Council bans marijuana dispensaries By Daniel DeBolt



Ania Mitros, with 16-month-old son Moby Mitros LaForge, says that lead-contaminated debris was left in her yard by her contractor.

ity Council members backed away from approving an ordinance allowing medical marijuana dispensaries in Mountain View on Tuesday and decided instead to ban them indefinitely. While a majority of the council had expressed support for such an ordinance last year, Margaret Abe-Koga and Ronit Bryant were the swing votes needed to ban dispensaries indefinitely in a 4-3 vote. Council members Laura Macias and Mayor Jac Siegel also

Planning Commission on Jan. 19. The commission-approved ordinance would keep dispensaries 600 feet from homes, parks and schools, leaving room for as many as three dispensaries in commercial zones along Highway 101, Highway 237 and at San Antonio Shopping Center. A rigorous conditional permit process was aimed at filtering out problematic dispensary operators from those genuinely wishing to provide a medical service. The ordinance was not presented to the council Tuesday, however, as City Attorney Jan-

The one sentence claim reads “Baseless defamation damaging our business and false accusation plus.” In the review, Ania Mitros of Chiquita Avenue says Craftsmen’s Guild left behind toxic lead debris after renovating the 1930s home that she and her husband live in, endangering their 1-year-old son, with whom she was pregnant dur-

nline reviews are a fact of life for today’s businesses, but one local story illustrates how some are coming to grips with the effects of a bad review. A Cupertino-based construction contractor, Craftsmen’s Guild, filed an arbitration claim last week for $70,000 against a

ing construction. But Craftsmen’s Guild denies that it caused the problem, or that it was significant. And because the family left a bad review on Yelp, the company is now asking for $70,000 in damages for defamation. “They put wrong information on Yelp,” said Craftsmen’s Guild co-owner Matt Amini, who manSee MITROS, page 10

Carbajal won’t face new trial By Nick Veronin


fter two years in prison, Pedro Carbajal — the Mountain View soccer coach accused of raping one of his nieces and molesting two others — is almost a free man. Carbajal was facing a possible second trial on three molestation charges. He was cleared on Feb.


16 of two counts of rape and one count of molestation. However, the jury remained deadlocked on the remaining three, and Superior Court Judge Griffin M. J. Bonini declared a mistrial, leaving the possibility that Prosecutor Dan Fehderau might seek to retry Carbajal on the unresolved charges. On Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 23, Fehderau announced that he

would not seek a conviction on the mistrial counts. Carbajal is still in prison, according to his friend Ellen Wheeler, as he still has some paperwork to iron out with Immigration and Naturalization Services. He was applying for citizenship prior to his arrest. “Although I think the charges See CARBAJAL, page 11


supported the ban. Bryant and Abe-Koga both said they had recently heard opposition from many residents about the prospect of Mountain View becoming the only city on the Peninsula to allow marijuana dispensaries. In December, the Sunnyvale City Council opposed a similar ordinance allowing dispensaries, while Los Altos and Palo Alto also have bans. “We probably would be the first city to do something on this and I don’t know if that’s our place, quite frankly,” Abe-Koga said of the ordinance. “There’s a lot that’s still happening. We need to wait it out a bit.” A draft ordinance created by the city attorney’s office was praised by medical marijuana advocates Tuesday and was approved in a 5-0 vote by the Environmental

nie Quinn said the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office was probably going to create guidelines on how dispensaries should operate as non-profits. Quinn said she wanted time to incorporate those guidelines into the ordinance. Several dispensaries raided by police in San Jose are said to have been operating as for-profit businesses under the guise of being state-required notfor-profits. Change of heart Both Bryant and Abe-Koga supported bringing the ordinance back once such issues were clarified. Bryant, a cancer survivor who had considered using medical marijuana, completely changed See POT CLUBS, page 8

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Peter Maxwell

Is it ever acceptable for high school coaches to swear at their players? “I don’t think it’s appropriate. I think it’s gonna happen, when I was in high school and played sports it happened all the time. In college it’s not so much an issue but in high school it’s inappropriate. It can be damaging to high school kids.� Aaron Dillon, Sunnyvale

“I don’t think it’s ever acceptable for a coach to cuss at their players. As a role model, you have to have a certain decorum and respect and I don’t think cussing at your players shows them either of those things.� Avital Schlesinger, Santa Clara

PAIR TAKES IPOD FROM BOY A 13-year-old boy was robbed of his iPod Touch in front of Clyde’s Liquors, shortly after 3 p.m. on Feb. 18, police said. Liz Wylie, Mountain View police spokeswoman, said that two men approached the boy after walking out of the liquor store, located at 239 West El Camino Real. One of the men had his hand in a jacket pocket and told the boy he was carrying a gun, although no weapon was ever seen. The boy gave them his iPod and the men fled in a brown vehicle of an undetermined make and model, Wylie said. The liquor store’s video surveillance hard drive was full, and did not record any of the incident. The robbers

Schools happy with Shoreline compromise By Nick Veronin



Tests have found TCE vapor above EPA action levels inside the Moffett Field Museum.

Navy agrees to clean up Moffett TCE fumes By Daniel DeBolt


esolving a dispute with the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Navy has agreed to take responsibility for toxic vapors inside buildings at Moffett Field. The deal is easing the minds of people who work in those buildings, including Bill Berry, president of University Associates. Berry works in historic former Navy building 19, which sits over Moffett’s underground plume of TCE, an industrial solvent that polluted the soil and groundwater at Moffett years ago. “Normally I leave window open to ventilate the office while the heater is cooking it,” in winter,

said Berry, who said he can’t help but wonder about the TCE fumes. Under the agreement made between high level EPA and Navy officials on Feb. 9, the Navy is expected to come up with a plan within weeks to test the air inside buildings at Moffett. If necessary, the Navy would have to install ventilation systems or other mitigation measures, costing as much as $200,000 for a 20,000-squarefoot building. Over 30 occupied buildings at Moffett have not been tested since 2003. Moffett Field Museum Only one building on the list, the Moffett Field Museum, has recently shown TCE vapor levels

unacceptable to the EPA. The museum “has been sampled several times since 2008 and indoor air concentrations have exceeded EPA indoor air cleanup levels,” EPA records say. While the museum would like a new HVAC system, “I don’t think anybody is terribly concerned about” the TCE vapor levels, which aren’t necessarily hazardous, said Herb Parsons, the Moffett Field Historical Society president. Museum volunteers typically work four hours a day and “the vapor levels are not hazardous enough to warrant us to leave.” Parsons added that it definitely See TCE, page 10

New city manager? Just clone Duggan, staff says By Daniel DeBolt


n a lively meeting Tuesday afternoon, some of the city’s 650 employees told the City Council that what they would like in a new city manager is exemplified in Kevin Duggan, who is retiring from the job April 2 after 20 years. “If we could just clone him before he goes,” said one city employee. A dozen employees spoke for a half an hour on their noon lunch break before the City Council about what they would

like in a new city manager. Some surprising observations were made about Duggan. Several employees said that Duggan knows the name and job of nearly every one of the city’s 650 employees. At one point, he put on a hard hat and jeans to work with a street maintenance crew, apparently to experience the “nitty gritty” aspects of such a job, said employees Sandra Sanchez and Ray Rodrguez. They said they hoped the new city manager would be willing to do the same.

Employees could apparently sense that Duggan appreciated all of them. Despite the fact she rarely sees Duggan, “He knows my name, he knows what I do,” said one employee. “There’s 650 of us and he could pick any of us out of a lineup.” “I’ve heard new employees say, ‘That’s the city manager. I’ve only been here a week and he knew my name,’” said Mike Fuller, the public works director. See CITY MANAGER, page 6

s local parents have come to realize the amount of money Mountain View schools might gain on an annual basis if the Shoreline Community were to be abolished — or “sunset,” in political parlance — many have called for the special district to be dissolved. However, for a variety of reasons — political and otherwise — both Craig Goldman, superintendent of the elementary and middle school district, and Barry Groves, superintendent of the high school district, have each maintained their support for keeping the Shoreline Community alive, even as they have expressed an interest in gathering a larger share of the tax revenues from the special district. Currently city and local education officials are working on an

children in the local elementary schools. Steve Nelson, who has been a common sight at Mountain View Whisman and Mountain ViewLos Altos school board meetings lately, recently estimated at the Feb. 16 Mountain View Whisman board meeting that the money thestrict stands to lose this year due to the Shoreline Community arrangement could be paid out in $100 bills stacked 9 meters high. At the Mountain View Whisman meeting on Feb. 3, he gave a presentation that described the situation rather simply. “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and flies like a duck, it is probably a duck,” he said referring to the special district metaphorically. “It’s a nice duck. It’s a useful duck. But it is a tax diversion duck.”

‘I think that this is the best solution for this time and place.’ SUPERINTENDENT CRAIG GOLDMAN

agreement that would temporarily provide Mountain View schools with millions more in funding each year, by amending the way that tax revenues generated by the special district are distributed. Goldman said that the new arrangement will give the Mountain View Whisman district $6.7 million more over the next three school years — including this year — than it would have received under the old joint powers agreement. The proposed agreement would immediately bring more money to the school districts from the Shoreline Community and give city and school officials up to two years to come up with a permanent solution to a problem that has been around for years, but has only recently drawn broad public attention. Vocal critic The agreement says nothing about eventually closing down the district, however. And that isn’t sitting well with at least one Mountain View resident, with

Keep Shoreline Even so, Goldman said he is pleased with the progress that is being made and maintains that he has never advocated for completely abolishing the district. “It’s been our position that there is a value in the community continuing to exist,” Goldman said. The Shoreline Community, a special tax district created in 1969, captures almost all of the property taxes within its boundaries, which encapsulate most of Mountain View north of Highway 101. Local schools get only a sliver of the revenues generated by the Shoreline Community. The amount of money schools get from the district is based on a percentage of the property’s assessed value in 1969. However, since 1969, Google has set up shop, the Shoreline Amphitheater was erected, Shoreline Park and the golf links were built over an old landfill, and property values have skyrocketed, from an estimated $33.9 million when the Shoreline Community See SHORELINE, page 11



-PDBM/FXT CITY MANAGER Continued from page 5

Staff members said Duggan exemplified many of the things they want in a new city manager: he’s a “strategic thinker” who is “decisive” yet “flexible.” They said he pressed city staff to be available to the public, something some employees might not do otherwise. Helen Anstead of the finance department pointed out Duggan’s “ethical standards.” And several employees praised his fiscally conservative approach, which has left the city in much better financial shape than most, preventing layoffs. “We might humorously call Kevin ‘Mr. Tightwad,’ but that has been a huge asset,” said public works employee Ray Rodriguez, referring to Kevin’s ability to balance the city’s budget. “You could do all of the other things well but if you don’t have that down, you aren’t going anywhere.” Building inspector and former union rep Richard Ames said a new city manager should have “a consensus, problem-solving approach.” Someone who is apt “more to solve problems and less

to lay blame.” Ames brought up what’s happening in Wisconsin, where conservative Gov. Scott Walker’s uncompromising stand on collective bargaining rights has exploded into massive protests. “You know that’s an example of what not to get,” Ames said, amid laughter. “We inspect the sewers, we put out the fires,” Ames said. “We’re really an integral part of what happens here and we need to be recognized as that. Employee morale — that’s a tough one right now. We’ve got some tough times, everyone knows that. What’s bad for the city is bad for us.” Another former union rep, code inspector Chris Costanzo, said he appreciated Duggan’s “open door policy” which allowed employees to talk with him whenever he wasn’t busy. As council members prodded city staff to approach the microphone, Councilman John Inks said it might be possible that the city council isn’t aware of over 50 percent of what Duggan does. “Most of the day we don’t know exactly what Kevin is doing,” Inks said. “He’s a very hands-on guy.” There are things “we never

hear about because he takes care of them,” Inks said. In response, Fuller said “he has been an incredible liaison between staff and the council, and staff and various other agencies.” Duggan has been a “conduit with the outside world” who is able to decisively say what needs to be done for a project and whether it’s good timing. “I’ve relied on him quite a bit for that,” Fuller said. Ellis Berns, the economic development director, said Duggan is “a great interpreter of policy. How we establish programs and implement policies is critical. He protects us as staff and makes sure we don’t go over our bounds. He makes sure we follow policy set by council. That’s why things have worked so smoothly over the years. He knows the community, he knows the council.” Council member Tom Means joked that the only things staff must not like about Duggan are his “long Power Point presentations and bad jokes.” “I like his bad jokes,” shouted an employee from the audience.

Caltrain hits car near Castro Street By Nick Veronin


passenger train hit a car near downtown Mountain View early Friday morning, Feb. 18, police said. No one was injured, but a young woman — the owner of the truck — was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. Wylie said the woman blew a .20 blood alcohol level, which is more than twice the legal limit. The woman, 21-year-old Kari Olson of Palo Alto, had been drinking in downtown Mountain View before she accidentally turned onto the Caltrain tracks at the Castro Street crossing at about 1 a.m. on Feb. 18, Wylie said. Wylie said that the woman told the responding officer she had been confused at the intersection of Castro Street and Central Expressway, and while looking for Highway 101 turned onto the tracks. An off-duty officer, just leaving the police station, turned onto Evelyn Avenue and saw the car between the two sets of railroad

tracks, Wylie said. The driver was standing next to the vehicle, which she had driven about 100 yards from Castro Street. The officer’s report said that the car was parked perpendicular to the tracks, indicating that she had perhaps tried to turn the vehicle around, Wylie said. The officer told the woman to move away from the car and to safety, which she did. The officer attempted to have any inbound trains stopped, but it was too late, Wylie said. A minute or so later, a Caltrain train came down the tracks and clipped the front of the car. Amtrak engineers and San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies responded to assess the damage and take care of the accident portion of the case, which happened within their jurisdiction, Wylie said. Mountain View police handled the DUI case. Olson was arrested and later released to a sober driver who came to retrieve her from the police station. The tracks were closed for about four hours. V

her opinion about dispensaries. “A year ago I was very much in favor of having an ordinance” and “helping people with all kinds of illnesses,” Bryant said. But when the time came near to vote on an ordinance, she said she decided that “people should be able to go to pharmacy and get it there. That’s what I feel comfortable with. We unfortunately can’t make it happen, but that’s the only way I would feel comfortable.” The council might support putting the ordinance on the 2012 election ballot for voters to decide rather than take a controversial position on the matter, said Vice Mayor Mike Kasperzak to Brian David, a potential dispensary operator, after the meeting. Voters have approved ballot measures allowing cities to tax dispensaries in Oakland and San Jose. Council member Tom Means said he was also concerned about being the only city around allowing dispensaries because it “sets up a market structure that might not be good.” But he also criticized the sentiment expressed by other members that

LOCAL STUDENT HONORED Los Altos High School senior Jose Antonio Villanueva was honored at the 12th Annual National Youth Awards Ceremony by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. At the Feb. 9 ceremony, the foundation recognized Villanueva and seven other stellar Hispanic academics from across the country, along with actress America Ferrera of “Ugly Betty” fame. Villanueva was honored for his ability in math and engineering. Villanueva is ranked at the top of Los Altos High’s advanced placement and honors courses with a 4.22 grade point average. He is the vice-president of the school’s Latino Student Union and the outreach commissioner of the Los Altos High Student Associated Body. His goal is to attend the University of California Berkeley as a civil engineering major. He is of Mexican and Spanish descent. “I believe that just like this organization, it is my duty to give back to the Hispanic community. Once I attain my degree as an engineer, I plan to return to my community to unleash the untapped potential that exists within our Hispanic youth. I hope to one day inspire others to reach for their dreams,” Villanueva said at the ceremony —Peter Maxwell

the city should follow the lead of others in coming up with its ordinance. “We’re in the city, we know what’s going on,” Means said. “You won’t find a smarter group of people better than us to resolve this. I don’t trust they would figure this out any better than us.” Public is split Public speakers were split over the ordinance. Residents mostly opposed the ordinance, including a group of St. Athanasius church members who were concerned that dispensaries would provide the city’s teens easier access to marijuana. That followed concerns expressed by Mountain View police Capt. Max Bosel that having dispensaries could increase the number of cases involving “individuals who obtain marijuana from these dispensaries and resell it, including cases involving local high school students.” Bosel added that “many (dispensaries in San Jose) have ties to illegal conduct” including possession of weapons and “hiding profits.” Lauren Vasquez, a land use attorney who works with San Jose-based Americans for Safe Access, called the draft ordinance “a model ordinance” because the

“conditional use permit process allows flexibility for the practical needs of operators” and ensures “limited impact on the community,” she said. Vasquez said the ordinance improves on the situation in San Jose, where more than 100 dispensaries operate without city regulations. “There’s so much pain out there” for which “cannabis is the only medicine that works,” said one San Jose dispensary operator. Hoping to illustrate how easy it was to get a medical marijuana card, resident Don Ball said he wet to a doctor’s office frequented by San Jose State University students where a doctor pointed to a list of reasons why medical marijuana can be prescribed. “I do have arthritis in this thumb and this thumb,” he said. Ball said that was good enough for the doctor, and Ball showed the council the medical marijuana card he got from the visit. “I went online and in 10 minutes I had a doctor offering me a card” for $49, said Mayor Siegel. “I had to answer only 10 questions.” V

shouldn’t be a concern to museum visitors. Others who work in Moffett’s buildings full time may have more cause for concern. Berry has asked the EPA and NASA for updates on air testing in his building during Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board meetings. “What we want to know is that NASA or the Navy is periodically monitoring it,” Berry said of the indoor air. “Over time the plume does change.” A “hot spot” sits near his building. Berry has received some reassurance from the EPA that the levels are “are very low,” Berry said. “That is reassuring.” Known carcinogen Ever since Mountain View resident Lenny Siegel started the Center for Public Environmental

Oversight in 1992, a handful of people have come to him saying they believed their health problems were caused by exposure to TCE vapors while working at Moffett. But making a definitive link is impossible, Siegel said. “I can’t blame people for ascribing their diseases to exposure when we don’t have a better explanation,” Siegel said. TCE is a known carcinogen, and human health effects include kidney and liver cancer, lymphoma and various other reproductive, developmental and neurological effects, the EPA has reported. The agreement with the Navy came after the EPA filed a formal dispute against the Navy for its refusal to take on the responsibility last year. The Navy had argued that the indoor fumes were the responsibility of NASA, which took over Moffett from the Navy in 1994. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo had also called on the Navy to take responsibility.

“I’m highly pleased to have the Navy respond positively to my request to participate in the toxic vapor cleanup efforts,” Eshoo said in a statement.” The Navy has responsibility for the contamination and they must clean up their mess to avoid potential health risks.” Faster clean up Siegel said the agreement requires the Navy to conduct testing and mitigation first, then figure out who exactly is financially responsible later. Other parties that could have contributed to the plume at Moffett are Silicon Valley computer makers across Highway 101 who used TCE in manufacturing during the 1980s. “From the community’s point of view, we don’t care as much about allocation of financial responsibilities as much as we want to get it done,” Siegel said. “It’s not our job to resolve those issues.” “NASA has been making its way See TCE, page 12

aged the project. “They lie and they are damaging our business. I’m losing a lot of business because of the bad review from Yelp.” Ania Mitros disagrees that the review was false, and said she has offered to correct any false information. Amini claims, “everything (Mitros) is saying is lying.” “My Yelp review falls clearly under the umbrella of free speech,” Mitros said. Debris problem Mitros said that a year ago, she found paint and plaster chips in the dirt outside her back door, where Amini’s workers had piled debris. A store-bought kit showed traces of lead in the chips — not unusual for the paint and plaster of pre-1970s homes. “I was pretty stressed out, I was kind of scared,” Mitros said. “I was concerned whether they would help us clean it up.” Mitros had given birth to her son a year earlier and he had played in the area the lead-contaminated debris was found. Fortunately, she said, doctors found no lead poisoning in her son as it can cause irreversible brain damage in children, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Tests eventually found levels of leaded dust that “may be considered a hazard” in the heating system Craftsmen’s Guild installed, on a backyard deck, and trace amounts elsewhere. The testing and cleanup recommended by a lead assessor, including replacement of backyard soil, cost the family $11,400. Craftsmen’s Guild co-owner Matt Amini denies that his crew left behind any debris, or that what was found was dangerous. He claims that lead levels found were “much lower than EPA standards or in the grey area.” He also pointed to a 2008 lead assessment conducted for the property which found similar amounts of lead in the soil before the project began. Experts disagree Adding to the disagreement are dueling opinions of the lead assessors each side hired, as well as an e-mail that may have been misunderstood as an extortion letter. In that letter, Mitros complains about construction delays and promises to revise her Yelp review “with the goal of sticking to facts and reducing editorializing.” Complaining of delays, she says, “To put it in dollars, three months of my time is $30,000. I can’t repeat the first three months of my baby’s life.” Amini said he took that to mean that Mitros wanted $30,000 in exchange for taking down her Yelp review, and that the family “came up with the lead story” when it didn’t work, he said in an e-mail. “All they are doing is trying a kind of extortion,” Amini said.

Mitros denied that, saying in an e-mail that she didn’t mean to “write between the lines.” Later, Amini offers up to $5,000 for Mitros to take her reviews down, or Amini would take the matter to arbitration, according to e-mails. Differing opinions on clean up Lead assessors clearly disagree on the most costly part of the cleanup — replacing the home’s backyard soil. The state-certified lead assessor Mitros hired, Lafayette-based LaCroix Davis, concluded that “It is LCD’s opinion that although the ‘soil samples’ exhibit a low concentration of lead; the size and non-homogeneous distribution of lead-contaminated construction debris in the top layer of soil poses an ingestion hazard for small children.” But Amini’s state-certified lead assessor, San Jose-based Isotech Environmental, reviewed the same results and concluded that “there were no basis for replacement of soil on the property, because the lead content in samples were well below the established hazard limit.” LCD’s “recommendation regarding removal and replacement of soil can not be supported by established EPA or HUD regulations.” Amini blamed leaded dust found on a staircase and in heating ducts on contractors who did work on the second floor of the home. But Mitros said that would have been impossible, because only carpet and linoleum were removed on the second floor, and lead paint was not disturbed. Arbitration money pit? When the Mitros family signed their contract with Craftsmen’s Guild, it specified their agreement to an American Arbitration Association process in which a mediator may attempt to resolve “any controversies arising out of the contract.” If necessary, an arbitrator weighs both sides of the matter and makes a decision that must be adhered to by both parties. It’s not free — one day of mediation costs $350. Mitros hopes the evidence is on her family’s side and that it doesn’t cost her too much to prove it. “Our contract doesn’t say anything about free speech or defamation, or the extent to which we can express our feelings about the project afterwards,” she said. The bottom line, Mitros said, is that her construction agreement with Craftsmen’s Guild promised that “the premises shall be left in a neat broom clean condition.” Honoring that “would have provided a level of cleanliness that would have eliminated the construction debris as a potential ingestion hazard,” said a letter to Mitros from her lead assessor. Whether Craftsmen’s Guild should pay for the cleanup, and whether Mitros must pay for “baseless defamation,” may be settled in the next few months. V

established to $2.36 billion today. Schools losing millions Goldman estimates that if his district were getting the same percentage of revenues from the Shoreline Community they currently receive — only at 2011 property value levels — elementary and middle schools in the city would see about $5.07 million more than they are expecting this year. Local property tax dollars are important because the school districts don’t receive per-pupil funding from the state. Instead, they receive a larger share of local property taxes. After the Voice ran a number of articles on the peculiar nature of the district, a group of local parents calling themselves “Share Shoreline” began pressing the city council to change the way the Shoreline Community shares its tax revenues with local schools — and the city council listened.

were correctly brought and tried in this matter, given the jury’s verdict against us on three of the charges, and the jury’s conflicting views on the remaining three charges, and (because) we have no new evidence to present, I think it’s reasonably unlikely that we would prevail in front of a new and second jury,” Fehderau, a deputy district attorney, said in a statement. Fehderau said he had spoken with Carbajal’s nieces about his decision. “Although they are disappointed in the result, they too would like this chapter in their lives to come to a close,” Fehderau said. “In light of those circumstances we dismiss the remaining charges.” Maintaining his belief in Carbajal’s guilt, Fehderau said that a guilty verdict would have provided the ultimate closure for the three sisters who claim their uncle sexually molested them when they were all around the ages of 8 and 9, between 2000 and 2005. The eldest sister claims Carbajal raped her, an allegation not made by the two younger girls. “The jury worked hard,” Fehderau told the Voice with a sigh after the trial, “but I’m very disappointed with the end result. I think that the three victims in the case were very brave to come forward and they had nothing to gain from this, except for grief, pain and suffering.” Carbajal’s lawyer, Darby Williams, expressed relief at the jury’s ruling when reached by phone last week, and said that she would work to dissuade the district attorney from re-filing on the mistrial counts. It was not clear at the Voice’s

Although it has yet to be entirely settled, Goldman said it appears that the city, along with his district and the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District, will soon enter into a new joint powers agreement with the Shoreline Community — which will replace the current agreement and provide local schools with a larger cut of the taxes generated within the Shoreline Community. The city claims that it needs much of the funding generated by the Shoreline District to maintain, among other things, Shoreline Park, the golf links and the network of gas diversion lines that pull the methane and other gases generated by the dump out of the immediate area. The right timing Goldman cautioned that because of the current state of the economy, pushing the city into a long-term plan too soon could result in an overly conservative estimate of the property values in the area, which would result in less money for his district. press deadline whether Williams played any role in preventing Fehderau pressing for a re-trial. “Frankly, as far as I’m concerned, there is an innocent man sitting in custody right now,” Williams said last week. She could not immediately be reached for comment on Wednesday. Williams acknowledged that there wouldn’t have been a mistrial if some on the jury hadn’t advocated for a guilty verdict on the three unresolved counts. However, she said that her discussions with jurors led her to believe that those calling for a conviction were in the minority. She believes that many on the jury were bothered by points raised in her closing arguments. Closing arguments In her closing arguments, made on Feb. 7, Williams attributed the accusations to a small but weighty lie, uttered two years ago, which ultimately snowballed into an impossibly tangled web of lies and has perhaps even resulted in false memories. “How do you tell a family for two years that you have been telling a massive, horrific lie?” Williams asked the jury at the close of the trial. The answer to that question is simple, according to Fehderau. The girls didn’t have to tell anyone they were lying, because they weren’t. “I believe the evidence was there to support all the counts,” Fehderau said. While it is true that no one witnessed the crimes, he said that child molesters operate in the shadows. “These cases typically occur in private, where there aren’t any bystanders.” Wheeler, a Mountain View Whis-

Groves, superintendent of the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District, struck an equally balanced tone in his assessment of the Shoreline Community. His district has lost roughly $3.2 million in the last three years and he is “really excited about the possibility of maximizing our share of the Shoreline funds.” However, Groves said, all three agencies — the city, his district and Goldman’s — must find a solution that they can each agree upon. “We are a collaborative community,” Goldman said, choosing his words carefully. “Mountain View has a fairly unique environment, where government, private and non-profit organizations work well together. It’s important for us to maintain that environment.” Goldman said he is confident that in two years time, before the end of the proposed temporary arrangement, that a more equitable permanent solution can be reached. “I think that this is the best solution for this time and place,” he said. V

man school board member who supported Carbajal throughout his trial, wrote in an e-mail to the Voice that “Pedro broke into a huge smile in court” upon hearing that Fehderau would not pursue the unresolved counts.


due to a determined health or safety risk,” economic development director Ellis Berns wrote in a report. The city or a private vendor could then take on the network, Berns wrote. “Google would also agree to donate the equipment to the City at no cost at the time such notice is given if the City wishes to take over operation of the network,” Ingersoll said. As a way of giving back to its hometown, Google signed an agreement with the city in 2005 to rent hundreds of light poles for over $1,200 a year, in order to mount over 500 wireless radios. Use has expanded to an estimated 20,500 users per month, “making it one of the most heavily used WiFi systems in the country,” Berns reports. While the connection is sometimes spotty, signal repeaters costing as much as $70 allow the network to be used inside homes and business for free. “This network has been a great success for both the city as well as for Google,” Ingersoll wrote.


ountain View’s residents may enjoy free Google WiFi for another five years, thanks to an agreement the City Council quietly approved Tuesday. However, Google wants to be able to abandon the system under certain circumstances. “Google would be willing to agree to another five-year term but we would ask that a provision be added that would allow Google to terminate ownership and operation of the network upon 180 day written notice,” wrote Minnie Ingersoll, Google’s principal of business operations, in a letter to the city in January. Google is apparently concerned about taxes or public health issues that could become associated with the network. Under the new agreement, “Google may only terminate if there is a change in tax laws (excise tax) imposition of a franchise fee, or the system requires some modification

efore National Public Radio’s “This American Life,” before television’s workplace mockumentary “The Office,” there was Studs Terkel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning U.S. journalist made famous by his decades of oral-history interviews with regular, everyday Americans. His 1974 book, the matter-offactly titled, “Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do,” forms the basis for the 1978 musical “Working,” currently being presented by Foothill Music Theatre. Broadway glitz and glamour “Working” is not. Instead, it’s a series of vignettes (monologues and songs) taken — sometimes verbatim — from Terkel’s book, each highlighting a different occupation tied together by common themes. From computer-clicking cubicle drones to a firefighter, from housewives to a hooker, a range of laborers take turns sharing the spotlight. There is hardly any dialogue; characters generally talk directly to the audience, or sing lead with backing vocals. And there’s no plot to speak of. They speak and sing of their feelings toward their jobs; the physical and emotional toll the work takes on them; their hopes that their children will go on to better things than their parents; their crushed dreams, if not spirits. Despite often-jaunty music, there is a deep vein of melancholy running throughout. The fact that it’s all based on real-life people makes it all the more poignant. There’s no mistaking that, for many Americans, much of life is spent toiling away at something they despise (such as in the heartbreaking “Millwork” number); simply tolerate; or, as in Kristina Nakagawa’s lovely turn in “Housewife,” feel unjustly defines them. A sense of pride, humor and dignity, too, pervades the characters, such as the stonemason who remembers every project he’s ever built and, most notably, Jade Shojaee’s standout turn as an exuberant waitress. The pure joy and sass of her number, “It’s An Art,” brought

forth cheers from the otherwise politely reserved audience. Todd Wright is another cast gem in his featured roles as a truck driver and retiree, as is veteran performer Linda Piccone, who plays a longtime teacher out of touch with a changing education world. “They say I’m supposed to keep up with the times but nobody ever tells me how,” she sings. While the script comes out of Terkel’s book, the music comes from several composers, including folk-rocker James Taylor, and was spearheaded by musical-theater maestro Stephen Schwartz (“Godspell,” “Wicked”). And though a 1999 revival modernized some of the jobs featured, the pleasant music retains a groovy 1970s lightrock/R&B sound. In fact, the entire show has a fairly corny charm — completely earnest and inherently noble. This is a distinctly lo-fi and lowkey production, well suited to the intimate Lohman Theatre. You get the feeling the actors themselves might have their own day jobs to go to offstage. The players all look like real people, not stars, outfitted in their real clothes, and the set is bare bones — a painted city skyline and a few sets of stairs/risers — with minimal props. Those looking for escapism or high-tech, high-octane adventure from their night at the theater will not find it here. What they will find is a worthwhile little production full of heart, toe-tapping melodies and endearing characters. Though the original was a flop on Broadway, Foothill’s “Working,” if you’ll excuse the pun, works very well. V

Concerns about Despite downturn, marijuana dispensaries donors back A Holiday Fund


onations to the Voice Holiday Fund remained strong this year, with readers contributing more than $30,000 at a time of economic hardship for many in Mountain View and the surrounding communities. Although the number and size of contributions was down from last year, the total amount raised, $64,399, means that each of the seven nonprofits supported by the Holiday Fund will receive $9,199 each, a welcome gift to start the new year. This year 128 Voice readers gave $30,070, which was more than matched by the Wakerly, Hewlett and Packard foundations, which together contributed $34,000. The Wakerly Family Foundation gave $11,000 this year. The top donations from Voice readers this year included one for $3,000, one for $2,500 and several others for $1,500 and $1,000.

Next month, thanks to your generous support, each of the following agencies will receive checks for $9,199: Community Services Agency of Mountain View and Los Altos CSA assists homeless families and seniors with short-term housing, medical care and more. The nonprofit is a cooperative effort of 17 faith-based communities in Mountain View and Los Altos. Community Health Awareness Council CHAC serves Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and seven school districts.

Mountain View RotaCare Clinic The RotaCare Clinic provides uninsured local residents with medical care and medications and is frequently the last resort for this underserved demographic.

s a citizen of Mountain View for over 15 years and a father of two young children, I oppose the approval of a medical marijuana dispensary in the city. Among the reasons is the possibility for misuse of the marijuana obtained from local dispensaries. Patients of the dispensary are not monitored once they obtain the products and can illegally sell or give it away. There is a security risk for our community. The dispensary will become a target for criminals who hope to rob it of the product,

cash, or both. Finally, a dispensary inside the city limits sends the wrong message to the youth in our society. Approval of a dispensary here illustrates to other communities that it is okay to use marijuana even though the state and federal governments have made it illegal. Here are some questions I have regarding this issue: ■ If a marijuana dispensary opens in Mountain View, who can use it to get medical mariSee GUEST OPINION, page 14



WAS PRESIDENT LINCOLN A TRAIN GUY? President Lincoln is known for many accomplishments. Your February 11 photograph shows the Living History Actor recalling: “When he became president, he was inspired to invest in American infrastructure, like railroads.” We Mountain View residents are to take note of the present cry for another railroad —highspeed rail. Ahh, we just have to get some of those federal dollars so we too can have our railroad, even if we

have to crush Caltrain to do it. Barbara Goodwin Middlefield Drive

mitted two crimes — not being legal residents and driving without a license. Such people should be reported to federal immigration officials who should enforce our laws and deport illegal immigrants. I hope that Mountain View does not become a sanctuary city like San Jose and San Francisco, that encourage illegal immigrants to continue living in those cities. Those people contribute to our budget problems by raising costs of public schools, of hospitals, of welfare programs, and of prisons. They also add to our unemployment problems. Charlie Larson Sylvan Avenue

SAFETY ISSUE WITH UNLICENSED DRIVERS I was surprised by the responses to the Voices question of whether not towing the cars of unlicensed drivers was good policy. All the persons interviewed were more concerned with the plight of unlicensed drivers than with the risk to public safety posed by the unlicensed drivers. The Voice reported 17,000 unlicensed driving cases in county courts in 2009. The article failed to mention how many were also uninsured, but I would guess the vast majority. These cases represent a pervasive disrespect for laws designed for our protection. Making it easier for unlicensed drivers to keep their cars and get back behind the wheel only reinforces that disrespect. Maarten Korringa Eldora Drive

PUBLIC SAFETY AT STAKE (Towing unlicensed drivers) is a public safety issue. The purpose of the written and practical portions of the drivers’ test is to ensure that California drivers have knowledge of the driving laws and the ability to drive a vehicle safely. Unlicensed drivers may not have knowledge of the driving laws and the ability to drive a vehicle safely. In any case, they don’t have insurance. The new practice of not towing their cars will allow them to get behind the wheel again sooner, thus endangering the rest of us. Our left-wing leaders are more interested in placating illegal immigrants than they are in protecting law-abiding citizens. Konrad M. Sosnow Trophy Drive

GUEST OPINION Continued from page 13

juana? ■ Who approves someone to obtain medical marijuana? What criteria does a doctor use to decide who gets medical marijuana — someone with a sore tooth or someone with a terminal disease? ■ What type of authorization does the patient obtain from the doctor — a card, note, or what? Can this be forged and therefore abused? ■ With a prescription, how long will a patient be able to obtain marijuana? Is there a time limit — why or why not? ■ What checks and balances will be in place to prohibit card holders from giving away or selling marijuana illegally? ■ The dispensary will be a target for thieves looking for money or marijuana. What does the city plan to do to keep this from happening? Who will pay for this? ■ Will patients be allowed to use marijuana at the dispensary (i.e. smoke)? ■ Why can’t doctors just prescribe marijuana, why do private businesses have to do this? ■ Can’t patients order marijuana over the Internet? Why not just order online and dispense with the dispensaries? ■ One of my concerns is that having a marijuana dispensary will send the wrong message to kids, that there is nothing wrong with using marijuana. What does the city plan to do to educate the public or have the dispensary educate the public? If nothing, then they should not support the medical marijuana dispensaries in the City of Mountain View. Chuck Muir lives on Emily Drive. 14

he first time I stepped into St. Stephen’s Green pub in Mountain View, I did a double take. I thought I’d absentmindedly wandered into Fry’s Electronics by mistake. The walls were lined with oversized television sets airing a myriad of sporting events from across the globe. There were 10 high-definition screens, including one that was a mini cinema-sized 106 inches. With sports coming at me from all directions, I was in my male element. St. Stephen’s Green’s borrows its name from a 300-year-old park in Dublin. The 22-acre common

was laid out, fittingly, by the great grandson of Arthur Guinness. Both owner Erik Barry and general manager Des Whelan hail from County Wexford south of Dublin, which borders the Irish Sea. While the two share Irish roots, they met here, through a mutual friend. Barry, whose day job is in high tech, bought the pub, formerly Fibber Mcgee’s, in 1999. He brought in Whelan eight years ago to manage the spot. Whelan gained his restaurant experience in Dublin, London and Frankfort before deciding California was the place to be. “We’ve gone from a pure Irish pub, catering to Irish people and

blue collar workers, to more white collar office people. From Irish appeal to American appeal,� said Whelan. “In the beginning, we catered to adults, now we encourage families and even have a children’s menu.� Not to give the wrong impression, St. Stephen’s is solidly adult-themed. Besides the myriad of television sets, there are DJs on weekends, early and late happy hours, Peruvian nights, Irish nights, and an online calendar full of events. The pub is on Facebook, has an ATM on the premises, and boasts a late night food menu. There’s a lot going on. Physically, everything is sturdy inside St. Stephen’s Green, from the tables and chairs to the hearty fare turned out by the kitchen. Lest anyone forget where they are, there is a digital countdown to St. Patrick’s Day that starts March 18 and subtracts every day, hour and minute until the next shamrock celebration. The menu is straightforward, nothing frilly, nothing fussy, but almost everything is nourishing and well prepared. The waitstaff, many with bouncy Irish lilts, are attentive and efficient. The bucket of onion rings ($6.50) were plump, crispy, hot from the fryer, and not overly greasy. We waited several minutes for the rings to cool enough to eat. There was plenty for two to share as an appetizer. The fish and chips ($12.50) were generous hunks of cod filets, breaded and fried to perfection, golden on the outside, snowy white and flaky on the inside. The chips, or French fries, were thick-cut, crisp and meaty. I was particularly fond of the fries. Shepherd’s pie ($11.95) was a tasty concoction of ground beef and vegetables in gravy topped with a double scoop of mashed potatoes. It was definitely stick-to-your-ribs fare. The meat was tender, the saucing generous and flavorful, with

plenty of mashed potatoes to mop it all up. Irish Stew ($12.95) was loaded with tender chunks of lamb, onion, carrots, celery, and potatoes in a rich brown gravy. Stews are simple dishes but restaurants have a tendency to overcook them, making mush instead of a dish with color, texture and layers of flavor. Here, it’s perfectly cooked. No pub these days, American or Irish, from Curragower’s in Limerick, to the Brazen Head in Dublin, to St. Stephen’s Green in Mountain View can subsist without a burger on the menu. St. Stephen’s takes theirs to the next step with the build your own burger concept ($9.50). Choices are many — beef, turkey, salmon,

buffalo, Kobe beef for an additional $2.45, and a vegetarian option that is already topped with mushrooms, onions, peppers, and Swiss cheese. Each burger comes with a pile of fries; additional toppings available for a nominal charge. I built a salmon burger with sauteed onions ($.75) and Irish bacon ($2). Irish bacon is made from the back meat of the hog, while American bacon comes from the belly. Irish bacon is similar to Canadian bacon, does not crisp when cooked, is a tad chewier and delivers a load of flavor. There was a trough of condiments on the table to enrich my salmon burger. After I loaded it up, the bun and patty were too thick to eat. I cut it in half and scrunched

the bun to get my mouth around the sandwich. It wasn’t the most flavorful salmon I ever tasted, likely mixed with breadcrumbs and spices. The onions and bacon elevated the sandwich though. I had no regrets. Additional Irish menu items included chicken and mushroom pie, Guinness streak pie, sausage and mash, and mixed grill. Non Gaelic-inspired dishes were chicken, pasta, seafood and steaks along with soups, salads and sides. Desserts are not house-made but I was encouraged to try the apple pie ($5.50). It came with a double scoop of vanilla ice cream. The pie itself, one of those lattice-topped crusty affairs, was just okay, a touch too sweet, a tad lacking in apples. As for alcohol, there is a formidable offering of martinis, a so-so wine list, and solid lineup of draft

and bottled beers. Many food items are 40-50 percent off during Happy hour, 5-6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday — a very good deal. St. Stephen’s Green is what a

good public place should be — reliable, friendly, a hub of activity serving tasty food and drink at fair prices. Despite its Americanization, I think this pub keeps Irish eyes smiling. V

(Century 16, Century 20) The out-of-town conference: What happens there is supposed to stay there. But small-town insurance salesman Tim Lippe (Ed Helms) has hung his hopes on the weekend’s American Society of Mutual Insurance conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Everything about Cedar Rapids wows him: his rental car, his hotel lobby and his unexpectedly black roommate Ronald Wilkes (Isiah Whitlock Jr.). And Tim gets saddled with a second roommate, the man he’s been warned to avoid: Dean Ziegler (comic force of nature John C. Reilly). “Cedar Rapids� doesn’t break any ground, but it pleasantly evokes “Fargo� in its detailed and consistently funny observation of small-town sincerity muddling through a dog-eat-dog world. Rated R for crude and sexual content. One hour, 26 minutes. — P.C.


(Century 16, Century 20) John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) isn’t your average American teenager. He is an alien — one of the few survivors from a distant planet that was destroyed by a violent race of extraterrestrials called Mogadorians. John and his guardian, Henri (Timothy Olyphant), maintain a low profile and travel from town to town in hopes of evading the Mogadorians that are hunting down and killing John’s kind. Three are already dead, and (you guessed it) he’s fourth on the list. John longs to be normal and starts attending high school in Paradise, Ohio, where he meets attractive photographer Sarah (Dianna Agron). John also begins to develop impressive powers and turns to help from bullied school geek Sam (Callan McAuliffe) and a fiercely loyal pet pooch. “Four� should satisfy, if not enthrall, younger viewers. Until the next teen actioner comes along, that is. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and for brief language. 1 hour, 50 minutes. — T.H.


(Century 16, Century 20) For a quartercentury, Danny (Adam Sandler) has swindled women into his bed by flaunting a ring left over from an aborted wedding. A problem arises when Danny makes a love connection with Palmer (Brooklyn Decker), the hottest sixth-grade math teacher in recorded history. Caught with the ring, Danny doesn’t tell the simple lie of omission available to him, but rather fumbles his way into having to produce a wife he’s supposedly in the process of divorcing and, whoops, kids. Here, he relies on the good will of his assistant, Katherine (Jennifer Aniston), a divorcee with two kids. Like all Adam Sandler movies, “Just Go with It� profitably taps into a juvenile energy, but the trade-off is racial stereotyping, loud product placement, and a cruel determination to laugh at people rather than with them. Rated PG-13 for frequent crude and sexual content, partial nudity, brief drug references and language. One hour, 56 minutes. — P.C.
