San Francisco to tally
bird-into-window death toll
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco
officials have launched a program to
document the number of birds that die
by crashing into windows in an effort
to reduce such collisions.
The city’s planning department is
seeking volunteers to count the num-
ber of dead birds around their homes
each week during peak migration peri-
ods, the San Francisco Chronicle
reported on Wednesday. The partici-
pants would then log that information
on a city website.
Officials say the goal is to raise
awareness about the dangers windows
pose to birds and get better numbers
about how many birds are dying that
“So far, there hasn’t been enough
scientific data gathered on bird-win-
dow collisions in urban residential
settings,” said Cindy Margulis, execu-
tive director of the Golden Gate
Audubon Society.
At least 100 million birds die each
year in North America by striking win-
dows, according to the American Bird
Conservancy. The group says far more
birds die by colliding with windows or
glass buildings than by hitting wind
turbines or cellphone towers.
A San Francisco ordinance passed
three years ago requires new develop-
ment projects to treat some windows
with netting, frosted glass or similar
bird deterrents. The ordinance mainly
applies to new commercial buildings
or large additions to existing commer-
cial buildings if they stand in bird
flight paths or are near parks or the
shoreline, the Chronicle reported.
But experts say the protections do
not have to be that elaborate, and even
insect screens or strings in front of
large picture windows can help.
“The more I learned about bird
strikes, the more I learned how com-
pletely avoidable they are if only
humans would pay more attention,”
Judith Pynn, who signed up for the
city program, told the Chronicle.
Pynn and other volunteers get a
decal certifying them as a “bird-friend-
ly resident” and can be entered in a raf-
fle, though the prizes have yet to be
San Francisco has set aside
$140,000 — half of it from a U.S.
Fish and Wildlife grant — over a four-
year period ending next June for bird
safety efforts, including subsidies for
residents to make large windows safer.

Anyone wanting to hear the music of one
of their favorite bands for a fraction of the
price, should head out to Redwood City
Friday night to catch The Eagles tribute
band The Boys of Summer.
This is part of Redwood City’s free week-
ly Music on the Square concert series.
Named after the 1984 song by Eagles’
vocalist Don Henley, the band formed back
in 2004. It originally started out as a trib-
ute band to Henley, but soon launched into
a full-blown Eagles tribute band.
“We had the guy who was the Don Henley
voice,” said Jimmy Williamson, who is on
drums and vocals. “Every time we went out
it was all about people yelling ‘The
Eagles’ to us. It’s been 10 years now and we
are known nationally as the Eagles tribute
with the Don Henley guy. ”
“The Don Henley guy” is Darrel Monson,
who is on guitar and handles lead vocals.
Monson and Williamson started playing
together back when the Southern
California natives were in high school in
1970. The bass player, Bill Winkler,
joined them 33 years ago. The rest of the
band is comprised of Craig T. Fall on lead
guitar and vocals and Chris Turbis on key-
board and vocals.
Although the band has been on the road
touring since Jan. 1, the men, who are in
their late 50’s and early 60’s, have other
jobs. One owns a paving business, while
another owns a tile company. Two run
recording studios and another is a chef in
the movie industry.
“We’re all able to get away from our reg-
ular jobs and run them from the road,”
Williamson said. “We all have families and
kids and grandkids. To have support from
home from our families is just a beautiful
Williamson also enjoys the comradery of
the group of guys, being able to recreate
the sound of the Eagles like they do and the
stellar venues they play together. The band
played in Redwood City about two or three
years ago, Williamson said.
“It was just off the hook,” he said.
The Boys of Summer plays songs such as
“Take It Easy” to “Hotel California” and
even the newer country hit “How Long.”
Why should people come out to the
“If they’re Eagles fans, they should come
because if they want to see the Eagles
they’re going to pay $200 ticket,”
Williamson said. “To hear and see recre-
ation they can come for free.”
The band plays at the Music On The
Square at Courthouse Square, 2200
Broadway in Redwood City, 6 p.m. Friday,
Aug. 22. Aug. 29 is the last week of the
summer concert series.

Office of Education will
award diplomas to county veterans
Through Operation Recognition, the San Mateo County
Office of Education will award diplomas to San Mateo County
veterans whose high school education was interrupted due to
wartime circumstances. Current San Mateo County residents
who served in the U.S. Armed Forces in World War II, the
Korean War or the Vietnam War with honorable discharge or
who were interned in a Japanese-American relocation camp
during World War II are eligible to apply.
California Education Code authorizes the retroactive
granting of high school diplomas to eligible veterans and to
Japanese-American citizens whose internment by federal
order in World War II prevented them from graduating from
high school. There is no charge to participate in Operation
Recognition. Family members may submit an application
on behalf of a qualifying individual posthumously.
Applications are available at smcoe.org. Completed
applications and supporting documentation must be received
by Sept. 26. A recognition ceremony will be held 1 p.m.
Nov. 12 at the San Mateo County Office of Education, 101
Twin Dolphin Drive in Redwood City.

Senat e Bi l l 850, authored by Mart y Bl ock,D-San
Diego, would establish a pilot program with 15 commu-
nity colleges offering bachelor’s degrees in select work-
force majors. Having been approved unanimously by the
legislature, Gov. Jerry Brown will now decide if
California joins the 21 other states that allow communi-
ty colleges to grant four-year degrees. Brown has until
Sept. 30 to act on the bill.
Under the bill, bachelor’s degrees could only be
offered as early as January 2015 in areas where public
universities do not offer such a program, cannot accom-
modate student demand, or do not have the interest.
These include program areas such as dental hygiene,
radiologic technology, health information science/info-
matics and automotive technology. The California pilot
will allow the legislature to explore this possibility and
study the results in a thorough report before making a
full commitment that the other states have made.
Local brief
By Samantha Weigel
Multiple state agencies were called
in this week to investigate a sheen of
diesel seen near the fuel and ice dock
that Pillar Point Harbor boaters rely
on and prompted the owner of service
business to shut down for a day.
The service station that’s vital to the
fishing industry closed Thursday and is
expected to reopen Friday, said Harbor
Master Scott Grindy.
The U.S. Coast Guard, California
Fish and Game and other agencies vis-
ited after local boaters reported tainted
water at the service dock near the end
of Johnson Pier in Half Moon Bay,
Grindy said.
Edmundo Larenas, chair of the local
Surfrider Foundation chapter, said he
and wife Mary noticed unclean condi-
tions at the fuel station over the week-
end. Larenas said this was the first time
they’d seen a problem at the fuel dock,
but they’ve long had concerns about
fuel and oil leaking into the harbor
from nearby boats.
“[It wasn’t] an oil spill or anything
like that, just a small amount of diesel
fuel in the water. So we looked around
and took some pictures because what
we saw, in our view, was not proper
maintenance,” Larenas said. “We
noticed rags and buckets of diesel fuel,
it just wasn’t good practice.”
Larenas said they called the
Governor’s Office of Emergency
Services to make a report which initi-
ated an environmental review.
Grindy said he and other officiating
agencies came, checked the location
multiple times, but didn’t see any
“What I understand, because I own a
boat, that when you go to a fuel dock
or other spots, sometimes your engine
might be off and … can get a sheen
when one drop pops out of the gas
line, kind of like a car,” Grindy said.
“There were no drips causing anything
on the water. It’s basically that there
was a sheen there at the time [the
Larenas were] there, but there was
nothing when the Coast Guard was
KN Properties owner Keet Nerhan,
who runs the business and leases the
dock, announced at Wednesday’s
Harbor District meeting that he would
close until it was cleared by the district
or an environmental agency, accord-
ing to Grindy and Harbor District
Commissioner Sabrina Brennan.
Grindy and Brennan said they were
concerned for the fisherman who began
to complain about not being able to
conduct business without fuel and ice.
“For a fisherman who needs to go out
fishing, or even a charter boat opera-
tor, or really any boater, they need fuel
and they can’t operate without it,”
Brennan said. “Generally speaking,
fishermen need ice, you can’t run a
commercial fishing harbor without ice
and without fuel.”
Grindy agreed there was a lot at stake
if the matter wasn’t resolved quickly.
“Right now, there’s salmon and
squid coming in. On certain days, we’ll
have up to 30 truck of squid being
loaded so if those boats show up and
there’s not ice… they could lose all
that product,” Grindy said.
Grindy said he immediately requested
the Coast Guard return and conduct
another inspection Thursday to
appease the property owner and the
public. Again, it determined there was
no problem, Grindy said.
“They were reinspecting. They had-
n’t found anything before but they
were happy to come out and help
because I didn’t want to see all these
boaters and fishermen without fuel,”
Grindy said.
The Harbor District has a clean mari-
nas certificate, continues to strive to
keep the harbor clean and the fuel dock
isn’t a general problem, Grindy said.
In typical Harbor District form,
accusations about political incentives
and mistrust floated around since the
issue was first brought up.
“I don’t see anything political. I just
see that someone came in and made a
complaint. I don’t see any problem
with the public coming in and saying
there was a problem,” Grindy said.
“But I think the property owner was
there at the meeting and didn’t expect
Brennan and Larenas said the clean-
liness of the harbor and frequency of
boats leaking oil or fuel into the water
has been an ongoing issue. But despite
what political issues it brought up, the
result was positive, Larenas said.
“Regardless of what all the hyper-
bole was, it’s much cleaner now than
when we reported it,” Larenas said. “So
whatever happened for whatever rea-
son, it’s the outcome that we wanted.
For that fuel dock to clean up it’s act.”

“I don’t see anything political. I just see that someone
came in and made a complaint. I don’t see any problem

Martin’s Beach bill heads to governor
Legislation aimed at reopening Martin’s
Beach in Half Moon Bay to the public is
headed to the governor’s
desk after clearing a major
hurdle Thursday by pass-
ing on the Senate floor for
a second time.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-
San Mateo, authored
Senate Bill 968, which
received bipartisan
approval and passed 23-9
in the Senate Thursday.
The bill would require
billionaire Vinod Khosla, who bought the
coveted property in 2008 for $32.5 million,
to negotiate with the State Lands
Commission to reinstate public access.
If a compromise cannot be met by Jan. 1,
2016, the SLC could use its authority to cre-
ate a right-of-way access road through con-
Once it reaches his desk, Gov. Jerry Brown
has 12 days to sign it into law.
The bill, which easily passed the Senate,
traveled a rocky road in the Assembly and was
amended in both the Natural Resources and
Appropriations committees. It narrowly
passed the Assembly floor Wednesday on a
second vote after Hill said he worked to earn
an additional 10 votes. It passed 41-24 — the
exact amount of votes needed to progress.
As the bill was amended in the Assembly, it
necessitated another vote on the Senate floor.
Concurrent efforts to reopen the beach
include two civil lawsuits and the California
Coastal Commission has gotten involved by
creating a survey it said it may need to use in
SB 968 will not interfere with those cases,
according to Hill’s office.

San Mateo police arrested Chamale-Boch
Oct. 20, 2013, after a woman identified him
as the man she said grabbed her in the dark-
ened station hallway approaching the stair-
well about 7 p.m. that Sunday. The suspect
covered her mouth as she screamed, and
pulled her 6 feet down the stairs as she
punched and scratched at his face. After she
fought herself free, she called police who
found him nearby later that night with
scratches on his face.
His defense attorney questioned Chamale-
Boch’s ability to stand trial but in June a
majority of court-appointed doctors found
him competent.
He remains in custody on $2 million bail.

allegedly faked a lower back injury to claim
approximately $22,000 in disability bene-
fits was sentenced Thursday to electronic
home monitoring, reportedly to accommo-
date recuperation from back surgery.
Sunita Sagar, 46, pleaded no contest in
February to felony workers compensation
fraud to avoid trial for four more felonies on
the condition she spend up to a year in jail
and make full restitution including the cost
of the investigation. On Thursday, Judge
Craig Parsons handed down 120 days jail
which can be served on electronic home
monitoring and ordered her to repay
The prosecution objected to the home
monitoring but the defense submitted a brief
to the court saying she remains in physical
stress due to a back surgery in July, District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
“It’s not the same punishment as jail. You
can go to the TV. You can go to the refriger-
ator,” Wagstaffe said.
Sagar has no credit
earned against her jail
term because she has
been out of custody on
$50,000 bail.
According to prosecu-
tors, the Fremont woman
was a medical records file
clerk when she claimed
the back injury while
working and said she
could not return because of ongoing pain.
She was placed on temporary disability but
later convinced her medical caregivers she
was completely sedentary and could not per-
form even routine daily activities, accord-
ing to the district Attorney’s Office.
All together, she collected approximately
$22,000 in benefit s.
After requesting in-home care, insurance
fraud investigators reportedly caught Sagar
in a “very active lifestyle” working at the
multiple businesses she owned and moving
without signs of pain.
Doctors viewing the footage said it
showed she misrepresented her disability
and was able to work.

SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers
are sending legislation to Gov. Jerry Brown
to force greater disclosure in political cam-
paigns, passing two bills Thursday aimed at
giving voters more information about who
is paying for campaigns and appearing in
The state Assembly approved AB400,
which requires initiative, referendum or
recall petitions being circulated for signa-
tures to clearly state the top five donors who
contributed more than $10,000 apiece to
fund the campaign. The legislation by
Assemblyman Paul Fong, D-Cupertino,
passed 47-22.
Democrats said the legislation ensures
that voters at least know who is supplying
millions of dollars to fund an initiative cam-
paign. Republicans opposed the bill.
Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks,
said campaign finance disclosure laws
already require campaigns to report dona-
tions, and those can be easily found online.
The Assembly also approved AB510 by
Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San
Francisco, which requires campaign com-
mercials to disclose when paid actors appear
in ads as doctors, teachers or other profes-
Ammiano’s term in the Assembly ends
this year. He joked that when the legislative
session ends next week, “I won’t be an
Assembly member, but I will play one on
TV.” The bill passed 54-17.

State military removed
from sexual assault cases
SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown has
signed a bill enshrining into law the state
military policy to refer sexual assault cases
to civilian prosecutors.
The symbolic move comes as federal law-
makers consider whether U.S. military com-
manders should continue investigating
assault cases within their ranks. Brown's
office announced signing SB1422 on
Democratic Sen. Alex Padilla of Los
Angeles says the law shows California lead-
ing by example on an issue of national con-
cern. Advocates for sexual assault victims
have been pushing for the investigation and
prosecution of their abusers to be removed
from the military chain of command.
SB1422 applies to the California
Military Department, which oversees
24,000 people serving in the National
Guard, Naval Militia and Military Reserve.
The bill also requires the department to
report sexual assault statistics every year.
California will monitor
money in outside accounts
SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown has
signed legislation to keep track of taxpayer
dollars managed outside the state treasury.
Brown's office announced Thursday he had
signed AB1583 after CalFIRE was discov-
ered handling money in an outside account
without permission.
The bill was carried by Republican
Assemblyman Travis Allen of Huntington
Beach to implement recommendations of a
2013 state audit.
That review found $9 billion in state funds
were kept outside the treasury system. It said
that while the state Department of Finance
can allow the practice, the money poses a
greater risk for mismanagement.
It singled out CalFIRE for using its out-
side account to skirt budget and equipment-
buying rules.
AB1583 requires the state controller to
prepare an annual report listing all outside
bank accounts and their balances.
Lawmakers approve bills
expanding revenge porn ban
SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers
approved two bills that would expand a state
ban on so-called revenge porn.
The Assembly on Thursday unanimously
approved SB1255 by Republican Sen.
Anthony Cannella of Ceres. It clarifies that
the ban on sharing intimate photos by for-
mer lovers without consent includes "self-
ies," or pictures taken by the victim.
It passed 75-0 and goes to the Senate.
The Senate also passed AB2643 by
Democratic Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski
of Fremont. It allows victims of such crimes
to sue for damages using a pseudonym.
Around the state
Astate appeals court in San Francisco has
upheld the conviction and three consecu-
tive sentences of life in prison without
parole for a former
MS-13 gangmember in the killing of a
father and two sons in the city in 2008.
Edwin Ramos, 27, was convicted in San
Francisco Superior Court in 2012 of first-
degree murder in the fatal shootings of
Anthony Bologna, 48, and his sons
Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16, as they sat in
their car on the afternoon of June 22, 2008.
Anthony Bologna was the night manager
of Draeger’s grocery store in San Mateo.
Prosecutors alleged that Ramos mistook
the victims for members of a rival Norteno
gang and that the murders were in revenge
for the shooting and wounding of a fellow
MS-13 gangmember in the city earlier that
Ramos was also convicted of the attempt-
ed murder of a third son, Andrew Bologna,
18, who ducked down and survived the
attack and later testified against Ramos at
his trial.
The victims were returning from a family
picnic at the time and were shot from a
Chrysler that stopped about 1 foot away
from the family’s
car at an intersection near their home in
the city’s Excelsior District.
Andrew Bologna testified at the trial that
Ramos, the driver of the Chrysler, fired the
shots. Ramos, testifying in his own
defense, admitted
he was the driver, but claimed that an
associate, Wilfredo Reyes, who was a pas-
senger, was the shooter.
Reyes, 32, was arrested in North Carolina
two months after Ramos was convicted and
is awaiting trial on similar charges.
Ramos, who had come to San Francisco
from El Salvador as a teenager and remained
on an expired visa, admitted on the stand
that he had been an MS-13 member, but said
he left the gang in 2006 and moved to El
Sobrante to live with his wife’s family.
The trial jury deadlocked on an additional
count that alleged that Ramos personally
fired the gun, but under the first-degree mur-
der verdict, Ramos was found responsible
for the killings regardless of who was the
Athree-judge panel of the Court of Appeal
unanimously upheld the conviction in a rul-
ing issued Wednesday.
The court rejected Ramos’ appeal argu-
ments that the trial judge allowed prejudi-
cial evidence about his gang membership
and that statements he
made to police two days after the shoot-
ing should not have been allowed as evi-
The court said the daylong police inter-
view was not an involuntary confession
because Ramos knowingly gave up his
right to have a lawyer present and was not
coerced or threatened during the taped ses-
sion. In the statements, Ramos admitted
being the driver but denied being the shoot-
Ramos’ lawyer in the appeal, Kathy
Moreno, said she had not yet read the ruling
and could not comment, but said that Ramos
will “of course” seek further review from the
California Supreme Court.
Appeals court upholds conviction in
murder of former Draeger’s manager
By Paul Elias
SAN FRANCISCO — California’s attor-
ney general said Thursday she will appeal a
federal court ruling that called the state’s
death penalty unconstitutional.
The announcement by Attorney General
Kamala Harris came after U.S. District Judge
Cormac Carney in Los Angeles ruled last
month that the state’s death penalty takes
too long to carry out, and that the unpre-
dictable delays are arbitrary and unfair.
Death penalty foes have long argued that
California’s delays amounted to unconstitu-
tional cruel and unusual punishment, but
until Carney’s ruling, the argument failed to
persuade a judge.
Harris, however, said the amount of time
it takes to execute inmates in California
ensures they receive due process.
“I am appealing the
court’s decision because
it is not supported by the
law, and it undermines
important protections
that our courts provide to
defendants,” Harris said
in a prepared statement.
“This flawed ruling
requires appellate
review. ”
Death penalty foes had called on Harris to
let Carney’s ruling stand rather than risk a
reversal in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of
“We hope the 9th Circuit will recognize
that California’s death penalty system is as
broken and unconstitutional as Judge
Cormac found,” Matt Cherry, executive
director of Death Penalty Focus, which
seeks to abolish capital punishment, said in
response to Harris’s move.

WASHINGTON — It started with a bottle of
orange juice 30 years ago.
The national legal standards that govern
when police officers are justified in using
force against people trace their lineage to a
1984 case from Charlotte, North Carolina. In
that case, a diabetic man’s erratic behavior
during a trip to a convenience store for juice
to bring up his low blood sugar led to a con-
frontation with officers that left him with
injuries from head to foot.
Dethorne Graham’s subsequent lawsuit
against police for his injuries led to a 1989
Supreme Court decision that has become the
prism for evaluating how police use force. As
soon as Ferguson, Missouri, police officer
Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown on Aug.
9, the Graham v. Connor case became the
foundational test for whether Wilson’s
response was appropriate or criminal.
To most civilians, an 18-year-old unarmed
man may not appear to pose a deadly threat.
But a police officer’s perspective is different.
And that is how an officer should be judged
after the fact, Chief Justice William Rehnquist
wrote in the 1989 opinion.
“The ‘reasonableness’ of a particular use of
force must be judged from the perspective of a
reasonable officer on the scene, rather than
with the 20/20 vision of hindsight,”
Rehnquist wrote.
The sequence of events that led to the death
of Brown, a black man shot by a white officer,
remains unclear. An autopsy paid for by
Brown’s family concluded that he was shot
six times, twice in the head. The shooting has
prompted multiple investigations and trig-
gered days of rioting reflecting long-simmer-
ing racial tensions in a town of mostly black
residents and a majority white police force.
Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday
the incident had opened a national conversa-
tion about “the appropriate use of force and
the need to ensure fair and equal treatment for
everyone who comes into contact with the

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Israel stepped
up its campaign against Gaza’s ruling
Hamas on Thursday, killing three of the
group’s senior military commanders in an
airstrike that pulverized a four-story home,
the second such attack targeting top leaders
in two days.
The pinpoint pre-dawn attack on Hamas’
inner sanctum was launched minutes after
the men emerged from tunnel hideouts, a
security official said — displaying the
long reach of Israel’s intelligence servic-
The killing of the commanders, who
played a key role in expanding Hamas’ mil-
itary capabilities in recent years, was
bound to lower morale in the secretive
group, but might not necessarily diminish
its ability to fire rockets at Israel.
Thursday’s strike in the southern Gaza
town of Rafah, coupled with a Cabinet deci-
sion to call up 10,000 more reserve sol-
diers, signaled an escalation in the Israel-
Hamas war after Egyptian cease-fire efforts
collapsed this week.
Since July 8, fighting has claimed more
than 2,000 Palestinian lives, most of them
civilians, according to Palestinian offi-
cials and the U.N., and entire neighbor-
hoods of Gaza have been destroyed. Sixty-
four Israeli soldiers, two Israeli civilians
and a guest worker also have been killed.

Letters to the editor
The Fresno Bee
t’s difficult to know if comedian
Robin Williams’ death last week had
any effect on Assemblyman Marc
Levine’s push to require health-care
providers to have specific training on sui-
cide prevention.
The bill received surprising bipartisan
support in the Senate last week, where it
passed with only one “no” vote.
We’d like to think that Williams’ suicide
had something to do with bringing togeth-
er both sides on this legislation — it would
mean at least one good thing came out of
such a sad occasion.
AB 2198 is a modest proposal: It requires
psychologists, marriage and family coun-
selors and social workers in California to
take a one-time, six-hour course on suicide
prevention as part of their 36-hour contin-
uing education requirement to renew their
professional licenses.
It also requires that 15 hours of the
roughly 3,200 hours of course work
required for these professionals to obtain a
degree are dedicated to suicide prevention
training. These hours are based on recom-
mendations from the California
Department of Health, according to Levine.
Seems reasonable to us.
Not so to the associations of social
workers, counselors and psychologists.
They object to the bill on behalf of their
members on two main grounds.
First, that suicide prevention is intrinsic
to their core training in treating mental ill-
ness. While there’s not a specific unit of
study on suicide prevention required, it’s
woven into their overall university course
work and part of the testing for licensure.
Additional training might be redundant.
Also, it could take away from specialty-
specific continuing education that might
benefit a mental health professional more
Second and perhaps more compelling:
They don’t think the Legislature should be
dictating their professional standards.
Generally, we would agree. The
Legislature often meddles in things in
which it has a political agenda but little
This is not one of those cases, however.
Levine, a San Rafael Democrat, was
moved to carry this bill because of the dis-
turbing uptick in suicide in the United
According to the American Foundation
for Suicide Prevention, which is support-
ing the bill, suicide increased by 31 per-
cent between 2000 and 2010. Nearly 4,000
Californians take their lives each year, and
more than 48,000 attempt to do so.
Suicide has a tremendous societal cost,
and stopping it ought to be a priority of
every health-care provider, even if it might
be a tad redundant for some.
The bill is supported by a host of organi-
zations concerned with suicide prevention
— the California Mental Health Directors
Association and the National Alliance on
Mental Illness are just two examples —
whose only motivation is to save lives.
There’s a good chance Gov. Jerry Brown
will veto the bill based on his treatment of
a similar one by former Assemblywoman
Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, in 2011. In
that bill, Kehoe suggested that licensed
health-care professionals such as doctors
and nurses should take a continuing educa-
tion course to learn how to care for lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgendered people.
“I believe that respective licensing
boards are better suited than the Legislature
or the governor to decide these matters,”
Brown wrote in his veto message.
In most cases, he would be correct. But
sometimes, especially when it might pre-
vent death, boards need a push in the right
This is one of those times.
A true act of kindness
My children and I were going to meet at a
restaurant located between my daughter’s
and my home. My daughter’s husband and
she had eaten out the night before, so he
wanted to stay home. My son’s wife was
with her parents across the Bay.
My son let me out of the car, prior to his
parking, so I did not have to walk very far.
There is not much traffic on that street, but
there were two lanes of traffic each way with
a large space in between them. Pedestrians
push a button to stop traffic which allows
the walker in crossing each set of traffic
As the white hand appeared, I started to
step forward into the first set of lanes. At
that moment, a man left his car in the lane
of traffic and ran to me. He assisted me in
crossing both sets of lanes and escorted me
to the entrance. Then, he returned to his car
which was sitting in the lane of traffic.
This was a true act of kindness that I felt
should be noted in these troubled times.

Lottery mystery
I wonder why people play the Mega
Millions and Powerball lotteries, when the
California Super Lotto Plus has much higher
odds of winning, albeit also very, very low?
It makes no sense, unless, of course, you
need the Tuesday and Friday lottery fix, in
addition to the mid and end of week thrills.
All such lotteries are per definition random.
That means that no system can be used to
increase the chances of winning, except
buying more tickets, and playing the
California Super Lotto Plus instead of Mega
Millions and Powerball. No ticket outlet has
greater odds than any other, and all number
combinations have exactly the same chance
of hitting the jack pot: almost negligible. If
you let the system make quick picks, the
timing of the pick is all that matters, and
that’s the same for every single ticket out-
let, all fed simultaneously by the same ran-
dom number generator. No system, no strat-
egy, no statistical analysis or algorithm can
increase your odds of winning. Only going
for the lottery with the greatest odds, like
California Super, will do it. And, remember,
those little balls with numbers on them
have no memory. Don’t be fooled by the
occasional greater jackpots for Mega
Millions and Powerball. That’s mainly a
result of low odds of winning, and thus
long periods between the hits. And, of
course, greedy optimists buying more tick-
ets the bigger the jackpot is, ignoring the
persistently low odds.

Journalists should use their
connections for their stories
I agree with Renee Kaseff’s letter, “The
importance of print journalism” published
in the Aug. 13, 2014, edition of the Daily
Journal, praising our local papers about the
great job they do. But they can only print
what comes off the wire, like AP and UP, but
what happens when the “wire” doesn’t sub-
mit the news events when they happen? Two
examples, when Obama was campaigning
and came up with the gem, “I’ve been to 57
states and I have one more to go.” I think
we Americans had that jewel in fourth-grade.
That stuff isn’t taught in Indonesia. Or when
“Miss Lube Rack, 1955,” Nancy Pelosi said,
“We have to pass ObamaCare to find out
what’s in it.” That has to be the dumbest
statement ever uttered. And the Congress’s
job is to dissect the bills and make them
work, and then pass it. So let’s find out why
these facts do not reach the public who
votes. ABC News executive producer Ian
Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National

Memories of
don’t recall exactly when the beach
house was rented and for how long
before my arrival. It was just before
my parents moved to the North Carolina
city of Wilmington and its beach town,
Wrightsville Beach, was a well-known
vacation spot — in the summer.
This house was rented in the winter. And
it was the winter of I think 1990, the winter
when it hap-
pened to snow
in Wrightsville
Beach for the
first time any-
one could
remember. It
was to be the
location of our
Christmas, and
many of us had
to make long
treks to get
there. Renting
a beach house
for Christmas
was not without precedent for us. We had
done so in the past in Capitola.
But this house was different. Directly on
the beach, or as near as you could get to it.
On stilts because of the potential of hurri-
canes and high tide and roomy enough for
extended family. Nice.
And then the trouble started. The snow at
first was a novelty. We sat by the fire after
building snowmen on the beach. The arcade
at the pier seemingly belonged to us. Its
pinball, corn dogs and air hockey were sim-
ply there for the taking.
But then there was the matter of picking
up my sister’s new boyfriend from the
Raleigh-Durham International Airport. One-
hundred-and-fifty miles away. In a snow
storm. So off my dad went, with my sister,
my grandfather and my father’s friend Bud,
who brought a 12-pack of Natural Light for
the trip. I was to remain with my mother,
which was fine by me. They were back the
next day with a tale to tell. The car, I
believe a Mercury Cougar, had gotten stuck
several times in the snow and blankets were
used for traction until those blankets were
lost or otherwise discarded. The average
speed on Interstate 40 was about 10 mph.
And Bud finished his 12-pack without once
asking to use a restroom. I’m still not sure
why he went along. Maybe it was his car.
The car, which had to be left in the middle
of the street, was about a block away from
our temporary home.
My mom was worried all night but didn’t
let on. That’s her way.
But they were back safe and sound and my
sister’s boyfriend, now husband of about 20
years, didn’t have his luggage for the week-
long stay. And he never got it. And we were
stuck there, so it was borrowed underwear
and a toothbrush for him. Welcome to the
Then the pipes started freezing. My dad,
whose idea of roughing it was a Holiday Inn
without room service, decided he would be
the one to fix them. Down to the ground
level he went to see what could be done.
There, he found a burst pipe pouring water
everywhere. With duct tape and rags, he
attempted to make the fix. He was sopping
wet, frozen but determined. The pipe was a
gray abscess but minimized the leak.
Until others started breaking from the top
of the stilts so we had a quickly frozen
waterfall for two levels. The city made good
on its threat to turn off the water. So there
we were. No water. Aquickly depleting store
of canned goods. And each other.
The snow stopped, then melted, Bud got
his car back and life eventually returned to
Wrightsville Beach.
It was a great Christmas.

NEWYORK — U.S. stocks were on
pace for a fourth straight day of gains
Thursday, putting the Standard &
Poor’s 500 index on track to beat its
record high close set last month.
Investors were encouraged by a report
that the number of people seeking
unemployment benefits remains at a
multi-year low. Hewlett-Packard rose
after delivering better results, while
Sears plunged after reporting that its
loss doubled from a year ago. Trading
remains light with many investors out
on vacation.
The Dow Jones industrial average
was up 81 points, or 0.5 percent, to
17,060 as of 2:25 p.m. Eastern. The
Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose
seven points, or 0.4 percent, to
1,993. That’s six points above the
record high of 1,987.98 it closed at on
July 24. The Nasdaq composite was up
four points, or 0.1 percent, at 4,531.
Claims for unemployment benefit s,
a proxy for the number of people who
lost their jobs and are looking for
work, fell by 14,000 last week to
298,000. The less-volatile four-week
average was 300,750, below the aver-
age before the Great Recession.
Bank of America rose 48 cents, or 3
percent, to $16.01 after the company
announced it had reached a $16.65 bil-
lion settlement with the Justice
Department over its sale of mortgage-
backed securities in the months lead-
ing up to the financial crisis. The set-

Investors were looking over minutes
from the U.S. Federal Reserve’s last
meeting. The minutes, released late
Wednesday, showed that a majority of
Fed policymakers believe the U.S.
economy is improving enough for the
central bank to start raising interest
rates sooner than previously thought.
The debate on when the Fed should
begin increasing rates, which have
been near zero since 2008, has inten-
sified in recent months as the Fed

Fed Chair Janet Yellen will give a
speech at an annual conference of cen-

Investors will be watching closely for
clues into her thinking on the timing
of interest rate hikes.
“There’s still a lot of debate on the
timing on raising interest rates, but
generally I think most people are pre-
pared for it,” said Ryan Larson, head of
equity trading with RBC Global Asset
Technology giant Hewlett-Packard
rose $2.16, or 6.2 percent, to $37.29
after the company reported better-
than-expected results and its first sales
increase in nearly three years. HP has

WASHINGTON — The government has
reached a $16.65 billion settlement with
Bank of America over its role in the sale of
mortgage-backed securities in the run-up to
the financial crisis, the Justice Department
announced Thursday.
The deal calls for the bank, the second-
largest in the U.S., to pay a $5 billion cash
penalty, another $4.6 billion in remedia-
tion payments and provide about $7 billion
in relief to struggling homeowners.
The settlement is by far the largest deal
the Justice Department has reached with a
bank over the 2008 mortgage meltdown. In
the last year, JPMorgan Chase & Co. agreed
to a $13 billion settlement while Citigroup
reached a separate $7 billion deal.
At a news conference, Attorney General
Eric Holder said the bank and its
Countrywide and Merrill Lynch subsidiaries
had “engaged in pervasive schemes to
defraud financial institutions and other
investors” by misrepresenting the sound-
ness of mortgage-backed securities. The
penalties, Holder said, go “far beyond the
cost of doing business.”
According to one example laid out by the
government, Bank of America knew that a
significant number of loans packaged into
$850 million in securities were experienc-
ing a marked increase in underwriting
defects. Notwithstanding the red flags, the
bank sold these residential mortgage-
backed securities to federally backed finan-
cial institutions, the government said in a

The company, which operates Sears and

to right the ship. That includes closing
more stores beyond the 130 that it had
announced earlier this year.

Sears, controlled by billionaire hedge
fund investor Edward Lampert, lost $573
million, or $5.39 per share, for the period
ended Aug. 2. That’s more than double the
loss of $194 million, or $1.83 per share, a
year earlier. It marked its ninth straight
quarterly loss.
Revenue declined 10 percent to $8 billion
from $8.87 billion. One bright spot was

Ticketfly buying
WillCall for on-premise data
LOS ANGELES — Ticketfly Inc., a San
Francisco-based technology company
among several posing a challenge to
Ticketmaster, is acquiring WillCall Inc., a
crosstown rival that turns your smartphone
into a mobile wallet at live events.
The move is meant to expand WillCall’s
data-collection and payment service to more
ticket buyers. Ticketfly has grossed some
$400 million in ticket sales and sold 16
million tickets so far this year.

WASHINGTON — A fourth straight
monthly increase in sales of existing
homes provided the latest evidence
Thursday that the U.S. housing market is
rebounding from a weak start to the year.
Housing has been a drag on an otherwise
strengthening economy, in part because a
harsh winter delayed many sales. But
Americans are stepping up purchases as
more homes have been put up for sale. Low
mortgage rates and moderating price gains
have made homes more affordable.
“The momentum is in the right direc-
tion,” said Andrew Labelle, an economist at
TD Bank, who noted that the past four
months have marked the fastest four-month
sales gain since 2011. “Sustained jobs
gains, as well as the fall in mortgage rates
since the beginning of the year appear to
have unleashed at least some pent-up

reviewed Dollar General Corp.’s offer and

Kevin Frandsen’s whirlwind spring train-
ing couldn’t have turned out any better.
The former Giants infielder entered into
spring competing for a roster spot with the
Philadelphia Phillies, but was cut five days
prior to opening day. Frandsen opted for
free agency after declining a minor league
assignment, and a day later, on March 26,
he signed with the Washington Nationals.
The 32-year-old journeyman quickly fig-
ured into the big-league plans of the
National League East contender.
“It’s a very talented team, first and fore-
most,” Frandsen said of his current squad.
“That’s what people see. But what I don’t
think people see too often is it’s one of the
most fun teams you can be around. They
always say that winning breeds fun. But I
think the fun that we’ve had has created our
winning atmosphere.”
Frandsen is relishing the winning atmos-
phere. Since breaking into the big leagues
with San Francisco in 2006, he has played
for just one team to finish above the .500
mark — the 2009 Giants, who won 88
games while taking third place in the NL
West. Entering play Friday with the NL’s
best record, the Nationals are on the verge
of bettering that in a big way.
And as the Giants begin a three-game
series Friday in Washington, Frandsen — a
San Jose native who grew up a Giants fan —
anticipates the opportunity to match up
with his former club.
“It’s always fun playing the Giants for
me,” Frandsen said. “Let alone is it your
childhood team growing up, but they were
the first team to ever give me a chance to
play in the big leagues. And you’re forever
grateful. You wish it would have ended up the
right way, but there is not a day that goes by
for me that I’m not grateful for my opportu-
nity with them.”
The “right way” would have been

Charles Woodson, who began his career with the Raiders before signing with the Green Bay
Packers as a free agent in 2006, returned to the Raiders last season. He will make his return to
Green Bay’s Lambeau Field for the first time since leaving the Packers.
By Genaro C. Armas
GREEN BAY, Wis. — One of the NFL’s top
quarterbacks learned from one of the best
defensive backs in the game.
With Charles Woodson leading the defense
and Aaron Rodgers running the offense, the
Green Bay Packers had a remarkable run of suc-
cess that included a Super Bowl win and a 15-1
record the following season.
The good friends will have a warm reunion
Friday night when the safety returns to
Lambeau Field for the first time since signing
with Oakland last year. The Raiders visit Green
Bay for a preseason game.
“Charles is one of my all-time favorite
teammates. Probably the most talented guy,
most dominant player that I’ve played with
during his stretch, from his time he got here
until he left,” Rodgers said. “I learned so much
from him.”
Whatever he picked up, he’s putting to good
use. Rodgers practiced against Woodson
extensively when he was running the scout
team, and went up against Woodson every day
in practice as the starter. He listened when
Woodson would speak up, then watched the
safety expand his leadership role.
Come Friday, Rodgers will try to pick apart
a Raiders defense that has struggled early. It’s
expected to be the 2011 NFL MVP’s most
extensive action before the season opener in
two weeks against Seattle.
Combined during the first two weeks against
the Raiders, Matt Cassel and Matthew Stafford
were 14 for 16 for 150 yards and two touch-
downs against the first-team Oakland defense,
and they led three touchdown drives in four
“It’s the ultimate test. ‘A-Rod’ is the best
quarterback in the league, in my eyes. Their
offense has been explosive,” Woodson said.
“I’ve seen it firsthand for many years.”
The Packers’ first-team offense was in mid-
season form last week against St. Louis, albeit
against an admittedly vanilla defense. Rodgers
was 11 for 13 for 128 yards in two first-half
drives, both leading to scores.
Woodson, who still has a lot of friends on
the Packers, is looking forward to returning to

SANTACLARA — The San Francisco 49ers
were working to re-sod the field at new Levi’s
Stadium on Thursday, a day after a public work-
out was cut short and moved to the regular prac-
tice fields because players were slipping.
San Francisco hosts the San Diego Chargers
at the $1.2 billion stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m.
PDT, and the team has said it expects to have the
field ready in time. KTVU’s news chopper
showed images of the sod replacement in some
areas of the turf Thursday.
“The 49ers organization would like to apolo-
gize to any fans who were inconvenienced by
today’s practice ending early,” the team said
Wednesday. “We have determined the appropri-
ate measures necessary to have the field ready for
Sunday and look forward to hosting the San
Diego Chargers.”
Coach Jim Harbaugh moved his team out of
the stadium Wednesday about an hour into the
“It’s a beautiful field for a first-year field,” vet-
eran placekicker Phil Dawson said this week.
“Those guys are working their brains out to get
that thing ready.”
Dawson missed wide right on first-half field
goal attempts from 55 and 44 yards in Sunday’s
34-0 loss to the Denver Broncos. He said there
are always adjustments with new grass. The field
looked dry in places and chunks of sod could be
seen missing in places where it apparently did-
n’t root properly.
“We’re all kind of in foreign territory here and
learning as we go,” Dawson said. “There were a
lot of new experiences, not just wind but the
footing on the field. It’s the first time the big
boys have been out there and trudging around
and seeing how the field held up. There’s a whole
lot going on all at once. ... If your technique
requires a six-inch step and your six-inch step
goes in a divot or something like that, it can
affect things. That’s not unique to fields we play
on. I have pretty good experience playing on
fields that are less than ideal, so I’ll just have to
draw on those experiences.”

BERKELEY— Michael Williams makes it
clear: The word “caretaker” is not the
description for how he sees his role as inter-
im athletic director at California.
In a little more than a month since offi-
cially replacing Sandy Barbour, Williams
has hired coaches, negotiated contracts and
put in countless hours already, building rela-
tionship with athletes and coaches.
“I’m here to do the job. I’m doing the
job,” he said during a
recent interview in his
office. “I am here to do
the job for as long as I’m
in the seat.”
Williams has commit-
ted to staying in this role
through next June, when
Cal hopes to have a per-
manent successor to
Barbour in place. His
most high-profile role in
that time just might be evaluating second-
year football coach Sonny Dykes.
Dykes won just one game is his debut sea-
son at Cal, rankling alums who have waited
more than a half-century for a return trip to
the Rose Bowl, and contributing to
Barbour’s departure in June.
Williams has traveled with Dykes as the
two try to build a rapport, and he attends
football practice almost every other day. A
longtime Cal fan and season-ticket holder,
Williams described his new role as a critic
who wants to make sure the program is head-
ed in the right direction after winning just
four games the past two seasons.
Williams said he believes Dykes has the
program on the upswing, citing a stronger
commitment to academics after years of

CHICAGO — After two days, the first
upheld protest in nearly 30 years and anoth-
er rain storm, the Chicago Cubs finally com-
pleted a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco
Giants in a suspended game on Thursday
Anthony Rizzo's two-run homer Tuesday
held up as the team's played the final 4 1/2
innings of a game the Cubs thought they had
won 2-0 before Major League Baseball ruled
was suspended.
A short rainstorm caused a delay of more
than 4 1/2 hours after the grounds crew
couldn't put the tarp down quickly. The
umpires said the field was unplayable and
called it at 1:16 a.m. But the Giants protest-
ed, and MLB ruled that the tarp had not been
properly put away after its previous use, the
first upheld protest since 1986. The game
was suspended.
Thursday's start was delayed 1 hour, 57
minutes by another downpour before
Chicago could bat in the bottom of the fifth.
Joe Panik had an RBI single in the sixth to
pull the Giants to 2-1.
Giants win protest,
lose game to Cubs
CHICAGO — Buster Posey went 4 for 4
with his 14th homer, leading Madison
Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants to a
5-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on
Thursday night.
Pablo Sandoval added three hits and two
RBIs as the Giants rebounded from a 2-1 loss
earlier in the day in the resumption of their
suspended game in the series opener.
Bumgarner (14-9) struck out 12 in seven
innings. He allowed three runs and seven
Chicago then got off to a fast start in the
nightcap. Justin Ruggiano and Welington
Castillo hit back-to-back homers in the first
to give the Cubs a 3-1 lead.
But San Francisco grabbed the lead for
good on Posey's leadoff drive to left in the
fifth against Travis Wood (7-11). Michael
Morse added a sacrifice fly in the seventh that
made it 5-3.Wood (7-11) gave up four runs
and eight hits in six innings. The left-hander
is 0-6 with a 5.45 ERAin his last 12 starts.
Touted Cubs prospect Javier Baez struck
out four times, including with two out and
two runners in scoring position in the sev-
enth inning. Through 71 big league at-bats,
Baez has struck out 31 times.
Santiago Casilla worked a scoreless ninth
for his 11th save in 14 opportunities.

Ask a Proesional
year in camp competing with Emmanuel
Burriss for a utility infield job. Much like
this year, however, Frandsen was let go just
days prior to opening day when the Giants
traded him to the Red Sox for cash.
The Giants, of course, went on to win the
World Series. For Frandsen, the World
Championship was a bittersweet experi-
ence. On the one hand, he wasn’t a part of it.
However, he did watch many of the players
with whom he came up through the minor
leagues — including some of his best
friends — enjoy the historic celebration as
the first ever World Championship baseball
team in San Francisco.
“It was bittersweet, because I knew I
spilled a lot of my passion for that organi-
zation knowing that I wanted to win,”
Frandsen said. “I wanted to be part of that
first team that ever won there. It’s an unfor-
tunate situation that it didn’t work out. They
didn’t see me as a fit. But I’ve landed on my
feet a couple times in some really great
While it took some years and five organi-
zations for Frandsen to catch on with a con-
tender, his minor league career began amid
the first in a long line of San Jose’s power-
house seasons, including a California
League championship in Frandsen’s first
full pro season of 2005. Under manager
Lenn Sakata, the minor-league Giants
enjoyed four straight winning seasons. A
former utility infielder himself, Sakata iden-
tified the old-school cut of Frandsen’s jib
nearly immediately.
“The most impressive part of his game —
his attitude about the game and his compet-
itive desire to succeed,” Sakata said. “That’s
probably the intangible, the separator that
made him a major league player, because he
wasn’t an overly talented guy. What he did
bring every day was the will to win, a strong
desire to improve and a lot of moxie. The
kid had a lot of savvy when it came to trying
to defeat the other team”
Before being promoted from the
California League midseason, Frandsen hit
.351 while cutting his teeth at two different
infield positions. While there, he played
with many future big leaguers, including
Nate Schierholtz. At San Jose, Sakata went
on to coach Tim Lincecum in 2006, and
Pablo Sandoval and Sergio Romo in 2007.
According to Frandsen, Sakata was pivotal
in developing the players not just as future
major leaguers but as winning baseball
“[Sakata] is one of the best baseball peo-
ple you will ever be around,” Frandsen said.
“It’s hard to find too many more passionate
people about the game, and one that truly
believed in the development of a player, but
developing a winning player. Everybody
talks about player development … but no
one really talks about player development
on a winning side … and [Sakata] was all
about that.”
It should come as no surprise the
Nationals, prior to the season, started reap-
ing the harvest of former Giants players.
Washington hired former Giants great Matt
Williams as manager last October. The
Nationals went on to sign Burriss, a
Washington D.C. native, to a minor league
contract in December. And most recently,
the Nationals this week inked Schierholtz
to a minor league contract.
After being released by Cubs Aug. 13,
Schierholtz received the offer from
Washington. Before signing Monday,
Schierholtz made a telephone call to
Frandsen to talk about the current direction
of the Nationals.
“That’s my best friend in baseball and
ever since ’05 we’ve been as tight as can
be,” Frandsen said. “We discussed a lot of
things … and how unbelievable the organi-
zation is from top to bottom.”
The Nats have been playing unbelievably
well as of late, especially considering they
are without one of their biggest offensive
stars in Ryan Zimmerman, who hit the dis-
abled list July 22 with a hamstring strain.
In that time, Washington has gone from
moving into sole possession of first place
on July 21 to extending a seven-game lead
in the NL East.
And with the Giants in Washington this
weekend in a possible NL playoff preview,
Frandsen will certainly touch base with his
former baseball family — first-and-fore-
most, Dave Righetti. A San Jose native
himself, Righetti will forever be linked
with Frandsen in Giants history as the long-
time pitching coach gave up his famed No.
19 when Frandsen made his major league
debut in 2006. The number holds significant
meaning, as it was the number worn by
Frandsen’s brother throughout his youth.
Frandsen’s brother D.J. passed away in
“When [the Giants] come to town, it’s a
special moment,” Frandsen said. “I get to
see Rags. Dave being so close to my family
and him being able to see me wearing 19
again is always a good thing. It’s always
special, because how bitter I was at the
beginning when [when the Giants traded
me]. It went away awhile ago with how
respectful and how great they’ve been as an
organization to me still, and my family. ”

Kevin Frandsen,who grew up in SanJose and
broke into the big leagues with SanFrancisco,
appears to have found a home with the NL
East-leading WashingtonNationals.
MIAMI — As the U.S. appetite for soccer
grows, more American kids are harboring
dreams of becoming the next David
Beckham or Leo Messi. Their aspirations,
realistic or not, have not gone unnoticed by
top international teams, which are trying to
capitalize financially.
European clubs like Barcelona, Liverpool
and Arsenal have long sent coaches to work
at U.S. summer camps, but now some are
opening year-round U.S. academies aimed at
finding new talent while also expanding
their fan bases and revenue opportunities in
the states. Later this month, Barcelona will
open FCB Escola Florida, its first permanent
U.S academy, in Fort Lauderdale. Argentine
Boca Juniors and English Everton are
already operating in New York and
Connecticut, respectively. Other teams are
expected to follow.
The expansion of such programs is part of
a bigger trend, as major international clubs
try to grow their brands in the U.S. to battle
for the hearts and pocketbooks of Americans
today and in decades to come. Building an
international fan base is becoming impor-
tant for the top teams, which derive a large
chunk of their revenue from overseas broad-
casting and merchandising.
“If you can engage kids when they are
young, then they will stay with you for the
rest of their lives,” says Simon Chadwick, a
sports economist at England’s University of
The U.S. soccer audience is reaching new
heights, with this summer’s World Cup set-
ting ratings records. NBC is paying $250
million to broadcast the English Premier
League. A record crowd of 109,318 packed
Michigan Stadium on Aug. 2 to see an exhi-
bition match between Manchester United
and Real Madrid. Major League Soccer is
averaging more than 18,000 per game, just
off its 2012 high.
When teams started opening schools
around the world back in the 1990s, their
early impulse was to scout and develop play-
ers. Now, their main goal is to build their
brand, says Simon Kuper, the author of sev-
eral books on the economics of sports.

fun to go back in that stadium.”
Oakland, in fact, has served as an outpost for
former Packers in recent years with former Green
Bay director of football operations Reggie
McKenzie now Raiders general manager.
Receiver James Jones and defensive lineman
C.J. Wilson left Green Bay as free agents this
year to sign in Oakland.
Jones’ departure in particular left room in the
Packers’ receiving corps to pick up catches.
Rookie Davante Adams, drafted in the second
round by Green Bay, has taken notice. He’s try-
ing to earn Rodgers’ confidence.
“He’s going to come out and demand the most
out of each and every one of us, whether it’s a
seven-year vet, or ... a rookie,” Adams said. “So
he holds us to a high standard and I feel like
that’s what’s making us better, because I feel I’m
getting better every day.”
Adams played in a prolific offense in college
at Fresno State, where his quarterback was Derek
Carr. Also drafted in the second round, Carr is a
backup with the Raiders. Carr sustained a con-
cussion in last week’s game.
The starter, Matt Schaub, hasn’t looked great
in the first two preseason games with one score
on seven drives. Maybe Woodson will pass
along a few tips on facing a Packers defense still
coordinated by Dom Capers.
While still with the Packers before the 2011
season, Woodson challenged the team to go
undefeated a year after winning the Super Bowl.
Green Bay started 13-0 before its only regular
season loss at Kansas City, 19-14.
Woodson “was a guy who people just respect-
ed so much for the way he carried himself and the
way he played on the field,” Rodgers said, “and
it’s hard to replace a guy like that.”

By David Brandt
Arkansas coach Bret Bielema proudly
posted a message on Twitter last spring that
featured the Razorbacks’ new helmets — a
futuristic design by Riddell called the
SpeedFlex that is supposed to be the latest
in head protection.
A vocal proponent of player safety,
Bielema is happy to be a part of the cutting
edge. But it's a bit of a leap of faith. He has
no proof that the SpeedFlex — or any other
helmet — can reduce the risk of a devastat-
ing head injury.
“It’s just like everything else — every-
thing advances and you get better at it,”
Bielema said at a recent Arkansas practice.
“I think our kids really like the way (the hel-
mets) feel. They feel snug. They feel fit. So I
think that’s a step in the right direction.”
With lawsuits and concern regarding con-
cussions hanging over every level of foot-
ball, the race to develop safer helmets and
other equipment has never been more
intense. Even so, experts say it remains to
be seen if new technology has made a dent
in reducing concussions on the football
“It’s very admirable that they’re trying to
get better,” said Dr. Robert Cantu, a Boston-
based neurosurgeon who specializes in
sports concussions. “But with regards to
concussions, it’s a very complex issue ...
There really isn’t any helmet that has clear-
ly been shown on the football field to be
superior to other helmets.”
The NCAA recently reached a proposed
settlement of a class-action lawsuit by
agreeing to toughen return-to-play rules for
players who receive head blows and create a
$70 million fund to pay for thousands of
current and former athletes to undergo test-
ing to determine whether they suffered brain
trauma while playing football and other
contact sports.
Concussions occur when the brain moves
inside the skull from an impact or a
whiplash effect, but it’s still an injury that
doctors are learning about. There’s also
debate about the best way to test for concus-
sion factors or how to even identify when
concussions occur.
The SpeedFlex’s new design features a
five-sided indentation on the crown of the
helmet and a faceguard that both have some
flexibility, which is supposed to allow some
force to be absorbed and dispersed instead of
going directly to the head.
There’s also a revamped ratchet chinstrap
system for faster adjustments and a quick
release for the faceguard that could benefit
medical staff seeking access to the face in
the event of an emergency.
Thad Ide, Riddell’s senior vice president
for research and product development, said
his company isn’t claiming that the
SpeedFlex can help reduce concussions. But
like Bielema, he believes progress is being
made in regards to lessening head impacts.
“We’ll let the medical researchers weigh
in on the medical data around concussions,
because that’s kind of a moving target right
now because of all the things that are being
learned,” Ide said. “But what we can do is try
to reduce the forces of impact to the player’s
head. I think reducing those forces is
unequivocally a good thing.”
Race for a better helmet, but will it work?
Danny Diekroeger extends hit streak
With a single to center field Thursday night,
Danny Diekroeger extended his current minor
league hitting streak to 15 games, the longest
hitting streak for Cardinals Short-Season affil-
iate State College this season.
The former Menlo School and Stanford
standout took an 0-for-3 into the sixth inning,
but with State College trailing 3-2 produced a
bases-loaded single to drive home a pair, giv-
ing the Spikes a 4-3 lead. State College went
on to score seven runs in the inning and six
more in the seventh to win it 14-3.
Diekroeger’s streak surpasses State
College’s previous best by Jake Stone, a 14-
game streak between July 3-19. Diekroeger is
currently hitting .282 with five home runs and
30 RBIs.
Stone is linked to another Stanford alum this
season. Although he has since found his foot-
ing at State College, he got off to a rough start
at Low-APeoria. The left-handed hitting Stone
was assigned to Peoria out of minor league
spring camp, but hit just .136 (14 for 103)
before being returned to extended spring train-
ing. Since joining State College he has hit
.259 through 161 at bats.
Stone was supplanted at Peoria by first base-
man Justin Ringo. The former Cardinal is cur-
rently batting .278 with eight home runs and
39 RBIs through 241 at bats.
The longest hitting streak in State College
history came in 2007 when the team was a
Pirates affiliate. Brian Friday had an 18-game
streak that season.
Diekroeger is one of two brothers currently
playing minor league baseball. His older
brother Kenny is an infielder in the Kansas
City Royals organization.

embarrassingly low graduation
rates, and a changed culture that
has produced a stronger work
“I don’t have a number of wins
and losses, although I do expect to
see wins this year,” Williams said.
“I think the campus will be OK
with a few wins if Sonny has the
right type of player and academic
performance. He’s doing that. We
also want to see a more competi-
tive team on the field. The way the
season ended last year was a bit of
a downer. ”
Making the recent struggles on
the field and in the classroom more
painful at Cal is what Williams
describes as “Stanford envy. ”
While the Golden Bears have fall-
en to the bottom of the Pac-12,
their Bay Area rivals at Stanford
have made four straight trips to
BCS games while dealing with
perhaps the toughest academic
requirements in major college
It’s a far cry from just a decade
ago when Cal was challenging
USC for dominance in the confer-
ence and the Cardinal were bottom
dwellers before Jim Harbaugh
turned the program around.
Williams said that example shows
a turnaround is possible with the
right coach and the right commit-
ment from the school as a whole.
While overseeing the football
program is the highest-profile
task for Williams, it is not the
most crucial. Williams said his
three main priorities are helping
Chancellor Nicholas Dirks devel-
op a sustainable financial model
for college athletics, improving
the college experience for student-
athletes, and restoring the focus
on academics in the athletic
Most of Cal’s teams in the
Olympic sports do an admirable
job graduating athletes, but the
football and men’s basketball
teams have lagged far behind.
According to numbers released last
fall by the NCAA, Cal’s 44 percent
graduation rate for football play-
ers who entered school from 2003-
06 was the lowest of any major
conference team. The 38 percent
rate in men’s basketball was fourth
worst among major conferences.
Dirks put together a task force to
address those issues. Williams was
a member even before he took on
his new role as interim AD. The
report will be released by the end
of next month.
“I think he will be disappointed,
I think the campus will be disap-
pointed and I think Berkeley
alums and the Berkeley communi-
ty will be disappointed if we don’t
see bold recommendations,”
Williams said.
Williams wouldn’t discuss
specifics, but said getting athletes
more involved with the rest of the
student body and making sure all
students have access to classes
they need for their majors were
high priorities.
The department had already
increased support services for ath-
letes and has seen improved
results. The football team had a
969 out of 1,000 in the Academic
Performance Rate for 2012-13
released by the NCAAin May, and
players have had strong grades
ever since Dykes arrived.
“I’m very focused on academics
and we were before I took over, ”
Williams said. “We have already
made changes and will make

Lynx’s Moore wins WNBA MVP award
Minnesota’s Maya Moore has won the
WNBA most valuable player award after
leading the league in scoring.
The WNBA announced that Moore will
receive the award before the Lynx host San
Antonio in the opener of the Western
Conference semifinals on Thursday night.
It’s the first league MVP award for Moore
in her four-year career. She averaged a
career-best 23.9 points and set a WNBA

Sports brief
By Jake Coyle
After being clonked over the head in
1944’s “Murder, My Sweet,” Raymond
Chandler’s immortal private eye Philip
Marlowe wryly narrated the experience of
being knocked out: “A black pool opened
up at my feet. I jumped in.”
In “Sin City: ADame to Kill For,” a belat-
ed, 3-D sequel to 2005’s “Sin City, ”
cultishly-adored graphic novelist Frank
Miller and genre-exploiting director
Robert Rodriguez have again jumped right
into the same dark abyss Dick Powell’s
Marlowe fell into, into the same noir sea —
or, at least, some version of it. This is hard-
boiled on heroin.
Both “Sin City” movies are double layers
of aesthetic idolatry: Miller, famed for his
“Dark Knight” reimagining of Batman,
worships at the pulp altar of Chandler and
Mickey Spillane, while Rodriguez is slav-
ishly devoted to turning Miller’s two-
dimensional drawings into cinematic flesh.
(Miller’s name precedes the film’s title and
he shares directing credit with Rodriguez.)
They each approach their tasks with gusto
that can only be admired, even if the results
can’t .
Like its predecessor, “A Dame to Kill
For” was made with an almost entirely dig-
ital palate, placing actors — Mickey
Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica
Alba, Josh Brolin, Eva Green — on a stark-
ly black-and-white canvas in a fictional
(but very Los Angeles-like) permanent-
midnight metropolis of rampant crime,
extreme brutality and skin-baring lurid-
ness. It’s described with tough-guy poetry
like: “the kind of place your father doesn’t
want to talk about.”

in a barebones dispatch office in the Hill
District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, inde-
pendent drivers pass the time between trans-
porting fares. Pulitzer Prize-winning
Playwright August Wilson’s language won-
derfully captures the give-and-take, easy chat-
ter, jokes and arguments of the men he knew
growing up in the Hill District, and a uni-
formly strong ensemble does justice to his
engaging work. The intimate setting of the
Gough Street Playhouse (60 seats set on three
sides of the stage) keeps the audience close to
the action. Two hours and 40 minutes with
one intermission. Directed and designed by
Lewis Campbell. Through Aug. 31. Jitney is
the first production in “August in August,”
Multi Ethnic Theater project to produce an
August Wilson play every August for the next
six years.
CAST: Fabian Herd as Youngblood;
Vernon Medearis as Turnbo; Trevor Nigel
Lawrence as Fielding; Charles Johnson as
Doub; Stuart Elwyn Hall as Shealy; Anthony
Pride as Philmore; Bennie Lewis as Becker;
Robin Hughes as Rena; and David Stewart as
Booster. Director Campbell said, “Some of
the most talented Bay Area actors are people
with day jobs who work in theater for sheer
passion and true meaning. Jitney, a play
about working class people, allows our actors
to bring their real life experience to the
stage.” The cast of Jitney includes three bus
drivers, a construction worker, a retired fire-
fighter, a motorbike salesman, a mental
health case manager, a filmmaker, a store
clerk/screenwriter and a Ph.D. candidate in
psychology who writes mystery novels.
DIRECTIONS. 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday;
7 p.m. Sunday through Aug 30. 2 p.m.
Sunday matinee Aug. 31. General Admission
$30-$35 Students/Seniors $25-$30. Gough
Street Playhouse, 1620 Gough St. San
Francisco. www.wehavemet.org.
Wilson was born in Pittsburgh in 1945,
dropped out of school in the 10th-grade, and
as a playwright was completely self-taught.
Wilson’s best known plays are Fences (1985)
(which won a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony
Award), The Piano Lesson (1990) (a Pulitzer
Prize and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle
Award), Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and Joe
Turner’s Come and Gone. These are four of the
10 plays of his “Pittsburgh Cycle,” all but
one set in the “The Hill District,” the African-
American neighborhood adjacent to down-
town Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Each of the
10 plays is set in a different decade of the
20th Century and depicts how the particular
era affected African-Americans. Only
Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is set
somewhere other than Pittsburgh. Jitney
reflects Wilson’s view of the 1970s on The
Hill. Although the plays of the cycle are not a
serial story, some characters appear (at vari-
ous ages) in more than one of the cycle’s
plays. August Wilson died in 2005.
20 years Lewis Campbell has directed and
designed 20 MET productions. During a 35-
year teaching career, he directed designed, and
built more than 100 productions and designed
and installed more than 15 working theaters
in various found spaces. At San Francisco’s
Mission High School, Campbell established
Multi Ethnic Theater. Later, with a California
Arts Council grant, he developed The Center
for Theater Training (CTT), a citywide pro-
gram for students from various high schools.
The center became the Actor Training
Program at School of the Arts (SOTA) when
that alternative high school was formed. He
taught full time in the Unified School District
until retirement to become Artistic Director
of Multi Ethnic Theater.
Sept. 12 through Oct. 12 Custom Made
Theatre Company presents the Bay Area
Premiere of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse
Five directed by Brian Katz. The satirical
anti-war novel that brought Vonnegut to
prominence as a major voice in American fic-
tion has been adapted for the stage by Tony-
nominated and Oscar-winning Eric
Simonson. Eleven actors play dozens of
characters against a multimedia backdrop.
Nov. 7 to Dec. 7 brings Three Tall Women by
Edward Albee. A 92-year old woman on the
verge of death engages with herself as a
knowing 56-year old and a contemptuous 26-
year old.
Fabian Herd, left, and Vernon Medearis portray two taxi drivers in Jitney, August Wilson’s play
about independent drivers that serve a neighborhood where city cabs refuse to go. At the
Gough Street Playhouse in San Francisco through Aug. 31.

Stitched together are a grotesque
handful of overlapping revenge tales
carried out by thin stereotypes: a strip-
per (Alba) bent on killing a corrupt
politician (the magnetic, teeth-clench-
ing Powers Boothe); a pained loner
(Brolin) caught in the spell of a
Medusa-like femme fatale (Green, her
green eyes aflame); a gambler (Gordon-
Levitt) aiming to, at the poker table,
humble the father (again Boothe’s sen-
ator) who abandoned him. Rourke, with
an exaggerated rock of a face and a
trench coat for a cape, is a kind of over-
seer and always-game enforcer.
The best thing about the shadowy
digital landscape is that it brings the
focus even more sharply on the actors’
faces. As a murderous adulterer, Ray
Liotta’s eyes are even buggier, which
didn’t seem possible.
It’s a nihilistic nightmare of a world.
Glimmers of hope or love were long
ago extinguished, and to say the place
gets tiresome would be an understate-
ment. Miller proudly wallows in the
moral emptiness, which might actually
haunt if it had anything about life in it
that wasn’t cribbed from pulp clichés.
There are gestures to empowered
women (Alba gets a gun in this one, and
Rosario Dawson again reigns over the
“Old Town” all-female gang) but they
ring hollow amid the otherwise over-
bearingly juvenile presentation of
women as scantily clad objects of
As an exercise in stylistic verisimili-
tude, the two (extremely similar) “Sin
City” films are at least interesting,
innovative footnotes in two of the
most widespread trends in movies: dig-
ital filmmaking and comic book adapta-
tions. Rodriguez’s near-total use of
green screen to fill in the backgrounds
was a minor landmark in painting with
pixels. It gives the films a strange air-
lessness that makes “Sin City” initial-
ly bracing in its conceptual surrealism
before the tedium of its shallowness
sets in.
In a movie world so devoted to
comics, “Sin City” tries like nothing
else to faithfully transfer to the big
screen the experience of reading one.
But in the end, the filmmakers only
highlight that such a union of mediums
— strip and cinema — can lead down an
empty rabbit hole.

access to devices that make digital learning
possible,” Superintendent Jan Christensen
said in a prepared statement. “We are grate-
ful to Startup:Education, Mr. Zuckerberg
and Ms. Chan, for making it possible for
our students to use technology in learning,
and providing training to teachers and par-
Startup:Education staff members have
worked closely with district staff members
over the past few months to determine how
to invest the money so that it has the
largest possible impact on student learn-
ing. Startup:Education and the district have
agreed that most of the grant will be spent
supporting digital learning at Hoover and
Taft. Of the funds, $497,000 is going to
Hoover, while $295,000 is going to Taft.
There’s $130,950 being split between the
two schools. Of the shared money, $7,050
will go to parent education and support,
while $70,000 is going to teacher and pro-
fessional development.
New technology is needed for the state’s
new Common Core curriculum that inte-
grates more technology in the classroom
and collaborative learning. The district is
looking to have one device for every three
students, said John Baker, deputy superin-
tendent of curriculum and instruction.
“It builds digital literacy that is needed
for the impending the Common Core,”
Baker said. “We needed the infrastructure to
do that. This will help us to achieve that
Further, the technology integration proj-
ect includes purchasing about 260 iPads and
Chromebooks, providing professional
development to teachers on how to use the
devices effectively in the classroom and
providing training to parents to help their
children use these devices in learning. The
project has been devised to support exist-
ing successful initiatives at Hoover and
Taft, such as the Sobrato Early Academic
Language early reading program and the
Guided Language Acquisition Development
These were two of four schools in the dis-
trict where the technology infrastructure
was really needed, Baker said.
Hoover Principal Amanda Rothengast is
in her seventh year at the school. It’s
essential for helping close the digital
divide because 80 percent of its students are
English as a second language and 90 per-
cent are on free and reduced lunch, she said.
“Many of our students do not have access
to technology at home,” she said. “Wi t h
Common Core, it’s so essential to have
technology. We are thrilled we have been
selected for this grant. It means so much to
teachers and students and parents.”
A small part of the grant, $30,000, will
support a school redesign project for John
Gill Elementary School in partnership with
Innovate Public Schools. This is paying
for half of the new assistant principal’s
salary. Nick Fanourgiakis is stepping in to
help work on programs that work with soft-
ware to advance students in math and lan-
guage arts.
“We really valued spending time with the
district staff in Redwood City to identify
promising areas of support for their
schools and teachers,” said Executive
Director Jen Holleran of Startup:Education
in a prepared statement. “We’re at the very
earliest stages of our work and we’re
encouraged by the enthusiasm in the local
community. ”

Because Democrats control both houses

The move could give Democrats a boost

Brown said during a recent trip to Mexico
that the estimated 57,000 unaccompanied
children who have been caught crossing
into the U.S. illegally since Oct. 1 present
a humanitarian challenge.
Atkins said some lawmakers visited
detention centers in Ventura County this
“I think we all came away with a feeling
that these kids really needed our support,
that it was about their safety, their due
process, the ability to look beyond bigger
political considerations and deal with the
humanitarian crisis,” she said.
Atkins said the money would go to non-
profit groups that offer help to immigrants
and would come from savings in the
Assembly’s budget. The funds will be
included in bills to be taken up next week.
Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff, R-
Diamond Bar, said the proposed legislation
will prompt discussion of the appropriate
role for California in the immigration
issue. Republicans will need to review the
legislation, which was not yet written on
Thursday, before deciding whether to sup-
port it, he said.
Republicans in the state Assembly also
declined to comment on the proposed legis-
lation, but spokeswoman Amanda
Fulkerson said they hope to work with
Democrats to ensure children’s rights are
The legislation will also give state courts
the jurisdiction to make findings needed for
federal officials to grant special immigrant
juvenile status to the minors. Steinberg
said children need a ruling from a state court
before they can make an asylum claim in
federal court.
“Too many state judges aren’t aware of
this requirement and are denying any form
of preliminary state relief because they
think this is just a federal immigration
issue,” Steinberg said.
It will be labeled as urgent, and officials
hope the money can start going out within
two or three weeks.
The U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services estimates there are about
3,900 unaccompanied minors in
“We’re not sending the National Guard to
confront these children as other states have
done,” said Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-
Watsonville, vice-chairman of the Latino
legislative caucus, taking a jab at Texas
Gov. Rick Perry’s decision to deploy
troops to the Texas-Mexico border.
Alejo, an attorney by training, said chil-
dren are more likely to be deported if they
do not have legal representation. He said
immigration law is complicated and
requires specialized knowledge.

depends on who’s cooking that year.
There’s only a couple guys that are
confident enough to make that much
chili taste good. It’s hard to make 40
gallons of chili taste good,” Sims
said. “But we have three or four guys in
the department that can pull it off.”
After working to push San Mateo for
the win last year, firefighter Joe
Rupena will once again represent the
department by helping to cook chili
this year.
“It’s just whoever’s up for it. It’s a
lot of work, but I like to cook. We
cook [chili] almost every tour, so you
get a lot of time to work on your recipe
and get the flavor that’s going to
work.” Rupena said. “We’re usually
scraping the bottom of the pot.”
Cooking a large enough batch of
chili to satisfy thousands of attendees
costs about $1,000, San Mateo fire-
fighter Andrew Martinez said.
This is the sixth year the San Mateo
County Fire Fighters’ Association has
hosted the entertainment-filled after-
noon that helps send local children
with MDA to camp, raise awareness,
provide medical supplies and con-
tribute to finding a cure for neuromus-
cular diseases.
“The fire department in general,
across the country, is one of the single
biggest organizations that donates to
MDA,” Sims said. “Usually it’s with
the fill the boot fundraiser, but we were
kind of looking to do something dif-
ferent. … We wanted to do a more com-
munity-based event.”
The annual event raises about
$15,000 to $20,000, which con-
tributes to the $40,000 cost of a week-
long summer camp, Martinez said.
Martinez said he was prompted to act
after meeting some of the children that
suffer from neuromuscular disorders.
Many of them are just like normal kids
with fully developed brains, but strug-
gle with muscle function that can leave
them in wheelchairs, Martinez said.
“I went up to the boot camp and it
was probably one of the most special
days I’ve ever had,” Martinez said.
The summer camp in Sebastopol
supports children and gives parents a
break to focus on other parts of the
family, Martinez said.
“It lets the kids be around other kids
that suffer from MDA. It truly tries to
help them feel like they’re normal,”
Martinez said. “It’s just a really sad
With support from the city, Parks
and Recreation Department and com-
munity, the fire departments are able to
enliven the park. The venue will boast
live music, a kid zone with a bounce
house slide, dunk tank, face painting,
great food and drinks, Sims said.
“It’s a great venue, the location, it
brings a lot of people to the downtown
area. Especially if we can get a couple
thousand people in the park,”
Martinez said.
Several restaurants will also com-
pete in their own category including
Block 34, Whole Foods, Kingston
Café, Steelhead Brewing Company,
Three Restaurant and Bar and the
kitchen at Versailles senior apartment
In both the fire department and
restaurant categories, each organiza-
tion has the chance to win the people’s
choice and impress a panel of local
This year, San Mateo Mayor Robert
Ross, Councilman David Lim, two
children who suffer from MDAand two
local chefs will decide who takes home
the awards, Sims said.
The entry fee is $10 to taste all the
samples one can stomach, receive a
free drink and a full bowl of a favorite
chili. The event is free for small chil-
dren. The people’s choice contest is
won after attendees try as many recipes
as desired and then turn in their ticket
to the department from which they
want a full bowl. Whichever fire
department collects the most tickets,
won over the crowd, Sims said.
The large public event takes signifi-
cant work and money to put on, but it’s
thankfully supported by the communi-
t y, firefighters and especially the
cadets, Sims said.
“They’re a big help because it takes
a lot of people to run the event. Along
with a lot of off-duty firefighters and
firefighters’ families, [they] are basi-
cally just making it happen,” Sims
Even if someone’s not a big chili
fan, Sims said the entire event is sure
to entertain.
“It’s for a great cause, for the kids to
go to camp. It’s also a getaway, you
can just hang out on the lawn, listen to
really good music,” Sims said. “It’s a
really high energy fun time.”

Minh Tran, 54, and Mai Tran, 52, both
of Oakland. On Wednesday, both were
sentenced for misdemeanor counts of
taking more than three times the crab
limit and illegally taking the crabs for
profit. Athird charge of failing to dis-
play the catch to warden upon demand
was dismissed as part of a plea deal.
Minh Tran, who has prior convic-
tions for the same conduct in a dif-
ferent county, received 10 days in
jail, three years of court probation
and a $20,580 fine. Mai Tran
received five days jail followed by
two years of court probation.
The pair must also forfeit their boat
to the California Department of Fish
and Wildlife which typically auctions
them off but in this case will likely
destroy it because of the compart-
The pair were in an 18-foot Boston
Whaler power boat at Pillar Point
Harbor in Half Moon Bay when
approached Feb. 15 by a Department
of Fish and Wildlife warden. The war-
den asked them if they had any luck
fishing and was told they had caught 20
crabs, visible in an open ice chest,
which is the limit allowed at 10 each.
The warden inspected the boat as the
Trans loaded it onto their trailer and
found a canvass bag under rope in the
vehicle’s front anchor components.
The bag held 16 more crabs. The pair
denied having any more but further
inspection turned up 56 crabs hidden
behind the boat batteries in the driver
console and 16 others hidden in sec-
tions where the fiberglass backing had
been cut away under the driver and pas-
senger seat cushions. By the end, 108
commercial grade Dungeness crabs
were recovered and returned to the
“It was almost like a drug boat with
all those secret spaces,” District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
The Trans’ attorney, Nichole Ryan,
could not be reached for comment.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-
321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
