The recent announcement thatCity College of San Franciscocould lose its accreditation nextyear means some of its 85,000students may look to neighboringdistricts for their two-year degree.The San Mateo CountyCommunity College Districtalready faces high enrollment.That is a challenge for out-of-areastudents, along with transporta-tion, which means transferring tothe College of San Mateo, SkylineCollege or Cañada College maynot be an easy option.“The students are in a toughposition,” said BarbaraChristensen, director of communi-ty and government relations forSMCCCD.Administrators from the SanMateo County CommunityCollege District were disappoint-ed to learn that CCSF could loseaccreditation next year. The dis-trict is waiting to see if CCSF willin fact be forced to close its doorsnext July before taking any stepsto accommodate an influx of stu-dents, said Christensen.The Accrediting Commissionfor Community and JuniorColleges announced July 3 itdecided to terminate CCSF’saccreditation next year. CCSF isnow appealing that decision.Some CCSF students may chooseto attend a community college inSan Mateo County in the future,but getting around will be difficult.

Thanks to modern medicine,more people are living longer.Living to be 100 years old is notthe rare feat it used to be.According to the U.S. Census, theaverage life expectancy in 1970was 70.8 years, and grew to 78years in 2008. It’s projected to bealmost 80 years old by 2020.In San Mateo County, the popu-lation ages 65 and older is grow-ing rapidly. County service work-ers and nonprofit groups are work-ing to meet the needs of thisbooming group of older adults.They have found that many of them struggle with loneliness andisolation.Feeling lonely can have seriousimpacts on a person’s health, saidDiane Dworkin, mental health cli-nician with the San Mateo CountyBehavioral Health and RecoveryServices.The immune system can beweakened by feelings of isolation,which can also lead to depression,she said.“Social isolation is equivalentto the health effects of smoking15 cigarettes a day,” Dworkinquoted an Australian doctor say-ing.Conversely, making an effort toconnect with the community canboost health.“My high blood pressureimproved without medication,”said Tammy Herrera, 70, who goesto Fair Oaks Adult Activity Centerin Redwood City for line dancing,yoga and gardening. “Our healthimproves due to the company.”There other places you can gofor classes, but you have to pay forit, said Herrera, of Menlo Park.The free yoga and tai chi classesdraw people from faraway places,she said.“I wish there are more placeslike Fair Oaks,” she said, addingthat the center needs more volun-teers to work in the garden.The free classes and affordablehealthy meals allow for peopleliving off of savings or SocialSecurity to engage with their com-munity, she said.

n the 15 years between 1922 and1937, only two ocean-going dry cargofreighters were produced in Americanshipyards. The United States had built2,500 ships in World War I and now theNavy was in shambles.There were but 10 shipyards in the UnitedStates capable of building ocean-going ves-sels 400 feet or longer. The U.S. MaritimeCommission was established in 1936 tooversee and access the needs of the UnitedStates. It, however, did not increase ournaval supply of ships adequately althoughthere was a war brewing in Europe. We hadan order to build 60 ships for England andthey were the antiquated , slow, obsolete,coal-burning ships. Immediately after thewar began, we dropped their contract andconverted those vessels to oil burners thatwere much faster. Our merchant fleet con-sisted of 1,150 vessels.In 1822, William Richardson landed inthe port of Yerba Buena and, when his ship,a British whaler Orion, left, it sailed with-out him. It was believed he deserted his shipbecause he fell in love with the Presidiocommandant’s daughter, Maria AntoniaMartinez. Pablo Vicente de Sola, theMexican governor, granted Richardson per-mission to stay on condition he give les-sons in carpentry and navigation to theyouth of California.He was baptized at the mission and thecouple got married in 1823. They lived atthe Presidio with her father. Their first childwas born April 9, 1826. The year before hereceived citizenship, the family moved tosouthern California —1829. In 1831 and1833, two sons were born.In 1835, Richardson returned to SanFrancisco and built the first structure on theproperty then called Yerba Buena. Franciscode Haro was now alcalde (mayor and judge)of Yerba Buena and he marked the first street,La Calla de la Foundation (literally theStreet of the Founding) that ran from thebeach (now Montgomery Street) to thewest, turned north and continued to thePresidio. The section at the right turn is nowGrant Street. Richardson constructed a homeat what is now the corner of WashingtonStreet and Grant Avenue.Because of his many talents, Richardsonwas appointed port captain by Gov. JoseFigueroa in 1835 and he played a significantrole in the development of the area. He fre-quently served as a pilot on vessels enteringand leaving the harbor. During this time, hedeveloped a lucrative smuggling businessafter he was grantee of the 18,000-acreRancho Sausalito in Marin County (parts of Sausalito and Mill Valley). Richardson Baywas named for him.
