Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Tuesday • April 2, 2013 • Vol XII, Edition 195
By Bill Silverfarb
Marshall Ketchum, one of the leading fig-
ures behind the Coastside Fire Protection
District board recall, has apologized to the
three directors he wants to oust for taking
them to court over candidate statements filed
for next week’s election.
A settlement agreement also calls for
Ketchum to stop blogging or commenting on
the fire recall on his website
until after the April 9 election.
He must also pay $10,000, according to the
settlement agreement.
The three on the board facing recall,
President Doug Mackintosh, Director Mike
Alifano and Director Gary Riddell, intend to
ditch the district’s contract with Cal Fire in
favor of re-establishing a stand-alone fire
department to serve the coast. It was that deci-
sion that prompted the recall effort.
Ketchum requested the court to have por-
tions of their candidate statements deleted or
amended because they are in violation of state
elections code, according to a petition filed in
Superior Court in February.
Ketchum, who led the signature-gathering
effort last year to remove the three, alleged
their candidate statements contain informa-
tion that is false, misleading or inconsistent
with state elections code.
A judge found the statements to be OK,
however, and Ketchum has already issued an
apology on his Keep Cal Fire website.
The apology reads:
“Directors Alifano, Riddell and
Apology issued in fire recall
Settlement also calls for recall proponent to stop blogging

A large dump truck with workers hired
by the city of San Mateo arrived at a
Shoreview neighborhood home yester-
day morning ready to clear it from debris

A dump truck arrived at a San Mateo home yesterday morning
to clear debris from it as ordered by a judge. The yard was

White House tries its

WASHINGTON — The White House,
busy with its annual Easter Egg Roll,
also managed to pull off an April Fools’
The White House Twitter account
announced earlier Monday to be on the
lookout for a “special video message
from the president.”
Instead, viewers got a surprise visitor
to the press briefing room.
The piece began with a shot of the
familiar lectern regularly used by press
secretary Jay Carney. It was empty as
the presidential entrance march played.
Then a small head peeked over the edge
of the stand.
“It looks like you were expecting
somebody else.”
Indeed. It was Robby Novak, who
plays “Kid President” in a series of pop-
ular YouTube videos. “April Fools’ on all
of you all,” he said.

Thicke’s video with nude
models gets YouTube ban
NEW YORK — Robin Thicke’s new
music video is too hot for YouTube.
A representative for the R&B crooner
said Monday that his unrated video for
“Blurred Lines” was banned from the
website. The clip features nude models
prowling around Thicke and rappers T.I.
and Pharrell.
A rep for YouTube didn’t immediately
respond to an email seeking comment.
The video is still playing on the music
video website Vevo.
Thicke’s unrated clip was released last
week and garnered more than 1 million
views in days. It became a water cooler
topic on the blogs and entertainment
websites. The original video was
released a week before and has 1.3 mil-
lion views.
Thicke said in an interview last week
that he had sought the approval of his
wife, actress Paula Patton, to shoot with
nude models.

Most people don’t use quadratic equations
in their day-to-day dealings.
Even if it’s a formula mastered years ago in
high school, those returning to school may not
be masters of the math problem. So, when
faced with a placement test with such ques-
tions, those who go in blind may not score
Janet L. Stringer, dean of Science and
Technology at Cañada College in Redwood
City, said that can change with a week of
preparation. Math Jam — an intensive math
placement test preparation program for stu-
dents — helps ready students for placement
exams and also review for upcoming classes.
Started in the summer of 2009, the program
was originally funded by a STEM (science,
technology, engineering and mathematics)
grant to help students accelerate in math
It’s been proven at many colleges: The
longer it takes a student to get through
requirements, the less likely he or she will fin-
ish, explained Stringer. Many of the STEM
programs require high-level math. If a student
can test into a higher math level, with a little
prep work, he or she can save themselves time
and money, she said. Since offering the first
refresher course, the program has expanded
and is now offered three times a year. Students
in Math Jam were found to succeed in their
higher level classes, stay enrolled in school
and also were more likely to return to the pro-
gram to prepare for other courses, said
Math Jam is one of the 19 programs recog-
nized this year by the San Mateo County
School Board Association 2012 J. Russell
Kent Awards. Given to outstanding and inno-
vative educational programs, applicants must
demonstrate how their program promotes stu-
dent success, employs a high degree of cre-
ativity and demonstrates transferability.
“We continue to be impressed by the out-
standing innovative programs provided by our
schools in so many areas of academics, stu-
dent support and community,” said Seth
Rosenblatt, president of the San Mateo
County School Boards Association and San
Carlos Elementary School District Board
Most of the awards are for programs focus-
ing on students in kindergarten through high
school. Math Jam is the only college-level
program to be recognized this year.
Retention Specialist Chris Woo, who over-
sees the day-to-day operations at Math Jam,
started working at Math Jam in 2011. She
called it the best job she’s ever had.
“I worked for 30 years [in the financial
world] and maybe three people said ‘thank
you.’ I worked 30 minutes [here] and had three
people say ‘thank you,’” she said.
Students are so happy to be helped, said
Woo. Now students are returning for help in
higher levels of math as well as to offer serv-
ices as tutors. Some days will have afternoon
and evening sessions. Students will come as a
tutor to one and to learn in another, Woo said.
A variety of intervention type programs are
recognized by this year’s Kent Awards.
Redwood High School’s Redwood
Environmental Academy for Leadership,
known as R.E.A.L., is an innovative partner-
ship started four years ago to bring hands-on
science lessons to students. Students work
with professional partners to build leadership
and learn academics through environmental
service projects.
Principal Frank Wells said what makes this
program special is the impact it’s had on stu-
dents who were headed toward dropping out.
Ninety percent of students who have taken
part in the program changed directions toward
graduation and furthering their education after
high school, he said. Wells attributed the pro-
gram’s success to the time taken to study best
practices when designing it as well as contin-
ued support from faculty and staff.

San Carlos man arrested
after attempting residential break-in
A 35-year-old old man faces charges of attempted bur-
glary, prowling and peeping after trying to enter a San
Carlos home Saturday evening.
A 39-year-old woman was putting together Easter bas-
kets for her children Saturday evening just before midnight
at her home, on the 100 block of Beverly Drive in San
Carlos, when she heard her rear bedroom window opening,
according to a press release by the San Mateo County
Sheriff’s Office.
The woman looked to see what was happening and saw a
man staring back at her through the window. She closed the
window and called 911, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff deputies created a perimeter around the home and
shortly after located David Russell Speiser, a San Carlos
resident. Speiser was booked into the San Mateo County
Jail for attempted burglary, peeping and prowling. He is
out on a $50,000 bail, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Woman arrested for
DUI after injury crash in Pacifica
A man was seriously injured in a suspected drunken driv-

Officers responded to a report of a crash involving two
vehicles at the intersection of state Highway 1 and Linda
Mar Boulevard at about 7:20 p.m., Pacifica police Capt.
Daniel Steidle said.
A 51-year-old woman driving a Mazda allegedly went
through a red light and collided with a Ford pickup truck,
Steidle said.
The truck’s driver was not hurt, but a passenger in the
Mazda, a 54-year-old man, was taken to a hospital with
serious injuries, he said.
The driver, identified as San Bruno resident Sharman
O’Brien, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving
under the influence causing injury, police said.
The case remains under investigation by Pacifica police.

SACRAMENTO — A Democratic state
lawmaker on Monday said he wants to alter
part of Gov. Jerry Brown’s prison realignment
law so serious drug pushers are sent to state
prisons instead of county jails.
The bill by Assemblyman Ken Cooley of
Sacramento would apply to those convicted of
selling or transporting more than 2.2 pounds
of heroin, cocaine or methamphetamine. It is
one of numerous changes to the 2011 law pro-
posed by lawmakers of both parties.
Cooley says about 40 such offenders have
begun serving their sentences in county jails
statewide since the realignment law champi-
oned by the Democratic governor took effect
18 months ago. Many are serving sentences
of 10 years or longer.
As of last month, the California State
Sheriffs’ Association found that counties were
housing more than 1,100 inmates serving sen-
tences of five years or more in jails designed
for stays of a year or less.
“These county jail facili-
ties were not set up for
long-term incarceration,”
Cooley said during a news
conference at Sacramento
County’s Rio Cosumnes
Correctional Center, about
25 miles south of
About 43 percent of the
jail’s 2,100 inmates are
parole violators or convicts sent there because
of realignment.
The law is sending thousands of so-called
lower-level offenders to county jails as a way
to comply with a federal court order to reduce
the state prison population. Critics say it is
burdening local jails and letting some hard-
ened criminals walk free if there is no room
for them.
Cooley and Sacramento County District
Attorney Jan Scully, a Republican, said the
law also has benefits, including the chance for
offenders to participate in education and reha-
bilitation programs that are not available to
them in prison.

WASHINGTON — Whatever immigration
deal might be claimed by labor and business,
or by Democrats and Republicans, Sen.
Marco Rubio of Florida is serving notice it
has to go through him.
The Tea Party favorite made it clear over the
weekend he has a make-or-break role for the
most sweeping immigration changes in
decades. It’s a high-risk strategy that also puts
his presidential ambitions on the line.
Four Republican senators are involved with
Democrats in crafting a bipartisan bill to
secure the nation’s borders, improve legal
immigration and offer eventual citizenship to
millions now in the U.S. illegally. But only
Rubio has the conservative bona fides plus
life-story credibility to help steer the bill
through the Senate with strong support from
the GOP, and give it a chance in the House,
where conservative Republicans hold more
More than anyone else, Rubio, the son of
Cuban immigrants, could have the clout to
hold off rebellion from conservative talk show
hosts and a Republican base whose opposition
helped kill immigration changes last time
around, in 2007. And perhaps only Rubio
could sink the entire effort just by walking
If the first-term senator decides against the
bill, “that just takes all the oxygen out of the
room,” said Al Cardenas, chairman of the
American Conservative Union. “It may pass
the Senate with Democrats’ support ... but
that’s not the kind of support you want out of
the Senate if you expect passage out of the
With that unique status, Rubio is walking a
fine line. He’s helping negotiate the political-
ly combustible legislation, which the biparti-
san group is expected to unveil next week,
while also taking care to maintain the conser-
vative support that makes him so important to
the process in the first place.
For Rubio, more so than the other
Republicans involved — Sens. John McCain
and Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey
Graham of South Carolina — there’s danger
in a full-throated embrace of comprehensive
immigration legislation. For some conserva-
tives, it will always be toxic: It’s a priority for
Democrats and President Barack Obama that
some foes see as granting amnesty to millions
of law-breakers.

WASHINGTON — A photo of the Obamas
hugging that was released on Election Day
2012 has become the world’s most popular
tweet on Twitter. A dressed-up version of
Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech,
packed with charts and graphs, is huge on
YouTube. A playful picture of the president
cavorting with a 3-year-old in a Spiderman
costume is a favorite online.
It’s all courtesy of the Obama image
machine, serving up a stream of words,
images and videos that invariably cast the
president as commanding, compassionate and
on the ball. In this world, Obama’s family is
always photogenic, first dog Bo is always
well-behaved and the veg-
etables in the South Lawn
kitchen garden always
seem succulent.

Capitalizing on the pos-
sibilities of the digital age,
the Obama White House
is generating its own con-
tent like no president before, and refining its
media strategies in the second term in hopes
of telling a more compelling story than in the
At the same time, it is limiting press
access in ways that past administrations
wouldn’t have dared, and the president is
answering to the public in more controlled
settings than his predecessors. It’s raising
new questions about what’s lost when the
White House tries to make an end run
around the media, functioning, in effect, as
its own news agency.
Mike McCurry, who served as press secre-
tary to President Bill Clinton, sees an inclina-
tion by the Obama White House to “self-pub-
lish,” coupled with tactics “I never would have
dreamed of in terms of restricting access” for
independent news organizations.
“What gets lost are those revealing
moments when the president’s held account-
able by the representatives of the public who
are there in the form of the media,” says

Colorado prosecutors
seek execution in theater attack
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — For James

Monday in announcing
they will seek his execu-

The decision — dis-
closed in court just days
after prosecutors publicly
rejected Holmes’ offer to
plead guilty if they took
the death penalty off the table — elevated the
already sensational case to a new level and
could cause it to drag on for years.

that in this case, for James Eagan Holmes, jus-
tice is death,” District Attorney George

the case with 60 people who lost relatives in

HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut law-

ing a ban on new high-capacity ammunition
magazines like the ones used in the mas-

The proposal includes new registration
requirements for existing magazines that carry

SEOUL, South Korea — North

by outside experts as an economic
reformer one day after top party
officials adopted a declaration

The U.S., meanwhile, made its
latest conspicuous display of fire-
power, announcing it had sent F-22
stealth fighter jets to participate in
annual U.S.-South Korean war
games that Pyongyang calls prepa-
ration for an invasion. The new
South Korean president, who has a
policy meant to re-engage
Pyongyang with talks and aid, told
her top military leaders Monday to

The re-emer-
gence of Pak
Pong Ju as pre-
mier at an annu-
al spring parlia-
mentary ses-
sion is seen by
analysts as a clear signal that leader
Kim Jong Un is moving to back up
recent vows to focus on strength-
ened economic development. The
U.N. says two-thirds of the coun-
try’s 24 million people face regular
food shortages.
Pak was the North’s premier in
2003-2007, according to Seoul’s
Unification Ministry. He was sacked
initially because of a proposal for an
incentive-based hourly, rather than
monthly, wage system deemed too
similar to U.S.-style capitalism,
Japan’s Mainichi Shimbun newspa-
per reported in 2007. Pak replaces
Choe Yong Rim, who is 82.
“Pak Pong Ju is the face of eco-
nomic reform, such as it exists —
reform with North Korean charac-
teristics as they say,” said John
Delury, a professor and North Korea
analyst at Seoul’s Yonsei University.
Any economic changes won’t be
radical, Delury said, and, for the
time being, they’re mostly aspira-
tional. One possible change could
entail a shift of part of the country’s
massive military spending into the
economy as a whole, he said.
Pak is widely known for spear-
heading reforms in 2002, when the
government began allowing some
markets, although it later back-
tracked, said Koh Yu-hwan, a North
Korea analyst at Seoul’s Dongguk
University. His appointment could
be a message to the outside world
that North Korea wants to calm ten-
sion and focus more on economic
revitalization, Koh said.
North Korea taps reformist premier amid nuclear tension

Gas — more tax
Politicians putting their hands in our
pockets is getting boring and frustrating.
So we are going to pay 3.5 percent more
state tax on the already most expensive
gasoline in the country. Well, dummies,
you forced the car industry to increase
the gas mileage and look what happens?
Less money in the state, kitty. Now
which imbecile in the government did
not see that?
The answer, as always, is to tax more.
People will respond as expected and the
end result will be even less money for
the state. The approach is wrong. Charge
and tax in a pay-as-you-go approach,
simply by the mile. It is fair that if you
use the facility, you pay. That should be
independent from the amount of energy
you needed to propel your vehicle. Who
is paying now for those Duracells on
wheels that start to clog the streets? It is
you and I who keep their cars for a long
time and mostly, the less well-off folks
who drive older cars.
The solution is so simple, even the
government can do it. Odometers
(already sealed and certified) can be read
by the DMV or smog stations. How dif-
ficult would it be to have the DMV add
the annual road tax as a separate line
item to the renewal bill, purely based on
actual miles driven that year?
The police will make sure you comply
or else they’ll compound your car. They
are good at that. Additional cost to col-
lect? About zero dollars. More work for
the motorist? Nope — just a bigger
check to write, which we are getting
really good at. Results? Fair taxation
based on road use. Start with the plug-
ins and hybrids next year. We must be
fair. Remember?

could happen time and time again in the
Congress could and should pass legis-
lation that would tighten the reins on
such loans to the point where every dol-
lar spent would have to be accounted for
on how it was spent and where.

alifornians, evidently, aren’t
buying what state government
is selling.
Despite faint signs the economy is
doing better and the state’s budget situ-
ation has at least leveled off after years
of yawning deficits, people aren’t con-
vinced that the good times are back and
that government can go off on a spend-
ing spree.
A poll released this week by the
Public Policy Institute of California
reveals more and more people in the
state think the $68 million high-speed
rail project should be scrapped.
According to the poll, 48 percent of
adults favor the rail project, which has
been pushed hard by Gov. Jerry Brown,
while 50 percent oppose it. Among
likely voters, the news is worse for rail
backers: 54 percent are against the rail
line, and 43 percent favor it.
It gets worse for the governor: on his
other pet project, an $11.1 billion water
bond that will be on the November
2014 ballot, 51 percent of likely voters
are against it. Brown wants to use the
bond to help build two water tunnels
through the San Joaquin Delta, along
with dams, water treatment plans and
other water projects. The bond has
already been withdrawn from two pre-
vious ballots because of the cost and
voters’ wariness about approving any
bond measures in a down economy.
The governor has asked that the bond
cost be reduced — and if he’s success-
ful, a majority in the PPIC poll said
they would be able to support the meas-
ure. Similar support was voiced if costs
were reduced for high speed rail.
Legislators and the governor may
have been buoyed by the results of the
November 2012 election that saw vot-
ers handily approve a tax measure that
Brown said was necessary to end the
budget cuts for schools, but the poll
revealed that a plurality of Californians
remain convinced that the economy and
jobs are the biggest issues facing the
state. People were divided on whether
they expect the economy to continue to
be a drag over the next year, but nearly
71 percent of those polled said
Congress’s priority should be to tame
the federal deficit this year.
The wariness of taxpayers also has
reached another state agency. The
California Department of Forestry and
Fire Protection, which this week asked
the state Board of Equalization to post-
pone billing this fiscal year on annual,
and much reviled, annual fire protection
Cal Fire wants to delay sending out
bills for the fee while it completes a
review of appeals filed by property
The fee was approved by legislators
in 2011 after Cal Fire’s budget has been
cut by $80 million and its firefighters
fought 1,400 more fires in 2012 than in
2011. So far, it’s been levied on about
800,000 owners of habitable structures
within the areas in which the state fire
agency is financially responsible for
prevention and suppression of wildfires.
Property owners can be billed as much
as $150 per habitable structure, but
about 97 percent of the owners subject
to the annual fee are within the bound-
aries of local fire protection agencies
and get $35 knocked off the amount
Taxpayer advocacy groups have
protested the fee from the start as an
illegal tax that should go to voters.
Courts will have to decide whether
they’re right, but considering the size of
the protest and the fact that homeown-
ers feel they’re being double billed for
fire protection, the fee should perma-
nently be scrapped.
Less support for spending more
Oh brother
ren’t you related to ...? Isn’t he your brother?
Which one of you is older?
All through my school years, the questions followed
me like an unwanted kitten swatting at my ankles.
Actually, it is more fair to say the questions preceded me
as anyone with an older sibling knows. Before you even
get the chance to make your mark on the world, the
image and legacy of that
older brother or sister —
good, bad and everything
in between — is already
implanted in the minds of
teachers, students, friends
and anybody linked to the
local hangouts. When the
age gap is as close as it is
between my brother and I,
there wasn’t even the small
respite of a few years
before his jump into junior
high or high school and its
new batch of faces was
quickly followed by my
He was one of the cool kids, one of the fun guys, one
of the ones all the girls were clamoring to date and who
teachers knew as the one with the smart remark in the
back of the class. If I tried to be the same, I’d be a copy-
cat. If I veered away, I’d purposely be trying to differen-
tiate myself. Perhaps that’s why without saying so we
agreed to keep our distance during school hours and drew
lines among friends. With age, we’d finally stopped
drawing on each other’s faces while sleeping and other
bouts of sibling warfare but that didn’t mean we always
wanted to acknowledge the other Durand working
through the public school system. It wasn’t the Hatfields
and McCoys, but enough of a demarcation to divvy up
the extracurriculars and lunch spots.
If only I were older, I would think. Then I would be the
one setting the course. When we were much younger, I
might have also been the one teaching him questionable
displays of faux martial arts and hiding his favorite toys
till he cried, but the teenage years are when most of the
annoying questions came about how we were related.
Granted, his going first did have a few benefits — sage
advice about which high school hallway was “accept-
able” for locker locations as not to be mislabeled as a
geek, gangmember or general loser; the ability to sneak
in my own shenanigans when the adults were busy con-
templating his more obvious rebellion; parental-ordered
But mostly, being older always seemed better. Now,
though, as we both trudge our way to middle age and his
daughter teeters on the kindergarten age I was when
those lifelong sibling questions began, the perspective is
a little different.
To mark his adding one more notch on the birthday
roster tomorrow, I gave him a framed photograph of our-
selves taken goodness only knows how many years ago.
At least a decade had passed, I estimate, based on my
lack of crow feet and his presence of hair, his lack of tat-
toos and my wearing of some sweater long since sent to
The aesthetic differences weren’t lost on my young
niece who, without prodding, looked at the snapshot,
looked at both of us, and innocently asked, “Daddy, this
was a long time ago, wasn’t it?”
Little did she know at this same birthday shindig her
daddy, aunts and the like spent a solid stretch in the
kitchen sharing the aches and pains of adulthood strongly
peppered with a listing of procedures. I had to drink this
first. Oh yeah? Well, they had to poke this. Squish that.
X-ray this. Examine that. Forget drinking anybody under
the table. These days, the birthday boys and girls are
busy one-upping each other with the unexpected surprises
of age and those of us slightly younger are grateful we
haven’t hit that point quite yet.
Back when that photo was taken, I undoubtedly never
thought we’d be having that creaky conversation. Back
when we were bratty kids, I undoubtedly never thought
we’d be having a friendly conversation at all. Time cer-
tainly changes things while managing to fly by way too
And so in that celebratory vein, let me use this space to
tell my big brother those three little words I would never
before have thought to share — glad you’re older.

CUPERTINO — Apple’s ring-shaped,
gleaming “Spaceship Headquarters” will

orchard for engineers to wander. Google’s new
Bay View campus will feature walkways
angled to force accidental encounters.
Facebook, while putting final touches on a

bike shop, is already planning an even larger,
more exciting new campus.
More than ever before, Silicon Valley firms
want their workers at work.
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has gone so far
as to ban working from home, and many more
offer prodigious incentives for coming in to

This spring, as the tech industry is soaring
out of the Great Recession, plans are in the
works for a flurry of massive, perk-laden head-
“We’re seeing the mature technology com-
panies trying to energize their work environ-
ments, getting rid of cube farms and investing
in facilities to compete for talent,” said Kevin
Schaeffer, a principal at architecture and
design firm Gensler in San Jose. “That’s
caused a huge transition in the way offices are
laid out.”
New Silicon Valley headquarters or expan-
sions are under way at most of the area’s major
firms, including eBay, Intel, LinkedIn,
Microsoft, Netflix, Nvidia and Oracle. Many
will be huge: Apple Inc.’s 176-acre campus
will be one of the world’s largest workplaces.
On the outside, many of the new buildings
boast striking architectural designs and will
collectively be among the most environmen-
tally friendly in the country. Inside, there are
walls you can draw on, ping pong tables, Lego
stations, gaming arcades and free haircuts.
Critics say that while some workplace perks
and benefits are a good thing, the large, multi-
billion dollar corporate headquarters are colos-
sal wastes of money that snub the pioneering
technology these firms actually create.
“Companies led by older management tend
to be very controlling, but when I look at peo-
ple in the 20s or 30s, they’re totally capable of
working on their own and being productive,”
said Kevin Wheeler, whose Future of Talent
Institute researches and consults on human
resources for Silicon Valley businesses. “To
have artificial structures that require every-
body to be in the office at certain hours of the

Wheeler said he thinks Yahoo called every-

into a culture of laziness,” and that the firm
will likely loosen the restrictions soon.

Silicon Valley’s happy workplace culture,

NEW YORK — J.C. Penney is honing
in on its home department as part of a
bigger plan to turn its stores into mini-
malls of sorts.
The struggling department-store chain
is unveiling revamped home areas with-
in its stores that feature 20 boutiques that
highlight 50 new brands. The areas will
include an eclectic mix of items, from
$60 Michael Graves’ stainless steel
teakettles to $1,850 Jonathan Adler
“Happy Chic” sofas.
The home areas, which Penney will
begin to roll out Friday at 500 of its
1,100 stores, will test CEO Ron
Johnson’s plan to open separate shops-
within-stores for popular designers. The
format, which gives department stores
more of a mini-mall feel, have been pop-
ular at higher-end rivals such as Macy’s
and Bloomingdale’s for years.
Penney, which already has rolled out
mini shops-within-stores for popular
clothing designers like Joe Fresh, hopes
the new home areas will help it woo
back shoppers. The chain is struggling to
rebound its business after losing a quar-
ter of its revenue and amassing nearly $1
billion in losses in the past year since it
began tweaking everything from its pric-
ing to its stores. The revamp of the home
areas presents a big opportunity for the
retailer to regain its footing.
While home sections typically are
among the least profitable of a depart-
ment store, they help to drive customers
into the store. And demand for home fur-
nishings is rebounding along with the
U.S. housing market: Sales of furniture
and home decor reached $92.9 billion
last year, up 7.8 percent from the low of
$86.2 billion in 2009 during the reces-
sion, according to spending tracker
MasterCard Advisors’ SpendingPulse.
“It’s going to be a struggle, but the
home area could generate some momen-
tum,” says Walter Loeb, a New York-
based independent retail consultant.
But Penney, based in Plano Texas, has
its work cut out for it. Penney was plan-
ning to anchor its home areas with the
Martha Stewart lifestyle brand. But the
company is fighting in court with
Macy’s over whether Macy’s has exclu-
sive rights to sell certain Martha Stewart
products like bedding, cookware and
bath items.

BEIJING — Apple issued an apology
to Chinese consumers Monday after
government media attacked its repair
policies for two weeks in a campaign
that reeked of economic nationalism.
A statement Apple posted in Chinese on
its website Monday said the complaints
had prompted “deep reflection” and per-
suaded the company of the need to revamp
its repair policies, boost communication
with Chinese consumers and strengthen
oversight of authorized resellers.
State broadcaster CCTV and the rul-
ing party’s flagship newspaper, People’s
Daily, had led the charge against the
iconic American company. They accused
Apple of arrogance, greed and “throw-
ing its weight around” and portrayed it
as just the latest Western company to
exploit the Chinese consumer.
The attacks quickly backfired, though,
and were mocked by the increasingly
sophisticated Chinese consumers who
revere Apple and its products. State-run
media also inadvertently revived com-
plaints over shoddy service by Chinese

Safeway CEO’s pay dips slightly as bonus falls
NEW YORK — Safeway CEO Steve Burd took a slight
pay cut in 2012 as the grocery store operator cut his per-
formance-based bonus.
The Pleasanton-based company gave Burd a pay package
worth $9.91 million for the year, which was down 1 percent
from the $9.97 million he was given in 2011, according to an
Associated Press analysis of a filing with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.
The compensation included $1.5 million base salary,
which was unchanged from the previous year. Burd was also
given $5.7 million in stock awards and another $1.3 million
in option awards. Taken together, that was more than the

By Beth Harris
LOS ANGELES — After an erratic first
inning, Matt Cain settled down and tossed six
scoreless innings for the San Francisco Giants.
It still wasn’t enough, not on a day when
Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw outdueled him
on the mound and at the plate.
Kershaw launched his first career home run
to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning,
then finished off a four-hitter Monday that led
Los Angeles to a 4-0 win on opening day.
“That’s definitely what you expect when you
go out there and face Kershaw,” Cain said.
“You know he’s going to bring it.”
Cain made his first career opening day start
for the defending World Series champions. He
allowed four hits, struck out eight and walked
one. The right-hander threw 93 pitches, includ-
ing 32 in the first inning alone, when he hit
Mark Ellis.

some zeros,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy

Scott Taggart, Burlingame’s No. 1 singles
player,won all three of his matches in straight
sets last week, improving his record to 10-2.
By Nathan Mollat
Burlingame tennis coach Bill Smith has seen
changes in his No. 1 singles player, Scott Taggart,
not only physically but mentally.
All those changes were on display last week as
Taggart, a sophomore, went undefeated in three
matches, winning in straight sets in all of them, in
earning Daily Journal Athlete of the Week hon-
“You always expect a kid to come back bigger,
faster, stronger. However, in tennis that can be a
problem,” Smith said. “That can throw off his
timing. He’s better than last year. He’s just so
much more comfortable from point to point,
stroke to stroke.”
That’s quite a statement considering that, as a
freshman last year, he advanced to the finals of
the Peninsula Athletic League tournament and
earned a spot in the Central Coast Section tourna-
ment. This year, he has picked up where he left
off, compiling a record of 10-2 so far this season,
8-2 in PAL play.
“His midcourt game is markedly better,” Smith
said. “Putting the ball away at the end of a point,
he finishes with a much higher percentage.”

OAKLAND — Felix Hernandez struck out

King Felix surrendered one walk while pitch-

until John Jaso doubled to left-center with one out
in the fourth, only a couple of hours after the
pitcher gifted his former backstop with a Rolex
watch for catching his perfect game in August
against the Rays.
Hernandez (1-0) outdueled Brett Anderson
while making his sixth career opening day start
and fifth in a row, retiring the first 10 batters of the
game in order.

Hitters simply don’t go from jun-
ior-college ball one season to bat-
ting cleanup in a Division-I lineup
the next. At least not in the West
Coast Conference.
Then there is Zack Turner. The
University of San Francisco slugger
has anchored the Dons’ order by
batting cleanup in 24 of 27 games
this season. The junior transfer from
Cañada College got off to a hot start
by opening his USF career hitting at
a 12-for-20 clip, including a 4-for-4
day against UC Santa Barbara on
Feb. 22. Turner has been hitting in
the cleanup spot ever since.
Turner — a two-time All-Western
Catholic Athletic League catcher at
Serra, team MVP his senior year
with the Padres and a junior college
All American last year — is current-
ly hitting .317 with a team-best 18
RBIs in his first year with the Dons.
“Zack is the first junior-college
hitter I’ve seen at the Division-I
level that can go straight into the
middle of the order,” USF manager
Nino Giarratano said. “He started
off really hot (this year).”
Now imagine if Turner ever gets
fully healthy. Being utilized exclu-
sively a designated hitter this sea-
son, he has been plagued by a rota-
tor-cuff injury
he endured prior
to his sopho-
more year. After
being named
2010 Coast
P a c i f i c
C o n f e r e n c e
Player of the
Year at Cañada,
Turner trans-
ferred to Pepperdine along with fel-
low Colts standout Tony Cooper.
But after injuring his shoulder,
Turner never did take the field for
Pepperdine. The injury occurred
during a routine diving drill in prac-
tice. Turner dislocated his throwing
shoulder, causing tears to both the
labrum and the rotator cuff. After
undergoing surgery, he left
Pepperdine, and missed the entire
2011 season but returned to Cañada
as a redshirt sophomore last year.
Boy, did Turner make up for lost
time. He once again garnered con-
ference Player of the Year honors,
while batting .365 with 13 home
runs and 57 RBIs to win the confer-
ence triple crown. He also estab-
lished himself as a defensive third
baseman, earning Gold Glove hon-
ors at the hot corner.
While Turner had some offers to
play at distant D-I programs such as
Coastal Carolina, the San Carlos
native was intent on staying close to
home. And midway through the
2012 season, the dream began to
become a reality when USF took
interest in his abilities. The Dons
were tasked with replacing their two
most productive power hitters —
Nik Balog and former Burlingame
star Matt Chavez. So, by the close of
the season, Turner was clearly a per-
fect fit for the Dons.
“He’s going to be a great player,”
Giarratano said. “He’s a battler.
He’s battling through a lot of
injuries. If he ever gets completely
healthy, I think we’ll see the true
test off how great he can be.”
Perhaps Turner’s most impressive
hitting skill is his knack for squaring
up baseballs. A vast majority of
amateur power hitters have strug-
gled since the revolution of BBCOR
bats — a more pliable composite bat
with a much smaller sweet spot,
which was instituted across college
and high school baseball in 2011 to
protect pitchers from serious injury.
Turner, however, has thrived at the
Otherwise, power productivity
slowed in 2011 due to BBCOR bats.
In 2010 — the last season baseball
heard the old-school ping of stan-
dard aluminum — USF hit 52 home
runs as a team. In 2011, the Dons hit
31 homers. Across the WCC, six
players reached double-digits in
home runs in 2010, including USF
third baseman Stephen Yarrow, who
led the conference with 16 big flies.
In 2011, no one in the WCC reached
double-digits in home runs.
“It’s all about squaring it up,”
Turner said. “It doesn’t matter what
you’re using. It doesn’t matter if
you’re using a billy club or a
BBCOR bat. If you square it up, it’s
going to go.”
Turner’s former Cañada teammate
Steve Knudson isn’t far off. Before
taking a medical redshirt with a
shoulder injury this season,
Knudson provided a dangerous one-
two punch along with Turner in
Cañada’s batting order. As a fresh-
man in 2012, Knudson’s eight home
runs placed second only to Turner in
the Coast Pacific Conference.
“[Turner has] just got big-league
pop,” Knudson said. “The way he
swings the bat and the way he
torques everything in his swing, he
wasn’t going to slow down at all.
He’s been that way for years. Those
BBCOR bats were not slowing him
down one bit.”
Now it’s just a matter of Turner
getting back to some semblance of
full health, and getting back in the
squat. Since re-aggravating the
shoulder injury prior to this season,
he has been relegated to DH duty.
He has still been getting reps behind
the plate in practice. But his throw-
ing is not yet up to game speed.
“There’s been some setbacks,”
Turner said. “I know a lot of sur-
geons say some guys react better to
the surgery than others. Some take
two years, and some never come
back. We’ll see how it goes. We’ll
see how the rest of the progression
comes along. … It feels fine. We’re
just trying to cut down the throwing
as much as we can. And once we get
to a comfortable place, we’ll be able
to go in there.”
Giarratano marveled at Turner’s
inhibited performance thus far,
guesstimating the junior is currently
playing at 30 percent. But USF’s
15th year manager — who on
March 2 of last season surpassed
Dante Benedetti as the team’s all-
time winningest head coach — said
he’s optimistic that Turner will
eventually catch for the Dons.
“I know we took a risk on him
healing his arm and being able to
catch,” Giarratano said. “But he’s
been everything we thought he was.
… We thought he’d step in and be a
good player for us. He’s obviously
played very well and we’re very
impressed by that. But we had
hoped he would catch two [or] three
days a week. Right now we’re not
getting that, but eventually I think
we will.”
In the meantime, the Dons are
content with Turner catching fire at
the plate.

SPOKANE, Wash. — Layshia Clarendon
was the first to get her hands on the regional
championship trophy. Rightfully so, after get-
ting California somewhere they’ve never gone
before: the Final Four.
Clarendon scored 17 of her 25 points in the
second half and overtime, and California rallied
from down 10 with less than 7 minutes left to
beat Georgia 65-62 in the Spokane Regional
final and advance to the Final Four for the first
time in school history.
Clarendon and the second-seeded Golden
Bears became the first team from the western
U.S. other than Stanford to reach the Final Four
since Long Beach State in 1988. They did it
with a gritty rally down the stretch and big shots
by Clarendon, Afure Jemerigbe and Talia
During that 25-year span, eight different pro-
grams in the West have reached the regional
finals. But whether it was Long Beach State,
Washington, USC, UCLA, Colorado, Utah,
Arizona State or Gonzaga, they all came up one
game short — sometimes at the hands of
Stanford — from getting to the Final Four.
California, and second-year coach Lindsay
Gottlieb, finally broke the string. Gottlieb threw
her arms in the air when Shacobia Barbee’s des-
peration half-court shot at the buzzer bounced
off the backboard and wore a huge grin
throughout the postgame celebration.
Jemerigbe finished with 14 and Caldwell
added 10, with six coming in the final 3:30 of
regulation and in overtime.
California (32-3) was the selection of
President Obama when he filled out his NCAA
women’s tournament bracket. The Golden
Bears proved him right.
Barbee led Georgia (28-7) with 14 points, but
the Lady Bulldogs struggled down the stretch as
California chipped away at the lead. It was just
the third time this season Georgia lost after
leading at halftime.
Georgia managed to force overtime despite
going the final 7:45 of regulation with just one
field goal. That came when Anne Marie
Armstrong twice came up with offensive
rebounds and scored underneath with 8.5 sec-
onds left in regulation to force the extra session.
Clarendon’s 3-point attempt at the buzzer
bounced off the back of the rim.
Georgia played the final 2:20 of regulation
and all of overtime without point guard Jasmine
James after she fouled out picking up two quick
fouls in less than 40 seconds.

CLEVELAND — The Browns have discarded
another quarterback. Colt McCoy will start over
as a backup in San Francisco.
McCoy, who became expendable when
Cleveland signed veteran free agent quarterback
Jason Campbell last week, was traded Monday to
the San Francisco 49ers for two draft picks.
The Browns confirmed the deal on the same
day new coach Rob Chudzinski welcomed more
than 60 players — including McCoy — for the
start of the team’s voluntary offseason condition-
ing program.

“undisclosed” draft choices, but a person familiar
with the deal told The Associated Press the team
got a fifth- and seventh-round pick in this month’s

Cleveland’s sixth-round pick. The person provid-
ed details of the trade on condition of anonymity.

Last week, Browns CEO Joe Banner said the
Browns would not release McCoy and would look
for a trade partner. In San Francisco, the 26-year-
old McCoy will compete with Scott Tolzien to
back up Colin Kaepernick. The Niners have been
looking for a reliable backup since trading Alex
Smith to Kansas City at the start of free agency.
A popular player with some Cleveland fans
who felt he never got a fair shake, McCoy will
also be reunited in San Francisco with former
Browns kicker Phil Dawson, who recently signed
a one-year free agent deal with the Niners.

ALAMEDA — The Oakland Raiders are
changing directions at quarterback once again.
The Raiders acquired Seattle backup Matt
Flynn on Monday for draft picks, bringing an
end to Carson Palmer’s brief tenure as starter
in Oakland even before they are done paying
the steep price they dealt to acquire him.
“Matt’s one of those guys, even though he
hasn’t had a lot of opportunities, when he’s
had those opportunities, he’s made the most
out of those chances,” Raiders coach Dennis
Allen said. “We feel real good about that, and
feel real good about getting a young prospect
at quarterback.”
Oakland will send a fifth-round pick in 2014
and a conditional pick in 2015 to Seattle.
Flynn will compete with Terrelle Pryor for the
starting job with Palmer on his way out of
Fox Sports reported Palmer was expected to
be dealt to Arizona for a draft pick. The
Raiders traded a 2012 first-round draft pick
and 2013 second-rounder to Cincinnati for
Palmer during the 2011 season.
Palmer fell one game short of the playoffs
that season and the Raiders then regressed and
went 4-12 this past year. With Palmer owed
$13 million for this season and reportedly
unwilling to take a pay cut, the rebuilding
Raiders went a different direction.
“When we looked at it, both from his stand-
point and our standpoint, we just realized that
it was time for us to move on and move for-
ward,” Allen said. “We felt like Matt Flynn
gave us a great option.”
After showing promise as a backup with the
Packers, Flynn signed a three-year, $26 mil-
lion deal with the Seahawks, but failed to beat
out rookie Russell Wilson for the starting job
and quickly became expendable.
Flynn, a backup in college at LSU to former
Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell, has
started just two games in five seasons as a pro.
But it’s those brief appearances that intrigue
many NFL teams.

Rory McDaid, Capuchino baseball.
McDaid had a big hand in the Mustangs’ 4-3
win over Aragon Friday afternoon. He drove
the tying and go-ahead runs with a fifth-inning
single and also threw 3 1/3 no-hitting innings
in relief to pick up the win.
Phil Caulfield, Burlingame baseball. The
senior had a career day in the Panthers’ 12-4
win over Hillsdale. He hit a pair of home runs
and added a three-run double as he drove in
eight of the Burlingame runs.
Tommy Caulfield, Burlingame baseball.
Phil’s older brother — by seven minutes —
Tommy got the Caulfield party started
Wednesday with a dominating performance
on the mound in an 11-0 win over Hillsdale.
He pitched six innings, allowing only three
hits while striking out nine in picking up his
fourth win of the season.
Nicki Lunghi, Burlingame softball. The
three-year varsity player clubbed a pair of
triple and a double, driving in five runs in the
Panthers’ 11-1 win over Capuchino.
Kyle Vallans, Mills baseball. In two games
last week, the junior drove in five runs and had
five hits as the Vikings swept a pair of games
from South City. He also picked up the win on
the mound Friday with six solid innings of
work as Mills moved its Peninsula Athletic
League Ocean Division record to 4-0.
Jack Redman, Menlo School baseball.
Redman picked up a pair of wins for the
Knights as they won the Cupertino Lions Club
tournament. He pitched four innings of
shutout ball in relief in an 11-inning win over
Sierra and then threw five innings of shutout
ball against Kennedy-Sacramento, throwing
47 strikes on 59 pitches.
Arnie Sambel, Serra track and field.
Sambel finished fifth in the discus with a
throw of 154-4 and 10th in the shot put (49-
6.50) at the Stanford Invitational.
Honor roll
San Mateo County was well represented at
the Stanford Invitational track meet over the
weekend and there was a lot of success for
local athletes in the first real barometer of the
track and field season.
The Peninsula was especially strong in the
Mile race, with four local athletes finishing
in the top 20. The top finisher was Menlo-
Atherton’s George Baier, who finished eighth
with a time of 4:19.57. The winning time
was 4.12.74. Carlmont’s Tim Layten was
12th with a time of 4:21.25, Aragon’s Rory
Beyer was 17 in a time of 4:23.61 and Joey
Berriatua out of Serra was 20th with a time
of 4:25.95.
Beyer also finished eighth in the 3,000
with a time of 8:48.35.
For the complete results, which features
way too many local athletes to fit in this
space, go to
Current and former College of San Mateo
track athletes also excelled at the Stanford
Invitational. Current Bulldog Evan McDaniel
proved to one of the top shot putters in the
nation, finishing in third place in the invita-
tional event with a throw of 55-9. The win-
ning distance was 57-0.75. The only throwers
who bettered McDaniel hailed from Iowa
State and Cal State Northridge.
Anthony Capitulo, a freshman out of South
City, finished fifth in the javelin with a throw
of 187-5, about five feet short of the winning
A pair of former Mills standouts, brother
and sister Josh and Nicole Uikilifi, also had
strong performances. Nicole, who is at
Fresno State, won the hammer throw with a
mark of 180-6, about two feet further than
the runner up. She also had a 12th-place fin-
ish in the discus with a throw of 123-10.
Josh, who is at Cal State Stanislaus, was
12th in the collegiate division of the discus
with a toss of 50-3.

Taggart won his first four matches to start the
season, before suffering back-to-back losses to
Menlo-Atherton’s Reed Fratt and Carlmont’s
Corey Pang, the defending PAL champion.
Since then, he’s reeled off six straight wins, all in
convincing fashion.
Last week in his three wins, he dropped a total
of nine games. He dispatched Aragon’s Devon
Hughes 6-4, 6-0 Tuesday, followed that up with
a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Sacred Heart Prep’s Justin
Foster Wednesday and wrapped up his week
with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Mills’ James Tanjuatco
Friday afternoon.
His results only belie the confidence with
which he plays. Smith said Taggart came into his
freshman season with a lot of bravado and, while
he had the game to back it up, Smith said he may
have come in with unrealistic expectations.
“As a freshman, he came in kind of cocky,”
Smith said. “(This year) he’s kind of pulled back.
He’s a tennis player. He wants to play in college.
This (high school) is not the end for him.”
Smith said the mental changes have not come
through in his wins. Rather, it’s how he has han-
dled his losses that proved to Smith that Taggart
now knows there are guys who are just as good
— if not better — than he.
That being said, Taggart also knows he has the
game to beat the players who have beaten him
this season.
“He’s not searching for answers to beat those
guys now,” Smith said. “He knows now that if he
didn’t beat a guy, he knows he didn’t put in the
Like a lot of top high school players, Smith
said he basically lets Taggart do his own thing on
the court. He also knows he needs Taggart to set
the tone for the rest of the team. He is not only
the best player on the Panther squad, he is one of
the best players in the PAL and he needs to live
up to those expectations. Smith said he needs
Taggart to win at No. 1 singles more often than
not if the Panthers are going to have a chance at
winning team matches.
“We need him to do more than just fill a spot,”
Smith said. “The team expects it. We need him
to win at the 1.”
Not that Taggart has shied away from those
kind of expectations.
“This year he knows what his strengths and
weaknesses are,” Smith said. “He has a lot of
confidence, but he has a reason to be confident.
He’s a very, very good player.”

NCAA battles former
players’ lawsuit over revenues
SAN FRANCISCO — Four years ago, for-
mer UCLA standout Ed O’Bannon filed a law-
suit that has blossomed into one of the biggest
legal threats the NCAA has ever faced over the
issue of paying student athletes who attract
billions of dollars in revenue annually.
And as the men’s basketball tournament
reaches the Final Four, the most recent court
filing from the NCAA highlights how much is
at stake.
Weeks ago, the organization submitted more
than 2,000 pages of legal arguments urging a
judge to block the players’ attempts to turn the
lawsuit into a class action, which could put the
NCAA’s financial exposure into the billions.
U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken has
scheduled a hearing in June to consider the
class action request, which university adminis-
trators have lined up to oppose.
Sports brief
Tuesday • April 2, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Paul Larson
country’s economic
roller-coaster ride
has been interesting
and historic for
sure, but also very
troubling for many
families who’ve not
been as financially stable as others.
Recently though I’ve been observing a
phenomenon with those we serve at the
be too early to confirm, but it appears that
there is a general state of confidence with
many families, along with the decisions and
choices they make during funeral
arrangements. Yes, I know you are thinking
that “confidence” is not a term you would
use to coincide with “funeral arrangements”,
but it appears to me that people I see are
tending to be more financially assured than
during the deepest years of “The Great
They say that the two things you can’t
avoid are “death and taxes”. With that in
mind, during the economic downturn I saw a
very noticeable sense of “thrift” and
“prudence” with a lot of families who
experienced a death during that period.
Still, those who tended to “cost shop” at
various funeral homes selected CHAPEL
OF THE HIGHLANDS to handle funeral or
cremation arrangements. These families
found comfort with our service, and notably
with our more economic cost structure.
Now, lately the trend with families and
their funeral choices reminds me of the days
way before the recession hit. It’s not that
people are utilizing their funds differently,
spending more or spending less, but that
they are more assertive and confident when
using their wallet. Seeing this over and over
gives me a good indication that something in
the economic climate is changing compared
to not that long ago.
Even though many of our honorable
elected officials in Sacramento and
Washington D.C. appear to be as inflexible
with economic issues as always, the air of
confidence with the families I’ve been
dealing with means to me that these people
are feeling less pressured financially.
It is well known that when businesses do
well they hire more employees, and when
those employees are confident they will
spend their money on goods and services.
In turn, the companies that provide goods
and services will need competent employees
to create more goods, give more services,
and so on…making a positive circle for a
healthy economy. In relation to that, after a
long period of U.S. manufacturing jobs
being sent over-seas there is news of a
growing number of companies bringing this
work back to the United States. Real Estate
values on the Peninsula remained in a good
state during the recession, but houses here
are now in demand more than ever.
“Encouraging” “Hopeful” and “Positive”
are words to describe the optimistic
vibrations that people are giving off. If the
community is becoming more comfortable
with spending, that indicates good health for
business and the enrichment of our
economic atmosphere. I hope I’m right, so
let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

Cain had won his four previous starts against
the Dodgers since Aug. 1, 2010, going 4-0
with a 2.0 ERA in 10 starts.
“Kershaw moved the ball around and
changed speeds, and Cain did the same thing,”
Giants catcher Buster Posey said. “He went in
and out and threw some off-speed pitches for
strikes in big situations and was able to get
some swings.”
Cain figures always having to face an oppo-
nent’s No. 1 or 2 pitcher has only toughened
him up as a starter.
“It’s great,” he said. “You know what the
guy on the other side is going to do. But you
can’t worry too much about the other guy on
the mound. You’re expected to go out there and
throw the ball real well, and that’s what you try
to do every time out.”
Kershaw became the first pitcher to throw a
shutout and hit a home run in an opener since
Bob Lemon for Cleveland in 1953, according
Kershaw struck out seven, walked none and
retired World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval on
a grounder to end it.
The former Cy Young winner began the day
as a career .146 batter with only one extra-
base hit in 261 at-bats. But he sent the first
pitch from George Kontos (0-1) over the cen-
ter-field wall, triggering a standing ovation
and prolonged roar from the sellout crowd of
After high-fiving his teammates, Kershaw
tipped his cap from the dugout.
Kershaw became the first pitcher in the
majors to homer on opening day since Joe
Magrane of St. Louis in 1988, and the first
Dodgers pitcher to do it since Don Drysdale in
“I never knew what that felt like,” Kershaw
Dodgers Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax,
wearing his vintage No. 32 jersey, threw out
the ceremonial first ball. In 1964, Koufax
pitched the first opening-day shutout at
Dodger Stadium.
Then, another Dodgers lefty with a great
curveball dominated.
Kershaw pitched his sixth career shutout,
tossing 94 pitches in his third consecutive
opening day start. He has led the majors in
ERA each of the last two seasons, and there is
speculation he will soon be rewarded with a
long-term contract worth about $200 million.
While Kershaw (1-0) was resting after his
home run, the Dodgers broke it open.
Carl Crawford followed with a double in his
Dodgers debut and later scored on a wild pitch
by Santiago Casilla for a 2-0 lead. The
Dodgers got their last two runs on RBI
groundouts by Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis.
Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson was on
the mound before the game when manager
Don Mattingly came out and signaled for a

SAN JOSE — Joe Thornton had a goal and
an assist during a second-period scoring flurry
and the San Jose Sharks beat the Vancouver
Canucks 3-2 on Monday night for their fifth
straight victory.
San Jose broke a scoreless tie with three
goals in a span of 2:13 against Canucks goal-
tender Cory Schneider, then held on and com-
pleted a season sweep of Vancouver.
It didn’t come easy, as the Canucks got goals
from Chris Higgins and Alexandre Burrows to
pull within one. But the Sharks prevailed and
extended their longest win streak since taking
seven straight to open the season.
Trade speculation continues to swirl around
Sharks forward Ryane Clowe, who was a
healthy scratch, but the Sharks are grabbing
enough attention for what’s happening on the
ice. They remain in the No. 6 playoff position
in the Western Conference but trail Los
Angeles by just one point for the fifth spot.
The Sharks dominated the first period, out-
shooting Vancouver 14-6, but they couldn’t
convert a couple of prime opportunities.
Things changed quickly in the second period.
Andrew Desjardins beat Schneider from the
left side at the 7:41 mark to break a scoreless
tie, and less than a minute later Thornton out-
fought a Canucks player for a loose puck just
inside the blue line and blasted a wrister that
found the net for a 2-0 lead.
Sharks extend
winning streak
Josh Hamilton jumped into a cab, headed to
Great American Ball Park and got all nostalgic.
The Los Angeles Angels newcomer saw
Cincinnati fans packed downtown and remem-
bered making his big league debut in the same
spot a while ago.
“People are lined up in the streets, there’s the

All across the majors,
baseball was in full swing
Bryce Harper put on
quite a show in
Washington. The 20-year-
old star hit home runs his
first two times up and earned a few “M-V-P!”
chants during a 2-0 win over Miami.
At Target Field in Minnesota, players and fans
bundled up. It was 35 degrees with 17 mph
winds as the Twins took on ace Justin Verlander

“It’s whoever whines about it the least, I
think, who’ll have the best chance of winning
today,” Twins first baseman Justin Morneau
The slugger’s remedy for the cold?
“Put hot sauce all over and throw some long
sleeves on and some long johns and go out there
and run around and enjoy it,” he joked.
The hot chocolate line was 12 to 15 people
deep at the ballpark while the beer vendors were
generally talking among themselves.
“It’s opening Day. You can’t not come,” said
fan Ripley Peterson, dressed in six layers for the
chill. “I love baseball, I love the Twins. Opening
day is a special thing. Unless it’s like a blizzard,
I’m going to be here.”
The 2013 season officially opened Sunday
night when the Houston Astros beat Texas.
Most every other team was in action Monday.
From old rivalries on the coasts — Red Sox-
Yankees in New York, Giants-Dodgers in Los
Angeles — there was plenty to celebrate with a
dozen games.
“The three big holidays — Thanksgiving,
Christmas and opening day,” LA co-owner Stan
Kasten said, watching the stands at Dodger
Stadium fill up before the game against World
Series champion San Francisco.
Players, managers, coaches, umpires and
everyone else in uniform wore patches in tribute
to those killed last December in the shooting at
Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown,
At Yankee Stadium, the names of the 20 chil-
dren and six educators who died scrolled on the
video board in center field during a moment of
silence. The honor guard included members of
Newtown police and firefighters.
Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo had a
patch attached to a lapel on his pinstriped char-
coal suit. It has the seal of Newtown, a picture of
a black ribbon and 26 little black stars, each rep-
resenting a victim of that shooting.
“It’s so we don’t forget about the people in
Newtown,” Rizzo said, tapping the patch with
his hand. “It honors them and keeps them in our

hundreds of Hurricane Sandy responders and
volunteers in a pregame ceremony. A large
orange heart with a blue NY logo was placed in

The team donated 1,000 opening day tickets
to storm responders and those affected by the
First responders from several organizations,
including the NYPD and FDNY, lined up in uni-
form behind the infield dirt, facing the stands.

and San Diego Padres lined up along the base-
lines for pregame introductions
Singer and actress Emmy Rossum sang the
national anthem backed by 50 choir members
from the Scholars’ Academy School Chorus
from the Rockaways, an area hit hard by Sandy.
Opening day prompted Hamilton to recall his
first game in the majors, in Cincinnati in 2007
after he overcame years of drug abuse. The All-
Star outfielder who joined the Angels in the off-
season returned to Cincinnati for an unusual
interleague opener that was won by the Angels
3-1 in 13 innings.
“I enjoyed my year here,” he said. “It was the
beginning of everything that’s happened so far
in my career, so it’s always going to hold a spe-
cial place in my heart. It’s always fun to come
back to the places where you began.”
Stephen Strasburg threw the first pitch against
the Marlins at 1:09 p.m. That was 4 minutes
later than scheduled, because all the pregame
festivities, which included unveiling a red, white
and blue sign atop the outfield scoreboard that
read “NL East Division Champions” in all caps.
The parking lots at Miller Park were packed
hours before Milwaukee hosted Colorado. Fans
broke out their grills and passed around beers on
an unseasonably cold day.

BEIJING — Health officials say they
still don’t understand how a lesser-
known bird flu virus was able to kill two
men and seriously sicken a woman in
China, but that it’s unlikely that it can
spread easily among humans.
Two men in Shanghai became the first
known human fatalities from the H7N9
bird flu virus after contracting it in
February. A woman in the eastern city of
Chuzhou remains in serious condition,
China’s National Health and Family
Planning Commission said.
It was unclear how the three patients
became infected, the health agency said.
It sought to calm fears about the virus
but provided few details about each case.
Authorities have not described the
patients’ occupations or said whether
they had come into contact with birds or
other animals.
The health authority noted, however,
that two sons of one of the Shanghai
men also suffered from acute pneumo-
nia, one of whom died, and the source of
their infection is still unknown. Other
people who were in close contact with
the victims have not become sick, indi-
cating that the virus is not easily trans-
mitted between humans.
“We don’t know yet the causes of ill-
ness in the two sons, but naturally, if
three people in one family acquire severe
pneumonia in a short period of time, it
raises a lot of concern,” the World Health
Organization’s China representative,
Michael O’Leary, said at a briefing in
Beijing late Monday.
Many epidemiologists regard densely
populated parts of China and Southeast
Asia, where farmers often live in close
quarters with pigs and poultry, as
regions where conditions are ideal for
nurturing infectious diseases that jump
from animals to humans. An earlier
deadly outbreak of SARS, or severe
acute respiratory syndrome, was linked
to wild animals that infected animals,
which in turn infected people in that
Other strains of the H7 family of bird
flu viruses have caused mostly mild
human infections in the past, said

Malik Peiris, with cases reported in the

Netherlands, Canada, the U.S. and Britain —
mostly following outbreaks in poultry.
Experts say the deaths in China might indi-
cate that the H7N9 strain has morphed to
become more lethal to humans, although it’s
not possible to make any conclusions yet
about its mortality rate because many mild
cases may go undetected. A thorough tracing
of the virus is critical.
“I would guess that given the severity of
the human disease it is likely that these par-
ticular viruses have undergone the change to
become highly pathogenic but obviously that
remains to be ascertained,” Peiris said. “The
crucial question is the source of this virus,
where is it.”
Scientists have long feared that another
bird flu strain, H5N1, might mutate to spread
more easily. But while it has decimated poul-
try stocks mostly in Southeast Asia, it has
only occasionally sickened people — mostly
after close contact with infected poultry. It
can be deadly when it does infect humans,
though, killing about 60 percent of the time.
“At the moment, there has been not much
evidence of human-to-human transmission
(of H7N9) so to that extent it is similar to the
H5N1 situation, but it is early days and so
there’s a lot more to be understood,” Peiris
More than 16,000 pig carcasses were
fished out of the river system that supplies
some of Shanghai’s water supply in March,
apparently dumped by farmers after they
were sickened, and some observers have
wondered whether there might be a link
between the sickened pigs and the bird flu
deaths. Virologists also study pigs because
they can serve as hosts for bird viruses and
human viruses to mix and mutate.
However, O’Leary said the H7N9 infec-
tions pointed to an avian-type of flu, not a
pig disease, so he said he thought the timing
of the pig deaths was coincidental. But he
said that epidemiologists were looking at any
possible avenue of infection.
Scientists classify flus based on the pro-
teins on the surface of the virus: There are 17
varieties of hemagluttinin, the H in a flu’s
name, and 10 varieties of neuraminidase, the
N component. Any combination of those Hs
and Ns could crop up and potentially mutate
into a form that’s spread easily from person
to person, making it dangerous enough to
produce a pandemic.
Health authorities are monitoring 88 peo-
ple who came into contact with the H7N9
patients and have not found any additional
infections so far, China’s health agency said.
Experts say that indicates that the chance of
human-to-human transmission is low.
“It is very unlikely, because the virus has
to break the species barrier and this is usual-
ly quite a difficult event. There has to be a lot
of significant mutation,” said David Hui, an
infectious disease expert at the Chinese
University of Hong Kong.
One of the male victims of H7N9, who was
87, became ill on Feb. 19 and died on Feb 27.
The other man, 27, became ill on Feb. 27 and
died on March 4, the Chinese health com-
mission said. A 35-year-old woman in the
Anhui city of Chuzhou became ill on March
WHO’s O’Leary said it was difficult to
predict the lethality of the virus but such
emerging viruses tended to be more severe in
humans and authorities were always on the
lookout for a virus that might cause a severe
“This may be a dead-end ... there’s a few
sporadic cases, it’s hard to transmit to
humans and doesn’t transmit from human to
human,” he said. “But what we want to watch
out for is whether it is a virus that is both
serious for humans and easily transmitted.”

Community Partnership Parkway Summer
Youth Program and the Alternative to
Expulsion Intervention Program.
Superintendent Alejandro Hogan said the
district is proud of the two programs. The
Parkway program offers a four-week summer
course through a partnership with the South
San Francisco Parks and Recreation
Department, volunteers and donations.
Alternative to Expulsion Intervention was
started two and a half years ago to help give
students a different option.
During the 2008-09 school year, 342 stu-
dents were expelled in San Mateo County.
Seventy-two of those were from the South San
Francisco Unified School District, according
to the California Department of Education.
Oftentimes, the teens end up at either a con-
tinuation or community day school. While
both are good alternatives, the smaller com-
munities without as many extracurricular
opportunities are not a fit for all.
With the help of Patrick Lucy, who works
for the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, the
district started offering a program giving stu-
dents a chance to reflect, evaluate their deci-
sion-making skills, learn about opportunities
and return to school through a five-day pro-
gram. But it’s not just about the kids. Parents
and legal guardian participate as well, making
the program an educational experience for
Hogan said the option has had an incredible
impact on the district.

reached “substantial” compliance with the
court order.
The family complied with the court order
“within the spirit of the law,” Bayer said.
It was the city’s discretion to make that
determination, he said.
City officials are set to sit down with the
Klaibers April 11 to discuss compliance
issues ahead of a May 29 status conference
on a permanent injunction the city is seeking
to have the Klaibers complete work on the
interior of their home, which has been under
construction for more than a decade.
The family was relieved yesterday morn-
ing that they were found to be in compliance
with the court order. If they were not, the
cleanup could have cost them up to $25,000.
Most of the materials found on the proper-
ty yesterday were considered necessary for
the interior construction project or for Mark
Klaiber’s work as a reconstruction special-
Klaiber even lived in the tent a few months
ago as the city ordered the couple and their
two children to vacate the property related to
numerous code enforcement violations.
Some of the most recent code enforcement
violations the family were hit with include
use of the property as a dumping ground;
hazardous or unsanitary premises, debris,
junk, garbage and vegetation accumulations
on the property; fire hazard, excessive accu-
mulation of storage and many more.
They were issued a building permit in
2001 to construct a first-floor reduction and
a second-floor addition on the home but
those permits have been open for more than
10 years and a city building inspector deter-
mined the work should have taken no more
than two years to complete, according to a
previous claim against the family.

NEW DELHI — India’s Supreme
Court on Monday rejected drug maker
Novartis AG’s attempt to patent an updat-
ed version of a cancer drug in a landmark
decision that health activists say ensures
poor patients around the world will get
continued access to cheap versions of
lifesaving medicines.
Novartis had argued that it needed a
patent to protect its investment in the
cancer drug Glivec, while activists said
the drug did not merit intellectual prop-
erty protection in India because it was
not a new medicine. In response to the
ruling, Novartis said it would not invest
in drug research in India.
The court’s decision has global signifi-
cance since India’s $26 billion generic
drug industry, which supplies much of
the cheap medicine used in the develop-
ing world, could be stunted if Indian law
allowed global drug companies to extend
the lifespan of patents by making minor
changes to medicines.
Once a drug’s patent expires, generic
manufacturers can legally produce it.
They are able to make drugs at a fraction
of the original manufacturer’s cost
because they don’t carry out the expen-
sive research and development.
Pratibha Singh, a lawyer for the Indian
generic drug manufacturer Cipla, which
makes a version of Glivec for less than a
tenth of the original drug’s selling price,
said the court ruled that a patent could
only be given to a new drug, and not to
those which are only slightly different
from the original.
“Patents will be given only for genuine
inventions, and repetitive patents will not
be given for minor tweaks to an existing
drug,” Singh told reporters outside the
Novartis called the ruling a “setback
for patients,” and said patent protection is
crucial to fostering investment in
research to develop new and better drugs.
Ranjit Shahani, the vice chairman and
managing director of Novartis India, said
the ruling “will hinder medical progress
for diseases without effective treatment
He said the court’s decision made India
an even less attractive country for major
investments by international pharmaceu-
tical companies.
“Novartis will not invest in drug
research in India. Not only Novartis, I
don’t think any global company is plan-
ning to research in India,” he said.
The Swiss pharmaceutical giant has
fought a legal battle in India since 2006
to patent a new version of Glivec, which
is mainly used to treat leukemia and is
known as Gleevec outside India and
Europe. The earlier version of Glivec did
not have an Indian patent because its
development far predated the country’s
2005 patent law. Novartis said Glivec is
patented in nearly 40 other countries.
India’s patent office rejected the com-
pany’s patent application, arguing the
drug was not a new medicine but an
amended version of its earlier product.
The patent authority cited a provision in
the 2005 patent law aimed at preventing
companies from getting fresh patents for
making only minor changes to existing
medicines — a practice known as “ever-
Novartis appealed, arguing the drug
was a more easily absorbed version of
Glivec and that it qualified for a patent
because it was “a revolutionary treat-
ment,” not an incremental improve-
Anand Grover, a lawyer for the Cancer
Patients Aid Association, which led the
legal fight against Novartis, said the rul-
ing Monday prevented the watering
down of India’s patent laws.
“This is a very good day for cancer
patients. It’s the news we have been wait-
ing for for seven long years,” he said.
Aid groups, including Medicins Sans
Frontieres, have opposed Novartis’ case,
fearing that a victory for the Swiss drug-
maker would limit access to important
medicines for millions of poor people
around the world.
Glivec, used in treating chronic
myeloid leukemia and some other can-
cers, costs about $2,600 a month. Its
generic version was available in India for
around $175 per month.
“The difference in price was huge. The
generic version makes it affordable to so
many more poor people, not just in India,
but across the world,” said Y.K. Sapru, of
the Mumbai-based cancer patients asso-
“For cancer sufferers, this ruling will
mean the difference between life and
death. Because the price at which it was
available, and considering it’s the only
lifesaving drug for chronic myeloid can-
cer patients, this decision will make a
huge difference,” Sapru said.

Morris worked for St. Patrick’s as
director of finance beginning in 2004
and supervised Vallacqua. Morris was
given a credit card for seminary needs
but allegedly instead used her personal
card over a six-year span beginning in
2006. She would later reimburse herself
from the institutions so she could accu-
mulate airline miles for the purchases,
according to prosecutors.
Doing so is not illegal but when St.
Patrick’s learned of Morris’ reimburse-
ment method it launched an audit, said
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
The audit reportedly uncovered that
Morris had made $166,000 worth of
unauthorized personal purchases for
which she also reimbursed herself from
seminary funds and overpaid herself at
least $36,000 in 2011 to 2012, according
to prosecutors.
Wagstaffe didn’t know what exactly
what Morris spent the money on.
Prosecutors also claim Morris stole
a 1982 Mercedes Benz that had been
donated to St. Patrick’s by registering
the vehicle in her name and charging
the registration and maintenance costs
back to the seminary.
Vallacqua helped Morris with the
reimbursement and also received sever-
ance payments although she never left
the seminary’s employment, Wagstaffe

Cal Fire proponents say a stand-alone
fire department will be too costly and
short-staffed and are emboldened by a
San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury
reports that indicated Cal Fire serves the
coast well.
A stand-alone fire department will rely
on unbudgeted overtime and will cost at
least $1.4 million per year more than Cal
Fire over the next five years, recall pro-
ponents said.
But Mackintosh, Alifano and Riddell
contend Cal Fire is not responsive to the
needs of the coast and would be better
served by having a fire chief who
answers directly to the board.

Gandee lived for the outdoors, often
going on muddy, off-road thrill rides in
the hills near his West Virginia home. A
recent late-night escapade ended in
tragedy for the MTV reality show cast
member and two others.
The popular “BUCKWILD” cast
member was found dead Monday inside
a sport utility vehicle belonging to his
family that was found partially sub-
merged in a deep mud pit about a mile
from his home near Sissonville, authori-
ties said. Also inside were the bodies of
his uncle and another man.
Kanawha County Sheriff’s Cpl. B.D.
Humphreys said the red-and-white 1984
Ford Bronco’s muffler was below the
surface and that mud covered the pas-
senger side. No foul play is suspected.
Authorities said the cause of the
deaths was still under investigation and
they refused to speculate on what hap-
pened. If the muffler was submerged and
the engine kept running, it’s possible the
cabin of the vehicle could have filled
with fatal carbon
monoxide from the
Shain, nicknamed
“Gandee Candy” by
fans, was a breakout
star of the show that
followed the antics of
a group of young
friends enjoying their
wild country
lifestyle. It was
filmed last year, mostly around
Sissonville and Charleston. Many of its
rowdy exploits were his idea. In one
episode, he turned a dump truck into a
swimming pool.
Gandee was a true outdoorsman, shed-
ding modern conveniences such as cell
phones and computers for his proud red-
neck ways. He loved to hunt, ride all-ter-
rain vehicles and go “mudding,” or off-
road driving. He went mudding in the
show’s first episode and ruined his pick-
up truck’s motor.
“Shain always rides with these kids in
four-wheelers and trucks,” said a neigh-
bor, Swanna Frampton, who had known
him since he was a small child. “They
were just out riding and having a good
Frampton said the 21-year-old Gandee
“loved to live and have fun. He was a
great person. He did what (the show)
wanted him to do, but he wasn’t like
that. He was a real person. If you needed
help, if (you) needed something, he
would come help you no matter what.”
Humphreys said Gandee, his 48-year-
old uncle, David Gandee, and 27-year-
old Donald Robert Myers were last seen
around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar and they
told people they were going driving off-
State police were getting ready to send
out an aviation unit to search for the men
when authorities received a call Monday
morning. Humphreys said the SUV was
found by one of Shain Gandee’s friends
next to a trail used by four-wheel drive
vehicles, about 15 miles outside of
The terrain in the Thaxton Hollow
area was “very muddy, very rough,”
Humphreys said, and responders had to
use all-terrain vehicles to get to the site.
Humphreys did not provide details on
the condition of the bodies.

BEIRUT — March was the bloodiest month
yet in Syria’s 2-year-old conflict with more
than 6,000 documented deaths, a leading anti-
regime activist group said Monday, blaming
the increase on heavier shelling and more vio-
lent clashes.
Rami Abdul-Rahman, who heads the Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights, said the
increased toll is likely incomplete because
both the Syrian army and the rebel groups
fighting the government often underreport
their dead in the civil war.
“Both sides are hiding information,” Abdul-
Rahman said by phone from Britain, where
his group is based. “It is very difficult to get
correct info on the fighters because they don’t
want the information to hurt morale.”
The numbers, while provided by only one
group, support the appraisal of the conflict
offered by many Syria watchers: The civil war
is largely a military stalemate that is destroy-
ing the country’s social fabric and taking a
huge toll on civilians.
The increase also reflects the continuing
spread of major hostilities to new parts of
Syria. While clashes continue in Aleppo,
Damascus and Homs, Syria’s three largest
cities, rebels have launched an offensive in
recent weeks to seize towns and army bases in
the southern province of Daraa, largely with
the help of an influx of foreign-funded
The Observatory, which works through a
network of contacts in Syria, said those killed
in March included similar numbers of com-
batants on both sides: 1,486 rebels and army
defectors and 1,464 soldiers from the Syrian
But the number of civilians killed exceeded
them both: 2,080 total for the month, includ-
ing 298 children and 291 women.
In addition, there were 387 unidentified
civilians and 588 unidentified fighters, most
of them foreigners fighting with the rebels,
bringing the March total to 6,005, Abdul-
Rahman said.
He criticized the international community
for not doing more to stop the bloodshed,
which he said could increase.
Deadliest month: More than 6,000 Syrians killed in March
People search for casualties under the rubble at a site hit by what activists say was an air strike
in Daiaat Al-Ansari neighborhood, Aleppo, Syria.
