CLEARLAKE — Authorities
expanded their search Monday for
a 9-year-old autistic girl from
South San Francisco who can’t
speak and went missing from her
family’s waterfront vacation
home in Northern California.
Additional volunteers and
divers were brought in to look for
Mikaela Lynch,
who disap-
peared on
Sunday while
playing in the
yard of her
home in the
H i g h l a n d s
Harbor neigh-
borhood of
Clear Lake in
Lake County, the Press Democrat
of Santa Rosa reported.
She is 4 feet tall, 70 pounds and
has brown hair and blue eyes,
according to the Lake County
Sheriff’s Office.
She can’t speak and has the
mental capacity of a 1-year-old,
Clearlake police Lt. Tim Celli
said. The home backs up to water-
Celli said Mikaela likes water
but does not swim. Police were
told she often removed her
clothes when she was hot. They
found articles of clothing in the
“We’re hoping for the best.
This was a terrible tragedy to have
a child go missing, especially on
Mother’s Day,” he said.
Mikaela had been playing on a
trampoline with her younger
brother when he went inside,
Celli said.
She was alone for an unknown
period of time. Her parents were
inside the house.
Her mother called for help
around 1:30 p.m. Search teams
from Sonoma, Napa and Marin
counties have joined the search

SACRAMENTO — California is
enjoying a revenue surplus for a
change. Gov. Jerry Brown is reap-
ing the benefits of an economic
turn-around and higher taxes as he
prepares to release his update
Tuesday for the coming fiscal
year’s budget.
The stock market is surgi ng,
home prices are up and the unem-
ployment rate is down, contribut-
ing to a revenue surge of $4.5 bil-
lion more than expected from per-
sonal income taxes.
But the Democratic governor,
who has pledged to maintain fiscal
restraint and build a cash reserve,
faces pent-up pressure from mem-
bers of his own
p a r t y .
D e mo c r a t i c
lawmakers want
to spend the
additional rev-
enue to make up
for years of
budget cuts to
programs serv-
ing women,
children and the poor.

D-Los Angeles, announced his fis-
cal priorities last week and said he

KCSM-TV could soon be sold to
LocusPoint Networks, according
to a cooperative agreement to sell
the station that will go before the
San Mateo County Community
College District Board of Trustees
Work to sell the station began in
2011, after the college district
opted to move forward when
efforts to eliminate a $1 million
operating deficit were unsuccess-
ful. On Wednesday, the board will
consider a cooperative agreement
with LocusPoint Networks which
would allow the district to contin-
ue running the station until a spec-
trum auction can be held. The dis-
trict would get quarterly payments
starting July 1 and be a partner
sharing in the proceeds from the
auction. The Federal

when it comes to priorities to
ensure the welfare of the communi-

The Alcohol and Other Drug
Prevention Partnerships are a col-

serve at-risk communities
throughout the Bay Area.
The partnerships are part of the

Center, a place for mediation
between community leaders and
the cities they live in, said
Michelle Vilchez, PCRC executive
director, who
was present
when the part-
nerships were
nearly four
years ago.
The mission
of the North

ship is to unite and strengthen the
working class neighborhood by
promoting healthier lifestyles —
through education, communica-

The project is led by a communi-

The program objective is to foster
collaborative engagement by
bringing people together, facili-
tating conversation and building
these skills in the community,
said Sara Randazzo, director of

O.J. returns to Las Vegas
court in bid for new trial
LAS VEGAS — Aweary-looking O.J.
Simpson weighed down by shackles
and four years in
prison shuffled into
a Las Vegas court-
room Monday hop-
ing to eventually
walk out a free man.
His arrival in court
to ask for a new trial
in the armed robbery
case that sent him to
prison in 2008
could be heard before he was seen — as
a loud rattling of the chains that bound
his hands to his waist and kept his feet
His lawyers had argued to forego the
restraints but were overruled. After the
65-year-old Simpson was seated, a
guard removed his handcuffs and
clicked them onto the chair arms next
to him.
The once glamorous sports hero,
who is more than four years into a min-
imum nine-year prison sentence, was
subdued as the hearing began. Grayer
and heavier, he flashed a smile and tried
to mouth a greeting to people he recog-
nized before being stopped by a bailiff
who had cautioned against any commu-
Wearing a dingy blue prison uniform,
Simpson listened intently to testimo-
ny presented as his lawyers contend he
had poor legal representation in the
trial involving the gunpoint robbery
of two sports memorabilia dealers in
2007 in a Las Vegas hotel room.
Choreographer: No
signs Jackson was ill in 2009
LOS ANGELES — An associate cho-
reographer who worked on Michael
Jackson’s planned comeback concerts
testified Monday that she didn’t see any
signs that the pop superstar was ill or
might die in the final days of his life.
“I just never in a million years
thought he would leave us, or pass
away,” Stacy Walker told jurors hearing
a lawsuit filed by Jackson’s mother
against concert promoter AEG Live
LLC. “It just never crossed my mind.”
Walker, who is testifying for AEG,
said Jackson appeared thinner than he
had been in previous years and wore
multiple layers of clothes while rehear-
ing for his “This Is It” shows planned
for London’s O2 arena. She said despite
Jackson missing multiple rehearsals,
she was convinced based on his per-
formances the last two days of his life
that he was ready for the series of
Previous witnesses have testified that
Jackson was shivering, had to be fed by
others and appeared unprepared.
Walker said she never saw any of that
behavior, although she acknowledged
that her job was to work with other
dancers and not Jackson directly.
Popular psychologist
Joyce Brothers dead at 85
LOS ANGELES — Joyce Brothers,
the pop psychologist who pioneered
the television
advice show in the
1950s and enjoyed
a long and prolific
career as a syndicat-
ed columnist,
author, and televi-
sion and film per-
sonality, has died.
She was 85.
Brothers died
Monday in New York City, according
to her longtime publicist, Sanford
Brokaw. The cause of death was not
immediately made public.
Brothers first gained fame on a game
show and went on to publish 15 books
and make cameo appearances on popu-
lar shows including “Happy Days” and
“The Simpsons.” She visited Johnny
Carson on “The Tonight Show” nearly
100 times.
The way Brothers liked to tell it, her
multimedia career came about “because
we were hungry. ”
It was 1955. Her husband, Milton
Brothers, was still in medical school
and Brothers had just given up her
teaching positions at Hunter College
and Columbia University to be home
with her newborn, firmly believing a
child’s development depended on it.

Getting to graduation required Juan Trujillo
to make some changes.
At San Mateo High School, the teen was
told by teachers that he wouldn’t amount to
anything. He wasn’t putting in the effort
needed to pass classes. When he attended, he
couldn’t do his work or homework. By the
end of his freshman year, Trujillo was hang-
ing with the wrong people, getting into trou-
ble and had only earned five credits toward
graduation — news which came as a shock to
his parents as Trujillo had become an expert
at intercepting calls from the school.
That negative behavior caught up to him at
the end of his freshman year. The call made it
to parents. His parents were disappointed and
Trujillo knew he needed to change his ways.
Now, with a new look and attitude, Trujillo
will be graduating from Peninsula High
School with plans to study business at the
College of San Mateo. He attributed much of
his current success to the support of family
and the Peninsula staff. But success also
required the 18-year-old to make personal
“Juan is one of the graduates [the teachers,
counselors and administrators] are most
proud of; he is proof that through a change of
attitude, anything is possible. He is a
remarkable young man who has overcome
many struggles and has turned his life around
for the best. His courage to change and his
honesty are two traits we all admire. He has
learned to face trouble with confidence and
deal with disappointment in a healthy way.
He embodies the values of Peninsula High
School,” said English teacher Cynthia
Prior to running into problems in high
school, Trujillo played basketball at the
Bayside S.T.E.M. Academy and started get-
ting involved in mixed martial arts. He con-
tinued with kung fu and sparing until later in
high school, when an injury kept him from
Hanging with the wrong crowd in high
school and getting into trouble meant
Trujillo couldn’t stay at San Mateo High
Trujillo wasn’t thrilled to enter Gateway, a
community school run through the county
Office of Education. It required him to get up
quite early to take the buses to get there and it
wasn’t run like a traditional school. Instead
of slacking off, he made some changes.
Trujillo cut his hair, started dressing nicer
and put his head down to get work done. Soon
he was making up lots of credits. Trujillo
hoped to go back to a comprehensive high
school but opted for Aragon so he could keep
his clean start going.
After a short transfer to the San Mateo
school, Trujillo realized he was still a bit low
on credits — which would make it difficult for
him to graduate on time at the comprehen-
sive school. Instead, he ended up at
Peninsula High School. Trujillo wasn’t
excited about that move either at first. Now,
as he prepares to graduate, he talked about the
supportive teachers and staff along with his
family and girlfriend who helped encourage
him to keep working.
It wasn’t just about school for Trujillo at
Peninsula. He participates in the auto body
regional occupational program, which
allows him to get hands-on work under the
hood of cars in Burlingame. For Trujillo, the
class is more of a hobby but he does enjoy
working on cars.
Looking ahead, Trujillo plans to study
business at the College of San Mateo.
Ultimately, he hopes to create some kind of
business that supports poor people who
struggle to cover their health care needs.
The Peninsula High School graduation will
be held 2 p.m. Thursday, May 30 at the
Skyline College Theater, 3300 College
Drive, San Bruno.

for port on Fourth
Redwood City’s sky over the port

for the popular 20-minute fireworks
display. The fireworks, co-spon-

will play in the port’s public access
area between 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.
and the fireworks will start at
approximately 9:20 p.m.
The fireworks returned to the city
in 2012 after a two-year hiatus
spurred by the high cost of mount-

The cash-strapped Woodside man
accused of shooting his wife twice in
the head and staging the death to look
like a suicide as a way to cover his
debts with more than $30 million in
life insurance took the stand yesterday
to tell jurors he is not responsible.
Pooroushasb “Peter” Parineh, 67,
claims on April 13, 2010, he found his
56-year-old wife, Parima, dead of self-
inflicted wounds in the master bedroom
of the Fox Hill Drive mansion they
were about to lose along with four
other properties in foreclosure. The
defense has told jurors Parima Parineh
was depressed and killed herself just
six weeks after an unsuccessful over-
dose to provide their three grown chil-
dren with some financial footing rather
than saddled with debt.
“I always expected to die sooner than
my wife,” Parineh said when ques-
tioned by prosecutor Jeff Finigan
about emails he wrote to his child
regarding insurance death benefit s.
The prosecution
has spent the past
few weeks building
its case on Parineh’s
financial undoing,
from being worth at
least tens of mil-
lions of dollars to
the brink of noth-
ing, and how
Parima Parineh died
just shy of when her
$30 million worth of insurance poli-
cies were set to collapse. The prosecu-
tion also wants jurors to believe
Parima Parineh did not fire at least
three, possibly four times, including
the two shots that entered her head.
The defense began its case at the end
of last week and Parineh himself took
the stand Monday morning to tell his
version of events. Parineh is charged
with first-degree murder for financial
gain which means, if convicted, he
faces life in prison without the possi-
bility of parole.
Dressed in a dark suit and tie, Parineh
tried to explain statements that the
prosecution has painted as pointing to
his culpability. After his wife’s first
failed suicide attempt in March 2010,
Parineh admitted he told his son he
missed out on the chance for $30 mil-
“I was very frustrated,” Parineh testi-
fied, saying he was addressing his chil-
dren’s “lack of gratitude and unappreci-
ation” with what he deemed a “very sar-
castic statement.”
When Finigan presented Parineh
with pages of phone records showing
multiple phone calls to his one-time
mistress the day his wife overdosed,
throughout her hospitalization and
upon her return home, he couldn’t
definitively recall the content of the
conversations. Parineh said he called
the woman once or twice a day “just to
talk to her” because he had no other
close friends and kept her number list-
ed in his Blackberry under a different
contact to maintain his privacy. That
said, Parineh said his wife didn’t go
through his phone or question his
friendship with the other woman.
“My wife trusted me,” he said.
Parineh remains in custody without
bail. The case continues today.

ASonoma county volunteer firefighter accused of setting

country’s economic
roller-coaster ride
has been interesting
and historic for
sure, but also very
troubling for many
families who’ve not
been as financially stable as others.
Recently though I’ve been observing a
phenomenon with those we serve at the
be too early to confirm, but it appears that
there is a general state of confidence with
many families, along with the decisions and
choices they make during funeral
arrangements. Yes, I know you are thinking
that “confidence” is not a term you would
use to coincide with “funeral arrangements”,
but it appears to me that people I see are
tending to be more financially assured than
during the deepest years of “The Great
They say that the two things you can’t
avoid are “death and taxes”. With that in
mind, during the economic downturn I saw a
very noticeable sense of “thrift” and
“prudence” with a lot of families who
experienced a death during that period.
Still, those who tended to “cost shop” at
various funeral homes selected CHAPEL
OF THE HIGHLANDS to handle funeral or
cremation arrangements. These families
found comfort with our service, and notably
with our more economic cost structure.
Now, lately the trend with families and
their funeral choices reminds me of the days
way before the recession hit. It’s not that
people are utilizing their funds differently,
spending more or spending less, but that
they are more assertive and confident when
using their wallet. Seeing this over and over
gives me a good indication that something in
the economic climate is changing compared
to not that long ago.
Even though many of our honorable
elected officials in Sacramento and
Washington D.C. appear to be as inflexible
with economic issues as always, the air of
confidence with the families I’ve been
dealing with means to me that these people
are feeling less pressured financially.
It is well known that when businesses do
well they hire more employees, and when
those employees are confident they will
spend their money on goods and services.
In turn, the companies that provide goods
and services will need competent employees
to create more goods, give more services,
and so on…making a positive circle for a
healthy economy. In relation to that, after a
long period of U.S. manufacturing jobs
being sent over-seas there is news of a
growing number of companies bringing this
work back to the United States. Real Estate
values on the Peninsula remained in a good
state during the recession, but houses here
are now in demand more than ever.
“Encouraging” “Hopeful” and “Positive”
are words to describe the optimistic
vibrations that people are giving off. If the
community is becoming more comfortable
with spending, that indicates good health for
business and the enrichment of our
economic atmosphere. I hope I’m right, so
let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)

Fernando Vega
Former Redwood City councilman
Fernando Vega, born Nov. 20, 1924, died
May 9, 2013 peacefully
at home surrounded by
family. He was 88.
Vega dedicated himself
to service and his family.
His dedication to
Redwood City has taken
many forms including
serving on the City
Council, Redwood City
Elementary School
District Board of Trustees and, most recent-
l y, as a commissioner on the San Mateo
County Civil Grand Jury and the San Mateo
County Civil Service Commission.
Born in Houston, Texas, Vega was raised
in Brownsville, Texas — a small border
town near South Padre Island. While in the
U.S. Army Air Corps, Vega met his wife
Tina. They married in 1948 and remained
faithfully together until his death. Being in
the Air Corps led Vega to a job with Pan
American Airways where he worked as an
airline mechanic until 1984.
In 1960, Vega was transferred to San
Francisco International Airport, and the
family — which included six children by
then — moved near downtown Redwood
City. To supplement their earnings, the fam-
ily opened a small grocery store, Vega’s
Market and Grill on Middlefield Road. They
ran the business until 1984 but it still bears
the family name.
Vega first became involved with the
Kiwanis in the late ’80s, specifically help-
ing to assist in the farmers’ market down-
town on Saturday mornings. He continued
to volunteer with the farmers’ market until
about five years ago, when a stroke prevent-
ed him from being as mobile.
Vega was preceded in death by his son
David (Pat). He is survived by his wife Tina;
children: Oscar (Nada), George (Karen),
Eloy (Sef), Fernando (Carol) and Belinda;
grandchildren: Chris (Heather), Nita
(Nathan), Dan (Colleen), Jason, Gabe
(Monica), Tony, Alex, Miguel, Emiliano,
Elias, Victoria; great-grandchildren: Sarah,
Rebekah, Joe, Jonathan, Heather, William,
Magnus, Christine, Arwen and Georgia. He
also leaves behind many family members
still in Texas.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made
to the Redwood City Kiwanis or the Make-
A-Wish Greater Bay Area Chapter.
A rosary service will be held 2 p.m.
Sunday, May 19 at Redwood Chapel, 847
Woodside Road, Redwood City. A funeral
mass will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 21
at the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 1040
Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont.
Donald T. Eikenberry
Donald T. Eikenberry M.D., born Nov. 4,
1923, died April 28, 2013 peacefully at
home at the age of 89.
He graduated from
Stanford University in
1948 and from the
Stanford Medical School
in 1953 with specialty
training in internal medi-
cine. He was a partner of
the Permanente Medical
Group until his retire-
ment in 1986. He was an
active member of the San Mateo County
Medical Society.
He is survived by his loving wife of 60
years, Margaret (Miki). He will be remem-
bered in the hearts of his four children
Shirley Lesure (Wynn) of Phoenix, Carl
(Trudy) of Fremont, Eric (Barb) of
Wisconsin and Lisa Jewett (Michael) of Palo
Alto, and his six grandchildren Marie,
Chris, Amy, Anthony, Andy and Stuart. He
was preceded in death by his beloved broth-
er Warren, and survived by his sisters
Shirley Bowman and Helen Fullmer.
As requested, his ashes will be interned in
the Trinity Memorial Garden.
A memorial service will be held 2 p.m.
Saturday, June 1 at Trinity Church in Menlo
Park, 330 Ravenswood Ave., CA 94025. In
lieu of flowers, donations to the Trinity
Church Music Fund to honor this longtime
chorister would be appreciated.

SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers
advanced a bill Monday that would prevent
taxpayer money from being used to promote
local bond measures.
It is illegal for school districts to use tax
dollars to hire political consultants to pass
bond measures. But critics say municipal
finance firms include campaigning in their
package of bond services when they con-
tract with the districts. They recover the
costs through other fees.
“The local agencies then in effect are
using taxpayer funds to pass bond measures
that the taxpayers must pay back,” said
Assemblyman Don Wagner, R-Irvine, who
is carrying the bill seeking to halt the prac-
tice. “That is illegal when done directly. ”
Wagner’s legislation would prohibit
school districts and other local agencies
from contracting with firms that provide
campaign services for bond measures.
The Assembly approved AB621 on a 51-
10 vote, with Democrats casting the
votes in opposition. It now heads to the

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama tried to swat down a
pair of brewing controversies
Monday, denouncing as “outra-

tive political groups by the feder-
al IRS but angrily denying any
administration cover-up after last
year’s deadly attacks in Benghazi,
Simultaneous investigations —
and demands by Republicans for
more — have put the White House
on the defensive, emboldened
GOP lawmakers and threatened to
overtake a second-term Obama
agenda already off to a rocky start.
During a joint news conference
with British Prime Minister David
Cameron, the normally even-
keeled Obama appeared agitated
over the resurgent investigation
into the September attack at a U.S.
diplomatic compound in
Benghazi. He dismissed the
Republican-driven effort as a
“sideshow” that dishonors the
four Americans who were killed,
including Ambassador
Christopher Stevens.
“There’s no there there,” Obama
declared in his first public com-
ments since GOP lawmakers
launched new hearings on the mat-
ter. “The fact that this keeps on
getting churned up, frankly, has a
whole lot to do with political
Seeking to keep another contro-
versy from spinning out of con-
trol, the president rebuked the IRS
for scrutinizing the tax-exempt
status of groups with conservative
titles such as “Tea Party” or
“Patriot” in their names. Those
responsible, Obama said, must be
held “fully accountable.”
“I’ve got no patience with it,”
he added. “I will not tolerate it and
we will find out exactly what hap-
The president said he first
learned of the matter Friday when
it was reported by news organiza-
tions. Spokesman Jay Carney said
later that the White House coun-
sel’s office was alerted on April 22
that the IRS inspector general was
completing a review of an IRS
office in Cincinnati.
Neither issue appears to be
going away any time soon.

Plans to bring a select-service hotel
with meeting space to San Bruno will
first require a bit of study, which the
City Council will consider approving
In February, the San Bruno City
Council unanimously directed staff to
move forward with negotiating exclu-
sive development rights with South
Carolina-based OTO Development to
build a 131-room Marriott Springhill
Suites with 3,000 square feet of meeting
space. Once completed, the lifestyle
hotel will be built as the last part of the
Crossing development. Before any-
thing can be built, environmental stud-
ies need to be completed. On Tuesday,
the council will consider authorizing up
to $106,000 to be spent with
Environmental Sciences Associates to
prepare the initial study.
Last year, the city purchased the
vacant lot south of Jack’s Restaurant,
1050 Admiral Court, and north of
Interstate 380 to ensure it was devel-
oped in a way that benefits the city.
OTO Development’s vision includes a
five-story hotel that is about 77,000
square feet of floor area, 70 feet tall with
parking both below and at grade. The
$30 million project will have two natu-
ral gas shuttles available to transport
hotel patrons to local businesses and to
and from the San Francisco
International Airport. It will feature
3,000 square feet of meeting space,
enough room for up to 400 people for
meetings depending on the configura-
tion. The hotel will have a free break-
fast buffet and all-day coffee and tea
service as well as a 24-hour market with
convenience and food items for sale.
Under the project timeline, OTO
Development estimates it will take a
total of three years from agreeing to
start negotiations to opening the hotel
doors in 2016.
At the same meeting, the council will
hold a public hearing for possible
changes to the rules governing mas-
sage establishments — a move many
have made to prevent prostitution and
human trafficking operating under the
guise of legitimate businesses.
San Bruno has 10 known massage
establishments but the rules in the city
do not require consistent licensing.
Tuesday’s discussion will include revis-
ing the rules to be more aligned with
the state. In addition, San Bruno would
create a system of issuing certificates of
registration to those who comply with
state law, according to a staff report by
City Attorney Marc Zafferano.
In 2008, the state passed a law gov-
erning massage establishments and
giving voluntary oversight to the non-
profit California Massage Therapy
Council. The change was meant to free
practitioners from background checks
and license fees in any and all cities
where they worked. San Bruno’s rules
were adopted in 2009, shortly after the
state rules originally went into effect,
according to a staff report.
Under the new ordinance, the city
would require all massage practitioners
to have state certification, register with
the city and that massage parlors can
only employ state-certified employees.
The ordinance also spells out other
requirements such as clean linens, sani-
tized equipment and no closed shades or
curtains on front windows and doors
during business hours of 7 a.m. to 9
p.m. It would also provide the city the
right to enter during business hours to
conduct reasonable inspections related
to building, health and other code
The council meets 7 p.m. Tuesday,
May 14 at the Senior Center, 1555
Crystal Springs Road, San Bruno.
Records: Cleveland suspect
faced prior complaints
CLEVELAND — Aman charged with
holding three women captive for about
a decade had been accused of threatening
his neighbors, attacking his common-
law wife and committing violations
during his career as a school bus driver,
according to records released Monday.
The Cleveland police reports corre-
spond with accounts provided by rela-
tives of suspect Ariel Castro last week
that portrayed a man prone to violent
outbursts, especially when it came to
the mother of his children and incur-
sions onto his property.
Castro, 52, is charged with kidnap-
ping and rape, but prosecutors expect to
file more charges. The three women
whom he is accused of holding captive
disappeared between August 2002 and
April 2004. They were rescued last week
when one of them escaped the home.

Gov’t obtains months of
AP phone records in probe
By Mark Sherman
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department secretly obtained
two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for
the Associated Press in what the news cooperative’s top exec-
utive called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how
news organizations gather the news.
The records obtained by the Justice Department listed out-
going calls for the work and personal phone numbers of indi-
vidual reporters, for general AP office numbers in New York,
Washington and Hartford, Conn., and for the main number for
the AP in the House of Representatives press gallery, accord-
ing to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also
included incoming calls or the duration of the calls.
In all, the government seized the records for more than 20
separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in
April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who
used the phone lines during that period is unknown, but more
than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records
were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and
other matters.

Letters to the editor
By Sabrina V. Guerrero
front page story in the San
Mateo Daily Journal in May
2012 reported on the
impending closure of the Ice Center of
San Mateo, home to the Bridgepointe
Blades Figure Skating Performance
Team and the California Cougars
Hockey Team. Since then, subsequent
opinion pieces were printed in sup-
port of the rink written by Kevin
Tom, Julie McAuliffe, prominent par-
ents in skating, along with others.
The Ice Center of San Mateo is
located in the Bridgepointe Shopping
Center. The owner of the mall is a cor-
porate entity called SPI Holdings
LLC. SPI Holdings LLC wants to hold
the recreational amenity off-site. It
made a proposal to San Mateo City
Council asking to fund an existing
turf soccer field to fulfill the recre-
ational amenity and replace the exist-
ing ice rink facility with retail. In just
nanoseconds, the entire rink went
into a panic frenzy.
The many clients of the Ice Center
of San Mateo created a Facebook
forum called Save The Bridgepointe
Rink. Practically everyone wrote
something to express their ideas on
saving the ice rink. Of all the ideas
presented, there was one idea written
by a hockey player and Realtor that
stood out as the best possible way to
work things out for an ice rink. He
proposed that the Ice Center work
with SPI to fund a new ice rink off-site
instead of a soccer field in exchange
for giving them the existing location
of our ice rink. This seems like a rea-
sonable proposi-
tion. I kept asking
myself what hap-
pened when the Ice
Center legal team
tried to propose
What if the future
ice rink of San
Mateo could be
inside an athletic complex located
off-site? Perhaps it could include
another skating boutique and feature a
Starbucks, Subway and other athletic
amenities for those not interested in
skating. Just include an ice rink.
Last week, I sat in on my first ever
council meeting to support the Ice
Center of San Mateo. I watched
numerous tearful pleas from many
teens, young adults, parents and chil-
dren pleading to an expressionless
City Council to please give them a
place to skate. Much that was said
drilled a hole in my heart so deep no
void could possibly fill it. They wait-
ed more than two and a half hours to
be heard at this meeting because other
meetings that were supposed to be
held were never held.
I had no doubt the Ice Center
Enterprises made every possible
effort to include an ice rink as part of
the off-site recreational variance only
to get the door slammed in their face
every time even after they told their
landlord they would fund most of it.
Its ironic how Corporate America
found all kinds of money when they
swindled millions of investors in the
Enron scandal. The banking and home
mortgage industries had no problems
earning their bonuses and private jet
planes as part of their scheme to grant
subprime loans that triggered an ever
spiraling economic collapse that has
spun out of control.
These young future constituents of
San Mateo are only pleading with the
City Council to approve a variance
that would include figure skating and
ice hockey among the many other cur-
rently existing recreational amenities
in San Mateo. Though many aren’t
legal yet, they aren’t stupid. They
know their needs were shoved aside
for corporate greed.
Summer is coming and there will be
no ice rink with air conditioning. SPI
Holdings LLC and the city of San
Mateo robbed them of their facility. If
this is a democracy, where does the
power of San Mateo future con-
stituents lie?
The City Council cannot tell pri-
vate enterprise what to do for fear of a
possible property rights infringe-
ment lawsuit. They do however have
veto power over any variance agree-

chance to become the
next intergalactic
Snookie, who wouldn’t
be game for this out of this world opportunity? First
off, it’s Mars. Which means there are Martians. Which
means there could be an actual Marvin the Martian
who is undoubtedly the best of the Looney Tunes char-
acters. Those folks of a certain Brady Bunch era could
also pass the time whining “Martian! Martian!
Martian!” which would also undoubtedly be highly
annoying and cause fellow space travelers to cut off
said funny person’s oxygen supply.
Then there’s the fun relics of the Mars rover — the
high-tech machine was meant to expand our under-
standing of the planet but instead photos of its draw-
ings expanded the viewpoint that even robots aren’t
immune from frat humor. The rover, in pictures publi-
cized in April, used its artificial intelligent to “draw” a
penis on the planet with its track marks. With that
kind of Earth-like graffiti already in place, what new
explorer wouldn’t feel at home?
Applicants don’t even need a high school or college
degree which means no need to call Education
Connection; instead, just be at least 18, in relatively
good health and comfortable with a lack of running
water and oxygen, radiation and temperatures that are
by no means best by government test. All that engi-
neering and science and training comes later.
Bottom line, thanks to Mars One, not everybody
needs to be Richard Branson to make their space
dreams fly.
There is one catch to this otherwise cool sounding
way to rocket up the career trajectory. The gig is a
one-way ticket. The volunteers picked for this assign-
ment might get fame and a sense of accomplishment
but what they aren’t getting is a trip back home.
This caveat might give some pause — then again it
spares participants from a lifetime of family holiday
drama — but it might also provide an opportunity for
governments to take a page from Australian history
and do a little housekeeping of the penal system. Take
California, for example. Who needs realignment to
thin out the state prison ranks when officials could
instead give inmates the choice between incarceration
and exploration? Think of it as a throwback to the
days when the U.S. Army was the alternative for
But if earthlings don’t dare trust the colonization of
Mars to individuals who might not be that great at
toeing the line, Mars One might be better off picking
from the Trekkies and Star Wars geeks clamoring for
the chance of the lifetime — their entire lifetime, as it
While the thought of committing the rest of one’s
life to one goal sounds a little daunting, for those up
for the challenge, it is better than sending out count-
less resumes and hoping those liberal arts degrees
translate into something more substantial than French
fry technician. Besides, it might be the one time par-
ticipants feel like bragging about a dead-end job.

NEW YORK — A record-breaking
rally in stocks paused Monday as
investors assessed whether the rise in
stock valuations overstated the recent
improvement in the economy.
The latest positive data, out
Monday, showed that Americans
increased spending at retailers last
month. That suggests that consumers
may boost economic growth in the
current quarter ending June 30. Still,
that wasn’t enough to lift shares.
“What we have seen is a huge rally,
and there aren’t any stones unturned at
this point,” said Alec Young, global
equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ.
“You reach a point where investors
aren’t willing to bid things up any
Stocks have surged this year, boost-
ed by an improving economy, Federal
Reserve stimulus and record corporate
earnings. Signs that the housing mar-
ket is reviving are also supporting
stocks. The Dow Jones industrial
average and the Standard and Poor’s
500 index both closed at record highs
Retail sales increased 0.1 percent in
April from March, the Commerce
Department said Monday. That’s an
improvement from the 0.5 percent
decline in March, which was the
largest drop in nine months.
Economists had forecast that sales
declined by 0.3 percent.
Consumer sentiment is improving
as the housing market recovers, which
is giving people the confidence to
spend more, said Doug Cote, chief
market strategist at ING Investment
“If housing continues its upward tra-
jectory, the animal spirits of the con-
sumer will continue to be bolstered,”
said Cote.
On Monday, stocks started lower
before paring some of those losses
throughout the day.
The Dow fell 26.81 points, or 0.2
percent, to 15,091.68. The S&P 500
index was little changed at 1,633.77.
The Dow is up 15.2 percent this year,
and the S&P 500 is 14.6 percent high-
Telecommunications companies
dropped the most of any industry
group in the S&P 500 index, falling
0.83 percent. Health care companies
advanced the most, rising 0.7 percent.
Health care companies have risen
21.4 percent this year, the most of
any of the 10 industry groups in the
S&P 500. Investors have been buying
the stocks because they offer some
growth prospects and also pay large
More than 90 percent of companies
in the S&P 500 have reported earnings
for the first quarter, and corporate earn-
ings are projected to grow by an aver-
age of 5 percent for the period, accord-
ing to data from S&P Capital IQ.
Earnings growth is projected to slow
to 3.7 percent in the second quarter
before climbing again in the second
half of the year.
That strong earnings outlook for the
end of the year means that stocks will
likely end 2013 strongly, said Ron
Sloan, a senior portfolio manager at
Invesco. In the immediate future
though, the direction of stocks is less
certain, he said.
“The trick is what happens between
here to there?” said Sloan. “I’m afraid
that we are going to have to give back
some of what we’ve made this year. ”

where investors aren’t willing to bid things up any more.”

WASHINGTON — Lower-priced gas
allowed Americans to step up their spending
at retailers in April, from cars and clothes to
electronics and appliances. The rebound
from a weak March suggests consumers
remain resilient in the face of higher taxes
and could continue to drive economic
growth this spring.
Retail sales edged up 0.1 percent in April,
the Commerce Department said Monday.
That’s an improvement from a 0.5 percent
decline in March, the largest drop in nine
The April gain was stronger when taking
out the effect of lower gas prices, which
reduced sales at gas stations 4.7 percent.
The retail sales report is not adjusted for
price changes.
When excluding gas station sales, retail
spending rose 0.7 percent. And core retail
sales, which exclude gas, autos and building
supplies, increased 0.5 percent.
Economists pay close attention to core
sales because they strip out the most
volatile categories.
Sales of autos rose 1 percent in April,
rebounding from a 0.6 percent drop in
March. Sales at clothing stores
increased 1.2 percent and sales at gener-
al merchandise stores, a category that
covers department stores, rose 1 per-
cent. Sales were also strong at building
materials and garden supply stores and
electronics and appliance stores.
Consumers increased their spending in
April, despite paying higher Social
Security taxes that has reduced their pay-
checks this year. Their spending will likely
add to economic growth in the April-June
quarter. Consumer spending makes up
roughly 70 percent of economic activity.
“This is a good start to the second quar-
ter,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at
BMO Capital Markets. “The rest of the year
is expected to rise further on stronger
household finances.”
The economy grew at a 2.5 percent annu-
al rate from January through March, up from
a 0.4 percent rate in the October-December
quarter of 2012. The gain was largely
because of the fastest growth in consumer
spending in more than two years.
But most of the increase came from
greater spending at the start of the quarter.
Consumers cut back sharply on retail
spending in March, while paying more for
utilities to heat their homes during a colder-
than-usual month.
Some economists had worried that the
weak month of spending in March was a
sign that the tax increase was starting to
catch up with the consumer.
But other factors appear to have made the
consumer more resilient.
Chris G. Christopher Jr., director of con-
sumer economics at IHS Global Economics,
said that falling gas prices and an improv-
ing job market have cushioned some of the
impact of the higher Social Security taxes.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A federal judge
approved a $40 million class-action settle-
ment Monday between Skechers USA Inc.
and consumers who bought toning shoes
after ads made unfounded claims that the
footwear would help people lose weight and
strengthen muscles.
U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell in
Louisville approved the deal, which covers
more than 520,000 claims. About 1,000
people eligible for coverage by the settle-
ment opted not to take part.
Those with approved claims will be able
to get a maximum repayment for their pur-
chase — up to $80 per pair of Shape-Ups;
$84 per pair of Resistance Runner shoes; up
to $54 per pair of Podded Sole Shoes; and
$40 per pair of Tone-Ups.
Russell also awarded $5 million for the
attorneys in the case to split. Russell
ordered that the money cannot come from
the $40 million settlement fund set aside for
Two people that served as the lead plain-
tiffs in the case will receive payments of
$2,500 each.
Russell considered multiple factors in
deciding to approve the settlement and
found it provides just compensation to the
“Accordingly, the court finds that the pro-
posed settlement is fair, reasonable and ade-
quate,” Russell wrote.
The approval comes a year after
Manhattan Beach-based Skechers reached a
deal with the Federal Trade Commission
over the ads. The settlement covers more
than 70 lawsuits from across the country.
The lawsuits were consolidated in federal
court in Louisville. Skechers denied the
allegations but said it settled to avoid long
The settlement grew out of a series of ads
Skechers aired featuring celebrity endorsers
such as Kim Kardashian and Brooke Burke,
with claims that the shoes could help peo-
ple lose weight and strengthen their butt,
leg and stomach muscles.
Skechers billed its Shape-ups as a fitness
tool designed to promote weight loss and
tone muscles with the shoe’s curved “rock-
er” or rolling bottom — saying it provides
natural instability and causes the consumer
to “use more energy with every step.”
Shape-ups cost about $100 and are sold at
retailers nationwide.

MOUNTAIN VIEW — LinkedIn and
Facebook will celebrate the anniversaries of
their IPOs just a few days apart this week.
But their experiences as publicly traded
companies couldn’t be more different.
LinkedIn Corp. promotes its service as a
stepping stone to a more enriching career.
As it turns out, the professional networking
company’s initial public offering was a
great place to start a rewarding investment
portfolio, too. LinkedIn’s stock has nearly
quadrupled in value from its $45 IPO price
on May 20 two years ago. On Monday, it
closed at $175.03 per share. In contrast,
Facebook’s stock is hovering around $27
per share, down 29 percent since debuted on
May 18, 2012 at $38.
LinkedIn is emerging as the standout per-
former among its cohort of hotly anticipat-
ed IPOs from Internet companies that con-
nect people with common interests. The
company is growing faster and yielding far
better shareholder returns than the rest of a
class that includes online deals maker
Groupon Inc., Web game maker Zynga Inc.
and business review site Yelp Inc., as well
social networking leader Facebook Inc.

High-tech pushes for
more in immigration bill
WASHINGTON — High-tech companies
looking to bring more highly skilled work-
ers to the U.S. are pushing for more conces-
sions in an immigration bill pending in the
Senate. But labor unions say the Silicon
Valley has already gotten enough in the bill
and any further changes risk chipping away
at protections for U.S. workers.
The dispute will play out in a Capitol Hill
hearing room this week as the Senate
Judiciary Committee resumes consideration
of amendments to sweeping legislation
remaking the nation’s immigration system.
High-tech companies have a champion on
the Judiciary Committee in Republican Sen.

of amendments to help their cause.
GM says supercomputers
to keep recalls in check
WARREN, Mich — General Motors Co.
says a new supercomputing data center and a
fledgling shift to bring software develop-
ment in-house should help it limit the size
of future safety recalls.
The Detroit automaker, which formally
opened the giant data storage center in sub-
urban Warren, Mich., on Monday, said the
changes are examples of how it is moving
faster to cut costs and serve its customers
better by bringing more computer technol-
ogy inside the company.

ric Jacobson is El Camino High
School. A1988 graduate, he has
poured his entire life into the
school as a student, athlete, teacher, coach
and athletic director.
So there was no one more satisfied and
proud when voters passed a bond measure
to upgrade the athletic facilities at the
school. Construction has already begun on
installing a new artificial turf field and all-
weather track, as well as viewing stands on
both sides of the field and a new press box.
It cost $4.3 million, supplied by the pass-
ing of bond Measure J in
And the El Camino
family can thank
Jacobson, and many
others, for their work
and effort in getting the
changes made.
“I finally realized I
should be doing some-
thing other than fooling
around on YouTube. I
kept asking, ‘When is
someone going to do
something? When is
someone going to do something?’ Then I
realized I had to do it,” Jacobson said. “It’s
the biggest thing I’ve ever been a part of in
my life. When they voted for it, a couple of
kids came up to give me a hug and I had to
leave (because I was so emotional).”
With the new renovations, El Camino
will be able to host track meets for the first
time in about 20 years. More importantly,
the Colts will finally get to really host
“The Bell Game” — the annual football
game against rival South City which has
always been played at South City’s Clifford
“It’s the first time we get to host ‘The
Bell Game’ in 52 years. Even when we were
the home team, it never felt like a home
game (having to always play at South
City),” Jacobson said. “The kids are really
excited about that.”
Even though construction has already
begun, the school and the school board
will be holding a groundbreaking ceremo-
ny of sorts Wednesday, May 15, beginning
at 2 p.m. just outside the school’s gym.
After a number of speakers, fans and sup-
porters can go up to the construction site
to see how things are going.
“Right now, the only thing left is the old
scoreboard,” Jacobson said.
Jacobson said the goal is to have the
field ready by for the football season. If
everything goes according to plan, the
Colts plan to host their first home game on
the new field Sept. 27.

Titles won and records set by Honor Roll
By Julio Lara
The Daily Journal Honor Roll has official-
ly entered the home stretch — that means
end-of-the-year championship numbers and
All-league seasons.
Over at the Central Coast Section swim-
ming championship, Terra Nova’s Bryant
Jacobs and Carlmont’s Ivan Garin had dou-
ble-bronze medal performances. Also
medaling there were Kevin Pomeroy of Half
Moon Bay and Joe Kmak of Serra.
On the girls’ side, Ally Howe’s legend
continues to grow. She won two golds and a
bronze in Santa Clara. Burlingame’s Leah
Goldman and Menlo-Atherton’s Brooke
Stenstrom were also medalists.
Also in CCS-winning action, Menlo
School boys’ tennis picked up its 11th title
since 1998 — further cementing them-
selves as an athletic dynasty. Part of 2013’s
success is due to the team’s depth, and that’s
where Daniel Morkovine comes in. Menlo’s
No. 2 singles player went 3-0 at No. 2 sin-
gles during last Friday’s win over Serra.
Morkovine also did not lose a match at
No. 3 singles in the CCS semifinals against
Bellarmine on Wednesday or the section
quarterfinals against Leland on Monday.
“He cares so much about the team,” Menlo
coach Bill Shine said via email.
In league championship action, Jonathan
Beering and Arnie Sambel of Serra track and
field dominated the throwing events at the
West Catholic Athletic League champi-
Sambel won the discus title with a throw
of 156-11, bettering his preliminary mark
by more than 20 feet. He followed that with
a second-place finish in the shot put.
Sambel was second to Beering in the shot
put, who posted a mark of 59-1, five feet
better than his teammate, who was five feet
better than the third-place finisher.

Big day for Howe, M-A girls in CCS pool
NCFOA looking for new officiating class
By Julio Lara
There is zero doubt that Sacred Heart
Prep’s Ally Howe has incredible talent in
the swimming pool. Fans of the Gator
speedster saw her burst onto the scene as a
freshman and really shine at her first Central
Coast Section championships two seasons
But now as a junior, Howe’s talents have
morphed into the record-breaking variety.
While there wasn’t any gold, silver or
bronze success on the team front at the CCS
swimming championships, there were plen-
ty of individual highlights.
Howe is chief among those. The junior
swimmer broke the CCS record in the 100-
yard backstroke with a 52.32. Howe also
won gold in the 200-individual medley with
a 1:58.23 — the only female swimmer to
hit the wall in under two minutes.
On the team front, the reigning Peninsula
Athletic League girls’ champions, Menlo-
Atherton, represented well with a fourth-
place finish. The Bears were only a point
away from taking the bronze medal from
Archbishop Mitty of San Jose.
Howe’s Prep finished eighth while
Burlingame was 11th.
The Panther girls faired well thanks in
large part to the efforts of the now-leg-
endary Leah Goldman. The junior gave
Howe a run in the 200-yard individual med-
ley, finishing second with a 2:00.61. She

Hurdler Evan Skovronski and
thrower Evan McDaniel blew away
the competition to win Northern
California track and field titles at
American River College in
Sacramento over the weekend.
The duo leads College of San
Mateo’s qualifiers for the state
finals, which the Bulldogs will
host at College Heights Stadium
on Friday and Saturday, May 17
and 18.
Skovronski led throughout his
400-meter hurdles race, lowering
his own CSM record to 52.32 sec-
onds and improving upon his No.
3 state ranking time. He beat Ryan
Colebrook of Fresno City College
by more than three tenths of a sec-
National leader Evan McDaniel
won the shot by nearly six feet
with a put of 57 feet, 2 3/4 inch-
es — in the hunt for that elusive
60-foot mark.
Butte’s Austin Harlicker was the
only other thrower to surpass 50
feet, placing second at 51-3 3/4.
McDaniel also placed third in
the discus throw at 159-6 (behind
the state’s top two throwers) and
fifth with the hammer (167-8) to
reach the state finals on his home
field in three events.
Collin Luu placed just behind
McDaniel in the discus to earn a
state berth.
McDaniel’s shot best of 58-4
leads all U.S. community college
athletes and his discus mark of
159-6 ranks No. 9.
San Mateo Javelin throwers
Scott Chisea and Anthony
Capitulo did not have their best
day, but still advanced to the state
finals. Both threw 183-2, with
Chisea getting the tie-breaker for
fifth place.
CSM’s 4x100-meter relay team
of Ryan Batte, Erik Hammond,
Dijonn Williams and Skovronski
finished sixth in 42.14, just miss-
ing the fifth place state meet con-
sideration spot.
San Mateo’s 4x400-meter relay
team of Gabriel Ortiz (49.4),
Skovronski (48.5), Zach Cantu
(40.5) and Williams (49.1) ran a
season best 3:16.47, finishing
Williams was also 12th in the
long jump at 21-4.
Anthony Cortes finished 15th in
the 5,000 meters in 16:41.34.
Host American River won the
men’s championship with 128
points. San Mateo was seventh
with 47.
On the women’s side, Moreen
Pahulu qualified for the state finals
in two throwing events, placing
fifth in the javelin throw (110-11)
and sixth in the shot put (36-8
1/2). She was also seventh in the
discus throw (119-11) and eighth
in the hammer throw (146-8).
Sprinter Breanna Navarro fin-
ished sixth in a tough 100-meter
race with a 12.23.
The California Community
Colleges Athletic Association’s
state championship competition
begins 9:30 a.m. Friday with the
men’s decathlon 100 meters.
The only track finals that day are
the 10,000 meter races.
There will be eight field event
finals on Friday: the hammer and
javelin throws and the long and
high jumps, for women and men
— starting at 10 a.m. and conclud-
ing at approximately 5 p.m.
On Saturday, competition con-
tinues in the decathlon at 9 a.m.
and the heptathlon at 10 a.m.
Field event finals begin at 12:15
p.m. with the men’s shot put, fea-
turing CSM’s McDaniel.

West title to the surprising A’s .
Griffin (4-3) went seven innings
and didn’t walk a batter for the first
time this season, earning his sec-
ond victory in six outings since
he won back-to-back appearances
to start the year.
Mitch Moreland homered to
give the Rangers the lead in the
second, then Eric Sogard and John
Jaso hit RBI singles for the A’s in
the bottom half.
Griffin faced either the minimum
or one more batter in each of his
final five innings, helped by a pair
of double plays. He improved to 3-
0 in four starts against division
The right-hander got a scare
when he ducked out of the way of
Adrian Beltre’s sharp single up the
middle leading off the seventh,
and the pitcher patted his hand on
his pounding heart once back on
his feet. Sean Doolittle struck out
the side in order on 12 pitches in
the eighth.
Cespedes hit an 0-1 pitch just
over the center-field wall above
leaping Leonys Martin in the
third. But the Cuban slugger came
out of the game in the top of the
fifth with a stomach illness.
The Rangers (24-14) arrived in
the Bay Area having won seven of
nine and began the day with the
best record in the majors, but
again ran into their division
Oakland became the first team in
major league history to win a divi-
sion or pennant after trailing by
five games with fewer than 10 to
play, stunning the two-time reign-
ing AL champion Rangers in game
No. 162. Oakland trailed by 13
games on June 30.
“We’re not in here for any
revenge,” Rangers manager Ron
Washington said. “They beat us,
we understand that, but there’s
nothing we can do about that.”

done to get the ball rolling on
putting in the new facilities. He
was initially told there was no
money left after a number of other
projects, but Jacobson and El
Camino supporters kept pushing
the school board and others to
upgrade the facilities.
“I went to every board meeting.
I wrote emails. All the boosters
went to meetings. We made our
voices heard,” Jacobson said.
“We had a good cause. We showed
them pictures of the field. We had
parents whose kids suffered
injuries because of the field talk
to the board.
“It had to be done. [Seeing the
facilities] was like taking a trip
back to 1961 (when the school
first opened). The only upgrade
(since the school opened) was
putting in a new scoreboard in
1991. I helped dig the ditch for
Jacobson said he was finally
pushed to action after seeing the
Jefferson High School District
put in brand-new, state-of-the-art
facilities at Terra Nova, Oceana
and Westmoor.
“It was really hard seeing these
guys (schools) have these crown-
jewel facilities and we have
gopher holes every five yards,”
Jacobson said.
Jacobson said he has already
noticed a renewed school pride
and spirit since construction
began May 2. He is especially
happy for the kids, who will now
have an enhanced classroom
experience. Don’t forget, athletic
fields and the track are considered
a classroom.
“We always took pride (in our
facilities) because it was ours. But
we can do better,” Jacobson said.
“The freshmen, sophomores and
juniors are ecstatic. The seniors
are happy too to see this happen
to the high school.

staff is alumni. I think we’re more
excited as a staff. We’ve lived

said. “We train everyone in the

means just as the students are

debrief after the game and under-

we can improve on both as a crew

early December, but there are plen-

By Janie McCauley
SAN FRANCISCO — At around age 10,
Hunter Pence acquired a Barry Bonds poster
from his elementary school fair. It was then
that Pence started choking up on his bat just
as Bonds did in that prized picture that
wound up on his wall.
Pence has become one of the San
Francisco Giants’ most reliable hitters with
his unique, funky style — and no question
emulating baseball’s home run king has
served him well for two decades since his
days of youth baseball.
“I just grab it where it feels good,” Pence
said. “I’ve always choked up, since about 10
or 11ish years old. I don’t remember exactly
but I had a Barry Bonds poster that I bought
and he was choked up, and I kind of copied
him. He was one of my favorite players.”
Not only does Pence have a team-leading
seven home runs while batting .291 with
nine doubles and a triple, he is the only one
on the reigning World Series champions to
start all 38 games this season and play
every inning.
Manager Bruce Bochy regularly checks
with his right fielder to see if he might need
a break. Nah, Pence just wants to play.
“That’s what I’m supposed to do,” he said
before a 5-1 win against Atlanta on Sunday.
“I get paid to play. I love to play. It’s an
honor. I’ve been fortunate not to have
injuries. I’m grateful to be able to play. ”
The Giants are thrilled to have him for a
full season this year, too.
Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez has
watched Pence burn both his Braves and for-
mer Marlins teams over the years, with
Pence playing for Houston, then
Philadelphia, and now the Giants.
“He comes up with the darndest hits. He
just beats you every time, him and (David)
Eckstein,” Gonzalez said. “He’s not going
to strike out, and you know he’s going to
put the ball in play and something’s going
to happen. Everybody wants to see these
beautiful swings and these beautiful, fluid
motions, but that’s not him, other than he
beats you every time.”
Not that Pence is keeping track of his
numbers against Gonzalez — whose com-
pliment he said he greatly appreciated — or
anybody else.
It is just mid-May, after all.
“I assess today. That’s all that matters,”
Pence said. “Our goal is to get into the play-
offs. It’s a long way away and we have to
stick to the process. Every day’s a new day.
I just try to go out there and compete.”
Pence is hitting .327 with five doubles,
three homers and eight RBIs over his last 12
games going into the opener of a quick two-
game series at Toronto starting Tuesday.
After coming to the Giants in a trade from
the Phillies at last summer’s deadline, and
making a big impact down the stretch and in
the postseason, everybody in the Bay Area
has been eager to see Pence for an entire
He is often quirky and awkward on the
field, yet always thoughtful and polite off it.
Pence quietly sits at his locker alone
before games along a far wall in the club-
house, this past week reading “Sadaharu Oh:
A Zen Way of Baseball,” on the Japanese
Hall of Famer.
“There’s some good stuff,” Pence said.
He rides a motorized scooter to work,
something he knows fascinates fans but he
just considers his mode of transportation to
and from work.
Pence would rather stick to baseball talk,
though he doesn’t do much talking.
“He’s really swinging well. He hasn’t
missed a game, he hasn’t missed an inning,”
Bochy said. “You just have to love the way
he plays the game.”
Pence had lunch with Bonds a couple of
years back, and figures why not keep copy-
ing the former Giants slugger in the way he
holds the bat. They have been in touch from
time to time.

By Terry Bernal
Giants prospect Martin Agosta just keeps
getting better.
Drafted last year in the second round out of
St. Mary’s College in Moraga, Agosta has
shown improvement over each of his 12
professional starts. Last night he continued
to roll at Augusta, working six innings to
earn the win over Braves Low-A affiliate
Rome. With the win, the right-hander
moves into the South Atlantic League lead
with five wins.
Agosta was part of quite a draft class for
the Gaels, who saw four players from last
year’s squad go pro. It was one of the team’s
best showings since a 2002 draft class that
produced supplemental first-rounder Mark
After fellow St. Mary’s junior Patrick
Wisdom was taken as the 52nd overall pick
in the supplementary first round by the
Cardinals, Agosta was already reeling in
excitement. Still, it came as a shock when
the Sacramento native, who grew up a
Giants fan, heard his name called by San
Francisco with the 84th overall pick.
“It was pretty awesome,” Agosta said. “It
was just kind of a shellshock to me. There
was no (telephone) calls the day before or
whatnot. Then all of a sudden it happened.
So it was pretty cool — a humbling experi-
Keeping things in a humbling perspec-
tive seems to come naturally to Agosta,
which perhaps stems from his legendary
namesakes. Martin is a tribute to one of his
father’s heroes: Martin Luther King, Jr. His
middle name Lennon is in honor of rock
icon John Lennon as both his parents are
big fans of The Beatles.
But the humility ceases once Agosta steps
between the lines.
Agosta put himself on the amateur
prospect map at Jesuit High School in
Carmichael, where he posted an 11-1 career
varsity record while helping the Marauders
to back-to-back Sac-Joaquin Section titles.
But when he arrived at St. Mary’s as a fresh-
man in 2010, he was faced with overcoming
that which tasks many a first-year collegiate
pitcher. His pitch repertoire was underdevel-
oped. And at 6-1, he was undersized and lack-
ing Division I strength.
“He was a kid who came out of high school
pretty weak — a skinny right-hander — not
a lot of strength to him,” St. Mary’s interim
manager Gabe Zappin said. “He did well for
a while, then he started to fizzle out. He
started to get tired, as we knew would hap-
pen. But he’s got a great work ethic … and
he’s really had to work hard to get to where
he’s at now with his body and his strength.”
Agosta improved every season while at
St. Mary’s. After debuting as a freshman
reliever in 2010, he quickly cracked the
starting rotation. He posted a disappointing
3-6 record, surviving predominantly as a
two-pitch pitcher. Heading into his sopho-
more season, he began developing a slider
and a changeup, and reaped the rewards by
upping his record to 7-6 with a 2.81 ERA,
while finishing the year as the Gaels’
Sunday starter.
The summer leading into his junior season
is when Agosta turned the corner though.
Catching on with the Bethesda Big Train of
the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League,
he flourished in a relief role, posting a 4-0
record with a 0.98 ERA and two saves en
route to helping the Big Train to the CRCBL
Zappin said Agosta had previously topped
out at 90 mph, but that his velocity spiked
into the mid-90s over his summer with
Bethesda. That, combined with a keen devel-
opment of his secondary pitches, primed the
lithe right-hander for a breakout campaign
in 2012.
“He continued to improve with the
S.F. Giants prospect, Martin Agosta,
pacing South Atlantic League in wins

OAKLAND — Golden State Warriors
coach Mark Jackson placed a prominent
poem by an unknown author in every play-
er’s locker before Game 4 against the San
Antonio Spurs on Sunday that had a simple
Don’t Quit.
Jackson’s gritty Golden State team never
has this season. Neither have the four-time
champion Spurs, led by a group of veterans
who have stood the test of time.
Young or old, it might not matter at this
Both teams are writing a new script in the
playoffs, giving each other all they can
handle in a thrilling Western Conference
semifinal that has had more twists and turns
than anybody ever predicted. The Warriors
and Spurs head into a critical Game 5 tilt in
San Antonio on Tuesday night tied at two
What started as a best-of-seven series is
suddenly a best of three.
“It’s a great place to be,” Jackson said at
Golden State’s practice facility in Oakland
on Monday before the team boarded a flight
to San Antonio. “It’s a
great story. ”
Differing in style and
experience, the Warriors
and Spurs share at least
one common thread:
each has reason to be
confident and concerned
before the next ball is
Both have blown late
leads and lost a game in
overtime that they felt they shouldn’t. Each
has won once on the other’s home floor, and
neither has won consecutive games.
“They’ve already won one here, so there
is no reason to be comfortable here,” Spurs
forward Tim Duncan said back at team head-
quarters in San Antonio. “We’re happy we
have home court and we’re happy to have a
game (in Oakland), but there is no comfort
level. We’re 2-2. This next game is a huge
game for both teams.”
Home court seemed so huge at the start of
the series.
Maybe not anymore.
The Warriors hadn’t won two games
beyond the first round since 1977, when
they pulled even with the Lakers in the con-
ference semifinals through four games. Los
Angeles won in seven.
Even with sharp-shooting Stephen Curry
limping around on a gimpy left ankle, the
upstart Warriors are beaming with confi-
dence. Golden State’s Game 2 win was its
first in San Antonio since Feb. 14, 1997,
ending a streak of 30 straight losses in the
Alamo City, where the Spurs are tough for
anybody to beat.
Game 6 will be in Oakland on Thursday
night. If necessary, a decisive Game 7 would
be back in San Antonio on Sunday. That
means the Warriors have to do twice in two
weeks what took them 16 years to do: win in
San Antonio, which doesn’t seem nearly the
advantage it did days ago.
“It’s almost like we played better there,
and they played better here,” said Curry,
who scored 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting,
including 5 of 10 from 3-point range as a
mostly stationary guard in Golden State’s
97-87 comeback win in overtime Sunday. “I
don’t know what to read into that, but I
think the way that the game flowed
(Sunday), kind of a low-scoring versus
high-scoring early in the series, you just
don’t know what to expect.”
The Warriors wasted a 16-point lead in the
final four minutes of regulation in Game 1,
which the Spurs won in double overtime on
Manu Ginobili’s 3-pointer in the final sec-
onds. After Golden State’s nearly start-to-
finish win in Game 2, San Antonio followed
with a similar performance in its Game 3
victory. Then the Spurs blew an eight-point
lead with five minutes to play in regulation
in Game 4 when it seemed like the Warriors
would wilt.
“There’s not really any momentum in the
playoffs,” said Warriors rookie Harrison
Barnes, who scored a career-high 26 points
to go with 10 rebounds in the game.

ly changed him as far as facing

Originally tabbed as the

junior season, Agosta was forced
to move up the depth chart when
Friday-night starter Mark
Anderson was lost for the season
to injury. Agosta responded in a

Now he’s picking up right where
he left off, as Agosta currently
paces the Giants organization in
wins. Triple-A Fresno pitcher
Chris Heston, High-A San Jose
pitchers Luis Rojas and Ty Blach,
and of course Major League pitch-
er Madison Bumgarner, boast four
wins apiece.
As one of seven pitchers drafted
in the first eight rounds by the
Giants last season, Agosta knows
he’s part of an organization well
stocked with arms. Currently part
of the same pitching rotation that
features 2012 first-round draft pick
Chris Stratton — 3-2 with a 3.03
ERA through six starts — Agosta
was not surprised by his assign-
ment to Low-AAugusta to start the
“All spring training I was in the
Augusta group, and I am more than
happy to be here,” Agosta said.
“Obviously I feel like I can pitch
at San Jose. They’re just heavily
staffed, just like us. We’re very
heavily staffed. That’s why it’s
tough for any guys in extended
spring training to come up here
and join this staff. There’s too
many good pitchers. I’m just
going to do what I do here and
whatever they want to do with me
I’m more than happy with.”

EL SEGUNDO — Although Joe
Thornton and Dustin Brown might
not agree on much else over the
next two weeks, both captains
believe hockey has never been
bigger or better in California,
from the thriving youth game all
the way to their state’s three win-
ning NHL clubs.
The San Jose Sharks and the Los

fourth postseason meeting
between Golden State teams, but
the first beyond the opening
Judging by the rivals’ two
stacked rosters and the series’ high
stakes, everything is in place for a
California classic.
“It’s pretty cool,” Thornton said
Monday before the Sharks’ 45-
minute flight south. “Hockey is
big out here now. You have a lot of
youngsters playing, a lot of older
people, too. Hockey is thriving
out here in the West.”
Starting in the series opener
Tuesday night at Staples Center,
the defense-first Kings and the
skill-laden Sharks will showcase
their contrasting styles in pursuit
of the same goal: Being the
California club in the Western
Conference finals for the eighth
time in 10 years.

SAN FRANCISCO — When Liz DeRouen
needs any kind of health care services,
from diabetes counseling to a dental clean-
ing, she checks into a government-funded
clinic in Northern California’s wine coun-
try that covers all her medical needs.
Her care and the medical services for her
children and grandchildren are paid for as
part of the government’s treaty obliga-
tions to American Indian tribes dating
back nearly a century. But under President
Barack Obama’s health care overhaul,
DeRouen and tens of thousands of others
who identify as Native American will face
a new reality.
They will have to buy their own health
insurance policies or pay a $695 fine from
the Internal Revenue Service unless they
can prove that they are “Indian enough” to
claim one of the few exemptions allowed
under the Affordable Care Act’s mandate
that all Americans carry insurance.
“I’m no less Indian than I was yesterday,
and just because the definition of who is
Indian got changed in the law doesn’t
mean that it’s fair for people to be penal-
ized,” said DeRouen, a former tribal
administrator for the Dry Creek Rancheria
Band of Pomo Indians who lost her mem-
bership amid a leadership dispute in 2009.
“If I suddenly have to pay for my own
health insurance to avoid the fine, I won’t
be able to afford it.”
The Affordable Care Act takes a narrow
view of who is considered an American
Indian and can avoid the tax penalty. It
limits the definition to those who can doc-
ument their membership in one of the
approximately 560 tribes recognized by
the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Yet more than 100 tribes nationwide are
recognized only by states and not the fed-
eral government. Many tribes do not
allow their members to enroll before they
are 18, meaning some school-age children
whose parents are American Indian might
not be considered “Indian” under the defi-
nition in the act.
Other tribal governments have compli-
cated blood-quantum requirements or rules
that all members must live on the reserva-
tion, even though nearly two-thirds of
American Indians and Alaska Natives now
live in metropolitan areas, partly a legacy
of federal relocation and adoption pro-
U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services spokeswoman Erin Shields
acknowledged that the new definition of
Indian in the Affordable Care Act is roiling
emotions on reservations and in native
enclaves across the country but said the
agency is powerless to change it without
an act of Congress.
She said the problem is so new that the
federal government is still seeking to
establish how many people might be
affected, although Indian health advocacy
groups estimate it could be up to 480,000.
In California alone, about 21,000 peo-
ple who currently receive free health care
through Indian clinics are not recognized
as Native American by the federal govern-
ment and would have to pay the penalty,
according to the nonprofit California
Rural Indian Health Board.
“We have and will continue to encourage
a robust dialogue with American Indian
and Alaska Native communities about this
matter, and welcome their input and ideas
for solutions,” Shields said in a statement
to The Associated Press. “Under the law, it
would require a legislative rather than reg-
ulatory change to address this matter. And
as we consider approaches to the best pos-
sible solution, we are eager to work with
The IRS is working with the definition
but has not yet decided how the agency
will verify who qualifies as Indian or
assess the health care penalty on tax
returns, agency spokesman Eric Smith

NEW YORK — The Obama administra-
tion on Monday filed a last-minute appeal
to delay the sale of the morning-after con-
traceptive pill to girls of any age without
a prescription.
The legal paperwork asked the 2nd U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan to
postpone a federal judge’s ruling that
eliminated age limits on the pill while the
government appeals that overall decision.
U.S. District Court Judge Edward
Korman has said politics was behind
efforts by Secretary of Health and Human
Services Kathleen Sebelius to block the
unrestricted sale of the Plan B One-Step
morning-after pill and its generic com-
Last month, he ordered that the lev-
onorgestrel-based emergency contracep-
tives be made available without prescrip-
tion and without age restrictions. He then
denied a request to postpone his ruling
while the government appealed but gave it
until Monday to appeal again.
Government attorneys warned that “sub-
stantial market confusion” could result if
Korman’s ruling was enforced while
appeals are pending. On Monday, lawyers
argued that the district court “plainly
overstepped its authority,” and that they
believe they will win the overall appeal.
Attorneys for the Center for
Reproductive Rights have said in court
papers that every day the ruling is not
enforced is “life-altering” to some
women. They have 10 days to respond to
the most recent government filings, after
which the appeals court will issue a deci-
The appeals court will take up the issue
on May 28 and said the judge’s ruling
remains postponed.
If the government fails, it would clear
the way for over-the-counter sales of the
morning-after pill to younger girls. The
FDAannounced earlier this month that the
contraception could be sold without a pre-
scription to those 15 and older, a decision
Korman said merely sugarcoated the
appeal of his order lifting the age restric-

said. The IRS and U.S. Treasury have sched-
uled a May 29 public hearing on their pro-
posed rules establishing who qualifies for
an exemption from the insurance coverage
Republican Rep. Tom Cole, a member of
the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma and
one of just two federal legislators who are
members of a federally recognized tribe,
said he was aware of the concerns and would
ensure that care for native people was not
compromised as the health overhaul rolls
out. He declined to comment about whether
he would sponsor a bill to address the
“This could lead to some tribal citizens
being required to purchase insurance or face
penalties even though they are covered by
IHS,” he said in a statement to the
Associated Press. “I am watching the situa-
tion closely to ensure that those individu-
als already benefiting from care through
IHS continue to receive it.”
The 2010 Census found that nearly one-
third of the 6.2 million people who self-
identify as American Indian or Alaska
Native lack health insurance and that 28
percent live in poverty.
The Indian Health Service, a division of
U.S. Health and Human Services, oversees
a network of clinics that are required to
serve all patients of Indian ancestry, even
if they cannot document their federal tribal
One of those is the clinic in Santa Rosa,
north of San Francisco, where DeRouen,
49, has been seen since she was a little
girl. Molin Malicay, who directs the
Sonoma County Indian Health Project,
estimates DeRouen is among roughly
2,000 of his patients who would face the
penalty under the Affordable Care Act.
“In the clinics in Central and Northern
California, we see many of us Indians who
are not considered Indians in the eyes of
the federal government because the gov-
ernment itself terminated their tribes,”
Malicay said. “We’re trying to get some of
these people covered for care under
Medicaid, but there is still so much confu-
sion in the pamphlets and videos about
who is Indian (that) it makes it hard to give
Several members of the main tribal advi-
sory group to the Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services said in a recent confer-
ence call with the agency that the defini-
tion contained in the Affordable Care Act
raises concerns that the U.S. could renege
on its obligation to provide all people of
Indian ancestry with free health care.
Budget cuts already are set to reduce basic
federal health programs for Indians by up
to 8 percent.
Some tribal elders who favor tighter
restrictions on who gets to identify as
Native American see it another way.
Mychal Eaglefeathers, a 34-year-old
member of the Northern Cheyenne Nation
in southeastern Montana, said several eld-
ers he spoke with believe that allowing
only members of federally recognized
tribes to avoid the individual insurance
mandate was a positive step, especially as
the already strapped Indian Health Service
clinics are forced to slash services.
“Especially the elders I’ve talked to say
as long as you’re recognized, fine. But if
you’re not federally recognized, people
shouldn’t get nothing,” he said.
Valerie Davidson, a senior director at the
Anchorage-based Alaska Native Tribal
Health Consortium, estimates that about
one-third of the 140,000 Alaska Native
population would have to pay the health
care penalty. That includes her nieces and
nephews from the largely Yup’ik Eskimo
region, comprised of tiny villages only
accessible by plane or boat.
She raises the possibility that native
people would have to get extra documenta-
tion to prove they qualify. People have
historically been able to use their federal
tribal blood-quantum cards to get IHS
health services, but that alone is no longer
enough to qualify for the tax exemption
under the Affordable Care Act, she said.
In addition, many Alaska Natives who
were born after December 1971 are prohib-
ited from enrolling in their families’ tribal
corporations, even if all four grandparents
are Alaska Native, she added.
“Are America’s first people really being
forced yet again to prove our Indian-ness?”
she said through tears on a recent confer-
ence call with federal agencies. “Every sin-
gle day in our own communities we have to
fight to demonstrate that we are still here,
that we do still exist. We should be
believed that what your parents and grand-
parents say you are, you are.”

HAIRCUT (reg.$14)

WASHINGTON — New research
is raising fresh concern that an
age-old treatment for troubled
pregnancies — bed rest — doesn’t
seem to prevent premature birth,
and might even worsen that risk.
Doctors have known for years
that there’s no good evidence that
bed rest offers any benefit for cer-
tain pregnancy complications,
and it can cause side effects in the
mother, not to mention emotional
and financial strain. Yet estimates
suggest nearly 1 in 5 moms-to-be
is told to cut her activity — rang-
ing from quitting work to actually
staying in bed all day — at some
point during pregnancy.
Now, spurred by the latest study,
some specialists are issuing a call
for strict studies to finally settle
the controversy — and until then,
for doctors not to assume that a
prescription to take it easy can’t
“Bed rest is misperceived as an
inexpensive, innocuous, logical
recommendation,” Dr. Joseph
Biggio Jr. of the University of
Alabama at Birmingham wrote in
the latest issue of Obstetrics &
Gynecology, a journal read by
thousands of OB-GYNs.
In a separate review of past stud-
ies that failed to support bed rest, a
trio of obstetricians and ethicists
at the University of North
Carolina, Chapel Hill, went a step
farther: They said it’s not ethical
to keep prescribing bed rest unless
the women are enrolled in a
research study, like they are for
other unproven treatments.
So why is rest prescribed so
often? There aren’t a lot of good
treatments to prevent prematurity
and other problems.
“Patients want you to do some-
thing, and physicians want to do
something,” explained Dr.
Catherine Spong, a maternal-fetal
medicine specialist at the National
Study: Does bed rest
prevent prematurity?

SACRAMENTO — The inves-
tigative arm of the state Senate
reported Monday that it found
nearly two dozen registered sex
offenders serving as substance
abuse counselors in California,
which lacks procedures to screen
them out.
California and Pennsylvania are
the only ones among the nation’s
15 most populous states that con-
duct no criminal background
checks on drug and alcohol coun-
selors, the Senate Office of
Oversight and Outcomes said in a
report. The other states check
counselors’ fingerprints against
criminal records or require appli-
cants to report their own back-
grounds, with penalties if they
The oversight office found 23
registered sex offenders when it
cross-checked the state’s sex
offender registry against a sam-
pling of counselors with unusual
names. The actual number of sex
offenders among the state’s
36,000 registered or certified sub-
stance abuse counselors “is
undoubtedly much higher,” the
report said.
A bill that would have required
licensing and background checks
died in the Legislature in 2010.
The oversight office recommended
that state lawmakers try again to
put a state agency in charge of cre-
dentialing counselors or require
that the current certifying organi-
zations do a better job.
The report cites the case of a Los
Angeles County man who spent
time in prison for molesting two
girls, ages 12 and 15, then became
a counselor in a profession where
the most frequent complaint by
clients is sexual misconduct.
Shortly after becoming a drug
counselor, he was convicted of
drug possession, but he continued
counseling drug addicts after he
was released from prison.
The problem is not limited to
sex offenders. The report also cites
a Santa Rosa woman who had four
theft convictions before she
became a counselor. She then stole
$55,000 from a client.
To start working as a counselor,
an applicant currently must regis-
ter with one of seven private
organizations. The counselor then
has five years to participate in
enough training and education
programs to become certified.
However, the researchers found
some counselors kept treating
clients after their credentials were
revoked, while others ignored edu-
cation and training requirements.
Dozens of counselors simply re-
registered with another organiza-
tion and kept working.
Moreover, California has no
system to weed out counselors
who are convicted of crimes after
they have started working.
Several counselors had drunken
driving or drug convictions while
they were treating clients, while
one was required to attend a class
offered by the same organization
where he worked as a counselor.
The researchers also found that
health care workers who lost their
licenses for misconduct were
allowed to work as counselors.
David Peters, director of exter-
nal affairs for the California
Association of Addiction
Recovery Resources, generally
supported the report’s findings and
recommendations. His organiza-
tion runs the Board of
Certification of Addiction
Specialists, one of the seven
groups that certify counselors.
Many of the report’s recommen-
dations were in the 2010 bill by
Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord,
that died in the Assembly because
of disagreements among profes-
California fails to screen its
substance abuse counselors
Bed rest is a broad term that doesn’t just mean staying in bed all the time — and during that treatment study,
doctors were free to decide if the participants also should restrict their activities,essentially offering a real-world
test of the effects.

“This is about responsibility. It’s not
about walking away from our obligations,”
he said.
Other Democrats are pushing to restore a
wide array of safety-net programs that were
eliminated or reduced during the recession,
including adult dental care for the poor and
mental health care. Doctors, hospitals and
other health providers want the state to end
a 10 percent Medi-Cal reimbursement rate
cut. And children’s and health advocates are
pushing to restore health care services, if
not expanded to all Californians.
“He’s going to be fighting his own
Democrat Legislature because there’s so
much pent-up desire to spend,” said Senate
Minority Leader Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar.
Brown included additional revenue from
Proposition 30, the tax initiative approved
by voters last fall, in the $97.6 billion
general fund budget he announced in
January for the fiscal year that starts July 1.
Since then, personal income taxes, which
are the state’s largest source of revenue,
have come in ahead of the administration’s
Those collections exceeded projections
by nearly $5 billion for the month of
January alone.
In all likelihood, education is expected to
take the largest share of that extra money
under the state’s funding formula, said H.D.
Palmer, the governor’s finance spokesman.
Brown also is reluctant to commit to restor-
ing services because the spike in personal
income tax revenue may be the result of
early withholdings, a one-time phenome-
“We have seen what happens, if you go
back to the dot-com era, when the state
takes one-time revenue and increases ongo-
ing spending,” Palmer said. “We don’t want
to see that movie again. It doesn’t have a
good ending.”
Brown is taking advantage of the surplus
to push for a new K-12 funding formula that
would channel additional money to schools
with high levels of low-income and non-
English speaking children. He also wants
to give school districts more control of the
money they receive from the state.
But the governor is running into resist-
ance from lawmakers who represent more
affluent areas that would not gain as much
under his plan. Democrats in the state
Senate are proposing an alternative that
does not include extra money for school
districts where more than half of students
are low-income.
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell
Steinberg, D-Sacramento, said he supports
more money for children from low-income
families but believes the money should fol-
low the child — even if he or she lives in an
affluent community.
Brown acknowledged last week he has
more negotiating to do on his education
funding change.
“There’s give-and-take here; we don’t
issue dictates,” the governor said. “But the
idea of putting money where the kids have
the biggest challenge in the schools or dis-
tricts that have the biggest challenge
because of the concentration, that’s the
core idea.”
Another task Brown and state lawmakers
have to complete is expanding the state’s
Medicaid program to some 1.4 million low-
income residents as part of California’s
efforts to get ready for the Affordable Care
Act, which takes full effect next year.
Democrats, who control the Assembly
and Senate, disagree on details of the
enrollment and implementation process
while Brown is pushing for savings by
reducing county support for indigent care.
Democratic lawmakers and health advo-
cates fear that even a short delay will cost
California hundreds of millions of dollars
in federal support.
“We want to proceed cautiously, and we
don’t want to bite off any more than we
have to chew,” Brown said last week.
He has pledged to hold the line on spend-
ing and build a rainy day fund. His adminis-
tration has proposed winnowing the state’s
estimated $27.8 billion short-term debt to
$4 billion over the next four years.
Republicans say the governor is not as
fiscally restrained as he seems.
They have been sidelined from budget
talks since voters approved a rule change in
2010 that allows the Legislature to pass a
budget by simple majority vote, rather than
a two-thirds supermajority.
“The governor does talk pretty well about
staying fiscally conservative, and yet he
does talk about high-speed rail and some
other things that are definitely not of that
ilk,” Huff said.
Brown is championing the $68 billion
high-speed rail system despite a decline in
public support and questions over how the
project will be financed.
The governor’s not just feeling pressure
from Democratic lawmakers. Advocates for
children and women are aggressively lob-
bying to restore health care, child care and
other safety-net programs at the Capitol
this week.
A coalition of children’s health and
autism support organizations, for example,
said some children are not getting the treat-
ment they need since the state moved near-
ly 1 million children from the Healthy
Families program to the state’s Medicaid
program, known as Medi-Cal.
Ted Lempert, president of Children Now,
called the issue “a shameful failure” that the
state has known about for months.
Meanwhile, advocates for the poor say
women with children have been dispropor-
tionately hurt by child care cuts. The state
limited welfare assistance to two years
instead of five, while reducing programs
that provide job training, education and job
Continued from page 1
• Education. Brown and budget experts
agree that K-12 spending is expected to take
the greatest share of the extra tax revenue
coming in to the state. Brown is taking the
opportunity to push for a new formula to
better serve low-income and non-English
speaking communities. He also wants to
give school districts more control of the
money they receive from the state. While
Democrats generally support that effort,
lawmakers have proposed an alternative
that does not include extra money for
districts where more than half of students
are low-income.
• Health Care. The governor and state
lawmakers have agreed to expand the
state’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-
Cal, to some 1.4 million low-income
residents as part of California’s efforts to get
ready for the Affordable Care Act. But
Democratic lawmakers and Brown disagree
on details of the enrollment and
implementation process. Brown also is
pushing for budget savings by reducing
county support for indigent care. Health
advocates warn that a short delay could cost
California hundreds of millions of dollars in
federal support.Doctors,hospitals and other
health providers also are pushing the state
to end a 10 percent Medi-Cal
reimbursement rate cut. Advocates want
the state to restore adult dental care.
• Welfare.Advocates for the poor say women
were disproportionately hurt by cuts to
state-subsidized child care and other welfare
programs during the recession. The state
limited welfare assistance to two years
instead of five, while reducing programs
that provide job training,education and job
• Debt. Brown has pledged to hold the line
on spending. His administration has
proposed winnowing the state’s estimated
$27.8 billion short-term debt to $4 billion
over the next four years. Republicans say
the governor has some big-ticket spending
in his budget, as well. They say he is still
pushing for high-speed rail and should do
more to shore up the state’s public
employee pension funds.
Highlights of California’s budget issues
Institutes of Health who co-authored the
latest research.
Spong and colleagues took a closer
look at a study of treatments for women at
risk of premature birth because of an
increasingly diagnosed complication
called a short cervix. Bed rest is a broad
term that doesn’t just mean staying in bed
all the time — and during that treatment
study, doctors were free to decide if the
participants also should restrict their
activities, essentially offering a real-
world test of the effects. The prescrip-
tions ranged from no sexual activity, to
partial or complete work restrictions, to
complete restriction of non-work activity
as well.
Nearly 40 percent of the 646 pregnant
women enrolled in the study were pre-
scribed some type of activity restriction
in the second or third trimester. Most were
told to restrict all three types of activity
— sexual, work and non-work — what’s
usually considered bed rest.
The surprise: Some 37 percent of
women who took the precautions had a
premature baby, compared with just 17
percent of the women who didn’t scale
back, the researchers report in Obstetrics
& Gynecology.
“The data suggests that bed rest does not
prevent preterm birth in this high-risk
population, but it doesn’t definitively
answer that question,” cautioned Spong.
She wants to see a more strict study — the
kind that randomly assigns women to rest
or not — to prove if there’s a difference.
The study also raises questions about
harm, although the women who rested
merely may have been at higher risk for a
preemie. They were older and had some-
what more serious cervical complica-
tions. But the researchers pointed to other
studies that link bed rest to increased
stress and anxiety, both of which are
associated with prematurity and smaller
Plus, bed rest is well known to increase
a mother’s risk of a dangerous blood clot,
as well as side effects including bone and
muscle loss.
Interestingly, the new study found those
who rested were more likely to have pri-
vate insurance, raising questions about
the influence of social rather than medical
The American College of Obstetricians
and Gynecologists says bed rest shouldn’t
be “routinely recommended” for preven-
tion of preterm birth. And women face a
tough decision when their doctors do
bring it up.
Sandy Lutton spent the last 18 weeks of
her pregnancy lying flat in bed, forbidden
even to prop up with her laptop, hoping it
would prevent her twins from being born
too soon.
“I’m not going to sugarcoat it, it was
stressful,” said the McLean, Va., woman,
whose twins, now 2, were born healthy. “I
had a lot of time to sit and worry. ”
Her first son had been born on time, but
she’d lost a second baby due to a weak
cervix. With the twins, her doctors
stitched her cervix closed and recommend-
ed strict bed rest, while making it clear
there was no proof it would make a differ-
ence. Lutton bombarded them with ques-
tions, but eventually decided she had to
try. Ultrasound exams showed her cervix
stayed fine until doctors removed the
stitch and delivered her babies; she even
cheated with a little extra movement on
exam days.
Amid the uncertainty, March of Dimes
medical adviser Dr. Siobhan Dolan said
women shouldn’t hesitate to ask their doc-
tors about the pros and cons of restricting
“Sometimes you feel less regret if you
did something even though it didn’t
change the outcome,” acknowledged
Dolan, who herself has prescribed bed rest
less often in recent years.

primary liaison with the partnership
and offers a law enforcement perspec-
tive on drug and alcohol abuse preven-
tion, North Central San Mateo and
Peninsula Conflict Resolution
Center’s role, Randazzo said.
“The coalition was facilitated by our
partners at the Peninsula Conflict
Resolution Center and we developed
priorities and provided some direction
to a community council — which was
developed as a group of community
members from North Central San
Mateo dedicated to seeing change in
their community in the shape of
reduced drug and alcohol abuse,” Norris
The partnership, or coalition has
three components that ensure the goal
of community health, Malissa Netane,
Prevention Partnership Program asso-
ciate of the Peninsula Conflict
Resolution Center wrote in an email.
“(One) component (of the coalition
is) the partners, which is made up of
city staff, local law enforcement, serv-
ice providers, faith leaders and other
agencies. The (second) component is
the community council ... which are
members of the community that either
live, work, worship or go to school in
North Central San Mateo. The (third)
component is Youth for Change …
that consists of youth from the com-
munity. (They) have developed strate-
gies that they believe will meet the
mission of the coalition and imple-
ment them. The role of the partners is
to support (the council and Youth for
Change) and help with the implemen-
tation by leveraging resources,”
Netane said.
The promotion of a healthy lifestyle
is accomplished through the establish-
ment of neighborhood-based plans of
action, which serve to educate the pub-
lic on the dangers of substance abuse
and consumption of alcohol by youth.
Local merchants are also educated on
the legal restrictions around sales and
advertising to minors and community
education is provided to develop future
leaders to carry this message long
term, Norris said.
The community youth have played a
huge role in giving recommendations
to the coalition on how to better serve
young people and make their efforts
youth-friendly and appropriate,
Netane said.
“I’m very proud of the work that the
coalition has done over the years
because it is not easy to have full-time
jobs, personal obligations and still
want to contribute to the overall
health of the NCSM community, ”
Netane said.
At a recent meeting in the San Mateo
High School library with members of
an after-school group, students from
the high school discussed the strate-
gies they were using to communicate
with workers.
“We want to help our community in
general and we want to make a future
for us. ... We want to make a difference
in our community, we are RBST, which
stands for Responsible Beverage
Service Training,” Ateliano Naufahu
The students at the meeting first got
involved in the program because they
were part of a PCRC-sponsored youth
group, Naufahu said.
“I honestly think that (RBST) is use-
ful because the many stores that we
approach are (now) aware of this pro-
gram ... especially for preventing sell-
ing alcohol to minors, because a lot of
minors have been hurt and affected in
our community,” said Finau Falesfa.
The kids that were part of an after-
school group were first approached by
Evelia Chairez, community facilitator
for PCRC, who suggested that they
join Youth for Change to give back to
their community.
“We’re giving free training to mer-
chants to help them identify IDs that
are fake and it is just to give them more
knowledge about ... not giving alco-
hol to underage (customers), we’re
helping them by spreading the word,”
Falesfa said.

mobile operators, Trustee Dave
Mandelkern explained previously.
Such a change could also allow for the
station to be auctioned off, possibly
bringing in more than the most recent
bids. The actual monetary benefit to
the district was not disclosed.
The LocusPoint Networks offer
included subsidizing the station opera-
tions in return for a portion of the pro-
ceeds from a successful auction,
according to the staff report written by
Jan Roecks, interim dean of business,
workforce and athletics at Cañada
College. Roecks wrote that the compa-
ny’s funding was confirmed through
interaction with the bidder’s bank.
Also, LocusPoint Networks provided
strategies and answers on how to han-
dle issues like: delays in the auction
proceedings or the auction being can-
Media Alliance, a media advocacy
nonprofit, takes issue with the sale and
possible buyer.
“LocusPoint Networks is owned by
the Blackstone Group, one of the
largest banking/hedge fund collabora-
tives in the world,” Media Alliance
representatives said in a press release.
This is the district’s second attempt
at getting bids to sell the station. Six
bids were received in February 2012.
Negotiations with the two responsive
highest bidders were not successful. As
a result, the board rejected all bids in
October and decided to give it another
go. More recently, four bids were
received from KMTP TV 32, Oriental
Culture and Media Center of Southern
California, LocusPoint Networks and
Public TV Financing. Roecks’ evalua-
tion questioned whether Oriental
Culture and Media Center of Southern
California could meet the localism and
ownership requirements and the fund-
ing from Public TV Financing and
KMTP TV 32, also known as the
Minority Television Project.
KCSM-TV began operating in 1964
at its current location at the College of
San Mateo. The non-commercial sta-
tion broadcasts a variety of programs
including television courses, the num-
bers for which have dropped in recent
years in favor of online classes. The
district will be keeping its radio sta-
tion, KCSM.
The board meets 6 p.m. Wednesday,
May 15 at the District Office, 3401

in their advertisements that they are not

Search ends in Bangladesh;
death toll put at 1,127
SAVAR, Bangladesh — Several of the
biggest Western retailers embraced a plan
that would require them to pay for factory
improvements in Bangladesh as the three-
week search for victims of the worst gar-
ment-industry disaster in history ended
Monday with the death toll at a staggering
1, 127.
Bangladesh’s government also agreed to
allow garment workers to form unions with-
out permission from factory owners. That
decision came a day after it announced a
plan to raise the minimum wage in the

Plaza factory building April 24 focused

MEXICO CITY— Two waiters at a Mexico
City bar will face homicide and robbery
charges in the beating death of Malcolm X’s
grandson Malcolm Shabazz, authorities
said Monday.
Prosecutors said police were seeking at
least two other people believed to have par-

beaten early Thursday in a dispute over a
$1,200 bar bill.
Prosecutor Rodolfo Fernando Rios said
bar employees David Hernandez Cruz and

next week, perhaps the most famous sym-
bol of Superstorm Sandy’s devastation at
the Jersey shore will be gone.
Demolition work is to start Tuesday on
the remnants of the Jet Star, the roller coast-
er that plunged off an amusement pier in
Seaside Heights during the Oct. 29 storm.
It should take about four days to remove
the ride, said Maria Mastoris, a spokes-
woman for Casino Pier.
“We are thrilled about this,” she said.
“We’ve been waiting for this for a long time.
It shows we’re making progress and that
we’ll be open and ready for the summer. ”
Images of the coaster in the water have
appeared hundreds of times in the media and
been used to help sell memorabilia to raise
money for storm victims. The coaster is fea-
tured on a popular car magnet sold by one of
the many charities raising money.
It also continues to draw large crowds to
the Seaside Heights boardwalk, which
remains under reconstruction.
Casino Pier has hired Weeks Marine, an
experienced maritime contractor, to do the

piece by piece and taking it away, Mastoris
said. “They’re going to take a crane around
and take pieces off.”
Works crews will operate around the clock
until the last of the coaster has been

PHILADELPHIA — An abortion
doctor was convicted Monday of
first-degree murder and could face
execution in the deaths of three
babies who were delivered alive
and then killed with scissors at his
grimy, “house of horrors” clinic.
In a case that became a grisly
flashpoint in the nation’s abortion
debate, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72,
was also found guilty of involun-
tary manslaughter in the overdose
death of an abortion patient. He
was cleared in the death of a fourth
baby, who prosecutors say let out
a whimper before the doctor cut the
spinal cord.
Gosnell, who portrayed himself
as an advocate for poor and desper-
ate women in an impoverished
West Philadelphia neighborhood,
appeared hopeful before the ver-
dict was read and calm afterward.
The jury reached its verdict on
its 10th day of deliberations. It
will return May 21 to hear evi-
dence on whether Gosnell should
get the death penalty.
Gosnell attorney Jack
McMahon called it a “very difficult
case” to defend and said there was
“a little bit of feeling on the
defense part of what salmon must
feel swimming upstream.”
“There’s a lot of emotion. You
have the baby factor, which is a
big problem. The media has been
overwhelmingly against him,” he
said. But noting that Gosnell was
cleared on some of the charges,
McMahon said the jurors “obvi-
ously took their
job seriously. ”
Pr os e c ut or s
looked elated,
but District
Attorney Seth
W i l l i a m s
declined com-
ment until after
the sentencing
phase, citing a
gag order.
Former clinic employees testi-
fied that Gosnell routinely per-
formed illegal abortions past
Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit,
that he delivered babies who were
still moving, whimpering or
breathing, and that he and his
assistants dispatched the new-
borns by “snipping” their spines,
as he referred to it.
“Are you human?” prosecutor Ed
Cameron snarled during closing
arguments. “To med these women
up and stick knives in the backs of
Gosnell was also convicted of
infanticide, racketeering and more
than 200 counts of violating
Pennsylvania’s abortion laws by
performing third-term abortions
or failing to counsel women 24
hours in advance.
The courtroom was locked for
more than 30 minutes as the ver-
dicts were read and the jurors
polled one by one.
His co-defendant, former clinic
employee Eileen O’Neill, was con-
victed of taking part in a corrupt
organization and illegally billing
for her services as if she were a
licensed doctor.
Abortion doctor guilty
in three babies’ deaths

TRIPOLI, Libya — Adeadly car
bomb exploded Monday near a
hospital in a busy area packed
with civilians in the eastern
Libyan city of Benghazi,
destroying part of the facility,
officials said.
Officials gave conflicting casu-
alty figures, with death tolls
ranging from three to 10 in the
chaotic aftermath of the attack.
Benghazi, which was the birth-
place of the revolution that led to
the ouster of dictator Moammar
Gadhafi, has suffered a series of
assassinations and other attacks,
including the Sept. 11 assaults
on the U.S. diplomatic mission
that killed Ambassador Chris
Stevens and three other
The oil-rich North African
nation is still largely dominated
by militias, many including
fighters who battled Gadhafi’s
forces during the 2011 civil war,
and many attacks are blamed on
them as infighting is rampant in
the battle for control.
But witnesses and analysts said
Monday’s explosion stood out
because it struck during the day in
a crowded area, putting civilians
at risk.
“The bombing is significant in
that it is the first that targets
civilians,” Frederic Wehrey of
the Carnegie Endowment for
International Peace said in an
“The bombing is going to put
renewed pressure on an already
embattled Ministry of Interior to
reign in the revolutionary
brigades,” he added, referring to
The blast took place on Beirut
Street, a residential and shop-
ping area in Libya’s second-
largest city and quickly drew pro-
testers to the streets to call for
stronger security measures. Other
vehicles on the street were
destroyed, and the windows of
nearby buildings were shattered.
