Last week, Cody Wilson, the
25-year-old head of Defense
Distributed, became the first per-
son to successfully fire a bullet
from a handgun made from a 3-D
printer. The anarchist posted his
gun design online for the public to
download. Wilson’s actions have
prompted government officials to
State Sen.
Leland Yee, D-
S a n
Franci sco/ San
Mateo, is pro-
posing legisla-
tion to require
b a c k g r o u n d
checks “at the
very least” for
i n d i v i d u a l s
p r o d u c i n g
firearms from 3-D printers.
“It’s outrageous,” said Yee.
“Any criminal or terrorist can go
out and make these guns.”
Yee plans to try to regulate the
printing of these homemade guns,
but said if that does not work, he
will try to ban them altogether.
“These guns are not traceable,
there is no serial number,” he said.
“The individual that makes the
guns should go through some kind
of background check.”
Currently, California law would
only require someone to be
licensed if they were selling the
printed guns, said Yee.
Individuals making their own
guns with 3-D printers are not
legally required to go through
background checks or register
their guns. Unregistered guns
would make it more difficult to
solve crime, said Yee.
“There would be no way of hold-
ing criminals accountable,” he
said. “We’ve got to link a person
to the weapon.”
Yee is also concerned about
security screenings. Metal detec-
tors at Transportation Security
Administration checkpoints
would not detect plastic guns, he

SACRAMENTO — In response
to a federal court order, Gov. Jerry
Brown pushed a novel approach
through the Legislature two years
ago to dramatically reduce
California’s prison population.
People convicted of felonies
that were considered non-violent,
non-sexual and non-serious would
serve their sentences in county
jails rather than state prisons.
Once released, they would be
supervised by local probation offi-
cers instead of state parole agents.
The shift in California’s penal
system, referred
to as “realign-
ment,” is one of
the nation’s
largest criminal
justice experi-
ments and has
done its job in
at least one
respect: The
population in
the state’s 33 adult prisons has
dropped so much that the system
now ranks second to Texas in the
number of inmates, even though
Texas has 12 million fewer resi-

Bringing the Burlingame
Downtown Specific Plan to life
requires input from residents —
which city officials are seeking
during a second community meet-
ing Wednesday, May 22.
In 2010, the Burlingame City
Council adopted the Burlingame
Downtown Specific Plan, which
provides the framework for the
business area. Later this month,
the city will sponsor the second in
a series of workshops for stake-
holders to explore and identify
opportunities and options for par-
ticular aspects of downtown
Burlingame. The workshops repre-
sent a continuation of the city’s
efforts to implement the policies
of the Burlingame Downtown

Doing city business in San
Carlos could be getting more
expensive if the City Council
signs off on fee adjustments that
would bring in about an extra
$604,000 annually.
The city currently recovers
approximately 68 percent of the
cost of user and regulatory fee-
related services. If the council ever
adopted a 100 percent recovery
policy, the city would bring in an
additional $1.1 million but
Administrative Services Director
Rebecca Mendenhall wrote in a
report that there are “many eco-
nomic, political and behavioral
reasons” why that isn’t recom-
mended. The city doesn’t study its
fees annually but Mendenhall said
that it needs updating now because
the council opted to move from
department to program/perform-
ance-based budgeting.
Some of the fees on the schedule
can’t be configured purely for cost
recovery because they are limited
or set by other authorities, such as
towing service or how much can be
charged for returned checks.
Some fees like photocopies
remain unchanged at 25 cents per
page while others dropped such as
the hourly rate for Building
Division work from $177 to
New fees being recommended to
the council include:
• California Environmental
Quality Act needs including miti-
gated negative declarations and
environmental impact reviews is
recommended at actual cost with a
$5,000 deposit;
• CEQA staff management and
review is recommended at actual
cost with a $3,000 deposit;
• Design review is recommended
at 50 percent of cost, particularly

Seth Meyers to replace
Jimmy Fallon late at night
NEWYORK — Seth Meyers is mov-
ing from his “Weekend Update” desk
to his own late night show on NBC.
The network said Sunday that the
12-year “Saturday Night Live” cast
member will replace Jimmy Fallon at
the 12:35 a.m. “Late Night” show
next year. Fallon is moving up an hour
as Jay Leno’s replacement on the
“Tonight” show.
Meyers was considered the lead can-
didate for the “Late Night” job ever
since Fallon’s promotion was
announced. The announcement solidi-
fies Lorne Michaels as the comedy
kingmaker at NBC. He’ll be the execu-
tive in charge of “Late Night,”
“Tonight” and “Saturday Night Live,”
which will all originate from New
York’s Rockefeller Center.
Meyers, 39, has been the head writer
at “Saturday Night Live” for eight sea-
sons. He’s in his seventh year as
“Weekend Update” host, to which he
devotes all of his on-air time now.
And like Fallon before him, Meyers
is making the move from “Weekend
Update” to “Late Night.”
“We think Seth is one of the bright-
est, most insightful comedy writers
and performers of his generation,”
said Bob Greenblatt, NBC entertain-
ment chairman. His topical comedy is
“perfect for the ‘Late Night’ fran-
chise,” he said.
The late-night
show began with
David Letterman in
1982, and its other
hosts have been
Conan O’Brien and
Meyers is a
N o r t h w e s t e r n
University graduate
and began his com-
edy career in Chicago. His chief tele-
vision competition will by Craig
Ferguson on CBS and “Nightline” on
ABC. Like television in general, the
late-night audience has dispersed in
several directions, with DVR viewing
of shows taped earlier a big alternative
at night.
Late-night comedy is one of the
NBC’s few strong suits, with
“Saturday Night Live” often drawing a
bigger audience than most of what the
network airs in prime-time. Wi t h
Meyers’ appointment, NBC is hoping
for a smooth transition to a younger
‘Idol’ judges drama
upstaging competition
LOS ANGELES — The ratings are
down. Randy Jackson is out. Mariah
Carey and Nicki Minaj are still at it.
All is not well on TV’s once domi-
nant “American Idol,” despite a shake-
up at the beginning of this season that
was supposed to rejuvenate the aging
Fox talent competition. Instead, the
front-of-the-scenes drama continues
to cast a shadow over the series, right
up to Thursday’s coronation of
“Idol’s” 12th season champion.
Jackson’s declaration last week that
he was departing the show means pro-
ducers could plan a proper send-off for
the lone remaining original judge this
week, much the same way they did for
Simon Cowell during the ninth season
finale in 2010. However, ‘the fates of
the other three judges remain uncertain
amid reports they’re out, too, and Fox
and “Idol” producer FremantleMedia
aren’t commenting.
It’s oh-so-familiar territory for the
show, whose panel has revolved like
an amusement park carousel since the
addition of songwriter Kara
DioGuardi at the beginning of the
eighth season in 2009. The will-
they-or-won’t-they speculation
sparked publicity for years, but many
viewers — the ones who are left, any-
way — have seemingly grown tired of
the guessing games.
“It’s a disservice to the talent on
the show,” said Lyndsey Parker,
Yahoo’s music editor who writes
about “Idol” and other televised
singing competitions on the
“Reality Rocks” blog. “I’m quite
fatigued by all the emphasis on the
judges, especially when they step
down or aren’t asked back or whatev-
er, and the speculation begins about
all the potential replacements.”

n 1912, Contract #1 was issued for the
paving of El Camino Real from Orange
Avenue in South San Francisco to San
Mateo. In front of the ever-popular and well-
patronized Uncle Tom’s Cabin roadhouse, the
project of paving El Camino Real was begun
by the state.
El Camino Real: In 1776, after much pre-
liminary exploration along the Peninsula, a
mission outpost was erected at the northern
tip, Mission Dolores, and at the southern
end, Mission Santa Clara. The two missions
were within a day’s travel by walking if the
trip was begun early in the morning. Fields,
meadows, sand, solid and loose dirt, mud,
creeks and willow marshes had to be traversed
to reach the missions in either direction. The
creeks full of water and treacherous in the win-
tertime, proved to be the greatest challenge.
The easiest path, along the foothills in many
places, became well established in the fol-
lowing years.
Mission Dolores’ agricultural outpost in
San Pedro Valley (Pacifica) met with wide-
spread disaster in the early 1790s. Measles
and other infectious diseases decimated the
Indian population and put a halt to its use as
the “breadbasket” for the mission in San
Francisco. The flat area along the Bay was
ideal for raising cattle and growing food and
the church put its effort now into using the
section around San Mateo for crops. There
was abundant water available, flat expanses
and transportation to the missions over the
well-established Mission Road (El Camino
Real) was much easier. The Indians who were
to be taught farming were moved to the area
and used as laborers until they could attain the
skills necessary to till their own land (That
was the original avowed plan of the church.
Much time passed, however, before any
Indians obtained this promised land).
Although church records have been lost, all
indications are that in 1793 or 1794 a 22- by
147-foot granary was built by San Mateo
Creek along the trail from Mission Dolores to
Mission Santa Clara. This first granary was
erected at the site of the Moraga campsite on
the south side of San Mateo Creek. This was
destroyed in an 1808 earthquake. Crude wood-
en bridges were built to span the deep and trou-
blesome creeks that flowed out from the hills
to the west. As wagons and, later, stagecoach-
es became more common, the bridges would
require a lot of care and repair when they
washed out or were damaged by use. Much time
was spent by travelers getting around these
barriers, and over the years these obstacles to
travel created the need for rest stops. Some of
them developed into roadhouses, such as
Uncle Tom’s Cabin (the 14-Mile House) that
served the public for a hundred years.
In the early 1900s, this main route was
given the name of El Camino Real (the
“Royal Road”). A vestige of the early mis-
sions, it was a symbol of the nostalgic past
to Mrs. A. S. C. Forbes of Los Angeles. Early
in the 1900s, she became an avid devotee of
the new craze, the automobile. Travel in these
days meant taking off across the country on
roads that were little more than unimproved
paths, often severely rutted and without signs
that indicated businesses or directions to
towns. After an exasperating trip from Los
Angeles to the San Francisco Peninsula that
found her frequently confused by directions or
taking the wrong roads in her search for the
ruined missions, she vowed to do something
to aid future travelers on El Camino Real.
Whoever first used the name El Camino
Real is lost to history, but it was an apt des-
ignation for the time-honored path that had
been blazed in the 1700s by the explorers
who traveled up and down California’s coast.
It became a lifeline between the missions.
Daly City/John Daly Avenue: John Daly
was a true individualist who developed a
splendid reputation for generosity and kind-
ness to a community. By 1911, the city was
ready to incorporate and, remembering the
good and generous deeds of John Daly, the
city was named for him.
Easton Avenue (Burlingame): Ansel Ives
Easton was one of seven children, and his
brother was Aschell Samuel Easton who
became the San Mateo County surveyor in the
1860s. Aschell married Georgette Tilton of
San Mateo. Ansel migrated to California in
1852, after the initial Gold Rush had subsided
but he nevertheless made much money in the
booming real estate market, along with other
business dealings. He married Darius Ogden
Mills’ sister Adeline, for which Adeline Creek
in Burlingame is named. When Jose Antonio
Sanchez died in 1843, the southern 1,500
acres were purchased by Ansel Ives Easton,
and north of him, his brother-in-law D.O.
Mills bought 1,500 acres. Eventually the two
families would own almost 8,000 acres of the
original 15,000-acre Rancho Buri Buri.

By David A. Egan
John Dresser’s goal is to provide a
healthy hot meal to the deprived children
and senior citizens in San
Mateo County. The
Hometown Hunger Hero
nominee has been mak-
ing great progress
addressing the issue
through his contribu-
tions with Second
He just turned 70 and
shows no signs of slow-
ing down.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara
and San Mateo counties is devoted to ending
local hunger by ensuring that anyone who
needs a meal can get one through its 300
nonprofit agencies. Of those 300 agencies,
Dresser works with Brown Bags, Kids Now
and Family Harvest.
Dresser, with the help of several volun-
teers, packages and distributes food every
Tuesday to the disabled senior citizens in
San Bruno, Daly City and South San
Francisco. At 7:30 a.m., the first truck
arrives at the Mater Dolorosa parish with
the food.
“I help unload and set up in the back,”
Dresser said.
Asecond truck arrives right after with the
brown bags. Once everything is unloaded,
“the packers start packing and then we all
gather to say a prayer,” he said.
At around 9 a.m., Dresser and the volun-
teers start their deliveries.
What makes the deliveries worthwhile is
“that you really build a relationship,”
Dresser said.
Unfortunately, he can only stay a few
minutes since he has 250 deliveries to do in
about two hours. The people are very wel-
coming, he said.
“We are the only people they see in a
week,” he said.
These senior citizens are stuck at home
and their children live out of state.
“They start telling you they are not aware
of the programs available to them and we
carry around a San Mateo County Handbook
for doctor services, housing, whatever it
is,” Dresser said.
They are grateful for the information, he
said, adding he appreciates he can at least
put a smile on their faces.
Dresser first volunteered with St. Vincent
de Paul at St. Veronica’s parish, but he
noticed the program could use more regular-
i t y.
“We encouraged people in need once a
month or five weeks to call and saw that
they needed food on a weekly basis,” he
He along with Mary Beaudry, Brown Bag
supervisor, came up with the idea of Brown
Bag Second Harvest, which would deliver
groceries every Tuesday. The next step was
trying to find a bigger spot.
At that time, Margarita Lee was working
at St. Veronica’s and approached Father
Rolando de la Rosa from the Mater Dolorosa
Dresser said. Father Rolando obliged.
Since its inception on April 15, 2008, the
deliveries have grown from 60 to 250 deliv-
eries of brown bags.
Along with the Brown Bag program, Lee
started the Kids Now program after she saw
a classroom full of juvenile delinquents at
the Boys & Girls Club instead of a high
school. According to Lee, the children had
done some time for stealing food, because
they were not getting enough meals at
home. She wanted to meet the needs of hun-
gry children and families by providing
them with free nutritional food to take
“Many families come on Tuesday to pick
up food so they could distribute it to the
kids and John has been a major help with
that,” she said. Every Tuesday, John has
been a major contributor to both programs
at the Mater Dolorosa Parish as he delivers
and packages food. About 150 families
receive fresh produce, milk, dairy, eggs, and
some kind of meat and canned goods,
Dresser said.
With all that he has done for his commu-
nity, Dresser feels he has accomplished his
goals so far.
“It makes me feel good that I see people
getting the goods,” he said. “It has done
wonders for me and has made me believe

Man hospitalized
in garage shooting
Police in San Bruno are investi-
gating a shooting that hospital-
ized a Redwood City man Friday
Officers responded to a report of
a shooting at 1125 Cherry Ave. at
about 4:25 p.m., police said.
Upon arriving, the officers found
several people treating a man who
was suffering from apparent gun-
shot wounds in the garage of the
home, according to police.
The victim, 29, was transported
to a hospital to be treated for his
injuries, but his condition is
unknown, police said.
Witnesses told police they heard
shots coming from inside the
garage and saw a white car leaving
the area immediately following
the shooting, police said.
There is no known motive for
the shooting, but investigators
believe the man who was shot was
targeted, police said.

Police search for suspect
in skateboard assault
Police are asking for the pub-
lic’s help in locating a suspect
who beat and seriously injured a
driver following a car crash in
Pacifica last month.
Police said officers responded to
reports of the assault at the
Fairmont Shopping Center, off of
Hickey Boulevard, around 11:55
p.m. on April 27.
The victim and suspect had been
involved in a car crash on south-
bound state Highway 35 near
Hickey Boulevard prior to the
assault, according to police.
After the crash, the two drivers
went to the Fairmont Shopping
Center to exchange personal
While the victim was getting
documents from his car’s glove
box, the driver of the other vehi-
cle struck him with a skateboard,
police said.
Police said the suspect used the
skateboard to strike the victim in
the head and face multiple times,
causing serious injuries.
Police said the suspect is
described as a young black man
between 17 and 23 years old who is

LOS ANGELES — Every time Los
Angeles exhales, odd-looking gadgets
anchored in the mountains above the
city trace the invisible puffs of carbon
dioxide, methane and other greenhouse
gases that waft skyward.
Halfway around the globe, similar
contraptions atop the Eiffel Tower and
elsewhere around Paris keep a pulse on
emissions from smokestacks and auto-
mobile tailpipes. And there is talk of
outfitting Sao Paulo, Brazil, with sen-
sors that sniff the byproducts of burn-
ing fossil fuels.
It’s part of a budding effort to track
the carbon footprints of megacities,
urban hubs with over 10 million peo-
ple that are increasingly responsible
for human-caused global warming.
For years, carbon dioxide and other
greenhouse pollutants have been
closely monitored around the planet
by stations on the ground and in space.
Now, scientists are eyeing large cities
— with LAand Paris as guinea pigs —
and aiming to observe emissions in
the atmosphere as a first step toward
independently verifying whether local
— and often lofty — climate goals are
being met.
For the past year, a high-tech sensor
poking out from a converted shipping
container has stared at the Los Angeles
basin from its mile-high perch on
Mount Wilson, a peak in the San
Gabriel Mountains that’s home to a
famous observatory and communica-
tion towers.
Like a satellite gazing down on
Earth, it scans more than two dozen
points from the inland desert to the
coast. Every few minutes, it rumbles to
life as it automatically sweeps the
horizon, measuring sunlight bouncing
off the surface for the unique finger-
print of carbon dioxide and other heat-
trapping gases.
In a storage room next door, com-
mercially available instruments that
typically monitor air quality double as
climate sniffers. And in nearby
Pasadena, a refurbished vintage solar
telescope on the roof of a laboratory
on the California Institute of
Technology campus captures sunlight
and sends it down a shaft 60 feet below
where a prism-like instrument sepa-
rates out carbon dioxide molecules.
There are plans to expand the net-
work. This summer, technicians will
install commercial gas analyzers at a
dozen more rooftops around the greater

PETROLIA — More than 70 law
enforcement officers were part of the
ongoing hunt Sunday for a Northern
California man wanted in the killing
of his wife and two young daughters.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s
Department said SWAT teams from
three counties, federal officials and
local police continued to search
through the rugged terrain of
California’s remote North Coast for
Shane Franklin Miller.
On Saturday two helicopters and an
armored vehicle joined the effort.
Miller, 45, is suspected of slaying
his family Tuesday night in the rural
community of Shingletown, then flee-

Miller — who is considered armed
and extremely dangerous — grew up in
the area and knows the thick forests of
the region very well, officials said.
Authorities were searching for
Miller through a wilderness area, much
of it federal land, with poor roads and
limited access.
Area residents were being asked to
report any break-ins or other unusual
activities. They were also being asked
to stay inside once night falls and to
keep their doors locked.
Investigators have recovered
Miller’s pickup truck after it was found
abandoned Wednesday night near
Petrolia, about 200 miles west of the
home that Miller shared with his wife,
Sandy, 34, and daughters, Shelby, 8,
and Shasta, 5.
There have been no sightings of
Miller since the truck was found, offi-
cials said.
Report: Bridge base rods can’t be easily inspected
OAKLAND — More than 400 seismic safety rods that
may be vulnerable to cracking or breaking are embedded in
the base of the new San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and
may be difficult to inspect, remove or replace.
The 424 threaded rods are among more than 2,000 on the
$6.4 billion span that the California Department of
Transportation recently realized are vulnerable to being
invaded by hydrogen. That could cause them to become
“These are going to get added scrutiny,” Caltrans
spokesman Will Shuck told the newspaper. “We’re going to
make 100 percent sure they are safe.”
The rods are intended to counter the swaying forces on
the tower during an earthquake. Caltrans officials said the
rods are not being subjected to a high stress load, which
they say reduces the risk they could crack.
SF ballpark concession workers authorize strike
SAN FRANCISCO — Concession workers at the AT&T
Park where the San Francisco Giants play have voted to
authorize a strike.
Members of Local 2 voted 500 to 16 on Saturday to OK a
strike, but one is not imminent. The union says it’ll wait to
see how South Carolina-based concession company
Centerplate Inc. responds.
Cashiers, cooks, food vendors and others voted before
and after the Giants’ win against the Atlanta Braves.
They’ve been working without a contract for three years.
The union says the two sides have been bogged down
over money issues and management’s refusal to guarantee a
contract would be enforced even if the Giants replaced the
concession company.

CLEVELAND — Three women
rescued from a house a decade after
they disappeared said Sunday that
they are happy to be home and
pleaded for privacy so they can
heal and reconnect with their fam-
An attorney for the women also
said they are extremely grateful for
the support of family, law enforce-
ment and the community.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus,
and Michelle Knight remain in
seclusion and released their first
statements since they were found
May 6 after Berry escaped and
called 911.
Ariel Castro is suspected of
imprisoning the women inside his
house for nine years or more,
allowing them outside only a few
moments, and raping them. ADNA
test also confirmed that Castro
fathered a 6-year-old girl who
Berry gave birth to in the house.
The girl escaped the house with
Castro is being held on $8 mil-
lion bond. The 52-year-old former
school bus driver was charged with
four counts of kidnapping and
three counts of rape.
The women, now in their 20s
and 30s, vanished separately
between 2002 and 2004. At the
time, they were 14, 16 and 20
years old.
Attorney Jim Wooley read state-
ments attributed to all three
Knight, who was the first to dis-
appear and the last of the three
released from the hospital, said,
“Thank you to everyone for your
support and good wishes. I am
healthy, happy and safe and will
reach out to family, friends and
supporters in good time.”
Berry added: “Thank you so
much for everything you’re doing
and continue to do. I am so happy
to be home with my family. ”
And DeJesus, the youngest of
the three, said: “I am so happy to
be home, and I want to thank
everybody for all your prayers. I
just want time now to be with my
family. ”
The Associated Press does not
usually identify people who say
they are victims of sexual assault,
but the women’s names were widely
circulated by their families, friends
and law enforcement authorities for
years during their disappearances
and after they were found.
The attorney for the women said
none of them will do any media
interviews until the criminal case
against Castro is over. He also
asked that they be given privacy.
“Give them the time, the space,
and the privacy so that they can
continue to get stronger,” Wooley
Castro was represented at his
first court appearance Thursday by
public defender Kathleen Demetz,
who said she can’t speak to his
guilt or innocence and advised him
not to give any media interviews
that might jeopardize his case.
Castro’s two brothers, who were
initially taken into custody but
released Thursday after investiga-
tors said there was no evidence
against them, told CNN that they
fear people still believe they had
something to do with the three
missing women.
Onil and Pedro Castro said
they’ve been getting death threats
even after police decided to release
them. Pedro Castro said he would
have turned in his brother if he had
known he was involved in the
women’s disappearance.

WASHINGTON — The seasoned
diplomat who penned a highly
critical report on security at a U.S.
outpost in Benghazi, Libya,
defended his scathing assessment
but absolved then-Secretary of
State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“We knew where the responsibili-

“They’ve tried to point a finger
at people more senior than where
we found the decisions were
made,” Pickering, whose career
spans four decades, said of
Clinton’s critics.
The Accountability Review
Board, which Pickering headed
with retired Adm. Mike Mullen,
the former chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, did not question
Clinton at length about the
attacks but concluded last
December that the decisions about
the consulate were made well
below the secretary’s level.

WASHINGTON — In roughly 75
hours of arguments at the Supreme
Court since October, only one
African-American lawyer appeared
before the justices, and for just
over 11 minutes.
The numbers were marginally
better for Hispanic lawyers. Four
of them argued for a total of 1 hour,
45 minutes. Women were better
represented, accounting for just
over 17 percent of the arguments
before the justices.
In an era when three women, a
Hispanic and an African-American
sit on the court and white men
constitute a bare majority of the
nine justices, the court is more
diverse than the lawyers who
argue before it.
The arguments that took place
from October to April were pre-
sented overwhelmingly by white
men. Women and minority lawyers
whose clients’ cases were heard by
the court were far more likely to
represent governments or be part
of public-interest law firms than in
private practice, where paychecks
are much larger.
The numbers generally reflect
the largely white and male upper
reaches of the biggest and richest
private law firms, where there have
been small gains by women and
minorities in the past 20 years. A
recent survey by the Association
for Legal Career Professionals
found that more than 93 percent of
partners in law firms are white and
nearly 80 percent are men.
The statistics from the court
term, though, also reveal a lack of
African-American and Hispanic
lawyers in the elite Justice
Department unit that represents
the federal government at the
Supreme Court.
The top supervisory positions
in the Office of the Solicitor
General all are held by men,
though there are six women in the
office who argued high court cases
this term.
The office serves as a pipeline to
the big firms that dominate the
argument calendar at the court.

LAHORE, Pakistan — Former
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz
Sharif looked poised Sunday to
return to office with a resounding
election victory — a mandate that
could make it easier to tackle the
country’s daunting problems,
including growing power outages,
weak economic growth and shaky
government finances.
Questions remain, however,
about Sharif’s stance on another
key issue: violent Islamic extrem-
ism. Critics have accused his
party of being soft on radicals
because it hasn’t cracked down on
militant groups in its stronghold
of Punjab province.
That could be a concern for the
United States,
which has

Pakistan for
years to take
stronger action
against a vari-
ety of Islamic

groups, espe-
cially fighters

As unofficial returns rolled in
Sunday, a day after the election,
state TV estimates put Sharif
close to the majority in the
national assembly needed to gov-
ern outright for the next five
years. Even if he falls short of
that threshold, independent candi-
dates almost certain to swing in
Sharif’s favor would give his
Pakistan Muslim League-N party a
ruling majority.
That would put the 63-year-old
Sharif in a much stronger posi-
tion than the outgoing Pakistan
People’s Party, which ruled for
five years with a weak coalition
that was often on the verge of col-
Pakistan suffers from a growing
energy crisis, with some areas
experiencing power outages for
up to 18 hours a day.
That has seriously hurt the
economy, pushing growth below
4 percent a year. The country
needs a growth rate of twice that
to provide jobs for its expanding
population of 180 million.
Ballooning energy subsidies
and payments to keep failing pub-
lic enterprises afloat have steadily
eaten away at the government’s
finances, forcing the country to
seek another unpopular bailout
from the International Monetary
Fund. Pakistan also has an inef-
fective tax system, depriving the
government of funds.
Sharif, the son of a wealthy
industrialist, is seen by many as
more likely to tackle the coun-
try’s economic problems effec-
tively because much of his party’s
support comes from businessmen.
He is also expected to push for
better relations with Pakistan’s
archenemy and neighbor India,
which could help the economy.
The Pakistan People’s Party was
widely perceived to have done lit-
tle on the economic front.
“Anything better than zero and
you have already improved on the
PPP’s performance in terms of
managing the economy,” said
Cyril Almeida, a columnist for
Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper.
The former ruling party was
soundly beaten in Saturday’s elec-
tion. Sharif’s party was leading in
contests for 127 seats, just short
of the 137 directly elected seats
needed to form a majority, state
TV said.
The PPP was ahead in contests
for 32 national assembly seats, a
significant drop from the 91 seats

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis on
Sunday gave the Catholic Church new
saints, including hundreds of 15th-century
martyrs who were beheaded for refusing to
convert to Islam, as he led his first canon-
ization ceremony Sunday in a packed St.
Peter’s Square.
The “Martyrs of Otranto” were 813
Italians who were slain in the southern
Italian city in 1480 for defying demands by
Turkish invaders who overran the citadel to
renounce Christianity.
Their approval for sainthood was decided
upon by Francis’ predecessor, Benedict XVI,
in a decree read at the ceremony in February
where the former pontiff announced his
Shortly after his election in March,
Francis called for more dialogue with
Muslims, and it was unclear how the granti-
ng of sainthood to the martyrs would be
received. Islam is a sensitive subject for the
church, and Benedict stumbled significantly
in his relations with the Muslim communi-
t y.
The first pontiff from South America also
gave Colombia its first saint: a nun who
toiled as a teacher and
spiritual guide to indige-
nous people in the 20th
With Colombia’s
President Juan Manuel
Santos among the VIPS,
the Argentine pope held
out Laura of St. Catherine

source of inspiration to the country’s peace
process, attempted after decades-long con-
flict between rebels and government forces.
Francis prayed that “Colombia’s beloved
children continue to work for peace and just
development of the country. ”
He also canonized another Latin American
woman. Maria Guadalupe Garcia Zavala, a
Mexican who dedicated herself to nursing
the sick, helped Catholics avoid persecu-
tion during a government crackdown on the
faith in the 1920s.
Also known as Mother Lupita, she hid the
Guadalajara archbishop in an eye clinic for
more than a year after fearful local Catholic
families refused to shelter him.
Francis prayed that the new Mexican
saint’s intercession could help the nation
“eradicate all the violence and insecurity, ”
Rain disrupts salvage work
in Bangladesh collapse
DHAKA, Bangladesh — Search teams
resumed their rain-interrupted work Sunday
as the death toll from the collapse of a
Bangladesh garment factory building con-
tinued to climb past 1,100.
Overnight rainstorms had halted the recov-
ery efforts, but by late morning the teams were
back at work using hydraulic cranes, bulldoz-
ers, shovels and iron cutters as they continued
looking for bodies more than two weeks after
the eight-story building collapsed.
“We are still removing the rubble very
carefully as dead bodies are still coming
up,” said Maj. Moazzem Hossain, a rescue
team leader. “The dead bodies are decom-
posed and beyond recognition.”
Hossain said they are trying to identify
the bodies by their identity cards. “If we get
the ID cards with the bodies then we are
lucky,” he said.
Refugees face uncertain
future as Myanmar opens
Since the day she was born, 20-year-old Naw
Lawnadoo has known almost nothing of the
world beyond the fence and guard posts that
hem her in with 45,000 others — ethnic
minorities from Myanmar and those like her
who were born and raised in the Mae La
refugee camp in neighboring Thailand.
School, family, friends, shopping and
churchgoing — many of the refugees are
Christian — have all been confined to a val-
ley of densely packed bamboo-and-thatch
huts huddled under soaring limestone cliffs.
Now, she and other camp residents face a
future that will dramatically change their
constricted but secure, sometimes happy
lives. With the end of 50 years of military
rule in Myanmar, aid groups are beginning
to prepare for the eventual return of one of
the world’s largest refugee populations —
some 1 million people in camps and hide-
outs spread across five countries.

keepers they abducted last week in a dramat-
ic incident that prompted warnings from the
Philippines that the nation might pull out
its contingent from the Golan Heights.
Meanwhile, a Syrian official said

right to enter the Israeli-occupied Golan
whenever they wish — a veiled threat
toward Israel to stay out of Syria’s conflict.

The Monterey County Herald
hree California legislators
have teamed up to try to stop
their colleagues from stripping
the text out of legislation and replac-
ing it with unrelated verbiage, prevent-
ing any real scrutiny.
Not surprisingly, the proposed con-
stitutional amendment has met with
resistance from other legislators —
especially the kind of legislators who
would prefer their constituents not
know what really goes on in
The corrective legislation would
require that Assembly and Senate bills
be in print at least three days before
going to a vote. But in one of the
weakest arguments ever offered, a staff
report from the Assembly Budget
Committee complains the three days
could kill enthusiasm for important
legislation and allow those crafty lob-
byists to do their dirty work.
“This time can allow the resolve for
action to dissipate, and special inter-
ests can exert pressure and work to
block carefully crafted agreements,”
the committee report, offered in defi-
ance of history and common sense.
We’re talking about three days.
Three days for the public, the press,
watchdog groups and everyone else to
take a look. As opposed to the status
quo, which provides for zero days.
As it stands, bills struggling for
support are simply stripped of their
language and new text is inserted on a
different topic. The practice intensifies
in the closing days of the legislative
session, when “gut-and-amend”
becomes standard procedure. Examples
include new language that provided for
accelerated review of for large con-
struction projects, such as a proposed
NFL stadium in Los Angeles and an
amended bill that delayed collection of
sales taxes from online retailers.
The switcheroos prevented environ-
mentalists from studying the impact of
the construction bill and stopped
brick-and-mortar retailers from weigh-
ing in on the tax measure.
“Some things slip through the
cracks, mistakes are made, too many
laws lead to unexpected consequences,”
said state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis,
who introduced the reform bill along
with Assembywoman Kristin Olsen, R-
Modesto, and Mark DeSaulnier, D-
The Senate version of the bill is
SCA10 and the Assembly version is
ACA4. Either would need a two-thirds
vote in the Legislature to get onto a
public ballot in the fall. It is a very
good bill that deserves widespread sup-
port. New York requires a three-day
review period for all bills and Hawaii
requires two.
The public has made it clear that it
wants an end to backroom deals and to
legislation written by and for the ben-
efit of moneyed special interests. Our
legislators have ignored public senti-
ment, however, and now seem to be
doing most of their business outside
public view. In fact, it shouldn’t shock
anyone if this attempt at transparency
isn’t hijacked and turned into legisla-
tion meant to keep the public even
more in the dark.
Law seeks an end to gut-and-amend
It’s early, but
election season
heating up
elmont’s veteran and outspoken councilwoman (sez
it like it is) Coralin Feierbach says she won’t run for
another term. Somehow, Belmont won’t be the same
without her. She has served for more than 14 years, some of
them turbulent. Meanwhile two cities with eight-year term
limits will lose well-known and outstanding councilmembers
— Gina Papan in Millbrae and Pam Frisella in Foster City.
Papan may run again in two
years. That seems to be the
custom in Millbrae. Frisella
says she will not. Both
leave unfinished business
and their expertise will be
lost. Twelve-year term lim-
its make sense, but not
eight. These limits make it
more difficult for coun-
cilmembers to serve on
regional and county boards.
One of the reasons Papan
lost her bid to serve on the
Transportation Commission
was that she would be termed
out in the fall. Term limits
in some cities but not in all mean that some councilmembers
keep serving on the same boards and commissions while
cities with them (Foster City, Millbrae, San Mateo, 12
years; Redwood City, 16 years) cannot.
In Millbrae, the sudden tragic death of Vice Mayor Nadia
Holober, who was expected to run for re-election, means
there will be two open seats. Incumbents in other cities
are expected to run again in the fall although a few are still
in the deciding stage. Filing deadline is August. Longtime
Redwood City Councilman Jeff Ira will also be termed out.
Who will fill these open seats is still a work in progress.
But here are some of the names floating around. In
Belmont, incumbent Warren Lieberman is expected to run
again; Dave Warden is still deciding. Several potential
contenders include Eric Reed, a former planning commis-
sioner who ran before and lost; Gladwyn D’Sousa, a plan-
ning commissioner and bicycle advocate; Kristin Mercer,
planning commissioner; and Mike Verdone, real estate
broker. In Foster City, incumbent Charles Bronitsky is
running and newcomer Gary Pollard, chair of the Parks and
Recreation Commisttee, will run for Frisella’s seat.
In Redwood City, incumbents John Seybert and Jeff Gee
are running. There is much interest in Ira’s open seat
including Ernie Schmidt who ran and lost for the Board of
Supervisors and is chair of the Planning Commission;
Corrin Rankin, small business owner; and Diane Howard,
former councilwoman.
In San Mateo, David Lim and Robert Ross have already
declared. Brandt Grotte hasn’t made his decision yet. If he
decides not to run there is no shortage of people who may be
interested. Cliff Roberts, Parks and Recreation commission-
er; Rick Bonilla, planning commissioner; Joe Goethals, for-
mer public works commissioner and currently on the Board of
Directors of the Peninsula Healthcare District; Josh Hugg,
planning commissioner; Anna Kuhre, San Mateo United
Homeowners; and Lindsey Held, a young mom and Silicon
Valley executive. If Grotte decides to run, these wannabes may
want to wait two years when Jack Matthews is termed out.
Here are potential city council races in the fall for cities
with no term limits. In Burlingame, incumbents Ann
Keighran and Michael Brownrigg will probably run.
Councilwoman Cathy Baylock said she would not after her
last close election but may feel her preservationist view is
In San Carlos, incumbents Bob Grassilli and Matt Grocott
will probably run although they have not publicly said so.
Karen Clapper, who was appointed by the council to fil l
Andy Klein’s seat, was asked not to run in the fall but many
in the community feel she has turned out to be a very capable
and valuable member of the council and hope she will.
Meanwhile Inge Tiegel Doherty, a former councilwoman, has
expressed interest as well as Cameron Johnson who is on the
city’s Economic Development Advisory Commission.
South San Francisco may turn out to be one of the most
interesting cities to watch. There is a long list of potential
candidates lining up in addition to the incumbents. Karyl
Matsumoto, Mark Addiego and Pedro Gonzalez, all longtime
councilmembers up for re-election, have not yet declared.
One or more of them may go for the two-year term created
when Kevin Mullin left for the state Assembly. Pradeep
Gupta, who was appointed to fill Mullin’s seat, wants to run
for a four-year term. Here are the names floating around as
possible contenders: Three planning commissioners, Carlos
Martin, Rich Ochsenhirt and Alan Wong; Liza Normandy,
school board member; John Trouty, former planning com-
missioner; and Mark Magales, who works in the office of
U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo. There are three four-
year positions on the ballot and one two-year.
Both the incumbents and other possible candidates will
be keeping theirs ears open as to whom will actually file.
Most incumbents probably will, with the notable excep-
tion of Coralin Feierbach. After 14 action packed years,
she’s ready to let go.

conomic conditions in Europe,
especially in troubled nations
like Spain, Portugal and Italy,
have deteriorated sharply in recent
months. Worse, new data released last
week provides no hope for a recovery
soon. The unemployment rate in the 17
countries that use the euro hit a record
of 12.1 percent in March, up from 11
percent a year earlier. In Spain and
Greece, more than half of the labor
force under 25 is looking for work.
The good news, if it can be called
that, is that a barrage of negative eco-
nomic data appears to have stirred
European leaders and senior officials at
the International Monetary Fund into
finally acknowledging that the
Continent’s austerity policies are
imposing unnecessary pain and suffer-
ing on average Europeans while doing
little to lower debts and deficits.
Josi Manuel Barroso, the president of
the European Commission, recently
declared that austerity “has reached its
limits in many respects.” And David
Lipton, the first deputy managing direc-
tor of the I.M.F., recently called on
Europe to adopt “more growth-friendly”
policies and encouraged the European
Central Bank to use unconventional
measures like bond purchases to
increase credit and stimulate the econo-
my. This awakening is fine as a start.
But real change will come when
European leaders start reversing damag-
ing budget cuts and restructuring their
fragile banks. That means changing the
status quo, no easy task. For starters,
countries that use the euro have com-
mitted to maintaining fiscal deficits no
higher than 3 percent of their gross
domestic product as part of a “fiscal
compact” with one another. ...
Meanwhile, a promising effort to deal
with troubled banks appears to have
been sidetracked or at least slowed. In
December, the European Union agreed
to centralize the supervision of large
banks under the European Central Bank
by March 2014 as a first step toward a
banking union. But Wolfgang
Schduble, the finance minister of
Germany, recently suggested that E.U.
members first renegotiate changes to
the union’s treaties to clearly separate
the monetary and supervisory functions
of the central bank. Wrangling over
technical amendments could easily
delay the broader effort to put the whole
financial system on sounder footing.
At a meeting later this month in
Brussels, E.U. leaders plan to discuss
ways to improve the currency union,
but they do not anticipate changing
basic policies. In fact, analysts expect
no major action until after Germany’s
national elections in September. The
conditions of 26.5 million unemployed
Europeans who need help right away
should not depend on an election that
may or may not change anything.

Response to
‘Anti-social hoarding?’
Jorg Aadahl lives in the wrong
county and I hope he just moves else-
where if he does not believe that pri-
vate money is just that — it is private
and earned by the person or entity
who has it.
Jorg, in his “Anti-social hoarding”
letter to the editor in the May 8 edi-
tion of the Daily Journal, suggests
that it is anti-social to decide what
you do with your money and invest it
the way you deem fit, which includes
leaving it stashed under your mattress
to keep all those sticky fingers from
stealing it or taxing it.
On the one hand, we want people to
be really successful, and Silicon
Valley is the temple of that religion.
On the other hand zealots like Aadahl
feels that this is unfair, not in line
with what he would like to see and
what he believes is the future of socie-
t y. I think Aadahl is the ideal candi-
date to travel to Mars and assist in
setting up a new human colony out
there. And, let me be the first person
to wish you all the best on your trip

NEW YORK — When the price of gold
plunged $200 last month, many people
thought they caught the sound of the gold
bubble popping.
What Peter Schiff, the CEO of brokerage
Euro Pacific Precious Metals believes he
heard was a stampede of fair-weather specu-
lators fleeing the precious metal.
Schiff and other champions of gold
weren’t shaken by the plunge. To them it
was just a short breather in preparation for
another long climb.
All the reasons they give for buying gold
haven’t changed: Gold remains a refuge
from disaster, they say, arguing that a steep
drop in the dollar and a spike in the price of
consumer goods are a threat.
For speculators, buying gold was simply
a way to profit from its popularity.
“That’s what happens in a bull market,”
Schiff says. “The selloffs shake out the
Johnny-come-latelies. It’s healthy. Now we
can have a real rally. ”
Gold, often touted as the most trustwor-
thy of investments, has looked wild over
the past month. After starting April above
$1,600 an ounce, it dropped below $1,361
on April 15 and has steadily recovered to
settle at $1,436 on Friday.
Gold was supposed to be a haven from tur-
moil. When the housing market started
cracking and the stock market sank in
2007, the price of gold began to surge. Over
the next two years, it soared from around
$600 an ounce to nearly $900 in the depths
of the financial crisis in late 2008.
For those who were wary of financial
institutions or thought the Federal
Reserve’s rescue efforts would backfire, it
became the favored investment. The televi-
sion personality Glenn Beck advised his
audience to stock up on gold bars in case the
dollar became worthless. The tea party
called for a return to linking the value of the
dollar to the price of gold.
“People treated gold like the cure for
everything,” says James Paulsen, chief
investment strategist at Wells Capital
Management in Minneapolis. “If you were
worried about a depression, buy gold. If you
were worried about inflation, buy gold.”
If fear of economic collapse started the
gold rally, greed accelerated it. By 2009,
speculators and others looked to ride gold’s
popularity. Hedge funds and other big
investors piled in.
Anxiety and gold prices kept climbing in
tandem. Right after Standard & Poor’s
stripped the U.S. of its top credit rating in
August 2011, the price peaked above
Instead of buying gold bricks and stash-
ing them in their basement, many hedge
funds and big investors turned to buying
gold exchange-traded funds, which trade on
markets like stocks. The most popular
offering, the SPDR Gold Trust, attracted big
investors like John Paulsen, who made bil-
lions betting on the mortgage meltdown,
and George Soros.
As money poured in, the SPDR Gold Trust
grew into the second-largest largest
exchange-traded fund behind the SPDR S&P
500, which follows the stock market. And
its supply of gold swelled from 780 metric
tons at the start of 2009 to 1,353 metric
tons in December.
But now it looks like the fast-money has
soured on the yellow metal. George Soros
slashed his stake in the SPDR Gold Trust fund
by 55 percent at the end of last year, accord-
ing to the most recent regulatory filing.
Judging by the numbers, it looks like
others decided to jump out of the market at
the same time. Hedge funds and big
investors pulled $8.7 billion out of gold
funds last month, according to EPFR
Global, a firm that tracks where big
investors put their money.
EPFR says it was the biggest monthly
withdrawal out of gold funds since the firm
started collecting data in 2000. The SPDR
Gold Trust unloaded 12 percent of its gold in
April, selling 146 metric tons.
There’s no single destination for all the
money rushing out of gold, says Cameron
Brandt, EPFR’s director of research. The
most popular places for investors now are
real estate funds, junk bonds, emerging-
market bonds and stocks in big companies
that pay dividends. One clear trend that
Brandt sees is investors pulling cash out of
the safety of money-market funds in search
of something better. Some of that money
appears to be trickling back into the U.S.
stock market.
So where’s gold headed next?
The answer depends partly on where you
think inflation is headed. At one extreme,
Schiff and others in his camp believe the
Fed will eventually let inflation loose and
gold will hit $2,000.
“They’re going to print and print until
money is worthless, or they run out of
trees,” Schiff says. “I think people will
look back at this time period and think,
‘Wow, what a great opportunity.”’
Others see no reason for gold to resume
its climb. They point to a recent academic
study that said current consumer prices
imply a gold price below $800 an ounce.
Gold forecasts from Wall Street banks sit
somewhere in the middle.
Has the gold rush come to an end?
By Matthew Daly
WASHINGTON — A domestic
natural gas boom already has low-
ered U.S. energy prices while
stoking fears of environmental
disaster. Now U.S. producers are
poised to ship vast quantities of
gas overseas as energy companies
seek permits for proposed export
projects that could set off a
renewed frenzy of fracking.
Expanded drilling is unlocking
enormous reserves of crude oil and
natural gas, offering the potential
of moving the country closer to
its decades-long quest for energy
independence. Yet as the industry
looks to profit from foreign mar-
kets, there is the specter of higher
prices at home and increased man-
ufacturing costs for products from
plastics to fertilizers.
Companies such as Exxon
Mobil and Sempra Energy are
seeking federal permits for more
than 20 export projects that could
handle as much as 29 billion cubic
feet of natural gas a day.
If approved, the resulting export
boom could lead to further increas-
es in hydraulic fracturing, a
drilling technique also known as
fracking. It has allowed compa-
nies to gain access to huge stores
of natural gas underneath states
from Colorado to New York, but
raised widespread concerns about
alleged groundwater contamina-
tion and even earthquakes.
The drilling boom has helped
boost U.S. natural gas production
by one-third since 2005, with pro-
duction reaching an all-time high
of 25.3 trillion cubic feet last
year, according to the U.S. Energy
Information Administration.
In recent months, however, pro-
duction has begun to level off as
the glut of natural gas keeps U.S.
prices down. In response, produc-
ers have begun pushing to export
the fuel to Europe and Asia, where
prices are far higher.
Approval of all the projects cur-
rently under review by the Energy
Department could result in the export
of more than 40 percent of current
U.S. production of liquefied natural
gas, or LNG, which is gas that’s been
converted to liquid form to make it
easier to store or transport.
The prospect of a major expan-
sion of U.S. gas exports has tanta-
lized business groups and lawmak-
ers from both parties, and they’re
urging the Obama administration
to move faster to approve the
projects as a way to create thou-
sands of jobs and spur economic
growth. Increased exports also
would help offset the nation’s
enormous trade deficit.
But consumer groups and some
manufacturers that use natural gas
oppose expanded exports, saying
they could drive up domestic
prices and make manufacturing
more expensive.
Plans to export U.S. natural gas stir debate
Relentless thief taking
crawfish traps in Tahoe
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — It’s not that easy to catch
crawfish in Lake Tahoe. Turns out, it may be harder to keep
Tahoe Lobster Co. owner Fred Jackson says someone’s
been stealing his traps ever since he launched Tahoe’s first
commercial crawfish harvest operation last year. Since fall,
160 traps have gone missing at a loss of more than $21,000,
he said.
Jackson suspects it’s a disgruntled fisherman who fears the
crawfish are a necessary food supply for trout and other sport
fish. But he says the 4,500 pounds of crawfish he pulled from
the lake last year put less than a 1 percent dent in Tahoe’s
overall population, which one expert estimates to total
about 7 million pounds.
“This year it hurt us pretty bad. We’ve sunk everything we
had into this business,” Jackson told the Tahoe Daily
Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/cyur7f3).
“What these guys are doing is craziness. It leaves me
speechless. If they hit me again, it’s not sustainable. I’m
about ready to throw down the towel. I don’t know what to
do,” he said.
Another four sets of 10 traps disappeared late last month
from their location off Tahoe’s northeast shore near Incline
Village, Jackson said. Last week, he moved them from their
previous location between the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe
Resort, Spa and Casino and Sand Harbor to a spot further
south in the waters off Skunk Harbor.
Jackson knows the traps are being stolen because he marks
their location with a GPS and aligns the traps with landmarks
on the shore.
“It’s someone who thinks he’s a superhero, the X-Man of
the sport fishing community,” he said. “They think they’re
saving the trout fishery. ”
Talisa Fiame’s 2-RBI single in the bottom of the 7th sends CSM to Bakersfield

Because of the infinite ways to
describe the how and why behind
the College of San Mateo softball
team’s latest win — the one send-
ing them to the California
Community Colleges Athletic
Association’s Final Four for the
first time since 2000 — there is
one word that captures it best.

eight runs in just three innings of
You won’t believe that the
Bulldogs were down 8-2 after
those three innings following a
couple of huge, back-breaking
fielding errors — mistakes com-
pletely atypical of the CSM style
of play this season.
You won’t believe that the
College of San Mateo roared back
to tie the game 8-8 only to see the
upstart West Valley Vikings tack
on four runs and take a 12-8 lead
into the bottom of the seventh

that CSM mounted an epic five-run
rally in the bottom of that sev-

MVP of the postseason — Talisa

OAKLAND — His spirits down, his left
ankle limp and his team’s season hanging
in the balance, Stephen Curry wondered
whether he could recover for the biggest
game of his career until a text message
popped up on his phone around 2 a.m.
Curry called back his mother, Sonya, and
vented his frustrations about his latest —
and most inopportune — injury setback.
Finally, she spoke up to calm his concerns.
“She just reminded me and battled tested
me to rely on my teammates and support,”
Curry said.
What followed was a Mother’s Day mas-
Curry scored 22 points to go with six
rebounds and four assists on a bum ankle,
rallying the Golden State Warriors past the
San Antonio Spurs 97-87 in overtime
Sunday to even the Western Conference
semifinal at two games apiece.
“It seems like every time you get on a roll
and feel somewhat healthy there’s a set-
back,” said Curry, who shot 7 of 15 from the
floor, including 5 of 10 from 3-point range.

The Central Coast Section base-
ball seedings were released Saturday
and San Mateo County will have its
fair share of representatives. Seven
Peninsula Athletic League teams
made the cut, as did Serra, Menlo
School and Sacred Heart Prep.
The good news for the PAL i s
seven teams received bids — five
Bay Division squads and a pair of
Ocean Division teams. The bad news
is not one of them received a seeding
higher than No. 9, which belongs to
19-7 Terra Nova, and all will be on
the road for first-round games.
Carlmont (20-6), which got the
No. 10 seed in Division I, will face
No. 7 Homestead (17-13).
Somehow, Homestead, which fin-
ished second in the Santa Clara
Valley Athletic League’s De Anza
Division, will host a division
champion in the Scots, despite the
fact CCS usually awards division
winners with a home game.
The other Bay Division team to
make the Division I field was Menlo-
Atherton (17-10), which was on the
bubble to make the field after finish-
ing fifth in the Bay Division. The
14th-seeded Bears will travel to No.
3 San Benito (21-6).
Apair of local squads will face off
in another Division I game when
No. 15 Sequoia (16-10-1), the
Ocean Division co-champion, will
make the short trip to San Mateo to
take on No. 2 Serra (24-6), a West
Catholic Athletic League regular-
season co-champion, which also
advanced to the WCAL tournament
championship game.
The Carlmont-Homestead winner
will play the Sequoia-Serra winner
in a quarterfinal matchup Saturday.
All Division I first-round games
begin 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Division II has Burlingame (17-
9), the runner-up in the Bay
Division standings, going on the
road to play No. 4 Los Gatos (20-7).
The winner plays the winner of No.
12 Los Altos (16-14) and No. 5
Willow Glen (17-10).
Mills (13-11), the other Ocean
Division co-champi-
on, got the No. 16 seed
and will face top seed
Westmont (19-8). That
winner plays the win-
ner of No. 9 Leland
(14-12) and No. 8
Overfelt (17-10).
All Division II games begin 4
p.m. Thursday.
Division III features four county
teams. Menlo School (19-7), the
West Bay Athletic League co-cham-
pion, garnered the No. 5 seed and
will host No. 12 Carmel (15-12).
The winner will play the winner of
No. 13 Seaside (16-11) and No. 4
Soquel (16-11-2).
The other WBALco-champ, Sacred
Heart Prep (18-9), received the No. 7
seed and takes on No. 10 Live Oak
(14-12) in Atherton. The winner of
that game will face either No. 15
King’s Academy (16-11) or No. 2
Pacific Grove (27-0), the only team
in CCS to post an undefeated record.
Half Moon Bay (18-9), which
grabbed the PAL’s final automatic
berth with a fourth-place finish in
the Bay Division, got the No. 11
seed and will play No. 6 Scotts
Valley (18-11) on the road. The win-
ner will face either No. 14
Stevenson (16-9) or No. 3 St.
Francis CCC (20-8).
Terra Nova (19-7) received the
highest seed of all local public
schools, getting the No. 9 slot. The
Tigers will still be on the road,
however, taking on No. 8 Monte
Vista Christian (12-15), which
despite a losing record somehow
gets to host a first-round game.

10 county teams make CCS baseball tourney
By Nathan Mollat
Three of the Peninsula Athletic
League Bay Division softball
teams received first-round byes in
the Central Coast Section playoffs
which begin this week.
Carlmont (24-3), the No. 3 seed
in Division I, won’t play until
Saturday’s quarterfinals. The Scots
will play the winner of No. 11 Los
Gatos (13-14) and No. 6 Salinas
(18-7). In Division II, Hillsdale
(19-8) got the No. 3 seed and a
first-round bye. The Knights will
play either No. 11 St. Ignatius
(15-12) or No. 6 Pioneer (15-11).
Half Moon Bay (21-6) is the No. 2
seed in Division III and will play
the winner of No. 10 Carmel (15-
10) and No. 7 Scotts Valley (18-7).
There are four other local squads
that will play first-round games.
Woodside (22-4-1), the PAL’s
Ocean Division champion,
received the No. 9 seed in Division
I and will face No. 8 North Salinas
(15-11) at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The
winner gets the dubious task of
taking on top seeded San Benito
(22-3) in a quarterfinal game
In other Division I action,
Sequoia (14-10), the fourth-place
finisher in the PAL’s Bay Division,
received the No. 10 seed and will
be on the road at No. 7 Santa
Teresa (20-7). The winner faces
No. 2 seed Leland (24-2).
In Division III, Menlo School
(14-6), the West Bay Athletic
League champion, got the No. 13
seed and will take on No. 4 and
perennial CCS contender Notre
Dame-Salinas (18-9) at 4 p.m.
Wednesday. The winner gets either
No. 5 Seaside (17-5) or No. 12
Notre Dame-San Jose (12-12).
CCS’s other Notre Dame school,
Notre Dame-Belmont (13-13),
received the No. 8 seed and will
host No. 9 Pacific Grove (17-10) at
4 p.m. Wednesday. The winner
gets No. 1 Santa Catalina (24-2) in
the quarterfinals.

The Peninsula Athletic League
track and field championships are
really the last time the focus is
still on team as the Central Coast
Section and state championship
meets start moving to the fore-
As such, the girls’ PAL team
championship could not have
been closer. Going into the final
race of the day, the 4x400, the
Menlo-Atherton and Sequoia
girls’ teams were neck and neck.
M-A held an 81-78 lead. Sequoia
won the final battle, capturing the
relay crown, but M-Awon the war.
The Bears finished second behind
the Cherokees in the 4x400, earn-
ing eight points, which gave them
89 points, one more than Sequoia,
to win the girls’ team title.
Aragon and Westmoor finished
in a tie for third with 57 points.
Westmoor can thank the efforts
of senior distance runner Kylie
Goo for pulling the Rams into the
top three. One of the best in the
state in the 800, Goo won her spe-
cialty, while also posting a cham-
pionship in the 1,600. She then
anchored the 4x400 relay team to
a third-place finish.
“I know the goal is to qualify for
CCS, but there is pressure to keep
up (her excellence in the PAL
championships),” Goo said. “This
is the first year I truly felt like the
overwhelming favorite (in the
1,600 and 800).”
The win in the 800 gave her
three PAL titles in four years and
her third in a row. The top qualifi-
er, she cruised to a time of 2:18.49
to beat M-A’s freshman Annalisa
Crowe and Half Moon Bay’s Kylie
She was not challenged in the
1,600 either, beating Crowe by
nearly two seconds. Aragon’s Kat
Chinn was third. Both Crowe and
Chinn set personal bests in the
It was Goo’s second-straight
1,600 PAL title.
“It feels pretty good, especially
(winning) the 800,” said Goo,
who will run for University of
Northern Arizona next year. “It’s
an event I really love.”
Chinn would go on to capture
the 3,200, cruising to an 18-sec-
ond win over M-A’s Taylor
Fortnam. Chinn covered the dis-
tance in a time of 9:21.64.
There were two other two-time
winners. Mills thrower Sabrina
Mendoza added the girls’ discus
title to the shot put crown she won
the previous week. She easily out-
distanced M-A’s Lisanne Horwitz
with a toss of 114-7. Horwitz fin-
ished with a mark of 101-8 while
Mendoza’s teammate Mele Mapa
was third with a distance of 98-3.
The other two-time winner was
Carlmont’s freshman phenom
Anaya Alexander. The sprinter
took gold in the 200 and 400,
while coming up short in the 100,
finishing third.
It was an improbable task to win
all three sprints, considering the
400 and 100 were about 10 min-
utes apart. She shaved nearly two
seconds off her qualifying time,
winning the 400 with a 56.40.
Sequoia’s Willa Friedl Gruver was
the only other runner to post a
sub-minute time, finishing second
with a 59.82. Two M-A runners,
Cassie Stansberry and Annie
Harrier tied for third with identical
times of 60.10.
Ten minutes later, Alexander
tried the nearly impossible double
of winning the 100. She was still
gassed following her 400 victory
and Terra Nova freshman Mikayla
Miller capitalized, winning with a
time of 13.34. Sequoia’s
Alexandra Bliss snuck in for sec-
ond with a 13.54, while Alexander
was third with a 13.62.
“It’s always horrible (to run the
400 and 100),” said Carlmont
coach Brent Cottong. “The 400 to
100 is always tough.
“You have to come back when
you’re tired and finish. You still
have to bring it when you’re
Given proper rest, however,
Alexander proved she will be a
force for the next several years,
winning the 200 in a time of
26.69, easily beating Friedl
Gruver (27.04) and Harrier
Aragon’s Savanna Kiefer added
to some personal family history
with a win in the 100 hurdles, cap-
turing the championship with a
time of 16.30, beating out both
Woodside’s Abby Taussig and
Sequoia’s Emma Martino, who fin-
ished in a tie for second at 16.90.
With the win, Kiefer became a
third-generation PAL champion.
Her mother, Linda Luttrell (now
Kiefer), captured the South PAL
100 hurdles title in 1981 and her
grandfather, Jim Luttrell, won PAL
hurdles championships in the
early 1950s.
Kiefer, however, could not make
it a double as she finished third in
the 300 hurdles, although she did
set personal best of 49.11. That
title went Taussig, who posted a
personal best of 46.59.
Burlingame’s Greer Chrisman was

the ups and downs in recent sea-
sons, including his demotion to
the bullpen for the playoffs, Tim
Lincecum can appreciate the
strong starts when most every-
thing goes right — reminding
himself, from his own experi-
ences, how quickly things
Backed by solo home runs from
Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Belt and
Marco Scutaro, Lincecum looked
in his best form so far in 2013 as
the San Francisco Giants beat the
Atlanta Braves 5-1 on Sunday to
wrap up an impressive homestand.
Lincecum (3-2) struck out seven
in seven scoreless innings to end
a three-start winless stretch in
which he went 0-2. The two-time
NL Cy Young Award winner also
stopped a four-start skid against
Atlanta, beating the Braves for the
first time since April 11, 2010.
“I’ll take it,” Lincecum said.
“But I’m not jumping up in the air
right now. ... I’m happy about it,
but it’s still a work in progress.
I’m still working to get better. ”
Belt hit a solo homer in the sec-
ond, Sandoval connected in the
third and Scutaro went deep lead-
ing off the fifth. Gregor Blanco
had an RBI double.
Brandon Crawford added an RBI
single in the fourth for the Giants,
who concluded a 7-3 homestand.
San Francisco won a home series
against the NL East for the first
time since April last year.
Sandoval’s two-out drive in the
third cleared the elevated right-
field arcade and found the water in
McCovey Cove, setting off a
kayaking commotion in a frenzy
to retrieve the souvenir ball.
“Any time Pablo’s got a smile
on his face it’s hard for the whole
team not to jump on that energy
and feed off it,” Lincecum said.
It was the 63rd splash homer by
the Giants — home run king Barry
Bonds has 35 — seventh by Kung
Fu Panda and second for San
Francisco this year. There have
been 89 in the 14-season history
of AT&T Park, including one by
the Braves’ Brian McCann on
Friday night.
“My wife asked me to hit a home
run into the water for her for
Mother’s Day,” Braves starter Kris
Medlen joked. “I must have misun-
derstood her, and gave up a home
run that went into the water. ”
In just his third quality start in
eight outings, Lincecum allowed a
season-low two hits after being
tagged for 19 over his previous
two appearances. Giants closer
Sergio Romo, San Francisco’s
fourth reliever, allowed an RBI
double to pinch-hitter Evan Gattis
for Atlanta’s lone run.
Lincecum said he chatted with
the other starters after his last out-
ing about getting back on track
collectively as a rotation.
“It’s just kind of one of those
things, we kick each other in the
(rear end),”’ he said after a 111-
pitch performance. “It’s just, here
we go, this is the start of some-
thing hopefully good.”
The NL West-leading Giants
make a quick, two-game stop start-
ing Tuesday in Toronto, where for-
mer San Francisco outfielder
Melky Cabrera will receive his
World Series ring for contribu-
tions last season before his 50-
game suspension for a positive
testosterone test.
San Francisco then heads to
Coors Field in Denver for four
games against the Rockies.
“It’s not going to be easy travel
for these guys,” manager Bruce
Bochy said. “We get into
Colorado late, but that’s part of
the schedule.”
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez
rejoined his team after two days
away to attend his daughter Gigi’s
college graduation in Georgia. But
Atlanta lost its third straight since
taking the opener Thursday night
— outscored 23-4 over the final
three games.
“We haven’t been real fun to
watch right now,” Gonzalez said.
“What did we score, four runs the
past couple games? They have a
good club and any time we made a
mistake they took advantage. We
didn’t get much of anything going
until the end when we scored a

game trip at Arizona, where left
fielder Justin Upton will face his
former Diamondbacks teammates.

Brandon Belt was called safe at home against the Atlanta Braves yesterday
in San Francisco. Belt also hit a home run in the win.

team championship Saturday afternoon at
Terra Nova. Aragon accumulated 105 points
to easily outdistance second-place
Carlmont, which had 88 points. Third place
went to Menlo-Atherton, which amassed
67.5 points.
Elzie repeated as the PAL 100-meter
champion, living up to his top-qualifying
mark by winning with a time of 11.15 sec-
onds, easily racing past Terra Nova’s
Clark Tolero (11.56) and Woodside’s
Justin Borjon (11. 5).
He also anchored the Aragon 4x100
relay team to a new meet record of 43.16.
The quartet of James Garcia, Antony
Cabuslay, Parker Huang and Elzie broke
the previous 30-year-old record of 43.30,
set in 1983 Menlo-Atherton.
He then added the long jump title to his
resume, beating M-A’s Devrick Meacham
by an inch, 20 feet, 10 inches to 20-9.
Elzie wrapped up his day with a second-
place finish in the 200, with a time of
22. 82.
“Normally I don’t run the 200,” Elzie
said, adding it’s the fourth 200 he’s raced
all season. “But my team needed the
Speaking of the 200, the champion was
San Mateo’s Michael Beery, who covered
the distance in 22.62. Despite being one
of the best 200 and 400 runners in the
Central Coast Section the last two years,
he had come up short in winning a PAL
title. Last year, he went up against
Carlmont’s Elliot Surrovel, who won both
the 400 and 200 last year. Saturday,
despite being having the top qualifying
time in the 400, he finished second behind
Terra Nova’s Jeremy Wright, who posted a
time of 48.98, compared to Beery’s
49. 50.
Beery finally broke through in the 200.
“It’s great,” Beery said. “I’ve been wait-
ing (for this title) since freshman year.
(Coming up short in previous years) was
definitely frustrating. I’ve been working
so hard. It’s definitely inspiration for CCS.”
While Elzie was the only three-time win-
ner Saturday, there was one other two-time
winner on the boys’ side – Carlmont dis-
tance runner Tim Layten, who won both the
1,600 and the 800. He was kind of an after-
thought in the 1,600, as he qualified sixth
in the 1,600. But he proved that the time to
post a fast time was in the finals, not quali-
fying. Layten spent the entire race in the
lead pack of six runners. Top qualifier
George Baier of M-A took the lead on the
final backstretch, but Layten came on to
win, outkicking everybody to the finish
“I think I have a little better kick at the
end,” Layten said. “I’ve run a lot of races
and made a lot of mistakes. But I learned
from them.
“I was using the 1,600 as a strength work-
out, but if I had a chance to win, I was going
to go for it.”
In the 800, he had the second-fastest qual-
ifying time, behind Baier. The two engaged
in a fierce battle and they were shoulder to
shoulder coming down the stretch, but
Layten clipped Baier at the finish line to
win with a time of 1:58.77 to Baier’s
“It was a goal to win both races,” Layten
said. “My goal is to make state in the 800.
I think it’s a good possibility. ”
Aragon’s James Garcia added to his 4x100
championship by winning the 100 hurdles
in a time of 15.60, holding off Carlmont’s
Franklin Rice and Alex Kumamoto.
Rice got his revenge in the 300 hurdles,
posting a time of 40.25, to beat Garcia
(40.45) and Kumamoto (41.45).
In the boys’ 3,200, Carlmont’s Daniel
Bereket cruised to the title with a time of
9:21.64, over 20 seconds faster than
Aragon’s Rory Beyer (9:44.73). Half Moon
Bay’s Logan Marshall was third.
The 4x400 crown went to Menlo-
Atherton in a time of 3:27.56. Aragon was
second and Burlingame was a surprising
third in a time of 3:34.62, which was post-
ed in the slower of two final heats. In the
field events, El Camino’s Anthony Hines,
M-A’s Noah Schneider, Westmoor’s
Anthony Balancio and Woodside’s Conner
Swan all posted heights of 5-10 in the high
jump, but Hines won the championship by
having less misses. The boys’ shot put title
went to Mills’ Jephta Zapata, who a throw
of 47-9 ?, besting teammate Alvin Sung

Woods had the last word against Sergi o
Garcia by winning The Players
Championship on Sunday.
Woods ended a weekend of verbal sparring
with Garcia by doing what he does best —
closing out tournaments, even if he let this
one turn into a tense duel over the final hour
at the TPC Sawgrass. Tied with Garcia with
two holes to play, Woods won by finding land
on the last two holes for par to close with a 2-
under 70.
If only it were that simple for the Spaniard.
Garcia was standing on the 17th tee shot,
staring across the water to an island as Woods
made his par. He took aim at the flag with his
wedge and hung his head when he saw the ball
splash down short of the green. Then, Garcia
hit another one in the water on his way to a
quadruple-bogey 7. He completed his stun-
ning collapse by hitting his tee shot into the
water on the 18th and making double bogey.
Woods was in the scoring trailer when he
watched on TV as Swedish rookie David
Lingmerth missed a long birdie putt that
would have forced a playoff. It raced by the
cup, and Lingmerth three-putted for bogey.
“How about that?” Woods said to his cad-
die, Joe LaCava as he gave him a hug.
Woods won The Players for the first time
since 2001 and joined Fred Couples, Davis
Love III, Hal Sutton and Steve Elkington as
the only two-time winners at the TPC
Sawgrass. It was his 78th career win on the
PGATour, four short of the record held by Sam
Lingmerth closed with a 72 and finished
two shots behind along with Kevin
Streelman (67) and Jeff Maggert, who also
was tied for the lead until finding the water on
the 17th to make double bogey. The 49-year-
old Maggert birdied the 18th for a 70.
Garcia took 13 shots to cover the final two
holes — 6-over par — and tumbled into a tie
for eighth.
Woods made this drama possible by hook-
ing his tee shot into the water on the 14th
hole and making a double bogey, dropping
him into a four-way tie with Garcia, Maggert
and Lingmerth. The final two holes came
down to Garcia and Woods, most appropriate
given their public sniping at each other this
It started Saturday when Garcia complained
in a TV interview that his shot from the par-
5 second fairway was disrupted by cheers
from the crowd around Woods, who was some
50 yards away in the trees and fired them up
by taking a fairway metal out of his bag. He
said Woods should have been paying atten-
tion, and it became a war of the words the
next two days.
“Not real surprising that he’s complaining
about something,” Woods said.
“At least I’m true to myself,” Garcia retort-
ed. “I know what I’m doing, and he can do
whatever he wants.”
When they finished the storm-delayed third
round Sunday morning, Garcia kept at it,
saying that Woods is “not the nicest guy on
Woods had the last laugh. He had the tro-
Garcia, when asked if he would have
changed anything about the flap with Woods,
replied, “It sounds like I was the bad guy
here. I was the victim.”
The real villain was the infamous 17th
hole, which knocked out Garcia and
“When you’ve got water in front of the
green, that’s not a good time to be short of
the green. You know, it was close,” Maggert
said. “What can I say? A wrong shot at the
wrong time and you get penalized on this
golf course.”
It was at the 17th hole five years ago where
Garcia won The Players Championship,
when Paul Goydos hit into the water in a sud-
den-death playoff. This time, the island
green got its revenge on him. Garcia hit a
wedge and felt he caught it just a little bit
thin, which is usually all it takes.
“That hole has been good to me for the
most part,” Garcia said. “Today, it wasn’t .
That’s the way it is. That’s the kind of hole it
is. You’ve got to love it for what it is.”
Woods finished on 13-under 275 and earned
$1.71 million, pushing his season total to
over $5.8 million in just seven tournaments.
This is the 12th season he has won at least
four times — that used to be the standard of a
great year before he joined the PGA Tour in
1996 — and this was the quickest he has
reached four wins in a year.

“And it just tests you. It changes your rou-
tine. It changes your outlook on the game,
your preparation. You’ve got to deal with
the injury and the adjustments your making
as a team.”
Game 5 is Tuesday in San Antonio.
Curry and the Warriors overcame the
obstacles with contributions from all over.
Rookie Harrison Barnes had a career-high
26 points and 10 rebounds, Jarrett Jack
added 24 points in reserve and Andrew
Bogut grabbed 18 rebounds to help Golden
State erase an eight-point deficit in the final
five minutes of regulation. The Warriors
scored the first nine points of overtime to
whip the yellow-shirt wearing crowd of
19,596 into a frenzy and give this topsy-
turvy series yet another twist.
Even Warriors coach Mark Jackson doubt-
ed whether Curry could play, especially after
his star point guard took an anti-inflamma-
tory injection in the morning to ease the
soreness in his sprained ankle and still had
trouble getting loose. Jackson cornered
Curry outside the chapel service at the arena
to see how he felt.
“He said, ‘I’m going to give you what I
got, coach,’ That’s not the language he
speaks. I knew right away that he was not
100 percent,” said Jackson, who conferred
with general manager Bob Myers in his
office before letting Curry play. “Once
again, it’s that same spirit flowing through
that locker room that refuses to quit.”
Even for all of the theater Curry provided,
the Spurs seized control of a sloppy slugfest
at the start until going cold shooting when
it mattered most.
Tony Parker, wearing a black sleeve
around his bruised left calf, poured in 17
points on 6-of-17 shooting but never broke
free the way he did in scoring 32 points the
previous contest, saying the injury limited
his ability to elevate. Manu Ginobili had 21
points and Tim Duncan added 19 points and
15 rebounds as the Spurs ran out of steam in
the end.
“We put ourselves in a position to win the
game and it’s frustrating because we feel
like we gave it away,” Duncan said.
Golden State outshot San Antonio 38 to
35.5 to percent. The Warriors also outre-
bounded the Spurs 65-51.
“They did a good job in overtime. Just as
simple as that,” Spurs coach Gregg
Popovich said.
Ginobili hit a mid-range jumper and a 3-
pointer, and Kawhi Leonard put back a
rebound for an easy layup to put the Spurs
ahead 80-72 with 4:49 remaining in the
fourth quarter. With the series slipping away
from the Warriors, their home sellout crowd
sat down and fell silent for one of the few
times in the fourth quarter all postseason.
Jack hit three jumpers and Klay
Thompson added another to pull the
Warriors even with less than a minute to
play in regulation. After Parker provided a
jumper to put the Spurs ahead 84-82,
Thompson dribbled to his right and banked
in the tying shot over Leonard with 30 sec-
onds left.
Both teams missed shots to win in regula-
tion, and the Warriors turned the extra ses-
sion into a runaway.
Curry capped the overtime spurt with a
floating layup, drawing a foul on Duncan to
begin a three-point play that gave Golden
State a 93-84 lead. San Antonio missed its
first nine shots — and two free throws by
Danny Green — to start overtime until
Green’s corner 3 with 1:29 remaining.
By then, it was too late — Curry had taken
control again.
“He’s a player that you may see him play-
ing one leg, one arm, and you got to guard
him,” Ginobili said. “So you got to respect
him. He can really go off at any time.”
The upstart Warriors are once again on the
brink of something big.
The franchise hadn’t won two games
beyond the first round since 1977, when it
pulled even with the Lakers in the confer-
ence semifinals through four games before
losing in seven. This time, all the odds
seemed against them again.

lievable, down-right classic softball games in
CSM’s history, the Bulldogs accomplished a
destiny vested upon them when the season
started back in late January and are headed to
Bakersfield to play in the CCCAA Final Four
for the first time under manager Nicole Borg.
“I’m on Cloud 9 right now,” Borg, who cel-
ebrated her child’s first birthday with a win on
Sunday, said. “It’s awesome. It couldn’t be
any better. Especially with what happened
last year — with us being expected to make it
that far and falling short and me not being
there that day, it’s awesome. It’s awesome.”
“It’s amazing,” Fiame said. “I’m very
happy and I’m extremely stoked. My heart
was racing. I was extremely nervous. But I
believed in myself that I could get the job
done. I was just looking for a strike. Aperfect
strike. And that’s what I got.”
It’s safe to say CSM got a lot more than
they bargained for from the Vikings. Afifth-
place finisher in the Coast Conference South
Division, West Valley completely blitzed
Pilster and the Bulldogs right out of the gate,
scoring three runs in the first, one in the sec-
ond and four in the fourth — up until
Sunday’s game, CSM had yet to surrender
more than six runs in a single contest or
more than four in a single home game.
West Valley scored those eight runs on
seven hits, five walks and two errors.
“It’s an unfortunate time of the year to
have as many errors as we had because we’ve
been so solid defensively,” Borg said. “But
the thing I love about this game is we were
able to overcome that and learn from our
failures. West Valley challenged us.”
Fiame’s fourth homer in five games plus a
Jenn Davidson RBI single in the second had
CSM hanging around to the tune of 8-2
when Pilster was pulled for Amelia Shales.
And with No. 17 pitching, the first big
momentum swing of the afternoon
occurred. Shales went 1-2-3 in the fourth
and the CSM offense responded by scoring
six runs to tie things up 8-8. Davidson,
Jamie Navarro, Fiame and Pilster picked up
big hits in the frame.
“I think that was huge momentum shift
for us,” Borg said of Shales’ pitching.
“She’s waited a long time for that. And she’s
really proved that she belongs in that cir-
cle. Amelia came in and did a great job. She
gave us a chance to win that game.”
“I tried to maintain mental confidence the
whole season and keep myself on the same
mental plane so in that situation I can come
in and do what I need to do,” Shales, who had
to battle back from an ankle injury this
year, said. “Coming into that, I’ve been
waiting to come into a situation where the
pressure is on me. I’m ready for that. We’re
prepared for that.”
West Valley would not be silenced for
long. The Vikings put up a two-spot in the
fifth then added single runs in the sixth and
seventh. In all, West Valley scored in every
inning except the fourth and that had them
up 12-8 come the game’s final inning.
A loss in Game 1 of the NorCal Super
Regional would have meant a Game 2, win-
ner-take-all elimination game. And for all
intents and purposes, it looked like the
Mother’s Day crowd that gathered at Tom
Martinez field was preparing for just that.
But CSM had other intentions.
“Confidence, I’d say. We all know we can
hit,” Shales said when asked what the attitude
of the dugout was prior to the seventh inning.
“We’re a great team. We just knew we had to get
it done. We all had confidence in each other.”
Natalie Saucedo led off with a walk and
would come around to scored after a passed ball
and a Pilster single. After a Mikayla Conlin
fielder’s choice and a Kristin Petrini fly out,
Davidson drew a walk and Selina Rodriguez
followed with a single to make it 12-10. Acou-
ple of walks to Kaylin Stewart and then
Navarro made it a one-run game and brought
CSM’s Wonder Woman, Fiame, to the dish.
“She’s just a natural at this game,” Borg
said. “You never know how good she is
because she never talks about herself. But she
puts in the time. The ongoing joke is that
Talisa would be here under the lights all night
hitting. She puts in the time and that’s why
she gets the results. I think everybody did a
great job. We have to be able to execute small
ball and get big hits when we need to.”
On the third pitch she saw, Fiame got the
biggest hit of the Nicole Borg era, lining a
shot to left that plated two, set the CSM
bench in an uproar and sent the Bulldogs to
the Final Four.
“That’s what this game is all about,” Borg
said. “Playoff time. Both teams never gave
up. West Valley is a great team. Offensively
they’re tough. That’s what playoffs are all
about. We play until it’s over. You hate to
see anyone lose that game because both
teams fought so hard.”
“I think we all wanted to win really badly, ”
Fiame said. “That was our main goal. We just
had to pick each other up and have a positive
mentality. When you’re down, you can’t
think negatively. You already defeated your-
self. You have to have a positive mentality
and you’ll get the job done if you believe.”

y brother asked me why there’s
so much love for cats and kit-
tens online, why there’s far
more cat content to view, tweet and re-
post than dog-related content. I don’t want
to offend the entire cat community, but I’ll
say it. Dog people are out and about doing
stuff while cat people stay home, online.
Generally speaking, that is. My bro is
more of a cat person than I am and he said
“exactly!” One of PHS/SPCA’s shelter
graduates, Dusty the Klepto Kitty, became
an Internet sensation; ironically, it was
Dusty’s getting out — her late-night
escapades stealing gloves, towels and
even bras from neighbors’ clotheslines,
decks and yards — that brought her notori-
ety, including a spot on Letterman and
most local news shows. Of course, if you
spend time online, you can definitely find
your share of goofy dog videos. Still, cats
are king online. For years, companies
selling cameras and other high-tech gadg-
ets approached PHS/SPCAabout getting
their products in our adoptable animal
rooms; we resisted, reasoning we were
much better off getting someone to visit
in person to meet the kitty of their
dreams. Then, the good folks at Dropcam
presented an offer we couldn’t refuse: free
cameras. We placed them in three rooms at
our new center: two in condos housing
adoptable cats and one inside our indoor
dog park, where staff and volunteers exer-
cise and train shelter dogs. This room fea-
tures a unique water wall; water pours
(well, it’s more like a steady dribble) from
five sculpted dogs’ mouths. We get far
more attention for our cat cams. And, it’s
translating into adoptions. Many people
visit and say they want the kitty they saw
online, playing in our room. When it
comes to the Internet, cats rule and dogs
— especially the ones on our water wall
— drool. Visit this page to see our cats in

LOS ANGELES — Gatsby looks
almost as great as a superhero at
the weekend box office.
Leonard DiCaprio’s “The Great
Gatsby” partied like it was the
Roaring ’20s with a $51.1 million
debut that made it a surprisingly
strong runner-up to comic-book
blockbuster “Iron Man 3.”
Studio estimates Sunday put
“Gatsby” at No. 2 behind Robert
Downey Jr. ’s superhero sequel,
which pulled in $72.5 million
domestically to raise its total to
$284.9 million after just 10 days
in U.S. theaters.
With an additional $89.3 mil-
lion in its third weekend overseas,
“Iron Man 3” lifted its internation-
al total to $664.1 million and its
worldwide haul to $949 million.
“The Great Gatsby” far exceeded
expectations by distributor
Warner Bros. of a $35 million to
$40 million opening weekend.
Director Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D
adaptation of the F. Scott
Fitzgerald classic was a rare box-
office smash for films aimed at
older adults during the youth-
minded summer season. According
to Warner Bros., viewers over 25
made up 69 percent of the film’s

poles in the marketplace, you still
have those who feel that it’s not
directed at them, which is true. So
that’s why I think counterprogram-
ming like this is very important.”
The weekend’s other new wide
release, Lionsgate’s romantic
comedy “Peeples,” flopped at No.
4 with just $4.9 million. Produced
by Tyler Perry, the movie stars
Craig Robinson and Kerry
Washington in a meet-the-par-
ents-style farce.
Getting a head start on its
domestic launch Friday, “Star
Trek: Into Darkness” opened with
$31.7 million in seven interna-
tional markets. Its overseas debut
included $13.3 million in Great
Britain, $7.6 million in Germany
and $5.5 million in Australia.
Starring DiCaprio in the title
role as 1920s mystery millionaire
Jay Gatsby, the latest Fitzgerald
update co-stars Carey Mulligan as
his lost love and Tobey Maguire as
the friend chronicling their
doomed romance.
It was by far the biggest debut
ever for filmmaker Luhrmann,
whose previous best was $14.8
million for “Australia.” In just one
weekend, “The Great Gatsby” near-
ly matched the $57.4 million
domestic haul that Luhrmann’s top-
grossing film, the musical “Moulin
Rouge!”, managed in its entire run.
“Gatsby” also gave DiCaprio
his second-biggest debut, behind

NBC promotes fall season with Twitter contest
NEWYORK — NBC is giving the public more than just a
new slate of programming. There are prizes to be had, too.
The network said Sunday that it’s holding a Twitter-based
sweepstakes linked to its fall schedule presentation to
advertisers — a social-media twist on the annual TV rite
occurring this week.
One of the prizes is a trip to Los Angeles to attend a final
taping of Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show.” The other is a New
York visit to see one of the first tapings of the relocated
“Tonight” with new host Jimmy Fallon.

for projects under a Mills Act contract
to preserve a historic structure;
• Subdivisions, conditional excep-
tions and tentative/parcel maps are
recommended at 100 percent of recov-
• Zoning ordinance amendments are
recommended at 100 percent of recov-
ery instead of the current $19,000
across-the-board fee regardless of
size; and
• Dirt hauling is recommended to
switch from $11/cubic yard to
$2/cubic yard plus one hour of engi-
neering labor costs of $108.
In some departments, like planning
and public works, the fees and hourly
rates have dropped but, because more
staff time is necessary, the revenue has
actually gone up. For example,
although the building division rate
dropped, a decrease in head count and
increased time spent pushed fee rev-
enue up $236,000. In planning, the
hourly rate also dropped but revenue is
up 93 percent, or $291,000.
If approved, the new fee rates begin

Avenue and Park Road, and the down-
town post office on Park Road.
During the first meeting held in
March, participants went over infor-
mation about the Downtown Specific
Plan along with issues and opportuni-
ties. During the meeting, participants
expressed that the most important
aspects of a development is that it
include flexible space that can accom-
modate activities for people of all
ages and considering pedestrian-only
use of Park Road, according to the
meeting summary. Also, there was a
desire to keep the post office in opera-
tion or at the very least to maintain
the facade and lobby of the building
possibly for a use similar to the San
Francisco Ferry Building.
On May 22, the group will discuss
issues and case studies before having
an interactive discussion about plan
The sale of the Burlingame Main
Post Office, located at 220 Park Road,
was approved by postal officials in
February 2012. Since then, the U.S.
Postal Service has been researching
the property before putting it on the
market. City officials were told the
post office could go on the market in
three months.
James T. Wigdel, U.S. Postal
Service spokesman, said there was no
update on the property as of Tuesday.
Developing downtown parking lots
has been a focus for the city for quite
some time.
As an initial work effort, the sub-
committee, currently consisting of
Mayor Ann Keighran and Vice Mayor
Michael Brownrigg, worked with staff
to prepare a request for qualifications
seeking qualified companies interested
in development of one or more of the
downtown parking lots. The selected
developers, Grosvenor and Equity
Residential, are currently in negotia-
tions with the city regarding their
parking lots of interest — parking lot
E, and parking lots F and N, respec-
Grosvenor, an international proper-
ty development, investment and fund
management group, put forward a
mixed-use project using lot E. The
concept, which encompasses the post
office land, includes an “urban village”
with 100 residential units, 35,000
square feet of retail and/or restaurant
space and 125 residential parking
spaces, according to a staff report. The
firm also expressed a willingness to
discuss ideas for helping the city con-
struct a parking structure on lot J,
across Park Road from lot E.
Equity Residential, a real estate
investment trust based in Chicago,
has a proposal that doesn’t include the
post office space.
In March, the City Council voted 4-
1, with Councilwoman Cathy Baylock
dissenting, to send a letter to the U.S.
Postal Service that the sale of the
downtown post office to be free of fed-
eral historical preservation require-
ments. Doing so, the majority said,
would tie local control and the histor-
ical considerations would be covered
under the California Environmental
Quality Act. Baylock, on the other
hand, said the practice is customary
and could act as an extra form of pro-
tection for a historical aspect of
Burlingame’s downtown.
The workshop will be held from 5
p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 22
in the Lane Room at the Burlingame
Public Library, 480 Primrose Road.

State Department recently ordered him
to take it off of his website.
According to the Defense
Distributed website, Wilson’s mission
is to bypass government regulation
and the legal constraints of intellectu-
al property, copyright and patents, by
enabling citizens to manufacture all
kinds of 3-D printed goods, including
medical devices, in their own homes.
He aims to accomplish this by first
making an open source for firearms
designs online.
What is a 3-D printer?
A3-D printer takes a digital design
input and produces a 3-D plastic object
from that design. Office supplier
Staples is selling a small 3-D printer
for $1,300 online. It can produce any
object with dimensions less than 5.5
“When you get into that range, it’s
extremely affordable for a lot of peo-
ple,” said Yee.
Larger printers are also coming to
market for the public, for a few thou-
sand dollars more.
TechShop, Inc., headquartered in
Menlo Park, offers classes on 3-D
printing. The company declined a
request for comment but representa-
tive Connie Zheng wrote in an email,
“TechShop has always strictly prohib-
ited the assembly of firearms in the
Lawmakers in New York and
Washington, D.C., are also looking at
similar legislation responding to 3-D-
printed guns.
Gun Owners of California and

TaUrUs (April 20-May 20) -- Nothing worthwhile
is likely to be accomplished if you’re too reluctant
to compromise. It’ll be your loss -- sometimes you
need to bend to get what you want.
GeMini (May 21-June 20) -- Though you will
admirably want to help someone you see struggling,
make sure that the person is legitimately in need of
help. He or she may just be faking.
CanCer (June 21-July 22) -- Complications will
arise if you’re so adamant about having your way
that you buck the will of the majority. Being the lone
dissenter will make you stick out like a sore thumb.
LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be careful not to overplay
your hand in a collective endeavor. Demanding
things be done your way or loudly tooting your own
horn could turn supporters into opponents.
VirGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Nothing will be gained
by arguing with someone whose views differ
radically from yours. To make matters worse, it
might be about something that neither of you has
the power to change.
LiBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you’re swimming in
unfamiliar waters, make sure you have a frm grasp
of what’s what. Someone could be trying to take
advantage of you.
sCOrPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Don’t make a major
domestic decision before talking things over with
your mate and/or family. Someone in the household
might have a better picture of the situation than you.
saGiTTariUs (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone who
has neglected to thank you for a previous favor
might once again seek your help. What you do is
your business, but don’t look for a different ending.
CaPriCOrn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Normally, you’re
a pretty cautious person, but today someone might
talk you into doing a favor for him or her against
your better judgment. Be careful, not sorry.
aQUariUs (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Have some alternative
plans in mind today, just in case you have to scrap
your original objective. There’s a chance something
might cause you to change course real fast.
PisCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Just because
someone strong-willed is presenting something to
you doesn’t mean you have to do what this person
wants. Don’t be awed by his or her force.
aries (March 21-April 19) -- If you’re not careful,
you could get yourself in trouble by giving more than
you can materially or emotionally afford. Be careful
not to overextend yourself in either case.

dents. But the change has not come without
Many law enforcement officials, victims’
rights groups and Republican lawmakers say
crime has increased because of Brown’s
realignment law, as the wave of new inmates
arriving in some county jails is leading to
overcrowded conditions and the early release
of dangerous felons. Advocacy groups seized
on preliminary FBI crime statistics to argue
both sides of the issue.
Though still low in comparison to previ-
ous decades, property and violent crimes
increased in 40 of California’s 69 largest
cities in the first six months of 2012, the
largest such increase in 20 years, and the
Sacramento-based Criminal Justice Legal
Foundation said realignment is clearly to
But the San Francisco-based Center on
Juvenile and Criminal Justice said violent
crime rates dropped in five counties that
received a lion’s share of the lower-level
offenders who previously would have gone
to state prisons, showing that counties can
handle the influx without a corresponding
rise in crime.
The law’s opponents have highlighted
individual cases such as a parole violator on
early release who beat his girlfriend so badly
she suffered brain damage and another
charged with raping and killing his 76-year-
old grandmother.
Inmates who serve time in county jails
often are not being monitored at all after
being set free, and the number of paroled
sex offenders who are fugitives rose 15 per-
cent after Brown’s realignment law took
effect. Moreover, the law firms that previ-
ously sued the state are now targeting coun-
ties for the same conditions that led to a fed-
eral court takeover of some state prison
operations, oversight that has cost the
state billions of dollars.
An expert who has been studying the pris-
oner shift, Stanford University law professor
Joan Petersilia, said the policy is serving as
a national experiment about whether prison
populations can be reduced significantly
without posing a threat to public safety.
More than 100,000 offenders have been
affected by the law, which took effect in
October 2011. More than $2 billion has
been allocated by the state to help local gov-
ernments handle their new responsibilities,
while another $1.7 billion in state bonds is
going to build more county jail space.
For all the upheaval, the frustration for
Brown is that the shift of tens of thousands
of prisoners still has not been enough to sat-
isfy the panel of three federal judges.
The state had no choice but to reduce
prison crowding after the judges ruled that it
was the primary cause of unconstitutionally
poor inmate medical and mental health care.
The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the decision
in 2011, forcing the state to reduce its state
inmate population.
The realignment law is responsible for
reducing the state prison population by
25,000 inmates, to about 119,000. Yet the
federal courts say another 9,300 must go by
year’s end and have threatened to hold Brown
in contempt if he doesn’t comply.
California prisons now hold 43,000 fewer
inmates than they did at their peak in 2006
— a 25 percent drop. The inmate reduction is
larger than the entire prison populations of
42 other states, according to the latest U.S.
Bureau of Justice Statistics figures.
“That’s a historic change,” said
Corrections Secretary Jeffrey Beard, who
took over California’s system in January
after heading Pennsylvania’s prison system
for nearly a decade. “It’s huge. Nobody else
in the nation has done that.”
But the realignment law, known as
Assembly Bill 109, has emboldened
Republicans, the state’s minority party. It
passed without GOP support, and now those
lawmakers are taking an I-told-you-so
approach as they seek legislation to repeal
or overhaul it.
“In every county of this state, citizens of
California have suffered and been victimized
by the AB109ers, as we call them,”
Republican state Sen. Jim Nielsen, who once
headed the state’s parole board, said during a
recent Capitol news conference. “I’ll argue
(that) no bill ever passed by this Legislature
has had more dire and severe and egregious
Some Democratic state lawmakers also say
several problems need to be fixed, even as
they support the overall goal of moving
more offenders closer to rehabilitation serv-
ices in the communities where they commit-
ted their crimes.
“I don’t think you need to be seen as a
bomb-thrower to be saying realignment,
AB109, warrants tweaking,” said freshman
Assemblyman Ken Cooley, a Democrat from
suburban Sacramento who is the author of
two bills that would send some criminals
back to state prisons instead of placing them
in county jails. “I think that’s the public
policy conversation in California at this
