Could wrestling return to MVHS? PARENTS, BOOSTERS, SCHOOL OFFICIALS HOPE TO BRING SPORT BACK By Nick Veronin

A

group of local parents are prepared to go to the mat in support of a proposal to bring back Mountain View High School’s long-discontinued wrestling program. Bob Capriles, the father of a freshman, and Mike Johnson, president of the school’s Sports Boosters, say it’s high time to rebuild the Spartan wrestling

program. “I think it really needs to be brought back to the high school,” Johnson told the Voice — especially in light of the fact that we are the only high school in Santa Clara County without a wrestling program.” According to Capriles, the lack of a Spartan wrestling team is even more vexing when one considers that both of Mountain View’s feeder schools — Blach

and Graham — have strong wrestling programs. Dave Grissom, principal of Mountain View High School, said he doesn’t want to rule out an eventual return of wrestling to his school. However, bringing the program back could prove tricky, he explained. “We haven’t said now,” Grissom said. “I have some concerns See WRESTLING, page 9

Emergency dispatchers received two separate reports of a man exposing himself on the trail around 1 p.m. on Feb. 19 near the trail’s Yuba Drive entrance, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department. The man did not make an attempt to touch the boys. Responding officers located a man matching the description given by the two boys, Jaeger said.

Commissioner latest victim of housing crisis HRC’S SANTIAGO, PRICED OUT OF HOME, MOVING TO STATE OF WASHINGTON By Daniel DeBolt

R

esidents driven away by Mountain View’s escalating rents now include Human Relations Commissioner Nilda Santiago, who has spent more than a quartercentury in Mountain View. “It’s been pretty hard and sad because I actually built my life here 26 years ago,” Santiago said. When she moved to the city, she could afford an apartment on Hope Street despite being a 24-year-old single mother pursuing a degree from Foothill College, she said. “It’s been a very, very long time.

I have to try all over again in a whole different place.” When the rent jumped from $1,500 to $1,850 a month for their California Street apartment in September of 2012, Santiago and her husband decided to move into a building on Sierra Vista Avenue where her husband sells computer parts, converting two rooms into living spaces with permission from the city. But now the landlord is evicting the building’s tenants to make way for a housing development. Given rising rents — and the fact that Santiago is disabled and doesn’t work — finding

a new Mountain View home seems daunting. “We actually started last year, around October, to look for places to move again,” Santiago said. “The rent for housing was going up a lot. We looked in Gilroy, in Fremont, we looked everywhere.” The rents at her old California Street complex went up to $2,300 a month, she said. So Santiago says she is leaving for Bremerton, Wash. soon. Her husband had visited a friend there and was charmed by a place where the American dream still seems possible See SANTIAGO, page 10

Water district calls for big cutbacks By Nick Veronin

J

ust hours before the skies above the Peninsula began to dump rain into local creeks and reservoirs this week, the Santa Clara Valley Water District called for greater conservation efforts — with the board voting at its meeting Tuesday night to increase its water reduction target from 10 percent to 20 percent. According to Marty Grimes, a spokesman for the district, the rainfall is a welcome sight in

his parched district, but it isn’t enough to make any real inroads toward reversing the current drought conditions. “We’re expecting this storm to produce about 3 to 5 inches of rain in the hills,” Grimes told the Voice. “Our estimate is that we need 8 inches or more to start seeing significant runoff into our reservoirs.” Grimes said that the ground needs to become saturated before water will begin to make its way into streams, ponds and lakes. Usually, the ground

becomes saturated early on in the fall or winter, and stays relatively wet all season long, he said. However, this year, the weather has remained dry for weeks or months in between short bursts of rain. Further complicating the local water situation, the whole state is experiencing record low rainfall, Grimes said. This has resulted in serious reductions in allocations from California’s federal and state water management agencies. The California Department of Water Resources recently

informed the Santa Clara Valley Water District that it would not be receiving any allocation from the California State Water Project this year. Grimes said. And, while the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation did not cut the district off entirely, they have severely cut back on the amount they will deliver this year — withholding all agriculture allocations and only allowing 50 percent of its historical allocation for municipal and industrial uses. “It’s quite a hit,” Grimes said. At its Feb. 25 meeting, the water district’s board approved a resolution recommending that local residents cut back water

consumption even more — setting a target of 20 percent less water use than in 2013. The board previously voted for a reduction target of 10 percent on Jan. 28. While the Santa Clara Valley Water District upped its conservation target from 10 percent to 20 percent, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s target for 10 percent water reduction remains the same. Mountain View receives the bulk (87 percent) of its water supply from the San Francisco PUC, while the Santa Clara Valley Water District provides most of the remainder.

fficials with the Mountain View Whisman School District are seeking the community’s comments before the board of trustees takes its final vote on the latest round of Measure G school bond plans. On March 20, the district’s board is scheduled to vote on the draft designs for the second phase of construction at Crittenden and Graham middle schools. The second phase of building at the district’s middle schools will include the construction of a new library and classroom wing at Crittenden, the rebuilding of a library and the construction of new classrooms at Graham, and the revamping of restroom facilities at both schools, according to Terese McNamee, associate superintendent and chief business officer for the district.

COUNTY LIBRARIES IMPROVE E-BOOK OFFERINGS The Santa Clara County Library District is encouraging readers to delve into more than 46,000 free e-books being made available to library cardholders. In an effort to entice readers, the library district last year joined ReadersFirst, an international coalition of libraries that aims to improve e-book access and services for public library patrons. ReadersFirst allows patrons to search one comprehensive catalog to access library offerings; as well as place holds, check out and renew items, view availability and manage fines. Without ReadersFirst, library patrons would often be directed to third-party sites when checking out an e-book from a library, virtual library manager Megan Wong said. “The user experience gets fractured because there are several different distributors,� she said,

adding that patrons would have to log in again on a separate website before the library joined the ReadersFirst coalition. “We’re trying to bring all of the content and features to our own library site,� Wong said. She said the library district has seen a spike in demand for e-books among patrons, which prompted the district to make the experience as seamless as possible. Wong said that each year, the library tries to increase the number of e-books it has in its collection. “We have been seeing a trend in that our e-books have increased 75 percent in the last fiscal year,� she said. The Santa Clara County Library District began offering e-books in 2007. To view the “ReadersFirst Guide to Library E-Book Vendors,� people can visit www.sccl. org/readersfirst. —Bay City News Service

OPEN SPACE DISTRICT BOND VOTE The board of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District was expected to vote Wednesday, Feb. 26, to place a $300 million bond measure on the June ballot. The district says the money would be spent on projects to expand public access; protect redwood forests; manage land that feeds lakes, streams and waterways; preserve agriculture along the San Mateo Coast; and restore native vegetation. The increase in the property tax rate would not exceed $3.18 per $100,000 of assessed valuation, the district says. Passage would require approval by two-thirds of the voters in the district, which includes large parts of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and a portion of unincorporated Santa Cruz County. The board meeting was held after the Voice’s Wednesday press deadline. —Almanac staff

Cancer survivors celebrate healing through art at El Camino Hospital By Katie Straub

S

plashes of yellows, greens, oranges and blues have colored the lower floor lobby of El Camino Hospital this month, where paintings created by cancer survivors have been exhibited as part of an ongoing art show entitled “Symphony of Color.” The art show, which opened Feb. 11 and closes Friday after a two-week run, displayed a collection of work from El Camino Hospital’s “Creative Expressions: Painting Classes for Cancer Survivors” class, in which all students are cancer patients undergoing various stages of treatment and recovery. Art therapist Tehlia Eisenstat said she has taught the class for 12 years to offer cancer patients the opportunity to use art as a method of healing. According to Eisenstat, students can escape the difficulties of their illness through the joys of painting. “Some therapies use your pain and your scars. What I do is introduce color, shapes and beauty,” Eisenstat told the Voice. “There is enough ugliness in the world, as Renoir said. We don’t need to contribute more. By learning (to paint), you move on.” The recent show featured 30 student paintings (31 in total, as Eisenstat always throws in one of her own), each a slightly different depiction of the same colorful scene: aspen trees in a clearing. When displayed together in the hospital lobby, each painting came together into a larger picture, a forest of aspen trees for viewers and passersby to enjoy. Eisenstat coordinates public

showings of her class’ artwork at least once, if not twice, each year. This show, “Symphony of Color,” was the first public showing of the class’ artwork in 2014, and students began work on their exhibited pieces in the fall of 2013. Current students in Eisenstat’s class — who range in age from 20 to 90 — entered with all levels of painting experience. They “dive right into” the challenge of learning to paint, developing painting skills through Eisenstat’s guidance, demonstrations, and an environment of encouragement, she said. “I first walked in and Tehila gave me a paintbrush, a canvas, and some paints. I sat down and said, ‘What am I doing?’” said Barbara Capron, who has attended Eisenstat’s class for six years. “I have surprised myself so much, because of the energy in the room. That painting is now hanging on my wall.” Jane Gibson, who has attended the class for four years, echoed Capron’s sentiment and noted the transformative nature of learning to paint. “Everyone says you look at the world differently, once you have started painting,” said Gibson. “You see a tree, and it is not just a green tree, it’s many shades of green.” Art therapy in painting, Eisenstat explained, is often rooted in color — making the recent show’s title, “Symphony of Color,” rather fitting. “I stick to colors, I study them,” Eisenstat said. “Certain colors irritate you, certain colors can welcome you. Certain colors you don’t use when you are doing radiation. There is a lot about it.”

Eisenstat also mentioned that the subject of a painting can sometimes resonate, subtly, with students’ experiences. “The leaves fall down, but then they grow back, like hair,” she said. “And the strength of standing tall and strong. Everything has meaning, there.” But for both Eisenstat and her students, the class is more about art than cancer. According to Gibson, the class’s therapeutic benefit is gained by “leaving cancer at the door.” “It was just so wonderful to go into a room where you knew other people have had the same experiences, and yet, you didn’t need to talk about it,” said Gibson. “To me, it was a nice way to get away from my cancer.” Capron described a moment when, while washing their paintbrushes over the sink, she and a fellow classmate discussed what to do when losing their hair from chemotherapy. “I was just past my surgery when I went to this class. I didn’t know anybody else who had been through this,” Capron said. “We didn’t have a big class discussion or anything, but it was very helpful. There was that support, for which I was very thankful.” Painting is now my thing. It gets into your soul, or your blood, or something,” Gibson said. “It has meant so much to me, and has been a major part of my recovery.” Information about the class and upcoming art shows are at elcaminohospital.org/Cancer_ Center/Cancer_Center_Patient_ Resources or by calling the El Camino Hospital Cancer Center at 650-988-8338.

INAPPROPRIATE MESSAGES Investigators are asking for the community’s help in identifying anyone who may have been victimized by a local man police are calling a sexual predator. The suspect, 31-year-old Cesar Urieta, was arrested on Feb. 18 on charges of causing a minor to distribute harmful material and contacting a minor with the intent to commit a sexual offense, according to a recent post on the Mountain View Police Department’s blog. According to police, Urieta had been renting a room from a Mountain View family for the past few years. During that time, investigators say, he had developed an increasingly inappropriate relationship with the family’s juvenile son — including sending “inappropriate messages� to the boy. In the wake of Urieta’s arrest, detectives are asking that anyone else who may have been

inappropriately contacted by Urieta to come forward and alert authorities. “If you ever come across any questionable material, and you believe the child may be the victim of a sexual predator, call us,� said MVPD Det.

WATCHES STOLEN Someone snatched three watches from a dresser beneath the bedroom window of an apartment located on the 700 block of N. Shoreline Boulevard, police said. The burglary took place on Feb. 21, sometime between about 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., according to Sgt. Jaeger. The watches were valued at about $240, Jaeger said. —Nick Veronin

‘The Los Altos Story’ It was around Christmas in 1989 when he and his wife learned that their son, Steven, was gay and that he had been suffering from AIDS for some time. “It was totally devastating,� Angius said, recalling the news of his son’s illness. Not long after, Angius learned that two other members of the Los Altos Rotary Club — where he was serving as president — had been diagnosed with the AIDS virus. Suddenly, AIDS, which had previously seemed so foreign and mysterious to Angius, was staring him in the face. With the help of his fellow Rotarians, he set out to “do something about AIDS.� The Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project was soon formed and not long after, a 30-minute documentary called “The Los Altos Story� was produced, focusing on the way the virus has impacted Angius, his family and his Rotary Club chapter. The critically acclaimed documentary went on to win a Peabody Award and an ACE (Award for Cable Excellence), and provided inspiration for the Academy Award-winning film “Philadelphia.� To date, Angius noted, 25,000 copies of the documentary have been circulated and the film has been translated into six foreign languages. Though his son later died of the disease, Angius said he is proud of the role he has played in helping in the battle against AIDS. He told the Voice that the district’s decision to memorialize him might top everything else he’s ever accomplished. “Naming the gymnasium after me is one of the most incredible things that’s happened to me,� said Angius, who is now living in Walnut Creek. “I am so honored.� V

Angius said that the best times were those he spent at Los Altos High School. “Nothing could compare to my years at Los Altos High School,� he told the Voice. “Opening a new school was incredible. The community, the student body, the faculty were all second to none.� He said he looks back with special fondness at the years he spent coaching the basketball team and overseeing the athletic department. “We had a trophy case you wouldn’t believe by the time I left,� he said.

whether it’s doable, based on a lack of facilities.” According to Grissom, space at the school is very tight as it is, and scheduling practice for athletic programs and clubs is difficult. The school also doesn’t have much of the equipment needed to start a wrestling team — including uniforms, practice mats and competition mats. “Once the sport is established, it’s not a real expensive sport, but there are some outgoing costs initially,” the principal said, adding that the athletic budget is very tight, which would make it difficult for the school to afford to launch a wrestling program. Johnson said he is sympathetic to Grissom’s concerns about lack of space and the costs associated with starting a wrestling program from scratch. That’s why Johnson and the Sports Boosters have been working to help make the return of wrestling possible. If Capriles can raise money and support among MVHS parents, Johnson said the Sports Boosters will make a financial contribution as well. Capriles’ son Davy said he hopes his father and the Sports Boosters are successful in their efforts. Davy began wrestling at Blach Intermediate School. Now, as a freshman, he said he misses the sport. “It was really disappointing coming into Mountain View (High School),” Davy said, referring to the absence of a wrestling team. He is sure that some of his friends feel the same way. “I have friends from Blach who were

will once more open the floor to questions, comments and concerns from the community. “Our intention is to show our designs and get feedback from the community,” McNamee said of the upcoming meetings. Those designs will be posted to the district’s website on Feb. 28, McNamee said. At Graham, what was once the school’s administration building will become the library, McNamee said. Walls will be knocked down to open up the space and an outdoor patio is being considered. The row of six portables currently located on the south end of the campus near the track will be removed and replaced with a cluster of six permanent classrooms — all of which will be linked by a “shared learning space” where multiple classrooms will be able

upset that there wasn’t wrestling at Mountain View.” Shelley Smith, the school’s athletic director, said that Davy might just get his wish. “Of course we’d like to see it,” Smith said. As far as funding goes, Smith said he believes that will be the easier of the two hurdles. The athletic director said he is quite sure there will be enough support for a program, and that with adequate support, the parents, the boosters and the district would find a way to get the money. “I think if we can identify a viable facility or area where we can house the sport — that’s the first step.” According to Smith, “it’s crazy” how limited space is for athletic programs on the campus. With all of the school’s sports teams and clubs, and with the addition of outside groups vying for access to facilities after school and on the weekends, the school is “maximizing as much room as we have.” Smith said he even heard a rumor that space may have been the ultimate reason the program was discontinued in the first place, though he said he couldn’t be sure. Johnson is also optimistic — even about finding space. He compared the issue to a young couple having children. “Before you have kids, you think to yourself, ‘How am I going to find time?’” he said. “But you find time.” Johnson said he is certain there is plenty of support for the program. “It’s only a matter of time,” he said. Email Nick Veronin at nveronin@mv-voice.com work together on larger group projects, McNamee explained. At Crittenden, the district is planning to rebuild the entire wing currently housing the library and several classrooms — razing the existing structure and building a new, modern library and set of classrooms in the center of the campus, McNamee said. And, just like at Graham, the plan is to build a shared space with the new classrooms. The classrooms and library will surround a central quad, McName said. The first board meeting to discuss the Measure G projects is scheduled for March 6 at 7 p.m. in the MVWSD Board Room, at 705-A San Pierre Way — the same time and place as the March 20 meeting when the board is scheduled to vote on the plans. The community meeting is scheduled for March 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the Theuerkauf Elementary School Multi-Use Room, located at 1625 San Luis Ave. V

and where she’s seen rents of $795 a month for a decent twobedroom apartment. Santiago has eyed homes there selling for only $80,000 — much cheaper than Santa Clara County, where the average selling price of a detached home recently topped $1 million. “We will never be able to buy a house in California,” she said. “To stay here, we will need $48,000 a year for all our expenses. If we move to Washington we will only need $19,000 a year.” Mountain View residents should be concerned abut driving away residents like Nilda, said Ken Rosenberg, a financial advisor and City Council candidate who got to know Santiago as a fellow HRC member. “Losing a person like Nilda is a blow to Mountain View,” said Rosenberg. “We’re a losing a citizen who cares enough about our city to volunteer many hours. She has had fantastic ideas (on the HRC) and her comments have been constructive. She will be missed.” Santiago worked in child care for years and was the sort of person who helped others when no one else would, taking under her wing “kids and families who couldn’t find housing,” she said. Santiago suffers from a disorder called reflex sympathetic dystrophy. “I live with pain 24/7,” she said. “Helping other people kind of takes that out of my brain. I started helping people and that helped me.” She recalled that former city employee Blanco Cinco told her, “You know, you have that gift, why don’t you put in an application for the HRC?” She was selected and until last month,

this year, though it would mean more work. “It feels like the council is stepping away from the core concept because it feels like there’s 22 million square feet of space being built,” said council member Mike Kasperzak. “I think we’re here to reflect the community in some of the vision. But the how — that’s why we’ve got the experts. It troubles me when I hear us trying to micromanage the technical details for how you do this. Sometimes I feel like we’re second-guessing the people who do know. If we want to constrain the growth, that’s a policy decision and we can do that.”

advised the City Council on the city’s social issues. Santiago’s story is familiar to anyone who provides a service in Mountain View, from manual labor to teaching its students or putting out its fires. “Not everyone can have a highpaying job,” Rosenberg says. But many new tech-employed residents do and are displacing residents like Santiago. Apartments are being renovated all over the city to meet the demand of well-heeled tech employees, while housing construction has been slow to meet the demand. And though they express concern, City Council members seem powerless to stop the bleeding. The council’s answer to the problem — the city’s below market rate housing program — has yielded only 136 new homes in recent years for lower income residents, with 85 that still need to be built. Longtime resident Lenny Siegel says the city’s housing problem is the result of a failure in city planning. Mountain View has long had “too many jobs” and not enough homes, he says. The city’s current long-range plan-

ning efforts seem poised to make it worse. The council has been discussing the possibility of new office space for at least 25,000 new jobs by 2030, but fewer than 7,000 new homes, at most. Gone are the the days when someone like Santiago could find a decent apartment in Mountain View for $525 a month, as she did when she arrived in 1989 from Puerto Rico unable to speak English. While average rents may have nearly quadrupled, wages for most Mountain View employees have not. For Santiago, Mountain View’s housing crisis will no longer be a concern. She leaves at the end of February. Santiago said she’s already met several refugees from California in Bremerton, where she said she will welcome a much slower pace of living. And if current trends continue, other community-minded residents will follow suit. The city is losing “citizens who are contributing to Mountain View,” Rosenberg said. “We’re going to have to deal with that.”

Council member Ronit Bryant said she was uncomfortable with allowing eight-story buildings. “Some of our neighboring cities are building very tall buildings very densely. I don’t think we will ever compete with them,” Bryant said. “We have much less land and I’m not interested anyway.” Some computer renderings were created to show what six- and eight-story buildings might look like on Shoreline Boulevard. Bryant’s reaction: “What I wanted to see was a Stanford campus,” but instead she said there were “trees along the street and then just buildings and buildings and buildings and we’ve lost the character of North Bayshore. We are pushing for too much development.”

Looking into his “crystal ball,” Raimi said it was likely that the Microsoft campus would redevelop along Highway 101, given the age of the buildings, but as for the VTA bus yard next to it, “I doubt it’s changing.” “If you are going to leave eight stories anywhere, I’d say it’s the gateway parcels,” Raimi said. “Allowing eight-story buildings does allow some creativity and flexibility to create character and a place (along with) iconic buildings.” “You can have a great area with eight-story buildings, you can have a great area without eightstory buildings,” Raimi said. “It constrains what designers can do, but they’ll work with it.”

fast enough to download a feature-length move in under two minutes, though at a price. Council members thanked Google for the gift of WiFi to the city, even though some residents have been expressing irritation at its unreliability, with one resident even calling it a “colossal joke on Mountain View” after it took a major turn for the worse in 2012, when usage had grown to 25,000 unique users a month. Many residents had bought special signal repeaters to bring the network indoors. “You wanted the data and we got the WiFi, and I think it was great,” said council member Jac Siegel of the 2006 Google WiFi network, though he did not say what sort of data he was referring to. “It was an experiment. You got enough data to push things forward.” The $500,000 grant is apparently part of the deal because Google no longer wanted to be responsible for maintaining the WiFi system it had originally installed in city buildings, such as the library, where user complaints were common. “They are not interested in maintaining or operating those systems,” in city buildings, said City Manager Dan Rich. A city staff report added, “Google had also offered a hot spot for Rengstorff Park, but for technical reasons, that service will be covered by a grant to the city.” The new downtown WiFi system will cover 18 city blocks shown on a map to City Council members, roughly bordered by

the edges of the train station to the north, El Camino Real to the south, Hope Street to the east and Franklin Street to the west. Service will probably “bleed” into surrounding areas, Rich said. It was also stressed that this WiFi network is meant for outdoor use only, just like the 2006 network was. Council member Margaret Abe-Koga noted the “customer

It is already being offered in Provo, Utah and Kansas City, where 1 gigabit speeds — “100 times faster than average” — cost $70 a month and a service comparable to current average speeds is free, with a one time construction fee of up to $300. “We are actually becoming a third world country in terms of Internet,” said council member Mike Kasperzak. “In Sweden

Google’s Veronica Bell said there would be better support this time around. “It was the first time any company has ever tried anything like that,” said Bell on Tuesday about the 2006 Google Wifi network. “This time we have a product group devoted to this. There will be some support, it will show up on the web page wifi.google. com.” Council members also discussed the possibility of Google Fiber coming to Mountain View, which they learned would be treated like any other utility wanting to run lines under the city’s

Google makes amends for failing WiFi

I Use serif headline

f ever there was a way into this tech-driven city’s heart, the gift of lightning-fast Internet connections has to be high on the list, and Google knows it. That undoubtedly is why Mountain View’s signature company made a formal offer last week to provide Use edittext for the text ultra-fast free wireless Internet along the Castro Street corridor and promised to install a network of even faster connections under the city’s neighborhood streets. All of this was promised in an announcement by Google and City Manager Dan Rich that, if carried out, will install miles of fiber-optic cable throughout the city’s 12 square miles. In addition, Google also said it will provide the city a $500,000-grant to fund technology that is accessible to the public, presumably to make up for the funds the city spent recently to install WiFi at City Hall. The fiber-optic cable will allow data to travel at the speed of light, or in technical terms, 1,024 megabits (1 gigabit) per second, which is said to be 100 times faster than average and is fast enough to download an entire movie in less than two minutes. The entire package would cost the company millions of dollars and make Mountain View one of 34 cities nationwide selected as test locations for Google fiber. Other California cities include Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale and Santa Clara. The company’s chief financial officer said that the fiber initiative is “not a hobby� for Google, which he thinks will be profitable. In Provo, Utah and Kansas City, sites of the initial roll-out, speeds of 1 gigabit per second costs $70 a month, while current average broadband speed is free, although a one-time “construction fee� can be up to $300.

TECH WORKER OPTION: LIGHT RAIL TO SAN JOSE Each morning I see the white buses, full of Google employees driving south on 101 and each evening I see them returning to San Francisco. Wouldn’t it be great if instead of taking the buses, they could take Caltrain (electrification would help) to Mountain View and then transfer to Light Rail to North Bayshore? Google, Intuit, and Microsoft employees living from San Francisco to Gilroy would benefit. San Jose is planning to build 30,000 housing units, approximately equal to all of Mountain View’s current housing units, in North San Jose, near the Light Rail Line, which goes along Tasman, First Street and Capitol Avenue. BART will connect to Light Rail at the VTA Montague Light Rail station. East Bay employees of North Bayshore companies will have a good link. How do we get this accomplished? Who will pay for it?

When Stanford University wanted to add buildings, Palo Alto said O.K., but you can’t add automobile trips. Stanford made it happen. When Facebook moved to Menlo Park, the City Council put a cap on single occupant automobile trips. Facebook worked at it and met the goal. Mountain View City Council needs to make Google an offer that they can’t refuse. Mountain View will approve the eight-story office buildings along 101 for their planned 15,000 to 20,000 additional jobs, if, and only if, Google mitigates the traffic impact by funding the Light Rail extension. It is time for our City Council to be bold. Konrad Sosnow Trophy Drive

CITY A TOUGH PLACE FOR LOW-WAGE WORKERS People who work full-time should not have to live in Continued on next page

As far as inexpensive Internet connections go, such a system would replace the now woefully inadequate WiFi rolled out with much fanfare by Google in 2006, which for its time was a remarkable network that provided free WiFi service to most Mountain View neighborhoods. The line-of-sight signal came from 500 WiFi nodes installed on city-owned light poles, creating a system that was designed to be available throughout the city. Although residents needed to install amplifiers to boost the signal to bring it indoors, the number of unique users grew to 25,000 a month in 2012, when the service began to have serious issues. Google claimed that the Internet outgrew the system, due largely to streaming movies and other major download pressures. As Google’s gift began to turn sour, residents complained of spotty or nonexistent service. Efforts by the company to make repairs did not help and in recent years the system proved to be more of a liability for Google than the gift the company had hoped it would be. Now the plan is to quickly install a new WiFi system downtown and soon after, phase out the old WiFi service, after giving 60 days’ notice to its remaining customers. Google Fiber is more than a year away, so in some parts of Mountain View residents will have to go back to providing their own WiFi service with providers like AT&T and Comcast. Such a fiber network will be a force for other Internet service providers to contend with, or be left in the dust. Google may have started out slowly with WiFi nodes mounted on light poles, but if the company’s plans are realized, it could wind up bringing Mountain View the fastest access to the Internet available anywhere in the country.

poverty. I participated in the Feb. 19 march downtown to protest income inequality and to support an increase in the minimum wage — currently $8 per hour and going up to $9 in July statewide. Here are some surprising facts I learned: ■ 35 is the average age of the workers who’d get raises; ■ The cost of living in our area is 56 percent above the national average, plus rents have been rising rapidly in recent months. I have lived in Mountain View almost 40 years and have always appreciated the social and economic diversity in our community. We are in danger of losing that balance if we don’t take action to help the working poor in our midst. Gail Nyhan Barbara Avenue

LIKED REPORT ON RAGING GRANNIES I depend on your weekly print edition for local news. I am so proud of you for your report last week on the Raging Grannies’ protest of Google funding of the American Legislative Exchange Council. I also enjoyed your coverage

of Paul George and the Peninsula Peace and Justice Center and Josh Wolf for championing a higher minimum wage for city workers. And of Josh Wolf again for standing up to the supporters of the NRA. It gives us hope to know that we have courageous citizens to rally our energies against the dark, anti-democratic forces that are besieging us at every turn. Please keep up the good work and do more in-depth reporting about these movements. Keep real journalism alive in Mountain View. Denny Petrosian San Ramon Avenue

ECR PLAN VIOLATES GUIDING PRINCIPLES Thank you for printing the image of the El Camino Real precise plan on a recent cover of the Voice. It reveals that the City Council is not adhering to its own guiding principles for redevelopment, such as “a graceful transition to neighborhoods” and their other claim, that they will be building only low-density projects in very shallow lots. Yet the diagram you published reveals major contradictions to this.

For example: look at the block where Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi Too Restaurant is located. This extremely popular icon sits on a very shallow lot that is immediately adjacent to residences of no more than one or two stories. Yet the diagram illustrates this is designated to be “high density.” That means way too many stories against the gray area immediately adjacent, which represents the lowest height of construction. The entire block is designated to go high density, but that is certainly not what citizens at the recent community meeting voiced that they wanted. Not at all. And who would want to mess with Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi Too? Linda Curtis Cuesta Park neighborhood

PALO ALTO BREWING COMPANY AND PHILZ COFFEE TEAM UP TO MAKE COOL BEANZ, A COFFEE-FLAVORED PORTER Story by Elena Kadvany // Photos by Veronica Weber

T

he romantic adage “we go together like peanut butter and jelly” should be amended to “we go together like coffee and beer.” Though the pairing might seem unusual, the bitterness of coffee beans complements the deep roasted flavors of darker beers like stouts, porters and lagers in a unique palate-pleasing way. Two local businesses — Palo Alto Brewing Company and Philz Coffee — recognized the complementary nature of these two drinks a few years ago. They teamed up to produce Cool Beanz, a porter brewed with Philz’s “Philtered Soul” medium-dark roast coffee beans. “I’m a fan of coffee beers in general,” said Palo Alto Brewing owner Kasim Syed. “I like that style. But the majority of coffee beers in the market tend to be usually really strong, high alcohol, like imperial coffee stouts, imperial coffee porter. “It makes it hard to drink a lot of them. So I wanted to do something that was a little more sessionable,” Cool Beanz is a coffee flavored porter created out of a collaboration between the Palo Alto Brewing Company and Philz Coffee.

Cool Beanz has a low alcohol by volume (ABV) of 6 percent, compared to other coffee beers that hover around 9 to 10 percent. It’s also caffeinated. “For me, it’s a perfect kind of camping beer,” Syed said. “You wake up in the morning and you can just crack one of these. It’s really smooth, easy to drink, light roast, mostly coming from the malts — a little maybe from the coffee itself because that one has a medium roast on it.” Syed, a Palo Alto native, approached Philz CEO Jacob Jaber in 2012 with the idea for a coffee-beer collaboration. Syed grew up very close to Philz’s first Palo Alto location on Middlefield Road and Loma Verde Avenue. After some discussion — and tastings, of course — they decided to brew with “Philtered Soul” for its hazelnut flavoring, Syed said. The brewing process isn’t any different when making a coffee beer, but the end product’s flavor profile will vary depending on when the beans are added in, Syed explained. “You can put the beer in the Continued on next page

mash, which is the start of (the brewing process). You can put it in during the boil. What we do is we put it in during the secondary fermentation. It’s kind of like cold-steeping it because we didn’t want to get any of the bitterness out of the coffee that might come when it reacts with the hot water.” Though this makes for a “coffee-forward” beer, Syed said he is aiming for high “sessionability.” “If you’re at the pub, you can have a couple pints and you don’t have to worry about it. Whereas a lot of the other ones ... you enjoy that flavor but you can’t have more than one.” This isn’t just a company line. Take it from this reporter, someone who’s almost completely averse to darker beers: Cool Beanz is truly smoother and easier to drink — without sacrificing any flavor — than most of its porter counterparts. The coffee flavor doesn’t come on too strong either, but just enough to feel like the drink is giving a twofor-one kick. Jaber — more of a beans than brews aficionado — admitted he’s “not even a big fan of beer,” but said he enjoys Cool Beanz. “I’m no expert by any means,

Cool Beanz has a lower alcohol content than similar brews.

but you don’t need to be an expert to know if something’s good or not,” he said. Bottles of Cool Beanz are sold at Mollie Stones, Piazzas Fine Foods and Whole Foods in Palo Alto; Ava’s Downtown Market & Deli and Jane’s Beer Store in Mountain View and The Willows Market in Menlo Park, and it’s on tap at the Rose & Crown in downtown Palo Alto.

NMOVIEREVIEW

THE WIND RISES---1/2 (Century 16) “All I wanted to do was to make something beautiful.” So said aeronautical engineer Jiro Horikoshi, whose Mitsubishi A5M and A6M Zero served the Empire of Japan during WWII. Amid some controversy, living-legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki has written and directed his own latest “something beautiful,” this one a hand-drawn fantasia about Horikoshi: “The Wind Rises.” The title, borrowed from a Hori Tatsuo novel, alludes to a line from a Paul Valéry poem: “The wind is rising! We must try to live!” Life is too short not to take every opportunity, in one’s vocational and romantic callings, and thusly Miyazaki frames his heavily fictionalized take on Horikoshi. Horikoshi (voiced in the Englishlanguage version by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) literally dreams of airplanes, inspired by Italian engineer Count Gianni Caproni (Stanley Tucci). Horikoshi sets out to study engineering and land a job at an airplane manufacturer that will build his planes. On this path, he also encounters a young woman named Naoko (Emily Blunt), who becomes his muse. Naoko’s struggle with tuberculosis informs one of the story’s deep-set ironies: In her devotion, Naoko insists upon Horikoshi achieving his dreams of flight, but in the process, the couple loses valuable time to spend with each other. When lives are accounted in the end, Horikoshi and Miyazaki must ask, was it all worth it? Did this (fictionalized) Horikoshi make the right choice to achieve his dream, no matter the cost to others? “The Wind Rises” has a pastel-pastoral quality that romanticizes, with Impressionist stylings, the Quixotic pursuit of invention. Like much Japanese animation of Miyazaki’s generation, the film is sentimental and sweet, but as much as it deeply understands the artistic mindset of a driven creator, it also acknowledges the darker implications of a genius’ tunnel vision. Horikoshi has literal nearsightedness that also serves as a metaphor for what enables him to block out doubt and achieve success while willfully ignoring moral questions. Like many Studio Ghibli productions, “The Wind Rises” has gotten the red-carpet treatment from stateside distributor Disney (under its adult-skewing Touchstone Pictures banner), including seven-time Oscar winner Gary Rydstrom to direct the English version. Animation notwithstanding, the audience for “The Wind Rises” isn’t wee, though middle-schoolers willing to roll with its longueurs and provocations will be primed for an interesting post-matinee discussion with parents. “The Wind Rises” is in some ways Miyazaki’s most grounded film. Since the ground is the story’s real enemy, established in part by the fearsome 1923 Kanto quake, the escapist rarity of flight gives it all the more power. Much of the film concerns the plodding work — and gentle, if not delicate, soul — required to achieve beauty, another way in which “The Wind Rises,” possibly Miyazaki’s swan song, skews to stealth autobiography. Rated PG-13 for some disturbing images and smoking. Two hours, six minutes. minutes. — Peter Canavese

INVENTORY

IS LOW!

Historically the beginning of the year means that available home inventory in the Bay Area are low. This year, however, there is an all time low. We are seeing properties being sold quickly, with multiple offers, and well over the asking price. This is happening simply because the demand is currently higher than the supply. Will this last forever? Probably not. For that reason, if you are considering selling your home this year, but wanted to wait, now might be the perfect time to reconsider, and put your home on the market. Please contact me today if you would like to discuss the market in your neighborhood and if it is the right time to sell for you.
