Big in Japan: Obon festival celebrates culture By Emily Hamilton

T

he Mountain View Buddhist Temple is holding their 58th annual Obon Festival and Bazaar this weekend. The festivities will take place on Saturday, July 17, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sunday, July 18, from 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The annual mid-summer holiday honors those who have passed away. A central part of the celebration is the dance. Four hundred

dancers will “Dance for Joy” in the Bon Odori ritual dance in appreciation of the deceased at 7 p.m. on Sunday. In addition to the dancing, guests at the festival will find a variety of activities. There will be an array of Japanese foods to enjoy, including sushi, tempura and udon, along with American treats like shaved ice. In the temple’s cultural room, there will be an exhibit of miniature Bonsai trees, Ikebana flower arrange-

ments, Kimekomi dolls and other traditional art. There will activities for children, including origami folding, hachi maki headband stamping and Taiko drumming. There will be professional Taiko performances at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and at 4 p.m. on Sunday. There will also be performances by the Obon Jazz Quartet and the San Jose Chidori Band.

Moffett airfield up for grabs? By Daniel DeBolt

ongresswoman Anna Eshoo is concerned about the potential for increased use of the runway at Moffett Federal Airfield as NASA considers getting rid of “underutilized assets.” While the owner of the for-

mer naval airfield, NASA Ames Research Center, is largely mum on the issue, Eshoo’s spokesperson Ben Bradford confirmed that the congresswoman has been talking to NASA about the possibility that the agency would relinquish control of the airfield. Bradford said that Eshoo opposes such a move,

which some fear would increase air traffic at Moffett Field — an issue that’s been controversial in the past. Eshoo was not available to comment on the issue further. In an e-mail, NASA Ames spokesperson Michael Mewhinney See MOFFETT, page 10

e may have lost a battle to sell medical marijuana in Mountain View, but Matt Lucero says he’s been inspired to run for City Council this fall as a champion for the “blue collar, lower-class residents of Mountain View.” “If they thought I was a problem from the other side of the podium, wait until they see me sitting next to them,” Lucero said of the City Council. While Lucero had yet to submit the necessary forms, he said Monday that he was “absolutely” going to run. In order to qualify as a council candidate, he plans to become a Mountain View resident by moving into an apartment on Castro Street “right down the street form City Hall so I can keep an eye on them,” he laughed. He plans to rent out his Campbell home to his daughter. “It was not my idea,” Lucero said Monday, saying his Mountain View customers pushed him to do it. “Scores, if not hundreds ask me to do this,” he said. Lucero said he plans to use the former location of his dispensary, Buddy’s Cannabis Patient Collective, as campaign headquarters. The operation moved from the Bayshore Parkway location on July 7 to Sunnyvale after a judge upheld Mountain View’s temporary ban on pot clubs. Sunnyvale has a similar ban. Lucero said his desire to run “has nothing to do with Buddy’s Cannabis in Mountain View” and that he would abstain from related discussions and votes. “I don’t need to sit on the City Council to do the Buddy’s thing.” The theme of his campaign, he said, is “throw the bums out.” “I don’t like the way that City Council treats its people,” Lucero said, noting the way the

council decided to shut down his dispensary even though not one resident opposed the operation in City Council meetings. “There is a strong dislike of the City Council by blue collar, lower class residents of Mountain View.” A Web site and position statements are in the works, but Lucero said he is still “getting up to speed” on a lot of issues. Among the complaints he’s gotten from his customers include “misuse of money, oppression and apathy” on the part of the city and City Council. Lucero, a millionaire and former corporate attorney for large tech companies, said he was not yet sure about whether to commit See LUCERO, page 8

Yelling and threats alleged in NASA Ames dust-up

Summer jobs with substance TEENS EARN MONEY, LEARN SKILLS THROUGH NOVA PROGRAM

By Daniel DeBolt

L

ast month an eyebrow-raising e-mail was sent out to NASA Ames Research Center’s 2,500 employees by Ames director S. Pete Worden, who reminded everyone that management should not interfere with union activities. According to the vague explanation in the e-mail, the message was required in a settlement agreement for “an unfair labor practice charge filed by the Ames Federal Employees Union,” the June 3 e-mail stated. It turns out that the “unfair labor practice” involved Worden himself, along with his number two, deputy director Lewis Braxton III. According to documents filed with the Federal Labor Relations Authority, Braxton is alleged to have verbally “assaulted” AFEU president Leland Stone while Worden was present at an August 2009 meeting. The incident took place immediately after Stone sent an e-mail to union members which disparaged Ames management and boasted about the union’s accomplishments. The e-mail said to have incited the conflict read, in part, that “while Ames management is all a-twitter with the International Space University, Singularity University, new green office building construction, Zeppelins, new cafes in the research park, cheap beer at the golf course, and other peripheral activities, your union has prioritized its efforts on core issues crucial for maintaining Ames as a premiere R&D center and NASA as America’s aerospace agency.” According to the charge filed by the AFEU, the meeting about those remarks flared up to the point that “Mr. Braxton charged across the room, lunged at Dr. Stone, and proceeded to scream and yell at him at the top of his lungs with his face within about 1 inch of Dr. Stone’s face while shaking his finger in Dr. Stone’s face about 1 inch from his eye. The assault lasted about half a minute.” The description goes on to say that director Worden watched and said nothing during Braxton’s alleged tirade, but allegedly joined Braxton in making “vague verbal threats that the Union could See AMES, page 8

aughter and the sound of scampering feet fill the courtyard at the Community School of Music and Arts. Camp is letting out and Cassandra Magaña is about to head home after a day working as a teacher’s aide. She just needs to collect her paycheck first. For Cassandra, a 15-year-old Mountain View High School student, the excitement of payday is tempered by the realization of how fortunate she is to have this job. With millions of Americans out of work and state budgets in the red, teens are running up against two formidable obstacles as they search for jobs: stiff competition from adults desperate for any kind of employment, and a shrinking number of recreation programs, the go-to summer job for many high school students. As a result, many summering teens and college students have turned to unpaid internships to stay occupied; others have held out upturned palms to mom and dad for movie tickets or ice cream. However, Cassandra is one of 20 Mountain View teens who has found work through a summer jobs program run by Nova, a Sunnyvale-based nonprofit employment and training agency. Using federal and state subsidies, Nova is helping the Community School of Music and Arts, along with many other local organizations, pay teens like Cassandra. The hope is that employers will benefit from the extra help and that teens will earn a little money while gaining valuable workplace experience. “I really like it,” Cassandra says of her job at the summer camp program, where she helps with classroom set-up, child supervision and various activities. She found out about the See NOVA, page 6

effry Walker, executive director for the Community School of Music and Arts, is leaving his position after 3 1/2 years. Walker, who said in a press release that it was simply time for him to move on, plans to continue advocating for music and arts programs in public schools. “He accomplished what he wanted to do here,” said Evy Schiffman, marketing and communications director for CSMA. “When I arrived at CSMA, my goal was to work ... to expand the school’s core mission of providing arts for all,” Walker said. He added that during his time at CSMA he learned a great deal about the importance of getting music and art programs in public schools. CSMA offers financial aid to economically disadvantaged students and takes its programs to local public schools in the hopes of bringing art and music education to as many as people as possible.

No one had yet pulled the necessary papers to challenge incumbents Jac Siegel, Ronit Bryant and Margaret Abe-Koga as of Tuesday, according to acting city clerk Wanda Wong. Potential candidates can apply between July 12 and August 6. Lucero also said Tuesday that he has agreed to drop the lawsuit against the city and City Attorney Jannie Quinn that were part of his strategy to keep Buddy’s open in Mountain View. Quinn said the city has spent $66,000 on outside attorneys to handle the court battle with Buddy’s. V

Janice Fried, the Ames director of human capital, and Dr. David Schwenke, AFEU’s first vice president. In brief e-mails about the incident to the Voice this week, both Dr. Stone and Ames management (speaking through public affairs) tried to put the incident behind them, with Stone calling the incident “old news.� Both sides acknowledged that Worden’s e-mail, the only requirement in the settlement agreement, was appropriate. It read in part that “intimidation, threat, or coercion� of union members is not allowed under the union’s labor agreement, including “conferring any benefit (such as appointment, promotion, compensation, settlement, or redress), or effecting or threatening to effect any reprisal (such as deprivation of appointment, promotion, or compensation).� “Ames management believes that the allegations made in the complaint have already been addressed and settled, and Ames unequivocally stands by the sentiments in the Centerwide statement,� wrote communications director Delores Beasley in an e-mail. “The matter you refer to in the attachment is nearly a year old,� Stone told the Voice in an e-mail. “The events were investigated by the Federal Labor Relations Authority.

vale’s temporary dispensary ban and operating without permits, said operator Matt Lucero. If the decides to prosecute, Buddy’s faces up to $1,500 in fines for every day the city decides to cite the dispensary, along with up to six months in prison, said Sunnyvale spokesperson John Pilger, who added that council members would be meeting in closed session shortly to discuss the matter. “The bottom line is the infractions of the municipal code and the misdemeanor violations can easily start adding up to a significant impact,” Pilger said. “They are designed to convey a message they are violating the law.” It is unclear whether fines alone would force Buddy’s to close. A nearby dispensary called Angel’s Care is operating despite a $1,000 a day fine form the City of Santa Clara, Lucero said. “I’m pleading with these guys to let us stay,” Lucero said. “If they get aggressive with us, we may be going to another city bordering Mountain View, maybe Los Altos, maybe East Palo Alto. Some city on the peninsula is going to allow us to stay. In the meantime, we can’t close down. We’re helping a lot of people.” Buddy’s was forced out of Moun-

tain View on July 7 under the city’s temporary ban on medical marijuana dispensaries and reopened two days later in Sunnyvale, despite a similar ban there. Buddy’s new address is about five miles outside of Mountain View in an industrial neighborhood near Highway 237 at 1283 Old Mountain View Alviso Road. “I will tell you that we are very aware there is a violation,” of the city’s ban, Pilger said of Sunnyvale’s city government. “We’re not going to just let it stand. We will take whatever action we need to.” Judge Joseph Huber ordered Buddy’s to close its previous location on Bayshore Parkway in Mountain View by July 7 after the city requested a temporary injunction against the shop. Lucero, a wealthy former corporate attorney, had told the Voice in June that Buddy’s was moving to a “bigger and better” undisclosed San Jose location. “It would’ve been a lot easier and less risky for us to relocate to San Jose, but there’s no way that we’re giving up on you guys!” read a Craigslist ad for Buddy’s Sunnyvale location posted July 12. Lucero said moving to San Jose would mean leaving numerous sick Mountain View residents without a dispensary within a reasonable distance. Lucero claims

Former Mountain View planner dies in motorcycle crash By Daniel DeBolt

rad Eckhardt, a Mountain View city planner for 17 years before leaving in 2002, was killed on July 4 after losing control of his motorcycle in Northern San Diego County. At 10:30 a.m., Eckhardt, 48, lost control of his 1969 Yamaha RD350 on a rural two-lane road and slid in front of a Dodge Ram pickup truck towing a horse trailer, according to news reports. The truck was unable to stop in time and paramedics were unable to revive him at the scene. A group of Mountain View city planners who fondly remembered Eckhardt traveled to his funeral services over the weekend in Temecula, including Planthat Buddy’s now has 1,000 members. Like Mountain View, the Sunnyvale City Council has placed a temporary ban on medical mari-

ning Director Randy Tsuda, who called Eckhardt a good friend with a “wonderful sense of humor” and a calm, patient demeanor. “He loved his three kids and loved his wife,” Tsuda said. Eckhardt was planning director for the city of Perris which earned several planning awards during his tenure there. Perris city staff described him as “unflappable” and “hugely popular” in article on that city’s Web site. “Brad Eckhardt was part of our planning team that has taken Perris to the next level,” said Perris City Councilman Mark Yarbrough. “His loss is devastating. I keep thinking this is just a bad dream. I am numb right now.” Born in Redwood City, Eckhardt got his feet wet in planjuana dispensaries in order to take time to study whether to allow medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. The Sunnyvale City Council recently voted to extend

ning and spent the bulk of his career in Mountain View. Tsuda recalled that Eckhardt was an expert in complex environmental law and made significant contributions to the city’s development of the buildings on city property that are now headquarters for Google. In Perris, Eckhardt was particularly proud of what he called “making the extraordinary commonplace” by helping earn Perris the distinction of being home to the world’s largest green building, the 1.3 million square-foot Hanes Brands Distribution Center, the city reports. In recognition of his work, the city of Perris has set up a memorial scholarship fund in Eckhardt’s name for Inland Empire planning students. V

said NASA Ames and much of the federal government is looking at ways to downsize. “The President is ordering the reduction of the federal footprint (property holdings, including Moffett Field) with metrics (measurements to chart progress) until the year 2055,� Mewhinney wrote. “In concert with the anticipated executive order, NASA is studying all underutilized assets for potential reductions.� Offloading the airfield could save

cash-strapped Ames millions of dollars. In recent years, the agency has asked the community to tolerate special and sometimes controversial airfield-use deals in order for Ames to raise the $7 million a year it costs to operate and maintain the airfield. One such moneymaker allows Google’s founders to fly private jets in and out, while other non-government planes are not allowed. The airfield is also used by local police, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Air National Guard, Lockheed and NASA, and several other agencies. Mewhinney added that it was

“premature� to say whether or not the airfield would be on the list of “underutilized assets� at Ames. But that didn’t stop members of Moffett’s Restoration Advisory Board from discussing the issue after last week’s meeting. One member said Ames could “surplus� the property, which means a non-federal agency could take control of the airfield, such as Santa Clara County’s Airports Department. Another said Ames could simply “excess� it, which means another federal agency, such as the Air National Guard, could take control.

County airports director Carl Honaker said there is no longer any real basis for fears that the county would use Moffett for air cargo flights, which the Mountain View City Council strongly opposed in the late 1990s. With manufacturing largely gone from Silicon Valley, the case for air cargo is dead, he said. Honaker was the last chief officer at Moffett in 1994 when it ceased to be a Naval Air Station. A likely new use for Moffett’s airfield, Honaker said, is increased use by private jets owned by Silicon Valley’s companies and

moguls, including several that are now owned by Google (separate from the planes owned by Google executives) to transport Google employees around the globe. “Moffett could be perfect for that,� Honaker said. A likely obstacle to the airfield’s financial solvency, RAB members said, is the limit of 25,000 flights a year imposed by the environmental impact study for the planned NASA Ames Research Park. In comparison, Palo Alto’s county airport has seen as many as 250,000 flights a year during its busiest years, Honaker said. V

Two new mini-parks to be constructed soon By Daniel DeBolt

I

t was a good day for parks in Mountain View as the City Council on June 29 approved a design for one on Del Medio Avenue and cleared a path for another by approving the demolition of several vacant homes on Mariposa Avenue. With Tuesday’s approval, construction is now scheduled to commence on the .35-acre Del Medio Park in early 2011. Conceptual plans include an adult fitness area, a play structure and a large grass area. Apartments buildings on the site have already been demolished. City staff report that neighbors have been completely supportive of the conceptual design, which will be completed in detail by the end of the year. The .6-acre Mariposa Park, which bridges Mariposa Avenue with the

HANGAR ONE

end of West Dana Street, has been more controversial, delaying the project. Neighbors initially supported a plan with the play structure at the front of the park along Mariposa, but a growing number of neighbors would like to see the play area trade places with a grassy area in the rear of the park. The Parks and Recreation Commission disagreed as well, all of which has forced the city to recommend that

another $25,000 be spent to consider a redesign of the park. Some neighbors were initially opposed to the demolition of the older homes on the site, which includes two single-family homes, three cottages and a triplex. However, neighbors did not oppose the council’s decision to demolish the buildings Tuesday at a cost to the city of $190,000. Both parks will be funded by park fees paid by housing developers. The design and construction cost of the parks is $1.3 million for Mariposa Park and $1.1 million for Del Medio Park.

Deconstruction of Hangar One has been delayed been delayed a few months, with interior demolition to begin in September and removal of the hangar’s skin beginning in the spring to be completed by fall 2011. AMEC Environmental’s president, Mike Schulz, was given a tour of Hangar One recently by historians, along with several RAB members. “It’s pretty fascinating.” Schulz said, pausing during a presentation. “I enjoyed that tour.” In an e-mail after the meeting, founding Moffett Field Historical Society board member Bill Wissel lamented the loss of Hangar One as many know it. “Moffett Field was the most sophisticated rigid airship base ever built,” Wissel said. “The zeppelin sheds in Germany, the British hangars at Cardington, even the U.S. hangars at Lakehurst and Akron, everything that was learned from all of those structures was incorporated in to the facilities at Moffett Field. “Right now, Moffett is also the most “untouched” airship base in the world. All of the zeppelin hangars in Germany are gone. Lakehurst has been modified; even Akron has had a lot of changes. But Hangar One at Moffett and Shenandoah Plaza represent the most unspoiled lighter-than-air complex left standing. It’s almost like a time capsule.

Simitian puts rail project on deadline

W

ith state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, adding his voice to the growing criticism of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, challenges to the huge project from Peninsula cities north of Mountain View are gaining credibility. Although the City Council at first welcomed high-speed rail, some members believe they could have gained clout with the authority by following the lead of Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton and two other northern cities into the Peninsula Cities Consortium. Now, although rail critics from those cities often are referred to as NIMBY (not in my backyard) opponents because the planned route would impact many of their residents who live along the rail corridor, recent glitches in the authority’s ridership claims and oversight ability have caught Mr. Simitian’s attention. He said last week that these and other problems reflect “an unfortunate trend that needs to be turned around.� He and his colleagues have decided to give the authority until Feb. 1 to present a list of ways to remedy the identified problems or risk losing some state funding for the estimated $43 billion rail link between San Francisco and Los Angeles, he said. Earlier in the week the consortium (Atherton, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Burlingame and Belmont) issued a statement that said the authority has “an enormous credibility problem� after an independent review uncovered problems in the ridership projections. The statement from the consortium’s chair, Menlo Park Mayor Rich Cline, is highly critical of the authority, citing mistakes found by the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, a professional group commissioned by the state Legislature. Only with a high number of riders can the authority justify the huge construction costs of the project. And that wasn’t all from Mr. Cline, who also noted recent critical reports from the Office of the State Auditor and the Legislative Analysts Office, and he challenged the authority’s assertion that when built, the system would be financially self-sustaining. The consortium also is concerned that the “key problems may not be resolved because of the intense pressure being exerted by the authority’s desire to qualify for federal stimulus funding.� Construction must begin by September 2012 on the San Francisco to San Jose segment to qualify California for a $2.25 billion grant. Overall, the authority hopes to get about $17 billion in federal grants, although only $2.25 billion has been committed so far. Looking ahead, Mr. Cline and the consortium are concerned that “there is no stated plan for paying to operate high-speed rail once it is built, and we fear local taxpayers may be left holding the bag.� Given the High Speed Rail Authority’s lackluster performance so far, Mountain View, as well as the entire state, should be worried about the ability of the authority to manage and build this multibillion-dollar project on time and on budget. City leaders should be concerned about the project’s impact around the transit center, Central Expressway and to the homes and businesses near the rail corridor. Mayor Ronit Bryant now attends consortium meetings on an informal basis, but maybe it is time for Mountain View to reconsider its reluctance to join this group, which is simply making sure that the rail authority keeps its promises and does all it can to minimize the impact on all Peninsula cities.

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

CALTRAIN NEEDS FINANCIAL SUPPORT As a user of Caltrain, I am very concerned and disappointed about the lack of commitment by the three counties (San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara) which are not supporting Caltrain’s budget needs. I hope the Joint Powers Board, which oversees Caltrain, will rise to the challenge and pursue a dedicated source of funding much like those supporting other transit systems. Caltrain is the only system that I know that does not. I think it is time to set up a special district use tax to really insure the viability of Caltrain and the continued mobility of commuters on the San Francisco Peninsula. A reduction in service will not serve any useful purpose in the long term, but drive more people away from using Caltrain and making our freeways more congested. While I think electrification is an important element in making Caltrain run more efficiently and effectively, one should not wait until that conversion. I think we must lay the ground work today to bring Caltrain under one fullyfunded jurisdiction. Matthew Young Anna Avenue

GOLF COURSE ARTICLES FORGET RATE-HIKE How absurd! An entire article and main editorial in the July 2 edition of the Voice discussed the financial situation at the golf course but nowhere was there a mention of raising fees. The city is raising fees on most city recreation next year, why not the golf course? Regardless of the arguments pro and con, it at least needs to be discussed. Ignoring the option completely is like not talking about the elephant in the room. Sally Ahnger Yale Drive

SHORELINE INSPECTOR UPSETS FAMILY On July 4th we went to Shoreline Amphitheater for the fireworks concert. Our family has been there couple of times, but this time we invited our friends who were visiting for summer. To get a nice lawn spot we got there four hours early, so we were at the very front of the line. See LETTERS, page 14

When the gate was finally opened the lady who was inspecting bags told us icebox containers and thermoses are not allowed. Luckily we didn’t have iceboxes since that was written on the Web page, but I had three thermoses with coffee. She said, “I am not touching your stuff. You open them and dump them out and just show me the inside to check if it’s empty.

Then you are free to bring them in. You can buy some coffee inside of the theater.� I was hesitating but she was very firm. It was a hassle, but rules are rules. So I did pour everything out onto the tree next us and showed her they were empty. Later when we were sitting on the lawn waiting for the concert, we had to watch so many other families enjoying hot coffee and tea from their thermoses, cold fruits and drinks from their iceboxes. I really tried not to notice them, but there were way too many ther-

moses and iceboxes all around. I am willing to accept the rules. But I think they have to be fair. Even we were celebrating July 4th! My visitor friend simply couldn’t resist saying: “What a great way of celebrating American justice and independence, experiencing this unfairness.� Jung Yoon

at the park and at Cuesta Annex. The water district proposes to build a first-class baseball facility at McKelvey to replace the present ball fields. However, if a flood basin is to be built, the city should pause and do some proper planning for McKelvey Park from the starting point of an empty lot, a bare ground basin. McKelvey Park is designated as the neighborhood park serving the St. Francis Acres neighborhood and the Castro-MiramonteEl Camino Triangle. A neighborhood park should have a tot lot, swings, picnic tables and lawns. Of these amenities, McKelvey Park only has grass lawns occupied by baseball diamonds. McKelvey Park has been a compromise, a mixed-use park serving both as a neighborhood park and as the city’s Little League fields. The water district’s proposal is overkill for a neighborhood park. Instead, it will upgrade McKelvey Park into a regional baseball facility for outside baseball leagues. The grass fields will be replaced with artificial turf. We will lose our neighborhood park. If McKelvey Park is dug out for a flood basin, it will be bare, undeveloped ground. The City Council and the Parks and Recreation Commission should take the opportunity to plan from scratch a proper neighborhood park along the lines of what is proposed for Mariposa Park. McKelvey Park is big enough that there would still be room for a Mountain View Little League ballfield. I have heard that the city has plans to build a large baseball complex in the North Bayshore. That would be the place to build the first-class baseball facility for the leagues. That would be the place to shift some of the inter-city baseball activity from McKelvey Park to rebalance its use toward a true neighborhood park. The Santa Clara Valley Water District is simply taking what it sees as the path of least resistance with its proposed upgrade to the ballfields. They don’t care what is built at McKelvey. It is up to the City Council and the Parks and Recreation Commission to do the proper planning and tell the water district what the city wants for McKelvey Park. Gene Lee Ernestine Lane

BASIN WILL RUIN CITY’S LAST NATURAL SPACE

Register online at www.tourdemenlo.com 14

â–  MOUNTAIN VIEW VOICE â–  JULY 16, 2010

In a July 9 letter about Cuesta Annex, Kevin McBride speaks for no one but himself. He frequently claims to represent hundreds of local citizens from the so-called “Mountain View Save Open Space,� which is an email list and not a bona fide commu-

nity organization. I do not live next to the Annex but my home is not far away and I walk there frequently. I love the Annex just the way it is, so I am opposed to the flood basin and to the commercial building misleadingly identified as a history museum. I believe the City Council is making a grave mistake in developing the last piece of natural open space in Mountain View. Although voters approved the “Clean, Safe Creeks� bond measure in 2000, the Grand Jury Report of 2008-2009 found that “while the District’s marketing tactics may be legal, they do not engender trust and are not transparent.� In other words, Measure B was misrepresented to the public by the Santa Clara Valley Water District and would probably not have passed if it had been honestly presented. I too have read the environmental impact report and the response to comments. With a background in zoology and environmental sciences, I believe I am well qualified to review this document critically, and found it to be inadequate and incomplete. Nevertheless, the EIR was given final approval by the Water District on June 17, despite overwhelming opposition from attending members of the public. Their actions show the board’s contempt for public concern. The history museum and the flood detention basin are not unrelated but are in fact, inextricably linked. Both the Cuesta Park Annex Master Plan and the Mountain View Historical Society website show a clear relationship between the flood basin and the museum. In fact, the flood basin appears designed to enhance the appearance of the museum. Undoubtedly many heritage trees will be lost in the Annex and in the adjacent parking lot, if this proposal goes ahead. (Conveniently, the council plans to raise the cost of heritage tree appeal to $50 per tree.) Wildlife will inevitably be killed although not, by definition, “protected� wildlife. The Annex is treasured because it is natural. Developing it into a “natural-looking� (i.e. fake) creek bed, and an extension of the manicured Cuesta Park, will destroy its very essence. If the council is serious about getting the public involved, let them clearly display their plans in the Annex where everyone with an interest can see them. However, if you want a beautiful vision, visit the Annex now. The risk of flood is miniscule. This is all about money — the cost of flood insurance and the potential for depressed property values in the flood zone. Christine Crosby Woodleaf Way

Life in a fishbowl

an Jose’s Mineta Airport has that new airport smell. The new terminal has shiny floors, a new Peet’s coffee shop and the usual gates through which travelers come and go. But the terminal is also a museum, where artwork almost becomes part of the architecture. A fish tank with cameras and screens that resemble a flight information display nearly blends in with the airport decor — nearly. The large metal structure between gates 25 and 26 catches passengers’ eyes. Some are drawn to the fish, without always noticing themselves on display. “People just love fish,” says Shona Kitchen, a Mountain View resident and co-designer of the piece. “They don’t know you’re part of the project.” Kitchen co-designed the piece — called “Dreaming F.I.D.S.” — with Los Angeles-based artist Ben Hooker. “The concept was to bring an obvious infrastructure — surveillance — together with something natural,” Kitchen says. Kitchen’s work as an artist — or, as she says, a “designer” — has largely centered on the relationship between technology and nature. “I love machines, I love technology, but I love nature as well,” Kitchen says. “I try to find a way to celebrate both.”

Part of this task is transforming the way people see technology. “A lot of people see technology as negative,” Kitchen says. “I look at a negative aspect of man-made environment and find ways to make people think these things are positive.” For the “Dreaming F.I.D.S.” project, Kitchen focused on the technology of surveillance, a system that is prevalent in airports. “Surveillance software is a piece of art,” she says. “Hopefully it (the installation) will make people see surveillance as a more playful thing.” “Dreaming F.I.D.S.” was selected to be in the new terminal for at least two years, but it may become a permanent piece, Kitchen says. She describes the piece as “very site-specific.” The name, which stands for “Dreaming Flight Information Display System,” ties together some vital elements of the work. “The dreaming is surveillance that’s gone more dreamy and playful,” Kitchen says. The three screens, which are actually within the fish tank, operate on three programs. The first, tracking, displays images of fish that swim in front of the cameras. The second is the processing mode that identifies fish exhibiting suspicious behavior and isolates them on the screen. Mode three is dreaming, in which the screens depict abstract flight information displays. “This becomes a microcosm of

the airport itself,” Kitchen says. A fascinating aspect of the airport display is the public interaction with the piece. Kitchen says she’s heard all kinds of comments about the piece. “With public art, what’s great is people coming up with their own deciphering,” she says. “You can’t ... expect people to react the same way.” The piece weighs about 1,500 pounds and will require weekly maintenance for the fish. The fish will also be changed eventually, once they determine the best species that will swim around the middle of the tank. Kitchen says that after all the work installing the piece, she has grown attached to the fish. “There have been an initial couple of deaths and I felt so guilty,” she says. The piece came together as a collaboration from several sides, including Kitchen’s “great programmer” in Seattle. She says that her project manager, Mary Rubin of the San Jose Public Art Program, was instrumental to the project’s success. During the piece’s tenure at the airport, Kitchen will continue to check in and gather public feedback about the piece. She hopes that it will present a different perspective to viewers. “It’s accepting the consequences that technology has created,” Kitchen says. “It’s finding positiveness in something seen as negative.” V

Pizza for a small planet GOURMET TOPPINGS AND A CALIFORNIA-VEGGIE VIBE DISTINGUISH ZPIZZA By Monica Hayde Schreiber

I

The Napoli pizza at ZPizza on Castro Street includes homemade roasted garlic sauce, fresh tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella cheese.

n the history of mankind, there have emerged few culinary concoctions that can rival the perfection of pizza. An entire meal condensed into a weighty wedge of baked dough, sauce, cheese and toppings. Orange grease trickles down your hand and lactose courses through your veins as four kinds of animal protein combine in gooey deliciousness. But what if you could get the satisfaction of pizza without some of the guilt? What if a pizza dinner didn’t have to remind you of long-ago dorm room study sessions? What if

you’re a member of PETA? Those are some the questions Sid Fanarof was asking himself back in the mid-1980s. Determined to inject a dose of California consciousness into the pizza experience, the Laguna Beach resident founded ZPizza in 1986. He started franchising in 1999. ZPizza has since expanded to hundreds of locations across the United States, with more than 50 in California. Mexico is home to several ZPizzas and if you ever find yourself craving, say, a chicken curry and yam pizza rustica while in Continued on next page

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, you’ll find four outposts there. The local ZPizza, owned by Mountain View resident Linda Su, has been serving pizza, salads, sandwiches and pasta on Castro Street for a little over two years. The simple, counter-service restaurant prepares slender pizzas with fresh, additive-free ingredients, a number of vegetarian and vegan toppings, and a whole wheat or gluten-free crust if you desire. Of course, they have all the requisite nouvelle-California-Mediterranean ingredients you’d expect: arugula, artichoke hearts, pine nuts, roasted eggplant, gorgonzola, truffle oil and the like. But have no fear, traditionalists. They’ve got you covered, too. Pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, ham, salami, anchovies — they’re all on the menu. But even some of the standard fixings take on the guise of healthier, more politically correct fare. The pepperoni is lowfat and MSG-free, the tomato sauce is certified organic, and the mozzarella is made from hormone-free milk. The franchise’s popularity can only be attributed to the fresh, flavorful food as the

atmosphere, at least that of our local ZPizza, hews toward “corporate cafeteria.” The place feels like, well, a franchise with stark lighting and a sterile decor that only a home office could create. But the food is good. A large pear and gorgonzola salad ($8.50) provided generous helpings to three adults. The only way that this now-iconic salad doesn’t work is if the balsamic dressing is too overpowering or the pears unripe. ZPizza’s version satisfied on all fronts. The Greek salad ($5.95; $8:50) was similarly familiar, a carbon

stylers might not feel the vibe with ZPizza’s interpretation of the thin-crust experience, but if they don’t give this crust a try, they’re missing out. Fire-baked on hot bricks, it comes out chewy and toasty, comparable to fresh-baked, high-quality bread. I was actually surprised to find myself savoring the sauce-less, bready ends of each slice. Normally I jettison the pizza ends as a mere wasted experience in carbohydrates. Not so at ZPizza. Another great combination was the Tuscan pizza ($10.50; $17.50; $21.50). It was slathered with a roasted garlic sauce, covered with mozzarella, caramelized onions, feta, truffle oil, and thyme, then populated liberally with cremini, shitake and button mushrooms.

We also tried the Provence pizza ($9.95; $16.95; $20.95), this time with ZPizza’s vegan cheese. Everything about the Provence was delicious — the tangy tomato sauce, the roasted garlic, the capers, the fresh basil. But that vegan cheese was — how do I put this delicately? — kind of icky. As someone who loves dairy, but is also acutely aware that not all California cows are happy cows, I really, really wanted to like that vegan cheese. But my two dining companions and I agreed that it pretty much ruined the pizza. It melted to the consistency of Velveeta and tasted like canola oil, which happens to be a primary ingredient in the Daiyabrand cheese they use. I appreciate that ZPizza offers so many vegan and veggie alternatives and can only hope that those people better accustomed to mindful eating than I am find something to

love in Daiya. A tastier alternative for vegetarians might be ZPizza’s soy-based cheese. True vegans will want to know that the soy cheese contains casein, an animal protein. ZPizza offers two copious and tasty pasta dishes: penne with meatballs and a chicken penne pesto ($7.50 each). Each day of the week brings a different special. For example, during lunch on Tuesdays you get a free 14-inch specialty pizza with the purchase of an 18-inch. On Saturdays, kids get a free slice of cheese pizza and fountain drink with a minimal adult-sized purchase. Delivery is free with a $20 minimum. It might be easy to dismiss franchises as soulless purveyors of cuisine created by committee, but in the case of franchises like ZPizza, where a good concept meets good food and a good value, what’s not to enjoy?

NMOVIEREVIEWS

CYRUS ---

(Aquarius) John (John C. Reilly) is “borderline desperate,” he says. A more accurate description would be “totally desperate.” Divorced for seven years, the central character of “Cyrus” can’t seem to find a woman to replace his ex and still close friend Jamie (Catherine Keener), who is about to marry someone else. Then John reluctantly accompanies Jamie and her fiance to a party, where, drunk and rowdy, he amazingly hooks up with Molly (Marisa Tomei) — beautiful, loving and complete with baggage. The baggage is her obese 21-year-old son Cyrus (Jonah Hill), who still lives with her. Sure, Cyrus is delighted to meet John and happy to “have a new dad.” So he says. But his relationship with Molly is unusual, at the least, and Cyrus starts subtly to sabotage John’s relationship with her. A charming movie, with performances that are flawlessly true-to-life. Rated R for some sexual material and language. One hour, 32 minutes. — R.P.

sub-zero world. M. Night Shyamalan has been criticized for whitewashing the main characters, who are brown-skinned in the television series, but he should be chastised for directing such terrible performances. Awkward and wooden, Peltz and Rathbone deliver stilted dialogue and their few attempts at humor fall flat. Noah Ringer, in an engaging debut, fares better as Aang, the lone avatar capable of restoring balance to the war-torn planet. Frozen for a century and freed by Katara’s waterbending, the young boy must lead the struggle to fend off the Fire Nation’s militaristic attempt to conquer the Air, Water and Earth nations. Only he has the capability to “bend” or manipulate all four elements and restore harmony. Rated: PG for violence and not recommended for young children. 1 hour, 43 minutes. — S.T. )

PREDATORS--1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) In an attempt to resurrect a moribund franchise, 20th Century Fox welcomes us back to the jungle for “Predators,” in which tall, dark and ugly aliens again hunt humans. The broad-strokes plot repeats John McTiernan’s 1987 “Predator”: A platoon of humans tries to stay alive while hunted through booby-trapped jungle terrain by hulking laser-armed alien(s); the humans are dispatched one by one until a mano-a-alieno climax. Rated R for strong creature violence and gore, and pervasive language. One hour, 46 minutes. — P.C.

DESPICABLE ME--1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Steve Carell voices Gru, an Eastern European supervillain plotting to reverse a slump by stealing a shrink ray and, subsequently, the moon. For years, he’s been subsidized in his half-baked heists by loans from the Bank of Evil, but having tired of Gru’s shtick, the bank decides to back another horse: young mad-scientist du jour Vector (Jason Segel). Thus a spy-vs.-spy style war breaks out between Gru and Vector, who seems always to have the upper hand. Enter three orphans: maternal Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), back-talking Edith (Dana Gaier) and unicorn-loving Agnes (Elsie Fisher). The curmudgeonly Gru hates kids, but he sees an opportunity to exploit them for his own ends. And so he adopts them — or, in his mind, rents them — to put one over on Vector. Anyone who’s ever read “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” can guess where this is headed. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, and some sensuality. One hour, 35 minutes. — P.C.

THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE--

(Guild) All the hype around publishing sensation Stieg Larsson, late author of the “Millennium” trilogy, doesn’t do the film version of “The Girl Who Played with Fire” any favors. Lacking the psychological intimacy afforded by the page, Daniel Alfredson’s film won’t inspire better than a shrug from audiences. The first of two sequels to the all-around more compelling “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” this film picks up with Swedish punk lesbian super-hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) abroad but still keeping tabs on her arch-nemesis Nils Bjurman (Peter Andersson), the degenerate lawyer whom the law sees as her upstanding legal guardian. Meanwhile, Millennium magazine, under the auspices of crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist (dishwater-dull Michael Nyqvist) prepares a bombshell story exposing a sex trafficking ring and its clientele. Rated R for brutal violence including a rape, some strong sexual content, nudity and language. Two hours, nine minutes. P.C.

THE LAST AIRBENDER --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) The epic fantasy opens with siblings Katara (Nicola Peltz) and Sokka (Jackson Rathbone) searching for food and stumbling upon something trapped beneath the icy surface of their
