Local news, information and analysis

After resounding defeat, the lessons of Maybell How will voters’ rejection of Measure D impact Palo Alto? by Gennady Sheyner


ousing advocates clashed with neighborhood preservationists in Palo Alto on Election Night. When the dust settled, it wasn’t even that close. For advocates of Measure D, which lost by nearly 2,000 votes (44 percent to 56 percent), the election results spelled a bitter

end to a project that promised to expand the city’s sorely needed supply of affordable housing for seniors. For opponents, who concluded their election party with hugs and clinks of champagne glasses, the result was a victory for democracy and a resounding statement against the growing

density of new buildings in residential neighborhoods. “It restores faith in democracy, that ordinary citizens in Palo Alto can make a difference,” said Jen Fryhling, one of the leaders of the “Vote Against D” campaign. In the near term, the consequences of the Measure D vote are fairly clear. The 2.46-acre orchard site on Maybell and Clemo avenues will retain its existing zoning despite the council’s effort in June to change it to a “planned

community.” The Palo Alto Housing Corporation, the nonprofit developer that was planning to build 60 apartments for low-income seniors and sell the rest of the land to a developer for 12 market-rate homes, will now likely look elsewhere in its Sisyphean effort to bolster the city’s stock of affordable housing. And the old apricot orchard will remain an old apricot orchard until a new development proposal is submitted to the city. But the emphatic victory of the

anti-Measure D campaign leaves plenty of lingering questions that won’t be answered for months, if not years. How will Measure D affect other dense developments on the city’s horizon? Will the City Council reform the infamous “planned community” process that continues to frustrate the community? How will the citizen rebellion against the council influence the 2014 council election? ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊn®


New school district bullying policies given ‘green light’ by feds and state Final board decisions pending as committee examines remaining issues, options by Terri Lobdell



Twins Antwon and Sean Chatman, facing, who are peer mentors for One East Palo’s Sponsored Employment Program, meet with Executive Intern James Childs at a newly opened One East Palo Alto building in August.


Jobs and mentoring program sets youth on positive path Sponsored Employment Program gives high-risk young adults a chance to change their lives by Elena Kadvany


he Sponsored Employment Program is more than a summer job, participants and organizers of the East Palo Alto initiative say again and again. On paper, the program’s goal is to give disadvantaged East Palo Alto youth a summer job at local nonprofits, public agencies and private companies to teach them how to be professionals and stay off the streets. But the program’s supporters

testify that its work goes far beyond that. Take Claudia Gonzales, a 22-year-old with a 6-month-old daughter who graduated from this year’s program and was hired part-time by her summer employer. She’s from San Jose, where she became involved with gangs at a young age and soon had a criminal record. She didn’t finish high school, and only one person in her life — a cousin who moved to Idaho — ever support-

ed her or encouraged her to seek out a better life, she said. But because of the Sponsored Employment Program, she’s now employed part-time as an administrative assistant at TaxTime Solutions, an accounting firm in Menlo Park, and taking night classes to get her high school diploma.

fter spending 11 months working with federal and state agencies on developing new bullying policies and complaint procedures, the Palo Alto Unified School District could finally be poised to consider their adoption after receiving final approvals last week. If adopted, the new policies would bring the district into compliance with state anti-bullying laws that went into effect July 2012 and also meet requirements of a resolution agreement with the federal Office for Civil Rights in connection with the case of a middle school student bullied because of disability. The spotlight has been on the school district’s bullying policies ever since an investigation by the Office for Civil Rights, detailed in a report issued last December, revealed systemic shortcomings in Terman Middle School’s handling of a bullying complaint. The report documented a lack of organized inquiry, failure to interview witnesses, poor record-keeping, lack of familiarity with the law, inadequate training, piecemeal and ineffective measures to stop the bullying, and failure to adequately address the effects of the hostile environment created by the bullying. As a result of these findings and subsequent resolution agreement, the federal agency imposed corrective actions, which included updating district-level policies and procedures to guide school staff, parents and students in addressing complaints of bul-

lying. The goal of the updated policies, as described by school board members and district staff in board meetings in February, was a more standardized approach to investigating and resolving reports of bullying. “It is important for the community to know that we would like to see consistency across the district on this and that we are working towards that,” school board member Melissa Baten Caswell said at that time. Caswell also wrote in an email to Superintendent Kevin Skelly: “We need to make sure our staff understands (that new policies and regulations) are being created (and that) we expect them to use the processes that are contained in these documents.” The staff, parents and students have been waiting ever since for the new policies and procedures to emerge. Their development has taken longer than anyone expected, prompting city officials and others in recent months to express exasperation about the continued absence of promised rules to guide parents and students in the event of a bullying incident. “It would be helpful to have a clear policy,” Councilwoman Liz Kniss told school board members Caswell and Heidi Emberling at a City-School Liaison Committee meeting in September. “My sense of the community is there’s been an uneasiness about how it’s been handled in ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£Ó®

DIG THIS ... Palo Alto’s City Council meeting took a brief turn toward the bizarre this week when a giant penguin, a couple of pirates and a few construction workers in hard hats interrupted the meeting with a song. This wasn’t a Halloween parade, but an unscheduled public-service announcement from the Utilities Department. Led by their swashbuckling spokesperson Debra Katz, the group sang a song called “Call Before You Dig� to the tune of “Pirates of the Caribbean.� The lyrics were a bit of a bummer, but the message was clear: “If you hit a wire then you could expire — so call before you dig! And leaking gas can start a fire — so call before you dig. Yo-ho! Yo-ho! Call before you dig.�

Members of of the Palo Alto Utilities Department, dressed as pirates, penguins and construction workers, gave an impromptu sing-song public-service announcement at a City Council meeting Nov. 4. HOLDIN’ OUT FOR A HERO ... The Midpeninsula Media Center needs a hero — six, actually. The center, which produces videos and media online and on public-access channels in the Midpeninsula, is soliciting nominations for its 8th annual Local Heroes Awards. Six winners will be selected and short videos about their lives will appear on the local cable channels and on the Web. Know of a streetwise Hercules or a white knight on a fiery steed? It’s pretty simple to get them nominated: Just send the center your name and contact information, your hero’s

COMMUNITY BENCHMARK ... The mouth of the San Francisquito Creek at the Palo Alto Baylands will soon have a new spot for Palo Altans to try to spot elusive clapper rails or take a break while recreating on the Bay Trail. Friends of Palo Alto Parks are donating a bench and dedicating it to former city councilman and mayor Alan Henderson. “We are pleased to sponsor this new bench in honor of Alan Henderson and his civic involvement. Friends of the Palo Alto Parks hope that this bench, which affords a wonderful view of the Baylands, will provide a quiet spot for relaxation to the many Baylands’ visitors each year,� said Friends of the Palo Alto Parks President Liz Hogan. Henderson, who served on the Palo Alto City Council from 1971 to 1975 and from 1977 to 1981 and was mayor from 1979 to 1981, now resides at the Sequoias in Portola Valley. SOD BUSTERS ... Sudden Oak Death, a dreaded disease that has killed thousands of oak trees in California, is being closely monitored in Palo Alto thanks to the help of nonprofit group Canopy. In June, volunteers surveyed California bay trees, which are carriers of the disease. Volunteers took part in U.C. Berkeley’s SOD Blitz, which found that sudden oak death exists north of Woodside and east and west of Interstate 280. Eradication attempts in Atherton appear to be effective but require further monitoring. In Los Altos Hills, sudden oak death has spread eastward, however. None is currently in the residential areas from Atherton to Mountain View, according to Canopy. A disease-treatment training workshop takes place on Jan. 9, 2014, at 10 a.m. at Foothills Park in Palo Alto. Contact Sue Welch at N


Juana Run race could cross finish line Leader of school fundraising event to step down after nearly two decades by Sue Dremann

-ÕiÊ Ài“>˜˜


ed “green teams” sorted the trash into recyclables. For several years, the Juana Run was part of the Palo Alto Grand Prix, a series of road races that consists of the Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run and Walk, Marsh Madness, Stanford Habitat for Humanity Home Run, Pacific THERx 5K4Play and the Agile Running of the Bulls. The races, which take place throughout the year, benefit medical, educational, sports and youth wellness programs and local nonprofit groups. Saxena said the race has changed over the years, evolving from a simple run to an event that includes a pancake breakfast, raffle, lunch and prizes. Barron Park Principal Magdalena Fittoria said Juana Run benefits the schools through community building, fitness and income. “This one event brings both (school) populations together. It’s a unifying event for two elementary schools in this area,” she said. Losing Juana Run means losing funding Karen Saxena for some afterschool programs. Income from the Juana Run is given to the PTAs, which provide grants for noontime activities and afterschool programs such as computer clubs and tae kwon do. Enriching campus activities contribute to how students feel, she added. “We are wondering what is going to happen,” Fittoria said. Juana Briones Principal Lisa Hickey credits the run with getting her back into the sport after a 10-year hiatus. “It’s a great little neighborhood run. Last year I did the Juana Run, and I did a half-marathon last month. Now I’m going to run a full marathon. I feel like the Juana Run inspired me,” she said. With her free time, Saxena might do more part-time work, she said. And although her kids are nearly all grown, she continues to coach after-school sports for Palo Alto’s middle schools. Saxena and her husband can’t do all the running they want to do anymore, she said. But if Juana Run survives, she just might be one of the first at the starting line. “I always love race day,” she said. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@

A ‘hidden population’ in Palo Alto schools At least 18 students from 10 homeless families in district schools this year


he details were hazy but the urgency was clear: A family with three Palo Alto schoolchildren was living in their car, with a parent seriously ill. Could anybody help? No solutions were forthcoming when the family’s plight was raised by Philip Dah, program director of the Opportunity Center, at an Oct. 10 meeting of Palo Alto’s Human Relations Commission. Dah said the school district had called him to see whether he knew of housing leads, but he had none. The three children are among 18 Palo Alto students, from 10 different families, known by the school district to be homeless this year, said Student Services Coordinator Brenda Carrillo. The children, she said, range from kindergartners to high school students. Some are living in cars or campers, others in shelters and others with friends or family members on a shortterm basis. Some of the families are newly homeless — thrown into crisis by a serious illness, separation or divorce — while a handful have been homeless for years, Carrillo said. “These are families that face extreme challenges,” she said. A 1987 federal law, the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, enumerates rights of homeless children to continue at the school they attend when they first become homeless. It

by Chris Kenrick also ensures homeless children transportation to and from school free of charge. The Palo Alto school district issues bus or Caltrain passes to students living in homeless shelters outside the district if they choose to continue in local schools. In some cases, families will opt to switch to districts where the shelter is located, Carrillo said. The district also ensures that homeless students have backpacks, school supplies, laptop computers, tutoring if necessary and gifts for the holidays. For homeless children, the challenges are many. “There are the functional things like showering and food, and then the whole other arena of how they’re accepted in school, how they can fit in and the stigma that comes with being homeless,” Carrillo said. “That’s not something most of us would want others to know about, and we’re strategic in working with the families to find out what their comfort level is, and how they’d like us to serve them. “Some of the parents say, ‘Please don’t provide any services to my student on campus, but if there’s a backpack or a computer I’ll come to the district office and pick it up.’ “Other families are much more open about having the supports provided on campus — but this is certainly a hidden population.”

Carrillo said she did not know which member of the school district had called the Opportunity Center in search of housing for the car-dwelling family with three students. “We do work closely with the Opportunity Center, but it’s always a balance because our primary interest is in making sure children have access to the curriculum, are doing well and can participate in activities,” she said. “We’re not social workers or case managers, but if we can make a call to advocate on behalf of a family, we’ll definitely do that.” The number of documented homeless students in Palo Alto fluctuates — last year it was 15 children from eight families — and may not be complete. “There may be other families out there who would meet the legal definition but may not choose to come forward, may feel they’re managing on their own and don’t want folks to know about it or there may be cultural reasons,” Carrillo said. “But I don’t think we have all that many.” “People are often surprised to hear that we actually have homeless families in our community, but I think its important for people to understand that our schools are made up of a lot of diversity,” Carrillo said.

Departing police chief reformed department, but violence persists Ron Davis drew praise from East Palo Alto leaders for community-oriented strategies, fundraising


s East Palo Alto Police Chief Ron Davis leaves, he does so with only modest regrets — except for one. He wishes he had been able to increase the staffing and pay at his small department, but mostly he wishes he had seen a year with zero murders during his eight-year tenure with the city that became infamous for its crime rate in the early ‘90s. “When I first got hired, the benchmark was murder capital,” he said, referring to 1992, a particularly violent year in which the city suffered 42 reported murders and infamously had the highest per-capita murder rate in the U.S. “Now people get nervous when there are two or three shootings

by Eric Van Susteren in a week ... and the fact that peoples’ benchmarks are much lower reflects that their tolerance is much lower — that’s positive, but it needs to be much lower. It should be normal for us to have zero or one murders per year like any other community our size.” Since Davis East Palo Alto signed on to be Police Chief police chief of Ron Davis the 29,000-person town where violence has been a seemingly intractable issue, murders have fallen 63 percent,

he 18-year run of a popular Palo Alto foot race that raised money for local schools could come to an end in February if its founder can’t find someone to fill her racing shoes. Karen Saxena, a longtime Palo Alto parent who started the Juana Run in 1997, is retiring as race coordinator, she confirmed Wednesday. The final race she’ll organize will be on Feb. 22. Saxena’s departure leaves the race’s future in limbo. The volunteers are fewer now, and her youngest daughter is graduating from Gunn High School this coming May. Saxena has grown weary of the hours of phone calls and emails to organize volunteers, she said. There could be hope for future runs, however, if the right person or persons take over. Saxena has received emails from two interested people. One is affiliated with the schools; the other might want to expand Juana Run as a broader venture, she said. Juana Run has offered something for everyone: a competitive 8K race on a USA Track and Field-certified course; races for elementary school students; and a 1-mile family race. “It’s a good way to raise money if you get involved in a volunteer activity and do something you like doing,” she said. Saxena had volunteered at school carnivals and other events, but in the late ‘90s, she sought something more. “I wanted to do something I could own,” she said. She and her husband, podiatrist Amol Saxena, are avid runners and had enjoyed a similar Los Altos family-oriented race called “Willy’s Road Race,” which benefited St. Williams’ School, they said in a 1997 interview with the Weekly. They launched the Juana Run when the Juana Briones Elementary School PTA was looking for a fundraiser. The Juana Run attracts about 1,000 people each year, she said. At first, it benefited the elementary school. Proceeds were later split between Juana Briones and Barron Park elementary schools. More schools, including Terman Middle School and Gunn High School, have benefited in recent years. Student runners who register garner $5 apiece for their schools if they promote the run on campus, she said. In the past four or five years, Juana Run has given a percentage to groups that help at the event. The Gunn girls basketball team took care of the burger booth last year, and environmentally orient-


from 15 in 2005 to seven in 2012, and overall crime has fallen 33 percent, from 1,699 to 1,124 in the same time period, according to a police report to the City Council. Davis will officially leave Nov. 8 to accept a job as director of the Community-Oriented Policing Services Office in the U.S. Department of Justice. Davis, a 20-year veteran of the Oakland Police Department, joined the department with reform in mind, particularly regarding the police’s relationship with the community. He touted a communityoriented policing strategy, which sought to address the root problems at the core of crime and vio(continued on page £x)

or years, “civic engagement” was one of the official priorities of the City Council, whose members often talk about the need for community outreach and just as often lament the lack of people in the council chambers when they’re discussing important issues like high-speed rail and the Comprehensive Plan. Just this week, the council was discussing ways to engage the public in identifying the city’s “core values” and approved an outreach process that involves giant touchscreens, a website called Open City Hall and a video made in conjunction with local students. Whether or not the city’s campaign proves successful, one of the lessons of Measure D is that local residents are far from apathetic when it comes to local government. The voter turnout (of about 38 percent of the city’s registered voters) was predictably mild given that there were no local, state or national races and that Measure D was the only issue up for a vote. The roughly 14,540 ballots that were counted as of Thursday afternoon were far fewer than the roughly 25,000 cast in 2010, when voters struck down a firefighter initiative to freeze staffing levels and changed local elections from odd to even years. The number was also slightly below the roughly 15,000 who voted in 2011 to “undedicate” a portion of Byxbee Park to allow for a potential facility that would convert waste into energy. Even so, the campaign was successful in both qualifying the issue for the ballot this summer and in getting the votes out. Opponents of Measure D had a strong message — “preserve neighborhood zoning” — and this message resonated far beyond the Barron

Measure D was defeated with 56 percent of the votes. Opponents held the majority all over the city, with the exception of downtown Palo Alto and neighborhoods including St. Francis, Triple El, Southgate, Evergreen Park and Charleston Gardens. The largest “no” majority was near the Maybell project. Park and Green Acres neighborhoods, ground zero for Maybell. Residents also formed a new group, Palo Altans to Preserve Neighborhood Zoning, whose members stressed Tuesday night that they will remain engaged in the city’s future zoning issues. Mayor Greg Scharff, who supported Measure D along with the rest of the council, nevertheless was quick to praise the victors on running a successful campaign. Though he said he was “disappointed with the results,” he added that he was pleased to see

democracy in action. “A large group of Palo Altans organized and did an excellent job on the campaigning. They got the message out and democracy prevailed,” Scharff told the Weekly in an interview. “I think that’s a good thing. That’s a positive thing.”

he election maps carry the same message as the list of people who contributed to the plucky, low-budget anti-D campaign: Rezoning is a citywide issue. Nearly every precinct outside of downtown, Palo Alto Hills and the neighborhood near the Taube-Koret Campus for Jewish Life on the southern edge of the city opposed Measure D, though the margins varied greatly. The three precincts near the Maybell site predictably had the widest gaps, with one of them opposing Measure D by a vote count of 483 to 193 and the other one voting 411 to 166 (in both cases, 71 percent against). The precinct by the orchard voted most overwhelmingly against the measure, 595 to 165 (78 percent opposition). Elsewhere, the margin was far closer. Most of the precincts leaning

contributors came from neighborhoods throughout the city. While the opposition was heavily outspent, its supporters included plenty of neighborhood leaders and watchdogs from outside Barron Park, including Fred Balin of College Terrace and Neilson Buchanan from Downtown North. The color maps also suggest that while the City Council was focusing on the technical specifics of the Maybell project — the number of cars it would add to each street around the orchard, the lot sizes of the proposed houses, potential alternative developments that could be built under existing zoning — many of the opponents were thinking in broader terms about issues such as “planned community” zoning and Palo Alto’s increasing traffic congestion and parking shortages. Cheryl Lilienstein, spokesperson for the Vote Against D campaign, said her group, Palo Altans to Preserve Neighborhood Zoning, will remain engaged in the city’s planning process as other rezoning proposals come online. The issue of protecting neighborhoods from increasing density, she said, is not limited to her neighborhood of Barron Park. “In doing this campaign, we have connected with other neighborhood groups who have concerns that overlap with ours, and we intend to support one another,” Lilienstein told the Weekly.

in favor of Measure D were clustered around University South, which includes the senior community of Channing House and the affordable-housing development Webster Wood. The precinct with the two facilities had 323 people voting in favor of the measure (69 percent) and 126 opposing it. Several adjacent neighborhoods tilted slightly in favor of Measure D. The color-coded map provided by the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters shows Measure D opposition extending from nearly border to border. The color connoting precincts with a “no” majority dominates the map. Exceptions include the downtown cluster of precincts, the vast but sparsely populated Palo Alto Hills (where Measure D prevailed 40 to 34) and the precinct that includes the Saint Francis and Triple El neighborhoods near U.S. Highway 101. The latter supported Measure D by only four votes, 249 to 245, according to the registrar’s “semi-final” tally as of Thursday afternoon. In the south Palo Alto precinct that includes the seniorhousing community Moldaw Residences and the Charleston Gardens neighborhood, 181 votes out of the 322 supported the measure (56 percent). Paralleling the map, the Vote Against D campaign’s financial


efore the Maybell election, many people complained about planned-community projects, which trade away zoning exemptions for “public benefits” negotiated between the city and the developer. The process has a checkered history, with the most recent controversies including two disappearing “public” plazas (one next to Saint Michael’s Alley restaurant and the other subsumed by Caffe Riace) and one disappearing supermarket (the “Save JJ&F” campaign succeeded in getting the College Terrace Centre development on El Camino Real approved but didn’t really save the venerable grocer, which departed soon after the approval). The Maybell project was different. Shepherded by the Palo Alto Housing Corporation, a nonprofit with a four-decade history of providing affordable housing, it sought to address one of the city’s greatest needs by building 60 apartments for lowincome seniors. In a city where rents are sky high and where nearly 20 percent of seniors live near the poverty level, affordable housing was widely seen as a legitimate benefit. Winter Dellenbach, a Barron Park resident who is one of the city’s staunchest critics of the planned-community process, fully supported the Maybell development. So did Councilwoman Karen Holman, one of the council’s lead-

ing skeptics of new developments. Even so, the voters rallied behind the cry, “Preserve neighborhood zoning,” and defeated the project. The Election Day results thus beg two questions: If the voters can unify to defeat a plannedcommunity project with benefits so tangible they are almost oxymoronic (affordable housing in Palo Alto!), what can they do with more typical PC projects such as the office developments proposed by Jay Paul Company and Pollock Financial Group near El Camino and Page Mill Road? Also, how will it affect the city’s handling of planned-community applications? Not every council member was in a mood on Election Night to discuss the issue. When asked if he was surprised by the election results, Councilman Larry Klein declined to comment. Councilwoman Liz Kniss called it a “sad day” as she walked out of the “Yes on D” party shortly after the early results were announced. Holman, a former planning commissioner, called the results “instructive.” Scharff said the message that he heard from voters on Election Day is one he’s been hearing for months. Residents are concerned about too much traffic and not enough parking. They don’t want to see ugly architecture and outof-scale density. These positions are easy to understand and sympathize with, he said, and the council is already taking many actions to address them. In just the past few months, the council had eliminated a series of laws granting parking exemptions; unveiled its planned downtown “residential parking program”; begun a conversation about a transportationdemand management program that would get commuters out of their cars; and continued to look into new garages, which Scharff said cannot be built soon enough. The vote only reinforced the sentiments that the council is well aware of, he said. But at least one thing about Measure D changed his thinking regarding planned-community projects — the campaign’s focus on preserving the “neighborhood feeling.” Unlike most PC projects

This resonated with many residents, including Scharff. “I’d be much more hesitant frankly about a PC in a residential neighborhood,” Scharff said. He cited the concerns put forward by the Vote Against D campaign that residents will “have PCs pop up in your residential neighborhood.” “That’s unfortunate. I don’t think there’s a sense on the council that we’d do that. But I think we may need to provide reassurance on that point. ... One of the things that maybe we can do is simply say that we will not do PC in residential neighborhoods. Period.”

November 2014 should be very interesting


alo Alto’s last City Council election was a humdrum affair, with just six candidates (including incumbents Pat Burt and Greg Schmid) fighting for four seats. The 2012 candidate pool was in fact the smallest since 1985. Measure D suggests November 2014 could be far more exciting. In the weeks leading up to this year’s Election Day, there was plenty of grumbling from the antiD camp about the council not listening to residents. At the election party Tuesday, some opponents of the rezoning decision talked about

replacing the current council and also reforming the city’s plannedcommunity process. The group Palo Altans to Preserve Neighborhood Zoning was planning to meet on Thursday to break down election results and consider next steps, Cheryl Lilienstein said. Members hope to get a better understanding of the PC process and also the way in which the city drafts an “impartial analysis” for referendums (the group has contended having the city’s attorney write an “impartial” analysis on an item in which the city is challenged poses an inherent conflict of interest). But the prospect of fielding council candidates also looms large, begging comparisons to the heated 1960s election battles between “the establishment” and “slow-growth residentialist” candidates. The analogy is far from ironclad. Most members of the current council, particularly Karen Holman, Greg Schmid and Pat Burt, already hold strong residentialist credentials and are cautious about new developments. There will be at least one new council member after the 2014 election, when Councilman Larry Klein will complete his second consecutive term. The big question now is how many people will enter the fray to take his seat and to challenge the other four incumbents — Mayor Greg Scharff, Vice Mayor Nancy Shepherd and councilmembers Holman and Gail Price — whose terms will expire and who will have the option of running again. That’s a question that neighborhood leaders will be wrestling with in the coming months. “I’d say from the beginning, because the City Council wasn’t listening to us, there has been a consistent undercurrent of challenging the incumbents,” Lilienstein told the Weekly. “That’s been a very strong message that has been internal to this organizational effort. “If we felt their decisions have been considering our concerns, I don’t think we’d feel there was a challenge necessary. It definitely feels that way now.” N Staff Writer Gennady Sheyner can be emailed at gsheyner@

Dish parking plan irks residents Proposal would shift parking from Stanford Avenue to Coyote Hill Road

main entrance. More than 40 residents from around Stanford attended Monday night’s meeting of the City Council to raise concerns about the parking proposal, which is part of a plan by Palo Alto and Stanford University to expand the trail network near the

The Board of Supervisors last year authorized a grant to fund the trail project. Under the proposal currently on the table, 33 of the 60 parking spaces on Stanford Avenue, which leads up to the main gate of The Dish, would be shifted to Coyote Hill Road, about sixtenths of a mile away from the entrance. This shift has created consternation from some of the regular users of the popular destination, which attracts more than 600,000 visits a year. Stuart Klein, one of the speakers at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, argued that the parking plan would create a new barrier for the tens of thousands of community members who hike or run The Dish on a regular basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The proposal that Stanford has made to move the parking to Coyote Hill Road creates profound safety questions for crossing a five-lane road and creates major

alo Alto school board members appeared underwhelmed this week when presented with a plan to add nearly $2 million of new school staffing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mostly new teachers. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance chief Cathy Mak said she had consulted with stakeholder groups, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic plan and a previously voted-on set of board values in arriving at her recommendation to add nine new teaching positions, a new librarian, four new tech-support jobs and an additional 2.5 full-time-equivalent workers in the district office. But board members at Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting appeared to be searching for a greater sense of vision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing here is the big picture,â&#x20AC;? board member Melissa Baten Caswell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; amount of money that we can spend this year. It would be good to hear what are our biggest leverage points, and is that why these things were chosen? Are these our biggest leverage points? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you divide it up here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of like spreading peanut butter around.â&#x20AC;? Superintendent Kevin Skelly acknowledged â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of peanut butter in this workâ&#x20AC;? but said additions like allowing a high school library to stay open until 5 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;add real value.â&#x20AC;? New teachers will â&#x20AC;&#x153;provide more differentiation for students, and I know that additional reading specialists will lead to more students being able to read,â&#x20AC;? Skelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re giving sites some resources that are going to enable them to do this.â&#x20AC;? Consultations with principals, he said, had helped define the best â&#x20AC;&#x153;leverage pointsâ&#x20AC;? for the added money. The $1.9 million in additions amounts to slightly more than 1 percent of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $170 million operating budget for 2013-14. The proposal would add 6.05 fulltime-equivalent teaching positions at the high school level; 1.55 FTEs at the middle school level and 1.8 FTEs in elementary reading specialists, amounting to 0.15 FTE for each of the 12 elementary schools, Mak said. Additionally, Mak proposed adding $135,000 for elementary campus supervision, one FTE for high school library staffing, four FTEs in technology support and an additional 2.5 FTEs for payroll and attendance in the district office. Several members questioned the level of investment in tech support, noting other areas of apparent need, such as reducing class sizes for elementary P.E.

a policy direction, and I’ve said that as gently as I can.” Assistant City Manager Pam Antil, who participated in the meeting and who has two children at Jordan Middle School, said parents need clear guidelines on reporting bullying, which the district has failed to provide despite a barrage of information on other topics. “We get 25 emails about the dress code and how long shorts can be, but it’s very silent on what to do if my daughter is getting nasty messages from another person on social media.” At the meeting, Caswell, Emberling and district staff member Brenda Carrillo indicated that the policies were still “in development,” which has become a standard refrain. What the school district officials did not explain at the September meeting is that the Office

for Civil Rights had signed off on a final draft of new bullying policies and procedures in early August, according to school district attorney Dora Dome. Instead of moving forward to adopt the new policies, however, the district decided to take the additional step of seeking state-level sign-off from the California Department of Education (CDE) and the California School Boards Association (CSBA), as requested in a letter dated Aug. 20, signed by Skelly and Dome and attaching the proposed policies. In seeking these additional state-level approvals for the new policies, Skelly explained: “We are trying to get as much input as we can and make sure that OCR, CDE and CSBA are comfortable and confident in this effort.” On Friday, the district received word that the state association and education department had reviewed the proposed policies, had no concerns about any of the provisions and would be issuing a joint letter to that effect this

week, according to Skelly and to CSBA’s communications director, Suzanne Meraz, in an email to the Weekly. Still, these multiple endorsements may not be sufficient for the board to move forward to recommend adoption of the draft policies, according to Skelly. “I’m not sure that being OK will be strong enough for the board, but let’s wait until we get the letter,” Skelly wrote in an email to Dome. Skelly told the Weekly the next step in the process will be discussion at the board’s policy review committee, which Caswell and board member Camille Townsend serve on, scheduled to meet next on Nov. 13. “I can’t speak for the board, and until the BPRC (Board Policy Review Committee) is ready, we won’t bring it to the board,” Skelly said. “Nothing is decided yet.” As currently drafted, the policies would create a two-tier system for handling bullying complaints. Cases involving bullying based on “protected characteristic” (disability, race, sexual orientation, etc.) would be investigated and resolved using a district-level process called the Uniform Complaint Procedure (UCP), as required by law and the resolution agreement. Other cases of bullying, not involving “protected” characteristics, would be handled under a different set of rules at the school level, with fewer procedural protections. If adopted, the policy would result in different treatment for different types of bullying victims, which is allowed under current federal and state law but for which there is no clear model. Despite the federal and state OKs for Palo Alto’s policies, Skelly said that the school board may yet hesitate about moving ahead because of the policies’ lack of alignment with what the CSBA has recommended for its member districts. Neither the overall bullying policy, nor the updated Uniform Complaint Procedure (UCP), which the Office for Civil Rights substantially revised, match CSBA’s templates.

News Digest Palo Alto named top ‘digital city’ When Palo Alto’s Chief Information Officer Jonathan Reichental began his tenure at City Hall nearly two years ago, he vowed to create the nation’s “leading digital city.” By the looks of things, it didn’t take him long to get there. This week, the Center for Digital Government named Palo Alto the top digital city in America among those with a population of 75,000 or less. The city joins Boston, Irving, Texas, and Avondale, Ariz. at the highest echelon of the digital frontier, according to the Center, which promotes government transparency and best practices in information technology. “We’re trying a lot of new things at City Hall, from experimenting with social collaboration to publishing important city data in open formats to engaging with communities online,” Reichental said in an announcement of the recognition. “There is still a lot to do, but our new technologies and capabilities are making a big difference in how we work on a daily basis with the community.” Recent digital initiatives included the PaloAlto311 phone app, which offers residents troves of government data and allows them to instantly report potholes and fallen branches from their smartphones and tablets; a broad “open data” website that allows users to browse budget documents and to download and map data on everything from trees to city permits; and numerous improvements to the city’s long-beleaguered website, which recently completed a major redesign. The city has introduced free, high-speed WiFi to Cogswell Plaza and it is looking to bring it to other public locations. It also flaunted its creative technophilic chops on June 1, when more than 5,000 people flocked downtown for the National Day of Hacking— the largest such event in the United States.

Anne Warner Cribbs receives Athena Award It’s one thing to be crowned an Olympic goddess once in your life, but twice? That’s the story of Anne Warner Cribbs, who won gold in the 1960 Olympics and Wednesday was inducted as the 27th recipient of the Athena Award by the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce. Now head of the business consultancy Cribbs & Company and the CEO of Bay Area Sports Organizing Committee, Cribbs was honored at the Garden Court Hotel for “excellence, creativity and initiative in her profession, contributing time and energy to improve the quality of life for others, and actively assisting women in realizing their full leadership potential.” “Who has been a trailblazer more than Anne?” longtime friend and colleague Gary Cavalli asked rhetorically as he introduced Cribbs, citing her parenting of nine children, graduation from Stanford University in her 30s and founding of the women’s American Basketball League. Cribbs’ swimming career started when she was 6 at Burgess Pool in Menlo Park. By the time she was 14 she won gold at the 1959 Pan American Games. A year later, she competed at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, and was a member of the gold medal-winning, 400-meter medley relay team. Cribbs’ professional career has focused on serving sports and the community, from co-founding the American Basketball League (ABL) to leading the San Francisco 2012 Olympic Bid. N — Jocelyn Dong

Caltrain trenching study wins green light Declining to stand idle while change arrives along the Caltrain corridor, Palo Alto officials on Monday agreed to commission a study that would evaluate the cost of digging a trench for trains in the southern half of the city. In a 7-2 vote, with Larry Klein and Karen Holman dissenting, the City Council voted to approve a contract with the engineering firm Hatch Mott MacDonald to evaluate the trenching of Caltrain between the city’s southern tip at San Antonio Road and Matadero Creek, just south of Oregon Expressway. The study would also look at the cost of building underpasses at Churchill Avenue, Meadow Drive and Charleston Road. The $127,550 study was prompted by a number of changes looming on the near- and long-term horizons for the roughly four-mile Caltrain corridor in Palo Alto. In the long run, the corridor is envisioned as a conduit for California’s highly controversial $68 million high-speed rail system, which under the current plan would share two tracks with Caltrain on the Peninsula. In the more near future, Caltrain is looking to convert from diesel to electric trains, a long-awaited change that would enable more trains to travel along the already busy corridor. Vice Mayor Nancy Shepherd said the study would provide the council with valuable information about which options, if any, are feasible for the potential future redesign of the Caltrain corridor. The study is also expected to address a common local concern about the Caltrain corridor — its effect as a barrier between east and west Palo Alto. N — Gennady Sheyner

tion in speed limit and a speed table to slow down cars. Still, for people like Jean Mayer, who has lived on Stanford Avenue since 1974, there were plenty of negative consequences. Mayer said the influx of people using Stanford has created a noise and at times a filthy environment near her home, with car alarms blaring at 6:15 a.m. and Dish visitors urinating and defecating near her fence. Most people, Mayer told the council that visitors donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of the area around the Dish as a residential neighborhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most hikers are oblivious to their surrounding,â&#x20AC;? Mayer said. She was the only speaker who said she would welcome the transfer of Dish parking from her street to the Coyote Hill site, further from residential areas. Ruth Lowy, another speaker at the meeting, sympathized with Mayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dilemma but urged the city to find a middle ground between protecting residents and keeping access to the Dish unrestricted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There should be some way to have a balance so that people are not restricted or terribly impeded from getting to the Dish by having parking very far away,â&#x20AC;? Lowy said. Stanford has already made some revisions to its parking plan. Initially, the proposal called for converting the parking spots on one side of Stanford from parallel to diagonal alignment, which would have required cars to back up over bike lanes as they exit. This plan was scrapped because of safety concerns. The university has already had two community meetings and revised its proposal to incorporate the Coyote Hill site. Jean McCown, Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of communication, said that while thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the proposal currently on the table, there is still room for further adjustments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sounds like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an open question,â&#x20AC;? McCown told the Weekly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to listen to people.â&#x20AC;? Simitian cited the changes that have already been made and urged the residents to remain engaged in the process. He noted that the compromise should be developed by the school and the city â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the official applicants for the trail project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not the county. He said he found it encouraging that the controversy over the trail proposal is limited to just this one segment of the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the process to date has actually provided some change in thinking,â&#x20AC;? Simitian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope people will keep talking to the university and keep talking to the city.â&#x20AC;? N Staff Writer Gennady Sheyner can be emailed at gsheyner@

Police chief ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ÊvÀœ“Ê«>}iÊÇ®

lence in the city rather than fighting only their symptoms, he said. Activities related to this strategy included California’s firstever, local-police-led prisoner reentry program; “call-in” meetings in which police and community members met with those involved in gangs, drugs or violence to propose alternatives; collaboration with nearby law enforcement agencies to target gang activity; and data analysis of the city’s Shotspotter acoustic gunshot-detection system. Of special importance was the idea of building better relationships between the police and community members, a connection that has historically been strained, City Manager Magda Gonzalez said. Gonzalez praised the chief for his efforts to strengthen relationships as well as his work professionalizing and improving his department reputation with the public. Not everyone in the community shares Gonzalez’ opinion of Davis’ success. Community activist Dana McKean said he felt Davis didn’t reach out to the community as much as he was given credit for. “I didn’t see a difference in how police treated people as far as actually seeing them getting out of their cars and talking to people,” he said. “Even at the events (they held) they could have done a lot more reaching out.” That sentiment was echoed by Johnnie Gray, the founder of the East Palo Alto Boxing Club. Gray, who runs the club primarily for the benefit of at-risk youth, said he often invited the chief to send police officers by his gym to meet the kids who trained there, a move he felt was an obvious step in bringing police closer to the community. He said officers never came. “If you’re trying to build relationships and solve crime, they should have come to the program,” he said. “The way these young people are around here they can watch someone get shot, and if the police pull up they’ll say: ‘I ain’t seen nothing.’ “Start being involved; start building a relationship. That’s how you’ll get some of these damned crimes solved. How’re you going to solve a crime without a relationship?” Gray said the police’s lack of interest in his gym reflected what he felt was favoritism for policeaffiliated and -sponsored programs, particularly in receiving funds from Measure C, a parcel tax that aimed to equally support police operations and violenceprevention programs. Gray said he felt Davis used his clout in the city to unfairly steer Measure C funds to police-affiliated violence-prevention programs like its re-entry program, leaving out other local organizations that serve at-risk youth, whom they felt deserved equal attention from the measure.

“What these kids need is afterschool activities; they need jobs. We’re really supposed to have that kind of stuff,” he said. “Every year like clockwork the police department got their money, but when it came down to getting that money to prevent violence it’s always a fight.” (Gray’s gym and the Drew Health Center Inc. received $60,000 in Measure C money aimed at supporting families of high and at-risk youth on Wednesday night.) Stewart Hyland, who serves on the city’s Measure C oversight committee and supports the idea of community-oriented policing, said he saw the chief as charismatic and idealistic about his policing strategy but felt that it was lost on many of the officers who were to carry it out. But some of the officers did get it, he said, and he credited the chief with always being open to at least hearing community members’ concerns at public meetings.

‘I bet you that 75 to 85 percent of the murders, we definitely know who did it. But if you want to bring a murder case to the DA, it’s tough without any witnesses.’ —Ron Davis, police chief, East Palo Alto However, he said a mentality within the department that the only people who are shot in East Palo Alto are the ones who are guilty has persisted, despite the strategy that focused in part on humanizing those involved in violence. All three men decried the lack of solved murders in a city so small, a fact which Davis was very familiar with, particularly in 2013, which he described as probably the second-most violent year in his tenure, with eight murders and nearly 100 assaults with a firearm so far. “I bet you that 75 to 85 percent of the murders, we definitely know who did it,” he said. “But if you want to bring a murder case to the DA, it’s tough without any witnesses.” He said he tried to address what he saw as the three core reasons for the “no-snitch mentality” that is pervasive in communities across the country. People’s fear of retaliation had a simple solution — offering methods of anonymously tipping the police such as text, email or phone message. But the deeper issues — that snitching is considered “the wrong thing to do” and the inherent distrust many community members feel for the police — were what he hoped to address with community-oriented policing. When asked about the success of the chief’s strategy in improv-

ing the community-police relationship, Gonzalez pointed to a 2012 survey commissioned by the former city manager ML Gordon in 2011 that queried 400 randomly selected residents by phone of their perceptions of various city issues, including public safety and police-community relationships. The survey found that 38 percent of respondents felt the relationship between the police and the community was better than it was five years ago, 44 percent stated the relationship was about the same, 3 percent said it was worse and 14 percent said they were unsure. The same survey found that 61 percent of respondents felt that the city had become a safer place to live than five years prior, 27 felt the same and 6 percent felt it was less safe. William Webster, a Measure C oversight commissioner and selfdescribed City Council watchdog, said one the areas the chief truly shined was in fundraising. A report by the police showed that over the years the department has raised $10.7 million to support various police programs, including a $3.5 million grant for parole re-entry, two federal grants to support community-oriented policing that add up to more than $1 million and $300,000 in funds raised from private donors and foundations. Hyland said this last figure is of particular note. Other police chiefs had won federal grants to support activities in cash-strapped East Palo Alto, but Hyland said Davis was unique in that he was able to successfully solicit donations and grants from private sources and foundations. The funds also helped Davis strengthen the department. According to a report by the chief, the department has hired six new officers in the last year, despite the fact that staffing and overtime expenditures at the department each have been reduced by 20 percent since the 2005-06 fiscal year. Ironically, as director of the Community-Oriented Policing Services Office, Davis will be responsible for issuing some of the federal grants that supported police activities in his own department. His goal at the department, he said, will be to expand the type of community-oriented policing that he says has worked in East Palo Alto and in other places and share it with other agencies. “We’ve done some innovative things and I don’t think we’re alone,” he said. “The key is to find those agencies and progressive leaders, to find the people that are dealing with the challenges and find out how they’re doing it so that the field can learn.” Hyland said he hopes the chief’s new position will put East Palo Alto on the map. “I really hope his advocacy doesn’t just go into pdfs that you can download off of a website,” he said.

school, like it’s never too late to go back to school,” Gonzales said. “And then they taught me that it’s never too late to follow up on your dreams. They told me to just push forward — don’t hold back and just push forward.” Gonzales and 76 other East Palo Alto youth, ages 14-24, took part in the program’s ninth season, which is organized by the nonprofit One East Palo Alto. The initiative is also a product of collaboration with

local job-placement nonprofit JobTrain, El Concilio of San Mateo County (a nonprofit coalition of groups that serve under-resourced communities in the county) and College Track, an after-school college-prep program in East Palo Alto. Sponsored Employment Program received a $5,000 grant from the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund this year, which helped cover the costs for two program participants, Executive Director Faye McNair-Knox said. At a graduation ceremony at Costano Elementary School in August, the graduates filed in to


a standing ovation from friends, family and local officials such as Police Chief Ron Davis, City Council Member Lisa YarbroughGauthier and San Mateo County supervisors Rose Jacobs Gibson and Don Horsley. Faye McNair-Knox, executive director of One East Palo Alto, recalled the genesis of the Sponsored Employment Program. “We actually work year-round planning, fundraising, volunteering, recruiting, building the community of support that underlays this important initiative, started in 2005, when we thought East Palo Alto was going to be on its way, again, to that unfortunate distinction that we earned in ‘92 of being the No. 1 murder capital (in the U.S.). “And some of us felt that we were observing too much in the way of youth involvement in the spike in crime and violence at that time.” McNair-Knox and others held community meetings to discuss what she called a “pattern” plaguing the community. “Early in the conversation people said: ‘Where are the young people? Young people need to be a part of this conversation.’ So we regrouped and invited the young people to a first meeting, and then we decided to have a second meeting featuring the young people where they could talk and we could listen. And honestly, I still remember that hard conversation with young people who told us: ‘If you really cared about us ... you would get us a job.’” The Sponsored Employment Program not only gives youth jobs, it also provides workshops that participants must attend in order to get their paycheck. The workshops cover how to write a résumé, apply for jobs, apply to college and become successful. The workshops are led by program staff and peer mentors, a group of current college students from East Palo Alto. Being a peer mentor is a fulltime job in itself: They organize the workshops and other events throughout the summer, fill out paperwork for grants, make sure their mentees have correctly completed their time sheets and check to see if things are going smoothly at the job sites. “Even though the program stopped on our part, there’s a lot of stuff that you invest in when you start and it’s not just something you can drop when it ends,” said Mele Latu, who worked as a peer mentor this summer. Latu is in her last year at Johnson & Wales University in Florida. She’s still in touch with many of her mentees, one of whom was Gonzales. Latu “really helped me a lot actually,” Gonzales said. “She helped me move in and out of my house. She helped me get to places, like to work sometimes. She helped me pick up my daughter sometimes when I couldn’t find rides to go home. ... It was a friendship. She actually was the

‘Tis the season to give Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund supports family-focused organizations


he Palo Alto Weekly formally launched its annual Holiday Fund drive this week, with a goal of reaching $350,000, Publisher Bill Johnson announced. With a mission of helping nonprofits that serve families and children, the fund is supported by matching grants from local charitable organizations, including the Packard, Hewlett, Arrillaga and Peery foundations — meaning every dollar donated by an individual is matched, doubling the impact of the gift. “This is a wonderful opportunity to give to nonprofits that work directly in our own back yard,” Johnson said. “Our readers have been most generous in the past, and we’ve been able to continue to serve these tremendous organizations.”

one that motivated me the most because I’m like, ‘Wow, she came from this background.’ If she could do it, I could do it, too.” Gonzales, who left San Jose when she was 18 years old, moved to East Palo Alto by herself to “change her life around.” “As soon as (employers) look at my background, they won’t call me,” she said, describing her job search before joining the Sponsored Employment Program. “I’ll let them know too; I don’t like to lie. I like to let them know so they can know that I changed and that’s my past and I don’t want to be that person. I never got call backs. I applied, applied, applied, applied, applied, applied, applied, applied; called, called and called. Nothing. With that background, it’s hard.” Her boss, Carolyn Clarke, was also a young mother and understood that Gonzales needed someone to take a chance on her. “When she first came, she was just full of energy and just positive drive to succeed, and I saw that,” Clarke said. Clarke said that she couldn’t afford to let Gonzales go after the six-week program, so she hired her part-time. “I’m pretty impressed with myself,” Gonzales said of her job. “I really think this is my biggest accomplishment. “ Two other peer mentors this summer, Antwon and Sean Chatmon — twin brothers from East Palo Alto who are in their senior year at Whittier College in southern California — said that many

youth simply need to see a different example for how to live their lives. “There’s a big fear in what’s unknown,” Antwon said, referring to families in which the young adult is the first to try to go to college. “So for them it’s tough to balance, especially when they’re younger they’re going to listen to their parents and their older siblings. And if their older siblings made nothing out of their lives, then they’re more likely to hold them down and do the same. So I think just showing them that it’s OK to be smart, it’s OK to go to school, it’s OK to not fit in necessarily with certain groups of people because at the end of the day, you’ll be successful.” At the August graduation ceremony, six peer mentors led the crowd in the “SEP Anthem,” a rhyming slogan sung to a beat that works in English, Spanish, Tongan and Samoan — representative of the different ethnicities present in the program. They went through it in each language, teaching the audience as they went. The last thing Gonzales had to say about the SEP program during her interview? She repeated the slogan. “SEP is the place to be; it’s more than a job — it’s community.” N Information about contributing to the Holiday Fund can be found on page 13.

Lasting Memories

Richard Thomas Burress December 22, 1922 – October 26, 2013 Resident of Stanford, CA Richard (Dick) was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Nebraska, University of Iowa Law School, and received his masters in labor law at NYU. During WW II he became an officer in the Marine Corps and lead men as a Lieutenant during the historic battle of Iwo Jima. Upon graduation from Law School he joined the FBI and met his wife, Jan Eaton, in New York City. He was a dashing, young Federal Agent and she a singer on Sid Caesar’s Show of Shows. They lived in Honolulu, HI, for two years; and Dick always contended that John Wayne portrayed him in the movie Big Jim McClain. Dick later joined the NLRB in Washington, D.C., where both his daughters were born and raised. He worked under two House Minority Leaders, including Gerald Ford. He then moved on to work in the Nixon White House, Chair the National Renegotiation Board, and then back to the White House with President Ford.

He helped put the 25th Amendment in action by steering Ford’s journey to the Vice Presidency and, subsequently, Nelson Rockefeller’s nomination process into the same office. His next career move brought him to Stanford, CA. where he became the Associate Director of the Hoover Institution. He remained affiliated with Hoover until his death. He wrote and produced numerous historic “reading plays” for the Bohemian Club. He was a member of the Palo Alto Fellowship Forum as well. Along his life’s journey he was a true friend, a student of American History, and loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He is preceded in death by his wife Jan. He is survived by his two daughters, Bonny Valente (Louis) and Lee Duboc (Robert); three grand children, Kristen Thome (Craig), Cathy Doxsee (John), and Richard Duboc; and two great-grand daughters, Cora and Madelyn.

Editorial Next steps with Maybell Searching for meaning in decisive defeat of Measure D


n a stunning rejection of the City Council’s judgment and approval of a complex zoning change so a senior housing project could be built in Barron Park, Palo Alto voters decided by a large margin Tuesday it was time to hit the reset button. The outcome stemmed from the convergence of two motivated sets of voters: one group that believes the specific proposal is flawed and unfair to the neighborhood, and another group that at a broader level is unhappy with the City Council’s handling of development proposals, zoning, traffic congestion and parking issues. The Palo Alto Housing Corporation, a nonprofit that has consistently enjoyed strong support from city councils and the community, chose to run an expensive mail campaign that attempted to deflect the concerns of both of these groups and instead focus on the underlying value of their project: providing affordable senior housing. It followed the lead of Mayor Greg Scharff, who inadvisedly and unsuccessfully tried to cast Measure D simply about the community’s support for low-income seniors. But the issue for most Palo Altans was never whether creating affordable housing for seniors was a good or bad idea, but who should pay what price — financial and otherwise — for building that housing. For the measure to be successful and the project approved, voters needed to be persuaded that the project was the best that was possible, better than the alternative and that it respected the neighborhood. The “Yes on D” campaign failed at all three, as did the City Council. It is unprecedented for voters to reject a unanimous action of the City Council in a referendum — by a 12-point margin no less — and the repercussions will surely extend to next fall’s council race. The election outcome’s message was neither subtle nor trivial; Palo Altans are not happy with how their elected officials and city staff are addressing development of all kinds in the community. Unfortunately for the Housing Corporation, this project and ballot measure became a focal point for that discontent. How the City Council responds to Measure D’s defeat is now a critical test of its leadership, and of its commitment to salvaging a senior housing project out of this train wreck. We hope the Housing Corporation does not abandon hope that a viable project is still possible, and will give the city a chance to quickly bring forth a plan for working with the neighborhood to address traffic, parking and the number and size of the market-rate homes. In spite of all the other concerns that have been thrown out during the campaign by opponents, these are the key issues around which a way forward can be found. For its part, the City Council should immediately form an ad hoc committee of Council members to work with its staff, neighbors and the Housing Corporation to explore the possible outlines of a modified project that adds parking and reduces the number of market-rate homes, and require them to conform to R-2 zoning and building limitations, conduct a new traffic study and develop a traffic-mitigation plan that reflects the current and expected future problems. To give the Housing Corporation some confidence that a successful alternative plan is financially possible, the City Council needs to agree conceptually that the city is open to funding any “gap” due to the Housing Corporation reducing the density of the market-rate portion of the development. The effect of this would be to shift some of the responsibility for making this project work to the city as a whole, rather than impose the entire cost on the neighborhood. All of this will be futile, however, if the city planning staff cannot produce alternative plot plans that show the various ways the property could be developed by a for-profit developer under the current zoning. Only with that information will neighbors, the broader community and the City Council be able to clearly see the value of reaching agreement on a project similar to what was proposed by the Housing Corporation. It should have been done months ago, but it is essential if there is hope for a compromise. Finally, the Housing Corporation must be much more transparent about its financial plan. It is not enough to state that the plan approved by the City Council is its bottom line in terms of financial feasibility. Share the projections that led to that conclusion, and the analyses that show what the funding gap might be if the development was scaled back in different ways. For their part, Measure D opponents must now hit their own reset button, put aside the campaign rhetoric and show their interest in working quickly to forge a compromise. The Housing Corporation cannot remain in limbo for long with this property and needs strong indications that the neighborhood is serious about a compromise to avoid what all can agree is the worst outcome: sale to a private, for-profit real-estate developer.

LARP: not a good game Editor, I find the idea of Live Action Role Playing Games, and in particular the battle scenes shown in your article of 10/18, distressing. We have gone from the simulation of killing on a computer screen to physically acting it out. What’s next? Saying that the games teach about the consequences of actions seems pretty hollow when after the game, the “dead” get up and walk away. Under those circumstances, what’s the harm in killing a few people? I don’t believe there is any entertainment value in simulating or acting out the taking of life. People who think there is, and who allow their kids to think so too, should look in the mirror and ask themselves why they feel that way. Robert Plummer Greenwood Avenue, Palo Alto

Growing parking woes Editor, The parking woes now besetting many cities hereabouts range from hoary old ones from Castilleja School neighborhood, Palo Alto, to the iconic one planned by Apple in Cupertino. We have witnessed the spectacle of Castilleja, the pricey, all-girl prep school in a residential area being fined $300,000 for violating enrollment limits. It was established with 66 students in 1907 in the open outskirts of town when students arrived by horse and buggy. With the advent of automobiles and unchecked enrollment inflated to 448, the school largely uses neighborhood streets for parking, robbing residents of parking spaces and causing huge traffic headaches. Apple’s mammoth “Spaceship” headquarters in residential Cupertino will have 14,200 employees, but only 11,000 parking spaces. Guess where extra motorists and guests will be parking? Industry, office, housing and retail must provide “internalized” parking for every employee and visitor. Residential streets belong to residents. Vic Befera High Street, Palo Alto

Education ... or football? Editor, Can anyone doubt that each autumn major universities are operated primarily for the benefit of football: the fans, the team and the money? Today I was told to cancel my evening class on Thursday, Nov. 7 to make room for the ticket revenue and the traffic that will be generated by the StanfordOregon game scheduled for 6 p.m. kickoff that evening. More solid evidence that universities are run for the benefit of their football teams and fans. This

Racial profiling here Editor, I am sorry to say that racial profiling by the Palo Alto Police is alive and (un)well in our town. On Saturday, Oct. 26, I witnessed an incident downtown that made me feel ashamed to be a white Palo Alto resident. Just before a board retreat for a local nonprofit organization, I was letting colleagues in the door when I observed a PAPD police car, lights flashing and siren on, pull over a car driven by one of our board members — a middleaged African-American woman with her son and nephew in the car. Two more police cars arrived and the officers appeared to be interrogating the driver and her passengers. We watched with disbelief and dismay as the interchange continued for more than a half-hour before she was released. PAPD officers have been accused of racial profiling before, and in the past I have noticed numerous examples of black and brown drivers being pulled over by local police. I am ashamed of and angry with these representations of my community. Before we

began the retreat, we talked about what we had just seen. AfricanAmerican colleagues understood that we had witnessed a consequence of what is known as DWB (driving while black), an experience that is painfully familiar to our black friends and neighbors but unknown to those of us who are white. These differing points of view and life experiences of people of color and white people confirm that we are by no means living in a post-racial society. When are we ever going to move beyond this shameful reality? Michael Kass Cowper Street, Palo Alto

On Deadline Palo Alto’s Maybell senior-housing rejection will have lasting reverberations by Jay Thorwaldson he trouncing by voters this week of Measure D, the Maybell Avenue seniorhousing proposal, will almost certainly reverberate throughout Palo Alto’s political spectrum, probably for years. Some observers are already comparing the defeat of the 60 units of low-income senior housing and 12 market-rate homes that would help fund it to the 1963 “Oregon Expressway” citywide vote. That is an unlikely sounding link on the surface, especially since voters narrowly approved the expressway to replace the traffic-clogged two-lane Oregon Avenue. But the two elections have much in common. The main commonality is that they served to coalesce and unify neighborhoodlevel pockets of concern and resistance to what to many seemed to be out-of-control growth spurred and dominated by developers. The fact that the Maybell project was promoted by the nonprofit Palo Alto Housing Corporation seemed to get lost in the angry pre-election exchanges. Or rather it was deemed irrelevant to the bigger issue of out-of-scale developments in other areas of town. Among the hottest of those other neighborhoods are the residential areas flanking the downtown Palo Alto and California Avenue commercial areas — where overflow parking by employees of businesses has spilled further and further into the neighborhoods, saturating curbside parking.


There are other areas where developments have generated local concern and opposition. But none of those seemed to catch fire as a citywide issue the way the Maybell plan did. And none developed the intensity of feeling that turned into name-calling and questioning of motives. The larger, longer-lasting outcome of the Oregon Expressway vote was that a crop of community activist leaders emerged to take on the “establishment-dominated” City Council, then at 13 members in a sizereduction program from 15 on the way to the present nine members. By 1965, boosted by an initiative to dedicate all city parks and parklands, the slow-growth “residentialist” faction of the council had grown to six members. Last July I posted a blog on the Palo Alto Weekly’s raising the question of whether the neighborhoodlevel concerns might coalesce into a citywide revolt against decades of city policies and decisions that have exacerbated traffic and parking problems. (See http://tinyurl. com/mko3ybj.) The Maybell vote bolsters that probability. Longtime community critic/watchdog Bob Moss teamed up with former planning commissioner Joe Hirsch and some relative newcomers to citywide politics to conduct a high-energy successful No on D campaign. The size of the defeat caught a number of council veterans and observers completely by surprise. Was it a vote against low-income housing for seniors, or low-income housing in general? Few are interpreting it that way, so far. But for some voters it may well have been. The goodness of the cause simply did not have the sway over the concerns about overdevelopment and loss of faith in city

planning and approval processes to regulate development appropriately. The overwhelming rejection of D was more the result of a high-energy campaign that framed the issue as a citywide stand against excessive development, traffic and parking impacts of increased intensity. Years of approval of “planned community” (PC) projects that exceeded zoning limits and then forgetting to enforce so-called “public benefits” promised by the project developers has undermined confidence in the entire planning process. A number of persons are calling for a moratorium on new PC zones until a full review and revision of policies and guidelines for such zoning are developed to replace the current “negotiation” model for the zone. Reestablishing confidence in zoning will be a major challenge for the city’s new planning director, Hillary E. Gitelman, former director of planning, building and environmental services for Napa County, who took office this month. But the questions really are: Can confidence be rebuilt? Or will the anti-growth concerns re-energized by Measure D dominate the political and community field? Part of the answer will be in the collective lap of the City Council members, who unanimously supported the Maybell project, and who clouded the approval with an earlier loan to the Housing Corporation to enable it to buy the site for the project. The fact that this council is made up of nine mostly independent thinkers could make a cohesive city response more difficult to arrive at. There are strengths in independent thinking, especially as opposed to a voting-bloc split council as in past years. But Ben Franklin’s adage about not watching sausage or policies (he said laws) being made may come into play sooner than later

at City Hall. Can the city come up with a cohesive response at all, one might ask? Measure D opponents successfully framed the issue in a simple yet compelling matrix of overdevelopment out of scale with the neighborhood, and linked it to other developments around the city, both past and proposed. What easily understood answer to that perception can city leaders formulate? Clearly, “we need more affordable housing” didn’t fill the bill this time around. And the undermined perception of the city’s zoning policies and approval procedures makes it hard to rally support. The irony, of course, is that a vast majority of residents, as shown by polls over many years, absolutely love Palo Alto, its schools, its climate, its quality of life. It is rated one of the best places to live in America, and city services consistently get high marks. Its well-to-do liberality shows up in strong volunteerism and financial support for nonprofit social-service agencies across the board. Its support for open space in the foothills and baylands is a huge factor in that — even though saving the hills and baylands has exacerbated a jobs-housing imbalance that has made real estate and housing costs soar over the past four decades. Bridging the perceptual gap between loving Palo Alto and fearing for its future may well be an impossible dream, a bridge too far for community leaders who still seem in some denial about the depth of concern out there in the neighborhoods.

Parking problems Editor, I have never met a downtown employee who does not have difficulty with parking. Employees have to find a different parking zone every two hours and hope that they can re-park within the time allotted for their break. Often they get back to their car with more than one ticket. Most employees

(are paid) $9-$10/hour! Why not give them a significant discount for a parking pass and dedicate the High Street parking garage? As the High Street parking garage is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;farthest away,â&#x20AC;? I find that is pretty empty. Employees may be able to write parking passes off their taxes (verify with the IRS). This way, people who are shopping/using services downtown will have the parking on streets and/or parking garages downtown. San Francisco has an app for real-time information where parking is available. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that we can as well. Thea Sewell Forest Avenue, Palo Alto

SFMOMA brings exhibitions to Stanford and the streets of Los Altos by Rebecca Wallace

Jessica Stockholder’s 2013 “Study for Cross Hatch” is her artistic take on the intersection of Fourth and State streets in Los Altos.

The work combines

the past, present and future, reaching back to incorporate the documents from Apple’s formation and looking ahead with video interviews with kids whose parents work in high-tech. The work can be seen at 169 State St. Chicago artist Jessica Stockholder took the call to bring art to the streets of Los Altos seriously. In “Cross Hatch,” she gives her artist’s interpretation of a specific intersection: the place where Fourth and State streets meet. She overlaid a Google Earth image with a geometric drawing that looks like a crazy quilt of farm fields, if farmers typically grew crops of orange, purple and black. Then she painted her drawing directly onto the pavement at said intersection. Passers-by can stand and look, or perch on bleachers set up for the installation. “She’s transformed the intersection with color and form,” said Jenny Gheith, assistant curator of painting and sculpture at SFMOMA. “People walk through it. They become part of that composition.” Stockholder has transformed intersections before. In 2011, her “Color Jam” did the same for a crossroads in downtown Chicago. She said in an artist’s statement, “The corner is canvas, stage, pedestal and frame against which the public can view a parade of shifting color relationships.” Other media in “Project Los Altos” include photography, painting and inflatable sculpture. All of the curatorial departments at SFMOMA took part in choosing the artists, Gheith said. The artists spent as much time in Los Altos as was practical, getting to know the area.

Salvador Dalí’s 1932/1975 sculpture “Surrealist object that functions symbolically — Gala’s Shoe” is part of a new exhibition at the Cantor Arts Center. The person who came from the farthest away is spending the most time here. Katerina Seda, a Czech artist, is creating a collaborative work called “Everything Is Perfect”: a sort of local “Guiness Book of World Records” to spotlight local accomplishments — but the everyday ones. As the artist puts it on her website, “Do you think you have the longest beard in Los Altos or Los Altos Hills? Send in an application!” Seda has spent time walking downtown and will be around again for three weeks getting to know people in the community, Gheith said. Another artist hopes to meet up with (continued on next page)

Los Altans he knew decades ago. Charles Garoian’s project looks back at the performance art he did with students while teaching art at Los Altos High School from 1969 to 1986. Photos on display at 359 State St. show some of the projects, including “Watermelon Sculpture” (1972), in which students arranged melons and then carefully cut them smaller and smaller to see the shapes that emerged. “Some of his students went on to be artists or art historians,” Gheith said. As viewers wander through and observe, seeing their familiar downtown in a new way, the more traditional “Flesh and

Metal” exhibition will be at the Cantor through March 16. Artists represented include Salvador Dalí, Margaret Bourke-White, Marcel Duchamp, Piet Mondrian and Man Ray. The man-and-machine theme flourished in art in the early years of the 20th century as artists looked at the ways that industrialization helped and harmed society. Was the machine world sleekly efficient, to be praised for helping poor laborers advance, or did it sap the warmth of human society? How did mechanization affect creativity? These questions and others are explored. As part of the collaboration between the Cantor and SFMOMA, Stanford students helped design

the exhibition in a class taught by Stanford’s Hilarie Faberman and Nancy J. Troy, two of the show’s curators. They will talk about the experience in a panel discussion on Nov. 13 at 4:30 p.m. in the museum auditorium. Several other free events are also planned. At 5:30 p.m. Nov. 14, University of Chicago art history professor Wu Hung will speak at Stanford’s Annenberg Auditorium on ritual, social member and political discourses and how they relate to visual forms. Stanford arts and humanities professor Alexander Nemerov will speak at 5:30 Nov. 21 in the Cantor auditorium on the links between John F. Kennedy and the Thomas Eakin painting “Swimming.” Later talks and a poetry reading are also planned. N Info: “Project Los Altos” is in indoor and outdoor locations around downtown Los Altos from Nov. 9 through March 2. For more, go to and click on “Exhibitions + Events.” “Flesh and Metal” is at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University from Nov. 13 through March 16. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursdays until 8. Go to or call 650-723-4177.

“The Vexations of the Thinker,” a 1915 oil painting on canvas by Giorgio de Chirico, is in the Stanford exhibition “Flesh and Metal: Body and Machine in Early-20th-Century Art.”

Etiquette explosion Social niceties are lost when the affluents clash in ‘God of Carnage’ by Karla Kane


he Tony Award-winning play “God of Carnage” (by Yasmina Reza, translated from the French by Christopher Hampton), Palo Alto Players’ latest offering, bills itself as a comedy of manners “without the manners.” It’s an apt description for this humorous poke at the artifice of upper-middle-class social graces and modern family life. Corporate lawyer/workaholic Alan Raleigh (Scott Solomon) and his seemingly mild-mannered second wife, “wealth manager” Annette (Melissa O’Keefe), are the parents of 11-year-old Benjamin, who broke two of peer Henry Novak’s teeth by bashing him with a stick during an altercation. Henry’s parents, cultured writer Veronica and blustery wholesale businessman Michael (Betty Kruse Craig and Todd Wright), invite the Raleighs to their home to discuss the incident and propose how to deal with their sons. At first, the visit is awkward but reasonably genial, with the couples engaging in small talk and highbrow refreshments, the very model of mature civility in the face of childhood savagery. However, the conversation quickly becomes

/ / ,Ê, 6 7 Info: “God of Carnage” is at the Lucie Stern Theatre at 1305 Middlefield Road in Palo Alto through Nov. 17, Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $23-$45. Go to or call 650-329-0891.

strained, then heated, and the adults increasingly unhinged and histrionic, as all pretenses of politeness are quickly stripped away. The irritating — yet relatable — characters are well written and well portrayed across the board, each with distinct quirks and recognizable personality types. Alan is unapologetic about his preference for his job (and beloved mobile phone) to the demands of fatherhood, marriage and social niceties. Wife Annette, trying hard to keep up appearances, is initially contrite and embarrassed by her son’s act of violence but can maintain her conciliatory facade for only so long. Meanwhile, Veronica, the strongest personality on stage, carefully cultivates her sanctimonious, artistic and high-minded image but

loses her cool when challenged. She’s the parent most upset by the incident between the children, seeing her injured son as a victim of brutality, and is not pleased when it’s suggested he may bear some responsibility for the situation as well. Michael, perhaps the oddest of the four, at first appears jovial and easygoing but quickly reveals a surprising dark side, complete with neuroses, depression and a cruel streak. As the play goes on, the foursome’s alliances shift, often pitting Raleighs against Novaks but morphing into a battle of the sexes as strains in both marriages come to light. The wordy, but sharp and clever, script provides plenty of laughs at everyone’s expense. It also forces viewers to consider how they’d react if their own

children were involved in such a conflict. Can anyone really hope to remain calm and civil for long when their loved ones and ways of living are under (be it physical or social) attack? This production places the action in Palo Alto, a very fitting choice. Audiences will delight in hearing references to Rinconada and Mitchell parks, Hoover Tower and other local landmarks, and Palo Alto’s reputation for a population of educated and affluent overachievers makes it the perfect setting from which these characters could arise. With only four actors and the entire play taking place in one room/ set of costumes, “God of Carnage” would seem a simple show to helm and outfit, but kudos are due to director Jeanie K. Smith (a Weekly theater critic) for keeping the momentum going with creative blocking; set designer Kuo-Hao Lo for creating a believable representation of a well-to-do, tasteful modern couple’s living room; and costume designer Shannon Maxham.

I especially enjoyed Maxham’s choices for Annette and Veronica. Annette’s neatly tailored, figure-hugging business look contrasts perfectly with Veronica’s Bohemian-yet-expensive upscale Earth-mother style. But each sport similar red and purple hues, even down to their similar hair colors. The show, with its acceleration from simmering, subtle animosity to full-blown screwball hysterics (including gross-out humor), clocks in at under 90 minutes with no intermission. Though brief, the play, like the visiting Raleighs, still outlasts its welcome a bit by the end, as the plot doesn’t really lead anywhere conclusive and the characters are well established by then. Nonetheless, “God of Carnage” is an overall success and should give Palo Alto audiences a pleasurable dose of laughter and schadenfreude as they peek into the dysfunctional lives of families who could easily be their friends, neighbors or even — God forbid — themselves.

What is that

Ousting skunks and racoons is a challenge in Palo Alto yards by Kimberlee D’Ardenne ecently, Kris Newby and her family unknowingly hosted uninvited visitors in their Palo Alto home: a family of skunks. Wildlife such as skunks can be a nuisance and cause property damage, according to Russell Parman, district manager at Santa Clara County Vector Control. The district’s first priority is to teach residents how to make their properties unappealing to wildlife, he said, which encourages animals to live elsewhere. Newby first noticed one skunk a year ago, when she saw it walking down her driveway and through her yard at night. “This year, (the skunk) dug a hole under our outbuilding,” Newby said. Soon after, there was more than just the one skunk. “You can smell them in the (outbuilding),” Newby added. “The smell was unbearable, especially when the babies were born.” Newby said she learned that skunks emit little “poofs” of gas continuously, as a way of announcing their presence to others. “Then there is the angry spray,” she said. She and her husband, as well as the family dog, experienced a skunk’s angry spray firsthand. The dog would chase the skunks at night. Once, the dog caught a baby skunk and after playing with it, killed it. “Then (the dog) got sprayed,” Newby said. “My husband was trying to take the skunk away, and he got sprayed.”


Being sprayed by a skunk did not deter the dog, she said. “Just a couple of weeks later, he was sprayed again.” To combat the smell on her dog, Newby said she tried storebought remedies, but washing the dog with a solution of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dish-washing soap worked the best. Even so, it was “at least a month before he was bearable,” she said. Newby’s dog and husband were not the only ones affected by the skunk smell. “We had to remove all my son’s clothes from the (outbuilding),” she said. “(My son) went to work the first day and people noticed the smell.” For help, Newby contacted Santa Clara County’s Vector Control, which provides free assistance in dealing with wildlife to county residents. “There are techniques you can use to discourage animals from being on your property in the first place,” Parman said, “and to ... make it miserable for (animals) to approach humans.” Most importantly, he said, “limit the food, water and shelter that your property makes available to animals.” But when animals either take up residence or become a health threat, vector control will trap them, Parman added. Josh, Cooper and Paul Newby wash their dog with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, after his second “close encounter of the skunk kind.” ÀˆÃÊ iÜLÞ

Smell “Relocation of animals is not legal; California Fish and Game does not allow it,” Parman said. Trapped animals must be put down by law. To combat Newby’s skunk problem, staff from vector control showed her how to make the nest uninhabitable and the yard uninviting. Plugging the hole where the nest was located was not an option, Newby said, because then the skunks would die and they would deal with another terrible odor. Skunks are sensitive to smells, so vector control stuffed the skunk’s nest with pepper-sprayed newspaper, Newby said. Vector control also identified the route that the skunk was using across the Newby property. Though the pepper-sprayed newspaper from vector control lasted only a day — the mother skunk shredded it to get to her babies — Newby said she did not give up. “We kept doing the pepper-spray newspaper thing for three weeks,” she said. “Then the skunk just got impatient and left.” To keep the skunk from returning to her yard, Newby said they made the entrance to the nest impassible with a strategically placed flowerpot. They also plugged other holes in their yard. Because skunks typically use multiple dens along a circuit, Newby said the problem might have just been pushed down the road. Skunks are not the only wildlife that might visit local yards. In Santa Clara County, “the big four are raccoons, possums, skunks and coyotes,” Parman said. While skunks are destructive — with their spray and hole digging — he said raccoons also cause large amounts of damage. “Raccoons can literally roll up lawns” to get at bugs living underneath, he said. “Depending on one’s philosophy about pesticides,

Garden Tips

An important skill: learning to i.d. plants by Jack McKinnon


his month the garden tips will be about how to learn plant identification. I think it is the single most important skill any gardener can have. With a working knowledge of a hundred plants the possibilities are enormous for having a unique and exciting garden. Design skills, how to care for your plants and personal stories make for a lifetime of wonderful interactions with other gardeners and friends. Here are the tips: 1. Get a good plant encyclopedia. Each one has strengths and weaknesses. What is important is a good description of each plant, its sun and shade tolerance and a good photograph or an accurate drawing. 2. Divide and conquer your learning. Know first the differences between trees, shrubs, ground covers, annuals and perennials. With this information you narrow down your identification search significantly. 3. Try to learn at least two new plants a week, ideally five. This gives you a goal and will increase your plant

knowledge by hundreds of plants a year. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about learning all of them, there are tens of thousands. 4. When you find a plant new to you, take its picture. Take at least three photos of each plant â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of the whole plant, one of a leaf close up and one of the fruit. This will help you remember the plant better when you file it. 5. Start your own plant-identification file. In this file be sure to have the Latin name of the plant (Genus and species), a common name or two, some identifying characteristics, sun and water requirements and your photos. 6. Exercise what you have learned. Take someone for a garden walk and see how many plants you can identify. If there are some you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know then these can be added to your next list. I advise doing these walks in an arboretum or garden where the plants have accurate name tags. 7. Start with the plants at hand. Learn the names of plants in your yard or on your block first. If you have a community garden you can learn what is being grown in all of the plots. If you are there when one of the gardeners is there they are usually happy to identify all of their plants and their neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as well.

8. When you learn a new plant, learn something memorable or unique about it. This kind of focus will help you remember each plant better. I have forgotten more plants than most people ever learn but the ones I remember have memorable characteristics. 9. With colder weather here and more time indoors it is really nice to have a library of gardening books. I usually get mine used and have more than I will ever finish reading. Of course the best books are new with hard covers and a good jacket. These can be passed on from generation to generation. 10. Lastly, there is no better way to learn and know plants than to grow them oneself. Buy healthy plants at your local nursery, plant them according to directions in your encyclopedia or other books on that genus and care for it on into maturity.

Gunn’s Robinson runs the Titans to a league title

NorCal finish puts Paly girls in the state finals

by Ari Kaye unn senior runner Sarah Robinson capped off her league cross-country career with her best performance ever on the rolling 2.95-mile Crystal Springs layout in Belmont on Tuesday. Robinson finished first in the El Camino Division of the girls’ SCVAL Cross County Championships with a time of 17:04, helping her varsity team win the overall league crown. Including Robinson, three Gunn girls placed in the top 10 and the team scored 41 points to win by a comfortable 16-point margin over second-place Mountain View. Palo Alto finished third with 72 points. The Gunn and Paly boys tied for second place with 89 points apiece, with the Titans earning a tiebreaker to get that spot. First-place Los Altos placed an astonishing six runners in the top 10 and won easily with 26 points. Paly junior runner Lucas Matison led the way in the boys’ race, taking first with a 15:30 time. It was Robinson, however, who shined brightest on the warm afternoon as she remained unbeaten in seven races this season.

PREP NOTES . . . Palo Alto girls’ tennis coach Andy Harader has mentioned more than once that his No. 1 singles player, senior Aashli Budhiraja, was the best in the Central Coast Section. While that has yet to be proven, Budhiraja can be called the top player in the SCVAL De Anza Division following her singles championship on Wednesday at the division’s individual tournament. Budhiraja defeated Juliette Martin of Los Altos in the title match, 6-3, 6-0, after knocking off Martin’s teammate, Carina Burdeck in the semifinals, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2. The singles title is Budhiraja’s second straight. . . . In water polo, the Menlo School boys and Menlo-Atherton girls wrapped up undefeated league seasons with solid wins on Wednesday in the PAL Bay Division. The M-A girls finished off an 10-0 devision season with a 14-10 triumph over host Burlingame. The Bears (16-8 overall) got six goals from senior Jessica Heilman with Sofia Caryotakis adding three. Francesca Gilles came up with 10 saves for M-A, which has lost starting goalie Sierra Sheeper for the remainder of the season. She suffered a broken ankle in a Powder Puff football game a few weeks ago. The Menlo boys, meanwhile, completed a 10-0 league season with a 20-6 water polo win over host Sequoia. The Knights (21-3 overall) wrapped up sole possession of first place while securing its 20th title in 21 years. This year’s Menlo team is hoping to become the fourth in school history to finish the season with three or fewer losses. Nick Bisconti led the Knights with six goals while Chris Xi added four as eight Menlo players scored.

by Ari Kaye ne of the marquee Central Coast Section high school football games of the year will take place Friday afternoon in Atherton, as Sacred Heart Prep (3-0, 8-0) welcomes Terra Nova (4-0, 8-0), in a matchup of the only remaining unbeaten PAL Bay Division teams. “This is our biggest game this year,” Sacred Heart senior running back Andrew Segre said of the showdown. “We need to get ready for it.” Part of the reason that Friday’s game (kickoff is 2:45 p.m.) means so much for Sacred Heart is because of the result of last year’s matchup. The Gators had a phenomenal 2012 season, racking up a 12-1 record on their way to a CCS Division IV championship. The only blemish for that dominant squad came in an early season 20-13 road loss to Terra Nova, which ended up finishing with a record of just 6-5 after losing in the first round of the CCS Open Division. Despite last year’s loss, Sacred Heart Prep head coach Pete Lavorato emphasized that his Gators would only be focusing on the game ahead of his team. “There’s no revenge on our mind,” Lavorato said. “Terra Nova’s a good football team. They played hard last year and beat us fair and square. It’s a new year, so we’ll see what happens.” Perhaps the biggest difference for the Gators this season is the person now under

he day didn’t start out well for Palo Alto junior Michelle Xie, but it ended much better as the Vikings continued their historic golf season at the 2013 NCGA/CIF Girls NorCal Championships on Monday. Xie bogeyed the first, second and third holes before stopping the damage with a par-4 on the fourth hole. Then, things turned around big time as Xie aced the 144-yard par-3 fifth. She went on to birdie back-to-back par-5s at No. 8 and 9 to shoot 1-under on the front side. Xie had two birdies on the back nine, finishing with an even-par 73 at the Spring Creek Golf and Country Club in Ripon to earn medalist honors and lead the Vikings to a second-place finish with 429 strokes. “Michelle’s hole-in-one was big for her after starting out with three bogeys,” said Paly coach Doyle Knight. “She even said it changed her attitude quickly.” Palo Alto, which captured the Central Coast Section team title last week, was one of three teams Monday earning berths into the CIF State Championships on Nov. 20 at ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊx£®


Any Stanford success starts with Ogwumike How far the Cardinal advances in NCAA tournament will depend upon the improvement of her teammates by Rick Eymer hiney Ogwumike faces her final season at Stanford with as much excitement and passion as she brought when she first arrived. There’s no question Ogwumike is one of the top women’s basketball players in the nation, if not the best one. She averaged a double-double last year, was named a first team All-American, named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and conference player of the year. None of that matters to Ogwumike. What matters is helping the Cardinal win, as in making a championship run. “I want to be a better leader for my team,” Ogwumike said. “I love to compete and whatever that brings is what I’ll do, whether it’s becoming a better passer or perimeter player. I’m down for any challenge.” Stanford faces quite a challenge in its opening weekend. The thirdranked Cardinal (33-3 last year) travels to Boston College for a game Saturday before moving on to meet defending national champion and top-ranked Connecticut on Monday. “We’re just jumping into the deep end of the pool,” said Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer, who is six wins away from 900 for her career. “Let’s find what we need to work on right off the bat.” The Cardinal returns four starters from the team that was upset by Georgia in the third round of last year’s NCAA tournament. In addition to Ogwumike, seniors Sara James and Mikaela Ruef, and junior Amber Orrange also return. James has missed practice due to a calf injury but is “doing fine,” according to VanDerveer. Redshirt sophomore Alex Green has replaced her in the starting lineup for the time being. Juniors Bonnie Samuelson and Taylor Greenfield, each of whom have been starters in the past, also have been banged up, limiting their playing time. The 6-foot-3 Samuelson, who is joined by her little sister, 6-0 Karlie, this year, is back practicing. Greenfield has

a stress reaction and likely will miss a few more weeks. Junior forward Erica Payne also has missed action following knee surgery, but is expected to join a rotation with Ogwumike and Ruef. “She’s working hard and learning from both Chiney and Mikaela,” VanDerveer said. “They are showing her the way.” Freshman 6-3 foward Kailee Johnson, a McDonald’s AllAmerican and Oregon’s 6A Player of the Year, has been thrown into the starting lineup because of the various aches and pains. She did not have a backup for most of training camp. Sophomores Tess Picknell and Jasmine Camp are also in the mix, giving Stanford plenty of depth. In addition to Samuelson, a WBCA All-American, and Johnson, Erica McCall, 5-7 Lili Thompson and 5-7 Briana Roberson came in as one of the top freshman classes in the nation. McCall is a veteran of the United States national youth teams, Thompson received All-American honorable mention and Roberson is a two-time CIF Southern Section selection. “I tell them to be aggressive and don’t back down,” Ogwumike said of advice she gives the freshmen. “They need to leave it all on the court. We have a lot of upside with five freshmen who are eager to learn and play. We’ll be a completely different team in a month, and the month after that. It will be exciting to see how we evolve.” Ogwumike made strides again during the offseason. Her constant attention to detail has put her in successful situations more often. She’ll set the tone for the season. Stanford was picked to win the Pac-12 title despite sharing the regular-season crown with California last year. The Golden Bears also beat Georgia in the Elite Eight to advance to their first Final Four in school history. Last year ended Stanford’s run of five straight visits to the Final Four. A return is a realistic goal this season. N

in 17:49. “I’m pretty happy about the time,” a smiling Robinson said afterward. “I brought myself out at a decent pace, not too fast. I started to push towards the end of the race, and that was pretty much the strategy today.” Even Robinson’s coach, Stanford grad and Olympian PattiSue Plumer, could not help but marvel at Robinson’s impressive feat. “It’s remarkable; it’s hard to understand how good that (time) is,” Plumer said. “I’m just lucky to get to coach her.” Plumer was also impressed how



Her time was a personal best on the course and established an El Camino Division meet record, breaking the 17:31 by former Gunn standout Tori Tyler in 2004. Robinson’s time also is the ninth-fastest ever on the course and makes her the No. 8 all-time girls’ performer. She finished the race with no other runner in sight, as the nextfastest time came from Lauren Jacob of Los Altos, who finished

Getting to the NCAA Tournament is the immediate goal, something that has eluded this talented class by Rick Eymer or seniors such as Dwight Powell, Josh Huestis and Aaron Bright, there’s a feeling of unfinished business. They came to Stanford with dreams of championship trophies and NCAA tournament bids. While it hasn’t quite worked out they way they envisioned, the Cardinal men’s basketball team has seen its share of good days. There’s the NIT championship two years ago and an overall record of 60-42 through the seniors’ first three seasons. When Stanford opens its season Friday night, hosting Bucknell in a nonconference game at 7 p.m., Cardinal players will be playing for something that has evaded them until now. “The sole focus is to be successful and go deep into the NCAA tournament,” Powell said. “We feel we can accomplish more than we have.” Powell has accomplished quite a bit at Stanford. He had a huge impact on the program last year, earning the Pac-12’s Most Improved Player Award and first team All-Pac-12 honors. He averaged a team-leading 14.9 points and was second with 8.4 rebounds. In addition, he played with the Canadian National Team over the summer, comprised largely of American collegiate players. Powell was a starter for the team that won the Four Nations Cup, winning all nine of its games. “I was able to work on things and see immediate results,” Powell said of the experience. “That helped me work on specific things and being able to test them.” It was also an experience that carried over to Stanford, where he will be expected to be a vocal leader. He and Huestis were named Cardinal team captains. “We spent a lot of the offseason on the little things,” Powell said. “Like team dynamics, communication and a focused set of goals.” Powell and Huestis worked well together last year. Huestis was named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive team. He blocked 71 shots

last year and scored 10.5 points a game to go with his 9.0 rebounds per game. “The NCAA tournament is the goal we all came here with,” Huestis said. “We are not going to be satisfied unless we can make a deep run into the tournament.” Huestis also spent his summer in extra-curricular activities. Along with junior guard Chasson Randle, Huestis was invited to try out for the U.S. Junior National Team. Although neither made the team, Huestis said it was a valuable experience. Huestis spent the majority of the summer at Stanford, working out with his teammates. He likes the commitment and desire. “We can see the potential of this team and we’re tapping into that,” he said. “It’s definitely very positive. This could be a special season.” The season could very well be defined by how quickly Bright and Randle can find their rhythm. Randle scored 37 points, on 13 of 16 from the field, in Stanford’s exhibition win over Seattle Pacific last weekend. Center John Gage and guard Robbie Lemons complete a senior class that gives Stanford its most experienced group in some years. Perhaps the biggest addition this season is the return of redshirt junior Anthony Brown, who missed last season with an injury. “He’s huge for us,” Dawkins said. “He can score, he defends and he gives us depth.” Redshirt junior 6-foot-11 center Stefan Nastic, who started against Seattle Pacific, also will be important for Stanford. The Cardinal will be without sophomore guard Christian Sanders for the season following hip surgery. Sophomore forward Rosco Allen remains on the injured list with a stress fracture. Sophomore center Grant Verhoeven returns as a backup at the post. Guard Marcus Allen played 14 minutes in the exhibition, most by a freshman. Along with twin brother Malcolm, they are part of a strong freshmen class that Dawkins hopes can fit right in. N

her individual win was certainly made sweeter by the success of her fellow teammates. “It’s just really fun,” Robinson said of the collective victory. “Everyone can do well individually knowing they are helping the team.” Freshman Claire Hu finished fifth overall for Gunn with a time of 19:01, and sophomore Gillian Meeks finished eighth with a 19:39 mark. Sophomore Bryn Carlson was the lone Paly girl in the top 10, finishing with a solid 18:54 time. Her teammate, junior Katie Foug,

finished in 11th place, posting a 20:08 time. In the boys’ race, Gunn was led by Thomas Rasmussen, who finished 11th with a 16:39 time. Antonio Puglisi and Noah Krigel both finished in the top 20, as well, finishing 17th and 18th with times of 17:14 and 17:16, respectively. For the Paly boys, Matison’s first-place effort was the main propeller of the team, with a 16th-place finish from Aaron Chandler and a 20th-place finish from freshman Kent Slaney, who ran despite battling a painful hip flexor injury.

well Robinson, and all of her runners, were able to perform, despite the less-than-ideal racing conditions. “It’s one thing to run on a cool day where it’s misty,” Plumer said. “But to do it when it’s in the mid70s and dusty . . . that really says something.” Robinson estimated that she had run the course five or more times in the past, and said the win was made more satisfying because she was unable to compete in the SCVAL championship last season. As a result, Gunn finished fourth. Robinson also explained that

center. Sophomore Mason Randall has taken over the starting quarterback duties, replacing the graduated Kevin Donahoe. Although Donahoe had a lot of success for Sacred Heart, Randall has been statistically his superior, completing a higher percentage of his throws (66 percent to 53 percent), averaging a higher yardper- pass-attempt ratio (15.3 to 9.6) and delivering a better overall QB rating (124 to 118). “Randall does such a good job for a sophomore,” Lavorato said. “He’s very poised back there.” SHP has had a lot of success offensively this season, averaging 38 points a game behind a strong offensive line and ground attack that pounds out an average of 261 rushing yards per game. On the flipside, Terra Nova’s defense has been great at stopping the run this season, holding good rushing schools such as

Menlo-Atherton and Sequoia to well under their season averages in rushing yards. Terra Nova has a really good defense, they’ve always been good,” Randall said. “But on offense, I feel like if we just do our thing, we’ll do alright.” Defensively, the Gators will have their hands full with one of the best passing attacks in the CCS, as junior quarterback Aaron Gordon already has thrown for 2,507 yards and 22 touchdowns on the season, with a 71 percent completion rate. Sacred Heart’s secondary will have to cover a bevy of receiving targets that Gordon has at his disposal, including senior wide receivers Jaylen Jones and Domenic Ortisi, both of whom have caught over 50 balls already this year. If the passing game wasn’t dominant enough for the Tigers, it is also complemented by a very stout rushing attack, led by senior running back John Wallace, who averages 142 rushing yards per game. He rushed for 275 with five

TDs against Menlo School a few weeks ago. To stop the multi-faceted Terra Nova offensive attack, the Gators will need a big performance out of their star defender, junior linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven (94 tackles on the season), as well as the other leaders of its defense, such as senior defensive lineman Nic Collazo (3 tackles for loss) senior defense back Noah Kawasaki (3 interceptions) and junior linebacker JR Hardy (4 caused fumbles). “Our defense has done a great job all year,” Randall said. “We know we just need to score 20 or more points in a game and our defense will stop (the opponent).” With so much at stake, as well as the history between the two teams, the game figures to be a heated affair. “We want to want to beat them really bad,” Segre said. Segre scored four touchdowns and rushing for 129 yards in the Gators’ 33-3 win over visiting Sequoia last week. Ricky Grau added 117 rushing yards and Randall completed 10 of 15 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Sacred Heart received big efforts from junior linebackers Hardy and BurrKirven. Hardy picked off two of the Cherokees’ four pass attempts, while Burr-Kirven set the tone for the Gators on defense and special teams, racking up a number of bone-crushing tackles while finishing with 24, 17 of them solo.

Quail Lodge Golf Club in Carmel Valley. “It would have been nice to have won, but I was happy to move on to States,” Knight said. Xie, who was the CCS individual champion, now has won back-to-back titles and has the first-year Vikings heading to their first state finals. “Michelle’s score was big today,” Knight said. “She played the best out of all the other number ones by a minimum of seven strokes. Usually it comes down to

my 5 and 6 scorer.” Joining Palo Alto will be NorCal team champ St. Francis (Mountain View)m which shot 423, and Amador Valley, which finished third at 444. Gunn, which finished third at the CCS finals, wound up fifth with 449 strokes — giving the CCS three teams among the top five. Freshman Emily Hwang shot 84 to help Paly advance. Senior Annie Chen shot 88 for the Vikings while senior Audrey Horn added an 89 and freshman Elise Kiya shot 95. Also advancing to the state finals as an individual was Gunn senior Jayshree Sarathy. She shot 80

and was among nine individuals not on qualifying teams to move on. Gunn junior Anna Zhou just missed out joining her teammate after finishing with an 82. Zhou won last year’s CCS title with a 68 on the same course. “Tough day for everyone out there —windy and fast greens,” said Knight. “I truly believed it would be us, Gunn and St Francis moving on. Anna (Zhou) didn’t shoot very well, so Amador slide in past them.” In addition to Sarathy and Zhou, the Titans got a 91 from Tiffany Yang, a 93 from Lianna McFarlane-Connelly and Sandra Herchen’s 103.

He rushed for two touchdowns and passed for two more, one a 95-yard strike to Keesean Johnson, who caught three passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns. In the PAL Bay Division, Menlo-Atherton (2-2, 5-3) will host Menlo School (2-1, 6-2) at 7 p.m. The Bears are coming off a 5727 loss to Terra Nova while the Knights defeated host South San Francisco, 48-22. M-A senior quarterback Brian Keare completed 21 of 32 passes for a career-high 324 yards and accounted for three touchdowns, including an 82-yard scoring strike to Isiah Nash. Keare’s oneyard TD plunge got M-A to within 28-21 at halftime before turnovers proved costly for M-A in the second half. Ryan Roberts had eight receptions for 119 yards and Nash had three for 107. Nash gained 64 yards rushing on 20 carries but the Bears managed just a total of 117 on the ground.

In South SF, Menlo senior quarterback Jack Heneghan threw a career-high seven touchdown passes and completed 27 of 50 passes for 391 yards.
