wo local high school seniors are taking old, unwanted computers donated by the community, repairing essential components and software, and giving the machines to fellow students in need. The project, called Silicon for Society, began in the summer of

2009 in an effort to provide less fortunate students with the tools they need to succeed in a world where computer literacy is essential, cofounder Jack Montgomery said. As a freshman at Los Altos High School, Montgomery read about Eastern and European cultures in his World Studies class. He was introduced to foreign customs and took in images and artwork

from places he had never been. However, even as Montgomery buried his nose in texts detailing the idiosyncrasies of faraway lands, he was astonished to learn of a community much closer to home — a community which lived in a manner entirely alien him. “I didn’t know that there was anybody who didn’t have a comSee LAPTOPS, page 8

Cuesta streets has proposed a slew of wireless antennae devices on its roof to be enclosed in a new steeple. Parents of the Little Acorn preschool, located next door on the church’s property, are concerned about exposing 70 or so children to what may be cancer-causing radiation. As of noon on Wednesday 57 people signed an online petition in opposition, and 15 others have signed the paper version.

Parents have only recently learned about the proposal and started circulating the petition two days ago, said parent W. Tsang. “People are concerned about radiation,” she said. “Does the community really want this or need this or can it be explored somewhere else?” While the church may make money from leasing the space to Clear Wireless LLC, Tsang said the See CELL TOWER, page 6

major issue in this year’s council election, the City Council touched on the issue of reining in the cost of city employee compensation Tuesday as the City Council unanimously adopted a set of mid- and long-term budget strategies. While the city’s tax revenues for its $88 million general fund have remained flat in recent years, the rising cost of employee pay raises, health care and pension costs have brought on new deficits every year as city employee salaries are 80 percent of the city budget. On Tuesday finance director Patty Kong said that a recent actuarial report showed the cost of giving pensions to retired employees would increase by $5 million over three years. Having the city’s pension costs increase by “$2 million, two years in a row, is a significant challenge,” said City Manager Kevin Duggan. With all of the city’s unions’ contracts expiring over the next two years, council members said that the automatic pay raises guaranteed in multi-year union contracts in better economic times would probably have to go. “In previous years automatic COLAs (cost of living adjustments) added $3 to $5 million to our annual budget,” said council member Laura Macias. “We need to be more careful about what we guarantee,” said council member Tom Means. As an economics professor at San Jose State University, Means said his union contract made pay raises dependent on state funding, implying that the city should give pay raises depending on whether or not tax revenues allow it. Other possibilities include asking the city’s unions to share more

of the cost of health insurance and pension benefits, something they already do to some extent. On top of re-examining employee compensation, other strategies adopted by the council to be implemented over the next year include an evaluation of alternative ways to operate the city’s moneylosing golf course, examining the possibility of sharing services with other cities such as animal control and emergency communications services, and a look at ways to save money with the city’s vehicle fleet. The city will also consider a maintenance district for Castro Street that would assess a tax on See CITY BUDGET, page 6

POLICE CATCH MAN SUSPECTED OF FORGING PRESCRIPTION

#HALLENGING%NGAGING*OYFUL 5PPER3CHOOL/PEN(OUSEPM PM 7BMQBSBJTP"WFOVF "UIFSUPO $"tsXXXNFOMPTDIPPMPSH

A Sunnyvale man fled Mountain View police after pharmacists at a local drugstore reported that he was attempting to collect what they suspected was a forged prescription for painkillers, police said. Shortly after 6 p.m. on Nov. 2, Maurice Perkins allegedly attempted to obtain 180 tablets of the drug oxycodone at the Walgreens at Grant Road and El Camino Real, according to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. The pharmacist called the police to tell them she had reason to believe the prescription was forged, since she knew the doctor’s office listed was no longer in business, Wylie said. Perkins was just leaving the store when police arrived, she said. When officers attempted to detain him, he fled across Grant

Road, hopped two walls and darted into rush hour traffic on El Camino Real. In the middle of the road Perkins spotted another officer waiting for him on the opposite side of El Camino and stopped running, Wylie said. Officers tackled Perkins in the first lane of eastbound El Camino, which had been blocked by another officer’s cruiser. No weapons were used in the arrest. Police found marijuana on Perkins, which “he did not have a prescription for,� Wylie said. Perkins complained of knee pain and a cut on his arm, but declined transport from medical officials who inspected his injuries, she said. An arresting officer suffered a scuffed knee but also declined medical treatment. Perkins has been charged with resisting arrest, burglary, generation and use of a forged prescription and possession of marijuana, according to Wylie. —Nick Veronin

t was nearly set for demolition or removal, but now the 1880s Bakotich house on Calderon Avenue may be preserved along with a new senior housing project on the property. The tree-shrouded Bakotich house, known as the city’s second oldest home, would be restored to its original, smaller

the 1.3-acre property at 445 Calderon Ave. under the latest proposal from the Mountain View Co-housing Community. Moving the home that the Bakotich family lived in for the better part of a century would make way for a new senior housing community: a three story condominium building with 19 units, shared recreation spaces and an

An effort earlier this year to have the Victorian farmhouse house moved, possibly to a vacant lot in the Shoreline West neighborhood, did not pan out, as the prospective owner said it would have been too costly, said Susan Burwen.

Co-op preschool ‘running out of time’ By Nick Veronin

T

he Los Altos Parent Preschool is still on the hunt for a new home after being notified earlier this year that its lease on the Los Altos High School grounds would end next summer. Parents involved in the 56-year-old cooperative preschool made another plea to the board of trustees of the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District on Monday, asking them to reconsider their decision to terminate the lease. “It’s beyond comprehension to me that there is no space to be made,” Dara Tynefield, board president emeritus for the preschool, told the trustees and district administration at the Nov. 8 meeting. She called the board’s action “a bad decision for the community at large.” District trustees and administration offered their condolences and said they would be happy to help find a new location for the preschool before unanimously voting to terminate the lease by June 15, 2011. “I think we’ve done the best we can in a bad situation,” said board member Julia Rosenberg. Tynefield said that the news is unfortunate, since the preschool has been in the community so long and provides needed services at affordable rates. “It’s not surprising,” she said. “It’s still disheartening.” The preschool provides preschool services to about 60 families, but “this isn’t just about the kids,” Tynefield said. Because it is a cooperative, it charges lower tuition rates than other local preschools. It is also a part of

Los Altos High and the district adult schools’ child development curriculum — parents and high school students who work at the cooperative earn credits in child development. If the preschool is forced to move outside of the district, this component would be lost, Tynefield said. Low-cost lease Currently, the preschool pays no rent for the land it uses on the Los Altos High School grounds. Finding a new location, within district boundaries, that will provide space for free or at below-market rates is posing a significant challenge for the Los Altos Parent Preschool. Tynefield told the district officials that the preschool has been in talks with more than 60 churches, city officials from Mountain View and Los Altos, Foothill College, El Camino Hospital, other preschools and multiple non-profit organizations. Securing a free or below-market lease rate is just as critical as the parent-participation model to keeping tuition low, Tynefield said. If the Los Altos Parent Preschool were to pay market rates for their operation, it would “kill the co-op nature” of the program. She said that people would not be willing to pay normal preschool rates and still take on the duties required of parents at the preschool — about one full day each week, on average. Los Altos Parent Preschool had to overcome a hurdle last year after cuts were made at the state level to adult education, forcing the cooperative to raise its tuition. See PRESCHOOL, page 12

downtown businesses, unless those businesses protest it en masse. The consensus emerging among city officials is that there is very little to cut from the city’s budget after several years of cutbacks. The city is functioning on a “skeleton crew” said Beverly Stenson, fiscal services manager for the police department. “At some point (the city) is so streamlined there’s no streamlining to be done — a point of diminishing returns,” said Mayor Ronit Bryant.

CELL TOWER

pre-school may lose enrollment because of it. Pastor Tim Boyer said a committee of church members had been discussing the proposal since July. “We wouldn’t do anything on this campus that would hurt God’s children,” Boyer said. After examining research compiled by the cell phone company and having discussed the issue with church members, Boyer said he was confident the cell phone antennas were safe.

Raising taxes significantly is not among the immediate strategies the council adopted, although a potential long term strategy is a voter-approved increase of 1 percent to the city’s 3-percent utility user’s tax on gas, electricity and phone use, which would raise $2 million a year. The city could also ask voters to increase sales or hotel taxes. Council members said the city should more aggressively try raising revenues through economic development. For example, the city has recently purchased land at the corner of Moffett Boulevard and Highway 101 that city officials would like

to turn into a shopping center that would produce sales tax revenue. “The city has cash, and I would like to see us make more of an investment in the city’s future,” said council member Jac Siegel. Stenson, president of the Eagles, a union that represents mid-level city employees, said her union was disappointed that they were not consulted by city management about the strategies the council adopted, saying that the city “put the cart before the horse.”

“I would be more concerned with that (cell phone) in your hand that I would be with that (cell phone tower) on top of the church.” Boyer declined to say how much the church would be paid to host the antennas, saying, “I don’t think that’s important.” He said the reason for allowing the antennas was more to “provide a service” especially since the site is within sight of El Camino Hospital. The proposal on the zoning administrator’s agenda for Wednesday, Nov. 10, is for “a

wireless communications facility within a new steeple feature on the roof of an existing church, including a GPS antenna, three microwave dishes, three panel antennas/RRUs and one equipment cabinet in a fence enclosure.” The zoning administrator will make a final decision, unless it is appealed to the City Council.

least right now, is that the world is moving toward wireless,” said Hope, assistant superintendent of personnel and technology for the district. “I would venture to guess that before too long there will be more wireless connectivity than wired.” In anticipation of a new wireless world, Hope has been working with two local consulting firms, to see which can come up with the best plan for the district. The project is scheduled to begin in December. The successful contractor will be able to build a network for the district that will allow for very high volumes of wireless traffic — for both students and teachers — and at the same time be easily expandable, should the need arise for more bandwidth as student population and use of wireless technology grows. Hope has told both contractors that the new network must be able to support all normal wireless activity on the high school campuses — which is already substantial — while at the same time have the capability to allow an auditorium filled with 300 students “to push the ‘enter’ button at the same time and get access.” The network would blanket most of each campus, even stretching to

parts of the athletic fields. Demand for such a network is already apparent at district high schools, Hope said. Physical education teachers who have purchased their own iPads have said they would like to be able to use the devices to access the district’s digital attendance system out on the football fields; the school’s laptops, which teachers may check out for Internet-based activities, are a hot commodity. The new network may also provide the base for a district-wide voice over Internet protocol — or VoIP — phone system. VoIP phones transmit voice data over the Internet, instead of via land lines or cellular towers and satellites. If such a system were installed, teachers would carry hand-held devices, similar in size to cell phones, but would place calls over the district’s VoIP network. Hope said he is not worried about increased wireless bandwidth contributing to greater on-campus distractions. Most students have access to the Internet on cell phones anyway, he noted. In the classroom, teachers are responsible for ensuring students stay focused; and in the hallways and during lunch, students wouldn’t be able to do more than what they normally do now, he said. V

Montgomery had noticed that some students would turn in handwritten essays, but said it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t click until the end of his first year in high school, when he found out that one of his English classmates lived in a home without a computer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had never, at least consciously, encountered someone who had never used a computer before,â&#x20AC;? he said. The discovery made an impression on Montgomery, who began

Regular RAB meetings are open to the public and the Navy encourages your involvement. To review documents on Moffett Field environmental restoration projects, please visit the information repository located at the Mountain View Public Library, 585 Franklin St., Mountain View, CA 94041, (650) 903-6337.

discussing it with his friend, Tyler Stout, another senior at Los Altos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ever since I was little, I have had unlimited access to a computer,â&#x20AC;? Stout wrote in an e-mail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was not fair to these kids that they were underperforming simply because they lacked proper tools.â&#x20AC;? And so, toward the end of their sophomore year, Montgomery and Stout, friends since eighth grade, decided to take action. They founded Silicon for Society â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a registered non-profit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and began collecting old desktops and laptops from families who no longer needed them. Montgomery, the computer whiz of the pair, set up shop in his bedroom, where he pulls the computers apart, cleans their components, installs operating systems and software, and recycles the parts that are too old or broken. Stout, who has had an interest in philanthropy from a young age, began writing grants and did the legwork to get the project under the umbrella of the Los Altos Community Foundation, a local charitable organization. In the early stages of Silicon for Society, Stout realized that not only had some students never owned a computer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some had never used the computer programs that came as second nature to him and Montgomery. Stout came up with the idea of providing free tutoring classes to teach digital newcomers the basics of computer operations. Montgomery and Stout now require computer recipients to complete a rudimentary skills course before they are allowed to take the machines home. Students learn how to use the Linux operating system installed on all Silicon for Society computers, and are shown

the basics of Internet search, word processing, slide shows and spreadsheets. Montgomery estimates he and Stout spend about six hours each week tutoring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know what they were missing,â&#x20AC;? Montgomery said. These computers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only adding to students academic capabilities; having Internet access adds another dimension of social interaction to these studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives. They can laugh along with their other friends over a recent YouTube meme or share interesting links on Facebook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you could see the look on these students faces (when they get their first computer), thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of worth it in itself.â&#x20AC;? In many cases, Montgomery said, the computer ends up being used by the whole family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty cool, actually, to see everybody in the family gathering around looking at this thing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You fire it up and then, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh! Wow!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Because all the computers are donated by the community, Silicon for Society has a very low overhead. Grants are used to pay for printing instructional materials or to replace components that are either missing or beyond repair. By using Linux and the accompanying suite of free applications, Montgomery and Stout donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about expensive licensing fees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work without Linux,â&#x20AC;? Montgomery said. So far, Montgomery estimates Silicon for Society has repaired and donated about 30 computers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a mix of laptops and desktops â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to students at Mountain View and Los Altos high schools. Some of the computers have also gone to students at Almond Elementary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a community element to it,â&#x20AC;? Montgomery said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people feel like they are doing something important when they help somebody out locally.â&#x20AC;? Montgomery said he would like to start his own business one day. Stout plans to major in economics. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely sure what will become of their project after this year, although Stoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger brother has expressed interest in taking over. If one or both teens end up going to college locally, they may continue donating computers. Both teens said that they hope whatever they end up doing after college will benefit society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever anyone can do to improve their community or a fellow individual makes a huge difference,â&#x20AC;? Stout wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silicon for Society allows me to use the technology that I love to help people to do things with their life,â&#x20AC;? Montgomery said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do that in my career, as well. If I could do that, it would be really fulfilling.â&#x20AC;? Anyone interested in donating a computer can contact Montgomery and Stout at siliconforsociety@ gmail.com or 415-881-7342. V

bottle up your grandfather and literally just pour it over our educators right now that are trying to reach these young students. Your grandfather was the essence of what an educator should strive to be.â&#x20AC;? Klein was closed as student enrollment dropped in the late 1970s and is now the site of Klein Park. DeBolt also served as principal at Huff Elementary School, Castro Elementary School, Bubb Elementary School and was vice principal at Graham Middle School. The larger community benefited from DeBoltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership style as well as he served on 14 boards and committees throughout the years, including the board of the Community Services Agency from 1976 to 1985. Local historian DeBolt had been president of the Mountain View Historical Association when the Navy decommissioned Moffett Field in 1994. The historical associations of Mountain View and Sunnyvale were contacted to help preserve the historical artifacts that were in various collections on the former Naval base. DeBolt formed the board of the Moffett Field Historical Society and served as its founding president. His naval experience and lifelong love of military planes and ships made him a natural fit for the job and he was proud of having been involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a natural president of boards, anything he joined he was president,â&#x20AC;? said his wife Carol Harris. In 1988 he was a founding board member of Mountain View Community Television, on which he later had his own talk show, called City View. He interviewed local figures, from his fly fishing neighbor to the last surviving sailors of the U.S.S. Macon, the massive airship stationed at Moffett Field in the 1930s. In the mid-1980s he was appointed to the downtown revitalization commission, and when major improvements were finished on Castro Street he proudly showed off what the city had accomplished to his extended family. At one point he also wrote a pamphlet, a walking history tour of downtown, which is still circulated. Born in 1927, DeBolt grew up during the Depression in Santa Maria and spent his summers on his grandparentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm in Lompoc. As a young man he was a See DEBOLT, page 11

What:

Second Round Design Workshops

Where:

Nov. 17, 2010, 6:30-8:30 p.m. (Blach School) Blach School, Multi-purpose Room 1120 Covington Road, Los Altos, CA 94024 Nov. 18, 2010, 6:30-8:30 p.m. (McKelvey Park) City of Mountain View, Council Chambers 500 Castro Street, Mountain View, CA 94039

!   

Please join the Santa Clara Valley Water District for second round design workshops regarding proposed flood detention areas at Blach School and McKelvey Park. Each meeting will focus on one proposed detention area. You are welcome to attend one or both of the workshops. The purpose of these meetings is to update interested members of the public on revisions made to the conceptual site designs based on feedback received at the initial design workshops held in September 2010. Staff from the water district design team will provide a current project overview and solicit further public input.

 ## "

  

 

The flood detention areas would capture peak flood flows that would currently overtop the creek banks during heavy rainstorms. The flood waters captured at the height of the storm runoff would be later released back into the creek and the impacted flood basins would be restored once stored waters have receded. 11/2010_GS

the property last year with the help of investors. The restored house would be used as a guesthouse for the seniors, reducing the size of the condo building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it will be a nice addition,â&#x20AC;? Burwen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives a sense of entrance.â&#x20AC;? The proposal is good news to city officials, who were â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to find ways to encourage the house to be part of the project,â&#x20AC;? said zoning administrator Peter Gilli earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes it an attractive project,â&#x20AC;? said council member Jac Siegel, who wanted the city to buy and preserve the house after Anne Bakotich passed away in 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes it something people are proud to have in their city.â&#x20AC;? The cost of restoring and moving the historic house is unknown, Burwen said, but preserving it will save a significant amount of money on an environmental impact report that would have been necessary before demolishing it. In the previous proposal, costs to buy a condo ranged from $750,000 for a 1,370-square-foot unit to $1.25 million for a 2,050-square-foot unit. An underground parking garage and an elevator have already pushed up prices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the critical issue,â&#x20AC;? Gilli said earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it becomes so expensive that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attract buyers, the whole project stops.â&#x20AC;? To reduce the size of the 1,700square-foot house, some more recent additions made to the rear would be removed. Burwen said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;80 percent of the original houseâ&#x20AC;? would be preserved. It would also drop several feet in height as it will be placed on a lower foundation. There are 10 senior households seriously committed to buying into the project, Burwen said, and many more are interested. She says the experience has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;gratifyingâ&#x20AC;? so far.

He joined the Navy just as World War II was ending in 1945. He served for three years as an electrician on the U.S.S. Diphda, a Navy supply ship. He was the projectionist on the ship and faced unhappy sailors when he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a decent movie. On the Diphda he sailed all over the Pacific Ocean to such places as Shanghai, Seattle, the Philippines and Point Barrow north of the Arctic Circle, all the while keeping a diary about his experiences. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make a point of exploring places while on breaks, met people at church functions, and hitch-hiked to

cities all over the West Coast, visiting museums and movie theaters. He continued as a Navy reservist for 35 years, becoming a chief warrant officer. With the financial aid of the GI Bill, he attended junior college in Santa Maria, majoring in science, and then attended the University of California Santa Barbara, where he received a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in education. He had always wanted to work in schools, taking inspiration from his father, a teacher who died when DeBolt was 13. He later earned a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in educational administration

from San Jose State University. He arrived in Mountain View in the early 1950s after he was recruited to teach at Green Gables elementary school in Palo Alto. He and his first wife, the late Jacquetta DeBolt, bought a house on Laura Lane in the Monta Loma neighborhood and had two sons, Chris and Geoff DeBolt. They moved a few years later to a newly constructed home in Waverly Park on Franklin Avenue where he lived until Nov. 3, the day he died with family at his side. He is survived by his sons Geoff and Chris, his grandsons

Daniel and Jason, an employee of Google in Mountain View, his great-grandson Isaac DeBolt and the family of his wife Carol Harris: Cyrus Harris, Roxanne Boyle, Eric Boyle and Quincy Boyle. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to the Henry and Maria Holt Scholarship Memorial Fund, West Bay Opera, 221 Lambert Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94306. V

for Prospective Students and Families

Wednesday, Nov. 17th, 2010 at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4th, 2010 at 10 a.m. For information and to R.S.V.P. contact Admissions at 650. 851. 8223

If it has to raise tuition again, Tynefield said, retaining current attendance would be difficult and recruiting new families would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;impossible.â&#x20AC;? The preschool offers multiple programs for different age groups with tuition ranging from $1,900 to $3,600 annually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simply, we cannot afford commercial rents and offer the quality program we do, at an accessible tuition,â&#x20AC;? she said. For comparison, a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tuition for Wonder World Preschool in Mountain View is $950 for weeklong, half-day programs for twoand three-year-olds; tuition for Action Day Primary Plus preschool in Mountain View can run as much as $1,524 per month for the prekindergarten age bracket. The adult-education component makes the preschool even more indispensable, Tynefield said. The training Los Altos Parent Preschool provides to high school students and local parents ends up benefiting the community. If the cooperative goes away the community will lose â&#x20AC;&#x153;affordable quality preschool and parent education, and a foundation of volunteering in education, not to mention a multi-generational history,â&#x20AC;? Tynefield said. While the hard deadline for the cooperative to move isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until next summer, Tynfield said that if the preschool doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have something solid lined up by January it will be hard to convince families to sign up during the registration, which begins in February for most area preschools. High school growth â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known for a couple of years that we were going to need that space,â&#x20AC;? Barry Groves, district superintendent, said, noting that teachers are already sharing classes. Over the next 10 years, Groves and the board anticipate the district will grow by 25 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to use that site.â&#x20AC;? That translates to about 450 additional high school students at Los Altos by 2020, according to Joe White, superintendent of business services for the district. He said that the district would like to use the 15,000 square feet now occupied by the preschoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking area, playground and portable, to accommodate that growth. Groves said the district plans to use the preschoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s space for vocational training courses for Los Altos High School. Both Groves and Rosenberg have worked with the preschool to try to find a new site within the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borders. Groves said that the district does have an interest in maintaining the educational opportunities the preschool provides the adult school and the high school. Tynefield said she wishes the district would do more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running out of time,â&#x20AC;? she said. V

A

study says that deterring one at-risk youth from a life of crime saves an estimated $2.6 million to $5.3 million. In that equation, Friends for Youth is likely an extremely cost-effective program. For the past 30 years, this group has paired at-risk youths ages 8 to 17 with mentors, serving over 1,770 youth throughout the Peninsula and South Bay. Youths referred to the program often have multiple risk factors,

such as having an incarcerated parent, being at risk for gang involvement, being bullied or bullying and not reaching their full potential at school. The group has seen an increase in referrals in recent years as the bad economy has put an increased strain on families. In response, Friends for Youth

has launched the Mentor Now Initiative, which has accelerated the application process, doubled the number of information and training sessions offered and reimbursed new volunteers for fingerprinting costs. The initiative also strives to find more male mentors. “Since we have more boys referred than girls, we need more male mentors. Through this initiative, we hope to put the men back in mentoring!” says Rebecca Duran, program director of mentoring services at Friends for Youth. New mentors need not have any particular skills or experience; they can be of any profession or age. After attending a one-hour information session and a six-hour training session, the mentors, or “Senior Friends,” will be matched with a “Junior Friend.” “Many factors go into a quality match,” explains Duran. “We look at characteristics that might be shared such as hobbies, personalities, number of siblings, and career interests.” The pair commits to meeting weekly for one year.

Crowd sourcing for best recommendations By Angela Hey Pence

A

mazon.com gives customers great recommendations based on their buying behavior and interests. In September 2009, Netflix awarded a prize of $1 million to the team that wrote the best software for recommending movies. The competition lasted nearly three years with competitors sharing results online. The winning solution is described in three technical papers on www.netflixprize. com. This has stimulated development of software to help people make optimal choices — recommendation engines. Where do you look to choose local businesses, like restaurants, shops and theaters? Websites like Yelp, Google and Trip Advisor rank establishments using star ratings. Five stars is good, one star is bad. A coffee shop that gets five stars from teenagers texting on cell phones may get low ratings from professionals working on laptops. Bizzy (www.bizzy.com) thinks it has a better way to help consumers choose businesses. I met with Bizzy’s founder and president, Gadi Shamia, and Ryan Kuder, its vice president of marketing, at Red

Rock Coffee. Gadi sold a company to SAP, where he focused on small businesses, and Ryan has worked at Yahoo! and eBay. More than a coffee house, Red Rock offers concerts, a book club, technical meetings and open mic nights. So Bizzy also hopes to help local businesses like Red Rock get news out about happenings, gatherings and events. Bizzy gives consumers recommendations by finding others with similar tastes. So if I like Red Rock and Books Inc. and someone else likes Red Rock, Books Inc. and Shoreline Park, then Bizzy might recommend I visit Shoreline Park. Bizzy relies on crowd sourcing. In the first 72 hours of operation, Bizzy users shared over 40,000 businesses in 46 states. With over half a million businesses supplying food and drink in the United States, it wants millions of users to enter quality recommendations. See HEY TECH, next page

Bizzy’s system, which is currently in beta test, will ask you twenty questions. You decide whether to answer them. For example, if you don’t run, skip the question that asks you for the best running gear shop. I tried Bizzy and after answering questions, it recommended Chinese restaurant Chef Chu’s, kitchen store Williams-Sonoma and department store NeimanMarcus (I prefer Nordstrom). Bizzy is entering a very crowded space. Urbanspoon, Open Table and Foodspotting are just some of the iPhone apps that I use to find restaurants. Bizzy will soon have a mobile application. Like Twitter, Bizzy is quite open — it reveals those with similar interests and their recommendations. It could evolve to compete with dating websites Match.com and eHarmony, but Bizzy officials doesn’t see that in their plans. Bizzy has 15 employees and is wholly-owned by ReachLocal, a southern Californian company. Gadi says this allows him to concentrate on building the business, rather than raising startup capital. So why did he decide to locate in Mountain View? Good transportation, easy parking and a vibrant downtown that attracts talent from

both San Francisco and San Jose, he said. Every vendor needs a good recommendation engine, and many big companies, like Amazon and Netflix, have them already. Bizzy hopes to help the little guys. Gadi and Ryan have set Mountain View Voice readers a challenge. Can we get 1,000 people in Mountain View to provide recommendations to Bizzy in a week? Angela Hey can be contacted at amhey@techviser.com and followed on Twitter at amhey. V

The goal is for the pair to develop a natural friendship. In fact, 90 percent of Friends for Youth pairings continue beyond a year, which far exceeds the 30-60 percent success rate typically seen. As a result, Friends for Youth has developed a mentoring institute to share its best practices with organizations nationwide. One pair of friends who have

Kittens flood local shelters Throughout the month of November local adoption centers will be offering kittens for the bargain-basement adoption fee of $10. Kitten season starts in January and often reaches its peak in the fall in Santa Clara County. The race to find a home for the kittens is fierce as local shelters are filled to the brim with felines.

City of Palo Alto Animal Services, City of San Jose Animal Care & Services, Humane Society Silicon Valley, and Town Cats in Morgan Hill are participating in this adoption event. The Santa Clara Animal Care & Control in San Martin and Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority also will be offering cats, but not for the same low price. The shelter felines have undergone health and behavior checks

and have been spayed or neutered to ensure they are ready for a new home. Shelter officials urge people in the community not only to adopt the babies, but to help round up stray cats and have them neutered before returning them to their regular haunts. Materials, supplies, and volunteers are also in demand at these shelters during kitten season. — James Tensuan

surpassed their one-year anniversary is Mountain View resident Alice Bittner and her Junior Friend William. While they do many different activities together, for one-and-a-half years of their fouryear relationship, the pair spent significant time raising money for William’s class trip to Washington, D.C. They sold cookies and chocolate-covered strawberries, invited Alice’s friends to a movie night and buffet that she and William prepared, and asked restaurants to save cans and bottles. “William achieved his goal and was one of only 12 kids in the school who were able to go on the trip. I was the proudest mentor in the world!” Alice said. Alice has enjoyed seeing William

grow more mature. “Originally, he didn’t want to set goals. Now he says all the time, ‘Alice, I have a new goal.’ But the most rewarding part of our relationship is seeing that we both are willing to hang in there no matter how beautiful or how difficult it is,” she said. If you would like to learn more about becoming a mentor or about

the Mentoring Institute, go to www. friendsforyouth.org. Upcoming information sessions are set for November 12, 16, 20, and 22.

No Tea Party in Mountain View

U

nlike the â&#x20AC;&#x153;throw the bums outâ&#x20AC;? trend prevalent in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congressional election, incumbents ruled the day in Mountain View last week. Led by Margaret Abe-Koga, Ronit Bryant and Jac Siegel won convincing victories Nov. 2 and all three will serve a second fouryear term on the City Council. Of the three challengers, Google engineer Dan Waylonis came up with the most votes, but fell far short of the margin necessary to unseat an incumbent. And Measure T, which will update the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-standing phone tax, also passed handily despite criticism from some residents that the city may have violated campaign laws in materials it sent out to promote the measure. Given their strong showing, it appears that residents are satisfied with the current stewardship at City Hall and did not buy into charges that current contracts with city workers are too costly and need to be rolled back. The incumbents strongly disagreed, and say that the city already extracts more contributions from employees for retirement and medical care than many other bargaining units on the Peninsula. Nevertheless, it was refreshing to see a counterpoint to the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance over the last year put up by Waylonis, Greg David and Aaron Jabbari. There is no question that in the years ahead, the city will need to apply considerable downward pressure to employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; salary, pension and health benefits. We predict that council members who take large contributions from municipal employee unions will think twice about doing so. How can council members who vote on employee compensation benefits behind closed doors avoid at least the appearance of a conflict of interest? The escalating cost of employee compensation is a fact of life in cities up and down the Peninsula, where local governments are talking about contracting out some services to escape expensive personnel contracts. Some cities are beginning to understand just how difficult it will be to continue to meet their obligations to pay employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pensions if the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) continues to suffer from poor returns on its investments and the economy does not turn around. On Nov. 2, Menlo Park voters passed a measure to roll back the retirement age from 55 to 60 and reduce benefits for all incoming employees except those in the public safety division. The unions say they will challenge the result, but Measure Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passage sends a message that at least some voters are fed up with what are viewed as overly generous health and retirement benefits. In this election, the challengers were hampered by their lack of experience in any part of city government. This is an important qualification and one that voters certainly notice. Every sitting council member started out serving on a city board or commission before running for the council. It makes sense for aspiring office-holders to gain insight into the operation of the city at a lower level before seeking a council seat. Serving on the City Council, which oversees a budget of some $70 million a year, is hard work. Many members put in nearly 40 hours a week just to keep up. It is a real commitment to represent the city and help guide it through todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenging economic environment. And at least in this election, only those with experience need apply.

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

RISKY TO PUT HOUSING NEAR GAS PIPELINES I am appalled at the lack of concern or response by the city government to the 30-inch natural gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno. Surely the three or four similar gas lines would rupture in Mountain View in the event of an earthquake of 7.25 or more. Anderson Dam would also collapse and every nearby city would be unable to provide mutual aid-trained personnel or equipment. Still, the City Council goes forward with proposals in the General Plan to rezone Old Middlefield Way and Rengstorff Avenue to â&#x20AC;&#x153;high density housing/commercial.â&#x20AC;? There are three 30-inch natural gas pipelines within 500 feet or less of that intersection. The city staff and planning commission are unwilling to adjust the new General Plan to consider the risks of placing â&#x20AC;&#x153;high densityâ&#x20AC;? housing near these 30-inch natural gas lines installed over 50 years ago. And, even worse, considering â&#x20AC;&#x153;city subsidizedâ&#x20AC;? high density housing with knowledge of the gas line locations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as printed in the Voice would open the city to lawsuits for negligence. Donald Letcher Rengstorff Avenue

CALTRAIN SHOULD CHARGE BIKERS FOR EXTRA SEAT Recently, the Voice has published a series of letters by Caltrain bike commuters complaining about inadequate service. These riders all seem to feel, rightly or wrongly, that they deserve special privileges and treatment just because they ride bicycles. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to realize two very important facts. First, Caltrain is having a massive financial crisis and is being forced to cut, not add, service. Second, those bike cars are not free. It costs Caltrain money to purchase and convert them and also to run them on their trains. I have a simple solution to this problem. Bike riders presently are getting a free ride for the space that their bicycles occupy. Caltrain should charge them double fare â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one for their seat and one for their bikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;seat.â&#x20AC;? They would then be paying their fair share. If riders are willing to accept this increase in revenue for Caltrain, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that Caltrain would be willing to consider running more bike cars during peak commute hours.

Tons of tasty choices ARRAY OF STREET FOODS FROM EL SALVADOR AND MEXICO CITY SHINE AT AT CHALATECO By Sheila Himmel

C

halateco still looks like the Taco Bell it used to be, if not the Una Mas it was more recently. Don’t worry. Chalateco is something completely different. On the almost-Sunnyvale side of El Camino, find a festival of cheap, plentiful Salvadoran and Mexico City street foods, made fresh to order. There are burritos, but Chalateco is more taco truck than Cal-Mex. Check out the meats, from sesos (beef brains) to costillo (beef rib meat), suadero (beef, it says) and chuleta (pork chop). Another way Chalateco stands

alone: You don’t pay until after you get the food. There is a certain trust built into the operation. Type on the takeout menu is so small you may need reading glasses even if you don’t normally wear them. The in-house menu, by contrast, offers giant, spiral-bound laminated pages with photographs of food items, described in Spanish and English. It’s still confusing. I look forward to figuring out my favorites and not having to navigate either menu. That could take a while. We made a valiant attempt, but barely dented the cornucopia.

Continued from page 17

Salvadoran tamales ($1.99) are meltingly creamy. Yuca con chicharron, potato-like cassava with fried pork ($5.99), is fabulously crunchy. If you like spice, chile verde is a feast of tender pork or chicken meat in a rich tomatillo sauce. If not, it may be too hot. Sopes ($4.75 with meat, $3.25 without) sort of split the difference between taco and pupusa in

thickness, the masa formed with pinched sides, the better to support a small village of meat, refried beans, salsa, iceberg lettuce and sour cream. Cocktail-size tacos ($1.85 each) involve two soft corn tortillas and a hefty pile of chopped meat topped with cilantro, onions and salsa. The mixed ceviche tostada ($4.75) wisely came in two parts: the marinated fish, shrimp and octopus, topped with slices of creamy avocado, and the crisp flat tortilla. If you’re getting takeout, make sure you get what you ordered.

On one visit we were shorted two pupusas ($1.99 each) but got plenty of curtido, the spicy fermented coleslaw and hot sauce you eat with them. The second time was the charm. These griddled cornmeal pockets, patted into shape minutes earlier, are just greasy enough. Their midsections are combinations of meats, beans, cheese and plants, simmered into paste. The queso con loroco (a Salvadoran herb), and revueltas (beans, pork and cheese) pupusas are standard-setters. Alambres ($7.75) are like cheese steaks — chopped meat grilled

NMOVIEREVIEWS

CONVICTION ---

(Century 16, Century 20) Life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly peaches and cream for Betty Anne Waters, according to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;based on a true storyâ&#x20AC;? film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conviction.â&#x20AC;? But when her brother Kenny fails to beat a murder rap, Waters doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look back; instead, she embarks on a two-decade quest to prove Kennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innocence. To succeed, the high-school dropout will have to get her GED, earn her BA, graduate law school, and pass the bar exam. And all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merely prelude to facing the corruption and bureaucracy endemic to the Massachusetts institutions that arrested Kenny and sentenced him to life without parole. This is a job for ... Oscarwinning actress Hilary Swank! Rated R for language and some violent images. One hour, 47 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NEST ----

(Guild) Lisbet Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, the girl who played with fire, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t literally kick any nests, hornet or otherwise, in this last installment of Stieg Larssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Millennium trilogy. In fact, Lisbet, again played by Noomi Rapace, spends the first half or more of the film in a hospital bed. Though the target of various vicious killers, Lisbet is not as much the center of this film as is investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist). After a violent pre-credits sequence, the action becomes more political than physical. Mikael, together with his editor and occasional lover Erika Berger (Lena Endre) and the rest of the staff of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Millennium,â&#x20AC;? their monthly magazine, digs deep to get the goods on the corrupt government officials and shrinks who put Lisbet into a mental hospital at age 12. Rated R for strong violence, some sexual material and brief language. Two hours, 28 minutes.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; R.P.

MEGAMIND --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Will Ferrell plays the dastardly doofus Megamind, the perpetual loser of epic matches with superhero Metro Man (Brad Pitt, amusingly channeling buddy George Clooney). Always drawn into the middle, reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey) fills the Lois Lane role. The orderly world of Metro City goes topsy-turvy when Megamind appears, almost accidentally, to vanquish Metro Man. What is a supervillain without his hero? This question, at times addressed seriously in the pages of comic books, gets a comic treatment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or, rather, a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;romantic comedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; treatment as Megamind attempts to win over Roxanne, for whom heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long carried a torch. The storyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loose parameters of good and evil put forward the ideal that everyone is capable of redemption. Rated PG for action and some language. One hour, 36 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: EDWARD GREGORY ALTOUNEY, EDWARD G. ALTOUNEY, EDWARD ALTOUNEY Case No.: 1-10-PR-167520 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of EDWARD GREGORY ALTOUNEY, EDWARD G. ALTOUNEY, EDWARD ALTOUNEY. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: UNION BANK, N.A. in the Superior Court of California, County of SANTA CLARA. The Petition for Probate requests that: UNION BANK, N.A. be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on December 2, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 3 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, located at 191 N. First St., San Jose, CA, 95113. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ Jennifer H.
