San Bruno will soon be reaching
the third anniversary of the 2010
Pacific Gas and Electric pipeline
explosion and fire and the event is
still close to Mayor Jim Ruane’s
Ruane, 65, served on the San
Bruno City Council for 14 years
before becoming mayor in 2009,
a year before the incident. Since
the explosion, the mayor of a
relatively low-key San
Francisco suburb has become
involved with advocacy for
reforming the regulatory process
that governs utility companies.
Eight people died as a result of
the gas pipeline explosion and
fire, while 60 people were injured
and 38 homes were destroyed Sept.
9, 2010 in the Crestmoor neigh-
borhood. The explosion and
resulting shock wave registered as
a magnitude 1.1 earthquake and
forever changed the neighbor-
hood, the city and Ruane.
Ruane said the incident has cer-
tainly had effects on him as a
leader, bringing him to the
national stage.
“I went from balancing the
budget and making sure trees were
trimmed to testifying to Senate
[about the explosion],” Ruane
said. “I’m taking it as it comes and

San Mateo County officials agree with a
civil grand jury that more transparency and
highlighting key factors
in the budget could make
its financial reporting
easier for the public to
County Manager John
Maltbie said as much in
the official Board of
Supervisor response to
the June report “San
Mateo County Financial
Reporting: Toward Clarity and
Transparency.” Grand jury reports carry no
legal weight but recipients are required to
respond in writing within 90 days. The
Board of Supervisors will formally approve
the response at its Tuesday meeting.
But while the county is under no obliga-
tion to implement the jury’s recommenda-
tions, Maltbie wrote that some will be fully
or partially put in place. A few are deemed
infeasible and Maltbie even points to the
county’s own moves toward greater trans-
parency like an online “open checkbook”
where the public can see any transaction of
payments greater than $5,000.
The jury concluded that the county’s
finances are way too large and complicated
for easy understanding by the general pub-
lic. The fiscal year 2013 budget is 336
pages long, detailing $1.9 billion appro-
priated over approximately 1,200 separate
financial accounts. The controller’s com-
prehensive report is about half the length
and the popular version condenses that fur-
ther to 10 pages. However, the jury felt that
key information was left out to understand
what the financial documents mean.
The jury recommended a list of changes it
said would help like inclusion in financial
documents of total employee compensation
and the annual costs of pension liability.
Maltbie said both will be implemented.
The recommendation to include excess
property taxes and other one-time revenue
will be partially implemented in the recom-
mended budget book but not the adopted
one because the state controller’s guide-
lines do not call for it. The same goes for
recommendations like breaking down the
budget amount per San Mateo County resi-
dent and listing the 10 largest county
expenses by category and department.
However, Maltbie also noted that,
depending on staff resources, the accepted
recommendations may not be put in place
for the upcoming budget cycle.
The jury’s recommendation to list the
total payments to county contractors aside
from those making capital improvements
was not as welcome.
The recommended and adopted budget
books are final plans and policy documents,
not a way to detail the prior year’s activity,
Maltbie wrote in his response.

A 36-year-old Japanese national com-

reportedly stuffing a homemade bomb in

room was sentenced to time served after
pleading no contest to committing a pub-
lic offense.
Takumi Hombu, of Japan, was also given
three years of supervised probation on top
of the year jail for which he has credit. If
deported, Hombu was ordered not to return
illegally to the United States.
The change of plea on the felony came
just ahead of his scheduled preliminary hear-

called police about Hombu who reportedly
had been there several
days and refused to leave
when asked because of his
mess. Officers discovered
a homemade explosive
device inside the
microwave and called the
bomb squad.
An explosives expert
concluded the device
could have detonated and
started a fire if the
microwave had been turned on but Hombu,
who speaks little English, claimed through
an interpreter he could not be arrested
because the bomb did not explode, accord-
ing to prosecutors.
In November, court-appointed doctors
declared him incompetent for trial but he
returned in July after hospital staff found
him mentally restored.

South City to vote on
a business tax measure
The South San Francisco City Council
Monday will discuss an increase to its busi-
ness tax that would need to be placed on the
Nov. 5 ballot for voter approval.
If the ballot measure is approved, with the
new business license tax change, the city
would gain $350,000 more revenue annual-
l y, and increasing up to $1 million annual-
ly if the tax were fully implemented and if
potential new revenue based upon business
expansion plans were realized, according to
a city staff report. This would come from a
$50 tax per up to $100,000 in gross
receipts, $100 for $100,001 to $200,000
in gross receipts, $2,000 for $200,001 to
$300,000 in gross receipts, $5,000 for
$300,001 to $500,000 in gross tax
receipts, all the way up to $40,000 for the
first $500,001 of gross receipts plus
$8,000 for each increment of $100,000 of
gross receipts over $500,000, the staff
report stated.
At a public hearing July 31, a representa-
tive from Clear Channel suggested the pro-
posed amendments to the business license
tax were anti-business.
The Clear Channel representative said
that the $1 million revenue is the same as
the current revenue numbers from business
license tax and that this proposed measure
unfairly targets the billboard industry.
Businesses currently pay a per-employee
charge, which started at $15 in 2007, with a
provision to increase as inflation does.
Prior to that, the tax was a $75 annual fee
plus $5 per employee with a $1,000 cap
that was set in 1976 with no adjustment for
The last business license tax change came
in 2007, when voters approved a measure.
The meeting will be 4:15 p.m. Monday,
Aug. 5 at the City Hall Conference Room at
400 Grand Ave. in South San Francisco.
Teacher pleads not
guilty to porn at work
Aformer science teacher at a private San
Mateo school for children with learning
disabilities pleaded not guilty to keeping
child pornography at work and exchanging
inappropriate messages with a 14-year-old
Jefferey Michael Hicks, 35, of Campbell,
is charged with one
felony count of possess-
ing child pornography
and one misdemeanor
count of annoying a child
under 18. He entered his
plea after a judge granted
him a court-appointed
attorney which had previ-
ously been denied at his
initial arraignment. He
returns to court Nov. 7 for a preliminary
hearing on the evidence and remains free on
a $100,000 bail bond.
After Hicks was placed on leave from
Stanbridge Academy for allegedly exchang-
ing Facebook messages with the teen about
masturbation, the school’s head found on
his desk a CD containing pornographic
videos, according to prosecutors.
He was arrested in May.
If convicted, Hicks faces up to three years
in prison.
Two-alarm condo fire may
have been related to plumbing
A two-alarm structure fire at the 340
Vallejo Drive yesterday in Millbrae was
contained at 11:45 a.m., within about an
hour of its initial start.
The fire started on the ground floor of the
condominium in unit 102, which was under-
going a bathroom remodel and spread to the
third floor. It’s suspected that plumbers were
changing out control values in a section of
the bathroom wall when the fire started at
around 10:45 a.m., according to Central
County Fire Battalion Chief Ed Barton.
Central County Fire Chief Mark Ladas
said no one was hurt, but about six units
were affected by the fire which stayed in the
“Very little content was damaged,” Ladas
said. “It’s mostly structural damage.”
Barton said there were four to five of these
types of fires throughout the county in the
last year and these are fairly common. This
is the first in Millbrae in a while, he said.
The unit was empty, except for the
plumbers, when the fire began since it was
recently sold and repairs were being done.
The plumbers called in about the fire, said

Two temporary art
installations come to
South San Francisco
Flying Fish and Electric Slide
will be in place until 2015
Orange Memorial Park Sculpture Garden received two
sculpture installations through South San Francisco’s
Temporary Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit program.
Located across from the bocce court and standing 12 feet
tall, the Flying Fish is a wind-driven kinetic sculpture. The
stainless steel and aluminum fish is perched on a bicycle
fork and was created by artist Patricia Vader.
Near the tennis courts, is the Electric Slide bird sculpture,
created by sculptor Pokey Park. This is located in the center
of the gardens.
The art exhibit program was established in 2003, origi-
nally instituted as the Loan Art Program. The city notes the
community is able to enjoy new and distinctive sculptures
at minimal expense, while artists have the opportunity to
showcase their work in a prestigious venue.
These sculptures will be on loan to the city through 2015.

Supreme Court on Friday paved the
way for the early release of nearly
10,000 California inmates by year’s
end despite warnings by Gov. Jerry
Brown and other state officials that a
public safety crisis looms if they’re
forced to open the prison gates.
A majority of justices refused an
emergency request by the governor to
halt a lower court’s directive for the
early release of the prisoners to ease
severe overcrowding at California’s 33
adult prisons.
The decision was met with concern
by law enforcement officials in the
Covina Police Chief Kim Raney,
president of the California Police
Chiefs Association, said the justices
ignored efforts already underway to
reduce prison popu-
lations and “chose
instead to allow for
the release of more
felons into already
overburdened com-
Brown’s office
referred a request for
comment to the
C a l i f o r n i a
Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation, where Secretary Jeff
Beard vowed that the state would press
on with a still-pending appeal in hope
of preventing the releases.
A panel of three federal judges had
previously ordered the state to cut its
prison population by nearly 8 percent
to roughly 110,000 inmates by Dec.
31 to avoid conditions amounting to
cruel and unusual punishment. That
panel, responding to decades of law-
suits filed by inmates, repeatedly
ordered early releases after finding
inmates were needlessly dying and suf-
fering because of inadequate medical
and mental health care caused by over-
Court-appointed experts found that
the prison system had a suicide rate
that worsened last year to 24 per
100,000 inmates, far exceeding the
national average of 16 suicides per
100,000 inmates in state prisons.
Brown had appealed the latest deci-
sion of the panel and, separately,
asked the U.S. Supreme Court to cancel
the early release order while consider-
ing his arguments that the state is
making significant progress in
improving conditions. The high court
refused Friday to stop the release but
did not rule on the appeal itself.
Corrections Secretary Beard said the
state would press on with that, so the
“merits of the case can be considered
without delay.”

SACRAMENTO — Federal land man-
agers will launch a statewide scientific
assessment of oil and gas development
in California, a victory for environ-
mentalists concerned about impacts of
hydraulic fracturing nationwide.
The Bureau of Land Management
announced Friday that it will conduct
the in-depth environmental study of
fracking and other oil and gas recovery
projects in a cooperative project with
the state.
The decision comes after a federal
judge determined the BLM violated
environmental law by auctioning off
the rights to extract oil using the con-
troversial process on 2,500 acres of
prime public lands in Monterey
The BLM says the outcome of its
assessment could establish additional
environmental protections on those
“We’re pleased that federal officials
are finally starting the full analysis of
fracking pollution’s dangers that
should have been done before these
public lands were auctioned off to oil
companies,” said Brendan Cummings,
senior counsel at the Center for
Biological Diversity.
The Center and the Sierra Club sued in
a challenge to the BLM’s decision to
auction the land without studying
potential impacts. In April a judge sided
with the environmental groups.

WASHINGTON — The United States issued
an extraordinary global travel warning to
Americans Friday about the threat of an al-
Qaida attack and closed down 21 embassies
and consulates across the Muslim world for
the weekend.
The alert was the first of its kind since an
announcement preceding the tenth anniver-
sary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This one
comes with the scars still fresh from last
year’s deadly Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. diplo-
matic post in Benghazi, Libya, and with the
Obama administration and Congress deter-
mined to prevent any similar breach of an
American Embassy or consulate.
“There is a significant threat stream and
we’re reacting to it,” said Gen. Martin
Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff. He told ABC News in an interview to be
aired Sunday that the threat was “more specif-
ic” than previous ones and the “intent is to
attack Western, not just U.S. interests.”
The State Department warning urged
American travelers to take extra precautions
overseas, citing potential dangers involved
with public transportation systems and other
prime sites for tourists and noting that previ-
ous terrorist attacks have centered on subway
and rail networks as well as airplanes and
boats. It suggested travelers sign up for State
Department alerts and register with U.S. con-
sulates in the countries they visit.
The statement said that al-Qaida or its
allies might target either U.S. government or
private American interests. The alert expires
on Aug. 31.
The State Department said the potential for
terrorism was particularly acute in the Middle
East and North Africa, with a possible attack
occurring on or coming from the Arabian
U.S. officials pointed specifically to
Yemen, the home of al-Qaida’s most danger-
ous offshoot and the network blamed for sev-
eral notable terrorist plots on the United
States, from the foiled Christmas Day 2009
effort to bomb an airliner over Detroit to the
explosives-laden parcels intercepted the fol-
lowing year aboard cargo flights.
“Current information suggests that al-
Qaida and affiliated organizations continue to
plan terrorist attacks both in the region and
beyond, and that they may focus efforts to
conduct attacks in the period between now
and the end of August,” a department state-
ment said.
The alert was posted a day after the U.S.
announced it would shut many diplomatic
facilities Sunday. Spokeswoman Marie Harf
said the department acted out of an “abun-
dance of caution” and that some missions
may stay closed for longer than a day. Sunday
is a business day in Muslim countries, and
the diplomatic offices affected stretch from
Mauritania in northwest Africa to
“I don’t know if I can say there was a spe-
cific threat,” said Rep. Eliot Engel of New
York, the House Foreign Affairs
Committee’s top Democrat, who was briefed
on the State Department’s decision. “There is
concern over the potentiality of violence.”
Although the warning coincided with “Al-
Quds Day,” the last Friday of the Islamic
month of Ramadan when people in Iran and
some Arab countries express their solidarity
with the Palestinians and their opposition to
Israel, U.S. officials played down any con-
nection. They said the threat wasn’t directed
toward a specific American diplomatic facili-
t y.
The concern by American officials over the
Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian
Peninsula is not new, given the terror
branch’s gains in territory and reach during
Yemen’s prolonged Arab Spring-related
The group made significant territorial
gains last year, capturing towns and cities in
the south amid a power struggle in the capital
that ended with the resignation of Yemen’s
longtime leader, Ali Abdullah Saleh. AU.S.-
aided counteroffensive by the government
has since pushed the militants back.
Yemen’s current president, Abdo Rabby
Mansour Hadi, met with U.S. President
Barack Obama at the White House on
Thursday, where both leaders cited strong
counterterrorism cooperation. Earlier this
week, Yemen’s military reported a U.S. drone
strike killed six alleged al-Qaida militants in
the group’s southern strongholds.

JACKSON, Miss. — If a girl younger than
16 gives birth and won’t name the father, a
new Mississippi law — likely the first of its
kind in the country — says authorities must
collect umbilical cord blood and run DNA
tests to prove paternity as a step toward pros-
ecuting statutory rape cases.
Supporters say the law is intended to chip
away at Mississippi’s teen pregnancy rate,
which has long been one of the highest in
the nation. But critics say that though the
procedure is painless, it invades the medical
privacy of the mother, father and baby. And
questions abound: At roughly $1,000 a pop,
who will pay for the DNA tests in the coun-
try’s poorest state? Even after test results
arrive, can prosecutors compel a potential
father to submit his own DNA and possibly
implicate himself in a crime? How long will
the state keep the DNAon file?
Republican Gov. Phil Bryant says the DNA
tests could lead to prosecution of grown men
who have sex with underage girls.
“It is to stop children from being raped,”
said Bryant, who started his career as a deputy
sheriff in the 1970s. “One of the things that
go on in this state that’s always haunted me
when I was a law-enforcement officer is see-
ing the 14- and 15-year-old girl that is raped
by the neighbor next door and down the
But Bear Atwood, legal director for the
American Civil Liberties Union of
Mississippi, said it’s an invasion of privacy
to collect cord blood without consent of the
mother, father and baby. She also said that an
underage girl who doesn’t want to reveal the
identity of her baby’s father might skip pre-
natal care: “Will she decide not to have the
baby in a hospital where she can have a safe,
happy, healthy delivery?”
The law took effect July 1 but hasn’t been
used yet. Cord blood samples would have to
be taken immediately after birth, and the
state medical examiner is setting administra-
tive rules for how the blood will be collected
and stored. Megan Comlossy, health policy
associate for the National Conference of
State Legislatures, said she thinks
Mississippi is the first state to enact a law
authorizing the collection of blood from the
umbilical cord — a painless procedure — to
determine paternity.
Bryant’s staff says the idea for the law came
from public meetings conducted by the gov-
ernor’s teen pregnancy prevention task force
— a group that focuses mostly on promoting
Statistics put the state’s teen pregnancy
rate among the highest in the country. In
2011 — the most recent year for which sta-
tistics are available — there were 50.2 live
births in Mississippi per 1,000 females ages
15-19, according to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention. The nationwide rate
was 31.3.
And more than half Mississippi’s 82 coun-
ties reported at least one pregnancy by a 10-
to 14-year-old girl in 2011, according to an
Associated Press analysis of state statistics.

CAIRO — Authorities outlined plans
Friday to break up two sit-ins by supporters
of deposed President Mohammed Morsi,
saying they would set up a cordon around the
protest sites, and riot police used tear gas to
disperse demonstrators threatening a TV
Morsi backers also showed their defiance
by briefly setting up a third camp near the
airport, but later folded their tents and left.
The military-backed interim government
seeks to end a political stalemate that has
paralyzed Egypt and deeply divided the coun-
try. Supporters of Morsi and his Muslim
Brotherhood say they will not disperse until
he is returned to power.
The second-ranking U.S. diplomat arrived
in the Egyptian capital for talks on the
political crisis, as Secretary of State John
Kerry warned both sides that “the last thing
we want is more violence.”
Also Friday, Amnesty International
reported cases of alleged killings and torture
at the hands of Morsi supporters inside the
protest camps, saying that one man had his
throat cut and another was stabbed to death.
In southwestern Cairo, police fired tear gas
at Morsi supporters who rallied in front of
Media City, a site housing most of Egypt’s
private TV stations, a security official said.
Asecond official told the state news agency
that protesters tried to “obstruct traffic in an
attempt to affect work at the complex.”
The rally was “a desperate attempt by
rioters from the (Islamist) current,” Maj.
Gen. Abdel-Fattah Othman, a spokesman
for the Interior Ministry, told the private
TV station Mehwer. “There was reinforce-
ment from police and army that will not
allow any reckless person to get close to
the Media City or storm it.”
He described the protesters as “brain-
washed” to attack broadcasters perceived as
secular opponents of the Islamists. Last
year, Morsi supporters held a sit-in near
Media City, often harassing TV personali-
ties and forcing many of them to sneak into
the studios from other entrances.

leaker Edward Snowden has a place to live in
Russia after being granted temporary asy-
lum, but he still hasn’t decided what he
wants to do next, his lawyer said Friday. The
big question may be how much choice he
actually has.
Russia granted a year of asylum to
Snowden on Thursday, allowing him to qui-
etly slip out of the Moscow airport where he
had been holed up for almost six weeks as he
evades charges of espionage in the United
States. Authorities have suggested he will
have wide freedom to

lance program needs time after his ordeal

He was seen only once in his weeks in the
transit zone of the Sheremetyevo airport.
Despite troops of photographers and
reporters camped out inside and outside the
airport, no one apparently saw him leaving,
except for someone who snapped a photo of
Kucherena talking to blurry figures who the
attorney later said were Snowden and Sarah
Harrison, a WikiLeaks staffer who has been
advising him.
Kucherena said he expects Snowden to
speak to journalists soon. “As soon as he
decides what he will do, I hope he will
announce it himself,” the ITAR-Tass news
agency quoted the lawyer as saying.

Iowa man saves couple
from oncoming train
AMES, Iowa — An Iowa man is being
hailed as a hero for pushing an elderly cou-
ple’s stalled car from a railroad crossing
with a freight train bearing down on them.
Chris Ihle, 38, said he was returning from
lunch Wednesday and had just parked his
motorcycle at the Wells Fargo Bank in Ames
where he works when he noticed that a
Pontiac Bonneville was sitting frozen in
the nearby rail crossing with a train
Ihle ran over and screamed at the couple
inside, 84-year-old Marion Papich and his
78-year-old wife, Jean, to move, but they
didn’t .
“They just sat there and the train was com-
ing,” the father of three told The Des
Moines Register.
Ihle tried pushing the car forward, but it
wouldn’t budge. So he moved to the car’s
front and told Marion Papich to make sure it
was in neutral. He then dug in his cowboy
boots and heaved as the train bore down on
them with its horn blaring and brakes
“You could hear it. I even think I could
smell it,” Ihle said.
Ihle managed to push the car about 5 feet
to safety, seconds before the train rumbled
by, missing him by inches.
The car wasn’t scratched and the Papiches
were unharmed.

Something smells fishy
At the last San Mateo County
Harbor Commission meeting, I was
appalled by the rampant unprofes-
sionalism of several members, but
the most egregious was General
Manager Peter Grenell.
Commissioner Sabrina Brennan
read a report indicating that prices set
by Grenell and levied upon local fish-
erman were much higher than in other
counties. Commission President
Robert Bernardo failed to stop
Grenell’s frequent interruptions and
kept rudely reminding Brennan of the
time (8:30 p.m.), forcing her to get
uppity in an effort to be heard. I’m
sure it was shocking. However, not as
shocking as Commissioner William
Holsinger’s stunt of getting up and
standing against the wall as if the
strident voice of a woman was so
threatening he had to flee.
Commissioner Pietro Parravano
said nothing except to cast his votes
and barely seemed, well, present. He
did pipe up to recuse himself from the
fish prices discussion. He is not a
fisherman, so the commission should
ask him not to recuse himself.
I’m sure the maltreatment of
Brennan wasn’t solely because of
gender, it’s probably her audacity to
ask staff questions in pursuit of new
ways to do things. Or to pursue issues
put forth by disenfranchised con-
stituents. At each turn, Grenell was
obstinate, failing to ask clarifying
questions that would save the com-
mission time and money, seemingly
focused on impeding progress and
blatantly attempting to set someone
up for a political downfall.
I call upon the commission to
replace Grenell for his repeated uneth-
ical behavior, upon county residents
to demand a commission and general
manager that support transparency,
cooperation and actually work for the
best interests of their residents, and
upon the voters to replace Holsinger,
who lost two county-wide elections
and only served after being appoint-
ed. Replace him with someone the
people want to see on the commis-
sion, someone more professional.

Letter to the editor
The Seattle Times
merica’s consumer choices,
voting trends and viewing
habits help fill in the mosaic
of this big economically, politically
and socially diverse country.
Last week the Nielsen company,
which tracks television audiences,
announced the Spanish-language
Univision network was tops with
viewers aged 18-45 for the month of
Univision passed NBC in February,
but that was dismissed as a one-time
win over a struggling network. To
beat Fox, CBS, ABC, NBC and others
in Nielsen’s July time frame speaks to
Univision’s appeal and the size of the
demographic it drew upon.
Univision offered the same types of
music, sports and programs to attract
young viewers and were not the usual
summer reruns on the other networks.
Nielsen reports the median age for
Univision viewers is 37. Over at
CBS, NBC and ABC the median age is
into the mid-50s.
Univision’s triumphal full-page ad
in The New York Times that “Numero
Uno is the New Number One,” is a bit
of corporate hype, but the power of a
diverse demographic has found a very
traditional expression.
Dr. Luis Fraga, University of
Washington associate vice provost
and political science professor, says
Univision has built its viewing audi-
ence with news coverage and pro-
gramming content and story lines
that put U.S. current events in a useful
context for Latino viewers.
One Univision effort, titled “This is
the Moment,” promoted education,
college preparation and enrollment
for families and a growing segment of
a growing demographic. The White
House recruited Univision to promote
the new health-care plan.
Eyes on TV screens reflect who we
are and what we watch, and advertisers
and pollsters pay attention.
Political strength is found in num-
bers. How those numbers reveal them-
selves beyond Election Day can be as
routine as noticing who watches
which network.
Univision’s window on America What happened to the
once-thriving Detroit?
any factors contributed to Detroit’s decline,
but the central story is one that is going to
become familiar to Americans in the coming
years. As everyone knows, Detroit was once an industrial
giant and the center of our automotive industry. In part
due to increased competition, but also because of anti-
quated labor models and too high employment costs,
those automotive companies began struggling. If many
know that too generous employee benefit packages con-
tributed to the decline of Detroit
car manufacturers, too few know
that a similar dynamic was in
play in the government itself.
In Detroit, state and city
employees also negotiated gen-
erous pensions and lifetime
health care benefits. As a result,
it has accumulated long-term
debts of at least $18 billion
including $3.5 billion in
unfunded pensions and $5.7 bil-
lion in underfunded health bene-
fits for about 21,000 retired
workers. The rest is owed to
bondholders and other unsecured creditors.
As those pensions and benefits took a larger share of
the budget, they reduced services such as trash collec-
tion. Then they started laying off city workers such as
policemen and firemen or giving them early retirement.
It wasn’t enough. The city’s precarious financial situa-
tion was exacerbated by widespread corruption, financial
mismanagement, the auto industry collapse and a dramat-
ically shrunken tax base as people moved out. Wi t h
fewer and fewer paying taxes, the budget problems
became worse and worse. Eventually Detroit just ran out
of money, and even the ability to envision anyway that
they could turn the situation around.
Detroit is making the most headlines, but what is hap-
pening there is what also happened in Vallejo, Stockton,
Mammoth Lakes and San Bernardino. And Los Angeles is
a strong candidate for being the fifth in California.
Daniel Pellissler, head of California Pension Reform,
dedicated to resolving the California pension crisis, said
recently: “I think your city of Los Angeles is probably
two to three years away from being in the same position
that Detroit is where there is not enough money to pay
the bills.”
And the state of California has unfunded pensions
totaling $222.2 billion, according to California
Common Sense, a nonprofit and nonpartisan watchdog
group. What’s the plan for coming up with this unbeliev-
able sum?
Let’s be clear: There is nothing wrong with an employ-
ee belonging to a union. The original intent was for
labor to have a voice in their pay and benefits. Before
unions, management ran roughshod over labor and, as a
result, they worked long hours for little pay and few ben-
efits. Labor learned there was an advantage to gather
together and to speak with one voice; in other words, to
unionize. That way, if management refused to listen,
they could walk off their jobs until they did listen.
Yet we’ve now seen what happens when labor goes too
far. Management has to focus on the bottom line, and
when labor costs are too high, that business can’t com-
pete and eventually goes out of business, which is bad
for labor and management. This was and is a necessary
check on labor.
Somehow it was decided that the public sector should
also be unionized. This group quickly realized they
wielded considerable power, and not just at the negotiat-
ing table, but in the voting booth. Elected officials
rushed to curry favor. Unions learned quickly they could
get anything they wanted if they voted a certain way.
Those negotiating on behalf of “management” didn’t
care about the bottom line. They cared about getting
votes and staying in power. Nobody bothered to do the
math and point out that the cost of their pensions and
health care was unsustainable. Taxpayers — who ulti-
mately have to pay the costs of these negotiations —
were never at the table.
Many want to look away from Detroit, and pretend that
Detroit’s problems were unique and different from the rest
of the country’s. Yet Californians should consider
Detroit’s story carefully. They’ll find that California’s
story has many similarities and, unless something is
done to change California’s path and get its fiscal plan
in order, it will have the same unhappy ending.

California, then for the Western Region, when Sen. John

Times-Standard of Eureka
n Humboldt County, money
does in fact grow on trees — or,
more precisely, closer to the
soil, indoors or out. It’s what’s being
done by some to cultivate the North
Coast’s cash crop that should give
anyone pause.
The evidence confronts North Coast
residents every day. Forests are being
trashed. Trees clear-cut. Waters pollut-
ed. Wildlife poisoned.
While it would be irresponsible to
lay these offenses at the feet of con-
scionable mom-and-pop pot growers,
no one with an Internet connection
and five minutes of spare time spent
looking at Humboldt County from a
bird’s eye view can say with a straight
face that things haven’t long since
spun out of control. Beyond whatever
problems are born of marijuana’s
quasi-legal status in California, there
is a price being paid for the plant that
powers, at an extremely conservative
estimate, a fourth of our local econo-
my: trash, toxins and scars left
And so we welcome the news that
North Coast Congressman Jared
Huffman recently introduced a bill
that calls for new penalties for damag-
ing the environment while growing
marijuana on federal public lands or
while trespassing on private lands.
The Protecting Lands Against
Narcotics Trafficking Act — or the
PLANTAct — would seek additional
penalties for anyone convicted of
growing marijuana on federal land or
trespassing on private land who:
• Uses poisons, chemicals or haz-
ardous substances;
• Creates a serious hazard to humans
or wildlife;
• Harms natural resources;
• Pollutes a body of water;
• Diverts, redirects or obstructs a
body of water; or
• Removes substantial amounts of
vegetation or clear-cuts timber.
While more than the concoction of
new punishments can and should be
done to address the serious environ-
mental damage wreaked upon
Humboldt County by unscrupulous
growers chasing the almighty dollar,
Huffman’s bill is a step in the right
direction — and an acknowledgment
that pot cultivation isn’t just an eco-
nomic, social or a medical issue.
The bill, co-sponsored by
Congressmen Mike Thompson, Doug
LaMalfa and Doug Lamborn, is now in
the hands of the House Judiciary
Committee, where we hope it receives
due consideration.
How ‘green’ is your pot?

Big movers

NEW YORK — A tepid jobs report
Friday barely dented a summer rally on
the stock market.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
ended the week 1 percent higher after
breaking through 1,700 points for the
first time Thursday. The index has risen
for five of the last six weeks. The Dow
Jones industrial average rose 0.6 per-
cent and is on a streak of six weekly
On Friday, indexes dropped in early
trading after the U.S. added fewer jobs
than forecast in July, curbing opti-
mism that the economy is poised to
pick up strength in the second half of
the year. The market gradually recov-
ered throughout the day and major
indexes ended slightly higher. The
gains were enough to set all-time
highs for the Dow and S&P.
The government reported that
162,000 jobs were created last month,
pushing the unemployment rate down
to a 4 1/2-year low of 7.4 percent. The
number of jobs added was the lowest
since March and below the 183,000
economists polled by FactSet were
Brad Sorensen, Charles Schwab’s
director of market and sector research,
said the jobs report was “moderately
“That tepid growth we’ve seen, (the
economy) not being able to reach
escape velocity, continues to be the
story,” Sorenson said.
Investors have been watching eco-
nomic reports closely and trying to
anticipate when the Federal Reserve
will start easing back on its economic
stimulus. The central bank is buying
$85 billion in bonds every month to
keep long-term interest rates low and
encourage borrowing.
While the jobs report wasn’t encour-
aging, it did make it more likely that
the Fed would take its time cutting
back on stimulus, said Doug Lockwood
of Hefty Wealth Partners. The stimulus
from the central bank has been an
important factor powering a four-year
bull run in stocks.
“As long as there’s this concept that
the Fed may still need to be involved
and stimulate, that’s good for both the
bond and the stock market,” said
Lockwood. “You’re seeing the trampo-
line effect; the market drops and then
comes back up.”
The S&P 500 ended Friday up 2.80
points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,709.67.
The index is up 6.4 percent since the
start of July. The Dow Jones industrial
average rose 30.34 points, or 0.2 per-
cent, to 15,658.36.
Seven of the 10 industry sectors that
make up the S&P 500 gained, led by
consumer discretionary stocks. Of the
three groups that fell, energy stocks
dropped the most.
Investors were also assessing com-
pany earnings.
Chevron fell after it became the lat-
est big energy company to disappoint
investors with lower earnings.
Chevron’s profit fell 26 percent to
$5.4 billion due to lower oil prices and
maintenance work at refineries. The
stock fell $1.49, or 1.2 percent, to
LinkedIn surged $23.58, or 10.6
percent, to $235.50 after the profes-
sional networking company’s results
topped analysts’ estimates. LinkedIn
had its biggest quarterly membership
gain since going public in May 2011.
In other trading, the Nasdaq compos-
ite rose 13.84 points, or 0.4 percent,
to 3,689.59.
The technology-heavy index got a
boost from PC maker Dell, which
gained 72 cents, or 5.6 percent, to
$13.68 after a special committee of
the company’s board agreed to an
increased offer from founder Michael
Dell. The deal would add a special divi-
dend for shareholders.
Government bonds rose after the
weak employment report. The yield on
the 10-year Treasury note, which falls
when the note’s price increases, fell to
2.60 percent from 2.71 percent
Thursday. Bonds were regaining some
lost ground after a sell-off Thursday
prompted by a string of promising
economic reports.
Investors will have to live with
increasing volatility in the bond mar-
ket in coming months as the Federal
Reserve eventually begins to wind
down its stimulus program, said Ron
Florance, managing director of invest-
ment strategy for Wells Fargo Private
The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note is 1 percentage point higher than
it was May 3, when it hit a low for the
year of 1.63 percent.
Investors “are used to having stabil-
ity in their bonds and volatility in
their stocks,” Florance said. “In the
next 18 months it could be exactly the
opposite, with stability in the stock
market and volatility in the bond mar-

FDA defining what
‘gluten free’ means on packages
WASHINGTON — Alabel that reads “gluten free” will
now mean the same thing for all food, regardless of which
kind you buy.
After more than a six-year delay, the Food and Drug
Administration has set a new standard for labels that will
make shopping easier for consumers on gluten-restricted
diets. Until now, the term “gluten free” had not been reg-
ulated, and manufacturers made their own decisions about
what it means.
Under an FDA rule announced Friday, products labeled
“gluten free” still won’t have to be technically free of
wheat, rye and barley and their derivatives. But they will
have to contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten.
That amount is generally recognized by the medical
community to be low enough so that most people who
have celiac disease won’t get sick if they eat it.
People who suffer from celiac disease don’t absorb
nutrients well and can get sick from the gluten found in
wheat and other cereal grains. Other countries already
have similar standards.
Yahoo buys social Web browser maker Rockmelt
SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo has acquired Rockmelt, a
Silicon Valley startup that built a Web browser tied to
Facebook’s social network.
Terms of the deal announced Friday weren’t disclosed.
It’s the 20th acquisition that Yahoo Inc. has completed
since Marissa Mayer became the Sunnyvale company’s
CEO nearly 13 months ago.
Rockmelt has raised about $40 million from venture
capitalists and other investors since its inception. That
makes it likely Yahoo had to be above that amount to buy
Most of Yahoo’s purchases have been for relatively
small amounts of money. There has been one notable
exception so far: Yahoo’s $1.1 billion acquisition of
Internet blogging service Tumblr.
Chevron’s 2Q profit falls on lower oil prices
Chevron’s latest quarterly profit was huge — $5.37 bil-
lion — but down 26 percent from last year due to lower oil
prices, less production, and maintenance work at some
The results mirrored lower profit at Exxon Mobil and
Shell, and they also lagged Wall Street expectations.
Chevron shares fell $1.49, or 1.2 percent, to $124.95

WASHINGTON — The U.S. econo-
my is steadily adding jobs — just not
at a consistently strong pace.
July’s modest gain of 162,000 jobs
was the smallest since March. And
most of the job growth came in
lower-paying industries or part-time
The unemployment rate fell from
7.6 percent to a 4 1/2-year low of 7.4
percent, still well above the 5 per-
cent to 6 percent typical of a healthy
economy. The rate fell because more
Americans said they were working,
though some people stopped looking
for a job and were no longer counted
as unemployed.
All told, Friday’s report from the
Labor Department pointed to a less-
than-robust job market. It suggested
that the economy’s subpar growth
and modest consumer spending are
making many businesses cautious
about hiring.
The report is bound to be a key fac-
tor in the Federal Reserve’s decision
on whether to slow its bond purchas-
es in September, as many economists
have predicted it will do. Some think
July’s weaker hiring could make the
Fed hold off on any pullback in its
bond buying, which has helped keep
long-term borrowing costs down.
Friday’s report said employers
added a combined 26,000 fewer jobs
in May and June than the government
had previously estimated. Americans
also worked fewer hours in July, and
their average pay dipped.
For the year, job growth has
remained steady. The economy has
added an average of 200,000 jobs a
month since January, though the pace
has slowed in the past three months
to 175,000.
Nariman Behravesh, chief econo-
mist at IHS Global Insight, called the
employment report “slightly nega-
tive,” in part because job growth for
May and June was revised down.

By Michael Liedtke
SAN FRANCISCO — Dell’s board
rejected CEO Michael Dell’s attempt to
change the voting rules for his bid to
buy the slumping personal computer
maker, a decision that is likely to
doom the deal.
But the endangered buyout could still
get a reprieve if Michael Dell and his
allies accept a counterproposal that
would extend the voting period for a
third time and allow a bigger pool of
shareholders to cast ballots.
The rebuff announced Wednesday
marks the latest blow that Michael
Dell and his main backer, Silver Lake
Partners, have absorbed since reaching
an agreement with Dell Inc.’s board
nearly six months ago to buy the
Round Rock, Texas, company for
$24.4 billion, or $13.65 per share.
A vote on Michael Dell’s offer is
scheduled to be held Friday. He had
proposed a change designed to make it
easier for that bid to win shareholder
approval: In exchange for an extra
$150 million, Michael Dell wanted to
exclude shareholders who didn’t vote
from being counted as in the opposi-
tion column.
Dell’s board turned down that
demand, but said it’s willing to post-
pone Friday’s vote and give sharehold-
ers several more weeks to consider the
buyout proposal if Michael Dell and
Silver Lake don’t withdraw the slight-
ly higher offer of $24.6 billion, or
$13.75 per share, dangled before the
company last week.

MENLO PARK — Facebook’s resur-
gent stock has closed above its IPO
price for the first time since the online
social networking leader made its
debut on Wall Street more than 14
months ago.
The shares gained 56 cents to finish
Friday’s session at $38.05. That’s the
stock’s highest closing price since
ending its first day of trading at
$38.23 in May of last year.
Facebook Inc. priced its initial pub-
lic offering at $38 per share amid lofty
expectations that investors would be
clamoring to buy a stake in one of the
world’s best-known websites. Instead,
trading glitches marred the company’s
stock market debut and then worries
about Facebook’s growth prospects
triggered a sell-off that dropped the
stock as low as $17.55.
The stock began soaring last week
when Facebook reported better sec-
ond-quarter earnings than analysts
anticipated. The report for the three
months ended in June showed that the
Menlo Park company is selling more
ads on smartphones and tablet com-
puters, allaying fears that Facebook
wouldn’t be able to make money off
the growing number of its more than
1.1 billion members who regularly
check into the social network on
mobile devices.

As the Belmont-Redwood Shores All-Stars
took the field for its first game in the Little
League Western Regional tournament Friday
afternoon, fans were streaming into the stu-
dent union building at Carlmont High
While not all of the BRS fans could make
the nearly 400-mile trek to San Bernardino,
they did get a chance to come together to
watch the game and cheer on their team on a
pair of projection screens that were showing
the ESPN 3 Internet feed.
There was a lot of nervous energy early on
among the 100-plus fans in attendance, but
that energy turned into a celebratory mood.
After a slow start by the BRS offense, the bats
of the boys from BRS broke loose in the third
inning as it beat Arizona 8-0.
“This is tremendous,” said District 52
administrator Doug Rebert. “People don’t
understand. Northern California baseball is
very strong.”
There were cheers and clapping following
every good deed performed by BRS. So much
so that Roger Marcelo, uncle of BRS second
baseman Noah Marcelo, quipped, “I feel like
I’m in San Bernardino.”
No one was more excited then, when Noah
Marcelo gave BRS a 1-0 lead following his
third-inning laser over the left-field fence.
That shot brought most everyone out of
their seats and got the BRS offense going.
Turns out that would be all the offense start-
ing pitcher Sean Lee would need, as he put
together another magnificent performance.

The last few years have been a whirlwind
for Frankie Ferrari. After his sophomore
year at Burlingame High, the 5-11 basket-
ball guard transferred to Riordan in San
Francisco for his junior season last year.
This year, he is back at Burlingame and
awaiting word from the Central Coast
Section on his eligibility.
At least Ferrari knows where he’ll be after
he graduates high school, however.
Thursday, Ferrari verbally committed to
play basketball and attend school at
University of San Francisco.
“It’s just good people (at USF),” Ferrari
said. “It’s a great place to be. Coach (Rex)
Walters and his staff are really caring.”
Ferrari said USF showed interest in him at
the beginning of summer and offered him a
scholarship about two weeks ago.
USF was far from the only school inter-
ested in Ferrari’s skills. He said between 15
and 20 other schools were also in the run-
ning for his services, including the likes of
St. Mary’s and Santa Clara. Ferrari selected
the Dons for a number of reasons.
“Ultimately, it was a place I wanted to
go,” Ferrari said, adding the opportunity to
play close to home factored into the deci-
“I’m thankful for (all) the schools recruit-
ing me. It was an exciting process.”
Ferrari becomes the second player of
Burlingame within the last decade to com-
mit to play basketball up on The Hilltop.
Former Panther star Drew Shiller, after grad-
uating from Burlingame in 2005, played
one year at USF before transferring to
Last season with the Crusaders, Ferrari
averaged 10.8 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.6
assists and one steal per game as they fin-
ished the year with a record of 20-12 overall
and 7-7 in the rugged West Catholic
Athletic League. Riordan advanced to the

NAPA— The Oakland Raiders signed kicker
Sebastian Janikowski to a four-year extension
Friday, ensuring the franchise’s leading scorer
will remain with the team through at least
Janikowski is coming off the best season of
his career. He converted a career-best 91.2 per-
cent (31 of 34) of his field goal attempts in
2012. The only misses came from 51, 61 and
64 yards.
“Where else would I go?” Janikowski said.
“I love California, I love
being here and I see the
changes. I think we’re
moving in the right direc-
tion. People are going to
be surprised this year what
we can do.”
The 17th overall pick in
2000, Janikowski has led
the Raiders in scoring in
each of his 13 seasons
while cementing his repu-
tation as one of the most powerful kickers in
the game.
He’s also been one of the few consistent
bright spots for a franchise that hasn’t had a
winning record in more than a decade.
The 35-year-old kicker has made 42 field
goals from 50 yards or longer and needs only
11 more to break Jason Hanson’s NFL record
of 52. He is tied with former Seattle kicker
John Kasay for second on the list.
Janikowski already owns multiple league
records, including a share of the mark for the
longest field goal made at 63 yards. He also
has made one from 61 yards, giving him two
of the top three longest field goals in league
Still, the decision to give Janikowski an
extension before the regular season begins
was slightly surprising. Oakland opted not to
re-sign perennial Pro Bowl punter Shane
Lechler in the offseason, breaking up one of
the top kicking tandems in the NFL. Lechler,
drafted in the same season as Janikowski,
signed with the Houston Texans.
Not long after that, Janikowski told
reporters he wanted to remain with the Raiders
for his entire career. Now he gets that chance.
“That was the goal,” Janikowski said. “I

SANTACLARA— The San Francisco 49ers
signed wide receivers Austin Collie and
Lavelle Hawkins to one-year deals Friday
after both veteran free agents worked out for
the team earlier in the day.
The 49ers made the moves to help bolster a
receiver unit that has been decimated by
injuries. San Francisco began training camp
last week without top wideout Michael
Crabtree — out for at least half the season
after tearing his Achilles tendon in May —
and three other receivers have missed time
this week.
Collie played the past four seasons with
the Indianapolis Colts, but appeared in only
one game last year due to injury. He had 173
receptions during his first three seasons with
the Colts.
Hawkins was released by New England on
Wednesday after playing five seasons with
the Tennessee Titans. Hawkins had 47 recep-
tions for the Titans in 2011 and 71 overall
with Tennessee.
Mario Manningham, who started 10 games
at wide receiver for the 49ers last season, has
yet to practice this summer while he contin-
ues to rehabilitate a knee injury suffered in a
Dec. 23 game. Kyle Williams — who like
Manningham tore knee ligaments last sea-
son — and receivers A.J. Jenkins and Kassim
Osgood each have missed practices this week
because of apparent hamstring injuries.
To make room on their roster for the two
newcomers, the 49ers waived rookie center

SANTACLARA— San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris
Culliver will miss the season with a torn ACL in his left
Culliver was injured Thursday during a non-contact drill.
Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Friday that the loss of
the third-year veteran “puts stress” on a cornerback group
that faltered late last season and in the playoffs during San
Francisco’s run to the Super Bowl.
The 49ers brought in four-time All-Pro Nnamdi Asomugha
in April to augment the position behind starters Carlos
Rogers and Tarell Brown. The team returned its top five cor-
nerbacks from last season.
Culliver was San Francisco’s third cornerback the past two
seasons and played a key role in the team’s coverage pack-
ages, often taking over at left cornerback when the 49ers
went to their nickel defense.
Now the 49ers have to groom some-
body else for that role, which could
affect how the team uses even its pro-
jected starters this season.
“Obviously we took a shot (Thursday)
and it puts a stress on everybody else in
that group,” Fangio said. “We’ve got the
guys that were here last year and we
brought in Nnamdi to try and help shore
up that group, and right now we’re just
going to have to see how it sorts itself
out here in the preseason games and
through the rest of practices.”
Culliver was San Francisco’s biggest cornerback last year
and often was used in press coverage on the left side when the
49ers went with more than their regular four starting defen-
sive backs. San Francisco, which ranked third in the NFLi n
total defense last year, went with extra defensive backs on
nearly 70 percent of its defensive plays last season.
Fangio said regular right cornerback Brown could get a
look on the left side and also covering slot receivers in nick-
el pages. Regular left cornerback Rogers usually covered
slot receivers when the 49ers used three cornerbacks in cov-
erage last season.
Holdover veterans Tramaine Brock and Perrish Cox also
could move up in the pecking order at cornerback. Brock had
two interceptions in 2011 while getting regular action as the
team’s third cornerback before losing the job to Culliver
after a hand injury.
“Now may be an opportunity for him to go out there and
show what he’s got and take his shot,” Fangio said.
Cox had 14 tackles and knocked down two passes in his
first year with the 49ers last season.
Despite finishing fourth in the NFL in pass defense last
season, San Francisco’s pass coverage had some rocky per-
formances near the end of the year. Green Bay’s Aaron
Rodgers, Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and Baltimore’s Joe Flacco
combined to torch the Niners for 940 yards and eight touch-
down passes in three postseason games.

CANTON, Ohio — While his six other classmates for this
weekend’s enshrinement sported blue golf shirts given them
by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Cris Carter was dressed in
suit and tie.
He might never take them off.
“Man, I am in the Hall of Fame. I am wearing a suit every
day,” Carter said Friday as the 50th anniversary festivities
for the hall began.
Carter will join Jonathan Ogden, Larry
Allen, Bill Parcells, Warren Sapp, Dave
Robinson and Curley Culp as the newest
inductees on Saturday night. He was, by
far, the most emotional during a news
conference Friday as festivities began for
the 50th anniversary celebration of the
The only member of the Class of 2013
who didn’t win an NFL title, Carter used a
handkerchief to wipe away the tears when
asked about his career and the fact it took six tries to get
“Minnesota fans didn’t judge me when a lot of bad things
were being said about me,” Carter said, frequently pausing to
regain his composure. “They always cheered for Cris. The
only thing I really wish is we could’ve won that champi-
onship for those people. What they did for my life, every
day I went out there, I played for those people.”
Carter was exiled from Philadelphia in 1989 after off-field
problems, including drug and alcohol issues. The first one to
call him and offer a job was Parcells.
Carter ever told his agent he wanted to go to the Giants,
but he wound up with the Vikings, who had a stronger need
for a wide receiver. All Carter did the rest of his 16-season
career was wind up second at his retirement in 2002 behind
Jerry Rice for all-time receptions and touchdowns. He’s
fourth in those categories now.
As he mentioned, though, he doesn’t have that champi-
onship. For the other six, those Super Bowl rings will have
a blinding shine to them Saturday night.
Parcells was a winner of two NFLtitles as a coach and mas-
ter of the franchise turnaround. Ogden, one of the premier
offensive tackles of his time, grabbed a Super Bowl ring in
2000. Larry Allen, a 1995 champion with Dallas, was the
rare equal of Ogden on the offensive line in their era.
Sapp, an outstanding defensive tackle with a personality
as big as any football stadium, won the 2002 championship
in Tampa Bay. Robinson, a major cog in Green Bay’s cham-
pionship machine under Vince Lombardi, won the first two
Super Bowls. Culp, one of the original pass-rushing demons
at defensive tackle, got his ring with the 1969 Chiefs.
Quite a group, and a record 121 hall members are expected
to attend the ceremonies.
“It’s somewhat overwhelming,” said Ogden, the Baltimore
Ravens’ first-ever draft choice and the first team member
elected to the hall. “You look around and there’s Joe Greene
and Joe Namath — heck, they are all there, you can’t stop
naming names.”
Ogden, Allen and Sapp have the distinction of making the
hall in their first year of eligibility. It’s all the more impres-
sive considering all three were linemen.
Allen became the anchor of the Cowboys’ blocking unit
for a dozen seasons, then finished his career with two years
in San Francisco. He made six All-Pro teams and 11 Pro
Bowls, playing guard and tackle.
“It’s great, great company to be in,” said Allen, who
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones believes
“would have been a Hall of Famer at guard or tackle, and
either side. He was special like that.”
Adds Curtis Martin, the Jets and Patriots running back who
was inducted last year: “If there were two guys I would have
wanted to run behind, it would be Larry and Jonathan.”
Sapp, whose induction speech might be the most antici-
pated because he’s liable to say anything, was a cornerstone
of Tampa Bay’s powerful defense that was the key to winning
the Buccaneers’ only title after decades of futility.
“We took a place where they said careers came to die to a
place that’s become a destination,” Sapp said, noting the
Tampa 2 scheme is now played by defenses everywhere.
As for his speech, Sapp said he has “been trying to imag-
ine how everything will feel and still haven’t gotten it. My
anticipation is nowhere near complete.”
Like Sapp in Tampa, Parcells also was heavily involved in
making popular — and successful — a specific alignment.
The 3-4 defense came to life under Parcells with the New York
Giants, and he led them to the 1986 and 1990 champi-
Parcells, who also took the Patriots, Jets and Cowboys
from the bottom to near the top of the NFL as head coach,
says it was his duty to provide a prosperous environment.
“You give the players a chance to succeed to the best of
their ability,” he said. “That’s your job as a coach, your
responsibility. ”
Parcells mentioned his coaching tree, which includes the
likes of Tom Coughlin, Bill Belichick and Sean Payton —
all Super Bowl-winning coaches planning to be on hand
Saturday — as among his proudest achievements. He prom-
ised to bring that up during his induction speech.
Robinson and Culp were voted in as senior members.
Considering their pedigrees, it’s stunning it took so long
for them to make it; Robinson retired in 1974, Culp in
“That bust means an awful lot,” Robinson said. “That bust
will last forever. ”
Eclectic group to enter Canton
Cris Carter
PHILADELPHIA— The Philadelphia Eagles excused Riley
Cooper from all team activities on Friday as the wide receiv-
er deals with repercussions of being caught on video mak-
ing a racial slur.
Cooper has been sent away from the team to get help with
his issues, something the player and the team agreed upon.
Coach Chip Kelly made it clear after Friday’s practice, how-
ever, that Cooper would be back with the
team when he’s ready.
“There has never been any question of
cutting Riley,” Kelly said. “His status
with us is not in question.”
Cooper said the last few days have been
incredibly difficult and he will step away
to seek counseling.
“My actions were inexcusable,” he
said. “The more I think about what I did,
the more disgusted I get. I keep trying to
figure out how I could have said some-
thing so repulsive, and what I can do to make things better. ”
Cooper apologized profusely Wednesday after a video of
him using a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert last
month surfaced on the Internet. The Eagles immediately
fined him.
“Right now, I think it’s important for me to take some
time to reflect on this situation,” Cooper said. “The organi-
zation and my teammates have been extremely supportive,
but I also realize that there are people who will have a tough
time forgiving me for what I’ve done. The best thing for me,
and for the team, is to step away for a period of time.”
The Eagles did not set a timetable for Cooper’s return. The
team is off Saturday. They will return Sunday and then will
host the New England Patriots on Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday before playing the Patriots, Friday night in the
preseason opener.
“He will meet with professionals provided by the Eagles
during this period of time to better help him understand how
his words have hurt so many, including his teammates,” the
team said in a statement.
Cooper spoke to the media again after practice Thursday,
telling them his meeting with teammates a night earlier was
“extremely emotional.” Teammates Michael Vick, Jason
Avant and others expressed forgiveness for Cooper. LeSean
McCoy also said he forgives Cooper, but “I can’t really
respect somebody like that.”
Cooper, who grew up in Clearwater, Fla., was selected in
the fifth round of the 2010 draft by the Eagles out of the
University of Florida. He has just 46 catches and five touch-
downs in three years with the Eagles, but has been practic-
ing with the starters since Jeremy Maclin’s season-ending
knee injury last week.
“As long as it takes, and whatever I have to do, I’m going
to try to make this right,” Cooper said.
Players on the team continue to be asked about Cooper’s
situation, making it a distraction or as wide receiver DeSean
Jackson called it, “a burden.” Cornerback Cary Williams, a
free agent addition to the Eagles this past offseason, tried to
put it all in the perspective.
“This is about history,” Williams said. “Some of us have
had ancestors killed over that word. There is a lot of history
behind it. That history needs to be addressed. I remember
my grandmother telling me stories how she was called the
n-word, while being bitten by dogs and hosed.
“Why did Riley say this? That’s a question that needs to
be asked. I still think it is the elephant in the room.”
Williams also said it doesn’t matter who you are or what
color you are the word should never be used.
“Nobody should say it,” he said. “I don’t care if you white,
black, blue, green or purple. The hip-hop culture uses the
word and has de-emphasized it. You need to go back and see
what our ancestors did to try and rid themselves of that
The Eagles do not plan to rid themselves of Cooper per-
manently. When he comes back, how will he be treated is
the next question.
“He’s our teammate. He hasn’t been released from our
team, so whatever he has to handle, he has to handle,”
Jackson said. “As far as the rest of the team, we have to
focus on what we want to accomplish this season and not let
this be a burden.”

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Brandon Belt
got the previous three games off in
Philadelphia for a mental break and work on
his swing, and the first results were out-
Belt had three hits, coming within a dou-
ble of hitting for the cycle, as the San
Francisco Giants beat the Tampa Bay Rays
4-1 on Friday night.
“He looked great,” Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said. “We talked in Philly, and he’s
all in with trying to make a couple adjust-
ments. It’s not easy to do it for a day, so
give three days to work on it. It was good
for him.”
Belt has loosened the grip on the bat and
is positioned deeper in the batter’s box. He
called Friday’s success a 60-40 split, with
the higher percentage being for the batting
“I think mentally I’ve stayed in there
pretty well,” said Belt, who been mired a 1-
for-19 slide. “There’s just some things that
I need to work on to tap into my ability a
little more.”
Madison Bumgarner struck out 11 in
seven innings and Brandon Crawford hit a
two-run homer for San Francisco, which was
won three straight. The defending World
Series champions are 10 games under .500.
This was the first time
since 2004 that the teams
Tampa Bay has lost
two in a row, including
its first game in August.
The Rays went 21-5 in
Bumgarner (11-7) gave
up one run, working
around seven hits and
three walks. He tied his season high for
Bumgarner’s current nine-start stretch of
allowing two earned runs or less and pitch-
ing at least seven innings is the second-
longest in franchise history since records
are available, behind the New York Giants’
Ferdie Schupp’s 12 in 1916-17.
“Any time you’re able to battle through
when you don’t necessarily have the com-
mand you’re used to having, it makes it a
tougher kind of battle,” Bumgarner said.
“You’re going to have games like that.”
Sergio Romo got two outs for his 26th
After Belt hit an RBI triple in the seventh
against Chris Archer (6-4), Crawford fol-
lowed with his home run for a 4-1 lead.
Archer allowed four runs and seven hits in
seven innings. He had permitted just two
runs — one earned — over 31 innings in
winning his previous four starts.
Belt got the Giants’ first two hits off
Archer. He singled in the third and tied it at
1 with his homer in the fifth, which stopped
a career-high stretch of 18 shutout innings
for Archer.
“Everything I threw, Belt saw,” Archer
said. “Afastball down and he kind of crushed
it. Fastball first pitch, he went the other
way for a base hit. So I figured I’ll try a
changeup, mix it up, but he saw that well,
too (for the homer).”
Ben Zobrist put the Rays ahead 1-0 with
an RBI single in the third. Bumgarner, who
had a 16-inning scoreless streak end, avoid-
ed a big inning by getting an inning-ending
pop fly from Sean Rodriguez with the bases
Bumgarner worked out of a two-on, no-out
jam in the fifth by retiring Evan Longoria,
Wil Myers and Rodriguez.
“Just a tough competitor,” Bochy said.
“Going seven innings, one run, shows you
how good he is. He was without his good
command tonight.”
This is just the third series between the
teams. When they last played in June 2004
in Florida, the Giants had Barry Bonds, and
Jose Bautista was on the roster of the then-
Devil Rays.
Giants win third straight, beat Rays
By Antonio Gonzalez
OAKLAND — Nelson Cruz shook off talk
of a pending suspension to hit a tying two-
run homer, Jurickson Profar added another
two-run shot and the surging Texas Rangers
beat the Oakland Athletics 8-3 on Friday
night for their fifth straight win.
Cruz, who is among 14 players facing a
possible suspension as part of Major
League Baseball’s Biogenesis investiga-
tion, hit his 26th home run of the season in
the second inning. Profar put the Rangers
ahead 6-2 with his fourth homer in the
The Rangers, who were six games behind
Oakland in the ALWest earlier this week, are
only 2 1/2 games back.
Brandon Moss’ two-run double in the first
gave the A’s the lead, but Oakland stranded
10 runners to lose its third in a row.
Tommy Milone (9-9) allowed six runs —
including both homers — and nine hits in 3
2-3 innings.
Jason Frasor (2-2) tossed 1 1-3 scoreless
innings of relief for the win.
After going 32 days without gaining
ground on Oakland, the Rangers are making
up for lost time. Texas has gained 3 1/2
games in the division in four days.
Rangers manager Ron Washington also
matched Bobby Valentine for the most wins
by a manager in franchise history.
Washington, the longtime A’s third-base
coach, is 581-501 in seven seasons.
All the good vibes still come in the shad-
ow of a looming investigation that could
deliver a major setback.
MLB is prepared to issue two simultane-
ous announcements no later than Monday, a
person familiar with the process told The
Associated Press earlier this week. One
would list players who accept suspensions;
the other would name those disciplined
without deals, but who could challenge
penalties before an arbitrator.
Most players face 50-game suspensions
for their links to the now-closed Florida
anti-aging clinic.
Barring a rainout this weekend, the
Rangers would have exactly 50 games
remaining as the head into play Monday at
the Los Angeles Angels. If Cruz files a griev-
ance, as a first offender, the penalty would
be delayed until after a decision by arbitra-
tor Fredric Horowitz. But the lengthy legal
process likely would risk his eligibility for
the playoffs and the start of next season.
Cruz has said he hadn’t made any decision
about a possible appeal.
Cruz cracked the tying homer just over the
400-foot marker in straightaway center in
the second. As he trotted around the bases,
the announced sellout crowd of 35,067
smothered him with boos — and each time
he was announced at the plate.
Rangers closing gap on A’s
Tiger Woods settles
for 61 at Bridgestone
AKRON, Ohio — Tiger Woods had a shot
at making history with a magical 59.
He swore he wasn’t disappointed to come
up short.
“Disappointed? Absolutely not,” he said.
Then he cracked, “A61’s pretty good. I’m
not bummed.”
Like a pitcher having to settle for a
shutout instead of a perfect game, Woods
could console himself by tying his career
best and building a seven-shot lead Friday
through 36 holes at the Bridgestone
Pursuing his eighth victory at Firestone
Country Club, Woods opened birdie-eagle
— stuffing an approach to 3 feet at the first
hole and holing a 20-footer for 3 at the par-
5 second. He had two more birdies on the
front nine, and had four in a row to start the
back nine in a light rain.
Needing to go only 2 under over his last
five holes, he missed birdie putts inside 10
feet at 15 and 17. He saved par on the last
with a 25-footer after an errant drive and a
shot that hit into the trees and ended up in a
bare spot short and right of the green.
“How about just pleased?” he said, when
asked to rate the round. “I’m very happy I
was able to post that. I just kept thinking,
whatever lead I had, ‘Let’s just keep increas-
ing it.’ It’s at seven now, I believe. So that’s
not too bad after two days.”
The 61 — matching his career best at the
1999 Byron Nelson, 2005 Buick Open and
on the same Firestone course back in 2000
— left him at 13-under 127.
Park’s grand slam
hopes slipping away
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Before she
can think of four in a row, Inbee Park has to
figure out how to make up an eight-shot
deficit at the Women’s British Open.
Playing in the strongest wind this week,
she had a pair of three-putt bogeys in a
round of 1-over 73 that left her closer to the
cut line than the lead.
The rough conditions were no problem for
Na Yeon Choi. She shot a 6-under 67 — the
only player in the windy afternoon to break
70 — and had a one-shot lead over Miki
Saiki of Japan. Saiki set the Old Course
record for the Women’s British Open at 6-
under 66 in calmer, morning conditions.
Park is trying to become the first golfer to
win four straight professional majors in one

BARCELONA, Spain — Wearing
fluorescent orange sneakers, Ryan
Lochte eased out of his seat and
moved gingerly toward the exit of
the Palau Sant Jordi.
It was the first time he was slow
all night.
“My whole entire body is hurt-
ing,” Lochte moaned. “There’s no
other way to put it — I’m sore.”
No kidding.
On a night when Missy Franklin
finally lost, Lochte turned in an
epic performance at the world
championships Friday. He swam
three races in less than two hours,
coming away with two gold
medals and the top time in an
event he’s competing in for the
first time at a major international
Certainly, this grueling triple
was worthy of a “Jeah!” —
Lochte’s silly catchphrase that
echoed through the arena every
time he dove in the water.
“Unbelievable,” said no less
an aut hori t y t han Bob
Bowman, Michael Phelps’ for-
mer coach. “An i ncredi bl e
night of swimming. ”
No one could find any record of
someone competing in three races
in the same session at either the
worlds or the Olympics. Phelps,
for all his accomplishments,
never did it at one of the major
international meets.
Bowman was asked where
Lochte’s performance ranked in
swimming history. He immedi-
ately thought of the night in this
same arena, a decade ago, when
Phelps broke world records in dif-
ferent events on the same night.
“It’s up there with stuff like
that,” Bowman said.
Lochte won the 200-meter
backstroke, posted the fastest
time in the semifinals of the 100
butterfly, and put the Americans
ahead to stay with a strong leg in
the 800 freestyle relay. Not bad
for a guy who took a long break
after the London Olympics and
slacked off on his training while
filming a reality television
show, “What Would Ryan Lochte

semifinals of the CCS Open Division, as well
as the Division IV finals of the Northern
California tournament.
“It was a good experience playing in a tough
league,” Ferrari said of playing in the WCAL.
Despite his limbo status playing at
Burlingame this season, “I think it’s still in
the hands of CCS,” Ferrari said, he was not
concerned about his prospects of playing at
the next level if his senior season was some-
how truncated. He said he already had other
scholarship offers from a couple other college
“Even if I didn’t play my senior year, there
were still going to be scholarship offers com-
ing in,” Ferrari said.
Besides, he said the club scene is much more
important to the recruiting process than play-
ing in high school, although the high school
season still has its benefits.
“If you don’t play club basketball, it’s hard
to get noticed (by college coaches),” Ferrari
said. “But once you get noticed in club, they’ll
watch you [in] high school.”
Ferrari played for the Lunardi club team and
did well playing in several NCAA-sanctioned
tournaments throughout the spring and sum-
mer. It won the Nor Cal Tipoff in San Francisco
and made it to the quarterfinals in a tournament
in Los Angeles. Lunardi then went to a tourna-
ment in Kansas City where it went 2-2.
“Overall, it was a great summer,” Ferrari
said. “Alot of guys got great exposure, which
is what it’s really all about.”

When (general manager Reggie McKenzie)
came in, they called me in the offseason and
they said they wanted to get something done.
I’m glad it’s done.”
The decision to give Janikowski an exten-
sion comes as the Raiders have made numer-
ous changes to their kicking and return units.
Besides letting Lechler walk, Oakland
signed return specialist Josh Cribbs and hired
veteran special teams coach Bobby April.
Then again, Janikowski has grown accus-
tomed to change. Since he became just the
fifth kicker in history to be chosen in the first
round, the Raiders have gone through eight
difference head coaches and seven different
special teams coaches.
Janikowski and 2009 defensive player of
the year Charles Woodson are the only
remaining links to the team’s last playoff
appearance in 2002. Woodson returned to
Oakland as a free agent after spending the last
five seasons in Green Bay.
“It’s job security,” Janikowski said of his
new deal. “It’s not in the back of your head
about what they’re going to do because of
what happened with Shane. I can just worry
about kicking and winning some games.”
Notes: Woodson made a diving intercep-
tion off a tipped pass from quarterback Matt
Flynn during the morning scrimmage. ... DT

Oden to sign with Heat
MIAMI — Greg Oden still needs some time to
get ready for the rigors of playing in the NBA.
He no longer needs a new team, however.
The former No. 1 overall draft pick has cho-
sen to sign with the two-time defending NBA
champion Miami Heat, ending months of sus-
pense over where the center whose career has
been decimated by a series of knee problems
would be attempting his comeback. The Heat
were long perceived as the frontrunners to land
Oden, and now have a 7-footer to help them try
for a third straight title.
Mike Conley Sr., one of Oden’s agents, said
Friday night that the former Portland center
accepted an offer worth about $1 million for this
coming season and would have a player option
for 2014-15.
“He just thought that it was the best fit for
him, where he’s at and especially for how it
relates to him coming back,” Conley said. “He
can be on a winning team and be working his
way in slowly.”
The contract is expected to be formally signed
early next week, Conley said.
“I think a 7-footer can help any team,” Heat
point guard Mario Chalmers said. “They’re hard
to find. I’ve known Greg since our high school
days, talked to him a couple of times about this
and you just hope for the best.”
Oden told ESPN.com on Friday night that he
still has “a lot of work to do.”
And during their recruiting process, the Heat
were obviously cognizant of that. Oden has not
played in the NBAsince fracturing his kneecap
in a game on Dec. 5, 2009, but the Heat surely
will not expect him to play big minutes right
away, given that they are bringing back most of
the rotation that won the last two league titles
and will almost certainly be favored to win a
third next season.

The observations are that the residential real estate market is back and here to stay for a
while! The 5 county bay area statistics show that the home prices have increased approxi-
mately 43% over the past 12 months. Some of these counties such as Santa Clara, San Mateo
and Marin had a head start from last year and now the Alameda and Contra Costa counties
gained ground fast! Despite the recent tick up in interest rates, which are still at incredibly low
rates historically and still under 5.0%,
the buyer demand has increased
substantially over the past few weeks
as buyers are now looking to secure a
home before the summer is over.
There are various reasons for this as
some are looking to get kids into
schools, some want to beat the home
prices going up further and some are
investors looking to beat the lower
rates of return in some other
Multiple offers are commonplace
and bidding wars are happening even
nationwide now! If you are
concerned about entering the market
as it continues to increase in value,
you must consider a longer term
perspective such as 5 to 10 years. So
far a home is still the only investment
you can live in, right?

After striking out 17 in the Division 2 cham-
pionship game, Lee struck out 14 Arizona
batters, limiting it to just a pair of hits —
both coming in the third inning.
Lee finished the game with a flourish. After
striking out six through the first three
innings, Lee struck out eight of the last nine
Arizona batters, including the final seven in a
row. Lee had at least two strikeouts in every
inning and struck out the side in both the fifth
and sixth frames.
That performance made Kevin Cooke
happy. The 11-year-old who was part of the
BRS 10-11 all-star team said Lee is his
favorite player. Cooke was at Carlmont with
his dad, Alex, to cheer on his friends.
“Playing for Belmont-Redwood Shores,
we’re out here supporting our community,”
Alex Cooke said. “It’s great having a local
team get this far.”
Noah Marcelo’s home run jump-started
BRS’ offense. It scored three in the third
inning, four more in the fourth and one more
in the fifth.
“It was just playing baseball like we’ve
been playing,” said BRS head coach Rudy
Lopez via telephone. “Good hitting, good
pitching. That’s a good formula.”
In the third, following the homer, Nicolas
Lopez drew a walk. Following a strikeout,
Dominic Susa came to the plate and singled to
left. Lopez originally stopped at third, but
the Arizona right fielder threw home where the
catcher couldn’t hang on to the ball and it
trickled to the backstop.
As Lopez broke for the home, the crescen-
do from those in attendance at Carlmont rose
until it erupted as Lopez crossed the plate for
a 2-0 lead.
Lee then came up and smacked an RBI dou-
ble off the top of the fence in right field to
drive in Susa for a 3-0 BRS lead.
In the fourth, BRS scored all four of its runs
with two outs. Noah Marcelo, who went 3 for
3 with a walk, reached on an infield hit. He
stole second and scored when Lopez drilled a
pitch off the top fence in right for an RBI dou-
ble. Lopez then came home when Brad
Shimabuku homered to straightaway center
field to put BRS up 6-0. It appeared the
Arizona center fielder had a bead on the ball,
but it flew over his outstretched glove, hit the
top railing of the fence and bounced over for
the two-run homer.
Susa followed with a single and scored on
Lee’s second double of the day to put BRS up
7-0. BRS tacked on its final run in the fifth
when Luke Bugbee scored on a Marcelo single
and an Arizona error.
Lee, meanwhile, ran into only one big
problem on the mound, but he wriggled out of
it unscathed. In the third inning with the
teams still tied at zero, a single to center, a
bunt and an error loaded the bases for Arizona
with one out. Lee, however, didn’t panic. He
got another strikeout for out number two and
then induced a pop fly in foul territory that
Lee squeezed for the final out to keep Arizona
off the scoreboard.
“Our boys, they don’t panic,” Lopez said.
“I think a big part of them developing as a
baseball player is working out of jams on
their own. Usually our kids stay pretty calm
and keep grinding.”
Belmont-Redwood Shores will have a day
off Saturday before taking the field at 9 a.m.
Sunday against Hawaii. Fans still here on the
Peninsula can root on their all-stars at
Carlmont, as all BRS games will be shown at
the school throughout the tournament.
For the players and coaches, they just hope
to follow the same formula that led them to
victory Friday.
“Coming to a tournament of this magni-
tude, you never know what to expect,” Lopez
said. “This was a good win for [us]. Makes
them feel like they belong.
“We just have to keep doing what we do.”

my main goal is to make sure it never hap-
pens again anywhere.”
The situation has also been a learning
experience for Ruane, he said
“We’ve been finding out that regulators
are not doing their jobs and now we’re
embroiled in a national issue about regula-
tors,” Ruane said. “We’ve found out the reg-
ulators have real internal turmoil. The sys-
tem in place at the time was not functioning
well and I want to make a difference on
national levels for other communities.”
So far, PG&E identified a cost of $100
million for immediate assistance for resi-
dents, paid $12 million of $50 million
committed to the city for recovery and
rebuilding and, as community restitution,
offered a total of $70 million ($68.75 mil-
lion plus five vacant lots valued at $1.25
million each) for a community benefit non-
profit, according to City Manager Connie
Afine to the state and penalties to PG&E
are still to be determined by the California
Public Utilities Commission but no part of
that fine is slated to go toward San Bruno,
Jackson added. Ruane said that determina-
tion may not come until October and there
are still a number of private lawsuits to be
“We also want PG&E to have to pay a fine
and penalties and not get away with it,”
Ruane said. “Some good has to come out of
what happened in San Bruno — we’re work-
ing hard to make that happen.”
While Ruane has focused his energy on
utility oversight reform, there is still the
business of rebuilding the damaged neigh-
borhood in San Bruno. New underground
utilities is in the process and part of the
rebuilding includes reforesting a damaged
canyon. Ruane estimates the neighborhood
will be completely rebuilt by the middle of
next year.
“The biggest challenge has been the
physical rebuild of the space — the emo-
tional is longer for some people,” Ruane
said. “We’ve been in the national limelight
a lot and a lot of people are looking at how
this was handled.”
The city has been affected as well, he said.
“It’s always been a tight community in
San Bruno, but I never realized how close
together it was until it happened,” Ruane
said. “It’s been traumatic, but it’s been
rewarding to get to know the people even
better. ”
According to City Attorney Marc
Zafferano, the city will establish the non-
profit foundation’s bylaws at or around the
Aug. 27 City Council meeting.
Ruane said the foundation could be used
for anything from upgrades to grants to
scholarships to a new library, but it’s
important that it’s what the citizens want.
Ruane also looks forward to community
events surrounding the 100th anniversary
of San Bruno, which is coming up next year
and the grade separation along San Bruno

around, development is coming,” Ruane

recovery. Who’s to blame?
Half Moon Bay, along with many cities in
San Mateo County, have passed ordinances
requiring property owners to maintain public
sidewalks adjacent to their property. Half
Moon Bay resident Lisa Kramer said she
learned of this law the hard way. Five months
after purchasing a home in 2012, a woman
walking in front of Kramer’s home tripped
on the sidewalk, suffered facial lacerations
and incurred $15,000 in related medical
expenses, Kramer said. To Kramer’s surprise,
she became the target in a potential
$350,000 lawsuit.
“My next door neighbor, who is a real
estate agent, told me a woman had fallen and
injured herself on the sidewalk. She said I
better check on whether I was liable,” Kramer
said. “I was perplexed; I thought, if she fell
on the sidewalk, how could that have any-
thing to do with me?”
Kramer’s homeowner’s insurance company
settled with the woman’s attorney for
$100,000, the maximum her policy covered,
Kramer said.
Half Moon Bay passed municipal code
chapter 12.18 Sidewalk and Tree
Maintenance and Liability in 2011. Due to
the amount of resources it could take to keep
track of these imminent damages, the city
chose to extend the responsibility to those
who frequent the sidewalks most, the home-
“When the city does become aware of a
defective sidewalk, this ordinance provides a
mechanism for bringing it to the attention of
the property owner responsible for fixing
it,” Half Moon Bay City Attorney Tony
Condotti said.
However, it is difficult for city officials to
keep track off all public sidewalks, particu-
larly with budget cuts. If the city’s public
works director is unaware of potentially haz-
ardous sidewalks and doesn’t warn homeown-
ers, individual property owners are still
“The city does not, nor does it have the
resources to, actively inspect all of the side-
walks in Half Moon Bay to determine which
need repairs. Property owners are generally
in a better position to determine when a side-
walk has a significant defect that might be a
trip hazard,” Condotti said.
Property owners have the duty to maintain
their adjacent sidewalks in a safe and non-
dangerous condition, the obligation to pay
for necessary repairs and are fully liable for
any harm that arises due to their defective
sidewalks. The Half Moon Bay ordinance
releases the city from any claims that arise,
putting the full burden of an ensuing lawsuit
on the adjacent property owner.
In 2004, the California Court of Appeals
held that cities could adopt ordinances that
extend a property owner’s liability for
injuries sustained due to ill-maintained side-
walks. The language in the Half Moon Bay’s
city ordinance mirrors that of many San
Mateo County cities; including San Mateo,
Redwood City, Belmont and Burlingame; and
is fairly standardized across the state.
But the obligations these laws place on
homeowners are unjust because the paths are
owned by the city, not individuals, Kramer
“You don’t think of yourself as liable for
public property. Homeowners are generally
liable for property that we control, not for
property that anybody can use,” Kramer said.
Unlike on private property, a homeowner
doesn’t have the discretion to direct people
away, particularly those who are more sus-
ceptible to injury, from their adjacent side-
walks in an attempt to avoid liability,
Kramer said.
“You don’t even think of the sidewalk as
yours, because anybody could use it. People
can’t come into your car or your house unin-
vited. You don’t think about needing to
insure yourself for public property,” Kramer
Many property owners are ignorant of the
law and therefore don’t have the opportunity
to protect themselves, Kramer said.
Thankfully, her insurance company stepped
in and mediated the claim, Kramer said.
“I carry much higher insurance coverage
than before now that I’m aware I’m responsi-
ble for [the city’s] property. There are proba-
bly a lot of people at great risk and they
don’t even know it,” Kramer said.
Over time and in many cases due to expand-
ing tree roots, sidewalks can warp and turn
hazardous to pedestrians. Repairing these
imminent damages is costly.
Because sidewalks are owned by the city,
an individual must obtain permits before
conducting repairs at their own expense. The
pricing for permits depends on the value of
the work being done, whether there is
infringement on trees that would need to be
removed, the amount of time an inspector
spends examining the property as well as
other factors.
Property owners are further responsible for
costs associated with the physical work to
repair damaged sidewalks. For homeowners,
inheriting liability for property that was ini-
tially out of their control and ill-maintained
is unacceptable, Kramer said.
“If you’re going to make homeowners
liable for what happens on the sidewalk, is it
appropriate to do that after [the city] let it
deteriorate for 40 years?” Kramer said.
Kramer questions how the city perceives
its responsibilities and roles as government
officials. The city should protect property
owners by diligently notifying them of the
new ordinance and their inherited liability,
Kramer said.
“I wish that [the city of Half Moon Bay]
would not have allowed me to buy a home
without being aware that I was also buying
liability for their sidewalk. I wish they had
fixed the sidewalk before shoving the liabil-
ity off on me. I wish they had put a notice in
my mailbox that the sidewalk needed fixing
or had offered to fix the sidewalk for a fee,”
Kramer said. “Anything would have been bet-
ter than just passing off the risk [to me].”

Full disclosure: I never would have
I’ve read every book J. K. Rowling has
published, some of them several times over.
OK, all of them several times over. And
still, I doubt I would have picked up on any-
thing that would have made me think that
SHE was the author
behind “The Cuckoo’s
Calling. ”
I almost wish I had-
n’t known, so I would-
n’t have read it with
some of my attention
in search of clues that
would have made me
suspicious that the
book’s author wasn’t,
in fact, an ex-military
police officer and was
actually one of the
world’s most famous storytellers.
Because this is a good story, one that is
entertaining enough to merit a read even if
Robert Galbraith, Rowling’s pseudonym,
had been a real person who really wrote it.
“The Cuckoo’s Calling” introduces readers
to Cormoran Strike, a London private detec-
tive with his own complicated backstory —
he’s the son of a rock star and a groupie, has
a prosthetic leg to replace the one he lost in
Afghanistan during his military service, and
he just ended a difficult romantic relation-
ship. He’s also quite clever.
Along with his started-out-temporary-but-

There are plenty of jokes in

recent buddy-cop movie that also had
chemistry between its stars: “The
Heat,” with Melissa McCarthy and
Sandra Bullock. If they could carry a
laugh-filled action film without fre-
quent helpings of violence and tor-
ture, why can’t the men?
The script, written by Blake
Masters and based on the BOOM!
Studios graphic novels by Steven
Grant, is complicated — perhaps
unnecessarily so. We begin with
Bobby (Washington) and Stig
(Wahlberg) plotting a small-town
bank robbery, each believing the
other to be a disposable criminal, and
each trying for his own reasons to
seize the loot of drug lord Papi Greco
(an excellent Edward James Olmos).
They soon discover that instead of
the couple million bucks they were
expecting to find, there’s upward of
$40 million in the bank. To whom
does it belong? Well, wait, because
first we need to tell you that each
man also learns the other’s real iden-
t i t y. Bobby, you see, is a DEAagent.
And Stig? Navy intelligence.
Both are now on the run, pursued
by a shady character, Earl, who says
the money’s his and wants it back
(Bill Paxton, amusingly sleazy).
Earl, who’s always surrounded by
henchmen, has an unnerving interro-
gation method: it’s called Russian
But it’s not only Earl who’s after
the duo: Stig is persona non grata
with the Navy now, after running
afoul of a corrupt boss (James
Marsden, his usual charm untapped in
this role).
In short, the boys are in all kinds
of trouble, and we haven’t even told
you about Bobby’s girlfriend, Deb
(Paula Patton), who also works for
the DEA and loves Bobby, but might
be dating somebody else who ALSO
might be big trouble.
Confused? Well, at least you’ll find
yourself laughing often at the
Washington-Wahlberg banter. These
guys are funniest doing little things,
like quibbling over how much you
should tip a waitress — just after
they’ve set a huge fire to the diner
she works in and the place is about to
blow. Or discussing their relation-
ship — Stig’s the touchy-feely one,
hoping, he says, for an “Ebony and
Ivory” sort of union. He wants to
work “together.” Bobby wants to
work “in the same area code.”
But for each amusing exchange,
there’s a gratuitous scene that damp-
ens the proceedings. One of the
worst involves the torture of chick-
ens. Yes, that’s what we said.
There’s also a juvenile obsession
with male private parts, and guns
aimed at said private parts.
It all ends in an orgiastic shootout,
of course. Will there be a sequel?
Well, we’d like to see more of
Washington and Wahlberg together.
Hey, maybe they could join

tion takes Strike into the worlds of high fashion and big
money as he makes his way to the truth.
Rowling’s (er, Galbraith’s? Whoever.) literary gift is on
display in this work. She crafts an entertaining story with
characters who hold the reader’s interest, and comes up with
an ending that I’ll admit I was surprised by.
It gets a little too clever in some places, with the final
denouement tying together some earlier elements in a way
that’s almost a little too pat, and some of the leaps Strike
makes seem a little too out-of-nowhere. And it wouldn’t be
a J.K. Rowling book if it didn’t have lots and LOTS of
description, not all of which seems necessary.
But overall, it’s a fun read, with a main character you can
care about and one you’ll want to see again in other adven-
tures. It reads like Rowling had fun writing it. There’s a cer-
tain lightness to it that was missing from her other grown-
up fiction endeavor, “The Casual Vacancy.”

By Paul Larson
Have you ever
attended a funeral
or memorial service
and felt ill-at-ease,
uncomfortable or
awkward when
talking to the family
of the deceased? Have you ever stumbled
through your words and condolences
because you just didn’t know what to say or
how to say it? Have you even decided to not
approach the family for fear of saying the
wrong thing or making a fool of yourself? If
so you are not alone. Many people in this
situation want to provide some kind of
comfort to the immediate family, but just
don’t have the verbal tools to do so in an
assuring manner.
Learning “Funeral Etiquette” can be
useful. Using the right words at the right
time is an appropriate way to show that you
care, and in situations like this can be of
great help when provided correctly.
Standard condolences such as “I am sorry
for your loss” have become routine and
generic. A personalized phrase can be
welcomed such as “John touched many
lives” or “I will miss John”. DO NOT ask
the cause of death, offer advice or make
comments that would diminish the
importance of the loss such as “Oh, you’re
young and can marry again”.
Other ways to demonstrate your support
include: 1. Listening. The family may feel
the need to express their anxiety, and giving
them that opportunity can be therapeutic; 2.
An embrace. This can show that you care
without the need for words; 3. Offering your
services. This shows the family that you are
willing to give extra time for them: “Please
let me know if there is anything I can do to
help” (be prepared to act if needed).
Even if you don’t feel confident in
approaching the family there are other ways
to show that you care: 1. Attending the
funeral and signing the Memorial Book will
show the family that you took the time to be
there in support; 2. Dressing appropriately
for the funeral will demonstrate your efforts
to prepare for this special occasion (dark
colors are no longer a requisite for funerals,
but dressing in a coat, tie, dress or other
attire that you’d wear to any special event
are considered a way of showing you care);
3. In certain cases friends are invited to
stand up and offer BRIEF personal feelings.
Prior to the funeral write a few key notes
and reflections which will help you organize
your thoughts. Even if there is no
opportunity to speak before a group you
may have a chance to offer your thoughts to
the family following the ceremony; 4. A
personalized card or note will help you
arrange your words better and can be kept
by the family. If you don’t have their
mailing address you can send your envelope
to the funeral home and they will forward it
to the next of kin; 5. Providing flowers is a
long time tradition, or making a charitable
donation in the deceased’s memory will give
the family a strong sense of your regards; 6.
If appropriate a brief phone call can show
your immediate concern, but generally this
should be avoided to give the family the
privacy they may need.

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)

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Susan Cohn
Caldwell Gallery in Redwood City presents
“Nature and Travel,” a photography exhibi-
tion by Bruce Beron of Palo Alto. Beron’s
passion for nature and world travel provided
the inspiration for the 40 plus photographs
on display. Beron said: “I’ve been photo-
graphing my travels for over 40 years. I find
abstract design fascinating and I look for
the beautiful and unusual in unlikely places
and commonplace objects. Photography
has taught me to see the world differently,
with more intensity, more purpose and in
much more detail. I look for beautiful com-
positions, colors, shapes, textures—any-
thing the eye finds appealing — while try-
ing to capture unique images.” Nature and
Travel runs through Aug. 28. The Caldwell
Gallery is located on the first floor of 400
County Center at the Hall of Justice.
Running concurrently with “Nature and
Travel” is a second photography exhibit in
the Community Gallery, on the lower level
of the same building. This exhibit features
photography of various subjects by four
local artists: Ellen Lee of Belmont, Beth
Mostovoy and Julie Tremelling of Redwood
City and Sherrie Shipley of San Mateo.
WOODS. In the adjacent 555 County
Center’s Rotunda Gallery is “Fun Stuff Art,”
reinvented painted furniture by Nancy
Woods of One of Designs in Burlingame.
With a 30-year career in graphic design,
Woods breathes new life into vintage wood
pieces with her trademark bright, vivid col-
ors and whimsical designs. Many of the
chairs, tables and chests she finds are one-
of-a-kind and in need of repair. Woods said,
“Because the furniture is old, I sometimes
take pieces apart and put them back togeth-
er with new parts and glue. They are meant
to become useful again; maybe not as
hearty as when new but quite usable with a
new flair. The prospect of giving something
a whole new life is exciting and somehow
regenerating, not to mention thinking
green.” Some of her reinvented creations on
exhibit include a large rocking chair paint-
ed with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme,
while a discarded Queen Anne style table is
turned into a chess table with handmade
oversized wooden pieces. Old “courtroom”
chairs are recycled into whimsical home
additions and there is a San Francisco-
themed chair, using a vintage swivel office
chair. Woods said, “Each piece is a ‘stand-
ing’ art statement, but unlike a statue or
painting, it’s meant to be sat upon or used
in another useful way. Creating usable art is
a passion for me.” Fun Stuff Art runs
through December.
shows are sponsored by the San Mateo
County Arts Commission and curated by
Teresa Silvestri. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more

dreamed of studying at Paris’s Académie
Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture (Royal
Academy of Painting and Sculpture), one of
the leading cultural institutions of the time.
Instructors at the Académie emphasized the
importance of life drawing, because mastery
of the human figure was a vital skill for the
successful painter. The Cantor Arts Center
presents a selection of important drawings
from the Renaissance and the 17th and 18th
centuries, when the influence of the
Académie was at its peak, in “Storied Past:
Four Centuries of French Drawings from the
Blanton Museum of Art.” Fifty-five draw-
ings from The Blanton, located at the
University of Texas at Austin, chronicle the
development of drawing in France from
1500 to 1900, a period of rapid innovation,
tumultuous social revolutions and striking
changes in artistic styles.

pencils and sketchpads Saturdays, Aug. 3,

Weekend • Aug. 3-4, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Sandy Cohen
LOS ANGELES — Shailene Woodley calls fame “the F-
“I’m fine with the other F-word,” the 21-year-old actress
says. “But that F-word is too much.”
She better get ready. An actress since age 5, Woodley
earned notice — and an Independent Spirit Award — for
playing the angst-ridden teen daughter of George
Clooney’s character in 2011’s “The Descendants.” Starting
Friday, she can be seen in another indie, “The Spectacular
Now.” She may also play Mary Jane in “The Amazing
Spider-Man” franchise. And Woodley has just wrapped
work on a project that could bring her “Twilight”-sized
“I have a very, very fun life outside of this industry, so if
anything were to not happen or if things got to be way too
overwhelming ... I will go and be an herbalist,” says the
actress, folding her lithe frame and bare feet beneath her as
she sips a cappuccino made from ground mushrooms. “I
never want to stop. I want to act until the day that I’m not
here anymore. But the day it becomes boring is the day I’ll
That’s not likely. Not only is Woodley “a crazy positive
person by nature,” she just finished filming her most
empowered role yet. She plays the lead in “Divergent,” the
big-screen adaptation of the young-adult novel that’s been
compared to “The Hunger Games.” And if it’s as popular as
predicted when it hits theaters next year, Woodley may
have to leave her anonymity behind.
“I’ll never, ever think of myself as famous, even if I ever
get to the point of George Clooney ... because I think you
might go crazy if you start referring to yourself in those
terms,” she says, considering a future marked by paparazzi
and private entrances. “But the main thing for me is just,
I’m me, and I live such an amazing life which I’m so lucky
for and I have such amazing friends and the perfect family
... that I don’t see anything changing.”
She’s already playing by her own rules where she can.
She often skips makeup on red carpets to feel more like
herself. And when she does submit to full regalia, she tucks
a favorite crystal necklace beneath her designer dress. She
also talks about herbs and the environment every chance
she gets.
“In middle school, I became a really avid environmental-
ist,” she explains.
During a recent appearance on “Late Night With Jimmy
Fallon,” Woodley showed off some echinacea flowers she
picked while walking through New York City. During this
interview, she shares the vials of herbal tinctures she typ-
ically travels with, and offers a visitor an herbal cappucci-
no like the one she’s drinking.
“I was able to talk about something that I love on a show
that generally doesn’t talk about things like that, so
there’s ways to have fun with it,” she says of her Fallon
interview. “It’s cool to be in a position where I can maybe
start shifting the views on what it means to be a young
actor and what it means to be in this industry. ”
Her grounded nature and ability to effortlessly reflect
adolescent angst onscreen is why director James Ponsoldt
chose Woodley for “The Spectacular Now. ”
She plays Aimee Finicky, a shy, smart high-school sen-
ior who develops a relationship with classmate Sutter
Keely (Miles Teller), a popular, charming, hard-partying
kid who takes life as it comes. Though they appear to be
ill-matched, they help each other grow past self-imposed
Ponsoldt says Woodley reminds him of Sissy Spacek,
Barbara Hershey and Debra Winger — women who feel “a
responsibility to play their characters with the highest
intelligence... to not let themselves be cheapened or used
as poor depictions of womanhood.”
“Shailene knows exactly who she is and I don’t think she
feels like she has to sell herself out to have a career,” the
director notes.
As for “Spider-Man,” she filmed some scenes as Mary
Jane but was ultimately cut from the second installment,
due in theaters next year. She says the script for the third
chapter is still in development.
“We’re assuming MJ is in there, but they’re so tight
lipped about it,” she says without a hint of longing or dis-
appointment. “I would love to be MJ, but I think it’s just a
matter of my schedule and their schedule.”
Woodley’s, of course, is full. She’ll start filming the
independent medical drama “The Fault in Our Stars” with
Laura Dern later this month, wrapping just in time for
“Divergent” promotions to begin.
She credits her parents — psychologists who split when
she was 14 — for helping her develop a strong foundation.
When she first caught the acting bug at age 5 while accom-
panying a cousin to theater class in her hometown of LA
suburb Simi Valley, Woodley begged her mom and dad to
enroll her in the $700 program. She got an agent right
away and made 60 commercials by the time she turned 11.
“I had three rules when I was growing up: I had to stay
who I was, have fun and do well in school,” she recalls.
“And if I constantly abided by all three of those, then I
could continue to act.”
Woodley says she’s grateful to have grown gradually in
the entertainment business, “so I’ve been able to get it in
doses instead of all at once.”
It’s still scary when paparazzi follow her through the air-
port, which happened recently for the first time, but she’s
applying her sunny attitude to the challenges of fame.
“There’s this obsession in our society and in our culture
about actors,” she says. “The magazines and the excess and
red carpets and the heels, they’re kind of terrifying. I’m
able to handle it and it’s fun and I can enjoy it, but it’s ter-
rifying on a human level, just looking at our culture and
thinking, ‘In 50 years are we going to look back to this
moment in time and roll our eyes?”’
Actress Shailene Woodley ready to do fame her way

high-school senior who develops a relationship with
classmate Sutter Keely (Miles Teller) in ‘The Spectacular Now.’

‘The Spectacular Now’ is a pure gem of a teen romance graced with sparkling acting by its young leads, Miles Teller and
Shailene Woodley, as high-school seniors falling awkwardly in love.
By Jocelyn Novek
“Live in the moment.” It’s a pat piece
of advice we all get at some point in our
lives, usually when we’re being anx-
ious or obsessive about something we
can’t control.
But living in the moment can be
overrated — especially when everyone
else is suddenly looking to the future.
That’s the predicament addressed in
“The Spectacular Now,” a pure gem of a
teen romance graced with sparkling
acting by its young leads, Miles Teller
and Shailene Woodley, as high-school
seniors falling awkwardly in love.
Teller, the lesser known of these two
young stars, is a revelation as Sutter
Keely, a witty, fast-talking, happy-go-
lucky guy who oozes a sweet and cocky
charm. Always ready with a quip or a
glib excuse, he sounds something like
a younger Vince Vaughn. (Others may
recall John Cusack in his teen-flick
days.) Sutter doesn’t work too hard in
school, but he’s OK with that. “This is
our time,” he says happily at one
point. “Live in the now.” The spectacu-
lar now.
We first meet Sutter just as he’s been
dumped by his hot girlfriend, Cassidy.
As usual, he resorts to self-medicating
with alcohol. He ends up passed out on
a lawn, and when he wakes, he’s look-
ing into Aimee’s eyes.
Aimee, brought to life in a stunning-
ly fresh, unaffected performance by
Woodley, is everything Sutter isn’t .
She’s studious, thoughtful, hard-work-
ing, bashful — definitively NOT a cool
kid. So when Sutter starts hanging with
her, even asking her to the prom, we’re
instantly worried. We know he’s gonna
drop her, and soon.
But this is where the film, directed
with a sure and sensitive touch by
James Ponsoldt, breaks refreshingly
with teen-romance formula. Every time
we think Sutter, who’s still pining a bit
for sexy Cassidy, is going to turn into
the cad we think he is, he surprises us.
These little surprises make for won-
derful scenes as Sutter and Aimee move
slowly toward romance. Try not feeling
a tug in your heart when the two first
kiss, awkwardly but touchingly. Kudos
to writers Scott Neustadter and Michael
H. Weber for finding just the right tone
here — romantic, but not too sweet.
And that kiss leads soon to one of the
best scenes in the movie — the sex
scene. Normally, virginity-losing
scenes in teen films fall into one of two
extremes: disastrous (often comically),
or gauzy, accompanied by music and a
fade-out. Rarely are they simple, real
and raw, as the scene is here. You may
feel awkward watching, because first
sexual experiences ARE awkward —
but they can be nice, too. Here, it’s
Suddenly, though, the story
becomes dark. It turns out that Sutter
and Aimee do share one thing — lack
of a father. Aimee’s is dead, but
Sutter’s is merely absent. The teen
blames his frazzled, overworked
mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh, effec-
tive in a small part) for Dad’s long-ago

On paper, the couple have already
made money on their investment as
prices have risen nearly $100,000 for
similar two-bedroom units that are
still for sale.
Prices for homes at the Amelia start-
ed in the range of $715,000 to
$915,000 depending on the floor plan.
Starting prices are now in the low
$800,000s and about half of the 63
new townhomes have already been
sold, said Carolyn Bird, a sales coun-
selor with Tri Pointe Homes, the
Amelia’s builder.
The couple, both software engineers
who work in Foster City, got to cus-
tomize their home before moving in
Saturday and especially love the loca-
tion as it is close to work and the
Caltrain station.
The city has been planning for the
new community for years as it devel-
oped a plan to transform the transit
“I am thrilled to welcome San
Mateo’s newest homeowners to Bay
Meadows,” San Mateo Mayor David
Lim wrote the Daily Journal in an
email. “This development is the result
of the hard work of the entire commu-
nity and the addition of this new hous-
ing stocks keeps the city of San Mateo
as one of the most desirable places to
live in the country. ”
The City Council approved the Rail
Corridor Transit-Oriented
Development Plan in 2005 after it was
developed over a four-year period.
The couple looked at other town-
homes in San Mateo and Redwood City
but liked the fact they will be part of a
brand-new community at the state’s
newest and biggest transit-oriented
They know too they are moving into
the middle of a massive construction
zone as hundreds of more townhomes,
apartments, office buildings and a
school will be built on the 83-acre site
in the coming years.
But in their townhome, the construc-
tion noise is muted and they say they
barely even hear the Caltrain go by.
They look forward to walking out their
front door in a couple of weeks and
hopping on the train to go see the San
Francisco Giants play.
They already shop at the nearby
Whole Foods and the Marina Plaza
across Hillsdale Boulevard, which is
walking distance from their new home.
It will also be the perfect place to
live when they decide to start a family
as the development will feature a 15-
acre park and other family-friendly
amenities, they said.
Tanjuaquio and Poon bought their
home before the Amelia opened up its
model homes a few months ago.
“We just looked at the floor plan and
made a leap of faith,” Poon told the
Daily Journal.
They also researched Tri-Pointe
Homes before signing on with the
builder and even keep a spreadsheet to
track the number of homes that have
sold and what they sold for.
The first three sales releases at
Amelia and Landsdowne by Shea
Homes sold out immediately, accord-
ing to Stockbridge and Wilson Meany,
the master developer of the Bay
Meadows project.
The 93-unit Landsdowne project is
also currently under construction and
will have two-, three- and four-bed-
room townhomes. Its three model resi-
dences are set to open this weekend.
The first phase of the Bay Meadows
project was officially completed in
2011 with the construction of the new
Kaiser Medical Center and includes
housing, office and retail space.
In the second phase, there will be
five buildings of Class A office space
for rent, ranging from 95,000 square
feet to 185,000 square feet and the pri-
vate Nueva School. The development
sits between the Hillsdale and Hayward
Park Caltrain stations.
When complete, 1,170 housing
units will ultimately be constructed on
the sprawling piece of land that once
was home to a horse race track.
Although Deputy Mayor Robert
Ross misses the old horse race track,
he said the new Bay Meadows project
is a “spectacular addition” to the city.
“It offers a transit-oriented option
with the highest quality of living any-
where in the United States and proba-
bly the world,” Ross wrote the Daily
Journal in an email.

The nation’s fifth-largest rail system,
BART carries more than 400,000 com-
muters a day, keeping them off the roads
in a region routinely choked with traf-
“The inescapable fact is BART’s
capacity can’t be absorbed by the other
transit agencies,” said John Goodwin,
spokesman for the Metropolitan
Transportation Commission. “We’re
still hoping for the best, but it’s time to
prepare for the worst.”
As the union and the transit agency
continue negotiations, with key stick-
ing points focusing on worker safety,
pensions and health care costs, com-
muters are bracing for what could be the
second BARTstrike in a month.
When transit workers shut down train
service for four days in early July, road-
ways were jammed and commuters faced
long lines for buses and ferries. The
unions agreed to call off that strike and
extend their contracts until Sunday
while negotiations continued.
“I didn’t really fully appreciate the
magnitude of disruption of my com-
mute,” said Oakland resident Benny
Martin, 32, said the short trip to his
law firm in downtown San Francisco
took him two hours each way. If BART
workers strike next week, he just won’t
go into the office. “It’s just not worth it
for me.”
A strike next week could cause more
traffic mayhem than last month’s work
stoppage, which came around the
Fourth of July holiday.
“Without having a holiday in the
middle of the week, there’s a potential
for much greater congestion on the
roadways,” Goodwin said.
At a news conference Friday, Bay Area
and state officials called on BARTman-
agers and union leaders to reach an
agreement, saying a strike would create
financial hardship for working families
and hurt the Bay Area economy.
“We need an agreement and not a
strike in our BART Service,” San
Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said. “They
need to know that it is no longer a mat-
ter of inconvenience to the ridership. It
is hardship.”
On Thursday, two transit unions—
which represent nearly 2,400 train
operators, station agents, mechanics,
maintenance workers and professional
staff — issued a 72-hour strike notice.
They plan to participate in labor talks
up until the contract expires at mid-
night Sunday in hopes of averting a
At a meeting of BART’s board Friday,
union leaders urged the directors to give
workers what they called a fair contract.
“I’m here to say we will not be bust-
ed,” John Arantes, president of SEIU
local 1021. “We are more united now
than ever before.”
BART General Manager Grace
Crunican said Friday afternoon the two
sides were working hard at the bargain-
ing table, but they remain far apart on
wages, pensions and health care.
There’s still time to reach a deal before
the strike deadline, she said.
“Three days is a long time when
you’ve come as far as we have,”
Crunican told reporters.
Under state law, Gov. Jerry Brown has
the authority to seek a court-ordered 60-
day “cooling off period” that would
temporarily block BART workers from

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- To be productive today, you’ll
need to be exceptionally methodical. If you don’t have a
realistic game plan, nothing will be achieved. Plan well
and keep your nose to the grindstone.
VirGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Usually, you’re a very
patient and reasonable person, yet if your expectations
are not immediately met today, you could be diffcult to
work with. Don’t demand instant gratifcation.
LiBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Owing to people who
are deliberately opposed to your efforts in favor
of theirs, you might fnd it diffcult to achieve your
goals today. It’ll pay to smile through it all. You’ll get
your chance in due time.
sCOrPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Proft from a past
experience and don’t repeat a painful mistake. You’ll be
the one left holding the bag, and you’ll have no excuse.
saGiTTariUs (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It’s not a good
idea to volunteer to manage other people’s assets
today, regardless of how good a job you usually do.
Your skill in handling a certain problem in particular
might not be up to par.
CaPriCOrn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Dealing with
people on a one-on-one basis might not be your
cup of tea today, so be particularly careful how you
conduct yourself. There’s little margin for error.
aQUariUs (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Try not to help
others with complicated, tricky problems today
if at all possible because it could lead to some
unexpected snags and get you more deeply involved
than you intended.
PisCEs (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It may be time to
review your budget to see if you can fnd some
unnecessary expenditures. If you fail to cut down on
your outlay, the costs could get out of hand.
ariEs (March 21-April 19) -- Even though your way
of doing something might be far better than that of
your superior, it behooves you to make him or her
feel smarter by following his/her method anyway.
Things will still turn out all right.
TaUrUs (April 20-May 20) -- Should a problem
develop between you and a close friend, avoid harsh
words, at least on your part. It pays to remain calm,
warm and friendly when locked in dispute.
GEMini (May 21-June 20) -- A strong-willed
associate might try to pressure you into doing
something that would not serve your best interest.
Be as resistant to this person as he or she is
aggressive, and don’t give in.
CanCEr (June 21-July 22) -- There are no
guarantees that a partnership arrangement in
which you’re presently involved will ever produce
the favorable results that you’re hoping for. It might
sound good but work poorly.
