Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula

Jesusa Ursonal Tatad’s husband,
whom she killed with boiling
water out of jealousy and anger,
died “for no good reason, no good
reason at all,” a judge said before
sentencing the Daly City woman
to 16 years to life in prison for
second-degree murder.
Tatad, dressed in orange jail
clothes and often dabbing her eyes
during Friday’s hearing, received
the maximum allowed under the
terms of a plea deal negotiated in
April although the victim’s sister
asked a judge to
hand down life
in prison with-
out the possi-
bility of parole
for killing
Ronie Tatad.

scalding and

A group called Respect Life
South San Francisco filed an
appeal Friday against the
Planning Commission’s recent
approval to open a Planned
Parenthood downtown.
The appeal, filed on the last day
one would be accepted, means the
topic will go before the City
Council, said City Clerk Krista
Martinelli. The council meeting
date has yet to be set but will most
likely be held in June.
On May 2, the Planning
Commission approved the appli-
cation to allow Planned
Parenthood Mar Monte to open at
435 Grand Ave. — an application
which staff recommended be
approved — saying the permit was
about land use not personal opin-
ions. Since it met land use require-
ments, the proposed three-story
clinic was approved in a 6-1 split
vote with Commission Vice Chair
Carlos Martin dissenting.
The evening meet drew 67
speakers, many of whom opposed
the plan but not necessarily for
the same reasons. A number of
opponents cited religious beliefs
while others pointed to disap-
proving of the organization’s
offering of abortions. Still others
opposed the location, rather than
the organization, due to the public
protests they assumed would fol-
low. On the other hand, speakers
and commissioners pointed out
that the discussion was not one of
morality but rather of city regula-
tions, which staff said the propos-
al met.

After volunteering in African refugee
camps with the Peace Corps, Martha Ryan
realized she could do more to help others by
becoming a nurse.
While studying back in the Bay Area,
Ryan worked at a homeless shelter helping
pregnant women. She was astonished at the
lack of support and care offered to these
women. Ryan recalled methods used in
Africa to create female leaders who could
assist other women in their health care. If it
worked there, why not here? She applied for
a small grant, $52,000, which allowed three
people to offer support for women in San
Francisco. That small grant was the birth of
the Homeless Prenatal Program, a San
Francisco-based nonprofit started in 1989,
which today has a $6.1 million operating
budget and offers a variety of services to
more than 3,500 families annually. Martha
Ryan, whose family calls San Mateo home,
was among the CNN Heroes recently hon-
ored for their selfless, creative efforts to
help others.
Ryan, a mother of two, cites her own
mother, Katherine Ryan, as an inspiration
and personal hero in her work. Katherine
Ryan doesn’t understand
what the fuss is about. The
mother of 13 helped with
the Red Cross in Japan
after World War II, where
she met her husband.
Many of their children
were born and raised
“My mother was always
a volunteer. During the
Vietnam War, we lived in Japan and she
would help out by visiting the sick. It was
one of the hardest things she ever did,”
Martha Ryan said. “Today my mom contin-
ues to work, leading our family business, a
huge financial and volunteer supporter of
HPP. Her example led the way, and her com-
mitment to doing unto others, even with 13
children to raise, inspires me to this day. ”
Ryan, third in the lineup of the 13 kids,
shared her story this week along with a few
family members at the business her parents
started, Top 1 Oil, in San Mateo. Siblings
Tim and Bridget were on hand to discuss how
their sister wasn’t the best student growing
up and was often taking cabs to school —
apparently a very affordable thing to do in
Japan at the time. Even Katherine Ryan said
she was surprised when Martha Ryan started
finding her rhythm after serving in the
Peace Corps.
“For this one, the glass is always half
full,” Tim Ryan, the oldest of the kids, said
pointing to his sister.
But Martha Ryan was quick to say her
work is actually quite selfish. She enjoyed
working in other countries and helping oth-
ers. In terms of who was getting more out of
the work, Martha Ryan always felt like she
was getting more than she was giving. To
date, Martha Ryan has worked in Ethiopia,
Somalia, Uganda and Sudan.
She would often travel between Africa and
the Bay Area for six-month periods, work-
ing at San Francisco General Hospital when
home. Eventually, Ryan became a nurse
practitioner. Her work in Bay Area homeless
shelters served as the inspiration for some-
thing she never imagined — the nonprofit
that now has 74 staffers, half of whom were
clients or have been in similar situations as
the clients. That’s important to Martha
Ryan, who has enjoyed stepping back and
allowing people the opportunity to excel.
“Nobody changes your life,” she said,
adding that people still need support.
That’s the goal of the organization which

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)

Weight has been a priority for
Tiffany Liang since her sopho-
more year at Mills High School.
The petite teen wasn’t worried
about a few vanity pounds or even
sharing what the scale read. After
joining the wrestling team soph-
omore year, weight became
important. At first, it was about
gaining weight. Later it was about
losing it. This year, Liang was the
only girl on the varsity team. She
was also the team captain.
“I like the competition,” she
said of the sport, which isn’t tra-
ditionally filled with girls. “You
always have to be thinking. It’s a
big mental challenge.”
Liang isn’t the loudest person
and her petite build doesn’t make
her appear to be a threat either.
Her choice to join the wrestling
team came with some negative
feedback but lots of positive sup-
port from the guys on her team
who, Liang said with a smile,
knew she could beat them up.
“Ms. Liang is one of the most
dedicated athletes I have had the
pleasure of working with,” said
wrestling coach James
McConchie. “She shows up, gives
100 percent, does not complain
and communicates with the coach-
es about her personal situation.
She shows a level of integrity that
is well beyond her age. She is a
bright individual and very hum-
Liang grew up in Daly City until
first grade, when the family moved
to Millbrae. She enrolled in
Meadows Elementary School.
Liang was always a bit quiet. She
recalled the first time she met a
friend in elementary school. The
girl approached Liang twice to say
“hello,” but she never responded.
As a child, her mother put Liang
into ballet — but she didn’t move.
The characteristic of not
responding stopped in fifth grade
when Liang joined a swim club in
the Bayview District. She liked
doing all four strokes, the individ-
ual medley. At Mills High School,
Liang added the school’s swim
team to her athletic workload. She
became the junior varsity champi-
on of the team sophomore year.
While excelling at swimming,
Liang said the challenge had got-
ten repetitive. She was looking
for something new.
Her older brother Timothy and a
friend were in wrestling. Liang
decided to give the sport a try.
She’s found success in the con-
stant challenges of the mental
sport for which she wrestled in the
98 pound weight class for girls
and 103/106 for boys. Liang
earned the Unsung Hero Award
from her teammates and led their
team this year. She also became
the first girl from Mills to medal
through Central Coast Section.
On the side, Liang has taken
time to be involved on campus in
clubs like Interact and Tech Bridge
— both service-based groups.
Looking ahead, Liang doesn’t
plan to wrestle in college.
Instead, she wants to study aero-
space engineering and technolo-
gy at Purdue University with a
hope to design airplanes — like
her grandfather.

A sale of a home on the “UN“market can work for all parties interested in facilitating
a transaction. When a home is starting the preparation process, many times an agent will post a
“Coming Soon” sign on the property to start the pre-marketing of the home.
When this happens, there is the potential a buyer, neighbor, friend or buyer’s agent
will notice the sign. They might just have the perfect buyer for the home and could also be able
to offer a price and terms that might make the seller consider an “UN“market sale.
The buyer might also be willing to offer a price could be considered potentially
higher than expected market value. In a hot market, if the buyer can eliminate the possibility of
having to compete with other bidders for the home, it can be worth paying a little more. This
also would save the seller some preparation time and costs as well as knowing a certain sale
price for the home, so they could begin looking for their next home. When all of this comes

George J. Blondino
September 21, 1913 – May 8, 2013
Resident of Carmichael, CA
George J. Blondino – Beloved husband of
Lillian Blondino his wife of 72 years who
passed in 2008, beloved father of George
S. Blondino of El Dorado Hills and Doreen
Foote of Dunnigan, California, and loving
father-in-law of Leona V. Blondino and
Richard Foote. He was the loving grandfather
to Denise Urdahl, Annette Foote, Dennis
Foote, Michael Blondino, Vicki Blondino,
Stacie Enns, and 14 great grandchildren and
4 great-great grandchildren. George was a
native of San Francisco and lived in Redwood City for over 53 years before moving
to Carmichael, California where he resided at Carmichael Oaks an Assisted Living
facility. George’s move to Carmichael Oaks was so that he could be close to a
convalescent facility where he was able to visit and care for his wife. His daily
visit to his wife, who was suffering from dementia, was inspirational to the entire
Blondino family.
He was a kind, gentle man, who worked hard his entire life to support his young
family, especially during the Depression years by taking on any job he could
find. The struggled ended when he was employed by the City and County of San
Francisco where he retired at the age of 59. He also worked as a personal trainer
on a part time basis at Dennis Nelson’s Health Club in Redwood City. He spent
his retirement years traveling with his wife Lillian visiting many tourist locations
in the Western United States, and family in Friday Harbor, Washington. They’re
favorite vacation spot was to the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii.
Remembering George: “So when you think of his smile, and his laugh, especially
after a good story, may you be reminded of all the good times we shared with him.
When you talk about the kind of person he was, you will feel even prouder than ever.
And when you hear all the stories people tell about him, it will bring you an even
richer understanding of how much he meant to everyone lucky enough to know him.”
As a remembrance to George his family wishes that any donations in his memory be
made to The George Blondino Youth Baseball Fund, C/O the Silicon Valley Community
Foundation, 2440 West El Camino Real, Suite 300, Mountain View, California, 94040-

A Daly City man whose car crashed 300
feet down an embankment off Skyline
Boulevard and allegedly
left his seriously injured
passenger inside the
vehicle for several hours
before returning and try-
ing to move the man into
the driver’s seat before
authorities arrived will
stand trial for felony
drunk driving and driving
on a suspended license.
Henock Admassu, 24,
has pleaded not guilty to the charges but was
held to answer. He was not ordered to stand
trial for fleeing the scene of an accident and
returns to Superior Court May 31.
The odd chain of events began just before
midnight Dec. 10, 2012 when Admassu
called 911 to say he was involved in an acci-
dent but disoriented and unclear where he left
the vehicle containing an injured passenger.
About 45 minutes later, he arrived at his sis-
ter’s home and awoke her with the same
story. They reportedly spent the next few
hours driving around looking for the spot
and called 911 again around 4 a.m. to report
the vehicle’s location.
When Daly City police and the California
Highway Patrol arrived, they spotted
Admassu pulling the passenger from a
Dodge Charger and pushing him back into
the driver’s side seat. The crash tied up the
road while emergency crews worked to free
the injured man who was taken to San
Francisco General Hospital with serious
Admassu was uninjured in the crash and,
seven hours after, his blood alcohol level was
.05. Admassu has one prior conviction for
driving while intoxicated.
He remains free from custody on
$150,000 bail.
Summer trial in
fatal pedestrian crash
The driver whose out-of-control car sent a
concrete garbage can flying into a 67-year-
old San Mateo pedestrian who died will
stand trial in July.
Josue Vicente Lopez,
26, has pleaded not
guilty to gross vehicular
manslaughter, felony
hit-and-run and misde-
meanor child endanger-
ment connected to the
Nov. 24, 2012 death of
Reynaldo Aguiniga.
After confirming that
plea in Superior Court, he was scheduled for
jury trial July 15 following a pretrial con-
ference June 14.
The accident happened in the 1700 block
of South Delaware Street after the driver of a
green 1994 Chevrolet Camaro later identi-
fied as Lopez lost control of the vehicle
while speeding out of the Kmart parking lot.
The car reportedly jumped the curb, went
onto the sidewalk and into a cement garbage
container that dislodged and hit Aguiniga.
Authorities say Lopez allegedly checked on
Aguiniga after the crash but fled the scene in
his car with his 5-year-old child.
Responding police officers found Aguiniga
pinned between the can and tree near a bus
stop. Aguiniga later died at the hospital.
Lopez remains in custody on $250,000

SACRAMENTO — The state’s inde-
pendent budget analyst said Friday that
California will take in $3.2 billion
more in tax revenue than Gov. Jerry
Brown estimated, providing
Democratic lawmakers an argument to
funnel more money into state pro-
grams and setting up a spending show-
down with the administration.
The Legislative Analyst’s Office
released its assessment of Brown’s
revenue and spending plan just days
after the governor’s budget update for
the fiscal year starting July 1. It said
the administration’s figures do not
reflect the improving economy,
including higher
capital gains from
stock sales.
“We do not agree
with the administra-
tion’s view that
there has been a sig-
nificant dimming of
the state’s near-term
e c o n o m i c
prospects,” the ana-
lyst wrote.
Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-
Los Angeles, said the new revenue
number should not be interpreted “as
an automatic green light to increase
spending” and noted that paying down
debt and building a reserve fund should
be a priority.
But Perez also said there is substan-
tial pressure from Democratic lawmak-
ers and advocates to restore programs
that were reduced or eliminated during
the recession when the state dealt with
multibillion dollar deficits year after
Brown proposed a $96.4 billion
spending plan for the coming fiscal
year on Tuesday. He wants to funnel

The governor had projected that the

WASHINGTON — President Barack
Obama’s budget would trim projected
federal deficits by $1.1 trillion over
the coming decade, using nearly $6 in
higher revenues for every $1 in
reduced spending to achieve it,
Congress’ nonpartisan budget analyst
said Friday.
After four straight years of annual
shortfalls exceeding $1 trillion, the
Congressional Budget Office report
said Obama’s budget would push this
year’s deficit down to $669 billion.
Annual shortfalls would shrink slowly
to $399 billion in
2017 before rising
again, the report
The report did lit-
tle to resolve the
budget impasse
between Obama and
c o n g r e s s i o n a l
Republicans. The
White House wants
to reduce deficits further with a mix of
tax increases and spending cuts, while
Republicans have said they won’t con-
sider higher taxes.
Chiefly because of spending increas-
es his budget proposes, Obama’s fiscal
plan would make next year’s deficit
$115 billion higher than the $560 bil-
lion shortfall that the budget office
estimates for 2014 without the presi-
dent’s policies. Republicans criticized
that and contrasted the $542 billion
deficit Obama’s budget would leave in
2023 with the spending plan approved
by the GOP-run House, which relies on
deep spending cuts to achieve balance
by that year.
“This new report shows that the
president’s budget doesn’t come close
to solving the problem” despite pro-
posing tax increases, House Budget
Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-
Wis., said in a statement.

into Ayres case needed
Finally, Dr. Ayres pleaded no con-
test to eight counts of child molesta-
tion (“Ayres molestation trial ends”
in the May 17 edition of the Daily
Journal). The defendant must serve
22 years or less. Unfortunately, this
case has been a fiasco since at least
1988 when the county of San Mateo
and the San Mateo Police
Department were alerted to Dr. Ayres’
alleged behavior against children; it
was then that the county and its resi-
dents should have circled wagons
around the victim[s].
The misadventures in the Dr.
Ayres, 81, case lies in the poor
investigations by law enforcement,
child protective services, the court,
Probation Department and the
District Attorney’s Office. The vic-

tions started, and we realized the

flawed with many uninvestigated
omissions, including a paper trail of

California water shortage over?
It appears that the drought and
water shortage Californians have
faced is apparently over. Case in
point. The new median on El Camino
Real in front of the Hillsdale
Shopping Center has all sorts of
shrubs, plants and trees with a new
irrigation system installed to keep
them watered and fresh to grow.
Surely, if we are facing a drought and
water shortage, it would be com-
pletely foolish and irresponsible to
proceed with a project such as that
and waste precious water. Or as a
2009 report titled “The Future is
Now” compiled for the California
Energy Commission stated on page
26, irrigation in California’s Central
Valley was masking climate change.
So, irrigating the shrubs, plants and
trees on El Camino Real would help
mask climate change in the
Peninsula. Makes you wonder, does-
n’t it?

Letters to the editor
The Kansas City Star
he Internal Revenue Service’s
targeting of conservative
groups for extra scrutiny so far
appears to be a case of bureaucrats run
amok and leadership failing to rein
them in.
If that holds true, the overreach is
not a redux of the 1970s, when
President Richard Nixon’s administra-
tion ordered the IRS to target his per-
ceived enemies. The furor among con-
servative groups notwithstanding,
nothing yet indicates that President
Barack Obama or anyone in the White
House knew what was going on in the
Cincinnati IRS offices, where applica-
tions from politically oriented groups
seeking tax-exempt status had been
sent for review.
Employees there struggled to devise
a test to flag blatantly political
organizations. Unfortunately, their
methods were spectacularly wrong.
The employees should have known
better, and IRS leaders should have
handled the rogue practices much
more firmly.
Lois Lerner, director of the IRS
division that oversees tax-exempt
groups, acknowledged in advance of
news expose and an inspector gener-
al’s report that workers had improper-
ly singled out groups with “tea party”
or “patriot” in their names.
For the IRS to single out groups of
any political stripe is disastrous for
public trust. The IRS must be inde-
pendent of politics. Employees at any
level who don’t understand that
should be fired.
It is vital to come up with an
acceptable protocol for evaluating
groups seeking 501(c)(4) status,
meaning they may participate in poli-
tics as long as social welfare remains
their primary focus. These groups
have proliferated since the U.S.
Supreme Court’s regrettable 2010
Citizens United ruling, which allows

resources to maintain what has come to

At the same time we work to protect and maintain our
economic health so too do we need to invest in it to grow.
The city has made a commitment to balance our budget.
Toward that end, the council has tasked staff to sharpen
their pencils and make effective cuts that reduce the deficit
but do not affect the quality of life residents have come to
enjoy. Our staff has accepted the challenge and has provid-

Commerce will roll out new initiatives to support Foster
City and its vision for an enhanced future. These initia-
tives will challenge our way of thinking and provoke
healthy debate as to where and how money should be
invested to grow our revenue and enhance our quality of
As families, we make choices we believe will enhance
that quality of life and our children’s futures. Each of us
invests in our communities in various and differing ways.
We start simply by choosing the best we can provide and
sustain to ensure our children will have the brightest
future possible. Foster City is one such decision. Each of
us has made a choice to invest in our city by simply
choosing to live in it. As a result, the city has prospered
and its real estate is at a premium. Foster City enjoys rec-
ognized schools and outstanding parks and open spaces.
Our police and fire professionals provide top-quality serv-
ice and protection.
The city has quietly built an outstanding business com-
munity and is home to top-tier corporations like Visa and
Gilead Sciences reaffirming that Foster City is a great
place to do business. There is no doubt there is an intrin-
sic link between the health and vibrancy of our business
community and the vitality of our experience as residents.
Small business is crucial to our economic health. Our
commercial centers and small businesses need our sup-
port. We must promote their opportunities and not hinder
them with outdated proscriptions. We need to reevaluate
the need for our commercial and residential centers and
modify our ordinances to make them current and to allow
for the flexibility to reach the goals of future demands.
Foster City has changed in the last 40 years and it is time
we embrace today for our future efforts.
One of our biggest accomplishments continues to be
that every year at this time we open our doors even wider
to welcome the surrounding communities to join us in cel-
ebrating ours.
One of the premier events on the Peninsula is the
Annual Arts and Wine Festival being held June 1-2. More
than 30,000 visitors enjoy two days of family entertain-
On July 4, the city invites everyone to come and cele-
brate in Leo Ryan Park with an outstanding fireworks dis-
play. And this year, in addition to the Fourth of July
Celebration and the Summer Concert Series (July 12-Aug.
16 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. each Friday), a new event is intro-
duced to the community — Neighbor Nights (July 3, 17
and 31).
We as a city continue to deliver on expectations by
building community through a series of events that bring
our residents together to enjoy our open spaces. These
events are a crucial part of the overall dynamic of our city.
Acommunity is built on top of many interdependent
pillars. Each plays a role in the overall health of the
financial ecosystem that allows a city to continue to pros-
per. While we continue to focus on hard dollars we will
also work to better understand the influence and impact of
soft dollars. The question that remains is what areas do we
need to invest in and to what degree to maintain the quali-
ty of life that our residents expect?

NEW YORK — Encouraging news
about the U.S. economy extended the
stock market’s rally Friday.
Small-company stocks rose the
most, a sign that investors are taking
on more risk. Two companies soared
in their stock-market debuts in the
latest indication that the market for
initial public offerings is reviving.
Agauge of future economic activity
rose more than analysts had expected,
as did a measure of consumer confi-
dence, adding to evidence that the
economy is steadily recovering.
Stocks closed higher for a fourth
straight week. Indexes are at record
levels after surging this year on opti-
mism about the economy and record
corporate earnings. The market is
also being supported by ongoing
stimulus from the Federal Reserve,
which is keeping long-term borrow-
ing costs at historically low levels.
“This slow but relatively steady
growth, that keeps inflation in check
and keeps interest rates low, is actual-
ly a pretty healthy environment for
the stock market,” said Liz Ann
Sonders, chief investment strategist
at Charles Schwab & Co. “Right now
we are very optimistic.”
General Motors rose $1.03, or
3. 2 per cent , t o $33. 42. The
automaker’s stock is trading above
the $33 price of its November,
2010 initial public offering for the
first time in two years.
Northrop Grumman gained $3.17,
or 3.2 percent, to $82.19 after the
defense contractor said its board
approved the repurchase of another $4
billion in stock, and that it plans to
buy back a quarter of its outstanding
shares by the end of 2015.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 121.18 points, or 0.8 percent, to
15,354.40. The index gained 1.6 per-
cent for the week and is up 17.2 per-
cent for the year.
The index started higher, then drift-
ed through the rest of the morning.
The index added to its gains in the
afternoon, climbing about 70 points
in the last two hours of the day.
The Standard & Poor’ 500 index
rose 15.65 points, or 1 percent, to
1,666.12. The gauge is up 2 percent
this week and has gained 16.8 percent
this year.
After some lackluster reports on the
economy Thursday, including slow-
ing manufacturing and an increase in
applications for unemployment bene-
fits, Friday’s reports were a tonic for

The University of Michigan’s pre-
liminary survey of consumer confi-
dence climbed to 83.7. Economists

investors waiting for a drop in prices

back,” Anderson said. “Every client
asks me, ‘When are we getting a pull-
back?’ With so many people waiting
for it, and pouncing on it when it
arrives, it’s over so quickly. ”
As well as giving stocks a lift, the
positive economic reports also
pushed government bond yields high-
er. The yield on the 10-year Treasury
rose to 1.96 percent from 1.88 per-
cent Thursday as investors favored
riskier assets.

NEWYORK — It was supposed to be our
IPO, the people’s public offering.
Facebook, the brainchild of a young CEO
who sauntered into Wall Street meetings in
a hoodie, was going to be bigger than
Amazon, bigger than McDonald’s, bigger
than Coca-Cola. And it was all made possi-
ble by our friendships, photos and family
Then came the IPO, and it flopped.
Facebook’s stock finished its first day of
trading just 23 cents higher than its $38
IPO price. It hasn’t been that high since.
Even amid the hype and excitement sur-
rounding Facebook’s May 18 stock market
debut a year ago, there were looming
doubts. Investors won-
dered whether the social
network could increase
advertising revenue with-
out alienating users,
especially those using
smartphones and tablet
The worries intensified
just days before the IPO
when General Motors
said it would stop paying
for advertisements on the site. The symbol-
ic exit cast a shroud over Facebook that still
exists. Facebook’s market value is $63 bil-
lion, some two-thirds of what it was the
morning it first began trading. At around
$27 per share, the company’s stock is down
roughly 30 percent from its IPO price.
Meanwhile, the Standard & Poor’s 500
index is up 27 percent over the same period.
Despite its disappointing stock market
performance, the company has delivered
strong financial results. Net income
increased 7 percent to $219 million in the
most recent quarter, compared with the pre-
vious year, and revenue was up 38 percent to
$1.46 billion.
The world’s biggest online social net-
work has also kept growing to 1.1 billion
users. Some 665 million people check in
every day to share photos, comment on
news articles and play games. Millions of
people around the world who don’t own a
computer use Facebook, in Malawi,
Malaysia and Martinique.
And much has changed at Facebook in a
year. The company’s executives and engi-
neers have quietly addressed the very doubts
that dogged the company for so long.
Facebook began showing mobile advertise-
ments for the first time just after the IPO. It
launched a search feature in January and
unveiled a branded Facebook smartphone in
April. The company also introduced ways
for advertisers to gauge the effectiveness of
their ads.
Even GM has returned as a paying adver-
Now, Facebook is looking to its next
challenge: convincing big brand-name con-
sumer companies that advertisements on a
social network are as important — and as
effective — as television spots.

improve the content experience over time,”
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told ana-
lysts recently. “And if we continue making
progress on this, then one day we can get

SACRAMENTO — California’s unem-
ployment rate has fallen to its lowest level
in 4 1/2 years as the state experienced one
of the sharpest drops in joblessness nation-
wide, the state Employment Development
Department reported Friday.
Unemployment fell to 9 percent in April,
the lowest point since November 2008,
nearly a year after the recession began. The
decrease of 0.4 percentage points from the
previous month follows two smaller dips
and several months when the rate hovered at
9.8 percent.
New York and South Carolina also saw
their jobless rates fall by 0.4 percentage
points. California has added more than
273,000 jobs since April 2012, including a
net gain of 10,400 nonfarm jobs in April.
Monthly job gains were down from March
when the state added 25,500 jobs.
The construction industry has posted
some of the largest gains, adding 7,400
jobs last month and 44,800 positions dur-
ing the past year.
Manufacturing, trade, hospitality, finan-
cial activities, and educational and health
services also gained jobs.
Among the sectors reporting losses were
professional and business services, infor-
mation and government. Professional serv-
ices generally have added jobs over the past
year, adding 71,500 positions.
Nearly 1.7 million Californians remain
unemployed, down 300,000 from April
Imperial County, along the state’s south-
ern border, had the state’s highest unem-
ployment rate in April at 24 percent. Marin
County in the San Francisco Bay Area was
lowest at 4.6 percent.
The state’s figure remains above the
national unemployment rate of 7.5 percent.
California had the fourth-highest jobless in
April, behind Nevada, Illinois and

NEW YORK — Shares of Marketo, a
provider of cloud-based marketing software,
leaped in their trading debut on Friday.
The stock rose $7.70, or 59.2 percent, to

were priced at $13, at the high end of the
expected range of $11 to $13 per share. The
broader markets rose just under 1 percent.

The initial public offering of approxi-
mately 6.1 million shares included about

by selling shareholders.
Marketo said in a filing with the Securities
and Exchange Commission that it planned
to use net proceeds from the offering and a
concurrent private placement for working
capital and other general corporate purpos-
es. The company said that it may also use
part of the proceeds to buy or invest in com-

Yahoo CEO to announce
‘something special’ in NYC
NEWYORK — Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer
is promising to unveil “something special”
Monday in New York as she tries to attract
more traffic and advertising to the Internet
The Sunnyvale company gave no further
details Friday other than that Mayer will be
discussing a product. Reporters are being
invited to attend the 5 p.m. event at a
lounge located in New York’s Times Square.
Mayer has been emphasizing the need for
better mobile applications and more video

ago after helping to build Google into the
Internet’s most powerful company during a
13-year career working there.
The invitations to Monday’s event were
sent out amid speculation that Yahoo might
form a partnership or buy a stake in Tumblr,
a content-sharing service that has become a
popular application for mobile devices.
The Tumblr talk was spurred by a post on
the technology site All Things D, which
reported Mayer has been in discussions
about a possible deal with Tumblr CEO

BALTIMORE — Everything’s a go for
The Kentucky Derby winner was in a play-
ful mood the day before the Preakness, mak-
ing faces for photographers between nib-
bles of grass outside his stall at Pimlico
Race Course.
“He’s really settled in well. He seems to
be energetic about what
he’s doing so I couldn’t
be more pleased,” trainer
Shug McGaughey said on
a warm and sunny Friday
morning. “We’re excited
about giving him a whirl
to see if we can get it
done and go on to the
next step.”
Getting it done would
mean defeating eight rivals in the 1 3-16-
mile Preakness to set up a Triple Crown try
in the Belmont Stakes three weeks from
Saturday. Orb is the even-money favorite,
and there’s a growing feeling that this 3-
year-old bay colt may be special enough to
give thoroughbred racing its first Triple
Crown champion since Affirmed in 1978.
“We’d sure love to have that opportuni-
t y,” said McGaughey, seeming relaxed and
confident. “Probably the racing world would
love to see it, too. It brings a lot more
attention to what we’re doing from all

OAKLAND — Rookie forward Draymond
Green walked out of Golden State’s practice
facility Friday holding a yellow “We Are
Warriors” shirt, taking home the small sou-
venir to savor the team’s captivating play-
off run.
Even though the season ended so painful-
l y, the Warriors will carry more positive
memories from the 2012-13 campaign than
they ever imagined back in training camp.
No banner will be raised and no rings will be
awarded, but there was a sense of accom-
plishment all around.
“The expectations for us this year, we
exceeded all of them plus way more,” Green
The Warriors overcame injury setbacks all
season to earn a rare playoff berth, pulled
off a first-round upset against Denver and
pushed the four-time champion San Antonio
Spurs to six games in the Western
Conference semifinals. The franchise won
more postseason games than it had in 36
years and might be on the brink of some-
thing even more special.

The Serra baseball team is used to success.
It’s expected of the Padres.
Serra manager Craig Gianinno is used to
winning. He expects it of himself.
But it’s been a while since both the Padres
and Gianinno have had a collection of talent
this year’s Serra squad has put together.
Center fielder Jordan Paroubeck, who is
expected to be selected in the first few rounds
in the Major League Baseball draft next
month, has gotten the bulk of attention, but
the rest of the Padres have been equally
impressive this season.
“It’s been a collective team effort,”
Gianinno said of the 25-6 Padres. “Given
the notoriety and attention [Paroubeck] has
received this year — just nonstop — just
the way the team has handled that, I can’t
say enough about our team and how they’ve
handled themselves.”
Despite Paroubeck’s eye-popping contri-
butions, he hasn’t been the only one. In
Wednesday’s 10-0 win over Sequoia,
Michael Tinsley was the big offensive hero,
blasting a pair of towering home runs.
Pitcher Matt Gorgolinski, who has played
second fiddle to Orlando Razo most of the
season, spun a five-inning no-hitter.
As a team, the Padres are batting .310,
with a .405 on-base percentage and a .474
slugging percentage. The pitching staff has
been equally impressive, compiling a team
ERA of 2.57 against arguably the toughest
schedule in the section. Opposing hitters
are batting just .223 against the Padres’
pitchers this season.
Wednesday was the latest example of
Serra’s total-team approach.
“What we showed on Wednesday was our
team playing our game and staying true to
our brand of baseball and it truly showed,”
Gianinno said.
The Padres, seeded second in the Central
Coast Section Division I tournament, will
now take on No. 7 Homestead (18-13),
which walked off with a 4-3 win over
Carlmont Wednesday. Game time is sched-
uled for 11 a.m. Saturday at Sacred Heart

SAN JOSE — Adizzying 22-second span
that led to a pair of Los Angeles power play
goals turned what appeared to be destined to
be a tied series into an 0-2 hole for the San
Jose Sharks.
The Sharks players say it didn’t take much
longer than that for them to put their Game
2 collapse behind them and turn their focus
to defending home ice the next two games
so they can tie their second-round series
with the Kings.
“Coming in today, we could have been
hanging our heads and moping around,”
defenseman Brad Stuart said Friday. “But I
don’t sense that at all. Obviously, guys
aren’t feeling good about what happened
last night but when you look at the big pic-
ture, we feel good about knowing what we
have to do and what we can control.”
So instead of looking back at the two late
penalties that led to the two power-play
goals that turned a 3-2 lead into a 4-3 loss,
the Sharks would rather bank on the fact
that they managed to score three goals
against Jonathan Quick, outplayed the
Stanley Cup champions for much of the
night and now have home-ice advantage for
the next two games beginning Saturday
night in Game 3.
San Jose lost just twice in regulation at
home all season, winning both meetings
against the Kings and both games in a first-
round sweep against Vancouver.
“We did a lot of really good things,” for-
ward Logan Couture said. “I thought we
deserved to win that game. But we’re down
2-0. It’s time to come into our building. It’s
going to be loud. The fans are going to be
into it. We have to find a way to win.”
The biggest areas of concern for San Jose
are on the special teams that dominated the
first round. The Sharks are 0-for-7 on the
power play although they did score 5 sec-
onds after Alec Martinez came out of the box
Thursday night and allowed three power-
play goals to the Kings in Game 2.
The Sharks appeared on their way to tying
the series when they took a 3-2 lead into the
closing minutes in Los Angeles on
Thursday night. But that all changed after
Stuart was called for tripping Tyler Toffoli
with 2:41 to play.
The situation only got more dire seconds
later when San Jose defenseman Marc-
Edouard Vlasic flipped the puck into the
stands for a two-minute delay of game
penalty that irked the Sharks because they
thought the puck deflected off Jeff Carter’s
“It clearly changed directions,” Vlasic
said. “I’ll leave it at that.”
Dustin Brown then converted a rebound
on a 5-on-3 advantage to tie the game with
1:43 left. Before the Sharks could even set-
tle down, the Kings scored the game-winner
when Trevor Lewis scored on a rebound 22
seconds later.
The Kings became just the third team
since at least 1987-88 to win a playoff game
in regulation when losing in the final two
minutes, according to STATS LLC. Los
Angeles knows it can’t always count on a
late-game escape to win.
“It was one of those games where we
weren’t as sharp as we wanted to be, but in
the end, we pulled it off,” center Anze
Kopitar said. “Sometimes that happens, but
we realize we’ve got to play better. ”

The Giants, who rallied from an early six-

Ken Venturi, who overcame dehydration
to win the 1964 U.S. Open and spent 35
years in the booth for CBS Sports, died
Friday afternoon. He was 82.
His son, Matt Venturi, said he died in a
hospital in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Venturi
had been hospitalized the last two months
for a spinal infection, pneumonia, and then
an intestinal infection
that he could no longer
fight .
Venturi died 12 days
after he was inducted into
the World Golf Hall of
He couldn’t make it to
the induction. His sons,
Matt and Tim, accepted
on his behalf after an
emotional tribute by Jim
Nantz, who worked alongside Venturi at
“When dad did receive the election into
the Hall of Fame, he had a twinkle in his
eye, and that twinkle is there every day, ”
Tim Venturi said that night.
Venturi was all about overcoming the
Aprominent amateur who grew up in San
Francisco, he captured his only major in the
1964 U.S. Open at Congressional, the last
year the final round was 36 holes. In oppres-
sive heat, Venturi showed signs of dehydra-
tion and a doctor recommended he stop
playing because it could be fatal. Venturi
pressed on to the finish, closed with a 70
and was heard to say, “My God, I’ve won the
U.S. Open.”

get results,” Jones said. “And doing this
three times, four times, five times a week —
supplementing it with being a soccer mom,
stroller derby, running, cycling, whatever it
is — this is just going to complement
Let’s be honest: When you waltz into the
Dethrone Basecamp, meet Jones, take a cou-
ple of steps across the lobby and into the
workout area, the 35:00 in all its LCD HD
glory that hangs above the mats doesn’t
look all that intimidating. And chances are
you’ve pedaled a bike before, done a push-
up or two, think you know what a squat
looks like or even had a friend explain to
you what a burpee is.
So when Jones walks you through the
Dethrone idea of a workout with a huge
smile on his face and the excitement of an
archeologist who can’t stop telling you
about his latest discovery in his voice, it’s
not a matter of should I do this, it’s OK,
when do I begin?
Yes, yes, all is calm. You have your water
and towel. Jones teaches you how to adjust
the seating on one of the airdyne bikes that
line the wall. He assigns you a number.
And then he says go.
And as the 35:00 melts down to 00:00 one
pedal at a time, a push-up at a time, a squat at
a time, a burpee at time, a drop of sweat at a
time, the fatigue that sets in is brutal, but
it’s only a precursor to the sense of accom-
plishment that follows.
“One of the best things about this work-
out is that’s it’s for any fitness level,” Jones
said. “You don’t have go as crazy if you want
… there are alternate workouts for any age,
any ability, any fitness level, any injury.
It’s low impact. You’re going to burn calo-
ries on the bike, you’re going to build lean
muscle on the mats. The circuit training that
is developed here is by far the best.”
Spend enough time getting your ass
kicked at Dethrone and you’ll see that it’s
hard to argue against Jones’ claim. Classes
range in size, from two up to 30 and the con-
stant change in exercise does make the 35-
minute workout fly by. At Dethrone, mem-
bers spend a minute on the airdyne bicycle
and hop off to perform the exercise assigned
to them by an iPad app developed by the
Dethrone team for another 60 seconds.
The rotation continues until the clock
hits 00:00.
That circuit training, plus 10 minutes
worth of core work, translates into an
intense reshaping of your body. And sure,
spend enough time anywhere and you’ll find
yourself a healthier person.
Sense of community
But perhaps the most important concept
Jones and the Dethrone team has nailed is a
sense of community that accompanies each
one of the daily classes offered at
“I think it’s the group atmosphere and if
you’re always keeping it fun, entertaining
and everyone is going for a common goal of
fitness and weight loss, I think Basecamp
just magnifies that by 20 times,” Jones
said. “Friends keep friends accountable.
Friends together have fun. If you can create
a fun atmosphere and a nice, clean facility
that can facilitate that sort of atmosphere,
then everyone is going to have a fun time,
everyone is going to benefit from it. Not
just fitness, but social. You need to have fit-
ness in your everyday life. And we can pro-
vide all of that.”
It’s true. Dethrone members run the entire
social spectrum and physical ability gamut.
Spend enough time at the cardio studio and
you’ll run into moms of four with abs you’d
swear you can do your laundry on, married
couples spending time improving their
health together, men who were once 100
pounds overweight and strong candidates
for diabetes who have shed 50 pounds, and
those in Generation Ywho’ve taken a peek
at the calendar and noticed summer is right
around the corner.
“I like to see change,” Jones said. “I like
to see in people’s faces how they change …
how they’re smiling when they get their ass
kicked. That is the top of the cake right
there. It feels good to be pushed. It feels
good to be in a group and everybody is
sweating, and hurting. But they’re going to
come back for more.”
And the Dethrone team knows they could-
n’t have chosen a better time to open their
doors in the ever-changing landscape that is
downtown Burlingame.
“Burlingame is one of the best cities on
the Peninsula,” Jones said. “It’s beautiful.
The downtown is beautiful and always try-
ing to be the best. This community is all
about fitness and I think this location was
perfect. You have the busy professionals,
you have all walks of life — young, older,
everybody is into fitness and being healthy.
It’s just convenient.
“I guess when you start something fresh,
something new, you don’t know if it’s
going to work. But the amount of response
we’ve gotten from this workout, from this
facility, from out staff, from our members
has just been incredible. It’s a great group of
people. I’m a 100 percent believer in this
business. Just from the first couple of
months and the amount of recognition …
the reviews, the feedback from our mem-
bers. As long as everything is fresh, and
new, and clean, and inviting, and welcom-
ing and friendly, that’s going to work.
There are gallons of sweat down on that mat
every single day. ”
Member Appreciation Week
Jones and Dethrone take that welcome to
another level next week with their Member
Appreciation Week — people from all over
San Mateo County are encouraged to come
and try the Basecamp for free. And Dethrone
members get to enjoy themed workouts,
compete and win prizes along the way.
“Work, kids, life, schedule is all a tough
thing. You have to make time in your sched-
ule for fitness,” Jones said. “The more fun
you have doing it, the more you’re going to
want to come back and do it again. The
thing about the people who come to work
out here is, after they leave here, there’s
workout guilt the next day. If they don’t
come work out, they feel guilty. And that’s
what you need. You need to have the sense
of, you’re coming to a home, coming some-
where where you know you’re going to
leave and not be short-changed. This isn’t
come in and run on the treadmill for 45 min-
utes. That’s easy to say ‘No, I don’t want to
go by myself, run and listen to head-
phones.’ This is a community of healthy
lifestyles. We change together as a team.”
Members of the Dethrone Basecamp Cardio Studio power through a Monday afternoon
workout. Dethrone has its Member Appreciation Week staring April 20 when people can

Report: Michael Phelps
planning comeback
Is Michael Phelps planning a comeback?
Areport Friday night from WBBH, an NBC
television affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla., said
Phelps will return to swimming with an eye
toward competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The three-paragraph story on the station’s
Web site was posted by news anchor Peter
Busch, who is the son of Frank Busch, director
of the U.S. national swim team.
“The greatest Olympian of all time isn’t
hanging up his swimsuit, after all,” the report
said, without citing any sources.
Phelps went on Twitter to downplay the
report, but he didn’t specifically deny it either.
“Why do I keep getting texts about coming
back?” he wrote. “Do (people) really believe
everything they hear or read? There are (too)
many (people) in the world that think they
have a ‘story.”’
Busch followed with a tweet that said he felt
“very confident with my info. Guess we’ll
Phelps has said repeatedly his swimming
career was over after winning 18 gold medals
and 22 medals overall, both totals far more
than any other Olympian. He retired at the age
of 27 immediately after last summer’s London
There was no other immediate comment
from the Phelps camp. Amessage was left with
one of his longtime agents, Drew Johnson.
Officials at USA Swimming also didn’t
immediately respond to a request for comment.
Just last weekend, longtime rival Ryan
Lochte was clearly skeptical that Phelps would
stick with his decision to retire from a sport he
dominated for the past decade, especially when
so many swimmers are competing well into
their 30s.
Sports brief
Weekend • May 18-19, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
No. 1 post, a spot that has seen only one
winner — Tabasco Cat in 1994 — since
“Who knows how this race is going to go,
but I don’t think it will be a problem,”
Rosario said of the inside post. “He’s a
horse that comes from behind, so I really
don’t think it will affect him. I’m just excit-
ed to go into this with a horse who has a
chance to win.”
While rival trainers aren’t conceding the
race, most agree Orb is the best of the
“Orb, he’s a freak. Right now, everybody
should be rooting for Orb, except for the
connections of the other horses in the
race,” trainer Bob Baffert said — and he’s
got a horse in the race, 12-1 choice
Govenor Charlie. “Anybody who’s not
rooting for Orb, there’s something mental-
ly wrong with them.”
Baffert has been there before. Three of his
five Preakness winners had also won the
Derby, but were unable to complete the
Triple Crown with a win in the Belmont. He
says the Preakness is the least stressful of
the three races.
“There is absolutely no pressure, believe
it or not because you’ve just won the
Derby,” he said. “You’re flying high and
everybody’s excited. You don’t think about
it. The next one (the Belmont) is the pres-
Getting to the next one may sound easy. It
isn’t. Six of the past eight Derby winners
did not win the Preakness, and McGaughey
is well aware of the pitfalls.
“There are a lot of ways you can lose.
Freaky things can happen,” he said. “You
hope he doesn’t get in any trouble, you
hope he handles the track, you hope he han-
dles the kickback of the dirt, you hope he
handles the day. If he does all that, I would
have to think it will take a pretty darn good
horse to beat him.”
Maybe it’s Goldencents, who did not take
to the slop at Churchill Downs and finished
17th after winning the Santa Anita Derby in
“Orb’s not like a one-race hit. All year
long he’s been super impressive,” said
Goldencents trainer Doug O’Neill, who won
the Derby and Preakness last year with I’ll
Have Another, only to scratch the colt the
day before the Belmont because of a tendon
injury. “But we’ve seen Goldencents do
some brilliant things in the afternoon. If he
does, I think he can beat him.”
Maybe it’s Itsmyluckyday, another top 3-
year-old who did not handle the sloppy
track and finished 15th in the Derby.
“He’s given me every sign that he’s ready
for the war; he’s ready for the race; he’s
ready for the battle,” trainer Eddie Plesa Jr. ,
said. “Let’s just get it on.”
Or maybe it’s Departing, one of the three
horses in the race who did not run in the
Derby. Orb knows Departing well — the two
were pals growing up at Claiborne Farm in
Paris, Ky., and ran around together in the
same field. The gelding has won four of five
starts, and comes into the Preakness off a
win in the Illinois Derby.

If Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut can find
a way to stay healthy, the Warriors believe
they can be a major championship contender
in the coming years.
“I think so,” Curry said. “We’re young. We
have a great core. And for us to get to the level
we got to this year, two wins away from the
Spurs to get to the Western Conference finals,
you feel like you have the confidence to do it,
the right pieces to do it. It takes a lot of things
going for anybody to win a championship,
but I feel like we have the pieces to do it.”
At the start of the season, Warriors general
manager Bob Myers referred to his revamped
roster as “good on paper.”
Questions persisted about how Curry would
return from two surgeries on his troublesome
right ankle and whether Bogut’s surgically
repaired left ankle would hold up. Coach Mark
Jackson even joked that his family’s financial
footing depended on his inside-out duo stay-
ing healthy.
Curry averaged a career-high 22.9 points
and 6.9 assists per game. He made 272 3-
pointers — three more than Ray Allen’s
record of 269 set with Seattle in 2005-06 —
shot 45 percent from the floor, including from
beyond the arc, and elevated his game to star
status in the playoffs.
Bogut began the season in the lineup before
missing 50 of 82 regular season games,
acknowledging he rushed back too soon.
While still hobbled by the left ankle, he
broke out in the playoffs to give Golden State
the lift it had hoped for inside.
By the time Thursday night’s 94-82 home
loss to the Spurs ended the season, Bogut said
he “was so jacked up on anti-inflammatories”
he couldn’t take an injection in his ankle to
ease the pain if he wanted to.
“I think it was hell for me for four months.
And the last three weeks until (Thursday), for
me, were great,” Bogut said.
Bogut plans to spend the summer splitting
time between his native Australia and Croatia
with family and friends. He expects to be at
full strength by training camp and his goal is
to play all 82 games next season, which he
has never done since Milwaukee drafted him
with the No. 1 overall pick in 2005 out of
All-Star power forward David Lee tried to gut
his way through a torn right hip flexor for
most of the playoffs and plans to have surgery
in the coming weeks. Top reserve Brandon
Rush should be back as well after he tore a lig-
ament in his left knee in the home opener.
And dynamic rookie Harrison Barnes, who sat
out the final quarter with headaches after tak-
ing a hard fall, sported six stitches above his
right eye but said he’d be just fine — and so
would the Warriors.
“I think when people look at this team,
coming in next year, they look at us as legit,”
Barnes said.
The Warriors will be somewhat limited in
free agency this summer.
The two biggest questions will be deciding
whether to re-sign free agent Jarrett Jack and
possibly Carl Landry, who is likely to opt out
of the final year of his two-year, $8 million
deal. Both Jack and Landry said they hope to
be back next season, citing all the right
phrases players usually use.
Whether the Warriors can afford them
remains unclear. If Landry does opt out,
Golden State will be at about the
$70,307,000 luxury tax line already, give or
take a million.

from picking up a win over Palomar in the
first game of the state softball tournament at
Bakersfield College, but Palomar scored in

SAN JOSE — Tejay van Garderen
raced to a dominating individual time
trial victory Friday in the Tour of
California to extend his overall lead
over Australian Michael Rogers.
Van Garderen, the 24-year-old
BMC rider who grew up in Bozeman,
Mont., completed the 19.6-mile
route in 48 minutes, 49 seconds. He
was the last of 112 riders on the hilly
and technical course in the sixth
“I don’t want to count my chickens
before they hatch, but I’m ready to
win, and I think it’s about time,” said
van Garderen, who finished fifth in
the event in 2011 and fourth last year.
I think now I’m finally mature
enough to pull through to the end. I
think I’m ready to do it.”
Dutchman Lieuwe Westra of
Vacansoleil-DCM, the stage one win-
ner, was second in 49:15.
Australia’s Rohan Dennis of
RadioShack Leopard was third in
Van Garderen, who took the race
lead with a 10th-place finish in the
fifth stage, leads Rogers, the Saxo-
Tinkoff rider and three-time world
time trial champion, by 1:47 sec-
onds with two stages left in the eight-
day race. Rogers finished fourth in
the stage, 1:05 behind van Garderen.
Rogers and several other top con-
tenders opted to switch from time
trial to road bikes to negotiate the
steep final climb.
“It was a steep climb, I think for me
maybe too steep for the time trial
bike, the gearing was more suitable
on the road bike,” said Rogers, the
2010 Tour of California winner. “It
was a perfect climb because it was
steep straight away, and the speed
dropped very fast. I took advantage
of the speed being low and changed,”
he said.
Van Garderen remained on his time
trial bike the entire route.
“There was really no place that you
could hold back,” said van Garderen,
who was fifth last year as the highest-
finishing American in the Tour de
France. “I started straightaway up
that climb. You just had to dig deep
there. The climb up to the finish was
hard. There was a couple of little
downhills that you could kind of soft-
pedal and catch your breath a little

Division II
No. 13 Burlingame (18-9) vs. No. 5 Willow
Glen (18-10), 11 a.m. at Bellarmine High
After coming up with a clutch 2-0 win
over Los Gatos in the first round, the
Panthers will face another tough task in the
Rams, who battered Los Altos to the tune of
10-0 in their first-round game Thursday.
Justin Bruce and John Riley did it all for
Willow Glen Thursday. They combined on a
four-hit shutout and also paced the Rams at
the plate. Bruce was a home run shy of the
cycle while driving in a pair of runs. Riley
got the homer Bruce was seeking and drove
in three.
The Rams have been especially tough to
score against as they posted a 1.70 ERAas a
team. The Panthers can probably expect to
face Willow Glen’s Kenny Corey in
Saturday’s quarterfinal game. Corey made
the second-most appearances (11) on the
mound for Willow Glen, posting a team-
leading 0.98 ERA while compiling a 5-1
record in 42 2/3 innings pitched.
Division III
No.5 Menlo School (20-7) vs.No.4 Soquel
(17-11-2), 2 p.m. at St. Francis
Menlo needed a bases-loaded, game-win-
ning single off the bat of Mikey Diekroeger
in the bottom of the seventh to beat Carmel
4-3 to advance to the Division III quarterfi-
nal matchup.
Menlo will take on a Soquel squad that
buried No. 13 Seaside 14-1 in the first
round. Soquel finished second in the Santa
Cruz Coast Athletic League this season and
are on a roll, having won nine of its last 10.
Soquel will most likely send ace Chris Viall
to the mound Saturday. Viall has posted a

“The only day I was up here and the opportunity opened
up,” McDaniel said, 26. “It was a total accident coming up
here. That was just ridiculous looking back on it.”
Since he did not compete in athletics at University of
Nevada, McDaniel still has college eligibility. When he
found out he was still eligible to compete in college, he
jumped at the chance, enrolling mainly in online courses at
CSM. Saturday, he will attempt to win a state title in the shot
put when CSM hosts the 63rd California Community College
Athletic Association Track and Field State Championship.
The competition started Friday with a number of field event
finals, along with the first day of the multi-discipline events
— decathlon and heptathlon. Saturday, however, is the big
day with all the running events being contested as well as the
conclusion of the field events.
Competition begins 9 a.m. Saturday and is expected to con-
clude about 5:30 p.m.
McDaniel said he thought about competing after high
school, but two things stood in his way: the fact University
of Nevada did not have a men’s track and field team and his
own attitude.
“I never thought I was a very good thrower,” McDaniel said.
“I still loved it, but there was nowhere to compete (in
Since his senior year of high school, however, McDaniel
has packed on the pounds — “All naturally,” he is quick to add
— and is now a rock-solid 258 pounds. Add in the coaching
of throws guru Mike Lewis and it has added up to McDaniel
becoming one of the best shot putters and discus throwers in
the state.
He also competes in the hammer throw and javelin, but it’s
in the other two disciplines he has made his mark.
“I would still be screwing around doing nothing without
[Lewis]. He’s just an awesome man to be in my life,”
McDaniel said. “I knew as soon as I started throwing with
him, I knew he was a good coach. He knows the throws.”
It’s one thing to have a coach to know what he’s doing. It’s
another to be able to implement those instructions. It’s a
two-way street and as good as coach Lewis is, McDaniel is an
equally good student.
“I consider myself a really coachable person,” McDaniel
said. “I’m able to make the adjustments.
“It’s astounding how technical the throws are. There are so
many adjustments you have to make.”
McDaniel said he’s not necessarily looking to win a state
championship. He just wants to perform at his best when it
matters the most.
“I’m not concerned where I place. I have some distances
where I want to get. I want to throw 60 feet in the shot. I want
to get the hammer above 170 (feet) and get the discus in that
same realm,” McDaniel said. “For track, it’s more individual.
It’s a sport based on individual events. It’s not really a head-
to-head competition.
“For track athletes, it’s more about setting your own stan-
Now a certified trainer at 24 Hour Fitness in San Mateo,
McDaniel would love to continue throwing after his CSM
career. There is a lot more opportunities to continue compet-
ing in California, compared to Nevada. After all but giving up
the sport once, he’s not ready to close the door too quickly
“I’m lucky to have gotten back into it. I’ll try to take it as
far as I can. I love throwing [stuff]. I want to throw more
[stuff],” McDaniel said. “I’m really trying to come back as
part of the coaching staff. … Just give back.”

Atletico wins Copa del Rey as Ronaldo ejected
MADRID — Atletico Madrid ended a 25-game, 14-year win-
less streak against rival Real Madrid, getting a 98th-minute
goal from Miranda for a 2-1 victory in the Copa del Rey final
on Friday night following the ejections of Real star Cristiano
Ronaldo and coach Jose Mourinho.
Ronaldo put Madrid ahead in the 14th minute with a header,
his 55th goal of the season, but Atletico tied the score in the
35th minute when Radamel Falcao set up Diego Costa.
Ronaldo and teammates Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema all
hit posts with shots before Atletico went ahead when
Miranda, a Brazilian defender, headed in a cross from Jorge
“Koke” Resurrecion.
Mourinho was sent off for protesting a foul in the 76th
minute. Likely heading back to Chelsea this summer, he is set
to finish his last of three seasons in Madrid without a title.
Ronaldo received a straight red card in the 114th for kicking
Gabi Fernandez in the face, setting off a sideline scuffle. Gabi
was ejected seconds before the final whistle for a second yellow
Atletico goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made one-on-one stops
to deny Gonzalo Higuain in the 104th and Ozil in the 109th. He
also was struck on the head by an object thrown from the stands
shortly after.
Atletico, which had 19 losses and six draws against Real
since its previous victory, won its 10th Copa del Rey title and
first since 1996.

punished this way,” Estes said, calling
her former sister-in-law vile, violent
and vengeful.
But Tatad, who did not address the
court, is “no monster” and caused the
death of the only man she ever loved,
according to her defense attorney
John May.
“She wishes desperately that she
could change the outcome of her rash
act,” May said. “She is so very, very
sorry for what has happened.”
Jesusa Tatad, 41, and Ronie Tatad,
36, were divorced but living together.
She reportedly thought they had plans
to remarry and bring their two daugh-
ters over from the Philippines but,
two weeks prior to the scalding, she
walked in on him and his girlfriend.
At approximately 10:50 a.m. Nov.
26, 2011, Tatad boiled a pot of water
which she poured on his face and upper
body. The sleeping man awoke in
intense pain and tried running to the
bathroom for safety before fleeing the
second-story apartment on Coronado
Avenue to find a security guard who
called police. Ronie Tatad was treated
for second- and third-degree burns on
more than 60 percent of his face. He
initially told the guard and police
Tatad attacked him with the water and
hit him over the head with a baseball
bat when he tried escaping but was
sedated by physicians due to the pain
and gave no further statements before
he died Dec. 9, 2011.
Estes, flying to San Francisco from
her home after the scalding, said he
died 20 minutes before her plane land-
ed and, when she did see him, he was
disfigured beyond recognition.
Tatad denied hitting him with the bat
and the autopsy did not confirm any
head trauma. Saying the scalding
water was the confirmed cause of his
death, Judge Robert Foiles on Friday
agreed to remove reference to the
claim from Tatad’s probation report.
However, Foiles spared her little
leniency in his remarks before sen-
“It’s truly unimaginable to kill
someone you purportedly love by
scalding them,” Foiles said.
Prosecutor Morris Maya echoed the
sentiment, saying that her taking
advantage of the vulnerable sleeping
man is “something that speaks vol-
umes here.”
Estes told Tatad directly that her hus-
band’s family may someday forgive
her for the brutal and merciless
killing, but not now.
“I hope you start praying to God to
have mercy on your soul,” Estes said.

BAGHDAD — Bombs ripped through
Sunni areas in Baghdad and surrounding
areas Friday, killing at least 76 people in
the deadliest day in Iraq in more than eight
months. The major spike in sectarian
bloodshed heightened fears the country
could again be veering toward civil war.
The attacks followed two days of bomb-
ings targeting Shiites, including bus stops
and outdoor markets, with a total of 130
people killed since Wednesday.
Scenes of bodies sprawled across a street
outside a mosque and mourners killed during
a funeral procession were reminiscent of
some of the worst days of retaliatory warfare
between the Islamic sects that peaked in
2006-2007 as U.S. forces battled extrem-
ists on both sides.
Tensions have been intensifying since
Sunnis began protesting what they say is
mistreatment at the hands of the Shiite-led
government, including random detentions
and neglect. The protests, which began in
December, have largely been peaceful, but
the number of attacks rose sharply after a
deadly security crackdown on a Sunni
protest camp in northern Iraq on April 23.
Majority Shiites control the levers of
power in post-Saddam Hussein Iraq.
Wishing to rebuild the nation rather than
revert to open warfare, they have largely
restrained their militias in the past five
years or so as Sunni extremist groups such
as al-Qaida have frequently targeted them
with large-scale attacks.
Nobody claimed responsibility for
Friday’s attacks, but the fact they occurred
in mainly Sunni areas raised suspicion that
Shiite militants were involved. The bombs
also were largely planted in the areas, as
opposed to the car bombings and suicide
attacks that al-Qaida in Iraq and other Sunni
insurgents are known to use.

Hagel orders review of sex-abuse prevention
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on
Friday ordered the military to recertify all 25,000 people
involved in programs designed to prevent and respond to
sexual assault, an acknowledgement that assaults have esca-
lated beyond the Pentagon’s control.
He said this step, which also applies to the military’s
approximately 19,000 recruiters and must be completed by
July 1, is one among many that will be taken to fix the prob-
lem of sexual abuse and sexual harassment within every
branch of the military.
At a news conference with Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Hagel said he believes alcohol
use is “a very big factor” in many sexual assault and sexual
harassment cases, but there are many pieces to the problem.

couple of years ago, my friends
and I were curious about what had
happened to a former math teacher
of ours who taught us in middle school.
None of us had heard
what school he’d moved
on to and so, of course,
we decided to Google
him. The first and most
notable hit was a
TEDTalk video called
“Why Math Instruction
Is Unnecessary.” As we
watched the video, we
couldn’t believe the irony — our former
math teacher was suggesting that the U.S.
educational system completely eradicate
traditional math classes like the very one
he’d taught us only a few years ago! What
was perhaps even more astonishing, how-
ever, was the confidence with which he’d
argued the idea. This man, once a slightly
shy and mild-mannered teacher who quietly
stood at the front of our classroom, was
now on stage in front of a large audience,
recording a video that’d be seen by thou-
sands of people.
Having never heard of the annual TED
conferences or TEDTalks, I was confused
about how this video had wound up along-
side seemingly unrelated talks with titles
ranging from “How Great Leaders Inspire
Action” to “The Surprising Science of
Happiness.” I soon learned that TED, which
stands for technology, entertainment and
design, brings together leaders in each of
these fields (and more) to discuss, as their
slogan implies, ideas worth spreading.
Since then, TED has become my favorite
source for videos when I feel like learning
something new. Teachers at my high
school have also caught on to the educa-

“Send in the Clowns,” the best known
song from “ALittle Night Music,” has been
interpreted by many popular singers,

“Stories We Tell” is a documentary about
Sarah Polley’s family: her father and moth-
er, sister and brother and the sister and
brother she has from her mother’s first mar-
riage. It’s about moments they’ve shared
that are seemingly prosaic and universally
relatable, depicted through the grainy,
faded nostalgia of Super 8 — splashing in
the swimming pool, laughing around the
dinner table — as well as the betrayals and
losses that shaped and strengthened them.
But while it’s incredibly specific in its
detail and makes you feel as if you’ve
known these people forever after spending
less than two hours with them, “Stories We
Tell” is also about every family. It reveals
that we’ll all unreliable narrators of our
own histories, especially after years and
even decades have gone by. And it reminds
us that the truth is a fleeting thing, con-
stantly changing in the slightest of ways
depending on who’s telling it.
Polley, the Toronto-based actress-turned-
filmmaker, has shown astonishing emo-
tional depth and technical maturity at a
young age in just two previous features:
“Away From Her” and “Take This Waltz.”
Like those earlier films, “Stories We Tell”
focuses on how a long-term relationship
evolves over time. Now 34 and tackling a
subject that’s so close to her heart, she
reveals a whole new level of artistic mas-
tery. Her meta, multilayered exploration of
her own past combines interviews,
archival footage and meticulous reenact-
ments so seamlessly, it’s hard to tell what’s
real and what’s mythologized. And that’s
the point.
Even calling “Stories We Tell” a docu-
mentary seems rather limiting and not
entirely accurate; it’s also a deadpan come-
dy, a juicy melodrama and a gripping mys-

Macarons. Madeleines. Almond Limoncello Cake. The
aroma of fresh baked creations of every sort waft through
the cozy 30-seat Petite Rêve Café, within the sound of the
surf in Ventura. The owner and baker-in-chief is Kate
Dunbar, who graciously welcomes locals and visitors
alike into her charming culinary kingdom. Dunbar’s
observations about her business are sprinkled with
descriptions of her delectable edible wares:
“Petite Rêve Cafe is my “small dream.” I
wanted to have a business of my own that
provided a comfortable and quaint
environment, while also offering seasonal
ingredients as local as possible.”
LEMON BARS: A buttery shortbread base with a
tangy soft lemon topping made of fresh and local Ventura
County citrus.
“Corset cookies and other decorated
cookies are a new signature item. It was
just a “let’s try this” idea. We use a cross
between a shortbread and a butter cookie.
The dough is very soft but holds up
perfectly, the royal icing we make has
hints of vanilla and almond. We “the
bakery” have entered into wedding
season and brides are ordering these
cookies all the time, whether it is for their
shower, bachelorette party or even their
wedding day; we are known for them.
The menu now also has stiletto high heel
shoes, bikinis, surfboards and
CRÊPES CAKE: Twenty light and airy layers of hand-
made crêpes. In between each layer is a filling, whipped
Chocolate Ganache, whipped Lemon Curd or Vanilla Bean
Pastry Cream, as you like.
“I’m a scratch baker. My mom taught me
all the basics about baking and my cousin,
who is a chef, polished the lessons. My
husband and my three children play such
an important part in the day-to-day
operation, from taste testing to menu
FRENCH CHOCOLATE BARK: Dark chocolate with
almonds or cashew nuts, dried apricots, cherries and can-
died ginger.
“Whether I was purchasing produce from
my family’s farms, tea from my mentor or
coffee from our local roaster, I wanted to
keep things small and accessible.”
CREAM PUFFS: Small, crisp, hollow rounds of choux
pastry split in half, filled with sweet cream and dusted
with a thick coating of powdered sugar.
“Having a business in the beach
community also adds to the charm of
Ventura. It’s the perfect wake up or close
to the day — a coffee or tea and a pastry.”

Try seaside oyster tasting at The Jolly Oyster food truck
and stand, next to the beach in San Buenaventura State
Park in Ventura. Visitors can purchase sustainably farmed,
freshly harvested oysters and clams by the piece or the
pound, and can eat them raw on the spot, grill them near-
by or pack them up to go. Unshucked oysters, Kumamoto
and Pacific, are $1 each. One pound of Manila clams are
$5. Or try the popular $40 Jolly Special, made up of
either 4 dozen oysters (any mix), or 3 dozen oysters and 2
pounds of clams, or 2 dozen oysters and 4 pounds of
clams. You can bring your own shucking knives, cooking
tools and sauces, or buy them on site. If you don’t know
how to shuck, don’t worry, The Jolly Oyster folk will
show you how. Convenient picnic tables and barbecues
make an impromptu picnic as easy as, well, shucking an
oyster. Bring soft drinks and water or even wine and beer
(allowed in this State Park). And, for the clams, a nice loaf
of French bread is perfect for sopping up the broth.
The entrance to Buenaventura State Beach is on Pedro
Street, near the intersection of Harbor Boulevard and
Highway 101. If you are planning to stay at the park for
the day, parking is $10. If just picking up from The Jolly
Oyster, let the rangers know, and they will give you a
sticky note for your dashboard to allow a quick stop. The
Jolly Oyster food truck is parked between a large picnic
area and the “silo” bathrooms. To learn more about The

What are you doing after the apoca-
Video-game creators have been ask-
ing that question for years, with results
ranging from Bethesda’s sublime
“Fallout 3” to id Software’s forgettable
Ukrainian developer 4A Games fell
somewhere in between with 2010’s
“Metro: 2033,” based on the bleak fic-
tion of Russian novelist Dmitry
Glukhovsky. It boasted incredibly
detailed visuals that helped the player
overlook somewhat sluggish combat
controls, clunky artificial intelligence
and a somewhat vague narrative.
The new sequel, “Metro: Last Light”
(Deep Silver, for PlayStation 3 and
Xbox 360, $59.99; PC, $49.99),
addresses all those complaints. While
the visuals remain extraordinary, the
combat controls are now tight and
responsive, the menus have been
streamlined and the enemy AI has
improved enough to forgive some occa-
sional quirks.
Like its predecessor, “Last Light”
throws you into a gloomy, claustropho-
bic world teeming with tension and
very little else beneath a nuclear-rav-
aged Moscow.
No hidden caches of high-level
weapons. Scarce medical supplies. A
flashlight you need to constantly
recharge. Gas masks that require new fil-
ters to avoid suffocation. High-grade
ammo that is best conserved because it
doubles as currency. Yes, life in the
Metro tunnels is harsh, unforgiving and
entirely dependent on smart resource
As a young Russian named Artyom,
you wake up in the military compound
you discovered in “2033” after the mis-
sile attack that destroyed the surface-
dwelling Dark Ones. Artyom has his
doubts about that decision to destroy
the Dark Ones and sets out to learn more
about the creatures. Are they friend or
foe? Mutant or alien? Perhaps some-
thing in between?
On your journey through the tunnels
and the occasional foray to a very harsh
surface, you come across communists,
Fourth Reich Nazis and ordinary folks
inhabiting the heavily fortified train
stations. Factions still fight each other
over ideology and seek any advantage
they can get — even as many deadly
forms of mutated life roam the surface
and stalk the network of tunnels.
If you want to be stealthy, you can
take down enemies with throwing
knives. If you don’t care how much
noise you make, you can wield pistols,
shotguns and rifles. One of the more
interesting weapons in your arsenal is a
pneumatic rifle you need to pump: Push
the gauge too high and the weapon
jams, too low and it’s like firing a BB
But the greatest strength of “Last
Light” is how deeply it immerses you in
this dark and dangerous place.
The dancing shadows and nearly
inaudible ambient sounds will have you
wheeling around only to find nothing.
The gunfire is muffled when you’re wear-
ing a gas mask, which fogs up the
longer you wear it and needs the occa-
sional hand wipe to remove the blood
and grime. Health regenerates slowly
but the process can be sped up with
adrenaline shots. And you have to put
down your weapon in order to read the
clipboard that lists your objectives.
While “2033” had some lively char-
acters in the Metro stations, 4A has
gone a step further with the great dia-
logue and voice acting in “Last Light.”
You truly get a sense that these places
are inhabited by real people engaged in
a struggle for survival. Even the
stripped-down, midtempo score — built
around moody, reverb-heavy guitar —
perfectly fits the Metro tunnels and the
hard life of their inhabitants.
It’s a grim, disturbing future, and not
for the faint of heart. Three and a half
stars out of four.
‘Metro: Last Light’ digs deep under Moscow
‘Last Light’throws you into a gloomy, claustrophobic world teeming with tension
and very little else beneath a nuclear-ravaged Moscow.
‘Sonic’ heading to Nintendo
By Derrik J. Lang
LOS ANGELES — Sonic the Hedgehog is rolling with
Sega says it will exclusively release the next three games
starring the popular blue critter on Nintendo platforms.
The first title will be called “Sonic Lost World” and is set
for release on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this year.
“With ‘Sonic Lost World,’ we’re going to introduce new
gameplay and enemies, which is always fun,” said John
Cheng, president and chief operating officer of Sega of
America Inc. “In terms of Sonic and his friends, he’ll have
his same friends there, and I think there’ll be some new
ones as well. It’s not a reiteration. It’s going to be all
new. ”
The original fast-paced side-scrolling “Sonic the
Hedgehog” debuted in 1991. The twirling, ring-hoarding
hedgehog became Sega’s mascot and a video-game icon
rivaling the likes of Mario and Pac-Man.
While his recent interactive exploits haven’t achieved
the same level of success as previous “Sonic” outings, the
character has remained a presence in pop culture, appearing
in cartoons, downloadable games and the Disney film
“Wreck-It Ralph.”
“The onetime rivalry between Mario and Sonic has
grown into a friendship that has never been closer,” said
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime in a state-
ment. “These announcements in conjunction with Sega
demonstrate the commitment we have to bringing great
games to the Wii U platform, and set the stage for our
upcoming announcements at E3.”
Sonic has competed against Nintendo Co.’s mustachioed
spokesman Mario since 2007 in the “Mario & Sonic at the
Olympic Games” mini-game series. Cheng said the charac-
ters would be back for more match-ups in “Mario & Sonic
at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.”

tional benefits of TEDTalks. In my
European history class sophomore year, we
watched psychologist Philip Zimbardo dis-
cuss “the psychology of evil” as a supple-
ment to our unit on World War II and simi-
larly, in an English course junior year, my
class watched author Chimamanda
Adichie’s talk “The Danger of a Single
Story” before reading one of her novels.
In English class this year, our teacher
was so fond of TEDTalks that she had us
watch and blog about them monthly.
Recently, our TEDTalk assignments culmi-
nated in a final project in which we had to
give a talk of our own. Talks could be about
any subject, were to last about 15 minutes
and would be presented in front of our class
and teacher. Some students found it easy to
choose a topic — a classmate of mine with
a passion for farming and environmental
sustainability spoke about the danger of
misleading food labels. Another student
gave us a guide to her family’s culture in a
talk called “How to Be Persian” while a
friend of mine went with the clever option
of “How Not to Give a TedTALK.” I strug-
gled to pick a topic at first, but one day
came across an article about online identity
and was immediately interested. I soon
came up with the topic “The Psychology of
Facebook” and attempted to explain the
motives behind certain status updates, pro-
file pictures and wall posts. Although I’m
no expert on psychology, it was easy for
me to point out the funny trends I see in
my Facebook news feed every day. The
range in topics chosen was incredible and,
in those 15-minute talks, I felt as though I
learned more about some of my classmates
than I had all year. Just as our former math
teacher had seemed so confident in his own
TEDTalk, every single one of the students
in my class seemed more self-assured and
comfortable than I’d seen them in any
other public speaking situation. Few peo-
ple used notes or relied on the text on their
presentation slides — instead, students
spoke openly and conversationally as a
result of having picked topics that were
already important and familiar to them.
While my teacher assigned our individual
TEDTalks under the pretense of practice for
our senior project presentations that we’ll
give at the end of the month, she eventual-
ly admitted that she was just curious and
eager to hear what each of us would have to
say without the pressure of an assigned
topic. The entire TED project was by far
one of the most successful assignments
I’ve seen in my high school career, most
likely because students were able discuss
topics of personal interest. The freedom
allowed in this assignment resulted in huge
effort and engagement from all of my class-
mates and I hope, as a result, teachers con-
tinue to follow TED’s example and give
students the opportunity to discuss ideas
they deem worth sharing.

tery, all cleverly blended together with
great focus. But Polley pulls back the cur-
tain from time to time to share her
process, which creates an even greater
sense of intimacy. Her siblings squirm
beneath a boom mic and hot lights, worry-
ing about how they look. Her father, the
actor Michael Polley, stands at a micro-
phone in a recording studio, reading in a
rich, British accent his own poetic ver-
sion of the family’s history that he wrote;
Polley, sitting at a sound board on the
other side of the glass, politely instructs
him to repeat a line here and there.
Their bond is obviously a warm and
comfortable one, and has remained so
despite the revelations that the film
recounts. (Do NOT do a Google search
before you see this movie. Experience it
for yourself.)
“Stories We Tell” sprang from a recurring
joke within the Polley family that Sarah
didn’t resemble her father much. Relatives
and longtime friends remember her mother,
Diane Polley, who died of cancer when
Sarah was only 11, as a charismatic, fun-
loving stage actress. But she also had
secrets. Polley sat all these people down in
front of a camera, one by one, and asked
them to tell her the family’s story as if she
were meeting them for the first time. (The
fact that these anecdotes are sprinkled with
healthy helpings of dry, self-effacing
Canadian humor makes us want to get to
know these people even more.)
Because we are seeing the same moments
over and over, as recalled from varying
perspectives, “Stories We Tell” grows a tad
repetitive, and the proliferation of shaky,
hand-held camera can be a little dizzying.
Even more powerful, though, is the
overwhelming sense of discovery, the
relief of catharsis, and the rush of uplift at
the conclusion.
“Stories We Tell,” a Roadside Attractions
release, is rated PG-13 for thematic ele-
ments involving sexuality, brief strong
language and smoking. Running time:
108 minutes. Three and a half stars out of

year-old Anne (Nicolette Norgaard), who
has not allowed their marriage to be con-
summated. His son, the morose Henrik
(Jack Mosbacher), is studying to become a
minister and secretly loves Anne.
Fredrik and Desirée get together again one
night, but they’re interrupted by her hot-
tempered, married lover, Count Carl-
Magnus Malcolm.
Everything gets sorted out in the second
act, when everyone converges at the coun-
try home of Desirée’s mother, Madame
Leonora Armfeldt (Christine Macomber),
who’s caring for Desirée’s young daughter,
Fredrika (Leah Kalish).
Composer-lyricist Sondheim and his
librettist, Hugh Wheeler, based the plot on
Swedish director Ingmar Bergman’s 1955
film, “Smiles of a Summer Night.” The title
is a literal translation of Mozart’s “Eine
Kleine Nachtmusik.” Most of the songs are
written in waltz tempo, and several scenes
are introduced by three women and two men
called the Liebeslieder Singers, a nod to an
1852 waltz by Johann Strauss II.
Director Dennis Lickteig has chosen per-
formers who create believable characters.
Not all of them are so pitch-perfect vocally,
but they interpret their songs well, thanks
to musical director Greg Sudmeier.
Besides Payne and Weston as Desirée and
Fredrik, the show’s standout performers
include Mosbacher as Henrik, Giammona as
the count, Alicia Teeter as his wife and
Macomber as Madame Armfeldt.
Noteworthy in a minor role is Sarah Griner
as Petra, the Egermans’ maid.
“A Little Night Music,” like any
Sondheim show, is challenging because of
its complex music and lyrics, but Hillbarn
meets those challenges successfully in this
fine production.
It will continue at Hillbarn Theatre, 1285
E. Hillsdale Blvd., Foster City, through
June 2. For tickets and information call

Weekend • May 18-19, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By David Germain
PARK CITY, Utah — Enough
with telling other people’s sto-
ries. Sarah Polley has moved on to
telling her own, and it’s as
strange, revealing, disturbing and
ultimately uplifting as anything a
fictional filmmaker could dream up
in her own head.
A shifting blend of documen-
tary, confessional and reenact-
ment, Polley’s “Stories We Tell”
picks away at layers of history and
mystery in her family life, expos-
ing secrets to the world that many
wouldn’t want to share even with
close friends.
Along-standing family joke —
that Polley’s father might not be
her real father — sends her on a
detective story as she turns the
camera on loved ones to discover
the truth about her mother, who
died of cancer when Polley was an
11-year-old child actress with a
career just taking off in Canada.
Polley, 34, began it as a small
experiment in storytelling, exam-
ining the selective, often contra-
dictory nature of memory and how
it can add up to a broader collec-
tive truth than what’s presented by
mere facts alone.
“It kind of snowballed into a
film, but at every stage, I was
ambivalent about how much I
wanted to go forward,” said
Polley, an Academy Award nomi-
nee for the screenplay of her
directing debut, 2007’s “Away
from Her,” adapted from an Alice
Munro short story about an elderly
couple coping with Alzheimer’s .
“Because it is scary to expose
yourself and the people close to
you in this way, and it is always a
danger of being incredibly self-
“So I was really conscious of
how embarrassing it could be, how
ugly a process it could be to have
people know so much about you,”
Polley said in an interview earlier
this year at the Sundance Film
Festival, where “Stories We Tell”
played ahead of gradual theatrical
rollout this month. “At the same
time, I couldn’t stop making it,
and I felt like I was learning so
much. And I felt like the film was
taking on a life of its own and
becoming so much more about
storytelling and about why we
need to tell narratives about our
lives than about my family and the
nitty-gritty details about us.”
Polley’s second film was last
year’s Michelle Williams-Seth
Rogen romantic drama “Take This
Waltz,” the filmmaker’s first origi-
nal screenplay.
As she was developing that
project and starring in such films
as the romantic fantasy “Mr.
Nobody” and the horror tale
“Splice,” Polley continued to
piece together “Stories We Tell.”
The work began with straight-
ahead interviews with her sib-
lings, her father, Michael Polley,
other relatives and family friends.
Through their recollections, a
portrait emerges of Polley’s moth-
er, Diane, a vivacious woman
whose life took dark turns and
whose aspirations as an actress
complicated her family obliga-
As secrets about Diane Polley
were revealed, the film expanded to
include a seamless hybrid of
archival home footage and re-cre-
ations featuring actors. Michael
Polley also set out to chronicle
his side of the story in writing,
and his daughter puts him on cam-
era reading long, lyrical passages
that serve as the soul of “Stories
We Tell.”
Polley adopted the hybrid of
authentic family movies and reen-
actments to give viewers a sense
of the uncertainty she experienced
herself as she tried to get at the
truth amid the conflicting stories
her players told.
“It was a constant feeling of
what is true? What is kind of true?
What’s a lie? What is a fabrication
that’s unintentional? What’s a
fabrication that is intentional?”
Polley said.
“When you’re listening to other
people’s versions and they
diverge from each other, you’re
just in this constant sense of not
knowing what you can hang on to.
And I wanted to give the audience
of the film the same feeling of just
questioning, like, what is real,
what is real footage, what is not
real footage, what is found
footage? What is the product of
someone’s imagination? And just
to be in that state of not knowing,
which I think we all are in relation
to our family histories.”
The truth of Polley’s family his-
tory and her parentage has been
revealed in press coverage since
“Stories We Tell” premiered at film
festivals last fall. But we won’t
spill any secrets here; it’s best to
see the film without knowing the
twists and surprises in store.
Polley’s heading back to telling
other people’s stories now, devel-
oping an adaptation of Margaret
Atwood’s novel “Alias Grace.” A
quote from the novel serves as the
epigram for “Stories We Tell,”
Atwood writing that a story isn’t a
story as it’s playing out, “but
only a confusion. ... It’s only
afterwards that it becomes any-
thing like a story at all. When
you’re telling it, to yourself or to
someone else.”
Telling her own family story has
cleared up much of the confusion
for Polley over her mother.
“Sitting down for many hours at
a time with everybody that was
close to her, I feel like I have a
much deeper knowledge of her, and
I think it’s a privilege most peo-
ple don’t get when you lose a par-
ent young,” Polley said.
“Hopefully, you have a few people
who have stories, but to actually
be able to dive into this in such a
concentrated way and get to know
this person, it wasn’t the inten-
tion of making the film, but it was
an amazing byproduct.”
Polley tells all on herself in ‘Stories We Tell’

By Christy Lemire
LOS ANGELES — The thriller “Black
Rock” is about a trio of childhood
friends (Kate
Bosworth, Lake Bell
and director Katie
Aselton) who travel
to a remote island off
the coast of Maine to
work through past
issues and recon-
nect. But when it
turns out they’re not
the only ones on the
island, they end up
having to fight for their lives.
Aselton’s film, playing in select
cities this weekend and through video
on demand nationwide, celebrates the
inner strength and resourcefulness
women can summon when they’re called
upon to find it. So it’s only fitting that
the actress and filmmaker, perhaps best
known for her supporting work on the
FX comedy series “The League,” should
choose five favorite movies about
strong women who take charge. It’s also
a pleasure to have her here since her hus-
band, writer-director-actor Mark
Duplass, took over the Five Most space
last year with a list of great time-travel
movies when “Safety Not Guaranteed”
Here’s Aselton, in her own words:
“Terminator 2:
Judgment Day”(1991):
You cannot talk female heroines and
not acknowledge Sarah Connor, a char-
acter faced with not just the challenge of
preventing a nuclear war, but protecting
her son. The girl is textbook bad-ass.
And she has the guns to prove it.
“Thelma & Louise”(1991):
I love everything about this movie,
but more than anything, this film illus-
trates a beautiful, authentic friendship
between two women and how deeply
fierce a bond like that can run. I love that
these two women took the wheel of their
lives and take us, as an audience, on an
amazing ride.
“Bull Durham”(1988):
Susan Sarandon, again, I know! But
the woman epitomizes bad-ass to me
perfectly in that she never compromises
her sexuality by being strong and smart.
The woman makes no apologies in her
characters or her performances. As
Annie in “Bull Durham,” she delivers
another one of these amazing perform-
ances and cemented her place as “who I
want to be when I grow up.”
“The River Wild”(1994):
And then there is Meryl Streep. Who
is amazing in everything. And while
“The River Wild” may not be the high-
est moment in cinematic history, she
plays an amazing mother who finds her-
self in the extraordinary situation of
having to save her husband and son
from deranged thieves on the run. Crazy,
I know, but it’s Meryl, and she does it all
on a river raft while navigating rapids in
mom jean shorts!
And finally, my favorite kick-ass girl
is ... a dude? But Dustin Hoffman’s char-
acter, Dorothy Michaels, taught us more
about being a strong, powerful, com-
passionate woman in this world than
most actual female characters could ever
try to do. Dorothy Michaels is certainly
a bad-ass role model for us all. And I will
leave you with one of my favorite quotes
of hers: “Oh, I know what y’all really
want is some gross caricature of a
woman to prove some idiotic point that
power makes a woman masculine, or
masculine women are ugly. Well, shame
on you for letting a man do that, or any
man that does that.”

first-degree murder for financial gain.
The gain, Finigan said, was not only
$600,000 in Parineh’s pocket but also
roughly $30 million in life insurance
that would cover a legal judgment and
hand the couple’s three grown children
$26.5 million tax free which he hoped
to tap for his own use. The life insur-
ance policies on his wife’s life were
about to collapse and Parineh had to
act — much as he had six weeks earlier
when his wife survived an overdose
only to awaken and express surprise
she was still alive, according to
Finigan who said the alleged suicide
pact was Parineh’s first try to escape
financial ruin.
But Parineh’s defense said while
money was the motive behind Parima
Parineh’s April 13, 2010 shooting,
the 57-year-old artist was the one who
pulled the trigger out of depression
about the family finances and to free
the children from the mountain of
debt. Defense attorney Dek Ketchum,
who closed out his case earlier in the
week by reconstructing in court the
actual bed in which Parineh died,
argued his client is too smart to kill
his wife the exact week the policies
were ending or think that an insurance
payout is immediate — and that is if
his estranged and hostile children
would have given him access.
Parima Parineh’s motivation was
clearer, he said.
“Mrs. Parineh was overwrought with
financial circumstances. She wanted
her kids to get something,” Ketchum
The defense claims Peter Parineh
returned home from the gym around 4
p.m. to find his wife dead in their mas-
ter bedroom and during trial played a
911 tape that captured him sobbing
and almost unable to answer dispatch-
er questions.
At stake for Peter Parineh is the pos-
sibility of life in prison without the
possibility of parole.
Friday’s final arguments before the
jury wrap up a trial that began in late
April and gave insight into a family
real estate empire that had once
swelled to tens of millions of dollars
but had dwindled to near-nothing with
five properties in foreclosure, mount-
ing financial obligations and Peter
Parineh losing his sole source of
income when his commercial building
was taken over for lack of payment.
The jury also heard about the family
dynamics — from Peter Parineh,
whose children who described him as
controlling and aloof to his wife, who
was depressed and had already tried
once to take her life. Peter Parineh had
a former mistress who he admittedly
called several times each day and
shared a hotel room for several days
following his wife’s death. The
Parineh children, who initially stood
by their father, now believe him guilty
and are suing for wrongful death.
Ketchum said each child’s testimony is
problematic and argued they lied to
convince the jury their mother was not
severely depressed and to bolster the
case against their father.
The prosecution, he said, is “trying
to put a square peg in a round hole.”
He dismissed daughter Austiaj
Parineh’s testimony her father admit-
ted the shooting but said it was a mercy
killing to finish a botched job.
Ketchum also pointed out Kasha
Parineh’s conflicting testimony about
what guns his father owned.
The children, who were in court
Friday, averted their gaze as graphic
crime photos of their mother flashed
before the jury and packed audience.
Peter Parineh also often bowed his
Ketchum also told jurors Peter
Parineh’s former lover was not neces-
sarily a woman “waiting in the wings”
for him and, as he did with much of the
prosecution’s theory, suggested there
was a reasonable alternative explana-
tion that should be accepted instead.
But aside from the personalities at
play, attorneys asked jurors to focus
on financial records and what each said
the bloody crime scene showed about
what really happened. Finigan’s
experts claimed the bullet trajectory
and unnatural position of the body
with the gun under her hand showed it
had been moved. Parima Parineh’s
tooth was under one arm and a white
pillow was on top of a blood swipe —
both impossible if she had shot her-
self, Finigan said.
Finigan also argued phone records
put Peter Parineh at the Fox Hill Road
home at the time his wife died and,
contrary to his typical habits, he did
not answer his cellphone for a long
stretch of time during which he was
shooting her and cleaning up the
scene. The defense firearms expert’s
theory of the shooting is “ridiculous”
because it defied the laws of physics for
the four bullets fired, flying wood
chips from the headboard and blood
splatter, Finigan said.
Finigan also told jurors to consider
the circumstantial evidence, such as
Peter Parineh telling his son after his
wife’s unsuccessful overdose that he
missed out on the chance at $30 mil-
lion or his story that he gave her the
gun after the attempt.
“What does that tell you the defen-
dant wants to happen to his wife?”
Finigan asked.
Peter Parineh’s lack of attendance at
memorial services while simultane-
ously visiting the gym and staying
with his former paramour also undercut
his claims of depression and need for
solitude, Finigan said.
“How depressed was he in this peri-
od? Not at all because he knew the
money was coming in,” Finigan said.
Peter Parineh remains in custody
without bail.

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

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