Locals help Ronald McDonald House expand
By Kate Daly
Special to the Almanac
A
dedicated group of local
donors, board members
and volunteers is pitching in to help double the size
of Ronald McDonald House
at Stanford, where families of
patients at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital stay.
Construction is underway to
add a new building that will
enable the organization to serve
more families and patients like
6-year-old Nevaeh Moses, who
last November finally received
the kidney transplant she had
needed for a year.
For most of that time, she
and her twin sister and younger
brother shared a room at the Ronald McDonald House with their
mother, April Moses. Ms. Moses
says she loved being there because
the residents are going through
experiences similar to her own.
“I’ve made some of my best
friends there,” she says, including a woman she calls “her new
mother.”
To be closer to that woman,
the Moseses plan to move from
Reno to Las Vegas when Nevaeh
is done with treatment. Right
now “home” is a studio apartment in Mountain View. The
twins are attending Escondido
Elementary School at Stanford.
The family had to move out
of Ronald McDonald House at
520 Sand Hill Road when the
new building expansion started
next door. The construction has
stirred up too much dust and
spores for some of the immunesuppressed patients to stay at the
current facility. Instead they are
living in apartments in Mountain View and hotels in San
Carlos and Belmont.
A 52,000-square-foot addition
to Ronald McDonald House is
expected to open in a year. Since
groundbreaking last July, construction is progressing on time,
with the underground parking
and basement in place and the
three above-ground floors taking shape.
The 40,000-square-foot current house, with 47 guest rooms,
is slated for remodeling. The two
buildings will provide 123 guest
rooms, making this the biggest
of 337 Ronald McDonald houses
worldwide.
Bob McIntire of Menlo Park,
CEO of Nova Partners, a construction management and real
estate development service firm,
is volunteering his time as construction manager for the project.
Annette Eros, chief executive
officer of Ronald McDonald
House at Stanford, says the
larger facility will help meet
growing demand. Due to medical advances, doctors at Lucile
Packard Children’s Hospital
attract and treat more serious
cases. Also, the hospital is adding 100 beds by 2017.
The house, which turned
away about 40 families a night
in 2014, is open to families of
patients, 18 and under, who are
being treated at the hospital and
reside at least 50 miles from the
hospital. The average stay at the
house in 2014 was 34 days, Ms.
Eros says. About 70 percent of
patients are from California.
So far, $31.6 million has been
raised toward a fundraising goal
of $40.5 million, which includes
adding to an endowment to
cover operating costs.
A series of private fundraising events have been held,
such as one last summer at the
Woodside home of Laurie Kraus
Lacob, a member of the organization’s board of directors. The
public phase is now underway.

transplant.
the board and plans “to try to
appeal to more philanthropic
corporate giving.” McDonald’s
Corp. provides about 10 percent
of the operational budget. Otherwise the house is primarily
reliant on individual donors.
The new complex will include
a common kitchen, dining room,
children’s activity rooms, a media
and business center, laundry room,
spa area for free haircuts and massages, a meditation garden, and
playground, as well as administrative offices and conference rooms.
A day pass room will offer a
place for local and outpatient
families to take a nap or shower.
Melody Mainville estimates
she and her 7-year-old son Elijah
have stayed at Ronald McDonald House “40 times off and on
for the last four years,” ever since
he was diagnosed with stage
four neuroblastoma.
They stayed in the area for two
years during Elijah’s cancer treatments, and when he went into
remission, he returned home to
Tuolumne, California, where her
husband works as a machinist
and their older son goes to school.
Now into his third relapse, Elijah is being home-schooled while
he is back at Stanford receiving
chemotherapy, one week on, and
two weeks off. When he’s having
treatments, his mother says, she
tries to stay at Ronald McDonald
House because “it feels like home
away from home.” She likes the
playroom where Elijah can hang
out and the warm volunteers.
The Mainvilles’ insurance helps
pay for his stays. In general, insurance covers $30 to $40 of the $134
daily room cost. Families are
asked to pay $10 a night, and about
30 percent do, Ms. Eros says.
Ms. Eros anticipates adding
staff when the complex is complete. In addition, there will be
a need for more volunteers than
the 150 or so people who currently help out each week.
Diane Claerbout of Stanford has
been giving free weekly massages
at Ronald McDonald House for
eight years. She is on the lookout
for another volunteer with just
the right touch with families. “We
really do make a difference to help
them relax,” she says. “It is the
most stressful thing to have something wrong with your child.”

Grant funds tutoring program for at-risk youth in Belle Haven, EPA
Thanks to a three-year $885,000
federal grant, San Mateo County
is launching an effort to combat
truancy and boost graduation
rates for Belle Haven and East
Palo Alto young people.
Starting this spring, 80 participants in a program called “Students With Amazing Goals” will
work on recovering high school
credits and receive mentoring,
tutoring and support beyond
that offered by a more traditional
curriculum, said county spokesperson Michelle Durand.
The program will operate out of
a former community day school
at 763 Green St. in East Palo Alto.
The site is already occupied by
the organizations One East Palo
Alto and Live in Peace, which
teach a variety of life skills and
offer recreational and educational
opportunities for local youth.
High school graduation rates
for East Palo Alto students hover
around 50 percent, attendance
rates fall far short of the Sequoia
Union High School District
average, and suspension rates
are 300 percent higher, according to the San Mateo County
Office of Education.
“We know that when an at-risk
youth finishes high school and
goes to college or into vocational
training, the experience can
be life-changing,” said Deputy
County Manager Mike Callagy.
Using 10 program areas ranging from athletics to substance
abuse, the “Amazing Goals”
program aims to reduce truancy
by 75 percent for middle and
high school students on probation and drop the rate on their
non-probationary at-risk counterparts by 50 percent.
“Imagine having the opportunity to attend college when
you never thought you would or
being diverted from the judicial
system to a positive outcome,”
said East Palo Alto Mayor Lisa
Yarborough-Gauthier.

Panel talk: How climate
change affects local birds
By Dave Boyce
Almanac Staff Writer
E
very morning, songbirds
greet the sun with a dawn
chorus. Might this timeless phenomenon be changing
as greenhouse gases accumulate
in the atmosphere and affect the
climate? Can anything be done?
These questions intrigue Portola Valley residents Brook Coffee and Kristi Patterson, who
have arranged a two-hour panel
discussion on the topic. The free
event, open to the public, starts
at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April
15, in the Portola Valley Community Hall at 765 Portola Road.
On the panel will be Terry L.
Root, a senior fellow at Stanford
University’s Woods Institute
for the Environment; Nicole
Ardoin, also of the Woods Institute and an assistant professor in
Stanford’s school of education;
and Joe Ryan, the Audubon
Society’s vice-president for climate and strategic initiatives.
In the fall of 2014, Ms. Root
spoke in a private gathering in
Portola Valley, noting that climate change threatens extinction
to 170 bird species. The threatened species local to Portola Valley, she says, include the purple
finch, the Western bluebird, the
white-breasted nuthatch and the
Western screech owl.
“We’ve invited some of the
leaders in the field of climate
science to help the group understand the depth of the problem,
but we’re not stopping there,”
Ms. Coffee said. “We want the
people attending to hear from
the scientists, and then have a
real conversation about what
we can do as a community to
address this problem.”
The setting will include round
tables where people can sit and
“brainstorm local solutions” to
key questions, including: What
should Portola Valley look like
in 2020 and 2050? What can residents do at home and elsewhere
to get there? How can Portola
Valley lead in dealing with climate change in California?
Ms. Root has a bachelor’s degree
in math and statistics from the
University of New Mexico, a master’s in biology from the University of Colorado, and a doctorate
in biology from Princeton University. Her current focus is mass
extinction as a result of global
warming. Her web page includes
links to news stories quoting
her on the dilemma that climate
change presents for birds.
Ms. Ardoin’s degrees include
a bachelor’s in international
business and French from James
Madison University, and a master’s and a doctorate in forestry
and environmental studies from
Yale University. Her current
interests include studying what
motivates people to adopt or
reject behaviors related to the
environment, engaging people
around the management of
natural resources, and whether
green buildings impact environmental attitudes, knowledge
and behaviors, according to her
web page at Stanford’s Graduate
School of Education.
Mr. Ryan has a master’s degree
in Latin American studies and a
doctorate in economic history,
both from the University of California at Los Angeles, according
to an Audubon bio. He will be
leading Audubon’s climate initiative. As an executive for ClimateWorks, he moved forward measures to reduce carbon emissions
in Mexico and Brazil, the bio
said. And he has managed a $15
million portfolio to support
clean transportation in Europe,
the Americas and South Asia. A
Maia finishes 7th in fencing event
Although it was her first time
on the U.S. team, Maia Chan
Chamberlain, 16, of Menlo Park
finished seventh in the women’s
competition at the Sabre Cadet
Fencing World Championship in
Tashkent, Uzbekistan, on April 2.
“Maia was 2 touches from a
bronze medal,” said her mother,
Lin Chan.
Maia and two teammates competed against the top fencers under
age 17 from 28 countries. Her
teammates finished 11th and 12th.
She made the U.S. team by

six months of competition that
included six international and
five domestic tournaments.

A still from Tyler MacNiven and Kelly Hennigan’s “Operation: Save the Date” action thriller video.
Engagement announcement goes viral
By Barbara Wood
Almanac Staff Writer
T
yler MacNiven, former
star of “The Amazing
Race,” whose parents
Margaret and Jamis own Buck’s
Restaurant in Woodside, is back
in the news — again — this time
for his wedding announcement
in the form of “Operation:
Save the Date,” a three-minute
action thriller video that had
more than 600,000 views on
YouTube as of April 5.
Tyler was featured in the
pages of the Almanac in 1998
as a Woodside High School
student when he campaigned
for admission to Stanford,
complete with a press conference and campaign staff
outfitted with picket signs.
He didn’t get in, although
Tyler said Stanford told him
the campaign hadn’t counted
against him. He ended up
attending the University of
California at Santa Cruz.
Tyler was again featured in
the Almanac in 2005, when
he made a documentary about
his adventures walking from
one end of Japan to another.
And then he appeared
on, and won, the reality TV
“Amazing Race” competition.
Now Tyler is apparently
ready to settle down. Or maybe he’s just found a partner in
crime in Kelly Hennigan. The
video announcing the date of
their impending wedding is
being talked about on the websites of Time, Inside Edition,
SF Gate, and MTV, among
others.
Go to tinyurl.com/tyler382
to see the video on YouTube.
Now the two just need to
figure out how to make sure
everyone who sees the video
doesn’t expect to be invited to
the wedding, and how they’ll
top their announcement. A
Erin leads effort to remake library

The Almanac
By Kathy Kennedy-Miller, Summit
Prep Charter High School parent.

Woodside in the
renovated library at
Summit Preparatory
Charter High School
in Redwood City.
A
new reading library was
recently created at Summit Prep Charter High
School in Redwood City by
Woodside resident Erin Miller
and many volunteers.
Rarely seen without a book
in her hand, Erin wanted to
improve the library at her high
school, where, in 2014, 100 percent of graduates applied to a
four-year college and 97 percent
were admitted. Summit spends
about $4,000 a year per student less than local public high
schools. As a result, some things,
like the library, get overlooked.
Her English teacher urged Erin
to focus her Girl Scout project on
the Summit Prep library, starting
with the college reference library.
After securing a donation
from Princeton Review, Erin
brought in 70 test prep books
plus college guides. By December 2014, the college reference
library was open for business.
“It is an honor library since we
have no money for either a librarian or a system,” Erin explains.
“And it is really being used. We
can’t keep ACT (American College Tests) books on the shelves.”
Next she took on the student
reading library, which had five
bookcases that were overflowing but “what was in them was
pretty uninspiring,” Erin says.
The room itself was depressing.
The lights weren’t working and
most of the furniture had disappeared. The carpet was badly
stained and partly held down with
black duct tape. Erin approached
Home Depot in San Carlos to see
if they would help. They said yes.
With the help of her adviser,
Janet Weisman Goff of Menlo
Park, who helped create the
library at Summit’s sister school,
Everest, Erin purged the reading
library of more than 500 books.
Many books found better homes
in teacher classrooms.
Erin set about refilling the
bookcases. “We needed more

Price per square foot on the rise
By Hadar Guibara, Realtor,
Sereno Group of Palo Alto
T
he average price paid
per square foot for Menlo Park homes during
the last 12 months rose a little
more than 15 percent from the
previous 12 months.
While monthly numbers in
the two periods — February
2014 to January 2015 and February 2013 to January 2014 —
had some erratic fluctuations,
the overall totals show that
buyers are paying more per
square foot for single-family
homes across all bedroomnumber counts.
Homes with bedroom numbers from two to six-plus averaged $924.30 per square foot
for the 12 months ending in
January 2015. That’s up 15.2
percent from the previous 12
months, when the average was
$801.90.
In looking
at squarefoot prices
for homes
with various
numbers of
bedrooms,
we’ll refer to
the 12 months ending in January 2015 as Period 1 and the
12 months ending in January
2014 as Period 2.
Q Two-bedroom homes in
Period 1 averaged $862.75 per
square foot, up 19.3 percent
from $723.17 in Period 2.
Q Homes with three bedrooms cost buyers $927.25 in
Period 1 compared to $749.75
in Period 2, a jump of 23.6
percent, the largest increase
among all categories.
Q In Period 1, four-bedroom
homes sold for $944.67 per
square foot. In Period 2, the
average was $880.58. This was
a 7.2 percent increase.
Q The square-foot average
for homes with five bedrooms rose 19.4 percent, from
$812.75 in Period 2 to $970.58
in Period 1.
QFinally, homes with six
or more bedrooms had an
average square-foot price of
$915.25 in Period 1, up 8.5
precent from $843.33 in Period 2.
No five-bedroom homes
were sold in one of the Period
1 months and in three of the
months in Period 2. Homes
with six-plus bedrooms were
sold in just four of the months
in Period 1 and in six of the
months in Period 2.
Throughout all the months
between February 2013 and
January 2015, the highest
average square-foot price for
two-bedroom homes was

Correction: In my March 25 column, I
gave an incorrect example of how to
calculate a median home sale price.
The median of a group of numbers is
the number in the middle of the
group. This number is determined by
placing all the numbers in order and
noting which number falls in the middle. For example, in this group of prices — $1.5 million, $1.8 million, $2 million, $6.5 million and $8 million, — the
median is $2 million. This differs from
the average, which is determined by

be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a
trustee auction does not automatically
entitle you to free and clear ownership
of the property. You should also be
aware that the lien being auctioned
off may be a junior lien. If you are the
highest bidder at the auction, you are
or may be responsible for paying off all
liens senior to the lien being auctioned
off, before you can receive clear title
to the property. You are encouraged
to investigate the existence, priority
and size of outstanding liens that may
exist on this property by contacting
the county recorder’s office or a title
insurance company, either of which may
charge you a fee for this information. If
you consult either of these resources,
you should be aware that the same
lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale

be postponed one or more times by
the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee,

the personal representative to take
many actions without obtaining court
approval. Before taking certain very
important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented
to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be
granted unless an interested person files
an objection to the petition and shows
good cause why the court should not
grant the authority.
A HEARING on the petition will be held
on April 20, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.:

If you are a creditor or a contingent
creditor of the decedent, you must file
your claim with the court and mail a
copy to the personal representative
appointed by the court within the later
of either (1) four months from the date
of first issuance of letters to a general
personal representative, as defined in
section 58 (b) of the California Probate
Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of
mailing or personal delivery to you
of a notice under section 9052 of the
California Probate Code. Other California
statutes and legal authority may affect
your rights as a creditor. You may want
to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form
DE-154) of the filing of an inventory
and appraisal of estate assets or of
any petition or account as provided in
Probate Code section 1250. A Request
for Special Notice form is available from

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you
are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that
there are risks involved in bidding at a
trustee auction. You will be bidding on
a lien, not on the property itself. Placing
the highest bid at a trustee auction does
not automatically entitle you to free and
clear ownership of the property. You
should also be aware that the lien being
auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you
are the highest bidder at the auction,
you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being
auctioned off, before you can receive
clear title to the property. You are
encouraged to investigate the existence,
priority, and size of outstanding liens
that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a
title insurance company, either of which
may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these
resources, you should be aware that the
same lender may hold more than one
mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The
sale date shown on this notice of sale
may be postponed one or more times
by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee,
or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g
of the California Civil Code. The law
requires that information about trustee
sale postponements be made available
to you and to the public, as a courtesy
to those not present at the sale. If you
wish to learn whether your sale date has
been postponed, and, if applicable, the
rescheduled time and date for the sale
of this property, you may call or visit the
Internet Web site, using the file number assigned to this case 14-001591.
Information about postponements
that are very short in duration or that
occur close in time to the scheduled
sale may not immediately be reflected
in the telephone information or on the
Internet Web site. The best way to verify
postponement information is to attend
the scheduled sale. www.Auction.
