City planning
widens scope
Officials expand downtown plan
into overall vision for Belmont
By Samantha Weigel
The effort to redevelop and revitalize
Belmont’s downtown has spurred city
officials to also take a look at the city’s
general plan, the guiding policy docu-
ment that outlines goals and which last
saw a revision in 1982.
“I think the city is years behind where
it could have been and, in my opinion,
should have been,” Councilman Charles Stone said.
The council directed staff Tuesday to solicit proposals
from consultation firms and allotted up to a $550,000
advance from its general fund to finalize policy documents
and conduct environmental impact reports and other studies,
said Community Development Director Carlos de Melo.
Those funds would eventually be paid back over time
through development, housing and environmental impact
fees, de Melo said. The council also approved an applica-

A new development that includes a hotel
and 884,344 square feet of office space
should be coming in the next few years to
South San Francisco’s Britannia Cove at
Oyster Point.
The City Council approved a develop-
ment agreement with Project Management
Advisors to construct
seven buildings of
offices, a full-service
hotel, 20,000 square feet
of retail including a
restaurant, a nine-story
parking structure, surface
parking and other on- and
off-site improvements.
The developers made
changes to the hotel and parking garage per
council recommendations.
Councilman Pradeep Gupta called it a
“milestone project” for the city.
“I’m very pleased with the changes to the
structure,” Gupta said. “It addressed issues
with the hotel design and garage. I’m really
excited about the project. … It’s the image
we’re trying to build for the area.”
At a Dec. 11, 2013, City Council meet-
ing, the council discussed concerns related
to the development of the hotel and the
parking garage design. The council contin-
ued the matter to a Jan. 8 meeting and again
to Wednesday night to allow the previously
completed hotel market studies to be updat-
ed and for revisions to the design of the
parking garage. Developers modified the

closing its Early Learning Center
School posed ‘significant burden on

By Angela Swartz
Citing management issues and opera-

University is shutting down the campus’
Early Learning Center May 31.
The announcement came Wednesday
from President Judith Greig in a letter to

Together since 1948, Ann and John
Scaduto are ringing in Valentine’s Day
at the same Chinese restaurant they’ve
gone to for 37 years.
Ann, 91, and John, 89, moved to
Millbrae since 1956 and said the key
to their marriage has been humor.
“If you don’t have a sense of humor,
there’s nothing,” Ann said.
John said she was gorgeous when
they met and still is today.
“I looked at her and she looked at me
and we can’t find anything better,” he
joked. “Then we said, want to try this a
little longer?”
On a more serious note, he has other
advice for the key to longevity in a
“Just remember, she’s number one in
life,” he said.
The two, who have three children,
five grandchildren and one great-grand-
child, met through Ann’s next-door
neighbor. At first, Ann ignored John.
Still, John, Ann and two other friends
planned to have a picnic one day in
Los Altos, but the area they planned to
go to was closed for remodeling.
“The owner came over and said come
on in anyway,” John said. “We went in
and used the swimming pool. I jumped
on the diving board and it threw me in
the air and I hit the water on my belly.
They were all laughing and that was the

Half Moon Bay pays
$573,221 for lobbyists
Facing an $18 million lawsuit settle-
ment payout over a controversial land
development, the city of Half Moon
Bay spent $573,221 in 2008 to lobby
for two state bills that ultimately
failed, city officials said the week of
Feb. 14, 2009.
The city has an annual
budget of $11 million. A
2007 federal judgment
and subsequent settle-
ment with the land owner
who filed suit had Half Moon Bay fac-
ing an $18 million bill due in August
2009. The $537,221 is a relatively lit-
tle amount compared to the time and
money invested in the legal issue over
the last 20 years, city officials said.
According to the California secretary
of state, Half Moon Bay paid close to
$1 million to three lobbying firms —
California Strategies Advocacy, Piper
Jaffray and Orrick Herrington and
Sutcliffe. The number reported to the
state is exaggerated because close to
half that money was paid to Orrick
Herrington and Sutcliffe for legal fees
regarding the settlement of the federal
DA charges 14-year-old
for attempted murder
The week of Feb. 14, 2009, prosecu-
tors charged a 14-year-old boy with
attempted murder and other felonies in
the alleged gang-related stabbing of a
man near the Redwood City train sta-
tion, giving the child the dubious dis-
tinction of being the youngest person
ever charged as an adult in San Mateo
Vladmir Santos, of Redwood City,
was also charged with acting for the
purposes of a gang, causing great bod-
ily injury and using a
knife in the Feb. 9,
2009 attack that left a
19-year-old man with
several stab wounds and
a punctured lung.
Members of the District Attorney’s
Office decided to charge Santos as an
adult only after extensive discussion
because of his age. The decision was
ultimately based on “the callousness of
the motive, the innocence of the vic-
tim and the viciousness of the attack,”
said then Chief Deputy District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
State deferrals worries county
San Mateo County could temporarily
withstand the plan to defer state funds
for up to seven months but officials
said the week of Feb. 14, 2009, that
drawing down from reserves unfairly
punishes the prudent jurisdiction and
advocates worried it wouldn’t adequate-
ly protect the most vulnerable popula-
tions needing government help.
“We will burn through our reserves
fairly quickly and then what?” asked
then Supervisor Rich Gordon.
The proposal was to send IOUs to the
state’s 58 counties instead of $89 mil-
lion in anticipated payments for food
stamps, child care, employment help
and other services local agencies pro-
vide to residents. The $83 million pay-
ment scheduled for Feb. 25, 2009, was
also in jeopardy, leaving counties to
decide if and how they will fill the gap
for state-mandated services.
For those in San Mateo County,
which was already struggling to stem a
growing structural deficit
and had a 10 percent
employee vacancy rate,
using its rainy day reserves
for the state’s fiscal storm was see as
Fears shake stocks
Investors sent Washington a mes-
sage the week of Feb. 14, 2009: They
won’t commit to stocks until the gov-
ernment commits to a plan.
Stocks ended lower Friday of that
week, pushing the Dow Jones industri-
al average to its lowest close since the
prior November and leaving it with a
weekly decline of 5.2 percent.
The gears were moving in
Washington. On Friday of that week,
the White House said President Obama
will outline steps to stem home fore-
closures the following Wednesday, and
the House passed a $787 billion eco-
nomic stimulus bill.

ly printed five years ago this week. It appears

Ahomeless 53-year-old veteran accused of
trying to fatally choke a Veterans Affairs
hospital worker over housecleaning will
stand trial for attempted murder.
Timothy Page Seith, 53, pleaded not
guilty Thursday to that charge along
with counts of assault and making crimi-
nal threats. He also was scheduled for a
May 19 jury trial.
Prosecutors say the 55-
year-old victim invited
Seith to stay with her for
a few weeks because she
knew he was a transient.
On Nov. 27, 2013, he
allegedly grew angry over
what he perceived to be
her lack of appreciation
for his housework and choked and threat-
ened her. She broke free and tried calling
911 but Seith knocked the phone from her
hand and began choking her again, accord-
ing to the District Attorney’s Office.
She was reportedly able to free herself a
second time and run for help. South San
Francisco police arrested him nearby.
Seith, who is in custody without bail,
faces up to 12 years in prison.

Prosecutors contend Andy James Lazaro
was definitely in a creek on Super Bowl
Sunday but it will be up to the courts to
decide if he is without the proverbial pad-
Lazaro, 22, is accused of drunkenly driv-
ing his pickup truck into San Mateo Creek
off Fourth Avenue near Highway 101 and
fleeing with an injured
passenger to his parents’
home. Responding
police officers found the
truck in the water and a
trail of blood leading
into a a neighboring res-
idential area. Lazaro
showed signs of being
under the influence but
refused to perform a field sobriety test,
according to prosecutors.
Lazaro’s 20-year-old passenger sustained
a cut to his hand in the crash and both men
were briefly hospitalized before Lazaro’s
arrest. He is charged with felony driving
while under the influence, hit and run for
fleeing the scene of the collision and resist-
ing arrest. He has pleaded not guilty and is
in custody on $50,000 bail.
Radio Shack robbed at gunpoint
San Bruno police are on the lookout for a

displayed a handgun and demanded iPhones.
The employees complied and he left on foot

is described as black, wearing dark clothing
and a red baseball cap, according to police.
San Bruno home burglarized
A home on the 2300 block of Whitecliff
Way in San Bruno was burglarized Thursday
afternoon, according to San Bruno police.
At approximately 3:12 p.m., a woman
reported she had left her house at about
12:15 p.m. and found the home burglarized
when she returned, according to police.
Anyone with any information is asked to
call San Bruno police at 616-7100 or email

Bay Area officials warn
of possible measles exposure
San Francisco Bay Area officials say a
University of California, Berkeley student
infected with measles could have exposed
others by attending classes and riding pub-
lic transit.
Public health officials said Thursday they
confirmed that the student in his 20s was not
vaccinated, and was likely infected with
measles during a recent trip abroad.
The student attended classes in Berkeley
and took BART trains last week, possibly
exposing thousands before his diagnosis.
Health officials say people who have had
measles before, or who are vaccinated, are
unlikely to be infected even if they have
contact with the contagious person.

Another flu death
in San Mateo County
San Mateo County health officials
reported another flu-related death on
Thursday, bringing its total to six and
adding to the Bay Area’s growing number
of fatalities.
In addition to the six deaths, the county
has had 20 flu-related ICU hospitaliza-
t i ons.
The six fatalities were all individuals
under age 65. Five had underlying medical
conditions and one did not. Five cases are
also confirmed as H1N1, or swine flu, and
the other case’s strain is not available.
The San Mateo County Health System
does not release any further identifying
information about the deceased including
age, date or location of death.
As of the last widely reported figures,
more than 200 people statewide are con-
firmed dead due to the flu and at least 30
people are in the Bay Area. The state only
tracks influenza deaths among people 65
and younger.
Regionally, the deaths include 10 in
Santa Clara County, five each in Alameda
and Contra Costa counties, three in San
Francisco County, two in Monterey
County and one each in Santa Cruz and
Solano counties.
The dominant strain this season is the
H1N1 strain which seriously affects
young and middle-aged people. Aswine flu
pandemic in 2009 and 2010 killed at least
150,000 people worldwide.
Local health officials continue urgi ng
people to get vaccinated against the flu.
San Carlos Charter Learning
Center names new director
The San Carlos Charter Learning Center
Board of Directors voted unanimously
Wednesday night to
appoint Stacy Emory as
school director.
Emory has been inter-
im and acting director,
after Christopher
Mahoney stepped down
as director for health
reasons. Emory has
been at the school for
20 years. She was one
of the original teachers at the school and
taught there for 10 years. When she
moved into administration, she was a sev-
enth- and eighth-grade math and science
teacher. She became the resource choreog-
rapher, which was later renamed director
of curriculum.
The learning center is a collaborative
public K-8 charter school.

SAN DIEGO — California homes sales
dropped sharply in January due to a season-
al slump and a lack of affordable homes on
the market, a research firm reported
There were 25,832 homes sold last month
— 26.1 percent fewer than in December and
10.5 percent fewer than January of last
year, San Diego-based DataQuick reported.
It was the slowest January for sales since
The December-to-January slump was nor-
mal, DataQuick analyst Andrew LePage
said, but the year-over-year dip was due pri-
marily to a lack of low- and middle-priced
“There’s demand, especially in the lower
end,” LePage said. “There’s just not inven-
tory. ”
“You still have some people who are
underwater, owing more than their homes
are worth” and they can’t afford to sell,
while some would-be sellers are simply
waiting for higher prices, LePage said.
At the same time, the number of fore-
closed homes hitting the market has
dropped, he said.
According to the latest figures available
from the California Association of
Realtors, the state had a three-month sup-
ply of single-family homes in December.
That’s up from a 2.6-month supply a year
earlier but well below normal. A normal
supply is considered five to seven months.
Tighter credit and rising prices also are
crimping sales.
The median home price of $353,000 in
January dropped 3.3 percent from December
but was up 21.7 percent from January 2013,
DataQuick reported.
In fact, the price of a home in any given
month compared with the same month a
year earlier has been jumping for nearly
two years. January was the 14th month in
which the year-over-year increase topped
20 percent.
Sales of higher-priced homes remained
healthy and were up from a year ago, LePage
The situation was similar throughout the
In the San Francisco Bay Area, 4,696
homes were sold in January, down 14.6 per-
cent from a year earlier.
The median sales price in the nine-county
region was $525,000, down 4.3 percent
from $548,500 in December but up 26.5
percent from $415,000 in January 2013. It
was the 22nd straight month of annual
price increases.
DataQuick reported Wednesday that
Southern California home sales fell to the
lowest January tally in three years, down
9.9 percent from a year earlier to 14,471
homes. The median sales price in the six-
county region was $380,000, down 3.8
percent from $395,000 in December but up
18.4 percent from $321,000 in January
State home sales fall in January

LOS ANGELES — Three former California
governors announced a proposed ballot ini-
tiative Thursday designed to speed up the
state’s lengthy death penalty process.
Former Govs. George Deukmejian, Pete
Wilson and Gray Davis said they were
launching a signature-gathering effort for
the measure that would limit appeals avail-
able to death row inmates, remove the pris-
oners from special death row housing, and
require them to work at prison jobs in order
to pay restitution to victims.
The former governors, appearing with
law enforcement officials at a news confer-
ence, made it clear they want executions to
begin as soon as possible. There are more
than 700 prisoners on California’s death
“Old age should not be the leading cause
of death on death row,” former Gov. Pete
Wilson said.
They agreed the death penalty system is
crippled by waste and inefficiency.
“We all know the death penalty system is
broken at the appellate level,” said former
Los Angeles County District Attorney
Steve Cooley.
His predecessor in that job, Gil Garcetti,
is leading the opposition to the initiative
and was a proponent of Proposition 34, the
2012 ballot measure that would have
repealed the death penalty in California.
The vote was 48 percent in favor and 52
percent opposed, one of the closest votes
ever on a death penalty referendum.
A statement from the former governors
said “Californians overwhelmingly reaf-
firmed their support for the death penalty”
with the vote on Prop. 34.

WASHINGTON — Former National
Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden
gained access to at least some classified doc-
uments he later disclosed by copying a pass-
word from a co-worker who has since
resigned, the NSA reported to Congress.
Snowden has previously said he did not steal
any passwords.
The unnamed civilian employee who
worked with Snowden resigned last month
after the government revoked his security
clearance, according to a letter that NSAleg-
islative director Ethan L. Bauman sent this
week to the House Judiciary Committee. A
military employee and a private contractor
also lost their access to NSA data as part of
the continuing investigation, Bauman said.
Bauman’s memo, dated Monday, provides
some of the first details about what authori-
ties said they have learned about how
Snowden retrieved so many classified docu-
ments before passing them to news organi-
zations. Top U.S. national security officials
have acknowledged they do not know many
files Snowden took before he fled the U.S. to
seek refuge in Russia.
Snowden, a former NSA contract systems
analyst, has denied that he stole computer
passwords or tricked some co-workers into
giving him their passwords. The NSA letter
suggested Snowden tricked at least one co-
worker and copied the employee’s password
without his knowledge.
The civilian NSAworker told FBI investi-
gators last June that he allowed Snowden to
use an encrypted digital key known as a
Public Key Infrastructure certificate to gain
access to classified information on NSANet,
the agency’s computer network.

PRIMM, Nevada — Awindy stretch of the
Mojave Desert once roamed by tortoises
and coyotes has been transformed by hun-
dreds of thousands of mirrors into the
largest solar power plant of its type in the
world, a milestone for a growing industry
that is testing the balance between wilder-
ness conservation and the pursuit of green
energy across the American West.
The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating
System, sprawling across roughly 5 square
miles (13 sq. kilometers) of federal land
near the California-Nevada border, formal-
ly opened Thursday after years of regulato-
ry and legal tangles ranging from relocat-
ing protected tortoises to assessing the
impact on Mojave milkweed and other
“The Ivanpah project is a shining exam-
ple of how America is becoming a world
leader in solar energy,” U.S. Energy
Secretary Ernest Moniz said in a statement
after attending a dedication ceremony at the
site. “This project shows that building a
clean-energy economy creates jobs, curbs
greenhouse gas emissions and fosters
American innovation.”
The $2.2 billion complex of three gener-
ating units, owned by NRG Energy Inc.,
Google Inc. and BrightSource Energy, can
produce nearly 400 megawatts — enough
power for 140,000 homes. It began making
electricity last year.
Larger projects are on the way, but for
now, Ivanpah is being described as a marker
for the United States’ emerging solar indus-
try. While solar power accounts for less
than 1 percent of the nation’s power output,
thousands of projects from large, utility-
scale plants to small production sites are
under construction or being planned, partic-
ularly across the sun-drenched Southwest.
The opening of Ivanpah is “a dawn of a
new era in power generation in the United
States,” said Rhone Resch, president of the
Solar Energy Industries Association, a trade

WASHINGTON — The sooner you start
explaining the world to your baby, the better.
That doesn’t mean flash cards for tots, or
merely pointing out objects: “Here’s an
orange. That’s a bowl.”
New research shows that both how much
and how well parents talk with babies and
toddlers help to tune the youngsters’ brains
in ways that build crucial language and vocab-
ulary skills — a key to fighting the infamous
“word gap” that puts poor children at a disad-
vantage at an even younger age than once
The idea is to connect words and mean-
ing, so the brain becomes primed to
learn through context: “Let’s put the
orange in this bowl with the banana and
the apple and the grapes.”
“You’re building intelligence through lan-
guage,” is how Stanford University psychol-
ogy professor Anne Fernald explains it. “It’s
making nets of meaning that then will help
the child learn new words.”
And forget dumbed-down baby talk:
Longer, more complex sentences are better.
“The advice I give mothers is to have con-
versations with your babies,” said Erika
Hoff, a psychology professor at Florida
Atlantic University. “Children can hear lots
of talk that goes over their head in terms of
the meaning, and they still benefit from it.”
The research, presented Thursday and
Friday at a meeting of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science,
comes amid a growing push for universal pre-
school, to help disadvantaged youngsters
catch up.

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

KABUL, Afghanistan —
Disregarding heated American
protests, Afghanistan released
65 accused militants from a for-
mer U.S. prison on Thursday,
despite warnings that the men are
dangerous Taliban fighters and
bomb-makers likely to return to
killing foreign forces and
The freeing of the men from the
Parwan Detention Center further
strains relations between
Washington and President Hamid
Karzai. The Afghan leader’s
increasingly anti-American rhet-
oric and refusal to sign a long-
negotiated bilateral security deal
has heightened uncertainty ahead
of the year-end withdrawal of
most international forces.
Outrage over Karzai’s decision
also mirrors the mistrust and
resentment that has developed
between the ostensible allies in
recent years. The souring of sen-
timent has often played out in a
tug-of-war over control of the
detention facility near the
American military’s Bagram Air
Field, about 45 kilometers (28
miles) north of Kabul.
Karzai reacted sharply to the
strong U.S. and NATO criticism
over the releases, saying it was
not up to foreign powers to deter-
mine Afghan justice.
“Afghanistan is a sovereign
country. If Afghanistan judiciary
authorities decide to release pris-
oners, it is of no concern to the
United States,” Karzai said at the
end of a summit with Pakistani
and Turkish leaders in the
Turkish capital, Ankara.

Commissioner Brennan
takes fishermen’s side
Having commercially fished for 55
years and being the oldest active fish-
erman in Half Moon Bay, I must stick
up for Harbor Commissioner
Brennan. I also lease one of the
unloading stations at the end of the
pier. After being hit by a 10-fold
increase in rent over the competing
ports of San Francisco and Moss
Landing, I found I had to attend the
San Mateo County Harbor District
My first meeting, I couldn’t believe
the total disrespect the other mem-
bers and harbor manager showed
Brennan. She would ask pertinent
questions to educate herself and the
audience. Most of the other commer-
sioners seem upset that she would ask
questions and not just vote with the
rest of them. She’s the only fresh
breath I’ve seen in the harbor for 20
years — a public servant who cares
about the public. While some com-
missioners are padding their retire-
ment with benefits, she chooses not
to. She’s the only commissioner I’ve
seen in a row boat inspecting the
underside of the dock to see any prob-
lems for herself. She questions why
the harbor needs expensive, luxurious
offices when a smaller office would
work just fine.
The final kicker is that the harbor
wants a percentage of all fish caught
by fisherman at Pillar Point Harbor.
I’m in charge of adding a missing
fisherman’s name on the plaque at the
harbor. The Harbor District is running
a marina. I feel they shouldn’t get a
percentage of the men’s and women’s
livelihood who untie their boats with
no guarantee they will return home.
Commissioner Brennan has taken
the fishermen’s side and I personally
give her all my support.

Obama’s promises
President Obama last week prom-
ised Americans there was not a
“smidgen” of evidence to indicate his
administration was using the IRS to
target Americans for their political
beliefs. Now how could President
Obama possibly make this promise
when there are at least four ongoing,
and so far incomplete investigations?
Then again this is the president who
also solemnly promised Americans
they could keep their doctors and
health plan.

Rockin’ Ross Foti
Love him or hate him, you’ve got
hand it to Ross Foti. The dude is old
school. How old? Well, consider
Ross’s letter “The true end of rock ’n’
roll music” in the Feb. 7 edition of
the Daily Journal. In his letter, he
argues that he hasn’t seen the serious
light of day since, by my estimation,
mid-November of 1956. The source of
all that is wrong with the modern
world? Why rock and roll music, of
course. Good Lord, can you imagine
what an evening at the Foti house-
hold must sound like? Who even
knew so much Ferrante & Teicher and
Lennon Sisters music even existed?
Unless music itself, like sex, is
inherently evil, placed here on Earth
by God only in order to see which of
us are worthy of his harps and clouds
and halos, etc.
Ross’s letter is a classic of an
almost lost genre. He identifies the
“pelvic thrust[ing]” so characteristic
of rock ’n’ roll’s effect on us hapless
humans, which leads inevitably to
“fornication,” “sexual immorality”
and the continuation of “Adam’s
rebellion against God.” He left out
one of my favorites riffs about “syn-
copated African rhythms which cause
young girls to spontaneously con-
ceive,” but I understand. After all, the
Daily Journal limits our word count,
and you’ve got to cut somewhere,
right? So rock on, Ross. You remind
me of one of my favorite H.L.
Mencken quotes, which I will para-
phrase here, defining “Puritanism” as
“the awful suspicion that somewhere,
somebody might be having a good

Ventura County Star
he state of California got
what it wanted Monday —
extra time to reduce prison
overcrowding, but with strings
We hope the administration of Gov.
Jerry Brown will make good use of the
two-year delay granted to the state by
a panel of federal judges. The three
judges are determined to reduce uncon-
stitutional overcrowding and improve
inmates’ medical and mental-health
In a real sense, the Brown adminis-
tration has little choice except to
make effective use of the additional
time. Why? Because the judges will
empower a “compliance officer” to
release inmates early if the state does-
n’t meet interim goals or falls short
of the final goal of reducing over-
California’s prison system holds
about 5,400 more inmates than the
limit set by the judges. They want the
population capped at 137.5 percent of
the system’s designed capacity, or
about 112,164 inmates.
In the state’s past efforts to address
the problem, authorities increased
prison space, sent some inmates to
prisons in other states and took other
steps that haven’t satisfied the court’s
Monday, the judges said there could
be no further increases in inmates
sent out of state. The judges said the
state should go ahead with other
measures including freeing several
categories of inmates such as those
incapacitated due to medical issues,
nonviolent offenders with enough
good-time credits and those age 60 or
older who’ve been locked up for 25
years or more.
It’s important to remember that
beginning in 2011, a key action by
the state involved shifting tens of
thousands of inmates to counties’ cus-
tody and supervision. Called realign-
ment, it represented a significant pol-
icy change.
Realignment placed heavy new bur-
dens on county government, requiring
the state to work in cooperation with
sheriffs, probation agencies and other
officials. The state must continue to
provide the necessary funding, train-
ing and other resources for sheriff’s
departments and probation agencies
to succeed with realignment.
As Gov. Brown said in his State of
the State address Jan. 22, “realign-
ment is bold and far reaching, but nec-
essary under the circumstances. And
local law enforcement has risen to the
occasion.” The state must do like-

Contract proposals
gain new traction
he eye-popping $526,820 payout to former San
Mateo city manager Susan Loftus has at least
one councilman thinking of revisiting an idea
he let drop last year because of a lack of council sup-
Councilman David Lim had proposed an idea that
would require the City Council
to approve any contract in a
public meeting over $200,000
in addition to the three — city
manager, city attorney and
finance director/treasurer —
over which the council has
purview. He also suggested
that any expenditure between
$25,000 and $99,999 be
brought before the council in a
public meeting. The idea, he
said, is to force the council to
think about even small line
items and to engender public
ideas on how best the city should spend its money.
Although the ideas will do nothing to eliminate the
perk Loftus earned as city manager, when she cashed out
more than 2,000 hours of unused sick leave, Lim said
his proposals may have some traction since they will
give additional oversight over contracts for high-salary
positions and for everyday purchases that add up. Lim
had thought about pushing the ideas after members of
the council resisted last year, but decided to hold off
since there was a lot on the city’s plate — particularly
with a management audit of the city’s Community
Development Department a top priority.
The council has a new member and may be more recep-
tive to such proposals after the Loftus payout situation,
although it is important to note that it is a slightly dif-
ferent, though extremely serious, issue. It was signed
off by the council in 2008 and included a perk that
allowed her to cash out more than 2,000 hours in unused
sick leave. City managers are notorious for not taking
time off, working long hours and not calling in sick. A
little institutional knowledge about Loftus’ work tenure
as deputy city manager would have indicated that she
fell in line with those habits and not including a cap on
the amount she could cash out could leave the city with a
large one-time payout.
But one thing is for sure, when the city hires its next
city manager (former Public Works director Larry
Patterson is holding the interim city manager position
for at least the next few months), there will be a cap on
that payout.
Asimilar situation occurred in Millbrae when former
fire chief Dennis Haag received $416,931 for his last
year’s pay because of unused time off. While both
Haag’s and Loftus’ numbers are large, one good thing is
that they do not count toward determining what their
pension will be. That amount is tabulated according to
base pay. Still, for Millbrae, whose council just decided
to ask voters to extend a fire suppression assessment
tax that would generate about $1.5 million a year, it’s
ironic that a large chunk of that amount is what it had to
pay out for Haag’s last year of employment with the
No one knows exactly why Christine Wozniak left the
Belmont City Council this week, so we are left with the
typical “family and personal” reasons. But one thing is
for sure, with former councilmembers Dave Warden and
Coralin Feierbach off the council, she was left without
two of her strongest allies. Wozniak knew what she was
talking about and had many of Belmont’s residents in
mind when she made decisions. I wish her the best.
Now, the council must choose how she will be
replaced. Her term is up in November 2015, so it might
be possible to appoint someone for the remainder of the
term. But that’s not likely. Another option would be to
have a special election. But those get costly. Abetter
solution would be to appoint someone to the position
and have them run for election in November for the
remaining one year of the term. That way, the council
saves money on a special election, but voters still get a
chance this year to weigh in.
Kirsten Mercer may have seemed like an obvious
choice since she was the next highest vote-getter in the
last election, but it seems like the new-look council
may want to go deeper into the city bench for someone

Big movers
By Steve Rothwell
NEW YORK — The stock market
rose for the fifth time in six days
Thursday as higher earnings from sev-
eral big U.S. companies helped
investors shrug off discouraging news
about jobs and retail spending.
Goodyear Tire & Rubber surged to
its highest level in almost six years
after the company’s earnings beat
analysts’ forecasts. CBS also jumped
after the broadcaster beat Wall Street’s
profit expectations and speed up its
stock buyback program.
Investors’ focus has returned to
company earnings after concerns
about growth in emerging markets
and the health of the U.S. economy
pushed the Standard & Poor’s 500
index to its lowest level in more than
three months at the start of February.
Analysts at S&P Capital IQ expect
that earnings at companies in the
index increased last quarter at the
fastest pace in a year.
“The momentum from earnings con-
tinues,” said Andres Garcia-Amaya, a
global market strategist at JPMorgan
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
rose 10.57 points, or 0.6 percent, to
1,829.83. The Dow Jones industrial
average climbed 63.65 points, or 0.4
percent, to 16,027.59. The Nasdaq
composite rose 39.38 points, or 0.9
percent, to 4,240.67.
Stocks also got a lift from deal
Time Warner Cable surged $9.50, or
7 percent, to $144.81 after the com-
pany agreed to be acquired by rival
Comcast for $45.2 billion in stock.
The deal would combine the top two
cable TV companies in the United
States. Comcast fell $2.27, or 4.1
percent, to $52.97.
The biggest gains in the S&P 500
were posted by utility companies.
Gains in these stocks suggest
investors are looking to play it safe.
Utilities don’t have the best growth
prospects, but they pay steady divi-
dends and operate in stable industries.
Stocks opened lower Thursday fol-
lowing lackluster reports on the U.S.
job market and retail sales.
The number of people seeking
unemployment benefits rose 8,000
last week to 339,000, the Labor
Department said. Economist had fore-
cast claims of just 330,000.
A separate report showed that cold
weather caused U.S. retail sales to
drop in January as Americans spent
less on autos and clothing and at
restaurants during a brutally cold
month. The Commerce Department
says retail sales fell 0.4 percent last
month, the second straight decline
after a 0.1 percent drop in December.
The stock market inched higher
throughout the morning. Major
indexes turned positive by late morn-
ing as investors assessed a handful of
encourage corporate earnings reports.
Goodyear Tire & Rubber surged
$2.77, or 11.5 percent, to $26.94
after it reported a big earnings gain.
Strong sales in the company’s core
North American market helped the tire
maker’s results.
CBS rose $2.76, or 4.5 percent, to
$64.61 after reporting fourth-quarter
earnings and revenue growth that
beat Wall Street’s expectations.
Advertising revenue was flat, but
there was growth in content licens-
ing thanks to the sale of shows such
as “Hawaii Five-O” for domestic
Despite the recent signs of stabi-
lization, the stock market is still
going through a pullback driven
largely by the Federal Reserve’s deci-
sion to cut back on its economic
stimulus program, said Barry Knapp,
the head of U.S. equity portfolio strat-
egy at Barclays.
The stimulus underpinned the stock
market’s rally last year, but policy
makers have reduced it at each of their
last two meetings. The Fed has scaled
back its bond purchases from $85 bil-
lion a month to $65 billion a month.
Typically, pullbacks that are
prompted by a change in Fed policy
last between two and three month and
push stocks lower by as much as 9
percent, according to Knapp.
Stocks rise as investors assess earnings

The MENLO PARK — You don’t
have to be just male or female on
Facebook anymore. The social media
giant has added a customizable option
with about 50 different terms people
can use to identify their gender as well
as three preferred pronoun choices:
him, her or them.
Facebook said the changes, shared
with the Associated Press before the
launch on Thursday, initially cover
the company’s 159 million monthly
users in the U.S. and are aimed at giv-
ing people more choices in how they
describe themselves, such as androg-
ynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender
fluid or transsexual.
“There’s going to be a lot of people
for whom this is going to mean noth-
ing, but for the few it does impact, it
means the world,” said Facebook soft-
ware engineer Brielle Harrison, who
worked on the project and is herself
undergoing gender transformation,
from male to female. On Thursday,
while watchdogging the software for
any problems, she said she was also
changing her Facebook identity from
Female to TransWoman.
“All too often transgender people
like myself and other gender noncon-
forming people are given this binary
option, do you want to be male or
female? What is your gender? And it’s
kind of disheartening because none of
those let us tell others who we really
are,” she said. “This really changes
that, and for the first time I get to go
to the site and specify to all the peo-
ple I know what my gender is.”
Facebook, which has 1.23 billion
active monthly users around the
world, also allows them to keep their
gender identity private and will con-
tinue to do so.
The Williams Institute, a think tank
based at the University of California,
Los Angeles, estimates there are at
least 700,000 individuals in the U.S.
who identify as transgender, an
umbrella term that includes people
who live as a gender different from the
one assigned to them at birth.
The change at Facebook drew
dozens of appreciative postings on
the company’s diversity website,
although there were some pointing
out the need to change relationships
beyond son and daughter, or asking
for sexual orientation options.
The move by Facebook represents a
basic and a yet significant form of
recognition of the nation’s growing
transgender rights movement, which
has been spurred by veteran activists
and young people who identify as
transgender at younger ages. The
Human Rights Campaign last year
found that 10 percent of the 10,000
lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender
youths it surveyed used “other” or
wrote in their own gender terms.
“Over the past few years, a person’s
Facebook profile truly has become
their online identity, and now
Facebook has taken a milestone step
to allow countless people to more
honestly and accurately represent
themselves,” HRC President Chad
Griffin said. “Facebook’s action is
one that I hope others heed in sup-
porting individuals’ multifaceted
The change to the gender selection
option is seen as a major step toward
acceptance for people who don’t self-
identify as male or female, but the
high-profile development seemed
senseless to those who believe in two
genders, no more.

Comcast strikes deal to buy Time Warner Cable
LOS ANGELES — With a single behemoth purchase,
Comcast is creating a dominant force in American entertain-
ment and presenting federal regulators with an equally out-
sized quandary: How should they handle a conglomerate that
promises to improve cable TV and Internet service to mil-
lions of homes but also consolidates unprecedented control
of what viewers watch and download?
Comcast, which was already the nation’s No. 1 pay TVand
Internet provider, says its $45.2 billion purchase of Time
Warner Cable will provide faster, more reliable service to
more customers and save money on TVprogramming costs.
If the acquisition is approved, Comcast will serve some 30
million pay TV customers and 32 million Internet sub-
But industry watchdogs say the deal will give the compa-
ny too much power and ultimately raise the price of high-
speed connections.
Google gets more
guarded about acquisition numbers
SAN FRANCISCO — Google is becoming more secretive
about its acquisitions as the Internet company hunts for
promising innovations and engineering talent to help
shape the future of technology.
The subtle change surfaced this week in Google’s 2013
annual report. Google Inc. didn’t quantify the total number
of deals that it closed last year in the regulatory filing, mark-
ing the first time that the Mountain View company has with-
held that detail since going public in 2004.

The South City boys’ soccer team may have
won the battle when it beat rival and host El
Camino 2-1 Thursday afternoon.
But the Colts may ultimately win the war.
El Camino came into the game atop the
Peninsula Athletic League’s Ocean Division
with an unbeaten record. South City, on the
other hand, was in second place. The stand-
ings don’t change with the Warriors’ win, but
things suddenly got a lot tighter. El Camino
needs a win next Friday against Hillsdale to
wrap up the division crown and earn the
league’s lone automatic Central Coast Section
playoff berth.
South City, however, can take solace in the
fact it re-captured the rivalry trophy that goes
to the winner of the two-game series between
the two teams. When the final whistle blew,
South City’s Alexis Olivares sprinted across
the field, hopped a small fence between the
field and the stands, raced up the bleachers and
into the press box to grab the trophy.
It’s the first time the Warriors have captured
the trophy in two years. It also means anoth-
er South City win, coupled with an El Camino
loss, would mean a co-championships
between the two teams.
“This is huge,” said South City captain
Danny Basulto, who scored both goals for the
Warriors. “Hopefully we can get a CCS spot.”
El Camino (10-1-2 PAL Ocean) was at a
slight disadvantage Thursday, playing its
third game in four days. The Colts had to work
hard to beat Mills Monday and Capuchino
Tuesday and simply ran out of gas against a
determined South City side.
“You could see (Thursday) our legs were
tired. We weren’t able to recycle (defensively)
after an attack,” said El Camino coach Ken
Anderson. “We couldn’t get back. We had
heavy legs.”
South City (9-2-2) controlled the game from
the outset, putting heavy pressure on the
Colts at every turn. The Warriors challenged
every ball and every pass, and won a majority
of the 50-50 balls. El Camino’s midfield dis-
appeared for long periods of time, either push-
ing too far forward or dropping to far back
defensively. All that opened space allowed the
technically skilled Warriors to knock the ball

Terra Nova wrestling dual meet in Pacifica
Thursday night, Terra Nova was clinging to a
30-29 lead going into the final match of the
As the final two combatants — Half Moon
Bay’s Evan Marschall and Terra Nova’s
Justin Persino in the 113-pound class — cir-
cled each other on the mat, looking for an
opening, the already raucous crowd raised
its level another notch.
As the Half Moon Bay fans broke into
chants of, “HMB! HMB! HMB!,” the Terra
Nova fans responded with, “TNT! TNT! TNT!”
It was a fitting end to a match that would
determine the Peninsula Athletic League Bay
Division championship.
When the final buzzer sounded, Marschall
had a 5-0 win to give his team a 32-30 victory
and the Cougars and their fans started celebrat-
ing an undefeated PALseason and their second
Bay Division title in three years.
“I couldn’t hear anything. All I heard was the
crowd,” said Marschall. “There were nerves.
But they went away once I started winning.”
After battling to a stalemate for much of the
first period, Marschall got a late takedown and
a two-point near fall in closing moments of
the period to take a 4-0 lead. He added a one-
point escape in the second period and then
rode out the win in the third period.

not have been any closer. Both teams recorded

Alot of Danny Mahoney early.
Then some Sean Watkins late.
And a jungle of Serra Padres in between.
Once again, the premiere rivalry game in
San Mateo County lived up to the hype
Thursday night as Serra closed out home
court West Catholic Athletic League action
with a thrilling 48-44 victory over St.
Ignatius in the heralded Jungle Game.
Sean Watkins nailed a fall away jumper
near the left baseline with time winding
down to give the Padres a four-point lead.
Watkins nailed the dagger at a time when the
Wildcats had all the momentum having
started the fourth quarter down 10 points.
“That’s what you want with a senior
leader,” said Serra head coach Chuck Rapp
about Watkins’ shot. “You spread the court
in front of him and let him make a play. It
worked out for us.”
Watkins was the savior on Thursday
night, considering it would have been an
epic meltdown for the Padres had the
Wildcats found a way to win. Serra only
knocked down two shots in the fourth quar-
ter — Watkins’ and another jumper by
Jimmy Wohrer. It was his bucket that gave
Serra a nine-point advantage with 1:32 left
in the game.
It was then that S.I. caught a bit of fire
behind Trevor Dunbar and Jaren Yang. The
two guards knocked down a couple of trifec-
tas and pulled the Wildcats to within two
points with 41 seconds left in the game.
St. Ignatius came into the contest one
game ahead of Serra in the WCAL standings.
And with the pressure mounting, Rapp put
the ball in the hands of Watkins. He
knocked down a pair of free throws and that
jumper late in the game to ice it for the
Padres and help his team pull even with the
Wildcats in the standings with one game
remaining on the round-robin schedule.

defensive effort of the year,” Rapp said. “I

‘Jungle Game’

U.S. has swept the podium in men’s
slopestyle skiing.
Joss Christensen soared to gold in the
sport’s Olympic debut, posting a score of
95.80 on Thursday to beat teammates Gus
Kenworthy and Nick Goepper.
The gold was the fourth for the U.S. in
Sochi, all won on the slopes of the Rosa
Khutor Extreme Park.
“I am shocked,” Christensen said. “I am
stoked to be up here with my friends.
America, we did it.”
In conditions better suited for a spring
break in the mountains than the Winter
Olympics, the 22-year-old Christensen was
by far the best. Each of his four runs scored
in the 90s. His first run in the finals won the
gold, and his second would have been good
enough to win silver.
The sweep is the third for the U.S. in
Winter Olympic history, joining men’s fig-
ure skating in 1956 and men’s halfpipe
snowboarding in 2002.
“It’s the kind of thing you don’t even let
yourself think about,” U.S. coach Skogen
Sprang said. “I still don’t believe it hap-
While the U.S. has struggled elsewhere in
the Sochi Games, things are just fine at the
Extreme Park, which was so warm on
Thursday that American Bobby Brown, who
finished ninth, completed his final run in
short sleeves.
The three medals gave the U.S. five in the
span of 15 hours. Snowboarders Kaitlyn
Farrington and Kelly Clark took gold and
bronze in the women’s halfpipe on
Wednesday night.
Christensen, from Park City, Utah, hardly
seemed intimidated as his sport was thrust
into the mainstream for the first time. The

OAKLAND — Golden State Warriors
coach Mark Jackson admits expectations
are something new to his team, and
they’ve done a poor job handling them
so far this season.
The pressure to live up to the lofty
standards they set is only expected to
build — especially on Jackson — as the
NBA’s marathon season heads into the
stretch run.
The Warriors (31-22), who talked
about contending for the Western
Conference title in training camp, are
tied for the final playoff spot entering the
All-Star break. While they’re one game
better than this time last year, it’s not
where most — including outspoken
Warriors owner Joe Lacob — thought
they would be.
“There’s pressure in my entire life,”
Jackson said. “There’s pressure to coach
a team. There’s pressure to try to become
a professional basketball player. There’s
pressure being a husband. There’s pres-
sure being a dad. There’s pressure being a
pastor. So this isn’t new to my guys. I
think what’s new to my guys is all of the
sudden the expectations, the bar has been
raised. It’s a process to learn how to han-
dle that, and I think that we’re figuring it
Any talk of contending in the West has
been put on hold. At this point, the
Warriors need to worry about simply
making the playoffs for the second
straight season.
Golden State is tied with Phoenix (31-
22) for the eighth seed in the West and
only 1 1/2 games ahead of Memphis (29-
23). The Warriors are also just five games
behind the surging Los Angeles Clippers
(37-18) in the Pacific Division, which
they had hoped to win.
“I like where we are,” Jackson said.
“And I like the fact that adversity will
allow this team to grow, to mature, to
stick together and look forward to the
second half.”
Aweek ago, the Warriors were relative-
ly healthy — which has been perhaps
their biggest obstacle the last two sea-
sons — but are now hoping to heal over
the break.
Center Andrew Bogut had not missed a
game all season because of an injury
until sitting out the last four with a
bruised bone in his left shoulder. Backup
center Jermaine O’Neal also missed the
past two games with inflammation in his
surgically repaired right wrist.
Both are expected to return when the
Warriors visit Sacramento on Wednesday
“I believe when we’re healthy, ”
Jackson said, “you could make the case
we have the best starting five or in the
discussion with anybody in basketball.”
That only makes more people wonder
why the Warriors have been so inconsis-
They won 10 in a row — with seven of
the victories coming on the road —
before dropping several games at home
to teams with losing records, including
Washington, Charlotte, Minnesota and
Denver. While such lapses occurred often
last season, more progress was expected
this year.
“We feel like we could be better,” said
point guard Stephen Curry, who will
make his first appearance in the All-Star
game when he starts for the West on
Sunday night in New Orleans. “Last year,
we were pretty happy where we were.
This year, we let games slip but still have
a grip on where we’re trying to go.
Morale is high. The vision’s pretty clear
of where we’re trying to go when it
comes to seeing ourselves, where we
stack up in the Western Conference and
what to expect down the stretch.
Confidence is high right now.”
Perhaps it should be.
Curry and the Warriors captured the
national spotlight late last season. They
finished with a 47-35 record to earn the
sixth seed in the West, upset Denver in
the first round and put a scare into the San
Antonio Spurs in the second round before
falling in six games.
With a brighter spotlight nationally
and an always fervent fan base in the Bay
Area, just matching that success will not
be celebrated the same way.
Not after bringing nearly the entire
roster back — minus reliable reserves
Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry — and sign-
ing free agent Andre Iguodala to a four-
year, $48 million deal that had many pre-
season prognosticators labeling the
Warriors serious Western Conference
championship contenders.
The Warriors have certainly showed
they have the ability to beat the NBA’s
Golden State has beaten Miami,
Oklahoma City, Portland and the
Clippers this season. And while the
Warriors will have a week to think about
LeBron James’ 3-pointer that lifted the
Heat to a thrilling 111-110 victory on
Wednesday night, it also reminded
Golden State it could hang with the two-
time defending champions, whom they
won’t play again this season — unless
both teams reach the NBAFinals.
“Hopefully, we see ‘em again,”
Iguodala said. “That’s the plan.
Warriors the feeling pressure
Golden State point guard Steph Curry, right, will play in his first all-star game this
weekend, but will need to up his game and those of his teammates if the Warriors
are going to be a serious contender in the WesternConference.

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Janie McCauley
OAKLAND — Five things to know about
the Oakland Athletics as they start spring
training camp:
NO PRESSURE: Yoenis Cespedes has
no problem making a
bold prediction at this
early stage: The A’s are
headed back to the play-
offs in 2014. Somehow,
he says, the overachiev-
ing, small-budget club
will find a way to do it
again — even if they’re
not the favorite.
These guys thrive on
the underdog role, even
as defending division champion for the sec-
ond straight year.
“I think we’re still trying to prove people
wrong,” center fielder Coco Crisp said.
A BULLPEN TO BEAT: With last sea-
son’s ALsaves leader, Jim Johnson, joining
an already stout bullpen, manager Bob
Melvin realizes how good he has it once his
starter is done.
With All-Star Grant Balfour gone to
Tampa Bay in free agency, the A’s would
have been comfortable having Sean
Doolittle or Ryan Cook handle the ninth-
inning duties. Then, they were able to
acquire Johnson in a December trade with
“This was one of the places I wanted to
be,” Johnson said.
He converted 50 of 59 save opportunities
in 2013, going 3-8 with a 2.94 ERA, and
was tied with Atlanta’s Craig Kimbrel for
most saves in the majors.
“Bullpen depth is something that every
team strives for,” Melvin said. “Not only do
we have it, we have it in numbers.”
CESPEDES’ SWING: The slugging
Cuban defector is determined to make more
consistent contact with a shortened swing
he insists won’t take away much of his
power, if any. Cespedes is determined to for-
get a frustrating second big league season in
which he batted .240 with 26 homers and 80
RBIs. He hit .292 with 23 homers and drove
in 82 runs as a rookie.
“It’s trying to maintain a certain approach
for the entire season that’s going to make
him more consistent,” Melvin said. “No
one goes through the season with the same
stroke all the time.”
Cespedes made big strides in September
and had another impressive playoffs, anoth-
er five-game division series defeat to
“The biggest adjustment for him is just
staying driven every day,” hitting coach
Chili Davis said.
CRISP AT THE TOP: As Melvin repeats
so regularly, the A’s start with Crisp at the
top of the order.
Last week, Crisp received a new two-year
contract through 2016 that adds $22.75
million in guaranteed money.
“There’s a reason Coco Crisp is still
here,” Melvin said.
Crisp is coming off a year in which he hit
a career-high 22 home runs and surprised
even himself with the display of power. He
hopes to steal more bases this year with
fresh legs.
“Hopefully Father Time doesn’t kick me
in the butt ‘til I’m in my 50s,” the 34-year-
old Crisp said. “I was a little beat up last
year with my legs.”
Stephen Vogt and John Jaso, Derek Norris
and Chris Gimenez.
The A’s have a strong competition for
catcher, and the reliable Vogt certainly did
his part in a surprising showing last season
— including the winning hit in Game 2 of
the ALDS against the Tigers.
Jaso was medically cleared six weeks ago
after missing more than half of last season
because of a concussion. He is eager to do
everything he can to get back on the field.
Jaso, making $2.3 million in 2014, didn’t
play again after sustaining a concussion
when he took a foul tip off his mask July 24
at Houston and complained of a headache.
He batted .271 with three homers and 21
RBIs in 70 games.
Norris became the youngest catcher to
start a postseason game in A’s history (23
years, 235 days), while Gimenez was
claimed off waivers from the Rays.
5 things to know about
the A’s going into camp
By ROnald Blum
TAMPA, Fla. — Derek Jeter pulled into the
parking lot of the New York Yankees’ minor
league complex on Thursday, walked out of
his gray Mercedes-Benz and waved a hand
holding a bottle of mineral water as about 50
fans applauded his mere arrival.
After taking batting practice in an indoor
cage and throwing on a field, he started to
drive out of the parking lot about 90 minutes
later — the car cleaned and polished, its silver
hub caps shining. He stopped and rolled down
the driver’s side window to sign photographs,
baseballs and other memorabilia for the first
dozen people or so who had waited in line.
Already the most adored player on the base-
ball team with the highest profile, the New
York Yankees captain figures to be the recipi-
ent of an ever-heightened level of adulation
during the next 7 1/2 months as he circum-
navigates the major leagues in a farewell tour
that could be called Pinstriped Parting 2 fol-
lowing Mariano Rivera’s emotional exit last
Asked whether he felt good about the deci-
sion he announced Wednesday, Jeter respond-
ed: “I do.”
But he didn’t want to get into an extended
discussion. New York opens its big league
spring training camp Friday, and position
players report next week, when Jeter is likely
to hold a news conference to discuss his deci-
“I’ll address it when we get over there the
first day of spring. It’s easier that way,” he
Jeter took the Yankees by surprise with his
Wednesday morning telephone call to owner
Hal Steinbrenner, and his Facebook
announcement later in the day jolted fans
accustomed for nearly two decades to the con-
stants of his hot hitting and cool demeanor.
Speculation began about a suitable replace-
ment: Hanley Ramirez, Asdrubal Cabrera and
J.J. Hardy are among the players eligible for
free agency after the season.
“I wish he’d have quit in ‘05,” Cleveland
manager Terry Francona said, laughing,
remembering Jeter’s many performances
against his Boston Red Sox. “If you’re a base-
ball fan, he is the walking example of what’s
good in baseball. You respect him so much,
and yet you want him to have as little to do
with the outcome of the game if you’re his
opponent — and that’s probably the biggest
compliment you can give him. He’s going to
find a way to beat you whether it’s on the
bases, on defense or at the plate.
Jeter back at it day after
announcing retirement
USA-1 women’s bobsled
in minor crash at Olympics
U.S. women’s bobsled team of driver Elana
Meyers and alternate brakeman Katie
Eberling crashed during a training run at the
Sochi Olympics on Friday.
After being briefly evaluated, Meyers and
Eberling made their second run as scheduled.
They completed the run in 58.11 seconds,
one of the fastest training times.
Training was briefly halted after the crash.
Women’s bobsled competes next week.
Meyers will be racing with Lauryn
Williams, who had the day off Friday.

coach Tom Baker expected.
“I had it seven matches to seven match-
es,” Baker said he projected before the meet
started. “Whoever scored the most points
was going to win.”
Both teams recorded three pins, which are
worth six points each. Terra Nova also had
four decision, compared to two for Half
Moon Bay,which are each worth three
The difference in the meet, however, were
the two major-decision wins the Cougars
picked up from Dante Del Porto at 126 and
Tristan Keller at 106. A major decision is
worth four points, which gave the Cougars
two extra points — the difference in the
Terra Nova (4-1 PALBay) had a 30-19 lead
after David Melton picked up a big win at
220 pounds over Half Moon Bay’s Marcus
Melton, who was originally slated to
wrestle at his normal 195-pound class,
moved up to face Sarabia, one of the best
220-pound wrestlers in the Central Coast
Section. Melton started fast, getting a take-
down and three-point near fall in the open-
ing seconds of the match, but the weight
discrepancy took its toll on Melton, who
was visibly winded as the match wore on.
Sarabia managed to pick up a couple of
escape points and had a two-point take-
down, but he could not catch up to Melton,
one of the top 195 pounders in the section,
who recorded a 7-4 victory.
It was one of two change ups Terra Nova
coach Bill Armstrong threw at Half Moon
Bay (5-0). He also sent nominal 182
pounder Dante Campagna to take Melton’s
spot at 195. The Tigers won both gambles
as Campagna recorded a pin less than a
minute into the second period.
“We were expecting it,” Baker said. “We
warned our kids.”
After the Tigers’ win at 220, however,
Half Moon Bay won the final three matches
of the night to pull out the victory. Cougars
heavyweight Jose Ayon started the come-
back by winning his match by second-round
pin, that cut his team’s deficit to 30-25.
Keller won his 106-pound match 9-0 for a
major-decision win to close to 30-29 and
set up the winner-take-all finale at 113.
Marschall said as the meet wore on, he
began to realize it might come down to his
match if the Cougars were going to wrest
the PAL Bay crown from the defending
champion Tigers.
He said it didn’t become a reality until the
last three matches before his.
“He’s good,” Marschall said of Terra
Nova’s Persino. “Last year, he beat me. I
heard he was coming after me.”
Other Half Moon Bay winners included:
Spencer Boling (132, pin), Matt Spigelman
(145, 3-2 decision) and Raul Hernandez
(182, pin). Other Terra Nova winners includ-
ed: Patrick Palomata (120, 10-3 decision),
Chase Edgington (138, pin), Iakona
Simpliciano (152, pin), Osvaldo Gazo
(160, 8-7 decision) and Leo Grabowski
(170, 4-2 decision).

team, he threw down four practi-
cally flawless runs over the series
of rails and jumps that are the
equivalent of a skier’s playground.
He led qualifying and insisted he
had plenty left for the finals.
Christensen’s three off-axis
jumps at the end of his first quali-
fying run totaled 10 full spins in
the span of 15 seconds — all com-
ing while he skied over the ramp
The rest of the 12-skier field
took aim in the second run of the
finals, but none could top the kid
with the floppy blonde hair and
easy smile that seems to embody a
sport that often looks like it’s just
a bunch of skiers taking turns
showing off.
Kenworthy, from Telluride,
Colo., was already planning to
head back home with at least one
of the stray dogs that call the
streets of Sochi home. Now
they’ll have some company — a
silver medal. He raised his arms
over his head after his second
finals run and busted out laughing
when his score of 93.60 was
Goepper, the gold medal favorite
from Lawrenceburg, Ind., dropped
a 92.40 during his first finals run
but couldn’t top it in the second as
the pressure mounted. He smacked
his skis against the second rail
feature, ending his chance of
leapfrogging Christensen.
“I feel amazing,” Goepper said.
“I think today was the best display
of skiing we have ever seen in our
sport, so I am so happy. ”
Only Norway’s Andreas Haatveit
could break the U.S.’s grip on the
podium. While his last trip was
slick, he seemed to know he would
come up short he crossed the finish
line. Haatveit put his hands
together as if to pray, then
shrugged and gave the Americans a
push when he ended up fourth.
With gold assured, Christensen
put on one last show instead of
taking a simple victory stroll
down the mountain. Twisting and
flipping his way to his teammates,
he pumped his arms in celebra-
tion. When his score — immateri-
al as far as the medals go, but still
the second-highest of the day —
was posted, Goepper and
Kenworthy hoisted him on their

time against us so we kind of took that per-
sonal and made a concentrated effort to
make sure he doesn’t get off against us espe-
cially in the Jungle, at Serra.”
“We showed a lot of heart on defense,”
said Mahoney, who was locked up on
Dunbar for the majority of the night. “The
main thing is that we never quit. In fourth
quarter, when they made a run, we never quit.
We knew all those line drills, that’s what
they’re for, that’s when they pay off. At the
same time, you have to give a lot of credit to
our big guys down low. They’re undersized
down there, but they did a really good job of
playing tough with those guys. Coach Rapp
always says it takes a village to defend the
post. It’s not just one guy down there.”
Dunbar was held to just 15 points on
Thursday night as opposed to those 40 he
torched Serra with the last time they met
over in San Francisco. He didn’t hit a field
goal in the third quarter and was held with-
out a bucket in the fourth until the three-
minute mark.
“[Dunbar’s] an unbelievable player, ”
Mahoney said. “He’s quick. That game he
had at S.I. was unbelievable — one of the
best performances I’ve ever seen from a
point guard in the WCAL. He did a great job
tonight, but we obviously did a better one.
It’s still tough to guard that guy. ”
Mahoney was the one who was basically
unguardable in the first quarter. No. 4 scored
15 of his 19 points in the first eight minutes
of the game behind five 3-pointers. He was
the fuel behind Serra racing to a 15-8 after
one quarter and 25-15 after two.
“Those were some tough shots, too,”
Rapp said. “He stepped up and was making
contested 3s from NBA range — which was
Perhaps even bigger for Serra was the oft-
celebrated interior defense. St. Ignatius can
throw some big bodies at you in the post
and they started to show their dominance in
the third period. But Trevor Brown and Jack
Killingsworth played the Wildcats tough
and as S.I. tried to put that deficit in the third
quarter, Serra did just enough to take a 10-
point lead into the fourth.
Come the fourth, the Wildcats made their
first big push midway through the quarter
behind Dunbar and got to 36-34. But a 6-0
Serra run push that lead back up to eight and
finally nine with under two minutes to play.
And that set up Watkins’ heroics.
“It was a big game,” Rapp said. “I know
the kids get a big kick out of it. As a teacher,
the whole student body is excited about it.
The alumni is excited about. It’s a communi-
ty event. It’s really the epicenter of the
Serra basketball calendar. You don’t want to
see S.I. clinch a WCAL round-robin title
here at Serra. So, we fought tooth and nail to
make sure that didn’t happen.”
When asked to describe the Jungle’s
atmosphere using just three words,
Mahoney said, “best sixth man.”
Former Serra great clings to life
The Serra Nation, along with fans from
St. Ignatius, held a moment of silence for
Padres Hall of Famer Jim Fregosi prior to
the opening tip-off.
Fregosi, who was reportedly taken off life
support Thursday night after suffering mul-
tiple strokes in Miami, was one of the
greatest prep athletes ever to grace the
At Serra High in the 1950s, he was a

He is 71 years old.

around, get it out to the wings and then swing
balls into box.
“We just wanted it more this time,” Basulto
said. “We just had that mentality to win every
50-50 ball.”
Despite that, it was El Camino that had the
first clear chance to get on the scoreboard in
the third minute when Jose Ayar had the ball
land at his feet inside the South City penalty.
His shot, however, deflected off a Warriors
defender and goalkeeper Noel Magallon made
an easy save.
Midway through the 40-minute half, El
Camino struck pay dirt. Geovanny Angeles
made a run into the South City penalty box,
unleashing a shot on which Magallon made a
kick save to turn away. The ball went right to
Cesar Pizzaro at the top of the box and his
shot found the right corner of the net to put the
Colts up 1-0.
Ten minutes later, the Warriors found the
equalizer. South City forward Angel Nevarez
had the ball at his feet about 30 yards from
goal, in the middle of the field. He found an
unmarked Basulto on the right side and after a
touch to settle the ball, Basulto took a shot
from about 18 yards that hit the underside of
the crossbar and bounced over the goal line for
the score.
Basulto said he was surprised to be all alone
that close to the goal.
“I thought someone was on my back,”
Basulto said, adding that was his first goal
against El Camino in two years because the
Colts usually man mark him with one or two
The Warriors continued the high pressure in
the second half and in the 62nd minute,
Basulto gave South City a 2-1 lead. Jerry
Barajas received the ball near midfield and after
a few touches, sent a perfect diagonal pass to
the right flank. Basulto ran onto to, got a step
on his defender and broke in on goal.
Basulto, an El Camino defender and the
goalkeeper all converged near the top of the
penalty box and all three collided, but Basulto
managed to poke the ball past both El Camino
players and into the net for the go-ahead goal.
“I just fought through,” Basulto said.
El Camino had a prime opportunity to tie
the score in the 68th minute when Leonardo
Silva made a long run to the end line, beating
a defender to send a cross to the middle of the
South City penalty box. The pass found
Marvin Vargas unmarked, but after taking a
touch to settle the ball, his shot was put well
over the top of the goal.
The Colts tried in vain to find the equalizer
in the waning minutes, but the Warriors held
them off.

No need for a party

I love Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films, but even the
biggest Tolkien geek has to admit that “The Return of the King”
drags at the end. It’s nice to say farewell to all the dwarves and elves
and hobbits we’ve come to know and love, but — heck, just wake
me when it’s over.
“Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” (Square Enix, for the
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99) is like the last 20 minutes of
“The Return of the King” stretched over a 50-hour-plus video
game. So you get tearful goodbyes from Snow, Fang,
Vanille and the rest of the gang you met back at the
beginning of this trilogy, 2009’s “Final Fantasy XIII”
— even though you probably already forgot about
them long ago.
You don’t need to have played the earlier “XIII”
chapters to understand “Lightning Returns.” (Indeed,
I defy anyone to make sense of the train wreck of
time-travel paradoxes in 2012’s “Final Fantasy
XIII-2.”) Here’s the essence: The heroine, a warrior
named Lightning, has been reincarnated with god-
like powers. The world is going to end in 13 days,
and her task is to save as many souls as possible.
So, every morning Lightning departs the celes-
tial plane and enters the more Earthly realm of
Nova Chrysalis. Each neighborhood is packed
with pilgrims preparing for the Rapture. Some
may ask you to kill a few monsters; others
may present more complicated tasks, like
nursing a chocobo (the giant chicken who’s
sort of the mascot of “Final Fantasy”) back
to health.
The clock is always ticking, and you
can’t solve everyone’s dilemmas,
although which missions are more
important becomes quickly
apparent. I found the artificial
time constraint frustrating;
“Lightning Returns” feints
toward the open-world
adventure of, say, “Skyrim,”
then punishes you if you
spend too much time

Alittle-known facet of American history
and race relations comes to light in “The
House That Will Not Stand,” being given
its world premiere by Berkeley Repertory
Playwright Marcus Gardley sets the
action in the home of Lazare (Ray
Reinhardt) and Beartrice (Lizan Mitchell)
in New Orleans in 1836. Beartrice, a free
woman of mixed race, is the white Lazare’s
plaçage, or common law wife.
According to the program notes,
plaçage “described formal arrangements
between white men and free women of
color, since the law ... forbade interracial
marriages. ... It referred more generally to
a free woman of mixed race (who) was
‘placed’ with a white man by her mother, ”
who was paid.
The man customarily bought the woman
a house and provided for her and their chil-
Thus Beartrice lives in a pleasant house
with her three maturing daughters, her sis-
ter and a black slave. However, times have
been changing since New Orleans became
a part of the United States with the
Louisiana Purchase of 1803.
As the play opens, Lazare has died under
somewhat suspicious circumstances, but
Beartrice has decreed that her household
will mourn for six months.
Therefore, her daughters and she will not
go to the masked ball, where it was
expected that she would negotiate with
white men for them to become plaçages.
When two of the daughters sneak off to
the ball anyway, they set off a series of
events that permanently change the
Gardley mixes ample portions of
voodoo, superstition and conjuring into
this story along with passages of poetic
beauty and some amusing lines.
Directed by Patricia McGregor, the play
is anchored by Mitchell’s steely Beartrice
and the household’s wily slave, Makeda
(Harriett D. Foy), who longs for her free-
Petronia Paley does double duty as La
Veuve, the family’s gossipy longtime
neighbor, and as Marie Josephine,
Beartrice’s off balance sister and a virtual
prisoner in the house.
Tiffany Rachelle Stewart plays Agnès,
the self-centered, often cruel oldest daugh-
ter. She says that the youngest daughter,
Odette (Joniece Abbott-Pratt), is not as
appealing to white men because her skin
is darker than that of her two sisters. The
middle sister, Maude Lynn (Flor De Liz
Perez), is one-dimensionally religious.
Although the overall plot is easy to fol-
low, details sometimes get lost when
accents are difficult to understand.
Running for two hours and 20 minutes, the
two-act play would benefit from tighter
Production values are high, especially
the lovely period costumes by Katherine
Despite some shortcomings, the play is
a fascinating look at a slice of history
with interesting characters.

‘House That Will Not Stand’ looks at neglected history
more fast-paced affairs. You can dress
Lightning in three outfits — say, one
heavily armored, one built for physical
attacks and one built for magic. During a
fight you can switch outfits on the fly,
and you’ll need to, because enemies con-
stantly change their attacks. It’s essen-
tially like switching among three differ-
ent characters, and it’s a challenging and
ultimately rewarding system that makes
almost every battle feel fresh.
Like any “Final Fantasy” game,
“Lightning Returns” kicks around some
weighty ideas about fate, duty, redemption
and salvation. And it offers a few nice, per-
sonal moments among Lightning and her
former comrades. But as delivered over
three games and 150-plus hours, the story
told by the “Final Fantasy XIII” trilogy is
bloated, incoherent and ultimately silly. It
aims for “wow” and settles for “huh?” Two
stars out of four.
“Bravely Default” (Nintendo, for the
3DS, $39.99) has “Final Fantasy” in its
DNA — Square Enix published it in Japan
— and fans of the older “FF” epics will
adore it. You are a boy named Tiz, and your
hometown has been destroyed by an earth-
quake. Of course, supernatural forces are at
work, and you must join forces with three
more plucky youngsters to save your
world from oblivion.
Combat is what role-playing aficiona-
dos call “turn-based”: You select your four
characters’ actions from a menu, tap “go”
and watch them play out. The gimmick
here is that any character can “default,”
assuming a defensive stance and storing
up energy. On the next turn, you can select
“brave” to unleash that pent-up energy,
making your attacks doubly effective.
The brave/default strategy becomes
more important in end-of-dungeon boss
battles, when one wrong choice can get
your entire party killed. And be warned: At
its initial setting, this is one tough game.
Don’t feel guilty about fiddling with the
menus and dialing down the difficulty.
The story drags at times and doesn’t hold
many surprises, but “Bravely Default”
does offer plenty of flexibility in building
your characters as they rampage across the
wilderness. It’s a beautifully executed
homage to the Japanese RPGs many of us
grew up on, and could even inspire
younger gamers to hunt down some of
those old-school gems. Three stars out of

Ask a Proesional
By Susan Cohn
David Ruth’s sizeable glass sculptures
spring from his rich internal life. His pieces
are influenced by the principles of the latest
science mixed with the avant-garde. Ruth
began his craft during the studio glass ren-
aissance taking place along the West Coast
in the 1970s and '80s, and soon produced
hand rolled art glass swirling with life and
depth. Today he continues to improve upon
the technology of glass fusing and casting
to create complex interior realms and glit-
tering polished surfaces on an architectural
scale. Ruth seeks to create works in glass
that are as familiar and evocative as the
stars in the sky or driftwood on a beach, yet
uniquely his own creation.
Ruth said: “I’ve used Internal space to
identify some of my work and its conceptu-
alization before. This show is somewhat
unique in that I have both pieces named after
islands in the South Pacific and also
Regulus, named after a star: Outer Space,
Inner Space.”
LION. The Peninsula Museum of Art hosts
a selection of Tom Killion’s vibrant multi-
colored prints, created from original Bay
Area landscape sketches and utilizing wood
blocks and a combination of traditional
Japanese and modern techniques. His result-
ing pieces fuse the landscape prints of early
19th century Japan with early 20th century
wood engraving and book illustrations
from Europe and America. Killion’s often
elaborate, multi-colored images are printed
on handmade Japanese kozo papers, using
oil-based inks and a German hand-cranked
proofing press. Killion is a Mill Valley
native whose perspective on art is informed
both by his Bay Area roots and his interna-
tional bent. He graduated from UC Santa
Cruz in the 1970s and produced his large-
format The Coast of California in 1979.
Killion completed a doctorate on
Ethiopia at Stanford in the 1980s and
worked as administrator of a medical relief
program in a camp for Ethiopian refugees in
Sudan, travelling with nationalist rebels in
war-torn Eritrea. In 1990, after many years
of work, Killion produced Walls: AJourney
Across Three Continents — an extensively
illustrated travel book combining his
African experiences with woodcut print-
making. In the late 1990s Killion collabo-
rated with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary
Snyder on a hand-printed, large-format
book, The High Sierra of California, which
was published in 2000 and issued as a trade
edition in 2002. In 2009 the two completed
a second book, Walking Tamalpais.
Killion, who lives in Point Reyes with his
wife and two children, is currently complet-
ing a new version of the Coast of California
with over 80 images and an entirely new
“Poetic History” text.
Killion said, “My landscape prints devel-
op from an intuitive, largely unplanned,
interaction between the observed world of
nature and the created world in my art studio.
They always begin with on-site sketches,
where I immerse myself in the scene, sitting
with it, finding the lines that give it depth
and clarity. Once I decide to turn a sketch
into a print, back in my studio, these lines
become the structure of the image. Then the
work begins to develop along its own lines,
growing a life of its own, as initial color
blocks inform the direction of subsequent
color layers. Finally, when the dark key
block is printed over all the colors, the pic-
ture completes itself, never exactly as I had
envisioned it, but often somehow more
evocative of the scene I was originally so
entranced with. That is the magic of print-

Recording artist Drake in attendance as the Toronto Raptors play against the Los Angeles Clippers during the
first half at Staples Center.
By Mesfin Fekadu
NEW YORK — Drake says he
won’t do interviews with maga-
zines following a recent story in
Rolling Stone magazine.
The rapper was supposed to be
on the cover of the magazine’s
new issue, but was replaced with
the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Drake tweeted Thursday that he’s
“done doing interviews with mag-
“I just want to give my music to
the people,” he wrote. “That’s the
only way my message gets across
accurately. ”
Other Thursday tweets from the
27-year-old were deleted, includ-
ing one about his discomfort with
Hoffman gracing the cover of
Rolling Stone.
“I’m disgusted with that. RIP t o
Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All
respect due. But the press is evil,”
he tweeted.
In the interview, Drake talks
about growing up as a biracial
child in Canada, meeting his men-
tor Lil Wayne and launching a suc-
cessful career in pop and rap.
Drake also discussed not attend-
ing last month’s Grammy Awards,
where he lost three rap trophies to
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis,
including best rap album, which
Drake won last year. Macklemore
& Lewis also beat Kendrick Lamar,
Jay Z and Kanye West in the latter
Macklemore sent a text to Lamar
— and posted the message online
— after the awards show, telling
Lamar he felt that he had robbed
him by winning best rap album.
“I was like, ‘You won. Why are
you posting your text messages?
Just chill. Take your W, and if you
feel you didn’t deserve it, go get
better — make better music,”’
Drake said in the interview.
Drake also tweeted Thursday that
he never spoke of West’s “Yeezus”
album during the interview.
Rolling Stone quotes Drake call-
ing some of West’s lyrics “ques-
tionable,” along with him saying
he “loves” the outspoken rapper.

SACRAMENTO — California
would become the first state to
require warning labels on sodas and
other sugary drinks under a propos-
al a state lawmaker announced
SB1000 would require the warn-
ing on the front of all beverage con-
tainers with added sweeteners that
have 75 or more calories in every
12 ounces. The label would read:
WARNING: Drinking beverages
with added sugar(s) contributes to
obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay.”
Democratic Sen. William
Monning, who proposed the bill,
said there is overwhelming research
showing the link between sugary
drinks and those health problems,
adding that the wording was devel-
oped by a national panel of nutri-
tion and public health experts. The
bill has the backing of the
California Medical Association and
the California Center for Public
Health Advocacy.
“The goal of the warning quite
simply is to give consumers the
right to know what are well-estab-
lished medical impacts from con-
suming these beverages,”
Monning, from Carmel, said in a
telephone interview. “We’re talking
about a public health epidemic that
will take more lives than gun vio-
The Latino Coalition for a
Healthy California and the
California Black Health Network
also are sponsoring the legislation,
citing the heavy consumption of
sugary drinks and associated health
problems among minorities.
Abill similar to Monning’s was
introduced last year in Vermont, but
it has been held in the Committee
on Human Services since April. The
Vermont bill would require manufac-
turers to put warning labels on bev-
erages that contain sugar or other
artificial additives.
CalBev, the California arm of the
Washington, D.C.-based American
Beverage Association, noted that
the industry already posts calorie
counts on the front of many bever-
age containers as part of its “Clear
on Calories” campaign that began
in 2010. Also, drink bottles already
have detailed ingredient lists and
nutritional information.
“We agree that obesity is a seri-
ous and complex issue,” the group
said in a statement, but it called
Monning’s bill “misleading”
because it said just 6 percent of
calories in the average American’s
diet come from soda, fruit, sports
and energy drinks, compared with
11 percent in sweets and deserts.
Moreover, it said most calories are
consumed in the form of fats, oils
and starches in food.

No need for a party to have shrimp cocktail
By Elizabeth Karmel
My favorite thing about fancy parties? They almost
always include a shrimp cocktail appetizer — platters of
giant, plump shrimp just waiting to be dunked into a piquant
cocktail sauce.
But there’s no reason you have to wait for fancy parties to
enjoy this treat. All you need is an excuse. And to me,
there’s none better than an Oscar viewing party. Best yet,
shrimp cocktail is easy to make, can be done in advance,
and you don’t even have to cook the shrimp yourself (but it
is better if you do).
My preference is for large or jumbo shrimp, generally
classified as 10 to 15 shrimp per pound. Large usually come
in at 15 to 30 per pound.
The best shrimp are flash frozen within hours of being
caught. This preserves the flavor and texture of the shrimp.
Keep the shrimp frozen until just before you want to serve or
cook them. When you are ready, thaw the shrimp under cold
running water. This is essential to preserving the texture of
the shrimp.
For shrimp cocktail, I cook the shrimp by a method that
is closer to poaching. I want the shrimp to be fully cooked,
but not over-cooked and this is my fail-safe method. I boil a
big pot of salted water and add fresh lemons just before
adding the thawed shrimp. As soon as the shrimp are added,
the lid goes on the pot and the heat is turned off until the
shrimp are cooked, about 3 to 4 minutes for most jumbo
Once the shrimp are cooked, I dunk them in cold water to
stop the cooking. You know when shrimp are perfectly
cooked when the shells come off easily. The shells tend to
stick to over-cooked shrimp.
Keep the peeled shrimp dry and cold in the refrigerator,
then serve with homemade cocktail sauce. The bloody mary
cocktail sauce here is one of my favorites. The addition of
vodka adds a spike of flavor and the rim of celery salt is both
pretty and reminiscent of that classic cocktail.
This sweet and smoky, tart and tangy bloody mary sauce
is so good you will want to drink it — or adopt it as both
your house cocktail sauce and the mixer for your favorite eye
opener. Rim your serving dish with celery salt before serv-
ing for a special presentation and that hint of celery.
Start to finish: 20 minutes
Servings: 6
Kosher salt
2 lemons, quartered
2 pounds jumbo shell-on raw shrimp, thawed if frozen

service hotel per the council’s request and
simplified the building design with metal
scrim material along the primary view corri-
dors of Highway 101 and Oyster Point
Boulevard, according to a staff report.
“We toned down the colors; it’s a more
unified character,” said architect Tom
Gilman. “We reduced the trim and used more
muted colors. It results in a more elegant
design. The buildings feel like more of a
family. ”
The upper edge of the scrim has an undu-
lating design, shaped to reflect the
Centennial Tower building to the west of the
project site on the opposite side of Highway
101. The remainder of the parking garage
would be screened with vertical louvers.
With the changes, Mayor Karyl
Matsumoto said she had a deep appreciation
for the applicant working with and listen-
ing to the council.
The City Council also got a chance to
visit the project site.
“I’m glad we went to the site because I
had issues about the location of the
hotel,” said Vice Mayor Richard
Garbarino. “It made a lot more sense.”
Part of the changes to the previous plans
by the applicant were changed adjusting the
timeframe for development of the hotel or

LOS ANGELES — Despite the paper bag
covering his noggin declaring “I AM NOT
FAMOUS ANYMORE,” Shia LaBeouf can
still draw a crowd.
Aline of more than 200 curious individu-
als seeking a few minutes of face time — Or
should that be bag time? — with the masked
27-year-old actor snaked along the sidewalk
of a busy Los Angeles street, around the
block and down an alleyway Wednesday
afternoon. A silent LaBeouf is brazenly on
display this week for a performance-art
piece titled “(hash)IAMSORRY. ”
“I read he’s only doing it a few days, and I
just wanted to be part of it,” said Amanda
Sutton, a 25-year-old graphic designer, as
she waited outside the Cohen Gallery on
trendy Beverly Boulevard for her staring
contest with LaBeouf. “I don’t know what’s
going to happen, other than what I read on
Twitter. I keep thinking of what I’ll say or
do, but I just want it to be spontaneous.”
Seated at a small table, wearing a
disheveled tuxedo and the rumpled paper bag
with eye holes cut out and the words “I AM
black ink across it, LaBeouf began his
planned seven-day stint inside the small
gallery on Tuesday. “Shia LaBeouf is sorry, ”
read a press release circulated about the
event. “Sincerely sorry. ”
So why exactly is LaBeouf apologetic?
It’s never explained, and LaBeouf isn’t talk-
The performance-art oddity comes days
after LaBeouf posed on the red carpet at the
Berlin Film Festival in the same getup and
walked out of a press conference to promote
filmmaker Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac
Volume I,” the first installment of a sexually
charged two-part drama, after reciting a line
once delivered by a suspended French soccer
The “Transformers” and “Disturbia” star
came under fire last year for borrowing the
storyline and dialogue for his short film
“Howard Cantour.com,” which closely
resembled the 2007 graphic novel “The
Death-Ray” by Daniel Clowes. LaBeouf has
since apologized on Twitter in a series of
posts that appear to be directly lifted from
other famous mea culpas.
After waiting in line for several hours,
attendees were frisked by a security guard in
a black suit and ushered inside the gallery.
They’re asked to choose among “imple-
ments” to bring into the space with
LaBeouf. The items include a “Transformers”
toy, a bowl of printed tweets, a bottle of
cologne, a ukulele and a copy of Clowes’
book. No photography is permitted.
During a visit by the Associated Press to
the exhibit on Wednesday, the bag-clad
LaBeouf stared forward with his tattooed
hands on the table and remained silent when
asked questions, his once twinkly green
eyes devoid of emotion. The only interac-
tion from LaBeouf occurred during a pair of
sweaty handshakes exchanged at the start
and end of the encounter.
The stunt reached a new level of ridicu-
lousness Wednesday when “Stand by Me”
and “Piranha 3D” actor Jerry O’Connell, in
collaboration with the comedy site
FunnyOrDie.com, began parodying LaBeouf
at a gallery next door with “(hash)IAMSOR-
RYTOO” similarly plastered on the window.
Inside, O’Connell donned a paper bag with
the words “SUPER FAMOUS” on it.
The line to meet O’Connell was consider-
ably shorter than LaBeouf’s queue.
O’Connell’s one-day lampoon was particu-
larly meta because many folks have drawn
parallels between LaBeouf’s
“(hash)IAMSORRY” display and artist
Marina Abramovic’s performance-art piece
“The Artist Is Present,” which featured
Abramovic sitting across from visitors at
New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 2010.
LaBeouf’s paper-bag art stunt draws curious crowd
Cast member Shia LaBeouf arrives on the red carpet to promote the movie ‘Nymphomaniac
Volume I’ during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.

tion for a $550,000 regional grant last
month. Final approval of any expendi-
ture would come at a later time.
Belmont has long been noted for not
having a central downtown hub and the
council kick-started plans late last
month for new policies to shift that.
The plans include encouraging more
compact residences closer to down-
town, creating a centralized shopping
focal point and consolidating parking
to encourage visitors to walk to multi-
ple destinations.
Before residents see any real physi-
cal developments, the city needs to get
its financing in order, hire consult-
ants, conduct studies, go through the
public hearing process and have the
council approve the planning docu-
But councilmembers say these plans
will pave the way and the city’s seen
more progress in the last few months
then it has in the last eight years.
“It’s a very big step toward taking
positive and productive action toward
making a revitalized downtown a reali-
t y,” Mayor Warren Lieberman said.
“Especially to create a downtown in
the spirit of a village feel and what so
many in Belmont are looking forward
The city is looking at creating and
updating the Belmont Village General
Plan, Zoning and Design Guidelines as
well as Belmont’s General Plan,
according to a staff report. Staff’s rec-
ommendations last month still stand
and will be incorporated into the docu-
ments, de Melo said.
Belmont’s downtown will be pedes-
trian friendly and have more flexible
zoning codes to support more residen-
tial and mixed-use buildings near a
concentrated retail core, de Melo said.
Residents want to see a vibrant and
unique downtown, Stone said.
“The lack of a downtown is noticed
and on people’s minds. It was one of
the most commonly brought up issues
during the election,” Stone said. “I
think a downtown can do a lot for a
city’s economy and more importantly,
I think a downtown gives a city a sense
of identity. ”
San Mateo and San Carlos were
recently voted as two of California’s
top 10 cities to live while Belmont
was in 18th place, Stone said.
Belmont has similar characteristics of
both cities and he fears the lack of a
downtown could be holding them
back, Stone said.
The city may be investing a substan-
tial chunk into planning documents,
but Stone and Lieberman believe it’s
for a valuable cause and will pay off in
the future when the city starts to see
impact fees from developers.
These documents are critical because
if the city wants to support new devel-
opments, it will have to modify some
of its zoning codes, de Melo said.
Belmont is growing and a lot has
changed since the inception of its
1982 general plan so staff is recom-
mending a multi-pronged approach to
include the city’s overall land use
plans within its downtown efforts, de
Melo said.
“The downtown work is the engine
for all of this. It really kind of brings
things along. But there are some effi-
ciencies in getting all of our docu-
ments completed at the same time,” de
Melo said. “Because we’d have to do an
EIR for the village part of the city and
[one] for the rest of the city, if you do
an EIR that covers both areas of the
city there are some efficiencies and
cost savings in doing so.”
Staff hopes to return to council in 30
to 45 days with solidified consulting
contracts. The city and consulting
firms will conduct substantial commu-
nity and neighborhood outreach as it
develops its plans, de Melo said.

because the school, which serves pre-
school and kindergarten children, is not
part of the core university mission.
“We have been discussing the future
of the ELC at the senior management
level for the past several years,” Greig
said in an official statement. “Although
the school does provide a valuable serv-
ice, it also places a significant burden
on NDNU management and resources
that is becoming increasingly difficult
to justify.”
The ELC was founded in 1964 by
Sister Christina Trudeau, a sister of
Notre Dame de Namur and pioneer in
early childhood and Montessori educa-
tion. It was intended to provide training
for early childhood educators. However,
the university no longer has an early
childhood education program as part of
its School of Education and Leadership.
It currently has a three-year curriculum,
with art, music, gardening and Spanish
Richard Rossi, director of communi-
cations, said the Montessori program
has taken a lot of time from senior man-
agement. The university has been con-
sidering terminating the program for
the last couple of years since it has
taken up university resources, security
and maintenance, he said.
“If it were really central to our mis-
sion that would fine, but it really isn’t
anymore,” Rossi said. “Preschools are
always dealing with issues and several
teachers left just before the school year
started to start their own school; it’s
unfortunate we did not have more
He noted teacher and management
turnover, along with other turmoil,
have taken up more and more manage-
ment time. Running the program also
required having a number of
Montessori certified teachers, which
are difficult to find, he said, adding to
the management challenges.
“There’s plenty of other places in
San Mateo that offer that (preschool)
service,” he said.
For the 2012-13 school year, the
cost of tuition for the preschool was
$7,690. Kindergarten was $9,145 for
half day, $10,000 for a full day and
$12,600 for an extended day, which
included after-school Spanish lessons.
The school ran from September
through May and also held a summer

The two San Francisco natives went
on to get engaged in 1949 and married
the following year. The Scadutos said
they tend to stay in more these days.
“We did all our entertaining in the
’70s,” John said. “We’ve been to Tahiti,
Europe, Hawaii and one of our best trips
was a trip on the Mississippi River. One

During their time in Millbrae, John
worked as a cabinetmaker and estimator,
while Ann was a secretary and worked in
sales at Sears in San Bruno for a number
of years. Ann said she received awards
for being a top saleswoman, garnering
her free dinners and other accolades.
“It put my son through college,” she
said. “I met good people there and got to
know the managers.”
The couple does have long-term at-

getting around. Ann gets around with a
walker and needs assistance cooking

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t feel neglected
if someone doesn’t go along with your plans. You
could go along with the group or spend some time
working independently on something else you enjoy.
PISCES ( Feb. 20-March 20) — Indulge in things
you find pleasurable. Soothe your nerves by
listening to your favorite music or enjoying a
special meal. Relaxation could help you feel
refreshed and rejuvenated.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Go ahead, make the
improvements you have been contemplating. Take
the necessary action to reach an important goal.
You will be pleased at the results and impress
someone you care about as well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Go over your records
to determine whether you have been careless with
money. Be honest with yourself and make adjustments
to your budget before your debts take over.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Your outgoing nature will
lead to an interesting invitation. Accept what’s offered,
and take advantage of the chance to expand your
social circle. You will encounter someone special.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — A project will demand
your full attention. Be thorough, resist distractions
and maintain your focus until you have perfected your
approach. Procrastination will result in frustration.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Time spent worrying is
time wasted. Keep your mind off your troubles by
staying busy and accomplishing something uplifting.
Don’t dwell on what you cannot change.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Proceed with caution.
Someone may be trying to take advantage of you.
Make sure you are aware of what’s expected, and
don’t be coerced into doing something you’ll regret.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Get out and mingle.
Sitting at home will only make you more lethargic. Get
up, get moving, and indulge in something you’ve never
done before. You could gain a whole new perspective.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Review contracts
before you make a commitment. Make sure everyone
is in agreement and that you are being treated fairly
before you proceed. Better to be safe than sorry.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Enroll in a course,
begin a creative endeavor or get involved in a sports
activity. You will meet people with similar interests,
and learn something valuable in the process.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Temptation will
lead to loss. Avoid a get-rich-quick scheme. Resist
high-pressure sales tactics, and get all the details
before you sign on the dotted line. Consider the
consequences if you act impulsively.

Putin backs Egypt army
chief’s run for president
MOSCOW — Russian President
Vladimir Putin on Thursday wished
Egypt’s military chief victory in
the nation’s
p r e s i d e n t i a l
vote, even
though he has
yet to announce
his bid — a
strong endorse-
ment signaling
M o s c o w ’ s
desire to expand
its military and
other ties with a
key U.S. ally in the Middle East.
Putin appeared to be capitalizing
on a growing move by Gulf
nations — particularly Saudi
Arabia — to move the Middle East
off its traditional reliance on the
United States.
Egyptian Field Marshal Abdel-
Fattah el-Sissi’s visit to Moscow
comes amid reports of a $2 billion
Egyptian arms deal with Russia to
be funded mainly by Saudi Arabia
and the United Arab Emirates,
which is part of Egypt’s shift to
reduce reliance on the United
“The United States’ influence is
steadily waning in the region for
several years,” said Gamal Abdel-
Gawad, a political analyst at
Cairo’s Al-Ahram Center for
Political and Strategic Studies.
“Traditional allies like the Saudis
are becoming more and more sus-
picious, and U.S. credibility in the
region is at stake.
Without naming the United
States, the Kremlin criticized what
it regards as U.S. interference in
the internal affairs of other coun-
Around the world
By John Heilprin
and Barbara Surk
GENEVA — The United States
and Russia promised to try to
break the stalemate in Syria peace
talks, a U.N. mediator said
Thursday, as Syrian activists said
government shelling and
airstrikes with makeshift barrel
bombs killed about 400 people in
the country’s largest city so far
this month.
Asecond round of peace talks in
Geneva has offered a rare opportu-
nity for conversation, but yielded
little more than acrimony. The
violence has escalated on the
ground and delegates in Geneva
have failed to even agree on an
agenda for the talks.
U.N.-Arab League mediator
Lakhdar Brahimi said after meet-
ing with senior U.S. and Russian
officials that they pledged to try
“They have kindly reaffirmed
their support to what we are trying
to do and promised that they will
help both here and in their capi-
tals and elsewhere to unblock the
situation for us because until now
we are not making much
progress,” he told reporters.
He met with U.S. Undersecretary
of State Wendy Sherman and
Russian Deputy Minister of
Foreign Affairs Gennady Gatilov
to try to salvage the talks.
“Failure is always staring at us
in the face. As far as the U.N. is
concerned, we will certainly not
leave one stone unturned if there is
a possibility to move forward,” he
The bombings in Aleppo are
part of a campaign by President
Bashar Assad’s forces to wrest
control of neighborhoods that
were seized by rebels in the north-
ern city since mid-2012.
They come as a cease-fire in the
central city of Homs has been
extended for three days as of
Thursday in order to allow more
people to leave besieged rebel-
