San Mateo
By Bill Silverfarb
Current residents who live at the 17-
story complex near downtown San
Mateo — rebranded the 55 West Fifth
last year — formed a tenants associa-
tion a few days ago in hopes of stop-
ping an ongoing construction project
they say will benefit future tenants but
not the ones who live there now.
Jerome Miller was named president
of the group after it was officially
formed Sunday. About 60 current ten-
ants gathered Sunday evening to unite
in their efforts to stop a mandatory
washer and dryer installation started
by the property’s new owner, Equity
Residential, which bought the tower
and adjoining buildings for $93 mil-
lion in August 2012.
The property was previously named
Townhouse Plaza and was owned by
Westlake Realty Group.
“We want to stop the washer/dryer
project where it is and see if Equity
feels they can still advertise the 55
building as having in-unit washer dry-
ers,” Miller told the Daily Journal.
“We also want compensation for all of
the lost quiet enjoyment and habitabil-
ity. They are charging full price and act

Residents of 55 West Fifth in San Mateo seek to stop construction project
Residents of 55 West Fifth in San Mateo formed a tenants
association Sunday night to try and negotiate with ownership
over an ongoing construction project.They named Jerome
Miller, standing near center, as its president.
“They are charging full price and act as if there is
nothing wrong with this place. Renters feel tricked,
lied to and clearly unsatisfied. Even the new ones.”

This season of Project Runway on the
Lifetime network will feature local
fashion designer Alexandria Von
Bromssen, who produces her own
line and runs Red Square Boutique, a
design collective in San Mateo.
Von Bromssen, 38, first applied for
the fashion design competition
around five years ago and received a
harsh critique from Tim Gunn, the famous
flamboyant mentor to the designers on the
show. Gunn told Von Bromssen that her
work belonged in a museum, meaning he
thought her clothing wasn’t wearable to
the masses.
“I was disgruntled after he said ‘you
belong in a museum,’” she said.
But that didn’t stop the designer from
trying again years later to be on the show,
after she had developed herself more as a

Feds: Kennedys’ sea
turtle rescue was a violation
BARNSTABLE, Mass. — Two mem-
bers of the Kennedy family who
thought they were doing a good deed
by freeing an entangled sea turtle actu-
ally violated the law, according to the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
John Bullard of NOAA’s Division of
Fisheries said he spoke to brothers
Max and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. about
their rescue of the leatherback turtle
and explained to them that what they
did was dangerous and a violation of
the Endangered Species Act, which
makes it illegal to handle an endan-
gered or protected species.
The Kennedys freed the estimated
500-pound turtle from a buoy line
wrapped around its head and fins on
July 6 after they spotted it while out
sailing on Nantucket Sound.
The brothers have been “coopera-
tive and very helpful” as the agency
gathers pictures, gear and other evi-
dence involved in the rescue, Bullard
told Cape Cod Times.
Turtle rescue is best left to profes-
sionals because of the danger
involved, he said. Anyone who spots a
distressed turtle should contact NOAA.
An untrained person runs the risk of
getting tangled in the line and pulled
under by a turtle, which can weigh up
to 700 pounds and hold its breath a lot
longer than a human, he said.
“You can get entangled, go under and
it can turn into a tragedy,” he said.
Only the Provincetown Center for
Coastal Studies is certified to handle
The brothers have expressed regret.
“When we spotted a sea turtle in
trouble over the 4th of July weekend,
our first impulse was to do what we
could to help free the animal,” Robert
Kennedy Jr. said in a statement on
NOAA’s website. “But we realize that
the action we took was pretty risky,
these are large, powerful animals.”
He urged people who spot a turtle in
danger to call NOAA, then stand by
until rescuers arrive to help them
locate the animal.
There have been 22 reported turtle
entanglements in Massachusetts,
Rhode Island and New York waters this
year, NOAA said, compared to eight
during the same period last year.
Elderly grocery store
owner refuses robber
MARSHFIELD, Wis. — A masked
robber apparently thought the 96-
year-old owner of a neighborhood gro-
cery store in Marshfield would be an
easy target for his crime. But, he was
so wrong.
Margaretta Wolf has owned the store
bearing her family name for 54 years.
And she wasn’t about to turn over her
cash to the armed intruder after he
ordered her to open the cash register.
“I said: ‘I’m not opening up that
cash register and that’s it, I’m not
opening it. I said you can have all the
Tootsie Rolls you want but I am not
opening that cash register,’” said
The man in the silver mask and car-
rying a knife continued to give Wolf
orders during the robbery attempt
“He said, `Walk in the back of the
store,’ I said, `I’m not walking no
place, I’m standing right here,’” Wolf
The elderly store owner stood her
ground when the man flashed a pock-
etknife and placed it on the counter.
“I said, ‘I’ll press a button and I’ll
have somebody here in seconds,’” she
Wolf said the would-be robber
appeared frustrated, looked around,
spotted a security camera in the corner,
grabbed the knife and fled.
Marshfield Police Lt. Darren Larsen
said he’s just glad Wolf is OK.
“In this instance, certainly again
while not recommended with what
took place, we’re just very, very
happy Marge was not injured,” Larsen
told WAOW-TV.
Wolf said she has a few words for the
suspect when police catch up with
“What do I say to him? I say I think
you got some punishments coming,
and it will be a little bit more than
scrubbing the floor,” she said.

During the Civil War, Union troops
spearheaded by the 54th
Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry,
made up of black soldiers, charged
Confederate-held Fort Wagner on
Morris Island, S.C. The Confederates
were able to repel the Northerners,
who suffered heavy losses; the 54th’s
commander, Col. Robert Gould Shaw,
was among those who were killed.

Draper University of Heroes is launching
the first session of its online school this
September that will run in tandem with its
existing boarding school at the former
Benjamin Franklin Hotel in downtown San
The online school is now accepting appli-
cations from entrepreneurial students of all
ages from the world over and will provide an
opportunity for anyone unable to attend the
boarding school to have access to Draper
University’s long list of industry giants and
its cutting-edge curriculum.
Online school students will receive the
same level of entrepreneurial education and
should expect to spend at least 20 hours
each week on their studies. The introductory
session is being offered at a discounted rate
of $399 for the seven-week session.
The price will increase for following ses-
sions, the school announced yesterday.
Students who now board at the university
pay $9,500 a session.
For the initial launch of the online
school, Draper officials expect a few hundred
to sign up. Going forward, however, there
will be no limit to the number of students.
University officials decided to expand its
program in response to the growing demand
from entrepreneurs who are unable to attend
the exclusive boarding school.
More and more students are taking courses
online as the number of college students
enrolled in at least one online course
increased for the ninth straight year, accord-
ing to the Babson Survey Research Group’s
annual survey of more
than 2,500 colleges and
universities — including
both nonprofit and for-
profit institutions.
“Online education is
here, it’s real and it
should be an integral part
of any educational insti-
tution. We are changing
the lives of so many
more aspiring entrepre-
neurs by addressing their global needs with
our disruptive, groundbreaking curriculum,”
Tim Draper, founder of Draper University
and co-founder of Draper Fisher Jurvetson
Venture Fund, wrote in a statement.
Courses offered to online school students
are identical to those offered to students of
the boarding school program. The courses
cover business basics and startup strategies
but do so by using experiential hands-on
methods unique to Draper University.
Classes will include both individual assign-
ments and teamwork projects based on
interest, geography and background.
The university has already had millions of
dollars in venture capital investments hand-
ed to its students after they completed a ses-
Applicants interested in the online school
can apply online at www.online.draperuni-
versity.com. Fall Session applications for
both the online school and boarding school
are due Aug. 5.

Baby-sitter arrested for
child abuse to be arraigned
ASan Mateo baby-sitter arrested
last week on child abuse charges for
injuries allegedly found on a 4-
month-old infant in her care is
scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 13,
San Mateo County District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said
Burlingame police arrested 55-
year-old Kay Arndt on child abuse
charges July 11, one day after
police were made aware that the
infant in the woman’s care was
found with suspicious marks on her
face, Capt. Mike Matteucci said.
The July 10 incident occurred
when the mother of the infant
returned after running some errands
and found strange marks on the
baby’s face, according to police. A
forensic medical examination
revealed that the baby suffered
recent abuse, according to
Arndt was arrested at her San
Mateo home July 11 and booked
into the San Mateo County Jail on
suspicion of child abuse. She post-
ed $50,000 bail the same day of her
arrest, according to Wagstaffe.
Arndt is scheduled to appear in
court at 9 a.m. Aug. 13.
Thieves target rental

San Mateo police have noticed a

Several of these incidents have
occurred in downtown parking lots
and garages, where groups or indi-
viduals from out of town may park
for a meal or to shop, according to
Police are using multiple strate-
gies such as high-profile patrols,
undercover and decoy operations
and surveillance to identify and
arrest the criminals.
Police continue to make arrests
but are finding a large number of
groups are continually traveling to
San Mateo to commit these crimes,
according to police.
Two-alarm fire destroys
home, damages another
Afire that started in a grassy area
destroyed an East Palo Alto home
and damaged a second Wednesday
afternoon, a Menlo Park Fire
Protection District inspector said.
The two-alarm blaze was reported
at 12:54 p.m. in the 2700 block of
Georgetown Street.
The fire was controlled in about
40 minutes after fire crews arrived,
shortly after it was reported burn-
ing at two homes, fire inspector Jon
Johnston said.
One home was destroyed in the
blaze, and the exterior of a second
home was damaged.
It appears the fire started outside
and then spread to the buildings.
Six residents in the destroyed
home were displaced, while resi-
dents in the other home were able to
return, Johnston said.
A backyard area and a shed were
also destroyed in the fire, he said.
A man whom Johnston called a
Good Samaritan attempted to help
handle the fire and was hospitalized
with minor smoke inhalation,
Johnston said.

Anonprofit that includes current
and former tenants of Pete’s Harbor
is applying to lease part of the
marina from the state to continue
its operation even as 411 water-
front housing units go up around it.
Former tenant Alison Madden
filed the application on behalf of
newly formed San Francisco Bay
Marinas for All with the State Lands
Commission which owns the land.
The group hopes to keep the slips
public, which is one of the caveats
Madden and others fighting the pro-
posed development have long
Madden informed the SLC of the
intent at its last meeting but have
yet to make a public announce-
ment. However, another group of
former tenants, Save Pete’s Harbor,
made its own announcement this
week of Madden’s comments at the
July 12 meeting, urging Redwood
City officials to tread carefully with
planning regarding the land adja-
cent to Redwood Creek and Smith
Slough because of the new private
“As parties jockey to control
this valuable area, we strongly urge
the city of Redwood City as well as
the SLC to protect the public trust
by acting diligently in the best
interests of all people and boaters
of California and not simply for
local or private interests,” said
James Lee, Save Pete’s Harbor sec-
retary, in a prepared statement.
The announcement also stated the
group’s sole objective is keeping a
public marina.
For her part, Madden said she and
the group were surprised the other
organization addressed the possible
lease before anything was actually
Regardless, the fate of the outer
harbor where the potentially public
marina lies remains up in the air.
In June, owner Paula Uccelli gave
notice to end her 28-year lease for
the outer harbor, saying she had lit-
tle choice because the commission
issued a breach of contract, ordered
her to make millions of dollars in
capital improvements within 60
days and claimed she had not pro-
vided timely notice of her hus-
band’s 2005 death.
Uccelli plans to sell the land to
developer Pauls Corp. and previ-
ously wanted to transfer the two
harbor leases to Paul Powers.
Powers offered to keep the marina
open if development opponents
backed off but was denied. He then
revamped the proposal to include
the marina which forced the City
Council to return the application to
the Planning Commission.
Uccelli meanwhile is seeking
state permission to remove the
docks currently at the marina.

WASHINGTON — Heading off a cost-
ly increase for returning college stu-
dents, a bipartisan group of senators
reached a deal Wednesday that would
offer students better rates on their
loans this fall but perhaps assign
higher rates in coming years.
The deal would offer students lower
interest rates through the 2015 aca-
demic year, but then rates were expect-
ed to climb above where they were
when students left campus this spring.
The interest rates would be linked to
the financial markets, but Democrats
won a protection for students that rates
would never climb higher than 8.25
percent for undergraduate students.
Graduate students would not pay rates
higher than 9.5 percent and parents’
rates would top out at 10.5 percent.
Under the deal, all undergraduates
this fall would borrow at 3.85 percent
interest rates. Graduate students would
have access to loans at 5.4 percent and
parents would be able to borrow at 6.4
percent. Those rates would climb as
the economy improves and it becomes
more expensive for the government to
borrow money.
The deal was described by
Republican and Democratic aides who
insisted on anonymity because they
were not authorized to discuss the
ongoing negotiations.
Undergraduates last year borrowed at
3.4 percent or 6.8 percent, depending
on their financial need. Graduate stu-
dents had access to federal loans at 6.8
percent and parents borrowed at 7.9
Avote on the agreement could come
as early as Thursday, although it could
be pushed back to the middle of next
week depending on the Senate calen-
The bipartisan agreement is expect-
ed to be the final in a string of efforts
that have emerged from near constant
work to undo a rate hike that took hold
for subsidized Stafford loans on July 1.
Rates for new subsidized Stafford loans
doubled from 3.4 percent to 6.8 per-
cent, adding roughly $2,600 to stu-
dents’ education costs.
Lawmakers from both parties called
the hike senseless but differed on how
to restore the lower rates. Republicans
have pushed for a link between interest
rates and the financial markets.
Senators reach deal on student loans
A bipartisan group of senators reached a deal Wednesday that would offer students
lower interest rates through the 2015 academic year.

ASan Mateo man serving life without
parole for his role in a fatal gas station
robbery at age 16 must be resentenced
with consideration of his young age,
immaturity and failure to appreciate the
consequences, according to a state
appellate court.
The First District Court of Appeal
ruled Monday that Michael Pulido
deserves the possibility of a sentence
with the chance of release. The
Attorney General’s Office can appeal
the ruling, much as it successfully did in
2007 after a federal appeals court over-
turned his conviction based on jury
instruction error.
Pulido was 16 at the time of the mur-
der of Ramon Flores during a robbery of
a Shell station in San Mateo on May
24, 1992. Pulido claimed his uncle,
Michael Aragon, committed the murder
and that Pulido didn’t participate in the
crimes until later, when he opened a
stolen cash register in his uncle’s car.
Aragon claimed that Pulido committed
the murder and robbery alone.
In 1993, he was convicted of first-
degree murder and robbery under the so-
called felony murder rule, in which a
person who participates in a felony
such as robbery can be held liable for a
murder committed during the crime.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe
said he participated in the office discus-
sions to try Pulido as an adult and seek
life without parole. The decision was
made based on the “horrible” murder and
Pulido’s juvenile record.
In Monday’s ruling, the court refer-
enced a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court deci-
sion that judges must consider certain
factors and articulate them before
imposing life without parole on juve-
nile offenders. A mandatory sentence
without consideration violates the
minor offender’s right against cruel and
unusual punishment, the court ruled.
If Pulido is returned to San Mateo
County for sentencing, a new judge
must be named because the trial judge,
Walter Harrington, has died. The current
presiding Judge Robert Foiles will also
have to allow a different judge to do the
naming because he was the prosecutor
in the Pulido case.
On top of the Supreme Court’s ruling,
California law governing juveniles has
also changed since Pulido’s conviction.
Last year, the governor also signed a
bill authored by state Sen. Leland Yee,
D-San Mateo/San Francisco, that
allows judges to reconsider life without
parole sentences for juveniles after they
serve at least 15 years in prison. Ajudge
can then reduce the sentence to 25 years
to life.
Court orders new sentence for teen in murder case
Port of Oakland shuts down after worker’s death
The Port of Oakland was shut down Wednesday as
Longshoremen went on a 24-hour shutdown following the
death of a worker while on the job.
Tractor driver Joy Daniels was killed Tuesday afternoon
while hauling a container at the Hanjin Shipping berth,
said Mike Villeggiante, president of the International
Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10.
Daniels, 47, had a seizure while driving and hit an object,
officials said. She was taken to a hospital and died about an
hour later.
Workers agreed to stand down for 24 hours to honor
Daniels at the fourth-busiest port in the United States as the
union investigates the incident, Villeggiante said.
“When you lose a family member, you mourn,”
Villeggiante told the Bay Area News Group.
Monitoring cockpit systems not easy for pilots
WASHINGTON — Airline pilots often have trouble con-
sistently monitoring automated cockpit safety systems, a
problem that has shown up repeatedly in accidents and may
have been a factor in the recent crash landing of a South
Korean airliner in San Francisco, industry and government
experts said Wednesday.
The human brain isn’t wired to continually pay attention
to instruments that rarely fail or show discrepancies, a
panel of experts told an annual safety conference of the Air
Line Pilots Association, the world’s largest pilots union.
As a result, teaching pilots how to effectively monitor
instruments is now as important as teaching them basic
“stick-and-rudder” flying skills, they said.
DA: Price dispute sparks S.F. jewelry store killings
A man charged with the gruesome deaths of two jewelry

believed he had overpaid by about $300, prosecutors said in
revealing a possible motive for a crime that has shocked
the San Francisco Bay Area for its savagery.
Barry White Jr. went to the Victoga jewelry store inside
the San Francisco GiftCenter & JewelryMart on Friday to
dispute a purchase he had made in May, Assistant District
Attorney Scot Clark told reporters after White’s first appear-

Idea High School is receiving $100,000
in planning grant funding from Next
Generation Learning Challenges, which
announced 38 grant recipients it would be
financing to support the launch and plan-
ning of innovative school models that
accelerate student learning by integrating
online learning with traditional instruction
for grades 6-12.
Idea High School is planned to be a new
design thinking based charter school in fall
2014 and would be part of the San Mateo
Union High School District. The money is
earmarked for the potential school. Idea
High’s organizers, local parents and teachers,
ran a program this summer that lasted two
weeks at Burlingame High School and focused
on hands-on design learning projects.
Dr. Ken Montgomery, assistant principal
at Capuchino High School, is heading Idea
High and said the funding will help launch
the new school, though district approval is
still needed.
The goal is to open up the fall 2014 class
to 100 freshmen, adding on classes each
year following to total a 400-student
school, according to those from Idea High
School. They are also seeking nonprofit
status at the moment.
“We want high school to be the real
world,” Montgomery said. “The core mis-
sion is to prepare students for success in
college and beyond. It’s about knowledge
plus action.”
Montgomery spent Monday through
Thursday in San Francisco at the “Design
Breakthrough School Models,” part of the
NGLC’s first annual school design institute.
He is attending workshops that will help
him shape the potential school and said the
initial funds will be used for the $500 char-
ter application fee to the district and other
basic needs.
Montgomery said the next month will be
spent working with the school district to
hash out the school’s details.
“Next Generation Learning Challenges is
excited about models such as Idea High
School that seek to personalize learning
and that allow students to learn at their own
pace,” the group said in a statement. “The
school model proposes to transform both
teacher and student into designer and is
unique in its incorporation of design-think-
ing, engineering and other 21st century
Betsy Corcoran, who founded the
Burlingame-based education technology
publication EdSurge and volunteer advisor
to Idea High School, said the funding is an
opportunity to start a great school. She said
the school has a “powerful set of ideas.”
Montgomery said the school’s hope is to
receive launch grants from NGLC come
December. Eight schools received these
types of grants worth $150,000 each, plus
an additional $300,000 contingent on 1:1
match, to start schools this fall. The group
handed out a total of $6.6 million in fund-
ing on Monday.
Awards were based on the applicant’s plan
to design schools around personalized,
blended and competency-based education.
Half of the 38 grantees were districts, a shift
from previous years when charter networks
received the majority of grants.
Other members of the founding team for
the high school include eBay’s David Little,
who is a former designer with IDEO, a
design and innovation consulting firm, and
math teacher. Dr. Wendy Little is a former
college psychology professor and currently
directs a preschool run by high school stu-
dents. Christy Knott is a San Mateo Union
High School District health instructor.

$100K a step toward forming new San Mateo Union High School District charter school

WASHINGTON — The Republican-led
House voted on Wednesday to delay core
provisions of President Barack Obama’s
health care law, emboldened by the adminis-
tration’s concession that requiring compa-
nies to provide coverage for their workers
next year may be too complicated.
After a day of heated rhetoric, the House
voted largely along party lines, 264-161, to
delay by one year the so-called employer
mandate of the Affordable Care Act. It voted
251-174 to extend a similar grace period to
virtually all Americans who will be required
to obtain coverage beginning Jan. 1, the
linchpin of the law.
The dual political-show votes marked the
38th time the GOP majority has tried to
eliminate, defund or scale back the unpopu-
lar law since Republicans took control of
the House in January 2011. The House legis-
lation stands no chance in the Democratic-
run Senate.
The goal of the health care law is to pro-
vide coverage to nearly 50 million
Americans without health insurance and
lower skyrocketing costs. But in the three
years since Obama signed his signature law,
the public remains highly skeptical and the
administration’s abrupt decision earlier this
month to delay the employer provision
only fueled more doubts.
Republican foes welcomed the deferment
as a political gift, not only to assail Obama
but to arrange votes that put House
Democrats on record ahead of next year’s
congressional elections. In fact, on the
employer mandate, 35 Democrats broke
with party leaders and joined Republicans in
backing the delay. Twenty-two Democrats
supported a postponement of the health care
requirement for individuals.
“This administration cannot make its own
law work,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich.,
chairman of the Ways and Means
Committee, during House debate.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said
the decision was “a clear signal that even
the administration doesn’t believe the coun-
try is ready to sustain the painful economic
impact this law will have.”
Eager to counter the Republican criticism,
Obama plans to deliver remarks Thursday
focusing on rebates that consumers are
already receiving from insurance companies
under the health care law.
UC Regents confirm
Muslim student to board
SAN FRANCISCO — The University of
California’s governing board confirmed its
first Muslim student member Wednesday,
despite some Jewish groups’ claims that she
marginalized Jewish students and promoted
an anti-Israel agenda.
Regents voted unanimously to ratify UC
Berkeley student Sadia Saifuddin’s nomina-
tion, with one regent, Richard Blum,
abstaining from the vote.
Saifuddin’s critics had urged the regents to
reject the nomination, pointing to a student
government proposal Saifuddin co-spon-
sored calling for the university to divest
from companies with economic ties to the
Israeli military or Israeli settlements on the
West Bank.
Buy-America snag
stalls Vegas high-speed rail plan
LOS ANGELES — The U.S. Department of
Transportation has suspended its review of a
$5.5 billion loan request that is essential
for building a private bullet train between a
Southern California desert community and
the Las Vegas Strip, leaving the future of the
project in jeopardy.
The Obama administration has been eager to
develop new high-speed rail corridors across
the U.S., and former Transportation Secretary
Ray LaHood had publicly blessed the proposed
train, known as XpressWest. But the project
stalled in part because of a snag over federal
rules that call for the line to be constructed and
run with American-made materials.

About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type. It causes a slow
decline in thinking and reasoning ability. Memory trouble that disrupts daily life is one symptom.
By Marilynn Marchione
BOSTON — Memory problems that
are often dismissed as a normal part of
aging may not be so harmless after all.
Noticing you have had a decline
beyond the occasional misplaced car
keys or forgotten name could be the
very earliest sign of Alzheimer’s, sev-
eral research teams are reporting.
Doctors often regard people who
complain that their memory is slip-
ping as “the worried well,” but the new
studies show they may well have rea-
son to worry, said Maria Carrillo, a
senior scientist at the Alzheimer’s
One study found that self-reported
memory changes preceded broader
mental decline by about six years.
Another tied these changes to evidence
on brain scans that dementia is setting
i n.
“Maybe these people know some-
thing about themselves” that their
doctors don’t, “and maybe we should
pay attention to them,” said Dorene
Rentz, a Massachusetts General
Hospital psychologist. She helped run
one of the studies, which were dis-
cussed Wednesday at the Alzheimer’s
Association International Conference
in Boston.
About 35 million people worldwide
have dementia, and Alzheimer’s dis-
ease is the most common type. It caus-
es a slow decline in thinking and rea-
soning ability. Memory trouble that
disrupts daily life is one symptom.
Don’t panic, though: The
researchers are not talking about “sen-
ior moments,” those small, temporary
lapses most everyone has, said
Creighton Phelps, a neuroscientist
with the U.S. National Institute on
Aging. They are talking about real
memory loss, in which the informa-
tion doesn’t come back to you later,
not even when people remind you of
what you forgot, he explained.
A true decline is a change in your
normal pattern. “You’re starting to
forget things now that you normally
didn’t — doctor appointments, lunch-
eon engagements, the kids are coming
over ... things that a year or two ago
you wouldn’t,” said Dr. Ronald
Petersen, director of the Mayo
Clinic’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research
Pati Hoffman, of Carol Stream, Ill.,
near Chicago, used to design menus
and organize events for restaurants but
began forgetting where she filed
things in her computer.

NSA spying under fire:
‘You’ve got a problem’
By Pete Yost
WASHINGTON — In a heated confrontation over domes-
tic spying, members of Congress said Wednesday they
never intended to allow the National Security Agency to
build a database of every phone call in America. And they
threatened to curtail the government’s surveillance authori-
t y.
Top Obama administration officials countered that the
once-secret program was legal and necessary to keep
America safe. And they left open the possibility that they
could build similar databases of people’s credit card transac-
tions, hotel records and Internet searches.
The clash on Capitol Hill undercut President Barack
Obama’s assurances that Congress had fully understood the
dramatic expansion of government power it authorized
repeatedly over the past decade.
The House Judiciary Committee hearing also represented
perhaps the most public, substantive congressional debate
on surveillance powers since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Previous debates have been largely theoretical and legalis-
tic, with officials in the Bush and Obama administrations
keeping the details hidden behind the cloak of classified
That changed last month when former government con-
tractor Edward Snowden leaked documents to the Guardian
newspaper revealing that the NSA collects every
American’s phone records, knowing that the overwhelming
majority of people have no ties to terrorism.
Civil rights groups have warned for years that the gov-
ernment would use the USA Patriot Act to conduct such
wholesale data collection. The government denied it.

WASHINGTON — The Senate voted
by the slimmest margin Wednesday to
end a filibuster against President
Barack Obama’s choice to head the
Labor Department, as this week’s
agreement averting a poisonous parti-
san clash over nominations and the
chamber’s rules barely survived its
toughest test so far.
By 60-40, senators rejected
Republican objections and voted to
halt delaying tactics aimed at killing
Thomas Perez’s nomination to become
labor secretary.
It takes 60 votes to end filibusters.
With all 52 Democrats and both
Democratic-leaning independents
voting to halt the delays,
Republicans supplied the minimum
number of votes needed to keep
Perez’s selection alive — six.
In so doing, the GOP seemed to sig-
nal that while they would adhere to the
agreement, their ranks bristling with
unhappiness over the deal itself and
against Perez in particular. In the deal
announced Tuesday, top Republicans
agreed to end delays against seven
stalled Obama nominations and
Democrats promised to drop efforts to
change Senate rules to limit fili-

ACLU: Police record, store
license plates by the millions
WASHINGTON — You can drive, but you can’t hide.
Arapidly growing network of police cameras is capturing,
storing and sharing data on license plates, making it possible
to stitch together people’s movements whether they are stuck
in a commute, making tracks to the beach or up to no good.
For the first time, the number of license tag captures has
reached the millions, according to a study published
Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union based on
information from hundreds of law enforcement agencies.
Departments keep the records for weeks or years, sometimes
indefinitely, saying they can be crucial in tracking suspicious
cars, aiding drug busts, finding abducted children and more.
Attached to police cars, bridges or buildings — and some-
times merely as an app on a police officer’s smartphone —
scanners capture images of passing or parked vehicles and
pinpoint their locations, uploading that information into
police databases.
Over time, it’s unlikely many vehicles in a covered area
escape notice. And with some of the information going into
regional databases encompassing multiple jurisdictions, it’s
becoming easier to build a record of where someone has been
and when, over a large area.

North Korea arms seizure
could hurt U.S.-Cuba detente
HAVANA — Cuba’s admission that it was secretly send-
ing aging weapons systems to North Korea has turned the
global spotlight on a little-known link in a secretive net-
work of rusting freighters and charter jets that moves
weapons to and from North Korea despite U.N. sanctions.
The revelation that Cuba was shipping the arms, purport-
edly to be repaired and returned, is certain to jeopardize
slowly warming ties between the U.S. and Havana,
although the extent of the damage remains uncertain.
Experts said Cuba’s participation in the clandestine arms
network was a puzzling move that promised little military
payoff for the risk of incurring U.N. penalties and imperil-
ing detente with Washington.
The aging armaments, including radar system parts, mis-
siles, and even two jet fighters, were discovered Monday
buried beneath thousands of tons of raw Cuban brown sugar
piled onto a North Korean freighter that was seized by
Panama as it headed for home through the Panama Canal.
North Korea is barred by the U.N. from buying or selling
arms, missiles or components, but for years U.N. and inde-
pendent arms monitors have discovered North Korean
weaponry headed to Iran, Syria and a host of nations in
Africa and Asia.
Gay marriage: Britain, France in surprise contrast
LONDON — The French like to make fun of the British,
joking about their repressed ways in matters of the heart.
But when it came time to debate same-sex marriage, it was
France that betrayed a deep conservative streak in some-
times violent protests — while the British showed them-
selves to be modern and tolerant.
With little fanfare or controversy, Britain announced
Wednesday that Queen Elizabeth II — hardly a social radical
— had signed into law a bill legalizing same-sex marriages
in England and Wales. France has also legalized gay mar-
riages, but only after a series of gigantic protests attracting
families from the traditional heartland that revealed a
deeply split society.
Official word that the queen had approved the bill drew
cheers in the usually sedate House of Commons.

BEIRUT — Gunmen burst into the
first floor apartment of a pro-govern-

killing him in a hail of nearly 30 bul-

The pre-dawn assassination of
Mohammed Darrar Jammo is the latest
in a series of brazen attacks that have
shown the growing vulnerability of the
Shiite militant group, which has found
itself increasingly on the defensive at

raging next door.
Violence linked to Syria’s war is
increasingly washing across Lebanon,
threatening to unleash large-scale
fighting in a deeply fragmented country

In recent months, violence has
become more recurrent and geographi-
cally widespread, extending to pre-
dominantly Shiite neighborhoods that
had been relatively immune from

On Tuesday, a roadside bomb struck a
Hezbollah convoy near the Syrian bor-
der, wounding two, and last week a car
bombing in south Beirut wounded 53
people in the heart of the militant
group’s bastion of support. Rockets
have recently hit the Hezbollah strong-
hold south of the Lebanese capital.
The attacks come as no surprise.
Although there have been no credible
responsibility claims, Syria-based
extremist Sunni groups have interpret-
ed Hezbollah’s moves in Syria as a dec-
laration of war against their sect and
have threatened to retaliate inside
Hezbollah-controlled areas in
“It is still the beginning of a proba-
bly tough road ahead” for Hezbollah,

gy or direction, but “will actually
strengthen their resolve to continue
what they started,” he said.

rones, developed for military use
at war, are increasingly being
deployed over U.S. skies, looking
for everything from suspicious people
along the border to missing people to fish-
ing violations.
Clearly, Americans are losing yet more
expectation of privacy.
Though there is no evidence they have
been yet, the unmanned aircraft could be
outfitted with cameras and facial recogni-
tion programs to spy on anyone out of
And recent revelations that the Customs
and Border Protection Agency is consider-
ing equipping them with “nonlethal
weapons” should give Americans even
more concern.
The agency has loaned its drones to other
agencies for domestic spying, 30 times in
2010, increasing to 250 last year. Among
the agencies that have used them are the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, the North
Dakota Army National Guard, Texas
Department of Public Safety and the US
Forest Service.
Though drones could offer a tool for
national security, the increasing use and
the potential for equipping them with
weapons show a need for Congress to set
up rules to govern their use and procedures
to ensure adequate oversight of their use.
Some states have also proposed rules
regarding their use, something the
Colorado Legislature should consider.
The American Civil Liberties Union has
recommended limits on their usage, data
retention and weapons, and said policies
regarding their use should be developed by
the public, not law enforcement agencies,
and the rules should be clear and open to
the public.
It’s time for states and Congress to set up
the rules that will protect Americans from
misuse of this new technology.
Breaking a promise
Citing a “higher calling” and a profound
commitment to the dubious notion of gov-
ernmental “stability,” San Carlos
Councilwoman Karen Clapper announced
this week that she will break a promise to
her community and run for City Council in
November. When she was appointed to an
18-month term to replace Andy Klein,
Clapper publicly promised to comply with
the council’s request that she not run this
year. The councilmembers rightfully did
not want to grant the electoral advantage of
incumbency to an appointed (non-elected)
member in the 2013 election.
Respecting the council’s directive, some
highly qualified individuals decided not to
apply for the interim appointment that
Clapper subsequently accepted. Assuming
that the appointee would keep her word,
they deferred their campaigns to this year.
Now she says that her experience and
skills are so compelling that we deserve to
see her name on the ballot this fall. No,
Clapper, I respectfully suggest that we
deserve to have you keep your promise to
San Carlos and sit this one out.

Civil grand jury makes a good choice
While I do not know the names and quali-
fications of the current members of the San
Mateo County Civil Grand Jury, I know
many people who have served in the past
and my opinion is that they are a group of
highly qualified local citizens with no axes
to grind but with a noble desire to help
their fellow citizens and taxpayers.
The recent suggestions made by the
grand jury to improve and rein San Mateo
County’s pension liabilities and local
school district’s excessive appetite for cap-
ital appreciation bonds (CABs) are reason-
able, logical and a must if we are to avoid
and stop the continuous mortgaging of of
our children’s and grandchildren’s futures.
After reading the mandatory responses
given by the involved agencies, I find them
to be a little bit arrogant to say the least.

Oakland riots
I think I speak for a lot of people when I
say I do not understand the people of
Oakland. I understand their right to feel the
way they do but why do people destroy the
own city. It’s called shooting yourself in
the foot. I would never burn my house down
because I didn’t agree with what my neigh-
bor did. Wake up Oakland, there are other
ways to get your point across.

Stand your ground?
George Zimmerman was found not guilty
for the shooting and killing of teenager
Trayvon Martin. After being told by the
911 dispatcher that official police officers
were on their way and to break off follow-
ing Trayvon, Zimmerman ignored dispatch-
ers and proceeded to follow Trayvon, and
after a physical altercation, shot and killed
this 16-year, 21-day-old teenager.
In another case in Florida, a black
woman, Marissa Alexander, who had never
been arrested before she fired a bullet at a
wall one day in 2010 to scare off her hus-
band when she felt he was threatening her
and nobody was hurt, was sentenced to 20
years in prison.
I guess when it comes to “standing your
ground,” it helps if you’re not black.

The future of Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid
Tensions are rising for millions of retired
seniors, the working poor and handicapped
regarding the future of Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid which have provid-
ed them with health care and financial bene-
fits for more than 50 years — benefits that
were paid for by themselves by giving a
portion of their monthly income into
financial support of the programs during all
their years in the workforce with the prom-
ise that part of it would be returned to pro-
vide them with financial security during
their years of retirement.
Members in Congress were charged with
overseeing that their financial resources
remained sound and should have gradually
raised taxes as the programs were forced to
extend and expand their services to meet
public demands, but the oversight commit-
tee neglected to do so and that is why the
programs face a financial crises today.
Democrats in Congress want to continue
the programs in their current format and
preserve their future by raising taxes, while
Republicans want to privatize those pro-
grams and give all those in the programs
financial vouchers who are authorized to
receive them.
That is why the two parties in Congress
remain deadlocked and miles apart upon
what legislation is needed to solve the
future of the programs and why tensions are
increasing for those millions mentioned

Internal relations
verybody needs a scapegoat. Rather,
make that a scape intern. Things get
real? You-know-what hit the fan?
Somebody’s got to go down and an intern is
a heck of a better sacrifice than, say, any-
body with any real authority or decision-
making ability.
The National Transportation Safety Board
knows this. This week, as the board and
local television station KTVU pointed fin-
gers and ate crow over the now-infamous
clip of an on-air anchor reading fake names
of the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 pilots, the
federal transportation agency chalked up the
potentially offensive boo-boo on its end to
an unnamed summer
intern. The intern was
acting outside his
authority but trying to
be helpful when he
confirmed the names
provided by KTVU, the
NTSB said. Within
days, as the public
pondered how nobody
managed to catch the
audible gag of each
name, the intern was toast.
Oddly, KTVU officials have yet to blame or
ax an intern on its end. Bad move. The sta-
tion immediately apologized, which is
notable. Yet without a body to throw under
the bus, the station leaves viewers the
opportunity to wonder who received this
mysterious information, managed to forget
that the pilot names had already been
released so this was not news and called this
alleged intern at the NTSB without manag-
ing to figure out a name prank straight out of
“Porky’s” and “The Simpsons.”
No matter if the station has any actual liv-
ing and breathing interns. Just make one up.
When called on to produce said intern, sta-
tion honchos can claim he or she resides in
Canada alongside any number of chronically
absent significant others through the genera-
Chances are this mysterious NTSB intern
is a similar figment of one’s blame-assign-
ing imagination. Interns have gotten a bad
rap since the time Monica Lewinsky gave
new meaning to the position. Even now,
interns — particularly the lowly, unpaid
ones — are in the crosshairs as differing
camps debate their role and compensation in
light of a federal court ruling on wage and
hour laws. If an intern gets canned, there will
be no Facebook petitions, no viral protests,
no ink space given to conspiracy theories.
Bottom line — interns are the best scape-
goats. Blame them for anything. Global
warming. Stock market fluctuations.
Terrorism. Congressional filibusters. The
BARTstrike. Justin Bieber’s dislike of mop
buckets and Bill Clinton. Paula Deen.
Sinkholes. Sharknado.
In fact, the next time a reader or source has
an issue with something that runs in the
Daily Journal, we plan to blame Boris. Boris
is our newest intern, dreamt up one afternoon
after learning another publication had
reportedly dismissed an editor on which a
story containing a fabricated quote was
blamed. Having never heard of this person,
we immediately assumed it was a figment of a
higher-up’s imagination. We also immedi-
ately latched onto the idea as a perfect way
to escape blame for all future typos and mis-
“I’m so sorry,” we will say, “but it was
Boris, our intern. I mean, our editor. He will
be summarily executed. Or at least shown his
walking papers.”
Then Boris’ name will be erased from the
newspaper staff box only to be replaced with
an equally mysterious “Bob” or enigmatic
“Fortunato” who themselves will remain
until the next complaint is lodged. The situa-
tion will be addressed, nobody is actually
fired and everybody feels satisfied.
And if questions are raised about the identi-
ty of these otherwise unseen scapegoats, the
public answer is obvious: I’d love to share
but that matter is internal.

NEWYORK — Some soothing words
from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke pushed the stock market to
slender gains on Wednesday. Higher
earnings for several major companies
also helped.
Bernanke said that the U.S. central
bank had no firm timetable for cutting
back on its bond purchases. The Fed
would consider reducing its stimulus
program if the economy improves, but
Bernanke emphasized in his testimony
to Congress that the reductions were
“by no means on a preset course.”
The central bank is currently buying
$85 billion of bonds a month to keep
interest rates low and encourage bor-
rowing. Concerns that the Fed was
poised to start easing back on that
stimulus before the economy had
recovered sufficiently caused the stock
market to pull back in June.
The concern has been that “the Fed
was going to dial the (stimulus) down
to zero regardless how the economy
was doing,” said Phil Orlando, chief
market strategist at Federated
Investors. “I don’t think that’s the
case at all...the Fed is going to evalu-
ate the economic landscape,” before it
cuts its stimulus, Orlando said.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
climbed 4.65 points, or 0.3 percent,
to 1,680.91. The Nasdaq composite
rose 11.50 points, or 0.3 percent, to
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 18.67 points, or 0.1 percent, to
The Dow was held back by American
Express and Caterpillar. The credit card
company’s stock slumped $1.47, or
1.9 percent, to $76.80 after European
regulators proposed to cap the lucra-
tive processing fees the card company
Caterpillar fell $1.50, or 1.7 per-
cent, to $86.67 after prominent short-
seller Jim Chanos said he was shorting
the stock because it was exposed to a
slump in the mining industry. In a
presentation at the ‘Delivering Alpha’
conference, broadcast by CNBC,
Chanos said Caterpillar was “tied to
the wrong products, at the wrong
Bernanke’s comments had a stronger
impact on the Treasury market than on
the stock market.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note fell to 2.49 percent from 2.53
percent late Tuesday as investors
bought U.S. government bonds. The
yield has been declining since July 5,
when it surged to 2.74 percent after the
government reported that hiring was
strong in June.
If Treasury yields climb too fast, it
worries stock investors because of the
impact that rising interest rates have
on the wider economy. For example,
higher mortgage rates, which are
linked to Treasury yields, would slow
demand for homes.
The stock market has climbed back
to record levels in July following its
brief slump in June, when the S&P 500
logged its first monthly decline since
October on concern that the Federal
Reserve would ease back on its eco-
nomic stimulus too quickly. The S&P
500 has gained 4.7 percent in July
after falling 1.5 percent in June. It
climbed to a record 1,682 on Monday.
The index is up 17.9 percent this
year, and stocks could head higher still
as the economy improves in the sec-
ond half of the year, says Rob Lutts,
chief investment officer at Cabot
Money Management.
“Expect better things,” said Lutts.
“The market’s going to churn its way
higher from here.”
Stocks edge upas Bernanke reassures on stimulus
By Barbara Ortutay
NEW YORK — A challenging over-
seas market is weighing on eBay’s out-
look for the second half of the year,
sending shares lower in after-hours
trading Wednesday even though the e-
commerce bellwether’s second-quarter
results were roughly in line with Wall
Street’s expectations.
EBay shares fell $3.55, or 6.2 per-
cent, to $53.83 in extended trading.
Revenue rose by 14 percent in the
April-June period, as its PayPal busi-
ness and namesake online marketplace
continued to grow. But net income
declined amid higher expenses.
The company’s shares fell by about
6 percent to $53.95 in extended trad-
ing after the results came out on
Wednesday. Though he called the quar-
ter’s results strong, CEO John
Donahoe said economic weakness in
Europe and Korea will “continue to be
a challenge” in the second half of the
year. The company kept its full-year
guidance unchanged, but indicated that
results may come in at the lower end of
the expected revenue and profit range.
EBay Inc. earned $640 million, or
49 cents per share, in the April-June
period. That’s down 8 percent from
$692 million, or 53 cents per share, in
the same months a year earlier.
Adjusted to exclude one-time items,
per-share earnings rose to 63 cents
from 56 cents and matched Wall
Street’s expectations.
Revenue grew by 14 percent, to
$3.88 billion from $3.4 billion.
Analysts polled by FactSet expected
$3.89 billion.
Donahoe said that eBay’s core busi-
nesses — PayPal and its e-commerce
sites — are going strong. PayPal,
which has been the company’s fastest-
growing segment, added 4.7 million
active registered accounts, ending the
quarter with 132 million users.
Revenue at PayPal grew 20 percent
to $1.6 billion as eBay continued to
expand its once online-only payments
service to brick-and-mortar stores.
EBay 2Q profit slides; Europe remains weak spot
First Republic 2Q income jumps 29 percent
SAN FRANCISCO — First Republic Bank said
Wednesday its second-quarter net income jumped 29 per-
cent, helped by and increase in lending and a rise in
The San Francisco-based bank earned $104 million, or
77 cents per share, for the three months ended June 30.
That was up from $80.6 million, or 60 cents per share, in
the same quarter of 2012.
The results beat Wall Street predictions, sending shares
higher in Wednesday trading.
Analysts, on average, expected a profit of 74 cents per
share, according to FactSet.
First Republic said its loans outstanding, deposits and
wealth management assets all increased from a year ago.
Loan originations increased 34 percent to $5.3 billion.

OAKLAND — The Oakland
Athletics are hardly accustomed to
playing in first place at the All-
Star break.
Yet the top spot seems to fit
them just fine at the moment —
even if it’s quite a change for the
low-budget club long known for
those second-half surges that
make for a dramatic September.
The A’s are all alone atop the AL
West at the break for the first time
since 1990. And that’s saying
something for the defending divi-
sion champions, who last June 30
trailed the Texas Rangers by 13
games before rallying to capture
the West crown on the season’s
final day.
It didn’t hurt for momentum that
outfielder Yoenis Cespedes won
the Home Run Derby during All-
Star festivities Monday in New
At 56-39, the A’s are making
another statement after surprising
everybody with a stunning sweep
of the Rangers to end the 2012
regular season and steal away the
AL West title from Texas.
“I really believe that the guys in
this clubhouse really believe that
we have one of the best teams in
baseball,” third baseman Josh
Donaldson said.
“It’s just one of those things,
where when we get an opportunity
to play a good team like the Red
Sox or the Pirates or the
Cardinals, we’re out there sending
a message that we are a good team,
that we’re for real.”
Cespedes has continued to make
strides in his second major league
season, and perhaps winning the
Derby will help propel him into
the second half.
The second-year slugger from
Cuba has 15 home runs and 43
RBIs. And Oakland announced
Wednesday it would open the gates
an hour earlier to fans for remain-
ing Friday home games so they
can watch Cespedes and others
take batting practice.
“He’s not happy about his aver-
age right now but his production’s
still there for a guy who’s hitting
(.225),” manager Bob Melvin
said. “He’s always on the verge of
a hot streak.”
Oakland has seven wins in 10
extra-inning games, and six
walkoff victories already after 14
last season led the majors. The A’s
also have their first winning first
half since 2008 — with plans on
making another run at an underdog
division title.

San Mateo wins Section 3 title
By Nathan Mollat
UNION CITY — The San Mateo
National 9-10 Little League All-
Star team faced a daunting task:
beat Union City National two
times to claim the Section 3 cham-
San Mateo took care of business
Tuesday with an emphatic 11-0
win over Union City, setting up
Wednesday’s winner-take-all
championship game at Veterans’
Park in Union City.
Despite Tuesday’s win, San
Mateo acting manager Jerry
Berkson had a bad feeling about
“I didn’t have a good feeling
coming into today (Wednesday),”
Berkson said, adding he felt his
team was flat coming into the
Berkson’s worst fears played out
through the first three innings as
Union City starting pitcher Dago
Flores kept San Mateo off balance
at the plate. In the fourth inning,
however, San Mateo broke
through with a pair of runs to tie
the game and then won the Section
3 title on Nico Button’s RBI dou-
ble to left-center field in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning to drive in
Connor Brady, who was pinch run-
ning for Connor Dorgan. He had
opened the inning with a walk.
“We had to claw back,” Berkson
said. “I told them we had to get
into their bullpen.”
Once Union City starting pitch-
er Dago Flores reached his pitch
limit in the fourth inning,
Berkson’s strategy paid off. After
going hitless and scoreless over
its first three innings, San Mateo
had four hits and scored three
times against two Union City
relievers over the final three
It was the perfect ending for
Button, who picked up the win on
the mound with 5 2/3 innings of
work. With Brady at first and two
outs in the bottom of the sixth,
Union City decided to intentional-
ly walk No. 2 hitter Jake Willerup
to pitch to Button. The lefty wast-
ed little time, jumping on the first
pitch he saw and driving it to the

Success hasn’t always come
easy for Redwood City native Juan
Hernandez — which is ironic con-
sidering the ease with which he
disposes of opponents inside a
boxing ring.
With a 2-1 record as a profes-
sional and 16-2 as an amateur,
Hernandez — a 2005 graduate of
Sequoia High School — has never
lacked the physical attributes, raw
talent and power that it takes to be
a force inside the squared circle.
But, as the Daily Journal has
learned over the last couple of
years in following Hernandez’s
career, the injury bug can be, and
has been, unkind to Hernandez.
After winning an emotional
debut in 2010 by knocking out
Seth Keeling in just 22 seconds,
Hernandez has been dealt hand and
elbow injuries that have slowed
his ascent up the boxing ranks. It
was in a unanimous decision loss
to Lamont Williams of Fairfield
(despite regis-
tering a knock-
down of
Williams in the
first round) that
He r na nde z ’s
elbow spurs
flared up. And
his road to
recovery lasted
an entire year.
But as his
longtime co-trainer, Rick Nava of
Redwood City’s Police Activities
League, said, “it’s now or never for
him. If he’s going to make a real
run, it has to happen now.”
Now will come July 26 at the
Fox Theatre in Redwood City
when the venue hosts yet another
Fight Night at the Fox.
Hernandez, a cruiserweight, is
among a trio of San Mateo County
fighters who will take to the ring.
Hernandez comes in with that 2-
1 record, but there’s a little more at
veryone has seen the evo-
lution of sports over even
the last couple decades.
Professional athletes are bigger,
faster and stronger than ever
before. That trickles down to all
levels of athletics, Little League
baseball included.
As I watched Belmont-Redwood
Shores square off against San
Ramon in the championship
game of the 11-12 Section 3 tour-
nament Tuesday night in San
Lorenzo, one
of the first
things that
crossed my
mind was:
someone is
going to get
hurt. I didn’t
mean at that
game on that
day, but to
see preteens
almost 6 feet tall and near 200
pounds playing on fields whose
dimensions they dwarf, combined
with the intense focus and train-
ing a lot of kids do, it could all
end up with someone getting
But this is not a damnation of
Little League, not by any means. I
just think the time may be now to
start thinking about updating the
dimensions of the diamond.
Granted, these are all-star teams
made up of the best players an
entire league has to offer. Not all
players are this physically gifted,
but a majority of the ones who are
play on all-star teams.
Keeping that in mind, consider
this: basepaths for 12-and-under
players in Little League are 60
feet, while the pitching mound is
46 feet away from home. Outfield
fences are not supposed to deeper
than 200 feet.
The teams I saw Tuesday night
looked like they were crammed
onto the field. It truly looked like
adults playing on a Little League
diamond. Both starting pitchers
threw gas with knee-buckling
curveballs, and hitters waved bats
around like fly swatters. When
San Ramon’s first baseman, a kid
who was probably close to 6 feet
tall and at least 180 pounds, came
to the plate and rifled a ball foul, I

The eyes of American Legion baseball
will be focused on San Bruno starting
San Bruno Park will host the American
Legion Area 2 tournament in what will
prove to be three days of high-end baseball
for San Mateo County.
San Bruno is seeded fourth as the host
team. San Mateo’s Shockers is the No. 1
seed, the Redwood City Blues and Post 105
are seeded second while Palo Alto comes
into the tournament as the No. 3 seed.
“We feel confident,” said San Bruno man-
ager Lynn Berliner. “We have kids that are
playing in other tournaments so we lose
some of players. But you know, we do our
best and that’s all I can say. ”
It’s been a tough season for San Bruno,
who at times, only had just enough players
to fill out the line-up card. That said,
Berliner believes his team will compete
when they take on San Mateo — the tour-
nament favorites — in the opening day of
the tourney.
“We have a decent team,” Berliner said.
“It’s one of my better teams that I’ve had in
previous years. We’re a little slacked on
pitching, but we can hit and play pretty
good defense. So, the 16 kids should be
ready and hopefully we do very well in the
Redwood City and Palo Alto will battle it
out in Thursday’s other game.
The double-elimination tournament is
scheduled for two games on Thursday, Friday
with first pitches and 4 and 7 p.m. respec-
tively. Saturday’s games are scheduled for
11 a.m. and 2 p.m. starts with an “if neces-
sary” game on the calendar for Sunday.
“San Mateo is a really good team — a real-
ly good team,” Berliner said. “We’ve played
them twice this year and we played them
pretty well the first four or five innings, and
then we just kind of lost our pitching.
They’re a good team, but they can be beat.
Anybody can be beat.”

The San Jose Earthquakes announced
Wednesday that the club has acquired
Salvadoran national team midfielder Jaime
Alas on loan from Rosenborg BK pending
receipt of his ITC and P-1 visa. Per league
and team policy, terms of the deal were not
Alas, 23, appeared in three Tippeligaen
games for Rosenborg BK in 2012 and also
came off the bench in two Europa League
matches, including a 1-0 loss against
German power Bayer Leverkusen. He joined
the Norwegian side on Aug. 1, 2012 via
transfer from Salvadoran side CD Luis Angel
Alas began his professional career with
CD Firpo where he parlayed his success to a
Salvadoran national team callup in 2010 at
the age of 21.
“We’re really excited to have Jaime,” said
Earthquakes interim head coach Mark
Watson via press release. “We’ve been mon-
itoring him for a long time and we’re
delighted to finally have him on board.”
Alas has been a mainstay on the
Salvadoran national team. He has 33 caps
and six goals since debuting with La Selecta
in 2010. He scored his first goal with the
national squad in a 2-0 win against
Nicaragua in the 2011 Copa
Centroamericana. Alas was also a key piece
of La Selecta’s 2012 CONCACAF Olympic
Qualifying squad; he started in each of his
country’s four games in the tournament and
scored a 94th-minute goal in a 3-3 draw
against the United States to knock the
Americans out of contention while advanc-
ing El Salvador to the semifinals.
Alas is currently with La Selecta for the
2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. He will report
to San Jose’s camp following his participa-
tion in the tournament.
“Jaime’s a player who we had in a year ago
and during our 2013 preseason. We’ve kept
tabs on him and are excited to bring him
into the fold,” said Earthquakes general
manager John Doyle.
In other Quakes news, the team announced
it will host Chris Wondolowski Bobblehead

The Earthquakes and Wells Fargo are team-
ing up for the third-consecutive year for a
commemorative bobblehead giveaway. The
2013 version will pay homage to
Wondolowski’s record-tying 27-goal sea-
son and second career Budweiser Golden
Boot. That haul also included an MLS-record
11 game-winning goals and a career-high
seven assists.
For his efforts, Wondolowski was reward-
ed with the league’s highest individual
honor, the Volkswagen MLS Most Valuable
Wondolowski was the featured player for
the club’s first collaborative bobblehead
giveaway with Wells Fargo in 2011. That
statuette included a special golden boot on
Wondolowski’s right foot, a reference to the
award he won for leading the league with 18
goals in 2010. The Danville native and
Landon Donovan are the only two players
in club history to be recognized twice with
commemorative bobbleheads.

Prepping for British Open
unlike any other major
GULLANE, Scotland — The practice round
schedule posted each day at Muirfield is not
the only way to determine how players are
getting ready for the British Open.
Johnson Wagner’s name was on the tee
sheet at St. Andrews over the weekend.
Geoff Ogilvy could be found on the other
side of the country, on links courses like
Turnberry, Royal Troon and Western Gailes.
Justin Rose was at North Berwick. So were
Bubba Watson and Luke Donald, who got in
plenty of golf along the Firth of Forth the
week before the British Open.
It’s not unusual for players to take off
from their regular tours a week before a
major to prepare. What’s different about the
British Open — isn’t everything? — is that
preparations aren’t limited to the course
they will be playing.
“You can prepare for the U.S. Open on the
range,” Ogilvy said Wednesday. “But you
can only prepare for The Open on the
course. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be
the course you’re playing. The seaside
courses here, they’re the only courses with
turf like this, with sand like this. There’s
something different about the seaside wind
in Scotland. ... You can fly to Shanghai or
Abu Dhabi and work on what you need at
home. But you can’t work on what you need
at home until you get here.”
Tiger Woods, a three-time Open champi-
on, arrived Sunday morning and has played
nine holes a day. There was a time he would
leave home a week early and head to Ireland
with Mark O’Meara and David Duval, both
former Open champions, and play the links
courses there.

Despite going hitless for three innings,
San Mateo had its chances to score. It
loaded the bases on three walks but could
not cash in the first inning. It had two more
base runners reach in the second and put run-
ners on second and third with one out in the
third and again came up empty.
Jake Calaveras finally got to Flores when
he blooped a single into shallow right field
to key his team’s two-run fourth. He was
later erased on a force play at third, but a
walk to Kai Lim and Jason Villar’s fielder’s
choice put runners on first and second for
Willerup. After taking ball one from Union
City reliever Martinez, Willerup launched a
drive to deep left field, barely missing a
home run. Lim scored easily from second

sign at third, managed to tie the score all the
way from first, despite a collision at the
plate. The throw beat him by plenty, but the
Union City catcher could not hold on to the

STANFORD — Hall of Fame Stanford
women’s basketball coach Tara VanDerveer
has received a new long-term contract.
The coach said Wednesday she signed a
new deal without offering
specifics, and the school
is not announcing the
number of additional
years on the contract —
only saying it is a long-
term pact. VanDerveer
had two years remaining
on her previous contract,
through the 2014-15 sea-
son. The Cardinal missed
reaching a sixth straight
Final Four in VanDerveer’s 27th season at
Stanford and 34th overall as a Division I
head coach. They lost in the NCAA tourna-
ment’s Spokane Regional semifinals, 61-59
to Georgia, to finish the season 33-3.
VanDerveer, who turned 60 last month, is
742-152 at Stanford and 894-203 overall.
She is six wins shy of becoming the fifth
women’s basketball coach with 900 victo-
Athletic director Bernard Muir indicated
after the season that he looked forward to
the program continuing to perform at such a
high level with VanDerveer leading the way
— likely for as long as she wants to stick
“Simply put, Tara VanDerveer is one of
the great educators in the game of basket-
ball,” Muir said. “Beyond the game, Tara
means so much to Stanford and we take great
pleasure in knowing that she will positive-
ly impact our student-athletes for years to
Stanford’s team leaves in late August for a
tour of Italy.
“We are so much improved, I am excited!”
VanDerveer wrote in a message. “All good
on The Farm!”
VanDerveer remained positive as her inex-
perienced team struggled early last season
after losing WNBA No. 1 overall draft pick
Nnemkadi Ogwumike following a fifth
straight Final Four trip. Stanford stunned
then-No. 1 Baylor and Brittney Griner on
Nov. 16 in Honolulu.
The Cardinal had their nation-best 82-
game winning streak at home snapped in a
lopsided 61-35 rout by Connecticut on Dec.
29, then they lost another in front of the
spirited Maples Pavilion crowd to rival
California to end an 81-game unbeaten run
against conference opponents. Cal went on
to earn the program’s first Final Four berth.
VanDerveer is always eager to see the
West Coast shine on the national stage, and
will look for big things from Chiney
Ogwumike in her upcoming senior season.
Stanford has reached 25 straight NCAA
tournaments, has six consecutive 30-win
seasons and is the 11-time reigning confer-
ence champion — having won both the reg-
ular-season and conference tournament
titles the past seven years.
“I have been extremely fortunate to work
with an incredible staff as well as the bright-
est and most motivated student-athletes
here at Stanford for nearly 30 years, and I
look forward to the privilege of many
more,” VanDerveer said. “It is to them and to
athletic director Bernard Muir that I say
thank you for the opportunity to continue
leading the Stanford women’s basketball
program into its bright future.”

LOS ANGELES — LeBron James padded
his trophy collection, receiving three at the
ESPYAwards, including male athlete of the
year for helping the Miami Heat win a sec-
ond straight NBAchampionship.
James also won in the
championship perform-
ance and NBAplayer cate-
gories, completing a
sweep of the three awards
he won last year. He
shared in the best team
award Wednesday night.
“We went through so
much adversity,” team-
mate Ray Allen said. “We
did everything we could
to fight, scratch and claw to put ourselves in
that moment.”
James beat out Miguel Cabrera of the
Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Vikings running
back Adrian Peterson and Olympic swimmer
Michael Phelps for male athlete honors.
James mentioned his fellow nominees,
then told them, “This is for all four of us,
man, but I’m just keeping it at my house.”
Serena Williams won two awards, includ-
ing female athlete of the year. She defeated
a pair of Olympians, gymnast Gabby
Douglas and swimmer Missy Franklin, and
former Baylor basketball star Brittney
Griner. Williams didn’t attend because
she’s playing a tournament in Sweden.
Peterson and Phelps also won two
awards each.
Jon Hamm, the star of AMC’s “Mad Men”
and a noted St. Louis Cardinals fan, hosted
the 21st annual show from the Nokia
He joked it was “the world’s largest gath-
ering of people wearing sunglasses
indoors” as the cameras caught James and
NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick behind
Hamm got in some digs about former Los
Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard.
“We thought it would be nice to honor
Dwight Howard with his greatest moments
with the Lakers,” Hamm said as no film
clips appeared on the screen behind him
while the crowd laughed.
Hamm noted the talk about possible sus-
pensions resulting from baseball’s latest
drug investigation has included Alex
“That’s OK, Yankee fans are used to him
not showing up for the second half of the
season,”he joked.
Quarterback Johnny Manziel of Texas
A&M won male college athlete honors after
flying in earlier from Hoover, Ala., where he
attended SEC media day. Griner, who now
plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury,
won female college athlete.
Peterson won trophies for NFL player and
best comeback, while Cabrera won as best
MLB player.
Williams won female tennis player, giv-
ing her eight career ESPYs.
Phelps also claimed best male Olympian,
while teenage swimming sensation Missy
Franklin won best female Olympian.
Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers
won as breakthrough athlete. Rick Pitino
won as coach-manager for guiding the
Louisville Cardinals to a national basket-
ball championship.
The best game was Game 6 of the NBA
finals between the Heat
and San Antonio Spurs.
The award for best
upset went to Florida Gulf
Coast’s men’s basketball
team, a No. 15 seed that
upset No. 2 seed
Georgetown in the NCAA
The best moment award
singled out 7-year-old
Jack Hoffman’s 69-yard
touchdown run at Nebraska’s spring game in
April, which was replayed on national TV
and viewed more than 2 million times on
YouTube. The boy from Atkinson, Neb., has
brain cancer.
As his father spoke, Jack held the big tro-
phy that blocked part of his face.
Sidney Crosby won NHL player, while
Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls
won MLS player.
South Carolina football player Jadeveon
Clowney won best play for his hit on
Michigan’s Vincent Smith in which he
knocked the runner on his back with a hel-
met-toppling smack, then reached out with
one hand to snare the ball.
Helping out Hamm with comedy bits were
Jack McBrayer of “30 Rock” as a befuddled
NFL replacement referee and Jay Pharoah of
“Saturday Night Live” as Jay-Z explaining
how in his new gig as a sports agent he only
represents winners.
Former “SNL” star Bill Hader spoofed
Russian president Vladimir Putin, who was
accused by New England Patriots owner
Robert Kraft of stealing his 2005 Super
Bowl ring.
In the bit, Hader showed off his other
sports collectibles, including the Stanley
Cup, some of Phelps’ Olympic gold medals
and “the ring Kobe gave his wife that one
time for no reason.”
The Arthur Ashe Courage award went to
“Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin
Roberts, who underwent a bone marrow
transplant last fall to treat a life-threatening
blood and bone marrow disease. She was off
work for five months before returning to her
TV job. James presented Roberts with the
award, and first lady Michelle Obama saluted
her via video.
Roberts received a standing ovation and
noted her friendship with the late Ashe.
“At this moment I’m filled with such grat-
itude,” she said.
The Jimmy VAward for Perseverance was
given to father-and-son duo Dick and Rick
Hoyt by actor-director Ben Affleck. The
younger Hoyt was born with cerebral palsy
and is unable to use his hands and legs. His
73-year-old father Dick pushes him in a cus-
tom-made running chair, and together they
have participated in more than 1,000
endurance events, including 31 Boston
“I don’t think you could find two guys
more proud to represent the city of Boston,”
Dick Hoyt said.
His son spoke through computer-generat-
ed voice technology, saying, “I can’t hardly
believe we are here. Thirty-seven years ago
nobody would even talk to us ... It only
proves the wisdom of Jimmy v’s words,
‘Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.”’
The winners in most categories were
determined by fan voting.

HOOVER, Ala.— Johnny Manziel strode
into Southeastern Conference Media Days
and was swarmed by hundreds of reporters
and dozens of television cameras.
He shook some hands and the cameras
flashed as he settled into his seat, the star of
the SEC’s latest must-see TV show.
If the Texas A&M quarterback was trou-
bled by all the attention, he didn’t show it.
Dressed in a dark blue suit, checkered shirt
and striped tie, Manziel answered every
question thrown his way during the 30-
minute Q&A, some were even about foot-
ball. He said he largely enjoys the spotlight
that comes with winning the Heisman
Trophy — even if it sometimes includes
unsavory headlines.
“This is just another day,” Johnny
Football said with a grin.
The 20-year-old sophomore and face of
college football spent most of his three-
hour stay at the Wynfrey Hotel, bouncing
from one interview session to another. He
mostly talked about an eventful offseason
that has frequently made him a trending
“I don’t feel like I’ve done anything that’s
catastrophic,” Manziel said. “Of course,
I’ve made my mistakes. It’s time to grow
The most recent misstep came last week-
end at the Manning Passing Academy.
Manziel was one of many college quarter-
back counselors at the camp for high school
prospects run by Archie, Peyton and Eli
Manning in Louisiana, but he left before it
was over.
He says he missed activities because he
“overslept,” and his absence had nothing to
do with being out the night before.
“I was not asked to leave. It was a mutual
decision,” Manziel said.

well,” Donaldson said. “We’ve got a lot of
guys in the lineup that can do some damage,
not only just hitting home runs but getting
on base. ... From 1 to 25, we feel like we
can put anybody in the game and they’re
going to be successful.”
Who would have thought Angels stars
Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and Co. would
sit a surprising 11 games back at this stage?
The A’s lead Texas by two games.
“They’ve got a pretty good team to work
with, too,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.
“It was very impressive what they did last
year, because I don’t think they envisioned
they’d make the playoffs. At the beginning
it was kind of like, ‘Do the best you can and
we’ll worry about the future later. ’ I don’t
think BoMel (Melvin) got into that,
because you can’t have that attitude as a
manager, because that transfers to your
General manager Billy Beane did
acknowledge his club was in rebuilding
mode, so the A’s overachieved. They lost in
the deciding Game 5 of the AL division
series to the Tigers, who went on to be
swept by the San Francisco Giants in the
World Series.
Melvin has done an admirable job mixing
and matching to cope with injuries to key
players such as center fielder Coco Crisp.
Oakland’s substitutes have done their share.
“It shows that there are 25 guys in this
room that, when used properly, can compete
and win games,” said Nate Freiman, who
singled home the winning run against
Mariano Rivera in an 18-inning win over
the Yankees last month.
“And it shows that the guys making the
decisions are good at making the decisions
and they know how best to use guys.”
Donaldson’s steady bat is a key reason the
A’s are in the lead. He is hitting a team-best
.310 with 16 home runs and 61 RBIs and
107 hits, most in the first half by an A’s
player since Carney Lansford’s 118 in
Donaldson is the first A’s player to bat at
least .300 with 15 or more home runs before
the break since Jason Giambi in 2001.
Donaldson didn’t make the AL All-Star
team, with closer Grant Balfour the lone
representative in place of 40-year-old, 12-
game winner Bartolo Colon.
These young, unselfish A’s are accustomed
to being snubbed, and certainly don’t mind
the role of overlooked opponent. Though
that image might be wearing off in a hurry if
they keep this good thing going.
Along with Donaldson, Brandon Moss
also has 16 home runs.
“It’s fun to watch our lineup hit,” lefty
starter Tommy Milone said. “There’s no
easy out. That makes it tough, especially
for other pitchers. It’s good for us because
we go out there and feel comfortable with
any lineup that we put out there.”

stake for him than just a tally in the win
column. In making his return to the ring,
Hernandez is out to prove he is finally back
at 100 percent.
“Injuries have been slowing us down,”
Nava said. “And it’s a shame because there
are a lot of opportunities in the Bay Area
right now, with Andre Ward, Nonito Donaire
and Robert Guerrero. There are a lot of peo-
ple out there that want to see Juan fight. But
it’s unfortunate he’s been set back by
injury. ”
Nava said Hernandez has returned to his
regular training regimen and is packing a
lot of “pop” in his punches — something
Hernandez fans have come to expect
through his decorated amateur career and his
pair of knockouts as a pro.
“He is not having any issues with that
(his bruised hand),” Nava said.
Hernandez joins Filipino sensation
Bruno Escalante (8-1-1, 4 KOs) and B Street
Gym’s Ricardo Pinell (4-0-1) as part of the
July 26 card.
Escalante, who trains out of Undisputed
Gym in San Carlos, is the co-main event.
He’ll face Mexico’s Manuel Galaviz at 115
pounds. In the other featured bout of the
evening, Paul “El Gallo Negro” Mendez of
Walnut Creek defends his IBAmiddleweight
championship against Dashon “Fly Boy”
Escalante and Pinell won fights at the last

there has been so much opportunity in the
Bay Area,” Nava, an 11-year volunteer box-
ing coach at PAL, said.

shuddered to think what might have hap-
pened if he hit that ball fair.
On defense, throws across the diamond
were all but lobbed over to first base
because the infield is so small in compari-
son to the players’ size.
Because of the dimensions, Little League
at the Majors level — which is the most
glamorous division in all of youth baseball
because that is the division that plays in
the Little League World Series — seems to
be developing into a home run and singles
game. Fences are either too close to keep
balls in the yard, or they’re too close and
take away the extra-base hit.
I saw both examples during Belmont-
Redwood Shores’ 2-0 win over San Ramon
Tuesday. In the bottom of the second
inning, BRS’ Dominic Susa came to the
plate and poked an opposite-field home run
to right, easily clearing the fence 195 feet
Agood pitcher with good speed, a light
bat and Dominic Susa — BRS’ cleanup hit-
ter — and it added up to an improbable
Then ask BRS’ Brad Shimabuku, who
hammered a ball into the right-center field
gap to drive in the second run of the game.
He was held to a single, however, because
he hit the ball so hard, it one-hopped the
fence. The right fielder got to the ball
quickly and got it back into the infield to
keep Shimabuku at first.
Then there is the skill level of these
players. It’s good baseball at this age.
With private coaches and trainers, many
players have developed a high level of
baseball acuity that makes things look
effortless when they’re on the field.
These players are just starting to hit a
major growth spurt in their lives, maybe
it’s time Little League grows as well.
Menlo-Atherton has coaching positions
open in a number of sports. The school is

CHORGES, France — Even when he
expects to lose, Tour de France champion-
in-the-making Chris Froome cannot help
but win. He’s that strong and he’s making it
look easy.
On a day when the British rider was plan-
ning to save some energy for upcoming
mountains, Froome still brushed aside the
field and took his third stage win of this
100th Tour.
Alberto Contador, Froome’s Spanish
rival still trying to make a fight of this one-
sided battle, gave his all in Wednesday’s
Alpine time trial. His face contorted in a
grimace of effort as he sprinted out of the
saddle to the line, while spectators whipped
up a thunderclap of noise by banging their
fists on the barriers.
Froome, having set off behind
Contador, sped in a few moments later. He,
too, rode hard but looked more comfort-
able with his easy-on-the-eye pedaling
style, perched on his saddle, legs pumping
underneath him like pistons in an ocean
liner’s engine room.
Contador shook his head and shrugged his
shoulders when television flashed that
Froome beat his time by 9 seconds. This
was another opportunity lost for Contador
— 4 minutes, 34 seconds back in second
place in the overall standings— to make
victory for Froome in Paris on Sunday at
least feel less inevitable.
“Froome is in impressive shape,” was the
understated assessment of the 2007 and ’09
winner who was stripped of his 2010 victo-
ry for a failed doping test.
The last Tour champion — now ex-cham-
pion — to carry as many stage wins as
Froome to Paris was Lance Armstrong. That
was in 2004, when Armstrong won five
stages and declared he’d be giving “no
gifts” to his rivals. That is all just a bad
memory now. This Tour is the first since the
serial doper’s name was erased last year
from the race’s honor roll, literally crossed
out in the official history book.
Froome swears that won’t happen with
him. He has repeatedly said when asked at
this Tour that he is riding clean — an assur-
ance that only has limited value in the poi-
sonous atmosphere of doubt that is a legacy
of the Armstrong years and the American’s
confession to Oprah Winfrey this January
that he cheated for all seven of his Tour
wins, from 1999-2007.
“The problem today is that we are trauma-
tized by the past,” Stephane Heulot, manag-
er of the French Sojasun team, said in an
interview. “We’ve seen too many stories
like this. We’ve seen too many riders swear-
ing on the heads of their kids, their grand-
mothers, their mothers that they’re com-
pletely clean and then — bam! — 15 years,
10 years, five years later we’re told other
things. Someone’s word no longer means
anything. We can’t rely on that.”
Aunion that represents about 600 profes-
sional riders from seven European nations
supported Froome on Wednesday against
what it called “unjustified allegations of
“It’s not fair to blame someone without
evidence against him,” Gianni Bugno, pres-
ident of the Association of Professional
Riders, said in a statement. “We demand
more respect for Chris and for all the rid-
In four days, as long as he gets through
the Alps, Froome will be able to sip cham-
pagne in the saddle on the final ride to the
Champs-Elysees, unusually staged in the
evening this year. That would make it two
victories in a row for Britain and for Team
Sky, after Bradley Wiggins’ win last year.
With wins in the Pyrenees and on Mont
Ventoux, Froome has shown excellence
going uphill. It would be a big surprise if he
wilted on the three days of Alpine climbs
that start on Thursday with a double ascent
to the ski station of L’Alpe d’Huez, with its
21 hairpins bends to the top. Done twice,
that’s 42 bends packed with spectators to be
negotiated. It promises to be frenzied and
spectacular — a dramatic crescendo for what
already has been a highlight-rich Tour.
But there are questions about how com-
fortable Froome is speeding downhill.

The X Games are going from the
glitz of Los Angeles to deep in the
heart of Texas.
Athletes with skateboards and
motorcycles will be competing in
the Texas capital after ESPN
announced Wednesday that Austin
will be the next North American
host city for the X Games.
“Austin over the last several
years has really become synony-
mous with supporting big
events,” said Scott Guglielmino,
senior vice president, ESPN pro-
gramming and X Games. “The
music scene is fantastic. The
night life is fantastic and definite-
ly a young, active town.”
The home to the University of
Texas also has the new Circuit of
the Americas sports and entertain-
ment complex, which will be the
primary site for X Games Austin.
The 1,500-acre complex opened
in November by hosting the
Formula One U.S. Grand Prix and
held a MotoGP motorcycle race in
Austin was selected over three
other finalists: Chicago, Detroit
and Charlotte, N.C. There were
initially 13 qualified bids for the
Olympic-style selection process,
with Austin picked to host for four
years starting next May 15-18.
“X Games is a great action
sports competition and is an ideal
fit for the city of Austin, which
has a tremendous fitness orienta-
tion, a tremendous action sports
community,” said Steve Sexton,
president of Circuit of the
Sexton said 16-18 X Games ath-
letes live in Austin, and that a
“couple of thousand people”
showed up at the State Capitol to
watch an exhibition when Austin
was announced as one of the four
finalists earlier this year.
X Games is nearing the end of
its first year of global expansion
and transformation, with events
already held in Aspen, Colo.,
France, Brazil, Spain and
The X Games will wrap up an 11-
year run in Los Angeles with this
summer’s event Aug. 1-4.
“L.A. clearly, Southern
California, it’s a special home
when it comes to action sports
and that whole culture, no ques-
tion about it,” Guglielmino said.
“But we felt like it was time to
move the X Games to a new venue,
a new city. We leave Los Angeles
with a lot of great memories, cer-
tainly. ... We leave after quite a
good and prosperous stay, but def-
initely looking forward to getting
to Austin and really growing out
the event.”
Aspen has been the host of the
winter X Games since 2002, but
its contract expires after next
year’s event. Bidding to host win-
ter competition in the United
States just ended, with the next
site likely to be picked in early
There are about 350 fully devel-
oped acres at Circuit of the
Americas, including the 3.4-mile
race track with 20 turns, an expan-
sive outdoor live music space for
14,000 spectators and a 25-story
observation tower.
X Games going deep in heart of Texas to Austin

In recent years, farmers’ markets have
sprung up in cities and towns all across the
country. These new venues have made fresh,
locally grown produce conveniently avail-
able to consumers and have provided small
farmers the means to sell directly to the pub-
lic. The trend has given rise to a new gener-
ation of young farmers working on smaller
farms, growing greater diversity of crops
and planting a succession of seasonal offer-
For those of us with backyard gardens,
there are lessons to be learned from these
farmers and from trips to farmers markets.
On a recent visit to my local farmers’ mar-
ket, I not only became more aware of what is
in season, but I also got new ideas about
what I could grow in my own garden and the
best time of year to plant it.
While most of us don’t have the space to
grow the same variety of produce offered in
farmers’ markets, making note of the mar-
ket’s seasonal offerings, such as broccoli or
spinach, can provide useful information for
our own gardens.
Broccoli and spinach can be found in mar-
kets very early in the season when tempera-
tures are still cool. The lesson here: Don’t
try growing these plants in your own garden
during the heat of summer. The opposite is
true of tomatoes and peppers; they love the
heat so don’t plant them too early in the
Paying attention to local fresh produce in
market stalls can help you sharpen your gar-
dening skills. Subtract several weeks from
the date that certain produce becomes avail-
able in the market, and you will get an idea
of the best time to plant it in your own gar-
den next year.
I have found that most farmers and their
employees at markets will readily offer
growing tips such as when to plant, how far
apart to space plants, and what types of fer-
tilizers to use for individual crops.
One such tip greatly improved my carrot
crop. When I inquired about the beautiful
carrots at one vendor’s stand, I learned that
heavy clay soil like mine inhibits carrots
roots from growing straight down. Lighter,
looser soil allows the plant’s roots to grow
with ease producing longer more uniform
carrots. Adding copious amounts of sand to
the soil of my carrot plot, I was told, would
yield much better carrots. And it did!
Another important tip I picked up from
talking with growers at our farmers’ market
is the practice of succession planting. This
simply means planting seeds or plants at
intervals to stagger the harvest. For
instance, instead of planting a whole pack-
et of lettuce seed at one time, which will
produce a bumper crop of lettuce several
weeks later, I plant part of the packet, wait
about five days, plant more, and wait five
more days and plant the rest.
When it comes time to harvest I am not
inundated with lettuce all at once. This prac-
tice holds true for most fast-growing crops.
For those of you who have ever been the
recipient of doorstop-sized zucchini — or
the giver — will appreciate the concept of
succession planting.
If you want to grow better vegetables in
your own garden, take a trip to your local
farmers’ market. You’ll get fresh fruit, veg-
etables and a little friendly counsel in one

case against Stuart James Forrest. The
trial is now in recess until Wednesday
morning when Forrest’s defense
Forrest, 61, is charged with two
felony counts of child pornography
possession that carry up to three years
in prison and sex offender registra-
tion. He has pleaded not guilty and, in
opening statements Tuesday, defense
attorney Jaime Leanos told jurors his
client purchased and viewed the images
as part of his duties as San Mateo
County’s chief probation officer.
However, Jauren contends Forrest
had a fetish for young boys being
spanked and bound and showed numer-
ous images — although nowhere near
the hundreds recovered — of that spe-
cific type to argue that the possession
was to satisfy a personal taste and was
not varied enough to indicate possible
training or research. The footage was
projected toward jurors and away from
spectators. All included boys. No
images of girls were recovered.
As Jauron played the images, Forrest
watched expressionless although his
folded hands occasionally fidgeted.
Several of the jurors watched with
hands on their chins or partially cov-
ering their mouths.
Jurors also learned that the devices
included 180,000 web searches, a his-
tory that included San Mateo County
time cards, Kaiser Permanente and
Opentable.com peppered in between
sites for “boy links,” “little boy love”
and “naughtycuteboys.com.” Searches
were also made for a film involving
nude boys distributed by Azov Films,
the company whose raid led to Forrest
through customer transaction records.
U.S. postal inspectors, assisted by
the FBI and local law enforcement,
searched Forrest’s San Mateo office and
parents’ home on Dec. 20 and 21
which turned up the images. Forrest
also tried killing himself with a
kitchen knife to the throat on the steps
of a San Mateo church before his
arrest. He entered a psychiatric unit
and retired 10 days later.
On Tuesday, the prosecution called
law enforcement members to explain
that while the law allows child
pornography possession it must be
directly connected to an investigation
or training. Training materials are also
sanitized to block genitals.
After jurors were dismissed for the
day, Jauron and Leanos also debated
the admissibility of an 18-page story
found on Forrest’s Blackberry that
depicted a sexual relationship between
a grown man and a 7-year-old boy.
Leanos contended the molestation
story is irrelevant to the simple pos-
session charges in the case and is
“highly inflammatory” and prejudicial
to the jury. Jauron argued it shows
Forrest’s preferences and confirms that
there is “absolutely nothing legiti-
mate” about his possession of child
pornography. Judge Robert Atak will
rule at a later point.
Forrest is free from custody on
$100,000 bail.

as if there is nothing wrong with this place.
Renters feel tricked, lied to and clearly
unsatisfied. Even the new ones.”
Rents have jumped 15 percent and more
for some tenants since Equity bought the
property last year. All residents are also
now paying an additional $165 or more a
month for utility charges, which Westlake
previously covered.
Many of the tower’s current residents are
80 years old or more and are feeling pressure
to move as they feel new ownership is seek-
ing to rent to younger “techies.”
Officials with Equity, however, said the
building is in need of some major updating
and that most of its tenants prefer to have a
washer and dryer in their unit.
Miller has said he will not let construc-
tion crews into his unit to install the neces-
sary plumbing and venting needed for the
washer/dryer project unless he is offered
On Monday, attorney Sam Ferdows sent a
letter to Equity on behalf of tenant Manije
Windell, who just moved into the tower
June 1 after signing a one-year lease.
The 70-year-old signed the lease without
being informed of extensive and continuing
construction activity, according to the let-
“Equity Residential is put on notice to
cease and desist from entering Ms.
Windell’s apartment in order to perform any
construction, renovation or similar work at
the premises,” Ferdows wrote in the letter.
Ferdows also cites a July 12 Daily Journal
article “New owner, new problems: Elderly
in high-rise apartment complex feeling
pushed out” about how Equity has continued
construction work in some apartments for
weeks longer than projected.
Workers came into Hin Wing Li’s apart-
ment May 22 to install a closet and plumb-
ing for the washer and dryer and did not fin-
ish the project for nearly six weeks, forcing
Li to sleep on his bed in the living room.
The project was complete, coincidentally,
the day after the Daily Journal article was
Units currently rent from $2,300 for a
single bedroom to $4,100 for a three-bed-
room unit at 55 West Fifth.
Miller has even sparred with some in San
Mateo’s building division as to whether
Equity sought and received the proper per-
mits before starting construction.
Miller has asked to see and copy some of
Equity’s plans but has been denied so far for
a variety of reasons, he told the Daily
“We had 81 people in attendance last
night who want to know what is planned
inside their apartment units. It would be
impractical for them and the city to have all
of us come down to the building desk as a
group or individually. Your conference
rooms don’t seem to hold that many people
and you will have [building official]
Stephen [Lau] working overtime,” Miller
wrote to the City Attorney’s Office Monday.
San Mateo Mayor David Lim has reached
out to the California Apartment
Associations to set up a meeting between
the tenants and ownership to try to mediate
some of the concerns. 55 West Fifth is a
member of the CAA.
“Although the City Council has no formal
jurisdiction over the apartment complex, I
nonetheless share the concerns of many of
the residents who live there,” Lim wrote in
an email to a tenant.
Equity spokesman Marty McKenna told
the Daily Journal the company will wait to
address resident concerns after it actually
receives them.
“We will wait to comment when we hear
what they are seeking,” he said.

designer. She created her own one-
woman fashion house for her line, AVB
Designs. She designs and produces a
wide variety of clothing items, includ-
ing swimwear, maternity wear and cos-
Her designs, she said, are meant for
“strong women” of all ages.
“I think strength is sexiness,” she
said, adding that her aesthetic is edgy,
modern, chic and elegant.
Applying to Project Runway for a sec-
ond time with her same vision, Von
Bromssen thought the producers would
think she was crazy.
“I didn’t think it would happen and it
did,” she said.
Designing for judges
On Project Runway, Von Bromssen
competes against 16 other designers.
Celebrity judges include the famous
Victoria’s Secret model Heidi Klum and
designer Zac Posen, whose clothing can
be found at Neiman Marcus and Saks
Fifth Avenue.
Each week, the designers are given
wild challenges — in the past, contest-
ants have had to make garments out of
flowers or things found in the supermar-
ket — and are eliminated by the judges
one by one.
“It was a really cool opportunity to
focus on yourself,” said Von Bromssen,
who said she is constantly critiquing her
own work.
Working long hours and creating
pieces of fashion that require highly
technical skills did not intimidate Von
“I can work with almost any medium,”
she said. “I’m OK under pressure.”
But the challenge for her was finding a
way to make something that pleased the
judges while also staying true to her
own vision.
“You have to know yourself and you
have to know who you’re designing
for,” she said. “Maybe I lost myself a
little bit to learn what the masses want.”
Camp Couture
Now, after the show, Von Bromssen is
back in San Mateo focusing on finding
herself again. She is inspired by the
kids who participate in her “Camp
Couture” sewing workshops at her Palm
Avenue location.
Her first day back with the kids, they
were making an all-denim map of the
United States.
“It’s beautiful,” she said.
The kids learn to embrace themselves,
she said.
“Kids are told what to do all day, and I
think that’s sad when that happens,”
she said, adding that her camps consist
of one day of learning how to sew and
the rest of the week the kids are free to
make what they want. “Here they flour-
ish. It’s like Project Runway without the
judges and the drama.”
Model turned designer
Von Bromssen — who was born in
California and grew up in Stockholm,
Sweden — started in the fashion indus-
try at a very young age. Her first
glimpse into the world of fashion was
not as a designer, but rather from anoth-
er side of the industry. At 13, Von
Bromssen, was 5 feet, 10 inches, which
made her a great subject for the camera.
“I guess I took a decent photo,” she
By age 14, she was a professional
model getting calls from Vogue and Elle
and traveling the world for magazine
shoots and runway shows.
She lived in Italy, Spain and Greece.
The young worldly Von Bromssen
loved learning about other cultures, but
the modeling gigs weren’t for her.
“I didn’t love it, actually,” she said.
“It just wasn’t something I was passion-
ate about. My mom wanted it more.”
Von Bromssen moved to New York to
study at New York University. She stud-
ied business and got a job with Time,
Inc., in San Francisco after she graduat-
ed. But again, there was something
Instead of filling the voids of work
with happy hours, Von Bromssen took
art classes.
She found that she loved getting
messy and creating her own works of
“My nails were dirty with paint like
these cool war scars,” she said.
Then, fate stepped in. Von Bromssen
lost her job after the terrorist attacks of
Sept. 11, 2001. She decided to go back
to school and get her master’s in fine
arts from the Academy of Art University
in San Francisco.
“That was probably the best day of my
life,” she said. “I was thrilled to have an
She has been designing fashion in the
Bay Area for 10 years. She works from
her home and her store.
Living in San Mateo, away from the
constant happenings in New York or
San Francisco, has allowed the designer
to concentrate on her work.
“It’s quiet enough for me to produce,”
she said. “It’s allowed me to focus.”
When Von Bromssen isn’t designing,
she’s running. She has run more than 50
marathons and run two ultra marathons
in the Alps.
She said the discipline of running
helped her get through the intense
Project Runway experience.
“Running has kept me sane through-
out this process,” she said, thinking of
the long hours of working through com-
petitive challenges on the show. “You
have to pace yourself, and breathe.”
Season 12 of Project Runway premiers
tonight on Lifetime at 9 p.m. Von
Bromssen’s Red Square Boutique is
located at 1628 Palm Ave., San Mateo.

papers to run, but have yet to file offi-
cially. Burlingame resident Robert
Schinagl also pulled papers to run for a
seat on the council. He has yet to file an
application for candidacy, said City
Clerk Mary Ellen Kearney.
For Baylock, the time was just right.
“We’ve accomplished many good
things and now that Burlingame is sta-
ble, it seems like a good time to go off
and do something different,” Baylock
said. “I’m leaving for all good reasons.”
Baylock said she plans on spending
more time at her Bible study group in
Foster City, which she’s been part of for
21 years. She also plans on spending
more time working at the Burlingame
Historical Society, seeing her family
more and skiing once she wraps up her
time on the City Council.
She is most proud of the train station
remodel she worked on during her first
year as mayor in 2006.
“It ended up being a beautiful land-
scaped project,” Baylock said. “People
don’t realize how hard it is to get things
Brownrigg, who was elected to the
City Council in 2009, said he pulled
papers Wednesday.
“Cathy has done terrific public serv-
ice; she loves Burlingame and is a great
colleague,” Brownrigg said. “I’m sur-
prised by her decision. She’s been a lot
of fun to work with.”
Brownrigg said he doesn’t have any
other candidates in mind, but said he is
sure there will be a good pool of poten-
tial councilmembers in the running.
“We’re blessed in Burlingame because
we have a lot of thoughtful, civic-mind-
ed people,” Brownrigg said.
Keighran said she was disappointed
by Baylock’s announcement since the
two work together so well.
“I wish she was running,” Keighran
said. “She has been phenomenal. I
highly respect her for her dependability
and ethics. She was always a coun-
cilmember first.”
Charles Voltz, one of the founders of
advocacy group Citizens for a Better
Burlingame, initially met Baylock a
decade ago at the Burlingame Historical
Society. “We go back a long way,” Voltz
said. “She’s been a marvelous advocate
for Burlingame and I’m disappointed to
hear she’s not running again.”
Baylock said she hasn’t heard of any
potential contenders in the coming City
Council election.
“It’s strange because in April or May,
you hear about people throwing their
hats in the ring, but no one has been
coming to the meetings or talking
about it,” she said.

CanCer (June 21-July 22) -- When doing work that
requires an eye for detail, you had better keep your
mind on the task at hand. A lack of attention could
quickly ruin your endeavor.
LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be content with what
you’re doing and with whom you are sharing your
time. Once you start wishing you were elsewhere,
you’ll lose what the moment has to offer.
VirGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It’s marvelous when
we can take others at their word, but unfortunately
several persons might promise you things today that
they have no intention of fulflling.
LiBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Usually, you’re pretty
good at clarifying your objectives, especially if it
involves something that could enhance your know-
how. Today, however, your system might go awry.
sCOrPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you plan to visit
some shops that offer tantalizing merchandise that
you know you can’t afford, it would be best to leave
your credit cards at home. Now’s not the time to be
a spendthrift.
saGiTTariUs (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Any project
or endeavor that doesn’t have your wholehearted
support shouldn’t be pursued today. It would be best
to temporarily shelve such matters until you’re in a
more favorable mood.
CaPriCOrn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If a friend does
something worthy of praise, be sure to compliment
him or her. However, don’t use false fattery or be
insincere just to give this person an ego boost.
aQUariUs (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’re a generous
and giving person, and these are admirable traits.
However, don’t allow an unworthy manipulator to
use fattery on you and abuse your good nature.
PisCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If your objectives
aren’t clearly and realistically defned, you could go
off on an unproductive tangent and end up having
little or nothing to show for your effort.
aries (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t expect to be too
convincing if you try to sell others on some ideas
or concepts that you don’t truly believe in. It takes
sincerity to generate support.
TaUrUs (April 20-May 20) -- If you ask someone for
an opinion on an important matter, make sure it is
a person who will tell you the truth. That’s the only
way you’ll get the advice you need.
GeMini (May 21-June 20) -- Companions will get
miffed at you if they fail to understand why you say
one thing and do another. It is important for you to
clearly defne your motives and actions.

DATE OF POSTING: July 17, 2013
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN On Tuesday, July 23, 2013, at its regular meeting, located at the
San Bruno Senior Center at 1555 Crystal Springs Road, San Bruno, starting at 7:00 p.m., the
City Council will hold a Public Hearing, to consider waiving the second readings and adopting the
ordinances of the City Council of the City of San Bruno, amending the City’s garbage and recy-
cling rates and establishing an Organics program. The following is a summary of the Ordinances.
On May 24, 2013, written notices of the proposed rates were mailed to all property owners along
with information regarding the proposed organics program, the process for protesting the pro-
posed rates, and the date, time, and location of the public hearing on the proposed garbage
rates. At the public hearing held on July 9, 2013, the City Council received public comment and
found that the City did not receive written protests against the rate increase from a majority of the
customers or parcels served by Recology. The City Council then closed the public hearing and
waived the first reading and voted unanimously to introduce the two ordinances, by the following
vote of: Medina, O’Connell, Salazar and Mayor Ruane. Absent with prior notice was: Ibarra.
The first ordinance to be considered will adjust the City’s garbage and recycling rates by 2.61%
effective September 1, 2013 in accordance with the franchise agreement with Recology San Bru-
no. The second ordinance to be considered will initiate an Organics program in San Bruno effec-
tive January 1, 2014, which will allow residents to dispose of food waste in their green yard waste
toter. The implementation of an Organics program requires a rate adjustment of 8.96%, to be
phased in over the first year of the program with a 4.48% adjustment on January 1, 2014, a
2.24% adjustment on July 1, 2014, and a final 2.24% adjustment on January 1, 2015. A full listing
of the proposed rates can be found on the City’s website at: http://www.sanbruno.ca.gov/fi-
Any person may appear and be heard as to whether the proposed rates and charges are discrimi-
natory, excessive, insufficient, or not compliant with State law. A full copy of the ordinances are
available during business hours in the City Clerk's Office, 567 El Camino, San Bruno, Ca 94066
(650) 616-7058.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-
321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
