OBAMA PRODS BOTH ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS TO RETURN
TO LONG-STALLED NEGOTIATIONS
NOW OPEN!
856 North Delaware St.
San Mateo, CA 94401
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Three years,
two elections, and one Supreme
Court decision after President
Barack Obama signed the
Affordable Care Act, its promise of
health care for the uninsured may be
delayed or undercut in much of the
country because
of entrenched
opposition from
m a n y
Republican state
leaders.
In half the
states, mainly
led by
Democrats, offi-
cials are racing deadlines to connect
uninsured residents to coverage now
only months away. In others it’s as
if “Obamacare” — signed Mar. 23,
2010 — had never passed.
Make no mistake, the federal gov-
ernment will step in and create new
insurance markets in the 26 mostly
red states declining to run their own.
Just like the state-run markets in
mostly Democratic-led states, the
feds will start signing up customers
Oct. 1 for coverage effective Jan. 1.
But they need a broad cross-section
of people, or else the pool will be
stuck with what the government
calls the “sick and worried” — the
costliest patients.
Insurance markets, or exchanges,
are one prong of Obama’s law, pro-
viding subsidized private coverage
for middle-class households who
currently can’t get their own. The
other major piece is a Medicaid
expansion to serve more low-
income people. And at least 13
states have already indicated they
will not agree to that.

End in sight
for mosquito
district case
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Despite a number of charges
being dismissed, the former finance
director at the county’s mosquito
district still faces 10 counts alleging
she embezzled more than $400,000,
some of which was used to pay her
legal bill in an earlier and unrelated
embezzlement from an employer.
Judge Jonathan Karesh dismissed
a number of counts — related to
embezzlement by a public officer
and the allegations of destroying
public records — against 62-year-
old Jo Ann Dearman yesterday,
Chief Deputy District Attorney
Karen Guidotti said. Dearman, who
was allowed to post $250,000 bail
after proving the money was not the
product of either
that alleged
crime or previ-
ous thefts for
which she was
imprisoned, still
faces 10 substan-
tial charges, said
Guidotti.
She is due
back in court for
a pre-trial meet-
ing Friday, March 29 with trial set to
begin April 29. However, defense
attorney Geoff Carr told the court
Thursday that his client will plead
guilty and not go to trial.
“We always said she’d admit guilt
from the beginning,” said Carr, who
added it was just a matter of getting

Good boy gone bad? Justin
Bieber’s adult problems
NEW YORK — In just four years,
Justin Bieber has gone from fielding
innocuous questions
about his haircut to
denying that he’s in
desperate need of
rehab. Bieber’s
grown up and into
tabloid territory, with
his recent troubles
making some ques-
tion whether he’s just
the latest teen star
gone wild.
In what could have been his worst
week ever, the 19-year-old pop star strug-
gled with his breathing and fainted back-
stage at a London show, was taken to a
hospital and then was caught on camera
clashing with a paparazzo. Days earlier,
he was booed by his beloved fans when
he showed up late to a concert.
Those incidents come after photos of
Bieber appearing to smoke marijuana hit
the Web, and some headlines have sug-
gested that the ultra-popular star is going
through a famous Britney Spears-style
meltdown.
Others suggest he’s struggling with a
more common condition: being a teenag-
er.
Donnie Wahlberg, who was just 14
when New Kids on the Block debuted on
the music scene in the late 1980s to wild
fan craze, said he remembers the pressure
and hard times that came with being a
teen celebrity.
“Justin Bieber’s making mistakes that
everyone makes and he’s probably trying
things and exploring things that most kids
his age explore, but the problem is he’s
got 50 paparazzi chasing him around
when he does it,” 43-year-old Wahlberg
said. “When we are 19 and 20, we think
we can take on the world and we do for-
get that there is a lot of life left to live in
front of us, and hopefully he’ll get
through these times and find his way into
a long career and a healthy adulthood.”
Bieber, his manager and his mother
didn’t respond to interview requests for
this story. But the pressure was evident in
the days following his collapse backstage
at the O2 Arena, as the Grammy-nomi-
nated singer wrote on Instagram that he’s
sick of the “countless lies in the press”
and that he would not be heading to
rehab.
“I’ve accomplished more than I
could’ve ever dreamed of, i’m 19 and it
must be scary to some people to think that
this is just the beginning,” he wrote. “I’m
a good person with a big heart. ... All this
isn’t easy. I get angry sometimes. I’m
human. I’m gonna make mistakes.”
Analysis: Despite ouster
plans, Leno leads ratings
NEW YORK — Jay Leno and the
“Tonight” show is one of the few remain-
ing successful programs that NBC has on
its network. So why would its executives
think about getting rid of him?
NBC has con-
firmed that it is build-
ing a new studio for
Jimmy Fallon at its
New York headquar-
ters but refuses to
comment on reports
that Fallon is due to
replace Leno on a
New York-based
“Tonight” show as
early as next year.
With Leno already taking potshots at
network executives regularly in his
monologue, the network risks repeating
the nightmare of 2010, when Conan
O’Brien failed at “Tonight” and NBC
brought Leno back.
“They seem to be making the same
mistakes over and over again with a new
regime,” said Christine Becker, an associ-
ate professor at Notre Dame University
and author of the News For TV Majors
blog. “You kind of wonder what’s in the
water at NBC that is making them make
that decision.”
On its face, such a move would seem
like a proactive strategy from NBC’s new
corporate owners at Comcast Corp.,
known for its decisive decision-making.
Leno, 62, and his longtime rival David
Letterman, 65, are approaching the end of
their long late-night reigns. Fallon, 38
and with his own late-night show getting
critical acclaim, represents the next gen-
eration. So does Jimmy Kimmel, 45, at
ABC, and that network made the strategic
chess move in January to give him the
same time slot as Leno and Letterman.

Mark and Kimberly Klaiber were given 30
days to clear their yard of debris in San
Mateo’s Shoreview neighborhood and spent
the past month with help from volunteers
making several dump runs in an effort to com-
ply with a court-ordered preliminary injunc-
tion.
The couple was previously ordered to
vacate their home as the city asked the court to
declare the property on Lindbergh Street a
“continuing public nuisance.”
A judge ruled in February that the couple
had to clean up the front and backyard of the
home within 30 days and if the family does
not clean up the mess, the city will complete
the work through a contractor and bill the
family, according to the preliminary injunc-
tion.
The time for voluntary compliance has
expired, however, and the city can now
arrange for a vendor to complete the work.
The Klaibers have yet to hear from the city,
however, and are not sure whether all the work
they have done will be enough to comply with
the court order.
Although the family cleared much debris
from the front yard, there are still what
appears to be inoperable vehicles on the prop-
erty, a possible violation of the preliminary
injunction.
Mark Klaiber once even lived in a tent in
front the home while his family was previous-
ly ordered to vacate it because of myriad code
enforcement problems.
A judge ordered the tent removed from the
front of the property also and it is now gone,
but other larger items, such as an old camper
trailer and truck, are still parked in the drive-
way.
The city has had code enforcement issues at
227 Lindbergh St. since at least since 1995,
according to the City Attorney’s Office.
In 2001, the owners began a construction
project and, at least since 2006, the city has
had code enforcement issues with the proper-
ty and sought to declare it a public nuisance.
Some of the most recent code enforcement
violations the family were hit with include use
of the property as a dumping ground; haz-
ardous or unsanitary premises, debris, junk,
garbage and vegetation accumulations on the
property; fire hazards; excessive accumulation
of storage, junk and/or debris on the property;
inadequate exits, excessive accumulation of
storage, junk creating potential safe egress
hazard; and storage in public view, junk,
debris, construction materials stored in public
view.
Two Oakland councilmembers
accused of breaking law
Oakland’s city auditor says two council
members broke city law by interfering with the
bidding process for a major construction proj-
ect.
Courtney Ruby made the allegations against
long-time council members Desley Brooks and
Larry Reid in a report released on Thursday.
Ruby said Brooks and Reid told the city’s
redevelopment staff to seek a bid from a partic-
ular construction company for a roughly $2 mil-
lion contract involving the redevelopment of the
former Oakland Army Base.
The councilmembers’ preferred company did
not get the deal. Reid called the allegations
against him “a flat-out lie.” Brooks said she
raised concerns at a public meeting that staff
had not opened the contract to competitive bid-
ding, but did not interfere.
Ruby said she intends to turn her findings
over to the Alameda County District Attorney’s
Office and the FBI.
Family cleans mess, but is it enough?
City of San Mateo set to decide if family can stay in house
BILL SILVERFARB/DAILY JOURNAL
A San Mateo family was ordered by a judge last month to clean up their property or have the
city do it for them. The family cleared much debris from their Lindbergh Street home over
the past 30 days but they may still face fines or even be forced to vacate their home if the work
was not enough to comply with a preliminary injunction.Left,is the house as it looked yesterday,
and right, is how the yard looked in early January.

Police investigating ATM scam
at U.S. Bank in Burlingame
Police in Hillsborough are investi-
gating a recent ATM scam at a bank
in Burlingame, a police captain said
Thursday.
A card-skimming device attached
to an ATM at the U.S. Bank branch at
1423 Burlingame Ave. was con-
firmed to have compromised the
accounts of several Hillsborough and
Burlingame residents, Hillsborough
police Capt. Doug Davis said.
The first report of fraudulent activ-
ity to a Hillsborough resident’s bank
account was on Jan. 30; the first
involving a Burlingame resident was
on Feb. 20, Davis said.
A card-skimming device, if done
well, can blend in seamlessly with a
bank’s ATM machine, according to
Davis. The device is placed over the
part of the ATM where the card is
inserted, and the scammer can later
use the information stored on the card
to make purchases or steal an identi-
ty, he said.
Through a joint police investiga-
tion, Hillsborough and Burlingame
police detectives confirmed that the
skimmer was in place on the ATM on
Jan. 26 and 27, as well as Feb. 3,
Davis said.
Davis said the skimmer could have
been in place on the dates in between,
but investigators could not confirm it.
There may have been breaches on
other dates, but nothing could be con-
firmed, he said. A typical card-skim-
ming device can be snapped into
place and removed “fairly easily,”
according to Davis.
Anyone who believes their cards
may have been compromised is asked
to review
their bank
records and
report any
suspicious
activity to
their local
p o l i c e
department
or Hillsborough police at (650) 375-
7470.
Wrong-way driver arrested
for second DUI this month
A 60-year-old from San Bruno was
arrested early Wednesday morning
after driving southbound in the north-
bound lanes of Interstate 280.
The California Highway Patrol got
a call about a wrong-way driver trav-
eling on Interstate 280 approaching
Trousdale Boulevard in Burlingame
at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday, accord-
ing to a press release by CHP.
More reports followed that the
vehicle was driving at about 70 mph.
One CHP officer entered Interstate
280 from Woodside Road and used
emergency lights to block both traffic
and the driver’s path near Farm Hill
Boulevard in Redwood City. The
driver, Joseph John Brignolo, of San
Bruno, slowed and finally stopped
against the push bumpers of the
patrol vehicle, according to CHP.
There was no damage sustained to
either vehicle.
Brignolo was arrested and booked
for drunk driving. This was his sec-
ond drunk driving arrest this month.
Brignolo was also arrested by CHP
for drunk driving in the same vehicle
March 7. On that occasion, Brignolo
drove until the left front tire was
down to the calipers.
“I’m very proud of the response
from our officers,” said CHP Capt.
Mike Maskarich, “but the key to this
arrest were the 911 callers. Today,
they are also credited with saving a
life.”
Rifles, handguns, ammo
seized from storage area
Two men were arrested in connec-
tion with weapons that were recovered
from a storage area in Redwood City
on Wednesday, according to police.
At about 11:54 a.m., officers from
the East Palo Alto Police
Department’s Special Duty Unit,
Menlo Park Police Department’s
Narcotic Enforcement Team and state
parole agents developed credible
information that led them to search an
undisclosed storage area in Redwood
City, police said. In a search of the
storage area, officers discovered and
seized seven assault rifles, 10 hand-
guns and more than 5,000 rounds of
ammunition, police said.
Two men were arrested in connec-
tion with the arsenal of weapons and
are being held on parole and proba-
tion violations at the San Mateo
County Jail, according to police.
Police said the investigation was a
result of “Operation SMART,” a col-
laborative agreement designed to
address gang-related violence occur-
ring in Menlo Park and East Palo
Alto.
Lagoon levels rising this week
If the Foster City lagoon looks a lit-
tle fuller this week, it’s not from rain,
but rather due to an annual water
level increase of anywhere from 6 to
8 inches to make way for the summer
recreation season.
Since Monday, officials with the
Foster City Public Works Department
have been adding water to the lagoon
to facilitate recreational use of it.
Activities such as wind surfing and
canoeing are popular on the lagoon in
the summer and spring months.

Catherine (Cathy) Linda Boicelli
Catherine (Cathy) Linda Boicelli died
Friday, March 15, 2013, at Stanford Hospital
in Stanford after a fearless battle with can-
cer, in the company of her family.
“She was a wonderful wife, mother and
Nonni.”
Cathy was 65, born July 1, 1947, in San
Francisco. Her career as a teacher spanned
35 years starting as a preschool teacher and
ending in retirement from Kennedy Middle
School where she taught science and lan-
guage arts.
Cathy leaves behind her teenage sweet-
heart and husband of 45 years, Dan S.
Boicelli. She is also survived by her son,
Tim; daughter Rebecca; grandson, Luciano;
her son Dan and his wife, Stefanie; grand-
daughter, Madeline.
Cathy lived with her husband, Dan, in
Menlo Park for 37 years and most recently,
as a retired couple in The Sea Ranch. She
loved to quilt and read. Anyone who had a
comment to make about Cathy would say,
“She was smart, witty, generous and loved
her family and dogs.”
There will be a memorial service at a later
time for close family members and Cathy’s
dearest friends and teachers. If desired,
donations may be made in her honor to The
American Cancer Society.

SACRAMENTO — The panel that sets
salaries for the governor, lawmakers and state
elected officials indicated Thursday that it was
not inclined to raise pay even if California
runs a budget surplus this year.
The California Citizens Compensation
Commission took no formal action during its
first meeting of the year. It will reconvene
June 13 to decide whether it will impose a pay
cut, restore pay or maintain the status quo.
The commission’s chairman, Thomas
Dalzell, said he would be surprised if there are
enough votes on the seven-member panel for
an increase. “Reading these commissioners, I
think it would be unseemly to increase the first
year out on a surplus,” he said.
State finance department figures show tax
revenue is running nearly 9 percent above
forecast as of February, or about $4.7 billion
more than anticipated. Still, Dalzell said the
economy remains volatile and that pay
increases for elected officials are not a priori-
ty for taxpayers.
The commission voted to cut salaries in
2009, 2011 and last year, when it reduced
elected officials’ pay by 5 percent, effective
last December. The last reduction dropped the
governor’s pay from a high of $212,179 in
2008 to $165,288.
The base salary for state lawmakers has
dropped from $116,208 five years ago to
$90,526. Most of them supplement that by
taking per diem payments, which typically
add about $30,000 a year to their salaries.
In 2011, the commission also voted to elim-
inate state-owned vehicles for lawmakers’
unlimited use. Until then, California was the
only state in the nation providing vehicles to
its rank-and-file lawmakers.
Panel likely to maintain pay for elected officials

WASHINGTON — Gun control legislation
the Senate debates next month will include an
expansion of federal background checks for
firearms buyers, Majority Leader Harry Reid
said Thursday in a victory for advocates of gun
restrictions.
The announcement underscores that
Democrats intend to take an aggressive
approach in the effort to broaden the checks,
currently required for transactions involving
federally licensed firearms dealers but not pri-
vate sales at gun shows or online.
President Barack Obama and many supporters
of curbing guns consider an expansion of the
system to private gun sales to be the most effec-
tive response lawmakers could take in the wake
of December’s elementary
school massacre in
Newtown, Conn. The sys-
tem is designed to keep
guns from criminals, people
with serious mental prob-
lems and others considered
potentially dangerous.
The overall gun measure
will also include legislation
boosting penalties for ille-
gal gun trafficking and modestly expanding a
grant program for school security, said Reid, D-
Nev. Its fate remains uncertain, and it will all but
certainly need Republican support to survive.
Reid said that during Congress’ upcoming
two-week break, he hopes senators will strike a
bipartisan compromise on broadening back-
ground checks. Without a deal, he indicated the
gun bill would include a stricter version
approved this month by the Senate Judiciary
Committee and authored by Sen. Chuck
Schumer, D-N.Y., expanding the system to vir-
tually all private gun transactions with few
exceptions.
“I want to be clear: In order to be effective,
any bill that passes the Senate must include
background checks,” Reid said in a written
statement.
Opponents including the National Rifle
Association say background checks are easily
sidestepped by criminals and threaten creation
of a government file on gun owners — which is
illegal under federal law.
“We remain as committed as we have been to
opposing gun bans. History shows us that gun
bans don’t work to reduce crimes,” said Andrew
Arulanandam, an NRA spokesman.

a mosque in the heart of the Syrian capital
Thursday, killing a top

U.N. to probe alleged
chemical weapons use in Syria
UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations
will investigate the possible use of chemical
weapons in Syria, which would amount to a
crime against humanity, Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon announced Thursday.
The investigation could be broader than the
Syrian government’s request for an independ-
ent probe of a purported chemical weapons
attack on Tuesday. Ban said he was aware of
allegations of other, similar attacks and hoped
the probe would ultimately help secure Syria’s
chemical weapons stockpile.
The secretary-general said investigators
would look into Syria’s allegation that rebels
carried out a chemical weapons attack on
Khan al-Assal village in northern Aleppo
province.

JERUSALEM — Insisting “peace is possi-
ble,” President Barack Obama on Thursday
prodded both Israelis and Palestinians to
return to long-stalled negotiations with few, if
any, pre-conditions, softening his earlier
demands that Israel stop building settlements
in disputed territory.
The president made his appeal just hours
after rockets fired from Hamas-controlled
Gaza landed in a southern Israeli border town,
a fresh reminder of the severe security risks
and tensions that have stymied peace efforts
for decades.
Obama, on his second day in the Middle
East, shuttled between Jerusalem and
Ramallah, reaching out to the public as well as
political leaders. He offered no new policies
or plans for reopening peace talks but urged
both sides to “think anew” about the
intractable conflict and break out of the “for-
mulas and habits that have blocked progress
for so long.”
“Peace is possible,” Obama declared during
an impassioned speech to young people in
Jerusalem. “I’m not saying it’s guaranteed. I
can’t even say that it is more likely than not.
But it is possible.”
The deep disputes dividing the Israelis and
Palestinians have remained much the same
over the years, and include deciding the status
of Jerusalem, defining borders and resolving
refugee issues. Palestinians have been particu-
larly incensed over Israeli settlements in dis-
puted territories, and the Israelis’ continued
construction has also drawn the condemnation
of the United States and other nations.

WASHINGTON — Moving on two fronts,
the Republican-controlled House on Thursday
voted to keep the government running for the
next six months while pushing through a tea-
party flavored budget for next year that would
shrink the government by another $4.6 trillion
over the next decade.
The spending authorization on its way to the
White House for President Barack Obama’s
signature leaves in place $85 billion in spend-
ing cuts to the Pentagon and domestic pro-
grams. The result will be temporary furloughs
for hundreds of thousands of federal workers
and contractors over the next six months and
interrupted, slower or halted services and aid
for many Americans.
The nonbinding GOP budget plan for 2014
and beyond calls for a balanced budget in 10
years’ time and sharp cuts in safety-net programs
for the poor and other domestic programs.
Thursday’s developments demonstrated the
split nature of this year’s budget debate.
Competing nonbinding budget measures by
each party provide platforms for political
principles; at the same time Capitol Hill lead-
ers forged a bipartisan deal on carrying out the
government’s core responsibilities, in this
case providing money for agencies to operate
and preventing a government shutdown.
The GOP budget proposal, similar to previ-
ous plans offered by Budget Committee
Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., demonstrates
that it’s possible, at least mathematically, to
balance the budget within a decade without
raising taxes. But to do so Ryan, his party’s
vice presidential nominee last year, assumes
deep cuts that would force millions from pro-
grams for the poor like food stamps and
Medicaid and cut almost 20 percent from
domestic agency budget levels assumed less
than two years ago.

Nurses kick off 10-day strike
Thousands of nurses at eight Bay Area
hospitals began a 10-day strike against Sutter
Health the week of March 22, 2008 over
problems with patient care, medical redlin-
ing and health care for nurses, the
strikers claim.
The 10-day strike was
approved earlier that
month and was the
third by local nurses
in six months,
according to the California
Nurses Association. Many nurses
from Mills-Peninsula Health Services in
Burlingame and San Mateo were planning to
walk out. Two hundred replacement nurses
were brought in to keep hospital services
running during the walkout.
A replacement crew with 200 nurses was
in place for the duration of the strike, Mills-
Peninsula officials said.
Local biotech leader
indicted on federal charges
South San Francisco biotechnology execu-

Harkonen, chief executive officer of South
San Francisco-based CoMentis, Inc., was
indicted on wire fraud and misleading mar-
keting under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic
Act. Charges included Harkonen knowingly
promoting Actimmune as a treatment for the
fatal disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis,
known as IPF, without approval from the
Federal Drug Administration as a safe treat-
ment to boost drug sales. At the time in
question, Harkonen was the chief executive
officer of Brisbane-based InterMune, Inc.
which developed the drug.
Firefighters reach contract
An 18-month firefighters contract was
reached in Millbrae the week of March 22,
2008 after a couple weeks of negotiations.
Negotiations began in February 2008
between the city and the Millbrae
Firefighters Local 2400 for the contract that
expired Dec. 31, 2007. An agreement was
reached Feb. 19, 2008 then was approved by
the union the week prior.
The agreement called for an approximate 5
percent “catch-up” increase to bring the
average
Millbrae fire-
fighters closer
to the county average, Millbrae officials said.
The rate brought a competitive rate for the
firefighters but was still a bit shy of county
average.
Bay Meadows
details close to approval
The first section of Bay Meadows develop-

week of March 22, 2008 when the Planning
Commission reviewed plans for the seventh
time in as many months.
The entire 83.5-acre project was set to
replace the existing Bay Meadows race track
bordered by Highway 101, State Route 92,
Delaware Street and Hillsdale Boulevard. It
encompasses 17 blocks and was slated to
bring 1,067 new residential units, 750,000
square feet of commercial and 100,000
square feet of retail space.
It was broken up into three Site Plan and
Architectural Reviews — or SPARs — for
easier review. Each SPAR plan provided the
city with a specific understanding of the
number, type and location of buildings on
the site.
The Planning Commission reviewed SPAR
1 the previous summer. The area is approxi-
mately 21 acres with nine blocks near the
train station.

Teacher merit pay, not
across-the-board raises
Editor,
Strike time is down time. No one
wins. Teachers lose the time that they
are responsible for students learning the
curriculum at the grade level and/or
subject they are teaching. Students lose
the continuity of having the same
instructor who knows the student’s
achievement level and should be provid-
ing the tools for the student to further
their educational achievements. Enough
other things disrupt the school year, a
strike doesn’t need to be added to the
pile.
Let’s utilize merit increases instead of
across-the-board raises. Two parties
enter into the learning process, the
teacher/student. Both have the responsi-
bility to work together to achieve the
educational goal. Giving across-the-
board raises to everyone is to reward the
lazy or ineffective and to penalize the
achievers. There are good/bad teachers;
good/bad students just as there is
good/bad in any profession/industry.
The article (“Teachers give green
light to possible strike” in the March 20
edition of the Daily Journal) doesn’t
make mention the recent overall high
school achievement statistics that the
CDE is putting out which reveal an
underachieving status by layman’s
interpretation. Elementary schools feed
into the high schools so these statistics
reflect what we might call an “after the
fact” report.
Whether this is a reflection of unhap-
py, underpaid teachers; budget cuts,
socioeconomic changes; or students not
pulling their weight remains to be seen.
Giving an across-the-board raise is not a
solution to the problem. Merit increases
seem to be an effective solution. Put
those continuing education units to
work.
Similar to state officials working on
the budget: No production, no pay.
More production, more pay equals
results.

Plastic bag ban
hurts more than it helps
Editor,
Narrowly focused and over enthusias-
tic “protectors of the environment” have
convinced many Peninsula city councils
to enact an ordinance regarding the use
of plastic bags by our businesses. While
the intent to reduce plastic bag pollution
is admirable, the sample ordinance they
have promoted is overreaching, has pro-
visions that are probably illegal and cer-
tainly creates unnecessary difficulties
for our struggling small businesses as
well as their customers.
The ordinance not only prohibits
plastic bags, but mandates that busi-
nesses charge their customers a mini-
mum specified amount for a recycled
content paper bag. Initially the mini-
mum amount is 10 cents. Later on it
increases to 25 cents. And ladies —
would you be happy with the store
stuffing your brand-new party dress into
a paper bag?
Since when does any government in
this country have the authority to tell
people they may not give something
freely but have to charge for it? Note
that the charge is not a “tax.” The
money is retained by the merchant (As
a tax, the ordinance would have been
illegal without a vote). How can anyone
believe that the payment requirement is
a legal mandate or that every plastic bag
is a mistake? The basic intent to remove
polluting plastic bags is admirable, but
the method is illegal and ill-advised.
I sincerely hope that merchants will
have the courage to refuse to collect the
mandated fees, and that the city coun-
cils will undo, or at the very least intel-
ligently revise, these poorly thought-out
regulations.

Letters to the editor
Orange County Register
T
ransparent government is
essential to democracy.
“Transparency is such a won-
derful word,” James Mayer told us; he’s
the executive director of California
Forward, a reform group that just
released a new report, “The State of
Transparency in California in 2013.”
“It’s not about knocking on a door.
It’s about looking through a window,”
he said.
Despite the federal Freedom of
Information Act and the California
Public Records Act, journalists and
other citizens frequently have been
frustrated in attempts to get government
documents to see what’s going on.
Usually, forms have to be filled out and
delivered to a government bureaucrat,
then copying costs must be paid. The
information could be about budgets and
salaries; agency policies and implemen-
tation; and records of meetings.
Mr. Mayer’s metaphor is excellent:
Instead of people having to knock on a
government door — sometimes pound-
ing on it for days — the information
should be readily available on the
Internet. “This report really is emblem-
atic about a bigger conversation,” he
said. “It’s turning around the relation of
government to the people, who had to
ask for the information. The new para-
digm is that government has an obliga-
tion to keep it open, keep it available.
Now, it’s hide-and-seek. It’s trying to
find a needle in a haystack. The public
should be engaged.”
For the 2013 report, California
Forward found some decent progress in
transparency in California. “Voters
experienced the first dividends of citi-
zen-drawn legislative districts, and
robust new tools were launched to track
compensation of public employees,” the
report found.
A good example of this transparency
is the website of Orange County gov-
ernment, ocgov.com. On the front page,
listed under the “Popular” heading, is
“Employment Compensation &
Employment Contracts.” Clicking there
leads to documents of the compensation
of county employees. That’s a big
improvement from the old method,
where we went to the county offices in
Santa Ana to pick up a large spread-
sheet.
The report continued, “At the other
end of the spectrum, the scandal at the
California Department of Parks and
Recreation brought the entire state
financial reporting structure under
scrutiny.” And it noted that state
Controller John Chiang is busy putting
more of his department’s data online, in
particular, information on the compen-
sation of state and local officials.
More can be done. The report decried
something we have written about many
times: the “gut and amend” process in
the California Legislature, in which a
bill’s contents are replaced, sometimes
completely, in the waning days of a leg-
islative session, with citizens — and
even the legislators themselves — hav-
ing little or no notice or time to read
the new wording before a vote is taken.
We favor a reform that, for example,
would require that a bill must be print-
ed and put online at least three days
before it is put to a vote.
All in all, California, the state that
still dominates the U.S. Internet indus-
try, is moving in the direction of putting
online more of the information that citi-
zens, after all, have paid for. The veils
of secrecy all need to be pulled aside.
We favor requiring that a bill must be
printed and put online at least three
days before it is put to a vote in the
Legislature.
Government gradually becoming less opaque Our adult schools
deserve support
C
onsolidation of government is always a worth-
while venture yet sometimes it takes a legislative
process to see what will work and what will not.
So is the case with Gov. Jerry Brown’s idea of moving
adult education from K-12 to community colleges.
Brown’s education funding
revamp launched in January
included the elimination of
several areas of categorical
funding in place of a new sys-
tem called Local Control
Funding Formula which
would keep a solid base line
for all districts but allocate
funds to those with a certain
segment of English-language
learners or low-income fami-
lies. In doing so, he also pro-
posed to shift $300 million to
community colleges to cover
adult education programs
since colleges already provide similar classes to some
offered at adult schools. However, it’s not exactly a direct
match.
And there are a litany of reasons for that. And so it was
with great appreciation that the Assembly Budget
Subcommittee on Education Finance voted unanimously
Tuesday to put the kibosh on the proposal and instead
emphasize that adult education needed to be reworked but
not diminished. Hallelujah!
First, the merits of adult education. Adult schools are
often the first place many people look to for entry into
secondary education. They provide courses in career and
technical education and allow English learners to adapt
well to our culture and earn citizenship. They provide a
safety net by having classes for students to get their high
school equivalence diploma. And they have flexible
schedules for those who have other obligations such as a
job or responsibilities at home. And they offer a much-
lower per-pupil cost than community colleges. Case in
point is the San Mateo Adult School located just to the
north of the North Central San Mateo neighborhood. It is
a perfect location for such a school and provides neigh-
borhood resources for a large portion of the population,
many of whom are working class and/or new to this coun-
try. It also provides fitness classes for seniors who may
not easily get to other locations. Put simply, this is a place
for people who want to better themselves, and should be
supported in its current location in any way possible.
Transferring the responsibility to the community college
district would be no small task and could, emphasis on
could, mean the relocation of the central campus else-
where. In addition, community colleges are not necessari-
ly a direct match for such classes. The one common
denominator is that they both serve adults. However, in
response to budget cuts, California community colleges
have moved away from lifelong learners and are now
focusing on university transfer track students.
Incorporating a new set of students outside of that focus
is in itself problematic. And community colleges are not
in the business of ESL or citizenship classes which is a
major component of adult school education.
In trying to solve a large problem, the governor may
have created a new problem in a segment of the education
community that does not have the largest voice. Adult
school students do not hold sit-ins on their campus or
pitch tents in their quad to call attention to their concerns.
And they do not have the arsenal of concerned parents
that K-12 has. But it is a critical component of our society
that provides many useful services to those seeking a leg
up or enrichment. While the Assembly subcommittee vote
is cause for cheer, it’s not over by any means. The state
budget and the governor’s reform proposal is a long and
involved process that could take a hard left or right at any
turn. It is worth paying attention to, and we will continue

Big movers
By Daniel Wagner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Stocks closed lower on Wall Street
Thursday after Oracle’s weak sales
results weighed down big U.S. technolo-
gy companies. Traders also worried
about Cyprus running out of time to
avoid bankruptcy.
Major indexes followed European
markets lower at the open and remained
solidly negative all day. The Dow Jones
industrial average fell as much as 129
points by mid-afternoon before paring
the loss to close down 90 points.
All three major indexes felt the drag
from technology stocks after Oracle
reported an unexpected decline in sales
in its fiscal third quarter. Oracle’s results
have an outsized impact on other tech-
nology stocks because it reports earlier
than most of its peers.
European markets had closed sharply
lower. The main indexes in Paris and
Frankfurt fell 1.4 percent and 0.9 per-
cent, respectively, on fear that the crisis
in Cyprus will intensify. The European
Central Bank has threatened to end
emergency support of the nation’s banks
next week unless leaders can secure
more funding.
Cyprus must raise about $7.5 billion in
the next four days to avoid bankruptcy.
Several plans have failed, including a
proposal to tax deposits held by the
nation’s banks. If the Mediterranean
banking haven is unable to secure a
bailout, its banks will fail and it could be
forced to leave the euro currency.
Worries about that scenario first hit stock
markets Monday.
“It’s amazing how quickly things can
turn back to Cyprus and Europe,” said
Oliver Cross, director of research with
Carolinas Investment Consulting LLC in
Charlotte, N.C. Cross spent his day
focused on headlines from Europe,
rather than digesting happier news about
hiring and home sales in the U.S.
Oracle was the biggest decliner in the
S&P 500 index; Juniper Networks also
fell steeply. The S&P 500 closed down
12.91 points, or 0.8 percent, at 1,545.80.
The Dow dropped 90.24 points, or 0.6
percent, to 14,421.49. Cisco was the
Dow’s biggest loser, followed by H-P.
IBM also lost ground.
The Nasdaq, which is weighted heavi-
ly toward tech stocks, fell a full percent-
age point. It closed down 31.59 points at
3,222.60.
Despite being down for the week, the
Dow remains near a record high. Its run-
up has been powered by optimism about
the U.S. economy and the Federal
Reserve’s easy-money policies. The
Dow is up 2.6 percent this month. The
S&P 500 has gained 2.1 percent in
March, and is 20 points from its own all-
time high set in October 2007.
Given the market’s recent strength,
many analysts have been anticipating a
sharp decline at the first sign of bad
news — whether from Europe, corporate
America or the U.S. economy.
The pullback has not materialized,
said Troy Logan, managing director and
senior economist at Warren Financial
Service in Exton, Penn. He said today’s
losses could have been much worse.
“We thought Cyprus would be the per-
fect opportunity for the market to step
back, but it looks like the market has
shrugged it off,” Logan said.
Many of his firm’s customers are seek-
ing higher-risk investments with higher
potential returns, Logan said — an indi-
cation that stocks may keep rising.
The U.S. job and housing markets
continue to improve gradually, accord-
ing to economic reports released
Thursday morning. The Labor
Department said the number of people
claiming new unemployment benefits
last week was roughly flat near a five-
year low. Sales of existing homes rose in
February to a three-year high, according
to the National Association of Realtors.
The yield on the 10-year U.S.
Treasury note fell to 1.92 percent from
1.96 percent earlier Thursday as demand
increased for ultra-safe investments.
In the tumbling tech sector, Oracle fell
$3.47, or 9.7 percent, to $32.30. Juniper
dropped 42 cents, or 2.2 percent, to
$18.89. Cisco list 83 cents, or 3.8 per-
cent, to $20.84. H-P declined 60 cents,
or 2.6 percent, to $22.32.
Weak Oracle sales, Cyprus weigh on stocks
Drivers endure high gas prices despite U.S. oil boom
By Jonathan Fahey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — The U.S. is increasing
its oil production faster than ever, and
American drivers are guzzling less gas.
But you’d never know it from the price
at the pump.
The national average price of gasoline
is $3.69 per gallon and forecast to creep
higher, possibly approaching $4 by May.
“I just don’t get it,” says Steve
Laffoon, a part-time mental health work-
er, who recently paid $3.59 per gallon to
fill up in St. Louis.
U.S. oil output rose 14 percent to 6.5
million barrels per day last year — a
record increase. By 2020, the nation is
forecast to overtake Saudi Arabia as the
world’s largest crude oil producer. At the
same time, U.S. gasoline demand has
fallen to 8.7 million barrels a day, its
lowest level since 2001, as people switch
to more fuel-efficient cars.
So is the high price of gasoline a sig-
nal that markets aren’t working proper-
ly?
Not at all, experts say. The laws of
supply and demand are working, just not
in the way U.S. drivers want them to.
U.S. drivers are competing with driv-
ers worldwide for every gallon of gaso-
line. As the developing economies of
Asia and Latin America expand, their
energy consumption is rising, which
puts pressure on fuel supplies and prices
everywhere else.
The U.S. still consumes more oil than
any other country, but demand is weak
and imports are falling. That leaves
China, which overtook the U.S. late last
year as the world’s largest oil importer,
as the single biggest influence on global
demand for fuels. China’s consumption
has risen 28 percent in five years, to 10.2
million barrels per day last year.
“There’s an 800-pound gorilla in the
picture now — the Chinese economy,”
says Patrick DeHaan, chief petroleum
analyst at the price-tracking service
GasBuddy.com.
U.S. refiners are free to sell gasoline
and diesel to the highest bidder around
the world. In 2011, the U.S. became a
net exporter of fuels for the first time in
60 years. Mexico and Canada are the
two biggest destinations for U.S. fuels,
followed by Brazil and the Netherlands.
Two other factors are making gasoline
expensive:
• High oil prices. Brent crude, a
benchmark used to set the price of oil for
many U.S. refiners, is $108 per barrel. It
hasn’t been below $100 per barrel since
July. On average, the price of crude is
responsible for two-thirds of the price of
gasoline, according to the Energy
Department.
• Refinery shutdowns. Refineries tem-
porarily close in the winter, when driv-
ing declines, to perform annual mainte-
nance. That lowers gasoline inventories
and sends prices higher nearly every
year in the late winter and spring.
U.S. oil output rose 14 percent to 6.5 million barrels per day
last year — a record increase. By 2020, the nation is forecast
to overtake Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest crude oil
producer. At the same time, U.S. gasoline demand has fallen
to 8.7 million barrels a day,its lowest level since 2001,as people
switch to more fuel-efficient cars.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — A federal judge
ordered an Internet news clipping serv-
ice to stop reselling stories from the
Associated Press, saying the ability of
news organizations to perform an
“essential function of democracy” was
jeopardized when a company is allowed
to “free ride” on the costly work of oth-
ers.
Media observers say the ruling against
Meltwater U.S. Holdings Inc. and its
Meltwater News Service, if upheld on
appeal, could provide strong protection
for the news industry as it struggles to
survive in an Internet age.
U.S. District Judge Denise Cote
rejected Meltwater’s claims that its use
of Web stories drawn from a scan of
162,000 news websites from more than
190 countries was a fair use of copy-
right-protected material.
“Through its use of AP content and
refusal to pay a licensing fee, Meltwater
has obtained an unfair commercial
advantage in the marketplace and direct-
ly harmed the creator of expressive con-
tent protected by the Copyright Act,”
Cote said.
She said in a ruling released to
lawyers in the case Wednesday and to
the public on Thursday that investigat-
ing and writing about newsworthy
events worldwide was expensive, and
copyright laws permits the AP to earn
money to pay for it.
“Permitting Meltwater to take the fruit
of AP’s labor for its own profit, without
compensating AP, injures AP’s ability to
perform this essential function of
democracy,” Cote wrote.
In a statement, Meltwater called the
ruling “at odds with a variety of prior
decisions that have paved the way for
today’s Internet,” and said it would
appeal.
The judge noted that commercial
Internet news clipping services like
Meltwater perform an important func-
tion for their customers, but that “does
not outweigh the strong public interest in
the enforcement of the copyright laws or
justify allowing Meltwater to free ride
on the costly news gathering and cover-
age work performed by other organiza-
tions. Moreover, permitting Meltwater to
avoid paying licensing fees gives it an
unwarranted advantage over its competi-
tors who do pay licensing fees.”
Meltwater is a 12-year-old electronic
news clipping service that helps its
clients monitor how they are covered in
the press. In its lawsuit, the AP alleged
that Meltwater News had been pilfering
current and past material from the AP
and other news providers without paying
licensing fees.

Acura recalling TSX sedans for corrosion
TORRANCE — Honda Motor Co.’s luxury Acura brand
is recalling 76,000 TSX sedans in 22 cold-weather states
because corrosion could cause them to stall.
TSX sedans from the 2004 through 2008 model years are
included in the recall.
Acura says that in places where road salt is heavily used,
salt and water can saturate the carpet under the dashboard
that covers the vehicle’s electrical control unit. Salty water
can corrode the metal case that houses the electrical unit. If
that corrosion damages the wiring in the unit, the vehicle
may stall.
Acura says no crashes or injuries related to the problem
have been reported.
Dell buyout intrigue
heightens as deadline looms
SAN FRANCISCO — Michael Dell is about to find out if
other bidders think his company is worth more than he does.
The answer could come Friday, which marks the end of a
45-day period that Dell Inc.’s board of directors settled on to
allow for offers that might top a Feb. 5 agreement to sell the
personal computer maker to CEO Michael Dell and a group
of investors for $24.4 billion.
With the deadline looming, buyout specialist Blackstone
Group is emerging as the most likely candidate to trump the
current bid of $13.65 per share.

MIDNIGHT STRIKES FOR ST. MARY’S: THERE WILL BE NO CINDERELLA RUN FOR THE GAELS, WHO WERE BEATEN BY MEMPHIS >>> PAGE 13
By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
When the Hillsdale softball team
scratched out a run in the bottom of
the first inning against Carlmont ace
Rebecca Faulkner, there was a
stunned silence on the Scots’ bench.
After all, it was only the second
game this season Faulkner had
allowed a run.
The Scots quickly regrouped,
however, and turned on their
offense. They tied the score in the
second inning and took the lead for
good with a three-run third to post a
5-2 win over the Knights Thursday
afternoon in San Mateo.
“We hadn’t seen their pitcher, but
I had [Faulkner] and I have confi-
dence in our offense,” said Carlmont
coach Jim Liggett. “When you get
behind, you can start stressing. If we
can’t score two runs, we don’t
deserve to win.”
It’s almost a given Faulkner will
shut down the opposition and she
improved to 9-1 on the season with
a complete game, five hitter, striking
out 11 along the way and not allow-
ing a walk. Only two of Hillsdale’s
hits left the infield — a solid single
to right field by Riley Wells and an
Arianna Richwood single, also to
right field. The other three Knights’
hits were of the infield variety.
“I don’t think we played that bad,”
said Hillsdale coach Randy
Metheany. “My kids are young and
they don’t know how to win yet.”

SAN JOSE — All California
needed was a short trip south to feel
right at home in the NCAA tourna-
ment.
Allen Crabbe had 19 points and
nine rebounds, reserve Robert
Thurman scored all 12 of his points
on dunks and 12th-seeded
California held off fifth-seeded
UNLV 64-61 in the second round
Thursday.
Buoyed by the crowd support of a
strong contingent so close to
Berkeley, the Golden Bears (21-11)
held the Runnin’ Rebels (25-10)
without a basket for more than 11
minutes in the second half. Cal
turned a tie game into a nine-point
lead during that stretch and with-
stood a late UNLV push for its first
tournament win since 2010.
The Rebels rallied to within a
point in the final seconds before
missed free throws and a costly
inbounds pass sealed the loss.
Cal will play Saturday against the
Syracuse-Montana winner.

SHP’s Segre was a difference maker

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
It’s an average afternoon on the vast
and wide-open plains of your local high
soccer pitch. The sun is out. The ball is
rolling. And the game, in its pendulum-
esque nature, has given into a flow where
the teams play that hunter-then-hunted
chess match in hopes of scoring a goal.
All seems calm on the surface. Normal.
You relax.
And that is exactly what Sacred Heart
Prep’s Andrew Segre, one of the season’s
most opportunistic predators, was wait-
ing for.
You blinked. Now he’s behind your
defense. And he’s about to eat up your
goalkeeper.
There is something almost perfect
about what Sacred Heart Prep head soc-
cer coach Armando Del Rio calls Segre’s
“predatory ability.” The junior is one of
the most unassuming young men you’ll
ever talk to. Even as a deadly striker,

Clutch hitting was the difference in yester-
day’s two-game series finale between South
City and Woodside.
The Warriors (1-1 PAL Ocean, 3-8 overall)
produced some clutch swings of the bat, while
the Wildcats (1-1, 4-8) didn’t, as South City
rallied late to cruise to a 6-1 win. Warriors sen-
ior Clay Wayman was 2 for 3 with three RBIs,
including the go-ahead double in the fourth.
Senior right-hander Josue Rangal worked out
of early jams and overcame intermittent bouts
of wildness to go the distance, evening his
record at 2-2. Woodside freshman Jamie
Kruger worked five innings while taking the
loss.
The two teams have a lot in common, with
plenty of underclassmen talent trying to get up
to varsity speed. But South City may have
found its stride in the fourth inning yesterday,
relying on clutch hits from Wayman and soph-
omore shortstop Jesus Jimenez. Junior third
baseman Brian Ortiz also came up with a piv-
otal RBI single to spark a four-run rally in the
fifth.
After losing Tuesday’s Ocean Division open-
er to Woodside 11-4, South City manager
Daryl Semien is hopeful the clutch hitting is a
sign that his team can overcome its slow start
this season.
“We’ve lost a couple close ones,” Semien
said. “And we’re just young. We’re trying to get
to the right place and find ourselves. It was a
good win — a good split.”
Woodside had some grand opportunities to
score in the early innings but could not capital-
ize. In the first, the Wildcats loaded the bases
with no outs, but Rangal buckled down and
kept the ball on the infield to escape unscathed
by stranding the bases loaded. Woodside
stranded six runners in the game, and also hit
into two double plays.
“We just didn’t capitalize,” Woodside man-
ager Tim Faulkner said. “With runners in scor-
ing position, we just didn’t hit them in. That
was the deal.”
South City did, though. Kruger cruised
through the first three innings on the hill for
Woodside, setting down the first seven batters
he faced. And at the plate, Kruger got his team
on the board with an RBI single to plate Brad
Degnan, giving Woodside a 1-0 edge.
In the fourth though, Kruger ran into one
minor bout of wildness, and it cost him. With
one out, the right-hander hit South City cleanup
batter Andrew Pelzi, then threw the next pitch
to the backstop to move Pelzi into scoring posi-
tion. With two outs, Jimenez lashed a single to
center to score Pelzi, tying the game 1-1.
Wayman continued the rally with the loudest
swing of the afternoon, driving an RBI double
over the head of Woodside left fielder Matt
Hennefarth to give South City a 2-1 lead.
“That felt great,” Wayman said. “At first I
saw the [left fielder] and it looked like he was
going to catch it, but then I was like, ‘Yeah. It’s
over his head.’”
Pitching with a lead for the first time in the
game, Rangal responded with a rocky fifth by
walking two batters, setting the table for
Kruger in the cleanup spot. The big freshman
put a good lick on a fastball, but hit a smash
right at Warriors second baseman Tyler Keahi,
who nabbed it and turned an inning-ending
double play.
In the bottom of the fifth, South City started
another two-out rally to erupt for four runs.
Keahi reached on a fielder’s choice, then with
two outs the junior stole second. Pelzi worked
a walk and Ortiz followed with a groundball
smash up the middle that Woodside second
baseman Jordan Benavides got a glove on with
a backhand, but the ball was hit so hard it
glanced of Benavides’ glove and into shallow
center, allowing Keahi to score from second.
Jimenez reached on an infield error before
Wayman blooped a two-run single to right.
Jimenez then scored on an infield error off the
bat of Rangal.
Rangal closed strong to notch his first com-
plete game of the year. The senior allowed just
one base runner over the final two frames, but
faced the minimum by inducing a groundball
double play to end it.
“He’s a proverbial horse,” Semien said.
“[Rangal] can throw a lot of innings — a lot of
pitches. He does work [deep counts] some-
times. But he stays strong on the mound. He
was still strong out there [late in the game] so
he wanted the ball. He grabbed it and took it
and did what he’s supposed to do.”
With Wayman’s productive day, he moves
into the team lead with 10 RBIs on the season.
Not bad for a kid who quit the game of baseball
for two years. In middle school, Wayman relo-
cated from South San Francisco to Martinez,
where he focused on wrestling as a lean 95-
pounder. Since moving back to South San
Francisco, though, he has rededicated himself
solely to baseball.
Now the 155-pound senior plays all year
round, and has finally cracked the varsity line-
up as an everyday player as a senior.
“He’s been a surprise,” Semien said. “He’s
been a guy who’s been kind of a project for the
last four years. But he’s kept at it and played his
way into a starting position. He’s been one of
our best bats at the plate.”
South City earns split with Woodside
By Gary Schatz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Johnny Cueto
insists there’s still enough time to get set for
opening day.
Derek Norris homered as the Oakland
Athletics roughed up Cueto and beat the
Cincinnati Reds 10-9 Thursday.
Cueto allowed five runs on five hits and two
walks in 1 2-3 inning.
The Reds have not announced their opening
day starter, but Cueto’s turn would come up
then. He blamed his mechanics for the tough
outing.
“My fastball was up and out over the plate,”
Cueto said. “I was flying open. I knew what
was happening but couldn’t correct it. In the
bullpen all my pitches were down.”
Cueto said he had no concerns about being
ready for the opener against the Los Angeles
Angels on April 1.
“I’m ready,” Cueto said.
Norris added a single to increase his spring
average to .379. Josh Reddick and Chris
Young hit doubles in the A’s five-run second
inning. Jed Lowrie had two hits for Oakland.
Mark Prior, trying to make another come-
back, pitched a scoreless inning for the Reds.
He struck out one and hit a batter.
“It was good to be out there. It was fun,”
Prior said. “I was trying to throw strikes. I was
a little up, a little rushed.”
“It was the first time doing it in a big league
environment in a couple years. It was good.
Two years ago when I was in camp with the
Yankees, I got to face hitters in spring, nine
outings that went pretty good. It was a good
test for me to see if I could get big league hit-
ters out,” he said.
The 32-year-old righty, who hasn’t pitched
in the majors since 2006, was in Triple-A for
Boston last year.
“After pitching in minor league games in
minor league camp and last year in Pawtucket,
you still want to know does your stuff still
play,” Prior said. “My location wasn’t as good
as it’s been in the minor league camp, but I’m
sure it was adrenaline and anxiety.”
Prior starred in Chicago a decade ago when
Dusty Baker was the manager. Now managing
the Reds, Baker helped Prior get this chance.
“I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to be
in this position. I’m here because of Dusty.
Maybe I can surprise some people by doing
something,” Prior said.
Said Baker: “He’s not far off from where he
was before.”
“His fastball had good zip on it. His break-
ing pitches will come in time. He hasn’t been
here that long. I’m glad for him. It’s a matter
of staying healthy. It was nice for me to shake
his hand when he came off the mound.”
A’s starter Brett Anderson pitched for the
first time in a game since March 10. He had
been out with a strained right trapezius. The
left-hander missed most of last season while
recovering from elbow surgery.
Anderson gave up six runs on eight hits and
two walks in 4 2-3 innings. He struck out five.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Down by five with only a few
seconds remaining, Matthew Dellavedova and Saint Mary’s
nearly pulled off an NCAA tournament upset for the ages.
Instead, the senior star’s last-second shot sailed long, and
sixth-seeded Memphis moved on to the next round.
Dellavedova’s 3-pointer from the right wing missed every-
thing as time expired, allowing Memphis to hold on for a 54-
52 win over 11th-seeded Saint Mary’s on Thursday. The
Tigers led by 15 in the first half but nearly gave the game
away in the final seconds.
With Memphis (31-4) ahead 54-49, Eividas Petrulis banked
in a 3-pointer with 3.1 seconds to play. The Tigers then lost
the ball when the Gaels’ Jordan Giusti deflected the inbound
pass off Joe Jackson of the Tigers and out of bounds.
Saint Mary’s (28-7) was out of timeouts but had a chance
to regroup while officials reviewed the previous sequence. It
didn’t matter. Dellavedova, the career leader in scoring for
Saint Mary’s, was able to get a shot off, but it didn’t come
close to going in.
It was the first win in the NCAA tournament for Memphis
since 2009, when John Calipari was still coach. The Tigers
face third-seeded Michigan State on Saturday.
D.J. Stephens had nine points and eight blocks for
Memphis, and Jackson had 14 points and seven assists. Brad
Waldow scored 17 points to lead Saint Mary’s. Dellavedova
had 10 points, seven assists and six turnovers in 40 minutes.
The Gaels beat Middle Tennessee on Tuesday night in the
First Four, but they fell way behind in the first half against
Memphis and struggled all game with the Tigers’ athleticism,
especially around the basket.
Memphis finished with 12 blocks. Saint Mary’s had none.
The Tigers led 32-22 at halftime. Dellavedova started the
second half with a 3-pointer, and the Gaels trailed by only five
at 32-27 before Geron Johnson scored on a tip-in for
Memphis.
Waldow then had his shot blocked twice in a 15-second
span, once by Stephens and once by Tarik Black. Even
Stephens’ less successful plays were spectacular, like a
missed dunk off an offensive rebound with about 15:30 to
play.
Beau Levesque had a chance to tie it for Saint Mary’s with
a 3-pointer, but the ball came out of his hands awkwardly, and
the shot ended up missing everything.
Memphis went on an 8-2 run after that, which included a
one-handed dunk by Stephens and a 3-pointer by Chris
Crawford that made it 44-35.
It was 44-40 when Mitchell Young tried to drive on
Stephens. Blocked again.
A 3-pointer by Jackson put the Tigers up seven, and they
appeared to be out of danger until those frantic final seconds
almost ended their season.
Stephens set the tone early in the game by blocking a shot
by Young. The 6-foot-5 senior would go on to block four
shots in the half, and the Tigers were just as tough on the
perimeter, pressuring Dellavedova all over the court.
The Saint Mary’s guard didn’t look too rattled, finding
teammates with a few nice early passes, but the Gaels never
looked all that comfortable offensively.
St. Mary’s comes up
short, falls to Memphis
No. 1 Gonzaga holds
off No. 16 Southern
SALT LAKE CITY — A March
Madness warm-up turned into a great
escape for Gonzaga.
The Zags got pushed to the limit by
Southern on Thursday, pulling out a 64-58
victory in the closing minutes to avoid
becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a
16 in the NCAA tournament.
Kelly Olynyk led the Zags (32-2) with
21 points. They play No. 9 Wichita State
on Saturday.
But it was a pair of 3-pointers — one by
Gary Bell Jr., the next by Kevin Pagnos —
that staked the Bulldogs to a 62-58 lead
only moments after the game was tied at
56 with 3:45 left.
Derick Beltran had 21 points to lead
Southern (23-10) and his 14-foot baseline
jumper tied it at 56. But the Jaguars from
the Southwestern Athletic Conference did-
n’t make another field goal.
Marquette escapes Davidson
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Vander Blue’s
layup with one second left capped
Marquette’s rally from a nine-point
deficit and gave the third-seeded Golden
Eagles a 59-58 victory over Davidson on
Thursday in the NCAA tournament.
Blue and Jamil Wilson made consecu-
tive 3-pointers to bring Marquette with-
in 58-57 with 11 seconds left. The
Golden Eagles then caught a huge break
when De’Mon Brooks’ long inbounds
pass went out of bounds at midcourt
with 5.5 seconds left, providing another
opportunity.
Blue took full advantage after getting
Wilson’s inbounds pass, driving left and
finding room for the winning basket. He
then sealed Marquette’s improbable win
by stealing Davidson’s last-ditch
inbounds pass at midcourt to set off a
noisy celebration among players and
Golden Eagles fans at Rupp Arena.
Blue scored seven of Marquette’s final
11 points to finish with 16. Wilson added
14 points as the Golden Eagles (24-8)
won for the fifth time in six games.
Jake Cohen’s 20 points led Davidson
(26-8), who seemed in control leading
49-40 with 6 1/2 minutes left before
Marquette rallied.
No. 12 Oregon knocks
off No. 5 Oklahoma St.
SAN JOSE — With their outside shots
falling and their defense harassing
Oklahoma State all afternoon, the Oregon
Ducks played well above their disappointing
seeding and into the next round of the
NCAA tournament.
Damyean Dotson scored 17 points and
Arsalan Kazemi added 11 points and 17
rebounds to help 12th-seeded Oregon
extend a run that began in the Pac-12 tour-
nament by beating the fifth-seeded
Cowboys 68-55 in the second round on
Thursday.
Dominic Artis scored 13 points and
helped frustrate Oklahoma State star fresh-
man Marcus Smart on the defensive end to
give the Ducks (27-8) their first tournament
win in six years.
The selection committee raised some eye-
brows when Oregon was given a 12 seed
despite tying for second place in the Pac-12
in the regular season, winning the confer-
ence tournament and going 21-4 with Artis
in the lineup.
NCAA tournament roundup
Anthony Bennett shook off a poor start to
finish with 15 points and 11 rebounds for
UNLV, which beat Cal 76-75 in Berkeley
on Dec. 9. Despite being the higher seed,
the selection committee placed the
Rebels just 50 miles from Cal’s campus
— and in the heart of its alumni base in
technology-rich Silicon Valley.
Rebels fans filled up about two sec-
tions, and the rest of the red-and-black
faithful was sprinkled around the blue-
and-gold-clad crowd. Cal’s contingent let
its presence be known, roaring to its feet
at every chance.
Justin Cobbs added 13 points and five
rebounds, and Richard Solomon had 11
points and seven rebounds while playing
with the kind of heart and hustle coach
Mike Montgomery has long preached.
Cal outshot the Rebels 44 to 32 percent.
The Bears started the second half just
the way they did the first — pushing the
pace, swarming around in a zone defense
and swishing shots with ease to go ahead
37-31 on a 3-pointer by Cobbs.
Just as he did in the first half, UNLV
coach Dave Rice called timeout to stop
the momentum. Katin Reinhardt’s tying
shot from beyond the arc capped six
straight points for the Rebels before the
momentum switched sides again.

when talking soccer you don’t get the sense
Segre is capable of eating entire defenses alive
with his speed, strength and skill.
But many a time, the opposition made the
mistake of assuming there wasn’t a lurking
hunter plotting out his next move, his next run
— like all great predators, Segre arrived on
the soccer field quietly starving.
“Every time we played, he sparked fear in
the other team,” Del Rio said. “He was such a
vertical threat with his speed. Other teams
couldn’t handle him. Every time he stepped
on the field, you had this feeling that he had
the opportunity to do something special.”
Ah yes, when you’re a striker, there is noth-
ing tastier than a goal. It’s the perfect culmi-
nation of effort, patience and opportunity. The
more goals, the merrier.
But what made Segre special this season
wasn’t the frequency of his goals. Segre is the
San Mateo Daily Journal Boys’ Soccer Player
of the Year because no one came up with big-
ger goals in bigger games. It was the quality
of Segre’s goals that made his season memo-
rable. You see, it’s one thing to know that
you’re the biggest, baddest, fastest and
strongest alpha male on the soccer field and
it’s an entirely different one to still come up
huge when entire soccer defenses are trying to
stop you.
“He’s a pure goal scorer. He didn’t score as
many goals, but the goals he scored came in
one-goal type of games,” Del Rio said. “It was
either the equalizing goal or the game-winner.
He was definitely a difference-maker.”
Segre assures his affinity for the big goal
has very little to do with his skill set and a
heightened level of intensity and more about
being at the right place at the right time.
But given the frequency of those types of
goals, maybe the hunter is trying to pull a fast
one on all of us?
Against Menlo School in a game with seri-
ous West Bay Athletic League implications,
Segre scored the lone goal.
He’d repeat the feat in another huge contest
against Eastside College Prep.
In the Central Coast Section playoffs
against the defending Division II champion
San Mateo Bearcats, Segre scored a fantastic
insurance goal that locked up a spot in the
semifinals.
Then in the CCS championship game, once
against rival Menlo, Segre notched the
Gators’ lone goal — it was one that helped
SHP earn a share of the Division III crown.
In all, Segre tracked and trapped his prey 16
times and assisted on five other hunts. His
speed has always been a part of his game but,
in 2012-13, Segre dedicated himself to the
finesse part of his skill set.
“It seems like it really paid off,” Segre said.
But true to his off-the-field persona, Del Rio
said Segre fits the bill of soccer predator to the
T — mostly because his free-spirited and
loose personality segue perfectly onto the soc-
cer field. It’s not necessarily a mindset typical
of goal scorers the likes of Segre and perhaps
that’s what made him so darn deadly.
“He has a humble confidence that keeps him
loose,” Del Rio said. “He’s free spirited and I
think that helps his game. If he misses a shot
or a chance at goal, it doesn’t affect him. But,
as his confidence started to grow and you
watched him play more, you could see he had
the potential to be a very dangerous player.”
And on the wide, vast open spaces of the
soccer pitch, there were none more dangerous
than Segre this year.

SEGRE
how to take advantage of momentum, because
it was theirs for the taking after scoring in the
bottom of the first. Courtney Tyler led off with
a check-swing single and moved to second on
a passed ball. She took third on another mis-
take by the Carlmont catcher and slid home
safely off another passed ball.
What was Liggett more upset about: the
three passed balls or giving up the run?
“I was upset at both,” Liggett said. “I was
upset that our play led to the run.”
The Scots didn’t sulk for long, tying the
score in the top of the second inning. Mariko
Kondo led off the inning with a shot down the
right-field line that was booted out of play by
the Hillsdale right fielder. Kondo had a double
already and, with the ball out of play, she was
given third base as well.
It appeared Hillsdale pitcher Tori Pierucci
was going to get out of the inning unscathed,
retiring the next two batters to bring up Jacey
Phipps, who singled to left to drive in Kondo
and tie the score at 1.
In the third inning, it was Faulkner helping
her own cause. After Gabby Pons led off the
inning with a single to left, Faulkner followed
and worked the count full. On the payoff
pitch, she laced a line drive to centerfield,
driving in Pons and racing around the bases
for a home run. Phipps followed and reached
on a fielder’s choice and then stole second.
Christy Peterson, who finished the game with
three hits, then came through with a bloop sin-
gle to left that fell just in front of the left field-
er, enabling Phipps to score and give the Scots
a 3-1 lead.
Hillsdale got a run back in the bottom of the
fourth. With one out, Meagan Well reached on
a bunt single and went around to third on
Riley Wells’ single to right. With runners on
the corners and Kara Ronberg at the plate,
Riley Wells took off for second, drawing a
throw from Carlmont catcher Taylor
Yzaguirre. That opened the door for the
delayed double steal, as Meagan Wells took
off for home and scored easily as soon as
Yzaguirre threw down to second.
The Scots got the run right back, however,
with Peterson driving in her second run of the
game with a single to center to account for the
game’s final run.
Pierucci pitched five innings for the
Knights, allowing all five Carlmont runs on 10
hits. Ashlynn O’Keefe came on in relief in the
sixth and pitched two scoreless innings.
“I think we could have played a little better
game,” Metheany said. “We had people on
base, we took advantage of [Carlmont’s] mis-
takes. We’re just going to have to find a way to
win.
“You finish in the top three (in the Bay
Division) and you go to CCS. That’s our
goal.”

Woods’ group Thursday at Bay Hill.
He wound up in the lead.
Rose put on a clinic with the put-
ter and ran off four straight birdies
late in his round of 7-under 65. That
gave him a four-shot lead in the
Arnold Palmer Invitational among
those who played early in a chilly
breeze.
Woods had two sloppy bogeys
from greenside bunkers and didn’t
hit it as well as he did when he won
Doral two weeks ago. But he made
enough key par saves and manhan-
dled the par 5s to scratch out a 69, a
reasonable start as he tries to win
Bay Hill for the eighth time and
return to No. 1 in the world.
It was only the sixth time in 31
rounds at Bay Hill that Rose broke
70.
“If you had said I would shoot a
65 on the range this morning, I
would have probably said, ‘How
many holes have I played?’ And that
didn’t change much,” Rose said.
“The first five, six holes out there
were a grind.”
The rough was thick without
being terribly high. The hole loca-
tions were in spots Woods had not
seen very often. The scores were
reflective of a challenging morning
until Rose and Woods began to pick
up the pace on the par-5 16th.
Both made eagle from inside 15
feet — Woods hit a 9-iron for a sec-
ond shot on a hole that was playing
downwind — but that’s where their
fortunes changed. Woods came up
short in a bunker, hit a poor shot and
took bogey. Rose holed a 20-foot
birdie putt.
On the front nine, both made three
straight birdies starting on the par-5
fourth. Rose doubled his lead over
Woods on the par-3 seventh with a
12-foot birdie putt, and Woods came
up short in the bunker and failed to
save par.
John Rollins quietly went about
his business for a 68.
Woods was joined at 69 by Ryo
Ishikawa of Japan, Nick Watney,
Sean O’Hair and Charley Hoffman.
Woods played the played the par
5s in 5 under, bringing his career
total at Bay Hill to 118-under par.
Ernie Els played with Rose and
Woods and disappeared quickly. The
Big Easy kept pulling his tee shots
and getting into trouble, dropping
five shots in the opening five holes.
He rallied with a 4-iron to 2 feet for
birdie on the 18th, and a 9-iron to
about the same tap-in range on his
final hole at No. 9 to salvage a 73.
For Rose, it was all about the put-
ter — and he didn’t even need any
help from Steve Stricker, who gave
Woods a key putting tip at Doral.
Rose began to work hard on his
putting after the U.S. Open last sum-
mer, and he’s had some decent
rounds. At Medinah last September,
he knocked in a 45-foot birdie putt
on the 17th hole against Phil
Mickelson, in effect the difference in
Europe winning the cup.
“I dedicated myself at making a
few changes and getting better at
that part of the game,” Rose said.
“I’ve had some good days, no doubt.
And today was probably the first real
hot day I’ve had with the blade in a
long, long time. We all know it’s
about consistency and that’s what
I’m still working towards.
“It’s just fun to know that I obvi-
ously can do it, and I enjoy a lot of
confidence from that.”
For all his birdies, it was crucial
for Rose not to drop any shots after
an early bogey on the 11th, and he
did that with par saves on the 14th
and 15th. Just as key was the 18th,
when he played short of the water
for his second shot from the rough,
and then made a 10-footer for par.
Rose takes lead with 65 at Bay Hill; Woods four back

Cavemen — they’re just like
us! — or so “The Croods”
seems to be saying with its
familiar mix of generational
clashes, coming-of-age mile-
stones and generally relatable
laughs.
The animated adventure fea-
tures a strong, star-studded
cast and dazzles visually in
wondrously colorful, vibrant
3-D, but the script doesn’t pop
off the screen quite so effec-
tively. The overly facile mes-
sage here is: Trying new
things is good. It’s a useful
notion for kids in the crowd to
chew on, but their older com-
panions may be longing for
something more substantive.
Still, “The Croods” is both
brisk and beautiful, and
should be sufficiently enter-
taining for family audiences
for whom few such options
exist these days.
“The Croods” might be espe-
cially resonant with young
female viewers, with a strong,
resourceful teenage girl at its
center named Eep (voiced by
Emma Stone in her usual
charming rasp). It’s the prehis-
toric era, and while the rest of
Eep’s family prefers the com-
forting safety of hiding fear-
fully inside a cave, with only
sporadic outings for group
hunts, she longs to see what’s
outside those stone walls.
Her dad, Grug (Nicolas
Cage), is especially protective,
neurotically worrying about
every possible unknown and
urging the same sort of appre-
hension in everyone else,
including his supportive wife,
Ugga (an underused Catherine
Keener), and doltish 9-year-
old son, Thunk (Clark Duke).
(“Never not be afraid,” is one
of dad’s favorite sayings.)
There’s also a sharp-toothed
Tasmanian devil of a baby
named Sandy and Grug’s
mother-in-law, voiced in reli-
‘Croods’ is simple but dazzles

ably sassy fashion by Cloris Leachman. The
gags that depict her as a disapproving nag are
more than a bit stale; if there’s any heart-tug-
ging or even vaguely engaging bond here, it’s
the father-daughter one between Grug and
Eep.
One day, Eep dares to escape while every-
one else is sleeping and meets up with the
hottest (and only) guy she’s ever seen.
Conveniently, he’s named Guy, and he’s
voiced by Ryan Reynolds. He has a furry,
impossibly cute companion named Belt who
holds up his pants (kids will dig this tiny
scene-stealer). But he also astonishes her with
something she’s never seen before called fire.
Guy warns that the world is ending, and that
she should come with him if she wants to live.
When her family’s cave is destroyed, they
reluctantly realize they must all go with Guy.
This sets up: a) some basic, tried-and-true
road trip jokes and b) a blossoming romance
between Guy and Eep, which dad naturally
tries to stifle.
The themes aren’t exactly groundbreaking
from co-writers and directors Chris Sanders
and Kirk DeMicco (with John Cleese sharing
a story-by credit, having been a part of early
drafts of the script), and the plot feels too
repetitive with the Croods encountering one
unexplored terrain after another and respond-
ing in predictable ways.
But the oohs, ahhs and scattered laughs
come from the various creatures the Croods
discover along their journey, including the
hungry, hot-pink piranha birds, the upside-
down pear bears and the fearsome bear owls.
Much of the lush landscape and vivid details
feel as if they were taken directly from
“Avatar,” and a similar sense of wonder pro-
pels these stronger segments. The lighting can
indeed be magical, so it’s no surprise that we
are urged over and over again to step into it.
“The Croods,” from DreamWorks
Animation, is rated PG for some scary action.
Running time: 92 minutes. Two and a half

“It could look like two or three different
countries,” said Robert Blendon, a Harvard
School of Public Health professor who studies
public opinion on health care. “The political
culture of a state is going to play an important
role in getting millions of people to voluntari-
ly sign up.”
Civic leadership — from governors, legisla-
tors, mayors and business and religious
groups — is shaping up as a huge factor in the
launch of Obama’s plan, particularly since the
penalty for ignoring the law’s requirement to
get coverage is as low as $95 the first year.
People-to-people contacts will be key, and
the potential for patchwork results is real.
“Obviously it’s a possibility in terms of
there being some real difficulties,” said Sen.
Bob Casey, D-Pa., whose efforts helped pass
the law. Casey also said he believes the
Obama administration will be ready to lead in
states holding back.
Disparities already are cropping up.
Town Meeting Day — the first Tuesday in
March — is a storied tradition in Vermont,
and this year it provided a platform to educate
residents about their options under the health
care law. As many as 250,000 may eventually
get coverage through Vermont Health
Connect, as the state’s marketplace is known.
“Even before we were a state, these town
meetings existed,” said Sean Sheehan, direc-
tor of education and outreach. “It’s a way peo-
ple come together as a community, and we are
counting on those community connections to
get the word out.” The health care plan was on
the agenda at about 100 town meetings, and
other local gatherings are taking place.
Texas residents are entitled to the same ben-
efits as Vermonters, but in the state with the
highest proportion of its population unin-
sured, Gov. Rick Perry will not be promoting
the federal insurance exchange, a spokes-
woman said. Nor does Perry plan to expand
Medicaid.
The result is a communications void that
civic and political groups, mayors, insurers
and hospitals will try to fill.
“You have people who aren’t really charged
up about it because they don’t even know that
they would qualify,” said Durrel Douglas,
spokesman for the Texas Organizing Project,
an activist group. A national poll this week by
the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation
found that two of every three uninsured peo-
ple don’t know enough about the law to
understand how it will affect them.
Supporters of Obama’s law in Texas say the
federal government hasn’t shown up yet to
launch the state’s insurance exchange and no
one is sure when that will happen.
“It is a much bigger lift here,” said Anne
Dunkelberg, associate director of the Austin-
based Center for Public Policy Priorities,
which advocates for low-income people. “The
sooner the federal exchange can get engaged
and working with all the folks here who want
to promote enrollment, the better.”
The Congressional Budget Office predicts a
slow start overall, with only 7 million gaining
coverage through the exchanges next year, ris-
ing to 24 million in 2016.
At a recent insurance industry meeting, fed-
eral officials directing the rollout rattled off a
dizzying list of deadlines. Public outreach will
begin in earnest this summer and early fall,
said Gary Cohen, head of the Center for
Consumer Information and Insurance
Oversight.
The government sees three main groups of
potential customers for the new insurance
markets, he said.
There’s the “active sick and worried,” peo-
ple who are uninsured or have pre-existing
medical conditions. Under the law, insurers
will no longer be able to turn the sick away.
There’s the healthy and young. “They feel
invincible, they don’t feel a need for health
insurance,” said Cohen.
Finally, there’s the passive and unengaged.
“For these people, a significant education
effort needs to happen,” he said.
To keep premiums affordable, the govern-
ment will need to sign up lots of people from
the last two groups to balance those in poor
health, who will have a strong motivation to
join.
The official heading consumer outreach for
the rollout, Julie Bataille, acknowledges the
challenge but says she’s confident.
“This is a really an enormous opportunity
for us to change the conversation around
health care and help individuals understand
the benefits they can get,” she said.

PARIS — A new examination of what is
essentially the universe’s birth certificate
allows astronomers to tweak the age, girth and
speed of the cosmos, more secure in their
knowledge of how it evolved, what it’s made of
and its ultimate fate.
Sure, the universe suddenly seems to be
showing its age, now calculated at 13.8 billion
years — 80 million years older than scientists
had thought. It’s got about 3 percent more girth
— technically it’s more matter than mysterious
dark energy — and it is expanding about 3 per-
cent more slowly.
But with all that comes the wisdom for
humanity. Scientists seem to have gotten a
good handle on the Big Bang and what hap-
pened just afterward, and may actually under-
stand a bit more about the cosmic question of
how we are where we are.
All from a baby picture of fossilized light
and sound.
The snapshot from a European satellite had
scientists from Paris to Washington celebrating
a cosmic victory of knowledge Thursday —
basic precepts that go back all the way to
Einstein and relativity.
The Planck space telescope mapped back-
ground radiation from the early universe —
now calculated at about 13.8 billion years old.
The results bolstered a key theory called “infla-
tion,” which says the universe burst from sub-
atomic size to its vast expanse in a fraction of a
second just after the Big Bang that created the
cosmos.
“We’ve uncovered a fundamental truth of the
universe,” said George Efstathiou, director of
the Kavli Institute for Cosmology at the
University of Cambridge who announced the
Planck findings in Paris. “There’s less stuff that
we don’t understand by a tiny amount.”
The map of the universe’s evolution — in
sound echoes and fossilized light going back
billions of years — reinforces some predictions
made decades ago solely on the basis of math-
ematical concepts.
“We understand the very early universe
potentially better than we understand the bot-
tom of our oceans,” said Bob Nichols, director
of the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation
at the University of Portsmouth in Britain. “We
as humanity put a satellite into space, we pre-
dicted what it should see and saw it.”
Physicist Sean Carroll of the California
Institute of Technology, who was not involved
in the project, called it “a big pat on the back
for our understanding of the universe.”
“In terms of describing the current universe,
I think we have a right to say we’re on the right
track,” he added.
Other independent scientists said the results
were comparable on a universal scale to the
announcement earlier this month by a different
European physics group on a subatomic level
— with the finding of the Higgs boson particle
that explains mass in the universe.
“What a wonderful triumph of the mathe-
matical approach to describing nature. The pre-
cision is breathtaking,” Brian Greene, a
Columbia University physicist, said in an email
Thursday. “The satellite is measuring tempera-
ture variations in space — which arose from
processes that took place almost 14 billion
years ago — to 1 part in a million.

No ‘kosher for Passover’
Coke in California again
By Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Coca-Cola may be missing from Passover
feasts for the second year in a row in California.
The Coca-Cola Co. said Thursday it once again won’t be
able to make “kosher for Passover” versions of its flagship cola
this year because of manufacturing changes that were made in
the state.
Regular Coca-Cola is sweetened with high-fructose corn
syrup in the United States but the Passover version is made
with sugar because many observant Jews do not use products
made with corn during the holiday.
Last year, Coke directed its suppliers to change the way they
manufacture caramel to reduce levels of the chemical 4-
methylimidazole, or 4-MEI, after California listed it as a car-
cinogen. The company said the new caramel process has since
rolled out nationally to streamline its manufacturing process.
But outside California, it’s still using the previous caramel
process so that it can continue providing kosher for Passover
products.
“We want to ensure that our kosher for Passover products
using the new process caramel provide the same high quality
taste and experience that our consumers expect,” Coca-Cola
said in a statement.
Once an appropriate kosher for Passover formula is deter-
mined for California, Coca-Cola said it will be rolled out
nationally as well.
A spokeswoman for the Atlanta-based company said in an
email that Coca-Cola has made “good progress” in developing
kosher for Passover drinks in California but that it’s still
reviewing the shelf stability of those products.
She said they should be available next year, and declined to
say whether stores in California might be able to stock
Passover Coke from other states.
Coca-Cola said availability of its kosher products varies
depending on local demand. It said it has made kosher prod-
ucts since the early 1930s.
The great strength of ‘Gears of War: Judgment’ remains its cover-based shooting, which is still some of the best you’ll find in
this generation.
By John Kosik
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Blockbuster game franchises like Epic
Games’ “Gears of War” don’t just fade
away — even if the primary antagonist,
the voracious Locust Horde, was obliterat-
ed at the end of the initial trilogy.
Not to worry. With “Gears of War:
Judgment” (for Xbox 360, $59.99),
Microsoft takes players back in time to the
beginning of the war between humans and
Locusts. It’s a hit-or-miss affair — but those
few hits manage to leave some bruises.
The story begins shortly after
Emergence Day, when the Locusts sur-
faced from underground and attacked the
humans on the planet Sera. The war is still
in its early stages and humanity has yet to
fully grasp the danger. Veteran characters
Damon Baird and Augustus Cole, along
with two other members of their squad,
stand before a military tribunal accused of
treason.
The four soldiers each get a chance to
tell their version of events, and though it’s
no “Rashomon,” you do get to play as each
squad member. Spending some time with
our old friends Baird and Cole sounds
enticing, but they are not the lovable wise-
crackers they were in the trilogy. The typi-
cally sarcastic Baird is dryly serious
through most of the game, and former
“thrashball” player Cole never invites any-
one to ride the “Cole Train” — a colossal
disappointment for both characters.
Your mission prior to the trial was to
help save the people of Halvo Bay and ...
well, I was never quite sure of anything
beyond that, to be honest. All you really
know is that a fierce boss named Gen.
Karn awaits at the end, and he does pro-
vide a meaty challenge.
But the story never gets a chance to sink
in and resonate the way the trilogy did,
thanks to constant starting and stopping
throughout the campaign. Following each
firefight the game pauses to show you
stats and points you’ve earned, making the
sections feel like a series of multiplayer
maps glued together by a few hastily
designed cut-scenes.
The great strength of “Gears” remains
its cover-based shooting, which is still
some of the best you’ll find in this gener-
ation. There are a handful of new weapons
to complement series mainstays like the
chain saw-bladed Lancer, the Boltok
Pistol and the One-Shot, and the pace of
the gunplay is frantic and fun.
Epic subsidiary People Can Fly, the
Polish studio behind the wildly insane
shooter “Bulletstorm,” has added some
fresh twists, including an option to
“declassify” some element of each mis-
sion. When you open these classified doc-
uments, a new wrinkle is added, such as
decreased visibility, a time limit, weapon
restrictions or increased enemy strength.
Once again, these feel more like the
variables you can set up in multiplayer
matches, but having the option to change
your campaign experience is a good way
to give the game a bit more shelf life. On
difficulty settings of hardcore and above,
it can get a bit harrowing to complete a
declassified section, so series veterans will
definitely find new challenges here.

grounds of the school throughout the day
in light of the threat.
Norris said nothing happened at
Aragon Thursday, but officers will report
there again today, and will be making
passing checks on the campus through-
out the weekend.
Additionally, officers will be keeping
a close eye on the other San Mateo
schools today as a precaution, he said.
Police detectives are continuing to
investigate the case, but have not identi-
fied a suspect, Norris said.
A female student at the school notified
school administrators Wednesday morn-
ing about the threat, made on an anony-
mous “confessions” page she created on
a Google doc, said Kirk Black, San
Mateo Union High School District asso-
ciate superintendent.
School staff notified the district, which
in turn alerted San Mateo police, Black
said.
The threat, described as “rambling,”
specifically mentioned Thursday’s date,
and some parents elected to keep their
students home for the day, Black said.
Thursday’s attendance figures for
Aragon were not immediately available.
Black said administrators ensured par-
ents prior to the school day that the
threat had “very little credibility” to it.
Even so, Black said district officials took
it seriously and used an “abundance of
caution.”
Officers were on the campus at the
start of the school day, along with school
administrators and counselors, and stu-
dents were monitored as they entered the
school, Black said.
As a precaution, a private security firm
conducted surveillance at the campus
overnight, he said.
Black said the student who reported
the threat had created the “confessions”
page on the Google doc for Aragon stu-
dents, and copy-and-pasted posts onto a
Facebook page she created.
The student told administra-
tors that posts were coming in
so rapidly, she hadn’t noticed
the threat until it was already on
the Facebook page, Black said.
She has since removed the
post from the page, he said.
San Mateo police officers and
detectives went to the school,
located at 900 Alameda de las
Pulgas, immediately after get-
ting word of the threat, accord-
ing to Norris.
The district normally has one
student resource officer for its
seven high schools, Black said.
The San Mateo-Foster City
School District was also noti-
fied of the threat, as one of its
schools, Baywood Elementary
School at 600 Alameda de las
Pulgas, is just a few blocks
away, Norris said.
Anyone with information
about the threat is asked to call
San Mateo police at (650) 522-
7700.

fifth grade. However, the new program
will not replace the traditional curricu-
lum offerings at the school. Instead, it
will be an additional choice for families.
The Redwood City Elementary School
District Board of Trustees voted to
approve the plan Wednesday night.
The plan is to start with two kinder-
garten classrooms in the fall then add
two grades per year, said district spokes-
woman Naomi Hunter. Students can
then continue the program at Kennedy
Middle School. Students for this fall’s
inaugural class will be chosen from
applicants who applied to Adelante but
were wait listed, said Hunter.
At the same meeting, the board dis-
cussed a contract and solar power pur-
chase agreement with Siemens Industry,
Inc. Instead of approving it, the board
opted to spend Wednesday night dis-
cussing the proposal. A special meeting
has been called Monday to approve the
contract.
If approved, the partnership would
result in upgrades in all 15 schools to the
energy management systems, lighting,
rest rooms and water as well as the tires
to the district’s fleet. In addition, five
schools — Adelante, Hawes, John Gill,
Clifford and Kennedy — would have
solar panels installed.
Under the agreement, Siemens
Industry would fund, build, own and
operate the solar panel with no up-front
costs to the district. Construction could
start this summer. The project is estimat-
ed to save the district a minimum of
$812,826 over 20 years for the solar
power purchase agreement at five
schools and $406,920 over 15 years for
the energy efficient facility improve-
ments. The district and Siemens are
looking at securing an additional savings
offered through the California Energy
Commission that could result in a sav-
ings of $667,920 over 15 years.
This fall will mean the start of another
program in Redwood City.
In August, the board approved a new
charter school proposal. Connect
Community Charter School submitted a
proposal to the district last year in hopes
of opening a school on the east side of
town that features shared leadership,
social-emotional learning and an
inquiry-based approach. Since the
approval, supporters have been working
on raising funds, publicizing the new
school and hiring staff. On Wednesday,
the board approved its final offer for
facilities. The school will be located at
Fair Oaks School starting this fall.
The board meets 1 p.m. Monday,
March 25 at the District Office, 750
Bradford St., Redwood City.

the charges down to something reason-
able.
Carr added Dearman is in the process
of trying to sell her home to offer resti-
tution.
Prosecutors say that Dearman, also
known as Joanne Seeney, was the
finance director at the San Mateo County
Mosquito and Vector Control District.
Vika Sinipata served as an accounting
supervisor and bookkeeper assistant.
Prosecutors allege the pair embezzled
the funds between 2009 and 2011 by
giving themselves extra pay at a higher
pay rate and fraudulent time off, exces-
sively contributed to their deferred com-
pensation funds, used credit cards for
personal purchases and electronically
transferred money into their own
accounts. An audit showed more than
$635,000 missing but prosecutors only
charged them with stealing approximate-
ly $450,000 because they could not
prove an actual loss of the greater
amount.
In February, Sinipata admitted helping
her supervisor steal more than $400,000
in taxpayer dollars from the agency. She
is not required to testify against
Dearman as part of the plea deal but her
participation may play a role in how
much prison time she receives, District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said previous-
ly.
Sinipata pleaded no contest to 12
felonies including four counts each of
theft of government funds, embezzle-
ment and alteration of public records.
She also admitted the excessive taking
allegation which means she embezzled
more than $50,000. Sinipata accepted
the negotiated plea deal without any
promises when sentenced and faces up
to eight years in prison. She remains in
custody on $150,000 bail.
The charges against Dearman and
Sinipata raised questions about the
district’s oversight and operations,
particularly because at the time
Dearman had one embezzlement con-
viction on her record and was being
prosecuted for a second.
According to a now-retired operations
director at the district, Dearman charged
defense attorneys fees for that case to the
district and at one point took medical
leave, claiming she needed to care for
her mother but in actuality served two
years and eight months in prison for the
two different embezzlement cases. In
one case, Seeney ran up more than a
half-million dollars on her boss’ credit
card.
The alleged embezzlement came to
light after a board member appointed by
the city of San Carlos questioned the
balance in a pesticide account.
The San Mateo County Local Agency
Formation Commission, which oversees
the county’s special districts, considered
dissolving the mosquito agency and
handing its functions back to San Mateo
County but ultimately voted against
doing so.
