Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Friday • Aug. 29, 2014 • Vol XV, Edition 10
By Michelle Durand
After 15 years leading the San Mateo
County Transit District, CEO Mike Scanlon
is moving on.
Scanlon, 67, informed the SamTrans
Board of Directors on Wednesday he is retir-
ing, ending a nearly 50-year public trans-
portation career.
In his written notice of
intent to Chair Jeff Gee
and the board, Scanlon
called his 15 years with
the agency “challeng-
ing, fulfilling and funda-
mentally enjoyable.”
Stepping down, he
wrote, “will be difficult
for me.”
Scanlon would not do interviews on the
subject of his retirement and future plans,
according to SamTrans staff.
In his letter, Scanlon did not indicate a
specific departure date although it will be on
a date in the “not-too-distant future” mutual-
ly agreeable with the board. SamTrans
Communications Manager Jayme
Ackemann said it will likely be tied to the
timeline for recruiting his replacement. The
board is currently forming a hiring commit-
tee to begin the process.
Scanlon joined the district in 1999 as the
general manager/chief executive officer of
SamTrans, executive director of the
Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Authority,
which oversees Caltrain, and executive
director of the San Mateo County

Lawmakers pass bill as states,universities try
to change how they handle rape allegations
By Judy Lin
SACRAMENTO — State lawmakers on
Thursday passed a bill that would make
California the first state to define when
“yes means yes” while investigating
sexual assaults on college campuses.
The Senate unanimously passed SB967
as states and universities across the U.S.
are under pressure to change how they
handle rape allegations. The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry
Brown, who has not indicated his stance on the bill.
Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, said his bill would
begin a paradigm shift in how California campuses prevent
and investigate sexual assault. Rather than using the refrain
“no means no,” the definition of consent under the bill
requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement MARK KITAOKA AND TRACY MARTIN

Mystery of Death
Valley’s moving rocks solved
— For years scientists have theorized
about how large rocks — some weigh-
ing hundreds of pounds — zigzag
across Racetrack Playa in Death Valley
National Park, leaving long trails
etched in the earth.
Now two researchers at the Scripps
Institution of Oceanography at the
University of California, San Diego,
have photographed these “sailing
rocks” being blown by light winds
across the former lake bed.
Cousins Richard Norris and James
Norris said the movement is made pos-
sible when ice sheets that form after
rare overnight rains melt in the rising
sun, making the hard ground muddy
and slick.
On Dec. 20, 2013, the cousins cata-
logued 60 rocks moving across the
playa’s pancake-flat surface.
“Observed rock movement occurred
on sunny, clear days, following
nights of sub-freezing temperatures,”
they wrote in a report published
Wednesday in the online scientific
journal PLOS ONE.
The conclusion proves theories that
have been floated since geologists
began studying the moving rocks in
the 1940s.
The phenomenon doesn’t happen
often because it rarely rains in the
notoriously hot and dry desert valley.
The rocks move about 15 feet per
minute, according to the report.
Richard Norris, 55, a paleobiologist
at Scripps, and James, 59, a research
engineer, launched their “Slithering
Stones Research Initiative” in 2011,
the Los Angeles Times reported.
After getting permits from the
National Park Service, they installed a
weather station in the area and placed
15 stones equipped with global posi-
tioning devices on the playa.
The “GPS stones,” which were engi-
neered to record movement and veloci-
t y, were stationed at the southern end
of the playa where rocks begin their
strange journeys after tumbling down
a cliff.
At the end of last year, Richard and
James Norris returned to inspect the
“We found the playa covered with
ice,” Richard told the Times. “We also
noticed fresh rock trails near shards of
thin ice stacked up along the shore-
The following afternoon, “we were
sitting on a mountainside and admir-
ing the view when a light wind kicked
up and the ice started cracking,” he
said. “Suddenly, the whole process
unfolded before our eyes.”
Five-pound Pomeranian
is world’s fastest on two feet
LOS ANGELES — Jiff was already
cute, lovable and talented. Now he’s
proven he’s speedy too.
The 4-year-old, 5-pound
Pomeranian blazed into the 60th edi-
tion of the Guinness World Records
book that comes out Sept. 10.
He can run 9.1 yards on his hind
legs in 6.56 seconds and 5 meters
(4.55 yards) on his front paws in 7.76
seconds. Both times are faster than
any other dog on the planet has
It’s the first glimpse of the new
book, and Jiff appears in it in 3-D.
He’s used to the spotlight, as a regular
on television, a model and a social
media phenom. His owners have
remained anonymous so they don’t
detract from his popularity.

R&B, soul and pop from the ’60s and
’70s take center stage in “Dreamgirls,”
presented in a highly polished produc-
tion by Broadway By the Bay.
With tuneful music by Henry Krieger
and a book and lyrics by Tom Eyen,
“Dreamgirls” tells the story of three
young Chicago women who call them-
selves the Dreamettes and sing their
way to Motown musical success, but
not without some major bumps along
the way.
Based on groups like the Shirelles
and Supremes, the Dreamettes start
with Effie Melody White (Miranda D.
Lawson) singing the lead and with her
brother, C.C. White (AeJay Mitchell)
writing some of their songs.
However, their manager, Curtis
Taylor Jr. (Anthony D. Jackson),
dumps Effie as his lover and as the lead
singer, replacing her with Deena Jones
(Janelle LaSalle).
When Effie rebels at her diminished
role in what is now called the Dreams,
Curtis dismisses her entirely. She
responds with the defiant “(And I Am
Telling You) I’m not Going,” which
brings down the house near the end of
the first act.
The story goes on to detail the pay-
ola and other devious methods that
Curtis uses to derail Effie’s solo career
in the second act.
Director Angela Farr Schiller, aided
by associate director and choreogra-
pher Robyn Tribuzi, keeps the action
moving swiftly, thanks also to the
light tower-based set by Kelly Tighe.
This production is inspired by the
original Broadway production directed
by Michael Bennett. After premiering
in 1981, it went on to win six Tony
Awards and became a movie in 2006.
Although the large cast features fine
performances throughout, some of the
best come from Jackson as Curtis,
Lawson as Effie and Dedrick
Weathersby as James Thunder Early, a
funky soul singer.
Sean Kana directs the fine orchestra.
Kudos also to Margaret Toomey,
whose costume designs become ever
more glamorous and timely for the
“Dreamgirls” will continue at the
Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway, Redwood
City, through Aug. 31. For tickets and

Boys arrested for ransacking,
burglarizing Hillsborough home
Three juveniles were arrested in
Hillsborough Thursday for burglariz-
ing and ransacking a home after an
unmarked police car chased them
because they were behaving suspi-
ciously, according to police.
The three boys stole jewelry, cash,
laptops and prescription medication
from a home on Alberta Way around
11:23 a.m., according to police.
An unmarked police car assigned to
the city’s burglary suppression detail
noticed a driver sitting in a running
vehicle while parked directly in front
of a residence, according to police.
After circling back to investigate,
the officer saw the car with all three
boys drive away. The officer attempted
to pulled them over for a traffic viola-
tion at which point they fled quickly,
according to police.
Ashort pursuit ended with the vehi-
cle being stopped on the Bunker Hill
offramp from southbound Interstate
280, according to police.
The stolen items and the prescrip-
tion bottle bearing the name of the
victim were found in the vehicle,
according to police.
The 16-year-old Hayward resident
and 15-year-old and 17-year-old
Redwood City residents were arrested.
At least two are believed to have prior
criminal records and police are investi-
gating whether they are connected to
other burglaries.

as part of the department’s DUI Hot
List program, which identifies drivers
who have multiple two-point driving
convictions, multiple DUI convic-
tions or multiple convictions for driv-
ing on a suspended license.
South San Francisco police were
conducting ongoing surveillance
operations at Magana’s home when
they saw him pull up to his residence
in the 200 block of A Street at 5:31
p.m. Monday.
Police said officers, aware Magana
had a suspended driver’s license,
immediately stopped and detained him.
He was placed under arrest on suspi-
cion of driving with a suspended dri-
ver’s license due to a prior DUI convic-
tion and his vehicle was impounded for
30 days.
Police said Monday’s arrest was the
second from the department’s DUI Hot

Police report two scams
involving fake water workers
Burlingame police are warning resi-

man claimed to be an employee of the
city’s water department.
The first incident took place 10 a.m.
Monday, Aug. 25 on the 1600 block of
Albemarle Way in Burlingame. An eld-
erly woman answered a knock at her
door and a man, described as either
Hispanic or black, approximately 35
to 40 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, aver-
age build with a round face, clean
shaven, brown hair, brown eyes and
wearing a long-sleeve gray shirt or
sweater and dark pants. He was neatly
dressed, polite, soft-spoken and had
no accent, according to police.
He told the woman he needed to
check her water flow and she showed
him her interior faucets. He said her
water smelled bad and told her to go to
the backyard to turn on the water.
When she returned, the man was gone
and money and jewelry was missing,
according to police.
A similar incident took place
Wednesday, Aug. 27 on the 1200 block

South City installs
new pedestrian crossing
at El Camino High School
South San Francisco completed an
new pedestrian crossing at El Camino
High School on Aug. 8 to enhance
safety for students as they began the
new school year.
Working with a consultant, the city
installed Rectangular Rapid Flashing
Beacons, or RRFBs, in the crosswalk
at Mission Road between Lawndale and
Evergreen avenues. RRFBs are amber-
colored flashing lights designed to
alert motorists that a pedestrian is
crossing the street. The RRFBs work
in conjunction with video cameras that
detect pedestrians and begin flashing
to warn motorists that pedestrians are
crossing. Pedestrians can also activate
push-button devices mounted on street
light poles to trigger the flashing
lights. The RRFBs are powered by
solar panels engineered to work under
even extreme weather conditions.

Phoenix says she’s ill
PHOENIX — Awoman accused of trying to sneak aboard
multiple flights without a ticket and arrested at a Phoenix
airport this week says she suffers from an
unrecognized mental illness.
Marilyn Jean Hartman gave teary,
often rambling explanations for her
behavior Thursday at a Phoenix jail.
The 62-year-old Hartman says she’s
homeless, suffers from “whistle-blower
trauma syndrome” and has been medical-
ly diagnosed with major depression.
She was arrested Tuesday near baggage
claim at Phoenix Sky Harbor
International Airport on suspicion of
criminal trespass.
Hartman says her last psychological evaluation occurred
about a year ago. Phoenix police are requesting a mental-
health evaluation for her.
Hartman recently was sentenced to 117 days in jail for
violating probation by returning to Los Angeles
International Airport, but she was released Aug. 16 because
of overcrowding.

Sentencing for a Redwood City man
facing three years in prison for torturing
and killing the family puppy was post-
poned Thursday so he can be considered
instead for the county’s mental health
Prosecutors are seeking the maximum
allowed under the terms of Alan
Benjamin Velete’s no contest plea to
felony animal cruelty and misdemeanor
child endangerment. However, at his
defense attorney’s request, a judge is
considering referring Velete to
Pathways although it was not part of the
original negotiated settlement. If
accepted, Velete, 32, will receive treat-
ment and supervised probation. To qual-
ify, he must be a
county resident and
have a documented
mental condition
which his attorney
previously told the
Daily Journal he
does. He returns to
court Sept. 5.
After his client
took the plea deal,
attorney Naresh Rajan said Velete’s
mental issues don’t excuse his crimes
but help explain why they occurred.
Prosecutors say Velete, who is on
both felony and misdemeanor probation
for prior assault and domestic violence
convictions, was angry the terrier mix
puppy, Lucky, defecated on the floor so
he spent a month torturing the animal
before killing it. The abuse reportedly
included keeping him crated in the bath-
room, punching and kicking, feeding
him his bipolar medication, taping his
mouth shut, spraying household cleaner
in his eyes and hanging him in a duffel
bag from the shower while he whim-
pered. Some of the abuse happened in
front of Velete’s 4-year-old daughter
which led to the child endangerment
Velete eventually suffocated Lucky
and took him away in a duffel bag after
which the girlfriend’s mother, who had
reportedly been too terrified to contact
authorities before, finally called the
police to the apartment, according to
Velete remains in custody on $50,000
bail pending his sentencing hearing.

LOS ANGELES — High surf gen-
erated by a former hurricane in the
eastern Pacific rolled onto
Southern California beaches again
Thursday, showing signs of
diminishing but still bringing
warnings of possible property
damage and dangerous rip currents.
Big breakers chewed away at
beaches and provided thrills for
surfers, body-boarders and shore-
line crowds.
However, meteorologists said
the conditions had peaked and
would gradually subside through
Friday, with high surf advisories
expected to expire that evening.
Tropical Storm Marie, down-
graded from hurricane status, was
spinning more than 800 miles
west of Punta Eugenia, Mexico,
and was expected to be further
downgraded to post-tropical
cyclone status Thursday night,
according to the U.S. National
Hurricane Center.
The storm was moving toward
the northwest at about 15 mph
with maximum sustained winds
dropping to 45 mph.
Surging surf arrived on the
Southern California coast late
Tuesday and was wildest on
Wednesday. Blocks of oceanfront
homes flooded in low-lying Seal
Beach south of Los Angeles, pil-
ings were knocked off the Malibu
Pier and a boatyard on Santa
Catalina Island was battered.
Warnings or advisories were
posted for hundreds of miles of
coastline. The National Weather
Service called it the region’s most
significant southerly swell event
since July of 1996.
Lifeguards worked to keep all
but the most experienced surfers
and swimmers out of the water but
still made hundreds of rescues.
Beaches were left with deep
gouges and abrupt drop-offs more
typical of the aftermath of winter
storms than summer.

Teen’s death leads to
safeguards for some air guns
SACRAMENTO — Last year’s fatal
shooting of a 13-year-old boy carrying a
replica weapon prompted state lawmakers
to approve a bill Thursday requiring bright
markings on certain air guns.
Andy Lopez of Santa Rosa was killed in
October when a sheriff’s deputy mistook
the boy’s BB gun for a real AK-47.
“Had this bill been law, I believe he
would be alive today,” said Sen. Noreen
Evans, D-Santa Rosa. “The bottom line is
that a toy should look like a toy, and a toy
should not get a child killed.”
SB199 would apply to guns that fire pel-
lets or BBs that are six millimeters or
eight millimeters. They would have to
have brightly colored surfaces or promi-
nent fluorescent strips.
The bill passed the Senate on a 22-12
party-line vote and goes to the governor.
Republican lawmakers objected, saying
criminals could simply paint real guns to
confuse police.
“Criminals will be painting up all kinds
of dangerous weapons,” said Sen. Jim
Nielsen, R-Gerber. “It’s another way to
disarm the law-abiding citizens. ... Be
aware of unintended consequences.”
No. 2 House Republican
faces unlikely challenge
WASHINGTON — Raul Garcia has a ques-
tion for Kevin McCarthy, the House’s No. 2
Republican: “While we are waiting for you
on immigration reform, who should be har-
vesting America’s food?”
It’s a provocative query and the founda-
tion of Garcia’s long-shot challenge to
McCarthy, a four-term incumbent who rose
to power after another GOP leader thought
unsinkable, Virginia’s Eric Cantor, fell to
an unknown candidate in a primary.
Garcia’s is a longshot challenge. He’s an
unknown California farm worker who got
on the ballot as a write-in candidate. But he
now has backing from labor unions, and
ambitions to hold the new House majority
leader to account in his own, agriculture-
rich back yard for the failure of the
Republican House to move immigration
“My idea is to send a message that the
whole country will hear,” Garcia said in
Spanish in a phone interview from Wasco
after a night shift hauling tomatoes. “The
farmworkers are the ones who put the food
on the tables of the whole country. And we
are not being represented.”
California extends
review of $25B delta plan
SACRAMENTO — More planning is
needed on a $25 billion proposal to build
two massive water tunnels in Northern
California, state officials said this week.
Some 30,000 pages of environmental
reviews and draft plans have already been
generated on what would be the biggest
water supply project in California in
decades, the Los Angeles Times reported.
On Wednesday, the Department of Water
Resources said it will do further work with
state and federal agencies on revising parts
of the drafts. They will be reissued next
year for additional public comment.
That will push a final decision on the
tunnels — originally scheduled for late
this year — well into 2015.
Backed by major urban and agricultural
water districts, the project would change
the way some Northern California supplies
are sent south to the San Joaquin Valley
and Southern California, the Times said.
Sacramento River water would be divert-
ed into two 30-mile-long tunnels and con-
veyed under the Sacramento-San Joaquin
delta to existing pumping facilities.
The $25 billion project also includes
extensive restoration of fish and wildlife
habitat in the delta. Supporters say the
changes will improve environmental con-
ditions and ease pumping restrictions that
have cut water exports.
Bill would crack down
on paparazzi drones
SACRAMENTO — Abill headed to Gov.
Jerry Brown would crack down on
paparazzi deploying drones as they chase
The state Assembly passed AB2304
Thursday on a 72-0 vote.
The legislation by Democratic
Assemblyman Ed Chau of Monterey Park
would make drone operators liable for
invasion of privacy when they photo-
graph and record celebrities in their back-
yards and homes. The issue was highlight-
ed recently when pop star Miley Cyrus
posted a video of a drone hovering over
her home.
Abill analysis says existing rules might
not consider drones visual or sound-
enhancing devices that violate privacy
Asimilar bill introduced last year failed.
Around the state
By Fenit Nirappil
SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers
passed a key hurdle Thursday in imposing
the nation’s first statewide ban on single-
use plastic bags.
The state Assembly approved SB270 on a
44-29 vote after rejecting the bill earlier in
the week. It now heads to the Senate, where
it must be approved by Sunday and has sup-
port from top Democrats who rejected a sim-
ilar effort last year.
The new version won support from gro-
cers by allowing them to charge 10 cents for
paper and reusable bags, and from some
manufacturers by including $2 million in
loans to help shift production to reusable
The bill by Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los
Angeles, would prohibit single-use plastic
bags at grocery stores and large pharmacies
in 2015 and at convenience stores in 2016.
It has sparked one of the most contentious
debates in the last weeks of the legislative
session, with aggressive lobbying by envi-
ronmentalists and bag manufacturers.
For years, a statewide plastic bag ban has
been an elusive goal for lawmakers trying to
reduce the buildup of plastic waste in oceans
and waterways that costs millions of dollars
to cleanup. About 100 local jurisdictions in
California already have adopted similar
bans, including Los Angeles and San
“We live in a throw-away society,” said
Assemblyman Bill Quirk, D-Hayward.
“What this bill does is to make an effort to
do one little thing: Get people to use
reusable bags.”
Opposition to the bill has focused on the
10-cent fee, which legislators of both par-
ties have called unfair to consumers.
“We’re adding significantly to their
costs,” said Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-
Chino Hills. “This is a tax on our con-

SAN FRANCISCO — Gov. Jerry Brown’s
nominee to the California Supreme Court
was easily confirmed Thursday after a brief
The three-member Commission on
Judicial Appointments unanimously con-
firmed Stanford University law professor
Mariano-Florentino “Tino” Cuellar to the
state’s highest court. The Mexican-born
legal scholar and registered Democrat will
be the court’s only Latino.
Cuellar, 41, will fill a vacancy created by
the retirement in January of conservative
Justice Marvin Baxter.
His name will also be on
the November ballot, so
voters can decide whether
to keep him on for a 12-
year term.
Cuellar faced no oppo-
sition during the one-
hour hearing in the San
Francisco courtroom
where he will preside.
Three witnesses testi-
fied in support of Cuellar

WASHINGTON — With a self-imposed
deadline looming, President Barack Obama
said Thursday he still intends to act on his
own to change immigration policies but
stopped short of reiterating his past vows to
act by end of summer.
Obama raised the slim hope that Congress
could take action on a broad immigration
overhaul after the midterm elections in
November. He said that if lawmakers did not
pass an overhaul, “I’m going to do what I can
to make sure the system works better.”
But for the first time since pledging to act
by summer’s end, he signaled that such a tar-
get date could slip. He said that the adminis-
tration had been working to reduce the flow of
unaccompanied minors attempting to cross
the border and noted that the number of
apprehensions at the border had fallen in
“Some of these things do affect time lines
and we’re just going to be working through
as systematically as possible in order to get
this done,” he said in a news conference
where he also addressed Russian aggression
in Ukraine and action against Islamic State
Two months ago, Obama angrily conceded
that the House did not intend to take up immi-
gration legislation this year and ordered
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and
Attorney General Eric Holder to come up with
actions the president could take on his own.

Two counties ask to
form separate state
By Juliet Williams
SACRAMENTO — Representatives of two
counties in far Northern California peti-
tioned state officials Thursday for the right to
form a 51st state called Jefferson, formally
asking state lawmakers to vote on their pro-
Modoc and Siskiyou counties, which share
a border with Oregon and have a combined
population of about 53,000, submitted peti-
tions from their county governments to the
secretaries of the state Assembly and Senate
after filing a petition complaining about a
lack of representation to the secretary of
Organizer Mark Baird told a crowd of about
70 supporters at a rally outside the state
Capitol that residents of as many as 10 coun-
ties “would be free to create a small state with
limited government.”
“We don’t need government from a state
telling people in a county what to do with
their resources and their children’s education.
You are better equipped to educate your chil-
dren than the state or federal government,”
Baird said to applause.
Six counties have so far approved plans to
pursue secession, either through elected offi-
cials or at the ballot box, and supporters plan
to submit more petitions in the coming
months. Voters in two counties considered
the idea in the June primary, with Tehama
voters approving secession and Del Norte
voters rejecting it.
On Thursday, supporters waved flags and
wore T-shirts bearing the movement’s logo:
two X’s and a coiled snake that said “State of
Jefferson. Don’t tread on me.”
Later, a group of about 10 of them pushed
past the dozens of lobbyists lining the halls
of the Capitol for the final week of legisla-
tive session to deliver their petitions to the
clerks’ offices, where staff members were
slightly confused.
“We fully expect to be ignored,” Baird said.
The filings were the first step in building a
legal case that supporters believe will allow
them to secede from California. They say the
U.S. Constitution allows a region to petition
the government for secession. If lawmakers
ignore the petition, Jefferson proponents
say it will give them standing to file a law-

Letters to the editor
By Craig Wiesner
s head usher welcoming people
to our church last Sunday morn-
ing, I greeted one family whose
son had recently started learning to drive.
Mom and Grandma were grateful that they
had arrived safely and we chuckled about
the right of passage they and their young
driver were experiencing. Lots of other
folks streamed into church, all smiling in
the glorious sunshine of Palo Alto, so
many miles away from the strife and
racial tensions of places like Ferguson,
Missouri. We don’t have problems similar
to Ferguson, do we?
The sermon crafted by our director of
Children and Family Ministries was about
flipping around the assumptions we auto-
matically make about people based on
their external appearance and labels, and
the experiences our youth group had had
during their mission trip to Los Angeles
this summer, “complicating” the stories
of the people they worked with and
served. This led to some thoughts about
Michael Brown, a young black man who
had been shot and killed by a police offi-
cer in Ferguson two weeks ago. What fol-
lowed, during our congregation’s prayers
of the people, was an outpouring of suf-
fering other parents and grandparents in
our congregation had experienced, and are
experiencing daily, as their children and
grandchildren live through their own
rights of passage. The difference between
these children and the youngster who
drove to church this morning? These
other children are black.
Acollege student home on break, jog-
ging through his Palo Alto neighborhood
is stopped by police, wondering what he
is running from. “Just jogging,” he says.
“I don’t think so.” The police officer
responds. Another young man home from
school driving a somewhat beat-up car
that a typical middle-class college kid
could afford is pulled over because there’s
something “funny” about his break
lights. Nothing really wrong with the
lights, but, what was he doing driving
around Menlo Park? A
Palo Alto mom gets an
email from her neigh-
borhood group warning
all the neighbors that
“there’s a black man sit-
ting in a car” on such
and such street. “You
realize that you do have
a black family in your
neighborhood?” she responds after her
anger lessens, and that black man could
be one of her sons, waiting for a buddy so
they can go downtown and get some
lunch. Ablack father and grandfather, late
for a film and running toward the theater
after finally finding parking a few blocks
away, has to decide whether he will let
himself be even later for the film so that
he can respond to the white man who
shouted as he ran by “Hey, you look like
you just robbed a place.” Another Palo
Alto mom, visiting Southern California
with her two black kids, is pulled over by
police only to be told once the police
officer noticed that she is white, that he
wouldn’t have pulled her over if he had
seen her and not her children as he cruised
The outpouring of anguish, anger, fear
and humiliation that we heard from just a
few of the people in our congregation,
black and white parents and grandparents
of black children and grandchildren, was
heartbreaking. Each of them shared how
they had to teach their children how to
keep their hands on the steering wheel,
avoid any sudden moves, say “yes sir”
and “no sir,” and to never argue with the
police ... do everything possible to avoid
getting arrested, beaten or killed.
Whether the average person realizes it,
there’s a huge racial divide right here on
the streets of Palo Alto, Menlo Park and
Atherton and across our entire country.
The parents of the youngster just learning
to drive should rightfully be nervous
about the dangers he faces. There are laws
in place to help protect him, and all of us,
from the risks inherent to anybody oper-
ating a 2-ton vehicle. What laws, though,
protect those who are walking, jogging
or driving while black or brown? Judging
from the pain expressed at the corner of
Lincoln and Cowper, whatever laws or
rules there might be don’t apply around
here. Being black or brown means that
wherever you go, whatever you do, you
may be suspected by the community, and
must be prepared to be stopped by the
police, and when that happens you need
to let go of the idea that you are an
American citizen, with inalienable rights,
but instead become a limp washrag of
obsequious obedience, praying that this
encounter won’t end up with you in hand-
cuffs or worse.
Awoman protesting in Washington,
D.C., last week held a sign that said she
couldn’t believe she still had to be
protesting this “expletive-deleted” in
2014. Yet here we are. The question is
what can we do about it. While faith com-
munities can preach about flipping our
assumptions and complicating the narra-
tives in our sermons, and have been
doing so for decades, I have to agree with
another woman in our congregation who
stood up during the prayers and said that
this was a time when we had to take
action. And we will.
In the coming weeks, we will work
toward a community conversation, for the
police, the city councils, the mayors and
the families of Palo Alto, Menlo Park and
Atherton to come together and begin the
process of making the streets of our com-
munities safe for all of our neighbors, in
all the beautiful colors of the rainbow of
God’s wild diversity.
Will you join us?

Renters need a hand
The topic of whether or not ABAG num-
bers are realistic is moot, as both Mayor
Michael Brownrigg and Vice Mayor Terry
Nagel implied (“Faulty population num-
bers may influence housing” in the Aug.
20 edition of the Daily Journal). The real
story not even mentioned in your article
is the growing clamor for affordable hous-
ing. Over 20 renters from Burlingame
attended the council meeting, some of
them courageously telling personal sto-
ries of impossible rental increases and
impending displacement. We also heard
from highly knowledgeable speakers
from Peninsula Interfaith Action (now
PIA/SFOP), the Housing Leadership
Council and Urban Habitat.
Renters in Burlingame and other Bay
Area cities are under assault and they are
starting to fight back. Homeowners enjoy
the protections of mortgage interest
deductions, Proposition 13 tax breaks,
and many other financial benefits.
Renters, on the other hand, pay their
landlord’s mortgage interest, property
taxes, sewer and water bond assessments
and maintenance costs; yet they are
regarded as second-class citizens, with
absolutely no protections from egregious
rent increases. Low-income seniors and
disabled people are suffering the most.
Something has got to happen now to stop
the bleeding.
I urge all renters to come together to
work toward solutions in their communi-
ties, and demand acknowledgment,
respect and action from their elected lead-

Dress-up days
f I met the man I was before I had a
daughter, I would laugh at him. Then
give him a hug and a pat on the back.
That man had said there is no way his
daughter would be into princesses or Disney.
Just no damn way.
Fast-forward about three years and that
sentiment was obviously rooted in fantasy.
Both princesses and Disney have a way of
grabbing onto toddlers and not letting go.
We now have several princess costumes that
are sometimes (OK, pretty much all the time)
worn as cloth-
ing and dress-up
and dolls are
pretty much part
of the routine.
And the
books! I would
like to address
some of the
content in these
books. First of
all, fairy tales
are just creepy
and weird.
People are bak-
ing live birds in
pies and con-
stantly falling and getting killed. Princess
stories have that whole, the prince must save
the day thing, but there is also a lot of hang-
ing around. And my daughter thinks only
witches read books because of the spell
book in Snow White. Can’t any of these
princesses read a book in one of these sto-
ries? Or maybe clean their room? Cinderella
is OK because she cleans, feeds chickens and
makes friends with animals after her stepsis-
ters are mean to her, so that’s a good lesson I
suppose. But really, would it hurt anyone to
write a princess book in which the main
character reads, eats vegetables, brushes
their teeth and goes to bed on time?
But back to the costumes. It all started
with this phenomena known as “Frozen”
that apparently is all the rage with the under
4 crowd and even those older. Avideo snip-
pet here at a friend’s house, a song played at
day care and soon it was all “Frozen” all the
time. The movie’s message isn’t bad, it’s
about sisterly love, so that’s OK. Then it
was the box of Disney VHS tapes that a fam-
ily member had saved for us. That opened the
entire panoply of everything princess.
Dress-up time became frustrating for mom
and me since we couldn’t get the ribbons
right on the dresses. And that’s when we got
the text.
“Costco has princess dresses on sale.”
And so we went. And bought them. A
whole array. But it didn’t stop there because
apparently Rapunzel was needed. So there we
were again and by the way, here’s an Anna
dress. That’s one of the sisters in “Frozen.”
She has a red wig.
Once home, it was a fashion show, or like
a Madonna concert, with costume changes
“Well, I’m glad we didn’t get into this
whole princess thing,” I said to my wife,
who responded with a smile and a shrug.
The bottom line is I like seeing my daugh-
ter happy and she is happy when she is role-
playing. And just what was my whole issue
with princesses and Disney anyway? Was it
the royalty thing? The fact that many of
them had to have a prince save them? Or that
it made them feel that they were more “spe-
cial” than everyone else? Too girly?
At this point in my daughter’s life, she has
no idea about the politics of princesses. She
is a girl, so really it’s OK for her to be
“girly” and she thinks it’s fun to dress up
like princesses. And maybe going through
this now will break it before she gets older
and starts to understand gender and socioeco-
nomic dynamics.
Just the other day she woke me up to tell
me she was done with dress-up clothes and
wanted to wear normal clothes. That lasted a
few hours, so who knows what the future will
hold? Maybe I’ll laugh at my current self in a
few years or maybe I won’t. Either way, it’s
definitely interesting. And dare I say fun?

U.S. financial markets ended slight-
ly lower Thursday, marking their first
loss in a week of record highs.
The escalating conflict in Ukraine,
disappointing retail earnings and prof-
it outlooks combined to weigh down
the market, eclipsing some good news
on the U.S. economy and labor mar-
“The key driver was largely the
Ukraine news and the uncertainty of
what that means,” said Erik Davidson,
deputy chief investment officer at
Wells Fargo Private Bank.
U.S. stock index futures pointed to a
lower opening in premarket trading
Thursday, following a downward turn
in global stock markets as traders
reacted to the developments in
Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko
said Russian forces had entered his
country. He called an emergency meet-
ing of the nation’s security council.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note
declined as investors sought out lower-
risk assets.
A string of disappointing earnings
and profit outlooks late Wednesday and
early Thursday also weighed on the
market early on.
Not all the news was discouraging.
The Commerce Department estimat-
ed that the U.S. economy grew at an
annual rate of 4.2 percent in the April-
June quarter.
The Labor Department added to the
good news, saying the number of
Americans seeking unemployment
benefits slipped last week to 298,000,
a low level that signals employers are
cutting fewer jobs and hiring is likely
to remain strong.
“The economic data in the U.S. con-
tinues to look quite good,” Davidson
Nonetheless, major U.S. stock
indexes opened lower. They pared
some of their losses as the day went
on, but remained down the rest of the
All told, the Standard & Poor’s 500
index fell 3.38 points, or 0.2 percent,
to 1,996.74. The index hit record
highs the first three days of the week.
The Dow Jones industrial average
slid 42.44 points, or 0.3 percent, to
The Nasdaq composite shed 11. 93
points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,557.69.
Major U.S. indexes are on track to
end higher for the month and are up for
the year.
Trading volume was lighter than the
recent average ahead of the Labor Day
Investors seized on the lackluster
earnings to reduce their holdings in
several retailers.
Williams-Sonoma tumbled 12 per-
cent after the cookware and home fur-
nishings company issue a disappoint-
ing full-year profit outlook late
Wednesday. The stock shed $8.96 to
Tilly’s lost 4.3 percent after the
company forecast a difficult summer,
noting customer traffic was down and
merchandise discounts were cutting
into its profit. The stock slid 37 cents
to $8.15.
Genesco also declined after the
apparel and footwear seller issued a
profit outlook that was shy of Wall
Street’s expectations. Genesco sank
$6.73, or 7.6 percent, to $81.94.
Abercrombie & Fitch fell 4.8 per-
cent after the teen clothing company
reported revenue that fell short of ana-
lysts’ estimates. The stock slid $2.13
to $41.87.
The poor earnings and outlooks
from retailers ran counter to what has
otherwise been a strong corporate
earnings season, which has helped
drive a late-summer revival for U.S.
The dour outlooks are particularly
discouraging when one considers that
the sector is entering what traditional-
ly is the best season for retailers, said
JJ Kinahan, chief strategist at TD
“That does put a bit of a note of cau-
tion over everything,” he said.
Ukraine conflict weighs on markets; Retailers fall
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Thursday on the New
York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Market:
Abercrombie & Fitch Co., down $2.13 to $41.87
The retailer reported weak sales as more teens shop elsewhere. It plans
to stock trendier clothing without the Abercrombie logo.
Guess Inc., down $2.26 to $23.38
The jeans wear company reported a 45 percent decline in second-quarter
earnings and issued a disappointing profit outlook.
Dollar General Corp., up 50 cents to $64.20
The discount retailer said it still wants to buy rival Family Dollar, even
though its nearly $9 billion offer was rejected last week.
Williams-Sonoma Inc., down $8.96 to $65.93
The seller of cookware and home furnishings, which also owns Pottery
Barn and West Elm stores, issued a weak profit outlook.
Movado Group Inc., down $1.72 to $37.07
Shares of the watch maker continued to fall after the company reported
disappointing results earlier in the week.
Signet Jewelers Ltd., up $8.34 to $116.37
The company behind jewelry stores Zales and Kay Jewelers said sales
rose in its second quarter compared with a year ago.
Cott Corp., up 20 cents to $7.49
A Stifel analyst raised the investment rating on the beverage maker’s
stock to a “Buy,”citing its improving revenue outlook.
Gordmans Stores Inc., down 37 cents to $3.59
The department store operator reported disappointing sales as it marked
down its merchandise to get sell its older products.

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple’s latest
product launch will be in a setting that
holds a special place in its history,
signaling how big this event is for the
The Sept. 9 launch, which is expect-
ed to feature a larger iPhone and possi-
bly a computerized watch, will be in
the same Silicon Valley venue where
Apple’s late co-founder, Steve Jobs,
took the wraps off the original Mac
computer 30 years ago. That machine
was hailed as a major breakthrough
that helped bring personal computing
to the masses.
These events have become an annual
rite since the 2007 release of the
iPhone, but this year’s may be the
most highly anticipated since the iPad
came out in 2010.
A “smartwatch” or other wearable
technology would mark the company’s
first foray into a new product category
since the iPad came out.
True to its secretive nature, Apple
Inc. isn’t giving any clues about
what’s on the Sept. 9 agenda. “Wi sh
we could say more,” Apple said in a
succinct white invitation mailed
Thursday to reporters and others.
The company scheduled the event at
an auditorium about 3 miles from its
Cupertino, California, headquarters.

WASHINGTON — After a bleak start
to the year, the U.S. economy grew at a
brisk annual rate of 4.2 percent in the
April-June quarter, the government
said Thursday, slightly faster than it
had first estimated.
The upward revision supported
expectations that the second half of
2014 will prove far stronger than the
first half.
The Commerce Department’s second
estimate of growth for last quarter fol-
lowed its initial estimate of 4 percent.
The upward revision reflected stronger
business investment than first
The seasonally adjusted 4.2 percent
annual growth rate for the gross
domestic product — the nation’s total
output of goods and services — came
after the economy had shrunk at a 2.1
percent annual rate in the January-
March quarter. That was the economy’s
biggest drop since the depths of the
Great Recession, and it reflected main-
ly the effects of a harsh winter that
kept consumers away from shopping
malls and disrupted factory production.
Many economists say they expect
growth of around 3 percent in the cur-
rent July-September quarter and for the
rest of the year.
During a White House news confer-
ence Thursday, President Barack
Obama took note of the upward revi-
sion to growth.
“There are reasons to feel good about
the direction we are headed,” Obama
“Companies are investing, con-
sumers are spending,” he said.
Still, he acknowledged that “there is
a lot more that we should be doing to
make sure that all Americans benefit
from the progress that we have made.”
Obama said he would press Congress
when it returns next week to take fur-
ther actions to boost the economy.
The government’s upwardly revised
estimate of business investment last
quarter showed capital spending grow-
ing at an annual rate of 8.4 percent last
quarter. That was sharply higher than
the government’s initial 5.5 percent
Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at
Pantheon Macroeconomics, said the
strength in business investment has
likely extended into the current quar-
ter, lending support to the economy.

Google building fleet
of package-delivering drones
SAN FRANCISCO — Google’s secretive research labo-
ratory is trying to build a fleet of drones designed to
bypass earthbound traffic so packages can be delivered to
people more quickly. The ambitious program announced
Thursday escalates Google’s technological arms race with
rival Amazon.com Inc., which also is experimenting with
self-flying vehicles to carry merchandise bought by cus-
tomers of its online store.
Amazon is mounting its own challenges to Google in
online video, digital advertising and mobile computing in
a battle that also involves Apple Inc.
Abercrombie name to shrink from clothing
NEWYORK — The Abercrombie & Fitch logo has lost
the power it once wielded.
Shares of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. fell Thursday after
the retailer reported weak sales as more teens shop else-
where. The company is trying to stock trendier clothing
— and it turns out that means stripping off the once-prized
Abercrombie logo.

For the first time since 2007, when the
Peninsula Athletic League was a two-divi-
sion league, the Hillsdale football team
finds itself playing in the Ocean Division.
From 2008 to 2013, the Knights were
members of the Lake Division in the PAL’s
three-division format. But after winning a
pair of Lake Division titles — in 2009 and
last season — Hillsdale is finally moving
up the PAL football food chain.
That being said, coach Mike Parodi wants
the 2014 version of the Knights to show
they deserve to stay in the Ocean Division.
“This particular group does not belong in
the Ocean (Division). Last year’s team did.
They put (the 2014 team in the Ocean).
What are you going to do with it?” Parodi
said. “It feels like a big ocean. We’re a little
bit more questionable (this season). This
year, who’s going to step up and fill some of
the voids? We think we have some answers.
“Is there any good time to move up? This
is where we want to be and hopefully we can
stay for a while and then move up to the Bay
The Knights have some pieces in key
positions that should enable them to stay
competitive in the Ocean Division, but
Parodi admitted his team’s depth is a bit
more shallow this season and there are some
questions that need to be answered.

tion on using a spread passing attack, the

Jefferson’s magic number is 2010.
That is the last season Indians football
posted a winning record. Since that
Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division
championship season, Jefferson posted
records of 1-15 in league and 3-27 overall
over its last three seasons.
Having since fallen to the Lake Division,
last year was the worst of it, with Jefferson
going winless under first-year head coach
Cesar Vega. Back for his second year at the
helm, Vega is wholeheartedly realistic about
expectations going into the current season.
With some bright spots — including a
returning quarterback and sturdy starting
five on the offensive line — Vega is also dar-
ing to buck expectations with a bit of opti-
“We did not have a successful season at all
last year, but I kind of anticipated that,”
Vega said. “While it did start out rough, I do
feel like there’s a lot of talent in the school
and there’s a lot of things we can do with
these kids and hopefully it’s going to start
this year. ”

Menlo-Atherton High School announced
its eighth Athletic Hall of Fame class, a 12-
member list of the best players, coaches,
teams and — for the first time — athletic
boosters and a parent volunteer.
Five of the inductees were on hand at a
press conference Wednesday in Atherton:
Connie Hawkins (founder of the athletics’
booster club and longtime member), Susan
Mohr (booster club), Erica Hayes (girls’
basketball, 2008), Plato Yanicks (longtime
track and field coach) and representing M-
A’s 1989 state championship boys’ basket-
ball team was Atiba Williams — who was
inducted as an individual in 1995.
“We’re very excited to put back together
the Menlo-Atherton Athletic Hall of Fame,”
said Steven Kryger, M-A athletic director
and hall of fame chairman. Kryger went on
to explain that the hall of fame was started
in the 1990s and seven classes were induct-
ed with a total of 292 members. The last
induction class, however, was in 2005.
When Kryger and co-athletic director Paul
Snow took over the athletic department four
years ago, one of their goals was to “resur-
rect” the program.
Kryger said the selection process began
last December. He estimated the committee
came back with 50 to 60 names and those
were whittled down to the dozen who were
“We have a great committee,” Kryger said.
“We’re fortunate … we have alumni (on the
committee) from different eras. They had a
really good sense of the teams, the players,
the coaches (of their era of expertise).”
Connie Hawkins and her husband Owen
started M-A’s booster club in 1989. Their
sons were involved in athletics, but they
saw that many of the teams were underfund-
ed and set about to resolve that. Connie
Hawkins said in a release, “We began by
soliciting funds from interested parents and
service clubs in the area.”
“We funded those (sports) that needed it
the most,” Hawkins said.
Mohr became co-chair of the M-A
Boosters in 2004 and helped start in 2005
the school’s annual Big Bear Run, the
boosters’ biggest fundraiser.

the U.S. Tennis Association by winning the
USTA Girls’ 18s National Championship,
the youngest to do since Lindsay Davenport
also won it at 15 in 1991.
On Tuesday, Bellis grabbed headlines by
surprisingly eliminating 12th-seeded
Dominika Cibulkova, the runner-up at the
Australian Open in January. That made the
home-schooled Bellis the youngest player
to win in New York since Anna Kournikova,

her a veteran by comparison. This was her

ANAHEIM — Howie Kendrick drove in
Albert Pujols with a sacrifice fly in the 10th
inning, and the Los Angeles Angels opened
a two-game lead atop the major league stand-
ings with a 4-3 victory Thursday night over
the Oakland Athletics, who finished the
game under protest over a ninth-inning
obstruction call.
Josh Hamilton had a 10th-inning single
as the Angels won the
opener in a four-game
series between the AL
West clubs who hold the
majors' two best records.
Pujols drew a leadoff
walk from Ryan Cook (1-
2) in the 10th, and
Hamilton moved him to
third with a bouncing hit
up the middle.
Kendrick's long fly to right drove in the
slow-footed Pujols, setting off a playoff-
worthy celebration by the Angels, who have
won 12 of 16.
Fernando Salas (5-0) pitched a perfect
10th for the Angels. He has retired 38 of his
last 41 batters.
Oakland protested the game after Erick
Aybar hit a short chopper up the first-base
line to open the ninth. He ran into Dan
Otero as the pitcher fielded it and bumped
into first baseman Brandon Moss.
Home plate umpire Greg Gibson immediate-
ly awarded first base to Aybar, prompting a
lengthy argument from A's manager Bob
Melvin. The Angels then loaded the bases
with one out, but Kole Calhoun popped up and
Mike Trout grounded to third against Cook.
Sonny Gray pitched seven innings of six-
hit ball for Oakland, but left without a deci-
sion for the first time in 11 starts.
C.J. Wilson yielded seven hits and blew a
three-run lead while pitching into the sixth
inning for the Angels.
Gordon Beckham had an early two-run sin-
gle for the Angels, but Oakland pulled with-
in 3-2 in the fifth. Josh Donaldson led off
the sixth with his 26th homer, but Angels
reliever Mike Morin struck out pinch-hitter
Stephen Vogt with the bases loaded to pre-
serve the tie.
Angels edge A’s in 10th
to extend AL West lead
By Antonio Gonzalez
SAN FRANCISCO — One strike shy from
a perfect game last September, Yusmeiro
Petit refused to let another chance at base-
ball history slip away.
Petit set a major league
record when he retired his
46th batter in a row, and
the San Francisco Giants
beat the Colorado
Rockies 4-1 on Thursday
for their third straight
“I think it’s like a
reward for all the work I
have put into my pitch-
ing,” Petit said through a translator. “I
think God gave me a second opportunity,
and I said to myself, ‘He’s giving me anoth-
er opportunity. This time, I’m not going to
allow myself to not do it.’”
Petit (4-3) got the first eight hitters,
establishing the mark by striking out
Charlie Culberson. That broke Mark
Buehrle’s record of 45 straight with the
Chicago White Sox in 2009.
The announced sellout crowd of 41,017 at
AT&T Park gave Petit a standing ovation
after he fanned Culberson. The string ended
two pitches later when the next batter,
Rockies starter Jordan Lyles, doubled to left
field. Charlie Blackmon followed with a sin-
gle to drive in Colorado’s only run.
“I was a little nervous when the hitters
were advancing toward the record. But in
that pitch to the pitcher, I was not nervous,”
Petit said. “I was doing my job. The first
pitch was fine. The second pitch was fine,
too, but it slid a little bit where I didn’t want
it to.”
Petit’s streak covered eight games, six of
them in relief. He also surpassed Jim Barr’s
NL record of 41 in a row with the Giants in
1972, carving out his own slice of baseball
lore after Eric Chavez wrecked Petit’s perfect
game against Arizona with a two-out single
in the ninth last year.
The 29-year-old journeyman from
Venezuela made the start in place of strug-
gling Tim Lincecum, who was available out
of the bullpen. Petit allowed four hits,
struck out nine and walked none, pitching
out of the stretch the entire game.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he will
weigh his options but admitted it will be
hard to take Petit out of the rotation.
“What a roll to get on to have that kind of
record,” Bochy said. “As long as this
game’s been going on, now he’s got it.”
Gregor Blanco hit a two-run homer, Angel
Pagan had three singles and two others
drove in a run to supply all the support Petit
Jean Machi and Sergio Romo each tossed
a scoreless inning of relief, and Santiago
Casilla pitched a scoreless ninth for his
12th save in 16 chances.
Lyles (6-2) allowed three runs and four
hits in six innings. But his biggest contri-
bution might have come with his bat, hit-
ting a four-seam fastball clocked at 89 mph.
“That might be a trivia answer some day, ”
he said.
Notes: Shortstop Brandon Crawford was
out of the starting lineup for the second
straight day with what Bochy called “gener-
al soreness.” He struck out as a pinch-hitter
in the seventh. Outfielder Michael Morse
was given the day off.
Giants first baseman Brandon Belt’s wife,
Haylee, gave birth to the couple’s first child
Wednesday night. A team spokesman said
the boy, Greyson Ellis Belt, was 10 pounds
and 20 1-2 inches.
Rockies catcher Jackson Williams sin-
gled to center in the fifth for his first career
hit. Williams was drafted in the first round
by the Giants in 2007 before signing a
minor league deal with Colorado this year.
“I’ve been talking with the guys here
about being called up in San Francisco after
spending six years with those guys. It’s
something cool to remember,” Williams
Up next: Right-hander Ryan Vogelsong
(7-9, 3.78 ERA) goes for his first victory at
home since May 24 when he takes the
mound in the opener of a three-game series

Diekroeger’s hit streak
snapped Thursday at 21 games
Danny Diekroeger had his historic 21-
game hitting streak snapped Thursday, as
the left-handed hitting third baseman went
0 for 4 as his St. Cardinals Short-Season
affiliate State College Spikes managed just
three hits as a team.
The Spikes still claimed the victory in a
1-0 win over Williamsport.
AMenlo School graduate and recent 10th
round draft pick out of Stanford, Diekroeger
started his hit streak Aug. 2.Through the 21
games, he hit .299 (29
for 97) while improving
his season average to
. 285.
Diekroeger surpassed
the previous State
College record 18-game
streak set by Brian Friday
in 2007.
With four more games
remaining on its regular-
season schedule, State
College has clinched a postseason berth by
winning the New York-Penn League
Pinckney Division title. League playoffs
begin next Wednesday with schedules yet to
be determined.

World's smallest Portable Jump Starter and
Back-up Power Supply
closest individual game margin coming in a
36-20 loss to Carlmont in the Scots’ only
Lake Division win of the year.
Vega’s hopes are married to the instilla-
tion of a strict spread offense, forgoing the
pistol look of a year ago. Quarterback
Damari Cual-Davis returns for his second
season; and the 5-11, 170-pound junior has
some success upon which to build. He com-
pleted 51 percent of his passes last season
(91 for 178) and with 618 yards on 91 car-
ries, he was also Jefferson’s most prolific
“We had a lot of adversity for the sopho-
more quarterback, but he has grown a ton.
As a junior, he’s going to be definitely a
positive force for us,” Vega said. “He’s a
very good option quarterback. This year he
is developing into a really nice passer. …
Running was his strong suit last year, and
that’s definitely still there. That’s definitely
improved. But he can throw the ball.”
Cual-Davis’ presence will help Jefferson
build some depth in the backfield. To com-
pliment returning senior backs Rico
Solomon and Reigil Paniza, first-year varsi-
ty junior David Benjamin will convert to
the position after serving as the frosh-soph
quarterback a year ago. The trio stands to see
equal reps this season, according to Vega.
“It’s a three-headed monster, for sure,”
Vega said.
But the Indians’ offense will rely on
spreading opposing defenses with a flurry of
receivers. The one prototypical wide out is
6-1, 185-pound senior Johnny Paramore,
who has good hands but didn’t get a chance
to prove it last year. Prior to the 2013 sea-
son, Paramore broke his hand playing sum-
mer basketball and was unavailable to play
offense through the first half of the season.
He still soldiered through the year as a
defensive back and eventually totaled 10
catches after returning to offensive duty in
Week 6.
Paramore will be complimented by return-
ing slot receiver Jerriel De la Cruz, a 5-6,
150-pound senior, and first-year senior
Ahmed Esmail, who at 5-7, 145-pounds is
extremely athletic and plays way bigger
than he is, Vega said.
“The fact that we have four receivers on
the field, that’s going to be the biggest
asset,” Vega said. “We do have people who
are fast who can play catch, but also we’re
going to run the ball.”
It is an offense with a lot of working
parts. Whether or not Jefferson will be able
to utilize them, and tally some wins in the
process, all depends on how its offensive
line holds up. With an average size of 6-1,
235 pounds across the board, the line looks
impressive. The key is having them stay
healthy over the course of the season.
“Our line has some size,” Vega said.
“Unfortunately we don’t have depth.”
Seven quality linemen is the size of it.
The addition of the cousin tandem Manu
Tagaoai and Luti Lago’o will put a sopho-
more at each of the guard positions. First-
year junior Jorge Gomez will join senior
Ronald Tom at tackle. Senior center Teo
Calzario, at 5-10, 260 pounds, is stout but
one of the strongest of the group. All five
will moonlight as two-way defensive
On defense, the heart of the linebacker
corps falls to senior Bowie Sunga, a grinder
with a work ethic which Vega hopes will be
contagious among his teammates.
“He’s one of those guys who has that
other gear you will ask everybody else to
get to. He’s got that,” Vega said.
Jefferson is once again setting the bar
high by playing Aragon in the non-league
opener for the second straight year. Last
season, the Dons demolished the Indians to
the tune of 50-0. Yet it was the lowest point
total the Indians surrendered in their five
non-league matchups.
“It was tough. Every game was hard,” Vega
said. “There were lots of blowouts, but the
kids stayed resilient. What I was most proud
of is no one quit. They stayed through it,
they fought through it every single game.”
In four non-league games this season,
Jefferson will face three rematches of last
season, including games with Petaluma and
“There’s a nice core [this year], so hope-
fully we can develop this and keep on mov-
ing forward,” Vega said. “Our frosh-soph
was successful last year, but that doesn’t
always spell success in the varsity. But
hopefully we can nurture it and cultivate it
and make it into some success.”

LOS ANGELES — Running back Anthony
Brown has quit Southern California’s football
team, and coach Steve Sarkisian was stunned
Thursday by Brown’s apparent accusations of
racism against him on social media.
A photo of the words “Couldn’t play for a
racist man!!!!” was posted on what USC said
was Brown’s Instagram account. The posting
was later deleted.
“Sark treated me like a slave in his Office,”
was posted in the caption to the photo, along
with the hashtag “Fighton.”
Sarkisian was told about the apparent posts
from Brown, who is black, shortly after USC
finished practice Thursday. The visibly dis-
turbed coach called them “ridiculous,” saying
Brown had shown no indication he felt slight-
ed or insulted in their relationship.
“If you ask anybody in our building, any of
our players ... that’s about the furthest thing
from the truth,” Sarkisian said. “Quite honest-
l y, I’m shocked.”
Brown’s acrimonious departure is another
blow to a program already reeling from the
bizarre saga of cornerback Josh Shaw, who
was caught in a lie about the circumstances in
which he sprained both of his ankles last
weekend. Shaw has been suspended indefinite-
l y.
Brown is a senior who played cornerback for
the Trojans until this year, starting two games
in each of his first three seasons. He played in
only two games last year due to ankle injuries,
racking up nine tackles at Notre Dame before
missing the final eight games.

HOUSTON — Chris Borland made one
final case to get into the mix of 49ers line-
backers needed to replace injured NaVorro
Borland, a third-round pick from
Wisconsin, returned an interception 34
yards for a touchdown, third-string quarter-
back Josh Johnson threw three TD passes
and San Francisco beat the Houston Texans
40-13 on Thursday night.
Bowman is expected to miss at least half
the season as he recovers from a devastating
left knee injury sustained in the NFC cham-
pionship game loss to the rival Seahawks.
Michael Wilhoite is listed as the starter,
but defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said
younger players would get a “good, healthy
dose of snaps” to move up the depth chart.
Colin Kaepernick did not play for the
49ers. Blaine Gabbert played the first half
and went 4 for 11 for 60 yards before
Johnson took over.
Houston quarterbacks Case Keenum and
Tom Savage both threw interceptions as
they compete for the backup job behind
Ryan Fitzpatrick. Keenum went 8 for 17 for
70 yards and Savage went 8 for 12 for 43
Keenum got the start and started 2 for 7.
He got the Texans moving on his third
series, completing three passes to DeVier
Rookie Chris Boswell finished the drive
with a 41-yard field goal. Boswell is com-
peting with Randy Bullock for Houston's
kicking duties.
Gabbert started 1 for 4 and was sacked by
outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus on the
second-to-last play of the first quarter.
Mercilus, a late first-round pick in 2012
now backing up Jadeveon Clowney, tackled
LaMichael James behind the line on the
next play.
Savage started the second quarter for
Houston and completed his first six throws.
His first miss was a third-down toss to Mike
Thomas and Bullock kicked a 52-yard field
goal for a 6-0 lead.Gabbert completed a 32-
yard pass to Derek Carrier to finally get the
49ers moving and tossed a 14-yard TD pass

OAKLAND — With a fabulous finish to
the preseason, rookie Derek Carr created a
big question for the Oakland Raiders head-
ing into the regular season.
Carr threw three touchdown passes to make a
case he should be Oakland’s starting quarterback
as the Raiders beat the Seattle Seahawks 41-31
on Thursday night.Carr was almost perfect in
the start in place of Matt Schaub, completing 11
of 13 passes for 143 yards and led Oakland (2-2)
to four touchdowns in four drives.
Schaub was anointed the starter after
being acquired in an offseason trade from
Houston. Coach Dennis Allen hasn’t deviat-
ed from that plan even as Schaub struggled
in the preseason before resting this game
with a sore throwing elbow.
Now the question will be if Carr’s strong
performance that included one touchdown
drive against Seattle’s first-team defense will
be enough to change that plan before the
opener against the New York Jets on Sept. 7.
The Seahawks (2-2) have no questions
about their starting quarterback. Russell
Wilson made the most of a brief cameo, com-
pleting three passes for 77 yards, including a
25-yard touchdown pass to Luke Wilson on a
four-play drive to open the game.
The bigger question for the Super Bowl
champions coming into this game was
whether former Raiders quarterback Terrelle
Pryor could show enough to earn a spot on
the roster as a third quarterback.
Pryor, booed by his former fans, played his
best game of the preseason, going 11 for 17 for
134 yards and a 33-yard
touchdown pass to Phil
Bates. He also ran for 12
yards on four carries.
DeShawn Shead also
scored on a 55-yard inter-
ception return on a pass
thrown by Matt
But this night was all
about Carr. The second-
round pick out of Fresno State made the most of
the starting assignment. He completed five
passes on the opening drive, including a third-
down conversion to Denarius Moore, who was
covered by All-Pro Richard Sherman. Latavius
Murray capped the drive with a 5-yard TD run.
Carr was just getting started, leading back-
to-back one-play touchdown drives follow-
ing big special teams plays.
After a fumbled kickoff by Bryan Walters,
Carr threw a 36-yard TD pass to Moore on the
following play to give the Raiders a 14-7 lead.
TJ Carrie’s 45-yard punt return set up
Oakland’s next drive at the Seattle 20. On the
next play, Carr threw a TD pass to Mychal
Rivera, who made a great adjustment on a pass
that was deflected by Malcolm Smith.
Carr ended his night with an eight-play touch-
down drive, capping it with a perfectly placed
back-shoulder 11-yard throw to Moore. That
gave Oakland a 28-7 lead and sent the crowd into
a frenzy rarely seen in the preseason.
That ended Carr’s night and started what could
be more than a week of questions about the
opening day starter. If Carr does get the nod, it
would be the second straight year the anointed
starter in Oakland lost the job in the preseason.

San Carlos
Knights do have an under-the-radar running
game, led this year by James Hollon.
Hollon was the surprise of last season, fil l-
ing in quite nicely for recent graduate
Giancarlo Boscacci, who was not on the field
early in the season. Hollon more than made
up for the absence with a number of big per-
formances early in the year.
He got banged up midway through the sea-
son, however, and was never quite the same.
If Hollon can stay healthy, the Knights’
ground attack could provide the balance nec-
essary to keep defenses honest.
“He was kind of the guy early last season,
but got an ankle injury,” Parodi said. “He is a
very good player. We’re lucky to have him
Joining Hollon in the backfield will be
Cameron Taylor, who was the third-string
running back as a sophomore last season. He
didn’t get a lot of carries, but just the experi-
ence should be beneficial for both him and
the Knights.
“[Taylor] was the third head of the three-
headed monster last year for us,” Parodi said.
“Between the two of them (Hollon and
Taylor), we feel pretty good about our run-
ning game.”
Obviously, to be successful running the
ball, the offensive line has to do its job up
front. Seniors Stewart Allen and Ryan
Stathas, along with junior Michael Mounga,
all started for the Knights up front in 2013
and, if they can stay healthy, should provide
some continuity on the line this season.
Joining those three will be returner Tanner
Franco. Parodi is expecting newcomer junior
Daniel Medina to play a key role on the line
as well.
Allen and Stathas both started on the
defensive side, while Mounga also saw a lot
of time.
The biggest question facing the Knights is
who will handle the duties under center. Gone
is two-year starter Cole Carrithers to gradua-
tion, leaving senior Brady Mayhan and jun-
ior Brett Wetteland battling for the starting
job. Both served as backups to Carrithers
last season.
“They’re both fairly similar, which is what
is making it a good battle. What we’re going
to be looking for are the intangibles,”
Parodi said. “We’ll probably have a pretty
good indicator after our scrimmage
Whoever gets the job, he will be expected
to figure things out sooner rather than later
and Parodi won’t be using lack of experience
as an excuse.
“We’ve told the quarterbacks we’re running
our system and you better keep up. They need
to be ready to throw and do it well. I don’t
want to feel hamstrung with a rookie quarter-
back,” Parodi said. “These kids, because they
have been on varsity before, they have a bet-
ter understanding of what we want to do.”
Whoever earns the nod will have plenty of
targets to whom to throw. Shawn Charan
probably has the most production of the
returning receivers and showed flashes of
being a big-play guy last season. Also
returning are Tyler Gonzales, Vince Guidi and
Ro Mahanty. Newcomers include a pair of
transfers — Darien Concepcion and Landon
Yarber. Both had to sit out last season due to
the Central Coast Section transfer rules.
“[Charan] had a great summer improving
his game,” Parodi said.
The Knights will have to be among the
best-conditioned teams in the league because
a majority of the key offensive players will
be counted on to be the same on the defen-
sive side of the ball. One player who is
expected to play mostly defense is senior
linebacker James Tostado.
“He’s smart, headsy kid,” Parodi said. “He
always seems to go to the right place on
Despite making the jump in the competi-
tion by moving to the Ocean Division,
Parodi said the expectation remain the same:
win a division title.
“We’ve won Lake championships, now
we’re going to go try to win Ocean champi-
onships,” Parodi said.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tony Stewart will
return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night
at Atlanta Motor Speedway, ending a three-race
hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow
driver during a dirt-track race.
The three-time NASCAR champion has not
raced since his car hit Kevin Ward Jr. at an Aug.
9 sprint car event in upstate New York. Stewart
pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen
the next morning, then
skipped races at Michigan
and Bristol Motor
Stewart, who was
described by police as “vis-
ibly shaken” the night of
Ward's death, has been in
seclusion ever since.
Stewart-Haas Racing exec-
utive vice president Brett
Frood has said the emphasis was on giving
Stewart time needed to get him “in a better
place than he is.”
Stewart’s only comment since the crash was
a statement the day after the crash in which he
said “there aren’t words to describe the sadness
I feel about the accident that took the life of
Kevin Ward Jr.”
Ward had climbed from his car after it had
spun while racing for position with Stewart.
The 20-year-old walked down onto the racing
surface waving his arms in an apparent attempt
to confront Stewart.
Authorities said the first car to pass Ward had
to swerve to miss hitting him. The front of
Stewart’s car then appeared to clear Ward, but
Ward was struck by the right rear tire and hur-
tled through the air. He died of blunt force trau-
Stewart will return with a decision pending
on whether he will be charged in Ward’s death.
Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero has said
investigators did not have any evidence to sup-
port criminal intent by Stewart. Povero said
Thursday the investigation is still ongoing.

Madden NFL
15’ scores on

If you followed all the offseason NFL headlines
— concussions, racial slurs, bullying, domestic
violence — you’d think the league was in serious
Instead, it’s more popular than ever, and “Madden
NFL 15” (EA Sports, for the Xbox One, PlayStation
4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99) is here to remind
you why. It tosses you right into a high-stakes playoff
showdown, with quarterback Cam Newton and the
Carolina Panthers fighting for a late score against corner-
back Richard Sherman and the vaunted Seattle Seahawks
defense. It’s a breathless showcase for “Madden” on the
new-generation consoles, and it almost makes you forget
about the league’s horrible summer.
If your skills have gotten rusty since the Super Bowl,
you’ll appreciate the greatly enhanced Skills Trainer.
Football can be dauntingly complicated; I’ve been playing
this game for a couple of decades and I still have trouble
identifying defensive schemes, for example. Skills Trainer
takes you through almost 50 tutorials and drills, and if
that’s not enough, you can tackle the Gauntlet, 40

to absurd (like kicking a 110-yard field goal in a

After heavyweight champion
boxer Cassius Clay joined the
Nation of Islam and changed his
name to Muhammad Ali, death
threats caused the promoters to
move his much-ballyhooed
rematch against Sonny Liston to
Lewiston, Maine, in 1965.
Presented by Marin Theatre
Company, Will Power’s “Fetch
Clay, Make Man” goes behind the
scenes into Ali’s locker room as he
prepares for that fight.
He seeks help from an unlikely
source — actor Stepin Fetchit.
Fetchit, whose real name was
Lincoln Perry, had created a charac-
ter that was the epitome of a stereo-
type, laid-back and nearly shift-
less. Audiences didn’t perceive how
clever he was, but he was the first
black actor to become a million-
Ali calls Fetchit his secret strate-
gist because he had worked with
another famous fighter, Jack
Johnson. Ali wants Fetchit to teach
him the secret “anchor punch” that
Johnson had used so successfully.
Eddie Ray Jackson embodies
Ali’s dancing footwork as well as
his enormous ego. Roscoe Orman
is the canny Fetchit, who seems to
know the right thing to say and do
to protect himself and to defuse
some of the play’s tensions.
Much of that tension comes from
Jefferson A. Russell as the menac-
ing Brother Rashid, Ali’s body-
guard and strict adherent to Nation
of Islam beliefs.
Although the relationship
between Ali and his wife, Sonji
Clay (Katherine Renee Turner), is
loving at first, it becomes more
dicey when she refuses to wear
Muslim garb for women and men-
tions parts of her past.
Completing the cast is Robert
Sicular as William Fox, founder of
the Fox movie studio. He’s seen in
flashbacks as he and Fetchit nego-
tiate the actor’s contract.
Each in his own way, Ali and
Fetchit represent pioneering black
men trying to succeed in American
society. Playwright Power and
director Derrick Sanders weave
their stories and relationship into
compelling theater.
“Fetch Clay, Make Man” will
continue at Marin Theatre
Company, 397 Miller Ave., Mill
Valley, through Sept. 7. For tickets

performers in the history of the music indus-

divine intervention.”

“Hitsville U.S.A. is the nickname given to

Officials: Joan Rivers rushed to hospital
NEWYORK — Joan Rivers is in a New York
City hospital Thursday after she was rushed
from a doctor’s office when she went into car-
diac arrest, police and hospital officials said.
The 81-year-old comedian’s condition was-
n’t immediately known.
“This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to
The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York,
where she is being attended to. Her family
wants to thank everybody for their outpour-
ing of love and support,” said Sid Dinsay, a
spokesman for Mount Sinai Hospital. “We
will provide an update on her condition as it
becomes available.”
New York City police
officials, who spoke on
the condition of
anonymity because they
weren’t authorized to
publicly name Rivers,
said she was taken to the
hospital just after 9:30
a.m. Thursday. It was
unclear why she was vis-
iting the doctor’s office.

NEW YORK — The wait is finally
over: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie,
Hollywood’s reigning royal couple,
have tied the knot.
Despite two years of feverish scruti-
ny, the pair managed to keep one of
the world’s most anticipated weddings
shrouded from the media’s glare.
When? Where? Why haven’t they
yet? Did they already? The celebrity
press and “Brangelina” fans alike had
been consumed with the matrimonial
On Thursday, a spokeswoman for the
couple confirmed to the Associated
Press that they wed Saturday in a pri-
vate ceremony in Southern France. The
representative, who spoke on the con-
dition of anonymity because she was
not authorized to be quoted by name,
said Jolie and Pitt exchanged vows in a
small chapel at the Chateau Miraval in
the Provence hamlet of Correns.
Since 2008, Miraval has been the
couple’s Southern France home, a
sprawling estate they bought three
years ago.
The union was less a vow of commit-
ment than the official affirmation of
one made long ago. Pitt and Jolie have
been together nearly a decade and have
six children, all of whom participated
in the wedding.
The wedding may have been cloaked
in secrecy, but Pitt and Jolie are
preparing to be a big presence at the
movies this fall. Pitt stars in the
upcoming World War II drama “Fury, ”
due out Oct. 17. Jolie’s second directo-
rial effort, the World War II odyssey
“Unbroken,” will be released in
On Thursday, Pitt was far from any
honeymoon hideaway. Instead, he was
at the Bovington Tank Museum in
Dorset, U.K., promoting “Fury,” a bru-
tal tale about a tank of American sol-
diers rolling through Europe in the
final days of World War II.
Both movies could be major players
in Hollywood’s award season, which
last year was dominated by a film pro-
duced by Pitt, the best picture-winning
historical drama “12 Years a Slave.”
At Saturday’s ceremony, Jolie
walked the aisle with her eldest sons,
13-year-old Maddox and 10-year-old
Pax. Daughters Zahara, 9, and
Vivienne, 6, threw flower petals.
Eight-year-old Shiloh and Knox, 6,
served as ring bearers, the couple’s
spokesman said.
In advance of the nondenomination-
al civil ceremony, Pitt and Jolie
obtained a marriage license from a
local California judge. The judge also
conducted the ceremony in France.
Pitt once said that he didn’t want to
marry until gay marriage was legal
everywhere, but in recent years, the
couple had said publicly they intended
to. They were engaged in early 2012
after some seven years together.
“It’s an exciting prospect, even
though for us, we’ve gone further than
that,” Pitt told The AP in an interview
in November 2012.

The new play-calling menus are zippier,
given the difficulty of streamlining a sys-

a good job of suggesting plays that could

can even crowd-source strategy, asking
what plays other “Madden” experts like to

On the newer consoles, the player mod-

quality: If you zoom in on San Francisco
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, you
can read his tattoos. But there are some
lingering presentation issues. EA has
dumped the pregame coin flip, but you

During Scanlon’s tenure, Caltrain’s rider-
ship and farebox revenue nearly tripled,
SamTrans added new bus services and the
district implemented efficiencies to remain
stable during the recession, according to the
district’s announcement of his pending
The board urged Scanlon to stay on board
for the next few years, according to Gee.
“We are sad to see him go,” Gee said in a
prepared statement calling his retirement is
“well and entirely earned.”
With Scanlon at the helm, voters reautho-
rized the Transportation Authority’s half-
cent sales tax and Caltrain is working
toward becoming electrified.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, who
helped choose Scanlon while sitting on the
SamTrans and Caltrain boards, said he was
instrumental in the creation of Caltrain’s
baby bullet express service and turning
SamTrans into an important piece of
Peninsula transportation.
Caltrain Board Chair Tom Nolan echoed
the sentiment.
“Mike understood the intrinsic possibili-
ties of this 150-year-old rail corridor and
has led the effort to secure funding for its
reinvention and long-term future,” Nolan
said in a prepared statement.
But Scanlon’s time at SamTrans was not
without its bumps. During the recession,
financial straits led to fee hikes, station clo-
sures and scrapping the annual holiday
train, which later returned. In 2011, in
response to some public outcry over col-
lecting a $400,000 compensation package
while the three agencies he headed struggled
financially, Scanlon offered to give a por-
tion back. Bay Area Rapid Transit threat-
ened to sue SamTrans over its refusal to pay
operational costs for the SFO/Millbrae
extension since its 2003 opening although
an infusion of Measure A funds ended the
dispute. SamTrans had protested paying the
costs, saying BART’s billing used outdated
ridership estimates.
Most recently, the District Attorney’s
Office investigated SamTrans’ finances after
two former employees claimed the agency
purposely altered its books to justify seek-
ing more taxpayer money. This month,
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe closed the
case, saying there was no evidence of
wrongdoing although the district’s account-
ing practices fell short of generally used
practices. Ackemann said at the time of
Wagstaffe’s announcement that improve-
ments had been already implemented.

Grilling vegetables is magical, mostly
because the intense heat caramelizes the nat-
ural sugars in them. It transforms vegetables
from something you feel you have to eat into
something you can’t stop eating!
And grilled asparagus is one of my
favorites. Not only is it delicious, it’s also
easy to make. And you only need four things
— thick-stemmed asparagus, olive oil,
kosher salt and a hot grill.
Somewhere along the way, a culinary myth
started that thin asparagus is the best aspara-
gus. Well, the opposite is true when it comes
to grilling. The best asparagus for grilling
has a thick, sturdy stalk. In fact, many chefs
think this is true no matter how you cook it,
saying thick asparagus tends to be more ten-
der than thin asparagus.
Once you have your bunch of thick-
stemmed asparagus, you need to trim it,
wash it and dry it. You can snap or cut the
ends off the bottoms one-at-a-time, or fol-
low this restaurant prep trick. Take the
whole bunch and cut just under the bottom
rubber band. Almost always it rests at the
space where the dried ends of the stalks end.
If you think you are cutting off too much,
wiggle the band down a little.
After you cut the ends off, remove the rub-
ber bands, wash and dry the stalks, then place
them in a zip-close plastic bag. Drizzle with
olive oil, then close the bag. You can do this
up to a day in advance.
When you are ready to grill, sprinkle with
salt and place directly on the cooking grate of
the grill. You do not need a vegetable basket.
All you need is to make sure that you place the
spears across the cooking grates instead of
parallel to them. Turn occasionally until you
see blistered brown spots.
Grilled asparagus is instantly addictive and
excellent hot-off-the grill. But add a fresh
compound butter made with white wine and
lemon and you’ve got a dish worthy of any
king — or queen — of the grill!
Look for asparagus with fat, firm stalks and
deep green or purplish tips. Also check the
bottoms of the spears. If they are dried up,
chances are they have been sitting around for
too long.
Start to finish: 10 minutes
Servings: 4
1 pound fresh asparagus
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Lemon butter, to serve (see recipe below)
Heat the grill to medium and prepare for
direct heat cooking. For a charcoal grill, the
coals should be spread evenly under the grate.
For a gas grill, all burners should be on.
Trim off the tough bottoms of the spears by
grasping each end and bending it gently until
it snaps at its natural point of tenderness,
usually two-thirds of the way down the spear.
If the spear is less than 6 inches long,
chances are it has already been trimmed for
you. Alternatively, you can cut the ends off
with a knife.
Place the spears in a zip-close plastic bag.
Add the oil and massage the spears to coat
very well. Sprinkle in the salt and massage
again. Leave the asparagus in the bag until
ready to cook.
Use tongs to place the spears on the cook-
ing grate crosswise so they won’t fall
through the grates. Grill for 5 to 8 minutes,
turning occasionally to expose all sides to
the heat. The asparagus should begin to
brown in spots, but don’t let them blacken
and char. The larger the spears, the longer
they will take to cook.
Remove from the grill and serve immedi-
ately with lemon butter.
This recipe makes enough lemon butter for
16 servings. Prepare the entire batch, then
divide into quarters, freezing the portions
you don’t plan to use immediately. If tightly
wrapped in plastic, the butter will keep all
summer. It is delicious on almost any grilled
Start to finish: 10 minutes
Servings: 16
2 shallots, minced (about 4 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons white wine
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
Zest of 1/2 small lemon
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon flaked sea salt (such as Maldon)
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
In a small bowl, combine the shallots and
white wine. Let soak for 30 minutes. Drain
very well.
In a medium bowl, mash or stir the butter
until it is smooth and slightly fluffy. Add the
wine-soaked shallots, then mix well. Add the
parsley, lemon zest, garlic powder, salt and
pepper. Mix together, mashing with the back
of a fork to make sure all the ingredients are
incorporated. Adjust salt and pepper, as need-

to engage in sexual activity.” Earlier
versions of the bill had similar lan-
“With this measure, we will lead the
nation in bringing standards and pro-
tocols across the board so we can cre-
ate an environment that’s healthy,
that’s conducive for all students, not
just for women, but for young men as
well too, so young men can develop
healthy patterns and boundaries as
they age with the opposite sex,” de
Leon said before the vote.
Silence or lack of resistance does
not constitute consent. The legisla-
tion says it’s also not consent if the
person is drunk, drugged, unconscious
or asleep.
Lawmakers say consent can be non-
verbal, and universities with similar
policies have outlined examples as
maybe a nod of the head or moving in
closer to the person.
Advocates for victims of sexual
assault supported the change as one
that will provide consistency across
campuses and challenge the notion
that victims must have resisted assault
in order to have valid complaints.
Some critics say the legislation is
overreaching and sends universities
into murky, unfamiliar legal waters.
Gordon Finley, an adviser to the
National Coalition for Men, wrote an
editorial asking Brown not to sign the
bill. He argued that “this campus rape
crusade bill” presumes the guilt of the
“This is nice for the accusers —
both false accusers as well as true
accusers — but what about the due
process rights of the accused,” Finley
The bill passed the state Assembly
on Monday by a 52-16 vote. Some
Republicans in that house questioned
if statewide legislation is an appropri-
ate venue to define consent.
There was no opposition from
Senate Republicans.
“This bill is very simple; it just
requires colleges to adopt policies
concerning sexual assault, domestic
violence, gang violence and stalk-
ing,” said Sen. Anthony Cannella, R-
Ceres. “They should have already been
doing that.”
The bill would apply to all
California post-secondary schools,
public and private, that receive state
money for student financial aid. The
California State University and
University of California systems are
backing the legislation after adopting
similar consent standards this year.
The bill also requires colleges and
universities to adopt “victim-cen-
tered” sexual-assault response poli-
cies and implement comprehensive
programs to prevent assault.
In January, President Barack Obama
vowed to make the issue a priority. He
announced a task force that created a
website providing tips for filing com-
plaints, www. notalone. gov, and
issued a report in May naming 55 col-
leges and universities across the coun-
try facing investigation for their
responses to sexual abuse and vio-
lence. The University of California,
Berkeley was included on the list.

The Grammy winner wrote: “Yes, we

microbrew tasting tent, but not too
much else should be different this year,
Beeman said.
“It’s tremendously popular, so we
don’t try to change it too dramatical-
l y,” Beeman said. “It’s such a fantastic
event; people love it. It’s really a
beloved Labor Day weekend tradition
in the Bay Area.”
He notes the zip line was a huge hit
last year, so the organizers are bring-
ing it back, as it’s an incredible visual
to see.
On the food and drink front, there
will be wine from Mondavi and
Bonterra Vineyards and the microbrew
tent with beers such as Anchor Steam
IPA, Mendocino White Ale, Angry
Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider and
Anderson Valley Summer Solstice.
There will also be margaritas and moji-
tos, artisan specialty food such as
handcrafted boar, garlic fries and
grilled corn on the cob, calamari, an
organic and green product showcase,
home and garden exhibits and health
and wellness displays. Twenty-five
food purveyors will be onsite.
The event is a sort of tradition for
some, Beeman said.
“There are people who come for the
food, wine, microbrews, arts or one or
all of the above,” he said. “It’s a won-
derful outing for the whole family.
There’s something for everyone and
you can spend as much or as little as
you want.”
Lorianne Richardson,
president/CEO of the Chamber of
Commerce, agreed.
“We like to think it’s also just a real-
ly fun and wonderful way to promote
Millbrae,” she said. “It brings a lot of
feet to Millbrae.”
For the children, there will be a
music and dance showcase, along with
activities such as roll-on-water
Waterballerz, Mobile Rock’s gripping
24-foot climbing wall, train rides, the
Great Crab Grab, Speed Pitch, monster
inflatables and bouncers, ultra
thrilling carnival rides, face painting
and temporary tattoos.
Millbrae’s local TV station, MCTV,
does a lot of broadcasts during the
event that week and community groups
often participate with informational

Ukraine accused Russia on
Thursday of entering its territory
with tanks, artillery and troops,
and Western powers said Moscow
had “outright lied” about its role
and dangerously escalated the
Russia dismissed the allega-
tions, describing the fighters
there as “Russian volunteers.” The
Kremlin has repeatedly denied
arming and supporting the sepa-
ratists who have been fighting
Ukrainian troops for four months
in the gravest crisis between
Russia and the West since the end
of the Cold War.
NATO said at least 1,000
Russian troops are in Ukraine and
later released what it said were
satellite photos of Russian self-
propelled artillery units moving
last week.
Two columns of tanks and
other equipment entered south-
eastern Ukraine at midday, fol-
lowing heavy shelling of the
area from Russia that forced
overmatched Ukrainian border
guards to flee, said Col. Andriy
Lysenko, a spokesman for
Ukraine’s national security
“Russian forces have entered
Ukraine,” President Petro
Poroshenko said in Kiev, cancel-
ing a foreign trip and calling an
emergency meeting of his security
He urged Ukrainians to remain
“Destabilization of the situa-
tion and panic, this is as much of
a weapon of the enemy as tanks,”
Poroshenko told the council.
U.S. President Barack Obama
spoke with German Chancellor
Angela Merkel, and both leaders
agreed Russia must face conse-
quences for its actions.
“We agree — if there was ever
any doubt — that Russia is
responsible for the violence in
eastern Ukraine,” Obama said.
“The violence is encouraged by
Russia. The separatists are trained
by Russia, they are armed by
Russia, they are funded by
He added that Russia “has delib-
erately and repeatedly violated the
sovereignty and territorial
integrity of Ukraine, and the new
images of Russian forces inside
Ukraine make that plain for the
world to see.”
Ukraine accuses Russia of
sending in tanks, armor
By Zeina Karam

BEIRUT — The Islamic State
group killed more than 160 Syrian
government troops seized in
recent fighting, posting pictures
Thursday of terrified young con-
scripts stripped down to their
underwear before meeting their
deaths in the arid Syrian country-
The slayings were the latest
massacre attributed to the extrem-
ist group, which has terrorized
rivals and civilians alike with
widely publicized brutality in
Syria and Iraq as it seeks to expand
a proto-state it has carved out on
both sides of the border.
In southern Syria, meanwhile,
gunmen detained 43 U.N. peace-
keepers during fighting on the
Syrian side of the Golan Heights,
the United Nations said. It added
that another 81 peacekeepers were
trapped in the area by heavy clash-
es between rebels and Syrian
The mass killing of Syrian sol-
diers is part of a stepped up cam-
paign by Islamic State militants
targeting President Bashar Assad’s
forces. Until recently, the group
had been focused on eliminating
rivals among the rebels fighting to
topple him, systematically rout-
ing Western-backed opposition
fighters and other Islamic factions
from towns and villages in north-
ern and eastern Syria as it expands.
More recently, the jihadists have
turned their attention to Assad’s
forces, seizing a series of military
bases in northeastern Raqqa
province. In the process, they
have killed hundreds of pro-gov-
ernment forces, beheading some
and later displaying their severed
heads on poles and fences and
posting the pictures online.

U.N.: Ebola disease
caseload could reach 20,000
GENEVA — The Ebola outbreak
in West Africa is accelerating and
could grow six times larger to
infect as many as 20,000 people,
the World Health Organization said
Thursday. The U.N. health agency
unveiled a new road map for con-
taining the virus, and scientists
are fast-tracking efforts to find a
treatment or vaccine.
Ebola has menaced Africa for 40
years, but previously struck in
remote villages and was contained
fairly quickly. This time, it has
spread to major cities in four coun-
tries, provoking unrest as whole
neighborhoods and towns have
been sealed to the outside.
An experimental vaccine devel-
oped by the U.S. government and
GlaxoSmithKline will be tested on
humans starting next week, the
U.N.: Armed group detains
43 peacekeepers in Syria
group detained 43 U.N. peacekeep-
ers during fighting in Syria early
Thursday and another 81 peace-
keepers are trapped, the United
Nations said.
The peacekeepers were detained
on the Syrian side of the Golan
Heights during a “period of
increased fighting between armed
elements and the Syrian Arab
Armed Forces,” the office of U.N.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
said in a statement. It said another
81 peacekeepers are “currently
being restricted to their positions
in the vicinity of Ar Ruwayhinah
and Burayqah.”
