Carl Jones, Laurel School's man of many hats, dies at 62 - The Almanac Online
He eventually became the restaurant's manager before leaving to work on construction projects in the Burlingame Elementary School District.
Jones began working at Laurel in 1994, according to the district.
"Carl was most noted for his charismatic personality and the wearing of many fun and different hats, while performing his duties as a crossing guard at Ringwood and Edge roads," according to the school's memorial announcement. "He was a wonderful person who will forever live on in our memories."
Jones started wearing a tall, red and black Dr. Seuss hat for his crossing guard duties because he wanted to make sure motorists would see him and the children, according to a past Almanac article. His collection of outlandish hats, from wizard to cowboy to Cat-in-the-Hat, swelled to over 100, and were stored in the school's multi-use room.
Outside of his regular school duties, Jones donated a barbecued rib dinner to the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation's annual auction that, over the years, generated about $100,000 for the school community, said Shari Conrad, a member of the foundation in 2009. He shared his cooking skills with Laurel staff – making them "delicious, tender spareribs," school staff said.
Jones told The Almanac in 2001 that his interest in cooking grew from watching his mom, a single parent, cook.
According to the school announcement, Jones appeared on the program "Dirty Jobs," a TV series on the Discovery Channel hosted by Mike Rowe, featuring working people with difficult or messy jobs.
Jones is survived by his partner of 31 years, Fran Corbit, his mother Mary Moore Madison, and his siblings.
The Feb. 14 memorial was held at Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo. In lieu of flowers, his family requests that donations be made to the Nine Lives Foundation in Redwood City, a nonprofit cat rescue organizati... Nov 28, 2018

GARDEN BRUNCH EDITION -- TRUMP revives Latino activism – POOL REPORTS from WHCD party circuit -- B'DAYS ...
--“Protests delay but don’t derail Trump in California,” by Alex Isenstadt and California Playbook author Carla Marinucci in Burlingame, Calif.: “The scene, broadcast live from a news helicopter, followed massive protests Thursday at a Trump rally that drew 30,000 people in Costa Mesa. Friday’s protest forced Trump to delay his speech by more than an hour. His motorcade could not approach the venue, instead pulling to the side of a highway. Seeking an alternative entrance to the hotel, the candidate climbed a grassy incline surrounded by Secret Service agents.” http://politi.co/1SEqVKz
S.F. CHRONICLE p. A1, “Demonstrations: Front-runner’s foes clash with backers outside gathering”:
--“Burlingame rally: Trump seeks unity as he courts state’s conservative core,” by Joe Garofoli and John Wildermuth: His “plea for unity [was] delivered Trump-style, salted with insults about ... ‘Lyin’ Ted’ Cruz and ‘1-for-48’ ... Kasich [plus] occasionally accurate braggadocio about his lead in the polls and accusations that the GOP nominating system is ‘rigged.’” Paywall http://bit.ly/1TBQRJe
“Demonstrations: Front-runner’s foes clash with backers outside gathering,” by Kimberly Veklerov and Kale Williams: “Trump was forced to abandon his motorcade on the side of a freeway, scramble up a hillside and slip into a side entrance of the hotel hosting the California GOP convention ... as hundreds of angry protesters surrounded the building ...
“Trump joked about his roundabout entrance to the convention, saying it felt like he was ‘crossing the border’ ... [D]emonstrators outside ... scuffled with police, threw eggs and blocked roads around the Hyatt Regency.” Paywall http://bit.ly/1VFk49E

INSIDE THE CAMPAIGNS -- “Clinton gears up for Trump in fall race,” by AP’s Lisa Lerer, Julie Pace and Ken Thomas: “Clinton campaign employees are being deployed to battleground states across the country, among them Ohio, Florida and Colorado. Democrats are also eyeing the possibility of making a run at traditionally Republican-leaning states such as Georgia, North Carolina and Arizona, calculating that Trump's penchant for controversy could put minority and female voters in play. ... Aides from the primary are getting general election marching orders.
“Simone Ward, political director of the campaign committee for Senate Democratic races, will run Clinton's Florida operation. Emmy Ruiz, who led a crucial Nevada primary win for Clinton, will handle Colorado. Mike Vlacich led New Hampshire operations in the primary and will do the same in the fall. ...
“The search for a running mate is being overseen by campaign chairman John Podesta and Clinton confidante Cheryl Mills, both of whom will help cull the list down to a handful of names in the coming weeks. Clinton advisers are debating whether it's more important to select a strong liberal champion from the Rust Belt to woo Sanders backers and cut into Trump's advantage with working-class white men, or to acknowledge her support among minority voters with a more history-making pick.” http://apne.ws/1TB0mIE
SCOOP DU JOUR -- “Jolly had fundraiser scheduled days after ‘60 Minutes’ story,” by Jake Sherman: “On ‘60 Minutes’ Sunday, Rep. David Jolly [R-Fla.] spent an entire segment decrying members of Congress’ obsession with campaign fundraising and touting his bill to ban them from personally soliciting campaign cash. But on Friday, just five days after the piece aired, Jolly had a fundraiser scheduled in Washington ... [T]he event [was] canceled.” http://politi.co/24c3iUx ...

Lily Rosalind Ketteman Patrick
Flushing, Long Island, New York and to the Philippines, Japan, Fiji, Australia, Canton, Bombay, Wake Island and Guam from her homes in Burlingame and San Mateo, California.
She met her husband, James K. Patrick, in San Francisco. They married in Flint, Michigan, on February 14, 1955, honeymooned in Aspen, Colorado, and moved to Alexandria, Louisiana, where Jim finished his medical degree at Tulane.
When the couple took up residence in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Lily began her life as a mother, her dearest occupation and passion in life. Her communication and logistics skills were perfected as she managed music, dance, sports and other assorted activities of her children. Her creative research resulted in amazing education and travel experiences for the family. Her refined social skills supported her husband’s medical practice and hosted decades of family and friend events, outings, campouts, ski trips, hikes and other “expotitions,” in the words of Pooh. In her work at the University of Arkansas Agriculture and International Departments, she became the first person in the family to become computer literate.
In 1988 she and Jim retired and moved to Aspen, Colorado, where she lived until his death in 2006, when she moved to Glenwood Springs, Colorado. She would often hike or snowshoe up to the summit of her favorite mountains in the morning and be home for lunch by noon. She mastered all new technologies in order to follow world affairs and the activities of her children and grandchildren. Her first watercolors captured the detailed delicacy and vibrant colors of poppies, peonies and sunflowers.
Lily leaves a legacy of life-long learning, appreciation of nature and world exploration. She volunteered at school, public and special libraries throughout her life and for the Red Cross during Hurricane Wilma. She played the violin, refurnished furniture and pursued courses in German, stained glass, photography, watercolor, Outward Bound, skydiving and flying, ultimately receiving her pilot’s license.
She adored nature, from national parks and treks in the Himalayas to the splendor of all the flowers, trees, birds and gardens on her block in Glenwood Springs. She explored 39 states in the USA, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, Alaska, Nepal, Greece, Dominican Republic, Austria, Belize and Germany. She connected he... (Glenwood Springs Post Independent)
