Eshoo buys
time for
Hangar
By Casey Weiss
T
here may be hope for Hangar One after
all, city officials say, after Congresswoman Anna Eshoo negotiated with
the Navy to delay plans to strip the structure
for 30 days.
The Navy, NASA Ames and the city of
Mountain View have been debating the
future of Hangar One for years. But discussions were at a relative standstill over the past
several weeks after Navy officials announced
they had resolved once and for all to strip
the historic structure’s toxic siding away and
leave a bare skeleton behind — an option
preservationists said would spell the end for
the hangar. Before its discussions with Eshoo,
the Navy reportedly was trying to enter into
a contract by the end of the month to remove
the siding.

HE’S NOT ARMSTRONG, BUT MOUNTAIN VIEW’S DAVID TROUSDALE
IS RACKING UP PODIUM FINISHES OF HIS OWN
By Colin Becht
E
arlier this summer, a cancer survivor
cycled past the competition and finished high on the podium. No, not
Lance Armstrong. This cyclist was Mountain View resident David Trousdale, and his
podium finish was not at the Tour de France,
but the California Senior Games.
Though Armstrong’s third place finish
enthralled many, Trousdale placed much
higher on his podium. He placed first in the
5-kilometer time trial and in the 20K and 40K
races, and second in the 10K time trial.
Now Trousdale, 65, is bringing those medals to Palo Alto to compete in the 2009 Summer National Senior Games.
Despite the obvious comparison to another
winning cyclist who survived cancer, Trous-

dale said Armstrong is not his idol.
“Everybody knows about Lance, but I like

to follow other riders,” he said.
Trousdale said Fabian Cancellara was a
rider he admired and studied. Still, Trousdale’s wife, Sherry Symington, is fond of
calling her husband “The Lance Armstrong
of Mountain View.”
Trousdale said he has been riding bicycles
his whole life, but it was not until three years
ago that he began cycling competitively. In
fact, competitive cycling was not even Trousdale’s first choice. He initially was going to
train to be a sprinter, but his knees began
hurting. A sports physician suggested he try
cycling, and that was the launch of his cycling
career.
Since switching to cycling, Trousdale has
been a dedicated competitor. He has competed in the California Senior Games for the
past three years and has also participated in

everal hundred local civic leaders,
including more than two dozen

Caltrain
promises to
reduce horn
volume
Advocates:
Teen center
would reduce
city’s crime
By Sean Howell
By Casey Weiss
F
ollowing an outcry from
Peninsula residents who
live near the tracks, Caltrain plans to reduce the volume of its locomotives’ horns
back to a level residents are
accustomed to, a Caltrain
spokesperson said last Friday.
She estimated the change will
take two to three weeks to
implement.
In mid-July, the rail agency
had moved the horns from
the undercarriage of the cars
to the top to allow them to
make the proper sequence of
sounds, according to spokesperson Christine Dunn. The
horns will remain at the tops
of the trains, but the rail agency
plans to install a regulator that
would allow it to “finely tune”
the volume, Dunn said.
The horns will sound in four
distinct blows, rather than one
continuous honk, according to
Dunn.
People who live along the
tracks have inundated the rail
agency with letters and calls,
sent angry missives to city
council members, and spilled
their frustration in online
forums. Some have speculated that Caltrain increased the
volume in response to several
people who have committed
suicide on the tracks in recent
months. Others alleged that
Caltrain was trying to sway
public opinion in favor of the
high-speed rail system, which
would not necessitate a horn
because of the grade separations.
Dunn denied both claims,
saying that this was simply a
matter of complying with federal regulations.
Engineers are required to
sound the horn a quarter-mile
before each grade crossing —
places where a street crosses
the tracks — or if they see
someone on or close to the
tracks, Dunn said.

Vivek Kumar gives stem cells for the second time.
Local man gives the ultimate gift
VIVEK KUMAR TWICE SAVED A STRANGER’S LIFE BY SHARING HIS STEM CELLS
By Casey Weiss
V
ivek Kumar knew nothing about the patient,
except she was a 38-yearold woman dying of leukemia,
when he decided to save her life
the first time.
The Mountain View resident
is part of a national registry, Be
the Match, which pairs patients
who suffer from leukemia or
other blood diseases with someone who has a matching human
leukocyte antigen — “a protein
found on the surface of cells
that are involved in the body’s
defense mechanism,” according
to the registry. These matching
antigens allow the participants
to donate either bone marrow
or stem cells, and ultimately
help save a life.
Kumar donated his stem cells
to the woman in 2008, and then
again recently, after her leukemia returned.
A 32-year-old native of India
who now works as a product marketing manager for a
local semiconductor company,
Kumar became involved with
the registry through the Asian
American Donor Program
(AADP), an East Bay nonprofit
which works to increase the
number of Asian Americans
and other minorities who sign
up on the registry. People can
only be matches for patients of
the same race.
He said there are relatively
few people of Asian descent on
ang violence and general
crime will be substantially
reduced if the city opens
a larger and better teen center —
that was the message put forth by a
group of youth and youth advocates
at a community meeting last week.
The city recently purchased Rock
Church, located on Escuela Avenue,
and members of Youth Motivated for Action and Involvement
(YMAI), part of the advocacy
group Peninsula Interfaith Action,
want to turn it into a teen center.
So they held a public meeting at St
Joseph Church on Thursday, July 30
to discuss the need for a teen center
in Mountain View.
At the meeting, several local teens,
including some who have been
involved with gangs and crime, said
a center would give youth a place to
hang out and a sense of belonging.
In effect, they said, it would keep
them off the streets.
“We are here today because we
have listened to our community
leaders of tomorrow and they need
a safe place today,” YMAI member
Diana Marin told the 50 community members who gathered at St
Joseph.
YMAI has been pushing for a
teen center for three years. Members of the group say the city’s current teen center, located on Escuela
Avenue next to the Senior Center, is
only open two evenings a week and

CHAMBER PROGRAM HELPS RESIDENTS DISCOVER WHAT MAKES CITY TICK

aura Blakely lived in
Mountain View for a
decade, but it wasn’t until
participating in Leadership
Mountain View that she really
got to know the city.
Each year Leadership Mountain View, a nonprofit run by
the Chamber of Commerce,
brings together several dozen
people who live or work in the
city to help them learn about
what makes Mountain View
function — from its City Hall
to its schools, businesses and nonprofits.
“I was interested
in learning more
about the city
and becoming a leader,” said
Blakely, who volunteers in the
elementary school district. “I
learned so much about how dif-
ferent agencies come together.”
LMV’s classes — which have
graduated council members,
school administrators, business
leaders and nonprofit directors —
span nearly two
decades now, and
next week is the deadline to
sign up for the program’s 20th
class. The milestone will be celebrated when this class gradu-
ates in the spring, and 500
alumni will reunite to celebrate
the 20th anniversary, said the
program’s current director,
Alicia Crank.
The approximately 30 participants in each class meet one
Friday a month for nine months
to become more acquainted
with the city and find ways to
get more involved.

the registry, although the number is growing.
“When people are looking for
a match this is their only hope,”
Kumar said of the registry. “How
often do I get a chance to save
someone’s life?”
When AADP started 20 years
ago, there were 123 registered
Asian-Americans and 300,000
registered Caucasians on Be the
Match, according to AADP executive director Carol Gillespie. Today
there are 7.4 million people registered worldwide, and 532,000 of
these are Asian-Americans.

Campaigning
Kumar first joined the registry
in 2001 after seeing an AADP
booth at an Indian charity race
at Shoreline Park. He had just
finished running, and decided
to give an antigen sample right
there.
To register, Gillespie said, participants need to fill out a consent form. Their cheeks are then
swabbed, and they are listed on
the registry.
There have been 20,000 stem cell
donations in the last 20 years in the
United States, Gillespie said.
“It’s like trying to find your
identical twin,” she said of finding
a match. “It’s very difficult.”
It took six years until Kumar
was matched as a donor. In the
meantime, he said, he had forgotten about the registry until he saw
a mass e-mail in April 2005 about
a 6-year-old boy in Michigan who
was dying of leukemia. Kumar
was so touched by the story that
he started trying to find matches
for the boy.
He held 20 drives in six weeks.
The boy found a match, but died
later that year. Kumar said he
was able to register someone else,
who also matched up with a sick
patient and donated.
“All that running around
helped,” Kumar said.
Because of his good work for the
group, Kumar was asked to be on
the board of advisors of AAPD.
The call
Kumar’s call finally came in
2007. There was a woman who
needed his stem cells to survive,
and Kumar donated for the first
time in 2008.
The program is confidential, and
the donor learns very little about
the patient. Kumar only knows
the age, gender and illness of the
women, whose life he has now
saved twice.
“I never thought about it twice,”
he said. “It was an honor.”
“He is giving because he is a
generous person,” Gillespie said.
“It’s quite amazing.”
“Not only has he given life once,
but twice,” she added.
To extract liquid marrow, a
needle is inserted into the pelvic
bone. The donor receives anesthesia, and may be sore in his or her
lower back for several days. The
bone marrow grows back in four
to six weeks, Gillespie said.
For stem cell removal, Kumar
received shots for five days leading
up to the procedure, in order to
boost “the stem cells produced and
move them into the blood stream,”
he said.
The shots gave Kumar some
flu-like symptoms, and he ached
a bit, but was able to control it
using Tylenol. He said he even
performed in a dance production
after receiving the shots.
After five days of shots, Kumar
was hooked up to a machine
which extracts blood and separates
the stem cells. The blood is then
returned to his body. It’s a six- to
eight-hour procedure, but a mostly
painless one, according to Kumar.
His wife sat with him, and he was
able to check his e-mail and play
with his phone.
“It is relatively inconvenient,”
Kumar said. “Besides (the fact that)
you get to save someone’s life.”

JING HUA WU ACCUSED OF TRIPLE MURDER AT
SANTA CLARA COMPANY LAST NOVEMBER
Bay City News
S
anta Clara County District Attorney Dolores Carr
announced last week that
she will not seek the death penalty against a Mountain View man
accused of killing three colleagues
at a Santa Clara semiconductor
company last fall.
Jing Hua Wu, 47, was charged
with three counts of murder, with
a special allegation on each count
that he personally used a firearm,
as well as a special circumstance
charge of killing multiple victims,
according to Deputy District Attorney Jeff Rosen.
On Nov. 14, 2008, Wu was fired
from his job as an engineer in
testing and production at SiPort
Inc., which makes chips for highdefinition radios.
He returned later that afternoon and shot three people: SiPort
CEO Sid Agrawal, 56, of Fremont;
vice president of operations Brian
Pugh, 47, of Los Altos; and human
resources manager Marilyn Lewis,
67, of San Jose.
If convicted of all charges, Wu
could face up to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The special circumstance charge
made Wu eligible for the death
penalty. However, after reviewing
witness statements and physical
evidence, and taking into account
input from the families of the three
victims, among other considerations, Carr decided not to seek the
death penalty.
“While this case involves the
murder of three innocent victims,
we took into consideration the
feelings of the victims’ families, the
defendant’s lack of criminal history
prior to the murders, and the likelihood of a jury returning a death
verdict against the defendant,” Carr
said in a statement released last
Thursday.
“Under these circumstances, a
sentence of life in prison without
the possibility of parole is an appropriate sentence,” she said.

Mountain View police have
arrested a man for allegedly
trying to light the back seat
of a police car on fire — the
very car in which he was
being detained — while police
searched his own car for illegal
drugs.
On Thursday, July 30, an
officer pulled over 21-yearold Christian Segarini of San
Mateo for a traffic violation
at the Highway 101 on-ramp
at Moffett Boulevard. His
passenger, 23-year-old Ricci
Wynne of San Mateo, was
holding “marijuana in plain
view,” said police spokesperson Liz Wylie.
Officers detained both of
the men in separate police cars
while they searched Segarini’s
vehicle. The men had not yet
been arrested, and were not
handcuffed, Wylie said.
While in the back seat,
Segarini tried to light the area
behind the seat on fire using a
lighter, Wylie said. There was
minor damage to the police
car.
He was arrested on charg-

MAN ROBS 7-ELEVEN
AT KNIFEPOINT
Mountain View police are
looking for a man who they say
used a knife to rob a 7-Eleven
store on Old Middlefield Road
last week.
According to spokesperson
Liz Wylie, the man entered the
7-Eleven, located at 1951 Old
Middlefield Road, at around
4 a.m. on Tuesday, July 28.
He brandished a knife and
demanded money from the
clerk, making off on foot with
a small amount of cash, Wylie
said.
The man is described as
Latino and in his 20s. He
is around 5-foot-5 and was
wearing all black, including
a hooded sweatshirt which
covered his face, Wylie said.
The case remains under
investigation. Anyone with
information is urged to call

does not offer enough services
for youth.
After buying the church last
month for $3.5 million, City
Council members said they could
use it as a second parking lot for
the Senior Center. They have not
ruled out other uses.
“I live 30 feet from the Senior
Center and I have never seen the
parking lot full,” Denise Olmos said
during the hour-long meeting.
Her brother Eddie Olmos, who
has been heading the campaign
for a teen center for the last three
and a half years, started the
meeting by asking community
members if they knew anyone
who had been involved in a
gang, or had been killed because
of gang-related activities. Most
of those present — children,
adults and seniors — raised their
hands.
Edwin Zuniga, a Los Altos
High School student, said YMAI
gave him a sense of belonging
and purpose, and helped him
change his life.
“I have a little sister and I don’t
want her to follow in my footsteps
going through gangs,” he said.
“It exposes people to how the
city works. This is a way for
people to see how they want to
become more involved,” Crank
said.
The program is a great way to
network, and many participants
stay in touch after the course.
This year’s class will kick things
off with a meeting at the Microsoft campus, where they will
participate in team-building
exercises.
“I made good friends in the
Police Department and the
library,” said Kathi Lilga, executive assistant to the elementary
school district superintendent.
“I highly encourage people to do
it.”
Later in the year, the group will
tour City Hall and listen to guest
speakers, mostly city employees,
during a forum at the library.
During another class, the Community School of Music and Arts
and KMVT, the local television
station, are on the agenda.
“Participants learn what kind
of opportunities are out there,”
Crank said. “Each time you
come, there will be a different
experience.”
The program costs $1,750, but
Crank said many businesses pay
for their employees to attend.
Both local school districts have
sent at least one employee a year
“I started changing when I first
joined this group. I realized how
much we needed a teen center.”
YMAI member Anna McMaster said that many of the city’s
crimes, such as auto theft and
burglary, are connected to gang
activity. Six of the 10 homicides
from 2000 to 2008 were gangrelated, she said.
The city and Police Department have some programs in
place for at-risk youth, McMaster
said, but “it wasn’t enough.”
No City Council members
attended the meeting, but Mayor
Margaret Abe-Koga sent a letter.
Abe-Koga told the Voice last
week that the council has not
made any decisions on how to
use the new property, and will
probably begin discussing the
issue this fall after members
return from summer recess. She
added that she supported the
purchase of the property and
that her “priority” is using it has
a teen center.
However, she said, the city is
still leasing the church to its congregation until June 2011, which
means teen activities there would
have to happen “during nonchurch hours.”

in the past. The nonprofit also
raises funds to help people who
have to pay out of pocket.
“We never want finances to be
an issue,” Crank said.
This is Crank’s first year as
program director, and besides
planning the 20-year reunion,
she hopes to implement new
activities, such as a mentoring
program pairing current participants with alumni.
“Someone who came through
the class several years ago had
different experiences than someone going through it this year,”
she said.
Crank said many cities have
similar programs, but Mountain
View’s is unique because of
NASA Ames and all the big businesses located here. She hopes to
capitalize on this, for example,
by organizing a “class trip” to
NASA.

HANGAR
Continued from page 1
Earlier this week, Eshoo sent
out a press release saying that after
meeting with Secretary of the Navy
Ray Mabus, he had agreed to “delay
any action for 30 days to determine
a mutually acceptable solution for
both NASA Ames and the city of
Mountain View.”
“Both the Secretary and the
Undersecretary understand the
history and significance of Hangar
One and are willing to examine

or let it slip back into mediocrity?
“People say a constitutional convention sounds like a great leap,
it’s a little bit scary, we could make
things worse. What I say is, if you
really want to be scared about
something you should be scared of
the status quo,” Wunderman said.
Backers, meeting last Friday at
Advanced Micro Devices in Sunnyvale, said they are creating a movement fueled by small donations
styled after the presidential campaign of Barack Obama.
They outlined a scenario in
which randomly selected citizens
reflecting California’s demographics would meet to address “systemic problems.” Discussion would
be confined to budget, election
reform, governance and the statelocal fiscal relationship.
Santa Clara County Assessor
Larry Stone told the group he has
“reluctantly concluded” a constitutional convention is the only way to
fix a state government responsive to
moneyed interests and loud voices
over sound public policy.
“We still have time to turn this
ship around from the iceberg,”
Stone said, calling for a complete
overhaul of the state’s tax structure,
education code and campaign
finance laws.

the Nevada Senior Games and the
Huntsman World Senior Games.
Trousdale trains for 10 to 12 hours
each week on his bike, in addition to
stretching and strength training. He
also combines his physical training
with a technological approach,
using computers and experimentation to improve his times.
“I have a very sophisticated bicycle computer that collects all kinds
of data from my bike, and then
I use that and study it to develop
my training — where my weaknesses are, where my strengths are,”
Trousdale said.
Trousdale uses his bicycle’s computer to measure the amount of
force he applies against the wind,
new avenues to facilitate its restoration and reuse,” Eshoo said in the
press release. “I am eager to move
forward with NASA and the Navy
so that together, we will find the
right solution.”
On Wednesday, city manager
Kevin Duggan applauded the development, though he remained cautiously optimistic.
“We view the delay as good. But
it is not a solution. What is critical
now is that a solution needs to be
reached,” he said. “The patient is
very much at risk.”
Duggan, who calls the hangar
an “iconic structure,” said the city
plans to join in the discussion and
“will get more involved if a contact
comes up.”
The more delay the better, he
added, because once arrangements
are made for re-covering the hangar
— arrangements which have been
elusive so far — the whole process
will be easier and less expensive
if it’s done right after the Navy
removes the toxic siding.
Last month, Mountain View City
Council members sent a letter to the
Navy saying that “the skin should
not be removed until a plan was in
“The money chase is perverting
our democracy,” Stone said.
While several speakers argued
that Proposition 13 has wreaked
havoc on the state in ways never
intended, Wunderman warned
against taking aim at the 1978 property-tax-cutting initiative, which
remains popular.
Only 17 percent of Californians
want to see it changed, according to
a poll taken last year by the Public
Policy Institute of California, Wunderman said.
“There’s a lot of opportunity to
work on the system we have without having to repeal Proposition
13,” he said.
Derek Cressman, western states
director for the good-government
group Common Cause, said a convention would be an opportunity to
fix system problems in a “package
deal” with fair tradeoffs rather than
a piecemeal approach.
Several argued that Proposition
13 and the two-thirds requirement
to pass a budget are essential protections against politicians who lack
long-term fiscal discipline.
The state’s budget catastrophe
was self-inflicted by legislators who
seized on 1990s surpluses to bind
the state to unsustainable payouts,
said Bob Hines of the Silicon Valley
Leadership Group.
Today’s “structural deficit” is
driven by cost-of-living adjustments in entitlement programs and
pension contributions, Hines said.
Supervisor Liz Kniss, who represents Mountain View in the Santa
Clara County Board of Supervisors,
said the initiative process has tied
the hands of legislators by creating
state obligations without identifying how they will be paid for.
“You can put any initiative on
the ballot you want and it doesn’t
have to have any indication of
where the money will come from,”
Kniss said. “Initiatives have shaped
the entire state budget to the point
now where (legislators) have very
little control over a very small
amount of money.”
Lawyer Andrew Giacomini of the
San Francisco firm Hanson Bridgett
outlined the “nuts and bolts” of calling a convention in 2011, including
a Sept. 25 deadline for submitting
language to state Attorney General
Jerry Brown before collecting 2 million signatures.
Repair California, an organization started by Wunderman, is
holding “town hall” meetings similar to last Friday’s gathering up and
down the state (the next meeting is
Tuesday, Aug. 11 in San Francisco).
Wunderman believes the state Legislature likely would be spurred to
action if Repair California’s efforts
are successful.
which he analyzes to improve his
aerodynamics. He said that 85
percent of a cyclist’s effort is fighting wind resistance. Thus, slight
improvements to his aerodynamics can greatly decrease his energy
exertion.
The 2009 National Senior Games,
now being held at Stanford, will
be Trousdale’s first, so he enters it
with two simple goals: “to have a
good time” and “to do my best.”
Trousdale said he has spent most of
his time training and has made his
top priority the 5K time trial.
“I’m hoping I do really well in the
5K. That’s where I’m really going to
go all-out,” he said.
Despite being 65 years old, Trousdale insists he has not reached his
prime in cycling yet.
“I’m improving,” he said. “I’m
told for this type of sport, endur-
ance sports, that it takes five years
to reach your prime.”
With three years of competitive
cycling under his belt, that would
put Trousdale at his prime in the
2011 National Senior Games.
“I seem to do personal bests each
time,” Trousdale said. “When I do
the same course, my times continue
to get better, so I don’t think I’ve
reached my prime yet.”
place to replace it,” Duggan said.
“We were concerned,” he said, that
“when the Navy made a contract, we
would be at a point of no return.”
Navy and NASA Ames representatives were not immediately available for comment.
Others who have closely watched
the debate over the hangar’s fate also
said they were happy with the Navy’s
decision to hold off for 30 days.
“It certainly looks encouraging,”
said Bob Moss, co-chair of the
Moffett Field Restoration Advisory
Board.
NASA inherited Moffett Field
from the Navy in 1993, but environmental cleanup of the site, including
the hangar, is still the Navy’s
responsibility. The Navy put a protective coating on the hangar’s
outer panels after dangerous PCBs
and other chemicals were found to
be leaching from the siding.
Although the coating has worked as
a stopgap measure, experts say the
hangar will eventually start releasing toxins once more.

VOICES FROM OUR WEB SITE
erhaps proving that its organization is nimble enough
to hear and respond to public concerns, Caltrain
announced last week that it will reduce the decibel level of horns on its locomotives running through the Peninsula
rail corridor.
Three weeks ago, the agency made the questionable decision
to move those horns from the bottom of its engines to the top,
thereby increasing the noise level of the trains as they moved
through intersections — and catching the ire of hundreds of
people living, working or traveling near the tracks.
The change brought about an outcry from residents so strong
that it prompted at least one city, Menlo Park, to issue a news
release explaining that the volume of the horns was out of their
control. Many residents said the additional noise was almost
unbearable.
But Caltrain heard the complaints, and said it will reduce
the volume of the horns back to the level of a few weeks ago,
which over the years has been accepted by most local residents.
A spokesperson said the change will take two to three weeks to
implement.
The agency said the horns originally were moved when it was
discovered during a routine safety inspection that they were not
producing the “distinct, separate, sequential blasts (tweet and
toot) that is required by federal regulations.”
At that point, residents found themselves caught in the netherworld of railroad bureaucracy over the arcane definitions of
a “tweet” and a “toot,” nomenclature likely dreamed up years
ago by an employee of the Federal Railroad Administration. No
federal inspector was involved in the decision to pump up the
volume, which had been at a lower level for nearly a decade.
Caltrain should never have bothered moving the horns in the
first place without first consulting the federal railroad agency
and at least notifying cities and residents in advance. In this,
the agency made a major error in judgment that, before this
episode is over, will have unnecessarily subjected thousands
of Peninsula residents to more than a month of over-the-top
tweets and toots.
Federal rules require trains to sound the horn one-quarter of
a mile before each of the 44 grade crossings on the Peninsula
route. With 50 trains or more making the round trip between
San Francisco and San Jose (and some going on to Gilroy), this
adds up to more than 4,000 “tweets and toots” every weekday.
We’re glad that, by reducing the horns to their prior decibel
levels, Caltrain still will be able to meet its federal guidelines
and maintain a required level of safety. In fact, some have questioned whether the trains actually need such high-powered
horns in the first place, especially since every intersection is
protected by crossing guards.
The answer to that question must come from the Federal
Railroad Administration, and it is unlikely to come soon. In
the meantime, those who live near the tracks can be thankful
that their concerns were heard.

ON THE INCREASE IN
VOLUME OF CALTRAIN’S
HORNS — AND THE
SUBSEQUENT OUTCRY
AND PROMISE TO REDUCE
THE VOLUME
“Train engineers are required
to sound their horns a quarter
mile before every grade crossing, of which there are 44 on the
Peninsula, including several in
Mountain View.”
Our country has lost its common sense. Some kook puts
something in his shoes that
fizzles and now everyone has to
remove their shoes to get on an
airplane. I hate to think what
would have happened if he had
put something in his shorts.
Yes, people get hit by trains but
this rule about the horns is just a
feel-good imposition on peoples’
lives. The rule by the way is that
the horn has to be sounded for
the complete quarter mile before
the intersection. So around here
they have to sound their horns
constantly.
There are no studies that I
am aware of that this rule has
any effect whatsoever on the
accident rate. This is analogous
to the ridiculous law against
the use of non-hands-free cell
phones in cars. There was a
study reported (recently) on PBS
news by the University of Utah
that it’s the act of talking that
distracts drivers, not holding
the phone to your ear. The law
has no effect on accident rates,
but cities like Mountain View
have used it as a great revenue
generator from fines.
curious, a resident of
the Cuesta Park neighborhood
Caltrain/SamTrans share an
800 number: (800) 660-4287
The horn volume and blowing
is excessive. Suicidal people do
not get hit and killed because
the horn wasn’t loud enough.
Ridiculous. All this macho hornblowing is one of those only-inAmerica things. Other countries
where they run an order of magnitude more trains all over the
place have much quieter horns
or bells and they use them very
sparingly if at all at grade crossings. The lights and bells and
lowered gates are enough to let
anyone who cares known that a
train is coming.
Imagine if cars and trucks were
required to blow their horns when
passing through intersections on
a green light in order to “warn”
cross-traffic and pedestrians that
they’re coming through. Preposterous, right? Well just like a
simple red traffic light is considered fair and adequate warning
at vehicle intersections, why
shouldn’t a lowered gate across
the road with flashing lights and
ringing bells not be considered
more than fair and adequate
warning of an oncoming train?
Reality Check, a resident of
another community
I am very concerned over the
conflicting and inaccurate explanations being used by Caltrain
for apparent excuses:
Continued on next page

Community Health
Education Programs
Continued from previous page
Originally the horn noise was
blamed on moving the horn to
the roof. it now transpires that
was a little bit a of a half truth
since the real reason was the
horn did not work correctly with
a longer pipe so the pressure was
increased as a rather incompetent work around.
Secondly, Caltrain keeps parroting the 44 grade crossing it
has to blow at. Has anyone actually noticed that Caltrain blows
the horn entering and leaving
Mountain View from the south?
For what grade crossing might
they misdirect blame on the
government for? While the 44
grade crossings may be true, this
appears to be a complete misdirection of the facts.
Thirdly, in press statements
they claim the horn must be
sounded a quarter mile before
all of these crossings. In reality
it is illegal to sound it more than
a quarter mile ahead. Sloppy
grammar? It would be but this is
just what Caltrain does.
I’m all for safety and proper
horn noise but this safety program appears to be bungled by
incompetence and half truths.
Malcom, a resident of
the N. Whisman neighborhood
Thank you to everyone who
complained to Caltrain. Hopefully this will bring the volume
back to a reasonable level, at
least to what it was before they
increased the volume.

FOR THREE DECADES, THE BOARDWALK HAS BEEN
LOS ALTOS’ COOL, CLASSIC BURGER JOINT
By Andrew MacLeod Doerschuk
I
JAMES TENSUAN
A burger and fries at The Boardwalk.
DINNER BY THE MOVIES AT SHORELINE’S
Pizzeria Venti
t’s telling that, on my first visit
to The Boardwalk, I drove
right past it and had to double
back. Buried within a nondescript stretch of El Camino Real
between San Antonio Road and
Ortega Avenue, The Boardwalk,
despite its enormous sign, blends
into the office building where the
restaurant resides, which itself
disappears among the other office
parks that line the block.
It was equally significant to
find the parking lot crowded
with cars every time I ate there.
With no advertising and an
undesirable location, how can it
attract so many people willing to
stand in a long line for a burger,
fries and a cold beer?
Easy. It’s all done by word of
mouth, an approach that has
worked well for the Tougas family, the joint’s owners 1975.
If The Boardwalk — with
its dark interior, stained glass,
eccentric wire sculptures, big
wooden booths and burgers sizzling on the grill — is reminiscent of The Oasis in Menlo Park
or The Garret in Campbell, that’s
because the Tougas family owns
them, too. They know a good
thing when they see one.
And the best thing about The
Boardwalk is its utter lack of preContinued on next page

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Preheat olive
oil on high heat. To the hot oil add garlic and crushed red
pepper - cook until translucent. Reduce heat to medium

minutes and the add shrimp, tossing to thoroughly coat
shrimp. Continue cooking until shrimp is cooked and
tomatoes soften and give up their juices about 5 minutes.
While sauce is cooking, add pasta to boiling water and

tense. For example, it has no wait
staff; you fetch your own napkins,
silverware and bottle of ketchup.
Tables remain un-bussed a bit
longer than you might expect.
And yet every employee was
exceptionally friendly and seemed
genuinely happy. So we cued up
next to the long wooden bar and
squinted at the hand-painted
menu hovering over the open
kitchen across the room, waiting
for our turn to order.
We started with the escargot
bourguignon and fois gras —
oops, wrong restaurant review!
Instead we dove into a supersized basket of onion rings
($2.46) brimming with real
hand-battered golden O’s. Warm
to the touch but not lip-scorchingly so, ours offered the sugary
zing of pungent sweet onion
slices quick-fried in crispy corn
batter. Accompanied by cooling ranch dressing, they were
delicately oily and biting without
being overcooked.
In an effort to offset the guilt
we’d feel after devouring the
fatty food yet to come, we tried a
Caesar salad ($4.25), and found
no surprises: chopped lettuce,
croutons, slivered parmesan
cheese and a dressing that gladly
didn’t skimp on anchovies. Next

time, though, I’ll ask them to go
lighter on the dressing, as our
lettuce was drenched.
I’ll also steer clear of the soup of
the day if it happens to be French
onion ($2.85 cup/$4.25 bowl). It
had much going for it — thick
with sweet, translucent onion
slices in a dark beefy broth —
but neither croutons nor gruyere
melted on top, and was so salty I
couldn’t finish it. In fact, almost
every dish we tried was very salty.
Low-sodium dieters pay heed.
Hamburger fans should consider Boardwalk’s burger of the
month. We took the plunge with
the jalapeno burger ($7.25), a
generously sized homemade patty
on a bun dressed with an onion
slice and lettuce (you finish off
the fixin’s at the condiment bar
in the middle of the dining room,
but don’t expect much more than
ketchup and a couple different
kinds of mustard). However, the
magic was in the meat, which
was juicy, medium done and
riddled with chopped jalapenos
that enlivened every bite.
I’ve long said that I’ve never
had a cheese steak on the West
Coast that can match those served
within Philadelphia city limits.
And after trying The Boardwalk’s
version ($7.75), I still haven’t —
but it was darned close. Their chef
overstuffs a soft French roll with
juicy, finely diced beef, provolone
cheese and caramelized sliced
onions that were tumbled on the
grill into a delicious goop. It was
simple and irresistible.
The Boardwalk scored even
bigger points with its small pizza
with pepperoni and black olives
($12.95). Again, while they didn’t
reinvent the wheel here, they
did assemble a fine pie with a
medium-thick crust that was
crunchy instead of chewy, piled
with melted cheese oozing over
veggies and meat, and a yummy
spicy-sweet tomato sauce that
elicited a slight pucker. Even better, it still tasted great reheated
the next day — the true test.
The place was packed last Saturday, hosting an all-girls water
polo team and their parents. The
party faced their chairs toward
the Giants game screaming from
wide-screen TVs behind the bar.
Hollers went up whenever a runner scored or batter struck out.
The kids were having a ball as the
parents unwound.
And then it hit me: The
Boardwalk isn’t a restaurant. It’s
a community dining room
where you can let your hair
down at the end (or the middle)
of the day. You feel like you’re at
home with family, and for that
alone, it’s a treasure.

NMOVIEREVIEWS
(500) DAYS OF
SUMMER ---1/2
(Century 16) The playful Generation
Y story “(500) Days of Summer” goes
against the romantic-comedy grain. Boy
meets girl. Boy thinks he understands
girl. Boy oh boy. The film takes the male
point of view; that’s not to say that Zooey Deschanel doesn’t get a good role.
But we follow the psychological roller
coaster of Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt).
When he strikes up an office romance
with Deschanel’s Summer, we’ve been
warned. Not only have we seen Tom
distraught from their eventual breakup,
but the film’s narrator has told us, “You
should know up front: This is not a
love story.” The film’s brilliant gimmick
is to flip through the 500 days of the
relationship as if they were in a Rolodex. With the added resonance of this
technique and very funny observational
humor, screenwriters Scott Neustadter
and Michael H. Weber add insight to
the old “boy meets girl” formula. Rated
PG-13 for sexual material and language. One hour, 35 minutes. — P.C.
FUNNY PEOPLE--(Century 16, Century 20) Focused on
one man’s journey through the psychological perils of show-biz, “Funny”
spins a yarn of mega-famous comedian
George Simmons (Adam Sandler) who’s
at the top of his game when he is diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. A
wake-up call, to be sure, and George is
clueless about where to turn next. He
begins by turning back to his roots and
doing small sets at L.A.’s Improv Club,
giving a sober look-see to the young
talent coming up the ranks. One of
those fledgling funnymen is Ira Wright
(Seth Rogen), who George taps to write
some jokes for his next big gig. One gag
leads to another and Ira finds himself
as George’s personal assistant: working
material, fetching drinks and talking his
boss to sleep in his cavernous megamansion. Cars, girls, private jets and
cash; it’s a heady but lonely existence.
Wanting to right the wrongs of his
past, George requests audiences with
snubbed friends and family members,
and re-connects with ex-love Laura
(Leslie Mann). Rated: R for language,
crude humor and sexuality. Two hours,
20 minutes. — J.A.
THE HANGOVER ---1/2
(Century 16, Century 20) Doug Billings
(Justin Bartha) wants simply to have fun
with his friends before tying the knot.
Teacher Phil Wenneck (Bradley) is a
smart rabble-rouser. Alan Garner (Zach
Galifianakis) is a well-meaning misfit.
And Stu Price (Ed Helms) has allowed an
abusive girlfriend to quash him. Doug,
Phil, Alan and Stu drive to Las Vegas for

up the next morning in a trashed hotel
room with no memory of the previous
night. They also discover two unusual
guests in the room: a baby boy and a
Bengal tiger. Plus, Doug is nowhere to

to piece together the night’s events.
Rated: R for drug material, pervasive
language, sexual content and nudity. 1
hour, 40 minutes. — T.H.
HARRY POTTER
AND THE HALF-BLOOD
PRINCE ---1/2
(Century 16, Century 20) Based on the
penultimate novel of J.K. Rowling’s
seven-novel series, director David Yates’
second “Harry Potter” film makes Rowling’s characters and environs yet richer
and deeper with (coming of) age. Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore
(Michael Gambon) focuses on preparing
Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) for the task
of defeating evil. The key to defeating
dark wizard Voldemort is a memory
locked away in the mind of his former
Potions professor Horace Slughorn (Jim
Broadbent, brilliant here), who reluctantly agrees to return to his post at
Hogwarts. As Harry plies for Slughorn’s
secret, the school is thick with romantic
entanglements. Harry’s best friends
Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron
(Rupert Grint) are meant for each other,
though they haven’t yet acknowledged
what’s apparent to Harry; meanwhile,
Harry pines for Ron’s sister Ginny (Bonnie Wright). Rated PG for scary images,
some violence, language and mild sensuality. Two hours, 33 minutes. — P.C.
THE HURT
LOCKER ---1/2
(CineArts) Films about the Iraq War
have shown box-office hoodoo, but
director Kathryn Bigelow locates in “The
Hurt Locker” both the expected and
unexpected drama of an Army bomb
squad in 2004 Baghdad.
Bigelow immediately establishes her
action dynamics and inhospitable setting in a gripping opening sequence of
Bravo Company going about its work of
locating, sizing up and defusing IEDs.
One member of the company will not
survive, which opens the door for Staff
Sgt. William James (Jeremy Renner) to
join the team. Despite his precise skill,
he’s exasperatingly cavalier, and his
disregard of safety protocols can be
taken as no-nonsense or pure nonsense,
depending on one’s point of view. To
James’ shaken colleagues, their new
commander is himself a ticking time
bomb. Rated R for language and war
violence. Two hours, 1 minute. — P.C.
ICE AGE: DAWN OF
THE DINOSAURS --1/2
(Century 16, Century 20) By bounding
happily into outright science fiction, the
third film in the “Ice Age” series will
work just fine on wide-eyed tots and
weary parents glad to take a seat for 94
minutes. Of course, unless you have kids
or are a kid, there’s really no imperative
to see this CGI-animated adventure.
It’s not bad, but it’s also faintly derivative at every turn. This time, Manny the
Mammoth and his mate, Ellie (voiced by
Ray Romano and Queen Latifah), are
expecting a child. Saber-toothed tiger
Diego (Denis Leary) is feeling his age
when he tries to chase down gazelles.
And sloth Sid (John Leguizamo) happens
upon three dinosaur eggs to occupy
him. When he becomes mama to three
baby T. rexes, he buys everyone he
knows a lot of trouble. Rated: PG for
some mild rude humor and peril. 1
hour, 34 minutes. — P.C.
IN THE LOOP---1/2
(Aquarius) Politics, clearly, are comedy
gold (just ask Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert), and yet smart political
comedies seem to arrive at theaters
only once or twice a decade. Thanks to
“In the Loop,” it’s again time to think
and laugh at the same time. One part
“Dr. Strangelove” and two parts “The
Office,” “In the Loop” is a shaky-cam
satire that savages government movers and shakers on both sides of the
Atlantic. The plot concerns the gung-ho
secret committee plotting a war in the
Middle East on behalf of the U.S. Presi-
dent and U.K. Prime Minister, and those
trying to block the war with strategic
leaks and other creative maneuvers.
With a bite that’s going to leave a mark,
“In the Loop” is the year’s best comedy
to date. Not MPAA rated. One hour, 49
minutes. — P.C.
THE PROPOSAL --(Century 16, Century 20) Sandra Bullock
and Ryan Reynolds share a spark and
serve up laughs despite a predictable
storyline and a few senseless scenarios.
Uptight book editor Margaret Tate (Bullock) runs her New York office with all
the compassion of a coyote in a chicken
coop. Her assistant Andrew (Reynolds)
does her bidding, despite urging from
his family to quit. When Margaret faces
deportation to her native Canada over
a neglected visa application, she blackmails Andrew to marry her so she can
stay in New York. As Margaret gets to
know Andrew’s energetic clan — especially his mother (Mary Steenburgen)
and grandmother (White) — she begins
to shed her icy exterior and look at
Andrew as much more than just a lattefetching flunky. Rated: PG-13 for sexual
content, nudity and language. 1 hour,
47 minutes. — T.H.
UP ---(Century 16, Century 20) Senior citizen
Carl Fredricksen (voice of Edward Asner)
wasn’t always gruff. He was a boy eager
for adventure. He was a loyal husband
to his wife, Ellie. He was happy. Following Ellie’s death, crews demolished the
neighborhood around Carl. Now he sits
on his porch, and even young wilderness explorer Russell (voice of Jordan
Nagai) can’t lift him from his mood.
When the threat of being placed in a
nursing home confronts Carl, he decides
to do something drastic. He attaches
balloons to the house’s chimney and
sets off for Paradise Falls, a mysterious locale in South America that Ellie
longed to visit. When Carl realizes he
has an accidental stowaway in Russell,
his plans for a quiet escape are thrown
askew. Hilarious, heartwarming and
beautifully animated, “Up” is one of the
year’s first truly exceptional films. Rated:
PG for some peril and action. 1 hour,
36 minutes. — T.H.
