Pulling a guest speaker fromNotre Dame High School inBelmont has left former and cur-rent students feeling upset, whilethe administration says the deci-sion was made to protect theschool’s relationship with the gayactivist who an online publica-tion had criticized for workingwith the Catholic school. It all started when “CaliforniaCatholic Daily” posted an itemtaking issue with Catholicschools that host Gregg Cassin, aguest speaker of the school wholectured for the Women inRelationships course for the jun-ior class yearly for more than 20years about self-acceptance. Thewebsite took issue with Cassin’swork outside the classroom, as anactivist for LGBTrights. Cassin was scheduled to talk tothe four religious studies classesin March but, because he has a newwork schedule, could only comefor one of two days scheduled. Theonline post came out betweenCassin’s appearance in March andthis week. Over Easter break,Notre Dame teacher BarbaraSequeira arranged for Cassin tocome back to the school Tuesdayto make up for the missed day,which Head of School MaryannOsmond didn’t find out about untilMonday. Given the publicity, shefelt the best thing to do for thepresent time was to hold off onhaving him back again until nextyear while things settled down.“I made the decision on Mondaythat it would best to wait forthings to die down with the wholecontroversy,” said Osmond, who

Downtown San Mateo’s 231Ellsworth shuts its doors after 28years of fine dining and service. In February, 231 Ellsworth wasstill considering plans to remodeland revise the formal dining roominto a more modern and open spacebut Jeff Barnes, an agent fromIntero Realty representing theowners, said it would have been asubstantial investment. Barnes said the owners decidedthat it was time to close the busi-ness, sell the property and get onwith the next chapter of theirlives.The restaurant was known for itswaiters in white-collared shirtsand black suits serving sophisti-cated dishes such as Osetra caviarand quail egg, venison loin andoxtail ravioli. However, it strug-gled to compete with a crop of newrestaurants that caters to an emerg-ing clientele.“If you just take a walk in down-town San Mateo you can see it haschanged a lot and restaurants needto appeal to more a youngercrowd,” Barnes said.Astaria, another downtown SanMateo restaurant, recently wentthrough a transformation and re-emerged as Three Restaurant andBar, a chic space with an openkitchen and menus on the walloffering items like Brie PhylloPoppers and Braised Oregon cod. Like Astaria, 31st Union, TheAttic and other San Mateo restau-rants are moving with the trend of a less formal atmosphere.Ristorante Cappellini, anotherupscale restaurant, closed inMarch.During the last months leadingup to the closure, 231 Ellsworthmade an effort to revamp the menuand promote Happy Hour by offer-ing bar bites and drinks specials. Chez Rueda, a patron who cele-brated Mother’s Day and otherspecial occasions at 231Ellsworth, was disappointed in theclosure. “What a bummer,” said Rueda.

SAN JOSE California CongressmanEric Swalwell says a teen stowaway who flewto Hawaii in a jet wheel well should neverhave been able to climb the San JoseInternational Airport fence undetected. Swalwell said Friday he’s asking theTransportation Security Administration totest perimeter alert systems at several U.S.airports to see if technology can help pre-vent future breaches. Yahya Abdi of Santa Clara, California,survived the April 20 tripto Hawaii. After touring San Joseairport’s perimeter,Swalwell said no videohas surfaced confirmingthe teen’s claim heclimbed the fence, nor arethere signs of where hewent over. Swalwell says airportofficials told him they already are increasingvideo surveillance.
