Palo Alto board tours Illinois school with superintendent finalist Glenn “Max” McGee shows Palo Alto education officials STEM-centric school by Elena Kadvany


he finalist for the job of Palo Alto school district superintendent, Glenn “Max” McGee, led the Palo Alto Board of Education on a tour Thursday of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) in Aurora, Illinois, where McGee was the president from 2007 to 2013. The trip was arranged so that

board members and other education officials, including Palo Alto education union leaders and parent volunteers, could learn more about the man whom the board has selected out of eight semi-finalists to potentially head the district. McGee no longer works at IMSA; he left the prestigious

public boarding school in 2013, citing personal and family reasons. On Thursday, though, he told the Weekly that he left to pursue his current position as head of school at the Princeton International School of Mathematics and Science, a small, private international boarding school in Princeton, New Jersey, that opened in September. “You don’t get the opportunity to run a startup every day,” said McGee, who is 63. “You get to hire all your own people; you get

complete control of the operation. When do you have the chance to make education what you really believe it ought to be?” The Princeton venture is backed by a Chinese foundation, and its student body has equal numbers of Chinese and American students. McGee said the offer to head the school arose after research projects he coordinated between IMSA students and students and faculty in Beijing “got some attention in China.” He’s built the school from the

ground up, from hiring nine teachers to shoveling snow and taking students to the emergency room, he said. “As some (IMSA) alumni will say: ‘You’ll love it; you’ll hate it; it’ll be 80 hours a week, but it is your baby,’” he said, referring to those who have gone on to found notable Silicon Valley companies. “And I’m very, very proud of what we’ve done.

World War II veteran receives long overdue medals Palo Alto resident assisted by Rep. Anna Eshoo and staff



World War II veteran John Indergand wears a jacket pinned with his Bronze Star medal, Combat Infantry Badge and Purple Heart with an attached Oak Leaf Cluster at his Palo Alto home.

t a luncheon in Mountain View last November, U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo overheard John Indergand talking about his service in World War II, mentioning how he had never received an Oak Leaf Cluster medal he was promised after his second combat injury. Later, Eshoo asked him about it and said that with some more information, she might be able to help. In February, Indergand and his wife, Litsie, were called into Eshoo’s Palo Alto office. There he was presented with a few wooden boxes, holding the Oak Leaf Cluster, a Purple Heart medal, a Bronze Star medal and a Combat Infantry Badge. Now Indergand, 89, wears them proudly on his tweed jacket. Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, has assisted other veterans with similar inquiries before, each time embarking

He signed up for armored services, and after training in Kentucky and Missouri, he landed with the 7th Armored Division in Normandy, France, shortly after D-Day in June 1944. He had just turned 20.

Though several people enjoyed the tranquil ride through the campus, others had concerns about Cubberley’s activity on the not-so-quiet weekdays. “I know it’s legal for children to ride on the sidewalk, but they should know that cars aren’t looking for them there,” longtime Palo Alto resident Patricia Morris said. Another woman agreed, citing several times bikers on the Cubberley campus have been hit by car doors as they were being opened by parked motorists who weren’t

As his wound was not severe, he rejoined his division only a few days later. The battle at Pont-à-Mousson against the German military — whose skill and technology Indergand never hesitated to compliment — was rough on the Americans, which might explain why few people hear about it today, Indergand said. “The winning battles get celebrated a lot, and I approve of that, but sometimes they don’t tell us about some of the battles like Pont-à-Mousson,” he said. “Officially in the first 25 years, I never

The city’s bike plan calls for installations of “sharrows,” symbols that designate biking space on roads without bike lanes to prevent “dooring” from parked cars. The tour proceeded north on Alma Street’s sidewalk to avoid sharing the thoroughfare’s narrow lanes with passing cars. Some residents felt safe up on the sidewalk, though one man said he didn’t think he would feel safe riding on Alma even if a bike lane were put in. “Alma is just one of a network” of bike paths, Rodriguez reminded residents, adding that the city’s bike plan is geared toward giving


choices to cyclists. In March, the city approved $2.2 million to start the planning of its numerous projects, which include bike boulevards, “sharrows” installations and multi-use trails. On May 14, Rodriguez updated the city’s Planning and Transportation Commission on active bicycle projects, which are part of a master plan the city approved in 2012 with the goal of making Palo Alto one of the nation’s top biking destinations. Rodriguez touched on the outreach tours, saying that the bike-alongs have had a diverse turnout with kids, parents and seniors alike. “It’s been a great discussion,” ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê«>}iÊ££®

Around Town

PAY DAY ... Palo Alto has at least nine residents who make far below the living wage and often work well past midnight. These nine residents, known collectively as the City Council, make about $600 a month (the mayor and the vice mayor get a little extra), an amount that is scarcely enough to rent a closet in the city they represent. And even though the job carries plenty of non-monetary benefits (legislative power, fame and the warm feeling of doing a civic duty), some in the current group believe it may be time for a raise. The council’s Policy and Services Committee discussed on Tuesday night a proposal to raise the stipend council members receive and while the committee didn’t make any decisions, members expressed an interest in raising the compensation. Council salaries in California are set by state guidelines, with figures dependent on the city sizes. In Palo Alto, the council could raise its salaries by about $390 a month and still remain within these guidelines, City Attorney Molly Stump told the council committee. Any further changes could be made by amending the City Charter, which would require a vote of the people. Councilman Greg Scharff argued Tuesday that a Charter change is not something that the city should pursue at this time. Councilman Larry Klein disagreed and said he would support giving the voters a chance to weigh in on doubling the council’s stipend (provided they also approve in November a reduction in council seats). “I think conditioning an increase on the reduction (of seats) would make it very clear to people that they have to expect more from the remaining seven,” said Klein, who is terming out this year and who would thus not be effected by the change. The committee ultimately voted 3-1, with Scharff, Gail Price and Greg Schmid supporting and Klein dissenting, to resume the conversation once more information comes in. SWINGS, DUCKS AND TATER TOTS ... Spectators aren’t supposed to clap during City Council meetings, but no one complained when a group started clapping during Monday night’s meeting after City Manager James Keene announced the city’s latest earned accolade. This time, the city was getting kudos from the

website, which ranked Palo Alto as one of the top 10 cities in the nation for kids (at No.8). Criteria for the ranking included quality of schools, the percentage of households with school-age children, cost of living and restaurants with kids’ menus. The website lauds Palo Alto’s Mediterranean climate, abundant bike paths, a vibrant downtown, tree-lined streets, cultural events, educational opportunities and library system. “While parents pay a high price to live in Palo Alto Calif., their children can attend exceptionally rated schools, play in pristine parks and experience the benefits of living in the heart of Silicon Valley,” the website stated. The cheering, meanwhile, came from a group of parents supporting the construction of the new Magical Bridge playground in Mitchell Park — a playground designed to accommodate children with disabilities. Later in the meeting, the City Council unanimously approved a budget ordinance that contributes funding for the project, which is largely financed through donations.

THE ‘D’ WORD ... When locally prolific architect Ken Hayes proposed rezoning a site on El Camino Real to accommodate 10 extra condominiums, he found sympathetic ears on the Architectural Review Board. Several members of the board, including Chair Lee Lippert and Vice Chair Randy Popp cited the city’s housing shortages and argued on May 15 that it would be appropriate to add some density to the site near Maybell Avenue. City Hall officials are a little less enthusiastic about density these days, having suffered last year through a citizen revolt involving a separate rezoning proposal around Maybell Avenue. This week, City Manager James Keene said that the project (which would include 21 new units under the rezoning proposal and 11 under existing zoning) will go in front of the City Council for a special “pre-screening,” before the application goes any further. Keene said that the decision to bring the project at 4146 El Camino Real was prompted by the community concerns about upzoning and the council’s recent decision to put all “planned community” projects (which include zoning exceptions in exchange for public benefits) on hold. N


Palo Alto voters to weigh in on a smaller council City Council committee approves placing measures on November ballot for fewer seats, longer terms by Gennady Sheyner


alo Alto voters will likely have a chance in November to do something that hasn’t been done in more than four decades: change the number of members on their City Council. The council’s Policy and Services Committee recommended on Tuesday night a ballot measure that would reduce the number of council seats from nine to seven. The committee also gave the nod to a separate ballot measure that would extend term limits for council members from two terms to three. Both recommendations came on a 3-1 vote, with Gail Price, Larry Klein and Greg Scharff supporting them and Greg Schmid dissenting. Both changes were proposed in a June 2013 memo from Vice Mayor (now mayor) Nancy Shepherd, Councilwoman (now vice mayor) Liz Kniss and Price, who chairs the Policy and Services Committee. The memo pointed out that most cities of comparable size have seven council members (Menlo Park has five) and argued that shifting to seven seats “could bring efficiencies of

meeting effectiveness and workload, which deserves discussion and consideration while also reducing costs.” The city has had nine council members since 1971, when the number of seats was reduced from 15. The committee largely went along with the logic in the memo, though members had slightly different reasons for supporting the change. Scharff offered what he acknowledged to be a “weak” and “tentative” endorsement of the idea and called it a “difficult decision.” “I think seven is clearly more efficient; I don’t think there’s any question about that,” he said. But he also concurred to some degree with Schmid, who in his dissent quoted the French political thinker Alexis de Tocqueville, a 19th-century observer of America’s messy grassroots democracy. In opposing both a smaller council and longer terms, Schmid argued that these measures would create new barriers between the council and the public and make it more difficult for citizens to get elected. The goal should be “having

diversity on the council,” even if it means inefficiency. He praised Palo Alto’s willingness to “put up with some of the inefficiencies with having a larger number of council members for the benefit it provides to the public.” Inefficiency, he said (paraphrasing de Tocqueville), is the “cost of liberty.” Schmid also praised the idea of having more extensive debates and “needing a slightly larger majority to agree to pass things.” His colleagues, however, were less excited about inefficiency. Price suggested that the smaller body could lessen the burden on staff and lead to more focused council discussions. Klein said that while the change may lead to “modest efficiencies,” citizens who expect a dramatic improvement will be “sorely disappointed.” Klein also supported placing the measure on the ballot for a different reason: the challenge of finding candidates willing to serve. “I’m increasingly concerned about the lack of candidates,” said Klein, who is now in the final year of his last council term. “I think

running our city has become a much more arduous job. The way the society is moving we’ll have less people who can afford the time to run for office.” Klein also had no hesitation about forwarding to the ballot a proposal to extend the number of terms a council member can serve from two to three. Term limits “don’t accomplish anything” and in fact “have negative consequences,” he said. Scharff agreed and called the extension proposal “a good compromise between where we are now and having no term limits.” The logic for proceeding with the change closely followed the argument in the June 2013 memo, in which Shepherd, Kniss and Price argued that term limits keep council members from obtaining and retaining positions on influential regional boards that set policies in areas such as transportation, housing and utilities. “To effectively represent Palo Alto’s interests, the city’s representatives need time to gain expertise and build seniority on these bodies,” the memo stated. “Term

limits interrupt this process.” Scharff said Tuesday that term limits put Palo Alto’s council members at a disadvantage on the regional level. A council member who is restricted to two terms has a hard time getting enough seniority to win appointments to influential regional bodies such as the Caltrain board or the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, he said. That reality “gives Palo Alto much less influence and I think it’s something that really hurts us,” Scharff said. Price agreed and called a shift to three terms “reasonable.” “I think service as an elected official requires knowledge, requires tenacity (and) requires the time to serve and to serve well,” she said. Though the change will likely appear on the November ballot, it remains to be seen whether it would make any difference. In recent years, numerous council members (including recent mayors Peter Drekmeier, Sid Espinosa and Yiaway Yeh) opted to (continued on page £{)


Wisconsin principal to head Gunn High School Denise Herrmann has led Madison-area high school since 2006


he principal of a suburban high school near Madison, Wisconsin, has been hired as the new principal at Gunn High School. Denise Herrmann, who began her career as a science teacher, has been principal of Middleton High School in Middleton, Wisconsin — a town of 18,159 people — since 2006. Herrmann was selected by Palo Alto school district officials and a Gunn “input” committee that included department heads, staff, parents and two students, according to the Gunn student newspaper, The Oracle. Herrmann’s move to Palo Alto Unified comes on the heels of a widespread cheating scandal at Middleton discovered in December 2013, which resulted in the school forcing nearly 250 seniors to retake a calculus test. Administrators found that students had been using cell phones to take photographs of tests (which some then shared and sold), taken additional copies of tests from classrooms, bartered questions on tests to share answers and planned absences on test days to

School district plan sets goals for learning disabled, low-income students State-mandated accountability plan focuses on English-language learners, at-risk youth, overall student well-being


state-mandated plan that aims to help underperforming Palo Alto students but could benefit all students was praised by the Palo Alto Board of Education Tuesday morning. But board members asked for clarity on how the plan’s impact will be measured. The district must create the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to satisfy the educational priorities for students with specific needs. The LCAP is part of the state’s new method for distributing money to school districts, known as the K-12 Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). School districts are required to develop, adopt and update the three-year plan annually beginning on July 1. Under the new funding formula, for the first time in 40 years the district can prioritize its funds to meet specific student-population needs instead of being directed to spend the state allocations on specified programs. The school district will receive $1.4 million in “supplemental” LCFF funds beginning 2014-15. The amount will increase to approximately $2 million for 2015-16 and $2.3 million for 2016-17, based on the number of students who fit

specialized categories described in the plan. Those students include English learners, low-income students, foster and homeless youth, and students with disabilities. The funding amount is not an increase from prior years. The state is allowing school districts that are funded by local property taxes, such as Palo Alto, to retain the past state funding amounts. That so-called “supplemental funding” pays for programs that benefit underserved student populations. About 16 percent of school district students fall in the targeted categories. Board members lauded the plan for its emphasis on developing 21st-century learning skills — such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity — and efforts toward greater inclusiveness and equality in learning for all student groups. “This is a responsive, living document,” said board member Heidi Emerling, who praised the plan for its attentiveness to current district issues, especially bullying. The plan sets as two of its goals a full adoption at all school sites of the district’s new bullying regulations and development of a baseline to measure and docu-

by Sue Dremann ment reported bullying by 2015. In 2013, 65 percent of respondents to a district survey said they were satisfied with the district’s response to bullying; by 2017, the district hopes to increase that number to 79 percent, with targeted improvements for each year. Total LCAP program expenditures for 2014-15 are estimated at $2.9 million, to be funded by a combination of sources. Staff said that many programs and policies are already in effect and will help all students, not just the underserved populations. Goals that could benefit all students include: that 100 percent of teachers are credentialed to teach in their subject areas; standardizing instructional materials; raising the number of students who take and pass Advanced Placement courses; using technology for expanded learning; continuing professional education for teachers; developing more options that reflect students’ talents and interests; improving a sense of safety and connectedness; and enhancing college and career counseling. But much of the plan focuses on getting underserved students up to speed. A 2014 survey of parents,

teachers, students and district staff by consultants Hanover Research found that 21 percent of respondents said they were “very satisfied” with school support for underperforming students; 46 percent were “somewhat satisfied.” Parents and students were also less likely to agree that students with special needs have access to necessary support for learning. The survey found that 33 percent of all respondents said they were very satisfied and 51 percent were somewhat satisfied. Administrators hope to remedy these problems through more focused learning in smaller groups, additional tutoring and afterschool programs, providing additional attention to English-language learners and aide support for special-education students so they can be better integrated in the general classroom setting. The plan would add teachers and staff who reflect student diversity. Newly hired teachers would complete school district accreditation that focuses on teaching lowperforming, special-education and English-language learners, and at-risk youth who are in foster care or homeless. Teachers

would have additional, required professional-growth instruction every two years. Staff would have instruction on cultural literacy to help identify cultural customs and perspectives that have negatively affected attendance and learning. The plan seeks to quantify improvement. The district would try to increase the percentage of students who take and pass Advanced Placement classes. In 2013, that figure was the lowest in six years. A district study showed that 69.6 percent of students took and passed at least one Advanced Placement class.

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

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

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

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

rallied behind this mission, and the kids have learned so much in such a short time.” He said this experience makes the possible move to Palo Alto a “really tough decision.” “This is a great opportunity in Palo Alto. It’s a very, very difficult decision.” McGee has an extensive background in education at every level. He holds a doctorate in educational administration from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College in political science. He served as Illinois state superintendent for three years, from 1998 to 2001. In August 2001, he announced he would not seek renewal of his current contract, which ended that December. A news article from the Daily Herald in Illinois said there had been speculation the board may have been considering firing him. “At this point in my career, I believe that change needs to happen more rapidly, and in that vein I believe that the State Board would be better served by a new leader who can bring different experiences and skills to the table,” he wrote in a letter announcing his retirement. “It has been frustrating not to give our agency and my employees the time and attention they need and deserve, and it has been frustrating trying to maintain the focus needed to excel while balancing far too numerous competing demands on my time.” During his tenure as state superintendent — during which he oversaw two million students in 900 school districts — new Illinois Learning Standards, much like the nation’s new Common Core, were implemented; a new state assessment program was put into place; the first PSAE tests, a new exam that embeds the ACT test, were taken by 11th graders; and early childhood development and reading programs were in particular emphasized and supported, he said. “Despite all the progress, despite all the accomplishments, more than 40 percent of Illinois students are not meeting the Learning Standards,” the state board wrote in an announcement regarding McGee’s retirement. “That is simply unacceptable in a world in which post-secondary education is becoming a requirement for all but the most menial of jobs. Equally unacceptable is the achievement gap among groups of students, a gap that finds many minority students and students from low-income families consistently achieving below their peers.” McGee also worked as superintendent for Wilmette Public Schools in Illinois from 2001 to 2007 and for at least two additional school districts prior to his work as state superintendent. McGee told the Weekly that his time at Wilmette, a school district he characterized as simi-

Glenn “Max” McGee, second from left, leads the Palo Alto Board of Education, district staff and parent volunteers on a tour of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy on May 22. lar to Palo Alto’s in size and nature, would prepare him to serve as Palo Alto’s superintendent in numerous ways. He mentioned a cyber-bullying incident that took place during his time there: A group of middle school boys were bullying a female special-education student, but outside of school. The boys were suspended, some for longer than others, he said. “I think (bullying) needs to be dealt with immediately, decisively and then it needs to be communicated so that students and others know when we have this policy, to follow it,” he said. He said he’s read Palo Alto’s revised bullying prevention policy and was watching on broadcast TV when the school board tentatively approved it Tuesday night. “I think it’s a really thoughtful policy,” he said. McGee said that his main priorities for Palo Alto would be to encourage and maintain open, transparent communication and work on improving access and opportunities for the district’s underserved students. On Thursday, McGee led four

board members, Associate Superintendent Charles Young and a group of Palo Alto education officials through the halls of IMSA, which is housed in a 1970s building retrofitted to fit its highachieving students’ needs. During the tour, McGee greeted every single passerby by name, stopping to chat and catch up. McGee ran into senior Anthony Marquez, the school’s current student council president, and introduced him to the Palo Alto entourage. McGee put his arm around Marquez, pointed to the Dartmouth sweatshirt he was wearing and said: “I’m so proud of you.” The incoming student council president, junior Vinesh Kannan, lit up when he saw McGee in the hallway, and also stopped to say hello. An employee who also stopped to talk with McGee said: “This guy inspired me to be a teacher.” Branson Lawrence, the current principal, called McGee’s hiring as president in 2007 “a big deal for IMSA,” given as he was following on the heels of the school’s founding president, whose person-

ality was quieter. “Max is bigger than life. He’s very gregarious. People like to be around Max,” said Lawrence, who’s been at IMSA for 22 years, both as a teacher and an administrator. “It was a different atmosphere when Max came as far as the president’s office went.” IMSA is a state-funded public school that enrolls 650 residential students, grades 10 through 12, who live in dorms on campus. Due to its public nature, tuition and room and board are free, though there is an annual student fee that can be reduced or waived based on family income. Though the majority of its funding comes from the state, the gaps are filled by private and corporate donors. The school’s main building is small but houses science labs, an art room, a library, classrooms with open ceilings and octagonal tables to facilitate open discussion and support the school’s tagline, “inquiry-based learning.” IMSA’s philosophy is to “learn by doing.” Students sometimes lead classes; on Wednesdays, there are no classes, but students instead take the day to devote themselves to a year-long original research project. The majority of that research is done off site at institutions in the area like Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, the Illinois Institute of Technology as well as sites like Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Adler Planetarium, the Federal Reserve Bank, architectural firms and law firms. Some students also complete their research projects on site in the Student Inquiry and Research (SIR) room, which is complete with multiple 3-D printers, among other graduate-research-level devices and tools. IMSA was ranked 11th in the

nation in schools with the highest SAT/ACT scores, according to a Niche survey published in Business Insider in January. The elite college prep school has also turned out impressive alumni, many of which made their way to Silicon Valley: Steven Chen, co-founder and chief technology officer at YouTube; Yu Pan, one of the six co-creators of PayPal and YouTube’s first employee; Russel Simmons, Yelp co-founder, among others. The school also runs a number of outreach programs, expanding its scope beyond the small group of elite students who live and study there each year. Its two main initiatives are ALLIES, a servicelearning program that helps local high school students teach and learn STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts, and FUSION, an after-school STEM program that targets underserved elementary and middle school students with particular talent in mathematics and science. It also supports teachers’ professional development, if they choose to participate. IMSA also opens its classrooms up during the summer with programs like green architecture, quantum culinary school and medieval engineering. The school served an estimated 10,000 students and 1,000 teachers statewide last year through such programs, McGee said. In spite of the fact that McGee met with the Palo Alto school board Thursday, board President Barbara Mitchell told the Weekly that the district wouldn’t confirm until Friday, May 23, that McGee is the superintendent finalist. Current Superintendent Kevin Skelly announced that he will resign as of June 30. N Online Editor Elena Kadvany can be emailed at ekadvany@

Police missed stroke signs after crash Palo Alto officer ticketed disoriented man who later died from brain bleeding


hen William Brian Bedwell left his Palo Alto apartment on the morning of April 14, he kissed his wife and headed off to work. He seemed fine, his wife, Lorenza Moro, said. But while driving to his job as a senior scientist at SRI International, Bedwell, 63, had a hemorrhagic stroke on the right side of his brain. He struck three cars on El Camino Real and kept going. When police arrived, witnesses said he held onto the officer’s shoulder to steady himself, according to his sister, Dr. Penelope Friedman. Although he showed signs he was disoriented, Palo Alto police did not have a medical team evaluate him. Instead, they issued him a citation and had a tow-truck driver take him to work.

by Sue Dremann By the time he walked in the door at SRI, security and employees recognized something was severely wrong with Bedwell, and they called for an ambulance. Three days after surgery at Stanford Hospital, Bedwell never awoke. He died from his severe brain injury, Friedman said. Now Friedman and Moro are speaking out about a tragedy they say might have been averted if police had called emergency medical personnel. And they worry that this kind of alleged oversight could lead to someone else dying. In a May 16 letter to Palo Alto Mayor Nancy Shepherd, Vice Mayor Liz Kniss, Police Chief Dennis Burns, several other police officials and police auditors, Friedman outlined her concerns and questioned officers’ training: “One can logically conclude that as my brother was discussing the events of that morning with the attending police officers, waiting for the tow truck to tow his car away, filling out forms, having his driver’s license information taken and being arrested and told to attend court in the near future ... he was also continuing to bleed into his brain and moving closer and closer to his imminent death while none of the five police officers involved realized that they really had a very serious medical emergency on their hands in addition to a series of traffic accidents. I am appalled that this could happen in your community.” Police Lt. Zach Perron said the department is reviewing the incident in its entirety and is reaching out to the family. “Any time someone loses their life it’s a tragic situation. We are very sorry to learn about what happened to Mr. Bedwell, and our hearts go out to his family, coworkers and friends,” Perron said. Identifying strokes is a part of standard first-aid training every officer receives. California Peace Officers Standards and Training requires officers to pass first-aid training and have updated instruction every three years. Palo Alto has a higher threshold and requires updated training every two years, Perron said. But he cautioned that stroke symptoms can be subtle. “When someone is in obvious need, we will always summon medical aid,” he added. But Moro and Friedman said the signs that something was wrong were obvious. The alleged police oversights are “unacceptable,” Moro said. She pointed out that police had issued a referral for the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to test Bedwell’s driving ability. Just days after he died, she received a notice from the DMV notifying her husband that his license had been either suspended or revoked — she could not recall which — because

he didn’t appear for the driving test. Perron confirmed that officers issued a notice of priority reexamination, which required Bedwell to go to the DMV. “We will check that DMV knows that he is deceased,” Perron said. Bedwell also received a citation for a misdemeanor hit-and-run and was placed under privateperson arrest by a woman whose car he struck, Perron said. He was released on his own recognizance near the accident scene and was scheduled to appear in court. That court date has been canceled by the police department since learning of his death, Perron said. Friedman said the kind of stroke Bedwell had in his right parietal lobe is famous for the kinds of symptoms he exhibited. The side of the body affected by the stroke is the opposite of the side of the brain where the stroke occurred. In his case, the stroke caused “left special hemi-neglect,” by which victims lose sense of their left side. Bedwell reportedly said he heard crashing sounds, but he was not aware that he had hit the three cars, she said. “He couldn’t figure out where they were coming from, and he just kept going,” she said. The woman who was driving the first car Bedwell hit caught up with his vehicle and shouted for him to stop. Bedwell immediately pulled to the right and stopped, she said. After arriving at SRI, Bedwell was taken by ambulance to Stanford Hospital, where a CAT scan showed obvious bleeding. Bedwell had no history of drinking, using drugs or confusion, Friedman said. He did have a prosthetic heart valve and took Coumadin, a blood thinner. Hospital tests showed the Coumadin levels were not abnormally high, she said. Moro said Bedwell showed no stroke symptoms that morning. “When I was kissing him goodbye, I was coming from his left. There was nothing to suggest there was a problem from the left,” she said. The Santa Clara County Coroner’s Office has listed Bedwell’s cause of death as a stroke caused by the accident, but Friedman disputed that finding. The accidents, symptoms and witness statements all point to his having a stroke while driving, she said. As doctors tried to determine the cause of his stroke, Moro said she found a policeman’s business card in a bag of Bedwell’s belongings at the hospital. She left the officer a voicemail message to find out what had happened. “He never called back — he or anyone else. It’s not about wanting to get anything out of this. We feel what happened was unacceptable, and we don’t want this to happen to anyone else,” Moro said. N


Residents seeing green over Charleston-Arastradero bike boulevard City: Road improvements should include measures that alter human behavior


t’s been a highly contentious roadway for more than a decade, with everyone from motorists and bicyclists to pedestrians and residents of the surrounding Charleston-Arastradero corridor in Palo Alto at times seeing red. But at a community workshop Tuesday evening about how the road could be made safer for bicyclists, several dozen residents saw a different color: green. Green bike lanes are rapidly becoming part of Palo Alto’s urban roadscape. The rubbery-looking surface marks out a defined bike lane that is hard to miss, even when in the middle of the road, as on Park Boulevard south of California Avenue, residents at the meeting said. Although some residents said they think the green color is ugly, bicyclists said it is a vast safety improvement over traditional single white-line-striped bike lanes at the road edge or “sharrows” (arrows directing bikers and motorists to share the lane) stenciled with a bike symbol. Most at the meeting agreed the city should improve Arastradero Road with additions that would change human behavior — whether to slow traffic, make motorists more mindful of pedestrians or reduce student bicyclists’ urges to travel in

by Sue Dremann Green-lane experiments in Long Beach and Minneapolis documented corresponding decreases in auto-bicycle collision rates, according to a report by the City of Oakland. Another road feature, green “bike boxes,” enable cyclists to move from the right-hand bike lane to a painted green rectangle located directly in front of a vehicle at stop lights. The vividly marked space allows drivers to see the bike; cyclists can easily make left turns without entering the roadway from the driver’s blind side, said Penny Ellson, traffic safety representative for Gunn High School. The Charleston-Arastradero corridor serves 11 schools of all grades. The busy road is an east-west connector between U.S. Highway 101 and Interstate 280. It is the largest arterial in the city’s south, serving multiple modes of transportation, from buses and cars to bikes and pedestrians, Ellson said. And it is a dangerous stretch of roadway for ever-increasing student traffic. At Gunn High School alone, 871 students rode their bikes to school during peak hours, according to an October 2013 count, she said. And more kids on bikes are expected to flock to school. Terman Middle School is adding about

packs instead of single file. Parent Jessica Rothberg has seen how green bike lanes alter how people act. With her teenage daughter behind the wheel, Rothberg watched in horror as three girls precariously rode their bikes three abreast across El Camino around a pork-chop-shaped cement island in the road. Common teen etiquette would not leave one girl behind when riding in odd numbers, she said. But when the girls approached a green bike lane near El Camino Way, they switched to safer riding behavior. Two rode side by side and the third rode behind, all staying within the lane, she said. Elizabeth Bonnet, another parent, also feels the green lanes are safer and more visible. “It’s so much more comfortable. I feel like the green lane is a safe place, like along Park Boulevard,” she said. Stenciled sharrows are confusing, though, the parents agreed. Transportation studies have found that green lanes shift a substantial percentage of bicyclists away from the “door zone,” where they are often struck by opening car doors of parked cars. The changes in behavior were more pronounced than those found in studies of sharrows without the green pavement.

Bike projects

Various plans will be presented to the public in August, with a review by the city boards in the fall. A finalized plan will be developed by fall or winter 2015, followed by an environmental review. A construction design is scheduled to be completed in winter 2016. The plan will include left-turn refinements, bulb-out improvements, bike boxes, enhanced crosswalks, widened sidewalks and improved vehicle-traffic flow. But the actual work could take until 2018 or beyond to complete, Holly Boyd, city senior engineer, said. The city has a $450,000 grant for work on Charleston Road between Alma Street and Middlefield Road; a $1 million grant would cover work on Arastradero between Gunn High School and Georgia Avenue. The remainder would not start until there is funding, she said. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering the confusion and traffic snarls that have been the corridor’s legacy in recent years. “It would not be feasible to construct the entire corridor at one time. That would be a nightmare,” she said. More information and updates on the project are available at N

he said. Tours earlier this month and in late April explored proposed bike boulevards on Stanford Avenue and Wilkie Way; Homer and Channing avenues’ enhanced bikeway projects; and the Barron Park neighborhood bike routes. Saturday’s tour covered southern projects that are being largely funded by Internet search giant Google. Those include the San Antonio Avenue bike route and the Alma Street enhanced bikeway, among others. Stopping with the tour near some of Google’s newly acquired Palo Alto and Mountain View properties, including the former Mayfield Mall at Central Expressway and San Antonio Road, Palo Alto resident Vijnan Shastri voiced his concern on crossing San Antonio Avenue. “Going across is great, but coming back is not so great because you’re on the wrong side of the road to push the button,” he said. Rodriguez said Google wants to fix this exact problem. The company’s partnership with the city will support connections with Google facilities, though one Google source said that the company’s projects are not tied to any one piece of its recently growing property

200 new bike racks, she said. “We’ve learned that when you build it, they come,” Ellson said of the anticipated bike traffic. The city’s consultants and engineers are considering multiple roadway changes, including creating a “cycle track” that is separated from traffic by an island or curb. With streets, driveways, turning lanes, stop lights and lanes that narrow from four to two in places, however, the task is not as simple as adding green paint. Ellson and others offered other suggestions Tuesday. For instance, a landscaped median island would slow traffic and raise awareness, Ellson said. “Studies have shown that when you put objects close to peripheral vision, people start scanning for pedestrians, and when they do that, they release pressure from their gas pedals and slow down,” she said. Others suggested that existing “pork chop” islands at El Camino Real and Arastradero, which residents said obstruct the view for drivers and cause a squeeze for bicyclists who must compete with turning cars, be removed. Jimmy Sims, project engineer for consultant Mark Thomas & Company, Inc., said the firm is currently working on aerial mapping and counting traffic.

Dozens of Palo Alto residents — including kids and seniors — participated in Saturday’s bike-along to check out planned bike routes in the southern part of the city. paying the consulting companies directly for their planning services. A Google source said the sum is less than $200,000 for two of the projects currently underway. Representatives from Fehr & Peers and Alta Planning & Design, two of four consulting companies the city has enlisted to help with the bicycle projects, joined Saturday’s tour. In addition to reaching out to residents via bike tours, the city also hosts a table at the Palo Alto Farmers Market where residents can ask questions and get more information about the city’s bike plan. Residents can also visit cityofpaloalto. org/bike to give their input online, dropping a pin on a bike route map and typing in concerns or sugges-

tions for improvements. “A lot of work is focused on the planning phase,” Rodriguez said of the projects. The city will likely be in the planning phase for the next year at least until it can move forward with the approval processes, full design and finally construction, he added. Rodriguez expressed optimism about Palo Alto’s future as one of California’s most bicycle-friendly cities. “I always hear the same thing from the community,” Rodriguez said. “We have a wonderful plan.” N Editorial Intern Lena Pressesky can be emailed at

His second combat injury, sustained during the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944, was much more serious. Near the Belgian town of Houffalize, he was leading some German prisoners to a waiting truck when a shell exploded nearby, launching a piece of shrapnel at his leg that broke bone and severed nerves.

Oregon Expressway slowdown to speed up For motorists and residents wondering when the Oregon Expressway traffic crawl will come to an end, relief is expected by early September, said Santa Clara County Roads and Airports Department Project Engineer Craig Petersen. The project to improve traffic flow, which was first proposed in 2008 and approved by the city in 2009, will replace 50-year-old traffic signals along Oregon Expressway from U.S. Highway 101 to Alma Street and along Middlefield Road from Garland Drive to Marion Avenue. The road’s need for signal-timing changes to speed traffic flow and safety features for pedestrians and bicyclists is the major catalyst for the project. The project contract was awarded to Hayward-based Golden Bay Construction, Inc. in June 2013, and construction was to be completed in February. But the work came to a crawl last fall and this spring after a subcontractor failed to perform. At times, one lane has been closed for roadwork during non-peak weekday hours, causing traffic backups. The county has “lit more of a fire� to get the job completed, and work is now picking up, Petersen said. “The curb is in now and the median paving is done. They are standing up poles (for the lights) and looking at switching one signal on next week.� N — Sue Dremann







New bullying policy set for approval


The Palo Alto Board of Education Tuesday effectively gave its stamp of approval to the district’s revamped bullying prevention policy, adding it to the consent calendar — reserved for items routinely approved — for its June 3 meeting. The board’s discussion of the proposed policy focused on making sure the proper tools are provided to school administrators to evaluate the legal category under which alleged cases of bullying fall. That issue related to whether the student with the bullying complaint belongs to a legally protected class, such as a person with disabilities, or is non-protected. The proposed policy only covers cases of bullying of non-protected-status students. The board in February approved policies for how the district will respond to complaints of bullying from protected-class students. Those complaints are to be handled by district-level administrators. Under the proposed policy for non-protected-status students, school staff — rather than district staff — would investigate the complaints. Some board members expressed concern that each bullying complaint that is addressed under the new policy be properly documented and passed along to the district level. Superintendent Kevin Skelly suggested modifying the language to indicate copies of all documentation be passed on to the coordinator of student services to compile district data. N — Elena Kadvany

CityView A round-up


of Palo Alto government action this week

City Council (May 19) Nonprofits: The council approved raising grant allocations to local nonprofits by $31,620 in fiscal year 2015. The council voted against a recommendation to raise the allocation by $200,000, which was supported by council members Burt, Holman, Price and Schmid. Yes: Berman, Burt, Holman, Klein, Kniss, Scharff, Schmid, Shepherd No: Price Transit: The council discussed a proposal by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group to place a sales-tax increase on the November ballot to fund transportation improvements throughout Santa Clara County. The council referred the item to its Policy and Services Committee for further discussion. Yes: Unanimous

School Board (May 20) Report cards: The board heard a presentation about changes to the elementary school report cards. Members supported the changes, which include a greater focus on social-emotional learning and new performance labels. Action: None Salaries: The board discussed raises for substitute teachers and expressed support for setting salaries for substitutes at 51 percent of the starting teacher’s salary. The board is expected to approve the raises on June 3. Action: None

Council Infrastructure Committee (May 20) Funding: The committee approved a funding plan for infrastructure, which includes a new police building, two reconstructed fire stations and various bike projects. Yes: Unanimous

for low-income students at an estimated cost of $245,000. While a large portion of the document identifies programs for English-language learners, board members Tuesday said they wanted a better delineation of how programs will benefit special-education students. Board Vice President Melissa Baten Caswell asked staff to

Council ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ÊvÀœ“Ê«>}iÊÇ®

conclude their tenures after just one term. Price, whose first term expires this year, also announced in April that she does not plan to seek a second one. Liz Kniss noted at last month’s discussion of the proposal that the average length of service hasn’t really changed since the city first adopted term limits in 1992. The new ballot measures could add a complication to the city’s regular council election, which has five seats up for grabs. While Klein is termed out (and says he would not seek another term even if the ballot change suddenly granted him eligibility to do so) and Price is not running, the seats of Scharff, Shepherd and Karen Holman will

identify which programs are currently funded and which are new. The plan identifies programs and policies that are mostly in effect, with a few new additions, staff said. Caswell also wanted to see metrics added to the plan to help identify when goals are achieved. Board members asked for greater clarity and communication when bringing the plan, which is not to be confused with the district’s Strategic Plan, to the public. An advisory group that in-

cludes special education, parent, student, PTA and educator groups developed the plan. A public hearing and discussion takes place on June 3 before the board, with the approval vote on June 17. The Santa Clara County Office of Education will receive the finalized plan by June 30. The 50-page plan can be viewed at PAUSDLCAP. N Staff Writer Sue Dremann can be emailed at sdremann@

also be open in November. Of the three, Scharff is the only member who had said he plans to seek a second term. Shepherd and Holman have yet to announce their plans. The council has not yet decided when the new rule would kick in — a point on which the committee split Tuesday night. If members agree to make it effective immediately, as Klein advocated, the change would have a significant impact on this year’s council race because voters would still be asked to elect council members for five seats. Only three of them, however, would actually be seated if the measure passes. Scharff and Price both supported having the rule take effect in 2018, thereby creating a transition period. Though Klein initially opposed this delay, on Wednesday

he told the Weekly that he will support the later kick-in date because he doesn’t want to confuse the voters in November. The commitee also split on a separate proposal by Klein and Schmid to swear newly elected council members in earlier. In a February 2013 memo, the pair called for inducting new council members on the first calendar day of the year, as opposed to the first business Monday, as under current practice. That would allow for more time in January to conduct business. But on Tuesday, they considered swearing members in even earlier, in December. Price and Scharff opposed that proposed change, saying that it benefited the city to have council members serving until the end of December to wrap up that year’s work. N

Cover Story



aura had her hands full last fall. She had broken up with her boyfriend, Mark, the week before. Since then, he had been stalking her at school, where he was a student too. He cut class to follow her to and from her classes, where he stared at her through the windows. He called her derogatory names like “bitch” and “whore,” pressured her to come back to him and barraged her with text messages. He also followed and harassed her on the way to and from school, Laura later told the police. Laura told Mark to leave her alone, to get away from her, that it was over; still he persisted. On the

way to school one morning, a neighbor overheard Laura yelling at him and called the school, concerned for Laura’s safety. A school administrator asked Laura about the incident. Laura assured the staff member that everything was under control. Laura thought she could handle it on her own. Later that week, after stalking her all day at school, Mark again pursued Laura on the way home from school, and she finally decided to phone for help. That’s when Mark attacked her. Witnesses in the neighborhood saw what was happening and stepped in immediately to stop him and call

the police. Still, Mark managed to pull Laura’s hair and head towards the ground and strike the back of her head with his hand, according to police records. The police arrived and arrested him. At the time of the attack, Sept. 20, Laura and Mark (not their real names) were Gunn High School students. What happened between them is a very common pattern of behavior and a classic example of teen dating violence, according to Emily Austin, a staff lawyer with Peace Over Violence, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of teen dating violence.

Editor’s note

Are our schools ready when relationships turn violent? by Terri Lobdell

The Weekly is publishing this article on dating violence to examine how and whether Palo Alto schools are equipped to handle situations of harassment and assault between students. It was undertaken with the consent and cooperation of the family of a Gunn High School student who last fall was harassed and attacked by her ex-boyfriend and who later filed a complaint with the federal Office for Civil Rights alleging the school violated Title IX in its handling of the matter. Superintendent Kevin Skelly declined numerous requests to participate in interviews for this article or provide answers to questions. Through spokesperson Tabitha Kappeler-Hurley he indicated no other district or Gunn officials would comment. Skelly and Kappeler-Hurley said they would be unable to discuss the topic of dating violence, how schools are trained to handle these situations, what resources schools have available to them or other topics related to the implementation of policy without at the same time revealing specific confidential student information. “This is based on the need to be confidential about student information,” Kappeler-Hurley said. Skelly commented: “I am uncomfortable adding more scrutiny of the students involved in the situation.” Skelly instead provided general written information about school policies and prevention efforts related to sexual harassment. He also said he didn’t think it was appropriate to run this story at this time, citing the ongoing Office for Civil Rights investigation. N

Cover Story

Dating violence: What parents, other adults can do



According to Austin and other experts, the biggest threat of violence is after a break-up, a time of great volatility. Violence within a dating relationship is not rare. Each year, about one in 10 teenagers suffers from physical violence at the hands of a boyfriend or girlfriend, according to the national Centers for Disease Control. However, often it is not recognized as a serious, widespread problem — threatening the mental, physical and educational health of many teens — as most incidents go unreported, unnoticed or minimized, according to experts in the field. Research shows that the longterm consequences of dating abuse are more severe for young women, who are more frequently victimized — though young men too can be victims, as can partners in same-sex relationships, where the tendency to report is even lower due to added stigma and fear of being “outed,” according to experts. “Many young victims do not recognize warning signs and confuse controlling behaviors as a sign of care. Fear and shame discourage victims from seeking help, and when they do, adults often minimize the potential for harm,” according to a Fact Sheet from California Assemblyman Ricardo Lara’s office, a legislative leader on this issue. In 2012 Lara sponsored a bill to promote dating-abuse prevention programs and policies in schools, citing a “serious gap” in the Education Code. The proposed legislation, which is still pending, was in response to a teenage girl killed on school grounds in Lara’s district, as well as other publicized dating-related violent attacks. In addition to proposed legislation, Peace Over Violence and an-

other nonprofit, California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (CPEDV), are partnering with the California Department of Education and California School Boards Association on a project, “Delta Focus,” to promote school environments that support healthy relationships and prevent adolescent dating abuse. The project includes development of policy resources for school boards, superintendents and other education stakeholders, according to Lisa Parks, CPEDV’s prevention program director. Whether dating abuse and violence occurs on or off school grounds, it “can have devastating effects on academic achievement, campus safety and positive development ... (because) teens in a dating relationship also see each other at school and their violent association can cause a severe safety hazard to themselves and other students,” according to a report Austin co-authored with the California Attorney General’s Office, “Guide to Addressing Teen Dating and Sexual Violence in a School Setting.” (See sidebar: “Dating violence: What parents, other adults can do.”)


aura and Mark were lucky in one way. Residents near Gunn noticed the problem, took immediate action and put a stop to the violence. They also exposed for the first time the dangerous dynamic in the teenagers’ relationship. The adults now were the ones with their hands full. The steps that followed, especially between Laura’s parents and school officials, illustrate the difficult issues faced when dating relationships turn violent. Within a six-week period, the parents and the school wrestled over the following: ■ Whether the school should

have called Laura’s parents or taken other proactive steps when the neighbor called the school concerned about Laura’s safety; ■ Whether the school was obligated to follow the terms of a 300-yard stay-away court order, which would have made it impossible for Mark and Laura to attend the same school; ■ Whether the school could (or should) transfer Mark to Palo Alto High School; ■ Whether the school’s proposed accommodations to allow Mark to continue to attend Gunn (assigning Mark and Laura walking routes at school, having security staff monitor Laura, etc.) were sufficient to ensure Laura’s safety; ■ Whether the school could/ should discipline Mark for any of his alleged misconduct on campus and/or to and from school. “Getting to yes” with the school district proved difficult, stressful and time-consuming, Laura’s mother said. It required many emails, phone calls, meetings, research of school policies and Internet resources, consultations with private attorneys, the police and the district attorney. During the process, the family felt a continual sense of urgency to get an effective safety plan in place in time for Mark’s release at a date uncertain, possibly imminent. Instead of being able to rely on the district as their ally, the family said they found themselves fighting an uphill battle in an effort to keep their daughter safe. They increasingly turned to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office and Probation Department for help; by early November, those offices were able to facilitate an agreement with Mark’s family that he transfer to another school. The court also renewed for three

ach year, one in 10 American teenagers suffers from physical violence at the hands of a boyfriend or girlfriend, according to President Obama’s proclamation declaring February “National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month” for the fourth consecutive year. The national Centers for Disease Control 2011 survey showed 9.4 percent of high school students reporting being hit, slapped or physically hurt on purpose by their boyfriend or girlfriend in the last 12 months. Despite its prevalence, adults are often unaware that teens experience dating violence, the CDC’s website states. According to CDC and other experts, this is due to shame, stigma, fear of retaliation, lack of awareness, and adults’ tendency to minimize issues if reported. Advice for adults: When a young person discloses abuse in a dating relationship* ■ Approach without judging sexual or relationship choices ■ Don’t assume sexual orientation or gender identity ■ Be honest about your ability to keep information confidential ■ Don’t control the situation, unless an emergency requires you to

years the protective order requiring Mark to stay 300 yards away from Laura at all times, including her school, making it impossible for him to return to Gunn without violating the order. The family was grateful and relieved and credited the criminal justice system with making the right thing happen. School officials appeared to share the relief. “The good thing is the kid is in school in (another city), far away from the district and this young lady,” Superintendent Kevin Skelly wrote in an email to Board of Education member Melissa Baten Caswell. But while the situation eventually resolved for Laura, Laura’s mother, a long-time PTA volunteer, today expresses her lack of confidence in the Palo Alto school district’s ability — or willingness — to be proactive in protecting a victim from further danger. She said she worries about the next victim of harassment, stalking and violence, especially if he or she chooses not to pursue criminal charges, which many victims are reluctant to do for a variety of reasons.

Is there good reason to believe the schools will handle things differently in the future? With the past as an indicator, Laura’s mother has doubt. (See online sidebar: “Women tell of partners who harassed, assaulted them.”) Since the fall, Laura’s parents have had time to digest their experience and learn more about the school’s obligations under state and federal laws, including duties to investigate fully as soon as the school is on notice about possible sexual harassment and to take prompt and effective actions to provide remedies for victims, like their daughter, caught in a hostile environment at school. They believe those obligations were not recognized or fulfilled in their daughter’s case and that the school, especially after being alerted by the neighbor’s call prior to the attack, might have helped prevent further harassment and violence. In March, Laura’s family filed a complaint alleging Title IX violations with the federal Of(continued on next page)

fice for Civil Rights (OCR) and provided the Weekly with a copy of its complaint, which included a detailed statement of facts, copies of emails with school officials and the district attorney, and other documentation. The Office for Civil Rights opened an investigation at Gunn on March 24. (See online sidebar: “Title IX issues raised in latest federal civil-rights case.”) Laura’s family decided to share its story with the Weekly to help others who might face similar situations in the future. Laura’s parents asked that their identities, and certain identifying details, be kept anonymous to protect the privacy of Laura and Mark.


hen Mark was taken into custody, the first issue that came up was how to keep him away from Laura, especially at school. The police helped the family obtain an emergency court order restraining Mark from coming within 300 yards of her; the order was effective for seven days (the maximum time available without a full court hearing). The police told Laura’s family that Mark could be released at any time. If that occurred within the next week, the temporary order would protect her, they advised, including preventing Mark from being at school because it would be impossible to stay the full 300 yards apart there. This general advice was confirmed by Palo Alto Police Department school liaison officer DuJuan Green; he told the Weekly that court protective orders must be obeyed by the restrained party, including on school grounds, or risk arrest and prosecution for violation. In the meantime, the family was urged to pursue a more permanent court order, which they did. After the arrest, as Laura’s mother listened to what Laura was telling the police officer, she learned a number of facts for the first time. She learned about the extent of Mark’s escalating verbal abuse and harassment after the break-up. She also learned about the stalking at school and en route to school, the concerned neighbor’s call to the school, and Gunn Assistant Principal Trinity Klein’s meeting with Laura about the call. Laura’s mother was especially upset that she had not been notified about the call; she later let Klein know that.

In response, Klein emailed: “I asked (Laura) very direct questions about their relationship and her safety, and she gave me every assurance that things were under control, she didn’t need help, and she wasn’t concerned about him hurting her. Unfortunately, I took her at her word. “In hindsight, I too wish I had contacted you. At that time I did not know (all the facts) and (Laura) gave me every assurance that what was overheard was an isolated argument between a couple in a committed relationship.” After finishing up with the police on the day of the attack, Laura’s mother went directly to Gunn and hand-delivered the restraining order to Principal Katya Villalobos, told her about the past week’s harassment and stalking leading up to the attack that afternoon, and requested that the order be enforced whenever Mark was released. Villalobos said Klein would be handling the matter but was gone for the day (a Friday) and would call Laura’s mother on Monday. Klein called on Monday, and

Laura’s mother briefed her as well on the past week’s events. Klein told her that the school was not required to observe the restraining order because Mark had a right to attend Gunn regardless of the order. Klein also said that Gunn had had a previous case with a 300yard restraining order in which the school didn’t follow the specified yardage but instead followed the “spirit” of the order. Laura’s mother was stunned to hear this. Laura’s parents did not think Mark could be trusted on the same campus with her and had been counting on the protection order to help keep her safe at school. Laura’s parents decided to appeal their concerns to higher-level officials. In a Sept. 28 email to Villalobos and Skelly requesting a meeting that week, they wrote: “I know when (Mark) sees (Laura) at school, he’ll be way too tempted to try to talk to her ... and I know that will just escalate again.” It would “be best for both parties” if Mark were transferred to Paly, they said. “We need a plan that can be executed immediately to ensure (Laura’s) safety.” Klein replied by email: “This is not the kind of situation Dr. Skelly would be involved in, nor Ms. Villalobos.” Klein reiterated that she and Gunn Assistant Principal James Lubbe were “your point people until the situation demands otherwise, if it ever does.” Laura’s mother emailed Skelly again: “As Trinity has replied, she does not think that this warrants your attention. However, as a parent, I disagree.” She said she wanted to be sure

he was informed of the situation. Skelly didn’t respond. In a later email sent to Katherine Baker, the district’s secondary schools director, Laura’s mother said: “Believe me, when a parent is told it does not warrant their

time after their daughter is assaulted, it does not help the situation.” Meanwhile, Laura’s mother did not accept the school’s information about not following the protective order. She checked again with the police, did Internet research and consulted two local attorneys; no one agreed with the school’s position. One Palo Alto attorney consulted was Emma Bradford. Bradford told the Weekly she was “incredibly surprised by the school’s initial reaction” that it could be exempt from the letter of the 300yard court order. “This is an unfounded idea,” she said.

“No one wants any student to lose out on education, or to get into more legal trouble by violating an order, so there is a need to help support that restrained student as well as the protected student,” she said. “But at the same time, the school needs to be proactive in meeting these obligations. It can’t just sit back. If the order is unworkable and the school feels stuck, it can’t ignore the order. It needs to work it out with the judge, who is the ultimate authority on crafting the order so that all interests are protected,” Bradford said. Bradford said she has seen a number of cases in which these issues have come up in other schools and the first response has been “This is not our problem” or “We can’t do anything.” She said she thinks schools may be misinformed about their differing obligations to both students and need more guidance about how to reconcile these obligations. Neena Chaudhry, senior counsel with the National Women’s Law Center, told the Weekly that the first thing schools should do in cases like this is launch their own Title IX investigation, led by the district’s designated “Title IX coordinator” (in Palo Alto, this is Associate Superintendent Charles Young, who was not involved in this case, according to Laura’s mother). Chaudhry suggested that given the basic facts of this case, a full investigation probably should have commenced after the neighbor’s call alerting officials there might be a problem (whether or not the victim cooperated) or at the very least after the attack occurred. The investigative findings by the Title IX coordinator, who

is required to have specialized training, would help shape the ultimate remedies, including the need to follow any court protection order, she said. “Their hands are not tied,” Chaudhry said. “If they had concerns about how to implement remedies, they could go to the police, the court or the OCR for advice. There are ways to figure it out. They need to be proactive to keep students safe in their learning environment. “No one wants to transfer kids from one school to another lightly,” she said, but at the same time, she doesn’t think students have a right to attend one school over another within a district, especially if safety and hostile environment issues are at stake. These are determinations that need to be made in conjunction with a full investigation, she said. (See online sidebar: “Title IX issues raised in latest federal civil-rights case.”)


n a phone conversation on Sept. 30, as confir-ent committed to supporting and protecting (Laura). In doing so, we also have to follow the laws that govern our work.” She reiterated that “transferring (Mark) to another school without the request coming from the family itself is an expulsion. ... (Mark) has not done anything that would warrant an expulsion.” Klein’s assertion about transfers proved incorrect. Transferring a student to another comprehensive high school in the district does not require grounds for expulsion because unlike suspension or expulsion, “an involuntary transfer does not deny access to public education,” a legal principle affirmed in a recent California ap-

pellate court decision. According to several legal experts consulted by the Weekly, reasonable justification (which could include, but not be limited to, disciplinary grounds or threat to another student) is sufficient, as long as the

district has “substantial evidence” to back its decision. Secondary Schools Director Baker, when contacted a few weeks later by Laura’s mother for help, described her understanding of what was required for the transfer process: “We cannot transfer a student to another school without going through a process that justifies the transfer. The restraining order would be a crucial piece in considering a transfer.” One reason Klein thought that Mark could not be suspended or expelled was that she mistakenly thought the Sept. 20 attack had occurred in Laura’s home, even though Laura’s mother had dis-

cussed the assault with Klein and written to her about it. This mistaken assumption came to light in an Oct. 3 email from Klein, two weeks after the attack. Eventually Klein was set straight about this. Three weeks after the attack, Laura’s parents and school officials (Klein and Lubbe) finally met. By this time, Laura’s family had retained a lawyer, and they let the school know this. Meanwhile, Mark was still in custody, but no one knew for how much longer. Laura’s parents talked in this meeting about the danger they felt Laura would be in if Mark returned to campus, given past behaviors, and how upset Laura was at the prospect. Also they said they had learned that Mark had already disregarded the protection order by phoning Laura repeatedly from the juvenile detention center. Disciplinary options were discussed, though no action plan was formulated at the meeting. Klein still did not think any discipline was warranted, even if the assault occurred on the way home from school because, as she explained it, Mark had cut classes that week and so wasn’t “in school” even though he was allegedly on campus stalking Laura. Klein said his failure to attend classes rendered any misconduct on those days outside the school’s disciplinary jurisdiction. Klein also said that even if the school had jurisdiction, discipline would need to be approached progressively, so the more serious measures of suspension (or expulsion) were not available even in that case. Laura’s mother was skeptical; Klein’s explanation did not seem

logical or fair to her, she told the Weekly. It seemed to her like the school was foot-dragging.


eace Over Violence attorney Austin and other dating violence experts say reluctance to take action is a common school response where concerns about the aggressor’s rights traditionally loom larger than concerns about protecting the victim. “Schools traditionally have fought a lot of battles around a perpetrator’s right to access education,” Austin said. “As a result, victims’ circumstances are not weighed as heavily in many instances.” Fear of legal battles over disciplinary and transfer issues often overwhelm concerns about liability to victims under Title IX or state tort law, which are less familiar legal territory to schools, she said. Victims are commonly expected by schools to make more concessions than perpetrators, Austin said. In these cases, accommodations such as walking routes, security detail and chang-

ing classrooms are common. If a school change is necessary for safety, often it is the victims who end up making the switch. Other experts agree. “I’d estimate in about 90 percent of cases, it is seen as easier to ask the victim to make concessions, even though the law may require otherwise,” Kelley Hampton of nonprofit “Break the Cycle” (which works with schools nationwide) told the Weekly. Schools have a duty to comply with court orders, Hampton said, but in her experience, some do and some don’t. She said her organization tries to bring schools “into awareness that it’s not just liability involved, but it’s also about preventing future violence” that could affect all students at a school. The ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project is a leading legal expert in this area. According to staff attorney Sandra Park: “A school can’t unilaterally decide not to follow the terms of a court order.” If that order has been made, she said, there has been a court finding that the restrained party is a threat to the protected party within the specified yardage, and the school “needs to deal with that legal reality.” “The OCR’s letter on this is an important tool to educate schools about this,” she said, referring to the Office for Civil Right’s 2011 “Dear Colleague Letter” about sexual harassment and violence.


fter Laura’s family met with Klein and Lubbe, the school decided it could suspend Mark for the Sept. 20 incident. Klein’s Oct. 14 email conveying this information did not offer a reason for this reversal, but Klein later explained to Laura’s mother that she had found a teacher Mark talked to at school on Sept. 20, so therefore Mark was “in school” that day after all, allowing the school to discipline, according to the Office for Civil Rights complaint documents. On Oct. 17, county deputy district attorney Barbara Cathcart confirmed in an email to Laura’s mother that it was the judge’s policy in all juvenile domestic violence cases to issue a standard three-year, 300-yard stay-away protection order if the juvenile admits to or is found to have committed any of the charged offens(continued on next page)

es. She indicated that this would mean that the two teens could not attend the same school. “In fact, it would probably be impossible,” she said. Laura’s mother relayed this and other Cathcart updates over the next few days to Klein. On Oct. 21, Laura’s mother also let Klein know that if Mark were to be released with a 300-yard order, as expected, and the school allowed him back on campus, that she would call the police and they would arrest him on campus. Klein replied within the hour: “You are correct that we can require a change of placement if the restraining order is over 300 yards.” The next morning, Oct. 22, Klein spoke directly with Cathcart. Following that conversation, Klein took the “following precautionary steps” documented in an email to Laura’s mother: communicating with Mark and his family that Mark was not to come to campus at this time and outlining next steps for a meeting off campus; informing pertinent school staff that Mark was not permitted on campus and how to respond if he were seen; exploring options for alternative school environments; filing a suspension for the Sept. 20 attack; and sending an email to all of Laura’s teachers advising them of the situation. Laura’s parents were gratified and relieved at Klein’s turnaround and willingness, finally, to take clear, assertive actions to protect Laura. Baker also emailed her assurances: “I believe (Trinity) is on top of this situation. ... At this point the boy is not permitted on campus, and we are exploring every option to ensure that (Laura) remains safe at school.” Laura’s mother replied: “I do appreciate that Trinity has been much more communicative and helpful in the past week or so. But it was a rough start, and I think some of the legal statements she made ... were too quickly stated before checking facts. And because it took us so long to actually meet with her, some of the facts of the case she had wrong (like the fact that the assault did not happen at my house ...). Just seemed like knee-jerk statements in the beginning, but I do agree that much improvement has been made.” The final disposition hearing occurred Nov. 5, resulting in the expected three-year, 300-yard protection order, Mark’s release and his attendance at a new school.


week later, Laura’s parents sent an email to the school board and Skelly. They characterized the school’s handling of their case as “pitiful” and listed areas they believed to be in need of improvement, including: better staff training on what to do (and whom to consult) when legal or other difficult issues arise; better communication among school staff

(especially regarding multiple incidents of misconduct involving the same student); better communication between school staff and parents (especially if safety issues are suspected, as when the concerned neighbor called the school about Laura); and more effective use of discipline and measures to ensure victim safety. “Maybe our feedback can help the next family that faces a bullying/assault issue in our district. They shouldn’t have to endure the same mistreatment,” Laura’s parents wrote. They believe that parents should be able to rely on the school for accurate, expert information and clear protocols for handling such a crisis. Not every family will have the resources or inclination to involve law enforcement or private attorneys to help them persevere. Shortly after emailing the board, Laura’s mother heard for the first time from Skelly, who called and then emailed: “(We) will be seeing what we can learn from the experience. I for one will be changing my practice of asking staff members at sites to respond on my behalf to making contact directly with whoever has a concern.” Baker also called Laura’s mother; that conversation was reported to Caswell (with whom Laura’s mother had earlier met to ask for help) by email the next

day: “Katherine (Baker) admitted that this boy could have been considered for expulsion since it was a serious enough offense ... something Trinity told me no way could be done, even though I pointed out (information to the contrary) in the school handbook. ... So Katherine said that she will be sure to tell Trinity that in the future when something serious like this arises, to be sure to escalate to Katherine right away so it will be handled better.” Laura’s mother disputed this point to Caswell, saying that district officials “knew all along (of the situation’s seriousness) and still just backed Trinity up.” She concluded: “I can’t see where anything will ever change in this district.” On Nov. 23 Laura’s mother wrote Skelly, Baker and Villalobos: “I am willing to meet if gaining more information would help to ensure this fiasco did not happen again.” Ten days later, she re-sent the email, having heard no response. The next day, Dec. 4, she heard from Skelly. In their final phone call, Laura’s mother said he declined to meet, saying: “No, thanks. I think we’re good.” N Editor’s note: Freelance writer Terri Lobdell is married to Weekly Publisher Bill Johnson. She can be emailed at tlobdell@

Keeping the tradition alive Palo Alto-based West Bay Opera perseveres through tough times

he mood is positively electric in Lucie Stern Community Theatre’s large backstage green room. Singers in plain clothes, partial- and full-costume run through lastminute exercises; across the hall, a thick cloud of hairspray hangs in the air of the small dressing room where a pair of makeup artists are adjusting wigs and feverishly applying the final touches to the actors’ already paint-caked faces; fancifully dressed children and adults rush to and fro, and the orchestra begins playing. It’s the first of two “full-orchestra dress rehearsals” in the run up to the May 23 debut of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera, “The Magic Flute” — the third and final production of the Palo Alto-based West Bay Opera’s 58th season. Watching from the back of the theater — hearing the singers project their pure and powerful voices over the 24-piece orchestra — it’s hard to believe that the company would have trouble filling seats. Indeed, the upcoming run of shows is nearly sold out. However, it wasn’t that long ago that many believed the West Bay Opera would shutter. After the dot-com bubble burst the company was in a “severe financial crisis,” according to Joel Blank, a long-time West Bay Opera board member. Blank, who is currently serving as treasurer on the board, says WBO never fully recovered and was hit hard again by the Great Recession. West Bay Opera hasn’t been alone in its plight, Blank notes.

“All the major opera companies in the country are under financial stress.” In October of 2013, the New York City Opera announced that it could no longer keep its doors open. After filing for bankruptcy, the 70-year-old company cut its final season short and threw in the towel. The San Diego Opera barely managed to avoid the same fate. After pleading for help earlier this year, the company only recently announced that it would be able to remain open, though at a greatly reduced scale. West Bay Opera has remained open thanks in large part to the efforts of José Luis Moscovich, Blank says. “I think José Luis led the company back from difficult times.” West Bay Opera’s general director was brought on in July of 2006, about a year after the previous director, David Sloss, left for, as Blank puts it, “artistic differences.” (Blank is clear that he does not blame Sloss in any way for the company’s hard years.) Since joining West Bay Opera eight years ago, Moscovich has brought both laser focus and grand, sweeping ambition to the company, Blank says. In an interview with the Weekly shortly after he was hired, Moscovich said that he keeps track of all company costs — no matter how small. “I know the cost of buttons,” he told former A&E editor Rebecca Wallace. At the same time he began tightening the budget, Moscovich

He also invested in technology, such as the company’s digital projector that is now used to augment sets — saving money on the manpower and materials. “I think he’s raised the level of what we’ve done,” says Blank, who has been involved with West Bay Opera since 1999. Recalling his decision to push for more established, bigger-name singers, as opposed to younger, local talent, and to tackle tougher, larger-scale productions, Moscovich remembers the backlash he faced. “People thought I was out of my mind,” he says with a chuckle. But his gambit payed off. “That not only kept a good

portion of our audience with us, it also attracted a great deal more people to see what we do.” In addition to the budgetary concerns currently facing West Bay Opera and other companies around the country, attracting new, younger audiences is another major challenge. Kirk Eichelberger, a bass singer who plays the role of Sarastro in the upcoming West Bay Opera production, acknowledges the problem. “The issue is that opera in our

culture has been painted this way — as something that is for a fuddy-duddy, moneyed, upper crust crowd — that the people who are young and poor have no business with,” Eichelberger says. In a sense, those who perceive opera to be old and somewhat inflexible are correct. The art form dates back to the 16th century and hews tightly to many of the traditions established by its forebears. The players, whom a lay person might simply call “extras” — those who come on and off stage, infrequently and have no speaking or singing roles — are referred to as “supernumeraries” in the world of opera; while most modern theaters are equipped with sound systems capable of amplifying the human voice, an opera is not an opera unless all of the singers perform without the aid of microphones; this tradition necessitates a method of singing, which results in a tone quite unlike the nasal voices to which fans of popular music are accustomed. However, while Eichelberger acknowledges all this, the singer sees no reason that opera should be perceived as old and stuffy. Opera, he says, just like all good ­Vœ˜Ìˆ˜Õi`ʜ˜Ê˜iÝÌÊ«>}i®

Worth a Look Pop-up gallery: otherworldly forms

Foothill stages ancient Greek satire

Local pop-up art gallery Pace Menlo Park recently opened the doors to its latest exhibition, “Tara Donovan: Untitled,” located in the former Tesla dealership at 300 El Camino Real in Menlo Park. The collection, which includes Donovan’s pieces from 2000 to present, showcases a number of the artist’s large-scale creations made from mass-produced materials. “For artwork, it’s the perfect place,” said Elizabeth Sullivan, director of Pace Menlo Park, of the old dealership. As the exhibit is part of a pop-up gallery, it will be dismantled as quickly as it was erected — at the end of June, staff will cart its pieces back to New York and the building will embrace an as”Untitled (Mylar),” a yet unknown fate. Until then, Silicon 2011 sculpture of Mylar Valley can appreciate the and hot glue by Tara airy building in a new Donovan. way — as a backdrop for Donovan’s striking single-material structures, all fabricated from repetitive applications of commonplace objects like clear plastic buttons, toothpicks and metal straight pins. “It’s very organic and really works with the light so beautifully,” Sullivan said of Donovan’s work. Sullivan added that she’ll often roll up the gallery’s garage doors just so the pieces can play with the sunlight. Donovan’s pieces often recall organic forms and can be likened to coral reefs, delicate stalagmites or billowy cloud cover. Donovan also plays with perception and scale, creating towering works of shimmering Mylar and full-wall installations that span hundreds of square feet.

Foothill College’s Theater Arts program is preparing to debut its performance of Aristophanes’ Ancient Greek comedy “The Assembly-Women,” a play that director and Department Chair Tom Gough appreciates for both its humor and relevance. “Issues may have changed, but behaviors are 2,400 years From left: Nikita Sethi, old,” said Gough, Nicolae Muntean, Suzie referring to the Poulson and Kimberly Johnson play, which de- perform in “The AssemblyWomen,” by Aristophanes. buts May 23. The production follows Athens’ concerned female citizens and the drastic measures they take to right their government’s wrongs. Unsatisfied with the allmale citizen assembly that continually thrusts their society into war, the play’s heroines cross-dress as their husbands to take down the irrational laws put in place by their male counterparts. The result? “A whirlpool of satire,” Gough said, adding that the play “flatters and denigrates both genders.” For theatergoers looking for a laugh, bawdy jokes counter the play’s insightful and thought-provoking elements. Gough admitted that part of the reason he liked the play was that it appealed to his juvenile side — that which appreciates cross-dressing as a never-fail comedy staple. Comedy aside, Gough remarked on the play’s reflexive qualities that illuminate the similarities between our ancestors and ourselves. The show’s ensemble — all Foothill College students, most of whom are full-time — includes local players from East Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Los Altos and Portola Valley, among others. The play is scheduled to run from May 23 through June 8. Thursday shows begin at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday shows start at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for general admission, and $14 for students and seniors.

art, confronts the human condition and has the power to move audiences. All it takes is one strong performance. “If we can get people to the opera, they will come back,” he says. Even if those people are boys on the edge of adolescence. At 11 years old, Aidan Bannon might not seem like someone who would enjoy the opera. And yet, the Palo Alto boy’s eyes light up when talking about his role in “The Magic Flute.” Aidan is a member of the San Francisco-based Ragazzi Boys Chorus. While many of his peers spend their after-school hours playing sports, engaging in clubs or in front of a PlayStation 4, Aidan practices hitting harmonies.

“I wouldn’t really call singing a tough sport,” Aidan says, before changing his mind. “Actually, it’s probably harder than sports. There’s so much more that you can mess up on.” Aidan is one of six Ragazzi Boys who were invited to be a part of the West Bay Opera production. From its very first production, “The Magic Flute” has always called for a small chorus of boys to play the characters known as the Three Spirits, who sing the treble lines in the opera. As such, Stefanie Wilen, the mother of another Ragazzi boy, Jesse, notes that singing in this production is a “once in a lifetime opportunity.” The vast majority of males can only hit notes on the treble cleft prior to adolescence. And con-





sidering their age and experience level, Wilen notes that her son and his peers are “at the top of their game as trebles” right now. Moscovich is certainly pleased to be able fill the role of the Three Spirits with the Ragazzi Boys — and not only because it is what the original opera calls for. He hopes that having the boys in the performance will help to perpetuate the operatic tradition he loves so much. “If you come into the theater with your kids, and ... they see other kids on stage, they can automatically imagine themselves on stage,” Moscovich says. “It demystifies opera for children, because it shows that other kids are not just able to be on stage, but also can sing very well and can be in it with the grown ups.” N

were popular in the early 20th century, went extinct with Prohibition, were rejuvenated in the 1950s, and now, here they are again. Scholz Beer Garten in Austin, Texas, on the other hand, has been in continuous operation since 1866. In this cycle, the food is as important as the drink. Top-notch chefs have helped beer gardens gain traction as destination eateries. At Bierhaus, owner Mike Finley brought in Aubree Arndt as executive chef. Arndt, a Scottsdale Culinary Institute grad, apprenticed in Colorado before cooking stints at several highly regarded Bay Area restaurants. Bierhaus offers semi-fast food. Order at the indoor window and the food comes in about five minutes or so, just enough time to quaff some brew. Service staff takes over after that and supplies condiments, utensils and whatever else is needed. Food arrives on china; utensils are stainless

The beef is sourced from the sustainable Marin Sun Farms, is 100 percent grass-fed and pasture-raised and is ground in-house daily. The fat Bierhaus burger ($12.50) came with white cheddar cheese, bacon, Russian dressing, caramelized onions, house-made pickles and wholegrain mustard. The moist beef had loads of flavor. It was perfect housed in a soft bun, baked to spec by Palo Alto Bakery. The amped-up spicy burger ($11.50) with pepper jack cheese, poblano chilies, chipotle aioli, house-made pickles and wholegrain mustard rivaled the Bierhaus burger in quality and size. The meat was neither greasy nor chewy, nor did it have that grassy


Noise level: moderate


eer, burgers and bratwurst. That’s the amiable combination at Bierhaus, the former Steak Out restaurant on Castro Street in downtown Mountain View. Bierhaus boasts 40 bottled beers plus 18 more on tap. That’s a lot of suds. Beer attracts men; beer plus good food, plus an agreeable outdoor patio that seats about 250, attracts women as well. During my visits, the ratio was about 60 to 40, men to women, not a bad ratio for any eat/drink place. Rechristened in late November, Bierhaus joined the growing list of craft beer-centric eateries downtown — Tied House, Steins and Buffalo, but only Steins and Bierhaus have beer gardens. The term “beer garden” comes from the German biergarten first popularized in Bavaria. The exact history is a rather murky evolution that involved royal decrees, brewing regulations, hot summers, the state of the brewing art, big versus small brewers, picnickers versus restaurant-goers, and other complexities, and reaches back as far back as the mid-16th century. In the United States, beer gardens were a product of the Gilded Age with opulent styles. According to historian Maureen Ogle, Schlitz Garden, built in 1879 by the Schlitz brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, featured a concert hall, dance pavilion, bowling alley and three-story pagoda that provided spectacular views of the city. Pabst and Miller also built gardens to promote their products. Concepts cycle through cultures at intervals. Beer gardens

and a small green salad, or $3.50 for the sweet potato garlic fries and salad (the better bet, flavor-wise.). Bierhaus also offers groundlamb burgers (also from Marin Sun Farms), turkey burgers and


veggie burgers. Building your own burger is another option with choices of sauces, cheeses and toppings. There were also snacks for sharing. The crispy pork belly ($10) with roasted Brussels

sprouts and walnut rutabaga puree revved the appetite. There were spätzles and pretzels, bratwurst and a butcher platter featuring meats and cheeses. The house-made bratwurst ($8.95) with braised red cabbage, German potato salad and whole-grain mustard was plump and meaty. Bratwurst does not have bold flavors and is more about what goes on the sausage than the sausage itself. Beermeister and partner Scott Snyder assembled the beverage

"6 Ê/ Blended -1/2 (Century 16) Sometimes Adam Sandler works for others (notably Paul Thomas Anderson and Judd Apatow) and makes an interesting and sophisticated film. Mostly, though, he churns out branded “Adam Sandler comedies,” in which he doubles as both producer and star. “Blended” is one of the latter — proudly and pointedly credited as “A Frank Coraci Movie” (not a “film,” nerds!). As per the Sandler-Coraci formula, then, “Blended” is shamelessly, relentlessly crass and/or manipulative, wholly commercial and utterly conventional. But established formula endures because it works, not so much on an artistic level, but certainly with audiences who don’t mind a cinematic Happy Meal. Sandler plays Jim, a widower and clueless single father to three daughters, whom he has languishing in dowdy “pageboy Prince Valiant” haircuts and unflattering polo shirts and sweatpants. As a teenager, Hilary (Bella Thorne) suffers these indignities the worst, with Dad calling her “Lary” and teen boys constantly mistaking her for a bro. Meanwhile, tween Espn (Emma Fuhrmann) — yep, named after the cable sports outlet — communes constantly with “Invisible Mommy” (oh dear), and Lou (Alyvia Alyn Lind) earns her keep as a cornucopia of cuteness and emotional truth-telling. The film opens with Jim boorishly botching a date with divorcée Lauren (Drew Barrymore, in her third pairing with Sandler). She’s got two hellion sons who are rebelling against their neglectful father (Joel McHale) and mom’s tight reign: As a professional closet organizer, she’s anal retentive for a living. Why, those boys need a father! Those girls need a mother! Those singles need each other! And so these two wacky families find themselves on a collision course to becoming “Blended” when they accidentally wind up sharing a South African vacation package and bond over safaris and touristy tribal dancing. Surprisingly, “Blended” is not one of Sandler’s most racially offensive movies. Yes, it uncritically accepts the cartoon tourist-trap resort version of Africa, but there are such resorts, and folks enjoy their theme-park attractions just like the ugly Americans in this movie do (Kevin Nealon and Jessica Lowe play two of the ugliest, the embarrassing parents of Hilary’s teen love interest).

this movie? Yes (Terry Crews enthusiastically plays one of them), but when every supporting character is a cartoonish stereotype, this can only be called equal opportunity. As always, Barrymore proves extremely appealing — she’s far better than her material here — and Sandler can do his laconic comedy and mawkish melodrama in his sleep at this point. Though the whimsy is forced, small children will certainly appreciate the broad humor (and Barrymore’s mercenary but sweet rendition of “Over the Rainbow”). “Blended” could be so named because it purees your brain for two hours. Then again, maybe its sunny-mawkish family fantasy is what you and your kids need after a long week. Sure, you could do better with your hard-earned cash. But you’ll receive no judgment here.

(Century 20) With the recent glut of superhero movies and television shows, many have been waiting for the bubble to pop. Since most superhero movies follow fairly rigid formulas, it would seem to be only a matter of time before audiences get pooped out watching them. But the best superhero movies in some way work against the grain, like Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies (Gothic films grounded in an urban crime aesthetic and global sociopolitics) or Bryan Singer’s X-Men films, which draw on a constellation of interesting characters and play on a scale epic not only for action but in cultural, political and historical implications. You just aren’t getting any of that in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” or “Man of Steel.” And so we come to “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which restores Singer to the director’s chair of the franchise he launched with 2000’s “X-Men.” The new film serves as sequel to Brett Ratner’s much-maligned “X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006) and Matthew Vaughn’s 2011 franchise reboot “X-Men: First Class,” for which Singer co-wrote the story and produced. A loose adaptation of the beloved two-part comic book story by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, “Days of Future Past”

wields time travel as the last hope for mutants, in 2023, facing a holocaust from the high-powered robotic Sentinels. A small band of survivors — including Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Storm (Halle Berry) — resolve to use the powers of Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send the consciousness of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back into his 1973 body. Then, Wolverine will seek out the younger Charles “Professor X” Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik “Magneto” Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) and enlist their help to stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from assassinating the creator of the Sentinels, Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and inadvertently ensuring his work gets fasttracked. Simple, right? It’s OK — take a deep breath. Though it doesn’t hurt to have seen the previous “X-Men” films, one of the miraculous strengths of the new film is its coherence once it gets rolling (partly owed to editor John Ottman). Another miraculous strength owes to that outstanding cast, further supplemented by Evan Peters (who owns a section of the film as super-speedster Quicksilver) and Nicholas Hoult (whose Beast gets ample screen time). With its high-stakes story and large cast of characters, the film keeps up its momentum with ease, and when it’s not hurtling through action, it’s never less than breezy, with plenty of humor balancing the darkness. On a character level, the story amounts to a battle for the souls of McAvoy’s Xavier, Fassbender’s Magneto, and the mutant in the middle, Lawrence’s Mystique. Simon Kinberg’s script is at its most interesting when playing these beats, especially given that the infamously impatient Wolverine can’t just slash his way to victory; rather, he has to learn to massage others’ troubles and finesse convincing words. Harkening back to his earlier “X-Men” films, Singer makes passing allusions to the Holocaust and gay pride, and gets his Oliver Stone on by adding plot points (and stylistic flourishes) involving the Kennedy assassination, Nixon and the Vietnam War. But what makes “X-Men: Days of Future Past” more than just a thrilling science-fiction action flick is the past-present poignancy allowed by time travel and astral projection, indulging everyone’s fantasy of telling a younger self what he or she needs to hear. Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense scifi violence and action, some suggestive material, nudity and language. Two hours, 11 minutes. — Peter Canavese

rowing up as an “army brat,” Pam Scott recalled moving around the country in her youth. While her state of residence continuously changed, one thing remained constant. “No matter where we lived my mom always had a veggie garden,” Scott said. Currently Scott is a volunteer teacher through Common Ground Organic Garden Supply and Education Center, teaching a class called “Hands-on Farming” from her Los Altos Hills home. She works alongside three other volunteers — Julie Hyde, Deane Shokes and Anna Teeples — focusing the class on a variety of skills from making soil to raising chickens. Scott wasn’t always so immersed in gardening. After studying industrial design at Auburn University, she became a creative ad consultant for large corporations, such as Nike. Today she primarily works with start-up and nonprofit companies. But when she moved to Northern California in 2003, she began taking classes at Common Ground. There her love of growing fruits and vegetables bloomed. “The class gave me a lot of confidence,” Scott said. “I got my gardening mojo.” She also began writing about food, foraging and how to maintain sustainable living, serving as

a contributor to Edible Magazine for the past year. After continuous practice and work, Scott’s 1-acre home is thriving with numerous greens like kale, basil and arugula as well as citrus trees. She explained a lot of

her garden’s success comes from maintaining great soil. “If your soil is not thriving, nothing will grow in your garden,” she said. The key to having great soil means having a lot of worms and

incorporating it with compost, she added. Scott makes compost by combining scraps from her kitchen, dryer and grass. “It feels good to bring everything back to the soil.” Scott has successfully grown more than half of the food that she and her husband eat. Some of her favorite foods grown in her garden are avocados, cherry tomatoes and pomegranate. Scott remarked that “to have a pomegranate right from the tree makes you swoon.” August, September and October are the most fruitful months out of the year for Scott’s garden. Her produce then is so excessive these months that it goes from her kitchen table to people who are less fortunate. For those who have their own gardens, Scott said, “Find a food bank near by, and take your surplus.” She explained that she gets as much out of sharing the wealth of healthy produce as watching her plants grow. Scott recalled going to the food bank and giving a little boy one of her cherry tomatoes and seeing his face light up with appreciation.

Positively Green by Iris Harrell saw a cartoon in a recent “Funny Times” that showed a huge pile of trash with a person sprawled on top of it, clearly inebriated, and on his back passed out. The caption read “Mankind trashes Earth ... loses security deposit.” I started to wonder who the new tenants of Earth might be after we humans get evicted. This was a not-so-funny and sobering thought. Earth’s stewardship and care has been the responsibility of humankind and we obviously need to “step up our game plan” and behave as if it were more of a life-and-death matter. When I left the country in mid-January to go to my first-ever safari in Africa, I was extremely concerned with how dry our local surrounding landscape and environment looked. I wondered what the implications might be if Silicon Valley became a desert. January landscape looking like July or August landscape is not a good sign. I am starting to become more concerned about the rapid signs of global warming that are reappearing more often, as if to emphasize the increased need of doing something to reverse these problems. While in Kenya, Africa, I saw firsthand so many women carrying drinking water in large containers on their backs back to their villages, and I realized more graphically how much our lives are affected when we don’t have quick, easy and reliable access to clean drinking and cooking water. We were advised to drink only imported bottled water for the entire length of our trip, so as not to get any waterborne sickness. We complied with religious fervor. Most of the bottles we drank from were plastic. A quandary arose. How do you re-use a plastic bottle when the only water you can drink is from another plastic bottle? There is a correlation between our trash and the quantity and quality of available drinking water. Our plastic,


Water is the new ‘oil’ non-biodegradable bags and bottles that we as consumers use are found in great quantities in our oceans, rivers and streams. One American shopper typically uses 500 bags a year. The new local ban on plastic bags is a good first step to curbing the multiple problems caused by a simple plastic bag. Plastic bags photo-degrade instead of biodegrade, breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits that contaminate our soil and waterways and enter the food web-chain when animals ingest them. It takes between 400 to 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down. More than 100,000 marine animal deaths are caused yearly because of plastic bags thrown carelessly into the waterways. These bags are mistaken for food. Ninety percent of the debris in our ocean is plastic. Plastic releases toxins in our soil, oceans, lakes and rivers. These toxins affect our drinking water sources and all the natural life living

‘We don’t want to be looked at as crazy, but somebody has to be the role model for good stewardship.’ in our waters. (We eat some of that “natural life.”) Producing plastic bags takes millions of gallons of petroleum (oil). So banning production of plastic bags could significantly reduce our carbon emissions, which, of course, is one of the biggest factors causing global warming. This destructive circle of bad behavior is spiraling into multiple problems for human “tenants.” So how hard is it to carry reusable bags into the grocery store? We don’t usually forget to brush our teeth or bathe. Improved green habits have to become more automatic for us. There are still plenty of stores putting your newly purchased product into a plastic bag. Are you going to feel like a fanatic saying “Please don’t give me a plastic bag”? These are the thoughts that go through our minds as we try to change our habits that we know we need

better-tasting, quality produce. “The sooner you can eat a tomato (for example) after it being picked the better it is,” she said, adding that type of quality cannot be found at a grocery store. Aside from tending to her garden, Scott also has a chicken coop, which produces a number of fresh eggs. She explained that she is not yet “an expert chicken mama,” but she is continuing to learn how to raise them and maintain a clean environment. Now with five years of teaching under her belt, Scott still considers herself just as much a student as a teacher. She remembers loving learning about gardening from her mother growing up. There is always something new to learn and different things to try, according to Scott. The current drought has afforded one of those learning experiences. “I am figuring out how little I can water my plants and seeing how much food I can get without stressing them out in this drought,” she said. The class is broken up into four sections, in which students have the

to execute faithfully. We don’t want to be looked at as crazy, but somebody has to be the role model for good stewardship. A 2012 Christian Science Monitor article called “Troubled Waters” effectively pointed out that the real issue is that we do not recognize water’s true value. The amount of water on our planet today is the same as when amphibians first came ashore. So how can we possibly have a water “crisis”? Only 2.5 percent of earth’s water is fresh water and two-thirds of that is locked away in glaciers and snow. As glaciers and icebergs merge with the salty ocean water, not only do we have less available drinking water options, we have rising sea levels, which is another set of problems related to water and humans. We are now using more of our fresh water underground aquifers to meet our needs. Many of these aquifers are nonrenewable. The ones that are renewable are being used so rapidly (like too many straws in the same glass of water) that they are being depleted faster than they can be replenished. What steps can we take as individuals, communities and a nation to fix these problems? 1. We need a national water policy and a state and local water policy that treats water as even more important than oil. 2. We need to be charged more for the water we use. This would give government agencies such as the Santa Clara Valley Water District more money to put into water conservation infrastructure. And we value what we have to pay more for. 3. Individually, we can make water conservation a top priority in our homes and businesses. (A constantly running toilet can waste 200 gallons of water a day.) Lastly, we can try to avoid getting evicted as Earth’s major tenant and most logical steward of Earth’s precious gifts.

opportunity to rotate and try different learning activities. There are activities based on raising chickens, making compost and doing strawbale gardening, in which soil is not needed and plants grow in bundles of hay. The class concludes with a tour of the farm. Scott teaches because she does it out of love and passion, she said. “I like seeing the lights go off in people, and seeing their reactions.” She admitted that gardening and farming is not simple or easy. “There is always something that doesn’t grow,” Scott said. “Expect failure and don’t be afraid of it. ... Gardening is an exercise of humility.” N Editorial Intern Melissa Landeros can be emailed at mlanderos@

Records provide fitting end to historic season

‘HALL’ FOR NELSON . . . Former Stanford football great Darrin Nelson has been selected to the 2014 College Football Hall of Fame class in an announcement made Thursday by the National Football Foundation. The 18th Stanford player to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, Nelson will be honored during the National Football Foundation’s annual awards dinner on Dec. 9 at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. Playing for legendary coach Bill Walsh between 1977-81, Nelson and the Cardinal introduced the “West Coast offense” that would revolutionize the game. Establishing a new vision for the running back position, Nelson was the first college football player to rush for more than 1,000 yards and catch at least 50 passes in a single season — a feat he accomplished three times at Stanford. He finished sixth in the 1981 Heisman Trophy voting and his impact is still reflected in today’s game. A four-time All-Pac-10 honoree and first team All-American, Nelson rushed for 4,033 yards at Stanford, set an NCAA record with 6,885 career all-purpose yards while scoring 40 touchdowns and catching 214 passes. After graduating from Stanford, Nelson went on to a very successful 11-year career in the National Football League.

he 2014 high school swimming and diving season is over, but hardly forgotten. It turned out to be one for the history books in many ways. In fact, there was history to be made at the Central Coast Section Championships last weekend at the George F. Haines International Swim Center in Santa Clara. Sacred Heart Prep senior Ally Howe made it, but the Palo Alto boys did not. Howe followed up her National Independent High School Record in the 100-yard backstroke during Friday’s trials by breaking it again at Saturday’s finals. The Palo Alto boys, meanwhile, took a good shot at ending Bellarmine’s historic winning streak at 29 years. The Bells, however, made it to 30 by a mere 12 points in the closest finish in the boys’ division in, well, 30 years. Bellarmine scored 322 points to Paly’s 310. Sacred Heart Prep was ninth and Gunn 10. In the girls’ division, Monta Vista won the team crown with 226 points with Gunn third with 182, Menlo-Atherton a surprising fourth with 163, Sacred Heart Prep fifth with 162 (despite having only four swimmers) and Palo Alto eighth with 127. Three national records were set during the two days of swimming, all for private schools. Stanford-bound Curtis Ogren of St. Francis lowered his national mark in the 200 IM to 1:44.90 on Saturday and Howe clocked 51.84 to break 2012 Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin’s record of 52.30 on Friday. Howe then came back Saturday to lower her own record to 51.54. That makes Howe the second-fastest prep in history, second only to Olivia Smoglia’s National Pub-

Sacred Heart Prep senior Ally Howe set two national records in the 100 back and five Central Coast Section marks to close out her prep career at the section championships.




Gunn, Menlo girls hope to repeat history

Having a Ball is nothing new for Menlo team

by Keith Peters eing the third of four tennisplaying brothers at Menlo School, David Ball has watched his older siblings achieve a lot of success over the years at the Central Coast Section and NorCal tournaments. He watched the eldest, Jamin, close out a 4-3 win over Saratoga in the 2010 CCS final while playing No. 1 singles. And he watched brother No. 2, Andrew, win at No. 1 last year as Menlo defeated Serra. Both Jamin and Andrew then led their respective teams to NorCal titles. Now, it’s time for David Ball to follow in the impressive footsteps of his brothers. He took the first step last Friday as he fittingly played on center court at Courtside Club in Los Gatos, posting a 6-0, 6-0 victory at No. 1 singles to help the top-seeded Knights (21-3) hand Saratoga (20-1) its first loss of the season, 6-1.



he CIF State Track and Field Championships in 2005 was a special one for the local area as Gunn’s Tori Tyler and Menlo School’s Libby Jenke ran off with victories. Tyler won the girls’ 3,200 in 10:38.90 and Jenke took the girls’ 800 in 2:10.39. Since then, no local runner or jumper has won a state title. But, that could change in a few weeks. Not only are there two local girls with legitimate shots at winning, but both are from the same schools that produced the previous titles. Gunn senior Sarah Robinson hopes to follow in Tyler’s footsteps while Menlo School senior Maddy Price eyes a similar feat that Jenke produced. Both Robinson and Price are two meets away from putting themselves in a position to replicate local history. First up is Saturday’s Central Coast Section trials at San Jose City College at 2 p.m. The CCS finals follow on May 30.

STANFORD WEEKEND . . . Call it championship weekend as the Stanford men’s golf team begins its quest for a national title and the women’s team looks to finish among the NCAA leaders. Several members of the Stanford women’s tennis team also remain in the hunt for an individual national title in the wake of the Cardinal’s Final Four appearance as a team. Stanford’s baseball team is in the exact same position it was a year ago at this point in the season. A series sweep and the Cardinal will be sent somewhere for an NCAA regional appearance. Anything less and the chances become dicey. Junior Patrick Rodgers and senior Cameron Wilson, perhaps the country’s best collegiate golfing duo, hope to end their careers as NCAA champs. The Cardinal takes to the links on Friday at the Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kan. Rodgers most recently won the prestigious Ben Hogan Award given to the “outstanding male amateur and collegiate golfer and of the year.”

Triple play keeps Menlo season alive for now


For the past two weeks, Robinson has turned in a remarkable distance triple — winning the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 at the SCVAL De Anza Division Championships and again at the SCVAL Championship Meet. While she was expected to drop one event for the CCS trials, that’s not the case. “Well, the plan as of today is to run all three this week,” said Gunn coach PattiSue Plumer, “and then we will almost definitely drop one, and probably the 800. But, too soon to say for sure.” Robinson ranks No. 3 in the state in the 1,600 (4:17.10 converted), No. 5 in the 3,200 (10:16.98) and No. 6 in the 800 (2:11.09). Anna Maxwell of San Lorenzo Valley is the state leader in the 800 (2:08.84) and 1,600 (4:41.16) and ranks No. 2 in the 3,200 (10:04.81). Maxwell, however, has dropped the 3,200 in favor of the two shorter races but won’t be running in the same heats as Robinson. At the SCVAL Championship Meet last Friday at Santa Clara High, Robinson set meet records in the 800 (2:13.58) and 3,200 (10:40.13) in addition to winning the 1,600 in 4:57.45. Gunn sophomore Maya Miklos set a meet and school record of 42.74 while winning the 300 hurdles, moving to No. 8 in the state. Gunn senior Adriana Noronha won the shot put and discus to help the Titans score 106 points, good for second behind the 145 scored by Los Gatos. Price, meanwhile, has dropped the 100 after winning that race in 12.05 plus the 200 (24.86) and 400 (56.21) in addition to taking third in the shot put. That helped the Knights score 98 points and take second at the West Bay Athletic League Championships. Said Menlo coach Jorge Chen on dropping the 100: “Just sticking with her goals . . . 400m state champ being one of them.” Price swept the 200 and 400 at the CCS trials last year and is favored to do so again Saturday. She is also the defending champ in both races at the CCS finals.

Menlo’s Maddy Price will run the 200 and 400 this weekend.

lic School record of 51.43 from 2012. “I’m super excited,” said Howe, who just missed breaking Franklin’s record at last year’s CCS meet. “That was one of the goals I wanted to accomplish, break 52 (seconds). It’s a goal I’ve had for so long. I just went for it and it turned out quite well.” Howe wound up having one of the best meets ever by a local swimmer. “It still hasn’t sunk in,” Howe said Monday. After leading off the Gators’ 200 medley relay team that set a CCS record of 1:44.10 in the prelims, Howe and teammates Selby Sturzenegger, Kayla Holman and Kathryn Bower did it again Saturday by lowering their section mark to 1:43.25. Howe returned a short while later and broke the CCS record in the 200 IM with a 1:57.75. That erased the previous mark of 1:57.94 by Paly’s Jasmine Tosky in 2009. “I’ve been trying to break Jasmine’s record for the past few years,” Howe explained. “Trying to get Jasmine’s record was a good goal.” Howe then lowered her national mark in the 100 back, which actually came as quite a surprise after trying to get it Friday. “I was definitely surprised,” she said. “Definitely exciting and unexpected. It was a good way to end my last individual event.” The Stanford-bound Howe still wasn’t done. She clocked a sizzling 48.47 on the anchor leg to overhaul favored Monta Vista and bring the Gators home first in a school record of 3:25.03. Every event Howe swam in Sat-

urday produced an automatic AllAmerican time. “I’m never surprised by her,” said SHP coach Kevin Morris. While Howe was the individual star of the girls’ competition, the Palo Alto boys did their best to take down Bellarmine’s 29-year dominance. After outscoring the Bells 56-8 in the 100 back behind William Lee (second in 50.00 after setting a school record of 49.49 in the prelims), Winston Wang (fifth in 51.71), Ryan Drover (sixth in 51.91) and Andrew Cho (seventh in 52.08). Heading into the final 400 free relay, Paly trailed by just six points — the margin between finishing first and second. Had Paly and Bellarmine gone one-two, the meet would have finished in a tie. Had St. Francis snuck in between the teams, the Vikings would have won. It was that close. Bellarmine wound up winning in 3:02.36 with Paly taking second with a smashing school record of 3:04.12 as senior Andrew Liang anchored in 43.47. “They put everything they had into the race,” said Paly coach Danny Dye. “I can’t deny their effort. I can’t deny their passion. I’m as proud of them whether it’s a blue (first place) trophy or red (second place) trophy.” The Stanford-bound Liang bowed out with a great performance. He set a CCS record of 47.09 in the 100 fly on Friday and came back to win the title in 47.44. He set a school record of 20.12 in the 50 free in the prelims and won the finals in 20.41. Liang also swam the fly leg on the 200 medley relay that set a CCS record of 1:31.28 after breaking the school record with a 1:32.20 in the prelims. Paly’s 200 medley relay missed the public school national record by less than two seconds.

Thus, Liang had a hand in five school records and two CCS marks over the two days. “I had some goals in mind, expectations for the finals,” he said. It’s been pretty good. Winning helps in the team race. Inside, I’m not quite satisfied. I think I put a little too much pressure on myself. I was trying to break 20 (seconds in the 50 free).” While Liang came away disappointed in himself, he had to be happy with how his team stood up to the challenge of ending Bellarmine’s streak. The last time the Vikings came close was in 2001 when the margin was 33 points. Interesting enough, Palo Alto scored 276 points with 14 swims in the finals while Bellarmine tallied 268 with 13 swims — including relays. The difference came in the consolation finals where the Bells had nine swims and scored 53 points while the Vikings tallied 34 points on eight swims. Elsewhere in the meet, which saw 10 CCS records fall: Palo Alto freshman Grace Zhao opened by singing the National Anthem, the proceeded to win the girls’ 50 free (23.26) and 100 breast (1:02.58). Both were automatic All-American times. She also led off Paly’s 200 free relay with a 23.04 leg, a personal best. Gunn junior Jenna Campbell defended her title in the 200 free with a 1:47.10, but missed doing the same in the 500 free with a second place of 4:50.54. Both were automatic All-American times. The Menlo-Atherton girls got a school record from senior Maddie Pont in the 200 free as she clocked a 1:52.50 while the Gunn boys set a school mark in the 200 medley relay as the team of Jeffrey Lei, Luke Chui, Daichi Matsuda and Joao Ama clocked 1:36.87 while winning the consolation final.

Ball now will take the final steps this weekend at the CIF/ USTA Northern California Regional Championships at the Gold River Racquet Club, just outside of Sacramento. The Knights will open on Friday (1:30 p.m.) against the winner of Lowell (San Francisco) and Enterprise. The semifinals will be Saturday at 1:30 p.m., followed by the finals at 3:30 p.m. Menlo has won 10 of the 15 titles since the NorCal playoffs began in 1999. The Knights have won five straight and can extend its ongoing record to six on Saturday. Saratoga is in the other half of the bracket. Ball heads into the weekend ranking second in his family in career dual-match wins. He now is 104-5 from 2011-14. Andrew leads with a remarkable 110-2 mark while Jamin is 97-11. Since 2007 when Jamin was a freshman until this season, the Ball family has helped Menlo fashion a record of 201-16. Moreover, all three brothers have been

From 2009-12, Menlo went 110-3. From 2010-13, the Knights fashioned a 110-2 mark. And, from 2011-14 (David’s career), Menlo is 104-5. Andrew won four CCS and NorCal titles. David now has four section crowns and needs one more NorCal title to match Andrew, who just finished his freshman year at Harvard. Jamin, who is finishing his senior year at Stanford, had three of each.

David looked at both schools but chose Brigham Young University. He’ll be the only senior starter leaving Menlo. Thus, Menlo’s winning legacy will be passed down to yet another brother, Mark, a freshman this season. David Ball didn’t know he was going to play at No. 1 in the CCS finale until the day before the finale. “Once I heard I was going to play on center court, I thought it would be super awesome to carry on the tradition, for my team and

The senior set two national swim records in the 100 back, clocked a CCS record to win the 200 IM, led off a CCS record-breaking 200 medley relay team and anchored the 400 free relay team to a win and school record.

The senior won three times at No. 1 singles as the Knights defeated Palo Alto, Bellarmine and Saratoga (in the finals) to win their sixth straight CCS Team Tournament title and the 13th such crown in program history.

my family,” Ball said. The win over Saratoga gave Menlo its sixth straight CCS title and 13th overall. The Knights now have won six in a row twice, last accomplishing that from 1998-2003. Palo Alto (1991-1996) and Monta Vista (1997-02) also have won six. Gunn holds the record with seven straight from 1972-78. While David sees carrying on the family tradition as something important, it ranks No. 2 to something else. “I think it’s important, but I think the team comes first,” he said. “I’m proud to be a part of this winning tradition and represent Menlo. It was an honor to take center court.” Ball had prepared himself to face Saratoga’s No. 1 player, Neel Bedekar, but the Falcons’ firstyear coach switched up his lineup in hopes of ending Menlo’s streak. Bedekar played at No. 2 singles and his No. 3 singles player played doubles. The switch had no effect on the outcome, at least not for the Falcons. “It just fired up our team even more,” said Menlo coach Bill

Shine. “It’s not a good move on their (Saratoga’s) part.” Ball blitzed his opponent and junior Vikram Chari did the same at No. 3 singles, 6-0, 6-0. Menlo’s No. 3 doubles team of Clarence Lam and Alex Neumann gave the Knights a 3-0 lead with a 6-2, 6-4 triumph. With four matches still on the courts, Menlo’s Gunther Matta wrapped up the title with a 7-5, 6-0 triumph at No. 4 singles. “I knew it would be me or Victor (Pham),” said Matta. “It doesn’t really matter who is the clincher. The key thing was to find a way to get the win.” Pham won a few minutes later, 6-4, 6-2, and the No. 1 doubles tandem of Gabriel Morgan and Nathan Safran put the finishing touches on the triumph with a 6-2, 6-7, 6-2 win. “It’s amazing,” Matta said of Menlo’s string of titles. “Bill does such a good job. The coaches (including assistant David Wermuth) have us practice hard every day, to get us in great shape.” “I’m happy for all the new kids on the team,” said Shine. “It (winning CCS) never gets old; it gets better.” N
