teachers to
get pay hike
By Angela Swartz
After months of negotiations,
raises are coming for teachers in
the Redwood City Elementary
School District.
On Monday, the district and the
Redwood City Teachers
Association reached a tentative
agreement, resolving negotia-
tions for the 2013-14 school year.
Under the terms of the agreement,
teachers will receive a total
increase of 3.5 percent, of which 2
percent will be retroactive to July
1, 2013, and the remaining 1.5
percent will be effective Monday,
June 2, 2014.
“By reaching this agreement,
the district reaffirms its deep com-
mitment to its students, teachers,
staff and community, ”
Superintendent Jan Christensen
said in a prepared statement.

The city of Belmont is experi-
encing revenue growth but as the
City Council prepares to approve
its budget for the upcoming fiscal
year, it is taking lessons learned
from the economic recession and
applying it by bolstering its
reserves while balancing its need
to fund decades of deferred infra-
structure maintenance.
While keeping the goal of sta-
bility in mind, some councilmem-
bers would like to fund initiatives
such as planning to create a
vibrant downtown and improve-
ments to Belmont’s parks and
Ralston Avenue.
The council will vote June 10 to
approve its fiscal year 2014-15
budget, said the city’s Finance
Director Thomas Fil.
“It was a shake-up for every-
body, the extent of the recession
was unprecedented in most peo-
ple’s lifetimes,” Fil said. “We
could see that we had to make seri-
ous changes … and made some
structural changes and employees
stepped up to the plate and
changed their benefit programs.
All those factors are now working
to help us be in a much stronger
position. So the silver lining to
have gone through that recession
was, I think we’re stronger in
many respects and more resilient
than we’d been in the past.”
Mayor Warren Lieberman and
Councilman Eric Reed said the
city’s strong financial position
could primarily be credited the
finance department’s wise recom-
mendations and staff who agreed
to contribute more toward their
retirement plans.

No cable cars in San
Francisco; workers out sick
Francisco’s famed cable cars were not
running Monday morning and the rest
of the city’s transit system was experi-
encing rush-hour delays after workers
called in sick, transportation officials
The San Francisco Municipal
Transportation Agency was running a
third of its normal morning service,
spokesman Paul Rose said. The
agency runs buses, light rail and street
cars in addition to the cable cars.
Rose said he did not know how many
of the agency’s employees called in
sick, but there were rumors over the
weekend that a significant number of
workers would not be coming in.
“We’re doing our best to balance
service throughout the city and pro-
vide service on every route and line,
but at this point there will be delays,”
he said.
All express buses were running local
service in the morning and stopping
at every stop, the agency said. The
Bay Area Rapid Transit Agency was
honoring tickets on city transporta-
tion all day from the Daly City and
Balboa Park stations to downtown San
Francisco, Rose said.
The transit system’s operators, who
are represented by Transport Workers
Union Local 250-A, voted Friday on a
new contract that would give them a
raise of more than 11 percent over two
years. However, it also would require
them to cover a 7.5 percent pension
payment that is currently paid by the
city’s transit agency.
Report: California teen
surfs for three years in a row
DANA POINT — A Southern
California teen who says surfing keeps
her stoked marked a milestone by hit-
ting the waves daily for three years, a
newspaper reported Monday.
Meg Roh, 15, of Dana Point com-
pleted 1,095 consecutive days of surf-

the Orange County Register said.
“Every day I surf, I get stoked. It’s
definitely taught me that I can do any
of the dreams I set my mind to,” she
Roh was joined by family and
friends to celebrate her accomplish-

Her mother, Sue Hann, says she’s
proud of her daughter’s dedication and
“It’s a big deal on the days you don’t
want to get out there. I feel like that’s
such discipline, to know that’s her
goal and she’s going to do anything to
get there, even when she doesn’t want
to do it,” said Hann.
Roh began her surfing streak on
June 1, 2011, when she made a vow to
surf every day of summer. She decided
to try to make it to 100 days and then
300 days and it kept going.
Puppy drives car into
Massachusetts pond
CANTON, Mass. — After going for a
walk, a German shepherd puppy owned
by a Massachusetts man decided to go
for a drive — straight into a pond.
John Costello tells WFXT-TVthat his
12-week-old puppy, Rosie, was so
excited Sunday after going for a walk at
Bolivar Pond in Canton that she jumped
in his running car, hit the gear stick and

MILTON, Wash. — A Washington
state couple in their 80s say they man-

burst into their home shortly after they
returned from a Tacoma casino where

They say a man in his 20s barged into
their home the night of Friday, May 23,

ed their money and threatened to shoot.
Jim Lilja says he told the intruder he
was 85 years old, so “if you want to
shoot, go ahead and shoot.”

Local and state agriculture officials are
investigating whether Oriental fruit flies are
breeding in San Mateo County after a single
fly was found in the city of San Carlos.
The Oriental fruit fly targets hundreds of
fruit, vegetables and plants which is why
officials are keen to identify and eradicate
any local populations. The female flies lay
eggs inside ripening fruit. The eggs hatch
into maggots that eat through the fruit’s
flesh and leave it inedible and unsellable.
Fred Crowder, the San Mateo County agri-
cultural commissioner, and the California
Department of Food and Agriculture
announced jointly Monday they are con-
ducting an extensive survey in response to
the discovery of the single Oriental fruit fly.
The survey will lay an extra 350 traps over
roughly 81 square miles around the area
where the fly was trapped.
“Early detection of these extremely dam-
aging pests is critical to effective control
and to minimize impacts to both the agri-
cultural and urban communities,” Crowder
said in a prepared statement.
Officials are also asking that residents
don’t transport or mail fresh fruit, vegeta-
bles, plants or soil into California unless
inspectors have first cleared the shipment as
the flies can hide in a variety of produce.
The Oriental fruit fly is found in much of
Southern Asia including neighboring
islands like Sri Lanka and Taiwan and in
Hawaii. The most common way the flies
enter the state is through fruit and vegeta-
bles illegally brought back to California
from infested global regions by travelers.
Locally, the flies target fruit and vegeta-
bles including apples, pears, plums, apri-
cots, cucumbers, figs, loquats, oranges,
peaches, persimmons, grapes, tomatoes
and walnuts.
Residents with questions about the flies
and the survey traps should contact the San
Mateo County Agricultural Commissioner’s
Office during weekday work hours at 363-
4700 or the California Department of Food
and Agriculture Pest Hotline at (800) 491-

A woman suspected in a string of “door-
knock” burglaries in San Mateo was arrested
Thursday allegedly in the act on the 2200
block of Armada Way, according to police.
At approximately 9:30 p.m., the residents
of the home called police when they heard
their patio door break and believed an
intruder was in their home. San Mateo
police responded and arrested Jennifer
Chao, 36, a transient, on scene, according
to police.
Officers discovered property in her pos-
session that connected her to a residential
burglary on the nearby 800 block of
Sextant Court earlier in the day. Officers
also recognized her as the
suspect in another theft
case earlier in the week
on the 1100 block of
Shoal Drive, also in a
nearby neighborhood,
according to police.
Officers Andrew T.
Trujillo and Hans J.
Jorgensen followed up at
Chao’s hotel room,
where they located property related to a
third burglary, in the 2200 block of Armada
Way, reported that same day, according to
A neighborhood canvass by officers
revealed that Chao was using the “door-
knock burglar” technique, a common crimi-
nal trend of knocking on doors to case the
neighborhood for apparently unoccupied
target residences, according to police.
Detectives followed up on this case over
the weekend, and were able to locate more
property stolen by Chao in East Bay Pawn
Shops, and have held those items at the
Pawn Shops for recovery.
Detectives are still examining some of
the property recovered from Chao, and the
investigation continues, according to
Chao was booked into San Mateo County
Jail for multiple residential burglaries,
grand theft and possession of stolen proper-
t y.

Police warn residents about Craigslist scam
South San Francisco police are warning residents about a
scam involving the online classified ads website Craigslist.
On May 10, a resident reported responding to a Craigslist
ad asking for female models needed for a photo shoot in San
Francisco, police said.
The suspect sent the victim a check for $1,950 and asked
for the victim to deposit the check, then to send a portion
of the money back to the suspect to pay for transportation,
equipment and makeup, according to police.
The victim sent the suspect money, but later discovered
that no photo shoot was ever booked and that the check sent
to the victim was bogus, police said.
The suspect, who claimed to be in Texas, remains at large.
Police advise residents using Craigslist to not accept any
checks or send payments via money order in advance of
services. Anyone with information about this incident or
similar cases can call South San Francisco police at (650)

SAN FRANCISCO — ASan Francisco
social media maven and former political
consultant who was wanted on suspi-
cion of possessing explosives has been
taken into custody after a three-day man-
Federal agents and the San Francisco
police said they captured Ryan Kelly
Chamberlain II, 42, on Monday after-
noon shortly after announcing that they
had found his car near Crissy Field, just
south of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Though Chamberlain was considered
armed and dangerous, FBI spokesman
Peter Lee said Monday that he did not
seem to pose an immediate threat to
public safety.
“Anyone who has the means, methods
and access to make a
bomb should be con-
sidered armed and
dangerous,” Lee said
before the arrest.
“That is the reason
why we want to
bring him in safely

materials crews,

hood, blocking off the street to vehicle
and pedestrian traffic for much of the
Lee gave no further details about
the nature of the investigation, and
the affidavit and search warrant used
to enter Chamberlain’s home
remained under seal.
Brooke Wentz, his boss at a music
rights consultancy group, said
Chamberlain last contacted her Friday
to remind her to deposit his paycheck in
a new bank account. The conversation
was uneventful and Wentz said she was
“tremendously dumbfounded” by the
news that the contractor she had hired to
handle her company’s social media
accounts was wanted by the FBI.
“He’s a nice guy,” Wentz said.
She said it didn’t seem like
Chamberlain was staying in his apart-
ment. When she mailed him his pay-
check in April, he told her he would have
to go to the apartment to pick it up.
She said he seemed to be under finan-
cial pressure because he told her that two
friends who were leasing his apartment
left without telling him and he had to
scramble to pay for two rentals.

Sampling of states’ reaction to carbon cuts
By Dina Cappiello and Josh Lederman
WASHINGTON — Taking aim at global
warming, President Barack Obama introduced
a politically charged plan Monday to order
big and lasting cuts in the pollution dis-
charged by America’s power plants. But the
plan, though ambitious in scope, wouldn’t
be fully realized until long after Obama’s suc-
cessor took office and would generate only
modest progress worldwide.
Obama’s proposal to force a 30 percent cut
in carbon dioxide emissions, by the year
2030 from 2005 levels, drew immediate
scorn from Republicans, industry groups and
even a few Democrats who are facing fraught
re-election campaigns in energy-dependent
states. Environmental activists were split,
with some hailing the plan and others calling
it insufficiently strict to prevent the worst
effects of global warming.
In all likelihood, the plan marks one of the
most significant steps Obama will take to
shape the country he governs during his final
years in office. Stymied by Congress on near-
ly every front, Obama has turned to actions
he can take on his own, but has found limited
means to effect the type of sweeping change
he has envisioned in his two campaigns.
The effort would cost up to $8.8 billion
annually in 2030, the EPAprojected. But the
actual price is impossible to predict until
states decide how to reach their targets — a
process that will take years.
Obama, in a conference call with public
health leaders, sought to head off critics
who have argued the plan will kill jobs,
drive up power bills and crush the econo-
my in regions of the U.S.
“What we’ve seen every time is that these
claims are debunked when you actually give
workers and businesses the tools and the
incentives they need to innovate,” Obama
Never before has the U.S. sought to restrict
carbon dioxide from existing power plants,
although Obama’s administration is also pur-
suing the first limits on newly built plants.
While the plan would push the nation closer
to achieving Obama’s pledge to reduce total
U.S. emissions by 17 percent by 2020, it
still would fall short of the global reductions
scientists say are needed to stabilize the
planet’s temperature.
Connie Hedegard, the European Union’s
commissioner for climate change, called the
rule “the strongest action ever taken by the
U.S. government to fight climate change.”
But she also said, “All countries, including
the United States, must do even more than
what this reduction trajectory indicates.”
Fossil-fueled U.S. power plants account for
6 percent of global carbon dioxide emis-
sions, so even a steep domestic cut affects
just a portion worldwide. And even with the
new limits, coal plants that churn out carbon
dioxide will still provide about 30 percent of
U.S. energy, according to predictions by the
Environmental Protection Agency, down
from about 40 percent today.
Power plants are America’s largest source
of greenhouse gases, accounting for 38 per-
cent of annual emissions. Plants have
already reduced carbon emissions nearly 13
percent since 2005, meaning they are about
halfway to meeting the administration’s

SACRAMENTO — The first gubernatorial
primary under California’s new top-two sys-
tem has evolved into a typical campaign
between Republicans hoping to come in
second, pitting a state lawmaker who is a tea
party favorite against a socially moderate
investment banker making his first run for
public office.
Republican Party leaders do not seriously
expect to defeat Democratic Gov. Jerry
Brown in the fall, yet the GOP governor’s
contest is the most high-profile race on
Tuesday’s statewide primary ballot. The
decision could determine the future of the
party that has struggled to stay relevant in
the left-leaning state.
The primary also includes a number of
hard-fought congressional and state legisla-
tive races in which candidates are vying to
challenge incumbents in the fall. All
statewide offices are up for grabs, including
secretary of state and superintendent of pub-
lic instruction, which have attracted more
attention than other races.
In far Northern California, voters will
determine whether two counties will join a
movement to secede from California, while
voters in a third county, Siskiyou, will
decide whether to pursue changing the coun-
ty’s name to “Republic of Jefferson.”
The lack of ballot initiatives and an elec-
tion in a non-presidential race year, com-
bined with Brown being a shoo-in to
advance to the general election, have led to
predictions of extremely low turnout
between 25 and 30 percent of registered vot-
Such a turnout would be a record low for a
California gubernatorial primary, said Paul
Mitchell, vice president of Political Data
Inc., a consulting firm that tracks voter data.
The previous low came in June 2010,
when 33.1 percent of registered voters cast
ballots. The lowest turnout ever for a June
primary was in 2008, when 28.2 percent
voted after California moved its presidential
primary to March, taking the biggest race
off the June ballot.
The two Republicans seeking to challenge
Brown in November are engaged in a tight
race. And with many ballots being cast by
mail at the last minute, the tally for No. 2
could remain up in the air after election
State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has
worried GOP leaders with his far-right views
and statements linking President Barack
Obama to Hitler and opponent Neel
Kashkari to Islamic Sharia law.
Kashkari, an Indian American and social
moderate, has pitched himself as appealing
to the state’s rapidly changing demograph-
ics, which the GOP needs to attract after
decades of sliding registration. Kashkari,
however, has been dogged by criticism of
his 2008 vote for Obama and his lead role in
the U.S. Treasury’s bank bailout.
Though Tuesday’s ballot has no hot-but-
ton initiatives to lure voters, there are some
fiercely contested seats for Congress, the
state Legislature and statewide offices. Some
are expensive intra-party fights in which
two members of the same party could
advance to November.
The nonpartisan superintendent of public
instruction contest has drawn outsized
spending in a proxy fight between
California’s teachers unions and reformers.
Incumbent Tom Torlakson faces a fellow
Democrat, Marshall Tuck, a former charter
school executive backed by reform-minded
Democrats and Republicans. Outside groups
have spent $4.2 million on the race so far.
It is the only statewide race in which a
candidate can win outright by getting more
than 50 percent of the vote. In the others,
the top two vote-getters move on to the gen-
eral election, regardless of party affiliation.
In the race to become California’s next
elections chief, USC lecturer Dan Schnur, an
independent, faces Democratic Sen. Alex
Padilla, Democrat Derek Cressman and
Republican Pete Peterson.

Brown pelican breeding population plunges
LOS ANGELES — California brown pelicans, which were
driven to the brink of extinction in the last century, are in
trouble again. An annual survey completed last month found
a drastic plunge in the population of breeding pairs, accord-
ing to a statement released Friday by the University of
California, Davis.
The survey in Mexico’s Gulf of California — where about
90 percent of the pelicans typically breed and raise their
chicks — found that areas that typically host hundreds or
thousands of nesting pairs held far fewer, and a few places
were completely empty, the statement said.

recently read an
article in the trade
journal “American
Funeral Director”
about the famous
quote by the late
“Sir William Ewart
Gladstone”, the celebrated English four term
Prime Minister who was known for his
colorful oratories and speeches on the floor
of Parliament. This 19
century statesman
was renowned for many unique sayings, but
he is most noted among Funeral Directors
for saying this: “Show me the manner in
which a nation cares for its dead, and I will
measure with mathematical exactness the
tender mercies of its people, their respect for
the laws of the land and their loyalty to high
ideals.” This quote is very lyrical and well
thought out. It has become a long time
custom for many Funeral Homes to display
this quote on a plaque for all to see. The
meaning is obvious and is a direct
comparison between caring for our fallen
loved ones and the way we care for
ourselves, our community and our society.
To many observers it may appear that
we’ve lost the motivation to care for our
loved ones in a proper way, and that our
society has become misguided. Taking into
consideration the way our government
leaders sometimes act, without the maturity
to function unselfishly, is disturbing, and the
reasons they got elected can be alarming.
Also, in the eyes of logical people violence
should be against our nature, but seemingly
is embedded in our way of life. It is topsy-
turvy for a culture to view cruelty and tribal
brutality as a form of normality, and for love
to be viewed as an obscenity.
Yes, some say our society is falling apart,
but looking at the overall big picture I see
most people yearning to live a peaceful and
courteous life with those around them. Most
people are not violent. Most people want to
be accepted. Most people want to be happy.
Remember that “hate” is taught.
Wouldn’t it make more sense for “love” to
be taught? Teaching youngsters to be
curious and to enjoy the “differences” of
those around them would be a good start.
They say that it’s hard to teach old dogs new
tricks. But old dogs will not be here forever,
and with effort every young dog could be
cultivated with ideals for supporting others
with respect. Putting this into practice may
seem daunting, but it’s not impossible and
over time could be valuable for our future.
Humanity has always been burdened with
a good percentage of bad guys. But, all in
all, the ideals that the majority of us value
and strive to promote, life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, are shared in our core.
Going back to Gladstone’s quote, I see
the vast majority of the families we serve at
deeply committed to doing the right thing
for their loved ones. They come to us with a
desire for closure and to enact final tributes
for those they’ve cherished. Whether public
or private their feelings are similar, and
showing one last bit of proper care is their
goal. For me this is a sign of hope, showing
that overall we are a society of good people
with a nature to live in harmony and peace.

funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to

Who Or What Is Gladstone And
Why This Is Important
By Ken Dilanian and Riechmann
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon conclud-
ed in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl
walked away from his unit, and after an ini-
tial flurry of searching the military curbed
any high-risk rescue plans. But the U.S.
kept pursuing avenues to negotiate his
release, recently seeking to fracture the
Taliban network by making its leaders fear
a faster deal with underlings could prevent
the freedom they sought for five of their top
officials, American officials told the
Associated Press.
The U.S. government kept tabs on
Bergdahl’s whereabouts with spies, drones
and satellites, even as it pursued off-and-on
negotiations to get him back over the five
years of captivity that ended on Saturday.
Bergdahl was in stable condition Monday
at a U.S. military hospital in Germany, but
questions mounted at home over the way
his freedom was secured: Five high-level
members of the Taliban were released from
the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,
and sent to Qatar. The five, who will have to
stay in Qatar for a year before going back
to Afghanistan, include former ministers in
the Taliban government, commanders and
one man who had direct ties to the late al-
Qaida chief Osama bin Laden.
A U.S. defense official familiar with
efforts to free Bergdahl said the U.S.
government had been working in recent
months to split the Taliban network.
Different U.S. agencies had floated sev-
eral offers to the militants, and the
Taliban leadership feared that underlings
might cut a quick deal while they were
working to free the five detainees at
Guantanamo, said the official and a con-
gressional aide, both of whom spoke
only on condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to speak pub-
licly about efforts to release Bergdahl.
There was plenty of criticism about how
the deal came about.
“Knowing that various lines of effort
were presented and still under considera-
tion, none of which involved a dispropor-
tionate prisoner exchange, I am concerned
by the sudden urgency behind the prisoner
swap, given other lines of effort,” said
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who has crit-
icized the government effort to seek
Bergdahl’s release as disorganized.
One current and one former U.S. official
said Obama had signed off on a possible
prisoner swap. The president spoke to the
Qatari emir last Tuesday, and they gave each
other assurances about the proposed trans-
fers, said a senior administration official,
speaking on condition of anonymity
because the official wasn’t authorized to
discuss the deliberations in public.
One official briefed on the intelligence
said the Taliban also may have been wor-
ried about Bergdahl’s health, having been
warned that the U.S. would react fiercely if
he died in captivity. The Landstuhl
Regional Medical Center in Germany,
which is caring for Bergdahl, said he was
suffering from nutritional issues.
Bergdahl’s handoff to U.S. special forces
in eastern Afghanistan was never going to

Parents of school-age children
The other morning, near Central
Elementary School in Belmont, I saw
a southbound Honda CRVmake a wide
U-turn on Middle Road. The car went
onto the sidewalk, brushed the shrubs
and forced a boy to stop walking. He
easily could have been hit if he were
younger, running or distracted. I’m
going to admit it — I’ve made some
bad choices at drop-off and pick-up.
It’s a tough set-up at Central and
other schools in the area. Families
south of Central have to cross many
lanes of rush-hour commuters.
Families north of Central have to
proceed down Middle Road into rush-
hour congestion. I’m sure if there
were easy solutions, we would have
found them by now. The last month of
school is crazy-busy with final
assignments, performances and fun
activities. So, another reminder to
those of us who drive our kids to
school. Before starting our engines,
take a moment to tune out the
kids/bosses/our own expectations.
Accept that once or twice this month,
we might be late or make someone
wait. Remember: It’s worth it.

Disabled veterans
need affordable housing
As a disabled veteran, I am con-
cerned about the challenges veterans
face finding housing or keeping their
rented apartments due to rising rent
Disabled veterans need a stable liv-
ing environment to get and use the
services to help them rebuild them-
selves and their life. They cannot do
that if they are not near a veteran
affairs hospital that provides the
services they need.
The Redwood City Council is about
to make plans for how it will provide
housing for the next eight years. I
understand that the loss of redevelop-
ment funds and cuts in federal and
state funds make the building of
affordable housing more difficult, but
other communities are getting it
done. How can I expect any less from
my city? Members of the Redwood
City Council will be joining the
Redwood City Planning Commission
7 p.m. Tuesday, June 3 to talk about
those plans (known as the housing
element). We need to tell them to
make room for veterans and others
who are having a hard time living
I didn’t serve my country so only
the wealthy among us could remain in
our community. Disabled veterans
like me have risked their lives and
their health to protect our communi-
ties, so it’s important that the com-
munities return that obligation and
maintain affordable housing for dis-
abled veterans.

Look at the VA/Obamacare
Obamacare has many supporters and
nothing written here will change the
mind of the most ardent ideologue.
But for anyone who cares about
health care for themselves and their
loved ones, I hope you read this with
an open mind. Let’s take a look at the
VA. That is a “universal” care system
set up to care for our veterans. Yet, in
spite of well-documented problems
spanning years and a tripling of their
budget since 2001, veterans have
recently died while waiting for an
Hundreds of our vets had their
names deliberately deleted from the

destroyed records in an attempt to
make their job performance look bet-
ter than it was so they would receive
bonuses. The president put the situa-
tion at the VAthis way, “it’s totally
unacceptable.” There are many rea-
sons why the VAis failing our vets.
But just ask yourself this question,
“do you want the government in con-
trol of your health care?”
What is happening right now at the
VAis foreshadowing what the future
holds under Obamacare. But as bad as
it is, it is not too late to save yourself
provided that you vote for representa-
tives who will repeal Obamacare just
as soon as possible. As a point of
fact, U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San

and will do anything to keep it.

Letters to the editor
Elect to sit
this one out
aven’t voted yet today? Don’t bother.
Certainly, there are exceptions to this blanket
order. If you are already set on your candidates
and measures but just haven’t yet slipped into a
polling place or dropped off an absentee ballot, that’s
fine. Go ahead and keep that date with civic duty.
You’ve done your due diligence and chances are you’ve
actually taken time to know a little something about at
least some of the people and issues and positions in
this contest. The admonishment to sit this one out is
not for you.
But if reading these words is your first indication
that today even is Election Day, keep on drinking your
coffee or chewing your
sandwich. No need to
frantically search for
that sample ballot and
voter guide. Don’t
waste precious time
firing up the Internet
in a desperate hope for
quick information. No
worries if that glut of
unread political mail-
ers is buried under a
pile of sticky bottles
and wadded newspaper
in the recycling bin.
Election Day, espe-
cially only hours
before the polls close,
is a less than opportune time to make up for months of
apathy. This is not democracy speed dating.
Even if you are already standing in line at the polls
while reading this, with nothing but the editorial
endorsement list to guide your pending choices, go
home. Of course, the Daily Journal in its wise counsel
offers the two cents it thinks the educated voter should
consider, but that one perspective is meant to be a tool
in the box and not the entire set.
Besides, you’re probably only at the polling loca-
tion to nab a snazzy, patriotically-hued “I voted”
sticker which reminds coworkers and others throughout
the day that you are politically aware if not necessarily
politically savvy. You also get to feel superior to
those who, as previously mentioned, missed out on the
fact that today is the primary election. If this is the
case, get out of line and come on over. I’ll give you a
sticker. Or, at least a Post-It with a badly drawn flag.
I’m tired of imploring the masses to vote. One can
only shake the trees hard for so long before growing
weary of not having any fruit to show for the effort.
Maybe the voting advocates have been wrong, seeing
the privilege through misguided rose-colored glasses.
The goal needs to be not just getting voters to turn out
but have them turn out quasi-literate about what is
being asked on the ballot.
We should demand these choices not be made by
legions of followers with no personal opinions who
simply follow the directives of others or those who
prefer the ol’ eeny-meeny-miney-moes method of
choice. This isn’t a standardized test where options
“B” or “C” are pretty good guesses. There is no partial
credit. Voting is an all or nothing proposition.
Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe there are one or two or 10
or 300 people who can cram months of political infor-
mation into their brains and process it into a thought-
ful decision, zooming from zero to 60 on the good citi-
zen scale.
Heading into today, the talking heads all warn that
voter turnout may be at a historical low. They cite the
June primary date, the lack of a presidential race, con-
fusion on the new California top-two primary process.
Locally, a number of county races are uncontested
and only the voters in the two supervisorial districts
up for grabs have a say in those seats which may keep
residents of the other districts unmotivated.
So don’t worry about it if you stay home. Chances
are, you’ll be in good company. Just remember that by
abdicating your opportunity at the ballot box today
you are also rejecting any right to the public soapbox

NEWYORK — Stocks closed mostly
higher on a quiet Monday following
two reports that showed the manufac-
turing industries of the world’s two
largest economies expanded last
Both the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age and the Standard & Poor’s 500
index were able to set record highs for
a second trading day in a row.
The Dow rose 26.46 points, or 0.2
percent, to 16,743.63. The S&P 500
rose 1.40 points, or 0.1 percent, to
1,924.97 and the Nasdaq composite
fell 5.42 points, or 0.1 percent, to
The Institute for Supply manage-
ment said U.S. manufacturing grew at a
brisk pace last month, correcting its
earlier statement that growth had
slowed. The ISM said the correct num-
ber for its manufacturing index was
55.4 in May, in line with what econo-
mists were expecting. That’s a better
result than the 53.2 figure that ISM ini-
tially reported.
The ISM manufacturing report is one
of two closely watched reports each
month, second only to the govern-
ment’s monthly survey of the job mar-
ket. To see major revisions to such a
report the day it’s released was highly
unusual, traders said, especially for a
report that is so relied on each month.
“It’s a debacle, as far as ISM is con-
cerned,” said Tom di Galoma, head of
fixed income rates at ED&F Man
Capital. “It’s hurt their credibility and
it’s going to take a while for that to
recover. ”
Investors also got some positive
manufacturing news out of Asia. A
Chinese manufacturing index edged up
to 50.8 in May from 50.4 in April.
Asian stocks rose on the report.
Japan’s Nikkei rose 2.1 percent
Trading is expected to be quiet until
later this week. Investors will get the
May jobs report Friday, and the
European Central Bank will announce
its latest interest rate policy decision
Economists expect that companies
hired 220,000 workers last month, and
that the unemployment rate remained
steady at 6.3 percent, according to
Other than the manufacturing
reports, traders had little news to work
with on Monday.
The real-estate investment trust
Ventas said it would buy American
Realty Capital Healthcare Trust in a
$2.6 billion cash-and-stock deal. The
companies each own medical care
offices along with other properties.
A.R.C.’s stock rose 96 cents, or 10
percent, to $10.91 while Ventas fell
$1.87, or 3 percent, to $64.93.
Semiconductor maker Broadcom was
the biggest advancer in the S&P 500,
jumping $2.97, or 9 percent, to
$34. 84. The company said it is
exploring options for its cellular chip
business, which could include selling
the division or shutting it down.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note rose to 2.53 percent from 2.48
percent on Friday. Even with the mod-
est increase, bond yields are still trad-
ing near their lows for the year. Bond
investors expect yields to remain at
these levels for the foreseeable future.
“You’re still looking at a global eco-
nomic picture that needs a lot more
growth,” said Robert Tipp, chief
investment strategist for Prudential
Fixed Income.

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple is expanding
into home and health management as the
company tries to turn its iPhones, iPads and
Mac computers into an interchangeable net-
work of devices that serve as a hub of peo-
ple’s increasingly digital lives.
The new tools for tracking health and con-
trolling household appliances are part of
updated operating systems that Apple
unveiled Monday in San Francisco at its 25th
annual conference for application develop-
The revised software for Apple Inc.’s
devices won’t be released to the general pub-
lic until this fall when the company is also
expected to start selling the next generation
of iPhones and iPads. A spruced-up line of
Macs also could be coming before the holi-
day shopping season.
The lack of a flashy new gadget may dis-
appoint some Apple fans who are still
looking for proof that the company hasn’t
lost its ingenuity since Steve Jobs died in
October 2011. Since then, Apple has
mostly been making incremental
improvements to the devices and software
hatched under Jobs’ leadership.
While those updates have been enough to
maintain Apple’s status as the world’s most
valuable company, they haven’t quieted per-
sisting questions about the company’s future
prospects amid intensifying competition
from other device makers.
Apple CEO Tim Cook, Job’s hand-picked
successor, turned Monday’s spotlight over to
one of his chief lieutenants — Craig
Federighi — to discuss the company’s
upcoming software changes. The new ver-
sions, which will be free, are called iOS 8 for
mobile devices and “Yosemite” for Macs.
The iOS 8 operating system includes
“HealthKit” and “HomeKit” options that may
test how just how much Apple customers trust
the Cupertino, California company to main-
tain their privacy.
HealthKit works with a new built-in app on
the iOS 8 that will store a variety of informa-
tion about people’s vital signs, fitness levels
and diet. Other third-party apps will be able
to access the data with a user’s permission.
HomeKit is aiming to set up a system that
lets an iPhone or iPad serve as the remote
control of an entire household equipped with
an assortment of digital appliances with
wireless connections.

Allergan-Valeant dispute
NEW YORK — Activist investor Bill
Ackman says he will move to replace most
of the board of directors of Allergan as part
of a continuing battle for control of the
Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital
Management and Canadian drugmaker
Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc.
want to buy Allergan, but the company has
rejected their offers. Ackman says he wants
to call a special shareholder meeting and
will move to replace most of Allergan’s
board members.
Ackman says the meeting could happen
between early August and late November.
Botox-maker Allergan Inc. is urgi ng
shareholders to hold off taking action on
Ackman’s proposal while the company’s
board weighs the latest buyout proposal.

WASHINGTON — It will soon get a lot
harder to use overseas accounts to hide
income and assets from the Internal Revenue
More than 77,000 foreign banks, invest-
ment funds and other financial institutions
have agreed to share information about U.S.
account holders with the IRS as part of a
crackdown on offshore tax evasion, the
Treasury Department announced Monday.
The list includes 515 Russian financial
institutions. Russian banks had to apply
directly to the IRS because the U.S. broke off
negotiations with the Russian government
over an information-sharing agreement
because of Russia’s actions in Ukraine.
Nearly 70 countries have agreed to share
information from their banks as part of a U.S.
law that targets Americans hiding assets over-
seas. Participating countries include the
world’s financial giants, as well as many
places where Americans have traditionally
hid assets, including Switzerland, the
Cayman Islands and the Bahamas.
Starting in March 2015, these financial
institutions have agreed to supply the IRS
with names, account numbers and balances
for accounts controlled by U.S. taxpayers.
Under the law, foreign banks that don’t
agree to share information with the IRS face
steep penalties when doing business in the
U.S. The law requires American banks to with-
hold 30 percent of certain payments to for-
eign banks that don’t participate in the pro-
gram - a significant price for access to the
world’s largest economy.
The 2010 law is known as FATCA, which
stands for the Foreign Account Tax
Compliance Act. It was designed to encourage
- some say force - foreign financial institu-
tions to share information about U.S. account
holders with the IRS, making it more difficult
for Americans to use overseas accounts to
evade U.S. taxes.
“The strong international support for
FATCA is clear, and this success will help us
in our goal of stopping tax evasion and nar-
rowing the tax gap,” said Robert Stack,
deputy assistant treasury secretary for inter-
national tax affairs.
Under the law, U.S. banks that fail to with-
hold the tax would be liable for it them-
selves, a powerful incentive to comply. U.S.
banks are scheduled to start withholding 30
percent of interest and dividend payments in
July, though recent guidance from the
Treasury Department gives U.S. banks some
leeway on timing as they gear up their sys-
The withholding applies to stocks and
bonds, including U.S. Treasurys. Some previ-
ously owned securities would be exempt from
the withholding, but in general, previously
owned stocks would not.
Private investors who use foreign financial
institutions to facilitate trades also face the
withholding penalty. Those private investors
could later apply to the IRS for refunds, but
the inconvenience would be enormous.

ALAMEDA — Even at age 37, Charles
Woodson is feeling a bit younger in his sec-
ond season back with the Oakland Raiders.
That’s what bringing in so many other
veterans who have Super Bowl experience
like Woodson can do.
Woodson is part of a rebuilt defense in
Oakland that includes newcomers like
Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley, Antonio
Smith, Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown,
who all know what it takes to succeed in
the NFL.
“I feel like I’m getting
younger out there any-
way. I feel good,”
Woodson said. “Bringing
in those guys brings in
credibility. I look forward
to playing with those
guys this season.”
The injection of veter-
an leadership on a
defense that allowed the
second-most points per game (28.3) in fran-
chise history in 2013 was part of a plan to
end a run of 11 straight seasons without a
playoff berth or winning record that started
in Woodson’s first stint in Oakland.
Woodson said he has already seen the
impact of the newcomers in improved com-
munication and understanding of the
defense during offseason workouts.
Adding veteran quarterback Matt Schaub
to an improved defense gives the Raiders
the tools they feel like they need to com-
pete in the tough AFC West despite the low
expectations outsiders have for the fran-
“We’re trying to bust through the ceiling.
I look at the team and I feel like I have what
I need from a team standpoint to get all the
way there,” Woodson said. “Now, does that
happen? Nobody knows until that time
comes, but we’ve got players in there. If we
all focus in, all our goals at the end of the
season will be there.”
The Raiders brought in most of those
newcomers on defense before making the
decision to bring back Woodson on another
one-year deal. Woodson didn’t talk to other
teams in the hope of returning to Oakland
Woodson excited about Raiders’ veterans
Terra Nova junior Jeremy Wright took first place in the 400-meter dash at last Friday’s Central
Coast Sectional finals.With a time of 47.01,Wright cracked the state’s all-time top 50 in the event.
By Terry Bernal
For a lifer on the track, Terra Nova’s
Jeremy Wright is just hitting his stride.
Or is he?
Last Friday at the Central Coast Section
track and field finals at San Jose City
College, Wright topped the podium in the
400-meter dash with a time of 47.01 sec-
onds. Not only is it the second best time in
California this season — Cameron Stone of
Sheldon High School has a slight edge with
a 46.99 — Wright set a personal record and
also cracked the all-time California top 50
with the dynamic CCS performance.
Because of this exceptional accomplish-
ment, Wright has been named the San Mateo
Daily Journal Athlete of the Week.
It may seem Wright is really hitting his
stride this season. According to the junior
sprinter, however, the best is yet to come.
“My coaches and I would all expect me to
continue improving and be hitting 46s, and
maybe even a 45 by the end of next season,”
Wright said. “Coming into this season … I
set a goal for myself to run a sub-47. And I’m
basically on the threshold of that at the end
of this season. So, if I continue to improve
and continue to grow like I have been, I feel
like that’s definitely in reach.”
Wright has one more meet remaining this
season, when the state’s best track and field
competitors travel to Clovis for Friday’s
state finals. In tabbing a 400-meter time
under 48 seconds at the CCS finals, Wright
qualified for nationals. Because Terra Nova
head coach Michelle Bokamper is taking a
step-by-step approach with the potential
track star, though, and because it’s a fairly
pricey excursion, Wright will bypass the
trip to North Carolina this season.
“As a coach, you don’t have a lot of ath-
letes that will come your way that are talent-
ed,” Bokamper said. “In a coaching career,
some people only see this once where they
have an athlete is a state contender multiple
years in a row in tack and field. So, from that
standpoint it’s really cool. And then from
another standpoint, for Jeremy going into
next year, my goal would be for him to com-
pete at the national level — to try and go to
Wright’s 400 the best in CCS

As unbelievable as it may sound, the
2013-14 high school sports season is all
but over, with only the state track meet
left to be contested. So, as is my custom,
now is the time when I look back and pick
the best of the best of spring.
Best basebal l game: Aragon-
Menlo-Athert on, PAL tournament.
This was a no-brainer. This second-
round game had a little bit of everything
over 9 2/3 innings of play. The biggest
play was Lawson Joos’ two-run squeeze
bunt that gave the Bears a 6-5 win in the
bottom of the 10th inning, but there was
plenty of other
excitement through-
out. There was
Aragon starting
pitcher Chad
Franquez picking off
four runners, M-A’s
Erik Amundson com-
ing up with three hits
and two walks in six
plate appearances,
Aragon’s Brendan
Donnelly reaching
base in all four of his
plate appearances,
with three singles, a walk and two runs
batted in. He also made a game-saving
catch in the right-center field gap in the
bottom of the seventh to send the game
into extra innings.
All in all, one of most exciting games
I’ve seen in years.
Best softbal l game: Capuchi no-
Hal f Moon Bay regul ar- s e as on
final e.
These teams came into the final game of
the Bay Division in a three-way tie for
second place in the standings, along with
Hillsdale. The winner would assure itself a
spot in the Central Coast Section play-
offs, while the loser would be left apply-
ing for an at-large berth.

PARIS — Maybe, just maybe, Rafael
Nadal was a tad vulnerable, the thinking
went before this French Open.
He had lost three times on his beloved red
clay already this year, more defeats than he
ever had on the surface before heading to
Roland Garros.
Then came an admission, after the Grand
Slam tournament’s third round, that his
back was bothering him
and slowing his serves.
Well, leave it to the
eight-time French Open
champion’s upcoming
quarterfinal opponent —
2013 runner-up David
Ferrer, one of the men
who beat Nadal on clay
this spring — to set the
record straight.
“Rafael,” Ferrer said, “is always the
Nadal certainly looked the part in the
fourth round Monday, when he won 18
points in a row during one stretch en
route to beating 83rd-ranked Dusan
Lajovic of Serbia 6-1, 6-2, 6-1 for a
record 32nd consecutive victory at the
French Open. That broke Nadal’s own
mark of 31 and moved him a step closer to
a fifth straight title in Paris.
The No. 1-ranked Nadal, now 63-1 for his
career at the tournament, has won all 12 sets
he’s played in Paris in 2014, dropping a
total of 23 games. He was asked whether he
would have preferred a more taxing
encounter by now.
“You never know what’s better,” replied
Nadal, whose audience at Court Philippe
Chatrier included musician Prince. “But, in
theory, the theory says that it’s better (to)
win like this than win longer matches.”
And his back? The one that flummoxed
him during a loss in the Australian Open
final in January, and then acted up Saturday,
leading to an average first serve of 102 mph

Maddy Price, Menlo School track
Price lived up to expectations at the CCS
track and field championships, winning
titles in the 200 and 400 sprints. She won
the 200 in a time of 23.98, nearly a half sec-
ond faster than the second-place finisher. She
dominated the field in her speciality, the 400,
posting a time of 55.34, nearly a second
faster than the second-place time or 56.22
Kyle Orloff, Serra track
Orloff won a pair of individual silvers and
then teamed with three other teammates to
capture the title in the 4x400 relay at the
CCS championships. Orloff was second in
the 200 a time of 21.87. He also took sec-
ond in the 400, with a time of 47.52. In the
relay, Orloff, running the anchor leg,
teamed with Marcus Alvarez, Jeremiah
Testa, Armon Plummer to win the race by
nearly a second with a time of 3:21.55.
Bailey Nestor, Hillsdale softball
Nestor had two of the Knights’ four hits –
including a double – during Hillsdale’s 5-0
loss to Pioneer in the semifinals of the CCS
Division II tournament.
Graham Stratford, Menlo baseball
In last Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to Branham in
the Central Coast Section Division II semi-
final, the senior was a perfect 3 for 3 at the
plate. His first-inning line-drive single to
center sparked the only run-scoring rally for
Menlo. With his three-hit showing,
Stratford totaled 37 hits on the season,
moving into a tie for the team lead with
sophomore Jared Lucian.
Candy Zhang, Aragon badminton
Zhang won her third straight Central
Coast Section singles’ championship, win-
ning all four of her matches in straight sets.
Kelsey Ching, Carlmont softball
The Scots had three sacrifice bunts in
Saturday’s Central Coast Section champi-
onship-game win over San Benito. All three
led to run-scoring rallies. Ching had two of
them — in the fourth and sixth innings —
each setting the stage for two-run rallies.
The sophomore also tabbed Carlmont’s first
hit of the game with a bases-loaded single
in the second that resulted in three runs
when the ball was misplayed by the San
Benito outfield. Ching finished the CCS
championship season ranking second on
the team in batting average (.425), slug-
ging percentage (.700) and OPS (1.179).
She also recorded the final assist of of the
season, fielding a short chopper off the bat
of San Benito’s Maddy Gutierrez-Urban and
firing to first base to set off the Scots’
eighth CCS title celebration.
Rebecca Faulkner, Carlmont softball
Carlmont’s senior left-hander was sensa-
tional in Saturday’s Central Coast Section
Divisiion II championship win. She set
own the first 11 San Benito batters in
order and retired the first 20 of 21.
Through seven innings pitched, Faulkner
allowed one run on three hits while strik-
ing out seven with nothing wild. She also
went 2 for 4 at the plate with two RBIs,
including one of the loudest hits of the day
with a scorched RBI triple in the sixth
inning to cap the day’s scoring.

Wright has made great strides since
debuting in the varsity ranks last season.
He owns one of the most impressive
statures in the Peninsula Athletic League at
6-4, 195-pound. And after topping out at
49 seconds as a sophomore, he shaved two
seconds off his personal record in one
year’s time.
In fact, he improved it by .6 seconds in
just a matter of weeks. At the PAL
Championship held May 17 on his home
field of Terra Nova, Wright notched a per-
sonal record of 47.61 in the 400-meter.
Then at the CCS trials on May 24, Wright
ran an unofficial time of 47.2 in the final
leg of the 4x400 meter relay.
Terra Nova’s 4x400 meter relay team didn’t
qualify for CCS finals, but Wright qualified
individually in two events: the 200-meter
and the 400-meter. He took fifth place at
finals in the 200-meter with a time of 21.83.
It was the 400-meter in which Wright
shined though. In the middle lanes, he
locked up with Serra’s Kyle Orloff and Palo
Alto’s Nick Sullivan, both of whom are
seniors. In the trials, the three finished
within .2 seconds of each other, with
Wright barely holding on for the win.
Running out of the fourth lane in
Friday’s CCS finals, Wright battled Orloff
neck-and-neck through the first 300
meters. As they rounded the final turn,
however, Wright exploded into the
straightaway to take down his opponent.
Orloff took second place with a 47.52,
trailing Wright by over half a second.
Sullivan took third place with a 48.82.
“I was really happy with my time,”
Wright said. “I was a little nervous going
in because I know we all qualified really
close together, but I think I knew I had a
little bit of something extra in terms of
really turning over and finishing the race.”
Wright has been running for as long as
he can remember. And he learned when he
was quite young he could outrun anyone on
the playground.
“On the playground, you play tag and
stuff, and no one would want to play with
me because I was too fast to play with,”
Wright said.
By the time he was in second grade, the
Pacifica native was already running in
track meets. But throughout most his life
he had focused solely on sprinting. Prior
to this season, however, Wright underwent
a new regiment of distance running.
Throughout December and January, he com-
mitted to a daily cross-country training
schedule of no less than three miles and no
more than eight, Wright said.
“I thought I needed the extra training in
order to get where I wanted to be, and my
coaches basically facilitated the idea and
encouraged me to come out for off-season
track,” Wright said.
Yet, Bokamper and assistant coach John
McMullen remain focused on reining in
Wright’s mechanics. With such a tall
frame, it has taken some work. At present
though, Bokamper said she is more mind-
ful of Wright’s pacing.
“One of the things that I was telling
him, when you start getting up there in
the heavier competition, is to get out
more aggressively,” Bokamper said. “You
can’t always come from behind and
expect to win. So, we were playing with
the fact of getting out more aggressively
and then holding on towards the end, then
just think about form. … Wi t h hi m,
because he is really tall, you can see his
form is really good.”
And while the best is no doubt yet to
come for Wright, he’s already reaping the
rewards of loving what he does.
“I feel myself being able to push myself
faster as the race continues,” Wright said. “At
the end of the race, you just feel like you’ve
gone faster and you can put yourself at a
point where you can still go even faster.”
It’s going to take all he has to realize his
goal of running a 400-meter in under 46 sec-
onds as a senior though. Only nine boys in
history have ever cracked the 45-second
threshold in the event. Henry Thomas of
Hawthorne Secondary School set the all-
time mark in 1985 with a time of 45.09.

OMAHA, Neb. — College of Charleston,
Kennesaw State and Pepperdine are heading
to super regionals in the NCAA baseball
tournament after surprising opening-week-
end victories.
The College of Charleston Cougars
became the fourth No. 4 regional seed to
reach super regionals since the tournament
went to its current format in 1999.
Pepperdine and Kennesaw State were seeded
third in their regions, as was Stanford,
which upset host Indiana in Bloomington.
Of the eight national seeds, No. 3
Virginia, No. 6 Louisiana-Lafayette and No.
7 TCU won regionals. No. 1 Oregon State
played UC Irvine late Monday.
National seeds are assured of home field
for super regionals. Maryland plays at
Virginia, Mississippi at Louisiana-
Lafayette and Pepperdine at TCU.
The other matchups, whose sites will be
announced Tuesday, are: College of
Charleston vs. Texas Tech; Kennesaw State
vs. Louisville; Texas vs. Houston; Stanford
vs. Vanderbilt; and Oklahoma State vs.
Oregon State or UC Irvine.
Winners in the best-of-three series move
on to the College World Series in Omaha,
The last two No. 4 regional seeds to get
past the first weekend of the tournament
made it all the way to the CWS. Fresno State
went on to win the national championship
in 2008, and Stony Brook captured the
imagination of the nation in 2012 when the
Seawolves reached the CWS.
College of Charleston has played in a
super regional before, losing at Georgia
Tech in 2006 as a No. 2 regional seed. The
Cougars earned an NCAA tournament bid
this year by winning the Colonial Athletic
Association. They beat No. 2 national seed
Florida on its home field Friday and defeated
Long Beach State on Saturday and again
“They are a special team to coach and they
have been having so much fun the last cou-
ple weeks,” Cougars coach Monte Lee said.
“I’m humbled to get to coach this incredible
group and excited that we get to keep play-
ing baseball.”

Rogers just keeps on rolling.
Florida’s senior standout threw a
four-hitter to help Florida defeat
Alabama 5-0 in Game 1 of the
best-of-three national champi-
onship series Monday night. The
Gators (54-12) now are just one
win from their first national title
after runner-up finishes in 2009
and 2011. Game 2 will be played
Tuesday night.
Rogers took a one-hitter into
the bottom of the seventh in the
matchup of Southeastern
Conference rivals. She had a per-
fect game through four innings.
“I wasn’t really aware of it,” she
said of the perfect start. “I just
kept using my defense, and I try
not to look up at the scoreboard
too much unless I’m looking at
the count.”
Rogers has held opponents
scoreless in 46 of her past 47
“I think Hannah was terrific
tonight,” Alabama coach Patrick
Murphy said. “I think it’s one of
the best games she’s played
against us. It was just a continua-
tion of her postseason.”
Florida coach Tim Walton was
fairly calm about the first cham-
pionship series win in school
“You can tell by my voice that
I’m not really very excited yet
because there’s really nothing to
get excited about,” he said. “We’ve
won one game. It’s a race to two in
this series. We get that ‘W’ tomor-
row, you’ll hear a different voice.”
Jackie Traina got the loss for
Alabama (53-12). She gave up five
runs in 6 1-3 innings after having
allowed just one earned run in her
first three games during the World
The Crimson Tide hadn’t been
shut out since Feb. 16, but they
couldn’t string anything together
against Rogers, who was hitting
her spots.
“We just didn’t continue an
inning,” Murphy said. “That’s not
like us.”
Alabama lost the first game of
the championship series two years
ago against Oklahoma, then won
the next two to win the title. The
Crimson Tide seemed relaxed after
the loss and were looking forward
to Tuesday’s game.
“It’s not a real big deal to us,”
Murphy said.
Aubree Munro got the Gators
going with a solo homer to left-
center in the third inning. It was
her third of the season.
“Getting that first hit is a key to
a lot of games,” Walton said. “I
know most people think that it
sounds easy, but getting that hit
and not getting no-hit is awe-
some. Breaking up the no-hitter,
the shutout and the all the other
stuff with it is huge.”
In the top of the fifth, Florida
got it going with two outs. Leadoff
hitter Kelsey Stewart had a bunt
single, then Kirsti Merritt doubled
to left center to score Stewart.
Stephanie Tofft singled to score
Merritt and push Florida’s lead to
Alabama’s Kaila Hunt broke up
Rogers’ perfect game with a single
in the bottom of the fifth, but the
Crimson Tide couldn’t score after
getting a runner to second.
Florida got two insurance runs
in the top of the seventh. Asacri-
fice fly by Tofft scored Stewart,
then Lauren Haeger’s RBI double
scored Merritt.
Alabama got three hits in the
bottom of the seventh inning
against Rogers, giving the
Crimson Tide hope that Tuesday
will be different.
“I think we finished the game
fairly strong,” Alabama’s Haylie
McCleney said. “I know we didn’t
score any runs, but we did get to
her. We proved that we can hit her.
She didn’t no-hit us, she didn’t
one-hit us. I think going into
tomorrow, that’s something that
we’re all going to look at, kind of
visualize that seventh inning. We
know that we can get to her, we’ve
just got to do it earlier tomorrow. ”

The Stanley Cup finals will be a coast-to-
coast matchup featuring teams within the
nation’s largest TV markets: New York and
Los Angeles.
It looks like a win-win deal for the NHL.
The Rangers will draw a lot of viewers
tuning in to see if they can win a champi-
onship for the first time in two decades. The
Kings, meanwhile, have a shot to win it all
for the second time in three seasons in what
would be an impressive feat because of the
league’s salary cap.
Here are 10 things to watch when the puck
drops Wednesday night in Los Angeles:
Motivated Marian: The Rangers traded
Marian Gaborik 14 months ago to Columbus
and now, they’ve got to face him as he’s peak-
ing. Gaborik has an NHL-high 12 goals this
postseason and he ranks fourth with 19 points.
He had the tying goal midway through the third
period of Game 7 at Chicago, where the Kings
won in overtime.
Thanks CBJ part II: Gaborik is not the
only former Blue Jackets player in the series.
Columbus traded Jeff Carter to the Kings two
years ago. The Blue Jackets sent Rick Nash to
New York in the summer of 2012. And they dealt
Derick Brassard, John Moore and Derek Dorsett
to the Rangers last year.
Quick turnaround: Even though the
Rangers have to hit the road to begin the series,
they should be the fresher team. New York elim-
inated Montreal last Thursday, giving it almost
a full week off before Game 1. The Kings, mean-
while, played late Sunday night in Chicago for
their third Game 7 this postseason, traveled
home and may not have much time to rest before
the puck drops.
Call it a comeback: The Kings might be
the toughest team to knock out in sports.
They’re the only NHL team to win three Game
7s on the road in one postseason; the second
to be 7-0 when facing elimination in one post-
season; the fourth to rally from a 3-0 deficit in
a seven-game series; and they didn’t have the
lead against Chicago in their latest decisive
game until winning in overtime.
are 10-0 in the postseason when leading after
two periods.
Lucky number 7 s: The Kings trio of
Gaborik, Mike Richards and Justin Williams is
7-0 in Game 7s and goalie Jonathan Quick is 4-
0 in decisive games. Williams has seven goals
and seven assists in Game 7s, passing Doug
Gilmour’s NHL record for points and tying
Glen Anderson for the most goals in league
history in Game 7s. Los Angeles coach Darryl
Sutter has surged past Scotty Bowman and Pat
Burns for the most Game 7 victories — seven,
naturally — in his career. If Sutter steers Los
Angeles into another Game 7, it will be his
11th behind a bench to break a record shared by
Mike Keenan and Claude Julien.
Up the middle: The Kings appear to have a
clear advantage at center. They’ve won 53 per-
cent of faceoffs in the playoffs, trailing only
Boston statistically, while the Rangers rank
12th out of the 16 playoff teams. Los Angeles
has a pair of great centers, Anze Kopitar, and
Carter, and two solid ones, Jarret Stoll and
Mike Richards. The Rangers, meanwhile, don’t
appear to match up quite as well at the pivotal
position with Derek Stepan, Brad Richards,
Derick Brassard and Dominic Moore.
Two-way blue liners: Los Angeles and
New York each have a playmaking defense-
man. Drew Doughty has four goals, 12 assists
and as many points (16) as he had in the 2012
playoffs when he helped the Kings hoist the
Cup. Ryan McDonagh leads the Rangers with
10 assists and he’s tied for the team lead with
13 points.
In the net: Quick and Henrik Lundqvist are
not among the three finalists for the Vezina
Trophy, but Quick won the Conn Smythe
Trophy as the MVP of the playoffs in 2012
when Los Angeles won its first Stanley Cup
and Lundqvist was voted the league’s best goal-
tender that same year. Quick is giving up 2.86
goals a game this postseason and that’s at least
one more goal than he gave up on average in
the previous two postseasons. Lundqvist is
allowing just two goals a game and he blanked
Montreal in Game 6 for his ninth career
shutout in the playoffs.
Last, not l east: Both teams roll four
lines of forwards and when their final trio is
on the ice it is not necessarily a break for
the other team. Sutter does not label his
lines, but Richards appears to his fourth-
line center and Trevor Lewis and Kyle
Clifford are usually on his wings. Richards
ranked fourth on the team in points during
the regular season and has chipped in with
eight points in the playoffs. Moore centers
New York’s fourth line with Brian Boyle
and Derek Dorsett. Moore scored the only
goal in Game 6 to eliminate the Canadiens
and has three goals in the playoffs after
scoring just six times in the regular season.
10 things to watch in Stanley Cup finals
but acknowledged he wasn’t sure it would
actually happen.
“I wanted to get something done right
away,” he said. “Every team has priorities
and I respect what they did in the offseason
and the moves they made prior to me sign-
ing again. I was getting a little bit nervous
sitting at home trying to figure out what was
going to happen. The reality was if it didn’t
happen here that could have been it.”
Woodson had mixed results in his first
season back in Oakland after spending the
previous seven seasons in Green Bay. He
started all 16 games at free safety and
almost never came off the field, but the
Raiders stumbled to their second straight
4-12 record.
Woodson had 75 solo tackles, one inter-
ception, two sacks, three passes defensed,
three forced fumbles and two fumble recover-
ies. He returned one fumble for his 13th
career defensive touchdown, tying the NFL
record held by Darren Sharper and Rod
But he spent most of the season lined up
as a deep safety instead of roaming the field
in different roles like he did in Green Bay.
Part of that was because strong safety Tyvon
Branch broke his ankle in the second week
of the season and did not return.
“Any time you lose a player of Tyvon’s
ability, it does hinder you in terms of what
you can do,” coach Dennis Allen said.
“We’re excited about having Wood back. I
think he brings a lot back to the table.
We’ve got a better feel for him, what he can
really do well, and how we can put him in
positions to make plays.”

PARIS — Andy Murray was playing so
well, he could even afford to give a point
The Wimbledon champion put himself in
the middle of an argument between Fernando
Verdasco and chair umpire Pascal Maria in
the third set of his fourth-round match at the
French Open on Monday. But in an effort to
de-escalate the budding fracas, he conceded a
point to the Spaniard.
It didn’t really matter, because the sev-
enth-seeded Murray still won in straight
sets, beating Verdasco 6-4, 7-5, 7-6 (3) to
reach the quarterfinals at Roland Garros for
the fourth time.
“Yeah, I gave him the point,” said Murray,
who missed the French Open last year
because of a back injury.
The incident started at
the end of the seventh
game in the third set.
Verdasco was broken
quickly in the first game,
but then saved 11 break
points in his next three
service games and held to
get within 4-3 with a
service winner that
smacked off the rim of
Murray’s racket.
As Verdasco walked to his changeover
bench, Maria ordered the serve to be retaken
because a linesman had called the ball out
before Murray made contact. Verdasco, then
sitting in his chair, started ranting at Maria,
shouting, “Are you kidding me?”
He then called for the supervisor four
times, telling Maria he no longer wanted to
speak to him.
That’s when Murray stepped in and gave
the game to his opponent.
“I was just fighting for the ball because I
just thought that once I served to the line
and Andy returned with the frame to the
crowd, Pascal was saying that the lineman
was calling out,” Verdasco said. “I said ... he
didn’t miss the serve because the lineman
call out. He missed the serve because, the
return, because my serve was to the line and
he couldn’t hit it with the strings.
“So it was completely out of sense to
serve a first serve again. I said to call the
supervisor, and Andy said that it was fine,
and it was a point for me.”
The rule in tennis is that if a linesman
incorrectly calls the ball out before a player
makes contact, then the serve should be
taken over. That’s what Maria had ordered.
“It’s a very gray area. Because the call
came before I made contact with the ball,”
Murray said. “If the call comes before you
make contact with the ball, then it’s a let.
“I mean, it was a great serve and I mis-hit
the ball. It didn’t go in.”
Murray was still up a break at the time he
conceded the point. Six points later, they
were back on serve. And it stayed that way
until the tiebreaker, when Murray won the
first three points, lost the next three and
then won the final four.
Murray, who last year became the first
British man to win the Wimbledon title
since 1936, will next face Gael Monfils of
France, a longtime friend since their time
together as juniors.
“I’m sure there will be some fun rallies.
There always is when I have played against
him,” Murray said. “We haven’t played
against each other for quite a while, so I’m
looking forward to it.”
Murray advances to quarterfinals at French Open
Andy Murray
(165 kph) and top speed of 114 mph (184
kph)? It didn’t appear to be as much of an
issue against Lajovic: Nadal averaged
107 mph (173 kph), with a high of 119
mph (192 kph).
“My back can be pretty unpredictable,”
said Nadal, who wore thick vertical strips
of athletic tape under his shirt. “I’m not
lying. It’s totally unpredictable. I don’t
want to speak too much about it.”
OK, then.
Now he takes on No. 5 Ferrer, who
eliminated No. 19 Kevin Anderson of
South Africa 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-1.
Last year’s French Open final is one of
21 losses for Ferrer in 27 matches against
fellow Spaniard Nadal. But Ferrer won
their most recent meeting in straight sets,
on April 18 at the Monte Carlo Masters.
As Ferrer himself noted, though, that
was a best-of-three-set match. They’ll be
playing best-of-five on Wednesday.
“Tactically, I will have to be perfect,”
Ferrer said. “I hope that I will instill
some doubts in Rafa’s mind, but if we
play at our best level, both of us, he will
be a better player.”
Two women’s quarterfinals will be No.
4 Simona Halep of Romania vs. 2009
French Open champion Svetlana
Kuznetsova of Russia, and 2012 runner-
up Sara Errani of Italy vs. No. 28 Andrea
Petkovic of Germany.
“I played aggressive,” Halep said after
defeating the last American singles play-
er left in the tournament, No. 15 Sloane
Stephens, 6-4, 6-3. “I dominated the
match, I think.”
Petkovic’s 1-6, 6-2, 7-5 victory over
148th-ranked Kiki Bertens of the
Nertherlands was the only three-setter for
women on Monday, a two-hour struggle
filled with 77 unforced errors and 14 serv-
ice breaks.
Afterward, the well-read Petkovic con-
ducted that rare sports-event news confer-
ence sprinkled with references to
Nietzsche, Sartre and Camus.
During an earlier on-court interview,

the match around was less, well, worldly:

take a 2-0 lead, it appeared they were
poised to grab an automatic berth
into the playoffs.
That was before the Cougars
scored three runs in the bottom of
the sixth to pull out a 3-2 win. And
Half Moon Bay did it with two outs
and the only reason the Cougars
pulled it out was because Amy
Francis’ fly ball into left-field foul
territory was dropped.
But first, an error by Capuchino
enabled Kallista Leonardos to score
the Cougars’ first run of the inning.
With runners on second and third,
Francis came to the plate and lofted
an 0-1 pitch into foul territory in
left field. The Capuchino left fielder
got to the ball — but dropped it.
Two pitches later, Francis dropped a
ball in front of the left fielder to
drive in both Ally Sarabia and Olivia
Hedding with what turned out to be
the winning run.
Although the Mustangs lost, they
still qualified for the CCS playoffs,
bowing out in the second round
against Mitty. Half Moon Bay
advanced to the Division III semifi-
nals before losing to Santa Catalina.

formance: Ally Howe, Sacred

In the WBALfinals, she set WBAL
and school records in the 500 free

At CCS, she was part of the 200
medley relay team that a set a new
CCS record. Individually, she set
records in the 200 individual medley
and the 100 back. She then capped
her meet by swimming a leg on the
Gators’400 free relay-winning squad.

Cambron opened the season with
a seven-inning, 130-plus-pitch out-
ing against Carlmont and never
slowed down. The senior ended the
year with an 11-2 record with one
no-decision, with nine consecutive
complete games — 11 overall — and
a 1.19 ERA. Opponents batted just
.217 against Cambron this season.
Best gi rl s’ team: Carlmont

It almost goes without saying as
the Scots captured the CCS Division
I championship over the weekend.
But that doesn’t begin to tell the
story of the Scots’ dominance this
season. Carlmont went 14-0 in PAL
Bay Division play, allowing just 12
runs and shutting out PAL oppo-
nents six times and winning by 10-
run mercy rule seven times. Despite
struggling a bit to get to the CCS
championship game, the Scots were
spot-on in all facets of the game
against eight-time defending CCS
champion San Benito, posting an
8-1 win.

The Knights are so good they
oftentimes don’t get the praise they

their success. This year, Menlo won

Two more big-name soccer stars
on the international stage have
announced their intentions to join
Major League Soccer in 2015.
Former Atletico Madrid and Spain
national team star David Villa signed
with the expansion New York FC
club of MLS, which begins play in
2015. Frank Lampard, who has
spent 13 seasons with Chelsea in
England’s English Premiere League,
is also said to be leaning toward
signing with New York FC as well.
This is all fine and good the game
in the United States. You are starting
to see more and more international
players finding their way to MLS
while they still have some tread on
their tires. Lampard is 35 but is still
regarded as a top-flight player, while
Villa is only 32.
If you ask me, however, their deci-
sion to join MLS does not necessar-
ily mean much for the league, but
means a whole heck of a lot for New
York and the players themselves.
Notice whenever a big-name inter-
national player — David Beckham
or Henry Thierry — joins MLS, they
end up in the media hubs of Los
Angeles or New York? These players
are all about raising the awareness
of their brand and not so much of
trying to build the game in the U.S.
— which is always the stated goal.
MLS will never seriously be con-
sidered an option for top-flight
international players until the “less-
er” teams in the league can start
drawing them. If the Columbus
Crew, Colorado Rapids or Real Salt
Lake teams can start landing these
big-name free agents, it will mean
something. As long as these players

TRENTON, N.J.— For decades, seasonal
allergy sufferers had two therapy options to
ease the misery of hay fever. They could
swallow pills or squirt nasal sprays every
day for brief reprieves from the sneezing
and itchy eyes. Or they could get allergy
shots for years to gradually reduce their
immune system’s over-reaction.
Now patients can try another type of ther-
apy to train their immune system, new
once-a-day tablets that dissolve quickly
under the tongue and steadily raise tolerance
to grass or ragweed pollen, much like the
“It’s been several decades since the last
big breakthrough,” Cleveland Clinic aller-
gy specialist Dr. Rachel Szekely said.
The downside: The pills must be started a
few months before the grass or ragweed
pollen season. That means it’s too late for
people with grass allergies, but the time is
now for ragweed allergy sufferers.
The Food and Drug Administration in
April approved two tablets from Merck,
Grastek for grass pollen and Ragwitek for
ragweed, plus a grass pollen tablet called
Oralair from Stallergenes.
The tablets could become popular with
people who dislike pills that can make them
drowsy or don’t provide enough relief.
They’ll likely appeal even more to patients
with severe allergies who fear needles or
can’t make frequent trips to the allergist,
key reasons that only about 5 percent of
U.S. patients who would benefit from aller-
gy shots get them.
Meanwhile, new treatments for other
types of allergies, including to peanuts and
eggs, are in various stages of testing and
could turn out to be big advances.
Drugmaker Merck & Co. has a tablet for
house dust mite allergies in final patient
testing that could hit the market in two or
three years, and it’s considering other ther-
apies. France’s Stallergenes SA is testing a

Circassia Ltd. has a cat allergy treat-
ment in final testing and six others in
earlier testing.
A handful of companies also are
looking at possible new ways to
administer immunotherapy, including
drops under the tongue, capsules and
skin patches, said Fort Lauderdale,
Florida, allergist Dr. Linda Cox, former
president of the American Academy of
Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
The new tablets are not right for
everyone, particularly patients with
allergies to multiple substances,
Szekely cautioned.
That was the case with one of her
patients, 10-year-old Samantha
Marshall of Mentor, Ohio, who has
been getting allergy shots since last
“She’s not loving them,” said her
mother, Rachel, who recently asked
Szekely about switching to the tablets.
Szekely explained that shots are more
effective because Rachel is also aller-
gic to weeds and dust mites, and the
shots she receives are a customized mix
of extracts to all those substances.
The tablets are also pricey: Merck,
based in Whitehouse Station, New
Jersey, is charging about $8.25 per
daily tablet and Stallergenes about
$10. Insurers are expected to cover
most of the cost, as they usually do
with allergy shots.

The majority of the city’s revenue comes
from property and sales taxes as well as fees
for services and permits, Fil said. The city is
expected to take in about $57 million,
which includes the Belmont Protection Fire
District, and will likely spend about $61
million in this fiscal year, according to a
staff report. The proposed budget for the
next fiscal year has $70 million in revenue
and $63 million in expenses.
Changes in state laws could also have an
effect by requiring the city to pay about
$600,000 in property tax annually to
account for the new Local Control Funding
Formula for schools and the contended $1.3
million the state seeks for former redevel-
opment agency activities, according to the
One of the city’s biggest hurdles is how to
fund the nearly $100 million in mainte-
nance to the city’s streets, storm system and
parks that’s been deferred for decades, Fil
said. Outside of that amount and already
funded, is another huge drain to the tune of
$90 million, which the city will spend to
upgrade its sewer collection system. Forty-
five million dollars of that is for the drains
and pumps within city limits and the
remainder is Belmont’s portion of a $500
million sewage treatment plant rehabilita-
tion project, Fil said.
“It’s trying to come up with efforts to deal
with these backlog of issues, but as long as
they’re out there without a plan, the risk is
anytime we have a failure in the storm sys-
tem, in the streets, in buildings and our
parks, it has the potential for destabilizing
the city. Because they tend to be pretty seri-
ous by and large and they’re the sort of the
kinds of things you have to stop doing
other things to fix,” Fil said.
Reed said tackling these needs will be a
hefty undertaking and will require years of
planning to make a significant dent.
The council is contemplating the efficacy
of a ballot measure asking the public to
help support a bond geared at addressing the
needs, to which the public seems to be
amenable, said Councilman Charles Stone.
Due to the timing and legalities, the pub-
lic may not see something until November
2105 election, Fil said.
The proposed budget recommends beefing
up the city’s reserve policy from 25 percent
of operating expenditures, or three months,
to 33 percent, which equates to four
months, Fil said.
Reed said he’s in support of increasing the
reserve policy, but wants to ensure it does-
n’t detract from upcoming projects.
“I think a prudent reserve, where we have
(in the proposal) now, I think is the best
policy given recent economic events,”
Reed said. “I would like Belmont to be able
to weather the next economic downturn
without a significant reduction in services.”
Stone said he and Reed are excited about
the potential economic development down-
town and want to ensure staff has access to
the resources it needs. While Stone said he’s
not interested in necessarily hiring new
employees or contractors, he wants the
community development and legal depart-
ments to have adequate resources to enable
the city to proceed with updating the city’s
general plan, housing element and creating
the Belmont Village Zoning plan for down-
Reed and Lieberman said they want to
continue to invest in recreational ameni-
ties, including planning for Davey Glen
Park and building a restroom at Alexander
“A strong parks and rec department and
strong parks programs make a city a very
enjoyable place to live. So having good
recreation opportunities is kind of one of
the key things to improving the quality of
life to a lot of the residents,” Lieberman
Although the city still has a long list of
expenses, the recovering economy and
assistance from staff have allowed Belmont
to provide for its citizens, Fil said.
“In the past, essentially we were more in a
survival mode … we’d always plan for the
next five years but it was essentially a budg-
et-to-budget existence. But now, with this
higher level of fund balance and more sta-
bility and the fact that we’re more focused
on these long term obligations, we’ve
turned the page and we’re now in a position
to have a predictable level of service we can
provide,” Fil said. “We can weather some
storms here now. ”

budget visit www.belmont.gov.
The City Council will meet to review and

Bret Baird is pleased with the agree-
ment, especially since teachers hadn’t
received a cost-of-living adjustment or
across-the-board salary increase since
the 2007-08 school year.
“It’s been very rocky negotiations,”
he said. “So we’re happy it came to
fruition before the school year ended.”
Next, the teachers will begin negoti-
ations for the following school year.
In November 2013, teachers and
administrators reached an impasse
after they failed to come to an agree-
ment over a new contract after the
union requested a 7 percent pay
increase that could be spread out over
two years. The district countered with a
2 percent raise beginning on July 1.
The district’s offer included a one-time
payment this year equal to 1 percent of
salaries, according to the district. For
the 2013-14 school year, the district
offered a one-time 2.6 percent salary
increase. This would be comprised of a
1 percent off-schedule bonus and a
reduction of three workdays equivalent
to a 1.6 percent salary increase,
according to the district.
The new state Local Control Funding
Formula sends $2.1 billion more to
school districts that have high num-
bers of students from lower-income
families, who have limited English
proficiency or are foster children. The
district receives $141 per pupil with
the new formula, receiving $1.3 mil-
lion total from the state incrementally,
board Vice President Dennis McBride
previously said. There is still a $2.5
million deficit, he said. When he
joined the board in 2003, the district
had 8,000 students and approximately
$95 million. Today, it has 9,000 stu-
dents and $80 million, he previously
Currently, certified, credentialed
teachers make between $45,495 start-
ing to $84,938 annually.
The next step is for the teachers
union is to ratify the agreement.

LONDON — Almost a third of the
world is now fat, and no country has
been able to curb obesity rates in the
last three decades, according to a new
global analysis.
Researchers found more than 2 bil-
lion people worldwide are now over-
weight or obese. The highest rates were
in the Middle East and North Africa,
where nearly 60 percent of men and 65
percent of women are heavy. The U.S.
has about 13 percent of the world’s fat
population, a greater percentage than
any other country. China and India
combined have about 15 percent.
“It’s pretty grim,” said Christopher
Murray of the Institute for Health
Metrics and Evaluation at the
University of Washington, who led the
study. He and colleagues reviewed more
than 1,700 studies covering 188 coun-
tries from 1980 to 2013. “When we
realized that not a single country has
had a significant decline in obesity,
that tells you how hard a challenge this
Murray said there was a strong link
between income and obesity; as people
get richer, their waistlines also tend to
start bulging. He said scientists have
noticed accompanying spikes in dia-
betes and that rates of cancers linked to
weight, like pancreatic cancer, are also
The new report was paid for by the
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and
published online Thursday in the jour-
nal, Lancet.
Last week, the World Health
Organization established a high-level
commission tasked with ending child-
hood obesity.
“Our children are getting fatter,” Dr.
Margaret Chan, WHO’s director-gener-
al, said bluntly during a speech at the
agency’s annual meeting in Geneva.
“Parts of the world are quite literally
eating themselves to death.” Earlier
this year, WHO said that no more than 5
percent of your daily calories should
come from sugar.
“Modernization has not been good
for health,” said Syed Shah, an obesity
expert at United Arab Emirates
University, who found obesity rates
have jumped five times in the last 20
years even in a handful of remote
Himalayan villages in Pakistan. His
research was presented this week at a
conference in Bulgaria.

Drug helps breast cancer
patients to keep fertility
By Marilynn Marchione
CHICAGO — Doctors may have found a way to help
young breast cancer patients avoid infertility caused by
chemotherapy. Giving a drug to shut down the ovaries tem-
porarily seems to boost the odds they will work after treat-
ment ends, and it might even improve survival, a study
“They’re really exciting findings” that could help thou-
sands of women each year in the United States alone, said
the study’s leader, Dr. Halle Moore of the Cleveland Clinic.
“This has implications far beyond breast cancer,” for
young women with other types of tumors, too, added Dr.
Clifford Hudis, breast cancer chief at Memorial Sloan
Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
He is president of the American Society of Clinical
Oncology, which featured the study at its annual conference
in Chicago on Friday. More than 30,000 cancer specialists
from around the world are attending.
Chemotherapy often causes premature ovarian failure, or
early menopause. Doctors think that active ovaries are more
susceptible to chemo damage, and that making them go dor-
mant and stopping a woman’s monthly cycles might help
shield them from harm.
“It’s basically a temporary menopause to prevent perma-
nent menopause,” Moore explained.
The study involved 257 women around the world under age
50 with breast cancers whose growth is not fueled by estro-
gen. They all had standard chemo and half also had monthly
shots of goserelin, a drug to lower estrogen and temporari-
ly put the ovaries at rest. Its main side effects are menopause
symptoms — hot flashes and vaginal dryness.
Doctors then tracked the women to see how the treatments
affected fertility.
After two years, full results were available on 135 partic-
ipants. Only 8 percent of those given the shots became
menopausal versus 22 percent of the others who didn’t get
them. There were 22 pregnancies in the drug group versus 12
in the other one. That’s encouraging, but firm comparisons
can’t really be made because not all women may have been
trying to conceive, and other factors such as a partner’s fer-
tility play a role.
Still, “the difference was enough that in spite of all the
limitations in the study, we were pretty convincingly able
to see an effect,” Moore said.
Last week, the World Health Organization established a high-level commission tasked with ending childhood obesity.

Council and the community had been
very vocal about wanting to see the
project move along, as some referred
to the space as an eyesore.
“I was on the Planning Commission
when it first went through,” said
Mayor Michael Brownrigg, who took
part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to
commemorate the development of a
new senior living community Monday
afternoon. “There was a point when it
was kind of testy between the parties.
There was one 80-year-old guy that had
tears in his eyes who said, ‘what’s it
going to take to get rid of this build-
ing?’ I’m very glad to have this project
back on track. We had to be tough, but
you guys came back to the table.”
A loan was closed for the space,
allowing for the project to be the fully
funded, covering all hard and soft
costs. About three to four weeks ago,
the building began being assessed to
ensure it was structurally sound.
Remedial work will take place over the
next month. Then new construction
will begin over a 10-month period,
said Jim Surdyk, vice president of W.E.
O’Neil Construction company, the
group working on the site.
Sunrise of Burlingame will offer
assisted living and memory care pro-
grams to seniors and their families.
The community will house about 80
units and up to 100 residents.
Brownrigg noted the center is at a
remarkable location since it is right
next to Mills-Peninsula Medical
Center and other nearby health facili-
ties. Jeff Slichta, senior vice president
of operations at Sunrise for the west-
ern region, also noted the area is very
walkable and close to nearby shop-
ping and restaurants.
“There’s such a need here,” Slichta
said. “Palo Alto, San Mateo and
Belmont Sunrises are pretty full. This
site area will be a new urban way of
senior housing. … It’s been as frustrat-
ing to us as it’s been to Burlingame. …
We always like to have a positive rela-
tionship with any community.
Upsetting City Council members and
the community is never something we
want to do.”
Last summer, community members
met with Sunrise, airing their concerns
about the empty space, which they
said had become dirty and dangerous.
“We understand the project in its cur-
rent state is not attractive,” Jerry
Liang, vice president of corporate
finance for Sunrise, said in December
2013. “It appears nothing is happen-
ing at the moment, but we promise we
have been working very diligently
since we last spoke.”
Back in May 2013, the company
received a one-year building permit
extension from the city, which expired
May 28. The city gave the extension,
contingent on certain commitments
that Sunrise had to make. Progress
reports, updates to the city, inspec-
tions of the unfinished structure and
demonstration of progress toward
completion of the project by the new
building permit deadline were some of
the stipulations.
“We waited a long time for it,” said
Councilwoman Ann Keighran. “We hit
a few bumps, but it will be an asset in
the community. ”
Community features are expected to
include electronic health record sys-
tems, enhanced perimeter security and
e-call systems, Wi-Fi connectivity,
along with custom-designed furnish-
ings and decor. Additionally, the center
may offer two floors of memory care
facilities, rather than the one floor
originally planned.
“Six years late, we’re finding a pret-
ty big interest in Alzheimer’s
patients,” Slichta said. “We will really
be flexible with the space. If there’s
demand for memory care services, we
will be able to do that.”
The latest updates on the develop-
ment can be found at sunrise-

written list which outlined prepara-
tions to murder her husband, Randy,
burn down the building with linseed
oil and frame somebody else, prosecu-
tor Tricia Povah told jurors Monday
during closing arguments.
Wenke’s defense attorney Geoff Carr
didn’t dispute his client stabbed her
husband on Sept. 15, 2011, but picked
apart the prosecution’s theory of
motive and argued that she has mental
illness issues exacerbated by misdiag-
nosis and mismedication.
Wenke, 53, has pleaded not guilty
by reason of insanity to premeditated
attempted murder, assault with a knife,
assault with a stun gun and domestic
violence. During the trial, the defense
called several doctors to testify that
Wenke suffered from bipolar disorder,
anxiety and post-traumatic stress dis-
order but Povah Monday argued she
was simply building a mental defense
because she can’t plausibly argue she
either didn’t do it or was acting in self-
“This was not a case between two
strangers,” Povah said, telling jurors
that Wenke’s motive for wanting her
husband dead included a life insurance
policy poised to expire three months
after the attack and a deep hatred for the
father of her young son who she spent
countless therapy sessions focused on.
“How much easier would her life have
been to simply erase him from the
equation?” Povah said.
Povah said Wenke began planning
her crime at least a week before the
attack by arranging a baby-sitter for
her son and setting up a dummy client
by email with which to lure her hus-
band to his office at 7:15 p.m. that
night. Neither investigators for the
prosecutor nor defense ever located
the supposed client, Perry Hadden, and
he was never heard from after that
Wenke allegedly purchased a
mechanic’s jumpsuit, boots, a stun
gun and a mask and drove from Los
Altos to the office on Laurel Street in
Redwood City. Once there, she parked
the truck in front of the window to
block passersby and asked Wenke to
look at a computer screen in another
room, Povah said.
Wenke stabbed her husband twice,
slicing a 4-inch gash across the back
of his neck and puncturing his lung.
Povah said it is unclear if she actually
made contact with the stun gun. Police
found Wenke at the scene with blood
on her hands and wearing the mechan-
ic’s jumpsuit and bubble wrap. Three
gallons of highly flammable linseed
oil and a bucket of rags were in the
back seat of her vehicle — signs of her
arson plan because the Wenke house
had once caught fire because of linseed
oil-doused rags used for cleaning,
Povah said.
Notes on the to-do list to “set up
attic” and “check fire alarms” to ensure
the batteries were missing were other
alleged signs.
Carr countered Povah’s argument by
pointing out there is no indication
when Wenke made her list so jurors
cannot say it was specific to the day of
the attack. Lots of wives have such a
plan on any given day, he joked.
Wenke had no “reasonable motive”
to kill her husband because the $2 mil-
lion in life insurance paled compared
to the $6 million to $8 million the
company pulled in annually, Carr said.
Instead, he said, “this woman by any
interpretation has a series of psycho-
logical things going on.”
Carr also took aim at Wenke’s
reported crime accouterments, saying
there is no proof she purchased the
stun gun and that the mask with which
she was supposedly going to frame a
mustached man had no strap to stay on
her head.
After the stabbing, police asked
Randy Wenke who hurt him and Carr
said his answer speaks to Laura
Wenke’s mental issues.
Wenke, Carr said, told the officer
“that crazy b—.”
Wenke remains in custody without

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Don’t be tempted to
change your plans. Someone pretending to be a friend
could be trying to throw you off course. Use your
innovative ideas to confuse the competition.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — An unexpected change
could work to your advantage. You may not have been
considering professional moves, but a positive result
will unfold if you set your sights high.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Your entertaining attitude
will attract people of influence. Your emotions will be
difficult to control, but can be assets if you want to get
your point across. Don’t neglect your home and family.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Avoid office politics and
gossip. Any opinion you give will lead to a bad situation
that could damage your reputation. Reserve judgment,
be objective and remain neutral.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your chutzpah will gain
you added respect if you speak up about issues that
concern you. Your enthusiasm and knowledge will
help you win valuable allies.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s not healthy to
compare yourself to others. There are bound to be a
lot of factors that you know nothing about. Be content
with your own lot in life and grateful for what you have.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Meeting with
people from outside your circle will present you
with interesting ways to move forward personally or
professionally. If you share as much as you can, you
will make new friends.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t make a
commitment or start a new partnership. Take time
to rejuvenate before you attempt to finish your to-
do list. Paying attention to personal matters should
take top priority.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Do your best to display
honesty in personal and professional relationships.
Boasting will not help you win trust or allies. Stick to
the facts in order to make a good impression.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Look at a long-term
investment that will help you build your assets safely.
Don’t hold back when forceful pursuit is required.
Balance and integrity will bring good results.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Romance is on the rise.
Make special plans with someone you care for, or get
out and meet someone new. Personal happiness can
help you perform better in all walks of life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Fond memories will
make you want to get in touch with an old friend.
Getting together with people who share your interests
or concerns will lead to a joint venture.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-

jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.

MADRID — Spain’s King Juan Carlos,
who led Spain’s transition from dictatorship
to democracy but faced damaging scandals
amid the nation’s financial meltdown,
announced Monday he will abdicate in favor
of his more popular son so that fresh royal
blood can rally the nation.
While the monarchy is largely symbolic,
Juan Carlos’ surprise decision may hold
implications for a burning Spanish issue: the
fate of wealthy Catalonia, which plans to
hold a secession referendum this fall.
Abdication in favor of Crown Prince Felipe
is expected to bring constitutional revisions
to guarantee the new king’s daughter will suc-
ceed him. That could create momentum for fur-
ther constitutional changes aimed at easing
Catalan secessionist fervor, analysts say.
The 76-year-old Juan Carlos said Felipe, 46,
is ready to be king and will “open a new era of
hope.” The son certainly has greater command
over the hearts of his people: Felipe’s 70 per-
cent approval in a recent El Mundo newspaper
poll dwarfs Juan Carlos’ 40.
Juan Carlos didn’t mention the scandals or
Catalonia by name or specify what issues his
son must prioritize as the next head of state
for Spain. He only stressed that Felipe will
need to “tackle with determination the trans-
formations that the current situation demands
and confront the challenges of tomorrow
with renewed intensity and dedication.”
The king told Spaniards in his nationwide
address that he started making a plan to give
up the throne after he turned 76 in January.
Since then, Spain has embarked on what
appears to be a sluggish but steady economic
recovery. Its biggest problems are a 25 per-
cent unemployment rate and the drive by the
wealthy northeastern region of Catalonia to
hold a secession vote in November — one

Pro-Russia rebels attack Ukrainian border guards
LUHANSK, Ukraine — Hundreds of pro-Russia rebels
armed with automatic weapons and rocket-propelled
grenades mounted a daylong assault Monday on a key gov-
ernment base used to coordinate the defense of the country’s
border with Russia, prompting the deployment of air sup-
port by government forces.
Border guards killed at least five rebels in repelling the
attack on their base, a spokesman for the border guard serv-
ice said.
In the center of Luhansk, some six miles (10 kilometers)
away, a blast at an administrative building held by the insur-
gents claimed more lives. Ahealth official for the Luhansk
region told Interfax news agency that at least seven people
had been confirmed dead in what rebels described as a gov-
ernment airstrike.
The government denied carrying out an airstrike and said
the blast was caused by misdirected rebel fire from a portable
surface-to-air missile launcher.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry swiftly condemned what it said
was a government attack on the rebel-held building and
urged U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense Derek Chollet,
who was visiting Kiev on Monday, to help calm unrest in
“We urge our Western partners to use their influence on
Kiev, to stop Ukraine from descending into a national catas-
trophe,” the ministry said in a statement.
Russia also called an emergency meeting of the U.N.
Security Council to introduce a resolution calling for an
immediate halt to the violence and talks to establish a
cease-fire. Moscow has almost daily demanded that the Kiev
government halt its military operations in the east, but it
was the first time it has called for a Security Council resolu-
tion. It was unclear how much support the proposal would
