County has
first death
from the flu
Multiple deaths
reported in Bay
The first San Mateo County flu-
related death of the season was
reported Thursday, according to
health officials.
A woman in her 40s died after
contracting the flu and there have
been six other flu-related intensive
care hospitalizations in the coun-
t y, San Mateo County health offi-
cials said.
“While the deceased did have
some underlying medical condi-
tions, it’s important to understand
that people without underlying
medical problems can still have a
severe case of influenza that can
lead to hospitalization and possi-
bly death,” said Robyn Thaw,
spokeswoman for the San Mateo
County Health System.
Health officials urge the public
that it’s not too late to get vacci-
nated in defense of this year’s flu
The H1N1 influenza strain,
known as “swine flu” when it first
emerged in 2009, appears to be the
main strain afflicting people this
flu season, according to San Mateo
County health officials.
There have been nine confirmed
flu-related deaths throughout the
Bay Area in recent weeks.
On Thursday, Santa Clara County
health officials announced a sec-
ond flu-related death and San
Francisco health officials
announced a man died at the end of
December. Two recent deaths in
Marin County have been linked to
the flu and another two in Santa
Cruz County are suspected of being
flu-related, public health officials
said Wednesday.
A 63-year-old man with signifi-
cant chronic medical conditions
died on Dec. 27, and a previously
healthy 48-year-old woman died of
an influenza-related complication
on Jan. 6, Marin County Public
Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis said.
Both were hospitalized in inten-
sive care, and neither had received
a flu vaccine, Willis said.
“We are still several weeks away
from the peak of flu season,” Dr.
Scott Morrow, health officer for
San Mateo County, said in a press
release. “The fact that we are see-
ing an increase in flu activity, flu-
related hospitalizations and deaths
Jerry Brown gestures at a graph detailing the state’s long-term liabilities while unveiling his proposed 2014-15
state budget in Sacramento.
By Juliet Williams
SACRAMENTO — Arobust eco-
nomic recovery and surging rev-
enue propelled by voter-approved
tax increases have sent
California’s gen-
eral fund spending
to a record high,
marking a dramat-
ic turn-around
from the state’s
days as the
nation’s poster
child of fiscal dysfunction.
Yet Gov. Jerry Brown, in releas-
ing his budget proposal Thursday,
pledged to take a somber approach
in spending the windfall. He said
California must begin paying
down what he has called its mas-
sive “wall of debt,” a stew of
Record high budget
By Angela Swartz
Local school officials are some-
what happy Gov. Jerry Brown’s
budget proposal calls for an
increase in education funding, but
are still waiting for the final ver-
sion and believe there could be
more done for public schools.
“I’m thrilled with the additional
funding to education,” said Carrie
Du Bois, trustee for the Sequoia
Union High School District. “It’s
much needed. California still has a
long way to go for funding, but
I’m thrilled the governor under-
stands the importance of public

highof $9.5 billion inthe 2011-12 fiscal year.

schools is expected to decline by 7,000 students in

percent for in-homesupportiveservices;4.4percent
for development services; 2.4 percent for children’s
services; and1.4 percent for state hospitals.
The budget includes repaying $351 million
borrowed from the state’s transportation fund for
road maintenance. Transportation industry groups
are pushing a proposed ballot initiative to require
repayment of the money or establish a new tax
stream to pay for road improvements. Brown’s
budget callsfor therepayment tobeallocatedalong

Such a proposal already is scheduled to go before

Homes planned in open space
Athird-generation Hillsborough
resident was seeking to build 25
homes on his 48-acre estate near
Crystal Springs Reservoir, raising
concerns about the wildlife and open
space Peninsula residents have long
taken for granted, it was reported
the week of Jan. 10, 2009.
Christian de Guigne
IV submitted a pro-
posal to the town of
Hillsborough Dec.
30, 2008 and planned
a public meeting to share the
specifics of the plan. The proper-
ty is nestled between Crystal Springs
Road and Parrott Drive and is bordered
by the city of San Mateo to the east.
It is considered by some as the last
great family estate on the
“There are still some in Woodside.
If you’re talking about anything
close to San Mateo, it probably is the
last,” said Mitch Postel, executive
director of the San Mateo Historical

Unmarked buckets cause scare
The contents of three unmarked
buckets found near Interstate 380 in
San Bruno the week of Jan. 10, 2009,
were determined to be safe, emergency
officials said.
The first bucket, an
orange container resem-
bling a paint bucket, was
reported around 1:15 p.m.
on Friday of that week on
Seventh Street under the
Interstate 380 overpass in San Bruno.
San Bruno police and fire personnel,
and a hazardous materials crew
responded to the incident.
Motor oil was determined to be the
contents of the 5-gallon bucket. Two
other buckets were then found nearby,
one of which contained paint and
another that contained water sealer.
Gunmen raid house
Three men armed with guns robbed
two people while they were home in
San Mateo the week of Jan. 10, 2009.
San Mateo police were called to a
house in the 1700 block of Dewey
Street on reports of a home invasion
robbery at approximately 4:30 p.m.
on Friday of that week. At least two
people were in the house when three
men armed with a shotgun and hand-
gun entered the house, police said.
Wall Street slides
The first full week of 2009 didn’t
bring Wall Street any huge shocks,
but it didn’t bring much for investors
be happy about, either.
Ajump in unemployment
sent stocks sharply lower the
week of Jan. 10, 2009, as
investors feared that
Americans won’t soon deviate
from their tightened budgets. The
Dow Jones industrial average fell 143
points to end the week down nearly 5
percent, its worst week since
The Labor Department’s much-
anticipated report showed employers
cut 524,000 jobs in December, a
smaller decline than the loss of
550,000 jobs economists forecast.
But the unemployment rate jumped to
a 16-year high of 7.2 percent — more
than the 7 percent economists pre-
dicted — from 6.8 percent in

plea to felony human trafficking until after
the court appoints an attorney and returns
for further arraignment Jan. 22. Meanwhile,
Maria Carolina Jiminez and Sate Stallone
Jones, both 25 and of San Francisco, have
already pleaded not guilty and are facing
jury trials.
All three suspects are accused of prostitut-

girl, at the La Quinta Inn in South San
Francisco last February. Aman later identi-
fied as Jones reportedly dropped off two
women one night and two women the next
between Feb. 15 and Feb. 16. The women
reportedly told police the couple gave them
illegal drugs to keep them working all night

the man returned with a woman, identified as
Jiminez, to collect the four others, they
were arrested. Police credit a quick-thinking
clerk who’d undergone training about recog-
nizing human trafficking.
Athird suspect, now identified as Jordan,
escaped and remained at large until his arrest

All three face decades in prison under a
new human trafficking sentencing law

Jordan remains in custody on $1 million

Jiminez is free on the same bail amount.
Claim filed for girl
run over after plane crash
The parents of a teenage girl who was run
over and killed by two emergency vehicles
after an Asiana Airlines crash have filed a
claim against the city of San Francisco, say-
ing rescuers were reckless and poorly trained.
In legal forms filed this week in San
Francisco, attorneys for the parents of 16-
year-old Ye Meng Yuan say firefighters who
first saw the girl after the July 6 crash should
have examined her and moved her somewhere
safe. Firefighters told investigators they
assumed the girl was dead and hurried on
toward the damaged aircraft.
An autopsy revealed Yuan was alive before
the vehicles hit her.
In all, 304 of the 307 people aboard the
plane survived after the airliner slammed into
a seawall at the end of a runway during final
approach for landing.
The impact ripped off the back of the
plane, tossed out three flight attendants and
their seats, and scattered pieces of the jet
across the runway as it spun and skidded to a

Ateen carjacking suspect accused of kid-
napping a car seller with a fake gun and driv-
ing the bound man around Daly City while
demanding his pink slip was immediately
sentenced to 20 years in prison after plead-
ing no contest to multiple felonies.
Jeremy Jenkins, 21, has credit of roughly
two years against his two-decade term on 11
charges including carjacking, robbery,
felony threats, kidnapping, assault, false
imprisonment and attempted felony impris-
Prosecutors say Jenkins carjacked the sell-
er of a Mustang after responding to the man’s
Craigslist ad April 23, 2012. After returning
to the Daly City BART station from the test
drive, Jenkins allegedly pulled a replica
handgun and ordered the 26-year-old man to
handcuff himself. Jenkins pulled a pillow-
case over the man’s head and placed him in
the back seat and demanded the pink slip,
according to the District Attorney’s Office.
When the man said the pink slip was at
home, Jenkins allegedly drove around for
20 minutes before pulling into a garage and
having the man call his mother. The
woman, sensing something was amiss when
asked to bring the pink slip to the BART
station, called 911. The police waited at the
BART parking lot and, when Jenkins
arrived, detained him at gunpoint. After his
arrest, Jenkins told authorities he made “a
stupid mistake,” according to prosecutors.
After his arrest, Jenkins’ defense ques-
tioned his competency but two of three
court-appointed doctors found him able to
aid in his own defense.

Brown said he would meet
Thursday with his recently formed
drought task force to determine if
an emergency declaration is nec-
essary as California faces a serious
water shortage.
He said he would “do everything
that is humanly possible” to make
sure the state’s water reserves are
used efficiently but noted that even
a formal drought declaration has
its limits.
“Governors can’t make it rain,”
he told reporters during a briefing
on his state budget proposal.
Reservoirs in the state have
dipped to historic lows after one
of the driest calendar years on
record. The first Sierra snow sur-
vey of the year last week recorded
just 20 percent of average water
content for this time of year.
State water managers have said
they expect to deliver just 5 per-
cent of the water sought by agen-
cies that supply more than 25 mil-
lion Californians and nearly a mil-
lion acres of irrigated farmland.
Several communities already
have imposed mandatory water
reductions. This week, Mendocino
County became the first to request
state drought assistance, citing an
imminent threat of disaster.
Farmers also are taking steps to

LOS ANGELES — Oil and gas
companies that are fracking off
the Southern California coast
must report chemicals discharged
into the ocean under a new rule
released Thursday by federal envi-
ronmental regulators. The U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency
published the requirement in the
Federal Register, and it will
become effective March 1.
The move comes after a series of
stories by the Associated Press
last year revealed at least a dozen
offshore frack jobs in the Santa
Barbara Channel, and more than
200 in nearshore waters overseen
by the state of California.
Hydraulic fracturing, which
involves pumping huge amounts
of sand, water and chemicals deep
underground to release oil, was
conducted with no separate envi-
ronmental analysis of the frack-
ing chemicals on the sea surround-
ings, and little or no oversight.

INDIANAPOLIS — Record-keeping snags
could complicate the start of insurance cov-
erage this month as people begin using
policies they purchased under President
Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.
Insurance companies are still trying to
sort out cases of so-called health insurance
orphans, customers for whom the govern-
ment has a record that they enrolled, but the
insurer does not.
Government officials say the problem is
real but under control, with orphan records
being among the roughly 13,000 problem
cases they are trying to resolve with insur-
ers. But insurance companies are worried the
process will grow more cumbersome as they
deal with the flood of new customers who
signed up in December as enrollment dead-
lines neared.
More than 1 million people have signed
up through the federal insurance market that
serves 36 states. Officials contend the error
rate for new signups is close to zero.
Insurers, however, are less enthusiastic
about the pace of the fixes. The companies
also are seeing cases in which the govern-
ment has assigned the same identification
number to more than one person, as well as
so-called “ghost” files in which the insurer
has an enrollment record but the govern-
ment does not.
But orphaned files — when the insurer has
no record of enrollment — are particularly
concerning because the companies have no
automated way to identify the presumed pol-
icyholder. They say they have to manually
compare the lists of enrollees the govern-
ment sends them with their own records
because the government never built an auto-
mated system that would do the work much
“It’s an ongoing concern,” said Robert
Zirkelbach, a spokesman for the industry
trade group America’s Health Insurance
Plans. “Health plans can’t process enroll-
ments they haven’t received from the
Julie Bataille, communications director
for the federal health care rollout, disputes
the industry’s view.
“We have fixed the issues that we knew
were a problem, and we are now seeing near-
ly zero errors in the work moving forward,”
she said.
Afederal “reconciliation” team, including
technicians, deals directly with more than
300 insurers to resolve signup problems,
she said, while the government’s call center
has caseworkers to help consumers directly.
Insurers use the term “orphan” for the
problematic files because they are referring
to customers who have yet to find a home
with the carrier they selected. The files have
cropped up since enrollment began last fall
through HealthCare.gov. The site was down
an estimated 60 percent of the time in
Since then, the front-end interaction
between customers and the website has
largely been fixed.
But insurers worry that the back-end prob-
lems will grow more acute as they process
the wave of customers who signed up at the
end of 2013. More than 2 million people
had enrolled by the end of the year, either
through HealthCare.gov or state-run web-
Aetna spokeswoman Susan Millerick said
orphaned files were “manageable over the
short term.”

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama
is still grappling with key decisions on the
future of the National Security Agency’s
phone collection program and the makeup of
the secret court that approved the surveil-
lance, lawmakers said Thursday following a
90-minute meeting at the White House.
Obama is expected to back tighter restric-
tions on foreign leader spying and also is
considering a presidential commission’s
recommendation to strip the NSAof its abil-
ity to store telephone records from millions
of Americans. The president could announce
his final decisions as early as next week.
“The president and his administration are
wrestling with the issues,” Sen. Ron Wyden,
an Oregon Democrat and privacy advocate,
said after the meeting. “It’s fair to say that
the next few weeks are going to be crunch
time in terms of judgments being made in
both the administration and the Congress.”
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said the meet-
ing focused in particular on the telephone
data program and the Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Court.
The president also met this week with his
top intelligence advisers, many of whom
oppose changes to the NSAprograms, and a
review group appointed by Congress that is
working on a report focused on the surveil-
lance systems. Privacy advocates met with
senior White House staff Thursday after-
noon, and technology companies have been
invited to a meeting on Friday.
The president’s decisions will test how far
he is willing to go in scaling back the NSA’s
broad surveillance powers. A presidential
commission handed him more than 40 rec-
ommendations, many of which were more
sweeping than expected. However, Obama is
not obligated to accept any of the panel’s
On Thursday, FBI Director James Comey
told reporters he disagrees with a recommen-
dation that would require
the Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Court to
approve the bureau’s use
of national security let-
ters. The letters are legal
demands for information
as part of an ongoing
investigation, such as
demanding the phone
records of a suspected ter-
rorist inside the U.S.
Opponents of involving the court in that
process argue that it would make it more dif-
ficult for the FBI to conduct a national secu-
rity investigation than to conduct a bank
fraud case.
While Obama’s upcoming decision is
highly-anticipated, the White House indicat-
ed it may not be his final word on the mat-
ters. Obama spokesman Jay Carney said that
while the president is likely to want some
changes implemented right away, “there may
be some that would require further review. ”
Congress will likely have to approve
some of Obama’s reforms, particularly if he
makes changes to the phone collection pro-
The presidential review group recommend-
ed not only moving storage of phone records
back to the phone companies or a third
party, but also mandating that the NSA
obtain separate court approval for each
record search. There would be exceptions in
the case of national security emergencies.
It’s unclear whether Obama will ultimately
back the proposal or how quickly it could be
carried out if he does.
People familiar with the White House
review say Obama is expected to announce
steps to rein in spying on friendly foreign
leaders. That includes increased oversight of
the National Intelligence Priorities
Framework, a classified document that ranks
U.S. intelligence-gathering priorities and is
used to make decisions on scrutiny of for-
eign leaders.

WASHINGTON — Legislation to res-
urrect long-term jobless legislation
stalled in the Senate on Thursday, trig-
gering recriminations from both sides
of the political aisle despite earlier
expressions of optimism that benefit s
might soon be restored for more than 1
million victims of the recession.
Gridlock asserted itself after majority
Democrats offered to pay for a 10-
month extension of a scaled-back pro-
gram of benefits — then refused to per-
mit Republicans even to seek any
Instead, Majority Leader Harry Reid,
D-Nev., accused Republicans of “con-
tinually denigrating our economy, our
president and frankly, I believe, our
country. ”
But Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana, one
of a half-dozen Republicans who
helped advance the bill over an initial
hurdle earlier in the week, said he had-
n’t been consulted on any compromise.
Echoing complaints by other mem-
bers of his party, he
said that under Reid’s
leadership he has
been relegated to the
sidelines. Indiana
voters “didn’t send
me here to be told
just to sit down and
forget it,” he said.
At issue was a
struggle over the
possible resurrec-
tion of a program that expired on Dec.
28, immediately cutting off benefits of
roughly $256 weekly for more than 1.3
million hurt by the recession.
The measure is the first to come
before the Senate in the election year,
and since Monday has become ground
zero of a competition between the
political parties to appeal to hard-hit
victims of the longest recession in
more than a half-century.
While unemployment has receded in
recent months, long-term jobless is
high by historical standards.
Despite the squabbling, lawmakers
in both parties said the effort to find a
compromise would continue.
“We’re still trying to work through
this,” said Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I.,
whose state has 9 percent unemploy-
At midday Thursday, Reid had
expressed optimism about the chances
for compromise, and Democratic offi-
cials said talks with Republicans were
focused on a scaled-back program that
is fully paid for and would provide up
to 31 weeks of benefits for the long-
term unemployed.
The officials said the proposal would
run through the late fall, and the price
tag — approximately $18 billion —
would be offset through cuts elsewhere
in the budget so deficits would not
Reid told reporters he was “cautious-
ly optimistic” about a compromise
emerging later in the day, and said he
had held meetings with fellow
Nevadan Dean Heller, a Republican,
but provided no details.
But midafternoon, when Reid for-
mally outlined the proposal, there was
no evident Republican support for it,
and each side accused the other of an
unwillingness to compromise.

TRENTON, N.J. — Republican Gov.
Chris Christie fired one of his top aides
on Thursday and apologized repeatedly
for his staff’s “stupid” behavior, insist-
ing during a nearly two-hour news con-
ference that he had no idea anyone
around him had engineered traffic jams
as part of a political vendetta against a
Democratic mayor.
“I am embarrassed and humiliated by
the conduct of some of the people on my
team,” Christie said as he addressed the
widening scandal, which could cast a
shadow over his expected run for the
White House in 2016.
The famously blunt governor fielded
dozens of questions from reporters with
uncharacteristic patience and at times a
sorrowful tone.
Christie, who had previously assured
the public that his staff had nothing to
do with the September lane closings
that caused major backups at the George
Washington Bridge, said he fired Deputy
Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly
“because she lied to
me” when he
demanded weeks ago
that anyone who
knew anything
about the episode
come forward.
The gridlock in
Fort Lee delayed
emergency vehicles,
school buses and
countless com-
muters for four days.
Kelly was the latest casualty in the
scandal. Two other top Christie
appointees have resigned in the past few
The investigation broke wide open on
Wednesday, with the release of emails
and text messages that suggested Kelly
arranged the traffic jams to punish Fort
Lee’s mayor for not endorsing Christie
for re-election.
In other developments:
• The chief federal prosecutor in New
Jersey, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman,
said he is “reviewing the matter to deter-
mine whether a federal law was implicat-
ed.” The Legislature also is investigat-
ing. Using public resources for political
ends can be a crime. Democratic
Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a
former prosecutor and mayor, said there
was “no doubt” a crime was committed.
• David Wildstein, a Christie
appointee who resigned from the Port
Authority of New York and New Jersey
after being implicated in the scandal,
was found in contempt by a legislative
committee on Thursday after he invoked
his Fifth Amendment right against self-
incrimination and refused to answer
questions. The Port Authority operates
the bridge and other area bridges and
transit hubs.
• Christie traveled to Fort Lee later in
the day and apologized in person to
Mayor Mark Sokolich. Christie said
they had a “productive meeting,” and
Sokolich told The Record newspaper the
governor had taken “a big step” toward
regaining the trust of Fort Lee’s resi-

Nuclear launch officers tied to narcotics probe
F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. — Hoping to
boost sagging morale, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel
made a rare visit Thursday to an Air
Force nuclear missile base and the men
and women who operate and safeguard
the nation’s Minuteman 3 missiles. But
his attempt to cheer the troops was tem-
pered by news that launch officers at
another base had been implicated in an
illegal-narcotics investigation.
Two officers at Malmstrom Air Force
Base in Montana are being investigated
for allegations of drug possession, said
a service spokesman in Washington, Lt. Col. Brett
Ashworth. Both of those being investigated are ICBM
launch officers with responsibility for operating inter-
continental ballistic missiles.
The launch officers’ access to classified information has
been suspended, and they have been prohibited from serv-
ing on missile launch control duty while the Air Force is
investigating, another defense official said. That official
provided no further details and spoke only on condition of
anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the
matter publicly by name.

BAGHDAD — Iraq’s government is
holding off on waging an all-out
offensive to retake two key cities from
al-Qaida because of fears that civilian
casualties could incite Sunni anger and
push moderate tribal leaders to side
with the extremists, analysts and mil-
itary officials said Thursday.
More violence flared in Baghdad,
where a suicide bomber killed 21 peo-
ple at an army recruiting center in a
clear effort to demoralize the military.
Al-Qaida-linked fighters overran
parts of the cities of Fallujah and
Ramadi in Sunni-dominated Anbar
province last week, seizing control of
police stations and military posts,
freeing prisoners and setting up their
own checkpoints.
The United States, whose troops
fought bloody battles in the cities,
has ruled out sending its troops back
in, but has been delivering missiles to
bolster Iraqi forces. It is expediting
shipments of more American-made
missiles and 10 surveillance drones,
but those may not arrive for weeks.

withdrew in 2011. Both countries tried

BEIRUT — Two weeks ahead of an
international peace conference on Syria,
the country’s main Western-backed
opposition group stands on the brink of
collapse, dragged down by outside pres-
sures, infighting and deep disagreements
over the basic question of whether to
talk to President Bashar Assad.
The crisis in the Syrian National
Coalition raises further doubts about
the so-called Geneva conference,
which is set to open Jan. 22 in
Montreux, Switzerland. The prospects
for a successful outcome at the talks
appear bleak at best: Assad has said he
will not hand over power, and the
opposition — if it decides to attend —
is in no position to force concessions
from him.
The U.S. and Russia, which support
opposing sides in the conflict that has
killed more than 120,000 people,
have been trying for months to bring
the Syrian government and its oppo-
nents to the table for negotiations
aimed at ending the war. But with the
fighting deadlocked, neither the gov-
ernment nor the rebels showed any
interest in compromise, forcing the
meeting to be repeatedly postponed.

Have you ever been
entrusted to make
final arrangements
for a funeral?
Those of you
who’ve had this
experience know
that important decisions are required and
must be made in a timely manner. The next
of kin is many times required to search for
information about the deceased which may
not be easily accessible, and must answer
questions without the time to think things
out. Even though your Funeral Director is
trained to guide you every step of the way, it
is still best for you to be prepared with the
proper information if the need should arise.
Ask your Funeral Director what info is
needed before you meet with him/her.
Making funeral arrangements can be very
simple, or can become difficult at times if
you are not prepared. A good Funeral
Director is experienced in leading you with
the necessary requirements, and will offer
details that you may not have thought about
or previously considered as an option.
Allowing him/her to guide you will make
the arrangements go by quickly and easily.
A number of items should be considered
in preparation for the future:
1. Talk to your loved ones about the
inevitable. Give them an indication on what
your wishes are regarding the type of funeral
you want, burial or cremation, etc., and ask
them their feelings about plans for their own
funeral. This is only conversation, but it is
an important topic which will help break the
ice and prevent any type of confusion when
the time comes.
2. Talk to your Funeral Director. Write
down a list of questions and make a phone
call to your Funeral Director asking how to
be prepared. He/she will gladly provide
detailed information and can mail this
information to you for your reference.
Asking questions doesn’t cost anything and
will help you with being organized.
3. Make an appointment and Pre-plan a
Funeral. Many more people are following
through with this step by making Pre-Need
Arrangements. Completing arrangements
ahead of time makes this process more
relaxed, and putting these details behind you
will take a weight off your shoulders. Your
wishes will be finalized and kept on file at
the Mortuary. Your Funeral Director will
even help you set aside funding now as to
cover costs at the time of death. Families
who meet with us at the CHAPEL OF THE
HIGHLANDS are grateful for the chance to
make Pre-Need Arrangements. With their
final details in place it helps to make matters
more calming for surviving loved-ones.
4. Enjoy Life. There are those who dwell
on situations that can’t be controlled.
Taking time to stop and look around at
beauty in the world and appreciate good
things can be therapeutic. If you need to use
a negative statement, try re-wording it into a
positive. Change “I had a lousy day today”
into “Today was demanding, but it made me
appreciate my better days.” As the song
goes: “Accentuate the positive; Eliminate
the negative; Latch on to the affirmative.”
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)

Wanted man causes high school
lockdown, pursuit and carjacking
Aman driving a stolen car out of Oakland
Thursday morning in Half Moon Bay caused
a foot pursuit into a cemetery, a high school
lockdown, a mobile home park carjacking
and more police activity in San Mateo where
the carjacked woman was dropped off.
The string of bizarre events began at
about 7 a.m. when someone called police to
report a magenta Dodge or Camaro driving
erratically west on State Route 92 approach-
ing Half Moon Bay city limits. Sheriff’s
deputies saw the vehicle, a 2006 Dodge
Charger reported stolen out of Oakland the
night before, approaching the Shell gas sta-
tion at the Main Street intersection of State
Route 92. The sole occupant got out of the
car, saw the deputy, and ran into the ceme-
tery on the north side of State Route 92,
according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s
The deputy, who is a K9 handler, had his
dog track the man into the area of the ceme-
tery and adjacent Hilltop Mobile Home Park
but lost sight of him due to darkness. The
man is described as Hispanic, in his early
20s, approximately 6 feet, thin, with dark
hair and dark clothing, according to police.
At that point, police alerted Half Moon
Bay High School to lock down the campus
as a precaution, according to police.
At approximately 7:41 a.m., San Mateo
police reported they were contacted by a
woman who was carjacked in the mobile
home park and forced to drive to San Mateo.
The man got out of the woman’s car on the
600 block of Concar Drive and ran away.
Police did not find the man. The woman was
not physically injured, according to police.
Any person who may have witnessed this
crime or has information regarding the iden-
tity of the suspect is asked to contact
Detective Hector Acosta at (650) 363-

Letters to the editor
ure, much is to be applauded in
Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget
announcement. Paying down the
state’s “wall of debt” and ensuring money
is set aside in a rainy-day fund are responsi-
ble and mature proposals when it comes to
the massive annual project that is the
California budget process.
However, the fact of the matter is that if
he did not make those pronouncements,
this day would be marked by long threads
of statements expressing extreme worry
about his irresponsibility.
And that, is a positive step. The fact that
the California state government is finally
waking up to the reality of budget cycles,
debt obligations and the need for a true
rainy-day fund to ease the dips and rises in
the state’s financial system is a reason to
be hopeful.
Now, it’s up to the Democratically con-
trolled Legislature to see if they can keep
their hands off the loot. The state’s budget
surplus is estimated to be around $3.2 bil-
lion by the end of the fiscal year in July.
Assembly Speaker John Perez has already
pronounced his intention to create a rainy-
day fund on one hand while, on the other,
expressing an interest in a raft of ideas that
take money such as preventing tuition
increases for higher education, fighting
poverty and the phase-in of preschool pro-
grams including universal transitional
That last item was noticeably absent in
Brown’s budget proposal yesterday. But the
idea has a head full of steam with Senate
President Darryl Steinberg announcing his
plans to get such a system going this year.
Universal preschool has its detractors,
notably those who wish the government to
stay out of such programs, but also has
many supporters who point to benefit s
such as retained learning, fewer issues with
learning disabilities and easier transitions
to kindergarten. Parents of young children
also benefit in that the cost of independent
preschools is sometimes prohibitive.
Brown has long been known to be frugal
and this budget proposal of his reflects
that. He has his own pet projects to fund,
particularly high-speed rail and the Delta
Tunnel project, so he can’t promise the
world. But legislators will surely push for
inclusion of their own pet projects, and
universal transitional preschool is chief
among them.
With a big chunk of money allocated to a
rainy-day fund and to paying down the
state’s debt, there may be some wiggle
room for other programs — but the gover-
nor was wise not to suggest them. That
way, only the most responsible and effec-
tive ideas will have a chance to squeeze in
and other ideas with less merit will not.
Paying down the debt
Gov. Brown is pledging to paying down
the debt — a whopping $11 billion in the
next fiscal year! Putting it another way,
against an estimated debt of $355 billion,
he is going to pay back some of it by bor-
rowing from other government programs,
tallying up to a whopping 3 percent. That
is even less than the interest on the out-
standing debt, even if you are able to float
a bunch of bonds, I.O.U.’s and forget-me-
not’s (AKAadditional taxes generated
from propositions and proposals voted in
by our mathematically challenged politi-
cians and government finance teams).
Remember, we really do not have that
$11 billion in the first place. It was a
result of a temporary increase in taxes
approved by California residents, 50 per-
cent of whom do not pay taxes to start off
with, but nevertheless saddled the rest of
us with some more debt. It is your and my
money that was borrowed by the Jerry
Brown team just because they could. That
$355 billion debt, which I am sure hides
and forgets to report liabilities every-
where in the government system, won’t be
paid back. And, that temporary tax
increase won’t disappear either. I have
been told Nevada and Texas are really
spectacular at this time of the year.

Response to ‘Future’
I applaud Don Havis for raising the issue
of over-population as the ultimate cause
of many of the problems we face now and
into the future (letter to the editor,
“Future,” in the Jan. 7 edition of the Daily
Journal). I suggest that the income tax
deductions for dependents of over two
children be eliminated as well, which
would also help pay for some school
expenses. Alot of younger couples I know
are already acting responsibly and limit-
ing their reproduction to two children.
Now, if we could only get the Catholic
Church to be responsible as well and get
over their anti-contraceptive dogma, we
might have a chance to begin to solve the
population problem.

Weather is cyclical
These “weather change” items are too
much.The environment folks are in it for
one thing only and that is money! The
money comes from donations, grants and
inheritances when the gullible ones pass
on. The weather is cyclic and changes
every 10, 15, 20 years. In my 85 years,
I’ve seen many changes.The earth orbit-
ing the sun cannot maintain the same
course every orbit so a few thousand miles
either way affects the weather a little. Man
cannot affect the weather.
In 1979, the big thing was the coming
“ice age.” That didn’t happen, so after the
clamor settled down and the sheep forgot
the lies, the next hoax was “global warm-
ing.” The ice caps were melting and the
oceans were to rise 21 feet. After Al Gore
was preaching this garbage and made mil-
lions doing it, that didn’t happen, so back
to the drawing board. They then came up
with “climate change.”
Now they got it covered both ways.
Everyone in the world, every man, woman
and child can fit in Texas on their own
one-thousand-square-foot plot. That
makes the rest of the world empty. The
pollution then comes from the birds, fish
and the ground animals. Good luck, sheep.
The sad part of all this is the money wast-
ed that could be used for the necessary ills
of our society.

Sparing the air?
Regarding the recent large fires at
Simms metals and Thursday’s fire at the
roofing supply/animal feed warehouse in
San Jose, it sure is a good thing all the
households in the Bay Area sacrificed the
warmth, ambiance and family tradition of
their holiday fires to spare the air.
I’d be willing to wager that the pollu-
tion from the Simms fire doubled any-
thing the homeowners could accomplish,
let alone the five alarms in San Jose.
By the way, does the owner of Simms
have to pay the $250 fine and take a
smoke awareness class that the smoke
patrol imposes on John Q. Public?

Pay off teacher
pension debt
Sacramento Bee
enate Democrats announced legis-
lation on Tuesday to expand
kindergarten to help 4-year-old
children get off to a strong start in
school, at a cost of $198 million a year.
It’s a great idea.
So is this: Paying the debt Californians
incurred by promising to provide public
school teachers with secure pensions.
The California State Teachers’
Retirement System estimates that the cost
to fully fund the teachers’ pension debt
will be almost $4.5 billion in the coming
year, $4.6 billion the year after that, and
more in each subsequent year.
CalSTRS calculates that 30 years from
now — and many veteran teachers who
retire now will live another 30 years —
the annual cost of fully funding the sys-
tem will be $13.9 billion.
The Bee’s editorial board last wrote
about this issue in December 2012. The
total unfunded liability stood at $65 bil-
lion then. Now, the amount is $71 bil-
lion. Like a mortgage, taxpayers in the
form of the state, school districts and
teachers will need to pay $235 billion
during the next 30 years to make good on
that $71 billion liability.
The cost is real. The state and school
districts — primarily using state funds —
have a moral and contractual obligation
to pay it.
To the benefit of no one, policymakers
have been shortchanging teachers and
taxpayers by paying less than 50 percent
of the amount that would fully fund pen-
sions in each of the last three years.
Indeed, the state has shortchanged the
system by paying less than 100 percent
of its obligation in each fiscal year since
At some point, however, that has to
Gov. Jerry Brown has been the adult in
the room on many issues; he should
assert his leadership on this issue, too.
To their credit, Speaker John A. Pirez
and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell
Steinberg say they recognize the need to
make good on teacher pension obliga-
tions. But to make good on their promis-
es, they and other legislators may need to
forgo accolades that surely would accom-
pany creation of new and innovative pro-
Individually, teacher pensions are hard-
ly exorbitant. The average monthly check
is less than $3,700 per year. For many
teachers, that’s their only retirement pay.
California teachers don’t pay into Social
Security and don’t collect it when they
Public school teachers contribute 8 per-
cent of their pay to their pensions. They
likely will end up paying a greater share
for their retirement; the amount will be
subject to bargaining. Newly hired teach-
ers also will need to pay a larger share.
No bread-and-butter issue is more basic
than pensions.
The California Teachers Association,
probably the most influential public
employee union in the state, should use
its clout to persuade lawmakers to focus
on the unfunded pension liability, rather
than waste its political capital on side
issues, such as defending job protections
for criminals masquerading as teachers.
The amount, $4.5 billion, is daunting,
as is $71 billion and $235 billion. But
the sums aren’t shrinking. Promises were
made. Policymakers need to figure out
ways to make good on those promises.

NEWYORK — Investors got a sharp
reminder Thursday that the economy
still has some weak spots.
Bed Bath & Beyond and Family Dollar
plunged after cutting their earnings
forecasts following a disappointing
holiday season. Other retail stocks also
fell sharply even as the broader stock
market ended little changed.
The reports of weak sales disappoint-
ed investors, who had seen signs for
several weeks that the U.S. economy
was improving and that shoppers were
returning to the malls.
“The consumers are supposed to be
the fuel of this economy, and it doesn’t
appear to be happening,” said Ian
Winer, director of trading for Wedbush
Securities. “If they’re not spending
money at the retailers, what’s going
The Dow Jones industrial average fell
17.98 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at
16,444.76. The Standard & Poor’s 500
index added 0.64 points, or less than
0.1 percent, to 1,838.13 and the Nasdaq
composite lost 9.42 points, or 0.2 per-
cent, to 4,156.19.
The worst performer in the S&P 500
index was Bed Bath & Beyond, which
plunged $9.93, or 13 percent, to
$69.75. Family Dollar fell $1.37, or 2
percent, to $64.97.
LBrands, which owns Bath and Body
Works and Victoria’s Secret, reported
that its sales rose less than analysts had
expected. The company also cut its full-
year outlook. L Brands fell $2.44, or 4
percent, to $57.75.
Even the bright spots in the retail
industry had caveats. Department store
giant Macy’s jumped $3.96, or 8 per-
cent, to $55.80 after the company fore-
cast a 2014 profit that was above Wall
Street’s forecasts. At the same time,
Macy’s said it would eliminate 2,500
jobs as part of a reorganization that
aims to save $100 million a year.
The disappointing news from retailers
was more than enough to offset another
positive report on the U.S. economy.
The number of Americans seeking
unemployment benefits fell by 15,000
last week to 330,000. The drop was
slightly bigger than economists pre-
dicted, according to FactSet, a financial

the government jobs report for
December, which will be released Friday
morning. Economists expect employ-
ers added 196,000 jobs last month and
the unemployment rate remained at 7
Stocks surged into the end of 2013,
but the momentum hasn’t continued
into the first trading days of 2014. The
Dow and S&P 500 are down less than 1
percent this year.
In company news, Ford rose 30 cents,
or 2 percent, to $15.84 after announc-
ing an increase in its quarterly dividend
to 12.5 cents per share from 10 cents
per share. The news came a day after the
stock gained 1 percent on word that
Ford’s widely respected CEO, Alan
Mulally, would not leave to run
Abercrombie & Fitch jumped $5.49,
or 17 percent, to $38.70 in after-market
trading after the company raised its full-
year profit forecast. The company now
expects earnings of $1.55 to $1.65 a
share, well above the $1.47 per share
that analysts were looking for.
Alcoa slumped 39 cents, or 4 percent,
to $10.30 in after-market trading after
the company reported a fourth-quarter
profit that fell short of Wall Street’s
expectations. Alcoa traditionally sig-
nals the start of earnings season, due to
the fact it was a member of the Dow for
many years. Alcoa was removed from
the Dow in August.
Stocks mixed as retailers give weaker outlook
“The consumers are supposed to be the fuel of this
economy, and it doesn’t appear to be happening. ... If they’re
not spending money at the retailers, what’s going on?”
— Ian Winer, director of trading for Wedbush Securities
By Anne D’Innocenzio
NEW YORK — Several major retailers
slashed their fiscal fourth-quarter profit fore-
casts this week in the latest sign that
Americans didn’t spend briskly during the
holiday shopping season.
American Eagle Outfitters and Bed Bath &
Beyond are among seven retail chains so far
that have cut their expectations for their fis-
cal fourth quarter, which includes the critical
holiday shopping season when stores can
make up to 40 percent of their annual sales.
The holiday season was challenging for
stores as many Americans still were con-
tending with the effects of a shaky econom-
ic recovery. Weather was also an issue, as
snowstorms across the country kept some
shoppers home. And the season was six
days shorter, which meant less time for peo-
ple to shop.
Retailers discounted early and often to get
shoppers into stores. In fact, it was com-
mon to see sales of 50 percent off a store’s
entire stock of clothes during the final days
of the season. It appears that the discounts
got people to spend — sales for November
and December rose a better-than-expected
2.7 percent to $265.9 billion, according to
data tracker ShopperTrak. But the deep price
cuts ate away at retailers’ profit s.
As a result, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., a
Union, N.J. company that owns Cost Plus
World Market and Bed Bath & Beyond, on
Wednesday lowered its earnings forecast for
the fiscal fourth quarter and full year that
ends early this year after its third-quarter
results missed analysts’ expectations.
Pier 1 Imports Inc., a Fort Worth, Texas-
based chain that sells home decor, on
Thursday also downgraded its earnings fore-
cast for the fiscal fourth quarter and the full
year, citing a disappointing December.
And teen retailer American Eagle
Outfitters Inc. on Thursday reported that
sales at stores open at least a year fell 7 per-
cent in the nine weeks that ended on Jan. 4

Retailers of all stripes sing holiday blues

SAN FRANCISCO — Personal computer
sales sank even further during the holiday
shopping season, capping the steepest
annual decline in PC shipments since desk-
top and laptop machines began to appear
on people’s wish lists decades ago.
The fourth-quarter numbers released
Thursday by the research firms Gartner Inc.
and International Data Corp. serve as the
latest testament to the growing popularity
of smartphones and tablet computers. The
mobile devices are typically less expen-
sive than PCs and more convenient to use
than clunky desktops, making them
appealing alternatives to go online for
work, entertainment, information and
Gartner cited the mobile shift as the main
reason for a 7 percent drop in worldwide PC
sales from the previous year during the
three months ending in December, a period
when the demand for electronics is at its
peak. It marks the seventh consecutive
quarter of decreasing PC sales.
IDC came up with a slightly different fig-
ure. By its calculations, worldwide PC
shipments slipped by nearly 6 percent dur-
ing the fourth quarter.
For all of last year, PC sales plunged 10
percent, according to both Gartner and
IDC. Shipments of desktop and laptop
computers had never slipped by more than
4 percent in any other previous year.
The other annual declines occurred in
2001, in the midst of a technology bust
driven by a collapse in the Internet sector,
and in 2012, which marked the early
stages of the migration to tablet comput-

Diamond Foods Inc. will pay $5 million
to settle charges by the Securities and
Exchange Commission for its role in an
accounting scheme.
The SEC said Thursday that it charged the
San Francisco-based snack maker and two of
its former executives for their roles in the
falsifying walnut costs in order to boost
earnings. Diamond did not respond to a
request for comment.
The SEC said it has reached a settlement
with the company and former CEO Michael
Mendes. The regulator argues Mendes
should have known the reported costs were
incorrect at the time he certified the finan-
cial statements. Mendes has agreed to pay
$125,000 to settle charges of negligence
against him without admitting or denying
Mendes has already returned or forfeited
$4 million in pay received during the period
of fraudulent reporting. His attorney Sarah
Brody said in a statement that Mendes is
happy to have resolved the matter.
But the SEC said that its litigation con-
tinues against Diamond’s former chief
financial officer, Steven Neil.

Chevron oil production
falls, refining improves
SAN RAMON — Chevron Corp. said its
oil and gas production fell in the first two
months of the fourth quarter because of
planned maintenance and other downtime at
facilities in the Gulf of Mexico, Australia
and Angola.
In an update issued Thursday, Chevron
said oil and gas production slid 4 percent, to
2.56 million barrels per day, compared with
the full fourth quarter of 2012.
Wall Street expects Chevron’s earnings to
drop. Analysts polled by FactSet expect
Chevron to earn $2.88 per share in the
fourth quarter, on average, which would be a
decline of 3 percent compared with the
fourth quarter of 2012.
Chevron said its fourth-quarter financial
results would be similar to its third-quarter
results as better refining results make up for
lower oil and gas production. Chevron
earned $4.95 billion, or $2.57 per share, on
revenue of $56.6 billion in the third quarter.
Chevron released its update after financial
markets were closed. In after-hours trading,
Chevron shares slipped 56 cents to

playing for Seattle and back to the 49ers —
participating in all but one defensive snap
in a 23-20 wild-card playoff win at Green
Bay last week.
In the middle of the moving and change,
he welcomed a baby girl just after
“I tell everybody it’s
been the craziest two
months of my life,” Cox
said. “Back and forth to
Seattle, I had my little
girl Nov. 29. That Friday
when I got released, my
agent had called me and
told me they had already
contacted me right after I
came across the waivers.
I knew I was coming back before anybody
else did. I had no clue I was playing that
much, though.”
Cox earned it with an impressive week of
practice. He hopes to play a big part again
in the NFC divisional playoffs Sunday at
“We expected him to play to the best of
his ability, which he has,” defensive coor-
dinator Vic Fangio said Thursday. “Yeah, we
got him off the street a few days before the
game but he had spent the year and however
many games here, two training camps, so
he knew our system and it was an easy
adjustment for him that way. But he hadn’t
played any significant playing time while
he was with us and none when he was with
Seattle. Major kudos to him to go out and
perform the way he did.”
The 49ers used their nickel defensive
package for about a third of the game
against the Panthers in a 10-9 loss on Nov.
10, so Cox is unlikely to play nearly as
much this Sunday. And the Niners (13-4) are
hoping for the return of Carlos Rogers, who
missed Sunday’s victory against the Packers
with a strained right hamstring.
Eric Wright also was listed with a ham-
string injury, but he said he was healthy
enough to play and it wasn’t his decision
after he expected to play the nickel.
Rogers said Thursday he is improving
each day. While he began sprinting short
distances Wednesday, he has yet to test the
hamstring cutting side to side.

The first week of the Peninsula Athletic
Bay Division girls’ soccer schedule is in the
books. And with two games under each
team’s belt, you can see some patterns start-
ing to form.
Take San Mateo High School, for exam-
ple. Two games in and it’s not exactly rain-
ing goals on the offensive side of the ball.
But thanks to a tough and scrappy defense,
the Bearcats are 1-0-1 with a pair of shutouts
— their latest was a 0-0 draw with Carlmont
Thursday afternoon at home.
“I’m happy with the draw,” said San
Mateo head coach Carlos Bover, whose
team beat Sequoia 1-0 to start league play on
Tuesday. “It was a mostly even game. The
first half [against Carlmont] it was mostly
us. We had a couple good chances, good
passing against a very strong team. But the
second half, they turned to out to be strong
and they had a lot of chances.
“We didn’t have to defend as much in the
first half because we had possession. So, it
was much easier. It didn’t feel like we had
much pressure on our defense. But second
half, we totally did. I was counting the sec-
onds in the second half.”
Carlmont knocked on the Bearcat door to
the tune of 17 shots in the last 40 minutes
of the game — as opposed to just one shot
on frame for San Mateo in the same time
period. But for all the efforts of Soha Said,
Kayla Fong and Carolyn Donohoe, the ball
simply did not want to find twine —
although San Mateo goalkeeper Kitty Qu
had a lot to say about that.
“She played really well, especially the
second half,” Bover said. “The first half, she
didn’t have too much to do. The second half,
she came up big for us. She did that for us
last year and we always look forward to good
performances from her. ”
“I think a little bit of the difference in the
game was finishing our opportunities,” said
Carlmont head coach Tina Doss, whose
Scots took down Hillsdale 2-1 in the PAL
opener. “Today, I can’t say that they weren’t
trying to score, or they weren’t trying to get
ahead. But we just didn’t finish our opportu-
Scots can’t solve Bearcats ‘D’

WASHINGTON — Aculture of bad behavior
and disrespect among athletes at U.S. mili-
tary academies is one part of the continuing
problem of sexual assaults at the schools,
according to a new Defense Department
report that comes in the wake of scandals
that rocked teams at all three academies last
Defense officials say the culture permeates
the academies beyond just the locker room,
saying that students often feel they need to
put up with sexist and offensive behavior as
part of their school life, according to the
report obtained by the Associated Press.
The annual report on sexual assaults at the
U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New
York, the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis,
Md., and the Air Force Academy in Colorado
Springs, Colo., identifies sports and club
teams as an area where they need to expand
sexual assault prevention training for coach-
es and faculty. The report is expected to be
made public Friday.
Overall, reported sexual assaults at the
academies went down, from 80 to 70, during
the school year that ended last May. Of
those, almost two-thirds were at the Air Force
It also notes that alcohol is often a factor
in sexual assaults, and it urges military lead-
ers to do more to restrict and monitor drink-
ing and liquor sales.
Athletes and sports teams are coming under
increased scrutiny in light of separate harass-
ment and assault incidents at all three
At the Naval Academy, three members of
the football team faced accusations in a com-
plicated sexual assault case involving a
female student at an off-campus party.
Charges were dropped against one team mem-
ber and may be dropped against another. The
third is still scheduled for trial.
At West Point, the men’s rugby team was
temporarily disbanded, and more than a
dozen seniors were demoted and faced other
punishment and restrictions, after emails
that were derogatory to women came to light.
And there was a similar problem with sports
team members at the Air Force Academy cir-
culating a document that disparaged women.

NEWYORK — Dan Le Batard was kicked out
of the Baseball Writers’ Association of
America for one year and barred from future Hall
of Fame votes after he turned over his 2014
ballot to a website that allowed readers to
choose the selections.
The decision was made Thursday by the
BBWAAboard of directors, a day after Le Batard
said he let Deadspin.com cast his ballot.
“The BBWAA regards
Hall of Fame voting as the
ultimate privilege, and any
abuse of that privilege is
unacceptable,” the organi-
zation said in a statement.
Le Batard, an ESPN host

STANFORD — By David Shaw’s standards,
Stanford had another successful season.
The Cardinal won the Pac-12 for the sec-
ond consecutive year, went to a BCS bowl for
the fourth straight season and will likely
send several players into the NFL again.
While Stanford lost to Michigan State in the
Rose Bowl, Shaw believes the best days are
still ahead for his program — especially
with a four-team playoff for the national title
starting next season.
“You have to come out of the season say-
ing, ‘This was a successful season. It didn’t
end the way that we wanted it to. But as far as
being one of the better teams in college
football, you have to say that we were up
there,”’ Shaw said Thursday. “Do we have
high aspirations again for next year?
Absolutely. ”
The Cardinal will need to replace several
top players — notably departing lineback-
ers Trent Murphy and Shayne Skov, defen-
sive end Ben Gardner and running back Tyler
Shaw said that linebacker A.J. Tarpley and
defensive end Henry Anderson will return for
their final year of eligibility. He also said
All-American left guard
David Yankey, right tack-
le Cameron Fleming and
free safety Ed Reynolds
are still deciding whether
to declare for the NFL
Yankey is widely
expected to leave and be
one of the top interior
linemen taken, while
Fleming and Reynolds are projected middle-
to-late round picks who “could take it to the
last day” to decide, Shaw said. The deadline
for underclassmen to declare for the draft is
Jan. 15.
Shaw is looking forward to another date:
Feb. 24 — the first day of spring practice.
Wide receiver and All-American kick
returner Ty Montgomery, who injured his
knee in the Rose Bowl, is expected to be
ready but may be held out of the first portion
of spring practice as a precaution, Shaw said.
His injury did not require surgery.
Regardless of who’s on the field, Stanford
will carry the same high expectations the
program had heading into this past season.
The Cardinal claimed the past two confer-
ence crowns, but for the fourth straight sea-
son they were one loss away from possibly
playing for the BCS title. While Stanford
has upended Oregon two straight years, close
losses at Utah and Southern California kept
the Cardinal out of the national champi-
onship mix.
After earning the highest ranking in The
Associated Press’ preseason poll in school
history at No. 4, Stanford (11-3) finished at
No. 11 following its 24-20 loss to Michigan
State in the Granddaddy of Them All.
Count Shaw among those who feels the
sting of a season ending in defeat. But he
also takes the disappointment of losing the
Rose Bowl as a sign of how far the program
has come.
“I refuse to look at it as anything other
than we are what we set out to be, which is
one of the best teams in college football,”
Shaw said.
If the past few years have proved any-
thing, it’s that Stanford likely isn’t going
away anytime soon.
Quarterback Kevin Hogan will be entering
his redshirt junior season, and Keller Chryst
— one of the country’s top recruits from
right across the street at Palo Alto High
School and the son of San Francisco 49ers
quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst — will be
pushing for his job along with soon-to-be
redshirt freshman Ryan Burns.
The offensive line should remain stellar.
And while 1,700-yard rusher Gaffney is
gone, Stanford has shown an ability to
replace big-time running backs in recent sea-
The biggest question on defense might be
whether standout defensive coordinator
Derek Mason, a rising star in the profession,
leaves for a bigger job.
Unlike previous years, though, Shaw
enters this one talking about more than just
winning the Pac-12 title with his players.
The four-team playoff, the strength of the
Pac-12 and the growing perception of the
conference gives him hope the league’s win-
ner will earn one of the spots to play for
something that has for so long seemed
unreachable at Stanford: a national title.
“We have the most competitive conference
in the nation. And if you win this confer-
ence, you’ll get invited to that four-team
playoff. That’s just the way that it is,” Shaw
said. “It’s not just computers and random
voters that may or may not see us play.
There’s a committee that can look and say,
‘OK, we’re going to take the teams that win
the major conferences. And if there’s a ques-
tion, then we’ll debate who that fourth team
is and who’s going to play who and what the
actual seeding is, etc.”
Stanford had successful season, tough ending

NEWYORK — Stephen Curry, an NBAAll-Star snub last
year, is in position to start this year’s game.
The Golden State sharpshooter moved past Chris Paul
into second place among Western Conference guards

Curry trails the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant but is about 26,000
votes ahead of Paul, the injured Clippers’ point guard.
Voting runs through Jan. 20, and the starters for the Feb. 16

Curry wasn’t chosen last season despite averaging 20.9
points at the time of the selections. He was the league’s
eighth-leading scorer at the time and the
highest one not chosen for the game.
Paul ended up being voted the MVP of
the West’s victory in Houston.
Heat forward LeBron James leads all
players with 1.076 million votes, fewer
than 22,000 ahead of Oklahoma City’s

MELBOURNE, Australia — As three-time
defending champion Novak Djokovic held
the Australian Open trophy in a photo shoot
before Friday’s draw, he joked that having
his fingerprints on it may in some way help
him win the title for a fourth consecutive
The draw certainly didn’t dent Djokovic’s
chances, with top-seeded Rafael Nadal, No. 4
Andy Murray, No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro
and No. 6 Roger Federer all stacked in the
opposite half.
Djokovic’s new coach, six-time Grand
Slam champion Boris Becker, attended the
draw and duly noted: “It’s a loaded half, that’s
for sure.”
On the women’s side, top-ranked Serena
Williams opens against Australian teenager
Ashleigh Barty and has 2011 U.S. Open
champion Sam Stosur and two-time finalist
Li Na in her half.
Two-time defending Australian Open cham-
pion Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova
are in the opposite half, meaning they could
only meet Serena Williams in the final.
The top half of the men’s draw was the talk-
ing point, starting with Nadal’s first-round
match against Australian Bernard Tomic.
“I think that’ll be a night match, for sure,”
Becker quipped. “But a tough, tricky one for
both players. Tomic will certainly have the
home support.”
Nadal missed last year’s Australian Open
with a left knee injury during a seven-month
absence from the tour. He returned to win 10
titles in 2013 and regain the No. 1 ranking,
overhauling Djokovic in October.
Tomic reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals
in 2011 and has been ranked as high as No.
His only previous meeting with Nadal
resulted in a straight-sets defeat in the third
round of the 2011 Australian Open.
Nadal also has No. 25 Gael Monfils, former
No. 1-ranked Lleyton Hewitt and 16th-seeded
Kei Nishikori in his section.
Federer opens against Australian wildcard
entry James Duckworth and Murray takes on
Go Soeda of Japan. Likely quarterfinals on
that half would feature Nadal against del
Potro and Federer against Murray.
Djokovic will face Lukas Lacko in the first
round in the bottom half of the draw which
also contains No. 3 David Ferrer, No. 7
Tomas Berdych and No. 8 Stanislas
In the bottom half of the women’s draw,
Azarenka faces Johanna Larsson of Sweden
in the first round, while Sharapova takes on
American Bethanie Mattek-Sands and could
face former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic in the
quarterfinals and Azarenka in the semis.
Stosur, Australia’s only seeded player at
No. 17, opens against Czech Klara
Zakopalova, the same player she was set to
play in the Hobart International semifinals
on Friday.
Nadal, Murray, Federer all in the same half of Aussie Open
“I think it hit a point in the game where
everyone was like ‘I don’t want to finish,
you finish, no, you finish’ — it turned into
one of those games. And it starts getting
into their heads when you’re taking shot
after shot after shot and nothing is going
in. That’s one of the things we need to talk
about — being patient and waiting for the
right time, continuing to push and not stop-
ping. We’ll work on it and figure it out.”
The Scots, with Said and Fong, definitely
have the pieces to try and figure things out.
In the second half, they peppered Qu with
shots that the sophomore and reigning PAL
co-goalkeeper of the year was up to.
“Carlmont has a very good offensive
line,” Bover said. “They have three very
strong players up top that are very, very
good. Very hard to spot. One of our main tar-
gets when we started the game was to spot
No. 10 (Fong). She’s got good skill. I think
she’s the best player in the league by far.
Smart, technical so if you stop her, you got
some good chances. If you don’t stop her,
she’s going to make your life crazy. ”
San Mateo put a lot more pressure on
Carlmont in the first half. They had eight
shots on goal — one of which rung off the
post and another, by Katie Wischer, was
inches from making it 1-0.
“The defense played great,” Doss said. “I
have no complaints. We talked about how in
the first half, we were a little too far back
and I wanted to step more into their passing
lanes and they that adjustment in the second
half and did a really good job.”
Menlo-Atherton continued it hot start to
the season with a 5-0 defeat of Sequoia. In
two league games, the Bears have outscored
opponents 8-0. Sarah McLeod scored twice
in the win.
“I have high hopes for them,” said M-A
head coach Paul Snow. “We expect to be bat-
tling alongside Woodside and we expect
Carlmont to be up there as well. We’re hop-
ing to contend for a title.”
Junior Annie Harrier got M-Aon the board
early in the first half when she finished a
perfectly fed ball from freshman Katie
Guenin. McLeod scored the first of her two
goals on an assist from sophomore Talia
Missan. Later Missan received a ball off a
throw-in, dribbled down the sideline and
took a hard shot from the outside right to
find the back of the net unassisted. The final
goal of the half came when Miranda Simes
passed to Amanda Wiseman, who scored to
put the Bears up 4-0 at the half.
In the second half, McLeod intercepted a
ball off an attempted clear by a Sequoia
defender and finished it for her second goal
of the match.
The injury bug continues to bite
Burlingame while Hillsdale is proving
they’re a force to be reckoned with. The
Panthers and Knights tied 1-1. Alysse La
Mond scored in the 76th minute. “Hillsdale
played really well,” said Burlingame head
coach Phillip De Rosa. “They’re definite
better than they’ve been in the past. We had
our opportunities today but when you don’t
capitalize, they come back to bite you.”
After drawing with Burlingame earlier in
the week, Woodside bounced back with a
dominating 5-0 win over Aragon. The
Wildcats got goals from five different play-
ers in the win.
“I think Tuesday’s game was a nice dose of
reality for us,” said Woodside head coach
Jose Navarrete. “I think that’s going to be
the case all season. Teams are really going
to test us. We came out with more drive
today. ”
Over in the Ocean Division, Half Moon
Bay finished off a 2-1 start to league by
beating South San Francisco 3-1. Tatiana
Quintanilla had two assists.
“I think we played kinda timid,” said
Cougars head coach Katie Moore about her
team’s 2-1 loss to Terra Nova earlier in the
week. “We mentally killed ourselves. But we
regrouped and are playing better. My team is
really talented. They just have to believe in
Speaking of Terra Nova, they improved to
3-0 with a 5-0 victory over Westmoor.
Leilani Kaea scored twice in the victory.
“I just think the girls are playing really
well together,” said Terra Nova head coach
Ernie Brockmeyer.

SAN JOSE — Joe Pavelski
scored two goals to extend his run
of strong play and the San Jose
Sharks beat Jimmy Howard for the
ninth straight time in the regular
season with a 4-1 win over the
Detroit Red Wings on Thursday
Dan Boyle and Andrew
Desjardins also scored for the
Sharks, who bounced back after
losing two of three on a recent
road trip. Antti Niemi made 24
saves to beat the Red Wings for the
fourth straight time with just three
goals allowed in that span.
Tomas Tatar scored the lone goal
for the Red Wings, who began a
tough three-game California
swing with a loss. Detroit follows
up this game with weekend visits
to Los Angeles and Anaheim. The
three California teams have just
six regulation losses in 63 home
games this season.
Howard made 19 saves but
allowed three goals in the second
period to end his night and extend
his struggles against the Sharks,
who haven’t lost to him in the reg-
ular season in more than three
years. San Jose’s 10 regular-sea-
son wins against Howard are the
second-most for any team, trailing
only Chicago’s 12.
Howard allowed two soft goals
in the second period to help the
Sharks break open a close game.
The onslaught started when
Desjardins skated into the offen-
sive zone and beat Howard to the
short side from a bad angle for his
second goal of the season to make
it 2-1.
Pavelski added to the lead when
he knocked in the rebound of Brad
Stuart’s shot, giving him 12 goals
in his last 15 games. It was
Pavelski’s 22nd career two-goal
game, but he is still seeking his
first career hat trick.
Boyle added to the lead on a
power play when he beat Howard
with a wrist shot from the circle
that made it 4-1. Boyle, Joe
Thornton and Logan Couture were
among the Sharks in considera-
tion for the Canadian Olympic
coached by Detroit’s Mike
Babcock who were left off the ros-
ter this week.
Thornton had two assists, giv-
ing him 14 in his last 10 games
and a league-leading 45 on the sea-
son, while Couture is out for a few
weeks with a hand injury.

If he’s unable to play at full
speed, Rogers realizes it might be
better for Tarell Brown and
Tramaine Brock to remain the
starters in the base defense, with
Cox or Wright contributing in the
nickel. In addition, rookie safety
Eric Reid is healthy after suffering
a concussion in the first meeting
with Carolina.
“It’s frustrating. I’ve got to help
those guys out, and I’m going to
continue to take notes as if I’m

to be aggressive with it but not
too aggressive and hurt it more.”
Cox will stay ready for whatever
role he is asked to handle.
This is another fresh start for
him — and on the NFL’s big stage.
Cox got cut by Seattle on Dec.
27, then re-signed with San
Francisco three days later. By
Sunday, with only a handful of
practices under his belt back with
his old team, Cox played nearly
the entire game.
“I had no clue I was going to
play that much,” Cox said. “I actu-
ally didn’t even know I was going
to be starting in the nickel until
right before the game.”
He was initially released by the
49ers on Nov. 12 and joined the
rival NFC West champion
Seahawks on Nov. 26.
Now, if the reigning NFC cham-
pion Niners move on, they could
be headed to Seattle for a matchup
with Cox’s former Seahawks with

Seattle must first get by New

ASHBURN, Va. — The face was dif-
ferent, the words familiar. Like Mike
Shanahan and nearly every recent
Washington Redskins coach, Jay
Gruden is anxious to declare an end to
franchise’s days of dysfunction.
“I don’t know what happened last
year,” Gruden said. “I know that inter-
viewing with Dan Snyder and Bruce
Allen and everybody here that the
passion for excellence is there. All
they want to do is win, and they’re
going to provide me with every
avenue to win.”
Gruden was introduced Thursday as
the man charged with ending the per-
petual state of turmoil the team has
endured under owner Snyder and
recently under general manager Allen.
Gruden was a given a five-year con-
tact for his first NFL head coaching
gig, taking over a 3-13 team that has
finished last in the NFC East in five of
the last six seasons.
“We HAVE to get it right,” said
Allen, who led the search and inter-
viewed six candidates. “We need to
get the franchise back on track in a
winning direction. ... We were
looking for a new leader, somebody
who can inspire our football team.
We knew it was more than just X and
Os, it was about finding the right
person to build a team chemistry
that we needed.”
Gruden is Snyder’s eighth coach in
16 seasons as an NFL owner. Unlike
Shanahan, who was fired last week,
Gruden will not have final say over all
football matters. He’ll report to
Allen, who has taken charge of
assembling the roster and other per-
sonnel decisions.

Brutal tribute
to Navy SEALs
By Jake Coyle
NEW YORK — Marcus Luttrell, the former Navy
SEAL whose deadly mission in Afghanistan has been
turned into the film “Lone Survivor,” strides into a
hotel room for an interview, trailed by his service
dog, Mr. Rigby.
The tall, hulking, goateed Navy Cross recipient
greets a journalist with a rock-hard grip, and
nods to director Peter Berg and star Mark
Wahlberg, who plays him in the film. This is
clearly not what he wants to be doing.
Based on Luttrell’s best-selling 2007 memoir,
“Lone Survivor” is about a 2005 four-man opera-
tion in northeastern Afghanistan’s Kunar province that
fell apart when a trio of goat herders stumbled upon the
staked-out SEALs.
After releasing the civilians and aborting the mission, the
SEALs were quickly ambushed by the Taliban in a firefight that
tumbled down a rocky gulch, killed Luttrell’s three fellow
SEALs, left Luttrell badly injured and, in an attempted res-
cue, killed 16 more men.
“Lone Survivor,” which opens like a recruitment video
with documentary footage of intense SEAL training, is the
latest in a series of films that pays tribute to the Navy’s spe-
cial forces: In messy, uncertain wars, they’re elite practi-
tioners of precision. In the era of the superhero film, the
Navy SEALs have inspired filmmakers as the genuine arti-
Luttrell would rather not talk about any of it. He went
along with “Lone Survivor” and wrote the book at the
urging of his superiors. Compared to the actual events,
the movie is no traumatic experience for Luttrell.
“I went through it in real life, so a movie about it isn’t
going to affect me in any way,” says the 38-year-old
Hollywood and the American military are worlds
apart. But “Lone Survivor” is a uniquely close col-
laboration, one in which Berg and Wahlberg (both
producers) worked under significant pressure from
the families of those who died and active-duty
SEALs to faithfully render the soldiers’ lives, in bat-
tle and in brotherhood.
“I was at the screening when there were a hundred

JAN. 12. The Peninsula Museum of Art
presents three new exhibitions for
2014: Savage Garden by Kalani
Engles, Hermetica by Tobias Tovera
and Old Lovers by Eleanor Dickinson.
Engles’ and Tovera’s works are large in
scale: Engles’ exhilarate, and Tovera’s
motivate. Engles’ immense oils reflect
the wild forces at play in a natural gar-
den, while Tovera’s wildness is
revealed both in a mixed media collec-
tion, and live via an alchemical work-
in-progress created on site just for the
Museum. In contrast, Dickinson’s
inspiration comes from the imperfect
yet endlessly interesting facets of the
aging human form, captured in an inti-
mate collection of ink drawings
depicting old lovers. Collectively, the
three artists, who complement one
another and highlight the depth and
diversity of Bay Area talent, share
their individual visions. Engles said,
“The abstraction in Savage Garden
results from the arrangement of the fig-
ures on the canvas. Obviously, no real
garden is configured like this one.
Instead, I want the viewer to experi-
ence the essence of a wild garden unen-
cumbered by physical context. The
juxtaposition of the figurative ele-
ments is designed to convey a sense of
energy and motion while maintaining
technical balance in spatial composi-
tion and color. The name Savage
Garden suggests the primordial force
of plants competing for space and sun-
light without regard for biological
order or human design.” Of pieces such
as Pyrochlore, Tovera said, “As an
artist, I am interested in experiment-
ing with alchemical processes in the
pursuit of discovering a “third space,”
a zone of possibility that exists
beyond restrictive dualities. My aim is
to create transmuted spaces, places
where energy shifts, changes or
renews itself. From the introduction of
water and mineral to the use of science
and the occult, this translates into
working with opposing elements to
reveal how they interact, transform or
propel each other.” Dickinson said,
“The original enthusiasm to draw
aging lovers was natural, organic and
unthinking. I have always much pre-
ferred people and animals drawn in
moments of heightened emotion or
ecstasy. Naturally, drawing lovers was
an exciting treat and I had no bias
toward the young ones or need to show
formal perfection, ideal form or uni-
versal order. Indeed, as I found more
subjects, the older people proved much
more rewarding to work with techni-
cally — there was just more there to
draw, thousands of irregularities of the
body from which to choose.”
The public is invited to the free
opening reception from 1 p.m. to 4
p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12. All three
exhibits run until March 16. The
Peninsula Museum of Art is located at
1777 California Drive, Burlingame.
The Museum store carries artwork from
local artists, offering a selection of
jewelry, cards, ceramics, glassware,
mosaics, oil paintings and scarves in
silk, chiffon and wool. For more infor-
mation call 692-2101 or visit penin-
CITY. “The human spirit is a natural
gardener, producing bouquets in the
soul constantly,” said Leigh Toldi, one
of the artists whose painting
“Unfolding Bouquet” will be in the
“New Beginnings” art show at City
Hall in Daly City to celebrate the
induction and inaugural term of David
J. Canepa as Mayor of Daly City. The
exhibit, co-curated by Marian Yap and
Bonnie J. Smith, runs from Jan. 16
through March 31 and features 22
members of the Peninsula Chapter of
Women’s Caucus for Art — painters,
photographers, textile artists, print-
makers, sculptors and mixed media
Alysanne McGaffey describes her
recent watercolor poetically, saying,
“Waves sweep in roiling, tumbling,
scrubbing the beach clear to begin life
anew with each passing tide, creating
my ‘Blue Beach.’” Fiber artist Bonnie
J. Smith’s work, titled “The Team,” is
based on a long, life-changing project
that involved teamwork. She feels that
it relates to the project of becoming
mayor and needing a team to make it
work. Lorraine Capperell maintains a
regimen that includes tai chi, medita-
tion and producing a new watercolor
PYROCHLORE. Pyrochlore by Tobias Tovera is among the new pieces on exhibit at
the Peninsula Museum of Art in Burlingame through March 16.

ABC’s ‘Bachelor’ Juan
Pablo Galavis is a hit
By Alicia Rancilio

drama this season on “The Bachelor” aren’t alone. Its
latest star, Juan Pablo Galavis, says

(Hartsock) but around the house they
weren’t . ”
The 32-year-old former pro soccer player competed for
the affection of Hartsock last summer on “The
Bachelorette.” He wasn’t chosen for a one-on-one date
and had very little air time before getting sent home.
Still, he made such an impression with viewers that ABC
decided to make him “The Bachelor. ”
Host Chris Harrison admitted recently to Galavis
being a surprise candidate.

WASHINGTON — Some of the
nation’s largest food companies have
cut daily calorie counts by an average of
78 per person, a new study says, more
than four times the amount the industry
pledged to slash by next year.
The study sponsored by the Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation found that
between 2007 and 2012, the estimated
total cut in food product calories from a
group of 16 major food companies was
in the range of 6.4 trillion.
Seventy-eight calories would be about
the same as an average cookie or a medi-
um apple, and the federal government
estimates an average daily diet at around
2,000 calories. The study said the calo-
ries cut averaged out to 78 calories per
day for the entire U.S. population.
The 2010 pledge taken by the compa-
nies — including General Mills Inc.,
Campbell Soup Co., ConAgra Foods
Inc., Kraft Foods Inc., Kellogg Co.,
Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo Inc. and
Hershey Co. — was to cut 1 trillion
calories by 2012 and 1.5 trillion calo-
ries by 2015.
The Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation signed on to hold the com-
panies accountable, and that group hired
researchers at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill to painstaking-
ly count the calories in almost every
single packaged item in the grocery
store. To do that, the UNC researchers
used the store-based scanner data of hun-
dreds of thousands of foods, commercial
databases and nutrition facts panels to
calculate exactly how many calories the
companies were selling.
The researchers aren’t yet releasing
the entire study, but they said Thursday
that the companies have exceeded their
own goals by a wide margin.
Dr. James Marks, director of the
Health Group at the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation, said the group is
pleased with the results but the compa-
nies “must sustain that reduction, as
they’ve pledged to do, and other food
companies should follow their lead.”
The Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation is a nonpartisan philan-
thropic and research organization that
works to improve the nation’s health.
Even though the companies that made
the commitment represent most of the
nation’s most well-known food compa-
nies, they sold only a little more than a
third of all packaged foods and bever-
ages at the beginning of the study.
Missing are many off-label brands sold
under the names of retailers, and it’s
unknown whether those products have
It is also unclear how the reduction in
calories translates into consumers’
diets. When the companies made the
pledge in 2010, they said one way they
would try and reduce calories would be to
change portion sizes in an attempt to
persuade consumers to eat less. The
companies also said that they would
develop new lower-calorie options and
change existing products so they have
fewer calories.
Evidence of those efforts are visible
on any grocery store shelf. Many prod-
ucts now come in lower calorie ver-
sions, are baked instead of fried, or
sold in miniature as well as larger ver-
Marks says he believes that compa-
nies’ efforts to package smaller serv-
ings — 100 calorie packs of popular
snacks, for example — and smaller cans
of sugary drinks may have contributed
to the reduction in calories. He says the
main contributors most likely were the
public’s increasing willingness to buy
healthier foods and companies respond-
ing to those consumers.
The companies involved are all part of
an industry coalition of food businesses
called the Healthy Weight Commitment
Foundation that has organized to help
reduce obesity. The foundation pledged
to reduce the calories as part of an agree-
ment with a group of nonprofit organi-
zations and made the 2010 announce-
ment as part of first lady Michelle
Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to com-
bat childhood obesity.
To meet the commitment, the compa-
nies took a variety of approaches. In a
statement Thursday, Coca-Cola said it
had introduced more than 100 no-calorie
and low-calorie beverages in the last
seven years and had introduced mini-
cans of many of its products. Kraft said
it had changed recipes to lower sugars in
Capri Sun juice drinks and Kraft barbe-
cue sauce.
Food industry cuts calories four-fold over pledge
The 2010 pledge taken by the companies — including General Mills Inc., Campbell Soup Co., ConAgra
Foods Inc.,Kraft Foods Inc.,Kellogg Co.,Coca-Cola Co.,PepsiCo Inc.and Hershey Co.— was to cut 1 trillion
calories by 2012 and 1.5 trillion calories by 2015.

WASHINGTON — Doctors are warning
that if Congress cuts food stamps, the feder-
al government could be socked with bigger
health bills. Maybe not immediately, they
say, but over time if the poor wind up in doc-
tors’ offices or hospitals as a result.
Among the health risks of hunger are
spiked rates of diabetes and developmental
problems for young children down the road.
The doctors’ lobbying effort comes as
Congress is working on a compromise farm
bill that’s certain to include food stamp cuts.
Republicans want heftier reductions than do
Democrats in yet another partisan battle
over the government’s role in helping poor
Food stamps, known as the Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, feed
1 in 7 Americans and cost almost $80 bil-
lion a year, twice what it cost five years ago.
Conservatives say the program spiraled out
of control as the economy struggled and the
costs are not sustainable. They say the need-
iest people will not go hungry.
The health and financial risks of hunger
have not played a major role in the debate.
But the medical community says cutting
food aid could backfire through higher
Medicaid and Medicare costs.
“If you’re interested in saving health care
costs, the dumbest thing you can do is cut
nutrition,” said Dr. Deborah Frank of
Boston Medical Center, who founded the
Children’s HealthWatch pediatric research
“People don’t make the hunger-health
A study published this week helps illus-
trate that link. Food banks report longer
lines at the end of the month as families
exhaust their grocery budgets, and
California researchers found that more poor
people with a dangerous diabetes complica-
tion are hospitalized then, too.
The researchers analyzed eight years of
California hospital records to find cases of
hypoglycemia, when blood sugar plummets,
and link them to patients’ ZIP codes.
Among patients from low-income neigh-
borhoods, hospitalizations were 27 percent
higher in the last week of the month com-
pared with the first, when most states send
out government checks and food stamps, said
lead researcher Dr. Hilary Seligman of the
University of California, San Francisco. But
hospitalizations didn’t increase among dia-
betics from higher-income areas, she report-
ed Tuesday in the journal Health Affairs.
Seligman couldn’t prove that running low
on food was to blame. But she called it the
most logical culprit and said the cost of
treating hypoglycemia even without a hos-
pitalization could provide months of food
stamp benefit s.
“The cost trade-offs are sort of ridiculous,”
Seligman said.
She is working on a project with Feeding
America, a network of food banks, to try to
improve health by providing extra, dia-
betes-appropriate foods, including fresh
produce and whole-grain cereals and pastas,
for diabetics at a few food banks in
California, Texas and Ohio.
Last year, research from the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable
Trusts estimated that a cut of $2 billion a
year in food stamps could trigger in an
increase of $15 billion in medical costs for
diabetes over the next decade.
Other research shows children from food-
insecure families are 30 percent more likely
to have been hospitalized for a range of ill-
nesses. But after a temporary boost in bene-
fits from the 2009 economic stimulus, chil-
dren whose families used food stamps were
significantly more likely to be well than
kids in low-income families that didn’t par-
ticipate, Children’s HealthWatch found.
About half of food stamp recipients are chil-
dren, and 10 percent are elderly
How much would be cut from the food-
stamp program ranges from $400 million a
year in a Senate-passed farm bill to $4 bil-
lion a year in the House version.
Congressional negotiators now are eyeing
about $800 million a year in cuts.
That would be on top of cuts in November,
when that 2009 temporary benefit expired.
According to the Agriculture Department, a
family of four receiving food stamps is now
getting $36 less a month. The average
household benefit is around $270.
Since then, food banks are reporting more
demand because people’s food stamps aren’t
stretching as far, said Maura Daly of Feeding
Conservatives pushing the cuts say they
want to target benefits to the neediest peo-
ple, arguing that those who are truly hungry
should have no problem getting assistance
if they apply.
The final bill will most likely crack down
on states that give recipients $1 in heating
assistance in order to trigger higher food
stamp benefits. Republicans say anyone
who truly qualifies for a higher benefit still
can get it through SNAP.
The bill also may test new work require-
ments for recipients in a few states, a priori-
ty for many Republicans.
“While this program is an important part
of our safety net, our overriding goal should
be to help our citizens with the education
and skills they need to get back on their feet
so that they can provide for themselves and
their families,” said Majority Leader Eric
Cantor, R-Va., when the farm bill was on the
House floor last summer.
Democrats and anti-hunger groups oppos-
ing the reductions have said that cutting
food stamps could worsen health and raise
health costs for the poorest.
“Food is medicine,” says Massachusetts
Rep. Jim McGovern, who has led the
Democrats’ defense of the food stamp pro-
gram. “Critics focus almost exclusively on
how much we spend, and I wish they under-
stood that if we did this better, we could save
a lot more money in health care costs.”
Dr. Thomas McInerny, past president of
the American Academy of Pediatrics, said too
often, poor families buy cheap, high-calorie
junk food because it’s filling, but it lacks
nutrients needed for proper child develop-
ment. The two main consequences are later-
in-life diabetes, and iron deficiency that,
especially in the first three years of life, can
damage a developing brain so that children
have trouble learning in school, he said.
“The children may not look malnourished
the way children in Third-World countries
look, but they are malnourished,” he said.
Doctors say cutting food stamps could backfire
“While this program is an important part
of our safety net, our overriding goal should be to help
our citizens with the education and skills they need to get back on
their feet so that they can provide for themselves and their families.”

NEWYORK — The idea: With Food Network star Guy Fieri
and comedian Judy Gold as my guides, find the best spots for
Super Bowl-style grub in Manhattan.
The reality: Fire up “When Harry Met Sally” and loop it on
the diner scene (yes, the moaning). Now blast a laugh track,
then add a profanity-spewing rabbi, enough X-rated com-
mentary to render much of the evening’s dialogue
unquotable, and such gluttonous portions of high-fat food
that by the end at least one of us would be vomiting.
You have a sense of the evening. Which is to say, pairing
up with Fieri and Gold was more amusing, but less helpful,
than hoped.
With the Super Bowl coming to the New York area next
month, I wanted to know where to go for
the over-the-top fare we’ve come to
associate with the big game. So
last month I got a tour from Fieri,
a master of too-much-is-not-
enough eating. He’s pimping the
new season of his show,
“Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity
Cook-Off,” so he brought along
Gold, one of his co-stars.
Alittle predictably, we started the
evening at Guy’s American Kitchen
and Bar, Fieri’s Times Square restau-
rant made as famous by a scathing New
York Times review as by the celebrity
himself. This was my first visit and —
true to the hype — this is not the
place to go for great food. It was,
however, an excellent place for
great grub.
As Fieri regaled us with
his Super Bowl party food
philosophy — “You
can’t just order 10 piz-
zas! That’s a throw-
away! That’s an insult
to the game. You’ve
got to put some time
into it.” — the
onslaught began.
Something called
Mongolian chicken
wings bathed in a
sticky honey-soy sauce
had Gold moaning loudly.
Oh my God, it’s so good!
AHRRRRRRR!” And except
to occasionally ask waitress-
es about gynecological proce-
dures (just roll with it), this
pretty much became her sound-
track for the evening.
We were all smitten with
Round 2, a rack of sashimi
tacos (crispy wontons filled
with ahi tuna, mango jicama salsa and a soy glaze).
Knowing we had three more meals to come, we could and
should have stopped there. We didn’t. General Tso’s pork
shank — a massive hunk of tender, sweet meat — landed
with a thud on the table and in our guts. It was followed
closely by a colossal French dip sandwich.
“I don’t think everyone will subscribe to this, but I put in
as much time and attention when I’m putting together a
Super Bowl spread as I do Thanksgiving,” Fieri said. “This
is the greatest day of the greatest game.”
Still it came. Aburger topped with mac and cheese, bacon
and six varieties of cheese. Bowls of beef, sausage and
bacon chili. Tiramisu. Bread pudding doused with Jack
And then we piled into a car. Up next, Ben’s, a kosher deli
on 38th Street. Gold: “Ben’s?” she yelled. “We’re gonna
have some pastrami!”
We did. And matzo ball soup. And stuffed cabbage. And
latkes. And a knish. And kreplach (a dumpling). And a
rabbi so excited to stop by our booth he dropped F-bombs
while telling Fieri what a fan he is.
But a Jewish deli for Super Bowl grub? Not your con-
ventional accompaniment to spreads usually populated
with guacamole and nachos. But Fieri and Gold agreed —
whether it’s classics like chicken soup or bagels and
cream cheese, Jewish food is comfort food. It’s rich and
easy. It’s right.
“Especially this time of year, if you’re getting ready
to go to the Super Bowl or you’re going tailgating,
man, I want somebody to bust out matzo ball soup,”
Fieri said.
Gold was getting concerned with being
only halfway through our culinary
agenda. “How are we going to eat
anywhere else today? I’m going to
puke!” So we compromised.
Instead of going into Defonte’s
of Brooklyn — the Midtown
outpost of the nearly 100-
year-old Italian sandwich
shop in Brooklyn — we
pulled up outside and got
takeout to eat in the car.
We ate it as we headed
to our fourth stop.
Four massive subs
and a pile of much-
needed napkins
came through the
window — a
Nicky special
(ham, salami,
fried eggplant,
provolone cheese,
and marinated mush-
rooms, among other
things); a hot roast beef (roast
beef, fresh mozzarella, fried
eggplant and jus); a Sinatra
special (steak pizzaiola and
fresh mozzarella); and a fire-
house special (roast pork,
fried eggplant, broccoli raab and provolone cheese).
“Oh my God, you’ve got to try this,”’ Gold said, shoving
a hunk of the firehouse special at Fieri.
“You’re like a Jewish drug dealer! ‘I’ve got a sandwich! Try
it! Eat it,”’ he said.
Yes, we were getting sick. Yet, slopping and dropping
food all over ourselves, we passed hunks of the massive,
crazy good hero sandwiches back and forth through the car.
These are sandwiches that need no translation. You order up
a dozen or so of these, slice them and line them up, and you
have an incredible Super Bowl feed. If the food is this good,
there is no shame in takeout for a Super Bowl party.
By the time we reached Gold’s contribution to our agenda
— Fred’s, a restaurant with a sports bar feel and walls plas-
tered with photos of customers’ dogs — the car reeked of
grinders. The only thing less appealing than getting out to
eat another meal was staying in and smelling it longer. “Do
you have any place I can lay down?” Gold asked the hostess.
Our table quickly filled with food and wine. Arich Buffalo
chicken macaroni and cheese that had you not already con-
sumed three dinners you wouldn’t be able to stop eating. A
Super Bowl salad (that’s its real name) of beets, goat cheese,
oranges, walnuts and pineapple. A bacon and mushroom
cheeseburger. “I’m sweating,” Fieri complained as he kept
eating. “I’ve got the shakes.”
And then we were done. We kind of stared at each other. Our
mission accomplished, we were all thinking the same thing.
Gold put words to it.
“If I throw up, I’m texting you.”
The next day, at 2:07 p.m. my phone beeped.
“Puked all night. So sick today. Not kidding,” Gold’s text
read. “I’m going to KILL you the next time I see you!!”
I’d say we’re ready for some football.

moms and dads of dead soldiers,” says Berg. “And I was at
a screening where there were 500 active members of spe-
cial operations, including Admiral (William) McRaven.
And those are different. Because when those lights come
up, those people are going to look you in the eye.”
Over the years, SEALs have been played by the likes of
Bruce Willis, Steven Seagal and Demi Moore, and been a
mainstay in video games (“Call of Duty,” “Metal Gear
Solid”). But the movies, often in close consultation with
the military, have come a long way since 1990’s “Navy
SEALs,” with Charlie Sheen.
2012’s “Act of Valor” was acted out by active-duty
SEALs and used live-ammo sequences to portray a fiction-
al covert mission. Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty”
dramatized the most famous SEAL mission, the raid in
Abbottabad that killed Osama bin Laden. The recent docu-
drama “Captain Phillips” recreated the rescue of the kid-
napped mariner by SEAL snipers, with Tom Hanks’ most-
moving scene improvised with a real-life Naval officer.
Such productions, though, have given rise to questions
of accuracy and charges of propaganda.
U.S. senators, including Dianne Feinstein and John
McCain, claimed that too much information was shared
with the filmmakers of “Zero Dark Thirty,” and many crit-
icized the film for suggesting torture aided the hunt for
bin Laden. “Captain Phillips” showed only a handful of
the 19 shots that were fired on the three Somali pirates,
and didn’t mention the $30,000 that went missing in the
aftermath. Retired Army lieutenant general James B.
Vaught argued that “Act of Valor” revealed too much about
tactics: “Get the hell out of the media!” he implored.
But the military sees in the movies a chance to shape its
image and insure some degree of authenticity in depic-
tions of its service men and women. “Lone Survivor” has
largely drawn praise as a brutal ode to Navy SEALs and a
faithful depiction of the moral confusion of combat.
“For films like ‘Black Hawk Down’ and ‘Lone Survivor, ’
the commonality is the notion that this is an important
opportunity to set the record straight or at least to portray
things as they believe they happened,” says Philip Strub,
head of the Defense Department’s Film and Television
Liaison Office.
It can make for a thorny mix of fictionalization, artist
license and classification issues. Berg consulted frequent-
ly with military liaisons and the Navy Office of
Information while writing the script.
“I read the after-action reports,” says Berg. “I looked at
the autopsies. I went to Iraq. I met all these guys. We just
followed the blue print that Luttrell laid out in his book.
We never set out to do something non-Hollywood or
Hollywood. We just literally told the story. ”
Says Wahlberg: “Everybody fell in line with what the
goals were, what the agenda was and how high the stan-
dard was set by not only the SEAL team guys but their fam-
ilies. It was a lot of pressure, but everybody took a lot of
pride in the fact that we were taking part in this thing.”
When the film, which expands nationally in theaters
Friday, premiered at the AFI Festival in November,
Wahlberg made emotional comments about actors who
brag about military training for a movie.
“I was really talking about myself, because I’ve been
guilty of it many times, talking about how hard I had to
work,” says Wahlberg. “It’s nothing compared to what
they do.”
But Luttrell emerged from “Lone Survivor” with admira-
tion for Berg and Wahlberg: “It’s all relative,” he says.
“What I do for a living and what he does for a living is
exactly the same. We both wake up in the morning, put
out as hard as we can and then go to bed at night, hoping
to see the next day. ”
“They took this under their wing and they worked with
it and brought it to life from the pages in the book, from
the blood on the mountain.”

“This is so much better than the first
budget I looked at three years ago,”
said Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-
Menlo Park, who lauded the budget’s
“fiscal responsibility. ”
Fellow legislator state Sen. Jerry
Hill, D-San Mateo, also called the mes-
sage a “very practical election year
budget that appears to be responsible
at first blush.”
Closer to home, San Mateo County
Manager John Maltbie thinks the pro-
posed budget details won’t greatly
change any of the existing health care
and social services program but also
knows there may be a lot of changing
between now and the governor’s May
budget revision.
“I don’t say that I don’t look at it but
sort of smile and then say we’ll see in
May,” Maltbie said.
The state’s big budget upheavals
happened last year with the taking of
the health realignment funds in
response to the Affordable Care Act and
the formula change in local school
funding, Maltbie said.
“It certainly looks like a status quo
budget right now,” said Iliana Douglas,
director of the Human Services Agency.
The state budget proposal does call
for a reinstatement of 5 percent to wel-
fare grants. Douglas said HSA wel-
comes the restoration for its 2,300
families on CalWorks public assis-
tance but with the caveat that it still
falls short.
“It will certainly help our families
but, with the cost of living in our coun-
t y, it is still challenging for people,”
she said.
HSA, like all affected county depart-
ments, is digesting the budget details
and expects to have more answers
about potential impacts next week.
The courts are also taking a cautious
approach to the proposed budget which
calls for a $100 million partial restora-
tion to the state trial courts. John
Fitton, San Mateo County Court execu-
tive officer, said the funding is appreci-
ated but still only a fraction of what the
judicial branch has lost through more
than one billion dollars in cuts dating
back to 2008.
“Justice remains at risk — particular-
ly for those who are most vulnerable,”
Fitton wrote in an email to the Daily
In San Mateo County, these cuts have
meant a 34 percent reduction in work-
force and reduced service hours along
with laying off three commissioners
and closing four courtrooms, he said.
Although Maltbie doesn’t see much
change for San Mateo County in this
preliminary budget, he said there may
be some benefit to open space and
Sheriff Greg Munks also sees posi-
tives in Brown’s approach to reduce
prison overcrowding and assistance for
counties housing former state inmates
now in local control because of
The county, which has previously
lost out on millions in state jail con-
struction funds, won’t likely benefit
from a proposed new round of $500
million in awards because the facility
is underway, Munks said.
However, he is pleased the governor
is moving forward with plans to let
inmates sentenced to more than 10
years in county jails serve the time in
state prison. The shift is predicated on
the state being able to comply with the
federal judges’ prison crowding reduc-
tion order.
The county only has a couple such
inmates but the realignment popula-
tion as a whole has led to an increase in
jail assaults and conversion of jail
space for segregation, Munks said.
“I’m pleased with his acknowledg-
ment and recognition of the burden that
counties are feeling as a result of
realignment,” Munks said.
Munks added it may not be enough
and the discussion may need to go far-
The budget proposal also calls for
increased money to court security
which will go to the Sheriff’s Office.
“All in all, I think he is following up
on his work to continue to work with us
on these real issues,” Munks said.
The investment in public schools,
especially the increase of more than
$600 per student and college tuition
freezes, particularly excited state Sen.
Leland Yee, D-San Francisco/San
Mateo. State Sen. Mark Leno, D-San
Francisco, similarly appreciated the
budget but said Brown’s plan to pay
down debt and build reserves but also
be augmented by what he called a “bal-
anced, long-term plan for recovery. ”
Not every aspect of the budget pro-
posal drew praise.
Gordon said he was concerned about
the plan to allocate money from the
cap and trade program to high-speed
rail. Gordon wants the revenue immedi-
ately used on shovel-ready projects to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Gordon, who belongs to the budget
subcommittee on transportation and
resources, expects there to be “a very
thorough discussion” on the plan.
Like Gordon, Hill and the others also
say that yesterday’s budget message is
just the beginning.
“It’s a good first start,” Hill said.
“Now we can improve upon it.”

unfunded liabilities, bond debt and bor-
rowing that is estimated at $355 bil-
His somewhat cautious approach will
run afoul of some of his fellow
Democrats in the Legislature, many of
whom already are clamoring for higher
spending on pet programs.
“When you’re at this level of long-
term liability, it isn’t time to just
embark on a raft of new initiatives,”
Brown said in announcing details of
his budget during a Capitol news con-
The news conference was moved up a
day after copies of his budget proposal
were leaked to media outlets late
Wednesday. He was scheduled to pro-
mote his budget plan later Thursday in
San Diego and Los Angeles.
The governor’s budget proposal for
the 2014-15 fiscal year dedicates $11
billion to paying down debts and lia-
bilities, including $6 billion in pay-
ments that had been deferred to schools
and nearly $4 billion to pay down the
so-called economic recovery bonds left
over from the administration of Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger.
It does not address long-term liabili-
ties in the state’s teacher retirement
fund, which will require billions of dol-
lars extra a year to make solvent.
Instead, Brown said he wants to create a
plan for long-term solvency this year.
The teachers’ pension fund is estimated
to be $80 billion in the red.
The record $106.8 billion general
fund exceeds the spending level of just
before the recession by more than $3
billion and is a nearly 9 percent
increase over spending in the current
fiscal year.
The governor also sets aside $1.6
billion for a rainy-day fund to protect
against future downturns, saying “wis-
dom and prudence should be the order of
the day. ”
California’s financial turnaround is
due in large part to temporary increases
in the state sales tax and income taxes
for the wealthy that were approved by
voters in 2012. Combined, those tax
increases are expected to generate
about $6 billion a year.
The state also has been adding jobs
at one of the fastest rates in the nation
since the recovery from the recession
began, led by the technology sector.
The state’s legislative analyst fore-
casts that California will have a $3.2
billion operating surplus by the end of
the fiscal year, one that is expected to
approach $10 billion within three
Brown has warned against spending
all the surplus on new programs or to
restore services cut during the reces-
sion, saying the state needs to prepare
for future recessions and get control of
its debts.
“Now some people would say,
because we have this little black mark
there, that we should go on a spending
binge,” he said, pointing to a chart
showing this year’s surplus. “I don’t
agree with that. We see the lessons in
history. ”
That approach appeals to minority
Republicans, who generally praised
the budget while warning against
spending pressure from Democratic
lawmakers in the months ahead.
“I like where it’s at,” said Assembly
Minority Leader Connie Conway, R-
Tulare. “My fear is that it’s not going
to stay as constrained as it is right
now. ”
The governor’s cautionary approach
is caused in part by the source of the
state’s revenue. His budget assumes
about $4 billion in capital gains tax
revenue, driven largely by the soaring
stock market. But it also acknowledges
that such income is highly volatile and
will be short-lived.
Brown’s tax increases under
Proposition 30 will begin expiring in
a few years: The state sales tax hike
will last four years and the higher
income taxes on those making more
than $250,000 a year will last seven
Yet pressure for more spending
already is coming from Democrats who
control the Legislature.
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell
Steinberg, D-Sacramento, has said at
least one-third of the surplus should go
to restoring programs that experienced
spending cuts, and he is advocating a
new statewide program that would pro-
vide pre-kindergarten for all 4-year-
Sen. Noreen Evans, D-Santa Rosa,
urged restored funding for welfare and
other programs that affect women and
The Legislature will debate Brown’s
proposal in the coming months and
faces a June 15 deadline to pass its own
spending plan.
Despite Brown’s call for budgetary
prudence, the 8.5 percent increase in
general fund spending over the current
fiscal year includes additional money
for nearly every area of state govern-
ment. That includes $45.2 billion for
K-12 schools, an increase of nearly $4
billion from the current fiscal year.
The University of California,
California State University and com-
munity college systems will receive a
total of $1.1 billion. About half the
money would go to community col-
leges, which are expected to grow rap-
idly in the next few years.
In its budget document, the adminis-
tration said the extra higher education
spending should be accompanied by
reforms that improve student success
and make the institutions more effi-
The budget also proposes $815 mil-
lion for critical deferred maintenance in
state parks, highways, schools, courts
and other state facilities, and $619 mil-
lion to expand water storage capacity,
improve drinking water supplies and
increase flood protection.
One of the Republicans who will
challenge Brown this year if he decides
to seek re-election said Brown’s budget
still proposes too much spending,
saves too little in reserves and does not
do enough to create tax incentives that
will keep businesses in California.
“We’re seeing people literally get a
U-haul and leave California, and he’s
spending money like it’s 1999,” said
Assembly Tim Donnelly, who lives in
the San Bernardino Mountain commu-
nity of Twin Peaks.

should motivate us to take action now
and get a flu shot to prevent the most
serious effects of the flu.”
San Mateo County has seen a rise in
flu activity this year as compared to the
same time last year, Thaw said. There
has also been an increase in otherwise
healthy people contracting and dying
due to the H1N1 virus, according to
public health officials.
Flu season is typically occurs late
January through March and we are still
two weeks away from hitting the peak,
Thaw said. The vaccine takes about
two weeks before a person is fully pro-
tected so it’s important to get vacci-
nated as soon as possible, Thaw said.
“We can’t stress enough about the
importance that the flu is a preventable
disease and the best defense against
the flu is to get vaccinated,” Thaw said.
“And especially this year with the
H1N1 being the strain which does
affect healthy people and young peo-

Brown’s $154.9 billion budget proposal
includes almost $61.6 billion for K-12
schools. That’s an increase of $14.4 billion
in education spending from the 2011-12 fis-
cal year and an increase of $6.3 billion over
the 2013 budget level. For K-12 schools,
funding levels would increase by $3,410 per
student through 2017-18, including an
increase of more than $2,188 per student in
2014-15 over 2011-12 levels, according to
the proposed budget.
Reflecting the recent significant increases
in Proposition 98 funding, total per pupil
expenditures from all sources are projected
to be $11,985 in 2013-14 and $12,833 in
2014-15, including funds provided for prior
year settle-up obligations. Ongoing K-12
Proposition 98 per pupil expenditures in
the budget are $9,194 in 2014-15, up from
the $8,469 per pupil provided in 2013-14
and the $7,006 provided in 2011-12.
Other local school officials were not so
pleased with the proposed budget. Philip
Weise, trustee for the South San Francisco
Unified High School District, said the budg-
et will hurt basic aid districts, those which
fund their revenue limit entirely through
property taxes and receive no general pur-
pose state aid.
“It’s going to hurt the district to tune of
$8 million because our district is a basic aid
district and there’s not very many districts
like that in California,” he said. “There’s
been an effort in the state to punish basic aid
districts. One of the ways they do that is
withholding payback to us. It’s very unfair
to the students in our district.”
Ted Lempert, San Mateo County Board of
Education trustee, agreed there are still
places for improvement for funding educa-
tion in the state.
“Additional investment in K-12 is very
needed,” he said. “We still have a ways to go
to be competitive with other states and
unfortunately there’s insufficient funding for
early learning and child care.”
There is an effort in the state Legislature
to make transitional kindergarten available
for all 4-year-olds with Senate Bill 837, the
Kindergarten Readiness Act.
Other school officials agreed with Lempert
about needing an inclusion of early educa-
tion matters in the budget, including Seth
Rosenblatt, trustee for the San Carlos
Elementary School District.
“It’s good news more money is available
for education,” he said. “I appreciate the
devil is in the details and there’s many steps
before it’s finalized. I do hope they include
transitional kindergarten as part of the pro-
Shelley Viviani, lead negotiator for the
San Mateo County Educators Association,
said it looks as though the increase in fund-
ing to schools is going to be relativity sig-
nificant. She still sees the amount of money
going to education in California as deficient
compared to other states.
Meanwhile, the state superintendent of
education was satisfied with the proposed
“This budget builds upon California’s
recommitment to ensuring that every child
graduates with the tools they need to succeed
in the society and economy they will find
outside their classrooms,” Superintendent
Tom Torlakson said in a statement. “Per
pupil spending continues to climb — with
additional funding for the most vulnerable
of our students under the Local Control
Funding Formula. And schools face the
prospect of starting the next school year
with billions of dollars of deferrals finally

Three injured in Amgen
explosion, lab damaged
Three employees were injured in an
explosion and fire that occurred at an
Amgen Inc. laboratory in South San
Francisco Wednesday afternoon, a state
workplace safety agency spokesman said.
California Division of Occupational
Safety and Health spokesman Peter Melton
said safety inspectors were sent to the
biotechnology company building located
at 1120 Veterans Blvd. after the explosion
was reported at about 3:30 p.m.
The incident apparently started when
cl eani ng sol vent s used t o st eri l i ze
equipment caused a chemical reaction
that created a flash fire, South San
Francisco fire officials said.
The building was evacuated and a haz-
ardous materials response deployed but fire
officials later determined that no chemicals
were released into the atmosphere.
Melton said three employees were in the
lab when the explosion happened and two
of the three were taken to a hospital where
they were treated for their injuries and
The third employee only suffered a bruise
to her leg, he said.
The explosion and a subsequent fire
caused extensive damage to the lab, includ-
ing blowing out the windows, Melton said.
Local brief
Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget for the coming
fiscal year includes several proposals to help
comply with a federal court order requiring
the state to reduce prison overcrowding by
mid-April to improve medical and mental
health care for inmates.
It also assists counties that are increasing-
ly handling felons who previously would
have been housed in state prisons.
The Brown administration will take steps
immediately that lead to the earlier release of
some inmates, as previously ordered by the
federal judges. Those steps include expand-
ing the existing medical parole program that
in the last three years has allowed for the
parole of 56 medically incapacitated
inmates; considering parole for inmates age
60 or older who have served at least 25 years
in prison; and increasing good-time credits
for non-violent second-strike offenders.
Second-strikers previously could earn up to
20 percent off their sentences, but in the
future could be released after serving two-
thirds of their sentences.
The Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation projects that the three
changes might result in the earlier release of
nearly 1,600 inmates by April 2016: 85 eld-
erly inmates; 100 incapacitated inmates; and
1,400 second-strikers.
On Thursday, he said his administration is
still asking for a two-year extension of the
April 18 deadline to allow the state to add
more prison cells and hospital beds. If the
court declines, the governor said he is pre-
pared to send another 4,000 inmates to pri-
vate prisons out of state.
“We think we can get the extension. And if
we don’t, then we’ll do the best we can to
make sure that we have the capacity,” he
Other prison-related aspects of the
budget proposal released Thursday:
• Frees up $81 million for rehabilitation
programs that otherwise would be spent to
house inmates, if the federal judges grant the
two-year extension to meet a court-ordered
prison population cap.
• Spends $8.3 million to redesign the 600-
bed Northern California Reentry Facility in
Stockton, although it will take more than
two years to ready the facility to house male
• Adds $14 million to fight the smuggling
of drugs and other contraband, including
• Allocates nearly $65 million for the
Department of State Hospitals to help the
agency deal with a more violent mentally ill
population that increasingly comes from the
criminal justice system. AU.S. District judge
last year ordered increased federal oversight
after finding problems with the department’s
treatment of mentally ill inmates.
• Gives counties $500 million for new jail
space, on top of $500 million that is now
being distributed through a competitive
grant program. The proposal requires that
counties demonstrate they are taking steps
to lower their jail populations by freeing
more suspects who are awaiting trial.
• Inmates sentenced to more than 10 years
in county jails under the state’s two-year-old
criminal justice realignment law would again
serve their time in state prisons. That would
increase the prison population by a project-
ed 300 inmates, felons that sheriffs have said
they are not equipped to handle. The shift
would come only if the state is able to com-
ply with federal judges’ prison crowding
reduction order.
• Reduces the cost to counties to send local
inmates to state-run firefighting camps.
Counties have said the current $46 daily rate
is too costly. Counties would pay $10 a day
for each inmate at a firefighting camp, and
$81 each day the inmates are being trained.
• Requires that all felony sentences served
in county jails be split between jail time and
mandatory supervision, unless a judge con-
cludes that a split sentence is not in the
interest of justice.
