 # " $!$ Obstetricians Karen Shin and Mary Parman spend their days caring for patients and delivering babies. When each doctor became pregnant with her ďŹ rst child, the choice of where to deliver was clear: right here where she delivers her patients’ babies — Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. “ When you’ve seen how skilled and supportive the physicians, nurses and staff are, you instinctively want that level of care for you and your baby. â€? !  0  "    %"  labordelivery.lpch.org

CIVIC CENTER, 250 HAMILTON AVENUE BROADCAST LIVE ON KZSU, FM 90.1 CABLECAST LIVE ON GOVERNMENT ACCESS CHANNEL 26

If I had hair, my hair would be on fire.

— Palo Alto parent Ken Dauber, referring to results of a student “Developmental Assets Survey� indicating that 47 percent of high school seniors are “vulnerable or at risk.�

Around Town COUPLE ARRESTED FOR DUI AT GOLF COURSE ... A man and woman who allegedly had a drinking rendezvous at the Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course netted double DUI arrests for Palo Alto police Jan. 31, but not before the man allegedly caused three accidents, police said. The woman, 39-yearold Jung Sang Lee of Palo Alto, and 43-year-old Soo Ha Woo from Santa Clara, were mutual acquaintances and had been drinking at the golf course, according to police spokeswoman Officer Marianna Villaescusa. PALO ALTO RESIDENT WITH WEBCAM WARNS OF INTRUDER ... A techsavvy homeowner on Tennyson Avenue in Palo Alto used a webcam to record footage of a suspicious man taking pictures of his house and apparently trying to open his front door Feb. 4. The morning incident in the 400 block of Tennyson surprised the resident, who reported the situation at 10 a.m. to Palo Alto police and emailed a warning to neighborhood leaders. THE GRINCH STOLE THE SUKKAH, THEN CHRISTMAS ... All Abraham Berman wanted to do was put up his homemade sukkah (a small booth with curtain walls, a bamboo roof and ornaments dangling from the ceiling) on the second-floor patio of Sheridan Apartments in Palo Alto. But despite his 11-year tradition, the Palo Alto Housing Corporation nixed his effort to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot in October, citing its ban on personal objects in public areas. The nonprofit that manages his apartment complex then banned all religious symbols in public spaces — including the Christmas tree, which was never Berman’s aim. “I’m not here to disturb anybody or to violate any rules,� Berman said. “I’m just trying to create a ‘house of peace’ — that’s all I want to do.� HALLUCINOGENIC-MUSHROOM SALE GOES AWRY ... A Palo Alto teen’s attempt to purchase hallucinogenic mushrooms ended in a robbery and his being punched by three other youths on June 8, a Palo Alto police spokesman said June 16. The 16-year-old victim met up with the three youths, ages 15, 16 and 17, at about 9:30 p.m. in the 3000 block of Ventura Court, which is between Ventura Avenue, Park

Boulevard and El Camino Real, to purchase the mushrooms. He was robbed of his money and cell phone during the transaction, police Detective Sal Madrigal said. ROBBER STOPS AT STARBUCKS, READS NEWSPAPER, GETS NABBED ... Mountain View police arrested a man June 17 just a few blocks from the bank they allege he had robbed about a half hour earlier. Lawrence Petitta, 53, was taken into custody inside the Starbucks located at 750 Castro St. — where a plainclothes detective found him reading a newspaper less than 30 minutes after employees of the California Bank & Trust, located around the corner at 700 W. El Camino Real, reported they had been robbed by an individual matching his description, Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said. DRIVER FOLLOWS GPS, GETS STUCK ON CALTRAIN TRACKS ... A woman driving a Toyota Corolla got stuck on the Caltrain tracks near East Meadow Drive in Palo Alto July 20 when she made a wrong turn onto the tracks, Caltrain spokeswoman Tasha Bartholomew said. The woman was apparently following directions on a GPS device when she inadvertently turned onto the tracks at approximately 9:40 p.m., Bartholomew said. When the woman realized her error — about 20 to 25 feet down the train right-of-way — she attempted to turn the car around, at which point the frame of the car got stuck on the tracks, Bartholomew said. The driver flagged down passersby and asked them to call 911. BOMB SQUAD CLOSES PALO ALTO STREET ... Discovery of a World War II-era Japanese mortar forced the closure of part of Grove Avenue in Palo Alto on Oct. 3. Hal Knowlton, 87, found the 3-inch-diameter shell while cleaning his garage. He took the mortar outside and set it on the planter box, then returned to his home to call police, he said. Police closed off the 3800 block of Grove and notified nearby residents of the quiet street they might have to evacuate. The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s bomb squad arrived and dismantled the mortar, which Knowlton estimated was about 9 to 10 inches long. ■

“Frankly, a great many of our constituents are convinced that the (California) High-Speed Rail Authority has already wandered so far afield that it is too late for a successful course correction.

The lawmakers proposed using Caltrain tracks for high-speed rail, a proposal the Authority later adopted in its business plan.

“If we didn’t have binding arbitration, decisions would’ve been made earlier, and we’d have a budget that works.�

— Councilman Greg Schmid, just before the council approved expansion of Stanford University Medical Center, the largest development in the city’s history.

— Councilman Greg Scharff, after the council voted 5-4 to place a repeal of binding arbitration on the November ballot. Voters approved the repeal, and the city is no longer required to enter binding arbitration with its public-safety unions.

2O11 LOOKING BACK

p h o t o g r a p h s b y Ve r o n i c a We b e r, with Kimihiro Hoshino

LIFE IN PALO ALTO INCLUDED POLITICAL AND ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

C

hange, celebration and reflection marked the year in Palo Alto through the eyes of Palo Alto Weekly photographers. There were miraculous births, such as that of baby Samuel Martz, who was born at just 24 weeks gestation at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. And there were notable deaths: Palo Alto lost an icon when Apple cofounder and CEO Steve Jobs died on Oct. 5 of complications from pancreatic cancer, prompting an outpouring of tributes. “Thanks for changing the world. You made a big difference,” Libby Spier, 8, wrote on a sidewalk in front of the Jobs home. (continued on next page)

At right: Samuel Martz is gently touched by dad Steve Martz at the neonatal intensive-care unit at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital on May 18.

Above middle: Reggie Smith, defensive back for the San Francisco 49ers, tests out the shoulder press at the 49ers Academy middle school in East Palo Alto Oct. 10. The football players helped install the equipment. Above: Yasmin Simon, 8, runs through Patrick Dougherty’s environmental art installation outside the Palo Alto Art Center in February. The installation continues until Jan. 30, 2012.


Cover Story

Another icon, the Palo Alto Bowl, closed its doors Sept. 16, leaving the Midpeninsula without a bowling alley for the first time in decades. The area hosted President Barack Obama a handful of times, including town-hall events sponsored by Facebook in Palo Alto and LinkedIn in Mountain View. Meanwhile, Palo Altans demonstrated their displeasure with big corporations and the government at a few Occupy Palo Alto events, one in front of Bank of America in October. As it always does, the Baylands offered a refuge for tranquility and reflection to residents this year. In June, it was also a silent witness to a plane crash near the Palo Alto Municipal Airport; no one was injured. N Above left: Janessa Lambert of the Sylix nation in Keremeos, British Columbia, dances during the women’s jingle competition May 8 at the Stanford Powwow. Above: President Barack Obama addresses a question posed by a LinkedIn member, far left, about what will happen to social security and Medicare, as LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner listens Sept. 26. Left: Michael Avelino of the team “Rock and Stone” aims for one remaining pin during a game at the Palo Alto Bowl on Aug. 31. Below left: Tom Seligman, left corner, director of the Cantor Arts Center, watches as workers install the last piece of Richard Serra’s large steel sculpture at the museum July 21. Below: A Cessna plane crashed in the Baylands adjacent to the Palo Alto Municipal Airport on June 24.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a Draft Negative Declaration has been prepared by the Palo Alto Department of Planning and Community Environment for the project listed below. In accordance with A.B. 886, this document will be available for review and comment during a minimum 20-day inspection period beginning January 3, 2012 through January 23, 2012 during the hours of 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon and 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. at the Development Center, 285 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, California. You may send your comments to transportation@ cityofpaloalto.org or mail at Transportation Division, 250 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94301. This item will be considered at a public hearing by the Planning and Transportation Commission on Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 at 6:00 P.M. in the Palo Alto City Council Chambers on the ďŹ rst oor of the Civic Center, located at 250 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, California. North California Avenue Safe Routes to School/TrafďŹ c Calming Project: The project consists of four speed tables on North California Avenue between MiddleďŹ eld and Greer Road, warning signs and Sharethe-Road pavement markings (sharrows) along the south side of North California Avenue between MiddleďŹ eld and Louis Road. A speed table is 22 feet long in the travel direction, comprised of a 7-foot approach ramp, 8-foot at section three inches high, and a 7-foot departure ramp. The Sharrow is used to inform both motorists and bicyclists of the safe positioning of the bicycle on a roadway with on-street parallel parking and without bike lanes. It is intended to reduce the chance of drivers opening doors of parked vehicles in the path of bicyclists and to alert road users within a narrow traveled way of the lateral location where bicyclists ride. The project, as described above, was installed in September 2010 as a trail installation to assess the effectiveness of the trafďŹ c calming measures. The trial phase appeared successful and the project is now proposed as a permanent installation. *** Curtis Williams, Director of Planning and Community Environment In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, listening assistive devices are available in the Council Chambers and Council Conference Room. Sign language interpreters will be provided upon request with 72 hours advance notice.

She was 84. She earned a bachelor's degree in physics in 1949 at Bryn Mawr college (in Pennsylvania) and a master's in physics from the University of Minnesota a few years later. She married a fellow nuclear physicist, Sheldon Softky, and started a family in the Felton Gables neighborhood of Menlo Park in 1961. When government cutbacks shuttered Sheldon's research work, she took two part-time jobs in addition to raising two small boys: executive secretary of the Environmental Quality Coordinating Council and part-time reporter for the Country Almanac, a job she kept for 40 years. Those jobs exposed her to the issues and people involved in local environmental protection and landuse planning. She was involved with

The most prominent, Windy Hill, a favorite family gathering-spot, was visible from her room at The Sequoias in Portola Valley where she lived the last eight years.

ach year the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund raises money to support programs serving families and children in the Palo Alto area. Since the Weekly and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation cover all the administrative costs, every dollar raised goes directly to support community programs through grants to non-profit organizations ranging from $1,000 to $25,000. And with the generous support of matching grants from local foundations, including the Packard, Hewlett, Peery and Arrillaga foundations, your tax-deductible gift will be doubled in size. A donation of $100 turns into $200 with the foundation matching gifts. With your generosity, we can give a major boost to the programs in our community helping kids and families.

Give to the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund and your donation is doubled. You give to non-profit groups that work right here in our community. It’s a great way to ensure that your charitable donations are working at home.

PARIS

KEEPING

Top: A quiet scene at the Parc Monceau in Paris. Above left: A temple to the Roman prophetess Sybil at the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. Above right: The Cluny Museum, Paris’ national museum of the Middle Ages, has a medieval-style garden outside.

ne moment, Palo Alto author Jacqueline Widmar Stewart is lost in thoughts of a medieval garden, with its medicinal herbs and vinecovered trellises, its rose gardens for courtly love. The next, she’s praising contemporary engineering. Train tracks, she reflects, look much better with a park suspended above them. Both of the green spaces Stewart is thinking about are in Paris, where diverse centuries can be neighbors. “As with tapestry, park style often reflects the era of creation. A visit to parks around Paris means a trip through time as well as the many enjoyments of space,” Stewart writes. Her new book, “Parks and Gardens in Greater Paris,” is 200 pages of time travel. Stewart wove together her love for Paris, the environment and education to create it. This is the third book for Stewart, a Stanford Law graduate who has focused on writing instead of lawyering for the last decade. She first wrote about five parks near Chicago in “The Glaciers’ Treasure Trove: A Field Guide to the Lake Michigan Riviera,” then traveled to the country of her grandparents with “Finding Slovenia: A Guide to Old Europe’s New Country.” For “Glaciers,” Stewart set up her own publishing company, and

for “Slovenia,” her publisher hired a separate photographer. This is the first time that Stewart’s had a book professionally published with her own words and pictures. Stewart admits photography

hasn’t always come easily. For “Paris,” her publisher — the German publishing company Edition Axel Menges — kept having her go back and reshoot the photos. (continued on next page)

Paris gardens

(continued from previous page)

“We shot these four times,” Stewart says, smiling. “I got to know the parks well.” Making repeated trips to France wasn’t a hardship for Stewart and her husband, Blair, a fellow Stanford Law graduate. Stewart also knew that if she had to make the case for the importance of public lands, she had to have eye-catching color photos. Ultimately, she created a vivid walk through history, with scarlet autumn scenes and bright summer days, rivers and reflecting pools, forests and garden mazes. “They are such a part of every Parisian’s life. They use them as outdoor rooms,” Stewart says of the parks, recalling families on Sunday promenades, kids sailing boats, diners in fine park restaurants. The book begins with a historical overview. France evolves on the page from the forested world of the Roman Empire to a 9th-century place where Charlemagne issued decrees about the sorts of fruit trees to be planted on royal estates. Readers travel to medieval gardens and then to the Tuileries, the landmark park by designer André Le Nôtre that — in a groundbreaking move — was opened to the public in the 17th century. The 19th-century Second Empire played a major role in development. Stewart writes: “The signature grand green spaces of Paris derive from Napoleon III’s plan to improve Parisian

The silvery sphere of an Omnimax theater, together with a red folly, gives the Parc de la Villette in Paris a modern flair. life. Planted roadways radiating from circles — known as stars or étoiles — and the grand, wide tree-lined drives of Avenues Foch and Georges Mandel remain as archetypal elements of the style from the era.” Moving forward, Stewart discusses artists Monet and Rodin and their gardens, and then comes into the present, with new parks and ecological practices. “The number of Paris parks, gardens and squares distributed throughout the city far exceeds four hundred and continues to grow in number,” she writes. Then Stewart illustrates this growth with pages and pages of bright color photos, making the book feel like an exhibition catalogue of grassy canvases. It’s hard to find Roman ruins in Paris, but Stewart does include a photo of the (restored) sport arena at the Arènes du Lutèce. In the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, a 19th-century park built at a former Roman quar-

ry, a temple to the Roman prophetess Sybil sits high on a cliff. More well-known are the gardens at the Cluny medieval museum, made to recall the Middle Ages with the kitchen, herb, symbolic and rose gardens. Stewart’s photo depicts a woman reading in the garden with the Gothic architecture of the museum behind her. Stewart’s words hark back to the rise of courtly love: “Medieval parks created a world of fantasy for romantic encounters; enclosed gardens set the stage.” Stewart includes many images of famous sweeping spaces such as the Tuileries, the Chateau de Fontainebleu, Versailles and the Palais Royal. In the verdant Bois de Boulogne woods, Stewart finds a Swiss chalet and a bridge that seems made of curving fairytale branches. Despite the enchanted scenery of centuries past, Paris is a modern city, and Stewart’s photos are ultimately forward-looking. They depict the ef-

forts in the 20th and 21st centuries to preserve open space in and around the capital city. Some conceal a less picturesque past. The Jardin Atlantique, which opened in 1994, manages to site a meditation garden atop a train station. The park sits on a roof above the Gare Montparnasse, with tennis courts and a fountain. In the Parc de Bercy, wisteria covers terraces to create peaceful green shade, and a stadium roof is landscaped with grass to blend right in. One spot tips a hat to the past. In the 19th century, according to the book, the Bercy area used to be a wine-warehousing district, with train cars carrying wine barrels. Now there are grape arbors in the Parc de Bercy, and the wine is flowing again. Meanwhile, the Parc de la Villette used to be the site of a slaughterhouse. It’s an urban playground dreamed up by architect Bernard Tschumi in the 1980s. The place has a public-art spirit, sporting a red folly (a non-functional decoration) that looks like a futuristic factory with a mural of cows. In one of Stewart’s most striking photos, a huge silver globe of an Omnimax theater, La Géode, reflects the clouds and sky. Stewart says she hopes to inspire readers with the spirit of design and environmental mitigation seen in these parks. “I look at the steel mills in Gary, Indiana, and think, ‘Why can’t we be like the French?’” She credits Keeble & Shuchat Photography in Palo Alto for much of her photography skill. For years,

the people there have helped her buy better camera equipment and encouraged her to take courses at the shop, which she did. “When I needed to replace my camera some 15 years ago they told me to spend a couple extra dollars and get a great lens — the Carl Zeiss. I couldn’t believe how painterly the shots were. Without those photos, I never would have considered writing a book,” she said. When she was choosing the topic for her third book, Paris seemed a natural fit, Stewart said. She and her family have been going to France for 25 years to visit friends, and all speak French. Over the years, Stewart also got to know people who worked in Parisian parks. “I write to learn, share and remember. We all love Paris in my family,” she said. “It’s hard to think of a place where you wouldn’t want to be more.” N What: Palo Alto author Jacqueline Widmar Stewart will give a talk on her book “Parks and Gardens in Greater Paris.” Where: Books Inc., 74 Town & Country Village, Palo Alto When: Saturday, Jan. 7, at 3 p.m. Cost: Admission is free.

Conchiglie in crema di Zucca e Ricotta Pumpkin as an ingredient in cooking is a relatively recent development, by Italian standards. Since the 1500s, once pumpkins were imported from the Americas, they were grown everywhere and were cheap, so even the poorest of the poor were able to enjoy them, this with the goal of getting a cheap but nutritious and savory meal. The home of this pumpkin pasta recipe lies between Mantua and Ferrara. In fact, their origins hark back to the times of the Este court in Ferrara, famous also for the refinement of its cuisine. The master of banquets, 'IOVANNI"ATTISTA2OSSETTI HADALREADYMENTIONEDITINHISRECIPEBOOKIN however the Gonzaga family, sitting rulers of Mantua during the same period, who also claimed ownership of the recipe.

crude gesture. One hour, 41 minutes. — Peter Canavese (Reviewed Dec. 2, 2011)

The Artist --(Palo Alto Square) Any filmgoer undaunted by something a little different will surely walk out of this brand-new silent film with a big grin. Though this pastiche has been crafted by film nerds and largely for them, Michel Hazanavicius’ feature has an emotional generosity that speaks louder than words. Opening in 1927, “The Artist� begins with a premiere of the latest silent film starring the dashing George Valentin (Jean Dujardin). When Valentin stumbles into a photo op with a girl named Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo), the ground for a relationship is paved. Plucked from obscurity, Peppy sees her star begins to rise in proportion to George’s fall, precipitated by the arrival of talkies and the market crash of 1929. Writer-director Hazanavicius mostly steers clear of comparisons to the era’s epics and great screen comics, instead inhabiting the more manageable territory of melodrama. The acting is inventive, and the film joyously celebrates the movies. Rated PG-13 for a disturbing image and a

The Descendants --1/2 (Aquarius, Century 20) George Clooney plays Matt King, a lawyer and hapless father troubleshooting domestic and business concerns in a Hawaii he drily notes is not the “paradise� mainlanders imagine. King’s petulance derives mostly from his wife being in a coma due to a boating accident, and his inability to do anything about it. As a father, he’s clumsy at best; by pampering 10-year-old Scottie (Amara Miller), Matt hopes to distract her from her mother’s decline. No such trickery works on 17-year-old Alexandra (Shailene Woodley), a borderline delinquent who won’t be handled. Matt’s business issue involves his role as trustee of his family’s ancestral land: 25,000 pristine acres in Kauai that will bring the Kings a pretty penny if they can agree on a buyer. As this subplot lingers in the background, Matt becomes obsessed with a third concern: investigating a secret about his wife that surfaces early in the picture. Three guesses as to what that might be, but it provides the excuse for

the Kings to island-hop and family-bond in search of closure about Mom. Rated PG for some mild rude humor. One hour, 38 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Nov. 25, 2011) The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo --(Century 16, Century 20) Not exactly lean, but plenty mean, David Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s mystery novel judiciously pares down 480 pages to 158 minutes. It’s hard not to feel Fincher’s film is old news, after Larsson’s widely read “Millenium� trilogy (2005-2007) and the Swedish films starring Noomi Rapace as the punk hacker hero Lisbeth Salander. On the other hand, this is the film the novel has been waiting for: a crisp handling of the complex narrative that’s visually striking and impeccably acted. Lisbeth (Rooney Mara) is a vivid and compelling character. A superheroic sociopath in black leather and piercings, Lisbeth suffers no fools, unless as a means to the fool’s end. Though the mystery cannot hope to engross as deeply as it does on the page, Fincher’s version is intelligent, properly moody and faithful enough. Rated R for brutal violent content including rape and torture, strong


sexuality, graphic nudity and language. Two hours, 38 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Dec. 23, 2011) Hugo ---1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) Director Martin Scorsese’s affection for all things cinema has never been more evident than in the enchanting and imaginative “Hugo.�Young Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield) lives alone in the hollowed walls of a Paris train station, orphaned following the death of his father (Jude Law). Hugo is desperate to finish repairing the automaton — an old robotic figure — that he and his dad had been working on, occasionally forced to steal mechanical parts from a toy shop. The shop’s enigmatic owner (Ben Kingsley as Georges Melies) catches Hugo in the act and confiscates Hugo’s journal: a booklet with his father’s sketches of the automaton’s inner workings. Georges’ goddaughter Isabelle (Chloe Grace Moretz) agrees to help Hugo get his journal back, setting off a series of mysterious events that click and whirl with the rhythm of a finely tuned clock. Rated PG for mild thematic material, some action/peril and smoking. Two hours, 6 minutes. — T.H. (Reviewed Nov. 25, 2011) Rated PG for some mild rude humor. One hour, 38 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Nov. 25, 2011) New Year’s Eve -1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) In the 1970s, Irwin Allen produced disaster movies packed with random stars. Although “New Year’s Eve� is a romantic comedy, the word “disaster� still comes to mind. Is it me or is Hollywood making movies on dares now? How else to explain all-star weirdness like this film’s nutty, chaste antiromance between a shuckin’ and jivin’ Zac Efron and dowdy cougar Michelle Pfeiffer? Has the world gone crazy? Perhaps director Garry Marshall is crazy like a fox. On the evidence of the recent “Valentine’s Day,� “New Year’s Eve� is likely to pack ‘em in. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see Ashton Kutcher and Lea Michele (“Glee�) stuck in an elevator, “SNL�’s Seth Meyers tangle with German superstar Til Schweiger, and the apocalyptic signifier of a movie whose mix-n-match cast includes Robert De Niro, Hilary Swank, Sarah Jessica Parker and at least one New Kid on the Block? In terms of sophistication, it’s the movie equivalent of eight romance novels. Rated PG-13 for language including some sexual references. One hour, 58 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Dec. 9, 2011) Shame --(Aquarius) Steve McQueen’s “Shame� is a mood piece, as abstract and engrossing as the Bach piano selections on the soundtrack. It’s another impressive showcase for the subtle work of Michael Fassbender, who bares all to play a sex addict. Brandon lives and works in skyscraping, hermetically sealed chambers, flashing a Mona Lisa smile to create just enough of an appearance of normality to deflect inconvenient questions. There’s one person from whom Brandon can’t hide, much as he tries: his sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan). Sissy storms the castle and Brandon cannot refuse her request to stay for a spell. Quickly, we’re led to wonder if part of Brandon’s neurosis involves carrying a torch for his torch-singing sis. In a scene that competes to be Brandon’s ultimate nightmare, his manic, married boss (James Badge Dale) makes — right in front of Brandon — an aggressive bid to bed Sissy, following a performance of “New York, New York� that moves her brother to tears. Mulligan does her most impressive work yet in conveying her character’s sloppy, sad neediness, but the picture belongs to her co-star. Fassbender makes a case for himself as the next Jeremy Irons, taking on mostly serious-minded work and quietly revealing tormented men from inside-out embodiment. Rated NC-17 for some explicit sexual content. One hour, 41 minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Dec. 23, 2011)

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows ---1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) Director Guy Ritchie’s 2009 “Sherlock Holmes� film seemed to split viewers. Some applauded the strong cast, solid production values and interesting blend of mystery and action. Others argued Holmes was too reliant on his fighting abilities. “Shadows� probably won’t make any converts out of the second group, although the inclusion of Holmes’ nemesis, Professor James Moriarty, will be welcome to Holmes traditionalists. The first group, however, will be thrilled with this follow-up that is funnier and more compelling than its predecessor. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law reprise their roles as Holmes and sidekick Dr. John Watson, with Jared Harris of TV’s “Mad Men� as Moriarty, a genius professor with nefarious plans. The duo finds assistance in the form of gypsy Madam Simza Heron (Swedish actress Noomi Rapace of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo�). Downey Jr. and Law make an exceptional tandem, and the musical score by Hans Zimmer is tremendous. Rated PG-13 for some drug material, intense sequences of violence and action. Two hours, nine minutes. — T.H. (Reviewed Dec. 16, 2011) Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy ---1/2 (Palo Alto Square, Century 20) Call the British foreign intelligence agency SIS or MI6, but le Carre’s characters call it “the Circus,� run by Control (John Hurt) out of smoke-filled rooms. In 1973, a botched attempt to discover the identity of a double agent results in a wounded field officer, international tensions and curtailed careers for Control and trusted lieutenant George Smiley (Gary Oldman). A civil servant asks Smiley to come out of retirement to root out the “mole� hiding within the Circus’ inner circle. With great subtlety, Oldman demonstrates what makes Smiley an extraordinary spy: his insistence on taking in more than he lets slip. Rated R for violence, some sexuality/nudity and language. Two hours, eight minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Dec. 23, 2011)

War Horse ---1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) The vast scope required for certain films, such as this harrowing World War I epic, has never intimidated Steven Spielberg. In fact, it seems to invigorate him. Now Spielberg works his cinematic magic again. Young Albert Narracott (Jeremy Irvine) bonds with a spirited horse his father brings home to plough the harsh land outside the family farm. Albert dubs the horse Joey and gets to work on training the clever animal. But the farm’s financial woes force Albert’s dad to sell Joey to the British Army at the onset of World War I, thus beginning an arduous journey. His odyssey brings him in contact with a host of varied caretakers, including a noble British officer (Tom Hiddleston) and a pair of German brothers (David Kross and Leonhard Carow). The production values here are exemplary, from the breathtaking cinematography by Janusz Kaminski (“Minority Report,� “Saving Private Ryan�) to the stitch-perfect costume design by Joanna Johnston (“Valkyrie�). Rated PG-13 for war violence. Two hours, 26 minutes. — T.H. (Reviewed Dec. 23, 2011) We Bought A Zoo -1/2 (Century 16, Century 20) Let me begin by saying something nice about this Cameron Crowe movie: Kids will probably like it. OK, that’s all I’ve got. Based on Benjamin Mee’s memoir, “Zoo� nominally retells how journalist and “adventure addict� Mee (Matt Damon) hauls his family off from the city to an outlying zoo. He inherits the professional staff, who are walking stereotypes: the hot zookeeper (Scarlett Johannson), her 12-year-old niece (Elle Fanning) and the hard-drinking Scottish zookeeper, an outright cartoon character played as such by Angus Macfadyen. If you have a high tolerance for cutesy, feel-good pap, “Zoo� slickly fills the bill. Rated PG for language and some thematic elements. Two hours, four minutes. — P.C. (Reviewed Dec. 23, 2011)

Special era in Stanford football comes to an end Monday night in the Fiesta Bowl by Rick Eymer e’ve seen Andrew Luck do some amazing things on the football field, rallying Stanford to victories, raising expectations higher than they’ve ever been before and having the program mentioned in the same breath as LSU, Alabama and national championship for the first time ever. We’ve seen Luck climb the rungs of the Stanford record book and put himself among the all-time greats in only three seasons. Luck, however, is much more than numbers, as we’ve also seen. And now, we’re going to see Luck for the final time. The winningest quarterback in Cardinal history will take the field for the last time in college on Monday night as fourth-ranked Stanford (11-1) meets third-ranked Oklahoma State (11-1) in the 41st edition of the Fiesta Bowl. The kickoff, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., is set for 5:30 p.m. It’s the last kickoff of the six major bowl games being played the same day, immediately following the Rose Bowl showdown between Pac-12 champion Oregon and Big 10 champion Wisconsin. Luck’s legacy will survive no matter the outcome. His remarkable 31-6 record as a starter takes care of that, along with consecutive runner-up finishes in Heisman Trophy voting and all the other accolades showered upon him from every corner of the college and professional football world. Stanford is currently favored over the Cowboys by 3 1/2 points in the first meeting between the two teams, although the schools have suddenly found their teams meeting in other sports this year. Stanford prevailed in men’s basketball, in the NIT Season Tip-Off, and women’s soccer, in the NCAA tournament. Luck has not engaged in much discussion of his future, which seems to be all but assured as the next No. 1 overall pick in the NFL. He prefers to remain firmly planted in the moment, allowing his mind to wander only when there is nothing else at stake. “I have tried not to reflect too much about the season with the game coming up,” Luck said this week. “I’m sure, after the Fiesta Bowl, I will be able to sit down and a thousand memo-

NATIONAL HONORS . . . Stanford senior Nnemkadi Ogwumike, who played her best on the national stage last week, was duly rewarded as she was named the United States Basketball Writer’s Association (USBWA) National Player of the Week on Tuesday. Ogwumike also was named Bank of the West Pac-12 Player of the Week for the second time this season on Monday. The senior forward put together a national player of the yearworthy effort in last week’s 97-80 win over Tennessee, setting career highs with 42 points and 19 field goals (in 27 attempts) while grabbing 17 rebounds. She also added three assists and a pair of blocks. It was Ogwumike’s first 40-point game, eclipsing her previous career high of 38 points set against Oklahoma at the 2010 Final Four. It was also just the seventh 40-point performance in Stanford history, tying for fourth on Stanford’s single-game scoring record list with Jeanne Ruark’s 42-point game against East Carolina on Dec. 20, 1979. . . . Stanford senior Teresa Noyola, whose playmaking prowess and ball-handling excellence helped lead her team to the 2011 national championship, has won the Honda Sports Award for soccer. Her selection by the Collegiate Women Sports Award Program recognizes Noyola as the country’s top female player in her sport. The senior midfielder from Palo Alto High scored the game-winning goal in Stanford ‘s 1-0 victory over Duke University at the NCAA College Cup finals. Noyola earned first-team All-American honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, becoming only the second Stanford player to receive three consecutive first-team honors. Stanford finished the season undefeated, and Noyola’s squad amassed a four-year record of 95-4-4. Noyola had 15 assists for the year and 60 in her college career, the second highest in Stanford history behind Christen Press. A math and computational science major, Noyola also was honored as the NSCAA and Pac12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She carried a 3.52 cumulative grade-point average through her junior year. The Honda Sports Award is presented annually to the top women athletes in 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports. As a Honda prize recipient, Noyola becomes a finalist for the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year and the prestigious Honda Cup.

First-year coach David Shaw (center) not only led Stanford onto the field this season, but guided the Cardinal to a 17-game win streak (dating to last year), an 11-1 record, a second straight BCS game and No. 4 national ranking.

Shaw’s first season answers questions about Stanford’s future by Keith Peters hen David Shaw was announced as Jim Harbaugh’s successor as Stanford’s head football coach last season, the first question regarding Shaw’s new job was inevitable. How could a rookie coach improve upon a 12-1 season that included a 40-12 victory over Virginia Tech in the BCS Orange Bowl? Shaw’s answer? Actions speak louder than words and Stanford proved that with an 11-1 record heading into Monday’s showdown with Oklahoma State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. Kickoff is 5:30 p.m. on ESPN. “It was weird after the (Orange) bowl game,” offensive guard David DeCastro said Wednesday as the Cardinal continued preparations for the Cowboys. “We didn’t know that was going to happen. Was Harbaugh coming back or was he leaving? It was kind of like 50/50, kind of a toss-up. “We weren’t surprised when he left, but with Coach Shaw coming in it was good. It was natural. He’s a good coach and he did an awesome job with the transition period, getting the new coaches in. He kept a lot of the same staff, same strength staff. I had a new O-line coach, but he’s done a great job. It was pretty seamless. The transition has worked out pretty well.” Having All-American quarterback Andrew Luck returning for a final season, of course, made Shaw’s job all the more easier. Still, Harbaugh took a few key coaches with him to the San Francisco 49ers, including defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. There were also the usual key losses to graduation, like All-American lineman Chase Beeler, so Shaw

W

didn’t get the key to his new car without first filling it with gas and kicking the tires. The fact Shaw didn’t have to move his family and only had to switch offices in the Stanford Athletic Department also made the transition easier for him and his players. “It was kind of weird having a guy that wasn’t the head coach go to head coach,” said DeCastro. “But, he’s done a fabulous job. He’s done nothing wrong. He’s take the head coaching job like he’s always had it, almost. It’s been really good.” Harbaugh stayed four years, finally providing consistency and success (29-21) after Walt Harris (2005-06) and predecessor Buddy Teevens (2002-04) went a combined 16-40 in a five-year span. Stanford went seven years without a winning season until Harbaugh turned things around in 2009 with an 8-5 mark and appearance in the Sun Bowl. Thus, there was concern when Harbaugh left. Would Stanford return to its losing ways, especially

after losing linebacker Shayne Skov to a season-ending injury early in the season? Shaw answered that with a schoolrecord 17 straight wins (dating to 2010), the longest such streak in the nation this year before Oregon ended it. The Cardinal bounced back from that loss, finished the season strong and earned its highest BCS ranking (No. 4) and most prestigious bowl game since playing in the Rose Bowl in the pre-BCS days. So, why has Shaw done so well so quickly? “He must have been born for this,” DeCastro said. “You can just tell. He doesn’t miss a beat. It’s like he’s had that role for a while.” It could be reasoned that Shaw was groomed for the job during his playing days as a wide receiver at Stanford from 1991-94. “I think it’s huge,” DeCastro said of that fact. “Any alumnus from Stanford is pretty proud of it, es(continued on next page)

pecially being a football player and coming back to coach his alma mater. I think it’s important he has a lot of pride in it, as well.” Senior tight end Coby Fleener is also a big fan of Shaw, who dramatically increased the team’s offensive production while working as the offensive coordinator the four previous seasons under Harbaugh. “I would saw it was a very smooth transition,” said Fleener, ranked among the top tight ends in the nation this season. “Coach Shaw was on our staff, so he understood the offense. And, keeping a lot of the staff together really made a smooth transition for all the players.” Equally important was how the team culture changed after Stanford reached the 2009 Sun Bowl and lost to Oklahoma while Luck missed the game with an injury. “I think there’s been huge strides since then,” Fleener said. “I’d say the culture has been the biggest thing. We went from a team that was happy to be winning and where winning was an unexpected turn of events, to a team that is expected to win, and if we didn’t win we are sorely disappointed. “I think in years past it was okay for Stanford to be very good at academics and mediocre at athletics, at least from a football realm. Coach Harbaugh and now Coach Shaw have pushed us to the point where we are expecting to win every game, or know that we will prepare to win every game, as opposed to prepare to give the other team a good game. That’s a huge change from four or five years ago when we could be the underdogs. Now, it’s to the point of where we have a bulls-eye on our back.” It’s a target Shaw and his players will gladly wear, because it means Stanford has arrived as a contender. It was only five years ago that Stanford went 1-11 under Harris. The Cardinal was 2-9 under Teevens in 2002 and 3-8 under Tyrone Willingham in 1998. Now, Stanford has produced the Heisman Trophy runner-up three straight seasons, earned back-toback bids to BCS bowl games, compiled a 23-2 record since last season and is bringing in a recruiting class that Luck says rivals his own. The days of just hoping to be bowl-eligible are gone. The talk is now about winning Pac-12 titles and, perhaps some day, a national championship. “It’s amazing,” said Jonathan Martin, regarded as one of the top offensive linemen in the nation. “When I sit down and think about it, I almost can’t even believe it. Being recruited, our expectations were to make bowl games. As a freshman, I don’t think the expectations were to make back-to-back BCS bowl games. You always have the goal of making BCS bowl games and winning the national championship, but to actually see it come to fruition is really amazing.” “It’s exciting,” said Fleener. “It’s exciting to have had a small part in helping to turn around the Stanford football program.” N

ries will flood in.” For Luck, it seems, there’s always something to solve, an architectural problem if not a defense to dissect. He’s become a little more comfortable talking to a large gathering than the day, in the stands at Palo Alto High School in August of 2009, when he was made available to the media for the first time after Jim Harbaugh announced that Luck had won the starting quarterback job. If Luck has ever said a mean thing about anybody, it has never been made public and that’s one of his strengths. His aw-shucks, boynext-door approach works. He was asked what wisdom his father, former NFL quarterback Oliver Luck, imparted over the years. “Just to respect people,” he said. “Simple things like that. Just to respect people.” Does he still need to show NFL scouts anything else in Monday’s game? “It is important I play a good

game,” Luck said. “I think I have a good body of work. And obviously I want to be successful in this game. But I approach it as trying to win, more than impress anybody.” Luck won’t have speedster receiver Chris Owusu as part of his arsenal, but he will have a full complement of tight ends as Zach Ertz returns from an injury to join Levine Toilolo and Coby Fleener to form a trio of productive tight ends, a rarity in college football these days. He’ll also have plenty of running backs, with Stepfan Taylor recording his second straight 1,000yard season. Jeremy Stewart, Tyler Gaffney, Anthony Wilkerson and fullback Ryan Hewitt form a strong support system. “Hopefully it will mean a lot with Zach, Coby and Levine on the field,” Luck said. “It presents interesting match-up problems. You can bring them down tight or spread them all out. Hopefully we will take advantage of those three guys on the field.” Griff Whalen is Stanford’s top receiving threat but 18 Cardinal players (including Luck) have caught at

least one pass. Perhaps as valuable as Luck is his offensive line that includes AllAmericans David DeCastro and Jonathan Martin, along with Cameron Fleming, Tyler Mabry, the top lineman off the bench, David Yankey and center Sam Schwartzstein. “They are one of the more interesting units on the football team,” Luck said. “They don’t want credit. They come to work and hang out with each other. They don’t talk to anybody else during practice.” How does Oklahoma State view Stanford? “They have a powerful offense, they have really good offensive linemen,” Cowboys’ defensive end Jamie Blatnick said. “It’s a different mindset you have to go into the game with. You have to be a bit more aggressive with it. You have to really get after them. You can’t stay in scheme for too long, you just have to get out there and play. It’s probably going to come down to the turnover battle. When you have two great teams like this, keeping one (continued on next page)

teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense off the field could be crucial.â&#x20AC;? Martin was similarly impressed with Oklahoma State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are very talented up front, very athletic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a lot of very fast linebackers and good pass rushers. They present some unique challenges and I would say this is the best team that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve faced so far.â&#x20AC;? The Cowboysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense likes to play faster than a speeding bullet and is just as potent as Oregon. Most observers are referring to the game as a potential shootout and both quarterbacks, Luck and OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Weeden, are capable of big plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time you run a play, you want to score a touchdown,â&#x20AC;? Luck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our defense likes getting a rest. Any time you can put long drives together, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.â&#x20AC;? Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense will be without Shayne Skov, but still has been able to produce with Jarek Lancaster and A.J. Tarpley taking over Skov in the middle and Trent Murphy and Chase Thomas on the outside. Lancaster is Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading tackler with 63, and Tarpley is third with 53. Safety Michael Thomas, Chase Thomas and corner Johnson Bademosi fill out the top five. Strong safety Delano Howell, who missed three games with an injury, is sixth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not making mistakes, protecting the football,â&#x20AC;? Luck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Executing,

thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the name of the game.â&#x20AC;? Luck has done that better than any Stanford quarterback in the 116 years the school has played football. Before he arrived, the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last double-digit win season came in 1992 and no Stanford team had ever won more than 10 games. Luck helped the Cardinal change its mindset on the sport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guys realized we can be successful,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was good to go to a bowl game (in 2009) and get that experience for a lot of guys and then realize weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to double our efforts if we want to go to a better bowl.â&#x20AC;? And the efforts have been tangible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It falls on the guys who have graduated and maybe didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to go to an Orange Bowl, who sort of laid the foundation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a little more satisfaction out

ON ANDREW LUCK On the keys to Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive success: â&#x20AC;&#x153;That Andrew Luck gets to the game on time.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coby Fleener On facing Andrew Luck: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, every game I go out there, I want to be the best quarterback on the field. A lot of people think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best quarterback in the country so it will be cool to just see where I stack up. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not looking at the game that way. I look it at as his good football team against my good football team.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; OSU QB Brandon Weeden â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure we faced somebody similar, but, you know, he is a unique individual. He is a much better athlete than I think a lot of people would anticipate. The catch he made against UCLA was just phenomenal. He is the total package. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he is predicted to be the first guy in the draft. Great player.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; OSU defensive coordinator Bill Young On what people will notice after watching Stanford play for the first time: â&#x20AC;&#x153;That Andrew (Luck) is really all heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cracked up to be. That he is the best player in the nation and he deserves that title.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Coby Fleener
