A signature-gathering effort is
underway to urge the Belmont City
Council to modernize Ralston
Avenue to make it safer for pedes-
trians and bicyclists.
Former Belmont resident Mike
Swire started the petition to reduce
the number of serious accidents
and deaths on the city’s only east-
west connection and fastest thor-
So far, 461 people have signed
the petition that Swire intends to
submit to the City Council. Even
though Swire no longer lives in
the city, he still likes to ride his
bike recreationally in his former
hometown. He started the petition
after a good friend was recently
struck by a vehicle while crossing
Ralston Avenue, he told the Daily
The effort aims to have the city
reduce speeds on Ralston Avenue
to 25 mph in all sections.
High speeds make it harder for
residents to access Ralston
Avenue and attract out-of-towners
who use Highway 101 and
Interstate 280, according to the

Feierbach said sharing Ralston
Avenue might not be feasible for
Ralston gets about 35,000 vehi-
cle trips a day.
“When you ride your bike on
Ralston you take your life into
your own hands,” Feierbach told
the Daily Journal yesterday. “Cars
come first. It’s our lifeline.”
The signatures are being gath-
ered as the council will consider at
its next meeting whether to renew
a contract for red light cameras,
which are supposed to make traffic
conditions safer.
Although Feierbach approved
the cameras three years ago, she
will not vote to renew the contract
Group seeks safer road
Bicycle and pedestrian measures urged for busy Belmont thoroughfare
By Heather Murtagh
Consolidating the San Carlos
Elementary School District office
for the superintendent and other
administrative staff comes with a
nearly $2 million budget, which
will go before the Board of
Trustees for approval Thursday.
In April, the district announced
it had put a bid on 1200 Industrial
Road, Unit 9 which, if accepted,
would allow for a move from the
Central Middle School campus.
The district, which has been heav-
ily affected by growing enroll-
ment, included a new home for the
district office as part of the
Facilities Master Plan adopted by
the board in March. Anew district
office was budgeted to cost $3.5
million. On Thursday, the board
will approve a resolution to pur-
chase the property for $1.986 mil-
lion, according to a staff report.
Much of the Facilities Master
Plan, including the new district
office, will be funded by Measure H
— a $72 million bond measure
passed by voters in November.
Superintendent Craig Baker previ-
ously said the cost gave the dis-
trict the perks of being move-in
San Carlos getting newdistrict office
So far, 461 people have signed a petition to urge the Belmont City Council to modernize Ralston Avenue to make it safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.
The San Carlos Elementary School District office will soon be housed at 1200
Industrial Road, Unit 9. On Thursday, the Board of Trustees will vote on a
resolution confirming the purchase of the space.
Grand jury raises
questions about
nursing program
Report offers minor
to health care district
By Bill Silverfarb
Anursing program funded by the
Sequoia Healthcare District needs
“careful monitoring,” according to
a report released by the San Mateo
County Civil Grand Jury yester-
The report states that the district
supports a nursing program at San
Francisco State University and
Cañada College to help prepare
qualified nurses to work at Sequoia
Hospital but that it does not know
how many nursing graduates actu-
ally get hired at the hospital or any
hospital in the county.
The district raises about $9 mil-
lion in property taxes annually to
serve about 220,000 residents in
southern San Mateo County. It
spends $1 million annually on the
nursing program but that will be
reduced to $500,000 in the next
two years, the district’s Chief
Executive Officer Lee Michelson
told the Daily Journal yesterday.
The district has been supporting

Report calls information
confusing for the public
By Michelle Durand
The county’s finances are report-
ed in a way too large and compli-
cated for easy public digestion,
according to the San Mateo
County Civil Grand Jury which
yesterday urged changes like inclu-
sion of total employee compensa-
tion and the annual costs of pen-
sion liability.
The report “San Mateo County
Financial Reporting: Toward
Clarity and Transparency,” con-
cluded that neither the county
budget nor the controller’s com-
prehensive annual financial report
includes some financial elements
the public would find useful. The
grand jury also said the budget fell
short in reporting all of the coun-
ty’s anticipated revenues, such as

‘French kiss’ finally
enters French dictionary
PARIS — For centuries, there’s been
no official French word for the sloppy
Gallic export “to French kiss” — though
that certainly hasn’t stopped any citizen
from doing so.
Now the oversight has been rectified.
The one-word verb “galocher” — to
kiss with tongues — is among new
entries added to the “Petit Robert” 2014
French dictionary, which hit the shops
It may surprise many that France — a
country famed for its amorous exploits
and which gave the world sex-symbol
Brigitte Bardot, romantic photographer
Robert Doiseau and even scandal-hit for-
mer IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn -
is only just linguistically embracing the
popular pastime.
Yet Laurence Laporte of the Robert
publishing house says that it’s just the
way language evolves.
“We always had many expressions to
describe `French-kissing,’ like `kissing
at length in the mouth,’ but it’s true,
we’ve never had one single word,” she
The term “French kiss” — once also
called a “Florentine kiss” — is popularly
considered to have been brought back to
the English-speaking world by soldiers
returning from Europe after World War I.
At the time, the French had a reputation
for more adventurous sexual practices.
Laporte said “galocher” was a slang
term that’s been around for a while “but
only now is it being officially recog-
nized in a French dictionary.”

Tyler Schaefer found the neatly stacked
bills Saturday in the room where he and
his father, Cody Schaefer, were staying
at a hotel near the airport, The Kansas

driver and mechanic from Rapid City,
S.D., meets his former wife in Kansas
City every year to get his three children
for summer vacation.
Cody Schaefer said Tyler, a Cub Scout,

Schaefer said after they checked
into their room Saturday, Tyler
began opening all the drawers, and it
wasn’t too long before Tyler
announced: “I found money!”
Schaefer thought maybe his son had
found a forgotten $10 bill, but when he
looked closer he saw the stack of bills
totaling $10,000. He wondered if the
bills were fake, but saw they had the
appropriate watermarks and seemed
Hero dog released
from veterinary hospital
SAN FRANCISCO — Afamed dog that
lost her snout and upper jaw saving two
girls’ lives is heading back to the
Philippines after treatment at a
California hospital.
The dog — named Kabang — was
released Monday from the University of
California, Davis veterinary hospital.
Kabang had her snout and upper jaw
sheared off in December 2011 when she
jumped in front of a motorcycle in the
Philippines. Newspapers in the
Philippines reported she saved the lives
of her owner’s daughter and niece, who
were apparently in the path of the
oncoming cycle.
UC Davis veterinary professor Frank
Verstraete says doctors were able to heal
her wounds and treat other ailments dur-
ing her seven-month stay at the hospi-
tal, but unable to reconstruct her snout
and jaw.

Diana Hernandez didn’t know she was mov-
ing to California.
Twelve years old at the time, Hernandez
thought she was taking a trip from
Michoacán, Mexico to visit her father —
who was working on the Peninsula in the
time. When the summer was coming to a
close, she started to ask questions about
when the family was going to return. That’s
when Hernandez learned she was going to
enroll at Cesar Chavez Elementary School in
East Palo Alto. It was a lot of change for
Hernandez, particularly in terms of language.
Hernandez, who is now 18 and about to
graduate from Woodside High School, said
she’s quite proud of learning English. She
didn’t know it when she first started school
but was determined to learn. After about two
years, she had a mastery grasp on the lan-
After getting comfortable at her new
school, Hernandez transferred to Woodside.
She liked the school but it was much bigger
and required her to make new friends. She was
shy most of the time.
Principal Diane Burbank said Hernandez
has worked hard to not only master English
but is taking French 3 this year.
Her counselor, Sarah Grace Vann, said
“Diana embodies studiousness.”
During sophomore year, Hernandez joined
Advancement Via Individual Determination,
known as AVID, which offers college prepa-
ration for students in fourth grade through
high school. While Hernandez has older sis-
ters who went to college, she’ll be the first to
attend a university in the states. As a result,
AVID has been a helpful way to navigate the
system and prepare for college.
Also during sophomore year, Hernandez’s
father was killed in a car accident. She and her
mom moved in with family who lived in the
area. It was difficult at first but Hernandez said
she went on with school knowing that’s what
he would want her to do. The family original-
ly relocated for the better opportunities.
During junior year, Hernandez gave com-
munity soccer a try but realized it wasn’t her
sport. She didn’t enjoy running or being a
goalie and having balls flying at her. She did
enjoy getting more involved with her com-
Through a friend, Hernandez learned about
a summer program at the Boys & Girls Club
in Redwood City. She took part and now still
supports the organization and helps with
community service.
Communities and cultures have always
been of interest to Hernandez. She was
intrigued by the differences between the cul-
ture of her hometown in Mexico compared to
her new home in East Palo Alto. Along those
lines, her interest was piqued by behavior. As
such, she plans to study anthropology at San
Francisco State University this summer.
Hernandez isn’t quite sure what kind of job
that will lead to, but she’s excited to explore
the possibilities.
Woodside High School’s graduation will be
held at 10 a.m. Friday, June 7 at the school’s
stadium, 199 Churchill Ave. Tickets are not
required. Gates open at 8 a.m.

Three rob Cathay
Bank in Millbrae
Three males eluded police after rob-
bing a Millbrae bank yesterday after-
noon, a San Mateo County sheriff’s
deputy said.
The men robbed the Cathay Bank
located at 1095 El Camino Real at
1:48 p.m., sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca
Rosenblatt said.
The three suspects got away in a
silver or cream-colored four-door car,
Rosenblatt said.
They were last seen driving north
on Broadway, she said.
Teen caught bloody-handed,
arrested on suspicion of burglary
A 17-year-old was arrested on sus-
picion of burglary Sunday after he
was allegedly seen fleeing from a
home with bloody hands, according
to South San Francisco police.
Police were called to a home on
the 400 block of Hemlock Avenue
around 6:40 a.m. on a report of a
burglary in progress.
The resident reported seeing a sus-
pect fleeing the home on foot with
bloody hands, police said.
Officers located a 17-year-old male
several blocks away matching the
description, and arrested him with the
assistance of a police K-9 after he
allegedly resisted arrest, police said.
The suspect was positively identi-
fied by the victim, and then treated at
a local hospital for minor lacerations
and bite marks on his right ankle,
police said.
He was later booked into Hillcrest
Juvenile Hall.
San Mateo police
search for bank robber
Police are searching for a man who
robbed a bank in San Mateo yesterday
afternoon, a police sergeant said.
The man entered the Wells Fargo
Bank at 2950 El Camino Real just
after noon, San Mateo police Sgt.
Dave Norris said.
The man is described as black, in
his 40s, about 6 feet tall, clean
shaven and thin. No weapon was
seen, but he indicated he had one,
according to police.
Investigation leads to
seizure of counterfeit goods
A four-month long investigation
led to the seizure of more than 400
pieces of counterfeit designer hand-
bags, wallets, sunglasses, watches
and jewelry from Nicky’s European
Fashion at 1419 Burlingame Ave. in
downtown Burlingame.
Police made several undercover pur-
chases over the course of the investi-
gation and, after having the items
confirmed counterfeit, went back and
seized another 400 additional items
they believed to be counterfeit,
according to Burlingame police.
No arrests have been made but the
case has been forwarded to the San
Mateo County District Attorney’s
Office for possible prosecution.
State parks system
By Tracie Cone
SACRAMENTO — The California state parks system, beset
by financial problems and scandal, is launching a study com-
mission that leaders hope will reshape the system and restore
public confidence and financial stability.
The group of private sector business leaders will study
everything from how big the park system should be, to
whether individual parks can do a better job generating rev-
enue, and if the current practice of promoting only law
enforcement rangers to leadership positions has led to a lack
of innovation at the top.
“Everything is going to be on the table,” John Laird, secre-
tary of the Department of Natural Resources, told the
Associated Press.
On Monday, Laird announced formation of the independent
Parks Forward Commission, a privately financed panel that
will study how to revamp the parks system for 18 months. It
comes a year after scandals and problems threatened to shutter
a quarter of the state’s 280 parks.
Laird will appoint up to a dozen leaders from business,
finance, public policy and arts communities to examine the
structure of the department and assess future needs for a state
of 38 million people and growing.
“They have to be intellectually honest and creative in com-
ing up with solutions, especially in how we are organized,”
said Anthony Jackson, a retired Marine Corps major general
appointed last fall to lead the parks department out of its trou-
Jackson already has hired new top management and is look-
ing at other changes. Staff is testing technology that allows
visitors to swipe credit cards to pay for entrance and parking,
rather than collecting cash and driving it to the bank as is
done now in what Jackson called “1950s technology.”
Jackson also is looking at making park passes more acces-
sible by selling them at retail sporting goods outlets, as fish-
ing and hunting licenses are.

Tuesday • June 4, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Paul Larson
country’s economic
roller-coaster ride
has been interesting
and historic for
sure, but also very
troubling for many
families who’ve not
been as financially stable as others.
Recently though I’ve been observing a
phenomenon with those we serve at the
be too early to confirm, but it appears that
there is a general state of confidence with
many families, along with the decisions and
choices they make during funeral
arrangements. Yes, I know you are thinking
that “confidence” is not a term you would
use to coincide with “funeral arrangements”,
but it appears to me that people I see are
tending to be more financially assured than
during the deepest years of “The Great
They say that the two things you can’t
avoid are “death and taxes”. With that in
mind, during the economic downturn I saw a
very noticeable sense of “thrift” and
“prudence” with a lot of families who
experienced a death during that period.
Still, those who tended to “cost shop” at
various funeral homes selected CHAPEL
OF THE HIGHLANDS to handle funeral or
cremation arrangements. These families
found comfort with our service, and notably
with our more economic cost structure.
Now, lately the trend with families and
their funeral choices reminds me of the days
way before the recession hit. It’s not that
people are utilizing their funds differently,
spending more or spending less, but that
they are more assertive and confident when
using their wallet. Seeing this over and over
gives me a good indication that something in
the economic climate is changing compared
to not that long ago.
Even though many of our honorable
elected officials in Sacramento and
Washington D.C. appear to be as inflexible
with economic issues as always, the air of
confidence with the families I’ve been
dealing with means to me that these people
are feeling less pressured financially.
It is well known that when businesses do
well they hire more employees, and when
those employees are confident they will
spend their money on goods and services.
In turn, the companies that provide goods
and services will need competent employees
to create more goods, give more services,
and so on…making a positive circle for a
healthy economy. In relation to that, after a
long period of U.S. manufacturing jobs
being sent over-seas there is news of a
growing number of companies bringing this

SACRAMENTO — State Treasurer Bill
Lockyer, a leading California Democrat for
decades, announced Monday that he will
retire from elected office when his term
expires in early 2015.
Lockyer’s announcement means he won’t
run for controller next year as planned.
Instead, the 72-year-old politician said he’s
looking forward to starting a new phase of
his life.
“It’s tough to leave a career I have loved,”
he said in a statement. “It’s been an excit-
ing, fulfilling and rewarding 45 years. I’ve
never felt anything but honored and privi-
leged to serve my community and this state.
And I cherish the people I’ve worked with
and the friends I’ve made along the way. But
it’s time to make the break and explore
other opportunities.”
Lockyer, who has held an elected position
since 1968, previously served as attorney
general and Senate president pro tem in the
Legislature. He began his political career on
the San Leandro Unified School District
He said his decision was not influenced by
his wife, Nadia Lockyer, who resigned as an
Alameda County supervisor amid a series of
public substance abuse and relationship
Lockyer said he’ll remain active in public
policy but doesn’t know in what capacity.
It marks the first departure from a group of
aging top-tier Democrats, including 75-
year-old Gov. Jerry Brown. However,
Lockyer’s retirement announcement opens
opportunities for younger Democratic hope-

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Monday
voted to make modest changes to the way
international food aid is delivered, a much
scaled-back version of an overhaul proposed
by President Barack Obama earlier this year.
Senators adopted an amendment by voice
vote to a wide-ranging farm bill Monday that
would slightly boost dollars to buy locally-
grown food close to needy areas abroad.
Currently, most food aid is grown in the
United States and shipped to developing
countries, an approach the Obama adminis-
tration says is inefficient.
The Senate farm bill would allocate $40
million annually for a local purchase pro-
gram - an increase from current dollars, but
still a small portion of the $1.8 billion
spent on food aid. The amendment spon-
sored by Republican Mike Johanns, of
Nebraska, and Democrat Chris Coons, of
Delaware, would boost that to $60 million
Many food aid groups have long argued
that buying food abroad would be quicker,
less expensive and more beneficial to local
farmers than the current method that benefit s
U.S. farmers and shippers.

WASHINGTON — A sharply divided
Supreme Court on Monday cleared the way
for police to take a DNAswab from anyone
they arrest for a serious crime, endorsing a
practice now followed by more than half the
states as well as the federal government.
The justices differed strikingly on how
big a step that was.
“Taking and analyzing a cheek swab of
the arrestee DNAis, like fingerprinting and
photographing, a legitimate police book-
ing procedure that is reasonable under the
Fourth Amendment,” Justice Anthony
Kennedy wrote for the court’s five-justice
majority. The ruling backed a Maryland law
allowing DNA swabbing of people arrested
for serious crimes.
But the four dissenting justices said the
court was allowing a major change in police
powers, with conservative Justice Antonin
Scalia predicting the limitation to “serious”
crimes would not last.
“Make no mistake about it: Because of
today’s decision, your DNAcan be taken and
entered into a national database if you are
ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for
whatever reason,” Scalia said in a sharp dis-
sent which he read aloud in the courtroom.
“This will solve some extra crimes, to be
sure. But so would taking your DNA when
you fly on an airplane — surely the TSA
must know the ‘identity’ of the flying pub-
lic. For that matter, so would taking your
children’s DNA when they start public
Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler
agreed that there’s nothing stopping his
state from expanding DNA collection from
those arrested for serious crimes to those
arrested for lesser ones like shoplifting.
“I don’t advocate expanding the crimes
for which you take DNA, but the legal
analysis would be the same,” Gansler said.
“The reason why Maryland chooses to only
take DNAof violent criminals is that you’re
more likely to get a hit on a previous case.
Shoplifters don’t leave DNAbehind, rapists
do, and so you’re much more likely to get
the hit in a rape case.”
Twenty-eight states and the federal gov-
ernment now take DNA swabs after arrests.
But a Maryland court said it was illegal for
that state to take Alonzo King’s DNA with-
out approval from a judge, ruling that King
had “a sufficiently weighty and reasonable
expectation of privacy against warrantless,
suspicionless searches” under the Fourth
Amendment to the Constitution.
The high court’s decision reverses that
ruling and reinstates King’s rape convic-
tion, which came after police took his DNA
during an unrelated arrest.
Kennedy, who is often considered the
court’s swing vote, wrote the decision
along with conservative-leaning Chief
Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel
Alito and Clarence Thomas. They were
joined by liberal-leaning Justice Stephen
Breyer, while the dissenters were the con-
servative-leaning Scalia and liberal Justices
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and
Elena Kagan.
Kennedy called collecting DNA useful for
police in identifying individuals.
“The use of DNA for identification is no
different than matching an arrestee’s face to
a wanted poster of a previously unidentified
suspect, or matching tattoos to known
gang symbols to reveal a criminal affilia-
tion, or matching the arrestee’s fingerprints
to those recovered from a crime scene,”
Kennedy said. “DNA is another metric of
identification used to connect the arrestee
with his or her public persona, as reflected
in records of his or her actions that are
available to police.”
But the American Civil Liberties Union
said the court’s ruling created “a gaping new
exception to the Fourth Amendment.”
“The Fourth Amendment has long been
understood to mean that the police cannot
search for evidence of a crime — and all
nine justices agreed that DNA testing is a
search — without individualized suspi-
cion,” said Steven R. Shapiro, the group’s
legal director. “Today’s decision eliminates
that crucial safeguard. At the same time, it’s
important to recognize that other state laws
on DNA testing are even broader than
Maryland’s and may present issues that were
not resolved by today’s ruling.”

WASHINGTON — Rebuffing President
Barack Obama’s latest plea, House
Republicans on Monday proposed keeping
open the military-run prison at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by barring the
administration from transferring its terror
suspects to the United States or a foreign
country such as Yemen.
The provisions dealing with the fate of
the remaining 166 prisoners are part of a
defense policy bill drafted by Armed
Services Committee Chairman Howard P.
“Buck” McKeon, R-Calif. The chairman
released the bill Monday, two days before
Republicans and Democrats on the com-
mittee will vote on it.
Overall, the bill would authorize $638
billion for the military in the fiscal year
beginning Oct. 1, including $86 billion
for war costs. The committee responded to
concerns that the military was headed
toward a readiness crisis due to automatic
spending cuts by adding nearly $5 billion
beyond the president’s budget request for
training programs, equipment mainte-
nance, spare parts and more.
The final bill is likely to include addi-
tional provisions addressing the epidemic
of sexual assaults in the military, missile
defense and weapons programs, with most
reflecting the will of Republicans who
control the House. The full chamber is
expected to vote on the bill this summer
and then work out differences when the
Democratic-run Senate passes its version.
“The bill restores vital readiness pro-
grams, invests in capabilities to meet the
threats of the future, and supports our
troops and their families,” McKeon said in
a statement.
Addressing a range of policy issues, the
chairman’s legislation would block the
U.S. from spending $2.6 billion to train
and equip Afghan security forces until the
Defense and State departments have certi-
fied to Congress that the two countries have
a bilateral security agreement governing
the presence of U.S. forces there after the
current combat mission ends in 2014.
McKeon’s bill also urges the Obama
administration to “fully consider all cours-
es of action” to remove President Syrian
President Bashar Assad’s regime from
power. The legislation does not endorse
providing weapons to the rebel forces in
Syria, as the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee did last month.
Less than two weeks ago, Obama
renewed his 2008 campaign promise to
close the Guantanamo prison. He argued
that the indefinite detentions with little
prospect of charges or a trial flouts the rule
of law and said terrorists have used the
naval detention center as a recruiting tool.

TRENTON, N.J. — The next time a
flight attendant reminds you there’s no
smoking or you witness a teenager
getting carded at a liquor store, think
of Frank Lautenberg.
The liberal Democratic senator from
New Jersey left his mark on the every-
day lives of millions of Americans,
whether they know it or not. In the
1980s, he was a driving force behind
the laws that banned smoking on most
U.S. flights and made 21 the drinking
age in all 50 states.
Lautenberg, a multimillionaire busi-
nessman who became an accomplished
— if often underestimated — politi-
cian, died Monday at a New York hos-
pital after suffering complications
from viral pneumonia. His funeral will
be held Wednesday morning in New
York City.
At 89, he was the oldest person in
the Senate and the last of 115 World
War II veterans to serve there.
“He improved the lives of countless
Americans with his commitment to our
nation’s health and safety,” President
Barack Obama said in a statement,
“from improving our public trans-
portation to protecting citizens from
gun violence to ensuring that members
of our military and their families get
the care they deserve.”
The Senate observed a moment of
silence in Lautenberg’s memory, and at
the White House the flag was lowered
to half-staff.
Lautenberg served nearly three
decades in the Senate in two stints,
beginning with an upset victory in
1982 over Republican Rep. Millicent
Fenwick, the pipe-smoking, pearl-
wearing patrician who was the model
for the cartoon character Lacey
Davenport in “Doonesbury. ”

Prosecutor: Manning let
secrets into enemy hands
By David Dishneau and Pauline Jelinek
FORTMEADE, Md. — Pfc. Bradley Manning put U.S. mil-
itary secrets into the hands of Osama bin Laden himself, pros-
ecutors said Monday as the Army intelli-
gence analyst went on trial over leaking
hundreds of thousands of classified docu-
Manning’s lawyers countered by argu-
ing that he was a “young, naive but good-
intentioned” soldier whose struggle to fit
in as a gay man in the military made him
feel he “needed to do something to make a
difference in this world.”
Manning, 25, has admitted turning over
the material to the anti-secrecy website
WikiLeaks, pleading guilty earlier this year to charges that
could bring 20 years behind bars. But the military pressed
ahead with a court-martial on more serious charges, including
aiding the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence.
Prosecutors said they will present evidence that bin Laden
requested and obtained from another al-Qaida member
Afghanistan battlefield reports and State Department cables
published by WikiLeaks.
“This is a case about a soldier who systematically harvest-
ed hundreds of thousands of documents from classified data-
bases and then dumped that information onto the Internet into
the hands of the enemy,” prosecutor Capt. Joe Morrow said.
He said the case is “about what happens when arrogance
meets access to sensitive information.”
Wearing his dress blue uniform, the slightly built Manning
peered through his small eyeglasses at a slide show of the
prosecutor’s hour-long opening statement, watching on a
laptop computer at the defense table. The slide show also was
projected on three larger screens in the courtroom, which had
seats for only about 50 people.
Later, almost motionless, the soldier from Crescent, Okla.,
sat forward in his chair, looking toward his defense attorney,
David Coombs, throughout his 25-minute opening state-
Coombs said Manning struggled to do the right thing as “a
humanist,” a word engraved on his custom-made dog tags. As
an analyst in Baghdad, Manning had access to hundreds of
millions of documents but selectively leaked material,
Coombs said.

Bay Bridge bolts
In his letter published in the May

and their use of substandard imported

the mark on the blame for the shoddy

Regime change
In her articulate commentary in the
Daily Journal (Tuesday, May 28), let-
ter writer Patricia Gray made a couple
of significant points that caught my
attention, i.e., we should not have
more than a hundred military bases
about the world, but instead should
mind own business.
Whoops — Ms. Gray misses the
point that it is our collectively per-
ceived business to maintain our hege-
mony around the globe, however mis-
guided the perception.
Next, she thinks that we should
insist that our government should
heed our voices, but since our govern-
ment is corrupt, it’s time for a regime
Unfortunately, Ms. Gray doesn’t
realize that our democracy has run its
course — it’s over — has been for
quite a few years.
Currently, we are witnessing the
failing presidency of Mr. Obama —
he simply doesn’t have the backbone
needed of a chief executive.
Regime change that Ms. Gray sug-
gests? How about a military coup?
First order of business after a
“benevolent” military takeover ought
to be to remove money from politics
— absolutely.
Second, gun control must be recog-
nized as a farce — instead, gun confis-
cation should be immediately imple-

GE and fracking
The article “Industry giant GE aims
to improve fracking,” in the May 28
edition of the Daily Journal was about
the GE corporation and fracking. My
concern with this is, Oklahoma has
proven fracking does not harm any-
thing. Oklahoma has been fracking
since 1949 without any confirmed
cases of water contamination or land
problems. Further, if a little research
is done, it would be found that the
U.S. Geological Survey has in the
past said fracking does not or will not
cause any undue problems. So with
that information at hand, why are the
taxpayers going to blow millions in
research grants? I would assume, for
GE to find out something we already
know. Why not just go to Oklahoma
and the USGS and do a little reading?
Seems that would be a lot cheaper.

Who is to blame?
I wholeheartedly agree with Mr.
Guerreo’s comments on the IRS doing
their job (“My two cents” letter to the
editor in the June 3 edition of the
Daily Journal).
Laws were written and followed, for
years, by 501(c)4 organizations. I’m
sure that tea party organizations are
not the only ones who fall under this
category. The real issue is profiling.
One particular donor had been audited
on three separate occasions, at this
own expense, with no fault found.
From another perspective, let’s
assume that Mr. Guerrero fit the pro-
file of a “person of interest,” and was
hauled in by the police for question-
ing, on three separate occasions. Of
course, Mr. Guerrero, an upstanding
and law-abiding citizen, has done no
wrong whatsoever, and is guilty of
nothing. In the end, it is all political,
as competing entities continue to find
fault with the other side. Should Mr.
Guerrero feel that tax cheating is
going on, then he should blame the
folks who wrote the code, and not
those that legally take advantage of
it. How many deductions do you hope

Letters to the editor
The Star-Ledger, Newark, N.J.
ou’ve heard it said many
times that some of the worst
assaults on public welfare and
the national interest are not the
actions that are illegal but those that,
while odious, are strictly legal.
Not many years go by without some
additional support for that sad truth.
Now we have more — the stunning
success of Apple, perhaps the most
admired American corporation, in
avoiding a tax sum calculated in one
account as roughly 30 percent of what
it owed this country on its vast prof-
i t s.
How did Apple do it? Easy.
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, was any-
thing but apologetic about his com-
pany’s tax avoidance in an appearance
before Congress in May. Apple, he
pointed out, paid $6 billion in U.S.
taxes last year and expects to pay
more next year. And the tactics taken
to shelter profits, he said, were neces-
sary steps to protect the interests of
Apple shareholders.
The real problem, Cook said, is the
relatively high U.S. corporate tax rate
and an onerously complex tax code.
The tax code is admittedly a night-
mare. And we can argue about whether
the corporate rate’s too high.
But one thing that’s indisputable is
that almost no big business pays the
full corporate tariff. Why else do you
think their lobbyists are million-
Cook endorsed the idea of tax
reform even though he said it would
raise Apple’s tax tab, which was
mighty nice of him, considering
giants such as Apple will likely domi-
nate any new tax debate that involves
our money-hungry federal legislators.
How can we know that? Because we
did it once before, in the 1980s. Give
us lower rates, the corporate world
promised, and we’ll accept elimina-
tion of loopholes. Sounded good. And
for a time it was. But, alas, over the
long haul, many of the loopholes
crept back in — lobbyists again —
but the rates never went back to where
they’d been.

appy LGBTQQI Pride Month, everybody! Just in
case the news escaped you, the county Board of
Supervisors Tuesday morning is set to declare
June 2013 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered,
Queer, Questioning and Intersex Pride month.
Whew. I hope I didn’t forget any of the letters in that
ever-growing acronym. First, let me commend the coun-
ty on giving the non-straights a shoutout and further
offer a high-five to the
concept of inclusive-
ness on both the coun-
ty’s part and the world-
wide pride movement
which continues widen-
ing its reach. As the
proposed proclamation
states, diversity is a
great strength and the
country strives to pro-
mote the principles of
equality and justice. In
other words, everybody
has inalienable rights
— life, liberty, pursuit
of happiness — not just
those who fit the heterosexual mold.
That said, LGBTQQI? Really? The first four letters and
perhaps even one of the “q’s” (I’m thinking “question-
ing”) is pretty clear and widely accepted. But if the
entire label hadn’t been spelled out, the other two let-
ters would have thrown me for a loop. The acronym is
getting out of control. It doesn’t roll off the tongue; it
barely fits on a T-shirt.
Acronyms are supposed to provide a user-friendly
shorthand for phrases, groups and labels that on their
own are too long and clunky. The acronyms themselves
aren’t supposed to be so long one wish the shortened
version also had its own condensed version.
Even when short and sweet, some acronyms admitted-
ly still are problematic especially in the world of gov-
ernment. C/CAG — this SWF can never remember if it is
the City/County Association of Governments or the
other way around? ERAF? Print journalists shudder with
every budgetary story requiring the actual spelling out
of and definition of educational revenue augmentation
fund. Some acronyms become so ingrained in history
and culture, they remain in place long after the accepted
usage of individual words have passed. The NAACP, for
example. Those last two letters represent a label that
isn’t palatable any longer yet the organization contin-
ues to thrive without full-fledged rebranding.
The expansion of text messaging is only adding to
the widespread use of acronyms. People once LOL’d.
Then they LMAO followed by ROFL. Now, OMG, they
do every sort of X,Y and Z, all of which involve short-
ened lingo that IDK.
But while this shorthand silliness might work on a
smartphone — especially for drivers who refuse to stop
texting while driving or those who manage to write
novel equivalents with one thumb — a never-ending
trail of letters in an attempt to address every known
demographic is a little groan-inducing. The desire to be
comprehensive is a great goal and one that should be
met, particularly when addressing populations that
might still feel on the fringe. But LFBTQQI is too
much. What happens when another set of individuals
with different characteristics needs adding? How many
letters is just too much?
Granted, the simple solution is a basic “non-
straights” label but that is both inelegant and inaccu-
rate. Who is to say the questioning don’t end up identi-
fying that way ultimately? Why do we assume intersex
individuals (once known by the term hermaphrodite)
don’t also?
Why not then take a cue from a growing number of
school organizations established to promote tolerance
and acceptance of everybody along the spectrum. Their
answer is GLOW: Gay, Lesbian or Whatever. The catch-
all acronym is catchy, it is accurate and it closes up any
loopholes or inadvertent exclusions possible with the
LGBTQQI moniker.
It also helps stave off the chance people will look at
the mysterious acronym and ask WTF?

Big movers

NEWYORK — For now, bad news is
good for the stock market.
Investors judged that the latest weak
economic reports will make it more
likely that the Federal Reserve will
continue to stimulate the economy and
support a rally on Wall Street.
On Monday, a measure of U.S. manu-
facturing fell in May to its lowest level
since June 2009 as overseas
economies slumped and weak business
spending reduced new orders to facto-
That helped convince investors that
the Fed will hold off from slowing
down its $85 billion bond-buying pro-
gram. Speculation that the central
bank was set to ease that stimulus, a
major support for this year’s rally in
stocks, has caused trading to become
volatile in the last two weeks.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell
in the morning after the manufacturing
report was published at 10 a.m. It
moved between gains and losses for
much of the day, then climbed deci-
sively in the last hour of trading.
The “good news is bad news” inter-
pretation of economic reports may
support stocks in the short term, but at
the end of the day the economy has to
keep improving for stocks to reach
new highs, said Alec Young, a global
equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ.
“This was a big miss on the ISM
report,” said Young. “Regardless of
what it means for the Fed, ultimately
you’re buying a stream of earnings and
you want to see the economy doing
Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
President Dennis Lockhart also helped
allay investors’ concerns that the cen-
tral bank was poised to stop the stimu-
lus. He told Bloomberg Television
Monday in an interview that Fed offi-
cials remain committed to the stimulus
The S&P 500 index climbed 9.68
points to 1,640.42, up 0.6 percent.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose
138.46 points to 15,254.03, a gain of
0.9 percent. The Dow got a boost from
Merck, which rose 4 percent.
The Nasdaq composite, which is
heavily weighted with technology
stocks, rose 9.45 points to 3,465.37,
an increase of 0.3 percent.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note ended the day barley changed
from late Friday at 2.13 percent. The
yield climbed as high as 2.17 percent
in early trading, then fell as low as
2.09 percent after the manufacturing
report was released.
As Treasury yields fell, rich divi-
dend-paying stocks like electric utili-
ties and phone companies moved
Those sectors, so-called defensive
stocks, had been investor favorites in
the first quarter. They declined in May
as bond yields rose.
Despite the advance Monday, signs
are emerging that this year’s rally may
be starting to falter. The S&P 500
index closed higher for a seventh
straight month in May, but the index
also logged its first back-to-back
weekly declines since November. On
Friday the Dow plunged 208 points,
its worst drop in six weeks.
The Dow is still up 16.4 percent this
year, and the S&P 500 is 15 percent
higher. Stocks have surged as compa-
nies reported record earnings and on
optimism that the housing market is
recovering and hiring is improving.
In commodities trading, oil climbed
$1.48, or 1.6 percent, to $93.45 a bar-
rel. Gold rose $18.90, or 1.4 percent,
to $1,411.90 an ounce. The dollar fell
against the euro and against the
Japanese yen. The U.S. currency
dropped back below 100 yen for the
first time in three weeks.
Among stocks making moves:
Merck led the Dow higher after news
that the drugmaker announced encour-
aging clinical results for a medicine to
treat skin cancer. Merck rose $1.75 to
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store
rose $5.82, or 6.5 percent, to $95.28.
The restaurant chain said its fiscal
third-quarter profit rose 30 percent as
higher prices on its menus helped
increase sales.
Why bad news makes the stock market happy
SAN FRANCISCO — Online game maker
Zynga Inc. said Monday that it is cutting
520 jobs, about 18 percent of its workforce,
in a cost-saving move designed to help it
adapt to consumers shifting game play from
computers to mobile devices.
Zynga said it expects the move to save
about $70 million to $80 million in annual
costs. But the San Francisco-based compa-
ny behind “FarmVille” and “Words Wi t h
Friends” also now expects a worse loss in
the second quarter than it previously antici-
pated, as well as weak bookings, which will
weigh on future revenue.
Zynga’s stock plunged 12 percent to
close at $2.99 on the Nasdaq stock market
after trading was halted twice on Monday.
Its shares have traded below $4 since about
July 2012, after debuting at $10 in its
December 2011 initial public offering.
The cost-cutting, which also includes
some office closures, is “proactive” and
done from a position of financial strength,
Zynga CEO Mark Pincus said in a blog post.
“By reducing our cost structure today we
will offer our teams the runway they need to
take risks and develop these breakthrough
new social experiences,” he said.
Zynga said it now expects a net loss in
the quarter through June of $28.5 million to
$39 million, worse than its estimate for a
net loss between $26.5 million and $36.5
million it predicted at the end of April.
It also said bookings, which reflect in-
game purchases of virtual goods, would
come in at the lower end of its previously
estimated range between $180 million and
$190 million.
Analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush
Securities said investors are more concerned
about lackluster revenue than any savings
from the cuts.
“You can’t save your way to prosperity, ”
he said. “The market is telling you that it’s
not confident that revenues are going to
grow. ”
Before the announcement, analysts
polled by FactSet were already forecasting
that annual revenue for Zynga would shrink
to $944 million by the end of the year,
down from $1.28 billion in 2012.
The cuts come on the heels of earlier
efforts to reduce overhead as demand for its
games on the social-networking site
Facebook fades and more people shift to
playing games on mobile devices, where
the company finds it more difficult to gener-
ate revenue.
Zynga to cut 520 jobs amid performance woes
By Stephen Ohlemacher
WASHINGTON — His agency under relent-
less fire, the new head of the Internal Revenue
Service acknowledged to Congress on
Monday that American taxpayers no longer
trust the IRS amid a growing number of scan-
dals — from the targeting of conservative
political groups to lavish spending on
employee conferences.
But Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel
declared he was “committed to restoring that
trust.” He said he has installed new leadership
at the agency and is conducting a thorough
review of what went wrong and how to fix it.
He promised the transparency that was
lacking for several years as tea party groups
complained about harassment by the IRS,
only to be met with denials from the
“We must have the trust of the American
taxpayer. Unfortunately, that trust has been
broken,” Werfel told a House Appropriations
subcommittee in his first public appearance
since taking over the agency nearly two
weeks ago. “The agency stands ready to con-
front the problems that occurred, hold
accountable those who acted inappropriately,
be open about what happened, and perma-
nently fix these problems so that such mis-
steps do not occur again.”
“It has to start,” Werfel added, “with a
recognition that a trust has been violated.”
Werfel testified at a difficult time for the
agency. Criticized from inside and outside the
government, Werfel went to Capitol Hill to
ask for a big budget increase. President
Barack Obama has requested a 9 percent
increase in IRS spending for the budget year
that starts in October, in part to help pay for
the implementation of the new health care
House Republicans have voted 37 times to
eliminate, defund or partly scale back the
Affordable Care Act, and many are not eager
to increase funding for an agency that will
play a central role in enforcing compliance.

Day at Disneyland now more than $90
ANAHEIM — When you wish upon a star,
be sure to bring your wallet. Disneyland has
raised its ticket prices.
Disney said in a statement that starting
Sunday, a one-day adult ticket to one park
will cost $92, a $5 increase. Kids’ tickets
also jumped $5, to $87. The prices apply to
either Disneyland Park or Disney California
Adventure Park. Buyers of annual passes
will see similar increases.
The Disneyland statement says the price
hikes were brought on by a variety of fac-
tors, but the tickets represent a great value
given the breadth and quality of attractions
and entertainment at the parks.
Business brief

With some ink on paper, more than a
handful of Serra Padres made it official: the
blue and gold will be well represented at the
next level.
Four senior wrestlers, one football player
and one cross-country runner from Serra in
San Mateo signed their letters of intent at
the final ceremony of its kind for the class
of 2013 last week.
According to Serra athletic director Dean
Ayood, 2012-13 marks the most student-
athlete signings in a single school year for
the Padres — when talking athletics at
Serra, that’s saying something special.
Cross county runner Joey Berriatua and
his family were unable to attend the signing
ceremony, as he was at the track and field
state finals in Clovis. Berriatua’s cross
country coach, Will McCarthy, sent a state-
ment about Berriatua and his running suc-
cess. Berriatua was awarded the Athletic
Department 2013 Shea Award. He will attend
Santa Clara University next year.

Serving The Peninsula
for over 25years
By Michael Wagaman
ALAMEDA — Nick Roach lined
up at middle linebacker, barked out
a coverage adjustment, then quick-
ly shifted behind the left side of
the defensive line before bursting
through to pressure Oakland rook-
ie quarterback Tyler Wilson.
After three years of getting little
production out of the position, the
Raiders think they’ve found a rem-
edy in the 27-year-old veteran
Coach Dennis Allen has been
gushing about Roach ever since
the team signed him as a free agent
in March as part of a defensive
overhaul which included dumping
former first-round draft pick
Rolando McClain.
“Nick’s highly intelligent and
he’s athletic,” Allen said Monday.
“He’s done a nice job of kind of
being the quarterback of our
defense. He really has a passion
about leading that team ... and he’s
got some things that he can do
from a coverage standpoint that
lends some flexibility to us.”
Roach spent the past six sea-
sons mostly playing on the
strong side of Chicago’s defense
while pulling spot duty as a back-
up to middle linebacker Brian
Urlacher. When Urlacher missed
the final four games of the 2012
season with a hamstring injury,
Roach took over and played well.
The Bears had hoped to re-sign
Roach in the offseason but the two
sides failed to reach an accord.
When he became a free agent,
Oakland general manager Reggie
McKenzie was among the first to
The Raiders have no intentions
of moving him around, either.
After releasing the troubled and
unproductive McClain in the off-
season, the plan is to put Roach in
the middle and leave him there.
Roach averaged 46 tackles over
six years in Chicago while split-
ting time on special teams. He’ll
do the same in Oakland but
expects his production to increase
now that he’s settled in inside.
“The biggest difference is we’re
a lot more multiple,” Roach said.
“Chicago is about as basic as it
gets. We played pretty simple.
Everybody knew what we were
going to do, and we knew they
“I didn’t really know much about
what had been going on (in
Oakland) but I did know the staff
was coming in trying to get
things right, whatever that meant.
They felt, and I felt, we could be a
part of that together. ”
Almost as impressive as his off-
season workouts has been the
rapid pace at which Roach estab-
lished himself as a presence in an
Oakland locker room that has been
devoid of leadership for some time
It hasn’t been easy.
Roach acknowledged few of his
new teammates had even heard of
him before he signed with the
Raiders in March.
Veteran defensive end Andre
Carter, who was re-signed by
Oakland in the offseason primari-
ly to help with the leadership
void, knew of Roach and wasn’t
surprised to see the 6-foot-1, 235-
pounder take control as quickly as
he did.
“It goes to show how he wants
to be known as,” Carter said. “The
Mike linebacker is the engine of
the defense, so for him to be vocal
is very vital because we need that
on the field as well as off the field.
He gets the communication to
everyone, the defensive line, the
cornerbacks, safeties. If you don’t
have that, you’re not going to be

practice but remains sidelined after
undergoing surgery to remove scar
tissue from his abdominal region.

but we still feel comfortable that

effort to cut down on concussions,
head trauma and other injuries, the
Pac-12 Conference is establishing
a league-wide policy to limit the
amount of contact made during
football practices beginning this
Commissioner Larry Scott said
Monday that the conference will
limit hits to numbers “less than
what the NCAA permits,” while
many of the schools already have
their own “self-imposed limits.”
Now, there will be an across-the-
board rule in an effort to decrease
head trauma and other injuries.
“In our discussions it became
clear this is a topic our coaches are
focused on,” Scott said. “There is a
high degree of awareness about it
and a deep commitment to it. It
was a high priority. ”
Details of how the conference
will monitor each school’s hits
and contact are still being worked
out. Scott expects everything to
be in place by late July.
The Pac-12 CEO Group, made up
of school presidents, agreed on
the plan during weekend meetings
in Park City, Utah, as part of the
conference’s new comprehensive
“student-athlete health initiative”
developed to improve the health
and safety of the league’s 7,000
The meeting also included ath-
letic directors and other represen-
tatives from the 12 schools.
There have been some 200
research projects by the confer-
ence schools related to the subject
of health and safety for student-
athletes, Scott said.
“The first step here is we’re
going to be codifying new Pac-12
policies on hits and contact in
practice that are less than what the
NCAA permits,” Scott said. “We
have studied and discussed with our
coaches what progress the NFLhas
made in terms of looking at what
happens in practice and reducing
the cumulative impact and cumula-
tive hits that occur in practice, and
trying to apply policies that are
appropriate for college.”
During nine months of study of
the NFL’s efforts to decrease con-
cussions, and input from doctors
and athletic trainers, the Pac-12
decided — based on Scott’s recom-
mendation — to move forward
with a plan of its own that fits into
the “teaching” approach of col-
lege football and its NCAA-man-
dated 20-hour week rule.
After “lessons learned” last sea-
son, the Pac-12 also is working to
restructure its leadership for men’s
basketball officiating.
Scott said the conference is
thinking broadly rather than
focusing on having just one per-
son in charge.
He expects to announce more
within the next couple of weeks.
During the Pac-12 tournament,
the conference learned that former
officiating coordinator Ed Rush
had offered bounties — $5,000 or
a trip to Mexico — for any official
who disciplined Arizona coach
Sean Miller.

JONESBORO, Ga. — Former NBAAll-Star
Daron “Mookie” Blaylock has been charged
with vehicular homicide arising from a
head-on crash in suburban Atlanta, authori-
ties announced Monday.
Blaylock, 46, is also charged with driv-
ing on a suspended license and failure to
maintain his lane in the Friday crash,
Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen said.
Blaylock was driving an SUVthat crossed
the center line of Tara Boulevard — about 20
miles south of downtown Atlanta — and
struck a van, police said. Avan passenger,
43-year-old Monica Murphy, died hours
later. Her husband, who was also in the van,
was treated and released at a hospital.
Blaylock was also wanted in Spalding
County on charges of failure to appear in
court, DUI and drug possession, Allen said.
Atlanta Medical Center spokeswoman
Nicole Gustin said Blaylock was in fair con-
dition Monday. He initially was on life sup-
port at the hospital, but his condition was
Allen said police are working to deter-
mine the cause of the crash and that alcohol
doesn’t appear to be a factor. Authorities
were working to gather documents on
Blaylock’s medical history Monday.
Blaylock told investigators he blacked out
just before the wreck but wasn’t able to say
much more, Allen said. It’s unclear if he has
an attorney.
Blaylock was a first-round draft pick by
the New Jersey Nets out of Oklahoma in
He played as a guard for the Atlanta Hawks
between 1992 and 1999 and played in the
1994 NBA All-Star game. He had his best
season in 1996-97, averaging 17.4 points
and 5.9 assists. Blaylock also played for
the Golden State Warriors.

Wade matched his postseason high with 21
points, and the Heat ran away from the
Pacers 99-76 in Game 7 of the Eastern
Conference finals on Monday night.
The Heat advanced to play the San
Antonio Spurs in a series that starts
Thursday night in Miami.
Miami led by as many as 28 points, a
shocking amount for a series that had an
aggregate score of Heat 569, Pacers 564
entering Monday night. The Heat actually
trailed by six in the early going, were still
down 21-19 after the first quarter and it was
starting to look like it was going to be one
of those down-to-the-wire nights.
Not even close.
James exited with 5:08 left, shaking
retired soccer star David Beckham’s hand as
he made his way to the Heat bench for a rel-
atively subdued celebration. Not long after-
ward, security personnel started what’s
become a familiar task in Miami — sur-
rounding the court and stretching out a yel-
low rope, preparing to hold people at bay
for the looming on-court trophy presenta-
More than a few people didn’t stick around
to see the East title formally presented.
After all, it’s an all-or-nothing season for
the Heat — and this trophy isn’t the one
that will satisfy them.
Ray Allen added 10 points for Miami,
which earned its 78th victory of the season,
matching the 11th-best, single-season total
in NBAhistory.

MILWAUKEE — Coco Crisp had a leadoff
homer among his four hits and Tommy
Milone pitched in at the plate to help the
Oakland Athletics beat the Milwaukee
Brewers 10-2 on Monday night.
The surging A’s have won four consecu-
tive games and 15 of 17 to move a season-
high 11 over .500 at 35-24.
Milone (6-5) allowed five hits, struck out
four and didn’t issue a walk in seven strong
innings. He retired his first eight batters
before pitcher Marco Estrada blooped a two-
out single in the third.
Milone also took advantage of a rare
chance to bat in an interleague road game,
going 2 for 4 with an RBI and two runs
The long ball sparked the A’s to a quick 2-
0 lead.
Crisp, who reached base five times in six
plate appearances, got them started with his
10th career leadoff homer. Brandon Moss
belted a solo shot with one out in the sec-
Oakland broke it open in the fifth when it
sent 11 batters to the plate. Adouble by Jed
Lowrie drove in a run. Josh Donaldson
knocked in another with a single off reliev-
er Burke Badenhop, who entered after
Estrada left with an injury. Josh Reddick fol-
lowed with an RBI single.
Milone helped his own cause with a base
hit that scored a run for a 6-0 margin. John
Jaso added a single, his second of the
inning, to drive in two more and push the
A’s lead to eight runs.
The Brewers put an end to the shutout bid
in the fifth when Rickie Weeks hit a two-run
Estrada (4-3) lasted four innings, giving
up five runs and nine hits. He struck out
three and walked one. He departed with a left
hamstring strain after giving up the run-
scoring double to Lowrie in the fifth. The
Brewers said Estrada is day to day.
The A’s tacked on two more runs in the
seventh to close out the scoring.

The Shea Award is a sportsmanship
award given annually since 1947 to an
outstanding senior athlete at Serra.
In 1966, the award was named for

with a 58-03.
CCS double-gold medalist Maddie
Price of Menlo School ran the 400-
meter dash in 54.94. That mark was
good for a sixth-place finish.
Carlmont’s Tim Layten finished
11th in California with a 1:56.32 in
the 800-meter run.
Peninsula Athletic League ambassa-
dor Sabrina Mendoza fouled on two of
her three shots, but finished 11th in
the state with a 39-09.50.
Offensively, Bosco led the Oaks in every major statisti-
cal category including: batting average, on-base percent-
age, slugging percentage, runs (51), hits (81), doubles
(23), triples (2), home runs (15), RBI (57), total bases
(153), walks (31) and stolen bases (15).
Additionally, Bosco was the nation’s leader in slugging
percentage, total base and total bases per game (2.94), and
was second in the country in home runs with 15.
Bosco started all 52 games for the Oaks and recorded 25
multi-hit games this season including a string of six
straight from March 27 to April 5.
“I knew he was a talented player,” Menlo manager Stefan
McGovern told the Daily Journal previously. “There was no
question there. He never took a series off and never strug-
gled for more than a couple of games. I’ve never seen a
player be given almost like, the Bonds treatment — where
they were set on not letting one player beat them.”
Bosco also had three multi-home run games including a
dominating four-home run day in a doubleheader against
conference foe Corban on April 6.
In that four-game series, Bosco hammered out seven hits,
11 runs and 12 RBIs to lead the Oaks to the weekend sweep.
His remarkable 2013 campaign also included nine differ-
ent games in which he drove in three or more runs — four of
those games with five or more RBIs. His penchant for plat-
ing base runners was on full display March 27 when he went
4-for-4 with a season-best seven RBIs against La Sierra.
Defensively, Bosco was perfect on 104 attempts in right
field while showcasing his strong throwing arm with six
outfield assists.
In addition to his First Team All-America honors and
Player of the Year award, Bosco also earned accolades as a
First Team All-Conference member and a Conference Gold
Glove Award winner.
Under second-year head coach Stefan McGovern, Menlo
finished the 2013 season with a 34-18 (20-8 West) record,
good for the most wins in program history.

Madison Bumgarner got drilled in two
games of a doubleheader Saturday.
With the 2013 season a third of the
way completed, the San Francisco
starting rotation has an ERAof 4.40,
good for 13th out of the 15 teams in
the National League. In their champi-
onship years of 2010 and 2012, the
starters posted an ERA3.54 and 3.73,
respectively. This year they may be
giving up less than a run more, but
look at the results: Bumgarner is the
only starter who can say he is having
a decent season. He is currently 4-4
with a 3.46 ERA, hardly the stuff of
an ace. Barry Zito is 4-3 with a 3.88
ERA. Matt Cain has a winning record
(4-3), but is giving up nearly 5 and a
half runs per start. Lincecum is 3-5
with a slightly better ERAat 5.12,
but there is talk of sending him to the
bullpen. Before he was injured, Ryan
Vogelsong was arguably the worst
starter in the National League, giving
up over seven runs per outing.
The Giants’ struggles on the mound
make their two World Series titles in
the last three years even more special
because it just goes to show you can’t
expect near perfection from your
starters every year. Basically, the law
of averages appear to be catching up
with the Giants’ starters. Maybe all
the work they’ve had the last several
years in finally taking its toll.
When a team has built around pitch-
ing and defense — both of which
have taken a turn for the worse this
year — the struggles on the mound
are magnified.
On the flip side, the Giants’ offense
is one of the best in the National
League. The Giants lead the league in
team batting average, hitting at a
.269 clip. Their on-base percentage
of .326 is third in the league and their
on-base plus slugging if fifth at .726.
What does it all mean? That pitch-
ing and defense really do win champi-
onships and, with the problems the
starting pitchers are having, plus
some abysmal defense the last several
weeks, pulling off the World Series
repeat appears to be slipping from
their grasp.
Going into Tuesday’s game against
the Toronto Blue Jays, the Giants are
only 2 and a half games behind the
Arizona Diamondbacks. Amore
telling stat, however, is the fact they
are only three games above .500.
I know they say just get to the
postseason and see what happens but,
the way things are going right now,
the Giants are far from a sure bet to
reach the playoffs. They have 105
games left to figure it out.
Thoughts and prayers go out to for-
mer Daily Journal uber-sports writer
Emanuel Lee. After a couple years
away from the world of sports writ-
ing, Emanuel has recently returned to
the business and is writing for a vari-
ety of outlets on the Peninsula and
the Bay Area.
Last week, however, he suffered a
ruptured appendix and, after emer-
gency surgery late last week, is still
in the process of fighting the result-
ing infection. In a text to longtime
prep sports guru Mitch Stephens,
Emanuel said, “Feels like I got hit by
a Mack truck. Surgeon told me my
body is not winning the fight vs.
infection just yet. So nowhere near
out of woods.”
You all know my feelings about

Neymar signs 5-year contract with Barcelona
BARCELONA, Spain — Neymar completed his transfer
to Barcelona on Monday in a deal that unites the Brazilian
star with Lionel Messi in what should be a formidable
attacking partnership.
Neymar signed a five-year contract with club president
Sandro Rosell after choosing Barcelona over Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old jogged onto the Camp Nou field for the
first time in his new Barcelona jersey with “Neymar Jr” on
the back.
“I am very happy, very moved to be a Barcelona player
and fulfill my dream,” Neymar told the crowd of 56,500 that
welcomed him. “I have come to add my part so that Lionel
Messi continues to be the best player in the world.”
Barcelona vice president Josep Bartomeu said that the
transfer cost Barcelona 57 million euros ($74 million), to
be split among Santos and three other companies that own
shares of the player’s rights. Bartomeu said the club had
expected to pay about 40 million euros, but that “the inter-
ference of other clubs” inflated the price, an allusion to
Real Madrid.
Barcelona’s most expensive transfer had been for Zlatan
Ibrahimovic in 2009, when it gave Inter Milan 45 million
euros (then $64 million) plus forward Samuel Eto’o.

MIAMI — Soccer star David Beckham
may be setting his sights on a new sports
venture: a professional soccer team in
The newly retired Beckham toured Sun
Life and Florida International University
stadiums and met with Miami-Dade County
Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Saturday.
“We’re ready and we’re excited about the
possibility of having top-flight profes-
sional soccer back in Miami,” Gimenez
said. “With people from all over the world
living in our community, this is an ideal
market for MLS and David Beckham is the
right person to make it happen.”
Miami has had a Major League Soccer
team before; the Miami Fusion held match-
es in Fort Lauderdale from 1998 to 2001,
before shutting down because of poor
This time around, city officials hope a
team would succeed.
“The whole community loves soccer down
here,” FIU Executive Director for Sports and
Entertainment Pete Garcia said.
Garcia said university officials delivered a
presentation to Beckham and Marcelo
Claure, president and CEO of Brightstar
Corp. and a member of the FIU Board of
Trustees, explaining the draw of a profes-
sional team in Miami. He said FIU officials
hope Beckham and Claure will start an MLS
team and choose FIU as their stadium.
“Our stadium is state of the art, brand new,
and it’s made for soccer,” Garcia said.
He also noted that a majority of the uni-
versity’s 52,000 students are Hispanic, and
many of them avid soccer fans.

LONDON — When Jose Mourinho left
Chelsea in 2007 after falling out with owner
Roman Abramovich, it appeared the divorce
was final.
The Special One returned to Stamford
Bridge on Monday, 5 1-2 years after his
departure, to the delight of Blues fans
“I had to prepare myself not to be too
emotional on my arrival at the club, but
obviously I am very happy,” Mourinho told
Chelsea TV. “It was an easy decision. I met
the boss, I met the owner, and in five min-
utes after a couple of very short but prag-
matic questions, we decided straight away. I
asked the boss: ‘Do you want me back?’And
the boss asked me: ‘Do you want to come
back?’ And in a couple of minutes, the deci-
sion was made.”
The 50-year-old Portuguese coach was
given a four-year contract as Chelsea man-
ager, nine years and one day after he first
was hired by the club. It was on that first day
at Chelsea in 2004 that Mourinho declared
himself a “Special One,” a nickname that
Mourinho’s relationship with
Abramovich has improved over the years,
and the unpredictable manager said their
divorce back in 2007 benefited both him
and the club.
“It was a difficult moment because I love it
here and have a big connection with the
club. Also for the club, my departure, it was
not easy,” Mourinho said. “But if you ana-
lyze it in a cool way and you leave emotions
a bit apart, I think it was fantastic. Because
after that I had in my career what I was aim-
ing for, and Chelsea as a football club got
important trophies after that, with impor-
tant moments in the history of the club.
Now we are back together, and it is a great
moment for both, so I think we are ready to
marry again and to be happy and successful

minimum. Final approval is expected at the

Around the Bay
By Edith M. Lederer
UNITED NATIONS — More than 65 coun-
tries signed the landmark treaty regulating
the multibillion-dollar global arms trade
Monday and the United States announced it
will sign soon, giving a strong kickoff to
the first major international campaign to
stem the illicit trade in weapons that fuel
conflicts and extremists.
The announcement by U.S. Secretary of
State John Kerry that the U.S. — the world’s
largest arms dealer — will sign is critical,
but the treaty’s ultimate strength rests on
support by all major arms exporters and
importers. While the treaty was overwhelm-
ingly approved on April 2 by the U.N.
General Assembly, key arms exporters
including Russia and China and major
importers including India, Saudi Arabia,
Indonesia and Egypt abstained and have
given no indication yet that they will sign
i t .
Signatures are the first step to ratification,
and the treaty will only take effect after 50
countries ratify it.
Finland’s Foreign Minister Erkki
Tuomioja, a key treaty backer, predicted that
there will be 50 ratifications “within slight-
ly more than a year — but the real test is, of
course, getting those who still have doubts
or who have not made up their minds, to
sign on and ratify. ”
The treaty will require countries that ratify
it to establish national regulations to con-
trol the transfer of conventional arms and
components and to regulate arms brokers,
but it will not control the domestic use of
weapons in any country. It prohibits the
transfer of conventional weapons if they
violate arms embargoes or if they promote
acts of genocide, crimes against humanity
or war crimes, and if they could be used in
attacks on civilians or civilian buildings
such as schools and hospitals.
What impact the treaty will have in curb-
ing the global arms trade — estimated at
between $60 billion and $85 billion —
remains to be seen. A lot will depend on
which countries ratify it, and how stringent-
ly it is implemented once it comes into
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told

NEW YORK — Even as fast-food chains
tout their healthy offerings, they’re also
coming up with fatty new treats to keep cus-
tomers interested. Case in point: Dunkin’
Donuts is adding a doughnut breakfast sand-
wich to its national menu this week.
The sandwich, which comes with fried
eggs and bacon between a split glazed
doughnut, will become a part of the perma-
nent menu starting Friday, which the chain
claims is “National Donut Day.” Dunkin’
Donuts had tested the sandwich in select
stores in eastern Massachusetts in April,
creating considerable buzz online.
Notably, Dunkin’ Donuts says the “Glazed
Donut Breakfast Sandwich” clocks in at 360
calories, which is less than the 390 calories
for the turkey sausage sandwich it recently
introduced for people looking to eat better.
Dunkin’ Donuts, based in Canton, Mass.,
is a unit of Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc.,
which also owns Baskin-Robbins.2
The latest concoction may seem to con-
flict with the push by companies to court
customers with better-for-you offerings. For
example, options like egg whites and whole
grain bread have become common as fast-
food chains scramble to attract people in
their 20s and 30s, who they say want fresh-
er, wholesome food.
That desire to give menus a healthier glow
isn’t just lip service. Earlier this year, a
report by the Hudson Institute found that
lower-calorie options were a key indicator
of growth at restaurant chains between 2006
and 2011.
The chains that expanded such options
saw customer traffic rise by 11 percent,
while those that didn’t saw traffic fall by 15
percent, according to the public policy
research group.
But at the same time, companies know
that indulgent new creations can generate
excitement and a big sales spike. For exam-
ple, Taco Bell says its Doritos Locos Tacos
were its most successful item ever, helping
lift sales at established restaurants by 8 per-
cent last year.
Stan Frankenthaler, executive chef and
vice president of product innovation at
Dunkin’ Donuts, noted that the chain has
been growing sales of its breakfast sand-
wiches in recent years. The profit margins
on breakfast sandwiches are second only to
beverages, according to a recent company
presentation for investors.
As for Dunkin’s recent offerings of a
breakfast sandwich with turkey sausage and
the new doughnut sandwich, Frankenthaler
said they reflect the chain’s goal of offering
as much variety as possible.
Doughnut bacon sandwich healthier than you may think

ATLANTA — Actor Michael Douglas’
comments about throat cancer have thrown
a spotlight on cancer risks from a sexually
spread virus.
The virus, HPV, is best known for caus-
ing cervical cancer. But experts say it also
is a growing cause of certain types of oral
cancer, those in the upper throat — specif-
ically at the base of the tongue and in the
tonsils. Studies suggest that HPV can be
blamed for 60 to 80 percent of those can-
In the U.S., the American Cancer Society
estimates there will be nearly 14,000 new
cases of upper throat cancer this year.
Researchers say women sometimes get
oral cancer caused by
HPV, but the risk is
greatest and rising
among men. A small
study in Baltimore found
men accounted for about
85 percent of recent
HPV-related oral cancers,
said Dr. Sara Pai, a Johns
Hopkins University
Men seem to have
lower amounts of antibody protection
against HPV, said Pai, who advised that
men and women abstain from oral sex if
their partner has an active HPV infection.
“It’s important to know your partner and
to know their history of sexually transmit-
ted diseases, so you understand your full
risk when you become intimate,” she said.
As many as 75 percent of sexually active
men and women will be infected with HPV
at some point. But most clear the infection
on their own within two years. Some, how-
ever, have difficulty ridding themselves of
HPV. And in some cases, the virus creeps
down through tiny fissures in the base of
the tongue or in the tonsils to lodge deep in
the tissue. Those deep-settling infections
can become dangerous cancers that often
aren’t diagnosed until they’re at a late
stage, Pai said.
The connection between HPV and oral
sex has been known. But it was cancer sur-
vivor Douglas’ interview with the
Guardian, a British newspaper, that
grabbed headlines on the subject. Douglas
noted that oral sex and the virus HPVcan be
one cause of oral cancer.
Douglas also has been a smoker and
drinker. Tobacco especially has been fin-
gered as the cause of most other cancers in
the head and neck, including in the voice
box and at the front of the tongue.
But tobacco-related cancers have been
waning, while oral cancers tied to HPV
have been rising.
Symptoms of throat cancer can include a
sore throat that doesn’t go away, pain or
trouble swallowing, a lump in the back of
the throat, ear pain, voice changes.

CHICAGO — New research sug-
gests that bad genes may be
responsible for more breast cancer
cases in black women than has
been previously known. About 1
in 5 African-American women
with the disease have an inherited
mutation that drastically raises
their risk for breast and ovarian
cancer, according to a study
released Monday.
It may help explain why black
women have higher rates of breast
cancer at young ages, a more
aggressive form of the disease,
and worse survival. It doesn’t
mean that all black women are at
risk or even that all blacks with
cancer need genetic counseling or
testing, said the study’s leader, Dr.
Jane Churpek of the University of
Experts offer some advice about
what to make of this information:
Q. What are the genes?
A. Mostly BRCA1 and BRCA2.
Everyone has two copies of these
genes, and a mutation in one can
give a woman up to an 87 percent
risk of developing breast cancer
and up to a 54 percent risk for
ovarian cancer. Sixteen other
genes also can raise risk but are
thought to be less common.
Q. Why might
blacks have high risk?
A. African-Americans’ genes are
more diverse than those of many
other racial and ethnic groups.
Most of the mutations identified in
this study were novel, or unique to
each woman, Churpek said. It’s
possible that more detailed tests
in whites and other groups might
find a higher prevalence of muta-
tions than previous studies have
found in them, too.
Q. Should more
black women be tested?
A. National guidelines do not
specify any groups that should be
tested except Eastern European
(Ashkenazi) Jewish women with
breast or ovarian cancer or a close
relative who has had one of those
diseases. Genetic counseling
should be offered to black women
who develop breast cancer before
age 50, who have a close relative
with the disease, or who have
“triple-negative” breast cancer.
Triple negative means tumors
that are not fueled by estrogen,
progesterone or the gene that the
drug Herceptin targets.
Q. What can be done if a
gene mutation is found?
A . Women who find the muta-
tion after they have breast cancer
may want to consider removing
both breasts or their ovaries.
Those who are screened before
cancer develops can consider
more frequent screening and pre-
vention measures ranging from
hormone-blocking drugs to
removal of breasts and ovaries.
They also can let relatives know
about potential family risk.
Q. Why did this study find
so many more gene flaws?
A. Standard tests look for just a
few common mutations in BRCA1
and BRCA2. The tests cost around
$3,000, and insurance will often
cover them if a woman has a fami-
ly history suggesting high risk. A
second $750 test is needed to
look for a different type of genet-
ic flaw. That test often is not done
or covered by insurance.
In the Chicago study,
researchers decoded, or
sequenced, all 18 genes tied to
breast cancer risk, so it could
pick up all types of mutations in
any of them.

WASHINGTON — If worry about skin
cancer doesn’t make you slather on
sunscreen, maybe vanity will: New
research provides some of the
strongest evidence to date that near-
daily sunscreen use can slow the aging
of your skin.
Ultraviolet rays that spur wrinkles
and other signs of aging can quietly
build up damage pretty much anytime
you’re in the sun — a lunchtime stroll,
school recess, walking the dog — and
they even penetrate car windows.
Researchers in sunny Australia used a
unique study to measure whether sun-
screens really help amid that
onslaught. Participants had casts made
of the top of their hands to measure fine
lines and wrinkles that signal sun-
caused aging.
The research found that even if you’re
already middle-aged, it’s not too late to
start rubbing some sunscreen on — and
not just at the beach or pool. The study
of 900 people under 55 compared those
randomly assigned to use sunscreen
daily to those who used it when they
deemed it necessary.
Daily sunscreen use was tough —
participants did cheat a little. But after
4 1/2 years, those who used sunscreen
regularly had younger-looking hands,
with 24 percent less skin aging than
those who used sunscreen only some of
the time.
Both young adults and the middle-
aged experienced skin-saving effects,
concluded the study, financed by
Australia’s government and published
Monday in the journal Annals of
Internal Medicine.
“These are meaningful cosmetic ben-
efits,” lead scientist Dr. Adele Green of
the Queensland Institute of Medical
Research said in an email interview.
More importantly, she added, less sun-
caused aging decreases the risk of skin
cancer in the long term.
Dermatologists have long urged
year-round sunscreen use — especially
for constantly exposed skin on the
face, hands and women’s neck and
upper chest — but say too few people
heed that advice. Women may have bet-
ter luck, as increasingly the cosmetics
industry has added sunscreen to makeup
and moisturizers. Skin experts hope
the new study draws attention to the
“Regular use of sunscreen had an
unquestionable protective effect,” said
Dr. Richard Glogau, a clinical profes-
sor of dermatology at the University of
California, San Francisco, who has
long studied sun’s skin effects. He was-
n’t involved with the Australian
The consumer message: “They can
get a two-for-one with sunscreen. They
can do something that will keep them
healthier and also keep them better-
looking,” Glogau said.
In his clinic near Philadelphia, Dr.
Eric Bernstein lectures patients who
insist they’re not in the sunshine
enough for it to be causing their wrin-
kles, brown spots and dilated blood
vessels. Even 15 minutes every day
adds up over many years, he tells them
— and if they’re using one bottle of
sunscreen a year, they’re probably not
using enough.
“No one thinks they’re in the sun,
and they’re in the sun all the time,” said
Bernstein, also a clinical professor at
the University of Pennsylvania. “I say,
‘How did you get here — did you tunnel
The news comes just as tougher Food
and Drug Administration rules for U.S.
sunscreens are taking effect. For the
first time, they ensure that sunscreens
labeled “broad-spectrum” protect
against both the ultraviolet-B rays that
cause sunburn and those deeper-pene-
trating ultraviolet-A rays that are
linked to premature wrinkles and skin
Sunburns, especially in childhood,
have been linked to a greater risk for
melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer.
But overall UV exposure plays a role
both in melanoma and in other skin
cancers that usually are curable but can
be disfiguring if not caught early.
Australia has one of the world’s high-
est rates of skin cancer, and Monday’s
aging research actually stems from a
larger cancer-prevention study done in
the 1990s. Researchers tracked partici-
pants for a decade before concluding
that regular sunscreen use indeed low-
ered their cancer risk.
Green’s team dug back through old
study files to examine what’s called
photoaging —using those casts that
had been made of some participants’
Skin stretches and recoils thanks to
elastic fibers supporting it. UV rays
damage that elasticity, something sci-
entists previously have measured using
biopsies of the tissue just under the
skin’s top layer. With enough damage,
the skin on top starts to sag and wrin-
kle. Young people have very fine, bare-
ly visible lines on their skin. Sun-dam-
aged fibers correlate with increasingly
visible lines, in a sort of cross-hatch
pattern. Hand casts allowed the
Australian researchers to grade that
amount of damage.
The researchers figured out who really
used sunscreen by periodically weigh-
ing the bottles donated by a sunscreen
maker. Green’s team calculated that
three-quarters of the people assigned to
daily sunscreen use actually applied it
at least three to four days a week. Only
a third of the comparison group said
they used sunscreen that often.
Sunscreen slows skin aging, if used often

Controller Bob Adler said his office
plans to look at each of the grand
jury’s recommendations to determine
if they are feasible for future reports.
“We are always searching for new
ways to make financial information
more useful and understandable,” Adler
wrote in an email.
The jury recommends both the budg-
et and the popular annual financial
report — a more condensed, accessible
form of the comprehensive document
— include in “a simple, straightfor-
ward manner” these missing elements
like the total county revenue, total
employee payroll and the total cost of
employee benefit s.
Currently, the fiscal year 2013 budg-
et is 336 pages long, detailing $1.9
billion appropriated over approxi-
mately 1,200 separate financial
The controller’s comprehensive
report is shorter, 183 pages for the
most recent one, and the popular ver-
sion condenses that further to 10
pages. However, only three of those
pages are dedicated to the county’s
finances which leaves out information
key to understanding them, the jury
report stated.
The public is left struggling to grasp
the big picture because of the budget’s
size and complicated contents, accord-
ing to the jury.
Despite the jury’s concerns about the
documents, both have been lauded
within the industry. The Controller’s
Office has won a certificate for excel-
lent financial reporting 13 straight
years for the comprehensive report and
10 years for the popular version. The
county won distinguished budget
awards for fiscal year 2005 to 2011 but
the county did not apply in 2012 and
the 2013 winners have yet to be
The jury report points out, though,
that members of the general public are
not involved in the awards and judging
is subjective based on the reviewer.
“The point is, while the
[Government Finance Officers
Association of the United States and
Canada]’s recognition of ht budget,
CAFR and PAFR is laudable, it does
not mean they cannot be improved,”
the jury report stated.
To improve the reports, the jury rec-
ommends they included five years of
information be provided to track
trends and report all revenue, such as s
the $40 million in excess ERAF left
out of the budget for fiscal year 2013.
But county spokesman Marshall
Wilson said only half the ERAF money
is included because it could go away at
any time.
“A budget is essentially a series of
promises and I don’t think the county
wants to be in the business of promis-
ing services to people and then have to
pull it back or fund it in a different
way,” Wilson said.
The jury requests information it
claims is omitted from the documents,
such as $400 million in payroll for fis-
cal year 2013 and total payments to
contractors outside of those doing cap-
ital improvements.
The jury also recommends making
the reports more user friendly for
information already included but hard
to find, such as changes in rainy day
fund reserves or expenditures. It sug-
gests reporting the 10 largest county
expenses by category, like employee
payroll or debt services, and list the 10
largest county expenses by depart-
The county will certainly look at the
ideas but Wilson said the budget is
already lengthy; additional summaries
will just add more pages and, with it,
more expense.
The civil grand jury carries no legal
weight to enforce its recommendations
but recipients — in this instance the
Board of Supervisors and Adler — must
respond in writing.

may be time to find new donors to keep
the program going.
“We’d like them to all work in the
district,” Michelson said about nurse
graduates. “Right now, there may not
be enough nursing jobs locally. ”
Jack Hickey, who sits on the Sequoia
board and wants the district to actually
be dissolved, said it should not sup-
port the nursing program, especially
considering the district no longer has
any oversight over Sequoia Hospital,
which it once owned.
Hickey said a nursing program would
best be supported by a countywide
effort rather than just Sequoia. If
Sequoia and the Peninsula Health Care
District, which serves an area in the
northern part of the county, were to
somehow merge or absorb each other,
it could support such a program,
Hickey said.
The report also states that Sequoia
supports the Ravenswood Clinic in
East Palo Alto with about $500,000 a
year even though the clinic is not tech-
nically in the district.
Michelson said that many district
residents from Redwood City, North
Fair Oaks and Menlo Park access the
community clinic.
Currently, the district does not track
how many of its residents the
Ravenswood Clinic serves or the per-
centage of those served who are dis-
trict residents, according to the civil
grand jury report.
Other than these two major recom-
mendations for the district, the report
offered up only one other major recom-
mendation — “to seek opportunities
to make public presentations in order
to ensure that residents are well
informed, heard and represented by
Kathleen Kane, who sits on the
board alongside Hickey, called the
civil grand jury’s findings “yet another
positive report for us.”
The civil grand jury also found that
the service review of the district con-
ducted by the County Local Agency
Formation Commission would have
had more substance if a consultant
knowledgeable about health care dis-
tricts had assisted in its preparation.
Both Kane and Hickey were pleased
to see LAFCo included in the report.
LAFCo oversees special tax districts
in the county and reports on their via-
The civil grand jury recommended
that LAFCo perform separate service
reviews of both the Sequoia and
Peninsula health care districts going
LAFCo, Hickey said, is the agency
that can bring Sequoia’s dissolution to
the voters.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-

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.

BEIJING — Fire swept through
a poultry processing plant in
northeastern China on Monday,
trapping workers inside a slaugh-
terhouse with only a single open
exit and killing at least 119 peo-
ple in one of the country’s worst
industrial disasters in years.
Survivors described panic as
workers, mostly women, strug-
gled through smoke and flames
to reach doors that turned out to
be locked or blocked.
One worker, 39-year-old Guo
Yan, said the emergency exit at
her workstation could not be
opened and she was knocked to
the ground in the crush of work-
ers searching for a way to escape.
“I could only crawl desperately
forward,” Guo was quoted as say-
ing by the official Xinhua News
Agency. “I worked alongside an
old lady and a young girl, but I
don’t know if they survived or
not. ”
The accident highlights the
high human costs of China’s lax
industrial safety standards, which
continue to plague workplaces
despite recent improvements in
the country’s work safety record.
It also comes amid growing
international concern over facto-
ry safety across Asia following
the collapse in April of a garment
factory in Bangladesh that killed
more than 1,100 people.
Besides the dead, dozens were
injured in the blaze in Jilin
province’s Mishazi township,
which appeared to have been
sparked by three early morning
explosions, Xinhua said. The
provincial fire department attrib-
uted the blasts to an ammonia
leak. The chemical is kept pres-
surized as part of the cooling
system in meat processing
It was one of China’s worst
recent industrial disasters, with
the death toll the highest since a
September 2008 mining cave-in
that claimed 281 lives.
State broadcaster CCTV quoted
workers as saying the fire broke
out during a shift change when
about 350 workers were at the
plant, owned by Jilin
Baoyuanfeng Poultry Co.

Turkish PM, president
at odds over protests
ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish riot
police launched round after round
of tear gas against protesters on
Monday, the fourth day of violent
demonstrations, as the president
and the prime minister staked com-
peting positions on the unrest.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip
Erdogan rejected the protesters’
demands that he resign and dis-
missed the demonstrations as the
work of Turkey’s opposition.
President Abdullah Gul, for his
part, praised the mostly peaceful
protesters as expressing their dem-
ocratic rights.
The two men could face off next
year in Turkey’s presidential elec-
Turkey has been rocked by vio-
lent demonstrations since Friday,
when police launched a pre-dawn
raid against a peaceful sit-in
protesting plans to uproot trees in
Istanbul’s main Taksim Square.
