Actually, it looks like they are the *same* list. I haven't gone through 
all of the names, but I spot checked a few, and it looks like yours, 
among others, are listed in both spots. (The southern one looks like it 
is a mislocated duplicate, as it is nowhere close to Mountain View, and 
is stuck in the middle of a golf course.)
