Great expectations: managing motherhood
Shelter sued
over eviction
Former resident files lawsuit against
Samaritan House, wants rule changes
By Heather Murtagh
Claiming to have been wrongfully evicted, a man who for-
merly called Safe Harbor Shelter home is suing Samaritan
House in hopes of changing the rules that dictate eviction of
tenants from temporary housing programs.
On Thursday, George Pierre, a 64-year-old disabled veteran,
filed a lawsuit against the local nonprofit claiming there are not
clear rules governing how a tenant is evicted from transitional
housing that receives government funds. Pierre argues that
nonprofits are encouraged to kick out long-term residents
since newcomers result in a higher payout. He’s hoping for a
change in the rules and at least $160,000 in damages along
with court costs.
Samaritan House Executive Director Kitty Lopez said the
nonprofit has not received official notice of the complaint but
is looking into the specifics of the case.
“In general, Samaritan House has clear procedures and

Having a baby can be the most
rewarding experience in a person’s life.
But that does not mean child rearing is
without its challenges.
Many mothers find themselves striv-
ing to be the perpetually blissful mom —
an image that is often projected by soci-
Not many western social or cultural
beliefs allow for a range of feelings in
motherhood, said Helen Marlo, Ph.D.,
director of the Clinical Psychology
Master’s Program at Notre Dame de
Namur University.
“Motherhood is either idealized or
devalued,” said Marlo. “The pictures we
often have are of people who are severe-
ly struggling.”
Marlo has discovered that there is
actually a wide range of emotional chal-
lenges that mothers may face.
“Part of being a healthy human being
is having a range of feelings,” she said.
Many new moms have access to a
variety of support networks — family,
doctors and mothers groups — but
still do not have a resource for their
deeper emotional challenges. They
often feel alone and guilty about their
less-than-perfect feelings.

WATERTOWN, Mass. — A 19-year-
old Massachusetts college student want-
ed in the Boston Marathon bombing was
captured hiding in a boat parked in a
backyard Friday night and his older
brother lay dead in a furious 24-hour
drama that transfixed the nation and par-
alyzed the Boston area.
The bloody endgame came four days
after the bombing and just a day after the
FBI released surveillance-camera
images of two young men suspected of
planting the pressure-cooker explosives
that ripped through the crowd at the
marathon finish line, killing three people
and wounding more than 180.

Plenty to do for Earth Day
By Michelle Durand
Residents in most of San Mateo County
better have their reusable carriers handy by
Monday — that’s when bans of single-use
plastic and paper bags take effect in 12
cities and the county itself to coincide with
Earth Day.
All of the ordinances beginning are mod-
eled on the county’s template which was
crafted after a lengthy environmental
review process meant to head off any legal
challenge. Other cities also have bans on the
books but those don’t kick in until later. The
dozen cities joining the county Monday in
the ban are Burlingame, Daly City, Colma,
Brisbane, South San Francisco, San Bruno,
Pacifica, Portola Valley, Half Moon Bay,
Foster City, Belmont and Menlo Park.
San Mateo follows on June 6, followed by
San Carlos July 1, Redwood City Oct. 1 and
East Palo Alto on Oct. 2.
The ordinances allow patrons without
reusable bags to request a single-use paper
version from retailers for the price of first a
dime and, after Jan. 1, 2015, a quarter.
Retailers can voluntarily choose to give free
bags to food stamp and WIC participants.
Bags without handles for medicine and
newspapers or to segregate food that might
contaminate are exempt as are nonprofits
such as Goodwill. Restaurants can still send
food in to-go bags as public health officials
haven’t yet ruled out the possibility of
reusable bags leading to cross-contamina-

WEST, Texas — Buck Uptmor didn’t have
to go to West Fertilizer Co. when the fire start-
ed. He wasn’t a firefighter like his brother and
cousin, who raced toward the plant. But a
ranch of horses next to the flames needed to
be moved to safety.
“He went to help a friend,” said Joyce
Marek, Uptmor’s aunt. “And then it blew.”
Two days after the fertilizer facility explod-
ed in a blinding fireball, authorities
announced Friday that they had recovered 14
bodies, confirming for the first time an exact
number of people killed. Grieving relatives
filed into a church offering comfort for fami-
lies, as volunteers nearby handed out food to
those still unable to return to homes damaged
by the massive blast.
Ten of the dead were first-responders —
including five from the West Volunteer Fire
Department and four emergency medics, West
Mayor Tommy Muska said.
The dead included Uptmor and Joey
Pustejovsky, the city secretary who doubled
as a member of the West Volunteer Fire
Department. A captain of the Dallas Fire
Department who was off-duty at the time but
responded to the fire to help also died.
The explosion was strong enough to regis-
ter as a small earthquake and could be heard
for many miles across the Texas prairie. It
demolished nearly everything for several
blocks around the plant. More than 200 peo-
ple were hurt, and Muska said five first-
responders were among those who remained
hospitalized Friday.
The first-responders “knew it was danger-
ous. They knew that thing could go up at any
time,” said Ronnie Sykora, who was
Pustejovsky’s deacon at St. Mary of the
Assumption Catholic Church. “But they also
knew that if they could extinguish that fire
before it went up, that they could save tens of
lives, hundreds of lives. That’s why they were
in there.”
Following a tour of the rubble Friday, Gov.
Rick Perry told reporters the search-and-res-
cue phase for anyone still trapped was largely
finished. He said the state would offer help to
the 29-member local fire department that had
been “basically wiped out.”
“To the first-responders: I cannot say thank
you enough,” Perry said.
Earlier in the day, Edward Smith, a volun-
teer chaplain for the Dallas Police
Department, counseled firefighters at West’s
fire station.

Plans to open a Tesla showroom in
Burlingame will be discussed by the
Planning Commission Monday but the
possibility of disagreeing about sales tax
revenue remains.
On Monday, the Burlingame Planning
Commission is scheduled to vote on a
conditional use permit application to
allow the electronic car company to
open a sales and service shop at 50
Edwards Court. Work is already being
done to use the space as a Tesla service
center. The vote, which will allow the
sale of vehicles at the Burlingame loca-
tion, was postponed from earlier this
month to allow the Burlingame city
attorney to work with Tesla regarding
sales tax.
Burlingame’s position is it should get
tax revenue since the sales take place in
its city. On the other hand, Tesla’s model
has been to pay the tax to wherever the
car is delivered, Tesla representative
Matthew Mefford wrote in a January let-
ter to the city. For example, if a San
Mateo resident orders a car and, once
completed, the car is delivered to his or
her home, then that city would get the
sales tax. One of the conditions of the
permit’s approval, as suggested by staff,
is that Burlingame would get the tax rev-

SACRAMENTO — California’s
unemployment rate dropped in March to
9.4 percent as job growth in the state
continued to outpace the nation, figures
released Friday show.
The rate represented a drop from 9.6
percent in February and from 10.7 per-
cent during the same period a year ago.
California has added 286,000 jobs in the
past 12 months.
The decrease in March put
California’s unemployment rate at the
lowest level since December 2008, a
year after the recession began.
However, California still has the
third-highest jobless rate in the country.
The state is tied with Mississippi, and
ranks behind Nevada, at 9.7 percent,
and Illinois, at 9.5 percent.
The national unemployment rate
decreased in March to 7.6 percent.
California added 25,500 jobs in
March, with the largest gains in profes-
sional and business services, which
added 15,800 jobs, and information-
based companies, with 11,700 posi-
Construction, financial activities, edu-
cational and health services, hospitality
and government also added jobs,
according to the preliminary figures
released by the state’s Employment
Development Department.
Trade, transportation and utilities
posted the largest decreases, cutting a
total of 8,400 positions. Mining, log-
ging, manufacturing and other services
also reported fewer jobs.
Colusa County, a farming region
north of Sacramento, had the state’s
highest unemployment rate in March at
23.9 percent. Marin County was the
lowest at 5.2 percent.
California continues to add jobs faster
than the national rate, wrote Stephen
Levy, senior economist at the Palo Alto-
based Center for Continuing Study of
the California Economy.

High-speed rail agency changed bid criteria
SACRAMENTO — California’s high-speed rail authority
changed its rules for selecting a company to build the first
phase of the bullet train in a way that allowed a California bid-
der to emerge as the lead candidate despite having the lowest
technical rating for safety and design quality, a newspaper
reported Friday.
The process was changed without approval from the board
that oversees the California High-Speed Rail Authority, the Los
Angeles Times reported.
The change meant that a California consortium with the low-
est bid emerged as the front-runner.
It was one of many “improvements and refinements” made to
the request for proposal to get a “better quality product at a
lower cost,” said Rob Wilcox, a spokesman for the rail author-
ity. He said the board delegated Chief Executive Officer Jeff
Morales to make any necessary changes.
“There was a real concern that by not opening all the bids, it
could have left hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on the
table,” he said.
Sun-powered plane completes test flight
MOUNTAIN VIEW — A solar-powered plane that has
wowed aviation fans in Europe took to the skies Friday over the
San Francisco Bay Area in a successful test flight.
Considered the world’s most advanced sun-powered plane,
the Solar Impulse took off from Moffett Field in Mountain
View at first light for a two-hour practice run in advance of a
planned multi-city, cross-country tour.
“That’s a mythical step in aviation,” Andri Borschberg, one
of the plane’s pilots and creators, said about flying cross-coun-
try. “We are something like between 1915 and 1920, compared
to traditional aviation, when pioneers tried these non-stop

EPA: State failed to spend $455M on water projects
FRESNO — California has failed to spend $455 million of
federal money meant to improve water infrastructure in the
state, while thousands of people rely on groundwater laced
with nitrates and other contaminants, federal regulators said
The state has received more than $1.5 billion for its Safe
Drinking Water State Revolving Fund over the past 15 years,
but has failed to spend a large part of it in a timely manner,
according to a noncompliance letter from the U.S.

Effort to save Burlingame’s
Sam’s Italian Sandwich Co. to close Monday
More than $11,000 has been donated toward the effort to
help Sam’s Italian Sandwich Co. in Burlingame stay open and
the online effort will close Monday.
Costs for improving the site it’s called home since 2005, at
1080 Howard Ave., coupled with chain stores moving to the
area have created a challenging environment for the locally-
owned shop. In March, an online effort to help the mom-and-
pop shop was launched with the goal of raising $10,000. The
money will help get owners Rino Betti and June Williams
ahead of the curve. As of Friday, $11,035 was raised thanks to
96 donors from seven states.
The city of Burlingame has also offered support. Last
month, the City Council altered its lease with Sam’s to help
keep the shop open. The proposal lowers the monthly rent and
calls for the city to use the $4,000 security deposit to pay
delinquent rent and allow the tenant to pay $100 installments
toward a new deposit of $2,000, according to the contract.
Sam’s Italian Sandwich Company, originally located at 297
California Drive in Burlingame, opened in 1972.
Rising rents moved the shop slightly down the road to the
city-owned former Greyhound bus depot at the intersection of
Howard Drive, California Drive and Highland Avenue.

Local briefs
By Erica Werner
Marathon bombings cast a shadow Friday
over the start of debate on legislation to
remake the U.S. immigration system, as
some Republicans argued that the role of
two immigrant suspects raised questions
about gaps in the system.
There was no suggestion that the two
suspects, brothers who had lived in
Dagestan neighboring Chechnya in
southern Russia, had entered the U.S.
illegally. And authors of a sweeping
new immigration bill, which got its
first hearing Friday before the Senate
Judiciary Committee, argued that their
legislation would improve U.S. nation-
al security because the estimated 11
million people now living here illegal-
ly would have to come forward and
undergo background checks.
Still, a number of Republicans seized
on the events in Boston to raise questions
about the existing immigration system
and the changes proposed in the new bill.
And there were concerns among support-
ers of the legislation that, even if it turns
out that the bombing suspects did not vio-
late U.S. immigration laws, the events
could inflame anti-immigrant sentiment
just as Congress confronts the already for-
midable task of getting a far-reaching
immigration bill through the House and
Senate and to the president’s desk.
“Given the events of this week, it’s
important for us to understand the gaps
and loopholes in our immigration sys-
tem,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the
Judiciary Committee’s senior Republican,
said in his opening statement at Friday’s
hearing. “How can we beef up security
checks on people who wish to enter the
United States? How do we ensure that
people who wish to do us harm are not eli-
gible for benefits under the immigration
laws, including this new bill?”

NEW YORK — Searching for com-
promise on a divisive issue, the Boy
Scouts of America is proposing to par-
tially lift its long-standing exclusion of
gays — allowing them as youth mem-
bers but continuing to bar them as adult
The proposal, unveiled Friday after
weeks of private leadership delibera-
tions, will be submitted to the roughly
1,400 voting members of the BSA’s
National Council during the week of
May 20 at a meeting in Texas.
The key part of the resolution says no
youth may be denied membership in the
Scouts “on the basis of sexual orienta-
tion or preference alone.” A ban would
continue on leadership roles for adults
who are openly gay or lesbian.
Gay-rights groups, which had
demanded a complete lifting of the ban,
criticized the proposal as inadequate.
“Until every parent and young person
have the same opportunity to serve, the
Boy Scouts will continue to see a decline
in both membership and donations,” said
Rich Ferraro, a spokesman for the gay-
rights watchdog group GLAAD.
Chad Griffin, president of the Human
Rights Campaign, said the BSA was too
timid. “What message does this resolu-
tion send to the gay Eagle Scout who, as
an adult, wants to continue a lifetime of
Scouting by becoming a troop leader?”
he asked.
Some conservative groups assailed the
proposal from the opposite direction,
saying the ban should be kept in its

WASHINGTON — Social Security’s
disability program is overwhelmed by
so many claims that judges sometimes
award benefits they might otherwise
deny just to keep up with the flow of
cases, according to a lawsuit filed by the
judges themselves.
The Social Security Administration
says the agency’s administrative law
judges should decide 500 to 700 disabil-
ity cases a year. The agency calls the
standard a productivity goal, but the
lawsuit claims it is an illegal quota that
requires judges to decide an average of
more than two cases per workday.
“When the goals are too high, the
easy way out is to pay the case,” said
Randall Frye, president of the
Association of Administrative Law
Judges and a judge in Charlotte, N.C.
“Paying the case is a decision that might
be three pages long. When you deny
benefits, it’s usually a 15- or 20-page
denial that takes a lot more time and

Beware of the
eye of the beholder
The United States’ conflict with
North Korea is an Asian replay of the
Bush Doctrine in reverse. The doctrine
alleges that when a country is perceived
as a threat to attack you, then you are
justified to attack it before it attacks
you. The perception of a threat does
not necessarily mean there will be an
attack. However, the Bush Doctrine
believes that you may not afford to wait
for proof of an attack. The validity of
the threat, then, is in the eye of the
President Bush perceived Iraq to be a
threat to attack the United States. Iraq
neither threatened nor possessed the
weapons to attack. Nevertheless,
President Bush ordered a preemptive
strike before any prospective mush-
room clouds could appear.
Any country can use the Bush
Doctrine. The Japanese anticipated it at
Pearl Harbor. And, now Kim Jong Un
of North Korea is using the military
strategy of the Bush Doctrine against
the United States. He has perceived a
threat of attack from the United States.
And, to its astonishment, Kim Jong Un
has threatened a preemptive strike. The
preemptive strike is not only justified,
but it is also a proven defense against a
perceived attack. It accomplished its
mission in Iraq and at Pearl Harbor.
What will Kim Jong Un accomplish
with a preemptive strike? Another
unnecessary war? Therefore, there is no
effective defense against the Bush
Doctrine if the eye of the beholder
wants to go to war.

Letter to the editor
By Mallika Kaur
hirty-year-old Amy (all names
have been changed to protect
identities), a successful Bay
Area entrepreneur, had a perpetual
scowl and finally voiced that she is
sick of it: missing important meetings
and social events, employing her kids
as an excuse, when in fact she hasn’t
slept the night before because her hus-
band kept alternating between threat-
ening sex and yelling at her for not
knowing her worthlessness.
While each April marks tulips,
spring showers, blossoms, perhaps a
re-reading of T.S. Eliot’s Wasteland, it
also marks events by anti-violence
advocates across the United States.
These events remind us that sexual
violence, far from being extraordinary,
is sadly folded into the ordinary course
of life for many like Amy. April is sex-
ual assault awareness month.
The nation has come to understand
“acquaintance rape” somewhat more in
recent times, especially with publi-
cized cases like the repeated gang rape
of the 16-year-old Stubenville, Ohio
teen for which two high school foot-
ball players were recently convicted.
But these conversations are often
reserved for our teens and college stu-
dents, entering the world of parties,
newly unsupervised, experimenting
with new relationships. The conversa-
tion often stops at the threshold of
more formalized relationships, espe-
cially marriage.
In fact, one out of every 10 hetero-
sexual women in the United States
have been raped by an intimate partner
in their lifetime, as per 2010 findings
in a report by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
The silence of complicity around
such violence in relationships rein-
forces two related myths: that rape is
somehow equivalent to sex and that
sex is somehow a right in a relation-
ship. Thus, the part-
ner who discloses
rape in their rela-
tionship is often left
shamed and blamed,
rather than support-
ed. The Amys
around us continue
to seethe and suffer
in silence, knowing
that a black eye might yield some
sympathy but the soreness between her
legs is still taboo.
“Partner rape” is neither surprising
nor uncommon to those of us who
work with domestic violence sur-
vivors. Sexual violence is often the
least reported aspect of domestic vio-
lence, whether to the police or even to
confidential advocates or lawyers.
While the usual myths (“she must have
done something”; “he just has an
anger problem;” “she’s a drama
queen”) make the reporting of domes-
tic violence extremely difficult, the
rape within a relationship is particular-
ly difficult because it is particularly
Take 50-year-old Kalinda, whose ex-
boyfriend doesn’t even have to be in
the home to keep her up at nights.
Since he complies with his restraining
order only selectively, Kalinda lies
awake listening to each sound, expect-
ing yet another break-in. When she
called the police two years ago, the
first and last time she ever reported
sexual abuse, a young officer asked
her, with empathy, but also incredula-
tion, “Why do you let him in when
you hear him?” “I don’t let him do
anything,” she later told me. “He does-
n’t even let me close the bathroom
door when he is around. ... I have little
control once he has made up his mind.
And ... with this … well, I don’t want
to wake up the neighbors ... with his
banging at the door.”
Kalinda is no weak woman. She has
fought for the protection of herself and
her children long and hard. She reports
violations of the domestic violence
restraining order, and uses the proper
channels as far as possible. But when
it comes to the rape, she can’t bring
herself to speak about it to the police
officers or even confiding in her
Forcing Kalinda to report that which
she finds unspeakable is re-traumatiz-
ing. But we speak openly, without
shame, about the rape as a tool of
power and control. We break the
silence, even if behind a closed door,
within the security of four walls.
That’s a start.
This April, as we remind our boys
and girls about true consent, about
avenues of support and about breaking
the silence, let’s not stop at the
precipice of adult relationships. April
is a reminder of how much more un-
silencing we can and must support.
“I need this to stop. I need to know
and model a healthy relationship for
my daughters,” said Amy, who usually
has to choose more mundane work-life
balance conversations over lattes with
friends, and has struggled to speak out
about her ordeals. The good news for
Amy is that, hard as it still is, there are
resources to help her navigate toward
safety. She is certainly not alone.

Unsilent April
Boston, one day later
By Chuck McDougald
s I write this, it has barely been 24 hours since
the terrorist attack in Boston during the running
of the Boston Marathon. One day later, my
heart is heavy with sadness about the deaths and the ter-
rible maiming caused by improvised explosive devices
designed to cause as much damage as possible to partici-
pants and spectators alike. My thoughts and prayers go
out to the victims, their families, the first responders and
the people of Boston. I pray for God’s
mighty hand to be with those who are
conducting the investigation.
This terrible attack reminds us that
we live in perilous times. As of now,
we don’t know who committed this
attack or what their agenda might be.
But, we do know there are people in
the world who want to hurt others and
who will go to any extreme to do so.
We know that evil, which at times seems far away on dis-
tant shores, can again appear in our midst even on anoth-
er bright, sunny and glorious day.
The pictures and videos are seared into my mind.
Explosions. Screams. Blood. Anguish. Chaos. Fear.
Yet something else is pushing out those memories.
Something else is straining to be heard, to be recognized
and to be celebrated. That is the response of the runners,
the visitors, the crowd, the first responders and the citi-
zens of Boston.
The people of Boston showed such kindness to their
fellow man. They showed courage and they showed love
in action. They showed the basic goodness of human
beings who are willing to help each other. There will
always be bad guys and evildoers. So we must band
together to fight the evil and overcome it.
That is the American spirit. That is what has built our
country from disparate groups into a coherent whole.
That is the America that I know and that’s why today I
lift up and celebrate those who were there, those who
responded and those who helped in any way they could.
I am proud of the first responders, those who ran
toward the blasts and who were ready to treat and protect
the wounded. I am proud of their training, of the way
they did their duty and of the way took charge to calm
the chaos.
I am proud of the spectators and visitors who immedi-
ately offered aid to those injured around them, whether a
comforting word, a drink of water or an improvised
tourniquet to stanch the bleeding.
I am proud of Jessica Newman, 32, of Connecticut
who, the Washington Post reports, saw a bloody woman
in shock with shrapnel in both her legs. Newman didn’t
wait for others to lead or for the official paramedics to
arrive. Instead, she did what she could, running into a
coffee shop, pushing unknowing customers out of the
way and grabbing the paper napkins so she could stop
some of the bleeding. It worked, and the victim, trans-
ported to a nearby facility, was soon receiving medical
I am proud of the medical personnel on hand for the
race. Trained and ready for sports injuries, dehydration
and exhaustion they immediately shifted to life-saving
and limb-saving mode. Without them, even more victims
would have died.
And I am proud of the people of Boston. One day later,
they are “keeping calm and carrying on.” News reports
indicate that just one day later, they are back to work,
back to their schools and back to their families. They
intend to show, through their quiet actions, that terrorists
will not win, that their city will not bow down and that
their lives, though changed, will continue.
Today, one day later, is a sad day. Today, one day later,
is a day to resolve to fight evil in all its forms, from
wherever it may come. Today, one day later, is a day to
lift up those who help, those who run toward the blasts,
those who offer a drink of water.
Today, one day later, is a day I am proud to be an

Big movers
By Matthew Craft
NEW YORK — Strong earnings
from a pair of technology giants helped
the stock market recover some of its
losses Friday, a positive end to Wall
Street’s worst week in five months.
Microsoft and Google both beat
earnings expectations, yields of gov-
ernment bonds ticked up and copper —
a key industrial metal — continued its
fall, losing 2 percent.
Microsoft gained 3 percent to
$29.77, leading the Dow Jones indus-
trial average higher. The software giant
reported earnings late Thursday that
beat analysts’ forecasts and showed
solid results from its Office, software
tools and Xbox divisions.
Google’s stock climbed 3 percent to
$799.87. The leader in Internet search
boosted prices for ads distributed to
smartphones and tablet computers.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
rose 13.64 points to 1,555.25, an
increase of 0.9 percent. The Dow rose
10.37 points to 14,547.51, a gain of 0.1
percent. The Dow spent most of the
day down, pulled lower by disappoint-
ing results from IBM.
Traders, like everyone else, were fol-
lowing the news out of Boston, where
police were hunting for one of two
brothers suspected to be behind
Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings.
One brother was killed in a gun battle
with police overnight. But the news
had no impact on markets, traders said.
Friday’s slight gains couldn’t over-
come a tough week for the market,
when both the S&P 500 and the Dow
lost 2.1 percent. That’s their biggest
weekly drop since last November.
“Compared to the rest of the week, it
looks like we’re going to slide into the
weekend on a quiet note,” said Jim

Officer for Plante Moran Financial
By many measures, the financial

days. News that economic growth had
slowed in China set off a plunge in
commodity prices on Monday, leading
the stock market to its worst day of the
year. Gold dropped below $1,400 an
ounce for the first time in two years.
The stock market bounced back the
next day, then fell again on Wednesday,

WASHINGTON — For the third year
in a row, the nation’s economic recovery
has hit a springtime soft spot. Reflecting
that weakness, only 1 in 4 Americans
now expects his or her own financial sit-
uation to improve over the next year, a
new Associated Press-GfK poll shows.
The sour mood is undermining sup-
port for President Barack Obama’s eco-
nomic stewardship and for government
in general.
The poll shows that just 46 percent of
Americans approve of Obama’s han-
dling of the economy while 52 percent
disapprove. That’s a negative turn from
an even split last September — ahead of
Obama’s November re-election victory
— when 49 percent approved and 48
percent disapproved.
Just 7 percent of Americans said they
trust the government in Washington to do
what is right “just about always,” the AP-
GfK poll found. Fourteen percent trust it
“most” of the time and two-thirds trust
the federal government just “some of the
time”; 11 percent say they never do.
The downbeat public attitudes regis-
tered in the survey coincide with several
dour economic reports showing recent
slowdowns in gains in hiring, consumer
retail spending, manufacturing activity
and economic growth. Automatic gov-
ernment spending cuts, which are start-
ing to kick in, also may be contributing
to the current sluggishness and increased
wariness on the part of both shoppers
and employers. Overall, 25 percent of
those in the poll describe the nation’s
economy as good, 59 percent as poor —
similar to a January AP-GfK poll.
Respondents split on whether this was
a “good time” to make major purchases
such as furniture and electronic devices,
with 31 percent agreeing it was, 38 per-
cent calling it a “bad time” and 25 per-
cent remaining neutral.
The economy’s recovery from the
severe 2007-2009 recession has been
slow and uneven. Even so, most eco-
nomic forecasts see continued economic
growth ahead, even if it is sluggish and
accompanied by only slowly improving
levels of joblessness. Another recession
in the near future is not being forecast.
In the new poll, few say they saw
much improvement in the economy in
the last month. Just 21 percent say things
have gotten better, 17 percent say
they’ve gotten worse and 60 percent
thought the economy “stayed about the
same.” And the public is split on whether
things will get better anytime soon, with
31 percent saying the national economy
will improve in the next year, 33 percent
saying it will hold steady and 33 percent
saying it will get worse. Further, about 4
in 10 expect the nation’s unemployment
rate to climb in the next year.
And the public’s outlook for its own
financial future is at its worst point in
three years. Just 26 percent think their
household economic well-being will
improve over the next year, 50 percent
think it will stay the same and 22 percent
expect it to worsen.

NEW YORK — General Electric’s
first quarter results were dragged down
by deteriorating economic conditions in
Europe, highlighting the danger that the
region’s struggles still pose to the global
GE CEO Jeff Immelt said he expected
results in Europe to be bad in the quarter
— and they were worse. Revenue from
the region fell 17 percent compared with
last year.
“We planned for Europe to be similar
to 2012, down again, but it was even
weaker than we expected,” Immelt said
in a call with investors.
While GE’s results were roughly what
analysts expected and Immelt said the
company remained on track to meet its
financial goals for the year, his gloomy
comments about Europe and the weak
performance of the company’s core
industrial operations sent GE shares
GE shares dropped 92 cents, or 4 per-
cent, to close at $21.75 Friday.

ings rose in the first quarter, helped by

G-20 countries pledge stronger efforts
WASHINGTON — World finance leaders are pledging to
pursue further actions to bolster a disappointingly weak
global recovery. They also reaffirmed their commitment to
avoid using their currencies as an economic weapon to gain
unfair advantage in foreign trade.
Finance ministers and central bank presidents from the
leading rich and developing nations, or Group of 20,
wrapped up two days of talks Friday with a joint statement
that said they had managed to avoid some of the biggest
economic threats, but growth was still too weak in many
countries and unemployment too high.
The joint statement revealed no major new policy initia-
tives but did urge the United States and some other coun-
tries to emphasize efforts to jump-start growth even if that
meant less emphasis on deficit reduction in the near term.
“Further actions are required to make growth strong, sus-
tainable and balanced,” the G-20 said in their joint state-
The United States was represented at the talks by
Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, who was attending his first
G-20 meeting since taking office in late February, and
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. The discussions
were led by Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov
whose country is leading the G-20 this year.
The G-20 joint statement singled out the recent aggressive
credit-easing moves pushed by Japanese Prime Minister
Shinzo Abe, saying they were intended to stop prolonged
deflation and support domestic demand.
Airlines, pilots sue government to stop furloughs
WASHINGTON — Predicting a nightmarish air travel
snarl that will stretch from coast to coast, the airline indus-
try and the nation’s largest pilots union joined forces Friday
to sue the Federal Aviation Administration over its decision
to furlough air traffic controllers in order to achieve spend-
ing cuts required by Congress.
Two airline trade associations and the Air Line Pilots
Association said they have filed a lawsuit asking the U.S.
Court of Appeals in Washington to stop the furloughs,
which are scheduled to kick in on Sunday. However, the ear-
liest the court is likely to schedule a hearing is sometime
next week, after the furloughs have begun, said Nick Calio,
head of Airlines for America, which represents major carri-
The way in which the FAA has chosen to implement the
furloughs could result in one out of every three airline pas-
sengers across the country suffering flight delays or cancel-
lations, industry officials said at a news conference.
“The impact of these cuts on our industry cannot be over-
stated,” said Faye Black, vice president of the Regional
Airline Association, which joined the suit. “We think there
is not one airport in the nation that will be immune to this.”
Sunday is a light air travel day, but by Monday the effects
of the furloughs should start to “snowball,” creating an air
travel mess the equivalent of having a “Hurricane Sandy in
the North and Hurricane Katrina in the South,” said Lee
Moak, president of the pilots union.

While the singles players get most of the
attention at the high school level, most team
tennis matches are decided by the play of dou-
bles teams. A strong trio of tandems can be the
difference between a win and a loss.
So when the Burlingame and Aragon teams
split the four singles matches in their
Peninsula Athletic League tournament semifi-
nal match in San Mateo Friday afternoon, it
was the doubles teams that would decide the
match. Aragon swept all three to beat
Burlingame 5-2 and advance to Monday’s
championship match against Carlmont, which
beat Ocean Division champ Hillsdale 6-1 in
the other semifinal.
Burlingame coach Bill Smith said he’s been
trying to find the right combinations for his
doubles teams and it didn’t work out Friday.
“We’ve been trying to gel in doubles,”
Smith said. “Knowing the matchups, it didn’t
look good (for us) on paper.”
Aragon coach Dave Owdom had his own
issues with doubles. He was mixing and
matching all this week and put six players on
the court who had a grand total of eight
matches played with each other.

It’s impossible to replace one of the top
prospects in the game. Or, is it?
At the 2011 trade deadline, the Giants trad-
ed their top pitching prospect, Zack Wheeler,
to the Mets for one of the elite impact bats in
the game, Carlos Beltran. Beltran hit the dis-
abled list with a sprained wrist within weeks
after the trade, playing in just 44 games as the
Giants ultimately missed the playoffs.
Beltran left via free agency following the
season. Meanwhile, Wheeler has gone on to
become one of the elite prospects in the game.
At the outset of the season, the 22-year-old
right-hander was ranked the No. 11 prospect
in the game by Baseball America, and the fifth
best overall pitching prospect.
Well disheartened Giants fans, meet Chris
Stratton. The right-hander was the Giants first
overall draft pick in the 2012 draft — selected
20th overall out of Will Clark’s alma mater
Mississippi State — and has quickly emerged
as one of the top prospects in the organization.
And not only does Stratton bear an uncanny
resemblance to Wheeler on and off the mound,
the resemblance is so striking that Giants
minor-league pitching coach Steve Kline has
trouble telling them apart.
“It’s amazing, I always want to call him
Zack,” Kline said. “When I see him pitching
… I’m like, ‘Hey, Zack!’ They’re like: ‘No,
no. He’s Stratt.’ And I’m like: ‘Oh, Jesus.’”
The two esteemed prospects have also post-
ed similar results. Like Wheeler, Stratton is

SAN FRANCISCO — Angel Pagan lined a
game-ending double to right field with one out
in the ninth inning, and the San Francisco
Giants returned from a rough road trip to beat
the San Diego Padres 3-2 on Friday night.
Santiago Casilla (2-1) struck out two in a 1-
2-3 ninth for the win. Shortstop Brandon
Crawford made a great pickup on Jesus
Guzman’s grounder for the second out.
Luke Gregerson (1-2) gave up Gregor
Blanco’s leadoff bloop single to shallow left
to start the rally, then pinch-hitter Andres
Torres reached on a fielder’s choice and stole
second before coming home on Pagan’s hit. It
was his first game-winning hit since last July
1 against the Reds.
Madison Bumgarner struck out a season
high 10 and Hunter Pence hit an RBI double
for the Giants. Bumgarner struck out 10 or
more batters for the ninth time in his career.
Chase Headley hit a tying, two-out homer in
the sixth just over leaping left fielder Blanco.
The tying run kept Bumgarner from becoming
the first Giants pitcher to win his first four
starts since Tim Lincecum in 2010.

HAIRCUT (reg.$14)

MIAMI — A year ago, the Miami Heat were
chasing something.
This time around, everyone is chasing them.
And in simplest terms, that’s the taproot of the
philosophy Heat coach Erik Spoelstra began try-
ing to instill in his team way back in September,
even before the first practice of training camp.
Only four franchises since 1969 — only five in
league history, period — have won back-to-back
NBA championships, proof that successfully
defending a title is much tougher than winning
one in the first place.
Such is the challenge the Heat will face start-
ing Sunday, when they play host to the
Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of an Eastern
Conference first-round series.
“It’s a small group to win back to back
because you have to have that same resilience,”
Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. “We had
resilience last year in that no matter what hap-
pened, we were going to get through it. Some
way, somehow, we were
going to win that champi-
onship. Do we have that
same resilience again?
That’s the unknown.”
Finding that proverbial
chip for their shoulders
might be tougher than any-
thing else the Heat have
faced this season.
They got their rings and
then went out and posted the best record in the
league, 66-16. They won 27 straight games
along the way, won 40 times by double figures,
then finished the regular season with an eight-
game winning streak — the longest current run
in the NBA — despite being without Wade,
LeBron James and Chris Bosh for many of those
James missed time with a right hamstring
strain, which he said provided him with a break
that he didn’t even know he needed. He even
likened a few days without basketball to a few
days without fiancee Savannah Brinson.
“When you’re around it every day, every sin-
gle day for the last 2 1/2 years, you need some-
thing to kind of make you miss it, love it again,”
James said. “It’s like being around your wife
every day. You go on a road trip for a few days
and you love her again and miss her so much
when you see her. I’m excited. This postseason,
I’m excited. I got an opportunity to be away
from the game, not play it as much as I’m accus-
tomed to going down the stretch. I guess basket-
ball is like Savannah in that case.”
James spent nine years chasing ring No. 1, a
quest that could be best described as all-con-
suming. Now that he has a title, he sees no rea-
son to change his playoff approach.
“I’m going in with the same mindset as I had
last year, trying to win it for the first time,” James
said. “At this point everyone’s record is thrown
out the window. We’re all 0-0, all 16 teams, both
conferences. So you know, we look forward to
the challenge, man. It’s going to be fun.”
Fun — not exactly a word that the Heat said
often at this time a year ago. Indiana had them
on the ropes in the second round of the playoffs,
they needed to win two elimination games to get
past Boston and dropped Game 1 of the NBA
Finals against Oklahoma City before winning
the next four games and the title.
Oddsmakers list the Heat as huge favorites in
these playoffs. Phil Jackson, he of the 11 cham-
pionship rings as a coach, tweeted on Friday that
he’s “waiting to see who can challenge the
Heat,” and former NBA coach Flip Saunders
said earlier this week that he doesn’t “see any-
one challenging them.”
Spoelstra is urging his team to ignore all the
talk of an assumed June coronation. That’s why
he began planting those seeds, urging the Heat to
look ahead and not back at last year’s title,
before this season even started.
“We wanted to make sure that we had a
growth mindset, that we’re trying to get better
and not just rest on last year’s success —
because that’s what it is, ultimately. It’s last
year,” Spoelstra said. “And it never is the same.
If you stay the same and everybody else
improves, it won’t be enough. And that’s a dan-
ger sometimes with success, how you manage
Heat looking ahead, not back at 2012

The Maloof family is asking NBA owners to approve the sale
of the Kings to a Seattle group, saying there is “significant dis-
tance between us and the Sacramento group.”
In a letter sent to the NBA’s relocation and finance committee,
and obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, the Maloof
family said the Sacramento group originally matched the $525
million valuation for the franchise negotiated by Chris Hansen,
who is heading the Seattle group. Hansen then increased the val-
uation offer to $550 million last week.
The Maloofs said the Sacramento group has asked not to enter
into a binding agreement until the Seattle deal is terminated. The
Maloofs said that would be a breach of contract and cost them
the “leverage to aggressively renegotiate terms in the event the
existing agreement is terminated.”
The Maloofs said, under terms of the Hansen deal, they were
allowed to enter into binding “back-up” offers until owners
approve the agreement, according to the letter. The family said it
would breach its contract with Hansen if it terminated the deal
but that the Sacramento group continues to insist it do so.
“Based on these factors ... we and our advisors see no reason
to continue any dialogue with the Sacramento group or to give
any further consideration to negotiating back-up offers based on
its latest non-binding proposal,” the letter said.
Maloof family spokesman Eric Rose declined to comment on
the letter. Ben Sosenko, a spokesman for Sacramento Mayor
Kevin Johnson, also had no comment.
NBA Commissioner David Stern said earlier this week that
the joint committee assigned to issue a recommendation on the
issue has not made a decision and no vote is expected until at
least May. Stern was scheduled to address reporters Friday fol-
lowing the NBA Board of Governors’ annual meeting in New
The Maloofs reached an agreement in January to sell a 65 per-
cent controlling interest in the Kings to Hansen’s group at a total
franchise valuation of $525 million, an NBA record. With pres-
sure mounting from Sacramento’s counteroffer to keep the team,
Hansen announced last week he would “voluntarily” raise the
valuation to $550 million.
Stern has said expansion is not an option right now. The Board
of Governors, consisting of all 30 NBA owners, was briefed on
the matter during meetings Thursday and Friday in New York.

Sports brief
beginning his first full professional season at
Low-A Augusta. Over his first three starts,
Stratton has been sensational, posting a 2-0
record with a 1.08 ERA, including 6 2/3
innings of four-hit ball Thursday to help
Augusta to its 10th win. At 10-4, the
GreenJackets currently own the best record in
the South Atlantic League.
Stratton may have been a candidate to start
the year in High-A San Jose, but he missed a
significant amount of time due to an injury
that ended his 2012 season. After signing with
the Giants in mid-June, Stratton posted a solid
pro debut at short-season Salem-Keizer. But
his season was cut short when he suffered a
concussion after being struck in the head with
a line drive during batting practice.
“He was working behind the center-field
screen and he had stepped out to receive a ball
at the same time that someone hit a line drive,”
Giants vice president and assistant general
manager Bobby Evans said. “So his back was
turned to home plate … and it hit him right in
the head.”
Rehabbing from the injury continued into
the spring as Stratton got a late start in the pre-
season. After taking some months to resume
baseball activities, the Giants decided to err
on the side of caution in promoting him.
“I think it became more of a conservative
approach with him, having missed the time he
did with the injury,” Evans said. “So I would-
n’t put it past him to pitch his way out of
[Low-A Augusta], but I think it was more
strategic to at least start there.”
There’s nothing like a competitive fire to
help a young player return to the field. And
Stratton has quickly garnered a reputation as
consistently exhibiting such fire.
“When he’s on the mound he wants to real-
ly compete,” Kline said. “He has a little swag-
ger about himself when he’s out there. But he
has a good feel for everything that’s going on
around him. Especially with that concussion
problem he had last year. Once he gets over
that, then he can just become a really good
pitcher. He’s got the weapons.”
He is also completely recovered from the
concussion that cost him his offseason.
“No effects at all,” Kline said. “We make
sure to put a couple players around him so if
line drives are hit they can catch it for him.”
If Stratton does eventually receive a promo-
tion to San Jose, it could give the High-A

ST. PETERSBURG — The Tampa Bay
Rays are finally showing signs of heating up
Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer and Ben
Zobrist had a pair of RBI singles to pace a 10-
hit attack that carried the struggling team to
an 8-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on
Friday night.
A night after slugging four solo home runs
in a 10-inning loss that concluded a 2-7 road
trip, the Rays matched a season-high for runs,
with much of the production coming from
unlikely sources.
“It’s still not there. We still need to improve
in certain areas, but it’s wins like this that can
get you going in the right direction,” manager
Joe Maddon said after his team won for just
just the third time in 11 games. “It’s all about
Jose Lobaton also drove in two runs with a
bases-loaded single to back the pitching of
Alex Cobb (2-1), who allowed three runs and
10 hits over 7 1-3 innings.
Brandon Moss and Jed Lowrie, who went 4
for 4, had run-scoring singles off Cobb in the
first for the A’s. Starting pitcher Brett
Anderson (1-3) left with an ankle injury after
Tampa Bay scored four times in the bottom
half of the inning.
“It’s pretty sore, a little swollen. It’s kind of
early to tell the severity of it,” said Anderson,
who was hurt on his next-to-next pitch. “It’s
kind of depressing. I just landed and felt not
great. ... I don’t know if my heel hit too hard
and kind of jarred something there or what.
Just landed a little wrong.”
Oakland’s Coco Crisp extended his hitting
streak to 12 games with a first-inning double
and added a solo homer off Cobb in the sev-
The A’s loaded the bases with no outs in the
ninth before Fernando Rodney — in a non-
save situation — struck out John Jaso and got
Seth Smith to ground into a game-ending dou-
ble play.

Saul Alvarez has burned to fight Austin Trout
ever since he sat ringside two years ago while
Trout beat up his older brother and took his
championship belt.
That’s why Canelo cast aside caution and put
himself in the most daunting fight of his young
boxing career.
Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KOs) will face Trout
(26-0, 14 KOs) in a 154-pound title unification
bout in San Antonio on Saturday night, hoping
to prove he’s capable of beating the junior mid-
dleweight division’s best fighters.
“It was brought up that there are other fights,
and let’s take other avenues,” Alvarez said.
“But I wanted this fight, and that’s why we’re
The 22-year-old Alvarez has been brought
along quickly yet safely by his management
and promoter Golden Boy, claiming the WBC
154-pound title with little resistance. Canelo is
wildly popular in his native Mexico, but he had
never accepted a fight against a seasoned,
savvy title contender.
Trout is all of those things and more — an
unbeaten champion with ample skill, superior
experience and a perfect record. With little
name recognition or ticket-selling ability to go
with all of those attributes, Trout is a nightmare
opponent for a fighter of
Alvarez’s reputation and
earning power.
But Alvarez says he
couldn’t shake the memory
of his brother, Rigoberto,
losing his WBA title to
Trout in February 2011 in
Guadalajara. When Trout
then jumped to greater
prominence last year with
a stunning decision victory
over Miguel Cotto, Canelo had even more rea-
son to attempt to avenge his brother’s defeat.
Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo’s promoter, grit-
ted his teeth and made the matchup.
“This is a test that he wanted, and we’re
obviously hoping for the best,” De La Hoya
said. “If you compare Saul’s career to anybody
else’s, anybody else who is elite, they would
never take this chance, or this type of fight
ever — including myself, including a Floyd
Mayweather, including anybody.”
A crowd of more than 35,000 fans will
pack the Alamodome to cheer for Alvarez,
who nearly matches Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
for the affection of Mexico’s huge boxing
fan base. While Alvarez’s power and athleti-
cism are imposing, he’s still a young boxer
mastering movement, pace and the intrica-
cies of the fight game — and Trout believes
he can capitalize.
“This is a fight that
should happen — two
undefeated champions in
their prime who put it all
on the line,” Trout said.
“I’m praying that after this
win, it’ll put me in a posi-
tion to be your superstar
like we want to be. But
first we have to get
through this beast called Canelo.”
In December, Trout showed he was much
more than a talented regional fighter from Las
Cruces, N.M., when he traveled to New York
and dominated Cotto, the Puerto Rican star
widely assumed to be Alvarez’s next oppo-
nent. Trout then stepped into the void left by
Cotto’s defeat, seizing a career-changing
chance to fight one of the highest-profile stars
in boxing.
“My strategy is to win by any means possi-
ble,” Trout said. “Whether it’s brawling, box-
ing, moving, sticking there, staying there,
whatever I need to do, we’re going to win. I
want to be a legend in this game. I don’t want
to be a one-hit wonder.”
Alvarez has been criticized for fighting
undersized and overmatched opponents from
Matthew Hatton to Josesito Lopez, but Trout is
a bona fide 154-pounder with the reach and
power to prove it. Canelo likely will attempt to
counter Trout’s stick-and-move style with
power and pressure, hopefully keeping Trout
out of a rhythm.
But much of what Trout did against Cotto
conceivably could work against Alvarez,
another brutish slugger with questionable elu-
siveness. Trout’s counterpunching and quick
hands could prove problematic to Alvarez, par-
ticularly if the younger fighter gets frustrated
and impatient when he can’t immediately hit
“He’s an all-around fighter and he doesn’t
have many faults, but he’s not as strong in some
areas as others, and we’re going to exploit
that,” Trout said. “We’re preparing for the total
And after winning in Mexico, Panama and
Canada over the past four years, Trout said he
isn’t worried about being booed and jeered by
the Texas crowd desperate to see him lose to
Mexico’s favorite son: “The crowd can’t do
anything but cheer for him. They can’t even
give him water. They can’t breathe for him.
They can’t punch for him.”
“To be 2-0 against the Alvarezes will be
great,” Trout added. “But more importantly, to
beat somebody who’s considered the best and
to take that WBC belt, those are my motiva-
tions, and I think those are imperative for my

SAN JOSE — UFC lightweight division
champion Benson Henderson cares less about
where a fight is held and more about the out-
come. Let it take place in the parking lot of a
convenience store and he’ll still just want the
Gilbert Melendez’s mixed martial arts career
was in full bloom while Henderson was still in
school. He’s getting his first UFC opportunity in
a title match against a former admirer.
Melendez, the No. 1 challenger, meets
Henderson with the title on the line Saturday at
HP Pavilion.
Former heavyweight champion Frank Mir and
challenger Daniel Cormier, who fights out of
San Jose, meet in another compelling match on
the main card.
The 29-year-old
Henderson, a two-time
NAIA All-American
wrestler at Dana College in
Nebraska, remembered
watching the 31-year-old
Melendez, who wrestled at
San Francisco State.
“I thought it was cool see-
ing another ex-college
wrestler,” Henderson said.
Henderson (18-2 overall)
is undefeated in the UFC ranks, owning a six-
fight winning streak since moving to the UFC
from the WEC two years ago. It’s the longest cur-
rent streak among lightweights and matches the
third-longest winning streak overall.
He said he doesn’t bother looking for added
motivation. Winning is motivation enough.
“I don’t like losing, period,” he said. “A fight is
a fight and a title is a title. If it’s behind a 7-11 I
don’t care, I’m going to beat him up.”
This is Henderson’s third title defense since
taking the belt away from Frankie Edgar in
February 2012. His last defense, a unanimous
decision over Nate Diaz in December, was his
most dominant, with 124 significant strikes and
eight takedowns.
Melendez has won his last seven fights, all with
Strikeforce. His last loss was to Josh Thomson —
who meets Diaz in the main card fight — in June
Melendez, who works out of San Francisco, is
comfortable in San Jose, where he is making his
ninth professional appearance.
“I know it’s go time,” said Melendez, the
Strikeforce lightweight champion. “I’m prepared.
It has been a roller coaster ride and nowI’m here
for a title shot, so it’s been a good journey.”
Melendez said he considers Henderson a new
breed of fighter who can put it all together.
“He’s agile, athletic and tactical,” Melendez
said. “But it isn’t about Benson; it’s about beating
the champion. I still feel that I am on top of my
game. I still feel youthful.”
Cormier and Mir were scheduled to fight last
November but an injury forced Mir to postpone.
Mir, ranked sixth, has the most wins (14) in the
heavyweight division, although his last three loss-
es were all title shots.
He changed his training habits, spending nine
weeks in New Mexico instead of staying in his
hometown of Las Vegas to build stamina.
“The isolation led to focus and drive,” Mir said.
“In the past my conditioning has been suspect. I’ve
never trained like I should have and won a lot of
fights I should not have won.”

Your best friend is gone.
What do you do?
Aragon’s Chanel Joyce is a warrior
— a Don by name, yes, but a warrior at
heart. On Wednesday, surrounded by
60 of her closest supporters, the senior
signed on the dotted line, accepting a
volleyball scholarship to play for the
Golden Eagles at the University of
Southern Mississippi.
Stories of athletes signing on the dot-
ted line to play at the next level aren’t
unique. But Joyce certainly is. And
everyone in Aragon’s old gymnasium
who came out to celebrate her personal
milestone knows that.
There was cake, lots of black and
gold, laughter, pictures and a very
important speech when Joyce told
those who knew her closest that the
blood, sweats and tears from the last
three years of her life were dedicated to
God and most importantly, her mother.
Yes, the one she found unconscious
that one November morning. The one
that died of cancer Dec. 20, 2009. The
same one she never really got a chance
to say goodbye.
Watched her mom die
The joy in the gymnasium was a far
cry from the sadness in the hospital
room where she lied next to her coma-
tose mother, Brandy, who died with her
daughter lying next to her just three
short years before — when the thought
of even picking up a volleyball was asi-
“It was so surreal,” Joyce said, recall-
ing her mother’s death. “It’s like I did-
n’t think it could happen. Like, my best
friend, my mom just passed away.”
Joyce said her mother had been sick
for a couple of years before doctors dis-
covered several tumors in her brain —
by that time, her mom had more sick
days than healthy ones. And Joyce said
her disbelief was rooted in the hope and
positive prognosis her mother’s doctors
gave her and her family.
Now motherless, Joyce became a
recluse, bitter at the entire world. Her
first year at Aragon came and went with
the teen struggling to make sense of
life’s most horrific tragedy.
The one thing that kept her going was
the drive to fulfill one of her mother’s
last wishes: Brandy wanted Chanel to
play volleyball. So in the fall of 2011,
Joyce put on the black and red for the
Dons, and once again, her entire life
“I started to play volleyball to get my
anger out,” Joyce said. “That’s what she
(her mother) wanted me to play. I did-
n’t even want to play volleyball. My
mom wanted me to play.”
A natural
Once Joyce stepped on the volleyball
court, there was no denying her unbe-
lievable athleticism. At 5-9, the sopho-
more had the leaping ability to hit over
much higher blocks. And her ability to
defend was uncanny for a girl her size.
“She’s definitely the most athletic kid
to come out of this area in some time,”
said Kelsey Stiles, Aragon’s assistant
and Joyce’s club head coach.
Ah yes, coach Stiles. It’s about here
that we reach a very important part of
Joyce’s triumphant story. While she
decided to join the volleyball team,
there was still something distant about
Joyce as the season unfolded. And it
wasn’t until a random conversation that
occurred during the Dons’ first game of
the season that Joyce took a step toward
Stiles recalls: “One day, she just kind
of looks at me. We were on the bench
… and she’s sitting next to me, and she
says, ‘Do you want hear something
really sad?’ And this is the first time
she’d actually talked to me, as opposed
to me coaching her, and I said, ‘Sure,
we’re in the middle of a game, but
Joyce went on to tell Stiles of a pend-
ing trip to Chico to mourn the death of
her grandfather.
“She said, ‘Can you imagine losing
your daughter and your husband in the
same year?’”
Joyce was talking about her grand-
mother, who lost both within the same
The randomness of the conversation
aside, the choice to confide in Stiles
was step one for Joyce’s journey. She
said she didn’t know exactly what led
her to do so, but sometimes there are
higher powers involved that can’t be
Shoulder on which to lean
The two grew close and became sis-
ter-like. Stiles took Joyce under her
wing and brought her to play for the
650 Xtreme club team where she honed
Joyce raw athletic ability.
But little did Stiles know just how
much of an influence Joyce would
become on her life.
Less than a year after that conversa-
tion on the Aragon bench, Stiles’ father
was diagnosed with cancer. Three
months after that, he too died. And one
of Stiles’ pillars of hope was the young
girl from San Mateo who knew exactly
what Stiles, at 24 years old, was going
“I felt like she was a role model,”
Joyce said, “someone I could look up
to. When my mom died, she was there
for me. So I felt that when her dad
passed away, I needed to be there for
her. I needed to be mature, stand up and
I told Kelsey, ‘I’m here for you.’”
And so, in helping Stiles and her
family navigate through the hardship of
loss, Joyce turned the corner in her own
recovery. Her extended family grew
through Stiles and her church. Joyce
found a restored faith in God. And
through hours in the gym, Joyce
became one of the Peninsula Athletic
League’s most complete player — gar-
nering the attention of a handful of vol-
leyball programs.
Growing up fast
“When my mom died, it just made
me mature,” Joyce said. “It showed me
life is a whole different picture.
Watching my mom, she was a single
parent, so she had to mature fast. So
that showed me that the hard times,
they help you evolve as a person. I had
to do it to help myself. My mom would
want me to do that.”
And her mom stressed the impor-
tance of education — by signing on to
play at Southern Miss, Joyce fulfills
another one of her mom’s wishes.
“I think that kid she is so resilient, it
literally motivates me every day,” Stiles
said, additionally stressing the impor-
tance of Joyce’s guardian, Barbara
Orge. “The things she’s been able to
overcome, I mean, she’s a handful, I’ll
tell you that. But, to go through every-
thing she’s been through — since 14,
she’s been struggling, and to see where
she is now and if she can handle that,
she can overcome that, ‘Why can’t I do
this, this and this?’”
“Anything is possible,” Joyce said. “I
know that now. My mother passed
away when I was 14 and I refuse to go
anywhere but up.”
And a steady climb through the
NCAA’s Division I isn’t hard to imag-
ine for someone with a warrior spirit
like Joyce’s.

Reusable future
Take time Sunday to invest in a reusable
shopping bag or two. On Monday, a single-
use bag ban goes into effect in many San
Mateo County cities — except for San
Mateo and Redwood City, where the rule
change starts later this year. Consider using
this day as a kickoff to your new habit of
bringing a bag with you to stores.
If you forget to buy a bag, San Mateo res-
idents can pick up a “BYOB (Bring Your
Own Bag) San Mateo” bay on Earth Day at
various city facilities. For locations, visit
Want to learn more about the bag ban? The
San Mateo Library is hosting a screening of
“Bag it. Is Your Life Too Plastic?” from
12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. Monday.
The award-winning documentary explores
society’s reliance on plastic bags and reveals
the many environmental and health hazards
associated with plastic. Spend your lunch
hour this Earth Day with the city of San
Mateo to learn more about the importance of
reducing reliance on disposable bags.
A techie-shade of green
Making changes to the environment often
starts with your day-to-day habits. Belmont-
based BlogHer turned to its online commu-
nity for ideas of how to use technology to be
greener in daily life. BlogHer Co-Founder
Elisa Camahort Page said one trend for
homeowners is a product called the Nest —
a smart temperature control device that
learns a family’s habits, programs itself and
can be controlled from a smartphone. The
device uses gamification — like giving little
leaf badges — to encourage environmental-
ly-sound decisions. Camahort Page said that
she even saw got a discount on her utility
bill for the smart use of temperature control.
Using a smartphone also opens up people
to instant information via apps. The Transit
App, for example, uses real-time maps to
offer the best public transit path to wherever
someone is going. Those who are interested
in certain topics — like animal rights, for
example — could use the GoodGuide. Users
can choose issues important for them, then
can scan barcodes of products to see how it
ranks compared to their personal, important
issues, said Camahort Page.
A big way to be green, which technology
supports, is telecommuting, said Camahort
Page. Given the online community of
BlogHer, many of its users take advantage of
this. The Telework Research Network tracks
the environmental impacts of people not
jumping in the car to make that daily com-
Lastly, those interested in actually work-
ing with their green thumbs can get tips from
Sunset Magazine’s app, which offers every-
thing from tips in gardening to recipes for
how to use your home-grown produce. And,
those wanting to light their garden, should
consider getting solar-powered lights, which
Camahort Page was surprised to learn are
quite affordable.

Pakistan’s Musharraf
vows to fight after arrest
ISLAMABAD — Former Pakistani military
ruler Pervez Musharraf vowed on Friday to
fight what he called politi-
cally motivated allegations
against him, following his
arrest in a case involving
his decision to fire senior
judges while in power.
Musharraf was detained
after he made a dramatic
escape from court in a
speeding vehicle on
Thursday and holed up in
his heavily guarded house
on the outskirts of Islamabad. He is now being
held at police headquarters in the capital and is
expected to appear before an anti-terrorism
court. Musharraf seized control of Pakistan in a
coup in 1999 when he was army chief and
spent nearly a decade in power before being
forced to step down in 2008.
He returned to Pakistan last month after four
years in self-imposed exile to make a political
comeback despite Taliban death threats and a
raft of legal challenges.
Pro- and anti-Islamist
protesters clash in Egypt
CAIRO — Supporters and opponents of
Egypt’s Islamist president battled in the streets
near Tahrir Square on Friday as an Islamist
rally demanding a purge of the judiciary
devolved into violence.
The rally centered on a contentious aspect of
the country’s deep political polarization — the
courts. Islamist backers of President
Mohammed Morsi say the judiciary is infused
with former regime loyalists who are blocking
his policies, while opponents fear Islamists
want to take over the courts and get rid of sec-
ular-minded judges to consolidate the Muslim
Brotherhood’s power.
But beyond the specific issues, the scenes of
youths from both sides waving homemade pis-
tols and beating each other with sticks illustrat-
ed how entrenched violence has become in
Egypt’s political crisis.

Getting Tumblr
famous, sort of
By Chloee Weiner
f you’re a teenager who spends
a decent amount of time online,
chances are you’ve heard of or
have been on the website Tumblr —
a platform that allows users to post
text, images,
videos and audio
to a personal
While Tumblr
can be used to
follow celebri-
ties or current
events (for
President Barack
Obama started a Tumblr during his
campaign for the 2012 election),
much of the site is dominated by
young adults sharing pictures of
fashionable starlets, mouth-watering
food or inspirational — and often
corny — quotes. Many Tumblr
blogs, or Tumblogs, have themes
such as “hipster” or “fashion” and
consist of corresponding photos. If a
Tumblr user sees a photo they like,
they can “follow” the blog,
“favorite” the post or “reblog” the
photo, which places that photo on
their own blog. Some users make
their blogs more personal, adding
their life stories or anecdotes to
pages often called the “about me”
Perhaps one of the most appealing
aspects of Tumblr is its potential for
its users to gain Internet fame.
Popular Tumblr users — especially
those who include photos of them-
selves — often become mini-celebri-
ties with hundreds of thousands of
online followers. Relationships
between bloggers and followers are
made more personal with Tumblr’s
“ask” option, which allows users to
anonymously (or non-anonymously)
send a question or comment that
bloggers can choose to post on their
pages with a response. Tumblr gives
users a chance to gain this anony-
mous Internet fame with little effort
on the part of the blogger, as photos,
videos, quotes or music taken from
any website are fair game to post on
one’s Tumblog. For this reason,
Tumblr’s appeal is massive and, a
few months ago, my friend and I
decided to become a part of it.

By David Rooney
LOS ANGELES — As both an actor and a rap-
per, Gina Rodriguez gives an empowered per-
formance in “Filly Brown,” playing a young Los
Angeles woman angling for hip-hop stardom as
a means to help spring her mother from prison.
But the heavy-handed, untidy story sense of co-
directors Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos
means not everything that surrounds the central
figure has the same grit and authenticity.

Jenni Rivera in new movie
By Marcela Isaza
LOS ANGELES — Jenni Rivera had other
chances to act in films, but she chose to make
her movie debut in “Filly Brown” simply
because her close friend, Edward James Olmos,
made the request. In fact, Rivera didn’t even
read the script when she agreed to portray a
drug-addicted prisoner in the movie.

“I said, ‘I need a favor from you, a big
one,”’ Olmos recalled. “She said, ‘What is
it?’ I said, ‘I need you to work with me on a
film. I’ll send you the script. Let me know if
you like the story.’ And she goes, ‘Eddie, I’m
dumbstruck with the understanding that you
are asking me to do you a favor.”’
Rivera, a U.S.-born singer who became a
huge star among Latin audiences, was killed
in a plane crash last Dec. 9 in northern
Mexico. “Filly Brown,” which has its limited
release on Friday, was her first and only film.
It also stars Gina Rodriguez and Chrissie Fit
as her daughters, and Lou Diamond Phillips
as her husband. It was directed by Olmos’
son, Michael D. Olmos, and Youssef Delara.
Rodriguez warmly remembers working
with Rivera — how apologetic she was when
they would rehearse scenes where her char-
acter was mean-spirited.
“That was funny, like all the preparation
we did for us to get on that set and for her to
really, you know be a mother to me, but a
mother that she is not used to being. So she
really transformed that woman,” said
Rodriguez. “I am so proud of her perform-
ance. I am so blessed I got to work with that
woman. I miss her every day. ... But now it’s
about celebrating that woman because that
woman is and always will be fierce.”
Both Olmos and Phillips were impressed
by Rivera’s acting.
“You may know Lou (Diamond Phillips) or
you may know me and you are sitting there
but you don’t know anybody else,” explained
Olmos. “You are going to get your mind
blown because they are brilliant performanc-
es. But then you find out this was the first
time she ever touched the art form, and this
is what she gave us. You could only imagine
where she could have gone.”
Phillips admitted he knew nothing about
Rivera before they worked together on “Filly
Brown,” but was greatly impressed by her
“This isn’t a glamorous role. This is a
down and dirty, gritty performance,” Phillips
said. “She didn’t hesitate. She came in and
grabbed it with both hands and just wrestled
this beautiful performance out of herself and
that was impressive.”
Rivera and six others died in the plane
crash, which remains under investigation.
Rivera, a mother of five children and grand-
mother of two, was 43. Rivera sold more
than 15 million copies of her 12 major-label
albums. Her soulful singing style and hon-
esty about her tumultuous personal life won
her fans on both sides of the border.
Phillips first came to prominence playing
Richie Valens in the 1987 biopic “La
Bamba,” which ends with Valens’ death in a
plane crash. For Phillips, who got the news
of Rivera’s death from Olmos, finding out
felt like something from “The Twilight

with Latino characters is not the same as
bringing something fresh to the screen. But
the intensity of Rodriguez’s work, the muscu-
lar energy and slick style of the film and the
pumping soundtrack should give it some com-
mercial traction.
Raised by her construction foreman father
Jose (Lou Diamond Phillips) ever since her
junkie mother Maria (the late Jenni Rivera)
was incarcerated on drug charges, Majo
(Rodriquez) has had to grow up fast. That
includes keeping her pretty 17-year-old sister
Lupe (Chrissie Fit) in line. Jose wants the girls
to stay away from their mother’s toxic influ-
ence, but Majo visits her in secret.
Informed by her mother of a possible break
in her case, Majo seeks help from Maria’s
lawyer (Edward James Olmos). But Maria
cares less about legal assistance than about
raising $3,000 to pay a shady-sounding con-
tact who “gets things done.” Why Majo never
questions this ambiguous strategy — even as
she’s forking over the hard-won dough to a
patently sleazy operator — is one of many
ways in which Delara’s screenplay undercuts
the character’s intelligence.
An amateur rapper, Majo gets an open-mic
spot on local hip-hop radio. Adopting the
name Filly Brown, she channels fierce convic-
tion into kick-ass verses her mother claims to
have written before things turned sour for her.
She also sucker-punches cocky guest MC
Wyatt (Joseph Julian Sora). The performance
and her feisty attitude earn her the profession-
al and romantic attention of resident spinner
DJ Santa (Braxton Millz) and the managerial
interest of self-inflated music promoter
Rayborn Ortiz (Chingo Bling).
Again during her exploratory inroads into
the music business, Delara’s script denies
Majo the smarts she deserves, making her
reckless and naive. Abandoning the militant
Latino rap she and Santa have been experi-
menting with, she allows Rayborn to sex up
her look and add a generic hoochie chorus.
That puts her on the radar of producer Big Cee
(Noel Gugliemi), whose sneering unscrupu-
lousness borders on caricature. It also puts her
in the same circle as Wyatt, who takes an
instant liking to Lupe.
It’s problematic when an audience knows
way before the supposedly savvy main char-
acter that she’s being taken advantage of by
her mother as well as compromised as an
artist. But despite the inconsistencies of plot
and character, and the unevenness of much of
the acting, Rodriguez brings such fire to the
part that we keep rooting for Majo even as she
makes stupid decisions that bring dire conse-
Laconic but warm, Phillips is saddled with
a half-baked attempt to add narrative texture
when the patronizing real estate agent
employing him suggests he fire his heavily
tattooed buddies and dress to impress her
potential buyers. But while this is a useless
digression, Jose’s refusal to erase his identity
ultimately spurs him to be more open with his
daughters about the past. That strengthening
of the family unit gives the film some wel-
come emotional kick in the concluding
“Filly Brown,” a Pantelion Films/Lionsgate
release, is rated R for language, some drug use
and violence. Running time: 100 minutes.

both agreed that we needed an outlet and that
we couldn’t be the only ones.
We decided to start a blog, originally with
the intention of posting application do’s and
don’t’s. Instead, we gave in to the Tumblr trend
of reaction GIFs, moving images that convey a
response to any given situation. Modeled after
other popular Tumblr blogs that feature reac-
tion GIFs, we posted GIFs to express our exas-
peration with the Common Application’s per-
sonal essay, our reactions to rejection letters
and our attitude toward any piece of the
process. With a few quick posts and the cre-
ation of our blog’s name, collegerage, our
Tumblr was born.
Although we gained followers slowly at first,
we were shocked that anyone had found our
blog and were so pleased that they actually
found our posts funny or relatable. Soon we
began to receive questions in our inbox from
followers asking for advice or just to share an
experience similar to our own. After about a
month of blogging, a school-specific post that
had mentioned one of Tufts University’s appli-
cation questions was noticed by a Tufts admis-
sions officer. He contacted us, telling us he was
a fan and acknowledged the truth in our humor.
He even posted a link to our blog on his
Twitter account, immediately giving us a bump
in followers. Followers began to message us to
let us know that our blog had been mentioned
at a Tufts open house at their campus in
Medford, Mass.
What had started off as a vehicle to voice
our opinions through (sometimes lame) jokes
had become a place for others to share ridicu-
lous admissions experiences, ask for advice
and just share a laugh. The college application
process for this year is over and so is the need
to vent about it, but our brief flirtation with
blogging gave us a taste of the allure of the
anonymous community that is Tumblr.

Weekend • April 20-21, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Susan Cohn
When developers working on plans for The
Alexander, a new boutique hotel in downtown
Indianapolis, wanted someone to assemble an
art collection for the building’s public spaces,
their search led them to Lisa D. Freiman, sen-
ior curator and chair of the Indianapolis
Museum of Art’s department of contemporary
art. Freiman, with fellow curator Veronica
Roberts, was tasked with finding pieces that
would reflect The Alexander’s location at the
center of Indianapolis’ cultural world and
would at the same time elevate the quality of
contemporary art in downtown Indianapolis.
The siting of the art was a primary consid-
eration. Freiman said: “We quickly began to
review the construction documents for the
hotel and worked with the architecture and
design team to understand what was planned
for various spaces and where might be the
best opportunities for displaying art through-
out the public areas.”
The theme of local history was woven into
the project from the very beginning. The
Alexander itself was named in honor of
Alexander Ralston, the engineer and architect
who spearheaded the Indianapolis’ city plan in
1820. Plat 99, the hotel’s mid-20th Century
flavored lounge, designed by Cuban
Installation Artist Jorge Pardo, takes its name
from the parcel of land on which the property
is built. Freiman said, “We asked artists to
consider thinking about ways of incorporating
a sense of place in the concepts for their
works, specifically thinking about how their
works might relate to the city of Indianapolis,
the state of Indiana, or the Midwest in gener-
Freiman ultimately selected 60 works from
26 artists for the hotel’s lobbies, reception
areas, public bathrooms, hallways and dining
areas. Fourteen of the pieces were commis-
sioned especially for The Alexander. The
wide-ranging works are prominently dis-
played where they can engage guests and vis-
itors with their witty references to
Indianapolis personalities and places.
No work in The Alexander acknowledges
its location with more certainty than sculptor
Mark Fox’s reflective floor to ceiling laser cut
stainless steel stream of consciousness rumi-
nation entitled “39 point 76181 degrees North
86 point 154688 degrees West” that greets
guests as they exit the elevator into the hotel’s
second floor lobby. The title is, in fact, the
longitude and latitude of The Alexander or, as
Fox’s flowing text bluntly states, “This is
where you are right now.” Fox’s meandering
metallic prose riffs on The Alexander’s name-
sake architect and his gravesite (“He rests on
a beautiful little plot of earth that’s about
seven and a half miles due north from where
you are now standing”) and on various other
local celebrities, then concludes with the stern
directive: “Now go to your room!” Fox said:
“The sculpture emerged from my desire to sit-
uate the viewer’s body in space, place and
time, while also calling attention to the natu-
ral and unnatural phenomenon that surround
us but often go unnoticed.”
Indiana’s distinctive terrain inspired Adam
Cvijanovic’s sweeping work “10,000 Feet,” a
34-foot long and 12-foot high trompe l’oeil
aerial view of a rural landscape. The acrylic
paint on Tyvek application makes the wall
look as if it has been punched through, with
sheetrock and wooden lath exposed at the
edges, in order to reveal an expansive
Midwestern farmscape that appears to stretch
out for miles on the other side.
Artist Sonya Clark’s over-sized portrait of
Madam C. J. Walker anchors the main area of
the second floor lobby. Walker, regarded as
the first American female self-made million-
aire, made her fortune by developing and mar-
keting beauty and hair products for women.
Her headquarters and factory were in
Indianapolis. Walker’s image is made of 3,840
black plastic combs that reference Walker’s
proud claim, “I am a woman from the cotton
fields of the South. I was promoted to the
washtub. I was promoted to the kitchen. I pro-
moted myself to the business of hair ... on my
own grounds.”

‘Burger Land’ show host
dishes on best U.S.burgers
By Alicia Rancilio
NEW YORK — If you love a good burger, you might
think George Motz has the best job ever. He crisscrosses the
country as the host of Travel Channel’s new series “Burger
Land,” looking for the best burgers in America.
He consumed 70 burgers in the three months it took to
shoot the first season, exercising regularly to accommodate
his indulgence. Now he’s temporarily staying away from
burgers to give his system a break. Still, he said in a recent
interview, “I crave a burger every single day.”
One thing he stressed, however, is that all burgers are not
created equal.
“One of the greatest dividing lines is the frozen patty ver-
sus the fresh meat burger,” said Motz. “It is very difficult for
restaurants to keep fresh meat in the house, so the restau-
rants that are making hamburgers with fresh ground beef,
it’s not easy and they’re doing the right thing.”
He also says there’s a lot of regional variety in burgers.
Here are a few of his favorites from different parts of the
“They have these things called the Slugburger or a dough-
burger. There’s actually some kind of breading mixed into
the meat, which is a throwback to the Depression and meat-
rationing during World War II, where people would have to
put something into the meat to extend it, whether it was
onions or day-old bread, to make the meat go further, and
those burgers are still available in parts of the South, espe-
cially northern Mississippi.”
“You have the green chile cheeseburger, (it) is a cheese-
burger with green chile on top. They’re hot and they’re so
good. You can only find them in West Texas, south Colorado
and the entire state of New Mexico. It’s the state burger.”
“There’s a phenomenon known as the Steam
Cheeseburger. It’s a chunk of ground beef put into a steam-
ing cabinet and the cheese is steamed right next to it and
poured on like a molten goo. It’s very unique only to
“If you’re in Los Angeles there’s Irv’s Burgers. If you’re
new to Northern California, there’s a place called Val’s
Burgers in Hayward. It’s unbelievable.”
“Chicago is a great burger town. People love to eat in
Chicago and they’re not shy about expressing their love for
food. They’ve got the famous Billy Goat. You’ve got to get
the triple with cheese. Edzo’s is a new place doing an old-
school burger in Evanston and Lincoln Park, Ill. There’s the
famous Kuma’s Corner in Chicago.”
“There is a very famous place called the Tune Inn. The
hamburger is unique because it’s a classic cheeseburger. No
crazy toppings. You’re blocks from the Capitol building.
There’s also Ben’s Chili Bowl. They’re very famous for their
half-smoked with chili on top but the real reason to go there
for me is to get the chili cheeseburger.”
guidelines that are followed for all of our
programs including Safe Harbor Shelter.
This would include program limitations
dictating length of stay and conditions
for discharge at the shelter,” Lopez said.
Pierre moved into Safe Harbor in
South San Francisco in July 2012. He
claims he was not told, at that time, of
the rules regarding the limitations of the
duration of his stay. In late December,
Pierre was given a weekend and holiday
pass from the shelter staff for Dec. 31
through Jan. 2. During that time, Pierre
suffered a gout flare-up, which kept him
from walking. Pierre claims he kept staff
in the loop of the change in his mobility
during the authorized leave. Pierre wrote
in the lawsuit that he regained mobility
on Jan. 9 and used public transportation
to go to the San Francisco VA Medical
Facility, from which he was released
after midnight Jan. 10. Pierre again used
public transportation to get back to the
shelter, where he arrived at 3:45 a.m.
Pierre was told by staff that he had been
evicted. The eviction included staff call-
ing the South San Francisco police.
Pierre’s larger issue is wanting clear
rules for evicting a person using housing
offered through a nonprofit that gets fed-
eral funding.
“Despite their effective public rela-
tions skills, transitional housing opera-
tors have done nothing more than con-
struct a parasitically brutal system, rem-
iniscent of a Dickens’ novel, or the deep
South before King, with nearly zero
effect in ending homelessness,” Pierre
wrote in the suit.

of possessing a stolen vessel in return for
up to four years and four months to be
served in the county jail. Judge Jonathan
Karesh agreed to consider at a June 7
sentencing hearing to split the ultimate
term between incarceration and out-of-
custody supervision.
The settlement is good, said District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Maffei also felt the offer was a very
fair deal and was ready to take responsi-
bility for his conduct, said defense attor-
ney Jeff Boyarsky.
“He wants to apologize to the commu-
nity for what he did. He knows there are
consequences for his action,” Maffei
Maffei was originally charged with
first-degree burglary, kidnapping, taking
a child from a lawful custodian, child
endangerment and possessing a stolen
motor vehicle.
On Sept. 4, 2012, Maffei allegedly
took his 3-year-old daughter and 2-year-
old son from their mother’s South San
Francisco home and sailed away on a
yacht he’d stolen from an Alameda mari-
na. Authorities located the 41-foot boat,
which had run out of fuel and, after
hours of monitoring, the Coast Guard
escorted the vessel into Santa Cruz
The children were unharmed and
Maffei was taken into custody.
As Maffei took the children, his ex-
girlfriend, who is the children’s mother,
was at the San Mateo County Superior
Court filing a restraining order request
against him.
Maffei said in early court appearances
that he took the children to prevent them
from abuse.
Boyarsky confirmed that as his client’s
motivation but declined details until the
sentencing hearing other than to say
Maffei “realized he overreacted and
went too far in what he did.”
He remains in custody in lieu of
$500,000 bail.

The two men were identified by author-
ities and relatives as ethnic Chechens
from southern Russia who had been in the
U.S. for about a decade and were believed
to be living in Cambridge, Mass. But
investigators gave no details on the
motive for the bombing.
Early Friday morning, 26-year-old
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a fero-
cious gun battle and car chase during
which he and his younger brother hurled
explosives at police from a stolen car,
authorities said. The younger brother
managed to escape.
During the getaway attempt, the broth-
ers killed an MIT policeman and severely
wounded another officer, authorities said.
After a tense, all-day manhunt and
house-to-house search by thousands of
SWAT team officers with rifles and
armored vehicles, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
was cornered in a homeowner’s yard,
where he exchanged gunfire with police
while holed up in a boat, authorities said.
He was taken away on a stretcher and
was hospitalized in serious condition with
unspecified injuries, police said.
Just before 9 p.m., Boston police
announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev was in custody. They later
wrote: “CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over.
The search is done. The terror is over.
And justice has won. Suspect in custody.”
The news was met with jubilation
across the Boston area. A cheer went up
from a crowd of bystanders in Watertown.
“Everyone wants him alive,” said
Kathleen Paolillo, a teacher.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted,
“We got him,” along with a photo of him-
self talking to the police commissioner.
Police said three other people were
taken into custody for questioning at an
off-campus housing complex at the
University of the Massachusetts at
Dartmouth where the younger man may
have lived.
Up until the younger man’s capture, it
was looking like a grim day for police. As
night fell, they announced that they were
scaling back the hunt and lifting the stay-
indoors order across Boston and some of
its suburbs because they had come up
But then a break came in a Watertown
neighborhood when a homeowner saw
blood on his boat, pulled back the tarp
and saw the bloody suspect hiding inside,
police said.
Chechnya has been the scene of two
wars between Russian forces and sepa-
ratists since 1994, in which tens of thou-
sands were killed in heavy Russian
bombing. That spawned an Islamic insur-
gency that has carried out deadly bomb-
ings in Russia and the region, although
not in the West.
The older brother had strong political
views about the United States, said
Albrecht Ammon, 18, a downstairs-apart-
ment neighbor in Cambridge. Ammon
quoted Tsarnaev as saying that the U.S.
uses the Bible as “an excuse for invading
other countries.”
Also, the FBI interviewed the older
brother at the request of a foreign govern-
ment in 2011, and nothing derogatory
was found, according to a federal law
enforcement official who was not author-
ized to discuss the case publicly and
spoke on condition of anonymity.
The official did not identify the foreign
country or say why it made the request.
The FBI was swamped with tips after
the release of the surveillance-camera
photos — 300,000 per minute — but
what role those played in the capture was
unclear. State Police spokesman Dave
Procopio said police realized they were
dealing with the bombing suspects based
on what the two men told a carjacking
victim during their long night of crime.
The search for the younger brother all
but paralyzed the Boston area. Officials
shut down all mass transit, including
Amtrak trains to New York, advised busi-
nesses not to open, and warned close to 1
million people in the entire city and some
of its suburbs to stay inside and unlock
their doors only for uniformed police.
“We believe this man to be a terrorist,”
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis
said. “We believe this to be a man who’s
come here to kill people.”
Around midday, the suspects’ uncle
Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village,
Md., pleaded on television: “Dzhokhar, if
you are alive, turn yourself in and ask for
Authorities said the man dubbed
Suspect No. 1 — the one in sunglasses
and a dark baseball cap in the surveil-
lance-camera pictures — was Tamerlan
Tsarnaev, while Suspect No. 2, the one in
a white baseball cap worn backward, was
his younger brother.
Exactly how the long night of crime
began was unclear. But police said the
brothers carjacked a man in a Mercedes-
Benz in Cambridge, just across the
Charles River from Boston, then released
him unharmed at a gas station.
They also shot to death a
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
police officer, 26-year-old Sean Collier,
while he was responding to a report of a
disturbance, investigators said.

guilty,” said a San Bruno mother who
wished to remain anonymous.
She and her husband worked very hard to
have a baby but, when her baby was born,
she found she was having a hard time
adjusting to full-time motherhood. She was
attending a moms club — which for her was
beneficial in many ways — but she did not
feel comfortable talking about deeper emo-
tional issues in that social setting. She was
considering seeing a therapist, when her
doctor recommended Marlo’s free
Mentoring Mothers group.
“It was like a weight had been lifted off
my shoulders,” she said, as she played with
her smiling 7-month-old on her lap.
“I feel like if you say you have any con-
flicting feelings about motherhood, people
say, ‘oh, you have postpartum [depres-
sion],’” she said. “It’s totally normal to have
conflicting feelings.”
Having a professional run the Mentoring
Mothers group allows for a more in-depth
productive discussion, said the mother. And
Marlo is a mother herself, she added.
As she pushed her son in a stroller, she
described her journey through motherhood
as one with great “highs” and “lows.”
“When it’s good, it’s really, really good,”
she said. “When he laughs.”
She was at a loss for words.
Mentoring Mothers
Marlo, mother of three, began Mentoring
Mothers more than a year ago with a facul-
ty grant from NDNU, where she is a faculty
scholar with the Dorothy Stang Center for
Social Justice and Community Engagement.
Mentoring Mothers assists moms with a
broad range of emotional challenges, from
general stress and anxiety to postpartum
depression. For some mothers, the group
meets all of their needs, and for others, it
can serve as a stepping stone for finding
more support.
The free weekly group session is held at
the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in
Burlingame. Participants range from being
in their third trimester to having toddlers.
Some are new moms and some have older
Marlo explained that a key stress factor
can be a mother’s expectations of herself.
Your childhood and your impressions of
your own mother can weigh heavily, said
“A lot of us want to do better for our kids
than we had,” she said.
Or conversely, some people strive to live
up to their parents.
Many women are surprised that connect-
ing with their baby is not sudden, but rather
a process. Like any personal relationship,
fostering a connection takes time, said
Through Mentoring Mothers, she facili-
tates a process in which mothers can dis-
cover the roots of their feelings and figure
out how to manage them.
Having negative feelings can affect a
child, but a parent who acknowledges where
these feelings are coming from will end up
having a stronger connection, she said.
Wading through advice
Mentoring Mothers also helps moms deal
with the flood of advice they are given on
things like breastfeeding and sleeping.
“When people put out their advice as
gospel, that is what’s stressful,” said Marlo.
“I try to come from a balanced place.”
She tells mothers that there are multiple
ways to do things and encourages them to
think about their own personal values and
“There’s a lot of different good moms out
there,” she said. “I try to tell them to honor
their own experience.”
Filling a void
Marlo lit up as her 2-year-old daughter
Audrey entered her office, giggling. Audrey
occupied herself with a water dispenser in
the hallway, while her mom explained how
she started Mentoring Mothers.
Marlo was first drawn to perinatal emo-
tional concerns during her work with trauma
patients. A wide range of motherhood issues
was repeatedly coming up in her work.
However, her peers were mainly focused on
postpartum depression, she said, as Audrey
proudly presented her with a cup of water,
slightly spilling as she jolted toward her
There was only help for these “in-
between” mothers who could afford it, she
“There really was a void. There’s nothing
like this in the Bay Area,” said Marlo, play-
fully crawling after her daughter as she
rushed out of her office again.
She hopes acknowledging that mother-
hood is challenging and emotionally drain-
ing can lead to improved public support for
“If we make it the woman’s problem, we
don’t get much social policy change,” she
The United States ranks very low on
maternity leave, for example, said Marlo.
“Motherhood can truly be a miraculous
time to see the beauty of life, but it’s sad
that women can be robbed of that,” she said,
as she discovered Audrey’s now large pud-
dle of water in the hallway of her office.
She grabbed a handful of paper towels and
began mopping up the spill.
“It doesn’t come easy,” she said.

create obstacles for yourself, you can be a leader
in an endeavor that is theoretically controlled by
someone else. Don’t be afraid to step up.

you want to go.

Manuel J. Gil
Case Number: 123245
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Manuel J. Gil. A Petition
for Probate has been filed by Marsha Ca-
sillas. in the Superior Court of California,
County of San Mateo. The Petition for
Probate requests that Marsha Casillas
be appointed as personal representative
to administer the estate of the decedent.
The petition requests that the decedent’s
will and codicils, if any, be admitted to
probate. The will and any codicils are
available for examination in the file kept
by the court.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ster the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: May 10, 2013 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28,, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063. If you object to the granting of
the petition, you should appear at the
hearing and state your objections or file
written objections with the court before
the hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with
the court and mail a copy to the personal
representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four
months from the hearing date noticed
above. You may examine the file kept by
the court. If you are a person interested
in the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.
