Los Altos grads: ‘our vibe is kindness’ LAHS CLASS OF 2017 CELEBRATES DIVERSITY, ACCEPTANCE AND ACTIVISM By Kevin Forestieri

inding one’s significance in the grand scheme of things can be challenging, and that tough philosophical question only gets worse when you’re surrounded by thousands of brilliant minds at one of the top schools in the state. That’s what graduating senior Katia Gibson said she grappled with when she came to Los Altos High School four years ago. But standing at the school’s graduation ceremony on Friday, June 2, she said that anxiety has vanished. The

Money down the drain WOMAN, OVERCHARGED ON SEWER BILL FOR YEARS, SEEKS REFUND FROM CITY By Mark Noack

L

ike any other homeowner, Mountain View resident Denise Salles receives a stack of bills in the mail each month: for insurance, electricity, water and a long list of other things. And like most people, the 60-year-old tech writer didn’t give these payments too much attention. Her eye would usually go straight to the amount owed, and that’s what she would write into her checkbook. But in recent days, Salles has gotten a painful lesson in how that trusting approach can go very wrong. A longstanding error on her utility bills, she recently learned, had caused her to overpay more than $5,400 over the course of 20 years. Salles is demanding a refund from the city. But while city officials acknowledge they overcharged her, they say they have no obligation to pay back most of it.

INSIDE

“It feels so damn unfair to me,” Salles said. “This isn’t about the money as much as being responsible for when it’s your error.” This dispute started last month when she received a letter from the Mountain View Finance Department notifying her of the error in her sewer bill. A city accountant explained that Salles’ townhouse had been incorrectly charged for two sewer connections, instead of the one hookup she actually used. As of her most recent sewer bill, this mistake meant she was being billed $90, when she actually should have owed about half that amount. But the most startling thing about the error was how it compounded over time. The city had been overbilling her since 1996, when she first bought her house. In the letter, Mountain View account technician Nam Tran said the city was refunding Salles for only the last three

years of overcharged sewer bills, or about $1,050. Tran noted this was more than the city was obliged to pay back — California Government Code requires a refund for only the most recent year, she said. Nevertheless, Salles was incensed after reading the letter, which she forwarded to the Voice. She called the city’s finance department, and she said its staff implied the situation was her fault because she didn’t review her utility bill more rigorously. But Salles believes that wouldn’t have made a difference because her bills never mentioned that she was paying for two sewer connections. When contacted by the Voice, Nam directed questions to department director Patty Kong, who then forwarded the reporter to City Attorney Jannie Quinn. See SEWER BILL, page 6

El Camino board member abruptly resigns DENNIS CHIU LEAVING SEVEN MONTHS INTO HIS SECOND TERM By Kevin Forestieri

E

l Camino Healthcare District board member Dennis Chiu announced he will be resigning from his elected position at the end of this month, according to a statement released by the district Tuesday. Chiu, who serves on the regional health care district’s board of directors as well as El Camino Hospital’s nonDennis Chiu profit corporate board, will be stepping down from his oversight role on June 30. The decision comes just seven months after he began his second four-year term, following an uncontested election in November 2016.

Chiu told the Voice that he recently began a full-time government relations job in Napa that made it increasingly challenging to serve on both El Camino’s hospital and health care district boards, the finance committee and the corporate compliance committee. The commute from Napa to Mountain View takes about two hours one-way. “It has become unmanageable for me to commit the time the district and the hospital needs,” Chiu said. Chiu was elected to the board in 2012, shortly after a civil grand jury report sharply criticized the El Camino Healthcare District. The report critiqued the district for failing to fully separate the money it collects as a See EL CAMINO, page 6

PILL MILL DOC SENTENCED A 74-year-old Mountain View woman who ran a pain management clinic in the South Bay was sentenced last month to four years in prison after an investigation found she gave one of her patients prescriptions for “hundreds� of pills including Oxycodone, Flexeril and Clonazepam. The patient was later found dead in his home. Jasna Mrdjen, a former doctor, was sentenced for involuntary manslaughter on May 19, eight months after she pleaded no contest to manslaughter charges as well as one count of conspiracy, two counts of dispensing a controlled substance to an addict, and nine counts of prescribing controlled substances to people without a legitimate purpose, according to a statement by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office. A multi-agency investigation into Mrdjen’s practice in Los Gatos, which launched in 2011, concluded that Mrdjen was writing “excessive, high dosage prescriptions� for Oxycodone and Percocet with minimal evaluation and sometimes without prior medical records. An undercover officer posing as a patient with foot pain reportedly got a prescription from Mrdjen without even being asked to remove her shoe, according to the statement. The manslaughter charges stem from Mrdjen giving one patient, 29-year-old Steven English,

English had reportedly just returned from drug rehabilitation treatment, and was found dead in his home two weeks later in Truckee, California. The cause of death was “multiple drug ingestion,� according to the district attorney’s office. Mrdjen is also being accused of altering English’s patient file and forging his signature after he died. “I hope this tragedy serves to warn others of the depth and danger of the prescription drug abuse epidemic and reminds those who are tempted to over-prescribe powerful narcotics to value their patients’ lives over profits,� Deputy District Attorney Dana Veazey said in the statement. By pleading no contest to the involuntary manslaughter charges, Mrdjen was ensured a sentence of no more than four years, which will be served in the county jail system under the state’s Public Safety Realignment Act, according to the statement. At the time of sentencing, she had already served nearly half the sentence in “custody credits.� The court did not impose any additional jail time, and instead ordered Mrdjen to be released on probation.’ —Kevin Forestieri

Wiechec was instrumental in launching classes that expose teens to the world of engineering before college, and aim to

promote better gender balance in the field. Wiechec joined the district in 1998, and one year later opened the doors to the school’s first technology education class. The program Phil Wiechec later branched out into three courses — Pre-Engineering,

Engineering I and Engineering II — which guide students through civil, mechanical and electrical engineering as well as robotics, materials engineering and aerospace engineering. The classes are designed to be full of opportunities for handson learning and creativity, and students who take for all three classes get a chance to build drones, underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), See RETIREMENT, page 9

Final vote next week on school boundaries CONCERNS ABOUT UNEVEN STUDENT DIVERSITY IN MV WHISMAN ATTENDANCE PLANS By Kevin Forestieri

T

he Mountain View Whisman School District inched forward in its years-long effort to redraw school attendance boundaries, after a majority of its board of trustees last week agreed to back a proposal that aims to disappoint as few families as possible. But the decision wasn’t without its critics, as some parents said the process was “politically driv-

en” by vocal neighborhoods and concerns were raised about a lack of ethnic balance. At the June 1 meeting, board members took their pick between two maps of school boundaries, determining which Mountain View neighborhoods have enrollment priority for each public school. The maps have been under review since early 2015, and are critical for alleviating overcrowding at Bubb and Huff elementary schools, as well

as zoning families into the new Slater Elementary, which is set to open in 2019. After dozens of map proposals and a dizzying amount of demographic analysis, there’s very little that sets the two proposals apart from one another. The only major difference between the maps is whether to zone residents in the North Whisman area for the new Slater See BOUNDARIES, page 10

ver since Hope’s Corner opened in downtown Mountain View six years ago, serving free weekly meals for the needy, one of their regular guests was a homeless man by the name of Edward Hamm. He was a mysterious figure. His routine at the soup kitchen was always the same: He’d come in wearing a hoodie s w e a t s h i r t Edward Hamm tightly drawn over his head, accept whatever food was on the day’s menu and isolate himself in the corner. He would eat alone in silent concentration, sometimes while looking through a Stanford University Continuing Studies catalog. Some days, he was like a monk who had taken a vow of silence, never speaking a word to anyone. On other days, he’d appear to be having a conversation with invisible people seated at his table. If one of the charity’s helpers tried to talk to him, he would brusquely avoid contact. “He had this social aversion, he’d become very anxious around other people,” said Dr. Marilyn Winkleby, a retired Stanford Medicine professor and Hope’s Corner board member. “He would watch you for six months or a year before he would even say hello to you.” Hamm had reportedly been homeless in Mountain View for about 35 years, living for much of that time in an encampment along Stevens Creek. He died earlier this year from a pulmonary embolism, just as Winkleby and others began learning his life story. There was clearly more to the man than one might assume. Despite living a spartan lifestyle, on his deathbed Hamm gave everything he owned to set up a scholarship fund for at-risk students. He left enough money to help send students to college for years to come. “He was this person with a whole different dimension and story than you’d expect,” Winkleby said. Hamm suffered from an unidentified mental illness which left him agitated when indoors

and around other people. Occasionally, he had psychotic breaks, leaving him erratic and shouting obscenities at the top of his lungs. He struggled to organize his life and keep appointments. “Edward was someone who had slipped through the cracks because of his mental illness,” said Leslie Carmichael, board president of Hope’s Corner. “People like him who have these conditions, they can’t really access basic services on their own.” After about a year of attending the Hope’s Corner meals, Hamm began to slowly lower his guard. He would break his silence occasionally to say hello or goodbye to the kitchen helpers, Carmichael recalled. Winkleby said she made a concerted effort to get the reclusive man to open up. Occasionally, she would ask if she could sit with him. In one of the rare times that he spoke, Hamm asked her why they didn’t serve Coca-Cola. Winkleby offered to bring him a soda if he would just tell her his name. As Hamm began to trust Winkleby, details of his life began to trickle out. He told her that he grew up in South Carolina, and later moved to New York’s Harlem. For a period, he trained as a competitive boxer. He said he received a master’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley and trained there as a baritone singer, performing in the school’s production of “Oklahoma!” He said he joined the U.S. Air Force and served overseas in data entry at a Royal Air Force Station near London. After he was discharged, he wound up in the East Bay city of Richmond doing data entry work and his mental troubles reportedly began emerging. Confirming the facts of Hamm’s story is difficult, given how much time that has passed. UC Berkeley officials contacted by the Voice could not immediately confirm Hamm’s enrollment. But Winkleby was able to verify his Air Force service. As they began to talk more, she asked him if he was receiving his military pension. He was not, she said. Winkleby made it her mission to help him receive his See PHILANTHROPIST, page 10

taxpayer-funded district and the money the hospital collects as a private corporation. Subsequent recommendations by Santa Clara County’s Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) called for more transparency in both governance and accounting. “There was a huge labor dispute, there was the grand jury indictment, there was a lot of stuff going on,” Chiu said. “I was elected, I felt, to calm down the situation.” More recently, Chiu has emphasized the importance of making sure El Camino Hospital grows and expands its services in order to survive as an independent, nonprofit hospital, even if it means spending millions to purchase land and build facilities outside of the health care district’s boundaries. Hospital officials frequently cite the volatile health care market, steep local competition and uncertainty in national health care laws as reasons to scale up operations. Chiu, along with the rest of the district board, agreed to purchase nearly 16 acres of land in South San Jose for new health care facilities last year. At the time, he argued that serving

more patients in South San Jose will improve the quality of care in Mountain View, even if it does sound a little counter-intuitive. Chiu said it may look like the hospital is doing well in recent financial reports, but it takes careful measures of financial prudence to ensure the hospital can survive while still subsidizing the important community services that don’t make any money. “A lot of hospitals give up their emergency room because they cost too much,” he said. “They get rid of the behavioral health department because it doesn’t make any money.” District board member Julia Miller said Chiu brought an important perspective to the board, through his legal background as well as his close connection with the community. He served on Sunnyvale’s Housing and Human Services Commission, and also spent time on regional boards, including the Santa Clara County Planning Commission for 13 years. Miller said she knows Chiu personally, and remembers when he helped walked precincts with her back in 1997. “He’s my colleague, but he’s also a great friend,” she said. Last month, Chiu was one of the crucial votes that decided whether

to change El Camino Hospital’s governance structure. El Camino Hospital’s board of directors includes all five elected health care district board members as well as three appointed members, who serve as health care experts. Chiu, along with district board members Julia Miller and John Zoglin, all opposed a plan that would have removed two of the district board members overseeing the hospital’s governance, leaving it without a majority of elected members. Although Chiu said there’s never a good time to leave the hospital, El Camino is in a much better place. The health care district has taken great strides towards transparency, there’s a more diversified base of patients coming to the hospital, and the big labor disputes have mostly vanished. “I’m happy about the things that we have been able to accomplish, and I think the hospital is positioned to strive and be successful amidst its competitors,” he said. The El Camino Healthcare District encompasses Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills, as well as parts of Sunnyvale, Palo Alto and Cupertino. The district is a separate entity from the hospital corporation, and receives tax dollars from district residents. The money is used to invest in the hospital, and a portion of the money goes back into the community through a community benefit program. The El Camino Healthcare District is scheduled to discuss how to fill the vacancy at the June 20 board meeting. Email Kevin Forestieri at kforestieri@mv-voice.com V

Continued from page 1

City officials say it remains a mystery exactly why Salles was overbilled for so many years. The error was reportedly first discovered as a routine matter as staffers prepared to send out bills to ratepayers. They gave assurances that the problem was isolated to Salles’ address, and that no one else was affected. The city was working to fix the error, but city officials were not necessarily responsible for causing it, Quinn said. She noted that the legal statute of limitation for recovering money from a public entity is only one year. “We don’t know how the mistake occurred but we want to fix

it going forward,” Quinn said. “When an overpayment like this occurs we have our policies that we follow, and we’re going above and beyond that here.” This answer leaves Salles unsatisfied. She has written to the mayor and other city officials about the issue, and they assured her they would look into it. If that goes nowhere, she said she would consider some kind of legal action against the city. “Part of what makes me angry here is the city’s assumption that this is OK,” she said. “This is a moral issue; it’s the government versus a person who is attempting to live within the law.” Email Mark Noack at mnoack@mv-voice.com V

Eight drug-related arrests at Dead and Company concert LAW ENFORCEMENT TARGETED CONCERT-GOERS SELLING DRUGS AT SHORELINE By Kevin Forestieri

M

ountain View police made a total of eight drug- and alcoholrelated arrests in and around Shoreline Amphitheatre over the weekend, most of them for the suspected sale of drugs including LSD, cocaine, heroin and hallucinogenic mushrooms. The arrests, which started on Saturday afternoon, June 3, and continued through Sunday afternoon, coincided with two backto-back performances by Dead and Company, described by the concert venue as a “John Mayerfronted Grateful Dead spinoff band.” Most of the suspects arrested were either transient or not from the area. The first arrest was around

5:15 p.m. on Saturday, prior to the start of the first concert, when officers allegedly spotted a 22-year-old man from Covina, California, selling drugs. Officers searched the man, identified as Christopher Resue, and found he was in possession of 40 grams of mushrooms, 15 grams of what appeared to be cocaine, $1,000 in cash and a digital scale, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. Resue was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession for sale. Two hours later, police found another man who was having “extreme difficulty” walking through one of the parking lots. Officers approached the man, identified as 23-year-old transient Jesse Del Rossi, to see if he

was okay and found he was in possession of LSD and several hundred dollars in cash, Nelson said. Rossi was also arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession for sale. Around 8 p.m., officers spotted 41-year-old Santa Rosa resident Milton Heger allegedly drinking alcohol in the parking lot, which is a city code violation. Officers reportedly found him in possession of 10 grams of heroin, strips of LSD and 2 ounces of marijuana — twice the new legal limit for recreational pot, Nelson said. Heger was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession for sale. The arrests continued into early Sunday morning. Police received reports around 2:25

The man, 36-year-old transient David Owenby, allegedly tried to get into the venue and became “aggressive” when Shoreline staff tried to stop him. When officers stopped Owenby, he reportedly spoke “very quickly and rambled in sentences that did not make sense,” Nelson said. Owenby’s pupils were also extremely dilated, according to police. Officers waited with Owenby for over an hour to see if his condition would improve, but he continued to be aggressive towards officers, Nelson said. Owenby was eventually arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and transported to Santa Clara County jail. On Sunday afternoon, prior to the second show, police arrested two men who were allegedly working together to sell LSD to concert patrons. Both suspects, 37-year-old New York resident Kevin Lamanna and 22-year-old Arkansas resident Chris Bollman, were both detained and later arrested for possessing and selling a controlled substance,

as well as conspiracy to commit a crime, Nelson said. Lamanna had a no-bail warrant out for his arrest in North Carolina. Another suspect, 26-year-old Christopher Penn, was arrested Sunday afternoon for allegedly selling what appeared to be doses of LSD. Officers detained Penn, whose city of residence is unknown, and later found that the doses of LSD were not real, Nelson said. Penn was arrested for selling fake narcotics. Law enforcement at the concert was primarily focused on stopping the sale of drugs — particularly LSD — which is consistent with past enforcement efforts by the city, Nelson said. The Mountain View Police Department did not commit additional officers to patrol Shoreline Amphitheatre, but added that police were “very, very busy” over the weekend. “It’s no secret that, unfortunately, some take these concerts as opportunities to commit criminal activities that could potentially harm others,” Nelson said. “While most concert-goers do not cause a problem, some take advantage of the large crowds to sell narcotics, even in the presence of children.” V

robotic arms and even powered go-karts. Mountain View High School is largely ahead of the curve. Education leaders across California have spent the last five years pushing public schools to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), launching endless summits and annual symposiums that espouse the importance of a tech-savvy workforce. But Wiechec said he saw the “shift in education” towards technology back in the 1990s, and it was hardly a secret. The only problem was how to finance a high-cost engineering program on a public school budget. “There just wasn’t that much support at the time,” Wiechec said. “You could say that it was available, but so expensive to bring to schools that it was difficult to get the funding you needed.” Mountain View High was fortunate enough to get plenty of outside support from local organizations and companies, particularly Synopsys, he said. When Wiechec set out to create what would become the engineering program at Mountain View High, he had two goals in

mind: get more students interested in engineering in college, and get more women into the field. The first goal has largely been met, as nearly 80 percent of the students who go through all three years of the program major in engineering in college. The gender balance, on the other hand, still isn’t where it needs to be, Wiechec said. About 20 to 25 percent of the students enrolled in engineering are female, which is a lot better than when the program first launched, when no girls enrolled, but gender parity remains a challenge. Prior to Wiechec’s arrival in 1998, the Mountain ViewLos Altos High School District struggled to launch a successful engineering program, according to former Associate Superintendent Brigitte Sarraf. Student enrollment couldn’t sustain even one class for more than a year. It was only through his “dogged determination” that the school was able to keep the program running for the last two decades. “Phil wanted nothing but the best for his students,” Sarraf told the Voice in an email. “He never gave up in his search for new equipment and the latest technology so that his students could have a world-class experience, using tools that were of

industry standards.” Wiechec said Sarraf was the program’s “biggest supporter” throughout the years. “Her and I would have really heated discussions, but yet she always backed my program and was always there with the funding we needed,” he said. The grand finale of the engineering program is the go-kart project, a quarter-long endeavor where students design, build and test drive go-karts using a combination of electronics, machined parts, and nuts and bolts. The school doesn’t have a facility to weld parts together, which means students have to go through an extra layer of problem-solving to figure out a design that works. “It does make it harder,” he said. “It really makes them stop and think about what they need to do, and really think things through.” Though building and tinkering is certainly a major component of the program, Wiechec said the classes also aim to show students how technology can be used to improve lives and fight for just causes. Drones, for example, can be used to help farmers check the status of their crops, or can be used for conservation by monitoring poaching by hunters. Over the years, Wiechec said

it’s meant a lot to have so many former students, now engineers, come back to the school and talk about what the classes meant to them. “I think what’s touched me the

most are the women who came in and, more than once, said they’re only taking the class because their dad told them to, and then they end up going into engineering in college,” he said. V

government pension. It was a harder job than she first realized. Living on the streets, Hamm had lost his photo ID, Social Security card and all documentation proving who he was. Local officials with the Veteran’s Administration couldn’t provide his pension without this identification. Trying to restore his identity became like an episode straight out of a Kafka novel. “I talked with six people about how to get him a photo ID, and they said you need a photo ID,” Winkleby said. “Even with my knowledge of the system and my position at Stanford, it was still difficult.” It took nearly two years. Winkleby said their first lucky break was getting a copy of Hamm’s military discharge papers. From there, they were able to get copies of his birth certificate and identification, which opened the door for him to begin receiving his pension and food stamps. He later opened his own bank account. For the first time in decades, Hamm had a reliable income

stream, but he still lived like a pauper. He used some money to buy more food and second-hand clothes, but he was naturally a thrifty person. “My mother always said to save my money and not use all of it,” he told Winkleby. Following a stroke late last year, Hamm’s health began deteriorating. He was hospitalized at El Camino Hospital and later transferred to hospice care in Pacifica. In his final days, Hamm had expressed interest in putting the money he had accrued toward something that could survive him. He liked the idea of a scholarship for disadvantaged youth. Last week, an Alta Vista High School graduate received the first-ever Edward Hamm Scholarship. Zitlaly Ramirez said she plans to use the $1,000 scholarship to enroll in a medicalassistant program through the Mountain View-Los Altos Adult School. “I feel honored.

Grunewald argued that the district staff — and earlier recommendations by the board — put harsh restrictions on the way the new boundaries could be drawn, and that treating major thoroughfares like El Camino Real and Central Expressway like firewalls made it impossible to balance schools in terms of socio-economic diversity. The result, he said, is that some neighborhoods are going to be zoned for schools that are less desirable, and drawing boundaries turned into a question of “doling out the pain” in the most equitable way. Blakely said she understood the process was difficult, but she “wasn’t thrilled” with the options on the table and the outstanding problems that still remain. There are still situations, she said, where families are being sent to schools that are not the closest ones to their homes — sometimes not even to the second-closest school. She said she was also worried about the lack of diversity of schools, and whether artificial constraints on school size may be to blame. Superintendent Ayinde Rudolph said diversity was not on the list of priorities for

school or leave the neighborhood zoned for Theuerkauf Elementary, and whether to annex part of the Monta Loma attendance boundary — the area north of West Middlefield Road between Shoreline Boulevard and Highway 85 — into the Theuerkauf attendance boundary. Though the final vote is scheduled for June 15, at least three trustees, board members Greg Coladonato, Tamara Wilson and Ellen Wheeler, said they support option “A,” which sends North Whisman children to Slater and leaves the northern portion of the Monta Loma attendance boundary intact. Board member Laura Blakely said she couldn’t see zoning North Whisman for a school other than Slater, and mostly favored option “A” as well. Jessica Gandhi, a parent and president of the North Whisman Neighborhood Association, urged board members to support option “A,” which she said provides safe routes to school and keeps the larger Whisman neighborhood together. She said she was also part of a group of parents that fought to get a school re-opened following the painful closures of both Whisman Elementary and Slater Elementary, and she worried her family may not even get to attend the nearby campus. “I worked with many others for many years to get a school re-opened, and I’m here tonight because there’s a chance we may not be able to attend Slater when it reopens,” she said. Other parents, however, say they are facing displacement in both the remaining options, and the only thing that sets them apart from North Whisman is that they weren’t well-represented in the boundary drawing process. David Levin, a parent in the Willowgate neighborhood, said the roughly 75 elementary school-aged kids who live in the area sandwiched between Highway 85, Central Expressway, Middlefield Road and Moffett Boulevard are being forced out of Landels Elementary and into Theuerkauf in options “A” and “B.” He said there’s a reliable way to travel to Landels along Stevens Creek Trail, but that safe bike route vanishes when they get relocated to Theuerkauf. “It’s clear to me that the mapmaking was a politically driven process to appease certain neighborhoods,” Levin said. “The only conclusion I have is that my neighborhood is the clear loser in this political process.” Matt Grunewald, who serves on the district’s Student Attendance Area Task Force and participated in the boundary

drawing new school attendance boundaries, and that balancing enrollment based on measures like family income would require starting the process “all over again.” The district’s Student Attendance Area Task Force (SAATF) has worked on the maps for 18 months, he said, and is reaching a point of frustration. Instead, Rudolph suggested that board members make a final decision and vote on boundaries this month, but may choose to make modifications to the map until December 2018. Rudolph later told the Voice that it’s important from a planning perspective to have something like option “A” in place now, even if board members do choose to go back and get creative with boundaries changes after the vote. Coladonato said both boundary proposals are much better than the existing school attendance boundaries, and agreed that picking new boundaries now is fine so long as the district keeps its options open. It’s still a big unknown just how many families are going to switch to Slater when it opens up, he said, and it’s possible the boundaries will have to change. “I think that it’s okay to have a flexible outlook and adapt to what comes,” he said. The school board is set to vote on the boundaries at the June 15 board meeting. Both options “A” and “B” can be viewed on the district website at https://tinyurl. com/mvwsdmaps.

Into the great unknown MVHS GRADUATES PREPARE FOR LIFE BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL By Mark Noack

or some it was just a piece of paper; for others, it’s their passport to a whole new frontier. Receiving their diplomas, more than 400 graduates of Mountain View High School went through their final rite of passage as teenagers before heading out to experience the world’s opportunities and pitfalls. The mood was as sunny as the late-afternoon weather on June 2 as the senior class walked out onto the football field for the commencement ceremony. Looking out into the crowd of students, Principal Dave Grissom hailed the “dreamers, freethinkers and trailblazers” of the class of 2017. It was the school’s 115th graduating class — but this one, he assured them, was unique. He touted the school’s athletes, the robotics team and the students who volunteered in the community. This year’s class created new clubs and took initiative in tweaking the campus schedule. In short, the principal said he was impressed. “There’s no doubt in my mind that we’re looking at future leaders,” he said. “I challenge you to continue working for the betterment of society.” Graduating senior Sarah Maciag

Speaking in front of her classmates, she recalled a famous anecdote about the acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell, who donned a baseball cap and played for commuters at a Washington, D.C. subway station. He had just played before an audience of thousands at Carnegie Hall, but his free performance attracted just seven people and earned just $32.17 in donations. “Without the right framing, art is hard to notice,” Maciag said. “Let’s take a moment to frame our work.” She thanked parents, teachers,

counselors and others for their contributions that helped her class succeed. She also acknowledged the many mistakes every graduate had made through their education. Those were the milestones on the path to accomplishment, she said. It was a sentiment echoed by a propeller plane buzzing over the graduation crowd. It trailed a banner with a movie quote, which the younger crowd instantly recognized, offering pithy advice: “I don’t need easy; I just need possible.” “We have all changed and grown so much over the years,” class president Molly Harrigan said to the crowd of teachers, parents and school officials. “We could not have done it without you.” Email Mark Noack at mnoack@mv-voice.com V

Alta Vista grads prevail over life’s hurdles SENIORS SAY CONTINUATION HIGH SCHOOL HELPED TURN THEIR LIVES AROUND By Kevin Forestieri

or Alta Vista High School student Mike HernandezMartinez, getting to graduation day was no easy feat. Standing among friends and family at the school’s commencement ceremony Wednesday, May 31, he recounted key moments of a day that shattered his life: his parents got into a fight, the cops showed up, his mother was covered in bruises, and he knew his father wasn’t going to come home that night. Grades and school performance took a tumble soon after, Hernandez-Martinez said, because caring for his mother and brother — as well as worrying about how to pay the rent — took precedent over academics. It was only through the support from the friends and staff who make up the small, tight-knit community at Alta Vista that he was able to make a stunning recovery and receive his diploma this year. “Each of us have gone through our own battles, whether it’s at school or at home,” he told classmates. “But we pushed through all the obstacles to graduation.” Prevailing over adversity is a persistent theme at Alta Vista’s graduation ceremonies. The continuation high school serves students from Mountain View, Los Altos and Palo Alto who, for one reason or another, struggled to succeed in a traditional high school setting. Like Hernandez-Martinez, all 22 graduates this year have a story to tell, and many of these stories are shared openly for the first time on graduation night, said Alta Vista Principal Bill Pierce. “It’s one of those situations where you know some of the details, you know the struggle, but you don’t know the full story until they’re going out the door,” Pierce said. “It’s

on stage. It was revealed later that she had been in a major car accident on the way to graduation, and she was still pretty shaken up when the ceremony started, Pierce said. “The whole front end of the vehicle was just ripped off,” he said. “It must have been a really scary accident.” Graduates shared a myriad of goals and aspirations they plan to chase straight out of high school, including careers as mechanics, paramedics, teachers and social workers. The graduates snagged a combined $30,000 in grants and scholarships for college from local organizations including the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce and the Mountain View and Los Altos rotary clubs. The graduates also received support from the Mountain View and Los Altos Kiwanis clubs. Hernandez-Martinez said he plans to go to college, and that he owes it to his family to succeed. He said a good education is “essential” to make sure his mother doesn’t have to live in distress any longer. “My parents didn’t finish high

school because they migrated to the U.S., and sacrificed their comfort to provide for us,” he said. “My mom did everything that she could so that we could attend a good school and have a chance to succeed.” The Mountain View-Los Altos High School District has a decadeslong history of supporting an inhouse continuation school, starting with Shoreline High School in the 1980s. Alta Vista acts as a safety net for students who are at risk of not graduating high school by their senior year, and has robust mentoring and advisory programs to help teens catch up. For a couple years, Alta Vista experimented with accepting incoming ninth-grade students who district staff predicted would struggle in a traditional high school setting. The idea was to support students early on so they never have to fall behind in the first place. The strategy didn’t prove to be very effective, and the early admission policy was later scrapped. Still, the experiment means four of the graduates this year had the rare opportunity to attend Alta Vista for all four years of high school, Pierce said. Alta Vista’s support structure means students have a significantly higher chance of reaching graduation. The school often supports students who have to work part- and full-time jobs on the side, as well as teen parents with one or more children. But the credit really goes to the students, Pierce said. “These students have had drama in their lives already, they have been unsuccessful in school before, they are working, and yet they still have the fortitude and grit to stay the course,” he said. “These are kids who have every reason not to have made it and they did.” Email Kevin Forestieri at kforestieri@mv-voice.com V

said. “Maybe the fruit was organic, but there were preservatives or cane sugar in it.” While neither one has a professional culinary background, the mother and daughter have been cooking and baking together for Amy’s entire life. Amy was raised in Palo Alto and the two now live in Mountain View. “My best memories from my childhood are baking with my grandmother before she passed away, and cooking with my family,” Amy said in an email.

STORY BY

SARAH MASON PHOTOS BY

VERONICA WEBER Above: Rose Wolfrom hands out samples of the jams she makes with daughter Amy Wolfrom at Stanford University’s farmers market. Left: The Wolfroms sell their organic spreads under the name Cool Jams, and feature some unusual flavors, like a banana jam spiced with cinnamon and cloves, raspberry-jalapeño and strawberry-kiwi.

Amy, a graduate of Palo Alto High School, began making jam in her kitchen and wanted to turn it into a business. At first, she thought about selling it to Whole Foods and similar stores, but when she saw the paperwork that was required, she looked into other options. She realized she could apply for a Cottage Food Operation permit from the county, which would allow her to make jam in her own home and sell it publicly. Amy’s frustration with the

paperwork led them to pool their talents and split the duties, Rose said. Rose dealt with the ins and outs of the permitting process while Amy worked on marketing materials. Amy is currently working toward a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an at Thomas Edison State University, and works for Instacart. Because the company, which they named Cool Jams, sources its ingredients locally — from Watsonville, Sonoma County, Brentwood and along the Half Moon Bay coast, Amy said — the jam flavors are seasonal. Whenever she’s available during the summer, Amy travels to local farms and picks the fruit herself. Sometimes they will make up to 25 flavors at once, Rose said. They make classic fruit jams such as strawberry, fig, and cherry, but Amy also comes up with her own concoctions, like pearvanilla and strawberry-kiwi. Rose recalled when Amy first began making jam and pitched banana as a flavor. Rose said she was unsure about it at first, but Amy’s addition of cinnamon and cloves have made the banana jam one of the company’s best sellers. Cool Jams uses only organic ingredients, with the exception of the pectin, the gelling agent used in jams and jellies. As the Cool Jams Facebook page states, jam should taste “like fruit in a jar, (as) opposed to sugar in a jar, with the fruit being the star of the show.” The first step in making the jam is washing and sorting the fruit. Then it gets mashed and put in a cooker specifically for making jams and jellies. From start to finish, the process takes between one-and-a-half to two

hours, depending on the kind of fruit, Rose said. They put the cooked, mashed fruit into jars, which goes into boiling water to sterilize them. Finally, the jars are labeled and ready for the farmers markets. Cool Jams’ best seller “varies from week to week,” Rose said. “One week it’s strawberry, (the) next week it’s banana. I’m constantly cooking all the flavors, since you never know what will be a hot seller,” she said. “I’m cooking jam all the time.” Rose sells the jam at local farmers markets, including at Stanford University on Tuesdays. As for the future of the company, Amy said she is excited to expand Cool Jams. She said they hope to get access to a commercial kitchen so they can eventually sell to local stores like Whole Foods Market, Mollie Stone’s and Piazza’s Fine Foods. “Down the road I would love to either get a storefront or food truck where we make custom nut-butter-and-jam sandwiches,” she said.

WONDER WOMAN 000

Although the origin story of Wonder Woman shifts from World War II to “the war to end all wars” for the new film from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the phrase “why we fight” leaps to mind to describe the hero’s first solo cinematic outing. Wonder Woman’s journey takes her from sheltered idealism through hard-won hard truths about so-called “mankind” to a heroic purpose with promise of future adventures. When American spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes his plane in the waters around the “paradise island” of Themyscira, he must answer for mankind to the Amazons who live there. Princess Diana (a.k.a. Wonder Woman) has trained for the contingency of invaders but couldn’t fully prepare for the horror of war. Diana determines to accompany Trevor into the outside world,

where he plans to put the kibosh on the chemical weapons program while she intends to put an end to war with a swing of the “Godkiller” sword. The film has its failings — it falls into a few bland narrative stretches, fumbles over its cardboard villains, and ends with the usual dull clash of titans — but the very existence of “Wonder Woman” makes a much-needed feminist statement in the crowded superhero space. Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content. Two hours, 21 minutes. — P.C.

COURTESY OF UNIVERSAL PICTURES

Sofia Boutella plays the titular ancient princess in “The Mummy.”

‘Mummy’ mia ... here we go again UNIVERSAL BETS BIG ON MONSTERS IN LATEST REBOOT 01/2 (Century 16 & 20) Universal Pictures’ “The Mummy” is the first movie in its “Dark Universe” planned series of films that will revive Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, the Wolf Man, the Invisible Man, et al. on the theory that what worked before will work again. After all, Universal is the house that monsters built back in the Golden Age of Hollywood. All of these monsters have been revived already umpteen times, of course, but strangely enough, none more successfully than the Mummy, which spawned a 19992008 trilogy (not to mention the “Scorpion King” spinoffs). This time, Tom Cruise anchors “The Mummy” with a big budget but a conspicuously hollow script. It comes as a bit of a shock that the film’s screenwriters include heavyweights David Koepp (“Jurassic Park”) and Christopher McQuarrie (Oscar winner for “The Usual Suspects”), along with actor Dylan Kussman and three writers given “story” credit: Jon Spaihts (“Doctor Strange”), Jenny Lumet (“Rachel Getting Married”), and the film’s director Alex Kurtzman (“Star Trek”).

That’s enough writing talent to suggest that the awfully clunky results are the result of too many cooks in the kitchen serving — to mix a metaphor — two masters: Universal and Tom Cruise. Cruise plays antiquities thief Nick Morton, and oh boy, is he some rascal! He forces his sidekick (Jake Johnson) into insanely dangerous situations (a firefight in Iraq laced with bickeringbuddy comedy), beds a woman (Annabelle Wallis’ ancient-Egypt expert Jenny Halsey) only to sneak off with her buried-treasure intel, and generally insists that he’s conspicuously “masculine.” He also gets the requisite shirtless scenes and ranks highly enough over Oscar-winner Russell Crowe to make him say to Cruise’s character, “You are a younger man” (for the record, Cruise is three months older than Crowe). Yes, Tom Cruise, you are very manly, but do we have to watch this movie? The film’s Mummy thrill-ride action sequences (plane crashes, explosions, rolling vehicles), are a reasonable facsimile of the big dumb fun we expect in June,

but whenever the movie opens its big dumb mouth and begins babbling, the audience is liable to feel as cursed as the sadly generic characters. Crowe, playing Dr. Jekyll (and Mr. Hyde), gets the worst of it, with lines like “He found his redemption. But at great cost” and “If evil were a pathogen, then there must surely be a cure.” Author Robert Louis Stevenson wouldn’t recognize this Jekyll, whose secret organization Prodigium is in the business of vanquishing evil: “Recognize. Examine. Contain. Destroy.” Very long story short: awakened-ev i l-a ncient-pr i ncess mummy (Sofia Boutella) wants to give human form to god of death; curses Cruise; wreaks havoc. Very long story shorter: You can keep this “Mummy” under wraps. It’s disposable, and “Dark Universe,” not surprisingly, looks like a very expensive mistake. Rated PG-13 for violence, action and scary images, and for some suggestive content and partial nudity. One hour, 50 minutes. — Peter Canavese

call. Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) lives with her mother Pauline (Tony winner Anika Noni Rose), who also serves as her doctor (uh oh), in an elaborately tricked-out suburban home that she never gets to leave. Nevertheless, events conspire to give Maddy a great adventure: She turns 18 and a cute boy named Olly Bright moves in next door. His curiosity piqued by the glass-encased beauty next door, Olly (Nick Robinson) begins reaching out, mostly through text messages and pantomime from his window, but eventually more boldly. Suffice it to say, when desire meets with an obstacle, love finds a way. Sadly, pretty much everything, everything else in “Everything, Everything” adheres to cliché, and the story fails to deal honestly with its what-if scenarios. Rated

PG-13 for thematic elements and brief sensuality. One hour, 36 minutes. — P.C.

Londinium brothel to become a gangster with a crew. The film, however, feels like a rather desperate attempt — in design, music, and even casting — to score some of that sweet “Game of Thrones” cash. And since “Batman Begins” remains the template for origin-story reboots, “Legend of the Sword” doubles down on traumatized boys and gives Arthur martial-arts training sourced from the Far East. Despite some striking visuals and the occasional evocation of “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” this newfangled “Arthur” comes up short on grandeur or even old-fashioned matinee adventure. Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, some suggestive content and brief strong language. Two hours, 6 minutes. — P.C.

KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD 00

That most flexible of ancient legends gets a new workout in Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Certainly, this is the first version of the King Arthur story to feature a character referred to as “Kung Fu George,” but let’s just say Ritchie’s take on Arthurian legend isn’t going to surprise anyone who knows what’s up at the multiplex these days. We get a “King Arthur” in which the displaced royal — cast off Moses-like after the murder of his parents — grows up thinking he’s “the bastard son of a prostitute,” raised in a

In addition to extending the project reach upstream to Tully Road, the proposed modification to the project will change the target protection from 1%, or 100-year, level flood event, to protection from a flood event equivalent to the February 21, 2017 flood (approximately a 20 to 25 year event). The proposed modification also includes identifying short-term flood relief solutions, that are permittable and do not exacerbate flooding elsewhere.

The current project reach is approximately 6.1 miles between Montague Expressway and Hwy 280. The proposed modification would extend the project reach approximately 2.9 miles upstream to Tully Road to include the Rock Springs neighborhood and incorporate the areas impacted by the February 21, 2017 flood event on Coyote Creek (see map).
