Editorial

TO OUR YOUNGER READERS
A line at the bottom of this newsletter says, “The OBSERVER is for all.” That means young and old alike, recent graduates as well as older graduates – including non-graduates and friends of Galileo. We are all alumni whether we graduated or attended only one semester, regardless of our age. Recent graduates sometimes feel they are not alumni until they reach a certain age – not true. You are alumni at the moment you receive your diplomas. And as alumni you should start thinking about your new role as former students of Galileo.
The Observer is your newsletter. If you want more news about your fellow young alumni, give us the information and we’ll publish it. Send in stories, articles or more modest items about what you and your friends are doing. Attend GAA events – they are as much for you as they are for older folks. Communicate and participate. The Observer encourages and welcomes contributions from its readers. Together we can make it an informative and newsworthy publication that binds us in a united effort to keep our Galileo heritage alive.

Please note that the "Spring Fling 2012" has been rescheduled to July 14th, 2012. Reservation form enclosed.

It’s summertime, and we are going to have hot fun at the 3rd Annual Spring Fling on July 14th (see enclosed flyer). It’s also festival time, and the many events going on in San Francisco, the Bay Area, and Northern California can easily occupy one’s weekends. There are the street festivals in The City, the many County Fairs and, of course, the State Fair. Enjoy some or all of them.
The North Beach Festival, held on June 16 & 17, has expanded to include Columbus Avenue all the way to Broadway. It was formerly confined to Washington Square Park. On a beautiful weekend that saw Tiger Woods make a failed bid to win the U. S. Open at the Olympic Club, the NBA finals, and Giants pitcher Matt Cain pitching a perfect game (which occurred later), North Beach was humming if not buzzing with excitement.
OBSERVation: McDonald’s advertises on its bags that every single egg they use during the year “is individually inspected – all 3 billion of them.” The first McDonald’s hamburger I ever had was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1959. It cost 19 cents!
Blonde on blonde: I used to carry a photo of Marilyn Monroe and Poet Carl Sandburg hugging each other. Their hair, both the same color, was mingled together, and you couldn’t tell the difference.
For you Vets who go to the V.A. Medical Center on Clement Street, the newly constructed parking lot now has a half dozen valet parking attendants willing to park your car, and there are no tips allowed.
FAREWELL, FOIE GRAS: Ducks and geese, rejoice. Foodies, mourn.
Pet Peeves: 1) Politically-charged chain emails. 2) Recorded voices answering telephone calls. By the time you hear the option to speak to a live person, you’ve forgotten what you called about.
Words to live by: Always be content with what you have, but never with what you are.

Until next time, the observatory is closed . . .

Where Your Donations Go

Thanks to the generosity of the alumni and friends, we have generated money to help offset cuts to programs and services at Galileo Academy of Science and Technology. Without your help, we could not do this. The budgets this year for the school have been cut drastically, and Galileo continues to need our help. Your donations so far for 2012 were used for:



$500.00 for the school newspaper, the “Pendulum” which struggles every month to meet expenses. It is no longer funded by the school.

$1,000.00 to paint the bleachers which were in very bad condition.

$300.00 towards the Galileo electronic marquee/sign to be installed on Van Ness & Bay, when the total funds goal is reached.

A Note from the Editor: Music, it is said, is the universal language. With that in mind, we introduce a new feature on music in our summer edition. The first piece is an account of my afternoon at the Golden Gate Park Band concert (see story at right). We invite all music aficionados to contribute items (articles) for future issues, anything from rock and pop to classical music. We expect to see submissions from Joanna Woeber (Giovanna diTano) on opera, Vince Gomez on symphony and conducting, and Bill Dito on Broadway tunes and composing. All three are Galileo alumni. With all the talent there is at Galileo, past and present, we invite all of you to send in pieces on memorable experiences, a song you love. commentary on an artist or performance -- in short, anything musical. In the meantime, enjoy a musical summer.

My Day in the Park

By Sisvan Der Harootunian

On a recent sunny Sunday afternoon, I chanced to visit Golden Gate Park, specifically the California Academy of Sciences. Finding a line 3 blocks long, I strolled around the concourse, looking at the paintings by local artists. I ended up buying two paintings by a Japanese artist from Mill Valley. I also commissioned him to do a special work for me. I heard music playing nearby and decided to investigate. To my amazement, it was the Golden Gate Park Band playing Italian favorites. As I took a front row seat, I remembered that my Dad took me to these concerts many years ago on Sunday afternoons. I thought these concerts had long ago disappeared, but no, they have been playing continuously for all these many years. There was a terrific accordionist and four soloists. The band members looked weathered like the band shell in which they were playing. But they seemed to enjoy playing as much as the audience enjoyed listening. Even a dog barked in appreciation after one selection. With all the activities San Francisco has to offer, especially on weekends, it is satisfying to know that in a spot in our beautiful park, a group of dedicated musicians are pleasing visitors every Sunday starting at 1:00 PM. It is a welcome refuge from our often hectic daily lives. I left the park exhilarated and vowed to go back soon.

ALUMNI NEWS

I'm attaching a page from the 1945 edition of the Telescope. You will see Sgt. Fearn, who trained the Galileo ROTC, doing the job while awaiting sufficient service points to get out of the Army and commence working for his degree in journalism. He and I remained friends for the rest of his life. I worked for his P.R./advertising office for a while before going into TV work and, later, finance. He traded in his PR office to take over a client's business for what the client owed him. It became a major travel/entertainment brochure distribution business serving a dozen states and Canada. His son, Patrick, is now the CEO, and he and I are also friends. You will see the Certified Folder Display stands in almost every hotel and motel lobby, restaurants, gas stations, etc. Sgt Fearn was extremely popular with the boys in the Galileo ROTC, and all were happy for his service discharge while sad to see him leave. Fearn served in the Pacific Theater of War and received the Bronze Star for his valor. I regard him as one of the most decent persons I have ever known. There's a lot of other material for newsworthy events to be in your newsletter, including the sad fact that Galileo was, for a time, reduced to serving as a continuation school. That the school survived that downgrade to become an outstanding place of learning is worth trumpeting about! --- Harvey Tepferc:\users\cca\desktop\galileo faculty 1945 (2).jpg

Biography

Alvin Joe


An accomplished transparent watercolor painter of still-life and landscape paintings, Alvin Jo graduated from Galileo in 1956. For over 35 years he has worked in advertising design, illustration and corporate identities which earned him numerous awards and recognition in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Alvin’s passion for art began when he was in grade school in China. He studied fine art and advertising design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a full-time scholarship.

Since his retirement from Graphic Design in the mid-1990s, his paintings were and are accepted by juries locally and nationally. He has accumulated many awards and countless ribbons since resuming his watercolor painting.

A signature member of the California Watercolor Association, in 2007 two of Alvin’s paintings were chosen for Splash 10, a prestige book of watercolor paintings which is published annually by North Light Books.

Alvin has exhibited in Fort Worth, Texas, Monterey, San Carlos (“Best of Show”), California State Fair, Arizona, San Diego, and at the State Capitol in Sacramento, among other places.

Greetings Mighty Lions! Here’s what happening at Galileo these days. . .



BUDGET CUTS UPDATE

As I reported in the April issue, gigantic budget cuts for the entire San Francisco School District are becoming a reality for the 2012-2013 school year. Projected cuts for Galileo total $650,000 (equivalent to cutting 6 teachers). The School Site Council (SSC), a body made up of the Principal, teachers, parents and students, worked hard to come to a final solution on how cuts would be made at Galileo. The final solution resulted in cutting some class in P.E., AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) the Yearbook class, school supplies and two teachers. In all 7 classes will be cut from the P.E. program and one teacher. Prior to the cuts in P.E. class sizes were about 33 students per class, but next year the class size for P.E. will increase to 40 or more students.

The AVID program (a college preparatory program) usually offers eight classes, two for each grade level. Next year there will only be five classes offered—two for 9th grade and one for each of the other grades.

Journalism and Yearbook were on the cut list; however, the final decision is to keep Journalism as a class and Yearbook will be offered as a club.

A reduction in supplies, equipment and field trip opportunities for Galileo students will help save teachers and classes. These reductions helped save the Galileo Band and a piano class and the JROTC program.

One of the factors affecting the funds for the 2012/13 school year is the fewer number of students Galileo will have next year—2,074 students, down from 2.222 students. The San Francisco Unified School District is attempting to balance the number of students at various high schools in the district.



GALILEO ROBOTICS WINS BIG COMPETITION

The Galileo Tech Club won a robotics competition known as “Pioneers in Engineering,” or, PiE, for short. This yearly competition is run by the students in Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honors society at U.C. Berkeley. The object of the competition changes each year. Essentially, this is a competition in which schools from all around the Bay Area enter into and compete in a game. This year the game was called “Ballistic Blitz,” and 20 other schools entered. The competition lasted for 7 weeks.

For this competition, Galileo teamed up with Balboa High School. The final competition day was Saturday, April 14th, 2012, at the Lawrence Hall of Science (UC Berkeley). The Galileo-Balboa alliance won 1st Place and also, won the Judge’s Award: special acknowledgement for excellence in mechanical design and professionalism. The team was also runner-ups for the other 2 awards.

The other schools competing against Galileo-Balboa were: Alcanes, Alameda, Albany, Cal Prep, Berkeley, Bishop O’Dowd, De Anza, El Cerrito, Encinal, Head-Royce, Impact, Lawrence Hall of Science, Lighthouse Community, Lionel, Oakland Tech, Pinole Valley, Ralph Bunche, San Lorenzo.



NANCY PELOSI SALUTES GALILEO’S ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE STUDENTS

On May 13, 2012, Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi met with Galileo’s Environmental Science students at Crissy Field. Nancy Pelosi has been active in the transition of the Presidio of San Francisco from a military post to a park as part of the Golden Gate National Park. Galileo students presented Pelosi with a congratulatory card for her 25 years in the House of Representatives. Pelosi thanked the students and vowed that the card would be on display in her office in Washington, DC. She thanked the students and told them, “You are the dream come true for us.”



GALILEO/GORDOBN J. LAU 2012 Educational Games Project

Galileo’s 11th grade Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) students worked with 5th graders from Gordon J. Lau elementary school to design computer games for the students to learn the 5th grade California Content Standards. This is the 4th annual Educational Games project of AOIT (Academy of Information Technology) at Galileo Academy of Science & Technology. This year, AOIT worked in collaboration with Ms. Strickland’s class at Gordon J. Lau Elementary School. The games are designed to help students learn the 5th grade California Content Standards across a range of different content areas including Mathematics, Science, English Language Arts, and History-Social Science. AOIT’s goal: To make learning so much fun you’ll do it outside of school.

This project was featured on the new Edutopia / Teaching Channel series Tech2Learn

SPRING SPORTS WRAP-UP

Baseball

The Boys Varsity Baseball season ended with 6th place in the AAA and an overall record of 4-6. Kyle Nelson returned as pitcher. Unfortunately the team lost to Thurgood Marshall during the first round of the playoffs.



Softball

The Girls Softball Team finished the season with a 5-8 record in the AAA, taking the 4th place spot. They lost in the semi-finals to Washington.



Volleyball

The Boys Varsity Volleyball team had a very good season in spite of several injuries early in the season. They made it to the championship game against Lowell, but were unable to repeat their championship title. There overall record was 10-2, capturing second place in the AAA.



Track and Field

The Varsity Track and Field Team’s highlight of the season was the team’s overall performance at Warren/Eaton Relays at Acalanes High School in Lafayette, CA. With a majority of the team entering the All City Finals, the future of the team looks very bright. One highlight of the season was drastic improvements made by Nestor Acosta in discus throwing by 20 feet within a week.



Tennis

After having coached the Boys' golf team twenty years ago, Athletic Director and Coach Ethan Winterling came back to co-coach the team once again. Coach Christopher Sklarz who has coached the team the previous four seasons, had after school obligations teaching yoga classes which did not allow him to be present at every match. Coach Winterling's addition to the team brought a new perspective as he had previously coached the Galileo Boys' golf team from 1990-1994. Coach Winterling (*28 years) and Coach Sklarz (*21 years) have been holding down the physical education department at Galileo for more than twenty years with almost 50 years of combined coaching experience. The team's players lacked true golf experience but even so they =picked up the sport quickly and finished with a 500 record.

LETTERS

Each Thursday morning a group of 50 year-olds and over play basketball in Camarillo. There is a difference between 50 and nearly 80 year old men. I am still convinced that as one gets older, one reverts to being a child. Older basketball players would do anything to win; they cry, play dirty, never admit their fouls, cheat, and win at all cost. As soon as the basketball games are over, players change into being nice guys. I wonder if these elderly players watch NBA professional basketball because these seniors would rather shoot than to pass to an open player. I must admit that it is painful moving around because of arthritis, playing defense is impossible because the guy you are guarding whizzes right by you. It is true that the first thing that goes are your legs because a turtle could go much faster. You don’t have to worry about spraining your ankles because jumping half an inch high would make you feel young again. There are many benefits to playing, it gets you out of the house, you do not have to worry about gaining weight, and you sleep like a baby. --- Shigeru Yabu (1951)

Ed. Note: A story about Shig’s early life will appear in the October issue.
