Parents fed up with school district’s wait list OVERFLOW AT STEVENSON ROILS PARENTS, BUT IS A GOOD SIGN TO OFFICIALS By Nick Veronin

the last few weeks, starting a fresh conversation on radio and television about immigration in the U.S. Vargas’ story has now been widely told. Vargas was brought from the Philippines to live with his grandparents in the U.S. by a

coyote posing as his uncle at age 13, and he has not seen his mother since. He realized his situation only when his fake green card was rejected when he tried to get a driver’s license in high school. See VARGAS, page 6

ore than 170 would-be elementary and middle school students have been placed on the Mountain View Whisman School District’s waiting list for the 2011-12 school year. While parents are complaining, district officials said that this year’s waiting list is not all that unusual compared with past years. In total, 173 incoming kindergartners, first-, second-, third-, sixth- and seventh-graders are on a waiting list. The vast majority of those students — 159 — are hoping for an intra-district transfer. The bulk of that group — 52 — are kindergarteners whose parents are vying for a spot in Stevenson, the district’s PACT school. Only 14 students have been put on a waiting list to get into their “neighborhood schools” — the school the district assigns based upon a student’s home address. “I’ve been very proactive in trying to get things happening and I’ve actually just run out of steam,” said Autumn Meisel, whose daughter starts kindergarten in the fall. Meisel has been pushing to get her daughter into Stevenson to no avail. “It’s extraordinarily frustrating.” Superintendent Craig Goldman said that demand is especially high this year for the PACT — or Parent, Child, Teacher — program, he noted that there is almost always a longer waiting list for Stevenson, as well as for the district’s dual language immersion program at Castro School. “Overall, as a district our enrolment trends are within our projections,” he said. According

to Goldman, there are always some students on the waiting list for their neighborhood schools and the number on the intradistrict waiting list is always higher than that. “I think the fact that there is a wait list at Stevenson is validation that PACT is a strong, choice program.” Parents Marina Dergun and Meisel said they feel that the district has not done enough to See WAIT LIST, page 11

Google: Public could use new bridges By Daniel DeBolt

G

oogle has responded to an apparent misunderstanding at last week’s City Council meeting that its proposed bridges over Stevens Creek will not be open to the public. Several City Council members expressed strong feelings against Google-only access to the bridges on Tuesday. A spokesperson for Google contacted the Voice Friday to clarify the issue, saying that the bridges, while technically privately owned, would be open to “essentially anyone who wants to use them.” Walkers, bicyclists and those coming through on public transit buses and shuttles would have access over the bridges, the Google spokesperson said, but regular car traffic would not. “We want to minimize impact to the trail,” the spokesperson See GOOGLE, page 13

MAN SNATCHES NECKLACE A 25-year-old Mountain View woman was robbed of her gold necklace on July 7 while in the 2000 block of Latham Street, police said. At about 5:50 p.m., a man approached the woman, who was sitting outside of a residence on Latham Street, according to Mountain View police spokeswoman Jaime Garrett. Without saying anything, the man grabbed the woman’s necklace, ripped it from her neck and fled, Garrett said. The man, who was wearing a baseball cap, dark T-shirt and dark pants, was last seen running west on Latham Street. Police set up a perimeter around the area where the robbery occurred but did not apprehend any suspects,

she said. The necklace, valued at around $300, had a pendant.

BURGLARY, INTERRUPTED A Mountain View couple came home in the middle of a burglary on the afternoon of July 10, police said. About $4,000 in jewelry, electronics and cash was taken. According to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie, a 30-year-old man and his wife left their apartment in the 800 block of E. El Camino Real around 2:45 p.m. The couple returned about 45 minutes later and heard sounds coming from their bedroom, Wylie See CRIME BRIEFS, page 8

House committee kills Hangar One funding By Daniel DeBolt

H

opes for federal money to save Moffett Field’s historic Hangar One were dashed on Tuesday when the House Appropriations Committee removed $32.8 million for new Hangar One siding from NASA’s 2012 budget. The move followed a NASA Inspector General report which criticized the NASA Ames Research

Center request for the $32.8 million when more “mission critical” NASA projects would be delayed. The report that accompanied the decision said committee members understood that NASA is “considering additional options for the renovation and use of the hangar,” that may not involve NASA’s residing of it. NASA officials said last month that the agency will consider giving Hangar One to another

government agency and will even consider demolishing it entirely. The recommendation against the Hangar One funding is likely to be passed by both houses of Congress, preservationists say. Bill Berry, former NASA Ames official and co-chair of the Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board, said in an email that the request See HANGAR ONE, page 6

MV Whisman district finances looking rosier By Nick Veronin

T

he Mountain View Whisman School District anticipates having more money next school year than it had in 2010-11, thanks to two large and unexpected infusions of cash that the district received late last school year. According to the 2011-12 budget — presented by Superintendent

Craig Goldman and approved by the Mountain View Whisman board of trustees on June 16 — the district plans to spend about $40 million next year (up from $38.7 million last year). Goldman said he believes the district will finish out 2012 with about $2.2 million in undesignated and unrestricted funds. The good news, Goldman said, can be attributed in large part to

the $2.8 million in funds the district received as a result of the reorganization of the Shoreline Community — a special tax district north of Highway 101, which had previously kept millions of dollars within its boundaries and out of the hands of local schools — plus a $1 million donation from Google. Goldman, who played a major role in raising public awareness of the money being diverted from

local schools by the Shoreline Community, said that it would be hard to overstate the importance of the Shoreline funds, which will continue bringing money to the district through the 2012-13 school year. “If we didn’t have Shoreline, not only would we have had to use our additional reserve, but we would have had to cut programs,” Goldman said, adding that the district has benefited from several other fortunate financial turns. Besides the $1 million from

Google to bolster science and math education, the district received $400,000 in funds raised by the Mountain View Educational Foundation and a $210,000 donation from El Camino Hospital. Every bit of extra income the district receives is a big deal in this economy, according to Goldman. Costs associated with healthcare, special education services, teaching materials, fuel and energy are all See WHISMAN, page 11

-PDBM/FXT VARGAS

Continued from page 1

Vargas met with the Voice on Monday before his sold-out talk at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, and discussed what has happened over the last few weeks. A former Mountain View High School student and Voice intern, Vargas, has put his face on the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immigration conversation in appearances on CNN, Fox News, NPR and Rachel Maddowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MSNBC show. He was scheduled to appear on the Colbert Report on Thursday, after the Voice went to press. Everything was going well for Vargas before he revealed his immigration status. He had recently interviewed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for the New Yorker and had written 600 articles for the Washington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle, including one about the Virginia Tech massacre for which he shared a Pulitzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All you can really do is live as honestly as you can,â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in it for me. Walking away from The New York Times building on Eighth Avenue, knowing the article was closed, I just started skipping around. People probably thought I was nuts. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even describe to you the feeling of liberation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have so internalized all of this and I have, like, blocked it in the

corner of my mind,â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once I unlocked it in my head, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been getting to know myself in a completely different way. I had gotten lost in telling other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done.â&#x20AC;? Vargas saw that he was in a position to help many others like him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard from many of them in the last three weeks, including one with a law degree who has been busing tables for four years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My heart just breaks for them,â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. The United States is â&#x20AC;&#x153;all about dreaming big, (and) you are basically telling people, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oops, sorry, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? With many undocumented immigrants brought here as children being educated in the U.S., â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would think the country would want to get their investment back,â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. A difficult situation By the time he spoke with a lawyer, it was too late. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I checked boxes I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supposed to check,â&#x20AC;? on employment applications, Vargas said, explaining why he would have difficulty applying for citizenship in the U.S. It was recommended that he move back to the Philippines for 10 years before coming back to apply again. His mentors advised against that, including former Mountain View High School superintendent Rich Fisher, who told him â&#x20AC;&#x153;keep

going,â&#x20AC;? Vargas recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he would have said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leave,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would have done it.â&#x20AC;? Similarly, Peter Pearl, an editor at the Washington Post who knew about his situation, decided to support Vargas rather than report him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he would have told me â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have to report you now,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would have said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Okay,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really indebted to these American citizens who decided to help me out.â&#x20AC;? Vargas said last year he briefly considered quietly moving to Canada to obtain citizenship there. Instead, he invited friends and family from around the country to an Indian restaurant in San Francisco for his 30th birthday party, where it was made clear that his next big move might get him deported. Vargas has received no indication from authorities about whether that could happen, but he has a team of volunteer lawyers who are â&#x20AC;&#x153;ready for anything and everything that could happen. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not driving anymore. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be jaywalking. I just have to be careful.â&#x20AC;? Addressing his opponents Ultimately, Vargas does not have a policy recommendation, just a strong belief that the conversation on immigration needs to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;reframedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;elevated.â&#x20AC;? As journalists, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have to talk to people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with us,â&#x20AC;?

Vargas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually looking forward to having a civil dialogue with people who think that I should just be deported or think of me as a threat. I would not have done what I have done if I thought I would just be preaching to the choir. I did not put myself in my situation just so I could get a round of applause from people who already believe what I believe.â&#x20AC;? Vargas said he personally wrestled with the question of whether or not he has taken jobs away from American citizens. When he won his internship at the Washington Post, he called one of his mentors, former Mountain View High School principal Pat Hyland, and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did I take somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pat actually laughed at me,â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stop thinking that way, you earned this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to where I got through hard work and merit,â&#x20AC;? Vargas said. People think â&#x20AC;&#x153;my existence threatens your existence, when really it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Vargas said he formed his nonprofit, Define American, while planning to reveal his story in order to maximize the impact he could have in the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debate on immigration. He said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect legislators to pass immigration reform anytime soon, but he will be making sure it is discussed in the next presidential race, in

which he will not be a reporter, but someone raising the issues. A longer version of this story, along with a video of the interview, may be found at mv-voice.com. V

HANGAR ONE

Continued from page 1

would likely be denied in 2013 as well, given the political climate in Washington D.C. The board will meet Thursday evening to discuss Hangar One, and may vote to send a letter in support of Hangar One to the Inspector General and local Congress members. Hangar One is being stripped of its toxic siding this year and this week the metal skeleton underneath became exposed for the first time. Preservationists hope it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remain that way for long, but at this point, it could remain a bare skeleton for years. The idea of the city taking on ownership of hangar has gained support from some preservationists, but city officials have yet to make any visible action in that direction since Mayor Jac Siegelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments last month that the city would certainly study the idea if asked to by federal legislators. The RAB meets 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 14, at the Mountain View Senior Center, 266 Escuela Ave.

Palo Alto will not sell Cubberley site to Foothill By Gennady Sheyner

F

oothill College’s prospects for building a major education center in south Palo Alto suffered a fatal blow Tuesday morning when the Palo Alto City Council decided not to sell a portion of Cubberley Community Center to the college. For the second straight meeting, the council held a late-night discussion that dragged on past midnight and featured comments from community members urging the council not to sell the Cubberley land. But unlike on June 27, when the council asked staff to consider sending a “letter of interest” to Foothill, on Tuesday members decided that the city’s best response to the college district is, “Thanks, but no thanks.” The Palo Alto council decided to send the Foothill-De Anza Community College District a letter stating that it is not interested in selling the Cubberley site, but indicating the city’s willingness to work with Foothill on exploring other sites for Foothill’s use. The council reached its decision not to sell the land after a wave of protests from Palo Alto residents and former elected officials, most of whom argued that the Cubberley space would be needed for a future school. Instead of negotiating with Foothill, the city will now work with the Palo Alto Unified School District to come up with a new plan for Cubberley. Larry Klein, who supported sending a letter of interest to Foothill two weeks ago, quoted Kenny Rogers in explaining why he now proposed sending a letter of non-interest. “Like the old country song says, ‘You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em,’” Klein said. “To put our staff, ourselves and the community through a useless exercise just doesn’t make any sense.” The council voted 8-0, with Gail Price absent, to direct staff to work with the school district on creating a plan for the busy and dilapidated community center at Middlefield Road. The city owns an 8-acre parcel of Cubberley; the school district owns the rest. School district opposition In recent weeks, school officials took a stronger stance on the Cubberley land, which they see as a potential site for a new school. On June 28, one day after the council voted 6-3 to direct staff to draft a “letter of intent,” the school board passed a resolution stating that it believes the district “will need the 35-acre contiguous Cubberley site to provide high quality and comparable K-12 educational services.” The council’s decision Tuesday morning still leaves room for the city to negotiate a land deal with Foothill some time in the future,

though given the lack of available land it’s unclear what such a deal might look like. Foothill, which already has a campus at Cubberley, is seeking to build a new Education Center and intends to make a decision on the site of the new center later this summer. The college district is eying a site in Sunnyvale and has issued a request for offers to private parties. The council’s decision not to sell the Cubberley parcel also raises the possibility that Foothill will leave Palo Alto once it builds the new

education center in another community. Some council members, particularly Karen Holman, have argued that the city should focus not on the 8-acre site, but on the entire community center, which is poorly maintained and facing an uncertain future. In addition to serving as Foothill’s Middlefield Campus, Cubberley houses an eclectic mix of businesses and organizations, including day-care centers, music See CUBBERLEY, page 8

said. When they went to investigate, they found the window that had been closed and locked was open, the screen removed and the blinds ripped from the window frame. Wylie said police are assuming the blinds were damaged when the burglar, or burglars, left in a hurry. In a bizarre twist, the couple found a half-gallon of milk, which had been taken from their refrigerator, open and spilled on their bedroom floor, Wylie said. In all, a cell phone, two laptop computers, a digital camera, a wallet containing $1,000, a duffel bag, several watches and miscellaneous jewelry were stolen from the apartment, Wylie said. Police found no sign of forced entry.

schools and dance studios. “I hope we can get beyond looking at 8 acres and look at the site as a whole,” Holman said. Though this week’s discussion was less heated than the one two weeks ago, when dozens of artists, dancers and city residents urged the council not to sell, the arguments from the public were similar. Former Mayor Mike Cobb said selling the land would be a “tragically bad decision” while former Mayor Lanie Wheeler called the Cubberley parcel the “only site remaining in the community that’s suitable for reuse as a secondary school.” Mayor Sid Espinosa said it was “unfortunate that we got to this place with Foothill,” but noted that the council’s decision still leaves the door open for future discussions. Espinosa and Klein both noted that the Cubberley dilemma has, at the very least, forced the city and the school district to collaborate more closely on a very important local asset. “I don’t know if this is a silver lining, but it’s at least a bronze,” Klein said. “I think we’ll have some serious discussions with the school district.”

for us,â&#x20AC;? she said. Goldman said that the district has done all it can to accommodate as many students it can in the PACT program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The simple fact is there are not enough spaces at the school to accommodate the demand,â&#x20AC;? he said. In the coming years, Goldman said, Stevenson will continue to grow. Last year, the school served about 280 students and this year it will serve about 310, he said.

weighing more heavily on the district than ever before. Yet, while California readily acknowledges these increasing financial burdens on schools, the state is cutting education funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to find other sources of revenue in order to keep pace with increased costs,â&#x20AC;? Goldman said. For now, Goldman said, the district is in decent financial shape and will remain in the black

through the end of the 2012-13 school year. However, many challenges loom on the horizon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first of which could hit the district as early as December. The governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is hoping the state will pull in roughly $4 billion in additional revenues in the fiscal year that began July 1. However, if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, Mountain View Whisman may take a hit of roughly $330 per student. Goldman said the district has figured the potential cuts into the budget â&#x20AC;&#x201D; setting aside roughly $1.5 million to absorb the state reductions, should they come to pass. V

-PDBM/FXT NOBITUARY

RANDY MANN Randy Mann, the eldest of seven brothers and sisters who came of age in Mountain View in the 1960s and 1970s, died from complications resulting from prostate cancer on July 7. He was 56. Randy, this reporter’s uncle, grew up working in the restaurant business and paid his own tuition at St. Francis High School by working as a bus boy at L’Omelette French restaurant

in Palo Alto with his father, Emery Mann, who was a waiter and a chef there. Even as a young child in Chicago, he filled in as a restaurant dishwasher, standing on a milk crate, and lived above a restaurant in a house that always smelled like fried chicken. In high school, Randy was known for his colorful, fashionable clothes, his love of dancing and his popularity with girls. He developed a love for scuba diving and photography, his favorite

subjects being sunrises and sunsets. He delivered the Mountain View News Herald on a route that included Moffett Field, where he and his brother challenged sailors to pool games for money. He and his brother Emery lived on their Schwinn bicycles, riding as far as San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Randy went into the bar and restaurant business and became bar manager at the Odyssey, a popular disco in Sunnyvale. He eventually went into the housing development business for the shorter hours, becoming a superintendent of construction.

His happiest moments were hosting holiday family gatherings in his home in Manteca and fishing with his father and son Patrick. A backpacking trip through the glacial valleys and lakes of Desolation Wilderness left such an impression on Randy as a young man that his ashes will be scattered there, where his father’s ashes also rest. In Randy’s final days he gave away all his belongings, made a scrapbook for his son, wrote love letters to his wife Rhonda and asked his mom to make sure that he was always remembered. He

was a loyal friend to his family, a man many confided in. The family plans to celebrate his life every year. Randy is survived by his wife Rhonda Mann; son Patrick Mann; mother Jeanne Mann; two brothers and four sisters; and a dozen nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Emery Mann. Funeral services are set for Friday, July 15, at 2 p.m. in Lakewood Memorial Park, 900 Santa Fe Avenue, Hughson, near Modesto. —Daniel DeBolt

SCHOOLS NEED MUSIC VOLUNTEERS Music for Minors is looking for volunteers to sign up for training to teach young elementary students music in local schools. Training begins in mid-September and will take place in Los Altos and Redwood City. The training promises to provide volunteers with all the tools necessary to teach music in an elementary classroom, such as basic music theory, rhythm and movement activities and classroom management strategies. The only requirements are a passion for singing, interest in working with children and availability to teach 30 minutes weekly during the school year, according to a July 6 press release.

In an email on Monday Macias said Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans were â&#x20AC;&#x153;crystal clearâ&#x20AC;? to her when she made her comments Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starting out with proposed private bridges is a rash proposal as these are public lands on all sides,â&#x20AC;? Macias said in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was out walking SCT this weekend between Crittenden and Charleston on the trail â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the entire wildlands, wildlife, outdoor experience would be destroyed. This is a migratory bird path and development in this nature hardly seems â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? to me.â&#x20AC;? Macias added that an environmental impact report is needed to address those concerns. The tone at Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting was surprisingly critical from a majority of the council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My gut feeling is extremely negative on this,â&#x20AC;? said Council member Bryant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it is of any benefit to Mountain View. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything particularly convenient about it for us. I hate private streets. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine a private bridge.â&#x20AC;? Bryant commented again on

Music For Minors is a nonprofit organization that brings back music programs, which have been eliminated from many local elementary classrooms due to budget cutbacks, through trained volunteers and professional music educators. The organization benefits schools in the Los Altos School District; however, it does not extend to the Mountain View Whisman School District. Contact MFM at 650-237-9130 or www.mfm.org for details about the next scheduled volunteer information meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Hannah Kim

The developers of a proposed co-housing project at 445 Calderon Ave. are hosting a reception on

Sunday, July 24, from 1-3 p.m. to introduce the community to their plans for the site. Refreshments, site tours and brief speeches by members of MVCC/Calderon are on tap for the afternoon, says David Burwen of Venture Development Group. The 1.3-acre site includes the 1880s Bakotich house, known as the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second oldest home. Recent plans for the co-housing project no longer call for removing or demolishing the historic house. Restoring the house to its original, smaller size and moving it to the front of the 1.3-acre property, where it would be used as a guest house, could save it. The shared housing would be a three-story, 19-unit condominium building added to the property.

Saturday in response to Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clarification. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remain very concerned about overwhelming the North Bayshore environment with concrete, asphalt, and vehicular traffic,â&#x20AC;? Bryant wrote in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I welcome better connectivity for bikes and pedestrians, and as a City we have worked and continue to work hard to improve connectivity and reduce the need for cars. The proposed bridges are an easy old-fashioned solution that will conflict with the purpose of the Stevens Creek Trail as a pedestrian and bike-friendly connector; why not look for an out-of-the-box and innovative solution that will enhance our environment?â&#x20AC;? The reasons why the public would want to use the bridges, the spokesperson said, would be convenient access across the creek

to RT Jones Road at NASA Ames, which is currently inaccessible. There would also be new ways to access a short trail along the eastern edge of the creek, though it is already accessible by a light vehicle bridge at Crittenden Lane and a footbridge further north. Google also released an official statement on Friday about the bridges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of the Stevens Creek Crossings Project is to both increase connectivity in the North Bayshore area as well as access and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, emergency shuttle vehicles and public transit. We believe this project will benefit the city of Mountain View and the community at large. We look forward to working with all parties involved to achieve these mutually beneficial goals.â&#x20AC;?

NLETTERS VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

ow that Google has clarified its plan to build a pair of small bridges across Stevens Creek that would be open to pedestrians, bikes and private transit vehicles (but no automobiles), we hope City Council members will reconsider their sometimes harsh criticism of the project that came out at last week’s meeting. During the initial discussion of the bridges, council members had the mistaken impression that the spans would be private, for use of Google employees only. Not so, a company spokesperson told the Voice last Friday, saying that while Google would own the bridges, they would be open to “essentially anyone who wants to use them,” which would include walkers and bicyclists as well as passengers on buses and shuttles. And ironically, the company said it hopes the bridges will minimize impact on the trail, a dramatically different point of view than the council members, who criticized the very idea of a building a bridge over the beloved trail. It should come as no surprise that Google would want a bridge to link its current North Bayshore headquarters to a planned 1.2 million-square-foot campus at NASA Ames, right across the creek. Over the last several years, the company has made no secret of its plan to open a major “Planetary Ventures” division there that would be under construction by 2013 and could ultimately be home to 5,000 employees and include recreation facilities, a childcare center and cafeteria services. But when Google unveiled plans for the bridge at last week’s City Council meeting, company officials were greeted with a wave of protest from several council members who believed that the company would not permit the public to use the bridge. In addition, members said the bridge was not compatible with the Stevens Creek Trail, which Mayor Jac Siegel said was “Priority 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5...” with the city. Even an additional $700,000 a year in property tax revenue failed to sway Siegel away from the hard position on the bridges. In our view, the bridge is hardly a surprise and is totally appropriate for Google to build, given its ambitious expansion plans in both Mountain View proper and its 42-acre campus at NASA Ames. Surely a way can be found to engineer a pair of small bridges that will be compatible with the Stevens Creek Trail and the natural setting of the area, including views of the nearby marshlands and San Francisco Bay. Ultimately, the city will have the final say on the environmental impact report on the two bridges, which in the illustrations shown at the last week’s council meeting appear to be low-slung and could force the trail to be moved from atop the levee, creating some ups and downs trail advocates may not appreciate. Perhaps a better design can be found that will not interrupt trail users in any way, and still accomplish Google’s goal of connecting its campuses. The bridges will be the first link from Bayshore to the north portion of the NASA Ames property. Hikers, cyclists and people riding mass transit will have easy access between Moffett Field and North Bayshore. Since this would be largely funded by Google, it is an opportunity that has few down-sides. The city should work to make this a project that will protect the trail, provide utility for Google employees and guaranteed access to the public.

ONLY FLAG IS MISSING AT JULY 4TH CONCERT Another great concert and fireworks at Shoreline on July 4th, but there continues to be one thing missing every year: an American flag. Yes, there is some bunting on the railing, but it is very disappointing to sing the national anthem with nary a flag in sight. Couldn’t some entity lend a flag on a pole for the stage for this one evening? Patricia Evans Bonita Avenue

THERE’S LOTS TO LOVE ABOUT MOUNTAIN VIEW Several years ago I lived in Mountain View on Ortega Avenue. It was a peaceful neighborhood where an afternoon stroll felt safe and enjoyable, walking along tree-lined streets, watching dog walkers, bicyclists and the occasional elderly couple moving slowly together. What a wonderful community with great local hot spots, family-oriented events such as the yearly Art and Wine Festival and quiet neighborhoods where people reach out to their friends next door. I might sound like I am painting an idealist view of a town where I would like to live, but in all reality this is what Mountain View seemed to be ... just a great town to call home. Actually Mountain View is very close to the town where I was raised — Los Altos. I am a

South Bay girl at heart. Of course, like any community in the Bay Area and the country, Mountain View has its share of struggles, especially in this economy, but for the most part Mountain View is one of the best towns I have ever called home. I look back on Mountain View with fondness and a sense that a Mountain View resident is a happy resident. Here’s to Mountain View! Sharon Ronsse, San Jose

OUTRAGED OVER $225,000 SETTLEMENT FOR TEACHER In the private sector, in an “atwill” state like California, either the employer or employee can terminate the employment at any time with proper notice and the two will part ways. It happens all the time without commotion. That’s why I’m outraged to read in last week’s Voice that a problem teacher (Patricia Polifrone) was fired from her position in 2009 and then paid $225,000 in a settlement. If bad teachers cannot be easily (or inexpensively) dismissed, school districts will not be able to afford good teachers and the students will suffer. This illustrates why the public education system is terminally ill and the malignant tendrils of the teacher unions are the root cause. Dan Waylonis Stierlin Road

Refined and relaxed NEW MENU, CHEF AND CASUAL AMBIANCE BRING FRESHNESS TO PALO ALTO’S MANTRA By Dale F. Bentson

T

he Indian subcontinent has always met California cuisine at Mantra, the fiveyear-old restaurant on Emerson Street in Palo Alto. The original tilt had been towards India. Recently, the axis has shifted more towards California with accents and overtones of India. A small plate/large plate menu debuted in March along with new executive chef Shachi Mehra, an experienced professional with an accomplished resume. There are two dozen tapas-styled small-plate offerings and more than a dozen entrees that can be ordered as full or half orders.

Every dish I tried was appealing: some more exciting than others, but there was nothing I can’t recommend. Mantra is the brainchild of Ashwani Dhawan, who also owns SliderBarCafe on University Avenue. The chef and menu aren’t the only changes at his Mantra. Gone is the partition that separated the dining room and lounge; gone are the tablecloths and formality of ambiance. It’s decidedly more casual now, but still aesthetically appealing, open and spacious, with bare woodtopped tables, and more affordable and approachable. The small-plates part of the

t didn’t take long for businesswoman, Bella Awdisho, to recognize something was missing in Mountain View. After long research, it became apparent that finding a one-of-a-kind restaurant to bring to the Mountain View area would not be easy. “I just could not see opening another run-of-the-mill restaurant in an area filled with such innovation” said Mrs. Awdisho. Her search ended when she found Pizzeria Venti, a small boutique pizzeria based in Italy. Her introduction to Italian cuisine was in-depth, to say the least. It began with a culinary arts program that included training under the Tuscany sun. “The training was really eye-opening. I learned about the nuances of true Italian cooking; about the quality and passion that goes into every dish. It’s amazing.” said Bella. “Covering everything from pasta and sauces to the tradition of Italy famous “pizza al taglio” or pizza by the cut, the training was a once-in-a-lifetime experience which is simply not available to most restaurateurs.”

Traveling in Italy

A

wdisho said that she was extremely anxious to start her own Pizzeria Venti right here in Mountain View. “I recognized the uniqueness of our location,” she noted “so I put many resources into the marketing of the location. We continue to offer to our customers many of the dishes I was introduced to in Italy.” So successful was this introduction that Awdisho had to double the size of her kitchen, adding additional equipment to handle the demand. Executive Chef, Marco Salvi, the training chef in Italy, provided many new recipes for use in her restaurant. Chef Marco provided some insight “The ingredients say it all. We work to provide a finished dish which will honor its origins and create a wonderful experience for our customers.”

Authenticity – Not just a word

E

ach new dish is hand selected with an eye towards authenticity. Even its rustic style pizza has a bit of Italia in it, made daily on-premise and using only imported water from Italy. “For me, one of the most important components of the training in Italy was the cultural understanding of these recipes. I was able to bring this back to our customers,” said Bella. She continues, “I know our customers really appreciate what we do. We are so grateful that they allow us our passion.”

menu offers an array of options. Steamed mussels masala ($8.95) was a near-overflowing bowl of black bivalves blanketed in a thick sauce of tamarind, fennel and coconut. The masala, a blend of spices, gave the dish a delicious piquancy. I thought the crispy greens ($4.95) terrific. Arugula and spinach leaves had been lightly battered, deep-fried and piled high on a small platter. The batter was a tad thicker than a tempura batter and suited the leaves perfectly. The dish came with a tasty tamarind chutney. The Chat Chat fried popovers ($4.95) were golf ball-sized and stuffed with potato and chickpeas and topped with tamarind and mint chutneys. Dhawan told me this is considered street food in India. The day boat scallops ($11.95) had been perfectly seared and retained their meaty juiciness. The scallops were set on a tangy sauce of pink peppercorns, fennel, cauliflower puree and caviar. The mollusks nearly melted on the tongue. The lamb lollipops ($9.95) were

fun to eat and the heartiest of the small-plate offerings. Ground lamb was rolled into balls and rubbed with green chilies. The sticks of the lollipops were cinnamon sticks. Tamarind-andmushroom chutney accompanied. Large plates are offered in two sizes, full or as half orders. The half orders are larger than small plates, which is somewhat confusing. With full orders there is plenty to share; half orders you might want to keep for yourself. The methi pork chops ($11.95 half, $19.95 full) were marinated Porterhouse (center-cut) chops. A good portion of dill potatoes accompanied. Garlic and fenugreek were used in the marinade. The chops were juicy, fork-tender and spicy but not pungent enough to detract from the tasty meat. Fenugreek is a savory, slightly bitter herb that is available as leaves, seeds or as a spice. Methi refers to seeds. Mixed seafood curry (($9.95/$15.95) was aromatic, zesty, poached seafood: mostly salmon, scallops and shrimp, in a light coconut curry that was snappy enough to be remembered. Paneer ravioli (one size-$15.95) was a giant pastry puff stuffed

with paneer cheese, cauliflower, mushrooms, spinach and cumin. Paneer is a fresh-made, non-melting curd cheese made without rennet, the coagulating agent. The serving was generous and the flavors intriguing. Cumin added an unexpected punch. Mantra has relaxed its beverage menus as well. Cocktails and beer are available by the carafe and pitcher. The wine menu retains its strength with more than two-dozen selections available by the glass. Full bottles are dominated by California and French selections. Since my last review in 2006, the composition of the list has been revised in favor of more affordable, less prestigious, yet very drinkable labels. For dessert, the house-made kulfi ($2.49) was a generous silky scoop of Indian ice cream flavored with cardamom over marinated cherries and blackberries. The trio of custards ($5.95) included a tea-infused chocolate brulee that was surprisingly astringent, a lush lick-the-spoon pot de creme, and a lip-smacking coconut caramel. A grand conclusion to a flavor-packed meal. The lunch buffet ($10.95) offers

NMOVIEREVIEWS

HORRIBLE BOSSES ---

(Century 16, Century 20) Nearly everyone can relate to working under an abusive or intrusive boss, but few employers can rival those depicted in this aptly titled chuckler. Tight-knit buddies Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) are suffering the transgressions of their three truly loathsome higher-ups. Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boss, Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey), is the bane of the bunch, a cruel and callous egomaniac who treats Nick worse than a dirty doormat. Kurtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boss, Bobby Pellitt (Colin Farrell), is a selfish and irresponsible cocaine addict; and Daleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful dentist boss, Julia Harris (Jennifer Aniston), makes sexual harassment an obscene norm at the workplace. Bubbling frustration and a night of drinking lead Nick, Dale and Kurt to hatch an ill-advised murder plot. Soon they are turning to advice from a shady neâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er-do-well (Jamie Foxx) and strategizing ways to off their bosses with all the intelligence of a throw pillow. As they get further immersed in their quickly unraveling scheme, all hell-arity breaks loose. Rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug material. 1 hour, 40 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; T.H.

LARRY CROWNE --

(Century 16, Century 20) Directed, produced and co-written by Tom Hanks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Larry Crowneâ&#x20AC;? is a featherweight dramedy of the new economy. Hanks stars as the title character, a model employee fired from big-box store â&#x20AC;&#x153;UMartâ&#x20AC;? under the rationale that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; since he never went to college â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he has no prospects for advancement within the company. The divorced Larry lives in a suburban house thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. 1 hour, 39 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

SUPER 8 --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the summer of 1979, and a group of geeky middle schoolers sneak out at midnight to make a movie. They are excited about their improved storyline â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not to mention explosives, fake blood and zombies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the prospects of winning a film-festival award. A spectacular crash (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Production values!â&#x20AC;?) spins the narrative into a sci-fi thriller. The survivors must use their wits in a world turned dangerous by a mysterious monster and hostile â&#x20AC;&#x153;othersâ&#x20AC;? from the U.S. Air Force. A hero named Jack (Kyle Chandler of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friday Night Lightsâ&#x20AC;?) emerges as the leader of the good guys. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language and some nudity. 1 hour, 52 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; S.T.
