ountain View elementary and middle schools are taking on more students this year and adding to their course offerings, and the local high school district is remaining about the same size but expanding the

number of classes they offer, officials from both districts said. According to superintendents Barry Groves of the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District and Craig Goldman of the Mountain View Whisman School District, each of their respective districts is

prepared for a growing student body, even as they have been forced to make difficult cuts in recent years. However, a week into the school year, the Mountain View-Los Altos district had yet to exceed the number of stuSee BACK TO SCHOOL, page 11

new investigation into the 2004 shooting death of 17-year-old Alejandro “Alex” Fernandez has led to the arrest of two main suspects, the alleged driver and shooter. The father of the driver, a city employee, was also arrested for allegedly lying under oath in front of a grand jury. The arrests were made thanks to an FBI-organized task force working out of the Mountain View police department which re-interviewed dozens of witnesses when the case was reopened last year. Major breaks in the case came with the help of something police say is rarely used in Santa Clara County — a grand jury investigation — something more commonly used by the FBI. Witnesses who refused to talk to police in the past were subpoenaed and successfully made to testify under oath in front of the grand jury with the threat of perjury charges hanging over them. “We always felt like people weren’t giving us information they had,” said police spokeswoman Elizabeth Wylie. Fernandez was fatally shot while walking down Rengstorff Avenue near Latham Street on Sept. 24, 2004 with his friends. Wylie said Fernandez, a junior at Los Altos High School who had told police he was a Sureño gang member, approached the car and was allegedly shot multiple times in the torso by 24-year-old Mountain View resident Giovanni Duarte, a self-admitted member of the rival Norteño gang called “Varrio Mountain View,” or “VMV,” Wylie said. He was 17 at the time. “We think the motive was gangrelated but a random act of gang violence,” that did not specifically

target Fernandez, Wylie said. Police quietly arrested Duarte March 23 and he is being held without bail. He faces 50 years to Anthony life in prison on Figueroa charges of gangrelated murder. And police arrested Mountain View resident Anthony Figueroa, 23, at his Leong Arthur Drive home on Figueroa Friday for allegedly driving his family’s car to enable the driveby-sho ot i ng. Figueroa, another member of the VMV gang, also Giovanni faces 50 years to Duarte life in prison for gang murder charges, said Frank Carruba, a deputy district attorney for Santa Clara County. Also arrested Friday was Figueroa’s father, Arthur Figueroa, 49, a parks maintenance worker for the city of Mountain View whom police believe has ties to the VMV gang. Carruba said Arthur Figueroa “lied regarding contact and conversations with murder suspect Marlan Ruiz pertaining to grand jury proceedings.” Because of a gang enhancement and a prior strike on his record, Figueroa faces up to 17 years in prison instead of a maximum of four years for perjury, Carruba said. Arthur Figeroa was arrested while riding as a passenger in a See COLD CASE, page 13

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Nick Gonzales.

Do you think Mountain View needs more affordable housing? Are you past due for your check-up and cleaning? “On a whole, I think there should be more affordable housing because primarily the housing here is a little higher than the other cities around.” Dominic Cabacungan, Mountain View

“I do think Mountain View could use some more affordable housing. I know there are a lot of young people in Mountain View and a lot of people looking for a place to live. It would make the downtown scene a little bit more active.”

BIKE STOLEN A BMX-style red bicycle was stolen from a garage in the 900 block of Trophy Drive sometime last week, police said. Though the theft was reported on Aug. 20, Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said the 13-year-old male victim and his family believe the bike was stolen on Aug. 14. That’s the day the family had a party and the garage was left open, Wylie said. It is likely that if the bike was stolen then, the theft occurred sometime between 4:30 and 6 p.m. The bike is worth approximately $150, Wylie said.

ATTEMPTED BURGLARY THWARTED Two men, apparently working together, attempted to break into a house in the 800 block of Sierra Vista Avenue on Aug. 22, but were chased off by a resident who was home at the time, police said. The 24-year-old Mountain View man living in the house was in the shower at about 11:35 a.m. when he heard someone

ring the doorbell several times, according to police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. When he got out of the shower, he went to the door to see if the person was still there. Seeing no one at the door, the man returned to his room and saw a man standing directly outside his window, Wylie said. The man standing outside fled, and the 24-year-old called the police. A neighbor saw two men coming out of the backyard and also called the police. They were last seen heading west on Colony Street, Wylie said. When police arrived they found that someone had removed the screen to the bedroom window and the window was ajar, Wylie said. The window had been closed. Wylie said sometimes people pretend they aren’t home when they believe a salesperson is at the door. “Do not ever pretend that you’re not home,” Wylie said. It is common for burglars to knock first to find out if houses or apartments are unoccupied.

For some, a 1965 fire still burns MOST WHO FOUGHT INFAMOUS JASCO FIRE HAVE DEVELOPED CANCER By Daniel DeBolt

R

etired Mountain View firefighters and their families are still feeling the effects of the massive blaze at the Jasco chemical plant in 1965. Mountain View firefighters to this day look back on the fire as a major lesson for the department. “Almost everybody that was at the fire has had cancer or passed away from cancer,” said firefighter Damon Norvelle, referring to retired Mountain View firefighters. At least seven Mountain View firefighters who fought the Jasco chemical fire have died from cancer, including two within the last ten years, Richard Roche and former fire chief John Walsh. “Over a span of 20 to 25 years it caught up to most of them,” said fire department spokesperson Lynn Brown. Another retired Mountain View firefighter who was there is battling both prostate and stomach cancer. He has to take chemotherapy pills every day — at a cost of $4,000 a month — to keep his stomach cancer from spreading. He said his doctors tell him “You’ll be fine as long you take it for the rest of your life.” He said he felt fortunate that he experiences almost no side effects from the pills and his retirement health benefit from the city covers all but $15 of their cost. He did not want his name used in this story because of concerns about how news of his health would impact a business he runs.

altzing elephants, kissing tigers and flaming men blasting from a human crossbow electrified the arena floor with excitement. But to one mother in the crowd, the highlight of the show was the young man who burst into See BIG TOP, page 10

Because case law has made it nearly impossible to link cancer clusters to work environments, firefighters have had a hard time getting what many feel should be fair compensation for what they were exposed to on the job. The firefighter who wished to remain unnamed, a 29-year veteran of the department, has received $18,000 from the city in a settlement. “At least they recognized it,” he said. Shortly after 1987, the city saw a spike in cancer rates among those who battled Mountain View fires in the past. It was especially prevalent among those firefighters who were told to rely on their “leather lungs” instead of heavy and archaic breathing apparatuses. At the time, little was known about the increasingly prevalent toxics in building materials and manufacturing plants. “When the captain says, ‘Get your ass in there kid, don’t put a mask on, go do it’ — that’s what you’re going to do,” said the firefighter battling cancer. Firefighters would come out of a fire “choking and spitting and coughing” and the captain would say, “That’s how you do it, kid.” It wasn’t until the Jasco fire that Mountain View firefighters began using their breathing apparatuses in every fire. Before he passed away, former chief Walsh told a reporter that he remembered his chief’s assistant saying “From now on I don’t want anybody See JASCO FIRE, page 8

Local schools top last year’s test scores By Nick Veronin

M

ountain View schools scored better than the rest of the state on the California Standards Test, officials from both local districts reported. The Mountain View Whisman and Mountain View-Los Altos school districts also beat their own scores from previous years on the CST. Statewide, about 50 percent of students who took the California Standards Test were proficient or more than proficient in math; 54

percent were proficient or more than proficient in English and language arts. At the local high school district, Mountain View-Los Altos, 74 percent of students were deemed proficient or above in math, and 76 percent of students were proficient or above in English and language arts, according to Superintendent Barry Groves.

ABBY G. MULLEN Abby G. Mullen, a Mountain View resident, died Aug. 12 following a brief illness. She was 88. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, she had been a Bay Area resident since her family came to Menlo Park in 1931. She led a long and active life, her family said. Mullen was preceded in death by her husband Thomas Mullen; her brothers Walter Ross and

(working) without breathing apparatus.” “A grim battle with flaming death” When recalling the Jasco fire, firefighters always mention the woman who stood with onlookers across the street — her nylons melted off her legs. Vats and drums holding chemicals used to make paint remover exploded in what would now be seen as a horrific fireworks show, but that did not stop firefighters from fighting the blaze. Former firefighter John Espinoza said the chemical fumes dulled the paint on a new fire engine parked in front of the building. A local newspaper called it “a grim battle with flaming death.” At one point a mushroom cloud was sent hundreds of feet into the air when a large vat of acid blew up, something seen and heard from miles around. According to news reports at the time, firefighters being treated in the hospital after the fire compared it to a battleground, adding that it left them “shell-shocked.” Firefighter John Reid told a reporter that he and Capt. Ron Mumbower were nearly caught in the large explosion while trying to fight the fire inside the building: “All I remember is a sheet of flame coming over us!”

Harold “Smokey” Stewart; and her sister Rose Rick. She is survived by her children, Kathryn Russell, Walter “Bud” Mullen, and Edward Mullen; her grandchildren, Thomas Dunlap Jr., Donna King, and Karen Conner; 11 great-grandchildren and 17 great-great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27, at 1 p.m. at the Cusimano Family Colonial Mortuary, 96 W. El Camino Real, Mountain View. “We were only about 30-50 feet away” from the explosion, Mumbower said. “We could see the debris coming down. The blast blew it up and over us. We ran to get ahead of it — we made it.” Firefighters said they were exposed to hydrochloric acid gas and phosphine gas — a “severe respiratory irritant” used against soldiers in World War I and was later outlawed by the Geneva Convention. But it is still unknown exactly what other chemicals the firefighters were exposed to. “It wasn’t normal smoke,” said Mumbower at the time. “We were being gagged and some of us threw up.” The fire occurred at Jasco’s manufacturing plant at 898 Terra Bella Ave., an area which was then the city’s industrial district near Highway 101. Somehow, the brick building still stands today. Jasco still manufactures several highly toxic chemical products, including paint remover, but the company left Mountain View in the 1980s. Without the efforts of the firefighters, the fire could have been much worse — volatile fluids in four huge underground tanks did not explode. It is likely that it wasn’t just Mountain View firefighters who suffered from the fire. Firemen there included those who came from Los Altos, Sunnyvale and Moffett Field. “I wouldn’t doubt that civilians suffered as well,” Brown said.

With the extra space, Hof plans to grow the school from its current size of about 96 students to around 192. The new campus also has air conditioning — a feature lacking at the old campus, Hof said. On top of that, the school will no longer have to share its space with a church educational group, which used the Rengstorff Avenue building at night

for its classes. Teachers always had to put everything they didn’t want touched away before the church began its classes at night. Hof said that the move, just like any move, has been ‘bittersweet’ for many. So to make the best of it, students and faculty took a bunch of pictures of the paintings on the walls of the old campus and made a collage to be hung in the new campus. “Everybody is happy with the move,� Hof said. “But when you leave a place where you started you always leave a few memories behind.� The picture collage, she said, is meant to keep people from missing the old campus too much.

melody while guiding the audience on a riveting journey through each incredible act. After the festivities of opening night, Heidi Scott, a Mountain View software engineer, joined her family as well as animal trainer Tabayara Maluenda, the Brothers of Brawn, the members of Clown Alley and the rest of the circus stars for a congratulatory feast. She says she would never have imagined celebrating her son’s 25th birthday in this way, let alone having him return home as the man in charge of the “Greatest Show on Earth”. An unexpected future Brian Crawford Scott is the 36th ringmaster in the 141-year history of Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus, and to Heidi, it is all very surreal. No one had expected her son

to join the circus after graduating from college with a degree in theater. “It was definitely a surprise because when we all thought of musical theater, the circus didn’t enter any of our minds,” Heidi says. “But the more I thought about it, the more I thought it was perfect for his personality.” As a child, Brian says he never dreamed of joining the circus nor did he desire to pursue theater. “When I was little, I wanted to be an astronaut and archaeologist, and when I was in high school, I wanted to be a writer,” Brian says. “Theater wasn’t really on my list of things to do.” High school drama So how did a boy who never aspired to be an entertainer, had never even attended a circus as a child, grow up to be a ringmaster? Brian remembered his mother taking him and his brother to a performing arts camp in the Bay

Area when he was only 10. But it wasn’t until his junior year in high school that Brian joined his school’s theater program. After joining, Brian attended an annual thespian conference in Los Angeles and met the director of the musical theater program at the University of Northern Colorado. Impressed by Brian’s talent, the director offered him a spot in the program at the university. Brian decided to seize the opportunity and pursue a degree in theater. Little did he know that his training in performing arts was building the skills that he would later need to capture and the demanding role of a ringmaster. “Having studied musical performance in college really prepared me a lot,” Brian says. “Aside from the singing and performing aspect, there’s a lot of level of professionalism.

dents it had at the end of last year and was running just about even with last year. Mountain View Whisman, on the other hand, has already seen an increase of roughly 150 students, district-wide. “It was an expected increase,� Goldman said. “We were prepared.� Teachers have been hired and classes have been added in both districts. In Goldman’s district, about 30 new teachers have been hired to address the increase — the bulk of which has come in the form of what Goldman described as a “bubble� of middle school students. Some of the teachers have been assigned to Mountain View Whisman’s elementary schools, Goldman said, but more have gone to the middle schools — and not only to

core classes like math and English. Goldman said that this year there was a better student-to-teacher ratio in his district’s performing arts classes as more sections drama and music classes have been added. Groves called this year’s first week of school at Mountain ViewLos Altos, “one of the very smoothest openings we’ve had for our school district,� an assertion backed by Brigitte Sarraf, the district’s associate superintendent who has been with MVLA for 40 years. The smooth opening was due to a variety of factors, Groves said, including a new online registration system and a lot of hard work that was done in advance of the first day by teachers and the student government. New classes being offered at either Mountain View or Los Altos include Mandarin and a computer programming course. Groves said the district is expanding its masonry class. Students taking the construction class will now have

the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to be a plumber, electrician and carpenter. There are also two new advance placement physics offerings this year, including a class on mechanics, electricity and magnetism. Currently, 3,361 teens have enrolled in Mountain View-Los Altos — two fewer than the number of students enrolled at the end of last school year — but that number is expected to grow as more students trickle in. The district anticipates a 20-25 percent growth in its student body over the next decade. However, Sarraf and Groves said that there has been a lower attrition rate this year than in recent years. Sarraf speculated that lethargic housing and jobs markets might be causing people to stay put who would otherwise be looking to move on to a new job or a bigger house in a better fiscal climate. “The truth is, we really don’t know,� she said.

-PDBM/FXT COLD CASE

Continued from page 3

city-owned vehicle while on the job Friday. He was hired in 2006, and the city “at that time did not do criminal history checks,” on prospective employees, Wylie said. “We do now.” City management is “reviewing his original application for inaccuracy and in the future will make a determination if discipline up to termination is appropriate.” Police are still seeking the arrest of three others who were riding in the car at the time of the shooting. Grand jury a ‘valuable tool’ The 2004 murder of Fernandez rocked the city and was the only gang-related murder for years. Wylie said police had a bookshelf full of files with leads, witness interviews and suspect profiles but the case “essentially stalled.” After re-interviewing every witness, investigators “started to get new witnesses — people with new information,” Wylie said. “They did a ton of surveillance. Ultimately they were able to identify Giovanni as the likely shooter and Figueroa as the driver of the car that day.” Police say they also had the advantage of the suspects being less cautious than they were right after the murder took place, but a big factor was the power of the grand jury to get witnesses talking. “People who are unwilling to speak to police have a right to turn around and walk out the door,” Carruba said. “But with a grand jury investigation, witnesses can be made to show up through subpoena and the presiding judge can compel them to answer questions.” Witnesses can also claim their Fifth

Amendment right to not answer questions, but only against the possibility of incriminating themselves, Carruba said. The arrests should send a clear message to the two gangs involved that they “can’t get away with murder,” Wylie said. “We’re not just going to let it go away,” Carruba added. “These cases are going to be prosecuted.” Longtime rivalry The two gangs allegedly involved in the murder each have over 100 members in Mountain View, Wylie said. Sureños have operated in the city about 20 years, identifying themselves with the color blue and the Roman numeral for 13: “XIII.” The VMV members use the color red and the Roman numerals for 14: “XIV.” VMV is believed to have existed in the city for at least 35 years, Wylie said. Wylie said the case was the focus of a local gang task force formed in 2010 by the FBI under the Safe Streets Act that is now housed in the Mountain View police building. The team included a pair of Mountain View officers, Sgt. Dan Vicencio and Det. Saul Jaeger, a Sunnyvale police officer and two FBI agents. “This case has been their focus from the get-go,” Wylie said. Police Chief Scott Vermeer said the arrests were “a success story” for the task force, a form of collaboration that he said was the future of law enforcement. “It was very frustrating for a number of years that we could not solve this case,” Vermeer said. “There is a lot of satisfaction and a lot of pride for all the people involved after so much time and so much work.” V

Uniform Complaint Procedure Title IX Violations, Discrimination and Harassment. District programs and activities are free from discrimination and harassment, with respect to ethnicity, religion, gender, age, color, race, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, marital or parental status and physical or mental disability. The board desires to maintain an environment in which all students and adults are treated with dignity and respect. No student shall be subjected to sexual overtures or conduct either verbal, visual, or physical, which are intimidating, hostile, offensive, or unwelcome. Such conduct by adults or students is deemed unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the school district. (EC 48980) The board prohibits intimidation or harassment of any student by any employee, student or other person in the district. Students who harass other students shall be subject to appropriate counseling and discipline, up to and including expulsion. (BP 5145.3) The Board ensures equal opportunities for all students in admission and access to the educational program, guidance and counseling programs, athletic programs, testing procedures, and other activities. Eligibility for choral and cheerleading groups is determined solely on the basis of objective competencies. School staff and volunteers carefully guard against segregation, bias and stereotyping in instruction, guidance and supervision. However, separate provisions may be made for students according to sex with respect to such matters as protection of modesty, family life and sex education, grading standards in physical education, and choral groups. The district follows uniform complaint procedures when addressing complaints alleging unlawful discrimination based on ethnic group identification, religion, age, gender, color, or physical or mental disability. All complaints will be handled in a professional manner, and complainants are assured of non-retaliation and not-retribution. Any person who wishes to discuss or file a complaint based on discrimination or harassment should first seek remedy through the office of the school’s principal. Depending on the nature of the complaint and/or if the complainant feels that the issue has not been satisfactorily resolved, a written statement may be filed with the principal and a copy sent to the Associate Superintendent for Educational Services. If the issue cannot be resolved at the level of the principal, a formal complaint should be filed with the District’s Title IX compliance officer, the Associate Superintendent for Educational Services, Brigitte Sarraf. After a complaint has been duly investigated and if the complainant is dissatisfied with the District’s decision, the complainant may file a written appeal with the Board of Trustees or the California Department of Education within 15 days of receiving the District’s decision. If the complainant is unable to put a complaint in writing due to conditions such as illiteracy, language barriers, or other handicap, district staff shall help him/her to file the complaint. Complainants may pursue other remedies, including actions before civil courts or other public agencies. Complainants may seek assistance from agencies such as legal assistance, local mediation centers or from private attorneys. Any individual, public agency of organization may file a written complaint of alleged noncompliance with state and federal law. The complaint must be initiated no later than six months from the date when the discrimination is alleged to have occurred or when the complainant first obtained knowledge of the facts of the alleged discrimination. Complaints regarding school procedures, practices and personnel. Complainants are encouraged to resolve complaints against school personnel through informal means by talking directly with the school person involved. If this is not successful, a written complaint may be directed to the employee’s administrative supervisor or principal. Appeals from administrative determinations or decisions may be taken up with the Associate Superintendent of Personnel, who will make decisions on these matters. After consultation with the superintendent, any patron may address the Board of Trustees at a regular meeting.

Best Of 2011 FINE DINING

RESTAURANTS Breakfast Perhaps a treasured item on Hobee’s menu says it all: the Best Darn Breakfast In Town. At all three Hobee’s locations, the BDBIT comes with two eggs, served your way; “Country Style” hashbrowns; and toast or the blueberry coffeecake that has fans willing to wait in line. 2312 Central Expressway, Mountain View 650-968-6050. #67 Town & Country Village, Palo Alto 650-327-4111. 4224 El Camino Real, Palo Alto 650-856-6124.

Chinese Restaurant Chef Chu’s is a longtime local favorite, serving quality Chinese food at prices that won’t break the bank. Meat and seafood lovers will rejoice in the selection of specialty dishes, such as Peking duck, rack of lamb and clam soup, but vegetarians will find a festival of dishes to enjoy, including tofu and noodle dishes, and even “vegetarian goose.”

Oye como va — Cascal is clearly one of Mountain View’s favorite restaurants, winning in four categories this year: readers ranked it as the best for fine dining, the best patio, the best place to have a business lunch and the best happy hour in town. With Spanish hospitality and Latin flavor, Cascal caters to most dining desires. A wide variety of tapas is paired with an extensive wine list and “sexy” cocktails in a vibrant setting, with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. 400 Castro St., Mountain View 940-9500

FUSION Bright neon signs, cutting-edge design, and new spins on classic Vietnamese recipes, Xahn is too hip to be square. Thanks to Chef Thuy Pham’s direction, Xahn caters

or Palo Altan Lisa Herndon, lacto-fermentation is a way of life. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying to yourself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;lacto-what-now?â&#x20AC;? no worries, Herndon is here to help. Lacto-, or lactic-acid fermentation, is a simple anaerobic reaction and a traditional method of preparing and preserving foods (think sauerkraut, pickles and kefir). Herndon offers workshops on lacto-fermentation, along with other cooking and food-preparation skills, from her home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lacto-fermented foods are whole, nourishing, full of vita-

mins, minerals, enzymes and beneficial bacteria necessary to maintain a healthy gut, immunesystem support and optimal nutrition. They increase the efficiency of digestion by providing enzymes that help do the work for you,â&#x20AC;? Herndon said. Common conditions including asthma and irritable-bowel syndrome have been linked to a lack of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, she said. Fermented foods also aid in nutrient absorption, are cheap to create and keep for months. Plus, she added, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re zesty and rich in flavor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are deeply rooted in our food traditions and I believe it is

Melt butter in a large skillet, and when it begins to bubble. Fry the cutlets until golden, turning them once. Transfer them to a buttered baking dish, lay a slice of prosciutto and one of cheese slices on each piece, and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts. Spoon a warm tomato sauce over each and serve with crusty bread.


8FFLFOE time to make them mainstream again,” she said. Herndon’s been into healthy eating for about a decade, since she was pregnant with her first child and found herself suffering from gestational diabetes. She began researching and practicing a more traditional diet (including plenty of fresh, local ingredients and food blooming with live, active cultures) and found that her health vastly improved. Doing her own lacto-fermentation was a natural next step. She first learned to make sauerkraut and found that common condiments such as ketchup, mustard and pickles were traditionally made with lacto-fermentation. Mayonnaise made with fresh egg yolks and olive oil, she said, is divine. “Then,” she said, laughing, “I got obsessive.” From sauerkraut and pickles she moved on to kimchi (Korean fermented veggies), kefir (a fermented drink that is often dairy-based), beet kvass (a digestive tonic), kombucha (a “tea” made from a yeast culture), salad dressings, dips and other items, all of which are the subjects of workshops she’s taught. “I haven’t yet tried miso, or sourdough,” she said, adding that she tries to steer clear of gluten

and grain-based foods. Her personal favorites include the naturally carbonated fizz of kombucha tea, which can be flavored with fruits or herbs and offers a tangy, natural alternative to soda — a particular past weakness, she said. “It was really hard to quit Fresca.” Now, she said, “I rarely get sick and my kids are way healthier than the other kids.” Herndon’s two children, both in elementary school, have grown up eating a locally sourced diet, mostly free from processed foods. “They think ‘regular’ food tastes like junk,” she said. The family raises chickens for eggs, grows vegetables, keeps honeybees and gets raw milk from a goat they board in San Jose. She’s been teaching workshops since last summer under the name Lisa’s Counter Culture, at the urging of friends. “I was doing it for free but people kept asking,” she said, and through word of mouth, demand for her workshops grew. She usually teaches classes of six to eight students in her kitchen but has recently expanded to workshops at local Whole Foods markets. “My main job is being a mom but now that my kids are older I’m hoping to do more work-

shops,” she said. Her introductory workshop covers what lacto-fermentation is, different methods such as closed versus open-air systems, using pickling jars, temperature requirements, and how to make

brine. It also includes samples. After taking one of her classes, “usually people come to more,” she said. Recently, Herndon taught a $75 workshop on dosas (traditionally fermented Indian crepes) and

chutneys (fruit-based condiments common in Indian cuisine). Her dosa batter was made from lacto-fermented lentils, long-grain rice and salt, plus See FERMENTATION, page 34

CONAN THE BARBARIAN (Century 16, Century 20) As narrator Morgan Freeman informs us, Conan is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a child born of battleâ&#x20AC;? into â&#x20AC;&#x153;a time both bleak and brutal.â&#x20AC;? In the absurd opening movement, Cimmerian boy Conan proves his mettle to his father (Ron Perlman) by taking on several adult enemy natives. Conan begins to learn the ways of the warrior and attempts to become worthy of the sword, but dad gets himself slain by magic-power-hungry warlord Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang) and his sorceress daughter (Rose McGowan), triggering a revengedriven plot once Conan grows up to have pecs. Rated R for strong bloody violence, some sexuality and nudity. One hour, 53 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

THE HELP -(Century 16, Century 20) Despite being a privileged white girl obliged to play nice with the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nasty cliques of racists, Skeeter (Emma Stone) has the soul of a rebel. She decides to help the help â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is, work against the mistreatment of local black maids by getting them to tell her their stories, which Skeeter will fashion into a book sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing on spec for a Harper & Row editor (Mary Steenburgen). Rated PG-13 for thematic material. Two hours, 27 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

ONE DAY -1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) The one day in question is St. Swithinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, July 15. On July 15, 1988, sensible working-class girl Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and obnoxious, well-off Dexter Mayhew (the overestimated Jim Sturgess) graduate from the University of Edinburgh and, finding themselves otherwise alone, wind up making a dash for the bedroom despite being considerably less cozy than two peas in a

pod. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Dayâ&#x20AC;? reunites us with Dex and Emma repeatedly on July 15s, between 1988 and 2006. Like so many pictures about love, â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Dayâ&#x20AC;? seems to take place in an unrecognizable alternate universe, albeit a boring and annoying one. Rated PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence and substance abuse. One hour, 48 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

THE WHISTLEBLOWER ---1/2 (Aquarius) A divorced mother of three, Kathryn Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is a Nebraska cop turned United Nations peacekeeper in turn-of-the-millennium Sarajevo, where she encounters the kidnapping, sexual and emotional abuse, and forced prostitution of young Bosnian women. Bolkovac discovers that her employer (a contracted international peacekeeping taskforce here called Democra Security)

Every dance starts with a first step. is well aware of the abuses, and that her colleagues patronize the abusers. With the moral support of Madeleine Rees (Vanessa Redgrave) of the U.N.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gender Affairs office, Bolkovac investigates the abuses and attempts to organize raids that do more than ineffectually go through the motions. Rated R for disturbing violent content including a brutal sexual assault, graphic nudity and language. One hour, 48 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.
