Palo Alto launches conversation on city’s future ‘Our Palo Alto’ will start with Monday’s council discussion of residential parking permits by Gennady Sheyner

F

aced with a tense political climate, a dearth of parking and a daunting laundry list of traffic-related initiatives, Palo Alto officials are launching a new planning effort aimed at getting the public involved in a deep conversation about the city’s future. The initiative, dubbed Our Palo

Alto, is centered around the city’s ongoing update of its land-use bible, the Comprehensive Plan, and related conversations over growth and development, subjects that have dominated City Council agendas throughout the past year. The public outcry over new developments, particularly those

that violate established zoning and height limits, hit its high note last November, when voters overwhelmingly overturned in a referendum an approved housing development on Maybell Avenue. At the same time, downtown residents and land-use watchdogs have been up in arms about downtown’s recent spurt in commercial growth and the resulting parking shortage in residential neighborhoods. City Manager James Keene said

Wednesday that Our Palo Alto would stretch for about two years and include meetings, forums, surveys and other to-be-determined outreach tools. It would aim to reach residents who don’t normally attend council meetings and encourage dialogue between and among neighbors about the city’s future. It would also cover a wide range of topics relating to development, including reforming the city’s controversial “planned community� zoning; considering

new uses for land in certain neighborhoods; and introducing incentives to entice downtown workers to ditch their cars and switch to other modes of transportation. “Our goal is to support a broadbased discussion about where the city’s going and where the city’s future is,â€? Keene said at a press conference Wednesday. The effort also includes as one of its earliest action items the city’s ­VÂœÂ˜ĂŒÂˆÂ˜Ă•i`ĂŠÂœÂ˜ĂŠÂŤ>}iʙŽ

Not your ordinary field trip Seventy Beijing elementary students visit Palo Alto’s Ohlone Elementary School by Chris Kenrick

ith paisley backpacks, Adidas sweats and baseball caps, many of the 9- and 10-year-old children visiting from China were indistinguishable from their American hosts at Ohlone Elementary School Wednesday morning — though a few of the visitors wore uniforms of orange jackets and blue caps.

The 70 visiting students — from two Beijing primary schools as well as a group called Young Cultural Ambassadors — spent the morning singing and talking with their U.S. counterparts, visiting classrooms and petting the sheep and goats in Ohlone’s farm. “I think America is very beautiful,� said 9-year-old Yiwen

Zhou, who is visiting the United States for the first time. “And I can learn more English.� Her 10-year-old friend Qiyue Wang said she had traveled in 2012 to Canada and last year to England. Such is elementary education — at least for some lucky children — in the age of globalization.

The students are on a monthlong winter break, slated to return to school in mid-February for a term that runs to July. Earlier on the trip, they visited Disneyland and Universal Studios, Yiwen said. Later they were headed to San Jose State University and to the

hen Palo Alto officials unveiled in early 2012 a proposal by billionaire developer John Arrillaga to turn a central downtown site into an office-and-theater complex, they unwittingly triggered a community backlash that continues to haunt the city to this day. The proposal, which included four office towers far exceeding the city’s 50-foot height limit, became a political nightmare. Residents blasted the city’s lack of transparency in working with Arrillaga and panned the proposal’s blatant disregard for the city’s Comprehensive Plan, which discourages building heights that interfere with views of the foothills and encourages protection of historic structures (in this case, the historic Julia Morgan building, which currently houses the MacArthur Park restaurant). Though the City Council effectively pulled the plug on the proposal in December 2012, council members still refer to the political damage done. Last month, Councilman Pat Burt noted that many people still think the project is alive and argued that allowing the proposal to “get too far in the process has undermined the credibility of the council.� “The harm that gets done when we allow projects like this to go far along is very difficult to repair,� Burt said. But even as the city has hit the brakes on Arrillaga’s proposal,

Conflict is not a bad thing in a democracy. —James Keene, Palo Alto city manager, on likely criticism of city leadership as part of a new initiative aimed at getting more people involved in talking about the city’s future. See story on page 5.

Around Town

A D-GRADING GRADE ... Palo Alto got a D on its “smoking report card� from the American Lung Association. How can that be? What about the city’s swift and decisive move to ban smoking in all its parks? Don’t they know about the city’s consideration of a smoking ban in both its major commercial thoroughfares? Apparently, they do, and it’s still not enough to earn an “A� grade — an honor that only 18 cities in California share, including Berkeley, which just made it onto the shortlist this year. The report states that smoking-cessation efforts across the country have been working, but the air in California has stagnated — at least in the areas the association cares about: tobacco prevention-and-control spending, smokefree air, cigarette tax and cessation coverage. The report tested all 482 incorporated cities in the state for three areas — smoke free outdoor air, smokefree housing and reducing sales of tobacco products. While Palo Alto did score extra points this year for its efforts in the area of creating smokefree outdoor air, it didn’t improve its score in that area, which was stuck at a C. To make matters worse, the C grade was dragged down by F’s in the other two categories. It scored zero points on things like providing nonsmoking living units and common areas and banning sales near schools and parks. We thought we were pretty special for our smoking bans in parks, but it turns out that 326 cities and counties already restrict smoking in recreation areas. But take heart, Palo Alto: Nearly two-thirds of all municipalities in California received an “F� grade. So, really, we’re slightly above average! WHIRLWIND ARTS COMMISSION? ... 2014 is a milestone year for the city’s public art commission, with the official completion in early January of a years-long effort to implement a percent-for-art program in private development. The ordinance is now in effect, and staff has already started meeting with interested developers. “It’s launched; it’s here; it’s moving,� said Public Art Manager Elise DeMarzo last week. Also launched and moving are three public-art projects: a light-and-sound installation coming to the pedestrian tunnel under University Avenue, a tobe-determined project for the municipal golf course and another new media project, to be installed front and center in the City Hall

lobby. Calls for artist submissions for the latter two projects have gone out already; the golf course deadline is Feb. 2, and City Hall’s is Feb. 10. This year will also see new leadership for the group, with the commission unanimously voting Kathleen Kavanaugh in as the new chairperson and Ben Miyaji as vice-chairperson. “The newbies take over!� Commissioner Vikki Tobak said, to the laughter of the entire commission and staff. Kavanaugh and Miyaji are the commission’s most recent additions.

VISIONS OF ‘NOVEL RELATIONSHIPS’ ... A Gunn High School student is among 40 teens from across the United States named this week as finalists in the 2014 Intel Science Talent Search. Charles Xin Liu was chosen for his integrated meta-analysis of 64 diseases, which identified “novel relationships between systemic sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus.� Liu was selected from nearly 1,800 initial contest entrants to present his research to judges in Washington, D.C., in March. He’ll be joined by four other finalists from Santa Clara County from San Jose’s Lynbrook High School, The Harker School in San Jose, and Monta Vista High School in Cupertino. BET THE RECEPTION IS GREAT ... Arogyaswami Joseph Paulraj, professor emeritus at Stanford University, has snatched up the prestigious 2014 Marconi Society Prize. His idea for using multiple antennas at both the transmitting and receiving stations, which is at the heart of the current high-speed WiFi and 4G mobile systems, has been instrumental in wireless delivery of multimedia services for billions of people. The Marconi Society, celebrating its 50th year in 2014, was founded by Gioia Marconi Braga. Each year it recognizes one or more scientists who — like her father, radio inventor Guglielmo Marconi — pursue advances in communications and information technology for the social, economic and cultural development of all humanity. Winners, who receive $100,000, have included scientists whose mathematical theories and inventions have shaped the Internet and broadband access, public key encryption, Web search, wired and wireless transmission, multimedia publishing, optical fiber and satellite communications.

Zuckerberg, Chan give $5 million to East Palo Alto health center Ravenswood Family Health Center could begin construction in a month by Sue Dremann

6iĂ€ÂœÂ˜ÂˆV>ĂŠ7iLiĂ€

F

acebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are donating $5 million toward the construction of a new health center in East Palo Alto. The announcement was made Wednesday on behalf of the couple during a ground-breaking ceremony for the Ravenswood Family Health Center at 1885 Bay Road. The Zuckerberg/Chan donation pushes the project over its fundraising goal for the construction of the facility, though another $7 million is needed for equipment and furnishing. The pair joined many Silicon Valley individuals, businesses and organizations that have contributed to the $29 million project. Const r uct ion of t he 38,000-square-foot facility could begin in a month, pending approval of permits by the city, Ravenswood Health Center CEO Luisa Buada said. The center is expected to open in spring 2015. Since 2001, Ravenswood has provided comprehensive medical, dental and mental health services in East Palo Alto out of portable buildings at 1798-A Bay Road in the city’s industrial zone, surrounded by car repair and sheetmetal shops. About 97 percent of the health center’s clients are ethnic minorities and 93 percent live at or below the poverty line, East Palo Alto Mayor Laura Martinez said. Of its 150-member staff, 45 percent are hired from the community, making the center one of the largest employers of East Palo Alto residents in the city. The new facility will enable Ravenswood to serve 22,000 patients

It will have 58 exam rooms, 13 behavioral-health counseling rooms, a laboratory, imaging and mammography capabilities, optometry exams and a pharmacy. The center will also enable residency programs in pediatrics, internal medicine and family practice to expand, Buada said. The announcement and ground-

breaking was met with cheers and applause in a white tent at the new site, which is near Pulgas Avenue. The new facility is a far cry from the days when pediatric vaccinations were conducted from the back of a pickup truck, said Chris Dawes, president and CEO of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and a member of Ravenswood’s

advisory council. It was 1998, and a Packard Hospital pediatric fellow had launched a project to vaccinate East Palo Alto children. Dawes and the student drove around to apartments and offered the vaccinations from the back of the truck. “It made me a bit nervous. I thought, ‘There’s got to be a better way to do this,’� he recalled.

He joined the task force that went on to create Ravenswood. Buada had initially planned to work as a consultant for three months, but over the years she has helped build the Belle Haven Clinic in East Menlo Park, the Center for Health Promotion, which offers classes and ­VÂœÂ˜ĂŒÂˆÂ˜Ă•i`ĂŠÂœÂ˜ĂŠÂŤ>}iĂŠ9)

Opening of new Paly buildings pushed back to spring Groundbreaking set for new theater after classroom building, media center complete by Chris Kenrick

S

tudents and teachers waiting to occupy Palo Alto High School’s new two-story classroom building and Media Arts center will have to wait a little longer. Completion date for the two buildings — originally set for June 2013 — is now more likely to be “sometime this spring,� said Bob Golton, a district official managing construction under the $387 million Strong Schools facilities bond passed in 2008. Workers from Taisei Construction Corp. remain on the job despite a lawsuit, currently wend-

ing its way through Santa Clara County Superior Court, over $1.65 million in disputed costs. The June 2013 lawsuit, in which Taisei alleges that delays and required rebuilding were caused by the district’s “unbuildable� design elements, is in the fact-finding phase. An exact occupancy date for the buildings remains uncertain, Golton said. The classroom building is “significantly ahead� of the Media Arts building, he said. “In the last week or so they’ve averaged maybe 45 or 50 workers a day, which is lower than they

had in the fall but higher than what they had in December and early January,� he said. “Their latest revised (completion) date for both buildings is Feb. 21. “We’re continuously monitoring their progress and trying to assist them in finishing.� Paly’s math and social studies departments will occupy the 27 classrooms in the two-story building once it’s completed. The Media Arts building, visible from Embarcadero Road, still needs considerable interior painting, plastering and electrical work, Golton said.

Completion of Palo Alto High School’s new two-story, 17-classroom building, which will be used for math and social sciences, is now expected sometime in the spring. The combined budget for both buildings was $17.1 million. Once the buildings are completed and the construction staging area cleared, Golton said, groundbreaking is expected for a new $24.4 million Performing

Arts Center, also on the Embarcadero edge of the Paly campus. The center will include a 583seat theater, a lobby with restrooms, tickets, concessions and a gallery area as well as classroom and storage space. N

hat’s more emblematic of Palo Alto than a Stanford University graduate designing an interactive LEDlight-and-sound art installation that, with the help of a local tech company and Stanford students, will reinvigorate a much-used public space? Not much — or at least that’s what the Public Arts Commission seems to think. The city body gave its unanimous stamp of approval last week for local artist Ala Ebtekar to move forward with his project, to be installed in the pedestrian walkways in downtown’s University Avenue underpass. Ebtekar, a San Francisco-based artist who received an MFA degree from Stanford in 2006, imagines lighting the pedestrian tunnels with swaths of subtle color that would gradually change throughout the day. The light would be sensitive to its environment, changing depending on the time of day or the amount of traffic passing through, for example. Ebtekar has also proposed painting sub-sections of the walls with different colors — dark and light gray, for example — so the light interplay will vary throughout installation. The lights could also be programmed to coordinate with local events, such as a “glowing red� for Stanford game days, Chair Larissa Usich said. “The concept is to have it wave over you,� she added. “It’s not going to be flashing or super bright in your face.� Ebtekar is also planning a sound element — perhaps music by Stanford musicians or a local band or requests submitted by the public, Usich said. Staff has consulted with technical advisers from the city as well as the city electrician to work out safety, installation or logistical issues. “They are not concerned at all about it,� Usich said. Currently, there are fluorescent lights down the middle of the pedestrian tunnels’ ceilings. They would be removed and Ebtekar would install more energyefficient LED lights, as well as conduits for speakers. There’s a minimum and maximum standard for lighting in such walkways; the installation would fall within the approved amount, Usich said. Usich also said that drivers passing through the underway might “get a glow� as they’re driving through, but it won’t be distracting. Ebtekar’s proposal also in-

by Elena Kadvany cludes development of a Twitter application that would allow the community to interact with and control the light and sound. He also plans community talks and public-art walks. Stanford students will also be involved in project development and installation, Commissioner Vikki Tobak said. Ebtekar has also reached out to Palo Alto tech company Blurred Whisper to complete the programming necessary for the installation. A subcommittee of commissioners said they, along with a selection panel, unanimously nominated Ebtekar over four other finalists’ for not only his artistic talent, but also local partnerships he’s already forged and his own connections to the area. “I feel like inevitably when you’re selecting an artist you can get somebody whose concept is great or somebody who’s local or who’s really met the brief for the budget,� Commissioner Amanda Ross said. “We’re really lucky as a city because not only we’ve gotten

a local guy, we’ve gotten an immensely talented artist who I’m really excited to have among our pantheon of greatness.� Berkeley-born Ebtekar’s art — mainly photography, drawing, painting and installation — has been displayed in the Asian Art Museum and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco as well as the Palo Alto Art Center, among other U.S. and international museums. The project will cost an estimated $65,000. The commission has raised $30,000 so far through a $15,000 donation from Stanford that the commission matched last summer. “Now that there is a project that’s been selected, new discussions will begin about seeking the additional funding,� Usich said.

proposed “residential parking permit program� (RPP), which will be debated at Monday’s council meeting. If approved, the program would allow residents to buy up to two permits per household to park on neighborhood streets and would set some permits aside for downtown employees. Cars that don’t have permits would face time restrictions, much like they do on most blocks in downtown’s commercial core. The program, which has attracted vehement criticism from both residents and businesses, also creates criteria for other neighborhoods that want to adopt the program. This includes support from at least 70 percent of neighborhood residents and a threshold of parked cars of at least 75 percent. City officials said Wednesday that the parking-permit discussion will be just the first of many city efforts to calm downtown’s frustrations over insufficient parking. In February, staff plans to propose some first steps toward building a new downtown garage; begin a process for aggressively expanding the city’s shuttle program; explore the creation of satellite parking lots east of U.S. Highway 101; and introduce a slew of “transportationdemand-management� (TDM) initiatives aimed at getting drivers to switch from cars to other modes of transportation. This

Health Resources and Services Administration, which got the money through the Affordable Care Act, she said. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, who has long been involved in supporting Ravenswood, hailed the project as a long-needed community resource. “This has been the most underserved community in our region and we all knew it, and something had to be done about

it,� she said. Major donors include the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, Palo Alto Medical Foundation/ Sutter Health, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, John and Sue Sobrato and the Sobrato Family Foundation, John and Jill Freidenrich, Dick and Sue Levy, and Gordon Russell and Tina McAdoo.

includes establishing a transportation-management authority, an agency that would collect money from members — most likely private companies — and use the funds for such programs as Caltrain passes and car-sharing services. The proposed parking program has yet to undergo its first public hearing, but early reviews have already been harsh. Residents have panned it as too complex and argued that the threshold for resident participation is too high. Downtown employers deride it as a “huge waste of money� and want the city to ditch the program altogether in favor of other strategies for reducing parking congestion. This includes designating certain spots on neighborhood streets as for residents only. Planning Director Hillary Gitelman said Wednesday that while some details of the program remain uncertain (including the question of how many permits should be designated for businesses), success will depend in large part on the city’s other efforts pertaining to downtown traffic. “We already heard from people on both sides,� Gitelman said. “Everyone agrees on basic principles, one of which is that the RPP is only part of the puzzle.� Regarding the existing Comprehensive Plan, which had a planning horizon of 1998-2010, Gitelman said the council had initially planned to make only minor changes as part of the revision. Recent development trends,

however, have prompted considerations of broader changes. “The world has changed. The economy has come roaring back,� Gitelman said. “The community has expressed an interest in looking more broadly at issues.� To help with the work, the city plans to hire a few more planners in the next fiscal year, Gitelman said. Keene stressed that the design of Our Palo Alto is still in the works, but it is expected that the city will hire consultants to facilitate the process. Claudia Keith, the city’s chief communication officer, said Our Palo Alto could include walking tours, lectures from experts, and a dedicated website with multimedia components and opportunities for residents to offer their opinions. “We really have to develop 20 different channels or approaches to get involved,� Keene said, noting that some will inevitably fail. In addition to informing the city’s update of the Comprehensive Plan, officials expect the new initiative to also support the council’s goal of fostering more civic engagement, even if this engagement includes a heavy dose of criticism. “The fact that there is conflict is not a bad thing in a democracy,� Keene said. “It’s not a symbol of failure. It’s a symbol that there is passion and different opinions about things.� N Staff Writer Gennady Sheyner can be emailed at gsheyner@ paweekly.com.

The local housing market experienced another year of exceptional strength in 2013. The Bay Area saw stellar growth with IPOs and buyouts creating a new wave of millionaires. Private sales were mostly in the upper-end market and are not factored into my statistics. Low mortgage rates and job stability continue to motivate buyers. The increase of foreign cash investors and scarce inventories created a bidding frenzy. As a result, most homes saw multiple offers with cash buyers dominating the winning bids. In 2013 single-family home sales totaled 396 in Palo Alto, 336 in Menlo Park, 97 in Atherton, 78 in Portola Valley and 110 in Woodside. The median single family home price increased 22% in Palo Alto to $2,100,000, 12% in Menlo Park to $1,658,000, 16% in Atherton to $3,575,000, 3% in Portola Valley to $2,268,000 and 28% in Woodside to $2,052,000. The townhouse/condominium market was also strong in Palo Alto with the median sale price increasing 7%.

Menlo Park saw a median price decrease of 5%. Looking forward: The local housing market is poised for continued growth and there are positive elements in play that provide some reasons for optimism and dispel the worry about a bubble market. Interest rates are still extremely low, unemployment is inching down, and buyers are investing more into purchases of new properties. Higher down payments suggest that buyers don’t intend to make the same mistakes the second time around. Real estate has always been a great way to build wealth and ďŹ nancial stability. I project a 10% increase in home prices this coming year. But make sure to complete the necessary detailed analysis before you decide how much to bid on that house or whether to bid at all. For sellers, there is no better time to sell your home. For buyers, if you have a stable income, it is good time to buy before further increases in interest rates and house prices occur.

Ohlone Principal Bill Overton said student trips to China had been discussed in the six-year history of the Mandarin Immersion Program, but never undertaken. Because of state rules barring parent financing of school-sponsored trips, any such trip would have to be organized by parents and done during vacation time, he said.

hen temperatures plummeted in early December, the freezing temperatures were viewed by the Palo Alto group Neighbors Helping Neighbors as an emergency on par with disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes. At least five homeless people froze to death in Santa Clara County that month, including a 72-year-old Palo Alto woman, Gloria Bush, according to the Santa Clara County Coroner. Concerned about people sleeping on the streets or in their cars, the group, based in Midtown, sprang into action. They provided more than 50 homeless residents, families with children and individuals who have medical needs, with motel stays. They distributed emergency supplies to help prevent hypothermia during the bitterest nights. Recipients said that the services of Neighbors Helping Neighbors

have been a lifeline. “It’s graced our lives,� Susan Russaw, 68, said. Russaw and her 85-year-old husband, James, were given priority for the motel stays this winter, Executive Director Caryll-Lynn Taylor said, as James must have kidney dialysis. The couple lived in a one-bedroom apartment for eight years and paid $800 a month. But a substantial increase put them on the streets. They have lived in their 1994 Ford Explorer since Dec. 3, 2012, Russaw said. They are on a waiting list for subsidized housing. The couple developed influenza this winter while living in the cold, Russaw said. Neighbors Helping Neighbors provided motel stays and 11 days in a resident’s cottage. “We didn’t want to spend another winter outside. Really, we were so lucky. They bent over

backwards for us,� she said. Another woman, “Jane,� and her 16-year-old daughter have been living in their car for the past 1 1/2 years after Jane was laid off from her accounting job. She was in her profession for 25 years, but she did not have a degree. She is back in college and could graduate with a degree in the spring. A few more months would give her a double-associate’s degree in accounting and business, which would mean better pay, she said. “Finding work that paid enough was impossible. Unemployment benefits were not enough to pay the rent. I am the sole breadwinner. Ten dollars an hour does not put a roof over our heads. We decided on what sacrifices to make. The sacrifice was not having a roof over our head so we could get to something better,� she said. Jane’s daughter, a senior at

Palo Alto High School, did not want to leave her school, so they did not move away. Jane works odd jobs part time to support the pair. Occasional hotel stays, thanks to Neighbors Helping Neighbors, have helped Jane and her daughter this winter. “One of the best was the second week in December for two days. It was a Monday and Tuesday, and Tuesday was when my finals were. It was nice to be in a hotel room to study for my finals,â€? she said. When not staying in motels, Jane and her daughter use the emergency survival kit supplied by Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

Quality of life tops neighborhood concerns in 2014 Addressing problems of parking, large developments gain momentum for residents by Sue Dremann

C

limaxing with the passage of an anti-development referendum in November, 2013 was a year when Palo Alto residents pushed back. This year, neighborhood leaders throughout Palo Alto say they will continue to focus on their fight to preserve what they view as their threatened quality of life. The proposed redevelopment of Buena Vista Mobile Home Park on El Camino Real into 180 high-end apartments will come to the forefront for the neighborhood this year, said Art Liberman, outgoing Barron Park Association president. Some neighbors support efforts by Buena Vista’s 400 lowincome residents to stay. Though a bid by the residents to purchase the multimillion-dollar property was rejected in September by the property owners, the Jissers, Buena Vista denizens hold out hope that a buy-out might still be possible, should the redevelopment plan fail to clear several city hurdles.

The fate of the plating facility at Communications & Power Industries (CPI), which has been the source of hazardous emissions and stormwater accidents, will also re-emerge this year for Barron Park. For years, residents have wanted the plating facility to be shut down. A draft report of a technical analysis of hazardous materials at the site is scheduled for release to the public this year. College Terrace residents face a multiple-year construction project adjacent to their neighborhood, due to begin this year. Stanford University plans to demolish buildings in Stanford Research Park, along South California Avenue, to make way for 250 housing units. The demolition and site preparation could begin in November, said Brent Barker, College Terrace Residents Association president. The flow of construction equipment along South California and Hanover Street concerns the neighborhood group, which has actively sought to keep traf-

‘Fourteen wheelers shedding mud and dirt (and) sharing a road with kids on bikes is asking for trouble.’ — Brent Barker, president, College Terrace Residents Association mud and dirt (and) sharing a road with kids on bikes is asking for trouble,� he said. The neighborhood can expect one truck to pass through every eight to 10 minutes, six to eight hours a day, for six days a week for three years, according to Stanford’s data, he noted. “The result will be continuous vehicular congestion ... noise, vibration and general disrup-

Residents are heartened by the city’s movement toward finding a solution, said Downtown North neighborhood resident Neilson Buchanan. But they are also determined to keep on the pressure. “The most exciting is the city’s plunging into traffic-demand management. It is a precursor to any relief for our neighborhoods,� said Buchanan, who has

spearheaded efforts to measure parking problems in his neighborhood. “We are in a stand-off situation while we struggle with techniques and funding. If we did our due diligence — if we did a Manhattan-type project and put our heads together — we could have a plan in 90 to 100 days,� he said. But the city must then fund any solution, he said. With offices taking over traditional retail spaces and new workspace models that pack in employees, the city will need to find or build more parking. Parking will become a growing issue across town, including in Evergreen Park, which lies adjacent to the California Avenue business district, he said. “I’m more concerned for California Avenue. They are in a much bigger pickle,� Buchanan said, noting that a renovation of the retail district is scheduled to begin in March, and the construction could push more traffic onto residential streets.

The stolen items came to a value of approximately $14,000. While officers were on scene, an AT&T employee used the “Find My iPhone� app, which, when installed, can locate a lost or stolen device using GPS. The app located the iPad in a parking lot at the corner of Sherman Avenue and Birch Street in Palo Alto, where a police officer noticed a car with a heap of items covered with a jacket on the rear floorboard. The officer ran a registration check on the car’s license plate and saw it also had a suspended registration. After exiting the lot, the officer followed and pulled the car over for the registration violation. The heap in the back of the car turned out to be all of the Foundry’s stolen property, as well as a crowbar and other pry tools. “Police credit the ‘Find My iPhone’ application in leading them to the suspects in this case,� the press release states.

Three men forced their way into the home of a Palo Alto couple in their 80s and robbed them at gunpoint on Thursday morning, Jan. 23, police said. The thieves, one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered the 400 block of Palo Alto Avenue near Waverley Street after knocking on the door, according to police. The female resident opened the door and was immediately confronted by the men, who forced their way into the home and made the couple lay down on the floor. The men took wallets, cash, miscellaneous personal property and an unloaded handgun from the home. Neither victim was injured. The victims last saw the thieves flee in a vehicle headed eastbound on Palo Alto Avenue. Officers responding to a 9-1-1 call at 10:42 a.m. immediately searched the area, but they were unable to find any suspects, police said. The robbers are described as black men in their 20s. All wore dark, hooded sweatshirts with the hoods pulled over their heads. One man had a small black handgun. The suspect vehicle is a newer, large “boxy-looking� beige or white four-door sedan.

Demand for EV charging stations sparks conflict Rising numbers of electric vehicles in Palo Alto have put the city’s public charging stations to use almost all day long and have spurred reports of “charge rage� at at least one private company that offers electric-vehicle charging. The City of Palo Alto has 10 chargers, each of them located in the city’s parking garages, that can be used for free during a 3-hour time limit. Data from the city’s five “smart� chargers states that the chargers fill electric vehicle batteries for more than 14 hours per day. This is a large number, the report says, because the stations generally aren’t used during the nighttime. While the city’s other five charging stations are “dumb� chargers, meaning they don’t track charger-use data, parking manager Jessica Sullivan said she expects they get about the same amount of use as the city’s “smart� chargers. However, over the course of those 14 hours, there is an average of 5.4 charging sessions on each charger, meaning an average of 54 people a day are able to charge their cars. Sullivan said she frequently gets emails from residents asking when the city will be installing more, and while the city plans to include more charging stations, it currently doesn’t have the infrastructure to include more chargers in its parking garages. “I don’t think anyone would have guessed a few years ago that there would be so many (Tesla) Model S’s driving in Palo Alto,� she said. The Mercury News reported that the 16 charging stations at German software company SAP’s Palo Alto campus are not meeting the demand of the company’s 61 electric vehicle-driving employees. “Cars are getting unplugged while they are actively charging, and that’s a problem,� an SAP employee told the Mercury News. “Employees are calling and messaging each other, saying, ‘I see you’re fully charged, can you please move your car?’� N — Eric Van Susteren

A core group of 500 volunteers citywide donate money and time to do outreach, find resources and distribute services. At scheduled outreach events, volunteers help the needy fill out forms and do interviews to address immediate needs. Neighbors develop an action plan for each person, she said.

Homelessness anywhere, but especially in resource-rich Palo Alto, “is an unacceptable situation, and it doesn’t have to be that way, as demonstrated by our small amount of resources,� Taylor said.

the prospect of redeveloping the 4.3-acre site at 27 University Ave., which is next to a busy Caltrain station and which serves as a gateway between Stanford and downtown Palo Alto, continues to inspire urban planners, architects and graduate students. The city had initially planned to hold six to eight community meetings to solicit public input about what to do with the site — an approach that the council endorsed last June. But now, city staff is backing away from that plan in favor of a more general conversation about downtown’s future. For a group of graduate students from Stanford University and its partners abroad, though, the prospect of redeveloping the site and creating a “21st Century Research Park� is more than a pipe dream. It’s also a homework assignment. Coordinated by local architect and former Councilman John Barton, the project pits teams of students from different disciplines and schools, with each team offering a particular vision for 27 University. Each team has been working on its vision since last fall and each presented its concept on Thursday at City Hall in front of a crowd of faculty, students and local commission-

Six international, interdisciplinary teams of students from Stanford University and partner universities presented their ideas Jan. 23 for creating a “21st Century Research Park� in Palo Alto. ers. In an interview earlier this week, Barton told the Weekly that the goal of the project is not to pre-empt the citywide discussion but to “augment it� and to give the participating students a chance to blend pure theory with

real-world application. “If the only thing that comes out of this is students learning to present ideas to people who are highly engaged in a particular project, that’s great,� Barton said. “If cool ideas come out and the

community rallies around some set of ideas, that’s great too, but it’s not our expectation.� The ideas presented Thursday were ambitious and far-ranging, with the first team, dubbed Team Nukak, offering a “hybrid� model

in which buildings are envisioned as flexible spaces with an eclectic mix of changing uses. The goal, according to the presentation, was to “create this timeless building and to give the opportunity to have long- and short-term models and uses.� Team Nukak was followed by Team Astina, which offered as part of its scheme a set of “porous� buildings where high-tech workers can congregate, ample open space and a tall tower that combines commercial uses (an accelerator for startups, for instance) and residential ones (affordable housing, for example). “We kind of tried to get people to mix within the tower, create this sort of vibrant urban experience for users, much like you can get in San Francisco but you won’t necessarily get in Palo Alto with the low-rise housing,� said Sebastian Pertl, an architecture student from Bern University of Applied Sciences and a member of Team Astina. Team Kuchi, by contrast, imagined the site as a “hive� that would support and nurture the swarm of people from Stanford, Palo Alto and the train station. The plan, according to the presentation was to use “the swarming of people and create on the site a hive for people to come together and create a community.� This included creation of a space for density and “intense

Upfront experiences� and improved paths between the site and the nearby San Francisquito Creek. Land uses would follow the theme of “mind, body and soul,� with amenities that include a gym, a library and an amphitheater. Like developers at public hearings, the students had to defend their visions against criticism, though the concerns came mostly from faculty members rather than land-use watchdogs and growth-weary residentialists. One question for Team Astina was: How do you propose to make the housing at the new tower affordable, given the area’s astronomical land values? Steve Barg, a Stanford student in structural engineering, responded that the vision is to have the development operated by a “private partner partnership,� possibly involving Stanford, the local government and a non-government organization. That way, the new development can consider “community needs� and not base all decisions on dollars and cents. While the students had to wrestle with space and time constraints, they were insulated to a large extent from Palo Alto’s political realities. Much like Arrillaga, the students had no qualms about relocating the historical Julia Morgan-designed Hostess House building. This prompted a comment from one member of the viewing public, Historic Resource Board Member Beth Bunnenberg, who pointed out that even though the building was initially built in Menlo Park, it has been in Palo alto for most of its life. “It was named historic on this site, and there are many people who would say it needs to remain there,� Bunnenberg said after Team Astina made its presentation. Barton said the program chose this politically hot issue specifically because of the challenges it offers to the many disciplines involved, including engineers, urban planners and architects. “You want to choose a difficult challenge,� Barton said Thursday. “It’s a political challenge, it’s an architectural challenge and it’s got a question of place. Is it Stanford, Palo Alto or something different?� The City Council and local residents plan to consider these challenges over the next two years, though the city’s plan for facilitating conversation continues to shift. Earlier this month, City Manager James Keene mentioned at a council meeting that staff is no longer planning to proceed with the site-specific process approved last June, but hopes to fold the debate over 27 University Ave. into the broader conversation about the city’s future. This week, Keene unveiled the city’s new initiative called “Our Palo Alto� that aims to bring the public into the discussion. When asked about the staff’s decision not to proceed with the

visioning process that the council approved last June, Keene said the new approach made sense given the broad range of related issues that have surfaced since the summer of 2013. These include the city’s ongoing “downtown cap study,� which aims to determine downtown’s capacity for new development; proposed parking-permit programs and transportation-demand-management programs; exploration of new downtown garages; and the city’s update of its Comprehensive Plan. Keene said staff will present ideas for approaching 27 University and related downtown planning issues on Feb. 3, as it introduces its new initiative, Our Palo Alto. The topic may also come up on Feb. 24, when the council is scheduled to discuss the Comprehensive Plan update. “In June, we were looking at (27 University) as a one-off issue,� Keene said. “Now, we’re having a much bigger conversa-

tion about the whole city.� “It seemed to us that it would be confusing and potentially redundant and presumably even cost ineffective to try to be running some separate parallel process when we are having a much grander discussion around the Comprehensive Plan,� Keene said. “The question of whether that project or any project should go forward at that site is up in the air� and will not be answered until the broader conversation over the Comprehensive Plan takes place. He added that the council can always redirect staff to launch the specific 27 University dialogue as originally envisioned in June. “We’re very focused on this broad community dialogue that I think will take several years,� Keene said.

Roscoe L. Fleming, Jr. April 11, 1933 – January 20, 2014

Linda Sher, artist and political wife, dies at 82

A

rtist Linda B. Sher, a former Palo Alto and Stanford resident and wife of former State Sen. Byron Sher, died Sunday, Jan. 19, in Placerville. She was 82. While raising her three children in Palo Alto in the 1960s and 1970s Sher was active in local education and environmental causes. She supported the political career of her husband, a Stanford Law School professor, who went from serving on the Palo Alto City Council in the 1960s and 1970s to serving in the California Assembly and California Senate from 1980 to 2004. She spent much of her time in Placerville beginning in the late 1980s, while also maintaining residency with her husband on the Stanford campus.

Lawrence (Larry) Charles Duncan December 14, 1943 - January 7, 2014 The son of Marie and Charles Lawrence Duncan, Larry was born on December 14,1943 in Berkeley, California, where his father worked at the Cyclotron at the Lawrence Radiation Labs. The family moved to several locations around the Bay Area during his childhood, settling in East Palo Alto in 1954. There he attended Ravenswood High School, forming close friendships with, among others, Ron McKernan, a future member of the Grateful Dead. Larry earned his GED, and as a dedicated autodidact, he pursued Photo provided by Arne Folkedal various interests in classes with the Midpeninsula Free University, as well as with a creative dropin computer center in Menlo Park in the early days of personal computing. Always an avid reader, and a lover of bookstores, he amassed several libraries over his lifetime, with subjects ranging from eclectic architecture to fractals. At one point in the 1960’s he helped to build the Stanford Linear Accelerator. A gifted artist, he designed posters for the Be-Ins at El Camino Park, worked to bring music to Lytton Plaza, and helped create the Community Garden at the Drop-in Center. For many years Larry was unhoused, living in encampments in the oak groves of Stanford University. In time, this led to him becoming an articulate spokesman for the rights of those who struggle to get a roof over their heads. Always objecting to the term “homeless�, he taught that those who are unhoused in Palo Alto are not homeless: Palo Alto is their home. In his role as community activist, he served with the Community Working Group, The Homelessness Task Force, Stanford Homelessness Action Coalition, and on boards of the Urban Ministry. His advocacy on behalf of his community helped to bring about the creation of the Opportunity Center. Larry’s warmth, kindness, and gentle humor won him friends from all walks of life, so a stroll down University Avenue with him (bearing his gnarled staff before) might include stopping and chatting with the Chief of Police, a street musician, a local shopkeeper, or a city-council member. Of late, at Lytton Gardens he enjoyed the company of the current events and poetry group members, the staff, and his neighbors. He sought patterns in the world around him, loving the shape of branches against the sky, brightly woven fabrics, twinkling lights, an eloquent turn of phrase, wind chimes, smooth pebbles, trade beads, mathematical constructions, and puzzles. He delighted in serendipity, synchronicity, and whimsical coincidences. Larry died on January 7th, 2014, following chronic health problems. He leaves his sister Maralyn Riedel (Hans) of Petaluma, and his niece, Jennifer Riedel (Shawn Malikowski), and nephew, Eric Riedel (Selena), along with a host of devoted friends. He will be sorely missed. A Memorial Service is planned for Thursday, January 30th, in the Parish Hall at All Saints Church, 555 Waverley Street at 10:30 a.m., preceding the Breaking Bread meal. All are invited to attend. Please visit the memorial website at HTTP://Larry-Duncan.LastMemories.com to share your remembrances. PA I D

OBITUARY

Stanley Lenox June 24, 1924-January 15, 2014 Stanley Lenox was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on June 24, 1924. He died after a valiant battle with cancer. Stan grew up in West Orange, N.J. Active in scouting as a youth, he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with Bronze Palm in 1941. The Newark College of Engineering is where Stan got his degree in Civil Engineering (now the New Jersey Institute of Technology – NJIT). His college career was interrupted by a 3 year tour of duty in the army during World War II, where he furthered his engineering studies, and also served as an infantryman in Italy. He married the love of this life, Melva Abramson, in 1947. Melva passed in 2005, after 57 years of marriage. In 1967 Stan moved his family to California so he could assume his role as CEO of Jetstream Systems, a manufacturer of airow conveyer systems. Palo Alto appealed to Stan in part because of his love of sailing. He and Melva belonged to the Oakland Yacht Club where he kept his dream boat, the 37 foot “Y Knotâ€?. Among his sailing adventures was participation in a race from San Francisco to Maui. Stan and Melva also traveled extensively, which was documented by Stan’s expert photography. Examples of Stan’s photographs are currently on display at the Palo Alto Medical Clinic ofďŹ ces. After 25 years with Jetstream, Stan retired and contributed his considerable energy to volunteer work. He tutored at the elementary schools, assisting students with their reading. This program was initiated by Melva for the Palo Alto School District. His work with JobTrain focused on tutoring adults for their GED exams. He received the Volunteer of the Year Award from JobTrain in 2013. In addition, Stan was a strong supporter of Cystic Fibrosis research, a disease aficting one of his grandchildren. Stan is survived by his 3 children; Larry (Kate) of San Jose, Bob (Sharon) of Palo Alto, and Steve (Cindy) of Manchester, MO. Together they provided Stan with 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Stan is survived by his sister Marilyn Zirl, his other sister Adele predeceased Stan. Stanley is also survived by Melva’s sister Ilene and her husband Robert Cowen, as well as Sandra Abramson, the wife of Melva’s brother Edwin Abramson. Stan was known for his honest, straightforward style and his dry wit. He was a role model to his sons and grandchildren. They will all miss their Papa Stan. Donations in Stan’s memory may be made to either the American Cancer Society or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. PA I D

Following her star ‘Silent Sky’ hails pioneering female astronomer Henrietta Leavitt by Jeanie K. Smith

L

auren Gunderson has taken the theater world by storm in the last 10 years, garnering numerous commissions, awards, features and invitations that any young, emerging playwright would be justifiably envious of. She has a fascination with science, astronomy in particular, and a facility with dialogue and character that makes her plays fun and accessible to modern audiences. A native of Atlanta, Gunderson currently resides in San Francisco, making it a timely opportunity for TheatreWorks to mount a stylish production of her 2011 play, “Silent Sky.� It’s rare when playwrights get to be in residence for other than a premiere. Along the lines of some of her earlier works dedicated to sci-

entists, “Silent Sky� chronicles the life of Henrietta Leavitt, a pioneering astronomer from Wisconsin who works tirelessly at the Harvard College Observatory to prove her worth and follow her scientific hunches about the universe. Thwarted in her efforts by a male-dominated field, she nevertheless perseveres and manages to make an astonishing discovery having to do with the relationship between pulsing light from stars and their distance from Earth. Her research forever changes astronomy and leads to other important findings. Leavitt (Elena Wright), or “Henry� as she’s called by her sister Margaret (Jennifer Le Blanc), passionately pursues her interest in the stars, ignoring traditional paths for women. She’s not a bla-

Short-sighted and decidedly unfeminist professor Peter Shaw (Matt Citron) attempts a romantic distraction; sister Margaret urges a more “normalâ€? life like her own. But Leavitt has her own star to follow, and her singlemindedness pays off in enormous proportions. The play serves up inspiration, motivation and wonder, delivering homilies about dreams and

dogged pursuit of passion. It’s far from sappy, though, and may even provide that kick in the pants to get people back to following their own dreams. The actors are lively, well-cast for their roles and able to bring out both the comedy and the humanity of Leavitt’s struggles and triumphs. If there is a drawback to the play, it’s that the first act is inexplicably long and suffers from repetition and redundancy. The action unfolds slowly, with lengthy scenes in the Harvard workroom that do little to advance the story. The second act is much livelier and much shorter, leaving one to wonder why the acts are divided as they are and to wish that Gunderson had given the play another pass through a dramaturgical mill. The excellent actors do their best

to keep the action moving and engaging, but there are still drawnout scenes that are unfocused and circular. But stick around for Act 2 for better scripting and for some beautiful effects by scenic designer Annie Smart and lighting designer Paul Toben. The stars are exquisite, with a depth of field rarely seen on stage. Music by Jenny Giering plays a big role in the show and nicely underscores the action. Costume designer Fumiko Bielefeldt gets to take us from 1900 to 1920 in women’s dress, including some fun with suffragette Cannon.

In Gott’s we trust Fast casual eatery elevates menu with superior ingredients from local artisans by Dale F. Bentson | Photos by Veronica Weber

J

ust another burger stand or something iconic? Gott’s Roadside has been written about from Palm Beach magazine to the Wall Street Journal. It was voted as having one of the best burgers in the country by Food & Wine magazine, and it won a James Beard Foundation award in 2006 for its classic style and food. Iconic is an adjective oft used in describing Gott’s. The local Gott’s opened in late September in Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village, and has been busy ever since. But are its burgers appreciably better than the competition’s? To paraphrase a cliche, burgers are in the eye (or stomach) of the beholder. The Counter, In-N-Out, Bierhaus, Umami and others have their loyalists. Gott’s burgers feature Niman Ranch vegetarian-fed Angus beef, Diestel Family Turkey Ranch turkey patties, veggie burgers, even an ahi tuna burger. Beyond the bun, Gott’s offers tacos, salads, chicken dishes, all kinds of fries, soups and thick shakes. The company’s signature design is sleek industrial panache, featuring open-beam ceiling and concrete floor, bare table tops and utilitarian chairs. The inside

seats 120, with an additional 160 seats on outdoor picnic benches and under covered walkways and patio umbrellas. Joel and Duncan Gott officially started in 1999, but the predecessor drive-in dates to 1949, in St. Helena, in the Napa Valley. It was originally known as Taylor’s Refresher. When the brothers took over the St. Helena location and decided to expand out of the Napa Valley, the Taylor family sued, claiming ownership of the name. The proceedings became complicated and expensive, so the Gotts decided it was easier to change the name. The Taylor’s Refresher sign still stands adjacent to Highway 29 in St. Helena, but the drive-in building says “Gott’s Roadside.� Apparently, a compromise was reached. The other locations — Oxbow Public Market in Napa, the Ferry Building in San Francisco and Town & Country Village — are 100 percent Gott’s. At Gott’s, all burgers are onethird-pound patties, plump and filling, especially when paired with stellar toppings. The delightfully piquant green-chile cheeseburger ($8.99) was layered with jack cheese, avocado, salsa,

Coupled with sweet potato fries ($3.99), which were dusted in chili powder and served with a cooling ranch, it made a delectable meal. There were other tempting burger options. The Wisconsin sourdough ($10.99) was loaded with grilled mushrooms, bacon, cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce. The Western bacon blue ring burger ($10.99) was topped with an onion ring, Point Reyes blue cheese, bacon, pickles, red onion and barbecue sauce. All primo. I did not applaud the ahi tuna burger, though ($14.99). The five ounces of sushi-grade ahi tuna, barely seared, came on an toasted egg bun with ginger wasabi mayonnaise and Asian slaw. The tuna was gristly in the middle and the egg bun disintegrated on contact. It was a mess, and I had to fetch a fork to finish it. For 15 dollars, I expected more. I also had a slight price issue with the fish tacos ($12.99 for two). While the tacos were fat with Mexican slaw, salsa and jalapeno cilantro sour cream, there wasn’t much mahi-mahi. It took several bites before I found the fish nesting at the bottom of the soft corn tortilla. Good flavors, though, and the visual presentation was mouth watering. Gott’s house-made chili ($4.49

cup, $7.99 bowl) was thick with beef and beans. With loads of flavor and made with Anchor Steam beer, the chili was topped with shredded cheddar cheese and green onions. We were in the

midst of that cold spell when I had the chili. It tasted like a million bucks that day. Onion rings ($3.99) deserve ­VÂœÂ˜ĂŒÂˆÂ˜Ă•i`ĂŠÂœÂ˜ĂŠÂ˜iĂ?ĂŒĂŠÂŤ>}iÂŽ

Movies OPENINGS

The Invisible Woman ---1/2 (Century 16) History, they say, is written by the victors. Indeed, popular English novelist Charles Dickens was a winner who jealously protected his legacy. But don’t they also say the truth will out? As adapted from Claire Tomalin’s revealing 1991 biography, Ralph Fiennes’ fascinating film “The Invisible Woman� looks behind the curtain at the whispered-about mistress Dickens never publicly acknowledged. Fiennes’ film takes the point of view of its title character, Ellen “Nelly� Ternan (Felicity Jones). When the film opens, Dickens has been dead for 13 years, and a married Nelly has settled into a life as a teacher at the High School in Margate. But her long walks on the beach betray a psychic unrest: Clad head to toe in heavy black Victorian dress, Nelly finds cold comfort in these walks, which tip off the local vicar (John Kavanagh) that something is amiss. Memories unfold, transporting us back to 1857 and Nelly’s first encounter with Dickens (Fiennes). On hearing teenage Nelly recite the epilogue of a play he’s co-written, Dickens remarks, “She has something,� but that something isn’t sustainable acting talent. Rather it is a spark of attractiveness in her beauty and her character. It doesn’t take long for Nelly’s mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) to read the signs, and understand the opportunity Dickens represents for her daughter of dwindling promise. Dickens’ co-playwright Wilkie Collins sums up his friend: “He is a good man trying to be a good man, but he is a great man.� Known for his family values as a husband and father of 10, Dickens also pursues social justice through charitable works. But any interest in his wife Catherine (a memorable Joanna Scanlan) has long since dissipated, and

a flame begins to burn for Nelly. So begins a long, complex mating dance, with the deep-thinking Nelly attracted to the great writer and improved prospects but cursed by having to share him with his family and his public, and endure her gender’s second-class social status. Fiennes’ understated film, expertly scripted by Abi Morgan (“The Iron Lady�), stands confidently on a firm foundation of historical detail and depths of emotional understanding. Soft-lit elegance and exquisite period detail capture the Victorian era in more ways than one: The stately trappings help to tamp down the emotions so obviously yearning to break free of social mores and economic strictures and psychological repression. Crucially, we stay at the side of the conflicted Nelly, and Jones proves as powerful in nuanced moments of quiet emotional availability as in Nelly’s few, stirring allowances to speak truth to male privilege; it’s a performance that should rightly take Jones’ career to a new level. Meanwhile, Fiennes wisely plays Dickens as everything we thought we knew of him, but also as capable of cruelty and inscrutability (the film opens with his words “A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other�): his sexual desire is plain enough, but is this love? Nelly describes the tragedy of her life when she muses, “Whoever we’re with, we’re alone.� Kept as Dickens’ “secret,� then forever honoring that secret as she struggles to emerge from Dickens’ shadow, Ternan suffers until she can define herself on her own terms. Though a love story, “The Invisible Woman� spends most of its time in that shadow, while never leaving us in the dark. Rated R for some sexual content. One hour, 51 minutes. — Peter Canavese

K, how many of you have brought home an exquisite, blooming orchid from the supermarket (or received one as a gift), then watched it die after a few weeks? It’s not really your fault, says Dan Williamson, who raises orchids in his garage and on his Stanford West patio. A member of the Peninsula Orchid Society, Williamson will be bringing a few of his orchid specimens to display at the annual show, called “The Orchid Games!,� this weekend in Redwood City. Why the apparent lack of success for amateur growers? Most common orchids come potted in sphagnum moss, which tends to absorb and retain water, he said. “It’s easy to drown it in that,� Williamson said. “It’s much easier to kill through over-watering than under-watering.� After that initial blooming is past, it’s best to re-pot the orchid in bark so the roots “can breathe,�

he said. Then when watering, about once a week, let the water stream through the bark into the sink, making sure the roots don’t get soggy. And don’t water until the potting medium feels “crispy dry,� he added. For those who haven’t a clue

Williamson also grew this cymbidium hybrid (“Lovely Valley� and “Peace in the World�). about how to re-pot that orchid, a series of seminars are designed to bring everyone up to speed. Each talk is included in the price of admission. The talks include everything from general orchid culture to specifics on cymbidiums and beyond and tips for getting started (see schedule). Williamson grows most of his 100 plants in his garage, under shop lights that shine from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., with a mister constantly adding water that is distributed by a floor fan. Without the fan the wet leaves could acquire a fungus, making the leaves mottled. If that should happen, he advises waiting until the leaf is totally brown before removing it. Williamson encountered his first

orchids when he moved in with his wife-to-be. Soon he discovered a massive greenhouse in the Washington, D.C., area and was just intrigued by the possibilities. Today he raises cattleyas, the classic corsage orchid from the ’50s (he plans to enter one with green and white blossoms that last about two weeks); slipper orchids that bloom for about two months; and phalaenopsis that bloom for two to three months — all indoors. Outdoors on his patio he’s got oncidium maculatum from Mexico and cymbidiums. He doesn’t think the show judges would look at his cymbidium with its cream blooms with maroon on the lip because they haven’t opened completely flat, although he did point to the distinct color pattern that would earn points. Williamson is particularly proud of his stanhopea “Midnight Ramble,� which earned a First Class Certificate from the American Orchid Society at a show in 2013. He’d nurtured the plant with the fist-sized blooms since 2008 when it was just a baby. “It only blooms for three days. I got really lucky,� he said of the timing of the show. While many members of the Peninsula Orchid Society, which meets monthly in San Mateo, will be bringing plants to display, others grow enough to sell. There will be 10 professional vendors as well. Asked what drew him to orchids, Williamson said he was attracted by “that variable reward thing: Nothing’s happening, then there’s a new leaf, a blooming, then next to nothing. “They’re so different — with big roots, they don’t grow in dirt. They’re weird and different.� And then he asks the trick question: Which state has more orchid species, Hawaii or Maryland? The answer is definitely not Hawaii, he said. “There are orchids on every continent except Antarctica. There are native orchids everywhere,� he said, noting that one can spot slipper orchids along California’s coast. N Associate Editor Carol Blitzer can be emailed at cblitzer@ paweekly.com.

The Stanford womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team has had numerous opportunities to celebrate this season during a 17-1 start that includes a 6-0 mark in the Pac-12 Conference. The Cardinal hopes to improve upon those marks this weekend, hosting UCLA and USC.

A chance to pull away in the Pac-12 Stanford women host UCLA, USC and Cal in key games that could help determine conference title by Rick Eymer tanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next three games will go a long way in determining who will reign as the Pac-12 womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball champion this season. Most observers would take the fourth-ranked Cardinal, and for good reason. Stanford has won or shared 22 regular-season titles in the 27-year history of the conference. The Cardinal (6-0, 17-1) brings

a 16-game winning streak into Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8 p.m. game with visiting UCLA (4-3, 10-9), a game that will be televised on the Pac12 Networks. Following Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 80-56 victory over a nationally ranked Arizona State team in Tempe, Ariz., Stanford has outscored its Pac-12 opponents by an average of 26 points. Chiney Ogwumike, who scored 30 points in the win over the

Sun Devils, has failed to reach 20 points just three times in 18 games. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reached double figures in rebounding in 13 of the 18 games. The Bruins enter play with three wins in their past four games and will be seeking a third consecutive win for the first time this year. UCLA, which has also been hit by the injury bug, has had an interesting season. Its four conference wins have been by six or

fewer points and all three losses have been by two points. The Bruins feature senior forward Atonye Nyingifa and sophomore guard Nirra Fields. Nyingifa leads the team with an 18.0 scoring average and 9.1 rebounding average. Fields averages 17.6 points.

Pinewoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15-1 start is its best since 2001

by Ari Kaye he Pinewood girls have won five CIF Division V state basketball titles under veteran coach Doc Scheppler. The first came in 1999 with the most recent in 2011. During that time, however, the Panthers have won 15 of their first 16 games only three times. One of those squads is his current one, which is 15-1 overall following a 54-50 victory over West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) rival Eastside Prep on Tuesday night in Los Altos Hills. The victory left Pinewood alone in first place at 3-0 and equaled the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best start since 2001. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;01 team was an awesome machine,â&#x20AC;? said Scheppler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The

The 2014 Panthers are pretty good, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought this team could accomplish a lot of great things,â&#x20AC;? Scheppler said of his current group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can be even better with the continual development of our freshman and getting some consistency from our returners. This team can shoot with any of our past teams but, defensively, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not close to those previous teams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; individually or collectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just as athletic, but our principles and focus arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at a

He got the nail-biter on Tuesday as SHP junior James McLean sank the game-winning free throw with 1.5 seconds left to give the Gators a 47-46 West Bay Athletic League win over crosstown rival Menlo School. The Gators improved to 5-0 (10-4 overall) and took sole possession of first place, while the

Gators continue to roll SHP boys improve to 5-0 and maintain their lead in the WBAL race by Keith Peters he Sacred Heart Prep boys soccer team has won five straight West Bay Athletic League titles. Right now, the Gators are well on their way to a possible sixth straight crown. Sacred Heart Prep maintained its hold on first place in the WBAL race with a 6-1 win over visiting Eastside Prep on Wednesday. The Gators (5-0, 6-4-1) actually had to rally from a 1-0 deficit, but did so quickly as Ricky Grau, Andrew Segre and Frankie Hattler all scored in the first half, with Will Mishra providing two assists and Segre one. Grau, Sebi Surraco and Isaac Polkinhorne provided goals in the second half, with Segre assisting on Grauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal as the Gators won their fifth straight after opening the season 1-4-1. In San Jose, Menlo School remained in second place with a 2-0 victory over host Harker. The Knights (3-1-1, 5-3-2) were quickly ahead after a mistake from the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goalkeeper led to a tap-in goal from sophomore forward Will Chisholm within the first minute of play, his fifth league goal of the season. The Knights drew confidence

Knights saw their four-game win streak end and fell to 4-1 (5-10 overall). SHPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win streak increased to eight games as the Gators avenged a pair of league losses to the Knights last season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to take care of it at home,â&#x20AC;? Martinelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want any chance of winning your league you gotta win at home. That was a good win.â&#x20AC;? SHP senior guard Casey McDonald got the crowd going when he hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to end the first quarter, giving Sacred Heart a 15-12 lead. Menlo forward Wes Miller made back-to-back layups to end the first half and cut the Gatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead to 27-25 going into halftime. Miller had a solid game and finished 12 points. Knights guard Bobby Roth sank a free throw to end the third quarter, tying the game at 36 going into the fourth quarter. The senior was clutch at the free-thrown line (8 of 10) and led all scorers with 18 points.

left in the game. McLean, meanwhile, was big for the Gators all game long and came through again for Sacred Heart. With 1.5 seconds left on the clock, the junior went up for a 3-point shot and got fouled in the process. McLean made the first shot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; tying the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; missed the second, and then made his last shot to seal the win. He finished with 14 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of one of those moments youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always waiting for,â&#x20AC;? said McLean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to come in and be ready for it.

In other WBAL action Tuesday night, host Pinewood (4-1, 12-3) remained tied for second place with Menlo following a 47-33 win over Eastside Prep while Priory posted a 66-50 win over host Crystal Springs. Ryan Brice led Pinewood with 14 points with Nathan Beak adding 12. The Panthers held just a

five-point lead at halftime before outscoring Eastside Prep in the third period, 20-7. In Hillsborough, Priory senior Connor Bonfiglio poured in a career-high 30 points and sophomore Scotty Harris added 21 as the Panthers cruised to victory. With senior Keesean Johnson leading the way with 15 points, Palo Alto strengthened its hold on second place in the SCVAL De Anza Division race with a 6631 romp over visiting Saratoga on Wednesday night. Johnson also pulled down six rebounds while junior Kevin Mullin had 13 points and four steals for the Vikings (3-1, 8-7). Senior Noah Phillips finished with 12 points seven rounds and six assists as Paly won for the third time in its past four games. In the SCVAL El Camino Division, Gunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Russell poured in 28 points, but the Titans fell behind by 11 points at halftime and never were able to make up the difference while dropping a 6765 decision to host Fremont.

clean perimeter looks against an athletic Eastside Prep defense. His fears turned out to be largely unfounded, as Eastside Prep did not have the depth necessary to play an aggressive man-toman defense against Pinewood. Instead, Eastside Prep, which dressed six girls and played only five, opted to employ a 2-3 zone defense in order to conserve energy and stay out of foul trouble. Pinewood capitalized on that defensive alignment, draining 11 3-pointers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we move the ball and get good clean looks at our threes we are a hard team to beat,â&#x20AC;? Scheppler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hit the shots we needed to win the game.â&#x20AC;? While Pinewood moved into sole possession of first place, Eastside Prep (2-1, 10-7) fell into a tie for second place with Menlo School. Last season, Pinewood and Eastside Prep faced each other four times, with Eastside Prep winning the first three games, and Pinewood exacting its revenge in the NorCal Division V championship. Pinewoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience playing Eastside Prep last season gave Scheppler an idea for what type of defense might work in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We found something defensively that took advantage of their lack of a consistent three-point shooting attack,â&#x20AC;? Scheppler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them can shoot fairly well. But most of them, their strengths are they are athletic and can drive.â&#x20AC;? Junior Marissa Hing led Pinewood with 16 points, while junior Monique McDevitt chipped in 12 points on four second-half 3-pointers. A couple of freshmen also made big contributions for Pinewood, as Erin PoindexterMcHan poured in a career-high 11 points, while Akayla Hackson and Priya Sundaresan each chipped in four points off the bench. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of our freshman really stepped up,â&#x20AC;? Hing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually freshmen are a little nervous, but these guys come out and play hard. They contribute a lot.â&#x20AC;? The Eastside Prep scoring attack was led by junior Brije Byers and senior Alexus Simon, who contributed 22 and 11 points, respectively. The Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 6-foot-3 Destiny Graham, however, was limited to just two free throws as Pinewood sophomore Chloe Eackles did a fine job defensively while forcing Graham away from the basket. After a low-scoring third quarter, McDevitt opened up the fourth quarter by hitting two 3-pointers, to give Pinewood a seemingly insurmountable 46-30 lead. However, Eastside Prep began to claw its way back into the game, thriving off an aggressive fullcourt press that turned Pinewood turnovers into layups for Eastside Prep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought they attacked more in the fourth quarter. They became more aggressive. They are good when they do that,â&#x20AC;? Scheppler said of Eastside Prep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They

are very well-coached, very disciplined, and play hard.â&#x20AC;? With a little under three minutes to go, Byers converted a layup off a Pinewood turnover to cut the Pinewood lead to 49-46. Pinewood responded on its next possession, as Eackles secured an offensive rebound and passed out to Hing, who drilled an open 3-pointer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a real dagger three for us,â&#x20AC;? Scheppler said. The two teams will see each other again shortly, as they square off at Eastside Prep on Feb. 7. Scheppler had a number of areas he felt his team could improve on before the rematch against Eastside Prep, including taking better care of the ball, and playing with more composure down the stretch. Still, the Pinewood head coach was very pleased by his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big win at home,â&#x20AC;? Scheppler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to celebrate the win. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of our girls.â&#x20AC;? In Atherton, Menlo moved into a tie for second place in the WBAL Foothill Division with a 59-43 victory over host Sacred Heart Prep. The Knights improved to 2-1 (11-6 overall) while the Gators dropped to 1-2 (10-7). Menlo, which had struggled with its shooting from the floor in recent games, shot 45 percent -- including 41 percent (9 of 22) from 3-point range. Hannah Paye was 4 of 8 from long range (6 of 10 overall) and finished with a game-high 18 points. Fellow sophomore Sarah Rantz made five of her six shots and finished with 13 points while freshman Sammie Erisman had 10 points and eight assists. Those three combined to shoot 14 of 21 from the floor (66 percent). Olivia Pellarin grabbed eight rebounds and had three blocks for the Knights. In Hillsborough, Castillejaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best defensive effort in nearly two years resulted in a 52-15 win at Crystal Springs on Tuesday. Led by Paige Vermeeerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11 firstquarter points, the Gators took a 17-4 lead and never looked back as nine players scored. Vermeer finished with 17 points and seven steals while Maddie Tarr had 10 points and six steals. Yasmeen Afifi added seven points and 10 boards, and Abby Lowell pulled down six rebounds. Castilleja is 8-8 overall, 3-0 in WBAL Skyline division. In the PAL South Division, Menlo-Atherton snapped a threegame losing streak by defeating Capuchino, 68-65, on Wednesday night in San Bruno. With senior co-captain Emma Heath scoring six of her 22 points midway through the first quarter, the Bears jumped out to a 15-4 lead and it looked like they would cruise to an easy victory. But, the Mustangs kept coming back to close the lead to two near the end of end of the half. M-A pushed the lead to 15 at the end of third quarter with Junior forward Naomi Baer scoring five of her 17 points and freshman Post Ofa Sili scoring all 10 of her points. N

from their early lead and continued to threaten the Harker goal, with senior captain John Strong and junior midfielder Jackson Wagner both forcing good saves from the keeper. Harker created a few chances as the half wore on but Menlo junior goalie Alex Moore was up to the task, securing his third league shutout with a commanding display. Menlo pressured Harker repeatedly in the second half, looking for a second goal and the Knights were justly rewarded when junior midfielder Peter Rosston recovered a loose ball in front of the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; box and fired a dipping shot into the top corner of the Harker goal with under 10 minutes to play. In Los Altos Hills, host Pinewood fell to Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Academy, 4-1, while the Priory at Crystal Springs match was not reported. In the PAL Bay Division,

Menlo-Atherton rallied from a one-goal deficit at halftime and earned a 2-2 deadlock with host Burlingame. Jorge Lopez provided the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first goal on an assist from Mario Rodriguez. The two hooked up again in similar fashion in the second half with Lopez getting his second goal as the Bears moved to 3-1-1 in league (6-2-1 overall). In the SCVAL De Anza Division, Palo Alto stretched its winless streak to four matches following a 2-0 loss to host Fremont. The Vikings (1-2-2, 5-5-3) could not convert more than 10 shots on goal in the first half, including three one-on-ones with the Fremont keeper. Fremont scored off a corner kick with just minutes left in the first half. The second half continued with Paly having several scoring opportunities. A second Fremont goal was scored on a single player counter attack, taking on two defenders and hitting a deflected shot past the Paly keeper. In the SCVAL El Camino Divi-
