The wheelchair-bound former
Mid-Peninsula Water District
worker accused of stealing more
than $200,000 to fund a gambling
addiction pleaded no contest
Wednesday to embezzlement in
return for no more than ve years
in prison.
Catherine Marie Abou-
Remelehs alleged crimes went
unnoticed for three years until the
53-year-old Hayward woman left
the district on medical leave after a
2011 stroke.
Abou-Remeleh was originally
charged with theft of government
funds more than $200,000, identi-
ty theft and an allegation of com-
mitting aggravated white-collar
crime. She changed her plea
Wednesday to no contest on one
count of committing government
fraud and stealing more than
$200,000. Prosecutors made no
promises but the court capped her
potential term at ve years when
she is sentenced May 30. She will
also likely be ordered to pay resti-
tution and an aggravated white-
collar crime ne.
Deputy District Attorney Sean
Gallagher doesnt anticipate her
health challenges will play a role
in Abou-Remelehs ultimate pun-
The fact shes in a wheelchair
shouldnt mitigate her sentence,
he said. Bad luck on your health
doesnt mean you arent culpable.

Big waves on the way
Mavericks all
set for Friday
With a Pacic storm pushing big
waves toward California, organiz-
ers of a contest at one of the
worlds most perilous surfing
spots have told competitors to
grab their boards and get ready.
Jeff Clark, director of the
Mavericks event, set the contest
for Friday after forecasters predict-
ed that the mix of swell size and
weather would make for waves with
faces exceeding 40 feet.
Twenty-four of the worlds best
big wave surfers now have until
then to make their way to the break

Revenue is up for the city of
Burlingame and ofcials think it
would be wise to be careful about
how the extras funds are spent.
The citys annual audit revealed
the citys net position increased
$13.1 million, or 7.4 percent, dur-
ing the scal year ending June 30,
2013. The citys current total
budget is $64.6 million. The
largest positive budget variance
was reported for the transient
occupancy tax, or hotel tax, which
totaled $18.2 million, up $2 mil-
lion from the previous year.
Property and sales tax revenues
were up for a combined $1.4 mil-
lion as the economy continued
its measured recovery from the
2009 downturn, according to a
staff report.

Police like wanted
suspects Facebook post
FREELAND, Pa. Police in one
northeastern Pennsylvania town really
liked this Facebook post.
Ofcers in Freeland arrested 35-year-
old Anthony Lescowitch on Monday
night, less than two hours after he
shared a wanted photo of himself and
taunted police for not being able to nd
him, the (Wilkes-Barre) Times Leader
reported Tuesday.
Lescowitch shared the wanted bulletin
minutes after Freeland police posted it
on the department Facebook page
Monday night, authorities said. He was
being sought on assault-related
An ofcer pretending to be an attrac-
tive woman then messaged Lescowitch,
according to police. Lescowitch refused
the offer of a drink but eventually agreed
to meet for a cigarette, and was arrested
at the agreed-upon location.
After the arrest, police posted this
message: CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES
Lescowitch, of Drifton, remained in
the Luzerne County Jail Tuesday. Court
records dont list a defense attorney for
him, but show he faces a preliminary
hearing Jan. 29 on charges including
aggravated assault, reckless endanger-
ment and disorderly conduct stemming
from an incident July 14.
Soulja Boy arrested
on concealed weapon charge
LOS ANGELES Los Angeles police
say they have arrested rapper Soulja
Boy on suspicion of carrying a con-
cealed weapon when he and another man
were stopped for a
trafc violation.
Police spokesman
Richard French says
the 23-year-old rap-
per, whose real name
is DeAndre Cortez
Way, was a passen-
ger in the vehicle
when it was pulled
around 4 a.m. in the
Granada Hills neighborhood.
French said he did not have any infor-
mation on the type of rearm that of-
cers found.
Way was booked and released on
$35,000 and ordered to appear in court
on Feb. 20. His arrest was rst reported
by the celebrity website TMZ.
Jail records did not list an attorney for

Mans challenge to
no-fly list clears hurdle
ALEXANDRIA, Va. Afederal judge
on Wednesday allowed a Virginia mans
challenge to his placement on the no-
y list to go forward, three years after
he was stranded in Kuwait.
U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga
issued a 32-page written ruling reject-
ing arguments of government lawyers
who wanted the case dismissed. Trenga
said that Gulet Mohamed suffers signi-
cant harm from his apparent placement
on the list and the Constitution gives
him the right to challenge his no-y
Trenga acknowledged that
Mohameds travel rights must be bal-
anced against the governments duty to
protect its citizens from terrorism, but
wrote that the No Fly List implicates
some of our basic freedoms and liberties
as well as the question of whether we
will embrace those basic freedoms when
it is most difcult.
The government has refused to say
why it would have placed Mohamed on
the no-y list; in fact, the government
wont even conrm that Mohamed, or
anyone else, is on the list at all. The
government says only that people are
placed on the list when it has reason-
able suspicion to believe that a person
is a known or suspected terrorist.
Trenga wrote that a citizens right to
due process should provide a meaning-
ful opportunity to challenge the gov-
ernments rationale for placement on
the list.
Mohamed, an Alexandria resident and
naturalized U.S. citizen, was 19 when
he was detained by Kuwaiti authorities
in 2011. Mohamed says he was beaten
and interrogated at the behest of the
U.S. and denied the right to y home.

ASan Francisco Bay Area public transit
officer who was shot and killed by a fellow
officer while searching an apartment was
looking for a laptop and related items that
had been stolen, the transit agency police
chief said Wednesday.
However, Bay Area Rapid Transit Police
Chief Kenton Rainey declined to disclose
any further details about how Sgt. Tom
Smith was shot on Tuesday, deferring
those questions to the Alameda County
Sheriffs Office, which is investigating
the shooting.
Rainey said at a news conference that
there were seven BARTofficers and a sher-
iffs deputy at the scene when the shoot-
ing occurred. A robbery
suspect was in custody,
and the officers were
searching his apartment
in Dublin as part of an
investigation into the
theft of BART property.
Investigators were try-
ing to determine whether
an officers weapon dis-
charged accidentally, or
if Smith was mistaken for someone else,
Alameda County sheriffs Sgt. J.D. Nelson
said. Either way, it was an accident, he
Five of the seven BART officers were
detectives in plainclothes, including
Smith, according to Rainey, who said the
officers were following agency policies
and training. He declined to name the offi-
cer who shot Smith, but said he was
extremely upset.
We want to give him and his family a
chance to come to grips with whats going
on and whats happening, he said.
Smith, 42, of San Ramon had been with
the department for 23 years and was in
charge of the detective unit. He is survived
by his wife, also a BART officer, and 6-
year-old daughter.
Tommy was a great law enforcement
officer, but an even better son, brother,
husband, father and friend, Rainey said.
He touched many lives in a positive way
both professionally and personally and he
will be sorely missed.
Nelson said the officer who shot Smith
has been in law enforcement for more than
10 years. The officers knew the suspect
was in custody and not home at the time of
the shooting, Nelson said.
The suspects name has not been
The officers involved in the search wore
bulletproof vests and began the search by
knocking twice on the door, Nelson told
the Associated Press. The knocks went
unanswered, but the door was unlocked, so
several officers stepped inside with guns
drawn, he said.
What happened next remained unclear,
but Nelson said an officer fired one shot.
Smith was taken to Eden Medical Center
in Castro Valley, where he died.

Schools along the Peninsula are
getting a hand in adjusting to new
standards that integrate technolo-
gy into classrooms with UClass, a
new K-12 curriculum resource.
The San Mateo County Ofce of
Education, UClass agship group,
will pilot the For

talking with hundreds of school

How you can favor sh over
people is something people in my

stand, Boehner said.
Without the emergency legisla-
tion, thousands of farmworkers will
be unemployed, he said.
The bill is expected to be intro-
duced in two weeks. It calls for

Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta as
water permits and forms a House-

each lawmaker railed on Senate

Restoration of the San Joaquin
River has caused erce battles span-
ning years that have pitted farmers
in need of irrigation water against

salmon runs back to historic lev-
Salmon, and families (who)
depend on them, are the ones we
need to act to save now, John
McManus, executive director of
Golden Gate Salmon Association,
said in a statement. Salmon are
dying in the drought-stricken
Central Valley rivers and soon that
will translate into lost jobs on the
coast and inland waterways.
As the nations leading farming

worst dry spell in a century, unless
signicant rain falls within the
next two months. The parched
weather could also wreak havoc dur-
ing Californias notorious wildre
The San Joaquin River starts in
the Sierra Nevada east of Fresno and
collects at the Friant Dam into
Millerton Lake.
It ows a few miles after the dam
but dries up before reaching the
Pacic Ocean. The river resumes
downstream with water from the
Merced, Tuolumne and Stanislaus
rivers, which each have salmon
population. The rivers restoration
is estimated to cost $1 billion in
federal funds.
Among the difculties, some for-
mer river bottom has subsided from
pumping, and engineers will need
to nd ways to send the water uphill
along its previous route. Farmland
may end up ooding.
Farmer Larry Starrh, who opened
up his eld to the congressional
delegation, said the drought has
caused his family to make the dif-
cult decision to lay fallow 1,000
acres covered with producing
almond trees and leave another
2,000 across of land unused.
Water is a weapon, Starrh said
as his voice shook with emotion.
Water is a hostage. Our water sys-

ness, and we need help.

in recent years, as politicians issue exten-

Congress has typically extended unem-
ployment benets during times when unem-
ployment exceeds 7 percent, but efforts to
pass an extension have been blocked by
Republicans several times now since 2011,
Speier said.
Speier said the lack of action by Congress,
which caused 1.3 million Americans to lose
their benets on Dec. 28, 2013, and will
cause another 1.9 million to lose benets in
the rst six months of 2014, will cost the
economy 240,000 jobs this year.
Unemployment benets generate jobs by put-
ting money directly back into the economy,
Speier said.
Speier met with several job seekers
Wednesday in San Francisco who lost their
unemployment insurance in December.
Many of those who spoke with Speier said
they had been looking for work for a year or
more and had run through their savings in an
effort to stay aoat. The loss of unemploy-
ment benets meant they were struggling to
eat, to pay rent, and to support their children.
We are better than this as a country and
these people deserve our support, Speier

crimination in job inter-

NEW YORK The hackers behind the
recent Target data breach are likely a world
away and nearly impossible to nd.
Thats the consensus among outside
cybercrime experts as Target, the Secret
Service and the FBI continue their investi-
gation of the pre-Christmas data heist in
which hackers stole about 40 million debit
and credit card numbers and also took per-
sonal information including email
addresses, phone numbers, names and home
addresses for another 70 million people.
In the aftermath of the breach, millions of
Americans have been left to wonder what
has become of their precious personal infor-
mation. The information can be used in a
variety of nefarious ways. Criminals can
attempt to use the credit card numbers and
place charges on the original owners
accounts or they can use other pieces of per-
sonal information to steal peoples identi-
ties and apply for new lines of credit.
In cases where such a massive amount of
information is stolen, criminals generally
divide the data into chunks and sell the
parcels through online black markets, says
Chester Wisniewski, senior security adviser
for the computer security rm Sophos.
In many ways, those markets behave
much like any legitimate marketplace ruled
by the forces of supply and demand. Groups
of higher-end cards are worth signicantly
more than those with lower credit limits and
so are cards tied to additional personal infor-
mation, such as names, addresses and zip
codes, which make them easier to use.
After thieves purchase the numbers, they
can encode the data onto new, blank cards
with an inexpensive, easy-to-use gadget. Or
they can skip the card-writing process and
simply use the card numbers online.

KIEV, Ukraine Ukrainian opposi-
tion leaders issued a stark ultimatum to
President Viktor Yanukovych on
Wednesday to call early elections with-
in 24 hours or face more popular rage,
after at least two protesters were killed
in confrontations with police in a
grim escalation of a two-monthlong
political crisis.
The protesters deaths, the rst since
the largely peaceful protests started in
November, fueled fears that the daily
demonstrations aimed at bringing
down the government over its decision
to shun the European Union for closer
ties to Moscow and over human rights
violations could turn more violent.
With a central Kiev street ablaze and
covered with thick black smoke from
burning tires and
several thousand
protesters continu-
ing to clash with
riot police, opposi-
tion leaders urged
tens of thousands of
demonstrators in a
nearby square to
refrain from vio-
lence and remain in
the main protest
camp for the next 24 hours.
They demanded that Yanukovych dis-
miss the government, call early elec-
tions and scrap harsh anti-protest leg-
islation. It was last weeks passage of
the laws cracking down on protests
that set off the violent clashes.
You, Mr. President, have the oppor-
tunity to resolve this issue. Early elec-
tions will change the situation without
bloodshed and we will do everything
to achieve that, opposition leader
Vitali Klitschko told some 40,000

ing on the U.S. Embassy in Tel Avi v
and bomb other targets, in what ana-
lysts said was the rst time the global
terror networks leadership has been
directly involved in plotting an attack
inside Israel.
The Shin Bet intelligence agency
said it had arrested three Palestinians
who allegedly plotted bombings,
shootings, kidnappings and other
attacks. It said the Palestinian men,
two from Jerusalem and one from the
West Bank, were recruited by an opera-
tive based in the Gaza Strip who

ly planned by al-Qaida leaders.
The Shin Bet said the Palestinians
planned on attacking a Jerusalem con-
ference center with rearms and then
kill rescue workers with a truck bomb.
Al-Qaida also planned to send foreign
militants to attack the U.S. Embassy

Obama targets college sexual assault epidemic
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama shone a light
Wednesday on a college sexual assault epidemic that is often
shrouded in secrecy, with victims fearing
stigma, police poorly trained to investi-
gate and universities reluctant to disclose
the violence.
AWhite House report highlights a stun-
ning prevalence of rape on college cam-
puses, with 1 in 5 female students assault-
ed while only 1 in 8 student victims report
No one is more at risk of being raped or
sexually assaulted than women at our
nations colleges and universities, said
the report by the White House Council on Women and Girls.
Nearly 22 million American women and 1.6 million men
have been raped in their lifetimes, according to the report. It
chronicled the devastating effects, including depression, sub-
stance abuse and a wide range of physical ailments such as
chronic pain and diabetes.
The report said campus sexual assaults are fueled by drink-
ing and drug use that can incapacitate victims, often at stu-
dent parties at the hands of someone they know.
Perpetrators often are serial offenders. One study cited by
the report found that 7 percent of college men admitted to
attempting rape, and 63 percent of those men admitted to
multiple offenses, averaging six rapes each.
Obama, who has overseen a military that has grappled with
its own crisis of sexual assaults, spoke out against the crime
as an affront on our basic decency and humanity. He then
signed a memorandum creating a task force to respond to cam-
pus rapes.
New York City mayor:More
could have been done on snow
NEW YORK Northeasterners scraped and shoveled
Wednesday after a snowstorm grounded ights, shuttered
schools and buried roads with a surprising
amount of snow, leaving biting cold in its
wake. The atmosphere was particularly
frosty in New York, where the new mayor
acknowledged aws in the cleanup and
some residents complained that schools
remained open while children elsewhere
in the region stayed home.
The storm stretched from Kentucky to
New England but hit hardest along the
heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor
between Philadelphia and Boston. As much as 14 inches of
snow fell in Philadelphia, with New York City seeing almost
as much, and parts of Massachusetts were socked with as
many as 18 inches. Temperatures were in the single digits or
the teens in many places Wednesday.
In New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio, facing one of the rst
ashpoints of his weeks-old tenure, initially defended what
he called a coordinated, intense, citywide response to a
storm he said caused a worse-than-expected headache when it
ramped up at rush hour. And de Blasio, who campaigned on
closing gaps between rich and poor city residents, at rst
rebuffed complaints that the effort had lagged on Manhattans
posh Upper East Side, saying no one was treated different-

The woman known as Amy was in the courtroom, her
legal team said, for arguments in which the justices talked
frankly about the abuse she and other victims of child
pornography suffer from those who look at the pictures.
The woman has undergone serious psychiatric harm

speech. He highlighted some of the posi-
tive things weve achieved and yet acknowl-
edged that hard work remains, said
Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park.
Browns layout of $100 billion in debt
liabilities that includes pensions of teach-
ers, judges and other state employees, is a
responsibility that needs to be addressed as
the budget becomes solidified down the
road, said state Assemblyman Kevin
Mullin, D-South San Francisco.
Overall, the governor struck a very opti-
mistic tone as he well should he did also
strike on a cautionary note, which frankly I
applaud, mentioning some of our long-term
scal obligations and debt obligations that
we need to mention. The state teachers
retirement system has an $80 million
unfunded liability and we need to tackle that
issue sooner than later, Mullin said.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, agreed
with Brown that supporting biomedical and
life sciences companies to raise California
as national leader in this sector could help
with continued revenue. Hill also appreciat-
ed Browns forthcoming address and
acknowledgment of the challenges that lie
Im always impressed when the governor
presents a State of the State address that is
optimistic, realistic and pragmatic. What
hes expressed is ... were seeing the econo-
my improving. Were seeing school fund-
ing and health care coverage improving at
the same time our income is increasing. ...
But he highlighted the fact that we have
very substantial obligations and debt that
need to be dealt with and paid for; and thats
the reality part, Hill said.
For state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San
Francisco/San Mateo, the emphasis needs
to be on the reality that the economic down-
turn eviscerated social service programs,
health care funding, education and school
programs. Brown unveiled his touted bal-
anced budget last week with a surplus esti-
mated to be $3.2 billion by the end of the
scal year. Yee believes the stage has been
set for legislation that evaluates the surplus
that can lead to positive changes for the
future of the state.
So the question then becomes how are we
going to use the money, how much we ought
to put in reserve for a rainy day, how much
of it to we use to take care of some of the
cuts we made? So that is a major challenge
for this Legislature and the governor, Yee
Water policy
Solidifying substantive water policies
will be a priority as the state is immersed in
a drought of uncertain duration, Brown said.
Gordon and Mullin are on the Assembly
Water Working Group, which they said is
evaluating the possibility of placing a bond
on the state ballot some time this year to
fund ways to mitigate the droughts effects.
Such a bond has been rolled over from elec-
tion to election and has been narrowed down
to a much more modest $6.5 million price
tag, Mullin said.
The governor referenced whats on
everybodys mind, which is the drought.
Water policies are always a big issue here in
this building. I think youll have an invest-
ed discussion for [putting] the water bond
on the 2014 ballot, Mullin said. The tim-
ing is good for putting before the voters a
bond that devotes more dollars to recycling
water, conservation and ground water stor-
age. If theres ever a case that needs to be
made for ground water storage, now is the
The state needs voter support to invest in
water-related infrastructures needed to guide
us through the drought, Mullin said.
Local control
Brown reemphasized the principle of sub-
sidiarity, the idea that local governments
should only yield responsibility when a
more centralized government can do a better
job. Along those lines, he spoke of the role
of local government and the signicance of
reinstating city and county autonomy and
Since redevelopment agencies were dis-
banded, cities and counties found them-
selves grappling with ways to support their
own infrastructure repairs.
San Mateo County legislators applaud
Brown for wanting to provide local govern-
ments with tools to be more autonomous;
particularly as it relates to cities and coun-
ties funding their own infrastructure and
redevelopment needs.
The address did mention subsidiarity,
yet outlining a means to that goal was
lacking, Mullin said.
He alluded to scal autonomy and author-
ity of local government, but left out the key
phrase which is redevelopment, Mullin
said. He wasnt in my mind afrmative
enough when it comes to economic devel-
opment tools for local government. We see
that in San Mateo County and I was disap-
pointed to not hear more about that from the
Cities and counties have struggled with
financing opportunities and need the
Legislature to outline options, Hill said.
Were seeing the results of the collapse
of redevelopment and weve seen two things
that occurred. One is the loss of opportuni-
ties for affordable housing and second, we
lost the ability for local government to cre-
ate redevelopment opportunities and thats
been a problem, Hill said.
The state is considering changing the
threshold for redevelopment tax initiatives
from two-thirds to 55 percent and creating
infrastructure financing districts to help
oversee the expenditure of redevelopment
intended funding.
It would be able to expand the types of
projects the IFD can fund to include military
base reuses, urban inll projects, transit
priority projects, affordable housing and
associated necessary consumer service it
would also prohibit the diversion of taxes
from [K-12 schools and community col-
leges], Hill said.
Its important to provide redevelopment
tools, but it needs to be done correctly, Hill
said. Whether its asking citizens to sup-
port drought-related bond measures, provid-
ing nancing for rail projects or paying off
debt obligations, its going to take a collab-
orative effort, Hill said.
I think moving forward we need to be
careful about what we create, Hill said.

MONTREUX, Switzerland Furiously
divided from the start, representatives of
Syrian President Bashar Assad and the rebel-
lion against him threatened Wednesday to
collapse a peace conference intended to lead
them out of civil war.
Assads future in the country devastated by
three years of bloodshed was at the heart of
the sparring, which took place against a
pristine Alpine backdrop as Syrian forces
and rebel ghters clashed across a wide area
from Aleppo and Idlib in the north to Daraa
in the south.
U.S. and U.N. ofcials said merely getting
the two sides in the same room was some-
thing of a victory, but U.N. chief Ban Ki-
moons claim that the discussions were
harmonious and constructive was at odds
with the testy exchange when he tried to get
the podium from Syrian Foreign Minister
Walid Moallem.
You live in New York. I live in Syria,
Moallem angrily told Ban. I have the right
to give the Syrian ver-
sion here in this forum.
After three years of suffer-
ing, this is my right.
With little common
ground, the two sides
were to meet separately
Thursday with a U.N.
negotiator, Lakhdar
Brahimi, who said he
still did not know if they
were ready to sit at the same table when
talks begin in earnest Friday. But, Brahimi
said, both sides had shown some willing-
ness to bend on local cease-res and deliv-
ery of humanitarian aid, and Russian
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said they
were also working on possible terms for a
prisoner exchange.
The Western-backed opposition said
Assads departure was their starting point,
echoing the position laid out by U.S.
Secretary of State John Kerry.
The resolution cannot be about one
mans or one familys insistence on
clinging to power, Kerry said.
States weighing labels
on genetically altered food
PROVIDENCE, R.I. In the absence of
federal regulation, states from Rhode Island
to Hawaii are considering laws to require
labels on food items containing genetically
modied ingredients.
Currently, only Connecticut and Maine
have laws requiring labels for genetically
modied food. But those requirements wont
kick in until other states adopt their own
rules. Bills to do just that are expected in
more than two dozen states.
Seventy percent of processed foods con-
tain at least one ingredient made or derived
from genetically modied crops, known as
GMOs, according to the nonprot Center
for Science in the Public Interest. The indus-
try-backed Grocery Manufacturers
Association puts the number between 70
and 80 percent.
Genetic modifications to a plant can
improve its quality, hardiness or resistance
to pests or disease. Scientic studies have
found no evidence that GMOs are more
harmful than foods without genetic modi-
cations, but those pushing for label require-
ments point to the value in the information

but its something people have a right to

New rules sought
to make child car seats safer
WASHINGTON Child car seats would for
the rst time have to protect children from
death and injury in side-impact crashes under
regulations the government proposed
The proposal by the National Highway
Trafc Safety Administration would upgrade
standards for child seats for children weighing
up to 40 pounds to include a new test that sim-
ulates a side crash. The agency estimates the
standards will prevent the deaths of about ve
children and injuries to 64 others each year.
Car seats are an essential tool for keeping
young children safe in vehicles, and they
have a proven track record of saving lives,
NHTSAActing Administrator David Friedman
told a gathering of automotive engineers.
Under the proposal, the new tests will sim-
ulate a T-bone crash, where the front of a
vehicle traveling 30 mph strikes the side of a
small passenger vehicle traveling at 15 mph.
NHTSAs research has shown these speeds
will cover over 90 percent of the side-impact
crashes seen in the real world, Friedman said.
The tests will position the car seat on a
sled, with another sled ramming the side of
the sled with the seat, rather than using actu-
al vehicles since the aim isnt to test the
crash worthiness of specific vehicles,
NHTSAofcials said.

Letter to the editor

xpectations are understand-
ably low for an international
peace conference on Syria
that opened Wednesday in
Switzerland. It isnt just that the
meeting almost didnt happen because
of a dispute over whether representa-
tives of Iran would attend.
Theres also the fact that Russia,
which has spearheaded the so-called
Geneva II meeting with the United
States, may be paying only lip serv-
ice to the premise of the talks: that
they will produce a transitional gov-
erning body in Damascus, with
President Bashar Assad ceding at least
some power. And the rebels who are
grudgingly participating in the con-
ference dont speak for all of Assads
opponents. Finally, Assad may
believe that his hand has been
strengthened not only by battleeld
victories but by the legitimacy he has
gained by agreeing to surrender chem-
ical weapons.
No wonder a senior U.S. ofcial
cautioned that this is the beginning
of a process. It is not going to be
But even if the odds of success are
long, the Obama administration was
right to press for the convening of
Geneva II (which will actually take
place in the lakeside community of
Montreux). It is at least possible that
the conference will help to stop the
killing, speed humanitarian assis-
tance and lay the groundwork for a
political transition.
Although Russia blocked a resolu-
tion at the United Nations that would
have forced Assad to step aside, there
are signs that its patience with him
may be limited. The U.S. also
believes there are elements in the
Assad government that seek what a
State Department ofcial called a
way out from a civil war that has
killed more than 100,000 people,
uprooted more than 2 million and rav-
aged Syrias infrastructure. And
although the U.N. secretary-general
withdrew an invitation for Iran, an
Assad ally, to participate in the con-
ference, its not out of the question,
as Secretary of State John F. Kerry
has suggested, that Iran could play a
constructive role on the sidelines.
Some critics insist that instead of
concentrating on the diplomatic
track, the Obama administration
should have made good long ago on
the presidents repeated statements
that Assad has to go by providing
signicant military aid to rebel
forces. But its too glib to suggest
that it would have been easy for the
U.S. to earmark lethal assistance to
the right rebels.
Because of Assads brutal repression
of peaceful dissent, Syria was plunged
into a civil war that has become a
humanitarian nightmare. But there is
concern that a strategy of toppling
Assad at all costs could have unin-
tended consequences, including a
chaotic struggle for control of the
country and, potentially, the empow-
erment of groups sympathetic to Al-
Qaida. Though far from guaranteed to
succeed, the search for a political
solution remains the better alterna-
Finding a political solution for Syria
Game for family
oard games. When I think about family time
growing up, playing board games springs to
mind. Actually, games of all kinds. Maybe it
was the lack of smartphones, overextended extracurric-
ulars or video game consoles no more powerful than
the neighbor kids Atari down the street, but when my
family managed to eke
out some time together
it often boiled down to
Monopoly. Gin
rummy. Scrabble. This
is where I developed my
wheeling and dealing
skills and honed a com-
petitive streak. It is
also where I developed
some of my fondest rec-
ollections and took a
break from bickering
with my older brother.
Maybe it sounds boring
and old-fashioned and
quaint until I mention these hours were also a good
chance for my dad to impose his 60s and 70s rock
record collection on us kids and emulate Pete
Townshend on air guitar but it left a lasting impres-
si on.
Fast-forward decades and the idea of family time
seems to be a label slapped on any stretch longer than
a few minutes where more than one member comes up
for air from work, school, chores, hobbies you
name it. Not that the moments the ships passing in the
night put down anchor for a spell arent worthwhile but
sometimes it would be nice for an excuse to do some-
thing more. And since I guess a great number of folks
are like myself in need of some serious prodding
most of the time it would be helpful to have those
excuses already provided.
Maybe thats why the annual San Carlos Week of
the Family sounds like such a lovely roundup of activ-
ities whether one lives in the community or not. Heck,
even if one doesnt fit into the traditional image of the
family with two parents, 2.5 kids, the dog and the
picket fence, doesnt a large-scale roshambo contest
sound like fun? Everybody can play rock, paper, scis-
sors and frankly anybody can win regardless of age.
That said, bring it on children and senior citizens! If
only this had been an option in my childhood.
Grandma might have never let me win at Scrabble but I
think my rock might have crushed her scissors.
But looking at the list of activities planned for the
week (which starts Friday by the way), theres obvious-
ly more to family appreciation on the Peninsula than
claiming familial revenge against ones smarter elders.
Theres theater day and cooking demos and story time
and trampoline jumping. Star gazing, scavenger hunts,
science and acrobats. Forget Disneyland. San Carlos is
apparently the happiest place on earth for the next
week. And did I mention Sundae Sunday? Even the most
scattered of families should come together for ice
Kids, remember to circle Monday on the calendar.
Jan. 27 is citywide no-homework night. Man, where
was this when I was lugging textbooks and procrasti-
nating on reports? Suggestion from my inner long-ago
child: citywide no-homework week!
Another nod to my childhood next Friday marks
Family Game Night! I cant promise anybody there will
take the opportunity to channel The Doors or Frank
Zappa a la my late father but one can never go wrong
with a little family bonding over games. Or at least
one shouldnt go wrong frankly, it might be a tall
order to expect hugs and civility when a sibling is
demanding you pay up handsomely for Park Place.
But what one should do is at least try it out. The apps
and Xboxes and work will always be there even when
the chance to hang out with the family has passed.

tate government is expecting
a big increase in revenue this
year thanks to a strong
stock market and Gov. Jerry Brown
is proposing to use $11 billion to
pay down debt from past years of
Brown would also like to spend $10
billion more on education. The details
are all over the Internet.
Its a good budget, but not good
On Capital Public Radios Insight
program recently, Californians were
reminded that the big pension funds
are still in trouble. Those are
CalPERS, plus the teachers and
University of California systems
funds. The governors budget doesnt
do anything about that.
At his news conferences, Gov.
Brown has said he hasnt forgotten
the pension issue. Another search
turns up this overview of the pension
problem on a website called
California Budget Fact Check. It says
there that the funds are underfunded by
half a trillion dollars trillion with
a T!
The website also includes a recap of
a proposal the governor made two
years ago to x the problem:
Changing to a hybrid plan for
newly-hired public employees
401(k) plan, dened benet, and
Social Security.
Raising the retirement age for
newly-hired state employees to 67.
Putting an end to pension spiking
by changing the method by which
retirement benets are calculated for
new employees from the highest sin-
gle year salary to the highest three
Prohibiting pension holidays,
where employee or employer contri-
butions to pay for pension benet s
are suspended.
Ending the practice of allowing
state workers to purchase air time,
or additional service credit for time
they did not actually work.
Requiring new state employees to
work longer to qualify for retiree
health benet s.
The Legislature needs to get on
this. Its a scary issue for most politi-
cians, and its pretty boring for most
voters. But inattention will lead to
A good budget, however ...

Big movers

NEW YORK The Standard &
Poors 500 index eked out its second
small gain of the week Wednesday as
investors pored over the latest earn-
ings reports.
Norfolk Southern climbed after the
railroad company said its fourth-quar-
ter prot rose 24 percent, better than
Wall Street analysts had forecast. TE
Connectivity, an electronics compa-
ny, was the biggest gainer in the S&P
500 after its earnings beat analysts
expectations and the company posted
a strong earnings outlook for the sec-
ond quarter.
But there were also some high-pro-
le disappointments.
IBM fell after the computing compa-
ny reported lower-than-expected rev-
enue in the period. AMD slumped after
the chipmakers rst-quarter revenue
outlook rattled investors.
Companies are still increasing their
earnings and are forecast to log record
quarterly prots for the period, but
much of the improvement in recent
years has come from cutting costs. As
the economy strengthens, investors
are increasingly looking for evidence
that companies can increase revenue.
Theres not a lot of cost left for
companies to squeeze out, said Andy
Zimmerman, chief investment strate-
gist at DT Investment Partners, an
investment advisor.
The S&P 500 index rose 1.06 point,
or 0.1 percent, to 1,844.86. The index
traded within a range of just six points
on Wednesday. After a small gain on
Tuesday, the index is six points, or
0.3 percent, higher for the week.
The Dow Jones industrial average
fell 41.10 points, or 0.3 percent, to
16,373.34. Most of the Dows losses
came from IBMs slump. The computer
service companys stock fell $6.18,
or 3.3 percent, to $182.25.
In other trading, the Nasdaq com-
posite climbed 17.24 points, or 0.4
percent, to 4,243.
Among the days winners, TE
Connectivity jumped $3.70 or 6.6
percent, to $60 after its earnings
report. Norfolk Southern climbed
$4.23, or 4.8 percent, to $92.94 after
the rail company said its fourth-quar-
ter prot rose 24 percent.
Despite the lackluster start to the
year, most investors see no cause to
call an end to the stock markets rally
just yet. The S&P 500 is down 0.2 per-
cent in 2014 after a gain of almost 30
percent last year.
You had a massive run last year,
said Russ Koesterich, chief invest-
ment strategist at BlackRock. And
its not unreasonable that the market
digests those gains.
So far, the stock market has failed to
get a lift from the company earnings
reports that have come out.
Companies are forecast to increase
their fourth-quarter earnings by 5.4
percent over the same period a year
earlier to a record $27.77 a share,
according to S&P Capital IQ data. That
would be a slight decline from the
third quarter growth rate of 5.6 percent
and lower than last years pace of 7.7
Much like last year, small compa-
nies are again outperforming their
larger counterparts. While the S&P
500 has moved sideways since the
start of year, the Russell 2000, an
index that tracks smaller companies,
is up 1.5 percent. The Nasdaq compos-
ite is up 1.6 percent.
In government bond trading, the
yield on the 10-year Treasury note
climbed to 2.86 percent from 2.83
percent late Tuesday.
S&P 500 ekes out another small gain
You had a massive run last year. ... And its not
unreasonable that the market digests those gains.

investor Carl Icahn has raised his stake
in Apple as he escalates his campaign
to pressure the company into buying
back more of its stock while the shares
remain stuck far below their peak price.
In a Wednesday post on his Twitter
account, Icahn revealed that he has
poured another $500 million into
Apple stock during the past two
weeks. He already owned about 4.7
million Apple Inc. shares worth more
than $2.5 billion.
Given the stocks
trading range during
the past two weeks,
Icahn probably
picked up another
800,000 to 1 mil-
lion shares. That
would still leave his
total stake in the
iPhone and iPad
maker below 1 percent.
Icahn is urgi ng Apple to spend
$50 billion buying back its own
stock during the current fiscal year
ending in September.
That target would require Apples
eight-member board to up the ante on a
$60 billion stock buyback program
adopted nine months ago. Apple still
had $37 billon available to spend under
that program entering October.
Regulatory lings indicate Apple spent
about $5 billion of that amount buying
back its stock during the rst three
months of this scal year.
The company is expected to provide
a specic gure on its stock buybacks
Monday when it releases its latest quar-
terly earnings.
Icahn raises Apple stake, now owns $3B in stock
EBay 4Q earnings up, Icahn proposes PayPal split
NEWYORK EBay said Wednesday that earnings and
revenue grew in the last three months of 2013, driven by a
strong holiday season for its e-commerce site and its fast-
growing payments business, PayPal.
The company also said it has received a notice from
activist investor Carl Icahn seeking a spinoff of PayPal.
EBay said the billionaire investor has nominated two of
his employees to the companys board and now owns a
stake of 0.82 percent in the San Jose-based company.
Shares of eBay rose $2.61, or 4.8 percent, to $57.02 in
extended trading.
But eBay said it has looked into a split and does not
believe it is best for shareholders.
Payment is part of commerce, and as part of eBay,
PayPal drives commerce innovation in payments at glob-
al scale, creating value for consumers, merchants and
shareholders, eBay said in a statement.
PayPal, which eBay bought for $1.3 billion in late
2002, is now growing faster than the companys core mar-
ketplaces business. Payments revenue of $1.84 billion
accounted for about 41 percent of the quarters total rev-
enue. Recently, PayPal has been expanding into brick-
and-mortar stores from serving solely as an online pay-
ments service.
Facebooks Zuckerberg
gives $5M for health center
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife are donat-
ing $5 million to help expand a community health center
in Silicon Valley.
The gift announced Wednesday will cover part of
the $29 million cost for adding another facility to the
Ravenswood Family Health Center in East Palo Alto.
Thats not far from Facebook Inc.s headquarters in Menlo
The new building is expected to be complete next year.
The 29-year-old Zuckerberg has become one of the
worlds richest people since he started Facebooks online
social network at Harvard University nearly a decade ago.
Forbes magazine estimates his wealth at $19 billion.
Zuckerberg has been funneling some of fortune into phi-
lanthropy. Last year, he and his wife, Priscilla Chan,
donated Facebook stock valued at $900 million to the
Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
Chicken plant reopens after cockroach cleanup
FRESNO A Central California chicken processing
plant has resumed operations after shutting down for two
weeks to combat an infestation of cockroaches.
Foster Farms in Livingston said on Wednesday that it
had called its employees back to work after ensuring all
necessary measures were taken to properly clean the plant.
Inspectors for the U.S. Department of Agriculture closed
the plant on Jan. 8 after nding cockroaches on ve sepa-
rate occasions over four months. That closure came three
months after inspectors threatened a shutdown because of
salmonella problems at the Livingston plant and two
Foster Farms sites in Fresno.

The Hillsdale boys soccer team
was poised to take command of the
Peninsula Athletic Leagues Ocean
Division table when the Knights
took a 2-0 lead over South City at
halftime in San Mateo Tuesday
But a Warriors goal in the rst
minute of the second half gave
them new life and they completed
a stunning comeback with a pair
of goals in the nal eight minutes
to post a 3-2 victory and remain
undefeated in Ocean Division play
at 5-0.
The loss was the rst in league
play for Hillsdale (4-1).
They stepped up in the second
half, South City coach Alejandro
Escamilla said through interpreter
Luis DeAlba. Today, South City
showed they can play.
With the score tied at 2 in the
waning minutes, South City was
the beneciary of a lucky bounce.
Danny Basulto sent a cross toward
the Hillsdale penalty box that was
blocked by a Knights defender.
The ball bounced right to Angel
Nevarez, however, who pounded
into it the net in the 78th minute
for his second goal of the game.
Nevarezs goal in the opening
minute of the second half gave the
Warriors the motivation they
needed to complete the rally.
In the second half, they (South
City) wanted it more, said
Hillsdale coach Andy Hodzic.
The comeback would not have
been possible, however, if not for
one play by South City defender
Jose Plascencia. Hillsdales Brian
Lau, who scored both goals for the
Knights, was looking to complete
his hat trick in the 70th minute.
After the South City goalkeeper
blocked an initial shot, the
rebound went to Lau and, with the
goalkeeper on the ground, Lau
sent a shot toward goal.
Plascencia, however, was back-
ing up the play and cleared it out of
Two minutes later, the Warriors
tied the game. Basulto triggered
the play when he chipped a ball
into space at the top of the
Hillsdale penalty box. Jerry
Barajas came running on and, with
the Hillsdale goalkeeper off his
line and in no-mans land, Barajas
chipped the ball over and into the
far right side of the net to knot the
game at 2.
In the rst 40 minutes, Hillsdale
did a good job of building up its
attack through the mideld, run-
ning its offense through mideld-
ers Angel Hernandez and Nicolas
Naar. Salvador Hernandez proved
dangerous on the left ank, but it
was Lau who found the back of the
net both times for the Knights.

There were two games going on
when the Aragon boys basketball
team hosted Burlingame
Wednesday night.
One was, obviously, the
matchup between the Panthers and
the Dons squads, a pair of teams
undefeated in the Peninsula
Athletic League South Division
The other story line was the
matchup between arguably the two
best point guards on the Peninsula
Burlingames Frankie Ferrari
and Aragons Alex Manu.
Burlingame ended up winning
both. The Panthers pulled out a
thrilling 76-72 overtime win and
when the game was on the line, it
was Ferrari who out-dueled Alex
It was an incredible game to
watch, said Burlingame coach
Pete Harames.
Alex Manu scored a game-high
32 points, while Ferrari nished
with 30. But none of Ferraris
points were bigger than the ones
he scored in overtime. Of the
Panthers 13 overtime points,
Ferrari scored 11 draining a trio
of 3-pointers in the process,
including the dagger with 22 sec-
onds to play.
I knew I had to take over (in
overtime), Ferrari said. We made
a few clutch shots down the stretch
to win the game.

OAKLAND When Eric OFlaherty
returns to health and his former form, the
Oakland Athletics believe they have one of
baseballs best left-handers to add to an
already stout bullpen.
The As further bolstered their pitching
staff Wednesday, agreeing with the free-
agent lefty on a $7 million, two-year con-
OFlaherty, who turns 29 next month,
sustained a torn ulnar collateral ligament in
his pitching elbow last season with Atlanta.
He went 3-0 with a 2.50 ERA in 19 appear-
ances before his season ended May 17 and
he had elbow ligament-replacement surgery.
As assistant general manager David Forst
said there is no timetable for when
OFlaherty might be ready to pitch again
following the long rehab process following
that surgery.
Once healthy, he could provide depth in a
bullpen featuring newcomers Jim Johnson
and Luke Gregerson, and Ryan Cook, Sean
Doolittle and Dan Otero.
Over the past three years, OFlahertys
1.45 ERA in 161 appearances is the lowest
among relievers with 125 or more innings.
Hes been one of the best left-handers in
the game over the last three years and
proven he can pitch anywhere, including
toward the end of the game, Forst said.
OFlaherty, originally a sixth-round
selection in the 2003 amateur draft by the
Seattle Mariners, he owns a 20-9 career
record with a 2.85 ERA over parts of eight
major league seasons.
To clear room on the 40-man roster for
OFlaherty, the two-time defending AL West
champion As designated outelder Corey
Brown for assignment.
During a busy December, general manager
Billy Beane acquired AL saves leader
Johnson from Baltimore as the replacement
for All-Star closer Grant Balfour. Oakland
also traded for right-handed reliever
Gregerson in a swap that sent outelder Seth
Smith to the Padres. Lefty Scott Kazmir
received a $22 million, two-year contract to
ll a spot in the rotation that lost 40-year-
old 18-game winner Bartolo Colon.

NEWYORK The Yankees talked frugality,
then reverted to their high-spending ways.
New York capped an offseason spending
spree by agreeing Wednesday to a $155 mil-
lion, seven-year contract with prized Japanese
pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.
Following just the second season in 19
years that didnt include a playoff appearance,
the Yankees exed their economic might and
committed $438 million to four free agents.
Tanaka joined catcher Brian McCann and
outelders Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran
on a revamped roster missing long-time All-
Stars Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and
Robinson Cano.
And in addition to the deal with the 25-year-
old right-hander, the Yankees must pay a $20
million posting fee to Tanakas Japanese club,
the Rakuten Golden Eagles.
Anybody that questioned our commitment
to winning is going to have to question them-
selves, Yankees co-chairman Hank
Steinbrenner said during a telephone inter-
view with The Associated Press.
Big league teams had until Friday to reach an
agreement with Tanaka, who was 24-0 with a
1.27 ERAlast year as the Golden Eagles won
the Japan Series title. Arizona, the Chicago
Cubs and White Sox, the Los Angeles Dodgers
and Houston all said they were among the
failed bidders.
Still, the Yankees have ample uncertainty
especially in an AL East where they compete
with World Series champion Boston. And
especially with a veteran team that saw 21
players go on the disabled list last year.
David Robertson appears set to inherit the
closers role from the retired Rivera, and New
York must try to make up the offense lost when
Cano left for a $240 million, 10-year deal
with Seattle. Alex Rodriguez is suspended for
the entire season and 39-year-old shortstop
Derek Jeter has played just 17 games since
October 2012.
I think the entire ineld is certainly some-
thing that people will focus on, New York
general manager Brian Cashman said. Whats
Brian Roberts going to be? Whats Derek Jeter
going to be as he comes back from his injury?
Whats Mark Teixeira going to be at rst base
as he comes back from his wrist? Can Kelly
Johnson secure and handle on a consistent
basis third base?
New York went 85-77 last year, its worst
record since 1992. Attendance and television
ratings dropped.
The pinstriped response was similar to the
Yankees behavior after they missed the play-
offs in 2008. They spent $423.5 million on
CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Teixeira, then
won their 27th World Series title.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. After
hurrying Denvers quick-strike,
high-octane offense through a
record-shattering regular season,
Peyton Manning has turned the
Broncos into a slow-grinding,
clock-eating machine in the play-
Denvers three most time-con-
suming drives of the season have
all come in the last two weeks,
helping to render opposing
passers short-tempered sideline
In dispatching the San Diego
Chargers and the New England
Patriots, Manning dinked and
dunked his way downeld.
To keep Tom Brady on the side-
line is a good thing, Manning
said after directing two epic drives
in Denvers 26-16 win in the AFC
Denvers downshift, some of it
by design, some due to circum-
stance, has thrown a new wrinkle
into an already formidable test
that Seattles stingy defense will
have to prepare for in the Super
After averaging seven plays, 65
yards and just over 3 minutes, 10
seconds on their 71 touchdown
drives during the season, the
Broncos have doubled the time to
6:23 in the postseason and the
touchdown drives have averaged
12 plays and 79.4 yards.
With a wealth of receivers in
Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker,
Wes Welker and Julius Thomas and
a rejuvenated running back in
Knowshon Moreno, the Broncos
are the rst team in NFL history to
sport ve players who each caught
60 or more passes. Each member
of this quintet also reached the end
zone 10 or more times, something
thats never been done before.
Offensive coordinator Adam
Gase capitalized on all that re-
power, Denvers altitude and
Mannings deciphering of defens-
es at the line of scrimmage to ramp
up the Broncos to breakneck speed
with a no-huddle offense that creat-
ed mismatches in 2013 after tak-
ing over from the more conserva-
tive Mike McCoy following last
years playoff upset.
The Broncos scored an NFL-
record 606 points. Their 37.9-
point average was the highest of
the Super Bowl era and second
only to the 1950 Los Angeles
Rams, who averaged 38.8 points.
The Broncos could have beaten
that mark, too, had Manning not
sat out the second half at Oakland
in Week 17 after guiding Denver to
a 31-0 halftime lead.
Taking away the three eld goals
backup Brock Osweiler led the
Broncos to this season and
Denvers ve return touchdowns,
Mannings offense accounted for
565 points in just over 453 min-
utes on the eld.
Thats 1.25 points per minute.
Scoring doesnt come as easily
in the playoffs, however.
The most prolic team before
this season was the 2007 Patriots,
who scored 589 points, an average
of 36.8, in the regular season and
then averaged just 22 in the post-
season, losing the Super Bowl 17-
14 to the New York Giants.
While the Broncos have scored
on 10 of their 14 drives this post-
season, not counting the two pos-
sessions that ended in victory for-
mation, half of those have been
eld goals by Matt Prater after
promising drives stalled at their
opponents 27, 9, 17, 2 and 35.
In the regular season, they had
71 touchdown drives and 25 eld
That accounts for a lot of their
dip to a 25-point scoring average
in the playoffs.
Yet, theyre in greater control
and their defense is better than its
been all season, yielding just 17
and 16 points after allowing
24.93 points per game in the regu-
lar season.
Credit Manning for keeping the
Broncos on the eld for an average
of 35 minutes, 35 seconds to his
opponents 24:25.
Philip Rivers, whose Chargers
led the league in time of posses-
sion and had controlled the clock
for more than 38 minutes in both
of their regular-season matchups
against Denver, watched helpless-
ly as Manning converted 9 of 13
third downs in their divisional
playoff game.
Manning had a tone-setting, 14-
play, 86-yard touchdown drive that
took 7:01 to start the scoring,
then staved off San Diegos furious
fourth-quarter rally by converting
two key third down passes to
Julius Thomas to chew up the nal
four minutes.
If we got it one more time, I
believe deep down that we
wouldve tied that thing up,
Rivers said after San Diegos 24-
17 loss. Those are all a bunch of
what ifs.
Against New England, Manning
directed drives that lasted 7:01 and
7:08, covering 93 and 80 yards in
15 and 13 plays, respectively.
It was quite a change for the
Broncos, who kicked off the NFL
season against Baltimore with a
24-yard touchdown that took all of
5 seconds, one of Mannings
record-tying seven that night.
Demaryius Thomas third-quarter
TD Sunday capped a drive that took
almost as long as those seven TD
drives in the opener combined.
Usually we score fast, he said.
But we had a 13-play drive and I
got to the sideline, thats all
everybody was talking about. I
didnt know. I just knew we
High-octane Broncos can grind it out, too
By Tim Booth
RENTON, Wash. Richard
Sherman wondered if he came to
the NFL 20 years too late.
The Seattle Seahawks All-Pro
cornerback wondered if his swag-
ger might have t better a few
decades earlier when that con-
dence and an unltered tongue was
perhaps more accepted.
I studied the old school game
more than I studied the new school
game, and I play it that way. It rubs
a lot of people the wrong way,
Sherman said Wednesday. Giving
a true speech after a game, a true
passionate speech is old school
football. Playing press corner and
sitting up there every play is old
school foot-
ball. I guess
maybe I just
havent adjusted
to the times.
S h e r m a n
spoke at length
for the rst time
since Sundays
NFC champi-
onship game
win over San
Francisco where his postgame
comments to Fox reporter Erin
Andrews became the talking point.
It was a loud, emotional moment
that happened just a few minutes
after the Seahawks earned the sec-
ond Super Bowl berth in franchise
Sherman was at the center of the
decisive play, deflecting a pass
intended for Michael Crabtree in
the end zone and watching team-
mate Malcolm Smith run over to
intercept it to clinch the victory.
Shermans ensuing remarks were
directed mostly at Crabtree but his
intense, shouting delivery is what
took people aback.
Sherman said the reaction that
followed over the next two days
left him a little stunned as well.
I was surprised by it. Because
were talking about football here
and a lot of people took it a little
bit further than football. Sherman
said. I guess some people showed
how far we have really come in this
day and age and it was kind of pro-
found what happened and peoples
opinions of that nature, because I
was on a football eld showing
passion. Maybe it was misdirect-
ed, maybe things may have been
immature, maybe things could
have been worded better but this is
on a football eld. I didnt commit
any crimes, I wasnt doing any-
thing illegal. I was showing pas-
sion after a football game.
Sherman apologized for taking
away the spotlight from the per-
formances by some of his team-
mates. Marshawn Lynchs 109
yards rushing and 40-yard touch-
down, Jermaine Kearses 35-yard
touchdown catch on fourth-down
and Bobby Wagners 15 tackles all
became secondary to Shermans
What seemed to bother Sherman
the most in the fallout was hearing
the word thug attached to his
The only reason it bothers me
is it seems like its an accepted way
of calling someone the N-word
nowadays. Its like everybody else
said the N-word and they said thug
and theyre like, thats fine,
Sherman said. Thats where it
kind of takes me aback. Its kind of
disappointing because they know.
What is the denition of a thug,
Sherman then referenced seeing
highlights of the Vancouver
Canucks and Calgary Flames play-
ing on Saturday when a ght broke
out two seconds into the game.
They didnt even play hockey.
They just threw their sticks aside
and started ghting, he said. I
saw that and said, Oh, man, Im
the thug? Whats going on here.
Geez. Im really disappointed in
being called a thug.
Seattles Sherman surprised by public reaction
Denvers three most time-consuming drives of the season have all come in the last
two weeks, helping to render opposing passers short-tempered sideline spectators.
Thursday Jan. 23, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
23rd minute on a brilliant piece of improvisation by Lau.
Bryan Kuga sent a diagonal pass to the top of the South
City penalty box where Lau bolted past the defense, did a
spin move on top of the ball while dragging it with his
toe. The move got Lau into space and he beat the stunned
Warriors goalkeeper to the far left post for the score.
Lau gave Hillsdale a 2-0 lead in the 33rd minute off an
assist from Arie Pisarevsky, who tapped a little through
ball that found Lau, who, again, beat the goalkeeper to
the left.
While Hillsdale was controlling the game with a series
of one-touch passes, South Citys attack was much more
direct. The Warriors did not employ a lot of ball move-
ment, instead, taking one touch and launching long balls
over the top.
It resulted in a few quality chances, but Hillsdale goal-
keeper Michael Golden kept the Warriors in check.
Bad defense, bad passes, people not concentrating,
was how Escamilla described his teams play in the rst
But after Escamilla got into his team at halftime, the
Warriors came out a different squad in the second half.
Crisp ball movement to start the second half resulted in
Nevarezs rst goal for the Warriors. Two passes got the
ball to Barajas and, from 35 yards out, he sent a ball over
the top of the Hillsdale defense. Nevarez ran on, had a
breakaway and did not miss, burying his shot in the back
of the net.
Hillsdale had a chance to increase its lead a few minutes
later when it was awarded a free kick from 21 yards out.
But Angel Hernandezs shot hit the underside of the cross-
bar and bounced back into the eld of play where the
South City goalkeeper grabbed it.
It was a pretty good game, Hodzic said.

game in regulation. The Dons, who trailed 32-31 at halftime,
outscored Burlingame 18-12 in the third quarter to take a 49-
44 lead into the nal eight minutes.
That would be as large as the Dons lead would get. Aragon
had that same ve-point lead with six minutes to play when
Alex Manu hit one of his four 3s on the game, but
Burlingame answered with an 11-2 run, ignited by a Kevin
Abuyaghi 3.
After Trevor Pagaduan knocked down a oater for Aragon,
Ferrari took over. He nailed one 3 to close the Panthers
decit to one, 57-56, with 4:29 left. On Burlingames next
possession, Ferrari let y a shot even deeper and nailed it to
give the Panthers a 59-57 lead. Justin Gutang followed with
a layup and, just like that, Burlingame had a 61-57 lead with
3:17 left.
Aragon came right back. Kevin Hahn drained the third of
his four 3s with 2:49 left in regulation to cut the Burlingame
lead to 61-60. Then, Alex Manu made the play of the night
when he received the ball at the top of the key, drove the lane
and converted an impossible, twisting layup and got the foul.
His free throw gave the Dons a 63-61 lead with 1:40 to play.
Of course, Ferrari had a response, knocking down a shot off
the dribble to tie the game at 63.
Aragon had two more looks to win the game, but neither
Toby Liebergesells 3-pointer with ve seconds left or Kono
Filimoehala-Egans last-ditch shot at the buzzer could nd
the bottom of the net.
If someone told me that we would have the ball and a
chance to win Ill take that every day of the week, Aragon
coach Sam Manu said. It was a great matchup. Just a fun
The rst half was just as exciting as the second and over-
time as the two teams raced up and down the court. In the rst
quarter, it seemed everyone but Ferrari and Alex Manu were
scoring as the Panthers built a 16-12 after eight minutes of
In the second quarter, the point guards took over, as they
played their own personal battle of anything-you-can-do-I-
can-do-better. Ferrari scored nine of his teams 16 points in
the second period.
But Alex Manu was even better, scoring 14 of his teams 20
When we were going back and forth, it was like, OK, you
scored, now Im going to score, Alex Manu said. (But)
sometimes you can get carried away and get away from the
Ferrari echoed similar sentiments.
From a fan standpoint, its fun to watch. But Im always
trying to facilitate the offense and when the moment (to
score) presents itself, I go into attack mode, Ferrari said.
In the end, Ferrari had just a little more support than Alex
Manu did. If not for that battle, the story of the night would
have been between the teams two wing players.
Burlingames Gutang had a monster game of his own, scoring
25 points, with nine coming in the third quarter.
Gutangs performance was nearly matched by Aragons
Hahn, who nished with 20, scoring 14 in the second half
and overtime.
Burlingame center Nick Loew was nearly unstoppable in
the post, scoring 14 points and pulling down 11 rebounds.
Aragon got 10 from Liebergesell to give both teams three
starters in double gures.
Too bad anybody loses (this game), Sam Manu said.
Continued from page 11
As close as safely possible, that is.
If you dont know where the break is, it can be absolutely dead-
ly, Mattusch said. People dont understand, waves come in at
about 35 mph. People dont understand it can be utterly at and
you think youre in a safe place, but there are currents taking you
one direction and winds can be taking you in another direction and
the tides can take you a different direction.
What was totally safe at one moment, can change in the next.
During the contest, I set an imaginary line
(that I dont cross).
The dangers of maneuvering a boat that
size was most evident in the movie,
Chasing Mavericks. During the climactic
nal sequence that shows the lms main
character surng the break for the rst time,
there is a shot of the Huli Cat barely making
it over a wave the boats bow pushing up
at a 45-degree angle before slamming down
on the backside of the wave. You can see peo-
ple on the bow holding on for dear life.
That was no Hollywood special effect. Those were the real dan-
gers and risks Mattusch and his Huli Cat encounter whenever they
go out for a day of watching Mavericks.
It takes a professional to maneuver a 53-foot boat through the
perils that the Mavericks break presents. Contest day is no picnic
for Mattusch and the Huli Cat. It is not a leisurely day in Half
Moon Bay when contest time rolls around. He has no time to sit
back and enjoy the scenery. His main concern is keeping every-
one on the Huli Cat alive.
I have to put a lot more time into keeping people (on the Huli
Cat) safe. The main thing is safety, Mattusch said. (But) Ive
always tried to work diligently to get [people] in the right spot (to
enjoy the contest).
And given the circus environment that pops up on contest day,
it is easier said than done. The Huli Cat is but one in an armada of
different sized boats and means of transport from the 53-foot
Huli Cat to Coast Guard cutters to personal water crafts to swim-
mers. Mattusch said hes has seen people on surfboards, standup-
paddle boards and even swimmers out there trying to get as close
to the action as possible.
The hard part is, there are some people who follow the rules,
then there are other people who ignore safety and say theyre
going to get in (what they think is a good) position no matter
what. That creates a safety concern for everyone, Mattusch said.
Its worrisome. Turns out, there are no hard-and-fast rules.
Its a real thing to maneuver and manipulate. Everybody gets
fairly aggressive and everyone wants the best view, the best
It is no pleasure cruise when Mattusch takes the Huli Cat out on
Mavericks day. He said he works harder on that day than the rest
of the year combined. He said it is a constant battle to keep the
Huli Cat out of harms way, so he is constantly working the boats
throttle accelerating and reversing to keep the boat in the
right place.
You will shift your boat more times in a few hours than the bal-
ance of the rest of the year, Mattusch said. Its total work.
Mattusch has spent most of his adult life on the sea. Hes shed
the West Coast since 1967 and was a diver for more than 20 years.
He can certainly appreciate what the surfers who ride Mavericks
It is utterly beyond comprehension to see a guy take a 15-foot
free fall and then surf the wave, Mattusch said. This is one of the
most serious waves in the world. When you talk about tons of
water holding you down (following a wipeout), you have to have
a special condence.
If youre planning on trying to get as close as possible to
Mavericks, Mattusch has one suggestion everyone should heed.
Get on a licensed boat with professional people who have a lot
of experience on the water, Mattusch said.
In other words, let the professionals handle the navigation of

Marlins president a castaway on new Survivor
MIAMI Miami Marlins President David Samson is
among 18 castaways on the new season of Survivor,
which begins Feb. 26 on CBS.
The cast also includes a high-stakes poker player, an
ex-NFL cheerleader, a nuclear engineer and former NBA
All-Star Cliff Robinson.
In a biography released by the network, Samson lists
as his claim to fame getting the government in Miami to
contribute over $350 million to a new baseball park dur-
ing the recession. Critics called the nancing plan a
taxpayer rip-off, and a backlash against the deal resulted
in the recall of the county mayor.
As for while he thinks hell win, Samson said, I
always win, because people underestimate me.
The new season of Survivor takes place in Cagayan,
a province in the Philippines.

DALLAS Former Dallas
Cowboys player Josh Brent was
convicted of intoxication
manslaughter Wednesday for a ery
wreck that killed his teammate and
close friend, Jerry Brown.
Brent, 25, showed no reaction
when he learned the verdict. He was
led from the courtroom in handcuffs
in front of crying family members
who were in the front row of the
courtroom gallery.
He faces up to 20 years in prison,
though he could also get probation.
Brent was charged in a December
2012 wreck in a Dallas suburb that
killed Brown, a practice squad line-
backer who was Brents close friend
and also a teammate at the
University of Illinois.
The two men were headed home
from partying with fellow
Cowboys at a nightclub when Brent
lost control of his Mercedes, caus-
ing a ery accident. Ofcers who
arrived on scene said Brent was seen
trying to pull Browns body from
the wreckage.
Police say Brents blood-alcohol
level was tested shortly after the
crash at 0.18 percent, more than
twice the legal limit for drivers in
Texas. Prosecutors last week argued
that the burly, 320-pound defensive
tackle had as many as 17 drinks that
night of the crash.
Brents attorneys argued the
blood tests used by police were
faulty and that Brent could not have
drank nearly that much. Attorney
George Milner said his client was
guilty of being stupid behind the
wheel of a car, not drinking before-
Brent retired from the NFL last
year, but his ties to the Cowboys
were prominent at trial. Two current
players, Barry Church and Danny
McCray, testied about hanging out
with Brent and Brown, rst playing
video games, then having dinner
and going to Privae, a Dallas night-

Tea gardens are becoming a popular way for brew lovers to bypass the store and enjoy the
benets of herbal tea without additives or preservatives.
By Sarah Wolfe
When temperatures fall, theres nothing
better than a piping hot cup of tea.
And as craft and organic tea seeps into the
mainstream, tea gardens are becoming a
popular way for brew lovers to bypass the
store and enjoy the benets of herbal tea
without additives or preservatives.
It just tastes and smells better, says chef
Kimmy Tang, who snips mint, lavender and
lemongrass from her garden for herbal teas
at her 9021PHO restaurants in Los Angeles.
I also know that its 100 percent organic.
I dont use any chemicals to help them grow,
and I can taste the difference.
It may sound daunting, but British garden-
er and author Cassie Liversidge says many
tea garden staples may already be at your n-
Honeysuckle, mint, rosemary. Theyre
all quite common plants, but can be turned
into tea, says Liversidge, author of the
forthcoming book Homegrown Tea: An
Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting
and Blending Teas and Tisanes (St.
Martins Grifn, March 2014).
She and other tea gardeners offer the fol-
lowing tips to get your feet wet:
First and foremost, no sprawling English
estate is required here.
Tea gardens come in many forms, and
dont even need to be in the ground. Tang
grows her herbs in a vertical garden hanging
on a wall behind her restaurants, while other
city dwellers cramped for space use pots and
other containers.
All you need is dirt, water and some seeds.
Agreat way to get started is to buy a plas-
tic indoor sun garden at Lowes or Home
Depot, along with the seeds and pieces of
dirt that expand with water, says

We Dont Meet
Our Competition,
We Create It
By Sean Conway
Believe it or not, spring is on the way.
Each day is a bit longer than the last, and
were almost through January, typically
one of the toughest winter months to
So far, this winter has been a bit of a
weather roller coaster. In much of the coun-
try, we were rocked by an unusual event,
the polar vortex, an icy arctic blast that
produced record-low temperatures. This
was followed by a thaw that raised the mer-
cury to the 40s, showing just how unpre-
dictable nature can be.
This seesawing of temperatures is very
hard on plants, especially evergreens.
Extreme cold temperatures make anything
holding moisture brittle, and added weight
from snow and ice strains stems, branches
and trunks, often causing them to break or
For many evergreen plants the biggest
problem during cold weather is access to
moisture at their roots. When soil freezes,
any water that is above the frost line
becomes rock hard and is no longer avail-
able to the plants roots.
When water is no longer available to the
plant, and while it is still transpiring
moisture through its leaves, the plant suf-
fers what is called winter burn. Essentially,
the outer edges of the leaf or stem die and
turn brown. Severe winter burn can cause
the entire leaf to turn brown and fall off.
Mild cases cause only cosmetic damage,
but extreme cases can kill a plant.
Broad-leaved evergreens such as azaleas,
rhododendrons, holly, mountain laurel,
boxwood and Southern Magnolias are par-
ticularly susceptible to winter burn, as are
evergreen groundcovers like ophiopogon
and liriope.
One way to help prevent winter burn on
evergreens is to plant them where they will
be protected from harsh winter winds.
Winter wind rapidly removes moisture
from leaves. For added protection, wrap
the plants in burlap. You neednt worry
about blocking sunlight from the plant
since it will be dormant during the winter
In fact, keeping the sun off the leaves is
another good way to protect Broad-leaved
evergreens during the winter months. If at
all possible, site your plants in areas that
receive winter shade. It will greatly reduce
their chances of winter burn.
Contrary to what you might think, the
winter sun, rather than having a warming
effect on your plants, dries them out
instead. This is especially true if their
roots are frozen solid with no access to
My zone 6 garden is about the northern
edge of hardiness for a tree like a southern
magnolia. Many years ago, I planted one
in a location shaded all winter long by
some large western cedars; not only has it
thrived, but its beautiful dark green glossy
leaves show no signs of winter damage.
Another way to help small broad leaved
plants survive the winter with minimal
damage is to cover them with evergreen
boughs. This is very helpful especially in
areas with cold temperatures and minimal
Snow cover helps many plants since it
buffers them from desiccating winds and
keeps temperatures steady. We get sporadic
snowfall where I live, so I compensate by
placing pine boughs over my dwarf ever-
greens as well as over my beds of black
mondo grass (aka ophiopogon), another
plant growing at the far edge of its cold
The branches create shade and keep wind
damage to a minimum. If you dont have
access to pine boughs where you live, sal-
vaged branches from discarded Christmas
trees will work nicely too.
Protect your evergreens from winters grip
Contrary to what you might expect, ample snow cover can help protect plants from winter

Liversidge recommends easy-to-grow
plants like mint, lavender or chamomile for
If youve already got those growing, take
a stab at other popular tea ingredients like
coriander, lemon balm, rose hips, hibiscus
and jasmine.
Keep the plants in an area that gets at
least six hours of sunlight each day, rotate
them often and monitor moisture per direc-
tions on the seed packet.
Each plant is unique when it comes to har-
The ower tops are the most medicinal
part of the rosemary plant, for example, so
be sure to clip those off along with the
leaves for tea, Liversidge says.
Fennel is valued for its seeds, and those
must be shaken out from the owers once
they turn brown. Snip flowers like
chamomile at the base of their stems, not
the top, so you can use the stems, leaves and
petals in your brew, according to
Many herbs can be used fresh, but drying
them is a good way to keep your tea cup-
board stocked through the winter.
Tie them up and hang them in bundles to
dry, or spread them out on a at surface in
the sun. A dehydrator or an oven at a tem-
perature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit or lower
can also be used.
With my lemongrass, I cut it and freeze
it to keep the nutrients locked in, says
No matter the method, be sure to store
your tea ingredients in airtight containers.
There are a few ways to brew your home-
made tea, depending on the ingredients and
personal preference.
Hershey, Pa.-based writer and photogra-
pher Amy Renea prefers to chop off big
hunks of fresh mint, lemon balm,
chamomile and sometimes stevia from her
tea garden and put them right in the tea ket-
Once its reached boiling, pull the kettle
off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes
before pouring into your favorite tea cup.
I strain the tea through a small tea mesh
strainer, but any strainer will do, Renea
Liversidge prefers lling empty tea bags
with homemade ingredients then youre
not tempted to put too much water with it
and letting them steep about three min-
utes before enjoying.
For the freshest tea possible, she advises
pouring fresh water into your tea kettle
every time. It has more oxygen, which will
bring out the teas avor.
Here is a recipe for a Vitamin C power

In the past, the city would throw all

but, with new City Manager Lisa

The city plans on doing a yearly

Saturday, which helps the council pri-
oritize programs and services for fund-

the community. The annual budget is
prepared as an integrated part of this
process to allocate funding for these
programs and services for the upcom-
ing scal year. It offers residents a
chance to review priorities and,
through public meetings during the
budget review and adoption process,
offer suggestions and input to the
council on those priorities.
Also in agreement with Deal and
Nagel was Councilman Ricardo Ortiz
who would like the extra money to be
saved for now.
There are a lot of fun ideas, he said.
But I would like to see it tucked away
into a rainy-day fund.
Additionally, $7.8 million came
from governmental activities and $5.3
million came from business-type oper-
ations like utilities operations in
2012-13. Government revenue was up
$5.7 million from the prior year due
largely to increases in transient occu-
pancy, property and sales taxes rev-

after declaring an ofcial drought.
He urged conservation among the
states 38 million residents and said
water recycling, expanded storage and
better management of groundwater sup-
plies will be needed. The states budget
reserves will be tested if the wildre
season explodes and communities run
short of water and need emergency
Some relief could come from an $11. 1
billion water bond scheduled to go
before voters in November, but the
measure is lled with problems, includ-
ing the price tag. Lawmakers have
delayed it twice and are considering
major changes, including lowering the
The current version has been criti-
cized for including too many unessen-
tial, special interest projects and for
not guaranteeing money for building
dams to create new reservoirs.
The drought also complicates one of
Browns top public works priorities, a
$25 billion plan to build two 30-mile
tunnels to ship water from Northern
California to Central Valley farms and
Southern California cities.
The lack of rain and snow, as well as
Browns own statement on Wednesday
that California is likely to see dimin-
ished Sierra snow packs in the future,
have raised questions about whether its
smart to build a project that is designed
to send even more water south.
Brown, who has given more State of
the State addresses than any other gov-
ernor in California history, delivered a
restrained speech that was largely with-
out surprises.
He touched on the states nancial
turnaround after years of budget decits,
and noted his continued efforts to reduce
the states prison population and equal-
ize public school funding.
Brown touted the one million new
jobs that have been created in
California since 2010 and said the state
faces budget surpluses in the billions of
dollars for the foreseeable future,
thanks to a rebounding economy and
tax increases approved by voters in
Yet he also said California continues
to face nancial challenges that could
imperil its future, including $100 bil-
lion in pension liabilities for state
workers, teachers and judges, tens of
billions more for retiree health care and
$65 billion to maintain roads and other
public works.
Browns budget starts paying down
some of the states debt, allotting $11
billion to that purpose, and sets aside
$1.6 billion in a rainy day fund. In
emphasizing his plea for fiscal
restraint, Brown provided a moment of
levity when he held up a playing card.
One side showed a bar graph of the
states recurring budget decits, while
the other had an image of his dog,
Sutter, with a message urging prudence.
The cards, which were handed out to
reporters covering the speech, carried
various messages attributed to the
Welsh corgi, including: Save some
biscuits for a rainy day.
Despite his call for budgetary
restraint, Brown will be challenged dur-
ing his expected re-election campaign
to explain why he continues to support
the $68 billion high-speed rail project.
It has been a priority of his, even as
public support has fallen and the
sources of money to pay for it become
increasingly elusive.
He made only a passing reference to
the bullet train during his 18-minute
Former U.S. Treasury ofcial Neel
Kashkari, a Republican who announced
his challenge to Brown on Tuesday,
criticized the governor for failing to
address poverty, low-performing
schools and Californias unemploy-
ment rate, which has been falling but
remains among the highest in the
nation at 8.5 percent.
Instead of doing the hard work of x-
ing these problems, Gov. Brown is
focused on touting record-high spend-
ing and building a crazy train that the
state doesnt want and cant afford,
Kashkari said in a prepared statement.
Browns other Republican chal-
lenger, state Assemblyman Tim
Donnelly, said the speech was devoid of
solutions for restoring the states pros-
perity, repairing its infrastructure and
cutting regulations.
I was shocked by the complete lack
of any cognizance of how most
Californians feel, he said.
The governors address came less
than two weeks after he delivered his
state budget proposal for the scal year
that starts in July, outlining a vision
that embraces frugality even as tax rev-
enue soars to a record level.
The $106.8 billion general fund he
proposed is nearly 9 percent more than
spending in the current scal year. That
includes $45.2 billion for K-12
schools, a year-over-year increase of
nearly $4 billion.
Browns vision for how the education
money is to be spent laid out in last
years address to the Legislature is
starting to take effect.
Last week, the state Board of
Education approved new rules that
direct school districts to funnel billions
of dollars of new revenue toward
schools that serve high numbers of stu-
dents from low-income families, who
are English-learners or are in foster

you are considering bidding on this prop-
erty lien, you should understand that
there are risks involved in bidding at a
trustee auction. You will be bidding on a
lien, not on the property itself. Placing
the highest bid at a trustee auction does
not automatically entitle you to free and
clear ownership of the property. You
should also be aware that the lien being
auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you
are the highest bidder at the auction, you
are or may be responsible for paying off
all liens senior to the lien being auctioned
off, before you can receive clear title to
the property. You are encouraged to in-
vestigate the existence, priority, and size
of outstanding liens that may exist on this
property by contacting the county record-
er's office or a title insurance company,
either of which may charge you a fee for
this information. If you consult either of
these resources, you should be aware
that the same lender may hold more than
one mortgage or deed of trust on the
sale date shown on this notice of sale
