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 ...

Menlo Park: Flower charity expands operation
Random Acts of Flowers currently delivers flowers as far north as Burlingame and as far south as Sunnyvale, but Kennedy doesn't intend to stop there.
"My job is supposed to focus on fundraising and meeting with large donors and corporations, people who are inclined to support organizations whose mission aligns with Random Acts of Flowers," she said.
Now that the group has a dedicated van, Kennedy is seeking volunteers to drive it once a week to the San Francisco Flower Mart, where Random Acts of Flowers has a relationship with eight wholesalers, and is looking to increase that number.
"It's a big piece of our process here, having that relationship," Kennedy said.
Anyone interested is volunteering with Random Acts of Flowers can get more information at http://tinyurl.com/floweract. The organization is always on the hunt for more vases or unsold bouquets. Donations can be dropped off at its office, 3501 Edison Way, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Email Kevin Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 650-391-1049.
