Council shifts gears on San Antonio plan HOUSING A HIGHER PRIORITY IN SHOPPING CENTER AREA By Kevin Forestieri



DOWN TO EARTH EXHIBIT What do they get up to at NASA Ames? A window into the workings of the Moffett-based research center can be found in downtown Mountain View this month. Exhibits popped up in local businesses, including this space suit, part of a space biosciences display hosted by Empire Vintage Clothing on Villa Street. For more on the exhibit, go to page 8.

fter sharp public opposition delayed phase two of Merlone Geier’s Village at San Antonio Center project last week, City Council members showed signs on Tuesday of making housing a higher priority in the San Antonio shopping center area. At the study session meeting in the Mountain View Senior Center on July 8, council members came to a rough consensus that the San Antonio precise plan should put more emphasis on a mix of housing and retail in the San Antonio shopping center, with limited exceptions for small office space and fewer restrictions on office space north of California Street.

The precise plan is a document guiding future development in the area, which is southeast of the corner of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road and includes the San Antonio shopping center. Mayor Chris Clark said city staff was directed to expand areas where housing would be allowed, and make an overall reduction in office space in the San Antonio precise plan. Clark said although the city cannot require developers to build affordable housing, the wording in the precise plan will emphasize that they want a range of housing options. Support for more housing by council members was an aboutface from the February study sesSee SAN ANTONIO, page 9



t didn’t last long. The lastminute deal announced July 1 between developer Merlone Geier and Milk Pail Market owner Steve Rasmussen to save the popular European-style market, Merlone Geier was rescinded just two days later, putting the future of the Milk Pail in jeopardy. The deal would have allocated 11 additional parking spaces at the San Antonio shopping center to the Milk Pail, enough to meet city requirements for the Milk Pail market to stay in business past 2016, when its current parking agreement expires. The deal was revoked following the July 1 City Council meeting, where the council voted 6-0 in


favor of delaying the second phase of Merlone Geier’s Village at San Antonio Center development, with John Inks recused. The council asked for the project to include 150 housing units in place of one of the two office buildings proposed. In a revocation notice to Rasmussen by Michael Grehl of Merlone Geier, it said one of the conditions of the agreement was that phase two be approved on July 1. In an email to the City Council, Rasmussen said there was a “false illusion” in the community that the Milk Pail has an amended parking license that would allow it to stay in business beyond 2016. Rasmussen said the confusion

may be because everything was decided so quickly leading up to the July 1 meeting. “It was all last-minute stuff,” Rasmussen said. “A lot of stuff happened in the meeting.” When reached by phone, Merlone Geier spokesman Ron Heckman declined to comment, and no one else representing the developer was immediately available to answer questions. While the July 1 deal is now history, Rasmussen said he and Merlone Geier made pretty good progress, and there’s still a possibility of a long-term solution. He said he expects there will be a follow-up with the developer for a deal in the near future. Lenny Siegel of the Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View



A shopper makes her selections at the Milk Pail Market. Relief over a parking agreement to keep the market in business was short-lived, as it was rescinded by the developer two days later.

called the deal with the Milk Pail political posturing by Merlone Geier to try to get the phase two development of the San Antonio shopping center passed by the City Council that night. He said Merlone Geier representatives must have thought that attaching the Milk

Pail deal would garner enough council member votes to pass. “To me, this letter was a political faux pas,” Siegal said. As proposed, phase two of the controversial development project includes two office buildings See MILK PAIL, page 13 EXPLORE THE NEW

BRAWL AT BAR Police arrested a man last Friday after he allegedly threw his bike lock at someone’s head and punched two patrons at the O’Malley’s Sports Pub on Old Middlefield Road. Brian Fabris, a 31-year-old Mountain View man, was kicked out of the bar and was not allowed back in. At around 12:01 a.m., Fabris allegedly threw his U-shaped bike lock at the victim, a 35-year-old Santa Clara man, missing his head by less than six inches, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police department. Fabris also reportedly punched the man in the face, and punched a 29-year-old Mountain View man in the face as well. Fabris was arrested and booked into San Jose Main Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery. —Kevin Forestieri

Officers from 13 county law enforcement agencies worked from 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 4 through 12 a.m. Monday July 7 as part of a crackdown on driving while intoxicated over the course of Independence Day weekend. Public Information Officer Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup said that fewer arrests were made this year than in previous years. “I think that may be in part that it was only a three-day enforcement period, not four days like last year,” Stenderup said in an email. No arrests were reported in Mountain View or by Mountain View police officers over the course of the weekend. The California Highway Patrol reported that the Bay Area had no fatal accidents over the holiday weekend. The total number of arrests is provisional, as not every agency has reported all its arrests, Stenderup said.

Standoff with armed man ends peacefully By Kevin Forestieri


olice safely detained an armed and reportedly suicidal man after he barricaded himself in his Mountain View apartment on July 2, causing a standoff that lasted more than five hours. The Mountain View Police Department’s Crisis Negotiation Team diffused the tense situation at 6:20 p.m. when they convinced the man it was in his best interest to put down the gun and come with police,

according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department. The situation began at about 12:51 p.m., when a neighbor of the 46-year-old, whose name has not been released, called authorities to request a welfare check for the man, who reportedly lives in an apartment on the 1000 block of Williams Way. Prior to arriving, police learned that the man was possibly suicidal and might be armed, Jaeger said. Police communicated via

phone with the man’s 14-yearold daughter, who was in the apartment, and were able to get her out of the building safely. The man was uncooperative and came out of the apartment with a knife, and later produced a handgun and threatened to kill himself, according to Jaeger. Police pulled back and requested assistance, and a number of local emergency agencies arrived to the scene, See STANDOFF, page 13

Council OKs eminent domain to secure alley rights By Cooper Aspegren


embers of the Mountain View City Council unanimously approved the use of eminent domain to get themselves out of a quandary caused when they unwittingly approved the sale of an alley that was essentially given to a group of landowners in 1904. In December, the City Council approved the sale of a portion of Washington Alley to Prometheus Real Estate Group, developers of a 184-unit apartment complex on a portion of the alley and the south end of Stierlin Road. That

sale was recently foiled when city officials learned that a map dated September 28, 1904 of the “Mockbee and Weilheimer” additions to Mountain View granted access rights to the area’s streets and alleys to the property owners in the area. The city apparently neglected to remove the rights from Washington Alley when it was done for other streets in the area. The City Council on July 1 voted to use eminent domain to buy those access rights from 90 property owners, including 29 absentee owners. An independent real estate appraiser

valued the easement rights to be $1,000, or approximately $11.63 per owner. On May 30, the city government sent letters offering $25 to residents willing to cede their easement rights. Council member John Inks, who voted in favor of using eminent domain, noted at the meeting that he opposed the council’s decision in April 2013 to close the Central Expressway on-ramp at the end of Stierlin Road nearby the apartment construction site, and that he usually would be against using eminent domain. See EMINENT DOMAIN, page 13

Police nab bank robbing suspect By Kevin Forestieri


olice arrested a man suspected of shoplifting at a CVS Pharmacy Tuesday whom they believe is the same malodorous man who robbed a bank last week. Officers had asked for the public’s help in finding the alleged bank robber who was described as having a strong body odor. William Brackin, a 45-year-old transient, was allegedly found stealing cigarettes at the CVS Pharmacy at 850 California St. and was spotted by a police officer as he was leaving the store,

than its individual components, was important in bringing both sides together and resolving past issues. She said there was a lot of give-and-take and neither side got everything they wanted, with concessions made on both sides. Logan said one of the easiest terms for BCS and LASD to agree on was ending litigation. “Phasing out litigation was

according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department. A witness described Brackin’s appearance to a police officer, and the description matched that of the man who robbed the Bank of America branch on Castro Street on July 1. At least five police officers surrounded the area and arrested Brackin on Castro Street at around 11 a.m. July 8 in front of Art Frame Studio and Easy Foods Company. Jaeger said Brackin was positively identified as a suspect for the CVS shoplifting, and posi-

tively identified as a suspect in the July 1 robbery. Brackin allegedly stole $1,300 in cash from the Bank of America when he handed the cashier a “demand note” and made away with the money without the use of a weapon. Witnesses said the man had a strong odor that indicated he hadn’t showered in a long time. Brackin was scheduled to be transported to the San Jose Main Jail and booked on charges of robbery and petty theft with a prior. Email Kevin Forestieri at

mutual, nobody wants to keep spending millions on legal fees,” Logan said. John Phelps, chairman of the BCS board, declined to comment on any individual component of the agreement, and said he’ll let the wording in the document speak for itself. He said the draft was the result of a concerted effort and commitment by both BCS and the school district representatives. “A lot of hard work went into to this, with consistent goals for both sides,” Phelps said.

Joe Seither, a member of the LASD Citizens’ Advisory Committee for Finance and a member of the Huttlinger Alliance for Education, said the agreement draft took him by surprise. He the outcome was much better than past mediation, and the “breadth” of the agreement is good. “I’m very encouraged, and I think it’s a great step forward,” Seither said. Like Logan, Seither was happy to see big concessions from both sides, including the decision for

Bullis to end litigation against the district. “The charter school dropping litigation is huge,” Seither said. “They have a very strong legal team and budget, and it’s a big deal for them to stand down legally.” The agreement also says BCS and LASD will cooperate to place a bond measure on the November 2014 ballot that would help finance more district school facilities to accommodate increasing enrollment for both parties.


The five-year agreement will take the place of annual facilities use agreements, which has caused strife in the past. A disagreement over last year’s agreement led to the school district changing the locks on charter school classrooms at Blach for 10 days, causing parent and teacher protests. But with a five-year plan, both sides agree that there should be fewer problems. Phelps said the long-term plan would “alleviate a burden on both parties, and place more focus on students.”

Don’t leave your computer at home, kids ALL LAHS STUDENTS REQUIRED TO BRING A LAPTOP TO SCHOOL THIS FALL By Kevin Forestieri


long with pencils, pens and notebooks, students at Los Altos High School need to add something else to their list of school supplies: a laptop. Los Altos high is bolstering its use of technology in the classroom, and starting this fall, all students will be expected to have a device comparable to a laptop for class activities. The new requirement is called the “Bring Your Own Device” policy, and has been in the works for about a year, according to Galen Rosenberg, assistant vice principal at LAHS. He said they looked at two different schools — Nortre Dame High School in San Jose and James Logan High School in Union City — that implemented a similar BYOD policy to see what works. Nortre Dame is a private, Catholic girls’ school that requires students to bring a device from home, and does not provide laptops for students who do not have one or can’t afford one. Rosenberg said it’s easy to implement device policies at private schools

that can just force everyone to go out and buy a laptop. Logan, on the other hand, is a public school that plans to provide devices for every student at the school. It’s not fully implemented yet, but Rosenberg said a “section” of their student body now has school-provided devices. Between the two extremes — buying laptops for everyone or forcing everyone to buy their own — Los Altos High School is going for somewhere in the middle. Rosenberg said he estimates about half of the students will bring a device from home to use at school, and the other half will need devices provided by the school. So to kick off the policy, the school will buy about 800 Chromebooks, a Google device similar to a laptop, for the roughly 1,800 students attending LAHS this fall. Los Altos High School will use grant money from Google and the MVLA High School Foundation to fund the new policy. Most of the money will go into purchasing hundreds of Chromebooks. Not any old device will do, though. The policy requires that

the device have at least an 11-inch screen, and cannot be a iPad or other tablet device. Rosenberg said things like the iPad, which can be used for some classroom activities, has a limited capacity for creating and sharing documents through the cloud — a key component to the BYOD policy. He said with laptops, students will be able to easily share created media, audio and video content with each other. Chromebooks will be checked out at the beginning of the year, similar to a textbook, and will be returned at the end of the school year. LAHS is also discussing the possibility that students could rent a laptop at the beginning of freshman year and keep it until graduation. Rosenberg said the requirement

may seem strange or unreasonable to people who aren’t familiar with today’s technology, but cloud computing and a personal digital devices are the norm in college and many high schools, and the price point —about $225 per Chromebook — is feasible. He said most students will be ready for the school-wide tech upgrade, and already use devices to augment their schoolwork. “This is where kids are gonna be if they aren’t already,” Rosenberg said. “Some teachers already know what they’re going to do with the devices.” In a document shared with LAHS staff titled “Learning in the Cloud: BYOD Rationale,” school administrators said they looked at the plethora of possible problems that could come up with a BYOD policy. Things like lost or broken devices, maintenance, theft, proper use and supervision were all taken into consideration, and found to be

“surmountable” problems and a worthwhile trade-off. Rosenberg said less than 10 percent of other student bodies had problems with devices, and there’s a tendency to think losing or damaging a Chromebook is much different than losing or damaging other school supplies. He said if students lose their jerseys, a textbook or even a helmet, those can add up to a few hundred dollars as well. One perk to the new device policy is that everyone, wealthy or not, will have access to a personal digital device as a school resource. Rosenberg said starting next year, every student will be on even footing. He said there will be some envy when students bring in their fancy computers, and there’s no way to account for inequity in Internet access, but the BYOD policy is a good start. “In terms of equity, this is a huge step forward,” Rosenberg said.

Several complicated gadgets sit behind the window at the Odd Fellows Hall at Castro and Villa streets for the CheMin Instrument display. Short for chemistry and minerology, CheMin instruments use x-ray diffraction to let researchers at NASA Ames peer into the past and see what ancient Martian environments were like — and maybe find clues of life on Mars. CheMin One, designed in 1991, is about the size of a breadbox because it had to fit inside Curiosity, the Mars rover. According to the display, it took 20 years of technological development to bring CheMin One down from the size of a large cabinet to its current dimensions.











sion, where they opposed housing as a priority in the San Antonio area. Council member Mike Kasperzak said the council is taking a step back from the direction they were going in February. “We seriously de-emphasized housing in February, and the decision we’re trying to come up with now is to de-emphasize retail or office in favor of housing,” Kasperzak said. Council member Ronit Bryant said the shift in priorities comes from the community feedback, which calls for a better balance between newly developed jobs and housing in Mountain View. The San Antonio precise plan, as proposed last month, would allow for 879,000 square feet of office space in the San Antonio shopping center and surrounding blocks. This would create anywhere from 4,395 to 5,860 jobs, but only 1,575 homes. “What we heard really clearly from the community is we’re building enough office space,” Bryant said. “We need to leave it flexible, and I would like to put housing and retail mixed use in and encourage restrictions on office.” This mixed use of residential and retail might include buildings with housing units on floors above retail stores. Kasperzak did voice some concern that maintaining a housing-retail proportion might make it difficult for developers in the area. “My concern is that if retail establishments want to build a new store, like a Kohl’s, if it makes

environmental impact analysis, forcing city staff to revisit the precise plan overall. City planner Rebecca Shapiro said a change in the environmental analysis would delay phase two planning beyond the end of the year, but working within the boundaries is a “workable plan.” Clark said there’s plenty of leeway in the environmental impact report (EIR), and that the threshold is around 10 times the previously proposed housing numbers. He said reaching the 1,900-some housing unit cap would take years, and a new environmental impact analysis could be done later down the road to avoid delaying current plans. “I think the numbers are okay from an EIR perspective,” Clark said. “Council should decide how much they should push for housing.” Lenny Siegel and other members of the Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View attended the meeting. The group spearheaded the community outcry for a balanced jobs-housing ratio in the San Antonio Precise Plan and threatened to put a referendum on the ballot if the plan was approved as-is. Siegel said the council has come a long way in responding to the community and he’s pleased with their progress, but they still have further to go. He said he was disappointed that the council member’s discussion was very narrow, and didn’t reference many of the concerns from the public. “They missed the whole point in trying to create a livable community,” Seigel said. Siegel said that “livable com-

it kind of complicated for developers who know they need to deal with this residential proportion requirement,” Kasperzak said. Bryant said that the current San Antonio plan lacks focus, and though the public support has been in favor of more housing over office space, Bryant said it’s important to remember it is a “shopping” center. “We’re just all over the place with the precise plan,” Bryant said. “If we had a picture of what we wanted it to look like, it would be better. Bryant suggested a scenario where the shopping center would have retail, a range of different housing options and limited office space. “I think we could come up with something very interesting,” Bryant said. Clark said he supported limited options for office space in the mixed residential and retail areas of the shopping center, and said restricting the area with no wiggle room for small offices sounded like an onerous policy. “We should make sure there’s no unintended consequences where we can’t allow a small, 20,000 or 30,000 (square foot) office space in an area of mixeduse,” Clark said. Along with finding ways to pinpoint lower office space in the plan, council members considered “phasing” options, where office space could be capped at a certain square footage until more retail and residential development gets added. There were some initial concerns that the additional housing in the precise plan could go beyond the threshold of the

munity” should include a neighborhood school — something that was not mentioned once at the study session meeting Tuesday. Seigel said a school in the San Antonio precise plan area makes sense from the point of view of people in the area who want to live in a family community, and it makes sense from the point of view of traffic. Siegel said council members need to consider family-friendly housing, and that so far the housing designed in the San Antonio area has discouraged kids.

“Even young people are speaking out,” Siegel said. “They want to settle down in the area and have a family, and solving the housing problem isn’t just the number of units.” Clark said a new draft of the plan with council member feedback will be available in September, and the City Council will likely have another study session on the draft. Council members are slated to vote on the new draft by the end of this year. Email Kevin Forestieri at

Community connections make theater work STAGE COMPANY THEATREWORKS THRIVES ON SILICON VALLEY CULTURE By Nick Veronin

Inspirations a guide to the spiritual community LOS ALTOS LUTHERAN Bringing God’s Love and Hope to All


hile many of the organizations putting the “silicon” in Silicon Valley have rocketed out of the recession, leaving a trail of highly paid tech workers and higher rents in their wake, other sectors of the local economy are still fighting their way back from the 2008 collapse, and some arts organizations have not been able to survive. The New York City Opera was forced to close its doors in 2013, and the San Jose Repertory Theatre filed for bankruptcy just weeks ago. However, TheatreWorks, the third-largest theater company in the Bay Area continues to soldier on. Robert Kelley, founder and artistic director of TheatreWorks thinks his company has been able to weather the storm because of its deep connection to Palo Alto, where it is based, and the surrounding area. TheatreWorks alternates its productions between the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts and the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto. “I’m very much a part of this area, this region,” Kelley says. “I grew up here. All of my experiences in the theater were here — both at the Children’s Theatre, the Lucie Stern and at Stanford. I feel that there’s a real strong connection between TheatreWorks and the community, as a result. And the values of this community are represented on our stage.” Kelley’s local upbringing is not the only reason his organization has become so intertwined with Silicon Valley. The connection TheatreWorks shares with the Midpeninsula and the South Bay were hard won over years of direct outreach through programs and initiatives aimed at encouraging the creation of new theatrical work, because ultimately, as Kelley sees it, that is where the future of the theater lies. Kelley says he started TheatreWorks back in 1970 with the idea that “the art of creating, not just performing” would be heavily emphasized. Indeed, the company’s first production, “Popcorn,” was written and produced locally and was about local issues, Kelley says. Since then, the company has grown from a grassroots community theater, to the premier stage company in Silicon Valley and is now nationally recognized both for the high caliber of its professional productions, as well as for its stellar original works and world premiers — such as the play that will lead off the

Megan McGinnis, Hayden Tee, Colin Hanlon, and Riley Krull perform a sing-through of “Being Earnest” at the 2012 New Works Festival. The show had its world premiere at TheatreWorks in 2013.

company’s 45th season. When the curtains part at the Lucie Stern Theatre this week, the audience gathered in the Palo Alto hall will be the first to take in the bittersweet dramedy, “The Great Pretender,” in its fully realized form. However, it’s quite possible that some who plan to attend the first preview performance of the production on July 9 already witnessed some version of the play last summer, when its director and writer, David West Read, was working out the kinks on the very same stage, at TheatreWorks’ 12th annual New Works Festival. Kelley launched the New Works Festival during the company’s 2001-02 season. It functions as an extensive play and musical workshop, which affords the creators of five nascent productions the opportunity to have their plays and musicals read before a live audience, so that they may see what works, what doesn’t and get direct feedback from the theatergoers so that they might improve their productions. Read is originally from Toronto and has been living in New York for most of the past six years working in theater. He was drawn to the New Works Festival for the opportunity it would afford him to engage directly with a trial audience. “I had a great experience doing the New Works Festival,” Read says. “I think what sets the New Works Festival apart is that you get a number of readings in front of a few hundred people. ... It’s a great opportunity to be in dialog with the audience and also make them a part of the development process.” Having conversations with audience members and seeing what is working and what isn’t was incredibly valuable, he says, especially when it came to writing jokes. When an audience doesn’t laugh, Read reasons, that means

it’s time to work on that joke. The Tony Award-winning musical “Memphis” is perhaps the highest-profile production to come out of the New Works Festival, where it saw its first live read in 2002 and its first proper staging through TheatreWorks in 2004. “There are parts of ‘Memphis’ that were changed and modified because of people right here,” Kelley says of the production. “I find that very exciting.” In addition to the New Works Festival, TheatreWorks encourages the creation of new theater in other ways, such as in its youth programs. Through various summer camps and other one-off events, such as the 24 Hour Play Festival, TheatreWorks encourages children from kindergarten through high school to pen and produce their own plays. “All our youth programs are based on the premise that doing new work is what the theater is about,” Kelley says, noting that one recent highlight in his professional life was seeing a group of kindergarten to fourthgraders produce a “hilarious” and “immensely creative” play. Kelley also says that Silicon Valley, with its do-it-yourself ethos, spirit of entrepreneurship and highly educated, cultured population has had a profound influence on TheatreWorks. The New Works Festival, he says, is reflective of the “underlying spirit of the Silicon Valley and what’s going on here. It’s just a sense of creativity done in collaboration. There is this very palpable sense that the audience is part of the process — because they are.” Kelley adds that the “professionalization” of the region has resulted in a population that expects “the highest quality of everything,” and TheatreWorks

LOCAL DIGITS FOR SOCIAL SERVICES OFFICE In an effort to reinforce its local, North County location, the Santa Clara County Social Service Agency (SSA) office has been given new telephone numbers with the 650 area code. The office, previously located on Moffett Boulevard, recently relocated to 1330 W. Middlefield Road after concerns that it would move to San Jose, making access difficult for the North County residents for whom the agency provides services. Supervisor Joe Simitian requested that the office be granted the 650 area code extensions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keeping local services truly local has been a priority for me from my first day in county office,â&#x20AC;? Simitian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know how important these programs are for many people in North County, notwithstanding its reputation as a prosperous place.â&#x20AC;?

s it election year politics, or can it be that the City Council is finally seeing the light regarding the destructive consequences of Mountain Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobs-to-housing imbalance? Whatever the case may be, council members took a welcome step in the right direction in delaying action on the proposal for phase two of the Village at San Antonio Center, indicating they want housing to be included. As desperation increases among residents unable to afford skyrocketing rent increases, would-be residents who work here canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find housing at all, and frustration mounts among locals trying to traverse gridlocked roadways. It is long past the time to get serious about this problem. Although some 350 apartments were included in phase one of the project, developer Merlone Geier proposed no housing at all for the second part of its project; the proposal calls for construction of two, six-story office buildings, 109,000 square feet of retail, a hotel and a movie theater, and multiple parking garages. Increasingly frustrated advocates of more housing in town have criticized the plan and threatened placing a referendum on the November ballot to overturn approval of a plan that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include housing. That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen because the council isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected to act on the proposal until after the mid-August deadline for putting a measure on that ballot. Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View, the advocacy group that is considering a referendum, would have to wait until next year to put the

question to voters, should the council approve the project as submitted. We hope that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be necessary, and that council members follow through on their implied commitment to require housing in phase two. Council commitment to solving the housing imbalance problem hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been apparent in recent years, with the council approving job-generating office projects, or zoning for such projects, at a rate that far outpaces the creation of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing capacity. According to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general plan, adopted in 2012, Mountain Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning allows for an estimated 36,000 new jobs, with up to 6.4 million square feet of new office space, but only 7,000 new homes, by 2030. Two years ago, a divided council voted against zoning for 1,100 new homes in North Bayshore, along Shoreline Boulevard between Highway 101 and Charleston Road. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home turf, and the tech giant supported the housing proposal, as did the Chamber of Commerce. The precise plan now being crafted for North Bayshore may allow office growth for as many as 20,000 new jobs at Google, LinkedIn and other firms, with no new housing in that area. At its July 1 meeting, a number of residents weary of the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to find solutions to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing crisis urged a housing requirement in phase two of the Village. Edie Keating of Peninsula Interfaith Action summed up the situation admirably: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great project; you need to make it morally right by substituting the office for housing.â&#x20AC;?

Who’s thinking about increased housing’s impact on schools? By Frank Verlot


read the Voice’s issue of July 4 regarding the Village at San Antonio Center development with interest. Agreed, Mountain View has a growing jobs-housing imbalance issue. But it also has a housing-schools imbalance that is equally, perhaps even more, urgent. Where exactly do the proponents of adding more housing in this increasingly dense and redeveloping part of Mountain View propose to school the kids of families moving into all those new large apartment/ condo complexes in this and nearby projects? This section of the city experiencing new highdensity redevelopment extends well beyond the Village. It encompasses the length of San Antonio between El Camino and Caltrain, extending several blocks east to Showers and west to Palo Alto on either side of San

Antonio. Multiple hundreds of new and under-construction housing units have been and continue to be added. This particular part of Mountain View lies within the Los Altos Elementary School District. The two nearest LASD schools, Santa Rita and Almond, which serve the children of this area, are already impacted and over-capacity (as is every one of the other six LASD schools). Getting to Santa Rita and Almond schools for Mountain View kids in this neighborhood entails risk and inconvenience. It means crossing El Camino twice each day, and walking considerable distances without school bus service — a considerable burden on their working parents. Adding ever more high-density housing in this north-of-El Camino neighborhood without adding a local neighborhood school to serve these kids shirks

responsibility. Unfortunately, MountainView seems to have side-stepped this issue. Was this need considered or even discussed by anybody in Mountain View? Lenny Siegel and his housing proponents? Planning staff and commission? City management and council? Developers? The Voice? Anyone? LASD, including Bullis Charter, does a great job educating Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills kids. But only Springer is located within the city of Mountain View. Mountain View needs to step up and work together with LASD, to help LASD find another suitable school location within this higher-growth part of the city. The burden of solving this evergrowing capacity issue should not fall on Los Altos alone. Frank Verlot is a former city councilman and mayor of Los Altos.

t was late. Lori Phillips was up working on her thesis, in the midst of getting her doctorate degree in immunology from Stanford University. But a half-joke, half-business idea she had been throwing around with friends — to create a gourmet version of Klondike’s classic Choco Taco frozen dessert and sell it out of a food truck — interrupted her thoughts. So she did what any rational person would do. She went on Amazon and purchased a waffle iron, and spent the next few months tinkering with waffle cone recipes to create the best possible version to roll up into a taco shell and stuff with ice cream. In April, Phillips’ idea became a reality when she launched Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos, peddling her carefully created, all-organic treats out of a cart, and eventually, a full-fledged food truck, around the Bay Area. For those who have missed out on the dessert Phillips is riffing on, Choco Tacos have three main components: a sweet waffle cone shell, vanilla ice cream and a chocolate-nut coating to top the whole thing off. Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos take that Left: Lori Phillips, owner of Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos, drizzles peanut butter sauce on one of her frozen treats.

Rockoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taco shells are made with wheat and barley that Phillips gets from a local farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market. The ice cream is organic, made locally by a Redwood City woman, and comes in a range of flavors beyond vanilla â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including chocolate, espresso, salted caramel, mint chip, strawberry, peanut butter and vegan chocolate chip. Flavors like strawberry are only offered when the ingredients are in season. The coating is made with chocolate from San Francisco luxury chocolate-maker TCHO. All coffee, chocolate and sugar is fair trade and everything is purchased as locally as possible, Phillips said. Customers can order any combination of flavors like salted caramel dipped in dark chocolate; espresso dipped in white chocolate or strawberry dipped in peanut butter, and add toppings like cocoa nibs, almonds, pistachios or even bacon. The tacos are made on the spot, something made possible through the increasingly popular use of liquid nitrogen, which allows for rapid freezing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ceiling is high,â&#x20AC;? she said.

“There are a lot of things that you can do with this idea.” Phillips seems like such a natural within the Bay Area sweets world that it’s hard to imagine her doing anything else. But the East Palo Alto resident is a neuro-scientist by training. Phillips grew up in Union City and got her undergraduate degree at the University of California at Santa Cruz, majoring

in neuroscience and minoring in chemistry. She came to Stanford to get her doctorate in immunology, spending six years working on stem cell transplantation for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. But she was drawn to entrepreneurship, and a Stanford business school crash course on all-things-startup roped her in. “So I just decided that I was just going to start a business myself,” she said. “And science businesses are exponentially more difficult

to start than food businesses. ... A food business was really easy for me to do on the budget that I had and the spare time that I had, which wasn’t much, while finishing up my PhD and writing my thesis. I was able to get together the idea and start working on the recipes.” Her goal was to make something delicious that people could also feel good about putting in their bodies, with ingredients they could trust. After buy-

ing the waffle iron that fateful night, she spent time tinkering with recipes for the waffle-taco shell, never abandoning her scientific tendencies. “Cooking is very similar to science,” she said. “You look at different protocols that are out there to do it; you decide on one, give it a try, tweak it. So that’s what I did with waffle cone recipes.” Once she perfected the recipe, she started making the tacos for friends and garnered enough support to purchase a cart. She started at the Palo Alto farmers market on Saturdays and eventually got into various foodie gatherings like Off the Grid at Fort Mason in San Francisco (Rocko’s is there every Friday evening) as well as Sunnyvale and Oakland’s Jack of All Trades Market. The Rocko’s Facebook page ( has updates on where to find the truck. This spring, she graduated to a white food truck with an outline of the face of Phillips’ dog, the maltese-chihuahua mix that is the company’s namesake, emblazoned on the side. The extra space means the menu addition of frozen bananas ($2), ice cream cake pops ($3, in flavors like red velvet, banana cake, devil’s food, tiramisu and vanilla), and coffee

and hot chocolate ($3). Tacos are $3.50 each, with chocolate dip included; toppings are an extra 50 to 75 cents. Though Phillips wants to keep the Rocko’s offerings simple as to not overwhelm customers, it’s clear she’s also eager to expand. She said she dreams of developing a chocolate flavored taco shell or a stroopwafel cone based on the Dutch dessert, a thin wafflecookie sandwich with a caramellike filling in the middle. She said she’d love to open a brick-andmortar shop, which would allow her wild, Choco Taco-fueled dreams to become reality. Elena Kadvany can be emailed at

Caesar, leader of the apes, in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


(Century 20, Century 16) “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is the latest in a series of modern Hollywood action reboots, which aim to transform a campy and droll movie into a gloomy and serious film. The Dark Knight trilogy helped set the precedent for this recent cinematic trend, as Christopher Nolan swapped out caricature villains with dubious motivations for twisted and tortured souls bent on revenge, and exchanged “Holy smokes, Batman!” exclamations with dark, philosophical orations. “Cloverfield” director Matt Reeves’ latest film, the second in a series of prequels to the 1968 classic “Planet of the Apes,” follows Nolan’s lead. In the original film, based off Pierre Boulle’s “La PlanËte des singes,” talking primates carry firearms, ride on horseback and appear in other scenarios designed to at least partially amuse viewers. In “Dawn,” we also see apes talk while carrying guns on horseback, but their glowering faces are menacing. Don’t think the film’s seriousness is a pitfall, however — it’s appropriate. The film envisions the breakout of a virus that ravages most of humanity and leaves survivors scattered and largely disconnected from each other. The virus results from a drug, designed to cure Alzheimer’s, that in 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is used to genetically enhance the intellect of apes that serve as

test subjects. The consequences of this drug are staggering. While a human community led by Dreyfus (Gary Oldman) lives within the ruins of San Francisco in near hopelessness, the apes enjoy near utopian prosperity under the unquestioned leadership of the first genetically modified simian, Caesar (Andy Serkis). When the two communities collide, the natural order comes under threat of even greater disruption. The film’s chief cinematic assets are its apes, portrayed by actors in motion capture suits. Serkis, perhaps most famous for his portrayal of Gollum in The Lord of the Rings films, earned Oscar hype for his performance in “Rise” and some believed his exclusion from the Best Supporting Actor category was a snub. Whether performance capture acting merits Academy Award consideration, the performers behind the apes all give compelling performances that contribute greatly to the story. Watching them hunt deer, fight grizzly bears and speak to each other in sign recalls the memory and appeal of silent films. The actors’ motions and gestures are supremely artful and New Zealand-based Weta Digital’s computer animation is as realistic as it gets. It is perhaps inevitable that the human characters lack much of the dimensionality and nuance given to their simian counterparts. One exception is Malcolm (Jason Clarke). In his first leading role since “Zero Dark Thirty,” Clarke exhibits big-screen charisma

as a survivor of the virus who must negotiate with the apes to bring electric power to the human community. The fact that his character — and Caesar, for that matter — possesses the name of two Shakespearean characters who struggle against conspiracy and betrayal is surely no accident. When it comes down to the fighting, Reeves knows how to capture mayhem. In contrast to his use of shaky, hand-held camera work in the alien disaster cult favorite, “Cloverfield,” Reeves uses long, steady takes. This allows him to effectively choreograph the acrobatics of the apes. As a result, the film represents a refreshing break from the chaos cinema of many mainstream action features, which seek more to disorient than to entertain. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” won’t waste your time or money, and it succeeds in disturbing viewers because it makes an effort to be plausible. The steps the apes take to acquire power from humans are logical and don’t leave behind plot holes. The film plays off the threat terrorists groups pose in the Middle East and reveals how frightening social instability can be. The original film frightened audiences by showing how humans could regress to occupy an order lower than that of apes; “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” updates that fear to the modern age. Rated PG-13 for intense scifi violence and brief strong language. Two hours and 10 minutes. —Cooper Aspegren
