SUBMITTED BY JOEY CAMINS Once again, the celebration of an iconic Filipino dish, Adobo, is returning for its annual visit to the Bay Area. The word, “Adobo” is the Tagalog translation of a delicious stew of marinated pork or chicken cooked with garlic, pepper, laurel leaves, and a blend of soy sauce and vinegar. Accompanied by rice, Adobo is a well-known dish
in the Filipino community and gave birth to the idea of creating an Adobo Festival. If tamales, asparagus and garlic can be the focus of festivals, why not feature Adobo at its own festival? Organizer Joey Camins created a unique, annual gathering for those who know and love Adobo and others who may be unfamiliar with the flavorful dish as well. Instead of continued on page 7

Hospital Provides Award-Winning Emergency Care for Heart Attack and Stroke
eart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The same is true for Alameda County. Receiving high-quality, effective care for the body's hardest working muscle can mean the difference between life and death.
diac receiving centers, and only three are designated as stroke receiving centers. “Patients suffering heart attacks or strokes who are brought to Washington Hospital as a result of our designations as a receiving center get the best care available,” says Dr. Ash Jain, medical director of the Washington Led by Medical Director, Ash Jain, M.D., (left) Washington Hospital’s Stroke Program never stops striving to reach a higher level. In 2012, Washington Hospital received a Five Star Excellence Award from HealthGrades that ranked us among the top 5 percent in the nation for treatment of stroke.
For several years, Washington Hospital has been designated as both a “cardiac receiving center” and a “stroke receiving center” for Alameda County. Hospitals with these designations must have demonstrated that they have the facilities, technology and physicians needed to provide immediate diagnostic tests and the interventions necessary to save lives. There are only four hospitals in the county designated as car-
Cardiovascular Institute and the Stroke Program at Washington Hospital. Numerous studies have consistently found that early coronary angiography and angioplasty are associated with improved long-term outcomes after cardiac arrest. “To become a cardiac receiving center, you must have an interventional program that meets stringent standards of getting a heart attack patient’s arteries opened using
angioplasty within 90 minutes of arrival in the emergency room,” Dr. Jain explains. “It also is recommended that you have a cardiac surgery program available in case open-heart surgery is needed. Further, the cardiologists must be trained and qualified to perform angioplasty and other non-invasive, life-saving procedures to diagnose and treat heart attacks.” The standards for stroke receiving centers are equally stringent, he notes. “The American Stroke Association has established 10 basic core standards of care,” Dr. Jain says. “By meeting and exceeding those basic measures, we provide patients with excellent care, but we don’t stop with just the basic requirements. Our dedicated Stroke Program goes above and beyond what most hospitals have. We have specialized stroke care units that are staffed 24/7 by specially trained stroke nurses. “We also provide special training for every employee involved in stroke patients’ care, from ER staff to radiology to lab technologists,” he adds. “In addition, we are very thorough in identifying and treating other conditions that are risk factors for subsequent strokes – including diabetes and hypertension – even though that is not part of the basic requirements.”
National Quality Awards The excellent quality of Washington Hospital’s cardiac and stroke care has been recognized time and again over the years. Most recently, for the second year in a row, the hospital’s Stroke Program received a HealthGrades 5-Star Award for Stroke Care. The hospital also earned the 2012 HealthGrades Stroke Care Excellence Award and ranked among the top 5 percent in the nation for treatment of stroke. HealthGrades is an independent healthcare rating organization that reviews more than 5,000 hospitals around the country based exclusively on patient outcomes, with awards and achievements corresponding to superior patient outcomes. “The recent awards from HealthGrades are additional recognition of the excellent quality of care provided at Washington Hospital,” Dr. Jain notes. “For heart attacks and strokes, rapid treatment using proven national evidence-based standards of care can prevent or minimize permanent damage. It also could save your life. At Washington Hospital, that’s exactly the kind of timely, life-saving treatment for heart attacks and strokes you can expect.”
Recognize the Signs of Heart Attack and Stroke Treating heart attack and stroke as quickly as possible is critical for saving lives and improving the long-term outcomes for patients. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, call 9-1-1 immediately. Heart Attack Symptoms The classic warning signs of a heart attack include: • Pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes or that goes away and comes back. • Pressure or discomfort in the chest. • Acute shortness of breath that occurs with or without chest discomfort. • Pain or discomfort in one or both
arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach. • Profuse sweating. • Nausea and vomiting. • Dizziness or unexplained weakness. Women who are suffering a heart attack may not complain of as much chest pain as men do. Women more often experience extreme shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting and back or jaw pain. Stroke Symptoms Someone suffering a stroke might experience symptoms such as: • Sudden numbness or weakness, almost always on one side of the body. • Sudden confusion or difficulty in speaking or understanding language.
• Sudden trouble with seeing, such as double vision, blind spots, or a “hole” in the field of vision. • Sudden trouble with walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. • Severe, sudden headache with no known cause. People who experience stroke symptoms that go away fairly quickly may have suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA). With TIAs, the symptoms do resolve themselves, but they can be the precursor to a major stroke. Having a TIA means you are at a much higher risk of suffering a major stroke, and you need to be evaluated right away.
Think F.A.S.T. To help remember the signs of stroke, think F.A.S.T. F. Face: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop? A. Arms: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? S. Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange? T. Time: If you observe any of these signs, call 9-1-1 immediately. If you think you or someone near you might be having a stroke: Don't drive, don't try to diagnose yourself, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Seminar Focuses on Cancer Risk Based on Family History of the Disease
If you have a history of cancer in your family - or you have a close relative that has been diagnosed - chances are you have a lot of questions. How does this impact your risk of developing cancer?

Diabetes is a chronic disease that must be properly managed to avoid serious complications like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and blindness. But if you have diabetes, you know how difficult that can be. “I think it’s very important to first understand what diabetes is and how it affects the body,” said Khalid Baig, a family physician and pathologist who is a member of the Washington Hospital medical staff. “People with diabetes should learn as much as they can about the disease and how to keep it under control.” He will offer tips for managing the chronic disease at an upcoming seminar titled “Diabetes Control: Back to Basic Keys for Success” on Thursday, September 6, from 7 to 8 p.m. It will be held at the Conrad E.

Despite the fact that women outnumber men in college, only 17.8% of engineering degrees in 2009 went to women, according to the American Society of Engineering Education. Women’s aspirations in science, technology, engineering and mathematics
is to… [demystify] engineering, so that these young female students can see themselves one day as engineers, computer programmers, and scientists,” a Play-Well representative said The program held two classes every day: an engineering class in the morning and a robotics class in the afternoon. The morning class, titled “Junkyard Challenge,” challenged the girls to work in teams with a looselystructured goal of creative problem solving. In one class, the girls learned
(STEM) are formed at an early age by environment, particularly a negative stereotype that boys are better suited for math and science. Play-Well TEKnologies, a national organization that uses LEGOs to promote engineering, architecture and science to children, introduces STEM fields to young girls. PlayWell initiated a week-long LEGO robotics and engineering camp at the Irvington Community Center August 13-17 geared specifically for girls between second and fifth grade. “The goal of programs such as Play-Well’s
about using gears and transmissions to make a car go faster; in another class, they had to figure out how to build a bridge that could support a specified weight. The afternoon class, titled “LEGO Robotics for Girls,” taught problem solving with a robotics program. The girls learned how programming works and to think in a logical manner. Instructor Stephanie Ueland says she noticed a big difference in a girlsonly program. “Sometimes boys can be very competitive, so you have conflicts: ‘this is my idea’ versus ‘this is my idea,’”

she said. “The girls tend to work far better collaboratively… they are able to accomplish the task that much sooner.” The all-girls program uses the same core curriculum and concepts but with a slightly different emphasis and appeal. “The boys really like battling, and sometimes the girls have fun with that but sometimes they don’t,” Ueland said. “[Many] girls like to build houses, so we built awesome, really intricate castles and then we attacked them with catapults.” Both Ueland and fellow instructor Briana Headley interest in science was sparked as young students at an all-girls summer camp. “It was just all about letting us explore our excitement for science and engineering. It was very empowering,” Headley said. “I think being exposed to female scientists and female engineers as role models can be hugely inspiring,” Ueland said. “We hope to be good role models. We’re actively thinking about how to be inspiring and supportive of the girls as they’re learning.” Headley stresses the importance of female role models to young girls. When she asked a nine-year-old female student what she thought of girls in science and engineering, the girl said ‘girls aren’t allowed in science.’ “That was very upsetting,” Headley said. She noticed some girls had a similar attitude toward LEGOs, which are mostly marketed to boys. “[The girls] see that it’s targeted not to them but to somebody else… they don’t miss it,” Headley said. Ueland knows there is an obstacle for girls pursuing a STEM education, but her goal is to make it more accessible and to encourage the girls to go for it. She will be teaching another all-girls program this fall at the PlayWell Pleasanton Activity Center. “I’m inspired to be around the children,” Ueland said. “I think once they give [engineering] a shot, they’ll find that it’s not hard. It’s fun and rewarding.” For more information on future Play-Well classes, visit www.playwell.org.

Steampunk “Cinderella” a visual treat
BY JULIE GRABOWSKI
he tale of a girl named Cinderella is one well and widely known by almost everyone who has spent time on the planet. A kind girl, treated as a house slave by her stepmother and stepsisters, gets a magical trip to the ball via her Fairy Godmother, finds love with the prince, and after a little scuffle over a shoe, presto – lives happily ever after. But Curtain Call Performing Arts sparks curiosity and renewed interest in the familiar story with just one word: Steampunk. Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” was a made for TV musical that aired in 1957 and underwent remakes in 1965 and 1997. But Curtain Call’s unique and lively interpretation is one that you’ve never seen before, and the bold choice is undoubtedly the heart and success of this production. Steampunk is a genre that evolved from the industrial days of steam power, weaving machinery elements with science fiction, fantasy, and a Victorian sensibility with a punk twist. “Cinderella is a classic story that has been told in different countries for centuries. Steampunk, to me, is without a specific time period. It has the feel of some tradition in the look of it, but adds fantasy... with an edge,” says Director and Choreographer Misty Megia. “The more I researched it, the more I fell in love with the idea of the marriage of tradition with nods to today and the future. Steampunk also has this theme of watches and clock gears, which I find fit Cinderella perfectly. Time is ticking away and you have to reach for what you want in time to get it. Everything about it just fit for what I wanted to say.” The set is awash with gold, copper, and silver hues and comprised of a staircase curving up each side of a mottled wall that serves as the village square, manor house, and royal palace. Atop this wall presides a large, impressive clock to which all the lives below run. Costume Designer Andrea Gorham delivers an entrancing collection of eclectic and vintage looking getups in gray, black, brown, and navy tones with dashes of pur-
ple, red, and orange. The costumes are diverse in look but harmonious in fabulous funk, constructed of goggles, top hats, vests, corsets, watch chains, feathers, patterned tights, lace-up boots, cropped jackets, and floor length coats. Interestingly enough, Cinderella doesn’t get any Steampunk treatment herself, wearing the traditional old dress and apron cleaning outfit, a pretty ball dress, and wedding gown. One wonders what that signifies. But the look of the show isn’t the only notable difference; this version of the tale is a little more proactive. Only when Cinderella takes responsibility for her own destiny and decides to go after what she wants, does the Fairy Godmother kick in with the magic, reminding us that most of the time, miracles don’t just swirl in and change our lives, they happen when we take that first step forward. Catherine Williamson is absolute princess perfection as Cinderella. Her carriage, tone of voice, and delivery of lines is right on character, and her singing is gor-
geous. She is especially touching when she converses with her wind-up mouse friend, Charles, and imagines all that she can be in the song “In My Own Little Corner.” Chafing at the life decided for him, Matt Ono is a sweet and boyish Prince Christopher, endearing and enthusiastic in pursuit of himself and his love. Kate Offer and Alice Beittel play their parts to the comedic hilt as the hopeless and unappealing stepsisters Grace and Joy. While Beittel goes a bit overboard at times, the two are well matched and provide laughs throughout, including the great number, “Stepsisters’ Lament.” Ali Lane deals it cool and smooth as the harsh and regal Stepmother, but also gets to indulge in her own well-played comedic moments. And forget the soft and grandmotherly Fairy Godmother; who couldn’t dig a no nonsense woman in heels, purple corset, leather pants, fingerless gloves, and top hat? She states, “I never really wanted to fit in, I prefer to stand out,” and Kristina Stasi certainly does that. Super cool and
confident, Stasi brings the magic in a whole new way. With the Steampunk twist, live orchestra, and strong performances, “Cinderella” is a unique, fantasy music box experience worth seeing. And where else can you see a real pumpkin carriage?

Blue painter's tape used by burglars SUBMITTED BY NEWARK PD Blue painter's tape affixed to doors may be using as a means of surveillance. A unique surveillance technique is being used by burglars in San Francisco. Police there are warning residents of one neighborhood to be on the lookout for blue painter's tape that thieves are using as a means of surveillance. It is believed burglars place the tape on doorways and that a broken tape will indicate to a potential thief that someone is home. But tape that remains untouched for days could be a sign that the resident is away on vacation. There are no known incidents of this type occurring in Newark, but be vigilant as this crime trend may spread throughout the Bay Area.

Fremont. The seminar is part of Washington Hospital’s free monthly Diabetes Matters education series. Diabetes occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin or is not able to use it properly. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy. When this process doesn’t work properly, glucose (sugar) levels in the blood can get too high. “With elevated blood sugar levels, the lining of the blood vessels gets damaged over time,” Baig said. “Diabetes affects blood vessels throughout the body, from the brain all the way down to the feet. Every blood vessel is involved. If this damage occurs in the brain, you are more susceptible to stroke. If it occurs in the heart, it significantly raises your risk of having a heart attack. When it happens in the kidneys, it causes kidney disease. In fact, the majority of people who need dialysis treatments because their kidneys no longer work properly have diabetes.” Diet and Exercise According to Baig, understanding the complications motivates people to make the necessary lifestyle changes to keep diabetes under control, which include eating right and exercising. “Diet is the most important aspect of diabetes,” he said. “Everything you eat affects your blood sugar.” Baig will talk about the role of carbohydrates and explain the difference between simple and complex carbs. Simple carbohydrates, which include both added and naturally occurring sugars, cause blood sugar levels to increase rapidly while complex carbs, found in starchy vegetables and grains, cause a sustained increase in blood sugar levels, he said. “You need to understand how carbohydrates affect the body to develop a meal plan,” Baig added. “You can’t and shouldn’t avoid carbs, but you need to understand how they impact blood sugar. It’s important to develop a meal plan that provides a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as lean protein. You don’t have to give up the foods you enjoy in order to control your diabetes, but you do need to plan accordingly.”
Exercise is also important in controlling diabetes and managing some of the other risk factors that can lead to complications like high blood pressure. In addition to helping with weight loss, physical activity helps the body metabolize glucose more efficiently, Baig explained. “Excessive weight gain reduces the functioning of receptors that facilitate the body’s use of glucose,” he added. “You really need to keep your Body Mass Index (BMI) below 25. That’s the magic number.” Monitor and Treat Another critical component of controlling diabetes is continued monitoring. People with diabetes need to check their blood glucose levels regularly. “Self-testing is very easy now,” Baig said. “Technology has brought us more efficient testing equipment that requires very little blood to get an accurate reading. The machines are small and easy to carry.” While a simple blood test measures blood glucose at any given moment, the A1C test measures the average blood glucose level over a two to three-month period. It is an important tool for avoiding serious complications because it indicates how well blood glucose levels are being controlled over time, he added. Taking medications properly is the final component of controlling diabetes that Baig will address. He will provide an overview of some of the medications that are available today, including those that stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin, medications that reduce the production of glucose by the liver, and newer drugs that help the body’s cells use insulin more efficiently. “The bottom line is you have to get your diabetes under control before it damages your body and causes serious complications,” Baig said. “It can be difficult, but it certainly is doable. There is a lot of information and support available. Work with your doctor, talk to a dietitian, and find out everything you can about the disease.” To learn about other diabetes programs at Washington Hospital, visit www.whhs.com/diabetes.

Washington Township History Farms and Farmers
ashington Township was formed in 1853, but Eastern American pioneers were already farming large tracts of the area. They had discovered that “the climate was the choicest in the whole state” and the soil was deep, rich and very fertile. The famous ship Brooklyn brought passengers who were described as “the earliest permanent American settlers in California.” Some of them became farmers in
about wiped out their empire, but they persevered. An agricultural, study committee from San Francisco visited Beard’s orchard and the farms of John and Robert Blacow in 1860. The Blacow brothers were credited with being “pioneers in the good work of stock improvement in Alameda County.” Farmers who owned over 100 acres in 1876 included Henry Curtner, R. A. McClure, George Patterson, John Stevenson, Joseph John Horner

Washington Township. John Horner, one of the passengers, became the most prominent farmer in the State after overcoming many obstacles. His first crop at Mission San Jose was destroyed by grasshoppers, and wild cattle ruined his planting of potatoes. However, he persisted and earned a profit of $600 in 1847. He leased land, built redwood fences to protect his crops and raised vegetables which he sold to miners and men on their way to the gold mines. John’s brother, William, joined him to help manage the expanding farming operations. By 1851, the Horner brothers reported gross incomes of some $270,000 from the sale of vegetables and fruit. John was chosen “First Farmer of California” and awarded a silver chalice. Elias Lyman Beard came to Mission San Jose in 1849 and purchased a cloudy title to some 28 acres including the orchards and gardens around the Mission. He cultivated the gardens, cared for the fruit trees, grafted and planted more trees and created a productive farm that attracted people from near and far. They came to buy trees or get cuttings for grafting. Charles Shinn wrote, “The old E. L. Beard garden home has had a name and fame second to no farm in California.” Beard joined John Horner to purchase the ex-mission land grant of some 30,000 acres. They put much of this land into wheat and potatoes and sold or leased sections to other farmers. The depression that started in 1854 just
Palmer, Earl Marshall, Simeon Stivers and Josiah Stanford. The authors of the 1878 Atlas of Alameda County noted that nearly all the farmers raised some fruit. Farmers mentioned include James Shinn, William Tyson, Zachariah Cheney, William Barry, George Emerson, W.W. Brier, John Proctor, Daniel Sanborn and Emory Munyon. “Besides cultivating fruit, Mr. Munyon makes excellent cider as he used to do when he lived in Connecticut.” By 1880 over 30% of the people in the township were of Portuguese descent, many of them farmers. They loved the soil and were great farmers. Large acreages were farmed by the Lewis Brothers. Doris Van Scoy described their life in her book, The Story of Antonio and Maria. It was predicted in 1889 that Alameda County would become the nursery center of California. Wheat culture was expected to lessen and orchards, vineyards and gardens to increase and the area would “become one of the richest and most famous fruit districts in the State.” Charles Shinn highlighted the family orchards of Joseph Nichols, B. D. Clough, John Proctor, William Sim, the Shinn family and others as being the “historical forerunner of the commercial orchards.” William Barry was waging a fight against the attack of smut on citrus fruits in the 1890’s. He presented an exhibit before the Board of Supervisors in 1898 to demonstrate the quality of Wash-
ington Township Citrus and the success of his fight. The exhibit included fruit from the orchards of C. C. McIver, C. S. Bond, John Decoto, H. A. Mayhew, James Shinn, Thomas Chadbourne and H. G. Ellsworth. The 1910 Special Edition of the Township Register mentions the 40 acre orchard of Henry Lachman but stresses the vineyards of Los Cerritos, of J. H. Whitfield, Los Amigos of Grau and Weiner and Linda Vista of Henry Stephens. It also features the Jackson-Grainger Dairy and the William Hirsch poultry farm. Japanese Americans, including the Fudenna Family, were very resourceful and successful farmers. The Williams brothers were advertised as large growers and shippers in 1947. Burdette was growing celery, tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower on 12 farms and packing and shipping from his packinghouse in Irvington. Lee was shipping carloads of vegetables from his Centerville warehouse. His field superintendent, Tony Alameda, was recognized as a township civic leader. Lloyd Bailey operated a packing shed capable of shipping 15 carloads a day from Centerville. Other farms advertised in 1947 included the Weibel Champagne Vineyards and Kimber Poultry Breeding Farm. After World War II, housing developments began crowding out the farmers until only Mel Alameda and Joe Perry were left at the remaining farmland of the George Patterson Ranch and Ardenwood. They were described as “living ties to Fremont history.”

Lauren's Ride: Golden Gate Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge BY BELINDA MALONEY
auren Byrne, a 22 year old woman from Newark, CA, became a quadriplegic when she was just 15. A vibrant, talented, outgoing teenager, full of life, Lauren's world as she knew it, tumbled down around her. In a swimming pool accident, she hit her head and became paralyzed; she had broken her neck. In a wheelchair with all her dreams and aspirations coming to a halt, one might think Lauren would feel like the world had ended, but not Lauren! To her, it was just a speed bump on the road of life. Following months of hospitalization and years of physical therapy, she remains a strong, beautiful woman with a great attitude and sense of humor. Lauren did not let an accident define her; she goes to a local college, travels with family and friends, counsels other accident victims… and even plays wheelchair rugby! “We have hope she’ll someday walk again. It’s hard. You never know. You go to the hospital, and no one has any answers for you. But she’s really positive. She really motivates me. She’s never wanted people to feel bad for her. As time goes on, I think she’ll inspire people more than anything,” says her older brother John. John is a firefighting engineer in Nipomo, CA. They say that brothers and sisters share a unique blend of love, camaraderie and friendship; never more true than in this instance. John has watched Lauren struggle through recuperation and is in awe of his sister’s strength and perseverance. During a camping trip with her, he learned just how frustrated she was with her inability to

drive. She wasn’t getting the classes she needed, was juggling work and school, and every appointment required a family discussion about transportation options. Feeling that Lauren's first true step toward independence would be to get herself from one place to another without depending on others, John decided to look into options. After some research and finding no available funding programs and realizing how expensive specialized vehicles are, he decided to combine his talents and love of adventure to start a fundraising campaign. John has participated in triathlons for the past few years and recently completed a 300 mile bicycle ride in three days from Nipomo to the Golden Gate Bridge, Why?, one might ask..."Just because, I'm crazy," he says. If you think 300 miles is crazy, his next endeavor is mind boggling! John will leave September 9 to ride his bicycle across the country, from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco to the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, to raise funds for Lauren. “I posted it on Facebook to see what people thought. Within a day, there was a website with video, donation capability, maps, and I’m in total disbelief. I’m thinking, ‘Wait! This is just an idea,’” John said. “When John says he’s going to do something, he’ll do it,” Lauren said. What started off being just an idea is now a reality. John is absolutely thrilled with the outpouring of love and support. Tony Hernandez, training captain for Cal Fire San Diego, will drive a follow car to serve as John’s support crew. Cal Fire Capt. Steve Meikle, with help from the Cal Fire firefighters union, is contacting fire departments along John’s intended route to make lodging plans. Amy Jones, executive assistant with Cal Fire in Los Osos, is coordinating planning, public information and press work. Andy Meuerle of New Jersey and the man behind John’s bike will coordinate the final stages of the ride, and, of course, family and friends have been helping with just about everything, but especially getting the word out. Fluid Sports Nutrition, a San Luis Obispo-based recovery drink manufacturer, will provide supplements for the ride, and San Luis Obispo County Firefighters Benevolent Association is sponsoring the ride. John’s and Lauren’s mother, Judy Byrne, will coordinate a Nor Cal Kick off pasta dinner and fundraiser for the ride on Saturday, September 8 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Fremont Veteran's Hall located at 37154 2nd Street in Niles. All proceeds will go to "Lauren's Ride." "My husband and I are so very proud of what a wonderful, loving, and caring man John has become," says Mrs. Byrne. We'll be tracking John's journey each day, and of course I will be biting my nails for six weeks till he's safe in Brooklyn... but that's what mothers do!" “I figure if, through the course of this ride, I meet 3,000 people who are willing to donate $10 each, we’d hit our goal,” John said.

Calif. protests court order for inmate reduction AP WIRE SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP), Gov. Jerry Brown's administration is protesting a federal court order to provide a timetable for releasing prison inmates to ease overcrowding at state prisons. The state filed a response to the order late Friday, calling the court's demand for a timetable ``unwarranted'' and requesting a suspension of previously ordered prison crowding limits, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. A three-judge panel has given California until June 2013 to decrease its prison population to 137.5 percent of capacity or 112,000 inmates, but the state has said it does not expect to meet that target date and expects to lower the population to only 145 percent of capacity. That admission prompted the judges two weeks ago to issue the order for a schedule of inmate releases. The legal wrangling is the latest step in a long running lawsuit over medical and mental health care at the state's prisons. Judges in two federal courts have ruled that the poor prison health care system leads to an “unconscionable degree of suffering and death” and placed the system in the control of a court-appointed receiver. In its legal filing Friday, the government contends that the opening of a large prison medical facility in Stockton will alleviate many of the issues, eliminate the need for a receiver, and as such, said a timetable for early releases was legally inappropriate. The state also said that if it has to comply with the lower inmate population threshold, it would not be able to save money by returning 9,000 inmates housed at out-of-state for-profit prisons because it would have to pay county jails for housing more state inmates. Inmate advocates say the government is simply being intransigent. “Every step in the process, they have dug in their heels,” said Rebekah Evenson, a lawyer for the Prison Law Office, which filed the class action lawsuit 10 years ago. The state has reduced its overcrowding to 150 percent of capacity by having 24,000 low-level offenders serve time in county jails. Information from: Los Angeles Times, http://www.latimes.com
Samsung ordered to pay Apple $1.05B in patent case BY PAUL ELIAS ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP), After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a jury decided Friday that Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad. The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion. An appeal is expected. Apple Inc. filed its patent infringement lawsuit in April 2011 and engaged legions of the country's highest-paid patent lawyers to demand $2.5 billion from its top smartphone competitor. Samsung Electronics Co. fired back with its own lawsuit seeking $399 million. The verdict, however, belonged to Apple, as the jury rejected all Samsung's claims against Apple. Jurors also decided against some of Apple's claims involving the two dozen Samsung devices at issue, declining to award the full $2.5 billion Apple demanded. However, the jury found that several Samsung products illegally used such Apple creations as the “bounceback” feature when a user scrolls to an end image, and the ability to zoom text with a finger tap. As part of its lawsuit, Apple also demanded that Samsung pull its most popular cellphones and computer tablets from the U.S. market. A judge was expected to make that ruling at a later time. After the verdicts were read, the judge sent the jury back to deliberate

US Judge dismisses Infosys harassment case BY ERIKA KINETZ AP BUSINESS WRITER MUMBAI, India (AP), An Alabama judge has dismissed a whistleblower harassment case against Indian outsourcing giant Infosys Technologies despite ongoing investigations of alleged U.S. visa fraud that arose from the complaint. Infosys consultant Jack Palmer claimed he was harassed after calling attention to what he believed was systemic U.S. visa fraud at Infosys. Palmer alleged that Infosys misused short-term work visas –which are cheaper and easier to get than longterm work visas – to send Indian employees to the United States for permanent work. Infosys denies the charges of visa fraud and welcomed Monday's judgment in the Palmer case, which was filed in 2011. “We are extremely pleased to consider this matter officially closed,” Infosys chief executive S.D. Shibulal said Tuesday. “This is a reaffirmation of our position that we did not retaliate and our view that this is a company which is built on core values.” He said that, for now, Palmer remains an employee. The judgment does not address the allegations of visa fraud, which are being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security and a federal grand jury, only the allegation by Palmer that he was harassed. In his ruling on the Palmer case, Judge Myron Thompson said threatening phone calls and anti-American statements directed at Palmer were “deeply disturbing,” but did not rise to the level of harassment as defined by Alabama state law. For Palmer to have won his suit, the harassment would have had to be “so outrageous in character and so extreme in degree as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency,” the judge wrote. Palmer said he received threatening calls, along the lines of, “Why are
you doing this, you stupid American, we have been good to you,” according to the judgment. In February 2011, Palmer found a note in ungrammatical English on his computer keyboard that read, according to the judgment: “Jack: Just leave your not wanted here hope your journey brings you death stupid American.” Palmer said that as a result of the threats and languishing without work, he takes antidepressants and sometimes carries a concealed gun. “(A)n argument could be made that such threats against whistleblowers, in particular, should be illegal,” Thomson wrote. “The issue before the court, however, is not whether Alabama should make these alleged wrongs actionable, but whether they are, in fact, illegal under state law. This court cannot rewrite state law.” The judge also ruled that Palmer must bear the costs of the litigation. Shibulal declined to comment on how much the company had spent fighting the case. Infosys is also fighting a second whistleblower case in a California court, filed by a former employee who said he was harassed and threatened after alerting Infosys managers and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to visa misuse. Satya Dev Tripuraneni, an accounts manager in Infosys' Fremont, California, office who quit in March, claims that Infosys routinely brought Indian workers to the U.S. on shortterm visas to work for clients, then convinced those clients to accept fake bills that said the work was done outside the U.S. He also claims that Infosys overcharged its U.S. clients. Infosys denies wrongdoing in that case as well. “We have done an internal investigation as per our policies and norms. We have found that the claims are unfounded,” Shibulal said. “Our lawyers are preparing for the defense.” Infosys stock closed up 2.4 percent in midday trade in Mumbai.
further on two inconsistencies involving about $2.5 million in damages awarded to Apple based on products jurors found didn't infringe Apple's patents. Those deliberations were continuing. During closing arguments at the trial, Apple attorney Harold McElhinny claimed Samsung was having a “crisis of design” after the 2007 launch of the iPhone, and executives with the South Korean company were determined to illegally cash in on the success of the revolutionary device. Samsung's lawyers countered that it was simply and legally giving consumers what they want: Smart phones with big screens. They said Samsung didn't violate any of Apple's patents and further alleged innovations claimed by Apple were actually created by other companies. Samsung has emerged as one of Apple's biggest rivals and has overtaken Apple as the leading smartphone maker. Samsung's Galaxy line of phones run on Android, a mobile operating system that Google Inc. has given out for free to Samsung and other phone makers. Samsung conceded that Apple makes great products but said it doesn't have a monopoly on the design of rectangle phones with rounded corners that it claimed it created. Google entered the smartphone market while its then-CEO Eric Schmidt was on Apple's board, infuriating Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who considered Android to be a blatant rip off of the iPhone's innovations. After shoving Schmidt off Apple's board, Jobs vowed that Apple would resort to “thermonuclear war” to destroy Android and its allies. The trial came after each side filed a blizzard of legal motions and refused advisories by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to settle the dispute out of court. Deliberations by the jury of seven men and two women began Wednesday. Apple and Samsung combined account for more than half of global smartphone sales. Samsung has sold 22.7 million smartphones and tablets that Apple claimed uses its technology. McElhinny said those devices accounted for $8.16 billion in sales since June 2010. From the beginning, legal experts and Wall Street analysts viewed Samsung as the underdog in the case.
Apple's headquarters is a mere 10 miles from the San Jose courthouse, and jurors were picked from the heart of Silicon Valley where Jobs is a revered technological pioneer. While the legal and technological issues were complex, patent expert Alexander I. Poltorak previously said the case would likely boil down to whether jurors believed Samsung's products look and feel almost identical to Apple's iPhone and iPad. To overcome that challenge at trial, Samsung's lawyers argued that many of Apple's claims of innovation were either obvious concepts or ideas stolen from Sony Corp. and others. Experts called that line of argument a high-risk strategy because of Apple's reputation as an innovator. Apple's lawyers argued there is almost no difference between Samsung products and those of Apple, and presented internal Samsung documents they said showed it copied Apple designs. Samsung lawyers insisted that several other companies and inventors had previously developed much of the Apple technology at issue. The U.S. trial is just the latest skirmish between the two tech giants over product designs. Apple and Samsung have filed similar lawsuits in eight other countries, including South Korea, Germany, Japan, Italy, the Netherlands, Britain, France and Australia. Samsung won a home court ruling earlier Friday in the global patent battle against Apple. Judges in Seoul said Samsung didn't copy the look and feel of the iPhone and ruled that Apple infringed on Samsung's wireless technology. However, the judges also said Samsung violated Apple's technology behind the feature that causes a screen to bounce back when a user scrolls to an end image. Both sides were ordered to pay limited damages. The Seoul ruling was a rare victory for Samsung in its arguments that Apple has infringed on its wireless technology patents. Samsung's claims have previously been shot down by courts in Europe. where judges have ruled that Samsung patents were part of industry standards that must be licensed under fair terms to competitors. The U.S. case is one of some 50 lawsuits among myriad telecommunications companies jockeying for position in the burgeoning $219 billion market for smartphones and computer tablets.

comes to cancer," according to Dr. Sharma. "Unfortunately, many people out there may not even realize that their risk for developing cancer is something they can alter, but it's true." Referred to as a cancer syndrome, this type of genetic predisposition increases a person's lifetime risk of developing cancer. "An individual diagnosed with cancer who has some family history, or women with a mother or sister diagnosed with breast cancer, or anyone diagnosed with multiple cancers, such as breast and ovarian - these individuals are our target audience when talking about heritability and cancer," Dr. Sharma says. For these individuals in particular, knowledge can make all the difference in early detection - and even avoidance of developing cancer, according to Dr. Sharma. In the past, she says patients have told her they thought they were destined to develop cancer - even die of it - because they had a family history of the disease. Dr. Sharma is adamant that this is not the case. And genetic testing has become a valuable tool in evaluating individuals' risk of certain types of cancer, as well as in taking steps to change that risk. Strategies to diagnose cancer early "When we do genetic testing, we're able to implement strategies to diagnose the cancer earlier and
sometimes even prevent it," Dr. Sharma says. "If we do test the individuals and family members, and an individual doesn't have the gene mutation - not gene then they know they don't have an increased risk, and therefore they don't have to do the more frequent screening." Dr. Sharma adds that one of the reasons she wants people to be aware of a family history of cancer is because this knowledge might change how screening is approached. Similarly, individuals diagnosed with more than two cancers are more prone to a genetic predisposition that could be shared amongst family members people whose screening schedules for cancer may change drastically based on this information. "Take, for example, the general screening schedule for colon cancer, which typically begins at age 50," she says. "If everything is normal, a person is screened five to 10 years later. However, with a strong family history, the schedule increases in frequency to one to three years. We always recommend that people with a first-degree relative who has been diagnosed begin the screening 10 years younger than the age their relative was diagnosed. We wouldn't wait until the age the cancer was found in the family member." Getting answers Stanford genetic counselor Nicki Chun recommends seeking
information rather than feeling anxious and uncertain about what the future may hold. "Many people have relatives with cancer," Chun says. "We'll discuss who might benefit from genetic testing, the basics of inherited cancer risk, what genetic tests are currently available, and what might become available in the future." She says people have a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to cancer risk, and genetic counseling is a good way of getting answers. "Two of the most common questions people have when they come to genetic counseling are: 'What caused my cancer?' and 'What does it mean for my kids and relatives?' The other outstanding question is: 'How will this affect my treatment?'" In addition to altering screening frequency, Chun says, treatment options for individuals with cancer are frequently adjusted based on knowledge about family history and genetic risk. Moreover, treatment modalities and technology also evolve quickly in the realm of cancer care, which is why it's important to seek the latest information, according to Chun.

Tri-City Stargazer AUGUST 29 – SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 BY VIVIAN CAROL For All Signs: On the 31st we will experience what is known as a "blue moon." The blue moon occurs approximately every 2.5 years, when a second full moon shines in a single month. It happens when the first full moon is early in the month and the last full moon is four weeks later, still within the same month. The expression "once in a blue moon" is used colloquially to mean not very often or rarely. This has been part of the English language at least since the time of Shakespeare. The moon does not actually change color for a "blue moon," although it occasionally appears to change color due to dust particles in our atmosphere.
Aries (March 21-April 20): This is a week in which you can make progress on negotiations with the powers that be. It is also favorable for investments, income that you share with others, and debts owed to you. Stay within the confines of “tradition” for best results. Outrageous ideas will probably not fly. Taurus (April 21-May 20): You may be taking a sober look at one or more relationships. Even the very closest friends cannot know each other from the inside. Sometimes we forget this fact and need to become aware that we are actually separate beings, helping when we can. Sometimes our energy is too low to be there for one another. Gemini (May 21-June 20): You are moving quickly this week. On the weekend, your focus shifts to matters of home, hearth, and family. There may be a conflict between family and partner for your attention. On Monday and Tuesday, the input overload from the week may turn your brain to fuzz. Give yourself a rest. Cancer (June 21-July 21): Your heart and mind may be in conflict over just how to proceed with your
next projects. This is a good time to reorganize drawers, closets, or maybe your desk. The act of putting clutter into order will clear your mind and then the right solution is likely to surface.
thing there, or have you invented your own worry? This may be a week of multiple demands in your career. Take your time and concentrate on what must be done. This won’t last long.
and also the Internet, and participation in your place of worship. Put the Critic out of your mind, whether he is judging inwardly or pointing at someone else. He exaggerates well beyond the truth.
Leo the Lion (July 22-Aug 22): This week brings more than one opportunity to attend to the mental or physical health of another. At the same time you want to maintain your good personal habits. Financial concerns require some focus and attention. You may be asked to handle money for someone else in your life.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): You are unusually comfortable in your own skin this week. Activities involving neighbors, roommates, education or travel are all favored. You have a sense of physical strength at this time that will be especially beneficial if you are exercising or in any type of competition.
Virgo the Virgin (Aug 23-Sep 22): This is a particularly complicated week. Your calendar must be booked to the limit. Your mind is leaning toward the creative throughout this period. Meanwhile, on the weekend your mind may move into fuzz mode, due to too much input. Give yourself a mental break.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): The Archers always prefer to see the big picture. However, at this time you are encountering the “devil in the details”. Your inspiration is moving far and wide, but the problem is in just how to get from A to Z. Or perhaps you know how, but are hoping someone else will take on this problem and resolve it for you.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): You began a creative project in the areas of education, the law, or writing/publishing in October of 2011. The result of that effort is now apparent to you. It is probable you have used it in more ways than you initially thought. There may not be marching bands, bells and whistles, but it is a satisfying accomplishment.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Don't allow fear and pessimism to interfere with your pleasure in life. If something is nagging at you, take a clear and direct look at it. Is there really any-
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): There are green lights and good news in any of the following areas: legal interests, education, publishing, travel by long distance
Pisces (February 19-March 20): Make a special effort to keep up with keys, tickets, and other small items. Your feelings are easily injured right now. On the other hand, you may be the offender, hurting someone else. Try to stay on the planet and think carefully before you speak. If you feel "hurt", don't leap to a conclusion before you ask what the meaning is of a behavior or a comment.

Restoring the Delta is essential to Santa Clara County SANTOS COLUMN SANTA CLARA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT The Delta is a critical component of our water system. Here in the Silicon Valley, 40 percent of our water supply passes through the Delta. Our imported water comes from the Sierra Nevada snowmelt and rainfall that fills rivers and streams that flow toward the San Francisco Bay. Much of that mountain water flows through the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to communities throughout the Bay Area. Yet, after decades of alterations, the Delta is far from the natural estuary it once was. The Delta’s 150-year old man-made network of levees is old and fragile. It is the hub of California’s water system, providing drinking water to 25 million Californians. Without an effective conservation and renewal strategy, the
Delta’s sensitive ecosystem and water transport system will continue to deteriorate, threatening the delivery of safe, reliable drinking water to the nearly 1.8 million residents that we serve. The Santa Clara Valley Water District and other public water agencies, environmental and conservation organizations, state and federal agencies, farmers and other interest groups have been working since 2006 on the Bay
Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP). These parties have spent countless hours and millions of dollars to understand the environmental science and address competing interests for Delta-conveyed water. The statewide BDCP effort is attempting to achieve water supply reliability and ecosystem restoration for the Delta. To sustain our economy and our way of life, we must find a balanced solution that restores the Delta ecosystem and assures long-term sustainable water supplies. As the name implies, the Bay Delta Conservation Plan is a comprehensive habitat conservation plan for the recovery of threatened and endangered species and benefit of the environment. New science is showing the need to address stresses on the Delta's environment, as well as the timing and quantity of flows and diversions. The BDCP pro-
poses to restore as much as 113,000 acres of tidal marsh and other habitat, an unprecedented restoration plan covering nearly the same land mass as the city of San Jose. Studies by researchers at UC Davis identified a two-thirds chance of major Delta levee failures within the next 20 years. This would not only have a major effect on the residents of the Delta, but also on our region and statewide water supply. Locally, we are continuing to reduce our reliance on the Delta. Thanks to our ongoing conservation efforts, today we use 15 percent less water than we did in 1990, even though our population has grown by 300,000 people. We also actively maintain and protect our groundwater basin, storing water underground during wet years for use during dry years. In addition, we are teaming with the city of San Jose
to construct a state-of-the-art advanced water purification facility to expand our use of locally sourced recycled water. However, we cannot solve this problem by addressing only the demand side of the equation. Nor can we attempt to force a solution that secures supplies for one stakeholder group over another. Instead, all parties must compromise to reach a balanced solution that restores the health of the Delta ecosystem and assures sustainable water supplies. To learn more about how we can all work together to restore the Delta, view our Delta brochure at www.valleywater.org. As always, I am available for questions or comments as your District 3 representative for the northern areas of Sunnyvale and Santa Clara; Alviso; Milpitas; and the north San Jose and Berryessa communities. Feel free to contact me at (408) 234-7707.

n the past, schools regularly offered electives classes such as metal shop, ceramics and woodworking, but budget cuts have forced the termination of many of these studies. Changes in elective school curriculum has not, however, stopped 4-H, a national organization dedicated to preparing youth, age 5-19, from allowing the exploration of a plethora of extracurricular activities. Marksmanship, photography, oceanography, jewelry making, cooking, rocketry, citizen leadership, poultry, sewing, leather making, hiking, gardening and web design—the Bayside 4-H club offers all of these projects and much more. “We pick up where the schools have stopped,” says Alameda County 4-H program representative May McMann. “We all know that all work and no play is not healthy for anybody. So [the youth] are learning while having fun and also, how to balance their lives.” The four H’s are explained in the 4-H pledge: “I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service and my health to better living for my club, my community, my country and my world.” Started over 35 years ago, Bayside 4-H club has long moved from 4-H’s rural, farm animal-focused roots and adapted to Fremont’s urban environment. The club now boasts around 60 members who participate in numerous club, county and state projects. Vice president Rhea Nayak, age 15 says, “There’s so much… it’s really cool.” Every school year, club members choose their projects for the upcoming year. Project leader Janine Weston likes the flexibility saying, If you do [a project] one year and don’t want to ever do it again, you don’t have to. 4-H is the best hands-on education you can get.” Members learn responsibility, public speaking and presentation skills through participation. 13-yearold Ricky Rivera joined Bayside 4-H two years ago and developed his presentation skills through the poultry project. He says, “People ask you questions and you learn how to respond to them.” The 8th grader said it also helped prepare him to speak in front of others. “I didn’t think I would ever do this, but I talked in front of the whole school and I got elected for student council. If 4-H wasn’t part of my life, I probably
WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE
wouldn’t ever have built up the confidence [to talk] in front of people.” Members have an opportunity to practice presentation skills at “field days” when they showcase their projects and are judged on presentation skills. If they do well at a county-level presentation, they can move on to sectional and state competition. Ricky’s mother, Edda Rivera, says 4-H is helping her son with important life skills. While participating in the poultry project, he had to feed, clean and care for his chickens. “It encourages him to be responsible.” The club’s various projects also help members grasp where their interests lie. “You really get to learn what you want to be,” says 16year-old Ariele Silvas. “Using the experience that 4-H gave me, I was really able to pinpoint and be more specific about what I wanted to do
about quiches [in the cooking project]. I wasn’t a quiche fan, myself, but we ended up making them and I loved them… it was wonderful.” The club also promotes community service and active citizenship. Citizen leadership is a
county-wide project that allows older members to learn about government. Members who qualify may travel to Sacramento for a state focus or to Washington D.C. for a national focus. According to community club leader Beth Pratt, “[It] helps them understand politics a little bit and what’s actually going on; it’s a big opportunity.” The program’s unique youth-adult partnership means that although parents and adult leaders are around to guide, members decide what they want the club to do every year. Club members are currently trying to boost Bayside 4-H’s visibility around the community. “We don’t want to be the best-kept secret anymore. We want to be known,” says McMann. The members plan to increase their community service and to visit more schools and youth-run events in order to spread awareness of Bayside

4-H. Individual members also frequently recruit friends and classmates to join. The club meets at 7 p.m. every second Monday of each month at Maloney Elementary School. Each project also conducts its own meetings once or twice each month. The $55 registration fee covers liability insurance while additional fees may be needed for select projects. Bayside 4-H club is hosting an open house Monday, September 10 at Maloney Elementary School. Anybody interested in learning more or joining the club is welcome to attend. “It makes our children contributing members of society,” says McMann. “You’re not preparing your kids to improve the world when they are adults— they’re doing it now.”

with my life.” Ariele, president of the club, says she learned about teamwork and leadership through 4-H. “Nowadays a lot of kids might be scared to speak in public… but 4-H really encourages you to know when it’s time to be listener or a follower, or when it’s time to be a leader.” With over 1,100 members and leaders in Alameda County, 4-H programs, members often develop better social skills as they meet new people and make friends. “I’ve learned how to actually get along with more people,” says 16-yearold Kayla Colglazier. “There was someone who wanted to learn Club members volunteer on Coastal Cleanup Day

Johnny be Good Wins Hoops Classic
Johnny be Good – pictured left to right: Coach Glenn Pon, Deven Wani, Tyler Pon, Adanael Valle, Kyle Alcosiba, Josh Ramirez
SUBMITTED BY CANDY ALCOSIBA On Saturday, August 18, the San Lorenzo Japanese Christian Church held its annual 3 on 3 Hoops Classic Tournament at the Alameda Point Gym in Alameda. The tournament of about ten divisions consists of adults and youth from a wide area, growing in popularity every year. Guest speakers add to tournament popularity and this year, Oakland Raiders Stefan Wisineiwski delivered a testament of his faith and commitments bringing encouragement to the athletes. For the second year, Pastor and Coach Glen Pon represented Fremont Christian School with players of the Fremont Christian junior high basketball team. After taking first place in the tournament last year, they knew they were the team to beat and they had a title to defend. But with more teams involved and much tougher competition, they would have to work hard throughout the day to accomplish their goal. The Johnny be Good team of Josh Ramirez, Kyle Alcosiba, Tyler Pon, Adanael Valle and Deven Wani proved to be an unstoppable powerhouse at the tournament. Coach Pon was not worried, “We began practice in early July and worked hard.” He said. “We have a nice mixture of players who have been there before and all players have their own individual strengths, and know how to play team ball, as well as know how to take advantage of mismatches and opening.” Things got off to a shaky start for
Johnny be Good – a name in honor of their summer English homework assignment. They faced what would prove to be their toughest competition in the tournament, team Redemption. Redemption gave Johnny be Good no slack and dominated offensively throughout the game. Losing 21-8, the Johnny be Gooders were in need of some team redemption. And although the loss was tough on the team, Coach Pon remained confident, “It’s better to lose the first one, than the last one.” He told the boys after their defeat. “I did not worry about the first game lopsided loss knowing that we will get better with each game and may face them again in the playoffs.” said Pon. Realizing they were not playing their best, and the title could be at risk, they came back for their second game against the Fab Four. Tyler Pon had an amazing game scoring three back-to-back three pointers tilting the scoreboard early on in the game. But as always with the Fremont Christian players, wins are a collaborative effort and every player contributed to their 21-6 victory over their opponent. Closing them down early on restored their confidence, and that was all they needed. The game three win over Sunset was a victory that solidified Johnny be Good’s presence in the tournament. While each player did their part in the game it was Josh Ramirez drove the score up quickly with ten of the 21-6 victory. Great defense by Kyle Alcosiba and Adanael Valle made the shots possible.
Game four, and the first game into the single elimination bracket, Johnny be Good was facing the Dream Team. Ramirez and Pon scored 16 points between them while Alcosiba, Wani and Valle supplied the balance of points and sealed the fate of the game with a final score of 21-10. Game five against Sunset was a dominating victory for the Johnny be Gooders. This time Alcosiba was among the high point scorers with 8 points along with Ramirez who scored 6. The 21-6 triumph put them in the championship bracket where they would face off, yet again, with the Redemption. The final game of the day was an intense battle between two extremely strong teams. The Redemption, who may have thought they knew Johnny be Good’s game, was in for an immediate shock. Running the scoreboard up early on, the team settled in with a 17 to 10 lead. However, the Redemption was ferociously fighting back as they wanted the title as much as Johnny be Good. But Tyler Pon made the last shot of the day, a 3-pointer that was shot far beyond the 3-point line. Once the team digested what had just happened, smiles, shrieks and hugs were the scene as the Johnny be Gooders, from Fremont Christian School won their second title. “Every member of the team is equally important to the team.” Kyle Alcosiba said. “We lose together and we win together, we are a team.” The victory is sweet and the Johnny be Gooders will be back next year to defend their title.
Defense dominates as Eagles triumph SUBMITTED BY MIKE HEIGHTCHEW In a game of defense, American High’s Eagles came out on top after a scoreless battle with the Arroyo Dons of San Lorenzo until the fourth quarter. Although stingy on defense, American’s offense sputtered. Finally, after a superb defensive effort allowing only 46 years to Arroyo and
early season jitters that plagued both teams, Matthew Ried scored the game-winning touchdown that seemed to take the heart out of the Arroyo team; Anthony Wellington added another. Final score: American 12, Arroyo 0. Next up for the 1-0 Eagles is the Granada Matadors of Brentwood, also 1-0, in a non-league contest Friday, August 31.

Logan football kicks off preseason with dominant win SUBMITTED BY: VISHAK MENON PHOTOS BY MIKE HEIGHTCHEW James Logan pushed past their first preseason opponent with a win over Reed High School from Sparks, Nevada on Saturday, August 25. Although the game was still close at halftime, strong performances from quarterback Jeffrey Prothro Jr. and wide receiver/defensive back Karsten Wethington allowed Logan to take over in the second half and finish with a 40-24 victory. Reed was Logan’s first independent league opponent, after having dropped out of MVAL, where they won the last five of six league titles. The Reed Raiders, led by quarterback Mark Nowaczewski, are also coming off a dominant performance last year
where they were undefeated in league play. However, in the first few minutes of the game it became clear who was in control. The Raiders’ first offensive play resulted in an interception by Logan running back/linebacker Warren Miles Long, who recently committed to play football for Northwestern University. On Logan’s next possession, Long put the first points on the board on a rushing touchdown, moving the Colts into the lead, 7-0. After the first quarter, Logan led Reed 7-6. In the second quarter, a few strong rushes by running back/outside linebacker Scott Kao set up running back/defensive back Damond Beasley for a touchdown, increasing Logan’s lead to 13-6. On the defensive end, some costly penalties
against Logan allowed the Raiders to gain yardage and advance yet again, setting up Nowaczewski for another touchdown. This left the score at 1312 with Logan still in the lead going into halftime. In the third quarter, Logan hit the ground running. Wethington returned the kickoff for an amazing 93yard touchdown. Reed responded
with a quarterback sneak for a touchdown to keep the game close at 1918, but Logan would take over the game after that. Prothro Jr. showed off some of his own running skills with a touchdown run for 38 yards and another near the end of the quarter for 60 yards. In between, an interception from Wethington allowed Prothro Jr. to pass to wide

The Douglas Morrisson Theatre continues its 2012 “Family Portraits” season with “Grey Gardens,” the humorous and heartbreaking Broadway hit musical about Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Nominated for 10 Tony Awards and winner of three, “Grey Gardens” features book by Doug Wright (“Quills,” “I am My Own Wife”), music by Scott Frankel, and lyrics by Michael Korie. “Grey Gardens” is based on the 1975 film “Grey Gardens” by David Maysles, Albert Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Mayer, and Susan Froemke, and it is the first Broadway musical ever to be based on a documentary. The Maysles film tells the story of Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (“Edith” or “Big Edie”), aunt to Jacqueline Bouvier Jenifer Tice as Edith Bouvier Beale ("Little Edie") Kennedy Onassis, and her daughter tracted to this project because of the (“Edie” or “Little Edie”), who lived in their decaying, flea- and vermin-infested [documentary’s] unique blend of humor, heartache and humanity.

Eagle Scout project completed SUBMITTED BY CITY OF UNION CITY
n August 3, Ryan Cooper from Boy Scouts of America Troop 273 and his crew of volunteers completed his Eagle Scout project with the City of Union City Public Works. Ryan built a tree nursery for the city, this new setup for staging and watering the plants for future City plantings has a good design and efficient arrangement. Ryan and his fellow scouts learned how to lay in landscape fabric and recycled base rock to handle drainage and prevent weeds. They also set posts in a straight line, attached cable, drip lines and emitters and hooked them into automatic irrigation valves and a controller. Ryan and his fellow scouts understand the importance of trees: • Trees intercept rainwater aiding soil absorption for gradual release into streams, preventing flooding, filtering toxins and impurities, and extending water availability into dry months when it is most needed. • Trees cleanse ground water as it filters through their root systems. • Water from roots is drawn up to the leaves where it evaporates. The conversion from water to gas absorbs huge amounts of heat, cooling hot city air. • Trees help offset the "heat island" effect resulting from too much glass and concrete. A one-degree rise in temperature equals a 2% increase in peak electricity consumption. The Boy Scouts of America are one of our main driving forces for planting trees in Union City. Most of our Eagle Scout projects are dedicated to planting trees in neighborhood parks and along boulevards and roadsides. These young men have become stewards in our urban forest and we owe them and their parents a lot of appreciation. Alex Quintero and Matt Bauchou from U.C. Public Works assisted Ryan with this project.

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE
WILLIAM MARSHAK “May you have the hindsight to know where you've been, The foresight to know where you are going, And the insight to know when you have gone too far” Irish Blessing
uring the recent Fremont City Council’s discussion of the merits of adopting the Private Open Space Initiative prior to inclusion on the November election, comments were made questioning the wisdom of the initiative process in general and associated problems of unintended consequences. While these sage observations were considered by the council, the die had already been cast by voter signatures on a petition; the council grudgingly – by a 3-2 vote – spared the City from a costly, divisive and possibly disastrous campaign for the lone councilmember asking for reelection. This issue, preservation of open space, closely linked to the current Kimber Park private open space battle, strikes a harmonious chord with many voters in the Tri-City area. At the root of this disagreement is another, less obvious tension – government versus private control of property and policy. While special interests can detour and undermine the public sector, the same can be done by special interest groups using the initiative process. So, which way is best?
My answer is that neither has a lock on validity; both require intense scrutiny of their arguments pro or con. Voters will soon be faced with propositions and measures on the November ballot, some proposed by legislative fiat and others through different processes. The positive or negative aspects of these proposals may not lie in the source, rather the context and intended consequence. Of course, unintended consequences are of major concern as well, but those are often the purview of hindsight. As the saying goes, “Hindsight is 20/20.” It provides simple answers and explanations to many complex issues which have yet to unfold. No one seems to have all the answers to the future, even politicians who make such claims, at least when asking for votes. Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher summed it up for the public arena saying, “The wisdom of hindsight, so useful to historians and indeed to authors of memoirs, is sadly denied to practicing politicians.” Even though we usually do not have the luxury of hindsight, adequate review and preparation before some decisions are made can help avoid regret. Slated for Planning Commission consideration last week was the grand plan of a regional park in place of the recently abandoned Dumbarton Quarry. In use since 1970 to provide aggregate rock for infrastructure throughout the Bay Area, the 300 foot deep pit was envisioned as a recreational lake coupled with reclamation of surrounding land for camping and trail connections to adjacent Coyote Hills Regional Park. Extensive plans were unfurled to promote this unique concept of a local, overnight camping facility. The idea was grand, but when quarry operations ceased in 2007, the lake concept began to evaporate; the current staff
report noted, “…the planned lake had no identified water source or drainage.” Obstacles have been blamed on “changes in environmental and regulatory conditions but filling a pit of this size and determining how to provide drainage for such a massive amount of water was always a factor. The new plan is to send a daily average of 100 truckloads of fill to this site for the next 12-17 years. Lakeside campgrounds, boating, fishing… gone, at least in my actuarial lifetime. So much for planning experts imbued with 20/20 foresight. Ideas will continue to flow, some great in hindsight, others not so good, but each of us has the obligation to question and expand these concepts, sometimes requiring an overhaul of brilliant ideas. The question of a lake for the Dumbarton regional park may not have to be an either-or proposition. What about other uses for a partially filled pit instead of simply filling it completely? A smaller lake or reservoir, even an amphitheater has been suggested. Since the timeframe for filling this immense pit is over a decade, now is time to be a bit more creative. Put in context, the value of hindsight is not to limit ideas but shape them for intelligent scrutiny over time. Grand plans should be flexible enough to transform over time, allowing future generations to mold them. Ideas from the public and private sector are welcome!

Senate committee passes bill to fund spinal cord injury research SUBMITTED BY JEFF BARBOSA A bill by Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont), to fund cutting-edge spinal cord injury research in California, was approved on August 6, 2012 by the Senate Appropriations Committee on a 4-2 vote. The bill, AB 1657, now goes to the Senate floor. “This is a great day for the 650,000 Cali-
fornians living with paralysis,” Assemblyman Wieckowski said. “Progress in spinal cord injury research opens the door for gains against other neurological conditions. This bill will help sustain California’s leadership in the biosciences.” AB 1657 will provide funding for the Roman Reed Spinal Cord Injury Research Act, established in 2000. The program is run
through the University of California and administered out of the Reeve-Irvine Research Center at the University of California, Irvine. It provides key initial grants to top neurologists throughout the state for groundbreaking research. The funding would be provided through a $1 penalty on all moving traffic violation convictions. Traffic accidents are the primary cause of spinal cord injuries.

Newark Unified School District rocks the house
On August 23, Newark Unified School District (NUSD) had an organizational kick-off to start the 2012-13 school year. In attendance at the event, held at the Newark Memorial High School Commons, were 400 teachers, classified personnel, Board and community members as well as district leaders. The excitement was contagious! The morning began with a beautiful continental breakfast prepared by Newark Unified School District’s Child Nutritional Services. After everyone had time to reconnect, guests were introduced and welcomed back by the Board Vice President Jan Crocker, Newark Teachers Association Representative Jacob Goldsmith, California School Employee Association Representative Mary Grundmann, and Newark Man-
agement Association President Kathleen Waffle. Mr. Erwin, Senior Director of Human Resources introduced thirty new teachers, classified and management staff to the Newark Unified School District family. Dr. Dave Marken, Superintendent, then challenged the gathering with startling statistics, a touch of humor, and the encouragement to work together for the benefit of Newark Unified School District’s students. All staff members received a “Team NUSD” shirt to show our collective solidarity to improving student learning. The shirts were gifted generously by the KNN and De La Rosa firms. In addition, leadership created eleven gift baskets as raffle prizes for staff. The event ended with all leadership singing to our amazing group of educators, “You are Transformational.” Great start, moving toward a great year!

The entire Dumbarton Bridge will be closed during Labor Day weekend – September 1-3 - to complete another major element of the seismic retrofit project. Over the threeday closure, Caltrans will replace the expansion joint on the eastern side of the bridge across all six lanes of traffic. During the closure, motorists are encouraged to take public transit or alternate driving routes. Motorists should allow extra time for travel and use other bridges, including Highway 237 and Hwy 92 via the San Mateo Bridge. For the past few months, nightly lane closures have allowed crews to access inside and underneath the bridge deck to complete work while traffic continues to flow overhead. The first full closure of the bridge occurred over Memorial Day weekend 2012, when crews replaced the western expansion joint. Pre-closure activities for the upcoming closure will continue until Labor Day weekend 2012. Get the latest construction and closure updates at DumbartonBridgeInfo.org, and the latest information on transit and transportation options at 511.org.
male adult, 25 years old, 6'0", medium build, short hair, wearing a blue shirt.

New Haven Unified Board of Education update SUBMITTED BY RICK LA PLANTE The Board of Education recently approved Decoto School for Independent Study as the name for the District’s new school for independent study students, which will open this fall on the campus of the New Haven Adult School. Two names – Decoto School for Independent Study and Itliong-Veracruz School for Independent Study – were forwarded to the Board by the Facility Names Committee, a group a five community members appointed by the Board to consider suggestions and make recommendations. The committee, which met in June, considered 10 names suggested by the community and was charged with recommending no more than three possibilities to the Board. The name Decoto was suggested in part because the District closed Decoto Elementary School, located on the same site, when nearby Emanuele Elementary opened in 1998. The school dates back to the 1870s, and the current auditorium has been in use since 1925, although most of the rest of the campus was built in the 1950’s.

The name Itliong-Veracruz was submitted in honor of Filipino-American labor leaders Larry Itliong and Philip Veracruz, contemporaries of Cesar Chavez and fellow organizers of the 1965 Delano grape strike that led to the organization of the United Farm Workers movement. Board members asked that time be set aside at a future meeting to consider naming another District facility in honor of the Filipino community. Also, the Board: Heard a presentation from KNN Public Finance, the District’s financial advisor. With KNN’s help, the District in June moved to refund some of its outstanding general obligation bonds, taking advantage of historically low interest rates in the municipal bond market. Although the savings will not help mitigate the District’s current budget issues, it does help taxpayers by generating more than $4.1 million in present value savings. Four refunding issuances since 2000 have reduced future debt service obligations by more than $25 million. Observed a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the recent mass shootings at a theater in Colorado and the Sikh gurdwara in Wisconsin.

nspiration and beauty are often borne out of the difficulties of life. Such was the case for local budding artist, Antoinette Martinez. A child of the ‘70s, Martinez spent her early childhood years in Pacifica.
Today, she divides her time between her work at a professional services company in Los Gatos and furthering her artistic endeavors. During the month of September, Martinez will be featured in an exhibit and special reception at Mission Coffee in Fremont. Martinez describes her childhood as one filled with days of fishing and hanging out at the beach with friends. The leisurely days changed once the family moved to

Hayward when she entered junior high school. Adult life brought its own hardships with the tragic loss of her brother and two job layoffs. Though Martinez loved art as a child and took art classes all through high school, she became world-weary with the devastating losses she experienced. “The light
goes out when tragedy hits. You lose your gifts. They’re still there, but lying dormant.” Martinez’s interest in becoming a professional artist began when she studied Graphic Design at Silicon Valley University. She designed some logos for a few jobs, but then got mired in the details of life, being a mother, and working. At one point she found herself back home, living with her parents after 20 years of being out of the nest. Martinez
chose to use this time well, writing regularly in a journal of all the dreams she hoped to accomplish one day. The light is coming back now for Martinez, who is successfully rebuilding her life. She has experienced a new awakening and is rediscovering her gifts as an artist. That journal list now has many items checked off. One of the most amazing accomplishments for Martinez came in the form of a trip to New York. Martinez entered the Art Takes Times Square competition produced by Artists Wanted, an online professional portfolio site for artists to share their work. Art Takes Times Square drew tens of
thousands of artists from all over the world, and Martinez’s work was chosen for recognition and is being featured in the publication on the event. Last fall, Martinez had the privilege of participating in a San
A classic tale of horror and suspense detailing the ill-fated experiments of young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to fathom the secrets of life and death. Purchasing cadavers from two unsavory grave robbers, he gives life to a creature both hideous and touching – and so physically powerful and mentally twisted that he soon brings death or destruction to all who stand in his way. Brooding terror and shock are blended with questions of the morality and danger of unrestrained scientific inquiry. Broadway West Theatre Company, 4000-B Bay Street in Fremont, presents Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, adapted by Victor Gialanella, directed by Paula Chenoweth, September 14 through October 13. Performance times are 8 pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There are three Sunday matinees: September 23 and 30 matinee performances begin with a continental brunch (included in price of ticket) at 12:15 pm, and the show begins at 1 pm. The October 7 performance starts at 1 pm with refreshments during intermission (included in price of ticket). For reservations and information, call 510-683-9218, or purchase tickets on our website at www.broadwaywest.org.
Francisco art-based rally, Artists Against Rape, sponsored by San Francisco Women Against Rape. The painting she produced for the rally portrayed a woman who became one with her oppressor, smiling through tragedy, as is sometimes the case when victims feel they must hide their feelings of shame. This work is also being published in a book based on the work of the San Francisco group. Martinez’s work is vibrant and full of life. She says of her art, “What drives me is my love of color and of the world and everything I see.” Her strong faith flows as a theme through several of her paintings. She says that she felt an inner impression, the leading of God, guiding her towards painting. Initially trained in watercolors, Martinez has branched out to acrylics and is trying a new technique for the paintings that will be displayed at Mission Coffee throughout September. A special reception is being
held on Sunday, September 9 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wine, coffee, and music will tempt the taste buds and soothe the soul as participants mingle and meet the artist. Tickets for an auction of one of Martinez’s paintings will be available for $5. As art programs in local schools dwindle, community support of local artists becomes more crucial. Come by Mission Coffee and meet a gifted, glowing local artist! Art of Antoinette Martinez September 1 - 30 Mon-Fri: 5 a.m. - 9 p.m. Sat-Sun: 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. Artist Reception Sunday, September 9 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mission Coffee 151 Washington Blvd., Fremont (510) 693-0627 RSVP to email@example.com
