Last week’s Remember When “mystery photo” showed Villalovoz Elementary School Principal Stephanie Germann Prioste and Assemblyman Mike Machado, D-Linden, visiting a Villalovoz classroom in 1997.

Machado was touring schools to determine the effectiveness of state-sponsored educational programs.

Prioste was later the principal at Monte Vista Middle School before retiring in 2006 while continuing to serve as a fill-in principal.

Identifying those in the photo were Nancy Flynn Hopple, Terry Brown and Donna Mizuno.

Today’s mystery photo shows a Tracy restaurant owner at work in February 1989 arranging a plate of cold cuts. Who was he, what business did he and his wife operate, when did it close, and what is going on now at the same location?

If you know the answer or can’t wait until next week to get it, email Sam Matthews at or call 830-4234.
