County planning $12.5M redesign of Middlefield Road
By Samantha Weigel
The Downtown San Mateo
Association is searching for a new
leader after Executive Director
Jessica Evans, who helped over-
see community events, promote
local businesses and the arts,
unexpectedly resigned Friday.
Evans said
she left the
DSMA after two
influential years
to assist with
business devel-
opment for a
startup compa-
ny and focus on
her family.
“There were so many good
things that came together over the
last couple of years: winning the
Best of the Road, having a City
Council that made downtown a pri-
ority and having so many talented
people willing to just roll up their
sleeves and get involved. It was a
really great experience,” Evans
wrote in an email.
Evans, who has a degree in city
planning and previously ran the
San Bruno Chamber of Commerce,
said she became a single mom
while working for the DSMA.
“It’s an amazing job, but it’s a
demanding job, especially in
terms of time. Lots of nights and
weekends. I was recently present-
ed with an opportunity ... that will
allow me the quality of life I’m
looking for while my kids are still
little,” Evans wrote.
Evans said her passion for vol-
unteer engagement and public art

SACRAMENTO — Two of the
nation’s largest public pension
funds on Monday reported invest-
ment returns of more than 18 per-
cent for the fiscal year.
The California Public
Employees Retirement System had
earnings of 18.4 percent for the
fiscal year that ended June 30,

The funds, which pay the retire-

Store accepts a
25-year-old gift certificate
Massachusetts pop culture store has
honored a 25-year-old gift certificate.
Sierra Wales, assistant manager at
That’s Entertainment in Worcester,
says a longtime customer recently
brought in the $10 gift certificate
bought in 1989.
She tells The Republican newspaper
that the gift certificate had been sit-
ting in a drawer for years. The cus-
tomer had been meaning to bring it in
for some time and finally remembered
over the Fourth of July weekend.
She noted that the gift certificate
was older than most employees and
had actually been bought at the store’s
old location.
The customer used it to buy a graph-
ic novel.
The 34-year-old business sells
comic books, graphic novels, toys,
sports memorabilia, music and other
pop culture items.
Wales says, “When we say it never
expires, we really mean it.”
Officials: Gasoline caused
mystery odor in homes
SKIPPACK, Pa. — Gasoline-tainted
groundwater caused the mysterious
smell that led to a voluntary evacua-
tion of more than 150 homes in subur-
ban Philadelphia, authorities said
The noxious odor primarily affected
three townhouses in Skippack after
contaminated water got into the sump
pumps, officials said. Firefighters were
flushing those pumps with fresh water
and airing out the homes with fans on
Monday evening.
“We’re relieved and hopeful that
what they’re doing will fix it,” said
resident Kourtnay Loughin, who called
911 about the “very, very unpleasant”
smell on Sunday evening.
Officials don’t know how the gas got
into the groundwater, but Fire Chief
Haydn Marriott said residents’ health
was not in danger. He also noted the
substance was found in a system with
sealed pipes, creating little chance of
contamination to the surrounding
area’s water supply.
Firefighters and environmental offi-
cials used sensors Sunday night to try
to identify the problem. Residents of
more than 150 townhouses were asked
to leave after chemical odors were
detected at several units.
Metered equipment originally indi-
cated the presence of hydrogen
cyanide, a poisonous gas, in the
homes, but officials later said those
readings were false positives. No
signs of illness were reported.
By Monday morning, Marriott said
authorities had determined sump
pumps as the source of the smell, but
could not identify its composition. As
labs began analyzing samples, offi-
cials retested some houses and allowed
owners to return after finding no dan-
Loughin’s unit and the two next door
registered high levels of the chemical
“It’s more of an annoyance than
anything,” Marriott said.

Eugene J. Majeski, founding partner of
the Redwood City firm Ropers Majeski
Kohn & Bentley died peacefully July 4, sur-
rounded by his family.
He was 97.
Born in Chicago on Christmas Eve,
1917, he attended DePaul University, grad-
uating with a B.S. degree in 1936 and his
law degree in 1940. He was admitted to the
Illinois Bar in 1940 and the California Bar
in 1946. After coming west, he began prac-
ticing law with Bronson, Bronson and
McKinnon in San Francisco. In 1948,
along with Harold Ropers, he moved down
the Peninsula and founded Ropers and
Majeski in Redwood City. Seventy-six
years later, the firm still bears his name
and, headquartered in Redwood City, now
has offices in San Francisco, San Jose, Los
Angeles, Boston and New York.
He tried well over 200 jury trials in state
and federal courts. He was
a member of the
American Board of Trial
Advocates and was named
Trial Lawyer of the Year
in 1989. He was a
Diplomate of the
International Academy of
Trial Lawyers and in
1985 was elected to the
Trial Lawyer Hall of
Fame by the Litigation Section of the State
Bar of California. He has been listed
among the Best Lawyers in America since
the list was first formulated in 1984. He
was long affiliated with the San Mateo
County Bar Association and the
Association of Defense Counsel and served
as president of both organizations.
Gene was a mentor to dozens upon
dozens of lawyers who started their
l egal careers at Ropers Maj eski ,
including many who moved on to suc-
cess at other law firms.
“Gene was always willing to spend time
helping fellow partners and others with
their problems. He was generous with his
time and legal advice, always, on matters
big and small,” said John Bentley,
Majeski’s former partner of 50 years.
Another former partner, Judge Bart
Phelps, who joined Ropers Majeski in
1960, knew Gene for 67 years and went on
to a distinguished career on the Santa Clara
County Bench.
“Gene’s strength as a trial lawyer was his
charm — judges and juries loved him,” said
Gene is survived by his wife Susan
Handelman Majeski, son John Majeski,
daughter Ann Majeski and by his wife’s
children Kirsten Daru and Kaitlyn

Three charged in disabled
parking permit crackdown
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco prose-
cutors have charged three people with apply-
ing for disabled placards permits they did not
need, and a spokeswoman for the California
Department of Motor Vehicles says more
arrests are expected.
District Attorney George Gascon said
Monday that a 50-year-old woman and her
29-year-old son allegedly forged the signa-
ture of a doctor who had never treated them on
their applications for the permits that allow
motorists to use the blue parking spaces
reserved for the disabled and to park at meters
for free.
Gascon says a 35-year-old woman who
allegedly submitted seven applications over
four years also was arrested.
All three were charged with filing false doc-
uments, perjury and commercial burglary.
DMVspokeswoman Jessica Gonzalez says
the arrests are the first from an ongoing
investigation that has identified at least 29
suspected cases of placard fraud since

REDDING — A wildfire in Northern
California that authorities say was sparked
by exhaust from a truck at a marijuana culti-
vation site prompted new evacuations on
Monday as it kept growing.
It was not immediately clear how many
homes were included in the new evacuation
order in the rural community of Igo in
Shasta County.
Fire officials said the Bully Fire, which
started on Friday, was threatening 15
homes after destroying eight homes and 10
other structures. It had burned through
4,700 acres, or more than seven square
miles, and was 15 percent contained.
Fire crews have been hampered by steep
terrain and dry conditions. Temperatures
were expected to climb to 108 degrees on
Monday, state fire spokeswoman Teresa Rea
“We have some very, very difficult condi-

lawmakers announced legislation
Monday to speed removals of tens
of thousands of Central American
kids from the U.S.-Mexico border,
as Washington groped for a solu-
tion to the mounting crisis.
Legislation brought forward by
Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican,
and Rep. Henry Cuellar, a
Democrat, would allow U.S.
Border Patrol agents to turn many
of the kids around quickly at the
border. Under current law, the
youths stay here while awaiting an
eventual hearing in the back-
logged immigration court system,
something that can keep them in
this country for years.
Of more than 57,000 unaccom-
panied minors who’ve arrived at
the border since October, only
1,254 had been returned home as
of the end of June, according to a
law enforcement official who
spoke anonymously to discuss
confidential data.
“The border region in Texas has
been overwhelmed over the past
few months by a deluge of undocu-
mented immigrants from Central
America,” Cuellar said in a state-
ment. “Today’s legislation
strengthens current law protecting
unaccompanied children and
responds to the crisis.”
The bill comes as the White
House is trying to get Congress to
sign off on a $3.7 billion emer-
gency spending request to deal
with the situation at the border by
adding more immigration judges
and detention facilities, among
other steps.
Republicans have made clear
they won’t agree to such spending
without policy changes along the
lines of what Cornyn and Cuellar
are seeking, and the White House
has indicated support for some
such changes. But immigrant
advocacy groups and key Senate
Democrats are opposed, making it
unclear if a deal can be struck in
the three weeks that remain before
Congress leaves Washington for
its annual August recess.
The Cornyn-Cuellar bill would
amend a 2008 law passed to
address victims of sex trafficking.
That legislation guaranteed pro-
tections to unaccompanied youths
arriving here from “noncontigu-
ous” countries — anywhere except
Mexico or Canada. The existing
law requires such youths to be
turned over to the custody of the
Health and Human Services
Department within 72 hours, and
from there they are generally
placed with family members or
others while awaiting a long-dis-
tant court hearing they may never
The Cornyn-Cuellar bill would
allow Central American kids to be
treated the same as those from
Mexico, whose people can be sent
back over the border quickly
unless they are able to persuade
Border Patrol agents that they
have a fear of return, meriting fur-
ther screening.
White House and Obama admin-
istration officials have said they
support this change, but in face of
objections from allies in the
immigrant advocacy community
they have yet to propose it offi-
Spokesman Josh Earnest said
the White House welcomes “con-
structive engagement from
Republicans” but will wait to see
the actual legislation.

Redwood City police Sgt. Neil Uyeda said
anyone with a missed DUI court date should
go to court on their own.
“If you don’t, that warrant isn’t going

cracking down on nut thefts
MODESTO — ACentral California county
is going after walnut thieves.
Stanislaus County supervisors are set to
consider an ordinance on Tuesday that would
require anyone buying, selling or possess-
ing walnuts for commercial purposes to
show proof of ownership. The proof of own-
ership would require more information than
what state officials currently mandate.
The ordinance would also establish a buy-
ing period for nuts.
It comes as farmers have reported an
uptick in walnut thefts. The nuts’ price of
six cents each along with the ease with
which they can be gathered have made them
a target. Five other California counties have

Tuesday • July 15, 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.

Who Or What Is Gladstone And

By Josef Federman and Maggie Michael
JERUSALEM — Egypt presented a cease-
fire plan Monday to end a week of heavy
fighting between Israel and Hamas militants
in the Gaza Strip that has left at least 185
people dead, and both sides said they were
seriously considering the proposal.
The late-night offer by Egypt marked the
first sign of a breakthrough in international
efforts to end the conflict.
Hamas’ top leader in Gaza confirmed there
was “diplomatic movement,” while Israel’s
policy-making Security Cabinet was set to
discuss the proposal early Tuesday. Arab
foreign ministers discussed the plan
Monday night at an emergency meeting in
Cairo, and U.S. Secretary of State John
Kerry was expected in the region Tuesday.
Egypt’s Foreign Ministry announced the
three-step plan starting at 9 a.m. (0600
GMT, 2 a.m. EDT) with a cease-fire to go
into effect within 12 hours of “uncondition-
al acceptance” by the two sides. That would
be followed by the opening of Gaza’s border
crossings and talks in Cairo between the
sides within two days, according to the
Gaza’s crossings should be opened for
people and goods “once the security situa-
tion becomes stable,” according to a copy
of the proposal obtained by the Associated
The United States welcomed the cease-fire
plan. White House spokeswoman
Bernadette Meehan said the U.S. hopes the
plan will lead to calm being restored as
soon as possible and that escalation won’t
benefit Israelis or Palestinians.
Israel launched the offensive July 8,
saying it was a response to weeks of
heavy rocket fire out of Hamas-ruled
Gaza. The Health Ministry in Gaza said
185 people, including dozens of civil-
ians, have been killed, and more than
1,000 people wounded.
There have been no Israelis killed,
although several have been wounded by
rocket shrapnel, including two sisters, ages
11 and 13, who were seriously hurt Monday.
Ahead of the Egyptian announcement, there
appeared to be no slowdown in the fighting,
with Hamas for the first time launching an
unmanned drone into Israeli airspace that
was shot down.
The Israeli military said 3 rockets were
fired at the southern city of Eilat early
Tuesday morning, lightly injuring two peo-
ple and sparking a fire. The military said it
did not immediately know who was behind
the rocket fire. Previous rocket attacks on
Eilat were from radical Islamic militants in
the neighboring Sinai Peninsula.
The violence followed the kidnappings
and killings of three Israeli teenagers in the
West Bank last month, as well as the subse-
quent kidnapping and killing of a
Palestinian teenager in an apparent revenge
attack, along with Israeli raids against
Hamas militants and infrastructure in the
West Bank.
Israeli officials have said the goal of the
military campaign is to restore quiet to
Israel’s south, which has absorbed hundreds
of rocket strikes, and that any cease-fire
would have to include guarantees of an
extended period of calm.
Hamas officials say they will not accept
“calm for calm.” The group is demanding an
easing of an Israeli-Egyptian blockade that
has ground Gaza’s economy to a standstill
and that Israel release dozens of prisoners
who were arrested in a recent West Bank
crackdown following the abductions of the
Israeli youths.
With the death toll mounting, both sides
have come under increasing international
pressure to halt the fighting.
Egypt Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri
said there is “no alternative but return to the
truce” of November 2012, and added that
Egypt contacted all the parties, including
the Palestinian leadership, different
Palestinian factions, and Israeli authorities
in addition to Arab and international par-
ties. Such contacts led to shaping up the
proposal which called for cease-fire.
“Egypt stresses the international respon-
sibility toward what is happening in
Palestine,” he said.
In a speech broadcast on Al-Jazeera,
Ismail Haniyeh, a Hamas leader in Gaza,
confirmed there was “diplomatic move-
“The problem is not going back to the
agreement on calm because we want this
aggression to stop,” he said. “The siege
must stop and Gaza people need to live in
dignity. ”
An Israeli official said Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu would convene his
Security Cabinet on Tuesday morning to
discuss the proposal. He spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because he was not
authorized to talk to the media.
Naftali Bennett, a member of the Security
Cabinet, said he would oppose the propos-
al, calling it “good for Hamas and bad for
“Acease-fire at the present time shows the
government’s weakness,” he said in a state-
ment. “Acease-fire now will create a bigger
campaign against the south of the country
and more rocket attacks in another year. ”
Egypt, the first Arab state to reach peace
with Israel, often serves as a mediator
between Israel and Hamas.

LOS ANGELES — Afederal officer fired his
weapon once at men in a truck as they fled a
pro-Israel rally in Los Angeles after using
wooden poles bearing Palestinian flags to hit
protesters, authorities said Monday.
The incident, which resulted in four arrests
and no injuries, occurred at the rally on
Sunday outside the Federal Building in
The rally was held as Israel continued an
offensive against Hamas that had killed 160
people and forced thousands of Palestinian
residents to flee their homes.
Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have
launched more than 800 rockets at Israel.
The pro-Israel rally in Los Angeles attracted
as many as 1,800 people, including some
pro-Palestinian demonstrators. Several were
in a truck with a Palestinian flag when a pro-
Israel demonstrator grabbed the flag and
stepped on it, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s
Sgt. Dave Valentine said.
The men in the truck confronted the demon-
strators and struck multiple people with their
flagpoles, Valentine said.
An officer who typically provides security
for federal buildings tried to stop the four men
from attempting to flee and fired a shot from
his service weapon, Federal Protective
Service spokeswoman Jacqueline Yost said in
a statement.
The name of the officer was not released.
Yost had no further details on what the offi-
cer was aiming at or what steps were taken
before the weapon was discharged.
An ambulance was called for a woman who
was injured after apparently being hit by the
men, Yost said. Los Angeles fire spokesman
Erik Scott said no one was transported to a
Police later caught up with the truck, and
four men were arrested and booked on suspi-
cion of assault with a deadly weapon,
Valentine said.

ABUJA, Nigeria — The Pakistani teen
who survived a Taliban assassination
attempt in 2012 marked her 17th birthday
Monday with a visit to Nigeria and urged
Islamic extremists to free the 219 school-
girls who were kidnapped there, calling
them her “sisters.”
Malala Yousafzai, who has become an
international symbol for women’s rights in
the face of hard-line Islam, said Nigeria’s
president promised to meet for the first time
with the abducted girls’ parents.
“My birthday wish this year is ‘Bring
Back Our Girls’ now and alive,” she said,
using the social media slogan that has been
picked up around the world to demand free-
dom for the girls, who were abducted by the
extremist group Boko Haram in April from
a school in the remote northeast Nigerian
town of Chibok.
Malala appealed directly to their captors
as she held hands with some of the girls
who escaped.
“Lay down your weapons. Release your
sisters. Release my sisters. Release the
daughters of this nation. Let them be free.
They have committed no crime.”
She added: “You are misusing the name of
Islam ... Islam is a religion of peace.”
Malala also spoke against the custom of
child brides in her home country, a tradi-
tion common in Nigeria, too. Boko Haram
has threatened to sell some of the girls as
brides if its fighters are not freed.
“Protect girls from cruelty,” she said in a
speech, explaining that girls should not be
forced to marry or to leave school to
become brides “when they should be girls,”
or to give birth to children “when they
themselves are children.”
Boko Haram attacks continued over the
weekend with witnesses blaming the group
for the bombing of a major bridge on a
northeast Nigerian highway that further
limits access to its base camps in the
Sambisa Forest, where it is believed to be
holding some of the girls.
Gunmen destroyed most of the bridge on
the road between Maiduguri and Biu on
Saturday night, making it impossible for
vehicles to cross, the spokesman for the
Nigerian Vigilante Group, Abbas Gava,
told the Associated Press.
Malala met Monday with Nigeria’s
President Goodluck Jonathan and told
reporters that the president “promised me
that the girls will be returned as soon as
She described an emotional meeting
Sunday with some of the girls’ parents.
“I could see tears in their eyes. They were
hopeless. But they seem to have this hope
in their hearts,” and they were asking if
they could meet the president.
Jonathan has not met with any of the par-
ents, though some regularly make the dan-
gerous drive from Chibok to join activists
who have held daily rallies in Abuja.
When the activists tried to march peace-
fully to the presidential villa in May, they
were blocked by soldiers and police.
Jonathan canceled a planned trip to Chibok
that same month.
On Monday, he told Malala that criticism
that his government is not doing enough is
“wrong and misplaced,” according to a
presidential statement.
“The great challenge in rescuing the
Chibok girls is the need to ensure that they
are rescued alive,” he said, insisting his
government is “actively pursuing all feasi-
ble options” to achieve their safe return.
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau put
out a new video Sunday in which he repeat-
ed demands that the government release
detained insurgents in exchange for the
girls’ freedom.
“Nigerians are saying ‘Bring Back Our
Girls,’ and we are telling Jonathan to bring
back our arrested warriors, our army,” he
said in the video, which was obtained by
the AP through similar channels used for
previous messages.
Jonathan so far has refused, despite
pleas from the parents.
Since the mass abduction, Boko Haram
has increased the number and deadliness of
its attacks with a two-pronged approach
— bombing cities and towns and a
scorched-earth strategy in villages, gun-
ning down villagers, looting livestock
and burning down huts.
In the new video, Shekau crowed over
recent victories, including two explo-
sions at a fuel depot in Lagos that the gov-
ernment tried to cover up. It would be the
first reported bombing by Boko Haram in
Lagos — Nigeria’s commercial capital, an
Atlantic port and probably the continent’s
most populous city with some 20 million
people. The attack also raises fears that
the insurgency is spreading beyond its
stronghold at the opposite end of the
At least four people died in the June 25
blasts, including an alleged female suicide
bomber, according to Western diplomats
who spoke on condition of anonymity
because of the sensitivity of the issue.
Shekau also claimed responsibility for
another bomb that went off hours before at
the biggest shopping mall in Nigeria’s
capital, Abuja, killing at least 21 people.
Pakistani teen seeks release of Nigerian girls

LONDON — The Church of England ended
one of its longest and most divisive disputes
Monday with an overwhelming vote in favor
of allowing women to become bishops.
The church’s national assembly, known as
the General Synod, voted for the historic
measure, reaching the required two-thirds
majority in each of its three different houses.
In total, 351 members of the three houses
approved of the move. Only 72 voted against
and 10 abstained.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby
said the long-awaited change marks the com-
pletion of a process that started more than 20
years ago with the ordination of women as
priests. He called for tolerance and love for
those traditionalists who disagree with the

this vote I am also mindful of whose within

into such a senior position in the church
goes against the Bible. Others warned that
the church should not be guided by secular
Lay member Lorna Ashworth, who did not
support the move, said the church has entered
new territory. “This is something we have to
work out as we go along,” she said.
The Church of England represents diverse
religious groups from conservative evangel-
icals to supporters of gay marriage. Major
changes can take years, even decades to bring
Two years ago similar legislation narrowly
failed to reach the two-thirds majority with
lay members, despite the approval from
bishops and clergy.
After that vote failed, the church worked to
build trust with its lay members, who lagged
behind church leaders on the question of
female bishops, and make the legislation
more acceptable to opponents.
At the same time the church came under
increasing pressure from the outside to
reform in favor of women. Some of those
who changed their vote this time around said
they did not want to block changes the
majority was happy with.
Monday’s vote marks the latest advance of
women in the church hierarchy.
The General Synod ruled in 1975 there was
no fundamental objection to women becom-
ing priests, but it took nearly two decades for
the first women to be ordained.
Things are likely to move faster for aspir-
ing female bishops. Welby told the BBC he
expects the first woman bishop in the Church
of England by next year.
He was less sure when asked if there will be
a female Archbishop of Canterbury in his
lifetime: “I’ve no idea. I’d be delighted if I
The Church of England was established by
King Henry VIII who appointed himself as its
head in 1534. The government still formally
appoints the Archbishop of Canterbury, the
spiritual leader of the church, and Queen
Elizabeth II serves as its supreme governor.
Parliament maintains a role in church
affairs, and will be called upon to ratify the
female bishop legislation. Some 26 bishops
are allocated seats in the House of Lords.
The Church of England is part of the glob-
al Anglican Communion with 77 million
members in more than 160 countries. The
Episcopal Church in the Unites States was
the first member to have a woman bishop and
is now led by a woman.

In answer to the letter in the July 5-
6 issue of the Daily Journal by Mr.
Guerrero titled “Cheneys blame
Obama,” Guerrero states, “we went to
war based on a mountain of lies, chief
among those that were Saddam
Hussein was in possession of
weapons of mass destruction.” That
was a lie? He gassed and killed 300
Kurds. Isn’t gas a weapon of mass
destruction? When an invasion was
imminent by the United States, he
trucked his massive supply to Syria,
and that’s the gas that Obama “drew a
red line” about, but did nothing. So
please Mr. Guerrero, no more of those
Democrat chestnuts about “Bush and
Cheney lied.”

Suggested payment
for college athletes
The following proposal is an
attempt to solve the question of “pay-
ing college athletes.” The pay would
apply to college football — Division
I teams only. To qualify for compen-
sation, a varsity football player must
complete a four-year program and
must graduate with a degree. On that
basis, payment would include a six-
month season, starting with August
through January. Compensation
would include $2,000 per month for a
six-month season, totaling $12,000.
Completion of four years would total
$48,000. The payment is in the form
of an insurance policy, payable at the
completion of four seasons. Atotal of
$48,000 insurance policy would start
at graduation time. The “policy” must
remain in force for 20 years. At that
time, the “policy” can be cashed out.
By this time, the cash can be used for
offspring college expenses.
This compensation offer would
only apply to the football program.
Other sports would apply in the
future, based upon the success of this
football program. Of course, this
plan would be subject to fine-tuning.
Also, the legality of this program
should be established.

Objectivity in reporting
The goal of good journalism is
surely objectivity in news reporting.
I question the Daily Journal’s con-
formity to this when the front page
headline on the July 12-13 edition
reads “Israel shows no sign of letting
up” while the headline of the news
article itself on page 16 reads, “No
end to Israeli offensive.” What hap-
pened to objectivity and what hap-
pened to those almost 1,000 rockets
consistently and indiscriminately
fired by Hamas at the heart of Israeli
population centers?

Living in peace
As more and more people through-
out the world are caught up in war and
desolation, the ongoing plea from
Pope Francis for men, women and
children everywhere to pray for peace
and reconciliation becomes increas-
ingly urgent. Speaking with simple
truth and honesty, Pope Francis clear-
ly sees and understands the need for
each of us to have the faith and the
courage to pray and advocate unceas-
ingly for peace.
In his graceful and powerful words,
Francis tells us “while peace is a gift
from God, it is also built out of the
day-to-day hard work of individuals.”

Letters to the editor
The Commercial
Appeal, Memphis, Tennessee
Unemployment in the United States
fell in June to 6.1 percent from 6.3
percent in May, the lowest rate since
the fall of 2008. That’s when finan-
cial giant Lehman Brothers collapsed,
taking with it in house-of-cards fash-
ion other Wall Street firms and a good
chunk of the auto industry, along with
a lot of other luckless companies.
That prompted an unprecedented
government bailout that pumped bil-
lions of dollars into banks and busi-
nesses and continues even to this day,
in much-diminished form, through the
Federal Reserve’s bond buying pro-
gram. Now, thanks to the robust eco-
nomic recovery, that program may be
nearing its end.
The economy added 288,000 jobs
last month and 2.5 million jobs in
the last 12, the fastest annual growth
since 2006. According to The
Associated Press, the 200,000-plus
monthly job gains over the past five
months have been the best stretch
since the 1990s tech boom —
although we must hope this growth
comes to a better ending than the sub-
sequent tech bust.
Job gains were spread across the
economy — factories, retailers, finan-
cial firms, restaurants and bars all
added substantially to their payrolls.
And employment got a boost from
another surprising quarter — govern-
ment hiring, which began to tail off
in 2007 and began shedding employ-
ees every year from 2009 to 2013.
Public-sector hiring has increased by
54,000 jobs so far this year, good
news for hollowed-out local and state
The first-quarter 2.9 percent decline
in gross domestic product is increas-
ingly looking like a weather-related
anomaly. Economists polled by the
British newspaper The Guardian
seemed to agree that the world’s
largest economy is in good shape
with strong underlying momentum.
There are two other anomalies that
are perhaps cause for worry. Wage
growth has remained at an anemic 2
percent a year during the recovery,
well below the historical average of
3.5 percent. The U.S. economy
depends heavily on consumer spend-
ing and 2 percent a year is not going
to do much to help that. Some think
wages will pick up along with the
economy, a view that seems to have
not yet caught on with employers.
The other anomaly is that work-
force participation — the number of
Americans working or actively look-
ing for work — is stuck at a low of
just over 62 percent. The problem is
no longer purely economic; the jobs
are there, and employers are hiring. It
might be structural: workers stuck in
the wrong place or with the wrong
skills. Or it could be societal: Older
workers who lost their jobs and are
content to scrape along until retire-
ment age and Social Security or des-
perate workers who are willing to
work off the books.
Abooming economy solves all
kinds of problems and ultimately
these may be two of them.

seriously. As the economic bubble once
again swells, Bay Area roads congest fur-
ther, rents soar and home ownership becomes even
more elusive for those outside the tech jackpot unwill-
ing or unable to crowd multiple bodies into a studio
apartment, sell a kidney, inherit well or marry and
divorce better. The average price of a San Mateo
County home according to May data is $1.13 million.
Maybe make that two kidneys plus some plasma, then.
Point being, the astronomical cost of living in this
corner of the state often leads those outside it to won-
der what in the heck is so fantastic about the Peninsula
that folks are willing to forgo food and the ability to
pad a savings account simply for the opportunity to
call San Mateo County
home. Is there a hidden
Fountain of Youth? Do the
trees actually grow money?
Are those mints left with the
restaurant bill actually some
sort of happy pill?
Joking aside, it is under-
standable to see why others
might not see what makes
San Mateo County tick.
Frankly, it is also easy for
residents to grow comfy in
their day-to-day existence and forget about the region’s
hidden gems. Perhaps it’s time to take a look around
and remind yourself and everybody else what is so
great about this place.
Literally, seven years ago this month I proposed
forming a list of the Seven Wonders of San Mateo
County. Why should the rest of the world horde all the
designated places one should see before signing off
from this life, I figured. At the time — remember this
was 2007 — I offered a few humble suggestions befit-
ting the county and the time period: Tom the Tree in
Burlingame, the proposed but never accepted Peace
Pole of Belmont, the South San Francisco sign, the
wooden owl of the White Oak neighborhood, IKEA i n
East Palo Alto and Estrella Benavides’ San Mateo home
emblazoned with brightly hued messages from God.
In response, readers offered their own outpouring of
suggestions both serious and tongue in cheek, of local
competition for the Taj Mahal and Hanging Gardens of
Babylon. One suggested the Redwood City parking
meters for the pure mystery of how the then-new sys-
tem worked. Another included the Kmart store at
Concar Drive and Delaware Street, noting that it
seemed to be the only Kmart store to have survived its
financial crash. Flash forward seven years to now and
the Kmart is about to bid farewell. Like those other
Seven Wonders, the Kmart will soon be nothing but a
historical notation.
Aside from the heavy dose of snark, the call for won-
ders also turned up some very serious contenders for
what makes San Mateo County special. The Father
Junipero Serra statue at the Interstate 280 rest stop,
the Crystal Springs Reservoir, the Pulgas Water
Temple, Bair Island. Areader mentioned the Igloo
House in Hillsborough. I’d never before even heard of
t hat .
So indulge me again, dear readers. What else is out
there in San Mateo County, wondrous, quirky, special
or kooky enough to help explain why newbies want to
come and old-timers want to stay. Are those looking
for a little older lady love misguided by the preponder-
ance of mountain lions? Is the doggie diner head at the
Peninsula Humane Society a fun thing to show visi-
tors? You can’t find that in central Kansas. Maybe the
reported ghosts traipsing through the Carolands
Mansion or Union Cemetery is what does it for you. Or
maybe what makes San Mateo County special is specif-
ic to your needs — that corner barber that still delivers
straight-edge shaves, those certain purveyors at the
farmers’ market, that perfect spot for stargazing that
nobody else seems to know about it.
Lots of people wonder what it is about San Mateo
County. Help give them some answers.

Big movers
By Alex Veiga
Stocks shook off last week’s dol-
drums and finished sharply higher
Monday, driven by a round of corpo-
rate deal news and strong earnings
from Citigroup.
Investors cheered AECOM
Technology’s $4 billion acquisition
of engineering and construction serv-
ices company URS Corp., sending
URS’ stock up 11.6 percent and
AECOM 8.6 percent.
Citigroup rose 3 percent after the
bank turned in better-than-expected
results and disclosed it has agreed to
pay $7 billion to settle a federal probe
into its mortgage securities business.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman
Sachs, due to report earnings Tuesday,
also got a lift.
All told, the three major stock
indexes notched their second gain in
two days.
That’s a turnaround from last week,
when the Standard & Poor’s 500 index
lost 0.9 percent, its worst showing
since April.
Concern about Portugal’s Espirito
Santo International, which reportedly
missed a debt payment last week,
harked back to issues that spawned
Europe’s debt crisis.
On Monday, investors appeared to
be reassured any problems would be
“Investors are saying if this
Portugal thing really isn’t significant
from an impact standpoint, and the
earnings are coming in good ... stocks
ought to be going higher,” said Phil
Orlando, chief equity strategist at
Federated Investments.
The major indexes rose in premarket
trading as investors digested
Citigroup’s earnings. They opened in
the green and held steady through the
entire session.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
rose 9.53 points, or 0.5 percent, to
1,977.10. The index is down 0.4 per-
cent from its most recent all-time high
of 1,985.44 set July 3.
Nine of the 10 sectors in the S&P
500 rose, led by energy stocks.
Utilities fell the most.
The Dow Jones industrial average
added 111.61 points, or 0.7 percent, to
17,055.42. The Dow is down slightly
from its July 3 record of 17,068.65.
The Nasdaq composite gained 24.93
points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,440.42.
The three stock indexes are all up for
the year.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note rose to 2.54 percent from 2.52
percent late Friday.
With the market trading near all-time
highs, investors will be focused this
week on a large number of corporate
earnings, including quarterly reports
from General Electric, Google, Bank
of America and Johnson & Johnson.
So far investors like what they see.
“We got started off with a very good
report out of Citibank this morning,”
Orlando said. “And economic news
this week — retail sales, capacity uti-
lization, housing data, confidence data
— is all supposed to be pretty good.”
Citigroup rose $1.42, or 3 percent,
to $48.42.
Several other big investment banks
also rose. Morgan Stanley added 40
cents, or 1.3 percent, to $31.81, while
Goldman Sachs rose $2.20, or 1.3 per-
cent, to $167. JPMorgan Chase
climbed 49 cents, or 0.9 percent, to

More people with jobs means more

sumer spending and growth.

fairly impressive jobs numbers,” said

Stocks move higher on earnings

A growing number of U.S. compa-
nies are looking to trim their tax bills
by combining operations with foreign
businesses in a trend that may eventu-
ally cost the federal government bil-
lions of dollars in revenue.
Generic drugmaker Mylan Inc. said
Monday it will become part of a new
company organized in the Netherlands
in a $5.3 billion deal to acquire some
of Abbott Laboratories’ generic-drugs
business. The deal is expected to lower
Mylan’s tax rate to about 20 percent to
21 percent in the first full year and to
the high teens after that.
The Canonsburg, Pennsylvania-
company’s deal follows a path
explored by several other U.S. drug-
makers in recent months. AbbVie Inc.
has entered talks with Shire Plc. over a
roughly $53.68 billion deal that would
lead to a lower tax rate and a company
organized on the British island of
But drugmakers aren’t the only com-
panies looking overseas for better tax
Last month, U.S. medical device
maker Medtronic Inc. said that it had
agreed to buy Ireland-based competitor
Covidien for $42.9 billion in cash and
stock. The combined company would
have executive offices in Ireland,
which has a 12.5 percent corporate
income tax rate. And drugstore chain
Walgreen Co. — which bills itself as
“America’s premier pharmacy” — also
is considering a similar move with
Swiss health and beauty retailer
Alliance Boots.
These tax-lowering overseas deals,
which are called inversions, have
raised concerns among some U.S. law-
makers over the potential for lost tax
revenue. But business experts say U.S.
companies that find the right deal have
to consider inversions due to the
heavy tax burden they face back home.
At 35 percent, the United States
offers the highest corporate income
tax rate in the industrialized world. By
contrast, the European Union has an
average tax rate of 21 percent, said
Donald Goldman, a professor at
Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey
School of Business.
In addition to the higher rate, the
United States also taxes the income
companies earn overseas once they
bring it back home. The tax is the dif-
ference between the rate the company
paid where it earned the income and the
U.S. rate.
U.S. companies look overseas for tax bill relief
By Eric Tucker
WASHINGTON — Citigroup has
agreed to pay $7 billion to settle a fed-
eral investigation into its handling of
risky subprime mortgages, admitting
to a pattern of deception that Attorney
General Eric Holder said “shattered
lives” and contributed to the worst
financial crisis in decades, the Justice
Department said Monday.
The settlement represents a moment
of reckoning for one of the country’s
biggest and most significant banks,
which is now accountable for providing
some financial support to Americans
whose lives were dismantled by the
largest economic meltdown since the
Great Depression.
In addition to a $4 billion civil
penalty being paid to the federal gov-
ernment, the bank will also pay $2.5
billion in consumer relief to help bor-
rowers who lost their homes to foreclo-
sure and about $500 million to settle
claims from state attorneys general and
the Federal Deposit Insurance
The agreement does not preclude the
possibility of criminal prosecutions
for the bank or individual employees in
the future, Holder said.
The $7 billion settlement, which rep-
resents about half of Citigroup’s $13.7
billion profit last year, is the latest sub-
stantial penalty sought for a bank or
mortgage company at the epicenter of
the housing crisis. The Justice
Department, criticized for not being
aggressive enough in targeting finan-
cial misconduct, has in the last year
reached a $13 billion deal with
JPMorgan Chase & Co., the nation’s
largest bank, and also sued Bank of
America Corp. for misleading investors
in its sale of mortgage-linked securi-
Yet the settlement packages pale in
size compared to the broader damages
caused by the Great Recession. The
unemployment rate spiked to 10 per-
cent as millions lost their jobs and
their homes, causing losses that totaled
in the trillions of dollars. Public advo-
cacy groups criticized the settlement as
a sweetheart deal.
“In the context of the damage done,
the damage even described by the attor-
ney general, we’re not even in the same
ballpark,” said Bartlett Naylor, a finan-
cial policy advocate for Public Citizen,
which represents consumer interests.
The settlement stems from the sale of
toxic securities made up of subprime
mortgages, which led to both the hous-
ing boom and bust that triggered the
Great Recession at the end of 2007.
Banks, including Citigroup, minimized
the risks of subprime mortgages when
packaging and selling them to mutual
funds, investment trusts and pensions,
as well as other banks and investors.
The securities contained residential
mortgages from borrowers who were
unlikely to be able to repay their loans,
yet were publicly promoted as relative-
ly safe investments until the housing
market collapsed in 2006 and 2007 and
investors suffered billions of dollars in
Citigroup to pay $7 billion in
subprime mortgages probe
ECB’s Draghi: Stronger euro could hurt recovery
FRANKFURT, Germany — European Central Bank head
Mario Draghi said Monday that a stronger euro would put
at risk the shaky recovery in the 18 countries that use the
shared currency.
Draghi made the remark to legislators in the European
Parliament in Strasbourg amid worries that the modest
rebound in Europe is stalling. Data showed industrial pro-
duction fell by 1.1 percent in May in the currency zone.
Astronger euro would hurt export-dependent businesses.
However Draghi offered no new steps to boost the econo-
my beyond the raft of measures the bank announced on
May 8. Markets shrugged off the remark and the euro trad-
ed little changed at around $1.36.
At that level, it is down from its 2014 peak of just below
$1.40, its highest in 2 1/2 years.
Draghi said that while the bank does not target any par-
ticular exchange rate it would monitor the effect of any
appreciation of the euro because that would affect the infla-
tion rate, the bank’s chief policy target. He said that the
exchange rate “remains an important driver of future infla-
tion in the euro area,” adding that in the present context,
an appreciated exchange rate is a risk to the sustainability
of the recovery. ”
Draghi gave little indication that the bank was ready to
move beyond its current efforts to raise inflation and spur
the economy. The ECB has raised the possibility of buy-
ing financial assets such as government bonds to pump
new money into the economy.
Oil barely changed; U.S. gas
prices at three-month lows
Lacking any catalysts, the price of oil barely changed
Monday. Meanwhile, gasoline prices in the U.S. slipped
to three-month lows.
Benchmark U.S. crude for August delivery rose 8 cents at
$100.91 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
The Nymex contract fell 3.1 percent last week and is down
4.3 percent so far in July. Brent crude, a benchmark for
international oils, gained 45 cents to $107.71 on the ICE
Futures exchange in London.
The average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. is
$3.61 a gallon, the lowest since April 10, according to
AAA. Gas is about 4 cents cheaper than a week ago, but
drivers are still paying around a penny more than at this
time last year.

The Fog City of California wreaked havoc
on Half Moon Bay Joe DiMaggio’s regular
season finale Monday at Pacifica’s
Fairbanks Field.
The Pacifica fog was one major factor in
Half Moon Bay’s 2-1 loss to the San
Francisco Wildcats. The other was Wildcats
starting pitcher Chad Johnstone, who was
nails to the strike zone through five innings
of three-hit baseball to earn the win.
Only one of the hits the right-hander sur-
rendered was struck with authority. Half
Moon Bay’s Chet Silveria led off the fifth
with a booming double to left-center.
Silveria eventually scored on an RBI
groundout off the bat of Ryan Mattel.
It was the only run San Francisco pitchers
would surrender though, as Julian Shallop
worked two innings to close it out, facing
just one over the minimum to earn the save.
All told, the game lasted just one hour, 20
minutes — much in part to Johnstone’s
rapid pace on the mound.
“He was throwing strikes; that was key, ”
Wildcats manager Chris Gaggero said.
“When he’s working good, that’s how he is
… and tonight is the best he’s thrown for
me in the three years I’ve had him.”
With the Wildcats composed entirely of
St. Ignatius players, Johnstone is one of
four Pacifica natives on roster. The Wildcats
also tout four San Mateo residents: Nick
Russo, Brendan Niland, Dominic Tognotti
and Riley Krook.

MINNEAPOLIS — Oakland’s Yoenis
Cespedes became the first repeat winner of the
All-Star home run derby in 15 years, powering
his way past Cincinnati’s Todd Frazier by a
whopping 9-1 in the final round Monday
Ken Griffey Jr. took the title in 1998 and
With a serious, determined look on his face
the whole time, Cespedes finished with 28
homers. That was four fewer than last year,
when he beat Washington’s Bryce Harper 9-8
in the final round.
Cespedes saved his best for last, a 452-foot
blast to the third deck above left field that offi-
cially measured as the longest of the night.
Athletics third base coach Mike Gallego
again pitched to Cespedes, who went deep 32
times in last year’s derby at Citi Field in New
York. Gallego’s arm looked nearly out of gas
by the final round, which started after 10:30
p.m. local time.
Cespedes topped Toronto’s Jose Bautista,
and Frazier surprisingly beat Miami’s
Giancarlo Stanton in the semifinals.
Bautista and Stanton each earned a bye to the
semifinals under the new bracketed format,
which gave each player seven outs and pitted
the survivors from each side in the final round.
Bautista went deep 10 times in the first round,
keeping the fans in the second deck above left
field on their toes, and Stanton hit six.
That was all, though.
After a long wait for his next turn, Stanton
put up a zero in the semifinals and let Frazier
advance with only one.
Oh, but Stanton’s six were beauties.
One landed in the third deck above left field,
about a half-dozen rows shy of the very top of
the ballpark. Another reached the second deck
above the center field batter’s eye, a place never
touched by a ball during an actual game here.
Stanton has been credited with three of the 15
longest home runs in the majors this year,
including the second-farthest at 484 feet.
Bautista, the ALcaptain, has 11 home runs in
14 regular-season games here, the most by any
visiting player. That’s only one less than
Twins cornerstone Joe Mauer, who has played
284 career games at Target Field.

Donaldson in a tiebreaker after each finished
Cespedes still HR Derby king
Yoenis Cespedes hit nine home runs in the finals of the 2014 MLBHome Run Derby to win the title for the second straight year.The A’s slug-
ger is the first person to win the Derby crown in back-to-back years since Ken Griffey Jr. did so in 1998 and ’99.
Bob Hammer, a 1986 Carlmont High
School graduate and founder of the Have
ABall golf tournament, began his
Monday at 3:30 a.m. as he prepared for
the 10th Annual Have ABall Golf
Tournaments Presented by Amgen and
Synaptics at Crow Canyon Country Club
in San Ramon.
After hosting 600
golfers in two rounds
of 150 each, Hammer
won’t get home until
well past the sun
goes down. That
doesn’t factor in the
13 months it takes to
produce two tourna-
ments — there will
be a second Have A
Ball tournament in
September also at
Crow Canyon C.C.
By the time it’s all said and done,
Hammer, a two-time testicular cancer sur-
vivor, will have raised close to $300,000
between the two fundraisers this year,
putting him at nearly $2 million he has
raised for cancer research, among other
things, in the 10 years of producing the
“I’m at $1.9 million (raised since
2005). Really?” Hammer said. “It’s very
rewarding. It’s very cool. It’s a bit of a
journey. ”
Hammer admits there are times when he
wonders if it’s all worth the effort, but
those times are fleeting. His Have ABall
fundraisers have made him among the
largest private donors in the country in
the fight against cancer and there are
many organizations that depend on his
yearly donations.
Have ABall is a labor of love for
Hammer, his family and the board of
directors who help him run his organiza-
tion. In addition to having raised nearly
$2 million, he makes donations to 20
different cancer organizations, ranging
from the Lance Armstrong Foundation to

HOYLAKE, England — Phil Mickelson
rolled long putts across the practice green
in front of the Royal Liverpool clubhouse,
some of them going in, most of them the
right distance. He chirped to the caddie of
Brandt Snedeker about their money game, a
Mickelson tradition at the majors.
Lefty was in good spirits Monday at the
British Open, except for having to return
the claret jug.
Even that allowed him
to reflect on a year of
keeping golf’s oldest tro-
phy, and the confidence
he finally has when he
plays links golf.
“It’s a different feeling
for me coming over here
now having won this
tournament,” Mickelson
said. “The way I felt was,
‘Am I ever going to break through and play
well on links golf and win an Open
Championship?’ Now I know that I can. I
know that I’ve done it, and it takes a lot of
pressure off me.”
Confidence in links golf? Yes.
In his game? That takes a little more
Not even Mickelson would have imagined
when he left Muirfield last summer that he
would not have won another tournament
anywhere in the world. This is the longest
he has gone without winning in five years.
And except for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf
Championship in January, where he was
runner-up, Mickelson hasn’t been particu-
larly close.
He has missed three cuts. He withdrew
twice after narrowly making the cut because
of injuries in San Diego and San Antonio.
At the Masters, where he is a three-time
champion, Mickelson missed the cut for the
first time in 17 years. His lone top 10 on the
PGATour was last August at The Barclays, a
tie for sixth when he closed with a 65.
So why the smile?
Mickelson confident — at least about links golf

By Jamey Keaten
France — After just 10 stages, the
two pre-race favorites have
crashed out of the Tour de France.
And Vincenzo Nibali is wasting
little time in showing that he’s
now the man to beat.
On Monday, the Italian narrowly
dodged a spill by Alberto Contador
that left the two-time Tour champi-
on with a fractured shin. Nibali
went on to barrel past a panting
breakaway rider to win a fog-and-
rain coated, up-and-down Stage 10
and recover the yellow jersey that
he had lost only a day earlier.
It didn’t come easy.
“This was the hardest stage I’ve
ever done in a Grand Tour, with
seven climbs and so many crash-
es,” said Nibali.
Contador’s mishap has given
this 101st edition of cycling’s
greatest event a dubious distinc-
tion of being the first in recent
memory to force out its two top
stars to crash injuries. Five
stages earlier, reigning champ
Chris Froome quit with a broken
wrist and hand sustained in a
string of spills.
As the race enters its first rest
day on Tuesday, Nibali — who has
already won the Spanish Vuelta
and Italian Giro — looks on his
way to winning his first Tour with
just under two weeks to go.
When Stage 10 began, many
race pundits — and Nibali himself
— expected Contador to try to
erase his 2 1/2 minute deficit to the
Italian by attacking on the ride to
the finish atop La Planche des
Belles Filles ski resort. As FDJ.FR
team manager Marc Madiot put it:
“This is the day for Contador to
put Nibali into trouble.”
Instead, it was Contador having
the problems.
The 31-year-old Spaniard took a
hard tumble in a high-speed down-
hill run in the Vosges mountains.
After riding about 18 kilometers
(12 miles) in pain, the Tinkoff-
Saxo Bank team leader finally
gave up. He put his foot down, got
off his bike, wiped his eyes and
got into a team car. An X-ray later
showed a shin fracture.
Nibali said he had been ready for
a “duel”.
“I already had a good lead and I
was ready to fight in a big duel
with Alberto,” he said. “Crashes
are part of the sport. I’ve crashed
myself many times in the past
too. It’s a pity that the Tour has
lost two major protagonists.”
The Astana team leader regained
the lead from France’s Tony
Gallopin — who had taken the
yellow jersey off him a day earlier
— in the 161.5-kilometer (100-
mile) trek from eastern Mulhouse
to the steep finish at La Planche
des Belles Filles.
With a final burst of speed in the
last two kilometers (1.2 miles),
Nibali overtook breakaway rider
Joaquim Rodriguez. By the end,
Nibali crossed 15 seconds ahead of
France’s Thibaut Pinot in second
and Spain’s Alejandro Valverde in
third, a further five seconds
The Italian recovers the yellow
jersey that he wore for seven days
after he won the second stage in
the hills of northern England.
Overall, he leads Richie Porte of
Australia by 2 minutes, 23 sec-
onds, and Valverde, who is third,
2:47 back.
“My legs felt good. I knew the
last three kilometers were the
toughest, and that’s when I accel-
erated,” said Nibali, sucking his
thumb in a tribute to his young
daughter as he finished. “I thought
Rodriguez would follow but he
seemed to have trouble.”
A string of crash injuries has
meant that the Tour will have a
first-time winner this year. Andy
Schleck, the 2010 Tour winner,
dropped out before Stage 4 follow-
ing a crash injury a day earlier,
though the Luxembourg rider said
before the race that he wasn’t in
good enough shape to contend
this year.
According to his spokesman,
Contador said he wasn’t exactly
sure what caused the crash —
which happened while he was
speeding downhill at over 70 kph
(about 40 mph) about halfway
through the stage. Contador began
the stage in ninth place overall —
4 minutes, 8 seconds back of
“He explained to me just a few
minutes ago that he (hit) a stone or
a hole in the road or something —
and he crashed,” Contador
spokesman Jacinto Vidarte told
The Associated Press by phone
during the stage. “He couldn’t do
anything about it.”
TVimages showed thick streams
of blood pouring from Contador’s
right knee after the crash, his hip
was scraped up, and the back of his
jersey torn. Team director Bjarne
Riis rushed over and bandaged the
knee. Philippe Mauduit, a team
sporting director, said initial X-
rays showed that a Contador had a
fractured shin.
Contador then sat back down on
the grass bank and changed his
left shoe as riders weaved through
the narrow gap between him and
his bicycle. After several minutes,
he got back in the saddle of a new
bike, and three teammates who had
dropped back escorted him to try
to make up lost time as the pelo-
ton pulled away up the Col du
Platzerwaswel mountain pass.
The Spaniard rode for about
another half-hour, clearly in
pain, and finally stopped, got
off, wiped his eyes and climbed
into a team car.
Nibali said he was riding next to
Contador, and almost went down
“I feared that the Tour might be
over for me too,” the Italian said.
“There were a lot of risks today,
and I’m really sorry for Alberto
Contador. I was right behind him
and luckily I was able to avoid
him. It was on a descent. The road
wasn’t in great condition.
“I don’t know what happened,
but it was just incredible,” said
Nibali. “He fell right in front of
me and was rolling on the floor.
We must have been going about 60
kilometers per hour. ”
There were crashes elsewhere.
Italian rider Michele Scarponi
— Nibali’s Astana teammate —
sustained a heavy crash coming
down from the penultimate climb
up to Col des Chevreres. He mis-
judged a turn and thudded into a
protective crash barrier, flipping
over his bike and colliding with
a spectator, who was unhurt.
Scarponi was able to continue
British rider Geraint Thomas
also crashed but kept racing with
blood pouring out of his left
The race resumes Wednesday
with a slightly hilly 187.5-kilo-
meter (116.3-mile) route from
Besancon to Oyonnax in eastern
France. Stage 11 will feature four
moderate climbs toward the end.
The three-week race ends on
the Champs-Elysees in Paris on
July 27.
Nibali excels at Tour as Contador crashes out
Alberto Contador is attended to after falling during the 10th stage of the Tour de France. Contador is the second
top rider to crash out of the race, with Chris Froome quitting after the fifth stage with a broken wrist.

San Mateo National entered into play
Monday needing a little help from the base-
ball gods in order to continue in the Section
3 10-11-Year-Old All-Stars Baseball
After a first-inning power barrage against
San Lorenzo, National got the divine help it
was looking for when second baseman
Jason Villar chased down a dying quail in
short center field and turned it into a triple
National went on to a 13-7 triumph to
advance through the losers’ bracket into
Tuesday’s championship round. National
will match up with undefeated Tassajara
Valley at Union City’s Veterans Park at 5:30
p.m. needing to win two games after losing
to Tassajara Valley 9-8 in extra innings
Jason Villar’s running catch on the sec-
ond-inning triple play had a tinge of the
miraculous, according to National manager
David Villar.
“Nobody thought Jason was going to get
to that ball … including us,” Coach Villar
Most importantly, the San Lorenzo base
runners didn’t think so. National was enjoy-
ing a 9-0 lead at the time. Ordinarily, that
would seem like plenty of cushion. For a
National team coming off a loss Sunday in
which a late 8-0 lead disappeared against
Tassajara Valley, the National boys were no
doubt hearing footsteps when San Lorenzo
loaded the bases in the second.
“[San Lorenzo] was riled and ready to
mount a comeback,” Coach Villar said.
When the next San Lorenzo batter floated
a blooper into shallow center, it looked as
though it might clear the bases. All of San
Lorenzo’s runners committed to moving up,
but Jason Villar chased down the ball with a
backhanded grab. He pivoted and threw to
shortstop Tyler Berkson at second base for
the second out; Berkson then fired to third
baseman Jack Yuretich to complete the
triple play.
“In little league, I can’t remember the last
time I saw a triple play,” Coach Villar said.
“If we just caught the pop-up, I would have
been happy with that. But I think the base-
ball gods might be smiling on us a little bit.”
National didn’t need any help from Thor:
god of thunder, however, as the offense
brought plenty of thunder of its own.
National jumped out to a first-inning lead by
virtue of three home runs in the inning,
including a momentous one from R.J. Abad.
Abad got National on the board with the
first home run of his life, a two-run shot to
left field. And despite being the smallest
player on the team, the blast was no cheap-
ie, according to Coach Villar.
“He saw a fastball and jumped all over it,”
Coach Villar said. “He hit it to deep left-cen-
ter field. He got all of it. It was no cheapie.
… He’s smaller of stature but big of heart.
Everybody on the team loves him. He plays
110 percent all of the time.”
But National didn’t stop there. Berkson
added a two-run home run to left. Then left-
handed hitting Nico Button went opposite
field to left-center for the team’s third two-
run shot of the frame. National totaled nine
runs in the inning.
Button also proved a hero on the mound,
firing 4 1/3 innings to earn the win. Aday
after National burned through more pitch-
ing than Coach Villar would have liked
through its extra-inning loss, Button’s 85-
pitch performance was epic.
“We were short-handed at pitching
because we lost [Sunday] … and Nico
stepped up and threw an absolute gem for
us,” Coach Villar said.
Berkson emerged in the fifth inning and
worked 1 2/3 innings to close it out, pro-
pelling National into the championship
round. National’s scheduled starter for
Tuesday’s championship matchup is the ace
right-hander Yuretich. If necessary,
National and Tassajara Valley will play
again Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina —
Argentina’s national team was welcomed
home Monday by thousands of fans cele-
brating its gutsy performance in the World
Cup final.
The team arrived in Buenos Aires on a
plane painted with images of the players
and a large sign reading: “Thank you
A river of emotional fans wearing the
white and sky-blue striped jerseys of the
national team, among them a group of
Argentine gauchos on horses, flooded the
road leading from the airport to the football
association complex.
“You showed that through courage, pas-
sion and bringing everything you have and
more to the field you can triumph,”
President Cristina Fernandez said after
greeting all members of the team at the
complex with a hug and a pat on the back.
“You’ve given us values that Argentines,
surrounded by so much triumphalism,
thought were lost. Not only does the one in
first place win; you also win when you show
quality and manage to unite with others to
go forward,” Fernandez said. “That’s why I
wanted to greet you today and thank you on
behalf of 40 million proud Argentines.”
The two-time world champion entered the
title match as the clear underdog after
Germany’s 7-1 thrashing of host Brazil. But
despite complaints about lackluster play
earlier in the tournament, the team led by
captain Lionel Messi showed grit through-
out the 1-0 overtime loss to Germany, creat-
ing several opportunities to score in the
first 90 minutes.
“I’m thankful to everyone. I would have
liked to bring you back the Cup and to be
able to enjoy it. We tried, we gave it our all
but we couldn’t achieve it,” said Messi, who
won the trophy for the tournament’s best
“Despite that, I think we gave a great joy
to the country by reaching this final and fac-
ing our rivals without giving anything
away. ”
Argentina last played in a World Cup final
in 1990, when it lost to West Germany. Four
years earlier, it became world champion for
the second time, led by captain Diego
Maradona, also in a final against the
After Sunday’s final, thousands of sad-
dened but proud Argentines gathered peace-
fully at the iconic Obelisk in downtown
Buenos Aires to applaud their team’s best
World Cup performance in 24 years. Cars
honked staccato rhythms, firecrackers were
tossed into the air and fans of all ages
jumped in place shouting, “Argentina!
Argentina! Argentina!”
“We have nothing to regret, we played
first rate,” said 53-year-old Horacio
Laseiras, carrying his 6-year-old daughter
on his shoulders.
Violence broke out later Sunday night,
forcing riot police to use
tear gas and rubber bullets to
disperse vandals who threw
rocks, destroyed store
fronts, tore down street
lights and even broke into a
theater. Parents with small
children fled in fear.
National security secretary
Sergio Berni said 120 peo-
ple were arrested. The
Buenos Aires emergency
medical service reported on
Monday that 70 people were
treated for injuries, includ-
ing 15 police officers.
The shot at the title united Argentines

highest inflation rates, an encroaching debt
crisis and a corruption scandal that has pen-
etrated deep into the president’s inner cir-
Fernandez, whose approval rating has
plunged in recent months, kept a low profile
during the tournament. She declined an invi-
tation to attend the final, preferring instead
to rest ahead of a summit Tuesday, also in

India and China.

MINNEAPOLIS — Derek Jeter was an elite
shortstop winning World Series champi-
onships not long after many of baseball’s
current greats were born.
With the captain of the New York Yankees
set to retire after the season, Jeter’s 14th
All-Star game will be his last. His first one
as a starter in 2000 was special, as was the
2008 version at Yankee Stadium. So don’t
expect him to declare his final appearance
his favorite, or an experience he’ll find him-
self savoring any more than usual.
“This is a game that I’ve truly always
looked forward to. I’ve appreciate the time
that I’ve had here. So it’s kind of difficult to
say that I’ll try to enjoy it more,” Jeter said
on Monday amid a predictably large crowd
of cameras and reporters during the media
interview session for the American League
Though the Yankees have been hovering
around the .500 mark, Jeter has said many
times he’s only focused on chasing another
championship, not gath-
ering farewell gifts or
reflecting nostalgically
on his exceptional career.
That part has been left up
to everyone else around
the game.
Tampa Bay Rays pitch-
er David Price said Jeter’s
final presence was what
excited him the most
about this year’s event.
“I know the All-Star game isn’t about a
certain player or a certain team, but I feel
like it is. This is about Derek Jeter. And the
National League guys, they understand that
as well,” Price said.
For Minnesota Twins closer Glen Perkins,
Jeter has been one of those “guys you can
tell your grandkids about” pitching to.
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam
Wainwright, who’ll start the All-Star game
for the National League on Tuesday night at
Target Field, will throw his first pitch to
Jeter when the 40-year-old steps to the plate
as the AL leadoff man.
“I’m very excited about it, just to say I
faced the best,” Wainwright said. “And he is
undoubtedly one of the best to ever play his
To Jeter’s left will be second baseman
Robinson Cano, who left the Yankees in the
offseason and signed with the Seattle
“I’m really happy that I’ll be able to be a
part of his final All-Star game and be on the
same team. It’s pretty amazing,” Cano said.
“He’s one of the biggest parts of my career.
He was one of those guys when I first came
up who was there on and off the field.”
To Jeter’s right will be third baseman
Josh Donaldson, who recalled a double he
hit for the Oakland Athletics in his first time
playing against Jeter and the Yankees in
“He was like, ‘Hey, good swing, kid,”’
Donaldson said. “I was like, ‘Thanks, Mr.
Jeter was that wide-eyed youngster in
1998 when he appeared in his first All-Star
game, in Denver.
“Cal was there and I was afraid to say any-
thing, because it’s Cal Ripken,” Jeter said.
“Even though I’d played against him, I bare-
ly had a chance to talk to him.”
Then there was 1999, in Boston.
“They had all the great players come on
the field. I got a tap on my shoulder, and it
was Hank Aaron, and he said he was looking
for me because he wanted to meet me. He
wanted to meet me. That’s something that
stands out. That’s one of the best moments
I’ve had on the baseball field,” Jeter said.
That kind of humility, instilled in him by
his parents as he grew up in Kalamazoo,
Michigan, has compelled Jeter to strike up
such conversations with his peers around
the game. He spoke Monday about being
happy for the players getting their first
taste this week of the All-Star experience,
like Yankees reliever Dellin Betances.
“You try to carry yourself the right way.
I’ve always tried to do that,” Jeter said.
“Then again, at the same time, I am who I
am. I don’t try to be any different. If people
respect you for the way that you carry your-
self, it means a lot to me and it means a lot
to my family. It makes you feel good.”
Derek Jeter, an AL All-Star for the last time

Monday’s pitching matchup turned into a
duel after Half Moon Bay starter Kyle
Harwood navigated through a rocky first
inning. The right-hander lost the strike
zone to walk in the first run, and his defense
betrayed him to allow the second.
Ultimately, Harwood went the distance,
allowing two runs on six hits while striking
out six. He retired the side in order in each of
the last two innings.
But the concentration of fog at Fairmont
Field — located near the peak of Hickey
Boulevard where Pacifica and Daly City meet
— made for difficult visibility, according to
Half Moon Bay manager David Anderson.
“I kind of thought our guys weren’t getting
a good view of the ball with the fog, both at
the plate and in the field,” Anderson said.
It didn’t seem to be a problem for Silveria
in the middle innings though. Half Moon
Bay’s catcher showcased his arm in the
fourth by gunning down the Wildcats’ Asa
Jungries at second base to end the inning.
Then Silveria led off the fifth with the loud-
est swing of the bat of the game for either
team by doubling to set the table for Half
Moon Bay’s only run.
Silveria recently graduated from Half
Moon Bay High School and is planning to
play at Skyline College next season. He
played three years of varsity baseball for
the Cougars, but only caught two of them;
and his two years in the squat did not come
consecutively. Silveria took over behind
the dish midway through his sophomore
season. As a junior, however, his basketball
season ran long when the Half Moon Bay
boys went to the Central Coast Section
championship game. As a result, after join-
ing the baseball team eight games into the
season, he ended up in the outfield.
“[The basketball season] had a ton to do
with it,” Silveria said. “I had no (catching)
reps. I thought I could come in cold turkey
and do as well as I did my sophomore year,
and it didn’t work out.”
Silveria set out to not let the same thing
happen this year though. And the 6-1, 180-
pound senior reemerged behind the plate
while hitting for a .338 average and pacing
the Cougars with 18 RBIs.
“This year I started taking it serious. It’s
fun. It’s my best position,” Silveria said. “I
knew I wanted to play in college and would
have to put time in, and that’s what I did.”
Despite being on the postseason bubble
in the South Peninsula standings, Half
Moon Bay is assured a playoff berth by
virtue of hosting the tournament this sea-
son. The playoffs begin July 26 at Half
Moon Bay High School.

Half Moon Bay catcher Chet Silveria throws
out a would-be base stealer in Monday’s 2-1
loss to the San Francisco Wildcats.
with three in the first round, breezed by
Baltimore’s Adam Jones in the second round.
Frazier topped NL captain Troy Tulowitzki on
the other side.
Colorado’s Justin Morneau, the fan favorite
after 10-plus years and four All-Star games for
the host Twins, was eliminated in the first round.
Morneau returned to his roots, and so did
the event itself, considering the inaugural
contest was held at the Metrodome before
the 1985 All-Star game. Admission then was
a mere $2, slightly less than the $200-and-
up price tags on the derby these days. The
original form was actually a 1960s-era tele-
vision show, featuring sluggers like
Harmon Killebrew of the Twins.
Delayed 54 minutes by light rain on an
unseasonably cool night — even for
Minnesota — with a start-time temperature of
59 degrees, the contest began with a rainbow
protruding from the clouds beyond left-center
field that framed this limestone-encased ball-
park that opened in 2010.
Frazier went first, and while he went deep
twice, he didn’t quite reach the rainbow.
Neither did Twins second baseman Brian
Dozier, the smallest of the participants who
had the backing of the crowd with chants of
his last name during his two-homer round.
“Even my brother he said he got chills,”
said Dozier, one of seven first-time partici-
pants. His brother, Clay, was his pitcher.
The loudest roars were for Morneau, natu-
rally, in his return to the place he called
home until being traded last summer. An
easy pick for Tulowitzki, Morneau checked
the weather forecast as soon as he woke up
to gauge the wind direction. The only left-
hander in the event his year, Morneau’s third
derby appearance brought the fans to their
feet with AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” blaring
in the background.
He hit two in the first round, the only balls
all night that landed in the seats in right.
Frazier hit one more to beat Morneau and
advance in the three-swing tiebreaker.

fighting the disease. He has created and
awarded eight oncology nursing grants is
association with Sequoia Hospital in
Redwood City and University of
California-San Francisco, in the name of
his oncologist Fred Marcus — who died of
cancer in 2006.
Aheartbreaking irony as far Hammer is
“The guy (Marcus) had treated something
like 5,000 cancer patients and he died of
cancer,” Hammer said. “I have hundreds of
stories (like that). I hear some [stuff].”
While the numbers and money Hammer
and his tournament have raised is stagger-
ing, those are not necessarily the numbers
that keep Hammer going. These are the
numbers that keep Hammer battling cancer:
Twenty-six — the rounds of chemothera-
py Hammer received while twice going
through treatment for testicular cancer.
Fifteen — the percentage he was given
that he would survive.
Eleven — the age of his son Josh, who
was born by natural means after Hammer
opted against surgery that would have pre-
vented him from having any more children
One — his sister, who called him last
week to tell him she had been diagnosed
with breast cancer.
THOSE are staggering numbers.
“One thing I will always take from the
Lance Armstrong Foundation — Livestrong
is still a great organization — is a quote
from the weekend I was there (in 2001).
One of the board members spoke of the
‘Obligation of the Cured.’ I have not for-
gotten that,” Hammer said. “That’s a driv-
ing force, to help other people and I took
that to heart.
“UCSF has a counseling program and
I’ve been on the list of people to call for
years. I’ve gotten the phone call at 2 in the
morning — a guy who is scheduled to have
surgery the next day and he’s freaking out.
I talk him through it.”
What makes the Have ABall tournament
so great is not only is it a great time out,
but people respond to it because of what it
represents. Of the 300 golfers in atten-
dance Monday, Hammer said he probably
knows, personally, about 200 of them. But
almost to a golfer, Hammer said, nearly
everyone has a cancer story — whether it’s
themselves, a family member or friends.
Nearly everyone has been touched by this
disease in one fashion or another.
“I get in a (golf) cart … and shake every-
one’s hand. You talk to someone for 38
seconds and they have a story,” Hammer
said. “The reality is, everybody has a story
about cancer. ”
Here’s one more number: 15,483,830 —
that is the number of cancer survivors in
the United States alone, according to the
American Cancer Society. THATis the num-
ber that keeps Hammer motivated to do all
he can to increase that number.
And that’s what the Have ABall tourna-
ments are all about.

“Normally, I would be discourage or frustrated,
but I’m just not,” Mickelson said. “I feel like I’ve
had some good breakthroughs in some areas. I
haven’t had the results. I know I haven’t played
well. But the parts feel a lot better than the whole
right now. And I don’t know when it will all click
together. I don’t know if it will be this week. I
don’t know if it will be in three weeks or a month
or what, but it should be soon.”
He’s running out of time.
Mickelson is No. 12 in the Ryder Cup stand-
ings. He has qualified for every team since 1995
— two years after Jordan Spieth was born. He
has reached the FedEx Cup finale for the top 30
at the Tour Championship every year since it
began in 2007. With only three starts before
the playoffs begin, Mickelson is at No. 97.
Then again, it’s easy for Mickelson not to be
overly concerned.
He is 44 and has been on tour for half of his
life, compiling 42 victories on the PGA Tour
and five majors, including that claret jug.
It’s at least been a good year for the jug.
He has taken it to golf clubs and corporate
outings, shared it with friends and people he
had never met. He has let his caddie, Jim
Mackay, take it to pose for pictures.
Mickelson had only one rule.
“One of the things I stressed is that we have
to treat the claret jug with reverence and respect
that it deserves, and only put good stuff in it,”
he said. “No bad stuff was allowed. And each
person that I brought it to had a different defini-
tion of what the good stuff was.”
One definition was a bottle of 1990 Romanee
Conti, which can range in price from $16,000
to about $35,000.
“Now, I didn’t know what this was when I
drank it,” Mickelson said. “I just knew that it
was really good. And that was the best bottle
that was ever put in there.”
Like fine wine, Mickelson can only hope he
gets better with age.
Even though he had to overcome arthritis in
the middle of the 2010 season, and only eight
players older than he is right now have won
majors, Mickelson doesn’t see that as an obsta-
cle. Sure, he has to work a little harder, train a
little better, stretch a little more.

A marathon unfolding over thousands of
hands was wrapping up Monday night in
Las Vegas as card players determine the
World Series of Poker main event final
The no-limit Texas Hold ’em tournament
was expected to go into early Tuesday morn-
ing to settle the last nine players who will
compete for a $10 million top prize in
Three tables with 27 total players began
play at noon Monday, with 11 bounced by
dinnertime. Eddy Sabat was eliminated just
after the break in 16th place, winning near-
ly $348,000, while
Thomas Sarra Jr. and
Oscar Kemps were out
soon after, winning near-
ly $442,000 each.
Sabat and Kemps lost
the last of their chips to
31-year-old Jorryt van
Hoof of the Netherlands,
who propelled to a chip
lead after 66 hours of play
over seven sessions. The tournament started
July 5, attracting 6,683 players over three
starting days.
Each final table player will be paid more
than $730,000 later Tuesday, with a chance
for much more during the final table that
starts Nov. 10.
The top 13 contenders include Luis
Velador, who previously won two smaller
tournaments at the series in 2008 and 2010,
cashing in 15 events since 2006 for more
than $942,000.
Mark Newhouse, 29, was pushing for his
second final table at the main event in as
many years — a slim prospect before the
tournament began given fields of more than
6,000 players each year. He finished ninth
last year for more than $773,000.
Series organizers changed the payout
structure to guarantee $10 million for first
place, the largest main event prize since
Jamie Gold won $12 million for topping a
field of 8,773 players.

NEWYORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez faces
a new challenge: He is being sued by his
own lawyer.
Attorney David Cornwell’s law firm filed
papers Monday in Manhattan federal court
saying the New York Yankees star owes more
than $380,000 related to their work fighting
his steroid suspension.
As first reported by The Daily News, the
firm also is seeking pre-judgment interest
and attorney fees that could increase the
amount to half a million dollars.
Rodriguez was suspended for the 2014 sea-
son as a result of a drug investigation by
Major League Baseball. He has said he plans
to rejoin the Yankees in 2015.

The Daily Journal seeks
two sales professionals
for the following positions:
Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
wires away, too.
Undergrounding the utilities is just one
key piece of the makeover meant to make
the commercial corridor more walkable,
more safe and more alluring to those who
may not yet have explored the unincorpo-
rated neighborhood.
“It’s about time for people outside our area
to come here and have an experience of
Latin culture, said Patricia Bodella who
owns a nutrition business.
Bodella was one of several Middlefield
Road business owners who spoke with
Supervisor Warren Slocum and others during
a walking tour Monday of the area slated for
changes under the banner North Fair Oaks
Forward. So far, a community survey and
meetings reaching out to 2,100 people have
produced a list of what the residents definite-
ly want — wider sidewalks, bike lanes and
parallel parking. There is even a short list
of ideas where they still aren’t agreed.
Should the road be three or four lanes? And
what about a median strip?
“They certainly have questions as a lot of
us do,” said Bernie Martinez, manager of the
North Fair Oaks branch of San Mateo Credit
Union at 3117 Middlefield Road.
Some of those questions include impacts
to parking and to business during construc-
tion. None question how the neighbor’s cul-
ture and flavor may change, he said.
Martinez favors the three-lane option
because it will allow sidewalk widening and
contribute to added safety which will in turn
be good for business. Right now, Martinez
said community members don’t feel like
they are part of something collective but
that the redesign will instill a sense of
“It will make it feel like they belong,”
Martinez said.
Three in four North Fair Oaks residents
identify as Latino and its Middlefield Road
businesses are a wide variety of auto repair
shops, ice cream sellers, taquerias and pho
restaurants. Visitors can see a dentist, buy
agua fresca, wire money and try on western
wear all within close proximity.
But Middlefield Road is also a popular
connector for those driving to and from
nearby Redwood City, Atherton and Menlo
Park who may not even stop to check out
the offerings. Slocum, and the business
people he connected with yesterday, say
they hope the redesign and utility under-
grounding will change that.
Work in progress
The desire to spruce up Middlefield Road
has been in the works five to six years but it
was only the infusion of Measure Asales tax
money that made revisiting the priorities a
possibility, said Deputy County Manager
Peggy Jensen.
In 2013, North Fair Oaks Forward
launched to implement the North Fair Oaks
Community Plan and outreach workers like
Ellie Dallman went to work walking the
neighborhood and meeting face-to-face
with business owners and residents.
The last thing they want, she said, is for
anyone to say after the fact that they did not
know of the planned alterations to the place
they live and work.
If the timeline holds, after a few upcom-
ing community meetings on traffic and road
options, the North Fair Oaks Community
Council should decide on a recommendation
at its Aug. 28 meeting and present those
ideas Oct. 21 to the Board of Supervisors.
The design and construction is estimated to
happen between November 2014 and 2019.
Jensen concedes that’s a big window but
said the county is being conservative with
its projections while also optimistic it will
happen sooner.
Apparent challenges
Walking from Fifth Avenue toward Pacific
Avenue, the challenges of Middlefield Road
are apparent. Traffic, particularly large
trucks, zoom down the street as pedestrians
hustle to get across in time. Empty coffee
cups and half-eaten bowls of melted ice
cream pool on narrow sidewalks where jog-
gers and families step into the street to get
by others. Bicyclists share the road with
The improvement plan calls for better
street lighting, adding trash receptacles and
possibly bike lanes and moving large
standing utility boxes. Some have
expressed interest in gathering places.
Parking will also be changed but exactly
how is not yet set in stone. The preference
is switching the largely diagonal spots to
parallel parking but that does away with 30
percent of the stock, Jensen said.
The goal before changing anything is to
first identify an off-street lot that can be
used for parking, Jensen said. A garage is
another, albeit more expensive, option,
Esperanza Vazquez, a 22-year owner of
Villa Latina and a member of the community
council, would like to see a parking struc-
ture because she said some motorists park
on the street for up to eight hours a day,
blocking spots for customers visiting the
store which sells western wear and offers
bill paying and notary services.
While the conversation continues nailing
down the final design elements of the
makeover, Slocum said there are some com-
mon desires.
“People want a safer neighborhood. They
want safer streets,” Slocum said.

unteers, she’s confident the organization
will run smoothly until a new executive
director is hired.
Established in 1956, the nonprofit DSMA
is a coalition of business and property own-
ers who pay an assessment that is used to
improve economic and civic activity down-
town through marketing, special events and
The DSMA also serves as a liaison
between city officials and those who work
The organization currently has an
$180,000 annual budget and is managed by
its Board of Directors, office manager and
executive director and relies on volunteers.
But with Evans vacating her position,
Kathleen Bednarik, DSMA office manager,
is now the only remaining staff member
until the board finds a replacement.
Summer and the holiday season are
extremely busy for the DSMAand the board
is committed to finding a new executive
director by August, said DSMA board
President Nancy Bush.
“DSMAis planning for a busy schedule of
events and programs between now and the
end of the year and we would like a new exec-
utive director in place soon to ensure a
smooth transition. In the interim, the board
and existing staff are working hard to ensure
operations, member services and events
continue as planned,” Bush wrote in an
Before Evans was hired, minimal and less
effective interim leadership oversaw the
DSMA after its previous director left, said
Linda Asbury, president of San Mateo’s
Economic Development Growth Enterprise.
Although Evans reinvigorated the DSMA
and will be missed, Asbury said she’s now
confident the organization will continue to
“I loved her. She turned that organiza-
tion around. She fostered collaboration
between the [San Mateo Chamber of
Commerce,] the EDGE and the city, ”
Asbury said. “Kathleen’s there, she’s
very capable. They have a very engaged
Board of Directors. So I don’t have any
concerns. The organization will certainly
miss her, but she has enough in place that
it will continue to move forward.”
Under Evans’ leadership, the nonprofit
Downtown Art Project was formed to infuse
art into the business district with projects
such as yarn bombing trees over the holi-
days, soliciting graffiti artists to create col-
orful murals and engaging the community
with collaborative art installations during
San Mateo’s first Innovation Week.
Evans assisted the North B Street initia-
tive, which is geared toward revitalizing the
blighted ethnically diverse sliver of north-
ern downtown, by working with city staff,
said Councilman Jack Matthews, who owns
a downtown architecture firm. She also rein-
stated the summer Wine Walk and worked
with Draper University of Heroes to create a
mural in the alleyway between Third and
Fourth avenues, Matthews said.
The DSMA’s prior leadership wasn’t as
involved and part of Evans’ success was that
she spent personal time with and offered her
assistance to many downtown business
owners, Matthews said.
“I thought she was really a very effective
representative for the [DSMA] in terms of
getting things done,” Matthews said. “She
really got to know people and they got to
know her. ... So the downtown association
had some face to it and [businesses] knew
there was someone they could go to and ask
for help.”
Rebecca Zito, senior management analyst
with the city of San Mateo, said Evans’
enthusiasm and strong leadership skills
were an asset to the community.
Maintaining a strong connection between
the city and local businesses to enhance
downtown will continue to be a priority,
Zito said.
“It definitely is very valuable to have
somebody that can help to both convey city
priorities to downtown businesses and, vice
versa, share info with the city about con-
cerns that businesses are having,” Zito said.
“We really recognize that Jessica, as execu-
tive director, made tremendous strides in
bringing activity to the downtown and so
we want to maintain that momentum and
we’ll support the organization during the

SACRAMENTO — A half-dozen states
with backlogs for Medicaid enrollees were
facing a federal deadline Monday to create
plans for getting those low-income resi-
dents enrolled in health coverage.
The federal Centers for Medicare &
Medicaid Services sent letters dated June 27
to Alaska, California, Kansas, Michigan,
Missouri and Tennessee asking those states
to address gaps in their eligibility and
enrollment systems that have delayed
access to coverage for poor and disabled
The letter was sent months after the first
national sign-up drive under President
Barack Obama’s health reform law.
The letters stated that those states had 10
days to come up with a response plan, but
health advocates say there is no clear dead-
line for actually clearing the backlog.
The federal government “will remain in
close contact with states to monitor their
progress to ensure that they are facilitating
Medicaid enrollment for those individuals
eligible,” agency spokeswoman Marilyn
Jackson said in a statement.
The states facing the federal deadline are a
mix of those that opted to expand Medicaid
under the Affordable Care Act and those that
did not. Obama’s health reform law led to
the signup of about 8 million people in pri-
vate health care coverage through the insur-
ance exchanges, while an additional 3 mil-
lion people enrolled in Medicaid, the state-
federal program for the poor and low-
The federal government initially picks up
the full tab for the Medicaid expansion,
which was accepted by about half the states.
A spokeswoman for the Alaska
Department of Health and Social Services,
Cathy Stadem, said she was checking with
the commissioner on the status of the
state’s response.
Angela Minicuci, a spokeswoman at the
Michigan Department of Community
Health, said the state is working with the
States told to find way to clear Medicaid backlog

federal government to address technology
issues. She said Michigan has enrolled
323,000 residents into the Healthy
Michigan Plan, exceeding its 322,000 tar-
get for the year.
“We will continue to work to ensure
Michiganders have access to health care
coverage needed to lead healthy, productive
lives,” Minicuci said.
California had a backlog of 900,000 peo-
ple in its Medicaid program as of May, out
of 1.9 million people who enrolled.
The state Department of Health Care
Services reported that the backlog has been
reduced to 600,000 as of Monday.
“We’ve been proud of much of what
California has done to implement health
reform, but we’re fundamentally concerned
about people who need care and can’t access
it — people who are going without care,
people who are getting medical bills even
though they’re eligible for Medi-Cal —
that’s all happening today,” said Elizabeth
Landsberg, an advocate with the Western
Center on Law and Poverty.
California’s information technology
problems stem from communication gaps
between the state and county welfare sys-
tems. Many counties have reported trouble
accessing state information necessary to
process applications for Medi-Cal, the
state’s version of the Medicaid safety net
Norman Williams, a spokesman for the
California Department of Health Care
Services, said the volume of applications
also contributed to the backlog.
A group called the Health Consumer
Alliance sent a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown
earlier this month with a list of recommen-
dations, such as granting presumptive eli-
gibility to all applicants who have waited
more than 45 days, the federal timeline for
determining eligibility. The letter included
stories from people whose applications are
stalled even though they need medical care.
One 28-year-old Los Angeles County
woman with a monthly income of $850 has
been waiting more than six months for a
decision on her Medi-Cal application.
While waiting for coverage, she found a
lump in her chin and needs care for a possi-
ble tumor.

CHICAGO — The song says a spoonful
of sugar helps the medicine go down, but a
study says that kind of imprecise measure-
ment can lead to potentially dangerous
dosing mistakes.
The results, published online Monday in
Pediatrics, underscore recommendations
that droppers and syringes that measure in
milliliters be used for liquid medicines —
not spoons.
The study involved nearly 300 parents,
mostly Hispanics, with children younger
than 9 years old. The youngsters were
treated for various illnesses at two New
York City emergency rooms and sent
home with prescriptions for liquid medi-
cines, mostly antibiotics.
Parents were contacted afterward and
asked by phone how they had measured the
prescribed doses. They also brought their
measuring devices to the researchers’
offices to demonstrate doses they’d given
their kids.
Parents who used spoonfuls “were
50percent more likely to give their chil- dren incorrect doses than those who meas- ured in more precise milliliter units,” said
Dr. Alan Mendelsohn, a co-author and
associate professor at New York
University’s medical school.
Incorrect doses included giving too
much and too little, which can both be
dangerous, he said. Underdosing may not
adequately treat an illness and can lead to
medication-resistant infections, while
overdoses may cause illness or side effects
that can be life-threatening. The study
doesn’t include information on any ill
effects from dosing mistakes.
Almost one-third of the parents gave the
wrong dose and 1 in 6 used a kitchen
spoon rather than a device like an oral
syringe or dropper that lists doses in mil-
Less than half the prescriptions speci-
fied doses in milliliters. But even when
they did, the medicine bottle label often
listed doses in teaspoons. Parents often
assume that means any similar-sized
kitchen spoon, the authors said.
“Outreach to pharmacists and other
health professionals is needed to promote
the consistent use of milliliter units
between prescriptions and bottle labels,”
the authors said.

LONDON — The most advanced vaccine
for dengue only offers modest protection but
could still help millions of people avoid the
devastating effects of the disease known as
“breakbone fever,” according to a large trial.
There is no treatment for dengue, which
causes symptoms including fever, severe
joint pain, headaches and bleeding. About
half the world’s population is at risk from
the mosquito-borne disease, which sickens
about 100 million people every year, most-
ly in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Results from an early trial of the vaccine
in 2012 found the vaccine’s efficacy was 33
percent and that it failed to protect against
one type of dengue; there are four distinct
kinds and the vaccine is meant to fight all of
them. In the latest study, conducted in more
than 10,000 children aged 2 to 14 in
Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the
Philippines and Vietnam, the shot’s efficacy
improved to 56 percent. Most common vac-
cines like those for measles and polio are
more than 95 percent effective.
“We all would have wanted a better efficacy
rate but this is what we have to live with at
the moment,” said Annelies Wilder-Smith of
Nanyang Technological University in
Singapore, who wrote a commentary for the
study, published Friday in the journal
Lancet. “Whether this vaccine’s efficacy is
enough for countries to invest in is a ques-
tion for economists.”
Researchers tracked the children in the
new study, including those who got the fake
shot, for about two years and noted side
effects and other health problems following
the vaccine. The study was paid for by Sanofi
Pasteur, the vaccine’s maker.
Other experts said longer follow-up data
on vaccinated children is needed to assess
the shot’s safety. People infected with one
type of dengue develop antibodies that pro-
tect them from further infections of that
type. But if they catch another kind of
dengue, their antibodies make them suscep-
tible to more serious disease that could
include hemorrhaging. Some scientists
worry the antibodies from a dengue vaccine
might have the same effect and say vaccinat-
ed children should be monitored for several
“We just don’t understand the antibody
response in dengue well enough to know if
this (problem) would also occur with a vac-
cine,” said Martin Hibberd, a professor of
emerging infectious diseases at the London
School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine,
who wasn’t part of the study.
He was also concerned the shot seemed to
work by boosting pre-existing antibodies
in people previously infected with dengue,
since younger children didn’t get much pro-
tection from the shot. “It’s a bit scary that it
looks like the vaccine only works in people
who have already had dengue,” which would
make the vaccine useless for Western
tourists traveling to dengue-endemic coun-
tries, he said.
Trial: Dengue shot offers some protection
By Mike Stobbe
NEW YORK — A second investigation
has detailed additional safety problems at
federal health laboratories in Atlanta,
including the use of expired disinfectants
and the transfer of dangerous germs in
Ziploc bags.
The new findings were disclosed
Monday in a congressional committee’s
summary of a U.S. Department of
Agriculture report on the CDC anthrax
The USDA report focuses on an incident
last month at a Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention lab that handles
bioterrorism agents. The lab was supposed
to completely kill anthrax samples before
sending them to two other CDC labs. But
the higher-security lab did not completely
sterilize the bacteria.
Dozens of CDC workers were potential-
ly exposed to dangerous anthrax bacteria.
No one got sick, but a CDC internal inves-
tigation report released last week found
serious safety lapses, including use of
unapproved sterilization techniques and
use of a potent anthrax in an experiment
that didn’t require that germ to be used.
Separate from the CDC probe, investi-
gators from the USDA’s Animal and Plant
Health Inspection Services came to the
CDC to look into what happened.
A USDA spokeswoman said her agency
does not release its reports to the public.
The CDC did not immediately release the
report, either. But the findings were sum-
marized in a report released by a U.S.
House of Representatives subcommittee,
which is holding a hearing Wednesday on
recent reports of CDC lab problems.
According to the congressional
memo, the USDA found:
• Disinfectants used for decontamination
of vials and bags had expired, and CDC
staff couldn’t remember if they used the
expired products in cleaning up after the
anthrax incident.
• At least some of the lab workers who
were potentially exposed were not exam-
ined until five days later.
• Security measures within the lab
building were flawed. Anthrax was stored
in unlocked refrigerators in an unrestricted
hallway. The key to one refrigerator sat in
its lock.
• Germ materials were transferred
between labs in two Ziploc bags, failing
to meet containment guidelines.
A CDC spokesman said the agency is
“carefully scrutinizing” the report.
“Some findings are already being
addressed, and others will be addressed as
soon as possible,” said the spokesman,
Tom Skinner.
Second probe details more CDC anthrax lab problems
The first vaccine against dengue fever,from France’s Sanofi,provided moderate protection in
a large clinical study, but questions remain as to how well it can help fight the world’s
fastest-growing tropical disease.

an existing billboard sign south of the
Millbrae Avenue exit between the Aloft
Hotel property and Cowan Canal and
north of the Millbrae Avenue exit on
the north bank of the Highline
Drainage Canal, according to a staff
report. There are close to 10 bidders,
said Mayor Wayne Lee. Signs could net
Millbrae more than $100,000 per
year, he said.
“Around the airport is the area of
interest — that’s my feeling,” he said.
“It’s not just about the money — it’s
about publicizing Millbrae and its
The city of Burlingame recently put
on hold plans for adding media signs
along Highway 101 because of con-
cerns about safety hazards and distur-
bances to nearby residences. Other
nearby cities have considered such
signs, including Belmont, Menlo Park
and Palo Alto. Cities that currently
have electronic media signs include
East Palo Alto and San Carlos.
“I think Burlingame’s concerns are
very valid,” Lee said. “The benefit s
outweigh the challenges though here.
They’d be small, appropriately sized
The city has been discussing bring-
ing media signs to the city for a while,
but it was in 2013 that the discussion
came up again. Arequest for proposals
was issued for digital and traditional
billboard signs on April 25. Lee is
open to looking at putting signs on El
Camino Real as well. The city has also
identified five other potential sites for
electronic media signs or traditional
billboards. None of these are along
Highway 101, according to the staff
Other councilmembers seem to be in
favor of signs as well.
“I think the location that we have
identified is an excellent location —
by Aloft along 101,” said Councilman
Reuben Holober. “It’s not near a resi-
dential area and it’s on a small strip of
land that the city doesn’t have much
use for. ”
Bringing electronic signs to
Millbrae is something the city has
been discussing for while, said
Councilwoman Marge Colapietro.
“Now that there’s some time to take
a good look at this — that’s what we’re
doing,” she said. “The advantage of
having it is to be able to have it visi-
ble to as many people as possible. We
have an opportunity to promote what
goes on in the Millbrae community.
Maybe [get people to] pull off the road
and come and ... join us and attend our
community activities.”
It also gives the city an opportunity
to have some kind of agreement with
the provider of the media sign to finan-
cially benefit from advertisements
with franchise fees commissions,
Colapietro said.
“I’m hoping it will be a win-win for
the public and a win-win for the city, ”
she said.
The City Council will have to
approve such signs, but there is yet to
be a date slated for a vote.

the height of the recession and have
massive liabilities.
In January, the state Department of
Finance estimated almost $218 billion
in unfunded pension and retiree health
care liabilities for CalPERS, CalSTRS,
the University of California system
and judges. That’s the shortage the
funds need to cover so they are able to
fully pay all their promised financial
commitments to retirees.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation
last month creating a long-term plan
to pay down unfunded liabilities in the
teacher pension system, now estimat-
ed at $74 billion. The state estimates
CalPERS has nearly $50 billion in
unfunded liabilities, up from about
$45.5 billion in January.
The legislation requires higher
contributions to the fund from the
state, school districts and teachers
over time in an effort to eliminate
the unfunded liability by 2046.
Contributions eventually will rise to
$5 billion a year.
Earlier this year, CalPERS also
approved the first in a series of rate
increases to reflect longer life
expectancies for retirees.
“There’s much, much work to be
done,” Ted Eliopoulos, CalPERS’
interim chief investment officer, told
reporters in a conference call. “We’re
ever vigilant. We try not to get too
excited in good years or bad years
about one-year results.”
CalPERS’ portfolio is now $299.4
billion, while CalSTRS’ is estimated at
$189.1 billion.

LOS ANGELES — Archie Andrews will
die taking a bullet for his gay best
The famous freckle-faced comic book
icon is meeting his demise in
Wednesday’s installment of “Life with
Archie” when he intervenes in an assas-
sination attempt on Kevin Keller,
Archie Comics’ first openly gay charac-
ter. Andrews’ death, which was first
announced in April, will mark the con-
clusion of the series that focuses on
grown-up renditions of Andrews and his
Riverdale pals.
“The way in which Archie dies is
everything that you would expect of
Archie,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie
Comics publisher and co-CEO. “He dies
heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in
the manner that epitomizes not only the
best of Riverdale but the best of all of
us. It’s what Archie has come to repre-
sent over the past almost 75 years.”
Keller’s character first joined Veronica
Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones
and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics
spin-off “Veronica” in 2010. He later
appeared in his own solo title. In “Life
with Archie,” Keller is a married mili-
tary veteran and newly elected senator
who’s pushing for more gun control in
Riverdale after his husband was
involved in a shooting.
“We wanted to do something that was
impactful that would really resonate
with the world and bring home just how
important Archie is to everyone,” said
Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with
the storyline of saving Kevin. He could
have saved Betty. He could have saved
Veronica. We get that, but metaphorical-
l y, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is
Andrew Wheeler, who writes about the
comic book industry at
ComicsAlliance.com, praised the way
that Andrews will be killed off. He wrote
on Monday that “Archie’s sacrifice isn’t
just a moment of heroism; it offers an
unambiguous condemnation of
America’s lax gun laws” and said that
it’s “not surprising to see Archie
Comics tackling such a serious issue”
because the publisher “doesn’t shy away
from risky ideas.”

TUESDAY, JULY 15, 2014
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Good fortune is within
reach, and opportunities will be offered to you. Take
charge of your life, your future and your money. It’s up
to you to control your destiny and find your way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s a favorable time to move
house or fix up your surroundings. Listen carefully to
advice offered you, as well as to the concerns of those
affected by your decisions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You will experience
friction with a friend, relative or neighbor. If you stick
to a set budget, you will be able to afford something
you’ve wanted to do for some time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Successful relationships
depend on honest communication. Share your personal
and professional goals. Talk to your superior about
your ideas for useful changes to your workplace.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Consider other people’s
points of view. Overdramatizing your problems will not
help your situation or persuade others to see things
your way. Try to reach a compromise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You will become
interested in something or someone that isn’t good for
you. Don’t risk your position by being too aggressive or
demanding. Think matters through.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Worrying about
older family members will cause you stress. Keep a
positive attitude in order to put everyone around you
at ease. Do what you can to uncomplainingly make life
more comfortable for others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t brag. You will
be questioned if you pretend to know more than you
do. Listening to others can help you gain valuable
information, enabling you to appear interested,
concerned and easy to talk to.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — It’s time to focus on
your career. Trying to change the way others think or
do things will be a waste of time. Do your own thing,
and you’ll have no regrets.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Reach out to those
with experience in your chosen field. You can turn
your dreams into reality with the right network of
people around you for support.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Success is the best
revenge. Now is not the time to labor over what’s
happened in the past. Stand tall and do what you do
best, and you will have the last laugh.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Quench your thirst
for knowledge by learning more about interesting
subjects. Some time devoted to doing research at the
library or on the Internet will be well-spent.

in their advertisements that they are not
