Volume 44 Number 3

Silicon Valley Clean Water (SVCW; formerly SBSA ) is planning replacement of an aging wastewater pipeline that runs from the San Carlos Airport area to the treatment facility in southeastern Redwood Shores. The new, 63-inch pipeline in Redwood Shores is part of SVCWs Capital Improvement Program to replace and upgrade aging infrastructure. Construction of the new pipeline started in June 2013 with the section from Maple Street in Redwood City onto Bair Island; construction of the segment from San Carlos on Skyway Road up to the San Carlos Airport starts in June. The existing Redwood Shores segment is a 40 year old, 54inch concrete pipe that carries more volume than originally designed. It has a history of leakage because of unstable young bay mud soil in Redwood Shores. The pipeline will be replaced with a 63 line made of high-density polyethylene thermoplastic (HDPE), which is flexible to allow movement underground without leaking. The project does not add capacity to accommodate more population. It is only to repair the leakage problems with the existing pipe Engineers are studying several pipeline location options, with the goal of identifying the best route for the least disruption to Redwood Shores during construction. Whichever option is chosen, construction would begin in mid 2015 or later. Four alignment options from San Carlos Airport through Redwood Shores are being studied: in the slough, in the lagoon, in the street, and in the levee. Initial information indicates the in-slough and in-lagoon options are impractical due to environmental and water quality impacts and other issues. The in-street alignment along Redwood Shores Parkway would require extensive relocation of existing utilities, with one year of excavation and traffic control for utility relocation only. There would also be noise and vibration from sheet pile driving.

Installation of the new pipeline would require two additional years for construction. The in-levee alignment would require temporary closure of the levee trail and have short-term impacts to the area between residents backyard fences and the levee. This route has few existing utilities to move and would not require significant traffic control. Trail closures and impacts to adjacent properties would be minimized due to fast construction (an estimated 50 days depending on weather). Vinyl sheet lining would be used to strengthen the levee. The levee would be restored with new trails and native plantings. Once a preferred location has been determined based on community feedback and engineering studies, a California Environmental Quality Act document will be prepared to evaluate potential impacts of the preferred pipeline location along with other alignment options. The public will have the opportunity to review and comment on the process as part of the environmental study procedure. See page 14 for potential locations of the new pipes.

This is What Weve Been Doing!

I was having a conversation with some of my Shores friends recently about what RSCA has been doing, and they expressed surprise at all the things in which we were involved.

Presidents Memo for March 2014

Most of you are aware of our holiday events for our kids. And every home and most businesses get The PILOT magazine each month, so you know one way in which we communicate. We also have our web site, and for specific issues and events we use our roadway median signs and a fairly extensive email system. So let me list just some of the many things that RSCA has been doing in the last few years.

The Canada Goose Problem:

For almost two years we worked with U.S and California wildlife officials and Redwood City to identify the things we could (and could NOT) do to help mitigate the problems caused by our resident (non-migrating) Canada geese and the unhealthful excrement they leave on our sidewalks and in our parks and other green spaces. The result in 2012 was a draft document providing clear guidelines for property owners on approved methods to help control our growing population. We continue to work to get a larger number of property owners, especially of our business properties, to take a more active role in controlling this nuisance in our community.

Increasing Voter Turnout

There is new leadership at our Police Department, and we are trying to ensure that we have a consistent 24/7 police presence in the Shores. We have also worked to make the Department aware of certain hot spots where we see potential danger to pedestrians or other motorists. We hope you have noticed the increased patrol presence around our schools and parks.

We are fortunate to have one of the Citys fire stations locating in the Shores. This means fairly quick response to fire and medical emergencies. But it was only a few years ago that there was only sporadic police presence in the Shores. Several summers ago, in a planned community meeting to discuss police issues, the entire command staff of the RWC Police Department was a half-hour late because they were caught in traffic on Hwy.101.

Tree Replacement Along the Parkways

Beautification of the Holly Entrance to the Shores

We have been working with the City to come up with a plan to mitigate the constant (and costly) need for street repairs. The City described their plan at our Annual Meeting on Feb.12, and details are available on Page 4. We are also asking the City to develop a master tree plan for the Shores that will specify that any tree removed be replaced from a list of recommended trees that are compatible with our Shores biosystem. We dont want our trees to disappear, and we want to maintain a consistent look throughout the Shores.

It was over 18 months ago that we first began to walk the parkways with City Public Works to take a closer look at the damage to the roadways and sidewalks that was being caused by the roots of older trees lining our streets. Some places that had been repaired the previous summer were breaking up again. It was obvious a more permanent solution was needed to deal with continuing damage to our roadways.

New Sewer Pipeline Coming Through the Shores

Whether you agree with or oppose any particular issue, we want ALL eligible voters to express their opinions at the ballot box. Those at our annual meeting heard about the need to replace an old (and leaking) sewer pipeline that runs underneath the Shores. You can find details about this coming project on Page 1 and 14.

Our local City Council and School Boards are chosen in oddyear off-year elections where voter turn-out is usually very low. We believe that these local officials have a huge impact on our community, and our influence is directly related to how many of our registered voters actually VOTE!

.. and Dont Forget the Levees!

RSCA already is and will continue to be active in mitigating the impact of this needed infrastructure project on our Shores residents and businesses. Its been a few years, but it was RSCA that took the lead in focusing attention on and getting our levees brought up to current FEMA standards. This avoided the Shores being declared a flood zone with significant impact on insurance rates and property values.

After several frustrating years of RSCA trying to deal with this, Redwood City finally tasked a staff person to determine once and for all who owned what. With that done, the City has worked with RSCA over the past few months to get all of the parties together and begin to develop a plan for each city and agency to clean up their respective properties. We hope you have already noticed some efforts to begin the beautification of the Holly entrance to the Shores.

If you enter the Shores from the Ralston interchange, you get a most favorable first impression of the Shores. If you enter from the Holly interchange, the impression is quite different. The problem has been that the properties between Hwy.101 and Twin Dolphin belong to different cities and several county and state agencies, and there has been until recently no agreement on who owned and was responsible for what.

The Redwood Shores Owners Association (RSOA) is the umbrella organization for most of our local HOAs, and we want to acknowledge the help of Carole Wong and RSOA in supporting many of these efforts. Our local HOAs are an important part of our efforts to keep ALL of the Shores a great place to live and work. As stated in our Articles of Incorporation (dated October 1970 !) and our Bylaws, the primary purpose of the Redwood Shores Community Association (RSCA) is to be THE advocate on issues that affect the quality of life in the Shores. RSCAs mission is to represent the interests of all residents (both homeowners and renters) and businesses in the Shores. RSCA is an inclusive organization that recognizes and celebrates the rich diversity of our community. You can read the complete statement of our Mission & Purpose, along with other information about your community association, on the web at RSCA.org.

And This is Our Mission & Purpose

Currently, cities such as Palo Alto and Daly City, to as far east as New York and Philadelphia are extensively using Public Stuff to help their residents report quality of life issues. This is further evidence of Redwood Citys strong commitment to being responsive to the needs of their community, said Surya Yalamanchili, CEO of PublicStuff. Were excited to partner with Redwood City in making it even easier for residents to work together in improving their neighborhoods.

We hope myRWC helps to deepen our sense of partnership with our residents, shares Mayor Jeffrey Gee. We want people to understand that local government only functions at its best when everyone participates in identifying and solving issues, and thats where myRWC comes in. It really puts City Hall at your fingertips.

myRWC, developed with a broad spectrum of cross-department and community input, will enable citizens to report commonly reported public issues such as graffiti, potholes, light outages, and abandoned vehicles, to name a few, while also giving them the ability to attach photos, see who else has reported a similar concern, receive automatic updates to their inquiry, and selftrack the Citys response to their reported issue. In addition, myRWC will have a portal that will allow residents to learn about special events, register for Parks Recreation and Community Services programs, as well as sign up for Council packets and pay their Redwood City utility bill. Finally, myRWC features One Voice Translation which supports more than 17 languages. When a resident submits a request in their native language, the request is automatically translated into English for the Redwood City team.

Redwood City, CA . - The City of Redwood City is launching its free smart phone app called myRWC - a new community engagement tool that allows citizens to report common quality of life issues and learn of important City news - all from their handheld device. The new app, developed and launched in partnership with Public Stuff, a company that uses technology to improve two-way communications between residents and local agencies, will increase access to local government, efficiency in solving quality of life issues, and transparency of public information. The new app is anticipated to become the one-stop Redwood City resource as residents make myRWC their main means of how they report concerns and obtain information about City happenings.

To increase access to City Halls New Communication Platform, will give Residents a new and easy way to report, track, and share quality of life issues with Redwood City staff and fellow community members.

Community: Redwood City Police launch a website to reunite victims with their stolen property

Redwood City, CA. The Redwood City Police Department has launched a Pinterest site for the purpose of reuniting victims with their stolen property. The website contains photographs of property, primarily jewelry and bicycles, recovered by police officers during the course of their duties. Photographs of the property are uploaded onto the website so the public can easily access the site to check for their missing property. The site has already achieved success. Two recent victims of residential burglaries accessed the site and were able to identify some of their missing jewelry. The site gives victims the ability to view property that was recovered by several law enforcement agencies in one easy to use site. Victims are encouraged to check the site regularly for items that may have been recently recovered. If you believe you are the owner of any of the items pictured, please contact Detective Dave Stahler at 650-780-7620 or dstahler@redwoodcity.org. You will be asked to provide a police department case number to document the theft and documentation to establish you are the owner of the property. Redwood City Police Department Pinterest site: www.pinterest.com/redwoodcitypd/recovered-property/ Contact Information: Lieutenant Sean Hart

We are excited to be launching myRWC, explains City Manager, Bob Bell. It will provide our team with an easier and more efficient way to engage residents and improve access to services, while also allowing residents and visitors to be our eyes and ears on the street to tell us of issues that need resolution. To learn more about myRWC and start making myRWC your one-stop Redwood City resource, go online to http://www.redwoodcity.org/myrwc/.

Heres how it works for residents: 1. Residents download the free app by visiting the Google or Apple app store to search by myRWC. We recommend that residents ensure that they have the latest operating system on their phone before downloading. 2. Residents report concerns directly and quickly to Redwood City. Using myRWC on their smart phone. Residents can also access the Web portal from their computer by logging on to: http://www.redwoodcity.org/myrwc/. 3. The concern is routed to the responsible Redwood City team for response. The Redwood City team keeps residents in the loop with status updates and comments on the submitted requests. The initial implementation includes a list of the most popular requests such as potholes and abandoned vehicles. Redwood City looks to build upon the initial functionality over time with community feedback.

In addition, we need the publics help. If you see something suspicious, we ask you to report it to your police department. To report violations, please call 780-7100.

The police department has also been receiving complaints regarding illegally parked cars. The department has and will continue to respond to these complaints and issue citations or warnings as the responding officer sees fit. On public right of ways, all provisions of the California Vehicle Code are applicable. On private property and private roads, the police department can issue citations for violations of disabled parking restrictions and clearly marked or designated fire lanes.

Additionally, the city is investigating the possibility of installing devices which would assist traffic officers in enforcing the law for those who continue to willfully violate the red light law.

Regarding complaints of red light running at left turn lanes into large corporate facilities; the police department has distributed memoranda company-wide at the most likely destinations in order to attempt to gain voluntary compliance.

Additionally, officers have been spending time at the elementary schools enforcing traffic laws that ensure the safety of children and parents in the immediate area.

Patrol and traffic officers have been monitoring four-way stop sign controlled intersections for stop sign violations and major thoroughfares for adherence to the posted speed limits.

Redwood City Police Department has increased its presence and enforcement activity in all areas of Redwood Shores, in response to recent complaints from Redwood Shores residents

Please do not tell me that trees are not native to the bay. from Two Years Before The Mast by Richard Henry Dana, Jr 1909 (p.226): We sailed down this magnificient bay with a light wind, the tide, which was running out, carrying us at the rate of four or five knots. It was a fine day; the first of entire sunshine we had had for more than a month. We passed directly under the high cliff on which the Presidio is built, and stood into the middle of the bay, from whence we could see small bays, making up into the interior, on every side; LARGE AND BEAUTIFULLY-WOODED ISLANDS; and the mouths of several small rivers. If California ever becomes a prosperous country, this bay will be the centre of its prosperity. the trees are mostly gone now Personal Comment: The trimming of the trees project on Redwood Shores Parkway is excellent, in thought and function!

Dear Editor

On February 12, 2014, Redwood City Officials attended the RSCAs Annual Meeting held at the Redwood Shores Branch Library. Included in the many topics discussed, was a presentation by Community Development Director, Bill Ekern, regarding the buckled roadway along Redwood Shores Parkway being caused by the Italian Stone Pine trees in the medians. Italian Stone Pines (Pinus pinea) were originally planted along the Parkway and throughout Redwood Shores as development ensued in the early 1970s. The pines have long been a dominant tree species throughout Redwood Shores as they were also planted as a landscape architectural feature along the Parkway and other roadways. However, in recent years and as the pines have grown and matured, their root systems have begun to buckle curbs, gutters, roadways and sidewalks. Their overgrown limbs have also begun to break-off during high wind and rain storms, creating a safety hazard for motorists and pedestrians. Residents and City staff speculated that the pines were reaching the end of their normal life and concluded the only solution was to remove and replace them with a tree species more compatible with the Shores environment. The City staff and RSCA have worked for almost two years examining solutions and looking for ways to lessen the damage being caused by the pines, while preserving the visual aesthetic impact they currently provide along the Parkway and throughout Redwood Shores. Steven Parker, the Citys Landscape Architect says, The Italian Stone Pine trees are young at 30-40 years old, and are capable of growing for 150+ years. They currently provide a great visual aesthetic and removing them would leave a huge void on the landscape. Parker says the pines have adapted well to the poor soils and recycled irrigation water, while other species of trees and plants have not. Because of the Italian Stone Pines over-riding aesthetic value, the City is proposing a three-prong approach to ensure the trees sustainability while maintaining the Parkways safety: 1. PRUNING- Prune the existing pines in the median islands along Redwood Shores Parkway. This includes canopy pruning to keep dead branches from falling as well as root pruning to keep roots away from paved areas such as roadways and sidewalks. 2. SELECTIVE REMOVAL- Remove those pines planted to close to each other or that are too close to the roadway. 3. STREET REPAIR- Repair those areas of roadway that have buckled from trees undermining root system. The City estimates a period of 2-3 years for the initial work to be completed and then performing on-going regular pruning of the pine trees. Submitted by Steven H. Parker City Landscape Architect

ITALIAN STONE PINE TREES IN THE PARKWAY MEDIANS

I had hoped the government was finally thinking about aesthetics for a change and NOT pushing the current Liberal ideology which pervades Government Think these days. The trim job gives the trees a Zen-like quality....very peaceful, if you take the time to notice and not rush home (or where ever!) as most of us usually do. SAVE THE TREES! I am generally NOT known as a tree-hugger but, on this one, I come down on the side of The Trees, they do provide us with Oxygen... after all is said and done Robert Craig Birner, Redwood Shores resident

One important drug that is often left off the medical history form at the dental office is aspirin (ASA, Ecotrin, Empirin, Easprin and Measurin). The reason appears to be that the perception of their potency is often underated. When we are asked about taking any medications, most of us think about prescription medications, and waiting in line at the pharmacy. We are much less likely to think about the bottle of aspirin we picked up at the supermarket. Aspirin is a potent drug that is used for a wide variety of conditions. The primary function of aspirin is to reduce pain, swelling and fever. Aspirin is often used to ease the discomfort associated with a toothache, headache, reduce the risk of a second heart attack, relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, and other medical uses. Despite its importance, one important side effect of aspirin is that it can increase bleeding. This is of critical importance to any doctor who is performing a surgical procedure. This includes your dentist when providing certain types of dental treatment. The dental procedures expected to cause bleeding include dental extraction, deep cleaning under the gum-line, gum surgery, and biopsies. The daily use of aspirin can cause excessive and prolonged bleeding during and after these procedures. It is also important to remember that the aspirin used in combination with other blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfin sodium), Ticlid (ticlopidine), and Persantine (dipridamole) can increase bleeding even more than aspirin alone. In some cases, aspirin should be avoided for at least one week prior to dental procedures that are expected to cause bleeding. The decision to alter your aspirin intake should be made with the consultation of your family doctor (or specialist) and your dentist. You should always include any dentists medical history form, especially aspirin and aspirin containing compounds.

Some of those impacts include: Availability of coverage No one can be turned down for coverage because of a medical condition. Expanded options for purchasing coverage All U.S. citizens and those lawfully present in the U.S. can now get coverage through the new Health Insurance Marketplaces, called Covered California (www.coveredca.com) in California. You do not have to purchase your plan through a Marketplace. Choice and the information to make good choices With Covered California and the requirement for easy-to-understand language in a Summary of Benefits and Coverage, Americans will have more information and more options to choose what is best for them. Under the ACA most individuals are required to have insurance. Some individuals may be eligible for government subsidies to buy insurance which are only available through Covered California. Open enrollment continues through March 31st.

The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress and then signed into law by the President on March 23rd, 2010. On June 28th, 2012, the Supreme Court rendered a final decision to uphold the health care law. The new law initiated the most significant changes in the U.S. health care system since Medicare was established in 1965. The ACA also known as health care reform took full effect on January 1, 2014. Its designed to help more Americans get health care coverage, and make it more affordable.

Affordable Care Act (ACA)

If youre required to have coverage, youll be charged a tax penalty by the government if you go without insurance for 3 consecutive months or longer. You wont be charged the tax penalty if you are uninsured for less than 3 consecutive months. The deadline for coverage beginning on April 1 is March 15.

Few would disagree that protecting children is one of the top priorities for any community. While we all would like to believe that this problem doesnt exist in Redwood Shores, we all also know that it could.

What if your child has a friend and that friend is showing some of these signs? While many of the above dont have to suggest abuse or neglect, it is best to err on the side of safety. So, if you do suspect that someone you know may be living in an environment that is dangerous to their well being, it is important to know that Child Protective Services of San Mateo County has a 24 hour hotline for such calls. They can be reached at 650-595-7922 or 800-632-4615. Calling the police is also an option, especially if you believe that the child is at risk and needs immediate intervention.

Bullying or being a victim of bullying may also be signs as can other violent acts such as cruelty to animals. Some children may appear unusually scared, anxious, depressed and withdrawn, and seem to be constantly on guard for further signs of aggression towards them. Sleep problems and nightmares may also be present as well as poor nutritional habits, marked weight loss or weight gain and low selfesteem. Poor personal hygiene and untreated medical and dental problems can also be indicators that a child is being neglected. Additionally, academic problems and frequent absences from school are not uncommon in children who have been abused or neglected.

Signs to be especially aware of include unexplained injuries such as burns, bruises, and fractures and markings on the body suggesting that some type of instrument may have been used. Such markings could be reflective that objects such as sticks, belts, shoes or hands were used on the child. Other physical symptoms such as frequent head aches and stomach aches may also exist. Sometimes older children will exhibit behaviors more common for younger kids, such as thumb sucking, bed-wetting and a fear of being in the dark. Some children may be afraid to go home, and older ones may run away or engage in risk taking behaviors such as alcohol and drug use. Behavior considered to be sexually inappropriate for the childs age, such as promiscuity, may also be cause for concern.

In 2012 there were 81,764 substantiated cases of child abuse and neglect in California (from kidsdata.org). While professionals such as teachers and healthcare workers are mandated to report these cases, we should all know the warning signs and what to do if we in fact suspect that someone we know may be a victim. Of course, when discussing abuse and neglect it is important not to overlook sexual and emotional abuse as well.

Keeping Your Dog Safe In Your Car

As dogs have become valued family members, it is more and more common to see dogs riding in their owners cars. On any highway excursion you will witness dogs riding in the drivers lap, hanging halfway out the window, pacing nervously backand-forth in the second seat or riding shotgun in the front seat. All of these situations put the driver, the dog and the other passengers in a perilous position. If the car swerves or stops abruptly, the dog becomes a 20 to 80 pound missile flying around the inside of the car, striking other passengers, smashing the windshield or launching out an open window. Dogs riding in the front passenger seat will be killed instantly by the inflation of the airbag in the dashboard (Thats why young children must ride in the backseat!). If you love your dog enough to train him and to take him on errands and excursions to dog parks, what is the best way to keep him for keep him safe?

Three options for securing your pet significantly increase the chances of your dogs surviving a collision and decrease the potential for distracted driving and injuries to the other passengers. First, move the dog out of the front seat and lower car windows only 2 inches for air circulation. Now put your dog in a chest harness and attach a 2-foot leash. Run the car safety belt through the leash handle and latch the safety belt. The dog will be able to sit, stand or lie down, but he will not be able to jump around the car. The second option is to put the dogs crate in the back of the car and have him travel in his crate. If your dog is nervous about riding in the car, feed his meals in the car for a week. Take the dog for short 10 to 15 minute rides (on an empty stomach) until he stops panting, lip licking, pacing and generally appears more relaxed. When you are going on longer road trips stop every 1 1/2 to 2 hours to exercise the dog and delay feeding him until you reach your destination. For a dog that tends to get carsick, give him a couple peppermint candies before you start to settle his stomach and make sure there is plenty of circulating air on curvy roads. Park your car in the shade and never leave the dog in the car if the outside temperature is above 70F. Written by Jean Cary, the Service Dog Tutor.

BelmontRedwood Shores School District Update

Buses Many of our Redwood Shores students in grades 6-8 take public SamTrans buses up the hill to Ralston Middle School. In early February, the bus routes were changed. As we understand it, the routes to Ralston have become longer, and the buses are more crowded. A number of parents shared their concerns with us that it was taking their children an hour or more to get to school. While we do not own, manage, or control the buses, as of the writing of this article, we are actively partnering with the parents to encourage SamTrans to revise the routes to provide a safe, direct route for our middle school students. To their credit, SamTrans has been responsive, and we expect to have revised routes in place by March 10.

Although I prefer to write about the exciting teaching and learning taking place in our schools, sometimes it is important to update you on other aspects of our work. In this update, I am writing about buses and budgets!

Budgets Back in January, Governor Brown proposed a budget for Californias 2014-15 fiscal year that prioritized education funding (a 10% increase, with an additional $6 billion in overdue payments from previous years). Surprisingly, its likely that the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District (BRSSD) will receive none of this additional educational funding. The extra funding will go to the 85% of our states school districts that are state-funded and receiving a per-pupil allocation from Sacramento. School districts like BRSSD that generate more than the states per-pupil allocation via local property taxes are allowed to keep the property taxes and be locally funded rather than state funded. These districts are called basic aid districts, and about 15% of districts in California are basic aid.

This year (2013-14), Belmont-Redwood Shores School District is basic aid because our property taxes generate about $3 million more than we would receive per pupil by the state ($21 million vs. $18 million). As the state invests more in K-12 education, it allocates more dollars per pupil, which closes the gap between what our property taxes generate and what the state would allocate to our district per pupil. Next year, we expect to still use our local property taxes to fund education, but well only come out ahead of the states per-pupil allocation by $500,000, not $3 million like this year. If the state continues to increase its K-12 per pupil funding, we expect BRSSD to be state funded by 2015-16. Only then will BelmontRedwood Shores benefit from additional state educational funding. As long as we are ahead of the states per-pupil allocation and locally funded as a basic aid district, our revenue will only increase by the amount that property values (and taxes) increase.

Looking ahead, we will continue to keep you informed of school district and educational issues. Please do not hesitate to call our office at 650-637-4800 (x1003) or email me at mmilliken@brssd.org should you have questions about school district issues. Thank you for your support! Michael Milliken, Ph.D., Superintendent

To be clear, BRSSD is ahead of most districts in the state, but Californias per-pupil spending on K-12 education ranks 50th in the nation when regional cost differences are included (see Education Weeks Quality Counts Report, January 2014). This is why the Measure R parcel tax and local donations are so important to keep our schools competitive nationally.

Addressing Ankle Sprains An ankle sprain is a common injury which affects people of all ages and activity levels. Ankle sprains occur when ankle ligaments are stretched past their normal range of motion. A severe ankle sprain may be associated with a complete tear of a ligament and bone detachment. There is oftentimes pain, swelling, and bruising. When symptoms are severe, a physician may order x-rays to rule out a broken bone. If your level of pain is severe and the severity persists 72 hours following the injury, you should seek medical attention. Additionally, if there is any numbness, splotchy red patches of skin, or a change of temperature of the leg, you should seek medical attention immediately.

As soon as possible, take care of your ankle sprain with protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation (PRICE). For the first 24 - 72 hours, protect the ankle with an ankle brace, rest your ankle by decreasing your activity until the pain subsides, place ice on your ankle or place your foot in a bucket of icy water for 15-20 minutes, several times per day, compress your ankle with an elastic compression wrap, and elevate your ankle above the level of your heart for several hours a day. Early rehabilitation includes ankle range of motion exercises such as ankle circles, pointing and flexing the foot, and moving the foot right to left. A physical therapist can help you create a complete rehabilitation plan which may include balance exercises, neuromuscular re-education, stretching, joint mobilizations. After days or weeks of limping due to discomfort, you may develop some compensatory mechanisms in your walking pattern which can be addressed with gait training. Many people feel that ankle recovery is complete when they can walk without a limp. Balance exercises, foot arch strengthening, and addressing the mechanics of the entire leg that suffered the sprain is often overlooked. This is why the chance of ankle sprain recurrence is reported to be up to 70% in athletes. You can prevent ankle sprains and re-sprains by seeking an exercise specialist, such as a physical therapist, for customized exercise plan. On your own, try balancing on one leg in a safe place. An athletes goal would be to stand on one leg with eyes closed and arms crossed for 30 seconds, 5 single leg heelraises, and jumping off two legs and landing on one leg without loss of balance or knee going inward.

2) Have an isolated area for the cat. A quiet room is a great choice. Have the room set up with a new litter box, a water bowl and a few toys. Make sure you have a bed for the kittysometimes a box with towels will make a great bed. Cats love to lay in boxes and they often feel more secure. Keep kitty confined to this room.

1) Go slow and be patient! This is often the hardest for us humans to do! A cat will often take 7 to 10 days to transition to a new home. There are new smells and noises, which can be quite scary to your new kitty. So, whats a person to do?

I often receive many questions asking about the proper way of introducing a new kitty to the household. While, it may take a bit of planning to do things the correct way and it may take a bit of patience on your part, but it will be worth it!

3) Give your new cat an hour or so to explore the room on his own. After an hour or so, bring in some food for kitty. At this point your kitty may or may not eat. Dont be alarmed if he doesnt start eating the moment you put his food down! It may still take him some time to adjust and he may not even eat that first day. 4) Dont everyone descend on the new kitty all at once! If you have children, bring them in the kittys room one at a time, allowing them to meet the newest member of your household.

5) Your new kitty may be timid and shy. Speak softly to your new kitty. Get on his level and sit on the floor with him. It is much less intimidating to a cat when you get down to his level. Let kitty come to you. Offer an outstretched hand for kitty to sniff. With time and patience your kitty will adjust to your household and will become a full-fledged member of your family!

On the runway, they did it this way: Transparent skirts over granny panties and bare legs left nothing to hide. In a real day, do it this way: Wear an attractive slip underneath a transparent skirt so there is full coverage. This way you wont worry about revealing too much. On the runway, they did it this way: High neck crop tops with bare midriffs showing, paired with knee-length skirts. In a real day, do it this way: Pair a high neck boxy crop top over a lean, long, untucked undershirt in a matching color with a waisted pant. This is the more modest, wearable choice for most people and prevents any possible muffin top. On the runway, they did it this way: Ruffles were so wild and crazy that they made outfits look like fantasy costumes. In a real day, do it this way: Wear ruffles that dont overpower your shape but rather accentuate the parts of your body you want to accentuate. On the runway, they did it this way: Wore revealing slip dresses without undergarments. In a real day, do it this way: Pick an easier dress style to wear, like a shift dress. Undergarments are not an issue and you dont have to have a models figure to wear it. On the runway, they did it this way: Long fringe on dresses and skirts flew in every direction with every step the models took. In a real day, do it this way: Get your fringe fix with fringe details on handbags, clutches, or flat ankle boots. If youre ready for more flair, get a fringed leather jacket.

COUNTY WICKLOW LAMB WITH BASIL DRESSING BASIL DRESSING 1 Bunch Fresh Basil Leaves (about 2 ounces) 1 Clove Garlic, Minced Juice of 1 Lemon 1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste

Heres a yummy quick and easy dinner for those of you who like lamb. County Wicklow in Ireland was founded by the Vikings but its lovely location south of Dublin on the east coast of the island rises from the harbor to gently rolling hills farmland frolicking with what else, but lambs. Lots of lambs! Pair these delicious chops with braised green beans and mashed potatoes and enjoy!

If youve read this column before, you will remember my fondness for St. Patricks Day! Its another well-celebrated Holiday that falls in the middle of a month where the weather comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb, as the old Farmers Almanac used to forewarn. Here we are in lovely albeit drought struck Northern California where spring has sprung, and yet my Connecticut family members are still up to their eyebrows in snow. As one of my brother-in-laws recently claimed Im just SICK of all the SNOW but I had to remind him hes just sick of shoveling and plowing it, but still revels in all of his ski trips to Vermont searching for knee-deep powder and that perfect downhill run!

KISS ME, IM IRISH MORE ST. PATRICKS DAY RECIPES!

Let me get to the point: wine is too often served at the wrong temperaturenot only in tasting rooms and restaurants, but also at dinner parties and social gatherings. Red wine is served too warm and white wine is poured too cold. For many drinkers, this wine advisory is yet another one of those wine affectations like varietal-specific wine glasses, special aeration gizmos and arcane food and wine pairing rulesthat drive them crazy. I concede that specially contoured stemware for every major varietal is unnecessary. I also grant that quirky aeration doodads and esoteric food/wine pairing rules are also not crucial. However, when it comes to the temperature of the wine in your glass, I believe that ones chances for enjoyment are greatly improved when the wines serving temperature is such that its inherent, note-worthy traits are permitted to be on full, glorious display.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Let it brown slightly, then add the chicken stock or broth and bring to a boil. Add the green beans, salt & pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until the beans are tender BUT still slightly crisp. Remove from heat and serve with County Wicklow Lamb Chops.

1. To make the dressing: Combine the basil, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and salt & pepper in a food processor and process until smooth. Set aside. 2. To cook the lamb: Lightly rub the chops on each side with vinegar and season with salt & pepper. Heat the olive oil in a grill pan or large skillet over medium high heat and cook the lamb chops for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until done BUT still pink in the center. Do not overcook! 3. To Serve: Arrange 3 chops on each of 4 plates and drizzle with the basil dressing. Serve with green beans and mashed potatoes.

Most Americans prefer their fruit juices straight from the fridge, their water and cola drinks with ice cubes and their beer catatonically cold. (Also, for those macho types who still will admit to doing it, a straight shot of freezer-stored Grey Goose vodka or Aquavit, is still the only way to enjoy that ritual.) Why then, given those beverage palate preferences, shouldnt winethe second, and often the first, most important item on the dinner tablebe served at its optimum, pleasure-giving temperature, which by the way is not room temperature. Room temperature is one of those misunderstood, historical faux-verities that must be taken with a grain of salt, or possibly, with a sip of chilled Chardonnay. Its a rusty remnant from those overly-civilized days when British wine connoisseurs dined in chilly, tapestry-draped rooms that had no central heating, and woolen, multi-layered clothing and flickering fireplaces were the primary sources of warmth. Todays thermostat-controlled dining room temperature typically at or above 70 degreesis not ideal for serving reds. If it were, then one would find dining room walls bedecked with designer-styled, wooden wall storage systems. So, if not room temperature, then what?

To be sure, Im not proposing that you to dip a thermometer into the bottle. However, definitely place that redespecially one from your kitchen, counter-top wine rackinto the fridge for about thirty minutes before pouring it. As for whites, either take them out of the fridge twenty or so minutes prior to serving or cup your hands around the glass until their warmth lowers the wines arctic grip. Those actions should reveal what the wine really has to offer. The reds will seem fuller and fresher, and somehow even younger, while the aromatics and the flavors of the whites will seem to be more clearly delineated. Give your wines a chance to show their best.

If you have any questions about aircraft overflights or noise, please contact the Airport at (650) 573-2666. Submitted by Gretchen Kelly, Airport Manager

The total aircraft operations at the Airport over the last ten years has declined as a result of the recession and increased fuel prices which continue to reduce activities at the Airport. In the past 2 years, the Airport has seen a slight increase in the number of charter flight operations. These flights bring travels to the area often to conduct business in San Mate County. Additionally, the charter aircraft are turboprop powered that are quieter than propeller aircraft and do not engage in the frequent pattern traffic that affects Redwood Shores.

While these noise abatement procedures cannot eliminate the noise impacts of aircraft overflights in the Redwood Shores community, we believe they have helped to greatly reduce the noise impacts for residents.

Additionally, Airport staff monitor aircraft operations in the neighborhoods surrounding the airport one hour each day to ensure compliance with the procedures. Our observation records indicate that 99% of aircraft are operating in compliance with the procedures. Owners of aircraft that are observed in violation of the procedures are notified by mail of the violation and also contacted on the ground if they return to the airport.

* Directing aircraft to reduce power following takeoff and to follow established routes that minimize noise impacts over Redwood Shores

* Establishing voluntary restrictions on practice pattern flying activities during specified nighttime, weekend and holiday hours

Some of the procedures include: * Instructing aircraft to depart to the south when wind conditions permit avoiding Redwood Shores and overflying the undeveloped Bair Island area

Recently the San Carlos Airport has received inquiries from residents of Redwood Shores and local officials regarding the Airports activity levels and restrictions to aircraft activities. The Airport does not have restrictions on the number of aircraft that or the times that aircraft may arrive or depart the Airport as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does not allow the Airport to impose them. The Airport is sensitive to the concerns of residents surrounding the Airport and has worked with the community, pilot groups, flight schools and the FAA to develop voluntary noise abatement policies and procedures to minimize noise impacts. While the FAA has exclusive regulatory authority over aircraft in flight, the airport has made efforts to educate the pilots and users of the Airport to conform to our noise abatement procedures.
