Fund set up to cover family’s funeral expenses
Schools face
San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School
District plans for changes to meet growth
By Heather Murtagh
Dealing with growing enrollment will mean changes in the
San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District like adding
classrooms, offering limited bus services and tweaking atten-
dance boundaries.
Over the last five years, the district enrollment has grown
1,703 students from 10,079 to 11,782. And, with more devel-
opment in San Mateo and Foster City, those numbers are
expected to continue to increase over the next 10 years. More
students require more space and a few changes — both of
which are part of a larger enrollment management plan which
the district Board of Trustees recently approved.
“It’s a nice problem to have and it means we need to think
outside the box,” said Molly Barton, assistant superintendent

A vigil was held Friday afternoon for
the family of a single mom and her two
sons killed in an alleged drunk driving
accident March 2 and a fund has been set
up to cover the costs of their funeral.
Josefa Osorio Acevedo, 50, and her
sons Amado Osorio Acevedo, 23, and
Josue Osorio, 14, all of Daly City were
killed on the first Sunday of the month
when an allegedly intoxicated driver
tried to leave the scene of a separate
accident. The sudden deaths have come
with unexpected funeral costs for which
the Osorios family wasn’t prepared. To
help cover the costs, the family is hold-
ing an online fundraiser.
“They were very, very loved,” said
Karen Velasquez, niece of Josefa Osorio
Acevedo. “It’s left a dent in our family, a
The family, which had moved from El
Salvador about six years ago, was a
small but tight unit, said Velasquez.
Josefa Osorio Acevedo was a single
mother who had never been married. She
waited to move to the United States until
the family could come together.
Amado Osorio Acevedo worked as a
driver for Safeway.com to support the
family, said Velasquez. Josue Osorio was
a freshman at Westmoor High School,

But now the Redwood City sober liv-
ing house opened by Choices founder
Shirley LaMarr is the one facing change
as it looks for a new home where it can
hopefully expand the number of men
and women it helps stay clean, be pro-
ductive and — for many of them —
learn what it feels like to have a family.
The new location remains up in the air
but a March 23 sports memorabilia auc-
tion is set to help finance the impending
move. More important than the set spot,
perhaps, is LaMarr’s unwavering faith
that the perfect building will happen.
“I don’t know how but we’re not giv-
ing up,” LaMarr said, sitting at a dining
table inside The Centre. “Even if I have
to call Cirque du Soleil for a tent, we’re
going to continue.”
The walls of The Centre, which
opened its doors 18 months ago on
Broadway in Redwood City, is a testa-
ment to how far LaMarr has come her-
self and the enormous strides she’s made
the past 20 years helping others follow
the same path. Certificates from
Delancey Street, the San Francisco resi-
dential program that moved LaMarr
from a life of jail and addiction, hang on
one wall. Another has hundreds of letters
from jail and prison inmate alumni of
her programs hanging next to a shelf
holding a model schooner crafted from
garbage. A bulletin board full of photo-
graphs and thank you notes give current
residents proof of prior clients’ success
and a wooden sign sums up one of the
center’s philosophy: “Enter as strangers
— leave as friends.”
But make no mistake, LaMarr is a
force to be reckoned with and believes in
tough love along with the hugs and

Burlingame council discussing

Efforts to save a 41-year-old business in Burlingame could

council considers lowering the rent.
On Monday, the Burlingame City Council will consider
altering its lease with Sam’s Italian Sandwich Company at
1080 Howard Ave. to help keep the beloved shop open. The

The poem “Casey at Bat,” by Ernest
Lawrence Thayer (1863-1940), was first
published in the San Francisco Examiner
in 1888. In the poem, cocky baseball play-
er Casey purposely strikes out twice in the
9th inning, with confidence that he will hit
the last pitch. However, the last line of the
poem is “But there is no joy in Mudville
— mighty Casey has struck out.”

“Your Hit Parade” was a radio show from
1935 to 1955 that presented the top tunes
of the week every Saturday night.
Statisticians employed by the show deter-
mined the most popular songs by looking
at sheet music sales and the most-played
songs on jukeboxes.
Originally, floats in parades were decorat-
ed barges. Parade marchers on shore
pulled the barges along canals by rope.
That is why the decorated motor vehicles
in parades are called floats.
A root beer float is vanilla ice cream with
root beer. Vanilla ice cream with cola is
called a black cow. Ice cream with ginger
ale is called a Boston cooler.
Ginger has been used medicinally for
thousands for years. Eating ginger helps

Nearly everyone knows trees produce oxy-
gen, reduce carbon dioxide, regulate ground
temperatures and are visually appealing — but
they sometimes need a helping hand.
That’s where CityTrees comes in. The
Redwood City nonprofit was founded in May
2000 by Jane Taylor and Jack Stephens to pro-
mote and support urban forestry in Redwood
CityTrees has planted approximately 2,700
trees around Redwood City and the goal is to
get to 7,000. The Department of Public Works
assists CityTrees by picking the area that needs
trees as well as selecting the appropriate trees
to plant.
“The trees need to correlate with the environ-
ment they are in or else they will not survive,”
Stephens said.
Ironically, that is why there are not any red-
wood trees in Redwood City.
For CityTrees to plant and maintain trees in
the city, it relies on more than 2,000 volunteers
and money through grants, membership and
business sponsorship such as Oracle and San
Mateo Credit Union, said Dave Hyman, chair
of CityTrees.
Before anything gets started, CityTrees vol-
unteers canvas each assigned neighborhood for
a water agreement. The first year is always cru-
cial for a new tree to get a lot of water.
Neighbors will sign up for a water agreement
committing to taking care of that specific tree
on their property. If they disagree, “the city has
to come and water it with watering truck takes
which takes up more manpower,” Hyman said.
What exactly does a volunteer do? They will
generally start working at about 9 a.m. drilling
holes so that the ground is softened to plant. An
arborist will assist CityTrees and its volunteers
to ensure they are planting correctly. After
about a year, the city will help in removing the
stakes and tubs that hold the young tree in
place. “CityTrees will revisit those trees and
prune them so trees are shaped properly to be a
healthy tree,” Stephens said.
Plantings are typically done on the third
Saturday of each month, Stephens said.
CityTrees also holds events such as the Prune
and Pub. It works great especially on a summer
evening. After a couple of hours of pruning,
volunteers grab a beer. There is also the suc-
cessful The Haunting Fundraiser held on
Halloween night at the historic Union
“Twenty trees were planted because of it,”
said Hyman.
The essence of CityTrees is helping the
ecosystem in an urban environment through
community bonding. Meeting new people
through the experience of bettering the com-
munity is something implanted in volunteers
forever, both Stephens and Hyman said.
It doesn’t matter what walk of life you’re
from, Stephens said, “it is the tangible benefit
of seeing that tree you help plant grow 10 years
from now.”
To volunteer, or donate money or tools, visit
CityTrees.org for more information.

Suit accuses EPA of
ignoring harmful pesticides
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge is
considering whether to dismiss a sweeping
lawsuit claiming the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency allowed hundreds of pes-
ticides to be used despite evidence of harm-
ful effects on more than 200 endangered and
threatened species.
The Center for Biological Diversity and
Pesticide Action Network North America
allege the EPA has allowed the pesticide use
without required consultations with federal
agencies to study the impacts.
The groups want the court to order the
EPA to consult with wildlife experts on the
use of 384 pesticides to ensure harmful
chemicals aren’t sprayed in the habitats of
species that include Florida panthers,
California condors, piping plovers and
Alabama sturgeon.
“Those agencies can make suggestions on
how to use the pesticides in a way that won’t
harm endangered species,” said Collette
Adkins Giese, an attorney for the center.

Charles William Bradley, DPM
Charles W. Bradley, resident of
Burlingame, CA, was born on the family
ranch in Fife, Texas, July 23, 1923. He
was the youngest son of Tom (dec.
1975) and Mary Ada (nee Cheatham,
dec. 1983) Bradley and brother of
Tom Jr. (dec. 1978) and Loraine (nee
Ward, dec. 1998) Bradley. Raised in
Fife, Charles attended Lohn High
School, Lohn, TX, (class of 1939) and
Texas Tech University (1940-1942).
He proudly served his country in
World War II in the Solomon Islands,
Pharmacist’s Mate, US Navy. After
the war, his ship docked at Treasure
Island and, Dad fell in love with San
Francisco. He met and married his
beloved Marilyn A. Brown on Apr. 3,
1948 (dec. 1973). He continued his
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,
Kathleen Asciutto, Thomas Ascuitto and David Bradley & great-grandfather to Matthew
Bradley. Brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle and cousin to numerous members of the Bradley,
McGuire, Brown, Drexler, Kazeski, Moak, Haslinger, Kay, Ward, Mitchell, Finlay, Davies, and
Issacs families. On March 12, 2013, he passed away peacefully, at home, surrounded by loved
ones from Pulmonary Fibrosis.
A patriarch, podiatrist, educator, and mentor, Dad practiced podiatric medicine for 60
years in Brownwood and Beaumont TX, and San Francisco and San Bruno, CA., retiring at 86
years of age. Included in his many life accomplishments: Associate Clinical Professor, Chief
of Staff, Chairman and Trustee, California College of Podiatric Medicine; Past President,
American Podiatry Association; founding Member and Chairman of the Board Podiatric
Insurance Company of America; Past President, California Podiatric Medical Association;

He was also a member of The Olympic Club, San Francisco Symphony Foundation, American
Legion, San Bruno Lions Club, Elks Club, San Bruno Chamber of Commerce, Commonwealth
Club, and served on the San Mateo Grand Jury (1989).
Charles, “Brad”, enjoyed entertaining family and friends, working, travelling, card playing,
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
“friends” as he called his patients.
The Bradley family is grateful to caregiver Eduardo Bautista, for the extraordinary care he
gave Dad through his illness.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the San Bruno Lions Club, POB 242, San Bruno, CA 94066, or

San Mateo County. She graduated
Hillsdale High School in 1971,
and obtained her LVN in nursing
at the College of San Mateo. Lindsey’s caring and warm nature was perfectly suited
to her career in nursing, which was tragically cut short soon after she was diagnosed
with multiple sclerosis in 1997. The disease rendered her unable to walk within a few
short years. She struggled for 16 years as the disease became increasingly debilitating,
but bore this burden with unwavering courage and grace. Even as her health declined,
Lindsey never lost her enthusiasm for life or sense of humor.
Lindsey was always on the go. When she wasn’t scooting to local stores and restaurants
or going to movies with her friends, she was busy exploring every nook and cranny
of the Bay Area. Her homes were decorated with knick-knacks she picked up on her
various adventures. Lindsey enjoyed the scenic routes, but loved taking the backroads.
Her zest for life radiated from her sparkling blue eyes and big smile. Her distinct laugh
brightened every room she entered. She was known for wearing large hats, sparkling
jewelry, colorful scarves and gloves, and for the beautiful flowers which always adorned
the decks and patios around her.
Lindsey loved all animals and adopted many strays during her life. Over the years her
many pets included cats, dogs, ducks and other birds, squirrels, rabbits, and goldfish,
all of which became part of her family.
Lindsey was a remarkable person, a devoted sister, an amazing mother, and a great
friend who would do anything for the ones she loved. She made many friends along the
way, but was particularly grateful for the love and compassion shown by Tish, Emma,
Kathy, Gaye, Shirley, Dora, and countless others who did so much for her.
Lindsey was extraordinarily generous, considerate, and thoughtful. She was one-
of-a-kind and will be dearly missed. Her life will be remembered and celebrated at
a public memorial at 11 am on Saturday, March 23, 2013, at the Crippen and Flynn
Carlmont Chapel in Belmont. A reception will follow at her home in Foster City. The
family requests donations in Lindsey’s memory be made to an animal charity of your choice
or the National MS Society. Please, no flowers. Sign the guestbook at www.crippenflynn.com

Judge rules secret FBI
letters unconstitutional
By Paul Elias
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge has ruled that the
FBI’s practice of issuing so-called national security letters to
banks, phone companies and other businesses is unconstitu-
tional, saying the secretive demands for customer data violate
the First Amendment.
The FBI almost always bars recipients of the letters from
disclosing to anyone — including customers — that they have
even received the demands, U.S. District Judge Susan Illston
said in the ruling released Friday.
The government has failed to show that the letters and the
blanket non-disclosure policy “serve the compelling need of
national security,” and the gag order creates “too large a dan-
ger that speech is being unnecessarily restricted,” the San
Francisco-based Illston wrote.
FBI counter-terrorism agents began issuing the letters,
which don’t require a judge’s approval, after Congress passed
the USA Patriot Act in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
The case arises from a lawsuit that lawyers with the
Electronic Frontier Foundation filed in 2011 on behalf of an
unnamed telecommunications company that received an FBI
demand for customer information.

not be mentally fit to stand trial on charges of

Leslie Gardner, 63, was scheduled for a

put on hold after his attorney questioned his
competency. On Tuesday, two doctors instead
will be appointed to evaluate his mental state.
If they agree Gardner is not mentally fit, he
will be committed to a state facility for treat-

remains in custody on $1.01 million bail.
Gardner had already pleaded not guilty to
all counts. The Aptos couple accompanying
him on the boat were arrested March 4, too,

they did not appear to know the boat was
The story began as a possible rescue opera-
tion after a beachgoer
called authorities to report
a boat, the Darling, in
need of help because it
was stuck on a sandbar in
shallow water at low tide
off Linda Mar Beach. As
surfers paddled out to
help and television news
broadcast footage of the
damaged boat, its owner
recognized his vessel and called Sausalito
police to report it stolen. Authorities figured
out that about three hours earlier the yacht
had been taken from the Sausalito Yacht
Harbor and the rescue became an arrest. After
finally removing the three passengers, author-
ities reported finding pizza and beer bottles
on board.
The couple reportedly had met Gardner a
few days prior in Santa Cruz and he invited
them on a boat trip. They and a fourth person
drove with them to Sausalito then drove
Gardner’s truck toward Pillar Point where he
was to meet the boat.
After the arrest, the damaged boat was
towed to Richmond for evaluation.

WASHINGTON — A Republican sena-
tor’s embrace of gay marriage is the latest
sign of soul-searching in a party struggling
to adapt in a society whose demographics —
and views on emotional issues — are chang-
ing fast.
Gay marriage still divides the party, with
the conservative wing strongly opposed. But
an increasing number of Republicans, now
including Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, are
reversing course. Many others simply down-
play the subject.
With the issue of immigration also shift-
ing rapidly under Republicans’ feet, they
seem increasingly focused — and united —
on one overarching goal: keeping income
taxes from rising. Their solidarity on that
issue is hindering President Barack Obama’s
efforts to make higher tax revenue part of a
compromise approach to
deficit spending and
expensive social pro-
These trends raise the
possibility that the GOP
— reeling after losing
the popular vote in five
of the last six presiden-
tial elections —will
lessen its identity with
hot-button social issues
and sharpen its emphasis on tax and spend-
ing matters.
Portman announced Friday that he now
supports gay marriage, linking his stand to
learning that one of his sons is gay.
A former U.S. trade representative and
White House budget chief, Portman is seen
as one of the party’s most knowledgeable
and effective leaders. Mitt Romney consid-
ered him to be his running mate last year.
Portman says he told Romney of his son
Will’s sexuality but does not believe it
affected Romney’s decision.
As a U.S. House member in 1996,
Portman supported the Defense of Marriage
Act, or DOMA. It defines marriage as
between a man and a woman and bars feder-
al recognition of same-sex marriage.
Portman’s reversal makes him the only
Senate Republican to openly back gay mar-
“I have come to believe that if two people
are prepared to make a lifetime commitment
to love and care for each other in good times
and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny
them the opportunity to get married,”
Portman wrote in an op-ed article in The
Columbus Dispatch.
He said he had talked to his pastor and
others, including Senate Minority Leader
Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who opposes gay
marriage, and to former Vice President Dick
Cheney, who supports it.
Cheney, whose younger daughter is a les-
bian, became arguably the best-known
Republican to embrace gay marriage with
his announcement in June 2009.
Portman said his previous views on mar-
riage were rooted in his Methodist faith.
However, he wrote, “Ultimately, for me, it
came down to the Bible’s overarching
themes of love and compassion and my
belief that we are all children of God.”
Despite his party’s struggles with
Americans’ increasing acceptance of gay
rights, many GOP leaders met Portman’s
news with silence or a shrug.
A spokesman for House Speaker John
Boehner, who shares Portman’s Cincinnati
background, said the senator “is a great
friend and ally, and the speaker respects his
position, but the speaker continues to
believe that marriage is between a man and
a woman.”
Gay marriage: Senator’s shift, GOP soul-searching

WASHINGTON — President Barack
Obama is pushing Congress to authorize $200
million a year for research into clean energy
technologies that can wean automobiles off
Obama proposed the idea of an energy secu-
rity trust last month in his State of the Union
address, but he was putting a price tag on the
idea during a trip Friday to the Argonne
National Laboratory outside Chicago — $2
billion over 10 years. The White House said
the research would be paid for with revenue
from federal oil and gas leases on offshore
drilling and would not add to the deficit.
The money would fund
research on “break-
through” technologies
such as batteries for elec-
tric cars and biofuels made
from switch grass or other
materials. Researchers
also would look to
improve use of natural gas
as a fuel for cars and
The proposal is modeled after a plan sub-
mitted by a group of business executives and
former military leaders who are committed to
reducing U.S. oil dependence. The group,
called Securing America’s Future Energy or
SAFE, is headed by FedEx Corp.
U.S. to beef up missile
defense against North Korea
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon
announced Friday it will spend $1 billion to
add 14 interceptors to an Alaska-based missile
defense system, responding to what it called
faster-than-anticipated North Korean progress
on nuclear weapons and missiles.
In announcing the decision, Defense
Secretary Chuck Hagel said he is determined
to protect the U.S. homeland and stay ahead of
a worrisome North Korean missile threat. He
acknowledged that the interceptors already in
place to defend against potential North Korean
missile strikes have had poor test performanc-
“We will strengthen our homeland defense,
maintain our commitments to our allies and
partners, and make clear to the world that the
United States stands firm against aggression,”
Hagel told a Pentagon news conference.
He said the 14 additional interceptors will
be installed at Fort Greely, Alaska, where 26
already stand in underground silos, connected
to communications systems and operated by
soldiers at Greely and at Colorado Springs,
Colo. The interceptors are designed to lift out
of their silos, soar beyond the atmosphere and
deploy a “kill vehicle” that can lock onto a tar-
geted warhead and, by ramming into it at high
speed, obliterate it.
Maryland lawmakers
vote to repeal death penalty
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Maryland lawmakers
approved a measure abolishing the death
penalty on Friday and sent the bill to Gov.
Martin O’Malley, who has long supported
banning capital punishment.
The House of Delegates voted 82-56 for leg-
islation already approved by the Senate.
Eighty Democrats and two Republicans voted
for the bill, which needed 71 votes to pass.
Eighteen Democrats joined 38 Republicans to
vote against it.
The vote represented a major victory for the
Democratic governor, who has pushed for five
years for the death penalty’s repeal. He is
widely believed to be weighing a presidential
bid in 2016.
North Dakota close to
banning abortions at six weeks
BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota on
Friday moved closer to adopting what would
be the most restrictive abortion laws in the
country, with lawmakers sending the
Republican governor measures that could set
the state up for a costly legal battle over the
U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized
the procedure.
The North Dakota Senate overwhelmingly
approved two anti-abortion bills Friday, one
banning abortions as early as six weeks into a
pregnancy and another prohibiting women
from having the procedure because a fetus has
a genetic defect, such as Down syndrome.
North Dakota would be the first state in the
U.S. to adopt such laws.
Supporters said their goal is to challenge the
Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that
legalized abortion up until a fetus is consid-
ered viable, usually at 22 to 24 weeks, though
anti-abortion activists elsewhere have
expressed concern about the strategy.

Letters to the editor
By Elizabeth Ayala
hope you can look beyond the simplici-
ty of the following action and see what
it means in the kind of world we live in
right now. Ours is a world in which most are
only concerned with themselves. It was a
true to life good Samaritan commercial being
played out for all four corners to see.
This happened 4:30 p.m. March 13 at the
intersection of Bay and Woodside roads in
Redwood City. It is rush hour and I am at the
stoplight three lanes from the right sidewalk.
I think the signal could have turned green
and none of the drivers would have noticed.
All attention was on a young man 17 or 18
years of age on the crosswalk island. He had
leaned over toward something out of my line
of vision. I had to lean over in my seat to see
what he was doing. There was a man lying
on the ground in the crosswalk. I never saw
him fall prior to reaching the light. The
younger man leaned over and touched his
shoulder. It was obvious that he was asking
the man if he was alright. The man respond-
ed. The younger man straightened up and
offered his hand to help him up. The teen
guided the man by the shoulders to the side-
walk. At that point, it was apparent that the
man may have been intoxicated. The man,
without thanking the teen for the assistance,
continued to walk unsteadily down the street.
The teen looked back at the man a few times
and continued to wait for the signal to say it
was OK to walk. Cars turning honked and
drivers gave him a wave for his deed. The
teen returned the wave. I honked from my
position and had to assure the driver in front
of me I was not honking at him. The teen
turned and I reached my hand out my win-
dow and gave him a thumbs up. The young
man seemed modest about the attention he
was getting.
The signal turned green and traffic moved
on. I did my shopping but couldn’t get it out
of my mind. It was heartwarming to witness.
I wished I could have stopped and found out
his name to compliment him on his simple
deed. He didn’t seem like the type to go
around boasting about what he did. I wish I
could tell his school principal, teachers and
parents what a fine man this teen had become
on that corner.
Parents and teachers reading this, please
ask your son, ask your students if they are
the one who extended a helping hand to that
stranger on that corner. If he is the one, he
should be recognized. Tell him thank you for
me, someone who noticed.
Elizabeth Ayala is a resident of San Mateo.
Disappointed in Belmont City Council
Regarding the story, “City narrows options
for San Juan Hills,” in the March 14 edition
of the Daily Journal, I am disappointed in the
Belmont City Council.
For years, there was extreme opposition to
development in San Juan Canyon. At least
until the city became a property owner there.
Which it could not afford, since it appears
they needed to finance the purchase. Also a
couple of weeks ago there was mention of
the residents being responsible for inspecting
and replacing (if needed) sewer lines upon
the sale of their property. Based on this, the
city has no business building a new road. If it
does want this new road, it should not use
city money to build it.

Cal Fire editorial rebuttal
Your editorial “No on Coastside Fire
Protection District recall” published in the
March 13 edition of the Daily Journal assert-
ing that Cal Fire has not fulfilled its contract
is absolutely not true. I have been to nearly
every board meeting for the past year and
have heard for myself the reposts document-
ing the contract performance with facts, actu-
al numbers and statistics. There are three
board members who are trying to discredit
Cal Fire because they want to start their own
stand-alone department and hire the friends
and family that used to be in the old, failed
department. Our services then were patchy
and unreliable, with overtime scams, outra-
geous expenses and constant lawsuits and
grievances that cost us millions.
They have refused to renew our Cal Fire
contract on several occasions yet cannot have
a fully functional and qualified staff ready to
respond by July 1, with no backup plan. Our
safety and property depend on our fire and
emergency services, and seconds count in
emergency medical calls. Responders from
over the hill who don’t know the area can’t
reach us in time, and my life depends on
their skill and availability. Cal Fire staff have
saved my life at least three times, and their
service was superb.
Their proposal will also cost us at least
$1.7 million to $2 million more per year with
five fewer staff than our present contract, a
real burden for taxpayers on fixed and lower
incomes. That number does not include over-
time, CalPERS renewal, long-term pension
liability, benefits (which will be up to $4 mil-
lion more) or additional training. Those real
costs are being hidden from the public.

Save Sam’s
Kudos to Cathy Baylock and Russ Cohen
for their efforts in support of Sam’s
Sandwiches, and to the Daily Journal for the
front page article, “Effort launched to save
Sam’s,” in the March 13 edition of the Daily
There is not a better or more enjoyable
lunch anywhere in Burlingame. Every
Wednesday, I have an all-American hot dog
with sauerkraut and onions, or a grilled
Reuben sandwich if I feel I can tolerate a few
more calories. My wife has a hot dog with
onions, tomato, sweet relish and mustard.
Sam’s potato salad alone is worth the trip —
there are none better. Everything is fresh and
wholesome and well prepared. After a few
weeks, Rino will ask you if you want your
usual, and when you come in at Christmas
time June will give you a gourmet salami.
If Sam’s closes, one part of what makes
Burlingame the place we all want to live will
be gone. The fund that Cathy and Russ set up
needs $10,000 to enable the city to help
Sam’s transition to firmer financial footing.
Have lunch there and then visit

Party of no
As our nation slowly limps along toward
economic recovery, Republicans have
renewed their policy of saying “no” to all
legislation proposed by the Obama adminis-
tration toward keeping the economy rolling
Republicans know that a government shut-
down would hurt the Obama administration
more than all the criticism fired at him during
his first term in office. The party in power
always gets the blame for disasters, even
though it was the party out of power to
blame here.
So three cheers for the party of no, once
again revealing how little concern it has for
the millions of retired seniors, the working
poor and handicapped.

ly slow recovery from the worst economic
downturn since the Great Depression.
Experts are concerned about the effects of
the federal government’s sequestration on the
California economic recovery. Of the $85
billion in mandated spending cuts, this state
is expected to take about a $9 billion reduc-
tion in federal funding, about a third of it in
California’s military industry. Education and
social programs supported by federal funding
will also be dinged.
The loss of federal funding couldn’t come
at a worse time, in many respects.
For example, a report recently chronicled
the need for significant infrastructure expen-
ditures to help California move into the
future. It’s uncertain if sequestration will
have a direct impact on those stated needs,
but it doesn’t take a great stretch of the imag-
ination to understand that if any segment of
the state economy is damaged, the fragile
recovery is imperiled.
The report from the California Statewide
Needs Assessment Project focuses on what it
terms a crisis in the network of local streets
and roads. In a nutshell, the report estimates
the amount needed to eliminate the problem
is $82 billion.
Clearly, that is money the state budget does
not factor in, coming at a time when federal
funding for just about everything is being
trimmed back. Among the problems is that
sequestration is not an optional event. It
mandates budget cuts across-the-board, and
without consideration for the degree of need
for programs and services that will lose fund-
The coalition’s report is quite specific
about the road needs, more than 80 percent
of which are the responsibility of cities and
counties, which are spending about $2.5 bil-
lion a year in upkeep — and that is nearly $2
billion short of what’s actually needed to
keep those local streets and roads from
falling further into disrepair. The $82 billion
figure mentioned earlier is what project offi-
cials reckon is needed over the next decade
to keep roads viable to meet future trans-
portation needs.
Project officials also point out that round-
ing up the funds to pay for road maintenance
isn’t really an optional matter. Experts tell us
the obvious — that it costs far less to main-
tain the streets and roads we have, than to let
them go to seed, then build new roads.
The project’s report makes no recommen-
dations on the best, or even the most practi-
cal, way to raise the $82 billion needed for
road maintenance, but it does mention —
almost casually — that if policy makers
decide to tack on more gasoline taxes, the
increase needed to achieve the goal of raising
$82 billion would be about 56 cents more per
It is painfully evident that California, like
many other states, is falling behind with
regard to maintaining and/or improving basic
infrastructure. Way behind. Roads need
repair, schools need updating, bridges require
Perhaps California’s voters do get it, hav-
ing approved higher taxes on themselves in
last November’s election. We’d better get it,
because this state doesn’t have much of a
future unless we start fixing all the things
that are broken.

U.S. stock markets fell Friday, ending
the longest winning streak for the Dow
Jones industrial average in nearly 17
The Dow dropped 25.03 points, or 0.2
percent, to 14,514.11 The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index fell 2.5 points, or 0.2
percent, to 1,560.70, just shy of an all-
time high from October 2007. The
Nasdaq composite index dropped nine
points, or 0.3 percent, to 3,249.
The Dow had notched a 10-day win-
ning streak through Thursday, its longest
since November 1996. The string of
wins pushed the blue-chip index up 484
points, or 3.4 percent, to a Thursday
close of 14,539.14. The index’s closing
price on Feb. 28, just before the rally
began, was 14,054.49.
Trading Friday was tentative because
investors feared that rising inflation
could cause the Federal Reserve to
retreat from policies aimed at boosting
markets. The government said that con-
sumer prices increased in February at the
fastest pace in more than three years.
The increase was driven by a spike in
gas prices; the core index, which
excludes the volatile energy and food
categories, increased more modestly.
But both figures rose 2 percent com-
pared with a year earlier, enough to get
investors’ attention, said Peter Tchir,
who runs the hedge fund TF Market
“It’s real and it’s a drag, and I think
people are growing concerned that it can
get out of control quickly,” Tchir said.
He said signs of economic improvement
and inflation “make them wonder if
there will be continued market pressure
on the Fed” to end its bond-buying pro-
The market’s recent rally to multiyear
highs was fueled in part by the Fed’s
efforts to keep interest rates low and
encourage investment.
The Dow’s win streak matched a 10-
day run that ended on Nov. 15, 1996. To
find a longer uninterrupted series of
gains, you would have to go back to Jan.
3, 1992, when the Dow rose for 11 con-
secutive days.
The index’s longest winning streak
was 14 days, ending June 14, 1897.
Stocks opened lower and extended
their losses at 10 a.m. after a closely-

JPMorgan analyst Daniel Silver said in a

LA Times hack: Security
breach or harmless prank?
SAN FRANCISCO — Federal prosecutors say Reuters’
deputy social media editor conspired with a notorious hack-
er network to cause an online security
breach that should be punished by
decades in federal prison.
Fervent online supporters of Matthew
Keys say the journalist was just taking
part in an online prank that briefly
altered the Los Angeles Times’ website,
and he shouldn’t even have been sus-
pended from his job.
In an age when the line between tech
superstardom and outright hacking
grows increasingly blurry, the case against Keys, 26, lays
bare sharp divisions about what constitutes Internet crime
and how far the government should go to stop it.
Oracle CEO bought airline to ensure service
HONOLULU — Larry Ellison bought a small commuter
airline in Hawaii in part to ensure it would continue service
to the island that is mostly owned by the
Oracle Corp. CEO, according to a repre-
sentative for the billionaire’s personal
investment company.
The danger that Island Air could go
out of business pushed Ellison’s compa-
ny to prepare contingency plans in case
the airline failed, Lawrence Investments
LLC Vice President Paul Marinelli said
this week in a telephone interview. One
option considered was to sign contracts
with other interisland carriers to provide
flights to Lanai. Ellison purchased 98 percent of the land on
Lanai from Castle and Cooke Inc. last year.
Appeals court reverses CIA drone secrecy ruling
WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court Friday
reversed a lower court ruling that allowed the CIA to
refuse to confirm whether it had information on the use
of unmanned drones to kill suspected terrorists.
A lower court federal judge had sided with the CIA
and dismissed a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties
Union seeking those records. In response to the
ACLU’s Freedom of Information Act request, the CIA
said that merely confirming the existence of drone
records would reveal classified information.
Wells Fargo awards CEO Stumpf $19.3M last year
Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf got a pay package
worth $19.3 million last year, 8 percent more than he
received in 2011, when his compensation deal made
him one of the highest paid CEOs in the U.S.
Documents filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission show Stumpf’s total pay for 2012 included
$2.8 million in salary, stock awards worth $12.5 million
and a performance-based cash bonus of $4 million.

WASHINGTON — A divided House
on Friday passed Republican legislation
that would end or consolidate dozens of
duplicative job training programs with
the objective of making it easier for peo-
ple to gain the skills they need in a
changing job market. It’s a goal that
President Barack Obama says he shares
while disagreeing with the way the GOP
would do it. The bill would also increase
employers’ influence in who gets job
training grants.
While there is widespread agreement
that current federal job training pro-
grams are inefficient and overlapping,
Democrats voted overwhelmingly
against the bill, saying they were locked
out of the bill-writing process and that
the bill would eliminate programs tai-
lored to serve veterans, the disabled, ex-
prisoners and other underserved popula-
tions. Democrats also said giving
employers more power over programs
came at the expense of unions, commu-
nity colleges and other stakeholders.
The vote was 215-202, sending the bill
to the Senate where the Democratic
majority is likely to take a different
approach to job training reform.
Obama, in his State of the Union
address last year, said he wanted to “cut
through the maze of confusing training
programs” so people have a direct path to
the help they require. But the White
House said it strongly opposed the House
bill, saying consolidation could leave
some people without needed assistance.
“The current system is inefficient and
ineffective,” Education and the
Workforce Committee chairman John
Kline, R-Minn., said in explaining the
legislation that would eliminate or con-
solidate 35 federal programs and create a
Workforce Investment Fund to act as a
single conduit of support for employers
and job seekers.
“Onerous rules prevent workers from
accessing the training they need when
they need it, and taxpayer dollars are
being spent with little accountability. A
bloated bureaucracy is standing between
workers and the support they need,” he
Republicans noted that while there are
12 million Americans looking for work,
some 3.6 million job openings remain

NEW YORK — The Galaxy S 4,
Samsung’s latest and greatest, has a cute
feature we’ll probably see in a lot of
phones soon: You can shoot both your-
self and your surroundings at the same
time, using the front- and back-mounted
cameras. It’s a bit like having a two-
camera film crew follow you around.
But other than that, it’s hard to point to
anything that will set the world on fire in
the new phone, revealed Thursday at an
event in New York. The S 4 has what
you’d expect from a new smartphone: a
bigger screen and a faster processor. It
may prove to be unfortunate that didn’t
stop there when it presented the succes-
sor to its hit Galaxy S III, because the
phone has a grab-bag of features that
don’t come together as a pleasing whole.
The phone will go on sale sometime
between late April and the end of June,
from Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint
Nextel, T-Mobile USA, US Cellular and
Cricket, Samsung says. If history is any
guide, even smaller phone companies will
get it, if not right away. The phone compa-
nies will set the prices; expect this phone
to start at $200 with a two-year contract.
Samsung provided reporters with
some hands-on time with pre-production
units, which revealed the S 4 to be, in
terms of hardware, a solid successor to
the III. The screen is slightly larger, at 5
inches on the diagonal compared to 4.8
inches for the III and 4 inches for the
iPhone 5.

WASHINGTON — Two former
high-ranking executives at JPMorgan
Chase faced tough questions from sena-
tors Friday about why the bank played
down risks and hid losses from regula-
tors when it was losing billions of dol-
The hearing was held a day after the
Senate Permanent Subcommittee on
Investigations issued a scathing report
that ascribed widespread blame for $6.2
billion in trading losses to key execu-
tives at the nation’s biggest bank.
Douglas Braunstein, the former chief
financial officer, and Ina Drew, the for-
mer chief investment officer overseeing
trading strategy, were pressed to explain
why bank executives gave federal exam-
iners in April information that signifi-
cantly understated losses for the first
quarter of 2012.
“The number I reported (to the regula-
tors) was the number that was given to
me,” said Drew, who resigned last spring
after the losses became public.
Drew blamed the losses on executives
under her watch who failed to control
risks out of the London office. She said
that undermined her oversight and kept
her from preventing the losses.

Big inning fuels Knights over Woodside
By Julio Lara
Believe it or not, not all 12-2 baseball
games are created equal.
There are your 10-run blowouts that
involved a steady, methodical, seven-inning
And there is what happened Friday after-
noon in a non-league Peninsula Athletic
League meeting between Hillsdale and
Woodside high schools.
For five and a half innings, the teams from
different PAL divisions went toe to toe and
took advantage of each other’s mental mis-
But come the bottom of the sixth, the
Knights hopped on the merry-go-round.
And the Wildcats couldn’t stop them.
Behind a 10-run, five-hit, three-error bottom
of the sixth, Hillsdale captured a 12-2 victory.
“We didn’t make any baserunning mistakes
in that inning,” said Hillsdale head coach Neal
Donohoe. “We had a couple small baserun-
ning mistakes [in the early innings], things
that we working on, that we didn’t do a good
job of, that we’ll keep working on and do a
better job of.”
“Three walks, three errors ... they can hit,”
said Woodside head coach Tim Faulkner.
“That team can hit. They grinded us down. It
started with three walks and then we kicked it
a little bit. We still feel great about the game.
It was just one bad inning.”
It turned out to be a really bad inning for the
Wildcats — especially considering the way
they had held their own against a Bay
Division team in Hillsdale.
But after a hit batsman, a walk and then an
intentional walk to start the sixth, the wheels
came off fast and it was an ugly crash for

If the Serra lacrosse team ever wanted to
make a run at the West Catholic Athletic
League title, this might be the year.
“This is easily the best team we’ve had since
I’ve been here,” said Serra’s Matt McGloin, a
four-year varsity player. “We have a good
group of seniors.”
McGloin was nearly unstoppable Friday
evening as he scored three times and assisted
on six others as the Padres downed visiting
Sacred Heart Cathedral 12-7 to run their
WCAL record to 2-0 and their overall mark to
“We showed some good, positive signs,”
said Serra first-year coach Adam Bysouth.
“This is the most focused I’ve seen them.”
The Padres also showed they are far from a
one-man team. McGloin was easily one of the
best players on the field Friday, but the fact he
has plenty of help means opposing teams can’t
concentrate on just stopping him — which
would be a feat unto itself.
Garrett Vichot was the recipient of five
McGloin assists as Vichot consistently sliced
through the heart of the Irish defense and took
feeds from McGloin to lead the Padres with
five goals.
“I call [Vichot] ‘the silent assassin,’”
Bysouth said. “He gets a lot of garbage goals
coming right down the crease. And I mean
garbage goals in a good way.”
Sam Oliver proved he is no slouch either as
he finished with three goals and an assist.
“It’s awesome to know … I can rely on
other guys,” McGloin said.
Added Bysouth: “(Having players like
Vichot and Oliver) takes the heat off of Matt.”
Sacred Heart Cathedral was led by Jamie
Gates and Will Mallonee, who each had two
goals. Colin Franceschi added a goal and an
assist, while Sedge Gates chipped in with one
Defensively, the Padres played well in the
first half, limiting the Irish to just two goals.
Things got a bit tougher in the second half as
the Irish connected five times, although Serra
goaltender William Olson came up with some
big saves in the third and fourth quarter. Olson
finished the match with 10 saves.

The two sides of Orlando Razo have been
evident in his last two starts.
Fresh off his 15-strikeout performance
against Burlingame a week ago, the Serra left-
hander came out poised to pitch to contact
Friday. The strategy paid off, as Razo went the
distance to lead the Padres past visiting St.
Ignatius 3-1.
Razo set down the first seven batters of the
game in order, though only one by way of
strikeout. The senior ultimately fanned seven,
including striking out the side in the seventh
to end it. But he seemed more content to put
the ball in play and let the polished Serra
defense show off its chops behind him.
“That was my words (in the postgame hud-
dle) to the team,” Serra manager Craig
Gianinno said. “He made pitches to allow us
to play defense behind him, and it was a com-
plete team effort.”
Not only did Razo put balls on the ground in

Top women’s talents comes to Undisputed
Youth basketball team, the Redwood Heat, goes undefeated in Silicon championships
By Julio Lara
San Mateo County boxing fans
who are used to seeing world class
talent make its way through
Undisputed Boxing in San Carlos
will get another chance this
2012 London Olympic bronze
medalist and six-time United States
champion Marlen Esparza will spar
six rounds against five-time world
champion and current WBA fly-
weight world champion Carina
This open sparring session will pit
one of the very top U.S. Olympic
female boxers against a true legend
in the history of female professional
boxing. These two women are both
at the top of their game as each pre-
pares for upcoming competitions.
Esparza is gunning for her sev-
enth U.S. championship starting
March 30, while Moreno currently
prepares to defend her WBA fly-
weight world championship belt in
Germany sometime in April.
“I think it’s important because the
men get so much credit and so much
attention for all the things they’re
doing and honestly, the women,
they’re so many great parts to
women’s boxing,” said Undisputed
owner Brian Schwartz of the event.
“These girls are tough and they’re
skilled and they’re just as exciting
as the men are. So, it’s really impor-
tant to keep that going and giving it
the attention that it deserves.”
Both fighters will be available for
a question-and-answer session after
the sparring.
“First and foremost, we love box-
ing, so want boxing going as long as
we can,” Schwartz said. “And to be
able to have a gym and teach the
sport that we love, it’s just a great

Mike Bazzel — both also work with
ESPN 2012 Fighter of the Year
Nonito Donaire and are coming off

win with Bruno Escalante last week
in Redwood City.
“It’s awesome,” Schwartz said.
“Between Marlen, Nonito (Donaire)
and some of the other top fighters
that have kind of been rolling
through, it’s a great thing. I think
some guys would feel lucky if one
of these fighters walked in and we
get to be around them every day, it’s
truly a blessing. And it’s a really
great experience to be a part of.”
The event will take place at 1 p.m.
Admission is free.
Redwood Heat
goes undefeated
It’s been about 15 years, but local
girls’ youth basketball coach Donn
North and his Redwood Heat have
tossed up another goose egg in the
loss column.
North’s Heat, comprised of most-
ly seventh graders, won the Silicon
Valley Championship by going a
perfect 15-0.
“It was basically having a 10-man
rotation where everyone was con-
tributing,” North said when asked
what the key was to the undefeated
run. “So, it wasn’t like you had the
top five out there all the time. It was,
any given day, there were different
players 10, 15 points or grabbing
10, 15 rebounds or playing defense
on the other team’s best player.”
The Heat and its core group of
players have played together for
about three years and have also
placed second at tournaments like
the Junior Olympics and a first-
place showing at the Reno
Tournament last year.
North said that because of the
way the Silicon Valley champi-
onships lined up, going 15-0 was
probably more impressive than any
of their tournament runs — even
more so than his 1997 teams.
“I think they do feel comfortable
with one another where they know
each other’s style,” North said of his
team’s chemistry. “And I give them
the freedom, too. We don’t always
have to run the play, we kind of
adapt to the situation. So, they have
freedom and feel comfortable
shooting the ball.”
North also credit the addition of
two tall post players to the team’s
“They can dominate the boards,”
North said. “You’re not always
going to shoot a high percentage,
but if you can get more shots than
the other team, you should come out
on top.”
Netherlands brings exciting prospects to WBC
By Terry Bernal
Netherlands just keeps climbing
the ladder on the international base-
ball scene.
As an upstart team, Netherlands
made a name for itself by advancing
to the second round of the 2009
World Baseball Classic. Improving
on its success the following year,
the Dutch finished second in both
the 2010 European Baseball
Championship and the 2010
Intercontinental Cup. In 2011,
Netherlands travelled to Panama to
capture the 2011 Baseball World
Cup, downing Cuba 2-1 in the
championship game.
Sunday night marks its biggest
international game to date, though,
as it takes on Japan in the World
Baseball Classic semifinals.
Netherlands doesn’t boast the
powerhouse roster of any of the
other three squads appearing at San
Francisco’s AT&T Park in the high-
ly anticipated grand finale of the
2013 WBC. Only four of their play-
ers — Andruw Jones, Kenley
Jansen, Adrelton Simmons, and
Jurickson Profar — are currently on
big-league rosters.
But, in addition to Giants hitting
coach Hensley Meulens managing
the team, there are some noteworthy
names in the Netherlands mix. And
while they may not be household
names as of yet, Profar, along with
Orioles prospect Jonathan Schoop
and Red Sox prospect Xander
Bogaerts, are touted as future stars.
Profar was recently ranked by
Baseball America as the top minor-
league prospect in baseball. In just
three years of pro ball, the switch-
hitting shortstop has already
debuted with the Rangers, breaking
in as a September call-up last sea-
Former Rangers pitcher Scott
Feldman only got to play with
Profar briefly, but equated him in a
long line of strong Rangers
“I think Texas has a good farm
system and has been producing a lot
of those guys that are pretty talent-
ed,” said Feldman, who signed with
the Chicago Cubs in the offseason.
“And he’s the next one.”
Then there’s Bogaerts, whose
name circulated in trade rumors this
offseason while the Red Sox made a
push to trade for Justin Upton
before the Diamondbacks dealt the
All-Star right fielder to Atlanta.
Also a shortstop, Bogaerts advanced
to the Double-A level last year, hit-
ting .307 on the year with 20 home
runs between Single-A Salem and
Double-A Portland.
Schoop is the younger brother of
former Giants farmhand Sharlon
Schoop. And the infielder has made
a quick name in the Orioles organi-
zation by proving versatile around
the infield while continuing to be a
power threat at the plate. In 2011,
Schoop was anchored at shortstop at
Single-A Delmarva. But when
Baltimore drafted shortstop Manny
Machado, Schoop made the move to
third base.
When the two were promoted to
High-A Frederick, Schoop transi-
tioned to second. Orioles minor-
league pitcher Chris Petrini said the
two were one of the best double-
play tandems that has ever played
behind him.
“With [Schoop] and Manny
behind me, I didn’t have to worry
about too much with them making
plays,” Petrini said.
Petrini said Schoop’s tools belie
the .245 batting average he hit for at
Double-A Bowie last season, citing
Schoop’s talents both sides of the

arm, hits for power, hits for con-
tact,” Petrini said. “The only thing

Chandler Vieria. But No. 1 persevered
and got out of the jam.
“I like the pressure,” Vieria said.
“When I accomplish something, it
makes me feel that much better. So the
pressure really adds to me. It makes me
want to pitch better.”
After dancing his way out of trouble
on the mound, Vieria helped his own
cause at the dish in the bottom half of
the inning. After Armando Fajardo made
good for his first inning error with a sin-
gle and Harry Shannon followed with a
walk, Taran Poss plated the first run with
a sacrifice fly to centerfield that scored
Fajardo, who had reached third base on
a passed ball.
One batter later, Vieria pounced on the
first pitch and stroked it to the opposite
field for an RBI and a 2-0 advantage.
“I was trying to stay focus and be
aggressive,” Vieria said of his AB. “I
wanted to get a hit. So my coach told me
to look first pitch and I did.”
Woodside was able to cut into that
lead in the third after a two-out walk set
the table for No. 3 hitter Brad Degnan,
who ripped a ball into the right center-
field gap to score Shane Stafford from
Vieria was pulled after five innings,
one run and three hits of work.
“I thought I was doing good,” Vieria
said. “Halfway through, when I walked
a couple of guys, my mechanics were
breaking down but then my coach quick-
ly told me and I got it back. We didn’t
want to get my pitch count too high.”
“The pitching was great,” Donohoe
said of Vieria and reliever Brandon
Butcher. “They did what we talked
about. They pumped the strike zone.
That’s what we’ve been preaching.
Throw strikes first, throw strikes down
in the zone second. If you do those
things, you’ll be fine.”
Woodside tied the game in its half of
the sixth behind another Hillsdale error.
Andrew Holm picked up the RBI with a
double to the opposite field.
“It’s just going to be a continual focus
of doing all the little things right,”
Donohoe said of his team’s mental laps-
es. “And that’s what we always talk
about ... knowing what you’re supposed
to be doing and being aware of situa-
tions at all times.”
The Wildcats felt good tied 2-2 head-
ing into the bottom part of the sixth. But
all that goodness changed very quickly.
With the bases loaded and no one out,
Emmett Whitfield dumped a ball into
right for an RBI and Michael Camel
ripped a single for another run right
after. Then the Wildcats booted the ball
to the tune of three errors in four batters
as the Knights piled on the runs.
Sandwiched between those three mis-
takes was a two-RBI single by Kellen
By the time the dust settled, Poss,
Jonathan Frager (2) and Butcher added
RBIs and Hillsdale was up 12-2.
It took Woodside 12 batters in the
frame to pick up its first out.
“As soon as they brought the infield
in, they got aggressive early in the count,
put balls in play in the middle of the
field where they know good things will
happen,” Donohoe said of his team.
“And that was great because that’s an
approach we talk about.”
“I think we’re in good shape once we
get into league,” Faulkner said despite
the ugly loss on the scoreboard. “I’m
confident and I think we’re in a good
spot. I really do. We’re breaking in [a
new team]. And I’m happy with the way
things are going.”
Hillsdale’s Chandler Vieria allowed just
one run on three hits in five innings.

would be the best thing to do,” Velez
said. “(I can do) a lot of good things and
all it takes is a couple of things to make
things bad.”
Velez is a veteran of the Peninsula
baseball scene, having started his coach-
ing career in 1967. He coached six dif-
ferent Peninsula Athletic League pro-
grams and has spent the better part of
the last 10 years at Aragon and San
“I’m an old-style coach,” Velez said.
“In my days when I was a player, play-
ers came out to play and worked hard
and did what they were told to do.”
The Bearcats managed only one win-
ning season in Ocean Division play dur-
ing Velez’s tenure, an 8-4 finish in 2010,
and never finished above .500 overall.
He was 26-28 in PAL Ocean Division
play and 43-67 overall. In three years
with Aragon, however, Velez’s teams
posted a mark of 50-24-1 overall and
28-13 in PAL play.
Scheller, who is also the school’s head
football coach, will take over as the
Bearcats manager and will be assisted
by Dennis Millstein and Bryan Pollard,
who were both already on the coaching
staff. Scheller played the game through
high school before giving it up to con-
centrate on playing college football. He
has never coached or managed the
game, however. Millstein and Pollard
will handle most of the in-game coach-
ing duties.
“I’ve been around it a long time and
love the game,” Scheller said. “There
aren’t too many teams I’d take over, but
I figured this was for the best.”
Millstein was the Bearcats’ frosh-soph
manager until the school had to fold the
program because of a lack of numbers.
Pollard is a former Bearcats’ player and
has coached in the Foster City youth
“They’ve done a great job in practice
and in the games,” Scheller said of his
Velez will now have to figure what to
do with his first spring off in decades.
He anticipates he’ll be around the vari-
ous ballparks on the Peninsula, watch-
ing a number of different teams play. He
has agreed to coach the San Mateo Joe
DiMaggio summer-league team and
anticipates getting another coaching gig
in the high school ranks next season.
“Right now, I think I’m looking for-
ward to a spring off,” Velez said. “I’m
going to miss it. Everywhere I’ve went,
my philosophy was teaching the game
and parallel it with real life.”

Sports brief
Los Angeles Marathon set for Sunday
LOS ANGELES — No American elite runner has won the
Los Angeles Marathon since a sweep in 1994.
Local runners Deena Kastor and Nick Arciniaga hope to
change that.
Kastor, from nearby Agoura Hills, has the fastest time
among the elite runners for the 28th running on Sunday.
The best time posted by Arciniaga of Fountain Valley is
about two minutes slower than the best by defending champi-
on Simon Njoroge of Kenya, but he said Friday that he hopes
to “make that next jump” from 2 hours, 11 minutes to 2:09.
Kenyan men and Russian women have dominated this race.
Since Americans Paul Pilkington and Olga Appell won their
respective races 19 years ago, Kenyans have won 13 times,
including 12 consecutive times between 1999 and 2010.
Russian women have won seven times, although not since
Kastor holds the American record at 2:19:36, which she ran
in London. But that was seven years ago, and now at age 40,
she’s past her prime.
But what a prime that was: an Olympic bronze medal in
Athens and five American records, including the marathon,
half-marathon and three road races.
“I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be doing this,” she said,
“but as long as the goals keep presenting themselves, I’ll keep
chasing them.”

Bryant starts but has
short night for Lakers
played 12 minutes Friday at Indiana,
missed all four shots and then went to
the bench for good.
It was all his severely sprained left
ankle could take.
Bryant spent two days trying to
fight his way back after landing on the
foot of Atlanta’s Dahntay Jones in the
waning seconds of Wednesday’s loss
at Atlanta. Throughout the day, he
looked better and after going through
warm-ups, the Lakers put Bryant in
the starting lineup.
He wasn’t the same. His four shots
all came up short and when he went to
the bench at the end of the first quar-
ter, he never returned. It was only the
15th time in Bryant’s 17-year NBA
career he was held scoreless in a
Raiders sign free
agent LB Nick Roach
ALAMEDA — The Oakland
Raiders found the potential replace-
ment for disappointing former first-
round pick Rolando McClain, agreeing
to a free-agent contract on Friday with
former Chicago linebacker Nick
The Raiders announced the deal with
Roach, who is the second linebacker
signed by the team this week, following
a three-year, $6 million deal given to
Kaluka Maiava on Wednesday.
Maiava is expected to replace Philip
Wheeler, who left to sign a five-year,
$26 million deal with Miami earlier this
week. The deal with Roach fills the
hole in the middle created by
McClain’s disappointing play.
“It just seemed like Oakland was an
opportunity that was too good to pass
up,” Roach said.

ON CALL 24/7
Sacred Heart wasted little time in taking its
only lead of the game, scoring just 43 seconds
in when Franceschi found Jamie Gates in
from of the net for the score. Serra responded
by keeping possession for the next three min-
utes — but came up empty.
“We started off the first quarter pretty bad,”
McGloin said. “I think we were just being
extremely cautious.”
While the first nine minutes of the first
quarter didn’t go according to plan for the
Padres, the final three minutes of the period
were the complete opposite. Oliver knotted
the score at 1 off an assist from McGloin at
the 9:07 mark. The Padres then took the lead
for good a little over a minute later when
McGloin, on a restart, worked his way to the
front of the net and then surprised everyone
with an underhand shot that eluded the crowd
in front of the goal and found the back of the
net. With 20 seconds left in the period, the
Padres increased their lead to 3-1 on Vichot
and McGloin’s first hookup of the match.
Sacred Heart Cathedral pulled a goal back
just over three minutes into the second period,
but Serra came back with three unanswered
goals — one each from Oliver, Vichot and
McGloin — to take a 6-2 lead at halftime.
The Padres pushed their lead to 7-2 early in
the third quarter when Andrew Bowler inter-
cepted a pass from the Irish goaltender, who
was way out of his crease. After catching the
ball, Bowler transitioned to offense and once
he got separation from an Irish defender,
unleashed a shot that found the twine with the
Irish goaltender still 10 yards away from his

ing a Serra turnover into a Will Mallonee
score. But Serra, again, responded with a
three-goal outburst to take a 10-3 advantage
and held a 10-4 lead going into the final 12
In the final period, the Padres got a little
sloppy and took a number of penalties, giving
the Irish a man-advantage for most of the
quarter. Serra still managed to find the back of
the net two more times while the Irish had
their biggest output of the game, scoring three

every inning with the exception of the sev-
enth, he induced two pivotal double plays to
strand runners in scoring position in each the
fourth and fifth innings.
St. Ignatius (0-1 WCAL, 7-1 overall) ace
Jack Klein was every bit as electric as adver-
tised. The Stanford-bound senior evoked the
charisma of a young Dan Haren, though that
includes occasional bouts of wildness, and a
disposition to being too stubborn to the strike
zone at times.
“He’s a competitor in the true sense of the
word, and it doesn’t matter the situation,” St.
Ignatius manager Matt Stecher said. “He’s
always going to work his hardest and do his
best. And I think he had a great outing today.
He gave up a couple early hits, a couple early
runs, but I think he pitched very well and did
everything he needed to do to keep us in the
game. We just didn’t have the offense today
that we needed.”
Serra (2-0, 8-1) touched Klein for single
runs in the first and second innings, then man-
ufactured an insurance run in the sixth off
Wildcats reliever Jack Schoenberger.
In the first, Padres leadoff hitter Jordan
Paroubeck set the tone for the afternoon by
smoking a double to deep left to lead off the
inning. Paroubeck fell behind in the count 0-2
to Klein, but exercised some gamesmanship
by taking his time getting back into the box
for the next pitch. Klein challenged with the
0-2 offering, and Paroubeck didn’t miss it. He
eventually advanced to third on a wild pitch
and promptly scored on a sacrifice fly by
Mickey McDonald.
“We just teach our guys to really slow
things down as the at-bats progress and they
get deeper in to the at-bat,” Gianinno said. “In
a situation like that, [Paroubeck] got behind
quickly, so we just tried to slow everything
down a little bit and hopefully create some
momentum in our favor.”
In the second, Serra rallied by virtue of
three straight singles to start the frame.
Christian Conci rapped a single to left before
Anthony Ramirez reached on an infield sin-
gle. Nick Toomey followed with an RBI sin-
gle to left to give Serra a 2-0 lead.
After dominating through the first three
innings, Razo got a boost from some flashy
defense. In the fourth, St. Ignatius set the table
with back-to-back singles from Christian
Santos and Logan Steinberg. Wildcats cleanup
hitter Matt Krook followed with a hot shot to
second, but Serra second baseman Dalvin
Martin vacuumed it up to start a smooth dou-
ble play with the shortstop McDonald.
“It was up the middle and it was kind of a
chopper,” Martin said. “So you’ve got to pick
the hop and then after that it’s easy — just let
Mickey take over.”
In the fifth, St. Ignatius set the table with a
long double by Jason Lock and a walk to Nate
Miller. But with one out, Dylan Foster
scorched a one-hopper to McDonald at short.
The senior wrestled with the ball while getting
it out of his glove, but Martin timed his route
to the second-base bag perfectly to turn
Serra’s second double play of the game.
“That was a hard hit ball,” Martin said. “So,
that was a good play on him just getting it to
me, and it was pretty easy after that.”
Martin and McDonald’s chemistry may
have something to do with the two having
played together since they were 10. Although
Martin is from South San Francisco and
McDonald is from San Mateo, they began
playing with the Star Maker 10 & Under
Baseball travel team, and have since been
teammates on several different summer teams.
However, this is the first season the two have
been paired over the middle.
St. Ignatius got on the board in the sixth
when Klein took Razo deep for a solo shot to
cut Serra’s lead to 2-1. However, Serra
answered back in the bottom of the frame
when Ramirez scored an unearned run on an
RBI fielder’s choice off the bat of Martin.
Razo then emerged in the seventh with his
strongest inning of the game, striking out the
side to end it. The southpaw’s record
improves to 2-1.
“I felt pretty strong in the seventh inning,”
Razo said. “I actually saved a bunch in the
tank for that. I felt like that was when we were
in the best rhythm of the whole game, in the
seventh inning, just working quickly. [Serra
catcher Michael Tinsley] was putting them
down fast and I was just trusting what he put

brated at the World Baseball Classic.
This time it was 38-year-old right-hander
Nelson Figueroa, who became the pride of
Puerto Rico on Friday night when he led his
team into the semifinals and eliminated the
Americans, 4-3.
After Figueroa threw his last pitch to end
the sixth inning, he leaped off the mound with
a hoot like a kid at recess, then ran to catcher
Yadier Molina to share a hug.
“We were supreme underdogs against that
lineup,” Figueroa said. “It was motivation to
show them what kind of pitcher I was.”
On Thursday, demonstrative Dominicans
dominated the All-Star-laden U.S. squad. The
Americans endured a scoreless streak of 14
innings spanning the two defeats, and
Figueroa limited them to two singles in six
shutout innings.
The Americans have still not won the WBC
— or even reached the final — in three tries.
“When you play double-elimination, it’s a
crapshoot,” manager Joe Torre said. “And
Figueroa pitched his tail off tonight.”
J.C. Romero escaped a bases-loaded jam in
the eighth and retired the final four batters for
his first save. Center fielder Angel Pagan
caught the final out, triggering a pileup of
Puerto Ricans behind the mound.
“When I caught that ball, I was thinking
about my country all the way,” Pagan said.
“We overcome what everyone expected. I
think nobody expected us to be this far, but it’s
about what we believe, and we believe we can
go all the way.”
The Puerto Ricans advanced for the first
time to the semifinals, which begin Sunday in
San Francisco. They’ll play the Dominican
Republic on Saturday in the final game in
Miami, which will determine seedings for the
championship round.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Matt
Cain didn’t looked much like the
San Francisco Giants’ opening day
starter in his
four previous
spring starts.
He did Friday
against the
Texas Rangers.
The right-
hander gave up
two hits in five
s c o r e l e s s
innings and
Hunter Pence
and Andres Torres backed him with
two-run home runs in a 5-2 victory
in front of a sellout crowd of 12,106
at Scottsdale Stadium.
Cain also got defensive help from
batterymate Buster Posey, the reign-
ing National League MVP. Posey
threw out Elvis Andrus and Jim
Adduci as they attempted to steal
second base.
“I felt good in the bullpen (warm-
ing up before the game),” said Cain,
who was 16-5 in 32 starts for the
World Series champions in 2012. “I
thought about where I wanted to
throw. I was confident throwing
whatever I wanted. The misses
weren’t as big.”
Cain called Posey’s throws to sec-
ond “pretty ridiculous.”
“Those guys can run. He back-
handed the ball on the second one
(before throwing,” Cain said.
Cain knows he can help Posey
keep baserunners off balance by
varying his times to the plate and
not allowing them to get a true read
on his motion.
“You want to be around the plate
to give him a chance,” Cain said. “If
you do that, it doesn’t matter who is
running. It will be close.”
Veteran right-hander Derek Lowe,
making a bid for a relief spot after
being signed to a minor league deal
by the Rangers on March 6, gave up
two hits in two scoreless innings in
his first start of the spring.
It wasn’t that long ago, Lowe
said, when he was throwing batting
practice to his 9-year-old son’s
Little League team. He pitched for
Cleveland and the New York
Yankees in 2012.
Lowe, one of only three men in
major league history with at least
160 victories and 80 saves, said he
wanted to use his time against the
Giants “to make an impression. As
much as you want live BP to give
you an idea, it can’t duplicate what
you can get in a game.
“The first inning was a little
rough. The second inning was a lot
better. I had a lot more control over
where the ball was going.”
After Lowe’s departure, Pence
broke a scoreless tie with a two-run
home run off Wilmer Font in the
fourth inning and drove in a run
with a double in the sixth. Torres’
two-run shot came off Johan Yan in
the seventh.
NOTES: RHP Sergio Romo, the
Giants’ closer, gave up a run on two
hits and struck out a batter, pitching
the seventh inning . . . the Giants
made several roster moves on
Friday. Six RHPs were sent to the
minor-league camp, along with one
LHP, three INFs and one OF. Three
more RHPs were optioned to Triple-
A Fresno, one LHP, two INFs and
two OFs. One LHP went to Class A
Advanced San Jose.
Cain throws 5 shutout innings

Arizona’s Brandon McCarthy
acknowledged he was a bit weary
going four innings in the 90-degree
heat of Scottsdale.
Oakland’s venerable Bartolo
Colon seemed only to get better as
the warm afternoon wore on.
When all was accounted for,
McCarthy and Colon each allowed a
pair of runs in four innings, the
longest outing of the spring for both,
and that was it for the offenses for
both teams as the Diamondbacks
and Athletics finished in a 2-2 tie
McCarthy, facing his former
Oakland teammates for the first
time, gave up three hits, struck out
six and walked two. He blanked
Oakland for three innings before
giving up consecutive two-out RBI
doubles to Seth Smith and John Jaso
in the fourth.
McCarthy was pleased, though,
with the progression of the change-
up he is adding to his repertoire this
spring, saying he threw “at least 10”
against the A’s.
So far this spring, McCarthy —
coming back from a horrific head
injury when he was hit by a line
drive late last season while pitching
for Oakland — has 16 strikeouts in
12 innings. The two walks he gave
up Friday were his first of the
“The change-up was actually real-
ly good today,” he said. “I was able
to set a lot of guys up with that and
do some good things with it.
Hopefully the strikeouts come
because of that changeup. I think it
sets up a new layer and it’s hard to
stay on my stuff, but I have to exe-
cute to make that happen.”
Colon, who has five games left on
his 50-game suspension for his sub-
stance abuse violation, gave up both
runs in the first then settled down,
scattering six hits, striking out three
and hitting a batter. He didn’t talk to
reporters afterward, but manager
Bob Melvin said the 39-year-old
right-hander knows what he needs to
accomplish in the spring.
“He’s the kind of guy that knows
how to prepare and get ready for the
season,” Melvin said.

encouragement. That persistence and
strength — not to mention an abundance
of optimism — helped LaMarr create
the in-custody jail program Choices and
against financial odds open The Centre
as a place often of last resort. Other
services did and do exist but LaMarr
realized that all but Delancey Street
close up at 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. What does
somebody do if they are released after
that hour with no place to go, no money
and no bridges that they hadn’t burned?
“What do I do, Miss Shirley? Where
do I go?” she remembered them asking.
“They need a place to stop and get their
head clear for a minute.”
LaMarr, who already operated two
transitional homes, turned the jail lobby
into a de facto receiving center. Then
driving down Broadway one day in
2011 she spotted the building which
would become The Centre. It was, she
said, a “hot mess” but she was hooked
and despite it being for sale rather than
lease, the owners, the Salvation Army,
was swayed to let them rent it.
The Centre — named after the
Canadian spelling just to be a little dif-
ferent, she said — is a one-stop shop for
inmates and even one client who is a
recovering alcoholic with no criminal
background but a desire to turn his life
around. The population of the 6,800-
square-foot building averages 27 to 28
staying about six months and all mem-
bers are required to clean, cook, look for
employment or schooling and be busy.
They offer catering, landscaping, con-
struction and auto services as ways to
bring in money and to be useful. They
build handicap ramps and even catered
the retirement dinner for outgoing coun-
ty supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson.
“Everybody has a purpose,” she said.
LaMarr does not tolerate smoking
outside the building and maintains a
dress code. The center sits next to a 7-
Eleven and down the street from a bar
but LaMarr said that just shows partici-
pants have a choice in what they do. The
98 percent clean rate of random drug
testing is a testament to that, said David
Maloney, procurement and donations
The space out back often hosts car
washes, flea markets and even the Street
Church ministry. And the location, just a
straight shot from the jail on Bradford
Street, could hardly be more ideal.
Not content to simply talk the talk,
LaMarr also calls The Centre home and
her family members and animals share
space among the cramped rooms and
shelves filled with games, puzzles and
She estimates being able to house and
rehabilitate a client for $1,000 per
month compared to $48,000 a year at
the county jail.
But now the Salvation Army wants to
sell the building for roughly $1.1 mil-
lion and The Centre is due out April 1.
A benefactor has promised some money
to help buy a building but LaMarr and
Maloney said they may have to lease
again in the interim until something per-
fect opens up. On Friday, Maloney
looked at a promising 13-room church
location in San Mateo but said the
Crystal Springs neighborhood residents
might need to be convinced.
LaMarr is already on it.
“I know what they think. I wouldn’t
want the stereotype in front of my yard
or doing nothing but smoking on the
porch either,” she said. “It’s paramount
we be gooder than good and we have to
prove who we are.”
But with the determination that has
got her and the program to where it is
today, LaMarr and Maloney said they
are ready to invite the public in and
show them the lengthy history of suc-
cess and being a good and responsible
neighbor. Delancey Street faced the
same hurdles when it began and is now
a widely respected and welcome pro-
gram, she said.
Besides, she said, “200 people in my
place is 200 people not out there bur-
LaMarr does have two categories not
accepted — sex offenders and arsonists.
But everybody else can expect to find
help and support if they’re willing to
accept it.
Now, though, LaMarr is the one look-
ing for a little help. She and the others
are so focused on the daily work they
aren’t necessarily seeking out the grants
and other financial support available,
she concedes.
The public and officials may not also
really know the program and center
needs help simply because LaMarr has
always been so good at making every-
thing come together.
On Saturday, March 23, a fundraiser
is what is coming together now. The
event will be the last hurrah at the cur-
rent location and include door prizes
and a sports memorabilia auction boast-
ing autographed items like a signed
Colin Kaepernick jersey, Giants base-
balls and a Mike Ricci hockey stick.
Memorabilia Man Cave donated several
items for auction and former Oakland
Raiders quarterback Jim Plunkett is
passing on goods too, Maloney said.
Attendees will also enjoy appetizers
catered by The Centre.
For all the challenges of establishing
The Centre and now looking for a more
permanent home, LaMarr said the
results are all worth the effort.
“I wouldn’t change one minute of it,”
she said.
The fundraiser is 5 p.m. Saturday,
March 23 at The Centre, 1718
Broadway, Redwood City. For any ques-
tions, contact David Maloney at 261-
1075. Attendance is free and includes
appetizers and beverages. Raffle tickets
will be sold for door prizes in addition
to the sports memorabilia auction. For

Clergy victims make
demands of new pope
By Gillian Flaccus
LOS ANGELES — Most Roman Catholics are rejoicing at
the election of Pope Francis, but alleged victims of clergy
abuse in the U.S. are demanding swift and bold actions from
the new Jesuit pontiff: Defrock all molester priests and the car-
dinals who covered up for them, formally apologize, and
release all confidential church files.
Adding to their distrust are several multimillion dollar set-
tlements the Jesuits paid out in recent years, including $166
million to more than 450 Native Alaskan and Native American
abuse victims in 2011 for molestation at Jesuit-run schools
across the Pacific Northwest. The settlement bankrupted the
Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus.
Argentines poor celebrate
Francis as their ‘slum pope’
By Luis Andres Henao
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — For more than a billion Roman
Catholics worldwide, he’s Pope Francis. For Argentina’s poorest
citizens, crowded in “misery villages”
throughout the capital, he’s proudly known as
one of their own, a true “slum pope.”
Villa 21-24 is a slum so dangerous that
most outsiders don’t dare enter, but residents
say Jorge Mario Bergoglio often showed up
unannounced to share laughs and sips of
mate, the traditional Argentine herbal tea
shared by groups using a common straw.
People here recall how the Buenos Aires
archbishop ditched a limousine and would
arrive on a bus to their little chapel; how he sponsored marathons
and carpentry classes, consoled single mothers and washed the
feet of recovering drug addicts; how he became one of them.
“Four years ago, I was at my worst and I needed help. When
the Mass started he knelt down and washed my feet. It hit me
hard. It was such a beautiful experience,” said Cristian Marcelo
Reynoso, 27, a garbage collector trying to kick a cocaine addic-
tion through the church’s rehab program.

LOS ANGELES — You practically
need an advanced degree in physics to
fully comprehend the convoluted
physical machinations depicted in
“Upside Down,” Juan Solanas’ dizzy-
ingly loopy sci-fi romance. Depicting
the Romeo and Juliet-style romance
between lovers from twin planets with
opposite gravitational pulls, this head-
scratcher boasts visual imagination to
spare even as its logistical complexi-
ties and heavy-handed symbolism ulti-
mately prove off-putting.
The lovers — none so subtly named
Adam (Jim Sturgess) and Eden
(Kirsten Dunst) — first meet as chil-
dren who manage to forge a spiritual
connection even if they’re literally
upside down from each other.
Unfortunately, contact between the
inhabitants of the two worlds is strict-
ly forbidden by the dominant one, Up
Top, which exploits the resources of
its neighbor planet, Down Below.
Connecting the two worlds is a mas-
sive tower owned by an exploitative
megacorporation named — what else?
-- TransWorld.

encounter, which ended with Eden appar-
ently falling to her death, Adam is a lowly
scientist working at TransWorld who has
managed to invent an anti-aging cream
made from the pollen of pink bees (really).
He suddenly comes across the now grown-
up Eden, who has no recollection of him
thanks to a case of amnesia from her fall.
So he sets out to woo her all over again,
a task made more complicated by the fact
that the only way he can enter her world is
to don gravity-defying anti-matter that
inconveniently bursts into flame after a
short time.
If you’ve managed to follow all of this so
far, then you indeed might enjoy the unde-
niably clever otherworldly setup for what
otherwise is a fairly pedestrian love story.
The writer-director produces many impres-
sively striking images, many of them with-
out the benefit of CGI effects, to render his
fantastical setting. Particularly impressive
is a virtuoso set piece involving a flaming
Adam desperately propelling himself into
an upside down body of water.
But despite their dual-worlds environ-
ment, the central characters ultimately are
too one-dimensional to sustain our interest.
Sturgess overplays the puppy-dog charm,
while Dunst wears her natural radiance like
a comfortable overcoat.
The film does manage to spring to life
with every appearance by Timothy Spall as
Adam’s friendly but ill-fated co-worker.
The veteran British actor delivers a won-
derfully ebullient and moving turn that

overly contrived and mechanistic proceed-

In countless films about emergencies, crimes
and police work, the 911 dispatcher is but a bit
player, an anonymous, robotic voice briefly
heard on the other end of a breathless call made
by our movie’s main players.
But in “The Call,” the 911 operator gets a
starring role. It would seem to be long overdue,
since Halle Berry is apparently among their
She’s a highly professional emergency oper-
ator in Los Angeles, where the trauma of a first
kidnapping case has forced her to hang up the
headset. But, having shifted to a trainer posi-
tion, she’s lured back for a second kidnapping
call when a rookie dispatcher can’t handle the
frightened pleas from a teenager trapped in a
car’s trunk (Abigail Breslin).
Director Brad Anderson (who has a few stur-
dy thrillers to his credit: “Transsiberian,” “The
Machinist”), working from the simple, high-
concept screenplay by Richard D’Ovidio, ably
cuts between Berry’s increasingly emotionally-
attached Jordan Turner and Breslin’s panicking
Casey Welson, contrasting the fraught strate-
gizing of Turner with the frantic police pursuit
of the kidnapper (Michael Eklund). Turner’s
cop boyfriend (Morris Chestnut) is among
those in the hunt.
“The Call” dials up a shallow thrill ride, but
one efficiently peppered with your typical
“don’t go in there!” moments. But what once
was usual for Hollywood — reliable, popcorn-
eating genre frights — isn’t so much anymore.
“The Call” is a rudimentary, almost old-fash-
ioned 90-minute escape that manages to
achieve its low ambitions.
To distract and calm Welson, Turner at one
point asks her her favorite movie, to which
she replies “Bridesmaids.” The bit has a two-
pronged effect. One, we can’t help but think:
Wouldn’t it be nice to instead be watching
something as good as “Bridesmaids”? But
also, two, to remind us of the joy of
moviegoing, of which thoughtless movies
like “The Call” are a definite part.
But while “The Call” manages to build some
suspense from the trunk of the car — the clever
attempts to elicit help, the dwindling cell phone
battery — its deficiencies become less forgiv-
able once the action turns off the road.
Eklund’s psychopath kidnapper is cartoonishly
drawn and when he has Welson back at this lair
— and Turner is summoned from the high-
tech, oddly NASA-like call center — “The
Call” disconnects with horror film clichis.
Berry, with a ball of short curly hair, keeps
the film rolling even when it veers off course.
Breslin, making a leap to more sordid territory,
has little to do but be scared. Michael Imperioli
makes a brief appearance as a concerned
bystander, a reminder mainly that the fine
“Sopranos” actor deserves considerably better.
From “Phone Booth” to “Cellular” (a film
with which “The Call” shares many similari-
ties), phone-based movies have generally been
bad service for moviegoers, who so often
would rather look at their own mobiles in the
movie theater. Perhaps we can await a sequel to
“The Call” that shifts to the 311 call center,
where a pothole complaint spirals dramatically
out of control. So call me maybe?
‘The Call’ dials up a shallow thriller
Halle Berry stars in ‘The Call.’

Over the past eight years, those
cute little Lego people — minifigs,
as they’re known — have virtually
traveled to Middle-earth,
Hogwarts, Gotham City and a
galaxy far, far away in video games
developed by TT Games. The
minifigs are finally coming home
in their latest adventure, an open-
world action game created exclu-
sively for Nintendo’s Wii U.
“Lego City Undercover” forgoes
the wizardry and intergalactic won-
der of big-budget franchises for
something much more simple: a
good old-fashioned police romp set
in sprawling Lego City, a diverse
metropolis where cars are made out
of colorful plastic bricks and resi-
dents have interchangeable heads.
As undercover officer Chase
McCain, players must seamlessly
switch between multiple disguises
with different abilities to hunt
down Lego City lawbreakers. For
example, when dressed as a farmer,
McCain can water plants that blos-
som into vines that can be climbed.
If he’s imitating a burglar, his
crowbar can crack open doors.
There’s even an astronaut suit.
The game’s zany writing and
voice acting alternate between
corny and hilarious. (”I’ll come
back and give you my insurance
details later!” McCain yells after
smashing into other cars.) While
youngsters might enjoy “Lego
City” the most, there’s plenty here
for adults who grew up with
“Grand Theft Auto,” including
sendups of “Goodfellas” and “The
Shawshank Redemption.”
McCain can get behind the wheel
of more than 100 vehicles: cars,
trucks, boats and helicopters. He
can also ride horses, pigs and, at
one point, a dinosaur. Outside of
the story missions that take
McCain inside such Lego City
locales as the museum and prison,
there are enough side pursuits for
even the most obsessive gamers,
from capturing aliens to painting
There are also lots and lots of
bricks to pick up.
Just like the “Lego” games that
have come before “Lego City,”
there are millions of studs spread
across the world that can be traded
in for customizable characters and
vehicles. “Lego City” adds super-
bricks to the mix. These col-
lectibles can be cashed in to craft
superbuilds like helipads and stunt
“Lego City” employs the touch
screen of the Wii U GamePad as a
police scanner and communicator.
It’s mostly used to pinpoint loca-
tions on the interactive map, but it
can also do stuff like spot bad guys
through walls, listen in on conver-
sations and snap photos of crimes.
It’s a neat touch but ultimately
feels gimmicky and not integral to
the overall experience.
The game’s biggest flaw is its
mind-numbingly long loading
screens that feature nothing more
than a spinning police badge and
some funky wah-chickah-wah-wah
background music. It was a block-
headed decision not to extend the
game’s charms with some title
cards, images or anything — ANY-
THING! — other than just a rotat-
ing graphic.
Despite that annoyance and a
complete lack of any multiplayer
mode, there’s still a load of fun to
be had with “Lego City.” It’s a
must-own for Wii U owners and
Lego fans. The developers at TT
Games have created a fantastical
toy world that proves there’s really
no place like home. Three stars out
of four.

VINEYARDS. Visitors to the Oregon
Shakespeare Festival in the charming Rouge
Valley town of Ashland quickly learn what the
locals already know: Larks-Home Kitchen
Cuisine restaurant in the historic Ashland
Springs Hotel is the place to go for cooked-
from-scratch comfort food with a modern
edge. Executive Chef Damon Jones’ menus
showcase seasonal ingredients delivered daily
from nearby farms and local providers. Try a
salad of “Blue Fox Farm” heirloom tomato,
“Whistling Duck Farm” basil puree and
“Oneleaf Micro Greens” micro arugula, fol-
lowed by an entrée of “Port Orford
Sustainable Seafood” black cod with hazelnut
butter and sides of “Dunbar Farms” sweet
corn salad and “Barking Moon Farms” lightly
wilted spinach. Save room for a warm
“Pennington Farm” raspberry cobbler with a
yogurt biscuit top. Larks’ wine cellar holds an
extensive selection of Oregon wines, such as
Kriselle Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Roxy
Ann Viognier, and Rex Hill Jacob Hart Pinot
Jones said, “My favorite part of working
with local ingredients is the connection with
the farmer, rancher, boat captain or other local
supplier that provide the amazing bounty that
Southern Oregon has to offer. I love the pride
that they show in the ingredients that they are
responsible for and the knowledge I gain by
truly knowing the source. Our customers
enjoy the quality of the ingredients as well as
knowing that the money they are spending is
staying with in our community. Out of town
guests and locals alike enjoy simple, clean,
high quality food.”
Jones, who conceptualized and opened
Larks in May 2005, developed his culinary
skills at Emeril’s of New Orleans, the Country

125,000 people come annually to view the
productions, which run February through
November and include the works of other
major dramatists and new playwrights. The
OSF gift shop has an extensive collection of
books and gifts that relate to all things theatri-
cal, as do the numerous shops and boutiques
that line Ashland’s walkable main street.
MEN. OSF’s 2013 season opened in two of
its indoor theatres with Taming of the Shrew
against a beach boardwalk backdrop; an inti-

Arkin and Carell
work well together
By Sandy Cohen
BURBANK — Alan Arkin is Steve Carell’s idol, in reality
and in their new movie.
The 78-year-old Oscar winner plays the master magician
who helps Carell’s character find his life’s calling in “The
Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” And Carell, a producer of the
film, had everything to do with that.
“When I read it, I immediately thought Alan Arkin has to
play this part,” he said. “If I could do every movie with him, I
The two actors lit up an empty suite at a hotel down the
street from Warner Bros. studios with their warm rapport, rem-
iniscing about working together on “Wonderstone” and their
past projects, “Get Smart” and “Little Miss Sunshine” (for
which Arkin won the supporting actor Oscar).
“The thing about working with Steve is I can’t look at him
anymore,” Arkin said. “I could look at him in the first movie.
The second movie I had a little bit of trouble. By the third
movie I can’t look at him. If I’m doing a scene with him, I
have to focus over here (he looks just past Carell). It gets
It’s easy for Arkin and Carell to make each other laugh.
Carell cracked up when Arkin explained why he refused to
learn any tricks for his role as elderly magician Rance
Holloway, whose at-home magic kit inspires the young
Wonderstone to learn the art of illusion.
“See, I don’t give a damn anymore,” Arkin said. “I’m going
to die soon. It doesn’t matter. I say anything that comes.
“The magician came over to me on the first day and said we
have to work. I said get away from me. Don’t get anywhere
near me,” Arkin recalled. “I said for me to learn what I’m sup-
posed to do in this movie would have taken me four years. I
said it’s not going to happen. Just keep away from me. I said
they’ll do it in CGI and that’s enough.”
With a cast that includes Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Jim
Carrey and James Gandolfini, it was hard not to laugh on set.
“Every day something fun happened,” Carell said.
“It’s crucial that the audience feels that sense that you did
something together,” Arkin said. “That’s why, whenever I see
a flash mob, I start sobbing. It’s art that’s just done for the
sheer joy of it. There’s nothing to gain from it. It’s just to have
fun. It’s deeply healing.”
That feeling permeated the set. Carell said Buscemi was
“buoyant” in the days before shooting began.
“He already had that sense of joy,” he said. “He was doing it
for the fun of it. He has nothing to show, nothing to gain, noth-
ing to prove as an actor. He did it for the fun and the joy of it.
I love that as a producer.”
Carell plays Burt Wonderstone, a stage magician with big
hair, a chest-baring costume and an outsized ego that could fill
a showroom on its own. With his partner, Anton Marvelton
(Buscemi), Wonderstone rules the Las Vegas strip. But a guer-
rilla street magician (Carrey) touting a new brand of extreme
magic threatens his reign, forcing Wonderstone to re-examine
his approach.
Carell was drawn to the character because he wanted to play
“an absolute jerk.”
“I guess I always wanted to wear velour,” he added.
Though magic and moviemaking are similar in some ways
— both rely on performances and tricks — Arkin said they’re
actually opposites.
“(Magicians are) creating something that they want the audi-
ence to believe that they don’t believe themselves,” he said.
“I’m trying to create an alternate reality, so I have to believe.
If we (actors) are doing it well, we’re tricking ourselves.”
Sneaking away as Arkin posed for photos, Carell whispered
to a reporter, “He’s my favorite person.”
By Christy Lemire
The only incredible thing about “The
Incredible Burt Wonderstone” is that way
it makes Steve Carell so thoroughly and
irreparably unlikable. In a film about
magic tricks, this is the most difficult feat
of all.
Even when Carell is playing characters
who are nerdy (“The 40-Year-Old
Virgin”) or needy (”Crazy, Stupid, Love”)
or clueless (TV’s “The Office”) or just
plain odd (“Anchorman: The Legend of
Ron Burgundy”), there’s usually an inher-
ent decency that shines through and
makes him seem relatable, vulnerable,
None of those qualities exists within
Burt Wonderstone, a selfish and flashy Las
Vegas magician who once ruled the Strip
alongside his longtime friend and partner,
Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), but
now finds his act has grown outdated and
unpopular. Even within the confines of a
comedy sketch, where he probably
belongs, Burt would seem one-dimen-
sional and underdeveloped with his hacky
jokes and tacky clothes. Stretched out to
feature length, the shtick becomes nearly
unbearable — until of course, the movie
doles out its obligatory comeuppance, fol-
lowed by redemption, and goes all soft
and nice. By then it’s too little, too late.
“Burt Wonderstone” comes to us from
director Don Scardino, a television veter-
an who’s a two-time Emmy-winner for his
work on “30 Rock,” and “Horrible
Bosses” writers Jonathan Goldstein and
John Francis Daley. It has some scattered
laughs, many of them courtesy of Jim
Carrey as a gonzo, up-and-coming street
performer with a taste for pain, clearly
modeled after the Criss Angel style of
stunt artistry. (The character’s cable TV
show is called “Brain Rapist,” if that gives
you an idea.) And there is some spark to
the scenes between Carell and his “Little
Miss Sunshine” co-star Alan Arkin as the
master magician who inspired Burt as a
lonely child and now lives anonymously
at the nursing home where Burt is relegat-
ed to doing card tricks.
These small joys are few and far
between in a comedy that’s mostly reliant
on repetitive sights gags and increasingly
desperate one-upmanship.
In theory, we’re supposed to feel for
Burt because we see him being bullied in
a flashback at the film’s start. The nerdy,
neglected child of a hard-working single
mom, Burt turned to magic for self-
esteem, and found friendship with the
like-minded and equally geeky Anton.
Their mentor was the old-school Rance
Holloway (Arkin), whose moves they
watched repeatedly on VHS.
Thirty years later, Burt and Anton are
longtime headliners at Bally’s, going
through the same bit night after night with
little inspiration. For totally unexplained
reasons, they hate each other — probably
because Burt has become a dismissive,
abusive jerk. This is not Carell’s strong
suit. Also part of the act is their latest
assistant, Jane, although Burt insists on
calling her Nicole because her real name
simply doesn’t matter to him. The role is a
huge waste of Olivia Wilde, who’s stuck
playing the supportive “girl,” and isn’t
given much chance to show how funny,
sexy or smart she truly is.
Burt and Anton find not just their
friendship but their careers in jeopardy as
Carrey’s daring Steve Gray steals away
the fans and attention with more and more
outlandish acts: ridiculous stuff like sleep-
ing overnight on hot coals and holding his
urine for several days straight. With his
long hair, shirtless, sinewy frame and
charismatic demeanor, Carrey functions
like a manic, subversive Christ figure.
Although he’s too old to be playing an
upstart, he gives it his all, as always.
Meanwhile, the suddenly ubiquitous
James Gandolfini has an amusing line or
two as Burt and Anton’s preening casino
Little magic in ‘Burt Wonderstone’
If Steve Carell’s character is one-note, Steve Buscemi sadly gets even less to do
besides play the sweet, beleaguered second fiddle.

of student services.
Both long- and short-term solutions have
been vetted but are flexible enough to allow for
changes as the district studies other things, like
magnet programs. What’s been approved gives
Barton and the rest of the district staff a basic
framework from which to work when planning.
In the short term, plans include phasing out
students who live outside of the district, offer-
ing bus services from Foster City to College
Park Elementary in northern San Mateo, and
controlling enrollment at each site.
Additionally, the board supported adding class-
rooms to Audubon Elementary School in Foster
City and reassigning a small portion of the San
Mateo Park Elementary School attendance area
to another school or schools as appropriate.
Changes could also come from studying the
district offerings of magnet programs — which
is under way. Among the recommendations
which the board gave the go-ahead on are: sup-
porting an effort to redefine the program focus
at Horrall Elementary School, which currently
has a focus on the visual and performing arts as
well as technology integration, and relocating
the North Shoreview Montessori program to a
facility that can accommodate 600 to 650 stu-
dents, according to a report by DecisionInsite.
The board also wanted to allow flexibility for
ideas that come after the upcoming April 11
study session.
Looking down the road, the district is looking
to rebuild Bowditch Middle School to serve
fifth through eighth grades, repurpose the pre-
viously closed Knolls School and adjust atten-
dance boundaries as needed.
Moving fifth grade students to Bowditch was
the solution put forward last summer by
SCORE, also known as the Superintendent’s
Committee on Overcrowding Relief, as a solu-
tion for Foster City’s space problem. The com-
mittee was created in March 2012 after resi-
dents packed a board meeting to oppose the
idea of the district purchasing commercial
space to house a fourth elementary school in
Foster City. Instead of buying property, the
group suggested making a change on district-
owned property. By moving fifth graders to
middle school, the number of students at ele-
mentary schools would be reduced.
Both Bowditch and Knolls would need work.
Bowditch’s plan would require major work,
which means money through a possible bond
Without the money, room could be created
through implementing a district-wide morn-
ing/afternoon kindergarten program, according
to the report by DecisionInsite. Creating a plan
for such a program is part of the short-term rec-

“They came here to work and to make a bet-
ter life. They were on their way, slowly and
humbly. Then they were taken from us,” said
Denis Pereirade-Macedo, 28, of Sunnyvale,
has been charged with three counts of vehicular
homicide plus felony driving while intoxicated
in the death the family and injury of Amado
Acevedo’s girlfriend, who was critically injured
and remains hospitalized.
Pereirade-Macedo’s blood alcohol level was
.15 several hours after the March 2 crash and
was ultimately pinpointed at .18 so extra alle-
gations based on the level of impairment were
also lodged, Assistant District Attorney Al
Serrato said previously.
Pereirade-Macedo was leaving the scene of a
hit-and-run a block away when he pulled his
BMW into oncoming traffic to maneuver
around the driver he had rear-ended, accelerat-
ed and collided with a red Toyota Tercel pulling
away from the curb to make a U-turn on the
100 block of Eastmoor, Serrato said.
The Osorios were on their way to dinner at
the time, said Velasquez.
Pereirade-Macedo was not injured and
remained at the scene where he was arrested.
He is due back in court March 19 to enter a
plea. Pereirade-Macedo remains in custody
without bail.

proposal is to lower the monthly rent to $1,700
per month for an annual reduction in rent of
$6,563.52. It also calls for the city to use the
$4,000 security deposit to pay delinquent rent
and allow the tenant to pay $100 installments
toward a new deposit of $2,000, according to
the contract.
The move would help the mom-and-pop
business. A community effort was started last
week, at savesams.com, to raise $10,000 in
donations to support the shop that opened in
downtown Burlingame in 1972.
At the same meeting, the council will consid-
er appointing Carol Augustine as the city
finance director/treasurer. Augustine, who was
the finance director of Menlo Park, will be fill-
ing a role left open from when Jesus Nava left
late last year.
In other business, the council will give the
final approval of the process for appointing a
city clerk.
In 2009, Burlingame voters decided the city
clerk would no longer be an elected position.
City Clerk Mary Ellen Kearney, most recently
elected in 2009, would serve through 2013
when the post would become appointed. But
how to appoint the position has yet to be deter-
mined. At its last meeting, the council opted to
have the city manager appoint someone to the
Lastly, the council will hold a public hearing
to discuss joining the county-wide single-use
bag ban.
The council meets 7 p.m. Monday, March 18
at City Hall, 501 Primrose Road.

A Petition for Probate has been filed by
Spencer Crowl. in the Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo. The
Petition for Probate requests that Spenc-
er Crowl. be appointed as personal rep-
resentative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests that the decedent’s
will and codicils, if any, be admitted to
probate. The will and any codicils are
available for examination in the file kept
by the court.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ster the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: April 8, 2013 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. Probate, Superior Court
of California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063. If you object to the granting of
the petition, you should appear at the
hearing and state your objections or file
written objections with the court before
the hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with
the court and mail a copy to the personal
representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four
months from the hearing date noticed
above. You may examine the file kept by
the court. If you are a person interested
in the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-

jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
