Celebrating America BY JULIE GRABOWSKI PHOTOS BY DON JEDLOVEC Jean-Paul Sartre believed, “Better to die on one's feet than to live on one's knees.” To Benjamin Franklin, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Abraham Lincoln declared, “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.” According to Robert Frost, “Freedom lies in being bold.” For Nelson Mandela, “to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” The definitions of freedom are vast and varied, but it is this singular word that sparks our celebrations every July 4th. This is the time we honor the birth of our great nation and all the blessings and freedoms we are afforded as its citizens. We remember those who have fought long and numerous battles so that we might carry out our own notions of liberty and freedom, safe continued on page 11 INDEX It’s a date . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3

Friday and Saturday Only! SUBMITTED BY CHRISTOPHER BOORAS What do you get when you cross A Chorus Line on your way Into The Woods to rescue a Drowsy Chaperone and stumble your way into a Little Shop of Horrors on Avenue Q where you meet a Man of La Mancha battling a Wicked windmill that thinks Anything Goes. You get a very long sentence and a BROADWAY MASHUP! Don't miss this hysterical Summerfest Fundraising Entertaining Spectacular featuring past stars of Summerfest, students and local celebrities. In the spirit of bringing back the 35 year tradition of stage musicals, we've dropped the prices to $15 and $12. (I recommend the $15 seats because they are amazingly comfortable and center). We also have several exciting movie musical sing-a-longs coming up… Sing'n in the Rain, The Lion King, The Muppets (yes the brand new one), The Sound of Music and for the older kids, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. See smithcenter.com for all the details.

The Bookworm

“The Power of Reputation”

Page 7

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.

by Chris Komisarjevsky It may be just your imagination, but the phone isn’t ringing as much as it used to. People aren’t coming in the door quite as often, either, and you’re not sure why. It could be the economy, but that’s supposed to be getting better. It could be the market, or the fickleness of the buying public. Maybe people just don’t know enough about your business. Or maybe they do know all about it, and that’s why the phone isn’t ringing as much. First impressions count, but so do seventh and twelfth ones. In the new book “The Power of Reputation” by Chris Komisarjevsky, you may learn how to protect the best asset you and your business have. Chances are, you don’t own the only business that does what you do. You undoubtedly have competitors and your customers know how to find them. But, says Komisarjevsky, a “good reputation is the reason [customers] choose you.”

The best way to make sure you’re looked upon as favorably as possible, then, is to build a positive reputation because what clients think of you, how they perceive your business, and how you deal with customers are make-orbreak factors in corporations and careers. Building a good reputation is done by heeding the three critical components: character, communication, and trust. “The most powerful way to build a successful career is through the strength of your personal character,” says Komisarjevsky. Commitment and drive contribute, too, as do passion, loyalty, and good judgment. Show

your employees and clients that no job is beneath you. Reach out to co-workers and bring your interests to work with you.

Be authentic, and care about those around you. Give people face-time when communicating with them. Ask questions and pay attention. Videotape yourself as practice for public speaking. “Communicate by example” and learn to motivate others with your words. To earn trust, practice humility and be willing to share power. Rise above politics, be a good listener, and know how to overcome threats to your reputation. Finally, know how to apologize because even the most reputable person makes mistakes … Sounds pretty basic? Yup, and repetitious, too. Author Chris Komisarjevsky has a lot of good points in this book. Readers will learn a thing or two, but they’ll learn it over

and over and over. There are, after all, only so many ways to discuss trust, communication, and character. I was also rather confused as to the target of this book. On one hand, it seems to be for successful business owners who probably already enjoy a good reputation. On the other hand, this book isn’t for newbies, either, because some of the recommendations seem meant for C-Level experience. And then there are the overgeneralizations… Overall, I think this book might be a nice checklist if you’re fierce about your public face. I can see new MBA grads reading it. It might be great for anyone who’s fallen from grace, but most good business owners already know what’s in here. For them, “The Power of Reputation” just won’t ring well. c.2012, Amacom $22.00 / $25.00 Canada 210 pages, includes index

SUBMITTED BY LUPE GONZALEZ Hunger and need do not recognize boundaries. Due to the economic recession and the high cost of living in the Bay Area, the Alameda County Community Food Bank is seeing an increase in requests for assistance from wealthier areas in addition to the requests it receives from the less wealthy areas of the County. Alameda County Library is partnering with the Alameda County Community Food Bank to help meet County residents’ requests for assistance. Alameda County Community Food Bank has placed permanent food barrels in the County’s libraries for food donations. The public is asked to donate non-perishable food items. "Donating non-perishable food items is one of the best ways to ensure that we're taking care of low-income families and individuals,'' said Supervisor Nate Miley, President of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. "All of our residents deserve access to nutritious food to start and support healthy neighborhoods." Food donations can be dropped off at the County libraries during open hours. To learn more about Alameda County Library, visit our website at www.aclibrary.org.

Diablo Canyon nuke plant reactor now at full power AP WIRE SERVICE SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP), A reactor at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant on the central California coast has returned to full power after a two-month refueling and maintenance project. Pacific Gas & Electric took the Unit 1 reactor and the twin-reactor plant out of service on April 23. The San Luis Obispo County Tribune (http://bit.ly/OmGqd3) says it was brought up to full power on Friday. Utility spokesman Blair Jones said Tuesday that operators used the planned outage for refueling to replace control room equipment with new digital devices for better plant monitoring. Diablo Canyon produces enough electricity to power more than 3 million homes. Information from: The Tribune, http://www.sanluisobispo.com

n addition to responding to structure fires, emergency medical calls, technical rescues, hazardous materials incidents and an assortment of other emergencies, the Fremont Fire Department also mitigates wildland fires. Wildland fires are fires that involve vegetation and typically become threatening when fuels such as grass, brush, and trees are dry and adjacent to communities. This area called the “interface zone” is typical in many of the communities on the east side of Fremont. Therefore the Fremont Fire Department has personnel and equipment with the capability to fight wildland fires. A type 3 fire engine which has off-roading capability, lightweight hose, wildland tools, and the capacity to carry four firefighters and about 500 gallons of water has become the standard wildland fire fighting apparatus in California. In Fremont there are five type 3 engines strategically placed at different stations throughout the city in order to provide the most effective response. One of these type 3 fire engines is placed at station 5 in Warm Springs and happens to be where I’m stationed for the third portion of my probationary period While at station 5 I’ve had a great experience responding to a wide variety of emergencies with another very experienced crew and I’ve learned a lot in the process. Most recently, my training has been focused on how both the Fremont Fire Department and the state of California fight wildland fires. In Fremont, the response to a vegetation fire depends on the

weather and the area of the city as certain areas have a more hazardous interface zones and therefore require more resources. On “Red Flag Days” when the weather is hot, dry and windy, five fire engines and two Battalion Chiefs are dispatched to potential fires. Once the Battalion Chief has an idea of how large or threatening the fire is, more resources are ordered if necessary. In addition to local municipal resources, Cal Fire, the state firefighting agency, provides resources located in crucial areas throughout the state. Cal Fire is one of the largest departments in the country with nearly 8,000 paid firefighters and is responsible for coordinating efforts to mitigate most large scale vegetation fires in California. Because of the teamwork between local municipalities and Cal Fire, large scale destructive vegetation fires in California are held in check and residents of California are able to live in interface zones which have traditionally been considered too risky to inhabit. Last week, I was fortunate enough to take part in the annual Camp Parks wildland burn

drill. This training was a great opportunity to get hands-on practice at some of the tactics Fremont Fire and other local municipalities use to combat vegetation fires. In addition to reviewing progressive hose lays which use large amounts of hose to extinguish fires with water, we trained on backfiring operations. Backfiring is a commonly used technique in which crews purposely start controlled fires to burn vegetation fuels ahead of the main body of fire so that the fire essentially burns itself out due to lack of fuel. This tactic is extremely useful when water supplies are limited and is pretty amazing when used correctly. Because Camp Parks is situated on thousands of acres of dry fuel, it is necessary to keep these fuels under control during summer months. The drill serves not only as excellent training for local fire departments, but also is an efficient way to control fire danger at the base. Hopefully we will have another quiet wildland season in California. However, if fires do start, I have no doubt that the state as a whole is prepared to keep destruction to a minimum.

Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. This topic is played out every where I look. Every level of government is trying to create jobs. They are trying at the local level, the state level and even the federal level. But the results aren’t there. I hear daily from constituents, neighbors and friends that they are in danger of losing their home and financial stability due to the loss of jobs. What can the County do? Is there any role the County can play to alleviate the hardship so many residents are facing? To answer that question, I have planned an economic summit this August in partnership with Supervisor Mike Wasserman to allow local residents and businesses to provide real time solutions and ideas that the County can implement. Please join me in the Board Chambers at the County Government Center, 70 W Hedding Street, San Jose, at the following dates and times to offer your suggestions: • Green Economy: Tuesday, August 7, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. • Healthcare: Friday, August 10, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. • Small Business: Monday, August 13, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. Even if you are unable to attend I invite you to watch and listen on the Internet from the County’s website at www.sccgov.org.

Organized along three policy areas, I am bringing together some of the smartest folks in our County to have a discussion. The discussion will be centered on what is happening today and what can we influence for tomorrow. It will provide answers to the question of how we might foster new and existing industries to succeed and create jobs for our residents. One of the areas that we will be focusing on is Agribusiness and Small Business. While most of the fields and orchards of the Valley of Heart’s Delight have been built on, I’m sure many of you are aware of wineries and garlic production in South County. But do you know how important these and other agricultural operations are to the overall health of our County? If we could find ways to make it easier for them to expand they could hire more residents and increase the tax base. Another area is in emerging energy generation. Right now all the emphasis is on solar. But what if, five years from now, there are other technologies unknown today. While we should continue to look at opportunities in the solar field, we shouldn’t put all of our eggs in one basket. We should be examining other technologies so

that we are primed to seize opportunities when they emerge. We should foster innovation where we can. Although this isn’t strictly the work of the County we can be a regional leader in finding ways to standardize permitting processes around the region. There isn’t any reason for every city to have different requirements. The final area will be centered on healthcare and biotechnology. Just like the conversation about solar, the healthcare field should be monitored and evaluated for where they will be in five years. If we calibrate our efforts to hit that mark, we have the ability to foster businesses that will create jobs centered on long term careers and build for the future. These are just a few of the ideas that we know that can improve the local economic climate. If you have other thoughts or ideas on ways that the County can improve its services to benefit local businesses, please join me and the Board of Supervisors at this economic summit. For more information, visit www.sccgov.org/economsummit. If you have any questions or comments related to these economic summits or any other topic, please contact me at 408299-5030 or dave.cortese@bos.sccgov.org.

Seals Step Up Despite Sharks Loss SUBMITTED BY TRACY UYEDA On Saturday June 23 the Seals were hosted by the spirited Highlands Sharks. Hawaii was the theme and there was no shortage of aloha printed shirts and island décor. Swimming under mostly clouds and an occasional spread of sunshine, the Seals swam a very tough meet against the closely matched Highlands Sharks. Last season the Seals met the Sharks in their home opener and won by 87 points. Today – the Seals really stepped up – but fell short losing by about the same margin they won by last season. The final score was 487 to 587. Posted on Facebook was a shout out from Assistant Coach Desiree Fasolis - “Hey Seals, the official score was 587.5 (Highlands) to 487.5 (Seals). Great job today; there were LOTS of awesome swims! Keep it up!” Head Coach Robb Herndon announced the swimmers of the week. The Seals are proud of all their swimmers, however each week special

recognition is awarded to four swimmers whose efforts, dedication to attending practices, and performance go over and above. This week, the Seals recognized Bethany Kiang, Armand Shah, Kami Mak, and Carlos Gonzales. Due to a lean swim roster this week – Matthew Lin was asked to race in a higher age bracket. Originally scheduled to swim in the 1314 boys Medley Relay he agreed to swim up in the 15-18 event. His heart, determination, and commitment to the team carried him through as he found himself standing on the block among swimmers over twice his size. The crowds cheered the team on to a strong second place finish in standings – but it was certainly a blue ribbon finish in pride and determination. “I was a little nervous – but after I was in the water all I thought about was swimming my best.” commented Matthew Lin. Strong performances were posted by many of the Seals. Finishing first in all their events were

Report on Title IX’s promise of gender equity SUBMITTED BY TOM LANSWORTH As the nation marks the 40th anniversary of the passage of the landmark Title IX civil rights law this month, a new report calls on policymakers to commit more resources and attention to strengthen enforcement of the law’s ban on sex discrimination in education. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) released the following statement by AFT Executive Vice President Francine Lawrence in conjunction with a recent Capitol Hill briefing on the National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education’s report, “Title IX at 40: Working to Ensure Gender Equity in Education.” Also AFT members were among those participating in the Title IX 40th Anniversary Celebration at the White House. “As we celebrate the progress we have made since the enactment in 1972 of Title IX’s promise of equal treatment and opportunity for boys and girls in our schools—and for young men and women in our colleges and universities—we must also recognize that our journey to equality is not complete. “While Title IX may be best known by Americans for its impact on scholastic sports, it is about much more than athletics. If properly applied and enforced, this important law offers opportunities for advancement in many other endeavors.

“For example, as this report and research by the American Association of University Women make clear, women are still greatly underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The law also could help protect girls and women from bullying in school based on gender—behavior now understood to be a form of sex discrimination. “The AFT is proud to be a member of the National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education (NCWGE), which produced this new report. Title IX protects all students—male and female—from discrimination on the basis of sex. We must all be watchful to make sure that new policies and practices do not violate the commitment we have made to equality.” Highlights from the Report: Title IX mandates equal opportunity for all students—kindergarten through postgraduate school—regardless of sex. Studies show that Title IX has made greater educational opportunities available for students of both sexes. Title IX has increased female participation in sports exponentially. At the same time, athletic participation among male students has continued to rise over the last 40 years. Opportunities in sports still lag for female students. In addition, participation varies among groups, with fewer than two-thirds of African-American and Hispanic girls playing sports, compared with more than three-fourths of Caucasian girls.

Girls and women have made great progress in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. Nevertheless, more work is needed to overcome stereotypes about male and female abilities that can limit access to the STEM areas of study and professions. Barriers remain high for girls and women seeking to enter educational and career programs in areas such as information technology, construction, manufacturing, auto engineering and other skilled trades. Despite efforts to curb sexual harassment—and Title IX’s protections against such treatment in all of a school’s programs or activities—this form of discrimination remains prevalent in schools and on college campuses. More than half of girls and 40 percent of boys in grades 7 through 12 reported being sexually harassed during the 2010-11 school year. Despite the protections extended by Title IX, pregnant and parenting students continue to face discrimination in school, including being pushed into separate instructional programs, inequitable absence policies, and exclusion from extracurricular activities.

Santa Clara to appeal 49ers stadium decision AP WIRE SERVICE SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP), Santa Clara plans to appeal an oversight board's decision to pull $30 million in funding from the new 49ers stadium. City officials tell the San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/MPYSsw) they will ask the state Department of Finance to review last week's decision by the board. The board consists of officials from around Santa Clara County. It was given control of the money after the state scrapped redevelopment agencies. Voters had earmarked the $30 million in redevelopment funds for the stadium. But the oversight board said the money would be better spent elsewhere. The issue could end up in court. In the meantime, both city and team officials say construction on the $1.2 billion stadium will continue.

US consumer confidence slipped in June BY ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP RETAIL WRITER NEW YORK (AP), Americans can't seem to shake their uneasy feeling about the economy.

Consumer confidence fell in June for the fourth straight month as worries about the economy outweighed relief at the gas pump, according to a private research group. The Conference Board said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index is at 62. That's down from the 64.4 reading in May and the 63.2 analysts were expecting. The index remains well below the 90 reading that indicates a healthy economy – a level it hasn't been near since the recession began in December 2007. But it's far from the alltime low of 25.3 reached in February 2009. The indicator is widely watched because consumer

they are asked to rank their employers on company conditions, direction, execution, career path, managers, pay and benefits. Nearly 400 Fremont Bank employees responded to the survey. “At Fremont Bank, we strive to ensure our associates are rewarded for their hard work and given every opportunity to succeed,” said Fremont Bank President Andy Mastorakis. “This recognition is a testament to the quality of all Fremont Bank professionals and our commitment to their ongoing development and personal well-being.” spending, including major items like health care, accounts for 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. The index illustrates that Americans are worried about hiring, home values, the stock market and a worsening European economy that some fear will hurt the U.S. “Consumers were somewhat more positive about current conditions, but slightly more pessimistic about the short-term outlook,” said Lynn Franco, director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board in a statement. “If this trend continues, spending may be restrained in the short-term.” Worries about job and income growth seemed to weigh the heavi-

est on consumers in the index survey, which is based on a poll conducted from June 1 through June 14 with about 500 randomly selected people nationwide. Those stating jobs are “hard to get” increased to 41.5 percent from 40.9 percent, while those expecting more jobs in the months ahead declined to 14.1 percent from 15.4 percent. Meanwhile, the proportion of consumers expecting an increase in their incomes declined to 14.8 percent from 15.7 percent. Consumers' dwindling confidence follows a sharp slowdown in hiring in April and May. Meanwhile, a measure of the number of people applying for unemployment benefits over the


June 29, 2012 past month has reached a six month high, the government said last week. That increase suggests that layoffs are rising and June could be another lackluster month for hiring. The government is slated to release June data next week. Still, Americans have some reasons to be optimistic. A widely watched home price index, released Tuesday, offered some hope for the housing market. Home prices rose in nearly all major U.S. cities in April, according to The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller home price index. That's the second straight month that prices have increased in a majority of U.S. cities. Shoppers also are getting some relief at the gas pump. Gas prices have falling from their peak in early April. Gasoline prices fell 4 cents over the weekend to a national average of $3.41 per gallon (90 cents a liter), ac-

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE cording to auto club AAA, Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service. And experts say gas could fall another 11 cents by July 4, next week Despite the positive signs, Americans appear to be hoarding cash. Several companies, from restaurants to home goods sellers, have recently said customers are pulling back on spending in recent weeks unless they are lured into stores by big discounts. Bed Bath and Beyond last week forecast lower second-quarter earnings than analysts expected and said it needed to use more coupons to get people to spend. At furniture chain Ethan Allen Inc., executives said customer traffic is slowing and shoppers are taking more time to make purchasing decisions. And Darden Restaurants Inc., which operates Olive Garden and Red

Lobster restaurants, expects earnings short of Wall Street expectations, and it said customers were turned off by the $1 increase for Red Lobster's dish “Festival of Shrimp.” Given growing uncertainty about the economy, Michael P. Niemira, chief economist at The International Council of Shopping Centers, trimmed his sales forecast by 0.5 percentage point for June on Tuesday. He now expects revenue at stores opened at least a year to be up 3 percent to 3.5 percent. That follows a 4 percent rise in May. The figures exclude drug stores. The metric is considered a key indicator of a retailer's health because it excludes stores that open or close during the year. Major retailers such as Target Corp. and Macy's Inc. will be reporting final sales for June 5.

First Tesla electric sedans hit the road BY HAVEN DALEY AND JOHN S. MARSHALL ASSOCIATED PRESS

FREMONT, California (AP),Electric car maker Tesla's first mass-market sedans took to the road Friday, but it's not certain whether their debut will make or break the fledgling company. Ten of the sedans, called the Model S, rolled out the door at the company's Fremont factory during a ceremony that had the feel of a pep rally. A crowd estimated to be in the thousands, including Tesla employees, their relatives, and a host of local politicians, cheered for the lineup of speakers that included California Gov. Jerry Brown. They roared when the first cars left the building. Tesla Motors Inc. says more than 10,000 people have put down a refundable deposit for the fiveseat sedan, and the Palo Alto company expects to sell 5,000 this year. “This is another example of California on the move,” Brown told the crowd. “This is a great car. You're a bunch of great workers.”

The first cars driven out of the factory were part of what Tesla Vice President George Blankenship called the carmaker's “personal delivery program.” The first two cars were heading to buyers in Chicago, while the third was going to nearby Palo Alto. “Arguably, it may be the most beautiful sedan in the marketplace,” Blankenship said. The base model, which sells for $49,900 after a federal tax credit, can go 160 miles on one charge. Despite the high spirits during Friday's ceremony, the debut of the Model S is a critical moment for the fledgling car company. Tesla lost nearly $1 billion selling an earlier model, a high-end electric sports car called the Roadster, and the company is hoping the Model S will help it turn the corner to profitability. Tesla has sold 2,150 Roadsters since 2008. The company is the brainchild of PayPal billionaire and SpaceX founder Elon Musk. Tesla has always been considered a long shot

to survive in the car business, but Musk, who is the chairman, CEO and product architect, spoke optimistically about the future, and of electric cars. “It's about breaking a spell,” he said. “The world has been under this illusion that electric cars cannot be as good as gasoline cars. It's showing that an electric car can in fact be the best car in the world.'' Analysts and auto industry insiders have scoffed at the idea that a new car company could be created from scratch and built in a state with high operating costs like California. The price tag on the Model S is also expected to limit sales, said Rebecca Lindland, an analyst with IHS Automotive. Nissan has sold just under 30,000 all-electric Nissan Leaf hatchbacks since they went on sale at the end of 2010, but the Leaf is little more than half the price of a Model S. Marshall reported from San Francisco. AP Auto Writer Dee-Ann Durbin in Detroit contributed to this report.

E - THE ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE people stopped fishing after the spill. So the predator fish populations rebounded, and they grazed down their prey.” Not everyone shares such a rosy view. The international environmental group Greenpeace reports: “Throughout the food chain, warning signs are accumulating. Dolphins are sick and dying. Important forage fish are plagued with gill and developmental damage. Deepwater species like snapper have been stricken with lesions and their reefs are losing biodiversity. Coastal communities are struggling with changes to the fisheries they rely upon. Hard-hit oyster reefs aren’t coming back and sport fish like speckled trout have disappeared from some of their traditional haunts.” Still other observers argue that two years is not enough time to tell whether the region’s ecosystems will be severely damaged long term. “We really don’t know the effects the Deepwater Horizon spill had in the deep sea because we know little about the ecosystem processes

his fellow researchers, including leading oceanographers, ecotoxicologists, and ecologists, conclude that scientists need more time to study how to contain damage from such accidents, especially given the trend to seek new sources of oil in off-shore regions around the U.S. and beyond. “The deep sea is not a dead zone. It’s not a desert. There’s a lot of life down there,” adds Cherr. “Unfortunately it’s not until a disaster happens that we try to piece together the impacts. That’s difficult to do when you don’t have a complete—or even partial—understanding of the ecosystem.”

Newark Bluefins Swim to Victory SUBMITTED BY CANDY ALCOSIBA The Newark Bluefins dove to success on Saturday, June 2, winning their first meet of the season against the Bay Area Dolphins with a victory, 687 to 387. This year marks the sixteenth year for the Bluefin team, and they are determined to make it their best. As each year goes by, they inch their way a little closer to the coveted first place position in the East Bay Swim League (EBSL), and are determined to achieve that goal this year. With a group of phenomenal swimmers dominating the water, they appear to be unstoppable and the team as a whole has big hopes for the season. “I think we really have a shot at taking first place this year.” Kevin Alcosiba a 9-year veteran of the team said. The Bluefins

are known for smashing their own records and Saturday’s meet was no exception. Starting the season with a bang, the girl’s 15-18 free relay team of Angela Longarini, Kristin Schmit, Allison Garret, and Tory Gerome, broke their own record and the girls are confident that this is just the beginning for the unstoppable relay team. But that wasn’t the only success, another record was broken by the 11-12 girls 200 free relay a team including Emily Loaisiga, Jennifer Wang, Fiara Llagano, Caitlyn Jackson; knowing the drive of the team, this record will soon be broken as well because the determined girls are committed to breaking this record yet again before the season is out. And although they recently lost their June 9 meet to the Chabot Marlins by just three points –

dent they will be victorious at championships. With seasoned veterans Trinity Gerome, Veronica Navarro, Rachel Schultz, Kyle Alcosiba, Shelby Ortiz, and younger veterans, including Jacob, Crosby, Sebastian Gonzalez and Kalina

Montgomery, to name just a few of the team’s outstanding swimmers, first place is definitely their destiny. With a 1-1 record, the team felt confident going into their meet against Kennedy Seals on June 16, and thanks to amazing dominating races, and more broken records, the team won by over 70 points – an exciting victory for the Bluefin family. And this time, it was the 15-18 boys’ relay team that broke their team record. Adam Garret, butterfly leg for the medley team was determined to make that happen, and thanks to his determina-

Ultimately, they are working toward snatching that first place position in the EBSL championships at the end of July. How will they do it? By continuing to do what they always do, work hard, push themselves and watch their times drop regularly. Look out EBSL, Bluefins are swimming for gold

KIMBERLY MACDONALD All Fireworks are Banned in Fremont Please remember that the sale, possession, and use of all fireworks are banned within the City of Fremont. This ban includes the "safe and sane" variety of fireworks that are legal in some other cities. The ban, in effect since December 1986, has helped reduce the number of injuries, wild-land and structure fires caused by fireworks in the City of Fremont. Need to dispose of your fireworks? Deliver them to any Fremont Fire Station between 8:00 am to 8:00 pm any day of the week. Please do not leave

fireworks if personnel are not present to accept them. You may also call (925) 422-7594 for fire station locations. Fire and Police resources will be on patrol in Fremont during the peak times of concern to maintain an active vigilance against fireworks use. In California possession of illegal fireworks is considered a misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of not less than $500 nor more than $1000 or by imprisonment in a county jail for up to one year. If you are found to be in possession of a sufficient amount of illegal fireworks, you may be guilty of a felony and punished by a fine up to $5000

and/or imprisonment in a state prison or county jail. Parents may be held liable for any damages or injuries caused by their childrens use of illegal fireworks. Please report any illegal fireworks to the Fremont Police Department at 510-7906800 and select option 3. Please be extremely careful during the Fourth of July holiday season and throughout the summer months with all outdoor activities. The abundance of dry grass and brush in the area has created an extremely dangerous fire condition. Looking for something to do on 4th of July? Attend the Fremont 4th of July Parade! Taking place for the second year in the City's Downtown location, the

SUBMITTED BY FREMONT PD This Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1, the Fremont Police K9 Unit will be participating in the fourth Annual "Cover Your K9" fund-raiser at Pet Food Express - 39010 Paseo Padre Parkway (Raley's Shopping Center). How can you participate? Visit any one of the 44 Northern California Pet Food Express stores this weekend, June 30th or July 1st, during regular store hours and purchase a dog wash token.

Even better, you can buy all the tokens you need for the whole year this weekend and 100% of the proceeds will go to support K9s. Would you like to meet our K9s? Two Fremont Police K9 Teams will be at the Fremont Pet Food Express store from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Other Bay Area K9 teams will be at their local Pet Food Express stores throughout the weekend. Cover Your K9 is a non-profit organization and its board of directors is made up of current and former California K9 handlers and volunteers who help provide customized bullet-proof vests and vehicle "heat alarms" for police patrol cars. Additionally, the group provides free emergency medical training, free K9 first aid kits and other specialized equipment to keep our hardworking police dogs protected while they are at work protecting us. The Fremont Police K9 Unit recently received two free customized K9 bulletproof vests (valued at over $5000) from the Cover Your K9 organization.

Dumbarton Bridge service to increase SUBMITTED BY CLARENCE JOHNSON Bus travel between the East Bay and the Peninsula will become easier and more frequent on July 2, 2012, when the Dumbarton Bridge Express service is expanded. Lines DB and DB1 will undergo a major overhaul, increasing bus service from Union City to Palo Alto by approximately 80 percent. Under the new plan, approved by the AC Transit Board of Directors, Line DB1 will cross the bridge three times more often than currently. On Line DB, more trips will be added during the day and evening commutes. The expanded service will mean a variety of changes and improvements, including: 1) Extending the Line DB from the Palo Alto Caltrain station to the Stanford campus (the Oval). This is intended to help relieve crowded conditions on AC Transit’s Line U. 2) Discontinuing a segment of Line DB south of the Caltrain station, along El Camino Real and Page Mill Road. 3) Expanding Line DB1 to operate along the entire Page Mill Road/Deer Creek loop, with added trips. 4) Outfitting all DB Express buses with new WiFi technology for faster connections during the trans-Bay commute. 5) Minimizing passengers’ wait-times at bus stops by making real-time departures information available. The Dumbarton Express service is overseen by the Dumbarton Bridge Regional Operations Consortium (DBROC) – comprised of AC Transit, BART, SamTrans, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority and Union City Transit. The service is operated and maintained under contract with MV Transportation. AC Transit administers the Dumbarton Express service on behalf of the Consortium. Additional scheduling information and a new Dumbarton Express route map is online at www.ACTransit.org and by calling 511 and saying “AC Transit.”

Two for one kitty fun! SUBMITTED BY FREMONT PD In an effort to increase adoptions this summer, we are looking for permanent and loving homes for several cats and kittens currently at our shelter or in foster care. Beginning July 1 through July 15, we will offer a “2 for 1” discount on all second cats or kittens adopted by the same family.

SUBMITTED BY JONATHAN LANCE Psssssssst…pass it on….on Sunday, July 22, there’s going to be a jail break—and the Alameda County Deputy Sheriff’s Association invites everyone join in. The 10th annual Jail Break Run, benefiting Special Olympics Northern California, offers an “escape plan” for everyone: a 5K run (or walk), 10K run, Kids’ 1/2-mile run, and Kids’ 1-mile run. For the tenth straight year, this fun and exciting event will be hosted by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, at their Training Center (which is located right next to the Santa Rita Jail), 6289 Broder Blvd., Dublin, Calif. The Jail Break Run is part of the Sheriff’s year-round Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraising campaign. The 5K course is a flat and fast loop. The 10K run is primarily flat and fast, with one hill — the very same hill you must master to join the Alameda County S.W.A.T. team; members of the S.W.A.T. team will be on hand to run the 10K course with the participants. Both USA Track & Field certified courses will run along the OUTSIDE walls of the jail (all Santa Rita inmates will be tucked away, out-of-view, indoors). For those who are little bit more casual with their “get away,” participants are welcome to walk the 5K. Both kids’ run courses (children under 8-years old)

Families living in Fremont would be required to pay the one-year license fee of $12 and would have the option to pay the FIV/FELV fee for the second cat or kitten. You can visit the Tri-City Animal Shelter located behind the Fremont Police Department building and adjacent to the City's Dog Park at 1950 Stevenson Boule-

vard, Fremont during open hours: Tuesday – Friday: Noon - 5 p.m. Saturday: 11a.m. - 4 p.m. To view available pets, go to www.petharbor.com. For more information on the Tri-City Animal Shelter visit: http://www.fremont.gov/index.aspx?nid=89

will be held at the Sheriff Training Center’s running track. Each “escapee” will receive the very popular Jail Break Run T-shirt, refreshments, and entry into the Jail Break raffle, which features a lot of great loot. Every child participating in either the 1/2-mile or 1-mile runs will earn a special award medal. Trophies will be awarded to the first overall male and female participant in each event, as well as the top Masters (45-years and older) male and female in each race. 5K Medals will also be given three-deep to the finishers in each male and female age category, in 10-year increments, beginning 9-years and under. 10K Medals will be given three-deep to the finishers in each male and female age category, 10-year increments, beginning 18-years and under. In addition, all participants will certainly enjoy the opportunity to run, or walk, with a number of local Special Olympic athletes who will be competing as well.

Last year’s winning times: Men’s 5K Run: 0:16:47 Women’s 5K Run 0:21:47 Men’s 10K Run: 0:35:02 Women’s 10K Run 0:39:46 Entry fees for either the 10K Run or 5K Walk/Run are $30.00 pre-registered, $35.00 after July race-day registration. The Kids’ ?-Mile and Mile event fees are both $10.00. Check-in and race-day registration will open at 6:30 a.m., with both 10K and 5K events starting at 8:00 a.m. The Kid’s 1/2-Mile and Mile, which takes place on the Sheriff’s training center track, will begin around 10:00 a.m. Post-race awards, raffle, and prize give-away ceremony is scheduled to start around 10 a.m. For more Jail Break Run information and/or an application, contact On Your Mark Events at (209) 795-7832 or visit www.onyourmarkevents.com.

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

BY DIANE DANIEL

I

t’s common to hear of people who love San Francisco’s “Beach Blanket Babylon” (BBB) so much they attend the show again and again. But every week? April Rodriguez, Cal State East Bay alumna and staff member, is at the show one day a week, typically for two back-to-back weekend shows, so she can operate the soundboard for the wildly popular musical. It takes place at Club Fugazi in San Francisco's North Beach district. BBB performs Wednesday through Sunday 52 weeks a year. Many of the actors and musicians have been with the show 15 to 20 years, and while the show is known for frequent script changes that keep it on top of current events, the trick to being a great sound engineer is running the “sound” identical from one show to the next. Rodriguez had never seen BBB, much less known of its craziness, when she responded three years ago to head sound engineer Thomas Schueneman’s call for board operators. She was working part-time in the CSUEB Theatre and Dance Department as an office assistant and occasional sound engineer and sound designer in the theater. She also has supplemented her income at Berkeley Sound Artists. Three weeks after seeing her first BBB performance, she soloed as BBB’s first female sound engineer.

“I love working the show," Rodriguez said. "I can hear the audience, sense the energy. It fulfills a need for instant gratification; it keeps me on my toes.” Some nights there’s backstage buzz that someone famous, or perhaps a high-powered critic, will be in the audience. There’s the challenge of keeping on top of the 10 to 30 things that happen simultaneously while running the show, and occasional quick fixes and troubleshooting, such as swapping microphones and headphones midshow. Rodriguez will never forget the time she mistakenly shut down the system at the end of an evening, rather than logging out. The next day, she found herself locked out of the system. Only an administrator’s password could get her in, and that administrator was on vacation, and out of cell coverage. With five minutes to spare, a work-around succeeded, and the soundboard was able to synch with the computer system. “I could have run the show manually," Rodriguez said. "I know the show inside and out. Plus this is how I worked at Cal State East Bay, (where) we had an analog system; there was no computer program to assist me as I ran full productions.” But she was happy it didn’t come to that. Growing up in Selma, just south of Fresno, Rodriguez had no inkling she would one day be controlling the sound for the iconic San Francisco musical. She and her family loved

music, but when she headed to college at Cal State Bakersfield, Rodriguez had a geology career in mind. Two years later she transferred to Cal State East Bay, where she hoped courses in theater production, sound, and lighting would land her a gig touring with a band. A few years later, while attending a conservatory in Arizona and working as a stage hand for Rhino Staging and Rigging, she met lead vocalist Chester Bennington of her favorite band, Linkin Park. Rodriguez pitched her case to him. While nothing came of it, Rodriguez found discovered that the touring life was not her calling and she returned to the Bay Area. Two years ago Rodriguez was among the sound effects editors and designers of the Oscar-nominated documentary, “The Most Dangerous Man In America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.” Her resume also includes mix assistant for the documentary, “IMUA,” at Skywalker Ranch, and assistant sound designer for the short movie, “The Composer is Dead,” that played at the Berkeley Rep. Rodriguez’ next dream? “What I have going on right now is pretty solid and the changes ahead will only be made for the betterment of my career," she said. "But what I would really love to see someday is a female sound engineer appear on the cover of a major audio magazine.”

New Haven District announces adjustment to school start times SUBMITTED BY RICK LA PLANTE In an effort to help alleviate increased traffic on city streets since state budget cuts forced the gradual elimination of bus transportation for students, the New Haven Unified School District will make a slight adjustment to school start times for the 2012-13 school year. Elementary students still will begin school at 8 a.m.; however, James Logan High students will start five minutes later, at 8:20 a.m. (instead of 8:15), and middle school students will start 10 minutes later, at 8:40 a.m. (instead of 8:30). The changes will give parents who have children at more than one school 20 minutes to get from site to site, instead of 15. Elementary students still will be dismissed at 2:05 p.m., middle school students at 2:55 p.m. and Logan students at 3:25 p.m.

“We considered several scenarios and asked parents and our employees for their feedback, and the adjustments we’ve made are the ones that folks seem to agree will cause the least disruption and still enable us to accomplish our goal, giving parents and extra five minutes to get from school to school,” Superintendent Kari McVeigh said. Nearly 220 parents responded to a District request to provide online comments and suggestions on school start times, as well as feedback on four possible scenarios. Of the nearly 200 parents who expressed a preference for one of the scenarios, a clear plurality of 44.4 percent, selected the model calling for elementary schools to start first, followed by Logan, then the middle schools. The second-most popular option (Logan/middle schools/elementary schools) was selected by 26.3 percent of the respondents. The

third-most popular scenario (middle schools/Logan/elementary schools) was selected by 22.7 percent, and the fourthmost popular option (Logan/elementary schools/middle schools) was selected by 6.6 percent. “Obviously, starting times that work well for some parents don’t work as well for others,” Superintendent McVeigh said. “Our goal was to adopt a plan that seems to work best for most.”

Social Security

New Compassionate Allowances Conditions mean faster decisions BY MARIAELENA LEMUS SOCIAL SECURITY PUBLIC AFFAIRS SPECIALIST IN SAN JOSE

I

n April, Social Security announced 52 new Compassionate Allowances conditions to the growing list of severe medical conditions that qualify for expedited medical decisions. The new conditions include many neurological disorders, cancers, and rare diseases. The Compassionate Allowances initiative is a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify as “disabled” based on minimal medical information. Compassionate Allowances allow Social Security to quickly identify the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that we can obtain quickly. The announcement of 52 new conditions, effective in August, will increase the total number of Compassionate Allowances conditions to 165. That list continues to grow as Social Security, the National Institutes of Health,

and a number of patient organizations help identify new conditions that clearly warrant quick approvals. “Social Security will continue to work with the medical community and patient organizations to add more conditions,” Commissioner Astrue said. “With our Compassionate Allowances program, we quickly approved disability benefits for nearly 61,000 people with severe disabilities in the past fiscal year, and nearly 173,000 applications since the program began.” Social Security develops the list of Compassionate Allowances conditions from information received at public outreach hearings, comments received from the disability community, counsel of medical and scientific experts, and research with the National Institutes of Health. Also, we consider which conditions are most likely to meet our definition of disability. For more information on the Compassionate Allowances initiative, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/compassionateallowances.
