy sex offender for allegedly attempting to sexually assault a local woman July 3, according to authorities. About 12:16pm, a 20-year-old woman was walking home from

downtown Morgan Hill when she noticed she was being followed by a man in a silver SUV, reads a July 5 press release from Morgan Hill Police Department. The woman noticed the vehicle was following her in the area of Dunne and Del Monte avenues. As the woman continued walking, the SUV appeared to pass her, park and wait for her to catch up, police said. The driver also appeared to be recording her when she walked past his vehicle as he repeated the cycle. When the woman arrived

Values show continued growth in 2018 GILROY CITY PROPERTIES ASSESSED AT $8.7 BILLION Bryce Stoepfel Reporter

The value of property in Gilroy increased by $565.5 million in 2017, a growth rate of 6.95 percent, slightly below the countywide rate, Santa Clara County Assessor Larry Stone reported. Overall, property in Gilroy was valued for tax purposes at $8.7 billion. That’s good economic news and good news for local governments, but it could mean higher property tax bills for some. Less than 10 years after the Great Recession, Stone reported that as of Jan. 1, 2018, the value of all property in the county

increased by 7.34 percent in 2017 to $483.2 billion. The value of property in Morgan Hill increased by $222.2 million, a 7.73 percent increase from the previous year. As of Jan. 1, property in Morgan Hill was worth a total of $3.1 billion. The assessor’s annual report on the county’s property tax roll value, published on June 28, notes that the county’s property value growth in 2018 was led by the Bay Area’s continually growing high-tech sector. Most of that growth occurs outside South County. The largest cogs running the Bay Area’s economic machine are Google, Apple, Samsung, LinkedIn and Nvidia. The economic tech dreadnought, Apple accounted

for an increase of $1.5 billion, mostly from its Apple Park campus in Cupertino. According to the press release issued by the Office of the County Assessor, as compared to the dot-com boom—which went bust 18 years ago—today’s hightech businesses have used real earnings and profits to acquire land and buildings, rather than depend on long-term leases based on speculative earnings. “Rebounding from the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression, Silicon Valley’s economy has surged back to record levels,” Stone said in a press release. “Santa Clara County is well into the eighth year of recovery since the bottom of the recession in 2010. The turnaround is remarkable.”

Countywide unemployment, which rose to 11.2 percent in 2010, dropped to 2.3 percent in 2018. The shortage of capable hightech workers has driven up wages, Stone said. To accommodate the overall glut of workers, the need to expand office space and housing for these workers has grown as well. “Employment growth during the past eight years has triggered an incredible demand for office and industrial space, apartments and homes,” Stone said. “The result has been a nearly two-thirds increase in the county’s net values.” Rents continued to increase along with housing prices. According to Stone, rent for apartments in metropolitan San Jose has increased by

WHAT’S IT ALL WORTH? $483.2 billion: Total value of all Santa Clara County property as of Jan. 1 $8.7 billion: Total value of all property in Gilroy as of Jan. 1 6.95: Percentage increase in Gilroy’s total value from 2017

52 percent since 2010. In Santa Clara County, 68 percent of homes sold for more than the asking price and 22 percent of residential transactions were all cash, Stone said. Starting on June 29, the Assessor's Office began to mail annual assessment notices to 490,146 county property owners reporting each property’s assessed value, and a preview of this fall’s property tax bills. According to the assessor's

office, Santa Clara County is one of only nine counties in California that send early notice to property owners. “Most property owners in California learn of their assessed value for the first time when they receive their property tax bill in October,” Stone said. For more information or to dispute a property’s assessed value, visit sccassessor.org.

Police cite more than 60 for fireworks MAN ARRESTED JULY 4 WITH LOADED HANDGUN, DRUGS, FIREWORKS Staff report

The evening of July 4 was a busy night for the Gilroy Police Department, which fielded more than 400 calls for service and wrote more than 60 citations for illegal fireworks violations. Police also reported that before the night was over, a Gilroy man with

several warrants out for his arrest was detained with illegal fireworks, methamphetamine and a loaded handgun. The Gilroy Police Department deployed 12 extra officers for the evening. These officers were dedicated to enforcing fireworks violations, according to Gilroy Police Sgt. Jason Smith. Most of these officers patrolled in undercover vehicles, allowing them to keep a low profile before issuing citations and confiscating contraband. This July 4 holiday, officers used the FOREalert

smartphone application to allow residents to easily report possible fireworks violations. Almost 400 people in Gilroy downloaded the app. Officers received reports in real time directly from the app to their tablet computers in their patrol cars, shortening police response times and lessening the burden on the emergency dispatch center that would have received these calls otherwise, according to Smith. Throughout the evening, officers responded to 410 calls for service. Of these, 176 calls were

related to fireworks, according to Smith. Between 4pm July 4 and 2am July 5, the dispatch center received 309 calls for service; 175 of these were for fireworks. Citizens using the FOREalert app collectively sent 438 reports of illegal fireworks in Gilroy, according to police. The app was active from 6pm July 4 to 12:15am July 5. Police also noted they issued 18 criminal citations for fireworks violations, an increase from eight citations during the 2017 holiday. In addition, officers wrote 44 administrative

citations for people who allegedly violated the city fireworks ordinance; that’s an increase from three such citations in 2017. At one point during the evening of July 4, officers on patrol contacted two people were verbally arguing near the intersection of Monterey Road and Ervin Court in Gilroy. One of these subjects, Michael Perez, 41, gave police a false name and fled the area on foot, according to Smith. Officers chased him, and Perez was captured after running a short distance, police said. He was

allegedly in possession of methamphetamine and a number of rounds of .45-caliber ammunition. The officers searched Perez’ vehicle nearby and found a loaded .45-caliber handgun in the passenger compartment, illegal fireworks and drug paraphernalia, police said. He also had numerous warrants for his arrest. Perez was arrested and booked at Santa Clara County Jail. The public can call the Gilroy Police non-emergency line at 408- 8460350 to report fireworks violations. For emergencies, call 911.

Take a hike and take your dog along Dog Hike, 1

Robert Eliason

PET LOVER Patty Guthrie and her furry pal Crystal share a moment before embarking on their evening hike. Depending on other events scheduled at the park, Weaver tries to schedule these summer hikes at least once a month. The next hike is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25. Weaver loves sharing the park with the visitors, but best part of it all is sharing information and getting to meet wonderful people and dogs.

Robert Eliason

The majority of Weaver’s organized hikes occur in the evening when it’s not too hot. “Our trails close to hikers at sunset for their safety,” Weaver said. “On these hikes, visitors can experience the park at night with a park ranger and not worry about getting lost.” She’s earned quite a following in the last decade. “I am moving parks to Coyote Lake’s Harvey Bear Ranch in October and I already have dog owners asking me to please continue my hikes there,” she said. Weaver acknowledges Mt. Madonna, located at the top of Hecker Pass off CA 152, is a bit out of the way for people. “It does amaze me how far people will travel to attend a hike.”

In a June 6 vote of 544 GTA members, 84 percent voted in favor of a strike authorization unless the union demands are met. GTA leaders said that would happen sometime shortly after the start of the 2018-19 school year. The first day of instruction is scheduled for Aug. 16.

GUSD’s starting salary for a first-year teacher is set at $50,743, according to edjoin.org, the education recruiter site used by California school districts. Other nearby local school districts with higher starting salaries, include Morgan Hill Unified School ($54,989), San Jose Unified ($54,958) and East Side High School District ($55,349). At both San Jose Unified and East Side, full-time employees pay no out-of-pocket premiums for health benefits.

Pacheco Creek dam would create lake Reservoir, 1

Improve water quality, reducing taste and odor problems that result from seasonal algae blooms in San Luis Reservoir and cause Santa Clara Valley Water District operators to curtail deliveries from this source Provide an emergency water supply to Santa Clara and San Benito counties Increase reliability of imported water supplies to Santa Clara and San Benito counties Provide additional water for groundwater recharge, benefiting agricultural water users downstream of the new dam Increase operational flexibility of water supplies at San Luis Reservoir and throughout Santa Clara County Improve opportunities for water transfers through San Luis Reservoir District board member Gary Kremen, who chairs the water district’s Pacheco Reservoir Exploratory Ad Hoc Committee, said, “It is not often that we encounter an opportunity to build something that will have such profound benefits for the environment, flood control and water supply. There are few suitable spots in California for new water storage, and fewer still that substantially help threatened fish species. We’re fortunate to have one of those spots in our backyard.” The expanded reservoir would be filled with storm runoff from the surrounding watershed, and would also be used to store water imported through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

The project would include a new earthen dam and spillway. Other features are new pipelines, tunnels and a pump station to connect the new reservoir to the Pacheco Conduit, an existing pipeline near Highway 152 that conveys water from San Luis Reservoir to Santa Clara and San Benito counties. Key project partners include the Pacheco Pass and San Benito County water districts and eight wildlife refuges in the San Joaquin River Hydrologic Region. Support letters from 46 California state legislators, organizations, resource conservation districts, water agencies and individuals were included in the application. Jerry J. Smith, Ph.D., a fisheries biologist with experience studying Pacheco Creek since 1972 wrote the district, “The additional storage in the enlarged reservoir would potentially allow for increased releases from the reservoir into Pacheco Creek for rearing, including expanding releases to drought years when the existing reservoir would have insufficient storage to provide adequate releases for rearing steelhead.” Josué García, CEO of the Santa Clara and San Benito Counties Building and Construction Trades Council, wrote, “This investment in our future will create both short- and long-term jobs as well as increase local control of the water supply. Together, these changes will create consistent economic growth for the entire Silicon Valley.”

Santa Clara Valley

of water shortages, provide flood protection for disadvantaged communities, as well as protect and grow the native steelhead population.” The proposed state funding would come from Prop. 1, which was approved by nearly three-quarters of San Benito and Santa Clara county voters in 2014. The funding would come from the $2.7 billion Water Storage Investment Program, part of California’s Water Quality, Supply and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014, a $7.5 billion bond passed by voters. The project would establish a new dam and expanded reservoir on the North Fork of Pacheco Creek that could hold 141,000 acre-feet of water, a substantial increase from the 6,000-acre-foot capacity of the existing reservoir. Constructed in 1939 and used for groundwater recharge, the reservoir is located about 13 miles southwest of San Luis Reservoir, off Highway 152. The district describes project’s potential benefits as “vast,” including the following: Increase suitable habitat in Pacheco Creek for the federally threatened South Central California Coast steelhead Develop water supplies for the environmental needs of wildlife refuges to support habitat management in the delta watershed Reduce flood risks for communities along Pacheco Creek and the Pajaro River as it flows through Watsonville

NEW RESERVOIR SITE This new Pacheco Creek reservoir would be located

just north of Highway 152 in northeastern San Benito County.

The land is currently owned by the tiny Pacheco Pass Water District and is submerged under a small lake used by farmers that is known as Pacheco Reservoir. The Santa Clara Valley Water District agreed to pay the Pacheco Pass Water District $200,000 for the land under a 15-year option. The Santa Clara district would then construct the new $969 million reservoir on, or slightly upstream from, the existing reservoir in the rugged ranch lands about half a mile north of Highway 152 near Casa de Fruta. The larger district would guarantee the Pacheco district a similar amount of water as it is getting now.

“The reliability of our water supply system is really key,” said Norma Camacho, CEO of the Santa Clara Valley Water District. “When you are dealing with climate change and recurring droughts, we are going to need an emergency water supply. It allows for more resiliency. It’s an insurance policy.” The Santa Clara Valley Water District is a government agency based in San Jose that provides water and flood protection to 1.9 million people from Palo Alto to Gilroy. The existing reservoir was built on the North Fork of Pacheco Creek in 1939 behind a 100-foot earthen dam now badly

in need of costly repairs. There are eight bids in the running to replace it with a new reservoir that would hold more than 23 times as much water. The water district has yet to identify where the other $484 million needed to build the new reservoir would come from. The district could try to tap federal sources, but raising local water bills is considered the most likely way to raise the money.

Public Notice

Calero Dam Seismic Retrofit Project You are invited! Who:

Santa Clara Valley Water District

What:

Scoping meeting for Environmental Impact Report

When:

Wednesday, July 18, 2018, 5:30 p.m.

Where: Santa Clara Valley Water District, 5750 Almaden Expressway, CA 95118, Administration Building, Conference Room B108. The project would consist of activities associated with remedying seismic, flood passage and long-term operations at Calero Dam. The project goals and objectives are to: •

Stabilize the Calero Dam embankment to withstand a maximum credible earthquake.

Implement improvements as necessary for the dam system to safely pass the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF).

Ensure that outlet works and hydraulic control system meet the Division of Safety of Dams (DSOD) requirements.

Replace and modernize the spillway to increase freeboard.

Breach Fellow’s Dike, an older and smaller dam located on the southern-most section of the reservoir that is severely deteriorated.

Incorporate other measures to address seismic and other dam safety deficiencies identified through the project delivery process.

The proposed project would include excavation and construction of a downstream earthen buttress, mining of rock from nearby borrow areas, raising the dam crest by approximately four feet, constructing a new intake structure, a new spillway and constructing new outlet facilities to the creek below the left dam abutment. The water district, acting as lead agency for the proposed project, has determined that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is required to satisfy requirements cited in the California Environmental Quality Act. A draft EIR will evaluate the environmental conditions in and around the project area and analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with implementing the project. A Notice of Preparation (NOP) has been prepared and circulated to local, state and federal agencies responsible for project approval or permitting for a 30-day review period to define the scope and content of the draft EIR. Copies of the NOP are available for review from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the Santa Clara Valley Water District Headquarters Building, 5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118, starting July 18, 2018. The NOP can also be accessed online at: https://www.valleywater.org/project-updates/ public-review-documents. The water district will hold a scoping meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at the Santa Clara Valley Water District, 5750 Almaden Expressway, 95118, Administration Building, Conference Room B108. The scoping meeting will provide an opportunity to learn about the project, ask questions and provide comments about the scope and content of the information to be addressed in the draft EIR. If you are unable to attend the scoping meeting, you can still provide written comments for consideration during preparation of the draft EIR by sending comments no later than Monday, August 20, 2018 at 5 p.m. to: Santa Clara Valley Water District Attention: Ryan Heacock 5750 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118 or rheacock@valleywater.org For further information, please contact Ryan Heacock at (408) 630-3202 or by e-mail. 07/2018 BA

The City of Hollister earlier this year rejected plans for a Fourth of July motorcycle festival, but that didn’t stop hundreds of Harley riders from descending on San Benito Street on July 7 in an informal, impromptu communal gathering of leather-clad enthusiasts. The nearly 150 ‘hogs’ and their riders filled downtown, and visited the iconic Johnnie’s bar and other local restaurants (and gas stations) in homage to a more restless visitation by bikers 71 years ago. Police reported no increase in weekend incidents. HARLEY HEAVEN Hollister visitors on July 7.

A Sisterhood

DELIVERING STRONG Gilroy Majors All Star pitcher Catarina Correia has been one of the team’s standout pitchers along with Penelope Lopez

and Isabela Sousa. Gilroy ran roughshod over the District 59 competition before getting eliminated in the Sectional Tournament in Martinez.

GILROY ALL STARS HAVE FUN AND WIN, TOO emanuel lee Sports Editor

Robert Eliason

Gilroy Majors Softball All Star team manager/head coach Augusto Correia had a problem in the District 59 championship game against the San Jose Spartans on June 28. “It was hard to get everyone in,” Correia said, referring to the team’s 23-2, 3-inning mercy rule victory. “But I was able to get all 12 players in.” Little League softball rules state that every player is entitled to one at-bat and six outs in the field, and Correia was able to get his reserves plenty of playing time. Gilroy advanced to the Delta Sectionals in Martinez last weekend, where it was eliminated in two games. Despite the two losses in sectionals, Gilroy had a fine season. “We’ll focus on the Delta Sectionals first and take it from there,” said Correia, who credited assistant coaches Kathy Bennett and Paulo Sousa for being instrumental in the players’ development and on-field play. “We’re expecting lot more tougher competition. I’m very proud of our girls—they’ve worked hard and come a long way. Some of these girls just one or two years ago were learning the game and now playing at a high level.” The roster includes Caitlyn Correia, Catarina Correia, Kyli Foreman, Gianna Herrera, Bella James, Rebecca James, Alyssa Lopez, Penelope Lopez, Ava Quiroz, Katelin Rausch, Isabela Sousa, Aubrey Starks, and assistant coaches Kathy Bennett

and Paulo Sousa. Correia and his wife, Melissa—who takes care of the team’s administration duties—have two daughters on the team in Caitlyn and Catarina and also a niece in Sousa. The entire team is a family, making the experience all the more enjoyable. “It’s a dream come true to be able to experience this with all of these girls,” Melissa Correia said. “Our two daughters and many of these girls learned to play the game through Gilroy Little League, and they’ve grown from the experience.” The Correias credit the team’s unofficial pitching coach—out of respect they only refer to him as coach Alfredo—for helping develop the team’s three pitchers: Catarina Correia, Lopez and Sousa. “He’s put in endless hours as a volunteer just working with them,” Melissa said. “They have gotten so much help and would not be where they are without him. A lot of girls in Gilroy are coached by him. Coach Alfredo has been just phenomenal. Our pitchers are all different and effective. Coach Alfredo’s goal is to see everyone he coaches play high school ball if that is their desire. He prepares them nicely and puts them in a position to succeed for the future.” Even though literally everyone on the team contributed to the championship win, the offensive onslaught was led by Quiroz, Foreman and Starks. Quiroz and Foreman, in particular, hit home runs in both tournament games. Caitlyn Correia and Catarina Correia are the catchers, and Caitlyn— despite being one of the smallest girls on the team—knows how to take control. “She is a glue-type player who keeps everyone together,” Augusto said. “This was a great tournament because everyone

Majors All Star team. After dominating district play, Gilroy advanced to the sectional tournament. is happy when they get to play a lot.” Augusto has no idea on how the team will fare in the Sectional Tournament, but he wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up being the premier squad of the tourney. “The girls are looking forward to what’s next,” he said. “They want to be challenged and play the best.” Three of the players—Caitlyn

Correia, Lopez and Perez— played on last year’s Minor League All Star team that won NorCals, the farthest stage for the Minors level. So there’s plenty of championship pedigree on this talent-laden squad. Gilroy, of course, always has a strong pool of softball players. Melissa is amazed on just how far the girls have come. “Some of the girls on this team started at an instructional

level at 7 or 8 years old,” she said. “And here they are now representing Gilroy and you can’t help but be proud. We’ve all become families because these girls have been playing off and on together for at least the last four years. We always joke if you’re in Gilroy and have a daughter, they’re playing softball. It’s our thing, and we’ve definitely built a lot of friendships within this town with this great game.”

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 California Civil Code.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Rodney L. Cordell , a/k/a Rodney Lee Cordell, a/k/a Rodney Cordell A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Scott A. Cordell in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara. The PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: Scott A. Cordell be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. 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 in this court as follows: Date: 08-31-2018 Time: 9:00 a.m. Dept: 12, Superior Court of California County of Santa Clara, 191 N. First Street, San Jose, California, 95113. 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: Stephen S.
