Council happy with no-bid trash contract By Daniel DeBolt


eaders of Recology could breathe a sigh of relief Tuesday when the City Council supported the garbage contractor’s proposals for a new contract instead of going to bid for the first time in over 80 years. “You look like you are walking on air,” it was said of a Recology official’s expression at the end of Tuesday’s study session. Council member Ronit Bryant said she remained “uncomfortable” about not putting the contract out to bid, but she and other previously hesitant members did not object when asked if they supported continued negotiations with Recology for a contract that must begin in April 2013. Residential rates could go up by 1 to 3 percent, while commercial rates could increase over 20 percent for new recycling and food waste collection services. With a vote on a final contact expected in September, City Council members are


set to weigh the cost benefits of various proposals to up the city’s recycling rate. Recology promised a bill over two years that would reflect a two-year freeze on employee wages, while proposing increased recycling services at a cost comparable to other cities, said Lori Topley, Mountain View’s solid waste program manager in a report. Two potential bidders on the city’s garbage contract spoke, including Michael Gross of Green Waste Recovery, which promises use of the country’s first dry anaerobic digester. It composts organic waste and uses the gas produced to make electricity. “These are not little fantasies, this is happening in San Jose right now,” said Gross, who promised meeting the city’s waste diversion goal “from day one.” “My grandfather had the contract in Mountain View back in 1939,” said Louie Pelligrini, president of Mission

hysicist William Shockley may have introduced silicon to the valley, but efforts to save his former lab building in Mountain View have been stifled by Shockley’s controversial views on race and intelligence. Developer Merlone Geier is offering to buy Shockley’s former lab building at 391 San Antonio Road — currently housing the International Halal Market — to expand a major redevelopment next door. The owner’s unwillingness to sell seems to be all that stands in the way of scraping a site acknowledged as the birthplace of Silicon Valley. Proposals made by former employees of Shockley to preserve the cinderblock building as a silicon museum or designate it a city or state historic landmark were passed up by officials in the 1980s and 1990s. Jacques Beaudouin, a Mountain View resident who once worked for Shockley at

CONVENIENCE STORE HOLD-UP More than $400 was stolen from the register of an East El Camino Real convenience store when the clerk was robbed at gunpoint on the night of June 13, police said. The clerk, a 35-year-old man, told police he handed over the money after a man entered the his store — the Stop 2 Save, located at 805 E. El Camino Real — at about 10:05 p.m. and pointed a silver handgun at him, according to Liz Wylie, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department. The robber fled on foot down Dale Avenue toward Continental Circle, Wylie said. With the aid of a police dog, officers attempted to track the thief; the dog followed his scent to the sound wall of Highway 85 on

the west side of The Americana Apartments — a large complex near the convenience store. Wylie said the culprit was described as a black man, of “medium height and build, wearing a black jacket or hooded sweatshirt and dark or black pants and shoes.” Because his face was covered it was not clear how old the man was, she said.

El Camino pay-cap initiative to go to voters By Nick Veronin

Council delays flood basin vote By Daniel DeBolt


aking the advice of City Attorney Jannie Quinn, the City Council delayed a vote on the Cuesta Annex flood basin that was set for Tuesday. Quinn recommended that the council wait for the completion of the project’s environmental impact report over the summer. “The City Council shouldn’t really be approving the project until the environmental review is completed,” Quinn said in a last-minute announcement at the

June 19 meeting. The City Council has been asked to approve plans for a Cuesta Annex flood basin that’s half the size of the one originally proposed. The Santa Clara Valley Water District is proposing a basin in the open lot next to Cuesta Park known as the Cuesta Annex to capture 30 to 35 acre-feet of flood waters from nearby Permanente Creek, while 65-acre feet was originally proposed. The basin takes up 4.5 acres at the front of the 12.5-acre Annex and is 8 to 12 feet

feet deep, according to proposed plans released June 14. Previously the Water District had proposed a 20- to 25-foot deep basin. The basin is part of a project sufficient to capture flood waters in the event of a 100-year flood, which has a one percent chance of happening every year. According to the plans, the sides of the basin would be sloped at a 14 degree angle, with stairs sand trails providing access. At least 30 new native trees would See FLOOD BASIN, page 14

xpressing great misgivings, officials with El Camino Hospital’s corporation and district boards approved resolutions June 19 that will put on the November ballot an initiative to cap executive pay at the health care organization. That initiative, backed by several local and national labor organizations, would greatly reduce the salaries of many of the hospital’s top administrators if it were to pass, limiting pay to no more than twice the salary of the governor of California. Gov. Jerry Brown currently makes $173,987 annually. Twice his salary, $347,974, is still less than half El Camino CEO Tomi Ryba’s proposed 2013 salary of $714,460. The hospital’s chief financial officer, Michael King, and its chief medical officer, Dr. Eric Pifer, also make more than twice the governor’s salary — $420,000 and $450,000 respectively. At the hospital district meeting, several board members said they recognized the legitimacy of the signatures gathered in support of the initiative. More than 16,000 individual names were tallied, according to officials with the South Bay Labor Council; the initiative needed only 9,100 to be placed on the ballot. Ironically, the hospital district board members, who also serve on the hospital corporation board, must give final approval to the initiative before it can be placed on the ballot.

Board member Dave Reeder expressed deep reservations about the impact the initiative would have on the hospital. “In order for us to perform we need good leadership,” he said. Putting this cap on executive pay would place the hospital within the 20th percentile when it comes to executive pay, he continued — making it difficult, if not impossible, to hire the best in the business. “Making $10, $15 or $20 million as a CEO is pretty outrageous,” Reeder said, noting that he felt that many executives throughout the country are overpaid. He just doesn’t think that is the case at El Camino. Kary Lynch, a psychiatric technician at the hospital, who also serves as a steward for El Camino’s worker’s union, noted that many of the hospital’s top officials are paid more in bonuses each year than plenty of hospital employees. According to an official hospital memorandum, King and Pifer were awarded $63,446 and $106,088 in “incentive payouts” in the 2011 fiscal year. That kind of pay, in Lynch’s view, is ridiculous, especially considering that these executives work for a district hospital that receives millions in taxpayer dollars each year. Hospital officials have been adamant that taxpayer dollars do not go to support the salaries of anyone in the organization. All tax dollars, according to hospital spokeswoman Chris Ernst, go to community benefit programs and capital improvement. V

Vargas doesn’t qualify for Obama’s deportation freeze By Daniel DeBolt


f he were just one year younger, Mountain View High School grad and immigration reform advocate Jose Antonio Vargas would have been relieved of deportation fears on Friday. President Barack Obama announced June 15 that he would spare 800,000 to 1.4 million unauthorized immigrants from deportation and allow them to

legally work in the U.S. Insisting it was not amnesty, he said his unilateral action would apply to those who were brought to U.S. before the age of 16. But to qualify, you must not be a felon, must be enrolled in school or have a high school diploma and be 29 or younger. Vargas is 30. Vargas reacted to the news by circulating a petition on change. org Friday thanking the president for the action and calling for

more reforms. “Starting today, DREAM-eligible youth will be able to officially come forward — no longer risking deportation — and apply to work, join the Army, or go to college,” Vargas wrote, referring to the Dream Act, a bill that would provide a path to legal residency. “They will be able to give back to the country they call home.” See DEPORTATION, page 13

Council OKs 134 new apartments By Daniel DeBolt


f the city’s park and housing fees are not too onerous, Prometheus Real Estate Group can move forward with building 134 new apartments to replace 50 units at an older complex it owns at 819 North Rengstorff. Council members voted unanimously to approve the project on Tuesday for the northeast corner of North Rengstorff Avenue and Central Expressway. The proposal saw no neighborhood opposition and unanimous support from the Environmental Planning Commission. Three-story apartment buildings would face the intersection, one of the busiest in the city, and increase the total size of the complex from 188 to 272 units. A new park, equal to the size of downtown’s Mercy Bush Park, would replace parking spaces on the site. Council members expressed no concern over the developer’s complaints about city fees, including a possible affordable housing fee charged on the


project before it is occupied, a fee that could be equal to 4.6 percent of the project’s value. The fees would provide funds for subsidized affordable housing elsewhere in Mountain View. “As developers I’m not aware of a time where we would be investing tens of millions of dollars into a property and not have clarity as to our financial obligations,” said Jon Moss of Prometheus Real Estate Group. “If you want certainty I guess you can give us some offers,” for including affordable housing in the project, said council member Jac Siegel. “It can be done quickly and Prometheus can have all the certainty they want,” said council member Ronit Bryant. Mayor Mike Kasperzak said the council is likely to pass a new policy soon that would allow a developer to build 10 percent of a rental project as affordable housing, instead of a more expensive fee equal to 4.6 percent of the project’s value. “It would likely need 13 units, but maybe we’re

comfortable with 10,” Kasperzak said. Council members also expressed concern about the placement of apartment stoops along Rengstorff Avenue, which isn’t uncommon on Rengstorff, Kasperzak said, although Siegel noted that the intersection was the second busiest in the city.

“Having units right on the streets does not make sense in this situation,” council member Laura Macias said. Macias decried the loss of 23 heritage trees from the property. Moss said that was significantly better than a previously approved proposal by Lyon Homes to build 206 three-bedroom townhomes

on the site, removing 91 heritage trees. Each lost heritage tree would be replaced with a new box tree. Bryant proposed the council consider a new policy that developers be told up front to design their projects around heritage See APARTMENTS, page 10




t’s the fifth anniversary of Google’s Street View, a virtual reality map interface, and the Computer History is commemorating the Mountain View-based tech company’s achievement with an exhibit. Opening this weekend, it chronicles the many innovations that led up to the introduction of the program, how the software works and where the technology is headed. The 1,000-square-foot exhibit is opening for an exclusive viewing for Google employees on Friday, June 22, and will be open to everyone starting Saturday, June 23. Street View, introduced to the public in 2007, allows users of Google’s popular maps service to get a 360-degree view of many roads all around the world. Many living in Moun-

tain View — and indeed, the world — have come to recognize Google’s specialized cars, outfitted with a large multilens, multi-directional camera, which takes pictures “every five feet or so,” according to Weber. After the photos are taken, they are stitched together by Google’s computers to create a seamless, almost-spherical view of the world from the ground. Addresses, road signs, homes, offices and trees can be seen. Iterations of Street View have existed for more than 100 years, according to Marc Weber, one of the museum’s curators. He described a scene shot from the front of a cable car in San Francisco shortly before the 1906 earthquake. Though nowhere near as complex as Street View, the clip takes viewers down a stretch of street, just as Google’s program can do. “As long as there’s been movie

oning administrator Peter Gilli recommends that City Council members vote against a four-story office project that would overshadow neighboring gourmet restaurant Chez TJ and require demolition of a historic home. “If it didn’t have a neighbor like Chez TJ this might be different,” Gilli said in a hearing on Wednesday, June 13. He gave Los Altos-based developer Roger Burnell some credit for architectural changes, but said “It is still a four-story wall next to Chez TJ.” Gilli also weighed Burnell’s proposed demolition of the vacant 1870s Pearson house on the site at 902 Villa Street at Bryant Street. A “significant effort” was made by Burnell to relocate the house onto private property or onto city land to be part of a history museum, but “it is still a historic building on our register,” Gilli said. “You shouldn’t assume that because the porch is falling apart that the historic building is as bad. The porch didn’t have same quality as the original construction.” Burnell gave a presentation about the project in which he explained that the 21,750square-foot building meets city guidelines for the site, even at 61 feet in height and set back only 5

A seat on the El Camino Hospital District Board will be up for grabs in the November election. Both seats vacated by Uwe Kladde — on the El Camino Hospital and El Camino Hospital District boards — will remain empty until November when voters will select a candidate to

add culture to the city, maintaining a high class restaurant does,” said Stephanie, a neighbor in the condos at 108 Bryant Street, referring to Chez TJ. “It would block out all of the light into our building. And having a garage as a first floor does not add anything to our street.” Gilli recommended that the project have an underground garage, which would also reduce the building to three stories. “I understand it’s extremely costly, but other sites are finding ways to do that,” Gilli said. He added that a recent parking study found the area to be lacking in parking more than other areas of downtown. That made it hard to justify fewer parking space than normally required on the site, even though the City Council had initially agreed to the exception, Gilli said. The building also lacks environmentally friendly features and would be rated LEED silver, the city’s minimum requirement for new office buildings, Gilli said. “Most projects that are coming through the process are LEED gold,” Gilli said. “I’d say this is doing the minimum in terms of sustainability.” The City Council will vote on the project and possibly approve a draft environmental impact report at its July 10 meeting.

fill the empty district board seat and subsequently the hospital board seat. Members of the district board have decided to leave the seat open until the fall, when Kladde’s term would have expired. As the hospital and district have done in the past, El Camino spokeswoman Chris Ernst said, whoever is elected to the district board will automatically take a seat on the hospital corporation board. Two more seats are up for election in the fall: those of Wesley Alles and board chair John Zoglin. Those interested in running for a seat on the board have about one month to file their declaration of candidacy forms with the Santa Clara County registrar of voters. The filing period runs from July 16 to Aug. 10. More information can be found online at the registrar’s website, Kladde first left his seat on the hospital corporation board in January before leaving his position on the district board in May. With each departure, the former board member said he wished to spend more time with his family. —Nick Veronin




ublic schools throughout California, shouldn’t be expecting a great year when it comes to federal and state funding, but local elementary and middle schools are prepared to absorb most, if not all, of the potential mid-year cutbacks, according to the head of the Mountain View Whisman School District. The budget, passed unanimously at the district’s June 7 board of trustees meeting, projects that the district will end the 2012-13 school year with about $1 million in unspent revenue — taking in more than $45 million, spending about $43.4 million and diverting the rest into rainy day reserves in anticipation of

possible mid-year cuts in state funding. With California lagging behind the already slow-going national recovery and a projected state budget deficit of $15.7 billion, Superintendent Craig Goldman isn’t optimistic that his district is going to get a great deal of help from Sacramento or Washington, D.C. during the coming school year. In fact, the district’s 2012-13 budget anticipates funding will remain at its current level only in the “best-case scenario,” Goldman said. That scenario rests upon the passage of Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax initiative, which will temporarily raise taxes on “high-income earners” if approved. Should the governor’s proposed tax initia-

tive fail, “trigger cuts” will go into effect in November, resulting in $5.5 billion in education spending reductions statewide and a $441 per student reduction throughout the Mountain View Whisman School District, Goldman said. It is unlikely that the district will have to make any cuts midyear, however, Goldman said, as the district’s financial officials have structured the budget so that $2.1 million in reserves is set aside to deal with the trigger cuts. “We’ve paid strong attention to our reserves,” Goldman said. “We’ve tried to strike a balance of being fiscally cautious, while maintaining effective programs.” While it is possible that cuts could be in store in the 2013-14

school year and beyond, Goldman said, “we’ve built the budget on the basis so that we do not have to cut current year.” The only way the district could be forced to make reductions this year is if the governor’s projections are off and midyear cuts are triggered that exceed the anticipated $441 per student. In addition to prudent financial planning, Goldman said that generous support from local organizations and the community was also an integral part of the district’s red ink-free budget. In particular, he gave credit to Google’s $1 million donation, El Camino Hospital’s grant that allows the district to keep three school nurses on staff and the money from the Shoreline special district for helping the dis-

trict forge its way through trying economic times. On top of that, the district generates a fair amount of revenue from properties it leases to Google, the German International School of Silicon Valley, the Primary Plus preschool and the YMCA, Goldman said. Goldman acknowledged that the district has made sacrifices recently, such as moving kindergarten-, first-, second- and third-grade classes from a ratio of 20 students per teacher up to 25 students, as well as asking teachers to pay a bigger share of their healthcare premiums. Overall, though, he said the district is in “relatively sound” financial condition. “When I started as CFO five years ago, we implemented a variety of strategies to maintain the quality of our programs while ensuring the fiscal integrity of the district. Those strategies have worked for us,” Goldman said.

Awareness Council, a non-profit counseling services agency in Mountain View. “They have helped us in incredible ways garbage-wise, monetarily and with volunteer time,” Kane said, adding that Recology helps other non-profits in the city as well. The city’s landfill diversion rate is already pretty good, city officials said, with 70 percent of the city’s trash diverted from landfills for recycling over the last year. An additional 7,000 tons of waste could be diverted based on the recommendations of city staff members, half of what is needed for the city’s goal of 80 percent. Under a set of new recommended services and costs, Topley estimates that residential users would see only a 1 to 3 percent increase in their garbage bills in 2013-14 in a new Recology contract, reflecting a 1-percent hike on both residential and commercial customers to cover the cost of new, lower emission garbage trucks powered by compressed natural gas, replacing diesel trucks. Garbage rates for commercial businesses could go up by over 20 percent for a new collection of organic waste (a 6- to 9-percent hike to divert 1,760 tons) and

Topley said the city could end up paying for the service on top of the county’s service and in her report, she writes, “staff believes further entrenching household hazardous waste collection and disposal on the government tax roll undermines the zero-waste principle of extended producer responsibility.” Planning Commissioner Chris Clarke asked the council to see about new recycling bins for residents that combine paper and plastic materials, which might make it easier to recycle, he said. Another resident said she looked forward to improvements to Recology’s recycling center on Terra Bella Avenue which council member Ronit Bryant agreed was “a mess” in need of a reconfiguration, more parking and new evening hours to allow access for people who work during the day. It closes at 3 p.m, though it’s open Saturdays. When it’s closed “people throw everything into the bins, including garbage,” the woman said. “There’s mattresses, theres furniture, it’s potentially a fire hazard.”


the 50 units to be demolished were built before the city’s park fee was created in 1971. “Can we get get financing? The simple answer is I do not know,” Moss said after objecting to the housing and park fees. Before the council approved the project, a condition was added to the project to require the reconstruction of the sidewalk along the project and Central Expressway. A motion by council member Tom Means without the sidewalk reconstruction had failed 5-2 with only Means and John Inks in favor.

Moss also described the city’s $2.4 million park fee for the project as “a significant surprise to us.” Prometheus assumed the fee would be much lower, based on the net increase of 84 units to the project, not all 134 new units. City Attorney Jannie Quinn said that would usually be true, but

new enhanced recycling services (a 9 to 11 percent hike to divert 3,300 tons.) Several businesses, including Google, are already participating in a pilot program for composting food waste. “I’d love to see the city be able to implement organics pickup as soon as it can,” said John Dustman, assistant manager of Red Rock Coffee. “We’d love to divert more of our organic waste through such a program.” City staff members don’t recommend a 5 to 8 percent increase for a new weekly collection of residential yard trimmings and food scraps, which could divert 900 to 1,400 tons from the landfill yearly, though a free pilot program for residential food scrap collection that is recommended to evaluate the option. Similarly, city leaders don’t recommend doubling the number of home recycling pickups, which would increase garbage bills by 4 to 7 percent but only divert an estimated 530 tons from landfills.

Cancer Support to close its doors By Emily Efland


or many cancer patients in Mountain View and the surrounding area, one source of support will disappear at the end of this month. Cancer Support Community, an organization dedicated to providing support groups, therapies, and educational workshops for cancer patients and their caretakers, will close its Mountain View branch on June 30. James Bouquin, president and executive director of the Mountain View branch, says that although other organizations exist in the Bay Area for people affected by cancer, Cancer Support Community is unique in providing support groups and educational programs for cancer patients of all kinds, instead of focusing on one specific type of the disease. In order to allow some of Cancer Support Community’s programs available, El Camino Hospital in Mountain View has volunteered funding and space to hold evening support groups and Saturday education programs beginning in July. The organization’s only other location in Northern California is in Walnut Creek, although it does provide various services through medical centers around the East Bay. All of Cancer Support Community’s services are free, and the organization never turns anyone away, Bouquin says. The model proved unsustainable in Mountain View, and the organization is closing for financial reasons. The Mountain View branch opened in 2010 after a group of Silicon Valley residents petitioned the organization for a nearby location and provided funding to establish it. A large grant from El Camino Hospital led Cancer Support Community to open its branch in Mountain View in a space close to the hospital, the organization’s largest benefactor. Another grant from Cadence Design Systems allowed Cancer Support Community to build their Mountain View building into a “beautiful, therapeutic space,” says Bouquin. But the company doesn’t make those grants anymore, he said. “The idea of finding another $100,000 to support that space and have the funding to run the other centers won’t happen right now,” Bouquin says. “We’d be very open to opening a new center and additional services, but we’d have to find another organization to underwrite that.”

Although Bouquin has reached out to other organizations for support, so far only El Camino Hospital has responded with an offer to host support groups and education programs at their facilities. While both t he cancer patient and caregiver support groups of fered by Cancer Support CommuJames nity are the Bouquin most popular of the organization’s programs, Bouquin also mentions high turnout for the exercise and movement classes, as well as education courses that focus on homeopathic therapies to complement Western medicine. The organization’s administrative work is supported by volunteers, many of them cancer survivors, but their programs and services are led by trained professionals. According to Bouquin, approximately 450 people used Cancer Support Community’s Mountain View services in the 18 months since the branch opened. About two-thirds were cancer patients, and one-third were family, friends, and caregivers. “Our first responsibility is to our members, so I personally met with all the folks who are our members to tell them about the news, and let them know about alternatives,” Bouquin says.

Cancer Support Community member Peggy Liou says she was shocked upon learning of the Mountain View location’s closing. “It’s pretty devastating to me, the news of the closing, almost like having cancer again,” Liou says. Although El Camino Hospital will offer evening support groups from Cancer Support Community, Liou says she will have to search for support from other organizations. Her eyesight prevents her from driving comfortably at night. Liou was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in December of 2010. She says she initially visited Cancer Support Community in Mountain View to learn about the organization’s services, and ended up attending a variety of their support groups and seminars. Although Liou describes herself as an independent person who felt no need for support groups before her diagnosis, she says she was humbled by the other participants she met. “Everybody has cancer that returned two or three times and they are still fighting and upbeat, so I feel like there is hope,” Liou says. Although she says her family and friends wanted to help her with her battle against breast cancer, they did not necessarily know how cancer patients feel. “I feel pretty useless sometimes,” Liou says. “It’s pretty tough.” V

“While this solution isn’t perfect (in fact, at 30, I don’t qualify for relief myself), this is a tremendous victory that couldn’t have happened without the passion and dedication of hundreds of thousands of people,” Vargas wrote. The petition had more than 1,000 signatures by the end of the day.

never said so. “People were scared and afraid,” Beaudouin said. It took 13 years for a plaque to be installed on the sidewalk commemorating the site as Silicon Valley’s birthplace. He doesn’t doubt that his efforts would have been much easier if Shockley’s story were a brighter one. “That’s my personal feeling and the personal feeling of a lot of people,” Beaudouin said. Getting nowhere Beaudouin said he began working to save 391 San Antonio Road in 1987. When the city was celebrating its 75th anniversary, he saw that officials were making many claims about the city, but not birthplace of Silicon Valley. He says he began speaking to some city officials until he was “blue in the face,” about Shockley and his lab at 391 San Antonio Road, but got nowhere. Finally, during her term as mayor in 1998, the late Rosemary Stasek had a plaque installed in the sidewalk declaring Shockley’s lab the birthplace of Silicon Valley, which Beaudouin co-wrote with another former Shockley employee, Hans Queisser. “Rosemary was the one who really pushed it, made it happen,” Beaudouin said. But nothing was ever done to guarantee preservation of the birthplace of Silicon Valley and Beaudouin stopped his efforts. “I got tired of going over and over the same thing,” Beaudouin said. Beaudouin disputes Palo Alto’s claim that the Hewlett Packard garage is the birthplace of Silicon Valley. Beaudouin recalls that Shockley knew Bill Hewlett and

once told him, “Bill, you should work on silicon, silicon is where the future is.” It took several years for Hewlett-Packard to catch on, Beaudouin said. Beaudouin says the building now used by Halal International Market at 391 San Antonio Road is the same one used by Shockley’s team from 1956-1961 before moving to Page Mill Road in Palo Alto. Only the front facade has been changed. Controversial views Shockley shared a Nobel prize in 1956 for the invention of the transistor but reportedly said his work in eugenics in the last three decades of his life was the most important thing he’d done. He wrote a book called “Shockley on Eugenics,” about the discredited ideas of genetic and racial superiority espoused by Nazis and some American elite in the early 20th century, but well debunked by Shockley’s day. Shockley once proposed that those with an IQ of less than 100 be paid $1,000 for every point below 100 to not have children, claiming the large proportion of children born to those with a low IQ was causing a reverse evolution. He claimed that intelligence formed along racial lines, and races with higher IQs were more advanced. He denied he was a racist, a term he claimed was an “epithet” meant to hurt his self esteem in a TV interview in 1974. “The major cause of the American negro’s intellectual and social deficits is hereditary and racially genetic in origin, and thus not remediable to a major degree by practical improvements in the environment,” he said in the 1974 interview, which can be seen on Youtube. Perhaps his most controversial

quote came in 1982 when he was asked if his views amounted to racism. He reportedly said “If you found a breed of dog that was unreliable and temperamental, why shouldn’t you regard it in a less favorable light?” People reportedly picketed whenever Shockley spoke publicly. In 1989 he died at Stanford, where he taught electrical engineering. No funeral was held. Strong reactions His views still elicit strong reactions. “I’m not a Shockley fan, they don’t get anymore racist than him,” said City Council member Laura Macias. Macias said she would be willing to commemorate the building’s history, but not Shockley himself. Beaudouin showed drawings of a historical display that was

to be installed years ago at the San Antonio shopping center. Large steel wafers stick out of the ground, one of which says “Birthplace of Silicon Valley” and and has a display titled “The William Shockley story.” Beaudouin says the proposal never went anywhere and he was never told why. In 2009 officials in Auburn, Calif. faced a similar dilemma when Shockley’s widow left 28 acres for a park to be named after Shockley, sparking public outcry. “I cannot fathom how officials in Auburn would have the gall to name an area park after a white supremacist and think that would be readily accepted by residents,” Barry Broad, chairman of the Jewish Community Relations Council, told an Auburn newspaper. Beaudouin says Shockley still

Neighbors and users of the Annex say they like the informal nature of the existing park, and some have opposed any changes, citing the potential loss of wildlife in the park, such as the great blue heron that resides there and hunts ground squirrels. Others have said the basin protects at least part of the Annex from future development.

deserves recognition. Controversy over his views “doesn’t change the fact he contributed enormously to the development of the transistor and the integrated circuit,” Beaudouin said. “Everyone who walks around with a cell phone owes it to William Shockley. I think he was superb scientist, there’s no question about it.” Beaudouin said the experience working for Shockley for seven years in the early 1960s “was a good life.” Working conditions were not intolerable as described by the group Shockley called the “traitorous eight,” who famously left his lab in 1956 to start Fairchild Semiconductor, Intel and other companies that commercialized the silicon transistor and integrated circuit. Email Daniel DeBolt at engineers found that flooding would not be as bad as previously thought. Engineers found that large portion of hillside near Lehigh cement quarry actually did not flow into the creek, which also allowed the size of the Annex basin to shrink. The Water District has also proposed flood walls along Permanente Creek north of Highway 101 and south of Amphitheater Parkway, protecting Google headquarters from flooding, the risks of which may increase as the sea level rises. And cement channels would be removed from some sections of the creek, allowing it to be widened and deepened. The district would also replace two bridges where Mountain View Avenue crosses Permanente Creek. Information about the proposal is available on the city’s website, V

Good investment in affordable housing



fter more than four years of tangling with the owner of a substandard building at the corner of Rengstorff Avenue and Old Middlefield Road, the city finally appears headed to a solution that will redevelop the property and create 51 studio units of affordable housing over a small retail space and a parking garage. The City Council was firmly on board last week when members voted 6-0 to proceed with plans that will displace 48 low-income residents and two popular taquerias at the site, which has been a nightmare for city code enforcement officers for years. The 1946era structure was built two years before the city implemented its first building code in 1948, and it has become one of the city’s most prominent code violators. In fact, council members noted that in part their support for the project relates to the amount of time spent at the building by code enforcement officers and staff members from the city attorney’s office. The project’s $9.3 million cost will come in part from grants and the BMR housing fund and be built by ROEM and Eden Housing, the same company that will build a 51-unit affordable housing project at Evelyn Avenue and Franklin Street. Council member Tom Means, who often finds fault with the city taking away free enterprise opportunities, was firmly behind this project. “We’ve got to fix it, and to me the easiest way to fix it is to go to another project that is compliant. My feeling is we just move ahead and get this to be a better site. It gets rid of a headache to some extent.” As the costs for owner-occupied housing and rentals continue to climb, it makes sense for the city to provide an opportunity for 51 additional units of affordable housing,which is becoming more and more difficult to find here. The studio-size apartments would be rented to those making up to $32,625 a year, with rents ranging from $521 to $793 a month. Two people could occupy one unit, although city staff members estimate that only six of the 51 units would be occupied by two tenants, which is comparable to the mix at similar projects. One eye-opening part of the city’s costs in this project is the $744,000 that will be set aside to cover relocating the 48 tenants and five businesses who occupy the property. Residents of the old building will be eligible for a generous relocation allowance, which according to state law includes “persons displaced from their homes, businesses or farms as a result of the actions of a public entity.” In this case, tenants are entitled to moving expenses, relocation advisory services, “decent, safe and sanitary” replacement housing, and a “rental differential payment,” which makes up a large part of relocation costs. According to city officials, depending on their situation, some tenants moving out could be entitled to more than $40,000 in rent differential payments alone. For example, if a tenant is leaving a $900-a-month apartment for a unit costing $2,000 a month, the differential would be $1,100 a month multiplied by 42 months, or $46,200 over the three and one-half years. Specific examples are not available for business relocation expenses, but could be substantial after adding up the costs to install signs, paint and carpeting and numerous other improvements typical when relocating a business. The good news is that it may be possible for two of the smaller businesses to return to the new complex, which will have about 2,800 square feet of commercial space. Given its options, the city made the correct decision to move ahead with this project, which not only will provide badly-needed affordable housing, but also will replace a building that has had a difficult time meeting the city’s health and safety codes. And, it will be putting the city’s BMR housing funds to good use.

HOSPITAL AND DISTRICT DOING A GOOD JOB I have lived in this community for 46 years and am so proud that we have a hospital, owned by the taxpayers, that is both a large employer and a provider of quality health care. However, there are individuals suggesting that while El Camino Hospital is doing a good job, it should be removed from voter control. As a taxpayer and voter in this community, not only do I disagree with that, but more importantly, I think that ultimately it should be the voters who make that decision. After all, voters established the district 50 years ago to ensure that health care would be provided to the residents of this area. Further, the voters more recently approved a measure to rebuild the Mountain View hospital to make it seismic compliant and meet the state mandate. The district and hospital are doing their jobs and doing them well. As a taxpayer and voter, I think we ought to let the good work continue. Bob Adams, former chair, El Camino Hospital Foundation

DISTRICT GRATEFUL FOR HOSPITAL’S HELP There has been some discussion lately about the way the El

Camino Hospital District spends its funds in the community and whether it provides sufficient support to the community benefits program. In my opinion, it does. Hospital district grants have benefited the health needs of our students, allowing us to provide nurses to our medically fragile and diabetic children and to begin addressing the issue of childhood obesity. As a school system, we understand the way government spends its money and how we can maximize the dollars we receive. Ideally, we would cover our every need through state and federal funding, but at a time when funding is increasingly difficult to come by, we’re grateful that the hospital district remains dedicated to the community’s health. We could not meet the health needs of our students without them. I urge the Santa Clara County Local Agency Formation Commission to vote against the recommendations outlined in the “El Camino Hospital District Service Review and Audit” and allow us to continue our vital work with the support of the hospital district.

of perfectly cooked Canadian salmon. The miso-garlic sauce, though, wasn’t salty, sweet, earthy, fruity or savory — flavors most associated with miso. Like most of the dishes, this one was bland. A couple of sprigs of fresh asparagus accompanied. Orange chicken ($22) featured chunks of organic breast in sticky-sweet and supposedly spicy orange sauce. Let’s say sweet with the vaguest hint of chili. The portion size didn’t support the price, with no extras on the plate. The side of French string beans ($8) sat in a pool of nondescript brown sauce. Dimestore spaghetti tongs were left as the serving utensils. Desserts were all $6.75. Nothing worth the calories. The molten cake was unexciting chocolate sponge cake with warm chocolate cream inside. The tiramisu substituted rum syrup for espresso. I don’t recall seeing Italian desserts on Asian or Asian-fusion menus before. “Mango Dreaming” was described as homemade mango pudding with “real mango chunks.” The pudding was so congealed and rubbery it might have bounced had it fallen off

Those wines, by the way, were $12 per miserly pour for the 2010 Talbott Logan Chardonnay, Santa Lucia, which retails for $15.99 the bottle; and $9 per pour for the 2011 Yalumba Viognier, Barossa Valley, which retails for $11.29 the bottle at local stores.

improvement, and Gorcsi seems determined to tweak what a manager can tweak. Bigger hurdles remain for Pang: the menu, the prices and the overall concept. The restaurant’s name doesn’t mean anything to most Americans. I admire subsequent generations doing their own thing, but other than the name, there seems scant connection to the original Yucca de Lac. I don’t know how the Pang ancestors would respond, but so far, I doubt former waiter Lo Chee Ping would approve. V

(Century 20, Century 16) Musicals are something of an acquired taste, and “Rock of Ages” is more cheeseburger than lobster bisque. There is a silliness to the whole affair (partially intended) that makes it difficult to get very invested in the plot — though Tom Cruise’s magnetic performance in itself almost makes the movie worth the price of admission. Almost. To say Cruise steals the show is an understatement — he purloins it with the gusto of a treasure-hungry pirate. In “Rock” the actors belt out one iconic 1980s rock tune after another (think Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard and Poison), but like many musicals, it fares better on stage. The story suffers beneath all of the prancing and verse, and a movie without story is like a single-string guitar. It just doesn’t play well and grows tiresome in a hurry. Rated PG-13 for sexual content, language, some heavy drinking and suggestive dancing. Two hours, 3 minutes. — T.H.


(Century 16, Century 20) An eclectic cast and stellar visual effects coalesce to make “Men in Black 3” a quintessential kernel of summer popcorn cinema. Although the uninspired and often formulaic screenplay dampers what could have been a top-notch sci-fi comedy, the film’s excellent production team and pantheon of talented actors create an entertaining escapade. Fans of the first two “Men in Black” films will find this a fitting addition to the quirky, comic-book-based franchise. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reunite as Agent J and Agent K, members of a clandestine government organization charged with keeping tabs on Earth’s extraterrestrial visitors. Alien baddie Boris The Animal busts out of a lunar-based prison and leaps back in time to 1969 with the goal of killing his captor, Agent K, and sparking an invasion of Earth. Boris’s scheme forces Agent J to venture back to ‘69 and work alongside Agent K’s younger self (Josh Brolin) in hopes of launching a protective energy “net” around Earth and quashing Boris’ machinations. A sentimental ending borders on sappy but helps bring the “Men in Black” franchise full circle. And while the picture’s cartoonish quality dilutes what tension arises, it also ratchets up a sense of unabashed amusement. Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence and brief suggestive content. One hour, 44 minutes. — T.H.


(Century 20, Century 16) For well over a decade, writer-director Wes Anderson has faced criticism of his films being fussily repetitive. Though his new film “Moonrise Kingdom” is nothing if not fussy, it’s Anderson’s freshest, breeziest work since the high-water mark of 1998’s “Rushmore.” “Moonrise” tells of a pair of troubled and gifted 12-year-olds who, in 1965, elope into the wild of New Penzance Island. Other than Anderson’s own oeuvre, the film best recalls “Harold and Maude” as an offbeat romance of two plain-spoken lovers against the world. Anderson contrasts the simplicity of young love with the adults’ insistence of complicating everything. The script by Anderson and Roman Coppola allows none of the plot elements to spin out of control, and the director keeps it short and sweet. So if Anderson’s carefully regulated compositions and dollhouse-styled production design send you climbing up the walls, keep your distance. But this time, the filmmaker isn’t too clever by half: He’s just clever enough. Rated PG-13 for sexual content and smoking. One hour, 34 minutes. — P.C.
