Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Family Owned & Operated
Established: 1949
By Laura Dudnick
Within a four-month period in
the winter and spring of 1976, ve
young women disappeared in San
Mateo County and were later found
None of the ve homicides has
been solved, but authorities said
the person who killed those
women is believed to be the same
person who murdered a 19-year-
old woman in Reno that year.
The connection was announced
at a news conference outside the
Redwood City courthouse
Thursday morning, where authori-
ties said investigators are appeal-
ing to the public to help solve the
killings, known as the Gypsy
Hill murders.
Ajoint task force involving the
FBI and San Mateo County law
enforcement agencies has been
created to focus on the cases, and
in the coming weeks agents, of-
cers and deputies plan to canvass
neighborhoods where the women
were last seen or where their bod-
ies were found to try to turn up new
No tips or observations are too
small for us, said Gerald Bessette,
assistant special agent in charge
at the FBIs San Francisco ofce.
Authorities are hoping someone
will remember a suspicious inci-
dent or detail that could shed light
on any of the homicides.
He said anyone who lived in the
Bay Area or Reno around the time
the crimes occurred is asked to
reach back in their memories for
anything unusual.
The rst Peninsula victim was
18-year-old Veronica Ronnie
Cascio, who was last seen Jan. 7,

A wild backyard
San Mateo man dedicates his yard as a wildlife habitat
By Samantha Weigel
Mike Pagano has used his pas-
sion for nature photography and
desire to support a healthy ecosys-
tem and create a certied wildlife
habitat at his San Mateo home.
The National Wildlife Federation
recognized Pagano for his efforts
in turning his backyard into a sus-
tainable refuge for his neighbor-
ing wildlife by providing natural
food sources, clean water, shelter
and places to raise young.
I think this whole certication
process is supposed encourage that
our yards are mini sanctuaries.
They become an oasis for wildlife
even though were in an urban
society, Pagano said. Where
everythings paved over theres
less and less space for wildlife and
we all appreciate wildlife whether
you know it or not.
Hes worked on his backyard for
15 years and in many ways its
pretty typical, Pagano said. But he
deliberately leaves his carefully
chosen plants unmanicured

County jobless rate jumps
The countys jobless rate rose in
January 2009 by 1.2 percent to 7.2
percent but still lower than near-
ly all of California, according to
local data released the week of
March 7, 2009, by the state.
The jobless rate, announced
Thursday of the week by the state
Employment Development
Department, represented an increase
from the revised figure of 6.2 per-
cent in December 2008. It is up
from 4.1 percent during the same
time period the prior
year, according to the
San Mateo
Countys figures put
it lower than the unadjusted state
rate of 10.6 percent and the
nations 8.5 percent. It also gave
San Mateo County the third lowest
unemployment rate in the state
behind Marin and Mono counties.
Foster City karate coach
arrested for molestation
AFoster City karate instructor was
arrested the week of March 7, 2009,
for child molestation after police
discovered him in a car with a 13-
year-old student.
Responding to a call from a con-
cerned resident, San Carlos police
responded to a suspicious car parked
in the 900 block of McCue Avenue at
6:50 p.m. Monday of that week. The
caller reported seeing someone put-
ting sheets over the interior of the
cars windows. Police believed they
were responding to a transient who

Assessment scam
targets homeowners
Aprivate company chargi ng
homeowners $95 for fill-
ing out a one-page form
readily available for free
sent the San Mateo
County Assessors Office
a packet of 160 Decline in
Value reassessment application
forms, the office said the week of
March 7, 2009.
This was the first set of Decline
in Value forms received to that date
from one of the three companies cur-
rently operating in San Mateo
County. More were sure to follow,
according to the Assessors Office.
Many of the applicants may not
have been as familiar with the role
of government and probably
assumed this kind of service is com-
plicated and carries a fee. Neither is
true, according to the Assessors

A Menlo Park pyrotechnics expert died
Thursday of injuries he suffered when a load of
reworks he and his twin brother were trans-
porting ignited inside their car as they drove
on an Arizona highway in early February,
authorities said.
The explosion happened on state Highway
95 in Lake Havasu City on Feb 12.
Randall Feldman, 59, known as Randy, suf-
fered burns to 70 percent of his body and was
taken to a hospital in Las Vegas, Nev., where
he died Thursday, according to the Clark
County coroners ofce.
Lake Havasu City police Sgt. Troy Stirling
said the reworks that Randy and his identical
twin Michael were transporting ignited while
they were driving.
Randy and Michael were in Lake Havasu to
attend the annual Western Pyrotechnic
Associations Winter Blast, a ve-day get-
together for pyrotechnic enthusiasts, accord-
ing to the association president Lynden
King said Randy was scheduled to give a
presentation on building reworks at the
event, which ran from Feb. 12 to Feb. 16.
Stirling said the brothers were traveling on
the highway heading away from the event
that day when the reworks in the trunk began
Randy was a passenger in the vehicle and
his brother was driving at the time. Michael
pulled over and Randy walked toward the cars
trunk to see what was causing the reworks to
go off, according to the sergeant.
He ended up being badly burned by the
explosions, and was taken by ambulance to
Havasu Regional Medical Center and then air-
lifted to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas,
Stirling said.
Michael suffered only minor injuries and
refused medical treatment at the scene,
Stirling said.
Stirling said the cause of the ignition
appears to have been a chemical reaction, but
since the product burned up there is no way
to determine exactly what happened.
King said Feldman had been handling re-
works for most his life and was an expert
pyrotechnician. He said the association will
continue to promote the safe use of reworks
by giving seminars throughout the year on
how to build and properly use pyrotechnics.
An online obituary states that Feldman was
also a husband and a father.

A Redwood City church volunteer con-
victed of molesting a dozen boys he met
either through his sons school or volun-
teering must serve a 13-year sentence before
he can begin the remaining term of 120
years to life in prison.
In November, a jury deliberated three days
before convicting Gerardo Gontiz, 50, of 10
counts of committing a lewd act on a child,
eight counts of felony child molestation,
three counts of felony oral copulation with
a minor, one count of
felony sodomy on a
minor, one felony count
of using child pornogra-
phy and two misdemeanor
battery charges. The jury
also found true that he had
molested multiple vic-
tims which returned a 15-
years-to-life sentence for
eight of the counts.
Jurors deadlocked on two remaining child
molestation charges.
The prosecution told jurors that between
August 2009 and May 2011, Gontiz abused
boys between the ages of 13 and 17 that he
met while volunteering at Everest Public
High School, church and volunteering as a
supervising parent on boys trips to a
Modesto ranch. His crimes included
fondling, oral copulation, masturbation and
grabbing of the boys genitals.
In addition to his prison time, Gontiz
must also register as a sex offender. He has
credit for time served of 1,481 days earned
while in custody after his arrest, rst on
$375,000 bail and then no-bail after his

WASHINGTON Relief may be on the
way for a weather-weary United States with
the predicted warming of the central Pacic
Ocean brewing this year that will likely
change weather worldwide. But it wont be
for the better everywhere.
The warming, called an El Nino, is
expected to lead to fewer Atlantic hurricanes
and more rain next winter for drought-
stricken California and southern states, and
even a milder winter for the nations frigid
northern tier next year, meteorologists say.
While it could be good news to lessen the
southwestern U.S. drought and shrink heat-
ing bills next winter in the far north,
worldwide it can be quite a different story,
said North Carolina State University atmos-
pheric sciences professor Ken Kunkel.
Some areas benet. Some dont.
Globally, it can mean an even hotter year
coming up and billions of dollars in losses
for food crops.
The National Oceanic Atmospheric and
Administration issued an ofcial El Nino
watch Thursday. An El Nino is a warming of
the central Pacic once every few years,
from a combination of wind and waves in
the tropics. It shakes up climate around the
world, changing rain and temperature pat-
Mike Halpert, acting director of NOAAs
Climate Prediction Center, says the El Nino
warming should develop by this summer,
but that there are no guarantees. Although
early signs are appearing already a few hun-
dred feet below the ocean surface, meteorol-
ogists say an El Nino started to brew in
2012 and then shut down suddenly and unex-
The ip side of El Nino is called a La Nina,
which has a general cooling effect. It has
been much more frequent than El Ninos late-
l y, with ve La Ninas and two small-to-
moderate El Ninos in the past nine years.
The last big El Nino was 1997-1998.
Neither has appeared since mid-2012. El
Ninos are usually strongest from December
to April.
Kevin Trenberth, a senior scientist at the
National Center for Atmospheric Research,
who wasnt part of NOAAs forecast, agreed
that an El Nino is brewing.
This could be a substantial event and I
think were due, Trenberth said. And I
think it could have major consequences.
Halpert said it is too early to say how
strong this El Nino will be. The last four
have been weak or moderate and those have
fewer effects on weather.
Scientic studies have tied El Ninos to
farming and fishing problems and to
upticks in insect-born disease, such as
malaria. Commodity traders even track El
Nino cycles. A study by Texas A&M
University economics professor Bruce
McCarl found the last big El Nino of 1997-
1998 cost about $3 billion in agricultural
Trenberth said this El Nino may even
push the globe out of a decade-long slow-
down in temperature increase, so suddenly
global warming kicks into a whole new
Kunkel said if this El Nino is a strong
one, global temperatures, probably in
2015, could be in near record breaking ter-
Here comes El Nino; good news for U.S. weather woes
After years of dryness and low reservoirs,an El Ninos wet weather would be welcome in places

SAN FRANCISCO Anew survey of the
nations college freshmen has found that the
percentage attending their first-choice
school has reached its lowest level in almost
four decades, as cost and the availability of
nancial aid have come to play an inuential
role in decisions of where to enroll.
The annual survey released Wednesday,
conducted by UCLAs Higher Education
Research Institute, found that while more
than three-quarters of those who started col-
lege last fall were admitted to the school they
most wanted to attend, only 57 percent ended
up going to their top school. That was the
lowest rate in the 39 years that the institute
has asked rst-time freshmen if they enrolled
at their dream college.
Kevin Eagan, the institutes interim man-
aging director and an assistant professor at
UCLA, said the cost of attending college
appears to be largely responsible for the
decline. A record 46 percent of students
reported that cost was a very important factor

Thank you thank
you thank you.
This is what I hear
over and over, year
after year, from
families that we
serve. Either
verbally or in hand-written cards or letters
families say thank you: Thank for your
help; Thank you for all you have done to
make this process easier; Thank you for
making this final tribute to my mother one
which will be fondly remembered; Thank
you for your advice; Thank you for being
there for us at a time we needed you most;
Thank you for making it all easy for us;
Thank you for being a friend, etc. To hear
Thank you time and time again is a
confirmation for me that our Chapel of the
Highlands crew is doing their best to serve
families whove been through a death, in an
appropriate and professional manner, and
that we are doing the right thing in caring
for families during a difficult situation, in
turn making it more of a comfort for them.
Normally saying Youre welcome is
the correct response. Youre welcome, or
You are welcome, can be taken a number
of different ways. Generally it means you
are always a welcome guest. It can also be
taken as a blessing meaning you wish
wellness on the person who thanked you.
Wishing wellness or health to anyone is a
nice gesture. In recent years though we all
have witnessed the term Youre welcome
being substituted with Thank you back at
the person who is doing the thanking. This
is OK, but saying Youre welcome first
is taken as a hospitable and warm gesture.
Now that Thank you and Youre
welcome have been established, I would
like to say thank you back to the families we
serve: Thank you for supporting the Chapel
of the Highlands. Thank you for your
faithful patronage. Because of you we have
been able to continue with our high
standards and excellent level of service for
many years, since 1952. Thank you to those
families who weve helped so many times in
the past. Thank you to the new families
whove discovered that we offer them
respect and provide the dignified care that
their loved one deserves.
Your support, and the continued interest
from the community in our service, is what
keeps us going strong and available when
we are needed. Our costs have always been
considered fair, and the funds taken in for
our services are also very much appreciated.
Those Chapel of the Highlands funds along
with our support sifts back to the community
in different ways. Donations to local causes,
along with the donation of time through
membership in service organizations such as
Lions, I.C.F., Historical Society, Chamber
of Commerce, etc. is natural for us. Giving
back as a volunteer via these groups helps in
binding us with our neighbors, together
creating a better community for the future.
All in all there are many ways to say
Thank you. Doing so in a variety of ways
can create a circle of gratitude, in turn
making our community a better place.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

Safeway has agreed to be acquired by an
investment group led by Cerberus Capital
Management, the owner several supermar-
ket chains.
The acquisition is worth about $7.64 bil-
lion in cash, and pending other transactions
could top more than $9 billion.
The deal, announced late Thursday, will
bring together Safeway and Albertsons.
Cerberus last year had bought the
Albertsons stores it didnt already own from
Supvalu Inc., along with four other
Supervalu chains.
It comes amid ongoing consolidation in
the supermarket industry, which is facing
growing competition from big-box retail-
ers, specialty chains, drug stores and even
dollar stores. Kroger Co., a key competitor,
recently snapped up regional chain Harris
Safeway said in February that it was look-
ing into putting itself up for sale. The

to adapt for some time to increased competi-
tion and recently shed some of its smaller,

operations and Dominicks stores in

More important than what the city of San
Carlos looks like is what the community
wants the city to be like,
Mayor Mark Olbert said
Thursday night during the
annual State of the City
During the talk, deliv-
ered under the Alice in
Wonder l and- i nspi r ed
heading Running Like
Mad to Stay in Place,
Olbert called on a cross-
section of residents to help him take the
communitys economic and cultural pulse
but rst said it was important to know how
the city evolved. The community of nearly
30,000 is aging but has an increasing num-
ber of school-age children, averages a
household income more than $110,000 and
a desire to give back all factors which
help color future decisions, he said.
This is a community that has never been
shy of dipping into its own pockets to
improve community life, Olbert said.
Joining Olbert speaking at the reception
sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce
were Sallie Gasparini, a past co-president of
the San Carlos Education Foundation; Jack
Baumgarten, a former transportation and
circulation commissioner for nine years;
Julie Schneider, whose family has owned
Action Signs System since 1982; Dennis
OMalley, CEO of ReadyPulse, a social con-
tent marketing platform company; Laura
Teutschel of LT & Associates marketing and
public relations; and Tom Moananu-Apela, a
construction coordinator who coaches
youth sports and recently founded a new
baseball league.
Collectively, the speakers painted San
Carlos as the ideal place to live due to its
schools, camaraderie, events, walkability
and accessibility. Even something as sim-
ple as sidewalks is a draw, OMalley said.
If there is one common thread, Moananu-
Apela said, it is the great sense of commu-
nity that bigger cities like Redwood City
may not foster as easily.
Despite the overall praise, the assembled
presenters did have some suggestions for
improvement, namely parking.
Schneider would like to see a return of
SCOOT, the citys former shuttle system,
and Gasparini suggested nding ways to
encourage parking turnover of spots on
Laurel Street even if that means meters.
Otherwise, she said, the long-term parking
is impeding ways for San Carlans to spend
money locally.
Teutschel also raised the idea of making
more efforts toward Silicon Valley and said
shed like to see the citys east side be a
nice conuence of living and tech.
OMalley, who shared the challenges of
starting a company in a former massage
space with parking challenges for his
employees, suggested having tech incuba-
tors and more openness to development to
answer how do you live and work in the
place of your dreams?

Israeli prime minister making California swing
LOS ANGELES Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu was traveling Tuesday from Washington, D.C.,
to California trading a focus on the
geopolitics of the Middle East for a
Hollywood screening and visits with
Silicon Valley tech entrepreneurs.
Netanyahus two-day schedule included
the viewing in Los Angeles of a televi-
sion documentary which features him,
and a jaunt north to meet with tech exec-
The trip is the rst time since 2006
that a sitting Israeli prime minister has
visited California. It should offer
Netanyahu a break from weighty discussions in
Washington, where President Barack Obama challenged the
Israeli leader on Monday to make tough decisions to sal-
vage an elusive Middle East peace plan with Palestinians.
In a speech Tuesday before his ight west, Netanyahu reit-
erated his position that Western nations should increase
pressure on Iran and its nuclear program. Once in Los
Angeles, he planned to meet with local Jewish leaders
before watching the television documentary Israel: The
Royal Tour. The show is described as an all-access pass
into and across the entire country, led by the one man
who knows it best.

Hubble Telescope captures shattering asteroid
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. The Hubble Space Telescope
has captured the rst pictures of a disintegrating asteroid.
Asteroid P/2013 R3 was detected in September in the
asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. It
appeared as a fuzzy object. Further observations by ground
telescopes revealed three bodies. Hubble uncovered 10
objects, each with dusty tails. The four largest fragments are
up to 656 feet across.
Scientists say the asteroid began coming apart early last
year. They theorize sunlight is slowing pulling the asteroid
apart by increasing its rotation.
Aplanetary scientist at the University of California, Los
Angeles, David Jewitt, led the investigation. He says see-
ing the rock fall apart before our eyes is pretty amazing.

FORTBRAGG, N.C. In his immac-
ulate blue dress uniform, Brig. Gen.
Jeffrey A. Sinclair stood ramrod straight
before a judge Thursday and pleaded
guilty to three charges that could send
him to prison for up to 15 years.
It was a remarkable admission sure to
end the military career of a man once
regarded as a rising star among the U.S.
Armys small cadre of trusted battle
Sinclair, 51, still faces ve other
charges stemming from the claims of a
female captain nearly 20 years his jun-
ior who says the general twice forced her
to perform oral sex. But by pleading
guilty to the lesser charges, Sinclairs
lawyers believe they will strengthen his
case at trial by potentially limiting
some of the salacious evidence prosecu-
tors can present.
The former deputy commander of the
82nd Airborne could be sentenced to life
in prison if convicted of the sexual
assaults. Opening statements were
expected Friday.
Asked by judge Col. James Pohl
whether he clearly understood the con-
sequences of his admissions, the deco-
rated veteran of ve combat deploy-
ments answered in a clear voice, with no
emotion: Yes sir.
Pohl accepted Sinclairs plea after
nearly three hours of detailed and often
intimate questions about the married
generals irtations and dalliances with
four women three military ofcers
and one civilian.
The case against Sinclair, believed to
be the most senior member of the U.S.
military ever to face trial on sexual
assault charges, comes as the Pentagon
grapples with revelations of rampant
rape and sexual misconduct within the
ranks. The U.S. Senate on Thursday
blocked a bill that would have stripped
senior military commanders of their
authority to prosecute rapes and other
serious offenses in the ranks. The bill
was rmly opposed by the Pentagon.
The general pleaded guilty to having
improper relationships with two female
Army ofcers and to committing adul-
tery with a third, the captain who was
his longtime mistress. Adultery is a
crime in the military.
He also admitted to violating orders
by possessing pornography and to con-
duct unbecoming of an ofcer and a gen-
tleman. After he knew he was under
investigation, Sinclair also admitted
deleting nude photos from a personal
email account sent by a civilian woman
with whom he was childhood friends.
Sinclairs lawyer Richard Scheff said
before the plea that his client was tak-
ing responsibility for his actions, but
also strengthening his legal position.
By admitting guilt on the three charges
for which there is the strongest evi-
dence, the married father of two hoped to
narrow the focus of the trial to charges
that rely heavily on the testimony and
credibility of his former mistress.
Gen. Sinclair admits guilt on
three counts; denies assault

Other water options
This is in response to Madelon
Deys letter in the Feb. 21 Daily
Journal concerning desalination. She
is most correct, in that water can be
desalinated. However, it is the most
costly means by which fresh water can
be obtained. In addition to desalinating
water, we can treat our waste water and
make that drinkable in about 30 min-
utes but that is too expensive. The best
way to obtain drinking and irrigation
water is the way we have been doing it
for centuries and this is collecting rain
water and storing it in cisterns and
reservoirs. We should have been build-
ing storage and water-collecting facili-
ties since the drought in the 70s and
we are now paying the price for gov-
ernment inaction and short-sighted-
ness. Since then, we have doubled our
population without providing water for
the population increase.
It will take years to build desalina-
tion plants, plus they are huge and
burn oil, lots of it. There, too, we will
have to build places to store the water
until it is needed, which can affect the
environment and will anger some peo-
ple who forget we cannot live without
The cheapest and quickest way to get
water, and get it soon, is to bring it to
California from northern climates. Let
us bring in 6- or 8-inch irrigation
pipes and pump water from the north
into Shasta and Orville reservoirs.
These pipes are easily put down, quick-
ly hooked together and can travel great
distances. The U.S. Army Corps
Engineers could easily do the job, or
the Navy Seabees. The problem is to
get it done and done quickly, which is
difcult when politicians are involved.
If only Sacramento cared about water
for the citizens ... we would be in great
shape. However, they care more about
people drinking too much soda water,
and so we have nothing to drink but
soda water.

The service dog scam
Did you know that a puppy can be a
service dog and that it does not have to
be registered or have appropriate iden-
tication? Here is what the law states,
per the Department of Justice website:
How can I tell if an animal is really
a service animal and not just a pet?
A: Some, but not all, service animals
wear special collars and harnesses.
Some, but not all, are licensed or certi-
ed and have identication papers. If
you are not certain that an animal is a
service animal, you may ask the per-
son who has the animal if it is a serv-
ice animal required because of a disabil-
ity. However, an individual who is
going to a restaurant or theater is not
likely to be carrying documentation of
his or her medical condition or disabil-
ity. Therefore, such documentation
generally may not be required as a con-
dition for providing service to an indi-
vidual accompanied by a service ani-
mal. Although a number of states have
programs to certify service animals,
you may not insist on proof of state
certication before permitting the
service animal to accompany the per-
son with a disability.
What must I do when an individual
with a service animal comes to my
A: The service animal must be per-
mitted to accompany the individual
with a disability to all areas of the
facility where customers are normally
allowed to go. An individual with a
service animal may not be segregated
from other customers.
Now, check how you can take your
dog anywhere. Its easy.

Read the tea leaves
Anyone paying attention can see the
tectonic shift in the Middle East
involving the second largest military
power, Egypt. At the beginning of the
Obama presidency, our fearless leader
made a speech at Cairo University in
which he implied he knew what he was
doing and would change things.
The Islamic Winter (formerly known
as the Arab Spring) has now set in, and
no amount of ducking and diving by
the Obama administration can avoid
the conclusion that the White Houses
foreign policy in the Middle East failed
badly. There may be some dispute
about whose fault that is, but one result
is undeniable. Egypt, which used to be
our ally and which relied heavily on
U.S. military support, has turned to the
The most signicant U.S. ally left in
the region is Israel. Jordan is impor-
tant but too small to direct things.
Thats why President Obama should
pay close attention to Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about
Iran. If he doesnt, with the Iranian
centrifuges spinning while our presi-
dent ddles, it looks more and more
like he is in bed with Ayatollah
Khamenei than promoting U.S. inter-
ests, which is, after all, his number-

In that spirit, Senate President Pro
Tem Darrell Steinberg introduced
Senate Bill 1177, which seeks to pro-
tect the privacy of children using edu-
cational software and to prevent com-
panies from tailoring ads for them.
Congress should set a national
standard prohibiting websites from
tracking kids Internet movements,
and using that information to market
to them. Bills are pending in the
House and Senate. But California
should not wait for the feds to act.
Arecent New York Times story
noted that educational software
intended for minors was a $7.97 bil-
lion business in 2011-12. It is sure to
grow, as teachers nd new ways to use
online services and applications to
help teach, and to tailor lessons for
individual children.
Last year, Steinberg won approval
for a broader measure prohibiting
Internet markets from knowingly tar-
geting minors, or allowing others to
compile and use personal information
about minors.
Starting in 2015, sites must pro-
vide an erase button so minors can
remove their posts.
Steinberg carried that bill after
reports that kids were targeted with
ads for alcohol, tobacco and diet prod-
ucts, apparently based on the web-
sites they visited.
Amain advocate for both bills is
James Steyer, whose brother, Tom,
has become a major funder of environ-
mentalist causes and politicians.

Local impact of the
supermajority loss
ne of the victims of the Democrats loss of the
supermajority in the Senate appears to be the
idea of lowering the threshold for new local
taxes to 55 percent. That idea was one aimed to ease the
burden on local governments seeking money for facili-
ties such as libraries or infrastructure needs, transporta-
tion and housing. It was envisioned as a way to ease the
sting of the loss of redevelopment agencies since much
of the money from them was used for housing and other
city improvements. Another aspect to it would be to
lower the threshold for school parcel taxes from two-
thirds to 55 percent, though no
legislation has ofcially been
introduced and, because of
Proposition 13, any change
would have to be approved by
California voters on the ballot.
The state Senate needs a vote
of two-thirds of its members to
place such an initiative on the
ballot and, with the recent
leaves of absence of state sena-
tors Ron Calderon (federal cor-
ruption indictment) and Rod
Wright for (voter fraud and per-
jury conviction), that means
once again having to play with Republicans to get heavy
things lifted.
For one, it means changes to the states rainy-day
reserve policy and the $11.1 million water bond on the
November ballot wont be possible without help from
Republicans. And while the current drought declaration
has pro-water bond legislators already touting its neces-
sity, Republicans will want some concessions when it
comes to funding new reservoirs. In an election year, it is
not likely that any Republican will jump on board any-
thing close to a tax increase.
So that will make for an interesting spring, but the fact
that the idea of lowering of the tax threshold also has a
direct impact locally.
The city of Belmont has taken steps to explore the pos-
sibility of asking voters for a new tax to assist in fund-
ing $140 million in deferred improvement projects for its
streets, sewers, storm drains, parks and civic buildings.
In January, the council approved a $30,000 expenditure
for a public poll to determine specic concerns and if
there is enough support for a measure dedicated to city
infrastructure needs. Belmonts streets are poorly rated
and other municipalities have passed bond measures to
pay for street improvements. But its far easier to pass
such a measure with 55 percent voter support than two-
Thats true, said Belmont Mayor Warren Lieberman, but
the city is still moving ahead with its plan to determine
if its residents would support such a measure, and at what
level. Still, any change at the state level is worth paying
attention to, he said.
It is denitely something that is in the back of your
mind, he said.
In San Mateo, Councilman David Lim reported he was
surprised about the level of support for some sort of bond
measure that would specically go toward street repairs
when he held an outreach meeting in January. It was men-
tioned in the councils goal-setting meeting in February
as an idea, but again, the threshold may make such a pro-
posal impossible, at least for now.
One thing that wont be affected by the loss of the
supermajority is legislation that would create a transi-
tional kindergarten grade level in which all 4-year-old are
eligible. Education ofcials tout the effort, while others
say the additional cost will be too great for a state in the
nascent stages of an economic recovery.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, who co-authored
the legislation with Senate President Darrell Steinberg,
D-Sacramento, said it wont need a supermajority to pass
but still faces a governor who has expressed a reticence
to fund new programs. But Gov. Jerry Brown is seeking
$250 million in cap-and-trade money for his pet high-
speed rail project and the cost of the new transitional
kindergarten is about the same. Hill said there may be
some compromise that sees both programs getting the
And that supermajority loss may not last long. If
Wright is expelled or resigns from the state Senate May
15, the governor could call for a special election in
August. If one candidate gets more than 50 percent, then
there is no need for a runoff and if that candidate is a
Democrat, bam, supermajority restored.

Big movers
By Ken Sweet
NEWYORK Investors were look-
ing for any reason to look past the
cold weather that has hampered the
U.S. economy in the last few weeks,
and they found it.
Stocks mostly rose Thursday, lifted
by a report that showed the number of
people who filed for unemployment
benefits fell last week to the lowest
level in three months. The gains were
enough to give the Standard & Poors
500 index its third all-time high this
The report on unemployment
claims was one of the first bits of
good news investors have gotten on
the economy after weeks of data that
showed the U.S. recovery temporarily
slowing because of the severe winter.
Investors are putting more weight
on the data that makes sense and
ignoring the data that was impacted
by the harsh winter weather, said
Kate Warne, a market strategist with
Edward Jones.
The S&P 500 index rose 3.22
points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,877.03.
Staples fell the most of any stock
in the index after the office supply
chain said it would close 10 percent
of its stores. Nearly half of its sales
are now generated online. The stock
fell $2.05, or 15 percent, to $11. 35.
Staples is the second major brick-
and-mortar retailer this week to
announce widespread closures. Two
days ago, RadioShack said it would
close as many as 1,100 locations as
part of a restructuring effort.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 61.71 points, or 0.4 percent, to
16, 421. 89. The Nasdaq composite
fell 5.85 points, or 0.1 percent, to
4, 352. 13.
The number of people who filed for
unemployment benefits fell by
26,000 last week to 323,000, accord-
ing to the Labor Department. That
was far less than the 337,000 claims
economists had expected, according
to FactSet, and a sign that fewer peo-
ple are being laid off.
Typically investors would not put
much weight in the weekly unem-
ployment report because the numbers
can be volatile. But with the rest of
the data they have at their disposal
tainted by the weather, including
Fridays closely watched government
jobs report, investors dont have
much to work with at the moment.
The winter storms died down last
week, so this data is the first clean
reading on the economy.
The figures for weekly unemploy-
ment claims coming up over the next
several weeks will be the freshest
data investors will have, strategists
We wont get a clean reading on
the economy until we get through
this bad weather, said Quincy
Krosby, a market strategist at
Prudential Financial.
Expectations for the February job
numbers are low. Economists expect
that employers added 145,000 jobs
last month and that the unemploy-
ment rate held steady at 6.6 percent.
Before the bad winter weather hit
much of the country starting in
December, the U.S. economy was cre-
ating around 225,000 jobs a month.
Outside the U.S., investors
remained concerned about Ukraine,
where tensions have been escalating
over Russias deployment of troops
to Ukraines Crimea Peninsula.
Moscow-backed Crimean officials
said Thursday that the region would
hold a referendum to decide whether it
should be annexed by Russia.
President Barack Obama declared that
the referendum would violate interna-
tional law.
In other markets, bond prices fell.
The yield on the 10-year U.S.
Treasury note rose to 2.73 percent
from 2.71 percent Wednesday. Gold
rose $11.50 to $1,351.80 an ounce.
Gold has risen 2 percent this week as
the tensions in Ukraine escalated.
Stocks mostly higher as job market improves
Apple CFO to retire, successor named
CUPERTINO Apples longtime Chief
Financial Ofcer Peter Oppenheimer will
retire in September and hell be replaced by
the companys corporate controller.
The announcement Tuesday comes one day
after Goldman Sachs named Oppenheimer as
one of its 13 board members.
Oppenheimer, who has been CFO for the
past decade, will begin transferring respon-
sibilities to Luca Maestri in June.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says the company
knew Maestri would ultimately succeed
Oppenheimer when it recruited him as corpo-

Judge rules for Samsung
in dispute with Apple
SAN JOSE Afederal judge in California
on Thursday denied Apples request to perma-
nently ban Samsung from selling 23 older-
model smartphones and tablets that a jury
found infringed on patents held by the maker
of iPhones and iPads.
Judge Lucy Koh said Apple Inc. failed to
prove that the South Korean companys
patent infringement caused irreparable harm
to Apple sales.
The ruling came as the worlds two biggest
smartphone makers prepare to go to court
again later this month this time over
Apples allegations that Samsungs newest
devices, such as its Galaxy S III, also copied
Apple technology.
Disney laying off

LOS ANGELES Disney is laying off

A Walt Disney Co. spokesman conrmed
the layoffs Thursday.
The move narrows the companys focus on
mobile and social games that use key Disney
characters. Some games that Disney acquired
when it bought social game maker Playdom
in 2010 for $563 million, such as Sorority
Life, will be discontinued.
Google barge cruising

SAN FRANCISCO Googles mystery

Alabama joins agricultural
lawsuit against California
MONTGOMERY, Ala. Alabama has
joined a lawsuit to block California from
imposing its own agricultural standards on
out-of-state producers.
State Attorney General Luther Strange said
Thursday that Alabama is looking to prevent
California from requiring that only eggs
from chickens housed in large, roomy cages
be sold in the state.
Strange says Alabama is one of the coun-
trys top egg producers and USDA statistics
show Alabama produced more than 2.1 mil-
lion eggs in 2012.
Strange says California voters passed a
proposition requiring farmers to provide free
ranges or larger cages for their chickens.
Citing fears that the law would put California
farmers at a disadvantage, Strange says the
state added provisions making the law apply
to out-of-state producers as well.

Ever since the Burlingame boys bas-
ketball team lost to Half Moon Bay in the
finals of the Burlingame Lions Club
Tournament in December, Panther fans
as well as basketball fans along the
Peninsula anticipated the teams next
The general consensus was that rematch
would take place in the Peninsula Athletic
League Tournament finals, but the
Cougars were upended by Mills in the
seminals as the Panthers went on to win
the tournament.
The two finally hooked up again
Thursday night in Burlingame as the
Panthers hosted the Cougars in the fth-
place game of the Central Coast Section
Open Division bracket.
And unlike Tuesday night when point
guard Frankie Ferrari lit up Leigh for 46
points, Thursday night was a more typi-
cal performance from Burlingame: have
three or four players score in double g-
ures, play tough defense and wear down
the opponent.
The Panthers (26-4) did just that in
recording a 56-39 win over Half Moon
Bay (24-5).
I kind of knew [Half Moon Bay] was
going to game-plan for me, Ferrari said.
Youre not going to score 46 points
every game.
But Id rather score four or ve points
and win, than score 100 points and lose.
Ferrari found a happy medium between
those two ends of the spectrum as he
scored a game-high 19 points on 6-of-17
shooting from the eld and 6 of 9 from
the free-throw line.
He was aided as he has all season
by the contributions from Nick Loew and
Justin Gutang. Loew finished with 16
points and 12 rebounds, while Gutang
added 13 points.
It was Gutang who helped the Panthers
pick up the scoring slack when it became

Aragon boys basketball coach Sam Manu
couldnt turn off the adrenaline when he got
home following the Dons exhausting, gruel-
ing 94-93 triple-overtime win over Aptos
Wednesday night in the Central Coast
Section Division III seminal.
I couldnt sleep at all, Manu said. I
stayed up doing stuff until four in the morn-
What a game.
The third-seeded Dons will have a couple
days to recover before facing No. 5 Valley
Christian in the Division III championship
game at 4 p.m. Saturday at Santa Clara
We have practice [Thursday], but I think
the five starters are just going to drink
Gatorade, Manu said.
It is Aragons first CCS championship
game appearance since losing 77-61 to Palo
Alto in 2003.
Considering the Dons starters play heavy
minutes, rest and recovery is the name of the
game. Manu used only two or three players
off the bench Wednesday night and, with the
condition the starters are in, its a wonder
Aragon has gotten to where they are.
First, Manu said center Kono Filimoehala-
Egan will miss the nals after undergoing
previously scheduled shoulder surgery
Thursday. His availability would have been in
doubt regardless because Manu said
Filimoehala-Egan separated his shoulder in
the second quarter Wednesday.
Given that, I think that makes us the
underdog, Manu said. Were going to have
to reach deep into the bench and see who can
show up and help us in the middle.
Wing player Toby Liebergesell, who scored
a game-high 31 points and kept the Dons in
the game against Aptos, reaggravated a knee
problem after banging it against the
Mariners. Point guard Alex Manu retweaked
the ankle he sprained in the seminals and
was cramping up late in Wednesdays game.
Guard Trevor Pagaduan was limping around
with cramps and wing Kevin Hahn has played
with a banged-up shoulder nearly all season
The Dons will need to be a full strength
against a Warriors team that shut down
Hillsdale in the other semifinal game
Wednesday night at Foothill College. Valley
Christian held the Knights to one-shot pos-
sessions for the bulk of the game and then
displayed a good balance outside and inside
on the offensive end.
Manu said he hasnt seen the Warriors since
the Burlingame Lions Club Tournament in
December and said they are a different team.
They look completely different. Before,
they looked like football players playing
basketball, Manu said. Now, theyre just a
lot more athletic and instinctive. You have
to play solid and play your game.
Of utmost importance will be rebounding.
Its not necessary to win the rebounding bat-
tle, but its critical to control the defensive
To try to negate some of the Warriors size,
the Dons will push the pace as they have all
season. But Manu knows he cant get into a
full-blown track meet with a shallow bench.
But his team knows no other way.
I dont think they know what it means to
play slow, Manu said. Were going to live
and die at our pace.
Manu realizes there will be times, however,
where his team will have to set up in the half-
court offense. At that point, the Dons will
need to turn off the jets and execute the
We like to y and get out there, but when
theyre waiting for us, we have to be patient
and precise. Its taken us all year to under-
stand that, Manu said. Well probably have
to play our best game of the year (Saturday).
We have to know all our responsibilities.

Quick turnaround for Dons
By Terry Bernal
The weather is surprisingly baseball friendly
on a late March morning as the San Mateo
baseball team holds one of its rst Saturday
brunches of the season.
New Bearcats manager Nick Sanzeri is hop-
ing the brunches will become a tradition. On
this particular day, its a relaxing gig as he
enjoys the frosh-soph team taking on Lowell
in one of the rst non-league games of the year.
Sanzeri is poised to begin his rst turn at the
helm of a varsity baseball team, as the rookie
coach takes over a program that went through
its share of ups-and-downs last year. But the
start of the 2014 season sees Bearcats baseball
back on track, and the young Sanzeri is a big
reason why.
Ive always wanted to be a coach, said
Sanzeri, now 22. Even being a catcher when I
was younger, I would always sit on the bench
in between innings and was just try to study the
game. When Id go home at night, Id turn on
MLB Network and Id be at my computer and
Im studying plays.
The rst order of business for Sanzeri was to
re-establish a two-team baseball program after
San Mateo had to drop its frosh-soph squad in
the middle of last season. The impromptu
move came with the resignation of former
manager Jesse Velez and saw athletic director
Jeff Scheller ofcially instated as head coach.
Last year, not having a frosh-soph team
really put kind of a black eye on the program,
Scheller said. And San Mateo has had some
strong history with baseball. So, we really just
wanted to get it back rolling and know that San
Mateo baseball is still signicant.
Amajor step in the right direction has been
to refresh the eld for the new season. Sanzeri
has led the way in resurfacing the dirt ineld,
laying new seed on the ineld grass, and
installing a much needed new home plate.
Were doing the best we can, Sanzeri said.
Its denitely a rebuilding process.
Sanzeri begins
second baseball
life at San Mateo

Aragons Toby Liebergesell,left,along with
the rest of the Donsstarters,played nearly

Local sports roundup
By Terry Bernal
Ever so briefly, the Carlmont
softball trailed for the rst time
this season when Milpitas
scratched out a second-inning run.
The Scots quickly claimed the
lead, and eventually the game, to
roll to a 7-1 win yesterday at
home, handing Milpitas (2-2) its
second straight loss.
Grabbing a 2-1 lead in the bot-
tom of the second, Carlmont later
sent 10 batters to the plate during
a ve-run fourth, tabbing six hits
in the inning. And all the contact
was loud.
While Scots head coach Jim
Liggett takes pride in a lineup of
nine hitters who can all really hit,
the catalyst thus far has been sen-
ior outeld Missy Pekarek. The
sweet-swinging lefty was 2 for 3
with two RBIs and a run scored
yesterday, and is now 7 for 9
(.777) on the young season.
Usually in the beginning of the
season were a little bit slow (get-
ting the bats going), but this year
were just really getting on top of
it, Pekarek said. I guess whatev-
er were doing is working.
It sure is. Not only is the squad
off to a 3-0 start, but the Scots
have outscored opponents 29-2 in
the process. That Pekarek hits
toward the bottom of the order is a
testament to how loaded the Scots
lineup is. But after emerging as
Carlmonts top hitter while hit-
ting out of the No. 8 spot in the
order though the rst two games,
she was bumped up to the No. 7
spot, yesterday.
She can hit the ball, Liggett
said. Shes in a streak right now
and shes been hitting the ball
Another change Liggett made to
the lineup yesterday was in the cir-
cle. After pitcher Rebecca Faulkner
was nails through two games
including a two-hit shutout in
Carlmonts 13-0 win over Notre
Dame-Belmont on opening day
Liggett decided to spell his ace
left-hander with junior right-han-
der Mariko Kondo.
Kondo was superb over five
innings of work, allowing one run
on two hits, striking out six
against one walk, and also set
down in order the final five
Milpitas batters she faced. And
with Faulkner bound for UC
Riverside on a full scholarship
next year, Kondo is in line to
inherit the ace moniker next
Shell probably be our No. 1
next year, Liggett said. Shes a
good kid, a good hitter, and shes
got pretty good stuff. And we dont
want to pitch Bec too much early
and wear her out.
Faulkner did come on in relief of
Kondo to start the sixth, and the
southpaw dazzled to close it out,
allowing two hits over two
shutout innings while striking out
three and totaling 33 pitches.
Milpitas struck first against
Kondo in the second. Trojans
catcher Shaye Felix singled to lead
off the inning then advanced to
second on a passed ball. With one
out, Mia Agloro scorched a double
that one-hopped the wall in left
field to score Felix, giving
Milpitas a 1-0 lead.
But in the bottom of the frame,
the Scots quickly claimed the lead.
Kondo, out of the cleanup spot,
reached on a Milpitas ineld error.
Kondo stole second and Kirra
Loucks walked. With one out,
Pekarek got the Scots on the board
with a double to left-center to
score both base runners, giving
Carlmont a 2-1 edge.
In the fth, the Scots blew it
open. Pekarek promptly lined a
single to center to lead off the
inning. She moved to second on a
wild pitch, and with one out, the
Carlmont slugs way
to third straight win

But the 24-year-old right-hander struggled
on Thursday.

ve hits in one inning in an 8-8 tie between
the As and Arizona Diamondbacks in 10
He didnt allow a run in his rst spring
training start after going 5-3 with a 2.67
ERAas a rookie in 2013.
As good as my changeup was last week, it
was hit or miss. It was up and it got hit pret-
ty hard today, Gray said. Its just some-
thing thats going to take a little more work.
I felt really, really good so I'm happy with
Gray said he needs to get back to trying to

Its just been pitch selection. I have to
learn to get guys out with limited stuff, Gray
Gray was asked if he was accomplished
enough to be able to work
on things instead of
focusing on stats in
spring training.
Ten (big league) starts,
I don't know how accom-
plished that is, he
said.Brandon Moss and
Sam Fuld hit home runs
for the A's, who jumped
out to a 3-0 lead.
Arizona starter Trevor Cahill got through
three innings, but gave up six runs and eight
hits. He struck out four.
Martin Prado continued his hot start to
spring training for Arizona with a two-run
double, and is 11 for 18 in six games.The
Diamondbacks scored four runs in the rst
inning and three in the bottom of the eighth
to rally for the tie.
Gerardo Parra went 2 for 3 with two RBIs
and a stolen base.
Gray pitched two shutout innings on
March 1, but gave up four straight hits before
getting an out on Thursday.
They hit some fastballs out over the
plate, but you're going to have outings like
that, A's manager Bob Melvin said. Not
really worried too much about him. If ever
there's a time for him to work on a changeup,
it's in spring training.
Cahill struggled from the start, the former
A's pitcher gave up four straight hits in the
rst inning after getting two outs. Cahill has
allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 6 1/3
innings in spring training.
Got ahead of some guys and couldn't put
them away. They jumped on some rst-pitch-
es, Cahill said. Kind of up in the zone a lit-
tle bit. Other than that, mechanically I felt a
little better than the last start.
Shortstop Addison Russell might not be
ready for the big leagues just yet, but the top
prospect showed some offensive potential
with a double off veteran closer J.J. Putz and
a triple in the ninth inning after which he
scored a run to tie the score at 8.
Outelder Tony Campana is trying to win a
backup outeld spot, and helped his cause by
going 2 for 4 with a stolen base.
Diamondbacks right-hander Bronson
Arroyo was at the team facility Thursday after
recent treatment for a bulging disk in his
back that caused him to miss a spring train-
ing start, and is apparently feeling better.
Arroyo, who has pitched three innings in
his only start of the spring, was scratched
from Tuesday's start for an MRI on his back,
which revealed the injury. But manager Kirk
Gibson seemed to downplay the diagnosis.
I think he wanted to throw today
(Thursday) but I don't know that was in the
cards. Maybe tomorrow, Gibson said before
the game. Just kind of want to make sure
we're on solid footing before introducing
twisting in his back again. He's had this
before. It's kind of resolving itself like it has
in the past.
Gibson said Arroyo is still on track to start
the regular season in his spot in the rotation.
Inelder Alberto Callaspo is dealing with a
back problem that could delay his spring
training debut at rst base. Melvin said a
decision will be made Friday.
The As on Friday will send left-hander
Scott Kazmir to the mound for his Oakland
spring training debut. Its against Arizona in
Phoenix. Kazmir was one of the teams top
acquisitions in the offseason. The
Diamondbacks will go with left-hander Wade
Miley against the As. Closer candidate
Addison Reed gets his chance to pitch after
Putz threw an inning on Thursday. The two
are competing for the job.
A's, Diamondbacks finish tied in 10 innings
Sonny Gray
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Tim Hudson extend-
ed his spring training scoreless streak to ve
innings, Pablo Sandoval homered to lead off a
three-run fth and the San Francisco Giants
defeated the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 Thursday.
Hudson, who didnt allow a hit in two score-
less innings against Arizona in his rst start as
a Giant on March 2, again looked good in his
comeback from a fractured ankle while with
Atlanta in July.
He walked two and struck out three in three
innings and helped himself defensively by
starting a double play after he walked the lead-
off man in the rst.
Left-hander Tony Cingrani pitched three
scoreless innings in his start for the Reds.
Sandovals homer and run-scoring hits by Juan
Perez and Angel Pagan came against right-han-
der Chien-Ming Wang.
Sandoval continues to show signs that he is
ready for a big year after losing about 30
pounds over the winter. He is hitting .308 with
a home run and ve RBIs.
He is really, really athletic. He is an athlete
whether hes 20 pounds lighter or 20 pounds
heavier, Hudson said.
Hudson didnt appear as sharp as he did
against Arizona, but said his push toward the
regular season continues to be a work in
The last (third) inning today, I think I
turned a corner and made pitches on both sides
of the plate, said Hudson, who signed a two-
year, $23 million free-agent deal in the offsea-
Its been eight months since the surgery
and it (ankle) feels good, all things considered.
I didnt think about it (in the rst inning) when
I got the ground ball and threw (to second
base). The double play was a pretty good test
for it.
The Giantsve projected starters have com-
bined for 20 innings, allowing just one run and
11 hits and three walks in seven games this
Second baseman Marco Scutaro likely wont
play in a game this weekend as rst thought.
Manager Bruce Bochy wants to be cautious as
the veteran deals with back issues.
The Giants made player moves Thursday.
They optioned rst baseman Angel Villalona,
who was on the 40-man roster, to Triple-A
Fresno. Sent to the teams minor-league camp
were pitchers Clayton Blackburn, Ty Blach,
Chris Heston, Jose Casilla, Kyle Crick, Sandy
Rosario and Rafael Dolis. Also, inelder Joe
Panik, outelders Mac Williamson and Javier
Herrera, and catchers Jeff Arnold and Ben Turner.

The U.S. mens national soccer team is
coming to San Franciscos Candlestick Park
in May to play an exhibition game as part
of a send-off series before the team heads to
the World Cup in Brazil this summer, team
ofcials announced Thursday.
The U.S. team will host Azerbaijan at
Candlestick at 7 p.m. on May 27.
It will be the teams rst and last visit to
the stadium, which was completed in 1960
but is being torn down later this year or in
early 2015.
The San Francisco 49ers, the longtime
tenants at Candlestick, are moving to their
new stadium in Santa Clara for the upcoming
NFL season.
The U.S. team has only played once
before in San Francisco,
hosting Japan in an exhibition match at
AT&T Park in 2006.
The soccer match is the rst in a three-
game send-off series, with the other two
games taking place in June against Turkey
in Harrison, N.J., and against Nigeria in
Jacksonville, Fla.
We have some fantastic opponents that
will help us get prepared for the teams we
will meet in the World Cup, and also the
opportunity to experience different climates
and conditions in the venues, U.S. head
coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a state-
We know there will be awesome atmos-
pheres in each of the stadiums, Klinsmann
said. Its the perfect way to start our jour-
Following the send-off series, the U.S.
team will head to Brazil, where it will face
Ghana, Portugal and Germany in round-
robin play to start the World Cup in mid-
Ticket information for the game at
Candlestick Park will be released at a later
date, team ofcials said. The game will also
air on ESPN2 and UniMas.
Candlestick to

warmup game

DORAL, Fla. Tiger Woods only made it
through 10 holes Thursday this time
because of the weather, not his back.
The debut of the new Blue Monster, and
the return of Woods, received an incomplete
grade Thursday when the opening round of
the Cadillac Championship was halted more
than two hours because of menacing thun-
Harris English was among only six play-
ers who nished the round, hitting 5-iron
into the par-3 ninth hole and rolling in a
45-foot birdie putt for a 3-under 69.
The golf course and the worlds No. 1
player showed enough.
Woods, who walked off after 13 holes
Sunday in the Honda Classic because of
lower back pain and spasms, said he warmed
up well and felt good during the delay. His
golf didnt look all that great. He was 2-over
par through 10 holes, ending the day with a
wedge that came up some 20 yards short of
his target, leading to a three-putt for bogey
from about 55 feet.
Im ready to go back out tomorrow and
play well, he said.
Trump National Doral, completely over-
hauled by Gil Hanse, showed plenty of bite
on a windy, cloudy afternoon. Jason Dufner
was going along beautifully for 10 holes
until he struggled to nd fairways in a cross-
wind. Brett Rumford began his round by hit-
ting four shots before he put one in play.
Three went into the water on the par-5 10th,
and he started out with an 11.
Mr. Trump wanted a very tough test on
the Blue Monster, and I think thats what he
got, English said.
The course average was at 73.8.
Dufner, Hunter Mahan, Francesco
Molinari and Patrick Reed also were at 3
under when the round was suspended by
darkness. The 62 players who failed to n-
ish will return Friday morning to complete
the round.
Russell Henley, coming off a playoff win
last week at the Honda Classic, made only
one par in six holes on the back nine two
birdies, three bogeys. He was in the group at
2 under that included Masters champion
Adam Scott, who is in the Nos. 1-2-3 group
with Woods and Henrik Stenson.
Stenson might have hit the most memo-
rable shot of the day a cold shank from
the middle of the second fairway that sailed
at a 45-degree angle into bushes.
Scott has a chance to replace Woods at No.
1 in the world if he wins this World Golf
Championship and Woods nishes worse
that fth.
Rory McIlroy got off to a blazing start
with four birdies in ve holes, only to end
the back nine with back-to-back bogeys
with a long three-putt bogey and a tee shot
on the 18th that caught the edge of the water
and bounded into the hazard.
That might be the most penal aspect of
the new Doral. Anything hit toward some of
the edges feeds toward the water, and theres
a lot of water in play.
Not even English was immune. His tee
shot on the 18th found the water, and he
still had 4-iron to get to the green. But he
bounced back on the par-5 rst hole by
smashing a tee shot so far with help from
the wind and the rm fairways that he had a
7-iron left from 213 yards. He hit that to 12
feet for a two-putt birdie, and he was bogey-
free the rest of the way.
Dufner said he hasnt had to think his way
around a golf course this much since he was
at Muireld last year for the British Open,
even though the tracks are nothing alike.
This used to be a golf course where you
grab your driver on every hole, swing for
the fences and play from there, he said.
You cant get away with that here at Doral
Dufner didnt feel comfortable with driver
on the 14th, so he laid back and had 236
yards left to the par 4. He hit 3-iron and
made birdie, anyway. Other times, he failed
to dial it back and paid the price.
Youre not going to go through this tour-
nament on this golf course anymore with no
bogeys, he said. Everybody is going to
be making some bogeys here and there, so
pretty happy with where Im at.
Doral gets off to slow start
SAN JOSE Joe Thornton scored the
tiebreaking goal with 5:39 left in regulation to
help the San Jose Sharks overcome a two-goal
decit to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-3 on
Thursday night.
Justin Braun started the comeback with a goal
late in the second and Patrick Marleau and Brent
Burns scored tying goals earlier in the third for
the Sharks, who have 10 wins and one tie in
their last 11 home games against Pittsburgh.
Burns added an empty-net goal and Antti Niemi
made 19 saves for San Jose.
Olli Maatta scored two goals and Chris Kunitz
also scored for the Penguins, who last won at
the Shark Tank on Oct. 22, 1997. Jeff Zatkoff
made 42 saves in his rst appearance since beat-
ing Los Angeles on Jan. 30.
But Zatkoff would probably like another
chance to stop the goal scored by Thornton. On
what looked like an innocent play, Thornton
ipped a shot from the blue line that fooled
Zatkoff and went in over his shoulder. It gave
the Sharks just their third win all season when
trailing after two periods.
The goal capped a wild third period that fea-
tured the Sharks tying the game with a short-
handed goal, falling back behind and then tying
the game again all in a span of 1:34.
The scoring spree started after Matt Nieto was
given a double-minor for high-sticking Simon
Despres. The Sharks killed off the rst penalty
and then tied the game at 2 on a spectacular goal
from Marleau, who took a pass from Jason
Demers, faked out Evgeni Malkin and then beat
Zatkoff with a backhand.

Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris
Culliver is continuing his outreach
to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender community more than
a year after his anti-gay remarks
leading up to the Super Bowl.
The San Francisco Bay Times
announced Thursday that Culliver
conducted his rst interview with
an LGBTmedia outlet, sharing how
he changed his thinking. Culliver,
who missed the 2013 season
because of a torn anterior cruciate
ligament in his left knee sustained
during training camp, underwent
sensitivity training and began
doing other outreach work.
Culliver has worked with The
Trevor Project, an organization
that provides crisis and suicide
intervention to lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender youth.
I truly appreciate the staff at the
Trevor Project for allowing me to
grow and educating me on the
issues affecting the LGBTQ com-
munity, Culliver said Thursday in
a statement to The Associated
Press. I have learned so much and
made some really great friends. I
will continue my commitment to
the organization and to their
youths and stand rm with hope
that one day that all individuals
regardless of sex, race, or creed
will be treated with dignity and
respect from all.
During Super Bowl media day in
2013 at the Superdome in New
Orleans, Culliver responded to
questions from comedian Artie
Lange by saying he wouldnt wel-
come a gay player in the locker
room. He also said the 49ers didnt
have any homosexual players and,
if they did, those players should
leave. He later apologized, facing a
large group of Super Bowl media
members for nearly an hour.
Chris has grown immensely
from his words and has committed
to continue to grow as a human,
particularly around matters around
the LGBTQ community, his publi-
cist, Theodore Palmer, said
Thursday. He believes that every
individual has a right to love the
way they choose to love and cele-
brate the differences of others on a
daily basis.
In fact, Culliver told the Bay
Times he hopes to work on a proj-
ect with University of Missouri
defensive end Michael Sam, who
would become the NFLs rst open-
ly gay player. Culliver also
applauded Nets center Jason
Collins, who became the first
openly gay NBA player last
I applaud Michael and Jason for
their courage, Culliver told the
Bay Times. I have absolutely no
problem playing and interacting
with someone from the LGBTQ
community and look forward to
connecting with Michael soon on
some projects.
The 25-year-old Culliver, a third-
round draft pick in 2011 out of
South Carolina, made 47 tackles
with two interceptions and a forced
fumble during the 2012 season
while starting six games for the
Niners. They lost in the Super
Bowl that season to Baltimore.

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Tuesday, Sanzeri celebrated what he hopes is
the rst of many milestones, as the Bearcats
downed El Camino, 3-2. It marks the rst win
of Sanzeris career, which he aspires to eventu-
ally take to the next level. And if he has his
way, that will come sooner than later. At pres-
ent he has a two-year plan, and is committed to
San Mateo through next year. But Sanzeri said
he wants to go on to coach college baseball,
and his baseball path has already seen him
build a pretty solid resume in the collegiate
After a two-year varsity career at Bellarmine,
the Hillsborough native went to USF where he
was on track to establishing himself as a right-
handed pitcher who could throw a low-90 mph
fastball. However, in the fall of his freshman
year, persistent arm problems culminated in a
pitchers worst nightmare, when, during a
bullpen session, he blew out his elbow.
I was pitching great, Sanzeri said. I was
feeling mechanically sound. I started feeling
some twinging in my elbow. I went down to
the pen in a scrimmage game. I felt something
pop. The next pitch on the radar gun was 86
(mph), and I didnt know what happened.
The injury proved the end of Sanzeris play-
ing career before he was ever even added to the
USF roster. He said the decision to hang em up
took three grueling weeks thereafter, during
which time he ultimately took all his baseball
gear, locked it away in a storage locker, and
tried his best to forget about the sport he
Former USF pitching coach Greg Moore
now the manager at Cal State Northridge
recalled Sanzeris brief career with the Dons.
[Sanzeri] came in, he worked through the
fall, and he was battling the arm injury,
Moore said. He was just growing into a new
environment. He left the school on good
terms, and he represented himself really
well. I think that he was growing as a pitch-
er. I think that he was guring out some things
in his own life. He probably wasnt going to
gobble up a lot of innings in that rst year, but
he was on track to be a very good college
Thats when Sanzeris best friend Julian
Merryweather recommended a change of pace.
Merryweather had pitched at Skyline College
for two years, and soon introduced Sanzeri to
Skyline hitting coach John Quintell. The
effect Quintell had on Sanzeri was immediately
I went up and met [Quintell], and the rst
day he put some video on of me, and hes
breaking down the video, and hes like: How
did you throw 94? You suck. Sanzeri said.
And I was so taken aback by that. But thats
when my relationship with John started. From
that day forward, I basically went up there six
days a week, even seven sometimes, just work-
ing with him.
And so Sanzeri quickly recognized the fates
that just might be conspiring to fulll his life-
long dream of becoming a coach.
It didnt seem like they were [coaches]. It
seemed like we were a family, Sanzeri said.
Thats what I want to bring to [my players at
San Mateo]. Ill remember those guys forever,
man. What they did for me and how they helped
me out. Yeah, I just love those guys.
Sanzeri now nishing his degree Notre
Dame de Namur is still learning the ropes,
as evidenced by a carwash fundraiser he held in
the fall. Per old-school high school tradition,
the team washed cars on a Saturday and took in
approximately $500 to help buy new baseball
gear. However, Sanzeri soon found out the car-
wash fundraisers are now a no-no due to water
conservation guidelines. But the baseball team
did ultimately get compensated.
It was all baseballs money. It goes into
baesballs account, Scheller said.
As for Sanzeris predecessor, Velez who
takes over the varsity team at South San
Francisco this season wished San Mateos
young new manager well.
Hes a young coach, and I remember when I
was a young coach, Velez said. I wish him
well. I wish him a good year and a good career
if he sticks with it.

Scots tallied ve straight hits to knock
Milpitas starter Claire DeLa Cruz out of the

Peterson. And Kondo doubled down the left-
eld line to score Faulkner. With Trojans
left-hander Marie Mosqueda on in relief,
Loucks walked before Danielle Giuliacci

Carlmont a 7-1 lead.
The Scots banged out 10 hits in the game
and are now hitting .422 as a team.
For some reason, this year weve just
been coming out really aggressive and
swinging the bats really well, Pekarek
That reason actually has a name Haley
The former Burlingame legend and Cal
standout took a post as a Carlmont assistant
prior to the season and has been serving as
the Scots hitting and catching coach.
Woods has instilled a front-toss batting
practice regiment that has her hitters bal-
anced and dialed at the plate. In comparison
to last year, when the Scots opened the year
with an amazing pitching streak of ve
straight shutouts in their first game,
Carlmont hit a mere .316 as a team through
its rst three games over a hundred points
less than this season.
This year, since weve been doing more
front toss and stuff like that, weve been
waiting (at the plate much better), Pekarek
said. So, usually were just ahead of [the
ball] too much and we dont have patience,
and this year we have patience.
The Scots right elder has a bit of mojo
working as well. She and fellow outelders
Phipps and Giuliacci have a very specic
routine before they take the eld. The three
teammates all run out to center eld and
then, well, let Pekarek explain the rest.
We do this little pinky thing. Then we
say something, and then we do this hand-
shake and click our feet too, Pekarek said.
Its just this thing we do before every
inning. I dont know why.
Its because you dont mess with a win-
ning streak. And as they have done to start
the year for the past three season, the Scots
are on quite a winning streak.

Panthers build a 27-22 lead at halftime.
I always want to help Frankie and Nick,
Gutang said.
And just as he has all season long, Ferrari
showed he is more than just a scorer. He
came up with four steals, six rebounds and
six assists including a no-look laser to
Loew who nished with a baseline dunk to
cap the scoring for the night with 17 sec-
onds left to play.
Just as important as the offensive contri-
butions, Burlingame also played locked
down defense especially in the second
half. Ferrari helped hold Half Moon Bay
shooting guard Corey Cilia to just 10
points. And after struggling to contain
Cougars center Rico Nuo in the rst half
when he scored 13 points, the Panthers shut
him out in the second half.
Half Moon Bay stayed with Burlingame
for the first two quarters. The Cougars
jumped out to a 6-2 lead, getting four points
from Nuo during the run.
The Panthers answered with a 9-0 run to
take an 11-6 lead with 1:49 left in the rst
quarter, but the Cougars closed the gap to
13-11 at the end of one.
Burlingame quickly pushed its lead to 20-
11 with a 7-0 spurt to start the second
with Robby Baumgartner knocking down a
3-pointer but Half Moon Bay came right
back with a 9-0 run of its own to tie the
game at 20, with Nuo converting a three-
point play and Cilia knocking down a 3 dur-
ing the spurt.
Burlingame nished the half outscoring
Half Moon Bay 7-2 to take a 27-22 lead at
Loew converted a three-point play to start
the second half and Ferrari knocked down a
3, and just like that the Panthers were up 11,
33-22, with 6:11 to play in the third quarter.
Half Moon Bay came right back with ve
straight points from Tommy Nuo to close
the Cougars deficit to 33-27, but the
Panthers again closed the quarter strongly,
outscoring the Cougars 7-0 to take a 40-27
lead into the nal eight minutes.
The teams basically swapped buckets
throughout the nal eight minutes, with
Burlingame pulling away late for the 17-
point win.
By virtue of playing in the Open
Division, neither teams season is over. By
earning a spot in the Open, all eight teams
earn a berth into the Northern California
tournament Burlingame most likely will
play in the Division III bracket, while Half
Moon Bay will probably play in Division
We got the win (Thursday) and were
looking to make some noise (in Nor Cals),
Ferrari said.
It was reported in Thursdays Sports
Lounge that Ferrari set a new single-game
Burlingame scoring record with his 46
points against Leigh.
The record actually belongs to Dan
Uharriet, who scored 55 points in a game in
1995. He broke Carl Hansons record of 51
set in 1990.
Ferraris 46 points is, however, a
Peninsula Athletic League record since the
PAL became what it is in 1996.

BAGHDAD Bombings target i ng
shoppers across central Iraq and clashes
near the militant-held city of Fallujah
killed at least 42 people Thursday, authori-
ties said.
No one claimed responsibility for the
string of bombings that began Thursday
afternoon, mostly from parked car bombs
and one explosive planted in an outdoor
market. However, they bore the hallmarks
of al-Qaida and other Sunni insurgents,
who frequently use car bombs and suicide
attacks to target public areas and govern-
ment buildings in their bid to undermine
confidence in the Shiite-led government.
In Baghdad, a car bomb targeting shop-
pers in the southwestern Amil neighbor-
hood killed seven people and wounded 17,
police said. Abomb at a cafe in Baghdads
Sadr City neighborhood killed four people
and wounded 15, authorities said. A bomb
in a commercial street in central Baghdad
killed three people and wounded 13, police
said, while an explosion near the Green
Zone killed three people and wounded
Another bomb in Baghdads southeast-
ern suburb of Jisr Diyala killed two civil-
ians and wounded seven, police said.
In Hillah, located about 60 miles (95
kilometers) south of Baghdad, two car
bombs killed nine civilians and wounded
28, police said.
A police officer said an explosion also
killed four people and wounded 10 in the
nearby town of Iskandariyah, about 50
kilometers (30 miles) south of the capital.
In Mishada, about 30 kilometers (20
miles) north of Baghdad, a car bomb killed
five civilians and wounded 14, another
police officer said.
Three medical officials confirmed the
casualty figures. All officials spoke on
condition of anonymity as they were not
authorized to release the information.
The attacks came a day after a series of
explosions killed at least 24 people in dif-
ferent parts of Iraq. Such bombings have
increased since last year, along with Sunni
anger over perceived mistreatment and ran-
dom arrests of Sunnis by the authorities.
After authorities broke up a Sunni
protest camp in December, they pulled
security forces out of Fallujah and the
Anbar provincial capital of Ramadi to
relieve tension there. However, that
allowed al-Qaida-linked fighters and their
allies to seize Fallujah and parts of
On Thursday, clashes outside of Fallujah
between militants and Iraqi security forces
killed at least five people and wounded 13,
a local hospital there said.
Widespread chaos nearly tore the country
apart following the 2003 U.S.-led inva-
sion that ousted Saddam Hussein. The vio-
lence ebbed in 2008 after a series of U.S.-
Iraqi military offensives, a Shiite militia
cease-fire and a Sunni revolt against al-
Qaida in Iraq.
But last year, the country saw the high-
est death toll since the worst of the coun-
trys sectarian bloodletting, according to
the United Nations, with 8,868 people
killed. More than 1,400 people have been
killed in Iraq in January and February
alone, according to the U.N., not counting
those killed around Fallujah and Ramadi.
Bombings, clashes in Iraq kill at least 42

His plants are native to California and

industry, he began to take up nature photog-

attract in his backyard.
He sees a large variety of birds including
sparrows, nches and his favorite, hum-
mingbirds, Pagano said.
Theyre just incredible, they y back-
ward, theyre always ghting at the feeders,
theyre very territorial birds, Pagano said.
Theyre the same birds that come here day
after day, year after year, theyre the same
birds. They raise their young here.
He also has a tiered water fountain and
birdbath because, Pagano said, you must
have water in your yard. Thats a must, birds
have to drink like we do.
Many of the plants and structures he has
in his backyard are easy to come by and need
minimal upkeep, Pagano said. Although his
garden is aesthetically attractive, its truly
about giving precedence to the animals and
wildlife that use his yard for shelter and
food, Pagano said.
The certication process was easy and
hes proud to have earned it; he hopes more
will follow and give back to wildlife by pro-
viding miniature habitats in their own back-
yard, Pagano said.
Anyone can become certied if they have
the right combination in their yard. lots
of trees, shrubbery, water and plenty of
nesting sites, Pagano said. Just to partic-
ipate in this whole idea of preserving
wildlife in our urban society. Our backyards
are basically sanctuaries. Because of our
urban sprawl, our bird and animals have
pretty much taken to our backyards. Plus,
just the enjoyment of enjoying nature.

BUILT AGAIN. Celebrating the comple-
tion of the new eastern span of the San
Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, the de
Young Museum presents The Bay Bridge: A
Work in Progress, 19331936, a newly
acquired group of photographs by Peter
Stackpole (19131997) documenting the
bridges original construction in the
1930s. Scaling the dizzying heights of
the unfinished structure over the course of
three intense years, this young photogra-
pher moved freely among the construction
workers, telling their story of death-defy-
ing labor in a series of striking photo-
graphs that record one of the most ambi-
tious public works projects in California
hi st ory. In the midst of the Great
Depression, many artists were drawn to
the spectacular site, inspired by the
bridges modern engineering, to capture
its bold industrial forms and commemorate
the heroism of the American workforce.
The de Young exhibition juxtaposes
Stackpoles photographs with prints and
drawings of the Bay Bridge construction
by his contemporaries, many of whom
earned their living under the auspices of
San Franciscos Federal Art Project.
Artists include Dong Kingman, Otis
Oldfield, Arthur G. Murphy, George Booth
Post and John Stoll. The exhibition also
features a small selection of original stud-
ies from the firm of renowned San
Francisco architect Timothy Pflueger, who
contributed to the design of the original
Bay Bridge. The de Young Museum is
located at 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive,

ASIAN ART MUSEUM. Mandalas are
geometric maps of Himalayan Buddhist
visionary worlds, created by and for prac-
titioners of Vajrayana Buddhism
(Lightning Vehicle Buddhism), a system

the Asian Art Museum configures 15 art-
works from the museums collection to
transform its Tateuchi Gallery into a 3-D
mandala for the special exhibition Enter
the Mandala: Cosmic Centers and Mental

A photo of the arrangement designed by Val Mecchi that will
appear in the de Young Museums show Bouquets to Art.
By Joanne Garrison
Each year, for the last 30 years, more
than 100 of the Bay Areas best orists
usher in spring to San Francisco by
interpreting the de Young Museums
permanent art collection in owers.
The work for the mid-March event
starts early. In August, the marketing
staff and auxiliary volunteers from the
Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
can be found pouring over scores of
photographs of past floral arrange-
ments looking for the one bouquet that
will best represent the next Bouquets
to Art week. The arrangement appears
on posters, the website, the gala invi-
tation and all advertising.
It is a high honor for a orist to be
chosen to participate. It is an even
higher honor to have ones work cho-
sen as the signature image for the fol-
lowing year. Veteran Peninsula orist
Val Mecchi cried when she learned her
2013 entry, which interpreted an 1890
oil painting called Oranges in Tissue
Paper, was chosen for this years 30th
anniversary poster.
Think of the irony I almost did-
nt participate last year, Val told aux-
iliary marketing chair Carol Rossi
over lunch last week in San Carlos.
Last year, Mecchis bouquet was
entered on behalf of the Friends of
Filoli, the volunteer group that
plants, tends and ensures that the gar-
dens surrounding the Woodside man-
sion continue to complement the his-
toric landmark. The group also
ensures that the large house is con-
tinuously decorated with stunning
floral arrangements. Many of the
Filoli volunteers are professional
florists with some being trained by
master florist Anne Patrick. For
example, Val had owned a floral shop,
Blossom Peddler Florists, in
Redwood City for many years before
she became a volunteer at Filoli in
the mid-90s.
Friends of Filoli has participated in
Bouquets to Art since its inception,
with different volunteers taking turns

LOS ANGELES Shaq wants to be
back in a video game.
Shaquille ONeal says hes seeking
redemption for Shaq Fu, his infa-
mous fighting game originally
released in 1994 thats now considered
to be among the worst games ever
made. The four-time NBA champion is
launching a crowd-funding campaign
to create a Shaq Fu follow-up titled
Shaq Fu: ALegend Reborn.
In return, backers could receive any-
thing from a pair of autographed size-
22 sneakers to a pick-up basketball
game and lunch with Shaq, depending
on how much they donate.
The old Shaq Fu was a ha, ha,
ha, said ONeal in a telephone inter-
view this week. This will not be a ha,
ha, ha.
In the original Shaq Fu, ONeals
character stumbles across a kung fu
dojo while taking a break from play-
ing a charity bas-
ketball game in
Tokyo. He discovers
a portal inside to
another dimension
where he engages in
Mortal Kombat-
like battles with
such characters as
an evil mummy,
voodoo priestess
and cyborg police
The game was derided by Shaq fans
for its cheesy story, wonky controls
and blatant attempt to cash in on
ONeals superstar status. Shaq Fu
prompted one group of gamers to cre-
ate the site and post pho-
tos and videos of fans destroying
copies of Shaq Fu in unusual ways.
I dont think it was the worst, said
ONeal. When you talk about the
worst, youve got to talk about sales. I
actually sold a lot of games, but when I
did the rst Shaq-Fu, that was at the
end of analog right before digital came
out. It wasnt a bad game. It wasnt a
good game, but it wasnt awful.
Unlike the original Shaq Fu
released by Electronic Arts, Shaq Fu:
ALegend Reborn will be a beat-em-
up game created by Big Deez
Productions in the style of Streets of
Rage. The studio said A Legend
Reborn will feature Shaq taking on
hordes of enemies with hundreds of dif-
ferent moves, as well as melee
weapons, in various levels. The
games soundtrack will be created by
Steve Molitz and feature remixed rendi-
tions of Shaq songs.
The graphics, animation and story-
line are denitely going to be top of
the line, said ONeal.
Utilizing crowd-funding services
such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter has
become an increasingly popular
method for game developers to fund
new titles. Kickstarter said earlier this
week that more money has been

Casting Jesus: Did he
really look like Pitt?
By Jocelyn Noveck
NEWYORK They say you can never be too rich or too
thin. Surely it goes without saying that you cant be too
good-looking, either, right? Especially
in Hollywood.
But in the popular new lm Son of
God, Jesus is so, well, easy on the eyes
that some are revisiting an age-old ques-
tion that has vexed scholars for cen-
Did Jesus really look like Brad Pitt,
only slightly better?
OK, that exact question hasnt vexed
scholars for centuries. But those who
study religion as portrayed in popular
culture do note that depicting Jesus on the screen has always
been a tricky business, one that balances weighty theolog-
ical concerns how divine to make the son of God, and
how human? with more earthly ones, like how best to sell
movie tickets?
Listen, lms are big business, says Steven Kraftchick,
professor at Emory Universitys Candler School of
Theology. Theyre probably not going to cast Jonah Hill
as Jesus.
Not that Hill wouldnt provide an interesting spin. But the
producers of Son of God, Roma Downey (who also plays
Jesus mother Mary) and her husband Mark Burnett, were
clearly going for something different when they chose the
strapping, 6-foot 3-inch Diogo Morgado, a Portuguese
actor whos dabbled in modeling, for The Bible, their
History channel miniseries. (Son of God is culled from
footage shot for the series).
Downey wont deny her Jesus is good-looking not that
shed get very far with that but explains she was seeking
a subtle mix of qualities. Someone with strength, pres-
ence, charisma, tenderness, kindness, compassion and nat-
ural humility, she says. Someone who could be both a
lion AND a lamb.
Casting came down to the wire. Afew weeks before shoot-
ing was to begin in Morocco, there was still no Jesus.
Downey red off an email to church and business contacts
with the urgent header: Looking for Jesus.
Salvation came from an unexpected place. In Ouarzazate,
Morocco, a member of an advance team remembered an actor
whod been there more than a year earlier on a different proj-
ect. He searched through hotel registries and found the

Then last month Australian actor Sullivan
Stapleton, who plays the Athenian warrior-
general Themistocles, was injured in
Thailand seriously enough to drop out of a
press junket, any potential talk show
appearances and the Hollywood premiere. In
addition, production on his HBO/Cinemax
series Strike Back was postponed for six
months to allow him time to recover.
We miss Sully and we wish Sully was here
today, producer Deborah Snyder said at the
premiere this week. But he had an accident
after leaving the set one night when he was
lming Strike Back so unfortunately hes
Stapletons publicist declined to specify
how or even when he was injured. Several
cast members at the premiere said that while
they had been in touch with the 36-year-old
actor via email, they didnt know what had
happened to him.
The rst 300, directed and co-written by
Zack Snyder from Frank Millers graphic
novel, earned over $450 million worldwide.
It helped make Gerard Butler a star and fea-
tured an appearance from then little-known
Michael Fassbender. Its signature aesthetic,
highlighting muscular real-life bodies
against mythical computer-generated back-
grounds, is repeated in the 3D sequel, in the-
aters Friday.
The year is 480 BC. Greek city-states are
defending against a Persian invasion by sea
at around the same time as the land-based
Spartan ghting in the rst lm. Rodrigo
Santoro returns as menacing Persian king
Xerxes, but Eva Green hijacks the lm with
her unhinged, sexually aggressive perform-
ance as his ally Artemisia, a Persian warrior-
Shes such an extreme character. I think
lots of men are going to be scared of me
from now on, said Green, the French and
British actress perhaps best known for her
role in Casino Royale.
The leather-clad character kisses one man
on the lips after beheading him and later
shares a violent sex scene with Sullivan.
Its kind of a love-hate ght scene. Its not
vanilla sex, thats for sure, she said in an
Artemisia is the latest in a string of dark
and skin-baring roles for the 33-year-
old actress, who also played a witch oppo-
site Johnny Depp in 2012s Dark
It always has to be justied. It cant be
gratuitous or otherwise I would be a porn
star, she said, laughing. Im like a little
bird in real life so thats why I enjoy play-
ing those ladies.
Green, next starring in the Showtime hor-
ror series Penny Dreadful, says whatever
audiences may think of her shipboard
sword-twirling in 300, shes ready to ght
for something else back in Hollywood: a
lighter role.
I hope I wont be typecast forever as the
bitch, she said. In this business, people
put you in boxes . because they lack imagi-
nation. So you have to be a warrior.

Persian invasion, Rise of an Empire is
about the concurrent naval ght, the Battle
of Artemisium.
This may be war by sea, but the ingredi-
ents of 300 are largely unaltered. An out-
numbered band of Greeks staves off a tyran-
nical Persian army below roiling skies of
red and gray. Manly honor is fetishized to a
comical degree. Blood spills like soup.
These two lms, very much intertwined,
provoke a number of questions: Did every-
one forget their shirts? Is this a workout
video? Or is this just the most absurdly
ridiculous thing ever?
Yes and no. In Rise of an Empire, Zack
Snyder moves from the directors chair to
producer (and co-screenwriter with Kurt
Johnstad), leaving Noam Murro to helm the

These are easy lms to make fun of. Its
why perhaps the best thing to come out of
300 was the viral video Its Raining
Men, a clip of the movies Mediterranean
men in various states of brotherly together-
ness, set to the disco tune.
But theyre also precisely the movies they
seek to be: Some kind of grandly warped,
excessively heightened dream of mythical
battle. Its as if Douglas Sirk made a combat
video game.
At least its the women who reign in Rise
of an Empire, though one wouldnt expect
that given its seconds into the lm when
naked breasts make their rst gratuitous
appearance. The male actors here
Sullivan Stapleton as the Greek hero
Themistokles, Santoro, back as the bronzed
Xerxes are easily outdone by the females.
There is Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey of
Game of Thrones) lordly presiding over
Sparta. But as Persian commander
Artemisia, Eva Green rules ferociously over
the lm. She drives the Persians with a war-
riors desperate thirst for revenge and a stare
that makes the men of her army cower.
Its like a reckoning of the macho multi-
tudes of 300. She single-handedly spoils
the landscape of manly torsos.
300: Rise of an Empire, a Warner Bros.
Pictures release, is rated R by the Motion
Picture Association of America for strong
sustained sequences of stylized bloody vio-
lence throughout, a sex scene, nudity and
some language. Running time: 102 min-
utes. One and a half stars out of four.

creating bouquets to represent their group.
When Mecchi was asked to represent them
last year, she at rst turned down the offer.
Although I had been a Filoli volunteer for
two decades and I had never represented our
group at the Bouquets to Art event, I just did-
nt think 2013 was the time. I was in the
process of moving to the Central Coast and I
had a lot on my plate, she said.
Another volunteer did come forward to rep-
resent the group. However, at the last minute,
that volunteer had to back out. Thankfully,
Mecchi reconsidered. She thought to herself,
Ive been asked before and each time I turned
down the group. My husband Frank and I are
big San Francisco Giants fans and we usually
attend spring training camp that week in
In 2013, however, the Mecchis werent
planning on doing so. Her participation in
Bouquets to Art almost seemed like fate.
On Selection Day in January, when the
orists visit the museum to view the art and
put in their requests for which art they would
like to interpret, Val knew she wanted William
Joseph McCloskeys Oranges in Tissue
Paper. Florists arent always assigned their
rst choice and Val waited anxiously for the
letter from Lisa Harris, the exhibitor chairper-
son who pairs the orists with the art. In
February, the letter came and Mecchi was
thrilled to learn that her rst choice had been
Using orange pincushion protea and white
anthuriums, tea roses, ranunculus and freesia,
her interpretation of McCloskeys 1890 still
life was both simple and elegant. It was a
crowning achievement to her more than 30-
year oral career, the Friend of Filolis 30
year participation in Bouquets to Art and a
perfect choice for Bouquets to Arts 30th sig-
nature image.
Bouquets to Art will take place Tuesday,
March 18 to Sunday, March 23, 2014. The
fundraiser features a glittering gala preview
night, a rafe, oral demonstrations and spe-
cial luncheons with all proceeds beneting
the de Young and Legion of Honor Museums.

found Hot Jesus, Oprah Winfrey told him in
a TV interview, referring to a Twitter hashtag
about the actor.
A hunkier Jesus than necessary, Variety
noted in its review of the movie. The
Hollywood Reporter called it Jesus as pretty
boy, and noted a resemblance between
Morgado and the young Marlon Brando.
But box ofce is booming. Son of God
came in a close second last weekend to Liam
Neesons Non-Stop, beating out the block-
buster Lego movie.
To Morgado, its all good. Long after Im
gone, this is going to be my legacy, he said
in a telephone interview. So why should I
worry about people calling me Hot Jesus?
Im really proud of this movie.
His key acting challenge, Morgado notes,
was getting that balance between divine and
human: Its a really tricky thing.
Thats always been a problem, says Jeffrey
Mahan, professor at the Iliff school of theol-
ogy in Denver. Jesus lms go back to the
very beginning of cinema, and theres always
that tension between human and divine.
Mahan notes that this isnt the rst sexy
Jesus on lm. When Jeffrey Hunter played
the role in the 1961 King of Kings, he
says, people dismissively dubbed it I Was a
Teenage Jesus, a reference to Hunters youth-
ful good looks (though he was in his 30s).
Some lms, like the 1959 Ben-Hur,
avoided problems by not showing Jesusface.
Others, says Adele Reinhartz, author of Jesus
in Hollywood and professor at the
University of Ottawa, show a sanitized gure
that could have walked right out of a
Renaissance painting. But they were always
fairly good-looking: These are marketing
The deeper problem with portraying Jesus,
Reinhartz says, is that to make a compelling
movie character, you need aws. And that
doesnt t into most conceptions of Jesus.
One exception was Martin Scorseses 1988
The Last Temptation of Christ, starring
Willem Dafoe as a Jesus conicted about his
identity and experiencing earthly tempta-
tions, like lust. That didnt please everyone
a Christian fundamentalist group hurled
Molotov cocktails at a Paris theater where it
Then there was Mel Gibsons 2004 The
Passion of the Christ, starring Jim Caviezel,
an enormous hit which is deemed one of the
most controversial lms of all time, both
because of its bloody depiction of the
Crucixion Roger Ebert called it the most
violent lm hed ever seen and allegations
of anti-Semitism.

pledged to game projects than any other cat-
egory since the site launched in 2009.
However, thats typically for small indie
or niche gamemakers. Why is a multimil-
lionaire like ONeal asking fans to open
their wallets to resurrect Shaq Fu instead
of simply coming up with the cash himself?
Thats just the new way of doing busi-
ness, said ONeal, who retired from the
NBA in 2011. I have a big social follow-
ing, so everyone will have their hand in it.
As a businessman, you have to take advan-
tage of all available options.
Shaq Fu funders who donate $15 on the
games Indiegogo site will receive a copy of
the game, while those who donate big bucks
will be granted various prizes and opportu-
nities, such as $400 for admission to a
Shaq-Fu launch party; $600 for ONeal to
record an outgoing voicemail message;
$3,000 for a size 22 sneaker signed by
ONeal; and $15,000 for lunch and a pick-up
basketball game at one of ONeals houses.
The planned return of Shaq-Fu doesnt
mean the 41-year-old basketball champ
wants to similarly revive other past side
projects, such as his big-screen alter-egos
Steel and Kazaam, or his rapping career.

young hunter who goes on a journey to
better himself and lands in a foreign
part of the islands in the midst of two
feuding villages.
While confronted with cultural dif-
ferences, Flying Fox realizes neither
tribe remembers why theyre at war and
he ends up becoming a mediator,
Bernstein said.
Flying Fox eventually returns home
and nds trouble afoot, but Bernstein
said he didnt want to spoil the rest.
Although clearly a period-based
lm, the theme has parallels to modern
society and politics, Bernstein said.
Im really trying to say some
things about human nature and the
issues that the protagonist is present-
ed with I think are topical. Because it
goes on, for instance, in Washington
today, because you have one side dug
in and trenched against the other and
often it seems one side is more inter-
ested in defeating the other side then in
achieving whatever their alleged goal
is, Bernstein said. Its philosophi-
cal those are things that manifest in
politics. But its also a comedy, so
lets not forget that, its a dry comedy
that people have really been enjoy-
Bernstein grew up in San Mateo with
Tongan friends, went on to work in
Hollywood for a short period and end-
ing up working as an attorney in
Redwood City. But he became extreme-
ly curious about Tonga as an adult and
he started to read everything he could
nd about its history, culture and lan-
guage, Bernstein said.
He spent several months writing the
script and, after gathering funds, most
of which he contributed himself, set
out with his ve-man crew and limited
equipment to the remote island Eua.
The real catch, they had 30 days to
make a movie and no actors.
It was denitely a unique experi-
ence, Bernstein said. None of us had
been there and we didnt know what to
expect. It [was] a very foreign place to
us and we were just dropping in there
trying to accomplish a huge task on a
They arrived determined. They set
aside one week to get their bearings,
hire a cast, gather props and set loca-
tion and three weeks to lm, Bernstein
The rst few days were chaotic, espe-
cially after they made an announce-
ment on the radio that they were cast-
ing and no one showed. But in true
island style, people began to trickle
by their bungalow and eventually a
cast was formed. None had any acting
experience, Bernstein said.
There was no other way to do it, you
had to actually be there, Bernstein
said. I wanted it to be as authentic as
possible and we had [producer]
Villiami [Halapua] there keeping an
eye out to make sure everything stayed
as authentic as possible. He was
Born in Tonga, Halapua came to the
mainland in 2003 and works as a court
translator. With close ties to the exot-
ic island, Halapua said was thrilled
when Bernstein asked him to be part of
the lm.
It was an amazing project to be a
part of and Im so happy that Alex and
the crew chose Tonga. And Im very
happy with the outcome and I hope
itll put Tonga on the map for the rest
of the world to see; that theres an
island Tonga and its a beautiful one,
Halapua said.
Both Halapua and Bernstein are
extremely gratified their film was
accepted into Cinequest, but said they
feel pressure to not let anyone from
their cast down.
Its still very rural, most of those in
Eua who were in the lm are lucky to
be anywhere near an Internet source
and have been thrilled to watch even
clips of the trailer, Halapua said.
As the rst movie of its kind, both
Bernstein and Halapua are proud to
showcase the lesser-known island in
the Pacic.
Its something that was occurring
to us while we were shooting the
movie, Bernstein said. Obviously
we are trying to tell a story but, at the
same time, anything we can do to show
people how beautiful and unique Tonga
is, all the better.
When the Man Went South will be
premiering at the Cinequest Film
Festival in San Jose 7 p.m. March 7

1976, walking from her home to a
bus stop at Bradford Way and Fairway
Drive in Pacifica.
Her body was found the next day at
the Sharp Park Golf Course.
Fourteen-year-old Tanya Blackwell
disappeared next, on Jan. 24. She had
left her home on Heathcliff Drive in
Pacifica, reportedly to walk to a 7-
Eleven store at King Drive in South
San Francisco.
Her body was located months later,
on June 6, off Gypsy Hill Road in
Next to disappear was 17-year-old
Paula Baxter, who was last seen leav-
ing the parking lot of Capuchino
High School in San Bruno on Feb. 4.
Early the next morning, her car, a
bronze 1972 Chevy Vega station
wagon, was found parked on a nearby
residential street, and the day after
that Baxters body was discovered
hidden in brush behind the Latter Day
Saints Church on Ludeman Lane.
The next Peninsula victim was
Carol Lee Booth, also known as
Beedy, a 26-year-old who was last
seen walking from the bus stop on El
Camino Real at Arroyo Street in South
San Francisco toward her home.
Booth disappeared on March 15,
but her body wasnt recovered until
May 4.
She was known to use a common
shortcut across an open area between
Kaiser Hospital and Mission Road near
the former El Camino Real Driving
Range, and her body was found hidden
in some vegetation in that area.
The fifth Peninsula victim was 19-
year-old Denise Lampe, who left
Serramonte Mall in Daly City on
April 1 and returned to her vehicle,
never to be seen alive again.
Her body was found that evening
inside her vehicle, a 1964-1/2
Mustang, which was parked in the
same location at the mall, between
Macys and the Dennys restaurant.
Sandwiched between two of the San
Mateo County murders was the
killing of 19-year-old University of
Nevada-Reno student Michelle
At about 8:10 p.m. on Feb. 24,
1976, Mitchells vehicle broke down
at the intersection of Ninth Street and
Evans Avenue in Reno.
Someone assisted her in pushing
the vehicle, a yellow early 1970s
Volkswagen Bug, into a parking lot
across from the universitys agricul-
tural building on Evans Street.
Her body was found later that night
in the garage of a nearby home.
Based on forensic evidence in a
number of the cases, the time frame of
the murders and the methods used by
the killer, investigators are confi-
dent that all six murders were com-
mitted by the same person.
In addition to the FBI, agencies
involved in the task force include the
San Mateo County Sheriffs Office,
the Daly City Police Department, the
Pacifica Police Department, the
South San Francisco Police
Department, the Reno Police
Department and the Washoe County
Sheriffs Office.
Anyone with information about the
case is urged to call the FBIs tip line
at (415) 553-7400, then press zero
and advise that the call is in regards
to the Gypsy Hill cases. All calls are

filed by David M. Cicero, Jr. in the Supe-

Mateo. The Petition for Probate requests
that David M. Cicero, Jr. be appointed
as personal representative to administer
the estate of the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the

this court as follows: March 28, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code

Barry Davis
Case Number: 124233
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Barry Davis. A Petition
for Probate has been filed by Kimberly
Brown in the Superior Court of Califor-
nia, County of San Mateo. The Petition
for Probate requests that Kimberly Brown
be appointed as personal representative
to administer the estate of the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: April 7, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-

itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

Angela Merkel said. We cannot go back to
business as usual with Russia, she added.
However, the EUs latest sanctions
appeared weak compared to the U.S. ones
and to what some more hawkish EU coun-
tries wanted, particularly those bordering
Russia. Polands leader noted the resistance
to penalizing Moscow remains fairly high
among some members of the 28-nation bloc
because of Europes close proximity, energy
dependence and trade ties to Russia.
As the EU leaders met, the U.S. also sent
six F-15 ghter jets to Lithuania to bolster
air patrols over the Baltics, and a U.S. war-
ship is now in the Black Sea to participate in
long-planned exercises.
The sanctions on both sides of the Atlantic
aimed to rein in Europes gravest geopoliti-
cal crisis in a generation, which developed
swiftly again Thursday with Crimean law-
makers declaring their intention to split
from Ukraine and join Russia instead and
scheduling a referendum in 10 days for voters
to decide the fate of the disputed peninsula.
Visiting the summit, Ukraines Prime
Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk branded the ref-
erendum illegitimate. Crimea was, is, and
will be an integral part of Ukraine, he told
In Washington, President Barack Obama
said the referendum would violate interna-
tional law.
The EU put on ice talks on a wide-ranging
economic agreement and on granting
Russian citizens visa-free travel within the
28-nation bloc, a goal that Moscow has
been pursuing for years.
The decision followed tough negotiations
among member states divided over how to
react to the Russian aggression.
Not everyone will be satised with the
decision, but I should say that we did much
more together than one could have expected
several hours ago, said Polish Prime
Minister Donald Tusk.
Tusk said there was no enthusiasm in
Europe for sanctioning Russia, but he called
the moves inevitable, given the countrys
blatant violation of international rights by
its actions in Crimea.
British Prime Minister David Cameron
agreed, while acknowledging that stiffer
sanctions would not only hurt Russia.
Of course there are consequences for
Britain if you look at nancial services. Of
course there are consequences for France if
you look at defense. Of course there are con-
sequences for some European countries if you
look at energy, he said.
But he said the EU had to take tough action
to counter what he called the most serious
crisis in Europe this century.
If you are going to stand for something, if
youre going to stand up to aggression, you
have to look at, you have to consider, all and
every one of those areas.
