More than 180 people, somefresh from work, some without ahome and many with children,arrive at Monte Diablo Avenue inthe early evening to wait for awarm meal and a kind smile fromSamaritan House volunteers. The charitable organizationbased in San Mateo has had tomove its nightly dining servicesfrom an indoor facility to tem-porarily serving to-go meals atthe Martin Luther King Jr.Community Center. It is now try-ing to find a nearby location thatwill allow it to provide clientswith hospitable facilities.The incredible attendance duringTuesday’s first meal service at theKing Center was proof of the com-munity’s need for food assistance,said Laura Bent, director of pro-grams and services at SamaritanHouse. People started lining up at4:30 p.m. for its 5 p.m. opening;within 20 minutes it ran out of its180 premade chicken, rice andvegetable dinners, Bent said. Samaritan House provides morethan 2,800 free meals everymonth to those in the communitywith its Monday through Friday, 5p.m. to 6 p.m. dining service, saidMarcy Spiker, communicationsspecialist at Samaritan House. Formore than 17 years, SamaritanHouse was able to provide itsclients with indoor seating at theWestside Church, Bent said. Luckily, San Mateo’s Park andRecreation Department stepped upand temporarily placed SamaritanHouse at the King Center when thechurch made alternate plans for thefacility, Bent said. SamaritanHouse is unable to use the indoorportion of the King Centerbecause there are other eventsscheduled during the week, Spikersaid. Although grateful to haveonly moved across the street, thelack of an indoor seating area is adetriment to its clients, Bent said.The seating area providedclients with opportunities tosocialize; it was like a family, saidMario Cousenes, a SamaritanHouse cook who’s been involvedwith the organization for morethan 24 years.

T
he Federal Aid Act of 1956 author-ized President Dwight D.Eisenhower to start building themost up-to-date and impressive road systemin the United States. Eisenhower had justfinished a war in Europe where he found outfirsthand that a country like Germany hadroads superior to any other country. Theirroads reached all parts of the nation and,because of this, they could deliver suppliesin incredibly rapid time. This type of trans-portation system is what allowed the Northto send troops at top speed to Pennsylvaniaand succeeded in many battles against theSouth. This, of course, was the railroad sys-tem that the North had and the South didn’t.Eisenhower saw the same principle at workhere. We needed a better transportation sys-tem to protect ourselves and move com-modities faster.The road system we had in the 1950s hadgrown by hodge-podge. On the Peninsula,El Camino Real began being used in the1770s and wasn’t hardly improved upon fordecades. Bridges were temporary and theroads themselves were impassable in thewinter due to lack of a good surface. Fewroads connected the eastern parts of thePeninsula to the western parts. Eventually,in the 1920s, the Junipero Serra Boulevardwas started but it never was completed toSan Jose as originally planned. SkylineBoulevard was completed section by sectionin the ’20s and wasn’t completed until the’60s. The only good east-west roads thatexisted were Highway 1, Sharp ParkBoulevard, Crystal Springs Road (in SanBruno) and Half Moon Bay Road. Driving
