San Bruno’s future is bright with plans to
build and grow in the coming year, Mayor Jim
Ruane said at the State of the City Monday.
Tax revenue is up, development proposals
are coming in, and the city is working on
long-term plans for its water and sewer infra-
structure, Ruane said yesterday during a San
Bruno Chamber of
Commerce luncheon held
at Skyline College. Ruane
outlined a number of proj-
ects now in the works
from finishing the Transit
Corridor Plan — which is
leading to new develop-
ment ideas in and around
downtown — to continu-
ing to be involved at the state and national lev-
els on talks about utility safety.
Simply put, Ruane described many reasons
for his optimism.
Early in 2013, San Bruno will finish the
vision for the San Bruno transit corridor,
Ruane said. Work to create a plan to support
downtown started in fall 2008 but was side-
lined in 2010. Efforts to get the plan in place
are moving forward again. Despite the inter-
ruption in planning, the goals remain to pro-
mote downtown as a destination while
enhancing local character and economic vital-
ity. The vision includes embracing the eclec-
tic architecture of San Mateo Avenue, creating
large mixed-use buildings to drive traffic into
the area while supporting the community’s
cultural diversity. Part of the plan includes

Neighbors want action taken against the owners of a vacant home in Burlingame who have not maintained the property for years.
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
A long-vacant home in Burlingame’s
Lyon Hoag neighborhood has turned
into dumping ground and neighbors in
the area are sick of it.
The home, at 139 Channing Road, sits
in the middle of million-dollar homes
but neighbors fear their own property
values will be negatively impacted by
the property — which they say looks
like an overrun junk yard.
The listed owners, Michael James
O’Brien and John Quillian O’Brien,
moved out of the home several years ago
after a death in the family and have not
maintained the property, neighbors told
the Daily Journal.
Bruce Bettencourt, who lives right
next door to the house with his wife, has
called Burlingame code enforcement at
least “100 times” over the years about
rats, garbage, junk and overgrown vege-
tation on the property, he told the Daily

Slocum sworn

Former elections chief replacing
termed-out Rose Jacobs Gibson
By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Warren Slocum is no stranger to being
sworn into office — after more than two
decades as the county’s chief elections
officer and assessor-county clerk-recorder,
he has raised his hands several times to
accept another term.
But on Monday night, the retired
Slocum found himself repeating a new
oath as he was sworn in as the county
supervisor for District Four. Slocum said
he’s joining the board as the county enters
“an exciting new era” in which officials
can build a strong governmental founda-
tion for the future.
“Imagine if government was just a little
different and could excite, innovate and
inspire,” Slocum said.
Slocum, 64, took the oath, administered

Girl shot in a drive-by
Saturday incident took place

By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
A 16-year-old girl shot in Millbrae Saturday night was
standing with a group of friends near Capuchino High School
when a dark sedan drove by them, rolled down the windows
and started shooting at them, according to the San Mateo
County Sheriff’s Office.
Police are not sure at this time whether the girl was the
intended victim or whether the shooting was gang-related,
according to the Sheriff’s Office.
“The victims are not being very cooperative,” Sheriff’s

Fast-food robber suspect
returns to eat, is nabbed
PONTIAC, Mich. — Officials say a
suspected robber of a suburban Detroit
restaurant who apparently returned
months later to get some food is under
arrest after being recognized by employ-
ees.
The Oakland County sheriff’s depart-
ment says workers at a McDonald’s in

The robbery happened Oct. 5.
Cops caught egging
superior officer’s home
NEWTON, Mass. — Massachusetts
police responding to reports of teenagers
tossing eggs at a house last month got
quite a surprise when they tracked down
the suspects.
A department spokesman tells The
MetroWest Daily News the three people
who egged the house in Framingham
early Dec. 11 were fellow law enforce-
ment officers serving with the Newton
police. They were off duty at the time.
They told Framingham police the
egging incident was “a prank, a joke
between friends.”
The homeowner is a Newton police ser-
geant and their superior officer. He says is
handling the matter internally.
No charges were filed, and the Newton
officers were not publicly identified.
Mexico’s ‘grand warlock’
makes 2013 predictions
MEXICO CITY — Antonio Vazquez is
a cherubic 72-year-old with twinkling
eyes, a long white beard and a knack for
predicting things that don’t actually hap-
pen.
For more than three decades, Mexico’s
self-proclaimed “Grand Warlock” has
been doing tarot card and horoscope read-
ings to reveal what’s in store for the com-
ing year. Among past predictions: Fidel
Castro would die in 2008. Germany
would win the 2006 World Cup. Barack
Obama would lose to Mitt Romney.
Despite Vazquez’s consistently incor-
rect record of prognostication, dozens of
journalists swarmed Mexico City’s press
club on Friday for the Grand Warlock’s
latest round of predictions in what has
become one of this country’s most reli-
ably strange and inexplicably popular
New Year’s traditions.
On tap for 2013, according to the Grand
Warlock: a new war in the Middle East,
chaos in Venezuela and a tough year for
Obama.
But it’s not all bad news. Vazquez said
2013 will be a great year for Mexico, a
country that has struggled with drug vio-
lence and a slow economy.
“Mexico is going to have a relevant
place in the world, economically speak-
ing,” he said. “Mexico will place itself as
a paradise for investors.”
The thick-browed warlock also said
there will be a lot less people killed this
year in Mexico. According to some state-
ments by the current Mexican administra-
tion, at least 70,000 people were slain
between 2006 and 2012 as the govern-
ment of then President Felipe Calderon
battled drug traffickers.
After reading some of his dozens of
predictions, Vazquez took questions from
reporters and said tarot cards showed
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who
is battling cancer, will make it to his inau-
guration but that he will be dead by April.
He also said cards showed him the
death of Jenni Rivera, the Latin music
superstar who was killed Dec. 8 in a plane
crash, was not an accident.
“The plane would not have exploded
the way it did if it hadn’t been carrying a
bomb,” he said.
Investigators have not revealed any evi-
dence the plane exploded in the air.
Regardless of his shortcomings, his
readings get wide coverage in the local
media. And there have been times when
he has been spot-on.
In 2006, he predicted Calderon would
win the Mexican presidency. Last
January, the warlock accurately predicted
that the world would not end in
December, saying theories of doomsday
in 2012 were “big fat lies.”

Two people aboard a small plane were
uninjured when the aircraft rolled off the end
of a runway while landing at the San Carlos
Airport yesterday morning, Federal Aviation
Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said
Monday.
Airport business manager Chris St. Peter
said the pilot wasn’t able to stop the plane
right away upon landing around 10:15 a.m.
The nose of the single-engine Columbia
plane, registered to Harry Drajpuch out of
Scottsdale, Ariz., ended up in a slough adja-
cent to the airport, located at 620 Airport
Drive, authorities said.
The two people on board got out of the
plane without injury, Gregor said.
Rebecca Rosenblatt, San Mateo County
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, said the
occupants were both men and that the pilot is
from Arizona. The pair had flown in from the
Los Angeles area, and the pilot was appar-
ently going too fast as the plane landed, she
said.
The plane briefly touched down on the
landing strip, but then overran the runway
and got lodged in the mud in the waterway
south of the airport, she said.
FAA investigators responded to the inci-
dent, St. Peter said, and the airport will be
closed until the investigation is complete and
the plane has been removed from the water.
Airport officials did not have an estimate for
when airport operations would resume.

A 35-year-old transient sent to a state men-
tal hospital before being tried for allegedly
grabbing a woman’s ponytail and stealing a
child’s potato chips outside a Redwood City
supermarket took a plea deal for time served.
Brian Adam Christensen pleaded no contest
to misdemeanor counts of battery and petty
theft in return for a six-month jail sentence.
He has credit of 701 days, including time from
his stay in the state mental hospital, so his sen-
tence is now effectively finished.
Christensen was originally facing a Jan. 22
second-strike trial on
charges of first-degree rob-
bery, battery and resisting
arrest.
Prosecutors say
Christensen approached
the woman outside Chavez
Supermarket on Nov. 2,
2011 where she was with
her 2-year-old son and a 3-
year-old she was baby-sit-
ting for a friend.
Christensen reportedly grabbed the woman’s
hair without warning and tried pulling the
child from a carousel by the foot.
The woman kicked the man, later identified
as Christensen, and police reported he
grabbed the child’s potato chips and walked
off. Redwood City police arrested Christensen
nearby after a struggle in which he spit at and
tried to head butt an officer.

County looking
for volunteers to
count homeless
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
San Mateo County is looking for a few good men (and
women) — actually, make that 250 of them.
The county needs 250 volunteers to count the homeless
for its biennial census later this month. The Jan. 24 count,
which is federally mandated, involves teams of workers
heading out on foot and in cars to count the homeless in
their assigned areas. The data is required by the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development and used
locally to design homeless services.
“The census is a huge undertaking and an important one,”
said Supervisor Carole Groom, who co-chairs the county’s
HOPE committee, or Housing Our People Effectively.
Supervisor Don Horsley, the other co-chair, is also urging
participation.
“This information is vital to understanding and ending
homelessness in our county,” Horsley said in a prepared
statement.
Horsley said volunteering not only helps the county but
also offers a firsthand look at the issue of homelessness.
Both supervisors participated in the last two counts,
including 2011 when volunteers identified 2,149 homeless
people living in San Mateo County. That number was up
from 1,796 in 2009 and the greatest increase — 83 percent
— was among people living in cars, recreational vehicles
and encampments.
Those interested in participating can register at
www.smchsa.eventbrite.com or contact the Human Services
Agency’s Center on Homelessness at
homelesscensus@smchsa.org or 802-7656. Volunteers must
be at least 18 years of age and participate in a 90-minute
training which will be held at locations throughout the coun-
ty from Jan. 9-15.

SACRAMENTO — Lawmakers
returned to the Capitol on Monday with
a wide-ranging agenda that includes
revisions to school funding, gun control
laws and environmental regulations.
The Senate and Assembly opened
their two-year session with Democrats
firmly in control of both houses. The
party’s supermajorities will allow them
to approve taxes and fees without GOP
support, as well as override gubernatori-
al vetoes.
“There are so many issues to take up
here that we will not lack for a lot of
work to do,” Senate President Pro Tem
Darrell Steinberg told reporters.
Legislators will address the state’s water
and transportation network, education
funding, gun control, getting more help
for the mentally ill, and complying with
the federal Affordable Care Act, he said.
Republicans say they want to ensure
that the sales and income tax increases
voters approved in November through
Proposition 30 are spent on education, as
Gov. Jerry Brown and supporters prom-
ised during the election campaign.
Assembly Minority Leader Connie
Conway, R-Tulare, said Republicans
should be the “conscience” of the
Legislature on spending and other
reforms. She said she is encouraged by
the proposals to make changes to educa-
tion policy and funding.
“It’s something that I’ve always hoped
we could do as legislators, and that is
spend more time focusing on really
important issues and less on trivial little
bills that seem to get in the way of other
things,” Conway said.
In addition to education, Conway said
priorities include revisions to an $11 bil-
lion water bond that is set to go before
voters in 2014 and modernizing the
state’s complex environmental regula-
tions.
The statewide sales tax increase and
an income tax increase on those making
$250,000 a year or more are expected to
generate an estimated $6 billion a year.
That revenue and an improving econo-
my mean there is likely to be less drama
surrounding the state budget proposal
Brown will release later this week.
The state’s nonpartisan budget analyst
projects a deficit of less than $2 billion
in the fiscal year that begins July 1 and
the possibility of surpluses after that.
Lawmakers face broad agenda

OAKLAND — A California assembly-
woman introduced a bill on Monday that
aims to regulate ammunition sales.
The measure, AB48, would establish
restrictions similar to those covering gun
sales, including requiring sellers to be
licensed and buyers to have and show
valid identification.
“When we have so many safeguards in
place around the purchase of guns, why is
it so much easier to buy bullets, the things
that make guns deadly?”
Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner asked
as she unveiled the measure during a
news conference outside her office in
Oakland.
“Today, it is easier in California to buy
bullets than it is to buy alcohol, cigarettes
or Sudafed cold medicine. We’ve had
enough,” she said.
Joined by a coalition of lawmakers, law
enforcement officials and community
leaders, Skinner, D-Berkeley, said the bill
she introduced late last month and co-
authored with Assemblyman Rob Bonta,
D-Alameda, would also ban clip kits that
can convert guns into assault weapons.

SAN FRANCISCO — An empty
oil tanker caused minor damage
Monday when it struck a tower in the
middle of the San Francisco-
Oakland Bay Bridge while navigat-
ing beneath the hulking span, offi-
cials said.
The 752-foot Overseas Reymar
from the Marshall Islands rammed
the tower about 11:20 a.m. as it
headed out to sea, according to the
Coast Guard and state transportation
officials. The impact didn’t affect
traffic on the busy bridge — the main
artery between San Francisco and
Oakland, Ney said.
The parent company that owns the
ship, OSG Ship Management Inc.,
said the accident occurred as the ves-
sel hit an underwater portion of the
massive bridge structure.
Investigators late Monday had not
determined the cause of the crash.
“There’s always the human fac-
tor,” Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Shawn
Lansing said. “That is again what
we’ll look into and see whether, in
fact, it was a human error or some-
thing else and take that into consid-
eration in the development of future
regulation.”
Visibility at the time of the colli-
sion was about a quarter-mile, but
officials didn’t say if that was a fac-
tor.
There was no timetable for com-
pleting the investigation, Lansing
said. The crew and captain of the
ship will undergo drug and alcohol
testing, per federal regulations.
Inspectors also will examine the hull
of the ship above and below water,
Lansing said.
The mishap damaged about 30 to
40 feet of fender of steel and wood-
en timbers built onto the span to
absorb the brunt of a ship’s collision,
said California Department of
Transportation spokesman Bart Ney.
The incident brought back memo-
ries of a major crash in 2007 that
spilled 53,000 gallons of oil into the
Bay.
Tanker strikes Bay Bridge

CHICAGO — With no signs of
trauma and nothing to raise suspi-
cions, the sudden death of a
Chicago man just as he was about to
collect nearly $425,000 in lottery
winnings was initially ruled a result
of natural causes.
Nearly six months later, authori-
ties have a mystery on their hands
after medical
e x a m i n e r s ,
responding to a
relative’s pleas,
did an expanded
screening and
determined that
Urooj Khan, 46,
died shortly
after ingesting a
lethal dose of
cyanide. The finding has triggered a
homicide investigation, the Chicago
Police Department said Monday.
“It’s pretty unusual,” said Cook
County Medical Examiner Stephen
Cina, commenting on the rarity of
cyanide poisonings. “I’ve had one,
maybe two cases out of 4,500
autopsies I’ve done.”
In June, Khan, who owned a num-
ber of dry cleaners, stopped in at a
7-Eleven near his home in the West
Rogers Park neighborhood on the
city’s North Side and bought a tick-
et for an instant lottery game.
Ashur Oshana, the convenience
store clerk, told the Associated
Press on Monday that Khan said he
had sworn off gambling after
returning from the hajj, a Muslim
pilgrimage, in Saudi Arabia. Khan
said he wanted to lead a better life,
Oshana said, but Khan bought the
tickets that day and scratched off the
winner in the store.

G
irl Scouts of the mid-Peninsula
have taken charitable holiday giving
to the next level. For the third year in
a row, the scouts donated shoes to homeless
children — but not just any shoes. These shoes
are brand new and personally selected to fit
every child’s shoe size, style and color prefer-
ence.
Around 500 scouts from 31 troops in
Portola Valley, Woodside, Atherton, Menlo
Park and East Palo Alto partnered with the
local nonprofit homeless provider InnVision
Shelter Network to provide shoes to every
child at IVSN’s family transitional shelters —
more than 300 children.
In collaboration with IVSN shelter staff, the
Girls Scouts collected measurements and shoe
requests, then went out to shop for each indi-
vidual child. Some troops used funds from
their nut and cookie sales to purchase the
shoes. After the shoes were purchased, the
s c o u t s
wrapped them
in festive holi-
day paper and
delivered them
to the shelters
by Dec. 20.
“Shoppi ng
for shoes is an
excellent tie-in
to several Girl
Scout badges,”
said Clara Morse, Cadette Scout from
Portola Valley. “But the real reason we do this
is because these kids need shoes that fit them
to wear to school.”

WASHINGTON — Digging in
for a fight, President Barack Obama
riled Senate Republicans and some
Democrats, too, on Monday by
nominating former senator and
combat veteran Chuck Hagel to lead
the Pentagon and anti-terrorism
chief John Brennan as the next
director of the Central Intelligence
Agency.
Hagel and Brennan, in separate
Senate confirmation hearings, will
face sharp questions on a range of
contentious issues, including U.S.
policy about Israel and Iran, target-
ed drone attacks and harsh interro-
gation tactics. Of the two men,
Hagel is expected to face a tougher
path, though both are likely to be
confirmed.
Hagel would be the first enlisted
soldier and first Vietnam veteran to
head the Pentagon.
“These two leaders have dedicat-
ed their lives to protecting our coun-
try,” Obama said, standing along-
side them and the men they would
succeed during a ceremony in the
White House East Room. “I urge
the Senate to confirm them as soon
as possible so we can keep our
nation secure and the American
people safe.”
For Obama, a pair of combative
confirmation hearings could turn
into a distraction as he opens his
second term. But the president sig-
naled he was ready to take that risk.
Hagel, a former Republican sena-
tor from Nebraska, has been criti-
cized as hostile toward Israel and
soft on Iran. Opponents also have
highlighted his 1998 comments
about an ambassador nominee
whom he called “openly, aggres-
sively gay” — a comment for which
he recently apologized.

JERUSALEM — President
Barack Obama’s nomination of
Chuck Hagel as the next U.S. sec-
retary of defense is causing jitters
in Israel, where some circles view
the former Nebraska senator as
unsympathetic or even hostile.
Hagel’s positions on Israel’s two
most pressing foreign policy issues
— Iran’s nuclear program and rela-
tions with the Palestinians —
appear to be at odds with the Israeli
government, and critics here fear
the appointment could increase
pressure on the Jewish state to
make unwanted concessions. The
appointment could also signal fur-
ther strains in what is already a
cool relationship between
President Barack Obama and
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Ne t a n y a h u ,
who is expected
to win re-elec-
tion later this
month.
“Because of
his statements
in the past, and
his stance
toward Israel,
we are wor-
ried,” Reuven
Rivlin, the speaker of the Israeli
parliament and a member of
Netanyahu’s Likud Party, told the
Associated Press. But, he added,
the strategic partnership between
the U.S. and Israel is strong and
“one person doesn’t determine pol-
icy.”
Netanyahu’s office refused to
comment on the appointment, as
did officials in the Israeli foreign
and defense ministries.

WASHINGTON — The Obama
administration spent more money
on immigration enforcement in the
last fiscal year than all other federal
law enforcement agencies com-
bined, according to a report on the
government’s enforcement efforts
from a Washington think tank.
The report on Monday from the
Migration Policy Institute, a non-
partisan group focused on global
immigration issues, said in the 2012
budget year that ended in
September the government spent
about $18 billion on immigration
enforcement programs run by
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement, the US-Visit pro-
gram, and Customs and Border
Protection, which includes the
Border Patrol. Immigration
enforcement topped the combined
budgets of the FBI; Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives; Drug Enforcement
Administration and U.S. Secret
Service by about $3.6 billion dol-
lars, the report’s authors said.
Since then-President Ronald
Reagan signed the Immigration
Reform and Control Act in 1986 —
which legalized more than 3 million
illegal immigrants and overhauled
immigration laws — the govern-
ment has spent more than $187 bil-
lion on immigration enforcement.

ments of an international roadmap

OPINION 9
Tuesday • Jan. 8, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
Letters to the editor
By Kevin Mullin
P
olitics has been called the “art of the
possible,” yet for too long at the state
Capitol, bipartisan progress on the
state’s intractable problems has been elusive.
However, with a historic 2012 election cycle,
the political planets have aligned to create an
extraordinary opportunity to improve gover-
nance in the state of California.
When the 2013-14 legislative session con-
venes this week, I’ll be joined by a bumper
crop of 38 other newly elected assembly-
members. This represents a turnover of near-
ly half of the 80-member Assembly, due in
large part to the decennial redistricting
process. I am honored to represent the 12
cities that comprise the newly configured
22nd Assembly District, including Brisbane,
part of South San Francisco, Pacifica, San
Bruno, Millbrae, Hillsborough, Burlingame,
San Mateo, Belmont, Foster City, San Carlos
and Redwood City, as well as unincorporated
communities.
2012 was also the year of the “Top Two”
June primary, which promised more moder-
ates being elected to the Legislature. Primary
voters also chose to reform term limits in the
Legislature, reducing overall allowed service
from 14 years to 12 years, but enabling
members to serve all of those years in one
house, or a combination of both houses. That
means many fellow assembymembers could
serve up to 12 years in the Assembly instead
of the previous six-year limit. A doubling of
service time allowed in the Assembly has the
potential to be transformative as members
can build relationships and have more time to
engage in longer-term, thoughtful policymak-
ing.
Democrats in
Sacramento unexpectedly
achieved a two-thirds
supermajority in both
houses of the Legislature.
Despite this supermajori-
ty, and maybe even
because of it, the need for
bipartisan cooperation and
problem-solving
approaches to governing have never been
more important. With the passage of
Proposition 30 and its promise of new rev-
enue to bring about a balanced approach (tax
revenue and budget cuts) to a balanced budg-
et, it is my sincere hope the Legislature will
move away from crisis-driven decisions and
begin focusing on longer-term challenges.
Given this significantly altered landscape,
the Legislature is positioned to address tax
reforms, fiscal sustainability, governance
reforms and rebuilding faith in the
Legislature as an institution. The state-local
fiscal relationship also is ripe for restructur-
ing, especially in light of the state’s elimina-
tion of redevelopment agencies, which were
important tools for local governments to revi-
talize blighted areas and encourage growth
near public transit. As a former local govern-
ment official, I believe many decisions are
best made at our city, county and school
board level, where elected officials are most
in tune with community needs and where the
public feels most connected. I will work with
my colleagues to devolve fiscal autonomy
and authority to the local level, and rebuild
the relationship between the state and locali-
ties.
San Mateo County is also home to key
industries like biotech and high-tech which
are driving the state’s innovation economy.
Job creation strategies and workforce devel-
opment programs aimed at these and other
industries, as well as investing in public
infrastructure (like an electrified Caltrain)
that support our county’s economic well-
being, will be essential to restoring and
expanding opportunities locally and
statewide. Adequate funding of education at
all levels, from early childhood education to
our higher education system, will certainly
be a legislative priority for many members
myself included.
Thank you for the extraordinary opportuni-
ty to play a role along with the incoming
class of freshman, in partnership with our
veteran colleagues, to restore public trust in
state government in addressing our most
challenging problems. I welcome your opin-
ions and feedback on how I may best serve
your interests.
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South San
Francisco, is the newly elected representative
of Assembly District 22, which encompasses
northern and central San Mateo County, and
was named assistant speaker pro tempore.
Mullin’s district office is located at 1528 South
El Camino Real, Suite 302, San Mateo, CA

Where does power for
electrified Caltrain come from?
Editor,
Irvin Dawid’s column in the Dec. 22 week-
end addition of the Daily Journal entitled
“Caltrain Moving ‘Beyond Oil’” is good on
paper. It seems Dawid believes the way to
solve much of California’s transportation
problems is by electrifying Caltrain. Only
question I have for Dawid and others who
support this is, again, where is the electricity
going to come from? No one wants to answer
that question. As I have said in the past, the
first thing for the proponents to consider is
where, in fact, is the electricity going to
come from?
I recently read that a utility company in
California signed a 20-year contract with a
Nevada solar company to supply electricity at
a fixed cost (I’m sure its not going to be
cheap). All well and good. But where is the
power going to come from when the sun
doesn’t shine in Nevada? The backup sys-
tems needed are very expensive and will only
supply power for a limited amount of time.
Further, as barren as Nevada is, where is the
cooling water going to come from to take
care of the waste heat that has to be dissipat-
ed. Otherwise, the solar array will not work
as efficiently as it should.
This does not mean the power this compa-
ny agreed to purchase is going to be used for
Caltrain, but it brings up more unanswered
questions. There are already to many unan-
swered questions about the electrifying of
Caltrain and where the power is going to
come from.

Shame on Horsley
Editor,
Letter writer Jerry Terstiege is absolutely
correct about Don Horsley’s reneging on his
promise to forgo his salary as a county super-
visor. Horsley’s current pension of $215,000
a year, plus generous benefits, is added to the
$120,000 pay, plus more benefits, of being a
supervisor — bringing his annual income to
$335,000 — again, with perks and benefits
almost no one in the private sector has.
Horsley claims he is not “rich” and needs
the additional $120,000 per year to pay for
his mother-in-law’s medical care. What in
heaven’s name does he think his constituents
do when their parents need care? Reach into
someone else’s pockets to pick up the tab?
He feels justified in taking the extra $120K
because the county is financially better off
than it was. The only reason San Mateo
County is doing “better” is because taxpayers
(through Measure A) added another half-cent
to the county sales tax to prevent onerous
cuts to services for the poor and needy. I
guess Horsley decided his “needs” were
greater than those of his constituents. Shame
on him.

A new day at the state capitol
Sweet tooth
“N
ick went to the dentist.” The
proclamation always snakes its
way through the newsroom
with such lightning speed and delight a casual
observer would think it odd so many people
have a keen inter-
est in the produc-
tion manager’s
dental habits. After
all, it’s not as if
“Michelle remem-
bered to floss” ever
gets shared en
masse even though
I might be pretty
personally proud
for trying to mini-
mize the usual
upcoming lies to
my hygienist. But
even hours after the majority of the staff have
wandered in for the day, we make sure the
stragglers, late-comers and folks with late-
night schedules are well-informed of Nick’s
tooth time.
“Just so you know,” we offer, “Nick went to
the dentist today. Didn’t want you to be left
out.”
“Are there still some left?” is the common
response before the newly enlightened make a
beeline for the office kitchen where inside a
pink cardboard box bursts with carby, sugary
deliciousness.
You see, “Nick went to the dentist” is the
office’s collective code for doughnuts. The
eagle might fly at midnight but in our world,
no amount of skullduggery and Bond-like
hints carry the same weight than word that our
coworker has taken a trip to the dentist.
The visit could be for a cleaning. Maybe
fillings. Implants even — and goodness knows
those require multiple returns. Perhaps he just
likes the dentist’s company. In any case, every
time he goes, Nick without fail brings a box
of doughnuts into the office.
The surprise is both heartwarming and
stomach-churning, particularly in the cold
light of New Year’s resolutions involving
health and fitness. The doughnuts always have
tended to show up on the days when I come
toting something I convince myself is healthy
for lunch or when I’ve actually taken the time
to eat breakfast before heading into work. Of
course, I and everybody else who similarly
struggles with the doughnut tug-of-war could
simply say no. We could just not go into the
kitchen, not choose the perfect chocolate
glazed or ponder the novelty of opting for an
old-fashioned just to mix things up a bit.
But that’s just silly talk. In the face of the
doughnuts, I am weak. Doughnuts, I will say,
are not something I seek out. I will never be
the one heading into the local shops to pick
out the best dozen or even commit to one sim-
ple treat. But if they are present, there is no
way I’m not indulging even with the knowl-
edge that doughnut regret will sink in about
40 minutes after the last bite.
Coupled with the weeks of holiday goodies
that find their way into the office — are there
any boxes of See’s candy or plates of cookies
that didn’t end up on my desk in December?
— the doughnuts are just another nail in the
healthy new year coffin.
As I bemoaned my simultaneous love and
hatred for this ritual after last week’s post-
dentist delivery, Nick sank his teeth into his
third doughnut which is obviously not a prob-
lem for a man who still looks good in stick-
thin leather pants.
“Look at it this way,” he reasoned. “At least
you’ve only had one doughnut so far this
year.”
Good point.
Thank you, Nick, for being a guy who sees
the glass half-filled even if that cup should be
a coffee mug to better accompany the snacks.
And thanks for showing that even the most
loathsome of chores can be dressed in a silver
lining, even if this sweet tooth reward for see-
ing the dentist might hurry along my own
need for a visit.

NEW YORK — Investors started the
week on a cautious note, pulling the
Standard & Poor’s 500 index down
from the five-year high it reached
Friday.
The move lower on Monday is likely
the result of traders taking some win-
nings off the table after the stock mar-
ket’s surge last week, said Sam Stovall,
chief equity strategist at S&P Capital
IQ.
Investors are also preparing for cor-
porate America’s seasonal parade of
earnings reports, which starts Tuesday.
“You can summarize it as profit-tak-
ing and preparation,” Stovall said.
“Investors are digesting some of those
gains from last week and positioning
themselves so they’re not too far
extended if fourth-quarter earnings slip
a bit.”
The S&P 500 fell 4.58 points to close
at 1,461.89.
The Dow Jones industrial average
lost 50.92 points to 13,384.29, while
the Nasdaq composite dropped 2.84
points to 3,098.81.
The S&P 500 soared 4.6 percent last
week, ending Friday at a five-year
high. The government reported that
hiring held up in December during the
tense budget negotiations in
Washington, with employers adding
155,000 jobs during the month.
Investors celebrated to start the year
as lawmakers passed a bill to avoid a
combination of government spending
cuts and tax increases that came to be
known as the “fiscal cliff.” The law
passed late Tuesday night avoided the
full force of the budget cuts, which
could have dragged the economy into a
recession.
Investors are now shifting their focus
to corporate profits. Aluminum produc-
er Alcoa launches the reporting season
for the fourth quarter of 2012 after the
market closes on Tuesday.
Analysts forecast that companies in
the S&P 500 will report that quarterly
earnings increased 3.3 percent com-
pared with the same period the year
before, according to S&P Capital IQ.
But all the events that took place in the
last three months of 2012 —
Superstorm Sandy, the presidential
election, and worries about the narrow-
ly avoided “fiscal cliff” — could make
for some surprises.
JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America
and others banks agreed to pay $8.5
billion to settle federal complaints that
they foreclosed on people who should
have been allowed to stay in their
homes. Bank stocks ended the day lit-
tle changed.
In a separate agreement, Bank of
America settled with the government-
owned mortgage finance company
Fannie Mae over mortgage investments
that lost value during the real-estate
crash. BofA’s stock fell 2 cents to
$12.09.
In other trading, the yield on the 10-
year Treasury note was 1.90 percent.
The yield on the note hit an eight-
month high of 1.97 percent in intraday
trading Friday, according to prices
from Tradeweb, an operator of fixed-
income markets.

CES unveils TVs with
‘ultrahigh definition’
By Ryan Nakashima
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAS VEGAS — The race to make televisions larger and
larger has created a colossal problem for manufacturers: As
screens grow, picture quality worsens — unless the viewer
moves farther away from the screen.
The issue is playing out in cozy dens and family rooms
around the world. To get the full benefit of a large high-defini-
tion screen, viewers must move back from their sets. Because
the ideal viewing distance is no closer than three times the
height of your screen, or about one and a half times the diag-
onal length, big televisions have literally forced many fami-
lies’ backs against the wall.
This year, television makers are doing their best to give
huge-screen fanatics more breathing room. New “ultrahigh-
definition” sets were shown off Monday by companies such as
LG Electronics Inc., Sharp Corp. and Samsung Electronics
Co. at the International CES gadget show in Las Vegas.
Consumers tend to buy a new set every seven years or so,
and television manufacturers are hoping the technology will
give consumers a reason to upgrade.
television makers are also making their sets smarter. New
television s from Samsung, for instance, will recognize an
expanded range of gestures so people can swipe through on-
screen menus in a way that revolutionizes the old remote con-
trol.
Samsung President Boo-Keun Yoon said the new features
are a response to the increased choices consumers have in
what they watch.
“We have developed TVs that respond to people’s needs and
lifestyles, TVs that know in advance what people want to
watch, TVs that have the power to create the ultimate lean-
back experience,” Yoon said.

NEW YORK — Bank of America
reached an $11.6 billion settlement with
government mortgage agency Fannie
Mae to settle claims resulting from mort-
gage-backed investments that soured
during the housing crash, bringing it a
step closer to clearing up its legacy of
bad home loans.
Under the deal announced Monday,
Bank of America will pay $3.6 billion in
cash to Fannie Mae and buy back $6.75
billion in loans that the bank and its
Countrywide Financial unit sold to the
agency from Jan. 1, 2000 through Dec.
31, 2008. That includes about 30,000
loans. The bank is also paying $1.3 bil-
lion to the agency for failing to deal with
foreclosures fast enough.
Also Monday, a separate settlement
was announced between federal regula-
tors and ten major banks and mortgage
companies, including Bank of America,
over wrongful foreclosure practices.
That $8.5 billion settlement covers up to
3.8 million people who were in foreclo-
sure in 2009 and 2010. Of those, about
400,000 may be entitled to payments,
advocates estimate.
For Bank of America, its own settle-
ment with Fannie Mae over the mort-
gage investments represents a “a signifi-
cant step” in resolving the bank’s
remaining mortgage problems, Bank of
America CEO Brian Moynihan said in a
statement. Moynihan’s predecessor, Ken
Lewis, bought Countrywide, a troubled
mortgage-lending giant, in July 2008
just as the financial crisis was taking
hold.
The settlement represents “another
step closer to normal,” for Bank of
America, Wells Fargo analyst Matt
Burnell wrote in a note to clients.
Burnell said the deal was good for the
bank because it resolved a dispute with a
government agency and will likely
reduce the provisions it has to set aside
to cover claims from investors over
faulty mortgages that were sold with
incorrect data on home values or
income.
BofA in mortgageclaims settlement
By Daniel Wagner
and Christopher S. Rugaber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — U.S. banks have
taken another step to clear away the
wreckage of the 2008 financial crisis by
agreeing to pay $8.5 billion to settle
charges that they wrongfully foreclosed
on millions of homeowners.
The deal announced Monday could
compensate hundreds of thousands of
Americans whose homes were seized
because of abuses such as “robo-sign-
ing,” when banks automatically signed
off on foreclosures without properly
reviewing documents. The agreement
will also help eliminate huge potential
liabilities for the banks.
But consumer advocates complained
that regulators settled for too low a price
by letting banks avoid full responsibility
for foreclosures that victimized families
and fueled an exodus from neighbor-
hoods across the country.
The settlement ends an independent
review of loan files required under a
2011 action by regulators. Bruce Marks,
CEO of the advocacy group
Neighborhood Assistance Corp. of
America, noted that ending the review
will cut short investigations into the
banks’ practices.
“The question of who’s to blame —
the homeowners or the lenders — if you
stop this investigation now, that will
always be an open-ended question,”
Marks said.
The banks, which include JPMorgan
Chase, Bank of America and Wells
Fargo, will pay about $3.3 billion to
homeowners to end the review of fore-
closures.
The rest of the money — $5.2 billion
— will be used to reduce mortgage bills
and forgive outstanding principal on
home sales that generated less than bor-
rowers owed on their mortgages.
A total of 3.8 million people are eligi-
ble for payments under the deal
announced by the Office of Comptroller
of the Currency and the Federal Reserve.
Those payments could range from a few
hundred dollars to up to $125,000.
U.S. banks try to clean up remaining mortgage mess
By Candice Choi

NEW YORK — First there were
McNuggets. Then there were Chicken
McBites. Now McDonald’s could be
adding “Mighty Wings” to its chicken
menu.
The world’s biggest hamburger chain is
set to expand its test of chicken wings to
Chicago this week, after a successful run
in Atlanta last year. The wings are being
sold in servings of three, five or 10 pieces
with prices starting at $3, according to
Lynne Collier, an analyst with Sterne
Agee.
A spokeswoman for McDonald’s con-
firmed the test in Chicago would start this
week at about 500 restaurants but said
there weren’t any plans yet to bring the
wings to other cities. She noted that no
new sauces were being offered with the
wings and that the creamy ranch sauce
would be the default dipping sauce.
Fast-food chains typically test items in
select markets before taking them nation-
al. But for McDonald’s, which has 14,000
U.S. locations, adding chicken wings to
the permanent lineup could be tricky.
Prices for chicken wings have been
climbing over the past year, reflecting an
increase in the number of restaurants
serving them, said David Harvey, an agri-
culture economist who specializes in
poultry and eggs at the U.S. Department
of Agriculture.

T
he Westmoor and Half Moon Bay
boys’ basketball teams are both
expected to be in the race for the
Peninsula Athletic League North Division
title this year and will meet in an early-sea-
son showdown Wednesday.
A game of this magnitude deserves a spe-
cial atmosphere and it
won’t get any better than
Oracle Arena, home of
the Golden State
Warriors. That’s right —
the Rams and Cougars
will be driving across a
bridge and heading to
Oakland.
“It’s not a bad gig,”
said Half Moon Bay
coach Rich Forslund. “I
was (eager for the
chance to play at
Oracle). I thought it
would be a great oppor-
tunity for our kids.”
Both schools are required to buy 200-plus
tickets, which they then resold on campus.
The tickets not only get fans in the door for
the high school matchup, but are also good
for Wednesday night’s Warriors game, which
also happens to be Stephen Curry
Bobblehead Night.
“We’ll probably have 100-plus people at
our game,” Forslund said. “We’re going to

Aragon soccer takes down South City
49ers prepared
for the playoffs
By Julio Lara
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
The Aragon boys’ soccer team knows one
speed and one speed only — fast.
So when South San Francisco High School
executed a perfect set piece and Rogelio Lopez
scored to take 1-0 lead 17 minutes into the
game, the Dons didn’t panic. They just turned
on the jets.
“We have a really offensive-minded team,”
said Aragon head coach Greg Markoulakis.
“And in the preseason, we’ve been playing with
some injuries. We’re just getting some people
back into the mold. We’re going to be playing
an attacking style of football. So, being one
goal down, mentally doesn’t affect them.”
The Dons equalized 15 minutes after South
City’s goal on a Jordan Lim corner kick volley
and, two minutes after that, took the lead on a
Ranier Platinos’ counter attack score. It was a
momentum shift they used to come away with
a 3-2 win in the Peninsula Athletic League
Ocean Division opener.
“They lost focus after that first goal,” said
South City head coach Daniel Flores. “They
put their heads down after those two quick
goals and that turned the whole game. We just
had to play catchup after that.”
South City’s hole got even deeper shortly
after Osmar Romano fed Aldo Severson who
then laid the ball off to Platinos only to see No.
9 bury his shot perfectly to the lower right of
the South City goal. Five minutes later,
Romano showed great skill and capitalized on
a dead ball opportunity just inside 30 yards in
the 37th minute. No. 10 floated a ball just out
of Cesar Gomez’s reach to give Aragon the 3-1
lead heading into recess.

The Peninsula Athletic League basketball
season kicks off today with play in the PAL
North Division.
The PAL North boys’ division appears to a
three-team race for the division title, while the
girls’ side appears to be fairly wide open.
On the boys’ side, Half Moon Bay and
Westmoor each posted 11-1 preseason
records, while El Camino — the defending
PAL tournament champion — compiled an 8-
4 mark. Terra Nova, at 7-5, was the only other
North Division team to post a winning presea-
son record. South City, Jefferson and Oceana
all had losing records during the non-league
portion of the schedule.
“Westmoor definitely looks good. Half
Moon Bay looks really good. They‘re going to
be a team to be reckoned with,” said El
Camino coach Archie Junio. “I just feel we
have to be ready for every game. I tell [the
team] every game is a big game.”
The division title will go through El Camino
which, after winning the PAL tournament
title, advanced to the Central Coast Section
Division III championship game last season.
The Colts return arguably the top two players
in the PAL in forward Michael Smith and
point guard Elijah White. Both are averaging
more than 20 points a game, with Smith pour-
ing in an average of 24 points per game while
White is averaging 21. Smith is also pulling
down nearly 11 rebounds per contest.
Junio said the Colts’ biggest task this season
is finding a few players to complement Smith
and White. The Colts lost most of their front-
court to graduation, who represented their
third and fourth scoring options last year,
most notably Anthony Knight and Jalen
Bitanga.
“We have options. It’s just a matter of them
taking shots,” Junio said. “The skill is there.
They just have to take [shots] with confidence.
We’ve been pushing on that and hopefully
they start scoring a little bit.”
Half Moon Bay also advanced to the finals
of CCS, falling to Sacred Heart Prep in
Division IV. Coach Rich Forslund, in just two
years with the Cougars, has turned the pro-
gram into a legitimate power, having posted

SANTA CLARA— Andy Lee’s nerves
came on a full day before San Francisco’s
playoff opener a year ago, not just leading up
to his first punt as is typically the case each
game. Tight end Vernon Davis was surprised
at his butterflies stepping onto the NFL’s big
stage for the first time, too.
Last January, most of the 49ers had never
been part of a playoff game and were suiting
up for a rookie NFL coach. So much was
made of the playoff inexperience at the time.
Now, it’s just the opposite.
These days, Jim Harbaugh’s team is a play-
off-tested bunch of veterans determined to
make this a special postseason run that goes
one step further — to the Super Bowl.
The NFC West champion Niners (11-4-1)
can move closer to that goal when they host
the Green Bay Packers in the divisional play-
offs on Saturday night in a rematch of the sea-
son opener won 30-22 by San Francisco in
September at Lambeau Field.
“A lot of guys don’t know what it’s like
until they get out there,” Davis said. “For me,
last year was kind of like, ‘Wow!’ The energy,
the atmosphere was on a whole other level. If

When it comes to handling attention
from the media, San Mateo High School’s
Alejandro Mendoza is still getting used to
things.
When asked what his goals were for the
upcoming soccer season, the young man
who sports No. 19 on the pitch responded
very matter-of-factly, “score more goals
than last year.” And then he flashed a
smile.
When you’re a young, budding star, it
can be that simple.
And so it appears that, until the sopho-
more gets used to having a voice recorder
in his face, Mendoza will be more than
happy allowing his feet and head to all the
talking we need.
And that’s fine by us.
Mendoza was at his sharpest last week
in San Mateo’s win over Aragon High
School. In that game, No. 19 scored every
way imaginable and led the Bearcats to a
4-1 victory with a hat trick.
For his efforts, Mendoza is the San
Mateo Daily Journal Athlete of the Week.
“He came up past the second half of last
season,” said San Mateo head coach
Chuck Callaghan. “He was a freshman. I
thought he could help us on the wing and
he did.
“He’s got a great finishing touch. He got
a game ball, if we actually gave one out,
last week. And he would have got it this
week, too, with his three goals. He’s play-
ing really well.”
He’s not only playing well but at an
atypical pace for players Mendoza’s age.

MIAMI GARDENS — Alabama
romped to its second consecutive
BCS championship, and third in
four seasons, beating No. 1 Notre
Dame 42-14 in a BCS champi-
onship game that was no classic
after all.
AJ McCarron threw four touch-
down passes and Eddie Lacy ran for
140 yards and scored twice for the
second-ranked Crimson Tide, which
scored on its first three drives and
cruised to the second-most lopsided
BCS championship game victory
Monday night.
Alabama (13-1) became the third
team to win three national titles in
four seasons since polls started
being used to crown champions in
1936, and the first since Nebraska
from 1994-97.
Tide coach Nick Saban now has
won four national championships.
Only Alabama’s Paul “Bear”
Bryant, with six, has more.
The Fighting Irish (12-1) didn’t
score until they were down 35-0 late
in the third quarter.
In a matchup of tradition-rich pro-
grams tied for the most AP national
championships with eight, Notre
Dame was looking for its first
national championship in 24 years.
The Crimson Tide got its ninth.
The Crimson Tide marched with
ease on the opening drive, going 82
yards on five plays to take a 7-0 lead
on Lacy’s 20-yard touchdown run
up the middle with 12:03 left in the
first quarter.
Notre Dame (12-0) had allowed
only two rushing touchdowns in its
surprising run to the championship
game. The Fighting Irish were the
first team to reach the BCS champi-
onship game after starting the sea-
son unranked. They were trying to
become the first team to go from
unranked to national champion
since BYU in 1984.
Alabama quickly made the
Fighting Irish look as if they were in
over their heads.
Notre Dame did nothing to
respond to Alabama’s opening
march, and on its punt back, the
Crimson Tide might have caught a
break. Returner Christion Jones
muffed the kick, but Notre Dame
was flagged for interfering with the
catch, though it was one of Jones’
teammates that made contact with
him.
Lacy and the Crimson Tide went
right back to work, hammering
away at Notre Dame’s vaunted
defense. The Irish struggled to bring
down the 220-pound tailback, who
even ran through Heisman Trophy
finalist Manti Te’o on a screen pass.
In the second quarter, it was fresh-
man T.J. Yeldon slipping through
Te’o’s arms in the backfield on a
third-down run and getting a first
down.

The NHL appears headed toward a
48-game season for the second time
in two decades.
“I think 48 is most likely at this
point, unless the players can expe-
dite their ratification process,” NHL
deputy commissioner Bill Daly
wrote in an email Monday to The
Associated Press.
The NHL shortened its 82-game
slate to 48 games for the 1994-95
season after a 103-day lockout. A
301-day lockout in 2004-05 made
the NHL the first major North
American professional sports league
to lose an entire season.
When the framework of a new col-
lective bargaining agreement was
agreed to Sunday morning — after
16 hours of negotiations — there
was some talk of having a 50-game
season start later this month.
The NHL and the players’ associ-
ation are working on a memorandum
of understanding, which could be
completed soon, then voted on by
owners and players. The league has
circulated a memo to teams telling
them to be ready to play by Jan. 19,
the date the shortened season is
expected to start.
“As we prepare for the season
opener, I want to apologize to all
Blues fans, especially our season
ticket holders, suite holders, and
sponsors,” St. Louis Blues owner
Tom Stillman said in a statement
released by the team. “We share in
your disappointment and frustration
about the lockout.”
Los Angeles Kings forward Kevin
Westgarth expects the NHLPA to
conduct a conference call to explain
and answer questions about the new
CBA.

since 1952
back-to-back 20-win seasons. The Cougars
are well on their way to a third straight 20-win
campaign.
Unlike El Camino, the Cougars do not have
a pair of go-to players to carry the squad.
Corey Cilia is averaging 15 points per game
and Rico Nuno is scoring 10 points a contest,
but they are the only two players averaging
double figures.
But, every member of the 13-player roster
has a scoring average this year, with eight
players having appeared in all 12 games and
two others playing in 10 games.
Westmoor is much like El Camino, with a
pair of players providing most of the scoring.
Errol Fernandez and Wai Min are the two
most high-profile players for the Rams, but
the rest of the squad has stepped up to help
Westmoor average 61 points per game.
Terra Nova could be the dark horse in the
race. After starting the season with three
straight losses, the Tigers have gone 7-2 since.
Terra Nova tends to be one of the more phys-
ical teams in the North and their size can give
opposing teams problems.
On the girls’ side, there doesn’t appear to be
a clear-cut favorite. Terra Nova, which has
won five straight division titles and is 49-1 in
PAL play since Kareem Summerville took
over the coaching duties beginning the 2007-
08 season, is in rebuilding mode after gradu-
ating three Division I college players.
Until further notice, however, the Tigers are
the team to beat in the North. Despite having
a 2-7 preseason mark, the Tigers have played
one of the most rugged non-league schedules
in the division, with a pair of losses to both St.
Ignatius and Presentation from the West
Catholic Athletic League, as well as East Bay
power Monte Vista of Danville.
“Right now, we’re rebuilding,”
Summerville said. “We have a lot of injuries
right now.”
Summerville said the Tigers have only
seven players on varsity right now, with three
players out for the season with knee injuries.
“It’s just a mess,” Summerville said.
The Tigers do have a key pair of returners.
Lynette Mackey, who has already committed
to play at CSU San Marcos, is averaging 18
points per game and Ari Sheehy, a sophomore
who saw plenty of action as a freshman last
season, will run the point.
“How far [Mackey] goes is how far this
team will go,” Summerville said.
Despite all the injuries, Summerville said
the team is focused on one goal.
“They know we have a 27-game wining
streak (in PAL play) and their mindset is to
win league,” Summerville said. “Some of the
teams in our league are hungry and they know
we’re not at 100 percent and they’re going to
try and take advantage of it. I have to remind
the girls, we can’t lay down and we can’t look
back. We have to look forward.
“I told the girls we have to win league to
make CCS.”
Half Moon Bay and El Camino come into
PAL play as the hottest teams in the division.
Half Moon Bay has won five in a row and
posted a 6-4 record in preseason. El Camino
has won four in a row and stands at 5-3.
Oceana, however, had the most success in
preseason, finishing non-league play with a
record of 7-4. The Sharks have three players
scoring in double figures, led by Sahara
Clay’s 12.2 points per game. Jessica Pineda
and Bailey Bowes are both averaging 10
points.
South City and Westmoor also posted win-
ning preseason records, at 4-3 and 5-4,
respectively.

In many ways, No 19 is blessed with the
ability to slow the game down around the
goal, hence, chaotic situations when others
might send off a wild, inaccurate shot toward
the net actually turned into quality chances for
Mendoza — all three of his goals against
Aragon are examples.
Goal 1: on a great through ball from the
midfield, Mendoza found himself in front of a
charging goalkeeper. No. 19 smoothly side-
stepped to the left and, even though David
Kiel’s dive made him lose his balance tem-
porarily, he was still able to make a foot-first
dive at the ball and get it across the goal line.
Goal 2: a 50-50 ball just inside the Aragon
penalty box saw Mendoza outleap Kiel and
pop the ball over his fist. Then, No. 19 pro-
ceeded to guide the ball across the goal line
while shielding an Aragon defender.
Goal 3: Again, inside the penalty box,
Mendoza received a pass with this back
toward goal and three defenders draped all
over him. In a wink, Mendoza turned to the
left and released a shot that rifled its way into
the back of the net for the hat trick.
“I felt pretty good,” Mendoza said. “And
tired. And I’m always nervous because I’m the
youngest one. I don’t know. I just feel nerv-
ous.”
The nerves don’t show on the field. And the
rest of the San Mateo squad should take solace
in knowing that as they make a 2013 run at
protecting their PAL Bay Division and CCS
co-championships, they have a forward in
Mendoza playing well beyond his years and
one that speaks very clearly on the field.

Zach Ertz going pro,
will enter next NFL draft
STANFORD — Back in seventh grade,
Zach Ertz hated football so much he wanted to
quit. Instead, his mother, Lisa, convinced him
to give the sport a chance— if nothing else
just so he could see if he could reach his full
potential.
“I’d say it worked out all right,” Ertz said
Monday.
The All-American tight end officially
announced his plans to forego his final year of
eligibility at Stanford and enter the NFL draft.
While the move had been expected, Ertz said
the Cardinal’s recent run of success — and the
emergence of quarterback Kevin Hogan — at
least made him consider returning for one
more run at a national title.
“Kevin’s special, man. All those guys com-
ing back on defense, I think they’re going to
be one of the best teams in the country next
year,” Ertz said by phone. “They’re going to
be really good. But at the same time, I have to
do what’s best for me and my family at this
time. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.”
Ertz submitted paperwork to the NFL to
gauge where he could be selected. He’s
expected to be a late first-round or early sec-
ond-round pick in April.
After playing in the Orange Bowl and Fiesta
Bowl the previous two years, Ertz had a team-
best 69 receptions for 898 yards and six touch-
downs while leading No. 8 Stanford (12-2) to
the Pac-12 title and a Rose Bowl victory over
Wisconsin. The Cardinal had not won the
Rose Bowl since 1972.
Ertz came up big in the biggest moments of
the year, too.

you don’t know, you might want to ask
somebody so you won’t be too surprised
like I was. I was very surprised at the
stage. I had an idea, but until I got out
there, I was like, ‘Wow.’ I was nervous,
more so than usual.”
Not that it ever showed.
In a 36-32 upset of Drew Brees and the
favored New Orleans Saints, Davis made
a leaping 14-yard touchdown catch under
pressure on a perfectly thrown ball from
Alex Smith with 9 seconds remaining in
the NFC divisional playoffs. Davis had
another spectacular outing in the NFC
championship game, catching touch-
down passes of 73 and 28 yards in the
Niners’ 20-17 overtime loss to the even-
tual Super Bowl champion New York
Giants.
If only Davis could do it again after a
quiet year in which defenses keyed in on
him and made others in a revamped
receiving corps beat them.
“There are definitely more of our play-
ers who have been through the playoffs
and can personally share with the first- or
second-year players who haven’t been
through the playoffs what that experi-
ence was like for them,” Harbaugh said.
“They can personalize it from conversa-
tion to conversation. I hope our young
guys are taking advantage of that.”
So much was different about this sea-
son. San Francisco never ran off with the
NFC West this time, yet still captured a
consecutive division crown. There were
no long winning streaks — and the
Niners even had a frustrating home tie
mixed in — and fewer victories than in
Harbaugh’s Coach of the Year debut sea-
son. Yet, here they are again as the NFC’s
No. 2 seed and fresh off a bye week to
rest and prepare.
“We know what to expect going for-
ward,” left tackle Joe Staley said. “I think
last year a lot of the players had to draw
from the older veterans. We all have
playoff experience on this team. We
know what kind of atmosphere it’s going
to be.”
Harbaugh, his coaches and the players
have been fueled day in and day out ever
since that loss to the Giants last year to
get this franchise back to the Super Bowl
at last. The Niners haven’t been since
winning a championship after the 1994
season with Hall of Fame quarterback
Steve Young leading the way.
“The football gods have a different
outcome for that last game than we did,”
Harbaugh said. “Now is a new team, a
team I feel very good going into the play-
offs with and understands the challenge
and the task that’s up against us this time
around.”
Lee certainly expects to be less anx-
ious, without the worries of added pres-
sure and expectations now that he has
been through the playoffs once.
“I would say last year I didn’t know
what to expect,” Lee said. “It was a little
nerve-racking, a little more than I
thought it would be. This year, it’s what
we planned on, what it’s supposed to be,
just another game — a big game at that
— but the best way we can approach it is
it’s just another game. There’s a little bit
more of that feeling in it than building it
up as much and getting nervous about it.
“It’s a little easier to go into it with a
good, clean mind,” Lee said. “I felt a lit-
tle nervous the day before the game. I
never really do that. But I don’t feel that
will be part of it this year.”
Cornerback Tarell Brown knows the
49ers learned plenty during last season’s
playoff near miss, even some simple
messages they will take into this week-
end’s game.
After beating Aaron Rodgers and
Green Bay in Week 1, plenty has
changed for both teams as they prepare
to meet again.
“You’ve got to treat it like a normal
game — we understand that. It’s no pres-
sure on us,” Brown said. “We have anoth-
er opportunity to show the world we’re
one of the best teams in the league. We
love playing these big games.”
Notes: Harbaugh said defensive line-
man Justin Smith is expected back after
he partially tore his left triceps.

ZURICH — Lionel Messi became the first
four-time winner of the FIFA Player of the
Year award after shattering the world record
with 91 goals last year for Barcelona and
Argentina.
The 25-year-old won for the fourth straight
time, beating Real Madrid’s Cristiano
Ronaldo and Barcelona teammate Andres
Iniesta in voting announced Monday. His 91
goals topped Gerd Mueller’s mark of 85 for
Bayern Munich and Germany in 1972.
Abby Wambach became the first American
to win FIFA Women’s Player of the Year since
Mia Hamm in 2001 and 2002. Pia Sundhage
was voted top women’s coach after leading
Wambach and the U.S. team to the gold medal
at last summer’s London Olympics.
Messi received 41.60 percent of the points
in votes by national team coaches and cap-
tains plus selected media. Ronaldo got 23.68
percent and Iniesta 10.91 percent.
“To tell the truth, this is really unbelievable
to get the fourth award. I am so nervous,”
Messi said in Spanish, wearing a black tuxedo
jacket and bow tie, both with a white polka-
dot pattern in an unexpectedly flamboyant
touch.
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann and captain
Carlos Bocanegra both voted Messi first, as
did Soccer America’s Paul Kennedy.
Zinedine Zidane of France and Ronaldo of
Brazil were voted FIFA Player of the Year
three times before the award merged in 2010
with France Football’s Golden Ball, given to
the European player of the year. The Golden
Ball, or Ballon d’Or, was won three times by
Michel Platini of France and Johan Cruyff and
Marco van Basten of the Netherlands.
The 32-year-old Wambach received 20.67
percent to edge teammate Alex Morgan (13.5)
and five-time winner Marta of Brazil (10.87).
Jill Ellis, who was interim U.S. coach last fall,
voted Wambach first, as did Sports
Illustrated’s Grant Wahl, while American cap-
tain Christie Rampone voted Morgan first.
“I’m very, very surprised,” Wambach said.
“Not only do I think Marta and Alex could
have won, but many other players could have
been here as well.”
Wambach, who received the award from
American goalkeeper Hope Solo, scored five
goals in London as the U.S. won its third
straight Olympic title. She has 152 interna-
tional goals, six shy of Hamm’s record.
“She’s so completely deserving of this
award,” Morgan said. “She’s made such a
huge mark on women’s soccer over the past
decade. She’s an inspiration to not only the
thousands of young girls around the country
and world, but also to me.”
The U.S. players were serenaded from the
stage by Sundhage, who sang a verse of the
Bob Dylan song “If Not For You” when she
received her award.
Sundhage, who left the U.S. job after the
Olympics to coach her native Sweden, got
28.59 percent of the vote to defeat Nono
Sasaki of Japan (23.83) and Bruno Bini of
France (9.02).
Vicente del Bosque was voted top men’s
coach after leading Spain to its third straight
title in a major tournament, the 2012
European Championship. Del Bosque got
34.51 percent to win over Real Madrid’s Jose
Mourinho (20.49), who won last year, and Pep
Guardiola (12.91) who won in 2011 and
retired from Barcelona last spring.
The three men’s Player of the Year were on
the World XI All-Star team chosen by the
FIFPro group of players’ unions, comprising
50,000 members worldwide.
They selected a team composed entirely of
players from Spanish clubs, with nine repeat-
ing their selection from one year ago.
Andre Ward postpones
fight for shoulder surgery
LOS ANGELES — Super middleweight
champion Andre Ward has had surgery on his
injured right shoulder that will postpone his
title bout against Kelly Pavlik for a second
time.
The fight had originally been scheduled for
Jan. 26 in Los Angeles but was postponed
until March when Ward hit his shoulder while
sparring.
After rest did not heal the injury, Ward got a
second opinion from San Francisco Giants
orthopedic surgeon Dr. Michael Dillingham,
who discovered a small tear in Ward’s shoul-
der capsule.

WHAT’S ON TAP
After a couple of great looks at
the South City net to begin the sec-
ond half, the Dons committed a foul
inside their penalty box in the 55th
minute. The play was huge consid-
ering that Manny Villasenor,
Aragon’s second keeper, had just
checked into the game — two min-
utes after running onto the field,
Villasenor had to face a Lopez PK
and the South City midfielder got
the best of him.
Villasenor got his redemption
though, notching a couple of huge
saves late in the game, most notably
on a 1v1 against Salifu Jatta, that
preserved the Aragon lead.
“The key was our back line step-
ping up,” Markoulakis said of his
team’s second half performance.
“The boys are versed into morphing
into a system change to protect the
lead. And I think that helped us.
“He’s equally competent,”
Markoulakis said of Villasenor.
“He’s very vocal and he brings a
different perspective, a different
intensity to the game.”
South City had its fair share of
looks in the second half. But none
would beat Villasenor.
“It’s something we’ve been work-
ing on all season — just finishing,”
Villasenor said. “And we still need
to work on it.”

have a tailgate party (after our
game and before the Warriors
game) so we’re making it a whole-
day event.”
The Rams and Cougars will be
on a very strict schedule however.
By agreeing to participate, both
schools are given a three-hour
block of time — from noon to 3
p.m. to do with as they wish.
“You can scrimmage, you can do
whatever you want,” Forslund said.
Westmoor and Half Moon Bay
decided to make it a regular-season
game, but because of the strict time
constraints, the schools must use
the time wisely. The plan is to play
the varsity game at noon, followed
by the frosh-soph game. If that sec-
ond game can’t be finished by 3
p.m., they’ll have to suspend the
game and finish it later.
By participating, Forslund said
the Warriors are providing the
arena for free but the teams are
responsible for officials and clock
managers.
Even though the varsity squads
will be playing first, they will be a
bit of a disadvantage because the
teams won‘t be able to follow their
normal routines. Forslund said the
Warriors won’t open the arena until
just a few minutes before noon, so
the teams will have to be dressed
and ready to hit the floor for about
a 10-minute warmup period before
opening tipoff.
During that warmup period, the
teams will have to quickly adjust to
playing in arena that is nothing like
many of the players have ever
before experienced. With the cav-
ernous size of an NBA arena, there
are issues with shooting with
which the players must contend.
The depth perception can be very
unsettling when high school teams
play in big arenas because most
high school players are used to see-
ing nothing but a wall behind the
backboards in their school gyms.
When they get to major college
arenas (like Santa Clara University,
which is the site of Central Coast
Section finals) or pro arenas, play-
ers are suddenly faced with a sea
of people — or more likely, empty
seats — that can affect their shoot-
ing.
“Outside shooting becomes very
problematic,” Forslund said.
Forslund also said the rims tend
to be a lot tighter and stiffer, thus
making missed shots bounce like a
Super Ball coming off the rim.
“We have to try and get the ball
closer to the basket and do two
things: use the glass (to bank in
shots) and shoot a flatter (trajecto-
ry) shot.
“It’s going to be a fun deal for
everybody and something pretty
unique.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Heart disease and dia-
betes get all the attention, but what about the
many other ways obesity can damage your
health?
Carrying too many pounds may lead to or
worsen some types of cancer, arthritis, sleep
apnea, even infertility. But a new poll suggests
few Americans realize the links.
Only about one-quarter of people think it’s
possible for someone to be very overweight
and still healthy, according to the poll by the
Associated Press-NORC Center for Public
Affairs Research.
Ask about the most serious consequences,
and more than 7 in 10 Americans can correct-
ly tick off heart disease and diabetes. Heart
disease is the nation’s leading killer, and dia-
betes and obesity are twin epidemics, as rates
of both have climbed in recent years.
The other consequences aren’t so well
known.
“People are often shocked to hear how far-
reaching the effects of obesity are,” said
Jennifer Dimitriou, a bariatric dietitian at New
York’s Montefiore Medical Center.
Only 7 percent of people surveyed men-
tioned cancer, although doctors long have
known that fat increases the risk of developing
cancers of the colon, breast, prostate, uterus
and certain other sites. Plus, being overweight
can make it harder to spot tumors early and to
treat them.
Then there’s the toll on your joints, espe-
cially the knees. About 15 percent of people
knew obesity can contribute to arthritis, a
vicious cycle as the joint pain then makes it
harder to exercise and shed pounds.
High blood pressure, high cholesterol and
strokes were fairly low on the list. Infertility
didn’t get a mention.
Also, 5 percent put respiratory problems on
the list. Studies show people who are over-
weight are at increased risk of sleep apnea and
asthma, and that dropping pounds can help
improve their symptoms.
Knowing more about the myriad ways obe-
sity affects health could help motivate people
to get more active and eat better before full-
blown disease strikes, Dimitriou said.
“Most people want to become healthier. It’s
the know-how, and understanding what the
consequences are,” she said.
But only 52 percent of those surveyed said
they’ve discussed the health risks of being
overweight with a doctor.
In another complication, the AP-NORC
Center survey found that about half of people
think their weight is just about right, and only
12 percent of parents think their child is over-
weight. That’s even though government fig-
ures show two-thirds of U.S. adults, and one-
third of children and teens, are either over-
weight or obese.
If you’re surrounded by overweight people,
especially in your family, “then that’s all you
know, and that to you is normal,” Dimitriou
said.
The AP-NORC Center survey was conduct-
ed Nov. 21 through Dec. 14. It involved land-
line and cellphone interviews with 1,011
adults nationwide and has a margin of sam-
pling error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage
points.
Poll shows few Americans
know all the risks of obesity
Knowing more about the myriad ways obesity affects health could help motivate people to

Unusual break
from surging
cost of health
By Ricardo Alonso Zaldivar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Americans kept health
care spending in check for three years in a
row, the government reported Monday, an
unusual respite that could linger if the econo-
my stays soft or fade like a mirage if job
growth comes roaring back.
The nation’s health care tab stood at $2.7
trillion in 2011, the latest year available, said
nonpartisan number crunchers with the
Department of Health and Human Services.
That’s 17.9 percent of the economy, which
averages out to $8,680 for every man, woman
and child, far more than any other economi-
cally advanced country spends.
Still, it was the third straight year of histor-
ically low increases in the United States. The
3.9 percent increase meant that health care
costs grew in line with the overall economy in
2011 instead of surging ahead as they normal-
ly have during a recovery. A health care bill
that grows at about the same rate as the econ-
omy is affordable; one that surges ahead is
not.
The respite means President Barack Obama
and lawmakers in Congress have a window to
ease in tighter cost controls this year, if they
can manage to reach a broader agreement on
taxes and spending. Health care spending is
projected to spike up again in 2014, as
Obama’s law covering the uninsured takes full

effect, before settling down to a new normal.
“Economic, income and job growth in 2011
was modest and less than might normally be
expected during an economic recovery,” said
the report from the government’s National
Health Expenditure Accounts Team. “This
fact raises questions about whether the near
future will hold the type of rebound in health
care spending typically seen a few years after
a downturn.”
The report noted signals in both directions.
Medicare spending grew faster in 2011, but
Medicaid spending slowed down. Spending
on hospital care slowed.
Spending on prescription drugs and doc-
tors’ services accelerated, but spending for
private health insurance grew modestly.
More people gained health insurance as a
result of the health law’s requirement that
young adults can stay on a parent’s plan until
age 26. But employers increasingly steered
workers and families into high-deductible
health plans, which come with lower monthly
premiums but require patients to pay a greater
share of their bills out of their own pockets.
That’s a disincentive to go to the doctor.
Although some insurers are currently seek-
ing big premium increases for certain plans,
it’s not clear that’s a widespread trend.
The slowdown in health care spending has
been widely debated. Some experts see it as
an echo-chamber effect of a weak economy.
Others say cost controls by government and
employers are starting to have an effect. Many
believe costs need to be squeezed more.
“I think it’s a big opening,” said Ken
Thorpe, a professor of health policy at Emory
University in Atlanta, who served in the
Clinton administration as a senior adviser. “If
we have a debate on entitlement reform this
year, we need to come up with ideas for
pulling costs out of the system.”
Cutting payments to hospitals and doctors
won’t solve the problem, said Thorpe. The
challenge is to slow the spread of chronic ill-
nesses such as diabetes while also finding
ways to keep patients healthier and out of the
hospital.
The numbers back up Thorpe’s observation.
Health care spending is highly skewed toward
the sickest people. Five percent of patients
account for nearly half the total spending in
any given year.
The report was published in the journal
Health Affairs.

He has found dead raccoons on the proper-
ty and fears it has also become a nesting
ground for rats.
So fed up with the state of the property, he
would even routinely mow the front lawn
himself but has since stopped. When the
O’Briens moved out about six years ago,
Bettencourt even fed the dogs the family left
behind in the house.
“They just packed up and left one day,” he
said.
When he called the Peninsula Humane
Society and Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals to come get the dogs,
some of the workers came out of the house
and needed to vomit, Bettencourt said.
He said he has also seen a police officer
come out of the house and vomit.
Neighbors on Howard Avenue have a direct
line of sight into the back of the property,
which has two abandoned vehicles, parts for
motorcycles and about 40 bags of garbage
piled high in knee-deep vegetation.
Bettencourt has even visited the San Mateo
County Assessor’s Office to see whether the
O’Briens have kept up with their tax pay-
ments. He said he discovered they have not
and owe the county about $16,000 in back
property taxes.
He has also planted trees and shrubbery in
his own yard so he does not have to look at the
home.
While the exterior of the home is in disre-
pair, Bettencourt’s real fear is what might be
found inside the home.
“It’s disgusting,” he said.
He sent a letter to some members of the
Burlingame City Council decrying the lack of
code enforcement action and used the words
“worthless” and “incompetent” to describe the
code enforcement effort.
“Burlingame is supposed to be a nice place
to live, but not for us on Channing Road. I
would appreciate if you could let me know
what can truly be done about this,”
Bettencourt wrote in an email to
Councilwoman Terry Nagel that was then for-
warded to Mayor Ann Keighran and new City
Manager Lisa Goldman.
Bettencourt read recently that San Mateo is
suing a family for excessive code enforcement
violations for a home in the Shoreview neigh-
borhood and wonders if Burlingame will take
the same action against the Channing Road
property owners.
Yesterday, Keighran told the Daily Journal
that City Attorney Gus Guinan was not famil-
iar with the home or any violations it might
have but scheduled a meeting with
Community Development Director Bill
Meeker to discuss the matter. Guinan also
requested the history of violations for the
property from Code Enforcement Officer Sue
Harris, Keighran told the Daily Journal.

increasing the height limit up to seven stories.
San Bruno currently has an overall height
limit for buildings of 50 feet or three stories,
whichever is more restrictive. The change will
require voter approval, said Ruane.
Getting moving on the plan has those inter-
ested in revitalizing the area coming forward.
For example, proposals to renovate the
Budget Motel at 850 El Camino Real and to
create a mixed-use, residential project on San
Mateo Avenue — home to a vacant run-down
theater — are being discussed. Both will
require a local subsidy. Even without redevel-
opment money, Ruane said he was hopeful
that a possible agreement could be reached.
Another indicator that the economy is get-
ting better is that the city is projecting revenue
increases from property, sales and hotel taxes.
Vacant spaces are also starting to fill up.
Recently, plans to open a used car dealership
at 675 El Camino Real, most previously home
to the Sloat Garden Center, were discussed.
The space was also the former home to a Ford
dealership, at which time it was among the top
sales tax generator for the city. More office
space is coming to the Bayhill area in the
space previously home to a T.G.I. Friday’s.
San Bruno could also open a hotel at the
vacant lot south of Jack’s Restaurant, 1050
Admiral Court, and north of Interstate 380 in
2014. Last year, the city purchased the prime
space to take the lead in planning a hotel for
the area. Since then, a request for proposals
has resulted in five qualified plans, said
Ruane. The proposals will remain private for
now but the hope is to choose one to move for-
ward with so the project can be complete and
open in 2014, he said.
This year will also mean the opening of 308
units at Pacific Bay Vistas, formerly the
Treetops Apartment complex on Susan Drive.
Years ago, San Bruno approved plans to
demolish the vacant 308-unit complex and
replace it with the 510-unit building. That
plan was scaled back in 2010 to just renovate
the area.
Lastly, Ruane hoped at his next State of the
City address, he could announce the comple-
tion of the San Bruno Grade Separation
Project, which broke ground in November
2010. Once complete, it will elevate nearly a
mile of Caltrain tracks above San Bruno,
allowing multiple daily trains to pass safely
above traffic and pedestrians on newly con-
structed bridges over intersections at San
Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues. Plans
are on schedule to start operating trains on the
new tracks later this year.

Tuesday • Jan. 8, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Death rates
from cancer are continuing to inch
down, researchers reported Monday.
Now the question is how to hold
onto those gains, and do even better,
even as the population gets older and
fatter, both risks for developing can-
cer.
“There has been clear progress,”
said Dr. Otis Brawley of the
American Cancer Society, which
compiled the annual cancer report
with government and cancer advoca-
cy groups.
But bad diets, lack of physical
activity and obesity together wield
“incredible forces against this decline
in mortality,” Brawley said. He
warned that over the next decade, that
trio could surpass tobacco as the
leading cause of cancer in the U.S.
Overall, deaths from cancer began
slowly dropping in the 1990s, and
Monday’s report shows the trend
holding. Among men, cancer death
rates dropped by 1.8 percent a year
between 2000 and 2009, and by 1.4
percent a year among women. The
drops are thanks mostly to gains
against some of the leading types —
lung, colorectal, breast and prostate
cancers — because of treatment
advances and better screening.
The news isn’t all good. Deaths
still are rising for certain cancer types
including liver, pancreatic and,
among men, melanoma, the most
serious kind of skin cancer.
Preventing cancer is better than
treating it, but when it comes to new
cases of cancer, the picture is more
complicated.
Cancer incidence is dropping
slightly among men, by just over half
a percent a year, said the report pub-
lished by the Journal of the National
Cancer Institute. Prostate, lung and
colorectal cancers all saw declines.
But for women, earlier drops have
leveled off, the report found. That
may be due in part to breast cancer.
There were decreases in new breast
cancer cases about a decade ago, as
many women quit using hormone
therapy after menopause. Since then,
overall breast cancer incidence has
plateaued, and rates have increased
among black women.
Another problem area: Oral and
anal cancers caused by HPV, the sex-
ually transmitted human papillo-
mavirus, are on the rise among both
genders. HPV is better known for
causing cervical cancer, and a protec-
tive vaccine is available. Government
figures show just 32 percent of teen
girls have received all three doses,
fewer than in Canada, Britain and
Australia. The vaccine was recom-
mended for U.S. boys about a year
ago.
Among children, overall cancer
death rates are dropping by 1.8 per-
cent a year, but incidence is continu-
ing to increase by just over half a per-
cent a year. Brawley said it’s not clear
why.
Report: Death rates from cancer still inching down
By Lindsey Tanner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHICAGO — Roll up a sleeve for
the blood pressure cuff. Stick out a
wrist for the pulse-taking. Lift your
tongue for the thermometer. Report
how many minutes you are active or
getting exercise.
Wait, what?
If the last item isn’t part of the
usual drill at your doctor’s office, a
movement is afoot to change that.
One recent national survey indicated
only a third of Americans said their
doctors asked about or prescribed
physical activity.
Kaiser Permanente, one of the
nation’s largest nonprofit health
insurance plans, made a big push a
few years ago to get its southern
California doctors to ask patients
about exercise. Since then, Kaiser has
expanded the program across
California and to several other states.
Now almost 9 million patients are
asked at every visit, and some other
medical systems are doing it, too.
Here’s how it works: During any
routine check of vital signs, a nurse
or medical assistant asks how many
days a week the patient exercises and
for how long. The number of minutes
per week is posted along with other
vitals at the top the medical chart. So
it’s among the first things the doctor
sees.
“All we ask our physicians to do is
to make a comment on it, like, ‘Hey,
good job,’ or ‘I noticed today that
your blood pressure is too high and
you’re not doing any exercise.
There’s a connection there. We really
need to start you walking 30 minutes
a day,’” said Dr. Robert Sallis, a
Kaiser family doctor. He hatched the
vital sign idea as part of a larger ini-
tiative by doctors groups.
He said Kaiser doctors generally
prescribe exercise first, instead of
medication, and for many patients
who follow through that’s often all it
takes.
It’s a challenge to make progress. A
study looking at the first year of
Kaiser’s effort showed more than a
third of patients said they never exer-
cise.
Sallis said some patients may not
be aware that research shows physi-
cal inactivity is riskier than high
blood pressure, obesity and other
health risks people know they should
avoid. As recently as November a
government-led study concluded that
people who routinely exercise live
longer than others, even if they’re
overweight.
Zendi Solano, who works for
Kaiser as a research assistant in
Pasadena, Calif., says she always
knew exercise was a good thing. But
until about a year ago, when her
Kaiser doctor started routinely meas-
uring it, she “really didn’t take it seri-
ously.”
Your medical chart could
include exercise minutes
Kaiser recommends at least 2 1/2 hours of moderately vigorous exercise
each week.That includes brisk walking,cycling,lawn-mowing — anything
that gets you breathing a little harder than normal for at least 10 minutes
at a time.
Hillary Clinton back at
work after hospitalization
WASHINGTON — Cheers, a
standing ovation and a gag gift of pro-
tective headgear
greeted Secretary
of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton
as she returned to
work on Monday
after a monthlong
absence caused
first by a stomach
virus, then a fall
and a concussion
and finally a brief
hospitalization for a blood clot near
her brain.
A crowd of about 75 State
Department officials greeted Clinton
with a standing ovation as she walked
in to the first senior staff meeting she
has convened since early December,
according to those present. Deputy
Secretary of State Thomas Nides, not-
ing that life in Washington is often a
“contact sport, sometimes even in
your own home” then presented
Clinton with a gift — a regulation
white Riddell football helmet embla-
zoned with the State Department seal,
officials said.
High court rejects
Medicare challenge
WASHINGTON — The Supreme
Court has turned away a challenge
from former House Majority Leader
Dick Armey and other Social Security
recipients who say they have the right
to reject Medicare in favor of contin-
uing health coverage from private
insurers.
The justices did not comment
Monday in letting stand a federal
appeals court ruling that held that
there is no way for people who
receive Social Security to reject
Medicare benefits.
Armey, a Texas Republican, and
two other former federal employees
say private insurance covers more
than Medicare. Two other plaintiffs
are wealthy individuals who have
high deductible private insurance and
prefer to pay for their health care.
The case was funded by a group
called The Fund For Personal Liberty,
which says its purpose is to take on
burdensome government regulations.

inside the Fair Oaks Community Center
which sits in a part of the district he
plans to prioritize. On Monday night,
Slocum announced the goal of dedicat-
ing county resources to the area, includ-
ing more people from the community in
making changes and being accessible
through regular office hours and meet-
ings.
District Four includes Redwood City,
Menlo Park and East Palo Alto and the
unincorporated areas of North Fair Oaks
and Oak Knoll.
At the ceremony, Slocum was accom-
panied by his wife, Maria Diaz-Slocum,
who also sits on the Redwood City
Elementary School District Board, and
two sons, Jonathan and Justin. U.S.
Reps. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, and
Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, also made
appearances as did the mayors of the
cities in Slocum’s district.
Slocum takes over from Supervisor
Rose Jacobs Gibson, who was termed
out of office after serving since 1999 and
will receive a formal sendoff from the
board at Tuesday morning’s meeting.
The board will also meet in Pacifica that
night to reorganize and install
Supervisor Don Horsley as president.
Slocum was the top vote-getter in both
the June primary which had seven candi-
dates and the November runoff against
Shelly Masur. Slocum did not receive
the most votes in District Four in
November but that factor did not matter
because at that point supervisors were
elected countywide although they must
reside in the district he or she represents.
In that election, voters also chose to
change the method.
Slocum retired from the county in
2010 after 25 years of service. He was a
late-comer to the supervisor race, not
adding his name to the roster until just
before the nomination deadline in
March. But he quickly amassed a mighty
war chest through fundraising and per-
sonal loans. He also secured the backing
of supervisors Jacobs Gibson and
Adrienne Tissier.
During his campaign, Slocum listed
the county’s budget and ongoing deficit
a top priority and backed Measure A, the
county’s half-cent sales tax measure
which passed on the same ballot.
Last night, Slocum reiterated his sup-
port for the tax, saying the electorate and
government have entered into a bargain
for which the county must act responsi-
bly with the money.
“The voters have done their part. Now
it’s incumbent upon us to complete our
part,” Slocum said.
By the time the tax expires, Slocum
said the county must be ready with a sus-
tainable and balanced budget.
Slocum, who promoted technology in
his former elected office, said he also
wants to use the same spirit of innova-
tion as a county supervisor. As exam-
ples, Slocum suggested streamlining
billing for health care reimbursement
costs to create an estimated $10 million
annually in revenue, publish the county’s
checkbook online so the public can see
where tax money is spent and create a
variety of online dashboards to display
economic indicators and performance
measures.
“People should know how their gov-
ernment is performing, if it’s achieving
its goals and at what cost,” he said.
During the campaign, Slocum also
said he would follow Horsley’s lead in
not accepting a supervisor salary while
simultaneously receiving his pension.
Horsley recently announced he was
again taking a paycheck after two years
of waiving it; Slocum has not placed
such a cap on his promise.

Journal. “It is not out of the realm of
possibilities that it was gang related.”
The incident took place about 10:30
p.m. in a quiet residential area near Park
Boulevard and Santa Teresa Way across
from the high school.
The suspect vehicle then sped off
southbound on Santa Teresa Way, then
westbound on Park Boulevard, accord-
ing to the Sheriff’s Office. Of all the
teenagers present, only the female vic-
tim sustained any gunshot wounds and
she was subsequently transported to a
local hospital for treatment. The victim,
who is from South San Francisco, is said
to be in stable condition, according to
the Sheriff’s Office.
The suspects have yet to be located
and will likely face attempted murder
charges if apprehended.

this crime should feel free to contact

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES — During produc-
tion of his final post-midnight show,
Jimmy Kimmel’s studio audience wait-
ed patiently while he taped a string of
promotional spots.
“Hey, Denver: You, me, now at 10:35.
Let’s not be weird about this,” the host
quipped to the camera in his Hollywood
Boulevard studio.
“This will be good for us,” Kimmel
said earnestly in another local station
promo.
The message in each spot — whether
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” is on at 11:35
p.m. in the East and West or earlier
elsewhere — is that Kimmel will be
playing in the same league as veterans
Jay Leno and David Letterman, starting
Tuesday with guests Jennifer Aniston
and No Doubt.
The message
Kimmel delivered to
a recent teleconfer-
ence was equally
concise: He won’t be
changing his style
for the move, push-
ing aside conven-
tional wisdom that
edgier late-night
humor won’t play in Peoria or else-
where before the clock strikes 12.
It’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” after all,
that has given the world such brashly
funny videos as the Matt Damon-Sarah
Silverman musical romp with bleep-
worthy lyrics.
“There’s this idea that you need to
broaden the show or make it ... more
wholesome or something like that. And
I think that’s a little bit out-of-date,
that perception,” Kimmel told
reporters.
“I guess only time will tell,” he
added, in his typically low-key delivery.
Just as with Kimmel’s promised
approach to the most coveted time peri-
od in late-night, ABC is taking a bold
step by swapping “Nightline” with his
show. The news program, offering
viewers a non-talk show option, has
been the period’s ratings leader.
But the network likely won’t be
sweating the early returns, according to
analyst Brad Adgate of Horizon Media.
He says putting Kimmel into the pre-
midnight pocket, when more viewers
are still up and watching, is a strategy
aimed at an inevitable future.
“Leno and Letterman aren’t going to
be doing this forever,” Adgate said, and
ABC gives him a head start on estab-
lishing himself by putting him on now.
Kimmel moves to late-night’s sweet spot
Jimmy Kimmel
TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2013
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s important to be
astute regarding touchy situations, because if you’re
not, you could easily allow yourself to be dominated by
another. Don’t let it happen.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Frivolous social
pursuits should not be permitted to interfere with your
more serious affairs. Put anything of that sort at the
bottom of your agenda until you complete your duties.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When you are unable
to achieve your objectives, don’t look for scapegoats
to blame. The fault will easily be traced back to you
should you bite off more than you can chew.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you’re given important
information to relay to another, don’t trust it to memory.
Your recall might not be as accurate as you think.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It’s important to prevent
emotion from dominating your thinking. If you don’t,
what you let yourself believe about a fnancial matter
might not be in line with reality.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Do not let a reckless
companion inspire you to act in a similar manner. If you
should, together you might do something quite foolish
and costly that you’ll later regret.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Some big problems
could arise if you foist onto co-workers certain jobs
that you should be taking care of yourself. Strive to be
industrious instead of manipulative.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Normally, you’re a pretty good
judge of people, yet your instincts could unexpectedly
fail you. Unfortunately, you could place your trust in
someone who has no intention of living up to it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Objectives you establish
for yourself are likely to be achieved. However, the
targets you’re striving to meet will turn out be of little
consequence to you or anybody else.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You might not be as
mentally sharp as you think. It’s one of those days
when you should avoid trying to match wits with
anyone who has lots of knowledge and expertise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Guard against
inclinations to count your chickens before they hatch.
Be a little optimistic, but, frst and foremost, let your
common sense prevail.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Try not to let your
indifference put you in a position where you have no
input in important decisions being made about your life.
Others’ thinking could easily work against you.
