he familiar ringing “Yowza!� endorsement of everything promoting Newark, California has limited tenure at Newark City Hall. Mayor Dave Smith, an icon of strength, stability, leadership and enthusiastic promotion of all things Newark will be leaving office at the close of his current term of office. The announcement was greeted with shock and a realization that this long time pillar of Newark would, at some point, choose to travel a parallel Newark-centric path from the one he has trod for the last 35 years. continued on page 35 INDEX It’s a date . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3

Photo of Fawn in Kimber Park taken by Ninh Dzoan

When is open space simply another property waiting for subdivision and development? The question has come before the residents of the Kimber Park community in Fremont who have lived for decades in single-family dwellings that surround several parcels reserved in the original grant deed, dated February 20, 1976 for a swim/tennis club and open space. Although several attempts by developers have ensued during intervening years, residents have successfully resisted their efforts. continued on page 26

Fremont Police Blotter COURTESY OF DETECTIVE WILLIAM VETERAN May 15: An armed robbery at PK Market was committed by two Black Male suspects. One suspect held the clerk at bay with a black semi-automatic handgun while the other stole cash, coins and lottery tickets. The suspects are described as: thin, 6’0” male wearing a dark hoodie and a thin, 5’1” male wearing a white hoodie and gloves. May 17: Craig Wilson, a 37-year-old male, was arrested by Officer Haugh for burglary, possession of burglary tools, and resisting arrest. Four commercial burglaries were reported. In each instance, unknown suspect(s) pried open a door in order to gain entry into a business. Officers responded to Target, 39201 Fremont Blvd., on a report of an inprogress commercial burglary after store security observed a male suspect attempting to break into an iPod display case. When Officers Lambert and Malcomson arrived, the suspect fled but was caught and arrested for burglary, possession of burglary tools, and resisting arrest. This case was investigated by Officer Haugh. Officers respond to Fremont and Peralta on a report of two males fighting. Both suspects were car parts distributors disputing “territorial rights”. One suspect’s ear lobe was torn off during the fight and the other sustained a large gash to the forehead and a bruised leg after he was struck by a wrench. The suspect with an injury to his ear was transported to the hospital. The incident is under review by the

District Attorney’s office. A felony “Hit and Run” occurred at Fremont and Grimmer (north) after a 16 year old male pedestrian entered the crosswalk and was struck by an older black Honda Civic driven by a Hispanic male. The driver of the Civic stopped and checked on the male, but then left the scene of the accident. The pedestrian suffered minor injuries. A residential burglary was reported at the Durham Green Apts. Forced entry was gained through the front door. A Sony PS3, laptop, jewelry and other possessions were stolen. Another residential burglary was reported from a garage on Vega Terrace through a side garage door. A television and tools were stolen. May 19: Officers responded to a call of shots fired at the Sikh Temple. Upon arrival, officers cleared the temple and the “shooter” was located. He did not have a gun and upon further investigation it was determined that there was no gun and the report was unfounded. The situation resulted from a domestic quarrel and the “shooter” was taken to jail for a court order violation. Officer Dudgeon heard a disturbance near Fremont Boulevard and Blacow Road and spotted two males fighting, one of them, the clerk of the 76 Gas Station at that intersection. One of the participants fled the scene but was caught after a brief chase. Officers Macdonald and Taylor arrived to assist. It was determined that the suspect, a juvenile, had just robbed the gas station of cigarettes and fought the clerk to get away. The suspect was taken to juvenile hall.

Newark Police Log COURTESY OF COMMANDER ROBERT DOUGLAS May 18: Two males entered the Food Maxx store on Cedar Boulevard at 3:18 a.m., one armed with a handgun, and robbed the store of cash. The suspects are described as black males in their late twenties to early thirties. One of the suspects is described as 6’0”, 200 lbs., wearing a hooded sweatshirt and glasses armed with a hand gun. The other suspect also wore a hooded sweatshirt and a rag on his head. Both fled by unknown means. No employees were harmed.

SUBMITTED BY MILPITAS FIRE DEPARTMENT On Tuesday, May 17 at 4:18 p.m., eight units from Milpitas Fire Stations 1, 2 and 4 responded to a report of sick employees and an unidentified odor at 1780 Clear Lake. First-in engine 2 reported a haze and odor within the business and all employees were evacuated. Milpitas Police controlled vehicular and pedestrian traffic; a command center was established and fire units investigated.

Those complaining of difficulty breathing were evaluated and released on scene. No one was transported to a hospital. A Hazardous Materials Investigator was requested to meet with the business and building owners to assure compliance and safety. It was determined that symptoms were caused by dental acrylic monomer. This incident involved nine fire units and two police units; no fatalities or injuries were reported. The scene was cleared of emergency personnel at 5:50 p.m.

AP WIRE SERVICE HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP), May 13 - An Oregon man practicing his Old West-style quick-draw skills with a handgun put a hole in a life-sized poster of a 1970s mob movie icon and destroyed a neighbor's flat-screen TV in the bargain. KGW-TV reports police took 27-year-old Travis Hood of Hillsboro, Ore., into custody after the shooting in which he blasted a hole in the poster of Al Pacino in his role as Michael Corleone in "The Godfather" films. The bullet traveled through the wall of his apartment and hit a neighbor's television. Police say Hood used a .357 magnum. No one was in the other apartment, and there were no injuries. Hood was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. It was unclear on Thursday afternoon whether Hood had hired an attorney. --Information from: KGW-TV, http://www.kgw.com/

eat poetry is still alive, as evidenced by the April Poetry Open Mic. Organized by the Fremont Area Writers (FAW), the evening featured readings by current Beat poets, the literary offspring of the original group. At the most recent reading series on April 21 at Paddy’ Coffee House in Union City, an audience of 20 or more poetry lovers gathered to hear poetry and prose, and to honor Poetry Month. Tony R. Rodriguez served as emcee for the evening and read from his new novel, “When I Followed the Elephant.” The book is a fascinating look at Desi Marquiso, a rather befuddled conservative teacher at a liberal Catholic high school in 2007. Then Rodriguez introduced poets David King, Marc Olmsted, and Peter Marti. Their work touched on varied geographical spots, including Hawaii and Los Angeles. King, involved with the Iowa City Writers’ Workshop in 2010, entertained the crowd with a poem, “The Trip to Venice Never Taken,” and Olmsted shared “The Trip to L.A.” Marti, a close friend of Beat legend Allen Ginsburg, read several poems, including a thoughtful piece written in 1960 entitled “My Great Uncle Fred.” Poetry lovers of the Beat era will likely want to peruse “Beatitudes: Golden Anniversary 1959 – 2009” edited by Latif Harris and Neeli Cherkovski, published in 2009. Members of the Fremont Area Writers concluded the lively evening as Bill Ballew recited a clever work, “T.V. Keeps the Lid On.” Bob Garfinkle, President of the California Writers Club, read selections from the anthology, “California Writers Club Poems 1932,” and Darwin Mathison treated the audience to a few of his innovative rhymes. Dawn Armstrong, FAW vice president, concluded the readings with an excerpt from her poetic novel, “Sensations,” leaving us with this thought: “Inspiration is a precious gift. Who do you inspire? Who inspires you?”

FAW’s Open Mics are ongoing, meeting the third Thursday of each month. While past events have been held at Barnes & Noble and the Union City Historical Museum, Paddy’s has recently become the new venue. Both writers and listeners are invited. FAW also has regular meetings which are open to all who like to write. The FAW is the Centennial Branch of the California Writers Club, and has been a recognized member since 2009; growing membership includes writers of all genres. Meetings are held at DeVry University, 6600 Dumbarton Circle, Room 204, in Newark on the fourth Saturday of every month from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. The next meeting on May 28 will feature novelist and poet Tony R. Rodriguez (emcee of the last Open Mic) who will read from his latest novel. He will also address finding a publisher and discuss the current status of Beat poetry. All writers, published or aspiring, are welcome to join the informative fun. Discover all the happenings on May 28. Another monthly meeting is the critique group, which meets the fourth Wednesday at Mission Coffee on Washington Boulevard in Fremont. Here six to eight members gather to critique each others work. Contact Jay Swartz, the Ink Spots editor, at triloci@gmail.com for more information.

Free lunchtime forum will clear up common misconceptions True or false? Breast cancer is the number one killer of American women. The answer is surprisingly false. “Many people think more women die of breast cancer than from any other cause,” says Mimi Lin, MD, a radiologist at Washington Hospital. Dr. Lin reviews and evaluates mammograms as part of Washington Hospital’s stateof-the-art digital mammography service. “One reason for this misconception is that there is so much publicity out there about the disease,” she continues. “In fact, more women die of lung cancer. Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in women. By far, the most common killer of all is still heart disease, for both men and women.” According to the American Cancer Society, about 40,000 women died of breast cancer in the U.S. during 2010. In 2007, the latest year of available statistics, more than 300,000 women died of heart disease. Here’s another question: True or false? If you have a lump in your breast, you have breast cancer. The answer is false again. “Breast lumps are relatively common, and most are not cancerous or life-threatening,” explains Dr. Lin. “The two major types of non-cancerous lumps are fibrocystic change— which can cause cysts, lumpy areas and thickening—and benign breast tumors.”

If you have a benign breast tumor, it is still important that your doctor know about it. The American Cancer Society states, “. . . some benign breast conditions, such as papillomas and

Dr. Lin. “And, we’ll leave time for questions from the audience, so we can do our best to answer them all.” As part of her presentation, Dr. Lin will answer questions like: Is breast cancer a woman’s disease or can men also get it? Is cancer contagious? Can antiperspirants or underwire bras cause breast cancer? Do mammograms prevent breast cancer or cause it? “We’ll also talk about whether breast cancer can be inherited, if young people or older people are at greater risk, and whether Asian women get breast cancer,” adds Dr. Lin. “These are all topics you may be concerned with because many people believe them to be true. Most myths have some basis in fact, so we want to talk about where they came from, and what’s true and what’s not.” The “Lunch ‘n Learn” forums at Washington Women’s It’s highly recommended that women have annual mammograms starting at age 40.

The program includes free breast self-examination instruction and a nurse coordinator who helps make sure patients get support and counseling throughout diagnosis, treatment and recovery. The program offers women seamless access to hospital-based services and a team approach to patientcentered care. Other services include a Breast Tumor Board, a Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer Series, Reach to Recovery volunteers, a Breast Cancer Support Group and Breast Care Conferences. Washington Hospital’s Digital Mammography Services offer a wide range of advanced diagnostic services in a comfortable setting. Read by board certified radiologists like Dr. Lin, diagnostic images are clearer than ever due to the Hospital’s state-of-the-art digital mammography system. In contrast with standard mammography, digital mammography can be manipulated to enhance image quality so a radiologist can make the best possible assessment. The doctor can zoom in, magnify and optimize different parts of the breast tissue which might decrease the need for additional images. With digital technology, mammograms are completed more quickly.

Visitors to the park will benefit from the improvements he and his volunteers have made. Muldoon and his crew reseeded lawns, sowed wildflower mix and planted low-maintenance plants in the gazebo area where they also placed two new benches. Newly planted flowering trees and vines around the picnic and playground area will provide shade for park users. Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy

Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America. A scout who attains this rank is called an Eagle Scout or Eagle. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men. The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, always an Eagle."

The Irvington High School student joined cub scouts in the first grade and became a boy scout in the fifth. He has earned a total of 26 merit badges, five more than the minimum 21 required towards becoming an Eagle; they include Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the World, In-

dian Lore, Oceanography, Personal Fitness and Personal Management. The idea for the project arose from discussions with Union City Grounds Manager Nelson Kirk whom Muldoon approached at the suggestion of his friend Ryan Foo who has previously worked with Kirk. “I spent five months work-

ing on this project. Preparation entailed a detailed, 54-page plan covering all aspects and eventualities. I feel that the venture helped develop my existing communication, problem-solving and planning skills. The advice of my Scout Master Paul Androwski, my Eagle Supervicontinued on page 28

junior prom, part-time jobs, and college applications. Irvington High School junior, Pearl Chang, decided to add to her list and become involved in a campaign to inform her community about the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). Chang has recently been chosen as a member of the newly implemented six-person high school leadership chapter coordinated by the Asian Liver Center (ALC) at Stanford University. Five of the board members are from the San Francisco Bay Area, and one from Southern California. All have extensive leadership experience and prior involvement with the Asian Liver Center. The Asian

ALC’s Youth Leadership Conference at Stanford University. This conference allowed her to gain a strong understanding of HBV and its danger to the Asian American community. Although she wasn’t able to start a Team HBV at Irvington High School, she convinced her health teacher to elaborate more on the dangers of hepatitis B in lectures. With her enthusiasm for increasing awareness of HBV, Chang was selected to become a member of ALC’s Jade Ribbon Youth Council. “I want to inform people about HBV because it is so dangerous, especially in the Bay Area,” said Chang. “With one

in ten Asian Americans infected with the virus, we need the find a solution to the problem now.” As a Co-Interchapter Board Member of Team HBV, she will be working on creative plans and projects for Hepatitis B Awareness Week and will be running a network of a dozen high school Team HBV chapters across the nation. Chang hopes to become a youth leader in the Jade Ribbon Campaign with this leadership role, and encourage more students to get involved. Other than being the Co-Interchapter Board Member of Team HBV, Chang is also an active member in her school’s Key Club and Leo Club. Outside of school, she is Secretary and a student leader of WCEO (Wisdom Culture and Education Organization), an Asian group. Stanford University intern Catherine Lu described the board as, “a great leadership opportunity for these high-achieving high school students to run a national network; its mission of eradicating global hepatitis B through community outreach makes it worth being a part of.” Sudoku Solutions

BY MICHELLE CHAPMAN AP BUSINESS WRITER NEW YORK (AP), May 17 - Home improvement retailers are evolving to meet the needs of budget-conscious consumers stuck in homes they can't sell. Home Depot Inc. is focusing more on affordable products and projects and Lowe's Cos. on improving customer services such as outdoor equipment repair - changes dictated by the companies' first-quarter results, which show customers holding onto their cash until it's the right time to spend. Home Depot, the largest U.S. home improvement chain, said Tuesday that its revenue edged down 0.2 percent to $16.82 billion for the quarter that ended May 1, missing Wall Street's $17.06 billion estimate. Lowe's, which reported quarterly its earnings Monday, saw its revenue drop 2 percent. Weather is critical to both chains, and the early spring quarter - their second-biggest in revenue after early summer typically prompts a flurry of seasonal purchases, including plants, patio furniture and barbeque grills. But harsh conditions blanketed most of the continued on page 17

nation for much of the first quarter, and shoppers stayed indoors. So Home Depot and Lowe's, knowing their customers will come in for spring products once the weather improves, are working now on new ways to keep them coming back. Home Depot raised its full-year earnings forecast, but Lowe's dampened its outlook. Home Depot executives said during a conference call Tuesday that their chain is beefing up offerings like paint and soft-sided tool storage as maintenance and repair - instead of major renovations - remain at the forefront of consumers' minds.

Shoppers all but abandoned big-ticket projects during the recession. Home Depot Chief Financial Officer Carol Tome said in an interview with The Associated Press that her company is offering a variety of cost-conscious options, such as cabinet re-facing, for customers who still want to upgrade their kitchens. This price-conscious approach helped contribute to a 1.5 percent increase in the dollar amount of the average transaction at Home Depot for the quarter. At Lowe's, the average receipt was nearly flat. Lowe's Chairman and CEO Robert Niblock also said during a Monday conference call that rising gas prices are pushing consumers to shop at whichever store is the most convenient. Based on store count, that would put shoppers in Home

Depot more often. Lowe's had 1,751 stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico as of April 29, dwarfed by Home Depot's 2,245 retail stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, 10 Canadian provinces, Mexico and China. To combat the convenience factor, Niblock says Lowe's is differentiating its services and products and opening new stores in targeted locations. Lowe's said Monday that its first-quarter net income fell 6 percent. Home Depot's Tome said, however, that it is too early to draw a correlation between gas prices and customer traffic. And her company said Tuesday that its net income rose 12 percent to $812 million, or 50 cents per share, up from $725 million, or 43 cents per share, a year earlier. That beat the 49 cents per share that analysts surveyed by FactSet expected on average. Mooresville, N.C.-based Lowe's lowered its full-year outlook to $1.56 to $1.64 per share on a revenue increase of about 4 percent, implying revenue of about $50.79 billion. It previously forecast earnings of $1.60 to $1.72 per share on a 5 percent revenue increase. Home Depot, based in Atlanta, increased its fiscal 2011 earnings forecast and now expects to earn $2.24 per share, up from $2.20. It kept its revenue forecast at 2.5 percent growth from 2010, when it took in $68 billion, implying revenue for 2011 of $69.7 billion. Wall Street predicts earnings of $2.30 per share on revenue of $69.72 billion. Shares of Home Depot gained 52 cents to $37.50 by mid-afternoon, while Lowe's stock slipped 9 cents $24.76.

remont Firefighters are set to host their Fourth Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament, benefiting the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). Taking place at the Sunol Valley Golf Club, the fundraiser is set for Monday, May 23. A year ago, Fremont’s Local 1689 raised more than $23,500, which helped to support the NFFF in its mission to honor firefighters who died in the line of duty, provide resources for surviving family members, and prevent future fire service fatalities.

Golf at the Fremont Firefighters 4th Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament is a best-ball scramble format, and the public is encouraged to participate. Pre check-in for the event will be on Monday morning at 11 a.m. with the first tee time at noon. Outback Steakhouse is donating a pre-golf lunch, and Groth Brothers Chevrolet will be offering several opportunities to win a year’s free lease on a new vehicle for a hole-in-one on a par-3 hole.

At the boys North Coast Section DI golf Tournament of Champions event at Contra Costa Country Club on Monday, May 16, the local schools didn’t fare well, but one individual golfer advanced. Representing the Mission Valley Athletic League, Irvington and Mission San Jose high schools both failed to qualify for the Nor Cal tournament. Irvington shot a team total of 415, while Mission shot a 456. Foothill High School won the tournament with a 384 team total. De La Salle High School also qualified as a team with its second-place 390; and Monte Vista High School nabbed the third and final team qualifier with its third-place 393. Carlos Briones of Moreau Catholic High School qualified for the NCS DI TOC with his performance at the DII qualifier a week prior. However, his tournament run ended on Monday. Briones shot an 81, missing the cut. Outside of the three teams that qualified for the next phase in the tournament, four individuals advanced as well. Jonathan Lin of Irvington was one of those four. Lin shot a 74 on the day, earning himself a spot at the Nor Cal Championship. Will Brueckner (72) of Acalanes High School, Cody Blick (73) of San Ramon Valley High School and Aaron Bronis (74) of Livermore High School were the only other individuals to advance. Lin will look to earn a spot at the California Interscholastic Federation State Championship with a strong performance at the Nor Cal Championship. It will be held on Monday, May 23, at Butte Creek Country Club in Chico.

an Francisco’s Chinatown is an integral piece of the city’s history. Situated at the edge of the 19th century harbor, the location was a prime position for catering to the needs of sailors and travelers. In the early 1800s, most of the Chinese immigrants were men from the Guangdong Province in the south of China. The discovery of gold in the California hills lured thousands of Chinese immigrants, just as it did Americans and Europeans from the east, all looking for the strike that would change their lives. But I’m not in the historical tour business. For that you need to walk through today’s Chinatown, to see the Chinatown of yesterday, with Rick Evans. I learned that when you walk through the fabled

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

Dragon Gate of Chinatown, you are not really in Chinatown. You are at the corner of Bush St. and Grant Avenue, but

the real, historical Chinatown officially starts when you cross California St. Note that a prominent store on Grant (the tourist street) is called “Asian Images” and that’s all you’ll be getting, unless you have the knowledge and guidance of Rick Evans, owner and creator of Chinatown Walking Tour. Like the Jasmine Fairy Maiden tea bud that flowers when you pour hot water over it, Chinatown’s life and secrets become visible as you walk the streets with Rick Evans. We were lucky enough to get a Groupon coupon for the walking tour, though the usual $40 per person fee is well worth the money. Dressed in comfortable shoes and clothes, we enjoyed every minute of the three hour walk. Crisscrossing the main streets, diving down alleys and side streets, and stopping at squares and churches that we had never before noticed, the three hours evaporated before we knew it. Chinatown is a world unto itself, with its own rules (mahjong gambling doesn’t count as illegal), its own traditions (women play poker for pennies, men for quarters), its own architecture and cuisine. The trick to really knowing Chinatown is separating the fake from the real, the new from the historical, and understanding the rift created by the 1906 Earthquake, Chinese politics, and tragic human bigotry. The ground on which Chinatown stands has undergone immense changes, from sea port

property, to ghetto, to coveted prime financial district real estate. Who lives there now, who owns that real estate, who profits and who loses are all questions to be asked. Evans provides the foundational answers to these inquiries, while pointing out the divided nature of this historical San Francisco neighborhood. Few people, outside of Chinatown, know that the roots of modern China sprang from these streets and alleys in San Francisco. The evidence of this still separated homeland flies

overhead today, if you know where to look. Quiz: What famous sculptor, whose statues grace the ground of Fremont’s Kaiser Pemanente, and the Chapel of the Roses, has a work depicting the father of modern China, in Chinatown? And who is that famous Chinese leader? This is where we hum “It’s a Small World After All.” Intermingled with the true and serious stories, though, are stops at a fortune cookie factory, a Daoist temple, restaurants, and a tea tasting shop. It is clear that Evans has a good

Page 21

relationship with his hosts, as we were politely greeted, or discreetly ignored, at every stop, and given a chance to buy or look as we wished. By the end of the tour, you will have learned a great amount of fascinating facts, and be ready for tea and good Chinese food. Mr. Evans recommendation, the R & G Restaurant, was safe and authentic, but not as delicious or exciting as it could be. I have to admit that our Tri-City area has, in my opinion, better Chinese cuisine. And our local restaurants are much less expensive. In order to fit everything in three hours, there was no time for emporium rapture. Evans supplies you with a map and notes, after the tour, so you can retrace your steps and spend all the time you want exploring the tour sites and surroundings. The next time we went, we felt an entirely new relationship with these streets.

REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY OF THE CITY OF FREMONT By: /s/ Elisa Tierney Redevelopment Agency Director FREMONT REDEVELOPMENT MAP OF MERGED PROJECT AREAS

IMPLEMENTATION PLAN MID-TERM REVIEW FOR THE FREMONT MERGED REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT (INCLUDING IRVINGTON, NILES, CENTERVILLE, AND INDUSTRIAL AREAS) NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Fremont (the “Agency”) will hold a public hearing on June 7, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, located at 3300 Capitol Ave, Fremont, California. The hearing may be continued from time to time until completed. The hearing is being conducted to receive testimony of all interested parties for the purpose of: (1) reviewing the Consolidated Amended and Restated Redevelopment Plan (the “Redevelopment Plan”) For The Fremont Merged Redevelopment Project (the “Merged Redevelopment Project”), which addresses redevelopment of the former Irvington, Niles, Centerville, and Industrial project areas, and the corresponding Five-Year Implementation Plan for the Merged Redevelopment Project adopted by the Agency on June 10, 2008, as amended and restated as of March 10, 2010 (the “Implementation Plan”); and (2) evaluating the progress of the Merged Redevelopment Project. The redevelopment plans for the Irvington and Niles redevelopment project areas were originally adopted in 1977. The redevelopment plan for the Industrial redevelopment project area was originally adopted in 1983, and the redevelopment plan for the Centerville redevelopment project area was originally adopted in 1997. All four redevelopment plans were amended in 1998 and the four projects were merged for purposes of tax increment financing. The plans were subsequently amended in 2010 for the purposes of increasing the limit on the amount of tax increment revenue that may be claimed from the Industrial area portion of the Merged Redevelopment Project, and consolidating the separate redevelopment plans into the single current Redevelopment Plan. Attached is a map showing the general locations of the four areas comprising the Merged Redevelopment Project within Fremont. The Agency’s current Implementation Plan sets forth, for the five-year planning period comprised of fiscal years 2008-09 through 2012-13, the specific goals and objectives of the Agency for the Merged Redevelopment Project, potential programs and projects, estimated expenditures proposed to be made during the planning period, and an explanation of how the goals and objectives, programs, and expenditures will eliminate blight within the Merged Redevelopment Project, and implement the affordable housing requirements of the California Community Redevelopment Law (Health & Safety Code Section 33000 et seq.). This hearing is being conducted pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 33490(a) and (c) and presents an opportunity for a mid-term review of the current Implementation Plan, and a progress evaluation of the Merged Redevelopment Project. Any persons wishing to comment on the Redevelopment Plan for the Merged Redevelopment Project or the current Implementation Plan may appear at the hearing and will be afforded an opportunity to be heard. Copies of the Redevelopment Plan for the Merged Redevelopment Project and the current Implementation Plan will be available prior to the public hearing for public inspection and copying at a cost not to exceed the cost of duplication at the offices of the Agency located at 39550 Liberty Street, Fremont, California 94538. To obtain a copy of these documents, or for further information regarding this hearing, please call Irene de Jong at (510) 494-4510 during the City of Fremont’s normal business hours.

Now another developer has surfaced to challenge the status quo. In response to a Preliminary Review Procedure (PRP) application to remove six tennis courts to “facilitate development of 44 singlefamily houses,” and subsequent revision reducing the number of homes to 28, a Fremont staff planner noted from 1973 development plans, “…the parcel in question was provided as private open space, and that this private open space was an integral part of the overall design of the planned district.” Staff response goes on to say, “It is not appropriate to now remove a significant amount of private open space for the development of this residential project based upon recalculations of density applied in 1973 when the land use planning of the entire neighborhood took its provision into account with all other factors of the original project.”

Kimber Park residents have formed an organization to continue their guardianship of the neighborhood and, so far, have been united

in defense of the open space and tennis/swim club property. More information is available at www.savekimberpark.com.

after McManus led the team offensively for the second straight season and earned back-to-back all-conference nods in 2010 and 2011. The senior capped his two-year Cal State East Bay career as the Pioneers' top hitter with a .333 batting average that ranked 14th in the CCAA. McManus also led the team in nearly every other offensive category including three in which he finished among the top 11 in the conference – slugging percentage (.492), total bases (90) and hits (61). During the season, McManus put together a team-best, 12-game hitting streak that included hits in wins over Central Washington and eventual CCAA champion UC San Diego. In the Pioneers' upset of the then topranked Tritons, McManus extended his hit streak to 10 games and drove in a run in the 8-4 victory. A Temecula native, McManus also led East Bay with 17 multi-hit games, including five in victories for the Pioneers. In games that Cal State East Bay won, McManus went .328 at the plate with 11 RBIs and 13 runs, and finished the campaign with an 8-14 performance with three RBIs and four runs in a threegame sweep of Grand Canyon. McManus was a staple on the hot corner and at designated hitter for the Pioneers as one of just two players to start every game this season. In 50 games, McManus finished with 53 putouts, 87 assists and just 12 errors in 152 defensive chances for the Pioneers. A junior transfer from Saddleback College, McManus finished his East Bay career among the best in program

history in hits and RBIs. As a junior in 2010, McManus set a new singleseason record for hits with 82 and caps his career ranked ninth all-time in that category with 143. McManus also drove in 89 runs during his two years as a Pioneer, ranking sixth alltime in career RBIs. The honor for McManus marks the fourth all-region recognition for East Bay student-athletes since returning to Division II competition during the 2009-10 season. Earlier this year men's soccer player Bryce Bookhamer was named to the NSCAA All-West Region Third Team, while volleyball players Kitona Offord and Brianna Bryant collected COBRA Magazine All-Region honors. McManus joins 23 other CCAA players on the NCBWA All-Region Team, including 12 players from the conference's three NCAA Tournament participants – UC San Diego, Cal Poly Pomona and Sonoma State. Among the CCAA's honorees were Player of the Year Travis Taijeron from the Broncos and Pitcher of the Year Tim Shibuya from the Tritons. UCSD and Cal Poly Pomona Head Coaches Dan O'Brien and Randy Betten shared the West Region Coach of the Year honors. The conference placed 12 on the 13-player All-West Region First Team. Cal State East Bay finished the season 10th in the CCAA standings and 18-32 overall. The Pioneers will lose eight seniors to graduation but return three of their top five hitters from 2011 and an All-CCAA Honorable Mention selection in starting pitcher Brandyn Bell for the 2012 campaign.

National Golf Coordinator Charlie Dickinson, Pittsburgh, Penn., fire chief-retired and former acting United States fire administrator, will speak about the work of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The Fremont Firefighters 4th Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament is one of nearly 40 regional golf tournaments that will be held across the United States in 2011 to benefit NFFF. Proceeds go directly to support the upkeep and future expansion of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Emmitsburg, Md., and enable surviving family members and coworkers of fallen firefighters to attend the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend held there each October. These funds also help to endow schol-

Gaumer scored at a high rate on a regular basis for Moreau including netting 21 at the senior all-star game. Michael Temple has verbally committed to Notre Dame de Namur for cross country. While at Moreau, Temple played four years of varsity baseball; two years of varsity cross country; and a year of varsity basketball. Temple discovered cross county in his junior year and instantly turned himself into the lead runner, guiding the boys team to the North Coast Section playoffs both years. Bianca Lemus will be joining Temple at Notre Dame de Namur and will continue her soccer career. Lemus played all four years at Moreau on the girls varsity soccer team. Out of her central midfielder position – typically where the leader of the team is positioned – Lemus led the Mariners in scoring three of the four years. In three years, she was also named to the first team all league.

While Castillo, Gaumer, Temple and Lemus are all signed and committed to their respective college for the fall, Moreau Catholic also celebrated the commitment of several more athletes who will not sign official letters of intent. Committing to play football are Nick Meares and Alex Den Bleyker for Pacific and Washington State, respectively; Shelby Long and Kyra Kawasaki will continue their softball careers, Long for ClaremontMcKenna and Kawasaki for Weber State; Andrew McIntire and Anika Adeni are both moving on to continue running cross country for CSU Monterey Bay and Boston University respectively; Crystal Paz is heading to Cal Berkeley for gymnastics; and Megan Scully is moving on to Chaminade University for basketball. (At time of press, Moreau was still waiting to hear on commitments of Andy Mitchell, Chico or SF State for basketball, and Kacey Holt, Howard or Metro for basketball.)

The Citizens Redistricting Commission was created by a vote of the people in November 2008 to draw the boundaries for legislative and Board of Equalization districts. An additional vote in November 2010 added Congressional districts. After a complex and thorough selection process, the Commission now has 14 members. The first eight commissioners – three Democrats, three Republican and two who are either Decline-to State or registered with another party – were selected by the independent state Auditor. These eight then chose the remaining six members. The Commission has finalized its schedule for public input hearings where they will receive testimony on how they should establish the new legislative districts.

Public participation in drawing these districts is critical to ensuring that communities have the strongest voice possible to express their preferences. The public is encouraged to present testimony about the community in which they live, describing the kind of people who live there, important issues, community centers and community history. Speaking up about their community is critical to ensuring district lines are drawn to keep their community whole and grouped with nearby communities with similar interests. The Commission would also like to know about communities which do not share common interests which could be placed in another district. Along with census data, publicly submitted comments will be used to assist the Commission when it begins drawing district boundaries. The Commission is taking testimony from local area residents before

The Bookworm The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3 years old and she never goes anywhere without a book. She lives on a hill in Wisconsin with two dogs and 11,000 books.

Your assistant puts up with a lot. She (and it’s almost always “she”) deals with grumpy customers and grouchy clients. She pretties up paperwork and prints presentations. When you can’t find things, she preternaturally knows where they are. She has the organization skills of a drill sergeant, the patience of a kindergarten teacher, and she speaks fluent You. You couldn’t find a better assistant. She has a pretty good boss. But in a notso-distant past, your relationship might have been very different; for one, she might have been he. Read about that and more in “Swimming in the Steno Pool” by Lynn Peril. If you’ve watched TV in the past three dozen years, you’re probably familiar with Ebeneezer Scrooge’s longsuffering clerk, Bob Cratchit. Men like Cratchit were the “secretaries” of their time, mostly because ladies didn’t work. Besides, male clerks had a good chance of taking over the business someday – something refined women couldn’t do. When staffing shortages occurred during the Civil War, the U.S. government hired women to do “dainty” jobs, a foot-in-the-door that kept the door wide open. In 1870, says Peril, only five female shorthand writers were employed in New York City. Fifty years later, 90 percent of all steno-typist jobs were held by women. Grab any young women’s magazine from mid-last-century, Peril says, and you’ll find dozens of ads for secretarial schools. While some women sought training so they’d have a career “to fall back on”, others became secretaries because there were

few alternate choices for those who wanted (or needed) work. Oftentimes, though, being a secretary (a title that fell out of favor just recently) was what a woman aspired to: Peril, self-admitted secretary, was captivated by the “glamour” of the office job held by a beloved big-city aunt. But being a secretary was no star-studded gig. “Office wives” were expected to work overtime with a smile and to take better care of The Boss than his real spouse did: getting his coffee, keeping his calendar, making reminders, plus doing her job. A secretary was charming and ladylike, dressed demurely, never smoked or drank, happily postponed lunch if needed, and was supernaturally organized. And as the years went by, she taught The Boss one important lesson: be nice. She might be “just a” secretary today, but she could be his boss tomorrow. Looking for a lighthearted take on business history? Then file this away: “Swimming in the Steno Pool” is fun to read. Author Lynn Peril says that office work has been good to her, but she uses this book to show that it might not have been so for other women at other times. Peril’s discoveries are surprising (coffee breaks were unheard-of until WWII), shocking (it was almost illegal to hire a married woman in 1939), amusing (a responsible job was once seen as “good training” for marriage), and more satisfying than an empty inbox. If you’ve got support staff to appreciate, you’ll both appreciate what you’ll learn here. For you, “Swimming in the Steno Pool” is your type of book. c.2011, W.W.

BY ADAM WEINTRAUB ASSOCIATED PRESS SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP), May 13 - A quarter of all state parks would close because of budget cuts approved by the state Legislature - from redwood groves along the North Coast to historic mining sites in the Sierra foothills and the Salton Sea in Southern California - under plans announced Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown's administration. The state would close 70 of its 278 state parks, said California State Parks Director Ruth Coleman. The park system will cut services this summer and begin shutting parks in September, with all 70 closings completed by July 2012, she said. The parks system hopes to minimize layoffs, possibly shifting some of the roughly 200

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

workers who would be affected by the closings into vacant positions within the department, said Tony Perez, the state's deputy director for park operations. There are almost 2,300 full-time positions in the state parks and about 500 of them are open. “We regret closing any park,” Coleman said in a prepared statement, “but with the proposed budget reductions over the next two years, we can no longer afford to operate all parks within the system.” The state will start seeking partnerships with local governments and nonprofits that could keep some of the parks open, she said. The cuts are the result of a bill Brown signed into law in March that trims $11 million from the parks budget in the fiscal year that begins July 1 and $22 million the next fiscal year. That

trims the system's 2012-2013 budget from the state general fund to $99 million. “This is a 40 percent reduction to the general fund parks budget since 2007-2008,” said John Laird, California Secretary for Natural Resources. The closings will be “devastating,” said California State Parks Foundation president Elizabeth Goldstein, affecting sites in 36 of the state's 58 counties. “At a time when local communities are struggling to be part of the state's recovery, this proposal shuts the door to a vital part of our economy,” she said in a statement. The foundation questioned whether many of the parks realistically could be closed, even with roads blocked and buildings locked, because they have so many entry points. Unsupervised parks would be targets for van-

dalism and other illegal activity, jeopardizing the preservation of California's historic and natural resources, Goldstein said. Coleman said the closed parks would be put in “caretaker status” with occasional checks for maintenance and security, but there will be a learning curve because the state has never closed parks before. “I don't want to give the impression that we're just mothballing them and walking away,” she said. Among the parks scheduled to close are the Governor's and Leland Stanford mansions in Sacramento, the Antelope Valley Indian Museum, and the Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park. The closings span the state, from the Morro Strand and Moss Landing state beaches to the Salton Sea State Recreation Area and Palomar

Mountain State Park. They include popular recreation spots near cities, such as China Camp State Park north of San Francisco, and isolated nature spots including Plumas-Eureka and South Yuba River state parks. The department said it based the decision on a variety of factors, including the parks' statewide significance, protecting the most important natural and cultural resources, public access, whether they have private or nonprofit partnerships and any grant or deed restrictions. The parks that will remain open account for about 92 percent of the visits to the system, officials said, but those on the closing list draw 5.6 million visitors a year.

BY DEREK KRAVITZ AP REAL ESTATE WRITER WASHINGTON (AP), May 17 - For American homebuilders, it hardly feels like an economic recovery. Nearly two years after the recession ended, the pace of construction is inching along at less than half the level considered healthy. Single-family home building, the bulk of the market, has dropped 11 percent in that time. Builders are struggling to compete with waves of foreclosures that have forced down prices for previously occupied homes. The weakness is weighing on the economy: Though new homes represent a small portion of overall sales, they have an outsized effect on jobs. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new-home

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

construction plummeted in April to a seasonally adjusted rate of 523,000 homes per year. A major drop in volatile apartment building pulled down the monthly figures. And strong tornadoes and flooding also disrupted construction projects throughout the South. Still, through the first four months of this year, the pace of new-home construction is barely ahead of 2009's - the worst year on records dating back a half-century. “There are very few signs of recovery in residential construction,” said Celia Chen, senior director at Moody's Analytics. “Absent evidence of stronger demand for housing, homebuilders will remain reticent to put up new homes.” The disappointing construction data contributed to a selloff on Wall Street. The Dow

Jones industrial average fell more than 110 points in mid-day trading. Stocks also fell after Hewlett Packard lowered its earnings outlook for the rest of the year, and the Federal Reserve said temporary parts shortages out of Japan led to the first decline in factory output in 10 months. The April drop in new-home construction was largely because apartment and condominium building plunged more than 28 percent. Single-family home construction, which makes up roughly 80 percent of the market, fell about 5 percent. Building permits, a gauge of future construction, fell 4 percent. “The underlying trends, as far as we can tell, are about flat, at a very low level,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics. High unemployment and tighter lending standards have greatly reduced the number of potential buyers who could qualify for a mortgage. And those who are eligible have more incentive to buy a previously occupied home.

Page 31

The median price of a new home was about 34 percent higher in March than the median price for a re-sale. That's more than twice the markup in healthy housing markets. In some cities, prices are half of what they were before the housing market collapsed in 2006 and 2007. Many potential buyers who could qualify for loans are worried that prices will fall further. Others are hesitant to put their own homes on the market when prices are dropping. The housing market has traditionally powered economic recoveries. Each new home built creates an average of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in taxes, according to the National Association of Home Builders. In previous recessions, housing accounted for 15 to 20 percent of overall economic growth. In the first post-recession year, between 2009 and 2010, housing contributed just 4 percent to the economy. Harsh weather has hampered construction this year. Violent tornados and flooding along the Mississippi River were major factors in a 23 percent drop in building through-

out the South, analysts said. Reconstruction efforts might lead to a ``bounce back in May,'' according to Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Home Depot and Lowe's Cos, the nation's biggest home improvement retailers, both said bad weather led to lower revenue during the FebruaryApril quarter. The worsening housing market and higher gas prices also cut into their sales. Home construction activity was uneven across the rest of the country. It fell nearly 5 percent in the Northeast but rose almost 4 percent in the West and nearly 16 percent in the Midwest. On Monday, the builders' trade group said its survey of homebuilder sentiment was unchanged at 16. That's the same level it has been for six of the past seven months. Any reading below 50 indicates negative sentiment about the market. The index hasn't been above that level since April 2006. And when asked about where they see sales of single-family home heading over the next six months, the builders surveyed offered their most pessimistic outlook since September.

T

he Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) are reaching out to minority and low-income communities for assistance in the development of Plan Bay Area, a 25-year transportation investment and land-use strategy for the nine-county region from 2015 through 2040. The agencies are working with 14 community-based organizations to help ensure people in communities of concern have opportunities to make themselves heard about how the region should grow. The communitybased outreach is happening concurrently with Plan Bay Area public workshops being held this spring in each of the nine Bay Area counties. By contracting with more community-based organizations and scheduling more events, MTC has stepped up its out-

reach effort for the Plan Bay Area process, which is scheduled to conclude in the spring of 2013. Plan Bay Area will be the region’s first transportation and land-use plan to incorporate the Sustainable Communities Strategy mandated by state Senate Bill 375, which was enacted in 2008. “We’re want direct input from people about what they think will work best in their communities,” said MTC Chair and San Mateo County Supervisor Adrienne Tissier. “A critical part of this effort is hearing from people who live in under-served communities. That’s the only way to build a long-term transportation and land-use plan that meets the needs of the entire region.” “The community-based meetings are designed to accommodate the needs of people who may not have the income, transportation options or time off work to attend one of the county workshops,” explained MTC Public Information Offi-

Doing real science with NASA

A

girl is on her hands and knees one evening searching for something under the street light. “What are you looking for?” you ask. “My contact lens,” she replies. “I think it popped out over there in that alley.” “Then why are you looking for it here?” She replies, “Because the light is better, silly.” Well, that doesn’t make sense. But sometimes looking for something where the light is better does make sense. Using powerful telescopes, astronomers have found over 500 “exoplanets”—planets outside our solar system. However, telescopes cannot usually see an exoplanet directly. Looking for an exoplanet in the bright glare of its star is like looking for a mosquito in the glare of a headlight—from a mile away! Fortunately for planet hunters, exoplanets are abundant. And some stars make it a lot easier for astronomers to find their planets. So, like looking for a lost object where the light is better, astronomers can look for planets where lighting conditions are more favorable for finding them. Small, young stars, called red dwarfs, are cooler than larger or older stars like our Sun. And because they are young—under 100 million years (for a star,

This artist’s concept shows a red dwarf star with three planets. Because the star is dimmer and cooler than most stars and its planets are warmer and brighter, telescopes may be able to actually see the planets directly.

that’s young!)—their planets are newer and warmer and brighter than older planets. So, with a cooler star and warmer planets, astronomers are more likely to actually see the planets. The planets will still look pretty fuzzy. But using special instruments on the telescope, astronomers can learn what’s in the planet’s atmosphere and other valuable information. NASA’s Galaxy Evolution Explorer space telescope sees ultraviolet light—a kind of light our eyes can’t see. The light from these young red dwarf stars contains a larger proportion of ultraviolet than more mature stars like our Sun do. So

Galaxy Evolution Explorer has helped to identify lots of these red dwarfs, even though, overall, they are very faint. Now astronomers know where the “streetlights” are— the best places to look for lost objects, or new planets! How do astronomers know how far away a star or galaxy is?

Festival celebrates ‘Ready, Set, Blessed Virgin Mary Inflate!’ SUBMITTED BY MADELANE RAMOS SUBMITTED BY DACE DE LA FORET It’s time to join efforts once again in bringing an important boating safety issue – life jacket wear – to the forefront and set a world record along the way. The National Safe Boating Council (NSBC), in partnership with the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC), invites boating safety professionals and the boating community to participate in the “Ready, Set, Inflate!” event on Saturday, May 21. Participants will gather in cities around the globe to heighten awareness of inflatable life jackets. This year, the NSBC and CSBC will tally not only the number of participants who inflate their inflatable life jackets during the event, but also those who wear an inherently buoyant life jacket. “We hope this year’s ‘Ready, Set, Inflate!’ event not only increases life jacket wear and safety efforts, but also the number of participants in the world record day,” said Virgil Chambers, executive director of the NSBC. “Ready, Set, Inflate!” will usher in National Safe Boating Week, this year May 21-27. The goal of National Safe Boating Week is to educate and inform the boating public about boating safety, specifically life jackets. Educating the boating public about the safety and comfort of inflatable life jackets has been a main focus of the North American Safe Boating Campaign. Last year, 1,154 North American participants “inflated” at the same time. That number increased to 1,569 when 415 Australians “inflated” on July 30, 2010 at the Sydney International Boat Show. “What better way to inspect and test your inflatable life jacket each year, while also having some fun and helping to set a world record,” Chambers added. Local events will be held in Fremont and Oakland; Fremont’s event will be hosted by the California Department of Boating and Waterways and take place at Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area at noon. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary hosts the Oakland event at 2200 Livingston Street, in front of West Marine near the entrance to Coast Guard Island at noon. “The future of safe boating needs events like ‘Ready, Set, Inflate!’ and the Canadian Safe Boating Council and our partners are excited to be involved with this event once again,” said Bob Minielly, Chair of the Canadian Safe Boating Council. “This event is educational, fun and one of the only times you hear about inflation being a good thing!” For more information, please visit www.ReadySetInflate.com or www.SafeBoatingCampaign.com.

lores de Mayo and Santacruzan Festival, a Marian Celebration during the month of May is a traditional Filipino celebration of thanksgiving and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. At each Sunday Mass, a procession of children portraying angels offer flowers to our Blessed Mother. The celebration culminates with the Santa Cruzan event on Saturday, May 21 at the Old Mission (Fremont), a beautiful flower festival to commemorate Queen Helena's discovery of the Holy Cross of Jesus. Children will participate in a procession of historic biblical personalities such as queens, angels and the various titles of Mary. The procession begins at 10 a.m. followed by Mass at 11 a.m.; a reception will be held immediately after Mass. For more information, contact Madelane Ramos at (650) 796-1078

around the state that rely on tourism dollars, said Gina Zottola, executive director of the Crescent City/Del Norte County Chamber of Commerce. Crescent City's port was damaged by tsunami waves spawned by the March 11 earthquake in Japan, and the

remote county has a jobless rate of more than 14 percent. Tourism is a significant part of the local economy. The Del Norte Coast Redwoods park with more than 65,000 visitors in the fiscal year ending in July 2010 - is 7 miles south of Crescent City and is

one of several state and national parks in the area that draw tourists. “Closing the park, that's very disheartening,” Zottola said. There's no guarantee that people who can't get campsites at the closed park will find them elsewhere or stay at hotels instead,

she said. “Obviously, it's a cause for concern.” The park system will do its best to honor reservations already made for campsites and other services this summer but might have to shift some patrons to other sites because service cuts may shut some

camping areas, Coleman said. Brown is scheduled to release his updated proposal to close the remaining $15.4 billion state budget deficit on Monday. If the proposal includes additional cuts to the parks system, the list may grow, Coleman said.

The Press Release dated May 18, 2011 is reprinted below verbatim: Newark Mayor David W. Smith has announced that he will not seek re-election this November. Mayor Smith is currently serving his 16th consecutive term as Mayor of the City of Newark. He was first elected Mayor in March of 1978. He was elected to the Newark City Council in March of 1976. Mayor Smith is the most senior Mayor currently serving in California, and is second in the Mayoral seniority in the United States. Mayor Smith has been a Trustee (Executive Committee) of the United States Conference of Mayors since 1994. During his tenure with the U.S. Conference of Mayors, he served as Chair of the Membership Committee for several years, and was instrumental in growing the membership of the Conference. Locally Mayor Smith is a Past President of the Alameda County Conference of Mayors and a Past Chair of the Alameda County Transportation Authority. He currently chairs the Newark Redevelopment Agency, the Newark Community Development Advisory Committee, and the Newark Disaster Council.

In a brief telephone conversation to be followed by a comprehensive interview with TCV, Mayor Smith said that it was time to pursue other interests; an expanding family including grandchildren and a great grandchild foremost in his mind. Although the Mayor will continue to live in the City of Newark and support the community, he has no plans for further official council duties. Look for a report of an in-depth conversation with Mayor Smith in another issue of Tri-City Voice.
