Francis: Pope of many firsts
Catholic Church finds new leader in Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina
By Nicole Wineld
VATICAN CITY From the end of the
earth, the Catholic Church found a surprising
new leader Wednesday, a pioneer pope from
Argentina who took the name Francis, a pastor
rather than a manager to resurrect a church and
faith in crisis. He is the rst pontiff from the
New World and the rst non-European since
the Middle Ages.
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the arch-
bishop of Buenos Aires who has spent nearly
his entire career in Argentina, was a fast and
tting choice for the most unpredictable papal
succession start to
nish in at least six
He is the rst pope
from the Americas, the
rst Jesuit and the rst
named Francis, after St.
Francis of Assisi, the
humble friar who dedi-
cated his life to helping
the poor. The last non-
European pope was
Syrias Gregory III from
You know that the
work of the conclave is to give a bishop to
Rome, the new pontiff said as he waved shyly
to the tens of thousands who braved a cold rain
in St. Peters Square. It seems as if my broth-
er cardinals went to nd him from the end of
the earth, but here we are. Thank you for the
The 76-year-old Bergoglio, said to have n-
ished second when Pope Benedict XVI was
elected in 2005, was chosen on just the fth
ballot to replace the rst pontiff to resign in
600 years. In the past century, only Benedict,
John Paul I in 1978 and Pius XII in 1939 were

in the church leadership. On Wednesday, driv-
ers honked their horns in the streets of Buenos
Aires and television announcers screamed
with elation at the news.

waited 20 centuries. It was worth the wait,

Before Jorge Bergoglio offered his rst
blessing as pope to a huge crowd of the faith-
ful at St. Peters Square in Vatican City yes-
terday, he rst asked for them, and the mil-
lions watching on television, to pray for him.
For local clergy in the Catholic Church, it
was a sign of humility that goes along with his
new title Pope Francis, named after St.
Francis of Assisi, the 13th-century Italian
preacher who lived a life of poverty.
The 76-year-old archbishop from Buenos
Aires, who spent nearly his entire career in
Argentina, is the rst pope from the Americas.
Its a sign the church is universal, that it
shares faith with people all over the world,
said the Rev. David Schunk, with St. Gregory
Church in San Mateo. Its wonderful to have
the rst pope from the New World.
Schunk was impressed Pope Francis asked
for a prayer rst for himself before he made
his rst ofcial prayers as the churchs new

Pope Francis: Simple
image, complex past
Newly elected Pope Francis, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina appears on the balcony of St. Peters Basilica after being elected
by the conclave of cardinals, at the Vatican. White smoke rose from the Sistine Chapel chimney and the bells of St. Peters Basilica rang out
on Wednesday, signaling that Roman Catholic cardinals had elected a pope to succeed Benedict XVI.
The Belmont City Council moved toward
developing a a small slice of the 35 acres of
open space in the San Juan Hills at its Tuesday
night meeting.
Presented with three options, it decided to
try and sell 8 acres of land called the Bishop
Road property to a developer for the construc-
tion of three homes on about 2 acres while
preserving the other 6 acres as open space.
The city won the property in an auction in
2009 with a $1.5 million loan to itself and
intends to recoup the investment by develop-
ing some of the land while preserving most of
it as open space.
The council previously directed staff to have
the project developed in two phases with con-
sideration of selling a portion of property

TALLINN, Estonia - An Estonian

late, partly blaming a World War II aerial
bombing that damaged the library for the
late return.

Library says that last week the man in his

which was checked out on March 7, 1944,
while Estonia was occupied by Nazi
Germany along with an apology and
an offer to pay a late fee.
Turkson said Tuesday that the library
waived any penalty for the late return of
the tome, which still contained the origi-
nal emblem and serial number, allowing
librarians to identify it.
It was not immediately clear why the
man waited so long to return the book, a

A local synchronized ice skating team
recently took sixth place on the national stage
with a team that included an 18-year-old
Carlmont High School student.
The San Francisco Tremors is a team made
up of girls from high schools all over the Bay
Area. Recently, the team earned a bid to the
U.S. Synchronized Skating Championship
where they took sixth the teams best
showing yet. Among those on the ice trying
was Olivia Marlinski.
The 18-year-old from San Carlos started
skating at Belmont Iceland when she was in
kindergarten. She quickly took to the sport.
Her interest grew to include family skate
nights on Thursdays and private lessons.
Then, at 10, Marlinski joined the Tremors.
This year, she was one of the team captains.
Im really proud of everything that our
team has accomplished this season. It makes
me really happy that I could be a part of all of
our success this season, she said after the
recent competition. Specically, being able
to improve our score and get the highest score
in our history.
Being a Tremor requires a commitment of
weekly practices as well as ofce training,
practicing individuals and also taking separate
A team gets a technical and presentation
score for each element. The judges then score
each element with a grade of execution,
explained Marlinski. This year, the Tremors
had a program that was three minutes and 30
seconds long.
The most difcult thing to master in this
program was the timing because each move-
ment corresponds to a count, said Marlinski.
A note on the teams website reads, all the
hard work and great coaching led to an amaz-
ing skate that had the arena cheering and the
judges buzzing after the event.
The tremors are always looking for new
additions, said Marlinski.

A one-time influx of $12.2 million went to
South San Francisco schools after the dis-
banding of local redevelopment agencies but
how to use the money has yet to be decided.
On Thursday, the South San Francisco
Unified School District Board of Trustees
will discuss the funds and possible uses.
Superintendent Alejandro Hogan estimates
that the district will end up keeping about
half of the money. Just over $5.5 million will
go back to the state. Districts funded through
property taxes face a fair share cut, or a need
to give back to the state what their fair share
of the cuts to schools would equal. Now the
board will discuss how to use the money.
Since it is one-time money, Hogan has
previously said it should be used for one-
time reasons. Principals were asked to solic-
it input from staff to make proposals.
Different ideas will be discussed Thursday.
The money is part of a larger $30.8 million
in one-time funds once held by redevelop-
ment agencies disbanded by the state that is
going to San Mateo County schools.
Since the state decided to close down
redevelopment agencies, there has been a
long process of making sure obligations are
met but also distributing funds sitting in the
bank. The money many cities had was in a
fund for low- to moderate-income housing.
In San Mateo County, a total of $30.8 mil-
lion was recently distributed to local
schools, said county Deputy Controller
Shirley Tourel. The money will help some
districts with one-time purchases. For oth-
ers, the money will simply pass through and
end up going back to the state. The largest
allocation went to the South San Francisco
Unified School District.
The board meets 7 p.m. Thursday, March
14 at the District Office board room, 398 B
St., South San Francisco.

BART Bikes on Board second
pilot program starts Monday
BART officials are reminding the public
that a one-week pilot program will kick off
on Monday to test the feasibility of allowing
bikes on trains during peak commute hours.
Next week, Monday through Friday, bikes
will be allowed on all trains all day at all sta-
tions, BART spokeswoman Luna Salaver
said. Cyclists will be asked not to use the
first three cars of any train.
Under BARTs current rules, bikes are not
allowed on most trains during commute
hours. During non-peak hours, bikes can be
brought on trains but not in the first car.
Bicyclists are barred from entering crowd-
ed train cars, including during the pilot pro-
Next weeks trial period follows an earlier
one-month pilot program in August, in
which bikes were allowed on all trains but
only on Fridays.
That first pilot program brought divided
reviews, Salaver said.
About 37 percent of those who responded
to a survey afterward gave positive feed-
back, while another 37 percent disliked hav-
ing more bikes on BART, she said.
After the second pilot program, BART
will ask everyone bike riders and other
passengers alike to take part in another
survey on BARTs website.
This time, we get the whole week experi-
ence, Salaver said. We need feedback
from all parties.
Based on the results of the second pilot, a
proposal for permanent changes to BARTs
bike policy may go before the BART board.
Peak hours are from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and
from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

whether the military erred when it dropped rape
charges and discharged a soldier who later shot
and killed two police detectives in California.
During the rst Senate hearing on sexual
assaults in the military in nearly a decade, Sen.
Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat, cited
gunman Jeremy Goulet as an example of what
can go wrong when military cases are dropped.
What is it going to take to convince the mili-
tary that sexual assault is a violent and vicious
crime and that those who perpetuate it, theyre
capable of other violent
crimes, including murder,
Boxer said at the hearing in
Washington, D.C.
Goulet, who died in a
shootout with police on Feb.
26 in Santa Cruz was a hel-
icopter pilot in Hawaii in
2006 when the Army court-
martialed him on charges of
raping two women. The
charges were later dropped in exchange for an
other than honorable discharge in 2007, of-
cials said.

On Tuesday, the Burlingame Elementary School
District Board of Trustees approved a contract with
teachers in the Burlingame Education Association. The
three-year agreement covers the current school year
through 2014-15, according to a staff report. The tenta-
tive agreement calls for a retroactive 2 percent salary
raise, a 1 percent one-time payment and paid increase in
medical benefits, according to a staff report. It also
includes a new teacher evaluation system created by a
joint group of administrators and teachers. Teachers
approved the contract proposal last week.

Many students now cannot get the
basic courses that they must take in
order to graduate, causing delays in
graduation and fewer seats available for
new students. In 2012-13, 85 percent of
state community colleges reported wait
lists for fall courses with an average of
7,000 students.
At the University of California and
Cal State systems, only 60 percent and
16 percent of students, respectively,
graduate in four years. Access to key
courses was a major factor in the time
lag, Steinbergs ofce said.
No college student should be denied
a college education because they could
not get a seat in the course they needed
to graduate, Steinberg, a Sacramento

The bill would allow online providers
such as Udacity and Coursera to offer as
many as 50 of the most in-demand

She received 44 percent of the vote in

Democrats have half the registered vot-

Coastside Fire Board recall
The Daily Journals take on the
Coastside Fire Protection District board
recall in the March 13 editorial,
Editorial: No on Coastside Fire
Protection District recall, was more
secretarial than editorial. The author
apparently took dictation from the
incumbents and their San Mateo nan-
cial backers, faithfully reciting all their
talking points without regard to truth or
to the overwhelming opposition of the
coastside community.
Fact is, there is zero evidence that
Cal Fire has underperformed in protect-
ing the Coastside Alifano,
Mackintosh and Riddell refuse to docu-
ment a single accusation. Instead, all
evidence is that Cal Fire has performed
superbly, providing full stafng and
welcome professionalism, and the com-
munity is delighted.
The assertion that the coastside can
afford the massive cost increase of a
stand-alone department is insanity. Half
Moon Bays nancial crisis killed off
its local police department last year. Yet
the re board plans to blow at least $7
million of our precious tax dollars over
ve years on a deliberately short-
staffed stand-alone with huge overtime
costs. That the Daily Journal endorses
this idiocy speaks to the power of polit-
ical inuence, not the needs of the
The Daily Journal also doesnt men-
tion that the coastside turned to Cal
Fire after our former stand-alone
department collapsed under the weight
of understafng, scandal and misman-
agement so severe that a civil grand
jury determined community safety was
endangered. The people trying to rein-
carnate the old stand-alone are some of
the same folks who oversaw the previ-
ous disaster and launched the new, mis-
erably failed San Carlos Fire
Were not going back to that discred-
ited model. Three-thousand voters in
this small community signed the recall
petitions to choose Cal Fire. We will do
so again with our ballots.

Coastside recall election
Often the true reasons behind actions
by politicians can be determined by the
very old, but still valid rule, follow the
Why would some politicians want to
do away with a provider of good serv-
ice, replacing it with one that is much
more expensive and will probably pro-
vide poorer service?
Could it be that these politicians have
no control over the hiring and ring of
staff at the existing service provider,
while they will control a number of
very highly paid jobs at their new
stand-alone department. These jobs
come complete with pay and fringe
benets that most workers with only
high school diplomas can only dream
about, not to mention very generous
pensions. The large amounts of pay and
benets and the huge pension obliga-
tion will have to be paid by coastside
There will, of course, likely be a
chief, as well as captains and lieu-
tenants galore in this new organization.
Is it possible that family and friends of
these politicians could end up in some
of these plush new jobs that would be
controlled by the politicians?
According to Fire recall election
under way, in the March 12 edition of
the Daily Journal, the San Mateo
County Civil Grand Jury, a non-parti-
san body that looks out for the welfare
of all county residents, praised Cal
Fires service and stated that the effort
to re-establish a re department to
serve the coast was ill-advised.
The choice seems clear to someone
who has watched Bay Area local poli-
tics for more than 30 years Recall
the politicians who want to do away
with an efcient, well-run department
that is providing good service at a rea-
sonable cost. Or, vote to keep them and
pay much more for a less good service.

The Republican
American, Waterbury, Conn.
ix years after the collapse of the
housing bubble inated by the
political treachery of then-Sen.
Chris Dodd and others, 27.5 percent of
U.S. home mortgages still remain under
water. Thats almost 14 million home-
owners with more mortgage debt than
equity, according to the Zillow
Negative Equity Report.
Where they got in trouble was believ-
ing prices would rise forever, freeing
them to cash out their equity periodical-
ly to buy expensive consumer goods,
pay for lavish vacations, nance grand
home improvements or simply afford
lifestyles their incomes couldnt sup-
port. During the housing boom,
Americans cashed out more than $1
trillion in equity by renancing or
through second mortgages or lines of
credit, all with variable interest rates
below those of traditional xed-rate
instruments. But when the bubble burst,
they were submerged by rapidly falling
prices and rising interest rates. And the
rest, including trillions in lost house-
hold wealth and 5 million-plus foreclo-
sures, is Chris Dodds legacy.
Did Americans learn anything about
reckless borrowing? CNBC reports a
$7.2 billion (19 percent) surge in new
equity lines of credit in the last year.
Thats a far cry from the $28 billion
likewise nanced in 2006, and industry
observers say, based on anecdotes, this
new equity borrowing is funding home
improvements, college tuition and other
worthwhile expenses.
Maybe so, but that doesnt mean the
new loans are risk-free to borrowers or
taxpayers. Its not as if the mortgage
and housing crises have passed.
Notwithstanding the copious grand-
standing by politicians and government
bureaucrats, nothing fundamental has
changed since the bubble burst. And
almost every new mortgage continues
to come with the implied backing of
taxpayers because the Obama adminis-
tration actually has expanded the role
of Fannie and Freddie in housing
nance, even as they are stuck with
more than $5 trillion in essentially
worthless mortgage-backed securities.
So almost every new dollar borrowed
presents a new risk for taxpayers.
New home mortgage risks
within the county
an Mateo County is all about communication at
least in terms of diseases. The county this week
issued its fourth quarter communicable disease
report, complete with 2012 totals to date and comparisons
to the previous year, and it makes for some interesting
reading. The one-page summary doesnt touch STDs so
no knowing from it just whos been sharing a little bit
more than love but it does
give a little insight into
what is floating around the
air, blood, food and bugs.
Theres the usual sus-
pects, gastrointestinal dis-
eases and norovirus, the sta-
ple of nursing home and
restaurant outbreaks. In
fact, the report includes a
whole section devoted to
explaining just why
norovirus is the worldwide
leading cause of acute viral
gastroenteritis and that
scary stuff is not something
youll get from your
favorite television hospital drama. The report also shows
pertussis slashed more than half, proving the vaccination
campaign and commercials with sad-looking mommies
paid off. Can I get a whoop-whoop?
But set aside the upset tummies and nod to preventative
medicine. The reports real payoff is seeing what icky
germs, despite an abundance of hand sanitizer and person-
al cleanliness, continue going viral.
Typhoid Mary might be long in the ground but her
feverish legacy was documented twice in both 2011 and
2012. Speaking of fevers, 2012 ended with one case of
rocky mountain spotted fever which sounds like a long-
lost John Denver song but is much more serious than a
poor guitar tune. Considering the cause and the lack of
cases in 2011, lets call this an uptick.
This is not to be confused with spotted fever rickettsios-
es. Rickets in the First World? Really? That should have
gone the way of scurvy once everybody started getting
enough vitamins C and D. But despite the similar names,
spotted fever rickettsioses and rickets dont actually go
hand in hand. Look, thanks to the report and a quick
Internet search, education is catching!
Legionnaires disease caused a small blip; viral menin-
gitis was more popular but even that paltry number isnt
alarming. Food contamination made its mark in 2012,
with 132 cases of salmonella and seven cases of E. Coli.
These are all facts to chew on.
Despite the dry title its not as if CD Quarterly
Report will ever be confused for a Gone Girl or the lat-
est James Patterson thriller the health roundup gives a
peek into the county that largely flies under the radar. The
spotlight tends to fall on big-ticket items like policy deci-
sions, the organizational overhauls, the sales tax alloca-
tions, the construction of new facilities. Yet often more
telling are the less widely seen documented like
announcements of tainted waterways and restaurants
closed for improper hand washing or an abundance of ver-
The disease report, for one, is smart and reader-friendly
with a single page containing a few stats, year to year
comparisons and no bulky executive summaries and
wonky speech to bog it all down. Of course, the report
doesnt really explain the numbers. The single case of
infant botulism in 2012 could have been a can of dodgy
looking formula although a more likely culprit is contami-
nated honey. And while 2011 had eight cases of Hepatitis
A, 2012 skated by with nary a one. Not sure what gives
on that.
Public health might not sound like the sexiest or most
exciting of government arenas but it is the stuff of
Hollywood action movies, paperback thrillers, prize-win-
ning nonfiction about pandemics and plagues, political
controversy and occasionally a good old-fashioned public
panic attack. Granted, San Mateo County at least as of
late, is not documenting cases of hantavirus and ebola,
cholera and dengue fever, SARS, the Black Plague or any
of the others that make one ready to stock up on biohaz-
ard suits and ready the isolation units. That doesnt mean,
though, that those without a scientific bend should shy
away from checking out its reports. Curiosity should be
the most contagious thing of all.

NEW YORK The Dow Jones
industrial average notched its ninth
gain in a row, giving the index its
longest winning streak in more than 16
The index edged up 5.22 points, or
0.04 percent, to 14,455.28. The Dow has
risen every day this month and is up 10.3
percent this year, having surpassed its
previous all-time high of 14,164.53
March 5.
Demand for stocks has been propelled
this year by optimism that the housing
market is recovering and that companies
have started to hire. Strong company
earnings and ongoing stimulus from the
Federal Reserve are also helping make
stocks more attractive.
The Dows last nine-day winning
streak was logged in May 1996. In
November of the same year, in the early
days of the technology boom, it gained
for 10 straight days.
Stocks overcame an early loss
Wednesday, having edged lower at the
start of the trading day despite an unex-
pectedly strong increase in U.S. con-
sumer spending last month.
Americans spent at the fastest pace in
ve months in February, boosting retail
spending 1.1 percent compared with
January, the Commerce Department
reported Wednesday. Economists had
forecast a rise of just 0.2 percent,
according to data provider FactSet.
The failure of the market to rally
directly after the report suggests that the
bar has now risen for investors as stocks
have rallied.
As the market rises, so do expecta-

The Nasdaq composite rose 2.80 points,

Stocks of retail companies rose after
the sales report. Kohls rose $1.49, or
3.15 percent, to $48.82 and Best Buy
gained 67 cents, or 3.3 percent, to
Brian Gendreau, a strategist at Cetera
Financial Group, says that even if mar-
kets dip in coming weeks, the trend of
rising company earnings is likely to push
stocks higher in the longer term. So far
companies have reported 7.7 percent
earnings growth for the fourth quarter,
the third straight quarter of gains,
according to S&P Capital IQ.
Earnings growth has been quite
strong. Corporations have found a way
to make money, said Gendreau. New
products, new markets, cost savings. I
dont believe that is going to stop any
time soon.
The S&P 500 index has gained 9 per-
cent in 2013 and is within less than a
percentage point of its record close of

NEW YORK Samsung Electronics is
taking to the Big Apple to reveal its next big
challenge to Apple Inc.: a successor to its top-
selling Galaxy S III smartphone.
The Korean company has rented New
Yorks Radio City Music Hall for an event
Thursday evening. The company has hinted
that it will reveal the Galaxy S IV phone.
Judging by the announcement of the S III in
last May, this means the new phone will be
available in stores in a month or two.
Its not known what the new phone will
look like or how it will differ from its prede-
cessor, but theres speculation that Samsung
will once again increase the screen size. Every
successive generation of the Galaxy line has
been bigger than the one before, and the S III
sports a screen that measures 4.8 inches on
the diagonal, substantially larger than the
iPhone 5s 4-inch screen.
In the last two years, Samsung has emerged
as Apples main competitor in the high-end
smartphone market. At the same time, it has
sold enough inexpensive low-end phones to
edge out Nokia Corp. as the worlds largest
maker of phones.
The Galaxy line has Samsungs chief
weapon in the ght, and it has succeeded in
making it a recognizable brand while com-
petitors like Taiwans HTC Corp. and Korean
rival LG have stumbled. Samsung has sold
100 million Galaxy S phones since they rst
came out in 2010. Thats still well below the
268 million iPhones Apple has sold in the
same period, but Samsungs sales rate is
catching up.
Research rm Strategy Analytics said the
Galaxy S3 overtook Apples iPhone 4S as the
worlds best-selling smartphone for the rst
time in the third quarter of last year, as Apple
fans were holding off for the iPhone 5. The
iPhone 5 took back the crown in the fourth
Gartner analyst Michael Gartenberg

Googles top Android exec
unexpectedly steps down
SAN FRANCISCO Andy Rubin has stepped down as
the executive in charge of Googles Android operating sys-
tem for smartphones and tablet comput-
ers, ending a seven-year reign that
reshaped the technology industry.
The unexpected change announced
Wednesday may raise new questions
about Androids direction as Google
duels with Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp.
and a long list of other companies in the
increasingly important mobile computing
Google is replacing Rubin with Sundar
Pichai, an executive in charge of the com-
panys Chrome Web browser and operating system for light-
weight laptop computers. That move may heighten recurring
speculation that the Chrome operating system eventually will
supplant Android. Google executives so far only have said
they want to make sure the two operating systems can oper-
ate cohesively together.
Pichai is a logical choice to succeed Rubin because there is
probably going to be even more natural confluence
between the Android and Chrome systems in the next few
years, said Edward Jones analyst Josh Olson.
Co-founder leaves Fisker electric car co.
DETROIT Fisker Automotive Inc., maker of the
$100,000 Karma sports car, conrmed Wednesday that co-

Mills battles, Cougars prevail
By Terry Bernal
Playing the hero is something Half Moon
Bay catcher Tom Howell has been waiting a
lifetime to do.
His moment in the sun didnt go exactly as
planned. But the end result was good enough
to give Half Moon Bay a 4-3 walk-off win
over Mills yesterday at Half Moon Bay High
In the bottom of the seventh with the bases
loaded, Howell topped a high-bounding ball
to Mills shortstop Sereno Esponilla, who
made a charging grab and red home in an
attempt to get the force at the plate. But Half
Moon Bay junior Brett Berghammer beat the
throw on a bang-bang play to score the win-
ning run.
I was kind of picturing the Edgar Renteria
game-winning single up the middle, Howell
said. It didnt pan out the way I was hoping it
would. But hey, it got the job done. So Im not
disappointed. Ive played like 15 years of
baseball and that was my rst opportunity to
get a game-winning hit. So, Im 1 for 1.

Historic season ends for Menlo
By Julio Lara
The majority of teams the great ones,
even the historic ones arent immune to
high school basketballs cold hard fact: many
times, your team will lose its last game.
But that shouldnt by any means diminish
the season of basketball played by the Menlo
School girls basketball team. The year ended
Tuesday night against the No. 1 seed Salesian-
Richmond in the California Interscholastic
Federations Northern California tournament.
Yet, as the season goes from winter to spring,
if youre a lifelong Knight, like head coach
John Paye, there is still plenty about which to
be happy.
I pointed out to the team that this is the fur-
thest a Menlo basketball team, boys or girls,
has advanced in the NorCal playoffs since
1991, Paye said. So, its quite an accom-
plishment for the girls. We extensively played
four underclassmen, three of which were
freshman, to go along with seven upper class-
men. What theyve been able to do is bring
Menlo basketball back to NorCal basketball
which is truly exciting for the school.
Not only did the Knights shine on the
biggest stage, they did it in dominating fash-
ion. Their two wins heading into the NorCal
nal four were of the blowout variety and
Menlos run to its rst Central Coast Section
title since 1995 had very few speed bumps
along the way. So, going into the game against
No. 1 Salesian, there was no real intimidation.
We played a good game against them
before, so coming into this seminal, we had
been playing against a lot of good teams, we
had been playing teams that we had scouted
and knew were very talented, said Maddie
Price, who scored 15 points in the loss. So,
coming into this game, and having been play-
ing with so much intensity kind of helped us
not be intimidated and just kind of go out
there, have some fun and play as hard as we
could and leave it all on the court. And I think
we did that.
We played them one time before, Paye
said. Theyre aggressive, theyre tough.

SAN FRANCISCO As safety Dashon
Goldson landed his coveted long-term deal
with Tampa Bay on Wednesday, the San
Francisco 49ers were already preparing to
move forward without him.
Free agent defensive back Charles Woodson
had a meeting with the
NFC champion Niners in
the Bay Area on
Wednesday, according to
his agent, Carl Poston.
Also Wednesday, former
Kansas City Chiefs defen-
sive end Glenn Dorsey
signed a two-year contract
after meeting with the
Niners. The deal could
pay Dorsey up to $7 mil-
lion with incentives, a person with knowledge
of the contract told the Associated Press. The
person spoke on condition of anonymity
because terms werent announced.
We are very pleased to add Glenn to our

said. Glenn brings great versatility to our
defensive front, and we look forward to his

Menlos Limcaco an All-American
By Julio Lara
Since her high school days as a point guard in
Sacramento, Jolise Limcaco has always look to
distribute rst.
It makes you feel good that, yes I can score,
but I can also be seless and make a shot easier
for my teammate to hit, the now Menlo College
guard said. Of all the stats, thats the one I take
the most pride in.
So, it shouldnt come as a surprised that when
asked what it felt like to be the Oaks rst All-
American player since 2009, Limcaco rst
praised her teammates.
Our team did really well
this season, she said. I
have to give it up to my
team. I wouldnt have got-
ten this award without
them. We really grew a lot
from last season and I think
its because all the returning
players we nally had a
connection when we played
and it made it easier this
year. We all committed to the team, every prac-
tice, every game. I think our connection and
sense of family on and off the court really helped
and really showed at the end of the year when
we went on our run.
The reigning California Pacic Conference
Player of the Year, Limcaco added another acco-
lade to her resume on Wednesday as she was
named to the NAIA All-American third team.
It felt good, Limcaco said of winning the
honor. I was really excited. I was really sur-
prised. I wasnt expecting to get this kind of
honor but its something I had to work at every
Limcaco was an integral part of Menlos
impressive season, which included a 26-4
record, Cal Pac regular season and conference
championship, a perfect 10-0 conference record
and a trip to the NAIA national championships.
In only her sophomore campaign, Limcaco aver-
aged 16.7 points and 4.9 assists per game while
shooting nearly 50 percent from the eld.
I didnt want to be the Player of the Year,
Limcaco said when asked about her post-season
accolades. I just wanted to go out every game
and play my hardest lead the team, play with
lots of energy, and just guide my team down the
right path.
This is the rst time Limcaco has cracked the
All-American list in her two seasons as a Lady
Oak. She was the 2013 Cal Pac player of the
year as well as a rst team all-conference mem-
ber in her rst two seasons. Limcaco said the
2012-13 season was quite the adventure, but she
knew early on the Lady Oaks had what it took to
make a run at the conference championship.
We were really condent, Limcaco said.
We came in every game really hungry. We
knew that we had a big target on our backs and
everyone wanted a chance to get beat us. But we
came in with the will to win and knew not to take
any game for granted.
And it wasnt just on the offensive end that
Limcaco shined she said her defensive game
improved from her freshman campaign and so
did her leadership quality.
Our coach took a lot of pride [in] our defense
this year, Limcaco said. We worked really
hard on it. I felt like every stop we made, when
we went on a run, it has to start on the defensive
end. I felt like, if I scored, but I let the opposing
player score, then it canceled out. I think thats
more important than scoring and all that fun
Limcaco is the rst Menlo College womens
basketball player to be named to the NAIA All-
American list since Kelci Fushikoshi earned an
honorable mention in 2009. But once again, for
Limcaco, it was all about distributing praise for
her accomplishment.
My team was always there to bring energy to
me even if some days I wasnt really feeling
energetic, she said. We all wanted to work
hard and even in some of those days when I did-
nt have energy, theyd always pick me up. I felt
no empty tank at any point of the season.

LAS VEGAS Jahii Carson has always
loved the spotlight, embracing the hype that
has followed him since his high school days.
Faced with the brightest lights of his young
career, the fabulous freshman rose above
everyone else.
Carson scored ve of his 34 points in over-
time in his rst college postseason game,
helping Arizona State hold off Stanford 89-88
in the opening round of the Pac-12 tourna-
ment on Wednesday. Carsons 34 points were
the most by a freshman in tournament history.
I just try to come up big on big stages,
Carson said. I know my teammates look a lot
for me to create for them and create for
myself, and I try to go out there and make big
Meeting for the second time this season, the
Cardinal and Sun Devils traded 3-pointers,
dunks and small runs in an entertaining open-
er to the four-day tournament at the MGM
Grand Garden Arena.
Arizona State (21-11), the tournaments
ninth seed, went up six with about 2 minutes
left in regulation, but Stanford (18-14) rallied,
tying it at 79 on Aaron Brights four-point
play with 38 seconds left.
Carson, who missed a 3-pointer at the end
of regulation, put Arizona State up three with
a layup in overtime, and Evan Gordon hit 5 of
6 free throws to send the Sun Devils to the
quarternals Thursday against No. 21 UCLA.
Carrick Felix had 19 points and 12
rebounds, Gordon made 9 of 11 free throws to
nish with 16 points, and Jonathan Gilling
added 14 for the Sun Devils.
Carson hit 14 of 22 shots, including 3 of 4
from 3-point range, and had four assists while
just missing the school freshman record of 35
We tried to squeeze the court on Jahii
Carson to shrink the oor so he doesnt see as
much space, and he was still able to squeeze
through gaps and made plays, Stanford coach
Johnny Dawkins said. He was that good.
Bright hit six 3-pointers and had 27 points,
Dwight Powell had 23 points, and Josh
Huestis added 17 for the eighth-seeded
Stanford made 15 3-pointers, but attempted
just one free throw to Arizona States 17
and will have to wait to see if its postseason
will continue or if the season ended in Vegas.
Thats everybodys goal before the season
starts to make the tourney, Bright said.
Whatever tournament that we get into and
whatever opportunity that we have, were
going to try to fulll it.
Both teams likely needed to win this tour-
nament to get into the NCAA tournament.
Arizona State got the season off to a great
start, going 11-2 in nonconference and win-
ning six of its rst eight Pac-12 games to get
in the hunt for the regular-season title.
The Sun Devils faded down the stretch,
though, losing seven of nine, including the
nal four of the regular season to nish 9-9
and tied for fth in the conference.
Stanford had an up-and-down season from
the start, losing some tough games to ranked
opponents early and opening the Pac-12 with
four losses in six games. The Cardinal did n-
ish the regular season strong, knocking off
Utah and California to nish 9-9.
Stanford won the lone meeting against the
Sun Devils 62-59 in Tempe behind Powells
22 points and a 10-for-18 night from the 3-
point arc.

ALAMEDA The Oakland
Raiders began shoring up their
depleted defense on Wednesday by
signing free agent linebacker Kaluka
Maiava to a $6 million, three-year
contract, as well as defensive tackle
Pat Sims and defensive end Jason
A day after losing three of the
teams most productive defenders
from last year when Oakland
released defensive back Michael
Huff and lost free agent linebacker
Philip Wheeler to Miami and defen-
sive lineman Desmond Bryant to
Cleveland, the Raiders started the
rebuilding process.
Were excited to add three veter-
ans through free agency, helping to
create depth and competition on
defense, general manager Reggie
McKenzie said. Well continue to
add free agents as the opportunity
Oakland has only four returning
defensive starters under contract in
safety Tyvon Branch, linebacker
Miles Burris and defensive linemen
Lamarr Houston and Tommy Kelly.
But Kelly could still be released as a
salary cap casualty this offseason.
Oakland ranked 18th in total
defense and 28th in scoring defense
last year in coach Dennis Allens rst
season in charge but showed signs of
improvement late in the year that led
to the decision to bring back coordi-
nator Jason Tarver for a second sea-
Tarver will have to work in quite a
few new players into his scheme. All
three of the new players will likely be
in the mix for starting jobs with
Maiava expected to replace Wheeler
at outside linebacker after Wheeler
got a $26 million, ve-year deal from
Miami with $13 million guaranteed.
Maiava started 13 games last sea-
son for Cleveland with 30 solo tack-
les, two sacks, two forced fumbles
and three passes defensed. Maiava
has played 50 games over four sea-
sons with the Browns after being a
fourth-round pick out of Southern
Sims played just eight games last
season for Cincinnati after beginning
the year on the physically unable to
perform list with a hamstring injury.
He had 12 solo tackles and one inter-
ception as a reserve. He has ve
sacks in 60 career games.
Hunter spent the past three seasons
in Denver, sitting out last year with a
triceps injury. But he has familiarity
with both McKenzie and Allen. He
played the rst three years of his
career in Green Bay where
McKenzie worked in the front ofce.
He then played in Denver in 2011
when Allen was defensive coordina-
Hunter has 11 sacks, three forced
fumbles and six fumble recoveries in
88 career games with Green Bay,
Detroit and Denver.
The Raiders also re-signed defen-
sive back Coye Francies to a one-
year, $630,000 deal after letting him
become a free agent when they didnt
tender him a contract.
Francies played mostly on special
teams in his rst season with the
Raiders when he got only 11 snaps
on defense. Francies averaged 23.8
yards on his 20 kick returns and also
played on coverage units for
Raiders sign trio of free agent defenders
Were excited to add three veterans through free
agency, helping to create depth and competition on

opportunity surfaces.
Reggie McKenzie, Oakland Raiders general manager
By Barry Wilner
Wes Welker sure knows how to
pick his quarterbacks.
The star receiver, Tom Bradys
favorite target, is leaving New
England and heading to Denver,
where hell join Peyton Manning and
the Broncos.
Also getting new deals were
Reggie Bush in Detroit, Dashon
Goldson in Tampa Bay, and even
Ray Lewis with ESPN.
Day 2 of the NFLs free agency
frenzy was highlighted by Welker
grabbing a two-year deal with the
Broncos, who had the AFCs best
regular-season record last year. He
gives Manning one of the steadiest
targets the four-time league MVP
ever has had.
When you look at Wes in the mid-
dle of the eld, you cant cover him,
Broncos boss John Elway said. He
does such a tremendous job of get-
ting open, nding seams in zones,
beating man-to-man coverage. So,
hell be a huge asset for us inside.
The best slot receiver in the league,
Welker caught 118 passes for 1,354
yards and six TDs last season. That
the Broncos are signing a top player
away from New England certainly
didnt hurt, either.
Anytime you can take a player
from a team you have to compete
against, it helps, especially the cal-
iber of Wes Welker, Elway said.
New England is there year in and
year out and thats a team we have to
beat to get where we want to get.
Denver also came to terms on a
two-year deal with defensive tackle
Terrance Knighton, formerly of
Jacksonville, and a one-year contract
with linebacker Stewart Bradley,
who played with the Cardinals the
past two seasons. Later in the
evening, the team added cornerback
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie with
a one-year deal.
Bush agreed to a four-year deal
and could ll a huge hole at running
back. The Lions havent been able to
count on 2010 rst-round draft pick
Jahvid Best, whose career is in doubt
because of concussion issues.
Its a running backs dream,
Bush said. One of the reasons I
wanted to come here is to be able to
bring a balanced attack.
Bush adds to a strong offense led
by record-setting All-Pro receiver
Calvin Johnson. The second overall
pick in 2006 by New Orleans, Bush
rushed for 986 yards for Miami last
season after gaining 1,086 yards in
2011, his first year with the
The thing that was important to us
was not just the talent of Reggie
Bush, but also the way those talents
complemented the other players we
have on offense, coach Jim
Schwartz said. That was really the
basis of our interest in Reggie.
The Lions also landed safety
Glover Quin and defensive end Jason
Jones and retained cornerback Chris
All-Pro safety Goldson gets a ve-
year contract worth $41.25 million.
He receives $8.25 million per year
and $22 million in guaranteed
money. He spent the past two sea-
sons on one-year contracts with the
49ers, including last year with the
franchise tag for $6.2 million.
Hard work really pays off. I
remember signing up to play foot-
ball, hiding it from my mom, as a
youngster growing up in Harbor
City, Calif., Goldson said. My jour-
ney, I wouldnt say it was rough, but
it was a little rocky.
Free agent defensive back Charles
Woodson had a meeting with the
NFC champion Niners in the Bay
Area on Wednesday, according to his
agent, Carl Poston.
Also Wednesday, former Kansas
City Chiefs defensive end Glenn
Dorsey signed a two-year contract
after meeting with the Niners. The
deal could pay Dorsey up to $7 mil-
lion with incentives, a person with
knowledge of the contract told The
Associated Press. The person spoke
on condition of anonymity because
terms werent announced.
Cleveland remained active, agree-
ing to terms with linebacker Quentin
Groves and tackle Desmond Bryant
to further bolster a defense that
added Ravens linebacker Paul
Kruger hours after free agency
With the additions of Paul and
Desmond, we believe that we have
signicantly improved our defense
overall, particularly our front seven,
Browns CEO Joe Banner said.
Kruger is one of many Super Bowl
winners to leave the Ravens, includ-
ing hard-hitting safety Bernard
Pollard, who was released
Wednesday. The biggest loss for
Baltimore was an expected depar-
ture: Lewis announced in early
January that he was ending his 17-
year career. Then he led the Ravens
to the championship.
On Wednesday, he joined ESPN as
a studio analyst an intense one, no
Im ready to bring the same level
of passion to this next phase of my
life as I brought to the eld during
my years as a player, Lewis said.
Baltimore signed defensive line-
man Chris Canty, offensive lineman
Ramon Harewood and running back
Damien Berry.
Kansas City added cornerback
Dunta Robinson, receiver Donnie
Avery and offensive lineman Bryan
Mattison to the three free agents it
signed the previous day when the
marketplace opened.
The Chiefs, who have the No. 1
pick in next months draft after a 2-
14 season, agreed to deals with tight
end Anthony Fasano, defensive tack-
le Mike DeVito, and quarterback
Chase Daniel on Tuesday, when they
also nalized the trade with San
Francisco for starting QB Alex
After hiring Andy Reid as coach
and John Dorsey as general manager,
the Chiefs signed wide receiver
Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin
Colquitt to long-term deals and fran-
chised left tackle Branden Albert.

The extra week is good. It is better to get the

Bruce Bochy would like Zito to be a little
more consistent.
Zito was not quite as consistent with his
command, Bochy said. He threw some great
pitches but he missed pretty good on some
pitches, too, but overall it was a pretty good
outing for him.
Reds left-hander Arroyos throwing error on
a bunt by former teammate Wilson Valdez
allowed a run to score. Arroyo yielded four
It is hard play to duplicate that in practice,
Arroyo said. Its a play that youll have
maybe three times in a season. It is good to get
it in now.
Arroyo won a Gold Glove in 2010.
Ive never seen Bronson throw the ball
away like that, Dusty Baker said. Hes one
of the best.
Arroyo needed extra work in the bullpen
after he left the game because of a low pitch
count. The 36-year old has pitched more than
200 innings in seven of the last eight seasons.
My innings went too quickly, Arroyo said.
I only had 45 pitches through four innings. I
had to go to the bullpen and throw 15 more.
This spring is a week longer and thats good
for pitchers. We should get up to 100 pitches
before we leave. Theres nothing worse than
losing a game you should have won early in
the season because you only got to 80 pitches
once in spring training.
Chris Heisey, the Reds fourth outelder and
top pinch hitter, homered off Javier Lopez to
tie the game at 3. It was his rst of the spring.
The young Giants hitters broke the game
open with six runs in the top of the eighth
against Reds prospect Pedro Villarreal.
Ricky Oropesa, the Giants third pick in the
2011 draft homered off Villarreal. Jaun Perez
followed with his rst home run of the spring.
Johnny Monnel, a left-handed hitting catcher,
hit two doubles.
Overall our kids swung the bats good,
Bochy said. Johnny has been hitting the ball
since he got here. You want these guys to draw
some attention to themselves.
The Reds pitching was good until the end.
Everybody threw the ball well until the
eighth, Baker said. Villarreal has been hit
hard. It is hard to sit on your hands and watch
but he has to get his work in. He is better than
that. Hes a ne young man.
Andres Torres left in the top of the third
after being thrown out trying to stretch a dou-
ble into a triple. Torres had ulike symptoms.

runs this spring, leading the Giants. He leads
the Giants with a .417 average. ... Giants OF

Theyre ball-hawking defense presents a prob-
lem for us. However, we were in the lead in
the third quarter and then all of sudden they
went on a run on us to get ahead by nine
points. We were playing, just a little bit tired.
Tired from chasing around a superbly tal-
ented Mariya Moore, who had a triple double
in the win 28 points, 10 rebounds and 13
Shes a talent and Im sure shell be play-
ing in college some day, Paye said. She had
great anticipation, great hands. And it always
seemed like she knew where we were trying to
pass the ball and she would get there rst.
We got ahead early, as weve done
throughout the postseason. We were up 8-2,
but we just didnt go on a run. The previous
time, we had gone up on them early and wed
usually get a double-digit lead, and then coast
to the end. But these guys, their team battled
and fought and all of sudden we were chasing
leads in the second and third quarters. We
exerted too much energy in doing that.
I think we did turn the ball over a good
amount of times, Price said. I think if we
were to do it again, just controlling the ball a
bit more and taking our time with our passes
... that would have helped us out a lot.
Still, the Knights played with ton of heart.
And for players like Lauren Lete (6 points)
and Drew Edelman (23 points, 12 rebounds),
it was a tting end to outstanding Menlo
It was denitely surreal, Lete said. It did-
nt seem like that was my last game. But then
again, this is how I would want to go out,
against the defending state champions in a
game where we kept it to single digits. Its
crazy, just having that be my last time playing.
Its very emotional and its also such a great
honor to have played Menlo basketball.
She played her heart out, Paye said of
Its been such an amazing season, Price
said. Looking back on how a great a season
weve had it was kind of also a celebratory
thing and how we were underdogs but got as
far as we wanted to.
Price added of playing with Menlo legends
Edelman and Lete: They basically built this
program. It was amazing to play with them.

Half Moon Bay (6-3) entered play hitting
.301 a team, and continued its offensive tear
of getting runners on base at a superb rate.
The Cougars had runners in scoring position
in every inning but one, totaling eight hits in
the game, along with drawing three walks and
three hit batsmen.
Our team is denitely one of those teams
that can put anybody in the game and they can
come through in any kind of situation,
Howell said. We have a really deep team.
Were really condent with the guys we have.
Berghammer exemplied Half Moon Bays
approach to getting on base. The junior
reached base four times yesterday, each time
by a different method, including taking one
for the team to lead off the decisive seventh
In addition to setting the table at the plate,
Berghammer also went the distance on the
mound to earn his rst win of the year. The
left-hander also took one for the team on the
mound when he was drilled with a line drive
in the sixth inning.
With the game tied at 3-3, Mills had runners
at second and third with one out. But after an
ineld y for the pivotal second out, Mills
junior Mike McWhirter smoked a liner back
to the mound. Berghammer didnt even have
time to react as the ball winged the wrist of his
glove hand. As Berghammer winced in pain,
the ball deflected to shortstop Henry
Fassinger, who made a bare-handed pickup
and red an off-balance strike to rst to end
the threat.
I only saw a split second of a glare of the
ball coming back at me, Berghammer said. I
was just reacting. It wasnt quick enough but
(Fassingers play) still denitely kept us in the
Mills (1-7) got on the board in the third
when Paul Winakur tripled up the gap in right-
center and later scored on a groundout by
Roberto Zucchiati.
Half Moon Bay answered back in the bot-
tom of the frame, though. Brad Kelly led off
with a single before Berghammer walked.
Cleanup hitter Cole Watts followed with an
RBI single to center to tie it, but the Cougars
didnt stop there. Peter Richardson reached on
a fielders choice when Berghammer got
pegged at home. But Howell followed with an
RBI single to left to score Watts. Richardson
later scored on an errant pickoff throw to give
the Cougars a 3-1 lead.
Mills rallied in the sixth to tie it. Winakur
led off the inning with a double to right, and
Zucchiatti doubled him home. Zucchiatti
advanced to third on a groundout to the right
side by Robert Sand. Then, Esponilla drilled a
single to right past a drawn-in ineld to tie it
I saw the ineld was in, Esponilla said. I
knew we had one out. What I was trying to do
is I knew we had a runner on third base
I was just trying to keep it to the right side of
the eld. Mostly I was just trying to get it up
for a y ball. Just hit it hard to the right
side, and it just worked out for me.
Mills reliever Robert Sanchez took the loss
in two-plus innings of work, departing for
Zucchiati after allowing two runners to reach
in the seventh. Kyle Vallans took a no-deci-
sion through four innings. Vallans a junior
left-hander is shaping up to be the Vikings
ace this season.
He kept us in it for four innings, Mills
manager Tony Adornetto said. The one
inning where they scored they just found
holes and guys were moving around. Thats
going to happen. But his last (three) starts
have been excellent.
The Vikings were noticeably in good spirits
after the game, after being dealt a rash of
blowouts in recent weeks.
Its good that were loose, Adornetto said.
Baseball is a very humbling game. Its prob-
ably better for a team to be even keel not
get super high on a win, not get super down on
a loss. Playing some of the early games when
we werent even in the ballgames, its tough.
Its very tough. With these guys being in it,
hopefully them being loose gets them to stay
positive for the next time.
Half Moon Bays pitchers have now hurled
three consecutive shutouts. Watts, the
Cougars ace, went the distance Saturday
against Harbor. Richardson followed with a
complete game Monday against El Camino.
Were going to probably end up going
more by committee as it goes, Half Moon
Bay manager Terraszas said. Now, the last
three times we pitched complete games, but I
dont expect to do that when we start getting
into league. I think well have a lot more guys
that are pitching that havent thrown as many
innings as we want yet.

Sports brief
Thursday March 14, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
boxing. He started me playing soccer when I
was 9 years old and we spent a lot of early
Saturday nights watching soccer. Back in the
mid-1970s, soccer was not on every sports
channel on television. In fact, there were no
dedicated sports channels. What we had was
PBSs broadcast of Soccer Made in
Germany. It was a one-hour broadcast of an
edited Bundesliga game played earlier in the
week the top division in Germany. It was
there the seeds of my passion for the beauti-
ful game were cultivated. Its when I fell in
love with Bayern Munich and striker Karl
Heinz Rummenigge.
Once European soccer broadcasts reached
nearly every cable subscriber in the 2000s, it
wasnt uncommon for me to drop by my par-
ents during a big Champions League game
and watch it with my dad before work. He
was always amazed at the magic these top-
ight players possessed in their feet.
Near the end, soccer on the television in
his room always seem to calm and mesmer-
ize dad in his hospital bed.
On his nal night, I left the his room with
the television on the Bernard Hopkins-
Tavoris Cloud boxing card on HBO. Much
like soccer, dad raised me on the sweet sci-
ence from the time I was a little kid. I
remember dad going to San Francisco in
1977 to watch Muhammad Ali-Leon Spinks I
ght on closed circuit television, the precur-
sor to todays pay-per-view. I remember
watching television on the 13-inch, black-
and-white television in my parents room,
looking for any news about the ght. I
remember seeing a crawl on the bottom of
the screen, telling the world Spinks had upset
the heavyweight champ.
Not that dad was upset. He was a Smokin
Joe Frazier fan, among others. Through the
years, we watched the great ghters of the
1980s Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy
Hearns, Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran. And
when PPV entered the boxing scene, Id call
dad up to defray some of the costs and we
would watch the big ght of the night.
I think dad was never a big sports fan
because he could never sit still long enough
to take in an entire game. He always had to
be on the move. Maybe thats why he was so
taken to the pursuit of hunting, something he
handed down to me and my brother. He was
a very skilled, humane hunter who never
took anything out of season or wantonly
killed animals.
Not only did he teach us how to hunt, he
taught my brother and me the ethics behind
the hunt as well as proper gun-handling
While I never really moved past dove hunt-
ing, my dad and brother both take big game.
Dad hunted deer all over the western United
States and ve times he went on Africa
safari. He always offered to take me
which my brother readily accepted but I
never took him up on it. Not for any moral
reason. The real reason is having to clean the
kills. Im a little squeamish that way.
My dads hunting passion correlates to my
pro-gun stance. Taught how to properly han-
dle a rearm from the time I was about 3
years old, I have been around weapons for
most of my life. Im not saying there should-
nt be some reform on the issue, but I also
dont have a problem with the way things are
now. I respect rearms and acknowledge the
danger they represent. One of the things my
brother and I did to blow off the steam the
last week was to head into the desert behind
his house in the Reno area and go plinking
target shooting. Not many people, howev-
er, get to plink around with an AR-15.
But dad would have had a blast with it.
Dad was all about having a blast. He just
focused on a few things, but he attacked
them with a passion.
Maybe thats where I get my passion
sports or otherwise.

his rst four NFL seasons, then played in only
four games last year as he was limited by a left
calf injury sustained in a September practice. It
eventually landed him on season-ending injured
reserve in November, and the former rst-round

He is ready for a fresh start out West with

I really look forward to the opportunity,
Dorsey said. I got the call from my agent and I

And animated defensive line coach Jim
Tomsula was right there waiting to pick him up,

He basically told me Im going to have the

Thats all I need.
When Dorsey was asked whether he ran into
Woodson at team headquarters, he just chuckled

Feb. 15 with two years remaining on his con-

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh: Theyre both former

A 15-year NFL veteran and the 1997

Goldson signed a $41.25 million, ve-year
deal that includes $22 million in guaranteed
money, a person with knowledge of the contract
told the AP. The person spoke on condition of
anonymity because the Bucs didnt announce
terms of the contract. Goldson is due to earn
$8.25 million per season.
Goldson was vocal about how he didnt want
to stay with the 49ers on a one-year deal after
playing each of the past two seasons on such
short commitments. While Harbaugh said two
days after the 34-31 Super Bowl loss to
Baltimore that keeping Goldson long-term was
expected to be a high priority this offseason,
that no longer seems to be the thinking of the
franchise as it looks to build on last seasons run

Some Americans could see their insurance bills
double next year as the health care overhaul law
expands coverage to millions of people.
The nations big health insurers say they
expect premiums or the cost for insurance
coverage to rise from 20 to 100 percent for
millions of people due to changes that will
occur when key provisions of the Affordable
Care Act roll out in January 2014.
Mark Bertolini, CEO of Aetna Inc., one of
the nations largest insurers, calls the price
hikes premium rate shock.
Weve done all the math, weve shared it
with all the regulators, weve shared it with all
the people in Washington that need to see it,
and I think its a big concern, Bertolini said
during the companys annual meeting with
investors in December.
To be sure, there will be no across-the-board
rate hikes for everyone, and theres no reliable
national data on how many people could see
increases. But the biggest price hikes are
expected to hit a group that represents a rela-
tively small slice of the insured population.
That includes some of the roughly 14 million
people who buy their own insurance as
opposed to being covered under employer-
sponsored plans, and to a lesser extent, some
employees of smaller companies.
The price increases are a downside of
President Barack Obamas health care law,
which is expected to expand coverage to near-
ly 30 million uninsured people. The massive
law calls for a number of changes that could
cause premiums for people who dont have
coverage through a big employer to rise next
year at a time when health care costs already
are expected to grow by 5 percent or more:
Changes to how insurers set premiums
according to age and gender could cause some
premiums to rise as much as 50 percent,
according to Americas Health Insurance Plans,
or AHIP, an industry trade group thats funded
by insurers.
A new tax on premiums could raise prices
as much as 2.3 percent in 2014 and more in
subsequent years, according to a study com-
missioned by AHIP. Policyholders with plans
that end in 2014 probably have already seen an
impact from this.
Requirements that insurance plans in many
cases cover more health care or pay a greater
share of a patients bill than they do now also
could add to premiums, depending on the
extent of a persons current coverage, accord-
ing AHIP.
The Obama administration says the law bal-
ances added costs in several ways, including
tax credits that will bring down what many
consumers will pay for insurance.
Insurers warn of overhaul-induced sticker shock
Some Americans could see their insurance costs double this year as the U.S. health care
overhaul expands coverage to millions of people.
By Judy Lin
SACRAMENTO A Democratic lawmaker
introduced a package of bills Wednesday to
address an expected doctor shortage as
California prepares to insure millions of new
patients under federal health care reforms.
Sen. Ed Hernandez of West Covina said his
bills would expand services that can be provided
by nurse practitioners, optometrists and pharma-
cists in order to help alleviate a shortage of pri-
mary care physicians, particularly in rural areas
and inner cities. The bills are SB491, SB492 and
Hernandez, an optometrist, said his bills
would allow nurse practitioners to see Medicaid
and Medicare patients even if the doctors they
work for do not.
Optometrists could check for high blood pres-
sure, and pharmacists could order laboratory
testing to detect diabetes.
Here in the state of California, we have a
capacity issue, he said. We have a workforce
The California Medical Association
opposes the bills, saying the move would
create two classes of care, said spokes-
woman Molly Weedn.
The group representing 35,000 doctors
believes the state should focus on building more
medical schools, adding residency slots and
expanding programs that help doctors pay off
student loans in exchange for working in under-
served communities.
Making sure that were utilizing everybody
the best is the answer, not expanding scope of
practice and changing job descriptions and mov-
ing pieces around, Weedn said.
Starting in 2014, California will help millions
of uninsured people gain access to health care in
two key ways: Through a new insurance market-
place that will offer subsidies and tax credits to
individuals and small business; and by expand-
ing Medicaid, the federal-state health program

Wednesday that would prevent the

Republicans say President
Barack Obama is trying to weaken

claim that is disputed by adminis-

By all accounts this winter was
shaping up to be a mild one. Notice I
said was.
Amazingly, in mid-January I still
had lettuce plants in my garden.
Granted, they were not really grow-
ing much, and their leaves were
slightly bitter compared to spring let-
tuce, but they were nonetheless still
green and very much alive.
Normally, here in my zone 6b gar-
den in Rhode Island, we have a
killing frost in November. This year,
almost a month into winter, my gar-
den had not frozen solid. It was a rst
for me, and very exciting.
Now, barely a month later, a lot has
changed. Following a week of subze-
ro temperatures that were ushered in
on an arctic express (a phrase local
weather forecasters had been waiting
to use since winter started), we were
hit with what is now being known as
the Blizzard of 2013.
Even if you were unaffected by the
February noreaster, you likely saw
the images on television. The storm
dumped two feet of heavy, wet snow
that was ushered in on wind gusts of
up to 65 m.p.h. The wet snow clung
to every exposed surface, especially
evergreen trees and shrubs. The fol-
lowing day, temperatures dropped
into the single digits with strong
gusty winds delivering an unforgiv-
ing one-two punch to the snow and
ice-laden landscape.
After the storm subsided my yard
looked like the horticultural version
of Armageddon. Three very large and
very old trees blew over, smashing
multiple others as they crashed to the
ground. Trees that somehow
remained upright had limbs ripped
from their trunks by the weight of the
snow. Others had their tops snapped
off leaving jagged stumps at their
peaks a permanent reminder of
how abruptly a mild winter can end.
Mid-winter can be brutal. One day
you are marveling at leafy greens
braving frosty nights in the vegetable
garden and the next you are cleaning
up several feet of snow and the shat-
tered remains of 100-year-old trees.
It takes a healthy dose of optimism
to be a gardener. Over time, you real-
ize that heartbreaks like fallen trees
become opportunities to plant some-
thing new. The section of your garden
once blanketed in dense shade is now
bathed in full sun. Time to shop for
sun-loving plants.
Now that days are gradually
becoming longer and the sun is
climbing higher in the sky, it seems
the worst is behind us. I, for one, am
looking ahead to spring. Under the
piles of snow, my spring bulbs are
already poking out of the ground.
The southern exposure of my front
yard has patches of melted snow
revealing clumps of snowdrops
already showing their pointy white
ower tips. In a few short weeks,
these harbingers of spring will be
blooming before the last of the snow
has melted.
Elsewhere in the garden other signs
of winters loosening grip are appear-
ing in spite of the extensive snow
cover. My witch hazel shrub has
begun to show bits of its yellow
ower buds in response to the suns
increasing strength. This large shrub
(or small tree, as the case may be)
begins unfurling its thin, yellow crin-
kled ower petals long before other
plants wake from their winter dor-
mancy. Though it is tolerant of dap-
pled shade, I have situated mine in
full sun, which ensures it will pro-
duce ample amounts of ower buds
each year. I have sited it in plain view
of the house so I can enjoy it as it
kicks off the annual sequential cycle
of blooming shrubs and trees in my
Every year about this time I cut
several bud-lled branches off the
witch hazel to bring into the house. I
place them in a vase with warm
water, and within days the buds burst
open like yellow reworks and their
delicate fragrance lls the room.
The task of cleaning up my yard
after the Blizzard of 2013 is no fun,
but the shock of the destruction is
softened by the subtle signs that
spring is not far off.
Picking up pieces after winters fury
The idyll of a mild winter ended abruptly in early February as blizzards and
Arctic blasts chilled much of the nation. Cabbage languishes underneath
new snowfall in a winter garden plot.

Gardening can be an intoxicating
hobby, especially if the botany is booze-
Consider the possibilities: grapes fer-
mented into wine, corn distilled into
bourbon, hops used to avor beer and
fruit to sweeten liqueurs.
Why run to a liquor store when you
can savor the harvest from your own
cocktail garden?
Three processes are involved in con-
verting plants into serviceable drinks:
fermentation, distillation and mixing,
according to Amy Stewart, author of the
new book The Drunken Botanist: The
Plants That Create the Worlds Great
Drinks (Algonquin Books).
Virtually anything that produces
sugar fruit and grains can be used
distilled, fermented or drunk, Stewart
said in an interview. Most people get
involved with the mixers.
Fermenting adding yeasts to turn
plant sugars into alcohol came rst,
she said. High-proof beverage alcohol
(20 percent and above) came later with
distillation, or heating fermented liquids
into a vapor and then re-condensing that
into a more concentrated mix.
A cautionary note: Its illegal to distill
anything in the United States without a
You can ferment but you cant distill
without the feds knocking on your door,
Stewart said.
In addition, know your plants.
Understand what youre doing if youre
out there gleaning, Stewart said. A lot
of plants become solvents when mixed
with alcohol. Dont pick anything that
might become potentially deadly.
A dizzying array of plants has been
converted into alcohol over the ages,
everything from agave (tequila) to yams
(beer and vodka). Many plants are used
primarily as garnishes, such as
spearmint (mint julep), olives (martini)
and cherries (Manhattan).
The marketplace is untapped for this
emerging type of niche gardening, said
Tim Russell, a spokesman for Territorial
Seed Co. in Cottage Grove, Ore.
Territorial is teaming with Stewart to sell
a cocktail-friendly line of herbs, fruit,
vegetables and owers.
A lot of young people are looking to
do cooler things in their gardens like
grow their own cocktail ingredients,
Russell said. Were hoping this will
draw them further into gardening.
The average liquor bottle contains a
great deal more than straight alcohol,
Stewart writes.
Once a spirit leaves the still, it is sub-
ject to endless experimentation with
herbs, spices, fruits, nuts, bark, roots and
owers, she said. Some distillers claim
to use over a hundred different botani-
cals in their secret recipes.
So if distillers are continuing to exper-

Downton Abbey style
inspires casual decor
By Amy Lorentzen
Intrigued by the drama and inspired by the sophistication of
British aristocrats in Downton Abbey, some fans are plotting
to bring the series style into their own homes, from gilded n-
ishes to opulent upholstery to portrait paintings.
Weve gone so casual in the last decade in terms of home
decor. I think there is a desire to be a little more formal, or a
little more glamorous, says Kristie Barnett, an interior design
blogger in Nashville, Tenn. That doesnt mean it cant be
Downton Abbey, in production for its fourth season, fea-
tures the noble Crawley family upstairs and its servants
downstairs in a sprawling country estate. The characters are
struggling to bring the estate and their traditional sensibilities
into the 1920s, a time of social and political ferment.
Ornate drawing rooms, owing boudoirs, vibrant gardens
and crisp, clean servants quarters make the gorgeous back-
drop for the PBS Masterpiece melodrama.
So how do you bring some of that aristocratic look into a
comfortable modern home?
One of the simplest ways to achieve the upstairs look of
Downton Abbey is to apply gold metallic paint for a gilded
nish on wood furniture, picture frames, mirror edges and
Add jewel-toned leather furniture or leather throw pillows to
your reading areas for a twist to the muted espresso brown
that has been popular in recent years.

other decorative items, including bookends and
lamp stands.
In her living room, Barnett, who blogs at, used gold paint to make
a barley-twist coffee table appear worthy of
nobility. Golden candlesticks and a crystal door-
knob atop piles of books nish the look.
Gilt was all the rage during the British
Edwardian Age, says Barnett. And its all the
rage in my house.
Richly upholstered settees, footstools, chaise
lounges and Bergere chairs can add a touch of
bygone beauty, but you should allow plenty of
space for more livable pieces such as a tradi-
tional sofa. If you cant afford new furniture,
consider adding silk or damask throw pillows.
Tapestries and oriental rugs can be affordable
and add the feel of afuence. Check out for Downton Abbey-style fabrics
and textiles.
Another easy way to achieve the upstairs
style, while keeping things practical and com-
fortable, is to hang an ornate light xture or
Affordable plaster or stencil medallions
placed around light xtures can be another eye-
catching element.
Or can use candlelight, which will bounce off
mirrors, glass and crystal, creating the sort of
warm glow that makes the Crawleys multi-
course dinners look so enticing.
The return to detail and decoration includes
opulent upholstery, drapes and wall coverings,
says Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of
People seem to be ready for more and more
luxe materials and dramatic nishes, he says.
Even wallpaper, which was trending modern,
is back to classic oral patterns and English tra-
ditionalism, but often with a bit of a twist.
Painted walls are darker, with a gloss nish,
experts say. You can create the upper-crust feel
with bold jewel tones, including emerald and
Also in the traditional Downton Abbey
palette, says Mary Lawlor, manager of color
marketing for Kelly-Moore Paints, are refresh-
ing pastels and creams, One of the mansions
expansive drawing rooms, for example, features
a pale green wallpaper further softened with
richly upholstered furniture in a mix of rose and
classic ivory.
The British nobility takes its heritage serious-
ly, and there are painted portraits and landscapes
throughout the shows castle. If youre at a rum-
mage sale or consignment shop, pick up similar
art and create a small grouping on one wall. You
dont have to be descended from these somber-
looking subjects to bring their sophistication
While many elements of Downton Abbey
style have a feminine appeal, theres no mistak-
ing the bold, masculine feel of Lord Granthams
library. Add jewel-toned leather furniture or
leather throw pillows to your reading areas for a
twist to the muted espresso brown that has been
popular in recent years.
Consider turning a little-used dining room
into a study, using the table as a hearty desk t
for the lords and ladies of your home.
People are wanting to do something different
in their dining rooms, so a lot of dining rooms
are being lled with bookcases, Barnett says.
She advises painting bookcases the same shade
as walls, but in a gloss or lacquer nish.
Contrasting with the rich decor of the shows
upstairs rooms is the subdued, neutral palette
and texture of the downstairs staffs living and
working quarters.
Think natural materials like linen, cotton,
raw wood, and a simplistic farmhouse-type aes-
thetic that is inuencing DIY projects, says
Becki Speakman, trend and design director for
Michaels Stores.
One way to fashion the look is to use washed
and softened painters dropcloths for inexpen-
sive curtains and slipcovers.
Lawlor recommends a palette of grounded
grays and varnished ivory.

iment, why not gardeners?
Stewarts garden-themed recipes can be the
foundation for:
Infused vodkas. Fill a clean jar with fruit,
herbs or spices and then add vodka. Seal, store
and sample until your taste buds tell you its
ready to drink.
Homemade grenadine. Peel a half-dozen
pomegranates, leaving the seeds and mem-
branes intact. Squeeze and lter until youve
made about two cups of juice. Pour that into a
saucepan, add 1 to 2 cups of sugar, simmer
and stir in an ounce of vodka, which acts as a
preservative. The syrup should be good for
about a month.
Maraschino cherries. Clean and pit a small
batch of fresh, sour cherries. Loosely ll a
Mason jar with the cherries and cover with
brandy or bourbon. Seal the jar and refriger-
ate. Use them in drinks or over ice cream.

Visiting this springs dicor previews often
felt like exploring an art gallery. There was
an artistic vibe to everything from dinner-
ware to drapery, art photographs to textiles.
Manufacturers are now able to reproduce
artwork with impressive detail and preci-
sion. Originals that may have been painted
or inked retain evidence of brush and pen.
Computer-generated designs have greater
depth of color and pattern than in the past.
And photo prints are even more striking.
Zara Home has a bouquet of lovely throw
pillows for spring with vintage prints or
botanical ones reminiscent of paintings by
the Masters. Mariposa features a flock of

He asked people to pray for him
first. He was asking for support. He
showed a real sense of humility, Rossi
told the Daily Journal.
Rossi also appreciates the signifi-
cance and simplicity of the title Pope
The name implies mercy and
social justice, Rossi said.
Picking a pope from South America
is a good step toward broadening lead-

Meanwhile, students at the all-boys
Junipero Serra High School in San
Mateo took a break from class yester-
day morning to watch the ceremony on
television, school President Lars Lund
told the Daily Journal.
All the students watched the
announcement. Its a day of celebration
for the church, he said.
Picking a pope who served in
Argentina shows the shifting demo-
graphics of the church, he said.
It shows the universal impact of the
church, that the Gospel of Christ unites
every culture, race and country, Lund
Students and staff at Notre Dame de
Namur University welcomed the col-
lege of cardinals decision to elevate to
the papacy the first ever person from
Latin America, President Judith
Maxwell Greig wrote the Daily Journal
in an email.
Hispanics represent about 40 per-
cent of the Catholic Church worldwide
and, as a Hispanic serving institution
as well as a Catholic one, we recognize
the significance this election holds for
both the church and the greater society.
We look forward to learning more
about Pope Francis and we all pray that
God grants him the wisdom to lead the
church wisely in these difficult times,
Maxwell Greig wrote in the email.
Some, however, are unsure of what
the new popes mission will be.
I dont know if hes a liberal or a
conservative, said the Rev. Michael
Konopik, with Saint Roberts Catholic
Church in San Bruno.
It is significant that the new pope is
from South America, he said, but what
it means for the future is an uncertain-

liminary hearing since his August
arrest and arraignment. Instead, after
the grand jury returned its indictment,
prosecutors had him arrested and
charged yesterday morning on the
We were not being successful in
getting this case to a preliminary hear-
ing, said Chief Deputy District
Attorney Karen Guidotti on why prose-
cutors sought an indictment. We got
tired of waiting.
The indictment propels Kelley
straight to Superior Court and Kelley
will appear Monday afternoon to dis-
miss the original case.
Sheriffs investigators arrested Kelly
in August after the county crime lab
reran DNA from fluids recovered from
the crime scene and hit on him. Kelley,
a registered sex offender who has lived
in Oregon and California, resided in
Ben Lomond at the time of Thurs
death and nearly a decade later, in
1995, was convicted of rape in
Humboldt County.
Thur was last seen early Dec. 6, 1986
leaving a party in Boulder Creek with
the intention of hitchhiking. Later that
day, a tourist stopping to check out the
view from Skyline Boulevard just north
of Alpine Road spotted her body eight
feet down the embankment with a
denim jacket over her head and torso.
Investigators determined Thur had
been sexually assaulted, beaten and
possibly strangled but were never able
to pinpoint a viable suspect.
Once Kelley was in custody, prose-
cutors said they believed he picked
Thur up and took her back to his Ben
Lomond home where she was sexually
assaulted. Kelley, then 23 and married,
is accused of strangling or smothering
Thur and leaving the body in the
Prosecutors cannot charge him with
rape or kidnapping because the statute
of limitations has expired. However,
the special circumstance murder charge
still carries the death penalty or life in
prison without parole.
Guidotti said the District Attorneys
Office has not excluded the possibility
of a capital trial but is still investigat-
ing his background.
However, she said, we want to make
a decision sooner rather than later.
Defense attorney Lisa Maguire did
not return a call for comment.

sion regarding property fronting
Marsten Avenue as phase 2 depending
on the outcome of developing the
Bishop Road site.
The council also considered Tuesday
night whether it should prepare a parcel
map for the property and then sell off
individual lots on the open market.
It decided against that option and also
put on hold an exclusive negotiation
agreement option with a private builder
to develop the property. The city
received three proposals in November
from developers for the project site that
the council did not approve.
The city wants to have a small amount
of single-family residences built on the
property so it can pay back the loan by
the end of the year.
The council will consider selling a
portion of the Marsten Avenue frontage
property to help nance the purchase of
the 35 acres until it is determined how
much of the $1.5 million loan obligation
can be retired by the sale and develop-
ment of the Bishop Road property,
according to a staff report.
Much of the property is on steep
slopes and is considered undevelopable
and the remainder of the open space will
be connected to Belmonts trail system
in the hills. About 22 acres are suitable
to develop on Bishop Road and Marsten
and Ralston avenues, according to a
staff report.
The primary expectations of the
developer are to develop only those por-
tions of the site that are deemed suitable
for residential homes and identify the
best uses for the balance of the open
The property has a total of 87 plots
included in the purchase that the city bid
on in an auction held by the U.S.
Marshals Service in 2009.

By Brian Murphy and Michael Warren
VATICAN CITY On the streets in
Buenos Aires, the stories about the cardinal
who would become the rst pope from the
Americas often include a very ordinary back-
drop: The city bus during rush hour.
Tales are traded about chatting with
Archbishop Jorge Bergoglio as he squeezed in
with others for the commute to work. They
sometimes talk about church affairs. Other
times it could be about what he planned to
cook for dinner in the simple downtown apart-
ment he chose over an opulent church estate.
Or perhaps it was a mention of his affection
for the tango, which he said he loved as a
youth despite having one lung removed fol-
lowing an infection.
On the balcony of St. Peters Basilica just
after a rain shower Wednesday, wearing
unadorned white robes, the new Pope Francis
also appeared to strike the same tone of sim-
plicity and pastoral humility for a church des-
perate to move past the tarnished era of abuse
scandals and internal Vatican upheavals.
While the new pontiff is not without some
political baggage, including questions over
his role during a military dictatorship in
Argentina in the 1970s, the selection of the
76-year-old Bergoglio reected a series of
history-making decisions by fellow cardinals
who seemed determined to offer a suggestion
of renewal to a church under pressures on
many fronts.
He is a real voice for the voiceless and vul-
nerable, said Kim Daniels, director of
Catholic Voices USA, a pro-church group.
That is the message.
Pope Francis, the rst from Latin America
and the rst from the Jesuit order, bowed to
the crowds in St. Peters Square and asked for
their blessing in a hint of the humble style he
cultivated while trying to modernize
Argentinas conservative Roman Catholic
Church and move past a messy legacy of
alleged complicity during the rule of the mili-
tary junta of 1976-83.
Brothers and sisters, good evening, he
said before making a reference to his roots in
Latin America, which accounts for about 40
percent of the worlds Roman Catholics.
Groups of supporters waved the white-and-
blue Argentine ags in St. Peters Square as
Francis made his rst public appearance as
pope. Bergoglio reportedly had envoys urge
Argentines not to y to Rome to celebrate his
papacy, but instead donate money to the poor.
In taking the name Francis, he drew con-
nections to the 13th century St. Francis of
Assisi, who saw his calling as trying to
rebuild the simple spirit of the church and
devote his life to missionary journeys. It also
evokes references to Francis Xavier, one of
the 16th century founders of the Jesuit order
that is known for its scholarship and outreach.
Francis, the son of middle-class Italian
immigrants, came close to becoming pope
during the last conclave in 2005. He reported-
ly gained the second-highest vote total in sev-
eral rounds of voting before he bowed out of
the running before selection of Vatican insid-
er Joseph Ratzinger, who became Pope
Benedict XVI.
By returning to Bergoglio, the conclave
confounded speculation that it would turn to a
younger candidate more attuned to younger
elements in the church and with possibly
more stamina for the rigors of the modern
papacy with nearly nonstop obligations and
frequent global travel. Francis appears in
good health, but his age and possible limita-
tions from his single lung raise questions
about whether he can face the demands of the
Unlike many of the other papal contenders,
Bergoglio never held a top post inside the
Vatican administration, or curia. This outsider
status could pose obstacles in attempts to
reform the Vatican, which has been hit with
embarrassing disclosures from leaked docu-
ments alleging nancial cover-ups and inter-
nal feuds.
But the conclave appeared more swayed by
Bergoglios reputation for compassion on
issues such as poverty and the effects of glob-
alization, and his fealty to traditional church
teachings such as opposition to birth control.
His overriding image, though, is built
around his leaning toward austerity.
Pope Francis: Simple image, complex past
said Jose Antonio Cruz, a Franciscan friar at
the St. Francis of Assisi church in the colonial
Old San Juan district in Puerto Rico.
Everyone from Canada down to Patagonia is
going to feel blessed.
The new pontiff brings a common touch.
The son of middle-class Italian immigrants,
he denied himself the luxuries that previous
cardinals in Buenos Aires enjoyed. He lived in
a simple apartment, often rode the bus to
work, cooked his own meals and regularly
visited slums that ring Argentinas capital.
He considers social outreach, rather than
doctrinal battles, to be the essential business
of the church.
As a champion of the poor and the most
vulnerable among us, he carries forth the mes-
sage of love and compassion that has inspired
the world for more than 2,000 years that in
each other, we see the face of God, President
Barack Obama said in a statement.
As the 266th pope, Francis inherits a
Catholic church in turmoil, beset by the cleri-
cal sex abuse scandal, internal divisions and
dwindling numbers in parts of the world
where Christianity had been strong for cen-
While Latin America still boasts the largest
bloc of Catholics on a single continent, it has
faced competition from aggressive evangeli-
cal churches that have chipped away at strong-
holds like Brazil, where the number of
Catholics has dropped from 74 percent of the
population in 2000 to 65 percent today.
Francis is sure to bring the church closer to
the poverty-wracked region, while also intro-
ducing the world to a very different type of
pope, whose first words were a simple,
Brothers and sisters, good evening.
He asked for prayers for himself, and for
Benedict, whose stunning resignation paved
the way for his election.
I want you to bless me, Francis said in his
first appearance from the balcony of St.
Peters Basilica, asking the faithful to bow
their heads in silent prayer.
Francis spoke by phone with Benedict, who
has been living at the papal retreat in Castel
Gandolfo, and told cardinals he plans to visit
the retired pontiff on Thursday, according to
U.S. Cardinal Timothy Dolan. The visit is sig-
nicant because Benedicts resignation has
raised concerns about potential power con-
icts emerging from the peculiar situation of
having a reigning pope and a retired one.
Earlier Wednesday, shouts of joy went up
from the throng huddled under a sea of
umbrellas when plumes of white smoke
poured out of the copper chimney atop the
Sistine Chapel a few minutes past 7 p.m.
Habemus Papam! We have a pope!
they chanted as the bells pealed in St. Peters
Basilica and churches across Rome.
After what seemed like an endless wait of
more than an hour, they cheered again when
the doors to the loggia opened and a cardinal
stepped out and revealed the identity of the
new pontiff, using his Latin name, then
announced he would be called Francis.
In choosing to call himself Francis, the new
pope was associating himself with the much-
loved Italian saint from Assisi known as a
symbol of peace, poverty and simplicity. St.
Francis was born to a wealthy family but
renounced his wealth and founded the
Franciscan order of friars; he wandered about
the countryside preaching to the people in
very simple language.
He was so famed for his sanctity that he was
canonized just two years after his death in
St. Francis Xavier is another important
namesake. One of the 16th-century founders
of the Jesuit order, Francis Xavier was a leg-
endary missionary who spread the faith as far
as India and Japan giving the new popes
name further resonance in an age when the
church is struggling to maintain its numbers.
In choosing Francis, the cardinals clearly
decided that they didnt need a vigorous,
young pope who would reign for decades but
rather a seasoned, popular and humble pastor
who would draw followers to the faith and
help rebuild a church stained by scandal.
Catholics are still buzzing over his speech
last year accusing fellow church ofcials of
hypocrisy for forgetting that Jesus Christ
bathed lepers and ate with prostitutes.
In a lifetime of teaching and leading priests
in Latin America, Bergoglio has also shown a
keen political sensibility as well as the kind of
self-effacing humility that fellow cardinals
value highly, according to his ofcial biogra-
pher, Sergio Rubin.
Bergoglios legacy includes his efforts to
repair the reputation of a church that lost
many followers by failing to openly challenge
Argentinas murderous 1976-83 dictatorship.
His own record as the head of the Jesuit order
in Argentina at the time has been tarnished as
Many Argentines remain angry over the
churchs acknowledged failure to openly con-
front a regime that was kidnapping and killing
thousands of people as it sought to eliminate
subversive elements in society. Its one rea-
son why more than two-thirds of Argentines
describe themselves as Catholic, but fewer
than 10 percent regularly attend Mass.
Under Bergoglios leadership, Argentinas
bishops issued a collective apology in October
2012 for the churchs failures to protect its
ock. But the statement blamed the eras vio-
lence in roughly equal measure on both the
junta and its enemies.
Bergoglio has been very critical of human
rights violations during the dictatorship, but
he has always also criticized the leftist guer-
rillas; he doesnt forget that side, Rubin said.
Bergoglios own role in the so-called Dirty
War has been the subject of controversy.
At least two court cases directly involved
Bergoglio. One examined the torture of two
of his Jesuit priests who were kidnapped in
1976 from the slums where they advocated
liberation theology. One accused Bergoglio
of effectively handing him over to the
