Peninsulaoffice rents up
By Angela Swartz
More office spaces are being
lled and built along the Peninsula
while rents are ticking up, which
experts say is a sign the economy
has bounced back.
On the Peninsula, average ask-
ing rents ended the year at $45.56
per square foot a year, up 8 percent
from last year, according to a
fourth quarter 2013 report by
Jones Lang LaSalle, a company
that provides commercial real
estate services for tenants, corpo-
rations and investors. Some ten-
ants in Silicon Valley looking for
100,000 square feet are rumored to
have expanded their search criteria
to include the mid-Peninsula, the
report stated. More investors are
beginning to warm up to the mid-
Peninsula. The market has seen a
signicant uptick in sales activi-
t y, likely triggered by the growing
number of tenant migrations to the
area, the Jones Lang LaSalle report
stated. Overall, the average asking
rate for San Mateo County is
$41.88 per square foot a year,
according to a fourth quarter 2013
report from Colliers International.

Wal-Mart eyes legal action
over donkey meat recall
NEWYORK Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
says its considering taking legal
action against responsible parties
after DNA testing showed traces of
fox meat in the donkey meat it sold in
Wal-Mart had recalled the donkey
meat which it said was considered a
popular delicacy in parts of China
after DNA testing by a government
agency. The company said Thursday
that it withdrew all products from the
supplier, Dezhou Fujude Food
Company, and that affected customers
were offered compensation.
It also says it plans to add DNA
testing to its meat products in China.
Wal-Mart, based in Bentonville,
Ark., has 404 stores in China. A
spokesman for the company, Kevin
Gardner, says only a select number of
stores were affected, but didnt give a
specific number.
Its not the first time a U.S. compa-
ny has encountered supply issues in
China, where food safety is a signifi-
cant concern among consumers. Yum
Brands Inc., which owns KFC, is still
working to repair its reputation after
a Chinese TV report in 2012 that

Homeless man not
hard rock bands drummer
GLOUCESTER, Mass. He wasnt
asked to play a few licks on the drums,
but police in Gloucester quickly deter-
mined that the homeless man they
found at a city business wasnt who
claimed to be.
When ofcers responded to the busi-
ness Thursday to assist employees
with the man, he claimed he was the
drummer for the 1980s-era hard rock
band Whitesnake.
The Gloucester Times reports that a
quick check of records indicated that
that was not true.
The man, who had no known address,
had been asked to leave an apartment
building earlier in the night when he
was found sleeping in the doorway.
The unnamed man was taken to a
hospital for evaluation.
Candy-craving thieves flee
warehouse empty-handed
HESPERIA For a pair of thwarted
Southern California thieves, taking
candy from a well-alarmed warehouse
proved a lot harder than taking it from
a baby.
Video surveillance captured the
would-be candy swipers as they
approached Candy Crates warehouse
in Hesperia on Friday. The men broke a
window and ed.
The company sells retro sweets like
candy cigarettes and Astro Pops.
Candy Crate operations manager
Randi Caporale tells the Victorville
Daily Press an alarm went off that like-
ly scared away the thieves, and not
even a Blow Pop was taken.
Caporale says the warehouse is in
the middle of nowhere, so maybe they
thought theyd come in and get their
candy on.
The facility is open to the public,
but the company sells most of its
candy online, so little cash is on hand.
Flight makes
emergency landing at Kansas
City International Airport
KANSAS CITY, Mo. An American
Airlines flight made an emergency
landing at Kansas City International
Airport after a ash drive was found in
a bathroom.
Airport spokesman Joe McBride
says the discovery was made Sunday
afternoon as Flight 24 was headed from
San Francisco International Airport to
John F. Kennedy International Airport
in New York City.
McBride says the Boeing 767 was
taken to an area away from the termi-
nal and was being searched. The 227
passengers and crew members were
evacuated. McBride says it is a new
day and age since 9/11 and that of-
cials take precautions if something is
deemed suspicious.

Presented by Health Plan of San Mateo and The Daily Journal
By Michelle Durand
When Dave Pine is sworn in as president of
the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors
this evening, the ceremony will echo ele-
ments of his joining the board nearly three
years ago.
The board reorganization is again at
Burlingame High School and attendees will
be entertained once more by the Ragazzi
Boys Chorus of which Pines son is a mem-
ber. There will be an air of celebration. But
Pine said there are some marked differences
between 2011 at the tail end of the recession
and now when the economic picture is quite
When I rst joined, the environment
focused on budget cuts and tremendous uncer-
tainty. We were really just trying to keep the
boat aoat, Pine said. Now its radically
improved and an entirely different atmos-
Pines turn as president will be as the coun-
ty launches programs funded by Measure As
half-cent sales tax revenue, more residents
have health care coverage because of the
Affordable Care Act and supervisors settle
into a new election system in which they are
chosen by only their district.
Its very exciting, he said. I feel very
privileged to serve on the Board of
Supervisors and its a terrif-
ic opportunity to make a
difference in the communi-
t y.
In May 2011, Pine, 55,
won a six-way countywide
race for the District One
seat vacated when supervi-
sor Mark Church was
elected chief elections
ofce and assessor-county
clerk-recorder. Pine was then re-elected to a
regular full term the following year.
Prior to becoming a county supervisor,
Pine was a past president of the San Mateo
Union High School District board and worked
at Handspring Inc. and Excite@Home.
Among his surprises in ofce was just how
much there is to learn about health care, men-
tal health and substance abuse and the array of
municipal services the county provides to its
unincorporated areas.
Pine is a vocal advocate of supporting chil-
dren and youth, bolstering the countys cash-
strapped parks system and nding greater
governmental transparency and efciency.
Heading into his presidency, Pine said all that
remains a priority while the infusion of
Measure Amoney will help keep many pro-
grams a reality.
Its a really good time for us to make
investments in prevention and early inter-
vention, he said, ticking off initiatives like
sustaining third-grade reading, services for
youth with mental illness and development

sea level rise. He recently helped host a con-
ference on the environmental topic in San
Mateo County and said it is time to make it a
Its been described as a slow-moving
emergency and its one we would be better
served to get ahead of, he said.
Looking into the proverbial crystal ball,
Pine said all signs are for the most part good
for the county with a few cautionary notes due
to the uncertainty of state funding.
Pine, a proponent of district elections, is
also excited to have the switch nally in
place and new boundaries nalized. He said
everybody is waiting to see to what extent the
supervisors, including himself, will be less
concerned about the entire county versus an
individual district but feels becoming more
attuned to constituents is a positive develop-

Suspect in S.F. consulate
arson says he heard voices
A Chinese national called police to tell
them he lit a blaze at the Chinese Consulate
in San Francisco on New Years Eve, telling
investigators he was driven by voices he
was hearing, the FBI said Monday.
Yan Feng, 39, of Daly City, told investi-
gators he unsuccessfully tried to use his
passport to ignite gasoline he had poured
on the consulates door and steps, an FBI
afdavit said.
FBI Special Agent in Charge David J.
Johnson said Monday that Feng was arrest-
ed at his home Friday after he called police
in Daly City, a San Francisco suburb.
The suspect, who has permanent resident
status, made his first court appearance
Monday on charges of causing damage to
property of a foreign government and
Johnson said the investigation into the
alleged motive is ongoing but the FBI
believes that terrorism, politics or civil
rights were not involved. Right now, were
looking at this as purely a criminal matter,
he said.

of federal charges said after Feng called Daly

arsonist, ofcers detained Feng.

223 S. San Mateo Dr. San Mateo
Jackson, Edith Charlotte
(nee Guest).
Passed away peacefully at her home in
Rocklin, CA on December 27, 2013 after
a brief illness. Born on October 3, 1925 in
San Francisco to Herbert and Charlotte
Guest, the family moved to Millbrae in 1939
where Herbert worked as a carpenter for
Niels Schulz building many of Millbraes
stately homes. Edith graduated from Burlingame High School in 1943. During World War
II she worked in San Francisco for Southern Pacic Railroad and Standard Oil, and was a
hostess in a canteen to servicemen passing through San Francisco. At the age of 16 Edith
was introduced to a tall handsome Australian Merchant Marine, and it was love at rst
sight. Four years later, once the war was over, Edith married Lionel Jackson and thereupon
was the start of 62 wonderful years of marriage. Edith and Lionels home in Millbrae was
a busy, happy home where they raised their ve sons and numerous pets, and where all
the boys friends and Lionels extended Aussie family were always welcome. Edith was the
consummate homemaker and was happiest when her growing family would gather together.
In their later years Edith and Lionel travelled to Australia and enjoyed road trips to Redondo
Beach and to Vancouver, Canada. Once Lionel retired from a stellar career in residential

A man who was struck and killed on
Interstate 280 in Daly City early Friday
morning after crashing a stolen car he was
driving has been identied by the San
Francisco medical examiners ofce as 32-
year-old Alfred Jeter.
The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. on
northbound Interstate 280 near the John
Daly Boulevard off-ramp, according to the
California Highway Patrol.
Jeter was driving a GMC that struck the
center divider. A woman driving a Honda
Civic then hit the stalled car, CHP Ofcer
Michael Ferguson said.
At that point, Jeter got out of the GMC
carrying a yellow duffel bag and tried to ee
by running across the northbound lanes but
then ran back to the center divider, Ferguson
Someone who pulled over to help tried to
tell him to stay out of the road, prompting
Jeter to allegedly throw a punch at him,
Ferguson said. The punch missed and Jeter
then jumped over the median into a south-
bound lane where he was struck by a car and
Other vehicles also struck him and those
drivers did not stop at the scene. By mid-
afternoon Friday, two drivers had contacted
the CHP to say they may have hit him but
didnt realize it until afterward, according to
Ferguson. He said those people will not face
charges in the case.
Ferguson said the car Jeter was driving had
been stolen out of Millbrae late Thursday or
early Friday. Asmall-caliber rie and a BB
gun, both reported stolen, were also found
in the GMC, according to the CHP.
Jeter was also found with a drivers license
that identied him as a 53-year-old man.
Ferguson said the CHP is investigating
whether the ID was also stolen.
The driver of the Honda that initially
struck the GMC was taken to San Francisco

SACRAMENTO An embattled state sen-
ator said Monday that he intends to keep
working with his fellow lawmakers despite
an ongoing federal corruption investigation
and a bitter nger-pointing exchange with
Senate leaders.
No charges have been filed against
Democrat Ron Calderon of Montebello,
who again denied wrongdoing in brief com-
ments to reporters after the Senate
Calderon said he was eager to join his col-
leagues, although there are signs they
might not be so happy to see him.
FBI agents raided Calderons Sacramento
ofces in June, and an FBI afdavit leaked in
October alleges that he accepted nearly
$90,000 from an undercover FBI agent and a
Long Beach hospital executive in efforts to
inuence legislation.
His assigned seat in the Senate chambers
has been moved from front-and-center to a
far corner, next to a vacant desk. He also has
been stripped of all committee assignments
while the investigation continues.

Lawmakers pledge
fiscal prudence for
California budget
By Juliet Williams
SACRAMENTO State lawmakers returned to the
Capitol on Monday for the second half of their two-year ses-
sion, one that is expected to be marked
by conicts over spending or saving a
budget surplus that was unthinkable just a
couple of years ago.
Members of the Assembly and Senate
appeared jovial during their opening ses-
sions, but many were looking ahead to
Friday, when Gov. Jerry Brown releases
his budget proposal for the scal year
that starts in July.
The independent Legislative Analysts
Ofce is projecting a $3.2 billion surplus, the rst one in
years, and many Democratic constituencies have their eye
on the money after years of cuts to state programs. Several
Democratic lawmakers already are advocating for higher
spending on certain programs, although the partys leader-
ship is preaching a more conservative approach.
Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles, said his top priority
will be securing Californias scal stability.
The cornerstone of that has to be creating a rainy day
fund so we do not replicate the patterns of spending and bust
of the past, Perez said after Mondays session.
He said his proposals will align with the legislative ana-
lysts previous recommendations to set aside some of the
funding and what he believes will be in the governors budg-
et proposal.
I think you will see that as the cornerstone for all deci-
sions and how we govern ourselves, Perez said. Our rst
priority is scal discipline and establishing a rainy day fund
for the future.
Californias budget decit was about $25 billion when
Brown took ofce in 2011. He was able to close it in large
part because of the national recovery from the recession and
because he persuaded voters in 2012 to pass temporary
increases to the state sales tax and income taxes for high
Assembly Minority Leader Connie Conway, R-Tulare,

WASHINGTON The Supreme Court on
Monday put same-sex marriages on hold in
Utah, at least while a federal appeals court
more fully considers the issue.
The court issued a brief order blocking any
new same-sex unions in the state.
The order grants an emergency appeal by
the state following the Dec. 20 ruling by
U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby that the
states ban on same-sex marriage violates
gay and lesbian couples constitutional
More than 900 gay and lesbian couples
have married since then.
The high court order will remain in effect
until the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals decides whether to uphold
Shelbys ruling.
The states request to the Supreme Court
was led with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who
handles emergency appeals from Utah and
the ve other states in the 10th Circuit.
Sotomayor turned the matter over to the
entire court.
The action now shifts to Denver, where
the appeals court will consider arguments
from the state against same-sex marriage as
well as from the three gay and lesbian cou-
ples who challenged the ban in support of
Shelbys ruling. The appeals court had twice
rebuffed the states plea to stop gay wed-
dings pending appeal.
Utah changed its constitution to prohibit
same-sex marriage in 2004.
Nearly two-thirds of Utahs 2.8 million
residents are members of The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and
Mormons dominate the states legal and
political circles. The Mormon church was
one of the leading forces behind
Californias short-lived ban on same-sex
marriage, Proposition 8.
Though the church has softened its stance
toward gays and lesbians in recent years, the
church still teaches that homosexual activi-
ty is a sin and stands by its support for tra-
ditional marriage.
Supreme Court puts Utah same-sex marriage on hold
On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court halted gay marriage in Utah by granting a request from
state ofcials appealing a lower-court ruling that allowed same-sex weddings to go ahead in
the heavily-Mormon state.

WASHINGTON The Senate plunged
into an election-year session Monday that
promises to be long on political maneuver-
ing and less so on accomplishment, begin-
ning with a slow-motion struggle over leg-
islation to renew lapsed jobless benet s
for the long-term unemployed.
Im optimistic, cautiously optimistic,
that the new year will bring a renewed spir-
it of cooperation to this chamber, said
Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in the
rst remarks of the year on the Senate oor.
Within moments, he pivoted, accusing
Republicans of never ending obstruction
to President Barack Obamas proposals
over the past ve years.
Atest vote on the unemployment bill
the years rst showdown was postponed
at the last minute until Tuesday morning at
the behest of Republicans, who noted that
more than a dozen lawmakers had been
unable to return to Washington because of
bad weather.
Even then the rhetoric was heated. Its
transparent this is a political exercise,
said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, moments
before Reid agreed to the delay.
Democratic supporters of the three-
month extension of jobless benets said
they were close to the 60 votes needed to
advance the White House-backed bill. Their
chances hinged on securing backing from
at least four Republicans in addition to Sen.
Dean Heller of high-unemployment
Nevada, a co-sponsor.
The bill would restore between 14 weeks
and 47 weeks of benefits to an estimated
1.3 million long-term jobless affected
when the program expired on Dec. 28.
Payments, which average about $256
weekly, will be cut off to thousands more
in the coming weeks as their initial 28
weeks worth of unemployment benefits
The bill is the rst on the Senates agen-
da for the year and part of a heaping portion
of leftovers from 2013.
House and Senate lawmakers are negoti-
ating privately over legislation to keep the
government operating normally when cur-
rent funding expires Jan. 15. Agreement is
expected quickly, since the two sides and
the White House reached agreement on an
overall spending cap before adjourning for
the holidays.
Aseparate set of talks is on legislation to
replace expired farm and feeding programs.
And just ahead is a requirement to raise the
nations debt limit.
The House is scheduled to return from its
year-end break on Tuesday, and already,
majority Republicans have served notice
they will continue to challenge Democrats

Have you ever been
entrusted to make
final arrangements
for a funeral?
Those of you
whove had this
experience know
that important decisions are required and
must be made in a timely manner. The next
of kin is many times required to search for
information about the deceased which may
not be easily accessible, and must answer
questions without the time to think things
out. Even though your Funeral Director is
trained to guide you every step of the way, it
is still best for you to be prepared with the
proper information if the need should arise.
Ask your Funeral Director what info is
needed before you meet with him/her.
Making funeral arrangements can be very
simple, or can become difficult at times if
you are not prepared. A good Funeral
Director is experienced in leading you with
the necessary requirements, and will offer
details that you may not have thought about
or previously considered as an option.
Allowing him/her to guide you will make
the arrangements go by quickly and easily.
A number of items should be considered
in preparation for the future:
1. Talk to your loved ones about the
inevitable. Give them an indication on what
your wishes are regarding the type of funeral
you want, burial or cremation, etc., and ask
them their feelings about plans for their own
funeral. This is only conversation, but it is
an important topic which will help break the
ice and prevent any type of confusion when
the time comes.
2. Talk to your Funeral Director. Write
down a list of questions and make a phone
call to your Funeral Director asking how to
be prepared. He/she will gladly provide
detailed information and can mail this
information to you for your reference.
Asking questions doesnt cost anything and
will help you with being organized.
3. Make an appointment and Pre-plan a
Funeral. Many more people are following
through with this step by making Pre-Need
Arrangements. Completing arrangements
ahead of time makes this process more
relaxed, and putting these details behind you
will take a weight off your shoulders. Your
wishes will be finalized and kept on file at
the Mortuary. Your Funeral Director will
even help you set aside funding now as to
cover costs at the time of death. Families
who meet with us at the CHAPEL OF THE
HIGHLANDS are grateful for the chance to
make Pre-Need Arrangements. With their
final details in place it helps to make matters
more calming for surviving loved-ones.
4. Enjoy Life. There are those who dwell
on situations that cant be controlled.
Taking time to stop and look around at
beauty in the world and appreciate good
things can be therapeutic. If you need to use
a negative statement, try re-wording it into a
positive. Change I had a lousy day today
into Today was demanding, but it made me
appreciate my better days. As the song
goes: Accentuate the positive; Eliminate
the negative; Latch on to the affirmative.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

BEIRUT Syrian rebels surrounded a com-
pound held by al-Qaida-linked ghters and
freed at least 50 people from a nearby prison
Monday as clashes between rival factions in
the countrys northern provinces spread to
the largest city controlled by the opposition.
The rebel-on-rebel ghting in Raqqa a
stronghold of the al-Qaida-linked group
known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the
Levant reects a widening war within a war
in Syria, this one against radical extremists.
It also adds yet another layer of complexity
to the broader Syrian conict less than three
weeks ahead of a planned international peace
conference to try to broker a political solu-
tion to the civil war.
Support from the U.S. and its Western
allies for the rebels has faded in the past year
as al-Qaida-afliated groups have risen to
become one of the most dominant forces
among the patchwork of opposition ghting
There was no indication that the move by a
mix of more moderate rebels and powerful
ultraconservative Islamist brigades against
the al-Qaida ghters was a reaction to
Western pressure to move against the extrem-
ist group. Rather, the violence has been
largely limited to communities where ten-
sions between the factions were already sim-
The number of towns, villages and neigh-
borhoods where clashes were taking place
spread across four provinces, providing an
indication of the extent of resentment of the
Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
Since spring 2013, the group has muscled
its way into rebel-held territory across north-
ern Syria, crushing resistance from other fac-
tions, seizing their weapons and detaining
their ghters. It has kidnapped journalists
and abducted activists who are critical of its

For months, sporadic clashes between its

BAGHDAD Iraqs prime minister urged
Fallujah residents on Monday to expel al-
Qaida militants to avoid an all-out battle in
the besieged city, a sign that the govern-
ment could be paving the way for an immi-
nent military push in an attempt to rout
hard-line Sunni insurgents challenging its
territorial control over the western
approaches to Baghdad.
The militants seizure of Fallujah and
parts of nearby Ramadi, once bloody battle-
grounds for U.S. troops, has marked the
most direct challenge to Prime Minister
Nouri al-Malikis government since the
departure of American forces two years ago.
Both the U.S. and its longtime rival Iran
view the escalating conict with alarm,
with neither wanting to see al-Qaida take
firmer root inside Iraq. Washington has
ruled out sending in American troops but
recently delivered dozens of Hellre mis-
siles to help bolster Iraqi forces.
Tehran signaled Monday that it is will-
ing to follow suit, saying it is ready to
help Iraq battle al-Qaida terrorists by
sending military equipment and advisers
should Baghdad ask for it. It is unclear
whether Baghdad would take up the
Iranian offer, made by Gen. Mohammad
Hejazi, the Iranian Army deputy chief-
of-staff, in comments to Iranian state
media. He ruled out the sending of
ground troops across the border.
Any direct Iranian help would exacerbate
sectarian tensions fueling Iraqs conict, as
Iraqi Sunnis accuse Tehran of backing what
they say are their Shiite-led governments
unfair policies against them. Iran has the
power to sway al-Malikis political for-
tunes ahead of upcoming elections through
its deep ties to Iraqs major Shiite factions,
which have dominated government ofces
and security forces since the U.S.-led inva-
sion toppled Irans arch-foe Saddam
Hussein in 2003.

Scientists say we are in for quite a bit
of trouble with the weather. We will
unfortunately have more hurricanes and
tornadoes. The cause is directly related
to global warming, which is in turn
related to too many particles in the air.
The cause is ultimately related to many
too factories causing more severe
smog. This will only get worse as time
passes. In the next century many low-
lands will be ooded. Parts of Florida
will have to be evacuated. Extreme
measures will need to be taken. I sug-
gest that in the next dozen or so years,
Congress should pass a law that puts a
tax on couples that have more than two
children. I suggest that the tax be
somewhat signicant, and that it
increases with each child a couple has.

Climate confusion
Snow storms and cold spells on the
East coast have deniers like Donald
Trump and other prominent
Republicans all red up. Despite the
indisputable trend to a steadily warmer
globe overall, certain places will still
be cold at times, and, of course, there
will be snow. Exactly because of a
warmer globe, there will be more snow
in those places that are still cold. It is
very simple. The warmer the weather,
the more water will evaporate from
oceans and lakes. When the atmos-
phere cant hold more evaporated
water, rain will fall in warmer areas.
And, yes, snow where it is still cold
enough for rain to turn into snow. And
because of climate change, storms will
be more violent as well.
For every unusually cold area, we can
point to other areas unusually hot. The
previously rather cold Nordic countries
are experiencing unusually warm
weather, and a lack of snow on which
to ski. Australia is blazing hot these

his past year has been tremen-

bisexual and transgender com-
munity. In June, the Supreme Court
announced that marriage equality
would be restored to California, while
simultaneously invalidating a federal
law that prohibited the government
from recognizing marriages between
same-sex partners. With these deci-

As chair of the California
Legislative LGBT Caucus for the past
two years, I am privileged to work
with my fellow assemblymembers and
senators to provide a voice of equality
in the legislature. Our caucus members
hail from both coastal and urban to
inland and rural areas and bring a vari-
ety of life experiences. Our member-
ship is composed of community
organizers, a formerly ordained min-
ister, teachers and small business
owners. The caucus is now eight mem-
bers strong, the largest since our
inception in 2002 and while we took
the time to celebrate our milestones,
we also continue to lay the ground-
work for the road ahead. We have
hired the rst full-
time caucus con-
sultant and formal-
ized policies to
strengthen our rela-
tionships with fel-
low legislative cau-
In 2013 alone,
we championed leg-
islation that afrms the rights of
transgender K-12 students in public
schools (Assembly Bill 1266) and
revokes tax-exempt privileges for
youth organizations that violate state
laws on discrimination (Senate Bill
323). As a caucus, we have communi-
cated our concerns over LGBT rights
to the Boy Scouts of America, as well
as the United States Olympic
Committee over discrimination of
gay athletes participating in the
upcoming Winter Games in Russia.
We maintain ongoing conversations
with state departments to ensure fair
and inclusive implementation of the
Insurance Gender Nondiscrimination
Act and the Affordable Care Act.
Our movement toward equality has
been and will continue to be a grass-
roots effort. We have worked with our
community partners to co-sponsor
Queer Youth Advocacy and
Transgender Advocacy Days. These
events provided youth and transgen-
der advocates a platform to embark on
the state Capitol and lobby elected
ofcials on matters of importance to
them. This year, more than 100 indi-
viduals shared their personal stories
in support of AB 1266, thus revealing
the growing voice and awareness of
LGBT issues.
Hard work and our shared belief in
equality underlie this historic year of
LGBT victories both big and small.
The next few years present both chal-
lenges and opportunities for our com-
munity to work alongside other leg-
islative caucuses toward addressing
social inequities that persist.
Adopting federal immigration reform
and passing the Employment Non-
Discrimination Act will be just some
of the next steps on our journey
towards comprehensive equality. The
momentous achievements of 2013
drive my optimism for future equality
measures and for California.

of a needle, why not? The flu shot doesnt appear to
carry yet the same
controversial argument
of other vaccines
regarding autism or
other domino-like
health effects. Plus the
younger generations
dont know how good
they have it living in a
world of vaccines for
HPV and chicken pox.
Never knowing the mis-
ery that is trying not to
pick at calamine lotion-
drenched bumps under
fear of permanent scar-
ring? That is worth the
price of admission right
But still, I have never had a flu shot. I think about it.
I tell myself I should. I read about what new strains
this years version will battle and what monster virus
from birds or pigs or camels or what have you is just
waiting to make the Black Plague look like an isolated
bout of norovirus. Then I promptly never make an
appointment or hit the nearest pharmacy.
Maybe its my annoyance at historically not having
health insurance cover the entire cost of the shot, par-
ticular for those of us whod prefer to pop into the
nearest CVS or Target store rather than squeeze in a
doctors visit (and associated copayment). Yes, some
plans do cover the shot, particularly for those in cer-
tain age ranges or lower economic brackets. And
maybe the Affordable Care Act now mandates that
insurance pick up the tab for the regular Jane and John
who just want to stave off the flu. Im hard-pressed to
find a simple answer so admittedly my frustration may
be dated.
Regardless, as a matter of principal, the point is the
shot should be free. Why should an insurance company
prefer taking care of a health situation after the fact
rather than nip it in the bud? This isnt the birth con-
trol mandate.
At the beginning of flu season, none of that mattered
anyway. I wasnt going to get sick, I told myself while
conveniently forgetting about last years Sickness
Tour 2013. Besides, everybody who gets the shot says
they feel ill for a few days. Why would I possibly want
to speed up the inevitable?
That was all before the hacking started. And the
phlegm. And the sniffling, the painful swallowing, the
weeping eyes, the tingling ears, the slight flavor of
gross coating the throat and every edible item that
travels down it. Despite the dousing of hand sanitizer
repeatedly throughout the day and the feeble attempts
to avoid those who dont cough and sneeze like a vam-
pire, I fell victim.
At first, I blamed poor sleeping habits for the slight
under the weather feeling. Then I blamed the coworkers
recuperating from their own bouts of Martian death flu.
After the finger pointing stopped, the culprit became
clear the bag of dark chocolate covered acai blueber-
ries. The Trader Joes goodies are in fact delicious, so
delicious in fact that the majority of the editorial staff
dipped its hands into the bag time and time again.
Much like those bowls of bar nuts and dishes of
unwrapped candy that beckon like germy public stews
of filth and foul, the communal treat bag was undoubt-
edly Ground Zero for the sickness.
I should have just gotten the darn shot. Then again,
perhaps my ailment is just the common cold. If I could
tell the difference, I might know which one to starve
and which one to feed.
Just to be on the safe side, though, I might just cave
while theres still a window of opportunity. I wouldnt
want to look back one day while bedridden and know
the opportunity just flew by.

NEWYORK The Standard & Poors
500 index notched its worst start to a
year in almost a decade Monday, closing
lower for the third straight trading day.
Although the declines for stocks in
the New Year have been modest, the
direction has been consistently down.
The Standard & Poors 500 index has
fallen 1.2 percent from its most recent
record close on Dec. 31.
The performance is a contrast to last
year, when the S&P 500 surged almost
30 percent, its best annual gain since
1997. The banner year ended with the
stock market climbing to record levels
amid signs that the economy was
The market is basically looking for
additional conrmation of economic
strength and maybe marking time as it
catches its breath from a pretty strong
run at year-end, said Jim Russell, a
regional investment director at US
The Standard & Poors 500 fell 4.60
points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,826.77. The
Dow Jones industrial average dropped
44.89, or 0.3 percent, to 16,425.10.
The Nasdaq composite fell 18.23, or 0.4
percent, to 4,113.68.
The weak start to the year is not a
good omen for stock investors. The last
time the S&P 500 dropped on the open-
ing three trading days of the year in
2005, the index climbed just 3 percent
for the whole year.
Despite the slow start, many analysts
say its too early to call a change in the
markets upward trend.
Reports on the economy Monday
contained some hopeful signs.
U.S. service companies grew at a
steady but slightly slower pace in
December. Sales dipped and new orders
dropped to a four-year low, according to
a report from the Institute for Supply
Management. The report suggests that
growth may remain modest in the com-
ing months.
Factory orders climbed 1.8 percent in
November, led by a surge in aircraft
demand, the Commerce Department
The most closely watched economic
report of the week will come on Friday
when the Labor Department is scheduled
to release its jobs survey for December.
Thats going to inuence the Feds deci-
sions on how fast to reduce its bond pur-
chases in the coming months.
Company earnings reports also start
coming out this week, providing anoth-
er catalyst that may lift the market.
Alcoa, a former Dow stock, will be one
of the rst major companies to report its
fourth quarter earnings after the close of
trading on Thursday.
This downturn is persisting a little
bit more than I would expect, said Jack
Ablin, chief investment ofcer at BMO
Private Bank. Between the jobs report
Friday and earnings results next week,
we will have a much better idea of the
drivers of the market.
Among the winners on Monday were
mens clothing retailers Mens
Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank. Both
stocks rose after Mens Wearhouse
announced a $1.61 billion hostile bid
early Monday for its smaller rival.
The offer came four months after Jos.
A. Bank had made its own takeover bid
for Mens Wearhouse. That offer was
rejected and Mens Wearhouse bid for
Jos. A. Bank instead. After failing to
reach a deal, Mens Wearhouse is now
going directly to its rivals sharehold-

WASHINGTON The Senate con-
rmed Janet Yellen on Monday as the
rst woman to lead the Federal Reserve,
elevating an advocate of ghting unem-
ployment and a backer of the central
banks efforts to spur the economy with
low interest rates and massive bond pur-
Yellen, 67, will replace Ben
Bernanke, who is stepping down after
serving as chairman for eight years
dominated by the Great Recession and
the Feds efforts to combat it.
Senators conrmed her by 56-26,
with numerous absences caused by air-
line ight delays forced by arctic tem-
peratures around much of the country.
All 45 voting Democrats were joined by
11 Republicans in supporting Yellen,
while 26 Republicans voted no.
Vice chair of the Fed since 2010,
Yellen begins her four-year term as
leader of the century-old bank on Feb.
1. With the economy rebounding from
the depths of the recession but only
modestly so far, many economists
expect her to focus on how to nurture
growth without putting it into over-
drive, which could risk fueling ina-
The big debate will be when the Fed
should tighten and how much, rather
than when to step on the gas pedal and
how hard, predicted Bill Cheney, chief
economist for John Hancock Financial
Services, who envisions a growing
economy this year.
Under Bernanke, the Fed has driven
short-term interest rates down to near
zero and flushed money into the econ-
omy with huge bond purchases, which
it has just started to ease. Yellen, a
strong Bernanke ally, has supported
those policies and is expected to con-
tinue them until concrete signs
emerge of sustained improvement of
the economy and job market.
In a written statement, President
Barack Obama said Yellens approval
means the American people will have a
erce champion who will protect them.
I am condent that Janet will stand
up for American workers, protect con-
sumers, foster the stability of our nan-
cial system and help keep our economy
growing for years to come, Obama
Lobbyists for the banking and nan-
cial services sectors issued statements
pledging to work with Yellen. Both
industries have led a ght to water down
restrictions imposed by Obamas 2010
law overhauling how the nations nan-
cial system is regulated.
A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Yellen
previously headed the Federal Reserve
Bank of San Francisco, chaired
President Bill Clintons Council of
Economic Advisers and has been an eco-
nomics professor at the University of
California at Berkeley.
Yellen, who as an academic has
focused on unemployment and its caus-
es, is considered a dove who wants the
Fed more focused on creating jobs
because unemployment is high and
ination is low.

WASHINGTON U.S. service com-
panies expanded at a steady but
slightly slower pace in December as
sales dipped and new orders plunged
to a four-year low. The report suggests
economic growth may remain modest
in the coming months.
The Institute for Supply
Management said Monday that its
service-sector index fell to 53 last
month, down from 53.9 in November.
Any reading above 50 indicates
Ameasure of new orders plummeted
7 points to 49.4, the first time it has
dropped below 50 since July 2009. A
gauge of business stockpiles also fell
But a gauge of hiring increased 3.3
points to 55.8, evidence that services
firms are adding more jobs.
Thats a good sign for Decembers
jobs report, which will be released
The survey covers businesses that
employ 90 percent of the workforce,
including retail, construction,
health care and financial services
Anthony Nieves, chairman of the
ISMs services survey, said the
declines in orders and business stock-
piles likely occurred after a little bit
of excess had built up in anticipation
of the winter holidays. He expects the
orders index to recover in the coming
The rise in hiring suggests compa-
nies are still confident enough in the
pipeline to add jobs, he added.
The drop in new orders would point
to slower growth, if it continued,
economists said. But most expect the
decline will be temporary.
This will likely prove to be tran-
sient, rather than the start of a new
trend, said Thomas Feltmate, an
economist at TD Bank. As ... con-
sumer confidence continues to
improve, we expect to see an acceler-
ation in consumer spending in 2014,
which should prove supportive of
future supplier orders.
Other economists noted that severe
weather last month could have ham-
pered business for many firms. One
company in the arts, entertainment
and recreation industry told the ISM
that both customers and employees
were unable to reach the workplace
because of bad weather.
Service companies have grown at a
modest pace this year. It has averaged
54.7 over the past 12 months.
The survey typically tracks growth
in consumer spending, which drives
70 percent of economic growth.
Spending by consumers was
restrained for most of last year. But
Americans have opened their wallets a
bit more in recent months. That could
push the index higher in 2014.
U.S. services index slips on sharp fall in orders
Mens Wearhouse boosts bid for Jos. A. Bank
FREMONT Despite rebuked overtures on both sides, The
Mens Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank could wind up together for
better or worse.
The courtship to combine the two mens clothing compa-
nies has dragged on for months, with each chain having their
offer to acquire the other rebuffed. And the saga to combine the
two rivals took another turn on Monday when Mens
Wearhouse boosted its offer to acquire Jos. A. Bank to $1.61
While the companies continue to play hard to get, analysts
say a combination is inevitable. It would enable both chains
to cut costs and boost prots in an increasingly competitive
market in which shoppers are scrutinizing their purchases
more. But so far executives have been unable to hammer out a
deal despite interest on both sides.
Anybody who follows corporate America can see that these
two companies have to be joined, said Belus Capital
Advisors analyst Brian Sozzi. They are specialty retailers in
a price-competitive industry with limited growth prospects.
The Mens Wearhouse Inc. is now offering $57.50 per share
for Jos. A. Bank, up from its prior offer of $55 per share, or
$1.54 billion. Jos. A. Bank rejected the previous offer in late
December, saying it was too low. Mens Wearhouse said it is
taking the bid directly to Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. share-

PASADENA Jameis Winston threw a 2-
yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin
with 13 seconds left and No. 1 Florida State
beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 to win the last BCS
national championship game on Monday
Winston struggled much of the night but
was near perfect when the Seminoles (14-0)
needed it most, going 6 for 7 for 77 yards on
the game-winning 80-yard drive. A pass
interference penalty on Auburns Chris
Davis gave Florida State a rst-and-goal at
the 2 and on the next play Winston hit his
big receiver for the touchdown.
I said this from Day 1 in spring ball.
These kids are special, coach Jimbo Fisher
said. This group never faltered. They want-
ed to be elite. They wanted to go to the top
and theres so much character in this group.
Tre Mason had given Auburn (12-2) a 31-
27 lead with a 37-yard touchdown run with
1:19 left after Kermit Whitfield had put
Florida State in the lead for the rst time
since the rst quarter with a 100-yard kick-
off return to make it 27-24 with 4:31 left.
Mason ran for 195 yards.
Winston was 20 for 35 for 237 yards and
two fourth-quarter touchdown passes.
Nick Marshall ran for a touchdown and
threw scoring passes to Mason and Melvin
Ray in the rst half, and Auburn led 21-13
after three quarters.
All-America kicker Roberto Aguayos
second eld goal of the night accounted for
the only third-quarter points for either team
as both defenses took charge after a frenetic
rst half.

The battle for West Bay Athletic League
supremacy has come down to two teams the
last couple of years: Menlo School and
Sacred Heart Prep.
And when it comes to boys basketball,
theres a chance that 2013-14 will bring
WBALfans much of the same those teams
are still very talented.
Or, it could be a completely different
story. Last season, the Gators and Knights
combined for a 25-3 mark in league play
before heading into the Central Coast
Section playoffs and making some serious
This season, the two have already com-
bined for 13 losses (after 17 all of last year).
Needless to say, the two most successful
programs in the WBAL have taken their
lumps so far. But is it a sign of things to
come or are they teams looking to nd their
groove right before the start of the regular
MENLO (1-9)
Yes, the win-loss record isnt the most
attractive thing in the world.
In fact, its downright ugly.
But the rst thing to know about the
Menlo Knights this season is that theyre
barely getting to know each other in a
basketball sense. Only five players on
Menlos roster have played all 10 of the
games so far. For chemistry and consisten-
cys sake, the Knights simply have not had
enough time to gel during the non-league
portion of their schedule. That would
explain the nine losses, more than half of
which have come by double digits. Menlos
lone win was against Gunderson. Still,
theyre a team with pride after capturing the
CCS Division IV championship last sea-
So, the Knights denitely have the pieces
to contend. Chief among those is Bobby
Roth, a guard who is picking up right where
he left off last season when he burst onto
the scene. Hes played in all 10 games and is
averaging just a shade under 14 points per
game while shooting an effective 40 per-
cent from the oor and 31 percent from
beyond the arc.
Also is double digits is Liam Dunn, whos
played in eight games this season. Hes
been big on the boards for Menlo (four per
game) and is pouring in 10.5 points per
contest. Senior Wes Miller is also in double
digits scoring with 10.6 and hes big on the
glass as well leading the team at 5.6
rebounds per game.
For Menlo to repeat as champions (they
went 13-1 in league last year), theyll need
to gel quick and get even more rebound sup-
port from Ryan Young (7.3 points per game
and 4 rebounds per) and Alex Grossman (4.7
rebounds per game).
The Knights begin league play against
Crystal Springs Uplands Tuesday night.
As the record suggests, its been an up-
and-down season so far for the Gators.
Ayear after nishing second in the WBAL
(and bowing out in the rst round of the CCS
playoffs), theyre started the year with a
couple of eye-opening losses and just
about the same amount of eye-opening
wins. They lost three straight to begin the
season, but have since won three of their
last four contests.
For one, the Gators are young with
only four seniors on the roster. And two,
SHP is still getting a lot of key pieces to
their team back from the state runner-up
football squad that played in Carson just a
couple of weeks ago. So they, like Menlo,
is working on the whole on-court chem-
istry thing on the y.
They have a couple of great juniors in
Corbin Koch and James McLean to lead the
charge. Koch is one of the most exciting
scorers in the entire county. Hes leading
the team in points per game with 19 and
rebounds with 10. Hes also dishing out 2.3
assists per game. So, as Koch goes, so will
the Gators.
McLean has emerged as a nice comple-
ment to Koch. Hes putting up an 11-point,
7-rebound line thus far this season.
But the Gators will need young players
like Connor Moses to emerge like Koch did
last season to contend. Moses is adding a
tad under nine points a game this season
while shooting 45 percent from beyond the
arc. Defensively, the Gators are pressing a
fair amount and its showing success
(almost 13 steals per game).
The Gryphon rebuilding process looks
like its coming together nicely this sea-
Ayear after going 7-19 overall and 1-13
in the WBAL, CSUS is two wins from their
overall total of last year. Do they have the
pieces in place to make 2013-14 a winning
It appears theyll have to have great
shooting nights for that to happen. The
Gryphons wont out-muscle you off the
glass, but they do have a couple of guys who
can score the basketball. Emmit Hiemstra is
going to lead CSUS. Hes averaging 13
points per game and 4.2 rebounds per con-
test. Hell need the help of players like Viraj
Singh, whos next on the team with almost
8 points per game.
The Gryphons also have a couple of guys
who will have to come up big. Kent Kober
and AJ Qiu jump to mind.
SERRA (7-3)
Its the oldest cliche in the prep book, but
its true the West Catholic Athletic
League will be a grind. In non-league play,
seven of the eight WCALteams have at least
seven wins. The only other one, Valley
Christian, is still 5-5. So, if youre a Serra
Padre, expect competitive basketball night-
in and night-out.
The Padres are 7-3 thus far and nd them-
selves needing to plug a lot of holes since
they graduated a core of players from last
seasons team that was demonized for four
seasons by Aaron Gordon and Archbishop
So far, the returns show that Danny
Mahoney and Sean Watkins will take up the
bulk of the scoring. The two are in double
gures for the season.
But Chuck Rapp teams are known for their
defense especially near the glass and
thats where Serra will have to play out of
its mind. As Rapp said earlier after a loss,
the team will live and die by the 3-pointer
and if you arent rebounding in the WCAL,
youre asking for trouble. The Padres will
need big seasons from Trevor Brown and
Jimmy Wohrer.
Changing of the guard time in the WBAL?
PHILADELPHIA Lawyers representing
former NFL players in the proposed $765
million settlement of thousands of concus-
sion-related claims detailed Monday how the
money would be divided.
The awards could reach $5 million for ath-
letes with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or
Lou Gehrigs disease; $4 million for a death
involving brain trauma; and $3 million for
dementia cases.
Under the payout formula, those maximum
awards would go to players under 45, who
would likely need more lifetime care. For a
man in his early 60s, the awards top out at $3
million for ALS and $950,000 for
Alzheimers disease. An 80-year-old with
early dementia would get $25,000.
Individual awards would also reect how
long the player spent in the NFL, unrelated
medical issues and other factors. For
instance, the award could be reduced signi-
cantly if someone had injuries from an unre-
lated stroke or car accident. Men without any
neurological problems would get baseline
testing, and could seek compensation if test
reveal any problems.
This is an extraordinary settlement for
retired NFLplayers and their families from
those who suffer with severe neurocognitive
illnesses today, to those who are currently
healthy but fear they may develop symptoms
decades into the future, lead players lawyers

CHARLOTTE Panthers coach Ron Rivera is expecting
a few more big plays from San Francisco 49ers quarterback
Colin Kaepernick this time around.
Rivera said Monday that Kaepernick didnt play that
well in the rst meeting against Carolina on Nov. 10. The
Panthers limited the third-year quarterback to 91 yards
passing, 16 yards rushing and no touch-
downs in a 10-9 win over the 49ers at
Candlestick Park.
On Sunday, the two teams meet again
in the NFC divisional playoffs in
Charlotte, N.C., and Rivera said he
expects Kaepernick will be on his game
and make it that much tougher on his
I dont expect that again, Rivera
said. I expect the young man to come
out and play well. Hes a good football
player and he showed it (Sunday) night against Green Bay.
The 49ers have won six straight games, including a 23-
20 playoff win over the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday
at Lambeau Field. Kaepernick threw for 223 yards and a
touchdown and ran for 98 yards against the Packers.
Over the past six games, Kaepernick has elevated his
play, averaging 231 yards passing per game with 11 touch-
downs and three interceptions.
Rivera says the 49ers are a much better team than they
played back in November.
All you have to do is watch the way he has played down
the stretch, Rivera said. We caught them at a good time
and it turned out in our benet.
Kaepernick was without wide receiver Michael Crabtree
in the last meeting and tight end Vernon Davis left early in
the game with a concussion. Crabtree had eight catches for
125 yards in the win over Green Bay.
Mario Manningham led the 49ers with 30 yards receiv-
ing in the last game against Carolina and San Franciscos
longest pass play went for 14 yards. The 49ers managed
just 10 rst downs against Carolina and failed to get into
the end zone.
We owe them, Kaepernick said Sunday of the Panthers.
San Franciscos win over Green Bay served as a stark
reminder of what not to do while defending Kaepernick.
Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott pointed to a cru-
cial moment on the nal drive when the outside edge rusher
lost containment and Kaepernick scooted free for an 11-
yard gain on third-and-8. Five plays later Phil Dawson
kicked the winning eld goal as time expired.
Rivera: Kaepernick tougher
to defend this time around

Carolina once more, and another
cross-country playoff ight.
The San Francisco 49ers are all for a
rematch with the Panthers, even if it
means hitting the road again this week
to keep their latest postseason run
Onward now, coach Jim Harbaugh
The Panthers shut down San
Francisco and quarterback Colin
Kaepernick 10-9 at Candlestick Park
on Nov. 10, snapping the Niners ve-
game winning streak. The 49ers lost
the following week at New Orleans for
their second two-game skid of the sea-
son, but have been on an impressive
unbeaten roll in seven games since
then after a 23-20 wild-card win
Sunday at bitterly cold Green Bay.
Now, the 49ers (13-4) get a second
chance at Cam Newton and Co. in the
NFC divisional playoffs Sunday. Now,
they have a healthy, playmaking
Michael Crabtree in the receiving
And true to his normal, succinct
nature, Kaepernick offered this on
Carolina: We owe em.
Added rookie linebacker Nick
Moody on Twitter: Rematch against
Carolina next week.
Kaepernick went 11 for 22 for 91
yards with an interception and was
sacked six times for a 42.0 passer rat-
ing in a rare poor performance.
Both Kaepernick and Panthers quar-
terback Newton drafted No. 1 over-
all in 2011 while Kaepernick was the
sixth QB selected will be eager to
have much better games on the post-
season stage.
Newton went 16 of 32 for 169 yards,
an interception and four sacks for a
52.7 rating.
The Niners needed every ounce out
of Kaepernick to get past Green Bay
for the fourth straight time and second
playoff victory in as many Januarys.
Weve got a good bad-weather quar-
terback. I think weve established
that, Harbaugh said Monday. Being
able to throw a ball that pierces
through the elements, the wind. Hes
shown that in the rain, bad weather,
footing, or elements of precipitation.
He can pierce a defense with velocity
and tightness of the spiral.
Not to mention with his long legs.
Kaepernicks 11-yard run on third-
and-8 set up Phil Dawsons winning
33-yard eld goal as time expired at
Lambeau Field.
No sleeves necessary for the tat-
tooed quarterback playing in subzero
temperatures, a Wisconsin native to
the bone.
And that No. 5 seed for the NFC West
runner-ups? No matter.
Kaepernick connected with a couple
of his favorite playoff targets Sunday,
completing eight passes for 125 yards
to Crabtree and a 28-yard touchdown
pass to tight end Vernon Davis in the
fourth quarter against the Packers.
Dawson deserved his share of the
credit, too. On a day when no kick was
a gimme, he came through with three
eld goals and the game-winner.
Biggest kick ever?
It is right now, Dawson said. Ive
waited a long time to win a playoff
Harbaugh said he shared a special
moment afterward with the kicker,
looking at the joy in Dawsons eyes
You could tell hes just happier
maybe than hell ever be and hell
remember that for many years to
Harbaugh, who brought in wrestler
Ric Flair for an animated pep talk,
became the rst coach since 1970 to
win 13 or more games, including the
postseason, in each of his rst three
By the end of a fun ight home, he
had turned his focus to the Panthers.
In the last game against Carolina,
the 49ers lost a pair of key players on
either side of the ball to concussions
tight end Vernon Davis and rookie
safety Eric Reid.
And Kaepernick has come a long
way since that loss two months ago
that followed the bye week.
Hes a tough guy, and a quarterback
like that, youll do whatever for him,
running back Frank Gore said.
Having Crabtree back in the mix
sure helps. The teams top wideout
from 2012 returned for the nal ve
games of the regular season after
recovering from a torn right Achilles
tendon that required surgery in May.
More dangerous, Harbaugh said.
Michael Crabtree was not there for
that game and Vernon was out of the
game early with a concussion.

Panthers after 10-9 loss
Colin Kaepernick will look to avenge an earlier loss to the Carolina Panthers.

As their record would suggest, the
Cougars have had an up-and-down presea-
son, with some bad losses followed by
wins. They are 0-2 against the PAL South,
however, getting blown out by Hillsdale
and Carlmont, which is never a good sign.
It could take a while for the Cougars to

Two sophomores and four juniors round out

It looks like its going to be a long year

they havent even really been competitive
in their games. They have lost ve games
by an average of 31 points.
With ve losses this year, the Indians
have extended their losing streak to 30
games. They havent won since a 56-47 vic-
tory over Carlmont in 2012.
Oceana (5-5)
The Sharks started the 2012-13 season in
similar fashion against a similar schedule.
That added up to a 10-14 overall record, but
just a 3-9 mark in North Division play.
Theyll need to do some work to avoid a
similar record in 2013-14. They were blast-
ed in a pair of games against PAL South
teams during the preseason, and went 3-2
against San Francisco teams not neces-
sarily the strongest squads.
The good news is, the Sharks return six
players from last years squad, including
senior captain Anjanette Lacar, who missed
most of last season with an injury. Jessica
Pineda is the teams leading returning scor-
er, who averaged just under 10 points per
game last year in limited action. The Sharks
also have inux of young talent, including a
pair of freshmen and a sophomore.

includes senior captain and point guard, 5-8
Keanna Toga. Junior Sharon Tukuaaga, a 6-
1 post player, gives the Warriors some
much-needed size in the middle.
Terra Nova (2-9)
The Tigers have taken their lumps during a
rugged preseason schedule, suffering a num-
ber of one-sided losses. Their problems are
on both ends of the court. Offensively, Terra
Nova is averaging 40 points per game, with
just two games where the Tigers scored 50
points or more. Defensively, they are allow-
ing an average of 58 points per game,
including three contests where they allowed
70 points or more.
Arianna Sheehy, a junior guard, is averag-
ing just over 13 points per game. She is the
only player, however, scoring in double g-
ures. Freshman Tia Peacock appears poised
to provide help this season, averaging six
points per game. While no other Tiger is
averaging ve points or more, they are get-
ting plenty of experience as every player
has appeared in at least nine of their 11
games and everyone has a scoring average.
If Terra Nova can gure out a way to harness
that kind of depth, the Tigers could make a
run at a title.

and a division title.

mula that measures county health care
costs and revenue for a fluctuating
result. The board is required to make a
nal choice by Jan. 22.
All counties with public hospitals
reached the same conclusion jointly
with the state and a consultant after an
extensive nancial analysis.
In the worst case, the difference is a
couple million dollars. Bluntly, even
without doing the nancial modeling,
the second option is best just from a
risk analysis, Fraser said.
The rst alternative would require the
Health System to return 60 percent of
the realignment funds plus 60 percent
of its indigent medical care contribu-
tion to the state even in years when it
runs a decit. Under this formula, the
system loses roughly $15 million
The preferred option takes away 80
percent of savings up to a maximum
yearly amount of $17.6 million. The
savings total includes the project
decreases in federal funds like dispro-
portionate share hospital funds but
could still exceed the Option One pay-
out in years with a large surplus.
The advantage of Option Two is it
goes with however [the Affordable
Care Act] does shake out, Fraser said,
explaining that if the county hospital
receives a lot of revenue the state can
take the money but that if revenue and
costs get out of whack the county isnt
left with substantially greater losses.
Fraser said the Health System antici-
pates the potential loss to increase
slightly to $16 million for scal year
2014-15 but drop in future years
because of reductions in federal fund-
ing. Less federal funding means less
revenue to the hospital which in turn
means less money for the state to take.

TEHRAN, Iran In Iran, free condoms
and government-backed vasectomies are
out, replaced by sermons praising larger
families and discussions of even offering
gold coins to the families of newborns.
Having successfully curbed birth rates for
two decades, Iran now is promoting a baby
boom to help make up for its graying popu-
lation. But experts say it is difcult to
encourage Iranians to have more children in
a mismanaged economy hit by Western
sanctions and 36 percent ination.
Agold coin wont change couples calcu-
lations, said Mohammad Jalal Abbasi, head
of Demographics Department at Tehran
University. Many young Iranians prefer to
continue their studies, not marry. Lack of
nancial ability to buy a house and meet
expenses are among other reasons why the
youth postpone marriage or have no interest
in raising many children.
Irans birthrate reached a peak of 3.6 chil-
dren per couple after its 1979 Islamic
Revolution, among the worlds highest at
the time. By 1990, experts estimated Iran
could be home to 140 million people if the
rate was left unchecked. To combat the rise,
Irans supreme leader Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei endorsed birth control, while
then-President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani
made controlling the birth rate a part of his
development plans.
Mass-produced condoms reached Iranians,
as a months supply of birth control cost the
equivalent of 10 cents in 1992. The birth
rate dropped precipitously, now reportedly
standing at 1.8 children per couple with a
population of some 77 million people.
Experts now say that drive might have been
too successful, estimating that Irans popu-
lation growth could reach zero in the next 20
years if the trend is not reversed.
Fearing that population decline, the
machinery of state in Iran has changed
course entirely. Khamenei, who has nal say
over all matters of state, now says Iran
should have a population of 150 million
people or more.
If we move forward like this, we will be a
country of elderly people in a not-too-dis-
tant future. Why do some couples prefer to
have one or two children? Why do couples
avoid having children? The reasons need to
be studied, the ayatollah recently said.
There was an imitation of Western life and
we inherited this.
Sermons now urge worshippers to raise
more children for Irans future. Mahdi
Sedqazar, who performed vasectomies at his
government-sponsored Martyr Jafari clinic
in central Tehran for a decade, now focuses
on preventing AIDS and promoting factory
workers health.
Vasectomy operations have totally
stopped. They were eliminated eight months
ago, Sedqazar said. The budget on popula-
tion curbs has been halted.
Some blame a drop in marriages and a rise
in divorce for the falling birth rate. Others
point to Irans economy, battered by
Western sanctions over its contested nuclear
program. Ination stands at 36 percent,
President Hassan Rouhani recently said.
Unemployment ofcially stands at 12 per-
cent, though some private experts suggest
nearly one in three working-age Iranians is
out of work.
Unemployment, a lack of housing and
job insecurity are the top most important
reasons for decrease in fertility rate, Abbasi
As part of a plan to encourage Iranians to
have more children, the Iranian parliament
approved a bill that allows the government
to increase maternity leaves to nine months
from six months and to give fathers a two-
week leave. Irans constitutional watchdog,
the Guardian Council, made it a law in July.
Government ofcials also have discussed
offering gold coins to newborns.
But those incentives may not be enough.
Ali Akbar Mahzoon, head of government
statistics and demographic data, said family
culture has changed irrespective of nancial
ability and job security. The average age for
people to get married in Iran has gone from
the early 20s to the late 20s, Mahzoon said.
While some 23 million Iranians are eligible
to marry, 11 million of them havent done
so, he said.
Wealthy people or those who have a
secure job also have no interest in having
more than two children, Mahzoon said.
However, he said that more jobs and housing
will be effective tools in helping increase
birth rates.
Iran tries to reverse a slumping birth rate
Many young Iranians prefer to continue their
studies, not marry. Lack of nancial ability to buy a house
and meet expenses are among other reasons why the youth
postpone marriage or have no interest in raising many children.

ATLANTA Fifty years ago, ashtrays
seemed to be on every table and desk.
Athletes and even Fred Flintstone endorsed
cigarettes in TV commercials. Smoke hung
in the air in restaurants, ofces and airplane
cabins. More than 42 percent of U.S. adults
smoked, and there was a good chance your
doctor was among them.
The turning point came on Jan. 11, 1964.
It was on that Saturday morning that U.S.
Surgeon General Luther Terry released an
emphatic and authoritative report that said
smoking causes illness and death and the
government should do something about it.
In the decades that followed, warning
labels were put on cigarette packs, cigarette
commercials were banned, taxes were raised
and new restrictions were placed on where
people could light up.
It was the beginning, said Kenneth
Warner, a University of Michigan public
health professor who is a leading authority
on smoking and health.
It was not the end. While the U.S. smok-
ing rate has fallen by more than half to 18
percent, that still translates to more than 43
million smokers. Smoking is still far and
away the leading preventable
cause of death in the U.S. Some
experts predict large numbers
of Americans will puff away for
decades to come.
Nevertheless, the Terry
report has been called one of
the most important documents
in U.S. public health history,
and on its 50th anniversary, of-
cials are not only rolling out new
anti-smoking campaigns but
reecting on what the nation did
right that day.
The reports bottom-line mes-
sage was hardly revolutionary.
Since 1950, head-turning studies
that found higher rates of lung can-
cer in heavy smokers had been
appearing in medical jour-
nals. A widely read article
in Readers Digest in
1952, Cancer by the
C a r t o n ,
c o n -
tributed to
the largest
drop in ciga-
rette consumption since the Depression. In
1954, the American Cancer Society
announced that smokers had a higher
cancer risk.
But the tobacco industry fought
back. Manufacturers came out with
cigarettes with filters that they
claimed would trap toxins before they
settled into smokers lungs. And in
1954, they placed a full-page ad in
hundreds of newspapers in which
they argued that research linking
their products and cancer was incon-
It was a brilliant counter-offen-
sive that left physicians and the
public unsure how dangerous smok-
ing really was. Cigarette sales
In 1957 and 1959, Surgeon
General Leroy Burney issued state-
ments that heavy smoking causes
lung cancer. But they had little impact.
Amid pressure from health advo-
cates, President John F. Kennedys
surgeon general, Dr. Luther
Terry, announced in 1962
that he was convening an
expert panel to examine
all the evidence and issue a comprehensive,
debate-settling report. To ensure the panel
was unimpeachable, he let the tobacco
industry veto any proposed members it
regarded as biased.
Surveys indicated a third to a half of all
physicians smoked tobacco products at the
time, and the committee reected the cul-
ture: Half its 10 members were smokers,
who puffed away during committee meet-
ings. Terry himself was a cigarette smoker.
Dr. Eugene Guthrie, an assistant surgeon
general, helped persuade Terry to kick the
habit a few months before the press confer-
ence releasing the report.
I told him, You gotta quit that. I think
you can get away with a pipe if you dont
do it openly. He said, You gotta be kid-
ding! I said, No, Im not. It just wouldnt
do. If you smoke any cigarettes, you better
do it in a closet, Guthrie recalled in a
recent interview with The Associated Press.
The press conference was held on a
Saturday partly out of concern about its
effect on the stock market. About 200
reporters attended.
The committee said cigarette smoking

clearly did cause lung cancer and was
responsible for the nations escalating male
cancer death rate. It also said there was no
valid evidence lters were reducing the dan-
ger. The committee also said more vague-
ly that the government should address
the problem.
This was front-page news, and every
American knew it, said Robin Koval, pres-
ident of Legacy, an anti-smoking organiza-
Cigarette consumption dropped a whop-
ping 15 percent over the next three
months but then began to rebound. Health
officials realized it would take more than
one report.
In 1965, Congress required cigarette
packs to carry warning labels. Two years
later, the Federal Communications
Commission ordered TV and radio stations
to provide free air time for anti-smoking
public service announcements. Cigarette
commercials were banned in 1971.
Still, progress was slow. Warner recalled
teaching at the University of Michigan in
1972, when nearly half the faculty members
at the school of public health were smokers.
He was one of them.
I felt like a hypocrite and an idiot, he
said. But smoking was still the norm, and it
was difcult to quit, he said.
The 1970s also saw the birth of a move-
ment to protect nonsmokers from cigarette
fumes, with no-smoking sections on air-
planes, in restaurants and in other places.
Those eventually gave way to complete
smoking bans. Cigarette machines disap-
peared, cigarette taxes rose, and restrictions
on the sale of cigarettes to minors got
Tobacco companies also came under
increasing legal attack. In the biggest case
of them all, more than 40 states brought
lawsuits demanding compensation for the
costs of treating smoking-related illnesses.
Big Tobacco settled in 1998 by agreeing to
pay about $200 billion and curtail market-
ing of cigarettes to youths.
In 1998, while the settlement was being
completed, tobacco executives appeared
before Congress and publicly acknowledged
for the rst time that their products can
cause lung cancer and be addictive.
Experts agree that the Terry report clearly
triggered decades of changes that whittled
the smoking rate down. But it was based on
data that was already out there. Why, then,
did it make such a difference?
For one thing, the drumbeat about the
dangers of smoking was getting louder in
1964, experts said. But the way the commit-
tee was assembled and the carefully neutral
manner in which it reached its conclusion
were at least as important, said Dr. Tim
McAfee, director of the Ofce on Smoking
and Health at the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
At the same time, he and others said any
celebration of the anniversary must be tem-
pered by the size of the problem that still
Each year, an estimated 443,000 people
die prematurely from smoking or exposure
to secondhand smoke, and 8.6 million live
with a serious illness caused by smoking,
according to the CDC.
Donald Shopland nds that depressing.
Fifty years ago, he was a 19-year-old who
smoked two packs a day while working as a
clerk for the surgeon generals committee.
He quit cigarettes right after the 1964 report
came out, and went on to a long and distin-
guished public health career in which he
wrote or edited scores of books and reports
on smokings effects.
We should be much further along than we
are, the Georgia retiree lamented.

WASHINGTON Even as his health care
law divided the nation, President Barack
Obamas rst term produced historically low
growth in health costs, government experts
said in a new report Monday.
While the White House sees hard-won vin-
dication, its too early to say if the four-year
trend that continued through 2012 is a lasting
turnaround that Obama can claim as part of
his legacy.
For the second year in a row, the U.S. econ-
omy grew faster in 2012 than did national
health care spending, according to nonparti-
san economic experts at the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Thats an important statistic. In most
years, health care spending grows more rap-
idly than the economy, like bills that rise
faster than your paycheck. That cost pressure
steadily undermines employer insurance as
well as government programs like Medicare
and Medicaid. But the pattern slowed starting
in 2009, and then appears to have reversed
ever so slightly and tenuously.
Have we turned the corner in a sustainable
way? Thats still an open question, said
economist Robert Reischauer, who serves as
a public trustee overseeing Medicare and
Social Security nancing. But I am more
optimistic than I have ever been that funda-
mental changes are under way. For example,
even though baby boomers are joining
Medicare in record numbers, that programs
costs are basically stable when measured on a
per-patient basis, Reischauer noted.
Nonetheless, America still spends a whole
lot. Mondays report found that the nations
health care tab reached $2.8 trillion in 2012,
the latest year available. Health care account-
ed for 17.2 percent of the economy, down
from 17.3 percent in 2011.
Total spending averaged $8,915 for every
man, woman and child, well above the level
in other advanced economies. But more
spending doesnt equate to better health. By
many health measures, other countries are
Also, the per-capita dollar amount doesnt
tell the full story. In any given year, most of
the spending goes for the sickest patients, a
small fraction of the population.
The report said Obamas health care law had
only had a minimal impact on overall
spending. It contributed less than 0.1 percent
to rising costs from 2010-2012, the authors
said. That will change this year when the
laws big coverage expansion for the unin-
sured is expected to increase U.S. health
spending by about 6 percent.
Whether that starts a return to the old pat-
tern of faster growth remains to be seen. The
White House does not believe that will hap-
There will be a temporary, one-year
increase as those folks are brought into the
system, but there is very reason to believe
that the trend of slowing growth rates per
beneciary will continue into the future,
said Jason Furman, chairman of the presi-
dents Council of Economic Advisers.
Its increasingly clear as each year of data
comes out and the slowdown persists that
there is also something structural going on,
and the Affordable Care Act is contributing,
he added.
The report said its too early to discern
where things might be headed next. In the
past, health care spending has stabilized two
to three years after an economic recession,
only to resume its upward track as consumers
regain condence. More evidence is needed
before concluding that theres been a structur-
al break in the relationship between the
health sector and the overall economy, the
authors said in an article published in the
journal Health Affairs.
Below the topline gures, spending grew
faster in some areas and more slowly in oth-
ers, making it more difcult to piece the puz-
zle together.
Spending for hospital care and doctors
services grew more rapidly.
So did out-of-pocket spending by individ-
uals. That reects the trend of employers
increasing annual deductibles and copay-
ments to shift a greater share of medical
costs directly on to employees and their fam-
Spending on prescription drugs barely
increased, reecting an unusual circumstance
in which patent protection expired for major
drugs like Lipitor, Plavix and Singulair.
Generic drugs accounted for an ever-increas-
ing share of prescriptions.
Medicare spending grew more slowly,
reecting a one-time cut in payments to nurs-
ing homes and some of the spending reduc-
tions in Obamas health care law. Spending
per Medicare recipient grew by 0.7 percent in
2012, down from 2.5 percent in 2011.
Spending for private insurance also grew
more slowly, reecting the shift to high-
deductible plans that offer lower premiums.
Part of the good news for 2012 reected a
statistical revision that the Commerce
Department adopted last year, resulting in a
more robust estimate of Gross Domestic
Product. Without that change, health care
spending would have approached 18 percent
of the economy. The reports authors said that
they updated statistics going back to the
1960s to account for the new GDP methodol-

Mark Cobb, senior vice president of
Colliers Internationals Peninsula
ofce, said the overreaching trend for
the last year is vacancies are continuing
to decline. In the Colliers International
report, San Mateo Countys vacancy
rate decreased to 11.4 percent from 12.7
percent, this the lowest vacancy rate
since fourth quarter 2007 when it was
11.33 percent.
Clearly, its a sign of current job
growth or anticipated job growth, he
said. Its tough to say [if the trend will
continue]. There was such impressive
demand in the last year and its not unre-
alistic to see this activity continue
going forward.
Rents have somewhat stabilized and
continue to track up in desirable mar-
kets, he said. Class Aspaces, buildings
that represent the highest quality build-
ings in their market and are well-locat-
ed, are in high demand, Cobb added.
Gross absorption, the measure of all
leasing activity within the market, for
fourth quarter 2013 was 1,047,475
square feet, bringing the 2013 total to
3,453,167 square feet, according to
Businesses are moving into the area.
Opera Software signed an expansion
deal for an additional 17,702 square feet
of space at 1875 S. Grant St. in San
Mateo. Opera and its subsidiaries now
employ 200 employees in Silicon
Valley double from the same time
last year, according to Norwegian-
based Web browser company. This num-
ber is expected to reach 300 in 2014.
Silicon Valley has become one of
Operas most strategic locations to do
business with technology industry jug-
gernauts to help make the Internet open
to everyone and grow our talent base,
said Mahi de Silva, CEO, Opera
Mediaworks, in a statement. We real-
ize the importance and influence
Silicon Valley has on how we power the
global mobile ecosystem, including
how we help consumers to discover
content, advertisers to reach the audi-
ence they are looking for, publishers to
generate revenue and operators to pro-
vide a faster and better network experi-
ence. We will continue our expansion in
this region by hiring people in all areas
and continue to grow Opera Software.
The mid-Peninsula has seen increased
activity in the last couple of years
because of its place between Silicon
Valley and San Francisco, said Julia
Georgules, research manager for Jones
Lang LaSalle. Additionally, having
technology companies such as
Facebook in the area has been a huge
driver for those wanting to be near tal-
ent and new technology, she said.
In 2014, the whole region is still
going to be very strong, she said.
There was a question whether there
would be a burst of the tech bubble but,
at this point, its a very strong industry
and there doesnt appear to be any signs
of that faltering.
There are some areas along the
Peninsula that continue to have a harder
time leasing and selling ofce space.
For example, Brisbane and San Carlos
have more vacancies than other areas,
but are notorious for this, said Dave
Dove, associate vice president at
Cassidy Turley Commercial Real Estate
Services. Brisbane had a 52.1 percent
vacancy rate during fourth quarter 2013,
but Georgules said its slightly mislead-
ing this is a bad trend since there is a lot
less inventory in Brisbane.
Other trends along the Peninsula pro-
vided by Jones Lang LaSalle state ten-
ants are aggressively competing for all
sizable blocks of space in Palo Alto and
Mountain View and touring activity for
space larger than 30,000 square feet in
the mid-Peninsula has picked up.
Meanwhile, Edmodo, an edtech com-
pany, is relocating from downtown San
Mateo to expand into 48,370 square feet
at 1200 Park Place in the same area. The
law rm Weil Gotschal is in the market
for 70,000 square feet of Class Aspace
along State Route 92, according to the
Jones Lang LaSalle report. Additionally,
Google leased 94,400 square feet of
ofce space at 1000 Cherry Ave. in San
Bruno, according to the Colliers report.
CardioDX leased a 69,449-square-foot
space at 500-600 Saginaw Drive in
Redwood City. It is relocating out of
Palo Alto to a bigger ofce during the
rst half of 2014, according to the Jones
Lang LaSalle report.

Its a pretty big deal in my mind,
Yazdi said. A move of this magnitude
is pretty uncommon.
Ed Willig, co-president of Carr
McClellan, contends its a trend for
estate planning practices to split from
Yazdi and Anderson got serious about
opening a new rm about three or four
months ago. After being approached
about being acquired, they decided the
route they wanted to take was starting
an entirely new law rm.
It was a big decision for us, said
Anderson, who worked at Carr
McClellan for 25 years. We have
observed lots of changes in the mar-
ketplace for advising high level
clients and we decided at this point we
would like to start our own rm. ... We
want to heighten the level at which we
provide services.
The team of 29 attorneys, paralegals
and staff comprised essentially the
entire estate planning and administra-
tion practice and much of the trust and
estate litigation group at Carr
McClellan. Attorneys advise and advo-
cate on behalf of high net worth indi-
viduals and families in many areas of
wealth and asset management. The rm
also advises on the formation and
administration of public and private
foundations as well as charitable
Why stay in Burlingame?
We like living and working in the
same community, Anderson said. Our
clients are concentrated in the mid-
Peninsula. Its a bit of a sweet spot
between San Francisco and Silicon
Valley. ... We reinvented and created a
law rm in the past few months and it
was a ton of work, but were delighted
to open.
Since space is not at a premium at
the moment, they were lucky to get the
space they did, Yazdi said.
As part of the move, Albert Horn, a
member of Carr McClellan since 1952,
will join Anderson Yazdi.
Hes a mentor and going forward
wed like to perpetuate that part of the
legacy, Anderson said.
Horn said he is happy to be joining
the new rm.
I am deeply proud and excited to be
a part of this group of enterprising and
highly talented attorneys in forming
our new rm, Horn said in a press
release. Our focus and commitment
remains unwavering: to help clients
grow their wealth and pass it on to
future generations while minimizing
the impact of taxes.
The rm also includes controversy
practice, representing both plaintiffs
and defendants on trust, estate and du-
ciary litigation.
The formation of our new firm
comes at an optimal time, enabling us
to even more effectively meet our
clients needs, as well as seize new
opportunities in this very dynamic and
growing market for wealth-related
legal services, Anderson said in a
press release. We remain deeply com-
mitted to serving as their trusted advi-
sors, and adapting and evolving based
on the changing dynamics of high net
worth-related matters such as asset
protection, privacy and their increas-
ing cross-border needs.
Meanwhile, Lisa Stalteri, Carr
McClellan co-president, said she and
the rest of her rm are very happy for
the departing attorneys.
We have a very strong working
relationship with them and wish them
success, she said.

Case Number: 124037
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Ofelia Gonzalez. A Peti-
tion for Probate has been filed by Auturo
Gonzalez in the Superior Court of Cali-
fornia, County of San Mateo. The Peti-
tion for Probate requests that Auturo
Gonzalez be appointed as personal rep-
resentative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests the decedents will
and codicils, if any, be admitted to pro-
bate. The will and any codicils are avail-
able for examination in the file kept by
the court.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ster the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: February 3, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal qutho-
ity may affect your rights as a creditor.
You may want to consult with an attorney
knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.
