Pumar sentenced to one year in jail DRIVER GUILTY OF KILLING PEDESTRIAN WAITING FOR BUS By Nick Veronin


atthew Pumar, the driver who hit and killed a Mountain View man last summer, was sentenced to one year in county jail and three years probation. Judge Allison Danner sentenced Pumar on Oct. 21 in Santa Clara County Superior Court. He was convicted of vehicular manslaughter with gross negli-

gence on Sept. 12 in the death of William Ware. Ware was killed on June 21, 2012, after Pumar sped Matthew Pumar through a red light and lost control of his car, which ran up on the sidewalk and careened into the 50-year-old Mountain

View resident, who was waiting for a bus in the 1800 block of California Street. Pumar, also a Mountain View resident, remained on the scene after the crash and was cooperative with investigators. He eventually pleaded not guilty to the charge of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence. However, the jury

oogle is known for operating the largest private transit system in the world, shuttling thousands of employees to and from Mountain View on big, white buses that are now a symbol of the company’s dominant role in Silicon Valley. But soon Google employees may share their buses with employees of other companies — and members of the public. On Oct. 24, (after the Voice goes to press) Google is expected to join Intuit, Samsung and two developers for the first meeting of the Mountain View Transportation Management Association, a City Council-created requirement of one new office development in Mountain View. The agency will collectively run shuttles for major employers in the city, and run a new publicly accessible route between corporate campuses and downtown. Aside from keeping solo car drivers off the road, the association’s effectiveness will be in reducing the number of nearly

empty employee shuttles in town, while potentially coordinating other efforts to reduce car trips. Possibilities include paying for a new shared parking garage that keeps North Bayshore employees from driving on an increasingly gridlocked Shoreline Boulevard, or new bikeshare facilities. Such measures will be increasingly important as the city is now requiring “mode share” targets for new offices — on Tuesday, Intuit promised to the City Council that only 45 percent of its employees would drive alone to a new campus at 2600 Marine Way. Reduced traffic isn’t the only way the public will benefit. The transportation management association (TMA) is required by the city to run a shuttle service to and from downtown that is available to the public. “We will create a publicly accessible shuttle that will link See GOOGLE, page 8

District’s code of conduct rules questioned By Nick Veronin


prominent First Amendment lawyer and journalist had some choice words concerning a number of the rules outlined in the Mountain View Whisman School District’s


trustee code of conduct. “A lot of those policies are stupid,” said Peter Scheer, executive director of the First Amendment Coalition. Scheer, who has written for a number of prominent publications and often appears on news

programs as an expert on free speech issues, was referring to a pair of rules which call upon board members to refrain from speaking ill of the board or district officials, even when they See BOARD BYLAWS, page 9

PRESCRIPTION DRUG DISPOSAL The Mountain View Fire Department will be collecting unwanted prescription medications for disposal this Saturday, Oct. 26. Officials with the fire department will be collecting the medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fire and police department administration building, located at 1000 Villa St. The collection is part of a nationwide effort, organized by local municipalities in coordination with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Throwing prescription drugs in the trash or flushing them down the toilet can result in those pharmaceutical agents making their way into the water supply and adversely affecting wildlife, according to Carrie Sandhal, a water environment specialist with the fire department. The fire department regularly holds prescription drug disposal events to properly destroy them.

THRICE BURGLARIZED A Mountain View woman’s apartment was burglarized three times in a three-week span, according to police. The woman, who lives on the 200 block of Church Street, reported that she fell prey to burglars on Sept. 24, Oct. 5 and once again on Oct. 15, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department. During the first burglary, the woman told police she went out to walk her dog at about 2 p.m. on Sept. 24. When she returned at 3 p.m. she didn’t immediately notice anything. But the next day she received a fraud alert from her credit card company. She then looked for her wallet and found that it was missing. Then, on Oct. 5, she left the apartment at noon and came back at 4 p.m. to discover that her iPad, Macbook Pro and a necklace with an oval ruby were missing. In both instances the woman said that she had left entryways into her apartment open or unlocked. The third incident occurred on Oct. 15, according to Jaeger. On that day, she left her apartment at about 10:45 a.m. and returned at noon to find that her Macbook Air had been stolen. She told police she believes the burglar got in through her bedroom window.

Gamers play around the clock for a good cause HACKER DOJO HOSTS MARATHON GAMES TO RAISE FUNDS FOR KIDS IN HOSPITALS By Daniel DeBolt



Brendan Mauro, second from left, explains his “Extrasolar” to fellow gamers participating in Indie Games for Good at the Hacker Dojo on Oct. 18.

ast week a room inside Mountain View’s Hacker Dojo was turned into the site of the third annual “Indie Games For Good,” a marathon of independent video game playing that raises money for games and toys for kids in hospitals. A group of gamers known as “Cloudboat Armada” put a team of over 20 gamers to work in shifts around the clock, playing for 89 hours straight and raising $10,380 for the Child’s Play, a group which provides games and toys to children to make their stays more enjoyable in over 70

hospitals around the world. The event was broadcast live online from the Dojo. Over 50 independent video game developers were lined up to come and be interviewed during the event every hour between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. for several days.

Hurdles remain as LASD, Bullis pursue joint bond YEARS OF LEGAL BATTLES HAVE WORN DOWN TRUST OF BCS OFFICIALS By Nick Veronin


os Altos School District and Bullis Charter School appear to be as close as they’ve ever been to compromise. However, comments made by district and charter officials and a recent exchange of open letters make it clear that there is still a long way to go. The two organizations are planning to meet on Oct. 30 to discuss the possibility of working together on a school bond measure that would build two new schools — one which

would become a permanent site for Bullis and another for an as-yet-unnamed LASD school. Yet, while officials with BCS have expressed tentative support for the idea, they have also expressed significant reservations over the proposal. John Phelps, a charter school board member, said he has wondered whether the district isn’t simply setting up the bond to fail as part of some elaborate straw man scheme. Phelps said his misgivings are informed by a number of things — including the district’s history of taking

his school to court over issues he considers either trivial or made up, and because of the way the district has been framing the bond. Phelps and fellow BCS board member Joe Hurd, said they are concerned with the way the bond is being presented to the public. According to Hurd, some are already referring to the proposed bond as a “Bullis bond,” which he said gives the impression that the initiative is being put forward solely for the benefit of the charter school. Given that the community is deeply divided



s the City Council discusses the possibility of turning Latham Street into a bike boulevard, city staff denied a permit for what was to be the fourth annual Latham Street Halloween block party on Sunday afternoon, apparently over concerns about blocking car traffic down the residential street. Organizer Jennifer Sumant said she has organized the event with other residents of the 1300 block

of Latham Street for three years, and “they’ve always permitted it in the past.” The stretch of single family residences just north of Shoreline Boulevard, between Palo Alto and Mountain View avenues, won’t have its usual tables set up in the street with food, games and crafts for kids milling around in costume — an event “well-supported by everyone on the block,” Sumant said. Public works director Mike Fuller explained that the city’s traffic engineer denied the permit.

“Latham is residential collector street with 2,000 cars or so per day on it. We thought it would be disruptive to traffic flow,” he said. Sumant says the ordeal has caused her neighbors to question the need to allow so much traffic on Latham street. Having 2,000 cars a day “is not justified by the amount of residents in the neighborhood, yet takes priority over the well-being of the community,” Sumant said. “The City Council is saying that the city priorities this year are for

over BCS, presenting the bond this way will only serve to ensure that it does not get the support it needs to pass. “This is not about building a brand-new, shiny school just for Bullis,” Hurd said. “This is about making the pie bigger for everyone.” The way Hurd sees it, Bullis Charter School has always been a part of the district. As a charter school organized within LASD’s boundaries and drawing mostly on children from within the district, Hurd said Bullis has been unfairly painted as an outsider by

those who oppose its existence. Some of Hurd and Phelp’s reservations were reflected in a recent open letter from the charter school to LASD. In the Oct. 10 letter, Bullis outlined its position on the bond. The letter, signed by BCS board chair Ken Moore, declared that the charter school sees the proposed bond as a possible road to acceptable compromise. However, the letter continued, “BCS does not seek to be the major beneficiary of a new

non-car transit,” Sumant said in an email, referring to the council’s goal this year to focus on pedestrian and bicycle mobility. “In reality our city codes — including the codes for block parties — are written to prioritize cars.” Meanwhile, City Council members made comments at an Oct. 15 meeting about creating a bike and pedestrian boulevard on Latham as an alternative to potentially dangerous bike lanes on El Camino Real. “My preference would be bike boulevards parallel to El Camino Real,” said council member Ronit Bryant. Since the permit was rejected, Sumant says she’s heard from neighbors, “Why don’t we get a

bike boulevard?” In Palo Alto, bike boulevards run on streets parallel to El Camino Real. They include barriers that would prevent cutthrough traffic like those 2,000 cars cutting down Latham, but allow bicyclists and pedestrians through. It is reportedly a hit with those who live along such streets, as car traffic is reduced dramatically. Council members declined to comment on the block party permit, but member Chris Clark said he didn’t mean to get Latham Steet residents’ hopes up with his comments on Oct. 15.

Attempted homicide thwarted by malfunctioning gun By Nick Veronin

ountain View police are asking for the public’s help in an attempted homicide Sunday that left a man injured. A man entered a home in the 800 block of N. Rengstorff Avenue early Sunday morning, Oct. 20, pointed a handgun at a man living in the residence and pulled the trigger twice, according to the Mountain View Police Department. The gun malfunctioned and did not fire. The gunman then pistolwhipped the victim and fled with

another adult member of the household — a woman — who accompanied him voluntarily, according to Shino Tanaka, public information officer with the MVPD. The victim called 911 shortly after the incident, at 4:10 a.m. He suffered only minor injuries and declined to be taken to the hospital. According to Tanaka, nothing was stolen during the incident and police don’t believe that the gunman intended to steal anything. It seems the gunman and the woman who left with him knew each other. The case is still under investi-

gation and police are not releasing more information at this time. Tanaka asked that anyone with information get in touch with the MVPD. Tips may be submitted anonymously either by calling 650-903-6395 or sending a text message to 274637 on a mobile phone. When texting, tipsters should begin their message with the keyword “MVTips” — all one word — and then provide a brief description of no more than 160 characters. Tanaka said it will be helpful if tipsters identify the case by using the case number, 5946. V

he Mountain View Whisman School District is looking for a few good subs. “If you have a four-year college degree, you are probably eligible to work as a substitute teacher,” read a mass email sent out to the district’s mailing list. On Oct. 23, the district hosted an informational meeting for anyone interested in learning what they need to do to become a substitute teacher. Community members and parents were invited. Superintendent Craig Goldman acknowledged that looking for substitute teachers among his district’s parents was a bit unconventional. Usually, the district just posts job listings on Craigslist or on the education job site EdJoin. But in a lot of ways, Goldman said, it makes a lot of sense to reach out directly to the community.

“We shouldn’t overlook the potential of our community members to provide the staff and support we need,” Goldman said. After all, Mountain View is a highly educated community, and the parents of district students have a diverse set of skills, he said. Some of those parents probably would like to have some extra work, Goldman said. “It’s a way of supporting schools while getting a nice part-time job with flexibility.” As the announcement explains, most people with a four-year college degree are likely eligible to sub. The only other major requirements include a background check and passing the CBEST, or California Basic Educational Skills Test. The district is in need of more substitute teachers because they have been stepping up their efforts to provide their full-time

faculty with more professional development opportunities. While the district has a sufficient reserve of subs to deal with teachers who call in sick or who go on vacation or leave, it is harder to find enough subs when a large group of teachers want to attend a mid-week professional development event. Sometimes 20 or 30 teachers will request to attend professional development events during the week, Goldman said. And while the district would like to be able to send them, they need to ensure they have the substitute staff to cover for the day. Goldman said it is particularly challenging finding substitutes with specialized skills, so he is hoping individuals with a background in science, math, social studies and English will attend the meeting. For more information, call the district office at 650-526-3500. V

Protesters gather for a march to protest the mayor’s position on a gun control group.

Protest highlights mayor’s stance on gun control

Twenty Years Transforming Lives



early 40 people gathered at the downtown Caltrain Station on Thursday to protest Mayor John Inks’ refusal to join a large coalition of mayors calling for “common sense” gun control measures. As restaurant-goers dined along Castro Street’s sidewalks, the group delivered its message with the chant, “Mayor Inks, your position stinks!” all the way down Castro Street and then in front of City Hall. “No mayor should be able to get away without joining Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” said organizer Josh Wolf, a high school teacher. “The Palo Alto and Sunnyvale mayors both joined the coalition. I want Mayor Inks to represent his constituents and sign on as well.” Inks refused to join Mayors Against Illegal Guns — a coalition of over 1,000 mayors across the country — in September, calling the group “fundamentally anti-gun” and refusing to have a discussion with advocates for the coalition. “Inks has declined to have this discussion with us, so we’re taking the discussion to him,” Wolf said before the march. Wolf says the group’s demands are not anti-gun, often citing the fact that even 74 percent of the National Rifle Association’s

members support increased background checks for gun buyers. It was said at Thursday’s rally that millions of guns are purchased every year without background checks, at gun shows or in states that do not require them. “Ninety-two percent of Americans support background checks, and we can’t even get a vote in Congress,” Wolf said. “That 8 percent has an outsized influence.” MAIG has asked mayors to sign onto seven principles, including being tougher on law-breaking gun dealers, increased efforts to trace guns, expanded background checks and new laws that would “keep lethal, military-style weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines off our streets.” Former City Council candidate Jim Neal and his wife staged a two-person counter protest when the march reached City Hall, with Neal holding a sign that said, “What part of the second amendment don’t you understand?” “The Second Amendment specifically states that Congress shall pass no law prohibiting the right of people to keep and bear arms,” Neal said, adding that “I believe the purpose of this group is to make all guns illegal.” He added that it was founded by New York Mayor Michael

Bloomberg, “more of the same” from a mayor who pushed to make large soft drinks illegal in New York City. “I’m not for having guns in criminals’ hands either,” Neal said, adding that passing new laws wouldn’t help. “Criminals don’t obey the law, that’s why they’re criminals.” Several of those in attendance were behind a campaign to pass a gun control measure in Sunnyvale called Measure C. If passed next month, the measure would require all ammunition sold in Sunnyvale to be tracked, would ban the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds, would require safe storage of guns and require that lost or stolen guns be reported within 48 hours. The Sunnyvale resident spearheading Measure C, Don Veith, said he hoped the measure would inspire other cities to take such action, noting that San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles have already passed similar laws. “There are cities all over California that have versions of what we’re asking voters to do,” he said. Veith noted that Sunnyvale’s mayor has been instrumental in placing Measure C on November’s ballot. Email Daniel DeBolt at

our campus, VTA, Caltrain and downtown Mountain View,� said Denise Pinkston, chair of the Mountain View agency’s board and a partner with developer TMG, which is developing a campus for Samsung on the 600 block of Clyde Avenue. Because it is not yet a requirement, Pinkston said she couldn’t guarantee there would be a publicly accessible shuttle service to and from North Bayshore. Residents have long desired a frequent bus service to North Bayshore’s movie theaters, restaurants and other entertainment venues, as well as Shoreline Park. Council member Jac Siegel said it was likely to happen soon. “I really believe it will go into effect within next six months to a year,� Siegel said. “Nothing like that exists now. People want to go to the movies, they want to go to Shoreline Park. We think that’s a big benefit to the people of Mountain View.� Siegel said it was likely that such a shuttle to North Bayshore would even operate on nights and weekends. He added that such an arrangement is something Google would not have volunteered to do before. “One of the things that is exciting about it is that Intuit has already said that anybody can use their shuttles — Google initially said we’re not going to do that,� Siegel said. Intuit officials told the City

Council on Tuesday that its shuttles to and from Marine Way, near Shoreline Park’s West entrance, are open to the public, though Siegel expressed concern about whether the public knew this. Pinkston said Google and other companies would likely continue to run their own shuttle programs, but efforts would be made with the TMA to make sure as many routes as possible were not “duplicated.�

‘I think together we’re really going to do some interesting stuff.’ DENISE PINKSTON

The effort has so far been spearheaded by TMG partners, which has experience creating such a service in Emeryville beginning in the 1980s called Emery Go-Round that connects BART with a shopping mall, Pixar, and other employers. The service publishes maps and schedules online. “We take thousands of cars off the road everyday,� Pinkston said of Emery Go-Round, which she said MTMA would be modeled after. “It had a huge impact on that community. The hope is that Mountain View’s TMA will have a significant impact on the quality of life in Mountain View.�

Mountain View’s TMA is likely to grow as developers and tech companies are required to join as a condition of new development in Mountain View. Google apparently got the message that it would probably be required to join the TMA soon when it propose its first major office development in Mountain View to the City Council. Pinkston said the MTMA has many decisions to make over the coming year, such as how the buses will be branded, what exactly the routes and schedules will be and how the endeavor will be publicized, among other things. The association recently formed as a non-profit that is not subject to laws requiring publicly accessible meetings, Pinkston said, though city officials will be involved. “It’s a big deal to have all of these companies with incredibly divergent interests to sit down at the table together to work on a common solution,� Pinkston said “Each party brings to the table different business practices and different transit needs, but I think together we’re really going to do some interesting stuff.� Email Daniel DeBolt at

believe the board or district officials are in the wrong. The first rule stipulates that trustees should “model behavior which will cause the board and the superintendent to be perceived as an effective and efficient leadership team.� The second requires that board members ought to “support all decisions and policies of the board, whether those decisions and policies are made unanimously or by a majority of the board.� The wisdom and fairness of the rules were recently called into question at a district board meeting. “What if the board is ineffective and inefficient?� asked community member and lawyer Gary Wesley at the Oct. 3 board meeting. At the meeting, Wesley spoke up in defense of trustee Steven Nelson, who was ultimately censured by the board for a laundry list of unprofessional behavior. While Wesley did not defend some of Nelson’s more egregious actions — including an incident in which the trustee apparently screamed profanities in the district office — he did voice concern that the board was attempting to “shut up� a “watchdog� by censuring Nelson. In a document which compiled many of Nelson’s alleged transgressions, it was reported that he had “violated the obligation of board members to support decisions of the board majority.� Additionally, in interviews with the Voice, and during the board’s discussions in the lead up to Nelson’s censure, several trustees said that he had acted inappropriately by expressing dissenting opinions to this newspaper and in other public forums. In his comments to the district trustees on Oct. 3, Wesley said he believed it is the duty of all board members to speak up if they feel something is wrong. “They’ve added teeth that will bite any board member that speaks out,� he told the Voice. “They’ve set a bad precedent.� Craig Goldman, superintendent of the district, said he doesn’t see any problem with the rules. “The board believes it is important that it govern itself by a certain set of standards,� Goldman said. “I appreciate that those standards include the expectation that district employees be treated with respect and that the decisions of the board are supported by other board members whether or not they agree with the decision.� Ellen Wheeler, president of the district board said she has the highest respect for Peter Scheer

and Gary Wesley, but said she ultimately disagrees that the sections of the trustees code of conduct are stupid or set a bad precedent. The code of conduct is a set of guidelines, Wheeler noted, and they do not infringe upon the First Amendment rights of any of the trustees, in her opinion. Acknowledging that the entire discussion over the fairness and constitutionality of the code of conduct rules has emerged because of Nelson’s censure, Wheeler emphasized that Nelson was not condemned for politely voicing his dissent. “Steven Nelson wasn’t censured for speaking out about things that he disagreed with on the whole,� Wheeler said. “He was censured for his insulting, bullying behavior. That is different than First Amendment rights of being able to speak his mind. All of us are encouraged to speak our minds.� Indeed, there is a separate stipulation within the trustee code of conduct that encourages “the expression of divergent opinions by individual members of the board, the students, community and staff on all issues of concern.� It is true, Wheeler admitted, that Nelson was chastised for

speaking out against decisions of the board. However, she said, that had more to do with the manner in which he voice his opinion, not that he publicly opposed the board. “It’s fine for him to have a healthy discussion with Craig Goldman or a healthy discussion at a board meeting where he shares his opinion,� she said. It would even be justifiable for him to explain to the local press why he opposed a certain board vote. But according to Wheeler, there were a number of times when Nelson disagreed with the board’s decision where he repeatedly and sometimes offensively, expressed his dissatisfaction. Wheeler explained that there’s a difference between explaining why you voted against something and repeatedly drilling that explanation into the ground. “That turns into not supporting the vote of the majority.� Scheer said that it is not uncommon for school boards to adopt policies that encourage or require board members to speak with one voice. Nor is it unconstitutional, he noted — so long as a board does not impose a severe punishment for violating the code of conduct, such as stripping a

trustee of his or her post. But that doesn’t mean he supports such policies. When asked what he thought about the Mountain View Whisman code of conduct, he replied: “That strikes me as an extreme policy — a bad idea.� Such policies “do not advance the public interest,� Scheer said. Goldman said that he doesn’t believe the board’s bylaws make any attempt to stifle speech. According to him, encouraging “the expression of divergent opinions,� while simultaneously asking that board members not

speak out against board decisions is not contradictory. “It’s appropriate for board members to discuss issues in a robust manner during board meetings in a public forum. And to demonstrate our professional, respectful demeanor,� he said. “I think the idea is that there is a time and place.� And according to Goldman, that time is in public meetings. Once a decision is made, however, a board member should be prepared to at least uphold the decision, even if he or she does not support it, he said. V

“The point wasn’t to say Latham is the street where we should invest lots and lots of money,” Clark said. The point was to say, “We shouldn’t be looking at El Camino as our only option.” As for the Halloween party, Fuller said it was suggested to Sumant that it be organized on a quieter side street. But “since all the neighbors who put on the party live on the 1300 block of Latham Street, it didn’t make any sense to block off someone else’s street,” Sumant said. “It would be presumptuous to block off someone else’s street for a party.” V

at the same time having a real positive effect on the world,” Churilov said. “It’s definitely a mutually beneficial situation,” said Brendan Mauro, one of the game developers who was invited for an interview. On Friday afternoon, Oct. 18, he was able to publicize his San Francisco-based company’s new game, Extrasolar, which allows players to drive a rover on a fictional planet where life is believed to exist, while uncovering the motives of “a private space agency with a shadowy past.” “We have a strong interest in science and space and we would love it if more people were interested,” Mauro said of the game, which he says has many details based on NASA research. “This is our small part to assist in that.” Churilov started the event with Shamayel Daoud and Matthew Rasmussen (Rasmussen came up with the idea) three years ago, running the event inside a friend’s home. Needless to say, the group says it is thrilled to have the Dojo’s ultra-fast internet connection to allow for higher quality video streaming. The event has plenty of publicity and interest because of the nature of the independent video game community. Independent game developers work alone or in small groups — some “wildly successful” financially and others just working as hobbyists — but almost always communicating with other developers or fans online. The event has a wide reach. Because it continues around the clock, “We hit every time zone,” Churilov said, so, for example, European gamers chat with the group in the middle of the night. The marathon ended at 5:24 a.m. on Oct. 21. For more information, visit Email Daniel DeBolt at

school bond, and we would not support a bond positioned that way.” Doug Smith, president of the LASD board of trustees, has said he understands and even shares some of Hurd’s concerns. If the bond is to pass, Smith said, a large portion of the community will have to get behind it, and that means that the “optics” of the bond and what it is for are very important.

Smith said he wants the bond to pass, and is very concerned with making sure people understand that the proposal is not just about Bullis, but about the improving the district. The district is in need of more space, according to Smith. The LASD student population has ballooned of late, and district’s seven elementary and two junior high schools are overcrowded. While it is true that the district is seeking to add a new school to deal with its growing student body, Smith said the fact is that the district is also taking BCS

into consideration with the bond. “To so say that we’re not building a school for Bullis is deceptive to the public,” Smith said. Whatever inherent suspicions Bullis officials might have concerning the district’s sincerity were only exacerbated by an open letter issued by LASD in response to Bullis’ Oct. 10 letter. The LASD communication, sent on Oct. 16 and signed by Smith, thanked the charter school’s leadership for agreeing to explore the possibility of a joint school bond. However, the letter also chastised the charter for allegedly violating the Facilities Use Agreement with the district, a charge Hurd denied. Hurd said the letter struck him as contradictory, in that it simultaneously extended a hand of negotiation toward his organization while also threatening a lawsuit.

While Smith told the Voice he was encouraged by the charter school’s willingness to discuss a potential school bond, Hurd struck a much more hesitant tone. “LASD can’t make up its mind whether it wants to work together or fight,” Hurd said. “If you want to work together, then work with us and gain support for a bond that will benefit all LASD residents equally. If you want to fight, continue making unfounded allegations that BCS is in violation of the Facilities Use Agreement — which it is not.” In response to Hurd’s comments, Smith said he is genuinely hopeful about the prospect of the bond. He acknowledged that his district and BCS have “significant differences in what it takes to pass a bond,” but said he believes that overall the organizations agreement to talk was a sign of “wonderful progress.” Phelps struck a similar, albeit more cautious tone. “We’re fully enthusiastic about supporting the bond as long as it’s not a Bullis bond primarily,” he said. “The overt hostility needs to come to a close if this district intends to peacefully resolve this matter.” Email Nick Veronin at

hat should the city do for south- or north-bound cyclists who want to ride between Palo Alto and Sunnyvale along El Camino Real in Mountain Views? The City Council tackled that idea last week and came up with a decision that will not make diehard cyclists happy, although the council did discuss an alternative that we think is the best solution. The council’s position on this issue came during discussion of a new precise plan for El Camino, including a proposal to install a bike lane through much of the city. The sweetener in a proposed deal would be provided by the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) which would pay for the bike lane if the council approved its Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, which would dedicate one lane of El Camino to buses. But dedicated bike lane or not, the council wisely balked at putting bicycles on an extremely busy urban corridor in an environment where drivers often reach speeds of 50 miles per hour or more. “I don’t know how you make El Camino Real safe enough to make it a real bike corridor,� said Mike Kasperzak. Others had similar misgivings. Jac Siegel said there is so little room for bikes that drivers could easily violate the new law requiring drivers to stay three feet away from cyclists. “I don’t know how that works,� Siegel said. Rather than El Camino, council members are inclined get more

creative, and in this case, work toward making a street parallel to El Camino into a bike boulevard, like Bryant Street in Palo Alto. On bike boulevards, most stops signs favor the cyclist and through the use of artificial barriers, cul de sacs are created to reduce some automotive traffic on the street. A good candidate for a bike boulevard in Mountain View would be Latham Street, which is just a block or two from El Camino, and becomes Church Street east of Shoreline Boulevard. We think this would be a much safer design for cyclists, who even in a bike lane would have to negotiate incoming and outgoing traffic at countless commercial driveways along El Camino. Janet Lafleur, a bicycle advocate and Voice blogger on the subject, said she is sometimes forced onto sidewalks and into parking lots while using a bike to shop on El Camino. In her mind, parking on El Camino should give way to a bike lane. “I’d really like us to prioritize bicycles over parking on El Camino,� she said. But that would be an uphill struggle that countless merchants would oppose. Rather than potentially wasting the city’s resources on El Camino, it makes much more sense to study establishing a bike boulevard on Latham Street. The cost would be minimal, mostly for signs and striping. And if Latham were chosen, it would be close enough for riders to easily reach El Camino to shop or access other offices. And it would be much, much safer.





Bus Rapid Transit options still being studied By Margaret Abe-Koga

Bikes not safe on El Camino


here’s been quite a bit of traffic on neighborhood email listservs regarding the Bus Rapid Transit project along the El Camino Real corridor, and I wanted to clarify some information and address some concerns. First, I want to make clear that no final decision has been made about how the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system will operate along El Camino Real. The Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is currently studying the impacts of seven project alternatives that emerged after an initial round of public meetings held in 2012. The alternatives cover a range of possible projects — from making no improvements to the transit system to installing 14.1 miles of dedicated bus lanes from Embarcadero Road to Lafayette Street along El Camino Real. Though dedicated lanes were not embraced by every city along the corridor, I

supported studying its impacts and benefits as that information is crucial to providing an accurate comparison to the other project alternatives, using various criteria like how smoothly traffic will flow, transit usage, traffic impacts, and cost. The goals of BRT are clear: 1) to improve reliability, travel times, amenities, safety and access for the 15,000 daily weekday riders (Route 522 and 22 combined) that take VTA bus service to work, school, and appointments on El Camino Real; and 2) to accommodate the demand that future growth will put on our road network by providing solutions that make non-auto modes like public transit and bicycling more appealing. This will be a benefit to auto users as well as non-auto users. In an effort to decrease greenhouse gases and improve mobility, many cities along El Camino Continued on next page

FRUSTRATED BY TIMING ON BUS TRANSIT PLAN The City Council announced by postcard 10 days in advance of its 5 p.m. hearing on Oct. 15 on the El Camino Precise Plan study session, instructing us to visit after hours, go online or call to learn the real time (actually 6 p.m.) I reviewed the “Plan Update� (dated that day) and the “attachments� plus a prior

lane diagram, prepared some comments and attended. After three hours in council chambers I went home shivering, hungry and too burned out to deliver my three minutes.

Is the City Council trying to filter out comment from noninsiders? Perhaps those unfamiliar with their scheduling and communication system are considered ‘casual’ commenters. I’d like to share a nutshell version of my thoughts on the bicycle and pedestrian elements. BAD IDEAS: Pedestrians crossing multiple lanes of traffic to wait in the middle of El Camino for a bus. Thinking bicyclists (not errant vehicles and jaywalkers?) “endanger pedestrians.” Double-billing the “door zone” as a “bike lane.” Asking bicyclists to use El Camino as a through route. Creating another lane by making all lanes narrower. Drivers distracted by storefronts while negotiating four lanes of traffic. Tall buildings closer than 100 feet from heavy traffic; who wants to walk inside a noisy, smelly, echo-chamber to go shopping? BETTER: On El Camino, bikes and pedestrians in a safe zone protected from traffic. Off El Camino, bicycle throughroutes on less chaotic, two-lane streets. Tim Pratt Park Drive

Real, including Mountain View, adopted the practice of focusing development along corridors already served by public transit, as opposed to areas that can only be reached by car. Young people today have increasingly supported that shift through more affordable and environmentally conscious alternatives such as going car-free and living closer to job centers to have other travel options and the numbers are showing increased ridership on most all transit systems. We’re not trying to force people to live a certain way; we’re planning so that we can meet the variety of competing needs that will arise. An effective, green-vehicle rapid transit solution will increase transit usage and benefit other modes of transportation as well. Additional infrastructure investments this project will bring to the area will provide safe and better access for bicycles and pedestrians. The El Camino Real corridor is one of three corridors being planned for the Bus Rapid Transit network. The current environmental review process is an opportunity to study and determine the most beneficial transportation

Public review and input is expected again in summer 2014, and I look forward to having those discussions again with VTA staff and the many stakeholders, who care as much as I do about the future of our city and valley. Itís certainly been a pleasure for me to serve as Mountain View and North Countyís representative on the VTA board of directors and be a part of moving the BART extension project forward into San Jose, which is ahead of schedule, the light rail double-tracking project into Mountain View to allow for increased express service, and the BRT, which all contribute to a bright outlook for increasing transit options in our county.

Not just red meat and leafy vegetables STEAKHOUSE SIZZLES WITH FIRSTRATE FARE, BRIMS WITH TALENT By Dale F. Bentson / Photos by Michelle Le


hate kale, which probably means I won’t live to be 200. Recently, I encountered chopped kale at the Palo Alto Grill and, gasp, I liked it. I might make it to 100 now. The kale wasn’t presented by itself. It was secreted away on the plate, mixed with chopped chard and mustard greens and tucked under the tender, crispy breaded chicken breast ($22). The chicken came with mini-waffles and sauteed apples, all drizzled with stock and Dijon mustard sauce. It was good eating. The kale was serendipitous, though, nestled beneath the sheltering chicken as if I would have rejected the plate on sight. I might have. Not that I walked away a kale fan, but I did achieve some level of detente with those too-chewy leaves. And I departed fully satisfied with Palo Alto Grill, the brainchild of partners Luka Dvornik and Ryan Shelton. Dvornik, managing general partner, was co-owner of the late Lavanda restaurant. Managerial stints at Cafe Torre and Cafe Adriatic contributed to his experience. Fine-tuning makes a difference, and PAG runs like a clock. Plenty of talent in the kitchen as well. Shelton is partner and executive chef. He began his cooking career at a Ritz-Carlton property, then became the pastry chef at Chez TJ, chef de cuisine at Michelin-starred Baume, and most recently executive chef at Le Cigare Volant. Yoomi Shelton is the pastry chef (yes, they are married). In addition to graduating from culinary school in San Francisco, she has a degree in hotel and restaurant management and worked at the late Citizen Cake, the RitzCarlton and others. The inviting interior is stylish and minimal: wood-plank floor, bare wood tables and chairs, butternut squash-colored walls with modernist wall art. The dining room is The espresso cheesecake at Palo Alto Grill is topped with red-beet meringue, passion fruit and chocolate.

sectioned off from the bar area and two rooms are available for private functions. Chef Shelton adjusts the menu seasonally, and what I am writing today might not be the truth and nothing but the truth by the time you get there. First-rate kitchens continually adjust menus to incorporate the freshest, most seasonal ingredients.

One of the dishes I had, the delicious and colorful puree of corn soup ($10) with bell pepper, chili, corn-muffin crouton and popcorn, for instance, will no doubt segue to pumpkin soup. Equally tasty, I am sure. The starters/small plates were both tempting and fun. The salmon poke ($14) was assembled with seaweed, cucumber,

avocado and gochujang (a fermented Korean condiment of red chili, glutinous rice, soybeans and salt.) The dish was a visual surprise and the strata of flavor were intriguing and refreshing. I loved the grilled Japanese octopus ($14) that was served with fingerling potatoes, lemon and basil oil. The octopus was perfectly cooked: that is, cooked through

but not to the point of being rubbery. It’s tricky business but when it’s done right, it’s delicious. The avocado corn dogs ($7) were whimsical and enticing. Chunks of avocado had been thickly breaded and deep-fried. These “dogs” were more spheres on sticks than the long dogs found at the county fair. Served with coarse mustard and cilantro, they were an appetite-igniter. For main plates, steaks were the star attraction. The “Turf and Turf” ($32) featured a 13-ounce succulent, dry-aged, bone-in, rib eye with slices of house-made

pastrami layered over the top. Peppercorns and onions added taste and texture and the Bordelaise sauce was heavenly gravy. The tender 9-ounce grilled hanger steak frites ($28) was mouthwatering with fries, Bordelaise sauce and a small frisee salad. Corn and vegetable bisque pot pie ($19) was loaded with mushrooms and peas with hints of sage in a hearty tomato sauce, and boasted a great crust: a worthwhile vegetarian option. There were satisfying sides as Continued on next page

well. Fried brussels sprouts ($7) with brown sugar, butter and pecans and the miso-glazed carrots ($6) were both delectable. Dessert was a blessed event. The 64 percent chocolate torte ($11) had layers of sponge cake and chocolate mousse with a side of vanilla gelato topped with ground peanuts and drizzled with yuzu caramel. Yummy. The espresso cheesecake ($9) was made from cream-soaked, toasted illy coffee beans, eggs and cookie crumbs, baked at a low temperature and topped with a red-beet meringue and a dollop of passion fruit. Delightful. There is a full bar, and an adequate and fairly priced wine list. The waitstaff was friendly and very knowledgeable. They had to be because the menu was void of descriptions, showing just a partial list of ingredients. It’s my one fault with the restaurant. It’s difficult to get excited about a dish with so little information. Overall, a lot of in-house talent who tend to details and make the dining experience a pleasure.

“I want the past past,” says Jasmine. Fat chance. The haunted protagonist of “Blue Jasmine,” played by Cate Blanchett, can’t forget her bygone bliss and the horrifying loss of it. A Park Avenue socialite, Jasmine has lost it all and landed on the San Franciscan doorstep of her workingclass sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins), a good soul tested by her long-absent sibling’s demands. Jasmine and Ginger were both adoptive sisters, but when Jasmine made her social-clambering escape, she never looked back, becoming accustomed not only to a certain lifestyle but to a fabulous selfishness, insulated by willful obliviousness. Certainly, “Blue Jasmine” is Allen’s riff on “A Streetcar Named Desire,” an impression only helped along by the casting of Blanchett, who played Blanche DuBois in an acclaimed 2009 production. Blanchett is a force of nature as Jasmine: the beating heart that keeps the schematic picture alive and kicking, and a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination. Though “Blue Jasmine” is more a drama than a comedy, Blanchett’s comic brio, in Jasmine’s blithely imperious manner, magically complements her mental fragility and self-defeating desperation. Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, language and sexual content. One hour, 38 minutes. — P.C.


The “real-life thriller” “Captain Phillips” may be obvious and it may be clumsy, but it’s also at least a little bit thoughtful, and there’s never a dull moment. Add in two strong central performances and the stylistic stringency of Paul Greengrass, and you get, at the very least, a fine approximation of an important Oscar-time movie. The whole enterprise is basically here to give Tom Hanks something to do, and do it he does as Captain Rich Phillips of the Maersk Alabama, a U.S.-registered cargo ship beset by pirates while on its way from Oman to Kenya in 2009. Greengrass and screenwriter Billy Ray (“State of Play”), working from Phillips’ book “A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS, and Dangerous Days at Sea,” hurriedly establish victims — Phillips, his wife (Catherine Keener in a blink-or-you’ll-miss-’er cameo), and his crew — and perps, the Somali crews sent out by a warlord padding his war chest. The pirate captain, Abduwali Muse (Barkhad Abdi), quickly draws our attention as the counterpart to Phillips. Skinny and living under a more intense duress than Phillips, Muse nevertheless deals with similar issues that put him in harm’s way for capitalist goals, and into conflict with his unhappy crew. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of menace, violence with bloody images, and substance use. Two hours, 14 minutes. — P.C.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt rates high on the likeability level, starting out as a child actor and turning in memorable leading roles in the recent “(500) Days of Summer,” “Inception,” “50/50” and “Looper.” Making his screenwriting-directing debut, the dimpled charmer needs to have viewers on his side: He plays a Jersey boy addicted to pornography. The comedy is broad and the characters stereotypical. Contributing a new iteration to the Don Juan myth, Gordon-Levitt stars as a modern-day seducer. He cares about only a few things, such as

working out in the gym, his pad, his ride, his family and friends, his church, girls and pornography. For him, porn proves more satisfying than sex with a real-life partner — even a perfect 10 like the gum-snapping Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson). But filmmakers always have to be careful about glorifying the very subject that they are attempting to criticize. Every time Jon clicks on the Play icon of his computer, he — and we — are meant to take pleasure in the experience. He suffers consequences only when Barbara catches him in the act. Rated R for strong graphic sexual material and dialogue, nudity, language and some drug use. One hour, 29 minutes. — S.T.


Writer-director Holofcener (“Friends with Money”) has devised in “Enough Said” a comedy of separation anxiety and conjoining anxiety. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Eva, a divorced, middle-aged suburban masseuse with a daughter heading to college. James Gandolfini plays Albert, a divorced, middle-aged suburban TV librarian with a daughter heading to college. So they have a lot in common, including a mutual sense of humor, and they instantly hit it off at a party. The course of true love never did run smooth, and at first, the ways Holofcener observes Eva’s hesitations ring true. The slovenly Albert isn’t exactly an obvious physical match for the fit Eva (a disparity the film never forgets to use to painful effect), and she’s gun-shy in any case due to the specter of their failed marriages. But Albert is sweet and funny, and as Eva puts it, “Our middle-agedness is comforting and sexy to me,” so she proceeds, tentatively in Albert’s presence and recklessly when he’s not around. Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, comic violence, language and partial nudity. One hour, 33 minutes. — P.C.


Josh Singer’s highly scrutinized screenplay derives from the 2011 books “Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange and the World’s Most Dangerous Website” by former WikiLeaks spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg (played in the film by “Rush”’s Daniel Bruhl) and “WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy” by David Leigh and Luke Harding of Britain’s venerable newspaper “The Guardian.” In telling the story of the news-leaking, whistle-blowing website, the movie makes the fundamental mistake of taking Domscheit-Berg’s perspective and allowing Assange to become the hero’s antagonist. This is not to say that “The Fifth Estate” doesn’t try to have it both ways. The film paints Assange as an unethical master manipulator, an imperious egotist and a white-haired weirdo, but it also hammers the point that WikiLeaks marked a revolution in journalism, the next evolutionary step connoted by the title. Rated R for language and some violence. Two hours, eight minutes. — P.C.

GRAVITY ---1/2

“At 600 km. above the Earth,” we’re told in the new film “Gravity,” “There is nothing to carry sound. No air pressure. No oxygen. Life in space is impossible.” And yet, there we are. The evocation of Ridley Scott’s 1979 “Alien” (“In space, no one can hear you scream”) is apt: “Gravity” is a bit like “Alien” without the alien, replacing it with existential despair that’s just as likely to take a fatal bite out of the heroine. Here the heroine is Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a medical engineer sent via space shuttle to assist in repairs to the Hubble Space Telescope. In the film’s first sequence — a bravura 12-minute segment crafted to

appear as a single camera shot with no cuts — satellite debris shoots at the shuttle and the telescope, causing a fatal accident that threatens to strand and thereby kill Stone and shuttle commander Matt Kowalski (George Clooney). Dwindling oxygen and thruster power threaten their survival, as does Stone’s natural panic due to the circumstances and her inexperience. Rated PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language. One hour, 30 minutes. — P.C.


A-list talent in front of and behind the camera boosts expectations that Denis Villeneuve’s crime thriller “Prisoners” will deliver the goods. But actors — including Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo and Paul Dano — cannot elevate the screenplay by Aaron Guzikowski (“Contraband”) into a work of moral complexity and white-knuckle tension. Kidnapped children, devastated and frantic parents, a cool-headed detective and creepy suspects are core conventions. Keller Dover (Jackman) believes in praying for the best and preparing for the worst. Living in a sleepy Pennsylvania town, the loving father trains his family in survival skills. Dover assures his wife (Bello), teenage son (Dylan Minnette) and daughter (Erin Gerasimovich) that he can protect them from anything. One fateful Thanksgiving proves him wrong. Rated R for language, disturbing violent content and torture. Two hours, 33 minutes. — S.T.

RUSH --1/2

The director of “Frost/Nixon,” Ron Howard, brings us in “Rush” another Morgan match-up: 1970s Formula One racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. “Rush” proves most distinguished by its dual sympathies for British playboy Hunt (an impressive change of pace for Chris Hemsworth) and sour but focused Austrian driver Lauda (Daniel Bruhl). They size each other up as they make their ways through the Formula Three circuit, and Morgan establishes their personalities both in their behaviors and in their traded-off narration of insights like “The closer you are to death, the more alive you feel.” It’s not long before “Rush” arrives at the legendary 1976 Formula One season, but even then, Howard makes clear that it’s not about the races. They’re there, but rushed through kinetically edited montages so we can get back to the concerns of Hunt and Lauda in their careers (threatened by each other’s successes) and married lives (in underwritten turns, Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara play Hemsworth and Bruhl’s respective spouses). Rated R for sexual content, nudity, language, disturbing images and brief drug use. Two hours, three minutes. — P.C.

From Jump Serves to Arias Harker helps students find their passions. Like Gabby, who tried wrestling (she was the first female on our wrestling team), but pursued opera. And Tanya, whose favorite memory with her Harker friends was going to the volleyball state championships her senior year. While she’ll be attending NYU next year to complete her master’s in literature (her other passion), she’s currently playing on a German regional volleyball team.

“It was amazing being constantly surrounded by people whose brains and hearts I admired.” – Tanya Schmidt ‘08

It’s our passion to help students find theirs. It’s why we hire the best teachers, and offer the classes our students need not only to explore interests, but to go as far as their abilities – and imaginations – can take them. Harker is a place where operatic wrestlers and literary team captains find community. In fact, that’s what Andy and Michael, who both signed to play college soccer, said best describes Harker: community and family. So whether students love Russian literature, musical theater or corner kicks, Harker is just the place. Visit us and find out for yourself how Harker helps students discover their passions!

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. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier's check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in §5102 to the Financial code and authorized to do business in

this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to satisfy the obligation secured by said Deed of Trust. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. Trustor(s): LAURIE A. DOWNS-GREEN Recorded: 08/25/98, as Instrument No. 14351634,of Official Records of SANTA CLARA County, California.

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 the property itself.

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 same 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.
