San Mateo County coroner

Agirl thrown from a plane that crashed
at San Francisco International Airport
died before she was twice run over by re
trucks, according to a city-issued report
that contradicted a coroners nding that
the teen survived the crash and was killed
by the vehicles.
Instead, the city said in a report

is moving forward with plans for establish-
ing a district to help improve downtown and
other businesses in the city, but wants to
start with improving street cleanliness
At the end of last year, its viability as a
group was questioned by the City Council
and the committee itself expressed concerns
that it doesnt have the resources to make an
impact on Millbraes economy. These dis-
tricts, which need bond funds to function,
are revitalization tools for commercial
neighborhoods. They typically allow busi-
ness owners to approve an assessment that
would help pay for improvements such as
cleaning streets, providing security, mak-
ing capital improvements, construction of
pedestrian and streetscape enhancements
and marketing the area.
The district is in its embryonic stage, said
committee member Dan Rogers.
Were on the BID (business improve-
ment district) path, Rogers said. We will
discuss the benets of getting more control
in downtown and getting it cleaned up and

From a small farm town in Northern
California to the bright Los Angeles
stage lights, Belmont resident Laura
Sullivan couldnt be more appreciative
and enthusiastic after winning a
Grammy on Sunday for best new age
It denitely takes a village to pro-
duce any kind of artistic endeavor,
Sullivan said. Im just so grateful,
thats been my overriding emotion.
It was the rst time shed entered to
win a coveted award and her seventh
record, Loves River, landed her as
the second female soloist to ever win
in the category, Sullivan said. As a
member of the Recording Academys
San Francisco chapter for 10 years,
shes developed a network of leg-
endary and talented musicians and
along with her friends, family and hus-
band Eric, shes received tremendous
backing throughout the process,
Sullivan said.
She composes her own music and,
between recording at home, where she
lives with Eric and their 6-year-old
daughter and working with renowned
producers in San Francisco and
Vermont, the award-winning album she
started in 2011 was fueled with signi-
cant support, Sullivan said.
As a modern and broad genre, new
age music is intrinsically meant to
help listeners unwind, Sullivan said.
Theres a lot of different styles
within new age. But one thread would
be peacefulness and relaxing,
Sullivan said.
She cherishes her daughter and is
inspired by the gratitude she feels from
being a parent, Sullivan said. Her
music comes freely and she often
begins playing before developing
written compositions and assigning
song titles, Sullivan said.
This is going to sound really new

Police: New Mexico woman
calls 911 to avoid ticket
ROSWELL, N.M. Authorities say
a New Mexico woman called in a fake
report of a gunman near a convenience
store to help a friend avoid a trafc
ticket over a taillight.
Roswell police say 22-year-old
Savana Jimenez called 911 Sunday
morning hoping the ofcer who pulled
over the car she was a passenger in
would get dispatched to the fake crime.
Authorities say Jimenez called 911
while the officer was checking her
friends information.
Police say Jimenez later admitted
making the entire story up so the of-
cer would rush to the fake scene.
Roswell police spokeswoman
Sabrina Morales says Jimenez told
police she thought she had warrants
out for her arrest, but ofcials say she
Jimenez was arrested and charged
with obstruction. It was unknown if
she had an attorney.
Gassy German cows
blamed for barn explosion
BERLIN A herd of dairy cows
nearly lifted the roof off their barn in
central Germany when methane
released by the animals caused an
Police in Hesse state said in a state-
ment that a static electric charge
apparently triggered the detonation,
and a spurt of ame, on Monday at a
farm in Rasdorf. The roof was slightly
damaged and one cow suffered light
burns. No people were hurt.
Police say 90 cows are kept in the
shed and it wasnt clear why quantities
of methane had built up. Bovine
belching and atulence releases large
quantities of the gas.
Hundreds of living, dead
pythons found in home
SANTAANA ACalifornia school-
teacher was arrested Wednesday after
hundreds of living and dead pythons in
plastic bins were found stacked oor
to ceiling inside his stench-filled
home in suburban Orange County.
As investigators wearing respirator
masks carried the reptiles out of the
house and stacked them in the drive-
way, reporters and passers-by gagged
at the smell. Some held their noses or
walked away from the ve-bedroom
home to get a breath of air.
The smell alone I feel like I need
to take a shower for a week, said
police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
Theyre pretty much in all the bed-
rooms everywhere.
Officers found as many as 350
snakes, as well as numerous mice and
rats, in the Santa Ana home of William
Buchman after neighbors complained
about the smell. He was arrested for
investigation of neglect in the care of
animals, Bertagna said.
Buchman, 53, was still in custody
Wednesday afternoon, Bertagna said.
The Newport-Mesa Unified School
District, where he works, declined
comment, saying it was a police mat-
Buchman has not yet had a court
appearance or been formally charged
and it wasnt clear if he had an attor-
Authorities said he lived alone, and
neighbors said his mother, who had
lived with him, had passed away with-
in the past few years.
Sondra Berg, the supervisor for the
Santa Ana Police Departments Animal
Services Division, said four bedrooms
in the home were stacked from oor to
ceiling and wall to wall with plastic
bins on wooden and metal racks. The
bins were packed so tightly, Berg said,
that they didnt require lids because
there was no room for the snakes to
slither out.
Each snake was catalogued by name
and type, and Berg said Buchman told
authorities he was involved in a
snake-breeding enterprise.
House of Horrors: Thats the best
way to describe it, Berg said of the
house. I mean theres so many dead
snakes ... ranging from dead for
months to just dead. Theres an infes-
tation of rats and mice all over the
house. There are rats and mice in plas-
tic storage tubs that are actually canni-
balizing each other.

SACRAMENTO Assembly Speaker
John Perez said Wednesday that the
Legislature will try this
year to find a way to start
paying down
Californias massive
unfunded liability for
teacher pensions, which
makes up the largest por-
tion of the states deficit
and is estimated as high
as $80 billion.
Further delays only
mean further costs and further exposures
for the states general fund, said Perez, D-
Los Angeles.
The solution should include payments
from the state, school districts and indi-
vidual teachers, he said.
Perez and Assemblyman Rob Bonta, a
fellow Democrat from Alameda who is
chairman of the Assembly Committee on
Public Employees, Retirement and Social
Security, announced that the committee
would hold hearings starting in February.
But they provided few details about a pro-
posal, saying they would be determined
according to what the committee hears.
Gov. Jerry Brown did not include any
additional funding for the California State
Teachers Retirement System liability in
his recent budget proposal but said he
hoped to start conversations about the
problem, which he called daunting.
Browns budget said that the states long-
term role as a direct contributor to the plan
should be evaluated, and Brown told
reporters he doubted a legislative solution
was likely this year.
Were ready to go to work with the
Legislature, teachers and school officials
to craft an equitable and sustainable solu-
tion, said H.D. Palmer, a spokesman for
Browns Department of Finance, in an
emailed statement
He said the governors office expects the
legislative hearings to evaluate all par-
ties role in funding.
Democrats have repeatedly cited the need
to address the pension liabilities, but a
solution that has support from teachers
unions, school districts and state officials
has proved elusive.
The deficit for the nations largest educa-
tor-only pension fund is so large that the
fund is projected to deplete all its assets in
about 30 years. It would cost teachers,
local school districts, community col-
leges and the state budget a combined $4.5
billion a year to bridge the gap.
Unlike other professions, teachers in
California do not pay into Social Security
and thus do not receive it when they retire,
making their CalSTRS pensions particu-
larly vital.
Less than an hour after Perez held his
news conference Wednesday, the powerful
California Teachers Association, which
represents more than 325,000 teachers and
other school employees, announced its
endorsement of Perez in his bid for the
office of state controller.
Browns Department of Finance esti-
mates the unfunded liability at $80 bil-
lion, while the pension system itself esti-
mates it is $71 billion. Perez and Bonta
cited the lower figure Wednesday.

A 49-year-old South San Francisco
woman who participated in a brutal 2008
crowbar attack that left a 78-year-old Daly
City woman blinded likely faces six
months in jail after a judge drastically
reduced a four-year prison offer that had
been on the table for the last two years.
Ajudge could still sentence Joann Rivera
Ortiz to more than six months in jail at a
March hearing but warned her she cannot
withdraw the no contest plea to residential
We were extremely disappointed in the
resolution, said District
Attorney Steve
Ortiz is not accused of
personally assaulting the
victim in the case but
prosecutors say she tried
luring her away from
home so accomplices
could burglarize it. She
was also tied to a Pacica
burglary the previous month.
In the assault case, Ortiz reportedly called
the victim using a cellphone and said she
was a Pan-American agent who needed to
know if she would be home to receive a
package around 3 p.m. Jan. 12, 2008. The
suspicious woman called her children who
instructed her not to answer the door if any-
body knocked.
Accomplice Jose Perez-Gonzalez, 33, of
South San Francisco went to the Serramonte
neighborhood home and used a crowbar to
pry open the houses rear glass sliding door.
After encountering the home owner, Perez-
Gonzalez beat her in the head with the bar

the silent alarm, and in a getaway car driven
by Juan Carlos Cuellar.

and found the semi-conscious victim and

SACRAMENTO The California
Supreme Court on Wednesday transferred a
legal appeal over the states high-speed rail
project to a state appellate court, declining
to take up the case directly as Gov. Jerry
Browns administration had requested.
In doing so, it ordered an expedited hear-
ing at the appellate level.
Last week, the governors Department of
Finance, the state treasurer and the
California High-Speed Rail Authority peti-
tioned the court to overturn two lower-court
rulings that have stalled progress on the
$68 billion bullet train project. They said
rulings by a Sacramento County Superior
Court judge had crippled the governments
ability to function.
Judge Michael Kennys rulings late last
year have prevented the state from selling
$8.6 billion in voter-approved bonds need-
ed to nance the rst leg of construction in
the Central Valley. Kenny also ordered the
authority to rewrite its nancing plan to
explain how the state expects to pay for the
rst 300 miles of work, at a projected cost
of $31 billion.
The rulings came in lawsuits led by a
group of Central Valley landowners who
claimed the state failed to comply with the
promises made to voters when they
approved Proposition 1Ain 2008 to author-
ize selling the bonds.
Wednesdays notice says attorneys for the
landowners have until Monday to le briefs
in the case.

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

SACRAMENTO California would estab-
lish what supporters say are some of the
nations strictest standards for the use of
drone aircraft by government entities, under
a bill approved Wednesday by the state
AB1327 would require law enforcement
agencies to obtain warrants except in certain
emergencies. It also would require that gov-
ernment agencies notify the public when
they intend to use drones and that data col-
lected by unmanned aircraft be destroyed
within six months.
Public agencies would be prohibited from
arming their drones.
The measure passed, 59-5, and it now goes
to the Senate.
The future of aviation is unmanned, said
Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, R-Camarillo, an
intelligence ofcer in the U.S. Navy Reserve
who said he is familiar with drones from a
tour in Afghanistan. The Federal Aviation
Administration estimates that more than
30,000 drones will be ying over the United
States within the next two decades, helping
with everything from ghting criminals and
wildres to aiding farmers and perhaps deliv-
ering packages.
Law enforcement could use drones, under
the bill, if they obtain warrants based on
probable cause that a crime is being commit-
ted. They could bypass the warrant if there is
an imminent threat to life or to help emer-
gency workers deal with trafc accidents, to
inspect state parks and wilderness areas for
marijuana grows, or to detect wildres.
Other public agencies could use drones for
purposes other than to collect criminal
intelligence, but they would be barred from
sharing the data they collect with law
enforcement agencies without a warrant.
When warrants are obtained, the bill requires
law enforcement to minimize the collection
of images of people, places or things that
are not allowed by the warrant.
It also allows local governments to adopt
even stricter rules.
We need to establish clear rules and poli-
cies to protect the privacy of Californians,
said Assemblyman Steven Bradford, D-
Gardena, who co-authored the bipartisan bill
with Gorell and Assemblyman Bill Quirk, D-

WASHINGTON Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid says he opposes President
Barack Obamas proposal for legislation
letting Congress vote quick approval of
trade deals with other countries.
The Nevada Democrat spoke Wednesday.
A day earlier, Obama used his State of the
Union address to urge lawmakers to
approve such a measure, which would pre-
vent lawmakers from amending treaties.
The president says increasing trade with
Europe and Asia will boost sales of U.S.
products and protect American jobs.
Reid told reporters he opposes so-called
fast-track legislation and that the White
House knows it. Reid said lawmakers
should not push this now, a comment that
suggests the measure will go nowhere

PHOENIX For a few moments at least,
there were no politics in the State of the
Union address. It was just Sgt. 1st Class Cory
Remsburg, a severely wounded Army Ranger,
up there in the balcony overlooking the
House chamber.
His left hand was curled in a brace, a large
scar visible on the right side of his head.
Like the Army he loves, like the America
he serves, Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg
never gives up and he does not quit,
President Barack Obama said.
Remsburg, a 30-year-old recipient of the
Bronze Star and Purple Heart who had served
10 deployments and now has limited move-
ment on his left side and is blind in one eye,
then rose, his father, Craig, wrapping an arm
around his sons back for support.
Remsburg ashed a thumbs-up as the
throngs of lawmakers below gave him a near-
ly 2-minute standing ovation, a scene that
became one of the most emotional moments
in presidential speeches in decades. He patted
his right hand on his chest, in thanks.
The president used the moment to help draw
attention to the sacrices and stories of
wounded veterans who try each day to rebuild
bodies and minds torn apart by war. It was
also a glimpse into a relationship between a
soldier and the commander in chief.
His story, however, was what drew the most
Friends recalled Remsburg as affable and a
erce warrior who was always concerned
about his fellow soldiers. Master Sgt. Quint
Pospisil has known Remsburg since 2003.
He described him as the kind of guy everyone
liked, and often was the center of attention.
Usually when he was in a room, he was the
one talking, Pospisil said.
In 2006, they were part of the same Army
Ranger company deployed to Iraq. Remsburg
was a squad leader, Pospisil a platoon ser-
geant. Pospisil said as a leader, Remsburg had
the respect of everyone who served under
Its not like they respected him just
because he was a buddy-buddy guy. He
enforced standards, Pospisil said. One of
the big takeaways I have of him was that he
was always concerned about the safety of his
In October 2009, a roadside bomb in
Afghanistan killed one soldier and severely
wounded Remsburg and several others.
Shrapnel from the blast went into
Remsburgs head, leaving him with brain
damage and partial paralysis. It was his 10th
deployment, not unusual for Rangers who
tend to be deployed more often but on shorter
stints in war zones.
Before Tuesday night, Obama met with
Remsburg three times, the rst in France
when Remsburg was part of an Army Ranger
group selected to re-enact a parachute jump in
commemoration of the 65th anniversary of
the World War II D-Day landings.
About a year later, Obama was visiting a
military hospital in Maryland where
Remsburg was sent for surgery when the pres-
ident noticed a photograph on a wall of him-
self and a strapping, uniformed Ramsburg
taken back in Normandy.

WASHINGTON After years of setbacks, a
nearly $100 billion-a-year compromise farm
bill cleared the House on Wednesday despite
strong opposition from conservatives who
sought a bigger cut in food stamps.
The ve-year bill, which preserves gener-
ous crop subsidies, heads to the Senate, where
approval seems certain. The White House
said President Barack Obama would sign it.
The measure, which the House approved
251-166, had backing from the Republican
leadership team, even though it makes small-
er cuts to food stamps than they would have
liked. After wavering for several years, the
GOP leaders were seeking to put the long-
stalled bill behind them and build on the suc-
cess of a bipartisan budget passed earlier this
month. Leaders in both parties also were
hoping to bolster rural candidates in this
years midterm elections.
House Speaker John Boehner did not cast a
vote on the bill, a commonplace practice for
a speaker, but he had issued a statement
Monday saying it was worthy of the Houses
support. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-
Calif., voted for the bill despite concerns
from some in her caucus that the bill cut too
much from the food stamp program.
The bill ultimately would cut about $800
million a year from the $80 billion-a-year
food stamp program, or around 1 percent. The
House had sought a 5 percent cut.
The legislation also would continue to
heavily subsidize major crops for the
nations farmers while eliminating some sub-
sidies and shifting them toward more politi-
cally defensible insurance programs.
House Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas,
R-Okla., called the compromise a miracle
after trying to get the bill passed for almost
three years. An early version of the legisla-
tion was defeated on the House oor last June
after conservatives said the food stamp cuts
were too modest and liberal Democrats said
they were too deep. The House later passed a
bill with a higher, $4 billion cut, arguing at
the time that the program had spiraled out of
control after costs doubled in the last ve
years. But cuts that high were ultimately not
possible after the Senate balked and the
White House threatened a veto. The Senate
had sought a cut of $400 million annually.
Many House conservatives still voted
against the bill 63 Republicans opposed
it, one more than in June.
One of those conservative opponents was
Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind. It spends
money we simply dont have, he said.
But 89 Democrats supported it, bolstered
by the lower cut in food stamps. The top
Democrat on the agriculture panel,
Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson, said he also
enticed some of his colleagues with more
money for fruit, vegetable and organic pro-

tate of the Union addresses are
about big ambitions, and Tuesday
nights didnt disappoint. Barack
Obamas many priorities job creation,
middle-class earnings, infrastructure spend-
ing and all the others are the unnished
business of a president aware (and no doubt
uneasy) that, in three years, he belongs to
How many of those aspirations can he
achieve? Of 24 proposals in last years
address, Washington Post fact-checkers
rate ve as accomplished, four as partially
complete and 15 notably gun control,
immigration reform and a minimum wage
hike as dead letters. And at rst glance,
this years prognosis wouldnt be that
The Obamacare rollout soured many
Americans on government-as-change-
agent. Twitchy members of Congress avoid
bold votes in election years. And Obamas
approval ratings have tumbled. From the
Posts report on its new poll with ABC
News: Just 37 percent (of respondents)
say they have either a good amount or a
great deal of condence in the president to
make the right decisions for the countrys
future, while 63 percent say they do not.
Those numbers are the mirror image of
what they were when he was sworn into
ofce in 2009. Ouch.
Tuesday night, Obama didnt dwell on his
lost 2013. There was an oblique nod to his
gridlock with Congress last year: Lets
make this a year of action. The subtext:
He has to wonder whether, if his signature
health overhaul doesnt succeed, his presi-
dency totals one year of managing through
a nancial crisis, followed by a biblical
seven years of lean.
Thats why his staffers have been broad-
casting the message that Obama will try to
circumvent Congress by marshaling his
powers of ofce. Presidents of both parties
have done that although its often a frus-
trating way to rule: Congress can thwart (or
refuse to fund) executive orders that lack
the force of law. And subsequent presidents
can undo those orders as breezily as they
were written.
Listening to Obama, though, we heard
two takeaways that should be his realistic
agenda before the acceleration of presiden-
tial campaigning in 2015 certies his
lame-duckery. The point isnt that he can
get Congress to do his bidding; he cannot.
On these two issues, though, he can help
Republicans and Democrats realize that its
in their best interests to do as he asks.
Thats a spectacularly accurate if too lim-
ited prediction of all that a reform to federal
taxes and transfer programs could deliver.
Even before his presidency began, Obama
was saying the right things about the
unsustainability of entitlement benets; in
budget wrangles with Republicans he has
agreed to Medicare reforms.
Imagine the potential power of a presi-
dent wholl never run again gathering his
economic priorities into one package. A
path to debt reduction, encouragements to
hire more workers, elimination of tax
deductions and credits that tend to benet
the wealthy, incentives to drive new
growth: In one afternoon, Obamas policy
team could draft an omnibus plan for
nancing federal operations, expanding
the nations workforce and assuring that
todays benets will exist for tomorrows
retirees. Stable and lower tax rates, paid for
by scaling back those runaway deductions
and credits, would benet individuals and
employers alike.
During Obamas presidency, efforts at a
Go Big nance deal always have opped.
Now, as a second-termer with goals he
wants to accomplish, hes liberated. He can
bundle his proposals in bows appealing to
both parties. Granted, with Obama inclined
to govern by executive order rather than
joust with Congress, this wouldnt be easy.
But it could be done. Democrats and
Republicans proved that with their tax
mega package late in Ronald Reagans
Immigration reform, coupled with a res-
cue of federal nances and entitlement pro-
grams? Good for Obama, good for the his-
torians wholl grade him and good for
the future of America.
Petes Harbor
After many months of consideration of
the Petes Harbor Project, we are concerned
by the amount of time that the develop-
ment process is taking. Under equal protec-
tion of the law, it seems to us that there are
two questions to ask: Does the project t
the requirements required for approval as
stated in the applicable laws, ordinances
and plans for our community? Is it a quality
development reecting environmental
responsibilities, the adjustments requested
and the goals of our city? If the answer to
both questions is yes, we urge the Redwood
City Planning Commission and the City
Council to act accordingly.

The Canada goose problem
Having read the article about the Canada
Goose problem facing Foster City (Fowl
foul: Foster City struggles with managing
geese and their ever-present feces in the
Jan. 27 issue of the Daily Journal, I noticed
a couple of inaccuracies in the article.
Canada geese are not a federally protected
endangered species. California has a resi-
dent Canada goose hunting season that
runs for ve days prior to the regular duck
season to help deal with the problem of
resident geese. The lack of areas to access
hunting near these populations of geese
has not done much to mitigate or thin the
population. The limit is six Canada geese
during this period. The geese may be hunt-
ed throughout the remainder of the regular
season with a set limit depending on the
zone hunted.
Other states are having similar problems
with Canada geese as their population has
exploded in urban areas without controlled
hunting. Some states have early seasons
on the geese also and numerous cities have
allowed controlled hunting on large parks
and golf courses to control the geese. The
areas are closed to the public during the
hunts and hunters are strictly controlled to
provide safety to surrounding residents and
San Mateo County is one of the listed
counties in California where no permit is
needed to destroy nests and eggs to help
control the population. Controlled hunting
would be another method to thin the popu-
lation but I doubt if any cities around the
Bay would ever allow it. The cities around
the Bay have sort of brought the problem
onto themselves with water, food and shel-
ter available to the geese, thus providing
the perfect habitat for an expanded resident
goose population.

Two takeaways from the State of the Union
Other voices
To dye for

teeny tiny Chihuahua bundle of
fur and preciousness, was found
injured on an East Palo Alto street and, after
a bit of tender care, was made available for
adoption, the Peninsula Humane Society
announced last
News traveled
fast and before
one could yell
stop the press-
es, Candy was
spoken for. Its no
surprise. Candy

Candys tale
pulled at the heart
strings. Candy
was ... pink?
Seems on top of
the 2-month-old girls other challenges, she
also had to overcome an unfortunate bubble

of her original owner. The beauty school
addition to Candys natural cuteness implies
someone once cared for her, although
frankly it is odd nobody ever reported her
missing or contacted PHS for a reunion after
the avalanche of news stories about the so-
called mystery puppy.
Then again, the fact Candy is pink if
not forever than certainly for the foreseeable
future as the dye fades and fur sheds makes
me think perhaps she is better off in the
hands of somebody who realizes dogs are
not meant to be color coordinated with pedi-
cures, handbags and mood. Dogs are not
meant to be airbrushed into resembling lions
and tigers and bears, oh my. The point is to
be tickled pink over a dog. Dont let the dog
actually be pink.
Yet there are plenty of people who would
put me in the proverbial dog house for say-
ing so. Salons cater to specialized pet dos
involving color and cuts akin to Vanilla
Ices shaved eyebrow heyday. Online sites
sell fur-specic dye kits. Love may be color-
blind but puppy love seems to be a whole
different animal.
Granted, dying the fur only seems to hurt
the dogs ego rather than its health. Still.

plenty to dislike on Wednesday.

Currencies including the Turkish

stem the declines by raising interest

If the central banks out there con-
tinue to hike interest rates, they are
going to destroy economic activity,
said Peter Cardillo, chief market
economist at Rockwell Global
Capital. That will impact the global
economy as well.

Business brief

NEW YORK Mobile advertising
accounted for more than half of
Facebooks total ad revenue in the nal
quarter of last year, a sign that the
social network born a decade ago in the
desktop computer era is succeeding in
its goal of being mobile rst.
Facebooks earnings and revenue
handily surpassed Wall Streets expec-
tations for the third quarter in a row as
it further expands the number of users
and the amount of money it makes on
mobile ads.
If 2012 was the year where we
turned our core product into a mobile
product, then 2013 was the year we
where we turned our business into a
mobile business, CEO Mark
Zuckerberg said in a conference call
with analysts. I expect 2014 will be
the year where we begin to deliver new

Facebook Inc. said Wednesday that
it earned $523 million, or 20 cents
per share, in the October-December
quarter. Thats up from $64 million,
or 3 cents per share, a year earlier.
Adjusted earnings were $780 million,
or 31 cents per share, in the latest
quarter, 4 cents ahead of analysts
Revenue grew 63 percent to $2.59

on average, had expected revenue of

Fed to reduce pace of bond
buying by another $10B
By Martin Crutsinger
WASHINGTON Given the U.S. economys growing
strength, the Federal Reserve pushed ahead Wednesday with
a plan to shrink its bond-buying program, even though the
prospect of reduced stimulus and higher interest rates has
rattled global markets.
The central bank said it will cut its monthly bond pur-
chases starting in February by $10 billion to $65 billion. It
also reafrmed a plan to keep short-term rates at record lows
to try to reassure investors that it will keep supporting an
economy thats stronger than at any point since the reces-
sion yet remains less than fully healthy.
The Feds decision came in a statement after the nal pol-
icy meeting of Ben Bernanke, who will step down Friday
after eight years as chairman. He will be succeeded by Vice
Chair Janet Yellen.
Most economists expect that under Yellen, the Fed will
announce a string of $10 billion monthly reductions in
bond purchases at each meeting this year, concluding with a
nal $15 billion cut in December. Still, if the American
economy were to falter, the Fed has stressed that it might
suspend its pullback in bond buying so it could keep aggres-
sively holding down long-term loan rates.
Many global investors fear that reduced Fed bond buying
will raise U.S. interest rates and cause investors to move
money out of emerging markets and into the United States
for higher returns. Currency values in emerging economies
have fallen over that concern.
In response, central banks in emerging economies, from
India to Turkey to South Africa, have been acting to counter
any damage from the Feds pullback and the prospect of
higher U.S. rates.

The Peninsula Athletic League boys soc-
cer schedule makers pegged the last game of
the rst round of league play as rivalry day.
So not only were emotions already high
when Woodside traveled to rival Menlo-
Atherton, but it matched the top two teams
in the PALs Bay Division.
Both teams experienced the highs and
lows that come with a ercely competitive
match and, when the nal whistle blew, both
were satised with the outcome: A2-2 draw.
It was a roller-coaster type game, said
M-Acoach Jacob Pickard. I think a draw is
a fair result.
Woodside came into the match unbeaten in
league play and three points clear of second-
place M-A. The Wildcats still have not lost
in league, but the Bears inched closer, clos-
ing the gap with Woodside to just two
Were still top position, said Woodside
coach Darrell Ringman.
Early on, it appeared M-A(4-1-2 PALBay)
would pull even in the standings. Off the
opening kickoff, a long ball was sent over
the Woodside defense. Elvis Abarca split two
defenders to run onto the ball and, as he
entered the penalty box, he was taken down,
earning a penalty kick. Jorge Lopez stepped
up and calmly placed his shot into the right
corner of the net for a 1-0 Bears lead just one
minute into the rst half.
For a competitive soccer team, it can take
the winds out of your sails giving up a penal-
ty kick less than five minutes into the
game, Ringman said. Give my team credit.
They had the wherewithal to keep pushing,
keep pushing.
Rivals M-A, Woodside battle to draw
By Julio Lara
Apparently, weve been getting the cliche
wrong all along actually, its not how
you nish games that matters, but how you
start them.
Consider that in Thursdays gigantic mid-
season battle between 6-0 Mills and 6-0
Hillsdale, the Vikings did not knock down a
single eld goal the entire fourth quarter and
the only two points they scored were on a
pair of free throws with less than minutes
left in the game.
And yet, it was Mills that landed the rst
big blow in the Peninsula Athletic Leagues
race for South Division supremacy, beating
Hillsdale 39-33. Mills led by as many as 16
points with a little less than ve minutes
left in the third quarter, but somehow only
managed one more eld goal the rest of the
way and still came away with the win that
now has them a full game ahead of the
Knights in the standings.
We knew they werent going to stop
playing, said Mills head coach Dave
Matsu. We just ran out of gas and got really
tired at that end thats probably my fault.
But, Hillsdale is a great team. Theyre well
coached. Our fourth quarter was bad, but we
did some great things in the rst three to
come away with the win.
As the third quarter wore on, it looked like
Mills would completely run away with the
victory, actually. And were it not for the fact
that the new home gymnasium rims are still
getting used to their new owners, there is no
reason to believe Mills shouldnt have won
Thursdays game by double digits.
Through the initial two quarters, and
despite shooting just 6-of-21 from the oor
in the half, Hillsdale hung in with the
Vikings. They were only down ve after one
and got to within four behind a couple of
Emily Nepomuceno 3-pointers.
But closing buckets by Taylor Cormier
and Madison Sui pushed the lead at recess to
eight points for Mills.
The third quarter, at least the initial six
minutes or so, belonged completely to the
Our defense was stiing, Matsu said. It
was tenacious. We came in averaging about

Last season, Skyline baseball manager
Dino Nomicos looked over his players faces
before the rst pitch of the year was thrown
and told them the truth.
Chances were, the Trojans were going to
take them bumps.
And Nomicos was right. Skyline struggled,
limping to a 12-24 nish and a third straight
season without a trip to the CCCAAplayoffs
this after ve consecutive years of making
it to the big dance.
But while he had to be the bearer of bad news
to last years Trojans, Nomicos also reminded
them those 2013 lumps would pay dividends
in 2014. And by the way Nomicos talked
about the prospects of the new season, you
get the sense that whole light at the end of a
tunnel type speech he gave his players a year
ago wasnt baloney.
Im excited about this team, Nomicos
said. I havent coached a team like this is
three or four years, where everyone is on the
same page. Its a good group and itll be a
tough group to walk away from at the end of
year because we already have so much emotion
invested in each other. No question, I think
were strong in every facet of the game.
Aglance at the 2014 roster for Skyline can
make a believer out of anyone. Once again,
Nomicos has managed to ll his roster with a
whos-who of local star talent. That, com-
bined with 12 returners on this years team,
and its not far-fetched to believe that the
three-year playoff drought for the Trojans
might be over.
But for that to happen, those players whose
names used to dominate the high school head-
lines must translate over to the community
college game.
Skyline hopes lumps taken in 2013 will pay off in 2014
ve resigned myself to the fact Ill
never afford that Porsche Ive
always wanted to satiate the mid-life
crisis I may or may be experiencing.
I did do something recently, however,
that may or may not be a good idea: I
bought a skateboard. The main reason is
because my daughter got a skateboard for
Christmas and I think it may be easy to
teach her how to skate by showing
instead of telling.
The underlying truth is, Ive been
thinking about getting a skateboard for a
while, or take up surng or do something
from my youth that I
stopped doing many
years ago.
The only reason I
chose skateboarding
is Im more afraid of
sharks than I am
I used to skate and
bodyboard a lot in
my early to late
teens, which was fol-
lowed by a strong
ski desire in my
early to mid-20s,
which coincided with a lot of time on a
So Ive been involved with what some
would label extreme sports. I never got
really good at any of them (my best sport
was probably skiing), but I was good
enough to get on a board, maintain my
balance and enjoy myself.
For some reason, Ive always been fas-
cinated with these board sports. At one
point during my skateboarding phase, we
built a six-foot tall quarterpipe ramp and
spent hours riding to the top of that
thing, doing a kickturn at the top and
coming back down. We eventually started
doing some rockers on the coping, a cou-
ple quick grinds. Nothing major though.
I continued to follow the scene from
afar and always wished to go back and do
those things again.

myself or break something although

Mode was Least Mode again.
Seattle Seahawks running back
Marshawn Lynch abruptly ended
his media availability again
walking away from a throng of
reporters while escorted by a mem-
ber of the New Jersey State Police
on Wednesday after about 7 uncom-
fortable minutes in which he
answered just a few questions.
The elusive Lynch, who created a
stir at media day Tuesday by talk-
ing for only 6 1/2 minutes, writhed
in his seat and leaned his head back
at times. A few dozen reporters,
lined up as much as ve deep, tried
to ask questions during the play-
ers 45-minute availability at the
team hotel.
I really dont have too much to
say, boss, Lynch said in a tone
barely above a

ly dont. I
appreciate it,
but I dont get

so I wont get

Earlier this
month, Lynch was fined $50,000
for not cooperating with the
Seattle media. The NFL put that
fine on hold, saying it would be
rescinded if he complied with
media obligations. During media
day, Lynch spoke for 6 1/2 min-
utes before leaving, then return-
ing to speak to Deion Sanders for
NFL Network, to the Seahawks
website, and to Armed Forces
Network and acknowledged he
was trying to avoid being fined
by the league for not meeting his
media requirements.

Players are required to partici-

His comments of the past two

extremely disappointed in the
lack of meaningful access to
Lynch at media day. The PFWA
added that several long-standing

appalled by Mr. Lynchs conduct
and refusal to answer any ques-

Players have clauses in their

Fullback Michael Robinson,
one of Lynchs buddies who was
seated to his left, even poked fun at
the situation by asking Lynch a
question of his own.
What do you think of your full-
back? Robinson said, laughing.
Is he a pretty cool brother?
No, Lynch responded.
What? Robinson asked incred-
No, Lynch repeated.
Thats messed up, a smiling
Robinson said. We went to dinner
last night and everything, man.
After Lynch was short with his
answers to a few questions,
Robinson moved the microphone
in front of himself and began
answering questions for Lynch.
Im going to slide up in this
thing, Robinson said with a
smile, and break up the monoto-
ny a little bit. Uhh, Marshawn
aint going to try to say nothing
to you guys, so you can direct your
questions toward me.
Robinson used the running

end each sentence.

was feeling.
He just wants to play ball,

Robinson was then asked how he
would dene Beast Mode.

What sort of havoc would a big

footballs supposed to be played.
Players on both teams have

they dont regularly brace for the

EDMONTON Ben Scrivens set an NHL
record for saves in a regular-season shutout
with 59 in a spectacular performance that
helped the Edmonton Oilers beat the San
Jose Sharks 3-0 Wednesday night.
Scrivens topped the previous mark set by
Phoenixs Mike Smith, who stopped 54
shots in a victory over Columbus on April
3, 2012.
The Sharks matched the record for shots
against the Oilers, accomplished by the
New York Rangers in a 4-3 loss in 1993.
This time, the recently acquired Scrivens
turned away all 59 as Edmonton won its
third straight.
Justin Schultz, Jordan Eberle and Taylor
Hall scored for Edmonton.
Obtained from Los Angeles in a trade Jan.
15, Scrivens got in front of point-blank
shots, close-in deflections, goalmouth
scrambles and rebounds his defensemen
failed to cover.
Scrivens stopped 20 shots in the rst, 22
in the second and 17 in the third.
Three of his best stops in the rst period
came on a San Jose power play when he got
a pad on Dan Boyles slap shot from the
hash marks, Jason Demers backhand on a
rebound and Patrick Marleaus deflection
from about ve feet in front.
Defenseman Justin Schultz put the Oilers
in front with a long shot at 10:51 of the
rst. His harmless looking wrist shot hit a
player in front and eluded the grasp of San
Jose goaltender Antti Niemi.
The Sharks rang two shots off the goal-
post in the second and forced Scrivens to be
even better than he was in the rst period.
Scrivens ashed his glove to make two
sparkling stops off Bracken Kearns and
Demers, seconds apart early in the period.
He got a well-deserved standing ovation late
in the period after stopping Marleau twice
once on a quick breakaway and then
making his 41st and 42nd saves on a goal-
mouth scramble. He got several standing
ovations in the third.
The Sharks, whose previous high for
shots on goal was 57, continued their dom-
ination in the third period but couldnt nd a
way to put the puck in the net.
Hall scored six minutes into the period to
nish off a 2-on-1 break with Eberle and
then fed Eberle for the third goal with just
over a minute remaining. Hall nished with
three points.

STANFORD Nick Johnson kept
Arizonas perfect season going for another
game, hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 51
seconds left and a pair of free throws with
5.8 seconds to go as the top-ranked
Wildcats survived for a 60-57 victory over
Stanford on Wednesday night for their
school-record 21st straight win.
After Johnson hit a jumper in the middle
of the key with 2:36 remaining to make it
55-53, Dwight Powell answered on a base-
line drive with 1:21 to go before Johnson
delivered once more.
Johnson nished with 16 points, ve
rebounds and four assists and T. J .
McConnell added 11 points, eight rebounds
and four assists for Arizona (21-0, 8-0 Pac-
12), off to the programs best start in con-
ference play in more than a decade.
Arizona is one of three unbeaten teams
left in Division I basketball, joining No. 2
Syracuse, which also won Wednesday night.
Fourth-ranked Wichita State hasnt lost
Powell and Josh Huestis each scored 13
points for Stanford (13-7, 4-4), which out-
shot Arizona 38 percent to 36 percent.
Johnson missed a free throw with 28 sec-
onds left and Stanford called timeout.
Huestis missed a 3 from the left wing and
Aaron Gordon secured the rebound, but he
also missed a free throw giving the Cardinal
one nal shot.
Chasson Randle missed a long 3 just
before the nal buzzer for Stanford, which
went cold down the stretch and were held
scoreless for nearly nine minutes.
After a 3-pointer by Huestis with 10:03
reamining, Stanford didnt score again until
Powells layin at 1:21 and Powell missed
a pair of free throws at 4:36 that would have
put his team ahead.
Arizona, ranked No. 1 for a school-record
eighth consecutive week, overcame a slow
start on the way to an eighth straight win
against Stanford.
The Cardinal beat two top-25 teams
already with victories at then-No. 10
Connecticut and at then-No. 17 Oregon ear-
lier this month.
But not this time given their struggles in
the waning moments at Maples Pavilion,
which hosted a No. 1 mens team for the rst
time since losing 72-69 to Arizona on
March 1, 2003.
Arizona missed two shots both by
Johnson from close range in the opening
minute and began the game 1 for 9 against a
smothering Stanford man-to-man defense
that made it tough for the Wildcats to get
good looks. Stanford also took a quick 7-3
rebounding advantage.
In a sloppy start, Arizona was whistled for
a pair of offensive fouls, Aaron Gordon air-
balled a 3-point try, while Rondae Hollis-
Jefferson missed a pair of free throws at the
14:11 mark.
The Wildcats had a large contingent of
fans in the crowd cheering U of A! U of A!
McConnells jumper at 10:58 gave
Arizona its rst lead of the opening half.
Gordon, from nearby San Jose, scored his
rst points midway through the half and
Arizona missed four of its initial ve 3-
point attempts.
Stanford makes Arizona sweat, but Wildcats stay unbeaten

The Bears chances took a big hit, however,
when Abarca went to the sidelines late in the
rst half with what Pickard feared is a serious
knee injury.
Pickard said the loss from the injury was
more than just losing what Abarca can do with
the ball at his feet. He said as a senior, Abarca
brings a calming presence to Pickards young
Players like him are critical, Pickard said.
Lopez especially missed Abarca, whose pin-
point passes to the ank allowed Lopez to use
his speed to beat the defense. Without Abarca,
Lopez disappeared for much of the second half.
M-Amade that goal stand up until halftime,
but Woodside (5-0-2, 9-2-3) wasted little time
in tying things up early in the second half.
Four minutes into the second stanza, the
Wildcats earned a free kick just outside the M-
A penalty box. Kevin Amaya chipped a ball
into the Bears penalty box, where it found the
head of Eduardo Guerrero, who nodded it home
to tie the game at 1.
Six minutes later, Woodside had the lead.
Again off a set piece, a free kick from about 21
yards, defender Salvador Herrera stepped up and
bent his shot around the wall and into the upper
right corner for a cracker of a goal.
This team has a lot of heart, Ringman said,
adding it was the rst time in league play his
team has trailed.
From that point on, Woodside dominated
possession, as the Bears struggled to nd any
rhythm offensively.
It looked hopeless at times in the second
half, Pickard said.
Over the nal 10 minutes, however, M-A
started to nd its form and began to apply pres-
sure on the Woodside goal. The Bears had a
couple of deections in front of the goal saved,
before Lopez came to the rescue in the nal
M-A earned a free kick about 25 yards out
near the left sideline in the 78th minute. Lopez

And that all begins on the mound where
Skyline is led by a trio of promising starters
or as Nomicos said, thats two more
starters than weve had in recent years.
Leading the charge is former Mills product and
preseason All-NorCal right-hander Bryan
Hidalgo. In 10 starts last year, Hidalgo threw
over 60 innings, won three games and
punched out 52. Hell be complemented nice-
ly by College of San Mateo transfer and for-
mer Carlmont Scot Daniel Madigan who
can be downright lthy when hes on.
Unfortunately for him, he was limited to just
four games last year. That certainly wont be
the case in 2014.
The third starter is the reigning Daily
Journal Male Athlete of the Year and former
Aragon Don Aldo Severson.
Hes been a surprise for us, Nomicos said.
Hes really matured in the last three months.
Physically, hes gotten better and better. Hes
on our radar.
While those three will be expected to eat up
innings, just as important is the Skyline
bullpen. Sophomore reliever Danny Morales,
formerly of Serra, brings experience to the
back end of that pitching staff. Also huge will
be the reigning PAL Bay Division pitcher of
the year Thomas Cauleld the left-hander
highlights a total of six Burlingame recruits
that will suit up for Nomicos.
Theyve bought in to the Skyline way,
Nomicos said. This is a really physical team
very like the old Skyline teams weve had.
These guys are dirtbags very blue collar.
They just want to play and compete. We got a
good nucleus.
The incoming offensive talented high-
lighted by the bat of former Hillsdale Knight
Armando Fajardo is very exciting to
Nomicos and a program that hit just .234 last
year. Fajardo, Michael Franco and Phil
Cauleld must look to mesh with players like
Joey Carney (Mills), Lance Montano, and
Lucciano Molina (Capuchino), who all split
time at rst base last season, and are expected
to provide the sophomore leadership essen-
tial to any successful community college
team. Carney moves to the outeld and
Molina will do the catching.
The key is that theyve bought in,
Nomicos said. You can have a bunch of super-
stars on the team, but not win anything. We
dont have any superstars but we have guys
that work well as a unit.
As mentioned, 26 of the 28 Skyline players
can be considered local products. Still, look
out for Nobuaki Suzuki, a freshman second
baseman from Japan.
We got really lucky with him, Nomicos
said. That was a big pick up.
Also, Nomicos is expecting great things
from Franco, who will roam centereld and bat
Hes turned into quite the college baseball
player, Nomicos said.
The kids that have been through this have
really taken the freshman under their wings,
Nomicos said. And thats why everyone has
bought in. At the end of the day, these guys
really want to win.

Maurice Petty completes
Petty clan in Hall of Fame
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Dale Jarrett had no
idea what crazy things Blake Shelton might
say as the country music star inducted him into
the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
It could have gone in a lot of different direc-
tions, Jarrett said of Sheltons induction
Shelton read a handwritten and heartfelt
speech about his love of racing, inherited
through his late father, who as his health
declined was so thrilled that his son got to
hang with some of NASCARs biggest stars.
Jarrett on occasion spoke to Sheltons
father on the phone.
I believe it was little things like that that
kept my dad happy those last few years,
Shelton said. And even though I know he was
beyond proud of my accomplishments in
music, he just couldnt get over the fact that I
got to spend time with guys like Clint Bowyer
and Elliott Sadler, and most of all, Dale
It set the tone for Jarretts emotional induc-
tion. He joined his father, Ned, as just the sec-
ond father-son combination with NASCAR
championships inducted into the Hall.
The Jarretts join Lee and Richard Petty.
Athree-time Daytona 500 winner, two-time
Brickyard winner and the 1999 Cup champion,
Jarrett was emotional the entire time.
But he had to choke back tears when it came
time to address his father.
My dad has been everything a son would
want his father to be successful, a leader by
example, a teacher you can believe in, and
always there to support me, Jarrett said. My
dad was and still is today my hero. Thats what
really makes this night so very special: Im
joining my father in the NASCAR Hall of

than the air; each club gets to decide how
hot it wants to make them, the league said.
The seats generate heat in the area surround-
ing the benches, so even standing nearby
can help ght the freeze.
There also will be heated torpedo fans
on each sideline.
Football uniforms have short sleeves, and
only one of the 15 players interviewed for
this story, Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril,
said he would even consider wearing long
sleeves underneath to provide some protec-
tion Sunday.
Im a 315-pound man. The weather does-
nt bother me, Broncos defensive tackle
Sylvester Williams said, by way of explain-
ing why hed never go for the long-sleeved
Instead, players did offer up various other
options for nding warmth.
The remedies range from commonsense
solutions for when the temperature plunges,
such as wearing extra-thick jackets or
gloves on the sideline, to more far-ung
options such as spraying anti-perspirant on
feet to keep them dry and prevent sweat
from freezing. Even more far-flung:
Seattles Harwell said hes heard of players
putting cayenne pepper and baby powder on
their feet.
Many players said they will use some
combination of Vaseline and a product
called Warm Skin, described on the compa-
nys website as a unique barrier cream that
soothes and protects your skin, to seal up
pores and act as insulation.
At rst, I didnt think it would work, but
I was surprised that it really protected me
from the elements, especially from the wind
and everything. I felt good. I felt warm,
said Denver defensive tackle Sione Fua, who
sported a thick gray hoodie under his orange
jersey at his teams interview session
Wednesday, when the high was 25. It rubs
in pretty good, so its not like your skins
slick. The referees check for that, anyway,
so if youre too slick, they tell you to wipe
Broncos safety David Bruton said he start-
ed using creams on his arms before playing
in the cold during high school in
Miamisburg, Ohio.
My Dad suggested it. He was a truck driv-
er, and sometimes hed have to hook the
trailer up when it was blistering cold, like
when he would go to New York in the win-
ter, Bruton recalled. He would have thick
gloves and Vaseline on.
No matter how they try to weather
Sundays weather, players doubt the condi-
tions whatever they turn out to be will
inuence the games outcome.
Both teams are going to be prepared, and
they wont really care about it, Bruton
said. Hey, its the Super Bowl. Whos
going to care about the weather? And no one
is ever going to say, Such-and-such won,
and it was negative-2 degrees at the end of
the game.
Maybe so.
But at least one player is holding out hope
for a few akes.
I really got excited about the Super
Bowl, Broncos kick returner Trindon
Holliday said, thinking it was going to

shoulder roll and popped right back up. But I
know that is the exception. There are going
to be some bumps and bruises incurred along
the way, even with protective padding and a
helmet, which I have yet to buy. I think Ive
mentally steeled myself for the inevitable.
But Ive realized falling down was a common
occurrence as a kid. As you get older, you
nd its a foreign feeling to be tumbling to
the ground and, as anyone will tell me, it
takes a lot longer to heal at my age.
The good part is, Im nally able to buy
what I want, instead of having to settle for
what I could afford as a kid. The funny thing
is, prices on a skateboard deck, trucks and
wheels havent changed much since the mid-
80s, when I was in my skateboarding glory.
So when I went into the skateboard shop
and told them I was looking for a setup, the
only thing I knew for sure was I wanted
Independent trucks, the Cadillac of the skate
world. My next big decision was choosing
between an old-school shape or the mod-
ern popsicle board the ones that have
tails on both ends. Most of the boards in the
80s only had the kicktail and a at, wide
front. Those were the types of I rode and did-
nt know if it would make relearning the
sport easier.
Ultimately, I decided on the modern model,
but I got as big a board I could nd to give
me ultimate stability: a Creature model that
is 8.8 inches wide. This thing is massive.
Add my Independent 159 trucks, old-school,
soft urethane wheels (read: large) and this
board denitely has an old-school look to it.
In my minds eye, Im going to be that old
guy cruising around the park with his daugh-
ter, trying to get her to discover the stoke
skateboarding can be. Ill be cruisin and
carvin, no major aerials, just fast, uid
The reality is Ill probably spend very lit-
tle time in a skate park or on a ramp. Ill be
front of my house, just carving small turns
on the street, trying not to fall and maybe, if
I get up enough gumption, start doing some
rockers on the curb, maybe some grinds.
Its all I ever really did when I was a kid
and it was fun enough. Hopefully I can teach
that much to my daughter: to be able to safe-
ly ride a skateboard without being petried
of falling.
Whatever it takes to spend more fun time
with my her both for her and for me
Im willing to do. But lets face it, this could
ultimately end up being a bad idea.
As I told the guy at the skate shop: Keep
your eye out on Craigslist, because you may
see this board on there in a couple months.

MEXICO CITY The stunning and little-
understood annual migration of millions of
Monarch butteries to spend the winter in
Mexico is in danger of disappearing,
experts said Wednesday, after numbers
dropped to their lowest level since record-
keeping began in 1993.
Their report blamed the displacement of
the milkweed the species feeds on by genet-
ically modied crops and urban sprawl in
the United States, extreme weather trends
and the dramatic reduction of the butteries
habitat in Mexico due to illegal logging of
the trees they depend on for shelter.
After steep and steady declines in the pre-
vious three years, the black-and-orange but-
teries now cover only 1.65 acres (0.67
hectares) in the pine and r forests west of
Mexico City, compared to 2.93 acres (1.19
hectares) last year, said the report released
by the World Wildlife Fund, Mexicos
Environment Department and the Natural
Protected Areas Commission. They covered
more than 44.5 acres (18 hectares) at their
recorded peak in 1996.
Because the butteries clump together by
the thousands in trees, they are counted by
the area they cover.
While the Monarch is not in danger of
extinction, the decline in their population
now marks a statistical long-term trend and
can no longer be seen as a combination of
yearly or seasonal events, experts said.
The announcement followed on the heels
of the 20th anniversary of the North
American Free Trade Agreement, which saw
the United States, Mexico and Canada sign
environmental accords to protect migratory
species such as the Monarch. At the time,
the buttery was adopted as the symbol of
trilateral cooperation.
Twenty years after the signing of
NAFTA, the Monarch migration, the sym-
bol of the three countries cooperation, is at
serious risk of disappearing, said Omar
Vidal, the World Wildlife Fund director in
Lincoln Brower, a leading entomologist
at Sweet Briar College in Virginia, wrote
that the migration is denitely proving to
be an endangered biological phenomenon.
The main culprit, he wrote in an email,
is now genetically modified herbicide-
resistant corn and soybean crops and herbi-
cides in the USA, which leads to the
wholesale killing of the monarchs princi-
pal food plant, common milkweed.
While Mexico has made headway in reduc-
ing logging in the ofcially protected win-
ter reserve, that alone cannot save the
migration, wrote Karen Oberhauser, a pro-
fessor at the University of Minnesota. She
noted that studies indicate that the U.S.
Midwest is where most of the butteries
migrate from.

Councilmembers hope aligning city poli-

more economically successful downtown
that will generate revenue while maintain-
ing the citys quaint style its residents
It has the potential to provide Belmont
with a real downtown and a vibrant area
thats consistent with the village feel that
so many folks in Belmont want to see,
Mayor Warren Lieberman said.
However, the city is facing signicant
challenges in revamping downtown such as
fragmented parcel ownership, zoning
restrictions, needed infrastructure repairs,
community support and nancing, accord-
ing to a study prepared by the consulting
rm Strategic Economics.
One of the most important moves the city
can begin taking immediately is to reach
out the community and engage stakehold-
ers, said Dena Belzer, president of Strategic
The community is an integral part in
making change happen, Belzer said.
Reaching out to residents, business own-
ers and property developers is crucial if the
council expects to move through the
process expeditiously, Councilman Charles
Stone said.
I agree wholeheartedly with moving for-
ward as quickly as possible, Stone said.
[Weve got] to reach out to businesses and
get stakeholder buy-in.
As a small typically affluent city,
Belmont has a strong residential market-
place that, when located strategically, can
be used to build a successful downtown,
according to the study.
Councilman Eric Reed was in full support
of the recommendations and agreed intro-
ducing new residents correlates to introduc-
ing new shoppers.
Current zoning conditions in the area may
need to change to follow through with study
suggestions, said Community Development
Director Carlos de Melo.
To create a synergistic retail spot, the
council may need to be more exible by
zoning for more housing in the surrounding
area, de Melo said.
Parking in the area is currently spread out,
so Belzer recommended creating a centrally
located lot where people could park and
walk, thus encouraging people to frequent
surrounding businesses.
One of the more challenging aspects to
developing a downtown is nancing and g-
uring out how to leverage funds, de Melo
said. The city will be applying for the
$550,000 grant from San Mateo Countys
City/County Association of Governments,
however, its a competitive process, de
Melo said.
Even if funds are currently incomplete,
the city will still make substantial progress
by implementing Belmont Village Zoning
policies, Belzer said.
If you have a plan in place and keep mov-
ing forward, the funding will emerge,
Belzer said.
What the city is able to accomplish will
eventually be dictated by the market and
how developers and property owners
choose to act, de Melo said. Although the
city is still a long way from breaking
ground, the councils approval of the report
is getting the ball rolling, he said.
Were all hopeful its going to move
expeditiously. But the public process takes
time, and tonight was a great step, de Melo
Before specific policies and plans are
established, there will be months revolved
around approving environmental impact
reports, community outreach and public
hearings, de Melo said.
Councilmembers are cautiously excited to
see progress thats been years in the mak-
ing. The Belmont Village Zoning standards
create a specific blueprint that will be
detailed enough to facilitate the types of
development the city wants to see,
Lieberman said.
[This] doesnt create policy, it creates
the process to get there, Lieberman said. I
think weve got a very strong opportunity
not to change the character of the city, but
to enhance it.

The committee was called into question in
November 2013 when a vote on dissolving
the committee was pulled from the City
Councils agenda. The council first dis-
cussed the possibility of nixing the com-
mittee in early October because of lack of
productivity from the group, a number of
councilmembers said.
BID would afford them more say in a
commercial area in terms of banding togeth-
er to work on projects to upgrade the down-
town as well as bringing awareness, said
Mayor Wayne Lee. Theyre going to need
some encouragement from City Hall to
make the process of helping downtown be
more practical over political. ABID is not a
new concept, other cities like Burlingame
are doing this.
The committee has a lot of interest in
moving downtown forward in a positive
direction, said Councilwoman Anne
Theres a lot of passion [in the group],
said Oliva, who attended the committees

Third Avenue in San Mateo, he said. Only
adults are coming into downtown. ...
Downtown is your bread and butter.
The committee is intended to consist of
10 members who serve a term of four years
and may either reside or work in Millbrae.
The committee was established to guide the
implementation of the America Downtown
Action Agenda and advise the council on
downtown issues. Members may be reap-
pointed to additional terms and arent paid.
The committee has struggled to reach a quo-
rum because only eight of these seats are

NEWYORK From tablecloths to duvet
covers, iPhone cases to wallpaper and star-
tling calf-skin wall hangings, the ancient
Japanese resist-dying technique of shibori
has gone mainstream. Vera Wang, Ralph
Lauren, Eileen Fisher, Levis and innumer-
able ber artists are breathing new life into
the craft.
The stillness and beauty of it really cen-
ters me, said Oriana DiNella, who recently
launched her own Web-based shibori line,
including linen tableware, pillows and
throws and large leather wall hangings
all made to order and hand-dyed in organ-
ic indigo.
It feels like a rebellion against the fash-
ion movement, where everything seems so
fast and disposable, the New York-based
designer explained.
Shibori is slow. It takes time, and has
been around since about the 8th century.
The word comes from the Japanese shi-
boru, meaning to wring, squeeze or press.
The technique involves twisting, tying,
crumpling, stitching or folding fabric
usually silk or cotton in various ways,
transforming the two-dimensional material
into a sculptural, three-dimensional form.
This sculptural shape is then traditionally
dyed, originally using indigo, although a
huge variety of colors and dyes are now
used. Sometimes, the same fabric is then
twisted in some other way and then dyed
again. When the wrappings are removed,
the folds and creases where the fabric resis-
ted the dye form distinctive crinkled tex-
tures and patterns.
A sort of memory on cloth, Shibori
also encompasses Issey Miyakes revolu-
tionary pleated clothing, fulling and felt-
ing, and other methods of transforming nat-
ural fabrics into 3-D shapes.
The work of Hiroyuki Murase exemplies
both the 3-D possibilities of shibori and
the bridge between traditional and new.
Murase grew up in Arimatsu, Japan, where
shibori has been done using traditional
techniques for 400 years. Today, his array of
Luminaires lampshades and haute couture
fabrics, designed for the likes of Christian
Dior, are the cutting edge of modern shi-
Murases family company, Suzusan, was
founded there a century ago and has designed
shibori fabrics for Miyake and other
designers. Murase founded and is creative
director at a separate company by the same
name, Suzusan, in Dusseldorf, Germany.
But shibori is still most widely thought
of as a sort of tie-dyeing.
Todays incarnations are as different from

Slugs and snails are ravenous plant eaters
that leave behind slimy trails of destruction
as they glide through nurseries and lawns,
farm elds and gardens. Remedies abound,
but prevention is an effective way to start.
Remove any debris from the garden,
said James Dill, a pest management special-
ist with University of Maine Extension.
Straw, boards, leaves and stuff like that.
They provide the perfect hiding places for
slugs in the daytime. Then they come out at
night and do their damaging thing.
Slugs are essentially snails without
shells, Dill said. Sizes and colors are all
over the map but both can be very destruc-
Slugs and snails prefer feeding on soft-
leaved plants, although they will eat what-
ever is available.
Three or four years ago I would have said
strawberries, hostas and leaves, Dill said.
But when you see the damage (done) to
potatoes or tubers, you realize they can rasp
on anything.
Maine had a wet summer last year and
slugs hit the states potato crop hard.
Commercial growers reported 6 to 7 per-
cent of their crop was damaged, Dill said.
Slugs prefer cool, rainy climates where
they wont dry out. Snails, which can nd
relief from the heat by withdrawing into
their shells, are more adapted to dry cli-
Effective snail and slug management calls
for a combination of garden upkeep and
trapping. As for the most commonly used
homemade baits, however, put away the
saltshakers and leave the beer in a cooler,
said Robin Rosetta, an entomologist with
the Oregon State University Extension
Table salt can dry up the mollusks but it
also can build in the soil over time, damag-
ing plants, she said. Fermented sugar
water and yeast is cheaper than beer-baited
traps and just as functional for drowning
Commercial baits are toxic to snails and
slugs, but some varieties especially
those containing metaldehyde can be
harmful to children and pets.
The iron phosphate products work really
well, are generally less toxic than other
chemical controls, and several are organic,
Rosetta said.
Be prepared to reapply the baits since not
all slug and snail species are active at the
same time. Bait throughout the year or you
could see damage you didnt expect because
you didnt hit a particular group, Rosetta
Making your yard less hospitable to slugs
and snails is generally more effective than
using chemicals, she said.
watering plants in the morning when
snails and slugs are less active. Using drip
irrigation rather than sprinklers also makes
their habitat less appealing.
distancing plants that need more water
from those that are drought-tolerant. This
will limit areas that slugs call home,
Rosetta said.
weeding to eliminate moist places where
slugs nd cover.
handpicking slugs about two hours after
sunset. Handpicking is a viable method if
you have the time and a small area, Rosetta
using barriers to separate slugs and
snails from planting beds. Slugs and snails
are effective climbers so raised bed gardens
and containers arent good deterrents.
Placing copper strips around those sys-
tems, though, works as a repellent, and is
toxic to slugs and snails, Rosetta said.
Prevent garden slugfest

LOS ANGELES Every so often, Brandi
Koskie nds dozens of photos of her 3-year-
old daughter, Paisley, on her iPhone but
they arent ones Koskie has taken.
Therell be 90 pictures, sideways, of the
corner of her eye, her eyebrow, said
Koskie, who lives in Wichita, Kan. Shes
just tapping her way right into my phone.
The hidden photos, all shot by Paisley,
illustrate a phenomenon familiar to many
parents in todays tech-savvy world:
Toddlers love seles. Observant entrepre-
neurs have caught on to these image-
obsessed tots, marketing special apps that
make taking photos super-easy for little
ngers. You can even buy a pillow with a
smartphone pocket so toddlers can take
seles during diaper changes.
But toddlers arent the only ones taking
photos nonstop. Its not unusual for doting
parents to snap thousands of digital photos
by the time their child is 2. Todays toddlers
think nothing of nding their own biopic
stored in a device barely bigger than a deck
of cards.
While the barrage of images may keep
distant grandparents happy, its not yet
clear how such a steady diet of self-afrming
navel-gazing will affect members of the
rst truly smartphone generation. Tot-
centric snapshots can help build a healthy
self-image and boost childhood memories
when handled correctly, but shooting too
many photos or videos and playing them
back instantly for a demanding toddler
could backre, said Deborah Best, a profes-
sor of cognitive developmental psycholo-
gy at Wake Forest University in Winston-
Salem, N.C.
The instant gratification that smart-
phones provide todays toddlers is going
to be hard to overcome, she said. They
like things immediately, and they like it
short and quick. Its going to have an
impact on kids ability to wait for gratica-
tion. I cant see that it wont.
Julie Young, a Boston-based behavioral
analyst, has seen that rsthand. She was
recently helping her 3-year-old son record a
short birthday video for his cousin on her
iPhone when he stopped mid-sentence,
lunged for her phone and shouted, Mom,
can I see it?
Its caught on the end of the video. He
couldnt even wait to get the last sentence
out, said Young, who has two sons. The
second the phone comes out,
they stop, they look and
they attack.
Now Young and her
husband make their
sons wait to look at
a new video or photo
until after dinner or
until the other par-
ent comes home,
when everyone can
watch together. They
are careful to sit with
their kids when look-
ing at photos and have
adopted the phrase
practice patience as a
family mantra.
Its natural for tod-
dlers to be fascinated
with their own image
(think mirrors), and that
interest plays an impor-
tant developmental role
as they develop a sense of
self, child development
experts say. Watching a video
again and again can also help move
events from short- to long-term memory,
Best said.
But like any other fun thing kids get
obsessed with, too much of it can be bad.
Parents should make sure some photos
show the child with other family members
or friends. Parents can also sit with kids and
narrate the photo or video as if it were a bed-
time story.
When we read a book to a child, its the
same thing we do with these photos, Best
Koskie has noticed that cuddling in bed
on a lazy Saturday morning and swiping
through digital photos is one of Paisleys
favorite activities, and it seems to encour-
age her to ask about her place in the world.
They look at photos and videos together on
the iPad going back to Paisleys birth and
shell start to ask ques-
tions: When I was a
little tiny baby did
I do this? Did I do

email app EvoMail. Someday its all going
to come back to bite me or shes going to
come back and say, Wow, theres this
whole encyclopedia of my whole life.

Still, parents who remember the days
before iPhones wonder if their children will
ever really understand the power of a cher-
ished photograph. Jason Michael, a 32-
year-old father of two in Denver, has taken
so many photos of his 11-month-old son
and 4-year-old stepdaughter (about
4,000) that his iPhones memory
has lled up three times. His
stepdaughter takes plenty of
seles and loves to lm
herself singing favorite
songs, then watches the
videos again and again.
Michael worries that
all that visual noise may
keep them from treasur-
ing that one special
image that can evoke
memories decades later.
For him, its a photo of
himself as an 8-month-old
baby lying on a pink blanket
decorated with a
rabbit eating a

lows, baskets, iPhone cases, stationery,

poufs, said founder and creative director
Shanan Campanero, when asked about
the companys shibori-inspired offer-
i ngs.
Compared to the tie-dyes of a genera-
tion ago, she said, todays shi bori -
inspired works feature patterns that are
more careful, deliberate and traditional.
Vera Wangs collection is centered on
bedding, while Ralph Laurens features
swim trunks and clothing. Levis has
even come out with shibori-inspired
jeans. But while mass-produced items
lack the nuanced appeal of handcrafted
works, they bring a surprising touch of
texture and pizazz to the familiar.
For those inclined to take on do-it-
yourself projects, shibori has never been
more accessible. It can be done easily at
home using minimal equipment.
Urban Outfitters sells its own shibori
kits, and lessons are widely available
online, from basic for beginners to truly
advanced. Martha Stewart Living features
a project on its website using a standard
pressure cooker to make elegant shibori
at home.
Serious shibori artists and workshops
across the country and internationally
can be found through the Berkeley-based
World Shibori Network. With a member-
ship of dedicated artisans in Japan and
around the globe, it was founded in the
1990s because of fears that the tradition-
al craft would disappear.
Despite widespread interest in shibori
in the West, we are still concerned with
its survival in Japan, explained
Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada, the organiza-
t i ons president and co-founder.
Wada, author of Shibori and
Memory on Cloth (both published by
Kodansha), has taught and written about
shibori for more than 30 years, co-found-
ed Berkeleys Kasuri Dyeworks in 1975,
and helped introduce shibori to the
United States. Now, her focus is ensuring
its survival in Japan.
There used to be thousands and thou-
sands of artists working on this. Now
there are not so many people doing it
using traditional techniques, said Wada.
She said iPhone covers and poufs made
using digital techniques, far from being
silly novelties, are crucial to the future
of shibori, which holds little appeal to
most young Japanese.
Adapting shibori to something con-
temporary is the key to its survival, she
said. When the big designers come out
with it and young artists take it in new
directions, then more people here and in
Japan start to pay attention.

with the National Transportation
Safety Board. City ofcials say it is
based on NTSB reports and interviews
by federal investigators; the city did
not conduct an autopsy or consult with
medical experts.
The city said in its document that nei-
ther of two NTSB reports noted dust,
dirt, debris or firefighting foam in
Meng Yuans trachea or lung tissues.
The city also said that NTSB investiga-
tors found she had not buckled her seat
belt for the landing, based on inter-
views with survivors and an inspection
that found her seat belt attached and
San Mateo County Coroner Robert
Foucrault said the conclusions in the
city report were not accurate.
We did our examination and we
determined that the young lady was
alive when she was struck by the re
trucks, Foucrault said. The death cer-
ticate says what it says. If someone
wants to put a spin on something they
can do that.
While announcing the results of his
autopsy last summer, Foucrault declined
to go into detail on how he determined
the teenager was alive before she was
struck but did say there was internal
hemorrhaging that indicated her heart
was still beating at the time.
Attorney Gretchen Nelson, who is
representing the families of crash vic-
tims in a claim against the city of San
Francisco, said lawyers reviewed the
citys ndings about the death and we
do not agree.
The citys report, prepared by airport
and re department ofcials, is one of
hundreds of documents the NTSB will
review before concluding its accident
Some documents describe how after
the crash, Meng Yuan was struck twice
by emergency vehicles on the runway
once by a re rig spraying foam and
again 11 minutes later by a second
truck that was turning around to fetch
Firefighters told authorities she
appeared to be dead she was covered
with dust, silent, not moving so
they raced on toward the re. The NTSB
records included excerpts from the
coroners report but do not include
information about when or how the girl
San Francisco airport spokesman
Doug Yakel said ofcials with the facil-
ity didnt intend to dispute the coro-
ners conclusion but had depended sole-
ly on NTSB records to conclude the girl
had died when she hit the ground.
NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway
said agency ofcials do not put person-
al information such as causes of death
in their public les, but San Francisco
ofcials could have looked at the coro-
ners reports.
Aviation attorney Ron Goldman,
whose rm is suing the airline and air-
craft manufacturer on behalf of 14 sur-
vivors, said city ofcials are trying to
avoid hefty payouts, and are not going
to admit anything in public records
that could later be used against them.
The city has an ax to grind here
because their liability could hang in
the balance of whether she was already
dead or whether she was alive and they
failed to move her to a safe place,
Goldman said.
David Levine, a law professor at
University of Californias Hastings
College of the Law, said the city attor-
neys document is one partys version
of what happened.
The city says two things, Levine
said: The girl was dead when she was
run over. And even if she wasnt dead,
its not the citys fault because things
were so chaotic and dangerous when
she was struck that no reasonable jury
or judge could blame the city.
If you believe the citys report, dam-
ages are going to be zero, Levine said.
If you believe the coroner, the family
is entitled to millions.
Levine said theres no surprise the
city would try to cast the best possible
light on itself and its performance that
day and not concede any liability. From
afar, Levine thinks it will be difcult to
prove where the girls fatal injuries
came from the plane or re trucks.
The way she died doesnt ease the
emotional trauma at the San Francisco
Fire Department, where firefighters
were shaken after rescuers drove over
Meng Yuan two times, spokeswoman
Mindy Talmadge said Wednesday.
It doesnt make it better or worse,
really, she said. Its just psychologi-
cally, its a difcult thing. Period.

age-y; but it just kind of comes to me.
We all have access to divine
resources, Sullivan said. Once some-
thing comes to me, I write it down and
improve upon it. I impress on it my
own emotions and experiences. It
comes to me, then I gure out what its
She began playing with her mother
at the age of 4 before going on to earn
a college degree in music. She sings,
plays guitar and ute, but identies as
a classically trained pianist who would
trouble her teachers when she strayed
from precise classical composition.
She infuses improvisation and
rearranges the melodies of the distinc-
tive genre to make it more modern,
Sullivan said.
It makes it something more acces-
sible to people who wouldnt normally
listen to the classics. But thats why
people like cover songs so much, peo-
ple naturally gravitate to what theyve
heard before, Sullivan said.
Its this musical intuition thats led
her to a successful career in a competi-
tive profession.
I think being an indie artist, it
takes a lot of patience and persist-
ence, Sullivan said.
Outside of arranging music, she per-
forms and writing underscores for tele-
vision and radio commercials, she is
passionate about teaching and has
written a book.
The most effective way to instill
musical appreciation is to expose chil-
dren as early as in the womb, Sullivan
said. She incorporates the Japanese
Suzuki method of drawing from ones
environment; rote, the practice of
playing by ear; and learning how to
read music as a comprehensive way to
create young virtuosos, Sullivan said.
Her daughter started young and was
featured on one of her albums when she
was 3 years old, Sullivan said.
That was my favorite part of the
project ... to have captured her sweet
little singing voice on that album,
Sullivan said.
Music is a family affair in the
Sullivan house and she giggles to
announce her husband is now a
Grammy-winning producer. Being rec-
ognized for her work has been hum-
bling and tremendously encouraging.
Now that the chaos of the Grammys
has calmed, shes ready to begin her
next album that will be based on clas-
sical music but stylized with a new age
angle, Sullivan said.
I want to create more music that is
really healing for people and puts
them in a peaceful state, Sullivan
said. I really feel like thats my call-

Notice is hereby given that PHILIP
KEITH, as duly appointed trustee pur-
suant to the Deed of Trust executed by
Juan C. Salgado and Maria R. Salgado,
husband and wife as joint tenants, as
Trustor, dated March 2, 2006 and record-
ed on March 13, 2006, as Instrument No.
2006-035267, of Official Records in the
office of the Recorder of San Mateo
County, CA, will sell on February 18,
2014, at 1:00 P.M., AT THE MARSHALL
check as described below, payable in full
at the time of sale, all right, title and inter-
est conveyed to and now held by him un-
der said Deed of Trust, in property situat-
ed in said County and State, and as
more fully described in the above refer-
ence Deed of Trust. The street address
and other common designation, if any of
the real property described above is pur-
ported to be: 16 FREMONT STREET,
SAN MATEO, CA 94401, APN 033-145-
140-1. The undersigned Trustee dis-
claims any liability for any incorrectness
of the street address and other common
designation, if any, shown herein. Said
sale will be made, but without covenant
or warranty, expressed or implied, re-
garding title, possession, or encumbran-
ces, to pay the remaining unpaid balance
of the obligations secured by the proper-
ty to be sold and reasonable estimated
costs, expenses and advances at the
time of the initial publication of this No-
tice of Trustee's Sale is estimated to be
$269,500.00 (Estimated); provided, how-
ever, prepayment premiums, accrued in-
terest and advances will increase this fig-
ure prior to the sale. Beneficiary's bid at
said sale may include all or part of said
amount. It is possible that at the time of
sale the opening bid may be less than to-
tal indebtedness due. In addition to
cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier's
check drawn on a state or national bank,
a savings and loan association, savings
association or savings bank specified in
Section 5102 of the California Financial
Code and authorized to do business in
California, or other such funds as may be
acceptable to the trustee. In the event
tender other than cash is accepted, the
Trustee may withhold the issuance of the
Trustee's Deed Upon Sale until funds be-
come available to the payee or endorsee
as a matter of right. The property offered
for sale excludes all funds held on ac-
count by the property receiver if applica-
ble. Said sale will be made in an AS IS
condition and without covenant or war-
ranty, express or implied regarding title,
possession or encumbrances, to satisfy
the indebtedness secured by Said Deed
of Trust, advances thereunder, with inter-
est as provided, and the unpaid principal
of the note secured by said Deed of
Trust, with interest thereon as provided
in said Note, plus fees, charges and ex-
penses of the Trustee and of the trusts
created by said deed of trust.
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
may be postponed one or more times by
the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the
California Civil Code. The law requires
that information about trustee sale post-
ponements be made available to you and
to the public, as a courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date has been post-
poned, and, if applicable, the resched-
uled time and date for the sale of this
property, you may call at (888) 745-1888
or visit this Internet Web site www.pkeith- using the file number as-
signed to this case: 12-2808. Informa-
tion about postponements that are very
short in duration or that occur close in
time to the scheduled sale may not im-
mediately be reflected in the telephone
information. The best way to verify post-
ponement information is to attend the
scheduled sale.

German leader: Spying
on allies harms security
BERLIN German Chancellor Angela
Merkel warned on Wednesday that countries
who spy on their allies risk destroying
trust, resulting in less rather than more
Merkel used her inaugural address to
Parliament after her re-election to slam the
United States and Britain over their spy pro-
grams. Among the allegations to surface
from secret U.S. government documents
released by former NSA analyst Edward
Snowden last year are that friendly countries
and their leaders including Merkel
have been the target of electronic eaves-
The U.S. says its surveillance programs
are focused on threats to national security,
including terrorism.
Actions where the ends justify the
means, where everything that is technically
possible is done, harms trust, Merkel said.
It sows distrust. In the end there will be
less, not more, security.
Bitterness of Syrian
war on display at talks
GENEVA The bitterness and rancor
stirred by Syrias civil war were on full dis-
play this week at peace talks in Switzerland
and not just in the closed room where
rival delegations are seeking a way to end
the three-year conict.
For the first time since the country
devolved into its bloody civil war, support-
ers and opponents of President Bashar
Assad many of them journalists are
meeting face to face. The mix is producing
more than just awkward moments between
people with vastly different views.
Around the world
By Yuras Karmanau and Jim Heintz
KIEV, Ukraine Ukraines parliament
on Wednesday passed a measure offering
amnesty to those arrested in two months of
protests, but only if demonstrators vacate
most of the buildings they occupy. The
move was quickly greeted with contempt
by the opposition.
The measure was put forth by a lawmaker
from the party of President Vi kt or
Yanukovych, who is casting about for a
way to end the protests, which are calling
for his resignation. The measure was a soft-
er version of an earlier proposal to only
offer amnesty if all protests dispersed.
But the opposition regards the arrests
during the protests 328 by one lawmak-
ers count as fundamentally illegiti-
In reality, parliament has just passed a
law on hostages. The authorities have
themselves recognized that they are taking
hostages, as terrorists so they can trade the
hostages, said Oleh Tyahnybok, leader of
the Svoboda party and one of the protests
top figures, according to the Interfax news
That disdain was echoed in Kievs central
Independence Square, where protesters
have set up a large tent camp and conducted
round-the-clock demonstrations since
early December.
Is this a compromise, or are these polit-
ical prisoners, said 30-year-old demon-
strator Artem Sharai. We will seize new
buildings, if the authorities dont really
change the situation in the country.
Protesters are demanding Yanukovychs
resignation, early elections and the firing
of authorities responsible for violent
police dispersals of demonstrators. The
protests started after Yanukovych backed
out of a long-awaited agreement to deepen
ties with the European Union, but quickly
came to encompass a wide array of discon-
tent over corruption, heavy-handed police
and dubious courts.
Three demonstrators died in clashes with
police last week, as anger boiled up over
harsh anti-protest laws that Yanukovych
pushed through this month. Parliament
voted on Tuesday to repeal those laws, but
Yanukovych has not signed the measure.
The bill would not apply to several city
buildings in the center of Kiev which the
protesters use as dormitories and operation
centers, and are key support facilities for
the extensive protest tent camp on the
main square. With temperatures dropping
as low as -20 Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit) dur-
ing the night, continuing the protests
without places to shelter would be virtually
But the Kiev city hall building, as well as
regional administration ones seized by
protesters in western Ukrainian cities, will
have to be vacated, according to the Unian
news agency.
Ukraine lawmakers offer protester amnesty
Protesters wait for a decision on an amnesty law at a barricade in Kiev, Ukraine.
