Despite two Belmont planning
commissioners’ refusal to sign a
new code of ethics aimed at pro-
moting collegiality among elect-
ed and appointed officials, the
City Council decided to let them
finish their terms as long as they
abide by the rules.
Planning commissioners
Kristin Mercer and Karin Hold
chose not to sign the code because
they felt it stifled freedom of
speech and consequentially faced
the council dismissing them at a
meeting Tuesday night.
The code, which was adopted
June 10, was created in response
to public disapproval over the way
some commissioners and coun-
cilmembers treated each other and
the community they serve, accord-
ing to the council. To give the new
mandate teeth, appointed officials
can be dismissed and elected offi-
cials can be turned down for com-
mittee seats, Mayor Warren
Lieberman said.
“When we adopted the code of
ethics we weren’t looking for a lit-
mus test,” Lieberman said, accord-
ing to a video of Tuesday night’s
meeting. “My perception was we
had heard from the community that
they wanted us, that is the council
and the commissioners, to behave
respectfully, to work well with
each other, to treat the members of
the public … with respect and dig-
nity. ”
Within the code, city represen-
tatives are to avoid offensive lan-
guage, conduct active listening,
avoid smirking or insulting the
public, staff and peers. Appointed
and elected officials are encour-

Belmont City Council to let planning commissioners finish their terms
Children cross the busy Ralston Avenue near the Carlmont Shopping Center in Belmont. The City Council has
approved a conceptual plan that outlines improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles.
By Samantha Weigel
After more than a year of study-
ing ways to solve congestion on
busy Ralston Avenue, the Belmont
City Council approved a conceptu-
al plan Tuesday that outlines more
than $8.5 million in improve-
ments to ease traffic and create a
safer passage for bicyclists and
Approving the plan didn’t lock
any particular project in stone but
paved the way for the city to pro-
ceed with grant applications.
“I look at this as very much an
incremental improvement. ... I
can look at the report and there are
a lot of recommendations I have
concerns about, but I also know we
will have fairly substantial discus-
sions as they come,” Mayor
Warren Lieberman said, according
to a video of Tuesday night’s coun-
cil meeting. “If we were not to
adopt the plan, I think we would
also be potentially guilty of let-
ting perfection be the enemy of
the good.”
Recommendations for the
diverse east to west road that
directly connects State Route 92
to Highway 101 with nearby
schools and a busy shopping cen-
ter include items for pedestrians,
bicyclists and drivers.
To account for nearly 40,000
vehicles that take Ralston Avenue
daily, consultants suggested
adding traffic calming measures
such as lights and roundabouts and
extending turn lanes. For pedestri-
ans, the city will consider repair-
ing and widening sidewalks,
increasing crossing time at lights
and crosswalk visibility.
Despite citizens who pushed for
a continuous bike lane and lower
speed limits, engineers and the
council emphasized it wasn’t prac-
tical given the layout of the city’s
main arterial or legal per the
state’s vehicle code.
Building a bike path at the steep
incline near State Route 92 would
require removing a lane of traffic in
each direction, which most who
were surveyed said wasn’t accept-
able, said consultant Mark
Spencer, principal engineer with

State court:Workers’
comp OK for kickball injury
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Have you ever
been hurt in a company softball or kick-
ball game? The South Carolina Supreme
Court says you may be entitled to work-
ers’ compensation.
On Wednesday, the court ruled that
Stephen Whigham, who was injured in a
company kickball game, is entitled to
workers’ compensation benefit s
because he was required to attend the
game as part of his job.
Whigham worked for Jackson
Dawson Communications, a public
relations firm. With the encouragement
of his boss, he organized a kickball
game as a team-building event for
employees. He rented a facility and had
T-shirts made.
During the Friday afternoon game,
Whigham shattered two bones in his
leg while trying to avoid being tagged
out. He underwent two surgeries and has
been told that he’ll ultimately need a
knee replacement, according to court
A hearing will be held to figure out
how much Whigham should get.
Workers’ compensation commission-
ers initially denied Whigham’s claim,
saying that he hadn’t been required to be
at the game. An appeals court upheld
that ruling, but the high court said
Whigham had to be there because he
organized the game, so it had become
part of his job duties.
“Although the event may have been
voluntary for company employees gen-
erally, the undisputed facts unequivocal-
ly indicate Whigham was expected to
attend as part of his professional
duties,” the court wrote.
Justices also pointed to testimony
from Whigham’s boss, who said he
would have been “surprised and
shocked” if Whigham hadn’t showed
Vermont bistro scolded
for removing its bacon sign
WINOOSKI, Vt. — AVermont restau-
rant that removed a bacon advertise-
ment called insensitive to vegans and
Muslims is being criticized for doing
Sneakers Bistro and Cafe in
Winooski last week took down a sign
saying “Yield for Sneakers Bacon” after
comments were posted in an online
community forum by “a vegan and a
member of a Muslim household.”
Vegans and Muslims don’t eat pork.
Sneakers’ menu features items includ-
ing a breakfast sandwich with home-
made turkey bacon. Owner Marc
Dysinger says the sign was meant to be
fun and to show the restaurant cares
about Winooski, a city of 7,000 resi-
dents with many Muslim families.
The Burlington Free Press reports
people have criticized the restaurant
for what they feel was an unnecessary
move. The restaurant has hired a pub-
lic-relations firm to help it deal with
the bad publicity.
Crested Butte to be
Bud Light’s ‘Whatever’ town
DENVER — Some people in normal-
ly laid back Crested Butte are not up for
“Whatever” - a secretive Bud Light plan
to paint their mountain town blue and
turn it into a fantasy town for an online
and television ad campaign.
The company has agreed to pay the
town $250,000 to fence off its main
street and bring in more than 1,000 rev-
elers to the town of 1,500 for the Sept.
5 - 7 event being promoted on social
media, The Denver Post reported.
Secrecy has been part of the “Are you
up for Whatever?” campaign from its
beginning at last year’s Super Bowl
when Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared
in a spot playing pingpong with Don
Cheadle in an elevator with a llama.
Town councilors have been quietly
working on the plan since the spring.
Word began leaking out recently as out-
siders showed up with measuring tapes
and checklists, telling locals they
couldn’t talk about what they were
doing and booking lots of hotel rooms.
Residents, including some in cos-
tumes, packed a three-hour meeting to
talk about the event on Monday night.
Some said they backed it as a way to
make money for the town but others
worried joining forces with a large com-
pany would damage the image of a town
that hosts an annual film festival and is
more partial to craft beers.

Alimousine safety bill inspired by a fatal
fire on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge that
claimed five lives awaits the governor’s sig-
nature after passage Wednesday by the state
The bill authored by state Sen. Jerry Hill,
D-San Mateo, proposes bringing the safety
standards for modified limousines with a
capacity under 10 people in line with the
regulations for larger vehicles such as being
equipped with two fire extinguishers and
having annual safety inspections by the
California Highway Patrol.
Hill tried a similar bill last year and
received bipartisan support but Gov. Jerry
Brown vetoed it because of cost concerns.
Hill’s bill was inspired by the May 5,
2013, fire in a Foster City-bound limousine
carrying nine women celebrating a recent
wedding. Five, including
the 31-year-old bride,
died in the burning vehi-
cle when they could not
escape. An investigation
concluded the failure of
the vehicle’s suspension
system started the fire.
Friction from contact by
the rear drive shaft with
the floor pan ignited the
carpet and foam padding inside the vehicle
where nine passengers were seated on their
way to a bridal shower in Foster City. The
deaths were ruled accidental but sparked a
flurry of bills governing regulations and
safety measures.
The following month in Walnut Creek,
another modified limousine caught fire but
all 10 female passengers, many older than
90, escaped unharmed. Neither limousine
had a fire extinguisher or was subject to
inspection because of the smaller size.
“Without SB 611, thousands of limou-
sines will continue to go uninspected and
will not be equipped with fire extinguish-
ers,” Hill said in a prepared statement. “This
legislation simply requires the same safety
protections for all limousines regardless of
their seating capacity, because life in a
nine-passenger limo is just as valuable as a
life in a 10-passenger limo.”
Hill’s bill, which was unanimously
approved the state Senate, also requires the
CHP to develop a fee structure to cover the
entire cost of the inspection program. In
his veto of the 2013 bill, Brown had asked
the Legislature to send a similar bill in this
session but with the added authority for the
CHP to charge for inspections.

The actions of an off-duty California

in the city at 12:04 p.m. Friday when he

The officer also asked bystanders to call
911 for emergency responders, but the boy
eventually spit up the obstruction, a small
grape, and started breathing normally
again, according to the CHP.
Montiel continued to look after the boy
until medical personnel arrived.
“Swift and correct action is extremely
important when you have an obstructed air-
way,” CHP Redwood City Capt. Mike
Maskarich said in a statement. “We are

Lim had been in intensive care at Seton
Medical Center in Daly City since June 18
suffering congestive heart failure, renal
failure and liver failure, and was described
by doctors as “gravely ill,” according to
court records.
He was wheelchair-bound in his initial
appearance in federal court shortly after his
arrest in March and was released on an unse-

But Lim’s name will

named in a 228-count
indictment as the princi-

While Lim was not accused of having

Aweek and a half after half the
nine men accused of smuggling
$23 million worth of pot from
Mexico through Pescadero
copped plea deals, federal author-
ities swooped up the cases of four
remaining defendants.
The men — Mario Gonzalez,
36, Juan Hernandez, 39, Juan
Valdez Lopez, 50, and Phin Vo
Vorn, 33 — were due in San
Mateo County Superior Court
Wednesday for a preliminary
hearing but instead the local
charges were dismissed in light
of the federal prosecution, said
Assistant District Attorney Al
Five other defendants in the
case settled their case in return
for no prison less than two weeks
after arrest. Luis Farid Gonzalez,
20, Luis Espinoza Mendoza, 28,
Esteban Flores Salazar, 39, Joan
Sicairos, 19, and Mark Richard
Teixeira, 38, pleaded no contest
to felony drug trafficking and
were each immediately sentenced
to a year in jail with credit of 24
days followed by three years
supervised probation.
All nine were arrested Aug. 1 at
Año Nuevo State Park where two
large vans came to meet a panga
boat carrying 5,148 pounds of
marijuana. The Department of
Homeland Security had alerted the
San Mateo County Narcotics Task
Force that marijuana boats might
be landing off the county coast
and agents spotted the vans
entering the beach to meet the
boat landing on the beach. One-
hundred-and-eighty bales of mari-

FRESNO — U.S. Forest Service
officials say they tried to balance
competing interests in a plan
released Wednesday that allows
loggers to remove trees killed in
a massive central California wild-
fire last year, but environmental-
ists called it a travesty and threat-
en to sue.
The highly awaited decision
will allow logging on 52 square
miles of forests blackened in the
Rim Fire, which burned 400
square miles of the Stanislaus
National Forest, Yosemite
National Park’s backcountry and
private timber land.
It came amid a standoff between
environmentalists and supporters
of the timber industry over what
to do with the trees that died in
the fire. The blaze also destroyed
11 homes and cost more than
$125 million to fight.
Susan Skalski, supervisor of
the Stanislaus National Forest,
said that she tried to balance the
need to reduce future fires with
protecting the environment and
wildlife. She took into considera-
tion input from the public, envi-
ronmental groups and the timber
industry and said it was impossi-
ble for her to devise a perfect
recovery plan.
“I did my best to balance all
these important goals, with the
intent of providing a decision
that best serves the public inter-
est,” she said. “I realize that my
decision will not please every
member of the public.”

Judge dismisses human
trafficking, other charges
A judge dismissed human trafficking and other charges
against a 21-year-old Fresno man originally accused of
attacking a woman he prostituted in sev-
eral counties because she was too tired to
perform another act.
Shayne Joshua Lusalah was initially
charged with that crime along with pimp-
ing, assault and vandalism. After a pre-
liminary hearing at which the victim
failed to show up, Judge Marta Diaz
declared there was insufficient evidence
and declined to hold Lusalah to answer.
Lusalah had been held on $250,000
bail since his June arrest at a Bayshore Boulevard motel
after police received a call from the front desk. The alleged
24-year-old woman claimed he had prostituted her in numer-
ous California counties after they met through a mutual
friend and he kept all her money and cellphone. On June 30,
she reported Lusalah wanted her to turn another trick but she
was tired so she called the front desk for help which led to
his beating her and throwing her belongings from the

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco
will become the first city in California
to provide funding to help immigrants
facing deportation obtain an attorney,
officials announced Wednesday.
The city’s $100,000 will go to the
nonprofit Lawyers’ Committee for
Civil Rights, which will use it to pro-
vide free legal representation for
immigrants living in the country ille-
gally, said Supervisor David Chiu, who
created the program. The legal services
could total in the millions of dollars,
he said.
The initiative is an expansion of the
city’s Right to Civil Counsel program
that had focused on tenants facing
evictions, said Chiu, adding that legal
support for children and families flee-
ing escalating violence in Central
America is crucial.
San Francisco has long had a
“Sanctuary City” law, which aims to
provide refuge for illegal immigrants,
he said.
“We needed to do something. In San
Francisco, we are a city that has always
stood up for and known that our immi-
grant families make us successful as a
city and as a country,” said Chiu, the
son of Taiwanese immigrants.
“Ensuring ‘liberty and justice for all’ i s
what this city is all about.”
New York City has a similar pro-
gram, and California Gov. Jerry Brown
and other state officials recently
announced a proposal to provide $3
million to immigration attorneys.
“Bolstering legal services is a criti-
cal next step to continuing support for
this vulnerable population, to ensure
they are treated with compassion and
respect here,” Mayor Ed Lee said in a
statement Wednesday.

passes gun restraining order
SACRAMENTO — Motivated to act
after a deadly rampage near the
University of California, Santa

bill Wednesday that would allow judges
to temporarily take firearms from peo-

harm themselves or others.
The Senate passed AB1014 by
Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-

of two shooting victims watched from a
viewing gallery. The bill still needs to

aging wells and authorizes the state to

Ban on ‘gay panic

SACRAMENTO — Defendants could
not escape murder charges by claiming
they panicked when they discovered
someone was gay or transgender under a
bill headed to Gov. Jerry Brown.
The state Assembly approved
AB2501 on a 50-10 vote Wednesday.
Current law allows murder charges to
be reduced to manslaughter if the
killings happened in a sudden quarrel or
in the heat of passion. AB2501 by
Democratic Assemblywoman Susan
Bonilla of Concord would bar defen-
dants from using their victims’ gender
or sexual orientation to support a so-
called panic defense.
State sets ride-sharing
insurance standards
SACRAMENTO — Drivers providing
services for ride-sharing companies
such as Lyft and Uber would have to
carry a minimum amount of insurance
under a compromise approved by the
state Senate.
Democratic Assemblywoman Susan
Bonilla of Concord says AB2293 will
ensure that drivers buy insurance that
will protect consumers and the public.
Both of the major ride-sharing com-
panies supported her bill after she
agreed to lower the required amount of
excess insurance from $500,000 to
$200,000 when drivers do not have
passengers in their vehicles.

PHOENIX — The accidental shooting
death of a firing-range instructor by a 9-
year-old girl with an Uzi has set off a power-
ful debate over youngsters and guns, with
many people wondering what sort of par-
ents would let a child handle a submachine
Instructor Charles Vacca, 39, was stand-
ing next to the girl Monday at the Last Stop
range in White Hills, Arizona, about 60
miles south of Las Vegas, when she squeezed
the trigger. The recoil wrenched the Uzi
upward, and Vacca was shot in the head.
Prosecutors say they will not file charges
in the case.
Gerry Hills, founder of Arizonans for Gun
Safety, a group seeking to reduce gun vio-
lence, said that it was reckless to let the girl
handle such a powerful weapon and that
tighter regulations regarding children and
guns are needed.
“We have better safety standards for who
gets to ride a roller coaster at an amusement
park,” Hills said. Referring to the girl’s par-
ents, Hills said: “I just don’t see any reason
in the world why you would allow a 9-year-
old to put her hands on an Uzi.”
The identities of the girl and her family
have not been released.
Sam Scarmardo, who operates the outdoor
range in the desert, said Wednesday that the
parents had signed waivers saying they
understood the rules and were standing near-
by, video-recording their daughter, when the
accident happened.
Investigators released 27 seconds of the
footage showing the girl from behind as she
fires at a black-silhouette target. The
footage, which does not show the instructor
actually being shot, helped feed the furor on
social media and beyond.
“I have regret we let this child shoot, and
I have regret that Charlie was killed in the
incident,” Scarmardo said. He said he does-
n’t know what went wrong, pointing out
that Vacca was an Army veteran of Iraq and
Jace Zack, chief deputy for the Mohave
County Attorney’s Office, said the instructor
was probably the most criminally negligent
person involved in the accident for having
allowed the child to hold the gun without
enough training.

JERUSALEM — Both Israel’s
prime minister and Hamas declared
victory Wednesday in the Gaza
war, though their competing
claims left questions over future
terms of their uneasy peace still
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu’s comments, delivered
in a prime-time address on nation-
al television, appeared aimed at
countering critics of the war, with
both hard-liners in his governing
coalition, as well as residents of
rocket-scarred southern Israel,
saying the war was a failure
because it did not halt Hamas’
rocket attacks or oust the group
from power.
Masked Hamas militants carry-
ing heavy weapons gave their own
address upon the rubble of one
destroyed Gaza neighborhood,
though their own major demands
won’t be addressed until indirect
talks with Israel begin again in
Israel and Hamas agreed to an
open-ended truce Tuesday, with
each side settling for an ambigu-
ous interim agreement in
exchange for a period of calm.
Hamas, though badly battered,
remains in control of Gaza with
part of its military arsenal intact.
Israel and Egypt will continue to
control access to blockaded Gaza,
despite Hamas’ long-running
demand that the border closures
imposed in 2007 be lifted.
Hamas is seeking an end to the
Israeli blockade, including the
reopening of Gaza’s sea and air-
port. It also wants Egypt to
reopen its Rafah border crossing,
the territory’s main gateway to the
outside world. Under the restric-
tions, virtually all of Gaza’s 1.8
million people cannot trade or
travel. Only a few thousand are
able to leave the coastal territory
every month.

Pushing west in a new offensive
along Ukraine’s strategic coast-
line, heavily armed Russian-
backed separatist forces captured
new territory Wednesday far from
their previous battles with govern-
ment troops.
The bold offensive along a new
southeastern front raised the
prospect that the separatists are
seeking to create a land link
between Russia and Crimea, which
also would give them control over
the entire Azov Sea.
After a third day of heavy
shelling that sent many residents
fleeing, rebel fighters with dozens
of tanks and armored vehicles
entered Novoazovsk, a resort
town of 40,000 on the Azov Sea,
the mayor told the Associated
Novoazovsk lies along the road
linking Russia to the Ukrainian
port of Mariupol and onto Crimea,
the Black Sea peninsula that
Russia annexed in March.
The separatist attack appears to
have caught government forces off
guard, and they were scrambling
Wednesday to build up defenses.
The offensive also adds to growing
evidence that the rebels receive
Russian support.
Oleg Sidorkin, the mayor of
Novoazovsk, told the AP by tele-
phone that the rebel forces had
rolled into town from positions
near Ukraine’s southernmost bor-
der with Russia.
To travel to this spot through
Ukraine from the main front line
around Donetsk and Luhansk, far
to the north, the rebels would have
had to cross territory controlled by
government troops. The more log-
ical conclusion is that they came
across the nearby Russian border.

AK-47 shooting death in Arizona

Letter to the editor
Arizona (Phoenix) Republic
hree words for President
Barack Obama: Don’t do
i t .
Don’t sign an executive order uni-
laterally creating faux immigration
Advocates, frustrated by a
Congress that through two presiden-
cies has failed to enact reform, are
pressing for big and bold action.
Such action might be satisfying
for a day or two. But it would set
back their cause for years, if not
decades. The next Republican presi-
dent could reverse such an order
immediately. Even the pragmatic
members of Congress would have no
appetite to tackle permanent, com-
prehensive reform.
And it would ensure that nothing,
absolutely nothing, gets done in
Washington, D.C., until the next
president takes office.
Plenty of Democrats, particularly
congressional and gubernatorial can-
didates, are urging the president to
refrain. But the White House is send-
ing out signals that, yes, Obama is
seriously contemplating taking
executive actions, independent of
Congress, that conceivably could
create a legal status for perhaps mil-
lions of undocumented immigrants.
The options reportedly include
broadening his Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals program to
include the parents of children who
came to this country as minors. He
could expand the “parole in place”
program that allows non-citizens to
enter the U.S. for humanitarian rea-
sons. And there are numerous other
means to extend de facto legal status
to individuals both inside the U.S.
now or seeking entry.
Any actions contemplated by the
White House that have the impact of
altering the legal status of large num-
bers of people — figures of 5 mil-
lion or more are being bandied about
— are destined to have profound ram-
ifications beyond the immediate,
explicit goal of legalizing the status
of undocumented immigrants.
Those consequences extend well
beyond the issue of immigration
itself and into genuine constitutional
questions about the limits of presi-
dential authority.
The question of constitutional
authority has been debated at the
margins in regard to many of
President Obama’s executive orders.
Does the U.S. Constitution afford a
president the authority to amend an
act of Congress in as many ways as
Obama has altered the Affordable
Care Act? Maybe. Maybe not.
Acting alone to impart legal status
to millions of people is a constitu-
tional question more serious by
orders of magnitude. The
Constitution explicitly gives
Congress the power “to establish a
uniform Rule of Naturalization.”
Political cynics suggest Obama
may invoke executive authority over
immigration law precisely because it
would provoke a constitutional furor,
and, perhaps, impeachment proceed-
ings — an action that turned politi-
cally sour for Republicans when they
impeached President Bill Clinton.
We devoutly hope the president is
not so foolish.
This way is folly, President. Yes,
Congress’ failure to act is frustrat-
ing. But if Obama takes these actions
on his own, it would constitute a
higher order of failure.

An open letter to TSA
Dear TSA,
Now will you stop trying to convince me and the rest of
the world that all those color-coded airport levels and
arbitrary screener checks do one iota of good? While your
employees and other airport staff were busy ensuring that
evil-minded passengers weren’t trying to sneak aboard
sunscreen tubes above the allowable size and sketchy tod-
dlers aren’t hiding life-threatening contraband in their
stuffed animals, serial airplane stowaway Marilyn
Hartman ended up at a Phoenix
Eagle-eyed workers spotted
the inadvertent celebrity
milling about the baggage
claim area and took her into
custody. What is this arrest
now? The sixth time? The sev-
Since the Transportation
Security Administration and
Department of Homeland
Security and all those all-
important agencies responsi-
ble for turning flight into a
near-miserable chore all seem to think their rules and reg-
ulations are infallible, the fact Hartman is once again in
custody must be unthinkable.
After all, she knows better. She was warned to stay away
from San Francisco International Airport three or four
times after each arrest for breaching security and once in
fact boarding a plane. Then she snuck onto a Southwest
Airlines flight in San Jose and popped up at Los Angeles
International Airport where she was arrested. Another con-
viction. Another warning to stay away. She even gave a
tear-inducing interview about being an American and hav-
ing no plans to misbehave again — at least she left the
original “I have cancer and just wanted to hit up Hawaii”
excuse alone. Less than 24 hours later, back to LAX.
Arrest, conviction, stay-away order from a judge. Notice a
pattern? This woman is nothing if not consistent.
Now she’s in Arizona — first cited for trespassing and
days later arrested after coming back — although it’s a
little sketchy on just how she got there. Common sense
says she flew but I’m sure you and the airport brass are
busy investigating and taking these repeated performanc-
es very seriously. At least that’s what you always say.
The thing is, I’m not peeved at Hartman. Jealous? Sure.
My pocketbook would love to fly free and my inner secret
spy fantasies would like to think I’m sly enough to outwit
the guardians at the gate. I don’t buy Hartman’s claims of
serious mental illness any more than I believe the cancer
story. I think she’s a lady who obviously has some issues
but has enjoyed her taste of notoriety and wants some
She does not deserve sympathy, pity, a crowdsourcing
campaign or a pass on responsibility just because she
appears in her series of eerily similar mug shots to both
be a harmless little old lady and the owner of a single blue
top. Perhaps a stint in the infamous Maricopa County cor-
rectional system will knock more sense into her than her
brief stay in San Mateo County’s Pathways mental health
court from which she hightailed it nearly immediately.
No, TSA, instead of Hartman, I’m annoyed with you. If
you can’t keep one person developing a personal Where’s
Waldo? game from mocking your security plan, how can
any of us trust that you’ll catch the real dangers that we’re
repeatedly warned await passengers on any given flight?
The Hartman situation raises questions that still haven’t
been answered. If instead of a pleasant-looking white
lady, she were a man of a particularly darker complexion
and perhaps wearing culturally different attire, would
Hartman so easily piggyback through screening next to
families? And, while passengers past security no longer
need to flash identification to board a plane, they do need
to hand over a pass which an airline employee scans. How
is Hartman getting a valid boarding pass? Or, is the truth
that the scanning of passes is a farce meant to look like
some sort of official process but in fact doing nothing? If
that’s the case, just stop the charade altogether and save
the paper.
The sad truth is due to the low-level nature of Hartman’s
crimes and her lack of desire to get any help, she will
likely continue her cycle again and again. She’s not going
to change. But TSA, you must. Either figure out a way to
keep Hartman from exploiting system weaknesses and
human folly or stop expecting the rest of us to politely

The New York Times
fghanistan faces ever deepen-
ing security and political
crises. As American troops
withdraw, Taliban military advances
are threatening entire districts, and
government coffers are dwindling.
NATO leaders are scheduled to hold a
summit meeting next week that is
supposed to reaffirm the alliance’s
commitment to keep supporting
Afghanistan’s security forces, which,
like the rest of the government, are
heavily dependent on international
aid. It will be very hard to justify con-
tinued assistance if Afghan politi-
cians are unable to form a government
with a new president in Kabul.
Yet, Afghanistan’s rival presidential
candidates, Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah
Abdullah are putting the country’s sta-
bility at risk in refusing to agree on a
winner two months after the disputed
election to replace President Hamid
Karzai. And the emboldened Taliban is
taking advantage of the political
Although Karzai’s successor was
supposed to have been sworn in on
Monday, the country’s Independent
Election Commission still has not
completed a United Nations-super-
vised audit of 8.1 million disputed
ballots. Abdullah won the first-round
voting in April, but Ghani came out
ahead in a preliminary count after the
final round in June, prompting
Abdullah to accuse Ghani and Karzai
of colluding to rig the vote.
While Ghani and Karzai have
denied the charges, few doubt there
was substantial fraud. On Sunday,
The Times’s Carlotta Gall reported
that interviews with Afghan and
international officials support some
of Abdullah’s most serious claims,
including ballot-box stuffing and a
campaign by government officials
to manipulate the outcome.
The Americans gave the candidates a
way to ease the sting of defeat by bro-
kering a deal that would have the rival
camps create a national unity govern-
ment. Under this plan, which both
candidates accepted, the winner would
become president and the loser, or his
designee, would fill a new post of
chief executive. But the powers and
duties of that new job are also still in
Anew, stable government is also
important to the United States.
The best available solution is for
Abdullah and Ghani to cooperate fully
with the ballot audit, accept the
results (which were never going to be
fraud-free, given the immaturity of the
democratic system) and quickly form a
functioning government that reflects
the country’s diversity. If they man-
age to do that, there might be some
hope that they could, in time, restore
voter trust and put Afghanistan on the
path to a real democracy.

Big movers
By Alex Veiga
Even in a daylong sideways drift,
the Standard & Poor’s 500 index man-
aged to eke out its third record close
in three days.
U.S. stocks ended essentially flat
on Wednesday after spending much of
the day wavering between tiny gains
and losses.
The S&P 500 notched a gain of one-
tenth of a point over the day before,
extending its rise for the week.
Overall trading volume was about
one-third below the recent average,
reflecting an absence of major mar-
ket-moving news and the approach-
ing Labor Day holiday weekend.
It was a sharp contrast to the day
before, when the S&P 500 closed
above 2,000 for the first time.
“Having achieved this 2,000 level,
the market is simply taking a pause,
catching its breath,” said David
Lebovitz, global market strategist at
JPMorgan Chase.
U.S. stock futures pointed to a
mixed opening in premarket trading
Wednesday. The major stock indexes
opened slightly higher, with the S&P
500 index at 2,001 points.
Early on, investors largely had
their eye on company earnings.
Retailers Express and Tiffany & Co.
were among the companies to post
better-than-expected results.
Express’ shares surged 12.7 percent,
adding $1.86 to $16.45., while
Tiffany rose 98 cents to $101.75.
At 10 a.m. Eastern the
Congressional Budget Office offered
a new assessment of the nation’s
economy, projecting it will grow by
just 1.5 percent this year. The fore-
cast was considerably more pes-
simistic than the Obama administra-
tion’s, which predicted the economy
would expand by 2.6 percent.
Stocks declined shortly afterward,
then recovered, only to waver
through small gains and losses
through much of the day.
The S&P 500 rose 0.10 of a point
to 2, 000. 12.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 15.31, or 0.1 percent, to
17, 122. 01. The Nasdaq composite
fell 1.02 points to 4,569.62.
The Dow is 16 points shy of its
own record closing high set July 16.
The Nasdaq is still well below its dot-
com era record.
Major U.S. indexes are riding a
three-week streak of gains and are up
for the year.
Investors have been encouraged in
recent weeks by strong corporate
earnings and data that point to a
strengthening economy after a slug-
gish start to the year. The trend has
helped extend a five-year bull market,
lifting indexes to new records this
It’s likely that trading will contin-
ue to thin further in the next couple of
days as more investors get in vaca-
tion mode for the Labor Day holiday
Before that, however, the market
will get a look at a few more econom-
ic barometers.
On Thursday, the Commerce
Department delivers its latest esti-
mate of how much the U.S. economy
grew in the second quarter.
Economists are looking for 3.9 per-
cent growth after a decline of 2.1 per-
cent in the first quarter.
New figures on personal income
and spending and on how consumers
feel about the economy, are due out
on Friday.

SAN FRANCISCO — Alibaba’s quar-
terly revenue growth is surging again,
a development that should help the
Chinese e-commerce company sell its
shares in what could become the tech-
nology industry’s most lucrative IPO.
The latest evidence of Alibaba’s
financial allure surfaced in a regulatory
update filed Wednesday as the company
prepares to complete its initial public
offering of stock next month.
Alibaba’s latest quarter ending June
30 was highlighted by revenue of
$2.54 billion, a 46 percent increase
from last year based on current
exchange rates for the yuan.
The performance is likely to ease
concerns that cropped up in June when
Alibaba disclosed revenue growth of
39 percent during the quarter ending
March 31, the slowest rate in six
Alibaba Holding Group Ltd. earned
nearly $2 billion in the latest quarter,
including a one-time gain of $1 bil-
lion generated by a reassessment of
the company’s investment portfolio.
If not for that accounting maneuver
and other items unrelated to the com-
pany’s ongoing business, Alibaba said
it still would have earned nearly $1.2
billion. That represented a 60 percent
increase in Alibaba’s adjusted earnings
from the previous year, according to
the documents.

SAN JOSE — A federal judge has
rejected Apple’s attempt to block the
sale of several older Samsung smart-
phones that copied features in the
Wednesday’s rebuff comes nearly
four months after a jury awarded Apple
Inc. $119 million in damages for
Samsung’s infringements on technol-
ogy used in the trend-setting iPhone.
The amount was well below the $2.2
billion in damages that Apple had been
seeking in the latest round of legal
wrangling between the world’s two
leading smartphone makers since the
tussle began four years ago.
Apple wanted U.S. District Judge
Lucy Koh in San Jose to issue an order
that would have prevented future U.S.
sales of nine Samsung phone models
that infringed on the iPhone technolo-
Koh refused, saying Apple hadn’t
adequately proven Samsung’s intellec-
tual theft had hurt its sales or dimin-
ished its reputation for innovation.
She noted that Apple had previously
licensed some of the features that
Samsung infringed upon to the makers
of other smartphones that competed
against the iPhone, too.
Apple, which is based in Cupertino,
California, declined to comment on
Koh’s decision.
Samsung welcomed the ruling in a
statement. “We remain committed to
providing American consumers with a
wide choice of innovative products,”
Samsung said.
In its arguments, the South Korean
electronics maker had argued the dam-
ages awarded to Apple amounted to a
royalty payment for its past and future
infringements on the patents at issue.

Court rules against FedEx in drivers’ labor case
DALLAS — A federal court has ruled that FedEx Corp.
improperly classified about 2,300 drivers in California as
independent contractors instead of employees.
The decision by a three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals on Wednesday covered drivers who worked
for FedEx between 2000 and 2007. Similar lawsuits were filed
in about 40 states before 2009.
Alawyer for the drivers estimated that they could receive at
least $250 million in back pay and damages if the ruling
stands up.
The judges said that under California law, the drivers were
employees because FedEx controlled how they did their work.
They had to wear company uniforms, drive approved trucks,
and follow other company procedures.
FedEx said it will appeal to the full appeals court in San
Francisco. FedEx general counsel Cary Blancett said that
other courts had upheld contract language with “thousands” of
independent contractors.
The Memphis, Tennessee-based company said that since
2011, it has only contracted with incorporated businesses
that treat drivers as their employees. It also said it will shift to
new service agreements in California, Oregon, Washington
and Nevada.
Time Warner Cable says outages largely resolved
NEWYORK — Time Warner Cable said Wednesday that serv-
ice was largely restored after a problem during routine mainte-
nance caused a nationwide outage of its Internet service for
The company said it is still investigating the cause of the
problem, which occurred with its Internet backbone — the
paths that local or regional networks connect to in order to
carry data long distances.
The problem affected all of Time Warner Cable’s markets and
started at 4:30 a.m. Eastern, sparking widespread complaints
on social networks. Service was largely restored by 6 a.m.

Alec Goff was a standout defensive back for El Camino last season and is expected to make
more of an impact on offense this season for the Colts.
By Nathan Mollat
There is little secret what the El Camino
coach Mark Turner wants to do with the
Colts offense: pound the ball on the ground.
The big question is: who will that be?
With the loss of running back Brandon
Gip to graduation, Turner is tasked with find-
ing his replacement. Turner said he has a
number of guys who could fill the role. He’s
just hoping to find that one workhorse
“Everybody knows we’re going to run it
and usually we’re going to run it well. To
have success, we’re going to have to con-
trol the line of scrimmage. Whether it’s one
guy doing it or three guys doing it, we have
to do it,” Turner said. “We have three guys
who are competing [to be a feature back]. …
I think we can do the rotational thing, but I
prefer to know who that (main) guy is, who
is going to take us where we want to go?”
Where the Colts want to go is the Central
Coast Section playoffs. The only way to do
that, however, is to win the Peninsula
Athletic League’s Lake Division champi-
onship. They have been in the mix for the
title the last several years — finishing in a

t seems every

thoughts turn to the
health of high school
athletes — especially
football players. The
subject of proper
hydration and taking
care of one’s body
becomes of upmost
importance for football players who want
to play to the best of their ability.
An athlete’s body is a fine-tuned
machine and like an exotic sports car, if
you don’t carefully monitor the fuel you’re
putting in, it can lead to reduced perform-
ance. In an athlete’s case, the wrong
amount or type of fuel can lead to cramps.

In a report from the Associated Press, a
high school player in Mississippi died
after a game because of a severe loss of
sodium that caused water to build up on his
brain because he sweated so much during
the game.
Obviously, that would be the worst-case
scenario, but it just goes to show how
important it is for athletes to take care of
their bodies.
And preparing your body for the rigors

Quarterback Shane Acton enters his third season as the Half MoonBay starter and finally has
a handle on coach Keith Holden’s double-wing offense.
By Terry Bernal
Heading into the final month of the 2013 sea-
son, Half Moon Bay football was in dire straits.
Through nearly two years under head coach
Keith Holden, the Cougars were winless in
Peninsula Athletic League play, totaling a 0-8
record dating back to 2012. Then an interesting
thing happened. Half Moon Bay won its final
two Ocean Division games of the 2013 season,
starting with a 32-21 upset over playoff bound
Half Moon Bay’s surprise finish had a pro-
found effect on the upcoming 2014 season.
Playing in the upper-tier Bay Division two
years ago, the Cougars’ winless 2012 league
record saw them dropped to the middle-tier
Ocean Division. Until their league wins over
Aragon and Capuchino last year, the Cougars
were on track to drop to the lower-tier Lake
The first two wins of Holden’s varsity head
coaching career, however, preserved the
Cougars’ standing as an Ocean Division team.
Not to mention, the upset brought some much
needed big-win excitement to Half Moon Bay.
“That win, for us, was like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s
why we coach. That’s why we play. This is what
it’s supposed to be like. This is the expectation

SAN FRANCISCO — Soccer joined the
growing legal debate over head injuries
Wednesday after FIFAand some of the sport’s
governing bodies in the United States were
made the target of a lawsuit seeking new safe-
ty rules.
Agroup of soccer parents and players filed
the lawsuit in San Francisco federal court.
Lawyers representing the parents and players
are asking a judge to grant the lawsuit class
action status on behalf of thousands of current
and former soccer players who competed for
teams governed by FIFA and several U.S.-
based soccer organizations.
The NFL, NHLand NCAAhave all faced sim-
ilar lawsuits.
In a proposed legal settlement in another
case, the NCAAlast month said it will tough-
en return-to-play rules for players who receive
head blows. It also agreed to create a $70 mil-
lion fund to pay for thousands of current and
former athletes to undergo testing to deter-
mine whether they suffered brain trauma.
Seattle-based lawyer Steve Berman helped
negotiate the NCAAsettlement and also repre-
sents the soccer parents and players who filed
the lawsuit Wednesday. The soccer lawsuit
doesn’t demand monetary damages, but it is
demanding that the soccer governing bodies
alter safety rules including limiting headers
for players 17 years old and younger.
“We believe it is imperative we force these
organizations to put a stop to hazardous prac-
tices that put players at unnecessary risk,”
Berman said.
The lawsuit also wants FIFA to allow for
temporary medical substitutions of players
that don’t count toward the maximum three
replacements allowed in most FIFA-spon-
sored matches.
Switzerland-based FIFAcouldn’t be reached
for comment late Wednesday.
The lawsuit alleges that nearly 50,000 high
school soccer players suffered concussions in

HOUSTON — Sam Fuld hit a tiebreaking,
two-run homer in the ninth inning to give
the Oakland Athletics a 5-4 win over the
Houston Astros on Wednesday night.
The A’s trailed by one entering the ninth
before Eric Sogard’s RBI single, and Fuld’s
two-out shot off Chad Qualls (1-4) landed in
the seats in right field to put Oakland up 5-3.
Fuld, the former Stanford star, finished three
hits, including a double.
Oakland began the night one game behind
the Los Angeles Angels for the AL West lead.
The A’s have won five of eight following a five-
game losing streak.
Dan Otero (8-1) pitched 1 1/3 innings for
the win. Eric O’Flaherty allowed a solo
homer to Chris Carter with two outs in the
ninth before retiring Dexter Fowler for his
first save since May 2013.
Houston trailed 2-1 in the seventh after Coco
Crisp’s solo home run in the top of the inning,
then tied it on Robbie
Grossman’s RBI single.
Altuve’s big league-lead-
ing 181st hit put Houston
on top 3-2. The groundball
single rolled just out of
reach of a diving Alberto
Callaspo and into shallow
right field. Altuve also
swiped two bases, giving
him an AL-high 49 steals.
Jonny Gomes’ sacrifice fly put Oakland
ahead1-0 in the sixth.
Oakland starter Drew Pomeranz, recalled from
Triple-ASacramento before the game, allowed
one run — none earned — and three hits in 5
1/3 innings in his first major league appearance
since June 16. He struck out seven.
Houston’s Brad Peacock lasted 5 1/3 innings,
yielding one run, four hits and five walks.
Carter has 33 homers this season, has home-
red in three straight games and has hit 20 home
runs since July 1.
Notes: Manager Bob Melvin said he expects
shortstop Jed Lowrie (broken right index fin-
ger) to be ready for an injury rehabilitation
assignment this weekend if there are no issues
the next two days. Infielder Nick Punto (ham-
string) is getting better but is behind Lowrie
because he still isn’t able to run at full speed.
Triple-A Rivercats rally late too
A’s Triple-A affiliate Sacramento rallied for
six runs in the eighth to triumph 8-5 in
Nashville. The Rivercats sent 11 batters to the
plate in the inning. Shane Peterson had the
clutch hit to drive home the go-ahead run.
Former Stanford standout Colin Walsh paced
all Sacramento hitters with a 3-for-5 night. Joe
Savery earned the win in relief to improve to 7-1.
Jeremy McBryde battled to earn his 16th save.
With the win, Sacramento improves to 78-61
to maintain a one-game lead over second-place
Reno, the D-Backs affiliate, with five games
remaining in the regular season — a head-to-
head five-game series between the two teams.
Amazing A’s win it in 9th
By Janie McCauley
SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey hit a
game-ending two-run homer for his third clout
in two nights, sending the San Francisco
Giants past the Colorado Rockies 4-2 on
Wednesday night for Bruce Bochy’s 1,600th
managerial victory.
Posey sent an 0-1 pitch from Juan Nicasio
(5-6) just inside the left-field foul pole for his
18th homer of the year and second career
walkoff homer. He also had one on May 3,
2013, against the Dodgers.
Santiago Casilla (2-3), who was ill Tuesday,
plunked leadoff hitter Drew Stubbs in the back
to start the ninth. Justin Morneau then dou-
bled him home to tie the game at 2. Casilla got
a key double play to get out of the inning.
Tim Hudson’s strong eight-inning, eight-
strikeout outing was wasted.
Posey followed his two-home run perform-
ance a night earlier with a go-ahead single in
the seventh inning, then an even bigger hit.
He has hit safely in 12 of his past 13 games.
After Madison Bumgarner’s one-hit gem in
a 3-0 win Tuesday, Hudson
had his own fine outing. He
didn’t allow a hit until
Corey Dickerson led off the
fifth with a splash home
run into McCovey Cove.
It marked the 100th
homer into the bay in the
15th-year ballpark’s histo-
ry and 34th by a visiting
team. Carlos Gonzalez hit
the Rockies’ other two.
Hudson reached the 2,000-strikeout mark
and won consecutive starts for the first time in
nearly three months, since May 27 and June 1.
Colorado’s Franklin Morales saw his win-
less stretch reach eight starts since a July 8
victory against San Diego.
All of Morales’ wins this season have come
against the NL West, and he certainly pitched
well enough to keep his team in the game. The
left-hander allowed seven hits and one run in
seven innings, struck out six and walked one.
Gregor Blanco’s infield single put San
Francisco ahead in the bottom of the fourth
before Dickerson tied it the next inning with
his 20th home run.
Hudson joined CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett
and Bartolo Colon as the active pitchers with
2,000 or more strikeouts. Bochy became the
19th manager with 1,600 wins.
In 14 career starts against Colorado, Hudson
is 6-2 with a 5.16 ERA.
Notes: Hector Sanchez is expected to miss
the remainder of the season while recovering
from a second concussion this year.
First baseman Brandon Belt still must rest for
two more weeks with a concussion. He was away
from the ballpark Wednesday after his wife went
into labor. Shortstop Brandon Crawford didn’t
start to give him a break from what manager
Bruce Bochy called “general soreness.” Crawford
struck out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.
Rockies right-hander Jordan Lyles (6-1,
4.05) pitches the series finale against Giants
right-hander Yusmeiro Petit (3-3, 3.59) starts
in place of Tim Lincecum, who was moved to
the bullpen after his recent struggles. Petit has
retired 38 straight batters over his past seven
appearances, six in relief. He is seven shy of
the single-season record set by Mark Buehrle
with the White Sox from July 18-28, 2009.

SANTACLARA — Three straight seasons
of being so close have the 49ers yearning
for a Super Bowl championship they
believe is right within reach. So now, no
more near misses.
Especially after watching the rival
Seahawks win it all last season following
San Francisco’s six-point loss at Seattle in
the NFC championship
game that could have
gone either way.
“It’s a new year, this is
a rebirth,” coach Jim
Harbaugh said. “One of
the things, we’re reborn
this year into some very
high expectations. We
welcome that. My young
son, Jack, was born and
put some very high expectations on him.
Happy to report that he’s exceeding them.
And we’d like to do the same.”
In the inaugural season at new Levi’s
Stadium, San Francisco is striving to estab-
lish a home-field advantage much like it had
during a memorable four-decade run at
Candlestick Park.
Players say they won’t settle for anything
less than a Super Bowl ring. The 49ers also
are bracing for word on whether star line-
backer Aldon Smith will be suspended by
the NFL for his legal issues.
“No. 1, looking back on it you’re always
happy to be in a situation to have a chance
to compete for a Super Bowl,” defensive
lineman Justin Smith said. “The mindset is,
‘We’re there.’ It’s not talking about ‘Let’s
get in the playoffs’ or ‘hopefully try to get
to the NFC championship game or the Super
Bowl.’ Our goal is to get to the Super Bowl
and win it. You can actually say it, like
we’ve been saying it the last couple years,
with a straight face. It’s a good feeling to be
in that situation.”
Here are some things to watch for with the
Levi’s Stadium inaugural season
The 49ers certainly hope their preseason
debut at Levi’s is a far cry from how they
will defend their home field in the first year
at their sparkling new digs.
It was Denver 34, San Francisco 0, which
sent fans for the exits midway through the
third quarter Aug. 17. They bounced back to
beat San Diego 21-7 last Sunday.
Their first chance in the regular season
comes in prime time on Sept. 14 against the
The stadium is being sodded for a third
time in four months in an effort to find the
right grass and soil combination that will
stay rooted for the long haul. The initial
grass put down in April failed to hold and
was re-sodded for last Sunday’s game
against the Chargers.
Big-money Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick landed that big-money
new contract he wanted
during the offseason, and
now it’s time to back it
In June, the fourth-year
QB received a $126 mil-
lion, six-year extension
through the 2020 season.
The deal includes $61
million in guaranteed
Kaepernick insists it’s
not all about the money, and that he has
come a long way in “our players having
confidence in me.”
Skinny playbook
Without offering specifics, San Francisco
has simplified its typically thick offensive
playbook. Whether that will contribute to
more efficiency getting the play called in
the huddle in time remains to be seen; it was
an issue for the offense the past two sea-

After trio of near misses, 49ers chase Super Bowl
By Josh Dubow
OAKLAND — The time for excuses for the
Oakland Raiders is over.
After spending two years tearing apart a
struggling team beset by bad draft picks and
out-of-whack contracts, general manager
Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen
finally got the chance to build the type of
team they wanted since
coming aboard before the
2012 season.
Two years of bargain-
basement shopping led
to back-to-back four-win
seasons that left the fan
base and owner Mark
Davis frustrated.
McKenzie was able to
open the wallet this off-
season, committing to more than $100 mil-
lion worth of contracts for new players in
trades and free agency in hopes of ending an
11-year playoff drought.
“What’s been done here in the past is
unacceptable and we need to begin to win
some football games,” Allen said. “We’re
all in on that philosophy and that’s kind of
our attitude.”
The Raiders used most of that money this
offseason on short-term contracts for aging
players with a history of success in the
NFL, guys with questions about whether
they would still be able to reach those lev-
els at advanced ages.
There has been a notable impact on the
team’s mindset already after adding players
such as Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley,
Maurice Jones-Drew and James Jones.
“This year we have that sense of urgency
here,” said fullback Marcel Reece, one of
three Raiders position players who have
been with the franchise since 2008.
“There’s more veteran leadership on both
sides of the ball. It’s encouraging to have a
group of guys around you that have the same
sense of urgency. ”
Whether that translates to more success
on the field will depend heavily on the per-
formance of quarterback Matt Schaub, slated
to be Oakland’s 18th starting quarterback
since 2003. Schaub was run out of Houston
after last season when he set an NFL record
by having an interception returned for a
touchdown in four straight games.
Despite a rocky preseason and a sore
throwing elbow, the Raiders believe Schaub
can solidify the revolving door at quarter-
back and once again be the player who post-
ed five straight seasons with a passer rating
above 90.
“You can’t make it anywhere in this game
without having confidence through the
roof,” Schaub said. “You’re going to go
through ups and downs as a player. It’s how
you bounce back from it.”
Here are some things to watch with the
Raiders this season:
Shiny new Carr
Even before Schaub took his first snap in
Oakland, the Raiders drafted his replace-
ment when they picked
Derek Carr out of Fresno
State. Carr has a stronger
arm and is a better athlete
than Schaub. He could
take over the job sooner
than expected if Schaub
struggles to start the sea-
son or is hampered by a
sore throwing elbow that
forced him to miss some
practice time. Carr still
must show he can stand in against NFL pass
rushers and be as effective operating from
under center as he was in the shotgun at
Fresno State.
Revolving corner
For the third straight offseason, the
Raiders brought in a pair of new starting
cornerbacks. Oakland hopes Tarell Brown
and Carlos Rogers fare better than Shawntae
Spencer and Ron Bartell in 2012, and Mike
Jenkins and Tracy Porter last season.
Rogers was originally slated to be the nick-
el cornerback but moved into a starting role
with last year’s top pick DJ Hayden still
sidelined by a stress fracture in his right
Run to daylight
Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden are
coming off rough seasons when both aver-
aged less than 3.5 yards per carry. The two
former 1,000-yard backs showed signs of
resurgence this summer as both were in
good health and tiptop shape. With a big
offensive line suited to a power running
game, Jones-Drew and McFadden are set up
to have strong seasons that could take pres-
sure off the passing game.
Mighty Mack
No. 5 overall pick Khalil Mack gives the
Raiders a potential
impact pass rusher they
have lacked in recent sea-
sons. Mack is still learn-
ing the pro game but has
shown the strength and
athleticism to get to the
quarterback. With the
additions of Tuck,
Woodley and Antonio
Smith on the defensive
line, the Raiders might
not need to rely as heavily on blitzes last
year, which should help shore up a suspect

here,’” Holden said.
Entering his third year as head coach, Holden
is making the most of a 32-player roster. Low
numbers is a common theme for Half Moon
Bay, but not a death knell by any stretch. In
2011, when Holden served as an assistant coach
during former head coach Matt Ballard’s final
year at Half Moon Bay, the team won the Ocean
Division title with just 35 players on roster.
And what’s more, the Cougars’ lack of mar-
quee talent this season also has a track record of
success. The team boasts one returning All-
League player in senior tight end James
Cartwright. After his dual-threat ability as a
solid blocker and a sturdy target for third-year
quarterback Shane Acton, there aren’t any previ-
ous accolades to highlight in the Cougars’ cur-
rent mix.
“We have some good players,” Holden said.
“Unfortunately those players have to be on the
field a lot.”
But Holden is quick to point out it doesn’t take
marquee talent to win. Flashing back to 2010
when the Cougars were led by running back
Dominic Sena, the senior produced one of the
best single seasons in school history. Sena ran
for 2,159 yards with 35 touchdowns. Yet it was-
n’t until the year after he departed in which Half
Moon Bay notched its last division crown.
“[Sena] was very good and we scored a ton of
points. But the year after he left is the year we
won the championship. And I think that was
just a bunch of scrappy kids who wanted to do
really well,” Holden said. “I’ve been preaching
to our kids, ‘I don’t want you to achieve where
you should be. I want you to overachieve.’
That’s the standard that’s been here for years.
Obviously the last few years we’ve gotten away
from that.”
A former offensive coordinator, Holden is
looking for his double wing offense to come to
fruition this season. He installed the new play-
book when he took over as head coach three
years ago. In that time, he has seen Acton grow
into the headstrong quarterback needed to navi-
gate the physical demands of such an offense.
Since being promoted to the varsity squad as
a 155-pound sophomore, Acton has filled out a
sturdy 6-foot, 185-pound frame while relying
on good footwork and athleticism to create a
quick-strike tempo with his accurate throwing
“We put this offense in when he was a sopho-
more. So between then and now, the way that we
run it is actually so much better,” Holden said.
“The [double wing] is really a process and takes
some time to get the timing down. And really,
the tough part is to get your quarterback to read
it well all the time.”
The offense also requires at least one running
back-like bull. Fullback Toby Leonardos cer-
tainly fits the bill. Holden describes the senior
as thick and strong. And he is one of a trio
returning players — along with juniors Matt
Spigelman and Anthony Demartini — who fig-
ure to get a vast majority of reps out of the back-
field this season.
The line is a good mix of proven experience
and relative youth, with returning junior center
Justin Terra and 5-6, 220-pound senior guard
Marcos Sarabia — a former PAL champion
wrestler — balancing out a tandem of newcom-
ers in tackles Sean Baird and Miguel Camacho.
And while all four will be relied upon for two-
way detail as defensive linemen, the entire
department is in good hands with longtime line
coach Don Diaz, who has spanned four decades
of Half Moon Bay football and earned the CCS
Honor Coach Award last season.
The defense, as a whole, is also in good hands
this year with the addition of veteran defensive
coordinator Brian Von Almen, who left
Burlingame to return to Half Moon Bay, where
he served as head coach in the early 1990s.
Highlighting Von Almen’s 4-4 defense is
defensive back Brandon Inglis, the team’s best
open-field tackler, according to Holden; while
newcomer Jim Alves brings depth to the line-
backing corps.
“We have a bunch of kids who are pretty good
football players, pretty dedicated, pretty hard-
nosed,” Holden said. “But no one single per-

“We’ve been close the last couple years,”
Turner said. “We’re senior heavy. Those
guys have had some taste of success and
have also had the taste of being close. These
guys are hungry. ”
Until a main running back emerges, how-
ever, Turner likes the options he has in the
offensive backfield. Apair of seniors, Alex
Goff and DJ Evangelista, figure to see some
carries this season, but those two are criti-
cal to the El Camino defense — Goff at safe-
ty and Evangelista at linebacker.
“(Goff) is one of our, overall, best players
and will be a major player as a running
back,” Turner said. “(Evangelista) is a pret-
ty solid player for us.”
As such, Turner is hoping junior J.P.
Nacion can emerge as the Colts’ every-down
“He’ll probably play a pretty good role
for us,” Turner said. “He’s still picking up
(our offense). He would be fresher to run the
ball, because of a lack of a defensive posi-
On top of the running back situation,
Turner will also be breaking in a new quar-
terback. Turner said there is a two-man bat-
tle at the position, but that senior Andrew
Pierotti has the inside track. Pierotti served
as the Colts’ backup last season, but didn’t
see any playing time at the spot.
“There’s been little struggles here and
there,” Turner admitted. “But he understands
things. He’s a competitor. He’ll be OK. … If
we can perform [at quarterback] and make a
few plays there, we’ll be fine.”
Pierotti’s receiving targets will be Andres
Abarca, a two-way starter last season, and
Armin Webb.
“[Webb] is a good all-around athlete,”
Turner said. “He should play a significant
role, contributing both ways, but is more of
an offensive guy. ”
The Colts’ strength on offensive should
be the offensive line, which features two
players who have received all-league honors
over the last couple of years. Guards Malik
DeMartha and Darnel Salcedo are both sen-
iors and three-year starters. DeMartha was
an all-league selection last season, while
Salcedo earned that accolade the previous
year as a sophomore.
Anchoring the line will be senior Gabe
DeOliveria, who came on strong last sea-
son, starting the last seven games in 2013.
Like a lot of teams in the PAL, El
Camino’s key players will be playing both
offense and defense, so expect some of the
same guys on offense to be counted on to
lead the defense as well.
Shukry Lama, made a name for himself on
defense last season, earning all-league hon-
ors as a defensive lineman. This year, he is
taking a couple steps back and lining up as
a linebacker.
“He’s always wanted to play linebacker.
He’s definitely a good player,” Turner said.
“When it comes to physical part of the
game, that’s when he stands out.”

NEW YORK — Maria Sharapova’s serve
and her groundstrokes were abandoning her.
What she had was her conditioning.
The five-time major champion rallied from a
set down to beat 95th-ranked Alexandra
Dulgheru 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of
the U.S. Open on Wednesday. Sharapova over-
came nine double-faults and 46 unforced errors
to improve her record in three-set matches this
year to 17-6.
Dulgheru had played just twice since mid-
July, and she was dragging as the match
approached two hours late in the second set.
On a hot, windy day, with the shadows shift-
ing as late afternoon turned to evening, the
fifth-seeded Sharapova avoided another upset
on the women’s side. Fourth-seeded
Agnieszka Radwanska and 21st-seeded Sloane
Stephens lost earlier.
The Russian star won her second French
Open title in June but hasn’t looked all that
sharp since. Still, she hasn’t lost in the sec-
ond round at the U.S. Open since her Flushing
Meadows debut in 2003.
Dulgheru has never been past the third round
at a Grand Slam tournament and fell to 3-14
against top-10 opponents. The Romanian
was ranked as high as 26th in 2011, but later
missed a year because of right knee surgery.
Stephens, once a sure bet to stick around for
a while at Grand Slam tournaments, suddenly
can’t even win there.
The 21-year-old American stumbled to her
earliest loss at the U.S. Open, upset by 96th-
ranked Johanna Larsson.
“Everyone goes through times like this,”
Stephens said. “I’m not the first person and
won’t be the last.”
Down a set and a break, Larsson rallied to
win 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 to match her best perform-
ance at a major tournament. The 26-year-old
Swede had been 0-4 at Flushing Meadows
before this year.
When the match ended with her 63rd
unforced error, Stephens was in such a hurry to
leave Arthur Ashe Stadium that she briskly
walked around the net to Larsson’s side of the
court for the handshake.
Larsson has now reached the third round at a
major tournament twice this year after break-
ing through at the French Open.

NFL suspends Browns star
WR Gordon for 2014 season
CLEVELAND — Josh Gordon’s wait is over,
and so is his 2014 season. Now the star wide
receiver’s career is in peril.
The Browns learned Wednesday that
Gordon’s indefinite suspension by the NFLhas
been upheld and he will miss at least 16 games
for another violation of the league’s substance
abuse policy.
The league announced that arbitrator Harold
Henderson supported Gordon’s yearlong sus-
pension for marijuana use. The Pro Bowler,
who was subject to more frequent testing, will
begin serving his suspension immediately
and the league said in its statement that his
“eligibility for reinstatement will be deter-
mined following the 2014 season.”

dehydrated. By the time that first
cramp is formed, (drinking fluids)
is not going to do much.”
Rossi pointed out it doesn’t
have to just be water either. She
agrees that sports drinks can help
as well, even Pedialyte — the
electrolyte solution parents use
for babies who get dehydrated.
But it goes even beyond liquids.
Rossi realizes kids may think
drinking water all day long can be
tiresome, so she tries to get them
to eat foods that have a high water
content as well as high potassium
“The issue is what you do at
home, to make sure you’re still
hydrating at home,” Rossi said. “I
tell them just don’t get the water.
Get the cantaloupe and bananas
and leafy green vegetables. They
have a lot of potassium.”
Rossi admitted you can’t stop
all the effects of dehydration. The
amount of time playing, the
weather, a player’s condition and
predisposition to cramps are all
“There are those who are just
crampers,” Rossi said.
Ultimately, it is up to the ath-
letes to utilize the education they
receive from their coaches and
“Our coaches (at Serra) are
great. [The players] get the lec-
ture, ‘You have to eat (properly),
you have to sleep (properly).’ …
It takes a while for kids to learn,”
Rossi said. “It’s an educational
process for the coaches. I would
say most of the kids who are on
varsity, they get it.”
There is a correction in the
Capuchino football story that
appeared in the Aug. 27 issue of
the Daily Journal (“Mustangs
start over”). New coach Ben
White spent eight years as South
City’s varsity coach. He took
over for Mike Tenorowicz. White
led the Warriors to two berths in
the Central Coast Section play-
offs and helped them move into
the Bay Division during his time
with the program.

LOS ANGELES — Southern California
cornerback Josh Shaw confessed that he lied
to school officials about how he sprained
his ankles last weekend, retracting his story
about jumping off a balcony to save his
drowning nephew.
The school swiftly suspended him
Wednesday from all team activities and
acknowledged his heroic tale was “a com-
plete fabrication.”
The tale began to unravel soon after the
team captain was lauded for his heroics in a
story on the team's website Monday. In the
account, Shaw described how he instinc-
tively jumped from a balcony, with no one
around, to rescue his 7-year-old nephew in a
pool in his hometown of Palmdale,
California. The school said a day later
callers questioned the story, and began vet-
ting it.
But the biggest question remains unan-
swered: What was he doing, and how did he
injure his ankles?
“We are extremely disappointed in Josh,”
USC coach Steve Sarkisian said. “He let us
all down. As I have said, nothing in his
background led us to doubt him when he told
us of his injuries, nor did anything after our
initial vetting of his story. ”
The Los Angeles Police Department has
confirmed that a man named Joshua Shaw
was mentioned — but not as a suspect — in
a report involving a break-in at a downtown
apartment building Saturday night. The
department has not made the report public.
Shaw is a fifth-year senior, a captain and a
key starter in USC’s defensive secondary.
He is widely considered a solid teammate
and an important leader for the 15th-ranked
Trojans, who begin their first season under
Sarkisian at the Coliseum on Saturday
against Fresno State.
Shaw issued a short statement through
criminal defense attorney Donald Etra on
Wednesday after being suspended.
“On Saturday, August 23, 2014, I injured
myself in a fall,” Shaw said. “I made up a
story about this fall that was untrue. I was
wrong not to tell the truth. I apologize to
USC for this action on my part. My USC
coaches, the USC athletic department and
especially Coach Sarkisian have all been
supportive of me during my college career
and for that, I am very grateful.”
Etra didn’t respond to a request for further
details about the cause of Shaw’s injuries.
Shaw didn’t attend practice Wednesday,
missing his second straight day of work-
outs. Although he is barred from team activ-
ities, his injuries also would keep him out
of workouts for at least a few weeks.

LONG BEACH — Rick Blankenship
was tired of an insatiable lawn he
couldn’t keep green, no matter how he
watered it, so he decided to tear it out.
Three years later, he brims with pride
at his new front yard in Long Beach,
California, carpeted with natural sage-
and emerald green-colored ground cov-
ers and shaded by flowering magnolia
and peppermint willow trees.
“It just sounded like a great way to
save money and at the same time, kind
of beautify my landscape,” said the 51-
year-old medical sales director.
As California faces an historic
drought, more residents are following
in Blankenship’s footsteps and tear-
ing out thirsty lawns to cut down on
water use. Water agencies across the
state have been encouraging the
change by offering thousands of dol-
lars in rebates to help homeowners
make the switch to a drought-friendly
landscape with better odds of surviv-
ing dry spells common to the local cli-
The Metropolitan Water District of
Southern California, which covers 19
million people, received requests to
remove 2.5 million square feet in resi-
dential lawns in July, up from 99,000
in January, said Bill McDonnell, the
consortium’s water efficiency manag-
The Municipal Water District of
Orange County is taking in 20 to 30
applications a day, up from just five a
week before Gov. Jerry Brown declared
a drought emergency earlier this year.
“We are just buried right now,” said Joe
Berg, the agency’s water efficiency
programs manager.
The trend isn’t just catching on in
Southern California. The Santa Clara
Valley Water District, which serves
Silicon Valley, received more than
1,700 requests for applications for turf
removal rebates during the first six
months of the year, a five-fold increase
from the same period in 2013, said
Marty Grimes, a district spokesman.
Water officials hope the shift is more
than a fad and marks the beginning of
a transformation in the way residents
view neighborhood landscapes.
Most lawns in Southern California
don’t bear greenery other than grass
but water agency officials say the
interest in turf removal programs —
fueled in part by an increase in rebate
rates — is encouraging.
“Twenty years from now, the ideal
thing is, you take your dog for a walk
in a neighborhood and the guy who has
grass on his yard would be the abnor-
mal yard,” McDonnell said, adding
more than 21 million square feet of turf
have been removed in Metropolitan’s
six-county service area since the
incentives began.
For many years, water agencies
focused on improving the efficiency of
Californians tear out lawns to cope with drought
As more Californians tear out their lawns and plant drought-friendly
gardens, many homeowners wonder how the effort will pencil out.
In some areas,at least half of the daily water use is for lawns and outdoor
landscaping, according to the State Water Resources Control Board.
Between 1998 and 2010,homes used an average of 2.7 million acre-feet
of water indoors and 3 million acre-feet outdoors, together accounting
for nearly 13 percent of the state’s water use, state figures show. An acre
foot is nearly 326,000 gallons, or enough to cover a football field with a
foot of water.
Homeowners who tear out their lawns will see savings in their water
bills,though how much depends on what they plant instead.Long Beach,
which began offering rebates in 2010 to residents who tear out their
lawns, estimates that homes in its turf removal program cut down their
water use by a fifth.
Water agencies are paying homeowners a rebate for tearing out grass
and replacing it with drought-friendly plants,or in some cases,synthetic
turf.Rebates started out several years ago at $1 a square foot of grass but
in some cities have since risen as high as $3.50 a square foot.
In Southern California,more than 21 million square feet of turf have been
removed since the incentives began, according to the region’s
Metropolitan Water District.
In Long Beach, some residents have been making similar changes to
their yards without seeking the rebates as the landscapes become more
common, said Matthew Lyons, director of planning and conservation
for the city’s water department.

930 El Camino Real
San Carlos
By Katherine Roth
When Ann and Glen Gage downsized from
their expansive home and garden in
Switzerland to a San Francisco town house,
one of the things they missed most was the
koi pond they’d built and tended for years. It
was brimming with elegant plants, fish and
its own ecosystem.
So they built not one but two new ponds,
this time city-style: one for their balcony
overlooking San Francisco and the other
for their leafy entryway.
“If you have limited space or want an
interesting water feature ... patio or con-
tainer ponds are an easy option, and the
only limits are your creativity,” said Marc
Hachadourian, Director of the Nolan
Greenhouses for Living Collections at the
New York Botanical Garden.
The Gages assembled their container
ponds using large planters, which they
made water-tight by caulking any drainage
holes. Then they added gravel and a few
larger rocks, and filled the container with
water. They added an electric a bubbler and
filter, “to make the fish happy.” Next came a
few floating aquatic plants, which they har-
vested from a pond in the area, and finally a
variety of “rescue fish” from a pet store.
“We have a really small space and Ann
said, wouldn’t it be cool to have a pond
here? It couldn’t have been easier,” said
Glen Gage. “It’s way less work to maintain
than a big aquarium — no cleaning the tank
or syphoning out the dirty water — and
there’s a relaxing zen quality to the gently
bubbling water and swimming fish.”
Maintenance involves only refilling the
container to replace water lost to evapora-
tion. Although some people put mosquito-
killing tablets in the water, experts say a
few small fish are sufficient to take care of
insect larvae.
“You can go crazy with really fancy fish,
Even a small patio can have a fish
Unlike koi,which grow large and need plenty of oxygen and moving water to thrive,goldfish
and some other smaller fish are hardier and better suited to patio ponds.

indoor plumbing, where installing a
low-flush toilet, for example, would
have guaranteed results. Not so with
gardening, which relies on residents to
turn off the sprinklers or hose to save
water, Berg said.
Now, agencies are turning their
attention to outdoor uses, which make
up the majority of water consumption
in some residential areas, according to
the State Water Resources Control
Board. Most are encouraging the use of
drought-friendly plants, though some
also allow synthetic turf.
Residents who remove their lawns
not only weed out mowing and fertiliz-
ing costs but also save on water. In
Long Beach, which began its turf
replacement program four years ago,
residents have cut their water bills by
about 20 percent, said Matthew Lyons,
director of planning and conservation
for the city’s water department.
Ripping out a 1,000-square-foot
front lawn in Long Beach saves about
21,000 gallons of water a year, and
amounts to roughly $86 in annual sav-
ings on homeowners’ water and sewage
bills, he said.
The city, which requires participants
to cover at least 65 percent of the land-
scape with plantings, has funded more
than 1,300 projects to date.
For years, conservation advocates
have urged residents to plant drought-
friendly landscapes but previously saw
few takers. Many homeowners thought
the gardens would be dry, dusty and
filled with prickly cactus until they
saw neighbors creating landscapes
with lush evergreens and California
lilacs, said Lili Singer, director of spe-
cial projects and adult education at the
Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild
Flowers and Native Plants.
Until recently, they also had little
financial incentive to make the switch.
While the rebate — which runs from
$2 to $3.50 a square foot in Southern
California — helps cover the cost of
replacing lawns, some homeowners
said they spent far more to hire land-
scape designers and carve out decks,
walkways and sitting areas to create a
new outdoor space. And while a garden
may need less maintenance than a
lawn, there’s still weeding and pruning
to be done.
For some families, a grassy lawn
serves a purpose by giving young
children a safe place to play, Berg said.
Some residents have resorted to
spray painting their lawns to keep up
appearances until they can overhaul
the landscape or the drought eases. The
vegetable-based dye lasts only a few
months, but lets them stop watering.
“This is a much more cost-effective
option for now,” said Mara Tapia, who
paid $350 to paint the parched front
yard of her suburban Los Angeles home
until she can save enough money for
artificial turf.
But for those who are tired of seem-
ingly futile efforts to prevent grass
from browning under the summer sun,
tearing out a lawn has its pluses.
Building a circle of trees around his
home gave Blankenship some privacy
from his busy street in Long Beach —
except for the colorful butterflies and
hummingbirds now apt to visit.
“You’re not going to get butterflies
with a lawn,” Blankenship said,
adding that they fluttered through the
front yard on the first day he planted.
“So it’s kind of a win-win situation.”
Continued from page 24
but our local pet store is super nice
and they just let us reach in for feeder
fish and choose some with pretty
markings that make them look
unique. It’s like going to the pound.
You feel like you’ve done something
really good. They’re basically just
goldfish and are pretty hardy,” Gage
Although the patio ponds can look
and feel like miniature koi ponds, koi
experts strongly suggest goldfish as
the better choice.
Unlike koi, which grow large and
need plenty of oxygen and moving
water to thrive, goldfish and some
other smaller fish are hardier and bet-
ter suited to patio ponds.
“Putting a koi in a little container
pond would be like trying to raise a
German Shepherd in a box,” said Don
Chandler, chairman of Koi USA,
based in Costa Mesa, California. “The
smallest possible koi pond would be a
600- or 800-gallon pond. That’s more
than most people are ready for on
their patio.”
The International Water Garden
Society is a good resource when decid-
ing on varieties of aquatic plants.
Hachadourian recommends miniature
water lilies like dauben, which has a
light blue flower and tolerates shadier
conditions. Plants like water lettuce
and water hyacinth float on the sur-
face, control algae and help filter the
water. Aquatic grasses, irises and tar-
row are also good choices, he said.
When deciding where to put a patio
pond, first consider how much weight
your floor or terrace can handle. Even
the lightest container is heavy when
filled with water, which weighs just
over 8 pounds per gallon. “It’s not
what you’d want on a rickety porch,”
Hachadourian said.
Ponds also need a good amount of
light and work best outdoors.
Indoors, they would work in a green-
house-type area; otherwise they gen-
erally require additional lighting.
Continued from page 25
Bees aren’t the only pollinators you can attract
The dramatic loss of honeybees to changing land use, virus-
es and pesticides is alarming, and they are irreplaceable as
pollinators. But you can somewhat offset their loss by attract-
ing alternative pollinators, such as beetles, butterflies and
moths, dragonflies, feral bees, wasps and flower flies.
Attracting these beneficial insects requires a long-term land-
scaping commitment, however. They need a wide variety of
forage plants along with protected nesting sites to thrive.
“The plant community and the bee community are intimate-
ly related,” said David Gordon, an associate professor of ento-
mology at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas.

W-Trans, the city’s consultant on the
Ralston Avenue plan. On other seg-
ments of the road, a path would require
removing parking spaces, which ulti-
mately was not preferred by the com-
munity, according to the plan.
Instead, the plan suggests a detour
onto Masonic Way between the
Caltrain station and western segments
of Ralston Avenue. Improvements
could include creating dedicated bike
paths in certain areas, enhanced direc-
tive signs and bicycle detectors that
would trigger traffic signals, according
to the plan.
Councilman Eric Reed said the city
had vast interests to balance.
Accounting for an increasing popula-
tion will likely change over time, he
“We’re trying as economically as
possible to optimize the road for
pedestrians, bicyclists and cars and
given the configurations and trying to
make all three of those happy, as well
as residents and businesses nearby, ”
Reed said. “I anticipate this is some-
thing that the city’s going to struggle
with for decades, because it’s only
going to grow. ”
Public comment at the meeting was
generally positive with some still
adamant about focusing more on bicy-
clists and lower speed limits and local
businesses and school officials con-
cerned with how the improvements
would affect them.
Mary Morrissey, a Carlmont
Shopping Center business owner and
president of the Chamber of
Commerce, said on a conceptual level
she thinks the plan is fabulous. But
Morrissey said some have reservations
about the recommendations and would
like the city to install short-term,
portable devices to gauge the effects of
certain improvements.
“Before you build it, please try to put
some temporary measures in place,”
Morrissey said. “Because I think there
are some causes for concern that we all
of a sudden build projects that are then
Spencer said installing temporary
improvements is becoming a common
practice and the council agreed with
the suggestion.
Outreach played a major role in the
plan’s development, Spencer said. The
process included three community
workshops and an open house, Parks
and Recreation Commission and coun-
cil study sessions, online forums and
phone calls, meetings with the school
district, talking with Carlmont
Shopping Center businesses and ask-
ing for input from the police and fire
departments, Spencer said.
“I think that made for a very com-
pelling and much more rounded plan,”
Spencer said. “So what we have is very
much a community-driven plan.”
Some desired lower speed limits,
which the council and Spencer said
they couldn’t arbitrarily do.
Since 2009, the California Vehicle
Code made regulating speed limits
more stringent, Spencer said. There are
a variety of factors that go into the
determination, including studying at
how fast 85 percent of people travel,
then there’s a 5 mph wiggle room,
concessions for schools and other
extenuating circumstances, Spencer
Since the city will be adding further
traffic calming measures, there is a
possibility that slowing down traffic
could enable the city to lower speed
limits later on, Spencer said.
Councilman Charles Stone stressed
there are constraints within which the
city must work.
“If I were building Belmont from the
ground up, as an urban planner, I cer-
tainly would lay a lot out differently
and have continuous bike lanes,”
Stone said. “But we’re kind of stuck
with what we have.”
With myriad conceptual recommen-
dations now in place, staff and con-
sultants will begin refining designs.
By approving the conceptual plan, the
city is able to compete better for
grants and funding, Spencer said.
Depending on which projects the
council chooses to do first, it may be
eligible for funding from the
Metropolitan Transportation
Commission, or grants specific to
schools, bikes or traffic signal timing
projects, Spencer said.
On Tuesday, the council approved
applying for a $7 million grant, of
which the city would contribute about
$1 million.
Throughout the meeting, the council
and staff stressed the plan is a frame-
work and there will be plenty of oppor-
tunities for more community discus-
Councilwoman Cathy Wright, who
was recently appointed, urged every-
one to stay involved.
“I think [design specifications] are
conversations we can have later down
the road,” Wright said. “So I would
encourage the community to stay
involved and stay active. Because it’s
not just a project for the council or the
city, it’s like many [citizens] said, a

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you are ambivalent
about your current career, look into other options.
It’s never too late to change your direction, go after a
dream or pick up a new skill.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You may be feeling
uncertain about a situation at work. If immediate action
isn’t necessary, focus on doing the best job possible.
Keeping busy will help free your mind from worry.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t let anyone push
you to make a hasty decision. Take all the time you
need to investigate the details of a pending financial,
legal or medical matter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Your popularity
is growing within your peer group. Don’t take any
of your relationships for granted, or the tables will
turn. Nurturing what you have built with others will
always be necessary.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t listen to
someone who is cynical. Once you have decided the
best route, keep moving forward. It’s pointless to
wait for everyone’s blessings.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Make sure that
everyone around you is clear about your intentions.
Your insight will inspire others to follow you, giving you
the support and muscle required to reach your goals.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You are a dependable
and dedicated person, but it’s also important to
take time to replenish and rejuvenate. Don’t take on
demands or errands at the risk of getting run-down.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — A hasty decision could
turn out badly if you haven’t checked your sources.
Before you proceed, check to see if someone with
ulterior motives has misled you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Procrastination will be
your downfall. You have decided on your direction, so
don’t waste time second-guessing your moves. Take
the plunge and get on with your life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You don’t have to blow
your budget to enjoy some lively entertainment. Love
and romance are knocking at your door. Make special
plans to do something within your means.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your opponents
will not give an inch. Instead of stepping into the
spotlight where it is easy for others to criticize
your actions, keep your ideas quiet until your
presentation is flawless.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Good advice is useless if
you don’t take it. Listen to the experts to discover a
way to overcome anything you face. A delay could
cause trouble.

Frederick Allen Pabst
Case Number: 124793
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Federick Allen Pabst. A
Petition for Probate has been filed by
John F. Sherwood, Sr. in the Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo.
The Petition for Probate requests that
John F. Sherwood, Sr. be appointed as
personal representative to administer the
estate of the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: September 12,
2014 at 9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,
400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
203 Public Notices
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-

100-5 The total amount of the unpaid
balance of the obligation secured by
the property to be sold and reasona-
ble estimated costs, expenses and ad-
vances at the time of the initial publica-
tion of the Notice of Sale is $47,188.48.
If the sale is set aside for any reason, the
purchaser at the sale shall be entitled on-
ly to a return of the deposit paid, plus
interest. The purchaser shall have no
further recourse against the beneficia-
ry, the Trustor or the trustee. NOTICE
considering bidding on this property lien,
you should understand that there are
risks involved in bidding at a trustee auc-
tion. You will be bidding on a lien, not on
the property itself. Placing the highest
bid at a trustee auction does not auto-
matically entitle you to free and clear
ownership of the property. You should
also be aware that the lien being auc-
tioned off may be a junior lien. If you
are the highest bidder at the auction, you
are or may be responsible for paying off
all liens senior to the lien being auctioned
off, before you can receive clear title to
the property. You are encouraged to in-
vestigate the existence, priority and size
of outstanding liens that may exist on this
property by contacting the county record-
er's office or a title insurance company,
either of which may charge you a fee for
this information. If you consult either of
these resources, you should be aware
that the same lender may hold more
than one mortgage or deed of trust on
the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on this
notice of sale may be postponed one or
more times by the mortgagee, beneficia-
ry, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Sec-
tion 2924g of the California Civil Code.
The law requires that information about
trustee sale postponements be made
available to you and to the public, as a
courtesy to those not present at the sale.
If you wish to learn whether your sale
date has been postponed, and if applica-
ble, the rescheduled time and date for
the sale of this property, you may call
877-484-9942 or 800-280-2832 or visit
this Internet Web site www.USA-Foreclo-
sure.com or www.Auction.com using the
file number assigned to this case
9177.20001. Information about post-
ponements that are very short in duration
or that occur close in time to the sched-
uled sale may not immediately be re-
flected in the telephone information or on
the Internet Web site. The best way to
verify postponement information is to at-
tend the scheduled sale. Date: August

aged to have free debates, but to avoid
making belligerent, personal, abusive or
disparaging comments, according to the
Speaking as a citizen, Mary Morrissey,
president of the Belmont Chamber of
Commerce, said the council behaved poor-
ly during the Crystal Springs Upland
School planning debate and wants city
representatives to abide by their rules.
“With Crystal Springs, it was a circus, it
was not comfortable for me to see the
looks and some of the comments. To me, it
was very unprofessional and unsightly, ”
Morrissey said.
But other members of the public, Mercer
and former mayor Dave Warden said the
council had gone too far and accused coun-
cilmembers of violating their own code.
Planning Commission Chair Mark
Herbach, who signed the code, said he was
speaking as a member of the public at the
meeting in support of Mercer and Hold.
“I’m not here to speculate on why two
planning commissioners didn’t sign the
document, I’m here to tell you in my deal-
ings with both. … I’ve seen nothing but
ethical behavior,” Herbach said. “This
almost smells of McCarthyism where
you’re kicking people off the Planning
Commission for failing to sign the docu-
ment when in fact there have been no vio-
Mercer, who’s been on the commission
for nine years, said elected and appointed
officials already take an oath to abide by
state and federal mandates.
“The language part with respect to con-
duct is very subject to interpretation and
really opens the door to be used for censo-
rial purposes or vindictive purposes,”
Mercer said after the meeting. “I haven’t
broken any law or ethical code, I simply
don’t find their code necessary. ... So the
only purpose of it must be to control peo-
ple’s ability to express their opinions.”
The councilmembers and city attorney
said the code does not infringe on free
speech but encourages people express
their opinions tactfully. The councilmem-
bers said their intent was not to dismiss
anyone and were surprised Hold and Mercer
refused to sign.
Councilman Eric Reed said he’d worked
with Mercer while on the Planning
“I struggle with why someone wouldn’t
want to sign that; someone that I’ve
worked with in the past who I thought had
a lot of integrity,” Reed said. “[The code]
doesn’t limit freedom of speech … it’s
simply saying I will behave a certain
way. ”
The council questioned why Mercer and
Hold hadn’t brought up their concerns dur-
ing the public hearing process when the
code was first being discussed.
Mercer said she was intimidated to speak
up during the process because she had been
accused of violating the Brown Act on an
unrelated matter after sending an email
expressing concern to the mayor.
Mercer added none of the commissioners
were consulted during the formation of the
code and said the poor behavior of a few
former commissioners and councilmem-
bers didn’t warrant the code.
Voters choose whom they want in office
and sometimes people prefer boisterous
and outspoken representatives, Mercer
Because commissioners are appointed,
not voted into office, the public doesn’t
have the ability to dismiss them.
Lieberman said if Mercer, an appointed
official or any member of the public ever
felt intimidated or mistreated they should
approach the city attorney, city manager,
mayor or an appropriate staff member.
The council emphasized public represen-
tatives are held to higher standards, but
ultimately allowed the commissioners to
finish their terms because Mercer and Hold

future will be required to sign.
Mercer said her term runs out in February
and wasn’t planning on applying again

Councilman Charles Stone and
Lieberman said signatures are symbolic
and would still hold all of the commis-
sioners to the standards of the ethics code.
“Once you become an appointed or elect-
ed official, whether you like it or not
you’re an ambassador of this city. And this
makes it clear there’s certain behaviors
that are not acceptable when you’re in
your official capacity,” Stone said. “I very
much expect that they will conform with
the code of ethics now that they’ve read it.
Whether they sign it or not, my expecta-
tion is that they’ll comply with it.”

A self-imposed, end-of-summer deadline
to act on immigration is rapidly approach-
ing. While Obama has yet to receive the for-
mal recommendations he’s requested from
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson,
administration officials said the president is
intimately familiar with the universe of
options and won’t spend much time deliber-
ating once Johnson delivers his recommen-
After resisting calls to act alone in hopes
Congress would pass a comprehensive
immigration fix, Obama in June bowed to
immigration activists and said that “if
Congress will not do their job, at least we
can do ours.” The most sweeping, contro-
versial step under consideration involves
halting deportation for millions, a major
expansion of a 2012 Obama program that
deferred prosecutions for those brought here
illegally as children.
Roughly half a million have benefited
from that program, known as Deferred
Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA.
But while prosecutors are routinely
expected to use their discretion on a case-
by-case basis, such blanket exempting of
entire categories of people has never been
done on the scale of what Obama is consid-
ering — potentially involving many mil-
lions of people if he extends relief to par-
ents of DACA children, close relatives of
U.S. citizens or immigrants with clean
criminal records.
“The question is how broadly can the pres-
ident extend the categories and still stay on
the side of spectrum of ensuring the laws are
faithfully executed?” said Cristina
Rodriguez, who left the Justice
Department’s Office of Legal Counsel in
2013 to teach at Yale Law School.
Other options under consideration, such
as changes to how green cards are distributed
and counted, might be less controversial
because of the support they enjoy from the
business community and other influential
groups. But Derrick Morgan, a former advis-
er to Vice President Dick Cheney and a
scholar at the conservative Heritage
Foundation, said Obama will still face
staunch opposition as long as he attempts
an end run around Congress.
Obama’s goal had been to announce his
decision around Labor Day, before leaving
on a trip next week to Estonia and Wales.
But a host of national security crises have
pushed the announcement back, likely until
after Obama returns, said the officials, who
weren’t authorized to comment by name and
demanded anonymity.
Obama’s actions will almost surely be
challenged in court.

to the 44th Annual
Millbrae Art & Wine
The Millbrae Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to
our 44th Annual Millbrae Art & Wine Festival. With over
200 artists, 20 food vendors, great live entertainment, a
fun-filled children’s area, cool sponsor presentations and
five locations along Broadway to purchase your favorite
beverages, we are certain we have something for every-
one at this year’s festival!
Not only is the Art & Wine Festival a fun event to shop
for unique, hand-made arts and crafts and great gourmet
food treats, but also it’s a great way for us to showcase
Millbrae’s wonderful merchants and restaurants. We
encourage you to visit them during and after the festival.
As you make your way along the festival route, you
will want to stop by the “Cantina” and the “Classically
Cool Car Show”, located in the city parking lot towards
the south end of the festival. It is the place to see great
street rods and classic cars, sit down, relax and have a
cold beverage, and sample tasty, seasonal microbrews
from our tasting tent, while being entertained by the
classic rock and roll music by local favorites Loudin’
Cleer. You’ll also want to make time for the gifted young
entertainers at the “Streets Filled with Talent Commu-
nity Stage” sponsored by South San Francisco Scavenger
Company. We have also added some new seating areas
along the festival for the comfort of our attendees.
The proceeds from the festival help fund the Cham-
ber’s community work including economic development,
scholarship programs and a variety of community
events. We invite you to visit our Information Booth
located in the center of the festival – on Broadway
between Hillcrest and Taylor – to learn more about the
Millbrae Chamber of Commerce.
It is through the dedicated efforts of the Chamber’s Art
& Wine Festival Committee, all of the volunteers and the
City of Millbrae that we are able to once again bring you
the Bay Area’s best Labor Day Weekend event. Special
thanks are due to the following people for their efforts in
this year’s event: The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office
– Millbrae Bureau and Dan Bennett (Sherriff’s Ser-
vices), Lisa Charney (Festival Chair) and Linda Maule
(Block Captain Coordinator). We would also like to
acknowledge the efforts of the Boy Scout Troop 355 who
perform the trash collection and clean up services dur-
ing the festival. Millbrae Community Television (MCTV)
will, once again, be on site during the weekend doing
live broadcasts from the festival –– literally bringing the
event into our residents’ homes.
We also express our gratitude and thanks to our many
outstanding corporate partners whose generous support
helps make our festival possible.
Again, we welcome you and hope you enjoy all that
our festival has to offer. Please be kind to your pets and
leave them in the comfort of their home. Put on some
sunscreen, slip into comfortable shoes and come enjoy
the fun!
I’ve heard from many people that they’ve never seen a
community so enthusiastically supportive of its home-
town festival as Millbrae. For that, we can all be proud.

merce, please visit www.millbrae.com

carved woodwork, handwoven quilts, dramatic photogra-
phy, stunning fine art paintings –– you’ll find all of this

fresco show. Enjoy a lovely sun-splashed weekend browsing
and strolling among colorful, well-stocked booths and meet
the extraordinary artists who do the work.
Wearable Art
Let your little one show some attitude with T-shirts and
onesies designed by Philip Rowntree. His rock ‘n’ roll-in-
spired clothing line fits kids 3 months to 12 years old. As
a child, Jessica Feinsmith was inspired by her Grandma
Esther’s jewelry box. Today, she combines handcrafted
wooden jewelry with vintage cameos, buttons, stones and
watch gears to create a distinct urban-organic style. Stay
cool with a pretty summer hat designed by Sybil Cano-
Most. Her straw hats are available in many colors and are
adorned with vintage ribbons, scarves and flowers. Check
out her new line of hand-painted fedoras. The four-leaf clo-
ver is the symbol of good fortune. Increase your luck with
Lee Wald’s stunning sterling silver pendants, bracelets,
cuff links and earrings –– a collection that pays tribute to
the Emerald Isle.
Sculpture and Mixed Media
Virginia Jennings designs whimsical glass sculptures.
Radiant colors emerge after she applies pure gold to molten
glass. The artist gleans many different colors from gold ––
aqua, lavender, pink, blue and red. Jack Nguyen specializes
in durable metal sculptures crafted from recycled materi-
als. Conversation pieces include metal airplanes, vintage
telephones, and sports figures in motion. For the writer on
your gift list, pick up a pen handcrafted by Bryce Prusse.
The artist uses acrylic materials, exotic woods, snakeskin,
shredded money, pinecones and pheasant feathers to adorn
his sleek and sophisticated designs. Vince and Kerry Wil-
liams create hanging vases, candleholders, pumpkins,
seashells, fruits, vegetables and lampshades from molten
glass. Their shimmering pieces are gorgeous, and they
make wonderful home accessories.
Functional Art
A clever, wall-mounted jewelry box by Micki Wong-Sislow
keeps valuable treasures safe. Her Izzy Jewel Box made
Oprah Magazine’s “O List” in 2011, and the innovative de-
sign keeps jewelry visible, organized and tangle-free. It’s
time to clean up: Lisa Fitzgerald’s popular soaps are made
with the healthiest natural ingredients. Her body butters
contain aloe vera, glycerin, and vitamin E, A and D. Beau-
tiful fragrances are infused to leave skin smooth, well
hydrated and smelling delicious. Pia and Jim Carlson are
former graphic designers who sell custom tumblers, beer
steins and wine glasses. Their whimsical designs will be
the hit of your next party! Relax to the soothing sounds of
an Ancient Winds CD. Led by Jose Cabezas, Ancient Winds
is a family group. The musicians, who also sell handmade
flutes, are known all over the world for their vibrant, mys-
terious, cultural music.
Fine Art
Josh Kimball’s dramatic color and black-and-white pho-
tography captures life’s extraordinary moments –– pow-
erful ocean mavericks, stunning sunsets and ominous
thunderclouds. From Marilyn Monroe and Johnny Depp to
Buster Posey and Muhammad Ali, Moises Biton’s celebrity
watercolor paintings are incredibly cool. Each piece takes
about 100 hours to complete, and the artist is known for
his vibrant colors and close attention to detail. Gene Gracey
appreciates everyday treasures in her own backyard – a
solitary butterfly, a lone poppy, a cluster of California grapes.
Through her “looking glass,” the photographer shares life’s
simple pleasures with those who don’t always have time to
stop and smell the roses. Mishell Swartwout’s ethereal prints
stretch the imagination. Medieval dragons, beautiful mer-
maids, mesmerizing moons and delicate fairies are painted
with soft brushstrokes and colors. Hand-painted mats and
frames create a unique three-dimensional effect.

Every Labor Day weekend normally tranquil downtown Millbrae
is transformed into the Bay Area’s entertainment hot spot for the
city’s big annual shindig — the Art & Wine Festival. The beat goes
on at this year’s festival, August 30-31, with a wide-ranging musi-
cal mix –– a Michael Jackson tribute band, New Orleans’ R&B,
pulsating Latin rock and salsa, re-imagined Rat Pack era classics,
acoustic Spanish guitar, original funk, soft rock favorites from the
80s, classic rock and roll, and tons more — performed on stage
and street by ten big-name bands. It’s a musical line-up that will
touch your heart and keep your toes tapping all weekend long.
Since 2009, Foreverland has been mesmerizing audiences
around the country with their larger-than-life tribute to the one
and only Michael Jackson. Featuring four dynamic vocalists, a
powerhouse rhythm section, and the hardest working horn section
in the biz, Foreverland recreates hits from the Jackson Five era
through the end of Michael’s incredible career in a way that honors
the King of Pop’s musical genius and legendary showmanship like
no other tribute band has ever done.
Reckless in Vegas has blended the imagery, banter, and classic
music from the 1960’s Glory Days of Vegas with a contemporary
rock band aesthetic. Their dynamic show brings a new twist to
the classics with modern versions of songs by artists such as
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis, Sonny & Cher, Frankie Valli,
Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash, Bobby Darin, and more. Think The
Rat Pack meets Green Day. Whether you remember the swinging
Vegas lounge era days or were born later, Reckless in Vegas has
something for everyone.
Mustache Harbor is a group of dedicated and talented musi-
cians brought together by their astrological signs and a love for
vintage soft rock and sweet stashes. Their destiny is simple: to
build a mustache army capable of creating a soft rock explosion
the likes of which has not been seen since the days when Christo-
pher Cross, Steely Dan, Ace, Kenny Loggins, and The Little River
Band, to name but a few, created AM gold. So slap on a stash and
drink from their bountiful coconuts filled with smooth grooves and
tasty hooks.
Voted Best Local Band in Santa Cruz County nine times running,
Extra Large splices together funk gyrations, Latin spice, fun-in-
the-sun reggae, and classic California rock vigor. This veteran
six-piece ensemble has become a California coast staple adept at
heating up dance floors, concert stages, and festivals. What sets
Extra Large apart from the ‘dance band’ pack is that their dance
music is original, upbeat, positive, and fun. Bursting with scream-
ing horns and steaming strings, with drums and bass bulldozing
any listener’s attempt to stand still, this band continues to reign as
the ultimate party starter for any upbeat occasion. Sometimes size
does matter, and Extra Large dutifully fills every musical gap.
Rooted in the fertile musical soil of the Sonoma County Wine
Country, the Pulsators are a five piece band that plays its own
brand of music. With a get-up-and-dance orchestration, their music
is a spicy blend of driving blues, New Orleans-funky R&B, rock
steady reggae, and rock-and-roll. The band has attracted an ever-
growing legion of faithful fans that keep coming back for more
and was voted a Sonoma County fan-favorite four times in reader’s
choice polls given by The Press Democrat.
Sol performs a mix of Latin rock and salsa to create a Latin
sound for the 21st century.  Based out of San Francisco, Sol started
out by paying tribute to the genres of Latin-Rock, Funk, and R&B
that characterize the Bay Area. Sol covers works from Santana,
Malo, Sapo, Azteca, Cold Blood, Tower of Power, and others.  Over
the years as the group evolved, the band’s repertoire expanded to
include its own originals, salsa, soul, and smokin’ Latin arrange-
ments of popular songs.   The result is simply great dance music
for all people to move and groove by.
Visitors to the festival’s popular Cantina and “Classically Cool
Car Show” area will be treated to the rockin’ rhythms of Peninsula
cover band Loudin’ Cleer. This six piece local band specializes in
rock and roll classics from the 50’s to the 90’s from bands like the
Beatles, the Eagles, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, J. Geils Band, Blue
Oyster Cult, and more.
Guy Palazzolo entertains his audiences with elegant piano
arrangements to timeless classics. Combining a classic piano
training with a childhood immersion in blues, jazz, and popular
classics from the 1930s to 1950s, Palazzolo has created his own
unique sound that is sure to please.
John Clarke’s nimble fingers and heartfelt rhythm perform
magic on the acoustic guitar. With styles ranging from classical,
Spanish, and world fusion, the San Francisco artist is a gift to all his
Heartstrings Music brings you back to old Italy with their charm-
ing collection of ballads and love songs. Al Fabrizio plays the
Neapolitan mandolin in the expressive “tremolo” style, accompa-
nied by his partner Hugo Wainzinger on guitar.

Millbrae Art & Wine Festival 2014 3
The Millbrae Chamber of Commerce will once again partner
with South San Francisco Scavenger, Boy Scout Troop 355 and
the City of Millbrae to promote and encourage Zero Waste at the
Millbrae Art & Wine Festival, August 30-31 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
on Broadway.
“Every day we talk about ways to reduce, re-use, and recycle,”
said Lorianne Richardson, President/CEO of the Millbrae Cham-
ber of Commerce. “We’re on a mission to make this a Zero Waste
festival –– it’s a top priority for us and something we diligently
plan for and try to improve every year.”
The festival has taken steps to make it easier than ever for
festivalgoers and vendors to conserve resources by recycling and
composting. Festival food vendors are required to use recyclable
and compostable foodware. Containers will be made available to
food vendors for composting left-over food scraps including meat
and bones, paper plates, cups, chopsticks, skewers and napkins.
This material will be collected and added to South San Fran-
cisco Scavenger’s existing Commercial Composting collection
Recycling is another major component of the “greening” effort.
Specially marked free-standing containers will be positioned
throughout the festival pedestrian route for recycling glass and
plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Additionally, there will be
large recycling containers for cardboard and mixed paper as
well as glass, plastic and aluminum in strategic locations for
event staff, vendors and sponsors. The festival will recycle some
3,000 bottles of wine, margaritas and soft drinks.
“It’s our goal to make sure we’re doing everything possible to
maximize recycling and minimize trash,” said Richardson.
The festival is also encouraging the use of public transporta-
tion, bicycles and car pools to minimize carbon emissions and
reduce vehicular traffic. Free round-trip shuttle service will be
available from the Millbrae BART/Caltrain station every twenty
minutes, dropping off and picking up riders at the south end of
the festival near the intersection of Victoria and Broadway.
“We’re delighted and pleased to partner again with the
Chamber of Commerce,” said South San Francisco Scavenger’s
Doug Button. “It fits in with our efforts to create a sustainable
community, will help to promote recycling and will reduce the
amount of garbage placed in landfills.”
South San Francisco Scavenger is a leading integrated solid
waste management company in the Bay Area offering debris
box, recycling and garbage services for residential and com-
mercial customers. For additional information, please go to:

San Francisco–based The Missing Link
handcrafts gourmet sausages with boar,
pheasant, buffalo and elk raised on sustain-
able family farms. Their flavors are enhanced
with organic vegetables and fruits blended
into the sausage meat. The quarter-pound
links are steamed then grilled on a Panini
and served with condiments from slaw to
sauerkraut to chili aioli.
Real Cool Frozen Treats, located in Santa
Rosa, finds inspiration from height-of-the-
season produce, local and organic whenever
possible. They get creative with popsicles both
sweet and savory: Strawberry Refresher with
lemon juice and Thai basil, Raspberry Fudge,
Cantaloupes and Cream, and Cucumber Lime
Cooler with mint. For Ice cream sandwich
lovers, there’s the Snickerdoodle Cookie with
Strawberry Ice Cream or Double-Chocolate Cookie with Salted
Caramel Ice Cream.
Millbrae institution Leonardo’s Deli gets its sausages from
local butcher Pape’s Meats. They serve up sizzling Italian and
Polish varieties, as well as classic beef hot dogs, on sourdough
buns piled high with grilled peppers and onions.
The family from San Francisco’s Manor Coffee Shop comes
to town every year with their wacky invention: Silly Spuds.
They transform a whole, super-sized potato into a giant spiral
French fry on a skewer. Seasonings number well over a dozen,
from white cheddar and nacho cheese to barbecue and pizza.
Skewers are used in a more traditional fashion at Saigon
BBQ, where chicken and pork sticks are grilled Vietnamese
style. The meat comes served on a baguette with pickled
carrots, cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeño; over rice vermicelli
noodles in a sweet-and-sour salad; or with garlic noodles.

Duke’s Wrap Delight is famous for its juicy gyros, the Greek
beef-and-lamb wraps with creamy tzatziki sauce. They also
offer Middle Eastern falafel sandwiches and thoroughly Ameri-
can Philly cheesesteaks.

Gourmet Faire takes another spin on gyros, as well as frying
up crispy calamari marinated in key lime and served with a
lime-watercress pesto.

Indian cuisine—found at Spice Affairs—offers some of the
most satisfying deep-fried goodies, such as the triangular
samosas stuffed with meat and vegetables and the delicate
chicken pakoras with garbanzo batter.

The Japanese yin-yang of sweet and salty is the key to the
popularity of the dishes at Sonoma Teriyaki. It’s present in
their succulent chicken, served over
rice with carrots and broccoli or in a
sandwich, as well as in their vegetar-
ian chow mein and fried rice with

At Thai Stick the key flavor combina-
tion is sweet and sour, with a hint of
garlic. Their signature Thai barbecue
chicken and pork come with noodles or
rice, either in a bowl or a wrap.

American fare continues to attract a
faithful following. For Uncle Bill Gourmet
Corndogs, just a single menu item is
plenty when you’ve mastered corndog bat-
ter so it flakes off the dog like a fresh batch
of cornbread.

At Mike Hustlar’s, half-pound smoked
pork and beef sausages smothered with grilled onions and
sauerkraut are all it takes to attract a healthy crowd.

And Sweet Delights keeps ‘em coming back year after year
with hand-dipped foot-long corn dogs, plump sausages, and
fluffy funnel cakes with fresh strawberries, bananas or mango
and a dollop of whipped cream.

Ear-Good Corn Roaster cooks up possibly America’s oldest
“street” food, roasting fresh bi-color corn in the husk.

Olde Tyme Kettle Corn answers that yearning for crunchy-
salty-sweet in one delectable snack.

Kurlander Soft Serve is a dessert stop that’s both refreshing
and satisfyingly sweet. Their frozen yogurt comes in every-
thing from chocolate and strawberry to creamsicle, butter-
scotch and piña colada.

How Ya Bean is a high-end “brew bar,” offering organic,
hand-poured drip coffee drinks including the fancy mocha they
call Secret Menu. They also whip up a variety of smoothies,
from tropical blends to their famous Sweet Greens made with
organic apples, grapefruit, kale, baby spinach, collard greens,
chard, and flax.
Savory and
Succulent Festival
The Millbrae Art & Wine Festival, now in its 44th
year, has become an annual Labor Day tradition for
aficionados of street food from around the globe. At

Exp. 9/15/14
For an amazing weekend of
excitement and the best family
entertainment value around,
head for the action-packed Kids’
Playland at the Millbrae Art &
Wine Festival, August 30-31
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Broad-
way. Located at the festival’s
north end, at Broadway and
Meadow Glen, the amusements
for youngsters of all ages are
enthralling and endless!
Let the excitement begin
ZIP-LINE! Zip-liners are
safety harnessed, then climb
a spiral staircase up to the
crow’s nest 28 feet in the air.
They are then attached to the zipline by our trained team via a
redundant safety pulley and prepared for launch. Two at a time can
zip side by side so not only will they enjoy the ride but also shriek in
unison while in flight. Flying through the air reaching over 20 MPH
they approach the specially designed power pack decelerator and
come to a gradual stop. The smiles, laughter, and squeals say it all …
it’s a real rush; the thrill of a lifetime!
For a real scream, you gotta try Waterballerz! Participants climb
into a giant, clear inflatable ball which is filled with fresh air. The
the ball is zipped up, which completely seals it, and they enter an
inflatable pool that is 24 by 24 feet and literally walk (and roll) on
water. Run, jump, bounce, walk inside the balls on water. As many
as six balls can be in the pool at one time. This exciting attraction
is a total blast and always a hit!
The Zip-line (at Taylor) and Waterballerz (at La Cruz), are
separate from the Kids’ Playland area which is at Meadow Glen.
Are you ready to jump high into the sky?  Flip around and catch
some massive air? With Mobile Rock’s incredibly fun Quad Bungee,
up to 4 people can be jumping at one time. Flips are fun and easy
to do. Heights of 20’ above the ground can be reached. Parents
get a real kick out of watching their kids have a blast. Try out our
extreme air bouncing equipment to practice stunts or simply for
fun exercise.
Kids and
adults alike

“The Classically Cool Car Show has grown into one of the fes-
tival fave go-to spots –– it keeps getting bigger and better every

set of cars will be displayed each day, so it’s worth coming out

Despite two Belmont planning
commissioners’ refusal to sign a
new code of ethics aimed at pro-
moting collegiality among elect-
ed and appointed officials, the
City Council decided to let them
finish their terms as long as they
abide by the rules.
Planning commissioners
Kristin Mercer and Karin Hold
chose not to sign the code because
they felt it stifled freedom of
speech and consequentially faced
the council dismissing them at a
meeting Tuesday night.
The code, which was adopted
June 10, was created in response
to public disapproval over the way
some commissioners and coun-
cilmembers treated each other and
the community they serve, accord-
ing to the council. To give the new
mandate teeth, appointed officials
can be dismissed and elected offi-
cials can be turned down for com-
mittee seats, Mayor Warren
Lieberman said.
“When we adopted the code of
ethics we weren’t looking for a lit-
mus test,” Lieberman said, accord-
ing to a video of Tuesday night’s
meeting. “My perception was we
had heard from the community that
they wanted us, that is the council
and the commissioners, to behave
respectfully, to work well with
each other, to treat the members of
the public … with respect and dig-
nity. ”
Within the code, city represen-
tatives are to avoid offensive lan-
guage, conduct active listening,
avoid smirking or insulting the
public, staff and peers. Appointed
and elected officials are encour-

Belmont City Council to let planning commissioners finish their terms
Children cross the busy Ralston Avenue near the Carlmont Shopping Center in Belmont. The City Council has
approved a conceptual plan that outlines improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles.
By Samantha Weigel
After more than a year of study-
ing ways to solve congestion on
busy Ralston Avenue, the Belmont
City Council approved a conceptu-
al plan Tuesday that outlines more
than $8.5 million in improve-
ments to ease traffic and create a
safer passage for bicyclists and
Approving the plan didn’t lock
any particular project in stone but
paved the way for the city to pro-
ceed with grant applications.
“I look at this as very much an
incremental improvement. ... I
can look at the report and there are
a lot of recommendations I have
concerns about, but I also know we
will have fairly substantial discus-
sions as they come,” Mayor
Warren Lieberman said, according
to a video of Tuesday night’s coun-
cil meeting. “If we were not to
adopt the plan, I think we would
also be potentially guilty of let-
ting perfection be the enemy of
the good.”
Recommendations for the
diverse east to west road that
directly connects State Route 92
to Highway 101 with nearby
schools and a busy shopping cen-
ter include items for pedestrians,
bicyclists and drivers.
To account for nearly 40,000
vehicles that take Ralston Avenue
daily, consultants suggested
adding traffic calming measures
such as lights and roundabouts and
extending turn lanes. For pedestri-
ans, the city will consider repair-
ing and widening sidewalks,
increasing crossing time at lights
and crosswalk visibility.
Despite citizens who pushed for
a continuous bike lane and lower
speed limits, engineers and the
council emphasized it wasn’t prac-
tical given the layout of the city’s
main arterial or legal per the
state’s vehicle code.
Building a bike path at the steep
incline near State Route 92 would
require removing a lane of traffic in
each direction, which most who
were surveyed said wasn’t accept-
able, said consultant Mark
Spencer, principal engineer with
