Google’s growth spurt shapes city NEW LEASES, NEW CONSTRUCTION SET FOR COMING YEAR By Daniel DeBolt

W

ith the economy in recovery, Google is poised for a period of major growth in Mountain View and may soon leave its mark on the city’s landscape with several new buildings. Google has recently redoubled its efforts to build as much as 1.7 million square feet of new offices in Mountain View, including a new campus next to its headquarters that could be as large as 565,000 square feet. And a Google spokesperson says Google is still on track to begin construction in September 2013 on a 1.2-millionsquare-foot complex at a NASA Ames Research Center site that

overlooks the bay and includes company housing, a first for Silicon Valley, as well as child care and recreation facilities. Google now owns or leases at least 67 buildings in Mountain View, according to recent news and county tax assessor records from September. New acquisitions include the historic Pacific Press campus on Villa Street and a large Ellis Street office campus known as The Quad. Google is also rumored to be near a lease deal for the former Nokia campus on Fairchild Drive, but a Google spokesperson had no comment on the matter. Google has announced that 2011 will be its biggest hiring year ever, even bigger then 2007

when 6,000 employees were hired. “A significant number” of those employees will work in Google’s Mountain View offices, a spokesperson said. And Google’s expansion plans for following years indicate that the company doesn’t expect the growth to stop anytime soon. As early as late 2012, a spokesperson said, Google could begin construction on what is likely to be a landmark building. It is slated for the 18-acre, city-owned “Charleston East” lot between Google headquarters and Shoreline Boulevard. Plans have yet to be unveiled, but Google submitted concepSee GOOGLE, page 7

he former owner of a large Evandale Avenue apartment complex has filed a lawsuit against the city that claims he lost as much as $24.5 million when the city opposed his efforts to renovate the apartments after his redevelopment project fell through. Plaintiff Sal Teresi claims that city officials, under the direction of former city attorney Michael Martello, engaged in “capricious and arbitrary conduct” to make it expensive or difficult for him to renovate the 64 vacant apartments at 291 Evandale Avenue, which he was apparently forced to sell in the middle of the recession. As a result of the city’s actions, Teresi claims he lost $4.5 million in rent over five years and $16-20 million from appreciation of the building The issue took center stage in a City Council meeting in October of 2009. Teresi’s lawyer claimed then, as Teresi’s new lawyers claim now, that Teresi had a right to re-roof and repair the buildings without being subjected to a design review process, which the city officials told Teresi was required June of 2008. In the 2009 meeting, City Attorney Michael Martello disagreed, saying that “under their theory they could rebuild the entire complex” without any oversight. Teresi’s troubles began when he had lined up a buyer for the property just before the recession hit, and decided to vacate the apartments before closing escrow, according to the claim Teresi’s lawyers have filed in the case. The sale fell through when the real estate market tanked. After unsuccessfully trying to find another buyer, Teresi needed to rent the apartments again to pay his bills. Despite the city’s orders against it, Teresi got a roof permit through the

city’s website and began work on the buildings in October of 2008, work which his lawyers say was within his rights as the project maintained a “conforming use” on the property. When the city discovered this, the project was halted, the buildings were red-tagged, and a fence was put up to keep workers out. While the buildings sat, Teresi claims unfinished roof work allowed rainwater to damage the interior of the apartments, causing the “rank odor” and mold that city officials later complained about. The City Council voted to uphold the denial of the roof permit to Teresi in 2009. Shortly after the complex was sold, the council approved detailed plans from Bay See LAWSUIT, page 6

TEEN STABBED A teenage boy was stabbed by a member of a rival gang Thursday afternoon, May 26 on Moffett Boulevard, police said. The 17-year-old victim did not have damage to any major organs and is expected to recover. The Mountain View teen was walking in the 200 block of Moffett Boulevard, between Jackson Street and Central Avenue, when he encountered his attacker — described as a “muscular,” 5-foot-8 -inch Hispanic male in his late 20s. According to Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View police, the attacker yelled out the name of a gang and began punching the victim before stabbing him in the chest. The attacker then fled south on Moffett Boulevard. The victim’s friend witnessed the fight from a distance, Wylie said. They asked employees from the Fernandez Supermarket, just across Central Avenue from where the stabbing took place, to call 911. Police never release gang names to the media, for fear of encouraging more gang violence, Wylie said. The victim admitted to being affiliated with a rival gang, she said

his identity and carrying pepper spray – which was illegal due to a prior conviction. According to the police report, Wylie said, officers first encountered Javaid while attempting to track down someone who was repeatedly calling 911 dispatchers, drunkenly rambling about “illegal immigrants.” At about 1:20 a.m., police traced the calls, which were coming from a phone with a 415 area code, to the area of Leong Drive and Moffett Boulevard. Once in the area, officers discovered Javaid in front of Don’s Automotive. Wylie said he was apparently intoxicated. Javaid was walking unsteadily, his belt was undone, he had slurred speech and he was “screaming that (the police) were on private property.” During the confrontation, another man, who turned out to be Javaid’s brother, emerged from the auto shop and cursed at police while egging his brother on, Wylie said. Police determined that Javaid was too intoxicated to care for himself and could not trust his brother to care for him, so they arrested him. While searching Javaid, police found a canister of pepper spray. Javaid was so unruly, Wylie said, that police took him straight to the Main Jail in San Jose, where they learned that the name and address he had given upon arrest was false. They also discovered Javaid had a felony on his record, which made his possession of the pepper spray illegal. Wylie said that the phone used to make the bogus 911 calls was affiliated with Don’s Automotive. However, she said, “We don’t have enough evidence to charge anybody with a 911 violation.” Javaid’s brother was not arrested.

Helping cancer patients track treatment By Nick Veronin

C

ancer comes in many forms, and the right treatment for one cancer patient may not be the best course for another, said Hatti Hamlin of El Camino Hospital. “It may be the most complex disease that one can be engaged with,” she said. In an effort to more effectively combat cancer, the hospital is introducing a new, highly personalized program that assigns case managers to cancer patients with the intent of creating and sticking to an individualized treatment plan. The “patient navigators” will serve both as a physician’s assistant and

an advocate for the patient and the patient’s family, said Hamlin, a hospital spokeswoman. Patients must, among other things, decide which course of treatment they will take, make appointments, negotiate with insurance companies, figure out how they will pay for the fees insurance companies won’t and monitor their diet, all while suffering from the physical pain and mental anguish the disease causes. “The patient at the center of this is just terrified and tired and sick and trying to deal with it all,” Hamlin said. “A patient can just get worn out.” Family members can offer a great

deal of assistance, according to John Holt, executive director of the Cancer Service Line at El Camino, but caring for a loved one can prove to be especially taxing; in some instances it could even lead to rash decisions being made. A navigator will approach each case with an objective eye, Holt said, and make sure that their patients don’t rush into a treatment without considering all options. At the same time, the navigator will be charged with keeping everyone involved in the process — the patient, their family and their team of doctors — on the same page See NAVIGATOR, page 11

El Camino steps up fight against deadly disease C. DIFF IS COMMON, LOW-PROFILE AND POTENTIALLY FATAL By Nick Veronin

A

difficult-to-pronounce disease commonly found in nursing homes and hospitals is a growing problem, according to a Mountain View health official. Dr. Eric Pifer, chief medical officer for El Camino Hospital, said that Clostridium difficile, a bacterial infection that causes diarrhea, fever, bowel irritation, and in severe cases has been known to be fatal, has become more prevalent in hospitals around the country — a

trend he attributes to excessive use of antibiotics and certain heartburn medications. “The bacteria seems to have gotten stronger — more virulent,” Pifer said. Clostridium difficile, or “C. diff,” is virtually impossible to eliminate in the hospital setting, Pifer said, though he is confident he can bring infection rates down significantly at El Camino with his latest campaign against the disease. The disease is contracted when a person ingests the bug, which

originates in human waste and is most commonly transferred first to patient’s hands or the hands of a caretaker during a trip to the restroom. Without adequate hand washing, the bacteria on can easily make its way into the mouth. Pifer aims to bring down cases of C. diff at El Camino through a three-pronged attack: by raising awareness of the disease, by pursuing a rigorous protocol of disinfecting the rooms of patients diagnosed See DISEASE, page 7

Poor conditions cited Having a new owner pleased neighbors, who apparently didn’t trust Teresi. They saw that the complex was allowed to remain in poor condition for years, with garbage littering the courtyard and the buildings in disrepair. Neighbors often said crime went down when the complex became vacant. Defending the move to red tag the buildings, Zoning Administrator Peter Gilli cited “life safety issues,” such as illegal exterior water heater sheds mounted in spaces formerly used as exits and walkways. Meanwhile city staff observed workers at the complex doing unapproved work on the buildings, with workers camping out at the complex in the process, Gilli said in a staff report. “Staff was concerned people would start occupying an uninhabitable building,” Gilli wrote. In 2008 the city reported that “numerous structures have rodent infestation, insect hives along with dry rot and signs of termite destruction. Numerous units lack working bathroom fixtures, kitchen appliances, lighting fixtures and heating devices.”

Other problems reported by city staff include the “presence of rank odor,” likely from a broken sewer line, broken concrete stairs and metal guardrails, missing smoke detectors, mold, unvented water heaters and numerous electrical violations. Teresi’s lawsuit claims that the city opposed his renovation work in part because the City Council spent $125,000 of the city’s affordable housing funds to relocate the 250 residents of the apartment complex. According to Teresi’s claim, “the bulk” of that money went to city administrative costs, which city planners say is untrue. As the Voice reported in 2008, the Community Services Agency administered the relocation funds. The CSA used only a small portion for administrative costs. City Attorney Jannie Quinn said she was waiting on a revised claim from Teresi’s lawyers after several issues with the claim were brought up in court. Quinn had no comments about the ongoing case, but she did say that Teresi still owes the city $97,000 in planning fees for processing his 2007 development request, which could result in the city filing a counter suit against Teresi.

with C. diff and by pushing doctors in the hospital to be more prudent about prescribing antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors — the active ingredient in some drugs such as Prilosec that are used to treat heartburn, ulcers and stomachaches. Controlling the administration of antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors within the hospital shouldn’t be too difficult, Pifer said. However, the hospital can do little to prevent primary care physicians in outside clinics and at nursing homes from doling out such drugs, which Pifer said deplete the friendly, naturally occurring bacteria in humans’ intestinal tract and open the door first for diarrhea and ultimately increase the chance of a patient contracting C. diff. “As a society, our physicians prescribe way too many antibiotics,” Pifer said, adding that proton pump inhibitor medications are prescribed far too frequently to patients who would be able to eliminate their heartburn and stomach pain if their primary care doctor simply advised them to modify their diet. “It’s pretty common for doctors to prescribe antibiotics for bron-

chitis or a sinus infection, when in most case the patient doesn’t need those drugs,” Pifer said. “People don’t like to hear that; they like to go home with a prescription.” Pifer said that it is difficult to quantify with hard data, but he suspects that a large number of the cases of C. diff he sees at El Camino are created, at least in part, by seniors who are on a regimen of proton pump inhibitors before entering the hospital. Although Pifer said that rates of C. diff are low at El Camino Hospital, he believes that Clostridium difficile is something that the community at large needs to be aware of, and both doctors and patients have a role to play in helping bring the rates of the disease down. As consumers, patients can avoid taking over-the-counter versions of proton pump inhibitor medications. Primary care doctors should also be aware of the risk these drugs pose and exercise restraint when prescribing antibiotics. Pifer said that he doesn’t want to blow the issue of C. diff out of proportion.

by accident of birth you have the opportunities to succeed or not succeed. We have a responsibility to the kids who have the least resources to help them.” The MVLA Community Scholars Program, founded in 2000, aims to do just that. By awarding four-year, renewable college scholarships to bright, high-performing, low-income students, Reichert says that the program gives high school graduates the push they need to realize their academic potential. “These are kids who are basically doing all the right things,” she says. “They are working hard, they are committed to their education. All they need is some additional help and resources.” Recipients of a scholarship through Reichert’s program get money that they can spend on tuition, books or room and board. They also get access to volunteer mentors who lead them in group meetings as well as one-on-one counseling sessions. Mentors help students with technical things, such as learning new computer software, as well as with practical, day-to-day living tasks, like managing a household budget. The mentors help the kids with

Ema Macias is the Alta Vista High School student accepted this year. Reichert believes in the veracity of the old adage that it takes a village to raise a child. “We all have a stake in them building a better future for themselves and their families,” she says of the students in her program. “Without the support of programs like ours they really might not have the chance to go to college at all.” Reichert acknowledges that a college education is not necessarily required to live a prosperous life. However, she believes that monetary wealth is not the only thing an individual stands to gain from going to college. “Education is the gift you give yourself,” she says. Vargas, for one, seems to have derived more from his experience as an MVLA Community Scholar than a free ride at San Francisco State. “The scholarship told me that I was going somewhere, that my world didn’t have to be so small,” he says. “I can only imagine what would happen if every kid had that chance.” V

He says he had the realization that there was a lack of management skills in Washington and his new goal would be to merge good management with politics. He says he had no idea that city management would be his career while in college. The idea occurred to him when he met a former city official while working as an administrative intern at a university.

He is married to Abbie Dorosin and has a son and a daughter, 13-year-old Davis and 10-year-old Elana. Siegel said the council negotiated a lower salary and fewer benefits for Rich than predecessor Duggan, who was with the city for 20 years before retiring in April. Rich will be paid $240,000 a year. A $400 a month car allowance is one of the benefits that won’t be passed on to Rich, Siegel said. He also will not receive money to purchase a home in Mountain View, as Duggan received 20 years ago. Rich was selected over 66 other applicants, and had made it into the top three in a round of interviews in early May. Siegel said there was a wide range of applicants, including some who lead larger cities. “Everyone wants to come to Mountain View,” Siegel said. V

CTS Printex Superfund Site Mountain View, California EPA Announces Proposed Plan for Vapor Intrusion Pathway and Change to Groundwater Remedy

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 9 (EPA) announces the availability of EPA’s Proposed Plan to address the potential vapor intrusion pathway and to change the current groundwater remedy at the CTS Printex Superfund Site (Site) in Mountain View, California. The Proposed Plan provides Site background; explains the scope of the response actions; evaluates alternatives for addressing the vapor intrusion pathway; proposes to change the current groundwater cleanup remedy; and identifies EPA’s Preferred Alternatives and the rationale for those preferences. The proposed response action will address the potential health risk associated with long-term exposure to trichloroethene (TCE) and other Site chemicals of concern through the vapor intrusion pathway into current and future buildings that overlay the shallow groundwater contamination at the Site. Although the current extent of groundwater contamination has been reduced over the past 25 years, restoration of the shallow groundwater has not been achieved. Therefore, EPA is proposing to address the remaining groundwater contamination to meet the cleanup goal. Consideration of public input is an important part of the remedy selection process. EPA encourages all community members and other interested stakeholders to provide input on the Proposed Plan. EPA will select a final remedy for the vapor intrusion pathway and a new remedy to replace the original groundwater remedy after considering all comments submitted during the public comment period. EPA Wants Your Comments on the Proposed Plan 30-Day Public comment period: June 3, 2011 – July 5, 2011 Your comments on any of the cleanup alternatives considered, including EPA’s preferred alternatives, are welcome. You may submit comments orally or in writing at the public meeting (see below) or send comments directly to the Project Manager by the July 5 deadline. You are encouraged to review the reports that formed the basis for the Proposed Plan by accessing the site Administrative Record at either repository listed below.

DITTMER’S MOVING The Mountain View institution known as Dittmer’s Gourmet Meats and Wurst-Haus will reopen in a new Mountain View location within the next few months. Dittmer’s caught fire on Jan. 23. It’s believed to have started when wood chips in a meat smoker were overheated and set alight because of a faulty thermostat switch. The store’s numerous customers have been wondering ever since when Dittmer’s will begin selling its sandwiches, sausages and awardwinning meats again. Owner Dittmer Bubert said work was underway to move the store but would not disclose the exact location, saying he wanted no distractions as work goes on inside. He would say that the new store is located on El Camino Real and is bigger and better than the former San Antonio Road location. Bubert said Dittmer’s would reopen within the next few

and up to speed at all times. This, Holt said, will help ensure that everything moves along without unnecessary delays. “The reason we need patient navigators is that cancer is very multidisciplinary,” Holt said. A lung cancer patient, for instance, will work with a thoracic surgeon, a pulmonologist, a medical oncologist and a radiation oncologist in their quest to get well. All these specialists, Holt said, “play a part, and in order to make the right decision, they have to coordinate with each other. They collectively decide on treatment avenues.” Setting up appointments and getting all the doctors on a multidisciplinary team on the same page is no small task, Holt said. “The navigator helps coordinate and gets the patient through that group of people quickly.” While the patient navigator is working with the doctors to streamline the treatment process, they will also be available to answer questions of patients, who may not always be able to reach their doctors. The patient navigator program was given a kick start on May 14, when El Camino Hospital celebrated its 50th anniversary dinner. The black tie “Sapphire Soiree,” which featured a performance from Grammy-winner Kenny Loggins, raised $650,000 that will be used to launch the program. The money came from the donations of 420 guests and a matching contribution of $250,000 from longtime hospital supporters

The Humane Society Silicon Valley is offering discounted microchip IDs throughout the entire month of June. The cost of a HomeAgain microchip is $30, which is $15 off the regular price. The permanent identification chip is administered similar to a routine vaccination, and protects pets with nationwide database. With the microchip carrying the owner’s contact information, any animal rescue agency and most veterinary offices can quickly identify and contact a lost pet’s owner. With the Fourth of July holiday coming up, Humane Society officials encourage pet owners to get the microchips for their animal companions. The holiday is just a scary day for pets, who may be

Pamela and Ed Taft. Patient navigator programs are not new, Hamlin said, but they are gaining in popularity, and are now endorsed by the National Institutes of Health. According to Margaret Stauffer, program director for Cancer Support Community, having a patient navigator can be a godsend. Stauffer’s organization, which has locations in Walnut Creek and Mountain View, specializes in helping cancer patients and their families deal with the pain and stress caused by the disease. “There is so much information out there,” Stauffer said. “In some ways it is difficult to sort through.” People have to work hard to find the right physician and the right treatment. Then, once a patient has settled on a medical team and a course of action, “it can seem as though your life is ruled by your next treatment, your next medical appointment,” she said.

“All of those things are difficult enough when you are feeling well. When you aren’t feeling well, having someone who can guide you through that process can be really invaluable.” Holt said he hopes that El Camino’s patient navigators will prove to be invaluable. By working directly with doctors to keep them on the same page, by making sure patients understand all the options before them and by keeping families in the loop, he believes that they will certainly improve the level of cancer care at the hospital. There are more than 100 forms of cancer, Holt said, and ultimately the navigator’s aim will be to address each patient individually in order to help them create and execute the best possible treatment plan. The hospital will likely begin by hiring a pair of navigators to get the program started and will expand from there, Holt said.

Parrots, pigeons, bunnies and other feathered and furry friends will be showcased from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, June 4 at the Humane Society Silicon Valley Animal Community Center at 901 Ames Ave. in Milpitas. At the “Birds of Feather Hop Together” event, attendees will learn how to care about birds, bunnies and other animals, as well as get a chance to adopt a furry or feathered companion. Some of the animals came to the shelter because their former owners got sick and could no longer care for them. For more information, see hssv.convio. net/site/Calendar/ —Nadeshda Banchik

onning an elaborate silky robe and golden headdress, Bubba Gong leads his dance students around the Foothill College studio in a line during a recent rehearsal. They follow him hand in hand, all dressed in white, doing a grapevine step. The line spirals in on itself, and Gong’s students surround him in an ever-shrinking circle. He beams. Under his bright headdress, he looks like the center of a flower. The visual simile is apt. For 25 years now, Gong has been the charismatic heart of Foothill’s dance program. He was the first full-time dance instructor at the school, and founded its Foothill Repertory Dance Company. On June 3 and 4, he’ll celebrate the quarter-century mark with three dance performances encompassing a variety of styles. Gong will take the stage at Smithwick Theatre along with about 100 other dancers: students, company members, guest artists and alumni. Foothill graduate Julio Fabian, for one, says he wouldn’t miss it. He was a company member a decade ago and is now a DJ and producer in Las Vegas, going by DJ Fabian. At the June shows, he’ll perform a tribute to Michael Jackson with other Vegas

dancers, he said in an interview. “I just want to say thank you (to Gong) for all the opportunities. He’s one of the reasons why I’m where I’m at in my life and education in 1992. my career,” said Gong had been Fabian, who a performer since he also got to try was a child, serving choreographing as a Walt Disney “Kid and producing of the Kingdom” and Bubba Gong while dancing appearing in a national at Foothill. orange-juice commer“When you see Bubba for the first cial.

forms,” he says. Although the program values classical technique, it also has classes in tap, ballroom, line dancing and various ethnic traditions. Foothill dancers have studied Peking opera dance styles as well as Russian, Afro-Haitian, Caribbean, Japanese and many others, Gong says. He’s also made an effort to welcome people of all ages and body types, he says. Diversity is something that Gong has been thinking about ever since he was a Chinese-American child growing up in a small town in Mississippi. Named Sing Gong, he called himself Bubba because that was the name his friends had. When Gong moved from Mississippi to attend Stanford, a visit to San Francisco’s Chinatown gave him culture shock: “Everyone looked like me!” Later, he was among the first Asian-American actors to work on “General Hospital,” he says, adding that the experience also gave him a sensitivity to body-image issues. “I

was fired, because I couldn’t keep the weight off,” he says. In Southern California, he served on the board of the Association of Asian Pacific American Artists, working for diversity in casting and, he says, “trying to expand the notions of what Asian actors can be.” One of the new dance works that Gong will premiere at the June concerts reflects his experiences as an Asian American. He choreographed “Two Worlds, One Heart” as a contemporary ballet about being “very American” and also “being a good Chinese son.” Other works planned for the show include a Peking opera-based piece with music by Yo-Yo Ma from “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” in which Gong’s spouse, John Celona, will also perform; tributes to Bob Fosse choreography and Big Band music; and a fusion piece inspired by the film “Burlesque.” Besides DJ Fabian, other scheduled alumni performers are singer and dancer Ted Zervoulakos, hiphop dancer Jelanie Galang, tap dancer Lisa Marie Woody, contemporary dancer Stephanie Anderson and lyrical dancer Tiffanie Lee. Guest acts include Gold Star Hip Hop and Dance Connection of Palo Alto, where Gong’s assistant director, Tami Burton, is director of the performing company. The annual Foothill dance shows are often family affairs, and this one will be no exception. Gong’s sisters, Diana Chan and Sherrie Taguchi, will dance, and one of the numbers is his “Moon River Sonatina for Mom.” Gong’s mother, Palo Alto resident Magen Gong-Jensen, is also a regular performer at her son’s shows. At a rehearsal in the Foothill studio, she mingles with the younger dancers, saying with a smile, “I’m the mother of all these hundreds.” When he’s not dancing with his students, Gong calls out encouragement and corrections: “Point those toes!” “Work it!” “Smile! You’re beautiful!” Sporting a sequined white baseball cap, Gong-Jensen looks fondly at her son across the room. “He started dancing in my tummy,” she says. “When he got out he was tapping.” V

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

Shoreline revenue may be running out he warm and fuzzy deal struck by the city and the two local school districts in February to share funds from the Shoreline Community development district over the next three years made everyone happy, at least for the moment. The city magnanimously agreed to part with a portion of the revenue from the development district, which was formed in 1969 to create and maintain Shoreline Park and the surrounding business district. The special legislation that created the district funnels away property taxes that otherwise would go to schools. Over the years, income to the district has grown and is expected to produce $26.9 million this year. In their agreement to share revenue with the school districts, the city agreed to fork over $8.2 million in three payments over three years to Mountain View Whisman and $5.4 million to the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District. After years of receiving nothing from Shoreline tax revenues, school officials were ecstatic, even though there was no commitment for revenue-sharing after the three-year period. And although not all the district’s income is committed, what will be available got considerably smaller when the City Council agreed last week to “borrow” an additional $26.5 million for district projects. The new bonds will take 29 years to pay off at the rate of $2 million a year from the Shoreline Community fund. The money will be used to build new soccer and baseball fields for $9 million, a new fire station near the Shoreline Amphitheatre for $10 million and a pedestrian/bike bridge over Highway 101 for the Permanente Creek Trail that will cost $4 million. In the current estimate of investment earnings and property tax income, the Shoreline district is expected to produce about $26.9 million this year, but decline to $25.4 million in 2011-12 with virtually the same performance in 2012-13. And if current revenue estimates and expenditure plans hold, the city might not have quite enough to meet an obligation similar to the $4.8 million yearly average being paid to schools today through 2014, although there could be a surplus in the Shoreline fund that could accommodate school payments in 2015 and 2016. In the past, the City Council has been more than willing to pledge Shoreline district income to bankroll various projects to improve the Bayshore neighborhood, where many high-tech companies are located, including Google and Microsoft. But the city has now reduced its budget for such expenditures by $2 million next year and in 2012-13, with estimates rising to $3 million available for projects the following two years. If school supporters, who helped convince the city to provide the $13.6 million schools will receive over the next three years, want to continue getting a share of the Shoreline Community district revenue three years from now, they may have to ask the city to hold off on new investments at Shoreline. Otherwise, this revenue could be invested in other bond issues or projects that will take away the ability of the city to share this revenue, which is so important to the school districts.

Low income parents can insure their kids By Jennifer Shelton

I

n the fall of 2010, my niece and nephew lost their health coverage due to their father changing employers. At the time, they were 3 and 5 years old. At such a young age, having health coverage was extremely critical. Children at younger ages tend to need to visit the doctor more frequently for regular checks, illnesses, and

immunizations for school. Thus, my sister was immediately concerned with the potential cost of doctor visits. Like many families who cannot find affordable health coverage, my sister would not be able to pay out-of-pocket for a family doctor. If her children became ill, she worried as to how she could afford Continued on next page

WHO PAYS FOR DAY WORKERS? Your May 13 day worker story tells how Harold Black picked up Juan Antonio at the Mountain View Day Worker Center to take care of Black’s garden and orchards in Los Altos. Antonio works about two days in a typical week, apparently most of his work is from contacts at the Day Worker Center, which does not ask workers about their legal status in our country. Antonio, with his wife and three children, came here from Mexico because life is so miserable in that country. One thing that Black does not address is the cost to American taxpayers to take care of Antonio and his

family. If his kids are in public schools they are each costing taxpayers about $6,000 per year, or a total of $18,000 per year, about $50 a day. If any family member gets sick they can get free medical care at a hospital emergency room, and they may also qualify for some welfare programs. People who are not legal residents are costing taxpayers lots of money, and if they were not encouraged by places like the Day Worker Center we could balance state and local budgets and Black would have to pay more for someone to help him garden.

to see a doctor. Many families wait until illnesses become severe and then visit the emergency room. My sister knew emergency room visits would be even more expensive. She needed health coverage for her children as soon as possible. Luckily, I had recently joined a foundation that believes one uninsured child is one too many. The Santa Clara Family Health Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that promotes access to affordable, high quality health coverage for low-income children living in Santa Clara County through resource development and outreach. The foundation assists families to apply for subsidized health coverage, including the Healthy Kids program. Modeled after the state’s Healthy Families program, Healthy Kids provides medical, dental, vision, and pharmacy benefits for all children up to age 19 living in Santa Clara County whose families earn up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level and who are not eligible for Medi-Cal or Healthy Families. For example, a family of four can earn up to $67,068 a year and qualify for one of

the affordable health coverage options. An estimated 32 percent of all employed workers in Santa Clara County are paid $15 per hour or less, putting them well below the minimum earnings needed to meet the basic standard for selfsufficiency. Families enrolled in Healthy Kids contribute affordable monthly premiums equal to the premiums for the Healthy Families program. If it had not been for my position at the foundation, I would not have known about Healthy Kids or other available health coverage options for low-income families. Many parents with children enrolled in Healthy Kids or other low-cost health coverage are in similar situations. They are unaware of the available programs or they do not believe they could qualify. Given all the options, the foundation believes no child should be without health coverage, and is available to assist parents of uninsured children in applying for health coverage. To find out if you are eligible or if you need assistance in applying for health coverage, contact (877) 650-4555 or visit www. healthyfamilyfund.org. The Children’s Health Initiative was created to address

the one out of eight children who were uninsured in Santa Clara County in 2001. Since its inception, more than 171,000 children have applied for health coverage through

Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, or Healthy Kids. At the peak of enrollment in 2006, over 13,000 children were enrolled in Healthy Kids. Now, 96 percent of children in Santa Clara

County have health coverage. Jennifer Shelton is the development coordinator for the Santa Clara Family Health Foundation.

Peking Duck settles into new nest EXTENSIVE MENUS TOUGH TO NAVIGATE, BUT DUCK DISHES ARE WORTH IT

By Sheila Himmel

P

VERONICA WEBER

Peking Duck’s signature dish is served with scallions, cucumber and Mandarin pancakes.

eking Duck could be the restaurant to break the jinx of 151 S. California Ave., hidden in the middle of the Palo Alto Central building. In the year since moving here, the restaurant has regained its footing, particularly with larger tables and Chinese customers. Peking Duck spent over 20 years on El Camino and won many fans for its namesake dish. But the building had gotten shabby. Peking Duck was booted out to make way for a brand-new Panda Express, a fast-food Chinese chain based in

Southern California. Peking Duck turned the corner, literally, and moved in with the Jade Palace restaurant four blocks away. For a while, each had its own menu, which was confusing. Now there’s still a sign saying Jade Palace and a banner saying Peking Duck, but the voluminous menus list items from both restaurants. You get handed three or four menus, which is still confusing. The pleasantly sky-lighted dining room has housed Indian, Italian and Mediterranean restaurants. Orangey wash-painted walls must have been from one of those previ-

In last week’s review of Ristorante Don Giovanni, it was noted that diners were served in the restaurant’s banquet hall. It should have noted that the temporary closure of the main dining room was due to the remodeling of the bar. The regular dining room has reopened since the reviewer’s visit to Don Giovanni.

ties includes a refreshing salad of iceberg lettuce, cucumber and pomelo, a grapefruit-like citrus. Vegetarian offerings are surprisingly limited. At lunch with a vegetarian, the soup of the day was Westlake beef soup with egg drop — no substitutions. But she was able to add broccoli and snow peas to the fried tofu with spicy garlic sauce ($2 added to $7.50) and had more than enough food. Peking duck became an international sensation in the 1970s, credited with helping pave the way for President Richard Nixon’s groundbreaking visit to the People’s Republic of China. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger had gone first, and his initial meetings didn’t go well. Once Kissinger was served Peking duck for lunch, he loved it, talks improved and the next day Nixon was being invited to visit China. But the history of Peking duck dates back to a recipe found in a 1330 manual of the imperial kitchen. A restaurant specializing in Peking duck was founded in Beijing in 1416. It’s a sometimes thing in many Chinese restaurants, which is why fans flock to restaurants like Peking Duck.

KUNG FU PANDA --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) We’re back in ancient China, where animals — including peacock villain Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) and Po’s adoptive goose dad, Mr. Ping (James Hong) — inexplicably rule the roosts. Panda Po (Jack Black) continues to train with the Furious Five: Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Viper (Lucy Liu), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Crane (David Cross) and Monkey (Jackie Chan). But Lord Shen and his wolf army stir up trouble, just as Po has begun his search for inner peace. Rated PG for sequences of martial arts action and mild violence. One hour, 30 minutes. — P.C.

THE HANGOVER PART II --

(Century 16, Century 20) Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis reprise their “The Hangover� roles for this comical romp through the streets of Bangkok, Thailand. And while the leads serve up terrific performances and plenty of humor, “Hangover Part II� is so similar to its predecessor — right down to the “hurry up and get to the wedding� climax — that the story feels stale after about the first 30 minutes. Rated R for pervasive language, strong sexual content including graphic nudity, drug use and brief violent images. 1 hour, 42 minutes. — T.H.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS ---1/2

(Guild) Owen Wilson plays Gil Pender, an American in Paris beguiled by the notion that “every street, every boulevard is its own special art form.� A self-described Hollywood hack, Gil is a successful screenwriter who grinds out movie scripts but longs to write real literature. And then with a magical stroke reminiscent of “The Purple Rose of Cairo,� the admirer of 1920s Paris becomes immersed in his favorite period. An incredulous Gil interacts with expatriate icons of the Lost Generation and the artists who contributed to the legendary time and place. Rated PG-13 for some sexual references and smoking. 1 hour, 34 minutes. — S.T.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) The latest in the “Pirates of the Caribbean� franchise offers another excuse to watch Johnny Depp saunter across the screen as wily pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. Added to the cast are Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane, two solid actors who fit remarkably well in this jaunty pirate world. But “On Stranger Tides� suffers from a bloated run time and pedestrian script. Couple those with frenetic action and eyestraining 3D, and most viewers will be left with headaches rather than thoughts about the film itself. Here Jack is taken captive by his former flame Angelica (Cruz) and the nefarious pirate Blackbeard (McShane) in order to lead them to the fabled fountain of youth. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action/adventure violence, some frightening images, sensuality and innuendo. Two hours, 21 minutes. — T.H.

LOS ALTOS HILLS

S

urrounded by the magnificence of nature’s bounty, this beautiful land flourishes with sun-drenched open expanses with views that extend across the Black Mountain hills and out to the San Francisco Bay. Located down a private lane and seemingly miles away from everything, yet only two miles to the center of town, the mostly level land spans approximately 1.1 acres. And, with an MFA of 6,194 square feet and an MDA of 15,432 square feet, imagine the possibilities. Topping it all off – a location that puts access to excellent Palo Alto schools and commute routes to all of Silicon Valley or San Francisco close at hand.
