LAS VEGAS — Declaring “now is
the time” to fix the nation’s broken
immigration system, President Barack
Obama on Tuesday outlined broad pro-
posals for putting millions of illegal
immigrants on a clear path to citizenship
while cracking down on businesses that
employ people illegally and tightening
security at the borders. He hailed a
bipartisan Senate group on a similar
track but left unresolved key details that
could derail the complex and emotional
Potential Senate
roadblocks center on
how to structure the
avenue to citizenship
and on whether legisla-
tion would cover same-
sex couples — and
that’s all before a
Senate measure could be debated,
approved and sent to the Republican-
controlled House where opposition is
sure to be stronger.
Obama, who carried Nevada in the
November election with heavy Hispanic
support, praised the Senate push, saying
Congress is showing “a genuine desire
to get this done soon.” But mindful of
previous immigration efforts that have
failed, he warned that the debate would
be difficult and vowed to send his own
legislation to Capitol Hill if lawmakers
don’t act quickly.
“The question now is simple,” Obama
said during a campaign-style event in
Las Vegas, one week after being sworn
in for a second term in the White House.
“Do we have the resolve as a people, as
a country, as a government to finally put
this issue behind us? I believe that we

City of San Bruno
moves to set up
$70M nonprofit
By Heather Murtagh
San Bruno is seeking input on the make-
up of the nonprofit that will be created to
manage the $70 million in restitution
Pacific Gas and Electric agreed to pay the
city for the fatal 2010 pipeline explosion.
In March, the two sides announced the
$70 million payment — in response to the
Sept. 9, 2010 explosion and fire that killed
eight residents, injured many more, destroyed 38 homes and
damaged an additional 70. San Bruno will use the funds to
establish a separate nonprofit public purpose entity to manage
the funds and determine how the funds can benefit the entire
community. On Feb. 5, the council will hold a special study
County narrowing
structural deficit
By Michelle Durand
San Mateo County is on track to narrow
a structural deficit that once ballooned to
triple digits to roughly $21 million by fis-
cal year 2017-18 although unknowns about
the economy and new jail funding could
add more debt.

direction,” County Manager John Maltbie

Construction in downtown Redwood City is prompting businesses and the city to seek short-term solutions to parking issues.
By Sally Schilling
Downtown Redwood City patrons are
often struggling to find timely parking as
construction continues taking up spaces
and blocking traffic near Middlefield
Road and Theatre Way on weekdays.
The first phase of the Redwood Tower
project — one of the many office and
retail development projects planned for
downtown Redwood City — is relocat-
ing a storm culvert underneath
Middlefield Road.
Businesses, particularly on Theatre
Way, have been struggling with directing
customers to available parking since
construction began in mid-October.
“The last couple of weekends the
parking situation has been really tough,”
said Kamran Mahrou, owner of
Portobello Grill on Theatre Way.
Mahrou has gone out to do his own
survey of his customer’s parking chal-
lenges. He found many drivers are
unaware of the ample parking in the
county garage on Middlefield Road near
Veterans Boulevard.
“We realized we have a four-story
empty parking space, but people go right
by it and don’t seem to know they can
park there for free,” said Mahrou.

in a locked closet. Police had gone to his resi-
dence on Cliff Swallow Court on reports of a

Lawmakers consider
range of gun controls
By Don Thompson
SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers promised
Tuesday to move cautiously as they consider tighter restric-
tions on handguns, assault rifles and ammunition purchases,
proposals that would add to state regulations already among
the toughest in the nation.
The chairmen of the Assembly and Senate public safety
committees said during a joint legislative hearing that law-
makers will seek consensus as they look for ways to improve
gun safety after recent mass shootings, particularly the
Newtown, Conn., school massacre.
Proposed legislation includes taxing ammunition sales, out-
lawing possession of various weapons, and banning devises
that allow rapid reloading.
“If there are legislative remedies, we want it to be effective
and not divisive,” said Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San
Francisco, chairman of the Assembly committee.

As expected, the appeal of approved
permits for the development of Pete’s
Harbor was postponed more than three
months by the Redwood City Council
Monday night so it can clarify whether
the current owner’s lease requires it to
maintain a commercial marina.
The anticipated delay, however, didn’t
stop some supporters of the tenants from
addressing the council before it voted to
push the appeal to May 6.
James Lee, a representative of Occupy
RWC which has thrown its weight
behind the harbor tenants opposing the
plan and their eviction, said the post-
ponement validates its argument about
the city needing to take more time.
“The appeal delay indicates the reason
why we came here. There are a lot of
moving parts here with the State Lands
Commission, with the [San Francisco
Bay Conservation and Development
Commission], “ Lee said, according to a
video of the meeting. “There are too
many moving parts for this development
to be fast-tracked.”
Last week, city staff told the council it
should stave off the appeal of the
Planning Commission’s approval until
after the State Lands Commission clari-
fies whether the planned development’s
private marina violates the earlier lease
agreement with Pete’s Harbor owner
Paula Uccelli.
“It’s more complete than what every-
one first thought,” City Manager Bob
Bell said at Monday night’s meeting.
“That decision could potentially change
the project.”
Both the developer and a member of
the tenants group agreed to the delay.
If the State Land Commission ulti-
mately rejects the lease transfer, the
Planning Commission’s approval of a
planned development permit and park-
ing exception will be rendered moot.
Uccelli, who inherited the 21-acre site
from her late husband, plans to sell the
harbor to developer Pauls Corp. and
transfer the lease for the outer marina.
But plan opponents are suing Uccelli,
saying the lease with the SLC requires a
commercial harbor, and the City Council
said it also wants answers before spend-
ing time on the appeal.
The project in question calls for 411
residential units adjacent to the marina
and the private marina for residents.
A spokeswoman for tenants balking at
their eviction earlier called the delay
proposal a confirmation of their argu-
ments. But one speaker Monday night,
Leslie Webster, said Alison Madden is
merely a member of the Save Pete’s
Harbor 2012 group and not its sole rep-
Other speakers asked the city to step in
against the evictions but Bell explained
that the city has no say in that process.
Harbor tenants were given until Jan.
15 to vacate and Uccelli has said their
eviction stands regardless of the appeal’s
outcome. Several remain on the site,
either through granted time extensions
or protest.

Redwood City Council asks for more time to clarify lease requirements

Americans are paying millions in unnec-
essary fees to collect unemployment
benefits because of state policies encour-
aging them to get the money through
bank-issued payment cards, according to
a new report from a consumer group.
People are using the fee-heavy cards
instead of getting their payments
deposited directly to their bank
accounts. That’s because states issue
bank cards automatically, require com-
plicated paperwork or phone calls to set
up direct deposit and fail to explain the
card fees, according to a report issued
Tuesday by the National Consumer Law
Center, a nonprofit group that seeks to
protect low-income Americans from
unfair financial-services products. An
early copy of the report was obtained by
the Associated Press.
Until the past decade, states distrib-
uted unemployment compensation by
mailing out paper checks.

Two brothers killed in
triple-fatal crash identified
Two brothers who died Sunday night in a crash on State
Route 92 in Foster City have been identified as 12-year-old
Erik Reynaga and 16-year-old Aldo Reynaga, according to
the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office.
The two Redwood City boys were among five people in a
car heading east on State Route 92, when the driver lost con-
trol near Foster City Boulevard at about 9:45 p.m., California
Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel said.
The car hit a guardrail, overturned and crashed into a utili-
ty pole, Montiel said.
The driver, who was later identified as Juan Carlos
Zaragoza Hernandez, 21, of San Mateo, was also killed in the
Hernandez’s cousin, 18-year-old Eduardo Zaragoza, was
sitting in the front passenger seat at the time of the crash. The
San Mateo man was wearing his seatbelt and suffered minor
injuries, Montiel said.
A fifth passenger, Erik and Aldo’s older brother Jesus
Reynaga-Reyes, 18, was taken to Stanford Hospital with
major injuries.
The crash remains under investigation by the CHP.
S.F. home searched in 1984 disappearance of boy
San Francisco police have searched a home in San
Francisco in connection with the disappearance of a 10-year-
old boy nearly 30 years ago.
A law enforcement official tells the Associated Press that
investigators were digging in the backyard and the basement
of the home near the city’s Haight-Ashbury district Tuesday.
They were looking for evidence in the 1984 disappearance of
Kevin Collins.
The official spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity
because the search warrant in the case was sealed.
The official says the home was the home of a person who
was once a “person of interest” in the case.
Collins was last seen leaving basketball practice at St.
Agnes School.
Advocates: CPUC must rehear San Bruno decision
Consumer advocates and city officials are asking California
regulators to reconsider a decision to approve a $299 million
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. rate increase to help pay for
pipeline inspections and upgrade costs following a 2010 fatal
pipeline explosion.
The California Public Utilities Commission approved the
company’s two-year plan in late December, allowing the util-
ity to charge ratepayers for 55 percent of the safety upgrades’
long-term costs, overall.
Tuesday, officials from the cities of San Bruno and San
Francisco as well as the commission’s own consumer advoca-
cy branch, known as the Division of Ratepayer Advocates,
asked the commission to rehear the decision.

Contending with enrollment growth in
the Sequoia Union High School District
could mean asking the public for bond
revenue, an update the board will discuss
Current estimates assume enrollment
will grow from about 8,300 to 9,700 stu-
dents by 2020. That growth isn’t equal
across the district. Also, not all schools
have the capacity to add more facilities.
The challenge will be stretching facili-
ties for the growing number of students
and covering the costs. Staff has been
working on the issue since last fall.
After talking to principals and parents
in the North Fair Oaks and Ravenswood
community, staff is recommending that
boundary changes should result in stu-
dents from one school being assigned to
no more than two high schools. Such a
move, according to the staff report,
should improve the ninth grade transi-
tion and could cut down in the number
of transfer requests from incoming
Currently, one middle school could
have students going to any of the four
comprehensive or charter high schools
within the district. Also, the district
allows for students to apply to other
schools within the district. Districtwide,
700 such requests were made last year
and 500 were granted. Historically,
about a third of the incoming freshman
class aims to make such a transfer.
Expanding facilities to meet the needs
of these students is another concern for
the district.
There is about $12 million available
from Measure J — a $165 million bond
measure passed by voters in 2008,
according to the staff report. Since the
enrollment growth is expected to hit
Sequoia and Carlmont high schools first,
staff is recommending moving forward
with projects to build on those campus-
es. Each school would get a two-story
classroom building. To meet the rest of
the growth needs, the board will need to
discuss pursuing an additional bond
measure, according to the staff report.
Looking ahead, the district needs to
set an enrollment target for each campus
that includes the future growth. It can
then work with the community to dis-
cuss boundary changes.
The proposed timeline calls for com-
pleting these tasks by August 2013 with
any boundary changes for future stu-
dents to become effective August 2014.
The board meets 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Jan. 30 at the District
Office, 480 James Ave., Redwood City.

An off-duty sheriff’s deputy accused of
stealing a musician’s pricey trumpet and
jacket while he played at a Millbrae hotel
in December and later throwing the instru-
ment out a car window pleaded not guilty
to felony grand theft.
After entering his plea, Brandon Hatt,
34, was scheduled for an April 23 prelim-
inary hearing.
Hatt was arrested Dec. 21, the day after
authorities say he took the $2,000 trumpet
from Parkway Heights Middle School
music teacher Jesse Mathews who was
playing a show with his band Turt Vagi
and the People Standing Behind Me at the
Aloft Hotel. Mathews told the Daily
Journal shortly after the alleged incident
that he had noticed a group of loud men
including one in uniform during a break in
the show and at the night’s end noticed
both his trumpet and jacket missing.
According to prosecutors, Hatt was
shooting pool at the hotel and was seen
leaving, then re-entering for one minute,
before exiting again with the jacket and
trumpet. A responding officer called to the
hotel learned the trumpet had been thrown
from a car on Magnolia Avenue near
Taylor Boulevard but was unable to locate
it. Mathews himself found the instrument
in its soft case in a driveway about a block
from where it had been reported thrown.
The jacket was not recovered.
Mathews was uncertain how much
damage his trumpet, named Lucy, sus-
tained from the throw.
Hatt is employed by the Millbrae Police
Department under the umbrella of the
Sheriff’s Office as part of its shared serv-
ices agreement. Hatt was not in uniform
and off duty at the time of the alleged inci-
dent. If convicted, he faces up to three
years in prison. Hatt’s defense attorney
could not be reached for comment.
Hatt remains free from custody on a
$10,000 bail bond and returns to court
March 21 for a Superior Court review
Hatt is on paid administrative leave,
according to Sheriff’s Office spokes-
woman Rebecca Rosenblatt.

Hobart “Hobie” Emory Frates
Hobie Frates passed away on January
20, 2013, in San Mateo, CA at the age
of 87. Hobie, born on September 23,
1925, was a lifelong resident of the
Bay Area. He was an alumnus of St.
Ignatius High School and the University
of San Francisco. After proudly serving
his country in the Air Force during
WWII, Hobie married the love of his
life, Lilas Julia Brennan, who sadly
passed away in 1990.
Earning his masters degree, he embarked on his fulfilling 30+
year career as a teacher at South San Francisco High School.
Additionally, he worked as a charter and tour bus driver, which
gave him an opportunity to showcase his wit and charm. Ever the
comedian, Hobie dubbed himself, “The world’s worst bus driver!”
He compensated with tours full of insightful facts, colorful stories,
and terrible jokes that endeared him to all. Hobie was well known
for his two great passions: gardening and being “frugal”. He utilized
both in creating, from scratch (and a few dumpsters), his own little
botanical oasis in his backyard. Hobie was happiest knee deep in
mud while planting his latest experiment or tending to his beloved
backyard pond & goldfish. Occasionally gruff, he had a big smile, an
even bigger heart and was always there for his kids and grandkids.
Truly a unique man, “Dad” and “Grandpa” will be greatly missed.
Hobie was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. John & Genevieve
Frates; his wife of 45 years, Lilas Frates; as well as his daughter,
Lilas Giacomino. He is survived by his daughter, Bonnie Johnston
of Sunnyvale and his daughter and son-in-law, Debbie and Tim
Hitch of Meridian, ID; his six grandchildren, Michael, Steven,
Jackie, Scott, Jennifer, Kevin and respective spouses and six great
grandchildren, Rachel, Ryan, Dana, Joey, Kaylee and Brooke.

BALTIMORE — After weeks of
round-the-clock medical care,
Brendan Marrocco insisted on
rolling his own wheelchair into a
news conference using his new
transplanted arms. Then he brushed
his hair to one side.
Such simple tasks would go
unnoticed in most patients. But for
Marrocco, who lost all four limbs
while serving in Iraq, these little
actions demonstrate how far he’s
come only six weeks after getting a
double-arm transplant.
Wounded by a roadside bomb in
2009, the former soldier said he
could get by without legs, but he
hated living without arms.
“Not having arms takes so much
away from you. Even your person-
ality, you know. You talk with your
hands. You do everything with your
hands, and when you don’t have
that, you’re kind of lost for a while,”
the 26-year-old New Yorker told
reporters Tuesday at Johns Hopkins
Doctors don’t want him using his
new arms too much yet, but his grit-
ty determination to regain inde-
pendence was one of the chief rea-
sons he was chosen to receive the
surgery, which has been performed
in the U.S. only seven times.
That’s the message Marrocco said
he has for other wounded soldiers.
“Just not to give up hope. You
know, life always gets better,
and you’re still alive,” he said.
“And to be stubborn. There’s a
lot of people who will say you
can’t do something. Just be
stubborn and do it anyway.
Work your ass off and do it.”
Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee, head of the
team that conducted the surgery,
said the new arms could eventually
provide much of the same function
as his original arms and hands.
Another double-arm transplant
patient can now use chopsticks and
tie his shoes.
Lee said Marrocco’s recovery has
been remarkable, and the transplant
is helping to “restore physical and
psychological well-being.”
Tuesday’s news conference was
held to mark a milestone in his
recovery — the day he was to be
discharged from the hospital.
Next comes several years of reha-
bilitation, including physical thera-
py that is going to become more dif-
ficult as feeling returns to the arms.
Before the surgery, he had been
living with his older brother in a
specially equipped home on New
York’s Staten Island that had been
built with the help of several chari-
ties. Shortly after moving in, he said
it was “a relief to not have to rely on
other people so much.”
The home was heavily damaged
by Superstorm Sandy last fall.
“We’ll get it back together. We’ve
been through a lot worse than that,”
his father, Alex Marrocco, said.
For the next few months,
Marrocco plans to live with his
brother in an apartment near the
The former infantryman said he
can already move the elbow on his
left arm and rotate it a little bit, but
there hasn’t been much movement
yet for his right arm, which was
transplanted higher up.
Marrocco’s mother, Michelle
Marrocco, said he can’t hug her yet,
so he brushes his left arm against
her face.
The first time he moved his left
arm was a complete surprise, an
involuntary motion while friends
were visiting him in the hospital, he
“I had no idea what was going
through my mind. I was with my
friends, and it happened by acci-
dent,” he recalled. “One of my
friends said ‘Did you do that on pur-
pose?’ And I didn’t know I did it.”
Marrocco’s operation also
involved a technical feat not tried in
previous cases, Lee said in an inter-
view after the news conference.
A small part of Marrocco’s left
forearm remained just below his
elbow, and doctors transplanted a
whole new forearm around and on
top of it, then rewired nerves to
serve the old and new muscles in
that arm.
“We wanted to save his joint. In
the unlucky event we would lose the
transplant, we still wanted him to
have the elbow joint,” Lee said.
He also explained why leg trans-
plants are not done for people miss-
ing those limbs — “it’s not very

WASHINGTON — The Senate over-
whelmingly confirmed President Barack
Obama’s choice of five-term Sen. John Kerry
to be secretary of state, with Republicans and
Democrats praising him as the ideal succes-
sor to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The vote Tuesday was 94-3. One senator —
Kerry — voted present and accepted congrat-
ulations from colleagues on the Senate floor.
The roll call came just hours after the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee unanimously
approved the man who has led the panel for
the past four years.
No date has been set for Kerry’s swearing-
in, but in a letter to Massachusetts Gov. Deval
Patrick, Kerry says his resignation is effective
at 4 p.m. Friday. The State Departments plans
a welcoming ceremony for Kerry on Monday.
Obama tapped Kerry, 69, the son of a
diplomat, decorated Vietnam veteran and
2004 Democratic presidential candidate, to
succeed Clinton, who is stepping down after
four years. The Massachusetts Democrat,
who had pined for the job but was passed
over in 2009, has served as Obama’s unoffi-
cial envoy, smoothing fractious ties with
Afghanistan and Pakistan.
“Sen. Kerry will need no introduction to
the world’s political and military leaders and
will begin Day One fully conversant not only
with the intricacies of U.S. foreign policy, but
able to act on a multitude of international
stages,” said Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.,
who will succeed Kerry as committee chair-
Sen. Bob Corker of
Tennessee, the panel’s top
Republican, called Kerry
“a realist” who will deal
with unrest in Egypt, civil
war in Syria, the threat of
al-Qaida-linked groups in
Africa and Iran’s pursuit
of nuclear weapons.
Kerry, a forceful propo-
nent of climate change
legislation, also will have a say in whether
the United States moves ahead on the
Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, a divi-
sive issue that has roiled environmentalists.
Obama had nominated Kerry after Susan
Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United
Nations, removed her name from consid-
eration following criticism from
Republicans over her initial comments
about the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in
Benghazi, Libya.
Voting against Kerry were three
Republicans — Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and
John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas. Absent
from the vote were Sens. Patty Murray, D-
Wash., and John Hoeven, R-N.D.
“Sen. Kerry has a long history of liberal
positions that are not consistent with a major-
ity of Texans,” Cornyn said in a statement.
The senator is up for re-election next year
and could face a tea party challenge.
Kerry’s smooth path to the nation’s top
diplomatic job stands in stark contrast to the
harsher treatment for Obama’s other national
security nominees — Chuck Hagel to be
defense secretary and John Brennan to be
CIA director.

WASHINGTON — Transportation
Secretary Ray LaHood, who lifted the profile
of distracted driving as a national safety con-
cern, is stepping down, presenting President
Barack Obama with another Cabinet vacancy
at the start of his second term.
The former congressman from Illinois and
one of only two Republicans who served in
Obama’s Cabinet, LaHood worked for more
safety in the air and on the ground and
pushed for improvements of roads and
bridges. Under his watch, the department
demanded tougher fuel efficiency require-
ments for automakers and took steps to
address airline pilot fatigue.
Obama, who at one point served with
LaHood in the Illinois congressional delega-
tion, said they were “drawn together by a
shared belief that those of us in public serv-
ice owe an allegiance not to party or faction,
but to the people we were elected to repre-
sent. And Ray has never wavered in that
LaHood, 67, said in an interview with the
Associated Press that he told Obama a week
after the November election that he needed to
move on. But he also said he was still “con-
flicted” by his decision because he liked
working for the president and considered it
the “best job I’ve ever had in public service.”
He said he plans to remain at the depart-
ment until his successor is confirmed by the
Senate, which he expects in about two
months. The only other Republican who was
in Obama’s first-term Cabinet was Defense
Secretary Robert Gates, who stepped aside
and was replaced by Democrat Leon Panetta
LaHood, who was once considered likely
to run for governor in his home state, said he
would not seek public office and indicated he
didn’t have any specific plans.
“I have had a good run. I’m one of these
people who believe that you should go out
while they’re applauding,” he said.

another vacancy in Cabinet

NEW YORK — The Boy Scouts of
America’s proposed move away from its no-
gays membership policy has outraged some
longtime admirers, gratified many critics and
raised intriguing questions about the iconic
organization’s future.
Will the Scouts now be split between troops
with gay-friendly policies and those that keep
the ban? What will a National Jamboree be
like if it brings together these disparate groups
with conflicting ideologies? Will the churches
long devoted to scouting now be torn by inter-
nal debate over the choices that may lie
A top official of the Southern Baptist
Convention, whose conservative churches
sponsor hundreds of Scout units that embrace
the ban, was among those alarmed that the
BSA is proposing to allow sponsoring organi-
zations to decide for themselves whether to
admit gays as scouts and adult leaders.
“We understand that we are now a minority,
that it is not popular to have biblical values,
not popular to take stands that seem intoler-
ant,” said Frank Page, president of the SBC’s
executive committee. “This is going to lead to
a disintegration of faith-based values.”

‘Successful,’ or not?
Your esteemed columnist Dorothy
Dimitre nailed it again in her column
“Non-performers,” in the Jan. 23 edi-
tion of The Daily Journal. She raises
the age-old question of what we mean
by success — which has come into
focus again by the conservatives’
emphasis on “takers vs. makers,” “per-
formers vs. non-performers” and “rich
vs. poor,” thus juxtaposing poorly
defined opposite extremes, while ignor-
ing all shades in-between. How egoma-
niacal do you have to be to look down
on those who haven’t been quite as
lucky as yourself and call them “non-
performers,” “forgetting” all the help
you received from a well organized
Dimitre raises the very central ques-
tion of what the overused concept “suc-
cess” really means, and if acquired
wealth can be accepted as the determin-
ing factor. What is really behind some-
one’s financial success? Inheritance,
lucky breaks, favorable social and mar-
ket conditions, hard working employ-
ees and invaluable help from here and
there are always contributing factors,
but so easily forgotten on your way
On the other hand, how successful
have you really been if your monetary
“success” is offset by injury to others,
the environment or the society at large?
Did you destroy anyone on your way
up? How about your immediate family
— cared for or ignored? What about
your offspring, if any? Did your chil-
dren develop into well behaved, con-
tributing members of society, or a bur-

factors, extending from past to future
generations! No one is an island, and
no one did it alone.

Questions that must be asked
to Supervisor Adrienne Tissier
In response to Jon Mays’ column
“Money Train” in the Jan. 18 edition of
the Daily Journal, the following ques-
tions must be asked now that San
Mateo County residents pay some of
the highest taxes in the state of
The supervisors who campaigned for
this tax measure had significant con-
flicts of interest that have never been
properly disclosed.
For example, Adrienne Tissier is the
CEO of Bay Relations, Inc. Its clients?
The San Mateo County Board of
Supervisors, Seton Medical Center,
Caltrain and SamTrans.
Why did Seton Medical Center put
up most of the money to fund the $1.4
million of Yes on Measure A, and also
supply the campaign staff? Presumably
it feels it is a likely beneficiary of a
good chunk of the $60 million, and
perhaps then it can spend more money
with Ms. Tissier’s company?
Before the supervisors start spending
the $60 million of taxpayer money on
such things, or giving more raises to
San Mateo County law enforcement,
I’d like to see our debt paid down.
There is $962 million of unfunded pen-
sion liabilities. Let’s pay $50 million
on the first year, $45 million for the
second, $40 million for the third, and
$35 million for years four through 10.
This would only pay off $380 million,
but it’s a good start, and the numbers
are a good illustration of how dire the
county’s finances are.

Letters to the editor
n 1986, President Ronald Reagan
signed the Immigration Reform
and Control Act, which sought to
create an effective employer verification
program to ensure only legal workers
were hired while increasing border con-
trol. In doing so, it also created a one-
time amnesty for approximately 3 mil-
lion undocumented immigrants. The
theory was that by making it difficult
for employers to hire illegal immi-
grants, it would dry up employment
opportunities and diminish the incen-
tive for those seeking to come to this
country illegally.
However, it is clear that the act did
little to stem the issue of illegal immi-
gration. So with that understanding,
there should be some amount of caution
about the latest proposal to address this
ongoing issue.
However, it is significant movement
that this is a topic of discussion with a
framework that would create a legiti-
mate path to citizenship, increase bor-
der security and formalize an admit-
tance program for agricultural and other
low-skilled workers in addition to those
who were brought here as children.
This framework, brought forward by a
bipartisan group of senators Monday
and also discussed by President Obama
Tuesday, is certainly a step in the right
direction though reminiscent of the
1986 act in many of its promises. This
time, however, instead of 3 million
immigrants, the number is closer to 11
million. At this point, there is no realis-
tic way to solving our immigration
issue without allowing a path toward
citizenship for those already here. The
cost of deportation is prohibitive and
the cost of breaking up families and
communities is just too great.
But this is an issue in which the rhet-
oric gets ratcheted up quickly. Why
reward lawbreakers? No human is ille-
gal! It is best to put that hyperbole
aside and focus on the semantics of the
issue. Clearly, there is an impact of ille-
gal immigration. There is an impact on
our social services and our educational
system. The counterargument is that the
cheap labor that comes with it helps
keep costs down for businesses. But the
idea that there should be a second tier
of workers here who do not get health
or other benefits for the sake of reason-
ably priced produce is inhumane. And
we ultimately pay for it in other ways
like health services for those who need
to use an emergency room for basic
health care. Another issue to consider is
whether those who enter the path
toward citizenship will be eligible for
health care coverage under the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act. For
San Mateo County, that may be a bene-
fit since much of the cost borne by the
county-run San Mateo Medical Center
is because of the undocumented. Still, it
could be a financial consideration wor-
thy of determining the impact of
through the legislative process.
This newspaper has long been a pro-
ponent of granting amnesty for those
already in this country illegally as long
as there is an outlined path to citizen-
ship with fees for legality and back
taxes that could be used to pay for
enforcement of our borders. This is
approximately the same framework out-
lined by the bipartisan group of sena-
tors Monday and the president yester-
There is still much to be fleshed out
and it is a lot to ask of this particular
Congress, but it can be agreed upon by
most reasonable people that our
nation’s immigration policy is in need
of attention with new rules that make
sense according to today’s reality while
also coming up with a worthwhile and
humane policy for a large group of peo-
ple who have made this country their
Immigration reform takes a big first step
Healthy pleasures?
ou are only one thought away from a good feel-
ing.” — Sheila Krystal.
Phew! I was greatly relieved when I found out that it isn’t
so bad to be overweight after all when, just a few weeks ago,
we read that “being slightly overweight may actually reduce
our chances of dying prema-
turely” and, “a bit of extra fat,
stored in the right places,
might help people survive ill-
nesses.” It reminded me of a
book I read some time ago,
“Healthy Pleasures” by
Robert Ornstein, Ph.D. and
David Sobel, M.D. They
wrote that it isn’t so much the
state of our blood pressure,
cholesterol, exercise regime,
bodily padding, etc. that make
a difference in our health and
longevity, but our attitude
about living.
Whether we grimly plod through our days or are running
on the treadmill of constant activity, taking time to enjoy the
many healthy pleasures that the authors describe in their
book can make a great difference in our well-being.
“The collective weight of evidence strongly points to how
positive mood influences resistance to and recovery from
disease. The opposite is true as well: negative moods,
depression, hostility and the lack of pleasure all seem to con-
tribute to poor health. There appears to be a physiology of
happiness which communicates to our heart, our immune
system, our entire body,” say the authors.
Ornstein and Sobel are careful to caution that, of course,
we must practice moderation in our lives — nutritionally,
physically, etc., and that a high fat diet, inactivity, physical
and emotional problems must be taken into consideration.
But if we don’t take time to stop and smell the roses, if we
don’t enjoy healthy pleasures of living, not only does the
quality of life suffer, but all of the concentrated attention to
calorie and cholesterol counting, aerobic exercise, body
shape, can go for naught. Many studies are cited to back this
The authors say that our fear of being overweight, except
for the very obese, is really about appearance, not health.
What kind of quality of life, they say, does a person enjoy
when he/she is constantly feeling inferior and guilty because
of overweight, yo-yoing from one diet to another, constantly
preoccupied with food (or lack thereof)? We are informed
that 90 percent to 95 percent of those who lose any large
amount of weight eventually gain it back. Studies have
shown that being moderately overweight (up to 40 percent,
the authors say) does not make that much difference health-
wise as long as the person has no serious underlying health
Wouldn’t it be better if all of the energy that so many peo-
ple waste worrying about their weight could be used for
something positive, constructive, creative and pleasureful!
Isn’t life too short to spend so much of it feeling terrible
about yourself because your body is well-rounded and to
constantly struggle against the tide, so to speak?
To be able to truly enjoy healthy pleasures, we have to
maintain a certain detachment from ourselves. Our minds
and hearts must be open and receptive. We must do these
things because we enjoy them, not because we feel required
to do them or it’s expected of us. Then healthy pleasures
help prevent uptightness of all sorts — from loosening up
the workaholic who feels compelled to be constantly produc-
tive to mellowing those who spend all of their energy worry-
ing about their weight. And these delectably enrich the lives
of those of us who may have already honed our ability to
hang loose.
So what are the healthy pleasures? Those that the authors
describe are: touch (therapeutic, soothing or that of the
heart), saunas, beautiful views of nature, aquarium gazing,
listening to and moving to inspiring music, responsible sex,
good food (including quality chocolate in moderation), an
occasional glass of wine, agreeable activity (like gardening
and playing with children), mirth, learning something of
interest, cathartic tears, creating with our hands, helping oth-
ers, doing needlework, taking a nap and the ultimate — hav-
ing a job that follows your bliss. And, may I add, enjoying
games with friends and writing poetry (and columns for the
Daily Journal).
Enjoying healthy pleasures can make us happier and
healthier whether we’re fat, thin, old, young, in perfect or
not-so-perfect health. But I still can’t help but wonder if
some of those healthy pleasures would be even more enjoy-
able with a svelte shape (It’s hard to get rid of old convic-
tions, even when we know better). When it comes to such
concerns, somehow I’m reminded of a gem written by
Marilyn Ferguson in “The Aquarian Conspiracy”: “Not until
we have discovered the extent of our own programmed fears
can we forgive the imperfections and weaknesses of others.”
I think this calls for a nap.

NEW YORK — Pfizer helped keep
the stock market rally alive Tuesday. The
drugmaker’s stock gained after posting
strong earnings, pushing the Dow closer
to 14,000.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose
73 points to close at 13,954.42 points,
ending higher for the seventh day in
eight. The Standard and Poor’s 500 also
rose, adding eight points to 1,507.84
points. The Nasdaq composite dropped
less than a point to 3,153.66.
The January rally looked as if it was
running out of steam yesterday as stocks
pulled back from their highs, but
Tuesday they resumed their ascent
toward record levels. Demand was bol-
stered at the start of the year after law-
makers reached a deal to avoid the “fis-
cal cliff” and was sustained by reports
that have added to evidence showing the
U.S. housing market is recovering and
the jobs market is slowly healing.
The Dow is 6.5 percent higher this
month and the S&P 500 is up 5.7 per-
cent. Both indexes are at their highest
levels in more than five years.
Pfizer was the biggest gainer in the
Dow, advancing 86 cents, or 3.2 percent,
to $27.70 after the company said its
fourth-quarter profit more than quadru-
pled because of a $4.8 billion gain from
selling its nutrition business and despite
competition from generic drugs hurting
sales. Homebuilder D.R. Horton gained
$2.51, or 11.8 percent, to $23.82 after it
said that net income more than doubled
as the housing recovery took hold.
Improving home prices and better sales
bolstered profits.
“The earnings season is not stellar, it’s
not gangbusters, but it’s better than last
quarter,” said Quincy Krosby, a market
strategist at Prudential.
Currently, analysts expect fourth-quar-
ter earnings for 2012 to increase by an
average of 4.7 percent for S&P 500 com-
panies, according to the latest data from
S&P Capital IQ. That’s an improvement
on the previous quarter when profit grew
by 2.4 percent.

NEW ORLEANS — A federal judge
on Tuesday approved an agreement for
BP PLC to plead guilty to manslaughter
and other charges and pay a record $4
billion in criminal penalties for the com-
pany’s role in the 2010 rig explosion and
oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
U.S. District Judge Sarah Vance said
the plea deal was “just punishment” con-
sidering the alternatives to the settle-
ment, including the risk that a trial could
result in a lower fine for BP.
Before she ruled, Vance heard emo-
tional testimony from relatives of 11
workers who died when BP’s blown-out
Macondo well triggered an explosion on
the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and
started the spill.
“I’ve heard and I truly understand your
feelings and the losses you suffered,” she
Billy Anderson, whose 35-year-old
son, Jason, of Midfield, Texas, died in the
blast, recalled the trauma of watching the
disaster play out on television.
“These men suffered a horrendous
death,” he said. “They were basically cre-
mated alive and not at their choice.”
BP agreed in November to plead guilty
to charges involving the workers’ deaths
and for lying to Congress about the size
of the spill from its broken well, which
spewed more than 200 million gallons of
oil. Much of it ended up in the Gulf and
soiled the shorelines of several states.
The company could have withdrawn
from the agreement if Vance had rejected
BP America vice president Luke Keller
apologized to the relatives of the workers
who died and for the spill’s environmen-
tal damage to the Gulf Coast.

By Christopher S. Rugaber
WASHINGTON — U.S. home prices accelerated in
November compared with a year ago, pushed higher by rising
sales and a tighter supply of available homes.
The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-city home price
index rose 5.5 percent in November compared with the same
month a year ago. That’s the largest year-over-year gain in six
All but one of the cities in the index posted annual gains.
The largest gain was in Phoenix, where prices jumped nearly
23 percent. It was followed by San Francisco, where prices
rose 12.7 percent, and Detroit, where they increased 11.9 per-
New York was the only city to report a drop from a year ago.
Prices also rose in 10 of the cities measured by the index in
November from October. That’s up from seven in October
from September. The biggest monthly gains were in San
Francisco, Phoenix and Minneapolis.
Monthly prices are not seasonally adjusted and frequently
decline over the winter. The 20-city index dipped in November
from the previous month.
Steady price increases should help fuel the housing recov-
ery. They encourage more people to buy before prices rise fur-
ther. Higher prices also build homeowners’ wealth, which can
spur more spending and economic growth.
Ryland Group’s 4Q profit
soars as home sales rise
By Alex Veiga
LOS ANGELES — Ryland Group Inc. said Tuesday that
its net income soared in the fourth quarter, fueled by a 68
percent spike in revenue as the homebuilder sold more homes
and benefited from higher sale prices.
The results easily beat Wall Street’s expectations, sending
shares in the Westlake Village, Calif., company up more than
3 percent in after-market trading.
Ryland, which builds homes in 13 states, said completed
sales jumped 59 percent in the October-December quarter
versus the last three months of 2011. New home orders grew
64 percent from a year earlier.
The sharp increase in homes sold and contracts for new
homes reflects both soft sales trends in the last quarter of
2011 and a budding recovery in housing that got traction last

Two years ago, the Serra wrestling team
was shut out by St. Francis. Fourteen matches,
zero team points.
Tuesday night, the Padres all but clinched
the West Catholic Athletic League dual-meet
title by dominating the Lancers, 39-17.
“It means so much (to clinch a WCAL
championship). I remember the first time I
watched varsity, we got blown out (by St.
Francis),” said Elias Hernandez, a senior, who
was involved in the night’s most dramatic
match at 115 pounds. “We definitely wanted
to go through St. Francis to do it.
“These guys are our rivals and we haven’t
beaten them in years.”
The Padres still have two dual meets left —
against Valley Christian and Sacred Heart
Cathedral, which were a combined 1-6 in
league meets.
Jerry Dela Rosa set the tone for Serra (4-0
WCAL) to start the match at 140 pounds. The
third-ranked wrestler in the Central Coast
Section at that weight, dominated St. Francis’
Charlie Clarke, ranked No. 9, winning 10-3.
The rest of the Padres appeared to feed off that
as they went on to win the first seven matches
of the evening, building a 24-0 lead.
“It was our night,” said Serra coach Ricardo
Garcia. “This (win) locks it up (the WCAL
While the final score was lopsided, as were
some of the matches, they were all grueling.
Points were hard to come by in most of the

Serra won 11 of them.

Sequoia’s Jackie Hutchison celebrates her goal during the Cherokees’2-0 win over Mills in an
OceanDivision showdown Tuesday.
By Nathan Mollat
There was no downplaying the importance of
the Sequoia-Mills girls’ soccer match Tuesday
afternoon in Millbrae.
Sequoia entered the game as the Peninsula
Athletic League’s Ocean Division leader, notch-
ing an unblemished mark in the first half of
league play. A win by the Cherokees would all
but cement a division title and an automatic
Central Coast Section berth.
Mills, on the other hand, stood in second
place, two games behind the Cherokees. The
Vikings needed a victory Tuesday if they had
any shot at winning the division crown.
“We do talk about that. I don’t hold back
about talking about where we’re at (in the stand-
ings),” said Sequoia coach Melissa Schmidt.
The Cherokees proved they are the team to
beat as they scored two second-half goals to
beat Mills 2-0 at take a commanding lead in the
Ocean Division standings.
“They (the Vikings) gave us a really good
game. Mills always shows up big,” Schmidt
said. “They have really good, quick counters,
but we did a good job controlling the game.”
Sequoia (8-0 PAL Ocean, 9-3-2 overall) con-
trolled most of the possession and attack in the
first half, but had a hard time pulling the trigger.
Credit some of that to the Mills defense, which
limited the Cherokees to just a pair of shots on
net, neither of which was very dangerous.
“We kind of always have that problem, trying
to get that perfect shot,” Schmidt said.
Mills (5-3, 7-3-1) did not mount much
offense in the opening 40 minutes either, but it
seemed when the Vikings did mount an attack,
it was a bit more threatening.

It was just one of those first quarters for the
Carlmont High School boys’ basketball team.
For the first 5:04 of their game against Mills
High School, the Scots home gym treated
them like unfriendly strangers. It was a span of
basketball that saw Carlmont go 0 for 10 and
while the Scots did everything in their power
to muscle their way back into the ball game, a
17-7 deficit after one quarter was a hole to
deep to dig out of.
Mills kept pace with league-leading
Burlingame, staying within a game of first
place, by defeating the Scots 51-39.
“Mills converted and executed down the
stretch,” said Carlmont head coach Dave Low.
“It’s hard. When you’re coming from behind,
you spend a lot of energy and they’re a very
good team. There’s a reason why their record
is what it is. A couple of times, it looked like
we had stops and they scored. I’m happy with
our effort today. I think we played really

He carried himself very much like the star
he once was.
“I don’t know how many questions I’m

Then, for the next hour or so, he was the
center of attention — a role he seemed per-

over and over that he just wants to be treated
like anyone else.
Moss proclaimed himself “the greatest
receiver ever to play this game.” He urged all
the coaches out there to listen to their players
every now and then.
“I’m me,” Moss declared. “I just do it my

CLEVELAND — Tired, short-handed and
eager to get home, the Golden State Warriors
could have taken the night off.
Instead, they looked like a team that needs
to be taken seriously.
Klay Thompson scored
a career-high 32 points
and the Warriors, playing
without three starters and
a key reserve, beat the
Cleveland Cavaliers 108-
95 Tuesday night.
The Warriors were
missing guard Stephen
Curry (ankle), center
Andrew Bogut (ankle)
and forward Harrison Barnes (knee). Also,
Carl Landry, one of the first players off
Golden State’s bench, didn’t play because of a
shoulder injury.
In all, the Warriors were missing an average
of 49.1 points and 19.5 rebounds, but that did-
n’t matter. Golden State shot 54 percent,
including 11 for 16 on 3-pointers as it hit the
first nine from beyond the arc. The Warriors
took control in the second quarter and built a
16-point lead in the second half.
“No matter who is out there, we’re still
going to play Warriors basketball,” said David
Lee, had 20 points and 13 rebounds. “We
could have mailed it in on the last game of a
road trip, but everybody stepped up with a
bunch of guys out.”
The Warriors played the finale of a four-
game road trip and were coming off a victory
in Toronto on Monday.
“That’s a big-time win,” Golden State coach
Mark Jackson said. “That’s a statement game
for us. I’m extremely proud of my guys. It
would’ve been very easy to chalk one up (a
loss) because we were short-handed, but I
challenged them — and they stepped up.”
Jarrett Jack, starting at point guard, had 26
points and 12 assists.
“I had to channel my inner Stephen Curry
tonight,” he said.
Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, who missed
the morning shootaround because he was sick,
scored 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting in 36
minutes. Irving was coming off the best week
of his career when he averaged a league-best
35.7 points in three wins, was selected as a
reserve to the Eastern Conference All-Star
team, and was named the conference’s player
of the week on Monday.
“I just wasn’t there in terms of my mental
focus,” Irving said. “That’s no excuse. I tried
to play through it, but my normal energy was-
n’t there. I’m just feeling like crap.”
“He didn’t look like himself,” Cleveland
coach Byron Scott said. “I didn’t think, obvi-
ously, he was 100 percent.”
Scott warned his players before the game
that the Warriors would be ready to play. It
would appear they didn’t listen.
“We’ve got to treat it like a wounded ani-
mal,” he said. “It has no choice. It’s going to
come out fighting.”
“They just kicked our butts, to be honest
with you,” Irving said.
Tristan Thompson had 18 points and 11
rebounds for Cleveland, and Dion Waiters
also scored 18 points. The Cavaliers fell short
in their bid for their first four-game winning
streak since late in the 2009-10 season —
LeBron James’ final year with the team.
Klay Thompson was 13 of 24 from the field,
including 6 for 8 on 3s.
“It wasn’t just me,” he said. “My teammates
found me, and we just played great tonight.
We didn’t have four of our premier players,
but it just shows the depth of our team.”
Curry, who leads the Warriors with a 21-
point average, didn’t play after twisting his
right ankle Monday. Jackson said he doesn’t
know how long Curry, who has had surgery on
the ankle in each of the past two offseasons,
will be out.
Bogut, who returned Monday after missing
38 games with an injury to his left ankle, like-
ly won’t play in back-to-back games until
after the All-Star break. Barnes, a rookie, was
out with a sore left knee sustained against
Toronto while Landry, a forward off the
bench, was sidelined with a bruised left shoul-
der that also occurred Monday.
Golden State raced to a 13-4 lead less than
four minutes into the game. The Cavaliers
regrouped and led 27-25 in the second quarter,
but the Warriors regained control.
Klay Thompson hit three 3-pointers, a jump
shot and a dunk to help the Warriors build a
13-point lead twice. Golden State led 55-44
and shot 59 percent, including making all six
of their 3-point attempts, in the first half.
The Warriors’ continued to pull away in the
third quarter when Thompson hit two 3-point-
ers and scored 12 points. Golden State led 84-
68 going into the fourth quarter. The
Cavaliers, who rallied from a 20-point deficit
to defeat Milwaukee on Friday, cut the lead to
97-89 with about three minutes to play, but
Jack hit a 3-pointer and another basket, push-
ing the lead to 102-89.

NEW ORLEANS — Of all the topics
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis want-
ed to talk about at Super Bowl media day,
deer-antler spray probably was not on the list.
He declined to directly
address in any detail
Tuesday questions about
a Sports Illustrated report
that he sought help from a
company that makes the
unorthodox product to
speed up his recovery
from a torn right triceps.
Lewis was the NFL’s
leading tackler in the
playoffs after missing 10
regular-season games with the injury.
The company, Sports With Alternatives To
Steroids (SWATS), says its deer-antler sub-
stance contains a banned performance-
enhancer connected to human growth hor-
The 37-year-old Lewis, who has announced
he will retire after playing against the San
Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s Super Bowl, dis-
missed the report as “stupidity.”
Sport Illustrated reported that SWATS
owner Mitch Ross recorded a call with Lewis
hours after the player hurt his arm in an
October game against Dallas. According to the
report, Lewis asked Ross to send him deer-
antler spray and pills, along with other prod-
ucts made by the company.
The magazine also said that when it spoke
to Lewis for its story, he acknowledged asking
Ross for “some more of the regular stuff” on
the night of the injury and that he has been
associated with the company “for a couple
years through Hue Jackson.”
Jackson is a former Ravens quarterbacks
coach — and later head coach of the Oakland
Raiders. Two years ago he stopped endorsing
SWATS because his ties to the company vio-
lated NFL rules.
“That was a 2-year-old story that you want
me to refresh ... so I won’t even speak about
it,” Lewis said Tuesday. “Because I’ve been in
this business 17 years, and nobody has ever
got up with me every morning and trained
with me. Every test I’ve ever took in the NFL
— there’s never been a question of if I ever
even thought about using anything. So to even
entertain stupidity like that. ...”
The NFL didn’t immediately respond to a
request for comment, and NFL Players
Association spokesman George Atallah
declined comment.

Sharks win in shootout
SAN JOSE — Michal Handzus scored the
lone goal in a shootout on the first attempt to
give the unbeaten San Jose Sharks a 3-2 victo-
ry over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
Logan Couture scored for San Jose with less
than 3 minutes left in the third period to tie the
game at 2. He ripped a shot that appeared to
deflect off the skates of Bryan Allen and trick-
led past Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller, who other-
wise had an outstanding game.
The Sharks improved to 6-0-0, matching the
Chicago Blackhawks for the best record in the
Francois Beauchemin and Matt Beleskey
scored within a minute of each other midway
through the second period to put the Ducks
ahead. Hiller stopped 16 shots.
Joe Pavelski scored the first goal for the
Sharks, limited to two power-play opportuni-
ties. Antti Niemi had 28 saves and San Jose
hung on when Teemu Selanne hit the post on
Anaheim’s final shootout try.
Anaheim’s constant pressure and ability to
stay out of the penalty box made things tough
on the Sharks.
Pavelski scored for the third time in two
games when he fired one past Hiller midway
through the first period. Joe Thornton gave
Pavelski a nice pass just to the right of the net.
Beleskey took a shot from the side that
bounced off Niemi’s pads and into the net to
tie it. Less than a minute later, Beauchemin
beat Niemi with a shot over his left shoulder.
NOTES: Sharks D Dan Boyle sat out with
the flu. ... Ducks forward Emerson Etem made
his NHL debut in the first period. ... Thornton
has 57 points (16 goals, 41 assists) in 58

three chances in their first game. ... On the first
goal of the game, Sharks forward Patrick
Marleau, Thornton and Pavelski all extended

there’s a lot of people out there who don’t. For
what reason, I don’t know and don’t really
Moss was once the NFL’s most dominant
receiver, but those days are long past. He’s 35
now, clearly on the downside of a career that
actually seemed over a year ago. After bounc-
ing around to three different teams in 2010, he
didn’t play at all last season. But, he wasn’t
ready to walk away from the sport just yet —
and San Francisco gave him a chance to come
back for another shot at the ring.
There was one big caveat: Moss would no
longer be the center of the offense.
The 49ers had plenty of others — from
receiver Michael Crabtree to tight end Vernon
Davis to running back Frank Gore. Now that
Colin Kaepernick has taken over at quarter-
back, it’s easy to forget that No. 84 is even on
the field. Sure, Moss is savoring the 49ers run
to the Super Bowl, where they’ll face the
Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but he’s still
struggling to get his arms around the idea of
being an afterthought on the field.
“I’ve always considered myself a playmak-
er,” he said. “Blocking? Yeah, I understand
that’s part of the game. Me going out to be
decoy? Yeah, I know that’s part of the game.
But for me not to be out here making plays is
something I just don’t understand.”
Then, he remembered why he’s here.
“If that’s going to win me a ring,” Moss
said, “yeah, I accept that.”
He came oh-so-close during the 2007 sea-
son, teaming with Tom Brady to lead New
England to an unbeaten regular season and
two more wins in the playoffs. Then, in the
game that really mattered, the high-powered
Patriots were shut down in the Super Bowl by
the New York Giants, who rallied for a stun-
ning 17-14 upset after David Tyree — not
Moss — made a catch that left everyone in
It’s a game Moss has never bothered to
watch on video. It’s a game that sticks with
him to this day — and probably will forever,
even if the 49ers win on Sunday.
“There’s just something about ‘07, being
undefeated going into a Super Bowl and los-
ing it like that,” he said. “I’ll never forget that
moment because it’s not fun when you’re
sweating and you have confetti dropping
down and sticking to your face and knowing
that you’re not on the winning side of the con-
Surely, someone asked, winning this time
would ease the pain from five seasons ago.
Not so, Moss replied.
“If I win this one, that means I could have
had two,” he said. “That’s something I’ll
never forget.”
Moss’ last big season came with the Patriots
in 2009, when he had 83 receptions for 1,264
yards and 13 touchdowns. The following year
was a mess, largely of his own making.
His days in New England were numbered
before the season opener when Moss com-
plained about not getting a contract extension
and said he didn’t feel wanted. After week
four, he was traded back to Minnesota, his
original team, but that didn’t last, either. Moss
griped about then-coach Brad Childress and
was waived, finishing out the dismal, miser-
able campaign in Tennessee.
Not surprisingly, no one jumped at the
chance to offer Moss a job in 2011.
It looked as though retirement had arrived,
whether he wanted it or not.
Moss used the off year to reconnect with his
children, to get in some fishing, to watch
some games on Sundays. But he also shed
some tears, pained at the idea of ending his
career before he was ready to go. He made
sure to stay in shape, just in case someone
wanted to give him another chance.
“I love this game of football so much,”
Moss said. “I don’t like everything that comes
with it, but going out on the field between the
white lines and playing football is something
I’ve always done. I’ve been doing it since I
was 6 years old. For me to be able to just walk
away from the game, knowing that I wasn’t
ready, mentally or physically, it really hurt
me, man. It really depressed me.”

Up at the College of San Mateo, there is a
team of 34 baseball players who, quite
frankly, are sick and tired of seeing each other.
With newly-adopted changes to the
CCCAA rules, it’s been a long time since the
Bulldogs have seen another team because a
handful of scrimmages are now illegal. So
after way too many intrasquad games, manag-
er Doug Williams summed up the feeling in
two very simple words: “Let’s play.”
“We’re hungry and ready to play, to see
another opponent,” Williams said. “You can
turn the scoreboard on and get umpires, but,
we need to see another opponent and get a
gauge of where we are, which would be very
Fall ball only amongst the Bulldogs’ boys
means CSM enters the new season with a lot
of question marks — this despite enjoying the
initial No. 1 ranking in the Northern
California coaches’ poll.
“That’s on paper,” Williams said. “But
that’s about all it really is to me. It has no
bearing on what this year is. We’ll certainly be
tested early. We really go in a little bit blind if
you will. But you really don’t know until you
get the other team in the dugout and see how
the guys perform.”
CSM captain and returning All-American
shortstop Brandon Defazio shares the senti-
“It’s just about competing,” he said. “You
come into a traditional program, there are
expectations that you have as a team and as a
player. I mean, every day you have to come
out ready to play, ready to compete and you
can’t take a day off.”
Defazio’s words will be tested early on —
the Bulldogs open the season on Friday with a
big game against a strong Sierra College team.
Then they turn around and welcome Reedley
College. In all, the Bulldogs packed 12 non-
conference games in a stretch of 23 days.
“We’re really excited to see what happens,”
Williams said. “We’re going have to be throw-
ing a lot of pitchers out there. We’re a bit more
unknown on the mound than we’ve been in
previous years. At the same time, we have
guys that are going to go there, compete and
do well. They understand the philosophy and
what we’re trying to do.”
Williams mentions the “unknown” of the
pitching staff heading into this season and that
stems primarily with the departure of three
pitchers who made a combined 37 starts last
year and Dylan Nelson, who signed early with
the University of California at Berkeley after
appearing in 19 games last season.
That leaves a staff of 17 pitchers with five
total junior college starts and 54 combined
“In preparing for a new season, it’s physical
but it’s also preparing mentally, it’s handling
adversity, and seeing who has the ability to
right themselves when things get a little
shaky. Those things can only be seen in game
atmosphere. We’re hoping to be pleasantly
surprised by some in that area,” Williams said.

Grotz, along with Alex Pasha, will be looked
upon to take on the initial load. They’ll be
accompanied by former Carlmont Scot Daniel
Madigan — one of only two left-handers on
the squad this year.
“Daniel can pretty much control his des-
tiny,” Williams said. “We’re going to need a
left-hander to step up. He’s got the stuff and if
he’s consistent, he can essentially be a starting
pitcher for us.”
With such a young squad of hurlers, the
defense takes on added importance.
“It doesn’t really put too much pressure,”
Defazio said. “It’s our job as defenders to go
out and make every play we can, to support
them. That’s why it’s a team. We pick each
other up. I think we’re definitely ready for the
season to start.”
Defazio will patrol shortstop and he’ll have
the support of returner Jeff VonMoser. Dane
Vande Guche will have a large say on the
infield along with players like utility man
Trevin Craig. Dominic Orlando makes his
way from the WCAL-tournament champion
Serra Padres over to CSM where he’s see
some time at first base.
Willams only lists two outfield-specific
players on his roster, both freshman, but that’s
is misleading considering CSM’s strength this
year comes from it’s flexibility and multiplic-
ity of its players.
Chief among those if All-American returner
Joe Armstrong, who’s patrol centerfield after
hitting .320 last season and slugging .444.
Jarett Costa and his .295 average will be huge
as well.
Pulling the strings though is Defazio, who
hit .295 last year while slugging at a .462 clip.
His .838 OPS and 19 extra-base hits led last
season’s freshmen.
“We’ve had years where there has been nine
guys in the lineup for just about the entire
year,” Williams said. “I’ve had other years
where you can mix and match. It’s fun to be
able to do this. I think it’s something that we
are considering one of our strengths this year.
“I think we can put together some pretty
good lineups. We do have some versatility,
what we can do with right-left matchups. We
do have some team speed.”
And as always, the expectations at CSM
could not be any higher — conference title, a
spot in the Final Four and eventually a state
“That’s been an ongoing theme since I
arrived in 1995 and will continue to be,”
Wiliams said. “If they do change (expecta-
tions), I need to get out of coaching. That’s the
way I’ve always looked at it.”
Preseason No. 1 CSM carries unknowns into new baseball season
“We really go in a little bit blind if you will. But
you really don’t know until you get the other
team in the dugout and see how the guys perform”.

Sequoia’s play in the first half, however,
made it clear it was only a matter of time before
the Cherokees put something together offen-
sively. They didn’t wait too long as just 10 min-
utes into the second half they found the back of
the net. Phoebe Hopp received a pass about 30
yards from the Mills net. She turned and sent a
delicate through ball to the top of the penalty
box. Jackie Hutchinson raced in and, with a
defender on her shoulder, corralled the ball,
took a touch and blasted a shot from 16 yards
out that found the roof of the net for a 1-0
Sequoia lead.
That goal appeared to jump-start the Vikings,
who realized they needed to get some offense
going to have any chance at a win. About mid-
way through the second half, Mills had its best
opportunity to score. Olivia Mullins sent a diag-
onal ball toward the left corner where Ciara
Donlon chased it down and sent a shot on
frame. It was over the goalkeeper’s head and
appeared to be the tying goal, but it skimmed
off the crossbar and back into the field of play,
where it was cleared out by the Sequoia defense
for a Mills corner kick, which amounted to
Moments later, the Cherokees all but put the
game away. When a Mills defender failed to
clear a ball away deep in her own territory,
Emma Martino ran by her, took the ball in stride
and broke in on the Mills goal. She carried it
deep into the penalty box before flipping a shot
with the outside of her right foot past the goal-
keeper and into the far right corner of the net for
the final score of the game.
“I think we did a better job in the second half
of just getting shots off,” Schmidt said.
Mills had one more opportunity to make the
Cherokees nervous, but Sequoia goalkeeper
Sophia Perez made the save of the day when she
dove to her left to push aside a Mullins shot
from the top of the box.
“Their ’keeper had a fantastic save,” said
Mills coach Caroline Tiziani. “Sequoia was the
better team today. We made a couple of mis-
While Sequoia is in the driver’s seat for the
Ocean Division title, the Cherokees will not rest
or take anyone for granted.
“We know we have a target on our back,”
Schmidt said. “There are good teams in this
league. Just because we beat [a team] once
doesn’t mean we’ll beat them again.”

Carlmont threatened those advantages.
The Scots shot 2 of 14 from the floor to
begin the game and saw themselves down 17-
7 after one quarter. Matt Wong, the Mills
guard, outscored Carlmont by himself in quar-
ter one with eight points including a stretch of
seven unanswered that help build the Viking
But Carlmont surged back to begin the sec-
ond quarter. Upping their defensive intensity,
the Scots went on a 6-0 run. But it was around
that time that Carlmont saw things not go its
way again.
First, their point guard and best defender,
Mduduzi Hlatshawyo, picked up his third foul
— the latter was a back-breaker considering it
came on a 3-point attempt which increased
Mills’ lead to seven and sent him to the bench.
The foul shots by Serreno Esponilla were
magnified when No. 24 turned around and
knocked down a 3 on the next offensive pos-
session to get Mills its10-point lead back.
“It was huge,” Low said of Hlatshawyo’s
third foul. “Anyone can see what happened
after that. We struggled. It’s a 17-year old kid
and he got wrapped up in the tempo of the
game. It was a killer.”
But to Carlmont’s credit, they didn’t keel
over immediately and actually closed the
quarter on a 7-2 run to trail only by five at the
“At halftime, I thought we were there,” Low
said. “But again, you’re coming from behind
and you run out of gas. And then, what I think
happens is every play, on offense and defense,
becomes magnified.”
Carlmont came out of the locker room and
scored the first basket to trim the lead to three
thus flirting with completing an impressive
But then Joseph Worku caught fire and took
over the quarter. After Carlmont got as close
three again, No. 21’s drives to the bucket net-
ted him a pair of baskets and his 3-pointer
near quarter’s end really deflated the Scots.
He also brought down four huge rebounds.
“Joe did a lot of good things out there,”
Hanson said. “He hit some shots and had key
rebounds. It was a good effort by him.”
Mills’ lead was back up to 10 by the end of
the third quarter and actually increased it all
the way to 15 during certain stretches of the
“I thought we played better today as far as
effort goes,” Low said. “Being more aggres-
sive on the offensive end than we were in our
last game. We beat Sequoia. But it’s not a tape
you would probably save in the archives.
From that standpoint, someone was going to
have to lose this game and unfortunately it
was us.”
Worku finished with 18 points and eight
rebounds. Wong got nicked a bit late in the
game but finished with 10 points.
For Carlmont, Michael Costello scored 10
points to pace all Scot scorers.

points in the final period to snap an 8-8 tie.
Phil Becerra then squeaked out a 3-2 win at
154, beating Cameron Peterson, who is
ranked No. 2 in CCS, with a two-point rever-
sal in the third period. Ulysses Molina
employed a cautious, tactical strategy to beat
Andrew Carroll 9-3 at 162. Chris Ippolito got
a two-point takedown in the third period to
win his 172-pound match 6-4.
“Chris Ippolito came to school with the flu
today,” Garcia said. “The only reason he came
to school was so he could wrestle tonight.”
Chad Thodos followed by picking up
Serra’s first pin of the night at 184. He quick-
ly built up a 10-3 lead before pinning his
opponent with 23 seconds left in the first peri-
od. Reese Parker ran Serra’s winning streak to
seven straight to open the meet, working
through a bum shoulder to record a 5-0 win at
St. Francis finally got on the scoreboard
with a Brandon Retuta 6-1 win at 220, but
John Beering got the Padres right back on
track with a first-round pin at heavyweight.
When Luis Alvarez pinned his opponent with
26 second left in the match at 108 pounds, it
gave Serra a 36-3 lead, an insurmountable
lead with four matches left.
St. Francis managed to win three of those
final four matches, but the most exciting was
Hernandez’s double-overtime win at 115 over
Albert Lujan Arias.
“He surprised me,” Hernandez said. “I had-
n’t seen him wrestle. Next time, I’ll be more
The first three rounds of regulation went by
without either wrestler recording a point. In
the first overtime, Hernandez went for a dou-
ble-leg takedown, but he could never gain
control as Lujan Arias held on for dear life.
After the one-minute overtime period went by
the board, the officials put 30 seconds up for
the second overtime. This time, starting in the
down position, Hernandez escaped Lujan
Arias’ hold for one point. Following that 30-
second period, another 30-second period was
put up, giving Lujan Arias one last gasp at
tying or winning the match.
Instead, it was Hernandez who recorded a
two-point near fall to take the match 3-0.
“Late in the round, I think of all the training
I do … on my own time. I tell myself there’s
no way I’m going to give this up,” Hernandez

NEW ORLEANS — Mario Manningham
hobbled into the Superdome stands on crutch-
es and found an out-of-the-way seat to watch
his San Francisco teammates go through
media day frenzy on the field below, his emo-
tions mixed.
It’s been nearly two weeks since the 49ers
wide receiver underwent reconstructive sur-
gery on his left knee and almost a year since
he made the catch of his life in the New York
Giants’ Super Bowl victory.
Manningham hoped to be playing on the
New Orleans turf Sunday, when the 49ers face
the Baltimore Ravens in the franchise’s first
Super Bowl in 18 years and with a perfect 5-0
championship record to protect. Instead, the
soft-spoken wideout could win another ring,
this time as a spectator.
“Possibility,” he said of capturing back-to-
back titles. “This is different for me right now.
I’m not down, I just wish I could help my
team. You’re never down. It’s not bitterness.
It’s not like I did something for me not to be
out there. I’m not out there because of injury.”
Yet this is hardly how Manningham envi-
sioned it when he left the Giants and headed
out West to play for Jim Harbaugh and the
team he helped beat in last year’s NFC cham-
pionship game.
He did his very best not to sound glum. The
crutches and bulky knee brace said it for him
Tuesday morning.
As much as Manningham wants to be out
there to help the NFC champion Niners (13-4-
1) this weekend in the Big Easy, he realizes
it’s rare enough just to return to the NFL’s
showcase in consecutive years — with differ-
ent teams.
That’s something special to take from this
unique Super Bowl experience.
“I don’t think that’s by coincidence,” fellow
injured wide receiver Kyle Williams said.
“Mario’s a great player. Any team that he gets
on he’s instantly going to make better.”
While having the appreciation of his team-
mates sure helps, that doesn’t make it easier
now. Not after that spectacular over-the-shoul-
der 38-yard catch between two defenders in
which he managed to stay inbounds to start
the game-winning, 88-yard touchdown drive
in last season’s 21-17 Super Bowl victory
against New England.
The reception highlighted a five-catch day
for 73 yards.

Terrell Suggs stood up, threw
down his microphone, kicked over
his chair with a back heel as he
stepped down from his podium, and
then kicked over a cooler.
Onlookers laughed, satisfied that
the Baltimore Ravens’ mischievous
linebacker had properly punctuated
the frenetic, free-for-all known as
Super Bowl media day.
Suggs plays a central role in one
of the more intimidating defenses in
the NFL, and at least some of the
conversation involved football, and
what it would take to slow down San
Francisco quarterback Colin
Kaepernick in Sunday’s NFL cham-
pionship game.
But media day is never just about
football, not even when the players
are interviewing each other.
Posing as a reporter, defensive
end Arthur Jones asked Suggs which
staple of Louisiana cuisine he pre-
ferred, gumbo or jambalaya.
“That’s a good question, and I’m
glad you asked that, Arthur,” Suggs
said. “Definitely gumbo.”
Suggs also was asked if he is the
best dancer in the locker room: “No
way. ‘Be Nasty,’ (safety) Bernard
Pollard — he’s definitely the best
dancer. And I think if we get this
done come Sunday, you all will get
to see a good dose of it.”
Katherine Webb credits a couple
of camera shots of her watching the
BCS national title game in Miami
with landing her at the Super Bowl
in New Orleans.
Otherwise known as Miss
Alabama USA and the girlfriend of
Crimson Tide quarterback A.J.
McCarron, Webb has been hired by
TV’s “Inside Edition” to be its game
“It’s so exciting and absolutely
crazy at the same time. It’s hap-
pened so fast. I feel like I’m living
on a plane but it’s a great journey,”
said Webb, who was making her first
trip to New Orleans for her first
Super Bowl.

First, a confession. I don’t watch the Super
Bowl. As a matter of fact, I rarely even know
who is playing. Still, I’m well aware that it is
far and away America’s largest secular holi-
day and that the celebration requires not only
watching the game on television, but also eat-
ing a hefty snack or meal while doing so.
Naturally, such a manly event calls for
manly cuisine, dishes designed to be eaten by
hand and that will stick to the ribs. The key
food groups are meat and melted cheese,
preferably deep-fried.
Buffalo-style chicken wings and chicken
nuggets are just the sort of thing deep-fried
deliciousness we’re talking about. And my
recipe marries the two and, incredibly, does so
in a way that simultaneously satisfies the soul
and keeps the blood whistling through the old
There are three reasons we all love fried
food. First, the food is moist and juicy.
Second, the crust is crispy. And third — and
this is a well-kept secret — anything cooked
in fat tastes better than food cooked without it
because fat amplifies flavor even if you don’t
taste the fat itself. My biggest challenge in the
creation of this recipe was to construct a crisp
crust without deep-frying the chicken in a vat
of fat.
I worked out a delicious home-style version
of chicken nuggets that requires no deep-fry-
ing years ago. I started with chicken tenders,
those little flaps of chicken meat attached to
the underside of each chicken breast. They’re
as meaty as boneless, skinless chicken breasts,
but they’re much cheaper because they’re
smaller, and because of a tough little tendon
that runs down the middle of each tender.
So I tenderized each tender — including the
tendon — by soaking it in buttermilk before
cooking it, a technique I’d learned from
Southern home cooks back when I did my
call-in show on the Food Network. I flavored
the buttermilk with garlic and my favorite
smoky hot sauce (Tabasco Chipotle), then
threw in a hefty pinch of salt to create a brine.
The chicken luxuriated in this buttermilk
bath for several hours, after which I coated it
with a mixture of breadcrumbs and panko (for
extra crunch), sauteed it in olive oil, and
served it up with a wedge of lemon.
This recipe was an immediate hit at our
house and quickly became part of the weekly
line-up. But though I’d avoided deep-frying,
the dish was still fairly caloric because the
crumb mixture soaked up oil like a sponge. I
solved that problem for this version of the
recipe by using vegetable oil cooking spray
on the chicken and cooking it not in a pan, but
in the top third of a hot oven.
If it is not quite as crispy as the sauteed ver-
sion, it is nonetheless ridiculously flavorful. I
achieved this effect by adding a blue cheese
dipping sauce, which borrows one of the
trademark ingredients of Buffalo chicken
wings. Traditionally, the wings are tossed in a
mixture of hot sauce and butter after they
come out of the hot oil. But I didn’t want to
sog up my finished product, so I recommend
dipping the finished baked nuggets, first in the
hot sauce, then in the blue cheese. I think you
will agree that this combo is a touchdown.
Start to finish: 2 hours 30 minutes (15 min-
utes active)
Servings: 4
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot sauce (my
favorite for this recipe is Tabasco Chipotle),
2 cups plus 6 tablespoons buttermilk, divid-
1 pound chicken tenders (or chicken breasts
cut into 3-by-1-inch strips, 1/2-inch thick)
3/4 cup whole-wheat Italian seasoned
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, salt,
2 tablespoons of the hot sauce and 2 cups of
the buttermilk. Whisk until the salt is dis-
solved. Add the chicken tenders and stir to
coat well with the marinade. Cover and refrig-
erate for at least 2 hours and up to 10 hours.
When ready to cook, heat the oven to 425 F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and
spray it with olive oil cooking spray.
Healthier take on Super Bowl grub: Buffalo tenders
There are three reasons we all love fried food. First, the food is moist and juicy. Second, the
crust is crispy.And third — and this is a well-kept secret — anything cooked in fat tastes better
than food cooked without it because fat amplifies flavor even if you don’t taste the fat itself.

ooking for a few simple ways to
freshen up the go-to dish of the
Super Bowl? We cobbled together a
mighty tasty basic guacamole, then came up
with four ways to turn basic into unbeliev-
ably good.
If sweet and heat are your style, go for
guac mixed with brown sugar candied bacon
and hot sauce. Heat fiends will prefer the
corn and chipotle blend, while those who
favor the exotic touch might like the shrimp
and mango version. And for those who want
it all? A roasted fresh salsa guac.
Start to finish: 10 minutes
Servings: 12
4 Hass avocados, skins and pits removed
4 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 ground black pepper
In a medium bowl, use a fork or potato
masher to mash the avocados. The gua-
camole should be mostly smooth, but with
visible chunks. Mix in the lime juice, cumin,
salt and pepper. Proceed with the recipe
using one of the following mix-in combina-
Guacamole is best served right away and
at room temperature. If you must make it
ahead and refrigerate it, cover it with plastic
wrap, gently pressing the wrap over the
entire surface of the guacamole. This, com-
bine with the acid of the lime juice, should
prevent the guacamole from browning.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then
set a wire rack over it.
Coat the rack with
cooking spray. Arrange
1/2 pound of bacon
evenly on the rack.
Sprinkle the tops of the
bacon liberally with
brown sugar. Bake at
350 F for 20 minutes, or
until the bacon is lightly
browned, crisped and
the sugar has
caramelized. Let the
bacon cool, then cut it
into bite-size chunks.
Mix a splash of hot sauce (more or less, to
taste) into the base guacamole recipe, then
mix in three-quarters of the chopped candied
bacon. Sprinkle the remaining bacon over the
guacamole, then serve.
In a medium skillet over medium-high,
heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add 1/4 cup
diced red onion, 1 cup of corn kernels (if
canned, drain them very well) and 3 minced
cloves of garlic. Saute for 2 minutes, then
remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in 1
diced canned chipotle pepper (packed in
adobo sauce). Stir the mixture into the base
guacamole recipe, as well as 1 tablespoon
(more or less, to taste) of the adobo sauce
from the can.
Thaw a 9-ounce bag frozen cooked and
peeled baby shrimp, then drain and pat them
dry. Peel 1 mango, then cut the flesh away
from the pit. Finely chop the mango, then
stir it, the shrimp and a hefty splash of hot
sauce into the base guacamole recipe.
When preparing the base guacamole
recipe, omit the salt.
Slice 1 pint of cherry or grape tomatoes in
half, then toss them with 2 tablespoons olive
oil, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt
and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper.
Spread the tomatoes evenly over a rimmed
baking sheet and roast at 425 F for 15 min-
utes, or until lightly browned.
Stir the roasted tomatoes, a 12-ounce jar of
roasted red peppers (drained, patted dry and
diced), 1/4 cup diced red onion, 1 diced
jalapeno pepper (with or without seeds,
depending on your heat tolerance) and 4
minced cloves of garlic into the base gua-
camole recipe.

Archie joins Peyton in peddling pizza
DENVER — Peyton Manning figured one good Papa
deserved another.
Manning’s father, Archie, is joining his son as a Papa
John’s pitchman, spearheading the pizza
chain’s coin-flip promotion at the Super
Bowl in the family’s hometown of New
While he was sitting out last season
with his neck injury, Peyton Manning
starred in a Papa John’s Super Bowl com-
mercial with Jerome Bettis. Manning was
dressed up as a referee. “Hey, a man’s
gotta work, OK” he told Bettis.
After signing with the Broncos, Peyton
Manning invested in 21 of the company’s
pizza stores in the Denver area. More recently, Papa John’s
approached Archie about being a spokesman for the Super
Bowl promotion. Starting Sunday, fans can go online and
choose heads or tails for the opening coin toss. The winners
will get free pizza.
“Only thing that would be better is if the Broncos were
playing in the game,” Archie Manning said. “Or the Giants.
Or both. But it’s going to be good stuff.”
Before last season, when Eli Manning’s Giants lost the
coin toss, the NFC had won 14 straight flips. The odds of
that happening are around 16,000-1.
Food brief
In a shallow bowl combine the whole-
wheat and panko breadcrumbs. In anoth-
er small bowl, whisk together the
remaining 6 tablespoons of buttermilk,
the mayonnaise, blue cheese and lemon
juice. Transfer to a ramekin for dipping.
Pour the remaining 1/4 cup of hot sauce
into a second ramekin for dipping.
Use a colander to drain the chicken,
but do not pat it dry. Dip each chicken
piece in the breadcrumb mixture, mak-
ing sure it is coated well on both sides.
Arrange the chicken in a single layer on
the prepared baking sheet, then spritz the
tops with olive oil cooking spray.
Bake on the oven’s middle shelf for 10
minutes. Turn the chicken pieces over
and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or
until they are just cooked through. Let
cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a
platter. Serve with both dipping sauces.

In September 2011, the National
Transportation and Safety Board posted
its final 140-page report for the year-
long investigation of the Sept. 9, 2010
explosion and fire in San Bruno. The
gas-fed flames were roaring for more
than 90 minutes before workers were
able to manually close valves to cut off
the ruptured line. While a number of
families have rebuilt their homes, the
work in the area is still ongoing.
On the civil side, there were 447 plain-
tiffs involved in lawsuits related to the
2010 explosion as of Dec. 31, according
to PG&E. Three of those voluntarily dis-
missed their suits and 112 had settled.
While opening statements had been
scheduled for March, lawyers for both
sides recently announced an effort to set-
tle the suits outside of court. A main
push to resolve things outside of court
could be the October decision by Judge
Steven Dylina that victims could seek
punitive damages in the case against the
utility company.

Government Center — is county
employee parking, but there are almost
800 spaces in the garage open to the
public. These spaces are free in the
evenings and on weekends.
The garage is a few blocks from
Theatre Way, but Mahrou says drivers
are spending more time trying to hunt
for closer parking than it would take
them to walk over from the county
“People are going around looking for
parking and causing a lot of traffic,” he
said. “I think it’s easier to walk a block
than try to find [closer] parking.”
City looks for alternatives
The city has been working with down-
town tenants and development contrac-
tors to ease the parking shortage.
“The city is trying to do as much as
they can,” said Alpio Barbara, vice pres-
ident of the Redwood City Downtown
Business Group. “They know they have
a problem on their hands.”
Barbara is part of a group of business
owners who met with the city last week
to talk about further parking options.
The group is still mulling over the idea
of having valet parking drop-offs near
City Hall and near the Old Spaghetti
Factory on Broadway, he said. The
group is also discussing having a free
shuttle run from the county parking
garage to downtown.
“We’re trying to find parking any way
we can because this is going to be a
problem for the next three to four
years,” said Barbara.
Bill Ekern, Redwood City’s commu-
nity development director, is leading the
city’s dialogue with businesses.
“We will renew efforts to help busi-
nesses to orient customers,” said Ekern,
adding the city is looking to create a
smartphone application that will show
drivers where the open spaces are down-
The multitude of development proj-
ects downtown is contributing to the
parking shortage, but the city will not
allow the numbers of construction
workers coming in to take up commer-
cial parking spaces, said Ekern.
When construction on the Redwood
Tower buildings begins, there could be
up to 300 people working on the site.
“We’re telling the developers that
we’re not going to issue passes to con-
tractors to use garage or street spaces
downtown,” he said. “They need to
come with us with a parking plan so that
they are responsible for their parking.”
Theatre Way is now opened up to traf-
fic on weekday evenings. There is a con-
crete delivery scheduled for this Friday
in which about eight trucks an hour for
about five or six hours will deliver a
total of about 330 cubic yards of con-
crete starting at 6:30 a.m., according to
city officials. The storm culvert reloca-
tion on Middlefield Road is expected to
last until March. After this phase is
completed, construction of the

PORT SAID, Egypt — Residents
of this Mediterranean coastal city
burying their dead from Egypt’s
wave of political violence vented
their fury at Egypt’s Islamist presi-
dent and the Muslim Brotherhood
on Tuesday, demanding his ouster
and virtually declaring a revolt
against his rule, as the head of the
military warned Egypt may collapse
under the weight of its turmoil.
Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’ strong-
ly worded comments, his first since
the crisis began, appeared aimed at
pushing both sides in Egypt’s politi-
cal divide to reconcile and find a
solution to the rapidly spreading
protests and riots across much of the
country the past six days.
But his breaking of his silence
falls heaviest on President
Mohammed Morsi, who has been
unable to contain the unrest by try-
ing a tough hand, as protesters
defied his declaration of a month-
long state of emergency and curfew

At least 60 people have been
killed and hundreds injured since
Thursday in clashes between police
and protesters angry over what they
call Islamists’ moves to monopolize
power and failure to address the
country’s multiple woes. In his
comments, el-Sissi signaled the mil-
itary would not move to put down
protesters, saying troops are in a
“grave predicament,” forced to bal-
ance between “avoiding confronta-
tion” with citizens and protecting
state institutions.

MEXICO CITY — Two months
after President Enrique Pena Nieto
took office promising to reduce vio-
lent crime, the killings linked to
Mexico’s drug cartels continue
Only the government’s talk about
them has dropped.
Eighteen members of a band and
its retinue were kidnapped and
apparently slain over the weekend
in the northern border state of
Nuevo Leon by gunmen who asked
them to name their cartel affiliation
before they were shot and dumped
in a well.
Fourteen prison-
ers and nine
guards died in an

Nine men were
slain Christmas

Pena Nieto has been mum,
instead touting education, fiscal and
energy reforms. On Monday, he told
a summit of Latin American and
Caribbean leaders in Chile that he
wants Mexico to focus on being a
player in solving world and region-
al problems.
Some political observers praise
him for trying to change the conver-
sation and presenting an alternative
face of Mexico. Critics suggest the
country’s new leaders believe that
the best way to solve a security cri-
sis is to create distractions.
“What Pena Nieto is doing is ...
sweeping violence under the rug in
hopes that no one notices,” said
security expert Jorge Chabat. “It can
be effective in the short term, until
the violence becomes so obvious
that you can’t change the subject.”
The Pena Nieto government
declined to respond publicly to the
critics. But in an interview last
month with the Associated Press, he
said he would not put any goals or
deadlines on his campaign against
organized crime and would focus on

Brazil police: Outdoor
flare started club fire
Penny-pinching by a band known for
its onstage pyrotechnic displays may
have cost more than 230 people their
lives at a nightclub in southern
Brazil, according to a police inspec-
tor leading the investigation into this
weekend’s deadly blaze.
Inspector Marcelo Arigony told
reporters at a news conference
Tuesday that members of the band
knowingly purchased flares meant
for outdoor use because they cost a
mere $1.25 a piece, compared with
the $35 price tag for an indoor flare.
“The flare lit was for outdoor use
only, and the people who lit them
know that,” said Arigony, adding that
members of the group acknowledged
regularly opting for the less expen-
sive flares. “They chose to buy those
because they were cheaper than those
that can be used indoors.”
U.S. eyes drone base in
Africa with al-Qaida in mind
WASHINGTON — Plans to base
unarmed American surveillance
drones in the African nation of Niger
highlight the Obama administration’s
growing concern about extremist
influences in the volatile region. They
also raise tough questions about how
to contain al-Qaida and other militant
groups without committing U.S.
ground forces in yet another war.
In the short run, a drone base
would enable the U.S. to give France
more intelligence on the militants
that French troops are fighting in
neighboring Mali. Over time it could
extend the reach not only of
American intelligence gathering but
also U.S. special operations missions
to strengthen Niger’s own security

told the Board of Supervisors yesterday
during his mid-year budget update.
The county will end the year with
$61.7 million less than last year and a
$14 million structural deficit that will
jump back up in the next five years.
Maltbie said primary reasons for the
deficit to reverse course are the “smooth-
ing” of remaining losses sustained by the
retirement fund in 2008-09 and the new
replacement jail. The jail would add
$16.4 million assuming that 320 beds
are filled and the county receives $80
million state construction funds. If the
county does not get the money, the
deficit will increase by $6.7 million.
Other expenses include salaries and
benefits which are expected to grow
$41.4 million, capital and IT initiatives,
contracts with outside service providers
and anticipated deficits in programs for
in-home health care and low-income
children’s insurance.
The deficit estimate doesn’t take into
account Measure A sales tax funds
which will begin accumulating in April
and have yet to be officially allocated.
The totals also don’t include major
budget issues that could hurt future
finances like extra property taxes known
as Education Revenue Augmentation
Funds, lawsuits stemming from the dis-
solution of redevelopment agencies,
realignment growth, health care reform
and possible shortfalls in the vehicle
license fee allotments.
That said, Maltbie’s projection was
positive, focusing on the recovering
economy and the concessions by
employees like increased contributions.
The contributions by county employ-
ees “cannot be underemphasized,”
Maltbie said, ticking off salary freezes
and workforce reductions as key factors.
The county does have some options
for helping to solve the structural deficit
such as reopening Camp Kemp at the
juvenile hall as a group home or other
living arrangement, leasing the Circle
Star towers for up to $2 million each and
using excess ERAF or Measure A
money to reduce long-term liabilities
like retirement health benefits.
For example, Maltbie said, if the board
puts aside $10 million annually in both
ERAF and Measure A money, the total
would be $200 million over the course
of 10 years which translates to about $16
million a year in hard dollars savings.
Subtracting the $16 million from the $21
million structural deficit is a $5 million
difference which, by that point, with a
$2 billion overall county budget, is
“essentially budget dust,” Maltbie said.
Supervisor Carole Groom favors using
ERAF over Measure A for liabilities
because residents voted for the tax to
enhance and create new programs. The
availability of the ERAF money was
another concern.
“If the worry is that ERAF goes away,
let’s use it early and quickly,” Groom said.
Supervisor Dave Pine also supports
the use of reserves and ERAF to pay
down some of those areas, particularly
pensions costs.
“It’s real operating savings when we
pay down liabilities and will make a big
contribution to the structural deficit as
well,” Pine said.
Maltbie reemphasized that ERAF is
the county’s own property taxes so the
governor’s proposed school funding
changes could have significant negative
consequences on how much is returned
from the state.
“They’re not some magical money
that the state graciously allows us to
use,” he said.
Even with the unknowns and
increased costs, Maltbie said the county
is in a good spot.
General fund reserve levels are main-
tained at around 20 percent of the budg-
et and the county is the only one
statewide with AAA rates from Moody’s
and Standard and Poor’s. The ratings
show that the county is well-managed
and financially viable as both a govern-
ment and an employer, Maltbie said.
This year marks the county’s shift to a
two-year budget cycle for fiscal years
2013-14 and 2014-15. The recommend-
ed budgets will now be presented in
September rather than June with period-
ic check-ins and reviews.
Maltbie is also suggested changing the
county’s department reserve policy,
shifting from each entity accumulating
balances within its own budget back to a
more traditional approach of keeping
reserves within the general fund.
The board will consider the recom-
mendation at a future meeting.

Shortly after Obama finished speaking,
cracks emerged between the White House
and the group of eight senators, which put
out their sproposals one day ahead of the
president. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a
potential 2016 presidential candidate,
faulted Obama for not making a citizen-
ship pathway contingent on tighter border
security, a central tenet of the lawmakers’
“The president’s speech left the impres-
sion that he believes reforming immigra-
tion quickly is more important than
reforming immigration right,” Rubio said
in a statement.
House Speaker John Boehner also
responded coolly, with spokesman
Brendan Buck saying the Ohio
Republican hoped the president would be
“careful not to drag the debate to the left
and ultimately disrupt the difficult work
that is ahead in the House and Senate.”
Despite possible obstacles to come, the
broad agreement between the White
House and bipartisan lawmakers in the
Senate represents a drastic shift in
Washington’s willingness to tackle immi-
gration, an issue that has languished for
years. Much of that shift is politically
motivated, due to the growing influence of
Hispanics in presidential and other elec-
tions and their overwhelming support for
Obama in November.
The separate White House and Senate
proposals focus on the same principles:
providing a way for most of the estimated
11 million people already in the U.S. ille-
gally to become citizens, strengthening
border security, cracking down on
employers who hire illegal immigrants
and streamlining the legal immigration
A consensus around the question of cit-
izenship could help lawmakers clear one
major hurdle that has blocked previous
immigration efforts. Many Republicans
have opposed allowing illegal immigrants
to become citizens, saying that would be
an unfair reward for people who have bro-
ken the law.
Details on how to achieve a pathway to
citizenship still could prove to be a major
sticking point between the White House
and the Senate group.
Obama and the Senate lawmakers all
want to require people here illegally to
register with the government, pass crimi-
nal and national security background
checks, pay fees and penalties as well as
back taxes and wait until existing immi-
gration backlogs are cleared before get-
ting in line for green cards. Neither pro-
posal backs up those requirements with
After achieving legal status, U.S. law
says people can become citizens after five
The Senate proposal says that entire
process couldn’t start until the borders
were fully secure and tracking of people
in the U.S. on visas had improved. Those
vague requirements would almost certain-
ly make the timeline for achieving citizen-
ship longer than what the White House is
The president urged lawmakers to avoid
making the citizenship pathway so diffi-
cult that it would appear out of reach for
many illegal immigrants.
“We all agree that these men and
women have to earn their way to citizen-
ship,” he said. “But for comprehensive
immigration reform to work, it must make
clear from the outset that there is a path-
way to citizenship.”
“It won’t be a quick process, but it will
be a fair process,” Obama added.
Another key difference between the
White House and Senate proposals is the
administration’s plan to allow same-sex
partners to seek visas under the same rules
that govern other family immigration. The
Senate principles do not recognize same-
sex partners, though Democratic lawmak-
ers have told gay rights groups that they
could seek to include that in a final bill.

aQuarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Guard against an
inclination to do things the hard way, especially
where your work is concerned. If you’re using an
ineffective procedure, try something different.
PisCes (Feb. 20-March 20) — Even if your hunches
are usually correct, if they are more negative than
positive, dump them as quickly as you can. Your
imagination may be playing tricks on you.
aries (March 21-April 19) — It’s time to phase out
something that isn’t living up to its potential in terms
of profts. The longer you stay with it, the more
money it will end up costing you.
taurus (April 20-May 20) — When pursuing an
objective, take care not to walk over others. It might
end up costing you far more than just time and money.
GeMini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t make the
mistake of thinking that aggressiveness is the same
as vision. Before imposing any of your ideas on your
co-workers, make sure they’re feasible.
CanCer (June 21-July 22) — Watch out for
any little changes that may have been made
to something without your or anybody else’s
knowledge. They could alter matters greatly.
LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It isn’t likely that you’ll be
proud of your efforts if you’re more interested in getting
things done than you are in getting them done right.
Quality over quantity is your mantra, today.
VirGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Although you will be
a keen observer, unfortunately your focus is likely
to be more on others’ failings than on their many
positive qualities.
LiBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It would be a huge
mistake on your part to spend funds you have
earmarked for something essential. If you’re not
disciplined in the handling of money, you’ll never get
sCOrPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Remember the
adage: “If it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it,” and
your life will be much easier. Don’t needlessly ask
for trouble.
saGittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You’re not
likely to look good in the eyes of others if you try to
shirk or displace blame. Spend your energy making
corrections, not accusations.
CaPriCOrn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Unless you pay
close attention to what you’re spending, you won’t
be a good manager of your money. Don’t shell out
what you can’t afford to lose.

jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
