us drivers and maintenance workers aren’t the only employees of the Mountain View Whisman School District who spend a significant portion of every day behind the wheel. School nurses like Jamie Sax-

ena also are required to travel from campus to campus — often making multiple trips to the same school in a single day. With only three nurses to watch over nine schools, and with a growing number of children with medical issues that require the regular attention of a medical professional, Saxena says

it is a tricky balancing act. There are many days that she and her fellow nurses “are barely able to tread above water,” Saxena says. All the same, according to Sue Barrie, the district’s head nurse, her team of three nurses is See SCHOOL NURSE, page 11

Legal battle brewing at strip mall TENANTS FEAR EVICTION FROM NEW OWNER AFTER RECEIVING PERPLEXING 30-DAY NOTICE By Nick Veronin

shop owners and employees working in the complex, every business there was issued a 30-day notice to vacate. However, the landlord said that the note he delivered to his tenants was merely meant to inform them of a change in ownership; none of the businesses would

GOINGS ON 21 | MARKETPLACE 23 | REAL ESTATE 25 | VIEWPOINT 14

ountain View voters living within the Los Altos School District’s boundaries are being asked to approve a new $193 annual parcel tax to benefit local schools. Measure E will appear on the May 3, all-mail ballot. Proponents say Measure E is needed to address education cuts that have come as a result of federal, state and local budgets being slashed. The parcel tax will raise $2.3 million for the Los Altos School District over the course of its six-year life. Jay Gill, one of the proponents of Measure E, said that the district has done all it can to combat the funding cuts, but has run short on options. “Any additional cuts will hurt what our children get programmatically,” said Gill, who has an eighth-grade student in the district. “We’ve got a significant cut in funding for next year,” said Superintendent Randy Kenyon. “We’ve lost over $4 million — potentially $5 million — from the state.” About 1,000 students living in Mountain View attend the district’s seven elementary and two middle schools — roughly 25 percent of the entire student body. While Gill and Kenyon both say the parcel tax is imperative, an opposition group, led by Los Altos Hills resident Ron Haley, disagrees. Haley, a libertarian, believes that salaries for teachers and administrators in the district are too high. If only teachers would be willing to take cuts, he said, then the district wouldn’t be in this predicament. In March, the district issued pink slips to 52 teachers, warning that 42 full-time equivalent positions could be cut at the end of the

year. Officials from the district saw that as a sign that the parcel tax was needed. Haley viewed it as further evidence that the average overall compensation package for teachers in the district — at an average salary of around $75,000, plus benefits, comes out to about $99,000 — is far too high. Gill and other supporters of the proposed tax point out that the average teacher in the district has 15 years of experience. Furthermore, Gill said, those numbers may seem high when comparing them to poorer districts around the Bay Area, but not when compared to other top-performing districts, like the Los Altos School District. In fact, according to Gill, the highest salary in the Los Altos School District is lower than what can be found in nearby highranking districts. “When you really look at the numbers, these are reasonable salaries,” Gill said. “We have great teachers,” Kenyon said. “There are many veteran teachers. It does create stress on the budget, but we value quality teachers and we want to retain them as long as they’re performing at a high level.” The district is exploring a structured system for furlough days and has been working on making appropriate cuts to the benefits packages of administrators, teachers and other school employees, Kenyon said. But that isn’t going to be enough to save all the positions. Gill added that the $2.3 million that the parcel tax is projected to raise will not cover the district’s entire budget gap — which could top $5 million next year. “The teachers want to be a part of the solution,” he said. “We are asking that the community be a part of the solution, as well.” V

Local robotics team heads to world championships By Nick Veronin

A

group of local teenagers is heading to Florida to test their robotics skills in an international competition. The team of seven Mountain View kids, which is calling itself Green MacHHHHine, includes

five students from Mountain View High School. At press time, the group was preparing for the VEX World Championships, held April 14-16 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. Teams compete to see who can build the best robot capable of performing tasks in a

series of challenges and events. “I’m a little bit nervous,” said Mountain View freshman Robbie Kalb. “But it’s exciting too. We think we have a really competitive robot. We think we have a chance to win something.” Kalb has been participating in competitive robotics games for

two years. Building the robots is both challenging and a learning experience, he said. He’s made many friends and, of course, his team gets to compete in challenges. “It’s really fun,” he said. The eccentric spelling of Green See ROBOTICS, page 6

El Camino Hospital hires executive search firm in CEO hunt By Nick Veronin

E

l Camino Hospital’s executive search committee has chosen the international executive search firm Russell Reynolds Associates to search for a new CEO to replace Ken Graham. The committee, led by Dr. Patricia Einarson, a member of the hospital’s board of directors, and including incoming board chair, John Zoglin, chose the firm because of its credentials

in the field of executive search, according to hospital spokeswoman Chris Ernst. “This is all they do; they do executive searches,” Ernst said of Russell Reynolds, noting that the firm had been used to find two “outstanding” executives currently working at El Camino — Dr. Eric Pifer, the hospital’s chief medical officer, and Greg Walton, the hospital’s chief information officer. Russell Reynolds, which has offices in North and South

America, Europe and Asia, has been in the business of executive search for 40 years and will thoroughly vet a number of prospective CEO candidates, Ernst said. “We won’t even see a candidate until they’ve gone through a robust process to ensure that they are an ideal candidate for the position.” The current board chairman, Wesley Alles, who initiated the formation of the executive search committee, said the hospital is hoping to find someone who has

at least 10 years of experience in a senior management position for a public or a district hospital, is a “visionary leader” and who has a strong track record unifying organizations and communicating well with the community. “You have to be seasoned,” Ernst said, speaking generally about what it takes to run a hospital the size of El Camino. There is no firm timeline for when a new CEO will be hired. Graham’s tenure with the hospital ends in June. V

he search is on for money to save Caltrain’s Baby Bullet trains. The express trains have been credited with boosting Caltrain’s ridership since 2005, but they could stop running July 1 in order to close a projected $30 million deficit in the agency’s fiscal year 2012 budget, under a proposal by Caltrain staff. But the rail line’s governing board, the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, urged the agency’s staff on April 7 to find another $3.5 million to save the Baby Bullet service and preserve the current 86-train weekly schedule. Caltrain staff has until April 21, the next scheduled board meeting, to find enough money to plug the budget hole. Caltrain has faced a daunting and financially precarious future for several months. On March 3, the board declared a fiscal emergency for the third year in a row after Caltrain’s partner agencies — San Mateo County’s SamTrans, Santa Clara County’s Valley Transportation Authority and San Francisco’s Municipal Transportation Agency — expressed doubt that they would be able to fund Caltrain to the degree they have in the past. Caltrain staff warned that, as a result, no trains would run during weekends and weeknights, service south of San Jose would end, and up to seven Peninsula stations would close, including Mountain View’s San Antonio station. On Monday, the three partner agencies along with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission hammered together an eleventh-hour proposal to close only three stations and eliminate 10 train runs per week. In addition, 12 stations would close on the weekends. The $97 million in revenues would come from fares ($47.4 See CALTRAIN, page 12

The team will participate in a round of tournaments and side challenges at the Florida competition. The main event in any tournament match is a game called “Round Up,� where teams of robots must pick up rings from designated areas, move over to a pylon goal and drop the ring down on the pylon. Additionally there are side challenges where teams must run their robots through other tests. “There’s a lot of strategy involved and you try to accomplish tasks,� Irv said. “It’s really interesting to see how different teams attempt to solve the problem.� In the preliminary rounds teams are paired with another team at random to work as one larger team in the Round Up games. If Green MacHHHHine makes it to the final tournament, they will be paired with two other teams, but will only be able to use two robots in the Round Up arena. This rule serves as yet another layer of team building, as teams have to make sacrifices for the greater good of the larger team.

Imaginations soar at

Yuri’s Day PHOTOS BY MICHELLE LE

Yuri’s Education Day brought droves of Bay Area children to Moffett Field on April 8 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first foray into space. NASA’s Ames Research Center hosted hands-on activities, including interactive exhibits, workshops and presentations by leading scientists, engineers and technology experts. About 6,000 students attended, touring aircraft, building and launching model rockets and controlling a replica Mars rover.

lucky. If it weren’t for a grant from El Camino Hospital, Barrie would be the only nurse for the entire district. “We’re actually very fortunate,” Barrie says. “If I were the lone nurse it would be impossible to do this.” After shadowing Saxena for half a day it is clear: if her workload were doubled — and certainly if it were tripled — she would be unable to keep up. She makes regular cross-town trips between Crittenden Middle School, near the intersection of Highway 101 and Shoreline Boulevard, down to Bubb Elementary, which is located south of El Camino Real near Miramonte Avenue. “Driving is a part of the job,” Saxena says, hopping into her black sport utility vehicle and heading to Monta Loma Elementary after helping a group of students at Crittenden — first with a set of vision and hearing tests, then with insulin injections. At Crittenden, Saxena huddles with a group of diabetic students, supervising as one of the girls draws the appropriate amount of insulin into a syringe and gives herself an injection. “We have a chart,” Saxena says, explaining that her nurse’s office often doubles as a classroom. She arrives at Crittenden at lunchtime and helps the students track what they eat. Then she supervises as they consult the chart and figure out their insulin needs based upon what they ate. “Ultimately, we want the kids to be independent.” On her way to Monta Loma, she stops by Theuerkauf to pick up a book of “color vision plates” — circular drawings, composed of dots that vary in size and color. If a student cannot see the number within the circle, it indicates he or she has a vision deficiency in a particular color. Many instructional materials are color-coded, Saxena explains. It is important to identify color blindness early, so that teachers can make accommodations for colorblind students and so the children don’t get frustrated and confused if they are unable to perform tasks that require them to differentiate between colors. At Theuerkauf, Saxena meets up with Barrie, who explains that she regularly has to bounce between schools, just like Saxena. Barrie says that currently the school has many children with chronic conditions. There are five children with cancer conditions, six are the recipients of organ transplants, and there are also kids who are fed through a tube, require regular catheterization and, of course, insulin injections. “We’re having more children

with more severe, more complicated medical conditions coming to school,” Barrie says. She says that she sees more diabetic children than when she started 30 years ago. Students with food allergies also appear to be on the rise — the district has more than 50 students who run the risk of going into anaphylactic shock from eating certain foods, most commonly nuts. Barrie is reluctant to speculate exactly why more children seem to be at risk for these conditions these days, but noted that in the past such conditions were less understood and under-diagnosed. On top of that, children who suffered from chronic conditions were often sent to special schools when she began her career. Now, more are brought into regular schools, or “mainstreamed.” Improvements in medical technology play a role, she says. “A lot of these kiddos, years ago, would not have made it through infancy.” When Saxena arrives at Monta Loma, she checks in at the office and after a quick phone call is rushing down the hall to Rayna Shah’s first-grade class to administer the color vision screenings. Sitting in a far corner of the classroom, Saxena speaks in hushed tones with the youngsters as they come up, one after another, and tell her what they see in plates. She marks down results on a sheet of paper as Shah continues with her lesson. These are precisely the kinds of tests that the grant from El Camino Hospital was intended to facilitate, according to Barbara Avery, director of community benefits at the hospital. “We’re very interested in the health of the youth in our community,” Avery says. Before the grant — which provides Mountain View Whisman, along with three other local districts, $200,000 annually — local schools were having trouble simply meeting the essential needs of students with chronic conditions, Avery says. Now, with a bit more breathing room, districts like Mountain View Whisman are able to conduct scoliosis, vision and hearing testing, and have more time to follow up with parents of students — who very often need to be nudged to get their children to the doctor for appropriate treatment. Avery says that the state recommends that there be one nurse for every 750 students. Though the grant has not made that recommendation a reality, it has helped. “Every time I feel like I’m finally catching up, I get worried,” she says, “because I know that is the calm before the storm.” Go to our website at www. mv-voice.com to watch a video sneak-peek into a day in the life of a school nurse.

-PDBM/FXT CALTRAIN

Continued from page 5

The $97 million in revenues would come from fares ($47.4 million), partner agencies ($25.3 million), parking fees ($2.8 million), shuttle service ($1.1 million), rental income ($1.8 million), AB434 and grants ($6.7 million), other income ($2.9 million), and other sources ($9 million), according to agency staff. The proposed budget includes increases in fares and parking fees,

as well as reductions in staffing, according to Caltrain. But board members were not satisfied that the proposed 76-train weekly schedule was the best the agency could offer. Board member Adrienne Tissier, a San Mateo County supervisor, made a motion Thursday to delay voting on the proposed budget till April 21 to give staff time to find an additional $3.5 million to preserve the current 86-train schedule, including Baby Bullet service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For $3.5 million, we can bring all of those trips back. I will not support cutting the Baby Bullet

Do You Suffer From Cancer-Related Bone or Tissue Pain? El Camino Hospital and UCSF are seeking adult patients who have cancer-related pain in their bones or tissues for a research study to determine the effectiveness of a program to help patients and family caregivers manage cancer pain. Participants will receive education in their homes regarding their pain medicines, pain management, and techniques for managing side effects.

or those three stations. We have been able to craft almost all of it,â&#x20AC;? a frustrated Tissier said. Possible funding sources could include the Dumbarton Rail project or SamTrans, board members said. Board member Liz Kniss, a Santa Clara County supervisor, seconded the motion, which passed 9-0. She contrasted taking the train with driving a car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a habit when one gets used to it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that kind of habit we want to encourage people to have,â&#x20AC;? she said. Other board members said the idea of making any cuts puts their stomach in a knot. They said they did not want to jeopardize the existing system for short-term savings that might cause a greater budget gap in 2013. Furthermore, the board may ask the public in the future to approve a dedicated funding source for Caltrain, and their case for sup-

porting the rail line would be hampered without a robust and viable system. Caltrain Deputy CEO Chuck Harvey estimated that 1,000 riders could stop taking the train each weekend due to scaled-back service. Some members of the public who addressed the board Thursday said they wanted the agency to devise a sustainable budget now. But Kniss tried to soften those expectations, saying that all levels of government have had to find band-aids in the current economic climate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there is a sustainable budgetâ&#x20AC;? right now to build on, she said. Though one-time funding is a concern, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important to maintain a viable Caltrain system that can be the building block for a future rail line ringing the bay. Former Palo Alto mayor Yoriko Kishimoto, who spearheads

the grassroots group Friends of Caltrain, Wednesday morning expressed regret that the Baby Bullet service, which makes either six or eight stops, could be eliminated. The slower â&#x20AC;&#x153;limited express,â&#x20AC;? which stops at 12 or 13 stations, would become commutersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fastest option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still faster than non-express trains, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant tradeoff. The Baby Bullet is the reason Caltrain saw a skyrocketing of ridership. The savings in time is needed to make the train competitive with driving,â&#x20AC;? she said. Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn however, said that with the proposed 76-train schedule, all trains during the peak commute will be limited-express trains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will give more riders more choices and may even reduce travel times for some people who are not able to take advantage of the current Baby Bullet service,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Los Altos schools need Measure E

A

s the state comes closer to a financial meltdown, local school districts are struggling to insulate themselves from a worst-case scenario. This certainly is true in the Los Altos Elementary School District, which over the last two years has lost more than $4 million in state funding and could lose another $4 million — and possibly $5 million — for the next school year. Since 2006-07, state funding to the district has plunged from 14 percent to 5.9 percent of the budget and could be as low as 2 percent in the coming year. This comes at a time when local property taxes, the district’s main funding source, have been flat and next year are projected to grow by only 1 percent. Federal stimulus funds, which provided some one-time grants to the district, are not likely to be replaced due to current deficit-reduction mode in Washington. The district saw the crisis coming and decided to ask parents and residents for help in the form of Measure E, a modest parcel tax of $193 — about $16 per month — a year that will help replace some, but not all of the lost revenue. The tax would raise 2.3 million a year, remain in force for six years, and could not be used for administrators’ salaries. Senior citizens will be able to opt out of the tax, if they wish. Of the just-over 4,000 students in the K-8 district, about 1,000 live in Mountain View. These families and all others in the district already are paying $597 a year for a parcel tax passed back in 2002, and another assessment for a bond issue that amounts to about $600 a year on a home with an assessed value of $1 million. Another key revenue source for the district is provided by parents and others who contribute to the Los Altos Education Foundation. The foundation’s annual gift to the schools this year is $2.3 million, a $500,000 increase over last year, which is made possible in part by parents responding to a request to contribute at least $1,000 student. We agree with proponents of Measure E, who say they do not want to lose the formula that has made Los Altos elementary schools among the best in the area. For starters, district students score in the state’s top 1 percent on standardized API test, just two points behind Hillsborough at No. 1. And despite this success, the district spends less per student than the average of the top 15 districts in the Bay Area ranked by API score. And although the district pays its teachers relatively high salaries, averaging $75,000 plus benefits, Los Altos foundation officials say the pay is lower than nearby districts with highranking test scores. Retaining teachers who have spent years in the district and paying them a good salary is well worth the money, foundation officials say. Management of the district is another high point, with Los Altos spending only 1.5 percent of its total budget on administrative overhead, or about half of what is spent by other Santa Clara districts and well below the maximum of 9 percent recommended by the state. In this challenging time for public education, it makes sense to approve Measure E, a modest additional parcel tax that will help the district preserve its academic excellence and low class sizes. The mail-in ballot should have arrived to all households in the district. We recommend voting yes on Measure E.

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

PLAYING FAST AND LOOSE WITH TAXPAYERS’ MONEY I’ve always suspected that the City Council was cavalier when spending taxpayer money. In the April 8 Voice, council member Margaret Abe-Koga was quoted as saying, “Why not take the opportunity to try this out?” in reference to spending over a million dollars on five senior citizens. Among the reasons why not to do this: Mountain View’s expected budget shortfall for 2011, the city’s outstanding debt, cost-benefit analysis, and so on. It’s clear that some politicians lack any sort of fiscal restraint and should not have access to the taxpayers’ checkbook. Dan Waylonis Stierlin Road

SUGGESTION FOR ‘VOICES AROUND TOWN’ TOPIC The five people in “Voices Around Town” of April 1 all believe that illegal immigrants should not be deported. By definition illegal immigrants have broken our

immigration laws, and some of us believe that laws should be enforced. A future Voices Around Town question should be: “How does our community benefit from having illegal immigrants here, raising the costs of our public schools, our welfare system, our medical costs, our prisons, and the unemployment of legal residents?” Charlie Larson Sylvan Avenue

CITY NEEDS TO QUIET NOISY PILE DRIVER I have provided the Voice with letters I sent to the city and City Council concerning the horrendous pounding to which Mountain View residents near Highway 85 have been subjected as early as 7 a.m. starting last week. The pounding is caused by a “pile-driving” machine used in the expansion of the Stevens Creek Trail. It is a city project. The city is free to forbid the pounding before a reasonable time, such as 8 a.m. or later, but the bureaucrats and their elected compatriots at City Hall do not seem to care.

8FFLFOE starter stuffed with vegetables and seafood. The pancake stays crisp on a hot metal griddle, safely encased in a wooden platter. Soon doo boo ($10.95) is a bubbling pot of silky tofu in spicy-hot soup, sprinkled with your choice of beef, pork, seafood or kimchee. The pork was chewy. The best dish we tried was dol sot bi bim bop ($11.95). Cooked and served in a stone pot, this Korean casserole keeps the rice wonderfully sticky at the edges. It is topped with a fried egg (the server asks if egg is OK with you), julienne carrots, cabbage, broccoli, and your choice of meat, seafood or tofu. Dol sot bi bim bop, the menu says, is “most recommended.” It also says the BBQ pork spare ribs are “scientifically tested far superior to psychotherapy,” so who knows about these claims. More scientifically provable, the menu’s green tree icons denote vegetarian items and red chiles are for spicy fare. BBQ beef bul go ki ($11.95) is a sizzling metal plate piled with cabbage and onions that continue to cook, topped with thin strips of marinated rib eye steak. Is it the tenderest rib eye you’ve ever tasted? Probably not, but it is only $11.95. The menu tops out with the Super Rib Combination ($17.95) of beef spare ribs, beef short ribs (cross-cut, kalbi), and pork spare ribs on rice, served with a crisp salad of baby greens and citrus dressing. This mountain of meat looks very Henry VIII, a little embarrassing when being lugged to your table.

The hae mul pa jun, an omelet-like concoction stuffed with seafood and vegetables, is served on a hot griddle. The kimchi appetizer plate includes pickled radishes, cucumbers and cabbage.

Six little kimchee condiments accompanied: napa cabbage with a nice crunch, hot but not overpowered in chile; thin discs of pickled cucumbers; cold potatoes and carrots; pickled bean sprouts; glass noodles. You can also get a prodigious kimchee sampler ($5.95) of pickled napa cabbage, sweet cucumber and spicy turnip. Palate-cleansing, melon-flavored Korean gum comes with the check. Beverages range from soothing ginseng tea ($2) to highly alcoholic Korean soju ($12). Draft beer includes Gordon Biersch Maarzen and Kirin ($5). See HAN, page 18

An offshoot of Hahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hibachi on Ramona Street for nine years, Han Korean Bistro is no longer related to that mini-chain. It is comfortable, clean and pleasant. The usual University Avenue floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto mustard- and ketchup-colored walls with tastefully mounted photographs of Buddhas and temple grounds. As should be in a bistro, you are greeted, thanked and bid good-bye by someone who honestly seems to care.

BASED ON THE BEST-SELLING NOVEL

NMOVIETIMES A Place in the Sun (1951) Stanford Theatre: Sat.-Mon. at 3:15 & 7:30 p.m.

NMOVIEREVIEWS

ARTHUR -1/2

Arthur (2011) (PG-13) (1/2 Century 16: 11:40 a.m.; 1:40, 2:35, 5:10, 6:55, 7:55 & 10:30 p.m. Century 20: 11:15 a.m.; 1:50, 2:15, 4:25, 7:05, 7:15 & 9:45 p.m.

(Century 16, Century 20) Russell Brand assumes the role of booze-guzzling, childlike playboy Arthur Bach, heir to a seemingly endless fortune. Even Arthur’s lifelong nanny, Hobson (Helen Mirren), can’t coax maturity out of the reckless lush. Arthur’s frigid mother (Geraldine James) threatens to cut him off completely unless he agrees to marry Susan Johnson (Jennifer Garner), the power-hungry daughter of a wealthy developer (Nick Nolte). Arthur reluctantly goes along with his mother’s wishes but second-guesses himself when he meets and falls for aspiring writer Naomi (Greta Gerwig). What’s an alcoholic spendthrift to do? And, more importantly, do you care? Rated PG-13 for some drug references, sexual content, alcohol use throughout and language. 1 hour, 45 minutes. — T.H.

Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 (PG-13) Century 16: 11:10 a.m.; 1:35, 4, 7 & 9:50 p.m.

WIN WIN ---

Hop (PG) Century 16: 11:05 a.m.; 1:25, 3:55, 6:50 & 9:15 p.m. Century 20: 11:30 a.m.; 1:55, 4:30, 7 & 9:25 p.m.

(Guild) When we meet lawyer Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), he appears to be a born loser. His aging client base is shrinking, his office duplex is giving him $6,000 worth of plumbing agita, and the wrestling team he coaches is logy and uninspired. Everything changes when Mike sees an opportunity to bring in some extra scratch by becoming the legal guardian of one of his clients, an elderly and mentally deteriorating man named Leo Poplar (Burt Young). This way, Mike can move Leo into a nice rest home that can shoulder the responsibility for daily care, occasionally check in on him, and collect a cool $1,500 a month. A curveball arrives in the form of 16-year-old Kyle Timmons (Alex Shaffer), who’s taken a bus from Ohio to crash with his Grandpa Leo. Rated R for language. One hour, 46 minutes. — P.C.

YOUR HIGHNESS --

(Century 16, Century 20) James Franco plays the ever-questing Fabious, first-born son of the king (Charles Dance) and therefore destined to rule the land. First, he’s to marry his sweetheart Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), with Fabious’ younger brother Thadeous (Danny McBride) lined up as best man. Undistinguished by quests, Thadeous is an increasingly jealous stoner layabout, but he gets more than he bargained for when he becomes part of a quest to rescue Belladonna, who is kidnapped from the wedding by dastardly wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux). Natalie Portman turns up along the quest’s long road, as a woman warrior subjected to ogling and advances from Thadeous. Rated R for strong crude and sexual content, pervasive language, nudity, violence and some drug use. One hour, 42 minutes. — P.C.

Can higher consciousness be measured?

Lu Hugdahl of Mountain View opened up a safe deposit box at a bank in Los Altos in November of 2006. Two years later she went to open her safe deposit box and was horriďŹ ed to discover four or ďŹ ve rings and three necklaces missing. On a police report she estimated two of the rings were worth approximately $1,500.00, â&#x20AC;&#x153;one being a keepsake from a cherished friend who passed awayâ&#x20AC;?, as reported by the Los Altos Town Crier. Hugdahl was stunned.

997 All Other Legals NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: JAMES FRISBEE Case No.: 1-11-PR 168537 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of JAMES FRISBEE. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: CARLOS G. LEGUINA in the Superior Court of California, County of SANTA CLARA. The Petition for Probate requests that: CARLOS G. LEGUINA 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 April 25, 2011 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/ Janet L. Brewer 460 S.
