Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Thursday • May 1, 2014 • Vol XIII, Edition 220
By Angela Swartz
Apartment rates in San Mateo County
continue to rise, as the county tied with
Marin and San Francisco counties for the
top three most expensive out of 3,144 other
counties in the United States to live in, with
renters needing to make $29.83 per hour to
afford one-bedroom housing, according to
the National Low Income Housing
The average rent for an apartment in the
first quarter of 2014 was $2,360. The
average one-bedroom, one-bathroom
apartment was $2,136. The average occu-
pancy rate was 93.9 percent, up 0.3 per-
cent from the same time last year, accord-
ing to RealFacts, a group that compiles
apartment data. Minimum wage in San
Mateo County is $8 per hour.
Development is growing along the
Peninsula, said Nick Grotjahn, sales and
client services representative for RealFacts.
“We’re seeing a lot of growth,” Grotjahn
said. “People are starting to build proper-
ties in San Mateo because rents are out of
reach in San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
Whenever builders see an opportunity
where there’s quite a bit of demand, the out-
lying areas are going to grow as well.”
Meanwhile, Sally Navarro, a rental, sales
and property management Realtor for AVR
Realty in Burlingame, said the market has
been crazy and ever changing in the last
eight months. Navarro helps rent out
spaces from Daly City to Menlo Park.

As commercial fishermen threw out
their lines at the stroke of midnight
with hopes of reeling in the first of
this year’s salmon Thursday, unfavor-
able drought conditions and Pillar
Point Harbor politics have some wor-
ried about the years ahead.
Jake Bunch, a marine biologist,
commercial fisherman and captain of
the Sadie K, is fairly new in the fishing
industry. Bunch said he decided to take
to the seas in 2012 and now brings
home fresh salmon and crab to sell off
his boat at Pillar Point Harbor in Half
Moon Bay.
“The local movement now is huge,
so people are willing to pay for stuff
that’s harvested locally which is great
for us,” Bunch said. “What I try to do is
sell everything I can off the boat. … I
did about half of my total revenue of
off-the-boat sales last year. ”
Commercial season began
Thursday and runs through Aug. 29
with a two-week break in the begin-
ning of July. Yet statewide drought
conditions, conservation effort s,
local fish buying fees and tension
over a new hoist at Johnson Pier
have some fishermen worried.
Recreational fishermen have already
caught bright red beauties, fat on
healthy krill, said Dave Mallory, fish
buyer and owner of Morning Star
“There’s always hope and expecta-
tion in the beginning of salmon sea-
son,” Mallory said. “And now people
are ready for their omega 3 wild
salmon. Of course most of them don’t
know it, but they’ve been used to eat-
ing farm fish over the winter. …
Salmon has gone up quite a bit in price
Reeling in the season
Commercial salmon fishermen at work in Half Moon Bay
Jake Bunch and his brother Devin Bunch wrap fishing line and lures in preparation of heading out at the start of salmon season
at Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay Wednesday.

Thieves take everything
— even the kitchen sink
WICHITA, Kan. — Everything has
been stolen — including the kitchen
sink — from the kitchen of a model
house in Kansas.
Police say thieves stripped the
kitchen of the Clayton Homes unit in
south Wichita, taking all the upscale
appliances, the wooden cabinets from
the walls and, of course, the sink.
General manager Kevin McCracken
says the model unit was nearly ready
for display when the theft occurred,
sometime between 9 p.m. Sunday and
8 a.m. Monday.
KWCH-TV reports that the missing
appliances, cabinets, counters and
sink, along with the cost of repairing
the damage, amounts to a loss of sev-
eral thousand dollars.
Golf coach accused of
trying to have teens killed
LIVERMORE — Prosecutors say a
San Francisco Bay Area golf coach
accused of molesting three boys tried
to hire a hit man to have them killed.
The Alameda County District
Attorney’s Office has charged 32-year-
old Andrew Michael Nisbet with three
counts of solicitation of murder.
Nisbet already was facing dozens of
molestation charges.
Prosecutors say the Livermore golf
coach exchanged letters with a confi-
dential informant in which he indicat-
ed he wanted the victims killed and dis-
cussed the price. They say he later met
with an undercover agent posing as a
hit man to discuss the killings.
Police arrest two in
‘wrong car color’ killing
SAN JOSE — San Jose police say
they have arrested two people in the

Twenty-one-year-old Richard James
Guerrero was arrested on suspicion of
murder and 20-year-old David Ramiro
Martinez was arrested on suspicion of
being an accessory to the murder.
Eric Mendoza was gunned down
April 3 in East San Jose. Family mem-
bers say the 25-year-old was driving a
red car in a neighborhood where the
Sureno street gang is active. The gang
claims the color blue and clashes with
its red-bearing Norteno rivals.
State investigates
colony of big-headed ants
COSTA MESA — State agricultural
inspectors have identified a colony of
big-headed ants — an invasive species

ing for other colonies in the area.

Wednesday that the ants previously
were found in plant and flower ship-
ments. This is the first time they’ve
been discovered living naturally in
The ants — which do indeed have
bulbous heads — are native to Africa.
Their bite is harmless to humans.
However, state officials say the ants
aren’t native and could impact the
local ecosystem if they spread.
Colorado eyes edibles
rules as more people eat pot
DENVER — Colorado’s marijuana
experiment is threatened by the popu-
larity of eating it instead of smoking
it, leading the pot industry to join
health officials and state regulators to
try to curb the problem of consumers
ingesting too much weed.
A task force that’s meeting
Wednesday planned to start work on
refining Colorado’s rules on edibles,
the industry term for marijuana that
has been concentrated and infused into
food or drink.
“Basically, we are trying to figure
out how to come up with a reasonable
THC concentration or amount in edi-
bles in proportion to product safety
size,” said Dr. George Sam Wang of
Children’s Hospital Colorado, a pedi-
atric emergency physician who has
treated children and toddlers who fell
ill after eating marijuana.

Residents warned

Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt circulated an
alert warning residents to not offer money
to pay off any phony jury duty fees for fail-
ing to appear.
She said Wednesday that the department
continues to receive calls from people who
are unsure if the calls are real or a scam.
Sheriff’s officials want residents to know
that no law enforcement agency would con-
tact a member of the public and demand that
they pay outstanding fees or fines or be
arrested for failing to do so, Rosenblatt
Residents should be vigilant and never
offer any private information over the
phone, including Social Security numbers
or credit card information, unless they
themselves initiated the phone call.

Boxer questions TSA about San Jose stowaway
WASHINGTON — A few weeks before a 15-year-old boy
stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from California to
Hawaii, the U.S. Transportation Security
Administration conducted a review of San
Jose’s airport and found its perimeter to
be in compliance with the agency’s secu-
rity requirements.
Now, Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of
California is questioning the thorough-
ness of the TSA’s nearly three-month
review given that the boy said he hopped
a fence to get to the plane. Boxer made
the case in a Senate hearing Wednesday
that if a 15-year-old could get through security barriers, oth-
ers could, too.
“What if it was someone else with an explosive?” Boxer
TSA Administrator John Pistole told Boxer that the
agency’s review indicates that Mineta San Josi International
Airport has the proper security systems in place, but it’s not
a guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen.

RICHMOND — Amarine salvage company has recovered

Head-on crash closes 92
State Route 92 in Half Moon Bay was
closed for about an hour Wednesday after-
noon following a head-on collision that
injured two drivers and blocked the highway
in both directions.
According to San Mateo County sheriff’s
Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt, the collision
was reported at 3:02 p.m. just east of the
intersection of State Route 92 and Highway
1. The road was reopened at 4:15 p.m.
A person driving a vehicle in the west-
bound direction crossed the center divide for
unknown reasons, Rosenblatt said. The
vehicle then struck another vehicle travel-
ing east.
The driver heading in the westbound direc-
tion had to be extricated from the vehicle
and was taken by helicopter to an area hos-
pital, Rosenblatt said. The other driver was
transported via ambulance to a hospital.
Both victims were conscious at the scene,
Rosenblatt said.
Antibiotics legislation hits setback
Local brief
By Samantha Weigel
Discouraging the unnecessary overuse of
antibiotics in livestock and protecting the
public from resistant bacteria was a goal
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin and state Sen.
Jerry Hill wanted to tackle this year, how-
ever, their three-pronged approach was
weakened Wednesday after one bill was
Mullin, D-South San Francisco, tabled
his livestock antibiotics bill, saying he
wanted to maintain its integrity yet didn’t
have support.
“I think this is an important public
health issue that needs to be addressed, but
the votes were simply not there to move it
forward this year,” Mullin wrote in a press
Hill, D-San Mateo, has two bills in the
Senate regarding antibiotics, however,
Mullin’s bill would have been the strictest.
Mullin’s Assembly
Bill 1437 would have
banned nontherapeutic
use in livestock such as
for weight-gain purpos-
es. It also required data
collection and allowed
sick animals to be treat-
ed while still prohibit-
ing regular low-dose
His bill would have also barred the use of
antibiotics that have been documented to
threaten public health by increasing the
prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacte-
Both legislators cite growing research
on how the widespread use of antibiotics in
both farm animals and as prescribed in
hospitals is rendering them less effective.
Nearly 80 percent of the nation’s antibi-
otic supply is used on livestock and the
Center for Disease Control and Prevention
reported every year more
than 2 million
Americans contract
a n t i b i o t i c - r e s i s t a n t
infections and at least
23,000 die as a result.
In December, the Food
and Drug Administration
issued a request for phar-
maceutical companies,
livestock and poultry producers to stop
using antibiotics to promote faster growth
in animals, however, Mullin and Hill want
to make it compulsory, as it was only a
In a press release, Mullin expressed con-
cern about withdrawing his bill as even if
the FDA’s recommendations became
mandatory, antibiotics could still be
administered in low doses, causing some
bacteria to become resistant and eventual-
ly spread to consumers.
Hill’s legislative packet includes Senate
Bill 835 that addresses the use in farm ani-

Toronto mayor says he’ll seek help
TORONTO — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford
will take a leave of absence to seek help for
alcohol, he said
Wednesday, as a report
surfaced about a second
video of the mayor smok-
ing what appears to be
crack cocaine.
Ford, who is seeking re-
election in the Oct. 27
vote, said he will take an
immediate leave from his
job and his campaign.
“I have a problem with
alcohol, and the choices I have made while
under the influence. I have struggled with this
for some time,” Ford said in statement late
The Globe and Mail newspaper said it has
viewed a second video of Ford smoking what
appears to be crack cocaine in his sister’s
basement. The national newspaper said two
Globe reporters viewed the video from a self-
professed drug dealer showing Ford taking a
drag from a pipe early Saturday morning.
The video is part “of a package of three
videos the dealer said was surreptitiously
filmed around 1:15 a.m., and which he says
he is now selling for ‘at least six figures,”’
the paper reported.
News reports of the existence of an earlier
video of Ford apparently smoking crack first
surfaced last May, igniting a media firestorm
around Ford.

Mandatory evacuations lifted in California fire
RANCHO CUCAMONGA — Authorities say winds whip-
ping a Southern California wildfire eased enough to allow
people back into 1,650 homes that were evacuated as smoke
choked a foothill community.
The U.S. Forest Service says a mandatory evacuation
order was lifted shortly before 6 p.m. PDT Wednesday for
areas of Rancho Cucamonga, a city of 165,000 people east
of Los Angeles.
But people in some northern neighborhoods are still
urged to leave voluntarily if they feel threatened.
The 70-mph wind gusts that sent smoke over the area have
eased and are expected to die down further Wednesday
evening. But authorities say it’s still too gusty for aircraft
to join the firefight .
The blaze erupted around 8 a.m. in the foothills of the San
Bernardino National Forest and by afternoon had burned
1,000 acres of brush.
The only structure that burned was a fence.
California’s population grew by 356,000 in 2013
SACRAMENTO — California’s population grew nearly 1
percent in 2013 to exceed 38.3 million, with the highest
growth rate in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Data released Wednesday by the state Department of
Finance show California added 356,000 people last year. A
more detailed population report released in December said
births outpacing deaths was one factor in the growth rate.
Wednesday’s report says San Jose, the state’s third largest
city behind Los Angeles and San Diego, hit 1 million resi-
dents for the first time.
Santa Clara County, which includes San Jose, was the
fastest growing county at 1.5 percent, followed closely by
Alameda County. In all, three of the five fastest-growing
counties were in the Bay Area.
Despite the overall growth, rural counties such as Amador,
Calaveras and Plumas, generally lost population.
Around the state
Gov. Mary Fallin named a member of
her Cabinet on Wednesday to lead a
review of how the state conducts exe-
cutions after a botched procedure that
the White House said fell short of the
humane standards required.
Fallin said Clayton Lockett, who
had an apparent heart attack 43 min-
utes after the start of an execution in
which the state was using a new drug
combination for the first time, had his
day in court.
“I believe the death penalty is an
appropriate response and punishment
to those who commit heinous crimes
against their fellow men and women,”
Fallin said. “However, I also believe
the state needs to be certain of its pro-
tocols and its procedures for execu-
tions and that they work.”
Lockett convulsed violently and
tried to lift his head after a doctor
declared him unconscious, and prison
officials halted the execution. Fallin
said “an independent review” would be
effective and appropriate.
The governor said the review, to be
led by Department of Public Safety
Commissioner Michael Thompson,
will focus on Lockett’s cause of death
and that an independent pathologist
will make that determination. The
review will also look at whether the
department followed the current proto-
col correctly and will include recom-
mendations for future executions.
Fallin said a stay for Charles Warner,
who had been scheduled to die two
hours after Lockett, is in place until
May 13. She said Warner’s execution
will be further delayed if the review is
not complete by then.
Warner’s attorney objected to the
investigation being led by a member
of Fallin’s Cabinet.
“I don’t consider that to be an inde-
pendent investigation,” said lawyer
Madeline Cohen.
Attorney General Scott Pruitt, whose
office has worked to keep secret details
about the execution drugs, said he
intends to assign investigators to
work with Thompson.
The Oklahoma Board of Corrections
planned to meet in a closed-door ses-
sion Thursday to discuss the investiga-
tion and “possible litigation” con-
nected to Lockett’s execution. The
department did not immediately
respond to a request for details.
Lockett, 38, had been declared
unconscious 10 minutes after the first
of three drugs in the state’s new lethal
injection combination was adminis-
tered Tuesday. Three minutes later, he
began breathing heavily, clenching
his teeth.

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans
derailed a Democratic drive Wednesday to
raise the federal minimum wage, blocking a
cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s
economic plans and ensuring the issue will
be a major feature of this fall’s congression-
al elections.
Facing the threat of a GOP Senate
takeover, Democrats have forced votes on a
procession of bills designed to amplify
their message of economic fairness.
Republican senators accused Democrats of
playing politics by pushing a minimum
wage measure designed to lure voters but too
expensive for employers and sure to result
in lost jobs and higher inflation.
“This is about trying to make this side of
the aisle look bad and hard-hearted, and to
try to rescue this midterm election,” said
No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of
The legislation by Sen. Tom Harkin of
Iowa would increase the $7.25 hourly mini-
mum wage for American workers in three
steps until it reached $10.10 after 30
months, with annual increases for inflation
afterward. The minimum has been at $7.25
since 2009, with 3.3 million Americans —
including disproportionate numbers of
women and younger people — earning that
figure or less last year.
“We saw this morning a majority of sena-
tors saying yes, but almost every
Republican saying no to giving America a
raise,” Obama said in pointedly political
remarks at a White House event with low-
wage workers. “And then if they keep put-
ting politics ahead of working Americans,
you can put them out of office.”
All but daring Republicans to vote
against the measure, Harkin said before the
vote, “Who’s going to vote to give these
people a fair shot at the American dream?
And who’s going to vote against it?”
The answer came moments later when
senators voted 54-42 to continue debating
the legislation — six votes short of the 60
needed to keep the measure moving forward.
Every voting Republican but one — Bob
Corker of Tennessee — voted no.

sonnel subcommittee, said of the proposed
Pentagon cuts after the panel vote. “To me

ment is national defense. We will be provid-
The panel’s action marked the first step in
the defense budget process on Capitol Hill,
with the full Armed Services Committee
expected to approve the bill next week.
Facing diminished budgets, three
defense secretaries and senior officers
have maintained that the cost of person-
nel benefits have become unsustainable
and threaten the Pentagon’s ability to
prepare the force for warfighting.
The department has proposed gradual
reductions that would increase out-of-pock-
et expenses for current and retired military
as it faces a sober reality — military pay
and benefits comprise the largest share of
the budget, $167.2 billion out of $495.6

service members and their families are fair-

training and equipment possible — so that

Every attempt by the Pentagon to trim
benefits has faced fierce resistance from
congressional Republicans and Democrats
as well as powerful outside military organi-
zations that argue the benefits help attract
men and women to the all-volunteer force.
They also contend that service members
and their families make unique sacrifices and
deserve all the benefits.
Still, concerns about fiscal realities
emerged during the panel’s brief discussion
about the legislation.
Military benefits survive defense cuts
By Paul Larson
Thank you thank
you thank you.
This is what I hear
over and over, year
after year, from
families that we
serve. Either
verbally or in hand-written cards or letters
families say thank you: Thank for your
help; Thank you for all you have done to
make this process easier; Thank you for
making this final tribute to my mother one
which will be fondly remembered; Thank
you for your advice; Thank you for being
there for us at a time we needed you most;
Thank you for making it all easy for us;
Thank you for being a friend, etc. To hear
“Thank you” time and time again is a
confirmation for me that our Chapel of the
Highlands crew is doing their best to serve
families who’ve been through a death, in an
appropriate and professional manner, and
that we are doing the right thing in caring
for families during a difficult situation, in
turn making it more of a comfort for them.
Normally saying “You’re welcome” is
the correct response. You’re welcome, or
“You are welcome”, can be taken a number
of different ways. Generally it means you
are always a welcome guest. It can also be
taken as a blessing meaning you wish
wellness on the person who thanked you.
Wishing wellness or health to anyone is a
nice gesture. In recent years though we all
have witnessed the term “You’re welcome”
being substituted with “Thank you” back at
the person who is doing the thanking. This
is “OK”, but saying “You’re welcome” first
is taken as a hospitable and warm gesture.
Now that “Thank you” and “You’re
welcome” have been established, I would
like to say thank you back to the families we
serve: Thank you for supporting the Chapel
of the Highlands. Thank you for your
faithful patronage. Because of you we have
been able to continue with our high
standards and excellent level of service for
many years, since 1952. Thank you to those
families who we’ve helped so many times in
the past. Thank you to the new families
who’ve discovered that we offer them
respect and provide the dignified care that
their loved one deserves.
Your support, and the continued interest
from the community in our service, is what
keeps us going strong and available when
we are needed. Our costs have always been
considered fair, and the funds taken in for
our services are also very much appreciated.
Those Chapel of the Highlands funds along
with our support sifts back to the community
in different ways. Donations to local causes,
along with the donation of time through
membership in service organizations such as
Lions, I.C.F., Historical Society, Chamber
of Commerce, etc. is natural for us. Giving
back as a volunteer via these groups helps in
binding us with our neighbors, together
creating a better community for the future.
All in all there are many ways to say
“Thank you”. Doing so in a variety of ways
can create a circle of gratitude, in turn
making our community a better place.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

Activists: Airstrike on Syrian school kills 19
BEIRUT — ASyrian fighter jet struck a school with a mis-
sile in the northern city of Aleppo Wednesday as teachers
and students were preparing an exhibit of children’s draw-
ings depicting their country at war, killing at least 19 peo-
ple, including 10 children, activists said.
Bulldozers removed rubble from the smashed building,
with children’s drawings and paintings scattered in the
debris, according to activist videos of the government
airstrike on a school in the opposition-held eastern part of
the city. One of the drawings showed a hanging skeleton
surrounded by skulls with a child nearby being shot by a
gunman in a ditch. The child has a speech bubble written
above her head in broken English that partly reads: “Syria
will still free.”
In another video by opposition activists, the bodies of
10 children wrapped in brown and blue sheets are seen on
the floor of a hospital ward while a woman screams in the
The videos appeared genuine and corresponded to

including 10 children.
Kiev: Forces ‘helpless’ to restore order in east
HORLIVKA, Ukraine — Ukraine’s acting president con-
ceded Wednesday that his police and security forces were
“helpless” to stifle unrest in the country’s east, where pro-
Russia gunmen seized more buildings, walking into the
police station and mayor’s office in this mining hub without
Insurgents also took control of the customs service build-
ing in Donetsk, the region’s main city, and city hall in
Alchevsk, an industrial center of about 110,000, adding to
the scores of buildings taken by the separatists over the
past month in the east, where a dozen cities are now in the
hands of the separatists.
Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has twice pro-
claimed “anti-terrorist” operations to regain control of the
east, but to little effect. In a meeting with officials from
other Ukrainian regions, he acknowledged the failure and
indicated the government would back off even trying to
bring the most restive parts of the east to heel, focusing
instead on trying to keep the unrest from spreading to other
parts of the nation of 46 million.

But his optimism will do little to
conceal the turmoil and violence that
still stalk Iraq in the eight years he has

an bloodshed and risking a breakup.

talking about how big is that certain

“Here we are today, successfully
holding the ... election while no for-
eign troops exist on Iraqi soil. I call
upon all the other groups to leave the

good brotherly relations,” said al-
Maliki, who faces growing criticism
over government corruption and per-
sistent bloodshed as sectarian ten-
sions threaten to push Iraq back toward
the brink of civil war.
The election was held amid a massive
security operation, with hundreds of
thousands of troops and police
deployed across the country to protect
polling centers and voters. The streets
of Baghdad, a city of 7 million, looked
deserted. Police and soldiers manned
checkpoints roughly 500 meters

ed with machine guns roamed the

ou know things are bad in
Sacramento when
California’s lawmakers are
required to take ethics training.
State Senate members were called
into a closed-door session by Senate
Democratic leader Darrell Steinberg
this week to attend a mandatory
ethics training session, a shocking
admission that something stinks in
the Capitol building of the Golden
The training session was held in
the aftermath of three Democratic
senators facing criminal charges, a
major embarrassment for a party that
has fought long and hard to reach its
goal of controlling the state
Not that Republicans should take
much solace in the accusations.
Allegations of corruption affect both
parties equally.
After all, who can blame the poor
voter who looks at the influence of
special interests in the halls of gov-
ernment and reacts by saying: “My
vote doesn’t count anymore. My so-
called representatives respond to the
moneyed interests and not to me.”
The average voter is right, because
the amount of fund-raising required
to run for office has become a domi-
nating part of any candidate’s cam-
paign strategy.
Honest or corrupt, a candidate
today faces a daily challenge to raise
money — if not for herself, for oth-
ers in her party’s leadership. Where
is your Assembly member or state
senator this evening? Chances are
he’s at a fund-raiser, smiling and
making small talk over wine and
cheese with this trade group or that
As a result, there’s now consider-
able push-back about getting the
money out of politics, about putting
limits on donations or banning
methods of fund-raising altogether.
Just this week during a debate among
candidates for state Secretary of
State, four candidates vowed to take
action against the corrupting influ-
ence of money, each of them propos-
ing a different level of regulation.
Alas, we’re not convinced that
either strict legislation or ethics
training behind closed doors will
solve the problem. Integrity is a
personal issue, and voters should
ask that a candidate for office — any
candidate — should make a case dur-
ing a campaign that he or she will
respond to voters and not merely the
special interests.
Most office-holders are honest.
But like the rest of us, politicians
are judged by the worst of what they
do, and that means that they ought
to answer some hard questions about
who funds them and why.
Accepting a political donation in
and of itself is not corrupt —
whether it’s from an environmental
group or a private industry. But it’s
up to the office-holder to acknowl-
edge the donation, report it publicly
and ensure that the voter still has a
In our current political climate,
it’s impossible to expect the public
to give blind trust to those holding
office. Ethics training actually
might be a good start. But public
officials — especially those in far-
off Sacramento — have a lot of work
to do to regain the public trust.
It will take time and a lot of effort.
The ball is in their court.
Will political ethics training work? Immortal stories
of Half Moon Bay
alf Moon Bay, get ready for your close-up.
Hollywood is calling. Last week, the Bravo TV
network announced a new mystery drama produced
by actress Jennifer Garner and set it in — you guessed it —
Half Moon Bay.
Take that, Carmel! You might have Clint Eastwood but
the San Mateo County coast gets Ben Affleck’s wife and the
folks who brought TVviewers such gems as “Toddlers &
Tiaras” and its breakout star Honey Boo Boo.
Of course, this upcoming bit of escapism will not be
“The Real Housewives of Half Moon Bay” much as that
might be disappointing. Instead, the show entitled “All the
Pretty Faces” is described as a mystery dramedy series
focusing on, according to one
published summary, “two immor-
tal families in a decades-long feud
who come together after one of
them dies to search for the secret
to their eternal life.”
I’m thinking “Twilight” meets
“Hatfield & McCoys” with every-
body impossibly attractive to
watch and at least one Romeo and
Juliet-style love connection that
keeps the families at odds. And
maybe a werewolf. The word
“moon” is in the city’s name,
after all.
Besides, supernatural is fitting for that part of the county.
There’s the Blue Lady of the Moss Beach Distillery, the
ghostly apparition of a beautiful, young woman who died
in a violent automobile accident some 70-odd years ago and
haunts the restaurant looking for the handsome bar piano
player with whom she had an illicit affair. Another legend
claims that the Purissima Cemetery south of Half Moon
Bay includes a little boy who died from a fever. Agrown
man fell ill with similar symptoms about a week later and
appeared to have also died. But he woke up just as funeral
preparations were being finished. The boy’s family worried
they had buried the boy alive so they exhumed the grave.
Cue the creepy music — the body was flipped over inside
the casket.
On Thanksgiving Day 2006, three teens broke into an
abandoned Pacifica elementary school in search of ghostly
spirits. They claimed to belong to the Idaho Spirit Seekers
and had information about ghosts at Fairmont School. The
organization said only one boy ever attended a meeting and
was not invited to join. There you go — built-in drama and
Why stop there with the ripped-from-the-headline plot
lines? Supernatural undertones aside, the writers needn’t
look too far for some real drama Half Moon Bay.
The antics of the Harbor Commission, with its infighting
and finger pointing, is good for a multi-episode arc. Heck,
maybe it could provide some of the hair-pulling and name
calling we’ve come to expect from the Real Housewives
franchise. Not so sure on the plastic surgery and bling.

special disaster episode — and the Mavericks surfing com-
petition are possibilities. Action shots! Guest appearances!
Now the mystery — how about a murder? Gaylord the
ostrich was found fatally shot the day after Halloween in
2006 and his killers only revealed after his owner tracked
down the pair on her own.
Or, stretching a bit, maybe a giant gourd can fall on a
competitor at the annual giant pumpkin weigh-off. Was
somebody trying to squash the competition? Tune in next
week to find out.
Same goes for that town divide over agritourism, colise-
um-style sword fights and large metal gorillas at pumpkin
farms. If that doesn’t cause rifts among families and resi-
dents, little will.
When all else fails, the city’s somewhat recent financial
trouble stemming from an $18 million legal settlement
over a land dispute is always good fodder. City government
isn’t usually what springs to mind when one thinks of scin-
tillating television but the success of “Parks and
Recreation” is proof positive that even the most basic of
functions can be mined for comic gold. Granted, nobody
was laughing when city leaders began talking about unin-
corporating and outsourcing services.
Nobody is laughing either over the city’s latest twist, the
fight over the future of its historic bridge connecting down-
town and State Route 92. But in the hands of a good writer,
who knows what gems can spun from this story of a city
battlefield. It might even be better than the real thing.
However, unlike those other tales out of Half Moon Bay, we
must wait until later for that story’s finale.

Big movers
By Steve Rothwell
NEW YORK — The Dow Jones
industrial average closed at an all-
time high Wednesday as the good nar-
rowly outweighed the bad for the
stock market.
After investors took in some solid
U.S. company earnings, the latest
move from the Federal Reserve and a
report of unexpectedly weak econom-
ic growth in the first quarter, the
stock market managed its third
straight day of gains.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 45.47 points, or 0.3 percent, to
16,580.84, four points above its pre-
vious record set on Dec. 31. It was the
first day the index closed in positive
territory for the year.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
rose 5.62 points, or 0.3 percent, to
1, 883. 95. The Nasdaq composite
rose 11.01 points, or 0.3 percent, to
4, 114. 56.
Stocks started the day lower after
the Commerce Department said U.S.
growth slowed to a barely discernible
0.1 percent annual rate in the
January-March quarter, less than 1.1
percent forecast by economists,
according to FactSet. Winter storms
chilled activity.
The market’s reaction was muted
because most investors expect the
slowdown to be temporary and
growth to rebound with warmer tem-
“Most people, including us,
expected March to have been the
strongest month of the first quarter”
and that growth will continue to pick
up, said Sean Lynch, global invest-
ment strategist for Wells Fargo
Private Bank. “That’s an OK environ-
ment for the market.”
Some solid earnings reports and
corporate deal news helped offset the
weak economic report, and by midday
stocks had eked out small gains.
Pepco Holdings surged $3.97, or
17.4 percent, to $26.76 after it
agreed to be acquired by nuclear
power company Exelon for $6.83
billion, creating a large electric and
gas utility in the mid-Atlantic
region. Exelon will pay an 18 per-
cent premium to the company’s
$23.10 closing price on Tuesday.
Sealed Air rose $1.72, or 5.3 per-
cent, to $34.31 after the food pack-
aging company’s earnings easily
beat Wall Street’s expectations. The
company also said it was on track to
post full-year earnings at the upper
end of the range of its forecast.
More than 60 percent of S&P 500
companies have reported first-quarter
earnings. Analysts currently expect
earnings to grow by 1.7 percent in
the period, according to S&P Capital
IQ data. That compares with growth
of almost 8 percent in the fourth quar-
ter and 5.2 percent in the same period
a year ago.
Stocks climbed higher in afternoon
trading after the Federal Reserve’s
statement following its April policy
meeting was in line with investor’s
The Fed said it would reduce its
monthly bond purchases by another
$10 billion to $45 billion. The stim-
ulus is intended to hold down long-
term interest rates and support the
mortgage market. The Fed also reaf-
firmed its plan to keep short-term
interest rates low to support the
economy “for a considerable time”
after its bond purchases end, likely
late this year.
Bond prices rose. The yield on the
10-year Treasury note fell to 2.65
percent from 2.70 percent on
Tuesday. The yield on the note has
fallen from 3 percent at the start of
the year.
As bond yields remain close to his-
torical lows, stocks will likely
remain attractive to investors, said
David Kelly, Chief Global Strategist
at JPMorgan funds.
“What else are you supposed to do
with your money?” Kelly said. “For
lack of something better to do with
it, money is going to move back into
Dow closes at all-time high
By Martin Crutsinger
WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve
struck an encouraging note Wednesday: It
will further cut its bond purchases because
the U.S. job market needs less help. And it
said the economy had strengthened after all
but stalling during a harsh winter.
The Fed also reaffirmed its plan to keep
short-term interest rates low to support the
economy “for a considerable time” after its
bond purchases end, likely late this year.
But it again offered no specific timetable for
any rate increase. Most economists expect
no rate increase before mid-2015 at the ear-
Investors liked what they heard. Stocks
rose after the Fed issued its statement, and
the Dow Jones industrial average closed up
45 points to a record 16,580.
The Fed’s guidance on short-term rates
conforms to goals that Chair Janet Yellen
noted in a speech this month. She said the
Fed’s rate policies must be flexible enough
to meet unexpected economic challenges.
The Fed’s description of an economy
rebounding from the winter freeze was the
only meaningful change it made from the
statement it issued in March, after the first
meeting that Yellen led after taking over in
Wednesday’s statement also repeated the
theme the Fed sounded in March that even
after the job market strengthens and it starts
raising rates, it will likely keep rates unusu-
ally low to support a still-subpar economy.
Exxon, Chevron raise
dividends ahead of 1Q results
NEW YORK — Exxon Mobil Corp. and
Chevron Corp. announced Thursday that
they are raising their dividends just ahead of
quarterly financial reports that are expected
to show more than $13 billion in combined
Exxon Mobil, the nation’s largest oil com-
pany, hiked its dividend by 9.5 percent, to 69
cents per share from 63 cents. The Irving,
Texas-based company said the dividend will
be payable June 10 to investors who own the
shares on May 13. No. 2 Chevron raised its
dividend by 7 percent to $1.07 from $1 per
share. It will be payable June 10 to share-
holders as of May 19.
Exxon is expected to report Thursday that it
earned $1.88 per share in the first quarter, or
about $8.3 billion excluding special items,
according to a survey of analysts by FactSet.
Revenue is projected at $109.76 billion.
U.S. economy slowed to
0.1 percent growth rate in Q1
WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy
slowed sharply in the first three months of
the year as a harsh winter exacted a toll on
business activity. The slowdown, while
worse than expected, is likely to be tempo-
rary as growth rebounds with warmer weather.
Growth slowed to a barely discernible 0.1
percent annual rate in the January-March
quarter, the Commerce Department said
Wednesday. That was the weakest pace since
the end of 2012 and was down from a 2.6
percent rate in the previous quarter.
Many economists said the government’s
first estimate of growth in the January-
March quarter was skewed by weak figures
early in the quarter. They noted that several
sectors — from retail sales to manufacturing
output — rebounded in March.
Fed cuts monthly bond
purchases; sounds upbeat
By Joe McDonald
BEIJING — China has rejected a World
Bank report that suggests it might pass the
United States this year to become the
biggest economy measured by its currency’s
purchasing power.
China is on track to become the No. 1
economy by sheer size by the early 2020s
and possibly sooner. But its leaders down-
play such comparisons, possibly to avert
pressure to take on financial obligations or
make concessions on trade or climate
The estimate by the World Bank’s
International Comparison Program says
that based on 2011 prices, the purchasing
power of China’s currency, the yuan, was
much stronger than was reflected by
exchange rates.
By that measure, China’s economy was 87
percent the size of the United States’ i n
2011, or 15 percent bigger than the previ-
ous estimate, according to a calculation by
RBS economist Louis Kuijs. Faster-growing
China would pass the United States in pur-
chasing power terms this year, though it
still would be about 60 percent the size of
the U.S. economy at market exchange rates.

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg,
like Facebook, is maturing. The soon-to-be
30-year-old CEO of the decade-old social
networking company grew reflective as he
stood before hundreds of app developers to
announce a host of mobile features designed
to put “people first.”
“We used to have this famous mantra,
‘move fast and break things,”’ Zuckerberg
said at Facebook’s f8 developer conference
in San Francisco.
But moving quickly was sometimes so
important that Facebook’s engineers would
tolerate a few bugs, or push out products that
were not always fully baked.

shuts down Padres in Giants win
Thursday, May 1, 2014
By Josh Dubow
SAN JOSE — Anze Kopitar scored the
tiebreaking goal late in the second period
and Jonathan Quick made 39 saves to cap
the Los Angeles Kings’ historic comeback
from three games down with a 5-1 victory
over the San Jose Sharks in Game 7 of their
first-round series Wednesday night.
Drew Doughty, Tyler Toffoli, Dustin
Brown and Tanner Pearson also scored for
the Kings, who became the fourth NHLteam
to win a best-of-seven series after losing
the first three games.
The Kings joined Toronto (1942), the
New York Islanders (1975) and Philadelphia
(2010) as the only teams to complete that
comeback and now will get another
California showdown in the second-round
with the first Freeway Playoff against the
Anaheim Ducks.
Matt Irwin scored the lone goal and Antti
Niemi made 25 saves for the Sharks, who
added perhaps their most bitter playoff dis-
appointment to a history of them. San Jose
has the second most regular-season wins in
the NHL the past 10 seasons but has never
made it past the conference finals.
The way the Sharks started this series by
outscoring the Kings 17-8 to win the first
three games, it looked as if this could final-
ly be their year.
But Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and the
rest of their stars went mostly missing the
final four games, the power play could not
convert on its final 15 chances and the
defense made too many lapses, leading to
their second straight Game 7 loss to their
California rivals.
The Sharks took their first lead since
Game 3 in the opening minute of the second
when Irwin’s point shot beat Quick through
a screen to provide a jolt to the crowd that
only got bigger when San Jose drew a
penalty less than a minute later.
Collapse complete
SanJose forward Brent Burns wipes his face during the Sharks’ 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles
Kings, which eliminated the Sharks from the Stanley Cup playoffs.
ormer NBAcommissioner David
Stern is generally regarded as the
best head man of any of the major
sports in the United States. He turned a
league which once had its championship
series on tape delay after the late local
news and turned it into a global force.
In less than three months, however, his
hand-picked protégé,
Adam Silver, has

In fact, Silver has
surpassed all other
commissioners with
one swift stroke —
most notably NFL
head Roger Goodell
and MLB commis-
sioner Bud Selig. In his first major act as
the head of the NBA, Silver swiftly and
concisely did what Stern was unable — or
unwilling — to do when it came to han-
dling Sterling, in which he suspended
him from NBAactivities for life, saddled
him with a $2.5 million fine and will do
everything in his power to force Sterling
to sell the team for his racist remarks
Anyone who has followed sports for

between Sterling and a girlfriend that

Every now and then, a baseball player
needs a day off. It’s during those games that
substitutes need to ready to contribute.
Carlmont’s bench and bullpen came
through big Wednesday when the Scots
hosted Sacred Heart Prep in a key Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division showdown.
Backup catcher Ryan Callahan jumped-start-
ed the Scots’ two-run rally in the third,
Julian Billot came off the bench to drive in
a crucial insurance run in the sixth and
pitcher Joe Pratt threw 4 1/3 innings of
relief to pick up the win in a 3-0 victory
over the Gators.
“We’re starting to play good team base-
ball, Early in the year, that wasn’t there,”
said Carlmont manager Rich Vallero, whose
team has won six of their last seven league
games. “We went through a lot of growing
pains. Since Fresno (where the Scots played
in a spring-break tournament) we’ve come
together as a group.”
Since pulling out an emotional 9-8 victo-
ry over rival Menlo April 23, Sacred Heart
Prep has now lost two straight Bay
Division games. Pitcher Will Johnston
gave his team a chance to win, holding
Carlmont to just three runs (only two
earned) on six hits, but the Gators’ offense
just could not come up the big hit.
The Gators had Carlmont starting pitcher
Ryan Giberton on the ropes early, loading
the bases in the first two innings, but came
up empty. Giberton, Pratt and closer Matt
Seubert held SHP to just three hits on the

South City looked like it might wrap up
things early in Wednesday’s 14-7 rivalry-
game win over El Camino.
Sparked by first-inning home runs by
Shelby Baxter and Leanna Cruz, the Warriors
ran up an 8-1 score through the first two
innings. After stranding the bases loaded in
the first, South City sent nine batters to the
plate amid a six-run second.
Then things got a little weird.
In the bottom of the third, South City junior
Kassidy Lanchinebre injured her left knee and
had to be carried from the field.
South City head coach Manny Cotla
described the play on which Lanchinebre was
injured in detail.
“She got called out on a strike three that got
by the catcher. She was coming back to the
dugout and I told her run because it was an open
base,” Coach Cotla said. “I think when she
made the turn to run she locked up. Her first
reaction was … straight down to the ground.
She said she heard a pop. … It’s a knee. I think
she popped something in the back of knee.”
With the loss of Lanchinebre, the Warriors
— having entered the game with nine players
on their active roster — were forced to play the
final four innings with just eight players.
With the advantage of a veritable power
play, El Camino outscored South City 6-4
over the final four innings, but it was not
enough as the Warriors got a gritty perform-
ance from starting pitcher Emily Cotla and a
standout performance from Baxter at the plate
and in the squat.
After Cotla’s streak of 12 complete games,
dating back to last season, was snapped in
South City’s April 19 non-league loss to
Watsonville, the junior right-hander got
another streak cooking with a complete-game
victory Wednesday. With the win, Cotla
improves her record to 8-5.
It wasn’t easy though. With South City in
dire straits in the circle, Cotla soldiered
through a pretty nasty cough and took several
hits from an asthma inhaler over the course of
the game.

For Carlmont hurdler Franklin
Rice, the biggest things are yet to
That applies to the classroom as
much as it does to the track for the
fourth-year varsity track-and-field
standout, as Rice is headed to the
UC Berkeley College of
Engineering in the fall.
While he doesn’t have a place on
the Cal track and field team, the
Scots top runner still embraces the
dream of competing at the next
“My mission is academic, but I
would love to be able to run on the
Cal-Berkeley team,” Rice said.
“So, I’m going to contact [Cal’s
coach] with the hope of being able
to run for their team.”
In the meantime, Rice has plen-
ty on his plate. First and fore-
most, he is eyeing a qualifying
time for the state track meet June
6-7 at Fresno’s Buchanan High
As for past accomplishments,
such as taking first place in the
triple jump in last year’s
Peninsula Athletic League finals
with a personal best of 42 feet, 6
inches, Rice, as he has done to
most of his PAL competition this
season, has left it in the dust.
“For me, the biggest races are
yet to come,” Rice said. “So, I’m
not going to give any holistic
reviews yet. But so far, within the
league meets, I think I’ve been
running pretty well.”
Rice logs a standard slate of
events for a sprinter. He runs the
110 meter hurdles and the 300 hur-
dles. He also maintains the triple
jump, despite it being less of a
focus for his this season.
“As far as the hurdles and triple
jump are concerned, there hasn’t
been any competition that has
been super close to me that I’ve
encountered so far, Rice said. “I
guess we’ll see at PAL finals how
that goes, and [Central Coast
Section] finals.”
With Carlmont having a bye
Thursday in the final week of regu-
lar-season PALmeets, Rice’s focus
is solely on the postseason. The
PAL trials are slated for next week,
May 9 at 4 p.m. at Terra Nova. The
PAL finals, also at Terra Nova, are
May 17 at 10 a.m. CCS champi-
onships at Gilroy High School are
set for the final week of May, with
trials taking place May 24 and
finals on May 30.
Rice has been a beast in hurdles
events this season and has his eye
on the prize primarily in the 300
hurdles. He finished strong in the
event last season, turning in a per-
sonal record of 39.4 seconds at
CCS finals last season, but fin-
ished in sixth place to miss the cut
for state finals.
“I hope to win the PAL finals in
the hurdles and triple jump, except
my triple jumping isn’t looking
too hot this year. So, I guess we’ll
see about that,” Rice said. “I hope
to do well in CCS in 300 hurdles
and hopefully move on to the state
meet if I can qualify in the top
few. ”
Once torn between running track
and playing baseball as a fresh-
man, Rice started his high school
running career as a distance guy.
He ran cross country as a freshman
then ran track at Carlmont while
concurrently playing baseball for
a non-school league.
“I was really busy, so I had to
make a decision,” Rice said.
Rice not only decided on track,
but also converted to a sprinter as
a sophomore. And he’s been flying
ever since.
Owning an impressive resume as
a sprinter, Rice has a personal
record of 51.1 seconds in the 400
meter, a plateau he reached at the
Don Bell Quicksilver Classic at
Leland High School. Otherwise,
he has predominantly sprinted as a
member of the relay teams this
One of Rice’s main rivalries is
PAL this season has been a friend-
ly one with teammate Alex
Kumamoto. While they are good
friends on and off the track, the
seniors share an intriguing on-
field rivalry.
“I would say we’re definitely
friends before we’re rivals, but
there’s definitely a friendly spirit
of competition between us,” Rice
said. “If one us just barely edges
out the other, we’re always joking
around afterwards about how close
it was. It’s always fun to beat the
other. ”
While Kumamoto and Rice push
each other in the hurdles, Rice is
still trying to push himself to
recover the triple jump form that
showed so much promise last sea-
son. But he said he will use the two
weeks leading up to PAL finals to
get into jumping shape.
“My triple jumps were just a lot
better last year. I’m not sure why, ”
Rice said. “I can probably practice
it more before PAL finals so I can
get it back to the 42, 43 foot
Carlmont’s Rice ready for postseason
Carlmont’s Franklin Rice is looking for a spot in the state track meet,but first
needs to perform well in the PAL and CCS championships.
ARLINGTON, Texas — Jesse Chavez
allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings,
Eric Sogard matched his season total with
three RBIs on Wednesday night and the
Oakland Athletics completed a three-game
sweep with a 12-1 rout of the sloppy Texas
Yoenis Cespedes had two doubles, scored
twice and drove in two runs for the A’s, who
scored 10 runs combined in the third and
fourth innings to answer a three-game
sweep by the Rangers in Oakland last week.
The Rangers matched a season high with
four errors, including one of two by short-
stop Elvis Andrus on what could have been
an inning-ending double play in Oakland’s
seven-run third.
Chavez (2-0) walked one and struck out
eight, allowing only Prince Fielder’s soft
line-drive single to right-center field in the
first inning.
Robbie Ross (1-2) gave up 11 hits and 10
runs in 3 1-3 innings, the shortest outing of
the left-hander’s first season as a starter.
Just six runs were earned because of Andrus’
second error in Texas’
fourth straight loss.
Alberto Callaspo and
Derek Norris had three
hits each among a sea-
son-high 17 for Oakland.
Two of Norris’ hits were
infield singles on chop-
pers to Texas third base-
man Adrian Beltre and
played big roles in
Oakland building a 10-0 lead.
The burly catcher hustled to beat Beltre’s
throw for the fifth straight Oakland hit in
the third. An inning later, Craig Gentry
scored as Beltre’s throw skipped past Fielder
for an error, and right fielder Alex Rios was
charged with an error trying to get Cespedes
at home when his throw went to the back-
Andrus, who went 0 for 2 and has one hit
in his past 28 at-bats, had his other error in
the first inning when his throw went several
feet over Fielder’s head on a routine
grounder by Josh Donaldson.
Cespedes had a two-run double for a 3-0
Oakland lead in the third before the first of
Norris’ infield hits. Callaspo followed with
an easy grounder to Andrus, but the ball
went between his legs into center field.
Sogard later made it 7-0 with a two-run sin-
gle and added an RBI single in the fourth.
Coco Crisp hit his third homer of the sea-
son, a solo shot to right field in the sixth
for a 12-0 lead. It was the only homer of the
series in a ballpark that’s never had a three-
game set without at least one home run.
Texas ended the shutout in the eighth
when Josh Wilson’s double off reliever Luke
Gregerson scored Leonys Martin.

Oakland starter lost to the season-ending
procedure this year. Jarrod Parker underwent
the same surgery before the season. ...

Sequoia 5, King’s Academy 1
Kyle Cambron fired his sixth consecutive
complete game Tuesday as the Cherokees
scored late in support of their ace right-han-
der. Cambron locked up with King’s
Academy starter Zach Hansen to take a dead-
locked 0-0 score into the fifth, but Sequoia
rallied for three runs in the top of the inning
then added two more in the sixth. Cherokees
senior Cameron Greenough has his biggest
day of the season, going 3 for 3 with a dou-
ble and two RBIs. Greenough is currently
hitting .327 on the season. Michael Svozil
added a 3-for-3 day for King’s Academy.
With the win, Sequoia (8-3 in Peninsula
Athletic League Ocean Division, 17-5-1
overall) remains in first place in the PAL
Ocean Division, one game ahead of second-
place Aragon and Hillsdale, tied at 7-4 in
Aragon 9, Mills 4
The Vikings jumped out to a 4-3 lead in
the top of the third but the Dons tied it with
a run in the bottom of the frame before ral-
lying for three in the fourth to take the lead
for good Tuesday. Chad Franquez worked five
innings to earn his fifth win in his last six
starts. The junior right-hander is now 5-2
with a 2.04 ERA. Third baseman Chris
Davis paced the Dons with a 3-for-4 day
with an RBI. Kevin Hahn and Matt
Foppiano had two hits apiece.
Hillsdale 6, Woodside 5
Hillsdale rallied late with three runs in the
sixth to force extra innings before winning
it in the eighth. The Knights got four two-
hit days from Riki Urata, Andrew Yarak,
Brett Wetteland and Taran Pass. Wetteland
had a double and three RBIs while Pass hit
his first home run of the season.
Capuchino 10, El Camino 3
Cap lefty Joe Galea fired a complete game
to improve to 5-2 Tuesday. It was the
senior’s first win since March 20 against
King’s Academy. Since then, Galea has
allowed 15 runs in his last six games to
maintain a 2.33 ERA. Galea and Rory
McDaid each had three hits in the game,
with Galea going off at the plate to the tune
of five RBIs — his career high.
Westmont 12, Menlo 3
Westmont (14-8 overall) scored seven
runs in the first en route to banging out 16
hits in non-league play Tuesday. Westmont
junior Dan Speciale had his best day of the
season, going 3 for 5 with a triple and three
RBIs. Ian Balbas worked five inning to earn
the win, improving to 3-0 on the year.
Menlo (13-9) had two-hit performances by
Jared Lucian and Christian Pluchar. Lucian,
a sophomore, currently ranks second on the
team with a .381 batting average. Sam
Crowder paces the Knights with 27 hits and
a .386 average.
Terra Nova 3, Menlo-Atherton 0
The first-place Tigers (5-1 in PAL Ocean
Division, 7-10 overall) won their third
straight to remain a game ahead of South
City and Mills (tied at 4-2 in league) in the
Ocean Division. Terra Nova sophomore
right-hander Makena Borovina tabbed five
strikeouts behind a complete-game shutout.
Her battery mate, sophomore catcher Taylor
Gomes, continued to excel at the plate with
a three-hit day. Terra Nova’s Kela Kapuni
added two hits and two RBIs. Sarah Tiemann
paced the Bears with two hits.
Woodside 2, Burlingame 1
Wildcats senior Christina Patton rolled to
her ninth complete game of the season
Tuesday, experiencing a mere hiccup in the
fourth inning. Woodside (5-4 in PAL Bay
Division, 10-11 overall) jumped out to a 1-
0 lead in the third. After Burlingame tied it
in the top of the fourth, the Wildcats
responded with the go-ahead run in the bot-
tom of the frame and didn’t look back.
Senior Madison Diamos and sophomore
Lexi Ricardi each tabbed two hits for the
Wildcats. Burlingame junior Melissa
Guevara was 2 for 3. The Panthers (1-8, 5-
15) committed four errors in the game.
Capuchino 6, Aragon 0
Cap starter Rafaela Dade fired her 20th
complete game in as many starts Tuesday to
keep the Mustangs in the thick of the PAL
Bay Division race. The Mustangs (6-3 in
Bay Division, 13-8 overall) are currently in
third place, a half game back of second-
place Half Moon Bay. Undefeated Carlmont
at 8-0 in the Bay is threatening to run away
with the league title. Dade allowed six hits
and relied on strong defense while striking
out just two. The Lady Mustangs tallied
three two-run innings with rallies in the
second, fourth and seventh.
Hillsdale 2, Soquel 0
The Knights managed just three hits in
non-league play Tuesday but it was enough
behind the shutout gem by Eryn McCoy.
The right-hander improves to 11-5 with a
0.83 ERA. Hillsdale junior Meagan Wells
had two of her teams three hits with 2-for-3
day. Junior Bailey Neston was 1 for 3 with
two RBIs.

SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Hudson and
Sergio Romo combined on a five-hitter and
the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego
Padres 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Hudson (4-1) struck out six and didn’t
walk a batter for the fourth time in five starts
this season. The Giants’ most consistent
starter in his first season with the club,
Hudson has walked two batters in 46
The three-time All-Star was one pitch
from recording his first shutout in nearly
two years before Yasmani Grandal’s two-out
home run in the ninth.
Brandon Hicks homered and Michael
Morse drove in his team-leading 20th RBI
for the Giants, who finished 5-1 on their
Cameron Maybin doubled and scored for
San Diego, which has lost 10 consecutive
series at AT&T Park.
Hudson allowed only one runner past sec-
ond base until Grandal’s home run in the
ninth, and had two stretches where he retired
nine straight batters.
The right-hander helped his cause at the
plate with a single in the second and a key
sacrifice bunt in the seventh that put the
eventual winning run in scoring position.
Hudson has pitched at least seven innings
in each of his six starts this season, the
longest streak by a San Francisco pitcher in
his first year with the club since Livian
Hernandez’s six-game stretch in 2002.
Hudson was sharp early and needed only
19 pitches to retire the first seven batters.
After giving up a one-out single to Jace
Peterson in the third, the three-time All-Star
struck out San Diego pitcher Robbie Erlin
and Everth Cabrera.
The only other hits the Padres managed
came on a two-out double by Grandal in the
fourth, a single by Jedd Gyorko in the sev-
enth and a leadoff double by Maybin in the
eighth. Maybin scored on Alexi Amarista’s
The Giants, playing without leadoff hitter
Angel Pagan and third baseman Pablo
Sandoval, backed Hudson with just enough
offense. Every starter except leadoff man
Juan Perez had at least one hit.

former commissioner Stern never took any
action. Silver deserves respect for doing
what other commissioners have failed to do
— take a stand on divisive issues.
Goodell and his predecessor Paul
Tagliabue never did. The NFL still has a
team that uses a racial slur for one of its
team’s mascots — the Washington
Redskins — but have yet to do anything
about it, seemingly incapable of forcing
Washington owner Daniel Snyder to
We all know Selig’s shortcomings —
the biggest being turning a blind eye to
the steroid issue, as well as his feet drag-
ging on the Oakland A’s-San Francisco
Giants’ territorial issue.
And yet all these former commissioners
have been feted upon their retirement or
have been praised for turning a league (the
NFL) from a billion-dollar entity into a
multi-billion dollar tour de force.
The common refrain is professional
sports commissioners work for the league
owners and do their bidding. Silver proved
that his job — first and foremost — is to
do what is best for the integrity of the
league. His handling of Sterling proved he
is willing to take a stand, unlike the oth-
But it would be hard to believe Silver
would take such unprecedented steps with-
out having several key owners in his cor-
ner, knowing, ultimately, it will be the
other 30 NBAowners who will decide if
Sterling is forced to sell his team.
It’s time the NFL and MLB follow the
lead of Silver and act in the best interests
of the leagues and not to kowtow to other
owners. It’s time professional sports own-
ers are held accountable for what their peers
Sure, Silver’s announcement may have
had nothing to do with a racist owner and
everything to do with preserving advertis-
ing dollars. Whatever the reason, the NBA
finally needed to deal with Sterling and it
was Silver who was willing to take the
drastic steps.
What will the NFL and MLB do?

but Giberton induced Will Reilly to fly out to
center to end the first-inning threat.
In the second, Charlie Boyden led off with
a walk. AKyle Johnson sacrifice bunt moved
him to second, but Chris Lee flew out to cen-
ter for the second out. Andrew Robinson and
Johnston drew back-to-back walks to load
the bases again, ending Giberton’s day.
Vallero turned to Pratt, who got a grounder
on the first pitch he threw for an out to end
the threat.
It was a sign of things to come as Pratt
mowed down the SHPbatters. He threw a five-
pitch third, 10 more in the fourth, 11 in the
fifth, 12 more in the sixth and three more in
the seventh, allowing just two hits and strik-
ing out three before Seubert came in to shut
the door to earn his first save of the year.
“[Pratt] gave us a big lift,” Vallero said.
“SHP is a great program.”
With Pratt in control on the mound, it took
the Carlmont offense a few innings to figure
out Johnston.
“That guy (Johnston) they threw was as
good as we’ve seen,” Vallero said.
Said Franceschi: “[Johnston has] been
great for us all year long. He’s kept us in
games, kept it close. He’s probably been our
team’s MVP. ”
It was Callahan, a backup catcher, who first
solved Johnston and ignited a Scots’ rally in
the bottom of the third. Callahan picked up
the Scots’ first hit of the game, a single to
left, to lead off the inning. ANick Thompson
sacrifice bunt moved courtesy runner Billot
into scoring position to bring up leadoff hit-
ter Aaron Albaum, who cracked a double into
the left-center field gap for an RBI. Albaum
would later end up scoring from third on a
passed ball.
“[Callahan] is not foreign to being a con-
tributor,” Vallero said. “What a way to
respond. He’s a competitor. He stayed ready
for an opportunity. He’s been dying to get
out there and compete.”
Callahan would add a double in the fifth to
be the only Scots player to finish with two
In the sixth, it was Billot who came
through. Normally a starter, Billot started
the game on the bench and came into the
game in the top of the fifth. In the bottom of
the sixth, he came to the plate with Alex
Pennes on second base. Pennes reached on
an error and moved to second on a sacrifice
With Billot facing a 2-1 count, he crushed
a Johnston offering deep into the left-field
corner, staying just fair and hopping over
the fence for an RBI, ground-rule double and
a 3-0 Carlmont lead.
“[Billot has] started every game and he was
a little upset (he wasn’t in the starting line-
up),” Vallero said. “I went up to him, put my
arm around his shoulder and said, ‘You might
not have an impact early in the game, but
there’s no reason you can’t make an impact
late, so stay ready. ’ He said, ‘You’re right.’
“I think we’re starting to hit our stride
right now. ”

Carlmont’s AaronAlbaum beats the throw to SHP pitcher Will Johnston to score the Scots’ first run in a 3-0 Carlmont win over the Gators.
According to Coach Cotla, because she was
running a fever, he had a mind to call up a
pitcher from the frosh-soph squad. However,
South City’s frosh-soph pitcher, freshman
Natty Cerecedes, had her wisdom teeth
removed earlier in the week.
So, with Cotla’s gutsy performance, South
City didn’t have to turn to its emergency
pitcher — Baxter.
“They told me I might have to go in and
pitch and I’m not a pitcher,” Baxter said.
Baxter may as well have pitched because she
did pretty much everything else. She was on
base all day long. The freshman leadoff hitter
reached base in all five of her plate appear-
ances, going 2 for 2 with three walks while
scoring four times.
Behind the plate, Baxter was a game-chang-
er as well. She gunned down one would-be
base stealer in the third and was firing throws
behind base runners to keep the Colts’ run-
ning game in check throughout.
“That’s probably like my favorite thing to
do,” Baxter said. “My arm has gotten a lot bet-
ter lately. It’s fun when you can get the out.”
Then in the fifth, Baxter turned in the play
of the game by thoroughly preventing El
Camino’s Sara Baros from crossing the plate
on a potential home run. Baros his a booming
fly to left field, but South City gunned her
down at the plate on a relay from left fielder
Kiyani Punzal to shortstop Cruz to Baxter,
who completely sacrificed her body to block
the dish while gathering the relay throw from
Cruz to apply the tag on a bang-bang play.
El Camino rallied in the seventh, with
Alicia Ortega leading off the frame by smok-
ing a home run to left. After the Colts pushed
another run across on an RBI single by Ashley
Jimenez, Cotla buckled down to induce a pop-
up behind the mound which she caught on the
run to end it.
“It’s always fun playing against South
City,” El Camino head coach Hazel
Quintianilla said. “It’s a little bit more
intense, of course. The first time we played
them we didn’t do so well. [This] time,
although we lost, we did a whole lot better. We
played like a better team.”
With the win, second-place South City (5-2
in league, 11-6 overall) is currently a half
game back of first-place Terra Nova in the
Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division.
The Tigers (5-1, 7-10) travel to Jefferson
Thursday. South City has five games remain-
ing on the Ocean Division schedule.
“This was a big one for us because it keeps
us right in the hunt,” Coach Cotla said. “We’re
actually just one game behind Terra Nova
because we [lost to them earlier this season].
If we can play good and run the table, our last
game is against them at Terra Nova. So, that
can mean something.”

Atletico beats Chelsea 3-1, plays Real
Madrid in Champions League final
LONDON — A season of the unexpected
for Atletico Madrid will end with its first
Champions League final in 40 years — and
against no less than its hometown rival.
Having already broken up the established
order of Spanish soccer, the capital’s No. 2
team overpowered Chelsea 3-1 Wednesday
night on goals by Adrian Lopez, Diego
Costa and Arda Turan.
Real Madrid, seeking a record 10th title,
will play Atletico at Lisbon on May 24 in
the second straight one-nation Champions
League final and the first that is a city derby.
“They’re a very powerful club used to
those big European nights,” Atletico coach
Diego Simeone said. “It’s been many years
for us as a club, so it’ll be a new experience,
but we’re keen and excited.
In its only previous appearance in the
European final, Atletico lost a replay to
Bayern 4-0 in 1974 after a 0-0 tie.
Also seeking its first La Liga title since
1996, Atletico has a four-point lead over
second-place Barcelona with three games
left and is six points ahead of Real, which
has four matches remaining.
In La Liga this season, Atletico won 1-0
at Real Madrid in September and tied 1-1 at
home in March. Real swept their Copa del
Rey matches in February 3-0 and 2-0.
Last May, Atletico beat Real in the Copa
del Rey final, ending a 14-year, 25-game
winless streak against its rival.
“Playing like we play, we are the
strongest team in the world,” Atletico mid-
fielder Tiago said. “And we deserve what we
have in this moment.”
Following a 0-0 tie in Spain last week,
Fernando Torres put Chelsea in front in the
36th minute, shooting off a cut-back pass
from Cesar Azpilicueta and beating goal-
keeper Thibaut Courtois with a 10-yard shot
that deflected off Mario Suarez. Torres, who
has just 10 goals this season, didn’t cele-
brate after scoring against his former team.

But a hooking call on Tommy Wingels
negated that power play and Logan Couture
then got called for an elbowing penalty, giv-
ing Los Angeles a two-man advantage for 6
seconds. Before Wingels could get back into
the play, Doughty tied it when he beat Niemi
from the faceoff circle.
The Sharks had three more power plays in
the second period to give them a chance to
go back ahead but Los Angeles killed every
one of them with Quick robbing Marleau
with a glove save on the goal line to thwart
San Jose’s best chance.
That save was emblematic of a remarkable
turnaround this series for Quick, who allowed
16 goals the first three games but held the
Sharks to just five over the final four wins.
The Kings responded after the fourth
penalty kill when last year’s Game 7 hero
Justin Williams found Kopitar, who made a
nifty move to beat Niemi with a backhand to
give him points in all seven games this
Toffoli’s goal in the opening minutes of
the third period off a pretty no-look feed
from Pearson gave the Kings insurance and
they tightened things up the rest of the way
to seal the win.
Brown and Pearson added empty-netters
late to seal the win.
NOTES: The Kings became the fifth team
to beat the same opponent in Game 7 in con-
secutive seasons. ... Both teams were with-
out a key defenseman as San Jose’s Marc-
Edouard Vlasic missed his second straight
game with an upper-body injury and Willie
Mitchell was out for Los Angeles after get-
ting hurt in Game 6.

To get the most out of any organic fertil-
izer, keep in mind how plants feed and how
these fertilizers act in the soil.
The bulk of a plant’s feeder roots —
whether it’s a midget marigold or a mighty
oak — lie just beneath the surface, so gen-
erally there is no need to dig fertilizer deep
into the soil. Anyway, low oxygen levels
there would retard microbial growth, which
is necessary to unlock nutrients from most
organic fertilizers.
An exception to that “no dig” rule is when
phosphorus levels are low, as indicated by a
soil test or stunted plants that are purplish
when young or late to ripen. (Cold soil in
spring also can cause a phosphorus defi-
ciency, a temporary one that abates as soon
as soil warms and roots start reaching out.)
Phosphorus moves very slowly in the soil,
so the only way to get it quickly into the
root zone is to mix it into the top 6 to 12
inches of soil.
Once a soil is up to snuff with phospho-
rus, periodic surface applications can trick-
le down through the soil fast enough to
maintain adequate levels throughout the
root zone.
When should you apply organic fertiliz-
ers? Remember that the nutrients in most of
them are initially insoluble and in forms
that plants cannot use. Account for the time
lag between application and nutrient release
by spreading organic fertilizers a few weeks
before planting. Even a few months before
planting, or way back late last fall.
Because soil microorganisms need time,
warmth and moisture to release nutrients
from organic fertilizers, plants may have to
wait to eat in dry soil. Of course, plants

There’s no time like the present,
especially when it comes to spring
gardening. Many garden chores are
time sensitive, especially those
involving plants.
Planting, transplanting, dividing
and pruning plants at the appropriate
time of year not only makes those
jobs easier; it can also determine the
difference between success and fail-
Such is the case with transplanting
perennials. The cool temperatures of
early spring, combined with ample
moisture in the ground and increased
daylight, provide optimal growing
conditions for garden perennials.
These same conditions can also help
reduce transplanting stress.
Now that the ground has thawed
(after this last winter I wondered if
that would ever happen), many herba-
ceous perennial plants are showing
signs of new growth at their crowns.
Herbaceous perennials are those that
die back to the ground every fall, and
the crown in most cases is where the
plant’s roots and the surface of the
soil meet.
Once perennial plants exhibit
signs of growth from the crown, it is
generally OK to transplant them. In
fact, for many perennials the sooner
you transplant them after they show
signs of life, the better.
Digging up a plant inevitably sev-
ers roots, which can stress a plant.
Roots not only anchor a plant in
place but they also transport water
and nutrients to leaves and stems
above ground. When conditions are
favorable, most plants quickly grow
new roots to replace those that are
Early in the season perennial
plants have yet to produce abundant
amounts of growth. They therefore
have fewer leaves from which to lose
moisture and less demand for water
from their roots.
Many perennials, if transplanted
early enough in the season, will be
no worse for the wear after being
moved. They will flower in their new
homes without skipping a beat.
Transplanting too late in the season,
however, can cause plants to abort
their flowering cycles in response to
the stress of not having enough roots
to support new growth.
Planting, as with transplanting,
tends to be less stressful for most
cold hardy plants when done early in
the season, rather than later.
Trees, shrubs and perennials that
are in containers or have their roots
wrapped in burlap have the same
challenges that a transplanted peren-
nial has; they need to send out new
roots into the ground to support new
growth above ground.
Generally speaking, the larger the
plant the slower the root system
grows. Keep this in mind for newly
planted trees and shrubs, especially
during the first season they are plant-
ed. Your new tree may not require
extra watering during the spring
when regular rainfall occurs, but it
will benefit greatly from regular
watering in July and August when it is
hot and dry.
Planting in early spring is ideal for
almost any plant. Cool, moist earth
is ideal for forming new roots.
Planting as early as the ground can be
worked, provided the soil is not
waterlogged, often yields best results
especially with trees.
Planting can certainly be success-
ful later in the season, but keep in
mind that trees, shrubs and perenni-
als alike need moisture around their
root zones in order to grow new
roots. Increased temperatures during
the summer months also cause plants
to lose moisture through their leaves
at a rapid rate, often before they have
grown root systems large enough to
supply the extra demand.
If you’re planning to plant new
trees or shrubs, relocate garden
perennials to new locations or plant
new ones, don’t waste the ideal con-
ditions of spring. Your best chances
for success are while the cool weather
If you’re planting and moving perennials, time is of the essence
Transplanting trees and herbaceous perennials is best done
in the cool early spring.

grow but little in dry soil, so their fertilizer
needs are less. In this case, watering not
only quenches a plant’s thirst, but also
makes food available.
Occasionally, you may have to tailor
your fertilizer to special conditions. For
instance, a spell of unseasonably cool
weather in spring slows microbial activi-
t y. If you must spur plant growth then,
apply a light application of some soluble
organic fertilizer whose nutrients are
quickly available — blood meal or fish
emulsion, for example.
A quick-acting fertilizer might also be
needed when a plant is so hungry that it
actually shows symptoms of starvation,
such as yellowing, older leaves. Leaves can
absorb nutrients directly, and for a really
quick effect, you could spray a soluble
organic fertilizer such as seaweed extract or
fish emulsion right on leaves. Avoid plant
injury by reading label directions and fol-
lowing specified rates carefully.
Consider using quick-acting fertilizers as
quick fixes only. Build up good reserves of
nutrients in your soil and such applications
will be unnecessary.
Consider the slow action of organic fertil-
izers as a benefit. You only need to apply
them once a year and, because heat and
warmth spur microbial activity and plant
growth, the nutrients are released in sync
with plant needs.
As I point out in the fertilizer section of
my book “Weedless Gardening” (Workman
Publishing), spreading an inch of compost
or a few inches of leaves, wood chips or
some other organic mulch over the ground
each year will usually provide all the nour-
ishment your plants need.
The hungriest parts of the garden are veg-
etable and formal flower beds, so I like to
feed the ground there with compost, which
is an organic material relatively rich in
nutrients. Less needy are trees and shrubs,
informal flowers and wildflowers; here, any
organic mulch, from wood ships to straw to
pine needles, will suffice. Over the years,
the compost or other organic mulches will
enrich the soil to offer a spectrum of nutri-
ents available to plants, a much wider spec-
trum that would be available from any chem-
ical fertilizer.
In naturally poor soils, some additional,
more concentrated, nitrogen fertilizer
might — just might — also be needed for a
year or more until the soil is up to snuff.
Soybean meal or alfalfa meal is usually sold
as an animal feed, but sprinkled over the
ground just before some organic mulch is
applied it’s a convenient, nourishing and
organic “feed” for plants also. Apply a cou-
ple of pounds per hundred square feet.

over the last 10 years or so, so it’s become
kind of a niche market.”
Fishermen earn more when they sell off
their boat and Bunch said last year rates
were $8 to $10 per pound for a whole fish
while wholesalers offered as low as $5.25.
Prices fluctuate throughout the season and
this year’s won’t be determined until
salmon are unloaded and the market heats
Effects of the drought
Jim Anderson, commercial fisherman and
captain of the Allaine, is involved in
salmon conservation and advocating for the
local fishing community in Half Moon Bay.
The amount of catchable fish, harbor
rates, fish buying fees and the potential
release of old frozen salmon could con-
tribute to what a fisherman can expect to
earn, Anderson said.
To promote healthy salmon populations
and combat drought conditions, govern-
ment and local agencies are releasing juve-
nile salmon from hatcheries down river or
into the ocean. A program in Half Moon
Bay began three years ago to help sustain
the local industry. Last year, about 420,000
juvenile salmon were released into nets off
the dock and this year another 360,000,
Anderson said.
Because salmon take about three years to
fully grow, they expect to gather data from
the released salmon with coated wire tags,
Anderson said.
“We’re hoping to see what the survival
rate is, what the catchability is on the fish
and how many go back to the hatchery and
how many stray and all those issues that are
really concerns of the fisheries. We’ll be
able to track all these things,” Anderson
said. “It’s been amazing to see [people] get
together and deal with the drought. It’s real-
ly neat that the different agencies have
come up with contingency plans.”
The drought has affected river flow rates
and water temperatures making conserva-
tion efforts more critical then ever,
Anderson said.
Anderson said he and Mike McHenry,
owner of the unloading station Pillar Point
Fisheries, have been able to disperse anoth-
er 400,000 from McHenry’s boat under the
Golden Gate.
McHenry said he owns a private hoist on
Johnson Pier and makes his living through
offloading fees.
Fish buying fees
About two years ago, the San Mateo
County Harbor District raised Pillar Point
Harbor’s fish buying fees to some of the
highest in the state.
Now, Pillar Point Fisheries, Morning Star
Fisheries and Three Captains Sea Products
all pay an extra $400 a month in base rent
and for the first time became subject to
offloading fees.
McHenry said depending on what he’s
unloading, he’s having to pay a third of his
profit to the harbor. Anderson and McHenry
say the inflated costs trickle down to the
fishermen and are driving some away.
“My thoughts are [the district is] in the
harbor business, the berth business, the
lease business, etc. Don’t try and get a piece
of the fisherman’s action. They’re the guys
taking the risk, they’re the ones that don’t
come home at night,” McHenry said.
Anderson and McHenry said the San
Francisco and Moss Beach harbors don’t
charge any offloading fees. They fear local
fisherman will go elsewhere and Pillar Point
Harbor will find it’s pushing out those who
have supported it for decades.
“When they raised the slip fees and the
overnight fees they pretty much drove the
salmon fleet away,” Anderson said.
When the fish buying leases were redrafted
in 2012, a provision allowing the three
renters to have a second hoist was included
and last month the Three Captains installed
another in the center of the pier. Some have
speculated the private new hoist in a prime
location was a perk, will be inconvenient
for others and gives Three Captains an
unfair advantage.
Off-the-boat sales
Anderson and Bunch said they would first
focus on off-the-boat sales because that’s
where they’ll see the most profit .
Bunch said depending on the harvest,
what he can’t sell off the boat he’ll sell to a
boutique buyer who works out of San
Francisco and sells to high-end restaurants
eager for fresh, local product.
The fishermen encourage the public to
pack a cooler full of ice, spend an enjoyable
day on the coast and take home fresh
salmon that supports the county’s busiest
“One of the long term goals of this off-
the-boat sales, and this is one of the only
harbors that does it, is to get more and more
people coming [to Pillar Point] … to buy
fish because they know they’re getting a
premium product,” Bunch said.

any given time, download the free FishLine
App available on iTunes or call the Pillar
Point Harbor Master at (650) 726-4382.

up and up just like during the dot-com
boom,” she said. “People are willing
to pay the prices because there’s such
limited inventory. ... In any given
week, we’ll run out of one-bedrooms or
don’t have any studios available. It
really sort of cycles.”
She notes houses get snatched up
pretty quickly. Clients are having to
make some concessions to find a place
to live too. She leased a house in
Burlingame last year with no heat.
“There’s something out there for
everything,” she said. “Whether
there’s no heat or it’s little tiny one-
bedrooms that people will rent.”
Those like Mark Moulton, executive
director of the Housing Leadership
Council of San Mateo County, say the
discussion of housing in the county
needs to be reframed and seen as an
opportunity. His group works to accel-
erate the production of new homes in
the county at all affordability levels to
create opportunities and a viable quali-
ty of life.
“Let’s ask, ‘Who needs housing?’ he
wrote in an email. “’Why do they need
it?’ ‘Why does housing at the level
they can afford to pay, not now exist in
San Mateo County?’ Take a look at the
downtown specific plan in Redwood
City. Take a look at the Grand
Boulevard Initiative. Ask, ‘Is San
Mateo County together as 21 jurisdic-
tions a place that can discuss the
opportunity to grow our rate of hous-
ing production to meet our jobs
There needs to be a forum to discuss
growing housing production, Moulton
In the context of the recent local
housing element updates, a coalition
of groups, including the Housing
Council, Greenbelt Alliance and
Sustainable San Mateo County, sent
letters to each of the county’s city
councilmembers, along with a list of
policies that may help the situation.
“We believe that the implications of
these high housing costs for our com-
munity are serious and profound,” the
letter dated March 27 stated. “They are
regularly cited as one of the key con-
straints to economic development in
San Mateo County. ”
More development in priority areas
and other transit-served locations
carry with it the risk of displacement
of existing low-income populations,
the groups wrote. Potential policies
recommended to the councils by the
groups included committing to devel-
opment without displacement; consid-
ering displacement risks early in the
development process; focusing on
both direct displacement and indirect
displacement; stabilizing existing
lower income residents/housing; con-
sidering rent stabilization, just cause
eviction ordinances, one-for-one
replacement of any housing removed
from the supply and condominium
conversion controls; and making
affordable housing a key component
of development strategy from the
Meanwhile, the county’s homeless
rate has risen 12 percent since 2011,
according to a report from the county’s
Health and Human Services Agency,
compiled in January 2013. There are
2,281 homeless people in the county
as of January, with 1,299 unsheltered
homeless people and 982 sheltered
homeless people, according to the
report. The next homelessness count
will be conducted in January 2015.
The number of people seeking shel-
ter space doesn’t seem to have changed
much since the last count, said Wendy
Goldberg, homeless and shelter care
manager at the Human Services
Agency. One thing that has changed is
that the Project WeHOPE shelter in
East Palo Alto changed from being a
seasonal shelter from Nov. 15 through
April 15 to year round through county
funding, making 50 extra beds avail-
“There is an increase in the number
of beds available in county year round,
which is great,” she said. “There still
are people waiting to get into the shel-
ters who are staying with friends or
staying in a motel.”
There are usually about 40-60 people
per night who come and request shelter
space and aren’t able to get immediate
shelter, she said.

downtown beautification project first
began in April 2013, reduced parking,
fewer patrons and a torn-up street were
among the complaints from business
owners. From now until May 2, there
will be sidewalk work and streetscape
work on the eastern half of the block
between Primrose Road and El Camino
Real on the 1400 block of Burlingame
“We are all about serving happiness
and this construction on Burlingame
Avenue just isn’t a happy or welcom-
ing experience for our guests,”
Jonathan Kaplan, founder and CEO of
The Melt, said in a prepared statement.
“We look forward to welcoming
Burlingame residents to our other Bay
Area locations. … In the fall, we look
forward to celebrating with a grand
reopening when the construction on
Burlingame Avenue is complete.”
The city understands from where the
company is coming, said Mayor
Michael Brownrigg.
“We’ve tried our very best to run a
major construction project with as lit-
tle disruption as possible, but we all
went in with our eyes open and knew
this was going to be hard,” he said.
“We will have their block done pretty
soon, so life will get better for them.”
Once the construction moved to our
block in January, the dust and debris
didn’t create a happy or welcoming
experience for guests and The Melt
staff, the company said. In addition to
the work being done on the eastern
half of the block, there is also side-
walk and streetscape being done on
the western half of the 1400 block.
There is a partial closure of the inter-
section at Primrose Road and El
Camino Real.
All Burlingame residents who visit
other locations will receive a compli-
mentary ice cone with any Melt pur-
chase. All Burlingame employees will
be temporarily relocated to the
Stanford and Redwood City stores. The
store will use this as opportunity for a
few renovations but other than that, it
is simply closing the space temporari-
l y, Kaplan said.
The Melt first opened and has a menu
that includes sandwiches such as The
Classic with aged cheddar on white
bread and The Mission that includes
pepper jack cheese and jalapeños on
sourdough bread. The franchise first
opened in San Francisco’s SOMA
neighborhood in 2011.
The 14- to 16-month beautification
of Burlingame Avenue includes more
pedestrian-friendly features, with side-
walks widened from 10 to 16 feet, more
landscaping and outside dining space.
Parking is moving from slanted to par-
allel and the street’s two lanes will be
thinned to a total of 20 feet. The $16.5
million project is expected to be com-
pleted by the end of summer.

Knight is now facing a potential
second strike if convicted.
Knight, who has seven
prior convictions, was
arrested Feb. 15 in Daly
City on suspicion of pos-
sessing a stolen car. He was
given an April 3 prelimi-
nary hearing date at the
South San Francisco court-
house and released on
$50,000 bail.
The day before the hear-
ing, Knight reportedly
stole a Honda Accord in
Daly City which police
found parked on the street.
The Vehicle Theft Task
Force later secretly placed a
tracker on the car which
Knight drove April 3 to the
“He obviously wanted to
make sure he didn’t fail to
appear,” District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe said.
At his hearing, Knight’s
case was continued so he
left. Task force agents
arrested him after he got in
the car to drive away. The
car ignition had been punched out
with a screwdriver which police
reported finding on the floorboard.
Knight has pleaded not guilty in
the new case but was held to answer
on all charges after an April 15 pre-
liminary hearing. He appeared in
court Wednesday to set a June 16 jury
trial and is also due back May 2 for a
preliminary hearing in the older case.
Wagstaffe expects the two to be
scheduled together in the future.
Knight remains in custody on
$100,000 bail.

DUBLIN — Police in Northern Ireland
arrested Sinn Fein party leader Gerry Adams
on Wednesday over his alleged involvement
in the Irish Republican Army’s 1972 abduc-
tion, killing and secret burial of a Belfast
Adams, 65, confirmed his own arrest in a
prepared statement and described it as a vol-
untary, prearranged interview.
Police long had been expected to question
Adams about the killing of Jean
McConville, a 38-year-old mother of 10
whom the IRA killed with a single gunshot
to the head as an alleged spy.
According to all authoritative histories of
the Sinn Fein-IRAmovement, Adams served
as an IRAcommander for decades, but he has
always denied holding any position in the
outlawed group.
“I believe that the killing of Jean
McConville and the secret burial of her body
was wrong and a grievous injustice to her
and her family,” Adams said. “Well publi-
cized, malicious allegations have been made
against me. I reject these. While I have
never disassociated myself from the IRAand
I never will, I am innocent of any part in the
abduction, killing or burial of Mrs.
Reflecting the embarrassment associated
with killing a widowed mother, the IRA did
not admit the killing
until 1999, when it
claimed responsibility
for nearly a dozen slay-
ings of long-vanished
civilians and offered to
try to pinpoint their
unmarked graves.
McConville’s children
had been told she aban-
doned them, and they
were divided into different foster homes.
Her remains were discovered only by acci-
dent near a Republic of Ireland beach in
2003. The woman’s skull bore a single bul-
let mark through the back of the skull, and
forensics officer determined she’d been shot
once through back of the head with a rifle.
Adams was implicated in the killing by
two IRA veterans, who gave taped inter-
views to researchers for a Boston College
history archive on the four-decade Northern
Ireland conflict. Belfast police waged a two-
year legal fight in the United States to
acquire the interviews, parts of which
already were published after the 2008 death
of one IRAinterviewee, Brendan Hughes.
Boston College immediately handed over
the Hughes tapes. The college and
researchers fought unsuccessfully to avoid
handover tapes of the second IRA intervie-
wee, Dolours Price, who died last year.
Both Hughes and Price agreed to be inter-
viewed on condition that their contents
were kept confidential until their deaths.

LONDON — Bob Hoskins never lost his
Cockney accent, even as he became a glob-
al star who charmed and alarmed audiences in
a vast range of roles.
Short and bald, with a face he once com-
pared to “a squashed cabbage,” Hoskins was
a remarkably versatile performer. As a
London gangster in “The Long Good
Friday,” he moved from bravura bluster to
tragic understatement. In “Who Framed
Roger Rabbit,” he cavorted with a cast of
animated characters, making technological
trickery seem seamless and natural.
A family statement released Wednesday
said Hoskins had died in a hospital the night
before after a bout of pneumonia. He was 71
and had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s
disease in 2012.
Helen Mirren, who starred alongside
Hoskins in “The Long Good Friday,” called
him “a great actor and an even greater man.
Funny, loyal, instinctive, hard-working,
with that inimitable energy that seemed like
a spectacular firework rocket just as it takes
“I personally will miss him very much,
London will miss one of her best and most
loving sons, and Britain will miss a man to
be proud of,” Mirren said.
The 5’6” (1.68 meters tall) Hoskins, who
was built like a bullet, specialized in tough
guys with a soft center, including the ex-con
who chaperones Cathy Tyson’s escort in
Neil Jordan’s 1986 film “Mona Lisa.”
Hoskins was nominated for a best-actor
Academy Award for the role.
“Neil Jordan’s ‘Mona Lisa’ and Bob
Zemeckis’ ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ were
just two of the films that showed Bob
Hoskins’ tremendous range,” said Steven
Spielberg, who produced “Roger Rabbit”
and later directed Hoskins in his Peter Pan
tale “Hook.”
