The San Carlos City Councilmay consider a significantlyreduced Transit Village project butat least two members want thevote put on pause until after thenewly elected member joins themon the dais.Vice Mayor Mark Olbert andCouncilman Matt Grocott bothbelieve incom-ing councilmanCameronJohnson ratherthanCouncilwomanKaren Clapper,who lost theNov. 5 elec-tion, shouldweigh in on thecontroversial project because itwas a hot-but-ton issue in thecity election. “It was a bigfactor for agood number of voters and,while I don’t atall dispute thecurrent councilhas the legalauthority to make the decision, Ithink it would be highly appropri-ate and the right thing to wait,”Olbert said.Grocott, who has publicly calledthe project too big for the loca-tion around the existing train sta-tion, agrees.“It’s been enough of a campaignissue that it’s respectful to the vot-ers and to the candidates whospent time studying the project,”Grocott said.For those who would argueClapper has spent ample timereadying for the vote, Grocott saidhe would counter that she was inthat position because the councilput her there.

The seeds of innovation havesprouted success.Two months after the San MateoCounty Parks Foundation part-nered with crowdfunding firmCitizinvestor, its plea for $5,400to replant the endangered thorn-mint at Edgewood Park has met itsgoal. “It’s great! Now on to the othertwo projects,” said Julia Bott,executive director of the founda-tion, referencing the thornmint’stwo companion crowdfunding pro-posals.Citizinvestor is a civic engage-ment platform for local govern-ment projects and the parks foun-dation hoped it was a novel way toencourage the community toinvest in their green spaces.Donors could pledge any amountbut were not charged unless thegiven project reaches 100 percentof its funding goal before the dead-line ends. The county’s parks have no ded-icated source of funding and areoften first on the budgetary chop-ping block. The crowdfundingoption is an alternative to tradi-tional fundraising and givesdonors a more personal connec-tion to specific needs. The thornmint’s success means,weather willing, biologists canmake use of the December 2013seeding window and see the plantsflowering next spring. “We know that the investmentthat people have made has paid off because the biologists will bedoing their work this winter,”Bott said.

lthough gold had been taken out of the streams around Virginia City in1850, it didn’t create much excite-ment in San Francisco immediately. The gold tailings were worked when therewas water in the streams that ran east fromMount Davidson, a peak from the VirginiaRange in western Utah Territory. As moreprospecting produced other catches of goldtailings, word spread that there might be abonanza in the hot and forbidding area. Afew took the bait and they left after the goldstrike from Coloma panned out and theywere left high and dry in San Francisco. In 1857, Henry Comstock lucked upon anarea where he and some others found somegold and silver veins that were promisingfor riches. Henry acquired the area after theGrosh brothers died before filing claims.Henry took over the cabin and land andenlarged his holdings by claiming moreland around the cabin after hearing of a goldstrike at Gold Hill. The four miners thatfound the gold, James Finney, John Bishop,Aleck Henderson and Jack Yount, are givencredit for “rediscovering” what became to benamed the “Comstock Lode.”It wasn’t until the spring of 1859 that twominers, Peter O’Riley and PatrickMcLaughlin, staked a claim at the head of the canyon by Gold Hill and made a largerdiscovery of gold and a sticky blue mineralthat turned out to be silver.The rush was on to become rich in thefields of Mount Davidson. This strike wouldnot be the same type as the gold strike inCalifornia turned out to be. Gold doesn’tdissolve like silver therefore gold doesn’ttravel far from its source. Silver, however,combines with other minerals and cannot bepanned out of water like gold is. The silverin Nevada was deep in the ground and neededto taken out by digging shafts that lead tothe silver ore.This costs a lot of moneyand discouraged many would be minersquickly. The big “money people” from otherplaces needed to be found to finance the sil-ver operations.The original miners who found the firstevidence of silver and gold quickly losttheir potential fortunes to men who knew
