Patrick Smailey said having one of the partners in the development business, Adventera/ Twenty-One Hundred Ventures, run the grocery store was an option they started considering two years ago. He has always planned to follow through with the kind

Guirguis, now 37, was traveling with her mother, aunt and two young daughters when the bus driver briefly stopped in a wooded area. When he returned, fueled by drugs, he began speeding down the precari-

Moments later, her daughter was killed in the crash, and the arms that had tried to protect her were smashed beyond repair. Guirguis had both amputated above the elbow, rendering her unable to care for herself in any way. With a major skull injury as well, she went into a coma.

But she survived. Her husband, Essam, has been her constant companion and caregiver, closing his travel business to feed, bathe and dress his wife and care for their 5 1/2-year-old child, Carole.

Bright, knowledgeable, communicative and not intimidated” are a few of the traits needed in a new superintendent of schools for Palo Alto, according to executive-search professionals who were publicly interviewed by the Board of Education Monday. After spending the morning hearing the presentations by representatives of three search firms, board members decided to hire southern California-based Leadership Associates, a partnership of former California school superintendents, to manage the search for a price of $31,500. Though they plan to advertise the Palo Alto job nationally, search professionals said Monday the new superintendent is likely to come from California for a variety of reasons, including the cost of housing and portability of state retirement packages. Palo Alto’s search will be led by Peggy Lynch, former superintendent of San Diego County’s San Dieguito Union High School District and Orange County’s Brea Olinda Unified School District. Also on the search team are Phil Quon, former superintendent of the Cupertino Union School District and San Jose’s Union School District, and Dennis Smith, former superintendent of Orange County’s Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District and Orange County Public Schools in Orlando, Fla. Lynch said she will work with board members and community groups to create a job description that best suits Palo Alto, including

asking people to rank the personal and professional characteristics they consider most important. She said the firm typically receives 15 to 20 applications and then recommends four to six, although sometimes there are as few as three applicants who best match the job description. Lynch said the firm will maintain confidentiality of all candidates until a finalist is named and representatives for Palo Alto visit the finalist’s home district for a final vetting. “Current superintendents are not going to put themselves out there if it’s public,” she said. “There may be five finalists, but only one’s going to get the job, and the other four have to go home.” Palo Alto is a “challenging place” to work as superintendent, search professionals said Monday. “We’ll want to be very cautious and careful and methodical as we talk to people so they’re realistic about the expectations here, as well as the living environment,” Smith said. “This is a challenging place,” he added. “You have to have a presence about you; you can’t cower but you want to be an affable person, probably someone who has some seasoning, a significant level of experience. And the housing market is certainly something we have to talk about with candidates.” Quon said the ideal candidate would have “political skills, communication skills that your com­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£x®

WALK THE WALK ... Cheryl Lilienstein, president of Palo Altans for Sensible Zoning, sent a candid open letter to all City Council members Wednesday, urging them to walk the walk when it comes to following their own “stated goals of open government, transparency, inclusion, datadriven decision making and completeness.” The letter does so by laying out five major issues the city faces and offers suggestions for how to implement concrete solutions. Issue No. 1 tackles “impartial ballot language,” asking the council to investigate how San Francisco creates impartial ballot language (hint: a referendum is “not impartial if the city attorney writes it”) and to pass an ordinance that establishes a process whereby creators of a referendum work together with the city attorney to “create ballot language that is actually impartial and satisfies both parties,” Lilienstein writes. “This would be efficient and waste less time and money producing legal challenges and make for a more amicable relationship between parties. It’s also the right thing to do.” The second issue tackles Palo Alto’s management needs, proposing that City Council seats should be fully paid positions “in order to attract great leadership.” (She doesn’t suggest the salary level, however.) Issue No. 3 is a familiar one: residents’ continuing distrust of traffic reports. Lilienstein writes that the city should create a short list of vetted traffic engineers that developers must choose from and also require any studies undergo peer review before heading to the planning department for approval. Next up: “distressingly inefficient” City Council meetings. Lilienstein blames this on the fact that staff reports are issued only days before meetings and suggests that the city require all reports be submitted at least 10 business days in advance of every council meeting. “It’s a process that all too often results in delayed decisions, and creates ineffective, inefficient, incomplete meetings, elongated and disorderly

discussions, and poor outcomes,” the letter reads. “Staff reports released with too little time to read/reflect/consult/question or gain clarity create cynicism about staff and council, even when everyone is working hard to produce a good outcome.” In her last and final issue, she argues that staff reports make recommendations but fail to spell out the impacts of proposed developments. Lilienstein deems this “bad governance” and suggests each report follow a standardized format, include possible alternatives and state which parts of the Comprehensive Plan are being addressed — and not addressed — by the proposal.

BROKEN BOARDWALK ... The Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center Boardwalk, which runs between the Interpretive Center and the bay, is on its last legs and has been closed due to unsafe structural conditions, the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve posted on its Facebook page Wednesday. The organization said that saltwater and weather have caused the majority of the pilings and support under the boardwalk to gradually decay and break. “Over the years staff has made many repairs to the boardwalk; however, now the majority of the support pilings and structure of the boardwalk are broken,” the post reads. “Most likely the entire boardwalk will have to be replaced. Given the environmentally sensitive location and future changes in sea level rise, the city will study how best to address the problem.” City staff is in the process of requesting capitalimprovement funding for a study on the best route for repairing and/or replacing the boardwalk. This analysis will likely begin late this year or in early 2015. The boardwalk was installed more than 40 years ago, in 1969 (the same year the Interpretive Center was dedicated). More information about this project is available from John Aiken, manager of the Junior Museum and Zoo, at 650-329-2111. N

Palo Alto looks to resolve ‘retention crisis’ with pay raises With vacancies on the rise, city offers major salary bumps to Public Works, Utilities workers by Gennady Sheyner

F

or years, Palo Alto’s Utilities Department employees and managers fretted about the challenges of recruiting and retaining skilled workers at a time of stagnant salaries and reduced benefits. Now, with the city’s economic recovery speeding along and tax revenues happily spiking, the city is doing something to stem the concerns — pay workers more. In the recently completed round of contract negotiations with Service Employees International Union, Local 521, the City Council adopted a set of principles that included “setting compensation at levels sufficient to recruit and retain qualified employees when economically

feasible.� The city also tried to align salaries of the SEIU workers with the median of comparable jurisdictions. In the Utilities Department, the effort has particular urgency. The department currently has 20 open positions out of 236 positions in the budget, and the problem may get even more acute in the next few years. More than half of the Utilities workforce will be eligible for retirement by 2015, according to a report from city’s Human Resources department. The hope is that the new contract, which reserves the biggest pay bumps for the most urgently needed employees, will help curtail or perhaps delay this potential exodus. The council is expected to approve the

contract on Monday. Under the proposal, while splicers in Utilities would receive 12.1 percent raises over the two-year period and utility locators would receive raises of 14.6 percent, a utilities-system operator would receive a 19.5 percent raise. In the wastewater-treatment plant, most employees would get raises of 8.3 percent, while the maintenance mechanic would see a salary increase of 14.5 percent over the two-year period. “We know there’s a risk, especially in Utilities,� Chief People Officer Kathryn Shen told the Weekly. “Just looking at the age of our utilities operators and managers, we know we have to be prepared for turnover, and we know

we’ll have to recruit.� Shen said the city is also now in the process of doing a new market study for the managers and professional group, which would be based on more recent data than the one used for the last salary alignment. The staffing situation in Utilities and Public Works has been called a “crisis� by workers. Many staff members have left the city since 2009. In January, Aaron Miller, an operator at the water quality control plant, told the council that two of his coworkers recently left the department to take jobs that paid them an additional $10 an hour. “The city isn’t paying competitive wage for the skilled workers,� Miller said. “I believe that a hiring

Cruz said. Four operators have left to work for Santa Clara, he said, because of wage differences. A new report conducted by the consulting firm Leidos, which examined the culture within the Utilities Department, confirms that these have not been happy times at the department — and not merely from a financial standpoint. The report, known as the “Utilities Department Organization Assessment,â€? surveyed the workers and, (continued on page ÂŁÂŁ)

ARCHITECTURE

New bike boulevards planned throughout Palo Alto City Council to consider $2.2 million in design contracts for 17 bike projects by Gennady Sheyner been doing since 2003. The new plan proposes to create a citywide network of bike trails and boulevards as well as new connections across existing barriers such as El Camino Real, Alma Street and U.S. Highway 101. The plan states that Palo Alto can build upon its bike-friendly history and its demand for better bike and pedestrian access “to solidify its status as one of the most bicycle friendly communities in California, if not the country.� The proposed projects would be the biggest step taken by the city to address the vision of the bike plan since the council committed more than $1.3 million for a new bike bridge over Highway 101, a $10 million project that will be funded largely by grants. The council is also considering including bike improvements on its list of infrastructure projects that could potentially be funded by a 2 percent increase in the hotel tax, which voters could approve in November. Though the projects range in size and ambition, most of those about to be designed seek to turn major segments of existing streets into bike boulevards — streets with low traffic volumes, trafficcalming features such as speed humps, traffic circles and barriers and markings that aim to make it easy for cars and bikes to share the road. Bike boulevards also typically facilitate free-flow travel for bicycles by placing stop signs on streets crossing the boulevard, rather than the boulevard itself. The Homer and Channing avenues project, which would stretch

between Alma and Boyce Avenue, would turn each one-way street into an “enhanced bikeway,� a less intense version of a bike boulevard that relies on lane markings and signage to encourage cars and cyclists to share the road. In the staff proposal, the 10 projects would be divvied up between two consultants: Fehr & Peers and Alta Planning + Design. In addition to these, staff is proposing a $275,000 contract with Sandis Engineers to design bike enhancements on Churchill Avenue, between El Camino Real and Castilleja Avenue; and a $737,767 contract with Mark Thomas & Associates for a bike corridor on Charleston-Arastradero Road, between Fabian Way and Miranda Avenue. The lattermost project includes new landscaped median islands, intersection bulb-outs, enhanced bike lanes, new street trees and new streetlights, according to a staff report. The city has already received $450,000 in state funding and $1 million in a grant from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority for these improvements. A fifth contract would also go to Alta for creation of a bike route along the Matadero Creek trail. It’s not just the state and the county that are offering to help Palo Alto with its many bike improvements. The city has also received a proposal from the Mountain View-based tech giant Google, which is planning to occupy 200 San Antonio Road, a site

M

ore than three decades after Palo Alto turned Bryant Street into the nation’s first “bicycle boulevard,� the city is preparing to dramatically accelerate its bicycling-improvement program and create similar bike-friendly corridors on Greer Road, Wilkie Way, Park Boulevard and Stanford Avenue. These four proposed “bike boulevards� are among the 17 bike-related projects for which staff is requesting design services. If the City Council approves the request from city planners on Monday night, five contracts worth $2.2 million will be awarded to four different consultants for design work on these projects, which also include new bike boulevards on sections of Ross Road, Moreno Avenue and also Bryant Street, where an existing bike boulevard would be extended north to Palo Alto Avenue and south to East Meadow Circle. Consultants will also consider new bike routes in the Barron Park neighborhood and biking enhancements on Homer and Channing avenues. The ambitious list of biking proposals comes at a time of both high enthusiasm on the council for improving the city for bicyclists and a healthy revenue landscape, which makes it possible for city officials to turn their bike dreams into reality. In July 2012, the council unanimously approved a new Bike + Pedestrian Master Plan and members vowed at the time not to let this document languish on a shelf and collect dust as its predecessor had

A new sign for Grocery Outlet, which is expected to open in April, has attracted criticism of its large size.

Controversial sign installed Yet-to-open south Palo Alto grocery gets regulation-busting signage

A

26-foot-tall sign for the new Grocery Outlet in south Palo Alto’s Alma Village was erected last week, but one of its most controversial features — illumination — is yet to be seen. The red and white sign at 3445 Alma St. was approved by the City Council on a 6-3 vote in December. At the time, council members who supported the approval acknowledged the signage’s regulation-busting square footage — 104 square feet, which is 30 times what is normally allowed in the area — but said that helping a grocer to be successful was paramount. Just last April, Miki’s Fresh Market, which had been heralded upon its opening, shuttered after less than six months due to financial problems. Council members in December criticized the Alma Village development for its poor visibility from the road, among

Tom DuBois, a resident who had appealed the sign’s approval by the city’s Architectural Review Board, argued to the council that allowing such a sign would put Palo Alto on a slippery slope. “Small signs work when everyone has them,� DuBois said. “Once we have large signs, it will kick off an arms race.

California’s 2010 Kindergarten Readiness Act — which phased in a requirement that children entering kindergarten must be 5 years old by Sept. 1 instead of Dec. 2 — has suppressed kindergarten enrollment for the past two years, contributing to the slowed enrollment growth. “When the three small kindergarten classes move through the system, there will be small classes at each level, so we’ll have a number of years where we’ll have less kids flowing through all the grades,” board Vice President Melissa Baten Caswell said. “Given the costs of opening a new elementary school — both construction and operating — fiscally this is the right decision.” Board member Dana Tom agreed. “It doesn’t make sense to open a new school earlier than you need it, like you wouldn’t buy a new

or the third time in five years, the Palo Alto Board of Education has hit the pause button on plans to open a new elementary school, citing enrollment growth that was slower than expected. A majority of board members Tuesday signaled agreement with Superintendent Kevin Skelly’s recommendation to drop a timeline that would have had them decide on the location of a 13th elementary school by this spring and to let Skelly’s replacement take a fresh look at the issue next year. Board members agreed to disband a committee that was pondering programming and the location for a new school and to reopen talks to extend the leases of two independent schools now renting space from the district at 870 N. California Ave. (Stratford School) and 525 San Antonio Road (Athena Academy).

computer until you need it,” he said. “You’ll make a better decision closer to when you need it and also not incur those costs.” Even board President Barb Mitchell, perhaps the strongest voice on the board in favor of committing funds to prepare for enrollment growth, supported delaying the process. “I still am in favor of a 13th elementary school ... but the new superintendent really needs to be involved in this process,” she said. Board member Camille Townsend — a strong backer of innovative programming in the district, such as the Mandarin Immersion Program — said taking an additional year would provide more time for officials to ponder creative programming ideas for a new campus. A year ago, the Board of Education made a similar decision to defer a decision on a new elementary school after members of a parent and staff Elementary Site Selection Advisory Committee had met for three months to consider the options. In 2009, the board approved schematic architectural designs for a $15.5 million renovation of the Garland School campus at 870 N. California Ave. in preparation for a 2012 re-opening. But just six weeks later, citing stalled enrollment growth and a $3 million “structural deficit” for 2009-10, the board voted to retreat from that plan. Districtwide enrollment has been on an upward trajectory for more than two decades after falling to a post-Baby Boom low of 7,500 in 1989. Enrollment today stands at 12,500, but the pace of growth has slowed. Early registration for next fall’s kindergarten and prekindergarten classes is 39 students lower than last year’s, officials recently reported. N

District struggles to develop policy for handling bullying Parents say district needs to spell out processes, timeline for resolving investigations of complaints by Chris Kenrick and Terri Lobdell

P

alo Alto Superintendent Kevin Skelly said he will rewrite a proposed school district policy on bullying after his latest version was criticized Wednesday by parents as well as members of the Board of Education’s Policy Review Committee. Committee chair Camille Townsend suggested that the full board take up the bullying policy issue because, she said, its substance is “bigger than” the two members of the board subcommittee. Though the school board approved new policies in February aimed at protecting minority and disabled students from bullying and harassment, members said they also want a separate policy that clarifies procedures for the families of so-called “non-protected-class” students who have been bullied. But the draft offered up Wednesday satisfied neither the board committee nor the dozen parents who sat through the meeting. Committee member Heidi Emberling said the draft resembled “the kitchen sink” in its attempt to be comprehensive, combining policies on student conduct, bullying prevention and bullying intervention, including complaint procedures. “I want to make sure we have what needs to be in here but also have clear guidelines and policies for stakeholders and students,” Emberling said. Townsend said she appreciated an apparent effort by drafters to avoid creating paper trails on minor playground squabbles but added that the draft lacked clear guidelines for victims and perpetrators in alleged bullying situations. Eight parents in the audience who spoke expressed strong dissatisfaction with the proposal, saying it lacked timelines as well as clarity for parents about what their recourse is if they feel their child has been victimized. Oakland lawyer Dora Dome, who has consulted with the district on drafting policies on discrimination, harassment and bullying, repeatedly noted that the district is not required to have any policy at all on bullying of nonprotected-class students. Neither federal nor state law requires any procedures for handling complaints made by non-protectedclass victims of bullying. Dome said she personally does not advocate creating new rights (for parents and students) in district policies that do not exist in the law but said the district may want to do so in this case. “What are you trying to achieve with this policy?” Dome repeat-

edly asked. “Do you want to do it for one particular kind of behavior versus any potential claim where there is a victim? It has to be a conscious decision because it’s not required statutorily.” Emberling responded that bullying needed special attention in a board policy. “We as a country are taking bullying more seriously. ... Research has shown the effects of bullying are severe, and that is what made bullying rise to this level of seriousness, and I think the conversations and the interactions and the struggle we are having around this are mirrored throughout the country.” Brenda Carrillo, the school district’s coordinator of student services who has overseen the drafting of the latest version of the policy, said the draft was the result of wide community input and an effort to make all children feel in-

‘We need some kind of procedure, some kind of deadline, some kind of sense of what’s going to happen.’ —Michele Dauber, professor, Stanford Law School cluded, welcome and safe at school, as well as to provide guidance to parents. But parents in the audience complained that the draft lacked sufficient guidelines. “The procedure (in the draft) is almost entirely illusory,” Stanford Law Professor Michele Dauber said. “We need some kind of procedure, some kind of deadline, some kind of sense of what’s going to happen,” she said. “That has been promised and promised and promised over and over again to the community. It doesn’t make sense to me for you to take two years struggling with this and come out of it without a deadline, or a due date, or a timeline.” The draft policy discussed Wednesday outlines a school-level investigation procedure for all bullying complaints that are not based on legally protected characteristics (race, sex, disability, etc.) and requires a separate districtlevel process known as the Uniform Complaint Procedure (UCP) for all complaints protected under anti-discrimination laws. Regarding timelines, Skelly said Wednesday that one reason the latest draft lacked them was because “people start stretching to the end (of the time limit), and I

don’t want to stretch to the end — we want our administrators to be responsive to these things.” But Skelly indicated he was open to timelines. Townsend also said she would be willing to consider timelines but reiterated her concern that “normal interactions that kids have at school” not be unduly formalized and escalated, with paper trails. Parent Andrea Wolf drew applause from the audience of about 13 parents when she called for a consistent anti-bullying curriculum across the district’s 12 elementary schools. “It’s terrible that at the district we don’t have every site doing the same (anti-bullying) program when we all feed into three middle schools and two high schools,” Wolf said. “The idea that we’re allowing 12 or 13 elementary schools to teach all these different programs and when the kids get to middle school they don’t have the same language, that’s appalling to me.” But Skelly defended the multiple curricula, saying the district has attempted “to capture the consistency issue” with input from parents and through language in the policy that promotes “a wide range of year-long programs for positive school culture, focused on pro-active practices and intervention strategies to build resilience ... embedded into the curriculum.” Emberling questioned the definition of bullying contained in the latest draft, saying she would like to include the definition used in the bullying-prevention field: repeated hurtful acts involving an imbalance of power. Emberling said the community is looking for clear bullying policies and procedures that engender trust. “The community is asking for guidance — not only our parents community, but also teachers and administrators want guidance from us,” she said. “I realize that we have very strong sites in our schools, and that’s great for innovation, but they’re looking for guidance in terms of a bullying policy. We as a board need to give it to them.” Emberling indicated she was open to the idea of using the Uniform Complaint Procedure for all bullying complaints (of protected and non-protected-class victims), as recommended by the California School Boards Association. “If we’re talking about bullying in terms of the larger issue that bullying causes emotional damage, then to me it doesn’t matter if it’s a protected class or not. If it rises to that level, we want to have

News Digest Two-lane Newell bridge option back A fifth option for replacing the Newell Road bridge, previously scrapped by the City of Palo Alto, has been put back on the table for environmental review at the request of the City of East Palo Alto. East Palo Alto City Manager Magda Gonzalez sent a letter to Palo Alto City Manager James Keene on March 11, following a meeting last week to discuss the issue, officially requesting Palo Alto include the option — a two-lane bridge that fully realigns Newell Road on both the Palo Alto and East Palo Alto sides — as it moves forward in the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) process. Out of eight initial bridge concepts, this option was known as alternative eight. Brad Eggleston, Palo Alto’s assistant director of Public Works, said the city reversed its position to respect the collaborative nature of the bridge-replacement project. “Because this is really a project in partnership (and) given that it was important to East Palo Alto, we decided we should put it back in for further study, even though we publicly said that Palo Alto doesn’t support that option,” he said. He added that staff is also examining an alternative for a one-lane bridge with bi-directional traffic and traffic signals that they don’t anticipate would be built but still merits more study. With the addition of alternative eight, the EIR will now examine five alternatives for replacing the flood-prone Newell bridge. The next step will be a public EIR scoping meeting, to be held in the next few months. N — Elena Kadvany

Feds sued over Stanford’s Searsville Dam Environmental groups who have an ongoing lawsuit against Stanford University for its diversion of water from endangered species habitat into Searsville Dam have filed a second suit against the National Marine Fisheries Service. San Francisco-based Our Children’s Earth and the Ecological Rights Foundation filed the lawsuit on Tuesday, March 11, in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. Defendants include U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and Marine Fisheries Regional Administrator Rodney McInnis, according to the complaint. Environmental groups have long asserted that Stanford’s diversion of water from San Francisquito Creek and related tributaries negatively impacts endangered species, including steelhead trout and the red-legged frog. Beyond Searsville Dam and others complained to the Marine Fisheries Service last year about the dam. The service confirmed it was looking into investigating whether the impediment to the fish constitutes a “taking” of the species, which would violate the Endangered Species Act. The latest lawsuit claims two water diversions downstream from Searsville Dam that are operated by Stanford — the San Francisquito pump station and the Los Trancos Diversion facility — are illegally diverting the water. “There are no water diversions occurring at Searsville,” Stanford spokeswoman Jean McCown said in an email. “Due to the drought, there is as little water in the watershed as anyone at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve can ever remember. There is little water in the creek either above or below the dam, and there is nothing Stanford can do to change that, nor is the dam of any consequence under these conditions.” Stanford has recently been studying what to do about Searsville, with the reservoir about 90 percent full of silt. Options include dredging the reservoir or allowing it to fill in completely and creating other sources for water diversion, among others. N — Sue Dremann

Citizens panel to aid city in addressing housing Faced with state mandates and market pressures to build more housing, Palo Alto officials are considering a wide range of locations — from city-owned parking lots to the sprawling site of Fry’s Electronics — to address the city’s housing needs. New planning efforts, which will stretch until early next year, aim to both address the city’s lack of affordable housing and to comply with state law, which requires Palo Alto to plan for 1,988 housing units between 2015 and 2023. The housing mandate, dictated by the Association of Bay Area Governments, includes 691 housing units for residents classified as “very low income” — those who earn less than 50 percent of the area median income. To assist with this task, the city has appointed a new citizens group including architect Tony Carrasco, planning Commissioner Greg Tanaka, former Mayor Dena Mossar and Palo Alto Neighborhoods co-chair Sheri Furman. The advisory panel, which held its inaugural meeting on March 11, will help staff identify local sites that are ripe for growth and consider new policies to encourage denser building without further exacerbating the city’s parking and traffic problems.

That divine hand led her to a Bay Area entrepreneur who would help her receive prosthetic arms. Dozens of local medical professionals — at Stanford University Medical Center and in Palo Alto, Mountain View and surrounding communities — have donated their time and facilities at little or no cost to help Guirguis and her family. After three weeks in the U.S., she can play with her daughter again. On Tuesday morning, occupational therapist Natalie DeLeon hung nearly a dozen colorful plastic rings on pegs in a corner of the therapy room at Covenant Care’s Palo Alto Sub-Acute and Rehabilitation Center on Bryant Street. Guirguis, sporting new mechanical arms, reached for the rings with the hooks that now serve as her hands. Using shoulder movements to extend the elbow joint of her new arms, which are moved with springs and pulleys, she hooked a red ring and dropped it into a plastic basin. Guirguis smiled with each successful effort, often laughing. “I want to learn,” she said. A year and eight months after the accident, Guirguis is still being treated for a severe head injury and infection, despite skin grafts from her thigh. She wears a knit cap to cover the head wound where her hair is still missing and to keep the area clean as it heals. When she first arrived, her arms were like jelly, rehab specialists said. Now she can open doors and perform other daily living activities. Sameh Michaiel, co-founder of a software startup, Mobilque, watched as Guirguis has learned to use her new arms. Her journey has been his too, with God’s guidance, he said. For him, it began with a phone call from his brother-in-law, a volunteer at St. Mary of Zeitoun hospital where Guirguis was treated in Egypt. He felt immediately moved to act, he said. He began raising money through the nonprofit St. Samuel the Confessor, a Coptic relief organization in Egypt, and

he phoned all over the U.S. to find a place to get her arms. Few organizations work with bilateral amputees. Persons with bilateral amputations above the elbow comprise less than onetenth of 1 percent of the amputee population, according to prosthetic professionals involved in the project. Michaiel contacted the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, which could help, but the estimated cost was $200,000. “Obviously, it was extremely out of reach,” he said. But looking closer to home, he found Norell Prosthetics Orthotics in Mountain View, where Charlie Kelly volunteered to help. He worked with Campbell-based company Hosmer, which manufactures prostheses. Hosmer supplied the prosthetic arms at low cost, he said. Kelly and Guirguis worked from 5 p.m. until 1 a.m. to properly fit and work the arms, he said. When the family and Michaiel insisted on paying him, he made up a bill and instead wrote they should make the check payable to Carole’s college fund, he said. “My mom was a trauma nurse. I grew up in a trauma ward and in the emergency room. I’ve seen a lot of bad things happen to good people,” he said. Kelly said he will remember this project for the rest of his career and his life. “She had nothing but gratitude. There was just a fire in her that you could see was driving her,” he said. Michaiel saw Guirguis for the first time through Skype during her interview with Kelly. Recalling that moment brings him to tears. “I asked her what she would like to be able to do, and she said she wanted to comb her daughter’s hair again,” he said. Michaiel called Deirdre Ruvolo-Walker, housing coordinator at Stanford Medical Center Social Work & Case Management, to find affordable accommodations for Guirguis and her family. Through the Assistance League of Los Altos, she arranged a $35-a-night stay in an apartment the organization owns across from the hos-

pital, she said. Barbara Ralston, the vice president of International Medicine at Stanford, assigned an Arabic-speaking representative, and the primary-care clinic got the Santa Clara Valley Medical Burn Center to treat her head injuries, Ruvolo-Walker said. “When I met her, I was just blown away. ... I expected to meet a very sick, depressed person. This beautiful spirit came out of her, and you could see it come out of her eyes. “This whole community came together on this. It was a remarkable communal effort that demonstrates what I like to think of in life: that people are basically good,” she said. Ruvolo-Walker called Heidi Stone, area director of sales and marketing for Covenant Care. “Heidi helps us a lot. We call her when we have very sensitive issues and difficult cases,” she said. The company’s board immediately offered Guirguis all care and treatment free of charge, she said. Guirguis can soon leave with her family for home, perhaps in a few weeks, said Jonathan Fusilero, facility rehab coordinator. She can read a newspaper and use the computer to look at her Facebook page — something that has given her great pleasure, she said. She is thankful for all that Americans have done for her, and faith that has made it all possible, she said. “This looks as if this is an extremely difficult life experience. Since the very, very beginning, we have felt God’s presence. It doesn’t feel as difficult because this is the act of God, and we are handling it with peace and resilience,” she said. Carole sat beside her mother and pressed inward, holding the hook that is now her mother’s hand. Guirguis reflected on what the new arms have given her family after so much loss. “One of the first things I wanted to do is to hug my daughter and comfort her, and now I can hug her. And I am looking forward to comforting her,” she said. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@ paweekly.com.

after listing their many frustrations, concluded that “the organization is ready for change.” Workers specifically feel limited by bureaucracy and cost-reduction efforts and would like a “more open work environment” and more accountability, Leidos found. The current culture, the report states, directs “employees’ energy toward negative rather than positive factors. “This indicates that approximately one-third of the efforts and energy is negatively focused, which impacts overall organizational performance,” the report states. “However, the survey also shows that the employees have a desire to improve the way the group works together to build a strong internal community and are open and ready for change. The employees are asking for a more open work environment and to be held accountable.” The firm recommends that the city make an effort in “addressing the potentially limiting values of bureaucracy, confusion, cost reduction and control.” “CPAU should also address employee requests for accountability and development through training and recognition, competitive compensation packages, and opportunities to develop effective processes/systems and communication strategies,” the report states.

Emberling also proposed the idea of a board “Conduct Policy” to handle the more “garden-variety” student misbehavior that did not rise to the level of the more harmful bullying situations in order to clearly separate out other types of misconduct from the more seriously damaging bullying behavior. Skelly said he would draft a new policy, publicize it and set a deadline for people to provide feedback, and return to the committee. “I’m still committed to getting something,” he said. “What we

report from City Manager James Keene notes that the 2012 Customer Satisfaction Survey “indicated that while customers experienced fewer outages, they were less satisfied with the time that it has taken to restore service.” This, the report notes, is very likely the result of six open linesperson/cable splicer positions (half of the 12 budgeted positions). “While no evidence suggests that current authorized staffing levels are in excess of current needs, the ability to meet future needs could be very different if attrition due to retirements and employees leaving for better opportunities is realized as expected,” the staff report states. The new SEIU contract will cover 570 union members, more than half of whom will receive salary raises beyond the 4.6 percent cost-of-living adjustment that every employee will receive. In most cases, the salaries would be raised to align with those in other jurisdictions. In addition to utilities workers, the SEIU group includes employees from Library, Planning, Public Works, Public Safety and other departments. The group makes up about half of the city’s total workforce. An average raise in the new agreement is 7.7 percent. The new contract will cost the city about $7.6 million in additional compensation over the two-year period, which stretches from December 2013 to December 2015.

we have given it the best corner on the block. It should be a home run for everybody — the residents, the store and the neighborhood,” he told the Weekly. But some neighbors of the development aren’t so sure. One of the terms of the development’s approval was that the new grocery store would be comparable to JJ&F. “Do they have experience operating a grocery store?” Doria Summa of the College Terrace Residents Association wrote in an email Wednesday. “Can they provide something ‘comparable’ to the multi-generational family-owned business that the Garcia family operated for over 60 years?” Another stipulation in the city’s approval of the new development was that the signed lease must be enforceable against the tenant. “Does one really expect us to believe that the landlord, the father, will enforce a lease agreement against his son and co-partner?” resident Fred Balin asked. “Here we have a situation where the city needs to explain how this lease meets the stipulations for the market.” Referring to the zoning that the city granted the development, known as “planned community”

Demolition of the existing buildings at the corner of El Camino Real and College Avenue in Palo Alto is scheduled to begin this spring. A new complex of office, retail and low-rent apartments, called College Terrace Centre, will be built. (PC) zoning, Balin added: “(Enforcement) is one of the major things people complained about with PCs. It’s something the council tried to tighten up, specifically in this process.” Planned-community projects have become increasingly controversial in recent years, as developers are allowed to build more densely in exchange for giving the city and residents “public benefits,” such as parks, plazas, affordable housing and community centers. However, opponents of PC zones say that many of those promises have not materialized or have been lost as the city has allowed, for example, public spaces to become outdoor seating for restaurants. While the Smaileys said they

had initially intended for the JJ&F Market to return to the new development, the Garcias do not plan to reopen the market, Patrick Smailey said. The subsequent market operators, the Khoury family, expressed interest in relocating to the new space, but they did not submit a formal proposal, Smailey said. Family member Ronnie Khoury said in August 2013 they were not approached

to occupy the new market space. They received a 30-day eviction notice and closed the store in mid-September. A source close to the family said this week they would not return. Russ Reich, a senior planner for the city, said the College Terrace Centre’s PC ordinance requires the city to sign off on the grocery store lease and the tenant. The city’s legal team approved the

form of the lease on Dec. 8, but the city has not yet approved J & A Family Markets as the tenant. The city has the option to not approve a tenant, but only if city staff reasonably finds the tenant is not likely to be comparable in quality of products and service as JJ&F. Staff has requested the Smaileys provide the city with a business and marketing plan for the grocery store, and the city will review the plans prior to making a decision on the tenant. Before any office tenants can move in, the grocery tenant must begin operations, Reich added. Meanwhile, construction may move forward, he said. Demolition and construction is planned to begin this spring. The company announced in February it had secured funding through Canyon Capital Realty Advisors. Completion of the development is scheduled for August 2015. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@ paweekly.com.

munity demands, and somebody who knows instruction, finances and how to ask the right questions when he or she gets here to mold the team into an organization that will move the district forward.� “There are a lot of great candidates out there, but they’re not necessarily going to be successful in Palo Alto,� Smith said. “You can say it’s a tough gig; there’s a lot of pressure here. There’s no question about that. This is a unique district, and you need a unique leader.� Leadership Associates is the same firm the district hired in 2007 for the search that yielded current Superintendent Kevin Skelly. That search cost the district $35,000. This time, however, the search team members are different. Among the runners-up Monday was search firm Hazard, Young Attea & Associates, which managed the searches for Skelly’s two predecessors, Don Phillips, who served from 1997 to 2001; and Mary Frances Callan, who served from 2002 to 2007.

February 15, 1931 – February 11, 2014 Resident of Atherton

November 12, 1930 − February 25, 2014 summer he had spent as a teenager, on a ranch owned by his sister Patty and her husband in the Rosebud Mountains of Montana. There he had learned about horses and cattle, about packing, about the joys of reading by lantern light, and from the native people a different way of seeing the land. His sister, who predeceased him, also taught him about music, and his memory of her and of music she loved echoed through his life. That early time in Montana never left him. It was with him when, at 17 he enlisted in the Marine Corps, was appointed as a cadet in the United States Military Academy at West Point, completing one year there and lettering in three sports, playing football briefly for backfield coach Vince Lombardi. Nor did it leave him when he entered Colby College in 1952 where, as he later wrote, he “found, in an academic community, a place where my love of literature could take root and where I could realize the possibilities for thought and decency and understanding,” In 2005, he became the writer he had wanted to be. His first novel, High Country, was published and earned two Spur Awards from the Western Writers of America, for Best First Novel and Best Novel of the West. In 2011, his second novel, Blue Heaven, appeared and in it he returned to the lives of two strongly imagined characters, Ty Hardin and Fenton Pardee - one young, the other old, who, in both books, experience the dangers and the splendors of an American wilderness that, as they live and age, is changing all around them. In many ways these stories were Bill’s story. He is survived by his two sons, Willard G. Wyman III of Santa Barbara, and his wife Michelle and their three children (Caitlin, Casey and Molly), and Jedediah Fowler Wyman of Corvallis, Oregon; his former wife Jane Fowler Wyman; several nieces and nephews; and by Barbara Saxon, his partner for many years. Near death, Bill said, “You know, I’ve had an interesting life. Most of it, good. And – I helped a lot of young people.” In the end, that is his legacy, that was what mattered to him – the people whose lives he had touched. They were legion. A celebration of Bill’s life will be held on March 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. Those wishing to attend should be in contact with Gaye Torjusen (gaye@ torjusen.com). PA I D

Thomas Arthur Croft

Willard Gordon Wyman Willard G. (Bill) Wyman, a long-term resident of La Honda, and a friend to many in the Stanford and Palo Alto community, died peacefully on February 25 at Stanford Hospital. He was 83 years old. His death was caused by lung cancer. Born in China as the son of a career officer in the United States Army, Bill 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 a star athlete and lacrosse player. After his own schooling was completed, he began his career as educator on the Peninsula in 1958, where he taught English and was head football and swimming coach at Menlo School. In 1962, he enrolled as a graduate student at Stanford, receiving his doctoral degree in 1969 while, at the same time, serving as Associate Dean of Students and, later, as Special Assistant to then President Richard W. Lyman in the academic year 1969-70. His special gifts as a calm negotiator during the years of protest about the war in Vietnam earned him the respect of both student activists and his academic and administrative colleagues. From 1971 to 1975, he was dean of students and associate professor of English at his alma mater, Colby College in Maine. In 1975, he returned to California to become headmaster of The Thacher School in Ojai and served with success there until his retirement in 1992. Under his leadership, the school opened its doors to women, saw its camping and horse programs invigorated, its precarious fiscal situation reversed, its endowment increased twenty-fold to $20 million, its campus strengthened by a constellation of new buildings, and its academic stature returned to a national prominence it had not enjoyed since its early years. During these years, he began taking groups of students, alumni, friends of the University, and personal friends on eclectic, weeklong pack trips into the High Sierra – trips for which he would become a legend. In the mid-nineties, moving to his new home, a handsome ranch house on the Skyline Ridge with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Bill started a new career, one he had perhaps envisioned during all the years of his youth— that of a novelist. He returned in memory to the

He started his career as a high school physics teacher at Barrington High School in Barrington, Ill. But on a summer trip to California in 1975, he fell in love with the state and settled in Sunnyvale. Although he moved back to Chicago to start a company for a time, he returned to California in 1985. He worked for many companies over his career, preferring smaller companies and start-ups, especially in biotech where he could take on many roles. He is lovingly remembered by his family, friends and coworkers as a caring, gentle man with an insatiable curiosity about computers and technology in general. He was known for his inventiveness, professionalism and willingness to always lend a hand and mentor others. Greenman leaves his wife, Anne Houghteling, of Palo Alto; his sister, Sharron Pierce, of Chicago, and nephews Greg Kreger, of Seattle, Wash., and David Kreger, of Chicago. The family prefers donations to Pathways Hospice In Sunnyvale. PA I D

OBITUARY


Transitions Alejandro Zaffaroni, scientist and philanthropist, dies at 91 Alejandro Zaffaroni, an innovator in biotechnology and drug delivery systems, and generous humanitarian with close ties to Stanford University, died at home in Atherton on March 1. He was 91. In 2006, Stanford established a $10 million financial aid program for Latin-American students to honor the Silicon Valley executive and his wife Lida. The Alejandro and Lida Zaffaroni Scholarship and Fellowship Program was partly funded by gifts from a group of more than 35 associates who credited him with providing inspiration, mentorship and friendship during the course of their careers. The Zaf-

Isabel Arrabal Isabel Carmen Arrabal, a longtime resident of Palo Alto, died on March 7. She was 96. She was born in Camaguey, Cuba. She and her husband Rolando decided to send their three children to the United States in 1962. They were able to join them in 1963 in Palo Alto.

ANNIVERSARY

faronis were also major donors to the Lida and Alejandro Zaffaroni Breast Imaging Center at the Stanford Cancer Center. “Over the past five decades, a generation of individuals has been inspired by Alex Zaffaroni’s values,” Isaac Stein, former chair of the Stanford University Board of Trustees and a longtime business associate of Dr. Zaffaroni, said in a press release announcing the financial aid program in 2006. “A group of those individuals now have come together to establish this program, to help create an enduring recognition of Alex’s core values at Stanford University.”

A native of Montevideo, Uruguay, Zaffaroni earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Montevideo in 1941. He first came to the United States on a Fulbright Scholarship to the University of Rochester, where he earned a doctorate in biochemistry in 1949. In 1951, he joined Syntex Corp., a small chemical company in Mexico that was involved in steroid research. He played a key role in transforming it into a major pharmaceutical company headquartered in the Stanford Research Park. Eventually, he became president of Syntex Laboratories and the Syntex Research Institute.

A school teacher for 20 years in Cuba, she then worked at Stanford for 20 years, then 15 more at ALZA Corp., retiring at age 80. She enjoyed sewing, making many dresses and knitting blankets for her friends and relatives. She was predeceased by her husband Rolando and her seven

brothers and sisters. She is survived by her daughters, Maria Huix (Luis), Tina Crego (Rick) and Isabel Rodgers (Charles), as well as six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A memorial service was held on Thursday, March 13, at St. Nicholas Church in Los Altos.

Sandy Elmer March 10, 1928 – February 24, 2014

70th Anniversary of Herbert and Peggy Warne Herbert and Peggy Warne celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on March 11. The couple met while studying at the University of Hawaii, and Herbert proposed to Peggy in Honolulu on Valentine’s Day, 1942. The wedding was postponed due to the events of Pearl Harbor, but they married two years later in Normal, Ill. They went on to live in Palo Alto for over 50 years, Herbert later becoming the dean of admissions at the College of San Mateo. Together they have traveled the country and world extensively. They live today near their children in Eskaton Village in Carmichael, Calif., and enjoy using their iPad and playing cards. Their family includes two children, four grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren.

Sandy was raised on a farm on Phillippi Street in Boise, Idaho. After serving in the Army, Sandy attended San Jose State University and was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. Sandy lived in the Hilltop Guest House in San Francisco, where he met Norma, his wife of 50 years. They moved to unincorporated Menlo Park in 1958, helping to establish the Ladera community and raising Allison and Blake in the company of other young families. Sandy and Norma each worked at Stanford University for over 25 years, and participated in and supported Stanford’s educational, cultural and athletic programs, including the Stanford Historical Society. Sandy’s work at Stanford included space planning for the Graduate School of Business and the Law School in the 1960s and 1970s. The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation at Quadras recruited Sandy to serve as the Foundation’s controller. After a decade, Sandy joined Hunk Anderson and the Anderson Collection, where he worked until 2012. Sandy’s love of art, art history and architectural design broadened through his work with the Anderson Collection, as well as his extensive travels with Norma, including annual trips to London’s Theatre District. Sandy spent the last 40 years of his life enjoying the views of Stanford land from his Ladera home. As he wished, Sandy (“Elmo” to his grandsons) died peacefully in his sleep. In honor of his long affiliation with Stanford and the Anderson family, donations in Sandy’s memory may be made to support the programs of the Anderson Collection at Stanford University. Gifts may be directed to: Anderson Collection at Stanford University Jason Linetzky, Director 326 Galvez Street Stanford, CA 94305-6105 Attn: Kathleen Quinn In memory of Norma and Elmer Sandy PA I D

OBITUARY

He was widely considered a pioneer in drug delivery and the field of biotechnology and had a significant impact on the development of Silicon Valley. He founded a number of companies, including ALZA Corp., which was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 2001; Affymax Inc., which was acquired by Glaxo in 1995; Affymetrix; Alexza Pharmaceuticals; Symyx Technologies; and Maxygen. In 1980, he collaborated with three prominent Stanford professors in founding the DNAX Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology, which was sold to Shering-Plough Pharmaceuticals in 1982.

In 1995, President Bill Clinton presented him with the National Medal of Technology — the nation’s highest honor for individual achievement in science and technology. He also served as a member of the Stanford University Hospital Board of Directors and the Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Medicine Advisory Council at Stanford. He is survived by his wife Lida, son Alejandro, daughterin-law Leah, daughter Elisa, and two grandchildren, Alejandro Peter and Charles A. Zaffaroni. A private family service has been held. A memorial service may be held at a later date.

Ray Lawrence Kramer April 25, 1919 – March 6, 2014 Ray Kramer, longtime resident of Palo Alto, passed away quietly in his sleep a month shy of his 95th birthday. Born on a sheep ranch in the North Dakota Badlands, his family left when Ray was 7 to farm in Humboldt County, Iowa. He rode a horse 5 miles to a one-room schoolhouse where at times he was the only pupil in his grade. Always curious, bright, and eager to learn Ray finished assignments quickly and used his spare time tutoring others and reading the encyclopedia from cover to cover. Encouraged by his high school Principal, Ray entered Iowa State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physics. Then he began graduate studies at Princeton University. Exempt from service, he and other physic students, worked on defense research for the War Department during World War II. After the war he was employed at the U.S. Naval Institute in Washington, D.C., followed by three years at Honeywell in Minnesota. Ray brought his wife and four children to Palo Alto in 1958, and worked 20 years for Lockheed Martin — first in the research lab and later as head of Hypersonic Wind Tunnel testing Retired, Ray and his wife, Peggy, travelled extensively. He especially liked visiting ancient sites, natural wonders, and remote areas like Antarctica. Of particular interest for Ray during their journey to the North Pole on a Russian nuclear icebreaker was a tour of the engine room. A lifelong liberal and avid supporter of people’s rights, Ray loved reading about and discussing politics. When younger he enjoyed gardening (his orchids admired and sometimes picked by those passing by) and inventing tools to simplify doing chores. Family and friends will miss his humor and his fascinating stories about rural life in the 20’s and 30’s before electricity and indoor plumbing. His was truly a remarkable life. Ray was preceded in death by his first wife, the mother of his children, Helen; a sister Margie Ulman; and a daughter Margareta. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Peggy; a sister Lillian Hesketh; and his children: Susan Caulk, Paul Kramer, Jackie Schroeder; son-in-law Robert Schroeder and step-son Tom Greeley; five grandchildren and two great-grandsons. At his request no service will be held. Donations in his memory can be made to Planned Parenthood or the charity of your choice. PA I D

Editorial In major test for city, Cal Ave project begins After tree-cutting debacle, city officials hope controversial project can rebuild trust and give ‘second downtown’ its due

W

hat began as a $1.7 million largely grant-funded sprucing up of the area primarily at the east end of the California Avenue business district has grown into an ambitious $7 million rehab of all three commercial blocks between El Camino and the railroad tracks. Jackhammers began pounding away this week in the street opposite Mollie Stone’s, and on Monday afternoon, Mayor Nancy Shepherd and other city dignitaries will break out the ceremonial shovels to officially kick-off the project, which will create significant disruptions through its planned completion at the end of the year. It is the first major renovation of a commercial district streetscape since a similar project downtown more than 15 years ago, and the city has a lot riding on its successful implementation. Such projects are notoriously unwelcomed by merchants during the construction phase, as they justly fear customers will go elsewhere to avoid the area’s construction activity. The city is attempting to mitigate the impacts by limiting construction to one block and one side of the street at a time, creating some replacement street parking, promising lots of signage and marketing support, and by instituting a lunchtime shuttle designed to bring people to the area for lunch from the Stanford Research Park (and without their cars.) These efforts are commendable, but the biggest test may be whether the city has the will and ability to keep the project on schedule and to communicate effectively with the businesses in the California Avenue district as it proceeds. As well-intentioned as the Public Works Department and its contractors may be, they are not skilled at public relations. We hope and trust that Claudia Keith, the city’s new communications director, has been tasked with implementing an outreach plan that leaves no merchant or business owner in the area able to claim they don’t know what’s going on and when disruptions will affect their block. That said, there has been little in the way of direct communications with stores and offices in the business district. The Weekly, which is located just a block off California Avenue, hasn’t received any project updates or guidance about the schedule for street disruptions. The California Avenue project has been met with apprehension by some and great enthusiasm by others ever since it developed momentum and funding some four years ago. While merchants, property owners and nearby residents had sharp differences over whether to reconfigure the traffic lanes from four to two, there was never a shred of data suggesting that eliminating a lane in each direction on this short stretch would have any major impact on traffic congestion. But a few upset merchants challenged the approval process in court, resulting in delays that contributed to increases in costs due to the improving economy and the resulting rising costs of construction. One major reason for cost increases has been the wise addition of the full replacement of the main waterline running down the street, which the city says dates back to the 1940s and would have had to be done soon regardless. The project begins with the waterline replacement, and everyone should understand that this work, while being wrapped into the other improvements for efficiency sake, was unavoidable. As concerning as the construction project is for the merchants of California Avenue, the long-term evolution of the business district should be the greater worry. While improvements to the sidewalks, street furniture and landscaping will all make the street more welcoming and attractive, and therefore beneficial to both businesses and shoppers, when combined with new development in the area they are putting upward pressure on rents, tempting longtime owners to cash out or redevelop, and increasing the demand for parking. Much of the charm of California Avenue is its eclectic collection of businesses, almost all independent and locally owned, that actually serve the neighborhood and city residents, in addition to employees in the area. Preserving these qualities will be much more important and much more difficult than successfully getting through nine months of construction.

Spectrum Editorials, letters and opinions

Affordable housing loss Editor, I have lived in Barron Park for 27 years, and I’ve come to know the residents of the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park in our neighborhood as hardworking people who know and care about each other and the neighborhood, and who are important constituents of Barron Park. I’m very concerned about the possibility that residents of Buena Vista will be dispossessed of the homes they own, their children’s schools, their extended families and community, and their livelihoods if they are forced to leave the area in search of affordable housing. Closing Buena Vista would mean the loss of 108 units of affordable housing with no plan for replacement. This loss would affect not only the Buena Vista residents but our entire city. Where are the people we depend on to provide services, to staff our restaurants and shops, supposed to live? Do we really want a city where everyone who works here has to commute from a distance, causing us ever more traffic congestion and parking problems? In a city inhabited by several billionaires and many multimillionaires, a city which is projecting a tax income bonanza in the years ahead, can we not find a way to preserve this longstanding community in our midst instead of “scraping” it and replacing it with luxury apartments? Surely we can and must do better than that. Don Anderson Alta Mesa Avenue, Palo Alto

About time Editor, We moved to Menlo Park from Seattle in 1955 and that winter we were very surprised to read about San Francisquito Creek flooding parts of Menlo Park, Palo Alto and East Palo Alto. There was agreement that immediate improvements needed to be made to the creek to prevent it from happening again. Fifty-nine years later there is still that worry, and San Francisco Bay Water Quality Control Board has decided to block the improvements planned. Palo Alto agreed to giving up some of the golf course land to help with the creek improvements, temporary reconfiguration of the golf course has been done, stockpiling of dirt has started on the course. Residents in the area still have to worry every time there is a threat of heavy rains and pay high premiums for flood insurance with threats of increases every year. In the meantime, we have raised two daughters, become grandparents and now great grandparents

and hope to see something accomplished in our lifetimes. Requiring many studies and approvals, BART was built, Stanford Shopping Center, Stanford Hospital, AT&T Park, Foster City, Redwood Shores, Devils Slide tunnels, two Half Moon golf courses, San Mateo golf course was closed and rebuilt, and now a new 49ers stadium is being built. The list goes on. Something is very wrong if the San Francisco Board is refusing to allow the flooding problem to be solved by our communities. Don and Bonnie Miller Lois Lane, Palo Alto

Whose best interest? Editor, (The) Daily Post reported that the Palo Alto City Council is considering extending Turner Construction Company’s management to oversee a new contractor for completion of the Mitchell Park Library. But Turner is the same company that oversaw Flintco Pacific’s failure to complete the Mitchell Park project on time! Why would the City Council pay a company $460,000 to do in the future what they have already failed to do? Are there no better

options? Are there possible conflicts of interest? We citizens of Palo Alto trust our Council to manage our tax money responsibly. Actions such as this make us wonder how we should vote in November. Rich Stiebel Talisman Drive, Palo Alto

What online can’t do Editor, In the 1990s, Marc Vincenti, the English teacher of my younger son, returned essays replete with provocative questions, insight-inspiring observations and judicious praise, as well as suggestions for improving wording — all invaluable responses beyond the capability of unresponsive online courses. After becoming a writing and literature tutor who regularly sees student essays marked with sparse and perfunctory comments of English teachers within and outside PAUSD, I ruefully observe that mastery of English cannot be assumed of those who teach it. Superb teachers, like Mr. Vincenti, cannot be replaced by software. Anne Knight Roosevelt Circle, Palo Alto

Off Deadline Palo Alto’s highest-anywhere jobs/housing imbalance causing real problems by Jay Thorwaldson

A

recent series in the San Jose Business Journal cites a 3.13-to-1 jobs-tohousing ratio for Palo Alto, which it calls “the least balanced city in the region by a significant margin.” The closest contender is Burlingame, with a 2.52-to-1 ratio — which coincidentally matches Palo Alto’s ratio of 40 years ago — four decades! Other “high” ratios include Santa Clara at 2.08-to-1 and Menlo Park at 1.96-to-1. It was a real time warp for me to read the carefully researched BJ articles, based on U.S. Census figures published in 2012 and data analysis. The mental time whoosh was because I had written a similar article for the spring 1973 issue of Cry California, the statewide journal of California Tomorrow — an organization that advocated stronger regional and statewide planning from 1961 to its dissolution in 1983. My article was entitled simply, “The Palo Alto Experience.” It cited the running “open space vs. development” battle then enveloping Palo Alto relating to its vast undeveloped foothills lands, stretching up to Skyline Ridge. The article covered regional and national implications of the battle. I have a copy, somewhere, in an old box. But Palo Alto City Historian Steve Staiger found one in his archives. In re-reading the long-ago piece this week I was struck by two things: 1) the similarities between then and now, and 2)

that the jobs/housing ratio has gotten so much worse — despite decades of lip service to local and regional planning, with uncountable hours of time and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on studies. Here are a few paragraphs from that piece that today’s generation of residents and city officials may find familiar: “‘Open Space vs. Development.’ That phrase, overstamped on the cover of a Palo Alto study of its large undeveloped foothill areas, appeared to announce the prize-fight of the decade. In a sense, it did. “In one corner: developers, bulldozing and hammering their way across the landscape. In the other: environmentalists throwing themselves in the path of advancing machinery, or using guerrilla-warfare methods in the courts and on the political field.” I cited Palo Alto’s Foothills Environmental Design Study published in 1971. The report concluded famously that it would be less costly for a city or county with large undeveloped areas in its jurisdiction to buy the land and keep it open rather than pay for streets, utilities, schools, police, fire, parks and other amenities needed for lower-density housing. That finding was revolutionary and became a rallying cry for environmentalists nationwide. Cities and counties began seriously to consider limiting growth. Palo Alto adopted an Open Space Zone, quickly challenged in court by landowners. There were regional and statewide examinations of hitherto permissive growth policies. Growth-control measures appeared in several state legislatures and in Congress. There was an intense focus on the difficulties individual cities faced in trying to chart their own destinies, and “regional planning” became a buzzword that is still

buzzing. Developers, some landowners and trade unions fashioned growth-promoting responses – mostly lobbying and some lawsuits. The Cry California article also mentioned balancing open space with social programs in Palo Alto, and the city’s efforts to foster more low-to-moderate-income housing. Surging rents and home prices were already driving some residents out of town, forcing many to commute long distances from homes or apartments they could afford. The average daily commute at the time was something like 18 miles one way. Traffic jams made commutes long and exhausting, even before gasoline prices started soaring — creating a cruel double economic whammy for lower-wage commuters forced to live far away from their jobs, with social impacts ranging from loss of a community at either end to impacts on couples and families. The 1971 foothills study, known as the Livingston & Blayney Report after the consultants who prepared it, had another significant conclusion: that added housing should occur in areas of town already served by police, fire, schools and utilities. That meant increasing density around downtown Palo Alto, for instance, or elsewhere where acceptable sites could be found. “Acceptable” is the trick word here, as attested by recent discussions about “overdevelopment” and parking overflow in downtown Palo Alto. The Business Journal articles (tinyurl. com/kaxop67) place the jobs/housing ratio at the core of the incredibly high housing prices in Palo Alto and other parts of Silicon Valley. The articles are well worth the reading for anyone who wants to un-

derstand what’s really happening in their community, region or state. “In Silicon Valley, high housing costs, gridlocked traffic and stark income disparities are all major quality-of-life issues exacerbated during boom times,” the lead article states in a nutshell summary. “All three of these obstacles for sustained growth can be traced to one concrete problem: A glaring geographic mismatch between the region’s job centers and housing for an economically diverse workforce.” I personally was a bit surprised by the 3.13-to-1 ratio for Palo Alto. I was surprised that it had been allowed to get that much worse over the four decades, despite all the talk about balancing jobs and housing and the futile-seeming attempts of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) to assign housing goals to communities to alleviate the imbalance even a bit. There’s been more talk than action largely due to neighborhood-level quality-of-life resistance to increased density and from developers who dislike housing-impact fees. That translates to no good place to build housing and no good way to pay for it. Then as now. Then there is the overall economy. The BJ article concludes: “In theory, people will stomach higher costs of living and even commuter gridlock for economic opportunity. How long that theory holds up is a matter with stark implications for the region’s future.” N The full text of the Cry California article can be found at www.paloaltoonline.com/ media/reports/1394726066.pdf.

Papa Ge, Demon of Death (Max Kumangai), visits the female protagonist Ti Moune (Salisha Thomas) in TheatreWorks’ musical, “Once on This Island.”

Fable of star-crossed love hits all the right notes ‘Once on This Island’ a feast of powerful singing, breathtaking choreography by Jeanie K. Smith

R

un, don’t walk, to grab your seats for TheatreWorks’ revival of the Tony Awardwinning musical, “Once on This Island.” With a flawless ensemble, high-energy dance and a moving feast of theatrical spectacle, the outstanding production raises the roof of the Lucie Stern and deserves to sell out every performance. Taking home eight Tonys when it first played Broadway in 1991, the musical by Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music) is based on the novel by Rosa Guy, “My Love, My Love,” which in turn is based on the Hans Christian Andersen

tale of the “Little Mermaid.” The timeless story of love thwarted by prejudice comes to vivid life in island colors and rhythms and spins the ending into a vision of tolerance and forgiveness. Briefly, Ti Moune (Salisha Thomas), orphaned by flood and raised by kind villagers Mama Euralie (Dawn L. Troupe) and Tonton Julian (Berwick Haynes), feels she is destined for something special. When handsome stranger Daniel (Paris Nix) crashes his car near her home, she saves his life with her attentions and even bargains with Papa Ge, Demon of Death (Max Kumangai), promising her life if Daniel is allowed to live.

>ÀŽÊˆÌ>œŽ>

Erzulie, Goddess of Love (Adrienne Muller), looks on as Ti Moune (Salisha Thomas) and Daniel (Paris Nix) share a precious romantic moment.

/ / ,Ê, 6 7 But Daniel, of course, is from the wealthy Beauxhomme family, of French descent, pale and refined. Ti Moune might win his heart, but she can’t overcome generations of prejudice and class distinction to win him as a partner for life. We know all too well how the story must end and grieve again for the sad, seemingly inevitable outcome. Like “Romeo and Juliet,” it’s a tale that needs retelling, because it continues to be true — “starcrossed” love, love that can’t live free due to social strictures — and urges us to rethink our biases and assumptions, asking for love of all stripes to be accepted and celebrated. “Why We Tell the Story,” the final song, reminds us of this important message and even imagines a future in which prejudice has faded, when future generations can love freely, when the sad ending is not inevitable and differences won’t make a fatal difference. “Once on This Island” is the kind of musical TheatreWorks can do well, and here it’s done brilliantly, with a superb ensemble and terrific theatrics. The cast of 11 possesses fantastic voices and dance skills and fills the stage with almost non-stop choreog-

raphy for the entire 90 minutes. Thomas as Ti Moune expertly balances innocence with desire, hope and joy with betrayal and despair, and breaks our hearts with her plaintive, uncomprehending pleas for love. Her powerful voice is matched by her amazing dancing and endless energy. Nix manages to keep Daniel sympathetic in spite of betrayal, partnering well with both Thomas and his other love, Andrea (Michelle Cabinian). Troupe and Haynes are perfectly suited to their parenting roles and deliver a touching trio with Thomas in “Ti Moune.” Kumangai is marvelous as the Demon of Death, snake-like and evil. All ensemble players — Rotimi Agbabiaka, Safiya Fredericks, Omari Tau, Adrienne Muller and Khalia Davis — are equally talented and energetic. All are amazing and fascinating to watch as they inhabit numerous roles and ceaselessly dance the nonstop, breathtaking choreography of Gerry McIntyre. It’s actually difficult to single performers out, since they work together so seamlessly and beautifully. The ensemble is supported by an ever-changing set by Joe Ragey, with moving platforms, trees, columns and backdrops — filling the Stern with colorful spectacle. Costumes by Cathleen

Edwards attractively suit the time and place, delineate character with simple pieces, and enable surprisingly quick changes. The use of masks for gods and for skin color is particularly effective. Jeff Mockus’ sound design doesn’t miss a beat with all the shifting of vocalists within a number, and we can clearly hear performers over the lively pit orchestra led by the incomparable William Liberatore. Don’t miss this outstanding production, one of the rare occasions when every aspect of a performance comes together stunningly. Kudos to director Robert Kelley and his team for knocking this one out of the park.

Eating Out No love for glove law Local bartenders give thumbs-down to new regulation requiring gloves by Tre’vell Anderson

C

gloves than you are with just your bare hands.” Crawford is responding to an amendment to a California retail food-safety law that makes gloves at the bar a requirement. The law’s change, which took effect Jan. 1, bans restaurant workers from handling ready-to-eat food with their bare hands. For bartenders, that means wearing gloves for something as simple as dropping an olive into a martini.

Crawford has been tending bar for eight years and his sentiments reflect the collective voice of local bartenders. “Honestly, I think it’ll be just a big nuisance,” said Sam Bonales, a bartender at Scratch in downtown Mountain View. “It’s going to take the fun out of it,” for both the bartender and the customers. Sara Hernandez at pan-Latin restaurant Cascal across the street agrees. “(People) want their drinks and to be able to interact with the bartender, not, ‘Hold up, wait. I have to go put my gloves on,’” she said. “Make the drinks, get it out and get other people to order stuff,” Hernandez said of the typical bar scene. “It’s a rotating door.” Though Cascal’s restaurant environment is less fast-paced, timeliness with service is an everpresent concern for any bartender. For customers, if bartenders must wear gloves, it could easily lengthen the time it takes to get a drink. Virginia McVeigh, who works as a bartender at downtown Palo Alto’s Greek standout Evvia, doesn’t just knock the law. She has a suggestion for reform: Instead of a flat-out requirement to wear gloves, gloves could be worn during preparation. This is a practice she’s minded since she got her start as a bartender more than 10 years ago. “I believe that gloves should be worn during the preparation of the garnishes and any kind of preparation,” she said, noting that the use of gloves during service times “diminishes the level of service and class.”

6iÀœ˜ˆV>Ê7iLiÀ

ountless people flock to local bars looking to unwind with a beer or other alcoholic drink. But there’s a new regular at the watering holes that won’t get a warm welcome — protective gloves for the bartenders. “Is there a rhyme or reason behind it?” asked Tim Crawford, manager of Francesca’s Sports Bar in Mountain View. “I don’t think so. I think you’re going to cause more problems with the

Sam Bonales, a bartender at Scratch restaurant in Mountain View, carefully pours a glass of red wine for a customer in early March. “When (customers) come here, they don’t want to see a bartender wearing gloves,” McVeigh said. “It also kind of makes us look like we’re an assembly line producing simpler drinks,” a characteristic far from the selection of wine and spirits offered at higher-end Evvia. Hernandez suggests a more practical option: Focus on the actual practices of bartenders as opposed to making them wear gloves. “If there was more attention to cleaning your hands, that would be better than wearing gloves,” she said noting that cleanliness is already an industry standard. She also mentioned that she knows of some locations that make use of tongs or other utensils instead of their hands. Crawford dismisses this option for the same reason as the gloves: timeliness and ease. “It’ll take much longer to stick a pick in an olive with a spoon than with my hands,” he said.

“Our hands are always in water, always wet, always clean,” Crawford said. “(Gloves) are going to retain any residual of anything and I think it’ll to be worse actually. I think what they need to do is go through and look at that and measure the amount of bacteria on your hands at the end of the day and the amount of crap that’s on your gloves. I think you’re going to transfer more with gloves than with your hands.” Such concerns don’t even take into account the difficulty bartenders would face if they “flair.” Flair bartending is the practice of entertaining guests using bar tools and liquor bottles in tricky, juggler-like ways. Hernandez got her start in bartending at restaurant chain TGI Fridays, the home of flair, she said. If she had had to wear gloves then, it would have ruined the show. “It would be so hard to flair,” she said. “You just wouldn’t be able to do it. It would be like a

It’ll be strictly for show.” Fragomeni mentioned another concern with instituting gloves for bartenders. “Really and truly, it’s bad for the environment,” she said. “Think of how many bartenders are out there. Think of how many times we’re going to have to change our gloves a day.”

But bartenders across the state aren’t going down without a fight: They’ve amassed more than 17,000 signatures in online petitions. On Feb. 24, California State Assemblyman Richard Pan, whose committee authored the original law, responded by introducing “emergency legislation” that would lead to the glove law’s repeal. The repeal is on track to be approved before the June 30 deadline to comply with the law — a result that should draw cheers from local bartenders and drinkers alike.

Good for Business. Good for You. Good for the Community.

(Century 16, 20) From a racing movie, we’ve come to expect dumb fun. But the silly action melodrama “Need for Speed” — based on EA’s popular series of video games — drags, and I’m not talking about the races. Manifestly overlong at 130 minutes, “Need for Speed” includes some eye-popping racing scenes of some very pretty high-performance sports cars. But in a world with thousands of cable channels and six “Fast & Furious” movies (with a seventh on the way), fast cars aren’t enough. “Need for Speed” gives it a go, go, go by pulling back on the CGI and staging practical stunt racing, and by casting riding-high actor Aaron Paul in the lead. (The picture has also been postconverted to 3-D, presumably to squeeze some more bucks out of “Breaking Bad” fans who just have to come out and support their boy Paul.) The problem is that the story and the picture’s tone amount to an alternatingly dull or annoying mess of tragic overtones (a little bit of “Noooooooooo!,” a lot of brooding), witless comedy (self-described “locker room” banter), and shoehorned romance (the lovers bonding over maniacal driving). It’s embarrassingly easy to see each plot development coming, like a lone car on an empty highway. And then there’s the fact that the recent death of “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker in a high-speed accident has harshed the vibe of high-speed recklessness on screen, fairly raising the question: “Too soon?”

Paul plays Tobey Marshall, an amateur racer who has recently inherited Marshall Performance Motors from his late father. Unable to keep up on his bank loan payments, Marshall is prone to betting big on street races, especially against his pro nemesis, Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). When Dino murderously “love-taps” off the road the Patroclus to Tobey’s Achilles, Tobey winds up framed, imprisoned for two years (which he deserves anyway for insanely reckless driving), and rage-motivated to win vengeance from Dino. Naturally, this takes the form of getting into underground race “the DeLeon,” in which winner takes all (the cars): $7 million dollars’ worth. The emphasis on money isn’t accidental: Besides serving as blatant advertising for the cars, “Need for Speed” keeps condescendingly underlining how Tobey is the great poor hope — “the blue-collar kid!” crows Michael Keaton’s Monarch, the man behind the DeLeon and apparently the Wolfman Jack of street racing (Keaton’s usually a hoot, but he’s at his most annoying here). Speaking of Wolfman Jack, director Scott Waugh (the Navy SEALS ad “Act of Valor”) ill-advisedly includes nods to superior vehicular movies “American Graffiti,” “Bullitt” and “Speed” — not to mention the “Cannonball Run”-ny plot point forcing Tobey to speed from New York to California in 45 hours. Tobey accomplishes this with love interest Julia (Imogen Poots) — who lamely chides him, “Never judge a girl by her Gucci boots” — mostly riding shotgun (though she’s behind the wheel for offroading in Monument Valley). And so it goes with the bland characterization and the 234mph: “Need for Speed” is like throwing a pile of car parts at the wall to see what’ll stick. Spoiler: nothing. Rated PG-13 for sequences of reckless street racing, disturbing crash scenes, nudity and crude language. Two hours, 10 minutes. — Peter Canavese


Movies "6 Ê 300: Rise of an Empire --1/2 This prequel-sequel-parallel plotline to Warner Brothers’ 2006 hit will appeal mainly to meatheads, but those with a tolerance for over-the-top violence may appreciate it on other levels. One of those levels may be “sexy.” Another level is classical-epic sweep: This is a Homeric blend of legend and myth, with a credible take on glorified Greek attitudes to war that nods to its horrors while gleefully depicting bone-crushings, stabbings and amputations. “300: Rise of an Empire” concerns Themistokles of Athens (Sullivan Stapleton), a politician and general who plies Queen Gorgo of Sparta (Lena Headey) for support in the war against Persian invaders. Since Themistokles slew King Darius of Persia, the Athenian made a formidable enemy of Darius’ son Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). Xerxes hardly needs the added motivation, but Darius’ adoptive daughter Artemisia (Eva Green) goes all Lady Macbeth on Xerxes, prodding him to restyle himself as a god among men. It’s unabashedly hard-”R”-rated, and the fetishization of violence can be off-putting, especially in 3-D. But thanks largely to Green demonstrably having a ball, this strange brew of “Athenian shock combat” and “Abercrombie and Twitch” posing stands little chance of boring audiences. Rated R for strong sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence throughout, a sex scene, nudity and some language. One hour, 20 minutes. — P.C. Tim’s Vermeer --Watching paint dry has never been more fascinating than it is in “Tim’s Vermeer,” a documentary produced by the magicians Penn & Teller. In his feature debut, Teller directs this account of how inventor Tim Jenison labored to recreate a Vermeer painting. In order to prove that Johannes Vermeer (the 17th-century Dutch Master behind works like “Girl with a Pearl Earring”) achieved his near-photo-realistic effects with the aid of technology, Jenison experimented with simple machine designs to find a functional one. The answer, as Jenison sees it, is a type of camera obscura that would have allowed Vermeer to painstakingly paint over a mirrored image of a live tableau. The movie has its elements of suspense: Will the achingly slow process break Jenison mentally, and can a complete amateur at painting produce a work comparable to that of Vermeer? That latter question explains the great offense taken by many art experts: Wouldn’t such a method turn their old master into something of a fraud? Teller and his magician partner Penn Jillette (who serves as narrator and onscreen presence) round up some celebrated folks sympathetic to Jenison’s point of view. The only real knock against “Tim’s Vermeer” is that it has the feel of a television documentary. But the film earns its keep by being informative and briskly entertaining. Rated PG-13 for some strong language. One hour, 20 minutes. — P.C. The Wind Rises ---1/2 “All I wanted to do was to make something beautiful.” So said aeronautical engineer Jiro Horikoshi, whose Mitsubishi A5M and A6M Zero served the Empire of Japan during WWII. Amid some controversy, living-legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki has written and directed his own latest “something beautiful,” this one a hand-drawn fantasia about Horikoshi: “The Wind Rises.” Horikoshi (voiced in the English-language version by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) literally dreams of airplanes. He sets out to study engineering and lands a job at an airplane manufacturer that will build his planes. On this path, he also encounters a young woman named Nahoko (Emily Blunt), who becomes his muse. Nahoko’s struggle with tuberculosis informs one of the story’s deep-set ironies: In her devotion, Nahoko insists upon Horikoshi achieving his dreams of flight, but in the process, the couple loses valuable time to spend with each other. The film is sentimental and sweet, but as much as it deeply understands the artistic mindset of a driven creator, it also acknowledges the darker implications of a genius’ tunnel vision. Despite showcase scenes of Horikoshi’s dreams and test flights, “The Wind Rises” in some ways is Miyazaki’s most grounded film. Much of the film concerns the plodding work — and gentle, if not delicate, soul — required to achieve beauty, another way in which “The Wind Rises,” possibly Miyazaki’s swan song,

skews to stealth autobiography. Rated PG13 for some disturbing images and smoking. Two hours, six minutes. — P.C. Pompeii -1/2 The new action picture “Pompeii” is a bit like its own villain, Mount Vesuvius: massive, full of hot air and brainless. I won’t begrudge it to those who seek nothing more than pure sensation from their movies. This latest account of the 79 A.D. volcanic disaster that laid waste to Roman city Pompeii doesn’t play games. Rather, it serves up large quantities of gladiatorial clashes, disaster-movie mayhem and fleshy bits (rock-hard abs and juicy thighs, as per the PG-13 rating). But in place of actual drama, the screenplay by Janet Scott Batchler & Lee Batchler (“Batman Forever”) and Michael Robert Johnson (“Sherlock Holmes”) actively works to make you remember other dramas you’ve seen, in the hope that narrative shorthand will be enough. Kit Harington and his torso play Milo, who as a wee Celtic boy survived a Roman victory over Celtic rebels only to find himself pressed into slavery and a “career” as a gladiator. Rated PG-13 for intense battle sequences, disasterrelated action and brief sexual content. One hour, 45 minutes. — P.C. RoboCop -Wisely, the new “RoboCop” acknowledges how times have changed since Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original. The 2028 setting of director Jose Padilha’s film has Americans

grappling with the use of advanced “drone” technology: Sure, it’s OK as deployed in the streets of Tehran, but Detroit? Not so much. The weapons-technology giant OmniCorp — as per ruthless CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) — wants to expand into the domestic market, but they’re having trouble bribing the necessary politicians to change the law in their favor. Giving the people what they want, Sellars pursues cyborg technology that will meld ultimate firepower and precision to a consciousness capable of making humane calls about use of force. Intriguingly, much of Joshua Zetumer’s screenplay concerns R&D, marketing meetings and product testing of the idea that eventually becomes “RoboCop”: a construct built around the remains of wounded-in-action cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman of “The Killing”). Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material. One hour, 48 minutes. — P.C. The Lego Movie --It’s just another day in Bricksburg for Emmet Brickowoski (Chris Pratt, in hilariously bubbly mode), an ordinary, regular, generic construction worker Lego “mini-figure” in a disturbingly conformist world. With his “prodigiously empty mind,” Emmet is content to “follow the instructions” by rooting for the local sports team, drinking expensive coffee and singing insidiously infectious pop song “Everything is Awesome!!!” while he works. But a freedom

fighter named Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) informs Emmet he might be “the Special” prophecied by a wizard named Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman). The surreal narrative that follows riffs on “The Matrix,” with its hero getting his mind blown by alternate realities as he comes to terms with being, just maybe, the only one who can save Legokind. Dastardly President Business (Will Ferrell) wields corporate control over everything (including voting machines) and plans to freeze society into the polar opposite of freedom. Armed with “the piece of resistance” and aided by a team of “Master Builders” who “change everything,” Emmet sets off on his Hero’s Journey. Rated PG for mild action and rude humor. One hour, 40 minutes. — P.C.

The new California Avenue will include two traffic lanes instead of four, plus wider sidewalks.

Making a new downtown Will — or should — Palo Alto’s California Avenue be the next University Avenue? by Gennady Sheyner

O

n Aug. 19, 1904, a grocer named Frank Backus joined dozens of merchants and fellow Mayfield residents in asking the Board of Trustees to ban alcohol sales. For Backus and his compatriots, the reasons for the prohibition had at least as much to do with economics as morals. Just north of Mayfield, in the dry, posh and intellectual college town of Palo Alto, an economic boom was taking place, with houses renting for more than $25 a month. In the freshly incorporated town of Mayfield, meanwhile, the only successful businesses were saloons — and their success didn’t exactly spill over to the surround-

ing area. Backus told the Board that Mayfield residents were weary of “renting our cottages for $5 to $6 a month” and watching property values go “down, down, down.” The people of Mayfield, he said, were “tired of having the roughs from all around the country come here, get drunk and raise a row,” according to Ward Winslow’s “Palo Alto: A centennial history.” “We need life and new capital here,” Backus said. “Fortune knocks at every door but once. It is knocking at the door of Mayfield now. If you allow this chance to go by, another may never come.”

Backus prevailed. When the ban kicked in on Jan. 1, 1905, Mayfield officials showed they meant business by arresting every saloon owner who flouted it on New Year’s Day (which is to say, every saloon owner). But it seemed to have the intended effect of making Mayfield’s downtown more like Palo Alto’s. With its competitive spirit well intact, Mayfield went on to construct sidewalks, buy new fire equipment, put numbers on its houses and form the Women’s Improvement Association and a Boy Scouts troop. Fast forward nine decades, and opportunity is once again knocking on the door of Mayfield, now

incorporated into Palo Alto and better known as the California Avenue business district. After four years of planning, designing and litigating, the city is preparing to break ground this month on a massive renovation of California Avenue, a streetscape project that includes widening sidewalks, creating two new public plazas, replacing an old fountain with a new fountain sculpture and, most controversially, reducing driving lanes from four to two. On Feb. 24, the City Council approved a $6.9 million contract with Redgwick Construction company to commence the streetscape project, which has been snowballing both in scope and price since 2010. (See sidebar on page 29.) On Monday, the city will officially kick off the streetscape project with a ground-breaking ceremony. Redgwick officials took their first tour of the onceand-future downtown last week to survey the site. In the coming days, workers will begin replacing a 74-year-old water main. After that, construction crews will start tearing up the streets and sidewalks, sprucing up the landscaping, installing new benches and newsracks, enhancing crosswalks and re-striping lanes — work that is expected to stretch until the end of the year.

ince the time of Frank Backus, California Avenue has been as remarkable for what hasn’t changed as for what has. Saloons have given way to salons, but the passionate skepticism, artisan leanings and underdog sensibilities of the business district have scarcely diminished. There is a strong sense around Califor-

nia Avenue, as elsewhere in the city, that the business district is still playing second fiddle to the affluent and chic University Avenue. Merchants have plenty of good reasons to feel neglected. The surface of the four-lane strip is scarred with tarry lines; sidewalks are crumbling; the birdbath fountain near the entrance to the Caltrain Station has been dry for years; and no one ever refers to University Avenue as “the other downtown.” Adding injury to insult, in September 2009, California Avenue became ground zero for what was later labeled the “Tree Massacre.” The city’s Public Works staff, hastily and with scarcely any outreach to the wider community, chopped down 63 holly oaks on California Avenue within two days. The immediate outpouring of outrage was so vehement that then-Councilman John Barton called the flood of emails he received the most uncivil he had ever seen. (One city arborist took it a step further and, in an internal memo, complained that “it sounds like the residents are about to lynch the arborist.”) City Manager James Keene and thenPublic Works Director Glenn Roberts immediately issued public apologies, launched an internal investigation and adopted new rules for future tree removals, including extensive outreach. For the project’s many supporters, the ambitious streetscape project is a way to make up for both the decades of neglect and the tree debacle of 2009.

Jack Morton, president of the California Avenue Business Association, predicts that the avenue will lose the small-town flavor that residents have long enjoyed. on California Avenue, said he is one of many building residents who are looking forward to the project’s completion. Burke, an Illinois native who moved to the area in 2007, became civically engaged in the project in 2009, when he came home from a business trip and saw the street denuded of trees. On Sept. 21 of that year, he was one of several residents to express concern about the clear-cutting, noting that he

hadn’t received a single notification from the city. He described the operation as “mind-boggling” and said the street “looked like we’ve been bombed.” Now, Burke eagerly awaits the changes. The tree disaster, he told the Weekly, now appears it may have been a blessing in disguise. “What it did was raise the awareness of the project: Now that we screwed up this bad, how do we get it right?” Burke said.

On a recent tour of the commercial strip, Burke pointed out the many existing elements of California Avenue that he won’t miss: There’s the lonely fountain (“The thing has been off for like five years.”); the skeletal bike racks that look like giant coat hangers fused together; the bike lockers at the Caltrain station, which will be moved to make way for a new (continued on page Îä)

ecent history has demonstrated that both deadlines and cost estimates for large construction projects can be frustratingly fungible in Palo Alto. The city’s Mitchell Park Library and Community Center, when completed, will be more than two years behind schedule and millions of dollars over the budget Palo Alto officials had in mind when they awarded the bid in 2010. But optimism reigns when it comes to California Avenue’s streetscape project. Despite a climate of skepticism in the business community and a price tag that has risen dramatically, the City Council has been unanimous and enthusiastic about the changes at every step of the approval process. Even the winning bid — which pegs the cost of replacing the old fountain near the Caltrain station at $647,000 (compared to the city’s estimate of $70,000) and the cost of planting and irrigation at $114,140 (versus the city’s estimate of $43,992) — was accepted by the council without dissent last month, despite some apprehension about staff’s request for covering unforeseen expenses. While city officials have been marching in lockstep on this item, opinions around California Avenue have been far more mixed. As the council considered approving the project in late 2010 and early 2011, merchants mobilized against reducing the driving lanes from four to two, with owners from local businesses such as European Cobblery, Keeble & Shuchat and La Bodeguita warning about the traffic nightmares it would cause. A representative from Mollie Stone’s supermarket argued at a City Council meeting in February 2011 that if the lane reduction ends up limiting people’s access to the stores and reducing sales, “The community would lose a beloved local business.” Former Vice Mayor Jack Morton made a similar point about area restaurants, warning the council just before the vote that the lane reduction “may undermine the viability and vitality of the restaurant area.” “If we’re wrong about the way traffic flows, we will destroy a business district,” said Morton, who is now the president of the California Avenue Business Association. But the council views the streetscape project as a once-ina-lifetime chance to bring fortune to the door of California Avenue. Though improvements

had been discussed for years, it was a $1.2 million grant from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority in the fall of 2010 that put the project’s pedal to the metal. At the time, the city had expected to kick in another $550,000 in local funds for a streetscape revamp that was then limited to the lane reduction, improved signage, new benches and newsracks, and better crosswalks. Since then, the project has more than quadrupled in price as its scope has snowballed and the regional construction climate has heated up, driving up bids. In February 2011, as the council took its first unanimous vote to support the project, Councilwoman Karen Holman and Councilman Greg Schmid proposed exploring wider sidewalks with the goal of creating a “sense of place” on California Avenue. “If we’re going to do this, we should do it optimally,” Holman said at the Feb. 14, 2011, meeting. “It might be worth some additional investment.” Councilman Pat Burt said the streetscape project will be “one of the best things that has happened in this town for a long time.” Councilman Greg Scharff concurred and pointed out that the California Avenue improvement is “for the long term.” “We should be very careful about being penny-wise and pound-foolish and not getting the optimal results for California Avenue while we’re doing it,” Scharff said. “I think that would be a huge mistake.” The city has been aggressively avoiding penny-wisdom ever since. The additional investment in sidewalks jumped from an estimated $700,000 earlier in the process to roughly $1.15 million after staff determined that redoing the drainage and making further sidewalk enhancements between Ash and Birch streets would be more complex (and hence expensive) than expected. No one on the council thought this was a particularly big deal. And no one blinked in March 2013, when members unanimously agreed to spend another $1.2 million to replace all the streetlights on California Avenue, raising the budget to more than $4 million. At every juncture, the feeling was that if the city was going to swing, it might as well swing for the fences. “I think there are few times that you can spend money more (continued on page Σ)

The revised streetscape plan will add a host of traffic-calming measures, including raised midblock crosswalks and bulb-outs with landscaping. Intersections with four-way stops will get leftturn lanes to minimize traffic backup. There will be new bench-

es, kiosks, newsracks and parking spots for bikes. There will also be two new plazas, one by Park Boulevard near the Caltrain station fountain, and another â&#x20AC;&#x153;flexibleâ&#x20AC;? plaza on Birch Street, which would accommodate an expansion of the California Avenue farmers market on Sundays. Burke acknowledged that there is some skepticism in the area but said most of the residents in his complex look forward to the changes. They expect the project to both raise their property values and create for them a more walkable neighborhood. City staff members have made

a similar argument in support of the project. Thomas Fehrenbach, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development manager, cited at a Feb. 14, 2011, City Council meeting various comparable streetscape projects, including one on Valencia Street in San Francisco. He said 37 percent of the merchants on the street saw sales improve in the years following the project and none saw declines. Furthermore, 73 percent thought the street became more attractive and 65 percent said safety had improved. The project will create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sense of place-making,â&#x20AC;? Fehrenbach said, which will entice people to â&#x20AC;&#x153;stay

a little longer and spend a little more money.â&#x20AC;?

I

f there is one thing that just about all supporters and opponents agree on is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see too much development on the avenue, though there is little consensus on what exactly that means. Burke said some some growth is inevitable but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hate to see retail replaced with office buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a point at which too much density is too much density. I definitely donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see us overdeveloped,â&#x20AC;? Burke said. Former Vice Mayor Jack Mor-

ton, who is now the president of the California Avenue Business Association, shares this concern. In an interview, he warned that the small-town flavor of California Avenue is dying out as money and denser buildings arrive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a trend that the streetscape project will likely accelerate. He predicted that within the next decade, many of the one- and twostory buildings on the avenue will make way for three- and four-story buildings; rents will skyrocket; and the kinds of small businesses that the avenue currently boasts will disappear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now bring 65,000 people

They’ll just simply densify, and the community will have to bear the burden.” The changes have already started. As the Weekly reported last week, longtime businesses Bargain Box and Avenue Florist are expecting to leave California

Avenue in the coming months because of a recent change in ownership of their building. The property, at 341-7 California Ave., was purchased by a corporate entity called 341 Cal Partners LLC, and plans are underway to extensively refurbish it. Down the street, Cho’s Mandarin Dim Sum is also on its way out. The owner of the dimly lit

hole-in-the-wall received a notice in January informing him that he had 60 days to leave — a deadline that arrives on March 16. Building owner Sue Ross told the Weekly at the time that she plans to gut and renovate the building, making it more like the Michelinrated Baume next door. That restaurant arrived in 2010 and offers dishes such as “deconstructed

lem; we had VTA grant funding eligible; and we went and pursued it. The council rightfully saw (that) when we got that, it’s a great start, but. boy, if we had more, we can accomplish a whole lot more.” Then came the water main. Last summer, the Utilities Department determined that time is ripe to replace the corroded water line under California Avenue, which was installed 74 years ago and has had recurring leaks, according to a recent staff report. Not wishing to tear up the freshly repaved streets, the Utilities Department raced to get the main replaced before the construction was set to begin. When it didn’t get the bids it was seeking, the replacement of the water main became another component of the California Avenue streetscape project. Initially, the cost of the main replacement was estimated at $400,000. It was later revised to $1.2 million. Caution turned to concern — momentarily — on Feb. 24, when staff presented to the council for approval a $7.1 million contract with the company Redgwick Construction, a sum that included $900,000 for unexpected contingencies (15 percent of the construction sum). Even after all the adjustments — the wider sidewalks, the new water main and a fountain sculpture to replace the once charming and long-neglected “birdbath” fountain — the $6.2-million construction bid (minus the contingency) was $1.2 million more than city engineers had expected to spend when they requested the proposals. After a brief discussion, coun-

cil members agreed to reduce the contingency amount to $620,000. Kniss cited the example of Mitchell Park in stressing the need to keep a close eye on the California Avenue budget. Klein pointed to the wide disparity in numerous construction categories between engineer estimates and Redgwick’s bid (in the “general” cat-

wisely than this time,” Councilwoman Liz Kniss said during the streetlights discussion. Others concurred. This is, after all, a rare chance to transform the charming but age-old business strip into something more like glamorous and happening — something like University Avenue, the city’s prominent downtown artery, or Mountain View’s popular and recently revitalized Castro Street. “This has become a big commitment to a district,” Burt said shortly before the streetlight vote. “It’s a nice 50-year kind of a project, and it’s going to be an important decision.” Councilman Larry Klein was more cautious than his colleagues. After questioning staff about the rising costs of sidewalk widening, Klein asked if there are “any other areas where you think we may have underestimated?” City Manager James Keene said, “There’s nothing in the near-term I can see we’d be coming back for,” but acknowledged that it’s possible costs could rise during construction. Keene also told the council that the grand plan for California Avenue didn’t exactly start out as a grand plan but morphed out of a grant application, which helps explain the constant budget adjustments. “We’ve been opportunistic on this whole project,” Keene said. “We didn’t sit down with a grand design. We knew we had a prob-

B

ut from the city’s perspective, the area is uniquely qualified for an injection of density, particularly if it includes small apartments for high-tech workers and fresh startups to fill up what they hope will become the city’s next “tech corridor” on Park Boulevard. The California Avenue area is the only part of Palo Alto that the city has designated as a “preegory, the figures were $190,000 and $952,000, respectively; for replacing an aged water main, the figures were $400,000 and $1.2 million). The explanation from Chief Transportation Official Jaime Rodriguez — that Redgwick is still waiting for estimates from its subcontractors and just “dumped” these numbers into its bid — did

ferred development area,” a title that makes it eligible for grant funding relating to development projects. Because of its location, between the Caltrain station and El Camino Real, California Avenue is seen by planning commissioners, planning staff and the council as ripe for growth. Planning Commissioner Michael Alcheck summed up this view in November, when he described California Avenue as “an epicenter” and said that the sooner the city starts to appreciate it as such, the better. He encouraged his colleagues “to think about high-density and medium-density as not necessarily a negative thing.” “When people say real estate is about three things — location, location, location — this is the kind of thing we’re talking about,” Alcheck said. In that sense, the streetscape project is emblematic of the broader effort to create a new identity for California Avenue, an effort that’s been on planners’ minds for years. In 2006, the city created a special zoning overlay that allows developers of mixed-use projects — ones that combine office, retail and/or residential space in the same building — near the Caltrain station to build more densely. The so-called “transitoriented development” overlay ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÎÓ®

little to reassure Klein about the budget differential. “Are we OK with the idea that they might end up making a pretty good profit in that category?” Klein asked. Minutes later, the council answered the question in the affirmative as it voted to approve the contract with no dissent. N

In another possible sign of things to come, eatery Chez Franc has recently moved into 415 California Ave., a building once occupied by Know Knew Books.

The construction contract for the California Avenue Streetscape Project is nearly $2 million more than the city’s $4.97 million estimate. City staff say that it is due in part to a booming construction climate and in part because the contractor, Redgwick Construction, is still awaiting firm cost estimates from subcontractors.

The lunch crowd walks down California Avenue on Tuesday.

Nothin’ but lunch Despite city’s plans, tech employees question affordability, desirability of California Avenue by Sue Dremann

A

vision of Palo Alto’s California Avenue and its environs as a mecca for high-tech employees was met with limited enthusiasm this week by the very type of workers the city hopes to attract. California Avenue’s streetscape renovation, which will begin this month, is part of a broad plan to bring more technology firms, mixed-use buildings and dense housing to Palo Alto’s “second downtown.” But tech workers walking along Park Boulevard on their way to lunch on California Avenue have yet to catch that vision. They said they likely would not live in the housing planned for near their offices, owing to the high costs in Palo Alto. “Just because (we work in) high tech doesn’t mean we have affordable rent or transportation,” said Josephine Lee, revenue team lead at Medallia, a Park Boulevard company that creates software to track and improve customer experience. AOL software engineers Phong Nguyen and Carl Valencia said they would like to see substantially lower rents through increased housing supply. But they doubted that would happen. To accomplish that goal, said David Friedland, an engineering manager at Groupon, Palo Alto would have to allow massive amounts of high-rise housing, including 50-story apartment buildings. Zach Steinkamp, a Groupon software-engineering manager, credited mass transportation

and job opportunity — not local amenities — for bringing him to Palo Alto. Locating tech companies near mass transit — in particular Caltrain — is “a huge part of why I work in Palo Alto,” the San Jose resident said. Steinkamp agreed that, because of high rents, he would not move to the California Avenue district even if apartments are built. What workers do want is convenience, affordability and vibrancy, many said. If the city wants a thriving California Avenue area, workers want amenities as close as possible. In order to get to California Avenue, many walk or bike along Park from south of the Oregon Expressway underpass — a trek some said is dangerous due to a lack of crosswalks. They would like to see restaurants and other services nearer where they work, or offices located along the avenue near stores. The singular, most consistent draw to California Avenue remains food. Like spawning salmon, each day between noon and 1:30 p.m. employees flock to the avenue’s eateries and coffee spots. They want more — faster, more convenient, affordable and recognizable, they said. Some want food trucks parked in empty lots; others want good but reasonably priced restaurants to take their dates to. They want meeting places and ethnic cuisine: pho restaurants, other Vietnamese food, tapioca drinks and ice cream. Nothing fancy,

Page 32ÊUÊ>ÀV…Ê£{]ÊÓä£{ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

they said. The walk isn’t bad, but it isn’t convenient. They want restaurants and coffee houses on Park, they said. “We used to have coffee in the AOL building — Blue Bottle — but they left us,” said Lisa Hern, client relationship manager at Intapp. She would like to see a Philz Coffee move to Park, she added. Overall, most employees said they are satisfied with services along California Avenue, but they rarely consider the area for much else other than lunch. Most stores on the avenue are too expensive, they said. “It’s rare to use other stores. Some people go (to California Avenue) for happy hour. But there’s not much to do,” Lee said. Some workers said they’d like a Paul Martin’s American Grill restaurant to meet at for happy hour, such as the one at The Village at San Antonio Center in Mountain View. Joey Young, senior revenue accountant at Medallia, said many restaurants along California are too pricey for a dinner date. Also, California doesn’t have the cache of University Avenue, where many workers said they like to meet. Attracting their interest will also take some sprucing up of California Avenue. “The exteriors don’t make it appealing. It doesn’t make me want to come here. We just go to specific (restaurants) we know are good,” Lee said. N

has resulted in the three-story Birch Plaza, which includes eight townhouses and office space, and a much smaller office-andresidential building at 420 Cambridge Ave. And last month, the city’s Planning and Transportation Commission endorsed a new “concept plan” for the entire business district, stretching south to the area around Fry’s Electronics. The document, which is in effect a new vision for the California Avenue area, will become part of the city’s Comprehensive Plan and includes as its main components bike enhancements, mixeduse projects and denser buildings near the train station. Not that developers need too much encouragement to come to California Avenue, where growth has been steady for years and is now surging. Large developments such as Birch Plaza, Park Plaza (a mixeduse project at 175 Park Blvd.), a new three-story office building at 260 California Ave. and the block-long complex around Equinox Gym a few blocks south all have won city approval. Park Plaza alone will bring more than 100,000 square feet of new development, including 82 apartments. Across El Camino, things are also about to get busy. Stanford University is preparing to construct 180 housing units on California Avenue as part of its 2005 agreement with the city. Work is also set to commence soon on the College Terrace Centre, a threestory development that the council approved in December 2009 but that languished until recently because of funding problems. Once built, the project will include 45,000 square feet of office space, eight units of affordable housing and an upgraded grocery store to occupy a spot once filled by JJ&F Market. Not all proposed projects are guaranteed to come to fruition. There is 2755 El Camino Real, a four-story office building proposed for a former parking lot at one of the city’s busiest intersections, a corner of Page Mill Road. The project, which requested a

controversial “planned community” zoning, is suspended for now while the city revises its rules for planned-community projects. In December, developer Jay Paul Company withdrew one of the largest “planned community” applications in the city’s history — for a 311,000 development at 395 Page Mill Road, next to the AOL headquarters. That development, a source of anxiety for land-use watchdogs and Ventura neighborhood residents, would have brought more office space to the area than Palo Alto’s entire downtown has seen in 30 years. In withdrawing its application, Jay Paul cited the “political climate,” a reference to recent grassroots acrimony over new developments.

E

ven without the Jay Paul development — or the streetscape project — the gap between Palo Alto’s original downtown and its “other” downtown is already narrowing. The California Avenue area brought in roughly $1 million in tax revenues last year. That’s still about a third of downtown’s total, but at the same time, California Avenue is the only section of the city that has seen growth in every quarter since 2010. The district’s revenue in the spring of 2013 was 24 percent higher than in the spring of 2010, according to a report from the city’s consultant, MuniServices. The number of high-tech workers in the area is also on the rise, with companies like Skype and Groupon opening offices. If there’s any sure sign of growth, it can be seen in the problems that come with expansion. Residents in surrounding neighborhoods have been watching their normally sleepy blocks fill up with commuter cars during business hours. Following in downtown’s footsteps, citizens from Ventura and Evergreen Park have recently undertaken their own block-by-block counts of parked cars, with the goal of helping the city diagnose the growing problem and come up with a solution. Former councilman Morton is hardly alone in feeling like the ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÎ{®

City to host ground-breaking Monday

A Great Place for Get-togethers Happy Hour s Catering s Gift Certificates Private Dining s Meeting s Banquet Rooms

Palo Alto Mayor Nancy Shepherd and other officials will host a ceremonial ground-breaking ceremony on Monday, March 17, at 4 p.m. to launch the California Avenue Transit Hub Corridor Streetscape Improvement and Water Main Replacement Project. The event will take place at the plaza in the 361-371 block

of California Avenue (in front of Starbucks) and will feature visual displays of the completed project. The public is invited. A timeline of the construction phases is nearly complete and will be available soon, according to a city press release. The scope of the project includes beautifying the

streetscape with wider sidewalks and other amenities, as well as replacement of the water main from El Camino to the Caltrain station. The project is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The city has posted more information, renderings and signups for regular updates at www. cityofpaloalto.org/calave. N

Avenue, noting that the nearby Ventura neighborhood is becoming as congested with cars as the infamously inundated Professorville neighborhood downtown. Downtown already has a parking crisis, he said, and California is heading in the same direction. “If we do nothing and don’t build a California Avenue garage, that’s on us,” Scharff said at the meeting of the council’s Infrastructure Committee. “I think that would be shame on us.” The garage discussion will continue to unfold in the next year or two, as the council continues to winnow down its long list of infrastructure priorities. But in the meantime, Palo Alto staff is taking immediate steps to reduce the impact of construction on area businesses. A new shuttle will be introduced to ferry workers from Stanford Research Park to California Avenue during lunch time. New parking spots will be made available on Birch to compensate for loss of parking in areas where work is underway. The city has also agreed not to close more than one traffic lane per block at a time and to limit construction to the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a “quiet period” between 11:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. Staff has also made some design changes to the project, including a right-turn lane on California Avenue leading to El Camino and a left-turn lane leading into Mollie Stone’s, near Park. Both adjustments seek to reduce traffic backups when there is otherwise just one lane in each direction. Early signs show that these actions, along with the project’s evolution, have helped alleviate merchants’ apprehension.

After two years of battling the city, critics have seemingly learned to stop worrying and love, or at least accept, the streetscape project. In March 2013, before the council voted to install all new streetlights on California Avenue, Terry Shuchat addressed members and spoke in support of the action. Shuchat, who owns four buildings on California Avenue and whose camera store, Keeble & Shuchat, has been an avenue anchor for nearly half a century, had been vehemently opposed to the lane reduction and had sued the city to stop the project. But all the add-ons had him echoing the Beatles and urging more investment. “I have been a vocal opponent of the redo of California Ave., but it’s getting better all the time with more money, more benefits coming into it,” Shuchat said. “I’m totally in favor of the lighting.” Jessica Roth of European Cobblery, who in 2010 urged the regional Metropolitan Transportation Commission to withhold grant funds from the streetscape project, now urged the council not to do “the bare minimum.” “Do it right, rather than a lowbudget or an incomplete job,” Roth said. “We hope in the end the project will be worth the impact that it will have on our businesses. Let’s make it a complete beautification.” Mike Stone, the co-owner of grocer Mollie Stone’s, said in a recent interview that while he is concerned about construction impacts, he no longer fears that the reduction of lanes will create horrendous traffic jams. “I think once it’s done, it’s going to be great if California Avenue can realize the intent of what the city wants to come out with, whether you want to compare it to University Avenue or to (Mountain View’s) Castro Street,” Stone said. “It will be more consumerfriendly, and I think the neighborhood and the city will appreciate it when the final project comes out.” N Staff Writer Gennady Sheyner can be emailed at gsheyner@ paweekly.com.

current council has been a little too eager about allowing new development and not eager enough about addressing the consequences of development. Nor are his concerns new: As plans for the streetscape renovation were developed, 55 businesses petitioned the lane-reduction idea, and area merchants and residents filed two lawsuits challenging the city’s traffic analysis and charging the council with violating state law in approving the project. All that is past now, but some of the worry over a lack of foresight lingers. When the council discusses building new parking garages for the city, it focuses on University Avenue, even though the level of development around California Avenue now dwarfs what’s happening downtown. While a study to gauge downtown’s capacity for new development is being looked at, California Avenue is the subject of a concept plan whose policies “encourage development at the higher end of the allowed density range.” For Morton, this is concerning. “We wish the city had dealt with the parking issues prior to densifying the area, but that’s not what we tend to do in Palo Alto,” Morton said. “We tend to densify and then bemoan the lack of parking.” Some on the council agree. On Jan. 29, Councilman Greg Scharff spoke in favor of exploring a new garage on California

Handyman Brett Robinson replaces an exterior light fixture outside a home in Redwood City in early February.

T

he perfect utopian home would be something like this: light bulbs that never went out, living room paint that remained forever crisp and vibrant, drains that never backed up and doors that never got stuck. Meanwhile, back in reality, these debatably minor annoyances are all too common and require the necessary time and skill set to fix. Insert handymen. A handyman is a homeowner’s secret weapon against the pesky manifestations of wear and tear. Often having the knowledge base of a general contractor, according to Palo Alto resident Richard Alexander, handymen charge significantly less while maintaining the value level contractors guarantee. “Many contractors jack up the prices just because it’s Palo Alto,” he said. “Though many people are trying to buy their way out of a problem, I’m interested in value.” Alexander’s go-to handyman

Salvador Magana provides that value. Magana has been a handyman for almost 14 years. Trained under a general contractor, his skill set fits a variety of jobs. For Alexander’s 1935 Tudor-style home,

‘There’s this need for somebody who does things that a homeowner doesn’t feel comfortable doing and a contractor doesn’t want to touch.’ —Brett Robinson, owner of Poof Done Magana has replaced an exterior rafter and indoor flooring and reseated a toilet. Alexander has also

hired Magana at his office building where he repaired a wall and rehung photos that had been incorrectly done by someone else. Others have also employed Magana to paint rooms, install crown molding, baseboards and cabinets and to put together furniture purchased from Ikea. He also has experience with exterior projects including fences, decks and arbors. “Dream it and I build it,” Magana said of his construction skills for the creative genius inside every homeowner. Alexander said everything he has had Magana do “came out perfectly,” and the price, which Magana sets based on a consultation, is reasonable. Brett Robinson, owner of Poof Done, says he’s been fixing things all of his life, but not professionally until he started Poof Done in October 2012 after selling his educational publishing company. He was attracted to this career choice after noticing a rather basic need. “There’s this need for somebody who does things that a homeowner doesn’t feel comfortable doing and

a contractor doesn’t want to touch,” Robinson said. “Most of the things I do are people’s to-do list.” Denise Pitsch knows such a predicament all too well. The Addison Avenue resident had “a lot of little things” and “stuff that could be put off” on her to-do list. After being referred to Poof Done by members of her neighborhood association, she has been pleased with the work Robinson has completed installing lights and recaulking her sink. Robinson also has experience installing home workout equipment, solving electrical issues and fixing door-related problems. He also specializes in childproofing homes for families. Charging by the hour, he says he’s like a magician. “That’s the way you want things to happen,” he said of naming his business Poof Done. “Say poof and then it’ll be done.” Palo Alto homeowner Olenka Villarreal says that at one point she had “a laundry list of things that don’t seem to get done.” She hired Edgar Bernal, a handyman of 13 years, to help her with that list. It included fixing broken light fixtures, painting her entire home and, during the holidays, hanging up her Christmas lights. “He did a great job and he’s a very nice man,” she said, noting her ability to even call on him for small things like fixing a vacuum cleaner she originally bought at Sears. Bernal got his handyman start after working for a general contractor when he began getting referrals for small projects. Since then, he has done a variety of work for homes in Palo Alto.

“I like to have a consultation with the homeowner first so that we can discuss what and how they want it done,” Bernal said. Depending on the consultation, and the size and scope of the project, he will set a price either by the hour or the project, taking into account the homeowner’s preferences. One of the biggest jobs he has completed involved the remodeling of a bathroom including tile work and extending the facility. He can also install cabinets, replace Sheetrock and do plumbing and electrical work. Used often by Realtors to help get a house

ready for sale, according to Villarreal, Bernal is highly recommended. “I never say no,” he said with a laugh. “I even take care of dogs.” When considering a handyman, price is often the most important factor. Many handymen charge by the hour, often starting near $45 per hour, but the price is fluid depending on what needs to be done, the materials required and the availability of both the handyman and the homeowner. Project-based pricing is also expected for more laborious activities like painting a room, installing cabinets or repaving a driveway and can run anywhere between $75 and $300.

A Fresh Look

BUILDING PERMITS

Add drama with simple painting techniques by Kit Davey

I

f you are tired of your neutral walls and feel the urge to experiment, you can create subtle-todramatic effects with a little paint and some imagination. Simple paint tricks. The creative use of paint can be a cost-effective and fun way to enhance the beauty of any room. Try one of these simple tricks: ■ Pick a predominant color in your color scheme and paint one wall in the room that color (or a tint or tone of the color) and the rest in a warm neutral. The wall you pick should not have too many windows, doors or other cut out areas, or the effect of the color will be lessened. If the room is long and narrow, pick one of the short walls to paint in a different color to decrease the apparent length of the room. To draw attention to the room’s focal point (such as a beautiful view or the fireplace), paint that wall in an intense color to draw the eye to it. Counterbalance a wall with heavy furniture against it by painting the opposite wall in a different color. ■ Paint all four walls in a different color and the ceiling white. To create a feeling of power and dynamism, use paints in highly saturated colors. For a subtle and soothing contrast use pastels.

■ Leave the walls white but paint the door a different color. You might even paint the door frame in another color. Try a red door in a primary-colored child’s room or a peach-colored door in a guest room done in country style. ■ If your walls are white, and you feel the room needs more animation, try creating a striped wallpaper-like effect. Paint alternating vertical stripes in a compatible neutral, or a color in your scheme, 6 to 10 inches wide, from floor to ceiling. ■ Create a chair-rail effect by painting the wall, from the floor to about 3 or 4 feet high, in a color from your scheme, and white or another color above. Homes in Colonial Mexican cities like Merida and Oaxaca are known for the brightly colored exteriors painted in just such a fashion. This technique is also used in many American restaurants to hide soil and would work well for the same reason in a child’s room. Random patterns. I don’t care for wallpaper, but I love the effect created by random patterns in paint. You can pick any motif and place it willy-nilly all over your walls. ■ Choose an image in your bedspread, from a piece of artwork, or from an architectural detail in the room, for example, a flowerpot, a section from an antique quilt, fire engines, lightning bolts, teacups, maple leaves, stars, an outline of your dog’s paw print, etc. You can also look in magazines and art books for ideas. Draw an outline of the image on a piece of cardboard, cut it out using an X-Acto knife and

use it as a tracing template. Trace the image in pencil onto your walls in whatever random or regular pattern appeals to you. Erase and re-trace as necessary. Use acrylic paints to fill in the motif. ■ Leave the walls neutral, but create a border just below the ceiling and/or above the baseboards using the technique described above. ■ Use a paintbrush and paint freeform images or squiggles directly onto the walls: spirals, petroglyphs, fish, clusters of polka dots, etc. ■ Do something we wanted to do as kids: Use your hand, or one of your kid’s hands, as a stamp, and make handprints in one or more colors all over the walls. ■ Visit www.Instructables.com, or check out a book from the library and learn how to make and paint your own stencil pattern. For skilled painters. If you’re up for an even artier effect, you can create your own mural or trompe d’oeil. A few simple ideas: Paint blue sky and clouds on your ceiling, a shuttered window and landscape beyond in a windowless room, bookshelves filled with interesting objects along a long hall, a jacket and hat hanging from a coat hook by your back door or scenes from nursery rhymes in your infant’s bedroom.

LADY OAKS FALL . . . A third straight trip to the NAIA Division II Women’s Basketball National Championships was not a charm for Menlo College, as the No. 4-seeded Lady Oaks dropped a 77-72 decision to No. 5 seed Huntington (Ind.) on Thursday in Sioux City, Iowa. Menlo (25-6) held a 23-6 lead before letting it get away. The teams were tied at 69 in the last minute before the Foresters (24-8) pulled away. Menlo shot 53.9 percent from the field (28 of 52) but suffered 20 turnovers. Huntington made more free throws (23) than the Lady Oaks attempted (15). Menlo raced out to a double-digit lead less than six minutes after the opening tip. Two-time California Pacific Conference Player of the Year Jolise Limcaco dominated during that stretch. She piled up nine of her team-high 18 points in fewer than 5 1/2 minutes. Menlo still led, 39-29, at the break, but an 18-4 Huntington run that ended midway through the second half put the Foresters in the lead. Menlo, which was held without a field goal in the final three minutes, was led by the 18 points from Limcaco. Junior Laurel Donnenwirth had a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds.

STANFORD HONORS . . . Stanford sophomore Mariah Stackhouse is one of eight women golfers named to represent the USA in the 2014 Curtis Cup Match, set for June 6-8 at St. Louis Country Club in Missouri. The United States Golf Association (USGA) made the announcement Thursday. Stackhouse, 19, has four collegiate wins, including the 2014 UC Irvine Invitational that earned her a spot in the LPGAís 2014 Kia Classic field. . . . Stanford gymnast Chris Turner was named a finalist for the Nissen-Emery Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top senior gymnast, as announced Wednesday by the College Gymnastics Association. Turner is one of nine finalists for the prestigious honor and is Stanford’s 21st nominee . . . The awards rolled in for Stanford setter James Shaw this week as he has been tabbed the Sports Imports/AVCA Men’s Division I-II National Player of the Week and the MPSF Player of the Week. Shaw, a sophomore, directed a Cardinal offense that hit .441 in its wins at No. 4 Pepperdine and No. 6 USC last week. He averaged 14.00 assists per set, while hitting .500 (13-3-20) and adding 11 digs and six blocks.

he opening round of the CIF NorCal basketball playoffs is over. That means four local teams are alive to play another day and five are not. Advancing to the quarterfinals on Saturday will be the Eastside Prep girls plus the Sacred Heart Prep and Pinewood boys. The Pinewood girls had a first-round bye and will open this weekend.

was 0-3-4 against Sacred Heart Prep from 2009-11. If there was another tipoff to how this year’s title match was going to end, one only had to look at last year’s CCS Division III boys’ finale between Menlo and SHP. Also meeting for the first time in the postseason, the teams fought to a 1-1 stalemate — sharing the title, as well. The Menlo and SHP girls each brought one outright CCS title each into their first face-to-face championship match. It was fitting, perhaps, that neither team came away as the champ. “The match was really exciting between two excellent, evenly matched teams,” said Menlo ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÈÈ®

hen you really think about it, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that the Menlo School and Sacred Heart Prep girls battled to a 1-1 deadlock in overtime and wound up sharing the Central Coast Section Division III championship last Saturday night at Valley Christian High in San Jose. These two neighborhood rivals have tied more times than not since they began playing each other in the West Bay Athletic League in 2009. In the past six years, the teams have met 12 times during the league season and twice during the postseason. Seven times they have battled to ties. Menlo holds a slight edge in victories, 4-3, but

plus the Castilleja, Gunn, and Menlo School girls. While there were a handful of close games on Wednesday night, one decidedly was not as the No. 4-seeded Eastside Prep girls (19-10) rolled to a 73-13 victory over No. 13 Central Catholic (17-11) of Modesto in a Division V opener. The Panthers tuned up for NorCals by losing two tough games in the Central Coast Section Open Division playoffs last week.

Eastside Prep next will host No. 5 St. Vincent de Paul of Petaluma on Saturday at 6 p.m. St. Vincent ousted No. 12 Ripon Christian, 46-33, in its first-round game. “This was big,” said Eastside Prep head coach Donovan Blythe. “You’re always nervous because if you go down, it’s over. We got the monkey off our back.” Eastside Prep used a stifling press that forced the Raiders into 25 turnovers. The Panthers’ offense, meanwhile, had 29 field

goals to just six for Central Catholic. Raiders junior Danielle Friedrich scored the first basket of the game on a layup giving Central Catholic a 2-0 lead. As soon as the Raiders scored, however, ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÈÈ®


COLLEGE SOFTBALL

STANFORD ROUNDUP

Facing Cal is just the start

Cardinal men looking forward to NCAA show Solid performance at Pac-12 Tournament will help push Stanford into that long-awaited postseason berth

Stanford opens Pac-12 season with injuries and a young lineup By Rick Eymer here are no seniors in the starting lineup and the only two on the roster have been limited due to injuries. When it comes to Stanford softball, though, the lack of a senior starter does not mean a lack of leadership. Seniors Danielle Miller, who has been dealing with a knee injury all season, and Corey Hanewich, a former All-Pac-10 pick, still keep things lively at practices and games. It’s just the 19thranked Cardinal players have found other ways to keep each other focused. Paying attention in the Pac-12 is particularly crucial given the strength of the conference, which boasts five of the top seven teams in the nation. The conference schedule gets under way this weekend, with Stanford (22-6) hosting Bay Area rival California in a three-game set beginning Friday at 5:30 p.m. and continuing Saturday with a doubleheader that begins at noon. “The Cal-Stanford rivalry is there regardless of the sport,” Stanford coach John Rittman said. “In softball, because of the success of all the teams, they are all big series. We’re all fighting for the postseason.” Last year, eight of the nine conference teams were selected to play in the NCAA tournament. Entering play this week, only two teams have overall records under .500 and that’s all likely to change in a few short weeks. Five Pac-12 teams, including California, have won a national title. The conference has won 24 titles and had 15 runner-ups since the NCAA began sponsoring the tournament in 1982. Stanford has qualified for the past 16 consecutive years and has appeared in five Super Regionals (since they were introduced in 2005) and a pair of Women’s College World Series. Just getting through conference play becomes a cause for celebration. “Every time you step on the field against a Pac-12 team you’re facing a lineup full of All-Americans,” said Rittman, in his 18th year at Stanford. “There are quality players everywhere.” The Cardinal has a few of its own, with five junior starters and a pair of sophomores and freshmen. “We don’t have a team captain,” Rittman said. “Basically, they are all leaders. The upperclassmen take charge but everybody leads in their own way. They hold each

Lauren Bertoy has started a handful of games and Carley Hoover is 2-0 with a 1.65 ERA in five appearances. Hoover, last year’s national Gatorade Player of the Year, has been out of action since early in the season. “Injuries are part of the game,” Rittman said. “We’ve been like a MASH unit with our pitching staff.” That’s where Schreyer fits in. She’s thrown 123 of the team’s 179 innings thus far, producing a 16-4 record with a 1.59 ERA in 22 games, 18 starts. The Canadian National Team member stepped up to the challenge. “She’s done well in taking a lot of the innings,” Rittman said. “She’s matured quickly and done a great job of becoming a complete pitcher.” Leticia Olivarez, starting her first year as an assistant after spending two years as a volunteer assistant, has been working overtime to assure Stanford has enough pitchers. Rittman has had to adjust quickly with a pitching staff that lost Teagen Gerhart (she’s a volunteer assistant this year) to graduation, last year’s Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Kelsey Stevens, who transferred to defending national champion Oklahoma, and veteran junior Nyree White, who had given up one hit in five innings thus far. She’s currently injured. Sorenson, the starting shortstop and team leader with a .400

batting average and 12 doubles, has appeared in eight games as a pitcher, starting three. Juniors Tylyn Wells and Erin Ashby and sophomore Kayla Bonstrom also have taken turns on the mound. Sorenson, a two-time All-CIF Division I pick who did some pitching at West Ranch High, also leads the Cardinal with a .653 slugging percentage and a .525 on-base percentage. Stanford was able to navigate a strenuous preseason schedule due to Schreyer’s emergence and the team’s offensive capabilities. Cassandra Roulund leads the Cardinal with 27 RBI, but seven others have at least 13. Freshman Bessie Noll is right behind Sorenson in terms of average at .361, while seven others are hitting over .300, contributing to Stanford’s .329 team average. Catcher Jessica Plaza is hitting .352 with a team-high four home runs and a .648 slugging percentage. Hanna Winter leads the team with 32 hits, followed by Sorenson and Leah White, each with 30. The 3 W’s (White, Winter and Wells) are a combined 31 of 34 in stolen base attempts. “Our lineup is tough one through nine,” Rittman said. “There are no easy outs and we’re getting production from every part of the lineup. We have a nice blend of speed, average and power. We have a lot of depth, a lot of options.” Hanewich and Miller, for example, started 78 percent of the time over their first three years. Junior Lauren Donovan and sophomore Kaitlin Schaberg also have started a few games this year. N

tanford has had to settle for postseason men’s basketball tournaments lacking the NCAA moniker for more years than coach Johnny Dawkins cares to remember. The last time the Cardinal qualified for the NCAA tournament, a pair of towering twins named Lopez dominated action and led Stanford to the Sweet Sixteen. Dawkins was still an assistant coach at Duke and Mike Montgomery was still unemployed. There’s been the postseason NIT championship in 2011, a couple of other invitations to the NIT and CBI, but those didn’t seem to satisfy the Cardinal appetite. This year’s strength of schedule, which included road wins at Connecticut, Oregon and Cal, combined with the Pac-12’s overall strength, and Stanford should be feeling good about its chances come Sunday’s selection show. The Cardinal won its 20th game of the season on Wednesday, beating Washington State, 74-63, in the first round of the Pac-12 Conference tournament in Las Vegas. No. 6 seed Stanford (20-11) met No.3 seed Arizona State late Thursday night in the quarterfinal round (see http://www.paloaltoonline.com/sports/ for results) of the tournament and unless something bizarre happened, even a loss to the Sun Devils should not hurt. The Cardinal also own wins over Arizona State and UCLA and played current eighth-ranked Michigan on a neutral court; all good things. Stanford also avoided losing to teams with records under .500. In fact, the 10 teams that beat Stanford, including third-ranked Arizona twice, have a combined record of 215-99, as of Wednesday, for a winning percentage of .685. Seven of those teams have at least 20 wins and the Golden Bears would make it eight if they defeated Colorado last night. It’s not a slam dunk, but it is a bulky resume. Other factors are based on mid-major conference tournaments that produce a surprise winner. Having finished in a five-way tie for third place in the Pac-12 does offer some credence. It would also give players like Dwight Powell and Chasson Randle, both of whom earned spots on the All-Pac-12 first team, a chance at a little more exposure. That’s also true for Josh Huestis, who was named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team, and Anthony Brown, who was named the Most Improved Player of the Year. “I haven’t really thought too much about that,” Randle said. “As a team, we’re in the moment. We just beat a great team

in Washington State, and we’re looking forward.” Powell scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half and Randle added 22 points in the win over the Cougars. “I haven’t been to the tournament personally and it’s always been a dream of mine,” Powell said. Brown scored 12 points and led the team with seven rebounds. Huestis added 12 points and a pair of blocked shots. Stefan Nastic added 10 points. On Thursday, Powell was named the 2014 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. A Science, Technology & Society major, Powell sports a 3.05 GPA and will graduate in June. Men’s swimming Stanford finished second at the Pac-12 Conference Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships, which wrapped up Saturday at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Wash. Cal took home its second consecutive conference title, scoring 786 points en route to the victory. Stanford had 661 points and finished ahead of third-place USC. “It was not a perfect meet, they never are,” said Stanford coach Ted Knapp. “We finished with a lot of best times. We have our work cut out for the NCAA Championships.” The highlight of the meet for Stanford was David Nolan’s conference record of 1:41.49 in the 200 IM. He became the third swimmer to win three straight titles in the event at the conference meet. Nolan broke the previous meet record of 1:41.52, but missed his own school record of 1:41.21. Women’s tennis Nationally No. 4 Stanford returns to action on Friday, hosting No. 42 Washington (0-2, 10-4) in its Pac-12 opener at Taube Family Tennis Stadium. The Cardinal (8-0) remains unbeaten after last week’s 5-2 road win over California and jumped five spots in this week’s edition of the national rankings. Earlier this week, Stanford was invited to attend a celebration of 2012-13 NCAA Championship teams at the White House, with President Barack Obama offering congratulations and recognizing each program individually. Track and field Stanford sends 12 athletes, plus four alternates, to the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend in Albuquerque, N.M. In all, eight men and eight women will make the trip and compete in a total of six events, all on the track. N

coach Donoson FitzGerald, who finished up his 25th season with the Knights. Added SHP coach Ramiro Arrendondo: “Both teams deserve it, right?” Yes, they do. Menlo came into the finale with the most single-season wins (17) as did Sacred Heart Prep (19). The top-seeded Knights exited with a fine 17-3-3 mark while the No. 6-seeded Gators finished 192-3 for the best mark in program history. Clearly, neither team deserved to lose. Sacred Heart Prep found a way to take the lead while Menlo found a way to avert disaster. “SHP played very well,” FitzGerald said. “They challenged

Division I boys Despite holding a 23-15 halftime lead, Menlo-Atherton’s season came to an end in a 53-45 loss to No. 6 Rodriguez of Fairfield

(27-3) in the opening round. The No. 11-seeded Bears finished 1810. M-A played without center Oliver Bucka, who sprained an ankle in a 43-41 loss to Bellarmine in the CCS finals on Saturday. The Bears were outscored by 39-23 in the second half despite the efforts of senior Royce Branning, who finished his career with 18 points. Division IV boys With Corbin Koch tossing in 19 points and Jim McLean adding 13, Sacred Heart Prep advanced in with a 56-52 win over No. 10 seed Colfax (17-14) on Wednesday in Atherton. SHP saw an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter whittled down to just a two-point game (5149) until SHP sophomore Mason Randall hit a 3-pointer for a 54-49 lead. After Colfax answered with its own 3-pointer to make it 54-52 with about 30 seconds left, Randall finished off the visitors with a final hoop. The No. 7-seeded Gators (21-7) next will visit No. 2 Salesian of Richmond (21-14) on Saturday at Albany High at 6 p.m. Salesian, which advanced with a 79-51 win over No. 15 Gridley, eliminated SHP in the NorCal finals two years ago.

The freshman guard had a total of 24 points, nine assists and six steals in two CCS Division IV basketball wins, getting 17 points and seven assists in a 49-40 win over Castilleja as the Knights defended their title.

The sophomore guard, who made 12 of 22 field goals, scored 33 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in two CCS Division IV basketball wins, getting 15 points and five boards as the Gators beat Harker, 48-37, in the title game.

Honorable mention

Corbin Koch and Andrew Daschbach (33) worked the boards for SHP.

Division V boys With senior Greg Naumann pouring in 21 points, CCS champion Pinewood advanced with a 71-41 romp over No. 10 Forest Lake Christian (25-5) in Los Altos Hills. Aidan Lucero added 16 points for the No. 7-seeded Panthers (24-4), who next will visit No. 2 seed St. Joseph Notre Dame (27-5) on Saturday at 6 p.m. “I thought we played a complete game on both ends of the court,” said Pinewood coach Mani Messy. “There was some urgency in everything we did out there. I was very pleased with the contribution of each player.” Naumann was on target as he made nine of his 14 field-goal attempts. Ryan Brice added nine points plus 10 rebounds and Jordan Riches contributed 11 points to the balanced effort. Pinewood grabbed an early 15-2 lead and cruised from

there while forcing 13 turnovers in the opening quarter. At Kezar Pavilion in San Francisco, No. 9 Priory ended its season with a 58-55 loss to No. 8 SFUniversity (25-7). The Panthers finished 16-11 after giving up the lead. Sophomore Scotty Harris

led Priory with 19 points while senior Connor Bonfiglio added 13 and junior Andy Isokpehi finished with 11. University got two free throws with nine seconds left for a three-point lead before a 3-point attempt by Harris clanked off the back rim at the buzzer. N

us. We struggled to find a rhythm offensively, but all the girls made big plays in key moments. Both teams created scoring opportunities and it was an exciting back and forth match.” The Gators grabbed what looked to be the lead for good in the first 10-minute overtime period when freshman Cameron Gordon scored in the 88th minute off a cross from senior Alex Bourdillon. However, Menlo got a saving goal from senior Sienna Stritter in the second overtime — in the 96th minute — to earn a co-title. Stritter had missed from long range just four minutes earlier. “Great scorers find a way to get it done and carry their team to victory,” FitzGerald said. “Sienna is that player. She added an exclamation point to her incredible Menlo soccer career.

“Sienna’s goal was beautiful. She had nearly scored a couple of other times in the game in similar one-on-one situations having beaten a defender on the dribble. We were all so excited when she got that goal to tie it up; happy to get the tie and the championship. Being down a goal with four minutes left makes that goal feel fantastic . . . They always believed in each other all season. That attitude was the key to us coming back. They played their best after we fell behind.” The co-title is the fourth for the Knights, who also shared titles from 1988-90 and won the championship outright in 2012. The Gators won their first and only title in 2009. “We played a great game,” Arrendondo said. “My girls put out all their effort and followed our game plan. We created plenty

of opportunities and I thought we put Menlo on their heels for the majority of the game. Alex (Bourdillon), Tierna (Davidson) and Cameron (Gordon) had an outstanding game.” Arrendondo also liked finishing with a school-record 19 victories. “19-2-3 is a great record and, yes, we are all very proud of our team. The team bonded so well from the beginning of the season and we (coaching staff) had such an amazing time working with them. “We know we had a great season this year and we will miss our senior class, but with such a young team we are also excited for the next few seasons.” The Gators will lose seven seniors — Blair Hamilton, Bourdillon, Maddie Morgan, Brianna Carcione, Meagan Terpening, Maddy Jones and Kate Bechtel —

while the Knights will lose Stritter, Emma LaPorte, Amanda McFarland and Chandler Wickers. Menlo finished the season with a 15-match unbeaten streak, last dropping a match on Jan. 4 to Francis Parker in San Diego. “I am very happy that the girls got it done and earned a CCS championship,” said FitzGerald, who praised sophomore goalie Schuyler Tilney-Volk and junior midfielder Leah Swig for their defensive efforts. “To win the third consecutive league title and another CCS championship is very rewarding and is really special. “These four seniors (Stritter, Wickers, McFarland, LaPorte) are all outstanding players and special girls. I am so proud of what they have accomplished together and so happy to have been their coach.” N

the Panthers went straight to their press and caused Central Catholic to turn it over eight times in the first quarter. “We’re trying to get used to how we are going to have to play down the road,” said Blythe. “If we continue to win, the competition will get better so we’re going to have to be able to make stops and switch it up on teams defensively.” Panthers junior guard Brije Byers ended the quarter on a fastbreak layup giving her team a 23-4 lead through the first quarter. The junior had a solid game and finished with 21 points, her second-highest point total of the season. With University of San Francisco women’s basketball coach Jennifer Azzi in the stands, Eastside Prep’s 6-foot-2 junior center Destiny Graham sank three jumpers in the fourth quarter to lead her team to the blowout win. She finished with 20 points and seven rebounds while senior Alexus Simon led the way with 22 points and 13 rebounds. “I feel like now since we were all confident today, we’re ready to play for state,” said Byers. “We’re also preparing for harder teams that we’re going to play so we want our defense to be solid.” While Eastside Prep hosts Saturday, No. 2-seeded Pinewood (26-3) will do the same. The Panthers will take on No. 7 Valley Christian-Dublin (27-4) at 6 p.m., following VD-Dublin’s 54-47 win over No. 10 Durham in the first round. In other girls’ action Wednesday: In Division I, Gunn saw its season end following a 47-23 loss to No. 5 McClatchy (26-4) in Sacramento. The Titans finished 10-9 under first-year coach Melanie Murphy, who guided Gunn to the CCS finals last weekend. In Division IV, host Menlo School was eliminated by No. 9 Cardinal Newman, 47-35. The No. 8-seeded Knights finished 18-

12, but did not go without a fight. The teams traded baskets through the second half, and Menlo finished the half ahead 21-20 on Sam Erisman’s 3-pointer and Hannah Paye’s free throws. Cardinal Newman (24-7) came out of the half firing threes and forged ahead in the third. Erisman, a freshman, finished with a team-high 16 points, including four 3-pointers, and sophomore Mackenzie Duffner added 10 for the two-time defending CCS champion Knights. In Oakland, Castilleja saw its season come to an end following a 48-30 loss to No. 6-seeded Piedmont (20-9). The No. 11-seeded Gators, playing in their first NorCal game since 2010, finished their season at 20-11 — reaching the CCS finals after winning the West Bay Athletic League (Skyline Division) title. Junior Paige Vermeer led Castilleja with 18 points and six rebounds, but was the only Gator in double figures.
