Construction must be halted on
Hoover Elementary School in
Burlingame, according to a judge’s
final ruling issued Thursday.
San Mateo County Superior
Court Judge Marie Weiner ruled in
favor of the Alliance for
Responsible Neighborhood
Planning that sued the Burlingame
Elementary School District, stat-
ing it needs to prepare a full envi-
ronmental impact report on traffic
impacts on the entire property,
which means all construction
must be stopped until this is done.
Originally, the judge had just
asked to stop construction on the
dropoff zone, but the ruling stated
the entire site needed to be ana-
lyzed before there could be any fur-
ther construction, installation,
development or permits issued.
“The failure to adequately
address traffic and parking envi-
ronmental impacts permeates
more that the mere operation of a
school or how a student dropoff
area is configured,” Weiner
wrote. “Indeed, the demolition of
the annex and the building of a
new and much larger school
building — which is a key com-
ponent of the project — is
designed to take away the vast
majority of the existing parking
lot on the property, and thus
resulting in a parking shortage
and traffic problems.”
The district was very disap-
pointed with the ruling since the
school is for the benefit of the
larger community, said
Superintendent Maggie MacIsaac.
“We have to decide what we need
to do — the board needs to

Journalists in Jordan
fight on live TV talk show
AMMAN, Jordan — Two journalists
in Jordan having a televised debate
about the civil war in neighboring
Syria literally turned — and overturned
— the table on each other during an on-
air brawl.
The program aired on Tuesday on the
“Seven Stars” satellite television chan-
It featured journalists Shaker al-
Johari and Mohammad al-Jayousi talk-
ing about the 3-year-old war pitting
rebels against President Bashar Assad’s
government, a conflict that activists
say has killed more than 150,000 peo-
However, the debate fell apart as al-
Jayousi accused al-Johari of supporting
the Syrian rebels. Al-Johari then
accused al-Jayousi of taking money for
supporting Assad.
The two men, obviously carried away
by the debate, stood up and grabbed the
edge of the studio table they had been
seated at, and tried to fight each other.
Driver is cited for using
dummy in carpool lane
QUINCY, Mass. — Acommuter head-
ing into Boston had a real dummy along
for the ride.
State Trooper John Carnell was work-
ing a paid detail in Quincy on Thursday
morning when he saw a vehicle enter
the carpool lane on Interstate 93 north
with a suspicious-looking passenger.
Carnell pulled over the vehicle and
found that indeed, the driver had
propped up a jacket with a mannequin
head on top in the passenger seat. The
fake head even had a little mustache
drawn on.
Vehicles using the lane must have at
least two occupants.
The driver, whose name was not made
public, has been issued a citation for
operating on an excluded way.
Suspect mistakenly

The Los Angeles Times reported
Wednesday that 34-year-old Johnny
Mata was turned over to deputies at the
San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego
Mata was freed from the Inmate
Reception Center in downtown Los
Angeles last April after a clerk failed to
enter a hold order for the reputed gang
member in a computer.
He’s charged with a 2010 gang-related
shooting that killed a man in Baldwin
Sheriff’s officials said four inmates
were wrongly released last year. The
Times says unlike Mata, the other three
inmates were not considered high-risk
criminals. All three were captured.
Motorcyclist killed
in collision with deer
SAN DIEGO — A motorcyclist has
died after hitting a deer on a southern

U-T San Diego says the 45-year-old
Potrero man was wearing a helmet when
he struck a deer that ran out in front of
him shortly before 5 a.m. Thursday on
State Route 94.
The accident near Tecate killed the
deer and threw the rider from his 2007
Harley Davidson.
He died at the scene. His name hasn’t
been released.

SACRAMENTO — On a second attempt,
California lawmakers advanced a bill
Thursday that would require electronics man-
ufacturers to install a shut-off function in all
smartphones as a way to deter what one sen-
ator called a crime wave of thefts.
The legislation by Democratic Sen. Mark
Leno requires companies to produce smart-
phones with technology that makes them
inoperable if the owner loses possession.
It fell two votes short of passing the 40-
member Senate two weeks ago, but Leno
said amendments since then removed oppo-
sition from Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp.
It now applies to smartphones manufactured
and sold after July 2015 and no longer
includes tablets.
The wireless industry, however, opposes
the measure as unnecessary.
“We have a crime wave sweeping our
state,” Leno, who represents San Francisco,
said in urging support for his bill. He said
two of three robberies in that city now
include the theft of a smartphone, along
with one of four robberies in Oakland.
“These crimes are up at double-digit
rates,” he said. “We’re trying to keep our
constituents safe on the streets.”
It advanced as a San Francisco supervisor
proposed legislation this week that would
require smartphones and other mobile
devices sold in the city to be equipped with
a “kill switch” to render them inoperable if
they’re lost or stolen.
Similar legislation is being considered in
New York, Illinois and Minnesota, and bills
have been introduced in both houses of
Also Thursday, the Minnesota House of
Representatives passed similar legislation
that would require that all new smartphones
and cellular-connected tablet computers sold
in Minnesota after July 2015 have a kill
switch anti-theft function. The Minnesota
Senate passed a slightly different version
last week.
In California, Democratic Sen. Alex
Padilla noted recent reports that some
smartphone owners are endangering them-
selves by using phones’ tracking software
to confront thieves and retrieve their
The bill, SB962, passed the Senate 26-8

Senate approves nonprofit
campaign disclosure bill
SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers
have approved a bill that would force political
nonprofits to reveal their donors. SB27 by
Democratic Sen. Lou Correa of Anaheim
passed the Senate on Thursday after it was
amended to limit disclosure to donations made
after July 1. It now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown.
The bill responds to $15 million of anony-
mous contributions that were funneled
through conservative nonprofits before the
2012 general election. The amended bill
passed 28-7, with four Republicans in sup-
port. An initial version fell one vote short of
the supermajority it needed in March, when
Republicans objected that it would reveal
donors retroactively.
Issa condemns Donnelly
comments on Islamic law
SACRAMENTO — Republican U.S.
Rep. Darrell Issa on Thursday strongly
condemned comments by GOP gubernato-
rial front-runner Tim Donnelly, in which
the state lawmaker has tried to tie his
Indian-American rival to fundamentalist
Islamic law, calling his statements “hate-
ful and ignorant garbage.”
Donnelly, a state assemblyman who is
popular with the tea party, has repeatedly
said this week that Neel Kashkari supported
Shariah banking code when he was a senior
official at the U.S. Treasury Department in
2008. On Facebook, Donnelly posted a link
to a banking seminar hosted by the depart-
ment during which Kashkari, a Hindu, deliv-
ered opening remarks.
“As far as I’m concerned, this type of stu-
pidity disqualifies Tim Donnelly from being
fit to hold any office, anywhere. Donnelly is
no longer a viable option for California vot-
ers,” Issa, who has endorsed Kashkari, said
in a statement.

LOS ANGELES — Silicon Valley
recoils at the government’s cyber data-
gathering done in the name of nation-
al security. It bristles at new potential
Internet rules. It’s fast-paced ethos
doesn’t understand Washington’s grid-
Yet, President Barack Obama
remains a popular political figure in
Silicon Valley, and the wealthy tech
entrepreneurs appear willing to part
with their money to support the
Democratic Party, especially if the
president is making the pitch. Obama
on Thursday was attending two high-
dollar Democratic Party fundraisers
hosted by Silicon Valley executives,
drawing attention to the complicated
relationship between the president and
the high-tech industry.
For Obama, Northern California and
the high tech redoubt around Palo Alto
has been a key part of Obama’s cam-
paign money base. And it is especially
attractive to politicians because it is
continually expanding.
“One of the dynamics that people on
the East Coast and particularly in
Washington, D.C., may not fully
appreciate is that these folks are in a
space that is growing,” said
California-based Democratic consult-
ant Chris Lehane, a former aide to
President Bill Clinton. “That adds an
entire pool of fresh donor blood into
the mix.”
Obama’s message at fundraisers has
focused this year’s midterm election
and on retaining Democratic control of
the Senate, essential to the remaining
two-and-a-half years of his presidency.
Before heading to Silicon Valley
Thursday, Obama warned Democratic
National Committee donors at the La
Jolla home of billionaire and former
Qualcomm Chairman Irwin Jacobs that
even though the economy has
rebounded in the past five years, the
American public remains anxious and
that Democratic voters, in particular,
may just stay home this election.
“The American public is on our
side,” he said. “They’ve just lost faith
that we can make it happen.”
“We’re not going to be able to make
the progress we need, regardless of
how hard I push, regardless of how
many administrative actions I take,
we’re not going to be able to go where
we need to go and can go and should go
unless I have a Congress that is will-
ing to work with me,” he added.
Later, Obama attended a fundraiser
hosted by Anne Wojcicki, a biotech
entrepreneur who founded the genetic
testing firm 23andMe and separated
last year from her husband, Google co-
founder Sergey Brin. The event was
advertised as a Tech Roundtable, with
30 guests and tickets set at $32,400 —
a potential haul of nearly $1 million
for the Democratic National
Obama popular in tech
world, policies less so
“We’re not going to be able to make
the progress we need, regardless of how hard
I push, regardless of how many administrative
actions I take, we’re not going to be able to go
where we need to go and can go and should go
unless I have a Congress that is willing to work with me.”

Sylvia Burwell testifies before a U.S.Senate Health,Education,Labor and Pensions Committee
confirmation hearing on her nomination to be secretary of the Department of Health and
Human Services on Capitol Hill.
By Erica Werner
WASHINGTON — President Barack
Obama’s nominee for health secretary drew
support from Republican senators Thursday
even as they challenged the health law she
would be charged with carrying out.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell defended the
Affordable Care Act, asserting that it has
improved the economy, held down the
growth of health costs, reduced premiums
and expanded coverage.
The law “is making a positive difference
in the lives of our families and our commu-
nities,” Burwell, who now serves as
Obama’s budget director, said in testimony
before the Senate Health, Education, Labor
and Pensions Committee, the first of two
Senate committees that will hold hearings
on her nomination to lead the Department
of Health and Human Services.
Republican senators disagreed. The top
committee Republican, Sen. Lamar
Alexander of Tennessee, warned her that
Republicans hope to retake the Senate in
November and scale back the law in numer-
ous ways.
“Republicans would like to repair the
damage Obamacare has done,” Alexander
But at the same time, Alexander cited
Burwell’s “reputation for competence,” and
she was effusively introduced at the hearing
by another Republican, Sen. John McCain
of Arizona. Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.,
declared he plans to vote in favor of her
nomination, calling her a “tremendous
The exchanges point to a smooth confir-
mation for Burwell, 48, even as her nomi-
nation hearings allow Republicans to focus
renewed election-year attention on the
unpopular health law.

nominee faces GOP questions
By Bradley Klapper and Donna Cassata
WASHINGTON — House Republicans on
Thursday rammed through a measure open-
ing a new investigation of the deadly
assault in Benghazi, Libya, vowing to dig
deeper in a search for truth. Democrats
declared it merely a political ploy to raise
campaign cash and motivate voters.
A bitterly divided House voted 232-186
to establish the panel that Speaker John
Boehner insisted would answer questions
that linger almost 20 months after the Sept.
11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic
mission. Seven Democrats, many facing
tough re-election campaigns, broke ranks
and joined Republicans in supporting the
The panel’s investigation will be the
eighth on Benghazi and will examine the
entirety of the attack that killed U.S.
Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other
Americans. Independent, bipartisan and
GOP-led probes have faulted the State
Department for inadequate security at the
outpost, leading to four demotions. No
attacker has yet been brought to justice.
Republicans say they’re unsatisfied with
explanations so far, and they have leveled a
range of accusations against President
Barack Obama, former Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton and other senior
administration officials. Chief among
them: that the administration misled the
American people about the nature of the
attack during a presidential election cam-
paign and stonewalled congressional
“We will not take any shortcuts to the
truth, accountability or justice,” Boehner
said during House debate.
Democrats remain divided over whether to
boycott the select committee.
House votes to start new

DENVER — Frustrated by the cash-heavy
aspect of its new marijuana industry,
Colorado is trying a long-shot bid to create
the world’s first financial system devoted to
the pot business.
But Colorado’s plan to move the weed
industry away from dank-smelling cash to
easily auditable banking accounts is a Hail
Mary pass that won’t work, industry and
regulatory officials agree.
“It’s definitely creative, but I don’t know
whether it’s a solution or just a statement,”
said Toni Fox, owner of 3D Cannabis Center
in Denver.
Here’s the plan approved by state lawmak-
ers Wednesday — state-licensed pot growers
and sellers would pool their cash into unin-
sured financial cooperatives. The coopera-
tives would then ask the U.S. Federal
Reserve System to let them access so-called
“merchant services,” a broad category that
includes accepting credit cards and being
able to write checks.

Police warn of increase
in telephone scams
Redwood City police are warning citi-
zens to be wary of telephone scams in
which callers claim to represent the
Internal Revenue Service or other law
enforcement agencies.
Police said they have seen an increase in
scams in which the unsuspecting victims
are told that there is a problem with their
tax returns and are instructed to pay an
amount owed immediately under threat of
Other scams include callers claiming to
be law enforcement officials warning vic-
tims that a bench warrant will be issued for
them unless they make a payment over the
phone and lottery scams where callers ask
for money over the phone after claiming
the victim has won a lottery sweepstakes.
Police advise citizens not to wire money
or purchase pre-paid cards for unsolicited
calls on the telephone, noting that the
IRS and law enforcement do not operate in
such a manner.
Similar scams have taken place regular-
ly on the Peninsula including two in South
San Francisco Tuesday. One involved
someone calling and pretending to be
from the IRS and the other said he was
from Pacific Gas and Electric.

water use reduction
In its annual water quality report, Foster
City and the Estero Municipal
Improvement District requested its users
reduce its water use by 10 percent because
of the recent dry winter.
The report also stated that the district’s
water meets or exceeds all primary water
standards set by the U.S. Environmental

South City man robbed
at gunpoint in own garage
Police are on the lookout for a man who
was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night
in his open garage on the 300 block of
Susie Way in South San Francisco.
At approximately 11 p.m., the man was
approached by two men, one who pointed
a gun at him and demanded personal
belongings. The other man removed per-
sonal items from the garage and an undis-
closed amount of cash. They were seen
loading the items into a white pickup
truck waiting nearby with a female driver,
according to police.
One was described as Hispanic, 40-45
years old, with a stocky build, 6 feet 1
inches, with short black hair, brown eyes,
clean shaven, with multiple tattoos on his
right arm, wearing a white T-shirt with a
brown jacket and blue jeans. The other was
white, 40-45 years old, slender, 6 feet,
with short blond hair, blue eyes, clean
shaven and a teardrop tattoo below the
corner of his right eye. He was last seen
wearing a black baseball hat, baggy white
T-shirt and baggy blue jeans. The woman
was described as white and slender. The
truck had an extended cab with a custom

DONETSK, Ukraine — In an obscure gov-
ernment office guarded by a man in a red T-
shirt armed only with a stick, two photo-
copy machines churned out ballots
Thursday for eastern Ukraine’s referendum
on secession, as they have been doing
around the clock for days.
In apparent defiance of a call by Russian
President Vladimir Putin to put off the vote,
insurgents in eastern Ukraine insisted
Thursday they will go ahead with this week-
end’s referendum as planned.
“Putin is seeking a way out of the situa-
tion. We are grateful to him for this,” said
Denis Pushilin, co-chairman of the Donetsk
People’s Republic, as the pro-Russian
rebels call themselves.
“But we are just a bullhorn for the peo-
ple,” he declared. “We just voice what the
people want.”
Ukraine has in recent weeks grown per-
ilously polarized, with the west looking
toward Europe and the east favoring closer
ties with Russia. Thursday’s pronounce-
ment was likely to further inflame tensions
between the interim government in Kiev
that took power amid chaos in February and
the armed insurgents, who have seized
police stations and government buildings
in more than a dozen cities in the east.
Support for the referendum is most pro-
nounced among eastern Ukraine’s proudly
Russian-speaking working class. Rage
against the central government that came to
power after months of nationalist-tinged
protests is blended with despair at Ukraine’s
dire economic straits and corruption.
The occasionally violent protests that
culminated in President Viktor
Yanukovych’s fleeing to Russia were viewed
by many in the east as a coup and a portent
of repression against the region’s majority
Russian speakers.
Ignoring Putin, Ukraine insurgents to hold vote

BAUCHI, Nigeria — Residents of a
Nigerian town attacked by Boko Haram
criticized security forces for failing to
protect them despite warnings that the
Islamic militants were nearby. At least 50
bodies have been recovered, many horri-
bly burned, in the town.
The attack on Gamboru, in remote
northeastern Nigeria near the border with
Cameroon, is part of the Islamic mili-
tants’ campaign of terror that included the
kidnapping of teenaged girls from a
school, 276 of whom remain missing and
believed held by Boko Haram in the vast
Sambisa Forest in northeastern Nigeria.
The death toll from the Monday after-
noon attack in Gamboru was initially
reported by a senator to be as many as
300, but a security official said it is more
likely to be around 100. Some Gamboru
residents said bodies were recovered from
the debris of burned shops around the
town’s main market, which was the focus
of the attack.
The bodies were found after the market
reopened on Wednesday as health workers,
volunteers and traders searched for miss-
ing people, said Gamboru resident Abuwar
He said most of the bodies were burned
beyond recognition. Some of the victims
were traders from Chad and Cameroon, he
“It seems they hid in the shops in order
not (to) be killed while fleeing,” Masta
said Wednesday. “Unfortunately, several
explosives were thrown into the market.”
Masta and other traders said that some
villagers had warned the security forces of
an impending attack after insurgents were
seen camping in the bush near Gamboru.

ACAPULCO, Mexico — A strong earth-
quake shook the southern Pacific coast of
Mexico as well as the capital and several
inland states Thursday, sending frightened
people into unseasonal torrential rains that
were also bearing down on the coast.
The 6.4-magnitude quake in southern
Guerrero state was centered about 9 miles
(15 kilometers) north of Tecpan de Galeana,
according to the U.S. Geological Survey,
and was felt about 171 miles (277 kilome-
ters) miles away in Mexico City, where
office workers streamed into the streets
away from high-rise buildings.
There were no reports of injuries but vary-
ing reports of damage near the epicenter
emerged throughout the day.
Among the damage was the collapse of a
30-yard section of highway bridge that
was already under repair from last fall’s
flooding and a magnitude-7.2 quake in the
same area in April.
Flooding of the detour route from heavy
rain Thursday left the federal highway
between the resort cities of Acapulco and
Zihuatanejo closed.
Guerrero Gov. Angel Aguirre reported
three homes collapsed in Zijuatanejo and 17
more unstable after the temblor. Local offi-
cials reported dozens of simple adobe
homes collapsed near the epicenter, though
no one was injured. Aguirre also reported
mudslides on other major highways, includ-
ing the one connecting Acapulco with
Mexico City.
Civil protection crews in Acapulco found
no problems except scared citizens who
were forced to take refuge in the heavy rain
that was hitting the region.
In Mexico City, elegantly dressed busi-
nesswoman Carmen Lopez was leaving a
downtown office building when the ground
began to shake. She dashed across the street
to a leafy median as light poles swayed vio-
lently above her.

Our deficit is not being cut
I am bewildered by the non sequitur
response of Mr. Aadahl to my April 8
letter. He claims I “equate ACAshort-
comings to the unnecessary wars
started by George W. Bush.” I pointed
out a few of the lies from the current
president, including “If you like your
health insurance, you can keep your
health insurance. Period.” This, in
Mr. Aadahl’s view is an ACAshort-
coming. I think citizens who have
had their health insurance policies
canceled would view this as a pretty
big shortcoming.
Then he claims that I conveniently
forgot that the “ACAdiscrepancies I
refer to were a result of a compromise
President Obama had to make to get
enough Republicans in Congress on
board.” Lying about keeping one’s
policy and/or doctor is not a discrep-
ancy — it is downright fraudulent.
And not one Republican voted for
ACA. But this is a mere discrepancy.
Then, he states that Obama has cut
the deficit in half and the national
debt was mainly piled up by his pred-
ecessor. And asks if I am oblivious to
facts. Try these for facts from the
U.S. Treasury website:
National Debt 9/30/2000: $5.674
trillion; National Debt 9/30/2008:
$10.024 trillion, Increase $4.350
trillion; National Debt 4/14/2014:
$17.541 trillion, Increase $7.517
So Mr. Obama has piled up nearly
twice as much national debt as all of
his predecessors combined in less
than six years in office. How could
this be if deficits are being cut?

Overwhelming consensus
about climate change
Climate change skeptic John
Bloomstine searched and found a
minority view scientist that denies
climate change (“Letter: Climate
change believers and opposing point
of view” in the May 6 edition of the
Daily Journal). This is as it should
be. Science is not monolithic; honest
discourse and disagreement is part of
the scientific process.
The overwhelming consensus in the
scientific community is that climate
change is real and happening now.
Bloomstine put all his eggs into the
basket of Professor S. Fred Singer of
the University of Virginia, who
claims no man-made effects are evi-
I could cite equally prestigious
(more so actually) scientists with an
opposing view, and many more in
number, such as Nobel Prize-winning
climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann,
who disagree.
If a thousand scientists say the
Earth is round and you find one who
says, “No, it’s flat,” it could be flat.
The smart money goes with the thou-
sands who say, “Nope, it’s round.”
The Las Vegas casinos make a ton of
money on folks like John who bet
against the odds. Who am I to deny
them their pigeons — I mean clients.

Letters to the editor
or the owner of a $700,000
home, is paying up to $21
more a year worth a large set
of improvements to the
Midpeninsula Regional Open Space
That is the core of the question
behind Measure AA, officially called
the Access, Preservation and
Restoration of Open Space Lands.
With Measure AA’s passage, the
open space district will tackle 25
projects in its areas that stretch from
the southern end of San Mateo
County, through Santa Clara County
and into Santa Cruz County. It will
provide the district with the ability
to sell bonds every three years total-
ing $300 million to make the
improvements. By selling the bonds
every three years, the district aims to
keep the overall increase in assess-
ment lower than if the bonds were to
be sold at once. The average home
owner pays about $17 per $100,000
in assessed value of their home for
the work the district currently does.
The bond sales will increase that
amount by no more than $3.18 per
$100,000 in assessed value with
some years seeing an increase of $1
per $100,000 in assessed value.
If the district currently collects
money for its work, then why the
need for the increase? That is also at
the heart of the question behind this
measure. It can still engage in these
priority projects, but the timeline
would be significantly longer.
And just what are these priority
projects? They range from protecting
water supply and quality in six pre-
serves such as restoring fish and red-
legged frog habitats at Miramontes
Ridge, improving wildlife habitat in
eight preserves including those for
rare species, steelhead habitat, rare
plants and grasslands at Sierra Azul
and creating recreation and education
access in 11 preserves like Bear
Creek Redwoods where parking and
stables will be improved and there
will be additional facilities for educa-
tional and volunteer programs.
Salmon runs at La Honda Creek will
be improved and redwood trees near
Purisima Creek will be preserved.
Trails will be connected and, at long
last, there will be a way to get from
the Skyline Ridge to the coast.
At one time, the district was at the
center of controversy over its emi-
nent domain practices and agricultur-
al policy. It has been 16 years since
the district has engaged in eminent
domain and it seems to have a new
appreciation of the importance of the
agricultural legacy of this county,
particularly on the coast. This meas-
ure will assist the district in improv-
ing the property it currently holds to
make it more accessible, more
engaging and in keeping with the
philosophy of maintaining our open
space for all to enjoy into the future.
The additional expense on the tax
bill is a real impact and, with inter-
est, this bond will cost more than
$300 million. But is the cost worth
it to provide longtime preservation
and access for future generations?
Yes on Measure AA
What will the audit
of SamTrans reveal?
he San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office
has hired an independent auditor to help its
investigation into the San Mateo County Transit
District after allegations of financial misconduct. The
allegations go back several years and center around
accounting practices.
In a Daily Journal story in September 2013, a two-
year employee with the transit agency claimed she was
defamed, discriminated
against and harassed
after she questioned cer-
tain shipping charges
and accounting prac-
tices. SamTrans hired an
independent outside con-
sultant to investigate
the claims and said they
were found to be without
The transit agency has
been dogged by other
allegations in the past
year and NBC Bay Area’s
investigative team has
made a project out of
following them up. The
investigative team even
had the quintessential
TV news “gotcha”
moment when it showed up at a transit district meeting
to talk about the allegations only to be forcefully
brushed off.
The District Attorney’s Office began its investigation
in August and the hiring of an independent financial
auditor should speed up the process.
In fact, the transit district has yet to supply the
District Attorney’s Office with any material so far,
according to district spokeswoman Jayme Ackemann.
“It is our understanding that they are working with
former employees and reviewing the documentation that
those former employees have provided,” Ackemann
The new auditor, to be paid for by the transit district,
will also be independent of the audit firm that handled
the district’s financial matters in the past, according to
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
“After extensive discussions over a very long period,
the transit district board and transit executives agreed
with our request and that is why my office made the
selection of and retained the auditing firm which will
review the financial records,” Wagstaffe said.
SamTrans officials, though limited in what can be said
because of the pending litigation, deny the allegations
and claim everything has been conducted in the right
We are confident ... that when all the facts are provid-
ed, these stories will be revealed as inaccurate, mislead-
ing and replete with misrepresentations,” Ackemann
Eventually, the audit report will come out and the
District Attorney’s Office will make a determination if
the allegations have merit.
The San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School
District is undergoing a process to determine with
Albion H. Horrall Elementary School should get a new
name as part of a new “branding” effort. Apparently,
some refer to the school as “Horrible” Horrall and there
is sometimes confusion between it and Laurel
Elementary School. Some of the name ideas include
LEAD or Poplar elementary. I have an idea, unless a
school is named after Richard Nixon or say, Leland Yee,
keep the name as it is. It was named after the former
superintendent for a reason, likely his tremendous con-
tributions to the district and schools in this area. If
everything was renamed because of a bad nickname or
confusion over something named similarly, that’s all
we’d spend our time doing. So please, just keep it
AU.S. Supreme Court decision Monday to allow a New
York town council to conduct public prayers has at least
one direct impact. The Redwood City Council has con-
ducted prayers — or an invocation — before its meet-
ings for years. The council does it with different denom-
inations and languages.
Am I the only one who thinks it’s odd that President
Obama decided to make a speech about energy efficiency
at the Mountain View Walmart?

NEW YORK — The stock market
finished mostly lower on Thursday as
investors assessed the latest batch of
company earnings and sold utility
and energy stocks.
Tesla, a maker of electric cars, fell
after reporting a first-quarter loss and
saying it would need to invest more
in its business.
Companies that pay steady divi-
dends and have a long record of prof-
i t abi l i t y, such as utilities, have
surged this year, benefiting from a
shift in sentiment as investors sold
previously high-flying Internet and
small-company stocks. A sell-off in
these stocks could be a troubling
sign for the overall market.
“The market’s still pretty sloppy, ”
said Quincy Krosby, a market strate-
gist at Prudential Financial. “The fear
in the market is that the selling
spreads to the defensive stocks, the
safe havens and that could bring
down the whole market.”
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
fell 2.58 points, or 0.1 percent, to
1, 875. 63. The Dow Jones industrial
average edged up 32.43 points, or
0. 2 percent, to 16, 550. 97. The
Nasdaq composite lost 16.18 points,
or 0.4 percent, to 4,051.50.
Utility companies in the S&P 500
fell 1.2 percent, paring their gains
this year to 12.5 percent. Energy
stocks dropped 1.3 percent.
Stocks had started the day higher as
investors looked over earnings
reports and after some encouraging
news on hiring.
The U.S. government reported that
the number of Americans seeking
unemployment benefits fell 26,000
last week to 319,000, the latest sign
that the job market is slowly improv-
ing. The drop follows two weeks of
increases that reflected mostly tem-
porary layoffs around the Easter holi-
Keurig Green Mountain was among
the big gainers after report earnings.
The maker of specialist coffees
climbed $11.98, or 13 percent, to
$104.19 after its earnings exceeded
analysts’ estimates. Keurig, known
for its single-serve coffee brewing
system, said late Wednesday that its
net income climbed 22 percent in its
fiscal second quarter.
Twenty-First Century Fox was
another winner. The company’s stock
rose $2.10, or 6.5 percent, to $34.22
after it also reported earnings that
surpassed analysts’ expectations.
Fox’s television unit got a boost
from higher advertising revenue dur-
ing the National Football League
playoffs and the Super Bowl.
Tesla was among the day’s losers.
The company, which makes electric
cars, reported a $49.8 million first-
quarter loss late Wednesday and said
that spending on investments would
weigh on earnings later this year.
Tesla now sells only one car, the
Model S, which starts at $70,000,
but it’s working on two other vehi-
cles, an electric crossover SUV called
the Model X and a lower-cost model.
The company’s stock fell $22.76,
or 11.3 percent, to $178.59.
Almost 90 percent of companies in
the S&P 500 have now reported first-
quarter earnings.
Overall earnings are expected to
grow by 3.3 percent in the quarter,
according to data from S&P Capital
IQ. That compares with growth of
almost 8 percent in the fourth quarter
of 2013 and 5.2 percent in the same
period a year ago.
Revenue also grew in the first quar-
ter, rising 3.3 percent versus 1.6 per-
cent growth in the fourth quarter, a
positive sign that companies are
experiencing stronger demand. Some
investors believe that companies are
still relying too much on cost-cut-
ting to generate earnings growth.

WASHINGTON — Airlines tried and
failed to block a federal rule making them
tell passengers up front the full cost of air-
fare, including government taxes and fees.
So they’re trying another route, asking
Congress to do what the Obama administra-
tion and the courts refused to do: roll back
the law.
A bill in Congress would allow airlines
to return to their old way of doing things,
which was to emphasize in ads the base air-
fare — the amount airlines charge passen-
gers to fly — but reveal the full price
including taxes and fees separately. It’s
backed by a bipartisan group of 33 law-
makers led by House Transportation and
Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill
Shuster, R-Pa.
Before the Department of Transportation
put its regulation in place two years ago,
airlines and ticketing services would typi-
cally display the lower base fare in large
type and show taxes and fees in small print.
Consumers shopping online often weren’t
shown taxes and fees unless they scrolled
to the bottom of the web page or clicked
through several pages after selecting a
The bill, supported both by the airline
industry and by its pilot and flight-atten-
dant unions, is moving through the House
at Mach speed. It was introduced in March
and approved by the transportation com-
mittee a month later without a hearing and
by a voice vote, which means there is no
record of who voted for or against it. The
committee’s entire discussion of the meas-
ure lasted 9 minutes.
The bill is “a gift to the airlines,” said
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., a transporta-
tion committee member who said he voted
against it.
“What you’re going to see is $200 for the
airfare, and then you’re going to be
shocked when it turns out to really be
$250,” he said. “It’s misleading to the con-
sumer. It’s just dishonest.”
Airlines say they should be able to able
to advertise their fares the same way hotels,
car rental agencies and other businesses do
— by advertising the price of their service
and adding in taxes and fees before the final

Gap outlook strong
after April sales gains
NEWYORK — Retailer Gap said its
sales climbed in April and it forecast
first-quarter results that were better than
Wall Street had expected.
Gap’s shares rose 4.5 percent to $41
in aftermarket trading.
The San Francisco-based company
said that its sales at stores open at least
a year, a key retail benchmark, rose 9
percent. The company says its Old
Navy chain did particularly well.
Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters
expected a gain of 0.5 percent.
And for the quarter that ended in
April, Gap expects net income of 56 to
57 cents per share on a sales gain of 1
percent, to $3.77 billion. It forecast
that sales at stores open at least a year
fell 1 percent.
That topped Wall Street’s prediction.
Analysts polled by FactSet expected
profit of 54 cents per share on revenue
of $3.69 billion.
The latest results from Gap come
after a tough winter for many retailers,
with severe storms hurting sales.
A late Easter this year also hurt
March sales. But the arrival of warm
weather seems to be warming up shop-
pers’ appetites for spring clothes.
LinkedIn proposes
expansion in hometown
MOUNTAIN VIEW — Professional
networking site LinkedIn is proposing
to add office space in its hometown in
Silicon Valley, a newspaper reported.
The company and a developer have
submitted paperwork to city officials in
Mountain View for multiple office
buildings that could total 2.6 million
square feet and employ up to 13,000
new workers.
“This would be a major increase in
LinkedIn’s presence in Mountain
View,” said Terry Blount, the city’s
planning manager.
Blount estimated the company cur-
rently occupies about 767,000 square
feet in Mountain View.
The proposal comes as LinkedIn has
inked other expansion deals. The com-
pany signed a lease last month for a 26-
story, 450,000-square-foot office tower
in San Francisco. The building in the
city’s South of Market neighborhood
is expected to be completed by 2016.

following McWhirter’s two-run home run in the fifth innings of the Vikings’ 5-4 win over
Hillsdale, denying the Knights a piece of the PAL OceanDivision championship.
Mike Marshall, an amateur boxer out of San Mateo’s Westside Boxing Club, throws an
overhand right during a sparring session with Xavier Vigney. Marshall will participate in the
GoldenGloves national tournament in Las Vegas next week.
By Nathan Mollat
Mike Marshall was sparring with Xavier
Vigney Wednesday at San Mateo’s Westside
Boxing Club Wednesday. Vigney is a profes-
sional super heavyweight fighter out of
Antioch who is 2-0 and a couple inches taller
and 40 pounds heavier.
It was evident at times as Vigney hammered
Marshall around the ring at times. But
Marshall is no slouch in the ring. He gave as
good as he got and, after climbing out of the
ring at the end of his workout, Marshall was
sporting a souvenir from the bigger, heavier
Vigney — a small mouse under his right eye.
But Marshall was smiling. Marshall is smil-
ing a lot these days. Who in their right mind
would be smiling after mixing it up with an
opponent who is not necessarily in his weight
class? Marshall was smiling because the
workout was exactly what he needs as he pre-
pares to fight for the Golden Gloves national
title in Las Vegas next week.
Normally a heavyweight, Marshall’s trainer
Pat Ragan, who owns and
operates Westside Boxing
Club, believes it is easier
for Marshall to move up a
weight class instead of try-
ing to cut weight to get
down to the heavyweight
Marshall, a 6-1 right-
handed technician with a
38-6 amateur record, walks
around at about 210 pounds and mostly keeps
it there. To fight in the heavyweight class, he
would have to lose about 10 pounds. Fighting
at super heavyweight, however, he will be fac-
ing opponents who can outweigh him by 20,
30, 40 and even 50 pounds.
No sweat says Marshall.
“The thing that is going to hurt me is hav-
ing a smaller frame. The thing that is going to
help me is having a smaller frame,” Marshall
said. “I go into this (Golden Gloves national
tournament) with experience with big guys.

The Mills baseball team has struggled all
season long, reaching its nadir Tuesday
when the Vikings were no-hit by Hillsdale’s
Ro Mahanty.
“We’ve had four hits in the last three
games,” said Mills manager Tony Adornetto
before the game.
The Vikings, however, had the last laugh
— and ultimate revenge — as they stunned
the Knights 5-4 Thursday, costing them a
piece of the Peninsula Athletic League
Ocean Division title on the final day of the
regular season.
“It’s very satisfying,” said Mills catcher
Mike McWhirter, who drove in three runs
and drilled a two-run homer in the top of the
fifth inning to tie the score at three and then
scored the go-ahead run on Roberto
Zucchiatti’s grounder to shortstop, beating
the throw to the plate.
Mills’ win, coupled with a 1-0 win by
Capuchino over Aragon, and Sequoia’s 3-0
win over Woodside, makes Cap and Sequoia
co-champions of the Ocean Division. With
the loss, Hillsdale falls into second place.
McWhirter said the Vikings were aware
Hillsdale was playing for a division title
“We heard about that. We were just trying
to play hard,” McWhirter said. “To come out
and get a win feels good.”
Making the win even more satisfying is
the fact Mills’ Zucchiatti was making his
first start of the season. He spent most of
the season at shortstop and served as the
Vikings’ closer.
With only six wins on the season coming
into Thursday’s game — and only three in
Ocean Division play — Zucchiatti hasn’t
had a lot of opportunities to close out
Thursday, however, he was dealing. He
pitched a complete game, allowing four runs
on six hits, striking out four and walking
three — one intentionally.
“He’s thrown 10 to 15 innings (this sea-
son). He had a good arm, but hasn’t really

The stakes were high as Carlmont headed
into Half Moon Bay Thursday.
A Carlmont win would have clinched the
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division title
outright for the Scots. AHalf Moon Bay win
meant the Cougars would remain in the dri-
ver’s seat en route to clinching a fifth-place
finish to ensure a Central Coast Section play-
off berth.
Enter Half Moon Bay’s Mike Rupert. The
right hander delivered the most outstanding
pitching performance of his varsity career
under the most crucial circumstances, firing a
complete-game victory as the Cougars topped
the Scots 5-2.
In his first start since March 4, Rupert took
a no-hitter into the fifth inning. He persevered
through one rough inning to go the distance as
the senior earned the first win of his varsity
Since injuries knocked Rupert out of the
Cougars’ starting rotation at the beginning of
the season, he returned to the mound in relief
last week, proving solid through a pair of two-
inning appearances against Cupertino and
“You could tell [Rupert] was getting it
back,” Half Moon Bay manager Steve
Terraszas said. “Today we figured, let’s let him
start today on senior day. We’ll save our two
lefties for (the last two regular-season games
against) Menlo and Burlingame, and if he ends
up doing well for us, that’s a bonus. And he
ended up having the game of his career.”
The Half Moon Bay offense gave Rupert all
the support he would need by scoring in each
of the first four innings. Fueled by two-hit per-
formances by Phillip Anderson, Chet Silveria
and Kyle Harwood, the Cougars touched
Carlmont starting pitcher Joe Pratt for one in
the first, one in the second and two more in the
third before adding an insurance run in the
fourth against Scots reliever Ryan Giberton.
In the first, Half Moon Bay leadoff hitter
Gabe Bauer set the stage by finessing a nine-
pitch at-bat for a leadoff walk. Then, with two
outs, Silveria scorched a double up the gap in
left-center to score Bauer, giving the Cougars
a 1-0 lead.

Capuchino 1, Aragon 0, 9 innings
The Mustangs pushed an unearned run
across in the bottom of the ninth inning to
complete the sweep of the Dons and secure a
piece of the Peninsula Athletic League
Ocean Division championship.
“It was crazy,” said Capuchino manager
Matt Wilson.
Capuchino (10-4 PAL Ocean, 20-7 over-
all) will share the division title with
Sequoia, which beat Woodside 3-0.
Capuchino walked off with the win when
with two outs in the bottom of the ninth,
Anthony Orcholski drilled a double.
Antonio Martinucci was hit by a pitch to
bring up sophomore Dylan Arsenault, who
was the hero for the Mustangs in Tuesday’s
7-6 win over the Dons.
Playing in just his third game, Arsenault,
facing a full count, hit a slow chopper to
shortstop. The throw was hurried to first and
got by the Aragon first baseman, enabling
Orcholski to score from second with the
winning run.
“A3-2 count, the runner were on the move
and he just put the ball in play and we got
[the winning run],” Wilson said.
Rory McDaid was nails for the Mustangs
on the mound. Despite taking a no-decision
he kept his team in the game, pitching
eight innings of seven-hit ball.
Martinucci ended up with win, pitching
the final inning for the Mustangs.

Terra Nova (7-4 PAL Bay, 14-10 overall)
scored twice in the first inning and added an

The Panthers picked up their third PAL

shutout of the Cherokees Thursday.
The game was scoreless for the first two
innings before Burlingame (3-9 PALBay, 7-
16 overall) erupted for four runs in the top of
the third. The big hit was bases-loaded dou-
ble off the bat of Kat Marcan. Amelia Milne
drove in the other two runs for the Panthers.
Sara Slavsky earned the win in the pitch-
er’s circle, working five innings, allowing
just two hits. Raine Armanino pitched the
final two innings, allowing just one hit.

The Bears scored early and often as they
routed the Warriors Thursday.
M-A(6-5 PAL Ocean, 16-9 overall) scored
four runs in the first, one in the second, four
more in the third, two in the fifth, one in the

ALAMEDA — Oakland Raiders coach
Dennis Allen knows firsthand how much
impact a rookie pass rusher can have on a
Allen has set the bar high for fifth overall
pick Khalil Mack, hoping he can do for the
Raiders what Von Miller did in Denver three
years ago when Allen was coordinator.
“The thing that really was attractive about
Khalil Mack was the fact that he understands
how to rush the passer and he understands
how to rush the passer with power,” Allen
said. “I see a lot of similarities between he
and Von Miller. ”
The Raiders can only hope Mack turns out
to be as productive as Miller, who had 30
sacks and 54 quarterback hurries in his first
two seasons.
Mack went from mostly an unknown
linebacker toiling in the Mid-American
Conference to a surefire top 10 pick with
a stellar senior season in which he
recorded 10 1/2 sacks and put together a
personal highlight reel in one game
against Ohio State.
He had nine tackles, 2
1/2 sacks and an inter-
ception return for a
touchdown in a loss to
the Buckeyes that showed
he could dominate top-
flight talent as well as he
dominated his confer-
“The guy has the size,
he has the length, he’s got speed,” Raiders
general manager Reggie McKenzie said.
“He’s a playmaker. We’ll find a way to put
him on the field and get some production out
of him. That Ohio State game was just the
tip of the iceberg.”
The Raiders targeted Mack early in the
draft process and were ecstatic when he was
still on the board at fifth overall, leading to
no debate in the draft room about which
player to select or whether to trade down.
Mack will fit in immediately as a starter at
linebacker and offers flexibility as a pass
rusher who is adept at blitzing as well as lin-
ing up as an end.
He will team with free-agent acquisitions
Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley and Antonio
Smith on an overhauled defensive front that
the Raiders hope will help improve a
defense that allowed the second-most
points per game (28.3) in franchise history.
“He’s going to obviously have a big role
in what we’re going to do and he’ll be a guy
that we’re going to use to send after the quar-
terback in a variety of different ways,” Allen
Mack won the Jack Lambert Award and fin-
ished second to Alabama’s C.J. Mosley in
the Butkus Award voting — both honoring
the nation’s top linebackers. He set a con-
ference record with 16 career forced fumbles.
His 75 career tackles for a loss were the
most at the NCAAlevel since 2000.
At 6-foot-2 and 251 pounds, Mack is tout-
ed to have the speed, strength and versatili-
ty to play any linebacker position. At the
NFL combine in February, Mack topped
linebacker prospects in four of six cate-
gories: the 40-yard dash (4.65 seconds), 20-
yard shuttle (4.18 seconds), vertical jump
(40 inches) and broad jump (128 inches).
Mack said he believed he was the best
defensive player in the draft.
“I think that I am, but even then I’m at the
point right now where I’m tired of talking
and I want to go out and start proving a lit-
tle bit of this stuff everybody’s been talking
about,” he said. “I can’t wait. I cannot wait.”
McKenzie has been unable to draft a star
in two years at the helm in Oakland and is
under severe pressure to bring in impact
players as part of a rebuilding effort after the
team posted back-to-back four-win seasons
in his first two years.
McKenzie spent much of the offseason
upgrading the roster with veteran free agent
signings and a trade for quarterback Matt
Schaub. But with most of those additions at
least 29 years old and likely on the down-
side of their careers, Mack is expected to be
one of the major building blocks in ending
a 10-year playoff drought.
Oakland also has its own picks high in
rounds two, three and four and three sev-
enth-round picks. The Raiders traded this
year’s fifth-round choice for quarterback
Matt Flynn, who was released last season
after being unable to beat Terrelle Pryor out
for the starting job. The sixth-rounder went
to Houston in March in the deal for Schaub.
Raiders take Mack with fifth pick in draft

SANTA CLARA — The San Francisco
49ers selected defensive back Jimmie Ward
from Northern Illinois with the 30th pick in
the NFL draft Thursday night.
General manager Trent Baalke and coach
Jim Harbaugh might move Ward from safety
to cornerback to fill a need on the defense
after San Francisco released Carlos Rogers
and then saw both Rogers and Tarell Brown
join the Oakland Raiders across the bay.
Ward could become the team’s third corner-
back in nickel formations.
The 5-foot-10, 193-pound Ward started all
14 games at strong safety last season, lead-
ing his team with 95 tackles — 62 solo —
with a 10-yard sack and 10 pass deflections.
While starting 39 of 55 games for his
career, 12 of those came at left cornerback,
so he does have experience playing that
Tramaine Brock is
returning for the Niners
after receiving a four-year
contract extension in
November that takes him
through 2017.
If healthy, cornerback
Chris Culliver will likely
play opposite Brock. He
is working back after
missing the 2013 season
because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament
in his left knee sustained during training
Culliver pleaded not guilty last month to
misdemeanor hit-and-run charges and felony
possession of brass knuckles from a March
28 arrest in which San Jose police say he
struck a bicyclist, then rammed a witness’
vehicle that was blocking him from leaving
until officers arrived.
Baalke certainly hopes Ward can make an
immediate impact during the highly antici-
pated first season at new Levi’s Stadium next
door to team headquarters. That’s been the
case with first-round picks in recent seasons
since Baalke took over lead draft duties. In
2010, offensive linemen Anthony Davis
and Mike Iupati started every game, and
2013 rookie safety Eric Reid immediately
became a key defender.
Ward is the first of San Francisco’s 11
selections in the draft — and two of the
49ers’ biggest needs in this draft were cor-
nerbacks and linebackers.
All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman is
recovering from a serious left knee injury
suffered in the NFC championship game

ing specialist Aldon Smith could face an

room leader Antoine Bethea.
49ers shore up defensive backfield
By Barry Wilner
NEW YORK — For nearly three years,
Jadeveon Clowney couldn’t wait to get to the
NFL, and the league was just as eager to add the
player some called the best defensive prospect
in a decade.
No surprise: Clowney is the Texans’ man.
But Thursday’s first pick of the 2014 NFL
draft didn’t come without some intrigue about
how it would all turn out. There had been criti-
cism of Clowney’s work ethic last season and
questions about whether the Texans would hold
or trade the No. 1 slot.
“I just been proving a lot of people wrong
throughout my life,” Clowney said. “Growing
up, I grew up hard. I always said I’m going to
do something great. Hopefully, I’m going to
be a Hall of Famer one day.”
Houston will take that.
This draft’s other big name, Texas A&M
quarterback Johnny Manziel, sat with a sullen
look on his face until Cleveland made its third
trade of the round and grabbed the 2012
Heisman Trophy winner at No. 22. To rousing
cheers and chants of “Johnny, Johnny, ”
Manziel smiled widely as he walked onto the
Radio City Music Hall stage.
Manziel’s wait added plenty of intrigue near-
ly three hours after the Texans took their time
selecting Clowney. Rarely does a team not
reveal the top overall choice until it is
announced, and there was wide speculation the
Texans had soured on the defensive end, whose
junior season at South Carolina was accompa-
nied by criticism he played it safe to stay
healthy for the pros.
After Commissioner Roger Goodell
announced the pick, fans filling Radio City
Music Hall to capacity applauded Clowney as
he held up his index finger, his eyes moist, a
relieved look on his face. Just like the 30
prospects on hand, the fans were extra eager to
see who would wind up where after the draft was
pushed back from late April because the theater
was unavailable.
“It’s been a long time. It just kicked in at the
end there, man, I’ve been drafted,” he said.

and last.
“They played a good game,” said Hillsdale manager
James Madison of Mills. “It’s baseball. (Anything can
happen on) any given day. ”
The Vikings wasted little time in making sure Tuesday’s
effort did not carry over to Thursday, getting a first-inning
double off the bat of Jordan Ganim. He would come around
to score on McWhirter’s bloop single to shallow left field
to put Mills up 1-0.
Zucchiatti shut down the Knights through the first three
innings, throwing just 31 pitches and allowing three hits.
“He was hitting his spots really well,” said McWhirter,
Mills’ catcher.
The Knights finally got to Zucchiatti in the fourth, scor-
ing three times. Conner Wallace led off the inning with a
walk and moved to second when Chandler Viera dumped a
single into shallow left field. Both runners moved up on
Brett Wetteland’s sacrifice bunt and Taran Poss drove them
both in with a single to left.
Poss moved to second on a wild pitch and went to second
on a groundout before scoring when David Badet reached
on a error to give Hillsdale a 3-1 lead.
The feeling was that would be enough, but the Vikings
refused to quit. The Vikings came back to tie the score at 3
on McWhirter’s two-run blast in the top of the fifth.
Derrick Wong walked to lead off the inning. Following a
flyout, Mills’ No. 3 hitter, Kyle Vallans, hit a towering
drive to right field that died in the right fielder’s glove as he
crashed back-first into the fence for the second out.
McWhirter came up and hit what appeared to be a routine
fly to left. But the ball kept carrying and wound up over the
fence to tie the game.
“I had no idea (it would go out). I thought it was a fly ball
to left,” McWhirter said. “I think it was a little spark (for
the team).”
Mills took a 4-3 lead in the top of the sixth when
Zucchiatti walked and later scored when No. 9 hitter Gavin
Wong drew a bases-loaded walk.
But Hillsdale came back to tie the score in the bottom of
the frame. Pinch hitter Adam Schembri was hit by a pitch
and Badet singled. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch
and Schembri would score on the second wild pitch of the
inning to tie the game at 4.
Back came the Vikings in the top of the seventh.
McWhirter hit a slow roller to shortstop and reached when
the throw to first sailed wide for an error. McWhirter moved
to second on a wild pitch and took third on Daniel Walsh’s
sacrifice bunt.
With the Hillsdale infield drawn in to cut off the go-ahead
run at the plate, Zucchiatti hit exactly what the Knights
were looking for — a grounder to short. McWhirter broke
for the plate on contact and slid between the legs of
Hillsdale catcher Poss, just beating the throw and putting
the Knights ahead 5-4.
“In a situation like that, you have to take a chance,”
McWhirter said. “Usually I’m really aggressive on the
Zucchiatti then took care of the rest — but there was one
heart-stopping moment. Hillsdale Andrew Yarak led off the
inning and hit a long, deep drive to the right-center field
gap and it looked for all intents and purposes that he would
get at least extra bases, if not a home run.
But Mills’ right fielder Ganim came streaking over and,
running parallel just steps from the fence, made a running
catch for the first out of the inning. Zucchiatti then got a
strikeout. After Viera extended the inning with a walk,
Zucchiatti induced a grounder to Gavin Wong at second,
who threw to first to end the game.
“I told them the last three weeks, ‘We’re playing for
pride,’” Adornetto said. “That was our role the last three
weeks, to play spoiler. ”

LOS ANGELES — Pinch-hitter Hector
Sanchez had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the
10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants
beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Thursday
night in the opener of a four-game series.
Brandon Belt added an RBI single for the
Giants, who tied the score at 1 when
Brandon Hicks homered off Josh Beckett in
the seventh.
J.P. Howell (1-3) issued a one-out walk in
the 11th to Angel Pagan, who advanced on a
wild pitch by Jamey Wright before the
right-hander walked Hunter Pence and
Buster Posey. Sanchez, who came in 1 for
10 as a pinch-hitter with seven strikeouts,
flied out to the warning track in right field to
drive in Pagan.
Belt followed with a run-scoring single to
make it 3-1.
San Francisco downs Dodgers in 10 innings
Kaymer ties course record with a 63 at Sawgrass,
leads Players Championship after one round
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Martin Kaymer stopped
thinking, started swinging and played his way into the
record book Thursday in The Players Championship.
Kaymer missed only two fairways. He putted for birdie on
all but one hole. And the former PGA champion finished
with four straight birdies to become only the fourth player
to shoot 9-under 63 on the Stadium Course at the TPC
Sawgrass, giving him a two-shot lead over Russell Henley.
Kaymer took advantage of a perfect day for scoring —
warm weather, hardly any wind and soft greens.
There were 28 rounds in the 60s, which made the score by
Adam Scott look even worse. With another chance — his
best one yet — to get to No. 1 in the world for the first time,
Scott finished with a pair of double bogeys from shots in
the water and signed for a 77. It was his highest opening
round at The Players since his first trip in 2002.
Kaymer was flawless, hitting whatever shot he felt he
needed. His final blow was a hybrid that ran through the
ninth green and into a bunker, leaving a simple up-and-
down for birdie. He had a 29 on the back, the first player in
the 32-year history at Sawgrass to break 30 on either nine.

to a lineup that already has 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the
Year J.J. Watt. His diligence had been questioned after he
slipped from 13 sacks to just three in 2013. Critics said he was
protecting himself from injury in his junior year before declar-
ing early for the draft.
He is the first defensive player taken first overall since
Houston selected another end, Mario Williams, in 2006.
Williams now is with Buffalo. Houston also made the top pick
in its first season, 2002, taking quarterback David Carr. He
never lived up to that billing; the Texans hope Clowney has
more of an impact.
Tackle Greg Robinson, whose blocking helped high-pow-
ered Auburn make the national championship game last season,
went second to St. Louis. The Rams owned the pick as the final
payment for a 2012 trade with Washington that allowed the
Redskins to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III.
St. Louis is concerned about the health of starting left tackle
Jake Long, who is coming off knee surgery.
The first quarterback to go went to Jacksonville in the
third slot, but it wasn’t Johnny Football. Blake Bortles of
Central Florida, whose stock shot up last season and in
subsequent workouts. At 6-5, 232, Bortles drew compar-
isons to Ben Roethlisberger because of his combination of
size and mobility.
Jacksonville missed the last time it took a QB in the first
round, Blaine Gabbert in 2011. The Jaguars gave up on the
inconsistent Gabbert, who struggled to read defenses and was
benched for journeyman Chad Henne. Gabbert is now a backup
in San Francisco.
“He’s a down-to-earth guy, a self-made guy, a blue-collar guy
and he wants to be the best he can be,” said Jaguars general man-
ager Dave Caldwell, who added a word of caution: “He just needs
a little bit of time.”
Seeing a chance to grab playmaking receiver Sammy
Watkins of Clemson, Buffalo swapped spots with Cleveland,
also sending a first- and fourth-round selection next year to
move up from ninth to fourth.
“Dynamic playmaker, and that’s what this game is all about,”
Bills GM Doug Whaley said of Watkins. “He’s automatically
going to make our quarterback (EJ Manuel) better.”
Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews, the son of Hall of Fame
offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, went to Atlanta with the
sixth overall pick. The Falcons leaked so badly on the offen-
sive line in 2013 as they plummeted from NFC South champi-
on to 4-12 that Matt Ryan was sacked 44 times.
Another Aggies star was chosen next, receiver Mike Evans to
Tampa Bay. The 6-4, 231-pound Evans is durable, versatile —
and quite emotional. He also couldn’t hold back the tears when
Goodell called his name.
The crowd thought Manziel might go eighth when Cleveland
traded up one spot to get Minnesota’s pick. So when the
Browns took cornerback Justin Gilbert of Oklahoma State,
there was a loud groan from the fans. Gilbert smiled wryly as he
shook Goodell’s hand.
Minnesota grabbed UCLAlinebacker Anthony Barr, Detroit
selected North Carolina’s Eric Ebron, by far the best tight end in
this crop, and Tennessee filled a need on the offensive line with
Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan.
Finally, a local team was on the clock and the audience
approved lustily when the Giants chose LSU receiver Odell
Beckham Jr.
Beckham was followed by Pitt DTAaron Donald to St. Louis,
Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller to Chicago, Ohio State LB Ryan
Shazier to Ohio State, Notre Dame G Zack Martin to Dallas,
Alabama LB C.J. Mosley to Baltimore and, as fans chanted “J-
E-T-S,” Louisville safety Calvin Pryor is New York-bound.

In the second, Harwood shot a leadoff double up the right-
center gap. With two outs, Harwood alertly stole third and
soon scored when Sergio Gutierrez blooped an RBI single to
center, giving Half Moon Bay a 2-0 lead.
In the third, Anderson led off with a single. The Scots had a
chance to turn a double play when Brett Berghammer followed
with a sharp grounder to second. But a slight bobble by the
Carlmont second baseman allowed Berghammer enough time
to beat out the back end. The Cougars made the Scots pay, as
Berghammer stole second then moved to third on an infield
single by Silveria. Rupert then helped his own cause with an
RBI single to score Berghammer. Harwood followed with an
RBI single to plate Silveria, giving the Cougars a 4-0 lead.
Facing Giberton in the fourth, Sergio Gutierrez drew a one-
out walk. Gutierrez stole second and took third on the play on
a throwing error by Carlmont catcher Connor Loucks. Then
Anderson shot an RBI single to center to score Gutierrez,
staking Half Moon Bay to a 5-0 lead, all before Carlmont
even tabbed its first hit.
The Scots got on the board the following inning. Pinch
hitter Mike McGill notched the first Scots hit on the after-
noon to start the fifth. Courtesy runner Julian Billot moved to
third on an errant pickoff throw by Rupert. Nick Thompson
drove home Billot with a single to center. Aaron Pleschner
followed with a one-out single. Then Kyle Barret put a charge
into a high changeup for a ground-rule double to left, scoring
But Rupert buckled down, striking out back-to-back
Scots batters to retire the side. Rupert totaled six strikeouts
on the day.
“We obviously thought we could [come back],” Barret said.
“We thought we could get the runs home. Their pitcher threw
a pretty good game. He was getting his off-speed over and we
were having trouble getting guys on and getting those clutch
With Thursday’s win, Half Moon Bay (5-5 in PAL Bay
Division, 12-11 overall) is now one win away from clinching
its first CCS berth since 2011. The Cougars have two games
remaining on their regular-season schedule:at Menlo Friday
and a rain-makeup game at Burlingame Saturday.
In closing out the regular season with a loss, Carlmont (8-
4, 15-10-1) is ensured of at least a co-championship with
Terra Nova. Currently a half game back of Carlmont in the
Bay Division standings, the Tigers wrap up their season
Friday night at Burlingame.
“We’re a champion no matter which way you look at it,”
Carlmont manager Rich Vallero said. “It puts [Terra Nova’s]
own fate in their own hands. We’re already done. So, the
worst we can be is a champion.”

U.S., Canada women finish friendly in a tie
WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Sydney Leroux scored in the 78th
minute to help the U.S. women’s soccer team tie Canada 1-1 on
Thursday night, extending the Americans’ unbeaten streak
against the Canadians to 30 games.
Leroux kicked Canadian Rebecca Quinn’s errant crossing
header under goalkeeper Erin McLeod in front of 28,255 fans at
Investors Group Field, one of six venues for the 2015 FIFA
Women’s World Cup.
Leroux leads the U.S. with six goals this year and has 30
overall for the national team, 20-0-5 against Canada since a
loss in the 2001 Algarve Cup. Born in Vancouver, British
Columbia, Leroux has scored in three straight games against
“She loves big moments and she’s come through and she’s
been fantastic,” U.S. interim coach Jill Ellis said about Leroux.
Kadeisha Buchanan scored for Canada in the 35th minute.
The 18-year-old Buchanan fought off U.S. forward Abby
Wambach and defender Ali Krieger, heading the ball into the
ground toward the left side of the frame for her first interna-
tional goal.
“The future is bright,” Canadian teammate Desiree Scott said.
“Kadeisha Buchanan, 18 years old, going toe-to-toe with some
of the best strikers in the world and she scores a goal tonight.
Unbelievable performance.”
Buchanan played physically against Wambach and the other
U.S. forwards.

“I’ve never lost at super heavyweight.”
Marshall, 31, a Foster City native and
2001 graduate of San Mateo High School,
moved up to the super heavyweight ranks
for this latest Golden Gloves go-around. A
four-time Golden Gloves champion at vari-
ous levels, this will be Marshall’s first foray
into the national tournament.
Marshall captured the San Francisco
Golden Gloves tournament to earn a spot in
the regionals. He won that and then won the
California title to punch his ticket to Las
“He’s spent a long time in development,
but he’s definitely ready for this step and
ready to take it to the next level,” Ragan
said. “I have him at a very high level right
now. Is he going to win this thing? I don’t
know. We know he can take a punch and his
defense is pretty tight right now. I feel if the
draw comes out good and he can navigate
through a couple wins, that could spring-
board him.”
A tough road ahead
Unlike professionals who are given
weeks, if not months, to prepare for one
opponent, amateurs boxing in the Golden
Gloves national tournament are like college
basketball teams in the NCAA tournament:
single-elimination with a survive-and-
advance mentality. One loss and Marshall is
And depending on the number of fighters
in his weight class and if Marshall keeps
winning, there is a chance he could fight
five times in as many days. And looming
large is two-time defending national Golden
Gloves champion Cam Awesome — a name
Ragan has, indeed, verified.
“He’s t he t op guy i n t he nat i on, ”
Ragan said of Awesome. “He’s, l i ke,
way, way above (the rest of the class).
This guy just got back from Russia where
he just beat the top Cuban, the top
Ukrainian and the top Russian.
“I’ve seen [Awesome] fight at nationals. I
know who he is — left-hander, tall, lanky
guy. But that’s [the type of guys] we’ve
been sparring against.”
Boxing changed his life
Marshall is a late devotee to the boxing
game, but it appears to have turned his life
around. A self-described “burnout” in high
school, Marshall didn’t like school, didn’t
appreciate the structure and discipline. And
while he had been involved in martial arts
from the age of about 10, he never really
took advantage of the life skills they can
offer practitioners.
“I had a lot of anger issues when I was a
kid,” Marshall said.
After drifting away from martial arts,
Marshall decided to give boxing a shot.
After a short time at another gym, he wan-
dered into Ragan’s Westside Boxing Club
and found a home.
Not only a home, but a connection with
Ragan. Seven years after taking up the
sport, Marshall’s life has been transformed.
A personal trainer as well as an instructor
for Westside Boxing Club’s boxing classes,
Marshall credits boxing for helping him
find focus in his life.
“I think boxing has helped me with
everything. It helped me with goal orienta-
tion. I didn’t know how to be successful
(before boxing),” Marshall said. “I like the
training. I like the regiment. I like the time
(spent in the gym).
“Now, I’m on the Dean’s List (at the
College of San Mateo). I want to do it (go to
school) now. Now I’m older. Learning is
It’s that kind of intelligence which helps
Marshall in ring. Ragan said their connec-
tion is so good because Marshall is smart
enough to implement what Ragan is telling
him. Both said they are constantly talking
to each other in the ring — even as the fight
is going on.
“He’s a very cerebral boxer. He has a high
boxing IQ,” Ragan said. “Me and Mike have
been together for seven years. We work real-
ly well together. We work at a high level of
breaking down opponents. Mike is intelli-
gent enough to follow along with my phi-
losophy. ”
Added Marshall: “I really feel like I’m in
the best shape of my life, physically and
boxing IQ-wise.”
Pro aspirations
While the stakes are pretty high going
into the Golden Gloves national tourna-
ment, it’s only the end of the first chapter of
Marshall’s boxing life. Following this
tournament, Marshall intends to turn pro-
fessional. A good showing in Las Vegas
could definitely help his pro future. A
Golden Gloves national championship
would definitely open the eyes of profes-
sional promoters.
“If he would win this tournament, it would
open doors (at the professional level),”
Ragan said.
But Marshall isn’t thinking about his
future. He’s more concerned about his pres-
ent and is champing at the bit to get going.
“I’m excited. I’m so ready. I love box-
ing,” Marshall said. “I’m tired of talking
about it.”

Mike Marshall has trained against the likes of Xavier Vigney, who is a much bigger fighter, to
prepare for the super heavyweight division of the Golden Gloves national tournament.

An international film crew in recent weeks has
been re-enacting this and other historic scenes in
the streets of Havana for “Papa,” a biopic about the
budding friendship between Hemingway and the

Years in the making, producers say it is the first full-

be shot in the country since the 1959 revolution.
Due to decades of ill will between the two countries and
Washington’s 52-year-long embargo, other movies ostensibly
set here, such as “The Godfather Part II” and 1990’s
“Havana,” were filmed in stand-in locations like the
Dominican Republic.
“It was an absolute passion to actually make it in Cuba
where everything that is in the script happened, where the
finca (farm) is where (Hemingway) lived, where his boat was,
all the spots from the Morro castle to Cojimar where he
fished,” director Bob Yari said. “It’s all here, so trying to
duplicate it somewhere else was not very appealing.”
Shooting began in March and wrapped over the
weekend on the joint Canadian-Cuban-
American production, with the island’s gov-
ernmental film institute known as ICAIC
providing location support, period cos-
tumes and local actors.
“Papa” came to Cuba under a U.S.
Treasury Department license
exempting it from most embargo
restrictions. The film’s makers
said there was a cap on how
much they could spend, but
would not say how much or

African-American Shakespeare Company
closes its 19th season with Much Ado About
Nothing, William Shakespeare’s glorious
comedy of love, updated to a just after World
War II setting and punctuated by the music of
the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald. Two hours
and 15-minutes with one intermission.
Directed by L. Peter Callender. Through May
AN ASIDE. Director L. Peter Callender
said: “The story focuses on two pairs of
lovers, the more mature and combative
Beatrice and Benedick, and the younger, inno-
cent Claudio and Hero, each couple having a
different take on romance. Soldiers returning
from war, false accusations, faked death, ram-
pant eavesdropping and two weddings provide
for a rich plot of twists and turns. Look for a
fun, emotional, heart-gripping ride!”
Theatre, located on the first floor of the
African-American Art and Culture Complex,
762 Fulton St. (at Webster Street), San
Francisco, holds approximately 210 seats

American Shakespeare Company was intro-
duced in 1994 to open the realm of classic
theater to a diverse audience, and provide an
opportunity and place for actors of color to
hone their skills and talent in mastering
some of the world’s greatest classical roles.
The company produces plays from the clas-
sical theater canon, including the works of
William Shakespeare, as well as classic and
contemporary works from American and
international playwrights, that are lively,
entertaining and relevant. The company was
founded by Sherri Young, currently the
group’s Executive Director. The company’s
Artistic Director is noted actor and director
L. Peter Callender. On May 5, 2014, the San
Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle
honored the African-American Shakespeare
Company with The Paine Knickerbocker
Award, presented annually to an organiza-
tion that has made a continuing contribution
to Bay Area theater. The award, named for the
former theater critic of The San Francisco
Chronicle, was made at the Critics Circle’s
38th Annual Awards ceremony.

Barry Was a Lady. In this zany musical come-
dy, a nightclub washroom attendant quits his
job when he wins the Irish Sweepstakes.
While plotting to win the heart of a nightclub
star, he inadvertently imbibes knock-out
drops meant for his rival and “awakens” to
find himself in 18th century France ensconced
on the throne as King Louis XV. Du Barry Was
a Lady features the Cole Porter classics

focused instructor who, as they learn to their
increasing distress, has seen better days.

Processed and convenience foods
and shortcut cooking methods have
become so entrenched in our culinary
culture, it’s easy to forget just how
much we have forgotten about real
But cooking instructor Darina Allen
knows all too well. More and more of
her students arrive having never
cooked so much as an egg, or needing
lessons in remedial onion chopping.
She remembers one student who
thought she’d ruined a bowl of heavy
cream because she’d whipped it too
much. She thought the clumps and
clots in the bowl meant it was bad.
“I said, ‘Stop! Don’t throw it out!”’
says Allen, author of “Forgotten Skills
of Cooking.” “I said, ‘You’ve made
butter!’ She was completely fascinat-
As cooking has been rendered
optional — the victim of rising restau-
rant culture, myriad take-out options
and supermarket sections packed with
pre-cut vegetables, shredded cheese
and prepared foods — Allen and others
say cooks are increasingly losing
touch with skills considered basic, or
even essential, just a generation or
two ago.
And that is changing the way people
like Allen teach, as well as how recipes
are developed and written.
“Nowadays, we have to be more spe-
cific — ‘Fold it in with a rubber spatu-
la.’ — because people don’t know what
folding is versus stirring,” says Julia
Collin Davison, executive food editor
for books at America’s Test Kitchen.
“Now we list in our recipes more often
what utensils to use: Stir with a spoon.
Use a chef’s knife for this. Use a par-
ing knife for this. Over the years we’ve
altered our recipe style dramatically
based on reader feedback.”
America’s Test Kitchen, known for
its almost obsessive precision in
recipe development, isn’t the only
one. During the last decade or so, most
cookbook and magazine recipes have
begun to reflect the change in reader
knowledge. While recipe writers could
once use a shorthand style that
assumed a basic knowledge, they now
need to be far more explicit.
“There was a time when you said
‘sear’ or ‘cream butter and sugar, ’ and
everyone knew what that means,” says
Sarah Copeland, food director at Real
Simple magazine. “Now you say, ‘Heat
your skillet over medium-high heat,
add oil, cook until golden brown.’ . . .
You took what was a two-word process
and made it a 30-word process.”
But if you’re ready to get back in the
kitchen and reverse the culinary brain
drain, we’ve assembled a list of essen-
tials skills experts say every home
cook should have.
Knife skills are step No. 1 in any and
all cooking. Cutting your own vegeta-
bles, rather than buying them pre-cut,
makes a dramatic difference in the tex-
ture, flavor and price of a dish, Collin
Davison says. Plus, mastering basic
cutting technique shrinks prep time
and makes cooking easier and more
“If it takes you 15 minutes to cut up
a single bell pepper, dinner’s going to
take you 3 hours,” she says. “And
when you’re good at knife skills,
cooking is just way more fun.” Many
cooking schools offer classes in basic
knife skills, but excellent online
videos also are available.
Searing is the act of quickly brown-
ing meat over high heat using a pan,
broiler or grill. “It’s one of those
instant ah-ha’s when people make the
most beautiful seared chicken breast
and it looks just like the magazine,”
says Real Simple’s Copeland. Certain
small steps — heating the pan proper-
l y, patting the meat dry before putting
it in the pan — help ensure success.
Real Simple and other sites offer step-
by-step videos. “Those are a perfect
entry point,” she says.
Sauteing is searing’s more delicate
cousin. Used to soften and brown veg-
etables and meats to be eaten on their
own or as a base for soups, stews or
other dishes, sauteing involves quick-
ly cooking ingredients in a small
amount of fat. The process requires
high heat and a pan large enough to
avoid crowding the ingredients. Learn
Getting in touch with forgotten kitchen skills
Searing is one of those instant ah-ha moments when people
make the most beautiful food that looks just like the magazine.

the movie qualified as a documentary, since
it depicts a firsthand account of real events
that took place here. So it’s unlikely just
any Hollywood blockbuster would get the
same permission in the future.
Though the title derives from the Nobel
Prize-winning novelist’s nickname, the
movie is based on an autobiographical
script by Denne Bart Petitclerc, who is
played by Giovanni Ribisi (”Avatar, ”
“Saving Private Ryan”). Hemingway is por-
trayed by theater and screen veteran Adrian
Petitclerc was abandoned by his father as
a young boy, fell in love with Hemingway’s
writing and later came to see him as a father
While working for the Miami Herald in
the 1950s, Petitclerc wrote a letter to
Hemingway professing his admiration. He
didn’t intend to send it, but his girlfriend
found it and dropped it in the mail.
On a recent Saturday, a reading room at the
University of Havana library stood in for
the Herald newsroom. Cuban extras milled
about in slim ties and saddle shoes, long
skirts and horn-rimmed glasses. Vintage
typewriters clacked away.
The scene retells the moment when
Petitclerc, known as “Ed” in the movie,
fields a fateful phone call that at first he
thinks is a prank by one of his pals.
“Good letter, kid,” says Hemingway. “You
like to fish?”
Before long, Ed is on a boat with his idol,
and the two strike up a friendship that would
last until Hemingway’s 1961 suicide.
The film crew got access to some of
Havana’s most iconic locales, including the
former Government Palace, which long ago
was turned into a museum celebrating
Castro’s revolution.
At the majestic Grand Theater, which is
closed for restoration, a sumptuous salon
was tricked out to look like the bar of the
Ambos Mundos hotel where Hemingway
frequently stayed. In this scene, Ed is tipped
off by notorious mobster Santo Trafficante
(James Remar; “Django Unchained,”
“Dexter”) that FBI director J. Edgar Hoover
has it out for Hemingway.
Producers even secured unprecedented per-
mission to shoot inside Hemingway’s for-
mer estate, Finca Vigia, today considered
such a shrine that tourists aren’t even
allowed inside and must peer in through the
Sparks who has played Hemingway on
stage since 2005, confessed to something
of a spiritual connection to the writer and
said it was a magical experience portraying
him in the land he loved.
“To be playing a section of the film where
he’s struggling with writer’s block, I’m
standing on exactly the square foot of
ground that he stood on, with his typewriter
in front of me, playing the scene. It wasn’t
acting, it was channeling,” Sparks said. “It
was just allowing him to come through.”
There have also been some only-in-Cuba
moments of frustration.
In a country with a history of high-seas
defections, something as simple as getting
on a boat requires official approval. So
when cast members’ names were missing
from a list one day, an open-water shoot was
Cuba’s scarce and creaky Internet service
forced the crew to return to the yesteryear
practice of slipping the day’s call sheets
under hotel room doors, rather than sending
them by email.
Much of the equipment had to be brought
in from overseas to guarantee high produc-
tion values.
But the payoff was the opportunity to
shoot in a city that has in many ways
remained frozen in the 1950s, with classic
American automobiles from the era readily
available to provide a historic backdrop.
“It’s been chaotic. Every day there’s a new
drama,” said English actor Joely
Richardson (”Nip/Tuck,” “The Girl With the
Dragon Tattoo”), who plays Hemingway’s
fourth wife, Mary. “It’s been so nutty. But
you know what? It’s up there with my best
experiences. It’s been fantastic.”
Petitclerc went on to a long career as a
journalist and writer of books, TV shows
and movies, including the screenplay for
“Islands in the Stream,” based on the
Hemingway novel of the same name. He
died in 2006.
Hemingway lived in Cuba from 1939 to
1960 and wrote much of “The Old Man and
the Sea” and other works here, and islanders
claim him as much as Americans do.
The two countries’ mutual affection for
Hemingway is among the few things they
agree on. Cuba and the U.S. have cooperat-
ed multiple times to preserve his writings
and belongings — so it’s not surprising the
first Hollywood feature to shoot in Cuba is
about him.
“Hemingway was probably the most
prominent American to make Cuba his
home, and I think the people of Cuba to this
day cherish him and love him,” said Yari
(”Crash,” “The Illusionist”). “And hopeful-
ly this film will become an addition to that
component of bridging this gap between
two cultures and two peoples that have drift-
ed apart.”

to saute properly in a class or with an
online video. And expect to make mis-
“If it always comes out a little bland and
wan looking, you need to turn up the
heat,” Collin Davison says.
“If the pan catches fire, you need to turn
down the heat. People are afraid of the
mess and the smoke.”
Emulsifying is the process of combin-
ing liquids that generally resist being
mixed together, such as oil and vinegar. It
is used to make basic items such as salad
dressing, pesto and hummus. “You don’t
want to serve something where the oil is
separated out,” Copeland says. “And it’s as
simple as knowing to drizzle while whisk-
ing. ”
Chefs test the doneness of meat by com-
paring its firmness to different parts of
their palms. You can skip that exercise,
Collin Davison says and invest in a reli-
able shortcut: the digital thermometer.
“We temp everything from fish to burgers
to steaks and roasts,” she says. “Once you
learn your temps, you’re an expert.”
Collin Davison recommends getting a
high-quality thermometer and download-
ing a temperature chart from the Internet.

James Peterson’s new book, “Done,” a
guide to knowing how to cook everything
— from pot roast to poultry to pasta —
just right.
You may recall Julia Child plunging her
quickly boiled green beans into ice water.
That’s blanching (the boiling) and shock-
ing (the ice) and it keeps vegetables crisp
and green.
It also pre-cooks vegetables that can be
quickly sauced, browned or broiled just
before serving.
“It’s a trick that restaurants use a lot to
prepare things in advance,” Copeland
says. “If you blanch and shock your veg-
etables in the morning, and then toss them
for dinner, you just cut your cooking time
in half. It’s kind of a technique that’s a
short cut and food improver more than
anything else.”

have demonstrated educational excel-
lence for all students and who have
made significant progress in narrow-
ing the achievement gap. Eligible ele-
mentary schools were invited to par-
ticipate. Schools in the Daily Journal
coverage area included Nesbit
Elementary School in Belmont, North
Hillsborough and East Hillsborough
elementary schools, North Star
Academy in Redwood City, Portola
Elementary in San Bruno and College
Park Elementary in San Mateo. All of
Millbrae’s elementary schools
received the designation.
This is the first time Meadows
Elementary School in Millbrae
received the recognition. It was recog-
nized for two signature practices, its
English language arts instruction by
implementing professional learning
communities and driving student learn-
ing through collaboration.
“This is big for them,” said
Superintendent Linda Luna. “They’ve
tried before. They’ve been working
really hard and shown the most growth
academically. ”
The awards are especially important
for the district this year given the dis-
trict’s turmoil over the resignation of
Taylor Middle School principal Lesley
Martin and complaints over district
climate, said Luna.
“Through a hard year, we really want
to celebrate the ongoing hard work of
our teachers, staff and leadership,” she
said. “Bumpy roads equal growth for
us. The hard work of our staff really
pays off.”
Millbrae’s Spring Valley Elementary
School received the award for improv-
ing English language arts instruction
by fostering a professional learning
community, improving school climate
and bridging the gap through character
education. Recent principal Vahn
Phayprasert, now assistant superin-
tendent of Educational Services, said
he was excited to get the invitation to
apply to be a distinguished school.
“What we’ve learned is some of our
subgroups did a really good job in the
state assessment,” he said. “This is
just an icing on the cake. We were
rewarded because our student achieve-
ment has risen.”
It’s important to Belmont’s Nesbit
Elementary School because it’s recog-
nition of the extensive amount of
work that the school has done to close
the achievement gap, said Principal
Robin K. Pang-Maganaris. The school
was recognized for equity in instruc-
tion through intentional differentia-
tion, along with program instruction
coherence through professional devel-
opment and collaboration by sending
teachers to Columbia University for
reading and writing workshops, along
with some training from the San
Mateo County Office of Education.
“We’ve spent the past three years
revitalizing ourselves,” she said. “It’s
just lovely to get confirmation from
the state of California as well.
Students at Nesbit face extra chal-
lenges as its population is different
from the rest of the Belmont-Redwood
Shores Elementary School District,
with 30 percent of children living at
the poverty line and 30 percent being
English language learners. This is
compared to other schools in the dis-
trict that have about 5 percent of stu-
dents in each of these demographics,
she said.
“At the same time, our children are
still vibrant, dynamic learners,” she

secondary schools during alternate

decide,” she said. “The one thing is we
really need to open the school. It’s
important to our community and to
alleviate the overcrowding. ... It’s a
loss for both (Hillsborough and
Burlingame) of our communities,
Christine Fitzgerald, one of the peti-
tioners in the case and member of the
alliance, said it’s a great victory for
the neighbors who live near the
school and felt the plan should be
postponed to allow for more discus-
sion and possible changes to the traf-
fic plan.
“We’re really happy,” she said. “It’s
huge. Just looking at it, you can see
both buildings take up the majority of
the property. It just boggles the mind
to think where they’re going to put all
these cars. The judge is right in her
Growing enrollment in the
Burlingame Elementary School
District resulted in the purchase of the
previously-closed Hoover Elementary
School on Summit Drive in 2010.
Since then, the district worked on
plans to renovate the building to meet
current standards.
Residents filed the lawsuit in January
2013. At a July 2013 hearing, the
alliance’s attorney Kevin Haroff said
the district failed to address traffic
impacts in its December 2012 mitigat-
ed negative declaration study and
review. A mitigated negative declara-
tion is like an environmental impact
review but less extensive. He also said
the district committed a violation of
the California Environmental Quality
Act by dismissing community con-
cerns about traffic. Haroff cited an
October 2012 letter from the town of
Hillsborough stating concerns about
the rebuilding being ignored.
The plan for the school called for
two 8-foot-wide curbside bays to be
created for pickup and dropoff along
the west side of Summit Drive adjacent
to the school providing enough curb
space for 15 cars. In addition, the
existing school site curb would be
shifted west to provide for the bays and
two 10-foot-wide vehicle travel lanes,
which will increase the width of
Summit Drive to 17 feet in some areas.
Hoover was founded in 1931, closed
in 1979 and repurchased by the district
for $4.8 million in 2010. MacIsaac
estimated the costs for renovations
and new equipment would be about $13
million. Measure D, a $56 million
bond measure passed by voters in
November 2012, was used to cover
most of the costs.
The city of Burlingame, the town of
Hillsborough and Supervisor Dave
Pine are hosting a community discus-
sion on the school 9 a.m. May 10 at
Hillsborough Town Hall, 1600
Floribunda Ave. in Hillsborough.

FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2014
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Social engagements
will play a major role in your life if you let them.
Make a fresh start. It’s a good time to enhance your
appearance and improve your image.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You have to meet any
obligations you’ve made to family members before
you help outsiders. Confrontations can be avoided by
living up to past promises. Do what’s right.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Let someone else
do the talking while you sit on the sidelines. You
will learn valuable information by closely listening
to people with experience. Use the information you
receive to get ahead.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Even if you feel like
slacking off, push yourself to get things done.
Moneymaking opportunities are apparent, but you
must keep your career as a top priority.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t get caught up in
an unfortunate battle of wills. Get all the information
first and wait to take action. Time is on your side, and
you don’t need to make hasty mistakes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t allow anyone
to put you down. Your good judgment and sound
decisions have served you well in the past, so
continue doing what you’re doing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Avoid joint ventures.
Reviewing your financial documents will help to
alleviate any confusion you may have regarding
investments and money matters. Improve your
personal surroundings and relationships.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Your work may
suffer if you dwell on your personal problems. Keep
your plans to yourself if you don’t want someone to
take credit for your ideas.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Let others know
what’s on your mind. You will gain valuable insight
if you speak up. Round up close friends for some
recreation and entertainment. Romance is on the rise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Risky financial
ventures will be your downfall. Your desire to help
those less fortunate is admirable, but keep an eye
on your pocketbook. Investigate an organization
carefully before making a donation.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Relationships
should be your focus. Pay extra attention to the way
you present who you are and what your life goals
are. Sharing common aims will bring you closer to
someone special.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You are on a fast track
to completing a multitude of different tasks. Others
will be hard-pressed to keep up, but if you maintain
control, they will enthusiastically align with you.

in their advertisements that they are not

essential because a ballot measure requires
two-thirds votes in both houses of the
Legislature, and Democrats have lost their
supermajority in the Senate because three
members of their party who are ensnared in
legal trouble have been suspended. The deal
doesn’t require the governor’s signature.
Assembly Minority Leader Connie
Conway said the deal that emerged Thursday
reflects long-standing GOP priorities.
“It will ensure that money is actually
saved, that it cannot be siphoned off to
grow government, and that we will have
resources to pay down debt and protect core
priorities in tough years,” the Republican
from Tulare said in a statement.
Republicans also wanted to ensure that
extra tax revenue during good years would
not be siphoned off to create new, ongoing
programs that the state can’t afford when
the economy sours.
The measure now on the ballot, Assembly
Constitutional Amendment 4, grew out of a
2010 bipartisan budget compromise that
included then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
That version creates a rainy-day fund requir-
ing a 3 percent annual contribution from
the state’s general fund.
The new version cuts that to 1.5 percent
but calls for the fund to be replenished with
additional revenue from capital gains taxes
during boom years. At any time, the rainy-
day fund could grow to a maximum of 10
percent of the general fund.
For the next 15 years, half of the rainy-
day fund would be dedicated to paying down
state debt and liabilities, estimated at $340
Put in context of California’s current
budget of about $100 billion, the state
would set aside at least $1.5 billion rather
than the $3 billion currently demanded.
Half of that money could go to plugging
shortfalls in public pensions. The state
could put aside billions more as
Californians pay taxes on investments in a
booming stock market, and keep adding to
the rainy-day fund until it hits $10 billion.
Transfers to the rainy-day fund could be
suspended and additional withdrawals could
be made during a recession, but only within
certain limits. That was a priority for
Democrats, who wanted flexibility to tap
the money when needed during a rough
The deal also creates a reserve for educa-
tion spending, which wouldn’t operate
until schools funding is fully restored to
pre-recession levels.
“While we certainly don’t wish to return
to the past, we cannot stagnate in the pres-
ent either,” Senate President Pro Tem
Darrell Steinberg, a Democrat, said in a
statement. “Instead of stockpiling money
while ignoring looming debt, this smarter
approach locks the state into saving and

UNITED NATIONS — The head of the mis-
sion charged with destroying Syria’s chem-
ical weapons said Thursday the last 16 con-
tainers of dangerous chemical agents that
need to be transported out of the country are
in a contested area not far from Damascus
that is currently inaccessible.
Sigrid Kaag appealed to countries with
influence on armed groups fighting in Syria
to help arrange unfettered access for experts
to the site at a military air base and safe
transport for the chemicals to the port of
Latakia, where Danish and Norwegian ships
are waiting to take the containers to a U.S.
vessel for destruction.
Kaag spoke to reporters after briefing the
U.N. Security Council and said in an inter-
view later with the Associated Press that the
16 containers — representing 8 percent of
Syria’s declared stockpile — contain mate-
rial to produce the deadly nerve agent sarin
as well as other dangerous chemical agents.
She said it would take “less than a work-
ing week” to pack the most dangerous
chemicals into five containers and the less
toxic chemicals into 11 containers, put
them on a convoy, and get them to Latakia.
But it’s not possible at the moment to
arrange a cease-fire and get to the large mil-
itary airfield by road.
Kaag said two other sites in the vicinity
of the air base where chemical agents had
been stored have been taken over by armed
opposition groups. There are no chemicals
at the two sites now, she said.
But the Syrian government moved chemi-
cals from one of the sites to the air base,
known as Site 2, as a preventive measure
and now they are part of the material that
cannot be moved safely, she said.
Kaag said the armed groups around the
military base, which is guarded, are “the
more extreme kind,” adding that “global
jihad has come to Syria.”
The international effort to eliminate
Syria’s chemical weapons was sparked by a
chemical weapons attack near Damascus
last Aug. 21 that killed hundreds of people.
It was blamed on the government of
Syrian President Bashar Assad, which
denied involvement.
Under an agreement brokered by the
United States and Russia, the Syrian gov-
ernment is responsible for getting the most
dangerous chemicals to the port, and
destroying the rest inside the country.
The April 27 deadline has already been
“Obviously the issue is that the materials
leave the country as soon as possible,”
Kaag said.
She said the Syrians have “indicated to us
that military operations may be under way
or are under way to address the situation”
near the base and reopen the roads.
“From their perspective, it is something
that needs to happen because it is an impor-
tant route, and it’s not far from Damascus,”
she said.
In the meantime, Kaag is urging Syrian
authorities to fly in teams to prepare the
chemicals for shipment, which includes
putting them in barrels and packing them in
accordance with international maritime haz-
ardous goods standards.
This would underline Syria’s “intent to
finish the job,” she said, and if the roads are
opened soon it would allow the government
“to stay as close to the June 30 deadline as
possible” for the total elimination of its
chemical weapons, she said.
