AT&T pushes for lots of small 4G antennas By Daniel DeBolt

T

o feed the city’s data hungry smart-phone users, the case was presented to the City Council Tuesday for installing a network of relatively small cell antennas atop Mountain View’s utility poles. AT&T and ExteNet Systems

pushed for the “Distributed Antenna System” in the city’s residential neighborhoods Tuesday at a City Council study session. The companies propose numerous low power 10-watt antennas, which stick up a few feet from the top of utility poles. They would be spread throughout neighborhoods, rather than

on the large monopoles that might be rejected by the city and neighbors for aesthetic reasons. AT&T’s Randy Okimura said that among the area’s tech savvy residents with smart phones, the “demand for data is insatiable.” Data use among AT&T customSee CELL, page 8

District pays ex-teacher $225K settlement By Nick Veronin

A

former elementary school teacher who resigned from her position at the beginning of the 2009 school year was paid $225,000 in a legal settlement with the Mountain View Whisman School District, according to documents

obtained by the Voice. Patricia Polifrone, the former Huff Elementary fourth grade instructor who drew the ire of some parents for what they called “abusive” teaching practices, was paid $112,500 upon reaching the settlement around September 2009, and another

$112,500 in January 2010. The stated purpose of the agreement, was to “negotiate Polifrone’s resignation from the District, and release all claims that Polifrone may have arising from her employment and the See SETTLEMENT, page 9

ity council members acted as the protective parents of the Stevens Creek trail Tuesday as Google pitched a plan for a pair of private bridges over the creek to a planned Google campus at NASA Ames. While a bridge is a simple thing, it gets complicated when crossing the city’s beloved Stevens Creek trail. “Priority 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 is the trail, make no mistake about it,” said Mayor Jac Siegel, who said it didn’t matter that the new Google campus could bring $700,000 in new property tax revenue annually. He said the city spent 20 years and went through hundreds of meetings to build the trail. The city will have to eventually approve the environmental impact report for the two bridges, which extend from the ends of Charleston Road and Crittenden Lane to a 42-acre NASA Ames site. In illustrations presented by Google consultant Peter Ingram, the bridges are low enough that the trail must be moved down off its levee to go under the bridge. That creates several new ups and downs on the trail north of Highway101, which users don’t like, said Aaron Grossman, director of the Friends of the Stevens Creek Trail. Google is on an accelerated schedule to build 1.2 million square feet of offices on northwestern NASA Ames, which will house 5,000 employees in Google’s “Planetary Ventures” division, said Google’s John Igoe on Tuesday. The plan includes recreation facilities, a child care center and cafeteria services. Igoe said 105,000 square feet may be housing or offices, it hasn’t been decided yet. The campus will no longer be built in a phased approach and the whole place will be under

construction in 2013, he said. A series of gates would keep out anyone, including Google employees, who are driving cars, Igoe said. Google would allow only bikes, pedestrians, police, fire and “high occupancy vehicles” over the bridges. Illustrating bridge width, Ingram presented diagrams showing a lane for vehicles, bikes and sidewalks in each direction on each bridge. The Valley Transportation Authority has some interest in the bridges because it would keep its buses to NASA and Shoreline off of Highway 101, Igoe said. NASA Ames employee Patrick Grant said the bridges should be one lane “so later on there won’t be an incentive to turn this into a highway.”

Private or public? The fact that the bridges will be privately owned by Google wasn’t welcomed by council members Ronit Bryant, Margaret Abe-Koga and Laura Macias, who reminded everyone that the council recently required a developer to pay for a public tunnel under Central Expressway. But if the bridges were to be public, the cost to build and maintain them would shift to the city, Igoe said. Macias said the bridge should be open to anyone, “not just a certain group or class of people. That doesn’t feel like Mountain View at all.” “My gut feeling is extremely negative on this,” said Councilwoman Bryant. “I don’t think it is of any benefit to Mountain View. I don’t see anything particularly convenient about it for us. I hate private streets. I can’t imagine a See GOOGLE, page 7

Union concessions prevent layoffs By Daniel DeBolt

T MICHELLE LE

El Camino employees picket outside the hospital June 29.

Hospital workers protest proposed cuts By Nick Veronin

A

bout 35 members of the Service Employers International Union-United Healthcare Workers gathered on Grant Road in front of El Camino Hospital on June 29 to protest what one representative called “unwarranted” cuts to the union’s pay structure and health benefits. Carrying picket signs plastered with messages such as, “Shame on El Camino,” the protestors chanted slogans: “Hey! Hey! Ho! Ho! Bad faith bargaining has to go!” The SEIU-UHW represents cafeteria workers, janitors, dieticians, medical technicians, social workers and various other non-nurse, nonphysician and non-administrative employees of the hospital. According to Todd Schmitz, an SEIU-UHW representative, the workers at the protest are upset that

the hospital is seeking to eliminate the free employee healthcare plan. Under the proposed plan, SEIUUHW members would have to contribute at least 10 percent to insurance premiums for the lowest tier plan. Workers are also upset that the hospital is seeking to reduce differential pay — which guarantees employees better wages for working irregular shifts — by 5 percent. “They are clearly a hospital that is in good financial shape and they are calling for cuts that are unwarranted,” Schmitz said. Kim Reyes, a licensed vocational nurse at El Camino and member of the SEIU-UHW, said that she would have trouble supporting her 18-year-old daughter, who just started college, if the cuts go through. “It’s really important for me that

I retain my coverage for her,” Reyes said. Reyes believes El Camino will become a less competitive hospital if the proposed cuts are implemented. Hospital spokeswoman Chris Ernst saw things in a different light. She said that the proposed cuts are only aimed at putting all hospital employees on an equal plane when it comes to benefits and differential pay. All other employees at El Camino Hospital must contribute 10 percent to insurance premiums for the lowest tier benefits package, Ernst said. “Our goal is achieve parity at all levels within our organization,” she said. “We believe our plan to be competitive and a very rich benefit package, even with the employee contribution.” V

Community colleges brace for cuts, again REDUCTIONS INEVITABLE FOR FOOTHILL-DE ANZA, EVEN WITH $10M ‘RAINY DAY FUND’ By Nick Veronin

D

ue to deep state cuts to public higher education, local community colleges will have to cut back on courses, turn away students and lay off part-time faculty in the coming school year, officials from the Foothill-De Anza Community College District said.

Though it is unclear how much state funding will be cut from the district’s budget in the 2011-12 school year, Linda Thor, FoothillDe Anza’s chancellor, expects to lose at least $8.5 million. The state has informed community colleges throughout California that cuts are definitely coming, Thor said. Further reductions could be in the works halfway

through the school year, if the state fails to come up with its goal of $4 billion in revenue. If at least $3 billion in the hopedfor state revenue materializes, there will be no further cuts to FoothillDe Anza beyond the $8.5 million, Thor said. However, in a worst-case scenario, the district will need to compensate for a reduction of about $10.5 million.

he City Council on Tuesday approved agreements with the city’s union leaders to prevent layoffs over the next year. Interim City Manager Melissa Stevenson Dile said the agreements with most of the city’s nonpublic safety employees would cut health care costs and vacation costs enough to keep the city from making any layoffs or unexpected budget cuts this year. Cost savings from the proposed contracts would save about $500,000 in 2011-12, which was the City Council’s goal. Dile said the cost savings comes from increasing hospital visit copayments to $10 for “non-preventative” medical visits for all three employee groups, saving $150,000. The co-payments were previously free or $5. Vacation policies changed for all three groups, reducing the amount that can be paid out in cash and putting caps on how much vacation time can accrue, reducing the city’s budget costs. Police and fire managers agreed to not take any merit pay raises or cost of living adjustments for the year, while department heads and council appointees agreed to do the same for the third year in a row. The SEIU also agreed to one unpaid day off during the year. SEIU leader Chris Costanzo said it was difficult for employees to put a cap on vacation time, as many employees see it as their only option for taking maternity leave. The city is unusual in not having a disability plan to allow that.

Because about 95 percent of the district’s revenue comes from the state, all cuts handed down from Sacramento are significant. According to Kevin McElroy, the district’s vice chancellor, Foothill-De Anza is bracing for a total deficit of $22.8 million, which they hope to make up for through class and staffing reductions, borrowing from the individual colleges and through a $10.7 million “rainy day fund.” In the best case scenario, the district is planning to reduce its capacity for full-time students by 6.15 percent, which means about

As a result of the cutbacks, two employees got to keep their jobs: an assistant at the Center for Performing Arts and a public safety public outreach coordinator. A vacant position for a community services officer will remain in the budget, while the deputy zoning administrator will remain a full time position. A half-time deputy fire marshal in charge of inspecting apartment buildings will now be funded for full time work to address a backlog of inspections. The agreements were made with employee groups representing 75 percent of the city’s 600 employees: the SEIU, the Eagles — a mid-level managers union — and unrepresented employees, which include department heads, council appointees, classified IT employees and fire and police managers. Police and fire union contracts were not up for negotiation this year and neither group made any concessions, Dile said. Both unions had contract extensions given to them in the last two years which expire in June, 2012. Addressing concerns about a potential conflict of interest, Dile said police Capt. Max Bosel was not involved in contract negotiations with police managers, but was involved in negotiations with fire department managers. Bosel has been filling in for Dile as interim assistant city manager and human resources director, a key position in negotiating with the city’s unions. Bosel will go back to being a police captain in a few weeks. V

3,935 fewer students — full-time and part-time — would be served in total, said Thor. In the worst-case scenario, the district would have to pare back its full-time student load by more than 7.5 percent, or about 4,834 full- and part-time students. Further complicating matters, the district will not know if the worst case scenario will come to pass until December 15, after many students have already enrolled in classes, which could mean that fees would be raised retroactively at See CUTS, page 6

REFRESHING NEW MONIKER Welcome to Mountain Dew, California. The folks at Weather.com have accidentally renamed our fine city after a soft drink. When you type a Mountain View zip code into Weather.com, it lists “Mountain Dew Ames Resource Center” as the nearest weather station. They somehow managed to make two goof-ups in our neighboring NASA center’s name, as NASA Ames is a research center, not a resource center. Resident Bruce Karney was amused. About 10 years ago Karney wrote an April Fools story along these lines, in which the city gets paid to rename itself Mountain Dew, California, solving the city’s budget problems. “I haven’t contacted Weather. com to ask them to change it. I’m sort of enjoying seeing it for now,” Karney said. The gaff has remained on the site over a week, although we expect it won’t last after this is published. It can be seen at snipurl.com/15rbi.

MEALS FOR HUNGRY KIDS Families who depend on free or reduced-price meals during the school year can get help feeding

their children during the summer months, thanks to Second Harvest Food Bank. The Mountain View feeding site is at Castro Elementary School and will serve breakfast and lunch to children under 18 through the end of July. “We understand that many families who rely on these meals during the school year may be having a difficult time feeding their children right now,” said Cindy McCown, senior director of Programs and Services at Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. “We want to make sure everyone knows there are resources available.” There are a number of summer feeding programs for children in Santa Clara County. Call Second Harvest Food Bank’s Food Connection hotline at 1-800-984FOOD (3663) to find the nearest one, or get information on other food assistance programs. The hotline is available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

LOST HIKER RESCUED BY LOCAL GUARDSMEN Moffett-based Air National

Guardsmen spent their Fourth of July morning successfully rescuing a hiker who was lost for two days in the El Dorado National forest. The hiker, 54-year-old Lauren Ellen DeLaTorre, became lost on July 2 near Pioneer, California and was without water, food and warm clothing for 32 hours, the National Guard reports. Shortly after 9 a.m., DeLaTorre was spotted in a remote area by guardsmen aboard a helicopter who then climbed “steep and rocky terrain” to rescue her. Suffering from “extreme fatigue” and dehydration, she was flown to a nearby command post where she was reunited with her family and treated for minor injuries. The Moffett-based 129th Air Rescue Squadron happened to have its helicopters nearby after having participated in a Fourth of July celebration in Lake Tahoe earlier in the morning. “With lost hiker searches, you hope for the best but prepare yourself for the worst,” said aircraft commander Capt. Nathan Nowaski in a press release. “It was extremely gratifying to find the missing hiker and get her back to her family safely.” — Daniel DeBolt

Foothill and De Anza colleges, Thor and McElroy said. Any increase would come on top of a $7-per-unit bump that is already built into the governor’s budget, starting this fall; the cost for a typical four-unit class will rise from $68 to $92. Thor estimated that as many as 200 part-time faculty and staff might not be hired back next year; open administrative positions will not be filled whenever possible; and benefits will remain at last year’s levels. If there is any bright side to the gloomy news, Thor said, it is that the Foothill-De Anza board of trustees previously overestimated the severity of future cuts and managed to set aside close to $10.7 million to help minimize reductions in 2011-12. “The district is very fortunate in that our board of trustees had been anticipating more bad times and had established what we called the stability fund, what others might call a rainy day fund,” Thor said. Thor estimates that Foothill-De Anza would use up the majority of the “rainy day fund” next year making up for its deficit. McElroy, who was appointed vice chancellor of the district last August, has been working in Cali-

fornia public schools since 1985. “In the 26 years that I’ve been here, I’ve never seen it this bad,” McElroy said of the state’s budget situation. He noted that recessions hit state community colleges in 1993 and 2003, but neither caused as much damage as the current recession. Neither of the previous economic downturns he saw as vice president of administrative services at Coastline Community College in Fountain Valley, Calif., lasted as long as the current slump, McElroy said. The Foothill-De Anza district has been losing state funding since 2008. “We have cycles,” McElroy said. “This is just a really bad cycle.” “The thing that is most troubling for us,” Thor said, “is that California had the best higher education system in the country and it’s being decimated. Who knows if we’ll ever be able to recover from that?” Thor and McElroy tried to balance optimism with a realistic outlook about the future of their schools and the state’s community college system overall. “I want to stress, we don’t want to be discouraging people from coming to our colleges,” Thor said. “We are managing the cuts the best we can. We are doing everything we can to be able to serve the community at a level close to what they’ve been used to.”

private bridge.� The new campus would be built on federally controlled land within city limits. While the city will receive property taxes and may provide fire and police services to the new campus, the city won’t have authority over bridge design because the bridges are over PG&E, NASA and Santa Clara Valley Water District jurisdictions. The city has an easement on Water District property for the trail. Member Abe-Koga said the bridges would ruin the feeling of the trail north of Highway 101, which is a nice change from the urban feel on southern portions. Council member Tom Means had a different view, calling it the “boringest� part of the trail. Council member Mike Kasperzak said the bridge could be made to look “elegant� as a cable suspension bridge, which Ingram illustrated. Some council members questioned the need for any new bridges at all. One bridge already exists for light vehicles at the end of Crittenden Lane, used by duck hunters and some NASA employees. Some said it was sufficient to have buses use the main entry to the new campus on the eastern side of the creek from RTE Jones Road, which extends from Moffett Boulevard. Abe-Koga brought up the concern that future companies that build at NASA Ames near Google may also want bridge access over the creek. “The question is, why don’t we just have one public bridge?� Abe-Koga said. Abe-Koga and other members also questioned the need for Google to have two bridges instead of one bridge. Igoe said the two bridges would allow for better circulation. “Connectivity� is important to Google, he said. Council members Means, Kasperzak and Inks appeared most supportive. “If we are going to use Fire Station 5 (located near Crittenden Lane), you probably do need to so this,� Kasperzak said. A fire truck going around on 101 would be “a joke.� The Google campus will be built over an upper wetland area, which Mayor Siegel and Bryant harshly criticized. “This is a very clear step away from protecting the environment,� Bryant said. Zoning Administrator Peter Gilli said the council would have some influence over the bridge project because it would have the authority to determine whether the design really addressed impacts identified in the environmental impact report.

Cities to study big trail extension By Daniel DeBolt

W

ith Sunnyvale and Los Altos finally stepping up to extend the Stevens Creek Trail closer to the Stevens Creek reservoir, the City Council approved a bit of money Tuesday to help study the trail extensions. The city will now contribute $5,000 to the $100,000 study, which will determine the feasibility of extending the trail from Mountain View High School to the city’s southern border and beyond. Council member Laura Macias was the only member to vote against the funding. “We have spent $33 million on the trail,� Macias said. “We did receive $11 million in outside grants. That’s for our 4.75 miles. Cupertino has done .75 miles. I’m so glad they (Sunnyvale and Los Altos) are on board, but I am not sure why we are being asked to sponsor it. I am really torn on this.� Other members agreed with Aaron Grossman, director of Friends of the Stevens Creek Trail, who said the benefits to Mountain View were worth $5,000. “The trail won’t

continue without this feasibility study,� he said. “We will benefit to some degree. Our people will use the trail.� Council member Tom Means, the city’s trail representative in meetings with the other cities, said there was a piece of property on the east side of the creek that could be used to connect Mountain View High School to the city’s southern border. From there, Sunnyvale and Los Altos would continue the trail to Cupertino. Avoiding the difficulties in finding space for the trail along the creek, Los Altos had previously studied using city streets to make the connection but is now moving away from that, Means said. Sunnyvale has taken the lead in conducting the study. Eventually the trail would connect to Stevens Creek Reservoir, where numerous trails cover the hills. The $5,000 for the study came from a $50,000 city fund from the Valley Transportation Authority to help start such projects. V

ers has increased “8,000 percent� since 2007, he said. “We are just trying to meet the needs of our customers.� Bill Stevens of ExteNet Systems, a utility company that leases antennas to service providers, said what he hears from cities is “make it small, make it less obtrusive. DAS allows for that.� Council members had mixed reactions. Ronit Bryant described the idea as taking already ugly utility poles and “loading them with equipment. I would definitely prefer one big pole. Saying this is the least ugly thing we can do is an awfully sad way to move forward. This is not trying for the best solution; it is just going for the easiest and quickest way.� “I think we should ask the neighborhoods what they want,� Bryant said. “There may be more people who think like me.� City staff members say they have seen a dramatic increase in the number of applications for cell towers in recent years, with 65 received since 2009. There are now cell towers on 64 sites in the city. However, there are areas not covered: all of

Shoreline Park and much of the Monta Loma and Rengstorff residential neighborhoods, city staff reported in the study session Tuesday. Staff reported that there would be a “significant� public benefit in allowing DAS. But it would require a change to the city’s zoning ordinance to allow additional utility pole height, which the council could approve as early as September. DAS applications would still be subject to a design review permit and public hearing process. A representative from Verizon had a different view on DAS, saying that the technology was less able to penetrate buildings than more powerful cell towers and monopoles. He added that utility poles could quickly become ugly with all of the boxes of equipment that may be necessary. While AT&T houses much of that equipment in central offices, Verizon does not, he said. “If a neighborhood really needs it, then neighborhoods can choose,� said council member Laura Macias. Mayor Jac Siegel agreed. “We have 14 different neighborhoods. Ask them, see what they want.� Siegel urged the city to be flexible because the technol-

ogy was rapidly changing, and cell companies were already considering newer technologies as it implements the latest. He also suggested the city allow cell antennas atop the police station’s large monopole, “unless there’s a security reason� not to do it. Member Tom Means said he saw no problems with allowing cell antennas in Shoreline Park. Others weren’t as supportive. “I don’t really think there’s a need right now to put poles in the park,� said member Margaret Abe-Koga. “Can we put poles on the top of the (Shoreline Amphitheatre) tent? Make it look like a circus top,� she joked. City staff said they had been curious about that as well. Options for Shoreline Park, which may not have consistent coverage for calling 911, include cell antennas on PG&E lattice towers, which would require ground level equipment cabinets and access for service trucks. “At this point, staff’s position is to be very protective of parkland,� said Zoning Administrator Peter Gilli. “If a proposal came in for Shoreline Park, we would say no.� Council member Mike Kasperzak suggested the city allow a cell antenna on top of the Rengstorff House at Shoreline Park. “I’m Continued on next page

Macias and member John Inks also said they supported using city property for cell antennas to raise funds for city services. Three already exist on city property, including one at the Rengstorff Avenue fire station and two on Shoreline Amphitheatre parking lot light poles. The city receives $2,500 a month for each one. V

publicity surrounding it.” The settlement contained a “covenant not to sue” condition. It also stipulated that neither Polifrone, nor the district, were admitting wrongdoing in agreeing to the settlement. The former Mountain View Whisman teacher was to begin teaching at Graham middle school at the beginning of the 2009-10 school year. She

was transferred to the middle school after a group of parents of Polifrone’s students at Huff complained that she verbally berated her students. “This abuse has done so much damage to so many students,” said Christine Fortes in emails to the Voice around the time of the controversy. In the Voice’s online forum, some readers defended Polifrone, saying the concerned parents were overreacting. Polifrone could not be reached for comment.

T

he long saga of Hangar One has taken another twist, one that might ultimately place it under the purview of the city of Mountain View. And that may not be a bad thing. The cavernous historic structure at Moffett Field is in the midst of being stripped of its contaminated siding, but the future of its skeletal remains is in doubt. Rather than going ahead and reskinning Hangar One, a recently released report by the NASA Office of the Inspector General recommends demolishing it entirely or giving it away. The cost of restoring the dirigible hangar has passed from the United States Navy to NASA, and in a time of tight budgets, NASA officials are questioning the wisdom of spending almost $33 million to restore a building that has “no prospects for re-use for the foreseeable future and would require substantial additional investment to make it habitable.” But rather than sounding the death knell for the iconic structure, it could signal a new beginning with Hangar One, putting it in the hands of a community that is highly motivated to save it. The 211-foot-tall Hangar One, with a footprint equal to 10 football fields, could bring thousands of visitors to the city and new revenue. It could be used as a convention hall or a major air and space museum, as “Smithsonian West” proponents suggest. Coming up with almost $33 million is a tall order, but not necessarily impossible, even for a city of Mountain View’s size. Remember that only two years ago, city officials were poised to invest $30 million on a long-sought-after hotel and convention center near Google in the Shoreline area. With the acquisition of Hangar One, the city could have a truly unique convention hall, certainly the only one in the world with such breathtakingly massive 1930s streamline modernestyle. Adding Hangar One to the special Shoreline tax district could help leverage the bond money to restore it. Just like Shoreline Amphitheatre, revenues from Hangar One uses could help fund city services, which have been cut back significantly in recent years. City ownership could be the hangar’s saving grace because the city could manage Hangar One free of federal constraints that make its re-use difficult. Federal laws say NASA must charge market rate rents and cannot credit tenant improvements toward future lease payments. The city can and has enticed tenants to lease city property by subsidizing tenants improvements to city buildings, such as the 1887 replica train depot. It should be mentioned that the move could become something larger than Hangar One. In making the land under Hangar One a contiguous piece of the city, it may also be the right time for Mountain View to take on the largely vacant southwestern corner of Moffett Field, as city officials have discussed for years. The NASA Research Park planned for this 75-acre area is on hold because of the possibility of holding World Expo 2020 at Moffett. The NRP plan has all the earmarks of a real community: the future home of a University of California campus, private research and development space, hundreds of homes, restaurants and shops. It is the sort of place that a city — not a space agency — would have expertise in governing and servicing. And it is appropriate that the affairs of such a community be discussed and decided in the open at City Hall, not in the closed conference rooms of NASA Ames. Of course, it would be important to determine whether new property taxes and other revenues would out-pace the cost of delivering expanded city services at Moffett. We have no doubt that city officials would thoroughly vet the financial implications before coming to a decision. But it is a tantalizing prospect, and one we hope will be given serious consideration.

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

EL CAMINO HOSPITAL PUTS PROFITS BEFORE PATIENTS Wednesday, June 29, I joined healthcare workers at El Camino Hospital in a protest aimed at alerting the public that the hospital is putting profits before patient care. The hospital made $35 million in profits last quarter and is projected to make more than $52 million in profits over the next 12 months, with assets valued at more than a billion dollars. The hospital is financed by the community and governed by a five-member elected board. The board has been criticized in the past for a lack of financial transparency. Recently a grand jury found that the finances of the private and public aspects of the hospital are inappropriately “intermingled.” Wednesday was also the last day of chief executive officer Ken Graham, a successful and popular executive who oversaw the transition into a new hospital. The board decided not to renew his contract “without cause” shortly after he was given a prestigious award by an organization of more than 30,000 healthcare executives. This is the same board that implemented a contract with registered nurses filled with benefit cuts. The hospital is now trying to cut healthcare benefits, reduce shift differentials and vacation and holiday pay, and decrease retirement contributions for the rest of its workers. The hospital bills itself as “the hospital of Silicon Valley” and states that their goal is to be in the top 5 percent of all U.S. hospitals, yet they are positioning themselves as a lowcost healthcare provider. I have serious concerns that with below market wages and benefits El Camino Hospital will not be

able to attract and retain experienced caregivers. Kary Lynch, 30-plus year El Camino employee

SHORELINE NEEDS BETTER TRAFFIC PLAN As I was going through an intersection at Rengstorff & Shoreline about 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 2, when a truck I’d been following stopped and blocked the street. A man got out of the truck and started putting up “Road Closed” signs, leaving me near the middle of that intersection with nowhere to turn. Thanks to the consideration of other drivers, I was able to safely back up and turn east onto Charleston. As I neared the next intersection, I found access to Shoreline Park was not possible. I saw gridlocked traffic, gaggles of young adults crossing streets, seemingly undertrained traffic directors in neon orange vests shouting and gesticulating to little avail. I’d looked at the Mountain View Voice and online and saw no announcement for an event at Shoreline. Had I known, I could have avoided the area. I only wanted a morning walk in the park and to sit on a bench to reflect on the significance of this holiday weekend before it got too hot. The truth is that people who want to use the park should not be prevented from doing so because of large events at the Amphitheatre or other area venues. A good traffic management plan could go a long way toward allowing multiple uses at peak times. I think there is room to improve on two counts. No. 1: Better communication about large events; and No. 2: Considerate traffic management appropriate to the size of events and day-to-day uses. Gail M. Webber, W. Middlefield Road

The end results were worthwhile, though. During my visits, patrons were lined up when the doors opened for lunch. By noon, getting a seat involved a short wait.

Exciting New Japanese Fusion Restaurant

fter operating the highly regarded Bistro Elan on Palo Alto’s California Avenue for 16 years, Andrea Hyde and husband/chef Ambjorn Lindskog closed the restaurant on July 2. Fortunately for diners, they didn’t travel far; they shifted their business just a short stroll away to their new, smaller Birch Street location. “It was all about rent and the relationship with our landlord,” Hyde said of the move. “Many of our patrons met their partners on first dates at Bistro Elan; we watched families and kids grow; it was an extension of our living

room. We hope we brought those sentiments with us.” I found that everything sparkled at Birch Street, including the food. The stainless steel of the kitchen was mimicked in cool gray walls and a shiny hardwood floor. The large front window and side transoms flooded the space with midday light. The drawback is the size: a dozen tables inside, a dozen more outdoors when the weather cooperates. As of this writing, the restaurant is open only for lunch. Dinner service is scheduled to commence on July 15. Diminutive Birch Street might be the only sit-down restaurant I have been in where the

VERONICA WEBER

Pantry cook JosĂŠ Lopez places salads ready to be served on the counter at Birch Street restaurant.

corn, finely diced potato and ringlets of leek, all very fresh tasting. The chilled cucumber soup with yogurt, onion and dill ($5/$7.50) was rich and tangy; even a cup quelled the pangs of appetite. This soup was well-balanced and the dill used sparingly enough to taste the sweet/sourness of the yogurt. I loved the arugula salad ($11) with cara cara navel orange segments, Meyer lemon, lime, dates, hazelnuts and parmesan cheese. The salad was peppery, citrusy, crunchy with hints of sweetness. Of the main dishes, the panseared albacore tuna ($15.75) sat

atop a bed of roasted burgundyred beets, avocado and snap peas, all dressed with a spicy paprika dressing. Flavors tumbled off the fork. Orecchiette (little ears) pasta ($15.75) was tossed with a slightly piquant house-made chili sausage (red pepper flakes, cumin, fennel) fresh English peas and pecorino cheese. The generous portion was long on flavor and satisfaction. The veal shank-stuffed cannelloni ($15) was packed with fork-tender meat and mushrooms under a blanket of roasted tomato sauce. A pile of crisp greens made a nice accompaniment.

Birch Street features BN Ranch beef. BN are the initials of naturalmeat pioneer Bill Niman, founder of Niman Ranch meats. Niman left that business in 2007 and now raises superb grass-fed cattle on his own ranch in Bolinas. Niman makes a special all-beef hot dog exclusively for Birch Street ($7.50) with house-made waffle chips. Another superb sandwich was the Swedish tartine ($13.50) on toasted pain de mie (similar to a pullman, long and narrow) piled with smoked salmon, Oregon shrimp, cucumber, asparagus, hard-boiled egg, dill and mayo all covered with paper-thin radish slices. The sandwich was as pretty as it was delicious: a mini smorgasbord on an oversized flat of toast. It came with house waffle chips. Lindskog and Hyde have long championed the Sunday California Avenue farmers market, where they buy all their seasonal produce. Several of the farms make supplemental deliveries during the week to maintain the freshest product. Finally, I’m not much of a fan of strawberry ice cream, but this one turned my head. The strawberries had been roasted before being churned into the cream. Roasting the berries evaporated the water and intensified the flavor. It was like eating strawberry-jam ice cream. Also available was a delicious chocolate-chip ice-cream sandwich and various tartlets including a lip-smacking caramel-chocolate tartlet. All desserts were $5, required no prep time and were delivered quickly to the table. The beverage list was more than adequate. Wines were offered by the glass, carafe and bottle. While we lament the passage of Bistro Elan, we can celebrate that Lindskog and Hyde have just relocated to a smaller venue a block away. Like its predecessor, Birch Street delivers an appealing seasonal menu and chic ambiance, at appetizing prices. V

NMOVIEREVIEWS

CARS 2 --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Kids will no doubt continue to be enthralled by the exploits of race car Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his BFF tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy). The opening sequence finds British secret agent Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) discovering a terrorist plot to disrupt the first-ever World Grand Prix, then making a spectacular escape from an offshore oil rig. Meanwhile, Mater ropes Lightning into participating in the race, hosted by alternative-fuel advocate Sir Miles Axelrod (Eddie Izzard). Mistaken for a spymaster of disguise, Mater begins working (and culture-clashing) with McMissile and first-time field agent Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer). This new pursuit makes the less-thansmart Mater more distracted than ever, causing him to cost Lightning a race to narcissistic Italian hotshot Francesco Bernoulli (John Turturro). Can this friendship be saved? Will the evil plot of German-made Professor Z (Thomas Kretschmann) be foiled? Does a junker leak in a garage? Rated G. One hour, 53 minutes — P.C.

LARRY CROWNE --

(Century 16, Century 20) Directed, produced and co-written by Tom Hanks, “Larry Crowne� is a featherweight dramedy of the new economy. Hanks stars as the title character, a model employee fired from big-box store “UMart� under the rationale that — since he never went to college — he has no prospects for advancement within the company. The divorced Larry lives in a suburban house that’s recently gone underwater, so after being fired, he allows himself one long dark night of the soul. Then he gets up and starts the work of changing his life: a yard sale, swapping his car for a scooter, and signing up for classes at East Valley Community College, where the friendly neighborhood dean tells him he won’t regret signing up for Speech 217 taught by the beautiful Ms. Tainot (Julia Roberts). Rated PG-13 for brief strong language and some sexual content. One hour, 39 minutes. — P.C.
