Deadline looms for whooping cough shots STUDENTS NEED PROOF OF BOOSTER SHOT OR WAIVER WHEN SCHOOL STARTS By Nick Veronin


See EDI, page 9

bout a third of Mountain View elementary students still need to get whooping cough booster shots before school starts, and high school students could be turned away from class if they haven’t been immunized by the time school starts. Under a new law, seventh- through 12thgrade students at Mountain View schools, along with the rest of California, must prove that they have received a pertussis booster shot. State Assembly Bill 354, which was signed into law in September 2010 by Arnold Schwarzenegger, mandates that any student without documentation for the shot will not be allowed to attend school. The requirement applies to seventh- through 12th-graders in 2011-12, but will only apply to seventh-graders in subsequent years. It was passed in response to last year’s outbreak of pertussis, commonly called whooping cough. Officials at both the Mountain View Whisman and Mountain View-Los Altos school districts began working with students and their families as early as January

Mathy Stanislaus, the EPA assistant administrator of the Office of Solid Waste Siegel and Emergency Response, the EPA program overseeing the nation’s Superfund site cleanups. Siegel, an active member of the Moffett Field Restoration Advi-

sory Board, was given the “2011 Citizen Excellence in Community Involvement” award July 19 at the EPA’s Community Involvement Training Conference in Washington, D.C. “In Mountain View we have found that an empowered community offers constructive input, and as a result we are listened to. Our success has not only helped protect our families from toxic environmental exposures, but it has served as a national model for community engagement,”

n an effort to improve math and science scores, the Mountain View Whisman School District has begun contracting with an education research company to teach teachers how to teach better and

more efficiently. With the help of a $1 million grant from Google, the district has hired DataWORKS to train teachers on Explicit Direct Instruction, a methodical teaching system designed to engage students while at the same time allowing teachers to quickly

identify those students who are having trouble with the material. The idea is to address confusion the moment it arises. “Instead of waiting for the quiz on Friday, we’re finding out right then and there,” said

EPA honors Lenny Siegel By Andrea Gemmet


he Environmental Protection Agency is honoring Mountain View’s Lenny Siegel as its “Superfund Citizen of the Year” for his work in the community. Siegel is the executive director of the Center for Public Environmental Oversight in Mountain View, where he has long


been involved in the cleanup of the Superfund site at the Naval base at Moffett Field and the Middlefield-Ellis-Whisman (MEW) study area that is affected by fumes from contaminated groundwater. “You serve as a shining example for other communities faced with the challenges that come with having a hazardous waste site in their community,” said


to ensure that the new requirement is met. About 67 percent of next year’s seventh- and eighth-grade students — about 850 children by the latest count — have received whooping cough booster shots, according to Stephanie Totter, director of administrative services with the Mountain View Whisman School District. In an effort to get ahead of the requirement, a free whooping cough vaccination clinic was held at Graham Middle School at the end of the 2010-11 school year, Totter said. The district is prepared to hold another clinic “depending on the need.” No such clinics are planned for the 3,600 students of the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District. Superintendent Barry Groves said he hopes that the mail and email reminders sent to students and their families will be enough. “We’ve been letting people know for a long time and have sent out many reminders,” Groves said. While Totter’s district plans to take advantage of the state’s 30-day grace period, Groves said See WHOOPING COUGH, page 11

said Siegel upon receiving the award. The honor is “very well-deserved,” said William Berry, the former deputy director of NASA Ames who is currently the community co-chair of RAB. “I have engaged with Lenny from both sides of the table and over the years have learned to respect his knowledge, dedication and integrity while appreciating his vision and insights for See SEIGEL, page 7

describing the incident. The teen “shouted obscenities� at the officers while running toward them, which prompted the officers to draw their electric stun guns and deploy a police dog. Once the teen saw the police dog he complied with the officer’s orders and laid down on the ground, Wylie said. However, he continued to curse at the officers and refused to stand up after he was handcuffed. When the officers lifted him up, he tried to flee while shackled. Wylie said that once inside the squad car the boy began hitting his head on the plastic partition between the front and back seats, causing a two-inch cut on his forehead. He also tried to kick the doors out. When an officer attempted to check on the teen’s condition, the boy spat blood at the officer, Wylie said. The boy was taken to the hospital, treated for his injuries and booked into juvenile hall, Wylie said.





A Mountain View teenager was arrested after allegedly going on a destructive rampage through a Latham Street convenience store Saturday night, and then violently resisting police officers, a police spokeswoman said. The incident began around 11:52 p.m. on July 23 at the 7-Eleven located at 1905 Latham St., said Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. According to the store’s clerk, the teen approached the checkout counter with a pair of bolt cutters, demanded money and then hit the glass countertop, causing it to shatter. Rather than give the boy any money, the clerk locked himself inside the store’s office and called 911, Wylie said. While the clerk was locked inside the office, the teen struck the office door with the bolt cutters and broke bottles and jars, along with two hot-dogwarming displays, Wylie said. The teen then fled without taking anything. Police officers found a suspect matching the clerk’s description of the would-be robber nearby. “The suspect was not detained easily,� Wylie wrote in an email

Lee Hester, who owns Lee’s Comics in Mountain View, turned his passion for comic books into a career.



wander past the neatly organized rows of graphic novels and dueling superhero motifs at Lee’s Comics in Mountain View. The back office is adorned with original drawings by some of the comic-book industry’s most celebrated artists — Frank Frazetta, David Mack, Alex Ross, Jim Steranko. Lee Hester, the store’s owner and founder, hands me a comic wrapped in thick

black vinyl. It’s a rare copy of Amazing Fantasy No. 15 (August 1962), Spider-Man’s first appearance and one of the hobby’s most prized collectibles. The comic can sell for upwards of $100,000 if it’s in good condition. “It’s an entry-level copy,” Hester says humbly. Dealing in comics many fans would involuntarily drool over is standard practice for Hester. He owns two comic-book stores that

Better students through technology By Nick Veronin


or the past two weeks, a pair of teachers from Graham Middle School have been learning how to bring interactive technology into the classroom. Adriana Reyes, a seventh- and eighth-grade English teacher, along with Leila Dibble, a seventh- and eighth-grade Spanish and math teacher, are enrolled in MERIT — Making Education Relevant and Interactive Through Technology — a yearlong course taught by Foothill

faculty and former program participants through a series of workshops and college courses. “I love it,” Reyes said, reflecting on her first week in the MERIT Summer Institute, which began on July 18, and runs through July 29. Reyes said she has been exposed to a plethora of ideas for engaging her students with a variety of technologies, many of which are available for free online. “Every day, I leave the program eager to start the school year,” she said. Dibble shares Reyes’ enthu-

siasm and said she feels lucky to be a part of the exclusive program, which allows only a limited number of participants and which pays teachers $2,500 for their time. Though she has used technology in her classes before, Dibble said she now feels inspired to do more. She plans to have her students produce videos and post them online. When students know that their work can be viewed by their peers and won’t See MERIT, page 6

simply be graded and filed away in her drawer, Dibble said they will be more invested in their work. “They’ll say, ‘Wow! I have to do an amazing job.’” This approach of engaging students by placing them in a creative role is called “project-based learning,” said Liane Freeman, director of strategic planning for the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College, the organization that runs the MERIT program. In project-based learning, students participate actively in their own education by working collaboratively with one another to accomplish something. “Technology is an enabler of project-based learning,” Freeman said. “It enables teachers to change how they teach.” By giving students access to the Web-connected computers, for example, and allowing them to search for answers to questions while working on a project, they practice skills that are necessary in the modern workplace — such as teamwork and online research — while also covering the curriculum.

memorize information, anyway,” Reyes said. “I want them to use that information in a meaningful way.” Both Reyes and Dibble said that when they teach their students to research topics on the web, they also challenge them to think critically about what they come across. “It’s really crucial to teach students how and where to find information,” Dibble said — “and then take it one step further and ask, ‘Is this information true?’” Freeman, who has been a teacher as well as a business administrator, said that it is important for students to begin learning the skills that they will one day need to use in the workforce as early as possible. She doesn’t feel there is a danger in bringing technology into schools. She even sees a place for teaching students how to use Twitter, the micro-blogging service that some have criticized for shortening attention spans with its 140-character “tweets.” “Books aren’t going anywhere,” Freeman said. “Kids will still read and write long works. If people are really engaged they won’t limit themselves to 140 characters. They’ll go deeper.” With the MERIT program, Freeman said, teachers are learning how to teach their students to use technology to do just that. V

Four people displaced in apartment fire By Nick Veronin


two-alarm fire displaced residents of two apartments in a Mountain View complex Tuesday night, emergency officials said. No one was injured in the blaze, which was reported at 10:05 p.m. on July 26 at the Barkley Square apartments, located in the 1300 block of Montecito Avenue, according to Jaime Garrett, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View Fire Department. Firefighters from the Moffett Fire Department and the Palo Alto Fire Department helped combat the fire, which was extinguished around 11 p.m.,

Garrett said. The displaced residents — a father, mother and child, and a single man — have been provided temporary housing by the Red Cross. The fire started on the second floor of the two-story complex, in the family’s unit, Garrett said. It then spread into the space inside the roof, known as the soffit. The family’s apartment sustained fire, smoke and water damage. Firefighters had to hack their way through the ceiling of the single man’s apartment to battle the flames, Garrett said. The man’s apartment had smoke and water damage. There was also minor water

damage a third apartment, and firefighters had to cut a small hole in yet another apartment’s ceiling, Garrett said. The residents of these two units were not displaced. Garrett said she did not know in which room the fire started. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, but it appears to be accidental, she said. V

showed up at a Redwood City hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg isn’t telling the whole truth about the incident. According to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie, a 23-year-old man from Lathrop, in San Joaquin County, drove himself to the Redwood City Kaiser at about 2 a.m. on July 22 with a bullet-wound that went through his thigh. The hospital notified Mountain View police, as the man told medical staff he had been shot in the parking lot behind Molly Magee’s, a bar in the 200 block of Castro Street, Wylie said. However, police found no one who had heard or seen the shooting, there were no reports of shots fired in the area, and no bullet or shell casing was found behind the bar, Wylie said. “The victim said there was not a single other person in the parking lot at 2 a.m., but that would have been unlikely, given it was a Friday night and the bars are all open until 2 a.m. and the parking lots don’t usually clear out entirely until closer to 3 a.m.,” Wylie said.

Before heading the Center for Public Environmental Oversight, Siegel served on the Federal Facilities Environmental Restoration Dialogue Committee, where he used his experience at Moffett Field to help design the system of community advisory boards at contaminated federal facilities.

ALARM WORKS Mountain View police are seizing on a thwarted residential burglary to remind locals to set their home security alarms at night. The residents of a home in the 1300 block of Cuernavaca Circle were awakened at about 3 a.m. on July 23 by their home’s burglar alarm, according to police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. One of the residents turned off the home alarm, thinking it had accidentally been tripped. It was not until the next day that the residents discovered that an unlocked window had been opened and the screen had been pried off, Wylie said. Police assume that whoever was attempting to break in to the home was scared off by the alarm. “Their alarm was set and it worked,” Wylie told the Voice, adding that it is important for people to set their burglar alarms when they are out of the house, as well as at night. “Some people think to use the alarms when they leave for the day, but not many people arm them at night. It is very important to do so! The outcome is this: crime thwarted!”

gal, though Hester is more affable and less menacing. Passersby would more likely peg him as a police officer or basketball coach than a comic-shop entrepreneur. Comics, though, have been a passion of Hester’s since before high school. It’s a passion he turned into a career when he opened his first store in Palo Alto’s now-demolished Alma Plaza in 1982. “It was a 700-square-foot store in the back of Alma Plaza. Most people didn’t even know it was there. It was the worst location in Palo Alto for sure,” he said. Hester’s family moved from San Francisco to south Palo Alto when he was 1 year old. He was drawn to superheroes at the age of 10 after spotting a Superman anthology (“Superman: From the 30’s to the 70’s”) at a local bookstore, though his parents rebuked his pleas to purchase it. “Things have changed since back then because back then kids didn’t always immediately get what they wanted. My parents’ standard answer to any question was ‘no.’ Luckily for me my local library, Mitchell Park, turns out they had that book.

world.” And Hester didn’t stop with the Man of Steel — he also checked out “Batman: From the 30’s to the 70’s,” “The Origin of Marvel Comics” and a wealth of similar publications, studying each with an ambitious enthusiasm. He would even sneak eager viewings of the 1960s-era “Batman” TV series from his cracked bedroom door while his parents believed him asleep. Following high school, Hester took on a hodgepodge of odd jobs, including construction work

and as a hotel clerk, but “nothing really clicked.” Meanwhile, he had become a regular attendee of the De Anza flea market, where he would buy and sell comics alongside other collectors. But Hester was struggling, living in rooms not much larger than his current office, commuting in a rundown Volkswagen and munching on a steady diet of Top Ramen. In the summer of 1982, while strolling around his Palo Alto neighborhood, Hester noticed an empty store in the back of Alma Plaza. The land-

lord told Hester he would need a co-signer to lease the space, but his parents were not optimistic about his chances and refused to cosign. The landlord decided to lease the space to Hester anyway to help populate the mostly vacant plaza. “(My parents) were cautious,” Hester said. “They had heard that businesses always fail. I mean, this is well VERONICA WEBER known, that businesses always fail. That’s the riskiest thing you can do, is open a business.” Initially, his parents’ misgivings seemed justified. Lee’s Comics was competing with the dominant Comics & Comix store on Cowper Street, and for the first few years Hester wasn’t turning a profit. He built the shop’s comic-display fixtures himself, served as a one-man staff, used a cigar box in lieu of a traditional cash register and felt fortunate to make a hundred dollars in a day. He would even play board games and watch Bugs Bunny cartoons with the neighborhood kids during lengthy stretches of stagnant business. “I didn’t have any money for fixtures, didn’t have any money for advertising or promotion, didn’t have any money for staff. It was just me seven days a week. Probably the world’s worst comic-book store,” he

said. But Hester would not relent. “Little by little,” he said, the store showed steady improvement, allowing Hester to open a second location in San Mateo in 1987. In 1990 he closed the Alma Plaza location in favor of a more visible spot in Palo Alto, on the corner of El Camino Real and Curtner Avenue, though eventually he shut down that store as well for the more rent-friendly locale in Mountain View. Hester has seen the industry evolve faster than a Marvel mutant over the past 25-plus years. He accurately anticipated the rising popularity of graphic novels in the early 1990s, heavily stockpiling them in his two stores well before most people even realized what a graphic novel was. “If people want to spend the time, and if they enjoy reading, they will find graphic novels that are on par with the best of literature,” he said. He has rubbed elbows with celebrated creators like Stan Lee and Gene Colan. He has watched superhero films proliferate and once-obscure comic conventions become frenzied attractions. And despite business highs and lows and the unpredictability of a transforming industry, the mere mention of comic books ignites a certain spark in Hester’s eyes. It’s as though that 10-year-old child enamored with Superman still dwells somewhere within the father of three. “I think that the so-called ‘nerd culture’ has become the culture. It used to be considered not hip to be into comics. Now everybody’s into them,” he said. — Tyler Hanley is a staff writer for the Voice’s sister paper, the Palo Alto Weekly. V

Cynthia Kampf, a consultant for DataWORKS. Kampf, a former teacher who holds a doctorate in education, recently supervised 16 days of EDI training held at Castro Elementary. During the training, Kampf showed teachers how to use Explicit Direct Instruction method for Mountain View Whisman students who had fallen behind in their studies. All too often, teachers don’t realize which of their students are falling behind until it’s too late, Kampf said. “We used to say, ‘Practice makes perfect,’” Kampf said. “Now, we say, ‘Practice makes permanent.’” When a teacher fails to recognize that a student doesn’t understand a concept early on, that student will either give up on trying or else will continue practicing the wrong way. And “if they practice it wrong, it’s going to be in their brains wrong.” The new system uses carrots and sticks — almost literally — to ensure student participation. The carrots come in the form of whiteboards. In EDI, every student has a whiteboard that they use to answer questions in class. Kampf

said that the whiteboards serves as an incentive for the students, who enjoy showing others that they know the answer to the question. “Kids love to use their hands, too,” she said of the whiteboards. “A lot of kids are tactile learners — they have to use their hands to learn.” The also allow teachers to quickly assess who understands the material and who might need individualized help. This more personalized help can be given one-on-one, or in a smaller group. Once the instructor has determined which students can handle

doing a set of practice problems on their own, he or she can hand out a worksheet and pull those students aside who have been having trouble and help them. The sticks in EDI are actual sticks. Teachers write students names on tongue depressors and draw names at random during class. This ensures that every student is accountable for knowing the material. “One eighth-grade boy told me that the stick system keeps him on his toes,” Kampf said, noting that the boy seemed to like knowing he could be called on any minute. “I

think people are happier when their brains are engaged. When they have to be ready for every question they are engaged.” The program cost the school district about $350,000 according to Mary Lairon, assistant superintendent of Mountain View Whisman. Although Lairon was hesitant to make any definitive statement about the program until more data is available, she said she has been “very impressed” with the DataWORKS system so far. “This program really holds kids accountable,” Lairon said. Furthermore, EDI “holds us more

accountable to make sure the kids understand the lesson.” Lairon said that the EDI method reminded her of the training she received when going to school to be a teacher. “It’s sort of like the fivestep lesson plan, but on steroids,” she said. “It’s much more systematic.” Kampf agreed with Lairon about the systematic nature of the DataWORKS program, but was also quick to say that EDI is not meant to stifle creativity in the classroom. “These are resources for teachers to use,” she said. “This isn’t a script. There is an art to teaching.” V

Braille book brings lunar craters down to earth Craters more than 200,000 miles away from Earth are now within reach for visually impaired readers thanks to a new Braille book that debuted July 18 at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field. “Getting a Feel for Lunar Craters� features tactile diagrams of the lunar surface and is designed to educate the blind

and visually impaired about Earth’s moon, according to NASA. David Hurd, a space science professor at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, worked with tactile engineer John Matelock to create the book after a visually impaired student enrolled in Hurd’s introductory astronomy class, NASA officials said.

Hurd unveiled the book Monday night, July 18, as part of the fourth annual Lunar Science Forum that starts today. Students from the California School for the Blind in Fremont are also scheduled to attend the book’s debut. “NASA’s Lunar Science Institute is committed to the development of resources to bring lunar science into the world

of those who cannot see. ‘Getting a Feel for Lunar Craters’ is one giant step for humankind, making lunar science visible through touch and sound,� the institute’s director Yvonne Pendleton said in a statement.

-PDBM/FXT WHOOPING COUGH Continued from page 1

students at Mountain View, Los Altos and Alta Vista high schools will be turned away on the first day of school unless they can prove they have received the booster shot. In 2010, California health officials said there was an “epidemic” in reported cases of pertussis, a respiratory disease that causes a severe and long-lasting cough. The disease can be deadly for infants

and those with compromised immune systems. Pertussis gets its common name from the whooping sound infected individuals sometimes make as they gasp for breath in the midst of severe coughing spells. Between Jan. 1, 2010, and April 4, there have been 1,428 confirmed, probable and suspected cases of pertussis reported in California, according to Amy Cornell, health information officer for the county’s Public Health Department. Over that same time period there have been 560 confirmed, probable and suspected cases in

Santa Clara County — 37 of them were reported in Mountain View. That was a significant spike for the city, which saw only two cases in 2009. Statewide, 990 cases were reported in 2009. Dr. Marty Fenstersheib, a health officer for Santa Clara County, said he supports the law. “It’s an important vaccine,” Fenstersheib said. “There are always cases of whooping cough, or pertussis. Every year we see a surge.” Laws requiring children to be vaccinated against certain diseases before they enter school are the most effective way to get the

vast majority of the population vaccinated, he said. And the more people in a given community that receive a vaccination, the higher immunity that particular community will have against the disease. Children are already required to be vaccinated against the disease before entering kindergarten. By the time children reach adolescence, though, the initial immunity from the first round of pertussis shots (usually administered during infancy) will have faded, Fenstersheib said. For those who do not wish their child to receive the booster, the

law allows parents to decline the vaccine either for religious reasons or because of personal beliefs. Fenstersheib said he doesn’t recommend skipping the shot. “These are safe vaccines,” he said. “I’ve been around a long time and I’ve seen periods in history when people have opted out of vaccines in large numbers. Because of that, there was a significant outbreak of whooping cough, and some infants got sick and some died.” Booster shots can be obtained at local pharmacy chains, such as Walgreens and CVS. V

Artistic duo mix photos, batik in exhibit By Rebecca Wallace


ven after 40 years of working as a batik artist, Mathangi Sundararajan still lights up when the dye makes the right deep blue or startling red on her cloth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The color really excites me,â&#x20AC;? she says. Indigo is a particular favorite because the dye historically came from India, where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from. In her current show, Sundararajan goes even more global in her palette. The lavender of a Peruvian mountain skyline, the misty hues of London and the Golden Gate Bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orange can all be seen in her batiks now hanging at the Community School of Music and Arts in Mountain View. This palette is also rooted in pixels. The batiks are recreations of travel photos taken by Sundararajanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Arabhi, and are displayed together with them. Most of the photos are from digital cameras, combining modern technology with an age-old art. The dissimilar media make for interesting contrasts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peaceâ&#x20AC;? is a photo that Arabhi Sundararajan took in Bangkok of a serene, reclining golden Buddha, its cheeks and eyelids gleaming. Mathangiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version is done in bright lemon-yellow dye, with its face cocked at a slightly different angle, more mischief in the eyes. Although sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never seen the actual Buddha that her daughter visited, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brought it to life just the same. Arabhi regards the art thoughtfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like her picture better than mine.â&#x20AC;? In another photo, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Am,â&#x20AC;? a llama sits on

a stony surface, the famed ruins of Macchu Picchu barely visible in the background. Mathangi has chosen similar yellows for the llama this time, but the effect is more serene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it looked like it was meditating,â&#x20AC;? Mathangi says of the animal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said it looked proud.â&#x20AC;? While Arabhiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photos are straightforward images, Mathangiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works have wide borders and a dreamlike feel that sometimes has the air of a Pamela Colman Smith tarot card. They are rich with the dynamic cracks (thin lines of dye) so characteristic of batik. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dramatically different way of looking at the

same scene. Although Mathangi Sundararajan lives in Puerto Rico, she brings her artistic vision to the Peninsula every summer, visiting her daughter in Mountain View and teaching batik to adult students at CSMA. In 1968, when she started seriously learning batik, it was thought of mostly as a craft, she said. Inspired by her teacher Uma Batnakar, she came to see it as an art in its own right. The family has lived in several countries, and Arabhi grew up in India. Now Mathangi has made it a mission to bring the Indian

tradition of batik to Puerto Rico, where she also teaches and does demonstrations. Creating a work of batik is a lengthy process, she says. She starts with white cotton cloth, which she boils to remove any starch. After the cloth dries in a cool place, she irons it and draws on her design. Then she heats and applies beeswax and paraffin wax with a watercolor brush on the parts of the picture that she wants to remain white. Batik is a wax-resist dyeing process, which means that when the cloth is dipped in dye, the cloth is not dyed in the places where the wax is. Then comes the process of dipping the cloth into various colors of dye. The lightest colors come first, one at a time, and the cloth must be allowed to dry in between dippings, Sundararajan says. She also repeatedly rewaxes the cloth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lengthy process,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearing as an art in India.â&#x20AC;? Arabhi teaches math at San Jose State University and has pursued photography as a hobby for many years, along with singing Indian classical music. The mother-and-daughter art show is set to be displayed next at the Los Altos Library. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently at the Tateuchi Hall vestibule, Community School of Music and Arts, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View. The exhibit runs through Aug. 11, open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free. Go to or call 650-917-6800. V

State budget cuts hit home

ging comfortably, with all contingencies covered, is something everyone hopes to do, but unfortunately many of us fall short. And when we do, state and federal safety net programs kick in. That is the state’s intention with Medi-Cal, which, among other things, often provides back-up coverage for frail and elderly seniors, including about one-third of those who use the adult day care services offered by Avenidas at the Rose Kleiner Senior Day Health Center in Mountain View. Some 32 low-income seniors that rely on Medi-Cal to attend the adult day care program offered at the Rose Kleiner center on Escuela Avenue may soon be turned away. Due to California’s budget cuts, the state Medi-Cal program will drop its support for low-income seniors in the program on Dec. 1 unless they can pick up more than half the cost of about $76 a day. Given that these participants already qualify for the state subsidy, it is highly unlikely that any of them can afford to pay more for the program. This likely means that this valuable service, which can make the difference between independent living and a nursing home for some, will be out of reach of one of the most vulnerable segments of the city’s senior community. According to the Dept. of Health Care Services, cutting the adult day care benefit will save the state $169 million, a tiny fraction of the California’s multi-billion dollar budget. A deputy director of the department called the upcoming cutbacks “a difficult decision,” but added that “California is facing a very serious budget deficit,” and because Medi-Cal is the state’s second largest program expenditure, it had to be part of any budget solution. And on Monday, Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill that would have replaced adult care with an $85 million program that would serve only the neediest recipients. Instead, now the state’s strategy is to provide enough transition time to move those receiving day care to other programs. That is not a good solution, said Lenny Park, director of the center for Avenidas. Park is a strong supporter of the day care program, and she does not view it as “optional.” “ These people need to be monitored,” Park told the Voice last week, saying many are immobile due to various health conditions, including dementia or an injury. Nurses in the program administer medications and monitor the health of participants. Dieticians make sure that special nutritional regimens are followed and aides plan mentally stimulating and entertaining activities. All of this will be gone Dec. 1 and care providers believe that as many as one fourth of seniors now receiving Medi-Cal-funded adult day care will wind up in nursing homes, at a much higher cost for the state. Without a doubt, the state needs to trim its expenses and MediCal is a huge portion of the budget. But to pull the rug out from under frail and elderly senior citizens who have a much better quality of life with adult care than in a nursing home makes no sense. The Governor and the Legislature may be able to point to a $169 million budget reduction in the short term, but the long-term cost will be much greater and be borne by thousands of senior citizens who will lose meaningful care for no good reason.




DISTRICT REVISES THREAT OF CREEK FLOODING The Santa Clara Valley Water District’s push for a 5-acre, 23foot-deep flood basin at Cuesta Annex is being reevaluated. During the July 13 meeting at their Santa Clara headquarters, district engineer Afshin Rouhani said 250 acres of the Permanente Creek watershed have been removed from their flood projection. This means the flood projection is 10 percent smaller than previously anticipated. The threat of flood has always been miniscule — 1 percent probability in 100 years that water will reach a height of 1 foot. In addition, no historic data exists for a Permanente Creek Flood. With the creation of the Permanente Creek diversion channel in 1959, 116-acre feet of water per hour has been diverted from Permanente to Stevens Creek. Add to that capacity improvements made to Permanente Creek and Hale Creek from 1955-2002, water capacity is now 181 acre feet per hour, enough to keep lower Permanente Creek neighborhoods dry. The Mountain View City Council has received 477 signatures from people opposed to the Cuesta Annex flood basin. The council initiated a city-wide survey regarding how to best use the Cuesta Annex. From 175 responses, the majority opinion was to leave the Cuesta Annex in its natural state. Even past requests for athletic playing fields have been met at Shoreline. When will the city of Mountain View affirm the 2006 city-wide master plan consensus that existing wild animal habitats, walking paths, grasslands, mature trees, orchard remnant and historic views of the Santa Cruz Mountains be preserved? Neighboring communities such as Sunnyvale, Saratoga, Cupertino, Palo Alto, Los Altos and even San Jose have protected orchards and natural areas within

their city limits. Their citizens insisted upon it and their respective city councils listened. It’s time for Mountain View’s to do the same. Cynthia Riordan Saratoga

STOP TO ADMIRE HANGAR ONE’S UNMASKED BEAUTY It’s timely to mention the sole visual benefit of Hangar One’s ongoing skin removal — the opportunity to view from outside the remarkably beautiful spiderweb of its internal structure. Since our hangar derived from an Ohio design by Karl Arnstein, chief engineer of the GoodyearZeppelin Co. and designer of the airship ‘Macon’ it housed, it reflects an airship-inspired structure, a complex lightweight design, validated by cutting-edge wind tunnel testing for the 1930s. As such it is the nearest replica we have of the mammoth airship it once housed, rather anchored to the earth than released into the sky, and built of steel in lieu of aluminum. So take this rare opportunity to admire the structure while visible, reminding ourselves of the hope and expectation that it will soon be clad in a new skin for weathering, and not callously and ruthlessly demolished.

he Quattro restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel in East Palo Alto is exactly what one would expect from one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading hoteliers: stellar wine list, impeccable service and sophisticated food created by an accomplished chef. It also has tariffs that are on the high side but not absurd. Architecturally, the restaurant is a succession of intersecting glass planes. It is a comfort-controlled conservatory, chic and dazzling. Beautiful but also austere, the dining room is sparse with expensive details: a glass box with hardwood floors, bare wood tables and uphol-

stered but straight-back chairs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an expense account-driven venue of angular, masculine composition. Executive chef Marco Fossati hails from a long line of professional cooks. Born in Portofino, Italy, he has worked kitchens in Italy, London, Berlin, Hong Kong and Egypt. He is responsible for the hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s considerable business and reception catering, as well as room service, and a large restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When I last reviewed Quattro in 2006, Fossati was chef de cuisine and Alessandro Cartumini was executive chef. Fossati transferred to Egypt for two years but has been fully in charge of the East Palo Alto kitchen since November.

buon appetito!

8FFLFOE New chefs bring change and one was simplifying the menu. There are now five appetizers, five pastas, five entrees and eight desserts, plus cheeses. There is a four-course chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasting menu ($55) and a bar menu that offers more casual fare: pizza, appetizers, cheese and dessert. Every ingredient possible is locally farm-sourced. Seated in the dining room, I loved the chanterelle mushroom trifolati ($13): grilled peaches, garlic and parsley, all drizzled with a 20-yearold balsamic vinegar. The earthy chanterelles had been thinly sliced and fried with garlic and parsley, then reassembled on the plate with tiny wedges of the grilled peaches. Old balsamic is sweet and syrupy, and juxtaposed wonderfully with the woodsy mushrooms. Also noteworthy was the vitello tonnato ($12), poached top-round veal, pickled ramps, a tickle of thyme and creamed ahi tuna. Sounds a little strange but it was delicious. Vitello tonnato can be traced back to 19th-century Piedmont, where the tuna was pounded into pulp with olive oil to make it creamy. We shared a second course of smoked pappardelle ($15) with duck ragĂş and pecorino cheese. The kitchen happily split the order onto two plates but charged us an additional $4 for doing so. Not cool for

a dinner that approached $200 for two people. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never experienced an upcharge when ordering multiple courses. The pasta was good but not $19 good. The wild striped sea bass ($28) was sauteed in Marsala (a fortified Sicilian wine), with sultana raisins and caponata (sauteed eggplant and other veggies). The fish tasted freshoff-the-line, delicate and barely flaky. The Marsala and raisins gave the dish a resonant note of sweetness but did not overpower the bass. The organic chicken ($26) came with a Meyer lemon confit (thin slices of lemon poached in olive oil) and taggiasche olives from the Italian Riviera, black, oily and sweet. It is a Mediterranean dish I will never tire of eating. Quattroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bar area is divided into two oblong sections. One room has a modern marble and glass fireplace, stone walls and shelves of Joan MirĂł art books. Flanking the fireplace are a half-dozen modernist paintings that mirror MirĂłâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abstract expressionist style. The bar menu is more relaxed but some items appear on both bar and dining room menus. BBQ sliders ($13) featured Point Reyes blue cheese. The fork-tender meat was piled into mini-buns and the cheese oozed deliciously. A Madeira onion dipping sauce accompanied.

Dungeness crab tempura roll, $6 for three rolls, was packed with crab and salmon. The dish was mostly salmon, chives, pickled ginger, wasabi and dipping sauce. Great finger food that whetted the appetite. Parma ham pizza ($14) was piled with arugula and curls of Bellwether Farmsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soft-ripened crescenza cheese. The crust was magnificent: thin, crisp but not crackery, just pliant enough with a hint of sweetness to it. All desserts were $9. Pastry See QUATTRO, page 16

chef Minoru Miyazaki’s sweet endings were all terrific. The Neapolitan baba al rum featured crisp almond caramel, citrus rum syrup and vanilla whipped cream. The Sicilian cannoli trio was a compote of sweet black Bing cherry with a breath of mint. The chocolate tortino was similar to a lava cake. Hot chocolate oozed from the spongy cake when the cake was pricked. A scoop of honey gelato accompanied. My favorite was the tiramisú with cocoa powder, mascarpone and espresso. The round cake

BUCK ---

(Palo Alto Square) In a manner of speaking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;horsing aroundâ&#x20AC;? is Buck Brannamanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business, since he crisscrosses the country teaching four-day horse-training clinics nine months out of the year. But as the schedule implies, no one takes training horses more seriously than Brannaman, the primary inspiration for Nicholas Evansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Horse Whisperer.â&#x20AC;? Brannaman is the subject of Cindy Meehlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buck.â&#x20AC;? In extensive footage shot during his clinics, Brannaman walks around wearing his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Madonna micâ&#x20AC;? and demonstrates how a properly trained horse can and will follow a humanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost imperceptible physical prompting; as such he offers a panacea for equine abuse. Brannamanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intolerance of animal abuse turns out to be empathic. Meehl lays out for us the origins of this unusual character in the American Western cultural landscape, beginning with his career as a child performer under a stage dad who was a raging alcoholic. Overall, both Buck and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buckâ&#x20AC;? endorse sensitive care for the voiceless, whether they be horses or cowed children. Rated PG for thematic elements, mild language and an injury. One hour, 29 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.


(Century 16, Century 20) In 1943, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is the archetypal 98-pound weakling, but he wants nothing more than to join the Army. Health issues including asthma repeatedly get him branded 4F, but as a bully tells him during a beatdown, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when to give up. Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-American sticktoitiveness pays off when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chosen for a supersoldier program. Treated with super-serum and â&#x20AC;&#x153;vita-rays,â&#x20AC;? scrawny Steve Rogers becomes brawny Captain America. Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action. Two hours, four minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.


(Century 16, Century 20) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2â&#x20AC;? caps the series with visual panache and emotional punch. The wizarding world has taken a dark turn as the vile Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) makes a final violent push for complete dominion. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his two steadfast companions, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), set out to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes (magical items that empower Voldemort). Their perilous quest leads them to a vault at Gringotts Wizarding Bank, a hitched ride aboard an angry dragon and a meeting with Aberforth Dumbledore (Ciaran Hinds), brother of murdered Hogwarts school headmaster Albus. Meanwhile, Voldemort and his band of maniacal Death Eaters, including the ruthless Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter), prepare for a full-fledged assault on Hogwarts. Rated PG-13 for some sequences of intense action violence and frightening images. 2 hours, 5 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; T.H.

for every body & fitness level!

OT Fitness Boot Camp (TUESDAY & THURSDAY 6:30am) is not your average fitness class. It will be taught by former Marines, and will challenge everyone from the most fit individuals to people just getting into fitness. We won’t be using your average fitness equipment, so get ready to have a good time lifting ammo cans, flipping tires and using your own body weight to transform your body! OT Fitness Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (MONDAY 4pm & 7:30pm, WEDNESDAY 5pm & 7:30pm & FRIDAY 5pm) is a unique training approach to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighting system. Our BJJ training program is designed to promote the development of mind and body. The training will forge in you a solid base of power and control as you learn a multitude of submissions, escapes and counters. The largest way in which our BJJ training differs from the classic system, is by whole heartily embracing the philosophy that there is more than one way to solve any given problem. Improvisation and adaptation play key roles in our training methods. The students play a much larger part in the learning process as they are encouraged to experiment and develop their own personal style.
