City workers to get 6.3 percent increase New contract with SEIU includes salary raises, health care reforms by Gennady Sheyner

T

he labor standoff between the City of Palo Alto and its largest employee union concluded this week when workers voted to accept an offer that raises salaries and aligns local pay with market rates. The agreement, which the City

Council is scheduled to approve on March 17, continues a trend in rising worker compensation, which has rebounded since the Great Recession. The contract applies to the 570 employees represented by the Service Employees International

Union, Local 521 — about half of the city’s work force. The city’s proposal includes a 4.5 percent raise for every employee over two years. This includes a 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment upon adoption of the contract and another 2.5 percent in the second year of the contract. In addition to the 4.5 percent raise, more than half of the SEIU workforce will see salary increases as part of the city’s effort to

align local salaries with those in comparable jurisdictions. As part of the realignment, 89 job classifications representing about 315 workers will see pay adjustments, according to the city. The agreement will also shift some of the risk in rising medical costs from the city to the workers. While the city currently pays 90 percent of the employees’ health care benefits (an amount that can go up significantly as medical pre-

miums rise), the new agreement would require the city to provide flat fixed-rate contributions. The new agreement will add about $7.6 million in expenses to the city over the two-year period, which is roughly a 6.3 percent increase in total compensation. About $2.7 million of that will come from the city’s General Fund, with the rest from various ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£ä®

Plans for Gunn High School’s “Central Building Project” include tearing down the existing music building and adding 14,000 square feet to the front of Spangenberg Theater.

EDUCATION

New project could transform entrance to Gunn School board gives go-ahead to $19 million ‘Central Building Project’

A

rchitects are sketching plans for Gunn High School that supporters say could give the school a “much more open and welcoming entrance to the campus.” The plan so far is to demolish the music building and construct a 14,000-square-foot addition onto the front of the adjacent Spangenberg Theater, according to a conceptual design presented to the Board of

by Chris Kenrick Education last week. A small portion of the addition would serve as a new lobby for Spangenberg, opening up to Gunn’s parking lot. But the bulk of the new space would be devoted to a student lounge and activities areas, student services, flexible classrooms, a copy center, storage areas and potential space for the school’s College and Career Center. Planners have dubbed it the

“Central Building Project.” The school board approved the conceptual design, authorized a proposed budget of $19.4 million and gave architects the green light to proceed with more detailed designs. Construction could begin in the fall of 2015 if all goes smoothly, school district officials estimated. ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£x®

Around Town

NAME THAT LIBRARY ... Palo Alto’s effort to renovate and expand its Main Library is proceeding apace. But the same cannot be said for a parallel effort to rename the Newell Road facility. The proposal to give the library a new name has been bouncing back and forth between the City Council and local boards since August 2012, when the Library Advisory Commission first took up the topic. The feeling was that the building’s current name is both vague and confusing, given that it’s neither the largest branch (that title goes to the Mitchell Park Library, which is undergoing its own reconstruction) nor the department’s administrative center (that honor belongs to the Downtown Library). And unlike College Terrace and the Downtown branches, the Main Library’s name makes no reference to the building’s location — which is why the library commission has settled on “Rinconada Library” as the new name, a decision it reconfirmed last month. The name, which comes from Spanish for “elbow” or “inside corner,” would link the building with the adjacent Rinconada Park. The council hasn’t been too crazy about the idea in the past, with some members liking it and others urging the commission to consider naming it after a famous Palo Altan. A final decision was set to be made this week, but after a marathon discussion of development-impact fees, council members kicked the discussion forward to a future meeting, possibly later this month. Meanwhile, several community members, past and present, have been chiming in. Diane Jennings, former library director, added her voice to naming the building Rinconada Library, which she said will “keep the pattern of using location names for all facilities, with the exception, of course, of the very special Children’s Library.” Local architect John Northway had a different take and recommended naming the branch The Birge Clark Library, after the architect who launched his local practice in 1922 and whose many Spanish Revival projects around town include the iconic downtown Post Office. (For the record: The Main Library was designed by Edward Durell Stone.)

SOLAR KUDOS ... Ever-green Palo Alto was acknowledged last week for its successful efforts

to streamline and improve its permitting process for installing residential and commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, receiving the national 2014 Best Solar Collaboration Award. “The city was able to implement a series of streaming program improvements, initiatives, online documentation, and fee reductions to expedite and simplify the entire PV review and inspection experience,” a city press release states. According to the city, the average number of days to get a permit for solar panels has dropped from 122 to three; the average number of times plans are returned with corrections has been halved and the number of solar applications received has shot up. “The City of Palo Alto deserves a tremendous amount of credit for listening to the needs of solar customers and making direct changes based on those needs,” stated Jefferson Silver of the solar company SolarCity.

MAY THE BEST APP WIN ... The City of Palo Alto’s 2014 Apps Challenge is off and running, with judging of the 74 entries currently underway. The challenge, which is being held as part of the 2nd National Day of Civic Hacking, called for ideas for smartphone apps that can help the city better engage with the community it serves. There are eight judges, from Mayor Nancy Shepherd to local startup founders. The city said 30 percent of entrants are younger than 18; that 30 percent includes members of Palo Alto High School’s Android Development Club, which submitted a number of app ideas as a group. One idea was for an anti-bike-theft application that lets users register and keep track of their bikes, as well as communicate with police if bikes are stolen. A press conference announcing the top 10 finalists will be held at City Hall, 250 Hamilton Ave., next Thursday, March 13, at 5:30 p.m. After that, the finalists will have to develop and showcase their apps at an April 27 event. The “grand finale” announcing the winners (first place will be awarded $3,500; second place, $1,000; and third, $500) will be held May 31 to coincide with the 2nd National Day of Civic Hacking. Free tickets are available for both the April and May events. For more information, go to www.hackpaloalto.org. N

Caltrain plan would fell trees, add substations by Gennady Sheyner

F

or years, Caltrain officials have been advocating a switch from diesel trains to electrified ones as the the best way to both help the environment and keep the popular but cash-strapped commuter service financially viable. But a new report analyzing the environmental impacts of electrification indicates that these benefits will come at a cost beyond the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $1.5 billion price tag. Specifically, it could result in more than 2,000 trees being removed and the addition of poles up to 50 feet high, safety walls built on existing bridges that cross the train corridor, and substations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including one in Palo Alto â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to support the electrification. The draft Environmental Impact Report, which the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board released Feb. 28, argues that Caltrainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-planned electrification is a critical project for increasing ridership and for giving the Peninsula an â&#x20AC;&#x153;environmentally friendly and reliable service.â&#x20AC;? More than a decade in the works, the previously stalled project sparked back to life in 2012, when the California High-Speed Rail Authority agreed to adopt a â&#x20AC;&#x153;blendedâ&#x20AC;? two-track system along the Peninsula in which the new high-speed trains would share electrified tracks with Caltrain. As part of a 2013 agreement between the agencies, the rail authority would pay for about half of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $1.5 billion costs, with the balance coming from Caltrain and other Bay Area transportation agencies. According to the new report, Caltrain plans to have its electri-

fied system in place by 2019, at which time about 75 percent of its train fleet would be electric and 25 percent would be diesel. Once the remaining diesel trains reach the end of their service life, they would be replaced with electric trains. Caltrain carried about 47,000 riders on a typical weekday in 2013, according to the report, a number that is projected to go up to 57,000 in 2020 and to 84,000 in 2040 even if electrification doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. With the project, the estimated ridership would be 69,000 in 2020 and 111,000 in 2040. The overall number of daily weekday trains would jump from the present level of 92 to 114. The environmental review notes that the project would significantly reduce traffic on regional roads by 235,000 â&#x20AC;&#x153;vehicle miles traveledâ&#x20AC;? in 2020 and by 619,000 in 2040. Yet the benefits will come with costs. The overhead power lines would be supported by poles with heights ranging from 30 to 50 feet, according to the report. The poles would stand on either side of the tracks, about 10 to 12 feet from the centerline, and would be spaced about 200 feet from each other. The electric infrastructure would also require installation of one switching station, which controls how power is fed within the system; 10 traction power substations, which convert electricity to the voltage trains use; and six paralleling stations, which boost power along the system. One paralleling station would be in Palo Alto, either near Green-

*iÂ&#x2DC;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x192;Ă&#x2022;Â?>Ă&#x160; Â&#x153;Ă&#x20AC;Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x2C6;`Â&#x153;Ă&#x20AC;Ă&#x160;Â&#x153;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x160;*Â&#x153;Ă&#x153;iĂ&#x20AC;Ă&#x192;Ă&#x160;Ă&#x2022;Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;Â&#x153;Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x17E;

Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Environmental Impact Report analyzes the costs and benefits of long-planned electrification

Under Caltrainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan, Palo Alto would host a paralleling station, which would support the power supply distribution and would include one or two autotransformer units like the one pictured here. meadow Way or just south of Page Mill Road, according to the report. But, the report notes, such a station would have some visual impact. Located in a compound that has typical dimensions of 40 feet wide and 80 feet long, the station could be partially screened by trees. If located by Greenmeadow, â&#x20AC;&#x153;roadway users and residents may have limited viewsâ&#x20AC;? of the site where there are gaps in vegetation. The environmental analysis noted that the Greenmeadow Way option would require some existing trees to be removed, causing â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantâ&#x20AC;? aesthetic impact. Caltrain is proposing to compensate by planting new vegetation along Alma between the roadway and the paralleling station. A Page Mill paralleling station would also benefit from screening provided by trees on the Alma Street side as well as from the new four-story Park Plaza building on the other side, according to the report. In addition to the electric infrastructure, Caltrain plans to build safety barriers on dozens of existing bridges to prohibit access to the Caltrain corridor and prevent objects from being thrown off the bridges, according to the

document. These barriers would typically be about 6.5 feet tall and about 40 feet long. Each barrier would feature black, red and white signage that reads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Danger. Live Wire.â&#x20AC;? The 47 bridges identified in the report include one bridge in Palo Alto (two new walls would be built on the San Antonio Road overpass) and six in Mountain View (Shoreline Boulevard overpass; Stevens Creek pedestrian crossing; Whisman Road; Route 85; and Route 237, both eastbound and westbound). While the new infrastructure would be going up, hundreds and possibly thousands of trees would be coming down. The report estimates that about 2,220 trees would be removed for the project and another 3,616 pruned. This includes the removal of 188 trees in Menlo Park, 177 trees in Palo Alto and 284 in Mountain View, which is second only to Sunnyvaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 497. The report notes that Caltrain is exempt from local regulations regarding tree removal because it is a federally regulated rail carrier and thus benefits from an exemption in the Public Utilities Code. Still, it lays out a strategy to mitigate the loss of trees, including

locating poles and alignments to â&#x20AC;&#x153;minimize tree removal and pruningâ&#x20AC;? and removing trees â&#x20AC;&#x153;only as necessary to provide safety clearance.â&#x20AC;? The project would include the creation of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tree Avoidance, Minimization and Replacement Plan,â&#x20AC;? which would be developed in consultation with cities and a certified arborist and which would consider best practices for replacing and protecting trees.

Special-education family sues Palo Alto school district In appeal of state ruling, family seeks in-home schooling for autistic son

T

he family of a specialeducation student filed a lawsuit against the Palo Alto Unified School District in federal court this week, alleging that the district violated federal law when it declined to provide in-home education for their child. The family of â&#x20AC;&#x153;S.C.,â&#x20AC;? a 12-year-old boy with autism, moved to Palo Alto a year ago and sought the same type of athome educational program for their son as he had received in

his previous school district, according to the lawsuit. Palo Alto district officials disagreed, offering the child a classroom placement and saying it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;comparable.â&#x20AC;? When the family appealed, a hearing officer from the California Office of Administrative Hearing sided with the school district in a decision issued Dec. 31, 2013. The federal lawsuit, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court in San Jose, is an appeal

by Chris Kenrick of that ruling. The student, who the lawsuit said â&#x20AC;&#x153;lacks the ability to communicate verbally and has a history of severe allergic reactions to food,â&#x20AC;? also has difficulty with fine and visual motor skills and sensory processing behavior. The familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer, Brian Sciacca, cites case law suggesting that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;stay-putâ&#x20AC;? provision â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning the same type of educational placement as before â&#x20AC;&#x201D; should apply when a special-education student transfers to a new

district and a dispute arises about the most appropriate educational placement in the new district. In this case, the family is seeking â&#x20AC;&#x153;continued provision of an in-home educational program designed to meet his unique educational needs arising from his disability, including 40 hours a week of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy, two hours per week of individual speech and language services and two hours per week of individual occupational therapy services.â&#x20AC;?

Asked to comment on the lawsuit, the district said in a statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Palo Alto Unified School District is committed to provide educational programs that help each student achieve their unique potential. The Special Education Division believes that the recommendations they have made and that were confirmed by the judge in this process are appropriate. We will continue to work with this family to provide an appropriate educational setting for this student.â&#x20AC;? N

Bargain Box, other California Avenue tenants concerned about eviction

T

he recent sales of a number of family-held commercial buildings in the California Avenue business district are worrying longtime tenants of Palo Alto’s so-called “second downtown.” In the wake of purchases of 341347 California Ave., 392 California, and the Cordelia Building, which has several addresses, including 2443, 2445 and 2447 Ash St., shop employees say they are in limbo, unsure whether rent increases or evictions are coming their way. This week, sources at The Bargain Box and Avenue Florist said they expect to leave the avenue. The Bargain Box, which raises money for the nonprofit Children’s Health Council, could be evicted by August, according to sources. Avenue Florist workers have known for some time they will leave, but a date has not been set, an employee said. Tenants and other nearby business owners said the flavor of California Avenue is sure to change building by building and block by block, as developers woo more upscale tenants who will cater to the city’s planned vision for California Avenue: high-tech startups, smaller apartments and higher density structures near the Caltrain station. The building at 341-347 S. California Ave., where The Bargain Box, the florist and several small offices on the second floor reside, is slated in the short term for exteri-

by Sue Dremann or improvements, City of Palo Alto Senior Planner Russ Reich said. The building’s new owners, 341 Cal Partners, LLC, have applied to the Architectural Review Board to refurbish the building exterior, which will include new awnings and paint. But interior work, which was not included in the current permit application, is planned, Reich said. “I believe the interior will be gutted and redone, but the exterior will have little change,” Reich told the Weekly in an email on Wednesday. Reich did not know what the owners’ time frame might be for completing the work, he said. Upstairs tenant Palo Alto Violins owner Lawrence Haussler has been in the building for 23 years. He has a 90-day kick-out notice in his lease, but he hasn’t heard if he will be asked to leave. The building was sold in the last month or two, and the new owner came through his shop recently, but Haussler didn’t get any answers, he said. “One guy smiles. The other people walk through. They asked questions like, ‘Oh, you have a nice unit. How high is the roof?’ “I said, ‘I really want to stay. Why don’t you just raise my rent?’ They just smiled,” he said. Haussler said he and other merchants fear the California Avenue way of life will change considerably in the next few years, and others said they expect when their leases are up,

they won’t be asked to renew. Haussler predicted that aging landlords, the inheritance of properties by offspring and the lure of money will cause many to sell out to big developers. “The elders who owned the buildings are passing away or selling out to entrepreneurs. It’s very worrying. The entire California Avenue subculture is disappearing. The flavor of California Avenue will go away,” he said. Haussler estimated that his rent would double if he moved to a comparable space. “It’s going to be hard for me to stay in this district. They just want computers and places where they can put 25 employees sitting around with their laptops,” he said. Stalwart Tony Montooth, who has operated Antonio’s Nut House for 41 years, said he doesn’t know what the future holds. The building he rents is adjacent to 341-347 California. “If they start tearing the building down next to me, that is going to affect my business,” he said. There are rumors of plans to raze buildings on the entire block and to build one massive development reaching from the mid-block Starbucks to the edge of Birch Street, he said. The building he leases is not under the same ownership as 341347 California, and his landlords have told him they don’t plan to sell. But a new contract he is negotiating for another six years

Rising rents, new ownership pushing out longtime businesses

Tenants at 341-347 California Ave., including The Bargain Box, say they are anticipating eviction notices or rising rents. contains provisions that have him wondering, he said. “They put in that if they sell the building, I have 180 days to get out. They told me they have no intention of selling, then why is it in the lease that they might?” he said. Montooth said he wants to know what the future will bring, since he planned to add improvements to Antonio’s, including a new floor to replace the worn-out old one “where the peanut shells have done their harm.” He wants to add a patio that would coincide with the city’s new streetscaping plans. But he doesn’t want to make the investment and later learn he’ll be evicted, he said. Mark Conroe, representative of 341 Cal Partners, LLC, and Ash Street Green Partners, LLC, two real-estate entities with significant holdings in the California Avenue district, declined to comment regarding plans for its recently purchased buildings. However, since Ash Street Green Partners purchased the building last year, the ground floor retail at the Ash Street location has recently vacated. Doling

C. Ashmore, CPA, moved out in November at the end of its lease, and The Other One Hair Styling planned to move out when its lease was up at the end of March. Randall Ashmore declined to comment on his reasons for leaving. But nearby business owners who knew Maureen Forbes, owner of The Other One, said she had decided to retire in part because of rent increases. Forbes died at the shop on Tuesday morning of natural causes, according to the Santa Clara County Coroner. Tenants of other landlords along the avenue are also facing evictions. Longtime, 35-year tenants Cho’s Mandarin Dim Sum and Ron Vierra Farmer’s Insurance, which has been there since 1969, were given 60-day notices on Jan. 16, to make way for building renovations at 213 and 217 California. Montooth was philosophical about California Avenue’s transition. “Things change — you know things are going to change,” he said. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@ paweekly.com.

Minority Palo Alto graduates reflect on the good and the bad While crediting schools with high quality, many struggled with expectations

T

he power of teachers and coaches — and of early, clear communications about college requirements — emerged in “exit interviews” with AfricanAmerican and Latino graduates of Gunn and Palo Alto high schools that were recently released by the Palo Alto school district. About 15 minority graduates from the Class of 2011 reflected on their school experiences in interviews conducted by educational consultant Milton Reynolds in December 2011. The district provided redacted quotations from the interviews to the Weekly. Though most students rated the quality of education they received in Palo Alto as very high, many indicated they had struggled with feeling stereotyped and held to low expectations by some staff members. One graduate referred to hav-

ing felt “pressure to dispel myths of low expectations,” saying there was “at least one teacher each year who didn’t really believe or know why I was in AP courses or the goals I had.” Many expressed sensitivity to the “vibe” they got from different teachers, positive or negative. “There was a teacher that never gave up on me at Paly,” one wrote. “She pushed me to graduate and helped me get back into school, talked to other teachers for me, had my back and pushed me.” Said another: “Teachers helped me out even when I got kicked out and helped me even though I kept wanting to give up.” But another said: “At times I felt that some of the faculty belittled me. This gave me inward motivation to prove them wrong. It can be negative, but it depends on how you take it.”

by Chris Kenrick Another graduate said: “I like teachers who know me and can relate to me. I just don’t like when teachers give you a vibe and judge you.” Another said: “They underestimated me, and they should have put the word out about college earlier.” One graduate referred to the wide variety in teaching styles. “Every teacher has a different style,” the person said. “It was difficult to be in many classes with so many teaching styles. “I had to retake a few classes. Second semester senior year was really hard, and I ended up with two Ds. These two Ds were with teachers that knew how hard I was working. Those teachers wrote letters of recommendations for me to continue to go to the four-year class. I had the class, and they continued to motivate me.” Asked how it felt to be an Afri-

can-American or Latino student in a high-achieving and primarily white and Asian district, graduates indicated they had struggled. “It’s a welcoming environment. You feel like a fish out of water. But everyone is super nice and no one puts it in your face.” Said another, “I always felt I was behind everyone else ... that I had to work a lot harder to keep up with everyone else. Even since kindergarten. Through all of elementary school. I had to take special classes to learn how to speak English, and in middle school I still felt behind and in high school I still felt behind. “In high school I really had to work hard to become a competitive student and to have any chance to go to college ... to have a competitive application. But I always had the feeling I was behind everyone else.”

Many said they wished they’d been coached earlier and more clearly about what it takes to get into a four-year college, particularly about the University of California prerequisites known as the “a-g requirements.” “Not all students get counseled about the a-g requirements,” said one. Said another: “I never had an idea of college until I hit my senior year. Nobody even mentioned college to me. When these people are talking about a-g requirements, I don’t even know what they were talking about.” Many credited special programs aimed at helping minority students get to college with helping them reach their goals.

Palo Alto pushes forward with hotel-tax increase City Council agrees to pursue ballot measure to fund infrastructure fixes

P

alo Alto voters this November will have the chance to raise the city’s hotel-tax rate by 2 percent, a move that city officials say would go a long way toward funding upgrades to Palo Alto’s age-worn infrastructure. On Monday night, the City Council unanimously agreed to put on the ballot a measure that, if approved, would produce revenue that could be leveraged to fund various bike projects, at least one new parking garage and replacement of two fire stations that were built more than half a century ago. Even without the tax measure, which the council supported after extensive debate, the city’s infrastructure landscape is already far brighter than it was in 2011, when a specially appointed Infrastructure Blue Ribbon Commission did a full-scale analysis of the city’s needs and came up with a set of funding recommendations. These included a bond to pay for a new police building, raising the city’s capital expenditures and increasing the sales tax. Since then, local sales- and hotel-tax revenues have rebounded in a big way, with funding of street repairs more than doubling and the city’s once emaciated infrastructure reserve swelling to about $8 million. The council had also determined that the most critical infrastructure project of all — a new public-safety building — can be pursued with

existing funds, a factor that allows the city to use the bond-measure revenue for items that may be less urgent but more popular. Larry Klein, chair of the council’s Infrastructure Committee, was one of several council members to point to the differences between 2011 and today. “The city’s financial position is better, we’ve got a surplus and, in addition, we have Stanford money,” Klein said, referring to the $14.9

‘We’re within grasp of getting this done. If we go down to 2 percent, we put that at risk.’ —Greg Scharff, Palo Alto city councilman million the city is set to receive for infrastructure as part of a development agreement that allowed a dramatic expansion of the Stanford University Medical Center. Though council members all agreed to put the hotel-tax increase on the ballot, they had an extensive debate over whether to pursue a 2 or 3 percent increase to the city’s existing rate of 12 percent. Ultimately, the smaller increase prevailed by a single vote, with Klein joining Vice Mayor Liz Kniss and council members Marc Berman, Pat Burt and Karen Holman in supporting it.

The funds, coupled with construction of several new hotels that are expected to come online this year, are expected to bring in $4.6 million in additional annual revenue, which would be leveraged to get $64.4 million for infrastructure projects. Though the exact projects to be funded are yet to be determined, the menu of options includes a bike bridge over U.S. Highway 101, various new bike boulevards, new garages in downtown and possibly on California Avenue and replacement of fire stations near Rinconada and Mitchell parks. Of the four council members who supported a 3 percent hoteltax increase, Councilman Greg Scharff offered the most passionate argument. When combined with expected revenue from new hotels, the 3 percent hike could be leveraged to obtain about $75 million in funding. The city, Scharff said, has gone from a situation where making a dent in the infrastructure backlog seemed “virtually impossible” to one where the city can actually take care of almost all of its infrastructure needs. By approving it, the council would be sending the community a strong message that it plans to do just that. He also cited the rising construction costs, as evidenced by the steadily growing budget for the streetscape project on California Avenue, which is set to commence this month. “We’re within grasp of getting

School board seeks comment on supe search Search firms to be interviewed Monday in search for new Palo Alto Unified superintendent

T

he Palo Alto Board of Education will seek public comment at a meeting Monday, March 10, as it launches a search to replace Superintendent Kevin Skelly, who has announced he will resign effective June 30. Community members may email comments in advance to searchfirm@pausd.org or testify in person at the meeting, at which three search firms will present their bids for the search contract. In a timetable aimed at having a new superintendent in place by July 1, the school

board said it hopes to hire a search firm on March 10, hold “focus groups and community input forums” between March 17 and March 28 and present an update on the search process at the regular March 25 board meeting. Details on the yet-to-bescheduled “community input forums” will be provided in emails to parents and staff and also posted on the “Superintendent Search Page” of the district’s website, the board said in a statement Wednesday. Monday’s meeting begins at 9 a.m. in Conference Room A

of the school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave. Public comment will be invited at the end of the meeting, at approximately 12:45 p.m., following board interviews of the search firms Leadership Associates at 9:15 a.m.; Ray and Associates at 10:30 a.m.; and Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates at 11:45 a.m. The district has directed queries for more information to Kathleen Ruegsegger, executive assistant to Skelly, at 650-329-3737 or kruegsegger@ pausd.org.

Like all Palo Alto hotels, the Epiphany Hotel, set to open in downtown this month, would be subject to a 14 percent transientoccupancy tax if voters pass a measure in November. this done,” Scharff said, referring to the closing of the infrastructure backlog. “If we go down to 2 percent, we put that at risk.” Five of his colleagues disagreed and said they weren’t comfortable with making Palo Alto’s hotel-tax rate one of the highest in the state. While San Francisco and Oakland have hotel-tax rates of 14 percent, most of Palo Alto’s neighbors have lower rates. Mountain View has a rate of 10 percent, while Menlo Park, East Palo Alto and Redwood City all have 12 percent. Burt said going to 15 percent would make the city too much of an outlier. Holman said the move would help perpetuate an image of Palo Alto as a place that’s a little too precious and make it seem like the city is bragging about how special it is. “I don’t think this reflects well on the image of Palo Alto,” Holman said. Vice Mayor Liz Kniss agreed and also urged against making the city’s rate so far above those of its neighbors. “There are times when we think we’re just so special,” Kniss said. “And I think that diminishes who we are and I think in many ways it makes us look almost as if we’re somewhat callous in how we go about treating people who are visiting us either as tourists or for business.” Kniss initially supported Councilman Marc Berman���s plan to explore raising the city’s sales tax by 1/8 cent instead of going forward with the hotel-tax increase. That proposal quickly fizzled when all seven of their colleagues voted against it.

Berman said he agreed with the goal of fixing up the infrastructure and the council’s list of priority projects, but advocated more research on the sales tax. The city’s polling of the two items showed that the hotel-tax would be far more popular (support level for a measure to raise hotel taxes by 2 percent was as high as 77 percent) than the sales tax (where support ranged between 51 and 57 percent, depending on how the question was framed). The polling, however, was focused on a 1/4-cent increase and indicated that support could rise to above 60 percent if the city pursued a 1/8-cent hike. Berman argued that because the polls didn’t really concentrate on the smaller increase, the city should study this option further. He said the city is “going in the right direction” with its list of projects, but was less certain than his colleagues about whether the hotel tax is the way to go. Council members are all marching toward the same goal line, he said, though he wasn’t sure “if we’re calling the right play.” After his idea to explore the salestax increase was rejected, he proposed revising the recommendation from the Infrastructure Committee from a 3 percent hotel-tax increase to a 2 percent increase. After the council voted 5 to 4 to support the smaller bump, members unanimously approved moving forward with the ballot measure. The council also directed its Infrastructure Committee to revisit the list of projects and adjust it based on the revenues the city is expected to get from the increase in the hotel-tax rate. N

According to the city, bringing employee salaries in line with the market median will cost the city roughly as much as providing the cost-of-living adjustments. The agreement also allows several positions to receive “additional adjustments to address unique recruitment and retention challenges,” according to the city. The city’s prior contract with SEIU expired in early December, and two sides had been negotiating since last fall.

was dominated by police officers and firefighters with sizable overtime sums (in 2011, 12 out of 15 top earners were public-safety workers), in 2012 it was mostly top managers and department heads who topped the list. The trend held in 2013, with City Manager James Keene and Assistant City Manager Pamela Antil topping the earners list with total compensations of $264,689 and $238,433, respectively. They were followed by Utilities Director Valerie Fong ($226,884), Chief Financial Officer Lalo Perez ($225,622) and Police Captain Robert Beacom ($222,947). In a particularly dramatic departure from the past, only two members of the Fire Department were among the city’s 20 highest earners. Only Fire Chief Eric Nickel, who received $199,122 in total wages in 2013, was ranked in the top 10 (he was 10th). As recently as 2011, eight of the top 20 wage earners in the city were firefighters, including six of the top 12. In most cases, overtime made up a large share of the total wages in public safety (in several cases more than $100,000). The city’s overtime-expenditure drop partially resulted from the city’s abolishing in 2012 the minimum-staffing provision in the firefighter union’s contract. The clause, which had required the city to have at least 29 firefighters on duty at all times, had helped drive up overtime costs.

At the same time, even though employees’ salaries have gen-

There were eight officials whose salaries were above that threshold in 2013, seven fewer than in 2012 and 14 fewer than in 2011.

Several utilities and public works employees argued that the city is no longer able to attract and retain workers due to insufficient pay. Since then, the two sides held more meetings and negotiated the deal that was ratified by workers Tuesday, according to the union’s announcement. The union described the agreement in a statement as one that “provides workers with some relief after years of cuts.” The SEIU was the first worker group to undergo benefit cuts in 2009, which included employee contributions for pensions and health care. Since then, the city has reached similar deals with other employee groups. “The contract provides city

workers with some immediate relief, but I doubt the wage requirements and cost-of-living adjustments will be enough to reverse Palo Alto’s current staffing and retention crisis,” Margaret Adkins, chair of SEIU, Local 521, said in a statement. “But, it is a step in the right direction.” City Manager James Keene said in a statement: “We are pleased that the SEIU membership has voted to accept this proposal, which offers a fair and balanced deal that seeks to ensure we can retain our excellent employees, where we are seeing heightened marketplace competition, especially in the utilities and enterprise sector, while also controlling health care costs in the future.” N Staff Writer Gennady Sheyner can be emailed at gsheyner@ paweekly.com.

ing the speed of the water. The water board recommended an alternative that would create a bypass channel to divert flood waters from the creek to the “ball fields near the upstream end of the proposed flood wall, continue on down along the southern boundary of the golf course, and discharge to the tidal marsh at the southern end of the (Palo Alto) airport runway.” It also asks the creek authority to consider raising the levee on the East Palo Alto side of the creek to provide more protection to the community. It also requested a design alternative called a “conveyance” that would split water flows and reduce water speed. “We recognize the significance of the project to the community and the JPA’s urgency in securing all permits for the project and proceeding to construction,” the water board’s Executive Officer Bruce Wolfe wrote in the letter. “This letter is intended to provide guidance to the JPA on how best to move forward to secure permits from the Regional Water Board and other regulatory agencies. Further, the Regional Water Board is committed to working with the JPA on coordinating and streamlining the permitting process.” Pat Burt, a Palo Alto City Councilman who serves on the creek authority board, called the letters from the water board “disconcerting.” He noted that the project includes creating 15 acres of environmentally helpful wetlands. “We have a project that is beneficial to the water quality in the net, and they want to fundamentally change it — as we are ready to start construction — in ways that aren’t feasible,” Burt said. Burt noted that many of the issues that the water board has brought up in its rejection letter have already been thoroughly vetted during the Environmental Impact Report process and through engineering designs. The bypass option, for instance, has already been explored and rejected. So has the conveyance system, which Burt said engineers considered eight years ago. And the levee on the East Palo Alto side was intentionally designed slightly lower than the one on the Palo Alto side because engineers believed the le-

vee on the Palo Alto side would settle within the next few years. Burt noted that East Palo Alto, which is a member of the creek authority, was a full participant in coming up with a design and a strong supporter of the project. “This is a very large social justice issue for East Palo Alto,” Burt told the Weekly. “There is not just a risk of property damage but also a significant risk to life in East Palo Alto. And we have been able to put together a very good plan and come up with funding that can address that. We’re ready to start construction, and we’re now seeing a bunch of roadblocks.” Burt also noted that the water board’s proposal to use Palo Alto Airport land for the flood-control project has already been explored by the city attorney’s office. It fizzled for several reasons. For one, the city doesn’t yet fully own the airport (it is in the process of taking it over from Santa Clara County). In addition, the Federal Aviation Administration wouldn’t allow this use of airport land, he said. Burt said Palo Alto City Manager James Keene discussed the water board’s concerns with Wolfe on Monday. City and creek authority staff plan to have more discussions with the water board in the coming days. “We certainly hope that the issues that they perceive to be problems are ones we can address promptly, because we think they’re things that are readily answerable,” he said. By law, the water board was required to reach a decision within a year, a deadline that will pass on March 12. The creek authority has been pursuing the permit from the water board for the past year, a process that has already involved design changes aimed at protecting creek habitat, including new marsh mounds that provide refuge space to marsh species. In January, creek authority’s Executive Director Len Materman said to the Palo Alto Parks and Recreation Commission that he believed the water board was using the permitting process “as an avenue for them to acquire commitments by the City of Palo Alto and other cities on topics unrelated to the creek project. “Some of them are justifiable and some are perplexing,” Materman said at the Jan. 21 meeting.

City to Castilleja: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Apply for new permitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be an incredible gathering place and central feature for this campus,â&#x20AC;? said school business official Bob Golton, who is overseeing major construction throughout the school district under the $378-million â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strong Schoolsâ&#x20AC;? bond passed by voters in 2008. Gunn Principal Katya Villalobos said she hopes funds can be found to make the addition two stories, which, she said, would â&#x20AC;&#x153;give us the most flexibility and potential for growth for the future.â&#x20AC;? Flexibility aside, school board member Heidi Emberling wanted more specificity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this is going to be a twostory, central campus showpiece, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it going to be exactly?â&#x20AC;? Emberling asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like a wide variety of lots of different possibilities, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to understand the umbrella theme or vision for it.â&#x20AC;? Villalobos said the first-floor, student activities areas would face out onto the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quad. On the second floor, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it depends on how we assign the classrooms. If, for example, the small learning community had an interdisciplinary project, they could sign up for the classroom like they would a com-

City planners are urging Castilleja School to apply for an amended use permit as a way to resolve neighborhood traffic concerns around the school. The school, which currently exceeds its city-imposed enrollment cap of 415 by 33 students, has presented a plan to gradually reduce its headcount as well as to curb traffic through use of school shuttles and other policies. In a Feb. 28 letter to the school, city planner Steven Turner agreed to Castillejaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short-term plan to reduce enrollment by four students this fall and by an additional six in fall 2015. But in the longer term, â&#x20AC;&#x153;future enrollment caps will be determined by the outcome of a process to amend the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conditional use permit,â&#x20AC;? Turner said. Castilleja said it welcomed the news. Last July, the school announced its intention to seek a new use permit for as many as 515 students â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 100 more than is permitted under the existing permit. At that time, Head of School Nanci Kauffman also disclosed that Castillejaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current enrollment of 448 is in violation of the existing permit, which was negotiated in 2000. The city imposed a $300,000 fine for the violation and ordered the school to cut back on car traffic and to reduce attendance â&#x20AC;&#x153;through natural attrition and voluntary measures.â&#x20AC;? In a statement responding to Turnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feb. 28 letter, Castilleja said it would continue with its traffic-reduction programs, including shuttles, the use of which aims to reduce traffic to a level equivalent to a student population of 385.

Ex-symphony head charged with theft The former executive director of the Peninsula Symphony Association has been accused of embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from the decades-old Los Altos community orchestra. Stephen Jay Carlton, a 45-year-old Novato resident, is facing multiple felony charges, including grand theft, embezzlement, forgery, identity theft and tax evasion. He faces up to 18 years in prison if he is convicted. He was arrested late last week. Carlton came under suspicion in September 2013 after one of the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board members was alerted that the 65-year-old nonprofitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funds were unusually low, according to a press release issued by the Santa Clara County District Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. Carlton resigned shortly after board members brought the issue to the Los Altos Police Department, the press release said. One of the symphonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endowments dropped from $227,000 to $375; another was depleted by nearly $200,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; going from $195,000 to $395. In a subsequent investigation, it was shown that Carlton had used association checks to pay himself, the press release details. He is accused of forging the signatures of two board members on a number of the checks, taking out an unauthorized $25,000 loan in the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and using the money to pay down personal debts.

puter lab.â&#x20AC;? She said teachers have been asking for flexible collaboration space that can accommodate more than 35 or 40 students. Also, Villalobos said, the College and Career center could be moved from its current location in a portable to the more centrally located new building. Assistant Principal Tom Jacoubowsky said psychological counseling services for students also could be located in the new space. Architect Erwin Lee said with the new design, the entrance to Spangenberg will be easier for visitors to find. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that the music building is coming down is going to open up this whole space and make it really visible from the parking lot,â&#x20AC;? construction manager Tom Hodges said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus, the whole new entry and drop-off area, and how that opens up into the quad area, is really going to transform the feel of this campus. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something you see very easily now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a much more open and welcoming entrance to the campus.â&#x20AC;? Conceptual plans so far have been developed by the Gunn staff as well as the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities task force, which includes parents.

Two men who allegedly robbed small markets and convenience stores while disguised in wolf and skeleton masks pleaded not guilty in San Mateo Superior Court on Feb. 28. A third man implicated in the robbery pleaded no contest on March 3 to a commercial burglary stemming from another incident, according to the San Mateo County District Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. Joshua Faoa, 24, and Joachim Piliote Maka, 23, of East Palo Alto were arrested for a string of robberies that took place in October 2013, including the Oct. 15 armed robbery of a 7-Eleven store at 708 Colorado Ave. in Palo Alto. A shotgun-wielding robber punched a store clerk in the face during that incident, according to Palo Alto police. Faoa and Maka allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven store on Rollins Road in Burlingame on Oct. 17, using a shotgun and pistol and wearing wolf and skeleton masks. They allegedly threatened to shoot the store clerk and escaped with $45. On Oct. 20, the DAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office said, they robbed the Oakwood Market in East Palo Alto while wearing the same clothing and masks. According to the DA, Maka fired his shotgun into a store refrigerator and escaped with $3,600. A search warrant of Makaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Faoaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment on Capitol Avenue in East Palo Alto found both masks, similar clothing allegedly worn by the robbers and shotgun shells. Makaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DNA was allegedly found inside one of the masks, and Google searches for the areas where the robberies occurred were found on their cell phones, according to the DAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. A third man, Apolosio Piutou Tupa, 27, also of East Palo Alto, was arrested along with Faoa and Maka on Oct. 25 after Redwood City police recognized them from a wanted bulletin sent out by the Palo Alto Police Department.

DRE# 01854880 | CA BAR# 255996

Robert S. (Bob) Carey passed away in Portola Valley, peacefully at home after a short illness. Bob was a beloved husband of more than 66 years to his wife, Myrtle (Myrt) Ciprian Carey. He was a loving father and mentor to his five children (and their spouses), Robert (Vance) of Watsonville, Kent (Theresa) of Palo Alto, Dawn (Stephen Schaniel) of Los Gatos, Paul (Natasha)of Mountain View and Glen (Lynn) of Palo Alto. Bob was much loved by his 10 grandchildren and two step-granchildren, Kyle (Kelly), Kenneth, Colleen, Kate, Stephanie Schaniel, Stacie Schaniel, Clay, Kristen, Philip, Elizabeth, Nick Tuosto (Sarah) and Jessica Tuosto. He was a devoted brother to Dorothy Howe. Bob was born in Kansas City, MO and raised in Chicago, IL, where he met Myrt in their early teens. Myrt and Bob married in November 1947 and moved to Ann Arbor, MI, where in 1952, he received Bachelor of Science degrees in Metallurgical and Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan. Bob moved from Michigan to California to work for Union Oil as a Refinery Corrosion Engineer shortly after graduation. In 1958, he became involved in the aerospace industry at Aerojet, first in San Ramon and then in Southern California to participate in the Space Race. When Voyager didn’t see life on Mars, Bob turned his engineering talents to the medical research instruments industry, working at Beckman Instruments in Palo Alto as Chief Metallurgical Engineer and moving his family to Ladera in Portola Valley. Bob had a passion for reading, playing racquetball and golf, traveling the world, watching Giants baseball and attending college football games. He also enjoyed attending his children and grandchildren’s many activities, including numerous sports, performances and plays. He was Head Umpire for Alpine Little League in the late 1960s. Bob was an Elk from 1976 through 2004. After retiring in 1991 from Beckman, he spent many pleasant Tuesdays as a Golf Marshall at the Stanford Golf Course until last year. Foremost, Bob was a loving, lifelong companion to Myrt. His legacy is that of a mentor with a strong moral compass, who led by example with warmth and grace. A memorial service for Bob will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 15, at Ladera Community Church, 3300 Alpine Road, Portola Valley. Donations in his honor may be made to The Canary Foundation (local cancer research) online at www.canaryfoundation.org, or by check to Ladera Community Church Endowment Fund, 3300 Alpine Rd., Portola Valley, CA 94028.

Genelle V. Simoni May 30, 1918 – March 1, 2014 Beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Genelle V. Simoni (formerly Genelle Kelley) passed away at age 95 at the Marysville Care and Rehab Center on Saturday, March 1, 2014. She was a long-time resident of Palo Alto and San Jose before moving to the Brown’s Valley, CA home of her daughter Rosemary “Bunny” Kelley in 2005. Genelle was born in New Richland, Minnesota on May 30, 1918 to Christian Virnig and Rose Arendt Virnig, the third of four children including brothers Richard, Mark, and James. She attended St. Catherine University in St. Paul and the University of Minnesota, where she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta. In 1942 she married naval officer Robert Emmett Kelley and moved to the navy base in Bremerton, Washington at the onset of WWII. They soon transferred to San Francisco where she worked at Naval Hospital as a phlebotomist. In 1955 the couple moved to Palo Alto to accommodate a growing family of six children, Robert, Maureen, Daniel, Mark, Douglas, and Rosemary. After the passing of her husband in 1967, Genelle became President of R. E. Kelley and Company, which later merged with Alexander and Alexander Insurance of San Francisco. She married Leo A. Simoni in 1971 and moved to the foothills overlooking San Jose. Active in the community, Genelle was an early leader of the Community Association for the Retarded (now Abilities United), and a supporter of the Allied Arts Guild, the American Heart Association, the Goodwill, and TheatreWorks, where she never missed a performance. She was an accomplished pianist and a passionate bridge player with many groups throughout the South Bay. In later life she enjoyed working as a sales representative and advisor to young mothers at Kiddie World Baby Furniture. The supportive matriarch of an ever-growing family, Genelle was predeceased by her son Daniel in 2008. She is survived by her children Robert, Mark, Doug, and Bunny Kelley, and Maureen Seeley; her daughters-in-law Evelyn Shiro, Ann Butterworth, and Linda Elvin; her grandchildren Todd Seeley, Sarah Woodland, and Ethan, Adrienne, Brett, and Kyla Kelley; and her great grandchildren Elizabeth and Laurelynn Seeley and Greer and Cecily Woodland. She counted her niece Nan Ryan and her husband Tom among her closest friends. A woman of strength, humor, and integrity, Genelle was beloved by all. The family is planning a private memorial.

Willard G. Wyman Willard (Bill) Wyman, a resident of La Honda and a friend to many in the Stanford University and Palo Alto communities, died on Feb. 25 at Stanford Hospital as a result of lung cancer. He was born on Nov. 13, 1930, in China. The son of a career officer in the United States Army, he grew up on a series of cavalry posts in Virginia, Kansas, Texas, Washington state and the nation’s capital. He attended St. Paul’s in Baltimore, Md., where he was an athlete and lacrosse player. At 17, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and was appointed as a cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He completed one year there, playing football briefly for backfield coach Vince Lombardi. He later

studied at Colby College, graduating in 1956. After, he returned to the Peninsula in 1957 to begin a career as an educator on the Peninsula, teaching English and serving as head football and swimming coach at Menlo School. In 1962, he enrolled as a graduate student at Stanford, from where he received his doctoral degree in 1969. He also served as associate dean of students and later as special assistant to then President Richard W. Lyman for the academic year 1969-70. From 1971 to 1975, he was dean of students and associate professor of English at his alma mater, Colby College in Maine. In 1976, he returned to California to become headmaster of The Thacher School in Ojai and served there until his retirement in 1992. Under his leadership, the school opened its doors to women and its precarious fiscal situation was reversed. Immediately after, he moved to La Honda into a ranch house on Skyline Ridge. There, Bill started a new career as an author. He published two novels, “High Country” and “Blue Heaven,” receiving Spur Awards for the first from the Western Writers of America. He is survived by his son Willard G. Wyman III and wife Michelle and their three children (Caitlin, Casey and Molly) of Santa Barbara; his son Jedediah Fowler Wyman of Corvallis, Ore., and his mother Jane Fowler Wyman of Palo Alto; and by Barbara Saxon of La Honda and Wilmington, Del., his partner for eight years.

Paly students dance the night away in the gym, elaborately decorated with a constructed backdrop, lights, trees and tables for the Senior Party held on June 12, 1958, from 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.

From ‘jolly ups’ to World War II meetings to ‘donkey basketball’ to sleepovers Old gym holds personal, communal memories from eight decades of Palo Alto life by Chris Kenrick

T

he indelible smells, sights and sounds of the old boys gym stir powerful memories, personal and communal, for generations of Palo Alto High School students. Sports pedigree aside, the gym’s parallel history as a venue for non-athletic events reflects the life and times of a growing community over eight decades: dances called “nickel crawls” and “jolly ups” in the 1920s and ‘30s, World War II “block warden” meetings in the 1940s, “donkey basketball” in the 1950s and ‘60s — and countless sock hops, proms, assemblies, concerts, ceremonies and private milestones large and small. The 85-year-old gym, with its signature painted wooden bleachers, will be demolished later this year — precise date still unspeci-

fied — to make way for a new, state-of-the art athletic center. All the memories and history, athletic and otherwise, will be honored in a free public farewell celebration Sunday afternoon, March 16, at Paly. “It’s a memorial service and a celebration for all the education of boys and girls that went on here,” said Jane Gee, a Paly parent who is organizing the farewell event. It is co-sponsored by the school and the school district, the Paly Alumni Association, the Paly Sports Boosters, the Palo Alto Historical Association and the Palo Alto Weekly. “We want people to leave their woes at home and just come enjoy the afternoon. “This event is about sharing stories so that the kids in 2014 can understand what it was like here

Alto from possible World War II air raids. “My mother was a block warden in Palo Alto, and they had to coordinate with all the neighbors as far as lighting and sound every night, so areas were black,” Wentz said. “My dad used to go to his National Guard meetings at the gym, and Mom and I would go with him because she was scared to stay home. Most people who live in Palo Alto now don’t even know that type of thing, fortunately.” In the late 1940s and early 1950s Wentz said, the gym was open on weekends for kids to play pickup basketball. Around the same time, Wentz recalled, a traveling basketball team called the Colored Ghosts — presenting “one of the most colorful exhibitions of court work in the business today,” according to a 1939 report in the Lodi-News Sentinel — drew sellout crowds to the Paly gym. Wentz went on to become a Paly varsity basketball player in the early 1950s. Pranksters from Paly’s Class of 1955 brought in a crane under cover of darkness and hoisted a Ford Model A to the roof of the gym, Wentz said. “In the morning, there was a Model A setting on top of the gym,” he said. “These things sound stupid but I tell you, they happened.” The 1950s and 1960s brought the unusual practice of “donkey basketball” to the Paly gym — games with players mounted on donkeys. While a popular school fundraiser in those decades, donkey basketball has declined under pressure from animal rights groups. It is still played in some rural areas. Don McPhail, a 1958 Paly graduate, recalls watching singer Joan Baez perform in the gym. Meri Cox Gyves of the Class of 1969 remembers the band Santana played in the gym that year for the grad night party. A Paly graduate from the 1960s reported having his “first and last make-out session with a girl ... way up in those dark bleachers. It was so traumatic, and she scared me so bad, it actually helped turn me gay,” the graduate wrote. “That was back in ‘67. Old now, but still gay.” ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÓ{®

in 1939,” Gee said. If history is any guide, the event will be well attended: More than 2,500 people turned out for the dedication ceremony for the “new” gym when it opened in 1929 — seven years before the Palo Alto Unified School District even came into existence. Noted Palo Alto architect Birge Clark — designer of the downtown Post Office, Lucie Stern Community Center and Stanford University’s Lou Henry and Herbert Hoover House — had been hired in 1928 to plan “a complete and adequate gymnasium for boys of the school.” Clark prepared sketches for what he described in a letter to trustees as a “proposed new boys’ gymnasium and basketball pavilion in its relation to the probable development of the high school when its enrollment is two thousand pupils.” The architect was thinking big — at the time, Paly’s enrollment was little more than 600. But unsure of available funding, the school asked Clark to break down his cost estimates “so that the trustees may have all the data necessary for determining at a later meeting which, if any portion or portions might or might not be built from available or from augmented funds.” Early Paly coach Howard “Hod” Ray pleaded with trustees to fund a complete facility. “The old idea of letting Physical Education take what it could get is passé,” he argued in a 1927 letter to Palo Alto school trustees. “We

are a part of the school program as much as are Chemistry, Physics, etc.” Ray also mentioned strong demand by community members for use of school facilities. “I think it is a mighty fine thing to promote good spirit between the town and the high school, and with a new gym and more room we could do it,” he said. Architect Clark warned trustees in his letter that with the $40,000 or $42,000 likely available, “It will be possible to get only the shell of the main building, a building 116 feet wide and 125 feet long.” The gymnasium floor itself would be completed, he said, but a finished lobby, shower rooms and offices would have to be deferred and the main locker wing not built at all. At its dedication on Jan. 11, 1929, the $38,000 gym remained unfinished, with an 84-foot by 50-foot basketball court and “a large space on two sides” left open for bleachers, according to a Jan. 11, 1929, report in the Palo Alto Times. “The building is not yet fully completed, as dressing rooms are yet to be installed.” Harry Haehl, board chair of what was known as Palo Alto Union High School, thanked taxpayers at the dedication ceremony while apologizing for the incomplete project. “He explained that since Palo Alto has no large tax-paying industries, it can raise only a relatively very small amount, in proportion to the size of the school, in taxes,” the Times reported. “Being hampered in this way, Mr. Haehl asserted, the board of education has been unable to spare the funds necessary for the completion of the building.” The Friday night gym dedication ended with a basketball game between traditional rivals Palo Alto and Sequoia High School in Redwood City. Lois Santos, a 1939 graduate of Paly, recently recalled in an interview with the Weekly that girls wore gardenias to dances held in the gym in its early days. Leon Wentz, a 76-year-old Menlo Park resident, remembers playing in the gym as a 5-year-old while his parents attended National Guard and block-warden meetings there, discussing things like night blackouts to protect Palo

sentiment we developed together, we were able to take the program to new heights and set a new standard for the teams that played after us in that gym. And because of our time together there, we continue to share a bond with one another that will last us all a lifetime.â&#x20AC;? It was 13 years later that another young player by the name of Jeremy Lin helped lead another Palo Alto basketball team that was steeped in those same values. Once again, an underdog Paly team rose up to claim the CIF Division II state title with a 5147 shocker over heavily favored Mater Dei. The Vikings went 32-1 that season, establishing a school record for most games won in a single season. Lin went on to star at Harvard University and now plays in the NBA for the Houston Rockets. Peter Diepenbrock coached the Vikings to that 2006 state title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, having coached around 100 games in the gym, I have lots of very special memories,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, my most special memories are the Gunn games and the playoff games. That is when the gym was full and had a classic high school atmosphere.â&#x20AC;? Diepenbrock said two games stood out for him, his first game against rival Gunn and his last

(NorCal) playoff game against Laguna Creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That first Gunn game was insane! It was the 1997-98 season, and we were in different leagues. We played them just the one time. We were up most of the game. Then at the end there was two seconds left and we were up 1 and shooting two free throws. We missed them both and, on the second miss, we fouled them going for the rebound! Then they came down and missed the free throw and then they tipped in the miss from 6 feet away as the buzzer went off to win by 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The roar from the Gunn crowd at that instant was the loudest I had ever heard at a basketball game in

complishments stretch beyond that. The Paly girls made some history, as well, in the sport. Under the guidance of coach Scott Peters, his 2011 team captured the SCVAL De Anza Division title with a 12-0 record (its first unbeaten record in that league) and won its first-ever Central Coast Section crown in program history with a victory â&#x20AC;&#x201D; appropriately enough â&#x20AC;&#x201D; over rival Gunn in the Division I finals. Basketball, of course, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only sport played in the gym. Volleyball and wrestling had their moments, too. Two of the best wrestlers in U.S. history left their mark at Paly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dave and Mark Schultz. Dave

my life. Just totally deafening!â&#x20AC;? Diepenbrockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other memory involved the NorCal semifinal in 2006 against Laguna Creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gym was totally packed full,â&#x20AC;? Diepenbrock recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were up 8 starting the fourth quarter. We were held scoreless for the first seven minutes and they tied it up. Then Jeremy (Lin) hit a clutch 3, as he tended to do, to win the game and the crowd went completely bonkers! I have always said that we would not have beaten that team on any other court. We needed every bit of that gym and that crowd to get that win.â&#x20AC;? While the Palo Alto boys won more than 1,000 basketball games over the life of their gym, the ac-

won the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever state championship in 1977 and Mark followed a year later with one of his own. The two went on to win gold medals at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. The girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volleyball program also brought two state championships to the school, in 2010 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;11. The team went a combined 77-4 over those two seasons while achieving unparalleled success in program history. Kimmy Whitson was the starting setter both seasons and recalled what a special time that was and what the old gym meant to the athletes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my favorite memories is winning the NorCal title

— Palo Alto Weekly Staff have hung from the rafters and clung to the walls for so many years. The old gym has seen better days, and it’s time for a new one.

The family of commercial real estate developer Richard Peery, a Paly graduate whose children and grandchildren also have attended Paly, is revealed as the anonymous donor. “It’s not really about sports or athletics per se,” son Dave Peery said. “This is much more about providing balance in the lives of our busy youth.” The last home wrestling match is held in the gym.

Marriette Ring, of Paly’s Class of 1933, had a first date with her husband-to-be, Sequoia High School student Leon Wentz, in 1932 — surely one of countless memorable first dates in the old gym. The father of a girls volleyball player recalled team sleepovers held in the gym — with parents watching from their cars outside the gym to guard against party crashing by football players. Tanuj Chopra, a member of the Class of 1995 and a basketball player, recalls staying for hours after practice ended to shoot by himself. “There’s something about the gym, something about the meditation of shooting and being in that rotation with the ball and the ball going through the net, especially in that gym,” he said. For Chopra, the son of Indian immigrants, the gym also served

as an introduction to American culture. He believes he and his younger brother, also a basketball player, might have been the first Indian-American basketball players at Paly. “For us it was a real entry point into the culture and the country,” Chopra said. “It was a big part of shaping who we were.” More than once the gym’s hard edges have been unrecognizably transformed into a tropical paradise or a forest, or made plain for a memorial service — as recently as 2008 for Travis Brewer, lovingly remembered as an upbeat, sports-minded member of Paly’s class of 2011. “We have many fond memories of the Paly gym, but the one that will be with us forever will be the memorial service for our son,” his mother, Becky Brewer, wrote. “He loved everything about Paly sports. It meant so much to our family that we could celebrate his life at the gym with all of the people that he loved and loved him.” N

Assessing the options when a parent is in decline by Chris Kenrick

A

n aging, widowed parent becomes cognitively impaired, and adult children, scattered around the country or the globe, ponder their options. Not comprehending the extent of their parent’s decline until they’re in town for a visit, adult children often show up in the office of geriatric social worker Paula Wolfson in emergency mode. “Most people don’t know anything about these topics until they

With hugs, referrals and stretches, geriatric social worker tries to ease transitions happen to us,” said Wolfson, manager of Avenidas Care Partners, the agency’s social work department. “But if you tend not to plan ahead, it becomes high drama and high stress.” Wolfson sometimes finds herself facilitating the family discussion. Should they sell the house? Bring in caregivers? Place the

person in a facility? Relocate the parent to their area and try to care for them while working and caring for children? “The ones who come in already in a state of crisis have a harder time because they’re functioning with really high levels of stress and anxiety,” she said. She is partial to Louis Pasteur’s observation that “chance favors

the prepared mind.” To that end, Avenidas holds regular education conferences on senior housing, finances and care-giving — including a conference on senior housing options scheduled for Saturday, March 22. But developments frequently catch families off guard, and Wolfson said she’s never sure what kind of situation will walk

through her door. “Sometimes they just need help with how to talk to their 80-yearold father who was a general in the military or head of a corporation or a noted professor and is used to being in total control,” she said. “The conversation might be about the fact that they’re not driving safely any more, or that they should not have their evening cocktail with their evening medication. These are the types of conversations that children find it very awkward to bring up with their own parents.” In other cases, initial conversations bring related issues to the surface: depression, alcoholism, financial abuse or problems with hoarding. “We are constantly learning from our clients that one needs to take care of self first: rest, eat and sleep well, see their physicians, exercise, find community, stay connected and cultivate a positive attitude,” she said. “I keep a heating pad, tissues, cough drops and hugs available. Sometimes I physically stretch with clients as we talk.” Wolfson keeps a stockpile of information on senior housing in the area, as well as an online “caregiver directory” that can identify care facilities based on criteria such as languages spoken by staff or whether the facility accepts Medicaid/MediCal or welcomes “people who wander.” Families often are surprised to learn that their health insurance will not pay for long-term care or housing, Wolfson said. “They’ve worked hard and paid taxes for most of their lives and somehow they think the government is going to pay for their long-term care needs,” she said. “A lot of people are not familiar with the concept of private pay versus some sort of public funding for their aging expenses. This still surprises me, but it happens.” Other clients are not in the midst of any emergency, and just need help “reframing” their lives after a major transition such as loss of a spouse. “What I’m discovering about some of my single older women clients is that, for the first time in their lives, they’re kind of masters of their own fate — not constrained by husbands or children or work schedules and rather free to create a life they love. “Some of them come in here and just want to talk about that,

REAL ESTATE TRENDS

Early Spring Selling Season

6iÀœ˜ˆV>Ê7iLiÀ

Paula Wolfson, a licensed clinical social worker and head of Avenidas Care Partners, consults with a client in her office in early March. Wolfson regularly meets with individuals and families on care options for elderly relatives, or for those with physical or mental impairments.

Traditionally early spring has been the best time to sell a home. However over the last few years we have seen new listings coming on the market as early as January and scoring high prices. Last year ended with a historically low inventory and many buyers were unable to find a home. Therefore many buyers are ready to buy now. If you’re considering selling your home in 2014, now is the time to get ready. 95% of our local buyers start their home search on the Internet. Experian Marketing Services released its monthly most visited real estate website rankings for web traffic in January. The results are eye popping. Web traffic to real estate websites was up 25% from December. If you’re considering selling and your home is not yet on the market, then every day you’re missing out on thousands of potential buyers view-

ing your home. Over the past month mortgage rates have declined and rates are currently trending back toward 4%. This is a significant development for buyers and could save buyers hundreds of dollars on their monthly payment. For many buyers, there is a sense of urgency to buy now before prices go higher or interest rates return to more historically normal levels. What does that means to the seller? It means that the earlier you list your home the more interested buyers you have on your property, the more offers you have and the more you home is going to sell at. Buyers are ready. Are you? The spring selling season is already in full swing. If you’re planning to sell your home in 2014, you need to be ready now. Don’t miss out on the perfect well qualified buyer because you waited too long.

I offer complimentary staging when I list your home. Contact me at Alain Pinel Realtors (650) 384-5392 or send me an email at scullen@apr.com. Follow my blog at samiacullen.com

what their values are and how they want to be in the world. I have an 80-year-old doing yoga and a 92-year-old writing a book, so it’s not our typical world of leisure retirement any more.” Other women find themselves caring for frail family members — sometimes even more than one. “When we last met, my husband had just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and it was helpful talking with you,” a client recently wrote to Wolfson. “It’s been about six months now, and I could sure use a bit of your time to talk through some of my newest challenges with him.” Isolation and loneliness are the greatest risk factors for seniors, said Wolfson, who finds herself linking clients with caregiver support groups, the daily La Comida lunch group and the other array of classes and programming at Avenidas. More than 1,000 calls a year come in on Avenidas’ information and assistance line, mostly related to care-giving, housing, transportation, medical crises and relationship issues, Wolfson said. Gerontologist Anabel Pelham will headline Avenidas’ March 22 housing conference, which will cover senior housing options including aging in one’s own home, de-cluttering and tips for adjusting to the first month in a new housing community. Registration is $40 for Avenidas members and $45 for nonmembers through March 14 and $50 after that date. To register go to http://tinyurl.com/m3yomqq or call Avenidas at 650-289-5400.

ust about everyone orders the profoundly beautiful tea leaf salad at Rangoon Ruby, downtown Palo Altoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upscale Burmese hot spot. It tastes as good as it looks. The only issue is to gauge how much salad you or your party can eat, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to leave room for other dishes and this one is not good as a leftover. Tea leaf salad quickly degrades into a sad, limp memory. Rangoon Rubyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gleaming beachhead is fortified by the young and well-heeled. It is nothing like Rangoon, the plain Jane Chinese-Burmese restaurant that used to be on Bryant Street. Rangoon Ruby is pretty much the opposite of the other Burmese restaurant in town, Green Elephant Gourmet, which caters to a neighborhood and family clientele. Located in South Palo Alto, Green Elephant is quieter and cheaper, and features many Chinese dishes. Under high ceilings and swirling Medusa-like light fixtures, Rangoon Ruby bustles with people enjoying the scene, the bright flavors and the extensive cocktail menu. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to make a reservation. In addition to whimsical tiki drinks there are microbrews and imports on draft, changing seasonally. Among them recently was Hanger 24 Orange Wheat ($6), which paired perfectly with the menuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vibrant herbs and spices. Curiously, the wine list is less fertile. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overloaded with heavy-duty chardonnays and cabernets.

Rangoon Ruby features fiery chicken tofu, chicken breast wok-fried with tofu, string beans, bell pepper and basil in a sweet-and-spicy sauce. But back to the signature tea leaf salad ($14), served in pieces and assembled for you at the table. As with many dishes at Rangoon Ruby, tea leaf salad can be made vegetarian. The standard version involves dried shrimp, Burmese tea leaves, fried garlic, yellow beans, chopped lettuce, jalapeno peppers, sesame seeds and peanuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This special salad will awaken your taste buds,â&#x20AC;? the menu promises. Indeed. Once awakened, your taste buds may also enjoy fiery pork tofu ($17). While our neighbors scarfed up their tofu one recent evening, we were having buyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; remorse about our monk hingar ($13), pureed catfish chowder. It was just dull. Another Burmese tradition, the noodle dish nan gyi dok ($14), is served in components like the salad and then mixed table-side. Rice noodles are slathered in coconut chicken sauce and amplified by yellow bean powder, cilantro and fried onion. Slices of hard-boiled egg add creaminess, wontons crispiness. Burma draws culinary influences from its neighbors. Tastes of Thailand, China and India figure prominently, as do seafood, freshwater fish, rice and noodles. Dishes arrived at a good pace, not all at once. Rangoon Rubyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s servers make a strong effort to please â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not a given when dining out. Our server recommended basil chili beef ($18), which I

liked but my companion judged not spicy enough. Rangoon Ruby is loud and sleek. Scenic photo collages climb the walls, white-clothed tables nestle close together, and stylish tableware includes square bowls and food-friendly forks with long tines. Vegetarian and vegan options abound on the wide-ranging menu. Rangoon Ruby opened in June 2012 in the former Cafe Baklava. A sister ship opened last May in San Carlos. The chefs are veterans of Burma Superstar, the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot little chain. Owner John Lee, born and raised in Burma, honed his hospitality skills while working at San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fairmont Hotel. He minds the details, right down to the mouthwash dispenser in the restrooms.

Safe Routes to School for Nixon Elementary School Review and comment on Draft Walk and Roll Maps and Route Improvements

by Daryl Savage

40-YEAR-OLD DOWNTOWN YOGA CENTER FORCED OUT ... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the final namaste for Palo Altoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest yoga studio. The California Yoga Center, 541 Cowper St., has lost its lease and will close on June 30, 2014. The 800-square-foot yoga studio has been in its current location for nearly 40 years, but the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner has decided to remodel. The studio is considered a Palo Alto institution by some. It has gone through a few name changes, but the current name, California Yoga Center (CYC), has stuck for eight years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a way, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been expecting this, but it still comes as a shock,â&#x20AC;? said Larry Hatlett, a popular yoga instructor who looks far younger than his 69 years. Hatlett has been a part of the center since 1975 and estimates that he has taught more than 10,000 classes in the Palo Alto studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a surge in the popularity of yoga over the years. There was a time in the 1970s when we were the only yoga

center between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Now there are thousands,â&#x20AC;? he said. The yoga center has developed a dedicated following, with an estimated student population of 300. Hatlett is trying to find a new space for his own students, many of whom have been with him for 20 years, but admits, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This could easily be the end. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about money.â&#x20AC;? One of Hatlettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s devotees is Sunnyvale resident Bob Roberts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started here because of a back injury 36 years ago, and I never left,â&#x20AC;? Roberts said. Although there is a second CYC in Mountain View, Hatlett, who currently teaches five classes, said there are no times available for him in the Mountain View facility. Looking back, Hatlett said his mother came to Palo Alto in 1920. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have lived in this area my whole life. But this is now a place for the wealthy. A city that has only hightech offices, financial institutions, restaurants and chain stores is a city without charm. Clearly, Palo Alto is headed there,â&#x20AC;? he said.

FOURTH CHASE BANK TO OPEN IN PALO ALTO ... Chase Bank apparently loves Palo Alto. It recently opened its third branch in this town last month in the renovated Edgewood Plaza and has scheduled an April opening for its fourth in Town & Country Village. The other two are on Middlefield Road in Midtown and Hamilton Street downtown. N

Seeing gardens through the eyes of an appreciator by Jack McKinnon

W

hat is a garden anyway? Why do gardens make so much difference in our lives and why do we fall in love, raise our children and grow old together in them so much better than if we live our whole lives indoors? Gardens provide us with several things. They give us work to do that is different than any other work. They give us discovery and wonder. And they give us unparalleled beauty. We feel different in gardens than anywhere else in our lives. We feel relaxed on a warm spring day. We feel stimulated by the chores we need to do. We feel pride in sharing with someone special a garden they have never seen before. And we feel empowered when we learn a new plant or discover something horticultural that we didn’t know before. I can’t take you all out into a garden and show you these things nor would you want me to. They are there for you to experience and learn and share. What I can do is to point in directions that may be new or different in your garden or future gardens you may visit. I hope you visit many gardens. Here are the tips: 1. Note new growth. Often buds open and leaves emerge and we see them only when

Garden Tips they are mature. Notice flower buds forming and tendrils on vines, looking at how they face the sun or wrap around a nearby branch. 2. Look closely at the soil around the base of plants. See where it is in relation to the trunk of shrubs and trees and even groundcovers. I see so many plants die because this relationship is out of balance. Remember that the flare of the roots is where the soil should start, not up the trunk. Rake it back with your fingers or a trowel if it is too high. 3. Look at lawns (either yours or others) and see what is growing there. Often there are many more species of plants than grass. 4. Stroll a few new gardens each month. Visit community gardens, public gardens and parks with simply strolling and looking as the goal. This may seem odd in this day and age; that’s why I am suggesting it. 5. Challenge yourself to learn a plant and its application that nobody you know can identify. There are thousands. Try Half Moon Bay Nursery on Highway 92 on the way to Half Moon Bay. 6. Grow a miniature garden alongside your big garden — sort of like your own secret garden. Escape to it to challenge yourself and your imagination. Maybe even write a fantasy story involving your secret garden. 7. Grow something edible that you don’t usually buy in the market. Do some research

on what that might be and how to use it. I just finished reading Michael Pollan’s new book “Cooked” and am now braising as a new way to cook. I am also making sauerkraut and will take up baking again, this time with herbs I grow myself for a savory nuance. 8. Count petals, anthers and florets as a habit. One of the keys to plant identification is closely looking at flowers and noticing what is unique. Start looking at flowers in a different way. 9. Grow some water plants, or visit a water garden, pond or stream and observe the life that is created with aquatic plants. Hakone gardens in Saratoga has an amazing pond. 10. Try growing a few species of air plants. Tillandsia is in the Bromeliaceae family and lives on the surrounding air. Make an arrangement of some in the low branches of a tree or on a fence. Spritz with water once in a while and they will grow for years with little additional attention. Good gardening.

Real Estate Matters Seven best improvements to make your home sell faster by David Barca

I

f last year was any indication, 2014 should be another exceptional year for home sellers across the Bay Area. In the Palo Alto market, 2013 was an amazingly strong year, with the median sales price averaging $2.1 million. In Menlo Park, the median sales price averaged $1.6 million. Inventory was slim in both cities throughout the year as eager buyers jumped on the region’s most desirable homes. A home’s price, size, floor plan, neighborhood and school district are clearly the primary factors by which a buyer will judge its attractiveness. Still, it’s important not to lose sight of smaller details that you can control: Some home-improvement projects will go a long way to helping your property stand out above others. These seven upgrades have the most influence on buyers — and can help your home sell more quickly. 1. High-end kitchen appliances. One trend we’ve noticed across our region is that buyers gravitate toward homes with modern kitchens. In particular, stainless-steel cooktops, dishwashers and refrigerators from high-end manufacturers are quite popular these days. Pacific Union’s real-estate professionals in Silicon Valley also report that gas stoves with at least six burners are a must-have kitchen feature for many home shoppers.

2. Natural stone countertops. While you’re renovating your kitchen, you might also take a look at upgrading the countertops with a stone-like material. Although granite remains a popular and costeffective countertop option, limestone and marble are among the most desirable materials today and will help imbue kitchens with a sense of luxury. 3. Fine-tuned details. Although updating faucets, light fixtures and cabinet knobs in kitchens and bathrooms might slip below the radar of some home sellers, a local interior designer has assured me that such renovations definitely add value. 4. Lighter, brighter floors. In terms of replacing worn-out hardwood floors, our real-estate professionals have noted that some sellers are bypassing traditional, darker stains in favor of lighter and brighter shades of oak, walnut and pecan. In an even newer trend, some homeowners are opting for matte flooring materials, albeit those with a natural appearance. 5. A garage that’s more than a warehouse. While buyers will likely pay the most attention to the living spaces of homes they are touring, the condition of a property’s garage is becoming an increasingly important concern. Many people will use a garage for its intended purpose, but others may employ the space as an extra room for living, working or recreational activities. As such, you might consider installing a coated, lightly textured surface on top of the standard concrete floor. Finishing a garage with Sheetrock is yet another improvement that can make the $n/a 3420 Cowper St. replace gas line from meter to water heater, $n/a 460 Hawthorne Ave. replace gas line from meter to back of house, $n/a 311 Hawthorne Ave. Unit 311 remodel kitchen, associated with seismic upgrade, $n/a

space feel more livable. Custom-built garage cabinetry can also add resale value to a home, particularly if the cabinets are built on the walls to help maximize space. 6. Improved curb appeal and landscaping. Hiring a landscape architect to reinvigorate your home’s yard could also help you receive the best offer when the time comes to sell. If your neighbors’ homes are quite close by, you might be able to create a sense of greater privacy by adding plants or trees that act as screens. Our real-estate professionals in Silicon Valley have also seen increasing use of manicured, artificial turf rather than grass. Such turf-based lawns don’t require as much maintenance as grass, and they will keep an aesthetically pleasing appearance year-round — even when there’s a drought. 7. A new coat of paint. Last but not least, remember that giving your home a new paint job is another way to add value to your property and offers perhaps the biggest bang for your improvement buck. If you don’t have any experience with interior design, you might choose to retain the services of a professional to assist you with color selection. Knowing what appeals to homebuyers in the current local real-estate market can go a long way to helping you decide what improvements will carry the most weight and net you the largest offer. And the more money you make on your current home, the more options you’ll have when you buy your next.

CCS BASKETBALL

Seven teams are playing for five titles

MARQUESS MILESTONE . . . When Stanford opens a three-game nonconference baseball series with visiting Kansas this weekend, Cardinal coach Mark Marquess will start working on his next milestone. Marquess reached one big one — his 1,500th career victory — on Tuesday as Stanford romped past host California, 11-1, in a nonconference game. Palo Alto resident Alex Blandino contributed a lot in less than half a game. The Stanford infielder collected three hits and drove in a career-high four runs to help Marquess reach his milestone after the Cardinal was swept last weekend in three games at Vanderbilt. Stanford freshman starter Tyler Thorne (2-0) tossed a three-hitter over five innings, walking two and striking out four. Thorne reduced his ERA to 1.88 after six appearances, and his second start.

ndependence High in San Jose will be the center of the basketball world for local high school teams on Saturday as four Central Coast Section championships will be on the line. For those who don’t mind sitting in a gym for some eight hours, it’s like one-stop shopping. Starting at 2 p.m., the Menlo School and Castilleja girls will play for the Division IV crown. Two hours later, the Sacred Heart Prep boys will take on Harker in the Division IV finals. At 6 p.m., the girls’ Division I title will be decided between Gunn and North Salinas, followed by the boys’ Division I championship between Menlo-Atherton and Bellarmine. Setting the stage for that marathon day, the Pinewood and Priory boys will meet in the Division V finals on Friday at Notre Dame De Namur University in Belmont at 6 p.m. A total of seven local teams will be playing for section basketball titles this weekend, with only the winners earning a berth into next week’s CIF Northern California playoffs that will include the Eastside Prep and Pinewood girls. They earned automatic berths by playing in the CCS Open Division this week. While the Gunn girls played only 15 regular-season basketball games this season, the numbers game evidently hasn’t worked against the Titans. For the second straight year, Gunn defeated Piedmont Hills in the CCS Division I semifinals. That means for the fourth straight season, the Titans find themselves in the section championship game — hoping to win their third straight crown. Wednesday’s 39-27 victory over Piedmont Hills set

Gunn junior Meghan Mahoney (34) had 11 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in a 3927 win over Piedmont Hills in a CCS Division I semifinal.

Menlo, SHP take rivalry to the finals

Gunn’s Lee pins down her career with state title

by Ari Kaye oming into its Central Coast Section Division III semifinal matchup against Priory, Menlo School’s Lizzie Lacy hadn’t started a single game at goalkeeper for the Knights, as the junior had been the backup to sophomore standout Schuyler TilneyVolk all season long. On the other hand, midfielder Sienna Stritter had been one of the star performers for Menlo all year, compiling two goals and an assistant in Menlo’s quarterfinal victory against Terra Nova last Saturday. On Wednesday, both Lacy and Stritter proved instrumental to the top-seeded Knights’ winning effort as Stritter scored two second-half goals and Lacy pitched a shutout in the net, to help Menlo defeat the No. 12 Panthers, 2-0, and advance to the section championship game. “Second half we started connecting on passes, being first to the ball and controlling the ball.

by Keith Peters unn High senior Cadence Lee doesn’t know what the future will bring in wrestling, whether she’ll continue training in the offseason or compete in college. She does, however, know one thing for sure. “For right now,” she said, “I’m going to rest for a couple weeks and enjoy the victory.” The 17-year-old Lee actually had five victories at the 2014 CIF State Girls Wrestling Championships on Friday and Saturday at the Visalia Convention Center. Each triumph led her to the finals of the 106-pound division, where Lee met Harmonie Roberts of Ukiah in a musical finale (Cadence and Harmonie) and pinned her in 3:49. The state title was the second straight for Lee, who overcame illness and injury to achieve her season-long goal. “Being able to take home the state title again is extremely satisfying,” Lee said. “There was a lot of pressure and anxiety leading up to the tournament, so

HOOP CHAMP . . . The Menlo College women’s basketball team earned a third straight trip to the NAIA Championships by winning the California Pacific Conference playoff title for the third year in a row on Monday night in Atherton. The top-seeded Lady Oaks (25-5) posted a 68-64 win over No. 3 seed William Jessup (14-15), Menlo’s third of the season over the Warriors. The Lady Oaks’ largest lead of the contest came on a basket by Laurel Donnenwirth with 4:00 remaining to make it 61-53. Donnenwirth again proved why she is considered one of the top players in the conference by building off of Saturday’s 28-point, 25-rebound performance with a 27point, 11-rebound effort in the championship game. Cal Pac Player of the Year Jolise Limcaco was the only other Menlo scorer in double-digits with 13 points, three rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes of action. Menlo now turns its focus to a trip to Sioux City, Iowa for the 32-team, single-elimination 2014 NAIA National Championships that get under way March 12.

The No. 3-seeded Bears (18-8) will face No. 4 Bellarmine (11-16) in the finals after the Bells advanced with a 55-53 double-overtime win over No. 1 San Benito. Bellarmine has won five of the past six Division I titles. Menlo-Atherton advanced by scoring 27 points in the fourth quarter as the Bears made 17 of 21 foul shots. Royce Branning led the way with 21 points.

Division IV girls Fifth-seeded Castilleja (20-9) reached its first-ever finale since moving up to Division IV with a dominating 48-28 semifinal victory over No. 1 seed and host Notre Dame-Belmont (10-17). Earlier in the evening on the same floor, No. 2-seeded Menlo (17-11) took a step closer to defending its D-4 crown with a 4340 win over No. 6 King’s Academy (21-7). “I’m stoked,” said Menlo senior Donya Dehnad, who finished with 16 points. “We’ve been working really hard and I think that it shows on the court. I think the fact that everyone underestimated us and didn’t think we would get here has really motivated us to work hard and prove them all wrong.” With 34 seconds left in the game, Menlo sophomore Mackenzie Duffner was fouled then sank one out of two free throws, giving Menlo a 42-40 lead. King’s Academy had a chance to tie the game, but a traveling violation turned the ball over to Menlo. Menlo took advantage of a great defensive effort that forced 29 turnovers. “We like to have an up-tempo game,” said Menlo head coach John Paye. “We did create a lot of turnovers and we did get in some foul trouble, but I was happy with our team play.” The Menlo defense was sturdy again in the third quarter as King’s Academy went on a fiveminute scoring drought and was able to score only two points for the quarter total. In the second semifinal, Castilleja avenged a 24-point seasonopening loss to ND-Belmont in December. In that game, Paige Vermeer did not play due to injury. Vermeer, this season’s WBAL Skyline Division MVP, made her presence felt against the Tigers on Tuesday with a career-high 26 points and six steals.

everything into motion as the Titans moved to 10-7 and edged the No. 4 Pirates’ season at 20-9. “We want state,” Gunn firstyear head coach Melanie Murphy boldly stated. “I expect a CCS championship from them and they know that. Even in the locker room that’s what we’re looking forward to — those are our expectations.” Gunn senior guard Zoe Zwerling sank two clutch free throws to give her team a comfortable 37-27 lead with 22.6 remaining in the fourth quarter. On the next Titan possession, Zwerling went to the line again and drained two free throws, sealing the win. Gunn went on a 9-0 run in the second quarter when junior Meghan Mahoney scored on a layup, giving the Titans a 18-9 lead. The Titans’ defense was tough all game long as they held the Vikings to a 4:11 scoring drought during the quarter. “We got a lot of stops on defense,” said Murphy. “They were communicating and talking and did everything that we’ve asked them to do at practice. All positive thoughts, especially on our defensive effort.” Mahoney finished off the third quarter by sinking a free throw and giving the Titans a 27-24 lead going into the fourth quarter. The junior finished 7 of 10 from the line and totaled 11 points in addition to grabbing 13 rebounds. The Gunn defense came up big again in the fourth quarter and gave up only three points to the Pirates’ offense. In the first semifinal at Gunn High, No. 3 seed Palo Alto dropped a 51-41 decision to No. 2 North Salinas. The Vikings (12-13) forged a 17-17 halftime deadlock but were outscored 13-5 in the third quarter and couldn’t make up the difference. “We got the shots we wanted and we just missed them,” said Palo Alto head coach Scott Peters. “We played hard and I thought our defense was good. Sometimes you can’t control the ball going in the hole.” On North Salinas’ last eight possessions of the game, it converted 10 of 16 free throws. The Vikings shot an appalling 4 of 36 from the field and only 46 percent from the line in the first half. “The effort was good and we got the shots we wanted —they just didn’t go in,” said Peters. Palo Alto’s shooting stayed ice cold in the fourth quarter as it converted only 3 of 10 free throws. The Vikings suffered 24 turnovers and shot a dreadful 18 percent from the field.

overtime loss to host Mitty. Senior Leeana Bade led Pinewood with 19 points. Eastside Prep battled No. 3 Mitty (17-11) evenly throughout, deadlocking the game at the end of regulation (44-44) and again after the first overtime (51-51) before the Monarchs pulled away. Junior Destiny Graham led Eastside Prep with 20 points with Alexus Simon adding 19.

Zoe Zwerling Division IV boys Sacred Heart Prep will play for its fourth CCS Division IV title in five years after the topseeded Gators (19-7) rolled to a 62-45 semifinal victory over No. 4 Palma (16-10) on Tuesday night at Menlo School. The Gators will face No. 6 Harker (18-9) in the title game on Saturday. Sacred Heart Prep and Harker played twice during the WBAL regular season, with the teams splitting. The Eagles’ victory in the second meeting cost the Gators sole possession of first place. Junior Corbin Koch had a gamehigh 22 points for SHP with sophomore Mason Randall adding 18, 15 coming on 3-pointers. A 35-23 advantage in the second half, during which Randall drained a trio of 3-pointers, proved to be the difference for the Gators. Division V boys WBAL rivals Pinewood and Priory will meet for a third time this season, this time for the CCS championship on Friday after both won in Pacifica. Top-seeded Pinewood (22-4) advanced with a 59-49 win over host Alma Heights while No. 2 Priory (16-9) moved on with a 55-53 overtime win over No. 3 St. Francis-Central Coast Catholic. Andy Isokpehi led Priory with 20 points while Scott Harris added 13 and Connor Bonfiglio 10. Pinewood will be seeking its fourth straight CCS title while making its fifth straight appearance. Ryan Brice led the Panthers with 23 points with Greg Naumann adding 11. N

ith the No. 1 seed in hand, the fourth-ranked Stanford women’s basketball team heads to the scene of its only conference loss to open the Pac-12 Tournament. The Cardinal (28-2) visits Seattle as the odds-on favorite to repeat as tournament champion. The Feb. 9 loss to Washington has either been forgotten or is being used as a reminder to pay attention. Pac-12 Player of the Year Chiney Ogwumike often takes time to remind herself and teammates, which also include all-Pac-12 selection Amber Orrange and allfreshmen pick Lili Thompson, that playing hard takes care of results. “Honored to be named Pac-12 POY & DPOY for 2nd year in a row!” Ogwumike tweeted. “I have the best teammates & coaches! Excited for the best month of the year!” Results are what drive Ogwumike, though it’s more about the team winning than her own statistics, which are certainly impressive. The senior leads the conference in scoring (27.0) and ranks third in the country. Her 12.1 rebounds per game are eighth in the nation, second in the Pac-12, and she is third in the country in field-goal percentage at 62.2. She is the only player in the country to rank in the top 10 in all three categories. Ogwumike became the Pac12’s all-time leader in rebounds and is within 49 points of tying the all-time scoring record (currently held onto by former Stanford great Candice Wiggins). Ogwumike, who also has 54 blocked shots, was voted Pac-12 Player of the Week for a record nine times this season. She scored at least 30 points in 13 games and 28 in 16, leading the Cardinal in scoring in all but two games. “With regard to basketball, my defining moments have not come during my triumphs but rather my struggles,” Ogwumike wrote in a blog for ESPNW. “No matter how hard you try to spruce it up, it doesn’t matter: Losing sucks.” Orrange averages 10.1 points, 4.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds. She also carries an assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.1-1. “Her work ethic is really special,” hall of fame coach Tara VanDerveer said. “A lot of it is just keeping her poised and keep playing hard every game.” Thompson averages 7.3 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game. She started 26 games this year, shooting 42.5 percent on 34 of 80 from long range. VanDerveer recorded her 900th career victory earlier this season

to become the fifth women’s basketball coach in NCAA history to reach the milestone. She was also voted (by her fellow coaches) as the Pac-12 Coach of the Year for the 14th time. Mikaela Ruef has developed into a potent inside threat, especially on the boards. She averages 9.5 rebounds and 6.9 points. She’s also second on the team with 3.1 assists per game. Eight other players have started at least one game, giving the feeling of depth along the Cardinal bench. Freshman Karlie Samuelson has logged the most minutes, while older sister Bonnie Samuelson, Taylor Greenfield, Erica McCall, Sara James, Kailee Johnson, Alex Green and Briana Roberson have all seen plenty of action. The sixth-seeded Huskies (1712) and Stanford, winner of six straight, can only meet in the championship game. Washington must win three games in three days to reach the final contest. Stanford has an extra day off. Stanford opens play Friday at noon against No. 9 Colorado, which upended No. 8 UCLA, 7665, on Thursday in the tournament’s first game. Men’s basketball Stanford continues to flirt with danger. Well, in the metaphorical sense at least. It’s dangerous in the sense that the Cardinal entered the week as a solid choice for the NCAA tournament. Now? Not so much. Stanford will need to put everything on the line Saturday morning for its 11:30 a.m. regular-season finale against visiting Utah. That’s because everything (read NCAA postseason) just might be on the line. The Cardinal is possibly looking at a must-win just to get back in good graces with the NCAA selection committee. “I haven’t even thought about it,” Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said after a 59-56 loss to visiting Colorado on Wednesday night. “All I can think about is a very disappointing loss on our home floor. I know we have to regroup for Saturday.” Things looked promising when Anthony Brown finished off a layup with 3:58 remaining to play in the game, giving Stanford a slight edge over the Buffaloes. Less than two minutes later, things were a lot brighter for Colorado in a critical Pac-12 game for both teams. The Buffs (10-7, 21-9) grabbed the upper hand for the fourth seed, holding their own fate when they visit California on Saturday night. Stanford (9-8, 18-11) likely cost itself a first-round bye in the conference tournament, to be held in Las Vegas. N

playing like they were capable of,” said head coach Donoson FitzGerald, who is in his 25th season at Menlo. “I’m proud of the way the girls played.” The top-seeded Knights (17-3-2) will meet No. 6 Sacred Heart Prep (19-2-2) in the title match Saturday at Valley Christian High in San Jose at 6 p.m. The two Atherton rivals have faced off twice already this season in the West Bay Athletic League, with Menlo winning one game and the two teams tying in the other contest. Both teams, which have won more matches than ever before, are looking for their second outright section title. The Knights shared crowns from 1988-90. Interestingly enough, the schools’ boys teams played for the Division III title last year. The result was a co-championship. Menlo certainly would not have made it to the championship game without Lacy’s stellar performance while filling in for Tilney-Volk, who could not make it to Wednesday night’s game. “(Lacy) was amazing,” said FitzGerald, who expects TilneyVolk to be available for the game Saturday. “When we realized Schuyler wasn’t going to be able to play, (Lacy) just said ‘I’m ready.’ She worked hard in practice yesterday, had a great attitude and was excited.” Stritter added that she and her teammates were extremely proud of Lacy’s poise and confidence in her first start at goalie. “Lizzie is such a star. She’s been such a team player and she stepped up to the occasion and gave it her all,” Stritter said. “She really shined, and we were so lucky to have someone so willing and athletic to be able to do that.” Stritter herself had an impressive performance, as her two goals were scored approximately one minute apart from each other midway through the second half. “She’s really good one on one with a goalie,” FitzGerald said of Stritter. “She made great plays. That’s why she’s our leading scorer along with Chandler (Wickers), and one of our captains. She can beat people and score goals.” The first half of the game was a struggle for Menlo, as the Knights were unable to get many good looks around the net despite dominating the time of possession. Instead, it was Priory that had a couple of great chances to score late in the first half. First, with 17 minutes left, Panthers’ standout Alicia Talancon had an open look at the net on a fast break. However, the freshman could not convert the golden opportunity, missing just wide to the left. Ten minutes later, Margaret Shields had a nice shot attempt in the box for the Panthers, but Lacy made a great play on the ball, diving to her left to save the goal. “That was a big play to keep the

Sacred Heart Prep’s Blair Hamilton (7), who usually plays goalie, got some field time during a 4-0 semifinal win. game scoreless there,” FitzGerald said of Lacy’s save. Starting the second half, Menlo made some team-wide adjustments, as FitzGerald implored his group to try and keep the ball on the ground. “Putting the ball on the ground is definitely something that’s important, especially against a team as physical as (Priory),” Stritter said. “We’re not always going to win the ball in the air, since some of our players are shorter. We have good dribblers . . . and when the ball is in the air we can’t play our game.” Menlo’s ground attack, and overall crisper passing, created more looks for the Knight around the goal, as Menlo put up 15 shots on goal in the second half. Stritter scored her first goal of the second half by following up Amanda McFarland’s partially blocked shot at the net, and placing the ball just inside the right post. Her second goal came by way of a fastbreak opportunity, as Wickers passed the ball up the field, and Stritter again converted around the net for the final goal of the game. “Both goals were really close, and well set up by my teammates. I couldn’t have done it without them,” Stritter said. For Saturday’s matchup against Sacred Heart Prep, FitzGerald is confident in his team’s abilities, but acknowledged it would take one of the Knights’ better performances to come out with a win. “We’ve obviously proven that we’re the two best teams,” FitzGerald said. “It’s going to be a very close game. We’re going to have to play two great halves against them.” Sacred Heart Prep advanced to its first title match since 2009 with

a 4-0 victory over No. 7 Scotts Valley (13-5-5) at Westmont High on Wednesday. The Gators rolled to a 3-0 halftime lead behind goals from Brigid White, Olivia Athens and Meagan Terpening. Tierna Davidson provided assists on the second and third goal. The final goal was an own goal as a shot bounced off a Scotts Valley player. In the girls’ Division I semifinals, No. 2 Palo Alto (11-5-5) kept it close until the end and dropped a 2-0 decision to SCVAL De Anza Division rival Los Gatos at Westmont High. The No. 3 Wildcats (11-4-5) scored in the 23rd and 67th minutes and kept SCVAL De Anza Division MVP Jacey Pederson off the scoreboard. The Vikings missed junior Lena Chang, who suffered an eye injury in the quarterfinals. Paly will return all but four graduating seniors —Jess Branson, Sunny Lyu, Julia Kwasnick and Megan Tall. N

I’m honestly pretty relieved.” Despite being quite ill, Lee went 3-0 on Friday with a 12-3 decision over Mia Hill of Weston Ranch of the San Joaquin Section, a pin of Marjoree Fargas of Paramount in 2:54, and a 7-2 decision of Marissa Gutierrez of Steele Canyon (San Diego). That set the stage for Saturday’s semifinal, where Lee pinned Alyssa Barredo of Walnut in 4:46. Barredo was the Southern Section champ. “All of the wrestlers that I faced were respectable opponents, but I had the most difficulty with my semifinal and final matches: Alyssa Barredo and Harmonie Roberts,” Lee said. Despite being the defending champ — the 4-foot-9 Lee wrestled at 103 pounds last year — she maintain her composure throughout and respected her opponents. This was her third straight appearance in the state meet, having finished second her sophomore year. A few weeks ago, Lee won her fourth straight title at the girls’ Central Coast Section finals.

While Lee was winning her state title, two teammates were earning berths in the CIF State Boys Wrestling Championships by finishing among the top three at Saturday’s CCS Championships at Independence High in San Jose. Gunn junior Ian Cramer was second at 132 pounds while senior teammate Stephen Martin was second at 182. Joining them at the state meet will be Palo Alto senior Josh Deckelman, who was third at 152 as the Vikings finished 13th overall with 63 points. Gunn finished eighth in the team standings with 88 points, trailing seventh-place Bellarmine by just three points and sixthplace St. Francis by less than 10. Cramer, the No. 2 seed, faced top-seeded Victor Olmos of team champion Gilroy in the finals and dropped a 7-2 decision. Martin, also a No. 2 seed lost a tough 2-0 decision to top-seeded Mark Penyacsek of Gilroy. In the 152-pound bracket, Paly’s Deckelman trailed only No. 1 seed Paul Fox of Gilroy and No. 2 seed Alex Garcia of Christopher School. Deckelman came in as an alternate, just outside the top six seeds. N
