Meet our two very popular pediatricians, Dr. Sky Pittson and Dr. Sarah Cueva. Parents like that they can talk to them directly instead of going through a nurse. And kids like them enough to stop by on their bikes just to say “hi”. We think that’s pretty “sick”, or as some say, “cool”. If that appeals to you, we invite you to do what the kids do, stop by and say “hi”. Old-fashioned values. Modern medicine.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Palo Alto is a startup city. This is going to be a startup museum. —Rich Green, executive director of the Palo Alto History Museum, on why the city should financially contribute to the museum. See story on page 5.

Around Town

MORE COWBELL ... Stanford basketball fans might have been distracted from the team’s huge win over No. 2-seed Kansas in last Sunday’s NCAA tournament by a member of the Stanford band, now dubbed “the real star of March Madness.” Alex Chang, a 22-year-old Stanford senior, gave his all on the sideline, playing none-other than a cowbell with every fiber of his being. His performance immediately went viral online, and comedian Jimmy Kimmel even invited him to give an encore performance this week on his late-night television program, Jimmy Kimmel Live, with the show’s house band, Cleto and the Cletones. “Do you major in cowbell?” Kimmel asked Chang. “No, actually, I major in mechanical engineering,” Chang shot back. WALKING THE LINE ... While bicycle improvements and parking garages have been getting the bulk of attention in Palo Alto in recent months, the City Council shifted its focus this week to the most primitive form of transportation of all: walking. The city is now preparing a master plan for parks and recreation, its first such endeavor since 1965. The plan will consider the city’s recreational needs and suggest various short- and long-term improvements (spoiler alert: dog parks and athletic fields will surely be in the mix). It will also consider a thorny philosophical question relating to pedestrians: Should residents be forced to walk to recreational opportunities? Or is walking itself a recreational opportunity? The city’s consultant on the project, Lauren Schmidt of the firm MIG, said the effort will include extensive outreach at local parks (surveys during your next picnic?) and mapping technology that shows which parts of the city are more than half a mile from a park. Vice Mayor Liz Kniss, a prolific walker and a regular Stanford Dish hiker, was somewhat put off by the criteria and suggested that it might do residents some good to have to walk more than half a mile to get to a park. She noted that during her morning walks, she routinely passes seven or eight parks. “In our quest for walking and health and so forth, it might seem like it might be a good idea to walk more than half a mile to get to a park.” Councilman Pat Burt had another thought when it comes to

walking: It’s not just the distance that matters. It’s also barriers, whether train tracks or large boulevards with fast-moving cars (Alma Street and El Camino Real, for instance). “We do have some neighborhoods in the community that don’t have any park at all within their neighborhood without having to cross major dangerous arterials,” Burt said. The city, he said, should plan for “pedestrian arterials,” an effort akin to what it’s long been doing for local bicyclists through its Safe Routes to School program. WHERE IS TAKLAMAKAN? ... Five students from Palo Alto schools head to Fresno April 4 to compete against 95 other students from around the state in the California State National Geographic Bee. They are Challenger School fifthgrader Alan Liu, Jordan Middle School eighth-grader Paarth Sharma, Terman Middle School seventh-grader Arjun Prabhakar, Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School eighth-grader Benjamin Darnell and JLS Middle School seventh-grader Mihir Borkar The state winner will receive $100 and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent California in the national finals in May. To get this far, students had to win their school geography bee and then take a follow-up written qualifying exam. A sample winning question: The Taklamakan Desert, home to the Uyghur people, is located north of the Kunlun Mountains in which Asian country? The answer is China.

GOVERNMENTAL LEAPFROG ... Silicon Valley tech giants are backing a bid by U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo to become ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee,whose current ranking Democrat, U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman is retiring, the Washington Post reports. To do so, Eshoo would have to jump over the more senior Democrat, U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. of New Jersey. But she already has the backing of her close friend, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Silicon Valley Leadership Group CEO Carl Guardino. Guardino, who is circulating a letter expressing strong support for Eshoo’s bid, told the Post he is getting signatures of major players in the tech industry. N

Thomas Sage Wyman April 11, 1927 – March 17, 2014 Thomas Sage Wyman of Palo Alto died Monday March 17th of a brain aneurysm. Tom was born in Embreeville, TN on April 11, 1927 to Dorothy Sage Wyman and Thomas Noel Wyman. Because he graduated from Palo Alto High School at the age of 15 he attended San Jose State for two years before enlisting in the Navy at 18. Following his honorable discharge Tom ďŹ nished his BS at Stanford University where he also earned a Masters of Mining Engineering in 1951. Tom went on to work for Standard Oil of California (later Chevron) for 42 years. During that time he was active in his children’s activities including the Boy Scouts and the Snoopy Club. After retiring Tom became a very active member of the Palo Alto community where he and his wife Ellen were champions of slow growth. Tom and Ellen joined Friends of the Palo Alto Library in the late ‘90s and began managing the book sales that they grew to $10,000 per event. Tom later became the ďŹ rst Chairman of the Library Advisory Commission. Tom was also President of the Palo Alto Historical Association. Tom was an engineer at heart and his curiosity led him to author many articles and scholarly papers on a huge variety of subjects from energy policy to why early maps of North America depicted California as an island, to numerous articles on slide rules for the Oughtred Society Journal. Tom is survived by his wife Ellen, his children Tom and wife Susie of Boulder, CO and Susan of New Braunfels, TX and his four grandchildren, Casey, Mackenzie, Sammy, and Macey. A memorial service followed by a reception will be held 11:00-2:00 on Friday April 18th in the Lucie Stern Center Ballroom. In lieu of owers the family requests donations to Friends of the Palo Alto Library. http://www. friendspaloaltolib.org/ PA I D

David Barclay Kirby June 15, 1924 – March 15, 2014 48-Year Resident of Palo Alto David Kirby, a Bay Area public relations executive who started and managed Hewlett-Packard’s corporate PR department for 27 years, has died at age 89. He died on March 15 at the Sequoias in Portola Valley surrounded by family and friends. Dave was born in San Francisco in 1924. He grew up in Ross in Marin County and attended Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley. During World War II he served in France and Germany as a staff sergeant in the 89th Infantry Division, a unit of General Patton’s Third Army. After VE Day he served six months as an Army administrator in Paris. Following the war, Dave attended the University of California at Berkeley, graduating in 1949 with honors in journalism. During his senior year he was sports editor of the Daily Californian and president of Sigma Nu fraternity. He also was a member of several campus societies, including Golden Bear, Skull and Keys, Beta Beta, and the Fraternity Scholastic Honor Society. Following graduation, Dave worked as a copy editor on the San Francisco News, at that time one of four daily papers in the city. He later gravitated to public relations, serving ďŹ rst on the PR staff of Bechtel Corporation, then the Wine Institute, Kaiser Aluminum, and the L. C. Cole Co., an advertising/public relations agency in San Francisco. In 1962 he was asked by David Packard, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, to start a public relations department for the company. Over the years the department grew steadily under Dave’s direction, and when he retired in 1989, it had ofďŹ ces and staff in all major countries throughout the world. Following his retirement, Dave provided writing and editing assistance to David Packard for Packard’s book, The HP Way. Published in 1995, the book describes the origins of the Hewlett-Packard Company, the management philosophies and policies guiding its growth and success. Over the years Dave was active in a number of civic and community organizations, including the Palo Alto YMCA and Avenidas, the Palo Alto senior center. In 1960 Dave married Anne Nicolas, who had moved from her native Minneapolis to San Francisco a few years earlier. They married shortly after Anne had served on the public relations staff of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games in Squaw Valley, CA. When Dave went to work for Hewlett-Packard, they moved to Palo Alto and lived there for more than 48 years. When Anne predeceased him in 2010, Dave moved to the Sequoias retirement community in Portola Valley, where he lived until his death. Dave is survived by his three children; sons Daniel (Sheree) of San Jose and John of Portland, OR, and daughter Rachel Fitzgibbon (Robert) of Essex, MA. Also surviving are ďŹ ve granddaughters and a step grandson. Dave was an eighth generation American. In 1635 his English ancestor, Joseph Kirby, left Rowington, a small village near Warwick and immigrated to America, settling in Hartford, CT. A private memorial celebration of Dave’s life will be held the afternoon of Tuesday, April 22. Those wishing to attend please contact Rachel Fitzgibbon by April 8th at davekirbymemorial@gmail.com. Memorial gifts to Pathways Hospice Foundation, Sunnyvale will be appreciated. PA I D

Setsuko Takahashi Ishiyama

February. 8, 1915 - March 21, 2014

March 30, 1918 – March 15, 2014 Setsuko Ishiyama, a gracious and beloved member of the Palo Alto community for 62 years, passed away in her home on March 15, surrounded by her family. Setsu, as she was known to all, was 95. The daughter of Torao and Natsu Takahashi, Setsu was born in Los Angeles and grew up on Terminal Island, where her father was captain of a tuna fishing boat. After graduating from San Pedro High School, Setsu attended Keisen Women’s College near Tokyo. She developed strong friendships with Keisen faculty and fellow students during her two years in Japan and maintained those relationships for the rest of her life. In April 1942, shortly after the United States entered World War II, Setsu and her family were forced to leave their home for internment camps. Setsu and four of her younger siblings were sent to the assembly center at Santa Anita Racetrack and then to the Manzanar internment camp in the Owens Valley. Setsu was allowed to transfer to the Heart Mountain internment camp, near Cody, Wyoming, to be with her fiancé, George Ishiyama, to whom she had become engaged while in Los Angeles. George and Setsu were married in January 1943 in nearby Powell, Wyoming, and started their life together in the internment camp. After being released from Heart Mountain in 1944, Setsu and George moved to Tuckahoe, New York, where the first of Setsu and George’s four children was born. In 1946, Setsu and George returned to Los Angeles, where they reunited with their siblings and parents and completed their family with three daughters, one of whom, Dorthea, died shortly after birth. When the family moved to Palo Alto in 1952, Setsu quickly became involved in her children’s schools, first at Walter Hays, then at Jordan Middle School and Palo Alto High School. Members of the community still fondly remember Setsu sharing the Japanese traditions of celebrating Girls Day and Boys Day with dolls and kites. Her sense of humor, talent for getting things done, and unfailing good taste made Setsu a natural leader who bonded with a small group of other extraordinary Palo Alto women of that era. At the same time, Setsu began 35 years of service as a Pink Lady with the Stanford Hospital

Auxiliary, offering special attention to new mothers as they prepared to take their infants home. While busy with her own children and their classmates, hospital patients and cultural activities, Setsu also cared for her aging inlaws. When responsibilities at home lessened somewhat in the 1970s, Setsu increased the traveling she did with George, enjoying trips to Europe, Africa, and Asia, especially Japan. In later years, Setsu spent time at her home in Island Park, Idaho, on the banks of the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. She was especially happy to be out in nature, sharing beauty with family, friends, babies, and dogs. Setsu was a graceful athlete and later in her life channeled much of her enthusiasm into being a super fan of Stanford sports. For many years, she attended Stanford football games as a season ticket holder and also enjoyed track meets and tennis matches. Her passion, however, was for women’s basketball. From the arrival of Tara VanDerveer as head coach at Stanford in 1985, Setsu cheered the team at virtually every home game until she was physically unable to do so. To honor Setsu’s dedication to Stanford and to its women’s basketball program in particular, the head coach is now officially known as the Setsuko Ishiyama Director of Women’s Basketball. In addition to her family, Setsu was cared for by an extraordinary team of doctors, nurses, and caregivers who attended her with love and loyalty as well as the best medical attention possible. Setsu responded to these wonderful people with gratitude, frequently expressing her thanks and ensuring that all knew they were appreciated. Setsu is survived by her children Nelson Ishiyama (Terrie McDonald), Margaret Ishiyama Raffin, Patricia Ishiyama; grandchildren Elizabeth Raffin and Julia Ishiyama; brother Kenichi Takahashi; and numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by husband George, daughter Dorthea, brother Fumio Takahashi, and sisters Hiro Nonoshita, Kimiko Takahashi, and Mary Hirashima. Services have been held. Memorial donations may be made to the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden, 1431 Waverley St., Palo Alto, CA 94301. PA I D

Sheila Shadwell, a longtime resident and business owner in Palo Alto, died on March 21. She was 90. She was born in London, England, and emigrated to the United States in 1958. Except for a stint abroad in Bangkok, Thailand, she lived in Palo Alto beginning in 1962. In 1969, she opened the

London House English Tearoom restaurant on Ramona Street in downtown Palo Alto and ran it successfully for 24 years. After, she launched the London Aunts Travel Consultancy, which specialized in personalized itineraries to the United Kingdom. She enjoyed spending time with family, traveling and the culinary arts.

OBITUARY

Dorothy Canrinus (nee Tonietti) was born in San Francisco, the daughter of Italian immigrants, Simon Tonietti and Mary Marengo Tonietti. She grew up in Los Gatos with her grandmother, Lucia Marengo, and her uncle, Vincent Marengo. After graduating from Los Gatos High School, she attended San Jose State College where she received a secondary teaching credential and a first at tennis. She taught in Berkeley and Palo Alto before taking a teaching job at Los Gatos High School where she met her future husband, Fred Canrinus, then a coach and later principal of Los Gatos High. They were married on July 18, 1943, while Fred was on three-day shore leave from the war in the South Pacific. The couple had two children, Kathleen and Michael. Dorothy lived most of her life in Los Gatos. She helped found the Los Gatos Parent Nursery School where she spent seven years as director before returning to San Jose State and becoming a guidance counselor at Buchser High School in 1959. When her husband Fred retired, they moved to Santa Cruz. Shortly after his death in 1985, Dorothy moved to Palo Alto to be near her daughter. Starting in the early sixties and continuing for about forty years, she played cards once a week with Los Gatos friends, one of whom she’d known since before WWII. For the past twelve years, she resided at The Terraces in Los Altos where she received loving care from the aides who attended her. She also went on outings with family members several times a week. Dorothy enjoyed playing cards, spending time with family and friends, picnics, laughter, stories, music, and the mountains, but she will be remembered best for her remarkable spirit. In 1960, she suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident that left her partially paralyzed—without the ability to walk or speak clearly or write—and without a well-functioning memory. Yet in spite of profound losses, she would often say, “I’m so lucky.” It was clear what she meant. Choose something to feel lucky about. Choose it in the worst of times. Find it even when nothing can be fixed. Dorothy’s life for the past fifty-four years was the proof that it can be done. A few years ago, Dorothy was hospitalized for a life-threatening condition. Miraculously, she recovered. As she left the unit after being discharged, she called out to the staff: “Goodbye, thank you. I had a wonderful time.” Her words serve as a fitting epitaph. Dorothy Canrinus is survived by her daughter Kathleen Canrinus, her devoted son-in-law Donald Anderson, her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Frederick William Canrinus, her son Michael Anthony Canrinus (Francine Phillips), her parents, step-father John Hillebrandt, and her brother John Hillebrandt. Her daughter and son-in-law were with her when she took her last breath early in the morning of March 21. For information about a memorial service in the fall, please contact Kathleen at kcanrinus@gmail.com. Donations in Dorothy’s name can be made to Project We Hope, 1854 Bay Road, East Palo Alto, CA 94303. PA I D

Editorial Caution and skepticism needed on transit-center lease City staff hasn’t made the case yet for giving up long-term ground lease and allowing Stanford to regain control over site

I

t is ironic that at the very time the city is promoting a community discussion about the future of the area surrounding the University Avenue train station it would even consider giving up a lease that gives it substantial influence and control over the site. But that is what the Palo Alto city staff is recommending to the City Council and that will be reviewed by the council’s Policy and Services Committee on April 8. A complicated agreement with Stanford dating back to 1981 gives Palo Alto control over almost 3 acres that includes the train station and the bus transit center and parking areas around it. The lease runs another 19 years, until 2033. The train station itself was built and had been owned by Southern Pacific until 1981, when it gave it to Stanford, which then turned around and leased it to the city. Since then, the city has been subleasing the building and land to the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), which uses the property as its northernmost bus transportation hub and, in turn, subleases the train depot to a coffee house and a bike shop. The city has been breaking even on the arrangement, simply passing on the rent and tax obligations under its sublease to VTA. But that sublease expired last July and now continues on a monthto-month basis. Both VTA and Stanford want Palo Alto out as the master lease-holder. Until 1999, Palo Alto also held the ground lease for the area occupied by the Sheraton Hotel, MacArthur Park restaurant and the Red Cross building, but released it as part of a deal to reduce its lease fees to Stanford for the use of El Camino Park, which is also on Stanford property. It was Stanford’s regaining control over those lands that made John Arrillaga’s 27 University Ave. proposal possible. Stanford has not renewed its lease with the Red Cross, and that building will soon be vacant. The city staff argues that this whole arrangement is needlessly complicated and that the city would be better off relinquishing the 19 years remaining on the lease of the transit facilities and let Stanford and VTA work out their own lease arrangements directly. To bolster its argument, the staff points to a provision in the lease that permits Stanford to raise the lease rate substantially, from about $160,000 a year to over $400,000, on July 1, which the city would pass along to VTA. For reasons that aren’t clear, Stanford is so motivated to get back control over the ground lease that it is willing to let VTA use the building and land at no cost going forward if Palo Alto would terminate its lease with the university. And Stanford has pledged to take an active role in the maintenance of the area, including having its police force patrol it. (Or, as an alternative, Stanford has offered to hold the rent at current levels for two more years to give VTA and the city a chance to sort out options for the area.) The city staff offers no explanation for why VTA should receive substantial financial benefits if the city agrees to cancel the remaining 19 years on the lease it has with Stanford, while the city gets none. It does suggest that a memorandum of understanding be made with Stanford and VTA to spell out the city’s role and input in future plans for the area. We sympathize with the city staff’s desire to rid itself of the complications and obligations of its current lease and the need to negotiate and manage a sublease of the property with VTA. But long-term leases of valuable real estate are normally worth a substantial amount, and since the city holds zoning powers over the site this is especially the case. We find it hard to believe that the value of the remaining 19 years on the lease is not a substantial asset for the city, and wonder why we would want to relinquish that asset with no consideration. It is appropriate to question Stanford about its motivations and plans. Why is it that the university would forego substantial rental income in order to get Palo Alto to terminate its lease? With so much about the future of this critical area of the city up in the air and the subject of upcoming community debate, it seems like an unwise time to relinquish our leverage. The right move for Palo Alto is to maintain this lease, complete a comprehensive plan for the entire area, and then negotiate with Stanford the termination of the lease so that the plan’s vision can be implemented.

Spectrum Editorials, letters and opinions

Stop adding jobs Editor, The PA Weekly editorial about the jobs/housing imbalance in Palo Alto draws the wrong conclusion. The answer is not quality of life destroying over-dense pack and stack housing. The answer is to stop adding more jobs! It is time to renew the discussion of Palo Alto being a “sustainable” city. We have lost sight of the fact or never really understood that living sustainably means that we have to limit the number of people to fit the available resources of a finite world. The state of California has failed miserably to curtail population to fit available resources of clean water, clean air, open spaces, recreational opportunities and to provide a decent quality of life for its inhabitants, human as well as animal. If the state won’t do it, then we should do it city by city. Palo Alto should be the first to explore setting a population limit that is sustainable and then work towards a way to meet those limits. The first step is to stop adding jobs when we cannot house those workers without detriment to our city’s quality of life expectations and the finite limits of our environment. Tina Peak Palo Alto Avenue, Palo Alto

Two-way street Editor, Recently I had an issue with the work done by Palo Alto Utilities in front of my house. I left voicemails for both the Assistant Director and Senior Manager for Utilities that went unanswered. I then emailed the Utilities Director and City Manager and received a “boilerplate” response from the Utilities’ communications manager that did nothing to convince me the city would investigate my concerns or address the issue I raised. If the city wants residents to engage to make a program like Our Palo Alto a success, they need to realize that communication is a two-way street. When residents have concerns or complaints, city officials need to be responsive. No one wants to invest time and effort on civic issues if city management can’t be bothered to respond. John Guislin Middlefield Road, Palo Alto

A Palo Alto hero Editor, Tom Wyman. What a loss to our city! Savior of Palo Alto branch libraries, he was a distinguished figure of our culture and history. He literally wrote the book: “Palo Alto and Its Libraries, A LongTime Love Affair.” He champi-

oned just causes with his wife, Ellen, at his side and crusaded on controversial issues dealing with the Oregon Expressway, Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s downtown high-rise proposal and other pro-residential positions. But his most enduring legacy will be preserving with Friends of the Palo Alto Libraries and thousands of library-lovers our unique multibranch library system. Book sales conducted by the Wymans and volunteers have contributed millions of dollars to our libraries. With an irreproachable character and high principles, he battled adversaries, often the city, with quiet dignity and courtly civility. Under his thatch of snowy hair breathed one of Palo Alto’s heroes of recent years. I propose an honorary Tom Wyman plaque be placed at his beloved new Mitchell Park Library (if it is ever opened). Vic Befera High Street, Palo Alto

The facts Editor, In her letter on 3/22, Cherie Zaslawsky decries the “overreach” of our local government in urging us to become greener citi-

zens. Unfortunately she reflects a great many people who ignore the facts in the world today. These facts are the following: - Due to the increasing CO2 emissions of modern man since the dawn of the industrial age, my grandchildren will be saddled with a completely different climatic environment than the one that has existed since the dawn of civilized man 10,000 years ago. - Unless we stop this trend quickly, and by quickly I mean one or two decades, in not many decades our grandchildren are in deep trouble. - Since this is indeed an emergency (from my grandchildren’s perspective) it is incumbent on those in power who know the facts to move us toward a fix. Enlightened officials, even if they do not have the full support of the people, must take action. I wonder what President Truman would have done if his advisors had told him he should get a majority vote of the people before moving forward in building a nuclear weapon to beat Hitler’s attempt to do the same. Steve Eittreim Ivy Lane, Palo Alto

In our school district as well as others, parents of higher-achieving students and school administrators have strongly advocated for differentiated paths that put students into lanes according to their level of proficiency â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the assumption being that this provides them with more of an individualized instruction. But in fact it does the opposite. We are limiting studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; growth and learning experiences as well as putting boundaries on their potential. We know that students rarely move to a different lane regardless of their academic growth and that highest lanes usually get the best teachers (though at PAUSD they are now rotating teachers). What is the impact on our kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; belief in their abilities if they are placed in specific proficiency paths from their earliest teen years? I am sure Carol Dweck, author of several works on new research about the power of motivation, would say that we

have an institutional â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fixed Mindset.â&#x20AC;? We have an incredible opportunity today to provide our students with the best education, but we have to let go of some of our preconceived ideas. We are in the midst of what should be the biggest education shift of the last decades. New academic standards, funding formulas for school districts, brain research about how we learn and educational-technology innovations are all part of the revolution. The need to provide a better education for our youth has also never been greater. Globalization and hyper-connectivity have created a world, as New York Times columnist Tom Friedman often states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where average no longer guarantees access to a middle-class life,â&#x20AC;? with employers having access to mind-power world-wide â&#x20AC;&#x201D; be it for high-level tasks or rote processes. In Silicon Valley, where one out of every five households has to make do with less than $35,000 a year, education is a matter of survival. So the conditions are right from the demand side as well as from the supply side to re-create our educational system and achieve the outcome that public education was intended to provide â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to be the engine of growth and the great equalizer. Sadly, this is exactly where the rubber meets the road and we go back to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lanesâ&#x20AC;? issue. Education is competitive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only so many students receive the fat envelopes at the end of high school and those fat envelopes are still a significant predictor of future earnings. As author Alfie Kohn suggests, this competition creates a frame where parents â&#x20AC;&#x153;not only want their child

We are cheating our students out of a chance to gain key skills by narrowing the set of peers that they interact with. to get ahead, they want their child to get ahead of others.â&#x20AC;? The sorry part is that this frame of mind and its loudest voices seem to be driving the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies, undermining the impact of reform for all children. There is not only the very important social justice lens through which we should think about this; it also makes academic sense for even the students currently at the top that we engage and care about all our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success. Being in an inclusive classroom creates the kind of environment that mimics where our children will have to succeed in their future. We are cheating our students out of a chance to gain key skills by narrowing the set of peers that they interact with. Real life will present them with the need to collaborate, create, develop critical thinking and communicate with a diverse set of individuals. Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we model that in school by providing them these opportunities in the classroom? The best teachers are the ones that are able to engage their highest-performing students to help their lowest-performing students. Students also

learn more deeply as they teach. Lowerperforming students may accelerate their learning from peer support. Countries that are recognized for their quality education, such as Finland, do not have lanes. They believe all students can achieve. Teachers focus on all students mastering the material, and schools support teachers to ensure that success. Everyone does well because of the shared belief that everyone can. I applaud the teachers who are urging that lanes be eliminated at PAUSD and am disappointed that the plan is no longer on the table. Silicon Valley is a world model for so many other things: entrepreneurship, innovation, drive to improve the world. Why is it not a model of 21st century education? We believe, and have repeatedly seen, that anyone with drive and vision can start a technology venture and change society. Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we believe that any 13- or 14year-old can master school lessons? Why do we slot some of them into second-class citizenry before they even have a chance to start? The biggest challenge to our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth is our widening income gap. I am sure that much of this is a result of thinking that for some to succeed others need to fail. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy that and really hope that our school and community leaders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy that either.

hree women who didn’t know each other until a chance connection via Facebook have discovered that they share a common bond: longlasting impacts of having come into contact with a formerly local sexual predator. The shared impacts have affected the lives of each, despite great differences in their connection with the man involved, David Schwenke

Tupou (pronounced “too-BOH”). Tupou, who in the 1990s volunteered in several Palo Alto schools, is now 57 and since 2001 has been serving a 67-year sentence at California Department of Corrections. He is currently at Soledad State Prison, relating to a four-year relationship with one of the women, starting when she was 12. This is the story of how the three women, two as girls, each experienced trauma that lingered for years after meeting Tupou. Finding one another, they say, has given them the assurance they needed to understand what

had happened to them. United in that strength, they have decided to speak out by contacting the Weekly — sharing their experiences and insights in the hope that future incidents of child and earlyteen sexual abuse could be better detected, reported, reduced, and the abusers appropriately separated from society. While their stories are individual and deeply personal, the women view their overlapping experiences as a strong cautionary tale of how individuals in families, in schools and in society failed to act despite indications and even evidence of

something being terribly amiss. One woman, now 30 and married with three young children, was the 12-year-old San Jose resident who became entangled in a relationship with Tupou. She looks back with deeply mixed feelings but with a nuanced understanding of what happened to her and why, which she is sharing on condition of anonymity to protect her family. A second woman, now 27, also anonymous, was not physically abused but recounts that she was explicitly pursued by Tupou in Palo Alto in the early 1990s when she was 6 years old. The pursuit mostly

occurred when visiting some young friends who she says were being abused physically when Tupou was working as their family nanny, but it continued in her school kindergarten class. Based on what the girl — who will be identified as “Beth” in this article — reported to her parents and a friend, Tupou was arrested in October 1994 and charged with felony child abuse. Those charges were later dropped to a misdemeanor (and finally expunged) when the family declined to have

Stanford doctor advises intervention to stem effects of abuse

ost-traumatic stress disorder — universally known as PTSD — is a misnomer, according to a Stanford University physician who heads a trauma-research program at the School of Medicine. “It’s not a disorder,” Victor G. Carrion, director of the Youth Anxiety Disorders Clinic and Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Program, multidisciplinary programs recognized internationally, said of post-traumatic stress reactions, speaking generally and not in relation to a specific case. He said “disorder” is wrong for PTSD because it’s completely normal for everyone who has undergone a traumatic experience to be affected by it. “It’s better referred to as ‘post-traumatic injury,’ or ‘post-traumatic stress symptoms,’” he said. And, he said, it’s vitally important for such injuries to be treated, as the effects can last for years, or lifetimes, if unresolved. Younger persons are especially vulnerable to traumatic situations, whether sexual, physical or emotional, he emphasized. Children can even experience “vicarious trauma,” also known as “secondary traumatization,” when they are not directly the target or recipient of the trauma. “It’s a misconception that children are resilient,” he said in a telephone interview. In terms of sexual abuse of children, “Everyone’s experience of abuse is different,” and it is the details of an experience that actually cause PTSD-type symptoms. Most adults can often react to a traumatic situation using the “fly or fight” response, “but children can’t fly or fight — they’re too little,” he said. Symptoms in children can vary and include screaming, dissociating or extreme withdrawal, or even running away as adaptive responses. But even years later adults without treatment can experience “trigger” events that bring back similar responses, which no longer serve a purpose. Symptoms can change lives and last a lifetime

when not attended to, he said. “Trauma can affect their physical, emotional and even reproductive lives.” There are “interventions that are very effective,” even if a person receives treatment years after the trauma occurred. “Post-traumatic symptoms can come up as a delayed response,” when something happens that can bring back the memory of the trauma. “A child at age 3 may not develop a symptom, but at puberty it can emerge” and can be powerful enough to alter areas of the brain, a “neurotoxic” reaction. “Good, targeted intervention can protect or repair some of these changes,” he said. Yet the best treatment still is prevention, particularly in the case of young children and early teens. Wrong thoughts about the abuse are a significant issue, such as when a young person feels he or she is responsible for the abuse, he said. “The younger you are the more responsible you feel” in many cases. Such “cognitive distortions” need treatment to “help correct those wrong thoughts,” he said. Treatment is essential because the trauma and one’s reaction to it are usually more than a person can handle on their own. “We need to have systems developed to prevent abuse, and to inform children about what to do if something occurs — whom should they talk to? Parents? Teachers?” He praised the roles of national organizations such as the Child Advocacy Center for pediatric mental health and the Center for Youth Wellness. But ultimately the responsibility for protection rests with adults, who need to be watchful and perceptive, and sometimes brave enough to overcome natural avoidance. A person who perceives a situation that seems odd or inappropriate can call the county childprotective services department or the police. (continued on page Ó{)

Her frustrations at achieving only a partial success still rankle. Tupou was barred from some classrooms and one school but not from schools districtwide.

avid Tupou got involved in children’s activities in Palo Alto in the early 1990s. He was a young-looking man in his late 30s, described as having charm in his dealings with adults and children. His 2001 prison-induction papers identify him as 5 feet 10 inches tall, 150 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. Prior to moving to the Palo Alto area, he reportedly resided in San Luis Obispo and earlier in Seattle. Yet in Palo Alto, some children and adults said he had an aura of strangeness about him. Then using Schwenke as his last name, Tupou volunteered in at least five Palo Alto elementary schools over two years prior to his late-1994 arrest: Hoover, Juana Briones, El Carmelo, Addison and Walter Hays. While not a parent, he volunteered mostly in kindergarten classes while he worked as a nanny in a Palo Alto home. He was actually employed by the school district as a part-time language tutor at several schools from March 1991 to June 1992, after he had been cleared by a routine background check for school employees. But there was a shadow even then. Two principals asked him to discontinue his services, once because of parents’ concerns (by Karin Tanaka and her then-husband, Toru) and once for what the principal independently considered “inappropriate behavior.” Police reported that he also had been involved in children’s programs at the Children’s Theatre, Palo Alto Parents and Professionals for Arts (PAPPA) and the Jewish Community Center, as well as volunteering as a youth soccer coach. Tupou’s arrest was not announced by either the school district or the police department. Police Capt. Tom Merson told the Weekly at the time that no announcement was made because the investigating officers didn’t think it would lead to identifying additional victims.

“I made the determination that the molest was more of an opportunity, in a certain atmosphere, which (the suspect) did not have in the (school) jobs,” Detective Luis Verbera, who interviewed the two alleged victims and Tupou before his arrest, told the Weekly. At Hoover, then-Principal Kay van der Berg said, “One parent suggested discomfort, so I asked him not to volunteer.” At El Carmelo, Principal Elayne Goodman told the Weekly that Tupou worked as a paid primary language tutor about three years prior to his arrest, but she had him removed from the school because “I just did not feel that he was behaving suitably. “There was no instance of reporting any physical or verbal abuse of any kind,” she said. But “there are times that a person who works with children doesn’t act appropriately.” Yet it was at Hoover that Beth had some of her worst experiences with Tupou, she recalled in the recent Weekly interview. “I was terrified of him,” Beth recalled of his insistent flirtations and suggestions when she was 6. “He called me his ‘little princess’” and made suggestions that she didn’t fully understand until several years later, she said. She said she would hide in the girls’ bathroom when he was at school, and he would send in other girls to try to get her to come out. She recalled two incidents: “He was always very childlike. I felt that he felt he had a right to be there. “He would play with the boys, the ‘kissy game’ where the boys chase the girls and kiss them. He would be one of the boys.” She once earned a “Golden Ticket” to a slumber party based on how many books students read. “I was the first to get a Golden Ticket, and he came up to me and said, ‘Oh, so you’ll be there. We can put our sleeping bags together.’ I said, ‘It’s just for the kids,’ and he said, ‘Oh no, I’m going to do magic tricks.’ He did do magic tricks, but then he was asked to leave.” In spite of her fear she once confronted him and called him a “gross old man” and told her parents about him. “I’m proud of myself that I said that, and I think that’s what saved me” in terms of her future mental health, she said. The experience led to her work years later at a child-assessment center and in child psychology, she added. Beth also told her best friend, a girl her age, who told her parents. The girl’s father called the police, and Beth said she recently learned that her own father also called the police. The calls resulted in the investigation that led to Tupou’s 1994 arrest. Tanaka said she noticed Tupou when he was a nanny and volunteering in a preschool class at Hoover. He would bring a young male toddler to class but essentially ignore him and focus on little girls, she said. One day during a break, she said, Tupou got “a bunch of little girls, including my daughter, on a tire swing and he starts spinning it really rapidly then he starts reaching in and tickling them. “That’s when I went up to him and said, ‘I want to talk to you.’ And he said, ‘What?’ And I said, ‘These kids are scheduled down to the minute in this classroom. This break time is the only time for them to be playing and doing their thing, and I don’t like the fact that

you are interjecting yourself in their play, and I don’t like the fact that you are playing tickle. You keep your hands off my kid.’” Tanaka spoke to the teacher, who said she would discuss it with the principal but added that she needed volunteers to help run the program. Tanaka agreed to round up parent volunteers as needed for the remaining eight months of the school year. “That night I said to my husband, ‘If they don’t take him out of the classroom, we’re taking her out of the school because this guy is up to no good.’” Word spread rapidly about Tupou’s arrest, once it became known. Some parents expressed concern that they were not notified promptly by school officials or police of the situation. But other parents rallied to his defense, based on information from the mother of the two girls he allegedly molested. Some parents asked the district attorney’s office to drop charges against him and submitted a 30-signature letter on his behalf, objecting to “fabricated and unsubstantiated charges.” In early January 1995 the felony molestation charges were reduced to misdemeanors, with the promise of being dropped altogether if Tupou attended counseling about appropriate behavior around children. Tupou continued to show up at the school and around town, although he later moved to the San Jose area, Tanaka said.

‘I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT A VICTIM I WAS. ... IT’S LIKE WHEN YOU’RE BEING ABUSED BY A LOVER. YOU’RE BEING ABUSED AND YOU DON’T KNOW IT. YOU DON’T KNOW YOU’RE BEING ABUSED UNTIL YOU’RE NOT BEING ABUSED.’ —Tori

“When Tupou’s sentence was commuted to misdemeanors in 1994-95, he was out on the street. He would see me and he would smirk,” she recently told the Weekly. “And he went skateboarding past my house when he was released. I looked out and I saw him ... heading to the school and I was, like, OK, we’re going to go talk to the superintendent.” She and her former husband protested that someone with a felony child-abuse arrest still facing misdemeanor charges at the time should not be allowed at schools. But they were told the district was “not going to try to convict a man who hasn’t had his day in court,” Tanaka recalled. So they notified the Palo Alto Weekly, which reported on the situation. Tanaka said she felt the backlash of speaking out: “For the rest of that kindergarten year I was constantly accosted by parents who thought he was wonderful, saying things to me at soccer games, such as, ‘I don’t know what your problem is with Tupou. He’s so wonderful.’” Beth said she felt wounded years later when she discovered the letters and comments in the articles, includ-


Cover Story ing a quotation from the unnamed mother of the two girls saying Beth was lying about Tupou. “Without even touching me he got through to me,” Beth recalled. “But I probably felt most victimized, if that’s the word, when the community got to me by posting those letters, and not letting the trial happen — (saying) ‘We’re going to believe him.’ “I’m terrified by what he said — especially as I got older and understood exactly what he was saying.” The message was that young victims of abuse will not be believed and will get in trouble if they tell anyone about what is happening to them — a core message conveyed by chronic abusers, the women agree. Beth described her parents as terrific and protective but added that they perhaps protected her too much, to an extent that potentially other young victims of abuse were ignored and the public was not given the full story. She said she was willing to testify as to what she witnessed, including clothes-on touching of her friends by Tupou. But the girls’ family decided to move out of state, and prosecutors decided not to pursue the drastically weakened case. Beth said she has decided to speak now to “bring some closure” to her feelings about what happened in that long-ago time when she was being groomed and pursued by a much older man and disbelieved in the community. Tori (not her real name), the then-teenager whose testimony led to Tupou’s conviction, also felt wounded and angered when she learned of community members’ defense of Tupou. At one point she sent letters or Facebook messages to every person named in the Weekly articles or who signed letters to the editor, including Tanaka, who didn’t initially respond. Beth also turned to Facebook and contacted Tanaka months later. At that point, Tanaka recalled the earlier message from Tori. “So really Facebook was the medium that connected the three of us. It was (Tori) first, then (Beth), and me connecting the dots, and it was, ‘Oh my gosh!’” Tanaka recalled. The Weekly’s reporting on Tupou goes silent after the 1994 charges were dropped. None of the women have any information about his activities for the time between the dropping of the original charges relating to the young girls and when he took up with Tori, or even to some extent while he was with her. Tori believes she was not his only victim; there are potentially many more who are unknown. (She notes there is no time limit on reporting such activities, and many reports do not happen until a person is an adult.) Tori now looks back at her 12year-old self with both a critical and empathetic eye. She was a bright, inquisitive, somewhat rebellious youngster living with her mother in an apartment complex, where coincidentally Tupou resided. “My parents were divorced and had been divorced for awhile. My

dad had another family. My mom worked a lot. “She was a great mom when she was a mom; when she paid attention to me she was a great mom,” Tori recalled, despite lingering “bad blood” between them relating to Tupou. But her mother was living a new social life of her own at the time, circa 1997-98, as well as working as apartment manager for the complex. Her mother did warn her about Tupou. “My mom came up to me and said, “Stay away from that man who did the apartment check.’ I was very curious. ... I would hear from other kids that he was weird, with rumors going around. “He was a limo driver when I met him. That’s how we were found because we were parked wrong,” Tori recalled. But early on it was seduction. “I don’t remember how it happened. He would see me around and say things to me. I just didn’t understand what the big deal about him was. ... Like I was too smart for my own good, and I just didn’t get it. I wanted to understand why people thought he was weird.” Thus started a multi-year relationship that began as heavy petting and moved to fully sexual, she recalled, nearly all of it in the back of a limo or, at the last, a town car. As the relationship progressed, Tori’s mother found them together and attempted to intervene: “She called him and asked him to stop seeing me.” But that was more than ineffectual, Tori recalled: “When you call a predator and say, ‘Can you please keep your hands off my daughter?’ that’s a green light to ‘Hey, do whatever you want because I’m really not going to call the cops.’” Then her father died. “When I was 13 my father died, and I watched him die. And I think Tupou took advantage of that, because things like sodomy were then introduced. ... I saw him the day after my dad died. That’s when drugs pretty much started.” They spent days together: “He would pick me up almost every day from school. So in freshman and sophomore year I spent collectively a month in school. “So I don’t know how I graduated high school. I’m lucky that I’m smart and knew how to get by.” There was a kind of normalcy to it all, she recalled, and Tupou told her she was his true love. “I didn’t know what a victim I was. ... It’s like when you’re being abused by a lover. You’re being abused and you don’t know it. You don’t know you’re being abused until you’re not being abused.” Then in 2001 came the fateful day of discovery, the beginning of an unraveling for Tupou and a recovery and coming together for Tori. They had parked a brand-new town car at a loading dock behind a BevMo! store on Stevens Creek Boulevard in Santa Clara. “We’re making out. We’re pretty bold at this point. We’d almost been

Lt. Zach Perron of the Palo Alto Police Department stands amid evidence collected in sex-crime cases on Wednesday. He encourages people to call the police if they witness suspicious or strange behavior, especially toward children.

In possible abuse cases, ‘Trust the hairs on the back of your neck’ Reporting suspicions is first step in carefully regulated investigation, police say

W

hen something seems odd about a situation involving young children and possible sexual or other abuse, “The best thing anybody could do is trust the hairs on the back of their neck,” Palo Alto police Lieutenant Zachary Perron recommends. Perron, who spent from 2003 to 2008 as the lead investigator of sex crimes involving minors and who currently oversees that area among others in the detective division, said that a person of any age can report situations or actions that seem odd or inappropriate. “They need to trust that instinct and pick up the phone or tell an adult and bring it to someone’s attention,” he said. “The same thing goes for reporting suspicious activities in our neighborhoods: Trust that initial instinct. Give the police a call and let us have a chance to come out and investigate.” People need not be afraid of a law-enforcement rush-to-judgment against someone, as today’s investigative procedures relating to sex-related crimes involving minors are precisely defined and investigators are given special training, he emphasized. “From personal experience, these are among the most detailoriented and complex investigations a department can undertake. They are only done by detectives with special training and are not investigations that occur quickly or in a hasty manner. Sometimes it takes several months for an investigation to be finished, not the least of which

is doing a proper interview of a child.” Young children can be “very easily led and are suggestible. Interviews need to be done in a very special and open-ended, non-leading way. An entire investigation can be jeopardized by an investigator using even a single wrong word.” Structured interview procedures have been developed for the “unique crime” of sexual abuse of children in conjunction with the district attorney’s office, and training is ongoing each year for officers assigned to such cases, he said. Investigations are often coordinated with the Child Protective Services agency of the county. “Just because somebody calls the police doesn’t equate to somebody being investigated for a sex crime. It simply means that officer who’s trained to investigate suspicious behavior is going to come out and investigate suspicious behavior. That’s all it means,” Perron said. And some reports of possible abuse are legally required: “School administrators, just like cops, are mandated reporters of child abuse — not just sexual but emotional or physical,” he said. Part of the investigation is attempting to get to know the alleged perpetrator. “There’s a big difference between someone who may be a ‘child molester’ and somebody whom we in law enforcement would call a ‘child predator.’” Perron said they both may have been convicted of an identi-

cal crime — sexual contact with a child under 14 — but the difference between them is that a molester is someone whose primary sexual interest is adults. “A child predator is a completely different person. That is going to be someone whose primary sexual interest is in children. ... That’s a very important difference,” he said. The vast majority of registered sexual offenders in California fall under the molester category and are not child sexual predators, he added. “The challenge for law enforcement and the court system is unless a suspect is going to come forward and confess their deepest, innermost sexual fantasies to you voluntarily, there’s no way really to get inside somebody’s head to determine which category they fall into.” In one sense it doesn’t matter which category fits, as both have committed a sex crime against a child, for which if convicted they should go to prison, he said. “It helps from an investigation standpoint to know what’s going on in that person’s head as best you can,” Perron said. That is a matter of training and approach, and “not passing judgment on what the act was” during interviews, he said. Yet prevention and early detection are vitally important in a community. “I think it’s incumbent on all adults to be mindful and protective, because children have a special place in all of our hearts,” Perron said.

‘I AM THANKFUL THAT THE GOODNESS OF OUR BOND TOGETHER COULD CREATE THIS CLOSURE, UNTAINTED BY ANY DARKNESS OF THE PAST.’ —Beth

“So we’re in the back of the town car. ... An unmarked car, a detective’s car, pulls up. The cop gets out and knocks on the window. He says, ‘You are illegally parked and have to move.’ I have a woman’s body, and I’m straddling him, and trying not to look and all of a sudden something in me does this (turns her head toward the officer). “The cop sees my face and he says, ‘Get out of the car, now!’ “He puts him immediately in the back of the cop car and pops the (town car’s) trunk and searches the back of the car. At this point there is a felony going on, and the car is no longer Tupou’s car. There was big binder in the back of the car and

he’s going through it, a CD case kind of thing, and there are naked Polaroid pictures of me and him. “This was why he was arrested. They sent me to Valley Med. I had a rape kit done and they found semen.” She said Tupou earlier had coached her about what to say if they were caught: That she should say she couldn’t live without him. She did as told and wound up in a “51-50” psychiatric hold for a 72hour observation. As the case proceeded, “He wasn’t going to plead no contest, so the DA and his public defender and the judge all go for a meeting. And the DA pulled out this plastic, floppy dildo ... double-sided, and she says, ‘Do you really want me to bring this stuff out in trial? And the testimony of that girl, right there, that you just talked to, and you want me to bring this out?’” She said she had numerous UHaul boxes of similar evidence. Police found in Tupou’s home numerous Barbie dolls, some in bondage, or in sexual positions, or headless, Tori recalled. Tupou pleaded no contest to multiple felony charges, and his 67-year sentence followed. Yet even after his arrest and imprisonment, Tori alleged that they exchanged letters, hundreds of them, which she has now burned. Until at last “I sent him a letter telling him I was married and had two kids and was pregnant having another and if a man like him was

T

here are multiple lessons to be learned from the stories of the three women. “It’s a call to action,” Tanaka said of Beth’s story of being pursued and traumatized in kindergarten. “You really have to know who your kids are and pay attention. For the most part they don’t have a frame of reference to describe what’s happening to them. And when a kid will describe as you did, that should be paid attention to — to the utmost.” She said both school officials and parents should be more attuned to behavior that seems odd or inappropriate and not be afraid to express their concerns to those responsible for creating a safe environment for children. (See sidebar on page 23.) “Tupou didn’t destroy my childhood and I’ve had a good life, and I’m in a good place,” Beth said. “But it dates my childhood in the way I reacted to situations, and it has continued to affect me as an adult in the way things would come up and I would flash back to that. “He didn’t do anything (physically) but he certainly shaped it,” she said of her childhood and some of her adult years. In addition to witnessing the clothed touching and the stories of her young friends, there was a constant threat: “It was hard to deal with the threat. He would constantly threaten, ‘I can do what I want.’” “I’m speaking up because of that ... mom (of the two Palo Alto girls),” Tori summed up. “I’m speaking up not only as a victim but as a mom: ‘You probably knew he was having sexual relations with your kids and you hid it.’ “And because you did that more children got hurt, and he went down the Peninsula and met me later. What about the kids in the middle? What about the fact that he became a limo driver and loved picking kids up? Do you know how many parties he was a limo driver for? How many little kids he had in the back of the limo? “And I’m so grateful that I turned my head and looked at that police officer. If I hadn’t none of this would have been happening, and he’d still be out there.” Connecting with each other has had a special meaning to all three women. Each cited a “closure” it has brought to them, but it almost didn’t happen. Tori had emailed Tanaka initially on Nov. 12, 2012, with five words: “Do you know David Tupou?” But Tanaka, stung by earlier crank emails about Tupou, didn’t respond because of the lack of context. Then last August, Beth — trying to sort out her own confusion and not knowing if Tupou was in custody somewhere — contacted Tanaka. Beth expressed gratitude for the connection: “I am grateful that

sharing the truth the three of us were forced to know ended the loneliness caused by people who refused to know,” she said. “I am thankful that the goodness of our bond together could create this closure, untainted by any darkness of the past.” “We are survivors,” she said. Tori said her confusion about the relationship with Tupou lingered until she connected with Tanaka and Beth last fall. “Tupou and I had a somewhat ‘normal’ relationship. We would

‘THE COMMUNITY DROPPED THE BALL; A LOT OF PEOPLE’S LIVES WERE BROKEN BECAUSE OF THIS MAN. ... I AM PICKING UP THESE PIECES AND HOPEFULLY HELPING A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH THEIR OWN CLOSURE AS WELL.’ —Tori go to the movies, grocery shop, go to concerts. We went to a Sharks game. He would cook for me, buy me books, do things for me, pick me up, drive me around, take me to and from school. “And the fact that he could be so intimate with a 12-year-old girl is all the more disturbing. “I think that is why up till this past year I was utterly confused about him: Do I hate him? Do I love him? Do I mourn him as a loss? Am I happy he is gone? What do I do about this hole in my life, this aspect of my life that was shattered when he was arrested? What do I do with this now? How do I process this?” “The fact that he molded my childhood and my teenage years is a hard thing for me to swallow now as an adult. “Talking with them has given me a great sense of closure, to finally have a sense of who he was: a predator. ... Thanks to them I can completely close the door and move forth, focus on my family and my life, today and tomorrow. “It is no longer about my past. No more questions haunting me, no more why’s or what’s? ‘Did this really happen to me — how could this happen to me?’ “The community dropped the ball; a lot of people’s lives were broken because of this man. ... I am picking up these pieces and hopefully helping a lot of people with their own closure as well.” Tanaka said the connection with Tori and Beth was reassuring to her that her instincts were on the mark all those years ago and that perhaps sharing them might encourage others today and in the future to speak up about situations they feel are inappropriate or strange.

“Connecting with Beth and Tori and hearing their stories has been a profound experience. On the one hand, it’s been a powerful validation of my instincts about Tupou and the course of action I chose in encountering him 20 years ago. “However, it’s also been tremendously depressing to realize how profound and far-reaching an impact he had on these young women’s lives — and perhaps on countless others. And it’s been depressing and enraging to know that the adults of our community so totally and completely failed our children, choosing to protect the offender and persecute those of us willing to speak out about what we were observing and experiencing, rather than seeking to understand. “The best part of connecting, for me, has been having the privilege of meeting these young women and seeing how they are building good lives, despite lingering issues around trust and self-doubt. It has been a privilege to connect with these fighters who were willing to speak out about their experiences and ultimately put Tupou behind bars so he could not victimize others. “I deeply regret that there is no way to turn back time and fight harder in order to prevent Tupou from having victimized more children between his original felony arrest in Palo Alto and his final arrest ... six years later. Although she put him behind bars, Tori paid a heavy, heavy price — and that knowledge will always be with me.” Editor’s note: The Weekly contacted David Tupou for comment but did not receive a reply.

“Streaming,” a permanent art installation on San Francisquito Creek, near the Bay Trail on the north side of Highway 101, is just one of the 336 works of public art in the City of Palo Alto’s collection.

A tool for discovery Palo Alto arts commission launches digital database of public art by Nick Veronin

O

n a recent evening, a man and a woman stood waiting for a southbound train at the California Avenue Caltrain station. The man drew the woman’s attention to a sculpture — visible across the tracks, on the opposite side of Alma Street, in Bowden Park — and wondered aloud about the story behind it. The pair bantered back and forth for a time about the statue — a car, supported by two thick human legs, frozen in mid-sprint. After less than a minute of rumination, they moved on to the next topic of conversation, perhaps to never again contemplate the piece. Elise DeMarzo, manager of the city’s Public Art program, assumes conversations like these are common in Palo Alto. “I think people really don’t know where to go” (to find out what something is), DeMarzo says. While many may reflect on the murals and sculptures they encounter while going about their day, she figures that many don’t engage in the art much beyond a passing glance. That may soon change, however, now that the Public Arts Commission has mostly completed and launched a searchable online database of Palo Alto’s public art. The page, which went live at the

beginning of the year, contains images and brief descriptions of the majority of the city’s art. It even has information on that car with legs. The sculpture is called “Rrrun.” It was created by a Los Altos artist, named Marta Thoma. A quick search of the database reveals that Thoma is also responsible for “Go Mama” — the large bronze sculpture of a figure with a child’s face for a torso and cartoonish, painted-on eyes, which stands at the corner of California Avenue and Ash Street. Larisa Usich, a six-year veteran of the commission, said she was the one to initially propose the database. “I brought this idea to the city when I joined the commission, and it has been quite a process to get it here,” she said. When Usich began her tenure on the commission, she found that the city didn’t have anything approaching a modern database to track its art collection — even for its own record-keeping purposes. Some of the information about the collection was on paper, in manila folders, and she recalls a list of all the works on an Excel spreadsheet, “but that was about it.” Upgrading the system wasn’t simply a matter of converting Excel files and old paper files into a

single digital database. According to Chris Caravalho, the city’s IT project manager, building the database was a “large undertaking” from a technical standpoint. The city’s web vendor had to create a custom portal, which functioned differently than the rest of the city website and turned the art commission’s internal database into something that would be intuitive to the searching public. On top of the technical aspects, there was the huge logistical task of gathering images of the art and getting permission from the artists to display it on the site. Many of the works of art in the city — particularly many of the sculptures — had to be rephotographed. Many had been photographed for internal documentation purposes, but the quality of the photos was low and unsuitable for such a public database. Palo Alto resident and photographer Michael Kern helped coordinate this process. In 2011, he and a group of his fellow Palo Alto Camera Club members joined forces with the art commission — going out into the field to capture photos of 69 outdoor works of art in the city. Kern recalls the project fondly, describing it as a “scavenger hunt” of sorts and noting that the city

has many works of public art that most people either don’t know about or simply don’t notice. “I live in Palo Alto and I drive by these pieces all the time, but I never really paid attention to them until this project,” Kern says. The photographer says he came to appreciate how certain works of art really become a part of the landscape — changing with the light, the time of day, the weather, and the way in which people and the environment interact with the works. One of his favorite — “Streaming” — was created by Ceevah Sobel. It consists of several waveshaped strips of aluminum installed above a storm-drain pump on San Francisquito Creek, near an entrance to the Bay Trail on the north side of Highway 101. “I never even knew it existed,” Kern says of the piece, explaining that, for him, documenting the public art was a process of “discovery.” Kathleen Kavanaugh, chair of the art commission, says she hopes the database will function as a “catalyst” to help others discover local art and engage with it on a deeper level. Giving an example of how she envisions the database in action, she recalled driving on Middle-

field Road recently. As she passed the Lucie Stern Center, she noticed a sculpture she had seen but didn’t know much about. “I thought to myself, ‘Gosh. I don’t actually know who that is,’ so, I went to our database. Anybody could do that,” Kavanaugh says, adding that she is eager to “help people learn and help people get excited.” When Usich took her seat on the commission, she made it a priority to create an electronic database — first for the purposes of better record keeping, but with an eye toward more technologically savvy ends. “Capturing the information in a database is just the first step,” Usich says. She hopes one day that the city might develop an application, which draws on the database and allows people to take smartphone- or tablet-driven art walks — or simply pull up information about a given piece on the fly, by scanning a QR code on a sculpture or mural. The more accessible the city’s art collection is, the better, in her opinion. After all, Usich says, while the city is the steward of these works, everything in the collection belongs to the people of Palo Alto. “The art is for the public,” she says. “it’s for their benefit.” N

Five works of Palo Alto public art

P

alo Alto has 336 pieces of permanently sited and portable works of art in its collection, according to Elise DeMarzo, manager of public art with the city. Some are better known than others. Below is a list of five public art works and the stories behind them.

OLDEST: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nude in Steelâ&#x20AC;? by Hans Wehrli Palo Alto Main Library, 1213 Newell Road This statue was the first piece of art purchased by the Public Art Commission. It was acquired in 1976 in commemoration of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicentennial celebration. It is currently hidden from view â&#x20AC;&#x201D; inside a large box to protect it from the surrounding construction going on at the library. According to DeMarzo, one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s librarians told her that the sculpture has a secret admirer, who places a flower behind the statueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ear every few days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think somebody loves her,â&#x20AC;? the librarian says.

This trio of boxy metal bears is not technically the newest piece of art in the city, but some of the more recent acquisitions, from artists including Nathan Oliveira, Bruce Beasley, Roger Stoller, Brad Oldham and Mark Verlander, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t visible because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve yet to be placed or are hidden by construction at Mitchell Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wildâ&#x20AC;? was truly a community effort, DeMarzo says. Over the course of a few years, the art commission visited with the Midtown Residents Association and asked what the community wanted before putting out a national call. Beth Nybeck won the commission and the locals seem happy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m out there, I see kids climbing on the bears,â&#x20AC;? DeMarzo says.

Located on the San Francisco Bay Trail and visible from Highway 101, this abstract rendering of a cyclist gazing off into the distance of the baylands is meant to memorialize Bill Bliss, the influential San Jose cycling activist, who worked hard to advance causes, such as the Bay Trail and bicycle-safety infrastructure all over the state. According to DeMarzo, the odometer on the front of the bicycle portion of the sculpture has the number of miles Bliss traveled on the Odyssey 2000 cycling tour around the world â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 20,126.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Love, Loss and Latkesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; explored through song The San Francisco Choral Artists are teaming up with Veretski Pass â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a trio of East Bay musicians who play klezmer music (a traditional Eastern European/ Jewish style) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;eclectic smorgasbord of (mostly) Jewish music,â&#x20AC;? this Sunday at the All Saints Episcopal Church. The program, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love, Loss and Latkesâ&#x20AC;? will feature

Jewish and Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) music, both old and new. The revue, assembled by Magen Solomon, artistic director of the San Francisco Choral Artists, will explore the themes of love and loss through a series of Jewish compositions, including an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unknown gem from the Spanish Renaissance,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somewhereâ&#x20AC;? by Leonard Bernstein (from the musical, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Westside Storyâ&#x20AC;?), and brand new compositions from Benjamin Taylor, Kala Pierson and Wayne Eastwood, among others.

Palo Alto Camera Club exhibition A collection of photographs by some of Palo Altos best photographers will be on display through the summer at Los Altos Hills Town Hall.

The humble pencil. Many will remember it well, if not fondly, as that instrument used for filling in bubbles on multiple choice exams and working out math problems on scratch paper. In the art world, however, the pencil enjoys much greater prestige. On Wednesday, at the Palo Alto Art Center, Betsy G. Fryberger, curator emerita of prints and drawings at the Cantor Art Center gives a presentation on the role graphite has played in the art world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Ingres and CĂ&#x2C6;zanne to Hockney and Sol Lewitt: Artists Working in Graphiteâ&#x20AC;? will examine the many uses artists found for the pencil, including as a tool for crafting quick studies in their sketchbooks, creating definition in water colors, to make preliminary outlines before breaking out the brushes, and even as an end unto itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can get a very clear representa-

tion using graphite,â&#x20AC;? Fryberger says, explaining the benefits of working with pencils. Fryberger will give a talk accompanied by slides and a few facsimiles of the sketchbooks by Paul Cezanne and Theodore Gericault on April 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Palo Alto Art Center, located at 1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto. The event is free. For more information, call 650-329-2366.

Though this ceramic plate is far from Picassoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-known work, it is a Picasso nonetheless. A gift to the city by Don Goldeen. It was originally displayed in the city during a 1981 exhibition at the Palo Alto Art Center, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Picasso Ceramics: Limited Editions from California Collections.â&#x20AC;? The plate was produced in France, sometime around 1947, when Picasso began working in the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris, Southern France, according to information obtained from the arts center exhibit. During that time, he created molds and designs, which the master potters at the pottery then used to create limited editions. N â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nick Veronin

Founded in 1935, the Palo Alto Camera Club (PACC) consists of a group of over 100 serious amateur and some professional photographers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very talented group,â&#x20AC;? according to Bill Jackson, coordinator of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Capturing Light.â&#x20AC;? Prints from the show will be for sale, as well as a catalog ($20) of the entire exhibition. The show opened on March 10, but a reception is planned for March 30 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free, and there will be food, wine, soft drinks and live music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Capturing Lightâ&#x20AC;? will run through Aug. 28. at the Los Altos Hills Town Hall, located at 26379 Fremont Road in Los Altos Hills.

Eating Out Bubble tea bonanza Mountain View has plenty of places for those craving sweet tea with tapioca pearls by Katie Straub

T

Most popular: Tea Era Tea Room and Cafe

Tea Era is centrally located downtown. The ambiance has a distinctly “hole-in-the-wall” feel, and with little space for seating inside, it can feel cramped. Yet Tea Era frequently has lines that trail out the door, especially after dinnertime. The selection of milk teas is notably wide, featuring some unique flavors. Their roasted barley boba has a nutty flavor and is one of Tea Era’s most popular menu options. The ratio of powder to liquid can vary. The boba is usually on the sweeter side and tastes notably creamy, and the pearls are delightfully chewy. Service at Tea Era is practical, and employees seem more focused on customer turnover than on prioritizing friendliness. But the price is right at Tea Era, with a typical pearl milk tea costing under $3. Address: 271 Castro St. Phone: 650-969-2899 Hours: Sun.-Mon., 11:30 a.m.11 p.m.; closed Tues.; Wed.Thurs., 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Fri.,-

his Taiwanese drink is a local obsession in Mountain View. Stroll through downtown and plastic cups of bubble tea are spotted in the hands of passersby as frequently as cups of coffee. Bubble tea, also called “pearl milk tea,” “tapioca tea,” or “boba” is a tea-based drink mixed with sweetened dairy powder and the all-important scoop of starchbased tapioca pearls at the bottom. The delectable dairy drink is usually served iced. Because Mountain View is home to quite a few bubble tea cafes, we decided to pull out our straws and have a taste of the local scene. We sampled the drinks at five popular bubble tea destinations on Castro Street and beyond, and gave them informal ratings based on recent visits.

Julia Wang, a server at Pearl Cafe in Mountain View, brings out milk tea with tapioca pearls for customers. Sat., 11:30 a.m.-12 a.m.

Most convenient: Tapioca Express As part of a larger chain, Tapioca Express has more of a commercial feel than some of its local competitors. There’s a fast-food vibe that can be sensed when

placing an order — the milk tea is relatively cheap and the drinkery offers a wide array of entrees besides bubble tea. Most of the tea flavors are premixed, with fresh pearls added. The tea is delicious and smooth in texture, without being too sweet. The flavor is natural and sometimes car-

ries an appealing earthy quality. The space is large and allows for an entire room of seating. The aging decor is is heavily inspired by Asian pop culture, complete with impressively tall stacks of comic books for customers to read. (continued on next page)

MING’S NOT CLOSING YET ... Palo Alto’s oldest and largest Chinese restaurant, the venerable Ming’s Restaurant, at 1700 Embarcadero Road, was supposed to serve its final meal on March 15, but now, nearly two weeks later, the restaurant is still open and its closing date is somewhat uncertain. “We thought a particular group was coming through with financing for our project, but that fell through. We’re currently looking at a new offer, and it looks like we may now close in June,” Ming’s owner Vicky Ching, said. But the overall plan, which was announced by Ming’s last year and called for the demolition of the 10,000-square-foot restaurant, remains intact for an extended-stay hotel, according to Ching. Staybridge Suites, a part of the InterContinental Hotel Group, is still on board to build a four-story, 174-room hotel. A substantially smaller Chinese restaurant — with seating for about 150 diners, compared to the current 500 seats — will also be built and will become the new Ming’s. Ching is optimistic that the new financing plan and the subsequent demolition of Ming’s will take place this summer. In anticipation of that, Ching is planning to hold an auction in her restaurant to sell the furniture and memorabilia that she has acquired, including the restaurant’s centerpiece — a 45-foot, wraparound wooden

bar that greets customers as they enter the front lobby. “It’s a vintage, one-of-a-kind piece that was imported from Hong Kong,” Ching said. The orange tiles from the roof of Ming’s, which were imported from Japan in 1988, are already spoken for, according to Ching, who has agreed to donate them to a Buddhist temple in Ukiah. “But almost everything else will be for sale,” she said. The auction is tentatively scheduled for early June. “Following the teardown, we’re estimating it will take two years to build the new hotel,” Ching said. In the meantime, she wants to honor her customers by offering special events each month until the restaurant closes. “In a way, I’m happy our final closing has been delayed. It will give me more time to organize these events,” she said, which includes an old-fashioned Tea Dance. “We’ll have live entertainment and an extensive buffet. We’ll bring out the dance floor and the band will play music from the ‘50s and ‘60s because that’s the era when Ming’s first started. We wanted to revive this old tradition. It will be a genteel, nostalgic kind of event,” she said. Also on tap is a Chinese Tea Ceremony, complete with a professional tea master, who will perform the elaborate ritual of preparation and presentation of a variety of exotic teas to sample. Another event Ching is planning

is a “Dim Sum and Jazz” brunch with a live band. “I’m doing all this because I want to thank my customers and give them a memorable final farewell,” she said. CAL AVE THRIFT SHOP TO CLOSE ... It’s the end of an era for the Bargain Box, the small resale shop at 341 S. California Ave., which is an arm of the Children’s Health Council. The store, which was run by volunteers and donated all of its proceeds to CHC, will close in late August. The building it occupies was recently sold and is expected to undergo a complete renovation. “We’re going to miss it. It’s been a part of our history,” said CHC marketing manager Micaelia Randolph. Although Randolph would not reveal what percentage of CHC’s funding comes from the Bargain Box, she said: “We should be okay. The agency (CHC) is doing well. We’ll be able to make up the difference with other internal events and activities.” But she acknowledged the sentimental value of the shop. “We’ve had amazing support throughout the years from our volunteers who run the store,” she said.

Most friendly: Ocha Tea Cafe Ocha is just as much a destination for bubble tea as it is for an entire meal. The cafe has ample seating for large groups, inviting decor with lots of large windows and a full menu. And, with a staff that is lively and smiling behind the counter, customers feel welcome to converse and stay for a while. The flavored boba itself, however, can leave customers with a sugar headache. The portion size for a regular cup is giant, and the powder used can be overpoweringly sweet, reminiscent of melted ice cream. However, the freshness and chewy texture of the tapioca pearls were a saving grace. Finally, bubble tea prices at Ocha were a little more expensive compared to most other vendors in the area. Address: 1350 Grant Road, Suite 8 Phone: 650-961-1813 Hours: Sun.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11 a.m.-12 a.m.

Most surprising: Pearl Cafe Located in a somewhat hidden location in a parking lot in the Showers Drive mall, Pearl Cafe does not immediately appear to be a bubble tea joint. It is a charming cafe that primarily offers Hawaiian comfort food and American cuisine for lunch and dinner, but a significant portion of

their menu is devoted to bubble tea and other specialty drinks. Their bubble tea is creamy and surprisingly delicious. The tapioca pearls can be a bit gummy, though, which may turn-off some bubble tea connoisseurs. The space is naturally lit through large windows and decorated with cute Hawaiian knickknacks. The staff is warm and accommodating, and the cafe also offers wireless Internet access. Address: 506A Showers Drive Phone: 650-917-8988 Hours: Mon.-Sat., 8 a.m-9 p.m.; Sun., 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

Best overall: Verde Tea Cafe Verde Tea Cafe is tucked away just off of Castro Street and strikes just the right chord for any bubble tea expedition. With its quiet location, comfortable seating, and a more sophisticated atmosphere, Verde Tea is inviting for a formal lunchtime business crowd during the weekdays, but also casual enough to attract a nighttime gaggle of kids. The bubble tea is both refreshing and luxurious — it is not overwhelmed by huge amounts of dairy, sugar or tapioca starch but maintains a delicate sweetness. Also offered on the menu are snacks like pot stickers, crispy chicken and rice dishes. Service is quick, with a staff that is cordial and attentive. Customers do pay for these elements, though, making the bubble tea a bit on the expensive side, at $3.30 for taro milk tea with pearls. Address: 852 Villa St., Mountain View Phone: 650-210-9986 Hours: Sun.-Thurs., 11:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11:30 a.m.-12:30 a.m. Email Katie Straub at kstraub@mv-voice.com.

Do you want the best in home care for your family? Call Home Care Assistance.

“Named national winner of the ‘Best of Home Care Award’ by Home Care Pulse.” It starts with our caregivers. We carefully screen nearly 25 applicants for each caregiver we hire. Only the best are good enough for Home Care Assistance! We follow this with extensive training. Finally we invite geriatric experts to meet with our caregivers so that they are up-to-date with the newest ideas about senior care. Hourly and Live-In Care. Our caregiving services focus on two basic types of care: hourly and live-in. The service you choose is determined by your particular needs.



Hourly caregiving works well for many families. In this situation we provide trained caregivers on an hourly basis. Here the caregiver focuses all her attention exclusively on the senior.

Live-in care differs from hourly care in that we provide personal aides on a daily basis. Live-in caregivers are often the best choice for those seniors who need the companionship of another person, but who do not have intense “all the time” personal needs. At Home Care Assistance we mean it when we talk about providing the best in senior care–whether it is on an hourly basis or a live-in basis.

Bad Words --1/2

Lunch and Dinner

(Palo Alto Square) There’s an old showbiz adage that directing is 90 percent casting, and that’s also true of casting the directors themselves. Take “Bad Words,” the directing debut of actor Jason Bateman. With this same script, cast Adam Sandler in the lead instead of Bateman, hand the reins to actor-director Dennis Dugan (responsible for eight Sandler movies), and you would get a steaming pile of feces, guaranteed. And yet, in the hands of Bateman, “Bad Words” becomes a diverting enough outing, one that’s disposable but enjoyable. Ironically, Andrew Dodge’s script was a fairly hot item, having appeared on the 2011 Black List of best unproduced screenplays. It’s not hard to figure why. “Bad Words” fits a certain indie comedy formula that’s likely to turn a profit, pitting cynicism against a cute kid on the way to a victory for sentiment. Call it “Bad Santa” meets “Little Miss Sunshine.” Bateman plays 40-year-old Guy

Trilby, who sets aside his job of proofreading product warranties to pursue a mission of Ahab-level obsessiveness. For reasons known only to him, Guy takes advantage of a loophole to compete in spelling bees, taking it all the way to the annual, national “Golden Quill.” As he shamelessly competes against eighth-graders, Guy fends off queries from all corners, including those of his journalistic sponsor Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn) of the blog “The Click and Scroll.” Guy has natural enemies in parents, the bee’s administrator Dr. Bernice Deagan (Allison Janney) and the sourpuss President of the Quill, Dr. Bowman (Philip Baker Hall). But in his bitterness (and with his eyes on the prize), Guy also picks fights with his bemused young competitors, shamelessly intimidating them out of his way and batting away any inkling of friendly sportsmanship. That kind of behavior cannot deter sunny 10year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), an adorable nerd — clutching a beloved study binder he’s named Todd — who breaks down Guy’s defenses to forge an inappropriate friendship. This sets the stage for plenty of “Bad” antics, partly played out in a rap-scored montage of drinking, shoplifting and vandalism (precursor to a junior sexual initiation of getting flashed by a full-figured prostitute). The predictability of these shock tactics, as well as Guy’s race-baiting (the nickname “Slumdog” and a reference to the kid’s “curry hole”), makes much of “Bad Words” more or less impressively nasty more so than it is funny. Worse, “Bad Words” doesn’t seem to know what to do with itself once it gets where it’s going, leading to a resolution that’s limp at best. And yet, it’s hard to throw on the trash heap. Because Jason Bateman. The star, riding a career resurgence that began with “Arrested Development,” has honed a comic sensibility defined by subtlety and sharp comic timing. As Guy, he wears a haughty expression and a lifted chin to cultivate an imperious, “back off” air, and as an actordirector, Bateman knows how to get and select the best performance moments from national treasures like Hahn and Janney as well as child-actor Chand.

If you can get with vile behavior as being all in good fun, there’s just enough dark comedy in “Bad Words” to spell a good time at the movies. Rated R for crude and sexual content, language and brief nudity. One hour, 29 minutes. — Peter Canavese

The Lunchbox --(Palo Alto Square) The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so they say. And so says writerdirector Ritesh Batra in his debut feature “The Lunchbox.” Though considerably more understated than a Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan movie, one might call this wry-attimes romantic drama “You’ve Got Lunch.” That’s because the story hinges, so to speak, on Mumbai’s remarkable “lunchbox service,” which accidentally becomes a vehicle for letters passed between a dissatisfied housewife and a quietdesperation widower. Fretful lla (Nimrat Kaur) has a young child and a preoccupied, neglectful husband (Nakul Vaid), for whom she cooks a special lunch. But in a rare glitch of the system, the lunchpail winds up in the hands of the usually restaurant-fed Saajan Fernandes (Irrfan Khan), a 35-year veteran government office worker whose early retirement will kick in by the end of the month. Though he’s told his “golden years are about to start,” Saajan doesn’t seem convinced. He drags his feet in training his eager-beaver replacement Aslam Shaikh (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), and now that the lonely, companionless Saajan is pulling a daily home-cooked meal from a thoughtful young woman, he begins to dread his last day all the more. Meanwhile, Ila appreciates being appreciated, quickly developing a curiosity about her witty new pen pal. Could this unlikely pair beat the odds to become a couple? And should they, given their age difference, and the potential to break Ila’s home? Batra’s humble but beguiling film has an eye for the detail of Mumbai life (including the sad businessman’s trend of two-banana lunches, bucked by the glorious alternative of the hot-lunch service) and a deep ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊÎ{)

“It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be that neighbor?” Mr. Rogers was right, having caring neighbors is vital to nurturing children and youth and that’s why a “Caring Neighborhood” is so important in the development of a healthy community. A “neighborhood” is where you live, your school, faith group, sports team or club, or any other group of individuals. What’s important is that it’s a place where people care and connect with each other to create a supportive community. The 92nd Annual May Fête Parade theme encourages participants to showcase good neighborly behavior. What can we do, how does it look and who can we help? Show us that fun neighborly activity, let us see how to help and let us all know how we can be a good neighbor in our community. Let’s make all our communities fun, happy and supportive groups of individuals caring for each other. For an entry form, details and general parade information contact:

appreciation for the dual pleasures taken in making and consuming a good meal. Of course, “The Lunchbox” digs deeper than that, with a humanistic interest in both those darkest hours alone and the sweetest connections between people. Kaur is excellent as the unsure but intrigued Ila, and kudos too to Siddiqui, who conspires with Batra to turn what comes on like a stereotype into a surprisingly rich character, another unlikely catalyst for Saajan’s renewed yearning for meaningful personal connections. But the picture belongs to worldclass actor Khan. I’ll wager right now that there won’t be a better performance all year, though it’s not the type to win awards. Khan is too subtle for that, carrying Saajan with a furtive alertness embodying how he knows he’s getting away with something: rediscovering life just when he thought he’d be packing it in. The actor’s rare gift of low-key naturalism keeps the picture fascinating even when nothing much, on paper, would seem to be transpiring. In keeping with the slow-food trend of recent years, “The Lunchbox” takes its sweet time to get this small-scale drama — with its big emotional stakes — just right. Rated PG for thematic material and smoking. One hour, 44 minutes. — Peter Canavese

The Grand Budapest Hotel --If there were a valid critique to be given of “The Grand Budapest Hotel” — writer and 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. It all begins with the death of Madame CÈline Villeneuve Desgoffe und Taxis (a latex-masked, liver-spotted Tilda Swinton). Madame D 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 a fictitious Republic of Zubrowka. 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 Desgoffe und Taxis estate. Gustave finds himself in the crosshairs of his beau’s eldest son, Dmitri (Adrien Brody), and his leather-clad henchman, Joplin (Willem Dafoe). Due to the film’s breakneck pace, the audience never really gets a chance to delve deeply into what makes the story’s leading men tick. But “Budapest” is not meant to examine the faults, hang-ups and idiosyncrasies of individuals. Rather it is an examination of two colliding cultures. Gustave, Zero and all those who fight on their side, are an incarnation of The Grand Budapest Hotel, a world where etiquette, poetry, literature and art are the greatest achievements of humanity. Dmitri and Joplin represent the rising power of the jingoistic “Zig Zag” forces, who wear arm bands with the letters “ZZ,” clearly meant to hearken back to Hitler’s SS. Anderson’s storybook stylization and his deadpan sense of humor work perfectly before this most bleak of historical backdrops. It was an absurd time, and 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. — N.V.

Muppets Most Wanted --A self-aware sequel to the 2011 film “The Muppets,” “Muppets Most Wanted” provides more testament to the enduring appeal of the post-Vaudeville likes of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the Great Gonzo. When a Faustian booking agent named Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) comes calling, the Muppets eagerly sign on to a world tour, despite Kermit’s reservations. Turns out Badguy (cheekily pronounced “bad-gee”) is in league with “the world’s most dangerous frog,” international criminal Constantine. 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 Fey’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 — amusingly repurposed here as a CIA agent — and Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell doing Clouseau). Director James Bobin returns and co-scripts with the likewise returning Nicholas Stoller, while Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie — Oscar winner for the tune “Man or Muppet” — contributes several new songs. In cannibalizing the past, these new Muppet pictures play it a little safer than they should, leading to climaxes that feel more rote than inventive. 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. — P.C 300: Rise of an Empire --1/2 This prequel-sequel-parallel plotline to Warner Brothers’ 2006 hit will appeal mainly to meatheads, but those with a tolerance for over-the-top violence may appreciate it on other levels. One of those levels may be “sexy.” Another level is classical-epic sweep: This is a Homeric blend of legend and myth, with a credible take on glorified Greek attitudes to war that nods to its horrors while gleefully depicting bone-crushings, stabbings and amputations. “300: Rise of an Empire” concerns Themistokles of Athens (Sullivan Stapleton), a politician and general who plies Queen Gorgo of Sparta (Lena Headey) for support in the war against Persian invaders. Since Themistokles slew King Darius of Persia, the Athenian made a formidable enemy of Darius’ son Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). Xerxes hardly needs the added motivation, but Darius’ adoptive daughter Artemisia (Eva Green) goes all Lady Macbeth on Xerxes, prodding him to restyle himself as a god among men. It’s unabashedly hard-”R”-rated, and the fetishization of violence can be off-putting, especially in 3-D. But thanks largely to Green demonstrably having a ball, this strange brew of “Athenian shock combat” and “Abercrombie and Twitch” posing stands little chance of boring audiences. Rated R for strong sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence throughout, a sex scene, nudity and some language. One hour, 20 minutes. — P.C. The Lego Movie --It’s just another day in Bricksburg for Emmet Brickowoski (Chris Pratt, in hilariously bubbly mode), an ordinary, regular, generic construction worker Lego “mini-figure” in a disturbingly conformist world. With his “prodigiously empty mind,” Emmet is content to “follow the instructions” by rooting for the local sports team, drinking expensive coffee and singing insidiously infectious pop song “Everything is Awesome!!!” while he works. But a freedom fighter named Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) informs Emmet he might be “the Special” prophecied by a wizard named Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman). The surreal narrative that follows riffs on “The Matrix,” with its hero getting his mind blown by alternate realities as he comes to terms with being, just maybe, the only one who can save Legokind. Dastardly President Business (Will Ferrell) wields corporate control over everything (including voting machines) and plans to freeze society into the polar opposite of freedom. Armed with “the piece of resistance” and aided by a team of “Master Builders” who “change everything,” Emmet sets off on his Hero’s Journey. Rated PG for mild action and rude humor. One hour, 40 minutes. — P.C.

iscovery of 60 wooden folding chairs dating back to the 1930s hidden in ancient rolling drawers underneath a stage has inspired The Woman’s Club of Palo Alto to give new meaning to recycling and repurposing. The members decided to rescue the aging chairs and asked local artists to transform them into eccentric, expressive works of art. These chairs, which were displayed at different stores in downtown Palo Alto, are the focus of “The Painted Chair” project coordinated by The Woman’s Club and the Pacific Art League (PAL). They will be shown at The Woman’s Club on Friday, March 28, before a gala and auction the next day, during which members of the public can bid on the chairs

to take them home for their own. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Pacific Art League’s Capital Campaign and The Woman’s Club of Palo Alto’s Philanthropic Giving and Historic House Preservation Fund. Both organizations are housed in historic buildings (Woman’s Club’s is a Julia Morgan-designed structure dating to 1916; the Pacific Art League’s landmark 1926 building at 668 Ramona St. is under renovation). “It is absolutely fun,” said Jan Murphy, a Menlo Park resident who participated in transforming a chair. “You have one chair, which is plain and old, but people transform it into something different. It is amazing.” Murphy decided to depict local images on her chair: the Dish

Mark Garner created the painted chair, “Sit at Your Own Risk,” which sat in the window of Romi Boutique on Emerson Street. walking trail, Stanford University campus, the famous Stanford Theatre on University Avenue. Isaias Sandoval, a technical sales engineer and Pacific Art League member, said his chair was inspired by a painting he created for a past technology-oncanvas exhibit. “The original dark mahogany/

walnut stain of the chair inspired me to use only earthy complementary colors,” he said. “The dominant burnt sienna and complementary colors like yellow ocher and cadmium used in different tones and shades created the illusion of a tunnel. I used black for the legs so I wouldn’t distract from the main patterns, earthy colors and tones.” Jodie Stowe, a graphic designer from Menlo Park, painted her chair in a classic, simple color scheme of a black, gray and white. She then printed different sayings that relate to her grandmother’s saying “Let’s sit a spell” in graphite paper on her chair. “It (the Painted Chair project) gets different artists seen by the community,” Stowe said. “It is raising funds for two very good organizations, and it has been a fun project for all the artists involved.” The Painted Chair committee chairs, Sue Krumbein and Lolly Osborne, have been members (continued on page 37)

Home & Real Estate started with Downtown Streets Team and we got an education about an organization trying to really help the most down and out, and move them into something that was better,” Krumbein said. Most of the members, like Krumbein and Osborne, are volunteers who spend thousands of hours and donate hundreds of dollars to local nonprofit organizations. To kick off “The Painted Chair” Krumbein and Osborne sent out an email last October to solicit interest to the Pacific Art League, the club’s partner on this project. PAL then redirected their email to its members. “Within 24 hours, we had over 100 responses,” Osborne said. In November, all interested artists had the chance to pick up a chair at the Woman’s Club, where

Krumbein and Osborne said they sat out front to chat with anybody coming to pick up a chair. The process was first come, first served, but as all 60 chairs were quickly picked up and many more artists wanted to participate, they added an additional 20 chairs. “I was a little late,” Murphy recalled. “All (the) chairs were gone. In February, I got an email that a chair was available. “The two organizations are unique and special in this community, so I just wanted to give back a little to them.” Nancy Woods, a graphic artist from Burlingame, said that “it was a grand idea to get one item all the same and have different artists each put their own stamp on it.” Her chair’s design idea sprang from the saying “Change your words, change the world” us-

BASEBALL CHANGE-UP . . . Due to weather concerns, Stanford baseball will play a doubleheader with Pac-12 co-leader Oregon on Friday, starting at 3 p.m. The third game of the series is set for Saturday at 2 p.m., depending on the possible storm scheduled for that day. The teams originally were going to play single games Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Ducks come in with a 5-1 conference record (18-5 overall) and tied with Washington and UCLA for the top spot. Stanford (1-2 and 8-10) resides in seventh place and needs to have a successful weekend in order to move among the leaders. DIVE TEAM . . . Stanford’s Kristian Ipsen and Kassidy Cook are two of 25 divers named to the 2014 AT&T Olympic Performance Squad, as announced Wednesday by USA Diving. The AT&T Olympic Performance Squad includes divers who most exhibit the skill and determination to become 2016 Olympic Team members.

POLO SHOWDOWN . . . The No. 3-ranked Stanford women’s water polo team will have a shot at revenge when the Cardinal plays host to defending NCAA champion and top-ranked USC on Friday at 5 p.m. The Trojans are expected to arrive at Stanford with a 27-game win streak and a 20-0 record this season after facing Hartwick on Thursday and San Jose State on Saturday. Sunday’s showdown will be the first meeting between USC and Stanford since the two teams set an NCAA record for the longest NCAA Championship game in history last season, playing through three sudden-death periods before USC punched in the winner to claim the crown. Stanford brings a 15-1 record into the match, which will be the Cardinal’s Mountain Pacific Sports Federation opener. Stanford’s lone loss was to UCLA, 9-6, in the semifinals of the UCI Invitational on Feb. 23. Since then, the Cardinal has won six straight. Sunday’s match also is the first of three times that Stanford will appear on the Pac-12 Networks.

Stanford basketball fans will see senior Chiney Ogwumike (13) for the final time this weekend as the Cardinal women compete in the Stanford Regional in Maples Pavilion. Ogwumike will leave as the program’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder.

by Keith Peters t was just 15 years ago that Doc Scheppler took his Pinewood girls basketball team to ARCO Arena in Sacramento and the Panthers returned home with the program’s first CIF Division V State Championship. The year was 1999. Pinewood beat Chadwick of Palos Verdes that year, 61-45. It was Scheppler’s fourth season as head coach and his team finished with a 31-1 record. No Pinewood team previously, or since, has matched that gaudy mark. Lauren Smith-Hams scored a thenstate championship game record (for Division V) of 31 points for Pinewood, a record surpassed by future Stanford All-American Candice Wiggins in 2002. Other Pinewood starters that season included Sebnem Kimyacioglu,

Smith-Hams lives in Marin with two children and works in the business world after graduating from USC and receiving an MBA from Stanford. McLean lives in Sacramento and, among other things, teaches yoga. Collins is a physician and Feely is involved in work management recruiting for the restaurant business and lives in Santa Monica.

mike sisters played together and reached the national semifinal contest both years. The Cardinal went unbeaten in conference play both years, winning both the regular-season title and the conference tournament championship. When her older sister left, Chiney Ogwumike made sure there wouldn’t be much of a drop off. Stanford is 64-6 the past two years entering Sunday’s NCAA tournament game against Penn State in Maples Pavilion at 1:30 p.m. The semifinal of the Stanford Regional will be televised on ESPN2. Top-seeded South Carolina will play North Carolina at 4 p.m. The winners will play Tuesday at 6 p.m., with that winner advancing to the NCAA Final Four. No matter what happens, Ogwumike will be making her final appearance(s) in Maples Pavilion. “I’ve had a great experience over the last four years,” Ogwumike said. “I’m so glad life has brought me here, and I’ve been able to capitalize on all these things.” And her teammates have been happy to have her, as well. “My dad asked me earlier this year whom I’d most like playing with, past, present or future,” Ruef said. “I love passing to Chiney. She really is, in my opinion, the best player in the country.” It’s an opinion shared by many. Statistically, Ogwumike has no rival. There are players who have more points, more rebounds, a better field-goal percentage and more double-doubles than Ogwumike, though only Ogwumike is among the national leaders in all four categories. Ogwumike also has 63 blocked shots, 42 steals and 54 assists this season. Put it all together and the sum is greater than the parts. “She’s the greatest teammate,” Ruef said. “She’s humble and she’s a great leader. When things aren’t going well, she’s the one who rounds everybody up and says it will be all right.” Ogwumike, who will go early in the WNBA draft, is hoping to return to the Final Four for the third time in her collegiate. She missed out last year when the Cardinal fell to Georgia in the Sweet 16. “We want to win a national championship,” said Ogwumike, who finds a way to talk about team, deflecting questions about her. “When we use that language, we set our expectations high. Here at home, we have an important game. We have to play every game like it’s a national championship.” No matter what happens in the NCAA tournament, Ogwumike

Senior Chiney Ogwumike (13) will leave Stanford as its all-time leading scorer and rebounder, among her many accomplishments.

STANFORD REGIONAL WHAT: NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament Sweet Sixteen. WHERE: Maples Pavilion. WHEN: Semifinals on Sunday, 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Championship game Tuesday, 6 p.m. TV/Radio: All games on ESPN2; Stanford games broadcast on KZSU (90.1 FM). THE MATCHUPS: Stanford (31-3) vs. Penn State (24-7), 1:30 p.m.; South Carolina (29-4) vs. North Carolina (26-9), 4 p.m. THE SERIES: Stanford and Penn State are 1-1 all-time. LAST MEETING: Nov. 25, 2001 (Stanford 90, Penn State 68) ñ Honolulu, Hawaii. ABOUT PENN ST.: The Nittany Lions earned their trip to Stanford with opening-round wins over Wichita State (62-56) and Florida (83-61) at home in Happy Valley. Penn State, with Coquese Washington in her seventh year at the helm, is led by All-America candidate Maggie Lucas (21.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg) and Ariel Edwards (15.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg). NCAA HISTORY: Stanford is in the middle of its 28th overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament and 27th in a row. Stanford’s 28 tournament bids has the Cardinal alone in third place, passing Louisiana Tech (27) and remaining

takes her place among the elite to ever play women’s basketball at Stanford. Not only will she finish as the school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder, she will likely be first or second in other career categories like field-goal percentage, points per game, rebounds per game and blocked shots. Her next blocked shot will be No. 200, one behind Val Whiting for second all-time to Jayne Appel’s 273. Jennifer Azzi was always thought of as the greatest Cardinal of them all until she christened Candice Wiggins with the moniker in 2008. Ogwumike took over the alltime school scoring lead from Wiggins the first time she scored in Stanford’s 81-62 victory over South Dakota in the first round of the tournament. “I was aware of it,” Ogwumike said. “I got a text from Candice saying ‘you can do it; go for it.’” Ogwumike, who gave the world “Nerd City Kids” and “N-E-RD-S (#NerdAnthem),” said her desire to return home was the driving force behind Stanford’s visit to Ames, Iowa for the first

behind Tennessee, which has appeared in all 33 editions of the NCAA Tournament, and Georgia, which is making its 31st appearance in 2014. Stanford has reached 11 Final Fours (1990-92, 1995-97, 2008-12), third-most among all schools, and has reached the signature event in five of the past six seasons. This weekend’s action will be Stanford’s 21st appearance in the Sweet 16, and seventh in a row. HOME FOR NCAAs: This weekend’s NCAA Tournament action at Maples Pavilion will mark the fourth time the Cardinal has hosted an NCAA Regional (1990, 1994, 2003, 2014). It will also mark the 18th year in which Stanford will play an NCAA Tournament game on its own home court. Over those previous 17 years of hosting NCAA Tournament action, the Cardinal has racked up a record of 28-4 at Maples Pavilion, including a 3-1 mark in regional contests. Stanford went 2-0 in 1990 to reach its first Final Four (and went on to win its first national title), lost in the 1994 regional final to Purdue, and did not reach the 2003 regional rounds. The Cardinal is on an eight-game winning streak at home in tournament play, most recently sweeping last year’s first- and secondround games with wins of 72-56 and 73-40 over Tulsa and Michigan, respectively. N

two rounds. “We knew if we played hard we would get to play at Maples again,” she said. “That was our No. 1 challenge. I’d like to think we could find that again. If we play like that, we’ll be hard to beat.” Ogwumike was in the stands in San Antonio, watching her sister Nnemkadi play in the national championship game in 2010. Stanford lost, 53-47, to Connecticut after being up at halftime. “By that time I knew I was going to Stanford and realized it was a great program,” Ogwumike said. “I was so excited to go. I thought ‘Wow, this is the Final Four and Stanford is such a special place. It’s the pinnacle of women’s basketball and they are playing for all the right reasons. “You’re not playing for money and you’re not playing for serious notoriety,” she said. “You’re playing for school pride, for the coaching staff and for your family. What I saw then became my No. 1 goal. “We already have a great fallback with Stanford,” she said. “Why not go out and give it all we’ve got?” N

tanford senior Maya DiRado and head coach Greg Meehan took home Pac-12 Conference postseason awards, the league office announced Wednesday. DiRado earned the Pac-12 Women’s Swimmer of the Year honor, while Meehan was named the conference’s top swimming coach. It’s the first time the Cardinal has won either award since 2010. After a tremendous showing at the NCAA meet last week, DiRado was given the highest swimming honor in one of the top conferences in the nation. The senior swept the NCAA’s IM events, finished second in the 200 fly and contributed on two national championship relay squads as well as another third-place relay. She totaled six All-America honors to give her 21 over four years at Stanford. The Santa Rosa native has also excelled out of the pool. DiRado carries a 3.6 GPA, while majoring in management, science and engineering. She has yet to decide her future plans after graduation. DiRado becomes the 11th different Stanford swimmer to take award. Meehan led DiRado and the rest of the Cardinal to a surprise second-place showing at the NCAA championships. His team won seven events, which equaled its total from the last four years combined, to finish behind national champion Georgia and ahead of Pac-12 title-holder California. In his second year on The Farm, Meehan guided Stanford to move up six spots from its eighth-place effort in 2013, as the Cardinal accumulated its most points since 2000 and best finish since 2010. Meehan, who earned Stanford’s seventh conference coach of the year honor, was voted the national Swimming Coach of the Year by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America at the conclusion of the NCAA meet. Women’s golf Stanford tied for second at the San Diego State Farms Invitational, shooting a 1-over 289 Wednesday to finish the event at even-par with No. 2 UCLA. The teams went head-to-head with top-ranked USC, which won the tournament after shooting a finalround 6-under to notch a 3-under for the tournament. The three teams were grouped together in the final round, setting the stage for quite a showcase of college golf’s finest women’s performers to conclude the three-day, 54-hole event at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe. Stanford’s 864 (290-285-289) was three shots behind USC, and 17 shots better than fourth-place Arizona State among the 17-team

field. Lauren Kim (-2) and Casey Danielson (-1) finished their third round in the red for the Cardinal, with Mariah Stackhouse checking in with a 2-over 74. Kim was 6-under for the tournament to finish second, and Danielson was 5-under for third. Stackhouse made Stanford the only team with a trio of players in the top-10, signing in at fifth with a 1-over 217. Men’s golf Stanford announced Wednesday that its annual spring tournament, formally known as the United States Intercollegiate, will be renamed ‘The Goodwin’ in honor of former head coach Wally Goodwin. The tournament gets under way Friday at the Stanford Golf Course and concludes Sunday. The 54-hole event is open to the public. The 18-team field is comprised of host Stanford, UAB, Northwestern, Colorado State, San Jose State, Fresno State, Washington, TCU, Oregon, UC Davis, USC, St. Mary’s, UCLA, USF, Washington State, San Diego State, UNLV and Loyola Marymount. Goodwin coached at Stanford from 1983-2000, highlighted by winning the 1994 national title. Goodwin was named national coach of the year in 1992 and 1994. Women’s gymnastics Four Stanford gymnasts combined for five All-Pac-12 honors, as announced by the conference Wednesday. Kristina Vaculik earned firstteam all-conference honors in the all-around, and Nicolette McNair was named to the first team on vault and bars. Amanda Spinner claimed second-team honors on beam and Samantha Shapiro was a second-team selection on bars. Men’s tennis Maciek Romanowicz outlasted Tamas Batyi 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) at the No. 3 spot, clinching Stanford’s 4-3 nonconference victory over host UNLV on Wednesday afternoon. The Cardinal is 6-2. N

Palo Alto boys win first golf showdown with rival Gunn Menlo School golfers suffer their first loss and fall from three-way tie for first in the West Bay Athletic League race by Keith Peters

T

he Palo Alto boys grabbed sole possession of first place in the SCVAL De Anza Division golf race with a 179-187 victory over Gunn on Tuesday at the par-34 Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course layout. Both teams came into the first of two showdowns with perfect records. Paly left with a 7-0 mark while Gunn dropped to 7-1. “The whole team did what it needed to do,” said Paly coach Doyle Knight. “Both our 1-4 players were pretty even, so the guys knew they had to either beat their guy or stay close, which they all did.” With Paly holding a five-stroke lead, the match came down to the final pairing where the Vikings’ Henry Gordon shot 36 and Henry Hughes shot a 35 to secure the victory as Gunn’s No. 5 Anson Cheng shot 39 and No. 6 Karan Thapar shot 38. Matt Lewis and Eric Maser had been playing No. 5 and 6 for Paly,

but Knight also needed to spread the experience around his lineup. “It’s nice to have a deep team to be able to do that,” Knight said. Paly’s No. 1 John Knowles shared medalist honors with a 1-over 35 and held off Gunn’s Jack Jaffe (37). Sam Niethammer of Paly also won, 36-44, over Shai Mohan. Gunn gained back two strokes as Zach Tevanian shot 35 to Patrick Fuery’s 37. The Titans’ Herbert Wong picked up three strokes with a 38-41 advantage over Alex Hwang. Gunn bounced back from that loss and defeated Homestead, 213-221, on Wednesday to improve to 8-1. In West Bay Athletic League action, Menlo School fell out of a tie for first place following a 192202 loss to visiting Harker at Palo Alto Hills Golf & Country Club on a rainy Wednesday. Baseball Jack Cleasby had two hits and two RBI to help host Palo Alto

post a 7-3 victory over Los Altos in SCVAL De Anza Division action Wednesday. The Vikings (3-2, 5-6) scored six runs in the second and wound up stealing six bases to help Brian Kannappan pick up the pitching win. Boys lacrosse Sacred Heart Prep remained unbeaten in the SCVAL De Anza Division with a 9-7 victory over host Los Gatos on Tuesday. The Gators (3-0, 5-2) held a slim 6-5 halftime lead. Sean Mayle led the way with four goals with Frankie Hattler adding two goals plus two assists. Will Kremer finished with two goals and one assist and Noah Kawasaki contributed one goal. Goalie Jack Wise had 10 saves for SHP. Softball Erin Goode hit a walk-off RBI singles with out out in the bottom of the seventh to score Lili Huerta from third, delivering a 9-8 vic-

tory over visiting El Camino in PAL Ocean Division action. Huertra had reached first on an error and advanced to third on a single by Emily Katz and an outfield error. Goode then lined her single to center to end the game as the Bears improved to 2-0 in league (7-3 overall). Katz allowed just one earned run, striking out six and walking none while improving to 7-1. In the SCVAL El Camino Division, Gunn remained undefeated in league play with a 4-3 victory over visiting Mountain View. The Titans moved to 3-0 (7-2 overall) while the Spartans dropped to 1-1 (3-2). Boys tennis Menlo School handed host Sacred Heart Prep its first loss of the WBAL season, 7-0, on Wednesday. The victory was the 200th straight league win for Menlo coach Bill Shine in his 18th season with the Knights, who are 210-0 in league play since 1995.

Track and field The Gunn girls remained unbeaten in the SCVAL De Anza Division but the Gunn boys missed one key athlete due to illness and suffered its first loss during dualmeet action at Lynbrook. In the girls’ meet, Gunn posted a 101-21 victory that saw two events with less than a full field. Gunn senior Sarah Robinson won the 1,600 in a stadium record of 5:06.71 and doubled back to take the 800 in a meet record of 2:16.39. Fellow senior Adriana Noronha won the shot put (35-11 1/4) and discus (113-1). Gunn sophomores Robin Peter and Maya Miklos also took a pair of events. Peter won the 100 hurdles in 15.85 and 100 meters in 12.97. Miklos won the 400 in a meet-record 59.82 and doubled back with a 49.24 triumph in the 300 hurdles. In the boys’ meet, Gunn was without its top discus thrower and dropped a 65-62 decision to Lynbrook. N
