WASHINGTON — Consumers will spend
more. Government will cut less. Businesses
will invest more. And more companies will
Add it all up, and you can see why expec-
tations are rising that 2014 will be the best
year for the U.S. economy since the reces-
sion ended 4 1/2 years ago. That’s why the
Federal Reserve is pressing ahead with a
plan to scale back its economic stimulus.
The optimists got a boost Thursday from
a government report that showed consumers
fueled solid economic growth in the final
quarter of 2013. The report lifted hopes that
the economy will be able to withstand tur-
moil in emerging economies, a pullback in
the Fed’s stimulus and mounting risks to the
U.S. stock market over the next 12 months.
Americans struggling with long-term
unemployment and stagnant pay might not
get relief anytime soon. And areas such as
manufacturing, construction and home sales
remain far from full health. Still, the out-
look for the economy as a whole brightened
after the government said growth reached a
3.2 percent annual rate last quarter on the
strength of the strongest consumer spend-
ing in three years.
“The economy showed real signs of
momentum at the end of 2013,” said Diane
Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow
Financial. “We are better positioned for
decent growth for 2014 than we were a year

Metal yard
fire called
Officials think second Redwood
City blaze was deliberately set
Police and fire investigators agree that a blaze at a metal
recycling facility in Redwood City last month appears to
have been deliberately set, but they have no suspects, a
police lieutenant said Thursday.
The fire was reported at about 1 a.m. Dec. 17 at the Sims
Metal Management plant at 699 Seaport Blvd. in the city’s
industrial sector. It was the second fire at the facility within
five weeks.
An on-duty employee at the facility reported the fire after
hearing a loud explosion and seeing the fire ignite in a
stockpile of metal recyclables at the plant, according to
police Lt. Sean Hart.
After continuing with the month-long investigation, city
officials are now calling the two-alarm fire suspicious based
on the contents of the stockpile, Hart said.

The Millbrae Rotary Club puts on an annual event that features the traditional Chinese lion dance.
By Angela Swartz
Arts and crafts, musical performanc-
es, exhibitions and other festivities

weeks for the Lunar New Year to cele-
brate the year of the horse.
For example, the San Mateo County
History Museum is hosting its fourth
annual celebration of the holiday with
free performances and activities 11
a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 8 in its museum
and Courthouse Square in Redwood
City. Children can make traditional red
envelopes, write lucky symbols in
Chinese calligraphy, make paper
lanterns and play folkloric games.
“There are several reasons the public

Chinese zodiac, including a horse sta-
tion in which one can learn simple

one’s zodiac sign at the snake station.
During the day, the public will be
invited to visit all of the museum’s
exhibit galleries, including “Land of
Opportunity: The Immigrant
Experience in San Mateo County, ”
which has exhibits related to Asian-
American history on the Peninsula.
In Millbrae, the Rotary Club will

Charter school
gets four classrooms
Sequoia High School officials
approved for four new classrooms for
a high school focusing on Eastern-
Asian studies the week of Jan. 31,
2009. Wednesday night.
The proposed 400-student charter
school within the Sequoia
Union High School
District named Everest
was still waiting for
state approval. The
Sequoia Board of Trustees approved
offering four classrooms, one of
which will be outfitted for science
needs, to house the potential fresh-
man class at 763 Green St. in East
Palo Alto. Overall, the district
approved a cost not to exceed $4 mil-
lion to come from bond funds.
County budget grim
The county’s budget was reported to
be hampered by dropping property
taxes, state revenue deferrals and the
Lehman Brothers bankruptcy before
even factoring in the hits expected
from the proposed state budget, it was
reported the week of Jan. 31, 2009.
The county’s ledger book was a
series of shortfalls adding up to $18
million from the general fund and $5
million from non-general funds, the
Board of Supervisors heard that week
during the mid-year budget update.
The situation is a continuation of the
grim budget news delivered December
and the forecast based on state pro-
posals wasn’t looking up.
The governor’s proposed budget
was estimated by county officials to
leech nearly $100 million from San
Mateo County through
cuts and withholdings.
The county’s structural
deficit, a primary target
of county officials bent
on eliminating the figure,
was estimated to hit $43 million by
County owes
Feds money for inmates
The San Mateo County’s Sheriff
Office was to repay the U.S.
Department of Justice more than $1.5
million erroneously received in reim-
bursement for federal defendants
detained and prosecuted by local
authorities, it was reported the week
of Jan. 31, 2009.
San Mateo County submitted more
than one thousand requests between
2004 and 2007 for reimbursement
through the Southwest Border
Prosecution Initiative on the wrong
guidelines of a consultant. The same
consultant steered four other Northern
California jurisdictions wrong,
including San Francisco whose $5.2
million repayment made news in
October and led Sheriff Greg Munks
to investigate if San Mateo County
might have a similar problem.
An audit showed that of the 1,076
cases submitted by San Mateo
County, most did not meet the one of
the three requirements that the mat-
ters be federally initiated.
Approximately $7,000 of
the funds were justified,
according to the
Department of Justice.
Fears cause stumble
Wall Street ended its worst January
ever by stumbling again over the
banking system and the economy the
week of Jan. 31, 2009.
The major indexes all fell sharply
for the second straight day, leaving
the Dow Jones industrial average and
Standard & Poor’s 500 index with
record percentage drops for January
— 8.84 percent and 8.57 percent,
respectively. Some market watchers
believed that’s a bad omen for the rest
of the year, as the market usually ends
a year down after having fallen in

Call it a star sign, of sorts.
The tenants of 1 Circle Star Way, a coun-
ty-owned office building in San Carlos, are
seeking permission to install two lit signs
facing the freeway.
The request is actually made by sign com-
pany Ad Art Incorporated which Monday
night will ask the San Carlos Planning
Commission to approve the two wall-
mounted signs for Sprint and SoftBank.
The proposed signs are internally lit indi-
vidual channel letters bearing the SoftBank
logo on the southern building side and the
Sprint logo to the north. The proposed
Sprint sign is roughly 5 feet and 7.62 inch-
es high by 13 feet and 5 inches wide. The
letters will be white acrylic and the logo
yellow. The proposed SoftBank sign is
roughly 6 feet and 1.75 inches high and 27
feet and 4.5 inches wide with white lettering
and logos.
City staff found the signs consistent with
the city’s sign ordinance but its size and
location visible from Highway 101 requires
a design review for approval.
The office building and its twin, 2 Circle
Star Way, are both four stories with parking
and owned by San Mateo County which pur-
chased them in 2011 for $40 million. The
county originally planned to relocate sever-
al departments and 911 dispatch but down-
sized needs and financial concerns led it to
instead rent out the properties. The county
is now also looking at potentially selling
the towers.
SoftBank is a telecom company which
owns a majority of Sprint Nextel.

meets 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3 in Council

Bar patron pleads not guilty to fatal beating
The man accused of beating a fellow Belmont bar patron
to death after exchanging words over the victim’s female
friend last April will stand trial just past
the assault’s one-year anniversary on
charges of murder and causing great bodi-
ly injury.
Joseph Patrick Kaufman, of San
Carlos, pleaded not guilty to all counts in
the death of 48-year-old Barney Hanepen
who perished a few days after being
severely beaten outside the Lariat Tavern
on April 29.
Kaufman, 23, and Hanepen were drink-
ing separately at the bar and, after it
closed at 2:15 a.m., reportedly got into an argument out-
side. Kaufman allegedly punched Hanepen in the face, push-
ing him to the ground and repeatedly kicking him in the
head and torso until the man lost consciousness. Hanepen
suffered broken vertebrae, fractures to his orbital bones,
broken teeth and brain bleeding. Police found him lying in
the street and he remained hospitalized in critical condition
until his death May 2.
After entering his not guilty plea to all charges, Kaufman
was ordered back to court April 8 for a pretrial conference
followed by a May 19 jury trial.
Kaufman is being held without bail.

guilty but was held to answer on all
charges after a preliminary hearing on
the evidence.
Prosecutors say the 55-year-old victim
invited Seith to stay with her for a few
weeks because she knew he was a tran-
sient. On Nov. 27, he allegedly grew angry over what he
perceived to be her lack of appreciation for his housework
and choked and threatened her. She broke free and tried call-
ing 911 but Seith knocked the phone from her hand and
began choking her again, according to the District
Attorney’s Office.
She was reportedly able to free herself a second time and
run for help. South San Francisco police arrested him near-

The county’s mosquito and vector
district is warning county residents to
take precautions against tick bites
after a Belmont resident possibly con-
tracted Lyme disease following a trip
to Water Dog Lake Park.
The risks of exposure are greater in
warmer weather because people venture
outdoors for hiking, camping and
other activities, said Dr. Nayer Zahiri,
laboratory director of the San Mateo
County Mosquito and Vector Control
The district issued its warning
Thursday after the reported Belmont
incident and is also posting warning
signs and information brochures at all
main trailheads and coordinating with
the Belmont Park and Recreation
Department to reduce tick populations.
Ticks are small, insect-like creatures
found in naturally vegetated areas
throughout the county and prefer cool,
moist environments; shaded grasses;
shrubs and leaf litter. They attach to
humans and other animals and feed on
their blood over several days.
Bites from an infected western
black-legged tick, the only tick in
California that transmits Lyme dis-
ease, can lead to human infection.
Early symptoms often include a
spreading rash accompanied by flu-like
symptoms such as fever and body
aches. Tick bites can also cause a vari-
ety of other human illnesses besides
Lyme disease.
To cut down on risk of tick bites, the
district recommends people in tick-
prone areas stay on trails, wear light-
colored long clothing so ticks can be
easily spotted, use a repellent and
inspect oneself frequently.
Belmont residents warned of local Lyme risk
SACRAMENTO — State surveyors
checking California’s snowpack say a
recent storm brought little help, and
that snow levels in the Sierra Nevada
are dangerously low.
California’s Department of Water
Resources on Thursday said the state’s
snowpack was at 12 percent of normal
for this time of winter.
It was more bad news for the drought-
stricken state facing more dry fore-
casts, little mountain snow and dwin-
dling reservoirs.
The northern and central Sierra
snowpack provides about a third of
California’s water supply.
State climatologist Michael
Anderson says only 1.53 inches of
rain was recorded from October
through December, the lowest aggre-
gate total in records dating back to
Officials say 2013 was also state’s
driest calendar year since records start-
ed being kept.

LOS ANGELES — Gov. Jerry
Brown provided some very practi-
cal guidance for Californians amid
a deepening drought: Take shorter
showers, turn off the water while
brushing teeth, and “don’t flush
more than you have to.”
“Make no mistake, this drought
is a big wakeup call,” Brown said
Thursday in downtown Los
Angeles before meeting with local
water district officials. “Hopefully
it’s going to rain. If it doesn’t ,
we’re going to have to act in a
very strenuous way in every part
of the state to get through.”
The governor’s pragmatic plea
came as wet weather finally moved
through northern portions of the
state, which has been in an
extraordinary dry period during
what is normally the time for rain
and snow.
But the stingy storm system was
squeezing out only dribs and drabs
of moisture in most areas. The
National Weather Service office in
San Francisco reported rainfall
amounts since Wednesday night
generally were a few hundredths to
a tenth of an inch.
“Needless to say the rain is a
welcome sight but does little for
drought relief,” the weather serv-
ice wrote.
Snow — heavy in places — was
falling in the Sierra Nevada just in
time for the latest measurement of
snow depth. The peaks of the tow-
ering range normally store a huge
amount of the state’s water supply
in the form of snowpack, but sur-
veyors said Thursday the snow
water equivalent was just 12 per-
cent of normal. The brown peaks
were visible in satellite photos
from space.
Brown, who declared a drought
emergency Jan. 17, met behind
closed doors with water agency
officials serving the vast popula-
tion of Southern California, where
banked supplies are keeping crisis
at bay for the time being, but the
future is being eyed with caution.
The situation, however, is not
uniform throughout California,
where 38 million residents share
the water supply with a vast
farming industry and a host of
sensitive environments such as
rivers where low flows can
threaten fisheries.
State officials have said 17 rural
communities are in danger of a
severe water shortage within four
Brown said water conservation
may be voluntary now, but “every
day this drought goes on, we’re
going to have to tighten the
screws on what people are doing.”
Brown acknowledged there is a
geographic divide when it comes
to water politics.
“I’m going to do my best to
unite this state. Water is some-
thing that we share, and we have a
common interest in maximizing
the economic well-being of the
state. And one does that by using
water wisely,” he said.
The Metropolitan Water District
of Southern California said it’s
looking for ways to help water
agencies to the north. During the
state’s worst drought, in 1977, the
district had a surplus in its reser-
voir in Northern California that it
was able to transfer to Marin
County. But that’s not the case
this time around.
The district said decades of
aggressive water conservation and
other measures have prevented a
water crisis in Southern
California. It’s urging residents to
voluntarily cut water use and will
ask that its board approve rebates
for water conservation.
The district’s general manager,
Jeffrey Kightlinger, said he does-
n’t expect to impose mandatory
water cutbacks this year.
“We’re pretty prepared for this
drought. We have ample storage.
We are in pretty sound shape.”
But he acknowledged there are
parts of the state where the situa-
tion is different.
“Since this is a one-state issue,
we’re going to look for how best
we can help the rest of the state
while retaining our reliability
here,” he said.

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)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

SACRAMENTO — The fight over affir-
mative action in California’s higher educa-
tion system is coming back.
Under a proposed constitutional amend-
ment that passed the Senate on Thursday,
voters would reconsider affirmative action
programs at the University of California
and California State University systems
on the November ballot. SCA5 would
remove certain prohibitions in place since
1996, when voters approved Proposition
That initiative made California the first
state to ban the use of race and ethnicity in
public university admissions, as well as
state hiring and contracting.
The amendment under consideration in
the Legislature would delete provisions
in Proposition 209 that prohibit the
state from giving preferential treatment
in public education to individuals and
groups based on race, sex, color, ethnic-
ity or national origin.
“Ablanket prohibition on consideration
of race was a mistake in 1996, and we are
still suffering the consequences from that
initiative today,” said Sen. Ed Hernandez,
D-Covina, who carried the measure. “You
cannot address inequality by refusing to
acknowledge it.”
Bill would require
lock-boxes for drop-off ballots
SACRAMENTO — The state Senate has
approved a bill that would require counties
to set up secured lock-
boxes if they choose to
let voters drop off their
vote-by-mail ballots at
locations other than
polling stations.
SB240 by Democratic
Sen. Leland Yee of San
Francisco passed on a 24-
9 vote Thursday.
Yee says with about
half of California voters registered to
receive their ballots by mail, many counties
have set up drop boxes for voters to hand in
their ballots without mailing them in.
Initiatives would have
to disclose actors in ads
SACRAMENTO — A bill that has passed
the state Assembly would require political
campaigns to disclose when they hire actors
to play professionals in campaign ads.
Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano
of San Francisco says the state needs to
update its campaign regulations to “ensure
that voters are not misled” into thinking
that people being paid to appear in political
ads are real doctors, nurses or engineers.
Bill would continue
care for long-term treatment

the state Assembly would allow patients
who lose their individual health insurance
under the Affordable Care Act to continue
seeing a provider who is treating them for
specific conditions such as cancer or preg-

chairmanship of the influential

while he awaits sentencing March 12,
Steinberg said.
‘Ghost guns’ face
rules under California bill
SACRAMENTO — The state Senate
approved a bill Thursday that would require
people who assemble homemade guns to
register the weapons and acquire serial num-
bers before they could legally own them.
SB808 by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los
Angeles, is intended to combat the spread
of undetectable guns that can fall into the
hands of people who are legally barred from
owning firearms under state and federal
Bill would limit personal

SACRAMENTO — Legislation that
passed the state Senate on Thursday would
restrict online retailers in the amount and
type of personal information they could

it once it is no longer needed to guard
against fraud.
Critics said the bill’s proposed changes
could have the opposite effect by hamper-
ing fraud-prevention efforts.

clean air to health care, will retire at the

from policy to good government and
Wendy Greuel, former Los Angeles city controller, told
KPCC radio on Thursday that she would run for Waxman’s seat.
Another possible contender is Sandra Fluke, the former
Georgetown University law student who testified to congres-
sional Democrats that she wanted her college health plan to

U.S. prosecutors seek

ly carrying out a terrorist attack calculated
to cause maximum carnage.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s deci-
sion to press for Tsarnaev’s execution was
widely expected. The twin blasts last April
killed three people and wounded more than
260, and over half the 30 federal charges
against Tsarnaev — including using a

FLORENCE, Italy — More than two years after Amanda
Knox returned to the U.S. apparently home free, an Italian
court Thursday reinstated her murder con-
viction in the stabbing of her roommate
and increased her sentence to 28 1/2
years in prison, raising the specter of a
long extradition fight .
Knox, 26, received word in her home-
town of Seattle. The former American
exchange student said she was “fright-
ened and saddened by the unjust verdict”
and blamed “overzealous and intransi-
gent prosecution,” “narrow-minded
investigation” and coercive interrogation techniques.
“This has gotten out of hand,” Knox said in a statement.
“Having been found innocent before, I expected better from
the Italian justice system.”

WASHINGTON — Even proponents of
President Barack Obama’s new retirement
savings program readily concede it won’t
be a cure-all for a nation of people who
are saving far too little for their golden
years. Many Americans won’t be able to
participate initially, and those who do
may find the benefits are modest.
Yet the Obama administration is hoping
that the savings program — dubbed
“myRA,” for “my IRA” — will serve as a
call to action, spurring Congress to take
more sweeping steps to shore up retire-
ment security as company pensions
become a thing of the past. Given a pres-
idential boost, like-minded lawmakers are
already pushing new legislation to vastly
expand the number of Americans who put
away cash for retirement.
“This is a small first step,” said Nancy
LeaMond, AARP’s executive vice presi-
dent. “We think it is starting to generate a
debate. Our hope is there can be action.”
Aiming to help the roughly half of
Americans with no retirement plan at work,
Obama announced in his State of the Union
speech Tuesday that the Treasury would cre-
ate new “starter” savings accounts. The pro-
gram is geared toward low- and middle-
income Americans who lack the upfront
investment that many commercial IRAs
require. Starting with as little as $25, savers
could invest a little each month in Treasury
bonds and then convert the accounts into
traditional IRAs once the savings grow.
The idea is actually contained in a broader
retirement proposal that Obama has been
asking Congress to take up for years in his
annual budget request. Obama wants all
workers to be automatically enrolled in
IRAs unless they specifically opt out. Under
one scenario, monthly paycheck deductions
would be invested in bonds unless workers
choose another option. But Congress has-
n’t acted on the proposal. So Obama is carv-
ing out the part he can accomplish without
Congress and hoping that by raising the
issue, lawmakers will feel pressure to act and
the remaining pieces will fall into place.
Obama hopes myRAwill be first step on retirement

Anti-government protesters sit at an open fire as temperatures reach minus 4 degrees
Fahrenheit at a barricade near Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine.
By Jim Heintz and Maria Danilova
KIEV, Ukraine — Amid the deepest tur-
moil since the Orange Revolution,
President Viktor Yanukovych’s announce-
ment Thursday that he was taking indefinite
sick leave prompted a guessing game
among Ukrainians about what was happen-
ing to their country.
Debate raged on whether he was just sick
or whether he was leaving the limelight in
preparation for something, possibly either
cracking down or stepping down.
Yanukovych has faced two months of
major protests that sometimes paralyze cen-
tral Kiev and have spread to other cities. The
protests started after he backed out of a
long-awaited agreement to deepen ties with
the European Union in favor of Russia, but
quickly came to encompass a wide array of
discontent over corruption, heavy-handed
police and dubious courts.
The official line is that the 63-year-old
Yanukovych has an acute respiratory illness
and a high fever.
But the opposition isn’t buying it. Some
say he is looking for an excuse to avoid fur-
ther discussions with opposition leaders,
which have done nothing
to resolve the tensions.
Vitali Klitschko, a lead-
ing opposition figure, has
a more ominous theory —
the president could be pre-
tending to take himself
out of action in prepara-
tion for imposing a state
of emergency. That has
been a persistent worry of
the opposition since vio-
lent clashes two weeks ago killed three pro-
“I remember from the Soviet Union it’s a
bad sign — a bad sign because always if
some Soviet Union leaders have to make an
unpopular decision, they go to the hospi-
tal,” Klitschko said.
Yanukovych’s press office says the presi-
dent is still in charge of the country, but
there was no indication of how long he
might be on leave or how much work he
would be able to do.
He isn’t known to have serious health
problems, although his office says he has
taken sick leave twice before — once for a
knee problem and the other time also for a
respiratory illness.

Letters to the editor
Growth concerns
The state of California is forcing cities
like Belmont and other communities as
well to zone land for thousands of addition-
al housing units in the next few years.
Meanwhile, Gov. Jerry Brown has just
declared that we are in a drought.
Does anyone see a contradiction in this?
If California doesn’t have enough water for
its existing population of 38 million, what
will future droughts be like if California
grows by 20 million to 30 million, as cur-
rently planned?
The Belmont City Council, and other
city councils in our neighboring counties,
should consider this the next time they deal
with the Association of Bay Area
Governments and the state complaining
that our “housing element” doesn’t add
enough new residents.
There is talk of building more dams and
desalination plants, but these are extreme
and expensive solutions mainly needed to
enable the state’s future growth. Besides,
the taxpayers will be saddled with more
taxes to support such measures. At our cur-
rent population level, we can get by with
some temporary conservation measures.
Dams and desalination plants are very
expensive, not to mention eco-unfriendly.
I don’t want to pay higher water fees and
hurt the environment just so that land
developers, in league with ABAG, state
planners, real estate lobbyists and con-
struction unions can make more money
while overcrowding our communities.
I’m not talking about new single hous-
ing units or home remodeling expansions
but the massive stack and pack multi-sto-
ries that have and are going up in our San

The future of California
Assemblymen Phil Ting and Kevin
Mullin hosted a coffee house meeting for
people in South San Francisco to discuss
their concerns about the future of our state.
I am not a resident of South San
Francisco but do have serious concerns for
our state due to global warming. We must
stop burning fossil fuels and shut down our
nuclear power plants. We must stop bring-
ing in the dirty tar sands oil and stop the
fracking for natural gas another fossil fuel.
We don’t need more oil; we need less.
Germany and Japan have committed to get-
ting off fossil fuels by making regulations
that all homes are equipped with two-way
electric meters: measuring the intake of the
electricity and measuring the output if the
homeowners have solar panels. These gov-
ernments are loaning the home owners the
money to buy the panels and insisting that
the power companies buy the power the
home owners send out on the grid.
The best a home owner now can do with
PG&E is to get to zero, but if paid for the
power they put out on to the grid they
would have enough to pay for the panels
and some money in their pockets to spend.

Transitional kindergarten
Let me get this straight, transitional
kindergarten (TK) is a new grade level
designed for children with September
through December birthdays. Basically,
kindergarten teachers felt these children
were socially “young” and had a hard time
adjusting to school, or behaving. Because
of this, children born between those
months are placed into a TK classroom at a
different school (not in own neighbor-
hood) until the next year. At that time, they
transfer back to their neighborhood school
for another year of kindergarten.
Even though kindergarten is not required
in California, my daughter, Grace, will
have to endure two years of kindergarten
because her birth date is one month after
the new Sept. 1 cutoff date. Despite the fact
that she knows her letters and sounds, can
count from 1 to 30, and is already reading,
she will need to attend two years of kinder-
garten. Does she really need an extra year
of a non-required grade level? My son has
an October birthday as well, but he entered
school before this new law took effect. He
is 7, in second-grade, and is accused by
teachers of acting “young.” Yet he is
among the top three students in his class
and is advanced in math and reading. He is
currently being tested to enroll into a more
academic, high-achieving school.
Transitional kindergarten contradicts its
own purpose. It is supposed to give the
“young” children time to mature. However,
the only result of transitional kindergarten
is making them the oldest in their class
rather than the youngest. For instance,
Grace will turn 6 a month after kindergarten
starts, yet the age to enter kindergarten is
5. Thus, she will be older than most of the
students in her class. What’s next? The
state will have to make another new law
and program for these kids with spring
birthdays because now they are too
“young” and immature. When does it end?
It doesn’t make sense.

The value
of outreach
ommunity outreach and input when
it comes to government priorities
is nothing new. Some state and
county legislators constantly have commu-
nity events to gauge constituent interest.
Among a few are “Java with Jerry” events for
state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, and
“Donuts with Don” events for San Mateo
County Supervisor Don Horsley. The events
give constituents a chance to weigh in on
certain issues and
share ideas.
Two San Mateo
councilmen are tak-
ing their queue from
such events and
have organized
informal “meet-and-
greets” to get new
ideas and gauge the
temperature of resi-
dents. Councilman
David Lim recently
held a “San Mateo
City Council:
Unplugged” event
to get a better sense of what issues matter to
average residents and Mayor Robert Ross
had a coffee event with Interim City Manager
Larry Patterson with the same goal. Ross, as
mayor, sees having such events quarterly but
is still working out the details.
Both Lim’s and Ross’ events were at a
good time, however, as the City Council is
about to have its annual goal-setting session
Feb. 10. Those sessions typically give the
council and staff a chance to see what they
accomplished, and what is left on their plate
in the new year. It also affords an opportuni-
ty for members of the council to see if there
is initial support for their pet projects and to
identify and prioritize the community’s
wants and needs.
For Lim, he heard much discussion about
water conservation, overall sustainability,
the ongoing issue with oversize vehicles on
streets and the overall state of the city’s
streets. He also said he was surprised about
the level of support for some sort of bond
measure that would specifically go toward
street repairs. That may be eased by a push
by some in the state Legislature for a lower-
ing of the threshold for such measures from
two-thirds to 55 percent. But that is by no
means a done deal. It is, after all, being dis-
cussed in Sacramento.
As far as water conservation, Lim said
there could be a number of ways the city can
help whether it be using recycled water for
landscaping or rewarding home owners for
low usage. Lim said he looks forward to
bringing the residents’ ideas to the goal-set-
ting session and seeing how the city’s staff
and council can address it.
Ross reports a level of concern about den-
sity near transportation with the amount of
housing the city is encouraging and the traf-
fic that comes with it. Finding ways to keep
downtown clean are also a top concern, he
reports. Someone said the downtown is a
large kitchen and, with that, comes some
grease. Ross said some ideas are to partner
more with the Downtown San Mateo
Association and possibly encourage more
cleanup days with assistance from local
youth. There were a lot of ideas about beauti-
fying downtown, including signs for his-
toric buildings, consistent planters and
maybe working on a specific plan for North
B Street, Ross said.
There was also some discussion of the
city’s formation of a sustainability commit-
tee and updating the city’s municipal codes,
Ross reports.
All members of the City Council spend
significant time with constituents through
their regular activities and at council meet-
ings. And some of the best ideas come from
citizens who call or email. However, having
informal meetings in which people can
share ideas, brainstorm and get information
about city business is a good way to make
new connections. You may even see some
ideas come to fruition or find new ways to
channel energy.

NEWYORK — Facebook’s stock is soar-
ing after the social networking company
reported stronger-than-expected results for
the fourth quarter, fueled by strong mobile
advertising revenue.
Facebook Inc., which turns 10 next week,
said Wednesday that more than half of its
advertising revenue now comes from
mobile. That’s a big milestone considering
it only started showing mobile ads in 2012.
Investors fretted at the time that it wouldn’t
be able to evolve into a “mobile-first” com-
pany. The quarter’s results are a sign that it
At the end of 2013, more than three-quar-
ters of Facebook’s 1.23 billion users — 945
million — logged in using their mobile
devices at least once a month.
Baird Equity analyst Colin Sebastian said
key user metrics and engagement trends —
that is, how much and how often people use
Facebook — remain healthy. He noted that
advertising revenue accelerated for the sev-
enth consecutive quarter.
“Looking ahead, we expect further growth
from video ads, Instagram, and global mon-
etization,” he wrote in a note to investors.
The analyst has an “Outperform” rating on
Facebook’s stock. He raised his target price
to $65 from $54 in light of the results.
Menlo Park, Calif.-based Facebook’s
stock is up $7.48, or 14 percent, to $61 in
late afternoon trading. It hit a record high of
$62.50 earlier.
Google poised to execute
long-delayed stock split
SAN FRANCISCO — Google is finally
ready to split its stock for the first time,
more than three years after co-founders
Larry Page and Sergey Brin began dis-
cussing a move engineered to ensure they
remain in control of the Internet’s most
powerful company.
The split is scheduled to occur April 2. It
had been delayed because of staunch resist-
ance from other Google Inc. shareholders,
who feared the maneuver would unfairly ben-
efit Page and Brin at the expense of just
about everyone else.
Google proposed the unorthodox split so
that Page and Brin could preserve power in
the company they started in a rented garage
more than 15 years ago. It addresses con-
cerns that the founders would lose control of
Google as the company creates more shares
to compensate its employees and buy start-
To gain clearance for the split, Google
settled a shareholders lawsuit and agreed to
pay up to $7.5 billion if the split doesn’t
pan out the way the Mountain View compa-
ny envisions.
Google’s 4Q positions
stock to reach new high
SAN FRANCISCO — Google’s earnings
are still rising at an impressive clip even as
a long-running slump in its ad prices deep-
ens and management gambles on risky ven-
tures such as its unprofitable purchase of
smartphone maker Motorola Mobility.
The latest evidence of the company’s
moneymaking prowess emerged Thursday
with the release of results covering the hol-
iday shopping season and the advertising
blitz it produces. Investors evidently liked
what they saw because they drove up
Google’s stock by 4 percent in extended
trading to position the shares to reach a new
peak Friday.
Although the company’s earnings rose 17
percent during the fourth quarter, there were
further signs of deterioration in Google’s ad
prices despite efforts to close the gap
between rates for mobile devices and for tra-
ditional computers.
Zynga buying ‘Clumsy
Ninja’ maker, cutting staff
SAN FRANCISCO — Zynga Inc. said
Thursday it is buying NaturalMotion, the
company behind the hit mobile games
“CSR Racing” and “Clumsy Ninja,” while
cutting 15 percent of its workforce in a turn-
around effort.
The company moved up the release of its
fourth-quarter earnings results by a full week
to coincide with the announcement of the
$527 million acquisition and the job cuts.
Investors sent its shares up 63 cents, or 18
percent, to $4.19 in after-hours trading.

The last time Burlingame and Woodside
locked up for a girls’ soccer game, the
Panthers weren’t shy about how they felt
afterwards. The whistle blew, the scoreboard
on the west side of their field marked a draw
and Burlingame was over the moon with sat-
isfaction after earning that tie against the
reigning PAL Bay Division champions.
So one has to wonder the kind of euphoria
the Panthers must be feeling right about
In the return match between the teams,
Rachel Byrd struck home the game-winning
goal in the 52nd minute to shock the home
team Wildcats 1-0. The victory for
Burlingame keeps them unbeaten in league.
“I don’t know if we had enough confidence
in ourselves,” Byrd said about the team’s
attitude after that initial draw against
Woodside some four weeks ago. “We went
out against one of the best teams in the
league and we realized we could play with
them. I think that was a huge confidence
boost for everyone on the team — especial-
ly those who hadn’t played, like freshmen
and underclassmen. So, I think that was a
confidence boost for us and for the rest of
the season, too.”
“This is a very coachable team,” said
Burlingame head coach Phillip De Rosa.
“You tell them what to do and they listen.
And today, we told them at half time they
needed to get to the ball first. And that was
the difference. We had to weather the initial
storm. Woodside won the first half. We won
the second. It was a great win.”
“Their attitude. Their effort. It was very,
very convincing,” said Woodside head
coach Jose Navarrete of the team that hand-
ed his squad its second loss of the league

The process of winnowing out the also-rans
for the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division
team championship began in earnest Thursday
Three teams — Half Moon Bay, South City
and defending champion Terra Nova — were all
undefeated in league meets going into
Thursday’s action.
Two of them, South City and Terra Nova, met
in Pacifica last night. Essentially, it boils down
to win and advance, or lose and go home.
When the final match was done, Terra Nova
had recorded a 49-19 win to stay unbeaten and
keeps the Tigers in the hunt to defend their title.
“We were confident, but we didn’t know what
to expect,” said Terra Nova coach Bill
Armstrong. “Every match is the most impor-
tant match. We don’t look past anybody, espe-
cially with the young team we have.”
Terra Nova (3-0 PALBay) won nine of the 14
matches, including three by forfeit and four
South City coach Steve Matteucci believes
the match turned on the second bout of the
night at 145 pounds, which pitted Terra Nova’s
Ryan McGannon and South City’s Will
Nicholls. There wasn’t a whole lot of action in
the match and when the buzzer sounded after
three, two-minute rounds, McGannon and
Nicholls were tied at 3.
Aone-minute overtime period was added and

HARARE, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwe has seen
a sprinkling of snow only once, and it wasn’t
even in Luke Steyn’s lifetime.
Doesn’t matter one bit.

snowless country of birth
to the University of
Colorado and beyond.
“He might not get a
gold, but there’s plenty of
time,” Kevin Atkinson,
the head of the Zimbabwe
Snow Sports Association,
told The Associated Press.
“It’s great experience and a fantastic achieve-
ment to represent our country at the Winter
Alongside Steyn’s personal story, it’s also
remarkable that Zimbabwe has a snow sports
organization. Snow has fallen in the country
once, records indicate, more than 50 years ago
when a freak light dusting settled in a central
region in 1960.
But since Jamaica’s bobsled team turned up
at the 1988 Calgary Games with borrowed
sleds and a dream, the Winter Olympics has
become reachable for athletes from all sorts of
countries — snow or not.
In Africa, Togo and Morocco also have ath-
letes who have qualified for Sochi this year,
while South Africa could have sent a slalom
skier, too, but decided to turn his place down.

CALGARY, Alberta — Mark Giordano
scored the game-winning goal and Karri
Ramo made 27 saves as the Calgary Flames
extended their winning streak to four with a
4-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on
Thursday night.
Leading 1-0 after the first period, the
Flames increased the lead to two goals at
3:38 of the second. Mikael Backlund’s shot
missed the net but the puck caromed sharply
off the end boards and out the other side.
Giordano one-timed it in as Alex Stalock
scrambled across.
The ninth goal of the season for the
Flames captain extends his career-high scor-
ing streak to eight games.
Lee Stempniak, rookie Sean Monahan
also scored for Calgary and Jiri Hudler added
an empty-net goal.

San Jose.
The Flames have their longest winning
streak since reeling off five straight in

46 seconds into the third.
After Chris Butler lost the puck in front of
his own net, a quick passing sequence with

quick shot over Ramo’s glove.
It was the 13th game for Hayes, who was
recalled from the AHLon Jan. 4 and made his
NHL debut the next day.

Darren Collison scored 22 and DeAndre
Jordan grabbed 20 rebounds for Los Angeles,
which had won four straight. The Clippers
looked worn out after beating Washington on
Wednesday night in Los Angeles, dropping to

been sidelined with a separated right shoulder.
The Warriors outscored the Clippers 26-11

Golden State improved to 2-1 against the

The Warriors had lost six of nine entering

stunned and silent, but only for a moment.

By Arnie Stapleton
JERSEYCITY, N.J. — Demaryius Thomas’
mother and grandmother will cheer for the
Broncos receiver around the prison TV
Sunday, both wearing No. 88 jerseys they
crafted with strips of tape.
The two women have never seen Thomas
play in person. He was 11 when police burst
through the door of their home in Montrose,
Ga., and arrested both in 1999. Police
allowed Katina Smith to walk her son and
his two younger sisters to the school bus
one last time.
Now she’s at a minimum-security prison
in Florida, sentenced to 20 years. Her moth-
er, Minnie Pearl Thomas, who had two pre-
vious drug convictions, received two life
sentences with the possibility for parole
after 40 years.
Smith could have gotten a lighter sentence
by testifying against her mother, but she
They’ll watch Thomas play in his first
Super Bowl Sunday, when he will be matched
against Seahawks star cornerback Richard
Sherman for much of the game.
“I think that drives me
more to know that they’re
there and they’re watch-
ing me,” Thomas said. “I
try to go out there and
play my best because
they’re going to talk
about it to the people in
the jailhouse.”
Thomas’ father was
serving in the Army and
stationed in Kuwait when
his mother and grandmother were arrested.
He went to live with an aunt and uncle,
Shirley and James Brown, a Baptist minister
who lived six miles away.
Thomas, called “Bay-Bay” by his family,
started working as an usher at the church and
attending Bible study after track and basket-
ball practices.
“Once I moved in with him, I told him I
wanted to do something to stay off the
streets and stay out of trouble, so I tried foot-
ball,” Thomas said. “And it worked out for
Thomas played at Georgia Tech and was a
first-round pick by Denver in 2010. Injuries
slowed him down until his 80-yard catch
from Tim Tebow in overtime beat Pittsburgh
in the playoffs.
Two months later, Peyton Manning came
to Denver and Thomas has flourished ever
since, catching 204 passes for 3,089 yards
and 27 touchdowns over the last two years.
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound deep threat has
an uncanny mix of size, speed and strength
— Wes Welker laughed about his “Triple-XL
gloves.” Dominique Rodgers Cromartie said
he lost a bet when he challenged Thomas to
throw a ball 60 yards from his knees “and he
just flicked it!”
Yet, Thomas is the antithesis of the prima
donna wide receiver who demands passes and
attention. He never says a thing to the cor-
nerback covering him, much less talk trash.
It goes back to the values instilled in him
by his aunt and uncle, Thomas said.
“It made me a stronger man and a better
man just being in that atmosphere, working
harder, knowing that nothing’s going to be
easy. ”
Brown said it wasn’t easy taking in anoth-
er child with three kids of his own and just
one paycheck, but he found ways to make it
all work. He also found the money to keep
Thomas involved in sports.
“I truly believe his Christian upbringing
and sports, playing basketball and football,
contributed to him releasing a lot of the
anger and anxiety that he had in him,”
Brown said. “He left it on the basketball
court, on the football field so it didn’t get
bottled up in him.”
Thomas led all NFL receivers in TD recep-
tions (14) and yards after the catch (718)
this season while grabbing 92 passes for
1,430 yards. In the playoffs, he has 15
receptions for 188 yards and TDs in both of
Denver’s wins.
“Watching him mature as a football player
and as a person has been tremendous,” team-
mate Eric Decker said. “The guy has so much
Brown says he just wanted Thomas to
grow up to be a good man, never thinking he
would become a star.
“The blessing has been just seeing the
product of how we took this young man who
was lost — well, trying to find his way —
and we were able to nurture him and give him
what he needed,” said Brown, who will be in
the stands Sunday. “When Demaryius was
staying with us, I never dreamed that he
would be in the Super Bowl. I just wanted to
make sure the anger in him didn’t send him
down the wrong path like his mama and
grand-mama had gone down.”
Mom, grandma root for Denver’s Thomas from prison
NEW YORK — The Chicago Bears were
such big favorites over the New England
Patriots in the 1986 Super Bowl that bettors
were reluctant to put their money on either
But many of them couldn’t wait to place a
few bucks on the chance Bears coach Mike
Ditka might give William “The Refrigerator”
Perry the ball on short yardage and let him
try to score a touchdown.
Ditka did just that, and Perry made the
move pay off. The defensive lineman scored
a touchdown in the third quarter of a 46-10
blowout, and bettors who got up to 40-1
odds on the proposition bet scored along
with him.
“That was the prop that put everybody on
the map,” Jimmy Vaccaro said. “We lost
$40,000 on one bet and the guy across the
street blew so much he wanted to go upstairs
and jump off the roof.”
Linemen still score touchdowns only
rarely. But betting on the so-called “props”
put up by Las Vegas sports books has
become big.
At Vaccaro’s South Point hotel sports
book, gamblers can bet on some 300 differ-
ent proposition bets, from who will win the
opening coin toss to the 1,000-1 odds on
either the Denver Broncos or Seattle
Seahawks scoring a touchdown in the big
Find an offshore book to wager with, and
the props become even more exotic. At the
Bovada website, bettors can wager on things
as diverse as how many times Peyton
Manning will say “Omaha” during the game
(over/under 27 1/2) to how long it will take
Renee Fleming to sing the national anthem
(2:25 is the book’s guess).
“It’s a higher number than we’ve offered in
the past,” said Bovada oddsmaker Pat
Morrow. “But after seeing some of her per-
formances we figured as an opera singer she
would have a higher tendency of drawing out
a note. We had to watch a lot of YouTube to
make that line.”
Prop bets have become a major part of
Super Bowl wagering in recent years, mak-
ing up some 30 to 40 percent of all betting.
They may be even bigger this year as casual
gamblers look for something to keep their
interest in the game other than the 2 1/2-
point spread currently favoring the Broncos.
Last year, a record $98.9 million was bet
legally on the game in Nevada, with untold
millions more with illegal bookies and
sports books that operate outside the U.S.
At the LVH sports book, bettors can bet on
which coach will use the challenge flag first
(11-10 odds on both Pete Carroll and John
Fox) to most yards receiving between Doug
Baldwin and Wes Welker (minus 15.5 yards
for Welker).
The bets that reach across two sports are
always popular, with the number of points
scored Sunday by Oklahoma City’s Kevin
Durant (plus 7.5) up against Manning’s total
pass attempts. Another offers birdies made
by Tiger Woods in the fourth round of the
Dubai Desert Classic (plus 0.5) against the
number of receptions for Denver’s
Demaryius Thomas.
Vaccaro said betting across sports became
popular after some books posted a line in
1996 on the amount of points Michael
Jordan would score vs. the Phoenix Suns
against the points scored by the Dallas
Cowboys later that day against the
Pittsburgh Steelers.
Jordan dropped 31 on the Suns, while the
Cowboys won 27-17, and a lot of bettors
cashed tickets.
“We actually wrote well over $100,000 on
that prop,” Vaccaro said. “All I know is I lost
$25,000 on one bet.”
Like the national anthem at 2:25? There’s a bet for that

season. “We didn’t match their intensity. It is
as simple as that.”
Intensity had something to do with it, but
not entirely. Even a couple of girls on the
Burlingame bench admitted near the end of the
game — after Woodside forward Erika Negrete
just missed equalizing by a couple of inches —
that they had been lucky during a couple of
stretches. Still, luck favors the team that works
the hardest and, on Thursday, Burlingame clear-
ly outpaced Woodside — especially on the
defensive side of the ball.
In the first half, Woodside sent wave after
wave after wave of offensive attack toward the
Burlingame goal. While the Panthers, on the
other hand, had very little offensive rhythm
and were dominated in the midfield. Without
any presence there, the Burlingame attack con-
sisted of a Hail Mary long ball and a prayer for
a Woodside mistake in the backline that never
But to the Panthers’ credit, their defensive
efforts, led by Greer Chrisman, stood strong,
while Nina Chikanov made the saves she need-
ed to keep the score 0-0.
“That is what has happened to us all season,”
Navarrete said. “We let teams hang around,
hang around, hang around and we shoot our-
selves in the foot later on. Like I said, I think
people are doing a great job playing that way
against us and we haven’t been to able to get
that goal to open them up, take care of the ball
and then get a second. But credit to Burlingame.
They played very hard. And that’s why they’re
undefeated in league. What they’re doing is
What Burlingame did in the second half was
capitalize on the few chances they did get at the
Woodside goal.
“We definitely came out with more intensity
in the second half,” Byrd said. “And, we weren’t
happy with how defensive we were playing. We
weren’t showing any signs of attack in the first
half. And, we didn’t want to play for a tie. We
wanted to play for a win. We came out and were
looking for a goal in the second half.”
That goal came 12 minutes into the second
half after some pressure by Alexis Prieto on the
left wing got the ball deep into Woodside terri-
tory. The Wildcats had trouble blasting the ball
out of their penalty box and instead, a ricochet
shot rolled over to Ashley Harper, who laid the
ball off to a charging Byrd. The midfielder then
struck the ball pure and with power to beat the
Woodside keeper for the 1-0 lead.
With a ton of time left on the clock, the
Wildcats continued to attack and were rewarded
with about four chances at goal that left
Burlingame gasping — two of which came off
the foot of the always-dangerous Jillienne
But the Panthers withstood that late storm
and came away with the big win.
“They’re definitely a great team,” Byrd said.
“I’m just really happy with this win. And, I
think we have the mentality that we can win
any game and we want to win every game.
Every team is really good this year. No game is
going to be a cake walk. I think we just want it
a lot more now.”

NEWYORK — The Portland Trail
Blazers and Houston Rockets each
had two players picked as reserves
for the NBA All-Star game, while
the Indiana Pacers had to settle for
just Roy Hibbert despite the
league’s best record.
LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian
Lillard made it from the Trail
Blazers, who have been among the
Western Conference leaders all sea-
Dwight Howard, who was passed
late in fan voting for a starting
spot, was chosen Thursday along
with Houston teammate James
Old reliables Chris Paul, Tony
Parker and Dirk Nowitzki round out
the West reserves for the Feb. 16
game in New Orleans.
Nowitzki earned his 12th selec-
tion, tying him for sixth all-time
with nine players.
“I have been a part of All-Star
weekend every year since I have
been in the league and not being
there last year felt strange,”
Nowitzki said in a statement. “The
Dallas fan base has always been
great to me and the Mavericks’
organization and the city deserves
to be represented at the All-Star
The rest of the East reserves are:
Miami’s Chris Bosh, Washington’s
John Wall, Toronto’s DeMar
DeRozan, Brooklyn’s Joe
Johnson, Chicago’s Joakim Noah
and Atlanta’s Paul Millsap.
Wall is the first Wizards All-Star
since Caron Butler and Antawn
Jamison were picked in 2008, the
last time the game was in New
“I am very proud to represent the
Wizards franchise and the city of
Washington as an All-Star and to
share this honor with the fans who
have supported me and stuck by me
since I arrived here,” said Wall, the
No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft.
The Pacers hoped Lance
Stephenson, who leads the NBAi n
triple-doubles, would also be
selected to join Hibbert and Paul
George, who was voted to start.
The reserves were chosen by the
coaches from each conference, who
had to vote for two guards, three
frontcourt players and two regard-
less of position. They were not
allowed to vote for their own play-
The West ones went for veterans
with their choices at guard in Paul,
last year’s All-Star game MVP from
the Los Angeles Clippers, and the
Spurs’ Parker. That left first-time
hopefuls Goran Dragic of Phoenix
and Mike Conley Jr. of Memphis
The starters were announced last
week: Miami’s LeBron James and
Dwyane Wade, New York’s Carmelo
Anthony and Cleveland’s Kyrie
Irving were voted to start along
with George.
The fans voted for NBA scoring
leader Kevin Durant of Oklahoma
City, the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant,
Golden State’s Stephen Curry,
Minnesota’s Kevin Love and the
Clippers’ Blake Griffin.
Blazers, Rockets each get
two NBA All-Star reserves
who directed it in front for Monahan. The
rookie redirected it out of the air for his
team-leading 15th goal.
Stalock, who had only surrendered one
goal on 65 shots in his previous three
starts, got the nod in net for the Sharks, and
finished with 26 stops.
Ramo got the start for the Flames for the
fifth time in six games.
Calgary opened the scoring at 8:41 of the
first period on a nice rush by Backlund.
Darting down the wing, he got around Matt
Irwin to get a shot on goal. Stalock stopped
that one but Stempniak was right there to
poke in the rebound.
NOTES: Calgary LW Mike Cammalleri
(concussion) missed his ninth game. He is
back practicing with the team and hopes to
play Saturday against Minnesota ... Tyler
Kennedy (lower body) did not play for San
Jose. He was hurt Wednesday night in
Edmonton ... Calgary is 16-9-7 in one-goal
games and now 4-18 in games decided by
two-or-more goals ... Since being converted
to a forward, San Jose’s Brent Burns has 49
points (23 goals, 26 assists) in 66 games.

Of course, Steyn needed snow and there-
fore other countries to make his winter
dream happen after first taking up skiing on
family vacations in Europe. He perfected his
art while studying in the United States, on
trips to New Zealand and Chile, and then
throughout Europe in a bid to qualify.
Backed by Zimbabwe’s recently formed
snow sports group and the national sports
council, he said he drove about 3,000 kilo-
meters (1,800 miles) through France, Italy
and Switzerland in 20 days to gather enough
points in his events to make the grade for
Sochi before the Jan. 19 cutoff for qualify-
i ng.
There were also weather problems in
Europe, where poor snowfalls affected his
schedule almost every day. Once again,
Steyn was left chasing the snow.
“It has been a case of readjusting to the
European winter where races have been
tougher and there have been a large amount
of athletes at the races that haven’t been
canceled,” Steyn said.
When it comes to the country of his birth,
Steyn’s skiing has taken him further away
from Zimbabwe, yet he said he’s dedicated to
his home country and will return.
“Africa is in your blood,” he said.
In a troubled nation that has an estimated
3 million people living abroad as economic
or political fugitives, Steyn also has the
backing of the Zimbabwe Olympic
Committee and the state-run Sports and
Recreation Council to wear Zimbabwe’s col-
ors on the Sochi snow.
“This is a first for us. We are fully behind
the athlete who will lift the country’s flag
there,” ZOC chief executive Anna Mguni
Atkinson, who shares his role as head of
the snow sports association with his day
job as a high school headmaster, added that
Zimbabwe’s competitive sporting spirit —
displayed by golfers like Nick Price and
two-time Olympic swimming champion
Kirsty Coventry — was pivotal in helping
create its first Winter Olympics qualifier.
The lack of snow didn’t matter.
“(Steyn) has had a lot of people wonder-
ing how we can produce a world-class
skier,” Atkinson said. “Zimbabwe tends to
breed a competitive spirit. But it’s not just
about winning at all costs. It’s a healthy
enthusiasm for all sport.”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Say goodbye to the
NASCAR era when a driver, fresh off a satis-
fying, top-10 finish,
climbs from the car and
raves about what a good
points day it was.
Winning is all that
matters under the latest
and most radical change
to the Chase for the
Sprint Cup champi-
NASCAR’s overhauled
championship format announced Thursday
is a 16-driver, winner-take-all elimination
system designed to reward “the most worthy,
battle-tested” driver at the end of the season.
“Riding around and being pleased because
the (previous) format rewards consistency,
those days are going to be pretty much
over,” NASCAR Chairman Brian France
The field, expanded from 12 to 16 drivers,
will be whittled down to a final four through
eliminations after every three races of the
10-race Chase. The remaining four drivers
will go into the season finale with an equal
chance to win the championship: The first of
the four to cross the finish line will be
crowned Sprint Cup champion.
“No math. No bonus points. It’s as simple
as it gets,” France said.
It’s the fourth change to either the points
or championship format since France creat-
ed the Chase in 2004. For 28 years prior to
the Chase, consistency reigned as the cham-
pion was the driver with the most points at
the end of the season.
That ended a year after Matt Kenseth won
the 2003 title with a single victory, and
France began his pursuit of creating “Game 7
moments.” Along the way, he has pushed his
agenda of wanting aggressive drivers chas-
ing wins.
He’ll get that under the new format, which
makes settling for points pretty much point-
Why? Because a win in the 26-race regular
season virtually guarantees a berth in the
Chase. Then, eliminations begin, and a driv-
er can guarantee a trip to the next round with
a victory.
Last August, Brad Keselowski chased Kyle
Busch around Watkins Glen and declined to
aggressively move his rival out of the way.
Keselowski settled for second, racing for a
good points day and declining to inflame his
touchy relationship with Busch. But in
doing so, he failed to win a regular-season
race and missed the Chase, making him inel-
igible to defend his title.
Under the new format, a winless
Keselowski would have no choice in that
same situation but to bang fenders with
Busch and go after the win.
That’s exactly what France wants to see on
the track each week.
“This is pretty clear: You have to win, you
have to compete at a higher level, you have
to take more chances,” France said.
NASCAR creates winner-take-all format

The Terra Nova coaching staff was jumping
up and down, looking for an illegal hold. A
Tigers assistant coach had a discussion with
the referee, as well as Matteucci, and after
about five minutes, the referee ruled Nicholls
was using an illegal hold and McGannon was
awarded one point — and the victory.
Armstrong said his assistant, Dennis
Shillings, is a former wrestling referee and
knows the rulebook forward and back.
“I don’t think I even own a rulebook,”
Armstrong joked.
Instead of South City possibly picking up
three points, those went the Tigers, turning a
6-0 lead — following a pin by Chase
Edgington in the first match of the night —
into a 9-0 advantage.
South City could never recover.
“Nicholls losing on a technical foul, that
was big. That was a six-point swing,”
Matteucci said.
That win was followed up two more Tigers’
victories, with Iakona Simpliciano beating
his opponent 10-1 at 152 pounds, followed
by an OJ Gazo forfeit win.
After four matches, Terra Nova led 19-0.
South City (2-1) picked up its first win at
172, where Dupra Goodman got two, 2-point
takedowns and a pair of reversals to post an 8-
2 win.
The Warriors made it two in a row when Peter
Lopez held off Terra Nova’s Dante Campagna
1-0 on a second-round escape.
But the Tigers picked up another six points
on a South City forfeit at 195 pounds for a 25-
6 advantage.
That preceded two straight pins by the
Tigers. Joshua Bradshaw and Lofi Malepea
were involved in an exciting match at 220.
But with the score tied at 5, Bradshaw got a
quick takedown and finished off Malepea, pin-
ning him with 23 second left in the first peri-
Feeding off that, Terra Nova heavyweight
Adam Noce also earned a first-round pin to put
Terra Nova up 37-6.
South City won two of the final three match-
es — Justin Del Castillo winning at 106 and
Chris Magallanes winning at 120 — but it
was too little too late.
Half Moon Bay 49, Sequoia 20
The Cougars kept pace with Terra Nova in
the standings, beating the Cherokees to also
stay unbeaten in PALBay Division matches.
Half Moon Bay (3-0 PAL Bay) was aided by
five pins, which was good for 30 points. In
all, the Cougars won 10 of the 14 matches,
including pins from Spencer Boling (134) and
Jose Ayon (heavyweight).

The San Jose Earthquakes
unveiled the club’s new logo and
jerseys during their 40th
Anniversary Party on Thursday in
San Jose. Over 4,000 fans were on
hand for the event, which celebrated
40 years of professional soccer in
San Jose.
“This is a momentous day for the
San Jose Earthquakes as we contin-
ue to shape the identity of this club
to match its rich history and com-
munity ties,” said Earthquakes pres-
ident Dave Kaval via team release.
“After consulting with fans, former
players, staff and community stake-
holders, we established three pillars
for the club: Unity, Devotion,
Heritage. Each of those pillars was
integrated into the design of our
new logo and will define the organi-
zation going forward.”
The Earthquakes also unveiled
their new jerseys for 2014. The kits
used inspiration from adidas’ 2014
World Cup kits combined with ele-
ments from the club to create an
innovative look.
Both jerseys feature banding
across the back, adidas’ signature
jersey element for the 2014 World
Cup in Brazil.
The primary kit follows the
club’s style from 2000-05 with a
blue top, black shorts and blue
socks. One of the unique features is
the impact pattern from the club’s
logo faded across the chest. In
remembering the club’s roots, the
words “San Jose 1974” are stitched
inside the collar and “Established
1974” is emblazoned behind the
neck on the top’s exterior.
The secondary kit will serve as
the club’s 40th anniversary uni-
form. The jersey pays tribute to the
NASL teams and players with red
tops, shorts and socks. The red kits
also include the impact pattern
across the chest.
The inside of the collar will still
feature the red with the San Jose
1974. On the back, the club has
added a unique element, #neversay-

veiling of the new team logo. The home kit keeps the tradition blue top
while the away kit is a nod toward the Quakes’ early years as part of the
NASL.The red kit fuses the two by adding a #neversaydie on the inside.

and heritage from around the world.We wanted
a logo that showed our club’s strong connection
to the world’s game.The three sides of the shield

Bay Area: San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland.
Pattern: The blue and black impact pattern is a
representation of the shifting of the Earth’s tec-
tonic plates and the energy created within our
club on and off the field.The impact pattern also
represents our community’s forwardthinkingap-
proach and belief in creating positive change
through innovation.

BEIJING — Dragging a heavy suitcase
through a Shanghai subway station, 17-
year-old Linghu Yong prepared himself to
cram onto a jam-packed train Thursday for
the 30-hour trip home to spend the Lunar
New Year with his family.
And he was one of the lucky ones. Crowds
of other migrant workers were still camped
out for the often dayslong wait for a ticket.
“I’ll be celebrating the New Year for the
first time on the train,” said the aspiring
college student from the western city of
Chongqing, who came to Shanghai to
apprentice at a cellphone factory. “My New
Year wish is to go home to celebrate the
New Year with my family, and to buy a com-
puter. ”
China’s Lunar New Year migration is
often referred to as the largest movement of
people anywhere, with 3.6 billion trips of
all lengths by bus, plane and train expected
to be made over the 40-day travel rush.
While still an annual ritual for millions
working far from home, such journeys are
being shunned by many of the newly pros-
perous who are increasingly using the
weeklong national holiday to fly to over-
seas or tourist spots within China.
Beijing accountant Wang Zheng, 34, said
her whole family will go to China’s tropical
resort island of Hainan despite its reputa-
tion for holiday price-gouging by hotels
and restaurants.
“Why not make the holiday more fun
rather than just having the usual big dinner
with family or going to the traditional tem-
ple fair? That definitely gets old,” she said.
Chinese communities around the world
were gearing up for the holiday that begins
at midnight. On self-governing Taiwan,
revelers jammed into the capital Taipei’s
historic shopping district to load up on hol-
iday snacks. Health authorities said that
nearly 40 percent of the island’s population
can be expected to gain two kilograms (4.4
pounds) during the holiday.
Hong Kong officials expect nearly 8 mil-
lion travelers to pass through its borders
from January 29 to February 6, more than
the local population of 7.1 million. Most
of those travelers will be mainland
Chinese, who have been flooding into the
semiautonomous territory in increasing
numbers in recent years thanks to rising
incomes and a strengthening yuan.

considered an auspicious time, and busi-

conjunction with Around the Table, the
San Jose Museum of Art’s community
initiative, Sip. Do Not Gulp examines
the interconnectedness of food and
water throughout Santa Clara Valley’s
long history. Created by Bay Area artist
Michele Guieu, the site-specific instal-
lation calls attention to the shifting
patterns and practices of water usage in
this area. Even before the current
drought, agricultural development, pop-
ulation increase and urban sprawl placed
stress on the availability of fresh water,
which was once an abundant resource.
Guieu’s installation, comprised of a
painted mural, a documentary video and
a symbolic acorn “rug,” highlights the
preciousness of water as a local resource
and particularly draws connections to
food production in this region: if there
is no water, there is no food.
Guieu’s painted mural, designed
specifically for the de Saisset Museum,
extends across three walls and depicts
four distinct periods in local history. As
you enter the gallery, Native California
is the focus of the left wall. When the
Ohlone people first inhabited this
region, the landscape was replete with
water, which was a core element in their
mythology. The center wall of the mural
addresses the Mission and Rancho peri-
ods. With the arrival of the missions
came the introduction of agriculture.
Irrigation systems appeared and their
usage intensified during the Rancho
period, when the water supply still
seemed to be unlimited. Also on the cen-
tral wall, a documentary video made by
Guieu brings together three contempo-
rary voices — an Ohlone descendant, a
chef and artist and a scientist — who
lend their expertise to the discussion.
The wall on the right depicts Santa Clara
Valley today, a view of San Jose sitting
at the heart of Silicon Valley. No longer
available in unlimited quantity, fresh
water usage is regulated and is likely to
be more carefully distributed as society
struggles to preserve this precious
resource. In the center of the room lies a
rug formed of acorns hand-picked local-
ly from different species of oaks.
Acorns were an essential food source for
the Ohlone. In the middle of the rug, a
small table is set with a pitcher of water
— a reminder that the most important
thing on the menu is water.
ABOUT WATER. Museum visitors are
invited to share stories, commentary
and reflections on the role of water in
their lives by posting comments direct-
ly onto the surface of the mural. With
time, the image created by Guieu will
become a forum for discussion — a place
where the community can exchange
ideas, express concerns and develop

The secret to this tart recipe is using the best quality jam you can find.
By Elizabeth Karmel
About a decade ago I traveled to Italy to take
a cooking class. Of the many things I brought
home from that trip, none is more cherished
than my recipe for Italian jam tart.
I learned it from Judy Witts Francini, an
American who teaches cooking classes that
capture the simple home cooking of Tuscany.
The first tart we made — technically a crosta-
ta — was filled with fig jam, but these simple
pastries made from butter, sugar and flour real-
ly can be filled with anything.
This is one of those treasured recipes where
the sum is greater than the parts! The list of
ingredients is short and basic. For that first
tart I made, the secret was a beautiful jar of
homemade fig jam scented with lemon zest
and almonds. I was incredulous that some-
thing so easy to make could taste so good.
The crust is so wonderful, a cross between pie
dough and a sugar cookie.
When I came home, I was obsessed with
making the tart. I start by creaming the butter
and sugar as if I am making a cake. I like to add
orange blossom water to the dough, but you
can use vanilla or almond extract.
I then whisk together the flour and salt, and
add it to the butter mixture by hand, mixing
just until crumbs form. During my class in
Italy, we reserved some of the dough to make
a lattice top, but I simplify and just sprinkle
some crumbs of the crust over it.
As I learned in Italy, the real secret to the
tart is using the best quality jam you can find.
I look for jam made with only a bit of sugar,
and I prefer fig, apricot, cherry, strawberry and
raspberry. The thing I love about switching
up the jams is that you can add extracts and
seasonings to match your jams. When I make
a fig jam tart, I add a touch of cardamom to the
crust; when I make cherry, I use almond
extract instead of orange blossom. You can
even make the crust chocolate with the addi-
tion of 1/2 cup of cocoa powder. The list of
variations goes on and on.
Start to finish: 1 hour
Servings: 6
13 tablespoons (1 stick plus 5 table-
spoons) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon orange blossom water or
vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Generous 1/2 cup (about 6.5 ounces) fig,
apricot, cherry or berry jam
Heat the oven to 350 F. Position an oven
rack in the center of oven.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer with
the whisk attachment to beat the butter and
sugar on medium speed until the mixture is
very light in color, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the
orange water or extract and blend well.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour
and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter
mixture and mix by hand just until the dough
is thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds.
Measure out a scant 1/2 cup of the dough and
smooth it out on a small plate, then place the
plate in the freezer.
Meanwhile, press the remaining dough
evenly into and up the sides of a 9-inch tart
pan with removable bottom. If the dough is
too soft to work with, chill it briefly.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Once the tart has chilled, spread the jam
evenly in it, starting from the center and leav-
ing a border of about 1/2 inch around the
edges. The jam should be thinly spread and
not resemble a filled pie. Remove the reserved
dough from the freezer and crumble it into
small pieces over the jam.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top-
ping is a beautiful golden brown. Remove
from the oven and place on a rack to cool
completely. Remove the tart from the sides of
the pan and cut into wedges.

In a nation already reeling from the Great
Depression, states like Oklahoma were hit
especially hard after prolonged drought and
fierce winds transformed them into the Dust
John Steinbeck told how one extended
family dealt with these hard times in his
greatest novel, “The Grapes of Wrath.”
Hillbarn Theatre brings this saga to its
stage in the theatrical adaptation by Frank
Having lost their livelihood and home to
that double whammy of the Depression and
Dust Bowl, the extended Joad family, like
many others, set off for California in
search of work and a better life in the
Thirteen people piled into and onto a
beat-up old truck and headed west. Shortly
after they arrived in Southern California,
only eight remained. The others had died or
The first victim was the family’s patri-
arch, Grampa Joad (Bob Fitzgerald), soon
followed by his wife and the family matri-
arch, Granma Joad (Kay “Kiki” Arnaudo).
Trying to hold the family together was
the indomitable Ma Joad (Claudia
McCarley), along with her husband, the
less decisive Pa Joad (Wes Chick), and their
eldest son, the loyal Tom Joad (Rich
When they arrived in California, they
found that competition for jobs such as
picking fruit was keen. Landowners took
advantage of the migrants by paying prac-
tically nothing. Local police harassed the
newcomers, especially those who would
dare to try to organize for better pay.
Violence and death were common.
Thanks to imaginative direction by Greg
Fritsch, the 22-member Hillbarn cast
brings Steinbeck’s characters to vivid life.
However, the show starts slowly because
it’s so talky when Tom, just paroled from
prison for a murder conviction, encounters
Jim Casy (Jerry Lloyd), a former preacher.
The pace picks up as other characters are
introduced and the family heads west in the
first act. It moves better with more action
in the second of the two acts.
Moreover, the acting can be uneven, but
the lead characters are fine. Especially
noteworthy are McCarley’s Ma Joad and
Matli’s Tom Joad.
Alan Chang’s sound design adds drama,
especially at the very first with the sounds
of a fierce wind whipping up the top soil
and blowing it away.
Scenic designer Cheryl Brodzinsky has
created a central set piece, complemented
by Matthew Royce’s lighting, that does
multiple duties, mainly as a wrecked house,
the truck and a box car.
Kate Schroeder’s costumes reflect the
times and the characters’ circumstances.
However, it seems odd that the mechanical-
ly inclined Al Joad (Jeremy Helgeson)
would wear the same grease-stained outfit
throughout the play.
Songs like “Going Home” and others
from the time enhance the production,
thanks to music direction and arrangements
by Greg Sudmeier.
Because of its scope and large cast, “The
Grapes of Wrath” is an ambitious undertak-
ing, especially for a community group like
Hillbarn. For the most part, it’s successful,
thanks not only to the cast and artistic staff
but also to the genius of Steinbeck.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Afriendly
Super Bowl bet between the mayors of
Seattle and Denver is causing a stir in
New Mexico.
If the Seahawks win on Sunday,
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has
wagered a few things he says are
indicative of his city. Among them:
handmade skis, a hoodie and a sam-
pling of Denver’s “amazing green
Chile from the Mile High City?
The question has fired up New
Mexicans, resulting in a flurry of
social media posts on New Mexico’s
long history with the hot peppers.
Chile is the state vegetable and the
basis of the official state question —
“Red or green?” A state law even has
been passed to protect the spicy repu-
tation of New Mexico peppers by tar-
geting impostors everywhere from
roadside stands to grocery stores.
“We are the chile state,” declared
Katie Goetz, a spokeswoman for the
New Mexico Department of
To help set the record straight,
department officials aren’t waiting for
the outcome of Sunday’s matchup
between the Broncos and Seahawks.
They’re getting green chile care pack-
ages ready to send to both Hancock and
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.
Hancock announced this week he
would be wagering a sampling of green
chile from a half-dozen local restau-
rants. There are some chile farms north
of Denver and near Pueblo, but many of
Denver restaurants source their pep-
pers straight from New Mexico, which
pumps out more than 60,000 tons of
green chile every year.
“The flavor of New Mexico green
chile is just unique, and nobody else
can even come close to delivering that
kind of flavor,” said Jaye Hawkins of
the New Mexico Chile Association.
“I’m assuming that’s what the folks in
Colorado love about it.”
When it comes to green chile, Gov.
Susana Martinez said Thursday there’s
no question it’s synonymous with New
“Although New Mexico doesn’t have
an NFL team, we definitely win the
Super Bowl of green chile every single
year,” the governor said. “Our green
chile, whether from Hatch or Chimayo
or anywhere else in the state, is our
state’s Lombardi Trophy. ”
Chile is a sacred crop in New
Mexico. For neighbors to the north, it
has become a culinary pursuit.
“If you’re a Denver native, you’ll
know all too well of the green chile
culture here,” said Amber Miller, a
spokeswoman for the mayor. “People
put it on everything, and then you can
even eat it straight up as soup. We have
chile cook-offs.”
It’s not so different in Denver come
late summer when the sweet smell of
roasting green chile permeates the air
outside some grocery stores and mar-
kets, Miller said.
“New Mexico and Colorado do share
in two major items here — a love of
our green chile and a love of the
Denver Broncos,” she said.
And for the Broncos, green chile has
become somewhat of a good luck
charm. Hancock first wagered it for the
AFC title game and again during the
Denver mayor sparks Super Bowl chile battle
For the Broncos,green chile has become somewhat of a good
luck charm.

“It’s the fact that from what we’re
being told was in the recycling pile,
there was nothing that would self com-
bust,” Hart said.
Officials are in the process of ruling
out potential causes and after determin-
ing there was no natural or obvious
ignition source, such as lightning,
they now consider it suspicious, Hart
Police and fire investigators are con-
tinuing to review days worth of sur-
veillance footage taken from multiple
locations from inside the plant and the
surrounding area including footage
from the Port of Redwood City, Hart
The metal yard is on a dead-end street
and investigators are hopeful a suspect
will be caught on camera.
City officials are conferring with the
bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms
and Explosives for assistance with
processing forensics, Hart said.
Redwood City firefighters fought a
similar fire Nov. 10 that was not con-
sidered suspicious so police don’t
believe the two are related, Hart said.
Redwood City Fire Marshal Jim Palisi
agreed but said investigators could not
find its exact ignition source.
Sims Metal Management representa-
tives seem to be relieved by the Police
Department’s announcement and main-
tained their cooperation, according to
a statement by Sims.
“While not conclusive as to cause,
the Police Department’s statement that
there is a common consensus amongst
the investigators that the fire may
have been deliberately set is of course
of concern to us. It is also consistent
with our understanding of the suspi-
cious circumstances of that incident,”
according to the statement.
City officials gave Sims strict regu-
lations after the second fire, which
occurred after hours when only one
security guard was on duty. Under the
city’s new demands, three qualified
operators must be present 24 hours a
day, seven days a week and the compa-
ny must halt operations should
staffing levels fall short.
The city, various county offices, the
Bay Area Air Quality Management
District, the Department of Substance
Control and Sims participated in a
meeting outlining guidelines and con-
firming each jurisdiction has an open
investigation which they will report
on once details are finalized, according
to an email from a Redwood City
spokeswoman Sheri Costa-Batis.
Further details are not being released
at this time as the investigation is still
ongoing, Hart said.
Firefighters also battled a blaze at
the same recycling center in April
2007. The Bay Area Air Quality
Management District levied public
nuisance violations for the 2007 and
November fires due to large quantities
of contaminates that annoyed or
caused a nuisance to the public.
Anyone with information regarding
the Dec. 17 fire is urged to contact
Redwood City police detectives at
(650) 780-7607. Those who wish to
remain anonymous may call Crime
Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.

although they can still be considered at
sentencing. Prosecutors also sought a
one-year possible sentence but a judge
capped the maximum at six months,
said Chief Deputy District Attorney
Karen Guidotti.
Minskoff had previously pleaded
not guilty by reason of insanity and
two doctors concluded the former ex-
Army Ranger was insane at the time.
The conclusion meant Minskoff faced
two trials, one for guilt and the other
to determine if he would be incarcer-
ated or hospitalized.
The negotiated settlement takes the
commitment possibility off the table
and his not guilty by reason of insani-
ty plea will be withdrawn. He will be
sentenced April 4.
Minskoff co-owned Thermo Essence
Technologies in San Carlos and holds a
patent for personal vaporizer inhalers.
Minskoff was in the midst of a
divorce and had a court order prohibit-
ing him from having weapons.
However, in December, deputies
removed weapons from the scenes of
two separate incidents at the San
Carlos business. On Dec. 15, deputies
reported finding $10,000 worth of van-
dalism to the building and the property
burned. Deputies took Minskoff into
custody for his bizarre behavior and
confiscated a loaded gun.
Two days later, according to prosecu-
tors, deputies again responded to the
business and found it ransacked with
the floor burned and Minskoff, who was
at the scene, asked them if they were
there seeking employment. They took
him once more into psychiatric cus-
tody and searched the business with the
co-owner. Inside, they reported finding
four assault weapons and high-capacity
ammunition magazines. They also
reported finding a pair of brass knuck-
les in his car.
Minskoff has also been in a locked
psychiatric facility since his arrest. As
long as he remains there, he is free on a
$150,000 bail bond.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Dealing with an
emotional partner will be a challenge for you today. Try
to take an impartial view of the situation. Do not allow
other people to deflate you or cause you problems.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Experiences in or
around hospitals may leave you feeling a bit dejected.
Try not to take anything too personally at this time.
Your instincts are good, so follow your gut feelings.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Today is a good day to
initiate professional changes. Interviews or a good
discussion with your boss could lead to advancement
if handled correctly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — A spontaneous
outing will turn into a social event. You will gain
a lot of insight from talking to peers or relatives
today. Be attentive because a secret adversary
may attempt to undermine you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Making a financial
deal with someone will require caution, as
deception is likely. You may also have personal
difficulties with someone close to you. Additional
responsibilities are likely unavoidable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Conversations with
your business partner or lover may yield undesirable
results. Now is not the time to make a force play. You
will be frustrated by the obstacles you face.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — A work situation is likely to
make you emotional. Females may cause professional
difficulties for you. An opportunity to make a career
change will be beneficial, if taken.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Avoid impulsive or
eccentric individuals who offer you a business
proposition. Take advantage of any possibility of
traveling. Romance is in the stars.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Deception is present
in your home environment. It would be best to deal
with it head-on. Be clear and direct, and you will
find a solution to your problem. A residential move
is likely at this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Evasiveness in
communications is likely to occur. In-laws may be
meddlesome or may try to throw you off course.
Avoid making any life-changing decisions today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Get out and
socialize with friends. Do something physical in nature,
and you may meet some interesting new people.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You will have
a hard time handling an emotional partner today.
Try to face the truth of the matter. Don’t let other
people crush your spirit or cause you grief.

Ask a Proesional
of 3.3 percent — the best pace since 2010
and a big jump from the 2 percent growth
rate of the previous quarter. Consumer
spending is particularly important because
it accounts for about 70 percent of the econ-
For 2013 as a whole, the economy grew a
tepid 1.9 percent, weaker than the 2.8 per-
cent increase in 2012, the Commerce
Department said Thursday. Growth was held
back by higher taxes and federal spending
cuts that kicked in early in 2013.
A budget deal Congress approved earlier
this month halted tens of billions in addi-
tional spending cuts that were due to kick in
this year. With that drag diminished, many
economists think growth could top 3 per-
cent in 2014. That would be the best show-
ing since the recession ended in mid-2009.
The strength in consumer spending last
quarter was driven by purchases of both
durable goods — products such as cars, com-
puters and communications equipment —
and nondurable goods like clothing.
Spending on services also rose strongly.
In addition, businesses invested in more
equipment. There was also strength from a
shrinking trade deficit.
Spending on home construction declined,
though. And government spending fell at a
4.9 percent rate last quarter, led by a plunge
in federal spending. That was a result, in
part, of the government’s 16-day partial
shutdown during October. The shutdown
shrank fourth-quarter growth by about 0.3
percentage point, the government said.
Many global investors fear that the Fed’s
pullback in its bond purchases will raise
U.S. interest rates and cause investors to
shift money out of emerging markets and
into the United States for higher returns.
Currency values in emerging economies
have fallen over that concern.
In response, central banks in emerging
economies, from India to Turkey to South
Africa, have been acting to counter any
damage from the Fed’s pullback and the
prospect of higher U.S. rates. They’ve been
raising their own rates, hoping to control
inflation, lift their flagging currencies and
keep investors from fleeing. In Argentina,
consumer prices are soaring, the treasury is
short on foreign currency, and the peso has
suffered its sharpest slide in 12 years.
It’s possible the turmoil in those coun-
tries could spill into developed economies
such as the United States’. Overseas demand
for U.S. goods might suffer, for example.
Investors might abandon stocks globally,
including in American markets.
But most analysts think the improving
U.S. economy will manage to withstand any
damage that might spread from overseas.
“I don’t think the (U.S. economy) is terri-
bly vulnerable, assuming it doesn’t rock
financial markets in a deep way,” said
Joshua Feinman, global chief economist
with Deutsche Asset and Wealth
Management. “What we’re seeing in places
like Turkey, South Africa and Argentina I
don’t think matters all that much in the U.S.
. . . The U.S. does seem to be gaining
strength of its own domestically. And
Europe is at least stabilizing.”
The solid U.S. economic growth in the
October-December quarter followed an even
stronger 4.1 percent annual growth rate in
the July-September quarter. But that surge
was due to a huge buildup in business stock-
piles that slowed during the fourth quarter.
The 3.2 percent estimated growth rate for
the economy last quarter was the govern-
ment’s first of three projections of gross
domestic product for the October-December
quarter. GDP measures the economy’s total
output of goods and services.
This year, economists think the economy
will get a lift from continued gains in hir-
ing. Further steady job growth would give
more households money to spend and help
increase consumer spending.
In addition, U.S. manufacturers are
expected to gain from rising global demand.
And housing construction and auto sales are
expected to strengthen further in 2014.
Many analysts think the Fed will keep
paring its support at each of its meetings
this year until it eliminates new bond pur-
chases entirely in December. In making the
announcement, the Fed cited an improving
economy, including more strength in con-
sumer and business spending.
Toronto’s mayor
defends Justin Bieber
TORONTO — Toronto’s favorite black
sheep, Mayor Rob Ford, is rising to the
defense of fellow Canadian Justin Bieber,
who has recently been in the headlines for
the wrong reasons.
Bieber was charged with assault
Wednesday for allegedly hitting a Toronto
limousine driver several times in the back
of the head in an incident last month. The
news broke a mere few hours after the
teenage pop star’s attorney entered a sep-
arate not guilty plea in Florida to drunk-
en-driving and other charges.
Ford, who has admitted smoking crack
while in a drunken stupor and is being
sued for supposedly orchestrating the jail-
house beating of his sister’s ex-
boyfriend, noted that Bieber is only 19
and defended him when a host on the
Washington, D.C.-based radio show “The
Sports Junkies” called Bieber “Canada’s
worst export.”
U.S. says Syria must
comply with chemical arms deal
BEIRUT — The United States accused
the Syrian government Thursday of using
stalling tactics to delay efforts to remove
and destroy chemical agents, an indica-
tion that the international community’s
patience is wearing thin over the slow
pace of the operation.
The comments, delivered by the U.S.
representative to the international chemi-
cal weapons watchdog, marked some of
the strongest public criticism of Syria’s
commitment to relinquish its chemical
Syria agreed to surrender its arsenal
after a deadly chemical attack in August on
a rebel-held suburb of Damascus raised the
threat of punitive U.S. missile strikes.
President Barack Obama has touted the
agreement as a victory and a major policy
achievement for his administration on
Syria’s intractable civil war.
