Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
SAN DIEGO — Home sales
dropped and prices rose in the San
Francisco Bay area last month as
supplies remained tight, the real
estate research firm DataQuick
reported Thursday.
A total of 5,404 houses and con-
dominiums were sold, down 1.8 per-
cent from January and more than 6
percent from February of 2012,
DataQuick said.
The median sales price for a home
in the nine-county area was
$405,000. That was down 2.4 per-
cent from
January but
still nearly 25
percent higher
than a year
Al t h o u g h
prices remain
well below
the peak of

Hotel guests in South San
Francisco will need to give basic
information when checking in — a
move city officials made in hopes of
curbing human trafficking issues.
Under the new rules, hotels will
be required to get basic information
— like a real name, address and
vehicle infor-
mation — from
guests who
check in. While
most already do
this, not all do.
Such informa-
tion will be
used to help
police should
problems arise.
The council unanimously approved
the new rule but did have questions
about enforcement.
Mayor Pro Tem Karyl
Matsumoto, for example, said a
possible pimp could be deterred by
the requirement of offering his or
her full name. But without enforce-
ment, a hotel may not actually
require a clerk to get the informa-
When asked and not able to pro-
vide the information, the hotel faces
a fine that starts at $100 and goes up
based on the number of infractions,
explained police Sgt. Scott
Since 2005, the South San
Francisco Police Department has
investigated more than 160 cases of
human trafficking involving 182
escorts and/or pimps, said
Campbell. It also maintains a data-
base of more than 500 identified
pimps and/or escorts. Since 2012,
South San Francisco police have
responded to 3,260 incidents at its
27 hotels. From those, 564 resulted
in full investigations and that led to
160 arrests. Campbell said many
outstanding cases would have been

Sharp drop in homes
lost to foreclosure

Seventeen years after the idea first
originated, investor Terry Fancher
stood on land yesterday that used to
house horses and jockeys at the old
Bay Meadows race track that will
soon be home to the state’s largest
new transit-oriented development.
Fancher, with Stockbridge Real
Estate Funds, helped secure the
sprawling San Mateo property just
before entitlements were granted for
the first phase of the Bay Meadows
project in 1997.
Now, work on the second phase is
well under way and some homes
will be released Saturday to pre-
qualified buyers at both the Amelia
and Landsdowne, the first 156
homes to be built out of a total of
1,170 that will ultimately be con-
structed on the 83-acre site by sev-
eral different builders.

er Wilson Meany welcomed a group

Iowa officer stops
speedy SUV, helps deliver baby
IOWA CITY, Iowa — An Iowa City
police officer pulled over a speeding
SUV — then helped the driver and his
passenger deliver a baby.
When Officer Kevin Wolfe stopped
the vehicle Sunday night, the driver
jumped out and yelled, “Sir, we’re deliv-
ering a baby right here, right now!”
Wolfe tells Cedar Rapids TV station

assisted in the final stages of the delivery
and wrapped the child in a blanket
before escorting the family to a hospital.
The episode was captured by Wolfe’s

Police spokeswoman Vicki Lalla says
Wolfe didn’t issue a speeding ticket and
so did not take down the parents’ names.
Acquittal in Philly fight
that cost man his eye
PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia
jury has acquitted a man of assault in a
bar parking lot fight that cost another
man his left eye.
The Philadelphia Inquirer says the
Common Pleas panel on Wednesday
acquitted Matthew Brunelli of aggravat-
ed assault.
Prosecutors alleged Brunelli punched
John Huttick in the eye with an object
that may have been a key in the August
2011 fight in the parking lot of the New
Princeton Tavern.
Defense attorney Eileen Hurley says
her client used only his fist to punch
Huttick, who was trying to intervene in a
fight between Brunelli and another bar
Earlier proceedings ended in a mistri-
al after Huttick’s $3,000 prosthetic blue
eye popped out as he was testifying,
startling jurors. The judge called that an
“unfortunate” incident and granted the
defense’s mistrial motion.

Shareholders with Franklin Resources
shot down a proposal from one of their
own Wednesday that would have pulled
funds out of companies that contribute to
Shareholder Armen Carapetian, chair
of the Armenian National Committee of
America San Francisco Bay Area chap-
ter, presented the proposal at the compa-
ny’s annual shareholder meeting in San
Mateo Wednesday.
He requested “that the board institute
transparent procedures to avoid holding
or recommending investments in compa-
nies that, in management’s judgment,
substantially contribute to genocide or
crimes against humanity, the most egre-
gious violations of human rights.”
Carapetian was accompanied by
eighth-grader Rubina Karapetyan,
whose family fled government-sanc-
tioned persecution in Azerbaijan as
thousands were killed in the region in
the 1980s and ’90s, according to a state-
ment from the group Investors Against
Only 8.7 percent of
shareholders voted in
favor of the proposal,
however, as nearly
84 percent voted
against it, according
to IAG.
The proposal was
the first shareholder
proposal to appear
on the company’s
annual proxy ballot
in 19 years, said Susan Morgan, IAG’s
Morgan was not too discouraged by
the “no” vote, however, as it was the first
time shareholders even had a chance to
consider such a proposal.
Franklin Resources is the parent com-
pany of Franklin Templeton
Investments, with headquarters in San
Mateo. The company’s board had rec-
ommended to shareholders to vote
against the proposal, according to IAG.
Before the vote, Carapetian said:
“Franklin Templeton’s recommendation
against the proposal states that ‘fostering
economic and business development
through investment can often help in
achieving reforms.’ In some cases, that
statement would be correct. However, it
is inappropriate and certainly does not
apply to the genocidal regime in Sudan
that has resisted international condem-
nation for 10 years and continues its
genocide and crimes against humanity
against its own people in Darfur and
recently in the Nubu Mountains and
Blue Nile states.”
Shareholders approved a similar geno-
cide-free investing proposal at the ING
Emerging Countries Fund in June 2012
with 59.2 percent of votes in favor of the
proposal and only 10.8 percent opposed,
according to IAG.
The ING board took a neutral position
on the proposal which helped it succeed,
according to IAG.
IAG is staffed by volunteers and is a
project of the Massachusetts Coalition to
Save Darfur Inc., a nonprofit agency.

Genocide-free investing proposal shot down
Small group of shareholders with San Mateo’s Franklin Resources support idea
By Sasha Lekach
Led by former congressman Pete
McCloskey, a group of surfers and pro-
ponents of open access to a beach near
Half Moon Bay passed through a gate
and marched down a privately owned
road to the beach Thursday.
A group of about 10 busted through
the gate that was erected in 2010 and is
covered in restrictive signs after the
property was sold to a private owner in
2008, and made their way to Martin’s
Beach, just off of state Highway 1, a
few miles south of Half Moon Bay,
around 10 a.m.
San Mateo County sheriff’s vehicles
monitoring the beach and access roads
allowed the group to walk toward the
beach where competitive surfer Joao
DeMeceado took to the waves.
“The public has the right to do that,”
McCloskey said as he pointed to
DeMeceado catching a wave.
No arrests were made.
The group met at the beach in support
of a lawsuit filed against Martin’s Beach
1 and 2, LLC, on Tuesday by the
Burlingame-based Cotchett, Pitre &
McCarthy law firm on behalf of the
Surfrider Foundation.
The lawsuit claims that owners failed
to obtain a coastal development permit
for the new gates and restrictive signs
that prevent the pubic from accessing
Martin’s Beach Road, in direct violation
of the California Coastal Act.
Court records from a separate beach
access suit filed last October in San
Mateo County Superior Court name
venture capitalist Vinod Khosla as the
presumed primary owner of Martin’s
Joan Gallo, the attorney for Martin’s
Beach LLC, could not immediately be
reached for comment Thursday.
Mike Wallace, a longtime surfer and
competitive surf coach from Moss
Beach, said Martin’s Beach, “should be
open until proven otherwise.”
McCloskey, 85, whose district includ-
ed San Mateo County when he served in
Congress in the 1970s and ’80s, recalled
coming to the beach in past decades
when public access was unrestricted and
cars could park further down the road.
Wallace said the restriction of the
beach, which is known in the surf com-
munity for its consistent swells that
break over underwater reefs, will affect
future surfers and coastal enthusiasts.
“The next generation doesn’t get to
experience what we’ve experienced,” he
DeMeceado is fighting to keep the
small stretch of coastline accessible.
“Surfing is just a small component of
what’s going on here,” he said.
Late last year, a group of five surfers
were arrested and cited for trespassing,
but the San Mateo County District
Attorney’s Office dropped the charges
in February, according to surfing and
conservation attorney Mark Massara,
who is working with open access sup-

Dashing diner swallows plea deal
The San Carlos restaurant diner who
reportedly dashed off without paying for
$70 worth off food was
sentenced to four months
in jail after taking a plea
deal on a single felony
charge of burglary.
Patrick James Higgins,
43, must also spend three
years on supervised pro-
bation after his 120 days
in jail and pay Sneakers
Bar and Grill $70.24 to
cover the cost of his meal.
San Carlos police nabbed Higgins March
1 after employees of the San Carlos Avenue
restaurant flagged them down. Higgins
reportedly had enjoyed a full meal before
heading out the rear exit. The workers fol-
lowed him out the alley and alerted a nearby
parking enforcement officer who appre-
hended Higgins.
Higgins is also on parole for a 2010 con-
viction for evading police in a car.
Second Harvest’s holiday drive
comes up 600,000 meals short
Second Harvest Food Banks’ Holiday
Food and Fund Drive missed its goal by
$300,000 and, unless it
can raise additional
funds, it means 600,000
meals won’t be available
to feed those in need,
according to officials.
“Nearly 250,000 peo-
ple count on us each
month for at least some
of their food,” said Kathy
Jackson, CEO of Second
Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San
Mateo counties. “We are grateful for the
support we have received. This is a very
generous community. But if we aren’t able
to make up for this shortfall, we won’t have
enough food to meet the need.”
Second Harvest set a goal of $12.4 million
for its Holiday Food and Fund Drive, but
was only able to raise $12.1 million. The
food bank raises half its revenue in that
Second Harvest Food Bank partners with
more than 300 nonprofit agencies to provide
food at more than 740 sites throughout
Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, includ-
ing pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and
after-school programs. Second Harvest is
one of only a few food banks that does not
charge its partners for the food it provides.
Last year, the food bank provided the equiv-
alent of 41 million meals to the community,
according to officials.

Last year, Mark Harvin met with now-state
Sen. Jerry Hill to make amends for burglariz-
ing his San Mateo garage a dozen years ago.
Now, Hill, D-San Mateo, is helping
Harvin’s repayment support the rehabilitation
program both credit with his turnaround.
Allstate Insurance reimbursed Hill for his
losses after his encounter with Harvin so now,
with a little prodding from the legislator, the
company is paying up to $1,100 in Harvin’s
restitution to Project Ninety.
Learning of the money shift left Harvin
feeling very relieved and changed his per-
spective on the automatic withdrawals.
“It changed my perspective. I feel like I’m
paying restitution more to Jerry now, more to
P90 and it’s like I’m trying to do twice as
much good rather than having it just go into
some nameless account,” Harvin said.
Hill got the idea after receiving an unex-
pected letter from the state Office of Victim
and Survivor Rights and Services Restitution
Unit informing him of a coming $995.26
check. Harvin had been paying back more
than $30,000 owed in $50 monthly incre-
ments and the state was passing on a portion
of that amount plus two other checks for
“I figured this wasn’t money out of my
pocket so under normal circumstances I’d just
send Allstate my check. But it didn’t seem
right in this particular instance,” Hill said.
“Mark is really impressive to turn his life
around and find the help he needed through
Project Ninety so I thought that needed to be
rewarded in some form.”
Flash back to July 2001 and Hill would
have given a different opinion of Harvin who,
as a drug-addicted teen, ransacked the then-
county supervisor’s free-standing garage
looking for anything to finance his crystal
meth and alcohol addiction. Hill spotted the
18-year-old and, using his black belt karate
skills, subdued Harvin until police arrived.
Harvin spent the next six years cycling
through rehab, relapses and jail. He tried
Project Ninety once but was kicked out. A
second time stuck and Harvin, now clean,
moved from client to assistant management
for development and is not an administrative
specialist. He also began making amends to
those he wronged, including Hill, and in
February 2012 the two men sat down togeth-
er at Project Ninety.
“I never thought life could be good like
this,” Harvin said at the meeting. On
Thursday, Harvin said the good feeling con-
Project Ninety Executive Director James
Stansberry called news of Hill’s donation “a
pleasant surprise” and said it was also the first
he had heard of Harvin making restitution.
On any given day, the agency has about 160
clients and is challenged to meet a growing
need because of the shaky economy.
“Particularly in the last few years, money
has been shorter and the need has been
greater. Donations give us some opportunity
to do a little bit more,” Stansberry said.
While Hill concedes the $1,100 Allstate is
redirecting is nowhere close to the full
amount of restitution, he said it is still a recog-
nition of Project Ninety’s work.
“Mark has done a good job and both he and
Project Ninety deserve the credit,” Hill said.
Allstate also acknowledged the fortunate
turn of events.
“We are pleased that this story had a happy
ending and that the perpetrator of this crime
has turned his life around, in part through
Project [Ninety],” wrote Christopher W. Clay,
California regional counsel for legislative and
regulatory matters, in a letter to Hill.

A teacher at Parkway Heights Middle
School in South San Francisco was arrested
for cruelty after he allegedly pushed some stu-
dents during a class activity, according to
police and the school’s principal.
Fernando Salazar, 51, allegedly lost control
of his class March 8 and was physically trying
to eject students who he felt were being dis-
ruptive, according to South San Francisco
It was reported to the principal and, based
on the circumstances, Salazar was placed
under arrest for willful cruelty to a child,
according to police.
He was also put on immediate administra-
tive leave, according to a letter sent to parents
by school Principal Marco Lopez.
In the letter, Lopez writes “some Parkway

education at the California College of
Podiatric Medicine, (DPM, 1949), and
at the age of 64, obtained his Masters of
Public Administration from the University of San Francisco, (MPA 1987). Dad was the proud
father of Steven (Dorothy), David (dec. 1951), Gregory (Marian), Jeffrey (Erika), Elizabeth
(Joseph, dec. 1996) Asciutto, and Gerald (Avelina), who will always celebrate his life. Loving
and supportive grandfather to Charles (Christine) Bradley, Caelyn Bradley, Vincent Asciutto,

fishing, and supporting the arts. “Doc” as he was called by many family, friends and patients,
absolutely loved his profession, never calling it work because he was helping people and that
made him feel good in his heart. Dad always told us, “You need to find something you truly love
to do and it will never feel like work”. He never wanted to retire because he would miss his

One of three Norteño gangmembers accused
of attacking a man eating at a Redwood City
taqueria because they thought he was a
Hispanic gang rival faces 16 years in prison as
a second-striker after pleading no contest to
felony assault.
Juan Carlos Madero, 31, also admitted caus-
ing great bodily injury and committing a vio-
lent felony as part of the plea deal reached
Thursday. Prosecutors sought a flat 14-year
punishment but a judge capped the maximum
at 16 years when Madero is sentenced May 2.
Madero, Robert Gallegos, 29, and Jonathan
Fuentes Ortiz, 22, were each charged in the
July 21, 2012 assault at Tacos El Grullense on
Woodside Road in Redwood City. Prosecutors
say the three defendants and other Norteño
gangmembers taunted the man because he
wore a blue shirt and they did not believe his
claims of being Persian. Madero reportedly
punched him in the face and the entire group
then attacked the man with broken bottles and
punches, according to the
District Attorney’s Office.
The man suffered sever-
al cuts to his face. Police
reported the attack was
caught on surveillance
video and witnesses iden-
tified the defendants.
Gallegos is currently
scheduled for trial April 8.
Ortiz pleaded no contest
to felony assault and received four years in
prison. He was also sentenced to a concurrent
five-year term for a probation violation. He
had a five-year suspended sentence for attack-
ing his father because he blamed him for his
mother’s imprisonment. She is serving 13
years to life for feeding the older Ortiz a poi-
soned milkshake and kidnapping their 2-year-
old Ortiz, taking him to Mexico for eight
Madero remains in custody in lieu of
$225,000 bail. Gallegos is held on in lieu of
$200,000 bail.

Juan Madero
A San Mateo man convicted of breaking his
longtime wife’s jaw and ribs multiple times in
an attack last May received 39 years to life in
prison yesterday because his conviction was a
third strike.
Judge Stephen Hall denied a defense request
not to count Allen Williams’ prior convictions
of which five are considered criminal strikes.
In February, after a six-day trial, a jury
convicted Williams, 63, of felony domestic
violent and assault in the May 6, 2012 inci-
dent between him and his wife of more than
20 years. Williams punched the woman in the
face, knocking her down
and continued to kick and
punch her repeatedly,
according to prosecutors.
The woman managed to
get free and call 911. At
the hospital, she was diag-
nosed with a jaw broken in
two places, at least seven
broken ribs and substan-
tial bruising to her face,
neck, chest and arm.
Williams has been in custody in lieu of
$500,000 bail.

SACRAMENTO — State worker furloughs
saved California $5 billion over five years but
left taxpayers on the hook for $1 billion in
unused vacation because employees banked
many of their paid days off while they were
forced to stay home, according to a report
released Thursday.
The accumulated leave time greatly
increased the state’s cash liabilities because
employees must be paid for the unused time
off when they quit or retire from their govern-
ment jobs, the nonpartisan Legislative
Analyst’s Office found.
Payments to employees for accrued leave
time are now at historic levels, reaching near-
ly $270 million in the last fiscal year.
The furloughs began in February 2009 as a
way to help close ongoing state budget
deficits. But the report says many workers
simply used furloughs for time off instead of
their normal vacation days.
Report: Furloughs increase
California long-term costs

WASHINGTON — Senators writing a com-
prehensive immigration bill may dramatically
limit green cards for extended families of U.S.
citizens, reserving them for immediate family
members instead, a key lawmaker said
It would be a significant change to U.S.
immigration policy that’s long favored family
ties over economic or job criteria. And it’s
already sparking opposition from groups try-
ing to protect family-based immigration.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who is part of
a bipartisan Senate group negotiating the bill,
said the aim is to remake the immigration sys-
tem so it has a much clearer economic focus.
“Green cards should be reserved for the
nuclear family. Green cards are economic
engines for the country,” Graham said. “This is
not a family court we’re dealing with here.
We’re dealing about an economic need.”
Unlike most other industrialized nations, the
U.S. awards a much larger proportion of green
cards to family members of U.S. citizens and
permanent residents than to foreigners with
job prospects here. Green cards are permanent
resident visas and allow holders to eventually
become citizens.
About two-thirds of permanent legal immi-
gration to the U.S. is family-based, compared
with about 15 percent that is employment-
based, according to the Migration Policy
Institute. The remainder is largely humanitari-
Current law gives preference to spouses and
minor and unmarried children of U.S. citizens.
Permanent residents can petition for immedi-
ate family, and citizens can petition to bring in
their married children and siblings, but they’re
on a lower priority. Graham indicated that he
would prefer to eliminate the married children
and sibling categories altogether.
“We’re going to change fundamentally the
immigration system,” said Graham.
Kevin Appleby, director of migration policy
at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops,
criticized the proposed changes.
“What the senator’s not taking into account
is the social costs for not preserving families
in the immigration system, which is not as tan-
gible or measurable as an economic benefit,
maybe, but immigrant families do strengthen
our social fabric,” Appleby said.
Appleby said that instead of reducing green
cards for family members and increasing them
for employment ties, senators should simply
make more green cards available over all.
Lawmakers in the past, Republicans in partic-
ular, have opposed that approach. Meanwhile
they’ve been hearing pleas from the technolo-
gy industry for more high-tech workers and
from industries like hospitality and agriculture
that use lower-skilled workers.
Advocates agree that changes are needed to
the family immigration system. Right now
there are more than 4 million people waiting in
backlogs, with Filipinos in the sibling catego-
ry facing waits topping two decades. The
Senate group has committed to reducing that
The tension between family- and employ-
ment-based immigration has not gotten as
much attention in a debate that’s often
focused on border security and the fate of the
estimated 11 million illegal immigrants
already here, who would be given a path to
legalize their status in the Senate bill. But the
issue could become contentious as senators
work to finalize their legislation by next
In the last round of immigration negotia-
tions in 2007, the Catholic Church ended up
opposing action on the bill in part because of
discomfort with a proposal that replaced the
family-based system with one that awarded
points based on job skills, English ability,
education and family ties in handing out visas.
Senate immigration bill may limit family visas
“Green cards should be reserved for the
nuclear family. Green cards are economic engines for
the country. ...This is not a family court we’re dealing
with here. We’re dealing about an economic need.”

Census shows record
1 in 3 counties are dying
WASHINGTON — A record number of
U.S. counties — more than 1 in 3 — are now
dying off, hit by an aging population and
weakened local economies that are spurring
young adults to seek jobs and build families
New 2012 census estimates released
Thursday highlight the population shifts as the
U.S. encounters its most sluggish growth lev-
els since the Great Depression.
The findings also reflect the increasing eco-
nomic importance of foreign-born residents as
the U.S. ponders an overhaul of a major 1965
federal immigration law. Without new immi-
grants, many metropolitan areas such as New
York, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and St.

Republicans told President Barack Obama on
Thursday to tone down his political attacks

meeting said Obama acknowledged the point
without yielding ground — and noted that
Republicans criticize him freely. “To quote an
old Chicago politician, ‘Politics ain’t bean-

Activists seek charter change
Environmentalists hoping to stunt future
Redwood City development filed paper-
work the week of March 15, 2008 to
change the city’s charter to place the fate
of all projects involving open space in the
hands of voters rather than the City
The effort, known as the “Open Space
Initiative,” was a smack at the pending
Cargill saltworks plan although proponents
were hesitant to say so. The Cargill site,
approximately the size of the Presidio in
San Francisco, is the largest untouched
land parcel on the Bay and was the subject
of intense scrutiny for more than a year as
developers, the city and the public grapple
with its future.
Instead of targeting Cargill directly, those
pushing the initiative, particularly nonprofit
group Save the Bay, said that week a char-
ter amendment was a way to broaden
democracy and involve voters directly in
rezoning decisions.
In unveiling the initiative the week prior,
Save the Bay Executive Director David
Lewis said the proposal is a “response to
the assault on parks and open space.”
City officials, who said they were broad-
sided by the proposal, saw the effort differ-
ently. Mayor Rosanne Foust expressed dis-
appointment the city was not alerted to the
ballot initiative and worried a city charter
amendment will be harmful to the pre-vote
public hearing process in the long run.
“They have truly hijacked our communi-
ty process,” Foust said.
Man on bike robs bank
A man in a wig used a briefcase and a
bike to rob a San Mateo bank the week of
March 15, 2008, according to police. The
man walked into the Bank of America at
3150 Campus Drive at approximately 2:15
p.m. on Thursday of that week and
announced to a teller that he was robbing
the bank, according to police.
He handed the teller a brown briefcase
and told her to put the money in the case.
The man received an undisclosed amount
of cash, took the briefcase and walked out
of the bank. He was last seen riding a bicy-
cle through Laurelwood Shopping Center,
according to police. No weapons were seen
or mentioned and no one was injured,
according to police.
San Bruno wants limos off streets
In a quick and simple discussion the
week of March 15, 2008, the San Bruno
City Council agreed to push ahead with a
new ordinance that will ban limousines
from residential streets close to the San
Francisco International Airport, said Mayor
Larry Franzella
Residents in the Belle Air neighborhood
often reported trouble parking since limou-
sine drivers waiting to be called to the air-
port choose to park in the area. The neigh-
borhood is located off of San Bruno
Avenue on the other side of Highway 101.
After months of working with airport offi-
cials, San Bruno decided to take matters
into its own hands by banning the big
limos from residential streets.
Mills teacher facing sex charges
A Mills High School teacher was facing
charges of sexual exploitation and drugs
the week of March 15, 2008 after authori-
ties found pictures of female students using
the school bathroom on his work computer,
according to Millbrae police.
David Lista, 35, was arrested Friday
morning of that week after police found
methamphetamine while serving a search
warrant at his Belmont apartment. Police
were looking for additional evidence for
the sexual exploitation case that began
Thursday of that week. Meanwhile, school
authorities alerted parents and assured they
would do everything they could to prevent
this from happening again. The school was
performing maintenance on its computer
system that week and determined it was
running slow. An outside computer consult-
ant was called to examine the system and
noticed a large file he believed was causing
the slowdown.
The consultant opened it and found 15 to
25 images of female students using the
school’s bathroom, according to police.

Strongly disagree with editorial
I have never seen such a one-sided,
baseless editorial on an issue as the
Daily Journal’s March 13, 2013 piece
on the Coastside Fire Protection
District’s recall vote on April 9, 2013.
The cost will be at least $1.4 mil-
lion-$2 million per year higher than we
pay for Cal Fire services based on
board’s incomplete plans. This doesn’t
include a health benefit package, re-
open CalPERS account and the retire-
ment package for many more millions
of dollars. Plus there are the costs of
running a shortened fire academy for
new recruits for our new stand-alone
department. So you are advocating that
we can pay more for less qualified,
under trained personnel.
The San Mateo County Civil Grand
Jury Report in April of 2011 refutes
most of your reasons for voting against
the recall.
“The grand jury believes that the
board has failed to articulate any rea-
son that justifies the desire to terminate
Cal Fire services. Furthermore, in the
course of its investigation, the grand
Jury heard many accusations from
CFPD Board members regarding Cal
Fire performance that were unfounded,
outdated or of relatively minor signifi-
The report concluded “that the resi-
dents of the CFPD are being well
served by Cal Fire; that it is unlikely
the coastside residents would benefit
from the reestablishment of a stand-
alone fire department; and that the
CFPD should continue to improve,
rather than undermine, the Coastside-
Cal Fire relationship.”
The report’s findings stated, “Prior to
contracting fire and emergency servic-
es to Cal Fire in 2008, the CFPD …
were beset with operational, labor
management, morale and legal issues.
Employee turnover was high.” Is this
what we want to return too?

Editorial stance is a disservice
Your March 13 editorial “No on
Coastside Fire Protection District
recall” has done the coastside residents
a major disservice. Without validating
your “facts” with readily available doc-
umentation, you have provided resi-
dents with significant misinformation
that could cause us to lose the best
qualified and effective fire service we
have had in decades.
Our previous stand-alone department
was managed and run by the same
recallees and individuals who want to
repeat their performance with the dys-
functional, crony-based “conflict of
culture” we had five years ago. Those
days were a morass of lawsuits, griev-
ances, overtime scams and budget
overruns that cost our taxpayers mil-
lions in unnecessary expenditures.
Now we have a highly qualified, expe-
rienced staff who are providing excel-
lent services and who are, in fact,
meeting the terms of their contract and
providing all the services the board has
chosen to include in our contract. Your
statements to the contrary are absolute-
ly not true and irresponsible, and there
is much documentation from within
the district plus several outside investi-
There is no possibility of having in
place a fully qualified staff and struc-
ture by July 1, and there is at this time
no backup plan. Merger with Bay side
departments is not feasible for our iso-
lated area, with frequent closure of
access roads and totally different
needs. Cal Fire has served the county
well for 50 years, and serves the areas
to the south, east and immediate north
of us, plus the tunnel. This is the pre-
ferred and most logical choice for us,
and is what the public wants to keep.

Keep Cal Fire
Your editorial “No on Coastside Fire
Protection District recall” of March 13
is a surprise. How can you possibly
conclude that “The decision to move to
a stand-alone department was not taken
lightly and was made with the resi-
dents of the district in mind.”
Did you not read the 2011-12 San
Mateo County Civil Grand Jury report?
If you had, you would know that even
before Cal Fire was hired board mem-
ber Mackintosh was the named plain-
tiff in a legal suit opposing Cal Fire (a
suit that was rejected by three courts
and was supported by Fire Fighters
Local 2400). That a consulting firm,
which was hired by the district in
2010, concluded that Cal Fire was pro-
viding good service to the community.
That there was an on-going attempt to
derail Cal Fire. And that the criticisms
leveled at Cal Fire were unjustified.
The attempt to replace Cal Fire with
a local department was taken before
Cal Fire received the coastside con-
tract, and the residents were not con-
sidered. Much better to replace the
board members that have attempted to
create dissension, oust Cal Fire, and
mislead the residents, than replace Cal
Fire which is serving the residents

Cal Fire is the
right choice for coastside
Your statement that the coastside
cannot be well-served by Cal Fire is
false (Editorial, “No on Coastside Fire
Protection District recall” in the March
13 edition of the Daily Journal).
San Mateo County currently has a
50-year contract in place, with excel-
lent services provided by Cal Fire to
most of the unincorporated areas. The
coastside has, for the first time in
decades, been receiving very high-
quality fire and emergency service,
after the previous dysfunctional and
conflict-ridden stand-alone depart-
ments failed. These were run by the
same people who are proposing to
return to this fiscally irresponsible
model which contributed to its “culture
of conflict,” as one outside investiga-
tion termed it.
Board Members Alifano, Mackintosh
and Riddell of the Coastside Fire
Protection District are being supported
by Local 2400 and have been consis-
tently ignoring public input, financial
realities, safety considerations and
denying Cal Fire’s compliance of
Exhibit E in pursuit of returning us to
the days of constant lawsuits, griev-
ances and manipulated overtime
From your editorial, one can con-
clude that you are in favor of the Local
2400 union and a handful of local
politicians who want to micro-manage
by rewarding higher benefits and jobs
to friends and family, some who previ-
ously caused taxpayers so much grief
before. This is an egregious violation
of public trust.
Cal Fire provides professional, expe-
rienced fire service, not only to the
coastside but to the National Park
Service GGNRA, Devil’s Slide Tunnel
and SRA wildland areas including
medical response, cliff rescue, forestry
skills, tunnel rescue and hazmat miti-
gation. You are jeopardizing that by
parroting lies and misinformation to

Letters to the editor Downtown Burlingame
going through changes
’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, you couldn’t
have designed a more perfect downtown than that of
Burlingame. Anchored by a train station next to a
spacious park at the end of a retail-oriented avenue with a
beautiful library and an architecturally challenged, yet
adequate City Hall nearby — it has all the makings of
what many cities across the
country try to replicate.
So tinkering with this has
always proven to be problemat-
ic, yet a city that does not
progress often gets left behind.
So how does Burlingame
change with the times, while
maintaining its unique charac-
ter? That is part of a long and
involved process called the
Downtown Specific Plan.
The Burlingame Avenue
Streetscape Project, which is
causing all the current construc-
tion downtown, is sort of a tandem project that seeks to
revitalize the city’s main street into a promenade of sorts
with wider sidewalks, corner bulb-outs, classic street lights
and furniture along with other amenities to generally
improve the look of the street. It’s an ambitious project
that requires moving utilities and digging up significant
portions of the street for the improvements. One aspect
that may or may not prove popular is the wider sidewalks
to allow al fresco dining, but will remove some parking on
the main street to be replaced elsewhere and with parallel
spots. Most will enjoy the ability to dine outside, but many
who seek parking spots on Burlingame Avenue may not
enjoy the traffic backups while people try their hand at
parallel parking or even finding a spot in exactly the right
spot. However, I would already advise anyone to never
drive down Burlingame Avenue even before these changes
unless you have about 20 minutes to kill getting from one
end to the other.
Construction on this project is expected to be completed
by the summer of 2014.
In the meantime, there will be a series of workshops to
discuss other possible changes to downtown as part of the
Downtown Specific Plan. The first Downtown “Central
Sites” Community Workshop is 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
Wednesday, March 20 in the Lane Room of the public
library at 480 Primrose Road.
One of the primary goals of the Downtown Specific Plan
is to see if there is a way to make better use of the city’s
parking lots. The first parking lot up for discussion in this
workshop is Parking Lot E, right next to the post office.
There is currently a development proposal for the site with
100 residential units, 35,000 square feet of restaurant
space and/or retail and 125 residential parking spaces. To
make up for the lost parking, the developer last year sug-
gested paying in lieu fees or helping the city develop a
parking structure on lot J, across Park Road from Lot E.
There is also the matter of the post office itself, which a
historic resource evaluation conducted by a consultant
selected by the U.S. Postal Service concluded is eligible
for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The
evaluation was conducted as part of a plan to sell the loca-
tion because of the Postal Service’s financial woes.
However, the post office was found to be in excellent con-
dition and has very little alterations from its original state
in 1941 as a Public Works Administration building. So if it
were to be included in any development plan, its preserva-
tion would be paramount.
And then there is the issue with parking. With
Burlingame Avenue losing parking spaces with its
streetscape project (though they will be replaced else-
where), and a proposal to develop a central parking lot
with the addition of residences and retail, at first blush, it
seems this idea is a recipe for a traffic nightmare.
However, anyone who uses the lot by the post office dur-
ing a busy time can attest to the fact that the lot is not very
useful and is often jammed. Perhaps moving parking from
this alley-like area to a larger structure with available
spaces may be a solution, but it will take a very deliberate
and thorough planning process to make it not only work,
but make sense to everyone.
While I personally like the idea of making the entire lot
into a town square of sorts with the post office building as
a community center, I recognize the city may not have the
money for such a venture — especially if it is to provide
the lost parking elsewhere. I also question the need for
more retail or restaurants downtown. So with that in mind,
attending this workshop may be worthwhile for those of
you who have other ideas that may be better.

NEW YORK — The Dow Jones
industrial average has reached another
milestone, recording its longest winning
streak since 1996.
The index rose for the tenth straight
day Thursday, gaining 83.86 points to
close at 14,539.14. That’s an increase of
0.6 percent.
The last time the Dow knocked out 10
straight days of gains was November
1996. Back then, Internet companies
were still lining up to go public and
President Bill Clinton had just won
another term in the White House.
“It’s just a good run,” said Dan
Greenhaus, chief global strategist at the
brokerage BTIG. “And it speaks to opti-
mism about the future.”
Encouraging news on jobs gave the
market an early lift. The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index closed within two
points of its all-time high reached in
October 2007.
The S&P 500 index gained 8.71 points
to 1,563.23, a gain of 0.6 percent.
Signs that the economic recovery is
gaining strength have propelled the mar-
ket higher since the beginning of March.
Last month, the unemployment rate
dipped to 7.7 percent, the lowest level
since December 2008. Adding to evi-
dence that the job market is improving,
fewer Americans sought unemployment
benefits last week.
Record corporate profits and reassur-
ances from Federal Reserve officials that
they plan to keep interests rates at his-
torically low levels have also helped
push stocks higher. U.S. retail spending
increased in February at the fastest pace
in five months. That came despite higher
payroll taxes kicking in at the beginning
of the year.
“We’ve been getting some really good
economic statistics: jobless claims today
and retail sales yesterday,” said Doug
Cote, chief market strategist for ING
U.S. Investment Management. “And
that’s positive.”
The gains were broad on Thursday,
though slight. All 10 industrial groups in
the S&P 500 rose, led by energy compa-
nies. The Nasdaq composite rose 13.81,
or 0.4 percent, to 3,258.93.
MGM Resorts International’s stock
gained 7 percent after its biggest share-
holder, the financier Kirk Kerkorian,
requested permission to raise his stake in
MGM to a quarter of its shares.

NEW YORK — Solar panel installa-
tions in the U.S. grew 76 percent in 2012
as the cost of panels and the surrounding
equipment continued to fall, according
to an annual report by a solar trade
The U.S. installed panels capable of
producing 3,313 megawatts of peak
electricity, up from 1,887 megawatts in
2011, the report said. The panels
installed last year will generate about the
same amount of electricity over a year as
a medium-sized coal plant, enough to
power 400,000 U.S. homes.
Solar grew in large part because
prices continued to fall. The average
cost of a solar system dropped 27 per-
cent last year. Also, financing pro-
grams flourished that allow homeown-
ers to install solar on their roofs for
little or no money down while paying
less overall for electricity.
While helping installers, utilities, and
homeowners, the plummeting panel
prices have devastated the finances of
solar panel makers around the world.
The biggest U.S. solar manufacturer,
First Solar Inc., has lost money in each
of the last two years. Suntech Power
Holdings Corp. Ltd., the biggest Chinese
maker, is facing a cash crunch and
appears to be on the brink of bankruptcy.
Panel prices have fallen because
demand for panels in Europe, which is
world’s biggest solar market, has fallen
as government subsidies have declined.
At the same time, raw material costs
have plummeted and manufacturing
capacity, especially in Asia, has boomed.
This has created a glut in panels that has
persisted for the last three years.
Solar installers such as SolarCity
Corp., which went public late last year,
have benefited. The company’s shares
have more than doubled from its offering
price of $8 a share to $16.97 in morning
trading Thursday.
California led the nation in installa-
tions in 2012, with 1,033 megawatts, fol-
lowed by Arizona with 710 megawatts
and New Jersey with 415, according to
the report issued by the Solar Energy
Industries Association and GTM
The industry predicts installations will
continue to grow in 2013, though at a
slower pace. SEIA and GTM Research
predict installations will rise 29 percent
to 4,300 megawatts this year.
The U.S. government subsidizes solar
systems by offering a tax credit of 30
percent of the cost of the installation.
Many state governments offer additional
There are now 300,000 solar systems
installed in the U.S., according to SEIA.

last year, according to the Energy
Department, to 0.1 percent of the
nation’s total electric power generation.

LOS ANGELES — While the nation’s
foreclosure woes persist, new data show
they’re easing amid a resurgent housing
market, rising home prices and efforts by
some states to buy homeowners more
time to avoid losing their homes.
The number of U.S. homes repossessed
by lenders last month fell 11 percent from
January and declined 29 percent from
February last year, tumbling to the lowest
level since September 2007, foreclosure
listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. said
Some states continued to see sharp
increases in homes lost to foreclosure last
month, including Washington, Wisconsin
and Iowa. But home repossessions
declined both on an annual and monthly
basis in a majority of states, including
past foreclosure hotbeds such as
California, Georgia and Arizona.
All told, 45,038 U.S. homes completed
the foreclosure process in February.
That’s less than half of the 102,000
homes lost to foreclosure in March 2010,
when home repossessions peaked,
according to the firm’s records, which go
back to January 2005.
Foreclosures remain at more than dou-
ble the pace that RealtyTrac considers
normal, roughly 20,000 foreclosures a
month, the average in 2005. But their
national impact has been contained, said
Daren Blomquist, a vice president at
“It’s definitely safe to say we’re past the
worst of it at a national level,” he said.
Several factors are contributing to the
overall decline in completed foreclosures.
More jobs and ultra-low mortgage rates
are helping the once-battered housing
market recover, and the rising demand
combined with fewer available homes has
helped push home prices steadily upward
since last year. They posted their biggest
annual increase in six years in January.
Higher home values help restore equity
to homeowners, which can help those at
risk of foreclosure by improving their
chances of refinancing their mortgage to a
lower payment or place them in a better
position to sell their home.
In the first nine months of 2012, 1.4
million homeowners who had been
underwater on their mortgage, or owed
more than their home is worth, were
moved into positive equity, according to
data from CoreLogic.
The tight supply of available homes for
sale has created a sellers’ market, with
many properties drawing multiple offers.
That means even bank-owned homes and
those in some stage of foreclosure, which
typically sell at a discount to other homes,
are going for higher prices.
That has given banks further incentive
to let homeowners who have fallen
behind on their payments avoid foreclo-
sure by authorizing a short sale, when a
lender agrees to accept less for a home
than what the seller owes on their mort-

Journalist charged with hacking conspiracy
SAN FRANCISCO — A social media editor for the Reuters
news service was charged Thursday with conspiring with the
group “Anonymous” to hack into the
Tribune Co.’s computer system shortly
after he was fired from one of the compa-
ny’s TV stations.
Matthew Keys is charged with supply-
ing hackers in December 2010 with the
login credentials to the computer network
of Tribune Co., which owns the Los
Angeles Times, the FBI said. Keys had
been fired from a Tribune-owned televi-
sion station in Sacramento two months
earlier during the company’s bankruptcy. He was not working
for Reuters when he allegedly conspired with Anonymous.
According to the federal grand jury indictment handed
down in Sacramento, a hacker altered a Times news story
posted Dec. 14 and 15, 2010, to read “Pressure builds in
House to elect CHIPPY 1337,” a reference to another hack-
ing group.
The indictment alleges that Keys, 26, and another hacker
failed in another attempt to access the Tribune computer sys-
tem after the Times hack. Keys acquired the login information
while serving as the web producer for the Sacramento-based
FOX station KTXL, which is owned by Tribune Co.
Samsung challenges iPhone with Galaxy S 4
NEW YORK — Samsung Electronics is kicking up its
competition with Apple with its new Galaxy S 4 smartphone,
which has a larger, sharper screen than its predecessor, the
best-selling S III.
Samsung trumpeted the much-anticipated phone’s arrival
Thursday at an event accompanied by a live orchestra while
an audience of thousands watched the onstage theatrics. The
Galaxy S 4, which crams a 5-inch screen into body slightly
smaller than the S III’s, will go sale globally in the April to
June period.
In the U.S., it will be sold by all four national carriers —
Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile USA —
as well as by smaller ones US Cellular and Cricket.
Samsung didn’t say what the phone will cost, but it can be
expected to start at $200 with a two-year contract in the U.S.
JK Shin, the executive in charge of Samsung’s mobile com-
munications division, promised the money would be well
spent for a “life companion” that will “improve the way most
people live every day.”
Target buys two online kitchenware businesses
NEW YORK — Target is adding to its plate in the world of
cooking. The Minneapolis-based discounter announced an
agreement Thursday to buy Chef’s Catalog and assets of in two separate transactions. Financial terms
were not disclosed.
Chef’s Catalog, founded in 1979, is an online site that sells
cookware, bake ware, kitchen tools and other accessories
under such brands as Cuisinart, Le Creuset and KitchenAid.

Sequoia softball coach Scott Reynick never
felt comfortable moving up into the Peninsula
Athletic League’s Bay Division unless he
fully believed his team was prepared to battle
against some of the best teams in the Central
Coast Section.
After going undefeated (14-0) and winning
the PAL’s Ocean Division championship a
year ago, Reynick believes the time is now to
finally make the move. While the Cherokees
will hardly be favored to win the Bay Division
title — that goes through Carlmont — at
least they’re going in fully loaded.
“We thought we wanted to go up when we
thought we had some staying power,” Reynick
said. “We went 14-0 in the Ocean last year.
We felt good about where we were (as a pro-
gram) so we decided it was time to move up.”
So far, the Cherokees are making their
coach look good as they’ve jumped out to a 4-
1 start early in the season. The Cherokees —
and the rest of the PAL — will find out soon
enough who will compete for the Bay and
Ocean division titles when league play begins
While Sequoia may have lost last season’s
Ocean Division pitcher of the Year in Nicole
Kielty, Reynick is more than happy having
junior Gina Rodriguez in the circle. She didn’t
throw a lot last year behind Kielty, but
Reynick said she has been solid so far in the

While the baseball and softball
seasons are still in their nascent

League tennis season is nearing the
halfway point of the league season.
Thursday’s matchup between
Carlmont and host Aragon was sort
of an elimination match. Both teams
are chasing undefeated Menlo-
Atherton and if either the Scots or
the Dons have any hope of catching
the Bears, a win was necessary
The match was even more impor-
tant to the Scots, who came into
Thursday already with two losses —
a 4-3 decision to M-A and a shock-
ing 4-3 loss to Woodside. Aragon,
meanwhile, has only one loss on its
ledger — to the Bears.
Carlmont got off to a quick start
following a straight-set win from
Corey Pang at No. 1 singles, but
Aragon’s Issac Wang quickly fol-
lowed with a 6-1, 6-1 win of his own
at No. 2 singles. The Dons earned
the next two points that came off the
courts — a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 3
singles by Rahul Joshi and a victory
at No. 2 doubles, a 6-3, 6-2 win by
Mathew Fowler and Alex Ilyin —
giving the Dons a 3-1 lead in the
team score.
Carlmont got closer with a win at
No. 3 doubles from Alex Yang and

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Japan manager Koji
Yamamoto knows how difficult it will be for his
country to win a third straight World Baseball
He feels his squad got off to a good start in its
preparations for the semifinals.
Fighting through jet lag, Japan easily beat the
San Francisco Giants 6-3 in an exhibition game
Power-hitting first baseman Sho Nakata had
three hits, and second baseman Takashi Toritani
added two hits and two RBIs. Four of Japan’s
runs came against Giants starting pitcher
Yusmeiro Petit, including three in the second
inning when Toritani had a two-run double.
“It is not easy to win back-to-back. We’re
going for our third straight, and there is a lot of
pressure on our backs,” Yamamoto said through
a translator. “Our goal was to come here to the
United States. Once we get here, anything can
“We made good adjustments today (to the
new, outdoor environment), especially our pitch-
ers. I think we are in a good situation now,” he
said. “I think we are on track.”
Japan will play another exhibition game on
Friday against the Chicago Cubs in Mesa, before
heading trip to AT&T Park in San Francisco,
where they will face the Pool 2 runner-up (either
the United States, Dominican Republic or
Puerto Rico) on Sunday night.
Team Japan ace Masahiro Tanaka allowed a
run and three hits and struck out three in his two-
inning appearance, and eight pitchers combined
to allow five hits and strike out 10.
The Giants didn’t field their best lineup, start-
ing only five regulars, four of whom exited after
two at-bats. But manager Bruce Bochy was
impressed with Japan.
“They played well, they swung the bats well,
they pitched well,” Bochy said. “They played a
good ballgame today. They certainly outplayed
Kenta Maeda, who did not pitch on Thursday
against the Giants, is scheduled to start Sunday.
The 24-year-old right-hander was 14-7 with a
1.53 ERA for Hiroshima in 2012, and led the
league in wins, strikeouts and ERA.
Tanaka, who was heavily scouted on
Thursday, is lined up to start the WBC title game
on Tuesday. The 24-year-old right-hander led the
Japanese Pacific League with 19 wins and a 1.27
ERA in 2011, and followed that with a 10-4
record and a 1.87 ERA in 2012 for Rakuten.
There already is talk that his contract could be
posted for MLB teams to bid on by next winter.
Excellent pitching is nothing new from Team
Japan, who won the last two classics in San
Diego and Los Angeles behind Daisuke
Matsuzaka and Yu Darvish, both of whom later
landed big contracts from big league teams.
But the current Team Japan differs in two
areas from its championship predecessors: The
only player with any major league experience is
37-year-old infielder Kaz Matsui. And while
Japan’s WBC numbers have been solid so far,
offense could be a problem when facing staffs of
the Team USA and the Dominican Republic.
“Yes, of course it would be more meaningful
(to win a third title without MLB players),”
Yamamoto said. “You see these guys growing
with more confidence, so I think this is motivat-
ing these kids right now.
“We’re not worried too much about who’s
coming up (in San Francisco),” he said. “We try
to stay focused on our team.”
Japan tops Giants
PHOENIX — Randy Wells hopes that
maybe, just maybe, this will be the year that
everything falls into place.
Injury and inconsistency have plagued the
30-year-old right-hander during his career,
which up until 2013 primarily had been with
the Chicago Cubs.
Now with the Texas Rangers, he is making a
bid for the No. 5 spot in their rotation.
On Thursday, he had the team’s longest out-
ing of the spring, giving up a run on three hits
in five innings of a 6-2 victory over the
Oakland Athletics.
Wells struck out four, walked four, hit a bat-
ter and gave up a solo home run to Josh
Reddick in the fifth inning.
Wells also escaped a pair of jams, leaving the
bases loaded in the second and fourth inning —
retiring Scott Sizemore for the final out on both
Wells’ best season came in 2009, when he
was 12-10 for the Cubs. He is 28-32 in 86
career starts. In 2012, he was 1-2 in 11 appear-
ances (four starts) in 2012, and had nine starts
for Triple-A Iowa.
In July, his season came to a close when he
had surgery to remove bone spurs from his
Thursday marked his fourth start of the
spring. He ERA dipped from 5.63 to 4.15.
“He kept the ball down much better today,”
said Rangers manager Ron Washington. “He
got into some trouble, but he was able to get out
of it.
“He had a good changeup,” Washington said.
“He is the first guy to go five innings for us.”
Wells got some help from the top of his bat-
ting order in the early going.
Leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler and No. 2 Elvis
Andrus both reached base in the first inning —
on an error and a single — and scored on sac-
rifice flies by Lance Berkman and Adrian
In the third inning, Kinsler drove in a run
with a double and scored on a double by
Kinsler, whose leadoff role was the subject of
much debate by Rangers fans last season, went
from first to third on Andrus’ single to left when
he caught A’s left fielder Yoenis Cespedes off
“Ian saw that (Cespedes) was being too lack-
adaisical, so he took that extra base,”
Washington said. “We need to be running the
bases, heads-up. You try to take advantage of
the things you see.”
Right-hander Dan Straily, one of the Oakland
minor league pitchers of the year in 2012, made
his fourth start of the spring and had mixed
In three innings, he gave up four runs — two
earned — on three hits, walked one and struck
out three.
“He was a little inconsistent,” said A’s man-
ager Bob Melvin. “He was behind people when
he normally isn’t, but he did throw some quali-
ty pitches.”
NOTES: Texas INF Jurickson Profar was to
leave camp Thursday morning and join the
Netherlands in its preparation for its World
Baseball Classic semifinal on Monday in San
Francisco. ... RHP Derek Lowe is due to make
his debut for the Rangers on Friday against the
Giants in Scottsdale. His target is two innings.
... INF Jeff Baker increased his hitting streak to
eight games and is hitting .528 overall. ...
Oakland INF Jemile Weeks played in his first
game since March 1 (bruised shoulder), going
hitless as a PH-DH in two at-bats. He likely
will start at 2B against Arizona on Friday in
Scottsdale. ... The A’s had a five-game home
winning streak come to an end.

Agent Carl Poston said in a phone interview that Woodson spent
all day Wednesday in sessions with the Super Bowl runner-up
49ers and was happy with the time he spent around the organiza-
tion. He left the Bay Area early Thursday, Poston said.
“He enjoyed the visit and I think they
enjoyed him,” Poston said. “I think it went
very well, but I understand they have some
people in. It just depends on which way they
want to go. I’m just waiting for them to get
back to me.”
The 36-year-old Woodson was released by
the Packers on Feb. 15 in a salary-cap move.
He could fill a need in the secondary after
San Francisco lost safety Dashon Goldson
on Wednesday when he signed a $41.25 mil-
lion, five-year contract with the Tampa Bay
Woodson’s Green Bay team lost at San Francisco in the NFC
divisional playoffs, and the 49ers went on to reach their first Super
Bowl in 18 years. They lost 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens on Feb.
3 in New Orleans.
For now, Poston will begin scheduling meetings for Woodson
with other teams as he waits to hear from San Francisco’s front
“We are working on them as we speak, nothing firm,” Poston
said. He didn’t want to guess as to which teams Woodson might
visit next.
Former Lions safety Louis Delmas and cornerback Nnamdi
Asomugha, released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, were
reportedly scheduled for visits with the 49ers on Thursday. Agents
for each player didn’t respond to multiple messages, and the 49ers
aren’t confirming players who meet with team officials.
No move yet from the
49ers to sign Woodson
MIAMI — Horns honked, percussion pulsed and school kids
squealed. Miami can make quite a din when the Dominicans
The visiting team on the scoreboard, the Dominican Republic
made itself at home by beating the United States 3-1 Thursday
night to earn a berth in the final round of the World Baseball
Pinch-hitter Erick Aybar singled home the go-ahead run in the
ninth for the Dominicans, who improved to 5-0. They’re assured
of a spot in the semifinals beginning Sunday in San Francisco,
where two-time defending champion Japan and the Netherlands
have already advanced.
The United States must now play Puerto Rico on Friday
night, with the winner earning a trip to San Francisco and the
loser being eliminated.
Playing the U.S. team for the first time ever in the WBC, the
Dominicans drew raucous support all night, especially in a
noisy ninth.
With the score 1-all, Nelson Cruz led off with a double
against Craig Kimbrel (0-1), then took third on a groundout.
Aybar singled sharply and ran to first with his index finger
raised as his teammates poured out of the dugout to greet Cruz
crossing the plate.
Until Aybar’s hit, the Dominicans were 0 for 7 with runners
in scoring position.
Aybar stole second and scored on a two-out single by Jose
Former Miami Marlin Hanley Ramirez silenced jeers from the
crowd with a home run in the second inning for the other
Dominican run.
Pedro Strop (3-0) pitched a scoreless eighth. Fernando Rodney,
the fifth Dominican pitcher, followed with a perfect ninth to com-
plete a six-hitter for his fourth save. He has yet to allow a hit in 4
1-3 innings.
With the final out, several teammates joined Rodney in his
familiar arrow-shooting ritual.
The retractable roof was closed, which reinforced the sound of
the noisemakers favored by Dominican spectators. Their racket
more than matched the cheers of U.S. fans in the crowd of 34,366.
There was plenty of flag-waving, even by the players. During
the game someone gave the Americans a U.S. flag to hang in their
But the U.S. team was without slugger David Wright, scratched
shortly before the game because of sore ribs.
Both starting pitchers benefited from umpire Angel
Hernandez’s large strike zone, and they cooled off two teams that
came into the game batting over .300.
R.A. Dickey, the NL Cy Young Award winner last year, gave up
one run and struck out four in five innings. Minnesota Twins
right-hander Samuel Deduno allowed one run and struck out
seven, mostly on curves, in four innings for the Dominican
D.R. advances to WBC semis

The Atlanta Falcons replaced Michael
Turner with another proven, productive
running back.
Steven Jackson, the top running back in
free agency, agreed to a three-year, $12
million deal with the Falcons on Thursday.
Also getting new deals were backup
quarterback Matt Cassel in Minnesota,
pass rusher Cliff Avril in Seattle and cor-
nerback Keenan Lewis in New Orleans.
The New York Giants signed defensive
backs Ryan Mundy and Aaron Ross.
And the Houston Texans were rolling
out the red carpet to make their pitch to
safety Ed Reed.
Day 3 of the NFL’s free agency frenzy
was highlighted by the 30-year-old
Jackson moving on from St. Louis after
his eighth straight 1,000-yard season.
“I think this is a very big signing for us,”
Falcons general manager Thomas
Dimitroff told The Associated Press. “It
continues to bolster our offensive firepow-
er. It gives us not only strength, power in
running ability but also the versatility to
catch out of the backfield, which is a very
important part of this offense.”
Jackson would have earned $7 million
with the Rams in 2013 before he opted out
of his contract to become a free agent. His
10,135 yards rushing for his career are the
most of any active player.
The Falcons released Turner, defensive
end John Abraham and cornerback Dunta
Robinson on March 1. Turner had 800
yards rushing last season, his low total in
his five seasons in Atlanta.
Jackson averaged 4.1 yards per carry
with the Rams and gives Falcons quarter-
back Matt Ryan another receiver. Jackson
had at least 38 catches in each of his last
eight seasons in St. Louis.
“We’re hoping he has his best years
ahead of him, there’s no question about
that,” Dimitroff said. “We think he still has
much fuel in the tank and I know that he
believes that.”
The Broncos have gone on a spending
spree for the second straight spring and on
Thursday, Wes Welker, among the top
prizes in this year’s free agent class, was
welcomed to town. He said that while he
was sad to leave Tom Brady in New
England, he was thrilled to join Peyton
Manning in Denver.
The most productive receiver in the
league over the past six seasons, Welker
said he’s also eager to team up with young
1,000-yard receivers Demaryius Thomas
and Eric Decker to give the Broncos the
“Three Amigos” Version 2.0.
“I think they were another big part of
me wanting to come here,” Welker said.
“They did a great job last year and hope-
fully I can just come in and try to help
Welker signed a two-year, $12 million
deal in Denver after spurning the Patriots’
offer of $10 million over two years.
Also introduced at the Broncos head-
quarters Thursday was right guard Louis
Vasquez, who signed a four-year, $23.5
million contract, the largest of Denver’s
seven signings so far, a number that’s sur-
prised some seeing as how they went 13-3
last season.
“We accomplished a lot, and we’re try-
ing to accomplish more,” Broncos coach
John Fox said.
And anyone who thought Broncos quar-
terback-turned-boss John Elway would
stand pat after a 13-3 season: “They don’t
know John Elway,” said former Bronco
safety John Lynch.
“I love it,” Lynch said. “They’re in it to
win it. I think they’re doing it prudently,
too. Welker was a bargain.”
Fox cautioned that it’s still mid-March
and while some dollars are guaranteed,
results aren’t.

Quentin Bellon and Landers Ngirchemat gave
the Dons the team win. Jonathon Lui put the
exclamation point on a 5-2 Dons’ win with his
three-set win at No. 4 singles.
“They know they want to stay in second
place right now,” said Aragon coach Dave
Owdom. “The amazing thing about these guys
is their mental toughness.”
That was especially on display in the No. 1
doubles match, where Aragon’s Bellon and
Ngirchemat rallied from losing 6-0 in the first
set to pull out the win over Carlmont’s Ben
Knoot and Kevin Hutchaleelaha. The Aragon
duo won the second set 7-5 and needed a
third-set tiebreaker to pull out the win, 7-3.
“Last year, Carlmont beat us. We wanted to
get revenge,” Bellon said. “We didn’t play
well (in that first set). … I guess we felt the
pressure. But we started to hit better. Just get
the ball in play. Play aggressive and don’t play
Aragon had a chance to put away the match
earlier, with Ngirchemat serving for the win at
5-4. The Dons fell behind 15-40, but a pair of
big serves by Ngirchemat sent the game to
deuce. Ngirchemat appeared to secure the win
with a booming serve into the corner for an
ace. Knoot appeared headed to the net for the
post-match handshake but, his partner,
Hutchleelaha, signaled the serve out. To his
credit, Hutchaleelaha made his call right
away. The call stood and Ngirchemat went on
to be broken to tie the set at 5. Knoot and
Hutchleelaha went on to take the next game
and hold a 6-5 lead, but Bellon held serve to
force the tiebreaker.
“When we lost that point, I wanted to get
back at them,” Ngirchemat said.
In the tiebreaker, Aragon jumped out to a 5-
2 lead and eventually built a 6-3 advantage in
the race to seven points. Ngirchemat again
served on match point and this time he would
not be denied. As he smoked an ace past
Carlmont to clinch the match and give the
Dons the win, Ngirchemat facetiously asked,
“Was that in?”
“The point we won (to win the match) was
the exact same shot — into the corner,”
Ngirchemat said.
While the No. 1 doubles match may have
been the most exciting, the No. 1 singles
match featured two of the best players in the
PAL and Carlmont’s Pang proved there is a
pretty big gap between him and the rest of the
league. Aragon’s Devon Hughes, arguably
one of the top four players in the league, did-
n’t stand much of a chance against Pang, tak-
ing just one game off him and lost 6-0, 6-1.
“I just try to make the best of it,” Hughes
said. “It’s fun to come out and play someone
that great. I just give it my best and (try to)
learn from it. … (But) it sucks to lose.”
What he learned is that Pang just appears to
get better and better as the years progress.
Pang stood about 5-7, 5-8 as a freshman. Now
he’s 6-6 and as he has grown, so has his game.
This year, he’s working on his net game. So
far, the results have been pretty good.
“I’m trying to work on getting to the net a
little quicker,” Pang said, who is also the
defending PAL singles champion. “I work on
things in practice and try to bring it to my
matches. I’m trying to shorten up the points.”
Carlmont’s Corey Pang wasn’t pushed much in a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 1 singles. Pang is the
defending PAL singles champion and is the best singles player in the PAL again this season.

Reynick said. “But not a lot of time for some-
one going into the Bay.”
At least the Cherokees have some potential
offense to take some of the pressure off an
inexperienced pitcher. Mikayla Wilkes returns
at third base as the reigning Ocean Division
Player of the Year. Joining her are senior
catcher Ashley Killmon and senior center
fielder Hannah Singh. Killmon was an All-
Ocean Division second-team selection, while
Singh earned honorable mention. All three are
four-year varsity players and have been plenty
battled tested having been an Ocean Division
heavyweight for a number of years.
Reynick, however, knows there is a big leap
in competition from the Ocean to the Bay and
knows the Cherokees will have to prove they
“We’re the newcomer so we have to go earn
everything we can get. We have to fight and
scratch and see where end up,” Reynick said.
“But our goal is to not finish at the bottom. We
wouldn’t have volunteered to go up if we were
going to fight for the seventh or eighth spot.”
It’s going to be hard for Sequoia — or any-
one else for that matter — to take the Bay
Division crown from defending champion
Carlmont. The Scots were loaded last year,
going 11-1 in Bay play and 24-4 overall,
advancing to the Central Coast Section cham-
pionship game. The Scots have eight returners
from that squad, including arguably the best
pitcher in the entire PAL in Rebecca Faulkner,
and with another year of experience under
their belts are the odds-on favorites to win a
league title again. The Scots are already 5-1
this season, playing one of the toughest pre-
season schedules in the league. Christy
Peterson, Gabby Pons, Danielle Giuliacci
were all All-Bay second-team selections last
season and are only juniors.
Chasing the Scots, as has been the case for
the last several years, is Hillsdale, which has
struggled a bit to open the season at 2-3. The
Knights return player of the year candidate in
Courtney Tyler and sophomore Sharona
Mataele was a second-team All-PAL selection
last year. As with all softball teams, questions
in the pitcher’s circle will always be a con-
Capuchino and Burlingame are both off to
slow starts, combining to win only two games
thus far in the preseason. But the Mustangs
won a CCS title two years ago and advanced
to the semifinals last year. Expect longtime
coach Todd Grammatico to have his team pre-
pared for the rigors of Bay Division play. The
Panthers are led by Kristin Chaney, an all-
league, second-team selection last year; Nicki
Lunghi, a senior shortstop; and Dana
Half Moon Bay always seems to factor into
the playoff mix, while Aragon and Terra Nova
both seems to be in rebuilding mode this sea-
In the Ocean Division, Woodside appears to
be the team to beat. The Wildcats could easily
be in the Cherokees’ shoes as Woodside and
Sequoia have battled for the Ocean Division
title for the last several years. With Sequoia
moved into the Bay, the target should be
squarely on the Wildcats.
They have a pair of first-team all-Ocean
selections from last season — juniors
Madison Diamos and Christina Patton, who is
a pitcher-of-the-year candidate — returning
this season, and Allie Knapp was a second-
team selection last year and returns for her
junior season.
After starting the year 0-3, including a 9-0
loss to Carlmont in the season opener, the
Wildcats are currently riding a seven-game
winning streak.
Mills and Menlo-Atherton should be the
two teams that will push Woodside the hard-
est. The Vikings have a couple of key return-
ers in Luci Stanley and Adrian Coulter and are
off to a 4-3 start. M-A has been roughed up
during the preseason, but should have the
pieces necessary to compete in the Ocean
The rest of the division — San Mateo,
South City, El Camino and Jefferson — all
appear to be in for long seasons. The north
part of San Mateo County has been pretty bare
the last several years, although South City

Broncos safety Carter
facing Vegas cheating case
LAS VEGAS — Denver Broncos safety
Quinton Carter is facing felony charges in
Nevada alleging that he cheated at a craps
game last weekend at a Las Vegas-area casino,
authorities said Thursday.
Carter, 24, was arrested late Saturday at the
Texas Station casino in North Las Vegas.
Security officials reported he was videotaped
adding a $5 chip to three bets after the dice
already rolled, according to a police report.
Carter denied wrongdoing when police
Carter faces three counts of committing a
fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, a
felony in Nevada that carries a possible sen-
tence of one to six years in prison and a
$10,000 fine. He provided a North Las Vegas
address when he was booked at the Clark
County jail in Las Vegas and released with a
Monday court date.
Sports brief
By Christy Lemire
Harmony Korine seems to
want it both ways, all day,
with “Spring Breakers,” his
super-stylized descent into a
sunbaked hell where bikini-
clad, gun-toting college babes
serve as our guides.
As writer and director,
Korine wants us to be appalled
and aroused, hypnotized and
titillated. He wants to satirize
the debauchery of girls gone
wild while simultaneously
reveling in it. And damned if
he doesn’t pull it off.
This is the rare movie that I
actually found myself liking
more the longer I spent away
from it and the more I thought
about it — mainly because I
couldn’t stop thinking about
it. In the moment, I found it
numbingly repetitive, even
boring at times: an obvious
juxtaposition of sex and vio-
lence, of dreamlike aesthetics

LOS ANGELES — Elle Fanning does
some incredible work as a teenager caught up
in the anti-nukes activism of 1960s London in
the new coming-of age drama “Ginger &
This latest, greatest performance is part of
a career she’s carved out for herself at only
age 14, with previous impressive roles in
films including “The Curious Case of
Benjamin Button,” “Super 8” and
“Somewhere.” (Must be in the DNA: Her
older sister, Dakota Fanning, is also talented
and experienced well beyond her 19 years
with an eclectic mix of films ranging from
“War of the Worlds” and the “Twilight”
movies to “Hounddog” and “The
So in a year in which “Beasts of the
Southern Wild” star Quvenzhane Wallis
became the youngest-ever best-actress nomi-
nee at the Academy Awards at only 9, here’s
a look at five great child actresses:
Shirley Temple:
The original. What precocious little girl
hasn’t watched Temple singing and dancing
to “On the Good Ship Lollipop” and thought
to herself: “That looks like fun — I want to
do that too”? Of course, we all couldn’t do it
because she had that rare “thing” — that
spark, that zest, that glow. She also worked
her butt off perfecting her craft at a very
young age — she started
dancing and appearing in
short films at 3 and mak-
ing features at 5 — but
she made childlike charm
and enthusiasm look
effortless. By 6, she’d
already won an Academy
Award — a special juve-
nile honor, but still. She
then went on to make
dozens of films over a three-decade career
and remains arguably the greatest child star
ever. What has your kid done today?
Elizabeth Taylor:
In her early, family-friendly films such as
“Lassie Come Home” and especially
“National Velvet,” Taylor
had a startling and mature
beauty for someone her
age. Something about her
aura radiated a grace and
sophistication well beyond
her years. Those mesmer-
izing eyes, that luxurious
dark hair and flawless
skin. It was as if she never
went through the sort of
awkward pre-adolescent
stage the rest of us endured. She made her
first film, “There’s One Born Every Minute,”
at age 10. You guys know what happened
from there: triumph, heartache, three
Academy Awards, multiple marriage, super-
Jodie Foster:
As she said in her rambling speech at this
year’s Golden Globes, she’s been in the pub-
lic eye since age 3. Now at
50, the two-time Oscar
winner is a great example
of remaining strong and
vital throughout the transi-
tion from child stardom to
adulthood. Foster had con-
fidence and swagger from
her earliest days — it’s
evident even in something
silly like a guest appear-
ance on “The Partridge Family.” In 1976
alone, in a demonstration of her great range,
she played two very different kinds of kids:
Iris, the world-weary prostitute, opposite
Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant
and disturbing “Taxi Driver,” and Annabel,
the quick-witted tomboy who finds she’s mag-
ically switched bodies with her mother in the
Disney comedy “Freaky Friday.”
Kirsten Dunst:
She started modeling and appearing in com-
mercials when she was only a few years old,
but her breakout role at age 12 was playing
the adorably creepy vampire Claudia opposite
Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in “Interview With
the Vampire.” Great choices from there have
included Sofia Coppola’s “The Virgin
Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette,” Michel
Gondry’s dreamlike “Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind” and the kitschy cheerleader
comedy “Bring It On.”
Playing Mary-Jane in the
“Spider-Man” trilogy
probably didn’t hurt. But
she was excellent — and
deserved an Oscar nomi-
nation — for her haunting
work as a depressed bride
in Lars Von Trier’s
“Melancholia.” (She also
has a movie opening this
weekend, the sci-fi romance “Upside Down.”)
Abigail Breslin:
She was one of the youngest-ever Oscar
nominees at age 10 for her charming, vulnera-
ble and ultimately inspiring
performance as awkward
pageant contestant Olive in
the crowd-pleasing indie
“Little Miss Sunshine.” But
she made an impression
even earlier than that when
she made her film debut at
just 5 in M. Night
Shyamalan’s “Signs.” Her
varied work has ranged
from the star-studded romantic comedy
“Definitely, Maybe” to the heart-tugging “My
Sister’s Keeper” to the horror comedy
“Zombieland” to the musical drama “Janie
Jones,” which showed off her singing and gui-
tar-playing talents. (Like Fanning and Dunst,
Breslin has a new movie in theaters this week-
end, too: the thriller “The Call.”) And she’s only
16 now — it’s all out there in front of her.

the Florida coast with a robbery, the young
women descend farther into the criminal
underworld than intended.
The movie has been highly anticipated
thanks to a widely viewed online trailer show-
ing former Disney starlets transformed into
heavily armed, lightly clad mean girls bent on
having a good time at all costs.
As the venue for a domestic premiere, the
promoters chose South by Southwest, held in
the college town of Austin.
Asked whether the whole affair should be
read as satire, Korine said, “I more want you
to have a physical experience.”
And the movie?
“It does have its cake and eat it too,” said
James Franco, the wide-ranging actor best
known as a villain in the Spider-Man series
and starring as a cornrow-headed thug in
“Spring Breakers.”
The film also features Selena Gomez, the
20-year-old pop music singer known as Justin
Bieber’s ex-girlfriend and for her role on
Disney’s now defunct “Wizards of Waverly
When the lights went down, Korine’s fever
dream of gunplay, body shots and girls gone
wild found a receptive audience.
In a Q-and-A session, an audience member
asked Korine about the open-ended final
“I end it there because I want you to dream
on it,” he said, adding, “Why do you want to
be told everything all the time?”

within a nightmare scenario. And it is all of
those things. But it stuck with me, and it made
me appreciate the genius of Korine’s
There is a great deal of genuine artistry in
this film, which is the most polished and
mainstream to date from the maker of indies
like “Trash Humpers.” The exquisite images,
which range from intimately gritty to eerily
glowing, come from Belgian cinematographer
Benoit Debie, and Cliff Martinez (“Drive”)
complements them with a mesmerizing score.
But “Spring Breakers” is also provocative in
various ways — totally unsurprising from the
guy who wrote Larry Clark’s “Kids” at age 19
— depending on the viewer. In super slo-mo,
as beer-soaked party girls cavort on the beach
to the thump of electronic dance music, is that
how it actually feels in the middle of it? Or is
that the frightening extreme adults imagine
when they dare to ponder what their kids are
up to each March?
The corruption of formerly squeaky-clean
Disney Channel superstars Selena Gomez and
Vanessa Hudgens may be Korine’s
cleverest trick of
all: They get to
show some range,
we get to gawk.
But James Franco
steals the whole
movie away when
he arrives about
halfway through as
a cornrowed,
wanna-be gangster
rapper named Alien
(pronounced a-
LEEN). It’s a showy,
wonderfully weird per-
formance, but Franco
also finds the vulnerabil-
ity beneath the bravado.
And in playing a compli-
cated, flawed ringleader,
he’s much more effective
here than he was in “Oz the
Great and Powerful.”
The young women of
“Spring Breakers” have their
own treacherous road to fol-
low. The four longtime
friends (Gomez, Hudgens,
Ashley Benson of “Pretty Little Liars” and
Rachel Korine, the director’s wife) long
to escape the drudgery of their dreary
college life. Spring break in Florida
beckons, and after a quick-and-
dirty, coked-up diner robbery —
which three of the girls pull off
without the help of Gomez’s
character, the
Faith —
t h e y ’ r e
h e a d e d
Clearly these
women already
were headed for trou-
ble long before they got in
the car; they’re essentially
wild animals in hot pink nail pol-
ish. They just needed a little shove,
which the promise of non-stop par-
tying provides. When they get bust-
ed for narcotics possession — and the
flashy Alien shows up to bail them
out — their fates are sealed. He talks
a lot of trash, jumping up and down
on his cash-covered bed with a
machine gun in each hand, flash-
ing a devious smile through a glittering grill.
But he’s also lonely and needy, and in these
girls — or at least in a couple of them — he
thinks he’s found his soul mates.
A scene in which Korine prominently (and
effectively) uses Britney Spears’ “Everytime”
is a microcosm of the rest of the film, and its
mixture of playfulness and danger. Alien sits
down at his oh-so tasteful poolside piano and
seems to expose himself emotionally by per-
forming the haunting, plaintive ballad; Korine
then plays the actual song over images of
Alien’s newfound harem bouncing in bikinis
and girly-pink ski masks, hoisting rifles in the
air and preparing to go on a crime spree. But
a surprising amount of suspense reveals itself
within the ridiculousness of it all; that’s what
makes “Spring Breakers” so hard to shake.
They never feel like real people, these cur-
vaceous banditas, but they are the future of
America, and this might be the last, best time
of their lives. We’re all screwed, Korine seems
to be saying. It’s very sad — but also kinda

PepsiCo Inc. announced it would
stop putting an obscure vegetable
oil in its Gatorade right before the
Super Bowl, one of the loudest
cheers came from a high school stu-
dent who had made it her mission to
get rid of the ingredient.
“I was like, ‘Whoa,”’ said Sarah
Kavanagh, a 16-year-old from
Hattiesburg, Miss., who wanted to
know how an oil that contains a
chemical also found in flame retar-
dants got into her favorite sports
drink. After she posted a petition on asking Pepsi to remove
it, more than 200,000 people
“I just wanted to make sure it was
something that I could drink,” said
the teen.
From oil in Gatorade to the
amount of caffeine and other stimu-
lants in energy drinks and the so-
called “pink slime” found in beef,
previously unnoticed ingredients
are coming under scrutiny as health-
conscious consumers demand more
information about what they eat and
drink, and sometimes go public via
social networking and the Internet.
So how does some of this stuff get
into our food?
The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration reviews and
approves most additives to food or
drinks before they hit the market-
place. But others can bypass that
process if they are deemed “gener-
ally recognized as safe” by the gov-
ernment or food companies and the
experts they hire.
Take the story of Gatorade.
Developed in 1965 at the
University of Florida to help foot-
ball players keep hydrated in the
heat, Gatorade was an immediate
hit. By 1969, a private company
acquired rights to market the drink
and started adding brominated veg-
etable oil to distribute flavor evenly
in a new orange version.
In those days, the oil was includ-
ed in a list of additives, preserva-
tives and chemicals that the govern-
ment calls “generally recognized as
safe.” The “GRAS” designation
took root more than a half-century
ago as a way to help the processed
food industry avoid lengthy reviews
for ingredients that were consid-
ered, by qualified experts, to be safe
under conditions of intended use.
Then, the list included ingredients
such as vitamin A and citric acid —
about 180 in all.
Today, as food scientists create
more and more new ingredients to
add health benefits or help food stay
fresh, there are at least 4,650 of
these “generally recognized as safe”
ingredients, according to the non-
partisan Pew Charitable Trusts. The
bulk of them, at least 3,000, were
determined GRAS by food manu-
facturers or trade associations, and
their expert scientists.
But no one knows exactly how
many “GRAS” ingredients are in
products because manufacturers are
not required to notify the FDA
before adding them.
BVO was on the “safe” list when
Stokely-Van Camp Inc. developed
orange-flavored Gatorade in 1969.
The FDA notes that BVO contains
far less bromine than flame retar-
dants and is considered safe for use
in limited quantities in fruit-fla-
vored drinks. It is used to emulsify
citrus oil in fruit-flavored beverages
including Mountain Dew, Fanta and
The ingredient, which is banned
as an additive in Japan and the
European Union, will remain in
orange Gatorade through this
spring, said spokeswoman Molly
Carter of PepsiCo, which now owns
Gatorade. She added that the deci-
sion to drop it was sparked by con-
sumer rumblings over the past year,
not Kavanagh’s petition specifically.
“While our products are safe, we
are making this change because we
know that some consumers have a
negative perception of BVO in
Gatorade,” Carter said in a state-
In 1958, Congress amended the
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic
Act to establish the “generally rec-
ognized as safe” exemption. In the
following years, FDA added ingre-
dients to its “safe” list after review-
ing the supporting science.
However, that proved a time-con-
suming process, so in 1997 FDA
changed its procedures to allow
food companies to voluntarily noti-
fy the agency of ingredients they
consider safe by submitting pub-
lished research and expert opinion.
Not all do. But since 1997, the FDA
has received 451 such notifications,
and the agency disagreed with the
science in 17 cases.
Industry associations say the
process saves the government
money and supports innovation by
reducing red tape. Representatives
also say manufacturers have every
incentive to make their products
However, even if the FDA dis-
agrees with the supporting science,
current law provides no clear
recourse to stop companies from
adding these GRAS ingredients to
food products.
That was the case with a hemp
seed ingredient that biologist
Vyacheslav Dushenkov notified
FDA about in 1999, when he
worked for a now-defunct company
that wanted to sell hempseed oil and
The FDA rejected his scientific
work in 2000, saying Dushenkov’s
anecdotal and historical examples
of the medicinal use of hemp did
not prove it was safe for use in food,
but Los Angeles-based Chronic Ice
Tea now cites Dushenkov’s research
in a blog advertising drinks made
with hempseed powder.
“We were just quoting it to bring
awareness to all the scientific work
that has already gone on around
hemp safety,” said Michael Stweart,
the company’s chief operating offi-
cer who says hempseed ingredients
have health benefits similar to those
of fish oil.
If FDA suspects an ingredient
deemed “safe” is actually harmful,
the government can take action after
a product hits the market, but it does
not track how often that has hap-
pened. In one case, in 2010, the
agency issued warning letters to
four makers of popular caffeinated
alcoholic drinks, declaring caffeine
unsafe in alcoholic beverages.
Under threat of product seizure, the
companies stopped making the
Brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade?
From oil in Gatorade to the amount of caffeine and other stimulants in energy drinks and the so-called ‘pink
slime’found in beef,previously unnoticed ingredients are coming under scrutiny as health-conscious consumers

that helped bring the project to life as a state-

“It was not always easy to work with the
city. It took lots of effort and lots of time,”
Fancher said yesterday.
He praised, however, the city’s profession-
alism in bringing the project to life and the
countless residents who participated in the
Citizens Advisory Committee that helped
develop San Mateo’s Rail Corridor Plan.
Current Councilman Jack Matthews served
on that committee and was also on the
Planning Commission when the developer
was seeking approvals for the transit-oriented
San Mateo leads the Bay Area in looking to
accommodate future growth, Matthews said
“This is a smart development that takes
advantage of mass transit where people can
walk and live near work,” Matthews said.
The city also wanted to add more open
space to the project that will be an asset to the
entire community, he said.
“We wanted a park as big as Central
Park and I think we got it,” Matthews said
about the 12-acre Paddock Park that was
dedicated yesterday.
Matthews said the new neighborhood will
also be diverse as it will have a mix of afford-
able housing, about 68 units.
“This is [transit-oriented development] at its
finest,” Deputy Mayor Robert Ross said about
the high-density project.
Saturday, a welcome center will open
between noon and 4 p.m. that will be open
daily starting next week.
Prices for the first batch of homes to be
completed range from about $715,000 to
$915,000. Units range from two bedrooms up
to four bedrooms at the Amelia that will also
feature garage space for two vehicles.
The private Nueva School will also open a
high school campus on the property.
When completed, Bay Meadows will be the
largest transit-oriented development in the
Phase 1 of the Bay Meadows project was
officially completed in 2011 with the con-
struction of the new Kaiser Medical Center
and includes housing, offices and retail space
featuring a Whole Foods market.
In phase 2, Class A office space for rent, in
five buildings, will range from 95,000 square
feet to 185,000 square feet. The development
sits between the Hillsdale and Hayward Park
Caltrain stations.

SANTA CRUZ — A former soldier who
killed two Santa Cruz police detectives last
month was not prosecuted on two rape
charges dating back to 2006 because there
was not enough evidence, an Army
spokesman said Thursday.
DNA evidence failed to link victims to
Jeremy Goulet, who gunned down the two
detectives and was killed in a shootout on
Feb. 26, said spokesman Lt. Col. S. Justin
Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta
and members of Congress have demanded
investigations into why the military let Goulet
leave the Army with an other-than-honorable
discharge rather than face rape charges.
Platts said that prosecutors in Honolulu
declined to charge Goulet with a count of rape
in April 2006 because fingerprints and DNA
taken from rape kits did not tie Goulet to the
In that case, an Army 1st lieutenant said a
man entered her off-base apartment through
an open window and raped her while she was
sleeping on her couch, Platts said. The woman
had been drinking and couldn’t identify
Goulet as her attacker, he said.
Dave Koga, a spokesman for the Honolulu
prosecutor’s office, said Thursday that their
database showed no actions in regards to
Goulet. He said a record would exist if
Honolulu police had brought a case that pros-
ecutors declined.
Platts said he could not provide further
comment on the discrepancy between the two
Army officials declined to prosecute a sec-
ond rape charge in July 2006 because
“throughout the investigation, the victim was
unable to identify Goulet as her assailant” and
DNA testing excluded Goulet, said Platts.
In that case, an Army private told authori-
ties she was raped by a man she thought was
a warrant officer in an empty barracks room
when she was too intoxicated to consent.
Goulet was the staff duty officer at her bar-
racks that night, said Platts.
Honolulu attorney Donald Wilkerson, who
says he represented Goulet for both two rape
cases in 2006, said he dealt only with the
Army and didn’t remember any contact with
Honolulu police or the prosecuting attorney’s
office about Goulet.
Wilkerson declined to say whether Goulet
thought there were merits to either accusation.
“We wanted the rape charges dropped and
at some point, the Army became willing to
drop them if we agreed to the other-than-hon-
orable discharge,” Wilkerson said. “My argu-
ment to them was they didn’t have enough
(evidence) and that’s why I felt they should
drop it.”
Platts said that without evidence or a posi-
tive identification, the Army accepted
Goulet’s resignation in lieu of a court-martial
in January 2007.
Goulet’s father, 64-year-old Ronald Goulet,
told the Associated Press after the Santa Cruz
shootings that his son’s aspirations to be an
Army helicopter pilot were dashed by what he
saw as an unfair criminal prosecution in
Hawaii. He said Jeremy described himself as
the victim in the rape accusations.
“He said he had a detail and was put in
charge of the barracks for a week. He was on
duty doing that when this girl who was drunk
plopped herself in his lap and said she wanted
to have sex,” Ronald Goulet said. “He had
keys to a vacant room, and they went there
and had sex.”
The father reiterated the Army spokesman’s
statement, saying that when the rape charges
were dropped after DNA failed to link him to
the alleged crime, his son thought the case
should be dropped. But the prosecutor persist-
ed on other charges, and Goulet was released
from the Army with a general discharge.
Army: No evidence to prosecute police shooter
“We wanted the rape charges dropped and at some
point, the Army became willing to drop them if we agreed to the
other-than-honorable discharge. ... My argument to them was they
didn’t have enough (evidence) and that’s why I felt they should drop it.”
— Honolulu attorney Donald Wilkerson

about 20,000 such notices went out by
the March 15 deadline. This year, the
organization is estimating about 2,500.
In San Mateo County, many districts
aren’t planning to give notices to any
Don Dawson, who serves on the CTA
Board of Directors representing San
Mateo and Santa Clara counties,
described the drop as dramatic.
It fits with what the governor prom-
ised Proposition 30 would do, he said.
More stability in funding means dis-
tricts can plan better creating consisten-
cy for employees and students, Dawson
said. Proposition 30 is a combination of
personal income and sales tax increas-
In San Mateo County, a number of dis-
tricts are sending out notices to only one
of two employee groups. Temporary
employees are often first-year teachers
only offered a one-year contract. These
are also the individuals who are not yet
guaranteed a spot on next year’s teaching
roster. Certificated employees, which
most often refers to tenured employees,
will be spared for the most part.
A total of 8.3 certificated positions
may be reduced or eliminated next year
in the Redwood City Elementary School
District including two school nurses, 1.5
full-time equivalent intervention teach-
ers, 3.8 FTEs of outreach specialists and
a counselor, said district spokeswoman
Naomi Hunter. These are separate from
temporary teachers.
“We will not know whether these staff
will actually be released until we have
more certainty about our staffing needs
for 2013-14,” she said.
Last week, the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District Board of
Trustees approved sending notifications
to 22.96 full-time equivalent positions.
In the Sequoia Union High School
District, notices went out to six proba-
tionary teachers and 54 temporary teach-
ers, said Superintendent James Lianides.
The San Mateo Union High School
District will release 34 temporary teach-
ers, representing 21 FTEs, said
Superintendent Scott Laurence.
Laurence was unsure yet of how many
will return adding that decision will
depend on enrollment.
The Millbrae Elementary School
District will keep temporary teachers
through June but other certificated teach-
ers won’t be getting notices, said
Superintendent Linda Luna. No notices
are being sent out in the San Bruno Park
School District, said Superintendent
David Hutt.
In the Hillsborough City School
District, Superintendent Anthony Ranii
estimates it will not elect to bring back
two first-year teachers as the district has
people coming back from leave.
However, those employees could have
jobs in the fall if there are retirements
within the district, he said.
“These notices are to allow us the flex-
ibility we need to make informed choic-
es that benefit the district,” said Ranii.

aided if such a registry had been kept.
Councilman Mark Addiego said those
numbers were hard to hear.
Police worked with local hotels prior
to recommending the new rule.
Jim Maguire, general manager at the
Best Western Grosvenor in South San
Francisco, said he was surprised by the
“Basically, they’re asking us to do our
job,” said Maguire, who said it’s unfor-
tunate that not all hotels already have the
practice of obtaining basic information
when a person checks in.
Approval of the new rule came hours
after a couple arrested in South San
Francisco for allegedly prostituting four
women, including one underage girl,
pleaded not guilty to human trafficking
charges and waived their right to a
speedy prosecution.
Maria Carolina Jiminez and Sate
Stallone Jones, both 25 and of San
Francisco, were arrested at the La
Quinta Inn in South San Francisco after
being alerted by a clerk who’d under-
gone training about recognizing human
trafficking. A man later identified as
Jones reportedly dropped off two
women one night and two women the
next between Feb. 15 and Feb. 16.
Jiminez and Jones are charged with
one felony count which under a new sen-
tencing law passed by voters in
November could carry decades in prison
because a minor is allegedly involved.
Prior to the passage of Proposition 35,
the maximum term was between eight
and 12 years.
The women reportedly told police the
couple gave them illegal drugs to keep
them working all night and sometimes
deprived them of food. When the man
returned with a woman, identified as
Jiminez, to collect the four others, they
were arrested.
They remain in custody on $350,000
bail each.
Police are seeking a third suspect and
anyone with information is asked to con-
tact South San Francisco police at 877-

same months a year earlier. The gains
have topped 20 percent in the past four
months in year-over-year comparisons,
DataQuick said.
“Isn’t this Economics 101? Supply
and demand?” DataQuick President
John Walsh asked in a statement. “If
demand outstrips supply in a free mar-
ket, the price goes up.”
“Now, with a recovering economy,
prices still closer to the bottom than to
the top, with ultra-low mortgage interest
rates and tight supply, the stage is set for
price gains. This spring is going to be
interesting,” Walsh said.
There were continuing indications that
California’s housing market is recover-
ing from its five-year slump.
“Foreclosure activity is well below
peak levels reached in the last few years.
Financing with multiple mortgages is
low, and down payment sizes are stable,”
DataQuick said in a statement.
Sales in February shifted from low-
cost, distressed homes to mid-market
and higher properties, with the number
of homes selling for $500,000 or more
jumping by 27.7 percent, DataQuick
Foreclosures and short sales, those in
which the price was less than the amount
owed on the property, both were down
over January and there were a lot fewer
of them compared with February a year
Investors, as compared with first-time
homebuyers, accounted for a sizeable
chunk of the sales. Absentee buyers,
who mostly are investors, bought 28.2
percent of all Bay area homes.
That was an all-time high based on
DataQuick figures going back to 2000,
the company said.
In Southern California, homes sales
continued strong, with 15,945 sold —
the most for a February in the past six
The median sales price in Los Angeles
and five other counties was $320,000,
DataQuick reported Wednesday.

Newly elected Pope Francis I,Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina,leads a a mass with
cardinals at the Sistine Chapel, in a picture released by Osservatore Romano at the Vatican.
By Brian Murphy
VATICAN CITY — At gatherings of Latin
American bishops, then-Cardinal Jorge
Bergoglio was often a star speaker about eco-
nomic inequities in a profit-driven world. He
also has used the forums to warn fellow church
leaders about drifting from core Catholic val-
ues and teachings.
The twin messages are now expected to
frame the beginning of the papacy of Pope
Francis: Reinforcing the Vatican’s views on
issues such as birth control and women’s ordi-
nation that will disappoint reform-minded fol-
lowers, yet showing an activist streak that
could hearten others pushing for greater atten-
tion to problems that include poverty and inter-
national debt.
These broad ideological strokes — drawn
clearly over decades in the Argentine church
— will likely be accompanied by growing
nuances and initiatives demanded by the mod-
ern papacy that requires diplomatic skill, man-
agerial acumen and a degree of pastoral flair.
His emphasis on clerical simplicity and pop-
ulism, including efforts to keep divorced
Catholics and unmarried mothers in the
church’s fold, could raise alarms among
staunch conservatives about a reorientation of
Vatican priorities after eight years of strict
guidance under Benedict XVI, who spent most
of his Vatican career as the main doctrinal
Through lesser-known gestures and com-
ments in the past, the first Latin American pon-
tiff also has shown an inclination to expand
interfaith outreach to Islam and Judaism, and
efforts to further close the nearly 1,000-year
estrangement with the Orthodox churches.
Pope Francis’ views bind
simplicity with ‘complexity’
By John Heilprin
GENEVA — It helps solve one of the most
fundamental riddles of the universe: how the
Big Bang created something out of nothing
13.7 billion years ago.
In what could go down as one of the great
Eureka! moments in physics — and win
somebody the Nobel Prize — scientists said
Thursday that after a half-century quest, they
are confident they have found a Higgs boson,
the elusive subatomic speck sometimes called
the “God particle.”
The existence of the particle was theorized in
1964 by the British physicist Peter Higgs to
explain why matter has mass. Scientists believe
the particle acts like molasses or snow: When
other tiny basic building blocks pass through it,
they stick together, slow down and form atoms.
Scientists at CERN, the Geneva-based
European Organization for Nuclear Research,
announced in July that they had found some-
thing that looked like the Higgs boson, but
they weren’t certain, and they needed to go
through the data and rule out the possibility it
wasn’t something else.
On Thursday, they said they believe they got
it right.
“To me it is clear that we are dealing with a
Higgs boson, though we still have a long way
to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is,”
said Joe Incandela, a physicist who heads one
of the two main teams at CERN, each involv-
ing about 3,000 scientists.
Whether or not it was a Higgs boson had to
be demonstrated by how it interacts with other
particles and its quantum properties, CERN
said. The data “strongly indicates that it is a
Higgs boson,” it said.
Pentagon: Iranian plane
pursued U.S. spy drone
WASHINGTON — An Iranian fighter jet
approached a U.S. surveillance drone over the
Persian Gulf but broke off its pursuit after the
pilot of a U.S. escort plane radioed a verbal
warning, the Pentagon said Thursday.
Pentagon press secretary George Little said
the incident occurred Tuesday and that the
unarmed MQ-1 Predator surveillance drone as
well as two U.S. military escort planes
remained over international waters at all times.
Little said the drone was conducting a “rou-
tine classified” surveillance mission.
He said the Iranian F-4 plane came as close
as 16 miles to the drone before it departed.
Little initially said that a U.S. escort plane
discharged a flare to warn the Iranian pilot, but
he later retracted that statement, saying
instead that the Iranian plane broke off its pur-
suit after receiving a U.S. “verbal warning.”
Lt. Col. Wesley Miller, a Pentagon
spokesman, said he could not explain where
the Pentagon got the incorrect information
about a flare.
Physicists say they have
found the God particle
