As with any competition that declares a winner by majority vote, the Oscars are inherently subjective. There are always beautiful performances and excellent work that goes unnoticed. Every year numerous retrospective articles recount famous Oscar snubs. Hard to predict, many times the most deserving person or film in each category, goes home empty handed. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) uses proportional voting (also known as a preferential system) for the selection of Oscar nominees. Under the AMPAS nominating system, approximately 5,500 Academy members receive their ballots in December. Each AMPAS member is allowed to vote as many as five times in their occupational category. Votes are listed in declining preference, from the voter’s first choice through the fifth. To determine nominations, votes are counted according to the level of preference. PricewaterhouseCoopers manually tabulates responses according to Academy rules. Each year, it takes approximately 1,700 “person-hours” to count and verify the ballots by hand. It takes seven days to count the ballots for nominations and three days to count the ballots for winners. The Oscars air live Sunday, February 27, on ABC at 5 p.m. INDEX It’s a date . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3

You don’t have to like Green Eggs and Ham to appreciate “Read Across America Day.” This celebration of reading created by the National Education Association (NEA) and the California Teachers Association (CTA) recognizes the birthday of beloved children’s author Theodor Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss.” Since March 2, 1998, a national salute to the joys of reading brings together kids of all ages as well as adults who love books. continued on page 17

His passion and enthusiasm encourages fellow department members to support the fund-raising walkathon held every year.

Fear can be reduced by being prepared, practicing safety and learning how to solve a problem.

Kellie shows the love put into each valentine card

SUBMITTED BY ROSANNE LYON PHOTOS BY ANNE MARCUS

G Naomi and Kellie get creative

irls on the CYO third grade volleyball team at St. Edward School in Newark spent a recent Sunday afternoon creating beautiful valentine cards for our U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pink and white construction paper, stickers, foam valentine cutouts and markers were the materials the girls used to create their wonderful masterpieces. Anne Marcus, the girls’ coach, contacted the Blue Star Moms to get permission for the girls to make the cards

for our soldiers. The organization is comprised of mothers who have children currently serving or who have served in the military. The Valentine’s Day cards were delivered to the Alameda County Blue Star Moms at their monthly meeting at the Veterans Hall in Fremont on February 2. The Blue Star Moms will send these Valentine Cards (and lollipops) to military personnel in areas of conflict. Our hope is that this small gesture will bring happiness to their hearts and let them know that we are thinking about them and praying for their safe return to the U.S. God bless our troops!

Washington Hospital Seminar Offers Tips for Partnering With Your Doctor

I

f you or someone in your life has diabetes, you know that managing the chronic disease can sometimes be overwhelming. People with diabetes must constantly be aware of how their actions will affect their blood glucose (sugar) levels. What they eat – or don’t eat – whether they exercise, and how well they handle everyday stress can dramatically affect their health. “Managing your diabetes can be a fulltime job,” said Dr. Dianne Martin, an internist and member of the Washington Hospital medical staff. “Trying to take care of the rest of your life and doing everything you need to do to keep your blood glucose under control can be difficult. That’s why it’s important to work closely with your doctor. Partnering with your doctor can help you stay motivated, especially when you feel overwhelmed.” She will present “Partnering with Your Doctor to Improve Diabetes Control,” part of Washington Hospital’s free Diabetes Matters education series. The class is scheduled for Thursday, March 3, from 7 to 8 p.m., at the Conrad E. Anderson, M.D. Auditorium at Washington West, 2500 Mowry Avenue, in Fremont. You can register online at www.whhs.com or call (510) 745-6556 for more information. Diabetes is a life-altering chronic disease that occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin or is not able to use it properly. Insulin helps the body process glucose, which fuels the body. When

At an upcoming Diabetes Matters education seminar at Washington Hospital, Dr. Dianne Martin, an internist and member of the Washington Hospital medical staff will talk about some of the tests that can help you and your doctor monitor how well you are controlling your diabetes. The free class will take place on Thursday, March 3, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Conrad E. Anderson M.D. Auditorium, located at 2500 Mowry Avenue in Fremont. For more information, call (510) 745-6556 or visit www.whhs.com/diabetes.

this process doesn’t work properly, glucose levels can get abnormally high, which can harm the body. Martin will offer tips for talking with your physician and getting the most out of doctor’s visits. For example, she said it’s good to bring a list of questions and issues you want to talk about so you can be sure to cover them during the visit. She also encourages her patients to get their lab work done before their visit.

“That way, your doctor will know how well you are managing your diabetes and they can help you address any issues,” she said. Preventing Complications According to Martin, proper management is critical because high levels of glucose in the blood can damage the blood vessels as well as other organs like the kidneys, heart, and eyes. People with diabetes are at much higher risk for heart and kidney disease, stroke, eye

problems, and bone and joint disorders. Other long-term complications include skin problems, digestive issues, sexual dysfunction, and problems with teeth and gums. “The main goal is to prevent complications,” she said. “People with diabetes need to take an active role in managing the disease, and your doctor can help.” She will talk about some of the tests that can help you and your doctor monitor how well you are controlling your diabetes. Of course, blood glucose levels have to be checked regularly. But other tests are also needed to show long-term control of blood glucose and measure the effect diabetes is having on the body. For example, she said the glycohemoglobin A1c gives a three-month average of blood glucose levels, which shows how well the disease is being managed over time. Other tests are needed to determine if kidney function is being affected and regular eye exams can help to prevent eye diseases that are more common among people with diabetes, she added. Martin also encourages patients to bring loved ones with them to the doctor to provide support and gain a better understanding of what needs to be done to keep diabetes under control. She said building a support team that includes your doctor, family, and friends, as well as joining a support group like the one at Washington Hospital can be very helpful. “Sometimes partners may not be aware of how important

it is not to snack or to get exercise and they unknowingly sabotage the patient’s efforts,” she said. “It might be that the person with diabetes isn’t the one who shops for food and the one who does has no idea what they should or shouldn’t be buying. A lot of times just being involved helps.” To find out about the wide variety of services offered through the Washington Outpatient Diabetes Center, visit www.whhs.com/diabetes.

World Kidney Day Seminar Coming in March Diabetes is one of the leading causes of kidney failure in the United States. To help build public awareness about the strong connection between diabetes and kidney disease, Washington Hospital is conducting a free health fair and seminar about kidney health on Tuesday, March 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. The free event will take place at the Conrad E. Anderson M.D. Auditorium located at 2500 Mowry Avenue in Fremont. Register online at www.whhs.com.

UC Premier Fusion under-11 girls soccer team captured their second State Cup championship in three years by defeating Mustang Blaze, 1-0, in the Nor-

Cal Premier State Cup Tournament. Fusion defeated Los Gatos United Pride, CSCV Crossfire and Burlingame Flash in the State Cup qualifying round, outscoring their opponents by eight goals and only allowing one. Fusion entered the single elimination quarterfinal roundseated number one in the Gold division. Fusion defeated eighth seeded Los Gatos Pride 1-0 for a second time in the tournament, advancing to the semi-final match. Facing a very determined LaMorinda United 99 team in the semi-final match, Fusion demonstrated previous

Premier Fusion and Danville Mustang Blaze. In fall tournament play, the two teams met twice, resulting in draws both times, 3-3 and 1-1. But in the NorCal Premier Championships, Fusion scored approximately seven seconds into the match, in what was most likely the fastest goal of the tournament; it was the only goal of the match. “We didn’t finish on several scoring opportunities, which allowed our opponents to stay in the match,” said Fusion coach Luis Mejia. “Blaze made a plausible effort in taking advantage of our

streak; match winning goals in the semifinal and championship match by Iris Reyes and LeaNess Donn; and four clean sheets by keepers Raena Juarez and Kayla Tahaafe. The 2010-11 NorCal Premier State Cup Gold title complements what has been Fusion’s most decorated season since the team’s initiation in 2008. Fusion finished second in league play with only one loss, were finalist in the CSCV Magic Cup tournament, champions of the San Ramon Cup and champions of the Bladium Indoor Soccer League.

Donn and Raena Juarez. They are coached by Luis Mejia, Victor Juarez and Tony Vargas and the team manager is Danae Juarez. A special thanks to the Fusion families for their support. Players interested in joining UC Premier Fusion (whose birth date is between August 1, 1999, and July 31, 2000) please contact Luis Mejia at luis.mejia@ucpremier.org or 510-681-7041. qqqx

SUBMITTED BY KELLY HAYES Head Coach Amy Gerace and the Cal State East Bay women’s soccer program announced the signing of four players to Letters of Intent for the 2011 season. The Pioneers will add a trio of freshmen in Kelley Brown, Ariana Gordon and Sara Yamasaki, and one community college transfer in Breahna Berry for the fall campaign. “I’m very excited about our overall group,” Gerace said. “This group brings a higher level of club experience and will help continue to raise our level of play. As people, the personalities of these players will compliment our returning players very well and add to the current culture of the team. We are very excited to have Ari, Bre, Kelley and Sara join the East Bay family.” A native of Brentwood, Ariana Gordon prepped at Heritage High School where she is a four-year varsity starter. The versatile forward has also played at center back and midfield during her high school career. During the 2009-10 season, Gordon was named Bay Valley Athletic League Co-Offensive Player of the Year and was a first-team all-league selection at forward. As a team captain this season, Gordon has led Heritage to a 14-1-6 overall record, the BVAL title and its second straight appearance in the North Coast Section playoffs. Gordon has played each of the last five seasons with Pleasanton Rage, where she served as team captain for both her Under-16 and Under-17 squads. Last season, Gordon helped guide the Rage U-17

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

team to first place at the Santa Barbara Summer Cup and first in the Rage Showcase Gold 2 Division. Currently, Gordon plays with the Rage’s Under-18 Elite Club National League team, competing against top club teams from around the state and country. Sara Yamasaki is a 5-4 defender and midfielder from Hollister. Yamasaki is a fouryear varsity letterwinner at Live Oak High School, where she has collected all-league honors in each of her first three seasons. As a freshman, Yamasaki was named Tri-County Athletic League Freshman of the Year. Yamasaki also earned Team MVP honors as a junior and has served as team captain for the last two years. For the last five years, Yamasaki has played club for Orchard Valley Sting, helping her Under-16 team reach the quarterfinals of the 2009 State Cup and finish third in the Abronzino League the same year. Yamasaki was also a 2009 District II Olympic Development Program player and played four seasons of varsity volleyball for Live Oak, helping the Acorns to four straight Central Coast Section playoff appearances and one NorCal finals berth. Hailing from Yucaipa, Kelley Brown is a four-year letterwinner at Yucaipa High School. The 5-4 defender and midfielder helped guide the Thunderbirds to three Citrus Belt League titles and four CIF playoff appearances, reaching the CIF semifinals in 2009. Brown also lettered in both cross country and track and field, making

CIF preliminaries in both sports. Brown played three seasons of club soccer with Coyotes FC before spending five years with Arsenal FC, where she has served as captain for the last two years. While at Arsenal, Brown played two seasons with the club’s Elite Club National League teams, competing against top club teams from around the country. Breahna Berry joins the Pioneers after playing one season at Las Positas College. The Tracy native was a starting forward for the Hawks, collecting Coast Conference MVP and Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2010. Berry was an explosive force up top for Las Positas, scoring 33 goals and adding seven assists in her first season. Berry was a four-year starter at Tracy High School where she helped the Bulldogs to their first league title in 23 years. Berry collected numerous accolades as a senior in 2009-10, including Best All-Around Player, San Joaquin Athletic Association Offensive MVP and team MVP. Berry was a three-time All-SJAA honoree and collected the Tracy High Athletic Scholar Award, while participating in Tracy’s International Baccalaureate Program where she graduated with Scholar Honors. Berry played her club soccer with Pleasanton Rage. The four signees are set to join the Pioneers in the fall, when they will enter their third season playing at the Division II level. Cal State East Bay lost five seniors, but will return eight of its regular starters from the 2010 season.

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

continued from page 1

Most people would agree that learning to read is one of the most important skills that a child should acquire. Teachers, students, parents and caring adults are encouraged to share their love of reading by spending time reading aloud to one another, or by participating in other literacy-enhancing activities. Start your own family reading traditions! First, here are two Read Across America Day events open to the public: Special public event in San Jose: PBS affiliate KQED, which airs the television program, “The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!” will be bringing the Cat in the Hat to the Westgate Mall in San Jose (Saratoga & Hamilton Avenues), on Wednesday, March 9 from 10 a.m.12 p.m. The event includes children’s musical entertainment, prizes and a storybook reading with Dr. Seuss books. After the reading, join the Cat in the Hat for a meet-and-greet and bring your camera for a photo with the Cat! This event is part of Westgate Mall’s Mommy & Me and Daddies Too monthly event. Visit www.kqed.org for more information. Fremont Public Library: Create free craft projects in celebration of Dr. Seuss Wednesday, March 2 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. For children in Pre-K – 3rd grade Make a “Cat in the Hat” hat, recycled art bookmark and a fishbowl craft activity. Several recycling cartoons will also be shown. Fremont Public Library 2400 Stevenson, Fremont (510) 745-1421 Tickets will be distributed beginning at 3:30 p.m. Event limited to first 50 children. Many schools will be hosting their own activities for students in celebration of Read Across America Day.

The following is a sampling: At Fremont’s Cabrillo Elementary School, parents, community members and district office staff will be invited to read to students from 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., continuing a Dr. Seuss’ birthday tradition. Students, who have participated in the Young Authors program, will read their original books to their peers. It will be a drop everything and read/sustained silent reading day. At Glenmoor Elementary School in Fremont, the library will be decorated for Read Across America. Dr. Seuss books will be featured and the librarian will read a Seuss book to the children and hand out bookmarks, the week beginning March 1. The school will also preview a new DVD, “Horton Hears a Who,” recently procured for the library. Guest readers from the district will come to read their favorite books in the classrooms. In Hayward, Park Elementary School is holding its first Read Across America event, celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Community members and dignitaries will be reading to the students on March 2, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Kennedy Elementary School in Newark will be holding “Read Around the World” on March 4. Newark Schools Superintendent, Kevin Harrigan and other community members will be reading aloud to the students. Also in Newark, Graham Elementary School’s Reading Challenge which has been in effect since the start of the school year culminates with a celebration. All students who reached the goal of 50 books by the March 2 target date, as well as all others who tried, will join in the fun. A pajama day and reading books in the classroom adds to the day’s festivities! At Union City’s Kitayama Elementary School, students will be

awarded prizes for the number of hours they read, between February 18 and March 3, according to PTA President, Tracy Kilbride. A Dr. Seuss Birthday party will be held on March 11 to celebrate the students’ reading accomplishments.

Free buttermilk pancakes

SUBMITTED BY TERRY WILLS Pancake Day is a tradition that dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent. Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products…hence the name Pancake Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday. In celebration of National Pancake Day, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, Tuesday, March 1, from 7 a.m. – 10 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network. Donations made at IHOPs in the San Francisco area will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ programs at Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland. To find a local IHOP or to donate online, visit www.ihoppancakeday.com.

SUBMITTED BY RICK LA PLANTE The Board of Education, on February 15, received a presentation on proposed budget reductions for 2011-12. It reflects Governor Brown’s state budget proposal and various scenarios, depending on whether District voters approve Measure B and/or the Governor’s request for tax extensions. Chief Business Officer Akur Varadarajan told the Board that he is preparing the second interim budget — which will be presented March 15 — to include $5.3 million in new reductions, on top of $4.9 million in reductions approved by the Board at the first interim. At that time, the Board approved increasing K-3 class sizes to 30-to-1 (from 20to-1 in kindergarten and 25-to-1 in first through third grades); reducing the work year by three student days and two non-student days; eliminating stipends for co-curricular and extra-curricular activities; and reducing the counseling staff and media specialists, among other cuts. Cutting the additional $5.3 million would entail the following, Mr. Varadarajan

If Measure B passes, Mr. Varadarajan told the Board, the cuts approved in the first-interim budget would be mitigated as follows: the increase in kindergarten class sizes would be reduced to 25-to-1 and firstthrough third-grade classes would remain at 25-to-1; the three student days would be restored to the work year; and extra-curricular and co-curricular stipends would be maintained.

mately $3 million through $180 parcel tax, is the subject of a special vote-by-mail election this spring. Ballots will be mailed beginning April 4 and voters may cast their ballots through Election Day on May. 3. In addition, Gov. Brown has asked the Legislature to allow state voters to decide in a June election the fate of a series of taxes that are set to expire. If the tax extensions are passed, Mr. Varadarajan told the Board, the District would address the proposed secondinterim cuts as follows: restoring the two student days and two non-student days to the work year; restoring 50 percent of the adult education program; and retaining the high school and middle school positions. Also, the Board: Adopted a resolution urging the Legislature to approve Gov. Brown’s call to place the tax extensions on the June ballot; Voted for four Board members from neighboring districts — Valerie Arkin of Pleasanton Unified, David Haubert of Dublin Unified, Dianna Prola of San Leandro Unified and Nancy Thomas of Newark Unified — as representatives to the California School Boards Association.

T

ax season is here and the deadline for filing your tax returns is nearing. If you are not sure where to start, these five steps may help as you prepare to send your tax returns to the IRS and state authorities. 1. Get Organized You should review all financial activities throughout the year and collect any applicable documents that you will need to file your tax returns. Consider if you have sold stock, purchased online products without paying tax, re-located due to a change in employment, etc. These are all items that you will need to record on your tax return. As the W-2s and 1099s start coming in, store them in a file with the rest of your tax documents. Organization is a key component to making tax filing less stressful. If you have your own business, organize all your receipts and expense journal from the previous year. 2. Prepare Your Tax Returns After you have organized all of your tax documents and financial information from the previous year, you are ready to prepare your tax returns. Consider your options: You can prepare the tax returns yourself using tax software, or you can hire a paid preparer. IRS Statistics showed that last year, over

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

34 million e-filed tax returns were self-prepared. Be aware that self-prepared returns have an increased chance for error. If using a tax preparer, make sure they have all your tax documents early, otherwise, you may have to file an extension. 3. Did you take all of your deductions and credits? To maximize your refund, review all of the credits and deductions that you can take. A CPA can help you learn more about deductions/credits that you are eligible for, but consider some of the following: • First-Time Homebuyer Credit • Child Tax Credit • Earned Income Credit • American Opportunity Credit • Educator Expense Deduction 4. Double Check your Return Are you ready to submit your tax return? Carefully review your tax return to ensure that there aren’t any mistakes that will delay your refund. • Did you sign and date your tax return? • Do you have the correct social security number on your tax return? • Is your filing status correct? • Did you use the correct forms/schedules? • Did you claim eligible dependents? • Did you report all of your income even if it is not on a W-2 or 1099? • Do you need to pay and/or report payroll tax? 5. File Your Tax Return As you prepare to submit your tax return to the IRS, consider your options. You can efile or paper file your tax return. The turn-a-round time

for refunds is much quicker with e-filing, but the IRS still accepts paper-filed returns.

How to do business with public agencies SUBMITTED BY CITY OF HAYWARD The City of Hayward will host its second annual Open House for local businesses that would like to do business

AP WIRE SERVICE BY HENRY BAILEY THE COMMERCIAL APPEAL WALLS, Miss. (AP), Feb 25 During a recent DUI stop, Walls Police Chief Gary Boisseau got vital help from his “second set of eyes.” Wearable video saw things in the suspect’s car that even the chief’s experienced visual scan missed at first, and helped nail the case. With the technology, officers in the tiny town in northwest DeSoto County have made a big leap in enforcing the law and invoking efficiency, says Boisseau. “It’s a silent witness, and it’s been invaluable,” he said. If someone who saw some-

thing or is a suspect “later backs off and says they didn’t say something, well, this gets it all,” he said. “Video doesn’t lie, so they can’t deny what they said or did on camera.’’ The devices, about the size of a disposable lighter, have been undergoing tests by the chief and his four part-time officers for a couple of months. Recently, after ordering more at a mere $10 each, he said the chief officially issued them. They join the dashboardmounted cameras already in use by the force. But an officer can’t take a dash cam into a house or cluttered alley, and its microphone has a limited range. The wearable cams, attached by an alligator clip to

Representatives from the City of Hayward’s Police, Fire and Public Works Departments and Hayward Executive Airport will be present.

a shirt or jacket, go where the officer goes and see and hear everything - and everyone the officer encounters. Innocuously, too. “You have to really look to notice it,” said Boisseau. Boisseau said for once his force appears to be leading the posse in DeSoto County. “We have dashboard cameras and cameras in the jail, but my officers don’t have these (wearable cams),” said Sheriff Bill Rasco. “And I’m not aware of any other department that has them.” In other areas, such devices have been gaining results and law enforcers’ endorsements as an aid to documentation and prosecution.

Boisseau, who like other officers has seen “cop toys” come and go, thinks these won’t end up in the drawer. The versatile devices can be attached to a wall or tree for surveillance, rolling about two hours on a full battery charge, and their capture of the emotion and gritty reality of first-person accounts resonates with viewers. “It’s proving to be a valuable tool for us, especially in court,” said Boisseau. “I would encourage it,” said Senior Justice Court Judge Ken Adams. “You know the old saying, ‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’ As long as it’s a clear video, it can bring fairness - to both sides.” Walls’ wearable video cams

for police were paid for by the city out of a wireless communications fund. While top-of-the-line types such as those made by Seattlebased VIEVU can cost as much as $899 each, those for costconscious Walls are “Chinese imports’’ that cost about $10 each, said Police Chief Gary Boisseau. They were picked out over the Internet, he said. “And as to cost, they’re almost to the point of being disposable. So if an officer loses one, we won’t be ready to pull his ears off.” —Information from: The Commercial Appeal, http://www.commercialappeal.com

BY SIMON WONG PHOTOS BY SIMON WONG St. Rose Hospital, Hayward, has successfully completed a five-year capital improvement program which entailed two years of construction and projects that underscore the hospital’s pre-eminence as a Cardiac Receiving Center and equitable treatment of all community members, insured and uninsured. Additionally, the facility complies with State regulations through 2030 following seismic retrofits. “We’ve accomplished significant projects this past year,” acknowledges Michael Mahoney, St. Rose Hospital

(Seated), Mrs. Dolores Jordan (l) and Mr. Sherman L. Balch (r). (Standing), Pamela Russo, RN, Executive Director, St. Rose Hospital Foundation

President and CEO. “As we enter our 49th year of providing high quality care in this rapidly changing healthcare landscape, we remain confident in our future capacity to meet our local community’s increasing needs.” The most significant of these projects was the $18.3M transformation of the 13,000 sq. ft. Fifth Floor which formerly housed the hospital’s administrative staff and adds 30 new, private patient suites that allow family members to be more involved in the treatment process. Each room is integrated into the hospital’s new global cardiac monitoring system. Hospital leaders have incorporated privacy, comfort and the sense of being a “guest,” and not a patient, to ensure

well-being and a speedy recovery. The walls contain sound insulation and plumbing has been installed in a manner to reduce noise. Rooms are devoid of obtrusive monitors and alarms; patients are connected remotely to such equipment located at the Nurses’ Station. A $10M gift from long-standing donor Dolores Jordan and the Jordan Family, the hospital’s many benefactors and a bond issue through the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development’s Cal Mortgage Insurance Program enabled the capital improvements and investment. Fremont Bank Foundation generously funded a new infant security system for the Family Birthing Center. Glass security doors restrict access and egress; when a baby is in the vicinity of the doors, an alarm alerts the Nurses’ Station and triggers lock-down procedures. “We fund a variety of organizations. One of the things we look for in our grant-making is people. Our funding is assistance rather than a hand-out. We don’t want a financial return on our investment but like to see a return for the greater good. The St. Rose team is amazing; they’ve always done wonderful things which produce lasting social worth for other people; they leveraged our Foundation’s grant; they consider the best use of what they have. That’s why we support them,” explained Hattie

Hyman-Hughes, Senior Vice President and President, Fremont Bank Foundation. “The Bank’s staff works hard; I feel responsible for what we give and the difference it makes. I hope that when our employees visit St. Rose and see ‘Fremont Bank’ on a plaque, they understand they actually make the difference. Recipients always thank me for the funding but how can we thank them for their dedication, commitment and compassion? It’s very humbling.” The hospital lobby and main corridors have been fully re-modeled with a gift from the St. Rose Hospital Auxiliary whose donations, which average $30,000 annually, derive from the Gift Shop’s proceeds and events and activities such as the popular Christmas Boutique. In 2010, the Auxilians celebrated one million volunteer hours and $1M raised since St. Rose Hospital’s founding in 1961. New banners adorn the hospital’s approach and new flooring, furniture and artwork greet visitors on entering. A reception desk awaits installation. “The driving force of the expansion is our patients and we remain grateful to our Boards, many donors and the Jordan family for their generous contribution to Cardiac Care at St. Rose,” says Mahoney, “We’re committed to continually improving our facilities, programs and services with a focus on high-quality, community-based care.”

Mahoney also readily acknowledged the importance of the political support of Senator Ellen Corbett, Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi, former Supervisor Gail Steele, Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, Hayward City Council and David Kears, Director of the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency. “We’ve so many community partners who support our events. The latter aim to give our guests and supporters an experience and, we hope, differ from most conventional fundraising. The St. Rose Hospital Foundation is fortunate to enjoy such tremendous support which enables this hospital to be a center of excellence,” added Pam Russo, Executive Director, St. Rose Hospital Foundation. In 1953, several prominent community members established a hospitalbuilding fund and a local Catholic priest approached the Sisters of St. Joseph of Wichita, Kansas, for sponsorship for a hospital in Hayward. Although the affiliation ceased five years ago, St. Rose has maintained strong connections in recognition of all that the Sisters of St. Joseph made possible. Two representatives, one of whom remembers the opening of St. Rose on October 22, 1962, attended the Fifth Floor Open House on February 10, 2011.

work with many design clients each year, and these are some of the questions I get asked most often. Hope they help you with your home improvement projects. Q. How high over my dining table should I hang my chandelier? A. A good rule of thumb when hanging a chandelier over a dining room table is to hang it so the bottom is approximately 30” above the table. Since most tables are about 30” high, this means that the bottom of the light fixture will be about 60” or 5’ from the floor. If you haven’t placed your table yet, this height will seem very low. But trust me— once your table is in place, the light fixture will look beautiful and be at the correct height.

Q. What about a pendant light over a bar or kitchen island? What is the correct height? A. The same rule of thumb applies here too. Start by holding the pendant light so that the bottom of the fixture is 30” above the countertop. In most situations this works perfectly. Q. How big should my area rug be? A. A rug for your dining room should be large enough to accommodate both the table as well as the chairs with people sitting in them. A rule of thumb is to add about 36” to the width and length of the table. This will give enough room for diners to comfortably move their chairs in and out. Generally, china cabinets and

buffets sit on the floor, not the area rug. In a living room, a rug under a coffee table looks best if the rug is the same length as the sofa. An area rug measuring 6’ X 8’ or 5’ X 7’ is usually a good size in front of a sofa. If in doubt, select a bigger, rather than a smaller size rug. Q. How high should I hang my wall-mounted TV? A. You want the TV positioned where it will be very comfortable for viewing when seated. You don’t want to crane your neck to watch. Try this trick to help determine the perfect height: Sit on the couch or chair in front of the TV where you’ll be watching it. Ask someone to help you mark your eye level on the wall. Then stand up, and make another mark

on the wall at your eye level. Hang the TV on the wall in between the two marks.

great rule of thumb is to hang it so that the center of the artwork is 60-65” from the floor. Trust me—this works!

Q. How far away should my TV be from my sofa? A. Many people are buying large flat screen TVs these days, but do you have enough space in your family room to accommodate it? You don’t want to be too close or too far. Here are some guidelines for some of the more popular screen sizes: For a 40” TV screen, you need about 5 to 8 feet of distance; for a 46” TV, you need about 6 to 9 ? feet; and for a 52” TV, plan on 6 ? to 11 feet. Q. How high should I hang my artwork? A. Artwork hung too high is something I see all the time. A

BY JULIE GRABOWSKI It is pretty much a given that any New Year’s resolutions list will include a commitment to fitness. Again. And despite good intentions and the numerous routines and programs available, exercise can be a tricky thing to stick with. But what if your fitness was more like a dance party? Zumba is a Latin and international music inspired dance program that creates a party-like atmosphere, making ex-

ercise fun and addictive. Created in 2001 by dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez, Zumba has gotten over 10 million people groovin’ through their workouts in more than 90,000 gyms and studios in over 110 countries. Gone are the days of counting reps, strain and boredom. It’s all about letting yourself be moved by the music, and having a good time. “I think people want to learn to dance without taking dance classes,” says local Zumba instructor Cheryl Louie, citing the popularity of such shows as Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. Zumba takes a variety of international flavors of dance and puts it into one program where people can follow along and input their own

style. “It’s the freedom to move and feel good about yourself,” Louie says. A fitness instructor certified in many other areas such as Pilates and spinning, Louie first tried Zumba at an exercise convention and said she thought, “Oooh, I like this!” It appealed to her passion for dance, a love that harkens back to her childhood. She participated in the program as a student for two years before becoming an official Zumba instructor, and has now been teaching for three years and leads nine classes a week. Zumba uses many dance styles and moves including salsa, merengue, reggaeton, flamenco, cumbia, bachata, Bhangra, hip-hop, urban and African. And while popular artists on Louie’s playlist include Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Celia Cruz, and Olga Tanon, Zumba incorporates many different sounds, and can have you moving to a hip-hop beat or shaking it Bollywood style. “Have fun, dance, enjoy, be fit, be happy, be crazy, but we are working every single muscle group!” says Louie. Zumba has been a part of Dinora Corona’s life for a couple of years now. She attends classes with her niece Isela Parra and Parra’s husband Jose, who enlivens and encourages the room with his punctuating shouts and calls. The women love everything about Zumba, specifically mentioning the music and friendly atmosphere. Lorie Robertson started Zumba in November, trying out the class that Louie leads at St. Rose Hospital where Robertson works. She says she and her husband are trying to be healthier and get in better

shape, set a better example for their daughters. Now she does Zumba four times a week and has made it a family affair, bringing her 11 and 14-year-old daughters with her on Saturday mornings. “They love it,” she says, stating that one daughter told her, “I’m sorry Mom, I thought Zumba was easy.” Maybe not easy, but certainly fun. And the instructor helps. “I really like Cheryl, she makes me keep going,” says Robertson. Lota Perenne had heard about Zumba from TV and was looking for a class. She got a close up look at the party when a Zumba demo was held at her younger daughter’s school. Perenne has been involved in the program since October and said she has

Louie’s students is 73. The program also offers different types of classes such as toning and aqua options, as well as age specific classes including Zumbatomic for ages 4 to 12, and Zumba Gold for the older generation with mobility issues. Zumba is an infectious, high-energy experience that will lift your spirits, work you into a sweat, and leave you sorry when it’s over. And for Louie there are only two requirements: to have fun and shake what your mama gave you. “Zumba isn’t about perfection, it’s about movin’, groovin’ and havin’ fun,” she says. So if your fitness goals and routine have got you down, join the Zumba party and dance your way to health and happiness in the New Year.

Burger King re-opens BY SIMON WONG PHOTO BY SIMON WONG Following the demolition and $700,000 re-build of the fastfood chain’s restaurant at 29671 Mission Boulevard (at Industrial Parkway), Hayward, Mayor Mike Sweeney, Councilmen Bill Quirk and Mark Salinas, Hayward Chamber of Commerce, friends, and guests helped the Laungani family celebrate the Grand Reopening of Burger King. Several months ago, Dilip Laungani, who came to the US in 1972, decided to renew his 20-year franchise agreement with Burger King Corporation (BK), the second-largest fast food hamburger chain in the world. His restaurant is the first in the Bay Area to sport the company’s “20/20”design. The 20/20 look is described as “con-

temporary, edgy and futuristic.” Laungani, a former scientist, has a location in San Jose and another in Daly City’s Serramonte Center. His nephews, one of whom is a partner, assist with the running of the business. His daughter, Kaajal, spent several years in research before deciding on a change of career, realizing how hard her father had worked for his family, and is now following in his footsteps and learning about the business. “I wanted an energy-efficient store as part of the rebuild and new design. The kitchen layout is more efficient and conducive to workflow which means we serve our drive-thru customers more quickly. What’s been done should help conserve energy,” explained Laungani. The

restaurant has LED lighting throughout and much of the kitchen equipment is ENERGY STAR-rated. “Everything has to be approved by BK. We must ensure the corporate image and meet the city’s requirements,” explained Phillip Moss, Senior Architect, VMI Architecture which was responsible for the

making process. The next step is a 45-day comment period with a public hearing before the Board in May 2011. The proposed regulation, approved by the BOE on February 23, will take effect on January 1, 2012, upon approval by the Office of Administrative Law, and provide clear direction to the wine industry on the appropriate classification of a wine-based product as a distilled spirit for state tax

This one took about 12 weeks because it was built from scratch,” added Craig Miller, President, Miller Pacific, Inc. specialists in commercial construction. The Mission Boulevard building has metal siding con-

purposes. This follows the same approach as the Distilled Spirits Regulations that took effect October 1, 2008, to primarily address the proper taxation of Flavored Malt Beverages (FMBs). The additional proposed regulation clarifies the definition of wine, specifying that any wine-based product that contains substantial amounts of distilled alcohol from sources other than the agricultural product of which the wine is made will be taxed as a distilled spirit, not as a wine. Notices will be sent by the BOE to all alcoholic beverage tax program registrants, notifying them of the proposed regulation.

Wall insulation has been upgraded to reduce the energy needed to cool the building. For more information, visit www.bk.com

“This regulation will clarify the tax rule to apply it equally to both winebased and beer-based products,” said Betty T. Yee, First District Member of the BOE. “Because most wineries do not use non-wine-based, distilled spirit additives as addressed by the original rule, standard wine products will be unaffected.” At the November 17, 2010 Board meeting, the Board authorized an internal rule-making process that allowed staff to begin talking to interested parties about the proposed regulations.

sentatives to discuss the initial draft of the regulations. Wine and Beer products are taxed at $0.20 per gallon, distilled spirits (100 proof or less) at $3.30 per gallon and distilled

spirits (over 100 proof ) are taxed at $6.60 per gallon. The excise tax on beer and wine is generally paid by manufacturers, wine growers and importers. Sellers of beer and wine

must pay the excise tax if the tax was not paid by the manufacturers, winegrowers, or importers. In general, the excise tax on distilled spirits is collected from retailers by distilled

spirits wholesalers at the time of sale to the retailer. For more information, visit www.boe.ca.gov and www.taxes.ca.gov

ou can’t survive without them, but there are times when your clients just make you shake your head. One wants “new”. You show them “new” and they pick the same old thing. Another aspires to a serious reputation, but you know the CEO is a wild man. And if changing their minds was an Olympic sport, they’d all have a dozen gold medals. Wouldn’t you love to know what makes your customers and, come to think of it, your employees tick? Read the new book “Unthinking” by Harry Beckworth, and you might get an idea. Do you really know what you know?

Beckworth thinks not. People, he says, tend to choose “shortcuts” and things that are familiar – which means that what we “know” may not be true. We tend to rely on common knowledge, not statistics, and feelings often trump the truth. There are, says Beckworth, three things that drive those feelings: our childhoods (play), our culture (optimism), and our eyes (beauty).

we argue and squabble, but we always know that, fiddle-dee-dee, tomorrow’s another day. Most of all, though, we are visual creatures who love colors and graphs and pictures. Even as infants, we can spot beauty and appreciate it. And we love marketing that is short, concise, and to the point. Says Beckworth: “We love easy.” But I didn’t love this book so much at the beginning. Taking his own advice to “tell stories” because we relish them, author Harry Beckworth does exactly that over the course of nearly this entire almost-300-page book. Just about every point he makes is illustrated with a story, and that’s not a bad thing – unless you’re a busy businessperson who only needs the facts. The stories, while entertaining, seemed to be too subtle for time-starved readers. But take another look, and you’ll see an “Outliers” kind of book filled with examples and insights on American behavior and habits. Read past the how-willthis-help-me feeling, and you’ll start to see yourself and your clients. You’ll begin to understand why your advertising is – or isn’t – working. Things begin to make sense, if you can stick with this book. So the core advice is: don’t read it unless you’ve got time to absorb its subtleties. Put it aside and wait for another day. If you can do that, you may find that “Unthinking” helps you get a fair shake in business.

If you’ve ever watched animals, you know how they love to play – and humans are animals. Our music reflects play, as do movies and commercials, even our language: we “won” a new account or “scored” a great bargain. Playfully, our brains are wired to love surprises and hate things that are “big” or too familiar. But there are conundrums: we also love the familiar. We crave individuality and we love feeling like we’re members of an “exclusive” club, but we happily leap aboard the loudest bandwagon. We’ll willingly walk two blocks to save $30 on a $70 watch, but we won’t take the effort to save $30 on a $700 stereo. Overall,

ost people know Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont as the graceful, low-lying, grassy hills north of the Dumbarton Bridge. Walk the park’s trails and experience an area rich in human and natural history including the site of a more than 2,000year-old Tuibun Ohlone village, a marshland overflowing with waterfowl and other wildlife and a charming nectar garden created as habitat for butterflies and hummingbirds.

at hand. In March and April, staff will host four separate classes for those 16 or older, curious about an opportunity to introduce school children and other park visitors to Ohlone cultures past to present, or how to garden for butterflies and birds. You need not have any prior knowledge about these topics, only a desire to learn and passion for sharing

what you learn during park programs and special events. Here’s what two of the park’s current volunteer educators, called docents, have to say about their participation in the program: Docent training takes you behind the scenes of everyday park life. Under the guidance of naturalists who are pre-eminent in their various fields, the connections between past and present are uncovered. Interest in the world around us is contagious; docent training helps us be effective in passing the story along. It also provides a most satisfying experience in meeting and working with other likeminded volunteers who participate in the program. What a great opportunity to learn and grow. Take advantage of it! —Carol Pike You don’t have to be a senior to volunteer at your local parks and enjoy sharing activities with students. There is such a variety of opportunity, you can

choose what you’re interested in, and expand into other areas. It’s fascinating how local cultures shape the history of the park. When you share this with visitors, there are many hands-on activities, and cultural objects created by contemporary Ohlone peoples, that help tell the story.” —Silva Dudgeon As an Ohlone cultures docent, you’ll have an opportunity to learn about how local Ohlones lived so well for so long in the area. In addition to finding out about Ohlone cultures past to present, you’ll be trained in the details of one or more Ohlone cultural skills, such as how to: (1) convert a plant called dogbane into string; (2) create fire without matches; (3) make and paddle a tule boat; (4) replicate Ohlone-style structures; (5) cook acorn soup in a basket with heated

stones; or (6) fashion an arrowhead from volcanic rock. You’ll have a chance to meet and work with Ohlones of all ages, and to find out how they’re keeping their cultures alive while living as modern Americans. As a nectar garden docent, you’ll have an opportunity to learn: (1) fascinating facts about butterflies and hummingbirds; (2) how to create a garden that will attract these winged wonders to settle in; and (3) butterfly and hum-

mingbird-themed crafts and activities. Docents are part of a team of friendly, committed individuals, staff and volunteers alike, who share a passion for park history, resources, plants and animals. Docents assist Naturalists with educational programs, activities, and special events, can become involved in special projects that enhance educational programs, and are invited to field trips and workshops to update skills and knowledge and meet docents from other parks.

Your journey to become an Ohlone cultures docent begins by participating in one of two three-day training sessions, the first scheduled to occur on Thursdays, March 17, 24, and 31 from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.; the second scheduled to occur on Sundays, April 10, 17, and 24 from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Ohlone cultures docents must be at least 16 years of age. There is a one-time materials fee of $35. A minimum commitment of assisting with nine Naturalist programs per year is required. Your journey to become a nectar garden docent begins by attending one of two one-day training sessions, Thursday, March 3, or Sunday, April 3, from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. These sessions are free. Nectar garden docents must be 18 years of age. A minimum commitment of at least 60 hours of docent service per year (five hours per month) is required.
