Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Family Owned & Operated
Established: 1949
By Angela Swartz
Preventing exposure to secondhand
smoke and limiting exposure of minors to
activity that may increase the social accept-
ance of smoking is the idea behind South
San Francisco’s ban of using electronic cig-
arette devices in city spaces while officials
also work on gathering information on the
ramifications of allowing e-cigarette-cen-
tered businesses into the city.
Smoking an e-cigarette is now prohibited
in city buildings; city-owned parking struc-
tures; city vehicles; parks and recreation
areas zoned for that purpose; within 20 feet
of a main exit, entrance or operable window
of any city facility or building; city-owned
parking lots and open-air public places on
city-owned property per a vote by the City
Council Wednesday night. The ordinance
follows the laws the city has about smoking
tobacco in parks and city property, accord-
ing to a staff report.
“It’s limited in scope,” said Councilman
Mark Addiego. “It takes care of city proper-
t y. We don’t want to encourage young peo-
ple to try it. It seems to be something
young people tend to gravitate to. We’re
looking at being more restrictive in the
downtown area, but want to talk to mer-
chants first so we don’t impact their busi-
The city held a study session in March on
extending e-cigarette restrictions to down-
town, said Councilwoman Liza Normandy.
The city currently has a moratorium on
the establishment of e-cigarette lounges,

With national library week just
around the corner, local book lovers
have another reason to celebrate as the
Friends of the San Mateo Library com-
memorates 50 years of volunteerism.
Although members have changed
throughout the years, each has been a
dedicated asset to the city and the
public is invited to join in celebrat-
ing the group’s anniversary at the
main library Wednesday, said City
Librarian Ben Ocón.
The Friends dedicated 4,099 hours of
service last year alone, raised $81,000
through their book sales and are a key
component to the library’s ability to
maintain a relevant collection, Ocón
“When the library was in need … and
had to make cuts, the cuts were made in
the materials budget and thanks to the
Friends of the Library, we were able to
recoup those funds and actually exceed
them,” Ocón said. “The Friends are
able to really move us into the realm of
maintaining and building our collec-
tion to a higher level of excellence. So
we are able to offer the community that
we otherwise wouldn’t be able to.”
The Friends collect donations and
maintain a store at the main library and
online, Ocón said. Through last
month, the Friends have raised around
$65,000 this year alone, Ocón said.
With these funds, the library has
been able to support several new data-
bases available to the community
including Ancestry.com, a genealogy
research; Brainfuse, online homework

San Mateo gives thanks for volunteer organization
Friends of the San Mateo Library volunteers Julie Thoman, Alma Leseo and Sherry Fong organize books they sell to help

Crocodile caught
wandering around mall
ROSEVILLE — Don’t shed any tears
for a crocodile that was captured wander-
ing outside a pet store at a Northern
California shopping mall.
California Fish and Wildlife officials
have taken custody of the croc, are feed-
ing it rainbow trout and will likely
donate it to a zoo.
Police say the crocodile was appar-
ently left outside the Roseville store by
someone who didn’t want it anymore.
The animal had grown to 4-feet long,
and its jaws had been wrapped shut with
heavy-duty tape. There was a note iden-
tifying it as a Nile crocodile and request-
ing someone “call rescue.”
Police say no one was hurt Wednesday
when the animal was picked up with the
help of a catch pole typically used to
nab stray dogs.
In China, jar of French
mountain air fetches $860
BEIJING — Beijing artist Liang
Kegang returned from a business trip in
southern France with well-rested lungs
and a small item of protest against his
home city’s choking pollution: a glass
jar of clean, Provence air.
He put it up for auction before a group
of about 100 Chinese artists and collec-
tors late last month, and it fetched
5,250 yuan ($860).
“Air should be the most valueless
commodity, free to breathe for any
vagrant or beggar,” Liang said in an
interview. “This is my way to question

SACRAMENTO — The board that
oversees the California High-Speed
Rail Authority approved a new business
plan to submit to state lawmakers
Thursday, reflecting lower revenue pro-
jections but leaving the 2028 timeline
for finishing the $68 billion bullet
train unchanged despite legal setbacks
that could cause delays.
The 2014 plan is an update required
every two years for the proposed 520-
mile system linking Northern and
Southern California. It will be submit-
ted to lawmakers, but they are not
required to take any action on it.
Among the changes adopted since
2012 is a lower projection for revenue,
prompted by research showing
Californians are taking shorter but
more frequent trips. Revenue is expect-
ed to be 5 percent lower than originally
projected by 2025 and 10 percent lower
by 2040, but the authority says it still
will be able to operate without taxpayer
The new business plan does not affect
the status of two court rulings being
considered by a state appellate court,
which rail authority officials have
warned could cause serious delays if
they are not overturned.
Sacramento County Superior Court
Judge Michael Kenny concluded that
the project no longer complies with the
promises made to voters when they
approved selling nearly $10 billion in
bonds for it in 2008. He also ordered
the authority to write a new financing
plan explaining how the state will pay
for the first 300 miles of construction.
The business plan adopted Thursday
is separate from that financing plan. It
provides a blueprint for how the rail
line would operate and sets benchmarks
for its various phases.
The rail authority has not set an offi-
cial groundbreaking date for the first
section of track, a roughly 30-mile seg-
ment from Madera to Fresno. Instead, it
says engineering work is ongoing and
it is trying to buy the needed land or
acquire it through eminent domain.
Also Thursday, Kris Murray, the
mayor pro tem of Anaheim, presented
letters Thursday from six Orange
County businesses and associations
that support the bullet train, which
would end in Anaheim under the current
project. Disneyland and the NHL’s
Anaheim Ducks were among them.
The project could generate 23,000
local jobs and $103 million in tax rev-
enue for the county, according to the
letter signed by Disneyland director of
government relations Carrie Nocella. It
also said the rail line would make travel
to and from the region easier, “reducing
congestion and improving our air qual-

Police warn of sweepstakes scam
South San Francisco police are warning of
a scam related to a sweepstakes in which the
victim’s credit card account was paid off and
she was asked to wire two payments to
Jamaica via Western Union as “insurance.”
The scam worked by someone calling the
52-year-old South San Francisco resident
and identifying himself as “David Black
from the United States Sweepstakes.” The
caller had her Social Security number and
Capital One credit card number. The man
said the sweepstakes had paid off her bal-
ance in good faith. She checked her balance
online, verified it to be true and believed the
caller to be legitimate. The Capital One
account was linked to her Citibank money
account and the suspect had moved the
money from her account to pay the balance
of her credit card, according to police.
Anyone with information about this scam
is asked to call the South San Francisco
Police Department at (650) 877-8900 or the
Anonymous tip line at (650) 952-2244.

BART board doles
out raised to top execs
BART directors voted unanimously
Thursday to give raises totaling about
3.7 percent this year to General Manager
Grace Crunican and other top officials at
the transit agency.
The percentage increase in compensation
and benefits for the top executives is the
same that employees represented by labor
unions received in a new contract that was
approved early this year, BART spokesman
Jim Allison said.
That’s in line with BART’s historical
practice of giving similar raises to top offi-
cials to those it gives to rank-and-file work-
ers, he said.
BART directors voted to give Crunican
and the other top executives raises of 1.86
percent retroactive to Jan. 1 plus another
1.8 percent increase on July 1, according to
Crunican’s raise will increase the
$323,200 compensation and benefit pack-
age she received in 2013.
The other top officials affected by the vote
are general counsel Matthew Burrows, con-
troller-treasurer Scott Schroeder, district
secretary Kenneth Duran and independent
police auditor Mark Smith.

SACRAMENTO — Abill that would force
political nonprofits to reveal the names of
campaign donors no longer applies retroac-
tively under an amendment pushed by
Republican lawmakers and approved
Thursday by the Assembly.
The Assembly agreed to the amendment
by unanimous voice vote after SB27 fell
one vote short of passing the Senate last
Sen. Lou Correa, D-Anaheim, introduced
the bill in response to $15 million of
anonymous contributions funneled through
conservative nonprofits ahead of the 2012
general election. The money went to groups
fighting against Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax-
hike initiative, which passed, and pushing
for a failed initiative that would have
restricted the use of union dues for political
The subsequent investigation into the
origin of the money led to the largest cam-
paign reporting fine in California history.
SB27 would require nonprofits to disclose
the sources of donations that are intended
for political campaigns. The bill also would
require campaign committees that raise
more than $1 million to keep a list of their
top 10 contributors of $10,000 or more and
make that available online.
Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff said he
supported increased disclosure but objected
to SB27 because it would have unfairly
applied to donations made before the law
took effect.
“Thousands of unsuspecting people who
have already made a contribution to a non-
profit this year will unknowingly be
exposed,” Huff said in a statement after last
month’s failed vote in the Senate.
The amendment that passed the Assembly
on Thursday is designed to answer
Republican concerns.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Dianne Feinstein
said Thursday she has dropped $300 mil-
lion in emergency spending from drought-
relief legislation to try to improve
prospects for getting the bill passed.
Most parts of California are under
extreme drought conditions. In February,
Feinstein and other senators from the West
introduced legislation designed to increase
water supplies and offset some of the eco-
nomic damage caused by the drought.
Feinstein said Thursday she had introduced
a new version of that bill.
The new bill will continue a focus on
regulatory relief. It mandates that federal
agencies open channel gates on the
Sacramento River as long as possible
without endangering salmon populations.
The gates are closed during certain times
for fishery protection.
The bill also mandates that federal agen-
cies use “flexibility” within existing law
to pump more water to farmers through the
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. It also
speeds up federal decision-making in a
program that offers low-interest loans for
new water projects, and extends the
amount of time that local agencies have to
pay back the loans.
The bill does increase the authorized
caps for two existing drought relief pro-
grams by $100 million, but there’s no
guarantee the extra money would be
included when Congress takes up spending
bills for the coming fiscal year.
Meanwhile, Feinstein stripped out $300
million in emergency spending, such as
$100 million that was to go to farmers to
undertake new conservation projects, and
$25 million that was to go to communities
and non-profits serving migrant and sea-
sonal farmworkers hurt by the loss of
j obs.
The bill also seeks to expand aid to
other drought-stricken states. For exam-
ple, it gives states access to unemploy-
ment benefits and re-employment services
normally reserved for a major disaster such
as hurricane or flood.
The House has passed drought legisla-
tion. Feinstein says her office is close to
securing the 60 votes needed to overcome
procedural hurdles in the Senate.
She said the state’s economy faces a
$7.5 billion hit as a result of the drought
and that more than 15,000 jobs are at risk.
“This is an emergency, and this bill
deserves a vote,” Feinstein said.

Bill would make pharmacy
syringe sales permanent
SACRAMENTO — The Assembly voted
Thursday to make permanent a program that
allows pharmacies to sell syringes to drug
users as a way to prevent diseases spread by
AB1743 by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-
San Francisco, passed on a largely party-
line, 43-26 vote and heads to the Senate.
The bill also removes a 30-syringe limit,
making California the 46th state to allow
for bulk syringe sales. Ting’s office esti-
mates a 100-syringe box can cost about
$30, while a single syringe is less than a
Ting said his bill is supported by public
health data showing that increasing access
to clean syringes is beneficial.

Energy regulator: Steps
underway to protect grid
WASHINGTON — The top federal energy
regulator said Thursday that her agency is
taking steps to improve handling of classi-
fied national security information, follow-
ing a report that officials improperly
allowed widespread access to a document
that outlined specific physical threats to the
nation’s electric grid.
Cheryl LaFleur, acting chairwoman of the
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission,
told the Senate Energy Committee on
Thursday that employees are “wiping and
scrubbing all databases” and taking other
steps to protect sensitive information.
The commission also has directed a non-
profit entity that oversees electric reliabili-
ty to develop physical security standards for
the grid by early June.

WINTER PARK, Fla. — Amanhunt across
Florida ended Thursday with the surrender of
a driver blamed in a deadly crash at a day care
that injured 14 and killed a 4-year-old girl
who was sitting in a classroom awaiting her
afternoon snack.
Robert Alex Corchado turned himself in
and was charged with leaving the scene of a
deadly accident almost precisely 24 hours
after the KinderCare facility in Winter Park
was torn open in the wreck. He was being
held on $100,000 bond, said the Orange
County Corrections Department. His attor-
ney confirmed his client turned himself in
but refused further comment.
“He had nowhere to go,” said Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Wanda Diaz.
Police say Corchado, 28, of Winter Park,
crashed his Dodge Durango into a convert-
ible, which in turn smashed into the
KinderCare building. Authorities pleaded for
the suspect to give up,
even as they blanketed
the state searching for
him. Nicole Quintus,
whose daughter, Lily, was
killed, joined the pleas.
“Families are emotion-
ally destroyed because of
what he did,” she said in
an interview with the
Associated Press.
The mother softly
sobbed as she spoke of her daughter. She
said Lily loved princesses, “Star Wars,” the
TV series “Doctor Who” and ranch dressing
on seemingly everything she ate — even
pizza and hot dogs. Lily was sitting at a
table waiting for her afternoon snack when
the car crashed into the building, and Nicole
Quintus said a teacher called her soon after,
screaming but unable to say what happened.
“One minute everything was normal and
the next there was an explosion and smoke
and screams,” she said.
The girl’s 7-year-old brother is an aspir-
ing engineer who wants to design a time
machine to bring Lily back, the mother
“She was beautiful and passionate and
innocent,” the mother said, “and she
deserved so much more.”
Lily was on the minds of those who turned
up at the day care, where the gaping hole
was boarded up with plywood and a cluster of
stuffed animals, flowers and candles were
left in memoriam.
Ralph Velez, 48, left a stuffed bear from
his 5-year-old son Xavier, who goes to the
day care but was unhurt. The bear was a gift
from a few Christmases ago, and Xavier —
who can’t stop talking about the crash —
wanted to give it to honor his friends, Velez
“He’ll say, ‘stupid car, ’ or ‘stupid driver,”’
Velez said. “He told us last night that he
remembers the driver, who wasn’t hurt, get-
ting out and saying, ‘What did I do? What
did I do?”’
ORLAND — Authorities say nine people
have been killed in a three-vehicle crash
that has shut down north- and south-bound
traffic on Interstate 5.
California Highway Patrol dispatcher
Curtis Pahlka says authorities received a
report of the crash at 5:41 p. m.
Pahlka says it is not yet clear what
caused the crash but that it involved a tour
bus, a FedEx truck and a Nissan Altima.
The northbound lane of Interstate 5 was
closed at 5:46 p.m., and the southbound
lane was closed at 6:30 p.m.
No further details were immediately
available about the identities of the dead.

PITTSBURGH — The 16-year-old boy
accused of stabbing 22 people at his high
school was dazed “like a deer in the head-
lights” hours later and doesn’t fully grasp
what he did, his attorney said Thursday as he
sketched out the beginnings of a possible
mental health defense.
Deepening the mystery of what set off the
violence, attorney Patrick Thomassey said
Alex Hribal had no history of mental illness
or troublemaking, didn’t abuse drugs and was
no outcast at school, where the lawyer
described him as a B or B-plus student.
“In a case like this, it’s pretty obvious to
me that there must be something inside this
young man that nobody knew about,”
Thomassey told the Associated Press.
The local prosecutor, meanwhile, said
Hribal remained an enigma.
“We have very little information about
him,” Westmoreland County District
Attorney John Peck said, “except for the fact
that he was a student, his age, and how he was
as a student.”
Authorities seized the family’s computer as
they searched for clues to Wednesday’s ram-
page at Franklin Regional High, about 15
miles from Pittsburgh. Authorities said
Hribal armed himself with two kitchen knives
and stabbed 21 students and a security guard
before an assistant principal tackled him.
The slender, dark-haired boy who looks
younger than his years was jailed without bail
on four counts of attempted homicide and 21
counts of aggravated assault. Authorities are
prosecuting him as an adult, but Thomassey
said he will try to have the case moved to
juvenile court.
He said he plans to get his client examined
by a psychiatrist before a preliminary hear-
ing on April 30.
“I think his mental state now is unstable.
I’m not sure that he recognizes the enormity,
if that’s the word, of what has occurred,”
Thomassey said. “And I think in his own
mind he’s trying to figure out what happened
here, as we all are trying to figure out what the
heck happened here.”

WASHINGTON — House Republicans ral-
lied behind a slashing budget blueprint on
Thursday, passing a non-binding but politi-
cally imposing measure that promises a bal-
anced federal ledger in 10 years with sweep-
ing budget cuts and termination of health care
coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
The 219-205 vote on the budget outline
takes a mostly symbolic swipe at the gov-
ernment’s chronic deficits. Follow-up legis-
lation to actually implement the cuts isn’t in
the offing. Twelve Republicans opposed the
measure, and not a single Democrat support-
ed it.
The measure passed after a three-day debate
that again exposed the hugely varying
visions of the rival parties for the nation’s
fiscal future. Republicans promised a bal-
anced budget by 2024 but would do so at the
expense of poor people and seniors on
Medicaid, lower-income workers receiving
“Obamacare” subsidies, and people receiving
food stamps and Pell Grants.
Democrats countered with a plan that would
leave Obama’s health care plan and rapidly
growing health programs like Medicare
intact, relying on $1.5 trillion in tax hikes
over the coming decade to bring deficits down
to sustainable but still-large levels in the
$600 billion range.
The GOP plan, by Budget Committee
Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., would cut more
than $5 trillion over the coming decade to
reach balance by 2024, relying on sharp cuts
to domestic programs, but leaving Social
Security untouched and shifting more money
to the Pentagon and health care for veterans.
It reprises a controversial plan to shift future
retirees away from traditional Medicare and
toward a subsidy-based health insurance
option on the open market.
While staking out a hard line for the future,
follow-up legislation is likely to be limited
this year to a round of annual spending bills
that will adhere to a bipartisan budget pact
enacted in December.
But the Ryan plan does paint a picture of
what Republicans would attempt if they
claim the Senate this fall and the White
House in 2016. Its cuts to entrenched benefit
programs like Medicare and Medicaid, how-
ever, would be difficult to pass even if
Republicans gained control of both the
House and Senate in this fall’s elections.
“It’s totally out of touch with the priorities
and values of the country,” said Rep. Chris
Van Hollen, D-Md. “This is a clear road map
of what Republicans in Congress would do if
they had the power to do it.”
In a statement, White House press secretary
Jay Carney said the vote “illustrates once
again that the House Republicans’ view of
the economy is a top-down approach that
cuts taxes for millionaires and could raise
taxes on middle class families with kids.”
Republicans say the tough cuts they prom-
ise would strengthen the economy because
less government borrowing would boost sav-
ings and investment. And they say it’s sim-
ply unfair to saddle future generations with
mountains of debt.
“The sooner we tackle these fiscal prob-
lems, the better off everybody is going to be,
the faster the economy grows, and the more
we can guarantee that the next generation
inherits a debt-free future,” said Ryan.
Republicans opposing the bill were most-
ly tea party adherents such as Rep. Thomas
Massie of Kentucky, as well as several mem-
bers of the Georgia delegation who are com-
peting in a Senate primary. Ahandful of more
moderate members from the Northeast,
including Reps. Chris Gibson of New York
and Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey, also
opposed it.
At issue is the arcane congressional budget
process, which employs a nonbinding meas-
ure known as a budget resolution to set forth
goals for future taxes, spending and deficits.
But follow-up legislation is usually limited
to one-year appropriations bills. The House
Appropriations Committee has already
approved two of its least controversial bills,
those funding veterans’ programs and the
budget for Congress itself.
Senate Democrats have announced they
won’t bother with a budget plan this year,
relying on Ryan’s December pact with Senate
Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray,
D-Wash., to guide consideration of this
year’s round of appropriations bills.
Ryan’s plan revives a now-familiar list of
spending cuts to promise balance, including
$2.1 trillion over 10 years in health care sub-
sidies and coverage under the Affordable Care
Act; $732 billion in cuts to Medicaid and
other health care programs; and almost $1
trillion in cuts to other benefit programs like
food stamps, Pell Grants and farm subsidies.
The measure also promises deep, probably
unrealistic cuts to domestic programs like
education, health research and grants to local
governments that are funded each year
through annual appropriations bills.
Ryan’s plan also reprises a failed strategy
from last year to cut domestic agency operat-
ing budgets and shift the money to the
Pentagon after 2015. When Republicans
tried that last year, the House was unable to
pass the follow-up spending bills imple-
menting the cuts.

House panel votes to
hold IRS official in contempt
WASHINGTON — A House Committee
voted Thursday to hold a former Internal
Revenue Service official in contempt of
Congress for refusing to answer questions at a
pair of hearings.
The official, Lois Lerner, previously headed
the IRS division that processes applications
for tax-exempt status. Last May, after provid-
ing an opening statement, Lerner refused to
answer questions at a House Oversight
Committee hearing about IRS agents improp-
erly singling out tea party applications for
extra scrutiny. She again refused to answer
questions at hearing in March.
Lerner cited her Fifth Amendment right
against self-incrimination.
The Oversight Committee voted 21-12
Thursday to hold her in contempt. All
Republicans voted in favor and all Democrats
voted against.
Committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.,
said Lerner had effectively waived her Fifth
Amendment right not to answer questions by
providing an opening statement at the 2013
hearing. In her statement, Lerner said she did
nothing wrong, broke no laws and never lied
to Congress. “We need Ms. Lerner’s testimo-
ny to complete our oversight work,” Issa
said. “American taxpayers certainly don’t get
to plead the Fifth and escape all accountabili-
ty when the IRS audits them.”

Lawn be gone
give up. I’m at a loss. It’s
my lawn. I got with the pro-
gram during the dry January
and didn’t water it. After all, water
is at a premium with our paltry
rainfall totals. I could wear my
brown lawn like a badge of honor.
This guy gets
it, people
walking by
would say.
But since
then, we’ve had
some rain and
just enough to
keep it alive,
yet now in a
weird sort of
half-dead state.
It’s not brown, but it’s not green
either and the clover that filled in
the dead spots is now dying in the
So now I’m left with a bas-
tardized half-dead lawn monster
that needs some water. But dare I
water it? And even if I did, is it
beyond repair? At what point am I
just watering weeds and dirt?
I can’t take the plunge and
reseed it because that would take
up way too much water. I could
collect our gray water but that
seems like a project that may
start but get nowhere near com-
pletion. It would be much better if
we didn’t get any rain at all and it
would just die. But that would
mean we wouldn’t be getting any
rain and that’s not good for the
I could buy sod, but that’s
expensive and kind of defeats the
purpose since you have to water
I could transplant the amazing-
ly strong grass that grows wild in
my backyard but I have a feeling
it would also promptly half die.
I could plant native grass but
that stuff always looks super cool
at first then gets weird when it
starts to grow and die off.
Trimming it always tends to ruin
it too. Or maybe native plants
like shrubs and junipers, but that
takes some design sense and
seems like a lot of work to do it
There is always green paint,
which would likely kill the grass
and I suspect is not good for the
environment. Or turf, not fake
turf mind you, but turf, which is
fake grass. I’m not sure of the
cost, but it’s probably expensive.
So that may be off the table.
And I won’t do the lava rocks or
white granite. Just not my style
and besides, the neighborhood
dogs wouldn’t like it. Hurts their
feet. There is always the idea of a
some sort of desert landscape
with cacti and other southwest
style decor like, I don’t know,
slats of rusted metal? But I’m just
not into it.
Some have suggested planting a
garden since I have one in the
backyard, but that will take water
too. Maybe tomatoes would work
since they don’t need as much
water as say, lettuce or squash, but
mine is not the neighborhood for
such a front yard garden. I would
only end up watching my produce
walk down the street.
There is always the path of
least resistance, which is to just
let it be. Eventually it will turn
brown and I will have my badge
of honor and I won’t have to do a
darn thing.

.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry sounds frus-
trated and exhausted. No
wonder. He has shuttled time and
again to the Middle East to meet a
self-imposed late April deadline
for a “framework” that could lead
to an Israeli-Palestinian peace
But the talks are on the verge of
collapse. Let them.
“There are limits to the amount
of time and effort that the United
States can spend if the parties
themselves are unwilling to take
constructive steps in order to be
able to move forward,” Kerry told
reporters last week. We’re at
those limits.
Kerry’s warning came after
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu balked at releasing
Palestinian prisoners because, he
said, the Palestinians hadn’t
agreed to extend the negotiation
deadline past the end of this
And after the Palestinians
moved to join 15 international
conventions and agreements,
defying Israel and the United

ishly floated the possibility of
releasing convicted spy Jonathan
Pollard in a transparently desper-
ate bid to keep the Israelis at the
Last week, Kerry said the peace
process needs a “reality check.”
We’d say it also needs the United
States to substitute tough love for
denial of the obvious. What would
happen if Kerry told the Israelis
and Palestinians, Call us when
you’re ready to make the serious
compromises necessary for a deal.
Otherwise, we have pressing
issues elsewhere in the world.
Secretary Kerry, let’s say exact-
ly that.
Everyone knows the broad out-
lines of a deal — the necessary
land swaps and security arrange-
ments. And everyone knows the
formidable obstacles. The
Palestinians have failed to unite
behind a single political banner,
with Fatah and Hamas jockeying
for advantage. Hamas terrorists
rule Gaza and could veto a peace
deal with violence.
The United States may find a
way to hold the parties at the
table beyond the latest deadline.
But that just means another dead-
line will arise ... likely to be bro-
ken. The United States can’t bro-
ker a peace deal absent strong
motivation from both sides to
surmount formidable, historic
The United States has devoted
enough energy to trying, at least
for now. Whether it’s a quest for
peace in the region, or for histo-

credibility as diplomats,

ized, and ultimately disappointed,
reaching for this elusive goal.

Paying the ice rink forward
Four years ago, my then 8-year-
old son turned to me and said,
“Dad, I want to play ice hockey. ”
“Right,” I responded, “let’s
head to the ice rink to teach you
how to skate.”
There was no wondering about
where to go or how to accomplish
this because there was an ice rink
in our community at Bridgepointe
Shopping Center. Today, my son
plays competitive travel hockey
and his dad plays in an adult
I want to go back to the San
Mateo community members and
city leaders of the late ’90s and
thank them for this — they had
the foresight and fortitude to
ensure that as Fashion Island was
being transformed into
Bridgepointe, this important
community benefit would remain
to serve the city and region.
So today, it is our responsibili-
ty to fight for this skating rink,
both for the many thousands of
current users and for the multitude
of future users.
The future is calling — the cur-
rent Planning Commission and
City Council of San Mateo must
be bold, decisive and proactive in

Horsley and his salary
I agree with the the Daily
Journal editorial endorsing
Supervisor Horsley for re-election
(editorial, “Horsley for District
Three supervisor,” in the April 9
edition of the Daily Journal). He
has done an excellent job in his
first term.
However, I have to disagree
with the conclusions about his
entitlement to the supervisor
salary while drawing his pension.
I think it was commendable of
him to eschew his salary upon his
election. His later decision to
accept payment seemed duplici-
tous at the time. To his credit, he
noted the criticism and quit tak-
ing a salary. He saved the county
approximately $500,000 by not
taking the salary for most of his
first term.
Now we have a choice to vote
for him or for Michael Stogner.
After reading the interviews by
Michelle Durand, it seems clear to
me that Supervisor Horsley has a
better understanding of county
issues and how to address them.
While it’s true, taxpayers are pay-
ing for Horsley’s $200,000 pen-
sion, it doesn’t make sense to me
that he should be disallowed his
salary because of it. If Stogner is
elected, county residents will be
paying Horsley’s pension and
Stogner’s $115,000 salary.
Electing Horsley would therefore
not cost the residents any more.
Many people receive a pension
after retiring from one job and
then seek other employment.
Should they be expected to work
without pay?
Given the Daily Journal’s infer-
ence that the only reason not to
vote for Don Horsley is the salary
issue, I see no reason not to sup-
port him for re-election.

The Peninsula is home to one
of the largest concentrations of
biotechnology firms anywhere on
Earth and I believe most county
residents support the industry. It
is unfortunate that local firm
Gilead has become the poster
child for corporate greed.
When they announced the new,
more effective drug, Solvadi, to
cure Hepatitis C, there was much
jubilation and the stock price
soared. Then it was announced
they were charging $1,000 per
day and a total of $84,000.
Industry experts say there is a real
chance this will break medical
insurance pharmacy benefit s,
forcing companies to suspend
them. Consumers are already
organizing to boycott the drug as
a competing and more cost-effec-
tive drug is nearing approval and
Gilead’s stock is slumping. There
is a God, shame on Gilead.

NEW YORK — The high-flyers are
laying the stock market low — once
Investors turned against biotech,
Internet and other once-soaring stocks
on Thursday, driving the Nasdaq com-
posite index to its worst day since
The sell-off in tech names dragged
down the broader market and left all the
major U.S. indexes in the red for the
Steep declines in tech, followed by
rebounds, have become a familiar pat-
tern in the stock market in recent weeks.
After falling Monday, the Nasdaq and
other major index rallied over the next
two days. On Thursday, stocks dropped
again, led once more by biotech and
technology companies.
The slide represents a shift in investor
psychology. After chasing their huge
gains in 2013, investors are worried
that stocks like Facebook and Gilead
Sciences, which doubled last year, have
become too expensive.
And it’s not just lofty prices that have
made those sectors volatile in recent
weeks. Regulators are scrutinizing the
cost of cutting-edge biotech drugs.
Worried investors are shifting from
riskier investments to safer areas like
utilities, health care and consumer sta-
On Thursday, the Nasdaq composite
index fell 3 percent, its worst drop since
November 2011.
Few companies escaped the down-
draft. Of the Nasdaq’s 100 largest
stocks, only one, C.H. Robinson
Worldwide, a freight company, ended
Several factors likely combined to
send stocks lower, said Randy Frederick,
managing director of trading and deriva-
tives at Schwab Center for Financial
Frederick said that recent IPOs, many
of them tech and biotech companies,
have become overheated. At the same
time, the market hasn’t had a 10 percent
decline since the spring of 2012, only
smaller dips in the 4 percent and 5 per-
cent range.
“We’ve been due,” Frederick said. “We
haven’t really had a good catalyst for
one, but the quarter’s over, we have an
earnings season, we have some stocks
that are a little overheated, there’s just a
lot of small negatives that are sort of
piling together and creating this conflu-
ence of anxiety.”
The Nasdaq ended the day down
129.79 points to 4,054.11. It is now
down 7 percent from its recent high
reached March 5. Other major index also
fell, but not as much.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
dropped 39.10 points to close at
1,838.08. It is now down 2.09 percent
for the year, although it still remains
close to its all-time reached April 2. The
Dow Jones industrial average lost
266.96 points to 16,170.22. It is off
1.6 percent for 2014.
Gilead Sciences slid $5.17, or 7 per-
cent, to $65.48 on Thursday. Biogen
Idec dropped $13.33, or 4 percent, to
Frederick said it made sense that for-
mer high-flyers like biotech would have
the biggest drops “because that’s where
the risk money is, and when people get
a little spooked, they’re going to pull
out of that.”
The market’s drop wiped out gains
made earlier in the week. On Wednesday,
minutes from the Federal Reserve’s lat-
est meeting reassured investors that the
central bank wasn’t in a hurry to raise
interest rates. The S&P 500 had its best
day in a month.
The index remains near its record
high. Stocks had a huge run-up in 2013,
and are in the sixth year of a bull market.
The rally in stock prices has been
driven, in part, by the Fed’s commit-
ment to record-low interest rates. In
recent years, the Fed has aggressively
bought bonds to hold down borrowing
rates and accelerate spending, investing
and hiring.
Investors flee tech stocks again
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Thursday on the New
York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Market:
Rite Aid Corp., up 54 cents to $6.94
The drugstore is out of the recovery ward and appears ready to break into
a sprint after its sixth-straight quarterly profit.
Pier 1 Imports Inc., down 2 cents to $18.20
The home furnishings retailer’s quarterly earnings and revenue topped
Wall Street projections and it expects sales at established stores to rise.
Family Dollar Stores Inc., down $1.90 to $57.17
The bargain retailer will close 370 stores and cut jobs after reporting that
profit and revenue declined in the second quarter.
Ruby Tuesday Inc., up 72 cents to $6.68
The restaurant just edged out Wall Street profit expectations for the
quarter and revenue did not decline as badly as feared.
Hewlett-Packard Co., up 8 cents to $32.80
Wall Street is seeing profit-margin recovery at the tech company, with
Morgan Stanley raising its earnings expectations for 2015 and 2016.
Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., down $4.19 to $63.72
Weak sales drove quarterly profit down nearly 11 percent at the home
goods retailer and its outlook left investors disappointed.
PriceSmart Inc., down $11.76 to $90.13
Weak comparable-store sales overshadowed an otherwise strong quarter
at the warehouse club, which beat most profit expectations.
Automatic Data Processing Inc., down 66 cents to $75.22
The payroll processor will spin off its business that works with auto
dealerships into a separate, publicly traded company.

WASHINGTON — An Internet connection
and a bunch of stolen identities are all it
takes for crooks to collect billions of dol-
lars in bogus federal tax refunds. And the
scam is proving too pervasive to stop.
A government report released in
November said the IRS issued nearly $4 bil-
lion in fraudulent tax refunds over the previ-
ous year to thieves who were using other
people’s personal information. Attorney
General Eric Holder said this week that the
“scale, scope and execution of these fraud
schemes” has grown substantially and the
Justice Department in the past year has
charged 880 people.
Who’s involved? In a video message
released ahead of the April 15 tax filing
deadline, Holder said the scams “are carried
out by a variety of actors, from greedy tax
return preparers to identity brokers who
profit from the sale of personal information
to gangs and drug rings looking for easy
access to cash.”
Even Holder isn’t immune. Two men
pleaded guilty in Georgia last year to trying
to get a tax refund by using his name, Social
Security number and date of birth on tax
The IRS says it opened nearly 1,500 crim-
inal investigations related to identity theft
in fiscal year 2013, a 66 percent increase
over the previous year, and has strength-
ened filters that help detect where the scams
are coming from. It says it stops far more
fraudulent refunds than it pays out and is
making a dent in the problem.
Still, the schemes have grown more
sophisticated, attracting criminals with
violent backgrounds who see an easy and
safe vehicle for theft, according to law
enforcement officials who fear that not
enough controls are in place.
“I’ve been on calls with Alabama,
Chicago, some other field divisions, where
they’re now experiencing people who were
from Florida and now moving to other
states to conduct this same type of fraud,”
said FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jay
Bernardo, who works fraud cases in south
“Based on the parameters that are in place
now,” he added, “it’s very difficult to stop.”
What can taxpayers do? The most impor-
tant step: Protect their Social Security num-

Gap says key sales
measure down for March
SAN FRANCISCO — Gap Inc. said
Thursday that a key sales measure fell more
in March than the market had expected, part-
ly because of bad winter weather.
Shares of the San Francisco-based compa-
ny, which owns the Gap, Banana Republic
and Old Navy brands, fell nearly 3 percent in
after-hours trading following the announce-
Gap said its revenue for stores open at
least a year fell 6 percent. This is considered
a key indicator of a retailer’s financial per-
formance as it strips away the impact of
recently opened and closed sites. Analysts
polled by Thomson Reuters were anticipated
a drop of 4.7 percent.
The results included a 7 percent drop at its
Gap stores, 4 percent drop at Banana
Republic and 7 percent drop at Old Navy.
Gap had already warned investors that a
shift of the Easter holiday into April this
year, from March last year, would hinder its
sales for the month. The company reported
total revenue of $1.51 billion for the five-
week period that ended April 5.
Family Dollar to close
stores as shoppers pinched
NEW YORK — Dollar stores are feeling
the pinch from mounting financial pressures
on low-income shoppers.
Family Dollar said Thursday that will cut
jobs and close about 370 underperforming
stores as it tries to reverse sagging sales and
earnings. The discount store operator will
also permanently lower prices on about
1,000 basic items.
Family Dollar Inc., which operates 8,100
stores, did not provide details on how many
jobs it would cut.
The retail chain follows competitors in
highlighting the split between shoppers
who are enjoying an improving economy
and those being left behind.
Dollar General, the nation’s largest dol-
lar-store chain with about 11,100 locations,
offered a weak profit outlook last month
after reporting weak fourth-quarter sales.
Google to sell Glass to
bigger pool of consumers
SAN FRANCISCO — A lot more people
are about to get a chance to buy Google
Glass, the Internet-connected eyewear that
has become the hottest accessory in geek
Google will sell the “Explorer” version of
Glass to any U.S. resident who places an
online order for the device beginning at 9
a.m. PDT April 15. The product will cost
$1,500, the same price that Google Inc. has
charged for Glass since sales of the device
began last year, the company said Thursday.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — No nerves. No worries.
Adam Scott never knew the opening round
at Augusta National could be so enjoyable.
With his green jacket upstairs in the lock-
er room for Masters champions, Scott made
only one bad swing that cost him two shots
in a round of 3-under 69. It was the lowest
opening score by a defending champion in
13 years, and it left Scott one shot behind
leader Bill Haas on an otherwise demanding
“It was really how you
hope to come out and
play at any major, and
especially the Masters,”
Scott said. “And there’s
no doubt winning the
Masters last year had me a
little more comfortable
on the first tee than I’ve
ever been in the past,
because I didn’t have the
legs shaking and nerves jangling for six or
seven holes like usual.”
Haas, with a rich family history at
Augusta that includes a green jacket for his
great uncle Bob Goalby, settled down after
an opening bogey with a collection of good
birdie putts and an 8-iron to 5 feet for birdie
on the 18th for a 68.
It was the first time in 18 majors that Haas
has had the lead after any round. That only
gets him a crystal vase for the low round of
the day at the Masters. Haas knows better
than to put too much stock into what hap-
pens Thursday. He was leading after the
opening round in Houston last week and tied
for 37th.
“There’s tons of golf left,” he said.
Only one first-round leader in the last 30
years has gone on to win the Masters.
Former Masters champion Bubba Watson,
who slipped that green jacket on Scott last
year, played his first bogey-free round in a
major since the 2009 U.S. Open and shot a
69. So did Louis Oosthuizen, whom Watson
beat in a playoff at Augusta.
They were the only players to break 70,
the fewest for an opening round at the
Masters since 2007.
“No one is really going crazy out there in

MIAMI — Three NFLplayers are named in a
police report involving a woman who passed
out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital
not knowing how she got there, though no
one has been charged with a crime, authorities
said Thursday.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin
Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton,
and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo
Lockette, were with the woman at a Miami
hotel where Lockette lives,
according to the Miami
Police Department report.
Police stressed that the
report contained only
unproven allegations at
this point.
“As far as whether there
was a crime committed, it’s
too early to say,” said
police spokeswoman
Kenia Reyes.
The account of the woman, who was not
identified by police, is described in the report:
The woman mixed drinks and gave the men
shots, and the men told her “in order to drink
the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which con-
tained marijuana.”
The four were watching a basketball game
when the woman began feeling light-headed
and went to lie down in a bedroom. Kaepernick
came into the room, began kissing her and
undressed her completely. The woman told
police that they did not have sex, and that
Kaepernick left the bedroom saying he’d be
right back.
Afew minutes later, the woman told police,
the other two men “peeked” inside. She said to
them, “What are you doing? Where is Colin?
Get out.”
The report says the woman does not remem-
ber anything after that and later woke up in a
hospital room with no memory of how she got
The woman told police she has had a sexual
relationship with Kaepernick in the past.

Four years ago, tennis coach Rich de Leon
was approached about starting a boys’ ten-
nis team at Capuchino.
As Cap only had a girls’ team at the time,
of which de Leon was at the helm, the veter-
an coach was speculative of starting a boys’
program — until, that is, he got a look at
sophomore Mark Kauffman.
So, de Leon agreed to coach the upstart
boys’ tennis team. Kauffman served as the
No. 1 singles player for three seasons until
graduating last year and was rewarded by

Capuchino catcher RamonEnriquez tags out Sequoia’s Chris Ortiz during the Cherokees’ 5-4 win over the Mustangs in a key PAL Ocean
Division game Thursday afternoon in SanBruno.
By Terry Bernal
Sequoia knew it had a top-heavy schedule
in opening Peninsula Athletic League Ocean
Division play against its three biggest con-
tenders in the first four weeks.
And after starting the year 1-3 in league,
including a sweep against a dangerous
Hillsdale squad, things weren’t looking so
good for the Cherokees.
Oh, how the tide has turned.
With a 5-4 win at Capuchino Thursday,
second-place Sequoia (5-3 in Ocean
Division, 11-3-1 overall) has won four
straight to catapult into second place.
Paired with first-place Hillsdale’s 7-0 loss
to Kings Academy Thursday, the Cherokees
now trail the Knights by mere percentage
points in the Ocean Division race.
Before embarking on the four-game win-
ning streak, Sequoia manager Corey Uhalde
gave a motivational speech telling his
players to look to the future. It turned out to
be one effective speech.
“I told them the narrative of the story has
yet to be written,” Uhalde said. “It’s going
to be about how you bounce back from
[opening league play 1-3]. I thought if we
came out of these two weeks at 3-1 it would
be a pretty good showing. So, to get two
from El Camino and now two from Cap … I
would describe the feeling as relief.”
After rattling off a pair of shutouts against
El Camino then a third consecutive shutout
with a 4-0 win over Capuchino (3-3, 13-6)
Tuesday, the Cherokees had to grind out a
comeback win Thursday.

first set 6-2, but Miller flipped the tables
and won the second set by the same score. In
the first-to-10-points third set, Fratt pre-
vailed, 10-6.
The No. 1 singles match also went three
sets, with Burlingame’s Scott Taggart rally-
ing from a one-set deficit to beat Scott
Morris 4-6, 6-4, (10-7).
Aragon 6, San Mateo 1
The Dons moved into a second-place tie
with Carlmont with their easy victory over
the Bearcats Thursday.
Aragon’s four singles players — Devon
Hughes, Isaac Wang, Jonathon Liu and
Mathew Fowler — all won in straight sets,
combining to lose just 11 games.
San Mateo picked up its point with a win
at No. 3 doubles, where Lucas Yeh and Kevin
Fang won in three sets, 7-5, 3-6, (12-10).
Menlo School 7, Pinewood 0
The Knights continue to run roughshod
through the West Bay Athletic League, win-
ning their 11th in a row this season.
Menlo (11-0 WBAL, 16-3 overall) won
five of the six matches in straight sets, los-
ing just 19 games over 12 sets. Menlo won
the No. 3 doubles match by default.
Half Moon Bay 5, Westmoor 2
The Cougars improved to 9-0 in Peninsula
Athletic League Ocean Division play with a
victory over Westmoor Thursday.
Half Moon Bay won three of the four sin-
gles matches and two of three doubles
matches. Drew Davison cruised at No. 1 sin-
gles, losing only one game in a 6-1, 6-0
win. Gabe Pizzolato won his No. 2 singles
match, 6-3, 6-2.
Westmoor picked up its wins at No. 3 sin-
gles, where Nathan Wu won 6-3, 7-5. The
Rams’ other win came at No. 3 doubles, with
Wai Phyo and Brian Chau posting a 6-3, 6-1

The Hillsdale softball team kept the heat
on in the Peninsula Athletic League Bay
Division race with a 5-2 win at Capuchino
The Knights (4-2 in Bay Division, 11-3
overall) sent nine batters to the plate in the
third inning in which they scored all their
runs after two were out. Riley Wells sparked
the outburst with a two-out walk, starting a
carousel of six straight Hillsdale batters
reaching base.
After Wells walked, junior Bailey Nestor
singled, junior Kelly Miller reached on an
error to score Wells, junior Kara Ronberg
singled to score Nestor and sophomore
Arianna Richwood reached on an error to
score Miller. Then junior shortstop Meagan
Wells punctuated the rally with a booming
two-run double to plate Ronberg and
The big rally was an immediate response
to Cap (2-3, 9-7) scoring two runs in the
previous half inning.
“We’re sort of the comeback kids,” said
Meagan Wells, who entered the game hit-
ting .353 and now paces the Knights with
five doubles. “Whenever we get down we
don’t give up. We never give up. We never
stop pushing to our full potential.”
Knights right-hander Eryn McCoy earned
the win with her fourth complete game of
the year. The loss was charged to Cap right-
hander Rafaela Dade. All five runs surren-
dered by Dade were unearned. However, it
was the sophomore’s two errors that opened
the door for the Knights’ comeback rally.
“We gave it away,” Cap head coach Todd
Grammatico said. “We should have won it 2-
0 … 2-1 at the most.”
Grammatico expressed absolute faith in
his sophomore right-hander nonetheless.
“[Dade] has been excellent,” he said. “She
did a good job today. She was our pitcher
last year as a freshman. She is like a hundred
percent (better) over last year. As hard as
she works, I expect her to improve every
year. … By her senior year she’ll probably
be one of the best pitchers in the league.”
Hillsdale has been getting some serious
results from its starting pitching tandem of
McCoy and junior Tori Pierucci. Wi t h
Thursday’s win, McCoy improves 7-2.
Pierucci is currently 4-2. And the duo rolled
at the Wilcox Invitational Tournament at
Mission College Saturday to pace the
Knights to a 3-1 record.
“I personally think both of them haven’t
progressed like I want them to,” Hillsdale
head coach Randy Metheany. “But if you

MINNEAPOLIS — By the time Dan Straily took the mound
for the second inning, he knew he just didn’t have it.
His velocity nowhere to be found, the 25-year-old right-
hander took the next step in his maturation process by grit-
ting his teeth, focusing on location and changing speeds
over anything flashy and shutting down the Minnesota
Straily pitched three-hit ball for seven innings and Sam
Fuld hit a rare home run to help the
Oakland Athletics complete a three-game
sweep with a 6-1 victory Thursday.
“It’s part of learning from the past, from
last year,” said Straily (1-1), who gave up
one run and struck out five. “On days when
I didn’t have my best stuff, I would try to
pitch like I did and it would cost me. After
the second inning, I realized I didn’t have
my ‘A’ stuff in my arm today. So it was
just a matter of mixing speeds and keep-
ing everybody off balance.
The Athletics’ rotation has opened the season with nine
straight starts allowing
three runs or less and
has compiled a 1.93
ERAin 56 innings.
“They’ve done a great
job. So far, so good,”
Josh Donaldson said of
the rotation. “Can’t
really complain about
what they’ve done.
That’s what we expect
from them.”
Fuld hit just his sixth
homer in 738 career
plate appearances and
singled. Donaldson had
a two-run homer and an
RBI single for the
Athletics (6-3).
Mike Pelfrey (0-2)
gave up six runs on nine
hits and four walks in
five innings. The Twins
have had only one qual-
ity start in their first
nine games.
Brian Dozier hit his
third home run of the
season for Minnesota.
Straily was selected in
the 24th round of the
2009 draft, just another
in the seemingly end-
less line of young,
strong starting pitchers
churned out by Billy
Beane’s Moneyball
Last year he led all ALrookies in starts, innings and strike-
outs, and he brushed off the early homer to Dozier to slow
down the Twins for the rest of the game. He allowed two
baserunners — both on walks — over his final five innings
“It wasn’t his best velocity,” manager Bob Melvin said.
“He was throwing basically 87 mph today. But he’s always
got that slider in his pocket. He threw a few more changeups
today and a few more curveballs, so he kept them off balance
more than he typically pitches.”
Pelfrey had no such luck, laboring through another poor
outing for Minnesota’s starting rotation. Donaldson’s
homer in the third inning put him behind 3-1 and he walked
No. 9 hitter Nick Punto in the fourth before Fuld yanked a
pitch just over the wall in right field for a 5-1 lead.
“I think all the way around, I was terrible today,” Pelfrey
NOTES: The announced attendance of 20,650 was the
smallest in Target Field history. ... Umpires reviewed a play
in the sixth inning in which Jed Lowrie was thrown out at
home by Twins CF Aaron Hicks. Umpires were looking to
see if C Josmil Pinto was illegally blocking the plate. The
call of an out was confirmed. ... The Athletics head to Seattle
for a series against the Mariners. LHP Tommy Milone will
make his first start of the season on Friday night against
Mariners RHP Felix Hernandez (2-0, 1.88).
A’s sweep Twins for
fourth win in a row
MINNEAPOLIS — The Oakland Athletics brought Jim
Johnson into their bullpen when they lost All-Star closer
Grant Balfour in free agency.
Two weeks into the season, Johnson
is 0-2 with an 18.90 ERAand one blown
save in five appearances for the
Athletics. Manager Bob Melvin could-
n’t afford to wait while the former
Orioles closer got into a groove, remov-
ing him from that role on Thursday.
Melvin will proceed with a closer-by-
committee approach.
“There’s no timetable,” Melvin told
A’s beat writers before the team played
their series finale against the Minnesota
Twins. “Let’s just get him straightened out. And we have
plenty of options. That’s the good thing about our team,
our versatility. We’ll play it by ear based on how the
game’s going, who’s available on that particular day. ”
He’s allowed at least two runs in three of his five appear-
ances, his seven total runs allowed is tied for the most in
the AL among relievers. He’s allowed more walks and hits
than any other reliever in the league.
It’s a far cry from the dominant reliever who saved 50
games for the Orioles last season, tied with Atlanta’s Craig
Kimbrel for the most in the majors. The A’s were in the
market when Balfour, who had 38 saves last year to help
Oakland win its second straight AL West title, signed with
the Tampa Bay Rays over the winter.
Johnson is making $10 million and will be a free agent
at the end of this season, but the A’s can take heart that he
has recovered from similar funks before to post solid sea-
sons. Last year, he was charged with three losses and four
of his nine total blown saves during a tough six-game
stretch in the middle of May. He allowed 12 runs over five
innings in that stretch, but posted a 1.52 ERAin his other
69 appearances.
Oakland will use Dan Otero, Ryan Cook, Luke Gregorson
and Sean Doolittle in save situations, depending on the

OAKLAND — Kenneth Faried made a turn-
around hook shot over Draymond Green with
a half-second remaining, and the Denver
Nuggets made Golden State wait at least one
more game to secure a playoff berth with a
stunning 100-99 win over the Warriors on
Thursday night.
Stephen Curry’s floater over Faried put the
Warriors up 99-98 with 4.7 seconds to play,
sending the announced sellout crowd of
19,596 roaring to their feet. Faried quieted
fans moments later, backing down Green for
the winning shot.
Curry’s quick 30-footer rimmed off as time
Timofey Mozgov tied a career high of 23
points and set a career best with 29 rebounds,
and Faried finished with 18 points and 17
boards to rally the Nuggets from 20 points
down in the first half. Denver, which had lost
six straight on the road, won both games at
Golden State this season.
Curry had 24 points and seven assists, and
Klay Thompson scored 21 points to high-
light an otherwise disappointing perform-
ance by the Warriors. The Nuggets outre-
bounded Golden State 63-38 and made all the
big plays late.
Mozgov made a step-back jumper from 17
feet before Darrell Arthur’s 3-pointer gave
the Nuggets an 83-80 lead — their first lead
of the game — with 7:52 left.
After going down by five, Thompson and
Curry highlighted an 8-0 spurt to put the
Warriors up 93-90. Randy Foye followed
with a layup and a 3-pointer to put the
Nuggets in front.
Thompson missed a jumper, then Faried
stole a rebound from Andrew Bogut and put it
back for a layup that extended Denver’s lead
to 97-93. Curry came back with two free
throws before Faried made 1 of 2 from the
Curry forced another foul and made both
free throws shots to slice Denver’s lead to
98-97 with 35.9 seconds left. Following
another Nuggets miss, Curry came off a
screen from Green and floated a go-ahead run-
ner over Faried with 4.7 seconds left that
seemingly put the Warriors in the playoffs.
Instead, the Nuggets called timeout and
went right after the undersized Green, who
has been starting at power forward for the
injured David Lee. Faried backed Green down
and floated in a hook shot that silenced the
blue-and-gold clad crowd for good.
The Warriors were trying to clinch a spot
in the playoffs in consecutive years for the
first time since the 1990-91 and 1991-92
seasons and improve their playoff position.
Instead, Golden State (48-30) fell 2 1/2
games behind fifth-place Portland with four
games to play, including one at the Trail
Blazers on Sunday. Golden State is 1 1/2
games ahead of Phoenix and Dallas and two
ahead of Memphis.
Denver, which was eliminated in Game 6 of
the opening round of the playoffs at Golden
State last season, made sure they didn’t have
to watch the Warriors celebrate against them
on the same floor again.
With injuries sideling six Nuggets regu-
lars, the Warriors overwhelmed Denver’s dec-
imated team at the start to go ahead by 20
points in the second quarter. But the Nuggets
came back behind Mozgov and Faried, trail-
ing Golden State 53-43 at the half and 75-73
through three quarters before holding off the
warriors in the fourth.
NOTES: The Warriors missed a chance to
win 49 games for the first time since winning
50 in the 1993-94 season. ... Lee missed his
seventh straight game for the Warriors with a
nerve injury in his right hamstring/back.
The team said there’s no timetable for his
return. ... Denver is 2-1 against the Warriors
this season. The teams meet in the regular-
season finale Wednesday at Denver.

the current squad — Adam Magni, Nate
Andaya, Nathan Villavicencio, Jhon
Simon, Roy Zabala, Probhjot Randhawa,
Max Heikel and Miguel Salazar — seven of
them have come full-circle since playing as
freshmen on the inaugural team of 2011.
It has been a rough year for the Mustangs,
posting a 1-11 overall record and a 1-9
record in Peninsula Athletic League Ocean
Division play. Their lone win came March
20 at South City.
Still, de Leon credits the Cap boys for
being the biggest showing in the program’s
four years. And he said they don’t lack for
desire, as evidenced by how they responded
earlier this year when arriving to practice
only to find the gates locked.
“They climb the fence,” de Leon said. “I

And if you don’t tell them to go home, they
keep playing.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Tony Campana hit
an RBI single with two outs in the 10th
inning to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to
their first back-to-back wins of the season
with a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco
Giants on Thursday night.
Cliff Pennington had two RBIs and scored
the winning run for the Diamondbacks, who
won the final two games of the series. Miguel
Montero also drove in two runs for Arizona.
Michael Morse hit a two-run double that
gave the Giants the lead, but an error by third
baseman Pablo Sandoval allowed the tying
run to score in the eighth and San Francisco
fell in extra innings to lose their first home
series since last August against Boston.
Pennington hit a one-out single off
Yusmeiro Petit (0-1) in the 10th and then
stole second base on a 2-2 pitch to Campana
with two outs. Campana then blooped a sin-
gle just over the outstretched glove of sec-
ond baseman Brandon Hicks to score the
go-ahead run.
J.J. Putz (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth
for the win and Addison Reed got three outs
for his third save in as many chances.
The Diamondbacks failed to score in the
seventh after loading the bases with no
outs, but got the tying run an inning later
on Sandoval’s bad throw.
With runners on first and second and two
outs in the eighth, Campana hit a slow
grounder to Sandoval, who rushed his throw
to first. The ball sailed over Brandon Belt’s
head allowing Gerardo Parra to score the
tying run from second.
The Giants held a pregame ceremony hon-
oring their former home, Candlestick Park,
which is set to be torn down later this year.

perfect, perfect conditions,” Graeme
McDowell said after fighting to salvage a
But there was something about the way
Scott played that grabbed most of the atten-
tion on such a gorgeous spring day in the
South. Golf has been waiting for a star to
take control all year, even more without
Tiger Woods at Augusta for the first time in
20 years because of back surgery.
Scott was in control of his emotions and
his game all day — except for once.
Walking over to the heart of Amen
Corner, the fans behind the 12th tee rose in
unison to cheer the champ.
“The memory that will stick with me for-
ever today was walking up to the 12th tee
and everyone getting out of their seats as I
approached there,” Scott said. “It was great,
the level of respect that everyone has for
this golf tournament and what happens
“But then,” he said with a smile, “I went
and hit it in the water. ”
Scott’s tee shot bounced off the front
slope and into Rae’s Creek — amazingly, he
said it was his first shot into the water on
that hole — and he made double bogey to
fall out of the outright lead. He picked up a
birdie on the 14th, and three-putted for par
on both the par 5s on the back nine.
Still, there were few complaints.
Augusta National officials knew this
would be a gentle day of weather, and it was
clear they made sure the course was any-
thing but that. The hole locations were
severe for an opening round. With endless
sunshine, the greens became firmer and
quicker by the hour.
So many others paid the price.
Jason Dufner took a quadruple-bogey 9 on
the 13th hole with only one penalty shot.
The worst of his woes was a wedge from the
drop area that didn’t even make it to the
creek. He wound up with an 80 in his first
round in a major since winning the PGA
Championship last summer.
He was in good company. Phil Mickelson
had a pair of 7s on his card for the first time
in five years at a major, and his 76 matched
the highest opening round at Augusta for the
three-time Masters champion. U.S. Open
champion Justin Rose shot 40 on the front
and scrambled for a 76.
Jason Day had a 75 in his first event in six
Vijay Singh also opened with a 69 when
he was the defending champion in 2001, but
that was different. Conditions were easier
that year, and Singh was four shots behind.
On this day, only 19 players broke par.
Jimmy Walker, Kevin Stadler and Jonas
Blixt — among the record 24 newcomers to
the Masters — were in the group at 70. The
group at 71 included young (20-year-old
Jordan Spieth) and old (54-year-old Fred
Couples), and a former No. 1 in Rory π.
“It was just on one of those days it was
tough to get it close to the hole,” McIlroy
said. “Anything under par today was a good
And it felt even better when one of those
scores belonged to a Masters champion —
in this case, two of them. Watson was asked
about his comfort level at Augusta.
“The comfort level is knowing you have a
green jacket already,” he said.

year,” Lopiparo said. “We knew two runs
wasn’t too much and we could come back
from that.”
Sequoia senior Kenney Belanger earned
the win in relief to improve to 3-1.
Martinucci took the loss, dropping the jun-
ior right-hander to 3-2.
The Cherokees jumped out to a 2-0 lead
early with single runs in the third and
fourth. In the third, Liam Finn got things
started with a leadoff single. He moved to
second on a single by Matt Lopez and the
two advanced on a balk by Capuchino
starter Joe Galea. Lopez then scored on a
wild pitch to give Sequoia a 1-0 lead.
In the fourth, Sequoia junior Antonio
Arellano singled to start the inning.
Gonzalo Rodriguez followed with a long
double to left-center, allowing Arellano to
score all the way from first base to stake the
Cherokees to a 2-0 lead.
But Capuchino went large in the bottom
of the fourth. Facing Sequoia starting pitch-
er Cameron Greenough, Anthony Orcholski
got things started with a double to right.
Samuel Caliz followed with a sacrifice bunt
attempt that went for an infield single, mov-
ing Orcholski to third. With one out, Riley
Gibbons reached on an infield error, allow-
ing Orcholski to score. With two outs, Kyle
Patterson was hit by a pitch to load the
bases and ending Greenough’s afternoon.
With Belanger on in relief, Rory McDaid
greeted the senior right-hander with a bases-
clearing double to give Cap a 4-2 lead.
But Sequoia answered right back in a two-
run fifth. Lopez started the rally with a one-
out walk. After a single by Clifford put run-
ners at first and second, cleanup hitter Zane
Gelphman drove a double to left-center to
score Lopez and Clifford to tie it 4-4.
In the top of the sixth, the junior
Lopiparo — just into the game as a late-
inning replacement — reached base as the
eventual winning run with a booming triple
to left. Chris Ortiz reached on a hit by pitch
then stole second. After Lopiparo scored on
the strikeout-wild pitch, Ortiz also tried to
score on an ensuing wild pitch but was
throw out on a bang-bang play at the plate.
Cap looked to tie it up in the bottom of
the sixth. After a one-out single by Galea,
Ramon Enriquez drove a double to left-cen-
ter that would have scored Galea easily. But
the ball carried to the paved walkway in deep
left field for a ground-rule double, forcing
Galea to remain at third base. Cap went on
to strand the would-be tying and go-ahead
runs in scoring position.
“It’s always tough (to lose), especially
when you’re playing good baseball,”
Capuchino manager Matt Wilson said.
“Today we actually played good ball except
for a couple mistakes.”
At 13-6 overall, Cap owns the most wins
of any team throughout the PAL. Sequoia
has won at a better rate than any team in the
PAL with a .767 winning percentage.

Man” with blood cocktails, an ode
to hipsterism through the ages, a
mainline shot of cool and a playful
tribute to artistic fetishism, Jim
Jarmusch’s vampire romance
“Only Lovers Left Alive” is an
addictive mood and tone piece, a
nocturnal reverie that incidentally
celebrates a marriage that has last-
ed untold centuries. Almost noth-
ing happens in this minor-key drift
through a desolate, imperiled mod-
ern world, and yet it is the perenni-
al downtown filmmaker’s best
work in many years, probably since
1995’s “Dead Man,” with which it
shares a sense of quiet, heady, per-
ilous passage.
Vampire stories come in all
shapes and sizes and the blessed
and afflicted couple here is well-
dressed, madly sophisticated, has
impeccable taste in music and liter-
ature (the couple’s closest friend is
Christopher Marlowe) and is still in
love like newlyweds. The woman’s
younger sister considers them con-
descending snobs, but perhaps
that’s just a negative way of
acknowledging that, given hun-
dreds of years of years of exposure
to art and culture, one would be a
fool not to have developed a high
level of discrimination in such mat-
Adam (Tom Hiddleston) has
become quite the recluse. Holed up
in an old house in an abandoned
part of Detroit, he plays vinyl clas-
sics and collects rare vintage gui-
tars brought to him by roadie type
Ian (Anton Yelchin). In the not
quite as depopulated streets of
Tangier, Eve (Tilda Swinton) seeks
out Marlowe (John Hurt), whose
Shakespeare connection is bandied
about. More to the point, however,
is his value as a source of “the good
stuff” — purified blood their kind
can reliably consume now that
human — aka “zombie” — blood
‘Only Lovers’ is addictive
By Jake Coyle
NEW YORK — It’s tempting to
think of Jim Jarmusch’s high-stand-
ing white hair as the mark of a light-
ning bolt that struck him long ago,
leaving him forever an eager receiver
for the electricity of inspiration.
“My antennae are always up. If
something moves me, I want it to be
part of me,” he says, wringing the
middle of his shirt. “I want it to be
mine, whether it’s 17th century
English music or if it is punk rock or
if it is Outside jazz or if it is Flaubert
and Balzac or if it is David Foster
Wallace or even if it is (crime novel-
ist) Richard Stark.”
He goes on, adding silent movies,
cartoons of the Fleischer brothers,
Dante. It’s merely a tiny sampling. “I
just collect and collect,” he says, ges-
turing to his scribble-filled notebook,
which he left open to occasionally
reference during a recent midtown
It’s the same spirit — the nourish-
ment of art and culture — that per-
vades Jarmusch’s latest film, “Only
Lovers Left Alive,” a deadpan tale of
the undead. Tilda Swinton and Tom
Hiddleston star as chic, long-living
vampires who, though deeply in love,
are currently living separately, in
Detroit and Tangier.
The film bears none of the usual
genre conventions. They drink blood
from sherry glasses, blissfully drop-
ping out as if from a heroin high. But
mostly, Jarmusch’s languorous vam-
pires (who were inspired by Mark
Twain’s “The Diaries of Adam and
Eve”) are vessels for taking a broad

Nestle’s ‘Honestly Good’line that boasts of natural ingredients and offers more generous servings
at about 390 calories per box, rather than the 300 calories for regular Lean Cuisine meals.
By Candice Choi
NEW YORK — Obsessing over calories
alone has left dieters with an empty feeling.
The calorie counting that defined dieting
for so long is giving way to other consider-
ations, like the promise of more fiber or nat-
ural ingredients. That is chipping away at
the popularity of products like Diet Coke,
Lean Cuisine and Special K, which became
weight-watching staples primarily by strip-
ping calories from people’s favorite foods.
Part of the problem: “Low-calorie” foods
make people feel deprived. Now, people
want to lose weight while still feeling satis-
fied. And they want to do it without foods
they consider processed.
Kelly Pill has been dieting since her son
was born in 1990. But the 54-year-old resi-
dent of Covina, Calif., made changes to her
approach in recent years. She doesn’t eat
Lean Cuisine microwavable meals as often
because she doesn’t find them that filling.
She also switched to Greek yogurt last year
to get more protein.
“Regular yogurt is really thin,” Pill said.
“It was low in calories, but it wasn’t fil l-
It’s not that people don’t care about calo-
ries anymore. Nutrition experts still say
weight loss comes down to burning more
calories than you eat.
But dieters are sick of foods that provide
only fleeting satisfaction and seem to make
them hungrier. The new thinking is that eat-
ing foods with more protein or fat keeps
will make dieters less likely to binge later,
even if they’re higher in calories.
“People are recognizing that it’s not
enough to just go on a diet and lose weight.
Nutrition comes more into play,” said
Margo Wootan, director of nutrition policy
at the Center for Science in the Public
Interest, a health advocacy group.
Many top brands are trying to keep up
with the trend:
• Special K cereal’s sales are down 7 per-
cent in the past two years, according to IRI,
a market research firm based in Chicago.
Kellogg last year rolled out “Special K
Nourish” hot cereals that tout a blend of
grains such as quinoa and barley. AKellogg
executive noted at the time that people are
looking for nutritional benefits rather than
just reduced calories.
• Nestle’s Lean Cuisine saw a 27 percent
drop in sales in the past four years, accord-
ing to IRI. So the company introduced an
“Honestly Good” line that boasts of natural
ingredients and offers more generous serv-
ings at about 390 calories per box, rather
than the 300 calories for regular Lean
Cuisine meals.
Dieters move past calories, food makers follow
Friday • April 11, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
look at humanity. They’re first-hand wit-
nesses to history, reveling in all its accom-
plishments (from Christopher Marlowe to
Motown) and despairing at its failings (the
low stature of science).
Adam, morose and clad in black, collects
instruments and makes music with analog
equipment (supplied by Jarmusch’s band,
Squrl). Eve, creamy and white, fills her suit-
case with books, from “Don Quixote” to
the drawings of Basquiat. They may be
undead, but Adam and Eve — you might call
them hipsters — are pulsing with excite-
ment for the glories of literature, music,
philosophy, architecture and science —
much like Jarmusch.
“I have really tried to chart my life to
have as much time as I could to investigate
interesting things because I feel it’s my
job,” he says. “When I was young and had
the great chance to spend some time with
Nicholas Ray, he said to me several times:
‘Making films is not just about studying
cinema. It’s about everything.”’
Jarmusch, 61, a New York icon and a god-
father to the independent cinema of the
1980s and 1990s, might seem a cool, aus-
tere figure, often hidden behind shades. But
in conversation, he’s eager to connect,
sweetly sincere in his baritone voice about
the things that move him. He strives to
watch a film a day, but laments that he’s
only up to about 50 so far this year.
He became such a sponge, he says, grow-
ing up in the suburbs of Akron, Ohio,
thanks to his mother (a film critic before he
was born) and his grandmother (who gave
him Proust when he was 16). They were
“open to many things,” he says.
When he arrived in New York in the
1970s to study poetry at Columbia, further
awakenings followed: riffling through used
vinyl at record stores, rummaging at the
Stand bookstore, spending nights at East
Village music clubs. He became part of the
same New York as Lou Reed, Andy Warhol
and Patti Smith
From his first, micro-budget film,
“Permanent Vacation,” to his more recent
“The Limits of Control,” his films have
always had their own distinct, laconic
rhythm and raw minimalism. Travel is
often a stimulating force of drama.
Nighttime (like the nocturnal cab-ride
vignettes of “Night on Earth”) feels like
the natural habitat for the usually black-
clad Jarmusch.
He hopes that “Only Lovers Left Alive”
serves as a kind of epitaph to the beauty of
life: “I’m not an end-of-the-world guy, but I
do think we don’t have much time left,” he
Though Jarmusch remains continually
enthralled by cinema, the increasing hard-
ships of film financing and distribution,
he says, “sucks big time.” It took him
seven years to get “Only Lovers” made. He
was also coerced into shooting on digital
for the first time and, to save money, film-
ing partly on a soundstage in Germany. “I
felt like a wolf being domesticated,” he
“I can’t just play their game anymore,”
says Jarmusch. “I’ve had it, really. And I
don’t want to make another film under the
circumstances I made ‘Lovers Left Alive.”’
Instead, Jarmusch has been making music
more lately, which, he says, “allow expres-
sion to come out of me.” Among the many
projects he’s juggling is a musical theater
piece about the inventor Nikola Tesla.
And though Jarmusch will always be firm-
ly identified with New York’s once-gritty
Lower East Side, he now spends much of his
time amid nature at his remote house in the
Catskills. He calls himself an amateur
mycologist and an aspiring bird-watcher.
“I had chipmunks that I fed for a while
that — I never touched them — but they
would walk on me,” says Jarmusch. “They
were so familiar. I’d come outside and they
would sit right next to me. Just hanging
out. Not afraid of me. They know I’m that
white-haired guy that brings them food.”

has become dangerously contaminated.
This represents an unambiguous drug
addiction reference, to be sure, but it also
casts these vampires as an endangered
species and, increasingly, as potential trag-
ic figures, avatars of cultivation, sophisti-
cation and monogamous devotion that put
average humans to shame but may be
doomed now that their food supply has been
ruined. For his part, Adam sometimes
receives “good stuff” from a medical facility
supplier, Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright).
When, at the 40-minute point, Eve returns
to Adam in Detroit, there is instant rapture,
a perpetuation of the presumed longest love
affair in the world (a photo documents their
third wedding, in 1868). With the spirited
Eve the driving force in the relationship
more than the laid-back Adam, the two
British-accented connoisseurs loll around
the house, listen to great music, drink great
blood, speak about old acquaintances (Lord
Byron, Mary Wollstonecraft), are looked
down upon by a photo gallery of artistic
heroes (Buster Keaton, Mark Twain) and
take a nighttime tour in Adam’s old Jaguar
coupe of decimated Detroit.
To Adam’s irritation, they are soon joined
by Eve’s wild girl imp of a sister, Ava (Mia
Wasikowska), whose reckless vampiric
ways so disrupt their domestic tranquility
that the couple decides to decamp back to
Tangier, where Eve can count on a continued
supply of good stuff. When this is compro-
mised, a thimble of doubt and suspense
enters the equation, as the ancient pair con-
template their fate. Will this be the end, or
might they actually have to deign to
descend from their tower of refinement and
rejoin the hunt?
Swinton is quite wonderful and unusually
accessible here in a generous, emotional,
tender performance. With a recessive part-
ner mostly devoted to interior experiences,
Eve must do most of the work to animate
their relationship and Swinton, wearing
long, nearly platinum-blond hair, gives
herself to this enterprise without going
over the top. Hiddleston, with the long-
haired look of a rock star, is required to be
far more withdrawn but is a credible bohemi-
an for the ages. Wasikowska supplies antic,
intentionally grating abandon as the dan-
gerous sister, Yelchin is sweet as Adam’s
flunky and Hurt presents his 16th century
playwright as a crusty old wise man.
Physically and musically, the film is love-
l y.
“Only Lovers Left Alive,” a Sony Pictures
Classic release, is rated R by the Motion
Picture Association of America for “lan-
guage and brief nudity.” Running time: 123

most famous and influential artists of his
age, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) made the
human body his primary subject. He recog-
nized that the hand was among the most
powerful vehicles for communicating emo-
tion and over the course of his career mod-
eled dozens, many of which betray the pres-
ence of specific medical syndromes. Dr.
James Chang fell in love with the Rodin
Sculpture Garden at Stanford as an under-
graduate. Later, while training in plastic
and reconstructive surgery at the Stanford
University School of Medicine, his fasci-
nation grew as Dr. Chang saw signs in
Rodin’s anatomical sculptures of the med-
ical conditions he was learning to identify.
Now, as a teacher, Dr. Chang injects his
enthusiasm for this art into his undergradu-
ate seminar “Surgical Anatomy of the Hand:
From Rodin to Reconstruction.” His stu-
dents use advanced technology to study
Rodin’s sculptures of hands. Three-dimen-
sional scans of the sculptures combined
with CT scans of patients’ bones, nerves
and blood vessels create a new “augmented
reality” that reveals the pathologies
beneath the bronze and even allows stu-
dents to perform virtual surgery.
Now, at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford
University, museum visitors can experi-
ence Rodin’s hands in much the same man-
ner as Dr. Chang’s students do. Inside
Rodin’s Hands: Art, Technology and
Surgery reveals what lies “beneath the
skin” of the bronze hands — the underlying
anatomy that Dr. Chang imagined when he
encountered the sculptures at the Cantor —
through the use of augmented reality. By
rotating an iPad in an arc around three of
Rodin’s hand sculptures, visitors can see
computer-generated graphics of bones,
nerves and blood vessels from varying
Cantor Director Connie Wolf said: “The
exhibition, unique in how it merges art and
science, involved an unprecedented collab-
oration between four diverse groups at
Stanford: the Cantor Arts Center, Dr. Chang
and his students, the Division of Clinical
Anatomy and the Lane Medical Library. We
were all inspired by Dr. Chang and his pas-
The exhibition puts the study of anatomy
into historical context with medical texts
published between the 16th and 19th cen-
turies. Illustrations in these volumes, lent
by the Lane Medical Library and Stanford’s
Special Collection, help visitors see how
earlier generations studied the anatomy of
the hand. Videos on view depict virtual
hand surgery and also highlight the unique-
ly collaborative nature of the exhibition.
The videos were created by the anatomy
department’s staff and also by Arhana
Chattopadhyay, a Stanford medical student.
Visitors can also download an e-book creat-
ed by high school intern Alexandra
Bourdillon that summarizes the exhibi-
tion’s content.
Director Wolf noted: “An important part
of the Cantor’s mission is to engage
Stanford students from across disciplines
— so as to broaden their overall education
and world-view. This exhibition certainly
accomplishes that.”
Admission to the Cantor Arts Center is
free. The Cantor is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Wednesday to Sunday and until 8 p.m.

NEW YORK — CBS moved swiftly
Thursday to replace the retiring David
Letterman with Comedy Central’s Stephen
Colbert, who will take over the “Late
Show” next year and do battle with Jimmy
Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel for late-night
television supremacy.
Colbert, 49, has been hosting “The
Colbert Report” at 11:30 p.m. ET since
2005, in character as a fictional conserva-
tive talk-show host. The character will
retire with “The Colbert Report.”
“Simply being a guest on David
Letterman’s show has been a highlight of
my career,” Colbert said. “I never dreamed
that I would follow in his footsteps,
though everyone in late night follows
Dave’s lead.”
Letterman, who turns 67 on Saturday,
announced on his show last week that he
would retire sometime in
2015, although he has-
n’t set a date. CBS said
Thursday that creative
elements of Colbert’s
new show, including
where it will be based,
will be announced later.
Mayors of New York
and Los Angeles have
already publicly urged
the new “Late Show”
host to choose their
ci t y. New York would
appear to have the clear
edge, since Colbert is
already based in New
York and CBS owns the
Ed Sullivan Theater,
where the “Late Show”
has been taped since
Letterman took over in
Stephen Colbert to replace
Letterman on ‘Late Show’
hookah bars and smoking lounges, fearing
e-cigarettes could be as harmful as ciga-
rettes. It would also apply to retailers that
devote more than 15 percent of their total
floor area, or more than a 2-by-4-foot area of
shelf space, to e-cigarette sales, and would-
n’t apply to retailers that sell e-cigarettes as
a smaller component of their businesses. In
the meantime, staff would review and study
potential zoning amendments to limit e-
cigarette sales, according to a staff report.
Until there are more federal guidelines and
scientific research, the city will hold off on
allowing businesses that predominately
carry e-cigarettes to open in the city.
Councilmembers are in favor of such
restrictions, including Vice Mayor Richard
“We can’t tell people what to ingest,” he
said. “We want to restrict the number of ven-
ues people could purchase them at. … I don’t
want to see smoking parlors come into our
city. Parlors encourage young people to par-
ticipate in these things.”
The violation for smoking an e-cigarette
has the same penalty as for smoking tobac-
co. The penalty would count as an infrac-
tion, coming with a maximum fine of $100
for a first time violation, said Assistant City
Manager Jason Rosenberg.

so-called Obamacare law. The opening
weeks of the enrollment period were marred
by widespread website woes, though the
administration rebounded strongly by
enrolling 7.1 million people by the March
31 deadline, exceeding initial expectations.
Enrollment has since risen to 7.5 million as
people were given extra time to complete
Even with the late surge in sign-ups, the
law remains unpopular with many
Americans and Republicans have made it a
centerpiece of their efforts to retake the
Senate in the fall.
Sebelius’ resignation could also set the
stage for a contentious confirmation hear-
ing to replace her. In a sign that the White
House is seeking to avoid a nomination
fight, the president was tapping Sylvia
Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office
of Management and Budget, to replace
Sebelius. Burwell was unanimously con-
firmed by the Senate for her current post.
AWhite House official requested anonymi-
ty to confirm Sebelius’ resignation and
Burwell’s nomination ahead of the formal
announcement. Obama has not nominated
anyone to replace Burwell as budget direc-
Obama remained publicly supportive of
Sebelius throughout the rough rollout,
deflecting Republican calls for her resigna-
tion. But she was conspicuously not stand-
ing by his side last week when he heralded
the sign-up surge during an event in the
White House Rose Garden.
The official said the 65-year-old Sebelius
approached Obama last month about step-
ping down, telling him that the sign-up
deadline was a good opportunity for a tran-
sition and suggesting he would be better
served by someone who was less of a politi-
cal target.
A spokeswoman for Sen. Pat Roberts, a
Republican from Sebelius’ home state of
Kansas, called the resignation “a prudent
decision” given what she called the total
failure of Obamacare implementation.
Sebelius dropped no hints about her resig-
nation Thursday when she testified at a budg-
et hearing. Instead, she received congratula-
tions from Democratic senators on the sign-
up surge.
A popular former governor of Kansas,
Sebelius has been one of Obama’s longest-
serving Cabinet officials and his only HHS
secretary. She was instrumental in shepherd-
ing the health care law through Congress in
2010 and implementing its initial compo-
nents, including a popular provision that
allows young people to stay on their par-
ents’ insurance plans until age 26.
But Sebelius’ relationship with the White
House frayed during the fall rollout of the
insurance exchanges that are at the center of
the sweeping overhaul. The president and
his top advisers appeared caught off guard
by the extent of the website woes, with
warnings from those working on the tech-
nology never making it to the West Wi ng.
After technical problems crippled online
sign-ups after the Oct. 1 launch, the White
House sent management expert and long-
time Obama adviser Jeffrey Zients to over-
see a rescue operation that turned things
around by the end of November. After taking
helm of the project, Zients said manage-
ment issues were partly to blame but did not
point the finger at any individuals.
Sebelius took personal responsibility for
the chaotic launch of the website and asked
the HHS inspector general to conduct an
investigation. That report is not expected
for months.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a
staunch supporter of the health care law,
praised Sebelius as a “forceful, effective and
essential” secretary.
“Secretary Sebelius was a leader in the
long effort to make history for our country
with passage of the Affordable Care Act,”
the California Democrat said in a statement.
In nominating the 48-year-old Burwell,
Obama is tapping a Washington veteran
with a low-profile and the respect of some
Republicans on Capitol Hill. Though she
only joined the Obama administration last
year, Burwell held several White House and
Treasury posts during President Bill
Clinton’s administration.
Between her stints in the executive
branch, Burwell served as president of Wal-
Mart’s charitable arm and head of the global
development program at the Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation.
If confirmed, Burwell will have to contend
with huge challenges related to the contin-
ued implementation of the health overhaul,
as well as the divisive politics surrounding
the law that show no sign of abating.
On the practical side, the administration
has to improve customer service for mil-
lions of Americans trying to navigate the
new system.

help; and Pronunciator, an instruction
service with more than 70 languages.
The Friends have also helped obtain
more bestsellers, e-books and audio
books, Ocón said.
“Libraries have always been on the
forefront of different formats and we
want to stay relevant to the communi-
t y. And right now, it’s a great time
because there’s so much innovation
and so many different formats. And
even as we speak, there’s someone
inventing something new,” Ocón said.
“So keeping the library current and rel-
evant, that’s where the Friends of the
Library come in.”
The Friends have acted in a wide
capacity throughout the years, Ocón
said. They’ve helped with program-
ming, story times, introduced large
print titles, helped secure money for
furniture and equipment and secured
special collections and fine art works,
Ocón said.
With the San Mateo Public Library
Foundation at the helm, the Friends
contributed to raising $10 million to
help remodel the city’s libraries and
build the new main library on Third
Avenue, Ocón said.
The foundation continues to work
with and give thanks for the Friends’
service, Kate Korsh, director of devel-
opment of the foundation, wrote in an
“The Friends of the Library have
been an integral part of the San Mateo
Public Library since 1964. Their com-
mitment to offering a wide selection of
reading material for all ages has played
an important role in creating libraries
for adults, children and families
throughout our community,” Korsh
The City Council also gave thanks
and, at Monday’s meeting, Mayor
Robert Ross presented the Friends
with a proclamation commending the
group for its work, raising more than
$1.5 million during its history, imple-
menting reading programs such as pro-
viding books to those who are home-
bound, helping establish the Marina
Branch Library and for hosting the
annual three-day fall book sale.
The Friends say their work rewards
them as well.
Julie Thoman, 87, has been with the
Friends for about five years and said
she’s loved every minute of it.
“We’re volunteers, there’s nothing
forcing us to be there. We’re there
because we love it. I really believe in
volunteerism, I think it’s a wonderful
thing,” Thoman said. “For one thing, I
think it does help. But it also helps the
people who volunteer. I think it helps
the library, I think it helps the city, I
think maybe it helps the county. But
to a large degree I think it helps the
Part of her role is to help arrange
scheduling for collecting donations,
taking inventory and running the
bookstore, Thoman said. When she
began, there were only four other vol-
unteers, most who had been with the
Friends for 17 impressive years. Since
then, the number of Friends has grown
to 22, Thoman said.
“Any group that gets long-term
members creates a history and a pride
and kind of a flow and just keeps it
going,” Thoman said.
Sherry Fong has been an integral
part of the Friends since she and her
husband started over 17 years ago.
Meeting new people and spending
time with her friends has made the
years fly by, Fong said.
“It’s being able to meet people,
serve the public and have fun with your
cohorts,” Fong said.
There’s never a dull moment as
there’s always something to do to help
out and the library is always full, Fong
Thoman said she wanted to be a
librarian when she was younger and,
now that she’s retired, one of her
biggest rewards is to see how libraries
influence others.
“I sit there every day and watch it.
Somehow this library has managed to
be a place for little children. Little
children love to be there. The pro-
grams, they encourage little kids,”
Thoman said. “I think it’s making
tomorrow’s readers.”
The 50th anniversary celebration is
3 p.m. Wednesday, April 16 at the

$1.76 million for the park makeover
but the low bidder came in at $1.99
million. With many other pressing
capital improvement needs in the city,
staff is recommending the City
Council at Monday night’s meeting
reject all of the bids, reduce the scope
and costs and re-bid the changed plan.
The project likely wouldn’t go out to
bid again for at least two months
which would push construction into
early 2015. Wet weather could delay
the work even further and require can-
cellation of another soccer season at
Crestview, Public Works Director Jay
Walter told the council in a report for
Monday’s meeting.
Another possible challenge in rebid-
ding the project is that the new prices
might actually come in higher because
of the current economic climate.
Walter used as example the San Jose
State University football field
improvement project which was reject-
ed and rebid, costing the school an
extra $193,000.
If the City Council wants to immedi-
ately go ahead with the Crestview Park
renovation plan as bidded, it could use
the remaining $216,000 balance in
the Burton Park Phase II project fund.
General fund reserves would make up
the difference but be replaced by any
remaining contingency money after
the project ends.
Going this route would have con-
struction beginning likely in May
with completion by the end of
Cost savings measures already made
include pre-purchasing the playground
equipment at a discounted price rather
than pay the contractor’s markup — a
projected savings of $23,250 — and
making several items alternatives so
that they can be excluded if the bids are
too high. These include the pathway
steps and basketball courts.
Other possible savings include
approximately $50,000 by omitting
the restroom upgrades and approxi-
mately $39,000 by removing a chain-
link fence from the project.
Mayor Mark Olbert said accepting
the lowest bid seems like the better
way to go because of the way construc-
tion costs are accelerating with the
improving Peninsula economy but
he’s still considering the situation.
The bigger concern, he said, is what
the economy might mean for other
capital projects and he’s asked staff to
reassess all the pending and proposed
projects for the upcoming budget
The City Council approved the reno-
vation plan last year after some tug-of-
war over its components, in particular
the proposed use of synthetic turf at
the 1.1-acre park located on Crestview
Drive north of Brittan Avenue. After
the Planning Commission deadlocked
over the turf, the City Council first
shot down the idea and then adopted a
makeover plan that incorporated
design elements of multiple propos-
als. The renovations call for installing
age-appropriate playground equip-
ment, renovating resurfacing and
marking the basketball area, reducing
the parking spaces by two, adding a
small bleacher or goal storage to the
hillside, saving a beloved redwood tree
and finding more flat areas for the local

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2014
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Keep an up-to-date
record of your business contacts. Don’t be shy if
you are looking to change or advance your career.
Networking with friends can prove beneficial, as well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You will feel energetic
and in high spirits. Get together with a close friend
for a day of fun and laughter. A shopping spree or
sightseeing excursion could lead to romance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Your home may
not be the safe haven that you’d like it to be.
Minor disagreements could develop into major
arguments. You can avoid trouble if you keep your
opinions to yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Stop hesitating and
take the plunge. Your life is not going to change if
you wait for others to make the first move. Take the
initiative and chase your goals.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Keep your eyes and ears
open to any financial suggestions you receive.
Be ready to take action. Moving decisively and
quickly could pave the way to an unexpected
moneymaking venture.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Overindulgence is not
an answer to your problems. If you are distressed or
confused, talk it out with someone you trust. Someone
from your past is likely to want to re-enter your life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You may discover some
money that you had forgotten about. Now is the best
time to complete any unfinished chores or tackle tasks
that you have been putting off.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Find an imaginative
way to sell your ideas. Your talents will go unnoticed
unless you market your skills effectively. Take any
opportunity to help others in your community.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You should remain
observant and tight-lipped today. If you are too open,
you will leave yourself open to criticism. Don’t give
anyone the chance to use your words against you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Changes are
happening all around you. Now is a good time for
reflection and contemplation. Imagine ways to
improve your life, and examine different avenues
that will help get you there.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You may be intrigued
by a fascinating opportunity. Before you sign
something or make an investment, look into the legal
details. Rather than take a gamble, you should make
an informed decision.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You are likely to meet
someone who will take a special place in your heart.
Talking about your intentions will lead to long-term
plans. Put love and romance first.

A man changes money at a currency exchange office in Kiev,Ukraine.
By Vladimir Isachenkov
and Mataliya Vasilyeva
MOSCOW — Vladimir Putin warned
Europe on Thursday that it may face a shut-
down of Russian natural gas supplies if it
fails to help Ukraine settle its enormous
Russian gas bill — a debt that far exceeds a
bailout package offered by the International
Monetary Fund.
The Russian president’s letter to 18 most-
ly Eastern European leaders, released
Thursday by the Kremlin, aimed to divide
the 28-nation European Union and siphon
off to Russia the billions that the interna-
tional community plans to lend to Ukraine.
It was all part of Russia’s efforts to retain
control over its struggling neighbor, which
is teetering on the verge of financial ruin
