Co-op preschool will close without a new home By Nick Veronin

56-year-old local co-op preschool may shut its doors forever if it cannot find a new home by next summer, as its lease with the local high school district is being cut short. “We are asking the board

for clemency, more time, help or all of the above,” said Dara Gray Tynefield, board president emeritus for the Los Altos Parent Preschool, at the high school district’s board meeting on Aug. 9. “If the move date remains June of 2011, it could be the end of LAPP.”

Tynefield, along with three other women, pressed the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District board at its Monday meeting, voicing their support for the preschool and its low-cost, preSee PRESCHOOL, page 6

resident Greg David and Google employees Aaron Jabbari and Dan Waylonis. They will vie for three seats held by incumbents Jac Siegel, Margaret Abe-Koga and Mayor Ronit Bryant, who all are seeking a second term. Jabbari, who is the youngest council candidate in memory at 20 years old, is an online sales account manager at Google from

Laguna Beach. See page 9 for the Voice’s story on Jabbari. The other Google employee, 44-year-old libertarian and software engineer Dan Waylonis, was profiled by the Voice last month. As for Greg David, he has yet to comment to the VoiceVoice about his candidacy. In an e-mail, he told another local newspaper that he wanted to

orget about aerial tracks or tunnels. If high-speed trains are to run through Mountain View, the tracks will be either at-grade or in a trench, the California High Speed Rail Authority reported last week. At a rail authority board meeting in San Francisco Aug. 6, the agency dropped the tunnel and cut-and-cover alternatives along much of the Midpeninsula, despite heavy lobbying by Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton and other Midpeninsula cities. While a full-blown tunnel was never really on the table for Mountain View, the city had been considering a partially covered trench to provide a walking path between the downtown area and Rengstroff Park. It appears that the city would be on the hook for paying for that

make “common sense” decisions for residents and small businesses and that his priorities included private property and personal rights for residents. David is a longtime resident whose family ran Eddy’s sport shop on Castro Street for many years. Planning commission chair John McAlister said he was considering being a candidate last week, but decided against it. Likewise, wealthy pot club operator Matt Lucero announced Friday that he would not be running for Mountain View

partial trench covering. Mountain View was the only Peninsula city to have the aerial viaduct dropped from the option list. The aerial viaduct option was widely unpopular in recent public hearings on high-speed rail here. “I could not imagine how an aerial structure could possibly be fit into Mountain View without having a huge impact on us,” said Mayor Ronit Bryant, who attended the board meeting. In Mountain View, a deep tunnel option has not been a studied alternative, although a partially covered trench has been supported by the City Council. The city had recently asked the rail authority to study a deep tunnel in Mountain View was well, which is now unlikely. A new staff report lists just two design options for the PenSee HSR, page 9

City Council this year, despite announcing his intention to run in several newspapers. “My top priority continues to be helping the thousands of seriously ill residents of this community and, as such, I am putting my political aspirations aside and will not be running for political office this year,” Lucero wrote in a press release about the new location of the Buddy’s Cannabis Patient Collective, which originally opened in Mountain View.

Arson suspected in truck fire Police suspect arson is to blame for a dramatic vehicle fire that awoke residents in the 1800 block of Ednamary Way in the wee hours of Monday morning. A white Chevrolet pickup truck parked in the back lot of the Office Depot, located at 910 El Monte Ave., caught fire around 3 a.m. Aug. 9, said Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. A nearby resident reported hearing a sound like an explosion when the truck

first caught fire. Magda Lira, who lives nearby on Ednamary Way, said her roommate woke her up around 3 a.m. to alert her of the fire. She said police evacuated the apartment building nearest the blaze. Lira said she believes the pickup had been parked in the same spot behind the Office Depot for about a year, and assumed it was abandoned. Wylie reported that the truck

had been parked for about two months, but said she, too, suspected it was abandoned. The fire department extinguished the fire, which police are investigating as an arson, Wylie said. The truck was destroyed by the flames. —Nick Veronin A white pickup truck burst into flames in the Office Depot parking lot Aug. 9. ANNA MIRSKY

Seekers of alien life converge for MV group’s SETI convention By Daniel DeBolt

A

first-of-its-kind convention this weekend is hosted by Mountain View’s SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), which aims to appeal to the masses with a little help from the science fiction world. SETIcon lands in Santa Clara’s Hyatt Regency Friday. Scientists will talk about the latest in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence and related topics. SETI, founded in 1985, has never held such a conference before, said Seth Shostak, SETI senior

astronomer, KMVT volunteer and radio host. He said SETIcon will be heavier on actual science than other conventions, like Comic-Con, but just as fun. Speakers include Mike Brown, the scientist who demoted Pluto to non-planet status, best-selling author Mary Roach, Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweickart and Tim Russ from the Star Trek Voyager TV show. In a SETI members-only event Friday night, Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart will present his film “Rhythms of the Universe,” an audio-visual presenta-

tion described as a “sonic wonder, from the Big Bang onwards through galaxy and star formation up until modern time.” Topics discussed by panels throughout the weekend include “Why Are There No Tourists from Other Worlds?” and “Which Came First — The Science or the Science Fiction?” To be honored at a banquet See SETI, page 7

Ballet school piques tots’ interest in dance By Emily Hamilton

ith colorful arts and crafts hanging from the ceiling, paper mache decorating the walls, and toys scattered almost everywhere, it’s a typical preschool classroom. But on Aug. 10, the bookshelves and toddler-sized furniture were pushed aside to make way for a special performance at Bishop Child Development

Center in Sunnyvale. Forty 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds rushed in with their playground-induced energy, but were soon quieted by classical music, as teachers from Western Ballet led a demonstration. “What Western Ballet wants to do is make ballet accessible to all kids,” said Western Ballet board member Camilla Kao. Western Ballet has led similar demonstrations in the past, but this is was the first to target

Bishop CDC’s demographic of kids from lower-income families, Kao said. Leading the demonstration were Robin Zeleznik, who spoke to the kids, and Eileen Zubiría, who danced for them. Zeleznik began by talking about the importance of warming up, using some of the kids’ favorite sports as analogies. “Even big, professional footSee BALLET, page 9

ay rights advocates gathered at the Mountain View Caltrain station Wednesday evening to celebrate the decision delivered by a federal judge today to overturn Proposition 8, the controversial initiative banning same-sex marriages that was approved by California voters in 2008. “In Mountain View, we pride ourselves on our diversity,” said Ronit Bryant, the mayor of Mountain View. “We prove it every day in the way we live, in the way that we work together, in the way that we’ve built our lives together. We prove it in our very firm opposition to any type of discrimination. Congratulations to all of us.” The 100 or more marchers seemed to share that sentiment. “Gay, straight, black, white — marriage is a civil right!” they chanted as they marched down Castro Street. People eating at the restaurants along the way looked on and occasionally cheered in support. There was no one actively protesting the rally, which eventually made its way to City Hall, where several local officials spoke. A passing driver did signal his disapproval with his middle finger, however. Ray Hixson, co-chair of the Santa Clara County chapter of Marriage Equality U.S.A. said he was thrilled with the decision. “It means equality and dignity for every citizen,” Hixson said. Hixson, who is gay, did not

come out of the closet until he was 36 for fear of the stigma he faced growing up in his southern town. His parents still do not talk to him, he told the crowd over a bullhorn. He said that Proposition 8 hurts families and children. U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker wrote in his decision that the proposition was unconstitutional. “Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license,” U.S District Judge Vaughn Walker wrote in his decision. “Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples. Cecilia Colombetti, a lesbian living in Mountain View, said not being able to marry her partner is unfair to their two sons. “It’s important for our sons that we be able to get married,” she said, “so they know that their family is no different than any other family.” Colombetti came to the rally with one of her sons, who squirmed furiously when a train pulled into the station. “He likes the train,” she said. “Just like every other 3-year-old.” Sally Lieber, the former speaker pro tempore of the state assembly was one of several speakers at the rally. “We’re living history,” Lieber said to an enthusiastic crowd.

Tynefield said. “We educate our parents,” she told the board, saying that the parent-participation model would be threatened if the preschool were forced to move. As a mother of three, Tynefield said she understands the district’s concern with meeting the anticipated demand of a growing student population — her children will one day be in high school and she said she wants the best for them when they get there. However, she said, if the site of the preschool is going to be used for “one more classroom or parking spaces, I think it’s worthy of a community conversation about what’s more important.” While board members expressed sympathy for Tynefield and the other supporters, they maintained their stance. In anticipation of a large influx of students over the next decade, they said that they need the space on the west end of the Los Altos High School campus. The preschool moved there in 1998 from its original location at a local church. “We need that space to accommodate students,” said Barry Groves, district superintendent. Groves called the program “outstanding,” and said that he participated in a similar program in Petaluma when his children were young. Joe White, superintendent of business services for the district, said that Los Altos High School can expect about 450 additional students over the next 10 years, and that the district would like to use the 15,000 square feet now occupied by the preschool’s parking area, playground and portable classrooms to accommodate that growth. “We need all the space we can get,” he said. White said the district has made no final decision as to how the space will be used. It is possible that the preschool’s portable classroom will be used for high school students. The land may also be cleared to make way for new construction. “I’m disappointed,” Tynefield See PRESCHOOL, page 7

for the school. She has talked to elementary school districts in both Mountain View and Los Altos, both city councils, the local community college district and more than 40 churches. The district, in preparing for an estimated 25-percent increase in its student body by 2020, has informed the preschool that it must leave its current location on the Los Altos campus before June 15, 2011. The preschool’s lease with the district is scheduled to end in 2014. However, the district reserved the right to terminate that agreement early. Los Altos Parent Preschool is a cooperative, where parents give a portion of their time — about one day a week, on average, according to Tynefield — to volunteer. The preschool, which Tynefield estimates serves about 60 families annually, is a part of the Mountain View-Los Altos adult education program, although it has run independently of district funding since its subsidies were cut last year. Parents earn credit for the time they volunteer at the preschool, as they receive instruction from program staff and work with the children to apply what they learn. The preschool is open to families of all income levels, even if they don’t live in the high school district. Scholarships are offered to lowincome families. Tynefield said that parent participation in the program keeps tuition down. The preschool offers multiple programs for different age groups with tuition ranging from $1,900 to $3,600 annually. “Simply, we cannot afford commercial rents and offer the quality program we do, at an accessible tuition,” she said. In contrast, monthly tuition for Wonder World Preschool in Mountain View is $950 for half-day preschool for 2- and 3-year-olds; tuition for Action Day Primary Plus preschool in Mountain View can run as much as $1,524 per month for the pre-kindergarten program.

NASA request is a ‘promising’ move for Hangar One’s future By Daniel DeBolt

N

ASA Ames Research Center is taking a potential first step towards restoring Hangar One at Moffett Field by asking construction contractors to consider the cost of restoring the iconic landmark. NASA wants to hear from contractors and other interested parties on how they would go about replacing the hangar’s toxic siding — with cost estimates, said Ames director of center operations, Deb Feng. Past estimates have ranged from $15 million to $40 million, but Feng said she was sure it wasn’t $15 million. According to the “Request for Information� (RFI), released Monday, NASA wants to put new corrugated steel siding on Hangar One once the Navy removes the existing laminate siding, which contains PCBs and asbestos, next year. The RFI says that “NASA’s desire is to rehabilitate the hangar with new metal siding, restore the historic windows, install a new roof on the upper crown of the hangar and return the hangar to a state of usefulness.� While the RFI looks like a “promising� step forward, some of the hangar’s most ardent preservation-

ists were disappointed to see that NASA wants to use metal siding, said Lenny Siegel, board member of the Air and Space West Foundation. Siegel and his fellow board members have been working to preserve the hangar for years and are now working with the Smithsonian Institute to put an air and space museum inside. A proposal for a teflon-fiberglass fabric siding was made in 2007 by architect Linda Ellis, wife of the Air and Space West Foundation’s CEO Larry Ellis. Similar to what is used on the Shoreline Amphitheatre, it would be semi-translucent for natural lighting and have some cost savings over time, Ellis had said. While the RFI is not asking for bids on the actual residing work, a request for proposals could be the next step. Chief among the reasons for the RFI, Feng said, was to identify the costs of re-skinning Hangar One so that NASA management could figure out how to move forward. The request said that “to date, funding has not been identified for this rehabilitation effort,� but Feng said NASA was looking at various sources, including the possibility of funding it internally along with a $10 million appropriation Congresswoman Anna Eshoo is

School board elections Both school board incumbents face no challengers for re-election to the Mountain View Whisman School District’s board of trustees this November. The two incumbents are Ellen Wheeler and Phillip Palmer. Robin Iwai, a school volunteer and vice president of the board of

the Day Worker Center of Mountain View, initially pulled papers but has decided not to run. Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District trustees Judy Hannemann and Joe Mitchner are up for re-election this year. Incumbent Julia Rosenberg will not seek re-election. At press time, it was

seeking. “Anna has been very supportive of it, so we feel that there is some way to get the funding,� Feng said. Very soon $1.2 million will be needed if NASA wants to preserve the hangar’s unique corrugated windows, which would need to be carefully removed and the asbestos sealing putty cleaned off. Feng said an RFI was not unusual for NASA projects, but said it was “more unusual� for its construction projects. Siegel said he’d wished that the Navy had sent out an request before moving on its now controversial plan to remove the siding and destroy some of the hangar’s historic interior structures, which has left preservationist scrambling to save historic artifacts. NASA went as far as to vet the RFI with the State Historic Preservation Office, Feng said. “We have not skinned a hangar like this ever,� Feng said. “We thought (the RFI) was the smart thing to do because of the uniqueness of Hangar One. We want the best of minds and eyes on it.� The RFI is available at tinyurl. com/hangarone-rfi and the deadline for responses is Sept. 23.

upwards of a 1,000 people “from all over the place.� Unfortunately for SETI, those visitors are probably still limited to those from planet earth. The event could have been held in Mountain View, Shostak admits, but there is no conference center here. SETI is a collection of over 100 privately funded scientists working away in a Mountain View office building, with some of them listening for signs of alien life in radio waves from space. That was recently made easier with the installation of SETI’s new Allen Telescope Array, a set of dish antennas near Redding. In other SETI news, the nonprofit operation will soon be moving from its North Whisman Road location to larger, more permanent home in Mountain View at 189 Bernardo Avenue, Shostak said.

Now Enrolling for Fall 2010/2011 Classes

The community comes FIRST

A

nyone who is “interested in ensuring that the district is allocating their Measure A dollars to appropriate projects� should apply to a new oversight committee, said Barry Groves, superintendent of the Mountain View Los Altos High School district. The committee is tasked with keeping tabs on the $41.3 million bond that voters passed in June. The bond extends the older Measure D — set to expire in 2024 — by six years. According to Groves, the money will be used to build about 15 new classrooms and labs, install solar panels and revamp ventilation systems at both Mountain View and Los Altos high schools. All of that is needed to accommodate anticipated enrollment growth of about 25 percent over the next 10 years, Groves said. The district will take on the construction of solar panels first, Joe White, associate superintendent of business services, told the district’s trustees at their August 9 meeting. He said contractors will likely begin solar panel installation in November and finish by the end of March 2011. The bond oversight committee will be charged with evaluating how the estimated $41.3 million in bond money is used. The committee will review all expenditures to

make sure they are only being spent on designated Measure A projects, report their findings to the public and make annual presentations on the progress of Measure A projects to the district’s board of trustees. The committee is to be composed of at least seven members, each representing disparate interests within the community. The district board is seeking parents of children in the district, P.T.A. members, representatives of local business, active members of senior citizens’ organizations, active members of a “bona-fide taxpayers’ association,� and community members at-large. Groves said the district hopes to begin installing solar panels and planning new classrooms this year. Measure A funds also will pay for a new pool at Mountain View High School. Groves said the current pool has been at the high school since it was built. “It leaks,� Groves said, adding that it is not regulation size for aquatic sports. White said the district plans to begin construction of the pool in the third week of May 2011. For an oversight committee application, go to the district website at www.mvla.net or call the district at 940-4650. Applications are due Sept. 17. V

insula segment: one relies on street level and aerial structures and another includes tunnels at several portions of the segment. Tunneling is still an option for a stretch in San Francisco, in the Burlingame/Millbrae area and in Santa Clara. In Option A, Mountain View would have tracks run entirely at grade, presumably with Castro Street and Rengstorff running underneath. Option B is much the same, except an open trench runs from Stevens Creek and under Castro Street and Rengstorff Avenue before returning to grade level. East of Highway 237, both options call for an aerial viaduct. A “sub-option” called B1, would run an open trench all the way from the town of Atherton to Fair Oaks Avenue in Sunnyvale. Issues with tunnel option A deep tunnel would “result in critical risks due to ground conditions, have major constructability issues, lengthy construction schedule and substantial cost features,” the report said.

But there are exceptions. “Partially or completely covered trench or short-tunnel sections may be constructed to ameliorate either narrow right of way or environmental concerns” on the Peninsula segment, the report states. That includes creeks. “The San Francisquito Creek in Palo Alto could be a location where a short tunnel underneath the creek would be necessary in order to not interfere with the creek’s water flow.” Trench covering at city’s expense It says that in other sections, trenching would be designed “to not preclude future decking or coverage” which “would allow cities to cover sections of the trench if they found it desirable and if it were acceptable by Caltrain and the Authority.” Covered sections of less than 600 feet could be added later “without requiring sophisticated fire/life safety systems,” the report said. Bryant said she believed the cost of covering the trench would have to be carried by the city. V

OBITUARY

Supporters of marriage equality walk hand-in-hand down Castro Street in downtown Mountain View.

PROP 8

Continued from page 5

“We’re living the opportunity to take unfair legislation out of our constitution.� ProtectMarriage.com, the official proponents of Proposition 8, called the decision “a disappointment,� and vowed to appeal the judgment in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. “It is disturbing that the trial court, in order to strike down Prop 8, has literally accused the majority of California voters of having ill and discriminatory intent when casting their votes for Prop 8,� said Andy Pugno, general counsel for ProtectMarriage.com, in an official statement. The final talk was given by members of Mountain Viewbased Outlet, a support system for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth which has about 4,000 participants. “Even though they’re not going to get married any time soon, they still should have the same right as everyone else,� said Eileen Ross, Outlet’s director. Teens from Outlet shared their personal stories and reactions to

today’s decision. “My goal in life it to spread awareness. That’s our biggest enemy: not people, ignorance,� said Cyrus, a 17-year-old Iranian-American who was raised Mormon. Michael Wald, a law professor at Stanford University, said he had expected Walker would overturn the proposition. He said that attorneys defending Proposition 8 failed to demonstrate that the state would have a vested interest in preserving the traditional definition of marriage. The defense “did not present credible expert testimony that there was any reason to distinguish between same-sex and opposite-sex marriages other than a distaste for same-sex marriages,� Wald said. Moving forward in the appeals process will be difficult for the defense, according to Wald, since they cannot introduce new evidence in the appeals process and because, in appeals such as these, the lower court’s decision is presumed to be right. Wald said the defense will have to argue that Walker did not consider their argument carefully enough. “I think the defense faces an uphill battle,� he said. V

How far to go for high-speed rail?

Don’t forget ‘hip’ in city’s plan

f Mountain View wants a high-speed rail terminal here there is a major catch: the city would have to provide 3,000 parking spaces, including 1,000 adjacent to the station, as well as make room for a 65,000-square-foot terminal building, Mayor Ronit Bryant said last week. When they considered adding high-speed rail to its transit center, which already accommodates Caltrain, Light Rail, and county buses, city officials had no idea what the commitment entailed. But after Mayor Bryant disclosed what the city would have to do to be in the running to host the terminal, the council may have second thoughts. At this point, it is not clear that the city could even find a location for 1,000 spaces adjacent to the station and another 2,000 no more than three miles away from the transit center. For comparison, the city’s new garage at California and Bryant streets has 405 spaces, which is less than half the requirement for hosting a terminal. And if Mountain View is the chosen stop, the rail authority “is planning to build just the basic stuff. They are budgeting for basic infrastructure. Cities would pay for enhancements,� Mayor Bryant said. In another high-speed rail development, at a San Francisco board meeting last week the authority announced that deep tunnels and covered trenches have been ruled out as options on most of the Peninsula rail corridor, leaving either open trenches or at-grade installation the only options for Mountain View. At this point, it is not clear how Peninsula cities will cope without the heavily favored deep tunneling option, which is viewed by the rail authority as too costly. The remaining below-grade option, open trenches, will now be the preferred design, as other Peninsula cities are almost unanimously against elevating trains 45 feet off the ground on a berm or viaduct, which they feel would erect a huge barrier between neighborhoods on either side of the tracks. With its decision last week, the rail authority made no friends among Peninsula cities, which had been promised that designs and presentations would be posted online at least five days ahead of board meetings. But on this occasion, city representatives did not learn about the decision until just minutes before the meeting. Menlo Park Mayor Rich Cline, who chairs a consortium of cities with concerns about high-speed rail, said the authority was not “playing by the rules.� At this stage, the City Council will need to take a hard look at whether it is worth going forward with the idea of hosting a high-speed rail terminal in Mountain View. Besides providing a large “intermediate� terminal of 65,000 square feet, the platform would have to be extended to accommodate the longer high-speed trains of up to 1,300 feet, a quarter of a mile. It is not clear how such a long platform would fit if trains were running in an open trench, with passengers embarking below grade and accessing the terminal via escalators or stairs. The council is not yet solidly behind becoming an intermediate stop between San Francisco and San Jose, but members did vote in 2009 to have the rail authority study a potential stop, which put the city in competition with Palo Alto and Redwood City. So far, the authority has not said whether a study is underway.

I

just graduated from Los Altos High this year but as a longtime resident of the city, I have some definite opinions about the future of Mountain View I would like to share. It is a great idea to spruce up the city, but the current plans don’t go far enough. Mountain View has potential to become a hip place — somewhere people want to visit and don’t have to explain, “I live 45 miles south of San Francisco.� These building plans are the meal ticket to put Mountain View on the map. If you are raised here, you are familiar with every type of person and culture, which I greatly appreciate. We should embrace that by making our city more of a draw, rather than just adding more dry cleaners. Castro Street is the only place that’s developed a decent night life, with ethnic restaurants, clubs, and bars open late. Mountain View resident Robert was smart in pointing out that Moffett Boulevard is a place to extend “the downtown environment.� Absolutely. I also like the idea of building higher on El Camino, especially if the “walkable� idea is incorporated. Who wants to spend time on El Camino now, as it is? The corner of Rengstorff and Middlefield also has potential. There’s already a Starbucks. The Monta Loma neighborhood is still waiting for that ex-grocery store to come back to life. Every shopping center like that doesn’t always have to have the standard dry cleaner and liquor store. There is a captive audience eager for hip, independent stores. The same is true with the area

around the movie theater complex on Shoreline. It’s always had a trashy air to it, but that could change. Besides, if you’re considering putting a hotel there, shouldn’t there be attractions that would entice people to stay in the hotel? Chris Banen said, “The idea is not to recreate downtown� in the North Bayshore neighborhood. Umm, disagree! If you’re expanding the housing and practical parts of the city, shouldn’t you also expand the entertainment industry? We need independent coffee shops, hip restaurants and unique shopping. What about a music nightclub where local bands play? And the bigger issue is you’re only aiming to help future Google employees. Help the die-hard MV fans also, why don’t you! I also hope the architecture for this future construction will steer clear from the design of standard suburban buildings. Mountain View is home to fantastically innovative people. Show the rest of the Bay Area how much we drip in culture. Give them spicy architecture. When it comes to the San Antonio Shopping Center, I love the idea of something besides a rundown Sears. That space goes to waste and looks trashy. Embarrassing. Where’s the flare? Even with the Santana Row-esque idea. Don’t just make a pretty mall with chain stores. After all, Mountain View is the heart of Silicon Valley! We’re original people. We need to reflect that in our businesses. I’m such a fan of this town, and Castro Street is just the beginning. Let’s see what else we can do. Emma Mae Carr is 18 and just graduated from Los Altos High. She is taking a gap year in France this fall and has lived in Mountain View most of her life.

n Italy, an enoteca is a place where lesser known local wines are introduced to the public. Over the years, many enotecas segued into restaurants that feature not only the local wines, but local foods as well. Vino Locale, in downtown Palo Alto, has been a Bay Area version of that notion since 2004. Owner Randy Robinson was smitten with the idea after visiting enotecas in Italy. “I wanted to introduce the idea of Euro-style dining to the area,” Robinson said. Not only does Vino Locale represent over 70 Santa Cruz Mountains wineries, the menu is comprised almost exclusively of meats, fruits,

vegetables and cheeses raised in the greater Bay Area, using organic products as much as possible. “Our meat is from Niman Ranch, grass fed. Our goat cheese is delivered from Harley Farms in Pescadero. We buy our seasonal, organic produce from Live Earth Farm in Watsonville,” Robinson said. Indeed, Vino Locale is about as locavore as any restaurant can be that’s situated in a huge urban setting. Then again, this is Northern California and we are blessed with both grand agriculture and superb viticulture. Each month, Vino Locale features a different winery. During Continued on next page

Inside, the diminutive threeroom space is spartan but homey — bare wood floors and tables in two rooms, a tasting bar in the third. Artist-of-the-month watercolors adorn the walls. Vino Locale isn’t a full-blown restaurant. They have a panini grill for making sandwiches and the remainder of the menu is assembled plates, salads and desserts. It’s lighter fare that perfectly complements the local wines. We enjoyed the crostini sampler ($12). Two each of feta herb, red onion and prosciutto, Asian mushroom mix, and hummus atop slices of toasted baguette. The crostini was well matched with Downhill Winery 2009 Barbera Rosato ($6 per glass), a dry, crisp, RosÊ.

wineries ready to pour as well — reds, whites, RosÊs, sparkling and dessert wines. Vino Locale is located in a 100year-old Colonial Revival house on the 400 block of Kipling Street and is listed in the Palo Alto historical register. The houses on that block are a step back to quieter times, with front porches, lazy trees and flowering bushes. The times aren’t all that quiet any longer on that block of Kipling but Vino Locale has a secluded patio/ garden in the back that isolates patrons from street noise and, on balmy summer nights, is a tranquil oasis that quickly soothes jittery nerves. It’s a pleasant place to relax with a partner or a group of friends.

8FFLFOE Tasty chunks of mildly spiced Spanish chorizo ($8) were simmered in red wine and herbs. It’s a tapa nearly ubiquitous from the Rioja wine region to Barcelona and beyond. In Spain, the wine would be sopped up with yeasty, rustic rolls. Here it was served with a French baguette. The Mediterranean plate ($16.50) was a delight. The platter was loaded with Cowgirl Creamery cheeses — nutty Tarentaise, lush triple cream Mt. Tam, and peppercorn studded papato. There were meats as well, a dry salami, a rich coppa salami and a tasty sopressata. Olives, fruit, bread and crackers completed the platter. It was enough for two for a light dinner or just a great plate of nibblers if you have something else in mind for a later dinner elsewhere. The 2007 Downhill pinot noir ($30 a bottle) went well with its subtle layers of cherry, spices and blackberry. The Mediterranean plate combined, albeit in smaller portions, the essence of the artisanal cheese plate and the charcuterie plate ($16.50 each). The grilled panini were all $9. I tried the smoked chicken on baguette and wasn’t disappointed, although there was no garnish on the plate to heighten aesthetic appeal. The chicken was tender, the

bread crisp and flaky. There were other choices for panini: smoked ham, turkey and salami, chorizo, smoked turkey and a vegetarian selection. There are three choices for desserts, XOX chocolate truffles ($2 each) made in San Francisco, Charlie’s cheesecake minis ($2) from San Jose and the chocolate panino ($6). Twice I ordered the cheesecake, but neither time was it available. The chocolate panino was likely the best of the lot. Creamy bittersweet chocolate was melted between slices of crunchy baguette on the panini grill. Hard to beat that deliriously wonderful bread and oozy chocolate combination. We bought a taste ($1.50) of the Late Harvest Viognier from Poetic Cellars in Soquel to accompany the panino. It held just enough honeyed sweetness, satisfying without overwhelming. There is one more element to Vino Locale — local art. Each month, different artists are featured. During my visits, the watercolors of Steve Curl adorned the walls while jewelry artist Lynn Fielder showcased her wares in a glass display cabinet. Service can be rather slow as the waitstaff assembles the orders, busses tables, explains and pours wines. One evening, after a

NMOVIEREVIEWS

GET LOW---

(Guild) The new film “Get Low� — set in 1930s Tennessee — fits snugly into the traditions of Southern literature, particularly the tensions between gentility and eccentricity, the community and the individual, and man and God. The plot finds Duvall’s Felix Bush leaving his forest cabin to put his affairs and funeral plans in order. His refusal to ask forgiveness makes him a poor candidate for a church burial, but he’s willing to entertain the offer of services from young funeral director Buddy (Lucas Black). When Lucas’ boss Frank (Bill Murray) feels the tug of a big fish, he involves himself in Felix’s crackpot plan of a funeral at which he will be the guest of honor. All other guests will be required to share a story about Felix, in exchange for a chance to inherit his 300 acres of tall, virgin trees. Rated PG-13 for some thematic material and brief violent content. One hour, 40 minutes. — P.C.

MIDDLE MEN--

(Century 16, Century 20) The film’s story stretches back to 1988 and sprawls forward to 2004. But most of it takes place in the “middle,� the 1990s, when slovenly, bickering roommates Wayne Beering and Buck Dolby (Giovanni Ribisi and Gabriel Macht) inspire each other to reinvent porn as an instant and private pastime — via the Internet. Otherwise dumb as rocks, they’re in desperate need of rescue by a man with a business plan. Enter Jack Harris (Luke Wilson), an all-purpose business-fixer who sees a chance to get in on the ground floor of something big. Those expecting a comical look at how two losers stumbled on “the greatest invention of all time� (online credit-card billing) will be satisfied with the film’s opening movements. Unfortunately, “Middle Men� swiftly turns into a pastiche of Scorsese movies and their many descendants, contrasting a high-roller lifestyle with its seedy underbelly as Jack goes on a journey of temptation to sin. Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, language, drug use and violence. One hour, 45 minutes. — P.C.

THE OTHER GUYS---

(Century 16, Century 20) As detectives Allen Gamble and Terry Hoitz, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg play unlikely partners. The mousy Allen is happy sitting behind his computer doing accounting for the New York City Police Department, while triggertempered Terry itches for battle. When, in the course of his computer work, Allen discovers a humongous case of fraud, the two go into action, with Terry mocking the reluctant Allen all the way. Will the two form a bromantic bond? Stay tuned. Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, violence, some drug material and language. One hour, 47 minutes. — R.P.
