City will remember 9/11 attacks at ceremony PROCESSIONS TO CONVERGE ON CIVIC CENTER DURING ART AND WINE FESTIVAL By Daniel DeBolt
n a ceremony set for Sunday morning during the Art and Wine festival, the city is set to acknowledge the 10th anniversary of the thousands of deaths that resulted from the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
At 11 a.m. Sunday, two processions will converge on the Civic Center plaza on Castro Street, where city officials, police, firefighters and local service clubs will honor the 3,000 people who died the day the twin towers fell, and the 343 firefighters and 60 police officers who responded to the disaster and lost their
lives. It was the largest single loss of firefighters in United States history. At 10 a.m. police will observe a national moment of silence on their radios, following a Congressional resolution that “calls upon all of the people and See 9/11, page 15
Caltrain switches to new rail operator Over the next five months, Caltrain operations will transition from Amtrak to TransitAmerica Services Inc., following the unanimous approval Thursday, Sept. 1, by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board to contract with the St. Joseph,

was scored in three major areas of criteria: the management, operations and maintenance plan; the cost proposal; and the qualifications and experience of the firm and key personnel proposed by the firm as the management team for the Caltrain service.

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Janelle Eastman
How did 9/11 impact your outlook on life? “My thoughts on Sept. 11th are that it’s not the event itself that changed us, it was the response, the security apparatus that rose up, and the wars,” Shane Beasley, Mountain View
“9/11 definitely had its impact, I think, in realizing that America was a lot less protected than it thought it was and the importance of a strong defense that was obvious. Personally, I think people realized that it made life a little more precious in a lot of ways.”

ARREST IN U-HAUL FIRES Police have arrested a Palo Alto man they believe is responsible for setting fire to a number of rental trucks in a local U-Haul lot in July, said a spokeswoman with the Mountain View Police Department. The man, 48-year-old Jesse Jakubik, was seen shortly after midnight on Sept.1 sneaking through a hole in the fence out of the U-Haul lot, located at 62 W. El Camino Real, said Liz Wylie, public information officer for Mountain View police. Sgt. Tony Vieyra spotted Jakubik leaving the U-Haul property, followed him and arrested him near his truck, which was parked on Highway 237. Officers discovered four fivegallon containers filled with gasoline and 13 empty five-gallon containers in the bed of Jakubikâ€™s truck, Wylie said. A siphon was found still inserted in one of the rental trucks parked on the U-Haul lot. Jakubik was arrested for prowling on private property, possession of stolen property and violating his probation, Wylie said. Jakubik had been recently
convicted of drug-related charges, she said. Just before midnight on July 20, a fire burned eight trucks on the same U-Haul lot, Wylie said. Prior to the fire, the owners of the Mountain View U-Haul told police that someone had been sneaking into the lot on a regular basis and siphoning gasoline out of their trucks. The blaze prompted the evacuation of several nearby residences, due to fireâ€™s proximity to a large propane tank on the lot. After reviewing security footage from the U-Haul lot, investigators said that Jakubik resembled a man captured by cameras on the night of the fire, Wylie said, and his jacket resembled that of the man seen in that security footage. He was charged with burglary and unlawfully starting the fire, a charge that differs from arson. In order to be considered arson, it must be proven that the guilty party set the fire intentionally and with malicious intent. Unlawfully starting a fire means that the fire was started due to recklessness. Jakubik was booked into county jail, Wylie said.

New Mayor’s Award may be here to stay By Daniel DeBolt

Efforts to save the historic building will be discussed at the Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8, at the Senior Center, 266 Escuela Ave.
Advocate for senior citizens dies at 108 By Andrea Gemmet
ouise Miner, an 80-year Mountain View resident who helped launch many of the city’s senior programs, died Aug. 30, one month after celebrating her 108th birthday. A memorial service for Miner is set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the First Presbyterian Church, 1667 Miramonte
Ave., Mountain View. Miner was actively involved at First Presbyterian, and her creation of the church’s Fifty/Fifty Club for seniors in 1957 was a springboard for the city’s senior programs, said her son, John Miner. She was a member and director of the volunteer-led Mountain View Senior Citizens Club that organized trips and events to complement the city’s senior programming, said the city’s recre-
ation supervisor. Born in 1903, she met her future husband, Nagel Miner, in 1921 during their senior year at Santa Cruz High School. The couple married in 1926. Miner worked as Louise Miner a teacher at Highway Elementary School and the Dana Street School in Mountain View through the years of the Great Depression
Quiet renaissance in OMV HOME TOUR OFFERS PEEK AT RECENT REMODELS AND LANDSCAPES By Carol Blitzer
ld Mountain View has been undergoing a quiet, subtle evolution since many of the homes were built in the late 1940s. Slowly the little bungalows in the heart of town are becoming modernized and updated. Five homes that were recently remodeled will be on tour during the first Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF) home
tour on Sept. 17, a fundraiser that funnels money into K-8 programs in art, music, science and afterschool sports in the Mountain View Whisman School District. Included on the tour is the home of Lisa Parramore and her husband Svein Olslund, who bought their Old Mountain View bungalow in 2000. In two stages, in 2003 and 2009, they’ve expanded their 1,200-square-foot home to about 2,300 square feet, maximizing their use of space on
a 5,500-square-foot lot. First they added a master suite, with a deep Japanese soaking tub, with slate surround and flooring and shoji screen doors. Parramore, a landscape designer and co-author of “Living With Japanese Gardens,” lived in Japan 20 years ago, just after college. Originally from North Carolina, she was excited by Japan’s architecture — and ultimately incorporated many Japanese details while updating
fter two years of not having a mayor’s award, Mayor Jac Siegel has resurrected it and is seeking nominations for outstanding people, groups and businesses in the city that deserve recognition. In order to make it more practical, Siegel said he spent considerable time figuring out how to cut the time and expense of conducting the event, which the previous two mayors passed on during the recession. “I went through with help of staff (and) streamlined the heck out of it,” Siegel said. Sigel said that what used to cost $5,000 to $6,000 and require several meetings will now cost only $1,000 and one meeting. “We are down to one meeting now with five people on a committee,” Siegel said. “In two or three hours we’re going to decide right there.” The award categories are not set in stone, and the committee may create categories as needed in order to recognize five to 10 award winners. Potential categories include “Leadership, Volunteerism, Community Involvement, and Commitment to the betterment of Mountain View.” Mountain View employees are not eligible for awards unless they are residents as well, but they may make nominations. A nomination form with instructions is available on the city website at mountainview.gov under announcements or at the library, City Hall, Community Center, Chamber of Commerce and the Senior Center. The deadline for submissions to the city manager’s office is Sept. 26 at 5 p.m. Email Daniel DeBolt at firstname.lastname@example.org

her California home. In the new great room — created by removing most of a wall between the kitchen and living room — the furniture is positioned to face outdoors. Shoji screens cover NanaWall accordion doors leading to the garden. “Having a garden viewable from inside is a very Japanese approach to residential design,” she said, adding “I think it makes the most of a small lot.” Out the door one steps onto an engawa, a narrow wooden walkway that connects the indoors and outdoors, ParSee HOUSE TOUR, page 8 SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 ■ MOUNTAIN VIEW VOICE ■

ramore explained. Asian garden features include bamboo fencing, a metal rain chain (made of bells) instead of a downspout, a stone fountain with a bamboo spout and Japanese roof tiles used for edging. The plantings are a mixture of Japanese-inspired and native Californians, with a prominently placed, aesthetically pruned Japanese black pine. A table and chairs sits in front of the
outdoor fireplace, encouraging dining al fresco. Stepping stones lead one down the side to the vegetable garden, compost bin and rain-barrel collector.

Parramore said. Another common Japanese concept is to stagger elements, whether they are shelves in the kitchen, windows in the living room or stepping stones outside. Even the Douglas fir trusses in the vaulted great-room ceiling are slightly asymmetrical. The faceted glass in the front door mimics a Japanese split curtain. A split curtain replaces a storage-cabinet door in a hallway. Up the stairway, one can see a dramatic Japanese wedding kimono hanging on the wall, just above a window that lets light flow through to the hallway beyond. The four other recently remodeled homes on the tour include: â– a bungalow adapted for indoor/outdoor modern living, with a NanaWall accordion door leading to the deck, corner picture windows and a European-style eco-friendly kitchen system; â– a cottage with an angled entry, with a big family kitchen, master-bedroom suite and wheelchair access via an attractive ramp; â– a ranch-style house with modern touches, including a Japanese soaking tub, NanaWall

Romero was arrested later in Mountain View. Authorities would not name the suspected killer. Mendoza said he could have tried to prosecute Talarico, but decided to hold off in hopes of building a better case. Exactly why Johnson was shot remains a mystery. Mendoza said heâ€™s waiting for someone to â€œtell us exactly what happened and why.â€? â€œIn a case like this I would love to give closure to the family and hold who did this responsible,â€? Mendoza said. â€œJeffrey was a
young man, he didnâ€™t deserve to die. Iâ€™m sure the family thinks about it all the time. Jeffrey is not forgotten.â€? Mendoza says he will never forget the case. â€œThis is the only homicide Iâ€™ve had that I havenâ€™t been able to close out and Iâ€™ve been at my job 26 years.â€? â€œI think we have some evidence that we can corroborate if someone comes forward,â€? Mendoza said. â€œIâ€™m hopeful it will happen.â€? Anyone with information about the case can reach Mountain View police at (650) 903-6344. Email Daniel DeBolt at email@example.com
