Get out your seersucker suit and fancy hats because the San Jose Derby party is returning for its fourth run around the racetrack on May 4. After taking last year off, the fundraiser for the Robbie Paine Foundation is back at “Mulcahy Grounds,” the spacious lot behind Aqui and the Garden Theatre on Lincoln Avenue in Willow Glen. A veritable cornucopia of local eateries are contributing to the spread, including Purple Onion, La Villa, Willow Street Pizza and Tomato Thyme. And given that the centerpiece of the 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. party is America’s favorite horse race — the 145th Kentucky Derby — you can count on mint juleps, along with beer and wine. It’s worth the effort to dress the part, too, as there will be competitions for best ladies’ hat and best overall Derby outfits. Scott and Mary Kay Paine started the foundation as a way to honor the memory of their son, who died unexpectedly at age 25 in 2013. The foundation has distributed more than $90,000 to its selected beneficiaries, all causes close to “Robbo,” as he was known: the Willow Glen Education Foundation, Young Life’s Woodleaf Camp and Chico State University. Tickets are available for $100 per person — 21 and up only — along with more details, at www.sanjosederby.com. VALLE VERDE SPROUTS SOMETHING NEW: San Jose nonprofit Valle Verde, which aims to teach more people to grow organic vegetables in their backyards, has its inaugural Seedling Market on April 27 at its demonstration garden. The variety of available seedlings is impressive, with more everyday veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce joined by less-common varieties including Japanese cucumber, Chayote and Thai chili. The market, which will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., will include morning and afternoon workshops on seed germination. There also will be music from San Jose Jazz’s mobile Boom Box Stage and coffee and bites provided by Jaguar Baker, Luna Mexican Kitchen and Oaxacan Kitchen Mobile. The demonstration garden is at 466 W. San Carlos St. in San Jose, and you can get more information about Valle Verde’s programs at www.valleverde.org. FANCY MEETING YOU HERE: Santa Clara County Supervisors Cindy Chavez and Mike Wasserman were at the Pruneyard in Campbell getting mani-pedis at Blossom Nail Spa on Wednesday. Nope, this wasn’t some new Board of Supervisors perk but a fun part of a new campaign to get more of the region’s 850-plus nail salons to use safer products and provide better ventilation for workers and customers. Blossom Nail Salon owner Linda Do was the first to sign onto the Healthy Nail Salon Recognition Program. DANCE ALL DAY: It’s National Dance Week, and that means that more than 60 Bay Area dance groups again will be showing off their moves April 27 at the 17th annual Spring Dance Festival, a eight-hour, nonstop program hosted by sjDANCEco. This free event — which features kids as young as 3 and dance styles from the hula to hiphop — is being held this year at the indoor Center Court at Eastridge Center in San Jose. The showcase kicks off at 11 a.m., with professional dancers performing from noon to 1 p.m., and it’ll close with Choreproject, a choregraphers’ competition from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. You can check out the lineup of groups in between at www.sjdanceco.org. SWEET ART ON DISPLAY: If you haven’t been by the Simply Smashing Boutique in downtown Campbell lately, owner Deb Rohzen‘s window display is showcasing artist Charlotte Kruk‘s “Marie Antoinette & All Her Cakes” exhibition, including a collection of handmade ceramic “cupcakes” and an amazing gown made out of recycled C&H sugar bags. Fans can also meet Kruk at a closing reception for the display taking place April 27 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 241 E. Campbell Ave.

History of Knowledge

The first major text printed with movable type, the Gutenberg Bible (1454) symbolizes early print. Although this and other early printed books have long interested scholars, librarians, and collectors, many questions remain unanswered. For starters, how exactly did printing know-how spread from one town to the next? Who sold and transported the books from the […]

Whether we like it or not, a part of us thinks life can go on forever. It’s the one guaranteed ego trip everyone takes. There’s a limitless vanity that we attach to our lives, thinking death can never find us. A ruthless urge to believe in the next day that creates a deception inside of […]

by Michael McKay Minors cannot legally consent to sex, ever. Not with adults, not with each other, and especially not with their teachers, who are entrusted by parents with a special degree of responsibility for their students. Whenever sex occurs between a teacher and his or her student, it is a crime. There is a […]
