Arise in residential and auto burglaries iscontinuing in the county and police areseeking the public’s assistance in helpingto curb the trend.Just yesterday as the San Mateo PoliceDepartment was issuing a statement on theuptick in property crimes across the county,police received a call from an observant res-ident on Glendora Drive near theLaurelwood Shopping Center about twomen acting suspiciously as they were driv-ing a white 2000 Honda CRV.“Our officers happened to be conducting aburglary saturation patrol nearby and wereable to heavily saturate the area within a fewminutes,” police Sgt. Dave Norris wrote theDaily Journal in an email.The two men fled before being contactedby police, however. The alert resident tookdown the license plate number and policewere able to determine the vehicle wasstolen, Norris wrote.At about the same time in Redwood City,an observant neighbor noticed a strangerenter a home through a laundry room dooryesterday at about 1:30 p.m. The man fledthe scene before police arrived, however.While the San Mateo Police Departmenthas made a number of recent arrests of resi-dential and vehicle burglary suspects,police continue to see an uptick in propertycrimes across the entire county, Norriswrote.Some of the recent incidents, accordingto San Mateo police, include:

By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Plans to build a temporary fire station — a move towardexploring additional shared services between Peninsulacities — were put on hold after Burlingame and Millbraeresidents at community meetings asked if it was possible tomaintain services the way they are now.San Bruno, Millbrae, Burlingame and Hillsborough gavethe go-ahead to explore shared fire administrative servicesin 2011. One of the first steps was creating a temporary sta-tion which was slated to open in Burlingame later this year.As proposed, the new temporary station is part of a plan toconsolidate two existing fire stations — 2832 HillsideDrive in Burlingame and 785 Crestview Drive in Millbrae.Prior to breaking ground, two community meetings heldin Millbrae and Burlingame in April raised issues that theCentral County Fire Department Board of Directors decided

Driver impaled bymetal pipe in Livermore
LIVERMORE — California HighwayPatrol investigators are hoping wit-nesses will come forward after aSacramento-area an was impaled by ametal pipe that came crashing throughhis car windshield as he drove onInterstate 580 Wednesday morning.Officials say 33-year-old MichaelCox, of Rocklin, was driving west-bound on the freeway near Livermorearound 8 a.m. when the pipe — an inchor 2 in diameter and 2 or 3 feet long —apparently fell off a truck, wentthought the windshield and penetratedhis upper body area.After the incident Cox’s car crashedinto an embankment. When emer-gency crews arrived, they pronouncedhim dead at the scene.CHPinvestigators say since thepipe had no markings or companyname, they don’t think they’ll be ableto find the vehicle unless a witnesscomes forward.
Goat on the lam snarls traffic
JERSEYCITY, N.J. — Agoatbelieved to have escaped en route to aslaughterhouse snarled the morningcommute along one of the busiest road-ways in northern New Jersey onTuesday, leading police on a nearlytwo-hour chase.The small, chocolate brown femalewith curved horns eluded five JerseyCity police officers for more than 90minutes by jumping back and forthover a central divider along the PulaskiSkyway, alternately disrupting trafficalong both east and west-bound lanes,according to city spokesman StanEason.Traffic was snarled from 7:10 a.m.until almost 9 a.m. along the elevatedroadway, which traverses the Passaicand Hackensack Rivers betweenNewark and Jersey City and carriesthousands of vehicles daily to theHolland Tunnel and into New York.Four vehicles, whose drivers wereattempting to avoid the zigzagginggoat, were involved in a minor acci-dent, police said. There were noinjuries.“Acall came in: `There was a motorvehicle accident, and there’s a goat run-ning around on the skyway,” Easonsaid, adding that Jersey City policewere not alarmed. “We had full-sizedbucked deer running around in themetropolis downtown of ExchangePlace about two years ago, before it jumped in the Hudson River and swamto Governor’s Island, so nothing sur-prises us,” he added.The frisky goat eventually tired,Eason said, and officers were able toform a semi-circle around her and secureher in a noose.Officials are still trying to determinewhere the goat came from. One of thegoat’s ears is tagged with a U.S.Department of Agriculture tag, indicat-ing the animal likely escaped a truckheaded to a slaughterhouse, Eason said.If no company claims the animal, it willbe moved to a rural animal welfare facil-ity that can accommodate livestock.“If it can survive running around thePulaski Skyway for two hours, and thenwinds up in a slaughterhouse, it’s kindof sad,” Eason said. “But if someoneclaims her, she is private property, sothere’s not much we can do.”
Thailand urged toexplore edible insect market
BANGKOK — Researchers sayThailand is showing the world how torespond to the global food crisis: byraising bugs for eating.The United Nations’Food andAgricultural Organization released astudy and handbook Tuesday on whatthey call ‘six-legged livestock’— edi-ble bugs and worms that can help meetglobal food demand that is expected togrow 60 percent by 2050. The agencysays they provide a rich source of pro-tein, vitamins and minerals.The study was conducted in Thailand,where insects including crickets,grasshoppers and bamboo worms havelong been a part of diets, especially inrural areas.Entomologist Yupa Hanboonsongsays about 200 insect species are eatenin Thailand. Cricket farming alone isalready a $30 million industry there,but only a few other species have beencommercially marketed.

When Daniel Hu isn’t making waves withone of two swim teams, the El Camino HighSchool senior has spent much of his timepushing himself outside the classroom inmath and science.The 17-year-old, who spent two years of his childhood in Shanghai, started swimmingwith the South San Francisco Aquatic Club at10. Now he’s part of both the competitiveclub team and El Camino’s swim team. On theside, he’s explored higher level math classesat local community colleges and explored sci-ence research projects. Now Hu is preparingto study bioengineering and pre-med atStanford University this fall — an educationthat will set him up to really explore his var-ious interests in research and medicine.“Daniel Hu is an extraordinary student thathas accomplished so much in his short fouryears here at El Camino. Not only did he chal-lenge himself with the most rigorous courseload each year, he also sought out manyopportunities in his community and was ableto balance it all with athletics. He is calmunder pressure, clear with his efforts anddynamic with his intelligence. He will be afantastic addition to any university he choos-es and I am confident that he will succeed inanything he puts his mind to,” said PrincipalDavid Putney.Hu attended Highlands Christian School inSan Bruno through eighth grade. It was duringhis later years that Hu started swimming. Theswimmer, who prefers breast and butterflystrokes, has also been on the El Camino var-sity swim team all four years. His years of spending hours in the water started with sim-ply enjoying swimming. He then met friendsand stuck with the sport. Over his years inswimming, Hu has qualified for the JuniorOlympics and the Far Westerns during highschool. This year, his 200 medley relay teamqualified for Central Coast Sectionals — afirst for Hu who also swam that race with hisyounger brother as a teammate.Hu was quiet when he started El Camino. Hedidn’t know many people at the time, but thatchanged through joining clubs and sports.Community service has kept Hu busy inhigh school. He joined Key Club, a serviceclub through the Kiwanis, freshman year. Thegroup often does one-time helpful activitieslike beach cleanups or feeding the homeless.This year, he’s the club president. Duringsophomore year, Hu added the CaliforniaScholarship Federation — an honor societythat includes offering academic tutoring toother students on campus. He’s ended threeyears in the organization as the president.Also in 10th grade, Hu joined Interact — aservice club affiliated with the Rotary that’staken on projects like raising money for thepeople of Japan after the tsunami. Hu is theclub’s vice president.During the summers, Hu works as a swiminstructor at the pool in Orange Park. Thesummer between sophomore and junior year,Hu also took part in the California StateSummer School for Mathematics and Science,known as COSMOS, at the University of California at Davis. The four-week residentialsummer program allowed Hu to get collegeexperience while conducting science experi-ments alongside college professors.Junior year, Hu began taking classes at theCollege of San Mateo and Skyline College inmath and computer programming simply toexpand his knowledge in those topics. Lastsummer, Hu decided to take his additionalwork further with a research project with thehelp of a mentor. The result was a project thatHu submitted for the Intel Science TalentSearch — the premiere science competitionfor high school students. Hu’s project,“Beyond Timoshenko: Exact Solutions toTwo-Variable Vibration Equations Not Foundin Any Textbooks,” landed him one of the300 semifinalist slots.Next year, Hu is looking forward to takingfull advantage of the opportunities atStanford while exploring bioengineering andmedicine. Hu wants to go to medical schoolbut is not sure if he wants to be a doctor orfocus on medical research.
 El Camino High School’s graduation willbe held 7 p.m. Friday, May 31 at the school’sgym, 1320 Mission Road, South SanFrancisco. Tickets are required.
Great Grads is in its eighth year profiling onegraduating senior from each of our localschools. Schools have the option to partici- pate. Those that choose to participate areasked to nominate one student who deservesrecognition.
