A Brisbane man was arrested Monday in
connection with a 25-year-old murder,
according to the San Mateo County
Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies arrested Gabriel O’Neill, 45, on
suspicion of murder in the 1989 death of 27-
year-old Sheila Lorraine Hatcher, according
to Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt.
Hatcher’s body was
found March 12, 1989,
by two hikers in a ravine
on San Bruno Mountain
in unincorporated north
San Mateo County.
Investigators said she
had been sexually assault-
ed and suffered blunt force
trauma to her body.
At the time, investigators were unable to
find sufficient evidence to identify a suspect
but, in 2013, Hatcher’s family requested the
case be reopened by the Sheriff’s Office,
Rosenblatt said.
Sheriff’s Office investigators worked with
the San Mateo County Forensic Laboratory
and the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office
and re-examined reports, case files, photo-
graphs and physical evidence.
Investigators said one of the items resub-
mitted to the forensic lab yielded evidence
that linked O’Neill to the homicide.
As the investigation is still ongoing,
Rosenblatt said she could not release what
kind of forensic evidence tied O’Neill to the

Gov., lawmakers
facing weekend
budget deadline
Votes on the main budget bill for the
2014-15 fiscal year expected Sunday
By Judy Lin
SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown
and Democratic lawmakers are trying to
work out the final details of a budget for
the coming fiscal year that largely
adheres to the governor’s call for fiscal
prudence while providing a modest boost
to social and education programs.
Brown wants to dedicate much of the
state’s budget surplus to a beefed-up rainy-day fund and pay-
ing down state debts. But his fellow Democrats in the
Legislature are pushing him to restore cuts to welfare,
health care, child care and education.
Legislative floor votes on the main budget bill for the
2014-15 fiscal year, which starts July 1, are expected
Sunday, the constitutional deadline for lawmakers to pass a
balanced spending plan and avoid forfeiting their pay.

Car detour lets toads
cross road without croaking
PHILADELPHIA — It’s rush hour in
Philadelphia for thousands of baby
toads as they hop across a busy resi-
dential street on a rainy summer night.
Why do toadlets cross the road? To
get to the woods on the other side —
where they will live, eat mosquitoes
and grow up to be full-sized American
toads (bufo Americanus). After a cou-
ple of years, they’ll make the reverse
trek as adults — unless they get
squashed by a car.
That’s where the Toad Detour comes
The Schuylkill Center for
Environmental Education sets up a
roadblock each year in the
Roxborough neighborhood, rerouting
cars so the amphibians can cross the
two-lane street without fear of, um,
The cycle starts in early spring
when adult toads, which can fit in the
palm of your hand, emerge from the
woods to breed. They cross Port Royal
Avenue, scale a 10-foot-high embank-
ment and then travel down a densely
vegetated hill to mate in the aban-
doned Upper Roxborough Reservoir.
Their offspring — each about the size
of a raisin — make the journey in
reverse about six weeks later.
So many baby toads were on the
move Monday evening it looked like
the road’s muddy shoulder was alive.
Volunteers scooped them up in plastic
cups and deposited them on the habitat
side of the street.
“I didn’t expect at all that there were
going to be so many of them in one
area,” said 17-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt as
she held a cup with more than a dozen
toadlets. “And they’re so tiny. They
look like bugs.”
The detour program began in 2009
when a local resident noticed the toad-
filled road. City officials later granted
permission to close the street for a
couple of hours every evening during
both two-week migration periods.
Organizers estimate they helped
2,400 adult toads cross the road this
spring, said volunteer coordinator
Claire Morgan. And because female
toads can lay thousands of eggs, many
more toads are migrating the other
way and need protection.
Though some will inevitably be
squished when the roadblock is not up,
the toad population is not endangered,
Morgan said. But protecting wildlife
is important, she said, and local resi-
dents seem to support the project —
especially after they volunteer to
“We get some people that question
it,” said Morgan. “But after they do it,
they’re hooked.”
Man freed in jury mistake
killed; suspect arrested
FRESNO — A burglary defendant
who won his freedom because of a
jury’s mistake lost his life a few hours
later when he was stabbed to death in a
fight .
The jury in the trial of Bobby Lee
Pearson, 37, mistakenly signed a not-
guilty form Wednesday, and the flab-
bergasted judge said he had no choice
but to order him to be released from
jail because the verdict had already
been put on the record.
It was too late when the judge final-
ly learned that the jury was unable to
reach a verdict, stalling on an 8-4
vote in favor of guilt. Prosecutors
might have had an opportunity to
retry Pearson, but by then, changing
the verdict form would have exposed
Pearson to double jeopardy.
“I can’t believe it,” said Superior
Court Judge W. Kent Hamlin after set-
ting Pearson free, according to The
Fresno Bee.
After being released from jail,
Pearson went to the home of his sis-
ter, Lasandra Jackson, to get some
clothing and belongings. Fresno
police Chief Jerry Dyer said Pearson
apparently got into a fight with his
sister’s boyfriend, 35-year-old Willie
The two had a history of problems,
said Dyer, adding that investigators
believe Gray killed Pearson, who was
found dead in the street with a chest
wound from a knife or gun and a cut on
his stomach. Investigators found a
steak knife near the body, Dyer said.

Friday • June 13, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Paul Larson
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.

A man who severely beat a bisexual
acquaintance with a bicycle U-lock was
sentenced Thursday to four years in prison
for what was originally charged as a hate
crime but later amended.
Santos Manuel Marquez-Montiagudo,
37, pleaded no contest to felony assault
and inflicting great bodily injury in the
July 20, 2013, attack which his defense
attorney characterized as provoked more
by inebriation and being pushed first than
by the victim’s sexuality.
As part of the plea deal, he faced up to
five years prison but defense attorney
Laura Torres said he instead received a four-
year prison term after
Judge Jonathan Karesh
stayed the sentence for
the great bodily injury
was arrested after he and
another friend met up
with the 55-year-old vic-
tim at a San Mateo taque-
ria where the victim
shared his bisexuality.
After the trio left the
business to drink elsewhere, Marquez-
Montiagudo told the victim not to walk by
him because he didn’t want others to mis-
take him as gay.
When the man refused to leave, Marquez-
Montiagudo grabbed the lock from his
bike and began beating his head and body,
according to the District Attorney’s
Office. San Mateo police found the badly
injured man near the 700 block of Santa
Inez Avenue and Marquez-Montiagudo at
Prosecutors originally charged him with
committing a hate crime in the attack that
left the victim with a fractured skull, jaw,
orbital bone and rib. However, a judge
dropped the charge for lack of evidence at
an earlier hearing.
Torres has said all participants were
drunk and unclear about what exactly did

Man gets five years prison for beating bisexual friend
By Michelle Durand
The CEO of neighborhood social media
site Nextdoor pleaded no contest to misde-
meanor hit-and-run for leaving the scene of
an accident by another driver he caused
while unsafely changing lanes on Highway
101 last summer.
Nirav Nalin Tolia, 42, must serve 30 days
in jail and spend two years on court proba-
tion. He must also pay $239 in fines and
what restitution is ordered at an Aug. 1 hear-
The plea deal spares Tolia a preliminary
hearing and potentially trial for felony hit-
and-run in the Aug. 4, 2013, Brisbane inci-
dent that left Patrice Motley with broken
bones in her left hand and neck and back
injuries. If convicted, he faced up to three
years in prison.
Prosecutors only charged Tolia in recent
weeks, opting for the felony rather than a
misdemeanor because Motley sustained
injury. On Thursday, District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe called the reso-
lution “completely
“It’s not a plea bargain
so much as a reassess-
ment of the case in light
of all the information
they gave us,” Wagstaffe
Tolia’s SUV did not
strike the woman’s
Honda Del Sol but prosecutors say he caused
her to spin out of control 180 degrees across
two lanes of northbound Highway 101 traf-
fic and into the concrete center divider while
trying to avoid his lane change just south of
the Candlestick off-ramp. Tolia did not stop
and continued to his San Francisco home.
Police used witness accounts of Tolia’s
license plate to track him the following day.
Motley also filed a civil lawsuit earlier
this month against Tolia seeking damages
for negligence and intentional infliction of
emotional distress. Motley claims in the
suit that Tolia, driving with his wife and
child, was “impatient to overtake a slower
vehicle in front of him” when he tried mov-
ing into the right lane where she was.
Motley honked her horn and Tolia’s wife
alerted him to the impending collision
which made him get back into his own lane,
but the chain of events had already started,
the suit stated.
Motley claims Tolia and his wife saw her
lose control of the car but fled without stop-
ping to see if she, her passenger or her dog
were injured or deceased. Tolia told police he
fled because he was “shaken” and didn’t call
911 because he was in “shock,” the Motley
suit stated.
Tolia is free from custody on his own
recognizance and surrenders to the jail Aug.
He is CEO of Nextdoor.com, a website
used by police agencies and neighborhoods
to help users connect with each other.

Mountain lion in Mountain View hid for hours
GPS data shows a mountain lion that wandered into
Mountain View last month hid behind a hedge on a busy street
for nine hours.
Chris Wilmers, the lead researcher for the Santa Cruz Puma
Project, says the cat left the hedge in Mountain View late in
the afternoon and walked around the city, avoiding people for
another 3 1/2 hours before it was spotted.
Wilmers wrote about the cat’s adventure in a blog.
The cat had a tracking collar that allowed its movements to
be pinpointed.
It was eventually tranquilized and removed, but not before it
sent people scurrying.
Wilmers says the cat’s movements show the need for
wildlife travel corridors between wilderness areas.
Pacifica woman says coyote took her dog
Police in Pacifica are encouraging residents to accompany
their pets after a woman reported seeing a coyote make off
with her small dog.
Pacifica police Capt. Joe Spanheimer says the woman was
watching the dog from her kitchen window early Wednesday
morning when she saw the coyote hop a fence and take it. She
had let the dog out into her backyard, which was fenced in.
The woman lives near open space.
Pacifica police say pet owners should take precautions,
including trimming shrubbery so it doesn’t provide cover for
wildlife and eliminating all sources of water around their
homes. Pets should also be accompanied while outside.
Suspect pleads no contest in bank robbery case
An East Palo Alto man pleaded no contest Tuesday to a rob-
bery charge stemming from a January bank robbery, San
Mateo County prosecutors said.
Lantz Jackson, 53, also pleaded no contest to charges
stemming from a previous narcotics case.
Jackson was facing trial for the Jan. 13 robbery of a San
Mateo Credit Union branch at 1735 E. Bayshore Road in East
Palo Alto. Prosecutors said he entered the credit union and
handed the teller a note demanding money. The teller com-
plied, and Jackson fled the credit union with $676.
Prosecutors said police found Jackson eight days later with
a hat and jacket matching what the suspect was seen on sur-
veillance video wearing during the robbery.
Local briefs
A 74-year-old Belmont man was bit-
ten on the hand by a rattlesnake in his
garage on the 2900 block of Ralston
Avenue Thursday morning.
At approximately 9:20 a.m., Belmont
police and firefighters responded to the
home where they found the man who
was bitten after he reached for a tool. He
was treated on scene and taken to the
hospital. Firefighters captured the snake
and had it taken with the man to the hos-
pital so the proper anti-venom could be
administered, according to police.
Belmont police and fire and the
California Department of Fish and
Wildlife remind the public that San
Mateo County is home to wildlife,
including rattlesnakes. This is especial-
ly important to people living near or
visiting open space and watershed
areas. Be aware that startled rattlesnakes
may not rattle before striking defen-
sively. There are several safety measures
that can be taken to reduce the likeli-
hood of startling a rattlesnake.
• Never go barefoot or wear sandals
when walking through wild areas. Wear
hiking boots;
• When hiking, stick to well-used
trails and wear over-the-ankle boots and
loose-fitting long pants. Avoid tall
grass, weeds and heavy underbrush
where snakes may hide during the day;
• Do not step or put your hands where
you cannot see, and avoid wandering

snakes and to leave them alone.
Children are naturally curious and will
pick up snakes.
Though uncommon, rattlesnake bites
do occur, so have a plan in place for
responding to any situation. Carry a
portable phone, hike with a companion
who can assist in an emergency and
make sure that family or friends know
where you are going and when you will
be checking in.
The first thing to do if bitten is to stay
calm. Generally, the most serious effect
of a rattlesnake bite to an adult is local
tissue damage which needs to be treated.
Children, because they are smaller, are
in more danger if they are bitten. Call
911 or get to a doctor as soon as possi-
ble, but stay calm.

After 25 years, Tri-School Theater
Productions is still putting together shows
that showcase the work of performers from
Junipero Serra High School, Mercy High
School Burlingame and Notre Dame High
School Belmont.
Acabaret performance by current students
as well as alumni from shows over the past
25 years will commemorate the anniver-
sary. There will be also be a special per-
formance from San Francisco’s “Beach
Blanket Babylon” performer and Notre
Dame alumna Caitlin McGinty.
“We have been going strong now for 25
years,” said Jay Jordan, Serra music director
and artistic director for Tri-School. “The
most dramatic change began in the ’90s
when we had outside directors who were very
accomplished. We started upping our game
and becoming as professional as possible.
The production value has gotten better and
better along the years.”
Although the theater group holds cabaret
performances every year, this year is a spe-
cial one for the three Catholic schools since
it’s the 25th anniversary, said Jordan, also
music director for the spring musicals. Tri-
School hosts a fall show and spring musi-
“With our modest stage size, we do some
pretty ambitious technical things,” he said.
“Cabarets are a celebration of our company
and chance for our alumni to come back.”
Jordan, who has been at Serra for 37
years, was one of the people who helped for
Tri-School Productions. Its first production
as an official entity was “West Side Story.”
“The schools always did things together,
but in 1990 it became official,” he said.
“We Tell the Story” Cabaret 2014 will be
held 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 14 at St. Pius
Fitzsimons Center in Redwood City.
Tickets are available on a first come-first
serve basis. There are only 400 seats avail-

to a report of two men fighting on the 3100
block of Middlefield Road at about 8:15
p.m. June 9 and found Michael Anthony
Gonzales, 46, motionless on the ground.
The Redwood City man was declared dead at

WASHINGTON — The Obama administra-
tion has been quietly advising local police
not to disclose details about surveillance
technology they are using to sweep up basic
cellphone data from entire neighborhoods,
the Associated Press has learned.
Citing security reasons, the U.S. has
intervened in routine state public records
cases and criminal trials regarding use of the
technology. This has resulted in police
departments withholding materials or heav-
ily censoring documents in rare instances
when they disclose any about the purchase
and use of such powerful surveillance equip-
Federal involvement in local open
records proceedings is unusual. It comes at a
time when President Barack Obama has said
he welcomes a debate on government sur-
veillance and called for more transparency
about spying in the wake of disclosures
about classified federal surveillance pro-
One well-known type of this surveillance
equipment is known as a Stingray, an inno-
vative way for law enforcement to track cell-
phones used by suspects and gather evi-
dence. The equipment tricks cellphones into
identifying their owners’ account informa-
tion and transmitting data to police as if it
were a phone company’s tower. That allows
police to obtain cellphone information
without having to ask for help from service
providers, such as Verizon or AT&T, and can
locate a phone without the user even making
a call or sending a text message.
But without more details about how the
technology works and under what circum-
stances it’s used, it’s unclear whether the
technology might violate a person’s consti-
tution rights or whether it’s a good invest-
ment of taxpayer dollars.
Interviews, court records and public-
records requests show the Obama adminis-
tration is asking agencies to withhold com-
mon information about the equipment, such
as how the technology is used and how to
turn it on. That pushback has come in the
form of FBI affidavits and consultation in
local criminal cases.
“These extreme secrecy efforts are in rela-
tion to very controversial, local govern-
ment surveillance practices using highly
invasive technology,” said Nathan Freed
Wessler, a staff attorney with the American
Civil Liberties Union, which has fought for
the release of these types of records. “If pub-
lic participation means anything, people
should have the facts about what the gov-
ernment is doing to them.”

PORT HUENEME — The converted ware-

Federal authorities have also set up a
shelter at a military base in Texas and are
planning another for Oklahoma to cope
with what they have described as an “urgent
humanitarian situation.” More than 47,000
children, mostly from Central America,
have been apprehended at the Mexican bor-

WASHINGTON — California
Republican Kevin McCarthy secured a
clear shot to becoming House majori-
ty leader on Thursday as his sole rival
dropped his bid in a leadership fight
that exposed deep fissures within the
Barring an unforeseen challenge,
McCarthy is on a glide path to the No.
2 job in the House behind Speaker
John Boehner, with elections slated
for June 19. Earlier in the day, backers
of the four-term congressman had
spoken confidently about his
Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, in a state-
ment late Thursday, said he had decided
to abandon the race after it “became
obvious to me that the measures nec-
essary to run a suc-
cessful campaign
would have created
unnecessary and
painful division
within our party. ”
Sessions, who
serves as chairman
of the House Rules
Committee, has no
plans to seek the
No. 3 job of whip, said his spokes-
woman, Torrie Miller. Three others are
seeking that post.
Within 48 hours of Rep. Eric
Cantor’s lightning primary-election
downfall, McCarthy and his deputies
aggressively rounded up votes with a
pitch to Southern Republicans and
pointed private conversations on the
House floor in a race that occasionally
had the markings of a personality-
driven contest for class president.
Republicans sought to project an
aura of unity but failed to quiet conser-
vative complaints that such quick
party elections after Cantor’s defeat
gave them little time to rally around
an alternative who better reflects the
right’s ideology and the emboldened
tea party.
The votes next Thursday for majori-
ty leader and whip may well not be the
end of it. Several Republicans asserted
that next week’s action won’t quiet
ambitious lawmakers or factions in
the GOP caucus, and leadership con-
tests after November’s national
midterm elections could produce a
brand new lineup.
Despite conservative discontent,
Boehner’s job does not appear to be in
serious jeopardy. But some lawmakers
noted there was a limit to his security.
“The speaker is speaker in 24-hour
increments. Literally 50 guys can call
a revolt,” said Rep. Tom Cole of
Oklahoma, a Boehner ally.

Letters to the editor
The Fresno Bee
irst, we must make clear — emphat-
ically so — that we want Elon
Musk to build his $5 billion elec-
tric car battery “gigafactory” in California.
We want the 6,500 jobs that come with a
new plant for the Golden State — not
Arizona or Nevada or, God forbid, Texas.
The state has invested a lot in Musk’s
ventures, from Tesla Motors and SolarCity
to SpaceX, in terms of government subsi-
dies and individual appreciation. Athird of
Tesla’s sleek and sexy electric cars are sold
here even though they cost more than the
state’s annual median household income.
We even listened, in somewhat serious-
ness, when Musk suggested the Hyperloop
— a whimsical alternative to high-speed
So understand that when we complain
about Senate Bill 1309, it’s because we
don’t think that only VIPs — Very
Important Projects — should be given
relief from the state’s important but often
misused California Environmental Quality
SB 1309 by Senate President Pro Tem
Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, and Sen.
Ted Gaines, R-Rocklin, appears to do just
that, along with promising financial incen-
tives, for Musk should he decide to build
his plant here.
In this, we approve, as well as commend
state lawmakers for their impressive
urgency in reaching out to Musk before he
committed to building the plant elsewhere.
But this is starting to become a bad leg-
islative habit: handing out a pass on the
troublesome CEQA, which most legislators
agree needs reforming, to only a few politi-
cally connected people. Let’s reform the act
in its entirety, giving the same considera-
tion to everyone falling under CEQA, and
not just those who have special access to
important legislative leaders, or for their
pet projects
Last year, for example, Steinberg got a
bill passed that bent the CEQArules to
expedite the proposed new arena in down-
town Sacramento.
Two years before, the billionaire owner
of Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles
also got legislative relief for his proposed
and still-unbuilt football stadium.
If Steinberg wants to leave an economic
legacy larger than Musk’s battery factory
(which, again, we support), he would use
this opportunity to get CEQAfixed — not
just for billionaires and sports teams — but
for everyone.
We need an overhaul of CEQA, especially
to restrict the growing practice of those
who use abusive litigation to extract proj-
ect concessions. Let’s fix this problem for
Judge Treu and reality
I spent 17 years of my young life labor-
ing in a so-called academic high school in
Santa Clara.
Judge Treu, whose heart is for the young
students he claims to represent, declared
teacher hiring, retention and firing laws to
be unconstitutional. He is not being real
with this short-sighted decision (“Judge:
Teacher tenure not OK” in the June 11 edi-
tion of the Daily Journal). No school sys-
tem can guarantee equality of outcomes,
only equality of opportunity.
Teaching is the teacher’s responsibility
and most try sincerely to present the mate-
rial in a reasonable manner. The other half
of the equation are the attitudes and abili-
ties of students. The teacher must confront
and by extension adjust to the realities
before him. K-12 teaching is, in a large
measure, maintaining control. It involves
a measure of baby-sitting, for most stu-
dents are not mature enough to understand
their responsibilities.
I sympathize with teachers whose stu-
dents come from broken homes and no
breakfast, with poor or no English lan-
guage skills and express hostility toward
the teacher. I was lucky for I never had seri-
ous behavior problems. What are these
teachers supposed to do when they are
thrown into hostile situations and failure is
almost guaranteed? The solution is certain-
ly not to lay all of the blame on the teacher
and to fire him, only to hire someone else
who must face the same, untenable situa-
If any good can come from Judge Treu’s
decision, it will be to bring all parties —
teachers, administrators, unions, politi-
cians and parents — together to meet needs
of low-ability students.
Just about every one of my students could
have earned an Ain my classes, but few did.
It was not a lack of ability, but an unwill-
ingness to work hard enough to earn the
desired grade.
It is a tough business in the best of cir-

Teacher tenure
As a life-credentialed teacher and admin-
istrator in California, I applaud the ruling
of Judge Rolf Treu overturning the
California Teacher Tenure Law. It has been a
crutch for the CTAand AFT to use for pro-
tection of incompetence and poorly trained
teachers. Teachers are not “blue collar”
workers needing a union; they are profes-
sional educators of all the children of all
the people for the future of our nation. It is
time to treat them as the professionals they
are, winnowing out the incompetent and
rewarding the superior.

Preventing future tragedies
The San Mateo Affiliate of the National
Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) extends
our sympathy to the families of Errol
Chang and Yanira Serrano-Garcia killed by
law enforcement in San Mateo County
When tragedies such as these occur, it
often is because something in the mental
health care system went terribly wrong. It
is important to closely examine each case
and determine what contributed to the
tragedy. In this case, police officers served
as first responders and were required to
make determinations that should have been
made by mental health professionals. This
is often the case in communities across the
country, but no matter how compassionate
or well-trained police officers are, they are
not mental health professionals. It is not
fair to place them in that role.
NAMI has long advocated for training for
first responders and dispatchers to ask
callers appropriate questions that would
identify the situation as involving a per-
son with a behavioral health issue. Aquali-
fied mental health expert and negotiator
should accompany law enforcement first
responders in any situation that involves a
mentally ill person.
Families dealing with a mental health
crisis should not be fearful about calling
911. If doing so, they need to ask for a
Crisis Intervention Trained officer, or a per-
son used to dealing with persons with
behavioral health issues to accompany the
first responders.
ANAMI National is the nation’s largest
grassroots mental health organization dedi-
cated to building better lives for the mil-
lions of Americans affected by mental ill-
ness. NAMI San Mateo County is dedicated
to improving the quality of life for people
with mental illness and their families
through support, education and advocacy.

Impact of teacher
tenure decision
he teacher tenure court decision this
week is sure to reverberate across the
state and perhaps even the nation.
The landmark decision essentially stated
that tenure is unconstitutional because it
harms students stuck with underperforming
teachers who cannot be fired. Because
California has approximately 400,000
teachers, many of whom receive tenure with-
in two years, the
decision could have
a ripple effect across
the nation as other
states also decide to
eliminate tenure and
other teacher protec-
The fact of the
matter is that it is
extremely difficult
and time-consuming
to get rid of a bad
teacher and often-
times, a district will
move a teacher and
suggest that they move out of the profession
rather than go through the arduous process of
removal. Needing to remove a teacher is usu-
ally an isolated incident and, for the most
part, teachers who are employed in our pub-
lic schools do an extremely tough job in
ever-increasing difficult circumstances. This
decision taints the entire bunch because of
the difficulty in removing a few bad apples.
The point of tenure is to protect teachers
from retaliation from administrators with
thin skin who may not like what they have
to say. It also allows teachers to teach in
whatever way they think is best without the
fear of retribution. That philosophy is
geared toward the collegiate level, where
professors are often outspoken and use life
examples, within reason, to teach a larger
point. Tenure is also a protection for the
average workaday teachers who commit to a
profession with rewards that are not neces-
sarily monetary. There are also difficult-to-
pinpoint benchmarks to success — is a
teacher in a financially challenged school
doing a bad job if test scores are not high?
Not necessarily. But there are limited ways
in which a teacher’s success can be measured.
Did they reach a hard-to-reach student? Is a
student who did not want to participate in
class discussion now participating? How are
we to know? Test scores appear to be a main
indicator of success but, as many know, just
one indication. Tenure protects teachers who
may not be meeting test score benchmarks
but are succeeding in other ways, sometimes
in difficult situations.
The difficulty in removing bad teachers is a
practical reality, however, and this case,
brought forth by nine students, illustrates
the damage made by those teachers. The
judge received much attention for his dramat-
ic language in his decision, however, that
should not distract from the important con-
tent of it and its impact.
And nowhere in this discussion has been
the role of school district administrators and
elected boards of trustees. They too have a
hand in determining solutions.
So just what are those solutions? One
could be a change to tenure requirements
from two years to something longer. Tenure
should be something earned over time.
Another could be a shift from the policy that
when teachers must be cut, that the last ones
hired are the first to go. This policy does lit-
tle to protect new teachers who often put
their heart and soul into their work. But
these changes would require legislative
action, and that is not something that has
been palatable to any of our legislators who
seek support from powerful and well-funded
teachers’ unions.
The decision will be appealed, and it will
likely be strung out for quite a while.
However, this is an opportune time to have
an earnest discussion about teacher protec-
tions and their ultimate value while also

NEWYORK — Acombination of so-
so economic news and violence in Iraq
helped push the stock market sharply
lower Thursday.
Stocks fell from the start of trading
on a government report that retail sales
for May came in slightly lower than
expected. Aseparate report on jobs was
weak, too. Asurge in oil prices as vio-
lence flared in Iraq also weighed on the
market, and hammered airline stocks.
For the Standard and Poor’s 500, it
was the third down day in a row, a rever-
sal of sorts from steady, if unremark-
able, rises for much of the year. The
index is heading for its first weekly
loss in four weeks.
Uri Landesman, president of hedge
fund Platinum Partners, said investors
had gotten too complacent after a
strong run in stocks, and the pullback
wasn’t surprising.
“It’s time for profit taking, taking
risk off the table,” he said. “It’s very
rare that markets move up in a straight
The Dow Jones industrial average fell
109.69 points, or 0.7 percent, to
16,734.19. The Nasdaq shed 34.30
points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,297.63.
The S&P 500 was down 13.78 points,
or 0.7 percent, to 1,930.11.
The S&P 500 is up 4.4 percent this
year following an impressive 30 per-
cent rise in 2013.
In the retail report, the Commerce
Department said U.S. sales rose 0.3
percent last month, helped by a surge
in auto demand. That was the fourth

weekly applications for unemploy-
ment benefits rose 4,000 to a seasonal-
ly adjusted 317,000.
“The data today was a little unfulfil l-
ing,” said Lawrence Creatura, a portfo-
lio manager at Federated Investors.
Still, he is optimistic in the face of the
selling because he believes the econo-
my is generally strengthening. “We’re
definitely not flinching. We’re holding
our positions.”

Twitter COO Ali Rowghani resigns
NEW YORK — Twitter’s chief operating officer, Ali
Rowghani, has resigned from his post and won’t be
replaced as CEO Dick Costolo seeks
more direct involvement with the com-
pany’s engineering and product teams.
Rowghani joined Twitter in 2010 as
chief financial officer and became COO
two years later. Before that, he served
as CFO at Pixar Animation Studios for
nine years.
Twitter Inc. said in regulatory filing
Thursday that Rowghani’s responsi-
bilities will be shifted to other execu-
tives. It did not give a reason for his departure. With the
shift, Twitter joins other tech companies such as Google,
Yahoo, Apple and Netflix that do not have a COO.
Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg is a notable exception.
Intel lifts revenue forecasts on business PC sales
NEWYORK — Intel on Thursday raised its revenue guid-
ance, saying sales of computers for businesses have been
stronger than expected.
The world’s largest chipmaker is now forecasting rev-
enue of $13.4 billion to $14 billion in the second quarter.
The Santa Clara, California, company had expected $12.5
billion to $13.5 billion in revenue in the quarter. Intel
also expects stronger profit margins.
It also said it expects revenue to grow in 2014. In
January, Intel said its sales would be about the same as
last year’s total of $52.71 billion.
Analysts were forecasting $13.02 billion in revenue for
Intel during the second quarter, according to FactSet.

U.S. Marshals to auction seized bitcoin

SAN DIEGO — California home
prices rose slightly to a new 6 1/2-year
high in May as tight inventories limit-
ed sales, a research firm said Thursday.
The median sales price for new and
existing houses and condominiums
was $386,000, up 0.8 percent from
$383,000 in April and up 13.5 percent
from $340,000 the same period last
year. The median rose from a year earli-
er for the 27th straight month to the
highest level since December 2007,
when it was $402,000.
There were 37,734 homes sold in the
state, down 0.7 percent from 37,988 in
April and down 14.4 percent from
44,087 last year.
Inventories have improved this year
and price increases have moderated.
Still, the numbers provide fresh evi-
dence that buyers are still contending
with a limited supply of homes for sale
and rising prices.
There was a 3.5-month supply of sin-
gle-family homes for sale in California
in April, up from a 2.8-month supply a
year earlier, according to the latest fig-
ures from the California Association of
Realtors. A normal supply is consid-
ered five to seven months.
The median sales price in the San
Francisco Bay area reached $617,000
in May, up 1.1 percent from $610,000
the previous month and up 18.9 per-
cent from $519,000 the same period a
year earlier, San Diego-based
DataQuick said. The median rose from a
year earlier for the 26th straight month
to its highest level since November
2007, when it stood at $629,000.
There were 7,898 new and resale
houses and condos sold in the nine-
county region, up 4.5 percent from
7,555 in April but down 7.5 percent
from 8,541 a year earlier. Bay area
sales typically pick up from April to
DataQuick said Wednesday that
Southern California’s median sales
price was $410,000 in May, up 1.5 per-
cent from $404,000 in April and up
11.4 percent from $368,000 in May
2013. It was the 26th straight month
of annual price increases but the lowest
percentage gain since August 2012.

SAN FRANCISCO — Electric car
maker Tesla Motors is handing over
the keys to its technology in an
unusual effort to encourage other
automakers to expand beyond gaso-
line-burning vehicles.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk promised
Thursday to give away the compa-
ny’s entire patent portfolio to all
comers, as long as they promised
not to engage courtroom battles
over intellectual property
“If we clear a path to the creation of
compelling electric vehicles, but
then lay intellectual property land-
mines behind us to inhibit others, we
are acting in a manner contrary to
that goal,” Musk wrote in a blog on
the company’s Web site.
The decision opens the door to
more collaboration with Tesla, which
is already making electric systems
for Daimler and Toyota. Other
automakers using Tesla’s technology
could potentially share the cost of
Tesla’s charging stations, for exam-
ple. And more chargi ng st at i ons
could entice skeptical buyers to try
electric cars.
Seven years after Tesla introduced
the Roadster electric sports car —
which it no longer makes — electric
cars still make up less than 1 percent
of U.S. sales. Drivers remain con-
cerned about their range and the lack
of places to get a charge. Stable gaso-
line prices have also hurt sales.

Brazil striker Neymar converts a penalty kick for his second goal in a 3-1 win over Croatia in
the World Cup opener Thursday.
By Tales Azzoni
SAO PAULO — Neymar gave Brazil a win-
ning start to its home World Cup, scoring
twice to lead the host nation to an uncon-
vincing 3-1 victory over Croatia in the open-
ing game on Thursday.
Brazil had a disastrous start when defender
Marcelo found his own net while trying to
clear a low cross by Ivica Olic in the 11th
minute, but Neymar then showed why the
nation’s high hopes are all pinned on him.
The 22-year-old forward equalized in the
29th minute, clearing a defender in midfield
before making a run toward the edge of the
area and firing a perfectly placed low shot that
went in off the post.
The game turned on a controversial penalty
awarded by Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura
in the 71st minute when striker Fred went
down inside the area under minimal contact
from defender Dejan Lovren.
Neymar scored from the spot and the
Croatians were furious.
“If that was a penalty, we should be playing
basketball,” said Croatia coach Niko Kovac.
“Those kinds of fouls are penalized there.”
“That is shameful, this is not a World Cup
referee. He had one kind of criteria for them
and another for us. The rules were not the
same,” said Kovac.
As Croatia searched desperately for an
equalizer, Oscar added to the lead in the first
minute of injury time with a toe poke from
just outside the penalty area.
Croatia had a few good chances toward the
end and had a goal disallowed in the 83rd after
the referee ruled Olic had fouled Brazil goal-
keeper Julio Cesar.
The host nation hasn’t lost in the opening
match in the last nine World Cups. South
Africa was held by Mexico to a 1-1 draw four
years ago.

ment for Brazil, which had won its opening

MIAMI — San Francisco 49ers star quar-
terback Colin Kaepernick and two other
NFLplayers will not face charges in an inci-
dent involving a woman at a downtown
hotel, prosecutors announced Thursday.
A memo released by the Miami-Dade
County State Attorney’s Office said there
was insufficient evidence that any crime was
committed in the hotel room on April 1.
Tests indicated the
woman was not sexually
assaulted and other evi-
dence backed up the play-
ers’ contention that noth-
ing happened.
In fact, the memo by
Assistant State Attorney
Laura Adams described the
woman as incoherent
when police and fire-res-
cue officers responded to
911 calls to the room at the Viceroy Hotel.
She had to be sedated in order to be taken to
the hospital, where she was temporarily
involuntarily committed for her own safety,
the memo says.
“When she heard the officers’ voices, the
complainant started screaming incoherent-
ly about Jesus and devils,” Adams wrote.
A hotel security officer told police that
when he arrived at the room, the woman
began praying, “asking God to forgive her
of her sins” and began screaming in words
the security officer couldn’t understand,
according to the memo. She banged her head
against the walls and started kicking uncon-
At the hospital, doctors noted that she
was “severely agitated” and appeared to be
in an altered mental state, although no evi-
dence of drugs beyond marijuana were
detected in her system, Adams wrote. The
woman had told police she and the three

SAN FRANCISCO — Giants manager
Bruce Bochy expected good things from Tim

than he anticipated.
Hudson threw seven strong innings and

San Francisco avoided a four-game sweep,
beating the Washington
Nationals 7-1 on
“I’ve always admired
him from the other side,
how well he competes,”
Bochy said. “I felt we
were getting a front-line
pitcher who will give us a
chance to win on a con-
sistent basis. He’s done
all we’ve expected and
even more.”
Michael Morse got three hits and scored
twice for the Giants, who had a five-game
winning streak before Washington came to
town. The Nationals have lost just twice in
10 games.
“It’s not much fun playing the fourth game
of a series trying not to get swept,” Bochy
said. “The guys did a good job of forgetting
the first three games and went out and played
Hudson (7-2) allowed one unearned run and
six hits. He walked two, struck out five and
improved to 3-0 in his last five starts, which
includes a suspended game. The Giants are 7-
0 in games Hudson has started at home.
“We played good defense to keep me out of
some jams,” Hudson said.
Blake Treinen (0-3) remained winless at
the major league level despite a 2.08 ERA.
He gave up two runs and five hits in five

level,” Treinen said. “But I still need to

PINEHURST, N.C. — There was some-
thing unusual in the opening round of the
U.S. Open.
Abunch of scores in the 60s.
The best one of all was turned in by
Martin Kaymer.
His confidence spurred by a win at The
Players Championship, Kaymer birdied
three of the last five holes Thursday for a 5-
under 65, the lowest score from any of the
three Opens played at Pinehurst No. 2.
The German got up and down for par at the
18th hole, rolling in a testy 6-foot putt to
beat the 66 shot by Sweden’s Peter Hedblom
during the second round in 2005.
Graeme McDowell, Kevin Na and Brendon
de Jonge were three shots back.
Kaymer beat a loaded field at The Players
last month, snapping a stretch of 29 tourna-
ments without a victory stretching over 18
“I needed a win,” Kaymer said. “Whether
it was The Players or a regular PGA Tour
event, I just needed it for my confidence, for
all the hard work I’ve put in the last couple
of years.”
Ten other players were in the clubhouse at
69, meaning there were more under-par
rounds in this opening round than the last
two years combined.
At Merion a year ago, only five players
broke par on Thursday.
At Olympic Club in 2012, there were just
six scores in the 60s.
No one expected Pinehurst to stay this
inviting through the weekend.
“There was some moisture on the greens
and you were able to hold shots,” Na said. “I
was able to capitalize on a good tee time.
But there’s a long way to go. Obviously,
I’m 2-under par right now, but at the end of
the tournament even par is going to win
this championship.”
That’s still a good bet.
The last two Open champions finished
over par.
Phil Mickelson got off to a strong start as
well in his bid for the career Grand Slam,
attacking the course with deft iron shots on
the way to a 70.
McDowell, who won the U.S. Open at
Pebble Beach in 2010, was as steady as can
be on this Donald Ross masterpiece, which
has undergone a drastic makeover to restore
its rustic look, with patches of natural veg-
etation — better known as weeds — taking
the place of thick, lush rough.
The Northern Irishman bounced back from
his only bogey at No. 4 with an eagle 3 at
the par-five fifth hole. He added another
birdie at the 14th and the rest of his card was
filled in with pars, just the sort of solid,
mistake-free golf that is required in the U.S.
“You don’t have to strike it amazing
around here,” McDowell said. “You just have
to position the ball correctly at all times.”
Na also made an eagle at No. 5 on the way
to the best Open round of his career. He
missed the cuts in 2010 and 2011, and fin-
ished 9 over at his last Open two years ago.
After thick cloud cover made things easier
for the morning players, the blistering sun
broke through and the temperature climbed
to 90 by mid-afternoon. Still, there were
low scores to be had, with 20-year-old
Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Matt
Kuchar and Henrik Stenson among the big
group at 69.
Not everyone was thriving. The world’s
top-ranked player, Adam Scott, shot 73.
Masters champion Bubba Watson sprayed
shots all over the place on the way to a 76.
Spieth was in the thick of things again,
making four birdies to put himself in con-
tention at another major championship. He
was tied for the lead heading to the final
round of both the Masters and The Players
Championship, but couldn’t close out either
on Sunday. It seems just a matter of time
before the young Texan claims a career-
defining triumph.
Maybe it will be at Pinehurst.
Kaymer seizes U.S. Open lead with 65
Martin Kaymer tees off on the 9th hole during the first round of the 2014 U.S. Open at
Pinehurst No. 2. Kaymer fired a 5-under 65 for the first-round lead.
Former TV exec says
college pay a dangerous path
OAKLAND — A former president of CBS
Sports says he fears the popularity of college
sports would suffer if athletes receive money
to play because fans enjoy the concept of
young people playing sports for the love of
the game.
Testifying in a landmark antitrust case
brought against the NCAA, Neal Pilson said
giving athletes money for the use of their
images on television broadcasts might also
set off a “land rush” among conferences and
schools to spend whatever is needed to attract
the best football and basketball players.
“I have a substantial concern it would
change the fabric of the sport,” Pilson said.
“Asignificant number of people in the public
see one concept of college sports being that
young people are playing for the joy of the
game would convert into a sense that, well,
this is just another professional sport.”
Pilson, who said he spent 20 years trying
to figure out what sports the American public
wanted to watch while at CBS, said he
believes fans have an appreciation of college
sports that are rooted in the fact that athletes
compete on behalf of long established
schools and do so without demanding any-
thing more than scholarships and room and
Paying them for the use of their names and
images as sought by the plaintiffs in the
trial, he said, would change the way college
sports are perceived by the general public.
Under cross examination, though, Pilson
acknowledged that he wasn’t sure how much
money athletes would have to be paid to neg-
atively influence fans, or if paying them only
after they were done with school would be an
issue. Still, he said, the idea of paying play-
ers could be a real game changer.
“If the Boston College basketball team
will share revenues from television and, lo
and behold, each member of the Boston
College basketball team is entitled to
$200,000, I just think that’s a negative,”
Pilson said. “I think that’s a problem for the

SAN JOSE — Oakland A’s High-Aaffiliate
Stockton has featured something of a
minor-league dream team at the top of its
lineup this week.
With 2012 first-round draft pick Addison
Russell on a weeklong rehab assignment,
the Ports have three legitimate infield
prospects occupying the three top spots in
the batting order.
2012 first-round draft pick Daniel
Robertson has moved from shortstop to third
base to accommodate Russell, who is set to
move up to Double-AMidland on Sunday. The
infield carousel is nothing new for Robertson
though, who bounced back and forth on the
left side of the infield while sharing time with
Russell during stints at rookie-ball and Low-
AVermont in 2012.
“It’s pretty cool to look at (the current
lineup) because we’ve got some guys that can
hit a little bit,” Robertson said. “It’s a good
group of guys — great talent. We all like to
come out here and have fun and compete. It’s
cool how we feed off each other.”
With Robertson and second baseman Chad
Pinder, Stockton has packed quite an offen-
sive punch up the middle this season. The
tandem entered into last night’s game at San
Jose’s Municipal Stadium as the Ports’ best
two hitters, with Pinder ranking eighth in
the California League with a .321 average
and Robertson second on the squad hitting at
a .295 clip.
Also a natural shortstop, Pinder is accli-
mating to second base this season. And he
and Robertson have forged a strong chem-
istry over the middle, which is a big reason
why Stockton entered into play Thursday
with a 35-32 record and tied with Visalia atop
the wild card standings in the California
League North Division standings.
“Robertson and Pinder, they’ve been solid
all year,” Stockton manager Ryan
Christenson said. “There was a little stretch
where [Pinder] was battling some freak
injuries. But when he’s been in the lineup,
he’s been great. He’s acclimated to second
base really quickly. He struggled a little bit
initially with it being his first time on the
right side of the infield … but he’s done a
tremendous job.”
Russell has emerged as one of the top
prospects in the organization though. An
11th overall draft pick out of Josh
Donaldson’s alma mater Pace High School in
2012, Russell impressed in his first full sea-
son of professional baseball last season by
hitting .275 with 17 home runs at Stockton.
He even earned a brief promotion to Triple-A
This season, Russell entered into spring
training in contention for the big-league job
at shortstop. However, two weeks into Cactus
League play he pulled his right hamstring dur-
ing a game while accelerating out of the bat-
ter’s box.
“I just want to go out there and perform,”
Russell said. “I wanted the coaches to see me
play and they put me in good positions to
play and I performed pretty well there. With
my injury, it was a bummer. But I knew if I just
kept up the good work and stayed on a good
schedule that I’d come back.”
As a result of the injury, the prized prospect
was shut down for the rest of spring training
and was only cleared to play two weeks ago
when he started rehabbing at extended spring
training in Arizona. But he’s been a welcome,
albeit brief, addition to the Stockton squad.
“He looks good,” Christienson said. “He’s
moving good. He’s playing a hundred percent
Robertson and Russell have quite a bit of
history together on the baseball diamond.
Although they grew up on different sides of
the country — Russell from Pace, Florida and
Robertson from Upland, California — the
two frequently played together on the nation-
al showcase stage, competing in both the
Perfect Game National Showcase and the Aflac
All-American Game.
While they only knew each other in pass-
ing, the two made fast friends upon being
drafted into the A’s organization in 2012.
Robertson and Russell actually roomed
together in the spring at the former’s condo
in Phoenix. And along with Pinder, also
selected out of high school as a second-round
pick in 2013, the trio have the distinction of
successfully moving up the minor-league lad-

“You know, the three high school guys in
the first round and we all just kind of clicked,”
Russell said.
As fate would have it, the trio ran into a
buzz saw Thursday with Giants reliever
Santiago Casilla on a rehab assignment of
his own. Casilla impressed by working the
first inning and retiring Robertson, Pinder
and Russell in order.
Russell is keeping a close watch on the
big leagues though, especially the goings
on in Oakland, and with quite some admira-
tion at that.
“They’re first in the A.L. West, and
they’re all performing good,” Russell
said. “Cespedes is making those throws
out there in the outfield and Crisp is doing
his thing. The minor-league guys, we look
up to those guys and the way they go about
their business.”
And whether it’s sooner or later, Russell —
with his natural athleticism and his smooth
power stroke — seems destined to eventually
be one of those guys. His current infield con-
stituent at Stockton sure seems to think so, as
Russell figures to be a big-leaguer for many
years, Robertson said.
“I feel like I can be a good asset to the
team,” Russell said. “There’s really no time-
line in my mind. I just want to go out there
and play and let everything else take care of

Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez had a two-run
single for the Giants.
Adam LaRoche drove in a run for the
Nationals. Jose Lobaton, making his third
consecutive start behind the plate, added
two hits.
Hudson allowed two or fewer runs for the
10th time in 13 starts. He beat the Nationals
for the 17th time, the most of any active
player, in 30 starts.
“I just try to go out there and give us a
chance to win,” Hudson said. “It doesn’t
matter than we lost three in a row or won
three in a row. I feel like I put forth the same
effort every time. When you have lost three
straight to the same team there’s more
urgency behind it.”

Gonzalez in the starting rotation, has
pitched against tough competition. The four
starters he’s faced have combined for 14
opening day starts.
“He’s done well and is working hard at
every aspect of the game,” Nationals’ man-
ager Matt Williams said. “He has that power
slider, which is his go-to pitch. Working on
the development of his other pitches is
what is important.”

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — All that was miss-
ing was the Bambino — and the sun.
On a rainy, late-spring day that forced the fes-
tivities inside, the Baseball Hall of Fame cele-
brated its diamond anniversary on Thursday
with more than 300 people gathered in the
museum’s showpiece Plaque Gallery.
“It’s a significant birthday. It’s well worth cel-
ebrating,” Cal Ripken said before he and fellow
Hall of Famer Phil Niekro helped cut a piece of a
huge birthday cake made for the occasion with
the Hall of Fame’s 75th anniversary logo in the
middle. “It is the history of baseball.”
Stephen Clark, a Cooperstown native and
grandson of one of the founders of the Singer
Sewing Machine Co., and National League pres-
ident Ford Frick were the main movers behind
the creation of the Hall of Fame, and they cham-
pioned the idea based on the myth that Abner
Doubleday invented baseball in Cooperstown.
The first sports hall of fame in the world
opened in 1939 and has morphed from a one-
room building into a 50,000-square-foot shrine
with 40,000 artifacts and a library featuring 3
million items.
“We are baseball’s version of the
Smithsonian and the Library of Congress, all in
one,” said Hall of Fame Chairman Jane Forbes
Clark, granddaughter of Stephen Clark. “It has
made an indelible mark on this region and all of
baseball. What a visionary my grandfather was,
taking Cooperstown and giving it things that
would carry it into the next century.
“Even though he saw the world in a much
longer-term fashion than most, I think even he
would be in awe of what’s happened,” she said,
The first class of inductees was elected in 1936
— Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy
Mathewson, Honus Wagner and Babe Ruth —
and the Hall of Fame opened three years later —
100 years after the Doubleday idea was born.
Ruth was the centerpiece of that first class,
and he attended the Hall of Fame’s official open-
ing on June 12, 1939. He was the last person to
speak before Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain
Landis officially opened the museum.
“They started something here and the kids are
keeping the ball rolling,” Ruth said that day on
the front steps of the Hall of Fame as 15,000
fans craned their necks to get a glimpse of the
Bambino. “I’m very glad that in my day I was
able to earn my place. And I hope youngsters of
today have the same opportunity to experience
such feeling.”
Ruth, who made his major league debut nearly
a century ago — on July 11, 1914 — would be
119 today, and yet his impact remains as pro-
found as ever.
And he was on the mark with his observation.
The Hall of Fame has had nearly 16 million vis-
itors since its opening day, and to help mark its
milestone birthday a new Babe Ruth exhibit
will open on Friday.
The 180-square-foot display — “Babe Ruth:
His Life and Legend” — will feature artifacts that
tell his whole story, including a trophy present-
ed to him by his so-called “Baltimore admirers”
on May 20, 1922. That’s the day Ruth returned
to the Yankees after being suspended by Landis
for the start of the season for illegally barn-
storming after the 1921 World Series. Fans from
his hometown made the trip north to New York
just to welcome him back.
Also to be included in the revamped exhibit is
a recently discovered film showing Ruth at
spring training in March 1920. It’s believed to
be the earliest known footage of Ruth in a
Yankee uniform.
Ruth was a figure larger than life, and his
impact on the Hall of Fame has been like no
other. The Babe Ruth Room opened in 1992 and
quickly became the museum’s most popular

MIAMI — The San Antonio
Spurs have three more chances to
grab the championship trophy that
slipped away last year.
The way they’re dominating the
Miami Heat, they might need just
Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and
14 rebounds, and the Spurs routed
the Heat again, winning 107-86 on
Thursday night to open a com-
manding 3-1 lead in the NBA
The Spurs can win their fifth NBA
championship with a victory at
home in Game 5 on Sunday and
avenge their seven-game loss to
Miami last year. And if the Heat are
going to deny them again, it will
take the biggest comeback in NBA
Finals history.
LeBron James tried to keep the
Heat in it with 28 points and eight
rebounds, but Dwyane Wade was
just 1 of 10 through three quarters
and finished with 10 points.
No team has overcome a 3-1
deficit in the finals, and the way
they were outclassed twice on their
home floor makes it hard to imag-
ine the two-time champions being
the first.
Tony Parker added 19 points, and
Tim Duncan had 10 points and 11
rebounds for the Spurs, who shot
57 percent from the field.
The Spurs lost twice in Miami to
end last year’s finals, their only
defeat in the championship round.
They won their two games in South
Florida this time by a combined 40
If this was the last home game of
the season in Miami, it looked and
sounded nothing like the ones to
end the last two years, which fea-
tured confetti falling and trophies
raised. This one had the unfamiliar
sound of boos late in the first half
and a chant of “Go Spurs Go!” with
under 3 minutes left from the San
Antonio fans who remained long
after many of Miami’s had bolted.
If the Heat force a Game 6, it
would be in Miami Tuesday.
The Heat had followed their last
13 postseason losses with a victo-
ry, but at the end of a fourth straight
season that went the distance, they
might be out of gas. Miami seemed
to lack the energy — or maybe
effort — to defend San Antonio’s
precision ball movement for the
full 24 seconds, and time after time
the Spurs ended up with a shot from
somebody who didn’t have a
defender nearby.
Not quite as sharp as when they
shot a finals-record 75.8 percent in
the first half Tuesday night, the
Spurs were still plenty good
enough to open another huge lead
by halftime, and they turned away
every attempt Miami had to make a
The Spurs knew their defense had
to be better, realizing their once-
in-a-lifetime, 19-for-21 start in
Tuesday’s 111-92 Game 3 victory
covered the fact that they allowed
Miami to make more than 50 per-
cent in the game.
The defense was definitely
improved in the first half, holding
Miami to 12 of 34 (35 percent).
The Spurs missed their first three
shots after needing 22 attempts to
miss three times Tuesday. They
quickly got untracked from there,
running off a 13-2 spurt to open a
nine-point lead, and that was the
margin when they went to the sec-
ond ahead 26-17.
San Antonio got the first five of
the second to make it 31-17 on
Danny Green’s 3-pointer, and the
Spurs blew it open later in the quar-
ter with seven straight points,
capped by Leonard’s soaring fol-
low dunk that made it 55-33.
It was another rough start for
James, who battled cramps in Game
1, then left the court and briefly
returned to the locker room midway
through the first quarter Thursday.
He had 10 quick points in the
third quarter to bring Miami within
13, but San Antonio got a basket
from Tim Duncan to start a 7-0 run
that pushed it to 68-48. The Spurs
poured it on late in the third, push-
ing the lead to 81-57.
Not es: Under Gregg Popovich,
the Spurs have won 15 of the 18
best-of-seven series in which they
led 2-1. ... The Heat hadn’t lost
back-to-back games in the playoffs
since dropping three straight
against the Boston Celtics in the
2012 Eastern Conference finals.

Kaepernick consistently denied any

she was pregnant and he cut off contact with
her, including changing his phone number,

Eventually, she learned Kaepernick and
Lockette would be in Miami and made

match the last eight times. The five-time
champion entered the home tournament hav-
ing won 15 of its last 16 games, including
five in last year’s Confederations Cup, the
warm-up tournament it won. The team hadn’t
been held to a draw in the opener since a 1-1
result against Sweden in the 1978 World Cup
in Argentina.
The result kept Croatia without a win in its
last five World Cup matches. Its last triumph
was a 2-1 win over Italy in 2002. The Croats
didn’t play in South Africa four years ago.
The tournament finally got underway as
planned after months of talk about the
preparation problems that plagued Brazil
since it was picked as host seven years ago.
The troubled Itaquerao Stadium, which
wasn’t fully finished for the opener, held up
without major setbacks to fans or the match
itself, although part of the lights atop the
pitch went out a few times for brief periods
in the first half.
Despite the support from most of the
more than 62,100 fans in attendance, Brazil
got off to a slow start and allowed Croatia to
threaten early. It opened the scoring with
one of its first chances as Marcelo failed to
clear Olic’s cross. The ball got slightly redi-
rected by striker Nikica Jelavic before the
Brazilian defender touched it backward into
the goal.
The crowd stayed behind the team despite
the setback and Brazil started creating more
chances. Midfielder Paulinho and playmaker
Oscar both came close to scoring, but it was
Neymar who found the net with his well-
struck low shot into the far corner.
“I wouldn’t say it was the best game, but
it’s the World Cup debut,” said Oscar. “I’m
representing the national team and I’m giv-
ing it my best. And I managed to do this.”
The penalty kick was awarded when Fred
appeared to be tugged inside the area by
Lovren. The Croats insisted Fred wasn’t
touched and at least five Croatian players
swarmed around Nishimura of Japan to
Neymar converted his shot from the spot
even though Croatia goalkeeper Stipe
Pletikosa touched the ball and nearly made
the save.
The goals were Neymar’s 32nd and 33rd
goals in 50 matches with Brazil’s national
team. The Barcelona star got a standing
ovation when he was substituted near the
end of the match.

Ronaldo cuts short
training session for Portugal
CAMPINAS, Brazil — Cristiano Ronaldo
cut short a training session with Portugal on
Thursday, leaving the field with an ice pack
over his left knee — indicating that his ten-
dinitis may still be bothering the star forward.
Ronaldo trained with the
rest of the team for about
15-20 minutes doing
physical exercises but
then did not take part in
the rest of the session with
full ball drills.
Instead, he stretched on
his own and signed a few
shirts for fans before
going to sit on the bench.
When he left, he had an ice
pack over his left knee.
Ronaldo has been bothered by left leg
injuries ahead of the World Cup, and was side-
lined for two weeks with tendinitis in the knee
and a thigh problem.
However, Portugual midfielder Joao
Moutinho said there was nothing to worry
about concerning Ronaldo’s health.
“Ever since he started to train with us he has
been 100 percent like the rest of us,”
Moutinho said. “Everything is fine with him
but there is some caution, not only with him.
Today many other players were using ice as
well. There is nothing to worry about. The ice
is normal after training.”
Police and World Cup
protesters clash in Brazil
SAO PAULO — Protesters and Brazilian
police clashed in Sao Paulo on Thursday, just
hours before the first World Cup match was to
be played in the city.
More than 300 demonstrators gathered
along a main highway leading to the stadium.
Some in the crowd tried to block traffic, but
police repeatedly pushed them back, firing
canisters of tear gas and using stun grenades.
Afew protesters suffered injuries after being
hit by rubber bullets, while others were seen
choking after inhaling tear gas. An Associated
Press photographer was injured in the leg after
a stun grenade exploded near him. CNN report-
ed on its website that two of its journalists
were also injured.
“I’m totally against the Cup,” said protester
Tameres Mota, a university student at the
demonstration. “We’re in a country where the
money doesn’t go to the community, and
meanwhile we see all these millions spent on
In the crowd were anarchist adherents to the
“Black Bloc” tactic of protest, a violent form
of demonstration and vandalism that emerged
in the 1980s in West Germany and helped shut
down the 1999 World Trade Summit in Seattle.
Such Black Bloc protesters have frequently
squared off against police in several Brazilian
cities in the past year, as a drumbeat of anti-
government demonstrations have continued
since a massive wave of protests hit Brazil
last year.
Meanwhile, about 300 protesters gathered
in central Rio de Janeiro in another demon-
stration against the World Cup. By early after-
noon, no clashes with police were reported
there, as marchers took to streets to denounce
lavish public spending on a sports tourna-
ment in a nation with profound social needs.
Dutch play down revenge
talk ahead of Spain clash
SALVADOR, Brazil — Don’t mention the
On the eve of the crucial rematch of the
World Cup championship game four years ago
between the Netherlands and Spain, the Dutch
were playing down any talk of seeking
revenge for the agonizing 1-0 defeat in
Johannesburg in 2010.
“It’s history. It doesn’t matter any longer,”
winger Arjen Robben said Thursday, a day
before the two teams’ World Cup Group B
opener at the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador. “I
don’t believe in revenge — 2010 was a final,
this is a group match. You can’t compare it. “
In a possible indication of the way the
Netherlands will play Friday, coach Louis van
Gaal defended the tough tackling four years
ago that earned eight players a yellow card and
one a sending off.
Traveling a breeze Thursday
SAO PAULO — The World Cup managed to
end Sao Paulo’s seemingly endless traffic jam
— at least for a few hours. All it took was for
Brazil to play in the tournament opener.
Few cars were on the streets two hours
before the host Selecao faced Croatia on
Thursday at the Itaquerao, the newly opened
stadium on the eastern edge of the city built
for the Corinthians club team. There was only
a fraction of the usual pedestrian traffic.
Officials declared Thursday a holiday in Sao
Paulo. Some shops were shut, with gates
pulled partially or completely down.
Still, there were some people walking
around the Paulista district downtown and a
few sitting in cafes, which had televisions on
tuned to pregame shows. Amajority of those
out wore yellow Brazilian home jerseys or
blue road shirts.
Most Brazilians apparently avoided travel
on game day so as not to risk missing the
opening match.
Rio’s normally bustling Santos Dumont
domestic airport was eerily calm Thursday, and
there was hardly a customer to be seen in the
FIFA store. Even the World Cup-themed Fun
Zone, which has table soccer pitches, large
screen TVs and benches for fans to rest, was
nearly empty. Only employees were taking
advantage of the table soccer facilities.

BAGHDAD — The al-Qaida-
inspired group that led this
week’s charge in capturing two
key Sunni-dominated cities in
Iraq vowed Thursday to march on
to Baghdad, raising fears about
the Shiite-led government’s abil-
ity to slow the assault following
lightning gains.
Signs emerged that the Islamic
State of Iraq and Levant is backed
in its campaign by former mili-
tary officers and other members
of ousted dictator Saddam
Hussein’s regime — including a
force led by Izzat Ibrahim al-
Douri, the late leader’s former
deputy who escaped the 2003
U.S.-led invasion and eluded U.S.
and Iraqi forces ever since.
As world leaders expressed
alarm over the destabilization of
large parts of the country by
fighters from the militant group
known as the Islamic State of
Iraq and the Levant, the U.N.
Security Council met on the cri-
sis, but there is little prospect of
any action by the body.
President Barack Obama said
Iraq will need more help from the
United States, but he did not
specify what it would be willing
to provide. Senior U.S. officials
who spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not
authorized to discuss the matter
by name said Washington is con-
sidering whether to conduct
drone missions in Iraq.
In the north, Kurdish security
forces took over an air base and
other posts abandoned by the
Iraqi military in ethnically mixed
Kirkuk, a senior official with the
Kurdish forces said. He denied
they had taken over the oil-rich
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki
asked parliament this week to
declare a state of emergency that
would give him increased powers
to run the country, but the law-
makers Thursday failed to assem-
ble a quorum to do so.
The Islamic State aims to create
an Islamic emirate spanning
both sides of the Iraq-Syria bor-
der. It has been able to push deep
into parts of the Iraqi Sunni
heartland once controlled by
U.S. forces because police and
military forces melted away after
relatively brief clashes.
Two senior intelligence offi-
cials told the Associated Press
that an armed group led by al-
Douri, the Naqshabandi Army,
and other Saddam-era military
figures joined the Islamic State
in the fight. In Saddam’s home-
town of Tikrit that was overrun
by militants Wednesday, wit-
nesses said fighters raised
posters of Saddam and al-Douri.
The two officials spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to talk
to the press.
The involvement of Saddam-
era figures raises the potential to
escalate the militants’ campaign
to establish an al-Qaida-like
enclave into a wider Sunni upris-
ing. That could only further the
momentum toward turning Iraq’s
sectarian and ethnic divisions in
to a geographical fragmentation.

WASHINGTON — Less than
three years after pulling American
forces out of Iraq, President Barack
Obama is weighing a range of
short-term military options,
including airstrikes, to quell an al-
Qaida inspired insurgency that has
captured two Iraqi cities and threat-
ened to press toward Baghdad.
“We do have a stake in making
sure that these jihadists are not
getting a permanent foothold,”
Obama said Thursday in the Oval
However, officials firmly ruled
out putting American troops back
on the ground in Iraq, which has
faced resurgent violence since the
U.S. military withdrew in late
2011. A sharp burst of violence
this week led to the evacuation
Thursday of Americans from a
major air base in northern Iraq
where the U.S. had been training
security forces.
Obama, in his first comments on
the deteriorating situation, said it
was clear Iraq needed additional
assistance from the U.S. and inter-
national community given the
lightning gains by the militant
group Islamic State of Iraq and
Levant. Republican lawmakers
pinned some of the blame for the
escalating violence on Obama’s
reluctance to re-engage in a con-
flict he long
For more
than a year, the
Iraqi govern-
ment has been
pleading with
the U.S. for
additional help
to combat the

which has
been fueled by the civil war in
neighboring Syria. Northern Iraq
has become a way station for
insurgents who routinely travel
between the two countries and are

Iraqi leaders made a fresh request
earlier this week, asking for a mix
of drones and manned aircraft that
could be used for both surveillance
and active missions. Officials said

requests and was expected to decide
on a course of action within a few

Short of airstrikes, the president
could step up the flow of military

government, increase training

You thought it was tricky to
train a dragon?
It’s even trickier to take a
much-admired animated film
and make a sequel that feels
satisfying and worthwhile.
And it’s harder still to balance
the competing needs of
stretching the story in new
directions but retaining the
guiding spirit of the original
enough to make fans happy.
It’s nice to be able to report that
“How to Train Your Dragon 2,”
written and directed by Dean
DeBlois, does all that tricky stuff
pretty darned well. And you’ll be
happily surprised at the new
twists it takes — sort of like get-
ting an unexpected second candy
bar in the vending machine.
“How to Train Your Dragon 2”
doesn’t play it safe, and that’s
why it’s the rare sequel that
doesn’t feel somewhat stale.
The story returns us to Berk,
where our young Viking hero,
Hiccup (again voiced by Jay
Baruchel), lives and frolics with
his devoted dragon, Toothless,
whom he befriended in the first
movie, with momentous ramifi-
cations for human-dragon rela-
tions. Five years have passed,
and now Berk is a virtual play-
ground for dragons and Vikings
An amusing opening sequence
shows the new pursuit of drag-
on-racing, a game that vaguely
resembles Quidditch. And
adjustments have been made to
enhance dragon-human coexis-
tence: for example, an aqueduct
system, to quickly put out those
pesky dragon-breath fires.
Hiccup, though, isn’t into the
games — he’s attracted to the
beautiful skies, and spends his
time exploring them, aboard
Toothless, adding to the map

There’s no doubt that Stephen Sondheim
is the reigning genius of American musical
theater. With his complex melodies and
intricate lyrics, he has entertained audiences
for several decades.
TheatreWorks is taking a look at a rela-
tively early Sondheim revue, the 1980
“Marry Me a Little,” which features songs
written for other shows like “ALittle Night
Music,” “Follies,” “Company” and others.
Some were kept, some discarded from
those shows. Craig Lucas and Norman René
wove them into a story about two lonely
young people who live in the same building
but don’t know each other.
Simply called Him and Her, they sing
about their feelings as they spend another
Saturday night alone.
Director Robert Kelley has updated it to
the present and moved it from New York to
San Francisco, where Him (A.J. Shively)
returns from work on a bicycle and Her
(Sharon Rietkerk) returns with a Whole
Foods bag of groceries.
Him lives in the apartment above Her, but
Kelley has the actors sharing the same
space, often side by side, but as if they were
in those separate units. Musical director
William Liberatore accompanies the actors
on piano from a neighboring building.
Both actors are youthfully appealing and
dance well. Shively also sings well.
However, Rietkerk has a shrill voice and
sometimes goes sharp, detracting from the
The set by Bruce McLeod has an authentic
San Francisco feel, complete with a down-
town skyline.
Running about 70 minutes without inter-
mission, the show feels longer, perhaps
because it seems disjointed despite every-
one’s best efforts.
“Marry Me a Little” continues at the
Mountain View Center for the Performing
Arts, Castro and Mercy streets, through June
29. For tickets and information, call (650)
463-1960 or visit www.theatreworks.org.

he’s making of the world. His first scene of
airborne frolic with Toothless is absolutely
beautiful, and a sign of the visual delights
to come.
Hiccup’s restless nature, though, is at
odds with the aspirations of his burly
father, Stoick the Vast (a sweetly gruff
Gerard Butler), who wants Hiccup to take up
new responsibilities. But Hiccup doesn’t
feel leadership is really his thing. That’s
what he tells spunky Astrid (America
Ferrera, back from the first film), who is
now his girlfriend, as well as a fellow
explorer. (Other famous returning voices
are Jonah Hill as Snotlout and Kristen Wiig
as Ruffnut.)
One day Hiccup and Astrid make an omi-
nous discovery: A trapper’s fort. Eret, son
of Eret (Kit Harington) is cocky and ambi-
tious. But his boss? He’s evil. That would be
Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou), a
vicious villain who’s building a dragon
army. Hiccup resolves to stop him.
And someone else, he learns — a myste-
rious figure in the skies — is also fighting
Drago. Her name is Valka, and she is,
shockingly, none other than Hiccup’s
mother, long presumed dead. In fact, Valka
— voiced by Cate Blanchett in an elegant,
otherworldly accent — has spent these
long years saving dragons. The scene in
which she shows him the fantastic oasis
where these rescued dragons live — a tropi-
cal wonderland inside a giant ice formation
— is a marvel of color and inventive
design, probably the prettiest scene in the
For a while, it seems like a perfect family
reunion. But happiness is short-lived. Valka
doesn’t believe, as her family does, that
dragons can live with humans — humans
can be too cruel. And Drago, with his vio-
lent plans, is proving her right.
Without giving away too much, this is
where the film travels into darker areas than
its predecessor, displaying an admirable
maturity. Many animated tales involve
dashing acts of bravery, but rarely do they
show the possible tragic consequences of
such acts. Many tears will be shed over the
scene where Hiccup learns that bad things
can happen to good people.
And there’s another lesson here, too:
People — or creatures — who love you
sometimes can still hurt you. Relationships
have their limits. Animated films for kids
don’t routinely address such matters. Kudos
to the creators here, who took a terrific first
film and made a sequel that, both visually
and thematically, lives up to that promise.
“How to Train Your Dragon 2,” a 20th
Century Fox release, is rated PG by the
Motion Picture Association of America “for
adventure action and some mild rude
humor.” Running time: 102 minutes. Three
stars out of four.

Hershey Felder makes a welcome return
to Berkeley Repertory Theatre with anoth-
er one-man show, “Maestro,” focusing on
20th century musical genius Leonard
Felder previously delighted audiences
with his “George Gershwin Alone.” As he
did in that show, Felder talks, sings and
plays the Steinway to illustrate his story.
This time he examines the influences in
Bernstein’s illustrious career, starting
with his pious Jewish immigrant father.
He initially discouraged his son’s musical
inclinations, but unwittingly caused
young Leonard to see connections
between traditional Jewish songs and
themes by composers like Beethoven.
Beethoven was one of Bernstein’s com-
positional inspirations, starting a line
that continued through Mahler, Wagner,
Copland and Gershwin, whom he wanted
to succeed.
Bernstein is perhaps best remembered
for his musicals, especially “West Side
Story” and “Candide.” Several of the
show’s highlights come from “West Side
Story”: “Somewhere,” “Maria,” “Tonight”
and “One Hand, One Heart.”
He also composed piano and orchestral
works and was an accomplished conductor,
eventually becoming directing the
esteemed New York Philharmonic.
Furthermore, he was a musical educator
featured on such TVseries as “Omnibus” in
the ’50s and ’60s. One of those broadcasts
is seen as the audience enters.
Felder speaks as if he were Bernstein at
his final concert and recreates conversa-
tions with and opinions of people in his
During the 100-minute, intermission-
less show, Felder points to conductors
who influenced Bernstein. And he talks
about Bernstein’s wife, Felicia, with
whom he had three children. He loved her
and appreciated that she helped with some
of his writing, yet he also had affairs with
Because Bernstein had such a full life
during his 72 years, it’s not easy to encap-
sulate everything, but Felder does a good
job of keeping the focus on his musical
career, contributions and influences. It’s
an absorbing theatrical work.
“Maestro” continues through July 3 at
Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s Thrust
Stage, 2025 Addison St., Berkeley. For

Birmingham Museum of Art, a charm-
ing parquet-floored, yellow-walled
gallery contains the largest collection
of Wedgwood ceramics in the United
States. The 10,000 pieces the museum
holds, thousands of which are always
on display, is comprised of the Dwight
and Lucille Beeson Wedgwood
Collection and the Buten Wedgwood
Collection, each lovingly assembled
over decades and donated separately.
The Beeson Collection concentrates on
the Josiah Wedgwood and Thomas
Bentley partnership period (1769-80)
and reveals the development of
Wedgwood pottery, from the red
stoneware produced in the 1760s to the
work of Emile-Aubert Lessore in the
1870s. The Buten collection, focusing
on the 19th and 20th centuries, includes
examples of all types of objects made
by the factory, in all media, and with all
types of decorations. Together, the
Beeson and Buten Collections provide
an invaluable resource for the study of
one of the most important ceramics
manufactories in history.
PORTLAND VASE. Among the rare
pieces in the BMAcollection is a circa-
1790 Wedgwood copy of the Portland
Vase, a Roman cameo glass vase dated
about A.D. 5-25. Sir William Hamilton,
the British ambassador in Naples, pur-
chased the vase in 1778 and brought it
to England, where it was later acquired
by the 3rd Duke of Portland. In 1785,
the Duke loaned the vase to Josiah
Wedgwood, who produced a perfect
copy of the vase, not in glass but in
jasperware. Beginning in 1790,
Wedgwood issued “first-edition” copies,
only a handful of which exist today. The
Birmingham Museum of Art has two,
each made during Josiah Wedgwood’s
lifetime. One is a black copy, numbered
by Wedgwood himself; the other is one
of only five known slate-blue exam-
ples. (The original Portland Vase has
been in the British Museum in London
since 1810.)
WHITE. Anne Forschler-Tarrasch,
Ph.D., The Marguerite Jones Harbert
and John M. Harbert III Curator of
Decorative Arts at the Birmingham
Museum of Art, said: “We are very proud
to house the largest collection of
Wedgwood in the country – and really
the only collection of its kind in the
U.S. Although most people think of the
stereotypical blue and white when they
think of Wedgwood, the factory is and
always has been so much more. I spend
a lot of time with our Wedgwood collec-
tion in my day-to-day work and have
come to truly love the company and its
products. Josiah Wedgwood was such a
visionary and the wares he created
embody the period in which they were
created so well. Every time I go into our
gallery or into our Wedgwood storage
space I see new things. I am always sur-
prised at the great variety of objects and
types of ceramic that Wedgwood pro-
duced, and at the range of artistic cre-
ativity behind the works. I really have
the best job in the world – working with
a collection that is so fascinating and
has so much to offer.”
The museum’s Clarence B. Hanson Jr.
Library contains the Chellis Wedgwood
Collection, the largest special collec-
tion in the world related to Josiah
Wedgwood and his manufactures, and is
the United States' center for the study of
Wedgwood. Among the library hold-
ings are Sir William Hamilton’s
Collection of Engravings from Antique
Vases, known as the Hamilton Folios,
the first European color-plate books.

NEWYORK — Astage curtain believed to
be the biggest Pablo Picasso painting in
the United States is moving to a museum
after a dispute over whether it could stay in
its longtime spot in the storied Four
Seasons restaurant, the painting’s owner
announced Thursday.
The 19-by-20-foot curtain, called “Le
Tricorne,” is being donated to the New York
Historical Society, where it’s expected to
go on display after some conservation
work, painting owner the Landmarks
Conservancy said. The timetable isn’t
clear; the groups still are working out the
The agreement will keep the painting,
which is so familiar a sight that its Four
Seasons berth is known as “Picasso Alley. ”
The pact also resolves a lawsuit that caused
a stir among art lovers and preservation-
ists, pitting the Landmarks Conservancy
against a real estate magnate known as an
art patron.
“It’s going to be at a good home, where
even more people will see it,” conservancy
President Peg Breen said. Historical Society
President Louise Mirrer called the painting
“an icon of New York for more than half a
century, embodying both an influential
social milieu and an important moment in
the city’s cultural development.”
Picasso painted the curtain in 1919 for
“Le Tricorne,” or “three-cornered hat,” a
ballet created by the avant-garde, Paris-
based Ballet Russes troupe. The painting
depicts the aftermath of a bullfight.
Although praised at $1.6 million in
2008, the painting isn’t considered one of
Picasso’s greatest pieces but stands as a
major example of his theatrical set work,
experts say. And it has graced the Four
Seasons’ landmarked, modernist interior
since its 1959 opening. The painting itself
isn’t landmarked.

Ruby Dee dead at 91
By Karen Matthews and Mark Kennedy
NEW YORK — Ruby Dee, an acclaimed actor and civil
rights activist whose versatile career spanned stage, radio tel-
evision and film, has died at age 91, according to her daugh-
Nora Davis Day told the Associated Press on Thursday that
her mother died at home at New Rochelle, New York, on
Wednesday night of “natural causes.”
Dee, who frequently acted alongside her husband of 56
years, Ossie Davis, was surrounded by family and friends, she
“We have had her for so long and we loved her so much,”
Day said. “She took her final bow last night at home sur-
rounded by her children and grandchildren.”
Day added: “We gave her our permission to set sail,” said
Day. “She opened her eyes, closed her eyes and away she
Her long career brought her an Oscar nomination at age 83
for best supporting actress for her role in the 2007 film
“American Gangster.” She also won an Emmy and was nomi-
nated for several others. Age didn’t slow her down.
“I think you mustn’t tell your body, you mustn’t tell your
soul, ‘I’m going to retire,”’ Dee told the Associated Press in
2001. “You may be changing your life emphasis, but there’s
still things that you have in mind to do that now seems the
right time to do. I really don’t believe in retiring as long as
you can breathe.”
Since meeting on Broadway in 1946, she and her late hus-
band were frequent collaborators. Their partnership rivaled
the achievements of other celebrated performing couples,
such as Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy.
But they were more than a performing couple. They were
also activists who fought for civil rights, particularly for
“We used the arts as part of our struggle,” she said at an
appearance in Jackson, Miss., in 2006. “Ossie said he knew
he had to conduct himself differently with skill and thought.”

and an even longer association in show business with the
publication of a dual autobiography, “With Ossie and Ruby:
In This Life Together.”

O’Neill wasn’t originally looked at
during the time of Hatcher’s murder,
Rosenblatt said. However, due to the

ly with closure, a suspect has now
been identified, Rosenblatt said.

Rosenblatt said she wasn’t sure of
the last time the Sheriff’s Office had
been able to solve a cold case, but
added it’s always rewarding to provide
a family with some answers.
“There’s no end date on solving
something like this. The fact that
we’re able to give the family that lost
someone close to them some closure,
is at least something that we can do in
such a sad and horrific situation as
this. It’s sad, we feel empathy for the
family that it took so long to get an
answer. But thankfully, through the
use of modern technology and a dili-
gent investigation, we were able to
put a murder suspect in custody, ”

“We try to balance many objectives:
fiscal balance, a healthy reserve, pay
down debt and make some key invest-
ments in education, health and human
services and other priorities,” Senate
President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg
said in an interview Wednesday. “To
find that sweet spot is always hard.”
Brown has succeeded so far at fend-
ing off major spending proposals from
members of his own party. The
Legislature’s joint budget committee
announced a plan late Wednesday to
include $264 million for expanding
early education programs for 4-year-
olds, an amount far below what
Democrats originally sought.
That would pay for an additional
11,500 preschool slots for low-
income families by June 2015, with an
additional 31,500 slots planned in the
future. Additional funding would be
provided in the form of grants to exist-
ing preschool programs, increased
child-care reimbursement rates and
professional training.
Combined with existing programs,
the proposal would provide early edu-
cation assistance to roughly 234,000
children, covering half of all 4-year-
olds in the state. Even so, it falls well
short of Steinberg’s original goal of
spending $1 billion to provide pre-
school to all California children.
Steinberg acknowledged that he did-
n’t get as much as he proposed, but he
said it was progress. “We have a lot to
celebrate,” he said.
Democratic lawmakers had also
sought more money for higher educa-
tion than Brown had proposed. Under a
compromise, the University of
California and California State
University systems will receive an
additional $50 million each if proper-
ty taxes come in higher than projec-
It remained unclear Thursday just
how much more money would be allo-
cated for other Democratic priorities,
including in-home care for seniors and
the disabled, welfare and Medi-Cal, the
state’s health insurance program for
the poor. The legislative budget com-
mittee continued to work on remaining
issues Thursday afternoon.
Democrats did secure flexibility in
prison funding to spend tens of mil-
lions of dollars more on mental health
services as a way to improve treatment
and increase rehabilitation options.
The governor proposed a record
$107.8 billion in spending from the
general fund using more conservative
revenue projections. Democrats, who
control the Senate and Assembly, had
wanted to use rosier estimates to
restore services for the poor that were
reduced during the recession, as
California struggled to close multibil-
lion-dollar budget shortfalls.
The governor and lawmakers already
have agreed to a fresh version of the
rainy day fund to smooth out the
boom-and-bust cycles of state budget-
ing and begin paying down massive
liabilities in the teachers’ pension
Brown and lawmakers reached agree-
ment how the state will spend new rev-
enue generated from pollution fees
under the state’s cap-and-trade pro-
The governor had wanted to use $250
million next fiscal year then commit
33 percent of ongoing fees for
California’s bullet train, but the com-
promise presented to lawmakers
Thursday reduces that to 25 percent.
Lawmakers also will allocate portions
of the pollution fees for affordable
housing, public transit and energy-
conservation efforts to reduce green-
house gas emissions.
Such funding will help get more low-
income people out of their cars and on
to buses and light rail, said Shamus
Roller, executive director of Housing
California, an affordable housing
advocacy group.
Even though the budget requires just
a simple majority vote to pass the
Legislature, Democrats were scram-
bling to negotiate details and meet
Sunday’s deadline.
Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff, R-
Diamond Bar, criticized a hasty

and competing at the fair is about much
more than a week at the San Mateo
County Event Center.
“You have the [animals] for four
months. You have to get up early, wash
them and groom them. If you slack off,
it will be obvious at the fair — if you
slacked off during the year,” Weiss said.
Emmalee Holmes, a 17-year-old
Sequoia High School student, said her
sister and friends introduced her to the
Cañada 4-H club seven years ago. This
year, she and her sister raised two
Hampshire Suffolk lambs.
They start by visiting with a breeder
and inspecting the infant lambs,
Holmes said. After years of experience,
Holmes said they base their picks on
body composition through measuring
the distance between the rib cage and
hips, which has the flattest back and
biggest rear end.
At the fair, 4-H members enter the
arena and are judged by how well
they’ve trained their animals, which
display superb genetics and which
appears would produce the best meat,
Holmes said.
Depending on the type of animal they
raise, they’re typically sold for slaugh-
“It feels good to be up there and be
rewarded for what you’ve done. But
sometimes it’s hard (to sell them),
especially with the larger animals
because you get attached,” Holmes said.
Cole Alves, a 17-year-old Woodside
High School student, said she’s partici-
pated in 4-H for nine years and spent
the last three months dedicated to rais-
ing a lamb.
Alves said outside of undertaking the
responsibility of raising an animal
they can sell for enough to break even,
they learn an undeniable lesson about
where their food originates.
“You have the hands-on experience.
It’s just a different way of learning.
They wouldn’t teach you this in school.
It’s just not something you get to expe-
rience every day, especially where we
live,” Alves said.
Most of the teens live in urban areas
where raising farm animals is far from
the norm. Sjolund said some of their
classmates think their time with 4-H is
a little odd, but the lessons are highly
“A lot of people respect us more
because [we] know where their food
comes from,” Sjolund said.
Raymond Juballa, a 16-year-old
Hillsdale High School student who has
participated in 4-H for eight years, said
he takes on a hefty responsibility for
the fair. Juballa said he raised chickens,
a turkey, rabbits and a lamb.
The Cañada 4-H members said the ani-
mals they raise produce a much higher
quality of meat compared to what a typ-
ical grocery store can offer.
Animals that are less stressed because
they’re not kept in tight quarters and
provided with a nutritional diet taste
much better, the group said.
“It is a lot of work, but I think it’s
worth it because of the experience you
get,” Juballa said.
4-H provides a range of opportunities
that include learning about photogra-
phy, gardening, archery, sewing,
astronomy and even geocaching.
“It’s everything from how to make a
peanut butter and jelly sandwich to boat
safety. It’s pretty much anything,”
Sjolund said. “It’s not just animals,
there’s a lot of leadership and crafts.
Next year, I want to do a computer sci-
ence [presentation]. It’s whatever
lifestyle you want to pursue.”
4-H participants and their animals are
on display throughout the nine-day fair.
The Master Showmanship competition
is Friday between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The
first-place winner from each species cat-
egory will display their animals for the
The animals are auctioned Saturday
beginning 10 a.m.

Manager John Maltbie.
The Board of Supervisors will con-
sider the request at Tuesday’s meeting
as part of adopting its $2.1 billion
budget for fiscal 2014-15.
Although the state gave counties
more money for realigned prisoners
now in local control, the cash-
strapped courts did not fare as well and
has absorbed continual significant
cuts. The new commissioner should
help cover the county’s entire criminal
justice caseload including that of
realigned populations, Maltbie wrote
in his budget memo. Realignment
shifts some state prisoners to county
The salary and benefit costs are
$205,000 annually.
Court Executive Officer John Fitton
declined comment on the funding rec-
ommendation until after the Board of
Supervisors act Tuesday.
The San Mateo County Superior
Court once had seven commissioner
positions but slashed four positions in
2013 as part of its budget trimming.
Commissioners also cannot vote with
judges or preside over budgets and
court assignments.
Commissioners hold essentially the
same duties as judges although they
tend to be assigned misdemeanors and
lower-level responsibilities like traffic
court. Two sitting commissioners were
elected judge in the June primary, leav-
ing those upcoming vacancies to fil l ,
t oo.
Although the proposed new commis-
sioner position has no direct bearing
on the county’s budget, the addition is
one of several changes since the board
approved its two-year document last
September. The preliminary 2014-15
budget then was $1.93 billion with
5,343 positions. The updated budget is
$2,100,387,995 and adds 22 posi-
Among the funding changes since
last year is the addition of $87.1 mil-
lion in net proceeds from the Circle
Star Plaza sale which are being set
aside for future construction projects
and $18.5 million in other capital
improvement project like the Maguire
Correctional Facility, new solar pan-
els, the replacement animal shelter and
water fixture upgrades.
Changes to the allocation of the
Measure A half-cent sales tax total
$8.6 million and include extending a
contract with Seton Medical Center,
fixing and replacing farm labor hous-
ing, improving the East Palo Alto
library and adding two Veterans
Services positions.
The budget also includes $1.34 mil-
lion for a District Attorney Case
Management System and $100,000 to
redesign its homeless shelter.
The board will revisit the fiscal year
2014-15 adopted budget at its Sept. 23
meeting after making final adjustments
and revisions.
The Board of Supervisors meets 9
a.m. Tuesday, June 17 in Board
Chambers, 400 County Government
Center, Redwood City.

considering bidding on this property lien,
you should understand that there are
risks involved in bidding at a trustee auc-
tion. You will be bidding on a lien, not
on the property itself. Placing the high-
est bid at a trustee auction does not au-
tomatically entitle you to free and clear
ownership of the property. You should
also be aware that the lien being auc-
tioned off may be a junior lien. If you
are the highest bidder at the auction, you
are or may be responsible for paying off
all liens senior to the lien being auctioned
off, before you can receive clear title to
the property. You are encouraged to in-
vestigate the existence, priority and size
of outstanding liens that may exist on this
property by contacting the county record-
er's office or a title insurance company,
either of which may charge you a fee for
this information. If you consult either of
these resources, you should be aware
that the same lender may hold more
than one mortgage or deed of trust on
the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on this
notice of sale may be postponed one or
more times by the mortgagee, beneficia-
ry, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Sec-
tion 2924g of the California Civil Code.
The law requires that information about
trustee sale postponements be made
available to you and to the public, as a
courtesy to those not present at the sale.
If you wish to learn whether your sale
date has been postponed, and if applica-
ble, the rescheduled time and date for
the sale of this property, you may call
877-484-9942 or 800-280-2832 or visit

ponements that are very short in duration
or that occur close in time to the sched-
uled sale may not immediately be re-
flected in the telephone information or on
the Internet Web site. The best way to
verify postponement information is to at-
tend the scheduled sale. Date: May 22,

ISLAMABAD — Missiles from U.S.
drones slammed into militant hideouts
overnight in northwestern Pakistan, killing
13 suspected insurgents and marking the
resumption of the CIA-led program after a
nearly six-month break, officials said
The strikes were swiftly condemned by the
Pakistani government, with the Foreign
Ministry saying in a statement that they
were a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty
and its territorial integrity.
The strikes came just days after a five-hour
siege of Pakistan’s busiest airport ended
with 36 people, including ten militants,
killed. The audacious attack raised concerns
about whether Pakistan was capable of deal-
ing with the Pakistani Taliban, which said it
carried out the assault along with an Uzbek
militant group.
It was not immediately clear if the drone
strikes were connected to the airport attack.
Pakistan routinely condemns drone strikes
even when they target armed groups at war
with the government.
The Pakistani government had asked the
U.S. to refrain from drone strikes while it
was trying to negotiate a peace deal with the
militants, but even before the airport siege
those talks had largely collapsed.
Now the focus has shifted to whether
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will
authorize a large-scale military offensive
against the North Waziristan tribal areas
where the militants are headquartered.

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s president ral-
lied support Thursday for his plan to end
fighting in the country’s east in phone calls
with U.S., Russian and German leaders, even
as he condemned what Ukrainian officials
called an incursion of armored vehicles from
The Ukrainian interior minister said three
tanks crossed into Ukraine along with other
armored vehicles from Russia and were
attacked by military forces fighting pro-
Moscow separatists. He did not directly
accuse Moscow of sending the tanks, but said
it showed Russia had failed to fulfill promises
to tighten border controls.
Russia has denied sending troops or
weapons to Ukraine, describing Russian citi-
zens who have joined the armed separatists as
volunteers. There was no independent confir-
mation that the tanks had come from Russia.
In Washington, U.S. State Department
spokeswoman Jen Psaki said if the military
incursion was confirmed, it would be a “seri-
ous and disturbing escalation of the crisis in
eastern Ukraine.”
The reported incursion followed statements
earlier Thursday by Russia’s foreign minister
that the separatists were ready for a cease-fire
but that Kiev had to initiate the process.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko,
who took office less than a week ago, told
Russian President Vladimir Putin that it was
“unacceptable” that tanks had crossed the
border, according to his spokesman,
Svyatoslav Tsegolko.
