Plans for a temporary fire stationin Burlingame will go before thePlanning Commission Monday forreview — a step toward testingshared fire services among fourcities.San Bruno,Millbrae,Burlingameand Hillsborough gave the go-aheadto continue exploring shared admin-istrative services in 2011. One of the first steps was creating a tempo-rary station,which is expected toopen this summer. Under the pro-posal,stations on Hillside Drive inBurlingame and Crestview Drive inMillbrae would be closed. A newstation would then be placed some-where within the three-mile dis-tance between the two stations.Plans to build such a station at 1675Skyline Blvd. in Burlingame will bereviewed by the PlanningCommission Monday. Once built,the station will be a test run for apossible long-term agreementbetween the cities for shared fireservices.“It is recognized that moving afire station requires a level of cer-tainty that current fire service stan-dards can be maintained orimproved. Fire department staff,city staff and various elected offi-cials have had many discussions onthe feasibility of consolidating firestations to reduce costs while keep-ing the trust of the communities weserve,Fire Chief Don Dornellwrote in a March 8 letter to thecommunity. “The involved agencies

‘Alive with Pleasure,’Sami Kaddoura’s latest book of poetry,explores the idea of contentment and enjoyment of life.
By David Wong
Poet Sami Kaddoura’s San Mateobackyard is very much like the manhimself:tranquil and modest.An overhang holds a laundry linewith a few towels thrown uponthem. Lawn chairs are placedaround a small coffee table coveredby an orange tablecloth. On thetable there are an assortment of fruit,vegetables,coffee and ciga-rettes. The sun pierces through theoccasional break in the foliage —cherry blossom petals routinely fall.Though the setting of his NorthCentral San Mateo home is serene,he admits yard and home mainte-nance often takes a back seat.Kaddoura professes that most of hislife has been spent doing “officework,”such as accounting andtranslating. He laughs heartily whenhe admits he has no idea what’sgoing on in his house.“Alive with Pleasure,”his latestbook of poetry,explores the idea of contentment and enjoyment of life.“It’s very important to me for any-body to believe that (they are) goingto live with pleasure as much as(they can),Kaddoura said.Kaddoura began as a playwrightbecause of his love for theater andfolk singing. He had trouble gettinghis work published “for reasons outof hand.”“So I came to the (United) Statesstill writing some plays,but finally Ifound ... the way is closed,there’sno way (I can write) plays any-more,Kaddoura said.He arrived in the United StatesJan. 15,1981 and began his careerin writing poetry in 1981.

While farms no longer make many localheadlines,agriculture is quite important to SanMateo County’s history.Today,less than 1 percent of the workers inSan Mateo County are in agriculture,accord-ing to the 2010 U.S. Census. But,according tothe 1880 U.S. Census,960 individuals of the8,700 living in San Mateo County owned orleased their own farms. Next week,the SanMateo County History Museum will unveil itsnewest changing exhibit,“Plowing Ahead:Historic Peninsula Farming,”focusing on theimportance of agriculture locally.“San Mateo County was the original breadbasket for San Francisco,said Mitch Postel,San Mateo County Historical Associationpresident.The two-room exhibit,which will be on dis-play for 18 months,includes some pieces thatwill be on display for the first time. Whilethere are opportunities for people to get ahands-on feel for things like creating a knot orchurning butter,visitors will also get to seefirst-hand two types of Knapp Side-Hill Plows,which were developed in Half Moon Bay,andhorse-drawn farm equipment fromRunnymede Farm in Woodside that has beenmeticulously restored by architect AdolphRosekrans,then donated to the museum.Curator Dana Neitzel explained how manyof these pieces were new inventions created inSan Mateo County. The Knapp Side-HillPlows,for example,were created because R.I.Knapp found himself often repairing plowswhich weren’t made to easily go back andforth on a hillside. With many hillside farmslocally,his design allowed for the plow to havestronger,steel pieces and work on a hillside,which created a family business,Neitzel said.Equipment on display showcases tools usedin a variety of types of farming — from dairyand grain to grapes and potatoes. In the secondroom,a collection of lithographs of Peninsulafarms by Grafton Tayler Brown,the first black artist in California,in the late 1800s give anidea of what was grown and from where thefamilies originally came. Few farmers of thattime were actually from the area. Many hadtraveled west or even emigrated from othercountries.Most of the images were created in 1878 forthe book “Moore & De Pue’s IllustratedHistory of San Mateo County.Twenty-two of these pieces will be on display along withanother six lithographs drawn by artists JosephBritton and Jacques Rey for the same book.
The San Mateo County History Museum,2200 Broadway in Redwood City,is open 10a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults,$3 for seniors and students,free for members and children 5 and under. For more information visit www.histo-rysmc.org or call 299-0104.
