OIL PIPELINE CLEARS SIGNIFICANT
HURDLE
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
If you don’t want to leave your
couch to eat restaurant food, there
are a number of emerging services
along the Peninsula that will
bring it to your doorstep.
The Palo Alto-based Fluc, or
Food Lovers United Company,
takes hundreds of local restaurants
and delivers food to people in
under 45 minutes for a flat rate
charge of $6. The startup, founded
about a year ago, just launched its
services in Redwood City and,
with a 250-signature petition
complete, Fluc will be coming to
Burlingame soon. When Fluc
launches in a city, its residents
can order from any restaurant in
the city.
“Our real thing is we do every
single restaurant; others only
tackle ones with delivery drivers,”
said founder Adam Ahmad. “We
have food contractors, which lets
us expand the community of
restaurants we have.”
Bryce Nelson, a 16-year-old liv-
ing in Burlingame, put together
the petition to bring Fluc to
Burlingame after hearing rave
reviews from friends living in
Menlo Park and Palo Alto who
used the service.
“I finally got to try it out for
myself when I was at a friend’s
house in Palo Alto, and it was
absolutely amazing — a Fluc driv-
er brought me a sandwich from
CREAM, just like a delivery guy
would do for pizza,” he wrote in an
email. “I was blown away by how
quick the service was and how it
worked with so many restaurants.

drive to far to get food, the idea of

State won’t
allot water
By Juliet Williams
and Jason Dearen
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SACRAMENTO — Amid severe
drought conditions, California
officials announced Friday they
won’t send any water from the
state’s vast reservoir system to
local agencies beginning this
spring, an unprecedented move
that affects drinking water sup-
plies for 25 million people and
irrigation for 1 million acres of
farmland.
The announcement marks the
first time in the 54-year history of
the State Water Project that such an
action has been taken, but it does
not mean that every farm field will
turn to dust and every city tap will
run dry.
The 29 agencies that draw from
the state’s water-delivery system
have other sources, although
those also have been hard-hit by
the drought.
Many farmers in California’s
Central Valley, one of the most
productive agricultural regions in
the country, also draw water from a
separate system of federally run
reservoirs and canals, but that sys-
tem also will deliver just a fraction
of its normal water allotment this
year.
The announcement affects water
deliveries planned to begin this
spring, and the allotment could
increase if weather patterns
change and send more storms into
the state.
Nevertheless, Friday’s
announcement puts an exclama-
tion point on California’s water
shortage, which has been building

Redwood City cannot keep more
than $10 million set aside for
affordable housing in the city
because they had not yet been
committed to special projects,
according to a judge who also
ordered the money paid to local
taxing entities.
The city and the Legal Aid
Society of San Mateo County had
challenged the state over the hous-
ing funds and last year sought a
court order to prevent California
from reclaiming the money. The
city’s now-defunct redevelopment
agency had accumulated funds
above and beyond the mandated 20
percent for low- and moderate-
income-level housing. But when
the state dismantled each of its
redevelopment agencies, Redwood
City was told to turn over all the

Menlo Park Fire District Chief Harold Schapelhouman is back to work after suffering from a tragic accident.
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Harold Schapelhouman has
spent his life dedicated to public
service — he traveled to New York
to assist in the aftermath of the
terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001,
was deployed to assist after
Hurricane Katrina and helped dig
through the rubble of the
Oklahoma City bombings.
And even after suffering a debili-
tating accident which left him par-
alyzed eight months ago, he’s
thankful to be back at work as
chief of the Menlo Park Fire
Protection District.
“I’ve always been interested in
what people do in a tight spot,
what they’ll do to survive,”
Schapelhouman said. “In this
business, you see a lot of people
who have bad days. Then I had my
own.”
Schapelhouman, 52, has been a
firefighter for 33 years and chief
since 2007. In May 2013, he
broke his back after falling 15 feet
from a ladder while trimming trees
at his San Jose home causing
major spinal cord damage that left
him paralyzed.
His injuries are considered
incomplete and, while continuing
rehab, he’s regained the full use of
his right arm and partial use of his
left arm. His dedicated progress
allowed him to return to work part
time at the beginning of January,
Schapelhouman said.
“There’s a chance I can get bet-
ter. I’m pretty optimistic, but
Determined to serve
Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman recovering from paralyzing fall
“There’s a chance I can get better. I’m pretty optimistic, but always

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
Historically low inflation rates are good
news for property owners who will get a tax
break because of smaller increases in their
assessments, Mark Church announced Friday.
Church, the county assessor/county
clerk/recorder, said the annual inflation factor
announced by the California State Board of
Equalization is .454 percent, which is one of
the lowest in the last 38 years. The lower
inflation factor means an estimated $1.84 bil-
lion off the factored base year value for prop-
erties that aren’t new construction or under
new ownership. The factor is based on the
California Consumer Price Index for the peri-
od from October of the prior fiscal year to
October of the current fiscal year.
The base year value of a property is estab-
lished with construction or change in owner-
ship and Proposition 13 limits annual
changes to no more than 2 percent.
Historically, annual increases have been 2
percent in all but seven of the last 38 years.
However, Church said what is good
for the property owners isn’t quite as
rosy for the county.
“While most property owners will receive a
tax break, the reduction in the annual infla-
tion factor also reduces the anticipated prop-
erty tax base that supports the county, all
cities, school districts and special districts in
San Mateo County,” Church said in a prepared
statement.
Any reductions, though, will likely be
compensated by the roll’s overall increasing
value due to strong real estate sales, new con-
struction and restoration of decline in values,
according to Church.
The 2014-15 secured roll value is estimated
to increase 4.77 percent over the 2013-14
roll for a total of $156.98 billion.
Property owners will get lower assessments

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
A convicted sex offender facing life in
prison for flashing a mother and child at a
Christmas tree lot and, while out on bail four
months later, reportedly harassing several
San Bruno children, settled both cases for no
more than nearly nine years in prison.
Allan Wayne Meaney, 68, pleaded no con-
test to felony charges of indecent exposure
and child annoyance, both with the allega-
tions he has prior convictions, on the sec-
ond day of his jury trial. Under the negotiat-
ed plea deal, Meaney faces up to eight years
and eight months prison when sentenced
March 12 but a judge can consider not count-
ing one of his prior criminal strikes. Had
Meaney stood trial and been convicted as a
third striker, he was look-
ing at possibly 25 years
to life in prison.
In the first case, a
woman reported spotting
Meaney grabbing himself
through an open zipper
Dec. 1, 2012, at a Colma
Christmas tree lot where
she was shopping with
her 6-year-old daughter.
The woman screamed, Meaney ran and
reportedly crashed his car while fleeing. He
posted bail and was free in April 2013 when
a father called San Bruno police to report
him lingering near children playing soccer.
When the father of one child questioned
Meaney about his presence, he reportedly
said he was looking for somebody named
“Jim” and continued returning to the loca-
tion each time he was told to leave. The last
time, he reportedly flagged down a 9-year-
old girl in a school uniform whom was asked
four to five times if she had a boyfriend,
according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Meaney has several prior convictions for
sexual abuse against children and was once
detained at a state facility as a mentally dis-
ordered sex offender, a label that has since
been replaced by the term “sexually violent
predator.”
Prior to trial, Meaney’s defense attorney
questioned his ability to stand trial but a
majority of court-appointed doctors deemed
him competent. Meaney remains in custody
on $1 million bail.

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
Redwood City planning commissioners
will get another swipe at the development
plan for Pete’s Harbor Monday night when
they consider approving a revamped project
calling for 411 units and a commercial mari-
na at the former floating community.
The Planning Commission has held two
public workshops on the revised proposal
submitted last summer and is now ready to
discuss the details amongst itself.
The major differences between the origi-
nal blueprint and the July 2013 version are
the elimination of the outer marina, the
reconfiguration of the inner marina to
include a hand boat launch and public
access, additional parking for the commer-
cial marina and revisions to the public
access trail.
The Planning Commission approved the
original development proposal last year
but, after opponents appealed it to the City
Council, that body sent it back for reconsid-
eration because of significant changes made
after the fact. Developer Paul Powers origi-
nally eliminated the commercial slips, then
proposed an outer marina of about 150
spaces and now calls for 65 publicly avail-
able.
The latest plan also calls for a new 460-
foot-long bicycle and pedestrian trail con-
nection on the west side of Uccelli
Boulevard linking public trails to the Bair
Island Bridge and other southern areas.
The very public fight over the fate of
Pete’s Harbor began in late 2012 when
owner Paula Uccelli informed tenants of the
possible sale and their pending eviction
from the boating community. Occupy
Redwood City jumped on board the debate
and several tenants sued Uccelli, claiming
the plan to transfer the harbor lease to
Powers and the Pauls Corp. was illegal
because it lacked a commercial marina. The
suit was dropped after a judge refused to tem-
porarily halt the evictions. Uccelli then ter-
minated her lease with the State Lands
Commission and removed the docks. All
tenants eventually left.
The Redwood City Planning Commission
meets 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3 at City Hall,
1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.

does not include the elderly, who are most
vulnerable. Last season, a total of 106 flu-
related deaths were recorded in the state.
“This influenza season continues to be a
severe one as the increasing number of
influenza-related deaths indicates,” Dr. Ron
Chapman, the state health officer, said.

Police seek info on recent burglary rash
San Bruno police are advising residents to quickly
report suspicious activity after a recent spike in home
burglaries, including one on Thursday afternoon.
Officers responded to a report of a burglary at a home in
the 2900 block of Fleetwood Drive at about 12:15 p.m.
Thursday, police said.
The resident of the home told investigators he had
returned home and found the residence was burglarized and
a window in the back of the home had been broken,
according to police.
Officers searched the area but were unable to find any
suspects.
Police are continuing to investigate a recent rash of
home burglaries in the city. The department is asking the
public to quickly report any suspicious activity by call-
ing 911 and leaving a detailed description of the individ-
uals and their cars, if any.
Anyone with information about Thursday’s burglary is
asked to call San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100.
Delays at SFO expected
during runway safety work
Air travelers will likely endure delays at San Francisco
International Airport in spring and summer because of
construction work on some runways.
SFO will close two of its four runways from mid-May
through September.
Construction crews will be installing collapsible pave-
ment meant to stop runaway planes from careening off the
tarmac.
The updates are part of a Federal Avi at i on
Administration safety mandate.
During the work SFO will shut down its shorter runways
which usually handle departing flights.
Doug Yakel, an airport spokesman, says the runway clo-
sures could lead to delays during peak hours on weekdays.
Arriving flights will likely be most affected, leading to
more circling over the Bay Area while pilots wait for
clearance to land.

A longtime social justice leader, lawyer,
professor and described by the Washington
Post as “the quintessential religious lobby-
ist on Capitol Hill,” Rabbi David
Saperstein will be spending two weeks in
San Mateo lecturing about various social
justice issues.
Saperstein’s free 13 lectures are part of the
North Peninsula Jewish Community
Center’s scholar-in-residence program,
which was inaugurated in 2011. Saperstein,
66, has headed the Religious Action Center
of Reform Judaism for 40 years and also rep-
resents the national Reform Jewish
Movement to Congress and the president’s
administration.
“I’ve stayed because I believe deeply we
are called by God to be partners in shaping
the world with social justice for all of God’s
children,” said Saperstein, who was selected
by Newsweek magazine in 2009 as the most
influential rabbi in the country. “It has been
a great blessing in my life.”
Saperstein is part of a large rabbinic fam-
i l y. Two great uncles were Reform rabbis,
and two great-grandfathers were Orthodox
rabbis. His father Harold and uncle Sanford
were well-known Reform rabbis and his
brother Marc is a leading Jewish scholar.
His upcoming lecture topics include
“Being the Hands of God: Jewish Justice at a
Time of Crisis and Opportunity,” “Israel in
Crisis: Is There Still Hope for Peace?” and
“The Environment, Global Warming and
American Jews.” He says, for now, he is
focusing on gun control, economic justice,
the Middle East peace process, employment
discrimination and comprehensive immi-
gration reform. In total, it deals with 60-65
issues.
Saperstein, who lives in Washington,
D.C., and teaches law at Georgetown
University Law School, is originally from
New York. He first started at his role at the
center after writing about the future of
Reform Judaism when the denomination cel-
ebrated its 100th anniversary and helped
mobilize rabbis to protest the bombing of
Cambodia in the early 1970s. Now, he has
two sons, aged 20 and 23, and is married to
award-winning journalist Ellen Weiss.
“Like many of us, it was circumstantial,”
he said. “Three heads had left the office with-
in four years and they wanted someone
younger who would be around for a while.”
His job consists of three parts, the first is
working on advocacy for various issues,

LUBBOCK, Texas — The lingering
effects of drought across the Great Plains
last year continued to shrink the size of the
U.S. cattle herd, according to experts and a
U.S. Department of Agriculture report
released Friday.
The National Agricultural Statistics
Service reported that the U.S. inventory of
cattle and calves totaled 87.7 million ani-
mals as of Jan. 1. That was down by about
1.6 million cattle, or 2 percent, compared
with this time last year.
The agency said this is the lowest January
cattle inventory since 1951 and said it was
the second straight year the herd shrank by
2 percent.
The shrinking supply could cost con-
sumers into 2015, said Jim Robb, director
of the Livestock Marketing Information
Center in Denver, which is funded by the
beef industry, universities and the govern-
ment.
Abright spot was a 2 percent increase in
young, female cattle retained for breeding.
One expert said that factor could allow the
herd’s seven-year contraction to stabilize.
“It will take rain this year,” said Robb,
who attributed the decrease to drought. “The
rate of heifer holdback is just a step toward
stabilization, but it’s a critical step.”
Totals in Texas, the nation’s leading cattle
producer that had its driest year ever in
2011, decreased 4 percent to 10.9 million
animals. Herds in Kansas and California
decreased 1 percent, and Nebraska’s dropped
2 percent.
Ranchers across drought-stricken states
in recent years couldn’t afford to feed their
animals, so they sold them to out-of-state
buyers or sent them to slaughter.
The January report had been anxiously
awaited because the agency didn’t issue a
report in July due to sequestration.
This year will be a historically tight cattle
and beef situation, said Glynn Tonsor,
Kansas State University extension special-
ist. “Nothing that comes in this report will
change that kind of fundamental point, and
consumers are very likely to see historical-
ly high beef prices through 2014,” he said.
The number of young females held back
totaled 5.5 million and most were born last
year, Robb said.
“We have more states holding back
heifers than a year ago because of improved
forage conditions and lower feed costs,” he
said.

SACRAMENTO — Prison officials
revealed new rules Friday that they say will
make California the first state to recognize
that inmates can quit prison gangs and put
that lifestyle behind them, allowing them
to escape the tough restrictions that gang
members are subject to.
However, gang associates would have to
steer clear of gang activities for about a
decade to qualify, while gang leaders would
have to behave for a minimum of 14 years.
The draft regulations made public Friday
are the latest changes to rules that keep
some gangmembers locked in special isola-
tion units for years and have led to wide-
spread inmate hunger strikes. Aspokesman
for a coalition of reform groups that backed
the hunger strikers called the changes “woe-
fully inadequate.”
Prison officials consider more than 2,800
of California’s nearly 134,000 inmates to
be gang members or associates, and say
they direct much of the violence and contra-
band smuggling both behind bars and on the
streets.

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama’s new declaration
that he’s open to legalizing many
immigrants short of citizenship
sounds a lot like House Speaker
John Boehner and other GOP lead-
ers, an election-year compromise
that numerous Republicans as well
as Democrats crave.
But the drive for the first over-
haul in three decades still faces
major resistance from many
Republicans who are wary that the
divisive issue could derail what
they see as a smooth glide path to
winning November’s congres-
sional elections. And they deeply
distrust the Democratic president
to enforce the law.
Just hours after Boehner pitched
immigration to the GOP at a
Maryland retreat, Obama suddenly
indicated he would be open to legal
status for many of the 11 million
living here illegally, dropping his
once-ironclad insistence on a spe-
cial path to citizenship.
Democrats, including Obama,
and other immigration proponents
have warned repeatedly about the
creation of a two-tier class sys-
tem.
“If the speaker proposes some-
thing that says right away, folks
aren’t being deported, families
aren’t being separated, we’re able
to attract top young students to
provide the skills or start busi-
nesses here, and then there’s a reg-
ular process of citizenship, I’m
not sure how wide the divide ends
up being,” Obama said in a CNN
interview that was recorded
Thursday and aired Friday.
Obama’s flexibility is a clear
indication of the president’s desire
to secure an elusive legislative
achievement before voters decide
whether to hand him even more
opposition in Congress.
Republicans are expected to main-
tain their grip on the House and
have a legitimate shot at grabbing
the majority in the Senate.
“I’m going to do everything I
can in the coming months to see if
we can get this over the finish
line,” Obama said Friday of an
immigration overhaul in a Google
Plus Hangout talk.
In an earlier compromise,
Obama signaled late last year that
he could accept the House’s piece-
meal, bill-by-bill approach to
immigration changes after months
of backing a comprehensive,
bipartisan Senate bill. Notably, he
calibrated his comments on immi-
gration in his State of the Union
address this week.
“I think he realizes that this is a
very delicate issue, it’s very con-
troversial and I think his recent
statements have been very, very
positive in allowing us to move
forward,” Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart,
R-Fla., a proponent of immigra-
tion overhaul, told reporters
Friday.
Boehner, for his part, tried to
sell his reluctant broader caucus on
tackling immigration this year by
casting it as critical to job cre-
ation, economic growth and
national security.
Citizenship for immigrants?
President eases insistence
By Matthew Daly
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The long-
delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline
cleared a major hurdle toward
approval Friday, a serious blow to
environmentalists’ hopes that
President Barack Obama will block
the controversial project running
more than 1,000 miles from
Canada through the heart of the
U.S.
The State Department reported no
major environmental objections to
the proposed $7 billion pipeline,
which has become a symbol of the
political debate over climate
change. Republicans and some oil-
and gas-producing states in the
U.S. — as well as Canada’s minis-
ter of natural resources — cheered
the report, but it further rankled
environmentalists already at odds
with Obama and his energy policy.
The report stops short of recom-
mending approval of the pipeline,
but the review gives Obama new
support if he chooses to endorse it
in spite of opposition from many
Democrats and environmental
groups. Foes say the pipeline
would carry “dirty oil” that con-
tributes to global warming, and
they also express concern about
possible spills.
Republicans and business and
labor groups have urged Obama to
approve the pipeline to create
thousands of jobs and move further
toward North American energy
independence. The pipeline is also
strongly supported by Democrats
in oil and gas-producing states,
including Sens. Mary Landrieu of
Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska
and Mark Pryor of Arkansas. All
face re-election this year and could
be politically damaged by rejec-
tion of the pipeline. Republican
Mitt Romney carried all three
states in the 2012 presidential
election.
The 1,179-mile pipeline would
travel through the heart of the
United States, carrying oil derived
from tar sands in western Canada to
a hub in Nebraska, where it would
connect with existing pipelines to
carry more than 800,000 barrels of
crude oil a day to refineries on the
Texas Gulf Coast.

Thank God for Virginia
Editor,
John McDowell’s recent column
“Thank God for Mississippi,” in the
Jan. 25 edition of the Daily Journal
notes there is a state with lower aca-
demic achievement than California’s
public schools.
Besides the charter school fix,
California should consider making
elementary school K-6, and junior
high 7-8, and do away with middle
school 6-8. Our two kids attended
California schools K-6. We moved to
Virginia in 1992 and they both
entered seventh-grade junior high —
both kids were way behind their
peers. The philosophy in Virginia
was that children were more teachable
at ages 11 and 12 than in their early
teens. In sixth-grade, they crammed
them in preparation for the “right of
passage” to attend junior high. The
result was that they were better pre-
pared and could handle school better
during their early tumultuous teenage
years.
Fortunately, our kids caught up by
the time they finished high school
and earned college degrees. Thank
God we lived in Virginia.

Disturbing ignorance
Editor,
James G.B. DeMartini Jr. praises
Irv Chase for his “excellent” letters
against climate change and wishes
there were more Americans like that
(Letter to the editor “It’s still a hoax”
in the Jan. 21 edition of the Daily
Journal).
Actually, there are, and that’s the
problem. That’s why we, as a nation,
are lagging behind more enlightened
countries in math and science. That’s
why we keep electing officials who
abhor learning, logic and progress.
That’s why science-challenged politi-
cians are elevated to head science-
related committees. That’s why text
books often are riddled with dogmas,
superstitions and blind faith to be
passed on to the next generation.
That’s why global warming deniers
often are the most devoted believers
in stories made up thousands of years
ago that don’t have a shred of evi-
dence. They believe in stories despite
the overwhelming scientific evidence
and against all logic.
Take the so-called “Great Flood.”
Where did all that water come from,
and where did it go afterward? Off the
edge of the flat Earth, perhaps? Same
with water from receding glaciers and
melting polar caps? Off an imaginary
edge with no impact on the climate?
No wonder more enlightened people
not only laugh at us, but also are
afraid because of our disturbing igno-
rance.

Pennywise and billion
pound foolish governor
Editor,
California won’t be fiscally solvent
until Gov. Jerry Brown kills his high-
speed rail money pit. Newspapers
recently reported that California cur-
rently owes $400 billion for state
pensions, bonds and federal govern-
ment payments, yet Brown’s budget
proposes only $1 billion to pay
down this debt.
California can’t afford hundreds of
billions in new debt for a “train to
nowhere.” Politicians promised a $38
billion HSR train in 2008. The esti-
mate to build then ballooned to $118
billion, and after public criticism, the
High-Speed Rail Authority “magical-
ly” lowered it to $68 billion.
California originally estimated the
San Francisco Bay Bridge construc-
tion to cost only $1.2 billion. The
project was then completed at $7 bil-
lion. California mega projects usually
cost six times over original estimate
(due to union costs) so high-speed
rail’s $118 billion estimate will real-
ly cost more than $700 billion if ever
completed.
Wasting money California doesn’t
have to start a new mega boondoggle
isn’t fiscally prudent, particularly
after convincing voters in 2012 to
tax themselves because California
was supposedly hurting financially.

Letters to the editor
Kansas City Star
Y
our dinner has arrived, a nice
piece of fish, delicately
cooked, served perhaps over
a bed of rice or, wow, maybe quinoa.
Was it wild salmon you ordered?
Would you be surprised and disap-
pointed to learn that you got coho
instead?
As the nonprofit organization
Oceana has put it: “Recent studies
have found that seafood may be misla-
beled as often as 25 to 70 percent of
the time for fish like red snapper, wild
salmon, and Atlantic cod, disguising
species that are less desirable, cheap-
er or more readily available.”
Seafood fraud has been documented
in recent years by newspapers,
Consumer Reports and others.
And now two senators want the
Obama administration to do some-
thing about it.
Sen. Edward Markey, a Democrat
from Massachusetts, and Roger
Wicker, a Mississippi Republican,
wrote last week to President Barack
Obama urging action on seafood
fraud.
“This fraud is ripping off con-
sumers,” they wrote, “posing health
risks by disguising species that may
be harmful for sensitive groups, and
harming our oceans by making it eas-
ier for illegally caught product to
make its way into the U.S. market.”
Abig part of the problem, accord-
ing to a 2009 report by the
Government Accountability Office,
involves a lack of coordination and
communication by three agencies
most responsible for seafood inspec-
tions: the Food and Drug
Administration, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration and
Customs and Border Protection. (It
may only add to the confusion and
inefficiencies to note that the
Department of Agriculture has juris-
diction over catfish.)
Upwards of 90 percent of all
seafood consumed domestically is
imported, the senators noted, but the
FDAinspects less than two percent of
those products.
In 2011 Oceana conducted a study of
seafood in the Los Angeles market —
fish sold at grocery stores and restau-
rants, including sushi purveyors —
and reported that 55 of all samples it
collected were mislabeled, and every
fish sold with the word “snapper” in
the label, 34 out of 34, was misidenti-
fied and out of whack with FDAguide-
lines.
Markey and Wicker say they will
work toward solutions in Congress,
but expressed hope that Obama’s
agencies would do a better job of
working together on the fraud. They
should get on it.
Fish consumers deserve accurate
descriptions of what’s on their plates.
What kind of fish is on your plate? Low Bar Brown
“R
esurgent state” screamed the Daily Journal’s
headline after last week’s State of the State
address by Gov. Jerry Brown. Even the staid
Economist magazine titled its analysis of the speech
“California’s Comeback.” To be sure, it’s party time here
in Silicon Valley. San Mateo County’s unemployment rate
is 4.6 percent, second lowest in the state (after Marin) and
it’s significantly lower than the national average.
However, calling the entire state resurgent or claiming a
comeback is putting a happy face on pile of problems,
most of which the governor simply ignored. Jerry Brown
set the comeback bar awfully low, and the mainstream
media was only too happy to oblige.
Let’s start with the unemployment rate. Yes, it’s down
from its peak, but at 8.3 percent in December (latest data
from the Bureau of Labor Statistics), we’re still the third
worst state in the union. Alternatively, our unemployment
rate is 24 percent higher than the national average. Amil-
lion and a half Californians are looking for work, with the
millions more who depend on
them deprived of a household
income. Significantly, more
than 22 percent of the work-
force in the El Centro area is
unemployed as is 20 percent in
Colusa County and 14 percent
in Sutter County.
Not only that, but adding
back in discouraged and margi n-
ally attached workers (those
who have given up completely
looking for work) we find that
the BLS estimates that almost
18 percent of Californians are
out of work. This is shameful. Resurgent it is not.
Sky-high unemployment rates coupled with high living
costs (especially rent) have given California the highest
poverty rate in the country, almost one-fourth of our citi-
zens (23.8 percent) are living in poverty. As reported by
the International Business Times, 38 million of our peo-
ple live below the poverty line, including one third of all
Latinos. This rate exceeds that of Louisiana and
Mississippi. Even in San Mateo County, 7.2 percent of
our neighbors suffer in the grip of poverty’s deprivations.
This is shameful. Resurgent it is not.
I noted last week that California schools’ academic
achievement in grades K-12 rate a D+ grade in the recently
released Education Week 2014 Quality Counts report.
Overall, 31 states rate better, including Georgia, Texas and
New Jersey. In California, fewer than 33 percent of
eighth-graders are proficient in mathematics and just over
a quarter are proficient in reading. The scores for fourth-
grades are just as dismal, with slightly more than 32 per-
cent proficient in math and not quite 27 percent proficient
in reading. Again, resurgent it is not.
Turning to the budget, the centerpiece of the governor’s
address, we find similar issues. The governor took credit
for an operating budget that shows a surplus. Yet this
operating surplus was only achieved through the imposi-
tion of that nation’s highest marginal tax rate at 13.3 per-
cent and increased capital gains taxes. Should markets fal-
ter this year (as they’ve done recently), state spending
could easily fall back into the red. Yet, no mention was
made of this reliance on highly volatile and highly uncer-
tain income in creation of the operating surplus.
To his credit, the governor did mention the looming
long-term debt crisis that exists behind the so-called Wall
of Debt (short-term borrowing that papered over deficits
during the last several years). Nevertheless, mentioning
is not the same as confronting, and his budget doesn’t do
that.
Just this week, the California state teachers retirement
system (CalSTRS) reiterated that it will go broke in 30
years without substantial funding changes. Every day
changes are not implemented means that the costs to fix
the system increase by $22 million. The amount of
unfunded liabilities owed to teachers by you and your fam-
ily has grown to more than $70 billion and gets larger by
the day. Gov. Brown’s budget conveniently ignores this
reality.
Further, the early release of tens of thousands of prison-
ers, a slow train to nowhere costing at least $80 billion,
and billions more for massive new tunnels diverting Delta
water to Southern California all add up to enormous future
public safety, budgetary and ecological problems that
belie any grand resurgence, no matter how the governor
waxed poetic over his meager accomplishments.
Jerry Brown claims a California comeback. In the ’70s,
such nonsense earned him the title Moonbeam. Now,
given his real record and lack of accomplishments, he’s
earned himself a new moniker, “Low Bar Brown.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — Stock investors were
hit from all sides in January.
Concerns about the global economy
and U.S. company earnings, as well as
turmoil in emerging markets, led the
Dow Jones industrial average to its
worst start since 2009. However,
many investors remain hopeful that
the problems will not spill over into
the rest of 2014.
They even see the downturn as
healthy, given the U.S. market’s rapid
rise last year.
The Dow slid 5.3 percent in January
while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index
fell 3.6 percent and the Nasdaq com-
posite declined 1.7 percent.
Investors entered the year with some
degree of skepticism and nervousness.
The stock market went basically
straight up in 2013. The S&P 500
index ended 2013 with a gain of nearly
30 percent, its best year since 1997.
“No amount of negative news could
derail the market last year,” said
Jonathan Corpina, a floor trader at the
New York Stock Exchange with
Meridian Equity Partners.
But no stock market can go straight
up forever.
Many investors expected 2014 to be
a more muddled and volatile year for
the market. Market strategists late last
year were looking for the S&P 500
index to notch a modest gain of 4 per-
cent to 6 percent, ending in the range
of 1,850 to 1,900.
Investors were also looking for
more pullbacks this year and possibly
a correction, the technical term for
when a stock market index like the
S&P 500 falls 10 percent or more.
Three months ago, analysts at
Goldman Sachs said there was roughly
a 60 percent chance that a correction
would happen this year.
“People did look at these stock mar-
ket valuations at the beginning of the
year with a degree of nervousness,”
said David Kelly, chief market strate-
gist with J.P. Morgan Funds. “A cor-
rection would probably be healthy for
the market.”
But many investors were surprised
by January’s turbulence. With one
exception, the Dow had triple-digit
moves every trading day in January.
Still, with the broader S&P 500
index down just 3.6 percent from its
January 15 peak, the downturn is hard-
ly severe.
“There’s been some negative news
out there — the economic data, corpo-
rate earnings and what’s now going on
in emerging markets — but I’m not
convinced the headlines are bad
enough to be a catalyst to push us into
a correction,” Corpina said.
Investors point to the December
jobs report, released on Jan. 10, as the
event that started the troubles. The
U.S. government said employers creat-
ed only 74,000 jobs in December, the
worst month for job creation in since
2011 and far below expectations.
Up until then, weeks of data showed
the U.S. economic recovery was accel-
erating. U.S. companies were selling
record levels of goods overseas; lay-
offs had dwindled; and the Federal
Reserve was pulling back on its eco-
nomic stimulus program, citing an
improving economy.
Many investors called the December
jobs report as a statistical fluke. But
the report has weighed on stocks all
month, investors say.
“It set a negative tone for the mar-
ket,” Kelly said.
Other economic reports also painted
a picture of U.S. economic growth
possibly flattening out instead of
accelerating. Investors combined
these economic worries with mixed
signals from U.S. companies.
Wall Street is in the middle of earn-
ings season, when the country’s major
corporations report results for the
final three months of the year. Half of
the members of the S&P 500 have
reported, and the results have been
mixed.
While fourth-quarter corporate earn-
ings are up a respectable 7.9 percent
from a year earlier, companies have
been cutting their full-year outlooks
and reporting weaker sales, according
to data provider FactSet.
Stocks end January with another decline
By Bernard Condon and Ken Sweet
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — January’s global sell-off in
stocks has left many small investors more
puzzled than panicked — and unsure how to
act.
They’re holding on for now as prices con-
tinue to tumble, but their anxiety is mount-
ing. The number of small investors who say
they feel “bearish” soared this past week,
according to a U.S. survey. Some stock
funds have been hit with their biggest with-
drawals since 2012.
If more people start selling, it would
reverse a new and surprising trend in some of
the world’s biggest economies: individuals
moving back into stocks after years of
shunning them.
“I don’t know what to do,” says Ken
Duska, a retiree in Mingo Junction, Ohio,
who is sticking with his investment plan
for the moment, though he’s not sure that’s
wise. “After (the) upswing last year, it prob-
ably isn’t going to continue.”
Small investors around the world were on
edge even before growing signs of a slow-
down in China and plunging emerging-mar-
ket currencies dragged many stock indexes
down to their worst start of a new year since
2010. They worried stocks were overdue for
a drop, after soaring by double-digit per-
centages in countries like the United States,
Japan and France in 2013. In the U.S., many
noted, the market had not fallen by 10 per-
cent or more, known on Wall Street as a cor-
rection, for more than two years.
Now, with the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age down 5 percent from a recent peak, one
is closer at hand.
“The question is, ‘Is this all of it, or is
there significantly more to come?”’ says
Greg Sarian, a managing director at the
Sarian Group at HighTower, a wealth adviso-
ry firm in Pennsylvania.
Anxiety has ramped up in Asia, too.
“Clients were very worried as they haven’t
seen such market jitters in a while,” says Lee
Young-hwan, a private banking consultant
at Daishin Securities Co. in Seoul, South
Korea. Still, he says that many are more
inclined to snap up stocks now at lower
prices, than to bail out.
That country’s main index, the Kospi, is
down 3.5 percent since the start of the year.
In Japan, the Nikkei is off 8.5 percent, after
soaring 58 percent last year. The Hang Seng
in Hong Kong has fallen nearly 5.5 percent,
after a 3 percent gain.
In Moscow, where the main stock index
has been dropping for a year, Marina
Pliskina, an English teacher, decided she’d
finally had enough. She recently sold all of
her stocks. “You want your money to last,
but then it goes down and down,” she says.
Since the 2008-2009 global financial cri-
sis, small investors have mostly dumped
stocks. But recently, buoyed by strengthen-
ing economies in the developed world, they
have crept back into the market in some
countries. In the final four months of last
year, nearly $100 billion flowed into stock
mutual funds in seven big economies tracked
by Lipper Inc., a fund data provider. The
countries are the U.S., which accounted for
much of the buying, as well as Japan,
Germany, France, the United Kingdom,
Canada and South Korea.
Now, that flow of money might reverse as
investors grow worried.
At the start of the year, more than twice as
many U.S. investors said they were bullish
on stocks than said they were bearish,
according to a survey by the American
Association of Individual Investors. Now,
the bulls and bears are neck and neck, with
sentiments yo-yoing along with the index-
es.
Small investors fight urge to sell as stocks drop
By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Americans
increased their spending at a solid pace
for the second straight month in
December even though their income
was flat.
Consumer spending rose 0.4 percent
in December, compared with
November when spending had
increased an even stronger 0.6 per-
cent, the Commerce Department
reported Friday. That was the best gain
in five months.
Income, however, showed no gain at
all in December after a 0.2 percent rise
in November. Wages and salaries were
basically flat last month, reflecting a
sharp slowing in employment growth.
For all of 2013, income growth was
2.8 percent, the weakest performance
since 2009 when income fell 2.8 per-
cent as the country struggled with a
deep recession.
Economists are hoping that stronger
economic growth will promote
stronger employment and income
gains this year.
Chris G. Christopher, director of
consumer economics at Global
Insight, said that he was looking for
stronger growth in consumer spending
this year, reflecting improvements in
the housing market, job prospects and
consumer confidence.
While consumer confidence has been
rising, the University of Michigan
index of consumer sentiment released
Friday showed a slight drop in January
to 81.2 compared to December reading
of 82.5, a decline attributed in part to
recent setbacks in the stock market.
The combination of stronger spend-
ing in December but no improvement
in income meant that consumers
tapped savings to finance their spend-
ing. The saving rate slipped to 3.9 per-
cent of after-tax income in December,
down from 4.3 percent in November.
U.S. consumer spending up 0.4 percent in December
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — The financial strains
and shifting shopping habits of
Americans have led to uneven fortunes
for retailers.
Traditional consumer companies
like Wal-Mart and Mattel have contin-
ued to struggle as Americans spend
more cautiously in the uncertain econ-
omy. But Amazon.com has flourished
as shoppers increasingly buy online
rather than head to stores. The trend
was evident during the pivotal holiday
shopping season, a time roughly from
November through December when
many retailers can make up to 40 per-
cent of their annual revenue. Overall,
government figures show that spend-
ing during October through December
rose at the fastest clip in three years.
But exactly where — and how —
Americans spent their money during
the final months of the year shifted.
Fewer people were in and out of stores
during the holiday season, but more
were shopping online.
Online shopping rose 10 percent to
$46.5 billion in November and
December, according to research firm
Comscore. Meanwhile, sales at stores
rose just 2.7 percent to $265.9 bil-
lion, according to ShopperTrak, which
tracks data at 40,000 stores in the U.S.
And the number of customers in stores
dropped 14.6 percent.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Record-
setting offense versus relentlessly stingy
defense.
Coaches who actually smile, are
quotable and think football should be fun.
Awintry outdoor setting.
And the two best teams in the NFL.
Sunday’s Super Bowl has just about
everything a fan, a player, a coach — and
certainly a league — could ask for.
“It’s very special to be here,” Seahawks
coach Pete Carroll said. “Look at this
event that our players are having to take
part of. The game, the matchup, the culmi-
nation of the season, all of this is just
extraordinary.”
Carroll is correct about the special
nature of this Super Bowl. It could have a
profound effect on the immediate future of
pro football, too.
Whether it becomes a referendum on
hosting the big game in the elements in a
cold-weather city is unknown. But more
possible is it having a strong bearing on

The Cleveland Browns of the late 1970s
and early 1980s were known as the “cardiac
kids” for their knack of rallying to win
games they had no business winning.
Consider the San Mateo boys’ soccer team
the cardiac kids of the Peninsula Athletic
League. The Bearcats have had a penchant
over the last several years for scoring goals
in the waning minutes of games to forge ties
and wins.
Friday, the Bearcats were at it again.
Trailing 4-2 with mere minutes left in the
game, San Mateo got goals from Tyler
Mucci in the 80th minute and Chuy Barajas
in stoppage time to stun Woodside and fin-
ish with a 4-4 tie — a game in which the
Bearcats trailed 3-0 midway through the sec-
ond half.
“We were calling it a win (in the post-
game meeting),” said San Mateo coach
Chuck Callaghan. “That was a pretty incred-
ible comeback.”
All in all, there were four goals scored in
the six-plus minutes of the game, with San
Mateo scoring three of them. All four of San
Mateo’s goals came in the final 13 minutes
and stoppage time of the game.
Woodside appeared to have the game
wrapped up when Kevin Amaya was taken
down in the San Mateo penalty box, earn-
ing a penalty kick which Salvador Herrera
converted for a 4-2 lead in the 78th minute.
Instead, the Wildcats conceded two goal in
about three minutes.

Local sports roundup
By Julio Lara
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
It’s only fitting that in a season full of ups
and downs, the ending to the latest chapter
in the San Mateo boys’ basketball season
mirrored the year as a whole.
We’ll call it, chaotic.
With 4:14 left in the game, the reigning
Daily Journal Athlete of Week, Hillsdale’s
Brian Houle, stepped to the free throw line
and sunk two freebies to give the Knights
their first lead since late in the second quar-
ter.
And it appeared that the heavily-favored
Hillsdale, after being down by as many as
eight points at a couple of points during the
game, had found a way to outlast the rival
Bearcats and send the San Mateo fans home
disappointed.
But that wasn’t the case. The last four
minutes of Friday’s contest produced eight
lead changes and it took a Brandon Wong
free throw with 23 seconds left in the the
game to help San Mateo secure the 53-51
win — only the second favorable outcome
for the Bearcats thus far in Peninsula
Athletic League play.
“We just needed to calm down,” said San
Mateo head coach Julian Hudson about the
frantic four minutes that ended the game.
“We executed what we wanted to do and did-
n’t panic.”
It truly was a test of nerves for most of the
game for the Bearcats. Those four minutes
aside, San Mateo had to withstand multiple
Hillsdale comebacks — most of which were
fueled by Houle, who finished with a game-
high 25 points.
“I just wanted to make sure we got good
shots,” Hudson said. “When we execute, we
do fine because I do think we have some
great shooters on the team.”
Those shooters stepped up for San Mateo
in a crucial swing late in the first quarter.
After Ryan Nunne carried the bulk of
Hillsdale’s offensive load to begin the
game, a Kevin Attard 3-pointer tied the
game at 11 and that was followed by a a
Wong bomb to give San Mateo its second
lead of the game.
The Bearcats got up by as many as eight
when Paolo Maramba charged a long dis-
tance call to the Knights’ tab with 5:47 left
in the second quarter.
But that’s when Houle, who was blanked
in the first quarter, caught fire for the first
time. He knocked in seven straight points
to help the Knights keep pace and ultimate-
ly regain the lead at 25-24. It’s with time
winding down in the half that San Mateo
showed Hillsdale they weren’t intimated by
the better record. Alex Mostafavi lined up a
3-pointer and knocked it down to give the
Bearcats a 27-25 lead at recess.
A small burst to start the third quarter
helped San Mateo rebuild a lead. They got it
to six midway through the frame and up to as
many as eight after a pair of Wong free
throws.

SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey wants
all players protected from hard collisions at
home plate and serious injuries, catchers and
baserunners alike.
Whether Major League Baseball imple-
ments a new rule banning home-plate colli-
sions in time for the 2014 season, don’t
expect San Francisco’s star catcher to be at
the forefront to speak up on such topics.
Even if his frightening, season-ending leg
injury from May 2011 is still plenty fresh in
fans’ minds.
“I try to keep myself out of the conversa-
tion as much as I can because I know people
are going to connect me to it regardless,”
Posey said Friday, ahead of the Giants’
FanFest on Saturday at AT&T Park. “I’m just
kind of sitting back and letting the higher
powers hammer it out. I have my thoughts
but I’ll keep them to myself.”
Posey, the 2010 NL Rookie of the Year,
tore three ligaments in his
left ankle and broke a bone
in his lower leg when he
run over by the Marlins’
Scott Cousins on May 25,
2011. He made a remark-
able comeback to win the
2012 batting crown and
NL MVP honors while
leading the Giants to a
second World Series cham-
pionship in a three-year span.
Joe Torre, MLB’s executive vice president
for baseball operations, has said the rule to
prevent home-plate collisions would essen-
tially “make sure a baserunner can’t purpose-
ly bowl over” a catcher.
“I don’t think they’re close to a resolution
on that,” Giants general manager Brian
Sabean said. “I’d find a hard time thinking
it’ll be instituted for the ’14 season. It’s
being dealt with at the Major League
Baseball level.”
Giants third base coach Tim Flannery
insists he won’t alter his approach much
when it comes to sending runners on a shal-
low fly ball.
“Just because a guy can’t run him over
doesn’t mean they can’t slide hard, feet first,
late,” he said.
If the rule is put in place — baseball own-
ers and the players’ union are working on a
draft — Posey said he isn’t sure what he
would expect regarding baserunners charging
his way.
“I don’t know, I guess that’s still up in the
air right now,” Posey said. “I think that’s
probably some of the hang up, making sure
all parties are protected.”
Giants right fielder Hunter Pence noted
Friday he gets paid to score runs regardless of
who’s in his way, so such a rule would force
players to quickly make some adjustments.
His proposal: A lane for baserunners they
would use in the path to home.
“If they could make lanes, where if the
catcher’s in front of the plate, the runner
could be in danger if he can’t go through a
catcher who is sticking his leg out,” Pence
said. “It’s almost insane to have a catcher
standing in front of home plate like a sitting
duck and a baserunner just plowing him.
Even in football, they have pads on and they
don’t just let them hit the guy trying to catch
the football. There needs to be a safe spot for
the catcher but also the catcher also can make
the decision to be in the danger zone and the
runner has to have a zone he can go
through.”
NOTES: Sabean said the Giants expect to
reach agreement on a one-year contract with
1B Brandon Belt and avoid arbitration. “I
haven’t gotten the vibes that a hearing will
be necessary.” ... Sabean said he could be
willing to address the idea of a long-term deal
before the season with 3B Pablo Sandoval if
the slugger shows up at spring training in
great shape as expected. .. Several key play-
ers weren’t in attendance for FanFest festivi-
ties, including new starter Tim Hudson, lefty
Madison Bumgarner, Sandoval, CF Angel
Pagan and 2B Marco Scutaro.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Phil Mickelson made it to the
weekend in the Phoenix Open. Another popular left-hander
and a fellow former Arizona State player set the pace.
A week after withdrawing from Torrey Pines because of
back pain, Mickelson shot a 4-under 67 in his afternoon
round Friday at cool and breezy TPC Scottsdale. The defend-
ing champion was eight strokes behind
leaders Bubba Watson and Matt Jones.
“I’m not totally out of it,” Mickelson
said. “Obviously, heading into the week-
end, I’d like to be closer, but as we have
seen in the past, there is that 8-, 9-, 10-,
in some cases 11-under par round out
there.”
Indeed, the three-time champion has
shot 11-under 60 twice in the event, in
the second round in his 2005 victory and
last year in the first round.
Watson, the long-hitting left-hander who won the 2012
Masters, followed his opening 64 with a 66 to reach 12
under. Jones, the Australian who played at Arizona State and
lives in Scottsdale, had his second straight 65.
“It’s right where I want to be going into the weekend,”
Watson said.
The 43-year-old Mickelson felt soreness in his back two
weeks ago in Abu Dhabi, and pulled out at Torrey Pines after
making the 36-hole cut. He flew to Georgia to see back spe-
cialist Tom Boers and was told his facet joints locked up.
“My back feels great,” Mickelson said. “Like I said, it
was a simple fix. I just don’t want to overdo it.”
Lefty saved par with a 12-footer on the par-5 15th hole
after hitting his second shot into the water. On Thursday in
his opening 71, he reached the green in two and three-putted
for par from about the same distance.
“Very difficult conditions to go really low,” Mickelson
said.
Harris English and Greg Chalmers shot 67 to reach 10
under, and Pat Perez, Kevin Stadler and Hideki Matsuyama
were 9 under. Matsuyama had a 67, and Perez and Stadler
shot 68.
Watson opened with a birdie on the par-4 10th. In 50-
degree conditions with the wind hours away on the cloudy
day when it barely reached the mid-60s, he hit a 315-yard
drive to set up a 70-yard shot that he hit to 4 feet.
“Back is not as loose as you want it to be, weather is not
as warm as you want it to be,” Watson said. “But I hit a good
tee shot, and then I hit my wedge in there close and I made
the putt. ... That got me going.”
Wearing lime greens shoes and an otherwise all-black
outfit, Watson bogeyed the par-3 seventh after driving
right. He made a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-4 eighth and
closed with a bogey on the par-4 ninth after his wedge shot
spun off the green.
“I had two sloppy bogeys coming down the stretch, but I
will take it,” Watson said.

minutes,” said Woodside coach Darrell
Ringman. “We had a two-goal lead and then
just relaxed.”
Callaghan praised his team for never quit-
ting, especially after giving up the penalty
just four minutes after the Bearcats had cut the
Woodside lead to 3-2.
“The could have hung their heads (after the
penalty kick),” Callaghan said. “They just
kept fighting.”
Things might have been different if San
Mateo (2-5-1 PALBay) had played its starting
lineup from the beginning of the game. But
Callaghan said he sat five starters for the first
half as a disciplinary measure. During those
opening 40 minutes, San Mateo could barely
string together three passes.
Woodside (6-0-2), on the other hand, did
pretty much whatever it wanted. The Wildcats
dominated possession and locked the Bearcats
into their half of the field for nearly the dura-
tion of the half, outshooting San Mateo 15-0,
with six of those on frame.
So it seemed inevitable the Wildcats would
find the back of the net sooner rather than
later. It took a bit of a lucky break, but
Woodside did get on the board first in the sixth
minute. Aball was crossed into the San Mateo
penalty and a shot fired on goal. The ball
deflected off a San Mateo defender and began
bouncing toward the left corner of the net. The
Bearcats goalkeeper tried to track it down, but
it hit the goalpost and ricocheted to the front
of the goal, where Amaya was waiting and
tapped it into the open goal for a 1-0 lead.
The Bearcats finally relieved the pressure on
its defense late in the half and used that
momentum to finally get something going in
the second half.
It got worse before it got better for the
Bearcats, however. Woodside doubled its lead
just three minutes into the second half when
Ben Consoli ran onto a ball near the end line
and started working his way back into the San
Mateo penalty. Using a number of stutter
steps, cutbacks and step overs, Consoli
maneuvered around a pair of San Mateo defend-
ers, found some space at the top of the penal-
ty and unleashed a quick, low shot that beat
the goalkeeper to the near post to put
Woodside up 2-0.
The Wildcats made it 3-0 in the 57th minute
when Luis Mancilla battled to keep posses-
sion of the ball near the San Mateo penalty
box, before finding a sliver of space and
unloosing a shot that found the back of the
net.
“We gave up some goals it didn’t seem like
we should have given up,” Callaghan said.
Minutes later, the Bearcats began their
comeback. Alejandro Mendoza, who was one
of the starters being punished in the first half,
came on in the second and had a major hand in
the Bearcats’ rally. They earned a free kick
from about 35 yards away from the Woodside
goal. Mendoza stepped up and bent a shot
around the defensive wall and off the crossbar.
The ball all but landed on the foot of Rony
Guzman who pounded the ball into the empty
net for San Mateo’s first goal in the 67th
minute.
Mendoza got the Bearcats’ second goal in
the 74th minute, thanks to the tenacious play
of left fullback Patrick Hughes, who was push-
ing up into the offense. Hughes battled for
possession of the ball deep in Woodside terri-
tory, before finally poking a pass to Mendoza,
who made a parallel run at the top of the
Woodside penalty. He dribbled into space and
unleashed a cross-body shot that found the left
corner of the net and San Mateo’s deficit was
just 3-2 with six minutes and stoppage time
left.
Herrera scored his penalty-kick goal in the
78th minute before San Mateo completed an
unthinkable comeback.
Some of the luck Woodside had in the first
half swung over to San Mateo’s Mucci in the
80th minute. Mendoza, once again, triggered
the play, sending a ball to the left flank that
Mucci chased down. With a step on the defend-
er and his momentum taking him away from
the goal, Mucci somehow managed to get a
shot off across his body and, with the perfect
speed and angle, snuck the ball inside the far
right post for the Bearcats’ third goal of the
game.
Minutes later, Barajas scored the equalizer
on simple hustle. There was a scrum in the
middle of the Woodside penalty box involv-
ing several players from each team. Barajas
tried to draw a penalty kick by going down in
the box but, when that didn’t work, he
bounced right back up and got back into the
play. He won a 50-50 about eight yards from
goal and, with a defender draped all over him,
somehow poked the ball on goal that trickled
just inside the right post and under the
Woodside goalkeeper for the tying score.
“Every soccer game teaches you a different
lesson,” Ringman said. “Soccer is game you
play to the final whistle.”

Dead Puerto Rico boxer
posed standing in the ring
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Even in death,
Christopher Rivera Amaro almost looked
ready to box, leaning against the corner of a
simulated ring.
Mourners who came to his wake in San
Juan on Friday found him posed afoot, a yel-
low hood on his head, sunglasses glasses
over his eyes and blue boxing gloves on his
hands.
Elsie Rodriguez, vice president of the
Marin Funeral Home, said Rivera’s family
wanted to stress his boxing. The funeral
home suggested posing him in a ring.
The makeshift ring was set up in a commu-
nity center of a public housing complex.
Rodriguez told The Associated Press it took
them several hours to create the scene.
The funeral home has staged similar wakes
for others. One featured a deceased man rid-
ing his motorcycle.
The 23-year-old Rivera had a 5-15 record
in the 130-pound weight class. Police said
he was shot dead Sunday in the city of
Santurce. No one has been arrested.
Guard gets 180 days in
jail for Lakers rings theft
LOS ANGELES — Aformer security guard
who stole Los Angeles Lakers champi-
onship rings from a training center has been
sentenced to 180 days in jail.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say
Mejia (Meh-HEE’-yuh) Monterroso pleaded
no contest to grand theft Friday. He also will
have to pay nearly $14,000 in restitution.
Monterroso was arrested in December.
Prosecutors say the 23-year-old was a
guard at the Toyota Sports Center in El
Segundo last year when he took three cham-
pionship rings and hundreds of gift cards
during a night shift.
Police say they found two of the rings at
his Inglewood home.
Sports briefs
The San Mateo guard was huge throughout
the game. He finished with 19 points —
perhaps none bigger than the two he scored
after a steal to begin the fourth quarter. Sure,
Wong’s free throw at the end of the game
were margin-of-victory points. But that
steal and layup lit up the San Mateo gymna-
sium to start the pivotal fourth quarter. And
it was that fuel that carried San Mateo the
rest of the way.
The Knights charged back behind Houle
(who scored seven of his 25 in the fourth)
and Andre Fontenot — it was his put back
that got the Knights to within one with four
minutes and change left in the game.
It was after that, when in the penalty, that
Houle got to the line and sunk his shots to
make it 45-44 Hillsdale.
So, back and forth the two rivals went and
it was a Mostafavi leaner and a Derek
Kawahara jumper that kept San Mateo from
totally imploding.
The loss drops Hillsdale to 6-2 on in PAL
South play and will force its hand next week
when they battle first-place Burlingame. A
win by the Panthers next week against the
Knights and the Panthers would have a
stranglehold on the division title.
Burlingame 80, Capuchino 47
Frankie Ferrari scored 12 of his 23 points
from the free throw line in the Panthers’
dominating win over the Mustangs.
Burlingame (8-0 PAL South) led 24-9 after
the first quarter. Justin Gutang scored 15
points for the Panthers, while Nick Loew
had 16 points and pulled down 11 rebounds.

SALT LAKE CITY — Stephen Curry made
eight 3-pointers in scoring a season-high 44
points, leading the Golden State Warriors past
Utah 95-90 Friday on a night the Jazz honored
former coach Jerry Sloan.
Curry had 13 points in the fourth quarter as the
Warriors came from nine points behind to win
on back-to-back nights.
Andrew Bogut had 16 points, 17 rebounds and
five assists to help overcome the loss of David
Lee (shoulder, hip) and a horrendous shooting
night from backcourt mate Klay Thompson,
who was 3 of 20 for 11 points.
Reserve guard Alec Burks had with 26 points
on a variety of jumpers and acrobatic drives but
it wasn’t enough for Utah, which dealt with
injuries to three frontcourt players.
The Jazz played without starting forward
Marvin Williams (heel), center Derrick Favors
(hip) and starter Jeremy Evans left the game in
the second quarter after a scary fall.
In a halftime ceremony, the Jazz honored
Sloan, the Hall of Fame coach. They raised a
banner at EnergySolutions Arena featuring the
number ‘1223’, which represents the combined
number of Sloan’s regular season (1,127) and
playoff (96) victories in his 23 years as head
coach of the Jazz from 1988-2011.
Karl Malone, John Stockton, long-time
assistant Phil Johnson and Utah owner Gail
Miller were among those who spoke during the
festivities, which brought long periods of sus-
tained ovations.
“I feel like I was the luckiest coach in basket-
ball to have these players and the organization
I had here,” said Sloan, who won more games
with one franchise (1,127) than any other
coach. More than a dozen of his former players
joined him on the court, including current head
coach Ty Corbin.
The Jazz led 77-68 early in the fourth quarter,
but the ragtag Jazz lineup collapsed against the
onslaught of Curry’s 3-pointers and Bogut’s
inside play during a 12-0 run that allowed the
Warriors to reclaim the lead with 6:55 to play.
Jazz rookie Trey Burke was hampered with flu-
like symptoms and foul trouble trying to stay
with Curry and finished with four points.
Reserve point Diante Garrett had a career-high
13 points.
Even when he was wide open, Thompson
couldn’t find his range but Curry was more than
able to make the key plays.
Burks made a layup for Utah’s final lead at 88-
87 with 2:17 remaining.
Curry responded with a shot in the lane to
spark a spurt of eight straight points to clinch
the win for Golden State.
The Warriors have struggled since a 10-game
winning streak in December and January, unable
to string two wins together until the past two.
One night after an impressive 111-92 win over
the Los Angeles Clippers, the Warriors over-
came a crowd that was rocking like it did when
Sloan patrolled the sidelines and Stockton and
Malone were taking the Jazz to NBAFinals.
Evans was undercut on a rebound and landed
on his back with 3:15 left in the first half. He
laid still for a couple minutes and then gingerly
walked to the locker room with assistance.
Diagnosed with a bruised tailbone and right
elbow, he missed the rest of the game.
The Jazz haven’t played on the road since Jan.
18 at Minnesota, but they weren’t able to extend
their modest two-game win streak.
The Warriors missed David Lee. Lee, who
averages 19.1 points and 9.8 rebounds, has
been getting anti-inflammatory injections
before each game in his ailing shoulder since he
sprained it Jan. 20 against Indiana. He had 22
points and 11 rebounds Thursday in a win over
the Clippers, but the shoulder and his strained
left hip make it difficult to play back-to-back
games.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PHOENIX — College basketball
had become a wrestling match,
bogged down by grabbing, push-
ing and the occasional takedown.
Scoring was down, shooting
percentages, too, and the games
often had the flow of rush-hour
traffic.
Hoping to open the game back
up, the NCAA tweaked its rules
this season, the emphasis on pre-
venting defenders from impeding
offensive players’ progress with
hand checking and arm barring.
After an initial adjustment peri-
od filled with hard-to-watch
games, the new rules seem to be
having the desired effect, increas-
ing scoring while giving the
games better offensive continuity.
“We’re very encouraged,” NCAA
Division I basketball committee
chairman Ron Wellman said. “If
you look at every offensive statis-
tic, they have improved this year
and that’s a result of the new inter-
pretation of the rules or the
enforcement of the freedom of
movement principles.”
The changes were put in place
after scoring in Division I basket-
ball dropped to 67.5 points per
game in 2012-13, the lowest since
1951-52 — long before the shot
clock and 3-point shot were added.
It was the fourth straight season it
had decreased.
Shooting percentages and
assists were down, and 3-point
shooting was the lowest since the
arc was added in 1986.
With the number of foul calls
also in decline, the NCAA looked
at altering its rules in an attempt
to decrease physical play.
No more hand-checking, two
hands on an opponent, arm bars or
jabbing.
There also was a big change in
the block-charge call, requiring
the defender to be in place before
the offensive player has started his
upward motion to attempt a shot or
pass. Previously, the defender had

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
the future of the quarterback position in a
sport that has become ever more dependent
on the passer.
In other words, we have the classic pock-
et passer emblematic of the old guard — that
would be Peyton Manning, of course, and
no quarterback has ever had a more prolific
season.
And we have the quick-footed, quick-wit-
ted scrambler in Russell Wilson represent-
ing for the millennials such as Robert
Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton,
even Andrew Luck.
Seattle’s miserly defense wants to force
Manning into uncomfortable territory,
which basically means anywhere outside
the passing pocket. Denver’s D will be
intent on giving Wilson a taste of claustro-
phobia by keeping him hemmed in the
pocket.
Obviously, both QB approaches work for
their offenses, or else these two teams
wouldn’t each be 15-3, top seeds in their
conferences and facing off for the champi-
onship. The quarterback differences — aside
from age, time of service in the pros, or
even their height (Manning at 6-foot-5 is
about 6 inches taller than Wilson) — make
this Super Bowl even more intriguing.
It’s all in the styles.
“They both have different styles,”
Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase
said in perhaps the biggest understatement
during a week of hyperbole. “But mentally
it sounds like Russell’s kind of heading in
that direction of what Peyton’s done with
his career as far as being a very intelligent
quarterback and using the tools of his game
to his advantage.”
But they are entirely different tools, and
the question becomes which set of tools
will fit the NFLbest if it continues to evolve
into a light-up-the-scoreboard game?
There will always be a place in anyone’s
starting lineup for a Peyton Manning, who
is in the conversation for greatest quarter-
back in history regardless of whether he
adds a second Super Bowl ring on Sunday.
Teams will simply construct their offense
around a talent like that.
Whether most teams will stick with con-
vention or choose the route the colleges —
the NFL’s farm system — have gone, build-
ing around mobile, creative and elusive
passers such as Wilson, won’t be decided by
who wins at the Meadowlands. But it could
play a significant role in a copycat league.
The evaluation systems won’t change no
matter what species of quarterback is preva-
lent in the pros.
“As a talent evaluator for college and even
free agency, the toughest thing to evaluate
is process,” Broncos quarterbacks coach
Greg Knapp said. “Can the guy process in
the pocket during the heat of battle?”
Everyone knows Manning has had that
skill throughout his career, and Wilson has
provided strong evidence in his two NFL
seasons that he’s got it, too.
“Peyton might be one of the best I’ve ever
been around that can process, ‘Ok, I’ve got
these tools to use, and in 10 seconds I’ve
got to make a decision, and execute in less
than four,”’ Knapp added.
Wilson’s multi-faceted abilities on the
field might differ in method to Manning’s ,
but Carroll sees many similarities off the
field.
“He’s an incredible competitor in every
way,” Carroll said of his quarterback, who at
25 is 12 years younger than Manning. “In
preparation, in game day, he’s the epitome
of what you want in your competitor. He’s
got tremendous work habits. He’s got
extraordinary athleticism. He’s got a gener-
al all-around savvy that allows him to make
great decisions under pressure.
“He’s extremely confident, too, so no
matter what is going on, he’s not going to
waver in his focus and ability to handle
things.”
Manning believes elements of all styles
will always be in demand.
“I think I could describe the perfect quar-
terback. Take a little piece of everybody, ”
he said. “Take John Elway’s arm, Dan
Marino’s release, maybe Troy Aikman’s
dropback, Brett Favre’s scrambling ability,
Joe Montana’s two-minute poise and, natu-
rally, my speed.”
After the laughter stopped, Manning con-
tinued:
“I could take a piece of everyone, of some
of my favorite quarterbacks, and I could take
30 traits from different guys, and put them
in that perfect quarterback.”
But will that perfect QB in years to come
feature more of Manning and his mold or of
Wilson and his ilk?
Sunday’s game could provide a glimpse
into that future.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ST. LOUIS — A company tied to St. Louis
Rams owner Stan Kroenke has purchased a
prime piece of land in the Los Angeles area amid
speculation the NFL franchise is considering a
return to the city it left for the Midwest nearly
two decades ago.
Team officials on Friday provided a written
statement confirming the recent purchase of a
60-acre site in Inglewood, adjacent to the shut-
tered Hollywood Park racetrack. The Los
Angeles Times first reported the purchase.
“As real estate developers, the Kroenke
Organizations are involved in numerous real
estate deals across the country and North
America,” the statement said. “While we can
confirm media reports that we recently pur-
chased land in Inglewood, as a private company
we don’t typically discuss our plans for com-
mercial or residential investments. We have yet
to decide what we are going to do with the prop-
erty but we will look at all options, as we do
with all of our properties.”
The property is three miles east of Los
Angeles International Airport runways and
sprawls between the newly renovated Forum
concert venue, former home of the Los Angeles
Lakers, and Hollywood Park, which closed Dec.
22 after 75 years of horse racing. The latter 260-
acre site is slated for development of 3,000
housing units, commercial space and parks.
The land was previously owned by Wal-Mart,
which hoped to build a superstore there but could
not win local voter approval for the project.
Kroenke is a former Wal-Mart board member
who is married to the daughter of company co-
founder Bud Walton and continues to build
shopping centers for the retailer.
Los Angeles has lacked an NFL team since
both the Rams and Raiders left in 1994. The
Rams can break their 30-year lease in St. Louis
after the 2014 season — a decade early — but
have said little about their plans.
The Rams’ lease requires the Edward Jones
Dome to remain among the top quarter of the 32
NFLstadiums, based on various criteria. The St.
Louis Convention & Visitors Commission,
which manages the dome, last year offered a
$124 million improvement plan that included a
bigger scoreboard and better club seating, with
the Rams paying slightly more half those
costs.
The team countered with a far more ambitious
proposal that called for a new roof with a sliding
panel and a bevy of improvements that would
keep the city convention center in the dome
closed for three years. City leaders rejected $700
million in publicly funded upgrades sought by
the team.
Speaking in New York before Sunday’s Super
Bowl, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said
the league was informed of the Kroenke pur-
chase and noted that any stadium development
plan would require approval from two-thirds of
the NFL’s 32 owners. He later pointed out that a
franchise relocation to Los Angeles would
require approval of three-fourths of team own-
ers.
“We’re aware of it,” Goodell said. “There are
no plans, to my knowledge, of a stadium devel-
opment. Anything that would require a stadium
development would require multiple votes of the
membership.”
Goodell cautioned against “overreacting” to
the Kroenke land purchase, saying “we should
make sure we do what’s necessary to continue to
support the team locally, which the fans have
done in St. Louis. And make sure we can do
whatever we can to make sure that team is suc-
cessful in the St. Louis market.”
Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he thinks
“it’s unfortunate that a generation of fans have
grown up without” a team in Los Angeles.
“We definitely want a team in L.A. ... We need
to make sure we have the right owner and the
right facility, and until at least 24 owners feel
that, we won’t have it,” Kraft said in New York.
“Just personally, I would like to see a team in
L.A. as soon as possible.”
Yusef Robb, a spokesman for Los Angeles
Mayor Eric Garcetti, said the purchase of the
Inglewood parking lot was “a commercial prop-
erty deal that we aren’t going to speculate on.”
Over the years, proposals — some complete
with elaborate renderings — have been floated
for NFL stadiums in the cities of Carson,
Irwindale and Industry, at the Rose Bowl in
Pasadena, in a remodeled Los Angeles Memorial
Coliseum and near Dodger Stadium.
Most recently, Los Angeles city leaders sup-
ported a plan by the sports and entertainment
company AEG to build a $1.5 billion, 72,000-
seat stadium called Farmers Field near down-
town’s Staples Center and the LALive and con-
vention center complexes. In an interview ear-
lier this month, Garcetti said he was eager for an
NFL team to return to Los Angeles but made
clear his priority is improving the city’s con-
vention center.
Company tied to Rams owner Kroenke buys L.A. land
“As real estate developers, the Kroenke Organizations are involved in
numerous real estate deals across the country and North America.
… We have yet to decide what we are going to do with the property
but we will look at all options, as we do with all of our properties.”

y now, most of my high school
peers and I have our driver’s
licenses. We once dreamed of the
day we would drive off in a car and arrive
somewhere on our own instead of getting
dropped off by our parents. We pictured our-
selves cruising down El Camino Real with
our friends; of being able to go anywhere
we want, any time we want; parties, the
beach, the mall — they
would all be in our reach;
we would literally be
driving down Highway
1, wearing our aviator
sunglasses with the con-
vertible top down, lis-
tening to the radio.
Suffice to say, this hasn’t
happened yet, and the
whole driving experience hasn’t quite lived
up to those expectations. What happened
along the way? Turns out, this newfound
freedom also comes with newfound respon-
sibility.
There are many laws regarding teens and
driving, including with whom we can and
cannot drive and what times we can be on
the road. The most irrational rule to me is
that for the first year after obtaining a driv-
ers’ license, 16- and 17-year-olds can’t
drive anyone else unless it is a parent or
legal guardian, licensed driving instructor,
person over 20 who has held a license for
at least four years, or an immediate family
member. This rule has inconvenienced me
and my friends many times — I understand
how a car full of kids could be distracting,
especially if you don’t have a lot of experi-
ence driving, but what’s one friend going
to do? In fact, having someone else in the
car can be extremely helpful. Apassenger
can read directions aloud so you never have
to take your eyes off the road, or warn you
about someone backing out of a driveway
who isn’t looking behind them.

Mikhail Baryshnikov was one of the great-
est male ballet dancers of his time. Now that
he’s in his 60s, he has taken his talents to
other ventures, such as his Baryshnikov
Productions.
Most recently, he’s starring in the venture’s
“Man in a Case,” adapted from two 1898 short
stories by Anton Chekhov and presented by
Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
In the first story, “Man in a Case,”
Baryshnikov plays Belikov, a teacher of
Greek who’s so rigidly moralistic that he
casts a pall over everything and everyone.
He briefly comes out of his shell when he
meets Barbara (Tymberly Canale), the out-
going sister of a newly arrived teacher,
Kovalenko (Aaron Mattocks).
Unfortunately for Belikov, the relationship
doesn’t work out. In the second story,
“About Love,” Baryshnikov plays a lonely
man who falls in love with a friend’s wife,
also played by Canale. Even though the
attraction is mutual, the relationship ends
sadly because she leaves when her husband
takes a job in a different town.
The stories were adapted and are directed by
Paul Lazar and Annie-B Parson, founders of
Big Dance Theater. Parson also choreo-
graphed the interactions between
Baryshnikov’s and Canale’s characters.
Much of the production features effective
live and recorded videos designed by Jeff
Larson. He and sound designer Tei Blow do
their work while seated at a long table onstage
(set by Peter Ksander with lighting by
Jennifer Tipton and costumes by Oana Botez).
Sitting with them most of the time are the
show’s other two actors, Paul Lazar and Chris
Giarmo, who also serves as music director and
sometimes plays accordion.
The show runs about 75 minutes with no
intermission. Despite the creative staging
and multimedia and despite fine performances
by the cast, the show is only mildly interest-
ing. It’s difficult to care much about
Chekhov’s characters.
“Man in a Case” runs through Feb. 16 in
Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s Roda Theatre,
2015 Addison St., Berkeley. For tickets and
information call (510) 647-2949 or visit

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES — Adorably wide-eyed, fluffy and in need
of a loving home is an unusual description for a football
player.
But it’s perfect for the gridiron stars of Hallmark
Channel’s “Kitten Bowl,” an event that aims to both enter-
tain viewers and inform them about animals consigned to
shelters.
“The plight of these animals is so sad and really needs”
attention, said Bill Abbott, president and CEO of the chan-
nel’s parent company, Crown Media, and the driving force
behind the inaugural Kitten Bowl. “It is an awareness
issue.”
The three-hour show airs at noon ESTSunday, followed by
repeat showings on what the channel is labeling “Su-Purr
Bowl Sunday” for those uninterested in the real Super Bowl
on Fox. The Kitten Bowl isn’t the only game in which the
fur flies: “Puppy Bowl,” the granddaddy of the genre, marks
its 10th year Sunday on Animal Planet with its own rescue
dogs, kittens and, this year, penguin co-stars, who aren’t up
for adoption.

YOU’LL BE WORKIN’ ON
THE RAILROAD: BE AN
ENGINEER AT THE NEVADA
NORTHERN RAILWAY MUSE-
UM IN ELY. The biggest
exhibits move at the Nevada
Northern Railway Museum in Ely,
where adventure awaits those who
come to experience the golden age
of railroading during Railroad
Reality Week. Participants can
stay in a bunkhouse, work in the
shop and savor the dirt and the
grime as they learn train opera-
tions. Students rotate through the
positions of engineer, brakeman
and switchman, becoming part of
a cohesive crew that moves the
rolling stock from track to track
in the yard and then out onto the
open rails. It’s a hands-on and
intense immersion in what it takes
to keep a railroad running.
Railroad Reality Week takes
place at the Nevada Northern
Railway Complex, the best pre-
served, least altered and most com-
plete main yard remaining from
the steam railroad era. The
Complex was established in 1905
to support the Ely area’s then
booming copper mining, and
escaped modernization because of
the cessation of mining opera-
tions and its geographical remote-
ness. The railyards were listed as a
National Historic Landmark in
2006.
Mark S. Bassett, Executive
Director of the Nevada Northern
Railway Museum, said, “Nevada
Northern Railway is the sole sur-
vivor from a grand era in western
history. Now a National Historic
Landmark, here time travel is pos-
sible. Here the steam locomotive
still rules the rails. You can expe-
rience first-hand what it took to
move a mountain of copper. In the
shops, watch as century old tech-
niques are still being used today.
Climb aboard a steam-powered
passenger train and experience
travel from the last century. If
you’re adventurous, you can Be

Reality Week and help run the rail-
road for a week.”
MUSEUM PARTICULARS.
The Nevada Northern Railway
Museum is located at 1100 Ave.
“A” in Ely, Nev. The Museum col-
lection includes three steam loco-
motives, an electric locomotive
and several diesel-electric loco-
motives, as well as maintenance
equipment and freight and passen-
ger rail cars. The Museum holds an
extensive fleet of its original
rolling stock, including passen-
ger cars, wood-side box cars, ore
cars and work trains, all dating
from the 1910s. It has the oldest
operating tank car and the oldest
operating coal-fired steam crane
on any American railroad. In addi-

If you’ve seen the trailer for “Labor Day, ”
Jason Reitman’s film based on the novel by
Joyce Maynard, then you’ve caught a
glimpse of a new breakout star, who threat-
ens to upstage even the estimable Kate
Winslet and Josh Brolin.
No, we’re not talking about young new-
comer Gattlin Griffith, though he gives a
lovely performance.
We’re talking about the peach pie.
Seldom has a baked good assumed so
prominent an onscreen role as in this film,
where it serves both as catalyst and as
metaphor, for, um, sex. Plenty of movies
have displayed food worshipfully, but this
scene more aptly recalls that moist clay on
the potter’s wheel in “Ghost,” where ceram-
ics were quite beside the point.
Alas, both that clay and this pie hold
together better than “Labor Day” does.
Reitman is a talented filmmaker, as you’ll
know if you’ve seen “Juno” or “Up in the
Air,” to name just two. But those movies
had key elements that “Labor Day” does
not: Humor, and edge.
It’s understandable why there’s no humor
here; it’s the story of a seriously depressed,
divorced mother and her preteen son, and
how their lives intersect one summer with
an escaped convict, for a Labor Day week-
end that will change all of them. Not much
comedy there.
But the lack of edge or irony is more seri-
ous. Reitman is so sincere in his presenta-
tion of this tale that we feel rather smoth-
ered by it. It doesn’t help that the narration
— by Tobey Maguire, as the grown-up son
looking back — is often unnecessary,
pounding in a point that we already got.
And the prominent flashbacks, while
occasionally useful, are also downright
confusing at times. They make you want to
go home and read the book, because it
becomes clear that a book would do so much
better a job of fleshing out these characters
— and more importantly, explaining their
actions.
None of this takes away from the very
appealing performances of Winslet and
Brolin, not to mention the sensitive
Griffith. At times, you don’t even care that
you don’t quite believe what they’re doing.
You’re just enjoying watching them do it.
Winslet plays Adele, a mother whose
depression makes her almost a hermit in her
cluttered home in a New England town (gor-
geously evoked in its summer glory by cin-
ematographer Eric Steelberg.) We meet her
and her seventh-grade son, Henry, as
they’re embarking on a shopping trip for
school clothes.
At the store, they’re approached by a mus-
cular, menacing man with a bloody wound.
He asks them to take him home and let him
rest. “Frankly, this needs to happen,” he
says.
At home, Frank ties Adele to a chair. But
from there, he departs from our precon-
ceived notions of escaped-convict behav-
ior, making a pot of chili that Rachael Ray
would love, and spoon-feeding it to Adele.
As the weekend proceeds, Frank, who we
learn was convicted of murder long ago,
fixes the squeaky floorboard. He cleans the
gutters and irons the clothes.
It gets better yet. When a neighbor deliv-
ers ripe peaches, Adele’s ready to throw
them away, but Frank has another idea: bak-
ing the best-looking pie you’ve ever seen.
“I want to talk about crust,” he tells mother
and son, giving little tips like how crucial
the salt is. Watching the pie rise in the
oven, we want nothing more than to reach
in and touch it. We wonder if there’s any
vanilla ice cream around...
Oh right, the movie. Well, it’s not hard to
see how attractive Frank seems to Adele.
Still, things move awfully, even implausi-
bly fast.
The drama heightens as we learn more
about why Adele suffers the way she does,
and why Frank ended up in prison. Thanks
to some heartfelt acting — particularly
from Winslet — we stay focused.
But it’s hard not to feel that this movie
could have been so much better than it
turned out.
Something we won’t say for that pie. That
pie is perfect.
“Labor Day,” a Paramount Pictures
release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion
Picture Association of America for “themat-
ic material, brief violence and sexuality. ”
Running time: 111 minutes. Two and a half
stars out of four.
‘Labor Day,’ as mushy as a warm peach pie
By Jake Coyle

TORONTO — Before a reporter has bare-
ly entered the room, Kate Winslet has
defused any formality. After shedding her
heels, she announces her exasperation
about actors (especially herself) talking
about themselves.
“Don’t you find yourself nodding off and
going, ‘Here they go again’?” she asks. “I
know that I love my job. I (expletive) hate
talking about how much I love my job
because how can you talk about that with-
out sounding really indulgent?”

Another reason why I question the logic
of the “no friends” rule is our precious
environment. Are we not trying to lower
car emissions? The less we carpool with
friends, the more cars there will be on the
road that are releasing exhaust and pollut-
ing the air.
Perhaps the most stressful part about
driving is knowing that one’s actions
behind the wheel affect not only the other
people in one’s car, but also all of the peo-
ple in the surrounding cars. By this time,
we’ve all seen too many videos about the
tragic effects of texting and driving and not
wearing one’s seat belt, so we should know
better.
While being able to drive does have its
perks, such as not having to rely on other
people for rides, being able to leave
whenever one wants, and being able to
rock out on a whole new level, driving
actually limits our freedom. When I was
a little kid, I asked my parents if I could
go outside to play and come inside when
it got dark. Now I have to ask them if I
can drive to my friend’s house, and then
they want to know if we will be staying
there and when I will be home and so
on. The independence that comes with
driving can be a good and bad thing.
With a driver’s license, we can make it eas-
ier for our parents and guardians by getting
places without needing them to drive us
but, on the other hand, we have no one to
blame when we are late to school. Not to
mention that driving a car means mainte-
nance, filling the tank and keeping it
clean.
The responsibilities and my questions
about the rules of driving remain, but I
respect the process of being a good, safe
driver. Driving hasn’t mirrored an Audi or
Porsche commercial for me and my friends
yet, but we still have our dreams.

bowl, for four hours.
For Abbott, the Kitten Bowl is serious
business. He’s a longtime supporter of the
North Shore Animal League America, a
leading no-kill shelter that joined the
Hallmark Channel in presenting the event.
The shelter teamed with Last Hope Animal
Rescue and Rehabilitation to provide and
care for the 71 kittens featured.
The goal is to provide an upbeat look at
how to reduce the number of animals that
end up homeless, Abbott said.
There’s a happy ending for the bowl kit-
tens, whose names include the playful
Crazy Legs and Chase, as well as puns like
Dan Furrino, for former Miami Dolphins
quarterback Dan Marino.
All of the felines used in taping last
October have been adopted, Abbott said.
They worked hard for the opportunity,
including two playoff games and the cham-
pionship match, and consented to inter-
views, presumably subtitled for non-cat
speakers.
An online Feline Fantasy League features
digital trading cards and adoption stories.
The Kitten Bowl is hosted by North
Shore spokeswoman Beth Stern, wife of
Howard Stern, and John Sterling, official
radio voice of the New York Yankees.
Celebrity guests dropping by include
Regis Philbin, Kelly Rutherford and Carrie
Ann Inaba.
Although puppies and kittens are com-
peting only indirectly Sunday, cat-loving
Abbott isn’t shy about predicting who will
win viewers’ hearts.
“As wonderful as puppies are — and I’m a
dog person, too — they are not as cagey
and clever and just overall as entertaining
at the end of the day,” he said.

KITTEN
who grew up in a large, working-class fami-
ly outside London, has an uncommon can-
dor and easy uninhibitedness that has made
her both an engagingly down-to-earth per-
sonality and a naturalistic actress with quick
access to deep emotions.
Winslet was seven-months pregnant at an
interview last September at the Toronto
International Film Festival, where she
debuted “Labor Day,” a Jason Reitman-
directed drama opening in theaters Friday.
In December, she gave birth to a boy, her
third child and first with her third husband,
Ned Rocknroll, the nephew of billionaire
Richard Branson. (Winslet has a child with
each previous husband, Sam Mendes and
Jim Threapleton.)
Parenthood was a particularly obvious
conversation subject for Winslet, not just
because she was pregnant at the time, but
because she has recently strung together a
series of memorable, varied portraits of
motherhood. It’s no coincidence, she says.
“I have been a parent since I was 25,” says
the 38-year-old Winslet. “That’s a large
chunk of my adult life. Mother or father, it
transforms you completely.”
In “Labor Day,” based on the Joyce
Maynard novel, she plays a single mom,
Adele, with a 13-year-old son (Gattlin
Griffith) in a small New England town. An
escaped convict (Josh Brolin) upends their
domestic life when he kidnaps them and
hides out at their house. But it’s not terror
that follows: The convict is a gentle, wel-
come presence in a home that has lacked for
a man. Left by her husband after several
miscarriages, Adele had turned into a virtual
shut-in, but is slowly awakened again by an
unlikely love.
It’s a clear career pivot toward drama for
Reitman. But he also sees a commonality in
a tale of a kind-hearted convict following
films about a big-tobacco lobbyist (“Thank
You for Smoking”), a pregnant teenager
(”Juno”) and a guy who fires people for a liv-
ing (“Up in the Air”). “These apparently are
my heroes,” he says.
Reitman wrote the screenplay from
Maynard’s novel with Winslet specifically
in mind, and waited a year for her schedule to
open up. (He filled the gap with “Young
Adult.”)
“I don’t know another actress who knows
how to deal with this kind of brokenness
and vulnerability and make it so sensual,”
says Reitman. “There’re a lot of actresses
who can play broken people, but she does it
without judging them. She does them and
allows them to bloom at the same time.”
Though playing a mother in movies often
means being relegated to the outskirts of
the drama, Winslet’s characters have had
lives that aren’t defined solely by children,
but remain passionate, complicated individ-
uals.
In “Little Children,” she played an unhap-
py stay-at-home suburban mom drawn to a
neighborhood father. “Revolutionary
Road,” too, dealt with a loveless marriage
in the suburbs, with a kid on the way. The
play-adaptation “Carnage” presented a pair
of Brooklyn parents arguing over their
sons’ schoolyard fight, an evening that
steadily dissolves into chaos. (The parents
are no better, or are perhaps even worse,
than the children.)
But the HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce”
was Winslet’s greatest examination of
motherhood. She played a striving,
Depression-era woman separated from her
husband and heartbroken by a spoiled
teenager daughter.

always realistic. But you have to work
really hard and that’s what I’ve been
doing,” Schapelhouman said.
He was always attracted to the valor
of being a firefighter and the overarch-
ing call of helping people; it’s a 100-
year-old organization of people dedi-
cated to emergency preparedness and
response, Schapelhouman said. He
helped establish one of the state’s
urban search and rescue task forces that
took him to the front lines of some of
the country’s most poignant disasters,
Schapelhouman said.
Having never been on the receiving
end of emergency assistance, his acci-
dent heightened his gratitude for what
first responders and doctors do,
Schapelhouman said.
“I have an appreciation of what goes
on after a call,” Schapelhouman said. “I
was always part of the help, but never a
customer.”
He remains upbeat and even comical
at times. He recognizes the irony of
“what did me in was a ladder,” and
chuckles how he was found with the
power cutter still in his hand because he
knew better than to ever drop a tool.
He’s not adverse to risk but he’s always
been very careful, so when he awoke
after falling he said he could tell he was
in trouble.
“Between knowing something just
happened and I can’t move, laying in a
puddle of my own blood, I knew some-
thing was really wrong,”
Schapelhouman said.
His professional training served him
during his accident because his neigh-
bor was first on the scene and he guided
his neighbor through what to do and
what not to do, Schapelhouman said.
He was eager to get back to work and
set a goal of returning in four months.
He said he recognizes now that wasn’t
realistic. At times, he may have pushed
himself too hard and, while in rehab in
June, he had a setback and returned to
the hospital for another surgery,
Schapelhouman said.
Many said he wouldn’t go back to
work for at least a year but, with stead-
fast determination, he’s made tremen-
dous progress and is grateful to be back
serving the community,
Schapelhouman said.
He’s a hands-on jack-of-all-trades
who’s worked in construction, helped
remodel his home and worked on his
own cars. He’s comfortable on a roof
and well versed in climbing ladders,
Schapelhouman said. Some things have
changed since his accident, he’s had to
get used to directing and being courte-
ous when people try to help him do
things he wants to relearn on his own.
However, he remains dedicated to his
job and the success of the department,
Schapelhouman said.
The fire department is a “24-7, 365
shop” that never rests and, as was his
job before the accident, he makes sure
it’s a well-oiled machine on which the
public can depend, Schapelhouman
said.
“What do we need to do here so peo-
ple don’t need to think twice when they
call 911? So they know someone will
be there?” Schapelhouman said. “It’s
the part that a lot of people don’t see
and don’t need to see when they call
911. The biggest part is keeping it all
running.”
The Menlo Park Fire Protection
District has pulled through the reces-
sion and has money for capital
improvements. It will be rebuilding its
East Palo Alto station and he’s integrat-
ing new technologies into the depart-
ment. Schapelhouman said he’s now
more humble but continues with and
enjoys the same work he was responsi-
ble for before his accident.
“It’s all about partnership. The
strength is in the collaboration, the
finesse of working together, ”
Schapelhouman said.
He’s probably the only person in fire
service in a wheelchair but, with his
administrative duties as chief, it’s real-
ly about what you know and how well
you do it, Schapelhouman said.
His network of supporters has grown;
his neighbors, coworkers, San Jose
firefighters, doctors and his wife and
daughter have encouraged him through-
out his ongoing recovery,
Schapelhouman said. He said he contin-
ues to enjoy his service work, he’s now
able to drive himself with a special
vehicle and works hard to become more
independent. And he said he’ll continue
to fight.
“Being a firefighter, you just inher-
ently deal with difficult situations and
part of it is just digging deep within
yourself,” Schapelhouman said. “You
can’t focus on the things you can’t do,
focus on the things you can do. In some
way have a purpose, because people
that don’t have a purpose wither away.”

being able to use Fluc to order food to
my own house, from so many loca-
tions, became something I needed to
make a reality. ”
Ahmad said it’s pretty awesome to
have people demanding Fluc’s services
and the company is launching in new
places with high demand for Fluc.
Meanwhile, Eat24, provides a simi-
lar service to the Peninsula. The com-
pany, run out of San Bruno, differenti-
ates itself from others in that it’s
local, said Chief Marketing Officer
Amir Eisenstein. It provides the soft-
ware for ordering food online.
“It’s the perfect experience for peo-
ple who want to order online,”
Eisenstein said. “We do everything in
between, so they (restaurants) can do
everything they’re good at.”
Another company in the space is
GrubHub Seamless, which merged from
two separate companies this past sum-
mer. Combined, the brand connects
diners with approximately 26,500
restaurants for online and mobile
ordering across the country and in
London. In the first half of 2013, the
combined organization processed
approximately 130,000 orders a day.
Abby Hunt, director of public relations
for the service, said a big point of dif-
ferentiation is that it works with the
most restaurants. It’s also on more
than 350 college campuses throughout
the country, she said.
“It’s a great tool for students on cam-
pus,” she said. “We have food tracker
called Track Your Grub. The most
important question to the diner is
‘where is my food?’ It lets them know
exactly where their food is and, in
some cases, diners can see a map of
where their delivery driver is on the
way to their place. It adds this layer of
transparency that’s never been avail-
able to diners in the takeout space.”

tax increment revenue — including the
money exceeding the 20 percent set
aside — to the county controller.
The city planned to use the money to
develop sites on Bradford and Heller
streets which it absorbed as the rede-
velopment agency’s housing successor
agency. The money was also to help
with development of other affordable
housing projects.
In its suit, Redwood City challenged
the state Department of Finance’s label
of the $10.2 million collected under
the Legal Aid agreement as “uncommit-
ted funds.”
The city argued it had an obligation
to the community and the nonprofit to
keep the housing fund for its intended
purpose but Judge Allen Sumner ruled
otherwise.
City officials said they are consider-
ing whether to appeal the decision
which they called a legal setback in the
city’s mission to provide affordable
housing for residents.
“This is not just about Redwood City.
This is about local agencies’ ability to
create communities that people of all
incomes can live in. I do not believe
that the Legislature intended that we
should not be able to honor our com-
mitments under the Legal Aid
Agreement,” Redwood City Mayor Jeff
Gee said in a prepared statement.

into question. Give yourself some time to think.

unrealistic idea about your environment and your
current position. Be sure that you’re clear about
your range of obligations.

whatever is at the heart of the matter if you want to

careful if you choose to fix your own appliances. A
family member may be overindulgent.

delays may cause anxiet y today. Get all of your
papers in order carefully. Avoid insti tutions or
hospi tals i f at all possible.

may lead to a new opportunity. Be willing to make
any move that will broaden your horizons.

preparing materials for synagogues around
the country to study social justice issues
and bringing 3,000 people in for policy
and skills training programs. He also trav-
els a lot, spending about three months a
year outside of Washington, D.C., He
attends conferences, does keynote address-
es and travels to Israel regularly.
There are boundless opportunities for
young people to get involved in social jus-
tice issues, he said.
“I’m very proud of the fact Jews are dis-
proportionately involved in calls for
social justice,” he said. “They’re leaders,
donors, on boards, are elected officials, on
the Supreme Court and use their legitimate
democratic rights efficiently and effective-
l y. ”
Saperstein says that people can really
make a difference today and that they need
to since the world is at a crossroads with
issues like global warming and interna-
tional economic injustice.
“Decisions now affect the entire lives of
young people and we’re trying to get them
involved now,” he said. “Will they be the
audience watching or the authors? We
encourage them to be the authors and be
shapers of a more hopeful future.”
The rabbi would like to see more denomi-
nations work together more closely on
local, state and national issues.
“When we work together, we can really
make an impact on issues,” he said.
Saperstein has also served as co-chair for
the Coalition to Preserve Religious
Liberty and is on the boards of the NAACP
and People for the American Way. In 2009,
he served on President Barack Obama’s
Council for Faith-Based and Neighborhood
Partnerships, a volunteer advisory council
made up of 25 religious and secular leaders
and scholars.
The rabbi says he probably does close to
100 speeches and lectures a year. This most
recent lecture series features 35-minute
speeches, followed by 45-minute discus-
sions and run through Feb. 11. The Reform
Judaism movement is a liberal branch of
Judaism and focuses on ideas such as auton-
omy, modernity, universalism and the his-
torical-philosophical critique of religion.

during three years of below-normal rain and
snow.
“This is the most serious drought we’ve
faced in modern times,” said Felicia Marcus,
chairwoman of the State Water Resources
Control Board. “We need to conserve what
little we have to use later in the year, or
even in future years.”
State Department of Water Resources
Director Mark Cowin said there simply is
not enough water in the system to meet the
needs of farmers, cities and the conserva-
tion efforts that are intended to save dwin-
dling populations of salmon and other fish
throughout Northern California.
For perspective, California would have to
experience heavy rain and snowfall every
other day from now until May to get the
state back to its average annual precipita-
tion totals, according to the Department of
Water Resources.
“These actions will protect us all in the
long run,” Cowin said during a news confer-
ence that included numerous state and feder-
al officials, including those from wildlife
and agricultural agencies.
Friday’s announcement came after Gov.
Jerry Brown’s official drought declaration in
mid-January, a decision that cleared the way
for state and federal agencies to coordinate
efforts to preserve water and send it where it
is needed most. The governor urged
Californians to reduce their water use by 20
percent.
It also reflects the severity of the dry con-
ditions in the nation’s most populous state.
Officials say 2013 was the state’s driest cal-
endar year since records started being kept,
and this year is heading in the same direc-
tion.
A snow survey on Thursday in the Sierra
Nevada, one of the state’s key water sources,
found the water content in the meager snow-
pack is just 12 percent of normal.
Reservoirs are lower than they were at the
same time in 1977, which is one of the two
previous driest water years on record.
State officials say 17 rural communities
are in danger of a severe water shortage
within four months. Wells are running dry
or reservoirs are nearly empty in some com-
munities. Others have long-running prob-
lems that predate the drought.
The timing for of Friday’s historic
announcement was important: State water
officials typically announce they are raising
the water allotment on Feb. 1, but this
year’s winter has been so dry they wanted to
ensure they could keep the remaining water
behind the dams. The announcement also
will give farmers more time to determine
what crops they will plant this year and in
what quantities.
Farmers and ranchers throughout the state
already have felt the drought’s impact, tear-
ing out orchards, fallowing fields and truck-
ing in alfalfa to feed cattle on withered
range land.
Without deliveries of surface water, farm-
ers and other water users often turn to pump-
ing from underground aquifers. The state has
no role in regulating such pumping.
“A zero allocation is catastrophic and
woefully inadequate for Kern County resi-
dents, farms and businesses,” Ted Page,
president the Kern County Water Agency’s
board, said in a statement. “While many
areas of the county will continue to rely on
ground water to make up at least part of the
difference, some areas have exhausted their
supply. ”
Groundwater levels already have been
stressed, after pumping accelerated during
the dry winter in 2008 and 2009.
“The challenge is that in last drought we
drew down groundwater resources and never
allowed them to recover,” said Heather
Cooley, water program co-director for the
Pacific Institute, a water policy think tank
in Oakland. “We’re seeing long term, ongo-
ing declining groundwater levels, and that’s
a major problem.”
Many towns and cities already have
ordered severe cutbacks in water use.
With some rivers reduced to a trickle, fish
populations also are being affected. Eggs in
salmon-spawning beds of the American
River near Sacramento were sacrificed after
upstream releases from Folsom Dam were
severely cut back.
The drought is highlighting the tradition-
al tensions between groups that claim the
state’s limited water for their own priorities
— farmers, city residents and conservation-
ists.
Chuck Bonham, director of the California
Department of Fish and Wildlife, urged
everyone to come together during the crisis.
“This is not about picking between delta
smelt and long-fin smelt and chinook
salmon, and it’s not about picking between
fish and farms or people and the environ-
ment,” he said. “It is about really hard deci-
sions on a real-time basis where we may
have to accept some impact now to avoid
much greater impact later. ”

Egypt military: Airstrikes
kill 13 Sinai militants
EL-ARISH, Egypt — Egyptian military
aircraft pounded suspected positions of al-
Qaida-inspired fighters in the Sinai
Peninsula, killing 13 people, officials said
Friday, as fears rise over an increasingly
well-armed insurgency that is striking with
increasing regularity in the capital. In the
latest attack, bombs on a highway on
Cairo’s outskirts hit a police truck.
At the same time, protests by Islamist
supporters of ousted President Mohammed
Morsi brought further violence, with
clashes in several provinces.
In an eastern Cairo district, an attempt
by pro-Morsi protesters to commemorate
dozens killed in clashes a week ago turned
into new battles with police and pro-mili-
tary civilians that authorities said
involved fire by automatic weapons. The
Islamist protesters had tried to set up a
stage in Naam Square, blocks from the
fighting last Saturday, when civilians
descended on them, firing birdshot and
throwing stones, participants in the
protest said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BEIRUT — Fighting in Syria killed near-
ly 1,900 people, including at least 430
civilians, during the week of U.N.-hosted
peace talks in Switzerland, activists said
Friday. The death toll indicates that vio-
lence barely paused as the warring parties
met but struck uncompromising stances,
failing to reach any agreements that could
help resolve the conflict.
The figures were reported by the Britain-
based Syrian Observatory for Human
Rights. Its director, Rami Abdurrahman,
said the week’s bloody toll was about aver-
age at this point in the three-year conflict.
The number included at least 430 civil-
ians, killed by bombs, snipers, missiles,
and other causes. The rest were rebels and
forces loyal to President Bashar Assad. The
Observatory obtains its information from
activists on the ground, and also keeps a
running total.
The conference didn’t produce any tangi-
ble results, although connections made in
Switzerland are likely to develop into pro-
longed negotiations to
try to resolve the war.
The conflict began as
largely peaceful protests
against Assad in March
2011, but the uprising
since became an increas-
ingly sectarian civil war
that has killed more than
130,000 people. It has
forcibly displaced one-
third of the entire prewar population of 23
million, including over 2 million who
have flooded into neighboring countries.
Tens of thousands more are blockaded in
rebel-held areas, where Assad loyalists pre-
vent food and aid from entering to break
their resistance.
Among the most active of the rebel
groups are hard-line Sunnis linked with al-
Qaida, some of whom are blamed for atroc-
ities targeting minorities.
The violence has also crossed over into
Syria’s neighbor Lebanon. Shells fired by
Syrian government tanks exploded in
ravines and valleys of the mountainous
northern province of Akkar, killing one
Syrian living in Lebanon and wounding
several others, a Lebanese security official
said.
He said at least 50 tank shells hit in and
around eight villages on the border.
Observatory director Abdurrahman said
the shelling was likely a response to an
attack by rebel gunmen on the Syrian vil-
lages of Bahlawaniyeh and Ghida, whose
residents belong to the minority Alawite
sect to which Assad belongs. He said rebels
fired at the villages from inside Lebanese
territory, killing five men.
The Lebanese security official, who
spoke on condition of anonymity, said he
was not aware of any rebel movements in
Lebanese territory. He said the shelling
came in the context of a pitched battle in
Syria, near the border, where rebels were
attacking soldiers in an area known as
Zara.
It was impossible to immediately recon-
cile the conflicting reports.
Within Syria, government helicopters
continued to unleash barrel bombs packed
with explosives and fuel on rebel-held
parts of the northern city of Aleppo.
