Student survey reveals culture of stress HALF OF LOS ALTOS HIGH KIDS CAN’T SLEEP; MOST SAY THEY’RE BURNED OUT By Kelsey Mesher


os Altos High School senior Sarah Loebner had pulled an all-nighter to finish her senior class project, a research paper and presentation every student must pass in order to graduate. When she got to class, it seemed like she was the only one who had

been so pressed for time: “How is everyone else on top of this?” she wondered. Loebner’s final report was 18 pages — three pages longer than necessary. She was concerned that if she didn’t pass, she would not graduate, though she has already been accepted at several competitive universities. By the end of it all, she said, she hated her topic: She had written about happi-

ness. Students at Los Altos High School are some of the highestachieving in the nation. And while most will go on to attend a junior college or four-year university, a survey of students taken by fellow students last spring indicates that success has a price: too much See STRESS, page 11 MICHELLE LE

What do you think of the proposed cuts to Caltrain service? “I hate to see this change. Maybe a 50-cent fare hike per zone might help the budget problems. It’s hard to reduce your carbon footprint without convenient mass transit.” Kurt Cocking, Mountain View

“I was going to move closer to the Caltrain station for convenience, but now I’m not so sure. I work here and live in San Francisco, and I’d have no way of getting back late. At least my car runs after midnight.”

MVLA trustees consider $1.6 million in cuts


By Kelsey Mesher


igh school district officials weighed proposals for budget reductions for the 2010-11 school year during a special meeting Tuesday evening — and although no final decisions were made, trustees gave a hard look at more than $1.6 million in cuts. Trustees of the Mountain ViewLos Altos High School District vetted a long list of items that had been prioritized over the last two

Bay City News


aced with a staggering deficit, Caltrain will consider cutting its service significantly in the next 15 months, spokeswoman Tasha Bartholomew said Wednesday. Bartholomew said the agency is losing money due to a combination of factors, including the loss of $10 million in state funding for each of the past three years and declining ridership, which accounts for 40 percent of the agency’s revenue. “Caltrain never had a dedicated funding source,” Bartholomew said. “We’ve been running on a deficit for quite some time, and now everything is coming to a head.” She said changes, which could include cutting midday, late night and weekend service, would take effect by June 2011. The service cuts could be handled in a number of ways and could be implemented in one sweep or gradually, Bartholomew said. At a Caltrain board meeting Wednesday, members said they wanted to discuss the issue further before making any decisions. One member recommended creating a three-member subcommittee to explore options. Caltrain has a $97 million annual budget and faces a $2.7 million deficit for the current fiscal year. The deficit could balloon to about $30 million, Bartholomew said. Bartholomew said Caltrain receives $40 million in annual funding from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, and the San Mateo County Transit District, or SamTrans, which serves as the managing agency for Caltrain. She said funding from all three entities may be drastically reduced in the near future. “We all have the same problem,” she said. “We’re all losing money, and we’re all just trying to figure out how to function.” V

Hockey team rolls to championship By Kelsey Mesher


group of Mountain View High School boys captured a division title in club roller hockey last Saturday, clinching a win against a Lincoln High School team that had beat them three times in the regular season. Ranked second in the division, the Spartans had a bye during the first round of the single-elimination tournament. In the second round they faced off against Leigh High

School of San Jose. “For our first game of the night, it was really close,” said senior Kyle Laffey, the team’s captain. “It was back and forth. They scored with like three minutes left and we thought we were going to lose.” Tied at the buzzer, the game moved into sudden death and then a shoot-out. Spartan goalie Robbie Hinson, a senior, saved every shot on goal. Then sophomore Conner Treuhaft scored, moving the Spartans

into the finals against the Lincoln Lions. “It was a really big game and there was a lot of pressure,” Laffey said, adding that the Lions are known for their end-game. “We came out really strong and scored two goals right away,” he said. But sure enough, Lincoln put up a fight. Tied with less than a minute to go, Treuhaft got possession

Mountain View parent upset with the lack of school tax revenue from the city’s Shoreline area is going to unusual lengths to publicize the issue. Mountain View resident Steve Nelson has written a counterargument to Measure A, a $41.3 million Mountain View-Los Altos High School District bond measure that will be on the June ballot. In it, he asks voters to cast a “no” vote — not because there is something significantly wrong with the high school bond measure, but to protest the city’s Shoreline Community tax district, which diverts property tax

revenue from local schools. Mountain View Whisman School District officials began raising the issue recently in hopes of getting a larger share of property taxes from Shoreline companies like Google. By contrast, high school officials have said they are “satisfied” with the current tax arrangement. But Nelson is taking the issue to their ballot measure anyway. “Think of this property tax extension as a referendum,” he writes in the rebuttal. “Should Google, Microsoft and the Shoreline District businesses get out of regular school taxes, forever?” As the Voice reported on March 12, the tax district diverts millions

in property taxes from Shorelinearea companies — $10 million this year alone — away from local schools and into a city fund. The fund covers city services and improvements to the Shoreline business park area north of Highway 101, including Shoreline Park operations. City officials say the area would not be the economic engine that it is without this special fund to help maintain and improve it. They also point out that both the elementary and high school districts receive several perks paid out of the fund, including about a half-million dolSee BOND, page 10

months by the Budget Advisory Committee, or BAC, a group of district staffers, trustees, parents and students. Joe White, associate superintendent of business, said the combination of declining property tax revenue, state take-backs and growing student enrollment has created the “perfect storm” for balancing future budgets. “The district is going to have troublesome times over the next three to six years,” he said. “This really is the great California recession, the worst recession since the 1930s,” said Superintendent Barry Groves. In addition to endorsing most of the prioritized list of reductions put forth by the BAC, Groves recommended several options for balancing next year’s budget, including dipping into the district’s reserves, which currently stand at 5 percent. He pointed out that the district made $1.2 million in reductions for this school year, and recommended maintaining those reductions for 2010-11. He said the district’s educaSee MVLA, page 10

three dogs from a single home were taken in all at once. “Mostly it’s because they’ve lost their house,� Stadler said. “They are moving into a rental or in with a relative and there is not room for a pet.� She called the people and their pets in this situation “broken families.� “These pets are as much a relative for that family� as the people are, Stadler said. “It’s like taking grandma and saying, ‘We don’t have room for you.’� She added, “It is hard on parents, kids, animals and us. The emotions run very high.� In one case, a man had to choose between caring for his small dachshund and his own father, who was moving into his home, Stadler said. On Monday the dachshund, named Kobe, was still waiting for someone to take him home, as were dozens of other dogs who looked plaintively toward the courtyard entrance. “They’re just hoping,� Stadler said. “Doesn’t it just break your heart?� Recently the shelter received its first horse, brought in by a couple who could no longer afford to keep it at a ranch. It had an ongoing medical issue and no one wanted it. The husband had lost his job, Stadler said, and “It was really the only option they felt they had.� Stadler said that while trying to find a home for the horse, she called local ranches and discovered a trend: People who suddenly can no longer pay their bills are abandoning the animals, leaving them at the corrals. Inside the Palo Alto shelter there were dozens of dogs and cats, each with a story written and posted on the kennel door by staffers: Sam, a young pit bull terrier, had been brought in by recent immigrants who only spoke Spanish. Staffers learned that they had to return to Mexico and leave the dog behind.

Kobe, a one year old Dachshund mix, was given up for adoption due to his past owner’s financial burden. Right: Banjo is led to his kennel by an animal control officer. MICHELLE LE

Stadler remembers pulling into work one day to see a woman “bawling her eyes out� with two little dachshunds on her lap that she had to leave behind. Her new living situation had forced her to part ways with her beloved dogs. “I’m sure they looked for an alternate solution other than bringing them to us,� Stadler said. Fortunately the dogs were able to find a home together, and the horse found a home with a Northern California “horse rescue� outfit. Stadler and her staff continue to screen applicants to ensure that each animal finds a suitable home. The shelter strives for a 100 percent adoption rate, but euthanizes some animals that have health or behavioral problems. A side note: Watch out for the roosters. Illustrating a related trend at the shelter was a rooster from Mountain View named Fernando, one

of several to show up recently. Stadler said it has become increasingly popular for people to keep chickens in their backyards as a cheap, environmentally friendly source of eggs — but when purchased online, sometimes the chick turns out to be male. And most local cities have ordinances against roosters because of their noisy crowing. V

ing a bar fight in a Castro Street nightclub early Saturday morning which supposedly started after a man was hit on the head with a beer bottle, police say. According to police, the owner of Monte Carlo nightclub, located at 228 Castro Street, flagged down a patrol officer just after 2 a.m. on Saturday, April 3. The owner said a fight had broken out in the bar, and Monte Carlo security personnel had detained several people behind the club who they thought were involved. One 23-year-old man from San Jose reported that he was minding his own business when out of nowhere he was hit in the head with a beer bottle, said police spokesperson Liz Wylie. After the initial blow, the victim fought back, and several others joined in the brawl. Wylie said police took other witness accounts, but the stories varied and they do not know how many people were involved or exactly why the fight started. After talking to witnesses, police arrested Juan Rico, 28, of Oakland, for allegedly hitting the victim with a bottle. Wylie said Rico had scratches on his hand indicating that the bottle likely broke on impact, though she added that there were many broken bottles at the scene. The victim suffered several lacerations to the left side of his face and head. He was transported to a nearby hospital and given stitches before being released. — Kelsey Mesher

Mountain View police say they have a man in custody who punched out an elderly homeless man before taking his wallet last Wednesday night near the CVS store at San Antonio shopping center. Police allege that Menlo Park transient David Harris, 32, punched a 74-year-old Mountain View transient in the back of the head before taking his wallet at 10:30 p.m. on March 31. Witnesses reported that the suspect continued to punch the victim as he lay on the ground before taking his wallet. “They don’t know each other at all,� said police spokesperson Liz Wylie. “This was a random act.� Police say they used witness descriptions of the suspect to find Harris walking in San Antonio Center with blood on him and carrying bloody money. Harris is a transient from the Menlo Park area, Wylie said, and the victim had been staying in the nearby San Antonio Inn. Paramedics found the victim conscious at the CVS store; he was transported to the local hospital and is expected to recover from his injuries. Police say he could not recall the incident. Harris was booked into the Santa Clara County main jail on robbery charges. Wylie said police were still talking to the district attorney’s office about the possibility of additional charges.

city begin studying a new parking fee at Shoreline Park, which council member Laura Macias said could generate $300,000 a year. “We have the potential for significantly increasing revenue” at Shoreline, Macias said. “People are using Shoreline Park completely free. That seems unusual to me.” City staffers had recommended against it because of the difficulty in studying possible impacts on businesses in the park such as Michaels at Shoreline. Kasperzak and council member John Inks opposed the idea. “It would most definitely adversely affect our small businesses there,” said Christina Ferrari, president of Silicon Shores, which runs the lakeside cafe and boat rentals at Shoreline Park. “Paying a $5 entrance fee to get a sandwich would be unrealistic. People would be less likely to use the facility.” City staff had also recommended against looking at revenue from new downtown parking fees because of possible impacts on downtown businesses, but council members Margaret Abe-Koga and Mayor Ronit Bryant disagreed, saying it is common in nearby cities and would encourage people to walk and bike. Rec programs Finding it difficult to continue to heavily subsidize recreation programs, city staffers ranked recreation programs in terms of “community benefit” versus “individual benefit.” Senior and teen programs were largely left out of proposed fee hikes, but youth summer camps and programs targeting adults were chosen to cover 122 percent of operating costs (fee waivers are available for low income people). In the case of Deer Hollow Farm summer camps, which cost the city $107,000 a year, proposed fees were about doubled to create $66,000 in new revenue. New fees for swim programs would create almost $150,000 in new revenue. The proposed recreation fee hikes include, but are not limited to: ■ Los Altos-Mountain View Aquatics Club fee: increases from $0 to $76 an hour ($49,400 in new revenue) ■ Lap swim day pass for residents: increases from $3 to $5 ($47,416 in new revenue) ■ Elementary school camps:

increases from $2.50 to $5.87 an hour ($61,000 in new revenue) ■ Family reservation of barbecue area: increases from $5 to $15 per table ■ Indoor basketball court rental fee: increases from $70 to $111 an hour (various gym rental fee increases total $120,000 a year) ■ Community garden plot: increases from $41 to $135 a year ■ McKelvey ball field rental, with lights: increases from $57.75 to $70 an hour. While city staffers had compared the city’s recreation fees to other cities and found many were “below market rate,” no comparison was made to private recreation providers such as the YMCA. Council member Kasperzak even suggested the city look at having the YMCA run certain recreation programs for the city, as other cities have done during budget cuts.

Performing arts City staff said the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts currently produces enough revenue to cover only 78 percent of its operating costs and is budgeted to receive $844,000 from the city’s general fund this year. The city reports that the top 25 performing arts centers in the country average 72 percent cost recovery. Proposed fees for the MVCPA, totaling a $36,500 annual increase, include: ■ New fees for the purchase of online tickets: increases by 50 cents per ticket and $2 per transaction ■Base fee for a nonprofit theater company to hold a performance: increases from $1,050 to $1,500 for weekends and from $1,350 to $1,800 for weekdays. Forestry, planning and public works In other city departments, proposed fee hikes would produce $40,000 a year for the Forestry Department and $55,000 each for Planning and Public Works. The proposed fees include, but are not limited to: ■New fee for removing heritage trees: increases from $0 to $95 ■ Appeal against heritage tree: increases from $15 to $300 ■ Conditional use permits: increases from $1,929 to $3,858 ■ Child care center conditional use permit: increases from $135 to $1,827 ■ Historic preservation permit: increases from $0 to $544 ■ Sidewalk cafe permit, which See COUNCIL, page 13 APRIL 9, 2010 ■ MOUNTAIN VIEW VOICE ■

tion foundation had recently pledged a donation of $700,000, with a promise to try to give even more next year. He also called it “vital” that Measure A, a bond measure on the June ballot for the construction of new classrooms, passes. The prioritized list put forth by the BAC included a variety of reductions, ranging from cell phone costs to instructional materials to staff development funding, and some cuts for support staff such as coaches. Members of the group said they were intent on shielding students as much as possible from the direct affects of the cuts. Groves said some reductions would only be made for one year, such as $15,000 normally given to Partners for New Generations, a mentoring program helping more than 100 students. Though trustees agreed the cuts were “painful,” principals and district officials said they could continue to operate programs with less. For example, rather than spending money on materials used during freshmen orientation activities, the educators said they would focus on discussions or no-cost games. Or administrators could purchase new generations of textbooks after six years instead of four. “There’s no doubt in my mind that we won’t be as good a district with these cuts,” said trustee Phil Faillace. Several district employees spoke at the meeting in support of their positions. Seth Donnelly, a social studies teacher at Los Altos High School, asked that alternatives be explored before cuts are made to important programs or services. “We should look at voluntary furlough days,” he said. “Some of us would even take voluntary

cuts.” Groves said those options are being considered, but must clear union negotiations before they can be officially included on the proposed list of reductions. No decisions were made at Tuesday’s meeting. Going forward, classified personnel reductions would be negotiated by April 26, and a final budget for 2010-11 put forth in June. V

“The message will be clear. Permanently fix this tax unfairness.” Measure A would not raise property taxes but would extend the current tax rate — previously set to expire in 2024 — to 2030. The money it raises would pay for new classrooms and for “green renovations” at its high schools. Overall, the district does better financially than the elementary school district thanks to higher property values and greater fundraising efforts in Los Altos. V

Lauren Biglow, left, and Sarah Loebner discusses the pressures of achieving in school.

stress. The survey was developed by Girls for Change, a socially minded student group that took on the issue of student stress last school year. “We spent pretty much the whole year talking about stress,� said Judy Prothro, LAHS counselor and an advisor for the group. In partnership with Stanford University, the group put out a survey to 1,400 students asking about their feelings on their school and home experiences, extracurricular and paid activities, school culture, stress and how they felt about the future. Nearly half of the students said they have regular difficulty sleeping. Nearly a third reported sometimes cheating in school, while 57 percent said they felt burned out often or even daily. Over 40 percent reported participating in extracurricular activities because it looked good on a college application. “It validated what we expected,� Prothro said, adding that counselors have seen increasing numbers of students who “hit the wall� or become physically ill from stress. “It’s all driven by the competition for colleges,� said guidance counselor Dafna Tarle. “Kids are doing more and more and more.� Future focus Several students from Girls for Change took precious time out of their lunch period Monday to sit down with the Voice and discuss the results of the survey, and their own personal experiences with stress. “The mindset in general of our community is, ‘What haven’t you done yet? What more can you be doing?� said junior Lau-

ren Biglow. During the single lunch period, the girls talked about signing up for Advanced Placement tests, pulling all-nighters to finish senior research projects and planning for college visits. Two students had to leave early for a meeting — preparation for a twoweek trip with the school choir. “We’re so focused on where we will be,� said junior Anna Bekker, referring to the pressure students feel to prepare for college, get good jobs and build successful, happy family lives. “You’re wondering, ‘When am I going to get there?’� “People don’t know how to just do nothing,� Tarle added. “It’s sad to me to know a 15- or 16-year-old that doesn’t know how to have fun ... to just chill out.� Rewa Bush, a sophomore, said education isn’t enjoyable when the focus is only on memorizing bits of information, passing tests and making a grade, instead of the “joy of learning.� “It’s painful,� she said. “How many kids do you know that like school?� Overcommitted “It’s really easy to over-commit,� Biglow said. “And you don’t know until the middle of the year ... you hit this wall.� By then, she said, it’s too late to back out of activities, classes or other responsibilities: “You feel like you’re letting people down.� Her peers nodded in agreement. “If you’re hitting that limit for the first time you feel like the world is ending,� Biglow said. “You dwell in it.� And that all that pressure leads to feeling isolated, they said. “There are so many people going through it. You’re not alone — but it feels like a lonely place,� Tarle said. Bush said she was most surprised by the survey results indi-

cating that so many students were getting physically ill from stress. “I used to go to a really lowstress school,� Bush said. But at Los Altos High, “By the middle of my freshman year, I started getting headaches.� The stress is making young people outright unhealthy, she said. Tarle and Prothro noted that a number of students have dropped out of traditional classes and turned to independent study because of the pressure. New message The students acknowledged that the pressure of getting into college is not going away. They said the next step, therefore, is to open a discussion on the issue of stress. The girls have formed a new group, called “Challenge Success,� which is their own version of a Stanford group dedicated to informing students, teachers and parents about the effects of stress. Its members are looking specifically at ways to begin changing school culture. Following in the model of Castilleja School in Palo Alto, Challenge Success will hold its first-ever “dialogue night� for students and parents to attend together. The evening will feature skits highlighting how simple interactions, like a parent nagging about grades, can create high pressure situations for students. “The dialogue night is to address those messages that are freaking people out,� Loebner said. She pointed out that while most students feel they need to fit into a specific “box,� in reality most do not. The focus of Challenge Success will be to make it easier to “step out of the box.� “It’s probably way more enjoyable to not be in the box at all,� she said.

The heritage tree fees were met with concern from council members, who said a hit of nearly $100 would prevent some people from removing dangerous trees, while the $300 protest fee would discourage them from protecting healthy old trees. Mayor Bryant applauded the fee on heritage tree removal as a protection for old trees. Kasperzak expressed frustration with the new $544 historic preservation permit, noting the long fight just to have property owners voluntarily apply for historic status for their buildings. City staffers noted that a new state law makes historic status a requirement for some properties. City staff said they had been working with a consultant to find up to $350,000 in untapped Police Department revenue. Police chief Scott Vermeer said those revenues would largely come from higher fines for repeated responses to “false alarms� sent by commercial building alarm systems, higher fees for records requests from other government agencies and higher fees for towed vehicles. The potential police service fees have yet to be presented in detail but were included in the total proposed new revenue of $900,000 to $1.2 million. V

wo things happened last week that got us thinking about the future of mass transit on the Peninsula. First, Caltrain announced that within a year it will have to drastically reduce service due to a continuing budget crisis. Second, a company called Unimodal, based at Moffett Field, gave the Voice a look at its futuristic people-movers: automated pods which glide over an electrified network, and which the company wants to bring to Mountain View. Unimodal’s system, dubbed “SkyTran,” would not replace the aging heavy rail commuter trains operated by Caltrain. But it does seem to offer a viable solution to moving people from a mainline terminal to various destinations, and at a relatively low cost. Unimodal said it can build its system for $10 million a mile, compared to the $100 million-a-mile cost of installing light rail. Better yet, the company says, whatever city agrees to allow the first-ever SkyTran system will get it for free, as investors allegedly are eager to launch a network to demonstrate its abilities. Assuming this is true, Mountain View seems like the perfect location for such a test, given its layout, its high ratio of workers, and the fact that the City Council already has approved the general concept of a so-called personal rapid transit, or PRT, system. For years the city has been searching for a better way to get people from the downtown transit center — site of Caltrain’s busy Mountain View station — to the Shoreline area, where thousands of people come and go, at all hours, due the hightech businesses there. The answer could be Unimodal, which envisions a network from Moffett to Shoreline to downtown Mountain View, possibly continuing on to the San Jose Airport, with several smaller branches where commuters can hop into a waiting pod. But even at its current cost per mile, a proposed 8.5-mile route would be $130 million, money the city obviously does not have. So the question becomes: Will investors really cover that amount, and if so, will the system be worth it? For better or worse, Caltrain’s fate is not moot to this discussion. Many thousands of commuters arrive on its trains every day, coming from San Francisco, San Jose or points between to the downtown station, where they grab a shuttle for Google or some other high-tech employer. Caltrain’s proposed cuts would have a huge impact on people who rely on its current flexibility, such as it is, to get to or from work throughout the day, not to mention baseball games or other activities. But unless Caltrain finds $30 million somewhere, all weekend lines could be eliminated by 2011, and the system would sit idle every midday and late evening during the week. That means more of today’s Caltrain commuters will be forced to take their cars instead — bypassing any fancy new transit system entirely as they clog Shoreline Boulevard on their way to work. For these and other reasons, we sincerely hope Caltrain will not have to wipe out the many crucial services now on its chopping block. To avoid that fate, Mountain View and other cities served by Caltrain should do everything they can to keep it running on its current schedule, seven days a week.





ON THE POSSIBILITY OF CALTRAIN SERVICE CUTS I want good Caltrain service (though I’m not a commuter) but Caltrain cannot operate without subsidies — its fares pay for only 40 percent of its operating costs, according to the article. Multiplying fares by 2.5 will not get to 100 percent of operating costs because fewer people would ride. Cutting costs by reducing service will not solve the problem because there will be fewer riders. Making Caltrain more efficient, e.g. by electrifying the trains, takes even more money, though it might eventually pay for itself in reduced energy costs. Caltrain needs to have its subsidies restored. That may happen in a few years, but doesn’t help today. Caltrain will do what it has to do. I’m sure I will not like it any more than they do. Doug Pearson, a resident of the Blossom Valley neighborhood Let the whole stupid train system fall. Here is a classic example of government waste. We spend jillions on public transportation that very few people use. We are not Europe! Spend on things that Americans need. Forget the train system and put the money in the schools’ math and science programs. David Craig, a resident of the Monta Loma neighborhood Caltrain, like all public transportation, is never going to be 100 percent full or perfect. However, every person on Caltrain takes a car off the road. It increases our green footprint. It

cuts down on overcrowding. It is a practical method of public transportation. It should be (nearly) 100 percent funded by gas taxes. People should be encouraged, by all means possible, to take the train. Our gas tax situation is abysmal. We have some of the lowest gas taxes in the world yet use the most gasoline. Our infrastructure is in poor shape and a small increase in gas taxes could begin paying for repair. How about $2 a gallon state tax as a good beginning? James Thurber, a resident of the Old Mountain View neighborhood Peninsula residents, one of the wealthiest and most ostentatiously “green” populations in the country and the quickest to demand sacrifices from the less enlightened for the sake of the environment, should be packing the trains throughout the day. Fare revenues would then be helping to mitigate Caltrain’s deficit. But let the price of riding the train become uncompetitive with driving, and the cry goes up for more taxation to keep fares low. By design, I’ve lived within five miles of my work for the past 20 years. It required trade-offs, the cost of which I absorbed. I make relatively little money by mid-Peninsula standards, but I pay plenty in taxes. Why should I pay even more in taxes so that someone making $150,000 a year can work in S.F. and live in Mountain View, but not have to pay the cost of the living and working choices they made?

Opened in 2003, Cascal was the brainchild of Don Durante, a Peninsula restaurant veteran, who, for over 30 years, has been involved with everything from steakhouses to fine French dining. Cascal is the zenith of that experience.

Some years back, he noted that his kitchen crews were mostly Hispanic and employee meals were colorful, tasty, simply prepared and delicious. He dreamed of someday opening a restaurant that showcased the history, knowledge and expertise of his Latin staff. It took two years of research for Durante to pull the concept together, culminating in the Castro Street location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked Mountain View because it was multi-ethnic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; filled with people who would appreciate the food,â&#x20AC;? said Durante. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The space had a European flair, lots of glass, high ceilings, set back Continued on next page

The decor is festive — even the dishes are flamboyant oranges, reds, blues, yellows and greens. The bare wood tabletops are highlighted with bright hued linens. Overhead are slow rotating ceiling fans. The walls are painted lime green, spicy pumpkin, vermilion red, maize yellow and ocean turquoise. Soon after being shown to our table, a plate of house-made pan bread was delivered. The bread resembled focaccia but was crusti-

er and denser. The accompanying dipping sauce of olive oil, lime juice, green onion, parsley, cilantro, garlic, cumin, mint and likely a half dozen other ingredients was so tantalizing, it took serious willpower not to make a meal of just bread and oil. Cascal’s Spanish tapas sampler ($23) was terrific in variety, quality and price. There were at least two morsels of everything — seafood, salads, meats, dates and tapenades — on the platter. A complete meal was washed down with a pitcher of white sangria ($15) and we departed happy as larks. Tapas bars are numerous in

generally too time consuming for home preparation. Cascal offers an excellent assortment at a great price. In addition to tapas, there are other small plate offerings. Roasted chile relleno ($8.50) featured a tantalizing roasted poblano chile with a three-cheese filling accented with a not-too-hot piquillo pepper and goat cheese sauce. Brazilian moqueca ($8) was a scrumptious fresh Dungeness crab, shrimp, orange, and coconut milk soup. The generous portion was loaded with seafood, the broth lip-smacking good. Queso fundido ($8.50) was a stringy, warm, Oaxacan cheese and smoked mushroom fondue with grilled poblano chiles. A sheaf of rolled warm corn tortillas accompanied. Beef short rib adobo ($13) was a fork-tender braised beef short rib, accompanied with a crisp red onion-cilantro salad and a delightful fresh corn arepa (corncake). The potato gratin ($6.50) was silky layers of potatoes, poblano chiles and spices topped with crusty parmesan. The sizzling shrimp ($12.50) were mouth-watering in a bath of olive oil, garlic, piquant chile arbol and fresh lime. Paella, the famous dish of Valencia, is served in cafes, restaurants and street markets throughout Spain. Cascal has four versions: I tried the Paella Cascal (small $22, large $41). The small platter proved to be huge, loaded with saffron rice, chicken, pork, chorizo sausage, shrimp, mussels, clams, smoked paprika soffritto (garlic, onion, bell peppers), peas and piquillo peppers. The dish was just moist enough, suggestive, slightly spicy, robust and irresistible. Besides the small plates and tapas, Cascal offers a few larger plates as well. Puerco Cubano en mojo ($21) was marinated (mojo is a Cuban marinade) slow-roasted pork shoulder with velvety Cuban black beans, steamed rice and sweet potato-plantain mash. The pork was so tender it fell apart with my mere gaze. The mouthwatering wild salmon filet ($24.50), paprika-crusted, was served with a lively roasted tomato black olive relish and sweet potato gnocchi in saffron sauce. The filet was thick, pink and fleshy. No let down with desserts either. From tres leche cake to spiced bread pudding (both $7.50) to the pumpkin cheesecake ($7.75), all are fresh, unusual and sublime. There is live Latin music on weekends, but the place is packed every day of the week, lunch and dinner.

When did we stop picking each other up at the airport?” Catherine (Julianne Moore) asks of husband David (Liam Neeson) in “Chloe,” the latest film by Atom Egoyan (“The Sweet Hereafter”). Catherine is a gynecologist, David a music professor; they live with their teenaged son Michael (Max Thieriot) in a spectacular modern house in Toronto, where the action is set. In the opening scene, Catherine has not picked David up from the airport — he’s been to a conference in New York — because she’s throwing him a lavish surprise birthday party. But David misses his flight and the party. Catherine, finding a text message (“Thanks for last night”) from a woman on his phone, is suspicious. Has David been unfaithful? How better to test her suspicions than to hire a hooker to tempt him and report back to her? She finds a willing helper in big-eyed, lush-lipped Chloe (Amanda Seyfried), whom she meets in a restaurant ladies’ room. Rated R for strong sexual content, language, nudity and graphic dialogue. — R.P.

(Century 16, Century 20) Long before the Pegasus turns up in a raven hue, the new remake of 1981’s “Clash of the Titans” is evidently a horse of a different color: darker, that is. It’s a gamble that could have paid off with a sharper script, but the three screenwriters involved haven’t changed the original that much: “Titans” is still pretty dimwitted and incoherent. The difference now is that it’s lost its camp appeal. The remake emphasizes the notion of man going to war with the gods, touching on the philosophical notion that the gods need human worship to thrive and, perhaps, survive. Rated PG-13 for fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief sensuality. One hour, 46 minutes. — P.C.


(Aquarius) The Book of Kells, the 8thcentury volume of the New Testament gospels, is what the film is about. Mostly hand-drawn, the animation pulls you in so far that the story hardly matters. But it’s a charming story. Brendan (voice of Evan McGuire) is a boy monk living at the monastery of Kells. His uncle, the Abbot (Brendan Gleeson), is intent on building a wall around the abbey to fortify it against marauding Vikings. Brendan, on the other hand, prefers working with Father Aidan, an old monk who has sought shelter at the monastery, bringing with him an unfinished but marvelous book. When Brendan ventures into the forest to find the berries Aidan needs for making ink, he meets Aisling (Christen Mooney), a helpful forest sprite, and an array of wolves and monsters. Not rated. One hour, 15 minutes. — R.P.
