Editor’s Note

MAY 2018

Following dog rules is not always a walk in park

C

all me crazy, but I think laws ought to be easy to understand — at the very least for those who enforce them. Take laws governing your family pet. Can you take her on a walk in a San Mateo County Park? How about in a park within the city of Half Moon Bay? Can she be on a leash at Half Moon Bay State Beach? What about Montara State Beach? The answers to all those questions vary somewhat and it’s easy to see how that is very frustrating, both for dog owners and those charged with protecting the flora and fauna your pooch might defile. Jeff Christner, director of animal rescue, control and humane investigations for the Peninsula Humane Society/SPCA, did his best to describe the rules to me for my story (beginning on Page 14 of this magazine), but even the guy who writes the tickets admits the rules are difficult to understand. Actually, his office used to be charged with writing citations for off-leash animals, but, well, that’s another story. If you care about your pet and Coastside wildlife, I hope you’ll read on. Also, take a look at Carina Woudenberg’s story highlighting some of the World War II infrastructure that still exists as ruins on the coast. (Page 32.) Jamie Soja’s stark and moody photographs of some of these forgotten relics are as compelling as anything we offer this month. And Sara Hayden tells us about Coastside beekeepers. Many are buzzing with concern for the survival of this crucial insect that is as integral to the success of some plants as water and sunlight. Read all about it, beginning on Page 22. Spring is the perfect time to get out and about on the coast. You might even take your dog along, just be sure to follow the rules.

Flashback

A memorable deed

T

here was a strange sight for motorists trudging over the hill one Monday in February, 1975. It appeared to be the Pony Express, headed toward Half Moon Bay. Well, really, it was a bunch of dignitaries, riding horseback and by stagecoach from the county clerk’s office in Redwood City to the Johnston House in Half Moon Bay. The occasion was the sale of the historic salt-box structure from the county to the city. Half Moon Bay Mayor Melvin Mello delivered the deed the final mile as a gathering of civic leaders and history buffs looked on. The relay began with county clerk Marvin Church riding away from the county offices. And there was a very special guest in attendance: Petra Johnston Cooper, 83, was the granddaughter of James Johnston, who originally built the house for his Spanish wife in 1853. At the time, the 20 acres surrounding the then-delapidated structure was known as the Cassinelli ranch. For four years, the city and the Johnston House Foundation had been lobbying to acquire the property to refurbish it as a landmark of the coast. Those in the procession had a lot of fun that day, though there was one problem. The stagecoach — provided by Wells Fargo Bank — was robbed! OK, it was just for fun, but it must have made quite a sight coming down Highway 92.

LAWS GOVERNING PETS ON BEACH ARE CONFUSING, BUT IMPORTANT

T

here are many iconic California scenes — the Golden Gate Bridge seen from the air, sweeping views of vineyards in the North Bay, vast fields of vegetables through the San Joaquin Valley. Many dog owners conjure images of tossing a piece of driftwood end over end across a secluded beach and watching as Fido chases it down as the sun sets slowly over the Pacific. Well, it might be best to forget about that last vision. Most cities and counties — including Half Moon Bay and San Mateo County — regulate dogs on the beach. Often, that means keeping your animals on a leash at all times and picking up after them. And in some areas, dogs aren’t allowed at all. Knowing where and when your best friend is allowed can save you a fine or worse should your dog bite someone or upset area wildlife. Unless otherwise noted, state beaches, like the sprawling Half Moon Bay State Beach, don’t allow dogs under any circumstances. State Parks does allow leashed dogs on Montara and Bean Hollow state beaches, according to Jeff Christner, director of animal rescue, control and humane investigations 227 Kelly St., built 1900 16

for the Peninsula Humane Society/ SPCA. County law forbids dogs from any county park, including Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. In fact, county law states that all unleashed dogs must be in “enclosed premises.” That means that by law they aren’t allowed to be off leash even in your front yard. Until 2003, it was the responsibility of Christner’s office to enforce city and county animal control laws. Now, he says, the contract with local governments no longer calls for active enforcement of such laws, though his team will issue a citation if it sees a violation. Those tickets can prove costly, generally between $200 and $400. As a practical matter, however, more people are breaking the rules than enforcing them. “You really have to know where these jurisdictions are,” Christner said. “When we were responsible for enforcement it made it very difficult. It’s definitely confusing due to the number of jurisdictions and laws out there.” If you are still confused, you are not alone. Even supposed authorities give the wrong advice about dogs at the

beach. For instance, a website called Californiabeaches.com lists a host of supposedly dog-friendly beaches, where they are allowed to run free. It includes Pelican Point Beach, at the end of Miramontes Point Road in Half Moon Bay, Mirada Surf West to the north, and Esplanade Beach in Pacifica as havens for dogwalkers looking for a place to let their animals run free. That may be the practice at many of the dozens of California beaches listed on the site, but sometimes practice and regulation diverge, Christner said. He noted, for instance, that the city of Pacifica does allow off-leash dog-walking at Esplanade Beach, but, in practice, just as many people and their dogs make use of the beach to the south, adjacent the golf course. There is good reason to err on the side of caution when it comes to letting your dog run free. Dog bites can lead to costly court cases. Occasionally, dog-walkers are injured or even killed trying to save their animals as they flounder in the surf or fall from the bluffs. Then there is concern for wildlife. The need to keep dogs on leashes came into

stark relief in April, when an off-leash dog attacked and sliced the throat of a harbor seal on the beach at Ross’s Cove, near the Pillar Point bluffs. The Coastside couple that owned the dog told investigators that they didn’t know dogs weren’t allowed to roam free and that they had been letting theirs run in that area for years. The case is now in the hands of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration investigators. Coastside naturalist Kris Lannin Liang was horrified by the incident, but said she wasn’t surprised to learn off-leash dogs had attacked a harbor seal. “They’re not permitted at all within Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, the picnic area, or the bluff …” she said. “And yet, on any given day, you can find dogs stuffed in jackets on the reef, in the picnic area/ parking lot, the bluff, Seal Cove, and Ross’ Cove.” HALF MOON BAY

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? If you want to walk your dog at the beach: Look for posted signs expressly permitting dogs. If you don’t see one, and can’t ask an authority, assume they are not allowed. If you see unleashed dogs at the beach: Call the PHS/SPCA at 340-7022.

Brendan Barnard enjoys the literal fruits of his labor in El Granada.

I

t’s like ‘barnyard,’ without a ‘y,’” Kris Barnard explained when spelling her last name. But she and her husband, Brendan, have a proverbial barnyard around their El Granada home. There live seven chickens, three dogs, one duck — and thousands of bees. Dressed in matching white protective suits, the couple recently went to visit the latter, coaxing them out of their wooden hive with soft billows of smoke. “They’re very low maintenance, except for the stories I told you,” she said. These stories, sometimes dramatic, include some of the tribulations they’ve run into since becoming beekeepers about three years ago. “It can be a little Shakespearean, or like a telenovela. We saw them kill the queen and throw her over the edge of the hive,” she recalled. “The mites took over and we started having yellow jackets come in. (They) robbed the hive of honey and killed all the bees. ‘We were like, ‘Holy crap.’ It was like a ghost town.” The Barnards have learned that caring for honey bees is unlike caring for their other animals. “When bees get sick, they’re a colony. You can’t pick one bee out and be like, ‘I’m going to take this one bee to the vet.’ You’re looking over them and shepherding them, but there’s not a lot you can do other than that,” she said. “They’re going to do whatever they want to do.” Their uncertain fate is a problem that U.S. honey beekeepers have wrestled with since some began to buzz about unusually high honey bee losses in the 2006-2007 winter. That drew attention to Colony Collapse Disorder: the phenomenon of a colony’s worker bees all but disappearing and leaving their queen and her brood behind. In 2015-2016, U.S. beekeepers lost an estimated 44 percent of their colonies, according to information compiled by the nonprofit Bee Informed Partnership.

Raymond Wolfgramm says that 2018 has started well for local honeybee colonies.

“TWO OUT OF THREE BITES OF FOOD YOU EAT COME FROM THE BEES.” RAYMOND WOLFGRAMM, NORCAL HONEYBEE RESCUE

Despite their honey bee setbacks, the Barnards say they feel compelled to keep trying. “It’s been a narrative for a good chunk of our lives that honey bees are dying and bee populations are dwindling. My grandparents kept bees when I was a child. When we started talking about how people get their food in the world, bees are the source. They’re the pollinators,” Barnard said. “Now that we’re homeowners and have an opportunity to contribute in a positive way, it was an easy decision for us to make.” Now, she said it’s a challenge they refuse to stop pursuing. “I would say bees are a science and an art form,” Kris Barnard said. “We’re hoping the hive will be successful and the bees will over-winter and produce honey.” This year, it looks like Coastside bees just might be bouncing back, at least a bit. It’s off to a strong start, said Raymond “Surferay” Wolfgramm. Dressed in Carhartt overalls and a bandana, the owner of the Norcal Honeybee Rescue is something of a honey bee hero whose tagline is, “Saving honey bees, one colony at a time.” “Our season started out really well,” he said on a recent afternoon as he checked a hive at his friends’ Half Moon Bay house. Some days, temperatures climbed to 70 degrees. “With that we had one of the biggest eucalyptus blooms, which makes good, light honey. The bees were just exploding,” he said. “It was like springtime for them in winter.” When not installing and maintaining hives or removing swarms and relocating bees to new homes, Wolfgramm also works to make sure local beekeepers have their best shot at providing safe havens for honey bees as a member of the 28

“IT CAN BE A LITTLE SHAKESPEAREAN, OR LIKE A TELENOVELA.” KRIS BARNARD, EL GRANADA BEEKEEPER

Beekeepers’ Guild of San Mateo County. It’s shown up at municipal meetings to call for ordinance reform to make beekeeping easier. Redwood City agreed to do so in 2016, and now Wolfgramm said the guild is turning its attention to Foster City and Burlingame. “We just hope to keep everything going, and going good,” Wolfgramm said. “We’re trying to let the population know how important bees are, and how they’re struggling.” Why are bees important? “Two out of three bites of food you eat come from the bees,” Wolfgramm said. “Cherries, watermelon — they all need pollination. If you like flowers, a lot of them need pollination, too.” Cattle diets also depend on the pollination that bees provide. Wolfgramm noted that California grows 90 percent of the world’s almonds. “We need 2 million bee colonies, just for the almonds of Central California,” he said. The difference they make is striking, even on a small scale, the Barnards said. “We have a property with a standard El Granada lot that’s not very big, but has tons of trees,” Kris Barnard said. “Fruit yield is easily doubled, which is fun when we have fresh pears, peaches and cherries around — apricots, pluots, figs, raspberries, blackberries,” Brendan Barnard said. “We kind of have a fruit salad house,” Kris Barnard said. Not to mention, the honey carries its own benefits. El Granada beekeeper Michelle Cleave said that’s it’s long been used for its antiseptic and medicinal properties, and that it’s even relieved her allergies. She eats a teaspoon every day. “Bees collect pollen from local flora and over time you build up a tolerance. It’s the same concept as shots, where you’re exposing yourself to it,” she explained. “Like a spoonful a day helps the medicine go down.” But honey tastes much better than the average medicine. “You get honey all over and it’s fun to lick your fingers,” she said. “It’s delicious.” Learn more about beekeeping at sanmateobeeguild.org.

O

ngoing conflict persists across the globe today. War dominates newspaper headlines and television news. While the Coastside has never seen any active combat, it was once the site of a topsecret training operation that prepared men and women to respond to any attack by the Japanese immediately following the military strike on Pearl Harbor in 1941. In a 13-acre slice of land — a portion of which is home to the Montara Water and Sanitary District today — an anti-aircraft training center once dominated the bluff. It housed nearly 50 permanent structures and more than 1,500 men. Over the course of its use, thousands of Navy sailors and merchant marines were trained on some of the latest technology in anti-aircraft weapons systems. “It opened immediately after Pearl Harbor,” said JQ Oeswein a Moss Beach resident who leads tours around the former war relics. It started with a couple guns, Oeswein said, but escalated quickly and was in full operation within about a year. The first four guns were constructed on the Point Montara lighthouse property and some of the gun mounts can still be seen there today, Oeswein said. In anticipation of potential attack, Oeswein says that the military took over the Coastside — even moving into private homes. For that first year, all eyes were turned to the ocean as the military intently monitored the waters for any Japanese approach. A bunker, easily observed by motorists on Devil’s Slide today, served as a lookout point. If lookouts there spotted anything suspicious they could alert military stationed at Fort Funston and the Marin Headlands. A Coastside resident of 30 years, Oeswein was always fascinated by history but never really explored the World War II era until roughly eight years ago. He lives on Sierra Street, which borders a large lot where some of the training facilities were located. Oeswein heard rumors that a school had been housed in one of the old military structures and decided to do some more digging. Old Navy maps allowed Oeswein to plot out the whole site and lead tours. The school was bounded by Carlos Street, Sierra Street, 16th Street and Lincoln Street and closed in 1962. After the war, a lot of the buildings were put out to bid and many sold for salvage. One of the old buildings became the original Farallone View Elementary School. After the school relocated to its current home on Le Conte Avenue, the space was used at least once by local firefighters. One time, a controlled burn got out of control and took down the structure. Half Moon Bay History Association President Dave Cresson was living near the Moss Beach Distillery at the time and says he remembers that day only too well.

“I looked out my bedroom window and saw this great, big black pillar of smoke going up in the air,” Cresson said. “The controlled burn turned out not to be controllable.” Visitors who have stopped by the beach and bluff tops by the Moss Beach Distillery today will notice a pillar-shaped concrete monument of sorts out at sea. Cresson says that many rumors surround the history of that structure, including one theory that suggested that bootleggers used it as a place to hook their ropes and pull bootleg whiskey away from the ships. Cresson says that the pillar was used as a sighting target during World War II, Oeswein says it was used simply as a place to hang a red flag to alert others to military practice in progress. “They were firing those guns directly over the ocean,” Oeswein said. “(This was) just a marker to warn ships and planes to stay away.” Farther south, “Camp Miramar” set

up shop between the ocean and where Mirada Road is today. Cresson details in his book “Turning Points” that several pre-fabricated structures crafted in the 1930s by the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps were used to set up a temporary barracks, mess hall and other buildings that had the potential to house nearly 500 soldiers. Women played a key role in the war efforts here and elsewhere. Many served as target-towing pilots who would drag kites behind the planes for gunners to use as targets. Cresson says it is rumored that many of the women didn’t enjoy the job too much. “They thought the gunners were shooting at the planes instead of the kites,” Cresson said. “How much of that is true and how much of that is exaggeration, I don’t know.” Later on, drones would be used in target practice. In fact, advanced

technology was a bit of a hallmark of the local war efforts here. A radio transmitter built into the heads of the bullets permitted the shells to blow up close to the planes when shot as far as 20 miles away, said Oeswein. “That is something that really stunned the Japanese,” Oeswein said. “They didn’t have anything like that.” Analog computers were used during the war efforts. They helped soldiers simulate different situations and learn exactly how to point a gun. Live fire training quickly became a fact of life for Coastside residents in the early 1940s and, much like the fog horn at Pillar Point Harbor, the noise took some getting used to. “The guns were going constantly,” Oeswein said. “When the war ended in 1945 people couldn’t sleep because it was too quiet.” HALF MOON BAY

H

ave you ever fantasized about having your own greenhouse and experiencing the joys of seedlings, propagation and growing your own starts for the garden? It can be a wonderful place to putter and escape while surrounded by plants, the smell of good soil and the miracles of nature. I recently helped research and select three greenhouses for the Master Gardeners’ new Gardening Education Center (at the San Mateo Event Center), and in the process learned a lot about issues to address when considering the perfect greenhouse. SPACE: Greenhouses come in all sizes. Depending on size and placement, you may need a building permit. In Half Moon Bay, for example, a building permit is needed for any structure larger than 120 square feet. But you can do a lot with a space that size! LOCATION: Look for the sunniest available spot. Check the passage of the sun during the day, paying particular attention to any shadows that buildings, trees and fences cast in both the summer and winter. Erect the greenhouse where there in a minimum amount of shade.

FOUNDATION: Greenhouses must be placed on a level area, and a foundation is necessary except for the smallest and lightest greenhouses. A pressure-treated wood foundation should suffice for a mediumsized greenhouse (e.g., 10 by 12 feet). Generally, 4-by-6-inch timbers along with 12- to 16-inch ground screws (to keep the greenhouse from blowing away) will provide enough stability. Concrete is another option, especially for larger structures. ASSEMBLY: Some greenhouses come fully assembled, in which case you should make sure that there are no immovable barriers, such as a narrow passageway, preventing movement of a large structure to your chosen location. Most greenhouses, however, come in a kit, which means that you will have to assemble the kit yourself or have help lined up.

plants. Likewise, a nearby electrical outlet can eliminate the need for a long extension cord to service greenhouse lights, heating pads or fans. ACCESSORIES: Tables to hold your plants can be made of wood, metal or polycarbonate. Other useful accessories include plant trays, a thermometer, grow lights, misters, heaters and fans. Solar-operated vents and fans are great options to provide essential ventilation. Gardening has long been one of our nation’s top leisure-time activities, and the garden-to-table movement appeals to all ages. With a good greenhouse your family can enjoy the whole process of growing the foods and flowers you like best. HALF MOON BAY Shirley Melnicoe is a University of California master gardener.

TYPES OF STRUCTURES: There are many choices and configurations to choose from. You can attach a greenhouse to your home or build it to be freestanding. Frames can be constructed from either wood or metal. While wood can be more attractive, it requires higher maintenance, such as periodic sanding and staining or painting. The roof and sides can be tempered safety glass, twin-wall polycarbonate, or various plastics. Double-walled polycarbonate provides good insulation and is lightweight and easy to handle. It comes clear or bronze tinted, which provides shading — a useful quality for the roof. For harsher climates, three- to fiveply polycarbonate is recommended. Combinations of materials are also available. Glass is definitely hotter and more breakable, but quite attractive. Because it is clear, a glass roof will likely need to be whitewashed to keep the heat under control. Keep in mind, though, that on very warm days all types of roofs may need to be covered with a shade cloth to cool interior temperature.

Lucy Breed: unknown Age: 6 years old “We got Lucy at the Sacramento animal shelter when she was 8 weeks old, just a puppy,” recalls her owner, El Granada’s Fred Crowder. “We wanted a female so we got her. Lucy came with a bit of mystery. “We didn’t know what she was,” Crowder says. “They said her mother was part corgi. I jokingly call her chupacabra because she looks like a critter. One time I took her into the vet and the tech was taking notes on her and asked her breed and I said chupacabra and she said, ‘Oh that’s interesting, I’ve never heard of that breed before.’ I said, ‘Well, actually that is a Mexican, mythic, alien creature.’” Whatever the breed, Lucy has a way of blending in with her environment. “We’ll be taking hikes and walks and I’ll be like, ‘Where the hell is the dog?’ Then she moves and there she is.” She is definitely an alpha female. Crowder says Lucy runs the doggy daycare. “She has a lot of ideas about how things are supposed to be. She comes and tells me when it’s time for bed and gets me up in the morning as well,” he said. That said, Lucy is a lover, not a fighter. She enjoys other dogs … and their toys! 52
