Thelda Kothe was an original Rosie the Riveter, helping to build the B-20 bomber at Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica during World War II. She met her husband, Raymond, at the factory and still lives in the San Jose home where they settled and raised eight kids. And Saturday afternoon, at age 95, she was looking forward to dancing to the big band sounds of Swing Solution at the annual Spirit of ’45 Day celebration at History Park in San Jose. She’s missed only one of the events in the past decade, but still wonders how much longer the community consciousness can sustain the memories of struggle during World War II and the unbelievable elation experienced at the war’s end.

Despite raising a little more than half his $5.2 million goal, Mayeri says he’ll start renovations this summer and open in 2015. “We’re confident that we’ll get the support,” he said. “We have some backup plans … and there’s a great positive response from the community.”. The city has stepped up to help, deferring payment for building permits. Mayeri said he’s “in conversation” with the city for additional support but is not ready to reveal details.

But there have been plenty of downs. Raiders owner Mark Davis announced in April that he planned to build a stadium in Las Vegas, opening the possibility that the team could leave during Schaaf’s tenure. Less than a month later, a headline-grabbing scandal broke involving Bay Area law enforcement officers who allegedly had sex or gave confidential information to the teenage daughter of an Oakland police dispatcher. Charges were eventually filed against five Oakland officers. The scandal led to the now-infamous week in which the city had three different chiefs of police, ultimately leaving the force without a leader as the year winds down, and as the department remains under the control of a federal monitor. The chief’s opening is not the only one at this critical time in Oakland. There are no permanent department heads in the building and planning, and information technology divisions.
