or some, finding dirt caked on the side of a bell pepper or nestled in between the leaves of a head of lettuce might be an indication that it’s time to consider switching grocers. But for foodies on the hunt for fresh ingredients, it can be a sign that the greens come from local family farmers more concerned with growing things the old fashioned

way than procuring pristine (and perhaps pesticide-laden) produce. If you ascribe to the latter interpretation, it will be refreshing to discover that the heirloom tomatoes and red onions on sale at Las Hermanas’ produce stand may a bit dusty and not as uniformly shaped as one might find at a Safeway.

tion with El Camino Hospital. According to hospital spokeswoman Chris Ernst, El Camino is sponsoring the event in an effort to improve the eating habits of both its employees and the community it serves. “As we look to the future, a lot of our focus will be on health and wellness,” she said. “A fun foundation of that is nutrition.” The inaugural event drew more than 500 people, Ernst

said, and featured a musician, local clothing makers, a couple of local farmers, and some hot food options. There were also informational booths on hospital programs and services, and an instructional booth on CPR. Though the market’s primary focus may be promoting healthy lifestyles, there were some salty and greasy options offered as well. I sampled a cheese steak sandwich (from

Big Bite), complete with fried onions and bell peppers, along with a spicy lamb gyro (from Falafel Fresh) topped with mixed veggies and Greek yogurt. Both lunches were fried up as I watched, and both were delicious. After lunch I stopped to talk to Gloria Chavez of Las Hermanas. Chavez said she runs the 60-acre farm with the help of her four sisters and a handful of other relatives in rural Hollister. Though the sisters have owned the farm for five years, this is their first year working the farmers market circuit. The Chavez sisters grow watermelon, cantaloupe, lettuce, squash, heirloom tomatoes, kale, celery, broccoli, jalapenos, onions and cabbage, among many other vegetables. All their produce is organic, she said. Chavez advocates eating fresh food, saying that she has lost weight and feels healthier since she began eating her own produce almost exclusively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the grocery store, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how long theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kept the produce in a fridge,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re guaranteed fresh produce.â&#x20AC;? The skeptic inside me is willing to acknowledge that the placebo effect could have played a role in my judgment of the head of romaine lettuce,

three heirloom tomatoes and one green bell pepper that I bought from Chavez for $3.50. However, I must say that the greens were fresh and crispy and the tomatoes extra sweet and succulent. If the market suffers from any major weakness, it is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bit green behind the ears. A couple of shoppers noted that the market seemed small. Ernst said the promising first-day turnout and the enthusiasm she observed in the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patrons left her optimistic that the event will continue to grow. El Camino officials have plans to expand the market by bringing in more farmers, food trucks and other local merchants in the weeks to come, she said. The new market a lso increases the accessibility of fresh fruits and vegetables for local low- and fixed-income residents. The market accepts EBT (electronic benefit transfer) cards, so people on state assistance can purchase produce from the farmers, who often only accept cash at other farmers markets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even those who are on support should be able to have fresh produce,â&#x20AC;? Ernst said. The location of the new farmers market may prove easier to access for those residents of Mountain Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more southerly neighborhoods â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as Blossom

-Skip it --Some redeeming qualities ---A good bet ----Outstanding


(Aquarius) The “having it all” lifestyle of the CEO played by Richard Gere in “Arbitrage” may not be very relatable, but his nightmare scenario of losing it all should ring a bell. Gere’s smugly successful Robert Miller holds court, all smiles, at the office and at home. But he becomes shaken when facing involuntary manslaughter charges after crashing his luxury sedan. He ropes in Jimmy Grant, a young black man (Nate Parker) to assist him in fleeing the scene of the crime. “Arbitrage” is at its most interesting when exploring the choices facing Miller and Grant when the police identify the younger man and begin turning the screws on him. Mostly unspoken, but loud and clear as subtext, are the matters of race and white privilege. At its essence, the film is a potboiler, heating up with tension as Miller finds his lies catching up with him. Before the film arrives at its foregone conclusion, the director succeeds in giving his thriller enough thematic texture to set it apart, and his star a showcase that reminds us of Gere’s ability. Playing a character that’s almost entirely unsympathetic, Gere demonstrates the charm that’s allowed Miller to accumulate his wealth and status, and the abyss-staring his showmanship conceals. Rated R for language, violent images and drug use. One hour, 48 minutes. — P.C.

■ Mountain View Voice ■ ■ October 12, 2012


(Century 16, Century 20) By reaching back into his own past and movie history, the recently fumbly Tim Burton has gotten a grip with “Frankenweenie.” Expanded by screenwriter John August from Burton’s 1984 live-action short of the same name, the stop-motionanimated “Frankenweenie” finds the filmmaker in fine fettle. The story concerns young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan), reimagined as a child of suburbia. These set-in-their-ways ‘burbs are no place for Victor, a curious child who takes to his science class in a spirit of experimentation. Science comes in handy when Victor’s beloved dog Sparky dies, necessitating electrical resuscitation. Flipping the cautionary themes of Mary Shelley’s source material, “Frankenweenie” plays out as a primarily pro-science parable. August establishes a conflict between the narrow-minded status quo and the progressive attitude represented by Victor’s science teacher Mr. Rzykruski (a terrific Martin Landau), who addresses the school’s parents as “ignorant,” and tells Victor, “They like what science gives them, but not the questions, no.” Parents shouldn’t take offense (Victor’s parents are as loving as they are clueless). If anything, it’s cat lovers who will be miffed, given the weirdness of local feline Mr. Whiskers. “Frankenweenie” boasts Burton’s distinctive design work, and creatively eager stop-motion work. Of course there’s candy, a celebration of cinema, and a heartfelt, central “boy and his dog” story, but it’s a pleasant surprise that the picture also goes out of its way to encourage free-thinking square pegs to avoid round holes. Rated PG for thematic elements, scary images and action. One hour, 27 minutes. — P.C.

(Century 16, Century 20) Of all the projects Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been involved with, “Looper” may well be the one to his launch into superstardom. The picture takes place in the year 2044, 30 years before the invention of time travel. Sadly the mob seems to have a stranglehold on the advanced technology, using time travel to send people back to the year 2044 for termination by highly paid Loopers like Joe (Gordon-Levitt). Occasionally the mob will send back the older version of the Loopers themselves to “close the loop,” When Joe’s older self (Bruce Willis) appears in the year 2044 and young Joe can’t pull the trigger, older Joe escapes. The episode sets off a hunt-and-chase that ropes in brassy farmer Sara (Emily Blunt) and her young son Cid (Pierce Gagnon in a spotlightstealing performance). Director Rian Johnson (“Brick”) demonstrates a deft touch and infuses “Looper” with subtleties and soulful moments. Gordon-Levitt’s performance is impressive on many levels. He nails Willis’ mannerisms, so it’s easy to believe the two are versions of the same person. Gordon-Levitt also showcases his depth by demonstrating both toughness and compassion. Blunt is also remarkably good as a protective mother, and youngster Gagnon is a revelation. The visual effects underwhelm at times (particularly in scenes involving hovering motorbikes), but the story doesn’t suffer. Ultimately, “Looper” is a thoughtful genre-bender that brings science-fiction, action and mystery together in one tight package. Rated R for strong violence, drug content, sexuality/nudity and language. 1 hour, 59 minutes.— T.H.

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER --(Century 16, Century 20) In “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” novelist Stephen Chbosky directs a revealing nature film based on his own semi-autobiographical book. Witness specimen Charlie (Logan Lerman) — seen here entering, for the first time, the mating grounds of Mill Grove High School outside Pittsburgh in the early ‘90s — little understanding the pull that will lead him to join a pack, gravitate to his cool English teacher, fall for an unavailable female of the species, make mix tapes, have late-night “deep thought” epiphanies, and participate in ancient teenage rituals involving drugs, alcohol and/or “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Poor Charlie is painfully shy, highly sensitive to the pain in everyone around him, and instinctively inclined to lick the wounds of earlier tangles with predators. He is accepted by the impulsive seniors of the pack: attractive potential mate Sam (Emma Watson) and gay Patrick (Ezra Miller), the latter performing that rare and complex dance of flamboyance, deception, confusion, fear and desire like a junior Oscar Wilde. Sam has imprinted upon a “bad boy,” but she recognizes a fellow survivor in the cub and, with Patrick, gives Charlie enough attention and purpose to survive. See how Charlie nuzzles under the wings of the older teenagers. One cannot blame our sentimental filmmaker or even you, gentle viewer, for seeing in these younglings something of ourselves. Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content and a fight; all involving teens. One hour, 43 minutes.— P.C.


(Century 16, Century 20) “Pitch Perfect” is a big-screen boon for the “Glee” crowd, and fans of last year’s breakthrough hit “Bridesmaids” will appreciate a similar feminine energy in “Pitch.” Barden University’s all-female a cappella group the Bellas blew its shot at winning the state championship when lead singer Aubrey (Anna Camp) lost her lunch on stage. Enter Beca (Anna Kendrick), a fiercely independent freshman who has more experience creating musical “mash-ups” on her laptop computer than singing a cappella, who joins the group. Big props to director Jason Moore for maintaining an upbeat atmosphere and getting the most from his talented cast. Kendrick is especially good, demonstrating both comedic and dramatic skills, and Rebel Wilson virtually steals the show with her hilarious portrayal. There is certain predictability to the plot, and Beca’s romantic story occasionally feels strained. Still, the quirky characters and clever dialogue help absolve other cinematic sins. As 2012 rolls on, “Pitch Perfect” takes the baton as the feel-good movie of the year. Rated PG-13 for sexual material, language and drug references. 1 hour, 52 minutes.— T.H.

TAKEN 2 -1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Here’s a test: How can you identify the villain in “Taken 2,” the sequel to Liam Neeson’s surprisehit 2008 action thriller? Well, there’s a suspicious-looking character who tells Liam Neeson’s retired CIA operative Bryan Mills, “Don’t play the hero with me.” What is this guy, un-American? Oh yeah, that too: crime lord Murad Hoxha is Albanian, and played by Rade Serbedzija, pigeonholed as the go-to Euro-baddie. Also there’s the part about spilling Mills’ blood on the same ground as Hoxha’s son, killed by Mills in “Taken.” “Very funny,” you sneer. “Obviously, Hoxha is the villain.” But with the screenplay’s half-serious irony — the only interesting area into which “Taken 2” dizzily staggers — the villain could just as well be Mills. The “Taken” movies define Mills by the intersection of his total commitment to family and his ultra-competence as a man of action. He terminates with extreme prejudice, but only in defense of self and family, so it’s all good. Turn the story 180 degrees, though, and Hoxha acts not too dissimilar to Mills. Enraged that a foreigner would blithely kill “sons and grandsons, fathers and husbands,” Hoxha pursues his own justice. Since Mills offers an invite to his ex (Famke Janssen) and their daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) to join him on a business trip to Istanbul, Hoxha gets a shot at teaching the American that turnabout is fair play. As written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen and directed by Olivier Megaton, “Taken 2” underlines the fact that the American family lives in the lap of luxury. But despite light teasing about blinkered American entitlement, this movie has as much intellectual value as a turnip. Obviously, no one goes to “Taken 2” for an allegory of international relations. But the ludicrous plot devices that allow Mills to go from point A to point Z insult the intelligence of the character and the audience. Rated PG-13 for violence and action, and some sensuality. One hour, 31 minutes. — P.C.

I’ve sold more homes in Palo Alto over the last 10 years, than any other realtor. I am a long way from being a billionaire. I faced many challenges when I came here, I know many people here in our communities are struggling to overcome hurdles. I am putting $50,000 into a local educational fund to open doors for talented individuals in our community. 這是一則充滿感激的啟事。   今天的這則啟事,我用英文、 中文在主流媒體上刋登,是幾經考 量的;我感謝美國社會讓我們能完 全的融入,以無私包容的胸襟給予 我們公平競爭的環境;在這裡,每 個人可以依憑著自己的努力,成長 及茁壯。   三十餘年前一個窮留學生隻身 來到美國,語言、環境、生存…, 每一項都是艱辛和挑戰;我一步一 步的都走過來了,我也看到很多和 我相似背景的同胞,也度過了新移

民困窘過程,我敬佩您們也感謝您 們。   李文向每一位社區的朋友報 告,在競爭很激烈的房地產行業, 李文已經佔有了一席之地; 1. 排名在全美國1%的房地產經紀 人行列。 2. 我們公司的80,000多名經紀人 中,我是第三名。 3. 最近十年的統計:李文是全Palo Alto買賣成交最多的房地產經紀 人。 這是很傲人的成績及榮耀;是我們

社區恩賜給我的。   我將以很虔敬的心,回饋我們 的社區,贊助我們社區的教育經費 $50,000-元;所以如此,我自許 是一個讀書人;也是希望能「拋磚 引玉」,讓更多有能力的人共襄盛 舉,幫助我們社區的教育事業。   我要說:我以我是一位美國人 為榮、我以我是一位華裔為榮、我 以我是一位留學生為榮;我以我是 一位移民而慶幸、我更為我們整個 社區的包容及偉大而驕傲。

A little over 30 years ago I immigrated to the Bay Area from Asia. I came alone to the United States as a student. Expenses and restrictions on work were challenges I had to face. For me, education provided the knowledge and credibility to succeed selling real estate. I believe many of the struggling people in our communities will use education to open the door to a better life.

Selling homes is a fiercely competitive business. Success depends upon skill, hard work, and upon the open minds of the people in our communities. I’m donating $50,000 this year to start a scholarship for our communities. I thank everyone who’s making our community so wonderful. Although I’ve sold more homes in Palo Alto over the last 10 years than

any other realtor and I’m the top 3 agent nationwide at Keller Williams, $50,000 is a large amount of money to me. By helping fund education, I want to help struggling families in our wonderful community. I hope others will also take money and time from their business and add to the open hearts and open minds of our wonderful community.
