NEW YORK — The stock market
is back.
Five and a half years after the start
of a frightening drop that erased $11
trillion from stock portfolios and
made investors despair of ever get-
ting their money back, the Dow
Jones industrial average has
regained all the losses suffered dur-
ing the Great Recession and reached
a new high. The blue-chip index
rose 125.95 points Tuesday and
closed at 14,253.77, topping the pre-
vious record of 14,164.53 on Oct. 9,
2007, by 89.24 points.
“It signals that things are getting
back to normal,” says Nicolas Colas,
chief market strategist at ConvergEx
Group, a brokerage. “Unemployment
is too high, eco-
nomic growth
too sluggish,
but stocks are

The new
record sug-
gests that
investors who
did not panic
and sell their stocks in the 2008-
2009 financial crisis have fully
recovered. Those who have reinvest-
ed dividends or added to their hold-
ings have done even better. Since
bottoming at 6,547.05 on March 9,
2009, the Dow has risen 7,706.72
points or 118 percent.

The prime suspect in the 2010
killing of an East Palo Alto activist
whose improper police confession
led to the murder case’s dismissal
was sentenced yesterday to four years
in prison for having three shanks in
his jail cell while awaiting trial.
Gregory Leon
Elarms’ sen-
tence came after
Judge Craig
Parsons denied
the 60-year-old
Pittsburg man’s
request to with-
draw his no con-
test plea. In
brief remarks to the court against
the advice of his attorney, Elarms
said a recalculation of his earned
custody credit was “what I’m bas-
ing my decision on.” In the formal
motion, Elarms also claims he was
not advised the pleas could be used
against him and that his defense
attorney said his dismissed homi-
cide case could be used in the pro-
bation sentencing report to “cast
him in a negative light.”
Parsons found neither a good
cause, even questioning exactly
what Elarms meant by the first basis
because the convictions do not
count as strike. Parsons said the
original homicide case and current
weapons charges are “inseparable”
because the one explains why
Elarms was in custody at the time
he committed the other but said he
would not use the murder allega-
tions in doling out sentencing.
The weapons charges are “serious
crimes” and probation is not war-
ranted,” Parsons said.

The Peninsula Joint Powers Board
is expected to finalize a new agree-
ment with the California High-Speed
Rail Authority Thursday that scraps
early plans for a four-track project on
the Peninsula in favor of the “blend-
ed system” that will keep the overall
project primarily within Caltrain’s
existing two-track corridor.
The board’s action will terminate
two old agreements made in 2004
and 2009 that embraced the full
buildout of the system, with early
designs showing a project primarily

Kathleen Kane, East Palo Alto’s city attor-
ney, will soon take over for Burlingame City
Attorney Gus Guinan after the City Council
approved her contract Monday.
In August, City Attorney Gus Guinan
announced plans to retire early this year after
four years of service. He officially retires
March 9. Also on Monday, the Burlingame
council approved a contract keeping Guinan
on as interim city attorney until April 1,
Kane’s first day.
Kane’s contract calls for a salary of
$177,500. Guinan will be paid $92.73 per
hour from March 9 through April 1.
At the same meeting, the council decided
the city manager will have the ability to
appoint a person to the city clerk role.
In 2009, Burlingame voters decided the city
clerk would no longer be an elected position.
City Clerk Mary Ellen Kearney, most recently
elected in 2009, would serve through 2013
when the post would become appointed. But
how to appoint the position had yet to be
determined. With the direction, Kearney
would be able to apply for the job after her
term is complete.
In other business, the council received a let-
ter from San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee request-
ing that Burlingame follow its lead by adopt-
ing two new laws banning the sale and pos-
session of hollow-point ammunition and
requiring gun dealers to report individual pur-
chases of 500 rounds of ammunition or more
to the local police department. Currently,
Burlingame has no retail establishments that
sell guns or ammunition so most of the pro-
posed rules wouldn’t be applicable to the city,
Police Chief Ed Wood wrote in a staff report.
As such, the council followed Wood’s recom-
mendation not to introduce the legislation.
However, the council agreed with Wood about
signing the Sandy Hook Promise which asks
communities to be “safer through common
sense solutions to similar acts of violence.”

Belmont-Redwood Shores
considers parcel tax study
Officials in the Belmont-Redwood Shores Elementary
School District won’t seek to extend or increase two parcel
taxes this spring but are interested in studying the issue.
Currently, Belmont-Redwood Shores has two parcel taxes.
Measure G, a $96 a year parcel tax for 10 years, passed in
2004. It generates about $1.2 million annually. In 2008, voters
passed Measure U, a seven-year $78 annual tax that brings in
about $950,000 per year. Both will end by the 2015-16 school
year. Last month, the Board of Trustees held a public hearing
to discuss extending and possibly increasing the parcel tax
amounts but decided to hold off on going back to voters in the
near future. On Thursday, the board will consider approving
two contracts to study the same topics.
Before the board are contracts with Godbe Research, not to
exceed $26,000, to conduct focus groups and with TBWB
Strategies, not to exceed $6,500 per month, to assist in con-
ducting a voter opinion research project regarding a potential
parcel tax.
When the conversations started last year, the district’s future
budget looked like it needed a boost. In January, Gov. Jerry
Brown suggested changes in school funding. The impacts of
the new system make budgeting a challenge for most districts
who will be learning the new system this spring.
Dashing diner pleads not guilty
The San Carlos restaurant diner who reportedly dashed off
without paying for $70 worth off food has something a little
bigger on his plate now — criminal
Patrick James Higgins, 43, pleaded not
guilty to a felony count of second-degree
burglary and a misdemeanor count of
obtaining food without paying. Higgins
also asked for a court-appointed attorney
and returns to court March 15 for a prelim-
inary hearing.
San Carlos police nabbed Higgins last
Friday, March 1 after employees of
Sneaker’s Pub and Grill on San Carlos Avenue flagged them
down. Higgins reportedly had enjoyed a full meal before head-
ing out the rear exit. The workers followed him out the alley
and alerted a nearby parking enforcement officer.
Higgins, who is on parole for a 2010 conviction for evading
police in a car, remains in custody on $10,000 bail.
Judge appoints director to oversee Oakland police
A federal judge has appointed a former police commis-
sioner from Baltimore to oversee the embattled Oakland
police department. U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson on
Monday surprisingly selected Thomas C. Frazier as a com-
pliance director that will give him broad authority over the
beleaguered force.
In his new role, Frazier will have the power to seek the dis-
missal of the police chief and his command staff and could
overrule major department decisions.
Oakland officials and two lawyers seeking a receivership of the
department agreed late last year to appoint a compliance direc-
tor, avoiding an unprecedented federal takeover of the force.

women and girls to experience a free
“discovery flight” at the San Carlos
This event is designed to introduce
women and girls to the world of aviation
and celebrate the contributions of
women in the air and space industry.
Women of Aviation events promote
awareness of the many opportunities the
industry offers in dozens of different
careers in the air and on the ground. To
demonstrate the extraordinary lifelong
benefits of pursuing a career in aviation,
WOAW has invited bestselling author
and Air Force veteran, Graciela
Tiscareño-Sato, to speak at Hiller
Aviation Museum at 5:30 p.m. Saturday,
March 9. Tiscareño-Sato, a graduate of
the Aerospace Studies Air Force Reserve

Boise-bound plane makes
emergency San Jose landing
An Alaska Airlines flight bound for
Boise has been forced to make an
emergency landing in San Jose
because of an engine fire.
Airline spokeswoman Bobbie Egan
said the captain of Flight #2404 was
alerted about the fire in the right engine
about 20 minutes after the aircraft he
was piloting had taken off from Mineta
San Jose International Airport on
Tuesday morning.
Egan says the captain turned the de
Havilland Dash 8-400 plane around and
safely returned to the airport.
San Jose International spokeswoman
Rosemary Barnes says the flight’s 48
passengers got off on the runway, where
they were greeted by firefighters.
Barnes says the runway remained
closed for about an hour, but that service
at the airport was not disrupted.

Before last week, the program only provided free landlines to
the needy. But on Thursday, the California Public Utilities
Commission approved two companies’ proposals to offer free
mobile service funded in part through the Federal
Communications Commission’s Lifeline program.
Bevan Dufty, San Francisco’s head of homeless initiatives,
plans to send staff to low-income housing complexes and shel-
ters in the coming weeks to make sure the city’s least fortunate
know how to apply. Dufty and advocates for people experiencing
homelessness have been pressing the commission to approve the
program for three years, saying that cellphone Lifeline plans
have been approved in most other states.
“We are very excited by this,” Dufty said. “It will help people
move forward. It will empower them, and we in San Francisco
are going to be a model city for this program.”
Romonica Grayson, who lives in the city’s Sunnydale public
housing project, said having a mobile phone will mean being
able to communicate easily with loved ones, and coordinate
social events, parent services and other activities at Sunnydale.
“Everything will be different now,” Grayson said as she picked
up application information earlier this week. “I can finally be
sure I will be able to get ahold of people to do what I need to do
in a timely fashion.”

allow his defense attorney time to
collect evidence he may use to seek a
new venue and removal of the prose-
Both defense attorney Jonathan
McDougall and prosecutor Melissa
McKowan agreed to a May 13 trial
date but that won’t be confirmed until
March 11 when William Hamilton
Ayres physically appears in court. He
was absent from Tuesday’s proceed-
ings because of his frail health,
according to McDougall, but Judge
Robert Foiles wouldn’t cement a new
trial date until he could personally
order the 81-year-old man back to
Ayres’ wife, Solveig, was present.
Ayres, whose initial trial ended
with a hung jury, was originally
scheduled for a second round March
11. Instead, McDougall said he need-
ed more time to argue that significant
media coverage may make an unbi-
ased jury pool impossible and that
McKowan herself may be the most
persuasive witness to how the alleged
victims and other witnesses have had
their memories and testimony taint-
ed. The
California State

McDougall has subpoenaed its docu-
ments to prepare a request she recuse
herself from the case. A State Bar
attorney plans to file a motion to
squash the subpoena.
Bar spokeswoman Laura Ernde
said she could not comment on the
allegations “due to the confidential
nature of attorney disciplinary inves-
McDougall claims in his continu-
ance motion that McKowan has indi-
cations that one of Ayres’ victims lied
while testifying during the first trial.
The witnesses, now adults, claimed
Ayres abused them under the guise of
medical exams when they were ages
9 to 13 between 1988 and 1996.
The document also claims
McKowan is aware of the “false and
manipulative actions of a potential
witness on the case” in reference to
Balfour. McDougall said Balfour and
others have “injected themselves into
the evidence” which has altered the
memories and testimony of several
witnesses. McKowan has stated in
writing that Balfour has been “fabri-
cating dozens of allegations,” accord-
ing to the motion which also points
fingers at the parents of alleged vic-
tim, Orion B. as having contaminated
the prosecution witnesses.
Balfour said that McDougall is
“desperately trying to clutch at straws
that don’t even exist.”
She similarly called the allegations
of witness tainting “nonsense” and
pointed out that the alleged victims
for whom Ayres is being tried were
found by police not her.
“I never had any conversation with
any of the in-statute victims about
their molestation, didn’t see them tes-
tify and in most of the cases, don’t
even know the names of these vic-
tims,” she said.
In a hearing separate than that con-
cerning the delay, Judge Beth
Freeman gave McKowan 30 days to
comply with McDougall’s request for
evidence including newly retained
experts. McDougall states in the doc-
ument the prosecution has failed to
turn over a significant amount of dis-
covery requested since December.
Tuesday’s dual hearings are the lat-
est unexpected turns in a case that has
stretched past a decade, including
jury trials on Ayres’ guilt and mental
fitness and included the bombshell
last summer that doctors believe he
exaggerated Alzheimer’s-related
dementia to avoid prosecution.
Prior to his 2007 arrest, Ayres was
well known as president of the
American Academy of Child and
Adolescent Psychiatry and for host-
ing the sex education series “Time of
Your Life.” Ayres received juvenile
court referrals up through 2004 even
as San Mateo police continued its
Police began looking at him in
2002 after a former patient accused
him of molestation during the 1970s
when he was 13. After a U.S.
Supreme Court ruling on the statute
of limitations nixed criminal prosecu-
tion, the victim and Ayres reached a
confidential settlement in July 2005.
In a deposition for the lawsuit, Ayres
reportedly admitted conducting phys-
ical exams of patients as part of his
care. The 2009 criminal trial on nine
felony counts of child molestation
stemming from six patients ended
with a hung jury. A subsequent trial
on his competency also ended with a
mistrial and prosecutors agreed he
could be committed to Napa State
However, the case gained new trac-
tion last year when the hospital sent
Ayres back to San Mateo County on
the strength of a report concluding he
was competent and was malingering,
the medical term for faking or exag-
gerating a condition. After a three-
day hearing, Judge Jack Grandsaert
reinstated criminal charges and set a
trial date.
Although the case is largely the
same, one charged count will be
dropped as well prior to a retrial out
of concern the witness referenced by
McDougall, known in court as Steven

Steven S. claimed he was sexually
abused while incarcerated as a juve-
nile. During the first trial, a police
detective under defense questioning
said Steven S. was asked what he
remembered about the physical
“I wouldn’t consider it molesting,”
Steven S. stated.
Steven S. later said he found the
interaction improper.
“I considered it out of the ordinary
that a doctor would do that, especial-
ly a psychiatrist,” Steven S. said in his
The detective also testified that
Orion B. described his incident as
“something he hadn’t thought about
in a long time” and that the exams
“coincided with the times his med-

Studying magnet schools within
the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District is the
recommendation before the board
Thursday which comes two weeks
after parents expressed anger after
being left out of plans to switch the
focus of one elementary school.
In February, the board decided to
pull an item to apply for a magnet
grant that calls for moving Parkside
Elementary School to a single focus
by implementing a STEM — sci-
ence, technology, engineering and
math — program, explaining that
parents were not part of the process.
While there was not a vote, parents
at the packed meeting spoke about
the lack of communication and loss
of trust that came from the process
leading to the proposed change. On
Thursday, the board will consider
recommending a study of the mag-
net schools to be presented during
the board’s April 11 meeting,
according to the staff report pre-
pared by Superintendent Cynthia
Currently, Parkside operates two
programs: Montessori and a tradi-
tional school. News of a possible
change at the school has been circu-
lating for months. On Friday, Feb. 8,
parents got a voicemail from the
principal announcing a meeting
Monday, Feb. 11 to discuss changes.
During that special meeting, parents
learned that plans included phasing
out the Montessori program then
introducing the STEM instruction
during the 2014-15 school year.
During the Feb. 21 board meeting,
Simms explained that the district
learned of a federal grant opportuni-
ty with an application deadline of
March 1, which moved up the deci-
sion for a change and excluded the
step of working with parents, she
said during the meeting.
Since that meeting, Simms met
with Parkside parents representing
both the Montessori and traditional
programs along with the PTA presi-
dent and principal. Simms commit-
ted to contacting parents who origi-
nally applied to the Parkside
Elementary School Montessori
kindergarten to determine their
interest in attending the school in
the fall.
Originally, the district had consid-
ered phasing out the change in the
2014-15 school year allowing
another Montessori class to start at
Parkside in the fall. However, as
applications for the program were
reviewed during the first week of
February, only eight had applied to
the program for kindergarten in the
fall, said Molly Barton, assistant
superintendent of student services.
Barton had said that wasn’t enough
to sustain the program.
This year, the district operates 16
elementary schools and four middle
schools. Eight of the district’s ele-
mentary schools and two of its mid-
dle schools offer magnet programs,
according to a staff report.
Changing to a magnet school with
one focus does take away the neigh-
borhood school status from those
who live in the area — another
change parents felt should be dis-
cussed before taking away the tradi-
tional option at Parkside.
At the same meeting, the board
will learn details of a preliminary
design for the proposed new school
campus at Bowditch Middle School.
SCORE, also known as the
Superintendent’s Committee on
Overcrowding Relief, decided in
August to suggest moving fifth
grade students to Bowditch to solve

PACIFICA — Crews removed an
82-foot yacht from a Northern
California beach early Tuesday after
authorities say three people stole it,
stocked it with pizza and beer, then
drove it a little more than 20 miles
before running it aground.
The luxury vessel “Darlin” was
pulled from the sand at Pacifica
State Beach, where it was stuck for
nearly a day.
Pacifica police arrested Leslie
Gardner, 63, Dario Mira, 54, and
Lisa Modawell, 56, on suspicion of
grand theft and conspiracy. Each of
the three was being held on more
than $1 million bail.
The strange tale began early
Monday when beachgoers phoned
police to report the sailboat in trouble.
The yacht was trapped in shallow
water at low tide and unable to get
back out to sea. A few wetsuit-clad
surfers had paddled out in the frigid
water near the grounded vessel as its
hull was battered by 4- to 5-foot
After television news reports of
the grounding aired, the boat’s
owner called police to report it
stolen from Sausalito, about 20
miles to the north, police said.
Authorities made brief contact
with the three people on board, but
the people at first refused to disem-
Once officers were alerted that it
was a stolen vessel, police surround-
ed it with guns drawn. After a few
hours, the trio agreed to be taken off
of the yacht, jumping onto personal
watercraft and being quickly ferried
to shore.
Pacifica police Capt. Dan Steidle
said there was some indication the
trio was planning to take the vessel
to Pillar Point Harbor, about 10
miles south of where they ended up.
“They have been less than cooper-
ative with our investigative efforts,”
Steidle said.
Gardner, Mira and Modawell
were being held at the San Mateo
County jail and were scheduled to
appear in court Wednesday.
At about 1 a.m. Tuesday, a high
tide moved in and provided enough
water for crews to dislodge the
yacht from the a sandbar where it
had gotten stuck. The boat had a
damaged rudder and keel, and was
taken to a repair yard in Richmond.
Taliban attack trends no
longer counted in Afghanistan
military command in Afghanistan
will no longer count and publish the
number of Taliban attacks, a statisti-
cal measure that it once touted as a
gauge of U.S. and allied success but
now dismisses as flawed.
The move comes one week after
the coalition, known as the
International Security Assistance
Force, acknowledged in response to
inquiries by he Associated Press that
it had incorrectly reported a 7 percent
drop in Taliban attacks in 2012 com-
pared to 2011. In fact, there was no
decline at all, ISAF officials now say.
The mistake, attributed by ISAF
officials to a clerical error, called into
question the validity of repeated
statements by allied officials that the
Taliban was in steep decline.
Anthony Cordesman, a close
observer of the war as an analyst at
the Center for Strategic and
International Studies, said it had
been clear for months that ISAF’s
figures were flawed.

WASHINGTON — Congressional Republicans’ unyield-
ing stand against income tax increases has caught President
Barack Obama and his allies off guard, resulting in the
spending-cuts-only approach to deficit reduction that
Democrats most wanted to avoid.
It also has dimmed hopes for broader efforts this year to
start taming the costly and fast-growing “entitlement” pro-
grams of Medicare and Social Security.
The result is a new round of deficit reduction that tilts
more toward Republicans’ wishes than many people would
have expected after Obama won re-election with a campaign
that called for higher taxes on the rich.
Democrats thought House Republicans would accept
some new revenues last month to minimize military cuts and
to pressure liberals to confront entitlement spending.
Instead, Republicans seem more determined than ever to
block tax increases on high incomes, whatever the political
It’s now the overriding priority for GOP lawmakers —
even if they hold a different view of payroll taxes on wage
earners. With relatively little debate, Republicans and
Democrats this year raised the payroll tax rate, which funds
Social Security, after granting a two-year reduction.
In all, two years of budget debates have yielded laws to
reduce deficits by nearly $4 trillion over 10 years, a point of
pride for Republicans. About $620 billion of that will come
from tax hikes made inevitable by the “fiscal cliff” legisla-
tion, resolved on Jan. 1. The rest will come from spending
cuts and savings on interest.
The ratio disappoints liberals. They recall that Congress’
top Republican suggested $800 billion in new revenue, and
Obama proposed $1.2 trillion or more, in “grand bargain”
talks that started in 2011 but never reached fruition.
“Somehow we ended up with $600 billion,” and with no
provisions to rein in entitlements, says Jim Kessler of the
Democratic think tank Third Way. “It was an enormous
missed opportunity.”
For House Republicans, the no-income-tax-increase stand
is more doctrine than strategy. Whether lucky or strategic,
however, they feel they outfoxed Obama on deficit-reduction
policies this time.
When a new “fiscal cliff” law was about to raise income
tax rates on nearly all U.S earners in January, GOP leaders
accepted Obama’s offer to limit the increase to incomes
above $450,000. It was a concession by the president, who
had campaigned for a somewhat broader tax hike.

WASHINGTON — A massive House
Republican measure to keep the govern-
ment operating would ease some of the
pain of automatic spending cuts slam-
ming the Defense Department, the
nation’s senior military leaders told
Congress on Tuesday.
Members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
painted a dire picture of construction
projects on hold, limits on aircraft carri-
ers patrolling the waters and even a
delay in the expansion of Arlington
National Cemetery due to the $43 billion
in across-the-board cuts that kicked in
Problematic for the Pentagon has been
the combination of the automatic cuts
and the government still operating at last
year’s spending levels. The GOP meas-
ure unveiled on Monday would give the
Defense and Veterans Affairs depart-
ments sought-after flexibility in spend-
ing that other agencies lack.
The military leaders embraced that
prospect, a political boost for the GOP
measure just days before the House
“It mitigates at least one-third of our
problem,” said Army Gen. Raymond
Odierno, who earlier told the panel that
the budget cuts and last year’s spending
level had left the service with an $18 bil-
lion shortfall in operation and mainte-
nance plus $6 billion in cuts in other pro-
Adm. Jonathan Greenert, the chief
of Naval Operations, said the bill
would be “almost night and day,” with
a shortfall of $8.6 billion in operations
reduced by more than half.
“We can get back to the covenant that
we have with the combatant command-
ers to get almost all of that back,”
Greenert told a House Appropriations
panel. “We get two carrier overhauls. We
get a carrier new construction. ... We get
all the military construction.
Marine Corps Gen. James Amos said
he was heartened by the legislation.
The GOP measure would fund day-to-
day federal operations through
September — and avert a potential gov-
ernment shutdown later this month.
The measure would leave in place
automatic cuts of 5 percent to domestic
agencies and 7.8 percent to the Pentagon
ordered Friday by President Barack
Obama after months of battling with
Republicans over the budget.
The GOP funding measure is set to
advance through the House on Thursday
in hopes of preventing a government
shutdown when a six-month spending
bill passed last September runs out
March 27.
Top Senate Republican Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky said that bipar-
tisan talks were under way on changes
that the Senate would make to the House
measure. He said that the House GOP
leadership doesn’t expect the Senate to
simply approve the House bill without

VATICAN CITY — The two American car-
dinals sat on the stage, microphones in hand,
fielding questions from the world’s news
media on everything from the delayed arrival
of some of their colleagues to their own
wardrobe choices if elected pope.
Most experts doubt the upcoming conclave
will select an American pope, but the U.S.
cardinals are already exerting a surprising
amount of control over the message — simply
by talking. Their lively daily briefings con-
trast sharply with the sober summaries from
the Vatican spokesman and almost nothing
from anyone else.
More than 100 journalists and two dozen
television crews from the U.S., Britain,
France, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Germany and
Italy showed up Tuesday, packing an auditori-
um for what has become the daily “American
Show” at the North American College, the
U.S. seminary just up the hill from the
Cardinals Daniel Di Nardo of Galveston-
Houston and Sean O’Malley of Boston held
court, gamely trying to answer questions
about when the conclave will begin, why five
voting-age cardinals still hadn’t shown up and
whether they’d all be home in time for Holy
Week — all without violating their oath of
secrecy about the closed-door deliberations.
“I don’t think I can get into anything in par-
ticular about what happened in any of the con-
gregations today,” Di Nardo began.
He then delivered a message that several
American cardinals have repeated in recent
days, responding to questions about whether
the problems in the administration of the Holy
See were weighing on the deliberations about
who might next be pope.
“Obviously we want to know and learn as
much as we can relative to governance in the
church,” Di Nardo said. “The Curia (Vatican
bureaucracy) is part of that issue. Certainly
we want to discuss and learn what we can, and
I think that will go on as long as cardinals feel
we need the information.”
It’s a message that has made headlines, sim-
ply because it’s one of the few coming out.

willing to speak, have filled the media void,”

UNITED NATIONS — A U.S.-China draft
resolution aimed at reining in North Korea’s
nuclear and ballistic missile program would
impose some of the strongest sanctions ever
ordered by the United Nations, in a move cer-
tain to infuriate the regime and inflame tensions
on the Korean Peninsula.
The proposed resolution put forward by the
United States and China — North Korea’s clos-
est ally — followed Pyongyang’s third nuclear
test on Feb. 12. It reflected the U.N. Security
Council’s growing anger over the country’s
defiance of three previous rounds of sanctions
aimed at halting all nuclear and missile tests.
Pyongyang threatened to cancel the 1953
cease-fire that ended the Korean War in
response to the looming fourth round of sanc-
tions. North Korea insists its nuclear program is
a response to American hostility that dates back
to the Korean War, which ended with an
armistice, not a peace treaty, leaving the Korean
Peninsula still technically in a state of war.
“North Korea will be subject to some of the
toughest sanctions imposed by the United
Nations,” Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to
the U.N. said. “The breadth and scope of these
sanctions is exceptional and demonstrates the
strength of the international community’s com-
mitment to denuclearization and the demand
that North Korea comply with its international
Rice and China’s U.N. Ambassador Li
Baodong, who negotiated the text behind closed
doors over the last three weeks, predicted
speedy approval of the resolution.
“The vote will be Thursday — that’s the tar-
get,” Li said. Rice said the council hoped for
“unanimous adoption.”
The draft resolution would make it signifi-
cantly harder for North Korea to move around
the funds it needs to carry out its illicit pro-
It would also strengthen existing sanctions
that bar North Korea from testing or using
nuclear or ballistic missile technology and from
importing or exporting material for these pro-
grams. It would strengthen the inspection of
suspect cargo bound to and from the country.

Problems with

I just wanted to comment on
Ms.Durand’s article of March 2 con-
cerning the reduced sentence of the
embezzling bookkeeper, (“Sentence
drilled down for embezzling dental
Am I the only one who sees a pattern
here? Evidently, previous probations
and requirements to repay embezzled
funds have done little to discourage
Ms. Delafuente from repeating her bad
behavior, even taking additional funds
while on probation.
This “mandatory supervision” is just
another example of how weak our jus-
tice system has gotten, a system which
seemingly encourages “scofflaws” to
continually misbehave.
While I realize that Ms. Durand and
the Daily Journal only reported the out-
come, I am disgusted by it. The public
would be better served if we simply
didn’t have to read about another crimi-
nal gaming the system.

In the theater business, “Eating The

a trip-and-fall — or, in other words —

of the star.
Such was the case on Sunday’s Oscar

other than the White House, as once
again Obama’s administration muscled
in on someone else’s performance.

what less stunning paragraph to read,

Letters to the editor
cott Laurence, superintendent of
the San Mateo Union High
School District, has a tough task
ahead of him. He is asking for six
months to find a location for a new
Peninsula High School and for district
offices. Not only is the real estate mar-
ket tight right now, but the amount of
land needed for a high school close to
where its students live makes finding
the perfect spot challenging. In addi-
tion, there will be likely pushback from
neighbors of whatever location he finds
that may be suitable.
Pushback because of traffic is under-
standable. However, there will also
likely be pushback because Peninsula
High School is an alternative school,
which educates students who are not
the right fit for traditional high schools
for many different reasons. There will
be concern about increases in crime and
other impacts, however, it is important
to note that the area around the current
location at the former Crestmoor High
School site in San Bruno has not expe-
rienced significant issues with the
school and its students. The San Bruno
police chief even said as much in a let-
ter last year.
What is known, and has been known
for a long time, is that Crestmoor is an
aging facility far away from the homes
of many of its students. It provides a
valuable community service in that it
educates those who may otherwise fall
through the cracks or who have had
problems with their traditional high
school. And continuing to provide that
education in dilapidated facilities is a
disservice to those students and their
teachers and administrators. As this dis-
cussion and community planning
process proceeds, it is important to
keep in mind the following facts:
Crestmoor is not an adequate facility;
Crestmoor is far away from many of its
students’ homes and many spend up to
two hours a day on a bus and/or train;
Crestmoor students have no history of
creating problems in the neighborhood
where they are educated; and
Crestmoor students deserve a facility
on the same level as other district stu-
dents. Any other consideration is unfair
and unjust to its student population.
Laurence’s quest for land will begin
after the San Mateo Union High School
District’s Board of Trustees gives him
the green light and the item is on the
agenda Thursday. There are many mov-
ing parts to this process and that
includes the possibility that the Adult
School may have its funding shift to the
community college district because of
changes to the state’s education funding
formulas. With that in mind, it would
be a shame to move the adult school
classes elsewhere, considering they are
currently in a central location next to
the San Mateo High School campus.
But that portion of the discussion is in
the future and more will be known in
six months. In the meantime, Laurence
will see if there is a suitable spot for
Peninsula’s relocation between Millbrae
Avenue and State Route 92 and El
Camino Real and Highway 101. If there
is sufficient land to also include a dis-
trict office, great; but that is not the
central goal of this pursuit. The district
office needs much less land and could
be placed practically anywhere, includ-
ing at its current location.
There are some concerns about plac-
ing Peninsula students so close to San
Mateo High, considering that a signifi-
cant number were relocated from there
and traffic is already heavy in the area.
Those concerns are known and should
not be taken lightly. However, the goal
for now is to see if there is another
location elsewhere that could provide a
central and new facility for a large
number of students who currently travel
too far to be educated in inadequate
facilities. And it is also important to
keep in mind that any new location will
not likely have the issues that people
may fear.
Finding a spot for Peninsula High School
eople who eat according to the rules of a tradi-
tional food culture are generally healthier than
those of us eating a modern western diet of
processed foods.” — Michael Pollan, “Food Rules.”
Last week, you may have noticed the article in this news-
paper about the Mediterranean diet. It even included a food
pyramid. It is reported that
researchers in Spain, after a
five-year study, came to the
conclusion that sticking to
the Mediterranean diet was
advantageous for a group of
55 to 80 year olds who were
at high risk for heart disease
and stroke because of health
problems like diabetes, high
cholesterol, high blood pres-
sure and being overweight.
There were fewer deaths
among this group than among
the others involved in the
research who were apparently
eating much as usual.
The Mediterranean diet emphasizes fresh fruit and veg-
etables, fish, beans and legumes, white meat, olive oil and
nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds. It eliminates all
kinds of sugar and fat-laden sweets and snacks, red meat,
refined grains and, surprisingly, dairy products. It makes
you wonder if this diet were to be followed most of our
lives how much healthier we would be. Or, is it possible
that what they didn’t eat may have had as much to do with
the better outcome as what they did eat?
This came to mind when I was watching a KFC commer-
cial on television for something that I consider “phood.” It
was an ad that depicted a little boy eating his chicken
“nuggets.” When his dad comes in and sees them, he tells
the boy to run and hide so Dad can hunt for him. So the
boy runs out and Dad chomps on the “nuggets.” You hear
the boy call and ask the dad if he is looking for him and
Dad says he is. A flat-out lie — a blatant example of one
corporate interest’s lack of moral or ethical standards and
also of how men are degraded by being depicted as conniv-
ing airheads. Outrageous! (But that’s another column.)
Of course, it would be great if everyone tried to eat
healthfully. But we are obviously up against an intrepid
food industry that airs commercials like the one above. It’s
fine if the Mediterranean diet can be helpful for those who
have jeopardized their health up to age 55 plus to hopefully
help them possibly put off their demise a bit. But here in
the United States, seems the emphasis is on better health
through chemistry as the food industry enthusiastically
generates products that appeal to those who go for instant
gratification and do not give a whit about their future
health for any kind of sensible approach to eating to really
take hold.
The problem is that even if parents are careful about
what they feed their babies and young children, when the
kids get old enough to go out on their own and purchase
snacks, temptations abound in soda and fast food. Maybe
when they get to their 20s and possibly married (or much
later — like age 55) they realize they would be much better
off if they were to avoid the junk and eat healthier. But
that’s after a long, critical period in a young person’s life
that can create bad eating habits and premature health
problems. Boys and young men are especially likely to go
the fast food route — whatever tastes good — without a
thought as to what such habits can do to their health. Girls
and young women, besides eating much junk food, are
often dieting to lose weight and therefore depriving their
bodies of much-needed nutrients. They have already started
on the way to poor health — risking not only those prob-
lems described above, but also osteoporosis, anemia, repro-
ductive problems, etc.
In this country, most adults are too busy and distracted to
even give much thought to preparing a nutritious dinner for
the family much less to consider the advantages of a
Mediterranean diet. After all, you can’t pick it out of the
freezer and stick it in the microwave. But, alas, that just
might be the next innovation of some entrepreneur of
frozen dinners. Consider Kellogg and General Mills, as
reported in the Feb. 27 Daily Journal, who are coming up
with breakfast drinks that contain “the nutrition of a bowl
of cereal and milk including fiber, protein, vitamins and
whole grains.” So “help” may be on the way — a
Mediterranean diet in a can — a miracle of our food indus-
try’s ingenuity and innovation!
As Kelly D. Brownell wrote in “Food Fight”: “Eating in
America is like swimming in a tsunami. The best of inten-
tions get pulled under by massive forces.”

NEW YORK — The Dow closed at an
all-time high Tuesday, beating the previ-
ous record it set in October 2007, before
the financial crisis and Great Recession.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose
125.95 points to 14,253.77, an increase
of 0.89 percent. The index jumped from
the opening bell, climbed as much as
158 points early and peaked at 14,286.
The Dow surpassed its previous record
close of 14,164.53 from Oct. 9, 2007.
Tuesday’s record represents a remark-
able comeback for the stock market. The
Dow has more than doubled since falling
to a low of 6,547 in March 9, 2009, fol-
lowing the financial crisis and the onset
of the Great Recession. Stocks have
been helped by stimulus from the
Federal Reserve and quarter after quarter
of record corporate profits, even as the
economic recovery has been slow and
unemployment has remained high.
“It’s the perfect confluence of events,”
said Jim Russell, an investment director
at US Bank. “This will grab everybody’s
attention, it will be a front page story
and it tends to draw people toward the
market, not push them away from it.”
The recovery in stocks may even have
been quicker had memories of the finan-
cial system’s near-collapse not been on
investors’ minds, said Robert Pavlik,
chief market strategist at Banyan
“It’s still pretty close to the front of
people’s brains,” he said. “That’s one of
the reasons that people are hesitant to
invest in the stock market.”
That could be changing. More money
has been flowing into stock mutual funds
since the beginning of the year.
Investors who have who stayed out of
the market the past four years may be
deciding to get off the sidelines, Pavlik
The Dow opened higher Tuesday fol-
lowing a surge in markets around the
globe. China’s markets rose after the
government said it would support ambi-
tious growth targets. European markets
jumped following a surprisingly strong
rise in retail sales across the 17 countries
that use the euro. In the U.S., more hope-
ful news about housing kept the momen-
tum going.
Twenty-seven stocks in the 30-mem-
ber Dow advanced, with industrial com-
panies leading the gains. Coca-Cola and
Merck & Co. fell, while aluminum giant
Alcoa was flat.
The Dow’s gains Tuesday were led by
industrial and technology stocks. Cisco
System rose 48 cents, or 2.3 percent, to
$21.22 and United Technologies
climbed $1.89, or 2.2 percent, to $91.02.
More stable, conservative stocks like
utilities and consumer staples logged
smaller gains.
All 10 industry groups in the broader
Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index rose,
led by technology companies.
Billionaire Warren Buffet, who has
long been bullish on stocks, gave a big
endorsement to them on Monday in an
interview with CNBC. He said that he
still thinks stocks are a good buy, while
long-term government bonds are “the
dumbest investment.”
Stocks are still a good deal because
earnings have risen so much, said Darell
Krasnoff, Managing Director at Bel Air
investment Advisors.

third higher than they were in 2007

WASHINGTON — U.S. home prices
jumped in January, a sign the housing
market is gaining momentum as it nears
the spring selling season.
Home prices rose 9.7 percent in
January from a year ago, according to
data released Tuesday by CoreLogic.
That’s up from an 8.3 percent increase in
December and the biggest annual gain
since April 2006.
Prices rose in all states except
Delaware and Illinois. And prices
increased in 92 of the 100 largest metro
areas, up from 87 in December.
Home prices also rose 0.7 percent in
January from December. That’s a solid
increase given that sales usually slow
over the winter months.
Rising demand combined with fewer
available homes is pushing up prices.
Sales of previously owned homes ticked
up in January after rising to their highest
level in five years in 2012, according to
the National Association of Realtors. At
the same time, inventories of homes for
sale fell to a 13-year low.
The states with the biggest price gains
were Arizona, where prices rose 20.1
percent, followed by Nevada, with 17.4
percent, and Idaho, with 14.9 percent.
California and Hawaii rose 14.1 percent
and 14 percent, respectively.
The cities with the biggest gains were
Phoenix, Los Angeles, Riverside, Calif.,
New York, and Atlanta.
Nationwide, home values were still
down more than 26 percent from their
peak in April 2006 through January,
CoreLogic said. But in some states prices
have recovered a lot of lost ground. In 15
states, home prices are within 10 percent
of their peak values, CoreLogic said.
Home prices rose by most in nearly seven years
Martha Stewart denies any
wrongdoing in Penney deal
By Anne D’Innocenzio
NEW YORK — Home decor and food guru Martha Stewart
testified in court on Tuesday that she did nothing wrong when
she signed an agreement to open shops within most of J.C.
Penney’s stores across the country.
Stewart testified in New York State
Supreme Court in a trial over whether the
company she founded breached its contract
to sell cookware, bedding and other items
exclusively at Macy’s when she inked the
deal with Penney.
Stewart’s appearance, which followed a
lineup of other top brass including the
CEOs of both Macy’s Inc. and J.C. Penney
Co., attracted a lot of attention from the
media. So much so that the judge opened up the jury box to
make room for the expanded audience, and spectators had to
wait behind a roped line to enter the courtroom.
During four hours of testimony, Stewart, who founded Martha
Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., denied Macy’s allegations that
she did anything unethical and said she was only looking to
expand her brand.
Stewart said it’s Macy’s that didn’t uphold its end of the
agreement to try to maximize the potential of her business. She
said her brand had grown to about $300 million at Macy’s, but
the business was now “static” at the department store chain. She
said she had hoped the business would exceed $400 million.
Record number of natural
gas vehicles sold last year
By Dee-Ann Durbin
DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. said Tuesday it sold a record
11,600 natural gas vehicles last year, more than four times the
number it sold two years ago.
It’s the latest sign that natural gas is making inroads as a
transportation fuel, particularly for truck fleets, buses and
taxis. The consumer market is tougher to crack, but sales are
gaining there as well.
Natural gas is cheap and plentiful in the U.S. after a spike in
production that began in the middle of last decade. At the same
time, the price of gasoline and diesel fuel has jumped more
than 30 percent.
That makes natural gas — which also emits fewer green-
house gases — an increasingly attractive option for truck com-
panies and municipalities.
But while natural gas may be a good choice for snow plows
and trash trucks, which go relatively short distances and can
refuel at city-owned pumps, it’s a tougher call for ordinary
consumers. Natural gas cars cost more and there are few pub-
lic places to refuel them.

Bats fuel early comeback for Burlingame
By Terry Bernal
Despite trailing early, Burlingame (4-0)
banged out 15 hits en route to 10-6 win at
Archbishop Riordan (4-3). The Panthers have
won four straight to begin the season, marking
their best start since 2010.
Burlingame received plenty of firepower
from its left-handed bats. Senior third base-
man Phil Caulfield was 3 for 5 including a
two-run home run in the fifth, while senior left
fielder Jian Lee was 2 for 3 with three RBIs.
“The contact was very good — loud contact
going line-to-line,” Burlingame manager
Shawn Scott said. “The hitters were going
opposite field with balls away, were pulling
balls that were in. That’s what we work on,
and today they really took it to effect.”
After falling behind 3-1 in the second
inning, Burlingame turned to right-handed
reliever Kevin Maltz to settle things down on
the mound. It was Maltz’s varsity debut, and
the junior did not disappoint, working 2 1/3 of
shutout ball to earn the win.
The Panthers stormed back in the top of the
third, plating three runs in the inning. With
runners at the corners and one out, designated
hitter Keone Keahi executed a textbook hit-
and-run by scorching an RBI single through
the vacated second-base position to score
Jonathan Engelmann, closing Riordan’s lead
to 3-2. Lee followed with a nine-pitch at bat
that ended with an RBI single back through
the middle, scoring Andrew Brunicardi to tie
it. Sophomore second baseman Andrew
Kennedy then doubled to left field to plate
Keahi with the go-ahead run.

Everyone is looking up at the College of
San Mateo softball team.
And with the way the Bulldogs are playing
ball, they’re disappearing in the distance.
The College of San Mateo’s women’s soft-
ball team has moved up to No. 1 spot among
the state’s 85 teams in the current poll of the
California Community College Fastpitch
Coaches Association. The Bulldogs (25-1) are
also a unanimous selection as the top team in
Northern California.
CSM was No. 2 in the previous state poll
but traded positions with Orange County-
based Cypress (12-3), followed by Riverside
(11-1), College of the Sequoias (16-2) and Mt.
San Antonio (11-3). San Mateo gave No. 4
Sequoias its first loss, defeated No. 8 Fresno
and shutout defending state champion College
of the Siskiyous twice.
CSM sophomore pitcher Michele Pilster
(Capuchino High) leads the state in wins (19-
1) and is the only pitcher with more than 100
strikeouts (115).

OAKLAND —There’s no place like home
for the Golden State Warriors to finish off
what they started.
Despite the recent road struggles, the
Warriors are in prime position to make the
playoffs for only the second time in 19 years.
Golden State (34-27) has the sixth-best record
in the Western Conference entering
Wednesday’s matchup against the Sacramento
Kings and plays 15 of its final 21 games at
Oracle Arena, where an ever-loyal fan base
has always made things
tough on the visitors.
With Andrew Bogut
battling back and ankle
problems and the defense
diminishing of late, the
Warriors are still some-
what of an unknown head-
ing into the home stretch.
As coach Mark Jackson
said: “Just because
Dorothy clicks her heels
and winds up at home doesn’t mean that
everything’s going to be all right.”
“It feels good that we put ourselves in posi-
tion to get to this point,” Jackson said after

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Nick Swisher sup-
plies enough energy and enthusiasm to fill
several clubhouses. These days he’s getting an
extra boost with all the new faces in
Swisher hit one of three Cleveland home
runs, Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched three score-
less innings and the Indians beat the San
Francisco Giants 4-3 Tuesday.
“There’s a lot of buzz going on around this
team,” Swisher said. “This camp has been
great and so much fun. It will be interesting to
see how the season works itself out.”
Swisher signed a four-year deal worth $56
million with the Indians as a free agent last
“One of the great things about this team is
the mix of younger guys and veterans,”
Swisher said. “We have, arguably, the fastest
American League team and I have the utmost
faith in everybody. It’s a good atmosphere and
a good vibe.”
Brandon Crawford hit a two-run homer for
the Giants, who lost their second straight.
Brandon Belt also homered.
Swisher hit his second home run of the
spring and is now batting .500.
“Right now we have to find our identity,”
Swisher said. “There are a lot of new guys
here and we’re all trying to get to know each
other. There aren’t many rules except to be
fundamentally sound and to keep grinding.
We’ll figure out a lineup.”
Matsuzaka allowed five hits and struck out
two. He said, through an interpreter, it was the
best he’s felt all spring.
“Sometimes he allows baserunners but he
doesn’t back off,” Indians’ manager Terry
Francona said. “He knows what he wants to do
and he knows how to get out of it. It’s his third
start and we’ll see where he goes from here.”
Madison Bumgarner gave up a run on three
hits in his two innings for the Giants. He
walked one and struck out three.
“My command wasn’t as erratic as it has
been,” Bumgarner said. “I was just up and
pitching from behind too much. You’re trying
to be at your best but you know that’s not
going to happen.”
After a long season and anticipating a long
spring, Bumgarner said he backed off throw-
ing bullpens during the offseason as a way to
take it easy.
“I just want to get my arm in shape,” he said.
“My command will be there.”
Roberto Perez hit a home run in the top of
the ninth to give Cleveland a 4-3 lead. Juan
Diaz also homered for the Indians.
Giants second baseman Kensuke Tanaka got
a hit off Matsuzaka, and has six hits in his last
14 at bats after going hitless in his first 10.
“I’m sure it was nice for them to face him
each,” Giants’ manager Bruce Bochy said.
“His play has picked up. He’s playing some
good baseball.”
Cole Gillespie and Francisco Peguero each
had two hits for San Francisco.

SURPRISE, Ariz. — Bruce Chen and Luke
Hochevar are competing for the final spot in
the Royals’ rotation. The loser might not be
with the organization for too long.
A multitude of scouts watched the pair each
throw three sharp innings in an 8-2 victory
over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday remain
The Royals are listening to trade offers for
Chen allowed one run on two hits and
walked none. Hochevar pitched three score-
less innings, but yielded three hits and walked
one. He finished strong, striking out the final
three batters.
“Even though we are fighting for a fifth spot
in spring training, I think it is an all-year bat-
tle for the fifth spot,” Chen said. “You can win
it, but then you can lose it in a matter of two
months. In reality, whoever wins it, wins it,
but it is going like to be an audition every time
that person goes out.”
Chen, a 35-year-old left-hander, has led the
club in victories the past three seasons.
“I feel like I can help the team the most by
being in the starting rotation,” Chen said. “But
if I’m not in the starting rotation, that means
there are five guys better than me. If there are
five guys better than me, then I better do
something. I’m getting paid a lot of money to
be in the bullpen, so I better do something
Chen will make $4.5 million this year, while
Hochevar will earn $4.56 million.
“I am working towards where I want to be,
make sure my arm is strong enough to go deep
in game,” Chen said. “I want to make sure I’m
using my fastball on both sides of the plate
and keep the ball down. So far it’s been going
well, but it’s not a matter of one time or two
times, but it’s a matter being able to do it con-
sistently and being confident that you can do it
for seven, eight innings. That’s the main goal.”
While manager Ned Yost has said whoever
does not win the fifth rotation spot will go to
the bullpen, a trade looms as a strong possibil-
ity if all the starters remain healthy in March
with the projected payroll at a franchise-
record $79 million.
“I kind of got in the groove as the game
went on and started getting the ball down a lot
better,” Hochevar said. “I felt a lot better with
my fastball execution. I’m ready to step it up
to my next set of pitch count.”
Catcher Brett Hayes homered to leadoff the
second and Brandon Wood hit a two-run shot
in the eighth as the 10-0-1 Royals remain the
only undefeated club.
“Name the No. 5 starter? I’m glad that’s not
my job to do that,” Hayes said.
Bartolo Colon did not fare so well for
Oakland, allowing five runs on seven hits and
throwing 48 pitches in two innings. The 39-
year-old right-hander has yielded 12 hits and
eight runs, six earned, in four innings in losing
his first two starts.
“He’s getting his work in, but he obviously
would like to do better than that,” said bench
coach and acting manager Chip Hale. “There
was some pretty hard contact. He probably
missed a little bit too much over the plate.”
He felt good after he was done. His veloci-

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The U.S. team
played the Chicago White Sox to a draw on
The afternoon probably felt like a loss.
In its first of two exhibition games before
the World Baseball Classic, manager Joe
Torre’s team fell into a four-run hole through
five innings, and needed three RBIs by
Giancarlo Stanton and a run-scoring triple by
David Wright to forge a 4-4 tie in a game
called after nine innings.
But the game itself proved to be almost sec-
ondary to what happened before it, when
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira strained
his right forearm and had to pull out of the
“He had gone into the cage to hit off the tee.
I think he took about three or four, just light
swings as he was starting to get loose,” Torre
said afterward. “It was just a freak thing.”
X-rays were negative, and Teixeira was
headed back to New York City, where the
Yankees said he will be evaluated Wednesday
by team Dr. Christopher Ahmad and Dr.
Melvin Rosenwasser.
His loss leaves the U.S. team scrambling for
another first baseman, and Torre said he was-
n’t sure whether a replacement will be on
hand for an exhibition game Wednesday
against Colorado.
The U.S. opens the Pool D play Friday night
against Mexico.
“We’re just taking names,” Torre said. “But
again, Tex was a switch hitter, which was ideal
for us, and left-handed wise, we have a couple
switch hitters and (Joe) Mauer. Otherwise,
we’re pretty lopsided right-handed. So we’re
going to have to see what’s the best bet for
Paul Konerko may have made a strong case
for consideration, going 3 for 3 and driving in
a run for the White Sox. Gordon Beckham
also went 3 for 3 with an RBI.

its second straight game after a stretch in
which it went 2-6-4.
Gomez’s goal was his first of the season and
just his 10th in his last 133 NHL games, while
Burish scored his first goal in 45 games.
Henrik Sedin and Jannik Hansen scored for
Vancouver, which dropped to 3-5-2 in its past
10 games after starting the season 8-2-2.

Division II
No. 9 Rocklin at No. 8 El Camino
After a 0-2 run in CCS, the Colts’ season
continues — and by the looks of DII (with
Serra and Newark Memorial in the Open), El
Camino has the talent to make some serious
But first they’ll have to get by Rocklin,
who’s enjoying a turnaround season. After
going 4-24 last season, the Flash are 22-7 this
The game will be played at El Camino but
Rocklin is 7-4 away from home this season.
The Colts must contend with the likes of
Devin Moss, Rocklin’s main offensive threat.
And then, there are players like Jake Faulkner
and Taylor Cherry who provide toughness on
the interior.
Division III
No. 10 Campolindo at
No. 7 Burlingame
Talking to Burligame head coach Pete
Harames on Monday, he said returing to the
court after winning the program’s first ever
boys’ CCS championship was a bit surreal —
adding that he wanted his team to enjoy the
moment instead of going all-out on their
preparation for the CIF playoffs.
But the fun is over as Campolindo and its 67
points per game comes to visit.
“Practice started slow,” said Burlingame
point guard Mikel Floro-Cruz. “But as it went
along, we kind of stayed in the rhythm we had
in the playoffs where we celebrated one win
but now it’s game time again. We know what
we have left to do.”
Division IV
No. 11 St. Mary’s, Berkeley at
No. 6 Menlo
There is a bit of familiarity already between
St. Mary’s and the new CCS Division IV
champion Knights.
The two met in non-league play this year
with St. Mary’s coming out on top 54-43. The
Knights only scored 15 points in the second
half in that loss.
Things will definitely have to be different
against the Rams in this tournament and
Menlo head coach Delandro LeDay said prior
to the DIV championship game that his team
is completely different than the one that took
the court early in the year.
“Offensively, we’re spreading the ball
around,” LeDay said. “Defensively, we’re
started to understand that we can really play
defense. We can really get after teams. That’s
really been the key for us — starting to pick
up the nuances on offense. I always tell our
guys, ‘I need ball players. Not robots.’”
Menlo is riding a 16-game winning streak.
The Knights must contend with the likes of
Jeremy Dennis, who tops the team in scoring
(16.2 points per) and rebounding (7.8). Also,
be on the look out for Aren Ulmer.
No. 10 Half Moon Bay at
No. 7 Liberty Ranch
The Cougars lost to Menlo School in the
CCS Division IV title game, but still earned
the right to play in the CIF tournament — a
major sign of respect to what head coach Rich
Forslund has done with the program.
Free throw shooting and rebouding will be
key for the Cougars in a game against Liberty
Ranch that promises to be close — and it’s
those two things that keep rearing their ugly
heads against Half Moon Bay.
Liberty Ranch is 22-9 this year with a 9-3
record at home. They’re led by the great over-
all play of Michael Meserole, who leads the
team in points per game with 25.4.
In the paint, look for DeAndre Stallings (6.0
rebounds per game) and Matt Hagen (6.0 rpg).
Division V
No. 11 Alma Heights at
No. 11 Central Catholic
The feel-good story of the season continues.
Alma Heights, the small school in Pacifica,
earned an invitation to the state’s biggest
dance after a strong showing in the CCS tour-
ney. That’s the good news.
The bad news is a matchup with Central
Catholic — one of the most balanced teams in
Central Catholic was 7-0 at home this year
and boast four players who’ve averaged dou-
ble figure scoring in 2012-13 (and another not
too far out at 9.8). They’re led by John Fenton
and his 17.9 points per game plus 17.6
rebounds per game.
Division III
No. 11 Modesto Christian at
No. 6 Burlingame
The last time Burlingame won a Central
Coast Section title (1988), they went on to
win the state championship as well.
An omen, perhaps?
Panther fans sure hope so.
But before they start making plans for
Sacramento, Sarah Gogarty, Dana Michaels,
Lauren Rally and the rest of the Panthers must
contend with Modesto Christian’s defense
which has allowed just 38 points per game
this season.
Offensively, Modesto featured four players
who average double-digit scoring led by Lexi
Hubbs and her 14.4.
Burlingame’s great post players will be test-
ed, too. Hoku Faiaipou scores at 10.5 per tip
and brings down 8 rebounds per game. Her
teammate Jasmine Hampton is even better at
10 and 10.
Division IV
No. 12 Moreau Catholic at
No. 5 Menlo
Some experts see Menlo, the reigning CCS
Division IV champion, as a true sleeper team
in the bracket. And it’ll be a tough trek with
the likes of Salesian and Piedmont in DIV as
two of the top seeds.
But Menlo is playing extremely well and
efficient as of late thanks in large part to Drew
Edelman — whose postseason numbers are
even better than her 20 points per and 13
rebounds per in the regular season.
Menlo saw Moreau earlier this year and lost
57-42 — scoring only 11 points in the middle
But the big difference between then and
now? Well, it’s Edelman. The center was still
out with an injury.
No. 9 Sacred Heart Prep at
No. 8 Anderson
The Gators fell short of their CCS goal
when they fell to the rival Knights in over-
whelming fashion.
Wednesday’s game at Anderson is very
winnable for SHP. But the question is, can
they bounce back offensively from the shell-
shock of that CCS final that saw them score
just nine points in the first half?
Against the Cubs, the Gators must handle
Katie Nunnelley, who’s put up Edelman-
esque numbers at 20.8 points per game and
14.6 rebounds. There is also Fallon Greenhaw
(10.2 and 4.6) plus Natalie Campos (8.8
points per) to contend with.
Continued from page 11
come from behind,” Scott said. “But, I know
that we’re a team that can swing the bat a lit-
tle bit with the best of ball clubs. It doesn’t
scare me to be down a run or two. We run the
bases very well when the ball is put in play.
So, I think we’re always OK coming from
Burlingame added insurance runs with two
in the fourth and two more in the fifth.
Englemann started a two-out rally with a sin-
gle to center, Brunicardi then walked, and
Keahi was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Lee
then delivered again, driving home two with a
single to center.
In the fifth, senior catcher Blake Mori set
the table with a one-out double. Then with
two outs, Caulfield squared up a fastball from
Riordan starter Jorge Navarro and launched it
over the right-field wall for a two-run homer.
Caulfield said he knew it was gone on contact.
“I knew he was going to throw me a fast-
ball,” Caulfield said. “He’d been pounding
fastball early in the count, so I was looking for
one low and in, and that’s what I got. So, I just
tried to hit the ball hard, and it went out of the
Lee and Caulfield are currently tied for the
team lead with six hits apiece, but neither hit-
ter had an RBI entering play yesterday. They
each had three on the day, and along with sen-
ior Michael Franco are now tied for second on
the team. Brunicardi is tops on the squad with
five RBIs on the young season.
Game of sacrifices
Lee said he was excited to get a chance to
deliver with runners on base.
“I always like hitting more with runners on
base,” Lee said. “It gives me more motivation
to have a good at bat and get a knock.”
A non-starter as a junior in 2012, Lee
worked diligently over the summer to
strengthen and improve his swing. Having
gotten his drivers license just before summer
break, he was able to commute to San Jose to
attend a private baseball academy — with a
little help from his father.
Lee borrowed his father’s Subaru to make
the regular trip to San Jose, with his father
opting to take Caltrain to work in San
Francisco. It was admittedly a grind for the
entire Lee family, thought it seems to be pay-
ing off.
“I just grinded (to crack the starting nine),”
Lee said. “I worked really hard in the offsea-
son and so far it’s paid off. So, I’m really
happy, and I hope to continue to play a lot.”
Pitching and (especially) defense
With three pitchers making their 2013
debuts for Burlingame, the defense really
stepped up to flash some leather. Brunicardi
made two nice running catches down the line
in right in the middle innings – both with run-
ners on base while the score was still close.
And after coming on in relief, Kennedy
made a gutsy play off the back of the mound.
With a runner on third and Burlingame lead-
ing 10-6 in the sixth, Kennedy backpedalled
on a high chopper and opted to fire home to
deny the would-be run.
Burlingame travels to Newark Memorial on
Thursday before hosting Serra on Friday at 7
p.m. in an always anticipated annual non-con-
ference matchup.

SAN JOSE — There’s a lot more new at
San Jose State during this year’s spring foot-
ball session than just the head coach.
Ron Caragher also has to deal with some
lofty expectations for the Spartans in his first
year since replacing Mike MacIntyre as head
coach in San Jose.
With the Spartans bringing back star quar-
terback David Fales from a team that won a
school-record tying 11 games, earned the first
national ranking since 1975 and got the sixth
bowl win in school history, San Jose State will
no longer be an overlooked team as it moves
into the Mountain West Conference.
The players who endured a one-win season
in 2010 relish the new scrutiny.
“It’s exciting because we have a target on
our back for the first time in a while, probably
the 80s,” junior defensive end Travis Raciti
said Tuesday. “We have a target on our back.
That helps excite us and kind of motivate us.
We know that people are shooting for us. We
have to do that little bit more because we’re
not sneaking up on anybody anymore. People
are coming for us and we’re coming for
That’s a big change from past years at San
Jose State when the Spartans deservedly got
little attention. After going 1-12 in
MacIntyre’s first season in 2010 against a
schedule that featured a heavy dose of ranked
teams, the Spartans went 5-7 in MacIntyre’s
second season and then matched the school
record in wins last reached in 1940 last sea-
The Spartans (11-2) capped the season by
beating Bowling Green 29-20 in the Military
Bowl to finish 21st in the nation. MacIntyre
turned that success into a head coaching job in
the Pac-12 when Colorado hired him and Bay
Area native Caragher returned home from San
Diego to build on MacIntyre’s success.
Caragher has brought some changes to the
program, putting Fales under center more
often instead of in the pistol and switching
defensive alignments from the 4-3 to the 3-4.
Fales, who operated under center in junior
college and high school, said the transition has
been relatively easy so far.
“It’s basically just kind of getting on the
same page, not thinking so much of the termi-
nology,” he said. “It’s different but it’s the
same concepts basically. It’s just a matter of
going up there and playing instead of thinking
of what we just said in the huddle.”
Caragher is well-versed in succeeding a
successful coach having followed Jim
Harbaugh at the University of San Diego
when Harbaugh left for Stanford following
the 2006 season.
He posted a 44-22 record in six seasons,
winning three conference championships, to
earn the promotion to San Jose State.
“The thing I’ve learned is you have to be
yourself,” Caragher said. “You have to do
things you feel most comfortable with, that
you’ve had the most success with. There’s a
lot of ways to be successful. The key is to get
everyone on the same page. You never really
can try to be someone else. I didn’t ever try to
be Jim Harbaugh. I will not try to be Coach
Mac. I’ll be myself and go with it. That’s the
best way. I think the players appreciate that.
They can see through you if you’re not being
who you are.”
His transition at San Diego was eased by the
fact that he had a future NFL quarterback on
his roster in Josh Johnson. He has a similar
situation at San Jose State with Fales, who led
the nation in completion percentage last year
at 72.5.
Fales set every significant single-season
Spartans passing record a year ago, throwing
for 4,193 yards and 33 touchdowns with only
nine interceptions.
“To have a guy back with veteran experi-
ence at that position, a leader position, is real-
ly nice,” Caragher said. “If you have guys
competing for the starting job that’s a whole
another big question mark and there’s a lot of
attention there. But having a guy back who is
a proven successor is good. It’s nice as a
Expectations high for San Jose State’s new regime

San Mateo has the state’s best won-loss
record and is the only 20-win team.
CSM has won 15 games in a row — the
longest modern day streak for the Bulldogs.
That streak continued Tuesday with another
mercy-rule win — this team against De Anza
Pilster gave up one hit while the Bulldogs
pounded out 10 in a 9-0 win.
Jamie Navarro collected three hits and two
RBIs and so did Kaylin Stewart. Talisa Fiame
had a pair of knocks. Navarro leads the con-
ference in RBIs with 31.
Last week, San Mateo won five games,
defeating Coast North foe Mission, 14-1, then
taking non-league twin bills from Yuba (22-0
and 4-0), and from Feather River (10-1 and
Stewart (Hillsdale) slugged home runs in
both Feather River games and had four RBIs.
Fiame (Terra Nova) also had a home run —
plus three RBIs and three hits — and scored
three runs.
After a 2-7 start to the season, the College
of San Mateo baseball team is a winner of six
straight and is off to a 2-0 start in conference
They’re fresh off an 11-1 win over West
Down in the Pacific division, Cañada has
lost four of its last five, but did beat Gavilan
College for their first conference win.
And Skyline College is struggling at 4-11.
But the Trojans are winners of two straight.

Tuesday’s practice. “And now it’s
about sealing the deal, finishing up
the season the right way. Our guys
have earned that right, and it’s great
to be in this situation, but it’s not
just going to happen on its own.”
Playoff promises have so often
been unfilled by the Bay Area’s only
NBA team that the word itself is
usually mocked around these parts
by the time March rolls around.
Not this year.
Not with this team.
Earlier this season, Jackson had a
board installed at Golden State’s
headquarters that shows the stand-
ings before players walk out to the
practice court. One day over the hol-
idays, the Warriors official in charge
of updating the list was off, and
players pitched a fit when the board
shorted them a win.
For a franchise that has missed
the playoffs all but once since 1994,
it’s hard not to pay attention to the
latest standings: The Warriors are
five games behind Denver (39-22)
for the fifth spot, one game ahead of
Houston (33-28) and 1 1/2 games
ahead of Utah (32-28). The Los
Angeles Lakers (30-30) are the first
team out — but only 3 1/2 games
behind the Warriors — and perhaps
the biggest challenge to unseat
“I think you look at it more as the
season goes on, just because it’s
coming down to that time where
you’re trying to see who you may
match up with in the playoffs,” for-
ward Harrison Barnes said. “You
can see how our cushion was so big
and how it got so little because we
let games go. I think it’s just moti-
vation for us.”
Golden State’s 22-10 start this
season was its best in 20 years. At
one point, it seemed this team could
even challenge for homecourt
advantage in the first round.
Now it’s more about survival.
The Warriors had lost four
straight and 10 of 13 games until
Monday night’s 125-118 home win
against the Toronto Raptors, and
defense — once the defining char-
acteristic this season — has been
the overriding problem during the
stretch. Golden State has allowed an
average of 109.7 points in each of
the past 14 games.
“I just thought collectively we got
away from having fun, smiling,
laughing, high-fiving one another,”
guard Jarrett Jack said. “I feel like
we’ve done enough talking. We’ve
had enough team meetings and what
we need to do to correct things.
Let’s lead by our action.”
The franchise is embarking on
something it rarely has in the last
two decades: games in March and
April that matter.
The Warriors haven’t made the
playoffs since the “We Believe”
team in 2006-07, when they upset
the defending Western Conference
champion Dallas Mavericks in the
first round as an eight seed. Ending
that drought might be as simple as
taking care of home court.
Eight of the final 15 home games
come against teams at or below a
.500 record.

By Sara Moulton
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I have packed
four Irish ingredients into one tasty little
appetizer — oysters, cabbage, Guinness stout
and Colman’s Mustard.
What’s that? The skeptics among you are
claiming that fully half of those ingredients —
the oysters and Colman’s — are ringers? Not
so. And here’s why.
In search of inspiration for this recipe, I
dove into a shelf’s worth of Irish cookbooks.
Much to my surprise, oysters kept bobbing to
the surface. So I concluded that the Irish love
oysters. Unfortunately, they tend to love them
most when they’re swimming in cream, a fate
to which I would never consign them.
Here in America we like our oysters fried.
But I no more intended to fry these guys than
to bathe them in cream. Not only is deep-fry-
ing unhealthy, it’s also messy and far too
much trouble.
As I continued to pore over my Irish cook-
books, I noticed that Guinness stout appeared
as an ingredient nearly as often as oysters. and
suddenly inspiration hit. When it comes to
frying, my favorite batter is made with beer.
Why not batter my oysters with Guinness
(and a bit of flour, of course), then saute them,
rather than fry them?
Beer brings two wonderful qualities to a
batter — bubbles (which make the batter
light) and alcohol (which amplifies flavor
even if you don’t taste the alcohol itself).
As for the sauteing, a couple years ago I
learned how well it worked as a frying substi-
tute when I used the technique on beer-bat-
tered shrimp. Turns out it works just as well
on oysters. As a result, this recipe requires
only a single tablespoon of oil, instead of the
4 cups usually called for in deep-fat frying.
And the oysters turn out with a nice (albeit not
so stiff) crust. That said, a non-stick pan is a
must for this recipe.
Now I just needed to sauce them up a bit,
which brings us to Colman’s Mustard. I know
it’s made in England, not Ireland, but that’s
close enough for me. Please believe it;
Colman’s has been crossing the border to the
Emerald Isle for ages and it’s widely available
in our own supermarkets.
What I love about Colman’s is that it’s seri-
ously hot, very reminiscent in its tear-induc-
ing, nasal-cleansing potency of the equally
scorching Chinese mustard many of us love. I
added a generous dollop of the stuff to a
combo of mayo and Greek yogurt, along with
some chopped pickles.
The only thing missing now was a nod to
one of Ireland’s favorite vegetables after the
potato, namely cabbage. So I topped this
appetizer with a tidy little mix of shredded
cabbage and carrots, tossed simply with cider
vinegar, sugar and salt. The acid in this top-
ping provides a tangy counterbalance to the
breaded oyster with its creamy sauce. The
whole concoction came together very nicely.
A true ode to Ireland.
Start to finish: 1 hour (30 minutes active)
Servings: 4
1/2 to 3/4 cup Guinness Stout
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for
dusting the oysters
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped corni-
chons or dill pickle
1/2 teaspoon prepared Colman Mustard (or
the mustard of your choice)
3/4 cup coarsely shredded carrots
3/4 cup finely shredded cabbage (preferably
savoy or Napa)
1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
Hefty pinch of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
12 oysters, shucked, reserving the bottom
(curvier) shell to serve
In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup
of the Guinness, 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 tea-
spoon salt. The batter should have the consis-
tency of a thick pancake batter. If it is thicker
than that, add additional beer. Let the batter
rest for 30 minutes.
Oysters that spare you from deep-frying
Beer brings two wonderful qualities to a batter — bubbles (which make the batter light) and
alcohol (which amplifies flavor even if you don’t taste the alcohol itself).

Coffee, Irish whiskey and cream.
Taken separately they’re a tasty
trio. But combine them just the right
way and in just the right proportions
and they get even better, transform-
ing into a drink that can perk up the
grayest day.
We’re talking Irish coffee, of
course, a drink that’s especially
popular around St. Patrick’s Day,
but good any time you want to add
some zing to your caffeine.
The secret, says Larry Silva, gen-
eral manager of the Buena Vista
Cafe in San Francisco — which
serves up 2,000 Irish coffees a day
— is how you put the drink togeth-
At the Buena Vista — the original
source of the drink in the U.S. —
Irish coffee starts with a stemmed,
6-ounce glass that’s been preheated
with hot water. And both of those
elements are critical. A bigger or
smaller glass would throw off the
coffee-booze balance. A cold glass
results in a tepid cocktail. There was
a bit of a hitch a few years back
when Libbey Glass stopped making
the type the Buena Vista uses. Silva
had to scramble to find another
source but, happily, Libbey has
since reinstated the product.
For a touch of sweetness, the
Buena Vista recipe adds two cubes
of sugar, though other recipes call
for brown sugar. The cream, mean-
while, should be fresh and just
slightly whipped — nothing from
an aerosol can.
As for the whiskey, the Buena
Vista is currently using Tullamore
Dew. In general, what you are seek-
ing is a smooth whiskey that won’t
fight with the other flavors, says
Silva. This isn’t the time to pull out
that peaty Scotch. But don’t be
afraid to use something good.
“Using a premium spirit elevates
any cocktail,” says John
Concannon, a California vintner
who has teamed with Ireland’s
Cooley Distillery to develop
Concannon Irish Whiskey, which
also makes a good Irish coffee.
The whiskey, made and aged in
Ireland, is matured in bourbon bar-
rels, then finished off with some
time in wine barrels that have been
used to age Concannon Vineyard’s
flagship petite sirah wine. “Because
of the unique barrel finishing in the
distilling process, Concannon has a
complexity and character all its
own, making for a one-of-a-kind
Irish coffee experience,”
Concannon said via email.
Though it seems likely that peo-
ple have been introducing a drop or
two of whiskey into coffee for a
while, the drink as a cocktail was
popularized in Ireland at the Foynes
port, precursor to Shannon Airport,
in the 1940s when chef Joe
Sheridan decided to pep up some
coffee with Irish whiskey to cheer
chilly travelers. The drink was
much appreciated and one of the
passengers is said to have asked,
“Was that Brazilian coffee?”
Sheridan jokingly answered, “No,
that was Irish Coffee,” and a tradi-
tion was born.
San Francisco newspaperman
Stanton Delaplane tried the coffee
while flying from Shannon Airport
in 1952 and on his return got togeth-
er with Jack Koeppler, then-owner
of the Buena Vista, to recreate the
drink. The trickiest part was getting
the cream to float on top, something
that was solved by whipping the
cream just a bit, then pouring it
carefully over the back of a spoon
into the cup.

Though it seems likely that people have been introducing a drop or two of whiskey into coffee for a while, the
drink as a cocktail was popularized in Ireland at the Foynes port, precursor to Shannon Airport, in the 1940s.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together
the mayonnaise, yogurt, cornichons or pickle
and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.
In another small bowl, toss together the car-
rots, cabbage, vinegar, sugar and a hefty pinch
of salt.
In a large nonstick skillet over medium, heat
the oil. Dip the oysters in the additional flour
to coat them on all sides. Transfer the coated
oyster to a strainer to shake gently to remove
excess flour.
Add the coated oysters to the beer batter.
Lift them from the batter, letting the excess
batter drip off, then add them to the skillet.
Cook until they are golden, about 2 minutes
per side, then transfer them to paper towels to
To serve, put the oysters in the reserved
shells, then top each with a bit of the mustard
sauce and some of the carrot mixture. Serve
either on a platter as hors d’oeuvres, or divide
between 4 serving plates. Serve immediately.

resonance for Concannon since his great-
grandfather and winery founder, James
Concannon, was born on March 17 in the Aran
islands off the coast of Ireland. The winery,
based in the Livermore Valley region east of
San Francisco, will be celebrating this year
with traditional, live Irish music and a toast
(with wine) to their founder.
And they’ll be busy at the Buena Vista, too.
Last year, thirsty revelers sucked down 3,640
Irish coffees.
Take that, green beer.
Looking to brew a little Irish cheer yourself
this St. Patrick’s Day? Try this classic recipe,
or the chocolate-laced variation.
Depending on which version of the “origi-
nal” Irish coffee you subscribe to, it is sweet-
ened with either 2 sugar cubes or 1 teaspoon
brown sugar. For a rich and chocolaty take on
Irish coffee, stir 2 tablespoons of milk choco-
late bits into the coffee at the same time as the
sugar. Once the chocolate bits have melted,
proceed with the recipe.
Start to finish: 5 minutes
Servings: 1
Boiling water
Hot coffee
2 sugar cubes or 1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream, lightly
beaten (but still pourable)
Fill a large coffee cup with boiling water to
preheat it. Let it stand for about 1 minute, then
empty the glass.
Fill the glass three-quarters full with hot
coffee. Add the sugar, then stir until dissolved.
Stir in the whiskey.
Top the coffee-whiskey blend with the light-
ly whipped cream. To do this, hold an over-
turned spoon over the coffee, then slowly pour
the cream over it. The goal is for the cream to
float on top of the coffee; do not mix it in. Part
of the Irish coffee experience is drinking the
hot coffee through a layer of cool cream.

HAVANA — Tobacco: It’s what’s for dinner.
A team of Croatian chefs whipped up a pun-
gent meal Thursday, infusing the flavor of the
tobacco leaf synonymous with Cuba into baked
stone bass filets, bread and butter, a rich demi-
glace sauce, even ice cream.
The result was a tangy heat that one taster
likened to ancho chili powder, and a powerful
finish with all the nicotine kick of a chubby
Montecristo cigar.
“Wow, buzz city!” said Gary Heathcott, a
public relations worker from Little Rock,
Arkansas, who also writes for Smoke maga-
zine. “The first buzz I ever received from biting
into fish.”
Grgur Baksic, owner and executive chef of
the Gastronomadi dinner club in Zagreb, led
the demonstration before a standing-room-only
crowd of aficionados at a Havana convention
center as part of Cuba’s 15th annual Cigar
It’s a six-day bash that brings together hun-
dreds of cigar sophisticates from around the
world, and culminates Saturday night with a
gala and auction of humidors worth hundreds
of thousands of dollars.
A dozen cameras following their every move,
Baksic and two other chefs carefully wrapped
the bass filets in tobacco and banana leaves,
with a sprinkling of garlic and honey to draw
out the smoky flavor.
As the mild white fish baked for about a half
hour, they demonstrated how stirring tobacco
sauces into butter can create a sharp spread for
bread and crackers, and used a torch to dry out
liquid-infused tobacco salt that can be
employed in just about any dish.
“It’s like how you can put chili on a sweet or
a sour, you can put honey on a fish and on a
fruit and on a meat,” Baksic said. “Something
that is good is always good. You cannot make a
Baksic said Thursday’s demonstration was
the result of two years of trial and error. He said
they unsuccessfully tried American, European
and African tobacco varieties before settling on
Cuban tobacco, which he called the finest in the
world. The chefs warned tasters not to eat the
leaves themselves, which would be hard on the
Why tobacco?
“Why rosemary? Why chili? It’s about vari-
ety,” Baksic said. “We are a little bit crazy. Our
company are gastro-explorers, so we are always
looking for what ... is not normal for other peo-
Some at the demonstration found the ice
cream, a creation by Italian chef Bruno Luciani,
overwhelming. What started out as a smooth,
milky sweetness soon set throats on fire.
“I think they (nonsmokers) might find it a bit
strong, and also they might actually get high,”
said James Suckling, an American food, wine
and cigar critic living in Hong Kong. “So prob-
ably in small doses they might find it amusing.”
Suckling, like other cigar aficionados sitting
on a 16-member tasting panel, gave the meal
good reviews, however.
“At first I didn’t really get much flavor and I
thought it wasn’t up to much,” he said. “But
then I started tasting the fish ... and it has a very
spicy, almost intense black-pepper taste. And
then you get the nicotine and it’s like you’ve
been chewing tobacco.”
Heathcott put it more succinctly: “It grabs
you by the throat.”

left to serve in the county jail after
deducting the credit earned while in cus-
tody at the county jail and a state mental
hospital where he was briefly committed
as incompetent. Questions over just how
much time Elarms earned led to Parsons
releasing Elarms in early February on his
own recognizance pending sentencing.
Parsons believed that Elarms had enough
or near enough credit earned. However,
just last week, Parsons called Elarms
back into custody after saying he was
incorrectly informed about the amount of
credit by defense attorney Jonathan
On Tuesday, Parsons clarified he did
not mean to suggest McDougall steered
him wrong intentionally but that all attor-
neys and the Probation Department came
up with different miscalculations.
“It was basically a mistake all the way
around but I wasn’t implying anybody
was misrepresenting anything,” Parsons
Prosecutors hope during Elarms’
remaining incarceration a state appellate
court will overturn the murder case dis-
missal so they can refile charges in the
fatal shooting of David Lewis in the park-
ing garage of the Hillsdale Shopping
Center. Elarms was in custody awaiting
trial in that case when jail staff reported
finding three shanks in his cell during
February 2011 searches. Prosecutors filed
those charges in November after the mur-
der case was dismissed largely as a way
to keep him in custody while the murder
ruling appeal is pending. Elarms pleaded
no contest in January to possessing the
weapons — a spork, a toothbrush and two
pencils strapped together and sharpened
to a point.
Elarms greased the floor of his cell with
eggs and lotion to “gain an advantage”
over the correctional officers he planned
to attack, said prosecutor Ivan
In the original case, Elarms is
accused of following Lewis from San
Mateo Medical Center, where he was
an outreach worker, to the San Mateo
shopping center’s parking garage and
shooting him once in the torso. The
men reportedly knew each other from
childhood but Elarms believed Lewis
had become his enemy.
Lewis uttered the name “Greg” before
dying but police made no arrests until
contacted by Elarms six months after the
shooting. During the murder trial in
November, Judge Stephen Hall ruled
Elarms’ police confession inadmissible
because San Mateo police did not
Mirandize him or respond to his numer-
ous requests for a lawyer.
Elarms’ prosecution was on hold for
the better part of a year while he was hos-
pitalized in a state mental facility before
being found fit for trial.
In asking for his client to receive time
served, McDougall said Elarms was trou-
ble-free for almost 20 years before his
arrest in Lewis’ death and had no discipli-
nary problems at the Maguire
Correctional Center prior to being com-
mitted. With more than three years of
credit, “Mr. Elarms has served a sufficient
sentence,” McDougall said.
But Nightengale disagreed, asking
Parsons to consider the homicide case as
proof of Elarms’ danger to the communi-
ty. Nightengale said Elarms also mini-
mized his culpability in the weapons
case, stating in the probation report that it
is only “petty crime.”

Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, will clarify,
if approved, that funds from Proposition
1A, the high-speed bond measure
approved by voters in 2008, will be used
solely to implement a rail system along
the San Francisco to San Jose segment
that primarily consists of a two-track
blended system.
Senate Bill 557 also closes potential
loopholes to make sure that funds cannot
be transferred from the Peninsula seg-
ment to other segments of the high-speed
project. It also clarifies that the $1.1 bil-
lion appropriated by the state Legislature
last year will include $600 million for
Caltrain electrification.
Combined with an additional appropri-
ation of $105 million for Caltrain’s
advanced signaling system, the state has
committed a total of $705 million for the
Caltrain electrification project.
While Caltrain electrification is expect-
ed to be completed by 2019, high-speed
rail trains are not expected to access the
corridor until 2029 at the earliest.
The new agreement the board considers
Thursday, however, takes out a condition
that Caltrain remains in “regular opera-
tion” to just “operational” while the
blended system is developed, meaning its
current schedule may be reduced as con-
struction takes place.
The blended system will greatly reduce
impacts to properties along the corridor
but about nine miles of passing tracks will
have to be constructed somewhere to
allow high-speed trains unimpeded
access between San Francisco and San
The new agreement, based on the
authority’s 2012 Business Plan, will take
effect immediately upon approval by both
The HSR board meets in Redwood
City today and will vote on the new mem-
orandum of understanding before the JPB
votes on it Thursday.
The JPB will take the vote as it also
hears that Caltrain ridership has trended
upward for 30 straight months.
Caltrain’s average weekday ridership in
January exceeded last year’s totals for the
same month by 9 percent although it fell
short of October’s numbers, the best
month ever for the commuter rail line.
The agency’s average weekday rider-
ship in January was 45,111, up nearly
4,000 passengers a day compared to
January 2012, according to a staff report
the JPB will hear Thursday.
Farebox revenue is also up by 13.6 per-
cent for January from $4.6 million in
2012 to about $5.2 million in 2013,
according to the staff report.

“I am thrilled to see Bay Meadows is

inventory for new homeowners in our
community,” Mayor David Lim wrote
the Daily Journal in an email yesterday.
Phase 1 of the Bay Meadows project
was officially completed in 2011 with the
construction of the new Kaiser Medical

a very dependable friend who will come to your aid

By Fabiola Sanchez and Frank Bajak
CARACAS, Venezuela — Some in
anguish, some in fear, Venezuelans raced for
home and stocked up on food and water
Tuesday after the government announced the
death of President Hugo Chavez, the larger-
than-life firebrand socialist who led the
nation for 14 years.
Vice President Nicolas Maduro’s voice
broke and tears ran down his face as he
appeared on national television to announce
that Chavez died at 4:25 p.m. local time (3:55
p.m. EST, 1755 GMT) “after battling hard
against an illness over nearly two years.”
He did not say what exactly killed Chavez,
although the government had announced the
previous night that a severe new respiratory
infection had severely weakened him.
A few hours later, Foreign Minister Elias
Jaua affirmed one of Chavez’s final wishes:
Maduro would be interim president and then
be the ruling party’s candidate to carry on
Chavez’s populist “revolution” in elections to
be called within 30 days.
It was a day fraught
with mixed signals, some
foreboding and some vio-
lent. Just a few hours
before announcing
Chavez’s death, Maduro
made a virulent speech
against enemies he
claimed were trying to

He called on Venezuelans to be “dignified

Let there be no hate. In our hearts there
should only be one sentiment: Love. Love,

the impact of inflation. Adjusted for that, the
Dow would have to reach 15,502 to match its
old record, according to JPMorgan Chase.
The Standard and Poor’s 500, a broader
index, closed at 1,539.79, 25.36 points from
its record.
The last time the Dow hit a record, George
W. Bush still had another year as president,
Apple had just sold its first iPhone, and
Lehman Brothers was still in business.
But unemployment was also 4.7 percent
versus 7.9 percent today, a reminder that stock
gains have proved no elixir for the economy.
Still, the Dow high is another sign that the
nation is slowly healing after the worst reces-
sion since the 1930s. It comes as car sales are
at a five-year high, home prices are rising, and
U.S. companies continue to report big profits.
The stock gains have helped retirement and
brokerage accounts held by many Americans
recover. That, in turn, has helped push U.S.
household wealth nearly back to its peak
before the recession, though many in the mid-
dle class are still deep in the hole. Most mid-
dle-class wealth is tied up in home values,
which are still a third below their peak.
Good economic news Tuesday helped lift
stocks. Retail sales in the 17 European coun-
tries that use the euro rose faster than expect-
ed, China’s government said it would support
ambitious growth targets, and a report showed
U.S. service companies grew last month at
their fastest pace in a year.
“It feels great,” says Marty Leclerc, chief
investment officer at Barrack Yard Advisors,
an investment firm. In early 2009, when
stocks were plummeting, “it looked like
Armageddon was nigh. It’s a lot more fun to
be in a rising market.”
In the depths of the recession four years
ago, few investors would have predicted such
a fast recovery. Some feared another Great
Depression. Banks were collapsing, lending
was frozen, world trade was plunging, and
stocks were in free fall.
“People thought we were going to relive the
1930s,” says Robert Buckland, chief global
stock strategist at Citigroup. He calls the stock
gains since “pretty remarkable.”
From its peak in October 2007 to its bottom
in March 2009, the Dow fell 54 percent. That
was far less than the nearly 90 percent drop in
the Great Depression but scary nonetheless.
There had been 11 previous bear markets
since World War II and none had reached 50
One man who stayed calm and didn’t sell
was Jay Sachs, 70, a retired computer consult-
ant. In fact, as others scrambled to exit stocks
in late 2008, he plunged in more — scooping
up drug maker Ely Lilly and Co., health-care
products giant Johnson & Johnson and food
company General Mills.
“You have to be greedy when others are
fearful,” he says, quoting a famous line from
billionaire Warren Buffett, who also bought in
the panic. Sachs adds, “People are still fearful
and that’s a good sign. There’s room for
He says his portfolio has doubled in value in
four years.
As stock rebounds go, this has been an
unusually quiet and uncelebrated one.
Typically, bull markets are accompanied by
rising trading volume, a surge in young com-
panies going public and Internet chatter over
hot stocks.
The past four years, none of that has hap-
Adding to the chastened mood is lingering
fear among many investors that stock gains
can disappear in a flash. Burned by two stock-
market crashes in less than a decade,
Americans have sold more U.S. stocks than
they’ve bought the past four years, nearly
unprecedented in a bull market since World
War II.
In this run-up, nearly all the buying has
come from companies repurchasing their own
stock in an effort to boost its value.
Companies in the S&P 500 have bought $1.5
trillion since the Great Recession began in
December 2007.
Dow records are dismissed by some
investors as unimportant because the index
comprises just 30 stocks. Many professional
investors prefer to follow the S&P 500, which,
as the name implies, tracks 500 companies.
But the Dow has closely followed the ups and
downs of its broader rival over the years, and
is a good proxy for how big companies are
The S&P 500 is up 128 percent from its

The Dow record is a victory of sorts for
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
Under his aegis, the Fed launched an unprece-
dented campaign to lift stocks by making their
chief rival for investor money — bonds —
less attractive.
Under a program called “quantitative eas-
ing,” the Fed has bought trillions of dollars
of bonds to drive their yields down. The
idea was that the puny yields would so frus-
trate investors, they’d have no choice but to
shift into stocks. That, in turn, would push
up stocks and make people feel wealthier
and more willing to spend, helping the
Just as Bernanke had hoped, American
household wealth, or assets minus liabilities,
has risen, though the gains haven’t been
shared equally.
In the recession, household wealth fell
$18.9 trillion, or 28 percent, as the prices of
assets like stocks and homes tumbled. But
after bottoming in the first quarter of 2009 at
$48.5 trillion, wealth rose $16 trillion through
the third quarter of last year and was within
striking distance of its peak of $67.4 trillion,
according to the latest data from the Federal
Reserve. Gains since then may have pushed
wealth to a new high.
