Carl Jones, Laurel School's man of many hats, dies at 62 - The Almanac Online
Minnesota in 1990, he worked in construction.
In an unusual career trajectory, Jones helped build Mountain Mike's Pizza & Pasta in Redwood City, then was asked to stay on as a cook when the building was completed. 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 ... Feb 1, 2020
Deaths for the week of Jan. 10, 2020 - The Jewish News of Northern California
May 31, 1926–Jan. 4, 2020
Cantor Hans Cohn
Cantor Hans Cohn passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 4, 2020 at the age of 93 in Redwood City, California. He led an extraordinary life.
Hans was born on May 31, 1926, in Berlin, Germany. His first years were lived happily with his parents who owned a small women’s clothing shop. As Hitler came to power, his life drastically changed. His synagogue where he attended school was torched on Kristallnacht. As soon as they could, his family escaped to Shanghai, where he lived for seven years. His mother died within five months of their arrival.
During the years in Shanghai (from ages 11 to 19) he experienced hunger, poverty and death around him, yet he still managed to have his bar mitzvah and take singing lessons. He had to drop out of school to get a job, but he learned to be an expert cook, working in restaurants. When the war was over, he stowed away on a ship to Australia. He was caught but managed to slip away and live as an undocumented person under the name Johnny Corn. Finally, he turned himself in and with the help of the Jewish community avoided jail time and was able to leave for the U.S.
In Los Angeles, he worked as a chef until he was drafted into the Army at Fort Ord. As a soldier, he drove the Army bus to take enlisted Jews to a synagogue in Salinas, where he met his wife, Eva, our mother. Once his enlistment was over, they married and remained in Carmel where they opened a gourmet French restaurant, Le Coq D’Or. However, his heart was in music and Jewish life, so he took Eva, who was pregnant, and their two small children to New York to study to become a Cantor. Five years later, after graduation, he spent two years as Cantor in South Bend, Indiana. Then the family moved to Palo Alto, California, where he served as Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomitable will to survive. He married Nina, who has been by his side for 20 years. In all his years, Judaism, service to others and education have been his guiding values.
Hans is preceded in death by his parents, Max and Ida Cohn, and his wife, Eva Cohn. He is survived by his second wife, Nina, and his daughters Becki Cohn-Vargas (Rito Vargas), Ruth Cohn (Michael Lewin) and Barbara Liepman (Michael Liepman), and six grandchildren.
Donations can be sent in his memory to the Hans Cohn Music Fund and CBJ Cares Committee by going to the Congregation Beth Jacob website donation page at bethjacobrwc.org/donate.

Lois E. Flamm
October 1, 1944-June 5, 2019
Dr. Lois E. Flamm, a renaissance woman and pioneer in user-machine interface design, web interface architecture and usability, and in basic eye movement tracking, conspicuity and visual stimulation of electroretinograms and evoked cortical potentials, died under hospice care at the Reutlinger Community in Danville, CA on June 5. She was 74.
Lois E. Flamm
According to Dan, her husband of 53 years, the cause was Lewy body dementia, which she had been fighting since a diagnosis in early 2014.
Several years back, Lois wrote for her Skidmore College class of ’66 history, “Following my junior year, I roomed at Columbia University IHouse (International Student House) at Columbia University. Returning from a date one night, I met Dan Flamm, an MIT student, playing his guitar near a stairwell (Dan had a summer job with Shell Chemical at Rockefeller Center). I dated Dan that summer, before we went to our respective homes for a couple of weeks, met up again in Cambridge, and married at the end of October, 1965. Our first son, Jonathan, was born in Saratoga Springs on May 17, 1966 during my senior year, and our second son Stephen was born three years later in Boston. Dan and I lived in Westgate, MIT married student housing in Cambridge while I was a graduate student at Northeastern University in Boston, and Dan at MIT. Dan jokes that our kids went through college twice, once with us and once without us.”
22-year old Lois’ Northeastern Ph.D. research in experimental psychology used a stimulator, eye movement detection system, and electrodes coupled to a PDP8I computer system to record and process electrophysiological responses to uncover relationships between visual evoked cortical potentials and paced saccadic displacements of stimuli. Later, as a professor at Texas A&M University during 1972-76, also a wife and young mother raising two young boys, she pioneered use of eye movement tracking cameras to investigate factors affecting conspicuity for pilot landing systems while a visiting faculty fellow at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. Her research at Texas A&M spanned a diverse range of fields including perceptual stability, the relationship between eye movements and reversable figures, visual search, visual electrophysiology, and water use and water conservation.

Shop Talk: Bluemercury; Airport Home Appliance; Ruby Rugs; AxeVentures; Ana's Flowers - Berkeleyside
Owsley said. The Berkeley store is currently the smallest showroom for the business.
Airport is in the process of relocating another store in Redwood City pegged to open June 1, as well as a new showroom in San Rafael later this year. All three showrooms will feature “live vignettes” and an elevated experience for customers. “People really want to experience the appliances they are interested in by seeing and touching the product, and in the future at Airport Home Appliance you will even be able to test it”, Owsley said. The Emeryville location, formerly home to General Appliance, will hold a grand opening event and official ribbon-cutting on, or around, July 1. “For 38 years, we have witnessed the demise of independent retailers,” Owsley said. “And the survival of the business really is a testament to the family atmosphere at Airport. We may be a lean company, but we are able to adjust quickly to the market and hold higher standards for all vendors, which in turn results in better service for our Bay Area customers,” she said. “We are proud to be a local Bay Area company!” Airport Home Appliance, 2524 Shattuck Ave., (at Blake) Berkeley, 94704 through May. The store’s new location will be 5815 Shellmound, Emeryville 94608. Tel: 510-549-0800.
Ruby Rugs is coming to the top of Solano Avenue in April. Photo: Suzanne DaleyRUBY RUGS A new handwoven rug store is coming to Solano Avenue, moving into the space that for many years housed Five Star Video, Berkeley’s last surviving video rental store, and more recently was home to Beauty Source. Ruby Rugs will sell rugs from around the world with a particular focus on contemporary, modern and custom-designed rugs. It will also offer cleaning, repair and appraisals. A grand opening party, organized with Luxe Magazine and DC Piano, is slated for April 11. There’ll be music, wine and hors d’oeuvres and donations to the Seva Foundation, a Berkeley charity that helps restore eyesight to underprivileged people in developing countries, will be accepted at the event. (The event is free but registration is required.) “We want to engage the community which is why we are partnering with DC Piano and the Seva Foundation,” owner Husret Abia said. “We are in such a visual business and thus giving someone in need the gift of sight gives us a great feeling.” Rugs will be offered at a 20% discount, and there’s 50% off all cleaning and repairs, through the months of April and May. The 3,000-square-foot showroom will be more like an art gallery than a typical rug store, according to Abia. “Instead of paintings, the walls are adorned with a selection of gorgeous handmade rugs from all over the world,” he said. “We want the rug shopping experience to be beautiful, relaxed and upscale.” Ruby Rugs, 1882 Solano Ave. (at The Alameda), Berkeley 94707.
