a wide array of topics, from the city’s openness toward people of diverse backgrounds to opportunities to participate in social events. In almost every case where there’s a major divergence, northern Palo Altans (generally speaking, those who live north of Oregon Expressway/Page Mill Road) gave far higher reviews than southern. This is in spite of the fact that overwhelming majorities in each geographical areas (94 percent in the north and 91 percent in

the south) gave Palo Alto the two highest ratings as “a place to live” and as “a place to raise children” (94 percent in the north and 84 percent in the south). The differences prompted a string of theories and questions from council members, who concluded that the divergences demand further exploration. Councilman Greg Schmid, who lives in south Palo Alto, was the first to raise the issue. Schmid said he was “upset by the comparisons of

the north and south divide” and called some of the differences in assessments of city services from the two regions “startling.” In more than a dozen categories, he noted, the difference is 10 or 12 percent. When asked about a “sense of community,” 79 percent of residents in north Palo Alto gave the city the top two ratings of “excellent” and “good,” com(continued on page 9)

Rent-control manager resigns after audit Carol Lamont to leave May 10 by Sue Dremann

ity is also significant, he said. Audio recordings in the new systems have far more range and can work “through objects,” Perron said. “If you’re around the corner of a building and that’s where the arrest occurs, there’s still a very good chance that the audio will not only be captured but be clearly discernible,” he said. Another difference is that

arol Lamont, the manager of East Palo Alto’s rentcontrol program, tendered her resignation March 12, after the City Manager’s office commissioned an audit of her program that many rent-board members and the City Council did not even know about. Without directly relating her resignation to the audit, Lamont told the board that May 10 would be her last day. But she told the Weekly on Wednesday that her written response to the audit summed up why she is departing. “I was very explicit in stating my reasons in my response to the review of the rent-stabilization program that the city manager has conducted by a consultant,” she said. The City Manager’s office referred a request for Lamont’s response to the City Attorney for review. Lamont’s resignation, and the discovery that City Manager Magda Gonzalez had commissioned the audit without other city officials’ knowledge, surprised and dismayed some board members and council members. Lamont is highly qualified for her job, they said. The consultant, Nadine Levin of Municipal Resource Group in Wilton, Calif., was hired for a high-level review of the pro-

LAW ENFORCEMENT

New camera system gives Palo Alto police better eyes, ears Cruisers now equipped with five cameras for better surveillance by Gennady Sheyner

I

f you see a Palo Alto police cruiser passing by, the odds are that the cruiser can also see you, even if the officers inside are gazing in the opposite direction. The Palo Alto Police Department has recently installed new video systems on dozens of cruisers, replacing the recording systems that were first installed on police vehicles in 2006. In addition to the usual enhancements

one can expect with video upgrades — high-definition video and high-fidelity audio — the new recording systems have an additional feature: the ability to record and review what happened before an incident even occurs. Unlike the previously used Mobile In-Car Video System, which included two cameras on the cruiser, the new systems include five. This means new cameras on the cruisers’ sides and rearview

mirrors, according to a report from the police department. “We’ve already had a few cases where actions of our officers that would not have been captured on the old system were completely captured on the new one, which allowed us to have a clear view of what went on,” said Lt. Zach Perron, the department’s publicinformation manager. “That’s exactly what we want to have.” The improvement in audio qual-

Around Town

CONSTRUCTION TRANSPARENCY ... Curious about when that pesky construction project down the street might be finished? Palo Altans can now check up on application and permit statuses, whether a city inspection has occurred and more at the city’s new CivicInsight website, coordinated by the city’s Development Services Center. Users can search by address to see nearby projects on a map; add properties to a personal watchlist to receive email alerts about construction; and view what permit applications have been submitted, permits issued and inspections approved in the last 90 days. Searches can also be narrowed by dates and project status categories. “Every day spent waiting for an update from our Department can amount to thousands of dollars lost for the applicant,” Development Services Director Peter Pirnejad said in a press release. “With Civic Insight, we hope to increase responsiveness and save our customers precious time — and money.” In the interest of true civic engagement, website visitors can also post ideas about issues or projects the Development Services Center should tackle next. Visit the website at paloalto.civicinsight.com. GO SOLAR OR GO HOME ... It’s not a tech company boasting the installation of Palo Alto’s third-largest solar roof system but instead the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center. The Fabian Way center now has 1,840 solar panels on rooftops of its 12 buildings, installed in late February and celebrated at an “operational launch” and ribbon-cutting this week. The new system is the city’s third in size, behind only those at VMWare and HewlettPackard Co. According to a press release, the panels will reduce the 12 buildings’ carbon footprint by approximately 9,500 tons of carbon dioxide over the next 20 years — the equivalent of growing more than 223,000 tree seedlings or taking 1,814 cars off the roads. The 395.5-kilowatt system is the result of collaboration between the JCC, Palo Alto-based investorcoordinator company THiNKnrg and the City of Palo Alto Utilities and Development departments. The panels aren’t only saving the environment, they’re also saving the JCC’s bank account. The solar

system was financed through a power-purchase agreement (a contract between two parties, one who generates and sells the electricity and one who is looking to purchase electricity), so there were no upfront costs for the community center, and it can anticipate saving $1.5 million over the next 20 years, according to the Utilities Department. It also adds some oomph to the city’s solar cache. Palo Alto currently ranks seventh nationwide for the highest number of solar systems installed per utility customer, with 600 residential and commercial solar systems installed to date, according to the Utilities Department. STOP THAT CHECK ... The bright minds over at the Stanford University mathematics department couldn’t stop a recent scam that sent approximately 30 FedEx packages from the department’s account containing fake checks, said Brad Hayward, the university’s senior director of strategic communications. Hayward said some of the checks appeared to be from an “outside company,” but he has no information about the amounts the checks were made out for or whether any recipients tried to cash one. “Just to be clear about what occurred: Someone used a FedEx account of the Stanford mathematics department to send what appeared to be checks to various people, and the return address on the FedEx envelopes showed the mathematics department,” Hayward wrote in an email. “But the checks were not issued by Stanford and did not bear Stanford’s name, and they were issued against a nonexistent bank.” He said that he’s not aware of any similar cases occurring elsewhere on campus, though it was reported in March that someone had been sending people counterfeit checks from the account of the Woodside Priory School in Portola Valley, according to a report from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. Hayward said Stanford police are continuing to investigate the incident, and anyone receiving a suspicious package should not attempt to cash the check nor send any money to anyone requesting it. Recipients should instead contact Stanford Police at 650-723-9633. N

‘Getting a pulse’ on Palo Alto teens Students ponder the question of identity with art and narrative

N

early 200 Palo Alto teens ponder the question “What’s it like to be you?” in a narrated art exhibit that’s opening Friday at the Palo Alto Art Center. Accompanied in each case by written self-reflection, 180 students from Gunn and Palo Alto high schools as well as Jordan Middle School explore their identities through painting, ceramics, sculpture, graphic arts and photography.

“This is a means of getting a pulse on how our teens are doing,” veteran Gunn art teacher Deanna Messinger said. “We let (the students) know we wanted them to go as authentic and deep as possible.” The art, she said, “speaks volumes on how our teens are doing this year.” Messinger is mounting the artwith-narrative show — called “Youth Speaks Out” — for the third time in as many years. It has grown from 84 pieces and one teacher in 2012 to 180 pieces and five teachers this year. Gunn Art Department head Mark Gleason’s graphic arts students participated this year. “For my particular class, it didn’t change what they did that much,” Gleason said. “But they definitely put more of a personal input into the work, and the narratives they had not done before.”

This sculpture, featured in the “Youth Speaks Out” art show at the Palo Alto Art Center, represents how girls should “take the mask off and just be themselves,” according to the artist’s statement.

by Chris Kenrick

Carolyn Digovich, coordinator of the “Youth Speaks Out” exhibition at the Palo Alto Art Center, stands next to some of the 180 works of art created by students in middle and high school. Also represented for the first time this year are middle school students — those in Jordan Middle School art teacher Leslie Goldman’s ceramics and sculpture class. “Without an outlet to express myself, I would have loads of bottled up emotions with no way to let them out,” wrote a 13-yearold Jordan student to accompany her ceramic sculpture of a bottle of ink holding a quill pen. “Art is just one more way to transport someone and think differently,” she wrote. “My hope for this project was to combine both writing and art because they are really very closely related. I am very proud of the simplicity of the sculpture and think it represents me very well.” High school artists expressed optimism, hope, angst, confusion and more.

A Palo Alto High School junior in Margo Wixsom’s photography class described her self-portrait, titled “Change”: “In this stage of my life I’m in transition between acting like a teen and an adult.” “Burning out my face represents moving on from my childish demeanor and slowly transitioning to a more mature self. The white in the background represents a blank canvas for my adult life and the unlimited opportunities I have for my future.” In a brightly colored piece called “The Balance of Life,” an 18-year-old Gunn graphic artist wrote of a striving for balance: “Present day teenagers are expected to balance so much in their lives,” the student wrote. “With all the expectation sometimes the stress can get to us. That is what the wave sym-

bolizes: sometimes everything comes crashing down on you but you have to keep going and try to balance out your life. The two koi fish symbolize a balance in your life. Finding the correct balance may take a long time, but in the end it will be worth it.” The “ever-present distractions of technology” was a topic for another graphic artist, a 17-year-old Gunn student. Beneath a human profile crowded with corporate logos of Twitter, Netflix, Facebook, iTunes and Instagram, the student wrote: “This piece of work is meant to bring to light the relationship between teenagers and technology. “With the introduction of modern computers, phones and television, teenagers are overcome with (continued on page £ä)

Board huddles in closed session on superintendent search Brief closed-door meeting follows open ‘wish list’ session

P

alo Alto school board members briefly met with search consultants behind closed doors Wednesday to discuss possible candidates to replace Superintendent Kevin Skelly, who plans to step down June 30. The closed session followed a public meeting during which the board kicked off its formal search process by generating a wish list of qualities of the perfect candidate. In round after round during which board members were asked to state desirable qualities, the first five mentioned were communication skills, vision and leadership that inspires the whole community, integrity, hiring-savvy and someone who can create high-quality academic environments for all students, combined with an emphasis on social-emotional support. Two retired California school superintendents who are partners in Leadership Associates, the consulting firm the district has hired to manage the search, took notes on

by Chris Kenrick the long list of board preferences. To solicit community comment, the search consultants have posted an online survey, posted at www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZX7PZRM, and also will hold three public meetings next week. The first public forum will be held Tuesday, March 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Jordan Middle School, 750 N. California Ave. The second will be held Wednesday, March 26, from 9 to 10 a.m. in Conference Room A at the school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave. The third forum will be held later that day from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the boardroom of school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave. By the first week of April, the search consultants said, they will advertise a detailed “position description,” with an application deadline of April 14. Consultant Phil Quon, a former superintendent in Cupertino and San Jose, said his firm began fielding inquiries about the Palo Alto vacancy shortly after Skelly’s Feb.

18 resignation announcement, well before Leadership Associates was even hired to manage the search. “Candidate recruitment is passive and active,” Quon said. “It was active the minute we knew Palo Alto was open. People called us even before we knew we were doing the search ... and we’ll talk about some potential candidates in a closed session today.” In a timetable discussed Wednesday, the board would meet April 30 with consultants to discuss which candidates to interview; hold the interviews all day May 15; visit the district of the finalist sometime after that and take action on a new hire at a board meeting June 3 or June 17. For updates on the superintendent search process, the district is directing people to the Superintendent Search web page at pausd. org/community/board/SuperintendentSearch/index.shtml or to Skelly’s administrative assistant Kathleen Ruegsegger at 650-329-3737 or kruegsegger@pausd.org.

Principals, veteran math teacher, announce retirements Fairmeadow, Ohlone and Adult School search for new leaders by Chris Kenrick

F

airmeadow and Ohlone elementary schools and the Palo Alto Adult School are searching for new principals following an announcement Tuesday of a spate of retirements. Ohlone’s Bill Overton, Fairmeadow’s Gary Prehn, the Adult School’s Kara Rosenberg and Jordan Middle School Assistant Principal Ellie Slack all plan to step down in June. Overton, who taught at Ohlone for 24 years before becoming principal in 2009, taught earlier at Sequoyah (now Palo Verde) and Green Gables elementary schools. His work at Ohlone goes back to the earliest days of the

school, which focuses particularly on integrating children’s social-emotional needs into the curriculum. “I’m considered a ‘settler,’ since I came in soon after the initial staff consortium and Board of Education decision,” he said. “I did work with the ‘pioneers,’ though, some remarkable people, and even still keep in contact with some of them. “I’m proudest of maintaining my energy and passion for kids and their school experiences and have always been proud to be part of PAUSD and this organization’s tireless focus to do what’s best (continued on page £{)

Potential addition to Foothills Park cos Tran Los Rd

Palo Alto mulls new parkland Three council members suggest repurposing 7.7-acre parcel near Foothills Park

7.7 acre site

by Gennady Sheyner University Ave., the current site of the MacArthur Park Restaurant. The proposals ultimately collapsed after an intense public outcry about insufficient transparency and the excessive density proposed for 27 University Ave. But now, the 7.7-acre site is back on the table. This time, however,

‘I think it’s appropriate to dedicate the land for the purpose for which it was acquired, which was for conservation.’ —Karen Holman, City Council member, Palo Alto the proposal is to open it up to the public rather than sell it to Arrillaga, who owns properties on either side. The land has been city-owned since 1981, when the family of R. Hewlett Lee granted it to the city. The family had reserved an estate on the property,

Page 8ÊUÊ>ÀV…ÊÓ£]ÊÓä£{ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

which it owned until 1996. In presenting the 7.7-acre gift to the city, the Lee family specified that it “shall be used for conservation, including park and recreation purposes.” Pat Burt, Karen Holman and Greg Schmid argue in their memo that it’s time for the city to honor the direction and restore the site that few council members were even aware of two years ago. “Most of us didn’t even know it existed,” Holman told the Weekly. “And it’s been fenced off and locked off from community access.” “I think it’s appropriate to dedicate the land for the purpose for which it was acquired, which was for conservation,” Holman said. “One way to do it is to dedicate it as parkland.” The colleagues’ memo describes the site as “a flat plain surrounded by wooded hillsides on both the north and south sides.” It calls the land “a natural extension of the beautiful and popular Las Trampas Valley in Foothills Park and, if accessible, would extend that valley for about a fifth of a mile northwestward along the course of Buckeye Creek.”

long-forgotten and largely abandoned parcel of cityowned land next to Foothills Park could be spruced up and added to Palo Alto’s verdant empire of dedicated parkland under a proposal offered this week by three City Council members. The 7.7-acre site, which is currently closed to the public and which can be accessed by a path off Los Trancos Road, last cropped up in council discussions in the fall of 2012, when developer John Arrillaga offered to buy it from the city for $175,000. As part of these discussions, Arrillaga also offered to build three athletic fields for the city as part of the renovation of the Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course. These talks over the park site occurred largely behind closed doors and during private site tours staff had arranged for council members, which the Weekly learned about from documents obtained through the Public Records Act. At the same time, Arrillaga was seeking the city’s permission to build a four-tower office complex and a theater at 27

Three Palo Alto council members are proposing turning a 7.7-acre parcel next to Foothills Park into dedicated parkland. “These acres include an environmentally important riparian corridor. It is time this property becomes dedicated parkland accessible to the public,” the memo states. Currently, the site is only used by the environmental nonprofit Acterra, which raises plants in a greenhouse. The rest is vacant and fenced off. Holman said that now is a particularly good time to consider options for turning the site into parkland because the city is preparing to put together a Parks, Trails, Open Space and Recreation Master Plan, which will lay out the city’s vision for future park im-

provements. The plan, which the council will also discuss Monday night, would propose five-, 10and 25-year improvements to Palo Alto’s extensive park system. That system includes 32 parks comprising 187 acres and four open-space preserves that total 4,000 acres, according to a recent staff report from the Public Works Department. This would would be the city’s first effort to put together a comprehensive plan for parks and recreation since 1965. According to the Community Services Department, that plan called for the creation of the Baylands Athletic ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£È)

Study shows Buena Vista children buck norms Research by Stanford professors explores the value of living in Palo Alto by Gennady Sheyner make up the largest ethnic group and where residents are now preparing for possible eviction. The property owner is seeking to sell the El Camino Real land to a developer of luxury apartments. These two findings were the result of a study published this week by Stanford University education professors Donald Barr, a long-time housing advocate, and Amado Padilla, a former member of the Palo Alto Board of Education. As part of the research, Barr, Padilla and a group of graduate students spent the past year inter-

thing is that we have a difference in perceptions.” Furthermore, council members deemed some of the survey categories so vague that they pose a special challenge to solve. If a resident complains that the streets are shoddy, the city can re-pave them. Addressing a resident’s “sense of community” is trickier business, officials felt. “It’s easier for us to deal with a specific service issue than it is with people’s individual perception of the sense of community,” City Manager James Keene said. “There are so many factors that go into that.” Councilman Larry Klein, speaking for the majority, argued that many of the answers merely beg for more questions and could have nothing to do with the north-south split. For instance, the fact that the survey was taken last year at around the same time that the Measure D campaign was heating up could explain why there has been such a citywide dip in opinion regarding land-use and traffic issues (“land use, planning and zoning” received positive ratings from 35 percent of the respondents in the north and 37 in the south, a huge drop from 2012). Even so, the fact that the election centered on a housing development in the southern half of the city may have widened the geographical split. Sixty percent of respondents from the north rated the overall direction that Palo Alto is taking as “good” or “excellent,” compared to 48 percent in the south. Klein also noted that citizens’ concerns about crime increased between 2012 and 2013, even though crime statistics have not. He asked staff whether it’s possible to go deeper and ask follow-up questions to the residents who took the survey. That way, he said, the council could better understand the reasoning “when the objective facts would indicate that there hasn’t been any change in the community, but

­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ÊvÀœ“Ê«>}iÊx®

pared to 59 percent in the south. When asked about “openness and acceptance of the community toward people of diverse backgrounds,” 84 percent of the respondents in the north gave the city rave reviews, compared to 68 percent in the south. On “opportunities to attend cultural activities,” 79 percent in the north gave the city high marks while only 60 percent in the south did so; on “opportunities to participate in social events and activities,” 83 percent in the north were enthusiastic, compared to 65 percent in the south. On “quality of new developments,” the city received kudos from 50 percent in the north and 38 percent in the south. When asked about “services to seniors,” 86 percent in the north rated them “excellent” or “good,” compared to 62 percent in the south. For youth services, the city split 84 percent and 68 percent, respectively. “How do you respond to those startling discrepancies?” Schmid asked staff. “What can be done about them?” Though other questions followed, concrete answers proved elusive. In some cases, members said, responses seemed to have more to do with perceptions than reality. Councilman Pat Burt, for instance, said he was interested in the difference in opinion but then cited some puzzling survey responses that defied easy explanation. He noted that downtown is not safer for residents from the north than for those from the south, despite their differences in responses on the issue. He also noted that employment opportunities in the city as a whole are no different whether one lives in the north or south. “At a minimum, this shows that there’s a difference in perception,” Burt said. “There may be differences in realities, but the clearest

viewing Buena Vista residents, which included 67 families with at least one child 18 or younger (other families confirmed that they had no children living with them). The study authors believe 100 percent of families with children participated. Barr, who summarized the study’s findings at Monday’s City Council meeting, said the research was prompted by his and Padilla’s realization that very little is known about the children of Buena Vista, a community that rarely made headlines before the

proposed closure. The new study focuses exclusively on the children and aims to illuminate overarching questions looming over the park’s closure: What is the value of living in Palo Alto? And what is fair compensation for that loss of value? Though answers are impossible to quantify, the Stanford study indicates that residents of Buena Vista are essentially immune to the problems of inadequate health care and high drop-out rates experienced by Silicon Valley’s broader Hispanic population.

The study determined that there are 129 children living in Buena Vista with an average age of 9.5 years. More than 90 percent of the families are Hispanic, with the largest ethnic group being Mexican-American. Of the 67 families with children, 52 (or 78 percent) requested that the survey be administered in Spanish. Of the 129 children, 101 are currently enrolled in Palo Alto schools, which includes 36 in Barron Park Elementary School; 19 ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£Ó®

we’re hearing a different answer (from respondents).” Acting City Auditor Houman Boussina, whose office coordinates the release of the annual report, said city officials can follow up with the National Citizens Survey to see if that’s possible. In at least one case, the survey may have made a victory look like a defeat. Councilman Marc Berman, following Klein’s comment about crime statistics, suggested that the growing concerns may have to do with the police department’s outreach efforts, which generally

benefit the community but can also have the effect of making residents aware of more crimes, large or small. Council members expressed interest in having the council’s Policy and Services Committee further explore the report’s findings. Mayor Nancy Shepherd said “it would be interesting to see if there’s any more information that comes out of doing a deep dive.” But like her colleagues Councilman Greg Scharff and Vice Mayor Liz Kniss, she characterized the latest survey as, on

the whole, a very positive one, with Palo Alto getting far higher ratings than comparable cities in most categories not related to land use and transportation. Kniss noted that while many of the city’s older residents may be frustrated about increasing traffic, most people are, on the whole, happy to be in Palo Alto. “When the ‘overall quality of life’ is about 90 percent in your community, that doesn’t seem all bad,” Kniss said.

A January 2013 traffic study found that cars waited more than 90 seconds at the intersection during the morning commute. “The purpose of this project is to enhance the safety of motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians by regulating traffic movements and minimizing driver confusion which was found to be the cause of the accidents within these intersections,” Bijan Sartipi, district director for Caltrans, wrote in a response to Los Altos Hills resident Garo Kiremidjian. Sartipi said an investigation of accidents in the area revealed “numerous accidents at the subject intersections that were caused by driver confusion and are correctable by traffic signals.” “In addition to addressing the vehicular accidents at the intersections, there are other benefits

proposal by state, county and local officials to add a traffic signal at the Interstate 280/Page Mill Road interchange is encountering resistance from Los Altos Hills residents, who are circulating a petition that claims the change would make safety and traffic in the area even more problematic. More than 30 Palo Alto residents have also signed the petition. “We are deeply worried that the signalization project would jeopardize our safety, further erode our rural environment and negatively impact our property values,” states the petition, which is available online at pagemill280. org. “The implementation of the signalization project would result in a number of risk factors affecting not only the neighborhood in the vicinity of the interchange but also numerous other areas of Los Altos Hills.” The residents are asking the Los Altos Hills City Council, Santa Clara County and the state Department of Transportation (better known as Caltrans) to reconsider the proposed change, which proponents say is being driven by safety concerns in the busy area around Page Mill Road and Arastradero Road. The southbound ramp typically experiences long backups during

Under one of four alternatives for altering the I-280/Page Mill Road traffic flow, signal lights would be installed at the intersection of the southbound I-280 off-ramp and Page Mill Road and Arastradero Road. The off-ramp would be widened but no additional lanes added under this design, known as the “Caltrans Safety Project.” None of the on- or off-ramps would be relocated. Under a second alternative, known as the “Enhanced Caltrans Safety Project,” signals would also be added at the northbound I-280 off-ramps, eliminating the current free flow that drivers experience when exiting I-280 and heading toward Foothill Expressway. For more information, go to paloaltoonline.com/ media/reports/1395249379.pdf. associated with the proposed signals, such as facilitating difficult turning movements currently uncontrolled, safe pedestrian crossings, orderly flow of bicycle traffic, as well as reduced queuing on the exit ramps,” Sartipi wrote. “The new signals will be traffic actuated and interconnected, and will operate in a manner so as not to create excessive or dis-

proportionate traffic delays and vehicular queuing on Page Mill and Arastradero Roads.” But critics of the plan believe the project would merely shift traffic problems during peak hours off 280 to other roads, including Arastradero, Purissima, Fremont and Foothill Expressway. “This will substantially impact travel times to and from Palo Alto

area offices and cause further deterioration of fast freeway access,” the petition states. As of last Friday, the petition had 332 signatures, according to a letter Kiremidjian sent to the Los Altos Hills City Council. The council was scheduled to hear an update on the signalization project at its meeting on Thursday, March 20. N

Winning Strategy for Buyers in a Competitive Market

these cameras are, in a sense, always on. Footage on the new video systems gets stored in two different ways. All footage is automatically recorded and basically remains dormant on the vehicle’s hard drive, subject to later review, according to the website of WatchGuard, a network security company that makes the new systems. The company, which refers to the feature as “record after the fact,” allows the department to rewind footage over a 40-hour buffer period. “We’re able to go back and snip out a video segment that has been recorded in the prior 40 hours and create a file based on that,” Perron said. Perron noted, however, that this “buffer” period does not include audio recordings. Second, any incident that requires the use of police lights and sirens automatically triggers the cameras, including audio recording, and transfers the data to a removable flash drive. The new system’s “always on” feature has already come in useful in at least one case, Perron said. Officers were able to use footage from a passing patrol car to verify that a suspect was near a business where a crime had occurred, he said. Before the video review, the suspect had claimed he was in a different location. The way the footage is transferred is also completely new. Before, the department had to plug data cables into cruisers to get the data into the department computers. Now, the footage is transferred wirelessly and automatically to a secure server, with officers having no ability to delete or edit it. The new technology was briefly mentioned at the March 13 meeting of the Human Relations Commission, when Commissioner Claude Ezran recounted a recent tour he took of local police facilities. The new cameras, he said, allow officers to “capture all the audio-video and make sure (they) have good visibility on every single incident.” The City Council approved a $305,000 contract to install the new video equipment on 28 vehicles last November. Of those, 22 were installed about three months ago, Perron said. The other six will be installed in the next few months, when the cruisers currently using the old system are replaced. At the same time, the department is preparing to equip traffic officers and a few patrol officers with wearable cameras. The department, Perron said, is now in the final stages of drafting policies for how these cameras should be used. Officers will start wearing them in the coming weeks, he said. “We’re looking at this as a test

In today’s fast moving market, buyers are nervous and wary of the homebuying process. Having said that, buyers can design a winning strategy that will help them buy a house with less stress. It’s completely normal to panic at some point during the process of buying a home but buyers should not let their fear get in the way. They should also understand that it is common in our area to make offers on multiple homes before they’re successful. That way they can mentally prepare for possible disappointment if they keep losing out on their dream homes. Following are some recommendations that could be helpful for buyers: 1. Identify essential features: Before you fall in love with a property, identify your essential needs - for example, good schools, short commute to work, etc. 2. Tap your agent’s knowledge and ask any questions you might have: You might think that you know about the home-buying process from reading or

talking to your friends and family, but your agent’s knowledge and expertise can be invaluable in getting you that house. 3, Understand list prices: Ask your agent for data about the list and sale price for properties in your price range. Nowadays the sale price frequently differs from the asking price so you may need to adjust your search criteria accordingly. 4. Conduct your due diligence: Before you write an offer, understand the important details of the home, like disclosures, inspections, and loan payments and other expenses associated with the transaction. 5. Be prepared to move. Do not pass on a property you like. It may take a long time to find another one that you will like or it could become more expensive to buy that home. Some buyers just can’t pull the trigger at the right time and end up paying high prices for less-appealing homes.

in Terman Middle School and 28 in Gunn High School (along with one in Palo Alto High School, one in Alta Vista High School and one in Beacon School). Four others attend college. In the study, the professors note that they “were unable to identify any of the children (18 or younger) as having dropped out of school.” “This is in contrast to the high school drop-out rate of 29.3 percent among the Hispanic high school students living in Silicon Valley, and 26.7 percent among Hispanic students statewide,” the authors wrote, citing a 2011 report by the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley. “The results showed that every child of school age was enrolled in school, with several having moved on to enroll in local colleges,” the study stated. “In addition, nearly half of school-aged children were getting extra assistance from the schools through enrollment in special programs.” The Stanford study suggests that the types of services offered by the local school district may have contributed to Buena Vista’s nonexistent drop-out rate. Research indicated that 43 percent of the children in kindergarten through 12th grade were enrolled in some kind of special-education program, with English Learner program as the most common example. In an overwhelming majority of cases (90 percent), parents of these children said they have met with the children’s teachers within the past year. The report notes that parents “appreciated the schools’ effort as well in making them feel comfortable — for example, a number of parents indicated

that the school had provided for a translator.” “Generally, parents were very happy and appreciative of the education that their children were getting in Palo Alto,” the report states. In a statement, Barr and Padilla said that living near the schools, which are rated as among the best in the state, “helps parents gain familiarity with the classes and teachers.” It thus keeps them engaged in the children’s schoolwork. “I did not meet a single parent who didn’t know what was going

on with their kids,” Padilla said in the statement. “If you went to some other school districts, you likely wouldn’t find the same thing.” When it comes to access to medical care, Buena Vista residents also defy the norm. A 2009 study by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research found that children of Mexican immigrants are “three times more likely than children of U.S. born whites to have no usual place to obtain regular medical care” (13.8 percent versus 3.9 percent). At Buena Vista, 97 percent of the families with children said that they had a usual source of medical care for

Page 12ÊUÊ>ÀV…ÊÓ£]ÊÓä£{ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

their children. The largest plurality of the responders, 28 percent, said they used Stanford’s medical facilities (Stanford Hospitals and Clinics and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital). Others identified the Mayview Community Clinic (25 percent); KaiserPermanente (15 percent) and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (13 percent) as their usual sources of care for their children. “Overall, these data suggest that medical care is generally quite available to the children in Buena Vista, despite the relatively low income of their parents,” the report states. Numbers were less positive when it came to dental care. Responses from Buena Vista residents indicated that 80 percent of the families couldn’t afford to pay for their children’s needed dental care. The survey also found that one third of the children have not visited a dentist in the past 24 months. The study concluded: “The children living in Buena Vista, despite being raised in a lowincome family and despite the problems often faced by Hispanic families in California, are benefiting from a strong educational experience and the local availability of health insurance and health care providers.” “These benefits stand in stark contrast to low-income Hispanic children living in less affluent communities than Palo Alto, communities that do not enjoy the same educational and health care resources,” the authors wrote. “It remains an open question how the life course trajectory of these children would be affected were the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park to be closed, necessitating relocation of these families to communities without the same level of resources and amenities.”

Forty-three percent of the children living in the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park participate in special school programs through the Palo Alto school district, including English Learner program and reading and math help. The closure of the park is currently pending the approval of a “relocation impact report,” which includes proposals to financially compensate Buena Vista residents who would lose their homes. After about two years of revisions and amendments, Palo Alto finally decreed last month that the report is complete. The report will be evaluated by the city’s hearing officer, Craig Labadie, who will determine whether the Jisser family has complied with the city’s park-closure ordinance. The compensation offered includes “startup costs” for each

Buena Vista family, based on the types of housing to which the residents would be relocating. This includes rent for the first and last month, a security deposit and 12 months of rent subsidies that would cover the gap between what residents pay at Buena Vista — the average rent last year was about $675 per month — and what they would have to pay in their new locations. For one-bedroom apartments, the compensation would range from $12,000 to $16,300; for three-bedroom apartments, it would range from $20,000 to $30,600. N

Architecture board OKs Stanford housing proposal As residents in Palo Alto’s College Terrace neighborhood prepare for a new housing community for Stanford University faculty adjacent to their eclectic neighborhood, many are concerned that the traffic generated by the new houses will disrupt and congest local streets. Dozens brought their concerns Thursday to the Architecture Review Board, which unanimously signed off on the proposed designs of the 68 single-family homes and 112 multi-family units that comprise the project at 1451-1601 California Ave. Though residents acknowledged the new housing units are effectively a done deal, having been approved in 2005 through a development agreement between the city and Stanford, many argued that the university should have done a better job in trying to prevent traffic problems stemming from the 180 new units. The houses will be built on a 17-acre site just south of Hanover Street, which currently includes three office buildings. Brent Barker, president of the College Terrace Residents Association, alluded to a petition recently signed by 600 residents, calling for a more robust plan for managing traffic during construction and for having better traffic circulation once the houses are built. Board members acknowledged residents’ concerns but repeatedly reminded the public that their purview is architecture, not traffic. On the design front, the board agreed that Stanford has done a good job in imitating the architectural variety of the surrounding neighborhood. Project architects said the 180-unit development includes 11 different floor plans and 29 different architectural styles. Exterior walls will include a wide range of materials, including stucco, fiber cement siding, vertical board-and-batten siding, and stained cedar horizontal siding, according to a staff report. Roofs would include red clay tiles, asphalt shingles and flat concrete tiles. N — Gennady Sheyner

Investigation finds school transcripts in order The online transcripts of seniors at Gunn and Palo Alto high schools are in order, the Palo Alto school district announced Monday following an investigation of possible transcript fraud. The investigation was launched last month after a Paly student was found to have gained online access to alter a transcript. The student did so by using a staff member’s password, the district said. In a subsequent investigation of all senior transcripts, “No evidence was found that other students were involved,� the district said in a statement Monday. “All transcript changes for the Class of 2014 at both high schools were reviewed and, with the exception of the individual in question, no other incidents of non-staff members making changes were found,� the statement reads. The transcript probe began around Feb. 20, when the district acknowledged that there had been an incident at Paly involving “an individual student gaining access to their own transcript and making changes.� “Steps have been taken to ensure that this problem does not repeat itself at Paly or at any other school in the district,� the district said Monday.

Police department looks to replace Tasers The Palo Alto Police Department will get new bullet-proof vests, tracking devices, Taser accessories and wireless equipment to improve communication during hostage negotiations as part of a state grant the city has recently received. The department will get more than $105,890 as part of the state’s Citizens Options for Public Safety (COPS) programs, which allocates funds to public-safety departments throughout the state. In the past, Palo Alto used these funds to bring in a canine unit and purchase new video-audio equipment and “electronic control devices,� better known as Tasers. This year, the Tasers once again feature heavily on the department’s shopping list. About half of the grant would be spent on warranty and accessories for new stun guns, which the City Council approved purchasing last year.

CELL TOWER MEETING ... A community meeting to discuss the proposed cell phone tower at the Palo Alto Little League Park is scheduled for March 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Fairmeadow Elementary School multipurpose room, 500 East Meadow Drive, Palo Alto. The meeting is sponsored by the Palo Alto Little League and Verizon. The cell device would be placed atop a light pole in the ballpark. A (PARTIAL) TRAFFIC RESPITE ... Members of the College Terrace Residents Association received some welcome news on March 6 from Green Sage Development, LLC, developer of 1050 Page Mill Road. The former Facebook and Beckman Coulter site has been a cause of concerns for residents in the past, when buses and cars flooded California Avenue, adjacent to residences. But architect Robert Giannini said traffic from the 283,986-square-foot, four-building development would enter and exit onto Page Mill Road, avoiding California Avenue entirely, much to residents’ relief. SETTING ‘SITES’ ON DEVELOPMENT ... The latest site plans for the Upper California Avenue Mayfield housing development in Stanford Research Park are now available for viewing on the City of Palo Alto’s website at www. CityofPaloAlto.org/civicax/filebank/ documents/39493. Since the file size is almost 200 megabytes, the College Terrace Residents Association reports that downloading it is not advisable without broadband Internet service. N

Fun with dogs, teens and the environment Neighborhood apps bring residents together for social networking and good causes by Sue Dremann hree finalists in the City of Palo Alto’s current Apps Challenge are gearing their inventions towards neighborhoods and positive change. From teen social activities to dog socials to a game to reduce a neighborhood’s carbon footprint, these mobile-device applications are tools the city hopes will build a deeper sense of engagement between government and residents, city leaders said March 13 as they announced the Apps Challenge’s 10 finalists. Midtown residents Ruthellen Dickinson and Cynthia Typaldos and their team have two applications in the top 10: Adopt Me!, an animal-adoption app, and Dogs in the Neighborhood!, a dog owners’ app that combines social networking with charity. Typaldos struck upon the idea after reading about animal issues and needs on her neighborhood’s Nextdoor networking website, she said. The team submitted seven applications to the city challenge, all related to improving animal welfare through the city’s animal services and adoption programs. They settled on two major goals: spreading the word about animal adoptions and generating more revenue for the city’s shelter, she said. Dogs in the Neighborhood! would bring more income to the animal shelter by requiring people to license their dogs in order to access the app. “We became aware that doglicensing compliance is less than 20 percent,” said Typaldos, who is working on her third tech startup. By offering “the carrot rather than the stick,” other cities have garnered up to 98 percent compliance, she said. In addition to benefiting the shelter, the app would create a community of dog owners. The application would allow registered users to build a profile of their dogs and themselves. A link could let members know about lost pets, she said. “They can share care, go hiking or walking together, or find similar needs or connect on similar breeds. There would be an online forum to chat with each other, and they can log in while walking the dog and see who else is walking at the same time,” Dickinson said. Typaldos’ 60-pound dog, Bunny, sometimes encounters two canines he adores.

FRESH MARKET FINANCIALS ... Edgewood Shopping Center’s magnet store, The Fresh Market, seems to be succeeding where other small markets have failed, according to a March 6 conference call about its fourth-quarter earnings. The largely East Coast supermarket chain opened the Palo Alto store in June 2013. The company had disappointing earnings overall in nine California and Texas stores, and it is shutting four of them. But sales in Palo Alto and Santa Barbara “substantially exceed sales levels in each of the three Sacramento stores that we’re shutting, and sales trends have firmed in both of those markets,” Chief Executive Officer Craig Carlock said. The company departed from its usual strategy by jumping into the California market, rather than focusing on local tastes and slowly building its brand name, he said.

Dickinson and Typaldos are part of the team creating the Dogs in the Neighborhood! and Adopt Me! apps, part of the city’s Apps Challenge. “It would be cool if he can meet up with them. There really are dogs your dog wants to meet,” she said. The Adopt Me! app would use existing social networks, such as Instagram, to distribute photos of adoptable pooches. The group has established a website, www.paloaltohomelessdogs.org, where people can register to receive a notice when the applications are ready. Typaldos said the dog apps could help further define the city’s image. Palo Alto is “the most digital city in America. Why can’t we be the most humane city in America?” she said. Barron Park resident and app builder Lisa Altieri agreed the apps will help give Palo Alto a stronger identity as a leader in important arenas. In her case, it’s about the city’s carbon footprint. Altieri is the neighborhoods liaison for the city’s Community Environmental Action Partnership (CEAP). The city formed CEAP in 2008 to bring together different parts of the community to develop innovative solutions to environmental issues. Altieri launched neighborhood Green Teams and “greening neighborhood events” that have included composting and recycling projects. With a background in custom database design

and development, she considered developing an app around carbondioxide reduction three years ago, but she didn’t launch the idea. “I only learned about the challenge a few days before the deadline. I just threw it in. I’ve been thinking a lot on how we could increase actions by residents. It would be great to have some tools — apps, a website,” she said. The phone application would allow residents to calculate their current carbon footprint and then explore ways it can be lowered. “They can make commitments, and as they make changes they can mark them as ‘done’ and get points,” she said. Neighbors and friends can compete and potentially receive recognition. Persons who make deep cuts might also receive prizes, she said. The application would work similarly for businesses. She is putting together a team that will include a graphic designer and applications developer, she said. Teens at Palo Alto’s public high schools are also working on an app to address a local concern: teen boredom. In a town that launched a program in recent years to improve youth self-worth and build a sense of belonging, the application, clickPA, is a project that gets to the heart of teen needs to connect and to have fun in the process. “It’s a great city,” said Ally

Gong, a Gunn High School junior and clickPA’s marketing manager. But every Friday night she heard teens say they were bored. The students took part in the city’s Palo Alto Youth Collaborative project, and they discussed what the city lacks in terms of teen resources. “We thought, ‘What if we created something that helped teens find things to do?’” she said. In September 2012, the teens put together a calendar-based website, pulling information on events such as music, theater and sports from the city’s resources. “We created a one-stop, dropby site,” she said. The application would be a mobile version of the site. The core staff of six students include two from Gunn and four from Palo Alto High School, she said. There is a marketing manager, graphic designer, technology manager, social marketer, events blogger and journalist. The group wants to recruit youth journalists who will cover events and take pictures. Blogs and photos would be posted for teens who missed the event and who might attend another one in the future, she said. The teens are gearing up to develop a marketing program, which could include sponsors. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@ paweekly.com.

Center, the future expansion of athletic fields throughout the city, and the expansion of Greer Park. The Parks and Recreation Commission has discussed the master plan over the course of several meetings and will shoulder much of the load in putting it together. In a new report, Community Services Department staff wrote that the plan will propose various enhancements, “acquisition of park and recreation facilities and a funding plan for implementation.”

“The city currently has no cohesive plan to manage, improve and expand its park and recreational facilities in order to keep the programs, services and facilities relevant to present and future populations; to appropriately balance recreational and open space conservation needs; and to provide adequate funding to meet these on-going needs,” the memo states. As the city considers these long-range goals, Holman said, the 7.7-acre site near Foothills Park should be in the mix. “This should be considered as part of that master plan,” Holman said. N

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, on Monday, April 7, 2014, at City Hall, Council Chambers, 1st Floor, 250 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, California, the City Council of the City of Palo Alto (the “City”) will conduct a public hearing as required by Section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, at which it will hear and consider information concerning a proposed plan of financing providing for the issuance by the California Municipal Finance Authority of multifamily housing revenue bonds in one or more series issued from time to time, including bonds issued to refund such revenue bonds in one or more series from time to time, and at no time to exceed $23,000,000 in outstanding aggregate principal amount, to finance the acquisition, construction and development of a 70-unit multifamily rental housing project to be located at 2450, 2470 and 2500 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, California. The facilities are to be owned by Palo Alto ECR Partners, L.P. (the “Borrower”) or related entities, and operated by Related Management Company, L.P., and are generally known as Stanford Affordable (the “Project”).

gram’s efficiency and effectiveness and its financial structure. The audit does not show anything illegal on Lamont’s part, but the consultant was critical of Lamont, who is not directly named in the 16-page report but is identified as the program administrator. The city’s rent ordinance was established in 1988 to protect tenants from unreasonable rent increases, arbitrary, discriminatory or retaliatory evictions and to assure landlords the right to a fair return, according to the city’s website. The program allows tenants who live in neglected, hazardous or unsanitary conditions to petition the board, and for landlords to also file petitions regarding disputes and evictions. Perhaps the most stinging criticism of Lamont accuses her of “a perceived lack of neutrality” in working with landlords. The consultant interviewed landlords and tenants, and tenants found the program’s services “very good.” But landlords perceived inconsistent treatment and delays by program staff in providing information, such as tenant petitions. The result was that the tenant had to wait for resolution to the problem. Some landlords said they felt the administration did not tell the tenant to contact the landlord first regarding complaints, but instead told the tenant to file a petition or directly report the landlord to regulatory agencies without giving the landlord an opportunity to respond. City Council member Ruben Abrica said he wants to know about the audit’s methodology. The auditor interviewed only 15 persons, including rent stabili-

zation board members, city attorneys, tenant legal-assistance organizations, program staff, landlords, tenants and the city manager — leaving some question as to the depth of the responses. Abrica and some rent-board members questioned why they weren’t asked to review the contract and weren’t privvy to how much the consultant was paid, he said. “Fifteen years ago, there was a review of the program. It was all above-board, and the rent board knew what was going on. This all came out of nowhere. East Palo Alto is not such a huge bureaucracy that the city manager could not communicate to the council and the board,” he said. The audit recommends achieving better financial health for the program, whose expenses exceeded revenue by $152,000 or 27 percent, according to a preliminary fiscal year 2012-13 budget. The program has a projected deficit of $107,000 or 18.6 percent for the adopted fiscal year 2013-14 budget. The program is funded by annual fees. East Palo Alto’s program has 2,325 regulated units and a $717,000 budget. The city should also establish specific guidelines for the administrator’s role so that she understands who is her supervisor and the limits of her job, the report notes. But staff, and in particular the administrator, may also have tooheavy a workload. Lamont’s announcement of her departure has stunned rent board members, who praise her work as exemplary. “Nobody but Carol could have gotten this program going the way she has,” board member Midge Dorn said. “It’s going to be very difficult to find somebody else to step into her shoes.” In light of Lamont’s resigna-

Public Agenda A preview of Palo Alto government meetings next week CITY COUNCIL ... The council plans to discuss the creation of a Parks, Trails, Open Space and Recreation Master Plan and hear an update from the Palo Alto Historical Museum about future plans for the Roth Building. The council will also consider a “utility tax modernization ordinance” to be placed on the November 2014 ballot and a proposal by council members Burt, Holman and Schmid to dedicate as parkland a 7.7-acre site near Foothills Park. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 24, in the Council Chambers at City Hall (250 Hamilton Ave.). COUNCIL POLICY AND SERVICES COMMITTEE ... The committee plans to discuss moving Avenidas and Palo Alto Community Child Care out of the city’s Human Services Resource Allocation Process; discuss proposed changes to the Cubberley Artists Studio Program; and consider terminating the city’s lease with Stanford University for the Southern Pacific University Avenue Depot Transit Center. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, in the Council Conference Room at City Hall (250 Hamilton Ave.). BOARD OF EDUCATION ... The board will discuss renewal of the school district’s lease of Cubberley

tion, Dorn raised doubts about the city manager’s supervision of the program. “It would be better if the program was being supervised by the city attorney. It’s a law that was passed, and the city attorney should oversee it, not the city manager, because her job is to handle policy and not law,” she said. The city manager has not come to any board meetings, but the city attorney regularly helps the board. The audit is a public document, and it should have been released, she added. Gonzalez did not return a request for comment. Board member Shryee Randolph, one of two members interviewed for the audit, said she supports Lamont. “I feel like Carol is a very dedicated, hardworking person. She cares about the community and she is doing a good job. She’s very professional. Even if you talk to landlords, she tries to work with them and she tries to be fair,” she said. Randolph said the audit interview took about five minutes and the interviewer only asked a few minor questions. “I told (the interviewer) the same thing I’m telling you,” she said. “If we lose (Lamont), the rent stabilization board would suffer so much,” she added. “The City of East Palo Alto needs the rent board and someone who cares about the people in this community. Carol loves the people of this community. I’m not sure she wants to go. There may be something going on that she feels she has to leave. Maybe she can’t work under certain conditions.” N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@ paweekly.com.

April 11, 1918 – February 6, 2014 Elizabeth Anne Hoff Stultz of Palo Alto, CA, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2014 in Palo Alto, California. Elizabeth was born April 11, 1918, to Vera Helen Schmitt Hoff and Albert Stephen Hoff in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She attended the Lake School for Girls, Downer Seminary, Wheaton College, and Northwestern University. Toward the end of World War II, Elizabeth married the love of her life Ensign Raman Wilson Stultz who was a flight instructor in the U.S. Navy. They lived for twenty years in Winnetka, Illinois where they raised their son and daughter, enjoyed many long friendships, and contributed to the community. Elizabeth was active in the Illinois Children’s Home and Aid Society and in Christ Church. In the late 1960s Elizabeth and Raman headed south for new adventures. They lived in Guadalajara, Mexico for a few months and later managed the Oyster Pond Yacht Club on the Caribbean island of Saint Maarten for a season. Their next adventure took them to Sarasota, FL, where they marketed and sold units during the development of the Pelican Cove Condominiums. Elizabeth and Raman also bought property at Pelican Cove and enjoyed a rich social, spiritual, and recreational life in Florida for thirty years. They were avid members of the Bath Club and Mission Valley Country Club. Elizabeth and Raman moved to California in 2004 to be near their son and his family in Palo Alto. In her late eighties, Elizabeth continued to do crosswords every day, play golf and bridge, and engage happily with family and friends. As a volunteer, she tutored people from abroad to improve their spoken English and helped at Stanford Blood Center until the age of 94. Elizabeth and Raman enjoyed 67 years of marriage before Raman’s death in 2011. Their love for each other and the fun they had together brought joy to the entire family. Throughout her 95 years, Elizabeth had a special grace about her as well as an alert and questioning mind. Everyone who met her liked her. She listened well, asked questions, and stored all the information in her very keen memory. She loved to read and patronized the local library. She delighted in conversation with family and friends, sharing joys and sorrows, and extending generosity and understanding to others. As a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Elizabeth embraced each person with love, patience, and faith. Elizabeth is survived by: her son and daughter-in-law, Rick and Josie Stultz of Palo Alto, their daughter and son-in-law Julie and Jacob Fine of Amherst, MA, and their son Dave Stultz and his partner Molly Bowditch of Madison, WI; her daughter and sonin-law Judy and Charles Scott of Saint George, VT, their daughter Andrea Scott, their son Teal Scott and his partner Lida Winfield, all of VT, and their daughter and son-in-law Jessica Scott and Abel Russ of Washington, D.C. She is also survived by her greatgranddaughters Meira and Nessa Fine of Amherst, MA. A memorial service will be held at Trinity Church, 330 Ravenswood Ave. in Menlo Park and 3 PM Friday, April 11. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be given in her memory to the American Red Cross. PA I D

Lee Lewis Harwood May 21, 1917 – March 2, 2014 Our remarkable 96-year-old mom, Lee Lewis Harwood, died peacefully at The Sequoias in Portola Valley, CA with family at her side on March 2, 2014. We will miss her whimsical sense of humor, good nature, intelligence and joyous appreciation of friends, music, animals, nature, and other cultures. She graduated from Stanford, where she met our father, Wilson; they were married for 69 years. Their pioneering spirit and Wilson’s consulting career kept them traveling internationally into their 90s. During their first 50 years together, Mom set up 25 households all over the world, including Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Iran, Peru, England, Kuwait, Egypt, and both coasts of the U.S. Mom lived by the motto, “Think Globally, Act Locally”. Her paid positions were as a social worker, secretary to the Turkish Ambassador to Kuwait, and poll worker in Portola Valley. In the 1950s, she worked with the League of Women Voters to get the DC vote, volunteered with her daughters’ Girl Scout troops, and successfully lobbied for a music program in the DC elementary schools. Overseas, she started a band at the American School of Manila, helped establish a new orphanage in Tehran, and assisted in launching a health clinic for the wives of Peruvian railroad workers. After returning to the U.S. and settling in CA, she re-joined the League of Women Voters, played in the Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra, and reported on international subjects to her “Current Events” women’s club. She served as President of the Community Committee for International Students at Stanford and “adopted” foreign students each year, many of whom remained lifelong friends. During her 26 years at the Sequoias retirement community, she actively volunteered on numerous resident committees. As editor of The Sequoian newsletter in the late 1980s, she initiated the transition from typewriter to Desktop Publishing. Mom raised us—Margaret “Peg” Milledge (Palo Alto, CA), Sara Arnold (Lexington, MA) and Lewis Harwood (Bethesda, MD)—with love, gentleness and a belief that we could accomplish anything we decided to pursue. The myriad songs she taught us in the car as we crossed the U.S., explored the Philippine islands, and wandered through the Persian desert, have been passed on to her five grandchildren, Eric, Michelle, Alison, Wilson and Max, as well as her six great grandchildren. Lee’s life will be celebrated with music and memories at The Sequoias, 501 Portola Road, Portola Valley, CA, Saturday, May 10, 2014, 2:00 p.m. Donations may be sent to KQED, League of Women Voters, or the Sequoias’ Tomorrow Fund.

She worked as a systems analyst for companies such as Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale and CrownZellerbach, a paper company in San Francisco. She moved to San Francisco in 2000 and retired two years later. She enjoyed being active — playing tennis, running and riding a bicycle. Later in life, she tried out the sport of golf. She also explored the United States and particularly lingered in Hawaii and New York. Most recently she took a trip to New Orleans. She is survived by her daughter Lezlee, son-in-law Julian and two grandchildren, Justin and Jaiden Ware — all of San Francisco.

Peter Lucy Peter Lucy, a psychiatrist and a third-generation Palo Altan, died on March 13 in Mountain View after a two-year battle with colon cancer. He was 64. He was born on March 11, 1950, and was raised in a house built in 1910 by his great-uncle on Homer Avenue in Palo Alto. Late in life, he intended to turn the home into the office of the Linda

Haskell House, named for his late wife, which was to provide lowcost psychiatric care and help for battered women. A graduate of Palo Alto High School (class of ’68) and Stanford University, he went on to study at the New York University School of Medicine, where he graduated in 1978. He completed his residency in psychiatry at Stanford in 1982, and later received a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry. Most recently, he resided in Los Altos for at least 20 years. In 1992, his wife Linda Haskell was killed in a car crash caused by a drunk driver; he was also critically injured. He later lectured before Mothers Against Drunk Driving and often spoke out against drunk driving.

OBITUARY

Angelos Dellaporta February 8, 1917 – March 6, 2014 Dr. Angelos Dellaporta passed away peacefully at home on March 6, 2014 at the age of 97. He was born February 8, 1917 on the Greek island of Kefalonia. He attended medical school in Freiburg, Germany; served as a medical intern at the Charite Hospital in Berlin during WWII; and as a resident at the University of Vienna in Austria. He achieved the highest medical degree available in Europe, that of Doctor Medizine Habilis. After the war he was invited to continue his medical practice and research in the United States. He married Penelope Metaxas in June of 1954 and together they lived in Buffalo, New York; Vienna, Austria; and San Francisco. When the new Stanford Hospital was built in 1959, they moved down the peninsula and settled in Atherton, where they brought up their 4 children. Dr. Dellaporta became known in the medical community for his groundbreaking work in treating glaucoma, retinopathy and macular degeneration. He found great satisfaction in developing simple, yet bold solutions to difficult medical problems. From 1967 -1972, he served as Head of the Division of Ophthalmology at Stanford Hospital. He was a member of the Stanford clinical faculty and consultant to the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital, teaching residents and helping grateful patients for many years. He also published numerous articles on his medical research and the history of ophthalmology over the course of his long career. He enjoyed sharing medical knowledge with colleagues around the globe, while learning more about the culture, art and history of other lands. Dr. Dellaporta continued seeing patients in private practice into his eighties, until his own failing eyesight made it difficult, and he was proud to be instrumental in founding the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford. He continued learning and teaching through his final days. He is survived by his devoted wife, Penelope; his four children, Angela Dellaporta, Marina Marguet, Elizabeth Daschbach and Nicolas Dellaporta, and their spouses, John Richards, Mark Daschbach, and Lynn Dellaporta; by his beloved grandchildren, Alexandra Codina, Sarah and Andrew Daschbach, Michael and Jessica Marguet, and Matthew Dellaporta; by his sisters, Kalerga, of Athens, Greece, and Sophia, of Houston, Texas, and many other loved family members. We extend our heartfelt thanks to his caregivers, Margaret, Luisa and Prad, who gave him wonderful, loving care and companionship for many years; and also to the Pathways Hospice team, who were so knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. We are grateful for all that our father gave in his life: for his contributions to the medical community; for inspiring in us a love of our Greek heritage; and for his unwavering devotion to his family, whom he supported and advised with great integrity. He was a man of honor and generosity. A private memorial is planned. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Byers Eye Institute at Stanford (stanfordhospital. org/eyeinstitute) or to Pathways Hospice. PA I D

Editorial Foothills mystery parcel proposed as park addition Small city-owned parcel next to Foothills Park, subject of secret Council meetings in 2012, resurfaces in proposal to dedicate as parkland

A

piece of property at the base of Foothills Park’s beautiful Las Trampas Valley, once the subject of closed-door discussions about selling it to developer John Arrillaga, has now resurfaced with the opposite intent. The 7.7-acre site, located beyond the group picnic area parking lot at the very end of the road in Foothills Park, was given to the city in 1981 by the Russel V. Lee Trust. For unknown reasons it was never formally added to the park or dedicated as parkland. In fact, for some seven years, between 1996 and 2003, it was leased to Arrillaga for use as a storage and staging area for construction of his estate. The parcel has never been accessible to the public and has amounted to a buffer between the park and a large privately owned compound that includes Arrillaga’s residence, a private lake and arboretum. The city has allowed Acterra, the environmental organization that oversees native-plant management and restoration in the nearby Arastradero Preserve, to operate a small nursery on it. In addition to the parcel, the Lee Trust also gifted the city an easement over a dirt road that provides access from Los Trancos Woods Road in Portola Valley. In what would otherwise have been an unremarkable and minor proposal to their City Council colleagues, a memo from Councilmembers Pat Burt, Greg Schmid and Karen Holman reveals that the 1981 gift came with a deed restriction requiring the city to use the property for “conservation, including park and recreation purposes.” The revelation that the land came with those requirements raises even more questions about the propriety of the city’s discussions with Arrillaga in the fall of 2012. In September 2012, unknown to the public at the time, the Council discussed in closed session an offer by Arrillaga to purchase the land for $175,000. Council members secretly visited the property in small groups to avoid the Brown Act’s notice requirements, which might have drawn public attention to the possible land sale. While the closed-door discussions were disclosed on council agendas as a “discussion on price and terms of payment” of a parcel identified only by parcel number, a Public Records Act request by the Weekly resulted in the release of a draft sale and purchase agreement for the land prepared by Arrillaga and emails between staff and council members making arrangements for visits to the property. At the time, the council was also in the midst of discussing Arrillaga’s massive proposal to develop office towers at 27 University Ave., and the secrecy of the foothills property negotiations raised questions about why the city was negotiating to sell a piece of public land to a developer with whom it was also negotiating a major development project. At the time, neither council members nor city staff would publicly discuss the issue since it had been considered in closed session. Although City Attorney Molly Stump said the item would be placed on a regular council agenda so the public could learn what was under consideration and why, no such discussion ever occurred and the matter apparently simply died without further action. The public was never informed about the reasons or circumstances for any of the city’s actions, including why it would enter into negotiations without having first discussed the policy issue, in public, of selling a piece of city-owned land. With the revelation that the land was a gift to the city and came with a deed restriction limiting its use, we now wonder why the sale of this property was even brought to the City Council for consideration. Why all the secrecy about this parcel, and why are we only now learning the background? Councilmembers Burt, Schmid and Holman are right in bringing this item forward in a way that shines a light on the history of this parcel and how it was handled by the council two years ago. Their recommendations that the parcel be dedicated as parkland, evaluated for alternative public uses and be permanently opened for public access is more than 20 years overdue, and we presume the full council will endorse those actions. Now would also be an appropriate time for the city staff to explain to the public why, given what is now known about the history of the property and its deed restrictions, it ever entertained selling the property and failed to disclose these details or hold a single public discussion about them.

Spectrum Editorials, letters and opinions

Caring about residents Editor, I have been a resident of Palo Alto for 12 years and a homeowner in Barron Park since 2005. My three kids attend Gunn and Terman, and I am a minister in a local church. I’m writing to strongly urge the city to step in and act on behalf of our neighbors and friends at Buena Vista mobile home park. I would ask the city to do all it can to encourage and persuade the owner to sell to the residents or a nonprofit developer for a fair price in order to preserve the low-cost housing in Palo Alto, and most importantly to allow people who are already thriving and part of our community to stay in their homes and schools. I understand the need and right for the property owner to receive a fair price, but I believe a mutually beneficial solution can be found if all are willing. In addition I would ask the City to consider using the Maybell loan money to support the residents during this time of upheaval. It is incumbent on every member of the community to care for and care about every resident and the situation they are facing, especially when money and power are not on “their side.” This is a community issue and one we are all part of whether we are residents or not. I implore the council to act on the community’s behalf in this situation. Liz Milner Julie Court, Palo Alto

Servants or masters? Editor, Recall that Thomas Jefferson warned us that liberty requires vigilance — that’s We the People keeping watch over the politicians, not the other way around. What happens when public servants become public masters? Here are a few examples: By governmental decree: Thou shalt rezone thy suburb for highdensity housing projects alongside the “transit corridor” (i.e., train), though these foist urban squalor on suburbia, and no one in his right mind wants to live in them.

Breaking the rules Editor, Laws are made to be broken? Really? How about when a highpriced private girls school like Palo Alto’s Castilleja admits to violating since 2002 a city ordinance limiting student enrollment to 415? How about the City’s Code Enforcement failure to compel over-enrollment reduction from 448 to 415 that has continued illegally now 12 years later? How about the City Manager and Planning staff allowing anyone to defy and make a mockery of its Conditional Use Permit by interpreting the conditions as it wishes? How about the laws of honor and integrity that a school purporting to build character and good citizenship flunks Ethics 101 by cheating on enrollment and breaking scores of forgotten promises including a parking garage and alleviating traffic, parking and safety woes of its neighbors? Is it moral for a group with wealth and power to

pursue its ends of expansion if it must trample the laws of society? Vic Befera High Street, Palo Alto

Green Acres grab? Editor, One of the questions that came up often during the Maybell/ Clemo affordable-housing project debate was whose neighborhood it was in. It was generally believed to be in Barron Park. But one of the photos accompanying the Weekly’s Feb. 28 profile of Green Acres identifies a lovely two-story Maybell home on a narrow lot as being in Green Acres. This home lies several lots towards El Camino from the Maybell/Clemo site. If correct, this would mean that everything between Maybell and Arastradero, including the proposed project site, is in Green Acres, not Barron Park. Some of the loudest voices for blocking the project came from Green Acres, which argued that proximity, appreciation of the orchard’s fine qualities and reliance on Maybell to get in and out when Arastradero traffic was tied up gave it special standing to ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÓ{)

Guest Opinion

Palo Alto students of color have a strong support group by Anna Waring

A

s executive director of Foundation for a College Education (FCE), one of the college access organizations mentioned in a March 7 article, “Minority Palo Alto graduates reflect on the good and the bad,” I would like to explain our mission with your readers. Currently, more than half of the approximately 70 high school students FCE works with each year attend school in the Palo Alto Unified School District through the Voluntary Transfer Program (also known as the Tinsley program). Because of our long history of working with students who attend schools in Palo Alto, I think I can lend some additional insight into the students’ experiences covered in the article. The mission of the FCE is to increase the number of students of color who graduate from a four-year college or university. Our involvement with students begins in ninth grade and continues until they complete their four-year degree. Our motto is “high expectations lead to high achievement,” and our approach has shown great success. Eighty-five percent of our students graduate from college in five years, compared to the national average of about 50 percent. More significantly, FCE’s college completion statistics are more than three times the national average for low income or students of color.

The foundation was created in 1995 to help students from East Palo Alto achieve their dream of attaining a college degree. Through our comprehensive programs, students and parents learn to navigate the complex journey to and through higher education. We ensure that FCE high school students are enrolled in at least four collegepreparatory courses each year, that they understand the a-g course requirements, and that they engage in extracurricular activities. In addition, we take students on college tours, host college representatives at our offices, offer SAT prep classes and provide extensive guidance to our students as they apply to college. But, even more importantly, we provide a community that takes their hopes and dreams seriously and provides them with the support they need to achieve them. Our early parents believed they had done the right thing by enrolling their students in Palo Alto schools, yet the chance of attaining admission to a four-year college was not significantly improved for having had their children in one of the best public school systems in the state. How could that be? And what should they and other parents know to ensure that this would not happen in the future? They turned to FCE to help provide the answers and to help them learn how to be advocates for their children. It is in the context of our work with students and families who attend PAUSD schools that I make the following observations. s!STHESTUDENTSINTHEREPORTINDICATE for the most part, they are very appreciative of the quality of the education they receive

in Palo Alto. FCE students go to a variety of colleges from CSUs, UCs and public and private colleges throughout the country, and they feel well-prepared academically for college. The vast majority of our students graduate within four (64 percent) or five (85 percent) years. We, and they, understand that their strong academic preparation in elementary and secondary school contributes to their college success. s4OOMANY THOUGHNOTALL OFOURSTUdents report teachers and counselors who underestimate their potential and often provide incorrect information to them. Frequently, our students are told to drop tough classes because they are not needed for graduation. (That is why FCE supported aligning PAUSD’s graduation requirements with UC admission requirements.) Some are also told because they speak Spanish at home they need not take a foreign language. Our students and their parents often do not understand why teachers and counselors would give advice that is undermining their dreams and aspirations. Fortunately, through our curriculum, both students and parents have the knowledge and the confidence to advocate for themselves. s 7E KNOW THAT OUR PARENTS LOVE THEIR children and care for them. However, since the vast majority of students in our program are the first in their families to enroll in and graduate from college, their families are lacking the prior knowledge and social, human or economic capital that comes from having people in one’s family who have attended college. FCE provides most of the same offerings that for-profit educational consultants provide for families with more economic means.

s 7E SEE NO PROBLEMS WITH PROVIDING support for students and families. I think of my very talented staff and volunteers as trusted guides on a challenging journey. No one finds it unusual to hire a Sherpa to help on a trek in Nepal or a coach to help an athlete improve his or her performance. The college admissions process is daunting; seeking and expecting help along the way is smart, not an indication of a student’s lack of preparation. Some may refer to this help as hand-holding; however, I don’t see holding someone’s hand as a problem but rather as a sign of caring and affection. None of us have achieved anything in our lives without a helping hand, so we at FCE offer our hands freely to young people and their families who request help. We also instill in our students and families the need to offer a hand to others. Finally, I am deeply honored to do the work I do. I am fortunate every day to work with young people who want to improve their lives and the lives of others in their families. FCE graduates (there are now 69) are teachers, engineers, social workers, graduate students and even an elected official. American society is better because these young people are educated and contributing in positive and meaningful ways to their community. But, I am aware that FCE needs to exist because public education, even in a district like PAUSD, fails too many students of color by underestimating their potential and undercutting their dreams. That is a shame for the individual students affected but also for the larger community. N Anna L. Waring is executive director of the Foundation for a College Education.

Buena Vista appraisal Editor, The 2013 appraisal of the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park, commissioned and paid for by the owner, Joe Jisser, claims that the appraised value as a mobile home park is the same as it was in 2012, and includes an estimated three to six months probable marketing time (this could be much shorter and simpler with ready buyers who have already made an offer). It also alleges that with the current RM15 zoning and with the proposed increased RM-40 zoning it has exactly the same appraised value. The claim is that higher construction costs exactly offset the increase in value due to the proposed increase in density. If this were true, there would be no reason to apply for a zoning change. There is no update since 2013. Margaret Fruth El Camino Way, Palo Alto

Free shuttle system Editor, I am a 13-year-old student of Jordan Middle School and am writing to you as a member of Boy Scout Troop 57. I wanted to express my opinion about Palo Alto’s traffic crisis and how this proposed extension of the shuttle program could seriously help the issue. This proposal would boost the funding for the Palo Alto shuttle program by $1.4 million, which would go towards increasing the frequency of popular shuttle routes and establishing new ones. Some new routes would connect southern Palo Alto with northern Palo Alto and support transportation to the Stanford Shopping Center and the downtown area. I tend to think of Palo Alto as a city of mostly middle-class families with kids in the school system. The traffic problem wouldn’t be so if every car was filled with three to four people. There would be far fewer cars on the road. The shuttle routes could help lower the amount of cars that are in the downtown area that aren’t there to stay a while. It would be very beneficial and usable if I could just walk to the nearest shuttle stop and then be dropped off downtown. My friends are constantly in need of their parents to drop them off somewhere. This can lead to problems when their parents can’t take them somewhere for an hour, so they simply stay at home. What better way to solve all these problems than a free shuttle system that could take anyone from the neighborhood they live to the place they want to go in Palo Alto?

Who done it? Law professor creates mysteries that reflect real life

6iÀœ˜ˆV>Ê7iLiÀ

Lawrence Friedman

Stanford University law professor Lawrence Friedman is the author of a dozen mysteries, many in his Frank May Chronicles series.

by Carol Blitzer “Death of a One-Sided Man” by Lawrence Friedman; Quid Pro Books, New Orleans; 2013; 191 pages; $15.99

F

rank May is a soft-spoken, congenial lawyer — and the protagonist in half a dozen books in “The Frank May Chronicles” mystery series. He’s 44, married and has two teenaged daughters. Lawrence Friedman is a softspoken, congenial Stanford University law professor — and the author of the chronicles, along with more than 30 academic books, plus law-review articles and talks. He’s 83, married and has two grown-up daughters. He is by no means retired. Between working on several long-term law-related writing projects at once — on major criminal trials, 19thcentury English criminal law and privacy law, among others — he keeps office hours on campus and continues to teach American legal history and law and society. But in 15- to 30-minute chunks (make that crumbs) of time, he works nearly daily on what he calls his hobby: writing mysteries. “If I spend just a bit of time, but on a regular basis, it adds up. ... It isn’t my day job. I have fun. It’s not a source of tension or grief; it’s a source of pleasure,” Fried-

man said in his home. After earning his bachelor’s degree and two law degrees from the University of Chicago, Friedman briefly practiced law before entering academia. He came to Stanford as a full professor in 1968, later becoming the Marion Rice Kirkwood Professor of Law (and, by courtesy, professor of political science and professor of history). But all the time he was churning out those legal articles on contract law, human rights or privacy in the Internet era, he was having fun each day working on mysteries, honing his Frank May character. He self-published a couple, but most just stayed in the drawer. While chatting with the publisher of his “The Human Rights Culture,” Quid Pro, he asked if the company ever published fiction. Alan Childress said yes, agreed to look over a few, and accepted as many as Friedman would turn in — albeit under two conditions: He would turn over the entire series to Quid Pro, and he would agree to use his real name. So far, Quid Pro has published “Death of a One-Sided Man” (2013), “The Book Club Murder” (2012), “An Unnatural Death” (2012) and “Death of a Wannabe” (2011) under Friedman’s name. Earlier he wrote and self-published “Dead in the Park” (2011) and “The Corpse in the Road” (2008) as Lawrence Mayer.

Friedman said he knows at least five other law professors who write mysteries, pointing to fellow Stanford law professor Paul Goldstein, author of several award-winning thrillers. “Law professors write, are concerned with the law, so it’s not so strange to write mysteries,” he said. Many of his books, which are written in the first person, turn on wills and trusts, a subject he has taught. He never does specific research for a book but acknowledges that he does enormous amounts of research for his academic books, some of which spills over. Friedman, who has written about the history of mysteries, said his books “are not in the mainstream. ... Today, most successful writers, like Scott Turow, write about courtroom drama, with a lot of sex and violence. It’s not me.” His Frank May is a lawyer but not a criminal lawyer. And he’s not always the one who solves the mystery, though he certainly plays a pivotal role. His avuncular style seems to encourage people to come to him for advice; as each character drops by his office, he slowly builds his body of knowledge (clues) to finally figure out “who done it.” Friedman’s ideas for new books can come while walking across campus or reading the newspaper. One book that’s in a preliminary stage involves a man who “dies”

and goes to heaven, where he encounters his dead mother, who tells him that she was murdered and she knows who did it. He awakens and sets to work in real life to check out her story. He was inspired by a newspaper story of a boy who similarly died and spoke with his grandfather before waking up very much alive. Right now he’s got four books in the hands of his publisher and another six old ones that he’s thinking of reworking. “My style has changed, and there are aspects of the plot that I want to change,” he said. Friedman said he wants his books to reflect real life; that’s why he made May middle-aged, married with two kids. He was also careful to make his wife a sympathetic character, although more sensible than May. “Subsidiary characters have affairs, divorces — Frank cannot,” he added. Friedman said he likes to write about what he knows — and that includes a lot of older characters. And he allows May to not be allknowing, often having him say, “I don’t know about that, I’ll have to look it up.” His first-person mysteries are conversational in tone, with the dialogue ringing true. He said his role models are 19th-century writers Anthony Trollope and Jane (continued on next page)

Eating Out Not just another chain restaurant Unexpectedly good food and attention to details at Paul Martin’s American Grill by Dale F. Bentson aul Martin’s American Grill in Mountain View has pedigree along with serious money and know-how behind it. Co-founder Paul Fleming was also a founding partner of the Fleming’s steakhouse chain, P.F. Chang’s (which was sold in 2012 for $1.1 billion), Ruth’s Chris Steakhouses and others. Fleming’s partner in this venture is Brian Bennett, another skilled restaurateur. Fleming is regarded as one of the brightest restaurant concept developers in America and has won the Nation’s Restaurant Group “Hot Concept” Award three times. While his creations have been financial winners, none of them appeal to the foodie in me. I had my fingers crossed, hoping Paul Martin’s in Mountain View wasn’t another P.F. Chang’s, wasn’t another Fleming’s and wasn’t another glitzy oversized eat house. I wasn’t disappointed. The food was uniformly flavorful, the portions generous, the service excellent. The prices were not outlandish, and the decor was smart and contemporary without being ostentatious. At

The interior decor was warmed with woods and a polished floor. There were both booths and tables, and the space was broken into two dining areas. There were a dozen stools at the bar and community seating for another 20 adjacent. Wood blinds dimmed the busy outside world. Paul Martin’s seems to have

a menu to fit every possibility — lunch, dinner, dessert, wine, cocktails, beer, bar food, prime rib Sundays, wine night Mondays, fried chicken Tuesdays, and soon, Sunday brunch. Yet none of the menus were overly lengthy, which allowed the kitchen to focus on about 30 items plus a few sides and desserts. There were soups and salads, of which the baby kale Caesar salad ($8) with house-made croutons, Parmesan cheese, white ancho(continued on next page)

vies and house-made dressing was fashionably good. Many of the appetizers were meant to be shared. Spinach dip ($14), for instance, was a hot oval baking dish filled with Bloomsdale spinach, aged white cheddar cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. A stack of toasted, buttered French bread accompanied it. It was hot

and gooey with enough for two to four people to share. The jumbo wild shrimp cocktail ($19) had five of the meatiest prawns I’d ever seen, served on an oversized tray of ice with a properly piquant and tomatoey cocktail sauce topped with fresh grated horseradish. The crisp Town Dock calamari ($13) had been buttermilk-battered and was served with chili

aioli and house cocktail sauces. The salt-and-pepper wild prawns ($17), served on a plank, were also buttermilk-battered and served with pesto aioli. Both dishes fired the appetite. My favorite starter was the mesquite-grilled Castroville artichoke ($12) with pesto aioli. The tender ‘choke was buttery and lemony with smoky flavors. The mouthwatering salmon tacos ($17), also from the mesquite grill, featured handmade flour tortillas, a squiggle of chili aioli, blistered tomatoes, arugula and pickled onion. Tender marinated skirt steak ($24) with roasted maple-bourbon sweet potatoes and a pile of arugula was cooked exactly as ordered though it was hard to detect any maple-bourbon on the potatoes. The meat was fork-tender. The hoisin-marinated doublecut pork chop ($26) came with sautéed Brussels sprouts dressed with a warm bacon vinaigrette. Honeyed scents of the hoisin sauce wafted upward, leaving pleasant memories both pungent and slightly sweet. Grilled salmon ($23) with Meyer lemon vinaigrette, chilled quinoa and bulgur wheat salad was healthy and hearty. The free-range brick chicken ($21), a half of a flattened chicken, would have been healthy without the mountain of mashed potatoes and herb jus that ac-

The plate was garnished with sour dark Amarena cherries and whipped cream. The pear-huckleberry crisp had a crumbly golden topping of oats, walnuts and brown sugar. It was served warm with fresh pears and vanilla bean ice cream. All desserts were $9.

Tidbits by Elena Kadvany

MORE MARKET, PLEASE ... The California Avenue Farmer’s Market is set to expand this weekend, an unexpected boon from the city’s massive streetscape project for the area, which began this week. Starting this Sunday, March 23, the weekly market will extend an extra block down California Avenue to Birch Street, space that will accommodate 25 new vendors. It will still operate at the same hours, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. “The City of Palo Alto came to us and thought it would be an opportune time to expand the market because we’ve been busting at the seams with a long wait list,” said Ron Pardini, executive director of Urban Village, the organization that runs the market. “It’s also an opportunity to help promote the California Avenue downtown while the construction is going on and then continue to help draw people to those merchants that might otherwise be affected by the construction. We think it’s a positive for everyone.” New vendors are bringing in a host of new food and drink options. A major newcomer is the Manresa Bread Project, a retail operation that sells bread baked at David Kinch’s Michelin-starred Los Gatos

restaurant, Manresa. Manresa’s bread has only previously been available for purchase at Urban Village’s Campbell Farmer’s Market. Other new vendors include Beet Generation Juice (fresh vegetable and fruit juices pressed on site), Tru Gourmet (organic dim sum) and Ladera Granola. San Francisco-based spice retailer Spice Hound and San Bonito Tea Company will alternate every other week in one stall space. New meat slingers will include Barrett Farms, a poultry-centric farm in Lake County, Calif., that will sell wild game birds like quail and pheasant. Fogline Farm from Soquel will sell its fresh-processed chicken and pork. For pescatarians and seafood lovers, the market’s staple seafood vendor, H & H Fresh Fish Co., will be adding an oyster bar to its lineup. The market’s gluten-free baked good options will also expand with two new bakeries, Mariposa and Flour Chylde Bakery. Any Peninsulans familiar with Far West Fungi at the San Francisco Ferry Building will be happy to know the specialty mushroom grower and distributor is also joining the Cal. Ave. ranks. Other new farms will bring in kale

chips, nut butters, olives, rice and raw milk and cheese, Pardini said. On Sunday, Palo Alto Mayor Nancy Shepherd will do a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. to mark the occasion. A second musician will also be performing near the Birch Street end, Pardini said. Also new to the Sunday market will be an information booth and map of all the vendors, old and new. LURE + TILL OPENS ITS DOORS ... The new Epiphany Hotel opened its doors at 180 Hamilton Ave. in Palo Alto on March 10, with its trendy farm-to-table restaurant, Lure + Till, following suit last weekend. Whoever designed the restaurant couldn’t have asked for better weather for the opening — much of Lure + Till’s seating is al fresco along Hamilton. Even for indoor diners, sliding glass doors can be fully opened on warm days and nights, as it was this weekend. Passerbys also have a full view of the restaurant’s bar, which is serving up 10 craft cocktails to start off. Drinks range from the “Peninsula Punch” (kappa pisco, lemon and pineapple) to the “Schmandy” (brandy, mint, angostura bitters, lemon, scrimschraw pilsner). Prices range from $8 to $12 per drink. Lure + Till’s cocktail program is run by Carlos Yturria, who’s already well-established in the San Francisco bar scene. The opening food options are wideranging, with unique combinations and ingredients. Starters come in the form of various soups and salads:

baby-beet salad with apple smoked yogurt, wheat barriers and mustard greens ($14); kale salad with ricotta salata, currants, toasted almonds, sprouting legumes and a sherry vinaigrette ($14); green garlic soup ($8); Caesar salad with roasted chicken thigh, boquerones, romaine lettuce and parmigiano reggiano ($17); chopped salad with house-made pickles, hard-boiled eggs, asparagus, fennel, carrots and quinoa dressed in a sherry vinaigrette ($14) and a baby greens salad — pear, walnuts, shallot confit and radish ($8). Other small bites include deviled eggs with chive, shallot, mustard and aioli (three for $5) and flatbread with various spreads. Current entrees (“Sandos and mains”) are tagliarini (egg noodles, narrower than tagliatelle) with braised hen jus ($14), mafalde (ribbon pasta noodles) with pancetta ($15), a burger and fries ($12), fish and chips ($17), roasted chicken breast with cucumber and kale panzanella ($16) and a hanger steak sandwich ($15). Lure + Till also serves one Southern-style side: baked heirloom grits topped with a slow-cooked egg and house-made sriracha ($6). The kitchen is headed up by Patrick Kelly, previously executive chef at Gitane in San Francisco and Michelin-starred Angèle in Napa. N

If there were a valid critique to be given of “The Grand Budapest Hotel” — writer-director Wes Anderson’s latest, highly stylized ode to a place that might have been — it would be that Anderson has fallen victim to his own tropes. But you won’t hear that here. The film is just too much fun; and the fact is, it wouldn’t be nearly so enjoyable if it weren’t for Anderson’s over-the-top style. “Budapest,” like the bulk of Anderson’s work is a carefully crafted visual confection of dreamy nostalgia. The film’s sets are lush and saturated with color. Every shot is carefully choreographed, every hue deliberately tied to an evocative palate. It’s as if the character’s costumes were plucked directly from a Victorian-era illustrated children’s book: Prisoners wear striped pajamas, soldiers have epaulets on the shoulders of their tailored wool coats and jackboots on their feet. The heart of this outlandish caper-comedymurder-mystery takes place in 1939, on the eve of a fictional world war in a fictitious central-European country, the Republic of Zubrowka. It begins with the death of Madame Céline Villeneuve Desgoffe und Taxis (played by a latex-masked, liver-spotted Tilda Swinton). Madame D, as she is called, is the much-older lover of our story’s protagonist, Monsieur Gustave H. (vibrantly portrayed by Ralph Fiennes), the head concierge of the Grand Budapest Hotel, which rests high in the idyllic mountains of Zubrowka. Upon learning of her demise, Gustave and his recently hired lobby boy Zero (Tony Revolori), set off to pay their last respects — unwittingly thrusting themselves into the midst of a violent power struggle within the wealthy estate of the Desgoffe und Taxis. Gustave is framed for murder, imprisoned and breaks free — with the help of some rock hammers smuggled into the jail inside ornately decorated pastries, natch. A series of cartoonish montages ensue — with Gustave and Zero scurrying about by train, gondola, sled and motorcycle (often at an unnaturally accelerated speed, in a manner recalling the

tomfoolery of The Three Stooges) — collecting evidence against the real murderers and avoiding the authorities, Madame D’s greedy son, Dmitri (played with an air of cold, blueblooded entitlement by Adrien Brody), and his leather-clad henchman, Joplin (a glowering and fearsome Willem Dafoe). Due to the film’s breakneck pace and the myriad cameos from familiar Anderson collaborators, including Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton and Owen Wilson, the audience never really gets a chance to delve deeply into what makes the story’s leading men tick. As such, it could be said that the characters in “Budapest” are lacking in depth, especially by comparison to the Anderson’s previous work. Then again, “Budapest” isn’t meant to mirror “The Life Aquatic” or “Rushmore.” It is comic caper — more akin to 1963’s epic ensemble adventure “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” than 1967’s dialog-heavy “The Graduate” (which is rumored to be one of Anderson’s major influences). In “Budapest,” Anderson is not examining the faults, hang-ups and idiosyncrasies of individuals; he is examining the faults, hang-ups and idiosyncrasies of two colliding cultures. Gustave, Zero and all those who fight with them, function as a kind of personification of The Grand Budapest Hotel and the world for which it stands — a world where etiquette, poetry, literature and art are humanity’s greatest achievements. Anderson’s storybook stylization and his deadpan sense of humor work well before this most bleak of historical backdrops. In “Budapest,” Anderson is meditating on an era, which prompted Hannah Arendt to coin the phrase “the banality of evil” and inspired such works as “Life is Beautiful” and “Catch 22.” It was an absurd time and in “Budapest” Anderson proves he is nothing if not adept at capturing the absurdity of the human condition. Rated R for language, some sexual content and violence. One hour, 39 minutes. — Nick Veronin


Movies "*  Muppets Most Wanted ---

>Ă&#x17E;Ă&#x160;>Â&#x2C6;`Â&#x201C;iÂ&#x2DC;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x2030; Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x192;Â&#x2DC;iĂ&#x17E;Ă&#x160; Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x152;iĂ&#x20AC;ÂŤĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x192;iĂ&#x192;

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy being the Muppets. Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite felt creations have had some tough rows to hoe since the 1990 passing of their creator Jim Henson, including the deaths of other original Muppet performers (Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt), invaluable head writer Jerry Juhl, and musical contributors Joe Raposo (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Greenâ&#x20AC;?) and Jeffrey Moss (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Together Againâ&#x20AC;?). And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not talk about Elmo. Yet the state of the Muppet union remains strong, as evidenced by the new family musical comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muppets Most Wanted.â&#x20AC;? A self-aware sequel to the 2011 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Muppets,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muppets Most Wantedâ&#x20AC;? provides more testament to the enduring appeal of the post-Vaudeville likes of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the Great Gonzo, as well as the love and care they inspire in generation after generation of performers and audiences. Much as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Muppetsâ&#x20AC;? riffed on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Muppet Movieâ&#x20AC;? (1979), the new sequel takes off from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great Muppet Caperâ&#x20AC;? (1981) by at least nominally placing the latest adventure into the heist genre. When a Faustian booking agent named Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) comes calling, the Muppets eagerly sign on to a world tour, despite Kermitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reservations. Turns out Badguy (cheekily pro-

nounced â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad-geeâ&#x20AC;?) is in league with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most dangerous frog,â&#x20AC;? international criminal Constantine. Excepting his easily covered telltale mole, Constantine (Matt Vogel) proves a dead ringer for Kermit (Steve Whitmire), and a simple switcheroo later, Kermit finds himself in a Siberian gulag (presided over by Tina Feyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nadya) while Constantine takes his place with the other Muppets. The touring show turns out to be a cover for an elaborate plan involving museum thefts in Berlin, Madrid and Dublin, all leading to a big score in the Tower of London. Enter Sam the American Eagle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; amusingly repurposed here as a CIA agent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell doing Clouseau), who bicker over jurisdiction even though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re clearly made for each other. Director James Bobin returns and co-scripts with the likewise returning Nicholas Stoller (Jason Segel took a pass), while Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oscar winner for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Muppetsâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man or Muppetâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; contributes several new songs. McKenzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conchords partner Jemaine Clement turns up as one of about 30 celebrity cameos in the film. Human cameos, that is: With a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simpsonsâ&#x20AC;?-esque menagerie of characters to draw from, the Muppets have no trouble filling the screen with felt, and die-hard fans will no doubt grumble at the lim-

Miss Piggy, Kermit and the rest of the crew star in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muppets Most Wanted.â&#x20AC;? ited screen time afforded to this, that or the other Muppet. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a testament to the witty selfdeprecation of the Muppetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; current stewards that they even sort of have fans covered there, allowing the little-glimpsed Rizzo to make a crack about featuring new characters â&#x20AC;&#x153;at the expense of other, more well-established Muppets.â&#x20AC;? Such

self-reference sits comfortably along hip pop-cultural references for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rents: stylish parodies and retro musical numbers along with vintage Muppet gags (a detour to Plotpointberg, Gonzoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;indoor running of the bullsâ&#x20AC;?). In cannibalizing the past, these new Muppet pictures play it a little safer than they should, lead-

ing to climaxes that feel more rote than inventive (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reminded of that Kirk Van Houten song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I Borrow a Feeling?â&#x20AC;?). Quibbles aside, kids of all ages are better off in a world with Muppet movies in it. Bring on the next sequel. Rated PG for some mild action. One hour, 52 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peter Canavese

"6 Ă&#x160; 300: Rise of an Empire --1/2 This prequel-sequel-parallel plotline to Warner Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexy.â&#x20AC;? 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;300: Rise of an Empireâ&#x20AC;? 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 Dariusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; son Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). Xerxes hardly needs the added motivation, but Dariusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; adoptive daughter Artemisia (Eva Green) goes all Lady Macbeth on Xerxes, prodding him to restyle himself as a god among men. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unabashedly hard-â&#x20AC;?Râ&#x20AC;?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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Athenian shock combatâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abercrombie and Twitchâ&#x20AC;? 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. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C. The Lego Movie --Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another day in Bricksburg for Emmet Brickowoski (Chris Pratt, in hilariously bubbly mode), an ordinary, regular, generic construction worker Lego â&#x20AC;&#x153;minifigureâ&#x20AC;? in a disturbingly conformist world. With his â&#x20AC;&#x153;prodigiously empty mind,â&#x20AC;? Emmet is content to â&#x20AC;&#x153;follow the instructionsâ&#x20AC;? by rooting for the local sports team, drinking expensive coffee and singing insidiously infectious pop song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is Awesome!!!â&#x20AC;? while he works. But a freedom fighter named Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) informs Emmet he might be â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Specialâ&#x20AC;? prophecied by a wizard named Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman). The surreal narrative that follows riffs on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Matrix,â&#x20AC;? 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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;the piece of resistanceâ&#x20AC;? and aided by a team of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Master Buildersâ&#x20AC;? who â&#x20AC;&#x153;change everything,â&#x20AC;? Emmet sets off on his Heroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Journey. Rated PG for mild action and rude humor. One hour, 40 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

Fuhrer Museum. Clooney plays art historian Frank Stokes (patterned on conservationist George L. Stout), who presses for the importance of saving monuments from bombs, and art from Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grubby little hands. Stokes recruits art restorer James Granger (Matt Damon), architect Richard Campbell (Bill Murray), sculptor Walter Garfield (John Goodman), French art dealer Jean Claude Clermont (Jean Dujardin), theater director Preston Savitz (Bob Balaban) and British art consultant Donald Jeffries (Hugh Bonneville) to shadow troops and gain access to lost or endangered art. The aging â&#x20AC;&#x153;monuments menâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission requires them to submit to basic training and face life-threatening dangers in the field, but as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told again and again, the risk is worth the reward. Rated PG-13 for some images of war violence and historical smoking. One hour, 58 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C. Need for Speed -1/2 The silly action melodrama â&#x20AC;&#x153;Need for Speedâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; based on EAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular series of video games â&#x20AC;&#x201D; drags, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not talking about the races. It 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 problem is that the story and the pictureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tone amount to an alternatingly dull or annoying mess of tragic overtones, witless comedy and shoehorned romance. 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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;love-tapsâ&#x20AC;? off the road the Patroclus to Tobeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Achilles, Tobey winds up framed, imprisoned for two years and rage-motivated to win vengeance from Dino. Director Scott Waugh (the Navy SEALs ad â&#x20AC;&#x153;Act of Valorâ&#x20AC;?) ill-advisedly includes nods to superior vehicular movies â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Graffiti,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bullittâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speedâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not to mention the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cannonball Runâ&#x20AC;?ny plot point forcing Tobey to speed from New York to California in 45 hours. Tobey accomplishes this with love interest Julia (Imogen Poots) mostly riding shotgun (though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind the wheel for offroading in Monument Valley). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Need for Speedâ&#x20AC;? is like throwing a pile of car parts at the wall to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stick. Spoiler: nothing. Rated PG-13 for sequences of reckless street racing, disturbing crash scenes, nudity and crude language. Two hours, 10 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C. The Wind Rises ---1/2 â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I wanted to do was to make something beautiful.â&#x20AC;? 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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;something beautiful,â&#x20AC;? this one a hand-drawn fantasia about Horikoshi: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wind Rises.â&#x20AC;? 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. Nahokoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle with tuberculosis informs one of the storyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 geniusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tunnel vision. Despite showcase scenes of Horikoshiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams and test flights, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wind Risesâ&#x20AC;? in some ways is Miyazakiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most grounded film. Much of the film concerns the plodding work â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and gentle, if not delicate, soul â&#x20AC;&#x201D; required to achieve beauty, another way in which â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wind Rises,â&#x20AC;? possibly Miyazakiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swan song, skews to stealth autobiography. Rated PG-13 for some disturbing images and smoking. Two hours, six minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

Purchase of former Palo Alto ranch adds 148 acres to Monte Bello Open Space Preserve

F

or decades, coyotes, hawks and dusky-footed woodrats have roamed the secluded INE Ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Few other creatures, domestic or human, have been on this 148-acre Palo Alto parcel off Skyline Boulevard in the last 15 years.

Gone are the pigs, sheep, chickens and dairy cows that once traversed the property’s forests and grasslands. But the land could have new trails in the future. On Feb. 28, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District purchased the property for $3.6 million. The

Mike Williams, real property manager for the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, points to a map showing land recently acquired by the organization. The landowners’ name has been blacked out to maintain privacy. Page 34ÊUÊ>ÀV…ÊÓ£]ÊÓä£{ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

ranch is the largest addition to the Monte Bello Open Space Preserve in more than 20 years, and it was one of the largest private land holdings left on that scenic corridor, said Michael Williams, the district’s real property manager. When it is open, visitors will be treated to spectacular ridge views and opportunities to glimpse rare and protected species such as the California red-legged frog, the Western pond turtle, Cooper’s hawk, Sharp-shinned hawk and the San Francisco dusky-footed woodrat. New trails at INE Ranch would link Monte Bello to the north and Santa Clara County’s Upper Stevens Creek Park to the south. “A new trail could connect to (Monte Bello’s) Canyon Trail and Grizzly Flat Trail,” Williams said, pointing at a map showing the circuitous Grizzly Flat and the relatively straight Canyon. The property could also help the district complete the Upper Ste-

The acquisition also means the district can protect nearly all of the Stevens Creek watershed, Williams added. The district has wanted INE Ranch ever since 1974, when it purchased the first 760 acres of the now-3,133-acre Monte Bello. The same family had owned the ranch since 1957, when the grandparents of the recent owner purchased it, Williams said. (“INE” represent the initials of some of

the family members.) Two persons affiliated with the Midpen district lived on the property for years until 2009, according to Steven Abbors, the district’s general manager. After they left, a supervising ranger who lived on a nearby Christmas tree farm kept in touch with the landowner, the original owners’ granddaughter. When she decided to sell, she contacted the ranger, Williams said. The landowner has requested anonymity, he added. Rising to 2,200 feet at its main ridge line, the property lies along the San Andreas Fault. The fault is the tectonic boundary between


Cover Story two land masses, the Pacific Plate, where the ranch sits, and the North American Plate. The ranch, which has three creeks, two seasonal ponds and dozens of wildlife species, offers the varied habitat that comes with being on both sides of the fault line, Williams said. On a recent afternoon, Supervising District Ranger Dennis Danielson pointed to the distant ranges. “There’s Mt. Umunhum. And you can see the Gabilan Mountains, all the way to Monterey County. The San Andreas Fault is right down there,” he said, pointing to the green ribbon of Stevens Creek. The tree-lined creek, named for wagon-train pioneer Elijah Stephens, meanders below a tawny meadow. From somewhere in the trees, a scrub jay mimicked a hawk’s cry. Native grasses nodded in the early afternoon sunlight. Williams pointed to an aboveground pig-rendering pit, where butchered hogs were once cooked as a routine part of farm life. “We’ll assess the barns to see if bats or owls are roosting there and if the buildings are historically significant,” he said. The barns would be preserved if the roosting animals are found there, or if the buildings are historically important. If not, most likely, they will be left to decay, he said. Williams led the way toward a pond, where ribbitting tree frogs hopped into the water as visitors approached. One week prior, the pond was still dry. Deep earthen cracks, reminders of this year’s historic drought, were still visible beneath several inches of water after the late-February rain. But now the pond was alive with ripples. Skimmers traversed its surface, and small amphibians searched for aquatic insects in the murky water. Cindy Roessler, a natural resources biologist, squatted near the pond. Excited by the water movement, Roessler said they had identified two species of newts:

Biologist Cindy Roessler picks up a California newt while leading a training event at INE Ranch to teach new rangers how to identify species of animals and plants.

A small pond full of amphibious life at the INE Ranch is part of the latest and largest addition to Monte Bello Open Space Preserve in more than 20 years.

the Coast Range and roughskinned newts. It is mating season for the amphibians; masses of pea-sized eggs the consistency of Jell-O stuck to a thicket of submerged grasses and twigs along the water’s edge. A third newt species, the redbellied newt, is also found here. Historically, it was not known south of Sonoma County, making it a rare find for this area. Roessler wrangled a male Coast Range newt and flipped him on his back to expose his yellow underbelly. “On the base of each toe there’s a tiny black dot. Only the males have them,” she said. The dots are tacky, like a rubber glove, and the male will use them to hang onto his slippery mate during courtship, she said. After a mating dance, the male mounts the female and rubs his chin on her nose, she said. More eggs lined the pond, hanging off strands of water-logged grasses and algae like translucent pearls. These are frog eggs, most likely of the small green tree frog, although endangered red-legged frogs are known to occur here. A young garter snake, brilliant green, with a tree frog protruding from its mouth, abruptly slithered out from beneath the matted grasses beneath the biologists’ feet. “Can you believe how much

life there is in a pond?” Roessler said. The diversity of this place fascinates Williams the most. Standing in the grassland above the pond, he surveyed the rich diversity that has evolved along the two plates of the San Andreas Fault. He pointed to a line of oak trees. “There are black and Valley oaks (both deciduous) and Shreve’s and Canyon oaks (both evergreen). They form a neat edge of two zones,” he pointed out. Williams scanned the rolling humps of Monte Bello before him, the historic terraced vineyards, oak forests and mountains southeast to Mt. Umumhum. The 180-degree view ends with a conifer forest that includes a stand of Coast redwoods near a creek. Obtaining this land is in some ways as satisfying as the views. Years of relationship-building went into the INE Ranch purchase, Williams said. District goals have sometimes been met with public concern and mistrust over the years, with some property owners fearing the district would take away their property rights. In 2004, some coastal farmers became alarmed when the district proposed expansion of its jurisdiction to include the San Mateo County coast from southern Pacifica to the Santa Cruz county line, nearly tripling its total acreage. But the district only wants to purchase from willing sellers, Abbors said. Under the state’s Williamson Act, the City of Palo Alto and the

INE Ranch landowner had agreed in 1973 that the land would be used for agricultural purposes in exchange for lower property taxes. The district board voted on Feb. 12 not to renew the Williamson Act agreement, since the district is protecting the land as open space and since, as a government agency, Midpen does not pay taxes. Abbors said that is typical of the district’s land acquisitions and reduces administrative burdens, but the land could still have an agricultural use. The district has been allowing more grazing on some of its properties. Because biological assessments and trail studies must be done, the ranch will not be accessible soon — at least not to hiking humans. Back at the pond, the frogs were singing. Williams stopped to take in the sounds that have replaced the lowing cows and grunts of swine. Bobcats and even mountain lions roam here, he said. “Imagine this spot at night: the tree frogs, the red-legged frogs, the owls and the deer in the forest and the coyotes howling. There’s probably a major animal party here at night.” N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@ paweekly.com.

s the age-old adage goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Turning this idea on its head is a group of 330 volunteers who put together the biennial Treasure Market on Stanford University’s campus. “The donated treasures go in, we buy them, they go out and then the museum gets to buy new treasures,” Lois Sher, co-chair for Treasure Market, said of the event’s “treasure in, treasure out” tagline. “It’s kind of a fun exchange.” Treasure Market is a three-day fundraiser event to benefit the Cantor Arts Center. Taking place March 28-30 at the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation at Stanford, funds raised allow the museum to purchase new works for displays and exhibits. Since its inception, Treasure Market has raised $3.7 million that the museum has used to purchase more than 1,700 objects. The event has been running since 1958 when the Committee for Art at Stanford wanted to raise money for the museum. Diane Christensen’s mother was one of the founders of the committee. Back then, Treasure Market was an event they held every

four years. Christensen remembers helping her mother decide what to give. One year, her mother contributed some Asian art pieces she had collected over the years. It wasn’t that the pieces were old, they just didn’t necessarily have a need for them anymore. Many Treasure Market donors are like Christensen’s mother. Jan Thomson, a Stanford staff member, has provided some posters to the fundraiser before. “I had them for awhile, loved them and then, it’s time for something different,” she said. “Treasure Market is a wonderful place when you have things that are still in great condition and great quality and someone else might love. It’s a great way to get it to a great next home.” Christensen is the underwriter of this year’s expenses, allowing the committee to have a ware­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ{ä)

house in Menlo Park where people can drop off items on Wednesday mornings throughout the year. This will also ensure all proceeds from the event go directly to the museum. “We have been able to take the time to sort out some of the lesser things and so we have a lot of very nice things that will be for sale,” Sher said. Unlike a flea market, more like an antique store, it’s an “upper end kind of collection of things,” she continued. “Many items are donated by the greater

Stanford community so I always feel like I’m selecting from the closets or attics of Jane Stanford, a famous professor or a Nobel prize winner,” Mary Ann Nyburg Baker, the honorary chair of Treasure Market, said. Available for purchase is a wide array of items: first edition and autographed books and manuscripts, crystal antiques, porcelain, furniture, antique Japanese dolls in glass cases, silver, world art and much more. Susan Dennis is a volunteer for Treasure Market. “I always fall in love with a few of the pieces,” she said. “Drawings, prints, paintings, still life — I always come home with one or two pieces from every treasure

market.” According to Christensen, “Jewelry seems to go pretty quickly.” Thomson remembers buying an amber necklace one year that needed to be restrung. “My jeweler was amazed at what an extraordinary bargain I got because, in her world, it was worth many more times than what I had paid for it,” Thomson recalled. Thomson has also purchased her diningroom carpet, a kimono and a fur coat from Treasure Market. “I’ve never worn it, but you never know when it’s going to get cold enough,” she laughed. Volunteers spend the two-year period between each Treasure Market “sorting, pricing, studying what we have, finding out the background of the items donated,” Sher said. “We try our best to give good value as well as nice things.” Dennis, a graduate of Stanford’s art history department, is one of the lead volunteers who help to oversee the pricing and studying of gifted items. She works with local appraisers and experts on art to decide appropriate, yet affordable prices. Big-ticket items for this year’s Treasure Market include a German genre painting that could run $10,000 to $15,000. Also available is a Tibetan hat that is only made and given to dignitaries and a complete set of Royal Crown dinnerware whose owner said, “I wanted this very badly when we were in England. Then, when I got home I never used it,” Sher said. Two large, handmade, all-wood dollhouses complete with furniture and family will be available along with some stone African sculptures and handmade 1890 quilts. With the Arrillaga facility packed with tables, racks and glass cases, event volunteers assert there is something for everyone. “In a world where everything is done by

catalog purchases and Ikea, it’s the antiIkea because you can really personalize your space with unique objects that you don’t see everyday,” Dennis said. For those not interested in antiques, a new feature of this year’s Treasure Market will be a glass show and sale by four local glass artists: Johnathan Schmuck, Treg Silkwood, Demetra Theofanous and Dean Bensen.

2150 Cowper Street, Palo Alto Perfectly located in a serene and sought-after Old Palo Alto neighborhood, this gorgeous Cape Cod home artfully blends crisp East Coast style with the classic California indoor/ outdoor lifestyle. While every inch of the home beckons relaxed everyday living, the sophisticated design is also tailor-made for truly gracious entertaining. Built in 1936, the home has been meticulously maintained and tastefully updated for modern comforts with complete respect for its early heritage. ReďŹ ned and light-ďŹ lled rooms offer rich hardwood ďŹ&#x201A;oors, true divided light windows framing garden views, crown and chair rail molding, and paneled doors with original vintage hardware. A charming Dutch door leads to the private and idyllic rear garden where a large level lawn is surrounded by mature trees, colorful and fragrant ďŹ&#x201A;owers, and an expansive patio invites outdoor dining. Creature comforts take center stage throughout the versatile 4-bedroom, 3-bath ďŹ&#x201A;oor plan. The master bedroom, with en suite bath and dressing room, is traditionally located upstairs along with two other bedrooms and a bath, which are secluded behind a privacy door. While downstairs, and perfect for guest or an ofďŹ ce, another bedroom is situated off the foyer. ReďŹ&#x201A;ecting the ideals of taste and beauty from an earlier era, this delightful home presents a wonderful retreat just minutes from the cosmopolitan attractions of downtown Palo Alto, Stanford University, tech job centers, commute routes, and nearby top-rated schools.

Panthers will defend their Division V NorCal crown Saturday by Ari Kaye or the second year in a row and for the fifth time in six years, the Pinewood girls are heading back to the CIF NorCal Division V basketball championship game. Thanks to a strong secondquarter performance, No. 2 Pinewood was able to hang on Tuesday night and defeat sixth-seeded Capital Christian of Sacramento, 54-44, in Los Altos Hills. “Making it (to the NorCal championship game) was definitely a goal,” Pinewood head coach Doc Scheppler said. “Anytime that you return all your players from the previous year, and you win it last year, it’s definitely an achievable goal and a meaningful goal to do that again.” To make it to their second consecutive state championship game, the Panthers will have to go through top-seeded Brookside Christian, which defeated Eastside Prep, 64-50. The NorCal finale will take place at American Canyon High on Saturday at 10a.m. “We know Eastside, we play against them all the time,” Scheppler said of his team’s West Bay Athletic League rival. “It’s nice to play somebody different. Brookside Christian is playing well now. They beat (Capital Christian) by 10, we beat (Capital Christian) by 10. It’s going to be a real good game.” Although the Knights present a big challenge for Pinewood, the Panthers have bigger goals than simply making it to the state

Pinewood senior Leeana Bade scored 17 points in a 54-44 victory over Capital Christian on Tuesday to help the Panthers advance to the CIF NorCal Division V championship game this Saturday.

Stanford hits road to play at home

Cardinal seniors achieve their goal

tanford has played women’s basketball in hostile environments and in idyllic situations from Alaska to Puerto Rico. The Cardinal has opened the NCAA tournament in places like Missoula, Mont., College Park, MD, Norfolk, VA and Norman, Okla. This year, sixth-ranked Stanford (29-3) will be introduced to a couple of first-time experiences: playing South Dakota (Saturday at 3:30 p.m. PT on ESPN2), and playing in Iowa, home to the ‘Field of Dreams’ ball field and plenty of corn. The Cardinal, seeded second in the region, hopes the trip to Ames, Iowa will be the first step toward its own field of dreams and bring it closer to Nashville, home to this year’s Final Four.

ostseason action is no stranger to the Stanford men’s basketball team. The NCAA tournament, though, brings an entirely different atmosphere. The Cardinal (21-12), which received a No. 10 seed, meets 17th-ranked New Mexico (27-6) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in St. Louis on Friday at 10:40 a.m. (TBS) as part of the South Regional. Stanford ventures into the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2008, but the Cardinal has played on a big stage before. The current senior class won the National Invitation Tournament in 2011 on the floor of Madison Square Garden. Aaron Bright, who was forced to miss his se-

FOR OPENERS . . . In recent years, Sacred Heart Prep and Menlo School meeting in baseball usually meant only one thing — which team was going to take over the lead in the West Bay Athletic League race. Now, however, things are different with both squads competing in the PAL Bay Division. The local rivals met for the first time in league play on Wednesday with host Menlo posting a 10-1 victory to open the Bay Division season. The Knights (1-0, 5-2) broke the game open with six runs in the bottom of the third, sparked by Jared Lucian’s two-run double. Sophomore catcher Carson Gampell cracked three hits and senior Graham Stratford added two as senior Wyatt Driscoll tossed four innings of shutout ball to gain his third win of the season. While only one automatic berth into the Central Coast Section playoffs was available in the WBAL, the PAL Bay Division will receive five automatic berths for its seven teams this season. One of those teams with a good shot at an automatic CCS berth is Menlo-Atherton, which posted a 6-2 victory over visiting Half Moon Bay in another division opener Wednesday. The Bears moved to 1-0 and 7-2 as junior Matt McGarry held Half Moon Bay (0-1, 5-3) hitless over the first four innings, then relied on help from his bullpen. McGarry earned his first victory of the season with an eight-strikeout performance over five innings, surrendering just two runs on four hits and four walks. Seniors Erik Amundson and Brett Moriarty led M-A’s offense with two hits apiece, junior catcher Daniel KollarGasiewski added a two-run single, and shortstop Jordan Long smashed the Bears’ first home run of the season. In the SCVAL De Anza Division, both Palo Alto and Gunn couldn’t use their respective home fields to their advantage and dropped games. Palo Alto hosted first-place Wilcox (3-0, 9-1) and gave up three runs in the top of the seventh while dropping a 7-3 decision. Jack Cleasby had a double and Phil Lewis drove in two runs with a triple in the first inning. Paly fell to 2-1 in league (3-5 overall). At Gunn, the Titans (0-3, 1-8) were blasted by Mountain View, 18-4.

One of the biggest motivations for Stanford, which claimed its 14th consecutive Pac-12 regularseason title, is getting to stay home for regional play. Two wins in Iowa equals a berth in the Stanford Regional tournament next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to win there and come back here,â&#x20AC;? Cardinal coach Tara VanDerveer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to see we are all healthy and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the No. 1 goal. I feel we can beat anyone when we are healthy and playing well.â&#x20AC;? VanDerveer was a little surprised the Cardinal was asked to travel to Iowa, especially with first- and second-round tournaments available in Los Angeles and Seattle. But, hey, no big deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care where we play; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m itching to get back out there,â&#x20AC;? said All-American Chiney Ogwumike, who would feel comfortable playing a pickup game in the driveway of somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and getting the job done.â&#x20AC;? Ogwumike hopes she can help the Cardinal reach the Final Four for the sixth time in seven years, missing out last season when No. 4 seed Georgia knocked off thenNo. 1 seed Stanford, 61-59, in the Sweet Sixteen. Stanford is the second seed in the regional despite having fewer losses than any team with the exception of undefeated Connecticut and Notre Dame, having an RPI rating of three, and having the fourth-best road record in the nation. The Cardinal went 12-2 against teams in the NCAA field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The No. 1 seed did us no good last year,â&#x20AC;? VanDerveer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The seeding doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. We have to play well. Let this be a chip on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulder. I think it can be good for us.â&#x20AC;? Ogwumike said any perceived slight works to Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advantage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want as much fuel (added to the fire) as we can,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is putting themselves on the line. Everyone is stepping their game up.â&#x20AC;? All good news for VanDerveer, who watched USC beat the Cardinal in the semifinal round of the Pac-12 Tournament. The Trojans went on to win the tourney title,

VanDerveer said of leaving the state for the opening rounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They took it to heart. They realized that, hey, we have to fix things.â&#x20AC;? Stanford has won 24 of its past 30 NCAA tournament games dating to a second-round loss, at home, to Florida State in 2007. The Cardinal also remains the only basketball team, menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, to lose in the first round of the NCAA tournament as a No. 1 seed (1998). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we found our energy,â&#x20AC;? said Ogwumike, who took her last final exam on Thursday and is academically through with school work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more focused than ever before. The losses were a slap in the face and we had to shake ourselves. We have to go out there and assert ourselves, play aggres-

The Coyotes entered the conference tournament as the No. 4 seed. The host Cyclones and 10th seeded Florida State play earlier Saturday, with the winners meeting Monday for the right to play at Maples Pavilion. Ogwumike hopes to have those two final home games. She is the only player to rank in the national top 10 in scoring (26.8 ppg, third), rebounding (12.3 rpg, seventh), field-goal percentage (61.0, third) and double-doubles (24, sixth) through March 16. Stanford junior Taylor Greenfield hails from Huxley, Iowa, 17 miles southeast of Ames. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is unpredictable,â&#x20AC;? Ogwumike said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were excited when our name was called and then we looked and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ames?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A second later it dawned on us that Taylor is from Iowa and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to look forward to.â&#x20AC;?

Stanford baseball opens Pac-12 season Cardinal sends freshmen pitchers against USC for three-game home series

Stanford will have to hope its pitching holds up as the Cardinal is batting just .261 as a team. The Trojans started the year 7-0 but have gone just 3-8 since. They opened Pac-12 play last weekend with a 3-2 win over nationally No. 7-ranked Oregon, before dropping the next two of the series by 7-2 scores to fall to 1-2 in the conference. USC has been one of the most fundamentally sound teams in the country to date. As of the latest

NCAA stats release on March 17, the Trojans ranked fourth in double plays (23), sixth in fielding percentage (.984) and fourth in sacrifice bunts (28). USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup is highlighted by Kevin Swick (.375, six doubles), while the Cardinal is led by Alex Dunlap (.367) and Alex Blandino (.365). Austin Slater (.340) also provides pop in the middle of Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup, as he has driven in 12 runs to tie Blandino for the team lead. Slater ended a 10-game hitting streak, a career long, in the Cardinalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last outing. The teams will square off on Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. N

PREP ROUNDUP

Paly names Fung as new AD Ex-track coach brings years of experience in community to job by Keith Peters t didn’t take much of a search to find Palo Alto High’s new athletic director. The final choice was on campus all along. In fact, he was at the school’s track on Wednesday doing what he normally does. Jason Fung, 40, who has been coaching the Paly track and field team since 1999, was officially named the school’s new AD on Wednesday afternoon. The announcement was made on the Paly Voice’s Facebook page by Assistant Principal Victoria Kim. Fung officially will assume his new duties at the beginning of the new school year. He replaces 20-year veteran AD Earl Hansen, who announced his retirement following the 2013 football season. Fung was one of three finalists, a group that was pared to two before the final decision was made. “All these years of watching Earl do his thing, I wondered ‘can I do it?’ Fung said Wednesday while coaching the sprinters on the Paly track team. “I think this was a natural step in a career.” Fung grew up in the area, attended El Carmelo and JLS, graduated from Paly in 1992 and began his teaching career as the traveling physical education teacher for the school district’s

Jason Fung elementary schools. He later was a teacher’s aide at Paly’s alternative education school. He has coached the Paly frosh-soph football team in addition to leading the Vikings’ track and field squad to numerous league championships plus the school’s first Central Coast Section team title in the sport in 2012. “I’ve been a part of this community for 30-plus years,” Fung said. “There’s a lot of support here. If I didn’t have that, it would have been a little harder decision.” Fung has been on the Paly campus seemingly all his young life and looks forward to bringing a new energy to an athletics program that has seen great success over the years. He also will have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the school’s new $20 million athletics facility, which will get under way in June after the demolition of the current structures. “The next 18 months of this project will be hard on the athletics department,” Fung said.

Panthers made only seven of 27 Cougars 24-6, thanks to nine 3-pointers (26 percent) but shot 55 points from Bade and five points percent from 2-point range (12 of from Hing.

Hansen will stay on eight hours a week until the project is completed. He already has taken on all the new scheduling for next season, which will find all the Paly volleyball and basketball teams competing on the road, along with the wrestling team. Much of the scheduling already is complete. Finding gym time at other facilities in the area is already under way. “It’s exciting to be able to start something new,” Fung said of the new gyms being built. “I’m looking forward to being a staple here. I take a lot of pride with how the school does. I want to see this be very, very successful.” “He knows the community and knows the system,” said Hansen. “He’s very strong with all the behind-the-scenes stuff. He’ll be here 20 years.” Fung already is thinking about how to dedicate the new athletics facility. “We just had a celebration to honor the old gym and now we need to find a way to celebrate the new gym,” Fung said. “I’m already thinking Jeremy Lin.” Boys golf The Sacred Heart Prep boys traveled to the par-71 Meadow Club course in Fairfax for the Wildcat Invitational and shot a sizzling 8-over par as a team to capture their first tournament title in school history earlier this week. The Gators’ 14-shot victory was paced by Stanford-bound Bradley Knox’s 3-under par 68. Knox was awarded the silver medal as the second-place individual finisher after winning a playoff.

N teams give up if they are losing by 20 points in the second half,” Bade said. Heading into the NorCal finals, Hing is the only Pinewood player averaging double figures at 12.4 points a game. Bade is next at 9.8 while Eackles leads all rebounders with 7.2 per game. Eastside Prep, meanwhile, lost a chance at reaching the NorCal finals for a third straight season after falling to Brookside Christian. The No. 4-seeded Panthers, who trailed at halftime by only 23-22, finished 20-11 despite 15 points from Charmaine Bradford and 14 from Alexus Simon — the team’s only seniors — while junior Destiny Graham finished with 12. Brookside Christian was missing two starters, out with injuries, but got five 3-pointers and 21 points from Ariana Vaughn plus another 21 points from Sasha Brown. The host Knights opened the second half on a 12-2 run on Eastside Prep, which suited up six players and played just five. The Panthers are expected to have a larger roster next season and will have three returning starters, including Brije Byers and Chacitty Cunningham.N
