Palo Alto businesses protest Amazon tax resistance Brick-and-mortar retailers call Amazon a selfish ‘scofflaw’ for trying to repeal an Internet sales-tax bill alo Alto’s brick-and-mortar businesses that pay sales taxes are protesting Amazon. com’s attempts to get an exemption for Internet sales it conducts in California. A coalition of small businesses from Palo Alto and Menlo Park held a press conference Wednesday morning (Aug. 17) at Palo Alto Bicycles to address the issue. Participants included Palo Alto Bicycles, Bell’s Books, Kepler’s Books and Magazines of Menlo Park, Chain Reaction Bicycles of Redwood City, wholesalers and the California Teachers Association. The group is taking part in a statewide campaign by the nonprofit group Stand With Main Street to raise awareness of Amazon’s attempt to repeal a state law. California legislators approved the e-fairness bill in June to expand sales-tax collection to more Internet retailers. The state could receive an additional $200 million annually from the sales-tax revenue. Amazon has spent a reported $3 million to try to overturn the law through a ballot referendum that requires retailers with a physical presence in the state to collect sales tax. Amazon also fired thousands of California affiliate businesses that


sell merchandise through its website because their physical presence would make the online retailer have to pay sales tax under law. But Palo Alto business owners said Wednesday that Amazon should pay, given that the state is cash-strapped and an exemption creates an unfair advantage for the Internet giant. Brick-and-mortar retail businesses already have difficulty competing with large e-tailers that offer products at lower cost, they said. Online-only mega-retailers that exploit the loophole have an advantage of nearly 10 percent, according to Stand With Main Street. Brick-andmortar retail businesses that employ California workers are losing an estimated $4.1 billion annually in sales to online retailers. That number is expected to rise. Goldman Sachs estimates online shopping will increase from 4.4 percent of all retail sales to 17.1 percent in the near future. Since 2000, online sales have more than tripled. Jeff Selzer, owner of Palo Alto Bicycles, said that, though online retailers can offer discounted products, brick-and-mortar stores provide service and expertise. It’s frustrating when customers try out new products and take advantage of the store’s expertise, then turn around

Clark Kepler, front, owner of Kepler’s Books and Magazines, speaks during a press conference with fellow small-business owners and educators on Wednesday (Aug. 17) at Palo Alto Bicycles. People had gathered to show their support for an e-fairness bill, protesting Amazon’s special tax benefits. and buy the product online, he said. Paying sales tax is also about funding government services, he said. “The tax is not just good for local businesses but for the entire state,” he said. “We’ve been doing business in this state for 81 years. Our state is not doing well. It seems to me absolutely ludicrous” for the state to exempt online companies from sales taxes while the tax base for basic services is shrinking, he said.

Faith Bell of Bell’s Books said Amazon is disingenuous when the company claims it doesn’t have a physical presence in California but its Kindles are produced in San Jose and distributed in the Bay Area. Bell’s has been in downtown Palo Alto for 76 years. Sales tax pays for local road and infrastructure repairs, she said. “I don’t know how much money we’ve collected that went toward infrastructure in the state and county.

“It irks me that others can sell their products without benefiting anybody but themselves,” she said. Don Dawson, a California Teachers Association board member for Silicon Valley, said declining salestax revenue has been devastating for schools. For the past three years schools have lost $20 billion in funding statewide, affecting class sizes and (continued on page 10)


Palo Alto Bowl to close

Paly to get a handle on homework loads

Shuttering of Midpeninsula’s last alley follows national trend by Jeff Carr alo Alto Bowl owner Rhythm Smith sat Monday facing a sea of empty lanes, wringing her hands — her left, with its long, milk-white nails, and her right, the bowling hand. She was distraught about the impending closure of the local institution, which still bears many of the sights and sounds reminiscent of its founding days in 1957. Its shutdown on Sept. 16 represents not only the loss of her business but the continuation of a nationwide downward spiral for traditional bowling alleys. Palo Alto Bowl has been on death’s door for some time. The fatal blow landed in December 2009, when the Palo Alto City Council approved a plan to demolish the alley, as well as the nearby Motel 6 and a small retail strip, and replace it with a mixed-use project consisting of a major brand hotel and 26 townhous-

Around Town A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN ... With the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in California fast approaching, the League of Women Voters of Palo Alto took time out Tuesday evening to commemorate the milestone at the Garden Court Hotel. California’s men voted on Oct. 10, 1911, to give women their voting rights, making the state the sixth in the nation to approve, nine years before the adoption of the federal Nineteenth Amendment. According to the League, Palo Alto had many active suffragists: Virginia (Jennie) Arnott, state auditor for the Equal Suffrage Association; Mary Grafton Campbell, organizer of the Woman’s Club; Anita (Annie) Corbert, president of the local Political Equality Club, which educated men and women on the cause of women’s suffrage; Anna Zschokke, another co-founder and officer of the club; Sarah Wallis, who held suffrage meetings with leaders like Elizabeth Cady Stanton at her Mayfield Farm home; and Alice Park, an adept publicist for the cause throughout the world. Mayor Sid Espinosa was invited to be the guest speaker Tuesday night, and he admitted to feeling “slightly uncomfortable” addressing the League on the topic, given that (a) he is not a woman and (b) he supposed that most in the room knew the suffrage history better than he does and would always understand the fight for women’s equality better than he would. “But alas, here I am. This is what you’ve got,” he said, to laughter. Espinosa’s talk, “Three revolutions and one question,” touched upon the continuing fight for rights throughout the world. Citing youth revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, which were facilitated by social media such as Twitter and Facebook, he said that “courage, common cause and teamwork” were clearly the most important assets for the youth, as they were for suffragists. And, he predicted, technology will play a role in advocating for women’s rights around the globe. A video is posted on BLOODY GOOD ... Donating blood is a way to give back to the community and maybe even help save a life, but donors who give blood via Stanford Blood Center during the

first two weeks of September will receive a bonus besides good karma and brownie points: access to a networking event for those seeking a new career. The Giving Blood Works event, held Tuesday, Sept. 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at 3373 Hillview Ave., Palo Alto, will feature Career Generations counselors, representatives from Foothill College Career College Connection, individual resume critiques and recruiters from institutions including the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Option 1 Staffing and others. The blood center hosted two identical drives in 2009, after it saw a decline in blood donations due to a decrease in workplace drives, according to the Wall Street Journal. Spokesman John Williams said he believes the center is the only one in the world offering the program. FREE FOR ALL ... Close to 88,000 people from more than 175 countries have expressed interest in taking a free, online course, “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence,” offered through the Stanford School of Engineering. Even if they all ultimately register, there should be no problem accessing the short video lectures, according to Jamie Beckett, director of communications and alumni for the School of Engineering, because not all will be “in class” at the same time. The course, taught by Sebastian Thrun, a Stanford research professor of computer science and a Google fellow, and Peter Norvig, Google director of research, requires about 12 hours a week of reading, completing assignments and taking quizzes and an exam, just like the course aimed at Stanford students. What students will lack will be oneon-one interaction with professors — and a degree. Stanford is billing the project as “an experiment that could transform the way online education is delivered.” Another 31,000 have expressed interest in two other computer-science courses, “Machine Learning” and “Introduction to Databases,” which will also be offered online. Classes start Oct. 10. Students should have some knowledge of linear algebra and probability theory before taking the course, Beckett said. N


Federal grand jury indicts pair for mortgage fraud Local mortgage broker, lender allegedly victimized East Palo Alto residents as part of $40 million financial scheme by Sue Dremann San Jose mortgage broker and a private lender who allegedly gave false information to banks that inflated potential borrowers’ incomes, assets and employment in order to qualify them for upwards of $40 million in loans were indicted by a federal grand jury in May, according to court documents. Among their victims were an East Palo Alto homeowner and his brother, from whom the broker and lender stole nearly $200,000, according to a civil suit filed by the brothers. Linda Dung Tran, 33, is accused of 29 felony counts that include conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, making false statements to a bank, engaging in monetary transactions using criminally derived property and aiding and abetting. Pablo Curiel, 71, of San Jose is charged with 17 counts that include conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, making false statements to a bank and aiding and abetting. If convicted of all charges, Tran faces a maximum of 760 years in


federal prison and more than $24.5 million in fines. Curiel faces 390 years in prison and more than $13 million in fines, according to the indictment. Tran and Curiel are accused of being part of a group that included Norma and Claudia Valdovinos, agents at Century 21 Golden Hills Realtors, and others that allegedly defrauded a series of banks from 2005 to 2007. The defendants’ scheme involved kickbacks and secret down payments, all without the borrowers’ knowledge, according to the indictment. Upwards of $40 million in loans were provided to buyers who would not have received loans if not for the defendants’ fraud, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Tran allegedly paid Norma Valdovinos kickbacks to overlook fraudulent stated-income information on the borrowers’ applications. Tran also arranged for Curiel to provide down payments for the statedincome loans, the indictment stated. But the down payments to the


Palo Alto to shop around for major electricity projects City considers ways to use a $50 million reserve for ‘significant’ projects to benefit ratepayers by Gennady Sheyner alo Alto’s utility officials have a pleasant conundrum on their hands these days — a $50 million fund that the city can use to upgrade its transmission system, install smart meters or pursue other “special projects” relating to electricity. The fund, known as “Calaveras Reserve,” has been in place since 1983 and has undergone several transformations, the latest of which is now in the works. The City Council launched the reserve to help pay off the city’s debt for a new hydroelectric project. But when state legislators passed a law in 1996 deregulating the electric industry and allowing customers to choose their power supplier, Palo Alto officials decided to use the reserve to pay for electricity assets that the city purchased but would have a hard time supporting if it were to lose customers to a competing utility. By 1999, the reserve balance reached $71 million, which was deemed enough to cover the asset costs, and the city stopped collecting funds, deciding it would draw upon the reserve until it ran out in 2033. In 2009, to address changing market conditions, the council approved


new guidelines for the management of the reserve. Utility officials are still a long way from determining what to do with the $50 million, but early signs indicate that these funds will not be returned to the ratepayers who were asked to chip into the fund but for one or more long-term big-ticket items. The city’s Utilities Advisory Commission agreed last month that all of the Calaveras money should be placed into a new “Electric Special Project Reserve” and used to fund significant electricity projects. Senior Resource Planner Monica Padilla wrote in a report that top candidates include smart-meter infrastructure; investments in local power generation; and upgrades to the city’s transmission-line connection (a subject of major interest since a plane crash caused a citywide power outage in February 2010). The city may also use these funds for energy-efficiency loans to businesses; exploration of “emerging technologies”; and a new Utilities Department building (in addition to its City Hall location, the department occupies a portion of the city’s dilapidated Municipal Service Center). Commissioners John Melton and

banks were made in secret through escrow companies with notes from the borrowers, according to the indictment. Curiel thus secured the loans through a deed of trust, which he filed after the close of escrow so the banks that were providing first and second loans did not learn about the third deed of trust. Curiel and Tran made sure the down payment was funded in a way that disguised that the down payment was borrowed, according to the indictment. Curiel allegedly charged borrowers, including an East Palo Alto family, Miguel and Rafael Cacho Vega, interest-only payments for two years at 10 percent, plus a balloon payment of 110 to 125 percent at the end of the 2-year term. Financial institutions that were defrauded included Greenpoint Mortgage, Washington Mutual, Countrywide Home Loans, National City Bank and Downey Savings and Loan, according to the indictment. In the East Palo Alto case, Miguel (continued on page 6)

William Berry both said they would favor spending the money on an upgrade of the city’s transmission system. The city is currently connected to the electrical-transmission grid at the Colorado substation at 115 kiloVolts (kV), according to a staff report. Upgrading the system to 230 kV “has the potential of saving up to $5 million per year and improving the city’s transmission service reliability.” Such an upgrade, however, is estimated to cost more than $160 million, making it “economically infeasible,” in staff’s opinion. A cheaper option would be connecting to the 230 kV transmission grid through SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in the west side of the city. Staff estimated that the project would cost more than $40 million and could provide about half of the city’s electric load. It would, however, depend on interest by Stanford and SLAC, according to the staff report. “If a transmission project was available to us, it would be a worthwhile thing to do and it would reduce the future cost to ratepayers,” Berry said at the July 20 meeting. Not everyone agrees that the entire reserve should be dedicated to major electricity projects. In deciding to use all $50 million in the Calaveras Reserve for such projects, the commission rejected a Utility Department suggestion to use half of the reserve to support utility operations and help stabilize rates. Utilities Director Valerie Fong said at the July meeting that the department made a “compact with customers” about what the money would be used for. Though the role (continued on page 8)

Cacho Vega, a tile setter, was referred by Century 21 Golden Hills Realtors to Tran in 2006 to secure a $20,000 loan to pay off credit-card debts. Tran agreed and told him that she needed his brother Rafael to co-sign the loan. But instead of obtaining a $20,000 loan, Tran allegedly “sold” Miguel Cacho Vega’s home to Rafael without either man’s knowledge, according to the lawsuit filed by the nonprofit Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto. She did so by taking out a $675,000 loan from Downey Savings & Loan Association to pay off Cacho Vega’s original home loan, allegedly without his knowledge. She obtained a down payment for the Downey loan from Curiel for $75,000. Curiel received a deed of trust after the fact without the bank knowing, then charged exorbitant balloon payments to the Cacho Vegas, the indictment states. Tran gave Cacho Vega the $20,000 he wanted, but took his name off the title without telling him and pock-

English. His passion for sports was never dampened by his disability. In 1984, Bostic competed in the Special Olympics at UC Berkeley, where he won the gold medal in shot put and softball toss. He also competed in volleyball, basketball and softball. But epilepsy did interfere with his ability to keep a job. Because Bostic frequently had seizures at work, he was laid off from Safeway in Menlo Park after seven years, and later from Walmart, he said. “I was a good worker and everything, but they just didn’t want to see me hurt myself,” he said. Bostic’s seizures also caused lifethreatening injuries. In 2000 he collapsed and broke his neck. The following year another seizure caused him to fall and re-injure his neck. His final major injury occurred in 2005 after his head hit the ground during a seizure, resulting in brain contusions (bruises). The accident also led to blood clots in his brain. Since Bostic’s symptoms did not respond to medication and his seizures occurred frequently enough to impose on everyday life, Fisher asked Bostic to consider surgery. “I want to live my life like everybody else, so, yes, I wanted the surgery,” Bostic said. According to Fisher, Bostic was the perfect candidate, with a specific and single focal point — the part of the brain where seizures activate —

centered in the inner part of his left temporal lobe. With multiple focal points, removal is difficult and the chances of complications increase. “The removal of one temporal lobe is (as) safe as removing one kidney,” Fisher said. Since his operation in August 2010, Bostic has been seizure-free. He now works at Best Buddies, a nonprofit that matches people with Alfred Bostic recently underwent surgery to relieve epilepsy symptoms. Since the surgery a year ago he has experienced no seizures.

eted $190,000, according to court papers. Cacho Vega lost the home to foreclosure in 2008, the civil suit alleged. (The Weekly published a story about the Cacho Vega case on June 26, 2009.) Miguel and Rafael Cacho Vega sued Tran and Curiel in December 2007 for fraud. A federal judge in February 2010 awarded Miguel Cacho Vega $136,942 and Rafael $30,000, plus $22,385 to both brothers after Tran defaulted in their cases. Robert Kane, one of the Cacho Vegas’ attorneys, said the brothers have not yet received any compensation. Tran filed for bankruptcy and the brothers could have to wait until after the criminal trial. If Tran and Curiel are convicted, compensation could be a requirement of their sentence or any plea deal, he said. Similar cases involving Tran and Curiel have emerged in federal court. In a separate civil case, 12 Latino clients in San Jose were allegedly similarly defrauded, according to a lawsuit by the nonprofit Law Foundation of Silicon Valley and Greenberg Traurig, LLP, an East Palo Alto law firm. The plaintiffs’ attorneys

declined to comment because the case is still actively being litigated, they said. In another federal civil case filed July 2, 2010, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), is suing seven Latino victims of Tran and Curiel — including Rafael Cacho Vega — for fraud along with Curiel and Tran’s companies as a result of the fraudulent loans taken out on their behalf from the nowcollapsed Downey Savings & Loan Association. Kane said he was successful in getting the FDIC to drop Cacho Vega from the suit once a declaration was received that detailed how he was misled. The victims are from East Palo Alto, San Jose, Santa Clara, Gilroy, Newark and Beaumont (in southern California), according to court papers. Robert Carey, attorney for Tran, said he could not comment on the case because it is in litigation. Tran conducted business as Absolute Investment Group, Palacio Mortgage and Tara Home Financial Services in San Jose. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at

alo Alto resident Alfred Bostic struggled with debilitating epilepsy for 62 years — until a single operation at Stanford exactly one year ago left him seizure-free for the first time since infancy. At just 8 months old, Bostic fell ill with whooping cough, bronchitis and pneumonia, leading to a 12-hour coma. Though his doctor called his survival from the coma a miracle, Bostic said he was left with significant brain damage, including frequent epileptic seizures. “Epilepsy is one of the most misunderstood diseases, with a certain stigma attached to it,” said Dr. Robert Fisher, Bostic’s longtime neurologist and director of Stanford Hospital & Clinics’ Epilepsy Center. He described an epileptic seizure as “an electrical storm in the brain.” According to Fisher, about 1 percent of the world’s population has epilepsy. Two out of three of those cases are controlled with a variety of 20 different epileptic medications. But a third of patients, including Bostic, are resistant to the medication. Growing up in Philadelphia, Bostic suffered from seizures at least once a week. “I would shake and lose my breath. Eventually, I just had to quit school altogether,” he said. Bostic later found success at an adult school in San Jose in 1978, earning As in math, history and

the City address in January. This year, Quakeville will take place Sept. 10 and 11 and expand to two sites in the city — Juana Briones and Rinconada parks, said Kou, a Barron Park resident. As in 2010, the event will localize a major, real-life disaster. Last year’s event followed the San Bruno gas-line explosion and simulated a neighborhood gas leak that occurred after an earthquake; this year follows the Japan earthquake. The tent city, which forms the crux of the Quakeville experience,

will serve as a testing ground where families can determine what their specific needs would be in a real disaster. Simulating a realistic scenario in which homes are destroyed or inaccessible and highways are closed, each household will bring its own supplies and camp overnight in a park along with other “victims.” In this setting, families will be naturally faced with a variety of challenges, such as determining how to keep children occupied and corral pets. Others will face graver questions, such as how to care for a functionally disabled parent who requires breathing help. “Disasters don’t discriminate. There needs to be more thought given to what people will do in those

situations,” Kou said. This year’s drill will be bigger than in 2010 and include more organizations and emergency teams working in a more coordinated effort. Palo Alto and Stanford residents will have a choice of two tent cities to camp in, and they’ll also benefit from educational stations and exhibits put on by the Red Cross and others, according to Kou. Kou said she wants people to know about local resources. She also hopes that organizations, such as the Red Cross and Palo Alto Animal Control, will find ways to combine efforts with one another.

Palo Alto Bowl (continued from page 3)

Aaron Barger at Swenson informed her of the current timeframe “two or three weeks ago.” Barger said he now hopes to begin construction prior to the end of the year. At 4329 El Camino Real, nearly halfway between Charleston and San Antonio Roads, Palo Alto Bowl sits on prime property. Though Smith said the alley was and is financially stable, the revenue from the center simply hasn’t been enough for the property owners to justify keeping a sizable parcel of Silicon Valley land wrapped up in recreation. Since the owner of Mel’s in Redwood City decided to shut his doors in May, the closure of Palo Alto Bowl leaves the Midpeninsula without a single lane — a striking condition considering the former significance of the bowling alley within American community life. Smith said she doesn’t foresee a new center opening anytime soon — available land is too small and too expensive — forcing local bowlers to drive to Cupertino or San Mateo. For many avid league bowlers, the commute will be surmountable, if inconvenient. High school students will choose other activities. But for others Sept. 16 represents the final frame in a longer, more meaningful game. Smith said that Palo Alto Bowl is the only house in the area that caters to special-needs groups such as the Special Olympics and blind and disabled veterans. Smith became particularly agitated speaking about the effects of the closure on such groups. “My veterans are more upset than anybody,” she said. “They’re asking me to do something, but what can I do?” Smith added that she has numerous regulars in senior leagues, including many in their 90s, who can’t travel and will have to hang up their shoes in September. “One woman who has a solid 110 average just bowled a 201 the other day. She was so happy,” Smith said. Opponents of the closure have cited the alley’s importance to local special-needs and disabled communities as among the primary justifications for its preservation. In an email to the Palo Alto Weekly, Dan Mart, architect of the “Save the Palo Alto Bowl” online campaign, accused the City Council of “institutional discrimination toward the disabled.” He also decried the loss of a locally signifi-

cant establishment that has brought “character” to the city. Similar sentiments have been echoed throughout opposition efforts, which have targeted not the developers but the City Council, for voting for the redevelopment. Smith, too, noted that she gets along well with Barger and has no animosity for Barry Swenson Builder or the property owners. But she had hoped the city would step in. More than 52 million U.S. adults and almost 20 million children bowled at some point last year, making it the nation’s No. 1 sport in terms of broad participation, according to studies provided by the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America. Bart Burger, vice president of development for the association, said bowling stands out because it has “very few barriers to entry.” However, he noted, while overall participation appear to be holding strong, the number of bowling facilities in the U.S. has been in steady decline for decades. At its height in the 1960s, Burger estimated that there were 7,000 to 8,000 alleys in operation throughout the country. Now there are only about 5,000. A major contributor to the drop, he said, is that many proprietors who opened their alleys during the bowling boom in the 1950s and ‘60s have been unwilling or unable to upgrade their facilities to compete with larger family-entertainment centers, which offer bowling along with other amenities such as indoor climbing and laser tag. Rising property values, an enticement to sell properties, have also been a factor in other areas. Burger said family-entertainment centers and smaller “hybrid” bowling centers that remove a few lanes in order to offer other amenities, may be the most viable means of survival for alley proprietors. Burger also said that something must be done to compensate for a major decline in organized league play. “Imagine a restaurant that had guaranteed patrons for 30 weeks straight,” Burger said. “Unfortunately, people aren’t making as many long-term commitments like that anymore.” After the last pins drop at Palo Alto Bowl, Smith said she’s not sure what she’ll do.

ity reporters at a time when national television stations were looking to engage in minority-represented journalism. In 2003 she started East Palo Alto Center for Community Media, which spearheaded the creation of media outlets in the underserved East Palo Alto community. That led to the founding of East Palo Alto Today, the city’s first continuously published newspaper in 20 years. A resident of Meadow Park since 1977, she served on Palo Alto’s Human Relations Commission in the mid-1990s. Regarding East Palo Alto, Burroughs said she thought she would find a community that starkly contrasted with politically engaged Palo Alto. But she found people in East Palo Alto very much like her neighbors, she said. “Palo Altans are very vocal and involved in their community. Somehow I didn’t get that sense that that exists on that level in East Palo Alto. I was really surprised,” she said. Burroughs wanted to give East Palo Altans a way to have their issues and concerns represented in the media from within their own community. She wanted to portray community life — its issues, successes, innovations and cultures that make the city a vibrant place, she said. “There is so much energy that the residents have in terms of improving their community — there are so many positive things going on. You would never get a feeling about that

of the reserve has changed, Fong said she feels “obliged to return it (the money) under the same intent under which it was collected.” The disagreement between staff and the commission means that the City Council will face two competing recommendations when considering the reserve’s new role in the fall. Commissioners John Melton and Steve Eglash both opposed the staff recommendation to split the Calaveras Reserve into two funds, with

Fire Department, Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) teams will also join in to test their own procedures throughout the day, Kou said. But she stressed that in a real disaster, response teams tend to be stretched extremely thin, which places the ultimate burden on individuals and families to prepare themselves, she said. After taking a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class, Kou and her husband, John St. Clair III, became interested in how residents could cope with disaster if whole neighborhoods were to be displaced and emergency crews tied up.

reading about it in the news. “I wanted to do more than just cover the potholes and the fires — where you could do something that you could sink your teeth into,” she said. In East Palo Alto, “I’m as close as I could possibly get to doing what I’ve wanted to do as a journalist.” Burroughs said she realized immediately that to be part of a community means having and sharing information. “The importance of communication — you can’t very well build a community, or at least the residents can’t — without having adequate information, truthful information. How do you choose priorities? How do you make the right choices of those priorities, and how do you know whom to elect?” she said. Burroughs grew up in Washington, D.C., the daughter of a homemaker mother and a father who worked at the U.S. Government Printing Office. She attended D.C. public schools, “where we were taught to compete on anybody’s standards,” she said. Her interest in journalism began with the high school newspaper and continued at Howard University, where she received an award for “best newcomer” for her work on the college paper, she said. She earned a master’s degree in international affairs at Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs and a certificate in Broadcast Journalism from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Burroughs moved to New York City for a United Nations-related job and wrote for the New York Post in the 1970s. She later worked as a tele-

vision news reporter and on several news shows, including the “Evening News” at WNBC TV and “The 51st State” at WNET TV. She hosted a weekly show, “Dateline New Jersey” and produced syndicated stories for Newsweek’s Broadcasting Unit, she said. As editorial director at KNTV in San Francisco, she won an Emmy more than a decade ago and a Golden Medallion for Distinguished Reporting from the California State Bar Association. She also received an honorable mention from the Alliance for Community Media for her show about the late East Palo Alto community activist David Lewis. Her first foray into cable television began in 1996 while she was a Palo Alto Human Relations commissioner. She and then-Palo Alto Human Services Director David Martin broadcast “Peninsula Currents,” which provided the public with information about organizations in the city, such as nonprofits. She began “Talking with Henrietta,” in January 2002, she said. But despite her dedication to journalism, she said some of the most important news can’t be found in a newspaper or on television. Sometimes, the most important news is found on the street. “I have a neighbor who recently died. I didn’t know about it until three weeks later when I was talking to a neighbor on the street. We were talking about it, and we said we didn’t know about it and we’re right here,” she said. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at

Eglash saying that the money should be spent on something major and significant and not “dribbled away” to cover operational costs. “This is a substantial sum of money that we have here, and it’s a valuable resource,” Eglash said. “Now is the time to take a real step forward to decide how to use it,” he added. Eglash proposed a set of guidelines for determining how the money should be spent. The funds he said, should be used for major projects (rather than operating costs) that benefit electric ratepayers, that are “worthwhile” (that is, they would be worth doing even if the city didn’t

have the reserve fund) and that are “impactful relative to the money we have in the reserve.” His colleagues on the commission agreed, with Berry saying he would like to see the funds used for “big significant projects that have a lasting value for the utility.” The council’s Finance Committee is tentatively scheduled to consider guidelines for spending the Calaveras Reserve funds in September. The full council would then discuss the Finance Committee’s recommendation in October. N Staff Writer Gennady Sheyner can be emailed at gsheyner@

“She saw a missing link, in that there’s no preparation for residents. The CERTs know what to do, but nobody else does,” St. Clair said. Kou has a deep passion to help people and jumped at the chance to join the Block Preparedness Coordinator program in their neighborhood, he said. She is also working with the Palo Alto Neighborhoods residential group to integrate plans at the city level and came up with the idea for Quakeville last year. Last year’s event included a surprise search-and-rescue simulation, prompting the tent city residents to band together to locate a missing and injured man. The lessons immediately became useful when a young girl actually wandered off without telling her family, only to be located soon thereafter, she said. Kou declined to comment on what

surprises might await this year’s participants, but the unknown and unanticipated will be part of the event, she said. “If you’re not going through the actions, a lot of things never come to mind. Last year, we had all of our food, but no spatula. After that, we put a spatula in our kit. It’s all discoveries,” she said. Quakeville will begin at both parks at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, and events will wrap up at noon the following day. Those wishing to camp overnight can pre-register by contacting Lydia Kou at 650-9960028 or Campers can also do walk-up registration on Sept. 10.

News Digest PG&E begins Palo Alto pipeline project The PG&E project to test gas pipelines in Palo Alto began with staging and excavation last Thursday (Aug. 11) and will continue through late September, according to the City of Palo Alto Utilities department. Gas-line segments T-29 and T-30 will be vented of unused gas in order to conduct hydrostatic pressure-testing. People in north Palo Alto and Menlo Park can expect to smell gas on Friday (Aug. 19) when venting for pipeline segment T-29 will begin. T-29 stretches from Alma Street to Middlefield Road, with dig sites located at 2573 Alma, 3672 Middlefield and 3860 Middlefield. On Thursday (Aug. 25), hydrostatic testing of T-29 begins. Noise and a slight smell may be noticeable near Oregon Expressway and Alma Street. Residents of south Palo Alto may notice a smell on Monday (Aug. 29) when segment T-30 will be vented. T-30 starts at the intersection of Alma and Page Mill Road and continues up Page Mill to Foothill Expressway. Dig sites are located at 650 Page Mill, 925 Page Mill, the corner of Page Mill and Hanover Street and 500 feet north of the intersection of Page Mill and Foothill. Hydrostatic testing of T-30 will begin Sept 5. Hydrostatic testing subjects pipes to water pressure 150 percent greater than the pressure allowed under normal gas use. Tests will “validate a safe operating pressure for the pipeline� and ideally “reveal weaknesses that could lead to defects and leaks,� PG&E officials said last month. Weakened pipes will be repaired or replaced, the city stated. N — Casey Moore

Can higher consciousness be measured?

Local STAR test results show mixed progress Palo Alto students continued to score well while East Palo Alto students showed mixed improvement on California’s Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) exams in English, mathematics, science and history. The results, released Aug. 15, showed “steady� across-the-board improvement for California’s 4.7 million schoolchildren, with 54 percent scoring “proficient or above� in English and 50 percent scoring proficient or above in math — the highest percentage since the program’s inception in 2003. Palo Alto students far exceeded state averages, with majorities scoring “advanced� in many subject categories. But consistently, at least 5 percent of Palo Alto students were “below basic� or “far below basic� in many of those same subjects. School-by-school results are available at, the California Department of Education website. “There’s not that much change in the results. I guess I’m a little disappointed because you always want to see improvement, but with the gains we made last year this isn’t surprising,� Palo Alto Superintendent Kevin Skelly said. Students in East Palo Alto’s Ravenswood City School District showed mixed gains in some categories, including mathematics. For example, 63 percent of fourth-graders scored “proficient� or “advanced� in math in 2011, compared to 40 percent in 2010. And only 16 percent of this year’s fourth-graders were “below basic� or “far below basic� in math in 2011, compared to 31 percent in 2010. N — Chris Kenrick

Texting-while-driving bill gets legislature’s OK

LET’S DISCUSS: Read the latest local news headlines and talk about the issues at Town Square at





The fines for texting on or holding a cell phone while driving in California could get much steeper if Gov. Jerry Brown signs a bill the California State Legislature passed Monday (Aug. 15). Under Senate Bill 28, by Sen. Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto), the cost of a first offense would rise from roughly $189 to approximately $309 — amounts vary slightly by county — when penalties and fees are included. The actual first-offense fine would be $50, up from the current $20. Subsequent offenses would cost $100, up from $50, and add a “point� to the driver’s record. For the first time, the law would apply to cyclists as well, though they would pay only $20 for a first offense and $50 thereafter, with no added fees and no point added to their driving records. Simitian is the author of three previous distracted-driving laws. He said Monday that while the current hands-free phone laws are working, a stronger law would increase compliance and decrease the number of accidents, according to a press statement from his office. Data from the California Highway Patrol showed a drop of 40-50 percent in the number of distracted-driving accidents caused by use of hand-held cell phones after the law went into effect in 2008.

Public Agenda

(continued from page 3)

A preview of Palo Alto government meetings next week CITY COUNCIL ... The council has no meetings scheduled this week. BOARD OF EDUCATION ... The board will discuss Superintendent Kevin Skelly’s recommendations for the district’s “focused goals” for 2011-12, with an expected vote Sept. 13. The board also will hear updates on the budget and the facilities bond construction program. Several newly appointed school administrators will be introduced. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23, in the board room of school district headquarters (25 Churchill Ave.) PLANNING AND TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION ... The commission plans to discuss 195 Page Mill Road, a request for a tentative map to create 84 residential units on two upper floors of a threestory building, including 17 below-market-rate units and two common areas. The ground floor would be used for research and development. The commission also plans to discuss parking management strategies and topics for the joint City Council/Planning Commission meeting on Sept. 19. The commission will also select a new chair and vice chair. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 24, in the El Camino Real Program Room of the Downtown Library (270 Forest Ave.).


INFRASTRUCTURE BLUE RIBBON COMMISSION ... The commission will continue its discussion of the city’s infrastructure backlog and ways to pay for the items on the list. The meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25, in the Lucie Stern Community Center (1305 Middlefield Road).

stress, and facilitate meaningful discussion based on real data.” The software allows teachers to see their students’ schedules and workloads from other classes, and students and parents to view their assignments and tests. Winston’s initiative at Paly coincides with concerns about homework loads — particularly at the high school level — across the school district. A close look at homework policy is likely to be recommended as a district-wide “focus goal” for 2011-12, based on discussion at a school board retreat this past June. “We are working on the best way to develop a homework policy — task force, principal and teacher work first and then sunshining, student input, etc.,” Superintendent Kevin Skelly said this week. Skelly is scheduled to present his recommended “focus goals” for 2011-12 at a board meeting this coming Tuesday, Aug. 23, and a board vote is expected Sept. 13. At the June retreat, school board members expressed concerns about “test clumping” — the problem of exams from different classes falling on a student at the same time. Members said they may adopt a specific district-wide homework policy as a nudge to drive change. But board member Dana Tom warned that, “If it feels like a top-down directive, you won’t get much compliance (from teachers).” At the time, Skelly said the faculties at Paly and Jane Lathrop Stanford Middle School already had taken steps to examine homework policy. To launch its partnership with Rjenda, Paly

has turned over test data from last year, Winston said. “We’ve exported it, and they’re going to input it so we can see what students’ lives looked like last year,” he said. “It’s pretty revolutionary.” Winston acknowledged that, so far, Rjenda depends on teachers and administrators to enter data on tests and assignments. “In math, everything gets inputted — it gets pulled out of the grade book,” he said. “If you’re an English teacher, it might be when an essay was due. The system takes it and presents it in a simple, colorful way. Winston said he plans to ask his department heads to use Rjenda “live” this year. “As they’re moving through the year they’ll input when they’re giving assignments, and we’ll get a glimpse of what students’ lives look like. It won’t be a full picture. “It would be cool if we asked students how much time (assignments) actually took them on task. Rjenda is interested in this.” At Castilleja, Rjenda has been used by teachers since 2009 “for major assessment scheduling, to reduce conflicts for students throughout the academic year,” spokeswoman Dana Sundblad said. “The idea is to reduce stress and create a more balanced workload calendar for the girls by allowing faculty to see what’s been scheduled by others and to collaborate on gradelevel (especially in middle school) scheduling more easily,” she said. The company, which Wadera launched in 2008 after working at Oracle, Business Objects and Hyperion Solutions, charges an annual subscription based on the number of students and size of school.

school programs and shrinking class sections in all grade levels from kindergarten to college, he said. Clark Kepler, owner of Kepler’s Books and Magazines, said his 56-year-old business nearly closed six years ago because it couldn’t compete with Amazon. Kepler’s was brought back to life because the community rallied on its behalf. There needs to be a mind shift if people want local retail to survive, he said. Retail businesses will gain some advantage against online sales “when people start to think of themselves as a resident of a community rather than as a citizen alone. “We’re asking residents not to sign Amazon’s petition,” he said. Selzer of Palo Alto Bicycles said: “All we’re looking for is parity.” Amazon could not be reached for comment, but Paul Misener, Amazon’s vice president of public policy, was quoted in the Wall Street Journal as saying: “This is a referendum on jobs and investment in California. ... At a time when businesses are leaving California, it is important to enact policies that attract and encourage business, not drive it away. Amazon looks forward to working again with tens of thousands of small business affiliates in California that were harmed by the new law’s effect on hundreds of out-of-state retailers.” N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@paweekly. com.

Transitions Births, marriages and deaths

Deaths Robert Beuttler Robert Beuttler, 90, a resident of Menlo Park, died Aug. 6, 2011. He was born in San Francisco, attended Palo Alto High School, San Jose State College and was graduated from UC Berkeley in 1942 with a degree in political science. Shortly after graduation he was hired by United States Steel Corporation, where he rose to a management position in the company’s sales department in late 1948. Unfortunately, the company was forced to make some untimely “organizational changes” and he found himself having to take a forced vacation after just a few months in his new position. Making the best of a bad situation, he decided to see the world. He boarded a tramp steamer headed for Buenos Aires, Argentina, via the Panama Canal. He wound up in Cruz Chica, Argentina, a small town on the eastern edge of the Pampas, working as a soda jerk in an ice cream parlor while he courted the woman who would become his wife whom he’d met while staying at the hotel that was owned by her parents. After they married, Bob and Diana traveled to England where he landed a job working at the Headquarters of the Third U.S. Air Force in South Ruislip, Middlesex. In 1954, in the process of returning to the Bay Area, they traveled across the U.S. by train. After working several jobs on the Peninsula, he ended up at Stanford Research Institute, now SRI International, where he worked as a

compensation administrator for 30 years and 30 days until he retired in 1990. After he retired, he enjoyed taking walks around his neighborhood and chatting with his neighbors as well as traveling around the U.S., England and Argentina with his wife. He also bowled regularly at the Palo Alto Lanes until after his 90th birthday, when his declining health finally forced him to stop. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Diana; his son Jeremy Beuttler of El Dorado Hills, Calif.; and his daughter Cynthia Ishler of Park River, ND. Donations in his memory may be made to Pathways Hospice Foundation, 585 N. Mary Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94085.

Roger Nelson Roger Nelson, 72, a resident of Palo Alto, died Aug. 11, 2011. He was a resident of the seniorliving facility Vi at Palo Alto. He is survived by his wife, Rosalie Nelson of Palo Alto; sister Linnea of Minneapolis Minn.; brother Ray of Minneapolis, Min.; and brother Willard of Denver, Colo. He also had many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews. His primary career was spent with Utah International (later BHP) in a variety of environmental management positions. Memorial services will be held at Newark Community church, Newark, Calif., Aug. 20, and in Annandale, Minn., Aug. 27. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to, Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center or Newark Community Church.

Carolyn K. Spiegel After valiantly battling a rare and aggressive type of uterine cancer for over a year Carolyn Kommel Spiegel died peacefully at home in Menlo Park on August 5, 2011. Born on September 22, 1942 at Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland where her father, Sanford Kommel, was stationed as an officer in the Chemical Warfare Service of the 3rd Army, Carolyn and her brother Bob grew up in New York City with their mother, Charlotte Daniels Kommel. She graduated from Flushing High School and received a B.A. in French from the University of Wisconsin. She was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship and attended the Sorbonne – University of Paris. Her next accomplishment was a four year National Defense Education Act Doctoral Fellowship at Stanford University. Carolyn had a highly successful forty year career teaching French at various levels to thousands of students, many of whom called her “the best teacher I’ve ever had.” She began by teaching at the City University of New York but returned to California and taught at several schools before settling in at Foothill College. One of her greatest achievements was the creation of a live and interactive French Conversation class which she led over television for Stanford University. Active in the local Jewish community, Carolyn served as president of the South Peninsula Hebrew Day School PTA and on the Boards of Directors of the Bay Area Council for Soviet Jews and the Sequoia Chapter of Hadassah. She was a frequent volunteer in various capacities at Congregations Beth Jacob and Kol Emeth. As an activist in the struggle for freedom for Soviet Jews she and husband Phil traveled to the former Soviet Union in 1985 and 1987 to meet with refuseniks and bring them material and spiritual support in their struggles to emigrate. Carolyn’s first bout with cancer occurred in 1990 when she developed throat cancer and required daily radiation therapy for two years. She inspired the medical staff and other patients by riding her bicycle from her home in Los Altos to El Camino Hospital. She became an active participant in rides with the Western Wheelers Bicycle Club and completed many100 kilometer rides as well as

bicycle tours through France and around Hawaii. Combining her loves of French and bicycling she gave classes in French conversation especially “geared” for cyclists who were going to ride in France. Madamevelo (Mrs. Bicycle) became her nickname and email address and also the name of her Care Page for blogging about her cancer treatment and condition when she began chemotherapy for uterine cancer last year. Over 120 friends and family members have been reading her updates and in their nearly 2000 messages of support they frequently admired her joie de vivre and remarked how courageous and inspiring Carolyn has been. While in chemotherapy last July Carolyn served as a cycling course marshal for the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s Livestrong Challenge in San Jose. She rode 30 miles that day! Carolyn has loved being a grandmother to Sylvia (3 years old) and Ari (17 months), the children of her daughter, Deborah, and sonin-law Matthew Glenn who live in Portland, Oregon. She is also survived by her loving and devoted husband of 31 years, Philip Spiegel and his sons, Ralph Spiegel and wife, Laura Marsh, of Philadelphia, and Michael Spiegel and wife, Amity Spiegel and grandson Cole Spiegel of Brooklyn. Other survivors are her brother, Robert Kommel of New York, and her sisters Jane Stoval of Sacramento, Laura Farmer of Crystal Lake, Illinois, and Helene Kommel of Kingston, Ontario, as well as many beloved nieces, nephews and cousins in North America and Israel. A service at Congregation Kol Emeth in Palo Alto was held Sunday, August 7 preceded burial at the Eternal home Cemetery in Colma. In lieu of flowers the family asks that any donations be made to Congregation Kol Emeth, or the Sequoia Chapter of Hadassah, SINAI MEMORIAL CHAPEL 650-369-3636. PA I D

Sports Shorts RESEARCH AND RUNNING . . . Stanford grad Spencer Castro was named UC Merced’s first cross country team. The 22-year-old Castro will also conduct interdisciplinary research with faculty in the Cognitive and Information Sciences program in the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts. “The hurdles we’re facing now are setting precedent and tradition,” Castro said. “We want to be an example to the Cal Pac even though we’re a brand new program. We want to set things to a higher standard.” He worked with high school athletes at Stanford’s Nike Camp of Champions.

Palo Alto grad Teresa Noyola and Castilleja grad Lindsay Taylor have played with or against each most of their lives. They hope to win a national title together as seniors at Stanford.

Looking to make their own kind of music Stanford opens season at No. 2; hopes to end it at No. 1 by Rick Eymer here’s been some talk among Stanford women’s soccer players about forming a musical group to entertain themselves during the season. There’s even a name for the group should it come to pass: ‘Soccapella.’ Palo Alto grad and Stanford senior Teresa Noyola would love that. She’s proficient at jazz drums and the guitar and there’s a video circulating of her singing. Castilleja grad Lindsay Taylor and fellow senior Lindsay Taylor has yet to hear Noyola, but she’s pretty sure her teammate is still better at soccer than singing.


From all accounts Noyola is a pretty good musician, so her soccer abilities have to be right up there with the best. Well, for starters, she is a twotime first team All-American, and she joined teammate Alina Garciamendez on Mexico’s national team that played in the World Cup this past summer. While at Palo Alto she was named the national Player of the Year, by two different publications. So, yes, she has the soccer credentials. But what of her musical ambitions? “I’m playing guitar mostly right now,” Noyola said. “It’s a little easier. I’d like to get back to the

drums.” Noyola is encouraged by the addition of freshman Alex Doll, a talented forward out of Bethesda, Maryland. Doll was also a jazz drummer at Chevy Chase High and Noyola has thoughts of jamming with her dancing through her head. There are other talented musical types scattered among the Cardinal roster. Junior midfielder Mariah Nogueira gets rave reviews and junior forward Marjani Hing-Glover sings Opera. “There’s a lot of us who like to pretend we can sing,” sophomore goalkeeper Emily Oliver said. “We’d had some pretty sessions. We have

quite the array of musical talents.” They also have quite the array of talented soccer players. Noyola and Taylor have been on three consecutive Final Four teams, the last two years reaching the championship match. They’d love to go the extra foot or so to win it all. “It’s our last year and there’s a different feeling,” Taylor said. “We definitely want to win a national championship but I wouldn’t call it an expectation. We work hard, we have talented players and we strive to do well. We know we have to work for it. I’d call it more a drive.” (continued on page 18)


DiRado solves swimming puzzle, earns an ‘Au’ Stanford sophomore turns summer season into international sensation by Rick Eymer aya DiRado knows a thing or two about chemistry. She can tell you what the chemical symbol ‘Au’ means, for example, and how to obtain it. She also understands team chemistry and how to draw support from a teammate. On the first point, DiRado knows you just don’t go out mining for it without the proper techniques and tools. It takes hard work, determination and pushing through the hard times. Her efforts paid off Tuesday when the Stanford sophomore earned her

first international gold medal at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China by winning the 400 individual medley in a time of 4:40.79, and helping the United States pad its medal count. “The race went pretty much the way I expected it,” DiRado said. “In the freestyle I felt pretty strong coming home and I had enough left in the tank.” Stanford senior Bobby Bollier also made a trip to the awards stand, earning an ‘Ag’ with his secondplace finish in the 200 IM.

TWIN OAKS . . . Menlo College junior Chris Mazza became the first Menlo College player to be taken in the First-Year Major League Draft in June. On Tuesday, he became the first to sign a professional contract, officially becoming a member of the Minnesota Twins organization. “It was unbelievable because my dream was finally coming true,” said Mazza. “I am now a professional baseball player.” Mazza was 3-4 with nine saves and a 2.73 ERA for the Oaks this season. He led Menlo to the Southern Division championship of the Cascade League, earning the team its first ever trip to the postseason. He struck out 28 in 29 2/3 innings. Mazza also hit .337 with five home runs and a teambest 41 RBI.

Stanford sophomore Maya DiRado followed an impressive performance at the U.S. Nationals two weeks ago with a gold medal in the 400 IM at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China on Tuesday.


USA women’s volleyball team looks to start another winning streak tanford grads Foluke Akinradewo and Logan Tom, and the rest of the United States women’s national volleyball team look to get back on the winning track after absorbing its first loss of the FIVB World Grand Prix on Sunday, something it had not experienced in 16 previous World Grand Prix matches dating to last year. The U.S., ranked second in the FIVB world ranking, entered the final match of Pool H against Serbia with a 5-0 record after beating NORCECA rival Dominican Republic, 25-22, 25-22, 25-10, and host Japan, 25-22, 25-14, 25-18, over the weekend. Serbia, team the Americans beat the first week of preliminary play, came out fired up. “As always, we are trying to get better and Serbia taught us a few things” U.S. coach Hugh McCutcheon said. The Americans are in Hong Kong this weekend to continue pool play. The U.S. plays Germany, Italy and Peru. The matches, as well as the


first six matches held in China and Japan, can be viewed online at “Now we have to get the ball rolling again,” U.S. Women’s National Team captain Jennifer Tamas said. “We will go to Hong Kong and try to play better volleyball.” Team USA is in third place in the FIVB World Grand Prix standings through the second preliminary round weekend. Russia (18 points, 6-0 record) leads the 16-team tournament, followed by Brazil (18 points, 6-0). Italy ranks fourth (13 points, 5-1 record), behind the U.S., while Serbia (13 points, 4-2) moved up into fifth place after its win. Germany (4 points, 1-5) is currently 13th in the standings, while Peru (0 points, 0-6) is in 16th place looking for its first set or match victory. The top seven teams in the preliminary round standings plus China advance to the FIVB World Grand Prix Final Round to be held Aug. 24-28 in Macau, China. With three matches left in the preliminary round, only China, as the host, has clinched a spot in the Final Round.

Through the second weekend, United States’ Destinee Hooker ranks as the fifth-best scorer in the event with 93 points (77 kills, 12 blocks, 4 aces). Foluke Akinradewo, the 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix MVP, is tied for 21st in scoring with 73 points (48 kills, 21 blocks, 4 aces). Heather Bown ranks 34th with 60 points (42 kills, 14 blocks, 4 aces), and Megan Hodge is in 37th with 58 points (45 kills, 3 blocks, 10 aces). Hooker ranks ninth in Best Spiker with a 40.53 kill percent, while Hodge is 12th in the same category with a 39.13 kill percent. Akinradewo holds a 59.26 kill percent on 81 attempts which would lead all players, but does not meet the FIVB minimum requirement. Akinradewo has just under 13 percent of the Americans’ attacks, with the minimum being 15 percent. The U.S. has three of the top 20 blockers in the tournament. Akinradewo ranks fifth in Best Blocker with 1.00 blocks per set, while Bown averages 0.67 per set for 13th place. Hooker is ranked 19th with a

grad Kate Dwelley also won a gold medal for her participation in Team USA’s record-setting 800 free relay (7:55.02) on Wednesday. Stanford swimmers Andie Taylor, Felicia Lee and David Mosko each competed in a championship final. Taylor finished sixth in the 400 IM in 4:46.40 and DiRado credited her for raising the level of competition. “I train with Andie so I know that she’s a really great butterflyer and she always pushes me,” DiRado said. “She’s a great breaststroker and she always goes out faster than me. I knew I had a lot of catching up to do in the freestyle but that’s kind of been my strong part in the 400 IM so I have a lot of confidence in the last part.” DiRado hasn’t quite decided her area of concentration for her academic studies at Stanford. She likes chemistry though and will maybe find a career related to it. “Chemistry is something I am excited about,” DiRado said. “I don’t know how it will translate into a career. For now I’m just picking things that interest me.” So far, so good. The Santa Rosa resident has found the right formula for success in the pool and it could lead to the Olympics in London next summer. “I’ll keep training well,” she said. “The training at Stanford has really worked well for me this year and I had a great time at school. So, hopefully, I will get stronger and faster and give it a run.” DiRado shrugged off a disqualification in the 200 IM the previous day to earn her first international gold medal. DiRado, the Pac-10 Freshman of

DiRado, a five-time All-American, finished in the top five of three individual events and swam on two relays for Stanford at this year’s NCAA meet. She has the secondbest time in school history in the 200 back and the third best in the 200 IM and 400 IM. In China, DiRado came in with the best time from prelims and improved on that by nearly five seconds in the final. She finished 1.5 seconds faster than second place finisher Miho Takahashi of Japan. Bollier went 1:56.06 to finish second in the men’s 200 fly at the World University Games on Sunday. “I’m happy to be here,” Bollier said. “It’s my second time competing but the last time I was hurt and it was very rough. This time I was healthy so I could see what I could do.” Bollier, who won a national title in the event at Stanford less than two weeks ago, improved his time by nearly 50 seconds from his USA championship time of 1:56.54. Hungary’s Laszlo Cseh won the

fly with a time of 1:55.87. “I want to be a world class swimmer and I’m hoping to improve on those final; five or 10 meters,” Bollier said. “I need to finish the race strong.” On Monday, Dwelley finished fifth in the 100 free, Mosko was seventh in the 800 free and Stanford grad Elizabeth Smith finished 12th in the 200 IM with a time of 2:17.42. Dwelley and Lee were part of the U.S. 400 free relay that finished second with a time of 3:40.19. Australia won the race in 3:40.03. Lee was eighth in the 100 fly Wednesday with a time of 1:00.58. Mosko placed fifth in the 400 free in 3:53.80 The Americans held a slim lead after three legs of the relay before Aussie Marieke Guehrer took charge on the final leg. Lee also finished seventh in the 50 fly, going 27.07. Stanford junior Curtis Lovelace had the 15th-fastest time of the day (1:02.52) in the 100 breast and Cardinal sophomore Matthew Swanston, competing for Canada, was 18th in the 50 back with a time of 26.53.

by Palo Alto Weekly Staff enlo School senior Freddy Avis ranked eighth among the top Area Code baseball pitching prospects in the final ratings as selected by a committee that used a similar criteria used by the nearly 500 pro scouts and college coaches in attendance. Evaluation included velocity, arm action, body type, command, and body language among other points. The list was announced Friday. The Area Code Games came to a conclusion on Wednesday. A total of 35 pitchers were named to the list of prospects. HarvardWestlake senior Lucas Giolito, who committed to UCLA, topped the list. Avis, who was named one of two “Jose Bautista ‘Beastmode’ Award winners early in the competition, topped out at 94 miles an hour. Avis, who pitched for the Oakland A’s during competition, earned his award after pitching the A’s to an 8-0 victory over the Washington Nationals at Blair Field in Long Beach. Palo Alto High’s B.J. Boyd also played for the A’s. Boyd and Avis were named to the team following a tryout at Banner Island Park in Stockton, home of the Class A Ports. Avis was the hardest throwing pitcher at the tryouts, topping 90 consistently. Avis also threw an 84 MPH slider and used a 75 MPH curve to freeze a batter for a called third strike.


“I was rushing a little bit warming up because like a lot of guys, I was nervous,” Avis told ESPNRise. “A couple of the coaches came up to me and told me to slow down my delivery. I did and I think that helped my velocity.” Avis, who verbally committed to Stanford shortly after the A’s tryout July 6, pitched two innings allowing one hit while striking out three of the six batters he faced. “I felt great out there,” he said. “I was loose with a little bit of butterflies, but that’s to be expected in an event like this. I wanted to concentrate on throwing strikes because in these things you never want to throw balls. Also, it was important for me to mix my speeds because in a showcase like this guys can hit the fastball.” Avis went 10-1 with a 2.39 ERA and hit .459 as a junior to help the Knights win their second straight Central Coast Section title. He was named to CalHiSports. com first team All-State Underclass honors. “Freddy did give Stanford a verbal commitment in July and plans on accepting a scholarship and signing a letter of intent with the Cardinal in November,” Menlo School baseball coach Craig Schoof confirmed in an e-mail. “Freddy will be the seventh Menlo alum to play for the Cardinal during my tenure as coach (Dave Cornell, Jimmy Noreiga, Ryan Seawell, Kenny Diekroeger, Danny Diekroeger, Jack Mosbacher).

Stanford (23-1-2 last year) opens its season Friday with a 7 p.m. game against visiting Penn State. The Nittany Lions won the Big 10 Conference last year. The Cardinal seniors enter their final year with an overall 70-4-3 record, by far the most prolific of any class. Until they were freshmen, Stanford has reached the Final Four once -- in 1993. Taylor is another returning AllAmerican, as is Courtney Verloo and Nogueira. Noyola and Garciamendez were named to Soccer America’s preseason All-American team. Junior Rachel Quon is another topnotch defender who should get some attention for postseason honors and senior Camille Levin may be the most ver- Camille Levin satile player in the country. Stanford played with the nation’s top two players in Kelley O’Hara two years and Christen Press last year. Without those dynamic scorers, the Cardinal will be looking for a variety of ways to put the ball into the net. “Maybe the thing that has changed the most is we’ll have a more balanced attack,” Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe said. “We may not have the same goal scoring punch Christen gave us but we have a lot of players capable of scoring. We have to find the right internal leadership that will, hopefully, propel us to the Final Four again.” Garciamendez served as one of the team captains last year and she’s in the mix again this time around. There are, however, nine players on the roster who have appeared in two national championship matches and that’s valuable experience whether they are vocal leaders or not. “There is a tremendous amount of experience,” Ratcliffe said. “Teresa has always been a leader on the field and Alina is a special player. They carry themselves so well. Those kind of players are critical to our success. Rachel Buehler (now with the national team) has an incredible work ethic, drive and perseverance. You want that kind of leadership to continue. You can demand all you want but if the players demand it of each other, it becomes a special team.” It’s not just about the starters either. Ratcliffe is quick to point out players like senior Kristy Zur muhlen, juniors Nina Watkins, Lindsay Dickerson and Madeliene Thompson and redshirt sopho- Emily Oliver more Annie Case are also part of the process that makes it all special. Last year’s highly-regarded freshmen class returns with postseason

experience. It was a group that produced major contributors like Oliver, Sydney Payne, Shelby Payne and Annie Case. Redshirt sophomore Aly Gleason, Natalie Griffin and Taylor McCann also return with valuable playing time and can help another talented group of freshmen assimilate with the team. Redshirt freshman Kendall Romine, one of the more coveted players of her class, adds that much more depth to a group that includes Doll, Hannah Farr, Lo’eau LaBonta, Haley Rosen, Lauren Schmidt and Chioma Ubogagu, a Soccer America Freshman of Influence. “Chioma is a dynamic attacking player with great speed and skill,” Ratcliffe said. “She has the ability to beat defenders one-on-one and is a proven goal scorer.” Ubogagu was born in London and moved to the USA, with family, when she was three years old. Noyola joined the Mexican national team for the first time. Garciamendez is a veteran. “Not just playing in the World Cup, but training with Mexico was great,” Noyola said. “They play a different style than I am used to, so it helped me become more effective.” Without Press, Noyola is also aware that others will need to step up, beginning with her. “I know I need to score more than I did last year,” she said. “Those are big shoes to fill and we’ll need to find goals from different people. It will make the team more balanced. I do feel different about goal scoring and being a leader.” Verloo may become the ‘X’ factor in Stanford’s season. Where she plays, as a defender or as a forward, may be Ratcliffe’s biggest decision. An effective scorer when she arrived at Stanford, she became an All-American as a defender. “I really like Courtney in both places,” Noyola said. “We can utilize her on top, but she will be good either way.” It’s a decision Ratcliffe doesn’t mind making, and will likely change as the season evolves. “You can never say one player makes the team,” he said. “It’s quite a challenge. My goal is to just get better every day, every game.” N

One Day -1/2




Intelligent, sensitive and full of heart!�

Twenty years. Two people...


One Day Anne Hathaway/Jim Sturgess

(Century 16, Century 20) Like so many pictures about love, the romantic drama “One Day� seems to take place in an unrecognizable alternate universe, albeit a boring and annoying one. The one day in question is St. Swithin’s Day, July 15. On July 15, 1988, sensible working-class girl Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and obnoxious, well-off Dexter Mayhew (the overestimated Jim Sturgess) graduate from the University of Edinburgh and, finding themselves otherwise alone, wind up making a dash for the bedroom despite being considerably less cozy than two peas in a pod. And here’s where “One Day� runs off the rails. As the two attractive youngsters undress, Emma asks, “So what will you be, when you’re 40?� Who does that? (His answer, by the way: “Be reckless! Live for the moment!�) Even if you accept the line as an expression of Emma’s social awkwardness — and, perhaps, part of the reason why the pair doesn’t actually do the deed — the line is a bluntly clumsy signal of where the film intends to take us over the next 100 minutes. For “One Day� reunites us with Dex and Emma repeatedly on July 15s, between 1988 and 2006. Yes, these are the days of their lives (if not exactly “Same Time Next Year�). So we will inevitably find out exactly what Dex will be when he’s 40. But by then you’ll be long past caring. For the film’s annoying artificiality comes with no compensatory effervescence, a requirement of a romantic picture. Instead, it’s near impossible to sympathize with Dex (a sexually voracious, selfish, superficial jerk) or Emma (the woman who loves him) as the BFFs sniff around each other for decades. Like the considerably more charming “Starter for 10,� “One Day� has been adapted by David Nicholls from his own novel. But the prevailing artistic force here is director Lone Scherfig, and her treatment of the material is so much bourgeois tastelessness (beginning with the comically oversized credits, which will have you wondering if you somehow picked up the large-print edition). Scherfig goes straight for romance-novel fantasy: Do not pass Reality; do not collect $200. In what universe, you may ask, do two people not gain an ounce of fat over 20 years? (Hathaway only gets more attractive, in fact.) “One Day� delivers not one, but two phony accents, Hathaway’s and that of Patricia Clarkson, cast as Dex’s ailing mother. In one of the film’s most puzzling scenes, Dex demonstrates the height of his callousness by going to see his mother, then sleeping through the whole visit (there’s an intimation he may be on drugs, but that’s never made clear). When even the audience can’t see anything in him, Emma’s abused-puppy love for him only

seems more absurd. The scene when Emma not so finally lays it on the line presumably is meant to trigger excitable clapping, but Dex will take quite a bit longer to get his act together, and by then you’ll wonder if redemption was wasted on him. These characters must be better rounded on the page, but the screen Dex is a vocation-less fool, and Emma, so much his better, is a sucker to pine for him. Worse, Scherfig screws up big-time by telegraphing the romantic drama’s clichÊd climax, a final insult that leadens the whole mess with unearned weight. Rated PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence and substance abuse. One hour, 48 minutes. — Peter Canavese

Conan the Barbarian -

(Century 16, Century 20) Let us pause to reflect on the resurgence of the “R�-rated movie, 1980s variety. In recent years, raunchy sex comedies and gory slasher films have become not uncommon again, but action films have, for the most part, remained resolutely PG-13, the better to draw in younger audiences. If one is to say anything in favor of the new “Conan the Barbarian� reboot, it’s that someone — presumably director Marcus Nispel — insisted on an “R� rating. This should come as no surprise, since Nispel basically made his name on horror reboots (“Friday the 13th,� “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre�), and his new sword-and-sorcery outing is ultraviolent, no question. But the beheadings and skewerings and noggins cracked open like coconuts (all with festive blood or brain-matter splatter in weak-tea 3D) here share the frame with action sequences that wouldn’t look out of place in PG-13 fare like “Robin Hood,� “The Mummy,� “Pirates of the Caribbean� and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.� Unfortunately the new film compares unfavorably to any of these predecessors and, more to the point, the 1982 “Conan the Barbarian,� starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and scripted by John Milius and Oliver Stone. Milius and Stone took a more serious, if not exactly reverent, approach to Robert E. Howard’s original pulp stories and their mythical fantasy universe, whereas the new “Conan� is crass, witless and literally laughable, approached solely as a product and with no seeming aspiration to genre artfulness. The new “braintrust� of writers (Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer and Sean Hood) is not to be trusted, and Jason Momoa, as Conan, makes the director’s job a hope(continued on next page)

lessly uphill battle. Momoa, also a model, proves that he’s more of a poser than an actor: He’s a cocked eyebrow, a squinty tic and an assortment of bulges in search of a performance. As narrator Morgan Freeman informs us, Conan is “a child born of battle� into “a time both bleak and brutal.� In the absurd opening movement, Cimmerian boy Conan proves his mettle to his father (Ron Perlman) by taking on several adult enemy natives (for some reason emitting loudly mixed animal growls). Conan begins to learn the ways of the warrior and attempts to become worthy of the sword, but dad gets himself slain by magic-power-hungry warlord Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang of “Avatar�) and his sorceress daughter (Rose McGowan, sporting the latest in Freddy Krueger finger claws from the Barbarian Hot Topic), triggering a revenge-driven plot once Conan grows up to have pecs. So this “Conan� is one part hero myth, one part fantasy with supernatural magic, and several parts “that guy’s evil and deserves to die, preferably by being hacked

to bits with this big sword.� There are sidetracks establishing the Hyborian Age anti-hero’s rep as a thief, and what will go down in history as the funniest love-scene break ever to blight a movie, precipitated by Conan’s apparently catnip catch-phrase “I live, I love,

Movies NOW PLAYING The following is a sampling of movies recently reviewed in the Weekly: The Change-Up --1/2 (Century 20) Fuddy-duddy family man Dave Lockwood (Jason Bateman) and irresponsible bachelor Mitch Planko (Ryan Reynolds) are walking archetypes. Mitch looks at Dave’s wife, Jamie (Leslie Bibb), and sees the committed love and support of a good woman, while Dave rues having missed the boat on years of promiscuity. Dave and Mitch wake up in each other’s bodies and are forced to live as each other for an indefinite period of time as they investigate a way to set things right. Rated R for pervasive strong crude sexual content and language, some graphic nudity and drug use. One hour, 53 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Aug. 5, 2011) Crazy, Stupid, Love --1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) No one is particularly crazy or stupid in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s sad-funny movie about love. With his hangdog expressions and deadpan lines, suburban husband Steve Carell sets the tone — and exhibits more bromance chemistry with womanizer Ryan Gosling than with Julianne Moore, who plays his wife of almost 25 years. The plot centers on a heartbroken Cal Weaver (Carell), who is happily married to Emily (Moore) until she blurts out that she’s had a fling with a co-worker (Kevin Bacon) and wants a divorce. The most hilarious scenes involve Gosling’s character trying to transform Carell’s loser into a Lothario. Rated: PG-13 for coarse humor, sexual content and language. 1 hour, 47 minutes. — S.T. (Reviewed July 29, 2011) The Help -(Century 16, Century 20) Despite being a privileged white girl obliged to play nice with the community’s nasty cliques of racists, Skeeter (Emma Stone) has the soul of a rebel. She decides to help the help — that is, work against the mistreatment of local black maids by getting them to tell her their stories, which Skeeter will fashion into a book she’s writing on spec for a Harper & Row editor (Mary Steenburgen). Rated PG-13 for thematic material. Two hours, 27 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Aug. 12, 2011)

Midnight in Paris ---1/2 (Guild, Century 20) Owen Wilson plays Gil Pender, an American in Paris beguiled by the notion that “every street, every boulevard is its own special art form.” A self-described Hollywood hack, Gil is a successful screenwriter who grinds out movie scripts but longs to write real literature. And then with a magical stroke reminiscent of “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” the admirer of 1920s Paris becomes immersed in his favorite period. An incredulous Gil interacts with expatriate icons of the Lost Generation and the artists who contributed to the legendary time and place. Rated PG-13 for some sexual references and smoking. 1 hour, 34 minutes. — S.T. (Reviewed May 27, 2011) The Whistleblower ---1/2 (Aquarius) A divorced mother of three, Kathryn Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is a Nebraska cop turned United Nations peacekeeper in turn-of-the-millennium Sarajevo, where she encounters the kidnapping, sexual and emotional abuse, and forced prostitution of young Bosnian women. Bolkovac discovers that her employer (a contracted international peacekeeping taskforce here called Democra Security) is well aware of the abuses, and that her colleagues patronize the abusers. With the moral support of Madeleine Rees (Vanessa Redgrave) of the U.N.’s Gender Affairs office, Bolkovac investigates the abuses and attempts to organize raids that do more than ineffectually go through the motions. Rated R for disturbing violent content including a brutal sexual assault, graphic nudity and language. One hour, 48 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Aug. 12, 2011)

onday evenings on California Avenue in Palo Alto are pretty peaceful. Many restaurants are closed; business is spotty. It was so subdued on a recent Monday that street parking was available. It was that quiet. That is, until I opened the door at La Bodeguita del Medio, the 14-year-old Cuban-inspired restaurant that packs them in six days per week. Few tables were available shortly after 6 p.m. The restaurant, conceived by Michael and Lara Ekwall, opened in 1997. Michael caught the restaurant bug while working his way through college in Mary-

land, and later at UCLA. “I just fell in love with the business,� he said. As a student, he traveled to Cuba and visited the original La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana. The name means “little bar in the middle of the block.� It was one of Hemingway’s favorites (what bar wasn’t?). There, “Papa� enjoyed hand-rolled cigars, rum mojitos and the local color that he often incorporated into his work. On California Avenue, the interior colors are warm, vibrant Caribbean hues. Tables and banquettes are spaced, and the place can be noisy but rarely

Preparation instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in foil pan. Add the onion, carrot and celery. Cook until the vegetables soften, about 10 minutes then drain the oil. 3. Meanwhile, heat the other 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a foil pan. Dredge the veal shanks in the our, coating on all sides and shake off the excess our. When the oil is hot, slip in the shanks and brown them on all sides. This should take about 6-7 minutes per side. Remove the veal shanks and place them in the ďŹ rst pan on top of the cooked vegetables. 4. Add the wine, butter, chicken broth, tomatoes, pepper and salt to the pot. The liquid should come at least two thirds of the way to the top of the shanks. If it does not, add more broth.

Hours: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday

5. Cover the pan and place it in the oven. Cook for about 2 hours, turning and basting every 30 minutes, until the meat is very tender. 6. Transfer the Ossobuco to a warm plate and carefully remove the strings. To serve place Ossobuco on a plate with Risotto Milanese, or Pastina pasta in herbed olive oil and garlic.

chocolate lover’s nirvana. Havana bananas ($9.50) were caramelized bananas, walnuts, cinnamon and vanilla ice cream. It was reminiscent of Brennan’s of New Orleans’ famous Bananas Foster and almost as tasty. The Key lime tart ($7.50) was that sumptuous Key lime custard with graham-cracker crust, and a swirl of raspberry atop. What distinguished the pie was the thickness of the lush custard. La Bodeguita del Medio is a lively restaurant with interesting, well-prepared dishes inspired by the cuisine of the Caribbean, Cuba in particular. With fun libations and reasonable prices, it is probably not rowdy enough for Hemingway — which makes it perfect for us mere mortals. N

Real Estate Matters THE HYBRID HOME Do you find fuel prices are harder to afford? Are you concerned about the environment our children will inherit? Would you like to see a drop in our country’s dependence on foreign oil? How do all these questions relate to real estate? We all can have a positive impact by reducing our homes’ utility bills and operating costs. “Green” homes leave more green in both the environment and your wallet! It won’t be a fad. That’s what people thought about hybrid automobiles a few years ago, but look at the demand they have now. A green home offers better energy efficiency, environmentally

friendly building materials, and better indoor air quality. Because of all those features, it will also offer a higher resale value in the future. Lenders are doing their part to encourage the greening of both existing homes and new construction. Fannie Mae offers an energyefficient mortgage that allows borrowers to qualify for a bigger loan, and financing for improvements. When you factor in savings on utilities, you may well pay less per month for this kind of loan than a traditional mortgage! Granted, most green homes on the market now are new, and it may be awhile before resales appear. But you can be sure it’s not just a fad – it’s the future!

overpowering. The bar and dining room are separated spaces, which reduces clatter without dampening spirits on either side. Colorful Cuban artwork adds to the festive air. For starters, the empanadas ($10.50) were stuffed with picadillo pork (finely chopped), roasted chilies and pepper jack cheese, then quickly fried and topped with a slightly piquant coconut jalapeño sauce atop a scoop of black beans. I’m not an empanada fan because usually there is more dough than stuffing. Not these. They were fat with pork and cheese. Croquetas ($9) were crispy potato fritters filled with Spanish cheese, chives and pimenton (paprika). A tamarind-chipotle dipping sauce accompanied. The croquetas were delivered piping hot and were golden-crisp outside, with creamy potato inside. The camarones con mojo ($12) were delightfully lip-smackingly spicy. The shrimp was sautéed with piquillo and habanero peppers and served on little toasts. On a warm evening, after a rum drink or two, this shrimp dish will make you sweat. The Graycliff chowder ($8) was prepared with shrimp and conch meat suffused in a roasted vegetable and habañero purée. Thick, with just enough spice to remember, it was a chowder with zing. Service was always prompt and friendly at La Bodeguita. The waitstaff took time to explain dishes, particularly the daily specials, and made suitable recommendations. Entrée-wise, the ropa vieja ($18) featured fork-tender meat, with shredded skirt steak, chili peppers and yellow rice, with plantanos maduros (sweet plantains pan-fried in oil). The nearly caramelized plantains added a homey sweetness to the plate. Arroz con pollo ($17.50) was the most basic and the blandest dish I had at La Bodeguita. There was no fault with the preparation; it just wasn’t very adventurous, but then again, many diners aren’t. The braised chicken came with yellow rice and plantanos maduros. I loved the coconut-crusted snapper ($21). Two crisp fillets sat atop boniato mash (creamy white sweet potatoes) and wilted greens. Lime butter oozed over the lush dish. The coconut crust in this case was more like panko bread crumbs than flaky coconut, but packed more flavor. Just had to try a side of fried yucca ($4.50). It was worth it. The yucca was cut into thick Frenchfry-like pieces. Hot and meaty, almost doughy, they quickly disappeared. La Bodeguita has an appealing Cuban cocktail list, a worthy and reasonably priced wine list, and an outstanding menu of aged sipping rums from all over the Caribbean. Prices are mostly $8 to $12 per pour with a few uncommon exceptions, like the ultra-smooth Pryat Cask 23 from Anguilla, $22 per pour. Desserts do not disappoint. Mr. Johnson’s rum chocolate cake ($8.50) was a dense, ultra-chocolate cake made with Callebaut chocolate rum sauce. This was a

A community health education series from Stanford Hospital & Clinics

New Tools, New Anesthesia, New Therapy Mean Big Changes in Hip Replacement David Heuck is a lot like most people when something hurts and doesn’t get better. “I just didn’t want to go in to see my doctor,” he said. “I didn’t want someone to tell me I’d have to have something done.”

As far as Heuck was concerned, that fixed the problem and life went on as usual. Two years ago, however, he played golf two days in a row. The next day, “all of a sudden, I had some pretty intense pain in my hip. I didn’t think much of it. I figured I’d tweaked something the wrong way,” he said. But it didn’t go away, and it didn’t go away, and Heuck turned to some online medical information which made him think he had bursitis, an inflammation in a joint that can resolve itself. “I was pretty good at compartmentalizing things,” he said. “I just gimped along.”

“It gets depressing when you can’t do things you normally would do. I just got to the point of thinking, ‘This is how it’s going to be.’” – David Heuck, patient, Stanford Hospital & Clinics Miller is Matt Miller, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon at Stanford Hospital & Clinics, with a Stanford University undergraduate degree in human biology and a cum laude graduate of Boston University School of Medicine. His special interest and training is in minimally invasive techniques for hip and knee replacements and design of hip and knee implants and instrumentation. He has also done more than 750 hip and knee replacements. Miller represents a generation of surgeons “who grew up playing video

games, so surgical techniques like arthroscopy, working from a monitor and using instruments to do something on a different plane make sense to us,” he said. “It’s about relearning what you’re supposed to look for, where vital structures After David Heuck played golf two days in a row, he developed an intense pain in his are and how to hip. He thought he’d tweaked something, but the pain didn’t go away. use the newer instruments to protect those structures.” All went well with Heuck’s surgery, and when he was back at work only Miller is also part of the broadening six days after Miller replaced his hip, trend throughout surgical specialties to walking unassisted, some of Heuck’s use smaller incisions, an approach that colleagues thought he’d decided not to reduces tissue damage, which can rehave the surgery after all. duce surgical pain and recovery time. With hip replacements, the introduction of minimally invasive techniques, in combination with changes in anesthesia and rehabilitation has transformed a once-lengthy and very painful operation. “It is still a serious procedure, however,” Miller said, “and patients should exhaust non-operative measures first.

Smaller can mean faster In Heuck’s first meeting with Miller, the physician was very direct. “You’ve exhausted your non-operative options,” Miller said, “and your best option is to have the hip replaced.” Heuck’s left hip had never formed properly that had cause the difference in his leg lengths and it failed quickly, relative

When he played catch with his son, he could only go for balls on one side of his body. When he bent down, it was an awkward, stork-like movement. He couldn’t walk uphill or stand for any length of time. The pain was constant, even waking him at night. “It gets depressing when you can’t do things you normally would do,” Heuck said. “I just got to the point of thinking, ‘This is how it’s going to be.’ “

Trying something different This April, he walked up in front of an audience to give a presentation and his doctor happened to be there. Afterwards, he came over to Heuck and said, “What is up with you? Go get an MRI.” Within minutes of the MRI test’s end, “the guy who’s reading the results tells Page 38ÊUÊÕ}ÕÃÌÊ£™]ÊÓ䣣ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞ

Norbert von der Groeben

At 51, Heuck is the father of two young children, a busy executive and a guy who likes to be active. Golf is part of his daily environment and he enjoys the game. He’d been active in sports in his youth, but around the time he turned 14, that stopped being so easy when his lower back began to hurt. A doctor told him it was because his legs were different lengths. “Go to a shoe repair person and have an insert made,” the doctor said. The back pain stopped.

me he’s surprised I’m even walking,” Heuck said. His doctor began a search for someone to help. “He asked around and talked to people and gave me Dr. Miller’s name. He said Miller was doing some new procedures that maybe were a little bit less invasive,” said Heuck.

Minimally invasive hip replacement surgery meant David Heuck was able to return to work six days after his surgery, and, instead of having to wait months to get back to Norbert von der Groeben playing golf, he was back on the course in six weeks.

Getting a New Hip

t Replacing the hip joint means putting a new covering on the socket, located in the pelvis and creating a whole new version of the ball-shaped top of the femur that fits into the socket. A metal stem is inserted about six inches deep into the femur, with a ball, usually metal, anchored to its tip to complete the mechanism. t Hip replacement surgery may still mean restrictions on certain kinds of movement, like jogging or high-impact sports. t When properly cared for, a well-positioned hip replacement can last for 20 years or more.

t Replacing the ball and socket hip joint is a relatively new surgery the first routinely successful modern procedures were performed in the 1950s and 1960s. Now, more than 300,000 hip replacements are conducted each year in the US. t Most hip replacement candidates are between 60 and 80 years old, but barring other health conditions, there is no weight or age limit. t All our joints are cushioned by cartilage; when it is damaged or wears away, the absence of a cushion means pain from bone on bone contact. The hip is the largest joint in the body, the primary support of our body weight. t The hip joint can deteriorate for many reasons; the most common is the effect of osteoarthritis, where the cartilage that cushions the movement of our bones wears away. t Without that cushion, every movement of a joint becomes painful, even while resting, day or night. Being overweight also puts stress on the hip joints. t Some sports activities may mean harder wear and tear on hip joints, and hip replacement at an earlier age. t The pain may be dull and aching, or sharp. A worn-out hip joint may cause lower back or knee pain, too.

Miller explained what he wanted to do: Instead of a 10- to 12-inch incision, a three-to four-inch incision; instead of a general anesthesia, which often causes postoperative nausea and mental confusion, a spinal anesthesia, which would avoid that side effect and dampen nerve fibers that respond to surgical pain.

quicker so they can get back to work and get back to life.” – Matt Miller, MD, orthopaedic surgeon, Stanford Hospital & Clinics

Before his surgery, Heuck and his wife, Janie, had to attend a pre-surgery class, of sorts, to learn what to expect. Heuck said he was surprised at first because he was 20 years younger than everyone else. Then, as the class continued and the instructor was explaining about drains and bandages, Heuck said, she kept turning to him and saying, “Oh, you won’t have that with Dr. Miller,” Heuck began to appreciate how his hip replacement might be different from most. “I don’t think I had a full appreciation of how wonderful it was going to be,” said Janie Heuck. “It was all new to

With newly-designed instrumentation that allows less damage to muscles, through that smaller incision, the kind of fast recovery Heuck experienced is now possible. “Healthy, younger patients can go home the morning after,” Miller said. “The goal is to get people healed quicker so they can get back to work and get back to life.” The smaller incision surgery is more technically demanding, Miller said. “You have to know how to look at things, to know what you’re looking for. You have to have lots of experience and specific training with hips and knees

“It’s changed the quality of our life, for sure.” – Janie Brooks Heuck Heuck told Miller he never felt any pain at all. They left at 11 am the next day, less than 48 hours after he emerged from the operating room. Heuck’s surgery was on a Thursday; he stopped taking pain medications on Monday evening. And, Wednesday, he went back to work, which brought those colleagues to wonder if he’d skipped the surgery. Six weeks after the surgery, Miller gave him the okay to play golf again, albeit sensibly, and Heuck went out onto the course for a bit. “It felt great,” he said. Norbert von der Groeben

After the surgery, Heuck would be given pain medications, but fewer narcotics, which can interfere with a patient’s ability to participate in therapy. Within hours of the surgery, Miller would be asking Heuck to get up right away, and expecting physical therapists to help Heuck walk and get himself in and out of bed. That kind of immediate activity, Miller said, can cut rehabilitation time to weeks instead of months.

to his age, Miller said. “That’s often the case.”

Back at work without any pain from his recent hip replacement surgery, David Heuck can walk and talk to colleagues, including John Buntin, without a second thought.

“My son is excited for his daddy to be able to run with him and I’m excited because he’ll be able to exercise with me,” Janie Heuck said. “It’s changed the quality of our life, for sure.”

Customers say the food is well worth the pretty penny, especially the salt and pepper calamari, shaking beef, clay pot cod and empress rice. Looking to take home a touch of Tamarine’s elegance?

If you’re trying to get away into the night, the whole package of world-class food, atmosphere and service at Evvia might be enough to make you say, “I think we’re alone now.” Just be sure to plan ahead and book your getaway a couple of days in advance. 420 Emerson St., Palo Alto; 650-326-0983.

Going solo has worked out for a lot of musicians: Paul Simon, Neil Young and Phil Collins, to name a few. And going solo for a good place to eat often works out as well, especially when that place is the uber-popular Café Borrone. General manager Marina Borrone, who owns the cafe with husband and chef Josh Pebbles, as well as her parents, remarks that, “Our guests always comment on the

vibrant, uplifting energy that our environment offers.” The cafe often serves as a stage for Clint Baker and the All Stars, who play New Orleans-style jazz and “who have stirred it up (there) for over 20 years,” she says. 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park; 650327-0830.

Sports Bar Sliders, pizza, wings — and a 110ounce “Beerzooka” to share with friends while cheering on your favorite teams on 13 HD-plasma-screen televisions — that’s an evening at The Old Pro, Palo Alto’s favorite sports-bar haunt. Want something classier? The Old Pro can serve up gustatory ambiance with classy dishes such as premium steaks and Prince Edward Island mussels. 541 Ramona St., Palo Alto; 650-326-1446.

Steak It ain’t much you’re asking, if you want the truth. You just want your steak to be both tender and flavorful. Like Queen, you want it all, and you want it now. So get a table at Fleming’s and order the bone-in filet, which isn’t on the menu. The bone brings full flavor back into the normally blander, but more tender cut, making this steak the best of both worlds. You can have it all. #2 Stanford Shopping Center, Palo Alto; 650-329-8457.

Hall of Fame: 1st Year If you’re in the mood (for steak) and the rhythm is right, take a slow ride to Sundance the Steakhouse for the slow-roasted prime rib. The Certified Angus house specialty, served with au jus and creamy horseradish, might as well be called the city specialty by now. It cooks for more than eight hours, and you may want to savor it for just as long. 1921 El Camino Real, Palo Alto; 650-321-6798.

Sunday Brunch A classic local choice for Sunday brunch, St. Michael’s Alley oozes charm and the passion of a kitchen with high standards. Since opening its newer lunch-and-dinner venue at

All manner of eggs and pancakes as well as salads, pasta and sandwiches — but not reservations — are available in the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. brunch window. St. Michael’s Alley also shined for ambiance. 806 Emerson St., Palo Alto. 650-3262530.

Sushi/Japanese Restaurant Fuki Sushi was named a favorite by readers for its professional standards of service, dedication to authenticity, delicately calming geometrical decor and ultra-fresh seafood. Customers can enjoy their tataki, donburi, gyoza, udon and tempura in the more spacious dining areas, or reserve smaller tatami rooms for private meals, optionally followed by a relaxing, romantic kona coffee ice cream dessert. 4119 El Camino Real, Palo Alto; 650-494-9383.

Thai Restaurant A craving for mango chicken, hot soups, curries, roast duck, shrimp rolls or peanut-topped noodles leads the discerning local foodie to downtown Palo Alto powerhouse Siam Royal. The eatery makes generous use of sweet-and-sour flavors, basil, peppers and mint leaves in cooking up a robust signature taste that readers have voted the best in Thai cuisine. 338 University Ave., Palo Alto; 650329-8129.

Hall of Fame: 2nd Year David Cantwell of the ever-soulful Shady Lane, winner for Best Boutique, Best Gift Shop and Best Jewelry Store.

Whether you choose from the array of brightly-colored flora, dried flower arrangements or even gifts, you’ll notice

there’s something special about Michaela’s Flower Shop, a downtown Palo Alto mainstay for more than 40 years. Perhaps it’s the history — the shop was formerly named Stapleton Florist and run by a beloved couple of the same name. Maybe it’s the magic of brightly colored peonies, roses and carnations that have delighted many a newlywed and countless prom-bound teenagers. Can you guess the secret? 453 Waverley St., Palo Alto; 650321-5390. michaelasflowershop. com

Midtown Realty presents... 308 DONOHOE ST., EAST PALO ALTO


f Among the artists participating in this year’s Palo Alto Festival of the Arts are: a: Sandy Kreyer — hand-painted, porcelain lidded jars and bowls; b: Hannie Goldgewicht — ceramic bowl with pine-needle basketry; c: Jenny Stepp — tables made of steel and kiln-fired glass and fused glass; d: Holly Tornheim — wooden ladle, part of her “art for the table” series, carved with hand and power tools; e: Kurt McCracken — low-fire raku in wheelthrown cubist pieces; and f: Sharon Jackman — wheel-thrown, highfire porcelain vase with a crystalline glaze, inspired by the natural world.

by Jeff Carr alk about surreal: A man recreates Octavio Ocampo’s “Visions of Quixote” in chalk on a 14-foot by 10-foot parcel of asphalt — without pay. It’s audacious, heroic even, and after the festival ends, passers-by on Tasso Street will be left with only the vague notion that once, something extraordinary took place here, before the rain and the traffic washed it away. The valiant knight-errant is Chris Brake, one of 60 street artists who will be performing live at the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts on Aug. 27 and 28. This year’s festival features gourmet food vendors, live bands, kids’ activities and a kinetic sculpture garden. All of that is peripheral, of course, to the more than 300 artists traveling from around the country to showcase and sell their work. “As cliche as it sounds, there’s truly something for everybody,” Claudette Mannina said. She handles marketing for MLA Productions, which has run the festival for many years. “We put a lot of care into ensuring there’s a really strong variety.” That includes a strong variety of artists whose works would make bold, tasteful additions to any home. For those looking for potentially functional pieces to spice up their living quarters, here are a few artists to watch out for. Jenny Stepp Roseville artist Jenny Stepp calls her small, square table a “statement piece.” It represents the fusion of her two principal media — steel and glass — and traverses other boundaries as well. “Every bit of this was chosen for aesthetic value,” she says, but one can’t help envisioning it next to the front door under a set of keys. It’s undeniably practical. Stepp says she’s most intrigued by steel, which she manipulates through heat forming, welding and other means, and she adds glass for the bright color contrast. Visitors to Stepp’s booth at the festival can expect to see the table and a variety of steel-and-glass sculptures and wall hangings inspired by the artist’s curiosity and personal life path. Holly Tornheim The term “woodworking” doesn’t really do justice to Holly Tornheim’s work. That denotes bed frames, cabinets, the sort of bulky things that constituted her previous work as a carpenter. First introduced to wood when building a house in the foothills near her home in Nevada City, Calif., Tornheim was drawn to its feel, its life and the opportunity to use local materials. After her daughter was born, though, she no longer wished to frequent construction sites, so she sought other opportunities to create. She now produces small wood sculptures inspired by water, such as “Wave,” in which her medium almost resembles the flowing, splashing chocolate from a Hershey’s commercial. The same smoothness and fluidity applies to her “Art for the Table” line as well, which includes bowls, serving spoons and the like. Hannie Goldgewicht When admirers learn that Hannie Goldgewicht grew up in Costa Rica, they nod understandingly. “I can see where you get your colors,” they say.

Festival of the Arts (continued from page 59)

Southern California, shrugs it off. “I just like to find new colors,” she said. She can’t deny the Latin American influence on her work, however. On a trip to Argentina, the boyhood home of her husband, artist Leo Gotlibowski, she observed women weaving baskets from pine needles. For her, the idea to combine pine-needle basketry with ceramics simply “clicked,” she said. The bulk of Goldgewicht’s work now consists of two distinct parts: a lower half made of grog, a sandy ceramic material that lends itself to intense color and rough, earthy textures; and an upper half of pine needles bundled together almost like rope. The result is a line of vessels that are at once ancient and entirely new. Sharon Jackman What stands out about a Sharon Jackman piece is the tree. Literally, it snakes up and outward from the rest of the vessel, as though emerging organically from the otherwise smooth surface. Jackman’s “Cliff’s Edge” series, she says, celebrates the trees she has observed bursting from cliffsides, growing against all odds. To create the image, she starts by throwing a bowl on a pottery wheel in her Laguna Niguel, Orange County, studio. She then draws a tree in the clay’s leather-hard stage and carves out the negative space. She applies a soft clay called slip, adds color to the trunk, fires and coats the surface with a glaze that causes crystals to grow naturally. The crystalline glaze marks much of her work, lending it its shine and organic quality.

Kurt McCracken With Picasso-esque eyes, squared noses and ribbons of piano keys, much of Kurt McCracken’s work can be described in a way that most ceramics can’t: cubist. That’s not the only appellation that could apply to his work, though. One could just as easily say abstract, sharply colorful and huge. As part of his repertoire, the Clayton, Calif.-based artist makes vessels several feet tall, meaning there’s room for nearly any combination of colors and forms on his canvas of clay. Sandy Kreyer Sandy Kreyer, of Long Beach, sells her pottery with labels like “flower pot” and “coffee mug,” which is helpful, because one would otherwise be prone to place it on the mantle, under the spotlight. In fact, Kreyer’s work aims to bring life and beauty to the mundane tasks, like holding the cinnamon. Hand-painted flowers adorn each of her works, and patterns evoke past luxury — like a girl’s dream tea set, only classier. N Editorial Intern Jeff Carr can be emailed at

FORECLOSURES Foreclosures are provided by California REsource, a real estate information company that obtains the information from the County Recorder’s Office. The date is the recorded date of the deed when the lender took title to the property. The price is what the lender paid for it (usually the mortgage balance plus foreclosure fees). Each property is now owned by the lender and is for sale, or will be for sale soon, individually or through public auction. Individuals should contact a Realtor for further information.
