MV driver arrested in deadly pedestrian crash By Nick Veronin

F

amily members of the man killed in a grisly car accident last month reacted with relief Tuesday to the news that police have arrested the driver of the vehicle that killed William Ware as he waited for his bus on the morning of June 21. Shortly before 9:30 a.m. that day, police say 21-year-old Mountain View resident Matthew Pumar allegedly sped through a

red light, swerved to avoid a truck entering the intersection and lost control of his car. The vehicle jumped a curb, plowed through a pole, two trees and smashed into William Ware, killing the 50-year-old Matthew man who was Pumar waiting at the bus stop. The car finally came

to rest near the intersection of California Street and Escuela Avenue, according to Liz Wylie, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department. Pumar turned himself in to officers at the Mountain View Police Department on July 10, Wylie said. Pumar was accompanied by his attorney and a bail bondsman. After See DEADLY CRASH, page 8

Historic home may be razed for office building By Daniel DeBolt

C

ity Council members put the fate of a historic downtown home into the hands of developer Roger Burnell on Tuesday night, allowing him to demolish it if it can’t be moved elsewhere. The council voted 5-2 to allow Burnell to build a four-story office building on a quarter-acre site at 902 Villa Street, current site of the Pearson House, built

INSIDE

in the 1870s and one of the first homes built downtown. Council members said after several failed attempts to save the house failed, it was time to move on even if it meant demolishing it. Some expressed interest in moving the house onto a nearby downtown parking lot until a new site could be found, or to Shoreline Park where it could be restored near the Rengstorff House. But saving the house was not made

a requirement for Burnell, and neither he or the council made any promises Tuesday night. “Everyone wants to save the house but nobody wants to take it,” said council member Laura Macias. “If you want a house, it seems that Roger has a house for you.” The Michelin star-rated gourmet restaurant next door, Chez TJ, switched from opponent to MICHELLE LE

Beth Sage Pattie June 5, 1956 – May 11, 2012 Beth Sage (Lenhart) Pattie, resident of Pleasanton, Calif., died May 11, 2012, from complications of cancer treatment. She was born in Palo Alto and was a graduate of Palo Alto High School. She was a member of the first girl Sea Scout troop in the area whose activities centered around the Palo Alto yacht harbor and Sea Scout House, now an interpretive center. She graduated with a B.S. degree in nutrition from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and later an M.A. in Psychology from Fuller Graduate School of Psychology in Pasadena. She was a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Pleasanton. In addition to her gentle humor and practical therapy techniques, she was planning to add the unique skills developed in recent studies with Cathryn Clerc at Hippocrene Springs — integrating horses as partners in the therapeutic process. Sage is survived by her husband of 32 years, Steven Pattie of Pleasanton; and sons, Nathan Norris Pattie of Honolulu and Lucas Ohio Pattie of Martinez; her mother, Gracella (Gee-Gee) Anderson Lenhart of Palo Alto, who is the granddaughter of Melville Best Anderson, a member of

FIRE DAMAGES HOUSES

SLAP-HAPPY JOGGER

A fence was charred and two houses were slightly damaged when a one-alarm blaze broke out on July 3 in the side yard of a single family home in the 200 block of Diablo Avenue, a local fire official said. Firefighters received a call at 3:35 p.m. reporting the fire, and arrived to find flames and smoke in between the two homes, said Jaime Garrett, spokeswoman for the Mountain View Fire Department. The blaze was extinguished by 3:42 p.m., and fire officials remained on scene for about an hour and a half to make sure the fire was completely extinguished. No one was injured or displaced. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, Garrett said. At this point, fireworks are not suspected as the cause, she said. —Nick Veronin

A bicyclist was assaulted by a jogger on Stevens Creek Trail around noon, July 4, police said. The male victim was biking down the trail and yelled at two joggers up ahead, warning them that he was going to pass, according to Jaime Garrett, spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department. After the joggers did not move, the bicyclist got off his bike. The jogger — a 40-year-old white man, of medium build and wearing dark shorts — slapped the victim in the face. The other jogger, a woman who appeared to be running with the assailant, did not get involved. The two joggers then left and the victim contacted the police. —Rebecca Alger

COMMERCIAL BURGLARY 2000 block Grant Rd., 7/5

What: The proposed Permanente Creek Flood Protection Project (Project) would provide flood

protection for residents, businesses, and infrastructure along the Permanente and Hale Creek corridors in the cities of Mountain View, Los Altos, and Cupertino. The proposed Project would consist of flood detention basins at Rancho San Antonio County Park, Cuesta Annex, and McKelvey Park; floodwalls and levees along Permanente Creek north of US-101; concrete channel replacement on portions of Permanente and Hale Creeks; and infrastructure improvements on the Permanente Creek Diversion Channel.

Why: Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act, the District, as the lead agency for the Project, has prepared a Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) to evaluate environmental impacts of the proposed Project. The Draft SEIR identified potentially significant environmental impacts associated with aesthetics, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, soils, water resources, noise and vibration, public health, recreation, and traffic. The majority of impacts were determined to be less than significant after the implementation of mitigation measures proposed for the Project.

Construction impacts related to traffic flow in proximity to the Cuesta Annex site and violation of applicable air quality and noise standards were determined to be significant and unavoidable even after implementation of traffic, air quality, and noise mitigation measures.

Public Review: The Draft SEIR will be available for public review from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the District Headquarters Building (5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118) starting July 18, 2012. A copy of the Draft SEIR will also be available at the Cupertino Public Library reference desk (10800 Torre Avenue, Cupertino, CA 95014), at the Los Altos Public Library reference desk (13 S.

CALTRAIN GETS FUNDS TO GO ELECTRIC With $700 million in funding coming to Caltrain, the agency expects to see modern electric rail service by 2019, according to a press release. Theoretically that means trains that can carry more people for less money. The agency will receive $600 million as a result of the state Legislature’s recent approval of the high-speed rail project, and another $100 million from Proposition 1A. Supporters of electrification have touted its potential to reduce pollution, lower operational costs, and enable it to share tracks with high-speed rail. “There is a generational responsibility to leave behind

ver since neon spandex, pump-up music and enthusiasm for aerobic dancing spread across the country in the early 1970s, aerobics classes have been held in downtown Mountain View. The class routines combine upper and lower body exercise with dance techniques, a workout created by Jacki Sorensen in 1969. While the outfits and the disco soundtrack may have changed over the years, in Mountain View one thing has remained the same: aerobics instructor Joan Rabin. Rabin, 67, owns the Mountain View franchise of Sorensen’s program, where she has been teaching aerobics classes for

more than 30 years. Apart from the dance routines and music, Rabin notes one other striking change in aerobics — there are more older students enrolling in the classes. Rabin attributes this trend to research on the benefits of exercise in old age, even for people heading into their 80s and 90s. “People used to get to age 50 and they would drop out; now people are staying longer into their 60s and 70s,” she notes. Yet she does not only teach senior citizens. Rabin offers childcare during her hour-long classes, and says that contributes to the large turnout of young See DANCING, page 12

Mountain View set to OK Chick-Fil-A By Daniel DeBolt

F

ast-food chain Chick-Fil-A is hoping to expand into the Bay Area with a new location in Mountain View, though the company’s apparent opposition to gay marriage might not be so appetizing in these parts. Zoning administrator Peter Gilli said in an email that at the meeting on Wednesday evening, July 11, he may approve a proposed Chick-Fil-A to be built at 1962 El Camino Real in Mountain View, replacing a Sizzler near Rengstorff Avenue. City planners do not recommend he approve a drive-through that had been requested but City Council members oppose. The meeting is scheduled for after the Voice goes to press on Wednesday. Check www.mvvoice.com for an update. While council members say the owner’s views are not a basis for rejecting Chick-Fil-A, the chain common to the Southern and Midwestern states does face opposition here over its support of anti-gay rights groups. “I just want everyone to realize this is a company that does spend millions of dollars on anti-gay initiatives,” said Ray Hixson, a Mountain View resident and activist for marriage equality. “For me, it’s just like if I knew a business funded discrimination

against blacks, against women, against any minority group. I would not frequent that establishment. This to me is the same thing.” Chik-Fil-A’s WinShape Foundation reportedly gave over $3 million to anti-gay rights groups between 2003 and 2009, including Marriage and Family Legacy Fund and Family Research Council, which oppose gay marriage. The foundation also reportedly funded groups that are said to bully gay students, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Focus on the Family, and a group which promotes ex-gay therapy, Exodus International. Chik-Fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, reportedly has said “We’re not anti-anybody,” and that “Our mission is to create raving fans.” “Chick-Fil-A coming to Mountain View is actually going to leave a bad taste in the mouths

of Bay Area residents who value diversity and equality above all,” said Stuart Gaffney, media director of Marriage Equality USA, which organized a rally in Mountain View in February to celebrate a court ruling against Proposition 8, California’s gay marriage ban. “In the four years since the passage of Prop 8, every poll taken shows more and more support for marriage equality,” Gaffney said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if equality-minded residents were interested in eating elsewhere.” Council member Laura Macias said she disagreed with the owner’s views, but could not make that a basis for rejecting their proposal. “What they are doing politically as owners and individuals is not funny and I would not want to supSee CHIK-FIL-A, page 12

supporter at the meeting, with volunteer gardener Louise Christy saying Burnell had offered to help pay for a garden that could grow despite new shade from the four-story building. Council member Jac Siegel and Ronit Bryant opposed the project and the demolition of the Pearson House, with Siegel saying it set a bad precedent for bulldozing historic homes in the city. Bryant said the office building would contribute to the “homogenization” of downtown and did not justify demolition of the house. The office building will also be the first to have a parking garage on the first floor, something that neighbors complained about and which Siegel and Bryant said other developers may copy. Council members recalled that controversy over a proposal for the site years ago spurred the city’s historic building ordinance, which inadvertently ended up putting dozens of old Mountain View homes onto a state historic register. The proposed demolition required an environmental impact report, which found the home of early Mountain View businessman Charles Pearson “locally significant and historic” and that demolition would cause

6

a “significant and unavoidable impact.” It turns out the Pearson House isn’t the only historic structure on the site. A tiny shack-like house is actually the last immigrant farm worker house in Mountain View, according to Los Altos resident Mary Marinovich who said her grandparents lived in it as immigrant workers 100 years ago. At one point, there were many like it in the valley. Council members expressed interest in restoring the small house and moving it to Shoreline Park. At the end of the discussion, Mayor Kasperzak said he saw “I think, a higher interest in the immigrant house than the Pearson house” among council members. “We restored the Rengstorff House, let’s also show how the workers lived here,” Siegel said. “It wouldn’t be a big deal to have it moved out to Shoreline.” Steven Aldrich, CEO of Mountain View’s Outright.com, expressed interest in moving into the 21,745 square foot office building. Burnell recently upped the environmental friendliness of the building to LEED gold standards while a historic display about the Pearson House may be part of a 932-square-foot retail or restaurant space that would share the first floor with the garage.

Disability Pride Parade moves to Mountain View By Emily Efland

D

isabled and non-disabled residents of Silicon Valley will march together in downtown Mountain View on Saturday, July 21, as part of Silicon Valley Independent Living Center’s third annual Disability Pride Parade. The parade focuses on spreading a message of acceptance and pride, with the theme of preserving social justice. According to the Silicon Valley Living Center’s executive director, Sarah Triano, the parade seeks to unite disabled and non-disabled community members in a fight for safety measures and funding for vulnerable citizens. “We really feel that in this area of budget cuts, the safety net for a lot of populations is being demolished,” Triano says. “We need to join together to really make sure that that safety net exists for some of our county’s most vulnerable people.” Although the parade was held in San Jose for the past two years, it is moving to downtown Mountain View this year in order to allow disabled Mountain View residents who previously could not attend the parade due to accessibility issues to participate,

Triano says. The downtown Mountain View event begins with a parade at 11 a.m., and a community festival at City Hall, Civic Center Plaza and Pioneer Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The festival, focused on disability awareness, aid, and education, includes vendor booths from Santa Clara County organizations and state organizations such as Disability Rights California. The parade coincides with other disability pride events around the country, including the original Disability Pride Parade in Chicago that was started by Triano in 2004. Triano says

she initially began the parade in order to combat the shame that many young people with disabilities feel. “We really had to do something to send a loud message to youth with disabilities that they were whole, beautiful human beings just the way they are, that being disabled is a natural part of humanity, and they should never be ashamed of who they are,” Triano says.

Steins Beer Garden gets council OK By Daniel DeBolt

I

n what some saw a pivotal decision for downtown, elation filled the City Council chambers July 3 when the City Council approved a Germanthemed restaurant and beer garden that had been blocked by a handful of neighbors. Council members voted 6-1 in favor of Steins, with Jac Siegel opposed. Steins proprietor Ted Kim sought the overturn of restrictions on his outdoor beer garden, which would have to close at 6 p.m. half the year and 8 p.m. the other half, according to a May 9 zoning administrator decision which cited neighbor’s noise concerns. Kim said his restaurant, slated for the former home of Golden Wok at 895 Villa Street, would not be viable if the “focal point� beer garden had to shut down before normal dinner hours were over. “I think the zoning administrator went slightly overboard in closing at 6,� said council member Ronit Bryant. “That seems a little early.� Council members allowed a 10 p.m. closing time for the patio Sunday through Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Members Laura Macias and John Inks even supported allowing more than 64 seats on the patio, but no vote on that

issue was taken. Complaints from a handful of neighbors about potential noise from the beer garden stirred interest in the issue among downtown residents, foodies and beer enthusiasts, 14 of whom spoke in support, expressing excitement over the quality food and high-end beers that have been promised. Kim said he felt all the news coverage and discussion among downtown residents about the conflict over the beer garden was emblematic of greater discussion about how downtown should develop in the future. Some wondered why the neighbors had moved to a busy downtown area only to complain about noise, “like people buying near the airport and wanting the airport to move.� “Imagine if your neighbor decided to have a barbecue every night of the year, that’s how I feel,� said Michelle Lin, one of six opponents who live across the street and spoke against the project. The neighbors had included in their complaints issues with the Monte Carlo night club, perhaps downtown’s most loathed business, which lets out at 2 a.m. and whose customers are said to litter, urinate and fight near the neighbors’ homes. “Residents probably wouldn’t be protesting at all if it weren’t for the

2 a.m. problem,� Lin said, referring to the night club patrons. “We are hypersensitive.� “Complaints about the night club are a separate issue we have to deal with on its own,� said council member Margaret AbeKoga, a statement later echoed by other council members. A study found that there would be some increase in noise because of the patio but that it paled in comparison with the noise from car traffic, which helped create an average of 85 decibels in peak noise and a high of 135 db, said noise engineer Robert King. “There’s clearly a lot of activity going on in this neighborhood,� King said. “A person living in that building is affected by where they are living, there’s no way around it.� Council member Siegel noted that neighbors had moved in to 230 Bryant when the restaurant’s patio was not used for outdoor dining. He called for a special six-month review of the restaurant to see if neighbors were impacted by the noise. But other members said the city’s existing processes for complaints were adequate, though zoning administrator Peter Gilli told the council that something “pretty extreme� would have to happen to cause the permit for the patio to be revoked.

Hospital names members of advisory committees By Nick Veronin

With a wide variety of backgrounds and skills, the 21 men and women have been divided among each committee based on their professional experience. The members will be asked to help the hospital board make decisions on “governance, finance/investments, quality, executive compensation and audit/corporate compliance,� according to an El Camino press release. A majority of the volunteers come from nearby cities on the Peninsula and the South Bay, with a few from the North Bay and East Bay. Together they comprise the Governance Committee; the Quality Patient Care and Patient Experience Committee; the Executive Compensa-

tion Committee; the Corporate Compliance/Privacy and Audit Committee; the Finance Committee; and the Investment Committee. A hospital board member will lead each committee. It would be impossible for the hospital’s board of directors to understand everything about every subject, said board chairman John Zoglin in the press release. “As the healthcare environment continues to evolve it is important to have individuals on the hospital board committee who bring a depth of knowledge and experience in areas that will help us continuously improve how we serve our patients and our community,� Zoglin said. “These new members are leaders in their respective fields and we look forward to applying their insight and knowledge as we move our hospital into the future.� The names and current occupations of the new committee members are:

Governance: Gary Kalbach, founding partner, El Dorado Ventures, Los Altos Hills; Peter W. Moran, general partner/managing partner, DCM, Los Altos; Mark W. Sickles, chairman and chief executive officer, Mark W. Sickles, LLC, Sausalito. Quality, Patient Care and Patient Experience: Katherine Bryan-Jones Anderson, LEAN Promotion office director and senior LEAN development director, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Portola Valley; Elizabeth (Lisa) Joyce Freeman, director, VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Menlo Park; R. Cary Hill, Jr. MD, chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology, El Camino Hospital, Mountain View; Donald M. Nielsen, MD, senior advisor for Health and chairman of the advisory board, Hearst Business Media, Alamo; Robert H. Pinsker, MD, medical director of Anesthesiology, El Camino Hospital, Palo Alto.

out with the mining towns,� said member Jac Siegel. “That just went away a long time ago. This is not a university. People need to grow up and they need to go out� of where they work. While the discussion focused almost entirely on North Bayshore, there was dissent on the council about other parts of the general plan as well, most notably the council’s move in April to allow much higher densities for key El Camino Real intersections (up to a 3.0 floor area ratio) that could mean more than the fivestory buildings residents said they supported, Siegel said. Environmentalists were split over the pitch for new housing in North Bayshore, with supporters saying it would reduce greenhouse gasses from commuters and wildlife preservationists saying it would encroach on wildlife in Shoreline Park. “We have an increasing imbalance of more jobs and less housing,� said Aaron Grossman of the Coalition for Sustainable Planning, calling for the housing.

said protests from preservationists were “long on emotion, short on vision.� “Somebody needs to tell wildlife that greenhouse gas reduction is more important than their habitat,� said Siegel. ‘Respect nature’ He and member Laura Macias said the housing would introduce dogs and cats to prey on sensitive species at Shoreline, including the rare burrowing owl, which lives in holes dug by ground squirrels. Siegel said Highway 101 would no longer be a barrier for wildlife and new residents could not be expected to not have pets. “We need to respect nature and allow it room to grow,� Macias said. “There are over 22 endangered species at Shoreline and North Bayshore. We’ve provided this wonderful barrier that gives a home to wildlife there.� She added that she was shocked to see the largest colony of egrets in the South Bay living in the middle of an office park at the end of Charleston Road. Macias read a letter from Glen Lisles, the city manager during ize) how I feel as an individual, or how the family feels collectively about the news, we are glad that the legal process is moving forward,� said William’s brother, Jim Ware. “The Ware family would like to thank the MVPD for their efforts to complete their investigation in a timely and professional manner.� “I can’t thank the Mountain View police and the commu-

Pod cars Council members said the 1,100 homes proposed would be found to be inadequate for supporting the sort of second downtown neighborhood some said they wanted there. Members Siegel and Margaret AbeKoga said they’ve been told many times that 5,000 homes would be needed in any neighborhood to support basic retail services such as a grocery store, a number not yet hit even on Castro Street. Siegel said it was “impossible,� adding, “I believe it would make

more traffic there.� Prior to the meeting Mayor Kasperzak made headlines by proposing a pod car system as a fix to the traffic problem, connecting the 1,100 homes and nearby offices to downtown services. He said it could be made a requirement of housing and that it would spur North Bayhore companies to implement such a system, which council members unanimously supported as a concept in 2010. He had written a memo to council members on the topic, which wasn’t technically a violation of the Brown Act, but miffed other members nonetheless. “I was very disappointed to get an open letter from the mayor rather than discuss it in a meeting where I could respond to it,� Bryant said. Mayor Kasperzak was apologetic. “I did not expect that reaction,� Kasperzak said. “I did want to get an idea out in front of you. I did not think that through clearly enough.� Council members still expressed support for the pod car system to connect North

Bayshore to downtown. Siegel said that as a mediator of neighborhood disputes, he was familiar with fair housing laws, and that there were no guarantees that the North Bayshore homes wouldn’t house families who would act as opponents to future commercial development and require new school facilities in the area, which could eat into lands reserved for wildlife. “I really believe you create conflict when you put housing right with commercial,� Siegel said. “I know fair housing laws. You can’t not rent to people with many people in the family.� Means agreed on that point, saying “I witnessed a lot of NIMBYism (not in my backyard) disguised under various things.� He said new office projects in North Bayshore, which could more than double the density of existing buildings and increase employee count there from 17,000 to nearly 30,000, would have seen opposition “as soon as we put in the first units.�

nity enough for all the help,� said Dolores Marquez, Ware’s niece. “It was really hard to be patient.� During that time police collected the evidence they needed to make the July 10 arrest, Wylie said. That included gathering witness statements and evaluating the distance the car traveled and objects it knocked over, as well as the damage it did to Ware’s body,

which his family says was dismembered. “Although the investigation has not yet been completed, enough evidence existed to show that Pumar ran the red light at that intersection and was speeding,� Wylie wrote. “Ware was standing on the sidewalk. The primary cause of the collision was reckless driving. Drugs and alcohol were not a factor.� If convicted, Pumar could be

sentenced to up to six years in a state prison, according to Cindy Hendrickson, supervising deputy district attorney for Santa Clara County. Court proceedings will begin in about two weeks, Hendrickson said, estimating that Pumar will likely be arraigned sometime around July 24 at the Palo Alto Courthouse. A prosecutor has yet to be assigned to the case.

Shoreline’s formative years. He called it “a special place where the lights need to be turned off at night.� “We’ve spent so much time trying to make it the best place we possibly can,� Macias said. “We can’t love it to death by building every square inch.� Siegel applauded Google’s interest in general plan provisions that will allow the company to transfer development rights for the edges of North Bayshore to build more densely in the center of the area, away from wildlife.

The policy, which is part of larger efforts in the county and in local schools, was commended by Victor Ojakian, a former Palo Alto mayor who is leading suicide prevention efforts as chair of the County’s Mental Health Department board. Ojakian said Mountain View’s rate of suicide was higher than average at about 7 per year. It is the sixth worst in the county. —Daniel DeBolt

Hospital reaches out to Chinese with Alzheimer’s By Nick Veronin

A

new program led by the Alzheimer’s Association and supported by the El Camino Hospital District aims to increase awareness of the debilitating neurological disease within the local Chinese community. This summer, the Chinese Dementia Initiative will begin offering support groups for Mandarin-speakers and increasing communication geared specifically toward the Chinese community living within El Camino Hospital’s service area. The initiative is sponsored by the hospital district’s Community Benefit Plan, which has allotted $60,000 to be used for (among other things) advertisements in the Mandarin-language newspaper, The World Journal, and to fund support groups led by Mandarin-speaking facilitators. “There is a fairly large Chinese population in our area, and many of the older people in that population speak Mandarin,” said Cecile Currier, vice presi-

dent of professional corporate and community health services for ECH. The effort is a part of El Camino Hospital’s broader Chinese Health Initiative, launched in early 2011. One in eight people over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s, Currier said, and about 100,000 in the Bay Area have the disease. Breaking that number down into subgroups, about 25 percent are Asian, she said. Though Currier is not sure how many among that 25 percent are of Chinese decent, she does know that of all the Asian cultures living in the district’s service area, the Chinese population is the largest. “Teaching in Mandarin is really important,” Currier said, and not only because some of the at-risk Chinese seniors living in the area do not speak English. Even for people who English as a second language, it is much more comfortable if services are offered by someone who speaks their native language and understands their culture.

Dec. 25, 1919 – June 23, 2012

Although people from all over the world may find it difficult to confront mental illness, Currier said, the stigma surrounding Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia is “rather pronounced in Asian cultures.” “It’s not thought of so much as a biological disease,” she said. Rather, an afflicted individual may be considered “crazy.” Because of this, families may keep those suffering from dementia at home, when they could be getting valuable treatment. Currier said the money from the community fund is intended to help the Alzheimer’s Foundation get the word out. The funding is also to be used to provide guidance for caregivers, as well as to help family members learn how to help ailing parents and grandparents. More information can be found by visiting the Alzheimer’s Association website at alz.org, or calling the Mountain View headquarters of the Alzheimer’s Association’s local chapter at 962-8111.

Marie Mathews died Saturday, June 23, after a brief illness. She was 92 and had lived in Mountain View since 1955. Marie was born in Greece and immigrated with her mother to America through Ellis Island in 1923. She grew up in Manhattan and Brooklyn until she went to Children’s Village in upstate New York in the early 1930s. Later, she went to live with the Slawson family in White Plains as a mother’s helper. The Slawsons, Wally and Edna and their children Ann Louise and Jack, would become Marie’s lifelong family. During the war years, Marie worked in New York City until she joined the American Red Cross in 1945. She served throughout Western Europe and, after the war, in the Far East, where she met her future husband, Jim, then a US Army officer. She always looked back on her Red Cross days as the most exciting time of her life. After marriage, Marie worked as a homemaker, raised her two sons and held several part-time jobs in the Mountain View school system. Always very active, Marie made friends easily and was genuinely interested in anyone she met. Her life can be measured by these deep and abiding friendships, many of which extended 40 or more years. Marie is survived by her son, Jamie, of Irvine, CA; son, Bill, of Mountain View; and brother, Jack Slawson, of Virginia Beach, VA. Her husband, Jim, preceded her death in 2003. A memorial service for Marie will be held at Spangler’s Mortuary, 399 S. San Antonio Road in Los Altos, at 10:00 AM on July 21. Spanglers 650.948.6619

Five plan to run for MV Whisman board By Nick Veronin

T

he Mountain View Whisman School District is poised to hold its first contested election since 2004, as five locals have announced their plans to run for three open seats on the district’s board of trustees this November. Priscila Bogdanic, Peter Darrah, Bill Lambert, Steve Nelson and Jim Pollart have all said they intend to run for one of the seats to be vacated by trustees whose terms expire this fall. All three incumbents say they will not seek re-election. “Fiona (Walter), Ed (Bailey) and I wanted to let you know that all three of us are not planning to seek reelection,” Steve Olson, president of the MVWSD board, wrote in a July 6 email to the Voice. The period to file the necessary paperwork to run in local elections in Santa Clara County opens on July 15 and runs through August 10. Priscila Bogdanic With two children currently enrolled in Monta Loma Elementary School, the bilingual

Bogdanic has lived in Mountain View for more than 10 years and been involved with Monta Loma’s English Language Advisory Committee since her youngest began kindergarten in 2008. The position led her to get involved with a similar districtlevel committee a year later in 2009. Bogdanic, a stay-at-homemom, has been generally pleased with the direction the district has taken of late. She supported the $198 million school bond, Measure G, and said the trustees have done “amazing work” since she has been attending school board meetings — something she does as often as she can. If elected, Bogdanic said she would work to increase involvement of Hispanic families — a large group she believes to be underrepresented in PTAs around the district. She would start by increasing the amount of information that is pushed out to these families, who she believes simply don’t know enough about how to access their neighborhood schools. In addition to reaching out to MVWSD’s Spanish-speaking

community, Bogdanic said she would use what she has learned volunteering for Mountain Viewbased Bring Me A Book — a nonprofit focused on literacy issues — to help parents help their children make reading a regular part of their lives. “As long as we read to the children, all the windows and doors are open,” she said. Peter Darrah Darrah first moved to Mountain View with his family in 2002. The computer engineer at Advanced Micro Devices has two children in MVWSD schools, and his wife teaches at Landels Elementary School. He and his wife have been involved in the Landels community and he currently serves on the board of the Mountain View Education Foundation. As a supporter of Measure G, Darrah is interested in making sure the money collected for the bond is “spent wisely.” “One of my highest priorities as a board member would be to make sure the Measure G funds are spent appropriately,” Darrah wrote in an email to the<ctyp eface:Italic>Voice<ctypeface:>.

“The community has committed the funds to upgrade the current facilities, but it will take hard work to determine which projects to fund to ensure our schools are top-notch for generations to come.” Bill Lambert Lambert is a Bay Area native and decade-long Mountain View resident. A former chemist and material scientist with a doctorate in chemical physics, Lambert decided to go to law school during the telecommunications crash and now works as a patent attorney in Menlo Park. His daughter, who recently graduated from college, attended Mountain View’s public schools, including Monta Loma. He said he has become increasingly involved in the district since moving to Mountain View — attending MVWSD board meetings and writing a monthly digest piece for the League of Women Voters’ newsletter, The Voter. A “scientist at heart,” Lambert said he would work hard to push science, technology, math and engineering — STEM — in the district.

Additionally, Lambert said he would like to see better communication between the school district and City Hall. He would propose regular meetings between the trustees and city officials to increase communication between the two agencies — perhaps one every other month, since, he acknowledges, “everybody is really busy.” Steve Nelson Three of Nelson’s children have attended Bubb and Graham over a 16-year period. His youngest is currently enrolled in the local middle school. He is a regular at MVWSD board meetings and often offers his comments. Of late, Nelson has taken issue with the district board and administration. Chief among his complaints are that there was not adequate planning and community input leading up to the Measure G vote. “I didn’t like the plan and I didn’t like the poor community input and communications,” he said. As a strong supporter of the district, he said he would have endorsed a similar plan, had See WHISMAN BOARD, page 11

the district tightened up its list of projects to be paid for by the bond, and if district administrators had put together a panel of community members to decide what those projects ought to be. According to the long-time Mountain View resident, the district has not done a sufficient job communicating with the public, and he said if he were elected he would make increasing community involvement and communication a priority by pushing the district to adopt a system of public outreach similar to that of the Mountain View City Council. Since 2006, Nelson has been a substitute teacher in the district and has taught at all of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have classroom-level experience with all the school sites in the district,â&#x20AC;? he said. Jim Pollart Pollart has lived in town for about 15 years, has one daughter at Mountain View High School and another at Bubb Elementary School. He said he has been involved with the district for approximately 10 years

feel blessed to have worked with thoughtful and committed team of trustees and district administrators.â&#x20AC;? When reached by phone, Olson said he is anticipating an interesting election, and that he hopes the board will benefit from â&#x20AC;&#x153;fresh perspectivesâ&#x20AC;? in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the district,â&#x20AC;? he said, recalling past contested trustee seats resulted in public debates that brought many district issues to the fore of public discourse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember attending debates between school board candidates in previous elections,â&#x20AC;? Olson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great thing for the community, I thought, to have that kind of dialogue.â&#x20AC;? All five of the candidates have lived in Mountain View for 10 years or more and have children that are attending or have attended district schools. Bogdanic, Darrah, Lambert and Pollart all supported Measure G, the $198 million bond approved by voters in June. Nelson did not support Measure G. Although he has frequently advocated spending more money on local schools, he

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; working as a member of the school site council for Graham Middle School and coordinating the Share Shoreline group, which ultimately led to millions of dollars being funneled into MVWSD and the high school district. Pollart was also a supporter of Measure G, and served as the fund raising chair for the campaign in support of the bond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just found that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m interested in education issues,â&#x20AC;? said Pollart, vice president of land acquisition and forward planning at Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien Homes in Foster City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that educating our kids is the single most important investment we can make to improve our community.â&#x20AC;? In Pollartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion, the most important factor governing the success of a given school is the quality of the teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if somebody is asking what specifically I will do on the board, I would say I will focus on making sure that there are quality teachers in our schools,â&#x20AC;? he said. Pollart said he is also interested creating a system of benchmarks, so the district can easily compare itself to other comparable districts, and thus â&#x20AC;&#x153;understand where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re strong and where we need to improve.â&#x20AC;? V

repeatedly criticized the board for not doing enough to gather community input in the lead up to the Measure G election and headed up an anti-Measure G campaign in an effort to send the bond back to the drawing board. Olson couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on the reasons his colleagues â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Walter and Bailey â&#x20AC;&#x201D; had for deciding not to run again. Speaking for himself, though, the board president said he would like to dedicate more time to his two young children and his mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was happy to step up and serve,â&#x20AC;? he said, but added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge, I have to say. I have a full time job.â&#x20AC;? Olson is leaving the district after serving for four years. He was elected in 2008 to the seat, which had been left by Gloria Higgins. Walter is coming to the end of her second four-year term in November. Olson said she is currently on vacation, and she could not be reached for comment. Bailey has served on the board for about five years. He was first appointed to his seat about a year before running for reelection unopposed in November 2008. He could not be reached for comment.

Council members may pass a ban on new fast food restaurants that don’t serve a certain amount of healthy foods, said Mayor Mike Kasperzak at a Community Health Forum in September. But such policies seem “a few years away,” Kasperzak said. A restaurant in Fairfield is

t may not look quite like what voters envisioned when they approved Proposition 1A in 2008, but despite business plans that first predicted costs near $100 billion and then subsided to $68 billion, the state’s high-speed rail project cruised past endless hurdles to win a crucial vote in the state Senate last week. The decision went down to the wire, with Sen. Joe Simitian shocking most of his colleagues by voting “no” at the 11th hour on a project that he has shepherded through the legislative process for more than four years. The two other Peninsula legislators, Assembly members Jerry Hill and Rich Gordon, were on the prevailing side that passed SB1029 earlier in the week on a mostly party-line vote. In the Senate, no Republicans supported the project, and Simitian, who is termed out at the end of this year, joined several other Democrats in voting no, falling one vote short of stopping the train in its tracks. Simitian said he is convinced that without the promise of more federal or private funding down the road, the state could be left to foot the bill for nearly the entire project. Hill, who is running against former Mountain View Mayor Sally Lieber for Simitian’s seat, has a distinctly different take on the the project. Hill said he made sure the nearly $1 billion in local improvements that sweetened the bill for many legislators can stand on their own, even if a high-speed rail line is never completed. By passing the legislation before a deadline imposed by the federal government, the project will receive $3.3 billion in federal funds and $2.3 billion in state funds to build 130 miles of conventional (not electric) passenger train track between Madera and Bakersfield in the Central Valley. The bill also provides or frees up some $1 billion each for local projects in Northern and Southern California, which was a major factor in convincing many legislators, including Hill and Gordon, to support the bill. Unlike Simitian, Hill found a lot to like in the bill. He gave the Voice three key reasons for supporting the much-debated rail line: ■ A guarantee from the rail authority that it would stick to its word to build only a two-track, rather than four-track, system on the Peninsula. Hill said the stipulation means that there will be no land taken beyond the Caltrain right of way, including earlier projections that NLETTERS VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE ON NEW TRAIL For years I’ve enjoyed the Stevens Creek Trail from old downtown to the Bay. Over the weekend I traveled the newer part of the trail past El Camino Real and over the recently opened bridge to Heatherstone. What a wonderful trail. I was impressed with the width of the trail, the plentiful benches (especially at the beautiful sitting area near the Sleeper Avenue entrance), the interpretive signs and the people. All ages were on the trail, from toddlers with training wheels to teenagers and grandparents. People looked happy and said, “Hello,” giving me a real sense of civic pride. Thank you to the City of Mountain View, to the Friends of Stevens Creek Trail, and to everyone involved in envisioning this wonderful trail and

making it become a reality. Karen DeMello Windmill Park Lane

tracks might infringe on Mountain View’s light rail line and Alma Street in Palo Alto. ■ A key part of the bill provides $705 million for Caltrain electrification, a goal the often-struggling commuter train service has had for years. Hill said with electric trains, Caltrain ridership could increase from 45,000 to 70,000 per day, a tremendous boost for Mountain View-bound commuters. With quicker starting and stopping ability, electric trains can stop more often for passengers and still make the San Jose to San Francisco run in one hour or less. Altogether, Northern California will receive $1 billion for local improvements, Hill said, and a similar amount will go to Southern California. ■ Hill said he made sure that all improvements could stand on their own if the full project is never completed. For example, he said, electrification will help Caltrain now, and also will be part of the groundwork for powering high-speed trains if and when they arrive, probably not until 2030 or 2035. Simitian’s concern is much more immediate — that Governor Brown’s ballot initiative to raise the income tax on wealthy Californians and impose a small sale tax might not pass in November due to a backlash from voters angry that the Legislature passed such an expensive high-speed rail project. And in his speech on the Senate floor, he also said he still sees trouble in the numerous negative reviews of the project’s business plans and has doubts about the rail authority’s leadership, which has several major vacancies and a CEO who has been on the job less than a month. For Mountain View, the good news in the bill is that work can begin relatively soon on electrification, which will not require grade separations, at least until true high-speed trains arrive. With faster trains, commuters will have more choices to reach the city. And there will be no more pollution from diesel engines when electric locomotives take over. And although many of the bill’s supporters trumpeted the thousands of jobs that will be created, Mountain View isn’t likely to see a huge boost in employment, but residents and commuters will enjoy vastly improved and pollution-free train service, certainly a worthwhile achievement. sphere” of the Cuesta Annex is going to be severely affected after the City Council authorizes a 4-acre flood ditch. What about the trees that will be lost here? What about the wildlife that will be displaced here? What about the mountain views that will no longer be viewable?

And, the council doesn’t have to spend $3 million to save it. They can just say no to the water district and start listening to the over 500 local residents who want to preserve the Cuesta Annex. Cynthia Riordan Saratoga

Salty water may be the silent killer of trees, but the Mountain View City Council is the largest killer of trees in the city. The council ‘s sudden concern for the redwood trees in Mountain View and Palo Alto is out of character and ironic. Mayor Kasperzak said this about the redwoods they intend to save: “The bigger trees are part of the heart and nature of North Bayshore. Losing those trees would be devastating for the atmosphere of the entire area.” So what about the heart and nature of Mountain View itself, which is embodied in the historic Cuesta Annex?

act: There is no such thing as a mulberry bush. Don’t believe it? Ask Kevin Lynch of metroMulberry, Palo Alto’s local mulberry grower. Mulberries actually grow on trees. Very large trees. And the berries boast a different kind of sweetness than any other. Not quite as strong or flavorful as a blackberry and not quite as watery or mild as a blueberry. Kevin’s mulberries are as delicious as they are rare, and he and his family grow them in their own backyard, sans fertilizer or pesticides. The Lynches exude a different kind of sweetness, too. They have lived in Palo Alto for nine years, turning what Kevin called a “rundown piece of junk” house into a lush utopia. The same year they moved, they planted their first mulberry tree out front. Since then, they have planted upwards of 20 more in their backyard, plus plums, apples, blackberries, lemons, black raspberries, apricots and others. More recently, Kevin created metroMulberry, selling fresh mulberries and other home-

grown fruits at the downtown Palo Alto farmers market and to local restaurants, such as Quattro at the Four Seasons Hotel in East Palo Alto and Pampas in Palo Alto. Kevin, a seventh-grade science teacher, builds and grows everything himself. From the rows of mulberry trees to the outdoor pizza oven to the family’s current kitchen remodel, Kevin is completely hands-on. His wife, Monica, is also a teacher, and their two sons — Osmanthus (“Osi” for short), 10, and Halo, 9, seem precocious, relishing the attention their family’s micro-farm has brought them. During a recent visit, Osi itched to show off his berry knowledge, which was undeniably impressive. He and his brother put together a plate displaying each kind of berry that he and his family grow, noting the particulars of each type. “These are unusually sweet this time,” Osi said, pointing to the Illinois Everbearing Mulberries, which were laid out next to the variety of other fruits he and his brother had gathered. Also on display were frozen mulberries drizzled in homemade honey and black

Ingredients: Ice 5 to 10 mulberries 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon sugar 1 scant pinch of salt 1 shot of triple sec 2 shots vodka and just enough water to help it all move around Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously to break up the berries for flavor and color. Strain out into each glass, then top with a shot or two of bubbly water. Garnish with a fresh mulberry in each glass. Leave out the triple sec and vodka to make a non-alcoholic version. Info: Recipe from metroMulberry’s Facebook page. For more information about the company, go to metromulberries.com.

raspberries. (Osi was careful to point out that black raspberries are nothing like blackberries). Picking mulberries for the Lynches seems as much a part of their lives as sleeping or breathing. Even their rapport surrounding the towering plants is breezy and nonchalant. “Do you have a mulberry stain on you?” Kevin asked his wife as they stood under one of five rows of mulberry trees in their yard. “Yeah,” she said, looking down at her arm and giving a contagious smile. “Awesome,” Kevin said with a chuckle. Mulberry-juice stains are just a part of being backyard berry growers. Kevin and his family spend hours “tickling” their mulberries down from

the branches. “They are like the prodigal son,” Kevin said about each mulberry. “Every time one drops, I get upset.” Monica nodded her head, saying she sometimes goes digging for fallen berries. “It’s such a tender business,” she said, placing a fresh mulberry into her picking bucket. The tenderness of mulberries is what makes them impossible to find at supermarkets, Kevin said. The berries practically melt in your mouth as you eat them, as if they were more juice than fruit. The Lynches’ mulberries can be purchased at the farmers market every Saturday in downtown Palo Alto, though they sell out early every week. “I never have enough to sell,” Continued on next page

SAVAGES ---1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Oliver Stone, bless ‘im, still believes in red-meat cinema. The proof is in “Savages,” a hard-R crime drama that never treats the audience as juvenile. A veteran of foreign wars named Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and his business partner and best friend Ben (Aaron Johnson) have a partnership brings to mind the American entrepreneurship of Ben and Jerry. The boutique product they export from Laguna Beach isn’t gourmet ice cream but gourmet pot. Ben and Chon face a hostile takeover by a Mexican cartel, but when the duo makes other plans, the cartel takes their surfer girl “O” (Blake Lively) hostage, setting off a war of wills. Salma Hayek’s Elena, the cruel mistress of the cartel, doesn’t suffer fools, but she’s also a devoted, frustrated mother. Benicio Del Toro plays her top goon, Lado, both psychotic and unexpectedly sensitive. John Travolta is the slick, corrupt DEA agent ever looking out for number one. All three could be Oscar front-runners: They’re that good, and even more delicious when they mix it up in duets. The menage a trois at the heart of the film emblematizes American life: Naive consumer O is in bed with both damaged-goods muscle Chon and Buddhist businessman Ben, but they’ll never want her as much as they want, need and envy each other. There’s something beautiful and sad about their codependency. Rated R for strong violence, graphic sexuality, nudity, drug use and language. Two hours, 10 minutes.— P.C.

THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN ---

(Century 16, Century 20) Viewers will inevitably compare “The Amazing Spider-Man,” to Sam Raimi’s 2002 effort, and it could be argued that the two are on equal footing. In this comic book movie reboot, Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) is highschool outcast Peter Parker, and Peter’s love interest this time around is Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Peter’s parents left him in the care of his uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and aunt May (Sally Field) when he was a boy, and he still puzzles over their sudden departure. Peter discovers his father had been working with one-armed scientist Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), and visits Connors at research-and-development company OsCorp. A genetically altered spider bites Peter, who starts exhibiting enhanced strength and heightened reflexes. He soon dubs himself Spider-Man, and takes to swinging over the city. The visual effects in “Amazing” are superior (including some breathtaking scenes from Spider-Man’s P.O.V.) and its villain, the Lizard, is one of the genre’s most frightening. The battle scenes between Spider-Man and the Lizard are exceptional. Garfield is a terrific actor — better than Maguire — and Stone is a welcome upgrade over the dour Kirsten Dunst. Both Field and Leary are brilliantly cast. Both familiar and fresh, it’s a spectacle with enough thrills and humor to satisfy most fans. Rated PG-13 for action and violence.

TRUST, DATED 08/17/2006. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by ROBERT C ADAM AND FELICIA ADAM HUSBAND AND WIFE, dated 08/17/2006 and recorded 8/31/2006, as Instrument No. 19086778, in Book , Page , of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Santa Clara County, State of California, will sell on 07/24/2012 at 10:00AM, At the Market Street entrance to the Superior Courthouse, 190 North Market Street , San Jose, Santa Clara County, CA at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 2580 WESTFORD WAY, MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, 94040. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein.The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $1,209,019.04. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state.Said sale will be made, in an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;AS ISâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust

with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. If required by the provisions of section 2923.5 of the California Civil Code, the declaration from the mortgagee, beneficiary or authorized agent is attached to the Notice of Trustee's Sale duly recorded with the appropriate County Recorder's Office. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as

a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco. com, using the file number assigned to this case 12-0020177. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
