Ex-Paly principal disciplined for harassment Phil Winston found to have engaged in ‘unprofessional conduct and unsatisfactory performance,’ continues as a teacher at Jordan Middle School by Palo Alto Weekly staff



ormer Palo Alto High School Principal Phil Winston, who resigned last June 13 citing health and “work-life balance” reasons, was under investigation at the time by school district officials for multiple allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior involving both staff and students, according to documents obtained by the Weekly from the district. The Palo Alto Unified School District’s investigation substantiated most of the allegations, according to Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources Scott Bowers, and on Aug. 13 Winston was issued a formal “notice of unprofessional conduct and unsatisfactory performance.” He was also reassigned to a special education class at Jordan Middle School, where he is currently teaching. The notice, which Bowers said was recommended and prepared by the district’s lawyers, outlined six student- and four staffrelated incidents that supported its conclusions, and stated four “directives,” or actions required, of Winston to “correct these deficiencies immediately.” The actions included refraining from using profanity, sexual comments and innuendo, and derogatory terms; commenting on the physical attributes and the dress of students or colleagues; having any physical contact with students or staff; and engaging in actions and language that are flirtatious or sexual in nature. He

Library” is a misnomer because it is neither the largest branch (that would be Mitchell Park, which is being renovated) nor the administrative center (the Downtown Library). Rinconada, which is Spanish for “elbow” or “inside corner,” was adopted for both historical and geographical reasons. The land on which Palo Alto was developed was part of the Rancho Rinconada del Arroyo de San Francisquito land grant, a historical detail that the city commemorated in the mid-1920s when it gave the name Rinconada Park to what was once known as “City Waterworks Park,” according to a report from the Library Department.

Yet Rinconada proved to be a tough sell with the council, who in September sent the renaming proposal back to the drawing board. Some, including Klein, Price and Pat Burt, argued last year that the library should be named after a notable local person rather than a place. After more meetings, a reaffirmation by the library commission of its original choice and a deadlock by the council’s Policy and Services Committee, the council found itself without a clear front-runner Monday aside from the initial proposal. Price and Klein both lobbied for Birge Clark, the distinguished local architect who designed about 450 buildings in Palo Alto and Stanford University, including the

Drugs are drugs ... so you never know exactly what you’re getting. — Darin Conway, high school therapist, on why teens are often unaware of what they’re ingesting. See story on page 7.

Around Town

LOTS OF LOVE ... Palo Alto’s never-ending discussion about parking solutions spilled over into the public-arts arena Monday night, when the City Council held its annual joint meeting with the Public Arts Commission. While there was some talk of new sculptures, a proposed Arts Master Plan and the city’s new online catalog of public art, council members repeatedly came back to the one issue that continues to flummox and frustrate the city’s masses: parking. Council members Greg Scharff, Marc Berman and Larry Klein all talked about the fact that the city is planning on building a new downtown garage, possibly two, and asked the commission to look at ways to make the new structures visually pleasing. Berman acknowledged that making a garage look beautiful may sound a little like putting lipstick on the proverbial pig, but said the city should do what it can “to make those structures as appealing as possible.” Klein observed that “the ugliest buildings around in most communities are parking garages.” As one exception, he cited Miami Beach, Fla., which has won several awards for its parking structures. Klein issued a challenge for the commission. “One of their parking garages has become so popular that they now have weddings there,” Klein said. “That’s what I want for Palo Alto.” NORTHWARD BOUND ... After two busy years as an assistant planning director in Palo Alto, Aaron Aknin will soon be moving on to another city named after trees. Aknin has been hired by Redwood City to serve as its director of Community Development Department. Aknin, who has won plaudits from Palo Alto residents for his work in pursuing parking solutions downtown, will be charged in his new position with developing new strategies and improvements in “code enforcement, permit processing, building and engineering services,” according to an announcement from Redwood City. Bob Bell, city manager at Redwood City, praised Aknin for his “excellent reputation for working through complex policy issues and navigating projects in partnership with the community.” Aknin’s departure from Palo Alto was also announced at Wednesday’s meeting of the Planning and Transportation Commission, where he thanked commissioners for their work. “It’s been short but it’s been sweet,” he said of his time in Palo

Alto. Commissioner Vice Chair Arthur Keller thanked Aknin for his service. “I certainly have appreciated his intelligence and thoughtfulness and support of the work that we do,” Keller said. Aknin won’t be the first person to make the leap from Palo Alto to Redwood City in recent months. Curtis Williams, who retired as Palo Alto’s planning director last year, recently joined Redwood City as the interim planning manager. This means Williams will now be reporting to his former assistant director. REVERSAL OF POWER ... As a Stanford University undergraduate in the late 1970s Jeff Raikes was arrested while participating in a campus demonstration against the university’s investments in South Africa, whose government at the time enforced racial apartheid. Today the tables are turned as Raikes, now CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and a member of the Stanford University Board of Trustees, sits on the university’s Special Committee on Investment Responsibility. In a Q and A following a campus speech Tuesday, Raikes was asked if he’d sign a petition backing the divestment of Stanford’s fossil-fuels portfolio. “I don’t think they’d ask me,” he said. “What if they did? I’m not fully informed. These are the kinds of issues where I really think it requires some deep study, and I’d really want to do that and have not had that opportunity.” In his speech on “Wealth, Philanthropy and Inequality,” Raikes, who was an early employee of both Apple and Microsoft, advocated a research-based brand of philanthropy that encourages being willing to put money on innovative but risky ideas that, if successful, could spark large-scale change. Inherited wealth can distort values and undermine democracy, he said, quoting Warren Buffett to the effect that “he wanted his kids to have enough money that they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing.” MAKE WAY FOR THE SECRET SERVICE ... Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer is planning to host another Democratic National Committee fundraising event for President Barack Obama at her Palo Alto home on Thursday, May 8. Mayer has played host to the president before: She hosted a fundraising dinner at the house back in October 2010. The upcoming May 8 event is described as a reception. N


Council cautiously optimistic about financial future New forecast shows rising revenues and looming uncertainties

Lunch and Dinner

by Gennady Sheyner


alo Alto’s economic recovery may be in full bloom, but city leaders offered plenty of reasons for caution Monday, including uncertainties over labor negotiations, infrastructure needs and lease negotiations over Cubberley Community Center. Each of these wildcards clouds an otherwise bright picture in the city’s latest Long Term Financial Forecast, an annual report that presents a snapshot of the city’s economic health. The report, which covers the period of 201424, estimates that the city will have a surplus in each of these years and that these surpluses will range from $1.9 million to $8.9 million. This will result in a cumulative surplus of $47.5 million, according to the forecast. The optimistic assumptions are based on positive trends in just about every major revenue category, including sales, property and hotel taxes. The forecast shows the city’s revenues gradually increasing from $166.3 million in the current fiscal year to $225.5 million. Hotel taxes are expected to grow particularly fast

in the next two years thanks to new hotels such as the Epiphany on Hamilton Avenue and the Hilton at the former site of Palo Alto Bowl. The forecast shows transient-occupancy taxes growing by 14.1 percent this year, by 14.9 percent in 2015 and by 16.5 percent in 2016 before the numbers begin tapering off toward a more moderate increase of about 5 percent. Projections show the revenues from hotel taxes growing from $11.5 million this year to $25.7 million in 2024. Property taxes are also expected to continue their upward march. The new forecast shows them increasing by more than 5 percent annually over the next decade, going from $29.6 million this year to $51.1 million in 2024. Sales taxes are expected to rise over the same period from $23.8 million to $31.8 million. Yet the good news comes with a long list of caveats and qualifiers. Expenditures on employee salaries and benefits are expected to steadily rise in the General Fund, going from $99.6 million in 2014 to $141.3 million. This does not even

take into account the city’s new agreement with its largest union, the Service Employees International Union, Local 521. The contract grants the workers a 4.5 percent increase over two years (2 percent in the first and 2.5 percent in the second), along with additional raises for hundreds of workers based on the median market rates for their positions. Some employees in the Utilities and Public Works departments received raises of more than 14 percent, reflecting the city’s difficulty in retaining and recruiting workers for specialized positions. The forecast shows salaries increasing by 8.2 percent this year before settling into modest increases ranging from 0.26 percent in 2015 to 1.9 percent each year between 2016 and 2024. Overall, the total the city expects to spend on salaries in the General Fund (which does not include utilities) is projected to go up from $62.7 million in 2014 to $74.7 million in 2024.

Youth narcotics use is down, but potency of ‘street drugs’ is up


Arrest of naked man allegedly on narcotics uncommon but unsurprising, counselors say by Chris Kenrick


se of narcotics — like those allegedly ingested by the Palo Alto 18-year-old who was arrested after trespassing and fighting residents on Colorado Avenue Friday, April 4 — has declined among local youth, according to survey data. But police and youth counselors said the increased potency of many of today’s street drugs combined with relaxed attitudes toward marijuana use still land too many local teens in the hospital or in jail. Police booked 18-year-old Daiki Minaki of Palo Alto on one count of felony battery and six misdemeanor charges (resisting arrest, battery on an officer, under the influence of narcotics, battery and two counts of trespassing) after apprehending him naked in Midtown, having allegedly beaten a woman walking her dog and fought two residents in their homes. “This kind of episode is not common — and I understand why we are curious and concerned,� said Becky Beacom, manager of health education at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.

“Our small percentages (of narcotics use by youth) still translate into too-high numbers of actual youth whom we care about and, in this particular case, innocent victims as well.� Self-reported use of prescription narcotics, such as oxycontin and vicodin — even once — dropped among Palo Alto 11th graders from 9 percent in 2010 to 7 percent in 2012, according to the California Healthy Kids Survey. Use of heroin in the same period dropped from 2 percent to 1 percent. New survey results for 2014 are expected to be released soon, Beacom said. Police and drug counselors could only speculate on how Minaki could have ingested whatever substance allegedly sparked Friday’s outburst that led to his arrest. But they said increased potency of today’s street drugs can have unintended consequences, whether someone is a first-time user or a repeat user. “It could be that he thought he was smoking marijuana and it was laced with something,� said Darin

Conway, a therapist who runs the mental-health counseling program at Los Gatos High School through Counseling and Support Services for Youth (CASSY). “The rules still apply that if you’re at a party and you’re drinking something, don’t set your drink down and leave it alone and pick it up again, because you never know what somebody’s going to slip into something,� she said. “Drugs are drugs — they’re illegal and they’re not regulated so you never know exactly what you’re getting.� Palo Alto Police Detective Sergeant Brian Philip said he sees a serious problem in Palo Alto with abuse of prescription drugs among youth. “They’ll either take it from their parents or go into other parents’ medicine cabinets at high school parties,� Philip said. Philip said he’s seen local high school students who were crushing and encapsulating painkillers such as oxycodone, hydrocodone and vicodin, cutting dosages in

figures. It notes that any additional cost beyond the 2 percent projected increase in salary and benefits, unless offset with other savings, will result in additional costs to the General Fund. Other factors that could cut into Palo Alto’s economic prosperity include the rising costs of retiree health care; costs relating to the city’s takeover of the Palo Alto Airport from Santa Clara County; possible changes to the city’s fire-protection agreement with Stanford University; lease ne-

gotiations with the school district over Cubberley Community Center and broader changes in the local, state and regional economies. At the same time, the council is looking at a long list of infrastructure projects it hopes to build in the coming years, including a new police headquarters, two fire stations and a host of bike improvements. Given these uncertainties and obligations, the council was tempered in its celebration of the city’s financial upswing during its Monday meeting discussion. “The report looks very positive, which is great, but there’s still a lot of things that we want to get accom-

His colleagues agreed. Councilman Larry Klein noted that as recently as 2009, the city’s longterm financial projections showed a decade of deficits. Happily,

those projections didn’t bear out, but they further underscored the difficulty of predicting the future beyond a year or two. “If it changed one way, it can change the other way,” Klein said. “I feel good about where we are but it’s really with several grains of salt, because that’s the way this goes.”

City Manager James Keene agreed and said that while a 10year forecast is a valuable tool for planning, he doesn’t have much confidence in it beyond two or three years. “All we need is a couple of swings and the whole line tips,” Keene said. N

Mobile app aims to bring more commerce to downtown Users can opt for free delivery or same-day pick up at local stores by Elena Kadvany


fledgling Palo Alto startup is trying to tackle a difficult 21st-century challenge: bridge the ever-widening gap between local brick-and-mortar businesses and the booming world of mobile commerce. The bridge comes in the form of Downtown, a mobile applicationmarketplace where local businesses, large and small, can list a curated selection of their top-selling items for customers to peruse and purchase. This could be a pair of shoes from footwear-and-clothing store Keen Garage, a USB cord from the Apple store, a caprese salad from Coupa Café or a dozen cupcakes from Kara’s Cupcakes. After purchasing, users can opt to have their goods delivered for free or to pick them up in the store the same day. “There’s so many advantages of physically going to a store or having something from a local

store,” said Downtown CEO and co-founder Phil Bückendorf, a German entrepreneur who came to the United States about a year ago. “Maybe we can reinvent how local commerce works so we can give the little guy from High Street a comeback, and he can catch up because he’s (now) on a technology level (that’s) competitive with Amazon and other online marketplaces.” Bückendorf explained his vision of the free, iPhone-only app as a virtual version of a physical downtown where stores congregate and share customers. “We said, ‘Well, what does the real world look like?’ It’s all these stores and they try to be centered somewhere, which in this case is University Avenue, because they share customers. So this coffee shop is sharing customers maybe with Keen (Garage) or with Alegio Chocolate or with Apple.

There’s a reason why in the real world they bundle with each other and locate around one street.” Downtown aims to be a reflection of Palo Alto’s real downtown, with a small list of local stores that rotate depending on the time of day (and at some later date, the user’s location). Open the app in the morning, and there will be breakfast-centric places like Coupa or La Boulange; later in the afternoon Keen Garage, Whole Foods or macaron boutique Chantal Guillon might pop up. Photos accompany each store and item. The prices are the same as they would be in the brick and mortars (though they might look different because they include normal taxes); there are no delivery fees, taxes or tips. As is, the app mostly draws from the downtown area, but California Avenue Italian restaurant Terun often shows up at mealtimes. Downtown currently

operates Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the 94301, 94303, 94304, 94305 and 94306 zip codes, but hopes to expand in the future. With the user in mind, there aren’t more than 10 or so items available for purchase (or even less) from any store, Bückendorf said. “The things we have learned is that there’s a significant difference between mobile commerce and ecommerce,” he said. “When we see consumers shopping from mobile applications, they do not like to search for things or scroll through a lot of content. This is a step which has to be done by us or by the store before the customer starts shopping. Because if there’s just too much content, which is not appealing to the customer, he will just close the app. It’s not in the interest of the store nor the customer.” Robbin Everson, owner of the Bryant Street boutique choco-

late store Alegio Chocolate, said Downtown has particular appeal for her as a small-business owner who struggles to compete with ecommerce giants like Amazon. “I was intrigued by it because (mobile exposure) is an area that small-business people have a need for,” she said. ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£È)

Hyde, 53, was hiking with her husband and daughter near the Devil’s Bridge, north of Sedona, Ariz., in an area known for its rock formations, when she fell about 75 feet in a freak accident, her husband Larry said. She was sitting on a nearby rock while he took photos of their 13-year-old daughter, Melanie. For some reason, she stood up and tripped, and the momentum caused her to fall head-first into the ravine, he said. A trauma nurse and several other people immediately went to her aid. Winds of more than 20 miles per hour and gusts exceeding 35 miles per hour prevented her evacuation by air ambulance, he said. With precious minutes turning into hours, rescue personnel carried her about a quarter mile to an off-road vehicle, and she was taken by ambulance to the Flagstaff Medical Center, where she succumbed to her extensive injuries several hours later. Hyde loved to travel and to plan vacations. She would plan the trips and pull out maps, and she loved the American Southwest in general, visiting Anasazi ruins and hiking in Utah, according to her husband Larry.

Carol Hyde is flanked by her husband, Larry, and daughter, Melanie, in this undated photo at Stanford Stadium. “She spent endless hours researching the very best place to stay and the very best things to do,” Hyde said. “She had been looking forward to going to Sedona for the last year or so. Even despite this tragedy, she was doing something she wanted to do and she was where she wanted to be.” Carol Hyde had a way that affected people deeply, even those who barely knew her. Persons who had encountered her on the trail that day said they immediately felt her warmth and caring spirit. “In just the few moments we shared at the bridge, Carol made us smile with her friendly, caring way. I can only imagine how amazing she was in life,” Alisa Hoover, who was also hiking in

the same area, said in a posting below a story about the tragedy by the Verde Independent newspaper in Cottonwood, Ariz. “Everybody had the same impression of her and feeling about her — her compassion, her friendliness, the smile. She always made children feel very special. She made you feel like you were the most special person when she met you,” Bitler said. Hyde was loving, gentle, bright, generous and warm, she said. “I’ve never heard her utter a negative word about somebody. I never heard her complain. She just had a positive, joyful outlook about life. She made you happier when you

News Digest Student service entrepreneurs think globally Fifteen Gunn sophomores and juniors won grants for community service projects ranging from creating educational videos — in Bengali — for the children of single mothers in Bangladesh to building a “bike fix-it” station on the Gunn campus for the school’s 800-plus daily bike commuters. Funds for the $200 grants were raised through parent donations to Gunn @ Your Service, a service “booster club” founded by a Gunn parent, Leif Erickson, about a decade ago. The organization went dormant sometime after Erickson’s children graduated, but was revived four years ago by current Gunn parent Lauren Janov. Grant winners are sophomores Samia Islam, who will use her grant to purchase an Android tablet that she will load with English and math videos she creates in Bengali for the students at Utsho; Micah Roschelle, who will buy folic acid and hemoxide that she will deliver to doctors and clinics in Cameroon working to prevent sickle-cell anemia; Eleanor Su, who will buy ingredients for bake sales that will generate funds her Schools for Africa Fund, which will build a school in Sierra Leone and help provide epilepsy treatment; Rick Wytmar, who will purchase all the materials needed to build a permanent message board to help the Ohlone Elementary School farm supervisor communicate the farm’s daily needs to teachers and students; and Justin Yang, who will build the solar heating component of the Cluck Bucket, a solar-powered egg incubator to combat malnutrition and enable economic opportunities in developing countries. Gunn juniors winning grants are Gabriel Alon, who will print postcards created by Gunn photography students for others to fill out expressing their positive feelings toward Gunn and Palo Alto to counter negativity that they’ve heard; Ian Cramer, who will offset the cost of materials to build a fullystocked “fix-it” station that Gunn’s bike commuters can use to maintain and repair their bikes; Aitan Grossman, who will purchase materials to build a working prototype of his energy-saving regenerative bicycle brake that gives riders a boost; Irene Jeong,who will buy sheet music and accessories, rent instruments and pay for instrument repair for low-income music students attending Music @ Costano classes taught by Gunn students in East Palo Alto; Auston Lee, who will buy math materials and games for Buddies4Math, a program started by a Gunn student in 2010; Minku Lee, who will purchase musical instruments and pay for printing music for homeless East Palo Alto students living in the InnVision shelter who have not yet been exposed to music instruction; Klaire Tan, who will publish East Palo Alto middle school students’ work written in her after-school writing and journalism workshops and cover student transportation costs to places and organizations the students are writing about; Leland Wei, who will purchase materials needed to build guards to protect plants and make signs for the Gamble Garden; and Rachel Wu and Tony Zunino, who will buy supplies for and promote Gunn students’ Bay Area Youth in Computer Science project.

Palo Alto considers raising water rates Palo Alto’s plan to give the city’s water customers a rare reprieve from rising rates has been jeopardized by an unexpected spike in the cost of replacing aged mains, according to Utilities Department officials. Now, officials are considering raising rates by 4 percent in November, an increase that they say would allow expected future rate hikes to be relatively small. The recommendation, which was presented to the Utilities Advisory Commission on March 26 and which the City Council’s Finance Committee will consider Tuesday night, was a departure from the department’s original plan to keep all utility rates steady in fiscal year 2015, which begins July 1. Jon Abendschein, a senior resource planner at the Utilities Department, said the new recommendation to raise rates in the fall was driven by several “uncertainties” that have recently emerged relating to capital improvements. Bids for two major water-main-replacement projects have come back much higher than expected, he said. And costs for work on the city’s 25-year water-main replacement program have generally gone up because of a hotter construction climate in an improved economy, he said. At the same time, the city is now using pipes with larger diameters because of fire-code regulations and is switching to HDPE (high density polyethylene) pipes, which he said have a lower lifecycle cost but a higher upfront cost. Because of the various cost increases, Abendschein said staff felt it was prudent to raise water rates by 4 percent on Nov. 1. N — Gennady Sheyner


Plan to widen El Camino sidewalks sidelined

Give blood for life! b l o o d c e n t e r. s t a n f o r d . e d u


Palo Alto proposal to have bigger building setbacks fails to win support of Planning and Transportation Commission


by Gennady Sheyner


ith pressure mounting against Palo Alto’s effort to widen sidewalks on El Camino Real, the city’s planning commissioners took a stand Wednesday against a staff proposal to require new developments be built farther back from the curb. In rejecting the proposed sidewalk ordinance by a 3-1 vote, with Chair Mark Michael absent and Vice Chair Arthur Keller dissenting, the Planning and Transportation Commission suggested instead to include the sidewalk changes in Our Palo Alto, the broader city initiative meant to encourage community conversation about the city’s future. The two-year effort aims to engage the public in building a long-term vision for the city, concurrent with the ongoing upgrade of the city’s land-use bible, the Comprehensive Plan. The sidewalk ordinance was drafted in response to the City Council, which in recent years has been fielding criticism from residents upset about dense and massive new buildings going up close to the city’s curbs. Commonly cited examples include the Arbor Real townhouses on El Camino and the former Miki’s Farm Fresh Market on Alma Street (a space now occupied by Grocery Outlet). Last April, council members Greg Scharff, Karen Holman, Gail Price and Greg Schmid issued a memo complaining about developments that have “generated consternation in the community and a strong negative reaction by members of the public as to how close the buildings are to the street and how the buildings turn their backs on the public right of way due to inadequate setbacks and building articulation and openings to reduce the building mass.” The ordinance drafted by staff would increase the sidewalk requirement on El Camino Real from the current level to 12 feet, though it would fall short of the 18 feet envisioned in the regional Grand Boulevard Initiative. The proposal would maintain a 12-foot minimum while also requiring an average building setback of 15 to 18 feet. It would only apply to new developments, a point that staff emphasized Wednesday but did little to alleviate the angst of the property owners in attendance. Chief Planning Official Amy French said the ordinance would be the first step in a broader effort to revise building regulations on major thoroughfares. The second phase would consider thoroughfares beyond El Camino and look at other factors such as building heights. She stressed that the new

rules would introduce more flexibility into the review process. They would, for instance, allow a property owner to build columns or arcades 9 feet away from the curb, a design that would allow upper floors of a building to be closer to the curb than the ground floor. The proposed ordinance would also modify the “build to line” requirement that forces buildings to be 12 feet from the curb unless the developer receives an exemption from the city. The ordinance would eliminate this requirement for all streets except El Camino and specify that on El Camino the requirement could apply to upper floors if the ground floor is set back further from the curb. The ordinance would also empower the Architectural Review Board to modify this requirement on a project-by-project basis, based on context. “The focus of the ordinance is to allow for flexibility in the review of buildings coming forward along El Camino,” French said. Staff had also proposed re-


ducing the allowed density at 33 properties on El Camino that under state law will now be allowed to raise the number of housing units per acre from 15 to 20. The council suggested reducing the allowed floor-area ratio (total development footage) to ensure that the new units are small. Though the architectural board approved most of the proposed changes on March 20 (with the notable exception of the density reduction), the sidewalk ordinance ran into a wall of resistance at Wednesday’s planning commission meeting. Some property owners derided the regional vision of El Camino as a “grand boulevard,” while others argued that the new ordinance would limit their ability to redevelop their properties. The commission voted 3-1 to incorporate the sidewalk discussion into the Our Palo Alto initiative and concluded its discussion to a round of applause from relieved property owners. N

Silicon Valley Robot Block Party showcases new technologies in Palo Alto by Sue Dremann


hey ranged from funky robot pirates to sleek, sophisticated surgical devices and a robotic guide for the blind that could replace guide dogs. The Silicon Valley Robot Block Party on Wednesday afternoon featured more than 40 robots of every level of simplicity and complexity at Palo Alto law firm WilmerHale. WilmerHale and Silicon Valley Robotics, an association that supports innovative robotic technologies, sponsored the April 9 event. The robot party is in its fifth year and attracted people of all ages, from school kids to investors. The robot party gave inventors a chance to show off technologies for consumers, heavy industries, technology and medicine. On display were a driverless car, programmable lawnmower and gear to travel the surface of Mars. In the consumer arena, Steve Castellotti demonstrated Puzzle Box’s Orbit, a small helicopter that users can learn to operate through mind control. Users can boost their powers of concentration by focusing on images on their mo-

licopter, you can practice skills of concentration and mental relaxation,” Castellotti said. Users can also steer the helicopter with a tablet computer. Other consumer-oriented robots included the nifty Egg-Bot kit, which creates elaborate Fabergestyle designs on eggs with a fine pen or wax stylus. The egg designs can be dyed multiple colors and create precise, intricate images and even writing as fine as the dot from an ink-jet printer. Another robot, a programmable Bosch lawnmower, roamed the lawn Wednesday while a space rover from NASA easily climbed up steps and raced around the grass. NASA Ames’ Intelligent Robotics Group, which includes graduate engineering students from a variety of universities, showed off its latest prototypes for wheel-less land rover models. The flexible ball-like structures are collapsible and can carry a load of instruments in their center. Dropped from space to the surface of Mars, for example, the balls are capable of bouncing and rolling over the planet’s tough terrain. Unlike wheeled vehicles, they won’t snag and can reach previously inaccessible areas, Drew Sabelhaus said. “It’s cheaper to manufacture and it is its own airbag,” Aliakbar Toghyan, a University of California, Berkeley, graduate student, said. Sabelhaus demonstrated a caterpillar-like structure that is based on the human spine. It is remarkably flexible and also has tensile strength, enabling it to wriggle and bend over rocks, he said. Industrial robots included a vertical climber that is used for bridge inspections, invented by SRI International. The device, which looks like a thin solar sheet ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ£È)

half and selling them by the pill. But alcohol and marijuana remain the paramount issues for Palo Alto teens, police and counselors said. Moves toward legalizing marijuana in some states have led to a reduction in perceived risk of what actually remains a dangerous drug for teens, they said. “Marijuana is a very serious problem. It’s a gateway drug,” Philip said. “It can have serious effects on someone’s developing brain.” In the 2012 California Healthy Kids Survey, 23 percent of Palo Alto 11th graders reported having used marijuana four or more times — slightly up from 21 percent in 2010. Thirty-two percent reported having used alcohol four or more times — down from 37 percent in 2010. Palo Alto police cited 22 juveniles for possession of marijuana, either on school campuses or in the community, since Jan. 1, 2013, he said. In two recent cases, a Palo Alto middle school student was caught smoking marijuana in a school bathroom and a high school student on campus was found in possession of narcotics, marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia, according to Palo Alto Police Detective and School Resource Officer DuJuan Green. Therapist Connie Mayer, director of outpatient counseling services at Palo Alto’s Adolescent Counseling Services, said she was not surprised by the apparent bad reaction Minaki experienced last Friday. “The only real surprise here is that he wasn’t wearing any clothes and was quite violent,” she said. “We see teens that are overdosing and having bad reactions” leading to hospitalizations. Adolescent Counseling Services Executive Director Philippe Rey said, “There’s a trend of community apathy when it comes to drug use — especially marijuana — where parents will no longer put their kids in treatment because it’s ‘only marijuana’ and as long as they’re keeping their grades up, who cares? “We’re still talking about underage kids with their brain functions still developing, and it may affect their cognitive abilities and development.” Mayer said there’s a “misperception that marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol, especially with legalization and with parents who may have smoked in the ‘60s and ‘70s. “But it’s a different drug now, much more potent,” she said. “There are derivatives of potency that are unbelievable. “There’s so much shame in this community, and we reduce that here,” she said. “We provide a safe place for parents and teens to talk, without pain or shame, about what’s going on and to heal.” N Staff Writer Chris Kenrick can be emailed at ckenrick@

were around her,� Bitler said. Hyde was a Palo Alto native. She graduated from Cubberley High School in 1978 and from U.C. Santa Barbara in 1983. She worked at Kidder, Peabody & Co. in Palo Alto from 1984 to 1985 as an assistant to a broker. She met her husband at the firm, he said. The couple moved to New York where she worked as a graduate career counselor at Pace University from 1987 to 1990. They returned to Palo Alto that year, and she worked as the office manager at Crate and Barrel for 10 years. Hyde loved hiking, camping, and the outdoors in general. She was an accomplished runner, having twice competed in the New York City Marathon, her husband said. She was a member of Palo Alto’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Hyde was an avid Stanford football and San Jose Sharks fan, and she always made efforts to arrive before the gates opened to maximize family time at the fun events, he said. She loved studying her family lineage, making a trip to Norway where she visited the town of her ancestors. But the real profession and joy of her life was her family, her husband said. It was a role she poured her soul and creativity into, he said. Halloween was her favorite holiday and she used her creativity on costumes for Melanie, he said. She spent countless hours with her daughter at the Christian Music Theater at Grace Lutheran Church. “She was a wonderful wife and mother. She was thoughtful. She would think about how she said things. She was very thoughtful about the way she approached people,� her husband said. Hyde also found great love and value in tradition, even in the smallest event, Bitler said. It wasn’t about grand adventures. It was the little things — a sandwich or a walk of a ball game — the shared events that make up a life. And she turned those events into part of her personal and family narrative. “She really valued her history in Palo Alto and growing up here. She enjoyed running into people in town with their kids that she grew up with, and now her kid’s playing with their children,� she said. Hyde is survived by her husband, Larry; her daughter, Melanie; her father, Leland Stewart, all of Palo Alto; and her sister, Louise Stewart (Craig) and niece and nephew Alison and Jason of Santa Barbara. She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Stewart, a Palo Alto art teacher.

ration for Clark, they were puzzled by the proposal to rename the Main Library after him. Though his Spanish Colonial style was deeply influential, Clark didn’t have any special connections to local libraries. Furthermore, the Main Library building was designed by Edward Durell Stone, an architect with more modern leanings. For several council members, including Karen Holman, Liz Kniss and Greg Scharff, the idea of naming a building designed by one prominent architect after a different prominent architect would foster confusion. “I don’t think you can get further apart in terms of what these things look like,” Scharff said, referring to the two styles. Though the council voted to adopt Rinconada, there was little enthusiasm among members for this choice. Holman said she’d be happy with leaving it as Main Library, though quickly added that that’s “not where the votes are.” Of the options on the table, she said Rinconada is the best because of its historical significance. Burt, who last year supported naming the building after a person, concluded on Monday that no front-runner had emerged and that Rinconada is the only name that appears to have community support. “It should be somewhat of a consensus in the community over that naming,” Burt said. “The only consensus I’m hearing is around Rinconada.” The only other name featured in Monday’s discussion was Doris Richmond, a longtime librarian at the branch and the first black em-

ployee hired by the City of Palo Alto’s library system, according to Loretta Green, a retired journalist who frequently patronized the library in the pre-Internet days. Green was one of three speakers who lobbied for naming the branch after Richmond. “She was hugely popular, deeply loved and respected by her coworkers,” Green said. The council didn’t preclude the possibility of naming another facility for Richmond or another distinguished Palo Altan. Burt,

for instance, raised the prospect of attaching a person’s name to a building while retaining its geographical name. He cited as an example the Pearson-Arastradero Preserve, which the council had changed to recognize conservationist Enid Pearson. “In the future, if the community coalesces around a particular person we want to recognize, I’d be open to that,” Burt said.

The delivery option is also a huge boon for small companies. She said Alegio tried doing deliveries from its Berkeley store and gave up because it took time and resources the company simply didn’t have. As the Downtown startup is a small team, Bückendorf and another team member are currently doing the deliveries themselves. He said their delivery time is an average of 30 minutes. “In general, retail is kind of at an inflection point right now,” said Brad Fuerst, retail director for Keen Garage, which also operates stores in Portland, Prague and Tokyo. “What Downtown really enables us to do is to integrate our mobile (and) our online to our brick and mortar, which is going to be more so the case as more people, especially in Palo Alto, will be shop-

ping on their mobile phones. The ability for Downtown to satisfy same-day delivery is a pretty large competitor advantage for us.” Downtown is also sales-based, so the companies who list their products on the app do not have to pay any fee to do so. Downtown has partnered with some of the stores — not all of them — and from those partnerships, collects a small commission fee, already included in the credit-card fee. “This is excellent too because small-business people struggle financially and most other venues charge a monthly fee,” Everson said. “It’s all based on sales. That’s why promotions such as Groupon have an appeal too, because there’s not an outlay of capital, which none of us have. It’s all going into product, people and stores. So this is something that could do very well for smallbusiness people.” N Online Editor Elena Kadvany can be emailed at ekadvany@

The university’s Volkswagen Automation Innovation Lab hosted the previous four block parties. But the change of venue marks a step forward for robotics, Glenn Luinenburg, corporate partner at WilmerHale, said. “It represents a real fundamental shift away from the research labs. Robots are moving out of the lab into commercialization,” he said. The law firm represents many early-stage startups and emerging-stage companies in high tech. Though many of the firm’s clients

Transitions Births, marriages and deaths

George Browning George N. Browning, a longtime resident of and volunteer in Palo Alto, died on March 22 while staying with his son in Atascadero, Calif. He was 87. He was born in San Francisco and served at the end of WWII. Afterward, he attended the University of California, Berkeley. Following graduation he was hired

by Varian Corporation, where he worked for 37 years. Settling in Palo Alto around 1950, he lived in the city for the rest of his life. In his retirement, he took on many civic activities in Palo Alto. He volunteered at the Palo Alto Police Department for 20 years, clocking in 6,891 hours of service, according to his partner Jean Wilcox. He was a neighborhood

leader in Charleston Gardens, organizing an e-mail tree and block parties. He also worked with the Emergency Preparedness group and Palo Alto Neighborhoods.

Emery H. Rogers Emery H. Rogers, 92, passed away peacefully and with grace on March 28th. An early pioneer of Silicon Valley, he embodied the true spirit of the Valley with his vast intellectual curiosity, philanthropic nature, kindness and intelligence. He was fascinated with everyone he met, establishing a connection and rapport that was legendary. But Emery’s battery was primarily charged by his deep love and support for his family. Emery was born in Los Angeles on March 31st, 1921, to Eleanor Hamlin and Emery Rogers. His father was an early and famed aviator who owned Rogers Airport on LA’s Wilshire Blvd and made the first flight from LA to SF and back in one day. Emery grew up in Beverly Hills, entered Stanford University in 1941and became the university’s first physics major. He also played on the Varsity tennis team that won the 1942 NCAA Championship. A self-taught popular pianist, Emery made extra money during college playing jazz and honky-tonk piano at Woodside’s Peanut Farm. He was a member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity and remained in contact with many of his fraternity brothers around the world. During WWII, Emery worked on the Joint Army Navy Precipitation Static Project at the Naval Research Laboratory in Minneapolis, developing the “wick-discharger,” which allowed aircraft to maintain radio contact during electrical storms, technology that is still in use today. Emery completed his doctorate in physics at Stanford in 1951 after researching an early form of MRI technology, nuclear magnetic resonance, under the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Felix Bloch. In 1949, Emery joined Varian Associates, one of the Valley’s first tech companies. His early work at Varian included participating in combining the physics and chemistry worlds and commercializing the technology. His natural skills as a manager and in business and science were established early, and he became a Senior Vice President as Varian Associates grew. He joined HewlettPackard in 1967, managing the international Analytical Instrument Group. A true tinkerer, Emery built his family’s first hi-fi from a Heathkit. A brilliant

photographer, he loved developing in his darkroom and took his family to photograph the Old Stanford Barn, the day before it was torn down to make way for Stanford Hospital and Medical School. In 1966, Emery married Nancy Straubel Freeborn and their combined family of eight children spent many happy summers on their beloved MacMahan Island, Maine. A lover of opera, Emery taught himself Italian to deepen his appreciation. To support his team at HP in Germany, he learned to speak fluent German. He became a serious runner in the ‘60s and was an athlete always, playing tennis well into his 80s. In 1979, William Hewlett and David Packard asked him to start a charitable foundation for the company, which he managed until 1986. He was President of the Board at Children’s Health Council, Vice President of the Palo Alto United Way Board, and participated on the boards of the Scientific Apparatus Makers Association, San Jose PBS TV station KTEH, Channing House, Stanford Convalescent Hospital (initiating the Stanford Summer Symphony) and Castilleja School. Emery was elected as a Fellow to the National Academy of Sciences in 1983. Emery and Nancy lived in Palo Alto for many years, the last at The Hamilton where they formed rich and lasting friendships with the other residents. He was also a member of the Palo Alto Club. Emery is survived by his wife, Nancy, his three children, Emery Rogers of Gilroy, Meredith Callahan of Boulder, CO and Anne Wager of Seattle, WA; five stepchildren: Gay Freeborn of Brownfield, ME, Tricia Christopher of Oakland, Nancy Freeborn of San Francisco, Charles Freeborn of Portland, OR and Philip Freeborn of Berlin, Germany; four grandchildren: Catherine Callahan Nichols, Emery Wager, Abigail Wager and Lily Rogers; two great grandchildren: Camille Sylvie and Elsie Marie Nichols; and four step-grandsons: Brian and Dylan Christopher and Philip and Alexander Kurz. Contributions to The National Kidney Foundation or The Lucille Packard Foundation for Children’s Health are suggested. PA I D

In his spare time, he loved to travel, work on his cars, spend time with his family and friends and doodle. He is survived by his sons Christopher L. James Jr. and Timothy A. James of San Diego, Calif.; his son Jeremy D. James of East Palo Alto; his son Kevin Jones (Kristine) of Gilroy; and his daughter Kiara Queen Esther James of East Palo Alto. He is also survived by his grandmother Equilla James of Santa Maria, Calif.; his parents Juan and LeGatha Rivero of San Francisco; his sister Vivian James of Berkeley; and a nephew, a great-niece, two grandchildren, aunts, uncles and friends. A memorial service was held on April 1 at the Mt. Olive Apostolic Original Holy Church of God in Menlo Park.

Frances B. Hogan Frances B. Hogan passed away peacefully on Monday, March 31, 2014, surrounded by her loving family and caregivers at her longtime home in Palo Alto. Born January 15, 1928, in Portland, Oregon to John and Martha Beckwith, Fran spent her childhood years in the Portland area. In the late 1930’s, the Beckwith family built a vacation cabin in Central Oregon which soon became Fran’s favorite place on earth. Over the years, she and her family would spend countless hours exploring the wonders of Central Oregon from their cabin on the Metolius River. Fran’s father was a naval officer and during World War II the family relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she completed high school at The Hamlin School in San Francisco. She attended Stanford University where she met the love of her life, Dick Hogan. They both graduated in 1949 and married in 1950. Fran and Dick made their home in Palo Alto where they raised their five children. Fran was a very caring person who was active in multiple community and charitable organizations including Los Altos Hills Horsemen’s Association, Wedde Handiswimmers, Mid-Peninsula Open Space District, Westwind 4-H Therapeutic Riding Program, and numerous others. Fran and Dick enjoyed a life of extensive world travel. Their excursions often included their children and grandchildren. These travels are the subject of many fond family memories among three generations of Hogan’s. When at home in California and Oregon, Fran loved spending time with her family and often hosted events such as celebrating the Fourth of July on the Metolius River. Fran is survived by her sister, Mary Smith of Oregon, her 5 children - John Hogan, Martha Dale, Rich Hogan, Mary HoganBotkin, and Ted Hogan; 12 grandchildren; 7 great grandchildren, and 2 faithful golden retrievers. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dick, her parents, her brother Jack Beckwith, her sister Isabel Goode, and 2 grandsons and one granddaughter. Plans for a memorial gathering are pending. The family requests, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made in Fran’s memory to The Black Butte School Foundation - Frank Dale Memorial Scholarship, PO Box 150, Camp Sherman, OR 97730; Friends of the Metolius, PO Box 101, Camp Sherman, OR 97730; and SVDP - Catherine’s Center, 50 North B Street, San Mateo, CA 94401; Guild for Infant Survival of Orange County, P.O.

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.

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.

Editorial Hard school lessons Paly sexual harassment case raises host of issues, concerns


he revelation that former Palo Alto High School Principal Phil Winston engaged in “unprofessional conduct and unsatisfactory performance” in his dealings with both students and colleagues is profoundly sad and disappointing. Winston, considered a rising star in the district when he was appointed principal in 2010, was generally well-liked by students and parents, and initially, by the staff at Paly as well. Coming on the heels of Jacqueline McEvoy, who was hired by Superintendent Kevin Skelly to assert more discipline and control over a school that had drifted toward students (and some parents) resisting rules and accountability for their behavior, Winston was supposed to be the young, ambitious administrator that could successfully bridge teacher and student needs and calm the animosity that had developed toward McEvoy’s perceived overly hard edge and weak communication skills. Paly staff did not want another short-lived and controversial administrator leading it, so they rallied around Winston. These sincere efforts to support him, in spite of his inexperience, make his betrayal of trust all the more difficult for staff, students and parents. It is important to not allow the distasteful details of Winston’s demise to distract from the important issues they raise, including the school culture, the adequacy of the district’s response and the troublesome teacher discipline environment in California. As Superintendent Skelly clearly stated and the investigation found, Phil Winston’s behavior was totally unacceptable. Over an extended period of time, he engaged in behavior that would have had him fired for sexual harassment in most organizations. To their credit, district administrators responded immediately when the initial staff complainant came forward, substantiated most of the claims through a brief investigation, and imposed what Skelly says were the most serious consequences possible given the rules and procedures of the California Education Code. That is hard lesson number one: In California, the law makes it so expensive and onerous to terminate a credentialed teacher that most districts decide not to even try. There are countless examples of school boards, on the advice of their attorneys, opting to reassign problem teachers rather than go through the long and complex termination process. In this case, the district gave Winston the mandated “45-90”-day notice, but under the law, it is unlikely that he will face further disciplinary action unless he repeats the behavior he has been warned about. How nice it would be to see, as one outcome of this case, our district, including its teachers, advocating for reform of this system. While the district’s own investigation went far enough to establish Winston’s wrong-doing, it would have been better advised to have had a more thorough outside independent investigation done and a written report prepared that could then have been publicly released at the time. The secrecy surrounding this case created rumors and speculation, and the district limited its investigation to the personnel issues. The effects on students and the staff, what arguably should be the most important concern, went unaddressed. Another important lesson is the fear of retaliation that exists among our teaching professionals. It is a serious problem when staff members at our schools do not feel safe coming forward with their concerns about what is happening on their campuses. That was the clear message from the staff members who put their fears aside to reveal what they had experienced, witnessed or heard about on the Paly campus. If this case has shown anything, it is that there are real cultural consequences to selecting a school leader, and careful attention should be paid to whether a school culture is consistent with district and community values. At Paly, there were lots of troubling signs, yet almost no one chose to risk retaliation and raise concerns to district administrators. By all signs, Paly’s new principal, Kim Diorio, is tackling these issues head-on. She has established clear behavioral expectations, is holding students accountable and has put school climate issues at the top of her agenda. When tested on her first day in August by student streakers, she quickly suspended them and sent a strong message to the entire Paly community that this behavior creates a hostile and unsafe school environment that will not be tolerated. Her January appointment of teacher Eric Bloom as a teacher-onspecial-assignment to work on improving the school culture at Paly was another positive move. Under Diorio’s leadership, Paly appears to be engaged in healthy self-reflection on these tough issues. We hope the district recognizes the value in doing the same, and in providing greater supports to their school staffs.

Spectrum Editorials, letters and opinions

Resign from ABAG Editor, I have long been a supporter of regional problem-solving and participation and thought that every local city should belong to the Association of Bay Area Governments. However, seeing that ABAG has assigned to our city a new goal of 2,179 new housing units, in a city which is already jammed (think of the high-rise fortresses along Alma), I would be willing to see our city resign from ABAG, and the sooner the better. If that means cutting back on or stopping new commercial building and housing, fine. I don’t expect Palo Alto to be just as it was when I moved here decades ago, but there must be some limits. Not everyone can or should live here simply because there are jobs here. Heck, my father commuted 50 miles by train every day, and our little rural NJ town still retains its character. Sue Kemp Seale Avenue, Palo Alto

Rehabilitate Roth Editor, Yes, I’m convinced it would be appropriate to spend city funds on rehabilitation of the Roth Building. I appreciate committing civic funds to dynamic educational and cultural institutions. Public safety, potholes and parking garages have their claims on the public purse, but Palo Alto is known also for supporting invigorating institutions. City-owned buildings shelter a number of them: the Art Center, Children’s Theater, Junior Museum & Zoo, Environmental Volunteers, Avenidas, Gamble Garden, Museum of American Heritage — all these city organizations or private nonprofits operate in city-owned buildings. Right now the City of Palo Alto has a chance to boost an exciting project and benefit from improvements to another exceptional building it owns. The Palo Alto History Museum has raised over half the cost of construction to rehabilitate the Roth Building. By partnering with the Museum, the city can hasten work to restore this asset and provide — along with seismic and energy-efficiency upgrades — a community room, a restroom serving Heritage Park and a cafe. These are welcome neighborhood amenities. Once the building is ready, private funds will create a contemporary museum to exhibit our past and invite creative ways to think about our future. Innovation has fueled Palo Alto since its earliest days. Today there is great interest in why this area sparks invention. Though technological frontiers

are today’s magnets, Palo Altans historically have generated many and varied advancements. Radio engineering had an early start in town. Palo Alto Clinic doctors built the Roth Building when theirs was a pioneering multi-specialty group medical practice. The foundational period of the Grateful Dead happened here. Musicians and artists have long joined engineers, educators, researchers and imaginative investors in fueling our city’s vibrant character. Telling our stories, lighting imaginations: a restored Roth Building can make it happen. Let’s do it! Barbara Wallace Secretary to the board, Palo Alto History Museum Lincoln Avenue, Palo Alto

History of innovation Editor, I strongly support the City’s effort to contribute to the rehab of the Roth Building: the original Birge Clark designed Palo

Alto Medical Clinic. A substantial amount of money has been raised from private donors, and it is important to have support to actually start the required seismic upgrades and renovation of the building. The plans are drawn, the lease option in place, the contractor hired and a completed building will allow the City Archives to be housed and a privately funded Palo Alto History Museum to be developed there. Palo Alto and Stanford have such a rich history of innovation, and it needs to be showcased for the current and future citizens. As the city receives new citizens and world wide visitors, it is important to educate them to the history of our unique city and to create a look into our future with an innovative and high-tech museum.

Guest Opinion

Teens learn/teach a great lesson: giving the gift of self by Carrie Manley ometimes just when you think you’ve seen the sweetest thing ever, life surprises you with something more. Just before Veterans Day last fall, I visited the Palo Alto VA Hospital Spinal Cord Injury unit to ask some of the veterans what small presents might they like for the holiday. Their modest requests included a bag of shrimp chips, several steak dinners and fresh flowers for loyal, loving wives. Generous donations from Nature’s Alley floral shop and the Fish Market restaurant made it easy to satisfy these wishes. However, when Veterans Day arrived, and it was nearly time for deliveries, there was still one veteran I kept thinking about, Mr. Matthews. During the wish-collecting visit, he and his wife had mentioned his long, deeply fulfilling career as a football coach. Lying in his hospital bed, Coach Matthews’ eyes had lit up as he recalled decades helping high school and Stanford players, in partnership with Cardinal legend Bill Walsh. Clearly, Coach Matthews had loved it all! Fourth and long, I made a last-minute call to Kori Shaw, a wonderful mom I had known at my kids’ old elementary school, and the wife of current Stanford football coach, David Shaw. I quickly explained the situation, and within minutes, Kori had gra-


ciously arranged for her husband to write a personal note to Coach Matthews. On my way to the VA for the deliveries, I swung by Stanford, where Coach Shaw’s assistant Callie Seidman was already kindly waiting for me outside, to save me time. She handed me the personal letter and a Stanford cap freshly autographed by Coach Shaw. It’s hard to put into words how happy these seemingly small tokens made Coach Matthews and his lovely wife, Rita. They beamed reading Coach Shaw’s note. When I left the room, Coach Matthews was proudly wearing his new red hat in bed. I thought it was the sweetest thing I’d ever seen. I later got a note from Mrs. Matthews saying how much the gifts and Coach Shaw’s thoughtfulness had brightened her husband’s spirits, especially in the face of on-going medical hardship. In February, I returned with Paly Senior Alex Chamberlain, and twins Millie and Max, age 6, from Walter Hays Elementary. Together, we handed out Valentine’s Day candy and carnations from Nature’s Alley. Millie and Max also gave the gift of singing “Let It Go” from the movie, “Frozen.” From room to room, they talked with each veteran, giving flowers, sweets and song. When it was time to go, I don’t know why, but I felt a sudden urge to go back and check a room that we had somehow missed. There, tucked in bed was Coach Matthews, with his wife close by. I rushed back for Alex, Millie and Max. We gave Mrs. Matthews a two-sided sheet with all the lyrics to follow along. Then, Millie and Max began to sing: “Let it go, let it go, don’t hold it back anymore. Let it go, let it go.” Two little kids singing their hearts out, what could be sweeter than that?

Later I returned to the hospital, this time with one girl and nine boys from JLS Middle School, seventh and eighth graders who wanted to help injured and sick veterans. They were some of the more than 100 JLS students taking part in an afterschool “Spread the Kindness” community service day. While my group volunteered at the VA, other students mulched trees, visited seniors, made blankets for rescue dogs waiting for adoption and much more. But before we even arrived, I was impressed by these teens. Not one of them started texting or listening to music. Nobody asked if he or she could sample the donated and tempting Rip Van Wafel cookies intended for the veterans; instead they focused on the vets, wanting to know what gifts they liked the best. I shared a lesson that now-retired VA recreational therapist Tom McCarthy had taught me: “The treats help give us a reason to walk in, but the real gift you give is yourself. Your visit is what the veterans appreciate the most.” We soon found some of the paralyzed veterans were in rooms marked “Isolation.” Our helpful VA guide, Scott Francis, explained only one or two volunteers could enter, wearing hospital gowns and gloves to minimize any risk of spreading germs. Often walking into any hospital room can feel intimidating. You don’t know what you might see. You don’t want to violate someone’s privacy. You don’t know how the patient — a stranger — might be feeling and might react. It requires a leap of faith and hope every time. So faced with “Isolation” signs, how did these young teens react? Every one of them wanted to suit up and go in — to meet someone they didn’t know, yet

someone they cared about. From the doorway, I watched as they quietly approached each bed, offering gifts, smiles and kind words of encouragement. A few minutes after one bedside visit, a veteran, battling Lou Gehrig’s disease, who had come out of surgery only hours before, softly whispered to me, “Please tell them, I am so glad they came. Please thank them for me.” Our last room brought one last surprise: Coach Matthews and his wife. With permission from our guide, this time all the students entered, and soon Coach was asking each of them about favorite sports and hobbies. I got so carried away by the wonder of it all that I told everyone about our last visit, when Millie and Max sang “Let It Go.” To my amazement, Mrs. Matthews pulled out the lyrics sheet that she had saved, and one of the students said “We can sing it too!” And that’s when nine boys and one girl together stood tall and sang, each of them willing to “let it go” to bring joy to a man who had served his country, and spent his entire civilian career serving youth: “Let it go, let it go … the past is in the past … here I stand, and here I’ll stay, let the storm rage on … the cold never bothered me any way.” At this point, I don’t know what in the world will happen the next time I go to the VA, but for now, I just want to say thanks to each child and teen, for so willingly giving of yourselves, whether it’s at the VA hospital, or at a senior center, or at a school, or really anywhere you are needed, including your own neighborhood. Each of you is a precious and beautiful gift to the world, truly the sweetest thing ever. N Carrie Manley is a Palo Alto resident and parent.

Educational resource Editor, Yes, the city council should contribute funds for the rehabilitation of the new Palo Alto History Museum. The city owns the Roth Building (site of new museum), and a public/private partnership with restoration funds coming from both the city and museum donors makes sense. I am a longtime resident of Palo Alto and a retired teacher in Sunnyvale. Both cities have rich histories, and speaking as an educator, I know what a resource the new museum will be for teachers, students and parents. I visited the Sunnyvale History Museum with my students many times. It focuses on the fascinating story of the founding family of Sunnyvale, the Murphys, and due to its focus was very beneficial to third and fifth graders. The Palo Alto History Museum promises a much broader scope and will be an asset to the education of students of all ages. We need a history museum, and I urge the council to become partners with the museum in the effort to rehabilitate the Roth Building. Margo Schmidt Addison Avenue, Palo Alto

Editor, Thank you for covering the recent gathering at City Hall to protest the Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Group protests Supreme Court decision,â&#x20AC;? April 4, p. 5). You were the only local news outlet to do so. I do wish that you could have found a bit more space for your report, however. A photo and brief caption really arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sufficient for a story that dominated national headlines. McCutcheon was not the first and certainly wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the last case to undermine campaign finance laws. Your readers would have benefited from knowing that Congresswoman Anna Eshoo thought the protest was important enough to send a representative to read a letter she wrote specifically for the gathering. Rep. Eshoo noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the long term, a Constitutional amendment is necessary to restore the power of Congress to regulate money in politics ... We must win this.â&#x20AC;? (Emphasis in the original.) All politics is local, as the old adage says. With our campaign finance laws now eviscerated, as Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in his dissent, it will be crucial for local newspapers to pay close attention to this issue.

Paly harassment ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ÊvÀœ“Ê«>}iÊx®


exhibited at Palo Alto High School was totally unacceptable, we have no reason to believe that the type of conduct that occurred there will be repeated,” Skelly said in his statement. “We will continue to monitor the situation and make sure that our goal of achieving and maintaining a safe school environment for all students and staff is met.” In an interview Skelly said, “I wouldn’t have put him (Winston) in the classroom if I thought he was a threat to kids.” He described the actions taken as “the most serious consequence we could have (imposed), given the law and given the Ed Code.” Winston declined to be interviewed for this story, but in written responses to Bowers during the investigation he offered denials or different interpretations of his behavior from those of the primary complainant and witnesses. After being notified of the district’s intent to release the documents to the Weekly, on March 19 he also submitted the following statement: “It is important to note that the statements and inferences contained in the packet lack context and are as a result highly misleading. They inaccurately represent me and my character. In addition, they do not represent my performance over time, but rather highlight a short period of time during which I was under extreme pressure, stress and had personal challenges. I am disappointed that I did not take better care of myself. Although it’s not reflected in the date of my resignation letter, I had shared with key personnel my intent to resign before these allegations were presented. I encourage you to read my responses contained in the packet.” The allegations against Winston were contained in a written report made by a Paly staff member who came forward in June, in notes of subsequent interviews with the complainant and four other staff members conducted by Bowers and Associate Superintendent Charles Young, and in an unsolicited email to Skelly apparently from a parent. Bowers said in a case like this he consults with legal counsel, conducts an investigation and seeks to substantiate the allegations through at least one “credible adult witness.” He then turns over all the information to the lawyers, who then decide what should be done, he said. The identities of the complainant and witnesses were redacted from documents released to the Weekly, and the Weekly has made further redactions in the documents it has posted online with this story to provide additional protection to these individuals. The identities were not revealed to Winston, nor was Winston shown any of the documentation until recently, Bowers said. In

Phil Winston mid-March, after the Weekly had requested the records, the district provided Winston with copies of the same materials (with identifying information redacted) a week prior to giving them to the Weekly, to allow Winston time to challenge the release of the materials, which he did not do. No students were interviewed as part of the investigation, according to Bowers, because “we had the information from the adults that overheard it, we had confirmation that these things were said.” One of the interviewed Paly staff members, however, was asked to contact a specific student to confirm a particularly graphic verbal interaction she said she had with Winston in spring 2012. According to the staff member, the girl said she, her boyfriend and Winston had been talking in the library and the boyfriend left. Winston then said to the girl, “You know how to get your boyfriend to do what you want? You need to sit on him, whip him and wrap your legs around his head.” The girl told the staff member that she thought what he said was “icky” but let it go. In his reply to the district, Winston said, “I do not remember exactly what I said, but I am absolutely confident I did not say you need to sit on his face, but rather something like, ‘Make sure you stay on him and make sure he gets

being alone with him due to his flirtatiousness and occasional unwanted hugs and neck or back rubbing. He was also said to have been dismissive of one colleague by telling her to “stop thinking like a mom” on numerous occasions. The specific student-related incidents, witnessed by or reported to staff members, included Winston allegedly asking students leaving early from a May 21 talk at Paly by Eve Ensler, playwright and author of “The Vagina Monologues,” “Hey, where are you going? This is about vaginas. Don’t you want to hear about vaginas?” In Winston’s written response to Bowers he said, “While I do not recall my exact words, I do remember saying something like ‘Why are you leaving? This is about vagina monologues.’” The Ensler talk, which included a panel of Paly journalism students, was billed as a “way to extend the conversation about ‘rape culture’ that was raised in Verde (a student magazine) last month,” according to an email to parents by journalism teacher and Verde advisor Paul Kandell. Another example cited was Winston asking a student if her “friend’s boobs hurt when she was running naked through the quad,” referring to one of the many streaking incidents that occurred on the campus in May 2013.

‘Personnel matters of this nature are always sensitive involving the rights of the employee, the rights of the staff and students and the public’s right to information, all of which requires careful balancing.’ — Kevin Skelly, PAUSD superintendent

his work done.’” (Initially Bowers had reported to Winston that the girl had stated Winston had used the words “sit on his face.”) The allegations from the adults interviewed included some as general and subjective as complaints about “sophomoric” comments, “arrested adolescent,” “stupid and ridiculous” or “erratic” behavior, but also discomfort about

Page 26ÊUÊ«ÀˆÊ££]ÊÓä£{ÊUÊ*>œÊÌœÊ7iiŽÞÊUÊÜÜÜ°*>œÌœ"˜ˆ˜i°Vœ“

Winston’s response to Bowers about the incident stated: “During brunch one day there was a group of at least 10 female streakers. I was walking through the quad as the streakers ran across the front area of the senior deck. As I made my way to the senior deck, I said, ‘Gosh, that looks painful. That must hurt their boobs.’” Winston also acknowledged

on occasion telling girls wearing shorts that “your butt cheeks are hanging out, that is not appropriate.” He said students “continually push these limits of decency and expose themselves,” and that “many staff members have consistently expressed concerns to administration about students’ body parts showing or hanging out, so this was done in support of staff with the purpose of creating a safe learning and teaching environment for all.” One staff member, who stated he or she had gotten to the point of not wanting to meet with Winston alone, recounted Winston referring to a male colleague as a “pansy” and his describing a particular student as “popular with white girls ... because of his black dong,” according to Bowers’ interview notes provided to the Weekly.

“A few minutes later he went up to a group of girls, one of whom had just gotten an extra pierce in her ear. The other girls were exclaiming over the piercing; Mr. Winston again stood close and began playing with the girl’s ear lobe and twisting various earrings, and did the same with a second girl in the group while bantering. One of the girls stepped back; Mr. Winston only moved closer and kept playing with earrings.” The parent ended the letter to Skelly: “But now that I see that Mr. Winston may return to the classrooms in which he will be alone with students, I feel an ethical responsibility to contact you to share these observations in the hope that Mr. Winston can be helped to make better choices in the interest both of students he will serve, and in respect for his own career.”

‘It is my belief that if an investigation were conducted, many staff members would add examples that have been upsetting and hurtful to them and/or resulted in an unsafe learning/working environment for the students and staff at Palo Alto High School.’ — Paly staff member complainant


he initial allegations against Winston came on June 5 from a Palo Alto High School staff member who felt a “duty to report the many incidences that have been brought to me by numerous staff members.” After a meeting with Associate Superintendent Young, who is the district’s designated uniform complaint and Title IX “compliance officer,” the complainant gave district officials a five-page memo detailing Winston’s behavior, including inappropriate touching of both staff and students, verbal sexual harassment, flirtatious behavior and creating a “hostile work environment” by not taking effective steps to stop student streaking, which had exploded during the month of May. Also, shortly after Winston resigned, Superintendent Kevin Skelly received a letter from a person who appears to be a parent dated June 24 reacting with concern to the news that Winston had requested a transfer back to the classroom. Describing two incidents a year earlier, in spring 2012, while walking with Winston on campus during the lunch hour, the parent wrote: “Phil saw an obviously distressed teen girl walking with an adult. He went up to her and told her he wished her well ... while standing close in to her, face to face, and stroking her arm up and down repeatedly from shoulder to below the elbow.

The Weekly was provided the documents in response to a Jan. 22 Public Records Act request for copies of any complaints alleging misconduct and disciplinary records pertaining to Winston and five other district employees. Under state law, such documents are separate from an employee’s personnel file and are considered public documents if the complaints are substantial in nature and pertain to a senior-level school official. The 30 pages released were redacted to protect the identities of complainants and witnesses. The documents provided included an email sent June 4 to the Paly leadership team (Winston, administrators and all of the instructional supervisors) by another staff person alarmed about student streaking and the emotional safety of students and staff on the campus. (See sidebar.) The email was sent the day after the district was notified of a “compliance review” investigation by the federal Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights into whether Paly provides a “nondiscriminatory educational environment free of sexual harassment,” and “whether it responds promptly and effectively to complaints or other notice of sexual harassment of students.” (See sidebar.) The district’s investigation of the complaints about Winston was limited to talking with the complainant and four other staff

members. No written report, other than notes of interviews, was prepared. Bowers said that Lozano, the district’s lawyer, guided the entire process, briefed the school board and prepared the Aug. 13 notification letter to Winston. School board members were briefed on the allegations by Skelly, Bowers and Lozano in a closed session in June. According to school board member Dana Tom, who was president of the board at the time, the board was also provided a copy of the documents for “review and inspection.” Winston’s move to Jordan was noted on the agenda as an information item for the Aug. 9 board meeting with an effective date of Aug. 12. In a prepared statement to the Weekly on Wednesday, Tom said the board “authorized the requested reassignment to a classroom position after thoroughly considering the circumstances, the employee’s record as a District teacher, and the employee’s legal rights. He has been successful in meeting the District’s high performance and behavioral expectation in his current teaching position.” School board president Barb Mitchell added in her own statement, “When people make mistakes, whether they are employees or students, our community expects prompt, informed and fair responses from school district officials, and this is what took place.” Skelly and Lozano both told the Weekly there was no agreement or “deal” made with Winston or the primary complainant about how the situation would be resolved. “Personnel matters of this nature are always sensitive involving the rights of the employee, the rights of the staff and students and the public’s right to information, all of which requires careful balancing,” Skelly’s prepared statement said. “We believe that in this instance all those rights were considered and protected.” In coming forward, the original Palo Alto High School staff complainant expressed great discomfort and a fear of retaliation, and conveyed similar fears of other staff members. “The information that I have known and been made aware of has caused me many sleepless nights, yet as I explained, I feared retaliation from (redacted) Phil Winston,” the memo said, explaining why he or she had not come forward earlier. “I bring this information forward as my duty to report and in hope that the district will conduct their own fair investigation on this matter. “It is my belief that if an investigation were conducted, many staff members would add examples that have been upsetting and hurtful to them and/or resulted in an unsafe learning/working environment for the students and staff at Palo Alto High School,” the memo said. “While I have great concerns

Students walk across the Paly campus. Under Principal Phil Winston’s watch, streaking was a common occurrence in the spring.

Student streaking: alarm over mixed messages Paly staff taking steps to educate students and parents on why streaking must stop


oncern over the rising incidences of streaking on the Palo Alto High School campus reached an apparent boiling point among staff members last spring, when according to one source there were streakers of both sexes every school day in May, involving more than 100 students. Streakers even entered the library, which had been a place where students had taken refuge to avoid the naked seniors. One male teacher told the Weekly that “it was so awful” that walking across campus, you’d probably hit a naked teen student toward late April and during May. “It was alarming at the end,” he said. “Teachers were all offended by it.” One day, during a lunch-time performance of an invited cultural musical group on the senior deck, student streakers got up on the deck and played on their instruments naked, the teacher said. Principal Phil Winston’s response to the increased streaking activity was seen by some teachers and staff as half-hearted and sending a mixed message, and played a significant role in complaints made against Winston to district officials. “After much reflection and discussion with many colleagues I’d like to share my concerns with this leadership team about the spate of streaking that seems to have encroached on more and more of our time and space at the end of each successive school year in the past four years,” according to an email sent on June 4 by a staff member to Winston, administrators and all instructional supervisors. Winston replied, just a week before submitting his resignation, “I agree. Next year will be different.” An unidentified staff member added, “Besides the issue of student safety, it’s a sexual harassment lawsuit waiting to happen.” “From one week to two to now a whole month..from the quad to now the library we seem to have no where that is safe for students during their precious break periods,” the author of the original email wrote. “I use that word safe because that is the word many students used when they came up to me and (redacted) and asked where they could shelter during the streaking. The fact

that students do not feel safe on the quad for almost an entire month is of great concern to me and I assume to all of you as well. Many senior students told me they have received very mixed messages about the school’s stance on streaking,” the email stated. “In my view it is a student’s right to privacy, to be safe at school that is being infringed upon by a minority of senior students who wish to indulge in what they assume is a harmless act of self expression.”

‘Quite honestly, I’m tired of having to watch naked students everyday for an entire month, (redacted) and believe this situation has created a hostile work environment on our campus.’ — Paly staff member email to colleagues The complainant who came forward with sexual harassment allegations against Winston considered the handling of the streaking problem to be emblematic of Winston’s unprofessional conduct. “Principal Winston has sent the message to the students that there are clearly little or no consequences. I’ve spoken with parents who also feel the same pressures not to speak up. Quite honestly, I’m tired of having to watch naked students everyday for an entire month, (redacted) and believe this situation has created a hostile work environment on our campus,” the complainant wrote in his or her report to district officials. Staff members told the Weekly that most teachers were reluctant to leave their classrooms during streaking season, at brunch and lunch time, for fear of encountering naked students. One longtime Paly teacher told the Weekly of the relief on campus when on her first school day as principal last August, Kim Diorio suspended two students who decided to test her by streaking.

Another teacher said that when Diorio spoke with such a clear voice, even the students who might normally be expected to defend streaking as a “tradition” did not react negatively. “We are so appreciative of this (new approach),” the teacher said. Diorio also launched an initiative in January to address school climate issues and appointed history and social sciences teacher Eric Bloom to facilitate and lead the effort as a “teacher-on-special-assignment” (TOSA). According to Bloom, his TOSA work so far has included planning for creation of a school climate committee, revising the Academic Honesty policy, preparing for Not in Our Schools Week, looking at how to improve comfort levels around reporting climate problems, and evaluating ways to obtain more data on climate issues, including, possibly, focus groups. One important goal is for the process to include a large student participation component because “students impact culture the most,” Bloom said. Principals also have a major role and ultimate responsibility, he said, as “captains of the ship.” One change needed is more awareness and communication on campus and within the community about climate issues, Bloom said. “Like our students, we are for the most part good, but we also make mistakes.” When that happens, he said, “we deal with it.” “We need to learn and heal as a result of the people who were willing to speak up,” he said. Paly may be experiencing a “band-aid moment” now, but Bloom expects positive things to come out of difficulties. “It’s not about pointing fingers,” Bloom said. “It’s a truth and reconciliation moment” and an opportunity to “take ownership and responsibility, and build the place we want.” Bloom said that “Paly is full of people doing the right thing,” and while there’s plenty to work on, there’s also lots to celebrate and good momentum for positive changes moving forward.

about Phil Winston’s general competence in his role and how this relates to our upcoming WASC (accreditation) process and the Title IX investigation ... the immediate issue that I hope to see resolved is improving the climate for women and girls on our campus.” The memo included a list of 30 staff members (redacted in the copy provided the Weekly) who had “spoken directly to me concerning Principal Winston’s inappropriate behavior and general concerns regarding his competence.” Twenty of them were noted with asterisks as having personally “witnessed sexually harassing behavior” with colleagues, themselves or students. “I have had many conversations over the last 3 years with staff members from all departments about numerous insensitive, inappropriate, and sexually harassing comments I have witnessed or others have witnessed involving our Principal, Phil Winston,” the memo stated. Records show that Young met with the Paly staff member on June 6. Young, who as the district’s compliance officer is responsible for investigating complaints about sexual harassment involving students, sent a memo the next day summarizing the meeting to Skelly, and the issue was turned over to Bowers to investigate as a personnel matter. The following day, Friday, June 7, Bowers met separately with both the complainant and Winston. On Monday, June 10, Bowers informed the complainant his or her allegations were being taken very seriously, and he began contacting witnesses to confirm them. On June 12, Bowers gave Winston a short written summary of six specific allegations about his inap-

Palo Alto High School

propriate comments to students, and said he would share it with the school board in closed session as soon as he received Winston’s response. On June 13, Winston submitted his resignation to Skelly, stating that he had made “significant sacrifices as a father, spouse, and person in order to fully and successfully fulfill my duties to the District” and that “my passion has always been the classroom, and I am thrilled about going back.” At the time, Skelly told the Weekly that Winston had “done a great job with kids and parents.” “We appreciate (Winston’s) deep dedication and strong service to our community in this role,” Skelly said. “He’s just worked really hard on the environment at the school. His smiling face on the campus, his approach to the work has been really positive.” On June 14, Winston submitted to Bowers a point-by-point rebuttal of the statements cited Principal in Bowers’ June 12 memo, Kim Diorio which contradicted much of the information provided by the complainant and witnesses, stating that his conduct had been “misinterpreted.” He also stated that “had this information been shared with me (at the time), I would have been eager to resolve any concerns or make any adjustments if necessary.” After that, the only documented action was the August letter to Winston with the formal “unprofessional conduct and unsatisfactory performance” notice, and a subsequent response from Winston. School board agendas indicate the board met in closed session on June 18 regarding an unspecified employee discipline matter, then again on Aug. 1 to appoint Kim Diorio as the new principal at Paly and on Aug. 9 about an employee discipline item. Winston took over as principal at Paly in fall 2010, after serving as an assistant principal at Gunn for three years. He immediately began putting his own imprint on the culture of the school to make it more student-centric and reversing the stricter disciplinary style of former principal Jacqueline McEvoy. Many students referred to Winston as “Chill Phil,” and teachers recalled welcoming his energy, charm and desire to create a new atmosphere on campus. While he was very popular with many students and parents, and initially viewed by staff as a “breath of fresh air,” he became increasingly isolated and alienated from the school’s staff, according to interviews with both teachers and classified staff, most of whom insisted on anonymity. Some teachers were concerned about his lax approach to student discipline, which they felt was eroding the overall climate and accountability for misbehavior, while others cited an increasing tendency toward non-communication with staff and arbitrary, unilateral actions. Other staff interviewed by the Weekly expressed a reluctance to report concerns, including fears that nothing would be done, even at the district-office level, and that speaking up would only make the situation worse. “The culture wasn’t there to support the teacher,” one teacher said. The best course often was seen as staying silent, for their own protection. Young voiced concern to the Weekly about the complainant’s and others’ expressed fear of report-

Feds investigating Paly response to sexual harassment


he federal Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is currently investigating whether Palo Alto High School responded properly when allegations of student sexual harassment or assault were reported. OCR attorneys were expected to start interviewing Paly administrators this past week and will likely want to talk with students and staff as well, according to an email sent to Paly staff. The investigation commenced June 3, shortly after articles were published in Verde, Paly’s student magazine, describing how up to nine student victims of sexual assaults had been “harassed verbally and on social media after the assaults” by other students. It was 10 days later that Paly principal Phil Winston submitted his resignation. In its notification letter to Superintendent Kevin Skelly, the OCR stated that it had received information that Paly “has not provided a prompt and equitable response to notice of peer sexual harassment, including peer harassment related to sexual assault.” The notice emphasized that the investigation is to gather the facts and is not a determination that any laws or rules were violated. Neither the district nor the Office for Civil Rights would comment on the investigation, so it is not known if it encompasses any of the allegations about former Paly principal Phil Winston. Associate Superintendent Charles Young told the Weekly that the documents containing information about the allegation regarding Winston had been provided to OCR. Under Title IX of the federal Civil Rights Act, sexual harassment of students is a prohibited form of sex discrimination. The federal law requires that if a school knows or reasonably should know about possible sexual harassment involving students, it

must promptly investigate to determine what occurred and then take appropriate steps to resolve the situation, “even if a student or his or his parent does not want to file a complaint or does not request that the school take any action on the student’s behalf.” Other employment laws, federal and state, govern allegations of discrimination (including sexual harassment) against staff.

Neither the district nor the Office for Civil Rights would comment on the investigation, so it is not known if it encompasses any of the allegations about former Paly principal Phil Winston. Sexual harassment is defined in the district’s policies (consistent with federal and state law) as including “unwanted verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature” (e.g, sexual jokes or “graphic verbal comments about an individual’s body or overly personal conversation”) that creates “an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational environment.” The district has apparently attempted at least twice to get OCR’s investigation halted. According to documents provided to the Weekly that are almost entirely redacted, last June, immediately after the investigation was launched, the district wrote a letter with the subject line, “Request for Reconsideration of Opening of Investigation.” In September, another letter was sent with the subject line “Request for Closure of Investigation.” N — Palo Alto Weekly staff

ing and retaliation. “That’s something that we take really seriously. Absolutely. We never want to cultivate a culture where people felt like they couldn’t report things and feel supported in that process. ... The district supports that, we have a legal responsibility to support it, and anybody feeling that way, we absolutely take that very seriously.” Members of Paly’s current administration team, including Principal Kim Diorio, declined to discuss Winston or the allegations made against him.

Novel is playful blend of sports and suspense by Karla Kane â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Setup Man,â&#x20AC;? by T.T. Monday; Doubleday; 262 pages; $24.95


eft-handed relief pitcher Johnny Adcock is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known in baseball terms as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;setup man.â&#x20AC;? As a ballplayer heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got one main job to do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; come in during the eighth inning and pitch until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the closerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to take over the game and get the glory. At 35 and world weary, Adcock knows his best baseball days may be behind him. Luckily, pitching just one inning (or sometimes to just one hitter) per game has left him with plenty of downtime to pursue a lucrative side career â&#x20AC;&#x201D; private investigating. So goes the clever premise of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Setup Man,â&#x20AC;? the new novel by South Bay author (and Palo Alto Online blogger) T.T. Monday. Though Adcock, a major leaguer, is well paid, moonlighting as a sporty Sherlock helps him stave off boredom while insuring plenty of funding to support himself, his ex-wife and his teenage daughter once his days on the diamond are through. Like any good detective (or athlete), though, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mainly in it for the love of the game. His clientele consists only of other baseball players and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built up quite a reputation, generally taking cases of suspected spousal infidelity and other domestic issues. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s against the rules, management turns a blind eye to his extracurricular work. When one of his teammates hires him to find out whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been blackmailing his wife with naughty video footage, Adcock is thrown a metaphorical curveball and wades into a much deeper case than heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expecting, rife with murders, Mexican prostitution rings, Los Angeles pornographers and more. The action in the novel takes place, alternately, on the field/in the clubhouse and

off on investigative adventures. As in most P.I. thrillers, Adcock encounters femmes fatale, mentors, nemeses and even a keen would-be sidekick in an earnest young catcher just called up from the minors. The mystery plot is OK and keeps the reader sufficiently intrigued, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the baseball angle that gives the book its best moments. Monday clearly loves the sport and peppers â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Setup Manâ&#x20AC;? with baseball tidbits that die-hard fans will appreciate and rookies will learn from. Adcock is in the bullpen of the fictional â&#x20AC;&#x153;San Jose Bay Dogs,â&#x20AC;? although all the other teams in the book are genuine MLB franchises. Thanks to the San Jose-based setting, the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got plentiful Bay Area references, which is always fun for local readers. A crucial incident takes place out near Woodside, for example, and Adcock even relaxes at a fancy Palo Alto spa called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watercourse Om.â&#x20AC;? This page-turner is definitely for adult readers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; risquĂŠ situations, violence and graphic language

People of Note bring music into local schools by Nick Veronin


confidence, improves discipline and focus, and teaches children how to work together. In addition to helping kids do better in subjects like math and science, music and the arts also breeds creativity. Children who are exposed to arts and music from an early age can learn to look at the world in new and interesting ways, Pelissero said. Music, she added, has the ability to â&#x20AC;&#x153;open up (childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) minds.â&#x20AC;? Anna Vissers, the parent of a third-grader who took part in an April 6 concert, co-hosted by People of Note, echoed Pelissero. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I truly believe art, in any kind of form, really opens their hearts,â&#x20AC;? Vissers said, speaking about the importance of music in her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education. Vissersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter, Stella, is currently attending Montclaire Elementary School in Los Altos, and was one of 24 children who performed for a live audience at the recent concert, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Pretty ­VÂ&#x153;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x152;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x2022;i`Ă&#x160;Â&#x153;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x160;Â&#x2DC;iĂ?Ă&#x152;Ă&#x160;ÂŤ>}iÂŽ

Planet,” held at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto. Stella and her peers served as the backup choir for Grammy award-winning musician Tom Chapin. People of Note got its start in the mid-’80s as a fundraising arm of Music for Minors — the San Carlos-based organization, which brings musical instruction to elementary schools all over the Bay Area. Music for Minors was originally founded in response to cuts in education funding, which came as a result of overall budget reductions in the wake of Proposition 13. Those cuts hit poorer elementary schools especially hard, according to Pelissero. In 2002, People of Note broke off from Music for Minors. Though the two organizations continue to collaborate, People of Note focuses primarily on producing educational children’s concerts, musical assemblies and music-based workshops for kids,

in which a professional musician performs. Much of their work is aimed at children attending underfunded and struggling schools. “We believe that all children should be able to have access to live music,” Pelissero said. While Music for Minors docents often teach the children to play instruments and sing songs, People of Note focuses on producing concerts, so that children can take in high-quality music and performance, which helps to reinforce the work of Music for Minors. “If you can bring an artist into a school — if they (the children) can actually see somebody singing or playing a guitar — they can say, ‘Oh, that’s fun! Maybe we could do that.’” By way of example, Pelissero recalled a young boy she saw in the audience at the April 6 concert. The child was using his hands to “conduct” the show. After the final song, Pelissero talked to the boy’s mother, who told her that the youngster has plans to be

a conductor when he grows up. “Those are the kinds of things that make me so excited to work with children,” Pelissero said. Such a statement would likely please Chapin, as well. According to the children’s songwriter, People of Note and other similar organizations are doing extremely important work. Since the passage of Prop. 13, elementary schools have seen their music programs pared back, he observed. In poorer communities, music and arts programs have been eliminated entirely. That’s where organizations like People of Note and Music for

Minors are really a “big deal,” he said. “I truly believe that the arts and music are hugely important in our lives,” Chapin said after his concert at the Palo Alto JCC. For starters, the children in the audience and the kids from Montclaire Elementary who joined him on stage are the future: “It’s the audience that is going to keep the arts alive as they grow up,” the multi-instrumentalist said. Getting children involved in the arts is not just important for the survival of the arts, Chapin said. He believes it is important for a strong economy, as it teach-

es children how to be creative and “think outside the box.” Pelissero agreed. Through Music for Minors and the events organized by People of Note, Pelissero said she hopes that children are learning to express themselves and think creatively. “I think we need more of that — especially in Silicon Valley, where everyone is so over-booked and into making the new app,” she said. “Let’s take a step back and express ourselves in some other ways.” N Arts & Entertainment Editor Nick Veronin can be emailed at

Stage Sherlock send up In the spirit of their 2011 production of “The 39 Steps” — an on-stage send up of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 thriller — TheatreWorks Silicon Valley is currently staging a satirical take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s third Sherlock Holmes novel, “The Hound of The Baskervilles,” a tale of “an ancient family curse, a spectral hound, a deranged killer and a pair of well-known sleuths.” TheatreWorks Artistic Director Robert Kelly says that if “The 39 Steps” is any indication of what local audiences appreciate, “The Hound” is sure to please as well (“39” was one of the company’s highest selling shows to date).

A small, unassuming whisk broom is one of the most arresting images on display at Roger Spinti’s exhibit, “Rise Again,” currently showing in the Keeble & Shuchat Select Gallery. The picture draws its power from its simplicity and through context. “Rise Again,” is a collection of mostly color photographs taken when Spinti visited areas of the Philippines, which were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan late last year. Coming upon the tiny broom, after taking in so many images of destruction, really drives home the seemingly in- A Filipino man waves at surmountable task the camera from a broken the people living in balcony after Typhoon the hardest-hit areas Haiyan. have before them. “It kind of symbolized what was being done while we were there — cleaning up,” Milpitas resident Spinti says of his visit, which he made with his partner, a registered nurse working with the aid organization Relief International and Kaiser Permanente. Yet, while the reconstruction effort seemed daunting to Spinti, and although many of the people he met had lost almost everything they owned, he says a spirit of hope and resilience permeated the region. “That was the thing that amazed me the most,” he said. “Everyone there seemed very good-natured.” Spinti captures this enduring spirit with photos of locals going about their daily lives — weighing seafood at an open-air market, children playing and smiling, a man giving a neighbor a haircut on the beach. The photographer says he plans to donate all of the money raised through the sale of limited-edition prints to aid organizations working in the region. The gallery is located on the second floor of the Keeble and Shuchat Photography store at 290 S. California Ave., in Palo Alto. The exhibition is free, open to the public during store hours, and is scheduled to run through May 20. A reception is schedule for April 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. Call 650-327-8996 or visit for more information.

The play “makes fun of itself, while making fun of our obsession with Holmes and Watson.” “The Hound of the Baskervilles” runs Tuesday through Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, located at 500 Castro St. Tickets range from $19 to $73.

Immersed in misery Stanford University’s student-run theater company is on a mission to take audiences back in time. The Ram’s Head Theatrical Society is staging an “immersive” showing of “Les Miserables,” which begins before theatergoers even enter the main room of Memorial Auditorium. According to Sammi Cannold, director of the production, those who attend will be transported back to 1860s France — around the time the operatic adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel was first staged. The theater will be decked out with flowing cloth, and guests will be ushered into a candle-lit arcade before and after the show and during intermission. While there, 16 actors dressed in period costumes will meander about discussing the political and artistic topics of the day, as well as sharing gossip about their bourgeois peers, including Claude Monet, Richard Wagner and the man of the hour, Victor Hugo. The actors will also sit in the audience for the duration of each performance. To further drive home the time warp, Cannold says the audience will take in a “particularly spectacular version of the show.” The mid-19th-century in France was “a real period of opulence, political turmoil and social changes.” Aside from the stage lighting, Cannold said the company is attempting to present the show in the same manner it would have been presented at the time. That means a “large cast of 34, complete orchestra of 22, grandeur, lavish designs, and focus on spectacle,” according to the production’s press release. Cannold says the experience will be “immersive, but not interactive.” Theatergoers won’t be able to engage with the period characters milling about. But that’s justified, she explains. “The bourgeois of that time wouldn’t have talked to the commoners.” “Les Miserables” runs April 11-12, and April 1719 at Memorial Auditorium, located at 551 Serra Mall, Stanford. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $20. For more information, go to musical. N — Nick Veronin

Eating Out The cocktail craftsman Lure + Till’s Carlos Yturria creates cocktails with Palo Alto in mind


construction at Michelin-starred Range, which opened in the Mission in 2005. “From then on it just kind of took off,” he said, “but along the way it was just about educating myself as much as I possibly could.” Fast-forward to downtown Palo Alto in 2014, where he ended up after working with the restaurant’s chef, Patrick Kelley, at various San Francisco restaurants. He said he was also drawn by the opportunity to shape his own drink program in a burgeoning food-and-drink scene. “I’ve been screaming ‘Palo Alto’ since, like, 2003,” he said. “I think a lot of people are on their way here, for sure.” Currently, Lure + Till offers 10 cocktails, all $10 or $12. There’s the more traditional, like a rum old-fashioned, and the more inventive, like the Bright Idea, a vivid, fuchsia-colored drink made with mezcal (a smokier tequila made from the slow-roasted hearts of agave plants), a dash of absinthe, fuchsia-colored prickly pear, lemon and agave nectar. There’s also the P.D., short for pink drink, which doesn’t give it much credit. The drink mixes Smirnoff vodka with lemon juice and rhubarb that Yturria reduces in Riesling wine and supplements with vanilla bean. One of the menu’s “spirit-onspirit” drinks is the Steinberg Sting: gin, a French vermouth, Benedictine and orange bitters. It’s named after Rob Steinberg, the architect who designed Epiphany Hotel and whose alcohol of choice is gin, Yturria said. Though the seasonal, thoughtful cocktail menu might be somewhat novel for the Palo Alto scene, Yturria said he’s not trying to “reinvent the wheel” and doesn’t want the menu to be “super esoteric.” He also keeps food in mind, developing each cocktail like an aperitif, with the goal that it won’t take away from the taste of the chef’s dishes. Yturria also crafted the restaurant’s beer and wine lineup, with a range of regions featured by the glass (California, Spain, Australia, France) and lots of locals on tap, including Palo Alto Brewing’s Hoppy Ending pale ale and the classic Bay Area brew Anchor Steam. There are also seven beers by the bottle, from Abita Brewing Light and a Lagunitas IPA to a red ale from Belgium and an oatmeal stout from Boonville’s Anderson Valley Brewing.

But don’t get attached to any of these libations, because the menus will be constantly changing, Yturria said. He’s already got some spring ingredient-driven drinks in the works, like bourbon mixed with lemon juice and a strawberryblack pepper shrub (pickled strawberries, black pepper and balsamic vinegar). “We’ll do some gin, some cherries, some ginger beer and lime,” he mused about another forthcoming drink. “We’ll leave (the cherries) in the glass so you can see the fruit float; you can see that it’s fresh fruit. Especially with the patio here at Lure + Till — oh my goodness, it’s perfect.” N


by Elena Kadvany f you find yourself thirsty in downtown Palo Alto, you might wander into the Epiphany Hotel’s restaurant, Lure + Till, and order the Peninsula Punch, made with Kappa pisco, lemon juice, pineapple and basil. You might ask beverage director Carlos Yturria to tell you about Kappa pisco, a Chilean grape brandy he helped Grand Marnier develop a few years ago, and you’ll get a passionate earful of the history of the South American alcohol. “It’s not my job to educate people, but I do like a little history,” Yturria said. Pisco was developed by Spanish conquistadors who planted quebranta grapes in Peru and Chile in the 16th century. The liquor eventually made its way to North America, and Duncan Nicol at the Bank Exchange Saloon on Montgomery Street in San Francisco reportedly inventing the legendary “pisco punch” by mixing the South American brandy with pineapple, lime juice, sugar, gum arabic and distilled water, to the great delight of thirsty 19th-century San Franciscans. Talking to Yturria, it becomes clear that he’s passionate about cocktails — the way a chef is about food — and has put uncommon thought into Lure + Till’s cocktail offerings, a rarity in Palo Alto. Yturria comes to the Peninsula with a wealth of San Francisco bar experience. The South Texas native first started bar-backing when he was 17 years old and moved to San Francisco soon thereafter. In 1999, at age 21, he was working at the Starlight Room in the Sir Francis Drake Hotel; he also worked at Bacar, a wine-driven restaurant that opened in the city in 2000. He recalls that he didn’t know much about alcohol, wine or food at the time — “Gosh, I’m 21 years old. What do I know?” — but does remember tasting one wine in particular, a Spanish white from the Basque region called txakolina, that “blew his mind.” “Then all I wanted to do was learn about food and wine,” he said. “So I just consumed myself with it.” The next few projects he took on were helping to literally build bars — he helped build the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant at the Ferry Building; he cut the marble used to build the bar at Italian restaurant and wine bar A16; he did

Tidbits by Elena Kadvany

ZIBIBBO SHUTTERS ... Longtime Palo Alto restaurant Zibibbo has shuttered after 17 years, owner Rowena Wu confirmed Wednesday. “Zibibbo has closed for good,” she said, refusing to comment further. Jose Sandoval, a San Jose resident who’s been a cook at the restaurant for five years, said he was told last Friday that the restaurant was closing. He said the restaurant filled 80 reservations that night and had 85 more on Saturday, but those were canceled. The upscale Mediterranean restaurant, housed in a 12,000-square-foot yellow Victorian house at 430 Kipling St., opened in 1997. The huge space, with several dining rooms, actually spans from Kipling to Waverley Street another block over. Zibibbo is the name of a grape used in Italy’s regional dessert wines. A Weekly review from the year it opened hailed the restaurant as setting a “new standard for dining in downtown Palo Alto.” It mentioned plates like dried fruit and Swiss chard fritters, fresh seafood platters, pork tenderloin, sand dabs, half ears of corn with red pepper butter served standing upright, “grilled husks and all.” A June

2010 review revisiting the restaurant noted that Zibibbo had won the Wine Spectator magazine’s prestigious Best of Award of Excellence, the second of three tiers offered by the magazine that is bestowed on restaurants with wine lists that offer 400 or more selections, “along with superior presentation, and display either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions,” the magazine’s website says. The Palo Alto restaurant was the sister restaurant to Wu’s Restaurant LuLu in San Francisco, which is still open. ALL HAIL PIZZERIA DELFINA ... San Francisco’s beloved Pizzeria Delfina will be opening its Palo Alto doors this Sunday, April 13, in the former Empire Tap Room space at 651 Emerson St. The first week or so will be lunch only, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The menu changes daily, but expect to see antipasti like fresh-stretched mozzarella and Belfiore buratta with arugula, crostini and olive oil; Monterrey Bay sardines; veggies like spicy cauliflower with garlic, capers, bread-

crumbs and Calabrian chiles; fried spring onions with aioli. The pies are the same as the pizza empire’s other three locations (two pizzerias in San Francisco and one in Burlingame) — fans might recognize the panna (tomato sauce, cream, basil and shaved parmigiano) or the salsiccia (housemade fennel sausage, tomato, bell peppers, onions and mozzarella). Other dishes include meatballs, mussels and pastas. Dessert comes in the form of housemade gelato, either by itself, as an affogato, in a cone, sandwiched between brioche buns or in an amarena cherry sundae. The company’s head bartender, Alex Phillips, has put together a craft cocktail menu with about seven drinks, mostly variations on Italian standards, such as the Negroni (gin, vermouth and bitters, traditionally Campari). The wine list offers about 25 to 30 options with both Italian and California wines, an expansion from other Delfina locations. Owner Craig Stoll said everything — the food, wine, cocktails — is based on the Delfina vision: recreating Italy through the refractory lens of the Bay Area. Locals might not recognize the revamped Empire Tap Room space — dark wood has been replaced with light, plus one white and one bright blue-tiled wall — but underneath blue seat cushions at some of the indoor tables is hiding wood, re-purposed from the Palo Alto mainstay’s bar tops.

Movies "*  -

Draft Day -(Century 20) It says something about the culture that the latest American sports-themed movie has almost nothing to do with game play and everything to do with wheeling and dealing: dealmaking itself has become a sport worthy of analysis. And thus the â&#x20AC;&#x153;art of the dealâ&#x20AC;? fantasy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Draft Dayâ&#x20AC;? will probably appeal strongly to both football fans and selfstyled board-room geniuses, in no small part because it panders so. One hopes the NFL paid ample promotional consideration for this feature-length salute to the importance of NFL football. Beginning thirteen hours before the NFL Draft, the picture concerns one Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner), general manager of the basementdwelling Cleveland Browns. The fiftysomething exec can feel the heat: his headâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the chopping block of team owner Anthony Molina (Frank Langella); the die-hard, hopeful fans are clamoring for change; Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, a legendary Browns coach, has just passed away, leaving Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother (Ellen Burstyn) on edge; and Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downlow office girlfriend, in-house lawyer Ali (Jennifer Garner), has just announced her pregnancy, pushing the point of their relationship status. But Sonny, Sonny, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our man; if he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it, no one can. Like a coach, Sonny has to read the field, ponder his options, and make big offensive and defensive calls while keeping up the morale of his team: Molina, the current QB (Tom Welling), and the actual coaching staff (as head coach, Denis Leary lends his brand of a-hole bite). And then there are the college prospects in play, including family man Vontae Mack (Chadwick Boseman of â&#x20AC;&#x153;42â&#x20AC;?), Browns legacy Ray Jennings (Ar-

ian Foster, playing son to Terry Crews), and presumptive top pick Bo Callahan (Josh Pence). As per sports-movie formula, Sonny takes plenty of early hits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; giving up deal points from a place of palpable desperation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but somehow you just know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come up a winner. The predictability in the air saps â&#x20AC;&#x153;Draft Dayâ&#x20AC;? of much of its tension for much of its run time, especially as screenwriters Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph (a Pulitzer finalist for his play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zooâ&#x20AC;?) early on establish a key piece of information that they and Sonny inexplicably shelve until closer to the climax. The two-stage climax of the Brownsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; draft pick and its immediate aftermath finally kicks the picture into gear, but by then the audience might feel well and truly played. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Draft Dayâ&#x20AC;? amounts to a corporate training film full of Trump-card koans: a prominent sign on Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office wall offers the Sun Tzu wisdom â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every battle is won before it is ever fought,â&#x20AC;? Sonny spouts his own hard-earned white-guy wisdom (â&#x20AC;&#x153;A man steps upâ&#x20AC;?), and the story is a monument to putting character first and always, always trusting your gut. Garner, eighteen years Costnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior, is around mostly to reassert his virility and his righteousness, purring lines like â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see things other people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that matters is what you think.â&#x20AC;? Director Ivan Reitman (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghostbustersâ&#x20AC;?) applies some showy splitscreen stylings to try to liven up the proceedings, and he certainly knows how to maximize, with timing, a choice comic swear. And yes, Costner remains a reassuringly steady presence. But this combo of â&#x20AC;&#x153;inside footballâ&#x20AC;? and Capra-corn fable of being oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own man in the face of total opposition will leave

Rio 2 -(Century 20) Parents dragged to the movies by wee ones know the sensation well: going off to some mental â&#x20AC;&#x153;happy placeâ&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even money that most post-pubescents will have that mind-drift sensation sometime deep into the samba-saturated sequel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rio 2.â&#x20AC;? The 2011 adventure â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rioâ&#x20AC;? was pretty generic to begin with, and the follow-up doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fly far from the nest. Neurotic Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), his blinkered wife Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their brood of youngsters have settled comfortably into the domesticity of the Blu Bird Sanctuary in Rio de Janeiro. But when their benefactors TË&#x2122;lio (Rodrigo Santoro) and Linda (Leslie Mann) discover evidence that Bluâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family may not be the only macaws of their kind in existence, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to the wild blue yonder of the Amazon in search of a flock hiding out in the depths of the rainforest. Turns out that flock does exist, and includes Jewelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father Eduardo (Andy Garcia, well cast) and aunt (Rita Moreno). Urban-outfitted Blu now faces the hard sell of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ways of the jungle,â&#x20AC;? a lifestyle quickly embraced by the wife and kids. Repeating the (condescending) mantra â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy wife, happy life,â&#x20AC;? and fretting in the face of tough Eduardo and preening Roberto (Bruno Mars), Blu tries hard to tamp down a fresh inferiority complex and get with the program. Busying up the plot are the complications of evil, encroaching clear-cutters and flightless cockatoo Nigel (Jemaine Clement of musical duo Flight of the Conchords), the latter back to get revenge on Blu. As if that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, birdbrains Nico (Jamie Foxx) and Pedro (Will i Am) are making preparations for

MOVIE MINIS â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Carnival show,â&#x20AC;? necessitating a series of amusing call-of-the-wild auditions. In story terms, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all pretty much boilerplate at best and unpleasant at worst: Blu gets lectured and punished for his selfish but also legitimate feelings of hesitancy about upheaving his city life (and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t this picture called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rio 2,â&#x20AC;? after all?).

Clement again gets a big number (though a disappointing parody version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Will Surviveâ&#x20AC;?), but the MVP award of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rio 2â&#x20AC;? goes to Kristin Chenoweth as poisonous tree frog Gabi. Beside being arguably the most amusingly animated character, Gabi delivers a vocally virtuosic amorous aria, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poisonous Love,â&#x20AC;? that is the pictureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands-down highlight. Maybe instead of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rio 3,â&#x20AC;? Gabi and Nigel should get their own spinoff, as the rest here â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for all its visual and musical liveliness â&#x20AC;&#x201D; resembles an early remark from that canary Nico: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not inspired.â&#x20AC;? Rated G. One hour, forty-one minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peter Canavese

Captain America: The Winter Soldier --1/2 Give this to the films of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marvel Cinematic Universeâ&#x20AC;?: they have a consistency of quality. Marvel may never produce a film as great as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dark Knight,â&#x20AC;? but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never sink to a low like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Batman and Robinâ&#x20AC;? either. And there we have â&#x20AC;&#x153;Captain America: The Winter Soldier,â&#x20AC;? a perfectly creditable comic-book adventure that likewise feels naggingly rote. Sequel to both 2011â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Captain America: The First Avengerâ&#x20AC;? and 2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Avengers,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Winter Soldierâ&#x20AC;? follows thawed-out WWII-era hero Steve Rogers (stalwart Chris Evans) as he deals with 21st-century breakdowns of all varieties. On the surface, this sequel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; directed by franchise newcomers Anthony and Joe Russo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; takes a bold approach by playing that old spy-movie game â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who Do You Trust?â&#x20AC;? with the players in espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. When (too-) mysterious assassin the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) targets S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Captain America finds himself a fugitive from his government masters, including World Security Council insider Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford). Somewhat reluctantly, Rogers teams up with kick-ass S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), aka Black Widow, and their new Army vet buddy Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie). Since this is a Marvel movie, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of close combat and big-scale action, the heavy-metal mayhem culminating in a climactic action sequence involving the latest wave of S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarriers. Though â&#x20AC;&#x153;Captain America: The Winter Soldierâ&#x20AC;? never strays far from preposterousness, the pictureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real-world implications give its high-flying action at least a tug of gravity. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence, gunplay and action throughout. Two hours, sixteen minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

The Raid 2 --1/2 Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a moment in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Raid 2â&#x20AC;? when a goon begs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please have mercy,â&#x20AC;? and his assailant responds by raising his pickax. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m half-joking when I say that if you gleefully identify with the assailant in that scene, this is the movie for you. Others may feel more like the goon. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because this stylish sequel to 2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Raid: Redemptionâ&#x20AC;? clocks in at 150 minutes, many of them devoted to orgiastic violence. The picture reunites writer-director Gareth Evans and his impressive Indonesian Martial Arts star Iko Uwais where they left off: having fought his way through and out of a fifteen-story apartment building full of gangsters, Jakarta cop Rama (Uwais) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offered a vacation. Instead, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s told, by the head of the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-corruption task force, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act fast, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be gone within a week. Your family too.â&#x20AC;? Rama commits to a deep-cover infiltration of a crime familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organization, starting with a prison term that stretches to four years as he proves his bona fides to the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prodigal son Uco (Arifin Putra). Once on the outside, life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any less dangerous for Rama as he lives a lie in pursuit of the truth about corrupt cops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Raid 2â&#x20AC;? has style to spare in its bone-crunching, close-up and at times close-quarter fights, and its high-octane urban demolition derbies. In plot and character terms, Evans canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compete with more or less obvious influences like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oldboyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Infernal Affairs,â&#x20AC;? but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly no slouch in the sadism department, making his films in some ways exhilarating but also wearying, for better and worse. Rated R for crude and sexual content, language and brief nudity. Two hours, thirty minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.C.

Freedom Summer b l o o d c e n t e r. s t a n f o r d . e d u

â&#x20AC;&#x153;THRILLING! THE WOW FACTOR IS OFF THE CHARTS!â&#x20AC;? -Peter Travers




-The San Francisco Chronicle

This year marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most consequential moments in the history of the US Civil Rights Movement. In June 1964, more than a thousand college-aged, primarily white, Northerners joined thousands of mostly black civil rights workers in Mississippi and Louisiana in a massive drive to register African-American voters. Over the ten weeks of the project, the volunteers were victims of random shootings, more than 1,600 arrests, 80 serious beatings, and four deaths. In spite of the violence, Freedom Summer volunteers taught in thirty-eight â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freedom Schools,â&#x20AC;? and assisted the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP). This event brings together four committed activists and scholars, some of whom were volunteers, and others who have studied and written extensively about Freedom Summer. Join us for a program that honors a defining moment in our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noblest struggle.

Bad Words --1/2 In the hands of actor Jason Bateman, in his directing debut, “Bad Words” is a diverting enough outing, one that’s disposable but enjoyable. Bateman plays 40-year-old Guy Trilby, who sets aside his job of proofreading product warranties to pursue a mission of Ahab-level obsessiveness. Guy takes advantage of a loophole to compete in spelling bees, taking it all the way to the annual, national “Golden Quill.” He 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, Guy also picks fights with his bemused young competitors, shamelessly intimidating them out of his way. That kind of behavior cannot deter sunny 10-year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), an adorable nerd 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. The predictability of these shock tactics, as well as Guy’s race-baiting, makes much of “Bad Words” more impressively nasty than it is funny. Worse, “Bad Words” doesn’t seem to know what to do with itself once it gets where it’s going. Yet, it’s hard to throw on the trash heap. Because Jason Bateman. As Guy, he wears a haughty expression and a lifted chin to cultivate an imperious, “back off” air, and as an actor-director, Bateman knows how to get and select the best moments from 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. — P.C.

ing in the neighborhood for 10 years,” Betty said. “In summer 2013 we returned because we just missed it so much.”

“The location and its people are just amazing,” echoed Amelia Stone, a stay-at-home mother of two who also lives in the neighborhood. “We have a lot of kids and grandparents here.” Stone said that in Charleston Gardens, everyone is looking out for each other and that people are very caring and supportive in this suburban-feel area. These are some of the reasons why people love Charleston Gardens. The neighborhood is its own quiet little world enclosed by East Charleston, Middlefield and San Antonio roads. Residents, however, value its proximity to the freeway as well as shopping possibilities

within five minutes of walking (Charleston Shopping Center) or driving (Costco and Target). All of this appealed to Aaron Lee and his family, who moved to Palo Alto from San Francisco in August 2013. With two children in elementary school, he said that the family was attracted to the area’s excellent schools and their diverse student bodies. Peter Squire, who moved to Palo Alto in 1982, said Charleston Gardens has been home to a few local notables: Former San Francisco 49ers legend Bill Walsh owned a rental house there, which he made available for his football players.

And just across the street from Squire’s home, he said that Yahoo founder Charles Yang developed software in a small mother-in-law cottage in the back of the house. Today, the neighborhood is characterized by a mixture of seniors and younger families. The Krahenbuhls said that “it changed for the better,” referring to a healthier age mix of old and young tenants.

this provides a place for neighbors to both connect and learn about events. One of these events is an annual block party that usually takes place on Seminole Way; the whole street is blocked off for the party. The Lee family

East Palo Alto participated in their first block party in September 2013 and said they appreciated it, as they did not have similar events in San Francisco.

Garden Tips

Modifying your living canvas — one step at a time by Jack McKinnon


give my clients homework. Why? Because of Johannes Vermeer. Ever since I saw “The Lacemaker” painting at the Louvre in Paris I felt I had a lifetime of homework to do. Vermeer knew how to see what most artists of his time were not able to yet. As appreciation of his work became more focused and evaluated by experts, more and more was revealed about his techniques of painting his subjects (mostly women). Not only was he learning new ways to paint he was teaching the world how to look and see. This is what I am trying to do in the garden. I am learning to see what gardeners are doing differently and in more effective ways and passing that information on to my clients and to you, readers of this column. What we all get to do is to pay close attention and do our homework. Coco Chanel was like this, too. Coco (originally Gabrielle) wanted to make hats differently than the ones women were wearing in France. The flamboyance and wide brims seemed too much for her. As she tried new creations and designs the style caught on. She later became famous for her simple but very stylish haute couture. In landscape design the possibilities are infinite. Rules are just rules until you know them and then you can try to design your garden any way you want. The patterns of most gardens are going to change in time, why not instigate change and take a risk? Put waterneeding plants in your drought-tolerant garden? Or put a succulent in your lawn. How would that look? How

about having to look over a hedge in order to see a colorful ground cover like Erigeron (wild daisies)? This month’s tips will hopefully get you started on creatively modifying your living canvas, changing its wardrobe and maybe even shocking a culture into the next big trend. 1. Change one thing in your garden or planting configuration each week. Pull something out and move it, or plant something new and see who notices it first. 2. Check out a new way to be in the garden. Summer is coming; try making a place to lounge using a material you have never seen in a garden before. Recycled materials work great for this because if it doesn’t work or

The patterns of most gardens are going to change in time, why not instigate change and take a risk? your housemates want to evict you, it can be recycled. 3. Try a color pattern change. Go to a nursery and buy six packs of annual flowers of contrasting or complementing colors and see what kind of vibration they set up in your yard. Don’t plant them at first, just move them around on the ground and see what it looks like. When you intuitively like a particular pattern, plant them there. 4. Try watering with a shot glass. Try watering with the hose open full blast. See what the difference is in how the plants respond.

5. Juan and Mercedes have had the Ladera Garden Center for 33 years and do a great job. I missed them when I was honoring family-owned nurseries and went by on Valentine’s Day to get to know them better. Mercedes talked with me while wrapping flowers for eager lovers. That is personal attention. Visit small familyowned nurseries. There is panache there and the true spirit of garden art. 6. Discover a plant that nobody has. A good place to look is at an arboretum sale, or the Annie’s Annuals tables at Half Moon Bay Nursery. Become an expert at growing that particular species. Do homework online; there is plenty of information on just about every different type of plant. 7. If you have a wet, shady garden, create a sun spot. Hint: You can use mirrors. If you have a desert garden, add a fountain with flowing water. 8. Put a male canary in your garden during the day just for the song of it. Make sure it has food and water in its cage. If you don’t want a live song bird, wire up some outdoor speakers, hide them in the bushes and play song-bird recordings when you are out there. 9. Throw a party. A party of friends or family always generates garden cleanup and detailing ideas. 10. Visit estates, parks, grand hotels with gardens, roof-top gardens in San Francisco and classic shopping centers like Stanford Shopping Center for ideas to steal. Remember Picasso (or was it Steve Jobs?) said “good artists borrow, great artists steal.” Good Gardening.

New Menlo AD is school’s ex-hoop coach

SHP girls topple rival Menlo again


enlo School has dug into its past to find a leader for the future, hiring Kris Weems as its new athletic director. Weems, the school’s former boys basketball coach, brings a wealth of experience as an administrator, coach and player at all levels from youth to NCAA Division I to the NBA. Most recently, he was an assistant coach and scout for the Golden State Warriors. Prior to that, Weems coached at Menlo and worked in the school’s Development Office, coordinating the Athletics Hall of Fame and helping to raise funds for Menlo’s recent capital campaign, a highlight of which was the new Athletic Center. “I am really excited about the opportunity and to be back with the Menlo community,” Weems said. “I learned a lot at Menlo as a coach, then that experience ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊnx®

by Ari Kaye oming into their final-regular season match of the 2013 season, the Sacred Heart Prep girls lacrosse team had never beaten Menlo School in its history — falling victim to the Knights many times during Menlo’s 59-game league winning streak that stretched over seven seasons. However, Sacred Heart Prep finally broke through on — appropriately enough — on Senior Day last year and again in the championship game of the West Bay Athletic League playoffs. After Wednesday’s match, the Gators now have a historic threegame winning streak against their neighborhood rival. Thanks to late second-half goals by sophomore Ally Mayle and senior Caroline Cummings, Sacred Heart Prep survived a frantic Knights’ rally to post a




By Rick Eymer hat Chiney Ogwumike accomplished in four years at Stanford quite possibly sets a bar so high that much time will pass until someone comes close to her career numbers. In 35 previous years of Cardinal women’s basketball, no one enjoyed a better year, or a better career. Ogwumike may well be remembered as the best to ever play on the Farm. Jennifer Azzi will always be remembered as Stanford’s best team captain and point guard, Kate Starbird as the school’s best pure shooter and Jayne Appel as the best post player. Val Whiting, Kristin Folkl, Nicole Powell, Candice Wiggins and Nnemkadi Ogwumike will always remain hot topics when the subject of Stanford women’s basketball is raised. Chiney Ogwumike, taken as a whole, did a lot of everything for the Cardinal, with the exception of hoisting a national championship trophy. Then again, an NCAA title has eluded Stanford since 1992, when current assistant coach Kate Paye was a freshman guard for Hall of


TENNIS HONOR . . . Stanford freshman Carol Zhao has been honored as the 2013 Junior Player of the Year, as announced by Tennis Canada. Zhao was selected for the award along with North Carolina freshman Brayden Schur (Pickering, Ontario). Both players are members of Tennis Canada’s full-time National Training Centre in Montreal, making their marks on both the junior and professional circuits in their final year as junior competitors. A native of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Zhao became just the ninth Canadian to win a junior Slam title by clinching the Junior Australian Open doubles crown with Croatian partner Ana Konjuh. Reaching a career-high ITF junior ranking of world No. 9, Zhao also won the doubles title at the prestigious Grade 1 ITF tournament in Roehampton. Zhao has continued that success in her rookie season on The Farm, compiling a 21-3 overall record and 14-0 mark in duals.

Stanford bids farewell to Chiney Ogwumike after a remarkable career

Gunn’s Robinson will pass on record run Senior standout says no to possible historic race at Arcadia in favor of playing soccer with her club team by Keith Peters ne of the expected highlights of this weekend’s annual Arcadia Invitational track and field meet will be the girls’ 3,200, where a talented field will take a run at the storied national record of 9:48.59 by Kim Mortenson in 1996. Gunn senior Sarah Robinson had the opportunity to join in the memorable chase on Saturday night, but instead threw her allegiance to her club soccer team. Thus, instead of chasing history, she’ll be chasing a soccer ball. Gunn coach PattiSue Plumer understand’s Robinson’s decision, as difficult as it may be. “She truly is missing the chance of a lifetime,” said Plumer, “but I am sure her soccer coach believes that she has her best interest at heart, as well.” While Robinson won’t be participating in what may be a race for the ages, she certainly hasn’t been slacking off recently as she had a sensational two days at the Stanford Invitational last weekend. Robinson gave up the 3,000 in order to run on the distance medley relay team on Friday. The foursome of sophomore Gillian Meeks, sophomore Maya Miklos, junior Emily Aiken and Robinson wound up winning in 11:56.68. Not only did the time improve upon their previous state lead of 12:06.81, but it was the fastest outdoor time in the nation this season. The previous national outdoor best was 11:59.37 by Marcus High of Flower Mound, Texas. Davis High also was under the previous lead with a second place of 11:56.90. The time also broke the previous Gunn school record of 12:04 that featured a team with Robinson’s sister, Erin. “Our goal was to break 12:00,” said Plumer, whose team missed the U.S. indoor lead of 11:43.9 by West High of Springfield, Va. In fact, there are six faster indoor times than Gunn’s outdoor mark. “I think that’s really exciting,” said Robinson said of the national-leading time. She anchored the team with a 4:49 split for her 1,600 leg. Robinson actually was overtaken coming off the final turn and had to turn it on over the final 100 meters. “I haven’t seen her finish like that,” said Plumer, who rarely sees Robinson ever trailing in a race. “I couldn’t be happier . . . very pleased for her that she was able to do that.” On Saturday, Anna Maxwell of San Lorenzo Valley and Robinson ran two of the top three outdoor



14-13 victory and take over sole possession of first place in the Foothill Division of the WBAL. “Last year was exciting, but that was a different team and a different season,” Sacred Heart firstyear head coach Kate Hourigan said. “We knew this was going to be a high-intensity game, and I think the girls worked up to that expectation.” Mayle and Cummings were the two offensive stars for the host Gators (4-0, 9-3), scoring six and three goals, respectively. All three of Cummings’ goals came in the second half, including the gamewinner. Sophomore Parvathi Narayan led Menlo (2-1, 7-4) with four goals, with fellow sophomores Kira Sze and Nikky Price each adding three goals. Talented freshman Sophia Donovan contributed three goals and three assists. Menlo opened up the first half red hot, outscoring Sacred Heart Prep 6-3 in the first 10 minutes of the contest, helped by Narayan’s three early goals. Sacred Heart Prep controlled the next 15 minutes of the game, shutting out the Knights while scoring four goals to open up a 7-6 lead at halftime. “The energy level of the defense went up,” Hourigan said of her team’s play toward the end of the first half. “They were a little bit tighter on their marks and a little bit quicker on their slides. I think they were just coming together a little more as a unit as the game went on.” The teams remained relatively even for most of the second half, until Cummings, Mayle and sophomore Libby Muir helped lead a 3-0 spurt that put Sacred Heart up 12-9 with six minutes remaining. The Knights came storming back, scoring three goals over the next minute of play, including two by Donovan, to tie the game at 12. That tie lasted barely 10 seconds as Mayle took the ensuing draw right to the net, and scored the go-

Cummings added the winning goal with 3:14 remaining and, despite Narayan scoring one final goal with 53 seconds left (off an assist from Donovan), the final draw wound up in Sacred Heart Prep’s possession and Mayle ran it away from the defense to run out the clock. Menlo will have to wait around a month to try and exact its revenge against the Gators, as the two teams don’t face off again until May 2 at Menlo. “It’s going to be another rough game,” Mayle said looking ahead to the Gators’ next match against

the Knights. “We need to practice very hard and maintain the level that we’re at, and hopefully they can maintain the level that they’re at and it should be another good game. They’re a very good team.” Although Menlo might not be used to this level of competition within its own division, Knights’ head coach Jen Lee was excited that her team now has a competitive rival just up the street. “I try to go with the big picture instead of how I personally feel or my team feels, and it’s really good for the game and for the league,” Lee said of SHP’s recent success. “We know and love many of the players on the (Sacred Heart) roster, so there is a familiarity of love along with rivalry.” In other girls’ lacrosse action Wednesday, Palo Alto (4-1) got four goals from Ami Drez and three from Paige Bara in a 13-5 win over Carlmont in Santa Clara Valley Athletic League play. Allie Peery added two goals for the Vikings (5-4 overall). Boys lacrosse Sacred Heart Prep remained unbeaten and atop the SCVAL De Anza Division race with a 14-4 drubbing of visiting Palo Alto on Tuesday. The Gators (6-0, 8-3) grabbed an 8-3 halftime lead against the Vikings (3-2, 6-4) and cruised behind seven goals from Sean Mayle. Frank Bell added two goals with Frankie Hattler providing three assists plus one goal. Single goals also came from Brian White, Will Kremer, Connor Moses and Noah Kawasaki. N

times in in the nation in the girls’ mile. Maxwell clocked a U.S.-leading 4:43.27 while Robinson ran the No. 3 time, a 4:48.77. The No. 2 time is a converted 4:47.50 by Hannah Long of Eureka, Mo. The nation’s fastest time was clocked indoors, a 4:32.15 by Alexa Efraimson of Camas, Wash. Maxwell’s time also is No. 1 all-time in the Central Coast Section. Her converted time (mile to 1,600) of 4:41.63 surpassed the 4:42.45 run by Nikki Hiltz of Aptos while winning the 2012 CIF State Meet. Robinson’s time, which is faster than the 4:49.26 she ran at this meet last year, moved her to No. 9 all-time in the CCS (a converted 4:47.10) and lowered her own school record from 4:47.58 (converted from her ‘13 mile time). She’s also No. 2 in the state behind Maxwell. Also in the race Saturday was Meeks. She finished seventh overall in 4:59.79. That converts to 4:58.05 for 1,600 meters and ranks her No. 4 in school history. Elsewhere on the weekend: The Menlo-Atherton girls finished sixth overall in the distance medley relay with the team of senior Taylor Fortnam, senior Annie Harrier, sophomore Cat DuPuy and sophomore Annalisa Crowe clocking 12:44.36. Gunn’s Miklos, meanwhile, finished second overall in a field of 32 runners in the 400 hurdles as she clocked 1:01.63. In the girls’ 400, Menlo School senior Maddy Price made her outdoor season debut in her specialty a good one by winning in 55.22. She was more than 1 1/2 seconds ahead of second place. Price’s time ranks her No. 4 in the state. Price has run 54.69 indoors this season. Price came back later in the meet and finished second in the 100 in a season best of 12.23. Gunn sophomore Janae Pennywell was sixth in 12.41. The boys’ 400 also provided some fast times with Frank Kurtz of Heritage turning in a stateleading 47.58. Nick Sullivan of Palo Alto shook off some early season leg problems and finished fourth overall in a season best and Central Coast Section leading time of 49.18. Paly teammate Eli Givens also ran his season best, 49.53 for seventh, while MenloAtherton senior Zach Plante did likewise while finishing eighth in 49.69. Givens ranks No. 2 in CCS this season with that time while Plante, the former leader at 50.12, is now No. 3. In the boys’ triple jump, Menlo School’s Paul Tuoma leaped 45-5 3/4 to take third. N

was taken to another level when I joined the Development Office and got the chance to be involved on a daily basis with the staff and students.” Weems created many close ties with students at Menlo — he was also an advocate, mentoring a group of students throughout each school year. During his sevenseason tenure as Menlo’s varsity boys’ basketball coach, his teams made three trips to NorCals and won two championships in seven Central Coast Section appearances. He held a 138-60 record overall and received numerous coach of the year awards. Before Weems came to Menlo, he served as special assistant to the Associate Athletic Director at his alma mater, Stanford University, where he earned his BA in Sociology. A three-year starter for the basketball team, he amassed 1,235 career points and helped lead the Cardinal to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 1998 Final Four.

“Kris knows the school well and understands at a deep level the challenges and opportunities of building a strong athletics program in an environment of academic excellence,” said Menlo Head of School Than Healy. Weems takes over for Craig Schoof, who is in his 14th year as Menlo’s athletic director and 27th season as baseball coach. As athletic director, Schoof has overseen a program that has won numerous titles every season — 120 league, 30 CCS, 15 NorCal and two state championships. During his tenure, the Knights have won at least one CCS title each year, and every sport has secured at least one league title, a first for the school. His baseball teams have won 16 league titles and, in 2013, Schoof was recognized by his colleagues and named CCS Honor Coach for his contributions to the sport. One of Weems’ first tasks as the new athletic director will be to lead a newly envisioned program for grades 6-12, developing a strategic plan for athletics at Menlo for the upper and middle school divisions combined.

Women’s water polo faces a showdown Top-ranked Cardinal visits conference co-leader UCLA with first place and possible MPSF tourney No. 1 seed at stake By Rick Eymer omething will have to give over the next week as the three top women’s water polo teams in the country will be facing big tests. Top-ranked Stanford (3-0 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, 17-1 overall) visits co-No. 1 UCLA 3-0, 21-2) on Friday at 1:30 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks) with first place in both the conference and country on the line. Third-ranked USC (4-1, 21-1), the defending national champion whose only loss was to the Cardinal two weeks, hosts the Bruins next Wednesday. By then, the conference picture should be cleared up as far as the top seeds for the MPSF tournament is concerned. Stanford, UCLA and the Trojans likely have clinched their respective places already in the national championship, which will be held in Los Angeles. The Bruins, with losses to the Cardinal and USC, handed Stanford its only loss of the season. The Cardinal needs a victory if it wants the top seed for the conference tournament. The Stanford-UCLA rivalry once again features the meeting of the Dorst family, with senior utility player Becca Dorst the Bruins third-leading scorer with 29 goals. Junior Emily Dorst is one of three goalies who have played for Stanford this season. The sisters both attended Menlo-Atherton High. Stanford’s sister act of Kiley and Jamie Neushul will again be facing off against former Dos Pueblos High teammate Kodi Hill and Cardinal freshman Cassidy Papa will play against fellow Corona del Mar grads Alex Musselman and Victoria Kent. Cardinal sisters Kaley Dodson and Cory Dodson will see former Los Alamitos teammate Rachel Fattal of the Bruins. Stanford has won eight straight since losing to the Bruins, including last weekend’s 14-4 victory over Arizona State, in which the Cardinal did not allow a goal over the final 26 minutes of action. Annika Dries and Ashley Grossman each scored four times against the Sun Devils.



Fame coach Tara VanDerveer. Ogwumike made three appearances in the Final Four, not quite as many as her older sister, and she never got to play in the year’s grand finale. She did so many other things, though, including three AllAmerica seasons, twice earning consensus first team All-America honors. She’ll be remembered as much for her drive, her leadership and her personality as for her production. Ogwumike is largely credited with creating Stanford’s “Nerd Nation” culture, which swept the campus and internet, injecting the student body with a renewed enthusiasm for all sports. Her videos will last as long as her basketball legacy. Sixth-ranked Stanford saw its season come to an end in the national semifinal of the NCAA tournament Sunday in a 75-56 setback to top-ranked and undefeated Connecticut in Nashville, Tenn. The Huskies (40-0) went on to win their ninth NCAA title with a 79-58 win over previously unbeaten Notre Dame on Tuesday night. Junior point guard Amber Orrange led Stanford with 16 points. Freshman Lili Thompson scored 10 of her 12 points in the first half for Stanford, which reached its sixth Final Four in the past seven years and 12th in 28 overall NCAA tournament appearances. “Our team is really disappointed with how we played, especially in the second half,” VanDerveer said. “We turned the ball over too much and we did not do a good enough job defensively. Connecticut played a really good game.” Ogwumike ended her AllAmerica career as the Pac-12’s all-time leading scorer (2,737) and its top rebounder (1,567). Senior Mikaela Ruef, who enjoyed her finest year, and Sara James also depart. “I’m proud to have coached Chiney for four years,” VanDerveer said, “and our future great player in Lili Thompson tonight.” Ogwumike blocked 202 shots, second only to Appel and also shattered single-season marks with 967 points, 669 field-goal attempts and 402 made baskets. The single-game rebounding mark of 24 also belongs to Ogwumike, who had 15 points and 10 rebounds in the loss to the Huskies. “It has been an amazing run,” Ogwumike said. “I’m not even that emotional about it because I was just trying to have fun, enjoy the moment, play hard. And that’s easy to do when you have a great coach and you have great teammates.” Orrange and Thompson represent what could be another run at the title next year. The two dynamic guards form a combination of stealth and aggression that will rival anything in the nation.

Chiney Ogwumike (13) finished her career with 15 points and 10 rebounds in a semifinal loss to UConn in the NCAA Final Four semis. Juniors Bonnie Samuelson, Taylor Greenfield and Erica Payne showed enough to feel good about their potential. Thompson is part of a freshman class that showed the promise of future stardom and also included Karlie Samuelson, Erica McCall (nicknamed “Bird,” by Ogwumike), Briana Roberson and Kailee Johnson. Alex Green, Jasmine Camp and Tess Picknell have been through it a couple of years now and will look to continue their development. VanDerveer signed the nation’s ninth-rated, by ESPNW, recruiting class. Six-foot-three Kaylee Johnson, a three-time Wyoming Gatorade Player of the Year, led the state in scoring and rebounding all four years at Natrona County High and led the Mustangs to a 92-16 record (85 percent) during her prep career. Brittany McPhee, a 6-0 guardforward out of Mount Rainier High, is also a three-time Washington Gatorade Player of the Year who has been favorably compared with Starbird, who also came out of Washington. She’s been described as a game changer. McPhee gave up a promising modeling career to concentrate on basketball and playing with her twin sister, Jordan.

New Jersey Gatorade Player of the Year Taylor Rooks, a 6-1 small forward from Gill St. Bernard High, holds the school’s scoring record with over 2,000 points. She also recorded more than 1,000 rebounds. All three future Cardinal players were ranked among the top 30 prospects in the nation. “This is a very talented, very exciting group of young women that will be coming to Stanford,” VanDerveer said. “Brittany, Kaylee and Taylor bring a variety of talents as well as a lot of energy that will fit right into our program. I am very pleased to have them join the Stanford family.” They will be expected to contribute right away. Stanford has won or shared the past 14 consecutive conference titles, though the Cardinal fell in the Pac-12 tournament title game before going on its run to the Final Four. Stanford and Connecticut met for the sixth time in NCAA tournament play and the fifth in the Final Four. “We did a great job the first half managing the game and taking timely shots,” Ogwumike said. “Things got away from us in the second half. Maybe if two things went our way we could have swayed the momentum. But that’s just the way the game goes sometimes.” N

Baseball Dominic Jose doubled home two runs to tie it and pinch hitter Brant Whiting singled in the go-ahead in the bottom of the eighth inning as Stanford rallied to beat visiting UC Davis, 7-6, in a nonconference game on Tuesday night. Palo Alto resident Alex Blandino and Zach Hoffpauir each hit a home run for the Cardinal (11-14), which snapped a four-game losing

streak. Menlo School grad Danny Diekroeger drove in two runs for the Cardinal, which improved to 4-4 in one-run games. Stanford returns to Pac-12 Conference action Friday, with the first game of a scheduled threegame series at conference leader Washington. Men’s golf Stanford senior Cameron Wilson is one of five finalists for the Byron Nelson Award, as announced Tuesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America. Wilson made the final cut for the award presented by Cleveland Golf/Srixon along with Brandon Hagy and Joel Stalter of Cal, Northwestern’s Jack Perry and Alabama’s Cory Whitsett. Women’s lacrosse For the second consecutive weekend, Stanford plays an undefeated MPSF opponent as the Cardinal (9-2, 3-1) travels to Eugene to take on Oregon (7-4, 3-0) on Friday at 5 p.m. The game is scheduled to be televised by the Pac-12 Networks. The Ducks are among three teams still perfect in MPSF play, along with Denver (5-0) and USC (5-0). Men’s tennis Stanford No. 1 singles player John Morrissey recovered from a tough first-set loss to claim a 6-7, 6-0, 6-4 triumph at the top of the ladder to clinch a 4-2 nonconference men’s tennis victory over visiting Cal Poly on Tuesday. Competing in only its second home match in two weeks, Stanford (10-4) surrendered only four games combined en route to capturing the doubles point for a 1-0 lead. Stanford hosts Washington in a Pac-12 match on Friday at 1:30 p.m. Track and field Stanford sophomore Steven Solomon was named Pac-12 Men’s Track Athlete of the Week, the Pac-12 announced Wednesday. Solomon dominated the 400 meters at the Australian national championships on Saturday, winning by 0.87 while recording a time of 45.36 to break a Stanford school record that had stood since 1994. It was the fastest 400 for Solomon since his run to the final at the 2012 Olympic Games, and is the second-fastest among collegians outdoors this season. Solomon will run in the 400 meters and in the 4x400 relay at the Big Meet against California on Saturday at Berkeley’s Edwards Stadium. N
