‘Ripping off taxpayers … at students’ expense’

Limits sought for charters

2 bills seek crackdown on for-profit firms’ ability to operate charter schools in state

By Jessica Calefati


SACRAMENTO — Vowing to fight public school profiteer- ing, Democratic state lawmak- ers have introduced legislation that would either block or se- riously limit for-profit compa-

nies’ ability to operate charter schools in California. The two proposals seek to ad- dress a growing concern among legislators that Wall Street- traded companies managing some of the state’s charters are raking in mountains of state aid while providing students a poor

education. Democratic Assemblyman Kevin McCarty of Sacramento authored one of the measures, Assembly Bill 406, because he said for-profit firms haven’t proved they can manage high- achieving schools and shouldn’t be allowed to fail any longer on taxpayers’ dime — even if the Trump administration thinks otherwise. “When we allow private com- panies to run public schools, we invite them to focus on share-

holders and profit margins instead of on children and stu- dent achievement,” McCarty said in an interview. “Profiting off the public good is bad public policy.” He says he first learned of the problem last year when a San Jose Mercury News inves- tigation cited state data show- ing that K12 Inc.— the biggest for-profit firm of its kind in the state — reaps tens of millions of taxpayer dollars annually while operating online academies

that graduate fewer than half of their high school students. By the state’s calculation, about half of the 15,000 Cali- fornia students enrolled in the company’s schools are not profi- cient in reading and only a third are proficient in math — levels below statewide averages. The investigation also noted that kids who spend as little as one minute during a school day logged onto K12’s software may

Hanh, 90, famed for Vietnam War photos

His work documented perspective of South Vietnamese army

By Tatiana Sanchez


SAN JOSE — One of Nguyen Ngoc Hanh’s most iconic im- ages depicts a young war widow clutching her late husband’s dog tags — a photograph rec- ognized by almost every South Vietnamese. Hanh, who died April 11 at age 90 in a San Jose nursing home, documented the war in his homeland for the South Vietnamese government and became an internationally re- nowned Vietnam War photog- rapher by capturing battle vic- tories and GI grit in portraits aimed at lifting the morale of the troops and their families on the home front. His photographs were less known than those of contem- poraries such as Nick Ut of The Associated Press, who cap- tured the image of a screaming girl hit by napalm that became one of the defining moments of the war. But Hanh’s work rep- resented the perspective of the South Vietnamese army, whose involvement in the war often was ignored by Western media. Hanh was an officer in the Army of the Republic of Viet- nam who rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel. His duty was to portray the heroism, cour- age and sacrifices of his fellow soldiers. “He was certainly a photo-

‘Everything doesn’t have to be a pharmaceutical’

Oakland-based nonprofit eases suffering with free products

Shelter Project has provided cannabis oils to some 400 cancer patients across California the past two years

By Tammerlin Drummond


OAKLAND — After Alex Lee had surgery for brain can- cer in 2013, he had to take a che- motherapy capsule that made him nauseous. Ron Gershoni, a

college buddy who was just get- ting into the cannabis extrac- tion business, brought him a big

jar of cannabis oil. “As soon as I took the pill, I

would feel nauseous,” said Lee,

a 37-year-old San Francisco

resident who works in technol-

ogy sales. “I would immediately do a dab (a marijuana oil extract that users vaporize and inhale) or several dabs to make me feel better. The relief from the nau- sea was instantaneous.” Since then, Gershoni’s Oak- land-based Jetty Extracts has gone on to create the Shelter Project, a program that pro- vides free cannabis oils to can-

cer patients and those in remission. Lee, who com- pleted a year of chemo in March 2015 and is now can- cer-free, was the first re- cipient. Since its launch two years ago, the Shelter Proj- ect has served 400 patients across California, Gershoni said. He and partners Mat- thew Lee and Nate Fergu- son wanted to find a way to give back to the medi- cal marijuana community, which had led the fight for legalization. “At first, we were just giving free product to Alex,” Gershoni said. “Then Matt went on a surfing trip and had a Zen moment coming out of the water. He said we should start an actual nonprofit where we’re reg- istering people and put it on our website. It took off from there.” At the time, he said, Jetty Extracts was one of only five companies in the state with compassionate cannabis oil donation programs. You must have a valid California medical marijuana identi- fication card and a cancer diagnosis to sign up. A few people who didn’t have can- cer slipped through, but the company said that hasn’t happened often. Oakland resident Kathy Chambliss had breast can- cer surgery in September, followed by chemotherapy in January. She discovered the Shelter Project through co-workers who also had gone through cancer treat- ment. She got a medical marijuana card and signed

up. “What I do is email them and let them know which one works best for me,” Chambliss said. “It relaxes me and helps me rest bet- ter. Everything doesn’t have to be a pharmaceutical.” The Shelter Project is run out of Jetty Extracts’ plant, tucked away in an industrial area in East Oak- land. The company uses CO2 to extract cannabis oil from plant buds for use in vaporizers, among other methods. The plant buds

can later be ingested. Workers hand-pack small packets bearing the Shelter Project logo with prefilled vape cartridges and other items, which are then delivered to patients. Shelter Project manager Lindsey Friedman said the patients decide what type of cannabis they want. Some have done research or got- ten advice from health pro- fessionals. “We provide them with the resources to get edu- cated on what types of can- nabis there are and the dif- ferent ways to consume it,” she said. “After they decide what’s right for them, then we make a plan for medi- cine.” The company recently began making supposi-

tories exclusively for its Shelter Project patients be- cause there were so many requests for them. When people use suppositories, 80 percent of the cannabinoids get absorbed into the body, far more than when vap- ing or ingesting cannabis, Friedman said. “It goes straight to the affected area and doesn’t get you psychoactively high,” Friedman said. “So a lot of people who never used cannabis and were always against it feel comfortable with the suppositories.” Harborside Health Cen- ter in Oakland, the largest dispensary in the country, has its own compassionate care program for low-in- come patients. The com- pany recently donated some

flowers high in CBD — one of the cannabinoids in the cannabis plant that doesn’t make a person high — to the Shelter Project and refers its cancer patients there. “It’s more product, and it’s also different because theirs is cannabis oil, and we provide flowers,” said Harborside ombuds man- ager Danielle Barber. Gershoni said he wants to expand the Shelter Proj- ect and will be looking to ask more businesses to do- nate. But for now, Jetty Ex- tracts is covering the costs of a program that many cancer patients have come to rely on. Titania Numa, 76, a busi- ness owner in unincorpo- rated Contra Costa County, was diagnosed with mul- tiple myeloma in 2008. She suffers from numbness in her left fingers and an ir- reversible condition where her right eye has swollen in its socket. She signed up for the Shelter Project six months ago. Numa said sometimes her (oil) cartridges get stuck, but whenever she has problems, the Shelter Project staff are always re- sponsive. “I wake up, and I can’t go back to sleep,” Numa said. “That’s when the va- por comes in handy. I feel so grateful, I can’t even begin to tell you, that this exists.”

have been counted as “present” in records used to calculate the amount

of funding the schools get from the state. And last year, the company reached

a $168.5 million settlement

with the state over claims

it had done just that.

A spokesman for K12

declined to comment on the legislation. California’s effort to rein in for-profit charters is at odds with the Trump administration, whose top education official, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, has long been a supporter of the very for-profit companies these bills aim to stifle. When DeVos’ hus- band, Dick, ran for gover- nor of Michigan in 2006, he disclosed that they were early investors in K12. And as chairwoman of the American Federa-

tion for Children, a school choice advocacy group, Betsy DeVos repeatedly called for expanding families’ access to online “virtual” schools. McCarty’s bill would bar charter schools oper- ated by for-profit compa- nies or management or- ganizations, and it could block companies like K12 from running schools in this state.

It would also impact

three online schools man- aged by a for-profit com- pany called Connections Academy whose reading test scores exceed the state average, according to state education data. The measure re- sembles legislation that stalled in the final days of last year’s legislative session after the Califor- nia Teachers Association and the California Char- ter Schools Association failed to reach agreement on amendments. Virginia-based K12 now faces a federal securi- ties fraud lawsuit filed by shareholders as well. Seek- ing to dismiss the case, the company has argued in court filings that the plain-

tiffs “fall far short” of their burden to prove the com- plaint is justified. Still, in the months since Trump’s election, K12’s stock price has al- most doubled. “These companies are ripping off taxpayers and making a lot of money at students’ expense,” Mc-

Carty said. “Enough.” The California Charter

Schools Associationshares

McCarty’s concerns, but the powerful advocacy group disagrees with his approach. Fearing that overbroad language in AB 406 could impact routine contract- ing and send successful charter schools’ opera- tions into disarray, the organization is sponsoring an alternative, Senate Bill


Authored by Demo- cratic state Sen. Steve Glazer of Orinda, the measure seeks to create a “firewall” between for- profit contractors and the nonprofit charter schools they serve. SB 806 would prohibit the companies from select- ing a school’s board mem- bers, approving its budget or supervising any of its teachers. It would also force all charter schools to comply with existing open meeting and open record laws. “We don’t think it’s appropriate to prohibit charter schools from con-

tracting with (for-profit companies). We want to create some nuance around when that sort of contracting is appropri- ate,” said Colin Miller, a senior adviser to the asso- ciation. Lawmakers will con- sider the measures for the first time in education policy committee hearings scheduled for later this month and early May.

Is crating a dog a form of cruelty?

DEAR JOAN: My daughter bought a Great Dane puppy as a birthday present for her husband almost two years ago. He still chews on whatever odd shoe or stuffed animal is lying around and will bark across the fence at the neighbor’s dog. My daughter is worried about the chewing and has said: “We can’t trust him.” Thus, they leave him in a crate in the laundry room

from the time they leave for work to the time they get home, late afternoon. He also has to sleep in a crate at night, which is in their bedroom. They bought


at night, which is in their bedroom. They bought JOAN MORRIS ANIMAL LIFE the largest crate


the largest crate made, but this is a

Great Dane — he can turn around, barely, but can’t fully stand.

I feel so bad for the dog.

It’s like the poor thing is left in a cramped jail cell. My daughter seems to think that dogs like being crated and it makes them feel safe. I think it’s cruel.

Whos right? Robert Jones San Jose

DEAR ROBERT: Dog crat-

ing has its supporters and detractors. There’s no doubt it’s a useful training tool, especially for puppies being housebroken. It also can be used to teach dogs not to chew on things. It should never be used as a form of punishment or for the mere convenience of the pet owner. Dogs spend about 16 hours a day sleeping, and they often do feel more comfortable and at ease in a cozy, enclosed spaces. Those who study domestic dogs, wild dogs and wolves, calling it “denning.” If the dog has no bad associations with the crate, they are happy to go inside to sleep, feeling protected and safe. Dogs never should be left in their crates for more than half the day, or longer than overnight. I think your daughter is pushing the time limit on her dog, and I hope that when she and her husband get home, they let

the dog out and interact with it, walking and playing. Dogs are social creatures and need the company of other dogs and humans.

If they are left too long in

a crate, they can develop

“cage rage,” and become de- pressed, anxious or fearful.

The size of the crate matters, too. It should be large enough for the dog to turn around, but it also needs to be tall enough that the dog can stand without stooping. In addition to the

overall isolation in a crate, dogs need exercise so spending too long in a crate is not good for them.

I recognize the difficulty

of dealing with a dog that can’t be trusted, however, the dog shouldn’t be pun- ished or caged. It should be trained. When the dog is in its crate during the day, your daughter should give him a toy that contains treats inside that the dog has to work to get out. This will not only pro- vide him with mental and physical stimulation, it also will teach him that chewing on certain things is reward- ing, chewing on others is not. When he’s out of the crate, your daughter and son-in-law should watch him and if he starts chew- ing on something he’s not supposed to, gently divert his attention with some- thing that is OK to chew. Once the dog has earned your daughter’s trust, she should let the dog decide when to go into the crate. In the meantime, she needs to invest in a slightly taller crate.

Kirk Dougherty as Rodolfo and Sylvia Lee as Mimi deliver powerful performances in Opera San Jose’s new production of “La Bohème” at the California Theatre through the end of the month.

‘La Boheme’ still relevant for our times

Updated production about doomed lovers trapped in poverty

By Georgia Rowe


There’s a moment in Act III of “La Bohème” when the young lovers Mimi and Rodolfo, meet- ing outside an inn on a freezing winter night, sing longingly about the warmth of April. It’s just a brief episode, but it’s an uncommonly poignant one, and at Opera San Jose’s vibrant open- ing night performance of Puccini’s opera Saturday at the California The- atre, it seemed to radiate warmth as only this ever- green masterpiece can. For operagoers who have experienced “Bo- hème” numerous times — and that includes pretty much anyone who attends live opera on a regular ba- sis — the 1896 melodrama about struggling young artists enduring a Pari- sian winter can be easy to dismiss. But when the piece is

performed with the kind of vocal assurance and dramatic flair that was in evidence throughout Sat- urday’s opening, it’s a won- derful night in the theater — and a bracing reminder that our own young artists are still struggling to sur- vive in freezing garrets, and the divide between rich and poor is growing wider than ever. This revival, directed by Michael Shell and conducted by Joseph Marcheso, caps a strong Opera San Jose season that included Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor,” Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” and Kevin Puts’ “Silent Night,” and it boasts a sturdy, faithful staging and a youthful, fully engaged cast. Saturday, the quartet of singers at the center of the opera was especially viva- cious, beginning with the Mimi of Sylvia Lee, whose lithe, pure-toned soprano projected the consumptive seamstress’s girlish sweet- ness in silvery, forthright phrasing (Lee repeats the performance on April 20 and 30; soprano Julie Ad- ams will sing the role April 23 and 28).

OPERA SAN JOSE Presents Puccini’s “La Boheme” When: through April 30 Where: California Theatre, San Jose Tickets: $56-$176;



As Mimi’s lover, the poet Rodolfo, resident tenor Kirk Dougherty

made his finest company outing to date. Singing with power, focus and elegant musical line, he delivered his Act I aria, “Che gelida manina,” with ardor and generous, ring- ing tone. Baritone Matthew Hanscom sounded im- pressively robust through- out the evening, offering a likable, big-hearted char- acterization as Rodolfo’s painter friend, Marcello. The production’s surprise entry was soprano Van- essa Becerra, who made her company debut as an opulent-voiced Musetta in the Café Momus scene.

As the philosopher Col-

line, bass-baritone Colin Ramsey gave an assured performance of the Act IV coat aria. Baritone Brian

James Myer brought energy and depth to the musician Schaunard. Baritone Carl King was amusing as the landlord, Benoit, and bass-baritone Vagarsh Martirosyan was Musetta’s elderly sugar daddy, Alcindoro. The Op- era San Jose Chorus made well-calibrated contribu- tions in the Act II crowd scenes. There are a few un- usual touches in Shell’s production, which unfolds on effective sets by Kim A. Tolman, with lighting by Pamila Z. Gray and costumes by Alina Bokov- ikova. Act I opens on Christ- mas Eve, and Shell moves it forward a few years, to the first Christmas Eve af- ter World War I. Colline is blind — perhaps from an injury sustained in the war — and he and Schaunard seem to suggest a closer relationship than we see in most productions of this opera. No matter — this is still the “La Bohème” op- era fans love, with all of Puccini’s warmth, heart- ache and enduring music intact.


Police arrest 23 in violent protests

Stabbing among 11 injuries as Trump supporters, opponents clash in park

By Rick Hurd


BERKELEY — The ar- rest total from Saturday’s violent clash between pro- testers supporting or op- posing President Donald Trump grew to 23 on Sun- day when Alameda County

Sheriff’s Office officials re- leased the names of those who were nabbed. Police late Saturday originally announced 20 arrests and 11 injuries after fighting broke out at Mar- tin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, where Trump backers and members of the so-called alt-right movement held a “free speech” rally. Opponents of the movement, calling themselves anti-fascists, also were there among the crowd of about 200. The two sides wasted no time in going after each other with fists, sticks, flagpoles and worse. Eleven people were in- jured, including one per- son who was stabbed, po- lice said. According to the Sher- iff’s Office arrest log, seven people were arrested on suspicion of committing felonies, and 16 others were arrested on suspicion of committing misdemean- ors. Berkeley police did not return phone calls Sunday, but the Sheriff’s Office con- firmed the arrest log.

Michael Hornsby, 27; Willie Morning, 59; Geo- vanni Ramirez, 32; Tahtan- erriah Sessomshowell, 26; Carlos Barbarossa, 29; Luke Dennis, 36; and Rob- ert Peete, 52, face felony charges, according to the log. “The charges include arrests for assault with a deadly weapon and sev- eral other felony assaults,” police said in an announce- ment Saturday evening, adding that more arrests would likely be pursued after video and social me- dia posts were reviewed. Police in riot gear were on hand to try to keep the peace, with lim- ited success. During the melee, loud explosions were heard in the crowd, immediately followed by fistfights. BART closed its downtown Berkeley sta- tion during the protests. In its Saturday state- ment, police said officers tried to protect people and their free speech rights — despite organizers’ lack of a permit — by prohibiting potential weapons, limiting park entry and exit, and sharing citation and arrest risks for rule violations. They put up a plastic barri- cade in an attempt to keep the opposing sides apart and collected anything that could be used as a weapon. Police had banned metal pipes, baseball or softball

bats, lumber or wood of any size, poles, bricks, rocks, glass bottles, pepper spray and other objects. Despite their efforts, police said officers con- fiscated pepper and bear spray, knives and mace, an ax handle and a concrete- filled can at Saturday’s

protest, and that city staff cleaning the park before the rally found a replica gun. Saturday’s protest fol- lowed a series of demon- strations — both violent and nonviolent — that have swept the country since Trump took office in January.

A March 4 rally and

counter-protest in Berke- ley, planned by several of the same groups as those who announced this one,

also resulted in several in- juries and arrests.

In February, a sched-

uled appearance by former Breitbart News editor and

provocateur Milo Yian- nopoulos at UC Berkeley was canceled after agita- tors who infiltrated a large crowd of protesters on campus threw rocks, broke windows and set fires out- side the student union building and throughout downtown Berkeley. Some downtown businesses boarded up windows in ad- vance of Saturday’s protest as a precaution. And Berkeley will be tested again: According to the Daily Cal newspaper, conservativefirebrandAnn Coulter has been invited by the College Republicans and BridgeCal to speak on

campus later this month. Anyone with photos or video that could help iden- tify law-breakers may send them to Berkeley police by going to http://bit.ly/ berkvideo.

Two critical after fire at motel

Unit at Casa Linda Motel badly damaged in the explosion

By Eric Kurhi


SAN JOSE — Two peo- ple were critically injured in an explosion at a Monterey Road motel early Sunday that’s being investigated as a crime scene, according to fire officials. One unit at the Casa Linda Motel at 1669 Mon- terey Road was badly dam- aged in the blast, said fire Capt. Mike Van Elgort, with the inside looking “like it had a flashover in there” and a window blown out. “Fire investigators are checking for origin and cause,” Van Elgort said, “but police are investigat- ing and it is considered sus- picious.” There was no further information immediately available about the two adults injured in the blast, who were both taken to lo- cal hospitals. The explosion was first reported at 12:27 a.m., and a second alarm was quickly sounded because of accounts coming in. But arriving firefighters were able to quickly knock down the blaze and no other units were affected, although they were evacuated while inspectors checked the building’s structure for damage. Another fire early Sun- day caused significant dam- age to a Wienerschnitzel restaurant on the 2800 block of Story Road. While the cause is under investi- gation, Van Elgort said it appears to be accidental.


Man surrenders after theft of football

By Ramona Giwargis


MILPITAS — Police have arrested a man in con- nection with a stolen foot- ball signed by Hall of Fame football player Jerry Rice and auctioned at a charity event. San Jose resident Pat- rick Van Lam, 45, was caught on video after a live auction April 9 at the Koi Palace restaurant in Milpi- tas. Once Lam realized his image from the video was released to local media, he surrendered to detectives on Saturday, said Milpitas Police Sgt. Steven Fox. Lam returned the foot- ball, police said, and was booked into Santa Clara County main jail on bur- glary and grand theft. The football was auc- tioned for $3,500 to Amy Fu. The theft happened when Fu left the football unat- tended at the restaurant’s front desk to take a photo, police said. Two suspects were seen grabbing the ball and taking off. The suspects were diners unassociated with the fundraising event. Officers are searching for other “persons of interest.” The auction raised money to benefit the Prince of Peace Children’s Home in Tianjin, which funds sur- gery and medical care for orphans with special needs. Anyone with any informa- tion regarding the suspects or persons of interest is asked to call the Milpitas Police De- partment at 408-586-2400.

about noon,” said Mikey
Robles, who works at the in-
spection station searching
for invasive mussels at An-
derson Lake County Park.
“but with this weather, we
didn’t see too much.”
Steve Anderson, a fore-
caster with the National
Weather Service, said more
of the same can be expected
for much of the Bay Area
until midweek.
“It’s just one storm, but it
will bring showery weather
through about Tuesday be-
fore we start to dry out and
warm up,” Anderson said.
“Everyone has an equal
chance of catching one of
the heavier downpours —
it’s impossible to say where
those will happen.”
But Anderson said it’s
going to be mostly light
showers, causing “no antici-
pated problems at all.”
Meanwhile, the record
for the wettest water year
for the Northern Sierra fell
on Thursday, when storms
raised the bar above the
“It’s just one
storm, but it will
bring showery
weather through
about Tuesday.”
— Steve Anderson,
old high of 88.5 inches, set
in the 1982-1983 season. It
currently sits at 90.2 inches
and rising.
Back at Anderson Reser-
voir, the water level reached
a milestone of its own when
it dropped to 68 percent
capacity midafternoon Sun-
day despite the rain.
That’s the first time
it has gotten to that level
since it crested the spillway
in February in what’s been
called a harbinger of the
Coyote Creek flooding that
came three days later.
The Santa Clara Valley
Water District is required
to keep the lake at that
lower level because of seis-
mic concerns, and a release
pipe was still blasting water
out on Sunday.
Ed McGettigan, who lives
in Morgan Hill and hikes up
to the reservoir every week,
said it was amazing how
fast the lake filled up.
“There’s an island out
there that pops up when the
water is low,” he said. “And
it was still low in January,
then it went to the top in
just a few weeks.”
While Easter weekend
didn’t bring the anticipated
boating boon to Anderson
Lake, Anderson, the fore-
caster, said just wait until
next weekend — no rain in
sight, and temperatures in
the 70s and 80s.
Tamara Clark, spokes-
woman for Santa Clara
County Parks, said she’s
heard a lot of buzz from
boaters — they’re eager to
get back onto waters that
after five years of drought
had been considerably less
conducive to fishing and
Saturday marked the
start of boating season at
Coyote Lake and Stevens
Creek Reservoir; Anderson
opened up April 1.
“They’re excited, the
ones from this area and be-
yond,” she said. “It’s been
so long since we’ve seen this
amount of water.”

Making a splash

Canines take leap at dog show

By Ellen Garrison

The Sacramento Bee

Australian shepherd Dylan barked while staring fixedly at the orange toy held by his owner, Geor- gia Livell-Hower, as she moved down the launch pad. As she threw the toy over the water, Dylan sprinted down the dock and launched himself in pursuit of the toy, landing with a splash. Dylan was a top con- tender in the North Amer- ica Diving Dogs competi- tion held outside of the Sacramento Dog Show at Cal Expo on Sunday. Inside the pavilions, thousands of dogs competed over four days, culminating in Sun- day’s event. Other than the sporty diving dogs and barn hunt competitions held outside, there were obedience competitions and conformation compe- titions, which judge how closely a dog meets the American Kennel Club’s

standards for the breed. Dylan was at the show for the diving competition. Livell-Hower occasionally shows him in obedience shows, but he’s mostly a performance dog, mean- ing he participates in sport competitions. “It’s his favorite thing,” Livell-Hower said. “When we parked, he saw them putting up the dock and he wouldn’t shut up. I had to close all the blinds (in my RV).” The North America Div- ing Dogs competition was new this year at the dog show, with all of the equip- ment brought by Lise Ann Strum and her husband, Scott Dike. “We’re always looking for new things to add to the show,” said promoter Rich Vida. “(Diving dogs) draw quite a crowd.” The diving pool looks like a wider and shorter lane from a swimming pool for people, but there’s a long turf dock leading up

to the edge so the dogs can work up momentum. Strum got involved with North America Diving Dogs when her Belgian Malinois, Vhoebe, jumped almost 25 feet on her first time off the dock. “We started doing it as a sport and then we started doing it as a busi- ness,” Strum said. “We had no idea (this sport existed). This dog has taken us on an adventure.” For the last three years, Strum and Dike have taken the mobile diving dock to American Kennel Club dog shows in the western United States. Titles won on the dock are recognized by the AKC, but a dog doesn’t have to be part of the club to par- ticipate. The Sacramento Ken- nel Club’s dog show is al- most 100 years old. It be- gan as part of the state fair before growing to include specialty clubs and events such as dock diving.

Menlo Park

Man dies in RV fire caused by power cord

By Ramona Giwargis


MENLO PARK — A 52- year-old man died Sunday morning when his recre- ational vehicle caught fire, an incident the city’s fire chief called tragic. The fire was reported about 5:55 a.m. at 3190 Park Lane in North Fair Oaks, an unincorporated area of San Mateo County. Fire crews from Menlo Park and Redwood City found smoke coming from an RV parked at the Park Lane address, said Menlo Park Fire Pro- tection District Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman. The RV was loaded with “an extreme amount of stor- age,” but firefighters even- tually worked their way to the back of the vehicle. Af- ter extinguishing the blaze, Schapelhouman said, crews

“Sometimes we find people living in a way where they power or heat things that create problems. It’s tragic.”

— Harold Schapelhouman, fire chief, Menlo Park Fire Protection District

found a man unconscious in the back of the vehicle. Fire officials performed CPR, but the man was in full cardiac arrest and unresponsive. He was taken by ambulance to Stanford Hospital, where he later died. Schapelhouman said Menlo Park fire investiga- tors determined a pinched

extension cord running through the driver’s side door caused the fire. “The cord had become frayed over time and that was the cause of the fire,” Schapelhouman said. “It’s not the way you should power an RV, but it appears he was living in there.” As Bay Area housing costs skyrocket, the fire chief said, he’s seen people living in a variety of unsafe situations. “These days we find people living in sheds, base- ment and attics — the Bay Area is a booming place and housing is expensive,” he said. “And sometimes we find people living in a way where they power or heat things that create problems. It’s tragic.”

graphic genius,” said his- torian Jean Libby, a friend of Hanh’s who lives in Palo Alto. Libby, 76, said the power of Hanh’s photo- graphs was in his distinct and intimate portraits. “When you have a por- trait done by a master pho- tographer, it’s very special,” she said. “His close-up work is recognizable. I can see something online and I can recognize it as his.” At age 10, Hanh was taken by French troops from a Catholic orphanage in Ha Dong, outside Hanoi, according to Libby. The troops a year later took him to France, where he was ed- ucated in Catholic schools. He returned to his home- land in 1946, when Vietnam was still a French colony. About a year later, he secretly joined a commu- nist youth group as part of the Vietnamese resistance. But when he was asked to kill a French family of five to prove his loyalty to Viet- namese communist leader Ho Chi Minh, Hanh hid them instead after listening to their pleas. After the Vietnamese defeated the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1954, Hanh joined the South Vietnam- ese army and stayed in the military until North Viet- namese tanks rolled into Saigon in April 1975. Rather than fleeing with other of- ficers, he took photos of the South Vietnamese soldiers left behind, according to Libby. Hanh’s pictures were soon confiscated by the new

learned English with the help of co-workers. His visual career also took on a new life when he began teaching photogra- phy to local youth. It was one of his greatest passions, according to Tam Nguyen, a San Jose city councilman. “He always had a smile on his face. He was very humble, simple and ap- proachable,” Nguyen said. “That’s why he had a lot of students. They all loved him so much.” Nguyen said Hanh put his soul into his work. “It’s a sad loss because he was one of a few of the pi- oneers who helped establish the art of photography for South Vietnam,” Nguyen said. Hanh spent much of his postwar life photographing mountains, streams and bridges. “Mountains may erode, rivers may run dry, ” he once said. “The sky and the moon may change, but I’ll

Slow recovery in San Joaquin Valley

For some, drought lingers

Many people must still use water stored in tanks in their yard

By Scott Smith

Associated Press

HANFORD — Knee- high tufts of grass dot the streets of Hardwick, a ru- ral neighborhood with a few dozen homes hemmed in by vineyards and walnut and almond orchards in California’s agriculture- rich San Joaquin Valley. Nearby, the Kings River — swollen with rainwater and Sierra Nevada snow- melt — meanders through fields. Water is abundant in the river but it may not last. Despite winter storms that have turned much of California’s parched land- scape to vibrant green, the drought has yet to loosen its grip on thousands of residents in the valley. Many people must still use water stored in large tanks in their yard to wash dishes and bathe. Scientists at Stanford University and NASA say excessive pumping of wells during the drought has tapped out some under- ground sources of water that will never recover. At the height of the drought, nearly 2,400 wells dried up, affecting 12,000 people, state officials said. The drought emergency remains in effect in Kings, Fresno, Tulare and Tu- olumne counties, even after one of California’s wettest winters in years prompted officials to declare an end to the historic, five-year dry spell in nearly all of the nation’s most populous state. David Miguel relies on water from a large, black emergency tank located just steps from the front door of his mobile home. A water delivery truck tops it off every few weeks. “You can take a bath with it, do dishes — no problem,” said Miguel, a 64-year-old retired farm hand who was raised on his

family’s long-gone dairy operation in Hardwick. “I wouldn’t drink it.” Miguel and his neighbor survive on the trucked- in water and deliveries of bottled drinking water. They live in the last two Hardwick homes awaiting a state grant to hook into a reliable water main. Miguel doesn’t know when his home will get con- nected to the new 470-foot community well outside the county fire station, but he anticipates a $50 monthly water bill — more than it costs to run his own well. Miguel laughed when asked what he thinks about Gov. Jerry Brown’s re- cent declaration that the drought is over for most of California. “Oh, is that so?” he joked. Keeping the emergency declaration in place in a few areas allows officials to prolong efforts to find per- manent water supplies for desperate residents. In parts of the San Joa- quin Valley, underground aquifers — layers of earth saturated by water — col- lapsed from over-pump- ing during years of dry weather, according to scientists at Stanford and NASA who studied satel- lite imagery to measure sinking land. They say layers of clay soil have compacted, per- manently reducing natural aquifer storage capacity. Throughout the San Joa- quin Valley, the situation has left roughly 900 homes relying on storage tanks for residential water.

Emergency water tanks for residents have cost the state nearly $28 million since 2014, with more than half in Tulare County. Callsforhelphaveslowed significantly, said Susan Atkins of Self-Help Enter- prises, a nonprofit organiza- tion that helps residents get tanks and navigate govern- ment bureaucracy. “But they’re still com- ing in,” she said about the calls. In Hardwick, which has no sidewalks or street- lights, residents say their wells began drying up after farmers on three sides of the community dug deep wells to irrigate their or- chards during the drought, when water from rivers and canals was scarce. Resident Alvin Lea said his 120-foot well that was drilled in the 1960s dried up, costing him $17,000 for

a new one that was more

than 100 feet deeper. Lea, 77, a retired me-

chanic, keeps his swim- ming pool full for his great- grandchildren to play in during scorching summer days. He raises 200 exotic birds, which also need to drink, he said, tipping back the brim of his hat to peer at them through a wire mesh enclosure. Randy Herman, a long- distance trucker with a family, says it’s obvious to him that his community is

a long way from rebound-

ing from drought. “You got tanks, you got water bottles,” Herman said. “I don’t think the

drought’s over. It’s going

to take a long time.”

Divorced woman feeling lonely

DEAR AMY: I have been divorced for two years now. I said that I would never get married again, and I still feel that way. But I miss my ex-husband. I

think we are better as friends. I felt like I was wearing the pants AND the skirt in the relationship and during our marriage.

AND the skirt in the relationship and during our marriage. ASK AMY AMY DICKINSON of your



of your marriage. And now you continue to carry the burden of your divorce. The best way to heal from the trauma of divorce

is to feel your authentic feelings, and then find ways to re- lease them. If you are stuck in this tough in-between space, you’ll need help and

support from a counselor, spiritual practice or cre- ative outlet or by nurturing

relationships with people who will hold onto you through this. Don’t expect

others to understand this, but ask them to be there for you while you learn to cope with your new reality.

Please, make an effort not to isolate yourself, and be screened for depression. Divorce is one of the most challenging life events to recover from. I hope you

will focus on your personal healing, but don’t look for your ex to provide it.

I don’t know how to

move on, or if I should move on.

I wonder if I should

continue to be friends with my ex-husband.

I have to constantly pull

information out of him. He doesn’t share his feelings un- til I make mention of mine.

I have isolated myself

from basically everyone because they don’t under- stand why I am depressed about my divorce. Should I move on?

Lonely Lady

DEAR LONELY: Life is nothing but a series of op- portunities to move toward, move through and move on. Yes, you should move on. It is not necessary to leave the relationship with your ex, but it IS necessary to emotionally separate from him. According to you, you carried the entire burden

DEAR AMY: I am 13 years younger than my husband, which means I am only six years older than his oldest child. I have a great relation- ship with all of the children, their spouses, and nine grandchildren. When I was a child, my

mother made me write

thank-you notes. I hated it.

I am now a dedicated note

writer and I understand why it is important to acknowledge a gift. My grandchildren do not send thank-you notes. I would take a text of thanks

or a phone call. I don’t want to stir up

a hornet’s nest, but I also want my grandchildren to know the courtesy of thank-you notes. Should

I ask my husband to say


Young Grandma

DEAR GRANDMA: You should enlist them to help you to feel acknowledged. You cannot insist that these parents force their children to put pen to paper and write thank-you notes, because this is basically try-

ing to force them to be differ- ent parents than they are. You can ask the parents, “Hey, could you do me a favor and have your child shoot me a quick text or

a little video when they

receive something from me — that way I’ll know that it landed in their hands.”
