Fungus plagues
palms downtown
Redwood City officials removing
$35,000 trees because of infection
By Michelle Durand
Afungus that killed one palm tree in downtown Redwood
City last year is also prompting the upcoming removal of
two more which became infected.
The spot where the tree on Broadway at Theatre Way was
has remained empty since its removal because the deadly
fungus fusarium remains present in the underground dirt.
City staff says they can’t concretely predict when the fungus
will die off but a new tree will be planted when it is no
longer detectable.
The fungus is common to palms and is the same one that
caused the removal of several trees on the Embarcadero in

San Mateo County transportation offi-
cials are expressing frustration by low
South San Francisco ferry ridership and a
perceived lack of effort in growing those
numbers, but ferry officials say the numbers
are just fine and marketing is a key part of
their plans.
Fares could have to rise from their cur-
rent cost of $7 for ferry riders if the San
Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency
Transportation Authority, or WETA, which
runs the weekday commuter ferry service,
doesn’t pick up more customers. San
Mateo County Transportation Authority
Board members, like South San Francisco
Mayor Karyl Matsumoto, are expressing
dismay over a lack of marketing plan by
WETA. The ferry service has a deadline of
2015 for raising its farebox recovery, the
portion of ferry costs that are covered by
rider fares, and it isn’t close to meeting
the requirement. WETA officials said they
plan to ask for a deadline extension.
Right now, the majority of the funding is
coming from bridge toll money that will go
away in 2015. The Transportation
Authority board is also concerned WETA
isn’t meeting regularly or been responsive
to its feedback. Matsumoto has a specific
interest because the ferry service runs out of
South City. Other Transportation Authority
Board members, like Redwood City Vice
Mayor Rosanne Foust, have expressed an
interest in a public ferry service in Redwood
City. The Transportation Authority pro-
Ferry frustration mounts
Officials want South City passenger numbers to grow, higher fares could result otherwise

As emergency crews rush to combat the
growing number of wildfires ripping
through California, San Mateo County fire
departments have stepped up and dispatched
55 firefighters across the state since Sunday.
The county has sent out a total of 22 vehi-
cles, including 16 fire engines, as part of
three strike teams, said San Mateo Fire
Chief Mike Keefe, who oversees operations
for San Mateo, Belmont and Foster City.
Two San Mateo County strike teams, each
comprised of five fire engines and two
chiefs, were sent to the Little Deer Fire in

Missing fishing boat captain
has warrant out for his arrest
By Terry Collins
SAN FRANCISCO — A missing captain who may have
abandoned his fishing boat when it got stranded off a popu-
lar San Francisco beach also has an out-
standing warrant for his arrest, authori-
ties said Tuesday.
A$75,000 arrest warrant was issued in
2012 for Timothy Lybrand of Santa Cruz
when he violated probation by failing to
appear in court, records say. He was
arrested and convicted for possessing
drugs and drug paraphernalia in 2010,
Santa Clara County sheriff’s Sgt. Kurtis
Stenderup said.
The revelation comes a day after the
Coast Guard called off its hourslong search for Lybrand, 51,
after scouring an area around San Francisco’s Ocean Beach
where his 40-foot vessel ran aground in 10-foot-deep
A salvage operations team pulled the partially capsized
boat close to shore Tuesday but did not see Lybrand inside,
Lt. Theo Vaughan said.

San Mateo man found
guilty of beating outside bar
A jury found a 26-year-old San
Mateo man guilty of beating a man
outside a bar and throwing a brick
at his head in a Redwood City court-
room on Monday.
Ernesto Pedro Lopez was drink-
ing at Steamies Bar in San Mateo
after a 49ers game on Jan. 19 with
two men and two women when the
victim began talking to the
women, according to San Mateo
County District Attorney Steve
Lopez and the men became angry
and started to argue with the victim;
the conflict moved out to the street
and escalated into a fight with the
victim being beaten, Wagstaffe
A passing emergency medical
technician witnessed Lopez throw a
brick at the victim; one of the other
men used another brick to beat the
victim twice in the head, Wagstaffe
said. The victim was seriously
injured, Wagstaffe said.
The two other men were convict-
ed of felony assault, and Lopez is
due back in court on Sept. 19 for
sentencing, Wagstaffe said.

Local briefs
Eight defendants have pleaded not
guilty to transporting more than
5,000 pounds of marijuana from
Mexico to San Mateo County by
boat, prosecutors said Tuesday.
The eight defendants who entered
pleas are Luis Farid Gonzalez, 20,
Juan Hernandez, 39, Juan Valdez
Lopez, 50, Luis Espinoza Mendoza,
28, Estaban Flores Salazar, 39,
Joan Sicairos, 19, Mark Richard
Teixeira, 38, and Phin Yo Vorn, 33.
They entered the pleas Monday in a
courtroom in Redwood City.
A ninth defendant, Mario
Gonzalez, 36, was not able to
appear in court and was to be
arraigned Tuesday afternoon,
according to the San Mateo County
District Attorney’s Office.
The charges against the four
Mexico residents, three San Jose
residents and two San Diego resi-
dents stem from an incident Friday
night in which San Mateo County
Narcotics Task Force agents inter-
cepted 180 bales of marijuana worth
$23 million after they were loaded
into vans from a boat that had land-
ed at the beach in Año Nuevo State
Park in Pescadero, prosecutors said.
On Friday, officials from the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security
alerted the county task force that
marijuana boats might be landing
off of the San Mateo County coast,
according to the District Attorney’s
Office. At 10:15 p.m., two large
vans allegedly entered the state
park to meet a panga boat that had
landed there, prosecutors said.
Task force agents stopped the
vans as they drove back onto
Highway 1 and discovered 5,148
pounds of marijuana inside, prose-
cutors said.
Agents also found an inflatable
raft, rain gear and cellphones on the
beach. Alocal fisherman spotted the
unmanned boat drifting in the water
and the U.S. Coast Guard recovered
it, according to the District
Attorney’s Office. An investigation
determined the boat had come from
Mexico to deliver marijuana to
California, prosecutors said.
The defendants are due back in
court on Aug. 14 for a preliminary
hearing. More than 1,000 pounds
of marijuana was discovered in May
during a maritime smuggling
attempt at the same location. Aboat
and a nearby SUV were both found

After almost four years, Sue Bullis is
continuing to turn the grief over the
loss of her son William in the 2010
San Bruno explosion and fire into a
productive effort with her culinary
This year, Bullis is hoping to raise
more money than ever during the
William J. Bullis Scholarship
fundraiser and auction Saturday, Aug.
9. The scholarship is a $15,000
tuition grant awarded yearly to one
financially disadvantaged young adult
with great potential for a culinary
career. The scholarship honors
William, a 17-year-old Mills High
School senior, who overcame his
physical disability to discover his
passion for cooking. Bullis was one
of eight people killed in the 2010 nat-
ural gas explosion and fire. His father
Greg, grandmother Lavonne and dog
Lucky were lost that day.
“It’s exciting for me to know that
I’m keeping Will’s dream alive,” Sue
Bullis said. “If anything good can
come out of the explosion in 2010,
this has come out of it; we’re touching
people’s lives because of it.”
The scholarship goes toward the stu-

Culinary Center in
Campbell. The non-

nary students in the

Last year, the fundraiser and auction
was able to raise more than $12,000
toward the award. This year, there will
also be a live auction and the event
will be at a larger venue since last year
it grew too big to accommodate
enough people in Sue Bullis’ home,
where it was held last year. So far,
more than 60 companies have donated
more than 100 items for the auctions.
“It’s just unbelievable the generosi-
ty of people,” she said. “For now it’s
(the event) annual and then we’ll see
how it grows.”
Auction items this year include a
safari in South Africa, a fighter pilot
training session, an emerald and dia-
mond necklace by Geneve Jewelers on
Burlingame Avenue and olive oil tast-
ings. Charles Schwab also donated
items and Wells Fargo Bank is giving
out a spa package.
Meanwhile, at least two of the past
scholarship recipients are coming to
the fundraiser, including the first
recipient Anthony Ortiz of Hayward.
Other winners are Alexandria Corona,
Peter Laforge and Justin Gaspar.
“I’m totally psyched by this,” Sue
Bullis said. “I’m really feeling we’ve
made a difference in their lives.”
To donate goods to the silent auc-
tion or for more information, contact

U.S. terrorism database doubles in recent years
WASHINGTON — AU.S. government database of known
or suspected terrorists doubled in size in recent years,
according to newly released government figures. The growth
is the result of intelligence agencies submitting names
more often after a near-miss attack in 2009.
There were 1.1 million people in the database at the end of
2013, according to the National Counterterrorism Center,
which maintains the information. About 550,000 people
were listed in the database in March 2010.
The Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, or TIDE,
is a huge, classified database of people who are known ter-
rorists, are suspected of having ties to terrorism or in some
cases are related to or are associates of known or suspected
terrorists. It feeds to smaller lists that restrict people’s abil-
ities to travel on commercial airliners to or within the U.S.
The government does not need evidence linking someone
to terrorism in order for the person to be included in the
database. This is among the reasons the database and subse-
quent terror watch lists have been criticized by privacy

The 62-year-old woman arrested mul-
tiple times at San Francisco
International Airport for sneaking
through security or visiting in viola-
tion of a court order was arrested for
similar conduct in Southern
Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, was
arrested at Los Angeles International
Airport at approximately 11 p.m.
Monday, Aug. 4. She was booked into
jail on suspicion of misdemeanor tres-
passing at airport operations, accord-
ing to the Los Angeles County
Sheriff’s Department.
She reportedly snuck onto an air-
plane at the Mineta San Jose
International Airport and was appre-
hended after landing in Los Angeles.
Neither a spokeswoman for Mineta
San Jose International Airport or the
Los Angeles Airport Police Division
returned an inquiry for comment.
Hartman is being held on $500 bail
and, as of Tuesday afternoon, had no
court appearance yet scheduled, accord-
ing to the Sheriff’s Department.
Hartman’s new
case echoes those
that nabbed head-
lines in the Bay
Area earlier this
year when she was
arrested several
times in very close
succession and ulti-
mately sentenced to
the county’s
Pathways Mental
Health Court. Hartman told authorities
she tried sneaking onto planes — once
even succeeding — or simply sat in the
food court because she had cancer and
did not feel safe in her San Francisco
residence. Authorities believe she had
cancer several years ago but not now.
Hartman’s San Mateo County arrests
began in February when she was appre-
hended following three attempts with-
in five days to board Hawaii-bound
flights without a ticket. The first time
she managed to get on board but was
discovered when the actual ticket hold-
er arrived at the seat. The next two
times, including once when she used a
discarded boarding pass, she was

Fire, vandalism at Taft Elementary School
Redwood City police are asking the public for informa-
tion related to a fire at Taft Elementary School in Redwood
City and related graffiti Sunday night.
At approximately 8:20 p.m. Aug. 3, police and firefight-
ers responded to a report of a fire at the school at 903 10th
Ave. and found ornamental foliage on a fence on fire on the
west side of the school. The fire was extinguished quickly
and there was no permanent damage to the school or sur-
rounding structures, according to police.
The fire destroyed about 15 feet of the foliage and charred
the fence close to the school’s buildings, according to
Police also found graffiti and determined several addition-
al locations where someone had tried to ignite the school
structure. The graffiti appears to contain the letters “STAY”
and is possibly related to a prior vandalism incident where
the suspect tagged the words “STAY TRUE,” according to
The graffiti was with yellow paint and the subjects
involved are believed to be three Hispanic male juveniles
approximately 14 to 15 years of age, according to police.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Redwood
City police at 780-7100 or Detective Joe O’Gorman at 780-

There are 14 fires in the drought-

National Park and most San Mateo
County fire departments are contribut-
ing to disaster response efforts.
California is unique and well-versed
in pooling resources to combat disas-
ters, said Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold
Schapelhouman. The master mutual aid
system is a type of shared services
agreement between the California
Office of Emergency Services,
California Department of Forestry and
Fire Protection, the Bureau of Land
Management, the United States Forest
Service and counties and fire agencies,
Schapelhouman said.
San Mateo County has been the ben-
eficiary of efforts such as these, most
poignantly during the San Bruno
explosion and fire in 2010,
Schapelhouman said. Per an agreement
with the state, Schapelhouman said his
department is reimbursed $375 per hour
for an engine that’s sent on a strike
team mission.
“The master mutual aid system for the
state creates the biggest fire station in
the world. When everything’s in play,
it’s pretty seamless, it’s pretty power-
ful,” Schapelhouman said. “It takes all
the individual agencies in the state and
allows us to cooperate and work
together. … It’s a very powerful instru-
ment that you can scale up or down
depending on what you need to hap-
The county’s participation also
involved sending seven individual
overhead employees, which could
include dispatchers or line medics
responsible for providing medical care
to the active firefighters.
Keefe said firefighters are also being
sent in preparation for potential fires
and to backfill stations that have sent
out teams.
With forecasted lighting storms
increasing the chance of more fires, a
third strike team left San Mateo County
on Monday and was on its way to
Mendocino County on Tuesday, Keefe
Firefighters from Millbrae, Central
County, Foster City, San Bruno, San
Mateo, Half Moon Bay, Brisbane, Daly
City, Redwood City and South San
Francisco fire departments have been
dispatched to the Little Deer fire and
could stay anywhere from one to three
weeks, Keefe said.
Firefighters from Belmont, Menlo
Park, Redwood City, Woodside and
County Fire will be on guard in
Mendocino, Keefe said.
Departments keep a close eye on
statewide conditions and, once the call
is received, firefighters gear up go
where they are needed, Keefe said.
“This has become part of the fire
service for the state of California. We
respond and are called to assist outside
jurisdictions in their times of need,”
Keefe said. “We’re happy to be able to
help whatever community needs it. …
California is second to none, to be able
to mobilize help and we do it frequent-
ly and we’re very good at it.”
Firefighters throughout each depart-
ment, regardless if they’re not being
physically dispatched to other parts of
the state, also contribute during times
of need by working during their off
days, Keefe said.
“At the end of the day, our mission is
to still adequately staff our individual
organizations in the county so the
public, for the most part, it’s seam-
less. They don’t feel losing 16 engines
and within an hour, having them re-
staffed,” Keefe said.
Keefe and Schapelhouman said
assignments such as these allow for
department staff to receive further
training hours and this set of strike
teams have a second chief assigned to
Fighting wildfires versus responding
to calls in a more urban environment
are different, however, modern fire-
fighter training is extremely thorough,
Schapelhouman said.
Although each strike team assign-
ment is unique, firefighters often aban-
don their typical schedules and could
be on duty for 72 hours straight, Keefe
“Tactically, they’re certainly differ-
ent. There’s different considerations,
different hazards. Typically, wildfires
are a long duration so you have to plan
what you’re doing over multiple oper-
ation periods. It’s a much longer fight
and you have to think in those terms,”
Keefe said.
Teams come equipped with sleeping
supplies and can often be set up on
cots for days, Keefe said. With the
statewide drought expected to contin-
ue, county response teams will contin-
ue to be on the lookout, Keefe said.
“We’re on heightened awareness this
year with the drought conditions and
with the little rain and fire activity
we’re experiencing and seeing out
there throughout the state,” Keefe said.
“So when a call comes, we’ve been
preparing for it. … So they get them-
selves mentally and physically ready
and they go.”

WASHINGTON — Economists have long
argued that a rising wealth gap has compli-
cated the U.S. rebound from the Great
Now, an analysis by the rating agency
Standard & Poor’s lends its weight to the
argument: The widening gap between the
wealthiest Americans and everyone else has
made the economy more prone to boom-
bust cycles and slowed the 5-year-old recov-
ery from the recession.
Economic disparities appear to be reach-
ing extremes that “need to be watched
because they’re damaging to growth,” said
Beth Ann Bovino, chief U.S. economist at
The rising concentration of income
among the top 1 percent of earners has con-
tributed to S&P’s cutting its growth esti-
mates for the economy. In part because of
the disparity, it estimates that the economy
will grow at a 2.5 percent annual pace in the
next decade, down from a forecast five years
ago of a 2.8 percent rate.
The S&P report advises against using the
tax code to try to narrow the gap. Instead, it
suggests that greater access to education
would help ease wealth disparities.
Part of the problem is that educational
achievement has stalled in recent decades.
More schooling usually translates into
higher wages. S&P estimates that the U.S.
economy would grow annually by an addi-
tional half a percentage point —or $105
billion — over the next five years, if the
average the American worker had completed
just one more year of school.
By contrast, S&P concludes, heavy taxes
that would be meant to reduce inequality
could remove incentives for people to work
and cause businesses to hire fewer employ-
ees because of the costs involved.
The report builds on data from the
Aid group: American
with Ebola weak but improving
ATLANTA — The husband of the second
American aid worker recently diagnosed with
Ebola says the patient is
weak but showing signs
of improvement.
The president of the aid
group SIM USA said
Tuesday that Nancy
Writebol’s husband
described the woman as
progressing. Bruce
Johnson says he spoke
with David Writebol, who
said 59-year-old Nancy stood and got on a
plane in Liberia with assistance to head to
Atlanta for treatment. When she arrived
Tuesday, she was wheeled in a stretcher.
David Writebol, still in Liberia, says the
family was considering funeral arrange-
ments, but now feels relieved and cautiously
optimistic. He praised her treatment in
SIM says it’s working to bring David
Writebol home.
Johnson says SIM has spent nearly $1

Kansas GOP Sen. Roberts
grabs early primary lead
WASHINGTON — Three-term Republican
Sen. Pat Roberts maintained a double-digit
lead over tea party favorite Milton Wolf in
Kansas’ primary Tuesday night in the latest
contest pitting mainstream conservatives
against the upstart movement. A first-term
Michigan GOP congressman lost his bid for
With 13 percent of the precincts reporting,
Roberts held a 50 percent to 38 percent edge
over Wolf, a radiologist and distant cousin of
President Barack Obama.
The GOP establishment blames the tea
party for costing it Senate control in 2010
and 2012 as outside candidates stumbled in
the general election. Republicans need to net
six seats to regain the Senate, and the party
has taken no chances this election cycle, put-
ting its full force behind incumbents and

KABUL, Afghanistan — An
American major general was shot
to death
Tuesday in one
of the bloodi-
est insider
attacks of the
l o n g
Af g h a n i s t a n
war when a
gunman dressed
as an Afghan
soldier turned
on allied troops, wounding about
15 including a German general
and two Afghan generals.
The Army identified the
American officer as Maj. Gen.
Harold J. Greene, a 34-year veter-
an. An engineer by training,
Greene was on his first deploy-
ment to a war zone and was
involved in preparing Afghan
forces for the time when U.S.-
coalition troops leave at the end
of this year. He was the deputy
commanding general, Combined
Security Transition Command-
Greene was the highest-ranked
American officer killed in combat
in the nation’s post-9/11 wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan and the
highest-ranked officer killed in
combat since 1970 in the
Vietnam War.
Five major generals were killed
in Vietnam, the last Maj. Gen.
John Albert Dillard, whose heli-
copter was shot down.
The attack at Marshal Fahim
National Defense University
underscored the tensions that per-
sist as the U.S. combat role winds
down in Afghanistan — and it
wasn’t the only assault by an
Afghan ally on coalition forces
on Tuesday. In eastern Paktia
province, an Afghan police guard
exchanged fire with NATO troops
near the governor’s office,
provincial police said. The guard
was killed in the gunfight.
It wasn’t clear if the two inci-
dents were linked, and police said
they were investigating.
Early indications suggested the
Afghan gunman who killed the
American general was inside a
building and fired indiscriminate-
ly from a window at the people
gathered outside, the U.S. official
said. There was no indication that
Greene was specifically targeted,
said a U.S. official. The official
was not authorized to speak pub-
licly by name about the incident
and provided the information
only on condition of anonymity.
The wounded included a German
brigadier general and two Afghan
generals, officials said. One of
the officials said that of the esti-
mated 15 wounded, about half
were Americans, several of them
in serious condition.
U.S. officials still asserted con-
fidence in their partnership with
the Afghan military, which
appears to be holding its own
against the Taliban but will soon
be operating independently once
most U.S.-led coalition forces
leave at the end of the year.

One liberal woman’s view
As I watch one self-proclaimed
intellectual after another join the
ranks of celebrities in trumpeting
their dismay at Israel’s right to self-
defense, I can at least take a little
comfort in knowing that I taught my
children to stand up for what is right,
and not to be swayed by what may be
momentarily popular.
So go ahead, my liberal friends,
step up for the rights of Hamas to tar-
get Israeli civilians on sovereign
Israeli land, but also remember that in
doing so you are also condoning their
right to repress women and kill
homosexuals and anyone who does
not align completely with their world
view. Know that women are not
allowed to ride bicycles in Gaza,
because Hamas considers it immoral,
and that dissenters are killed as a mat-
ter of course. And when history
proves that you were on the wrong
side of this noble fight for freedom
and democracy, when you throw up
your hands and wonder what happened
to bring the world to such an
impasse, fear not; we will be here to
remind you.

Halt military aid to Israel
Prime Minister Netanyahu contin-
ues his non-stop diatribe of the
Palestinians unleashing his arsenal of
weapons of mass destructive on inno-
cent civilians, boasting of their pin-
point accuracy. One can only assume
that innocent men, women and chil-
dren are his intended targets.
To intensify the misery and pain,
the IDF has deliberately destroyed
much of Gaza’s infrastructure includ-
ing schools, hospitals, mosques,
water treatment plants, sewage plants
and its main source of electricity.
Many U.N. refugee shelters have also
been deliberately bombed in spite of
the fact that the precise GPS coordi-
nates of the buildings were well
known to the IDF.
The trigger that unleashed the cur-
rent violence was the death of three
Israeli teenagers; Netanyahu accused
Hamas of the murders but offered no
proof. The accusation was a desperate
attempt by Netanyahu to decouple the
united government of Hamas and the
Palestinian Authority. It has proved
to be a total failure. The ongoing
genocide has served to unify
Palestinians against Israel’s decades
old occupation and siege of Gaza.
What has infuriated Americans is the
derision heaped on John Kerry
effort’s to broker a cease-fire. I urge
concerned readers to contact the
White House and the lawmakers and
demand an immediate halt to military
aid to Israel which has become an
increasing liability.

Letters to the editor
hen it comes to water con-
servation, it appears as if
residents in the Daily
Journal coverage area in San Mateo
County are on board and doing the
right thing.
In light of the worst drought this
state has seen in years, the San
Francisco Public Utilities
Commission requested consumers
reduce their water use by 10 percent.
For the most part, we responded. The
town of Hillsborough reported the
highest amount of reduction with 16
percent, while the cities of Belmont,
Burlingame and Burlingame reported
15 percent or higher. Even the cities
that did not quite reach the goal, San
Bruno at 9 percent and Redwood City
at 6 percent, each have their own
measures to reduce overall consump-
tion. San Bruno supplements its water
from the SFPUC with well water and
Redwood City uses recycled water in
portions of Redwood Shores. By com-
parison, San Francisco residents had
conserved about 6.6 percent as of
early July. So take a moment to con-
gratulate yourself.
Now, let’s kick it up a notch. When
Gov. Jerry Brown declared a statewide
drought in February, he urged
Californians to reduce consumption
by 20 percent. Many of us are almost
there and it could take just a bit more
effort to meet the governor’s goal. We
can do it.
That, however, is just one piece of
the puzzle. There is also a matter of
our state’s aging infrastructure as
evidenced by the massive water leak
by the University of California, Los
Angeles last week that caused the
loss of some 20 million gallons of
water. Nearer to home, the Daily
Journal reported July 2 that a failed
SFPUC pipe has been pouring mil-
lions of gallons of fresh water just
south of the Dumbarton Bridge into
the Bay and will continue to do so
until a multi-million-dollar system
upgrade is completed by the end of
this year. That leak is estimated to
account for a loss of 25 gallons of
water per minute for the past four to
five years. The good news is that the
issue will be addressed in the $4.6
billion Bay Tunnel Project. The bad
news is that it has wasted between
52.5 million gallons and 65.7 mil-
lion gallons of water since the
SFPUC was made aware of the leak,
according to its own estimates. So
while we let our lawns go brown and
take shorter showers, the impact just
might be negligible in comparison
to the losses created by our aging
infrastructure. The UCLA leak was
obvious, the SFPUC Bay leak may
not have been noticed. Just think of
the water loss by leaking pipes we
can’t see underground.
Just how that is to be addressed is a
larger issue that must be dealt with at
the state level. Astate water bond
scheduled for the November ballot is
being debated in Sacramento this
week and based on the deliberation
will likely be between $6 billion and
$11.1 billion and seek to address
groundwater protection, water stor-
age, waste water treatment and Delta
sustainability efforts. So far, the
debate has been hampered by politics
and competing interests and that’s
even without the governor’s Delta
Tunnel project truly in the mix. The
idea, however, is that this bond would
set the stage for more on the Delta
Tunnel effort, which essentially would
divert water to the southern end of the
state without having to travel through
the Delta. So exactly how much infra-
structure relief will be provided by
any bond has yet to be seen and will
still have to pass muster with state
voters in November.
The positive thing that has come
out of this drought is that conserva-
tion is resonating with regular peo-
ple, particularly those in San Mateo
County, and there is a serious discus-
sion on infrastructure, storage and
other ways to ensure our state’s water
supply. With a need for a two-thirds
vote in the Legislature, compromise
is key. So keep those spigots to the
right folks, but keep your eye on
Sacramento too.
Conservation just one piece of the water puzzle
‘Food, Inc.’
ost of us, if we choose to do so, can recog-
nize how food companies spend money on
advertising, but it is far more difficult to
know about the industry’s behind-the-scenes efforts to
Congress, federal agencies, courts, universities and profes-
sional organizations to make diets seem a matter of person-
al choice rather than deliberate manipulation.” — Marion
Nestle, “Food Politics.”
During the first week of July, we learned that Foster Farms
was finally, after about 16 months of fiddling around, being
held responsible (more or less) for its disease-producing
production practices. This is just one example of how cor-
porate interests are controlling not only what we eat, but
obviously manipulating regulators who should be protect-
ing us.
Who knows what kind of
influence Foster Farms has
had over the FDA, but why
they hadn’t been forced to
close up their act long
before that is a mystery. The
recall is for 170 different
chicken products — most
produced in the Central
Valley. How many more
people have to suffer before
the FDAmakes corporate
interests toe the line?
We are all at the mercy of
the food industry and the
FDAwhen it comes to what
we eat. Even those who are aware of the problems and do
their best to eat healthfully find it very difficult to keep
track of all of the caveats and purchase their food accord-
ingly. Yet the entire population of the world is threatened
as evinced by a recent article by the Associated Press that
told us that “Thirty percent of world is now fat; no country
immune.” The corporate interests have their way with us,
all the while aware of the fact that most people will do very
little to counteract their practices.
Also around Independence Day, we heard and read about
the hot dog eating contest and the Bacon Fest. Yet we know
that processed meats such as those mentioned should be
avoided by anyone interested in good health. Are there no
priorities? Is there no shame?
Note the following: “The staggering rise of obesity over
the past few decades doesn’t just stem from refined carbohy-
drates messing with our metabolism; more and more of
what we eat comes to us custom designed by the food indus-
try to want more. There’s evidence that processing itself
raises the danger posed by food. Studies suggest that
processed meats may increase the risk of heart disease in a
way that unprocessed meat does not.” — Time Magazine,
June 23.
The saddest and most poignant part of the story is that
young people, many of whom practically live on such
processed meats, sodas, fast and other highly processed
foods highly infested with chemical additives, those secret
GMOs and the like will be (or already are) the parents of the
next generation. And we wonder why premature births,
birth defects, ADHD, intellectual deficits and similar keep
As for chemical additives, facets of the industry are busy
developing additives that, when included in our diet, will
encourage us to eat more. Of interest is Sweetmyx, devel-
oped by PepsiCo Inc., which acts like an artificial sweeten-
er. It is not FDAapproved and apparently no one knows
just what it is. As Bruce Bradley, consumer food activist,
wrote: “Sweetmyx could be yet another additive that may
trick our taste buds today, but wreak untold damage over our
lifetimes.” The trouble is, manufacturers get to decide
whether food additives are safe or not and whether to bother
to tell the FDAthat the additives are in our food supply.
According to that feature article in Time Magazine, since
1970, we consume 35 percent less refined white sugar, but
we’re getting a whole lot more calories from high fructose
corn syrup (8,853 percent). Add a 198 percent increase in
corn products and we can see where industry is prevailing
— especially Monsanto, the mother of genetically modi-

For us to understand how corporations are taking over our

For instance, in a Aug. 1 story by the Associated Press, we

plant inspections for the first time in 50 years, a move, it
says, could result in 5,000 fewer food borne illnesses each

NEW YORK — Renewed concerns
that tensions could flare up between
Russian and Ukraine pushed U.S.
stocks sharply lower Tuesday.
The market had been moderately
lower all day, weighed down by a dis-
appointing earnings forecast from
retail giant Target and a report on
China that showed the world’s sec-
ond-largest economy was slowing
The selling accelerated in after-
noon trading. The Dow Jones indus-
trial average fell nearly 200 points
at one point, but recovered some of
those losses in the last 30 minutes of
Several traders pointed to news
reports of a buildup in Russian
troops on the Ukraine border and
comments from a Polish politician
that reportedly said Russia was
poised to invade or pressure
Ukraine’s eastern border as catalysts
for the selling.
The developments came after the
most recent round of sanctions were
imposed on Russia by the U.S. and
Europe last week. Russia called
Tuesday for a meeting of the U.N.
Security Council to discuss the situa-
tion in Ukraine.
The Ukraine-Russia tensions were
“outweighing any good economic
data” that investors had to work with
Tuesday, said Tom di Galoma, a bond
trader at ED&F Mann Capital.
The Dow lost 139.81 points, or
0.8 percent, to 16,429.47, the low-
est level for the index since mid-
May. The Standard & Poor’s 500
index lost 18.78 points, or 1 per-
cent, to 1,920.21 and the Nasdaq
composite fell 31.05 points, or 0.7
percent, to 4,352.84.
The tensions between Russia and
Ukraine have been a headache for
investors for months now. However
the stakes are higher than before,
investors say.
With winter a few months away,
Europe’s recovering economy
remains dependent on Russian natu-
ral gas for heat and electricity.
Germany imports nearly all its natu-
ral gas from Russia, and France also
gets a significant amount of its ener-
gy needs from Russia.
“Europe’s economy is far more
exposed to Russia than the U.S.,”
said Randy Frederick, a managing
director at Charles Schwab.
Tuesday’s losses add to what has
been a tough couple of weeks for
U.S. markets. The S&P 500 fell 2.7
percent last week, its worst five-day
performance since June 2012. While
the market did recover some Monday,
Tuesday’s losses wiped out those
gains, leaving the Dow and S&P 500
lower for the week.
International events have been in
the forefront of investors’ minds for
the last two weeks, and have been a
major reason stocks have fallen.
There was the near-failure of a
Portuguese bank, Argentina default-
ing on its bonds, the Israeli-Gaza
conflict on top of the tensions
between the U.S., Europe and Russia
over Ukraine. Strategists say
investors are in a wait-and-see mode.
“Once these geopolitical issues
calm down, we should move higher
from here,” Frederick said.
One sign of investor nervousness
can be seen in the VIX, a financial
instrument that gauges how much
stock market volatility investors
expect in the future. The VIX jumped
10 percent to 16.71 on Tuesday. The
index is trading at levels not seen
since April and was as low as 11 just
two weeks ago. The higher the index
goes, the more turbulence investors
expect to see in the future.
Stocks sink on renewed Russia-Ukraine tensions

LOS ANGELES — Animated hit “Frozen”
continued to help boost The Walt Disney
Co., as the company reported third-quarter
net income that rose 22 percent, topping
analysts’ expectations. The movie sold well
at international box offices and in home
video and lifted merchandise sales.
With another hit — last weekend’s Marvel
superhero epic “Guardians of the Galaxy” —
set to be made into a series, and the first of
its annual “Star Wars” movies to launch next
year, the company is on track for a multi-
year revival of the studio that is lifting
results across its divisions.
And it comes even after Disney delayed
what would have been its only Pixar film of
2014, “The Good Dinosaur.” The movie,
originally slated for a May release, won’t
come out until November 2015.
“The fact that we’re doing as well as we’re
doing without a Pixar film probably says a
lot about what’s up in the future,” CEO Bob
Iger said on a conference call.
Since “Guardians” was released on Friday,
it has pulled down more than $106 million
in North America, adding to the best domes-
tic August opening weekend ever.
This year’s successes, including nearly $1
billion-gross hits “Maleficent” and “Captain
America: Winter Soldier,” represent a huge
turnaround for the studio. Previously, it had
been crippled with what seemed like annual
spring write-downs on bombs such as
“Prince of Persia” (2010), “Mars Needs
Moms” (2011), and “John Carter” (2012).

Pacifica American got some help Tuesday
to clinch a berth in the final four of the Little
League Baseball West Regional playoffs.
Of the original field of six teams, the top
four advance to Friday’s semifinal round on
the road to the Little League World Series.
Despite a 13-2 loss Tuesday to Nevada state
champion Mountain Ridge, Pacifica (1-3)
still advanced to the semis as the No. 4 seed
after winless Utah lost 25-0 to Hawaii.
Although Utah and Arizona — each currently
with 0-3 records — play Wednesday, Pacifica
will win either tiebreaker scenario after fin-
ishing with the same record as the victor.
So, Pacifica is assured of playing an elim-
ination game Friday at 6 p.m. at Al
Houghton Stadium in San Bernardino. The
green-and-gold will take on the No. 1 seed
— either Nevada or Hawaii — which will be
determined after Wednesday’s matchup
between Nevada and Southern California.
The winners of each of the two semifinal
games will play in Saturday’s championship
game at 6 p.m. to determine thoroughfare to
the Little League World Series in
Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
“Any four of the teams can easily win this
thing … and then make some noise in
Williamsport,” Pacifica manager Steve Falk
With his team posting a 1-3 record
through pool play — Pacifica’s first three
losses of the postseason after entering
regional play with 12 consecutive wins —
Falk remains optimistic about Pacifica’s

ing,” Falk said. “But from the very begin-
ning, our goal has been to get into the final

Stevie Johnson had three straight 1,000-yard seasons with Buffalo, before tailing off last
season. the 49ers hope he can revert back to the form that made him one of the top wide
receivers in the league.
By Janie McCauley
SANTA CLARA — Stevie Johnson had pro-
duced three straight 1,000-yard seasons with 23
touchdown catches as Buffalo’s most dynamic
player in the passing game when that streak
ended in frustrating fashion last year.
His 12-game total: 52 catches, 597 yards and
three TDs.
There were injuries, and a tough personal
moment with the unexpected death of his moth-
Now he has a chance to start a new streak with
his new team, back home in the Bay Area. Even
if the skeptics wonder whether he can still show
signs of returning to his former football self.
“That’s with everything. I can’t say that’s my
direct focus. I know there are people who are say-
ing I can’t do it again, I know there are people
saying that I can,” Johnson said. “All I’ve got to
do is put my head down and keep working, work
with my brothers and see how it goes.”
The 28-year-old Johnson, who was born in
San Francisco and went to high school in
Fairfield, came to the 49ers in a trade from the
Bills on the second day of the NFLdraft in May.
In a talented and deep receiving corps, Johnson
is confident he can still have a big impact what-
ever his role.
During one recent practice, he made a leaping
25-yard catch on a pretty pass by Blaine Gabbert
along the right sideline while easily landing
both feet inbounds as an official signaled the
reception. That came a day after Johnson
dropped a ball in the end zone.
He will get his first game action chance in
Thursday’s preseason opener at Baltimore.
“Stevie is Stevie. He gets open. He makes
plays. Very excited to see what he does in live
action for us,” quarterback Colin Kaepernick said
Tuesday before the team departed for the East
Coast. “Stevie’s a pro. He’s picked up the offense
quickly. He makes very few mistakes in the little
time that he’s been here. As a quarterback, you
like to see that.”
With the Bills, Johnson became the first play-
er in team history to reach 1,000 yards receiving
in consecutive seasons. He spent the past four
seasons as a starter in Buffalo, yet will have to
compete for playing time in this receivers group

As a 5-foot-6 point guard, decorated
WNBA veteran Becky Hammon has never
had the experience of shattering a back-
board with a dunk.
She’s busting through the glass ceiling
The San Antonio Spurs hired Hammon as
an assistant coach on Tuesday, making her
the first full-time, paid
female assistant on an
NBA coaching staff .
When Hammon retires
from her 16-year WNBA
career at the end of the
San Antonio Stars’ sea-
son, she will immediately
move to the staff of the
defending NBA champi-
ons, working with the
revered Gregg Popovich on scouting, game-
planning and the day-to-day grind of prac-
tice like no woman has ever done before.
“Nothing in my life has really ever been
easy. I’ve always been someone who did it
uphill,” Hammon said. “I’m up for chal-
lenges. I’m up for being outside the box,
making tough decisions and challenges. ...
And I’m a little bit of an adrenaline junkie.
Throw those all in there and this was the
perfect challenge and opportunity. ”
That makes her fit right in with the Spurs,
an organization with a reputation for bold
decisions. Popovich and general manager
R.C. Buford have long been at the forefront
of the league’s international influx and ear-
lier this summer hired European coaching
legend Ettore Messina as an assistant.

What began, essentially, as a comment in
passing turned into a nearly two-year
odyssey, culminating in the Peninsula
Thunder under-13 girls’ soccer team partici-
pating in the Gothia Cup soccer tournament
in Sweden last month.
“At the end of 2012, I had a conversation
with my boss and he mentioned this tourna-
ment,” said Thunder coach Henry Adams,
who is also co-coach at Bowditch Middle
School. “I just kind of mentioned it in pass-
ing to a couple of parents and it spread like
The Gothia Cup is the largest youth soccer
tournament in the world, with nearly 1,600
teams from 80 nations participating.
The 20-member Thunder — which includ-
ed the players, a pair of chaperones and
Adams — spent two weeks in Europe, the
first in Denmark to acclimate to playing in
Europe before heading to Sweden to partici-
pate in the Gothia Cup.
The Thunder compiled a 3-1-1 record in
Sweden. They went 2-0-1 to finish first in
their four-team pool to qualify for the “A”
single-elimination tournament. They won
their first game in bracket play before they
ran out of gas in a 2-0 loss to Boo FF, which
eliminated the Thunder from the tournament.
There was a lot of work to do, however,
between deciding to participate in the tour-
nament and actually touching down in
Scandinavia almost two years later. The
team spent 22 months fundraising for the
trip. Peggy Toye, a parent of one of the girls
on the team, said they did everything from
bake sales to raffles to a mother-daughter tea
party. She said every week for two months,
they attended a farmers’ market to sell cook-
ies to raise money to send the team to
In addition, the program drummed up
sponsorships from local businesses to help
offset the cost of the trip.
“We raised about 60 to 70 percent of the
money,” Adams said. He said it cost each

Folks know Jonathan Engelmann can hit.
In the spring, the junior slugger captured
the Burlingame team Triple Crown with a
.412 batting average, two home runs and 17
RBIs. Through the summer though,
Engelmann has displayed a range of tools to
emerge as a promising amateur prospect on
the national baseball scene.
Engelmann is one of three San Mateo
County players currently taking part in the
Area Code Games, a showcase of approxi-
mately 225 amateur players from around the
nation playing in a six-day exhibition league
from Aug. 4-9 at Long Beach’s Blair Field.
Also playing on the Oakland Athletics team
— comprised of the elite high school talent
from Northern California — is Menlo-
Atherton pitcher Matt McGarry and Serra out-
fielder Chris Papapietro.
The Athletics — managed by Oakland A’s
area scout Jermaine Clark — are off to a 1-0-1
start. After finishing in a 3-3 tie with the
Royals Monday on opening day, Tuesday the
Athletics rallied in their final at-bat to top the
Royals 6-3. Engelmann has had three hits
through two games, including a pinch-hit
single Monday and an RBI double Tuesday
amid a three-run rally in the third inning.
“I’ve been hitting the ball really well,”
Engelmann said. “I’m striving to hit more
extra-base hits as the summer has gone along.
I’ve made some adjustments with some coach-
es and … am hitting in the middle of the line-
up and driving guys in and getting it done.”
Offensive production is just a day in the life
for the 6-4 Engelmann. The surprise has come
with his smooth transition to center field.
Before transferring to Burlingame as a soph-
omore, Engelmann was a freshman third base-
man with the varsity squad at Aragon. With
the Panthers in 2013, he moved over to first
base. During his junior season, he blossomed
as a right fielder.
But midway through the summer with his
travel-ball team Nor Cal Baseball, Engelmann
made the conversion to center field. And with
his combination of speed and arm strength, he
seems to have found a home there.
“I’ve just kind of found a home out there and
found success,” Engelmann said. “It’s my
favorite position to play.”
Even for a big man, Engelmann has always
been able to run. He’s stolen 29 bases in two
years at Burlingame. And he’s made strides
towards improving on the base-running tool
this summer. During the Perfect Game
National Showcase in Fort Myers, Florida
held June 14-17, Engelmann ran a 6.75 sec-
ond 60-yard dash, he said. This week in Long
Beach, he set a new personal best with a 6.68
second 60, he said. Also, his throwing veloc-
ity from the outfield clocked at 94 mph.
Engelmann was chosen to play for the
Athletics after a tryout in July at the Stockton
Ports’ home yard, Banner Island Ballpark.
The tryout culminated in one 10-inning exhi-
bition game with 17 players in each team’s
lineup. It made for a long day, especially with
the most promising young pitching arms in
Northern California on display.
“At this level, it’s very pitcher heavy
because the pitchers are developed more than
the hitters are,” Engelmann said. “You get
guys throwing 90 mph and it’s tough for high
school kids to catch up to. But it was a good
While Engelmann only received two at-
bats in the exhibition, he played eight
innings in center field. The result was his
landing on the Athletics Area Code Game
team, along with his Nor Cal Baseball team-
mate, McGarry.
“It’s actually really good to be around him
because he’s a guy,” Engelmann said. “He’s
committed to Vanderbilt. He’s potentially
going to be a good, high-round draft pick in
the future, whether that’s this upcoming year
or three years down the road out of Vanderbilt.
Being around him, it really helps my game.”
The Area Code Games consist of eight
teams, with each national region being spon-
sored by a big-league organization. The
Northern California region is sponsored by
the Athletics, but is coached by a myriad of
scouts from nine different affiliated organiza-
tions, including San Francisco Giants area
scout Keith Snider.
The rest of the league is comprised of the
Chicago White Sox, Midwest region; the
Cincinnati Reds, Four Corners and Hawaii;
the Kansas City Royals, Pacific Northwest;
the Milwaukee Brewers, Southern California;
the Texas Rangers, Texas and Louisiana; and
the Washington Nationals, Southeast and

IRVINE — Missy Franklin was as successful
in the classroom during her first year of college
as the four-time Olympic gold medalist is in the
She scored all A’s taking four classes during
her second semester at the University of
“I was like, ‘This is like eight best times,”’
she said Tuesday. “I remember calling my par-
ents, and that was just one of those moments
where it’s exactly like going a best time.
You’ve put in all that work and all that effort,
and you get an amazing reward.”
Before she begins her sophomore year at
Berkeley, Franklin is competing in her biggest
meet of the year starting Wednesday. She is set
to swim four events at U.S. nationals in Irvine,
California, where berths on the American team
for the Pan Pacific Championships later this
month and next year’s world championships
are at stake.
Franklin will swim the 100-meter freestyle
on Wednesday, an event that includes fellow
Olympians Allison Schmitt, Natalie Coughlin,
and Katie Ledecky. Franklin follows that up
with a double on Thursday in the 200 free and
200 backstroke, and the 200 back on Saturday.
Four years ago in Irvine, Franklin was danc-
ing on the deck to Justin Bieber’s music as a
16-year-old at nationals.
“Chances are you’ll probably see me doing
that again,” the self-described “huge dork”
Fast-forward and Franklin said she’s “still
the exact same person who’s sitting up here
right now, still just that exuberant, loving-life
girl who is swimming, and that’s all that mat-
ters. I get the opportunity to do what I love
every single day.”
Three months into his comeback, Michael
Phelps is competing at nationals for the first
time in two years. He will swim four events, his
most ambitious schedule yet since returning to
competition in April.
“I still have goals and things that I want to
achieve, and I enjoy competing more than any-
thing else,” he said.
Phelps and old rival Ryan Lochte will square
off in all the same events, and Lochte has
something to prove, too. The three-time
Olympian is coming off major knee surgery,
and no one is quite sure what to expect from
“My knee has been doing really good,” he
said. “It’s back to 100 percent. I’m doing
everything I could do before knee surgery.”
Lochte finished behind Phelps in the 100
butterfly and the 100 backstroke at a meet in
Georgia last month.
“I’m glad he’s back,” said Lochte, who
reminded everyone that he had correctly pre-
dicted Phelps would un-retire. “It’s definitely
good for the sport and it helps me out, too, just
because we push each other. He’s one of the
best in swimming, and I always like a chal-

MILWAUKEE — Giants manager Bruce
Bochy was wondering what exactly is the def-
inition of conclusive.
Gerardo Parra snapped a tie with a home run
in the seventh — his first hit since been
acquired by the Brewers — and Milwaukee
recorded the final out of its 4-3 victory
Tuesday night against San Francisco when a
replay review overturned a safe call at first
“I didn’t think they were going to overturn
it,” Bochy said. “I just don’t see how it got
overturned. It was so close. You always hear
the word ‘conclusive.’ But they did, and that
is the game.”
With two outs in the ninth, Brewers closer
Frankie Rodriguez walked Hunter Pence. Joe
Panik then bounced to second baseman
Rickie Weeks, who was shielded on the play
by Pence before making the throw to first.
Brewers managed Ron Roenicke challenged
the safe call by first base umpire Hal Gibson,
which was overturned after a review of about
3 minutes, 17 seconds.
“It was bang-bang. It was really, really
close,” said Rodriguez, who pitched the ninth
for his 33rd save. “That’s why I didn’t make
any gestures about it. It
was tough. In the end,
they got it right, which is
the thing that matters the
The victory preserved
the Brewers one-game lead
in the NLCentral Division
over St. Louis, which ral-
lied past Boston 3-2.
Pittsburgh fell 2 1-2
games back after losing to Miami, 6-3. The
Giants went into Tuesday 1 1-2 games behind
the front-running Dodgers in the NLWest.
“ They are all so big now,” Bochy said.
“Every game is so important. Two teams are
playing for a lot here. Very similar teams,
hard fought game.”
Parra, acquired at the trade deadline from
Arizona, homered with two outs off reliever
Jean Machi (6-1).
The Giants erased a 3-0 deficit on Pablo
Sandoval’s three-run homer in the sixth off
rookie Jimmy Nelson (2-2), who allowed
three runs in six hits in seven innings.
“Pablo really delivered for us,” Bochy said.
“You’d like to win a game when you make a
nice comeback like that. We are in August,
they are not do-or-die games but they are real-
l y, really important.”
Carlos Gomez staked the Brewers to a 2-0
lead in the third with his 16th home run off
Tim Lincecum.
Gomez also drove in the Brewers third run
in the fifth on a perfect squeeze bunt after
Weeks advanced to third on a two-out wild
Notes: Parra’s home run off Machi snapped
a streak of 23 1-3 consecutive scoreless
innings by the Giants bullpen. “(Machi) just
left that pitch up,” Bochy said.
Despite battling back to tie the game, the
Giants fell to 16-40 when the other team
scores first, compared with 45-12 when they
score the first run.
Nelson’s third-inning single was his sec-
ond hit in his last three at-bats, which fol-
lowed 66 hitless at-bats as a professional, 59
in the minors and his first seven with the
Brewers. “Even down there, I was making
good contact, it just wasn’t falling,” Nelson
said. “My strikeouts were down from the first
year, I was actually making more contact, but
hitting them right at guys. They had to start
falling sometime.”
Brewers shortstop Segura made a sensa-
tional play behind second, spinning to throw
out Pence at first to apparently end the third
inning. But Bochy challenged the call and it
was overturned.

OAKLAND — Jason Hammel pitched
scoreless ball into the sixth inning to
snap a four-start losing streak since
being traded to Oakland, leading the
Athletics past the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 on
Tuesday night.
Hammel (1-4) allowed seven hits and
four walks in 5 2-3 innings. He entered
the game with a 9.53 ERA since the A’s
acquired him and Jeff Samardzija from the
Chicago Cubs on July 4.
Coco Crisp singled home a run in the
fifth and Nate Freiman hit an RBI double
during a two-run sixth to spoil Drew
Smyly’s debut with Tampa Bay. Smyly (6-
10) gave up all three runs, seven hits and
two walks, including one intentional, in
5 1-3 innings.
The left-hander was traded from Detroit
last week in the three-team deal that sent
ace David Price to the Tigers.
The Rays committed three errors in an
unusually sloppy per-
formance from manager
Joe Maddon’s club.
Tampa Bay has lost
three straight and five
of six after an 11- 1
It was still a far better
performance for Smyly
than his last start in
Oakland, when he
allowed six runs — including four home
runs — in Detroit’s 10-0 loss on May 26.
But the Rays couldn’t crack Hammel, who
pitched for Tampa Bay from 2006-08, or
any of the pitchers the major-league lead-
ing A’s threw their way.
Three relievers tossed scoreless ball
before Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect
ninth for his 17th save in 20 tries.
Oakland broke through in the fifth on
Crisp’s RBI single. The A’s center fielder
and speedy leadoff man had not started
since July 26 because of a strained neck.
Freiman hit an RBI double and Josh
Reddick singled home another run in the
sixth to give the A’s a 3-0 lead.
Hammel left to a standing ovation in
the sixth. He saluted the announced crowd
of 16,335 as he walked to the dugout a
winner for the first time in Oakland.
Notes: Outfielder Wil Myers, on the 60-
day disabled list with a broken right
wrist, went through an extensive workout
and drills for the second straight day in
Port Charlotte, Florida. The Rays could
decide by the end of the week when Myers
begins his rehab assignment.
Shortstop Jed Lowrie sat out with a
bruised right index finger. He is day to
day. First baseman Kyle Blanks (left calf
injury) ran the bases and will do so again
Thursday before Oakland decides whether
to send him out on a rehab assignment.
Jeremy Hellickson (0-1, 3.29) tries to
snap his six start winless streak, which
dates back to Sept. 4, 2013. Sonny Gray
(12-4, 2.59) goes in the series finale after
winning AL Pitcher of the Month for July.

player about $3,400 for the trip and parents had to chip in
anywhere from $1,300 to $1,400.
“There were two or three parents who lived this thing for
about two years,” Adams said. “They spent a lot of time on
The original plan was to play in two tournaments — in
addition to the Gothia Cup, there was talk of playing in a
tuneup tournament in Denmark.
“To play in two tournaments over two weeks was a lot, so
we scaled it back a little bit,” Adams said.
Instead, they went to Denmark and played a scrimmage
against a local squad before participating in a friendly tour-
nament to prepare the girls for the rigors of European play.
“The Denmark play, though it was physical, it wasn’t as
intense. It was just to get over the jet lag and some playing
time in,” Adams said.
When the Thunder got to Sweden, they realized they were
no longer in the United States.
“The style of play was very physical, very fast,” Adams
said. “And the refs were very liberal [in their interpretations
of] fouls.”
Adams said his team was knocked around by Vaksala in the
opening minutes of their first game of the Gothia Cup. But
when they got to halftime scoreless, Adams said the team
realized it could compete.
“The first 10 minutes of the first game was really scary. I
did not think the girls would bounce out of the shock of what
happened,” Adams said. “But I gotta tell you, for having
traveled almost 6,000 miles to a strange land without their
parents, to get banged around and to come out with a victo-
ry, it put them into a mindset of what they had to do to com-
pete in this tournament.”
The Thunder went on to beat Vaksala 1-0, scoring in the
final minute to pull out the win.
Vaksala, which Adams said had advanced to the quarterfi-
nals of the tournament the previous year, “did not take [the
loss] well.”
The Thunder followed that with a 1-0 win over Hittarps
and ended pool play with a scoreless tie against Sodemore.
In the first round of the single-elimination bracket, the
Thunder experienced their first deficit of the tournament,
trailing Gimonas 1-0 at halftime. But the Thunder rallied for
a pair of late second-half goals to pull out the win.
“[We] definitely felt elated after winning the first game of
the single-elimination tournament,” Adams said.
After that, however, the deck was kind of stacked against
the Thunder. After beating Gimonas in the morning, they
had to come back that same afternoon to face Boo FF, which
had played in the championship match the previous season.
Unlike the Thunder, however, Boo FF did not have a morn-
ing game and spent its down time scouting the Thunder. That
knowledge, along with the fact the Thunder had played ear-
lier in the day and Boo FF was one of the best teams in the
tournament, all contributed to the Thunder’s 2-0 loss.
“Going into that second game (against Boo FF), we were
physically kind of spent,” Adams said.
The Thunder held Boo FF scoreless in the first half, but
Boo FF rallied for a pair of second-half goals to eliminate
the Thunder.
While the Thunder failed to bring home a championship,
they did manage to bring home something more valuable —
the experience. Toye said her daughter has been
Instagramming foreign players she befriended during her
time in Europe.
The Thunder also proved that Americans are rapidly catch-
ing up to the rest of the world in soccer.
“I couldn’t be prouder of this group of kids,” Adams said.

PORTLAND, Ore. — By the time the MLS All-Star game rolls
around on Wednesday night, coach Caleb Porter will have had
two training sessions with his All-Stars.
Yes, just two practices to prepare for Bundesliga champion
Bayern Munich.
Porter is hoping his side has some fast learners.
“It’s a celebration of these players, their careers,” said Porter,
coach of the host Portland Timbers. “Hopefully, we can make it
a competitive game and try to make it exciting with a lot of
good attacking players.”
Ultimately the game is an exhibition, and Porter said his
main job — besides putting on a good show — is to return the
players to their teams with no injuries.
The All-Star game is part of a summer exhibition tour for
Bayern Munich, which hasn’t visited the United States in a
decade. The team defeated Chivas Guadalajara 1-0 last Thursday
night at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey.
Winner of 19 straight matches at one point last season,
Bayern Munich brings six players from the German national
team that won the World Cup this summer, including Mario
Goetze and Thomas Mueller. But coach Pep Guardiola said not
to expect them to play more than about 15 minutes apiece.
The MLS team will also include several players from the U.S.
World Cup team that advanced out of the group stage in Brazil,
including Seattle’s Clint Dempsey and Toronto’s Michael
“We just played against these players on the biggest stage in
the world. I think in the past, the All-Star teams have had only
a few days to come together, but it’s a little bit different this
year because most of us are used to playing together on the
national team,” said Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando,
who was also on the U.S. national team.
The MLS All-Stars hope to have six players from the U.S.
team on the available roster. On Tuesday, midfielder Kyle
Beckerman of Real Salt Lake had to withdraw because of an
unspecified injury.
Omar Gonzalez and Robbie Keane of the L.A. Galaxy both
made the team but also had to bow out. The Galaxy did send for-
ward Landon Donovan, who is appearing in his record 14th All-
Star game.
Aplayer to watch on Bayern Munich’s side is 19-year-old
Julian Green, who played for the United States in Brazil and
became the youngest American player to score in the World Cup
with a goal against Belgium.
Green, who was born in Florida but grew up in Germany, has
dual citizenship. With Bayern Munich since 2010, Green is
vying to make his debut with the club’s senior side this season.
He’ll likely see more play than Bayern’s other World Cup stars.

four, and then anything is possi-
The team will have its full depth
of pitching available Friday, after
Falk removed starting pitcher
Elijah Ricks from Tuesday’s game
amid a 2-1 score to keep him under
the 50-pitch limit and enabling
him to pitch in two days’ time.
“We didn’t really go at
[Mountain Ridge] with our full
arsenal,” Falk said.
Pacifica kept within striking dis-
tance, and after Ricks departed
from the mound the team even tied
it 2-2 in the bottom of the third.
But once Pacifica went to its
bullpen, the Mountain Ridge
offense scored 11 unanswered runs
over the final three innings to turn
its win into a rout. Of the four
relievers utilized by Pacifica,
Justice Turner and Spencer Karalius
were making their postseason
debuts on the mound, and Mateo
Jimenez had pitched just 2/3 of an
inning in one previous appear-
In the first inning, the typically
clutch Pacifica defense continued
to struggle in San Bernardino.
With help from two Pacifica errors,
Mountain Ridge got on the board
in the opening frame. In the sec-
ond, Mountain Ridge produced
three straight singles and a bases-
loaded walk to go up 2-0.
Pacifica came back to tie it with
single runs in the second and third
though. In the second, Turner drew
a lead off walk. Nate Azzopardi fol-
lowed with a one-out single to
move Turner to third. Tyler Shaw
then delivered an RBI single to
center to score Turner, closing the
deficit to 2-1.
In the third, Ricks led off with
his second home run in as many
days — a lofty, opposite-field shot
to right-center — to tie it at 2-2.
But once Pacifica went to the
bullpen, Mountain Ridge went
large. In the fourth, Brennan
Holligan launched a two-run home
run. Then after Bradley Stone
tripled, he stole home to give
Mountain Ridge a 5-2 lead. In the
fifth, Mountain Ridge loaded the
bases with no outs before Austin
Kryszczuk—who has homered in
each of Mountain Ridge’s three
West Regional games — hit a
booming grand slam to give his
team a 9-2 lead. In the sixth,
Mountain Ridge again loaded the
bases before Stone walked to force
home one run. Andrew Matulich
followed with a double to clear the
bases, capping the day’s scoring.
Stone earned the win, working 3
1/3 innings while surrendering
two runs (one earned) on six hits.
Zachary Hare closed it out with 2/3
innings of work to tab the save.
Ricks took the loss through 2 1/3
Ricks tabbed his third multi-hit
game of the tournament, and the
only for Pacifica, going 2 for 2. He
is now 8 for 12 with two home runs
and six RBIs through four games in
the tourney.
And despite a 1-3 record through
pool play, Pacifica now finds itself
just two wins away from
“They’ve got a lot of fight in
them,” Falk said. “I don’t think
they’re done just yet.”
Pacifica clinched the No. 4 seed
by virtue of two different tiebreak-
er bylaws. If Arizona defeats Utah
Wednesday, Pacifica would win the
tiebreaker based on having defeat-
ed Arizona in heads-up play 7-3
Saturday. If Utah, which has not
played Pacifica, defeats Arizona,
Pacifica wins the tiebreaker based
on having given up less runs in the
tourney than Utah. Pacifica has
given up 35 runs through four
games. Utah has given up 51 runs
through its first three games.
Friday’s semifinal will be broad-
cast on ESPN2. Saturday’s champi-
onship game can be seen at 6 p.m.
on ESPN.

Oakland bust RHP Johnson,
Tigers reach minors deal
NEW YORK — A person who
reviewed the deal tells the
Associated Press that free-agent
reliever Jim Johnson and the
Detroit Tigers have agreed to a
minor league contract.
The person spoke on condition
of anonymity because there was
no official announcement. The
Tigers played at Yankee Stadium
on Tuesday night.
Johnson had a major league-best
51 saves for Baltimore in 2012,
and then tied for the big league
lead last year with 50. The Orioles
traded him to Oakland last winter,
and he wasn’t able to regain his
form with the Athletics.
The 31-year-old right-hander
was 4-2 with a 7.14 ERA in 38
games with the A’s. Johnson was
designated for assignment on July

— the best that fourth-year quarterback
Kaepernick has seen so far.
Kaepernick has quickly found a rhythm
with Johnson, saying that was “pretty easy”
given the separation the athletic 6-foot-2
wideout creates.
“Very quick, very deceptive, and I’m happy
he’s on our side of the ball,” Kaepernick said.
Best suited to play an inside slot position,
Johnson has 301 total receptions for 3,842
yards and 28 touchdowns. Much like new
teammate and fellow receiver Anquan Boldin,
Johnson has been known to show his emo-
tions and let loose while celebrating.
Yet now, Johnson seems determined to
keep his mouth shut and show that he can
still be the dominant playmaker he once was.
“Yeah, for sure. When you come off three
straight 1,000 (yard seasons) and you don’t
get it the year after that, it’s always, ‘You’ve
got to get better.’ You feel like you’ve got to
be better than last year,” he said. “That’s the
goal collectively as a team. The Niners, they
didn’t win a Super Bowl, and we feel we have
to get there and win.”
Not only was Johnson slowed by injuries,
he was excused by the team for the final two
games of the season following the death of
his mother.
Afresh start is welcome out West, where as
a boy he used to throw rocks into San
Francisco Bay off Candlestick Point. A bit
bummed out he won’t play in The Stick,
Johnson sees this as an opportunity to help
San Francisco establish some momentum in
its sparkling new $1.2 billion Levi’s
There are expectations playing close to
home, too.
“That’s just like the 1,000-yard thing,”
Johnson said. “It’s good to be home but at
the same time it’s kind of tough because you
have everybody in your ear. You can take it
either way. I’m an optimistic type of guy, so
I think it’s cool. Every day is cool so far.”

Boyer into the team’s practices and some
games. Boyer, now an assistant at South
Carolina, was not paid by the Cavaliers and
did not travel with the team, but did work
with the players and coaches that season.
“I very much look forward to the addition
of Becky Hammon to our staff,” Popovich
said in a statement released by the team.
“Having observed her working with our
team this past season, I’m confident her
basketball IQ, work ethic and interpersonal
skills will be a great benefit to the Spurs.”
But Popovich and Buford were not avail-
able in person and Hammon had the spot-
light entirely to herself.
“Congratulations to Becky on today’s
announcement,” Boyer said in a statement.
“It’s a great thing for her and for the NBA. I
am still so thankful to John Lucas for giv-
ing me the opportunity to work with his
NBA team during my time with the
Cleveland Rockers. His staff and players
welcomed me as a coach, and it was an
incredible experience for me to spend that
season with them.”
Last season, Hammon attended Spurs
practices, film sessions and sat behind the
bench at home game after suffering a torn
ACL that kept her from playing. She’s been
friends with Tony Parker and Tim Duncan
since competing in an NBAAll-Star shoot-
ing competition in 2008, a familiarity that
will help as she makes her transition to
coaching the two stars.
“As far as women coaching men, it’s real-
ly silly. People ask me all the time, will
there ever be a woman player in the NBA?”
Hammon said. “To be honest, no. There are
differences. The guys are too big, too strong
and that’s just the way it is.
“But when it comes to things of the mind,
things like coaching, game-planning, com-
ing up with offensive and defensive
schemes, there’s no reason why a woman
couldn’t be in the mix and shouldn’t be in
the mix.”
It’s been a long time coming for female
basketball players and coaches who have
long dreamed of getting a chance in the
“I was so excited and pleased and the one
thing that people have to remember is that
the San Antonio Spurs don’t do anything for
effect,” said Nancy Lieberman, a former star
player who was a head coach in the NBA
Development League in 2009 and now
serves as the GM of the Texas Legends.
“That’s not who they are. They don’t do this
for the record-breaking barrier. They do
things out of respect.
“And the fact that coach Popovich has
this much respect for Becky’s basketball IQ,
for how she handles herself with the guys in
practice, her ability to relate to them, I’m
sure he saw so much when she was working
with them last fall. I’m sure he didn’t hire
her because she was a woman. I’m sure he
hired her because she was the best person for
the job.”

Raiders tight end
Ausberry to have knee surgery
NAPA— Oakland Raiders projected starting
tight end David Ausberry is scheduled to have
knee surgery and will miss Friday’s preseason
opener against Minnesota.
Ausberry has not practiced this week and did
not attend Tuesday’s workout as a spectator, like
the rest of Oakland’s injured players. Coach
Dennis Allen was tightlipped when discussing
the issue and didn’t disclose the exact nature of
the injury or what knee Ausberry hurt.
Aseventh-round draft pick, Ausberry missed
all of 2013 after suffering a serious shoulder
injury during the Raiders second preseason
game in New Orleans. He later underwent sur-
gery and was placed on season-ending injured
Despite that, Ausberry was listed as Oakland’s
starter when the team released the first depth
chart of camp.
Man charged with
urinating on Modell’s grave
TOWSON, Md. — Police say charges have
been filed against a Cleveland Browns fan
who is accused of urinating on the grave of
former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell
and posting a video of it on YouTube.
Modell died in 2012 at age 87 and is
buried at a Pikesville, Maryland, cemetery.
He spent 43 years as an NFL owner, over-
seeing the Browns from 1961 until he
moved the team to Baltimore in 1996 to
become the Ravens. The move left many
Browns fans bitter.
Baltimore County Police said Tuesday
that 61-year-old Paul S. Serbu of Franklin,
Ohio, has been charged with disorderly con-
duct in a cemetery, a misdemeanor. Apolice
news release describes him as a Browns fan.
Serbu could face up to two years in jail and
a $500 fine.

Moroccan to swim
from Alaska to Russia
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A 27-year-old
man is headed to the Bering Strait as part of
his goal to be the first Moroccan to swim
between every continent.
KTVA reports Hassan Baraka plans to
swim 3 miles from Little Diomede Island,
Alaska, to Big Diomede Island, Russia,
However, he said Monday during a prac-
tice swim in Anchorage that the Russian
government hadn’t yet given permission
for him to come ashore.
There is a backup plan if he doesn’t get
the OK. Instead, he’ll swim to Little
Diomede from the international dateline.
Previous swims have taken him from
Morocco to Spain and the Bosporus Strait,
separating Europe from Asia.
The swim is intended to bring awareness
to coastal issues, and he wants to show the
world that borders don’t have to divide peo-

For the first couple weeks of corn season,
my family is content to eat plain old corn
on the cob day after day. And why not? It’s
perfect as is.
But even perfection gets boring after a
while, which is why I tend to fancy up our
corn-centric preparations as we get deeper
into the season. In this case, I dreamed up a
large, family-style, open-faced dinner
omelet. I was inspired by my own dear son,
Sam, who likes to toss leftover corn into
his morning omelet.
Before diving into the recipe, let’s spend
a minute making sure you’re cooking with
the best corn. If possible, you want not
only to buy it from a farm stand or farmers
market, but to do so in the morning.
Presumably, the farmer will have picked it
earlier that very day, which allows you to
take it home, store it in the fridge, and cook
it that evening.
The idea is to slow down the relentless
conversion of the corn’s sugar to starch,
which begins the minute an ear is plucked
off a stalk and accelerates if the corn is then
left in a warm place, including in a bin at the
farm stand or on a shelf in your garage.
How will you know if an ear is fully
ripened? By figuring out if it’s covered with
kernels from stem to stern, a fact you can
ascertain by feeling it from the outside. If it
feels skinny at the top, put it back in the
bi n.
Now that you’ve carried your prize home,
it’s time to cut the corn off the cob. My
favorite way is to peel off the husk, leaving
on the stem, then to stand the ear on its stem
on a large piece of kitchen parchment and
cut straight down the sides. Chef Joey
Altman, a pal of mine from the San
Francisco area, prefers to lay the ear on its
side before cutting. I will admit that his
method prevents the kernels from flying off
wildly, but I still prefer mine, which allows

WASHINGTON — Starting Tuesday,
“gluten free” labels on packaged foods
have real meaning. Until now, the term
“gluten-free” was unregulated, and manu-
facturers made their own decisions about
what it means.
This new requirement is especially
important for people who suffer from celi-
ac disease and don’t absorb nutrients well.
They can get sick from the gluten found in
wheat and other cereal grains.
Under a rule announced a year ago, food
manufacturers had until this week to ensure
that anything labeled gluten-free contains
less than 20 parts per million of gluten —
ensuring that those products are technical-
ly free of wheat, rye and barley. That
amount is generally recognized by the
medical community to be low enough so
that most people who have celiac disease
won’t get sick if they eat it.
Currently, wheat must be labeled on food
packages but barley and rye are often hid-
den ingredients.
Celiac disease causes abdominal pain,
bloating and diarrhea, and people who
have it can suffer weight loss, fatigue,
rashes and other long-term medical prob-
lems. Celiac is a diagnosed illness that is
more severe than gluten sensitivity, which
some people self-diagnose. According to
the American Celiac Disease Alliance, an
estimated 3 million Americans have celiac
A decade ago, most people had never
heard of celiac. But awareness and diagno-
sis of the illness have grown exponential-
ly in recent years. It’s not entirely clear
why. Some researchers say it was under-
diagnosed; others say it’s because people
eat more processed wheat products, such as
pasta and baked goods, than in past
decades, and those items use types of
wheat that have a higher gluten content.
The standard will ensure that companies
can’t label products “gluten-free” if they
are cross-contaminated from other prod-
ucts made in the same manufacturing facil-
i t y. The rules don’t apply to restaurants,
but the Food and Drug Administration is
encouraging them to comply.
Gluten-free foods have become big busi-
ness in the last several years, topping an
estimated $4 billion in sales last year.
Millions of people are buying the foods
because they say they make them feel bet-
ter, even if they don’t have celiac disease.
Alice Bast of the National Foundation
for Celiac Awareness says the gluten-free
trend has been good for those diagnosed
with celiac because of the increased variety
of options in the grocery store. But she
says it also may have prompted some com-
panies to lose focus on the people who
need those foods the most.
The new regulations are “raising aware-
ness that there is a disease associated with
the gluten-free diet,” she said.
Steve Hughes, CEO of Boulder Brands,
which owns leading gluten-free food com-
panies Glutino and Udi’s, says his compa-
ny’s products all have 10 parts per million
of gluten, less than the new standard. He
praises the FDA regulations for being a
“stake in the ground” that can increase the
integrity of the gluten-free market.
“If consumers can’t have confidence in
the products long-term, it’s going to hurt
the overall trend,” he said.

me to see what I’m doing more clearly and
allows for better control.
Summer also happens to be high season
for everyone’s notoriously fertile zucchini,
which have likely already overrun the gar-
den and now are threatening to crawl into
the house. This recipe will put a dent in
them, too. You’re going to grate and salt
them to rid them of excess water and con-
centrate their flavor. Then you’ll add them to
your omelet, along with caramelized onion,
to make the finished product moist but not
watery. (I often use shredded zucchini as my
secret moisture weapon.)
What turns this omelet into a dish fit for
din-din? Smoked salmon and a lemon cream
made with Greek yogurt, which is high-pro-
tein and low-fat (and wonderfully creamy).
Of course, the eggs are an additional source
of protein. This dish is surprisingly sub-
stantial. Add a nice green salad on the side
and you’ll be rolling.
Start to finish: 50 minutes
Servings: 4
1 pound zucchini, coarsely shredded
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 cups fresh corn kernels
8 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Ground black pepper
4 ounces smoked salmon, cut into thin
Chopped fresh dill, to garnish
Heat the oven to 350 F.
In a colander, toss the zucchini with 1/2
teaspoon of the salt and let the mixture
stand over the sink for 10 minutes.
In a large, oven-safe nonstick skillet,
heat the oil over medium. Add the onion and
cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Set
Using your hands, squeeze small hand-
fuls of the zucchini to discard as much
water as possible. Add the squeezed zuc-
chi ni t o t he ski l l et wi t h t he oni on.
Return the skillet to medium heat and
cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
Stir in the corn, eggs and the remaining
teaspoon of salt. Cook, lifting up the edges
of the omelet to let the uncooked egg mix-
ture flow underneath, until the omelet is
mostly set. Transfer the omelet to the oven
and bake for 5 minutes, or until the top is
just set.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the
yogurt, lemon zest and lemon juice. Season
with salt and pepper. To serve, cut the
omelet into wedges and top each portion
with a quarter of the salmon and lemon
cream, as well as a sprinkling of dill.

For most of us, piping hot, slathered with
butter and sprinkled with salt really is the
best way to enjoy corn on the cob.
Our only gripe with it? It’s so good, we
tend to forget that fresh corn doesn’t need to
be cooked to be delicious. In fact, raw corn
eaten right off the cob is easily one of the
freshest, sweetest ways to capture the taste
of summer. And adding raw corn kernels is
an easy way to push just about any salad
over the top.
The best way to cut kernels from an ear of
corn — cooked or otherwise — is to stand
each ear on its wide end on a cutting board.
Then use a serrated to knife to saw down the
side of the cob, cutting just deep enough to
slice off the kernels. Rotate the cob and saw
down again, repeating until all of the ker-
nels are removed.
Not ready to go raw? Here are two recipes
— a corn and edamame succotash and a corn
and sausage-rich “gravy” that’s a meal unto
itself — that still get you thinking beyond
the basic cob.
Start to finish: 25 minutes
Servings: 8
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
Pinch of red pepper flakes
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored and chopped
4 ears corn, kernels removed
1 cup shelled edamame
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
In a large deep skillet over medium-high,
melt the butter. Add the garlic, onion and red
pepper flakes, then saute for 4 to 5 minutes,
or until tender.
Add the celery, red pepper, corn kernels
and edamame. Cook for another 4 to 5 min-
utes. Stir in the tomatoes, thyme and
chives, then season with salt and pepper.
Cook for another 2 minutes. Serve warm or
at room temperature.

total calories); 6 g fat (3 g saturated; 0 g
trans fats); 10 mg cholesterol; 15 g carbo-

140 mg sodium.
This gravy is robust enough that adding
just a bit of bread turns it into a meal. Try it
over a thick slab of toasted sourdough or
warm biscuits.
Start to finish: 25 minutes
Servings: 6
1 pound loose breakfast or sweet Italian
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 cup corn kernels, cut from 1 ear of corn
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
1/4 cup finely sliced scallions
In a medium saucepan over medium-high,
saute the sausage, onion and corn until all
are browned, about 10 minutes. Add the flour
and stir to coat well. Add the milk and bring
to a simmer, stirring constantly, for about 5
minutes, or until thickened. Season with
salt and pepper, then stir in the scallions.

It’s hard to improve on the delicious simplicity of summer
perfect corn on the cob slathered with butter and sprinkled
with salt.
Mash together 4 tablespoons softened butter with 4 table-
spoons crumbled blue cheese. Stir in 2 tablespoons finely
chopped chives and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper.
Spread on hot corn on the cob.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season heavily with
Old Bay Seasoning. Boil husked ears of corn until tender,
about 5 minutes. Serve with butter and an additional sprinkle
of Old Bay.
Cook 1 slice of bacon per ear of corn. In a food processor,
crumble the bacon and process until finely chopped. Add 1
tablespoon of butter per ear, a pinch of salt and black pep-
per, and 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar. Spread on hot corn
on the cob.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon Dijon mus-
tard, 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar, a hefty pinch of salt
and black pepper, 3 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons
chopped fresh thyme. Drizzle over the corn.
Spread 1/2 cup ground almonds on a rimmed baking sheet.
Bake at 350 F until golden and toasted, about 8 minutes.
Allow to cool. Mix in 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh
tarragon and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Coat each hot ear of
corn with butter, then roll in the almond-tarragon mixture.
Husk 6 ears of corn, skewer with long skewers, and coat
lightly with cooking spray. Grill over medium-high until
tender and lightly charred, turning frequently. Spread each
ear of corn with a couple tablespoons of marshmallow
spread (Fluff). Turn the grill flame up (or use a campfire) and
toast the marshmallow on all sides.
Finely crumble 1/2 cup smoked feta cheese. Mix in 2
tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeno peppers. Coat
each hot ear of corn with butter, then roll in the cheese and
pepper mixture.
Whisk together 1 tablespoon water and 2 tablespoons
molasses. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat 4 ears of corn
with the molasses mixture. Sprinkle all over with purchased
or homemade jerk seasoning. Grill over indirect heat on
well-oiled grates until tender.
Mix 2 tablespoons minced Kalamata olives, 2 table-
spoons minced green olives, a pinch of saffron and a pinch
of black pepper into 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese. Spread
over hot corn on the cob.
Spread cooked ears of corn on a platter. Sprinkle with fresh
lime juice, finely grated lime zest, ground cumin, minced ser-
rano chili and salt.

vides funding through Measure A, a
half-cent sales tax in San Mateo
County for transportation projects.
WETAneeds to meet a farebox recov-
ery requirement of 40 percent by June
30, 2015, and the board decided to send
a letter stating its disappointment
with WETAstaff’s treatment of its dis-
cussions and requests to up the market-
ing plan. The current operating budget
is about $2.1 million for contracted
operator costs, $708,600 in fuel costs
and $737,000 in other costs.
“We have the major players who
have access to ferry riders, but with all
the efforts we bring forth to WETAand
they don’t do anything,” Matsumoto
said. “We talked about leafleting,
fliers, suggested giving out passes for
raffle prizes. Every time, it’s like
butting our heads against a wall. ... It
would be a great blow to our communi-
ty if this doesn’t succeed.”
The end of 2013 numbers showed a
17 percent farebox recovery, but this
number is up to a little more than 20
percent currently, said Kevin
Connolly, WETA’s manager of plan-
ning and development. WETA’s total
revenue is $3.57 million, while its
fare revenue is $294,800. About $3
million of this revenue is from
Regional Measure 2 bridge toll funds.
Connolly thinks the 40 percent target
is unrealistic, but does say that rider-
ship is up 51 percent from a little more
than a year ago.
“We’re outpacing the rest of the sys-
tem,” he said. “It’s 35 percent sys-
temwide. I think we will make our rid-
ership expectations. The first year we
were at 9 [percent], the second year
over 20 [percent]. We would need to
keep growing considerably. Forty per-
cent is not a reasonable goal — not
within three years.”
Public money
The ferry, connecting Oakland and
Alameda with the Oyster Point Ferry
Terminal in South City, first opened in
2012. The Metropolitan
Transportation Commission, or MTC,
provided $29 million in Regional
Measure 2 bridge toll funds to finance
WETA’s new ferries. This includes $12
million to help cover the cost of two
vessels for the new ferry service, plus
$17 million for two other ferries that
will provide spare vehicle capacity for
various ferry routes. WETA used $7
million from toll funds that were
approved by voters in 2004 to help
pay for environmental studies, design
work on the Oyster Point terminal in
San Francisco, Clipper fare-payment
equipment and berthing facilities at
Pier 9 in San Francisco. MTC also is
using toll funds to provide most of the
ferry service’s operations subsidy. The
average daily ridership for this year is
327 people.
Extra time
Connolly notes that the rules the
MTC set up allow for a project to take
extra time to reach their goals, espe-
cially if it’s demonstrated extra
growth. WETA has made a request of
MTC to allow the 40 percent farebox
quota to be a systemwide one rather
than just for the East Bay-South City
ferry service.
“We think 40 percent is achievable,
but not within three years,” he said.
“My feeling is MTC realizes the
timetable isn’t realistic.”
Although the MTC hasn’t received a
formal request from WETA, there is an
MTC meeting scheduled in October to
talk about funding from toll money,
said Brenda Kahn, senior public infor-
mation officer for MTC.
“The staff knows it’s a new service
and it’s going to take a while to ramp
up,” Kahn said. “The commission does
have the discretion to make changes of
the (funding) requirements. There’s an
opportunity to discuss what’s going
on with WETAin October. ”
Not enough marketing?
Still, Matsumoto said the marketing
efforts aren’t enough. She noted that of
the surveys WETA had passengers
take, 44 percent of riders heard about
the ferry through work or through word
of mouth. In the last year, Connolly
said WETA has done surveys of the
general population and actual riders,
eight events with employers, events at
the ferry terminal itself and placed
30,000 free inserts into the San
Francisco Chronicle, radio spots, ads
and blog posts in local employer
“Our feeling is we’re marketing the
service very heavily,” he said. “The
impression that comes from the TA
staff is there’s no marketing happen-
Part of this misconception could be
that the market for this service is not
San Mateo County residents, but
Alameda County residents, so the
Transportation Authority staff may
simply not be exposed to the market-
ing effort.
Board quorum
Foust also shared concerns that
WETA’s board is not meeting regularly.
Connolly said this is untrue, but
explained it was tough that only four
of the five WETAboard seats are filled,
making it difficult to get a quorum. He
said the board does meet once a month
regularly, or more often if possible.
The meeting minutes from this year on
the WETAs’ website are from Feb. 6,
March 31, May 8 and June 19.
“I don’t know who he’s meeting with
regularly,” Foust said.
Gov. Jerry Brown did recently fil l
one of the vacant seats on the board,
naming Vice Admiral Jody
Breckenridge as chair of the WETA
board. Brown still needs to appoint
one more member to the board.
“I’m looking forward to actually
interacting with her on ways to
improve the marketing and promotion
of the ferry service,” Foust said.
“There are robust advocates for a
strong ferry system to alleviate the
tremendous impact on Caltrain, but
you have to have a plan or a strategy. ”
An unsuccessful South City ferry
service could affect Redwood City’s
plans since it would need to make sure
there are proven ridership figures
before putting in a public ferry serv-
ice, Foust said. If the South City ferry
doesn’t succeed, there is very little
likelihood this will go to Redwood
City, Matsumoto added.
WETA provides ferry service to the
San Francisco Ferry Building and Pier
41/Fisherman’s Wharf, Harbor Bay
and Vallejo. In addition, there is sea-
sonal service to AT&T Park and Angel
Continued from page 1
San Francisco, said Redwood City
Assistant Public Works Director
Terence Kyaw.
At least two other trees in the same
area are also infected and within several
months will be pulled out of the ground
by the root ball using a heavy-duty
crane. The city can’t just cut the trees
down because the sawdust goes straight
to the other palms and risks infection,
Kyaw said.
The other challenge of tree removal is
navigating the paver stones that sur-
round them and the underground utilities
and irrigation system.
“We can’t really go wild in the mid-
dle of the road and yank it out. We
have to slowly loosen the soil and
work around it,” Kyaw said.
The tree removal costs between
$8,000 and $10,000 apiece and
replacement palms run about $35,000
The removal will happen in the next
several months once the city coordi-
nates with the crane company and
ensures there aren’t other activities
blocking the streets, Kyaw said.
The city is spraying the remaining
trees every few months to keep the fun-
gus from spreading.
In the meantime, city staff
is looking at ways to spruce
up the blank spots where the
tree once stood and where the
others will soon be gone,
according to a letter City
Manager Bob Bell sent to the
Downtown Business Group.
An orange cone and barri-
cade that had been on the
empty site was related to a
recent event and not the tree
issue. It will be removed, Bell
Kyaw said the city is con-
sidering replacing the
removed trees with a different
type of palm but the aesthet-
ics of not being uniform may
not be welcome by the down-
town businesses.

Business Group was not

should be your prime concern. Stay away from joint
ventures or risky investments. Overspending will be
your downfall. Fix what you have instead of buying
