239 ON LOST MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT

City officials and landscape pro-
fessionals seeking new ways to
keep thirsty parks green while
also conserving water in a drought
learned that new technology is
available to help them meet both
their goals.
More than 150 people gathered
for a seminar hosted by the San
Mateo Parks and Recreation
Department Thursday to learn
more about new ways to conserve
in light of the state’s current
drought and the San Francisco
Utility Commission’s request of a
10 percent voluntary reduction.
Personal water conservation
strategies like shortening show-
ers, only running washers when
full and turning off the sink while
brushing may not be sufficient for
those who are charged with keep-
ing acres of public parks and green
spaces enjoyable for the public.
Jim Borneman, an educational
representative from the landscape
and irrigation supply company
Ewing, led the conservation semi-
nar. The technology behind irriga-
tion systems has come a long way
in the last 10 years and gathering
the public and those who use water
most to discuss new conservation
techniques is critical to persever-
ing through the drought,
Borneman said.

because we have a water privilege,

With big curriculum changes and
new tests officially being imple-
mented next year, every school dis-
trict in the state is running field
tests of the exams in upcoming
weeks.
The fresh Common Core
Standards shift to more team collab-
orative learning and technology in
the classroom. There is also the new
computer-based Smarter Balanced
Assessments, which aligns with
these new standards, that will go
into effect during the 2014-15
school year. Since 1998, California
school districts had spent a signifi-
cant amount of time preparing for
Standardized Testing and
Reporting, or STAR, tests. Field
testing can run between March 18
and June 6. By the end, more than
three million students in school
districts, county offices of educa-
tion and charter schools will have
had a chance to try the new system.

Serial entrepreneur and school
trustee Dave Mandelkern’s next
move is to expand his latest ven-
ture this year.
Mandelkern, a trustee for the San
Mateo County Community
College District since 2003, has
been an entrepreneur for more than
30 years. His newest biotech start-
up, Maverix Biomics, provides a
platform and analytics tools for
researchers to easily access, share
and analyze their research.
Customers can log on to the web-
site, upload their DNA sequencing
data, access public databases to
add context, analyze the data with
algorithms and visualize the data
automatically.
This year, he’s moving his office
to a bigger location in San Mateo
and approximately doubling the
staff by the end of the year.
“It’s called Maverix because it’s
like surfing big waves of data,”
said Mandelkern, who is president
and CEO of the startup. “We were
watching the Super Bowl at the
time [we came up with the name].”
He altered the spelling of the
surf competition Mavericks for
his company name since it’s
already copyrighted. The other
surfing connection has to do with

Wake up and smell the
bacon ... with a bacon app
MADISON, Wis. — Want to wake
up to the sound of bacon sizzling on
the stove with its aroma drawing you
out of bed? There’s an app for that.
Oscar Mayer says it has created a
bacon-scented app for the iPhone,
developed by the Madison-based
company’s Institute for the
Advancement of Bacon.
The company says that to emit a
small puff reminiscent of bacon, the
user needs an external device that
plugs into the headphone jack. The
app itself produces the sound of
bacon sizzling in a pan.
Oscar Mayer says the aroma-pro-
ducing device won’t be sold in stores
and that quantities are limited. The
company is giving away 4,700
devices beginning Thursday.
Oscar Mayer is part of Kraft Foods
Group Inc., based in Glenview, Ill.
Fortune cookie turns Bronx
woman into millionaire
NEW YORK — A 75-year-old New
York woman found her fortune in a
cookie.
Emma Duvoll won $2 million in a
recent Powerball drawing after playing
the numbers found in her fortune cookie.
The retired Bronx resident bought
the lottery ticket after dining at a
Chinese restaurant in Greenwich
Village.
The Daily News reports that the
owner of Sammy’s Noodle Shop &
Grill joked that maybe the waiters
should get 20 percent of her win-
ni ngs.
Duvoll, a retired deli owner, picked
up her prize on Thursday. She pur-
chased the ticket for the Feb. 1 draw-
ing at the Hannaford Pharmacy in
upstate Pine Bush.
She plans to invest her winnings
and may splurge on a trip to
Switzerland to see relatives.
Cookbook returned to
library after 21-plus years
LAWRENCE, Kan. — More than
two decades after a cookbook was
checked out of a Kansas library, it’s
just now been returned.
6NewsLawrence reports a copy of
“The Versatile Grain and the Elegant
Bean: A Celebration of the World’s
Most Healthful Foods” was placed in
a Lawrence Public Library return box
one night this week. The book had
been checked out on Sept. 24, 1992.
Library official Kristin Soper
speculates the borrower misplaced
the volume and came across it just
recently. The maximum late fee in
1992 was $3; it’s now $4.50.
“The Versatile Grain and the
Elegant Bean” contains more than
300 recipes from around the world.
Reviewers noted in 1992 that its
publication coincided with growing
U.S. interest in healthy cooking.
Gettysburg wax museum
selling historical figures
GETTYSBURG, Pa. — A life-sized
animatronic Abe Lincoln is among
the historical figures and tableau
scenes from a Gettysburg wax muse-
um set to hit the auction block just
months after the town celebrated the
150th anniversary of his
“Gettysburg Address.”
The American Civil War Wax
Museum has occupied a prime spot
near the center of the battlefield for
more than half a century. But it
recently underwent an extensive ren-
ovation and wants to take a new
approach to history. As part of those
changes, it is preparing to unload
dozens of its historical figures - most
made of vinyl, not wax - in what the
auctioneer calls a once-in-a-lifetime
sale.
The March 15 auction will also fea-
ture diorama contents, tapestries,
furniture and books. The items
include soldiers, a Southern planta-
tion scene and the Lincoln-Douglas
debates’ stop in 1858 at Knox
College. Also for sale is an enormous
reproduction of Gilbert Stuart’s 1796
portrait of George Washi ngt on,
which hangs in the National Portrait
Gallery.

E
lizabeth Mills Reid was the daughter
of Darius Ogden Mills, 49er pioneer
that became the millionaire banker
that started the Bank of California. Elizabeth
developed a sense of public duty that was to
revolutionize the health care system of San
Mateo County.
She married Whitlaw Reid, newspaper man
and ambassador to Paris. While living in New
York, she became interested in the Red Cross’
work. Her interest resulted in establishing
many nurse training facilities and hospitals,
including the Mills Memorial Hospital in San
Mateo.
The area around San Mateo Creek attracted a
community that was to establish the city of
San Mateo. It had fertile soil and a supply of
fresh water so they developed the land for
crops for Mission Dolores and, in the in the
1790s, the church built a hospice to the north
of the San Mateo Creek. After the granary was
abandoned in the mid-1800s, Nicholas De
Peyster squatted on the property until he was
kicked off by owner Mr. Howard. DePeyster
moved across El Camino Real, purchased land
south of the creek and built the road- house,
the San Mateo House, at the corner of Second
Avenue and El Camino Real. Later, the son-in-
law of Ansel Easton, Edward Taylor, purchased
the land and lived there. North of Taylor’s
home, in 1864, the George Howard family
donated land (two acres) north of the creek for

Helping support those in crisis or transi-
tion because of divorce or broken relation-
ships is the goal of a new weekly, free infor-
mation and support group in Burlingame.
The Divorce and Relationship Recovery
Network is a nonprofit run by Davis Fields
— who used to work in high-tech marketing
— and has programs in Menlo Park, Los
Gatos and Fremont. The inspiration for the
nonprofit came out of a support group he
attended at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
after going through a divorce in 2008.
Fields wants to highlight that, although the
group meets at a church, it’s welcoming of
people of any faith.
“I wished there was one little corner of my
life not affected [by divorce],” he said.
“This is a great safe place to go.”
The Menlo Park group was so helpful that
he decided to start his own company and
expand the service to more people.
In September 2013, he began the
Burlingame group that meets Wednesday
nights at First Presbyterian Church. About
20 to 30 people attend per week for two-
hour sessions — during the first hour,
there’s a speaker or video and, during the
second, participants break into small
groups for discussions. Linda Galligan,
pastor of the church, herself divorced 20
years ago and was very much in support of
such a group being at the church.
“We’re providing support and encourage-
ment,” said Galligan, who helps run the
meetings.
Fields said some people in the group are
way past the pain and anguish of divorce
and in the process of reinvention. Attendees
do have to follow certain rules for maintain-
ing a safe and supportive environment,
including not dating one another, not giv-
ing advice, allowing equal time for each per-
son who speaks in the small groups, no
interrupting one another, being on time and
respecting privacy and confidentiality.
Fields also asks participants to spread the
word about the group and show one another
support and encouragement.
A participant named Kathy from
Burlingame, who chose to withhold her last
name, is separated and said it’s nice to see
other people going through the same thing.
Another named Jenny from Belmont, who
also chose to withhold her last name, is in
mediation said the topics discussed are very
useful. Each meeting has its own theme.
One was called “How to Fight” and she said
she realized she’d seen her parents fight and
hadn’t wanted to fight with her husband.
“I thought, ‘wow, there were a lot of
things I should have fought about with my
husband that I didn’t,’” she said. “If I want
to have a healthy relationship, I need to be
with someone as emotionally intelligent as
I’ve learned to be from this program.”
She recounts how most of the parents in
her son’s school are married.
“It’s very isolating to me when I go to
school events and everyone is married,” she
said. “I finally get to be with my people. It’s
a safe place with people who are also split
up and there’s rules that you have to keep
things confidential.”
The fact that the group is free is also of
help, she said, noting the group is really
helpful because she can’t afford counseling.
The statistics on divorce are horrific,
Fields said. Jenny added that it’s crazy to
hear that some people do not survive the
process.
While some other groups are focused on
the relationships themselves, this one is
much more focused on divorce or relation-
ship endings, Jenny said.
“It’s (divorce) the hardest thing to go
through and most transformable,” she said.
“I don’t think about it as a failed marriage.
You wouldn’t say you had a failed career if it
ended. Otherwise you feel like is everything
I did for 11 years a failure? I produced beau-
tiful children.”
Another participant named Charles
attends the Burlingame and Menlo Park
groups. He began attending about a year and
a half ago after his divorce finalized in
2012. He does see the program as a way of
talking about how to create healthy rela-
tionships.
“It’s pertinent, it’s a place to work
through the issues of divorce in a safe
place,” he said. “The small groups are real-
ly integral to that healing process. It’s a
postmortem; you’re trying to figure out
what happened and what went wrong. It’s a
misnomer that it’s called divorce recovery
because it’s really relationship 101.
You’re working on yourself, boundaries
and understanding the elements of a
healthy relationship.”
Planned or proposed new meeting places
for the group include San Francisco and
Marin County; Pacifica and the Half Moon
Bay corridor; and the East Bay.
The group meets 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays at
1500 Easton Drive. For more information
on the Burlingame group, go to
meetup.com/DRR-Burlingame. If you would

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES — Americans are boarding
public buses, trains and subways in greater
numbers than any time since the suburbs
began booming.
Nearly 10.7 billion trips in 2013, to be
precise — the highest total since 1956,
according to ridership data reported by tran-
sit systems nationally and released Monday
by the American Public Transportation
Association.
Transit ridership has now fully recovered
from a dip caused by the Great Recession.
With services restored following economy-
driven cutbacks, ridership numbers appear
set to continue what had been a steady
increase.
“People are making a fundamental shift to
having options” aside from a car in how
they get around, said Michael Melaniphy,
president and CEO of the public transporta-
tion association. “This is a long-term
trend. This isn’t just a blip.”
Expanding bus and train networks help
spur the growth.
Ridership on Los Angeles County
Metropolitan Transportation Authority
light-rail trains increased six percent over
2012, as the public took advantage of an
expanded network of lines. Overall, LA
Metro gained nine million trips to reach
478 million in 2013, the transportation
association said. Among the other transit
systems in California with record ridership
was the Caltrain commuter rail service that
connects San Francisco with Silicon
Valley.
Houston and Phoenix, two cities which
have been more notable for their sprawl
than public transportation offerings, had
large ridership gains. So did Seattle,
Miami, Denver and San Diego. The New
York area’s behemoth transit network saw
the greatest gain, accounting for one in
three trips nationally.
Transit advocates argue that the public
increasingly values the ability to get
around without a car. They offer as evi-
dence the nation’s urban shift and the
movement to concentrate new develop-
ment around transit hubs.
“People want to work and live along
transit lines,” Melaniphy said.
“Businesses, universities and housing are
all moving along those corridors.”

not a right; we have to show we’re good
stewards of it,” Borneman said. “Landscape

ronments and we have to control it if possi-
ble.”
The city’s landscape in its parks and green
spaces is one of the largest water consumers
with miles of irrigation pipe that distributes
about $471,000 worth of water each year,
according to a city staff report.
“We’re constantly affected by the cost of
water and it’s only going to go higher and
more costly because it’s a limited source,”
said Mark Soulard, irrigation specialist for
the Parks and Recreation Department.
“Managing water [at] a city level … it’s
very important to not only be able to man-
age the resource but manage money [too.]”
City officials said San Mateo is conserva-
tion savvy and tries to remain up to date
with new irrigation devices. Some new tech-
nologies people can take advantage of
include subsurface drip irrigation systems
to prevent runoff; advanced weather sensors
that turn off irrigation systems when it
rains, or freezes; monitoring systems that
adjust based on the soil, plant type and
slope, Soulard said.
Although the devices are an upfront
expense, the costs can be offset with rebate
programs and long-term savings from water
reduction, Soulard said.
Some of the newer systems the city has
installed have negligible runoff and using
water smarter allows it to continue to pro-
vide quality service to residents, Soulard
said.
Residents love San Mateo’s parks and the
city has to work hard to keep them pristine
while balancing its budget, said Mike
Blondino, parks and landscape manager for
the Parks and Recreation Department.
“People love the parks in San Mateo.
They want to use our parks and part of it is
keeping it aesthetically pleasing … and
being able to manage our costs,” Blondino
said.
The Parks and Recreation Department is
continuing to look at conservation strate-
gies that will keep the city serving the pub-
lic where it needs it most. The city will be
identifying priority landscape areas, such
as athletic fields and picnic areas, which
will receive the most water; while less sig-
nificant areas like passive or ornamental
turf will only be watered enough to keep it
alive, according to the report.
Many seminar attendees were city staff
from Redwood City, Millbrae, San Bruno,
Belmont and San Carlos as well as represen-
tatives from landscape companies,
Blondino said.
Lori Piper works for a California based
landscape company and attended Thursday’s
seminar. Even though the recent rainfall has
been somewhat encouraging, “it’ll hit hard
and it’s better to be on top of it before
then,” Piper said.
She attended several seminars recently
and, although she was familiar with some of
the conservation techniques, she was
exposed to a larger variety of rebate offers
and how to educate and pass savings on to
customers, Piper said.
“It’s educating the public as to our limited
resources and how we need to use them dur-
ing these tough times,” Soulard said.
“Knowledge is power and the more knowl-
edge we have about how water is being used
or how it can be used, the more efficient we
can be at managing it.”

MILLBRAE –
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 who’ve 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 “You’re welcome” is
the correct response. You’re 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 “You’re welcome”
being substituted with “Thank you” back at
the person who is doing the thanking. This
is “OK”, but saying “You’re welcome” first
is taken as a hospitable and warm gesture.
Now that “Thank you” and “You’re
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 we’ve helped so many times in
the past. Thank you to the new families
who’ve 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

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
FORTBRAGG, N.C. — The Army captain
who has accused Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A.
Sinclair of sexually assaulting her during
their three-year relationship was an ambi-
tious soldier with plans to make the mili-
tary her career, much like the boss she loved
and admired.
Stirred by the 9/11 attacks to leave col-
lege and join the military, she signed up
with the Army, learned the in-demand lan-
guage of Arabic and showed a laser focus in
trying to carve out a reputation as a soldier
who could be counted on in the toughest of
situations.
Her stunning allegations that Sinclair, a
rising star revered by both his superiors as
well as those he commanded on the battle-
field, has put both of them — and the three-
year affair they both admit to — under the
microscope at a time when Congress and the
Pentagon grapple with how to best deal
with cases of sexual impropriety within the
military ranks.
Her credibility is central to the case. Is
she a woman whose affair with a charismat-
ic and approachable superior ended with
him forcing her to perform oral sex and
threatening to kill her and her family? Or is
she, as Sinclair’s lawyers have portrayed, a
jilted lover who fabricated allegations of
sexual assault when Sinclair refused t o
leave his wife?
She testified Friday as Sinclair’s court-
martial began. She is expected to return to
the stand Monday, where Sinclair’s attor-
neys will likely ask tough, pointed ques-
tions and dissect the relationship in
extremely graphic detail.
The Associated Press does not generally
identify alleged victims of sexual assault.
Much of what is known about the 34-year-
old captain comes from her own testimony
during the various military proceedings.
Her allegations set in motion a rare court-
martial against a brigadier general. He is
believed to be only the third high-ranking
military officer to face court-martial in the
past half century — and the highest ranking
officer to be accused of sexual assault.
The charges against Sinclair and his hear-
ing come at a time the Army is under
increasing pressure to confront what it has
called an epidemic of sexual misconduct. On
Thursday, the U.S. Senate rejected a propos-
al that would end the practice of allowing
commanders to decide if serious crimes
move forward through military courts.
Sinclair, 51, this past week pleaded guilty
to charges he had improper relationships
with two other female Army officers and to
committing adultery with the captain, a
crime in the military.

Can GOP neutralize
immigration as election issue?
AURORA — Will the apparent slow death
of immigration legislation have any politi-
cal repercussions this year?
If so, they probably will be felt in the sub-
divisions, shopping centers and ethnic eater-
ies wrapped around Denver’s southern end.
Republican Mike Coffman represents the
fast-changing congressional district.
He’s among a few vulnerable Republican
members in line to be targeted by immigrant
rights advocates.
They’re targets if the House doesn’t pass
an immigration bill before the November
election that would offer legal status to mil-
lions of people who entered the U.S. ille-
gally or overstayed their visas.
Democrats are focused on about two dozen
GOP-held seats where immigration could be
a factor.
Suspected drunken
driver hits ‘We Be Sober’ taxi
FRESNO — A suspected drunken driver
was arrested after colliding with a taxi with
a mission to drive home people who have
been drinking in the Fresno, Calif. region.
The Fresno Bee reported Sunday that
police arrested 38-year-old Jorge Rosales
on suspicion of drunken driving. Rosales is
accused of colliding with a “We Be Sober”
taxi on the way to pick up a fare in the early
hours of Saturday morning. Two men in the
taxi were injured and taken to the hospital.
One was treated and released. The other sus-
tained moderate injuries to his wrist and
knee. The men in the taxi weren’t identified.
Man dies in crash

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia —
Vietnamese aircraft spotted what they sus-
pected was one of the doors of a missing
Boeing 777 on Sunday, while questions
emerged about how two passengers man-
aged to board the ill-fated aircraft using
stolen passports.
Interpol confirmed it knew about the
stolen passports but said no authorities
checked its vast databases on stolen docu-
ments before the Boeing jetliner departed
Saturday from Kuala Lumpur en route to
Beijing with 239 people on board.
Warning “only a handful of countries”
routinely make such checks, Interpol secre-
tary general Ronald Noble chided authori-
ties for “waiting for a tragedy to put prudent
security measures in place at borders and
boarding gates.”
More than two days after Malaysia
Airlines Flight MH370 went missing, the
final minutes before its disappearance
remained a mystery. The plane lost contact
with ground controllers somewhere between
Malaysia and Vietnam.
However, searchers in a low-flying plane
spotted an object that appeared to be one of
the plane’s doors, the state-run Thanh Nien
newspaper said, citing the deputy chief of
staff of Vietnam’s army, Lt. Gen. Vo Van Tuan.
Two ships from the maritime police were
headed to the site about 60 miles (90 kilo-
meters) south of Tho Chu island in the Gulf
of Thailand, the same area where oil slicks
were spotted Saturday.
“From this object, hopefully (we) will
find the missing plane,” Tuan said.
The jetliner apparently fell from the sky
at cruising altitude in fine weather, and the
pilots were either unable or had no time to
send a distress signal — unusual circum-
stances under which a modern jetliner oper-
ated by a professional airline would crash.
Authorities were checking on the identi-
ties of the two passengers who boarded the
plane with stolen passports. On Saturday,
the foreign ministries in Italy and Austria
said the names of two citizens listed on the
flight’s manifest matched the names on two
passports reported stolen in Thailand.
“I can confirm that we have the visuals of
these two people on CCTV,” Malaysian
Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein
said at a news conference late Sunday,
adding that the footage was being exam-
ined. “We have intelligence agencies, both
local and international, on board.”

KIEV, Ukraine — Russian President
Vladimir Putin on Sunday defended the sep-
aratist drive in the disputed Crimean
Peninsula as in keeping with international
law, but Ukraine’s prime minister vowed
not to relinquish “a single centimeter” of
his country’s territory.
Over the weekend, the Kremlin beefed up
its military presence in Crimea, a part of
Ukraine since 1954, and pro-Russia forces
keep pushing for a vote in favor of reunifi-
cation with Moscow in a referendum the
local parliament has scheduled for next
Sunday.
President Barack Obama has warned that
the March 16 vote would violate interna-
tional law. But in Moscow, Putin made it
clear that he supports the referendum in
phone calls with German Chancellor
Angela Merkel and British Minister David
Cameron.
“The steps taken by the legitimate leader-
ship of Crimea are based on the norms of
international law and aim to ensure the
legal interests of the population of the
peninsula,” said Putin, according to the
Kremlin.
Following an extraordinary Sunday meet-
ing of the Ukrainian government, Prime
Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced that
he will meet with Obama in Washington on
Wednesday on a “resolution of the situation
in Ukraine,” the Interfax news agency
reported. The White House confirmed the
meeting.
“Our country and our people are facing
the biggest challenges in the history of
modern independent Ukraine,” the prime
minister said earlier in the day. “Will we be
able to deal with these challenges? There
should only be one answer to this question
and that is: yes.”
In an emotional climate of crisis,
Ukraine on Sunday solemnly commemorat-
ed the 200th anniversary of the birth of its
greatest poet, Taras Shevchenko, a son of
peasant serfs who is a national hero and is
considered the father of modern Ukrainian
literature.
“This is our land,” Yatsenyuk told a crowd
gathered at the Kiev statue to Shevchenko.
“Our fathers and grandfathers have spilled
their blood for this land. And we won’t
budge a single centimeter from Ukrainian
land. Let Russia and its president know
this.”
“We’re one country, one family and we’re
here together with our kobzar (bard) Taras,”
said acting President Oleksandr Turchynov.
Later, Ukrainians in the tens of thou-
sands massed in the Kiev’s center for a
multi-faith prayer meeting to display unity
and honor Shevchenko. One of the speak-
ers, former imprisoned Russian tycoon
Mikhail Khodorkovsky, almost burst into
tears as he implored the crowd to believe
not all Russians support their country’s
recent actions in Ukraine.
“I want you to know there is a complete-
ly different Russia,” Khodorkovsky said.
In the eastern city of Luhansk, however,
people who gathered in a square to celebrate
Shevchenko’s birthday were attacked by
pro-Russia protesters, and some were beat-
en up, local media reports said.
Chanting “Russia! Russia!” the demon-
strators then broke through a police barri-
cade and took over the local government
building, where they raised the Russian flag
and demanded a citywide referendum on
joining Russia, Channel 5 and other local
media reported.
But it’s Crimea, a strategic peninsula in
the Black Sea, that has become the chief
flashpoint in the battle for Ukraine, where
three months of protests sparked by
President Victor Yanukovych’s decision to
ditch a significant treaty with the 28-
nation European Union after strong pres-
sure from Russia led to his downfall.
A majority of people in Crimea identify
with Russia, and Moscow’s Black Sea Fleet
is based in Sevastopol, as is Ukraine’s .

Stunning success
of early learning
Editor,
I admire Michael Oberg’s interest in
education (Letter: “Lempert misses the
point” in the Feb. 10 edition of the
Daily Journal). He is obviously a car-
ing, dedicated parent.
As a retired San Mateo teacher who
taught at North Shoreview School, I
received the first class of children
trained by Freddie Blanc in the “new”
Early Childhood Education methods.
Parent participation in the classroom
was mandatory. My first grade test
scores soared 50 percent and I had more
parental help than in living memory. A
major plus of ELC is that parents as
well as children are educated — more
bang for the buck one might say. The
community as whole benefits enor-
mously.
As a result of the stunning success of
the ELC, those of us involved started
meeting around Sue Lempert’s dining
room table. What now exists decades
later is a highly acclaimed multi-
school Parent Involvement Project
(PIP) involving teachers, entire fami-
lies and many committed community
members. Early on Sue’s son, Ted
Lempert, participated in the develop-
ment of our program and Jerry Hill also
lent a hand. Sue sits on the board of
Friends of the Parent Involvement
Project (FPIP) and helps develop fur-
ther improvement of the existing pro-
gram. Sue Lempert has developed a
highly successful program of volun-
teers who do one-on-one tutorial read-
ings at the PIP schools. Mr. Oberg’s
concerns about Sue Lempert show our
need to better educate our community
about our splendid, highly effective
PIP program.
Come see the proud mothers and
fathers who actively participate in the
mandatory parental skills training pro-
gram. Don’t despair Mr. Oberg — edu-
cation of the tender young and their
parents is on the upswing, stabilizing
and enriching our community.

Pedestrian sting
Editor,
On two separate days in January, I
witnessed Millbrae police and sheriff’s
deputies run a pedestrian sting opera-
tion at the intersection of Paramount
Drive at El Camino Real, and also at
the intersection of Millwood Drive at
El Camino Real. The pedestrian sting
is to cite motorists who do not yield
the right of way to pedestrians wanting
to cross the road. The purpose of this
operation is well-intended, except it
will most likely not stop the
inevitable — pedestrian injury or
death.
With due respect to the Police
Department, what the city of Millbrae
needs, is to install lights in the cross-
walk that flash when someone is cross-
ing. Burlingame has them on
California Drive. San Mateo has them
on several crosswalks downtown.
These types of crosswalk markings and
pedestrian aides do a lot more than
sting operations.
The intersection of Millwood Drive
at El Camino Real is a dark location
and it is not easy to see pedestrians at
night. The same situation is at the
intersection of Park Boulevard at El
Camino Real. Both of these intersec-
tions present blind spots for drivers
due to road conditions, businesses,
traffic and poor lighting.
Hopefully, the city of Millbrae will
take the initiative and start installing
“light-assisted crossings” at several of
these dangerous intersections.

Letters to the editor
By Jackie Speier
T
he area’s economy is booming,
and many are living the
American dream, but not every-
one’s boat is rising. Not even close.
The reality is that a subclass of workers
is emerging that are playing by the
rules, and working hard, but ending up
in shelters.
These people in
need aren’t on the
streets asking for
money, but helping
us in the businesses
at which we eat and
shop. They watch
tech buses drive by
while they wonder
from where their bus
fare will come. They
worry how they will find a home for
their families in a market where most
rentals exceed their take home pay.
They aren’t looking for handouts or
begrudging the success of others, but
this experience can’t help but engender
hopelessness and the feeling of betray-
al.
When I recently spent a night at a
homeless shelter, I was dismayed that
members of the middle class had moved
in and that earning above the minimum
wage did not protect adults from having
to share a room with dozens of others.
After a night of listening to their hard-
ships, I left the next day determined to
convince my colleagues in Congress to
spend a night at a homeless shelter in
their district.
One woman I spoke to said she and
her husband both work full time for
major retailers. Doesn’t seem right that
full-time wage earners should be forced
to live in shelters, but according to the
National Center on Family
Homelessness, 29 percent of homeless
families have jobs.
Later that night, I listened to several
veterans battling post-traumatic stress
disorder. One Iraq veteran who saw
heavy combat said he once had a six-
figure job in Silicon Valley before
falling prey to drugs and alcohol. We
talked for a long time as he slowly
unfolded a story about the worst side of
battle. Another veteran said she was
raped while serving, but eventually dis-
honorably discharged for admitting she
was gay during the “Don’t Ask, Don’t
Tell” policy days. Her life has spiraled
downward since.
One single mother with four children
at another shelter was hastily evicted
when the unit she rented was deemed
illegal by housing authorities. Her $19
an hour job put her above the threshold
for childcare assistance, forcing her
into homelessness.
Working 40 hours a week used to
mean a minimum standard of living and
a foothold on the first rung of the eco-
nomic ladder to the middle class.
Congress must raise the minimum
wage to $10.10 and extend unemploy-
ment insurance. Raising the minimum
wage will help lift 4.6 million
Americans out of poverty. But in an
area like ours, it doesn’t go far enough
to cover the day’s expenses eating
away at paychecks. We need affordable
child care, and paid sick leave so work-
ers don’t have to choose between their
health and their livelihood.
We also need to understand why 1.6
million children are homeless at least
one night in the year, according to the
National Center on Family
Homelessness.
In the Bay Area, innovators and poli-
cymakers must come together formally
in a meaningful way to explore how we
can best harness the same genius that
has created so much wealth for this
region and apply these skills to
improving the well-being of our neigh-
bors and friends.
When we foster an economy without
hope, we guarantee that a segment of
our population will be destined to
know homelessness on a permanent
basis, and not for the one night I vol-
untarily spent at a shelter.

Boom and gloom: Not everyone’s boat is rising
BART’s 10-year
anniversary bash
B
ARTdirector James Fang’s plan for a $30,000 bash
(raised from private sources) to celebrate BARTt o
SFO’s 10th anniversary was squelched. But it
brought back memories of the opening party held in 2004. I
don’t know how much that celebration cost, but it was one
of the most elaborate I have ever attended.
I was a guest, not because BARTwanted me there — I had
been a frequent critic of the project — but because I served
on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission which had
obtained the funding for BARTto SFO, its priority when the
regional agency lobbied for federal funds in Washington,
D.C. It wasn’t the idea which concerned me. It was a good
idea to connect BARTfrom the existing Colma station to
the airport. But the route it
would take was not direct
and, because it went under-
ground, it would disrupt
many of the cities in its
path. My other concern was
its impact on Caltrain, used
by most Peninsula transit
commuters to San Francisco
and San Jose.
The party which was held
at SFO was huge. The food
and drink absolutely deluxe.
I remember the layers and
layers of smoked salmon
which attendees were piling
up on their plates. Then
there were the commemora-
tive gifts — a watch, a large canvas travel bag, etc. This
event was funded by private donors, primarily the contrac-
tors whose fortunes soared. Not all elected officials were
invited. I don’t believe anyone from Millbrae was because
they were unhappy with BART’s plans for their city. And
some councilmembers from South San Francisco were left
out in the cold without a ticket. But members of the Board of
Supervisors and council members from other cities, includ-
ing San Mateo, who had enthusiastically embraced the proj-
ect, were there. They sat up front near the head table. I was
in the last set of seats closest to the door sitting with lesser
members of the BARTstaff.
BARTto SFO, which had many problems when it opened,
didn’t attract the riders it predicted, and was losing money
(SamTrans had to pick up the tab). Today, it is a success. The
$1.5 billion line from Colma to SFO with stops at South
San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae has carried more
than 30 million passengers and is operating at a profit .
BART, not SamTrans, now operates this extension and is
the beneficiary of the increased revenue. Even though BART
took a heavy toll on Caltrain funding, Caltrain reinvented
itself and is also a big success.
***
Today, I would be more than happy to celebrate BART’s
achievement. It provides a necessary service and is a boon
to Peninsula residents who want to leave their cars behind
and travel to the East Bay or to San Francisco. Often objec-
tions to a major project fade away once it is built and work-
ing. No major infrastructure project is built without vocal
critics. In the case of BARTto SFO opponents, led by sever-
al members of Burlingame’s city council, traveled to D.C. to
stop federal funding.
Today, we have another group of people fighting high-
speed rail. They bring lawsuits, write letters to the editor and
sponsor initiatives. Some suggest that state funding for
high-speed rail should be used for early childhood education.
No one, not even tea party members, are against early child-
hood education. And no one should be. It should be avail-
able to all children in the United States as part of the public
school system. It is a number one priority.
The problem with trading funds is that high-speed rail is a
capital project — one time money. Support for universal
preschool is an ongoing expense. There is no similarity
between the two. High-speed rail in California is going to
happen. Just as it has happened in most European countries,
in Japan, China, and the eastern United States. Once it is
built, people will use it, like it and wonder why there was so
much criticism in the past. Just like BARTto SFO, it might
even turn its critics into fans.

Here’s the cost per mile of building BARTto SFO and
high-speed rail. BARTto SFO from Colma to the airport
cost approximately $172 million per mile for 7.2 miles.
High-speed rail from San Francisco to Los Angeles will cost
approximately $131.5 million per mile for 520 miles.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO — California’s green-
house gas reduction law already has shaken
up the state’s industrial sector, costing it
more than $1.5 billion in pollution permit
fees.
It’s now poised to hit
the pocketbooks of
everyday Californians.
Starting next year, the
law will force fuel dis-
tributors into the same
cap-and-trade market-
place as utilities and
major manufacturers. The
oil industry says it will
lead to price increases of
at least 12 cents a gallon
immediately, while state
regulators say any price spikes could vary
widely, from barely noticeable to double-
digits.
Anticipating angst at the pump, a leading
state lawmaker is raising concerns about the
uncertainty of the law’s impact on prices for
consumer fuels, including gasoline, natural
gas, propane and heating oil. Senate
President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-
Sacramento, says the state should scrap the
plan to put fuel producers under the cap-and-
trade provision of the law and instead insti-
tute a 15 cent-per-gallon “carbon tax.”
Cap-and-trade sets a limit, or cap, on emis-
sions of heat-trapping gases and requires
companies to pay for each ton of pollution
they emit, the price of which is determined in
an allowance auction. Polluters that cut
emissions below the cap can sell their left-
over pollution permits, called allowances, to
companies that need extra.
The program is a central part of AB32, the
greenhouse gas reduction law that passed the
Legislature and was signed by former Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican, in
2006. But it is just one of several provisions
of the law — such as requiring lower-carbon
fuels — meant to prompt Californians to
change their transportation and energy con-
sumption habits as the state seeks to reduce
emissions of heat-trapping gases to 1990
levels by 2020.
The California Air Resources Board, which
designed and implemented cap-and-trade, dif-
fers with Steinberg’s assessment and proj-
ects no noticeable increase in gas costs after
Jan. 1. But the board’s own economic analy-
sis of AB32 from 2010 shows that diesel
prices could rise from 3 percent to 23 per-
cent, with gasoline prices rising 5 percent to
32 percent, depending on market factors
associated with the global warming law’s
programs.
The industry and some economic forecasts
have predicted a 10- to 12-cent increase in
the price per gallon at the pump, and
Steinberg says those prices could spike as
high as 40 cents a gallon.
Still, Mary Nichols, chairwoman of the Air
Resources Board, said oil companies have
had since 2010 to prepare and are not required
to pass on the costs to consumers.
“It would appear to be some deliberate
measure on their part if there were to be a sud-
den rise in (fuel) prices on Jan. 1,” Nichols
said. “I would expect that they would incor-
porate the cost of the allowances into their
pricing.”
Steinberg’s idea of charging a flat tax on
carbon — rather than having the price
change regularly because of cap and trade auc-
tions — does not force polluters to reduce
their emissions, Nichols said, which is key
to the state’s greenhouse gas law.
But it does allow for more stable pricing,
said Steinberg, a Democrat from Sacramento.
“Under cap-and-trade, no one can tell us
whether fuels will trade at 10 cents or 40
cents a gallon in 2015 or 2016, at any given
timing and without a warning. On the other
hand, a carbon tax is stable,” he said.
He proposed a 15 cent-a-gallon carbon tax
to offset what he said would be the indirect
tax on consumer fuels once the companies
that produce those fuels go into the cap-and-
trade program next year.
Under his proposal for a flat carbon tax,
introduced in the Legislature as SB1156, the
tax would rise to 24 cents a gallon by 2020
and more than 40 cents a gallon by 2029.
About two-thirds of the estimated $3.6 bil-
lion raised by Steinberg’s carbon tax would
go back to households earning less than
$75,000 a year in the form of a state-level
Earned Income Tax Credit. The rest would go
toward mass transit programs with the goal
of getting more Californians out of their
automobiles.
The legislative prospects for Steinberg’s
tax proposal, especially during an election
year, are uncertain. But the oil industry has
greeted his plan warmly.
Catherine Reheis-Boyd, president of the
Western States Petroleum Association, said
the cost of cap and trade allowances will add
$2 billion to the costs of gasoline and
diesel, or about 12 cents per gallon.

WASHINGTON — The data breach at Target
Corp. that exposed millions of credit card
numbers has focused attention on the patch-
work of state consumer notification laws and
renewed a push for a single national standard.
Most states have laws that require retailers
to disclose data breaches, but the laws vary
wildly. Consumers in one state might learn
immediately that their personal information
had been exposed, but that might not happen
in another state, and notification require-
ments for businesses depend on where their
customers are located. Attorney General Eric
Holder has joined the call for a nationwide
notification standard, but divisions persist,
making a consensus questionable this year.
“We’re stuck with the state-by-state
approach unless some compromise gets done
at the federal level,” said Peter Swire, a pri-
vacy expert at Georgia Tech and a former
White House privacy official.
Despite general agreement on the value of
a national standard, there are obstacles to a
straightforward compromise:
—Consumer groups don’t want to weaken
existing protections in states with the
strongest laws.
—Retailers want laws that are less burden-
some to comply with and say too much noti-
fication could cause consumers to tune out
the problem.
—Congress is looking at different propos-
als for how any federal standard should be
enforced and what the threshold should be
before notification requirements kick in.
The issue gained fresh urgency as part of a
larger security debate after data breaches
involving retailers Neiman Marcus and
Target. Target, the nation’s second-largest
retail discounter, has said 40 million credit
and debit card accounts were exposed
between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.
The company went public with the breach
on Dec. 19, several days after it said it
learned of the problem and soon after the
news began leaking online. Since then,
sales, profit and stock prices have dropped,
the company’s chief information officer has
resigned and banks and retailers are facing
continued scrutiny about what more can be
done to protect consumer data.
The Justice Department is investigating
the data theft, and Holder urged Congress in a
video statement last month to adopt a
national notification standard that would
include exemptions for harmless breaches.
“This would empower the American people
to protect themselves if they are at risk of
identity theft. It would enable law enforce-
ment to better investigate these crimes and
to hold compromised entities accountable
when they fail to keep sensitive information
safe,” he said in the statement.
Such proposals have been around for
years.
An Obama administration plan from 2011
would have required businesses that collect
personal information on more than 10,000
people in any 12-month period to disclose
potentially harmful breaches and for breach-
es that affect more than 5,000 people to be
reported to consumer credit reporting agen-
cies and the federal government.
Past congressional efforts to agree on a
standard have failed. Currently, 46 states
and the District of Columbia have their own
breach notification laws, according to the
National Conference of State Legislatures.
Proposals now before Congress would
require notification. But there are differ-
ences in what information the notification
would provide, the threshold for notifying
regulators and law enforcement, and the
proposed enforcement. Some bills seek
criminal penalties for deliberately conceal-
ing a breach; others do not.
No consensus on how to notify data breach victims

NEWYORK — Happy 5th birth-
day, bull market.
The current bull run is not the
longest, or strongest in history,
but it has survived a near default
by the U.S. government, a debt
crisis in Europe, and a war in
Syria.
Despite all the obstacles thrown
in its way, this bull market is now
the fourth-longest since 1945,
according to S&P Capital IQ. The
Standard & Poor’s 500 index is up
178 percent in the five years since
it bottomed out on March 9, 2009.
Abull market is a rise of 20 per-
cent or more over a period of at
least six months, following a
decline of 20 percent or more. The
run-up over the past five years has
been helped by stimulus from the
Federal Reserve, record corporate
profits, the economic recovery
and companies repurchasing their
own stock.
The current bull had a tough start
to 2014. In January, the S&P 500
index fell 3.6 percent on concerns
about slowing growth in China
and other emerging markets.
Investors also worried about the
strength of the U.S. economy.
This month, the market has been
rattled by events in Ukraine,
where the region of Crimea is
preparing for a referendum on
whether to split away and join
Russia. President Barack Obama
and several other Western leaders
have condemned the referendum.
Despite the latest setbacks,
stocks recovered and the S&P 500
index closed at a record high of
1,878.04 on Friday.
There have been 11 bull markets
since 1945. The longest one
stretched for almost a decade,
between October 1990 and March
2000. The average bull market
lasts 4-1/2 years, making the cur-
rent one longer than average.
The last bull market ended in
October 2007, as the financial cri-
sis was taking hold. The S&P 500
index dropped 57 percent from a
record high of 1,565.15 on Oct. 9,
2009, before bottoming out at
676.53 on March 9, 2009.
Typically, bull markets end
when investors get spooked by a
recession, or anticipate one, and
sell stocks. None of that is hap-
pening, which suggests this bull
may have room to run yet. The
economy appears to be strength-
ening rather than faltering.
Corporate profits are at record lev-
els. The job market is gradually
improving and consumer confi-
dence is rising.
Inflation also remains low.
When the Fed starts to worry about
rising prices, it hikes interest
rates to curb them. The higher
rates can tip an economy into
recession and prompt a sell-off in
stocks.
But with inflation under control,
the Fed has stressed that it plans
to keep its key short-term rate
near zero for an extended period.
Stock valuations remain in line
with historical averages, says
John Manley, chief equity strate-
gist at Wells Fargo Fund
Management. The price-earnings
ratio for the next twelve months,
which measures stock prices com-
pared with forecast earnings,
stands at 15.5, slightly below its
20-year average of 16.4.
Despite significant obstacles, the bull market turns 5 years old

MORE CCS TITLES: MENLO GIRLS AND SHP BOYS WIN HOOPS CROWNS; HALF MOON BAY CLAIMS SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP >> PAGE 12

CAMPBELL — When your
school’s soccer team has never
won a Central Coast Section title
— let alone appeared in a champi-
onship game — it doesn’t com-
plain when it has to share a crown.
It’s better than alternative.
The Serra boys’ soccer team, in
its first-ever CCS finals appear-
ance, rallied from a 1-0 deficit to
force overtime before settling for
a 2-2 tie with Gilroy in the
Division II championship game at
Westmont High School Saturday.
“We’re all pretty excited,” said
Serra coach Jeff Panos. “I know
it’s a shared title, but to get the
title nonetheless is really special.
… The kids are going to put a
(CCS champion) banner up in the
gym. That’s just incredibly spe-
cial.”
The emotions ran the gamut for
both teams. Gilroy controlled the
first 60 minutes of the game, hav-
ing several near misses before
finally converting in 56th minute
for a 1-0 lead.
The Padres took over the game
for the final 20 minutes of regula-
tion and forced overtime on the
first of two Nick Schnabel goals.
Schnabel tallied again three
minutes into overtime, but the
Mustangs tied the score off a
deflection in the five minutes later.
When the final whistle sounded
following the second 10-minute
overtime period, many of the
players from both sides collapsed
to the ground in pure exhaustion.
Not surprising as the tempera-
ture pushed 80 degrees.
“After the second overtime,
everyone was just exhausted,”
Panos said. “I don’t know if we
could have played any more quali-
ty soccer. I think both teams left it
all out on the field.”
If not for the play of the Padres
defensive line and goalkeeper
Logan Wolf, Gilroy could have
easily taken the title by itself. The
Mustangs put five shots on goal in
the first half, with Wolf making

SANTA CLARA — Aragon boys’ basket-
ball coach Sam Manu is going to need a nap
at some point when the Dons season finally
reaches a conclusion.
Manu said he didn’t get to sleep until about
4 in the morning Thursday following his
team’s 94-93 triple-overtime win over Aptos
in the Central Coast Section Division III
semifinals Wednesday night.
Manu wasn’t expecting much more rest
after his Dons topped Valley Christian 61-55
to claim the CCS Division III championship
at Santa Clara University Saturday after-
noon.
“I’m definitely not going to sleep
tonight!” Manu said after Saturday’s win,
which qualified Aragon for the Northern
California tournament beginning this week.
The title is the first for the Aragon boys’
basketball program since 1994, when the
Dons beat Los Gatos 68-64.
“This whole season has been a blessing for
us,” Manu said. “We’re very thankful.”
The Dons went about claiming the only
CCS boys’ basketball title by a public
school by playing completely against char-
acter. Aragon is known mainly for its up-
tempo offense, not its half-court sets and
defensive prowess.
But that is exactly how the Dons knocked
off a team from the West Catholic Athletic
League. The Dons did manage to get in tran-
sition several times during the game, but
more often than not, they found themselves
patiently passing the ball around the perime-
ter until an opportunity presented itself.
Patience was the name of the game
Saturday.
“Our game is (to) run, but coach said to be
patient,” said Aragon’s Toby Liebergesell,
who scored a game-high 28 points — 17
coming in the second half.
In addition to Liebergesell’s 28, point
guard Alex Manu added 17 and wing Kevin
Hahn added nine points, six rebounds and
four block shots.

SAN JOSE — Two corner kicks doomed
Woodside girls’ soccer team, as the No. 4-
seed Wildcats came up short in the Central
Coast Section Division II title game,
falling 2-0 to No. 10-seed Mitty (17-5-4) at
Valley Christian.
Mitty defender Mabinty Kanu was a force
both sides of the ball. The senior
stonewalled the Woodside offense, refusing
them a clean shot on goal throughout the
match to all but gift wrap a shutout for
Monarchs goalie Brooke Lisowski. Kanu
also netted a first-half goal to get Mitty on
the board.
Woodside (17-3-3) actually shared a co-
championship last season, but came away
from the tie more disappointed than in los-
ing this year, according to Woodside head
coach Jose Navarrete.
“They were more disappointed last year
with their co-championship than their
effort [Saturday],” Navarrete said. “I think
they gave a very good effort. … [S]ome-
times the ball will go in, sometimes it
won’t. Today wasn’t our day. ”
In the first half, the Wildcats had plenty of
opportunities, but got few shots on goal.

The last thing Bellarmine head coach
Patrick Schneider told his team as they held a
two-point lead over No. 3-seed Menlo-
Atherton heading into the closing seconds of
Saturday’s Central Coast Section Division I
title game was simple.
“We don’t want to give up a made 2. But
don’t give up a 3,” Schneider said.
Menlo-Atherton (18-9) got a chance at each
in the waning second, but could not convert
either, as No. 4-seed Bellarmine (12-16) per-
severed 43-41 to capture its third straight
CCS crown and its 12th all time.
With eight seconds remaining in regula-
tion, M-A took a timeout trailing by two to
reset its half-court offense. Bears head coach
Mike Molieri wanted to get the ball into the
hands of guard Leland Callahan. That they did.
The 5-10 guard had a seemingly open look out
of the corner from beyond the arc. He took the
shot, but Bellarmine senior Amador Nazarov
somehow covered seemingly insurmountable
ground to block it.
“[Callahan] got to the corner, he got open,
and I was like— oh man, I let this game end
on a 3 from a guy who’s a lot shorter than
me,” Nazarov said. “So, I knew I had the
chance to block the shot. I just sprinted as
high as I could and jumped as high as I could.
It wasn’t a big block but it was a tip. I did the
best I could there.”
Off the deflection, the live ball bounded
towards the key with the final five seconds
winding down. Callahan again came up with it
and forced a jumper in traffic. The hurried shot
got away clean, but came up short as the
buzzer sounded.
“We wanted to win the game, quite frankly,
at the end of the game,” Molieri said. “I didn’t
think we had a lot in us going into overtime.”
Bellarmine actually scored the eventual
game-winning bucket off a blocked shot as
well. With 43 seconds remaining in the game,
M-A’s Deverick Meacham made a physical
effort to swat a shot on the inside. However,
Nazarov came up with the loose ball and laid it

Of the last men standing in top-seeded Half
Moon Bay’s 3-2 overtime victory in
Saturday’s Central Coast Section Division
III title match, the Cougars (17-5-1) had one
more man than its opponent.
Half Moon Bay scored the decisive goal
against Burlingame in the12th minute of
overtime. Half Moon Bay head coach Jeff
Turgeon described the decisive goal by jun-
ior Jonathan Rico.
“Zack Penner drove it over midfield into
their attacking third and Rico was making a
run on the outside,” Turgeon said. “He just
threw the defense as far as he could and
[Penner] passed it to Rico, and Rico had a 1-
on-1 and put it under the goalie.”
The game took a dramatic turn in the open-
ing minutes, however, when the Panthers’
Nick Darnell received a red card in the sixth
minute of play in preventing a breakaway
attempt, forcing No. 3-seed Burlingame to
play a short, 10-man squad for the rest of the
match.
Despite the disadvantage, Burlingame (15-
5-3) played it tight after falling behind 1-0
in the first half. Panthers senior Jonah
Snyder tied it up on the final play of the half
with a header at the back post for a game-
tying goal. In the opening minutes of the
second half, Burlingame junior Baxter
Kindler-Balmy got into the keeper’s box for
a backdoor goal, giving the Panthers a 2-1
lead.
Half Moon Bay answered with two consec-
utive goals of its own, though. The Cougars
initially took the lead on a penalty kick
early in the first half. The Cougars’ Zack
Penner drew a foul and junior Kevin Perez
converted the penalty kick, giving Half
Moon Bay a 1-0 advantage.
Trailing 2-1 late in the second half, Half
Moon Bay converted a corner kick to tie it.
Burlingame had a shot to intercept, but the
inbound kick wormed through traffic right to
the foot of junior Christian Castaneda, who
booted it into corner net to score the dramat-
ic tying goal.
Half Moon Bay would cash in during the
second overtime period to capture the first
ever boys’ soccer title in school history.
And the celebration ensued.
“The boys ran to Rico, who scored the
winning goal,” Turgeon said. “They all
crowded him, and then ran to the stands and
jumped in there and hugged their parents and
friends. … They were very excited.”
The Burlingame reaction, after playing
with one less player than Half Moon Bay for
94 minutes, was a very different one.
“At the end of the game they all dropped to
the floor,” Burlingame head coach David
Siracusa said. “We had spoke all year about
how we wanted to be the last team standing,
and it was pretty defining to see us all drop to
the ground when the final whistle blew. They
were exhausted.”
The comeback in Saturday’s championship
was a microcosm of the entire season for
Half Moon Bay. After starting the season 3-
4, the Cougars won 10 straight games dating
back to the midway point of the regular sea-
son and culminating in Saturday’s triumph.
“I’m just so proud of the guys for really
stepping up, because when we finished that
first half of regulation … they were frustrat-
ed,” Turgeon said. “The guys were bickering
at each other, saying, ‘We missed a lot of
goals we should have finished, and we did-
n’t.’ So, I had to re-calm them down, get
them focused … and they turned it around and
did a really good job.”

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
Top-seeded Menlo School captured its
second straight Central Coast Section
Division IV championship Saturday by
beating West Bay Athletic League Skyline
Division champion and sixth-seeded
Castilleja, 49-40.
Menlo (18-11) jumped out to an 18-9 lead
after the first quarter. Castilleja stayed in the
game, trailing by eight at halftime, but
Menlo extended its lead to 11 going into the
fourth quarter and held off the Gators from
there.
Menlo’s freshman point guard Sam
Erisman had her coming out party, scoring a
game-high 17 points while handing out
seven assists. Sophomore Hannah Paye
added 13 in the win, sophomore McKenize
Duffner grabbed 11 rebounds for the
Knights and sophomore Olivia Pellarin
blocked five shots.
Paige Vermeer led Castilleja (20-10) with
11 points, while 6-3 center Yasmeen Afifi
was limited to just four points.
With the win, Menlo earns a spot in the
Northern California tournament will most
like host a first-round game Wednesday,
against an opponent to be determined.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAS VEGAS — Brad Keselowski surged
ahead on the final lap when Dale Earnhardt
Jr. ran out of fuel, claiming a dramatic vic-
tory Sunday in the NASCAR race at Las
Vegas Motor Speedway.
When Earnhardt’s Chevy slowed in the
final miles, Keselowski roared past in his
Penske Ford for the first weekend sweep in
his career. He followed up Saturday’s
Nationwide Series victory with his first
Vegas Cup win.
Keselowski, the 2012 Sprint Cup champi-
on, also virtually assured himself of a spot
in the Chase for the Sprint Cup champi-
onship after missing it entirely last season,
a thought was already on his mind immedi-
ately after the finish.
“Locked in the Chase
early,” Keselowski said.
“I don’t have to hear all
that crap about not being
in the Chase.”
Earnhardt was just a few
ounces of fuel shy of
earning his second victo-
ry in three races to start
the season. The Daytona
500 champion also fin-
ished second last week at Phoenix before
improving the best start to a season in his
NASCAR career.
“We weren’t supposed to make it,”
Earnhardt said. “We were trying to save as
much as we can and make it work, but we
knew we were short. We wouldn’t have fin-
ished second if we didn’t have that strate-
gy. ”
Paul Menard finished third in front of
Keselowski’s teammate, pole-sitter Joey
Logano. Carl Edwards was fifth, and Jimmie
Johnson came in sixth.
The Las Vegas race is the first of 11 on
1.5-mile tracks, and NASCAR spent much
of the offseason working on ways to
improve the racing on these tracks with a
new aerodynamics package and other
improvements. The changes resulted in 23
drivers breaking the track speed record dur-
ing qualifying, but the racing wasn’t partic-
ularly thrilling until that final lap.
Keselowski and Earnhardt are the only
two drivers to finish in the top five in each
of the season’s first three races, and they
dueled down the stretch after Earnhardt
passed him for the lead on a restart with 42
laps to go. Earnhardt had gone to the pits on
the 211th lap and attempted to stick it out,
while Keselowski had pitted several laps
later.
Earnhardt praised NASCAR’s new Chase
setup, which allowed him to take a fuel gam-
ble in Vegas after winning already this sea-
son. Additional wins are worth bonus
points in the Chase, while a second-place
finish doesn’t help his position much —
hence the motivation to go for broke on an
empty tank.
Keselowski was in fine form after his
third-place finish in Phoenix last week
without crew chief Paul Wolfe, who had
returned home for his child’s birth.
Keselowski also finished third at Daytona.

BOSTON — The ladies of Wellesley College
will still be allowed to plant kisses on pass-
ing runners and crowds will still flock to the
finish line at the 118th Boston Marathon.
But a year after deadly twin explosions
turned the race’s festive final dash into a scene
of devastation, police and organizers of the
world’s oldest annual marathon find them-
selves balancing security with its traditional-
ly festive atmosphere.
“We want this event to be what it always has
been, and that’s a special day for the city, the
best marathon in the world.” said Boston
Police Commissioner William Evans. “We
don’t want to change that.”
But the bombing has affected nearly every
detail of planning for the April 21 race as
police work to beef up security along the
26.2-mile course. Participants who favor
flamboyant costumes will have to tone it
down, and unregistered “bandit” runners will
no longer be permitted. Runners won’t be
allowed to stow personal items in a backpack
but instead will be provided with clear plastic
bags to hold a change of clothes that will be
bused to the finish line.
And spectators will encounter security
checkpoints along with hundreds more offi-
cers, bomb-sniffing dogs and other security
measures that haven’t yet been disclosed.
Public safety officials are expected to release
more details Monday.
“We are going to have a lot of security, but
we want to do it more low-key so we don’t
alarm people who might want to come,”
Evans said.
Last year, authorities say two brothers built
bombs out of pressure cookers, carried them
to the finish line in backpacks and set them
off. The bombs tore into the crowd, killing
three people and injuring more than 260.
This year, spectators are being strongly dis-
couraged from bringing backpacks, coolers,
quilts and other bulky items.
“People have to realize that if they are
going to come, they are going to be subjected
to the possibility of searches,” Evans said.
Police believe the expanded field and the
“Boston Strong” solidarity that followed the
attack could attract up to a million spectators
— about twice the usual number. The Boston
Athletic Association accepted 9,000 extra
runners, including about 5,000 who were
forced to stop last year and thousands more
who want to run to pay tribute to the victims
of the attack.
Security experts say the marathon presents
a huge challenge.
“You need the convergence of luck and tim-
ing and fabulous intelligence, great police
work. You need the stars and the moon and
everything to line up together in order for it to
be 100 percent safe,” said Robert Tucker, chief
executive officer of T&M Protection
Resources, a New York-based security firm.

Perhaps their best chance of the half was in
the eighth minute on a near breakaway by
forward Jillienne Aguilera. The sophomore
seemed to have a step on Kanu, but the super-
star defender backpedalled hurriedly to close
the mark and disrupt Aguilera’s progress and
stifle the attempt.
Ten minutes later, Kanu shined on the
other side of the field to put the ball in the
goal with a clutch header, giving Mitty the
lead. In the 18th minute, the Monarchs took
advantage of the pivotal corner kick as
sophomore Carly Jones’ kick arced into the
center of the penalty box allowing Kanu to
out-jump the defense and head the ball into
goal, giving Mitty a 1-0 lead.
Monarchs head coach J.T. Hanley was not
surprised his senior defender got through to
score the clutch goal — Kanu’s fourth of the
year.
“Mabiny Kanu … athletically, and tacti-
cally, and technically, she is the best central
defender in the section,” Hanley said. “So,
no, I wasn’t surprised…. She was out there
the whole time. She never stepped off the
field. She’s one of the only players that we
did not substitute throughout the entire play-
off run.”
With Mitty’s one-goal edge, the match
turned physical in a hurry. Two of
Woodside’s biggest stars sustained injuries.
In the first half, Wildcats defender Gianna
Rosati took an incidental head butt to the
nose, but managed to remain in the game.
“It was really physical,” Rosati said. “I
think I broke my nose.”
Late in the second half, freshman goal-
keeper Sarah Preston took a kick to the right
ankle and had to be helped from the field in
leaving the game. Despite an outcry from a
few of the many orange-clad Woodside fans
on hand, Navarrete said he thought it was
incidental contact that caused Preston’s
injury.
“There was no malice,” Navarrete said.
Prior to Preston’s injury, Mitty added its
second goal, all but cinching the title. Like
the first goal, it came off a corner kick. This
time, junior Kristina Sola booted it into traf-
fic. The ball initially glanced off Mara
Galeb-Roskopp deep in the penalty box.
Although she couldn’t get a clean shot, just
the threat of one drew Preston to far-left
goal. But as the ball glanced away from
Galeb-Roskopp, Mitty junior Ashley
Kirchick came up with it and quickly drove it
in to a veritably empty net.
“For the past month, we’ve probably got
three or four goals off big [corner kicks] like
that, and … in these games it’s gold,”
Hanley said.
Woodside had one of its many chances in
the first half on a corner kick of its own just
a minute before Mitty got on the board.
Senior middle Heather Seybert booted the
corner into traffic with Rosati putting a good
header on it. However, the shot flew over the
crossbar for a miss.
In the second half, during the 53rd minute,
Woodside junior Madison Holland timed a
pass out front of Aguilera to exploit a 1-on-
1 matchup. Aguilera flashed some agility
passing the defender by crossing to the
inside, but with the ball getting out in front
of her, Lisowski charged it from the keeper’s
box to close the window and cover the ball
for one of her gutsiest plays of the match.
“I think that we had the ball most of the
time,” Rosati said. “We weren’t possessing
it that much, but we definitely had most of
the opportunities. … I think they had maybe
two or three shots on goal and two of them
went in. But it was the difference.”
Navarrete agreed, and said Woodside only
managed three or four legitimate shots
throughout.
“It didn’t happen by itself,” Naverrete
said. “We’ve got to credit Mitty. They played
with a lot of intensity and threw us off our
game a little. We had to start possessions
very, very deep. Our midfielders very rarely
started a possession inside the [30-yard
line], or anything like that. So, it’s to their
credit.”
For Woodside, Saturday’s title-game
appearance marks the sixth in program his-
tory. The Wildcats won their lone outright
title in 1977. They went on to advance to
CCS championship games in 1980, ’08, and
’10, before sharing a co-championship with
Santa Teresa last season.
The Wildcats, who will only graduate five
seniors this year, stand to be a competitive
force in the years to come though. Preston, a
freshman, has proven an outstanding goal-
keeper, playing in 14 of Woodside’s 17
shutouts this year.
Also, this year’s freshman class, led by
forward Isabella Bascara, has been an essen-
tial component to the team’s success.
Saturday, Bascara was all over the field, help-
ing Woodside to dominate possessions late
in the first half and early in the second half.
And all in all the Wildcats walked off the
field with their heads held high Saturday.
“I am a little bit (disappointed),” Bascara
said. “But I think we can definitely learn for
next year. Next year we’ll come out … really
strong.”
Woodside girls’ soccer teams usually do.

Detroit Lions owner
William Clay Ford dies at 88
DETROIT — William Clay Ford, the last
surviving grandchild of automotive pioneer
Henry Ford and owner of the Detroit Lions,
has died. He was 88.
Ford Motor Co. said in a statement Sunday
that Ford died of pneumonia at his home in
Grosse Pointe, Mich. Ford helped steer the
family business for more than five decades.
He bought one of his own, the NFLfranchise
in the Motor City, a half-century ago.
He served as an employee and board mem-
ber of the automaker for more than half of its
100-year history.
Ford was regarded as a dignified man by the
select few who seemed to know him well. To
the masses in Detroit, he was simply the
owner of the Lions who struggled to achieve
success on the field despite showing his pas-
sion for winning by spending money on free
agents, coaches, executives and facilities.
Ford’s first full season leading the Lions
was in 1964, seven years after the franchise
won the NFL title. The lone playoff victory
he enjoyed was in 1992. The Lions are the
only team to go 0-16 in a season, hitting
rock bottom in 2008. After an 11-year
drought, the Lions improved enough to
make the playoffs in 2011 only to lose a
combined 21 games over the next two sea-
sons.
Born into an automotive fortune in 1925
bearing what was already a household name,
Ford was 23 when he joined the Ford Motor
Co. board of directors in 1948, one year after
the death of his grandfather, Henry Ford.

in to give the Bells a 43-41 edge.
After taking the lead in the closing
seconds of the first half, Bellarmine
led throughout the third quarter and
into the fourth. But Bears senior
Royce Branning hit a shot to give M-
Aits first lead of the second half with
6:17 remaining in the fourth quarter.
The lead would ultimately change
hands four times in the quarter.
But all the breaks started going
Bellarmine’s way from there.
On M-A’s next possession,
Branning had a chance to add to the
lead on a 1-on-1 attempt, but missed.
Thirty seconds later, Bears big man
Oliver Bucka rolled an ankle and had
to leave the game after being notice-
ably hobbled.
As a result, the Bears shifted to a
zone defense after playing exclusive-
ly man-to-man throughout the game,
and for most of the season, but
Bellarmine was able of quickly tak-
ing advantage of the loss of M-A’s
senior center.
Bells freshman Anjelo Athens sud-
denly found a lane to the hoop to
give Bellarmine a 36-35 lead. M-A
responded when Grant Henninger hit
a hook shot with 3:15 remaining to
put the Bears back up, 37-36. But
Bellarmine senior Dylan Tarpening
answered by hitting a clutch 3 to give
the Bells a 39-37 lead, and they
would not trail again.
“It’s a tough game but sometimes
shots will fall for you, sometimes
they won’t,” Branning said. “It
seemed like, for Bellarmine, they
were falling, and for us they couldn’t
quite get there.”
That wasn’t the case in the first
half. Bellarmine shot just 4 for 19 in
the half. With a pair of clutch 3-
pointers from senior guard Max Le,
and another from junior guard Kyle
Owens, the Bells hit just one 2-point
shot in the half. However, M-Acom-
mitted 15 fouls in the first half,
allowing Bellarmine to convert 10
points via free throws, including a
pair by Le with nine second remain-
ing to give the Bells the lead going
into halftime.
“We were a little overly aggres-
sive, but we were close enough at
half,” Molieri said. “So, that really
didn’t hurt us. We got away with it. …
The second half was our kind of score
in the 40s. … They were one basket
better than us.”
Nazarov tabbed a game-high 10
points for Bellarmine. Branning and
senior Markus Guegler shared a team-
high eight point apiece for M-A. The
Bears outrebounded the Bells 27-18
throughout, but after a 16-8 differ-
ence in the first half, the Bells stayed
nearly even in the second half. Bucka
had a game-high eight rebounds for
the Bears, but only one came in the
second half.
“Menlo-Atherton’s coaching staff
just does a phenomenal job,”
Schneider said. “They have more
plays that they run really well than
I’ve seen in my 25 years of high-
school coaching. They do a great job
running their plays, they do a super
job highlighting the skills of play-
ers. It was a really hard scout job to
get ready for them.”
For M-A, Saturday’s game marked
the fifth appearance in a CCS title
game in program history. The Bears
won back-to-back crowns in 1988
and ’89 then went on to finish as run-
ner-up in ’07 and ’08.
With this year’s squad not having
seen M-A advance past the second
round of CCS in their four year’s at
the school, the sting of Saturday’s
loss was noticeable.
“We love each other, we play for
each other, and when it’s close games
we look in others eyes and say: Let’s
do this right here,” Branning said.
“This one stings a bit because we’re
brothers.”

It was that patience that got the Dons the
lead. It was their defense that cemented the
championship. The first big defensive stop
came with Aragon clinging to a 54-51 lead
when Hahn came up with his third of four
blocks of the game, giving the Dons the
possession.
With the lead still at three, it was Aragon
that came up with a loose ball after the
Warriors fumbled it in the offensive end.
With under two minutes to play, Alex Manu
came up with a clutch offensive rebound
which allowed the Dons to run some more
time off the clock.
With just over a minute left and the Dons
still nursing that 54-51 advantage, Aragon
came up with a steal.
The Dons failed to build on their lead, how-
ever, by missing the front end of a 1-and-1 at
the free-throw line, but Aragon again denied
the Warriors on the offensive end, with Hahn
partially blocking a 3-point attempt and
Liebergesell grabbing the loose ball.
He was fouled and went on to ice the game
from the free-throw line, converting 5 of 6
free throws in the final 29 seconds.
Liebergesell’s’ play was key in keeping
the Dons in the game. After scoring 11
points in the first half, Liebergesell poured
in nine in the third quarter alone, trimming a
six-point halftime deficit to just three, 46-
43, going into the fourth quarter.
He added eight more over the final eight
minutes to give Aragon it’s first CCS title, in
any sport, since the girls’ soccer team tied
for the 2012 Division II crown.
“I was just staying patient,” Liebergesell
said. “When everyone is keying on my team-
mates, that’s when I step up.”
In the first half, it appeared Valley
Christian’s Stephen Ellis was going to sin-
gle-handedly carry the Warriors to the title.
He scored 18 points in the first two quarters,
draining six 3s in the process.
Aragon, as a team finished with seven.
Despite Ellis’ hot shooting, the Dons
stayed within striking distance. They opened
with a 6-2 run and led 13-7 following a
Liebergesell baseline layup with 3:36 left in
the opening quarter.
Valley Christian responded with a 12-4 run
to close the period and take a 19-17 lead.
Ellis had 10 points in the quarter, but his
production gradually tailed off the rest of the
game as he finished with 25 points.
Aragon, meanwhile, kept plugging along.
Down 27-20 with 5:44 left in the half,
Liebergesell converted a three-point play and
added a pair of free throws to cut the Warriors’
lead to 27-25, but Aragon scored only four
points over the final four minutes, while
Ellis stroked a pair of 3s to close the half
with Valley Christian up 35-29.
Which was fine with Manu.
“When we came in at break, I told them this
is the kind of game we want,” Manu said. “We
knew [Ellis] couldn’t stay that hot all game
long.”
Aragon cut three points off its deficit
going into the fourth quarter, but the
Warriors pushed it back to five, 51-46 with
6:16 to play.
Valley Christian would score only four
more points the rest of the way.
The Dons responded with one of their
quick, multi-point outburst, taking control
of the game. Liebergesell knocked down a 3
to cut the deficit to 51-49 and Hahn nailed a 3
of his own to give the Dons the lead for
good, 52-51, with 4:32 to play.
Alex Manu followed with a jumper before
the Dons closed the championship on the
free-throw line, hitting 7 of 8 inside the final
minute.
“We’re not done yet,” Liebergesell said,
referencing the Nor Cal tournament. “But
this is a big milestone (victory) for us.”

saves on all five. Wolf finished the game
with eight saves.
“Logan had a tremendous game. He’s a had
a few ups and downs this year, but I think he
rises up to the occasion in the big game.”
On a couple other occasions, Gilroy had
would-be goals turned away when the Serra
defense made last-line-of-defense clear-
ances.
Serra appeared to take a 1-0 lead in the
11th minute when midfielder Patrick
Philpott chased a ball down at the endline
and sent a cross into the middle of the
Mustangs’ goalbox, where Gerald
Ingemansson volleyed the shot home.
The assistant referee on the right sideline,
however, raised his flag to indicate the ball
crossed the endline and was out of bounds,
negating the goal.
The Padres had another goal in the second
half waved off in the 48th minute following
a whistle on a free kick. Kyle Wan’s shot
from 45 yards out clanged off the crossbar
and down to Nick Bucher, who roofed a shot
into the net. But the official ruled offside,
negating another Serra score.
“We have to take care of what we control
and those calls don’t fall into that catego-
ry,” Panos said. “We didn’t establish our
possession game. Missing our attacking
midfielder (Michael Neher) hurt us.”
Eight minutes after Serra’s second goal
was disallowed, the Mustangs scored the
first tally that stood. Gilroy (16-4-5) earned
a free kick deep in its own end and 80 yards
away from the Serra goal, the Mustangs put
together two good touches. The first was
Sean Kaufman’s booming kick that sailed
into the Padres’ penalty box. Emanuel Cruz
ran by two defenders and touched a shot past
a charging Wolf to give Gilroy a 1-0 with 24
minutes to play.
“[Gilroy’s] speed to find the seams in our
defense, they found it all game,” Panos said.
“I as impressed with that.”
It took a change up top for the Padres that
ultimately led to the equalizing goal.
Schnabel struggled with Gilroy’s tall, lanky
center fullback Jordan Juarez. Following the
Mustangs’ goal, Panos brought in David
Tillack, who matched up well on Juarez.
“[Tillack] does a real good job with the
ball at his feet,” Panos said. “We figured that
would disrupt play enough to free up Nick.
When Nick got out on the wing, he was able
to turn with the ball.”
With Schnabel on the wing, he finally
came alive, using a tremendous individual
effort to knot the score at 1 four minutes
from the end of regulation.
Schnabel received a pass on the left wing
and went at a pair of Gilroy defenders 20
yards from goal. Schnabel managed to
maintain possession while shedding the
defenders, found a sliver of space and with
his left foot and tucked a shot inside the near
left post for the equalizer.
“That finish … was with the left foot,
which would be considered his weaker foot,”
Panos said.
Three minutes into the first overtime peri-
od, Schnabel produced again on a similar
effort to put the Padres 17 minutes away
from the championship.
“When you have a special player like Nick
Schnabel, I couldn’t imagine him playing
his last (high school game) without a little
bit of his magic (showing up),” Panos said.
But Gilroy found a little late-game magic
of its own to forge the tie with two minutes
remaining in the opening 10-minute over-
time period. Andres Jimenez took a shot
from just outside the Serra penalty box
which deflected off a defender and spun away
from Wolf to tie the game at 2.
Gilroy managed the only shot on goal in
the second overtime and when the final 10
minutes finally ticked off the clock, the
teams settled for the co-championship.
“I really felt Gilroy played a strong game,
had the better of play in the middle of the
field,” Panos said. “For them to get the
equalizer was deserved.”

The Menlo School girls’ soccer team won
its second straight CCS championship, but
they’ll have to share this one with their
neighbor, Sacred Heart Prep.
It is the Gators’ second CCS title in five
years, having won it previously in 2009.
It’s the second time in three meetings this
year that Menlo (17-3-3) and SHP (19-2-3)
have finished in a tie, having battled to a 1-1
draw on Jan. 9. In the regular-season rematch
Jan. 30, the Knights came away with a 2-1
victory.
After 80 minutes of scoreless regulation
play Saturday, the Gators appeared to get the
game winner in 88th minute — eight minutes
into the first of two mandatory 10-minute
overtime periods — when Cameron Gordon
finally broke the deadlock.
In the final 10-minute overtime period, the
Knights struck for the equalizer when Sierra
Stritter’s strike found the back of the net in
the 96th minute in the 96th minute — four

rocery store shelves are lined
with chocolate bunnies waiting
to be nibbled, ears first. Easter
is around the corner. To animal shel-
ters, this brings a heightened interest
in bunnies. This year, we’ve noticed a
disturbing trend. Since pet stores have
mostly stopped selling rabbits, the
void’s been filled with rabbit breeders
advertising on Craigslist and social
media. Their current specialty appears
to be small white rabbits with blue eyes
and lion head fur, though they are also
selling many other types, including
always popular dwarf rabbits. And, as
we could have predicted, we’ve seen an
unusual number of blue-eyed rabbits sur-
rendered to our shelter, something that
had been extremely rare. They are get-
ting dumped for the same reason as
before, when pet store sales were big:
impulse buys and unrealistic expecta-
tions stemming from a lack of educa-
t i on. When the novelty wears off, the
bunnies get dumped at a shelter. One of
our volunteers was in a major pet store
chain’s checkout line, directly behind
someone with a cart load of rabbit sup-
plies. The person asked her if she knew
anything about rabbits. This person
just bought a rabbit from a breeder; she
handed over a check, got the bunny, but
no information about rabbit care, diet,
housing, handling or socialization. She
didn’t know rabbits, for example, can
be litterbox trained or need hay as part
of their diet. Animal advocates had a
hand in the discontinuation of pet store
sales, but the “kitchen breeders” have
moved in. Please know that PHS/SPCA,
other shelters and bunny rescue groups
like House Rabbit Society have many
great rabbits awaiting adoption. Paying
a breeder is no guarantee of anything
special. In fact, it is often the opposite
for families and bunnies. The only per-
son who wins is the one who takes your
cash or check. When you adopt, you’re
set up for success; collecting an adop-
tion fee is secondary to making good,
lasting matches.

a church, the Saint Matthew’s Episcopal
Church. The church was completed in 1866
and this first stone church in California
became the place to worship for many of the
area’s rich and influential, such as D.O. Mills,
the Howards, Tilton, Dows, Goodhue and
Taylor families, etc.
The Mills family had been very active in the
funding and erection of the church and the fam-
ily continued to use the church as a place of
worship whenever they returned to the West
Coast during their winter vacations.Daughter
Elizabeth Mills Reid now lived on the East
Coast with her husband Whitelaw Reid, who
had been an American diplomat to Great
Britain as well as editor of the New York
Tribune. She was very proud and interested in
her "hometown” roots. She had been active in
many charities and, while living in New York,
organized the New York Chapter of the
American Red Cross. Philanthropist
Elisabeth Mills Reid and other individuals, Dr.
W.C. Chidester and St. Matthew’s church Rev.
Neptune Blood William Gallwey, pledged
funds and help to build and operate on the
church’s property an emergency medical facil-
ity. A parish nurse was to be housed in the
facility also. In 1907, the building was dedi-
cated by the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese,
the Rev. William Ford Nichols. Atemporary
dispensary plus a room for patients, staffed by
three nurses, opened in 1907. An enlarged
facility with six beds opened in 1908. The
head nurse and surgical nurse rotated 12-hour
shifts at the facility which was named Church
of St. Matthew Red Cross Guild. It had no affil-
iation to the Red Cross though. The name was
later changed to Church of St. Matthew Mills
Memorial Hospital. The population of San
Mateo County was approximately 12,000 and
this increased to over 24,000 by 1910. There
were only 16 doctors in the county in 1907
and they organized the San Mateo County
Medical Society that met periodically at the
hospital.
By the end of 1908, the facilities at the hos-
pital proved to be inadequate and, in 1909, a
new facility with a capacity of 24 patients was
built after the Taylor house was purchased at
the corner of Second and El Camino Real
(parking facility now). In 1910, 300 patients
were admitted to the hospital. Again plans for
enlarged facilities were formed in 1911 that
culminated in the three-story “West Wing”
being built in time for an outbreak of flu. The
San Mateo Creek had to be rerouted and cov-
ered over. For compensation, the nurses were
paid $3 for a 22 hour shift at the hospital.
The population of San Mateo was approxi-
mately 6,000 in 1920 and the hospital had
improved its facilities. An X-ray machine was
acquired in the 1920s, the staff had increased
and the emergency room was expanded. At
this time, a nurse was paid $25 per week and
she was expected to clean the patients’ room,
scrub the floor as well as serve refreshments to
a patient’s visitors. In 1928, the East Wing
was built. The hospital now had capacity for
124 beds and a 28-bed maternity section.
Still, the hospital was struggling to keep
itself solvent. In the mid-1920s, hospital
receipts were only $96,837 while operating
expenses were $107,413. The typical bill for
a stay at the hospital, including pharmacy and
operating room, was $7.50 a day. Registered
nurses were paid $5 a day with 12- hour shifts
in homes for $7.
On April 29, 1931, Mrs. Reid died while
visiting in France. Her dedicated goal of pro-
viding health care for the citizens of San
Mateo County as well as the needy had suc-
ceeded. The facility of Mills Memorial
Hospital changed over the years but this ulti-
mate goal of providing health care to the mul-
titudes is still a legacy of the Mills family in
San Mateo County.
In 1950, the West Wing was constructed.
The total number of beds now was 151 and the
population of the community was increasing.
In 1947, Robert J. Koshland became the direc-
tor of the Peninsula Hospital District. His task
was to open a new hospital in San Mateo
County. Before he left in 1963, he had opened
the newest hospital in the county, Peninsula
Hospital, on a site of the Mills estate in
Burlingame. This addition greatly enhanced
the amount of health care that could be offered
to the community that supported the two hos-
pitals.

Day, a day of global awareness regarding rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.
PJCC staff wore red because it’s the favorite color of Magglio Boscarino, the 6-year old son of
PJCC Member Services Director Becka Boscarino (center). At the age of 6 months, her young
son was diagnosed with Pompe Disease, a rare (estimated at one in every 40,000 births)

allowing the creation of the dis-
tricts which is a tangible step
toward making them a reality.
Once the ordinance is approved,
details like district boundaries
and the amount of the assess-
ment can be worked out. The
hope is to collect enough signa-
tures by April to trigger a mail-
in vote to form the district and
have the first assessments
appear on property tax bills by
this fall.
Redwood City and its former
redevelopment agency invested
more than $64 million in its
downtown but a combination of
the state dissolving the RDAs,
the recession keeping visitors at
bay and then an uptick in visi-
tors have contributed to chal-
lenges in continuing financial
support. The city currently
spends more than $2.5 million
maintaining streets, operating
parking facilities and providing
police and plans to continue
doing so at this baseline but the
proposed assessments would
address enhanced services for the
growing need, according to
Economic Development
Manager Sean Brooks’ summary
to the City Council.
A property owner steering
committee has met three times
to survey property owners and
found support among those who
participated.
As a charter city, Redwood
City can create its own proce-
dures and rules for the districts
rather than abiding by state law.
The proposed city ordinance
calls for the petition for cre-
ation to be signed by property
owners paying at least 30 per-
cent of the proposed assess-
ments and no one owner can
account for more than two-thirds
of that 30 percent. The district
can also be established and
renewed in 20-year increments.
The city will also be ale to
give a district a payment advance
so that it can begin operating
before tax bills go out.

the fact that some company
employees have connections to
University of California at Santa
Cruz, a surf town itself.
Aside from the surf metaphor,
Maverix, founded in 2011, is
focused on the needs of high-end
research, pharmacies, academic
and government research, agricul-
tural research, biotech companies
and others.
“We’re providing them with the
picks and shovels,” he said. “We
give them the tools to store data,
do analysis and use visualization
tools.”
Maverix uses the best peer
reviewed, open source tools for
analysis, Mandelkern said.
In the past, companies would
have to hire computer program-
mers to do this work, but the cost
of sequencing has recently
dropped, allowing researchers to
do more sequences a year.
Additionally, the cloud computing
evolution has allowed for compa-
nies to not have to keep a big
computer with data on it at their
office.
Maverix focuses on more than
just human organisms for sequenc-
ing, including bacteria, potatoes,
tomatoes and cows. Those look-
ing at food items could be
researching food safety diseases.
The fact all of this can be done of
the cloud is also of help,
Mandelkern said.
“Scientists don’t work alone,
they’re collaborative,” he said.
“The cloud gives them the ability
to collaborate. The beauty of a
platform like ours is it makes it
very easy to share data, notes,
notations and to flag particular
areas of interest.”
Researchers can also share their
results with others. One gets to
choose who sees his or her
research. The company also fol-
lows a pay as you go model and
rates depend on the size of the
organism, type of analysis and
other considerations.
“It’s like LinkedIn for genomic
data,” he said.
What advice does Mandelkern
have for aspiring entrepreneurs?
“You learn a lot more by making
mistakes,” he said. “There’s a lot
of pressure to start your own com-
pany, but it’s better to work for
someone else first. … It’s not for
everybody; I’ve seen great success
and great unhappiness.”
Many students will come out of
Stanford University and have
never failed in their lives and then
start their own companies and
don’t know how to handle failure,
he said. He himself is a Stanford
graduate, holding both master’s
and bachelor’s degrees in electri-
cal engineering.
With such a strong startup back-
ground, what drew him to become a
trustee?
“I have a big interest in educa-
tion and I wouldn’t be doing what
I’m doing today if I didn’t have
that education,” he said.
“Community colleges are what we
have in San Mateo County.
They’re important for job train-
ing, transfers and were important
for people in the economic down-
turn who needed retraining.”
Mandelkern previously worked
on the companies QuickHealth,
Docent, Almondseed Software,
V.I. Corporation and others.

San Carlos officials want more
environmental testing of land
being purchased potentially for a
future hotel to determine the
water and ground’s level of con-
tamination and how much it will
cost to clean it up.
Initial studies of the three
properties collectively known as
the Landmark site — 595
Industrial Road, 850 E. San
Carlos Ave. and 810 E. San
Carlos Ave. — turned up some
contamination but more tests are
needed to know the full extent.
The drilling and testing will cost
$60,252 and be included in the
financing for buying the proper-
ties. The initial work cost
$67, 120.
The City Council must approve
the funding to Applied Water
Resources because it exceeds the
city manager’s $75,000 authority.
The primary contaminants
found so far are vinyl chloride,
cis-1, 2-dichloroethene,
trichloroethene and tetra-
chloroethene. The new work is to
confirm the levels and develop an
action plan acceptable by the San
Mateo County Environmental
Health Department.
The cost of any required remedi-
ation work could be negotiated
with property sellers, according
to Community Development
Director Al Savay.
The City Council in November
approved purchase of the 3.41-
acre land in question for nearly
$14 million. Each parcel is sepa-
rately owned but represented by a
single broker. The hope is to
resell it to a developer for a hotel
at the city’s gateway.

School district will begin its six-week
testing trial April 7. All its schools’
11th-graders will take the test, but only
Aragon, San Mateo and Hillsdale high
schools have been selected for a scien-
tific sample of the tests. Tenth-graders at
Hillsdale will also take the tests.
Schools will assigned content areas for
tests in English, math or both.
“This is the dress rehearsal,” said
Cynthia Clark, director of curriculum
and assessment for the district. “We’ll
test bandwidth, make sure network
infrastructure works and figure out
what types of computers are best. It’s
a great opportunity to find out where
the glitches are and where challenges
are.”
Students and teachers won’t find out
results for the tests, but rather will see
how the process went. They will take
survey questions and participate in
informal focus groups. The San Mateo
County Office of Education is prepar-
ing sample online surveys for admin-
istrators, teachers and students.
Nancy Magee, administrator for
board support and community rela-
tions at the county Office of
Education, said the reason for the sur-
veys is this year’s test is really a test
of the test.
“School districts have not gone
through this particular process before,
so they were asking us, and we agreed
there should probably be a thoughtful,
reflective process that’s applicable
across the county for everybody to
weigh in to measure the effectiveness
of the process itself,” she said. “One
impact of the field tests is all districts
are going to be taking it and all will
be administered on a digital device,
meaning in San Mateo County there
will be no pencil and paper tests. …
Some districts have had to go out and
purchase tech to support the tests and
we’re hoping that tech will also then
be part of the everyday instructional
tools of teachers and their classes.”
The economic situation of the past
10 years has been so dire that districts
had no choice but to go without new
tech devices, Magee said.
“With the adoption of the testing
and the determination of the state to
do field tests across the state, it was a
higher need for having to spend the
money [on devices],” she said. “In the
past, the question was do we buy com-
puters or do we keep our teachers in
the classroom?”
Meanwhile, in the Sequoia Union
High School District, students will
take tests during the same window for
all 11th-graders. Scientific samples
will be taken from Carlmont and
Menlo-Atherton high schools as well
as 10th-graders at Redwood and ninth-
graders at Sequoia high schools.
Brandon Lee, director of research
and assessment for the district, said
the field tests are a way for the district
to test technology readiness, such as
whether its Wi-Fi can withstand every-
body being on it at one time. The
director of technology has done a
good job to make sure the infrastruc-
ture is strong, he added.
“We’re trying to make sure every-
body has a chance to see what’s about
to come,” he said. “We’re testing how
kids do on online testing. … We’re
trying to see if they can handle a lap-
top. We had to buy a lot of new lap-
tops and earphones because the test-
ing is not just reading and bubbling in
answers, sometimes you click on a
video and have to listen and answer. ”
Additionally, calculators are embed-
ded into the math portion of the exam
and the district is trying to make sure
students can navigate that, Lee said.
“The logging in procedure is so dif-
ferent,” he said. “Instead of passing
out test booklets, the teacher has to
log into the system, students have to
log in with their first name and
statewide identifier. We’re trying to
make sure teachers are prepared for
things like pausing tests and having
to log back in. What happens when
you’ve been away too long to the test
and it kicked you out. The way which
questions are asked are not just A, B,
C, D now.”
In the South San Francisco Unified
School District, using and navigating
the computer tools and keyboard may
also present a challenge for its
younger students, said Shawnterra
Moore, assistant superintendent of
educational services and categorical
programs. All schools in the South
San Francisco Unified School District
will also participate in the field test-
ing, with the exception of the contin-
uation high school Baden, she said.
“It’s a new process for facilitating
these assessments with our students
so that can create challenges for our
test examiners and proctors who
aren’t used to supporting students
with online user names, passwords,
etc.,” she wrote in an email. “We hope
to learn more about our technology
capabilities. We also hope to learn
what needs our students have around
technology that will inform our plan-
ning for next year. Lastly, we hope to
provide our students and teachers with
this new online testing experience so
it will help to prepare us for next
year’s instruction that needs to shift
but also to give our students exposure
about what’s coming so they can also
make mental shifts about their more
active role in the learning process.”
The Redwood City Elementary
School District is also preparing for
the field tests. It will also begin test-
ing April 7. John Baker, deputy super-
intendent of curriculum and instruc-
tion, said the technological infra-
structure is in place for half its
schools. Students will get the oppor-
tunity to see how to maneuver the
mouse. The district has iPads and
Chromebooks.
“A problematic piece for us in tech-
nology is trying to make sure we have
enough devices to make sure we can
handle the tests. It’s a way to figure out
if we’re set for devices. … The number
one thing is to get a little peek at the
questions and see the types of skills
students will need when answering
questions. … We don’t have a device
for every child in this district — we
have devices being moved around
from school to school. There’s little
things people don’t think about that
didn’t exist under the STAR tests.”
Meanwhile, teachers are also work-
ing to adjust to the new standards and
tests. Randi Lucas teaches fourth- and
fifth-grades at Henry Ford Elementary
School in Redwood City and said she’s
been putting in a lot more hours for
new curriculum.
“Prepping all schools to do tests on
computers will be a huge challenge,”
she said. “The publishers haven’t had
time to get teacher approved materials
yet. It’s different from what we’ve
been doing the last few years and more
geared toward problem solving, not
just knowing concepts, but applying
them.”

MONDAY, MARCH 10, 2014
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your home and family
life should be your priority today. Do what you can to
improve important relationships. You could run into
trouble if important details escape your notice.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You will have difficulty
concentrating on your career if there are unresolved
issues at home. Once your mind is clear of domestic
problems, you can dedicate yourself to your work.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — There are people in
your circle who claim that they can assist you with
important projects. Some will be a great help, and
some will be more of a hindrance. Choose your
allies carefully.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Direct your focus toward
money matters. Consider asking for a raise, or find a
way to supplement your income with a part-time job.
Reducing financial stress will improve your outlook.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You will have a
tendency to overreact. If you remain levelheaded, your
plans can be turned into reality. Make the necessary
effort to keep your emotions in check today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t be shy about
presenting your ideas. A little self-promotion is
necessary if you want to be successful. Determine who
your allies are, and share your thoughts with them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Think carefully before
making any decisions. You will end up in a much
better position if you sit back and wait for others to
make the first move.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t be reluctant to
offer help to a close friend. The reassurance you give
him or her will make a difference to your relationship.
Loyalty will win you favors and support. Share
something with people you care about.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Let your creativity
and imagination drive you today. You should finish
projects that you’ve been putting off. Feelings of
accomplishment will lead to new beginnings and
opportunities.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You may think
that someone you relied on has turned out to be
untrustworthy. Although you feel hurt, make sure to
get your facts straight before making any accusations.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you need to boost
your credentials, do so. Seeking out a challenging new
position will motivate you. Do your research and learn
the skills required to help you achieve your goal.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — It’s a good day to
get in touch with old friends. You will find that you
all still have plenty in common. Sharing your views
will give you a much greater perspective regarding
a certain situation.

There Is
New Hope!
A Health Center
Dedicated to
Severe Disc
Conditions
If you suffer with lower back,
neck, or leg pain, we invite you to try
our non surgical solution. The pain
from degenerating and bulging discs
affects everything that you do, from
work, to play, and ultimately your
quality of life. At Crossroads Heath
Center, we have created an entire
facility dedicated to patients with
severe disc conditions that have not
responded to traditional care. Our
revolutionary, Crossroads Method,
provides a very high success rate to
patients with serious back, neck,
leg and arm pain – even when all
else has failed. This FDA cleared;
non-surgical treatment allows us
to rehabilitate your herniated or
degenerative disc(s) by reversing
internal pressure and enabling your
disc(s) to heal from the inside out.
We succeed where other treatments
have failed – by removing the
pressure that is causing pain to
your disc(s) and nerves – without
drugs, injections, invasive surgery or
harmful side effects.
The only office to have
“The Crossroads Method”
This method which includes
computerized true disc
decompression is considered by
many doctors to be the most
advanced and successful non-
invasive treatment of serious back,
neck, leg or arm pain.
This procedure allows for a much
higher success rate by increasing
hydration of your discs, fexibility,
relaxation of muscles and ligaments
along with improving muscle and
core strength, balance and posture.
This results in a more effective and
lasting solution to your pain. There
are no side effects and no recovery
time is required.
This gentle and relaxing treatment
has proven to be effective… even
when drugs, epidurals, traditional
chiropractic, physical therapy
and surgery have failed… The
Crossroads Method has shown
dramatic results.
Patient Testimonials
During the 1 1/2 years of having
constant daily lower back pain and
spasms, I took anti-infammatory
and pain medication, but nothing
helped lessen the pain. When an MRI
showed that I had two degenerative
discs, I went through a series of
lumbar epidural injections without
success. The only thing that made
the pain and spasms go away was
Spinal Decompression treatments at
Crossroads Health Center. Four years
later and I am still pain-free!
Lisa K. San Jose, 2013
I came in to Dr. Ferrigno for
lower back pain. It’s a problem
that I have had for about 10 to
15 years. I tried everything from
physiatrists, medical doctors,
doctor of osteopathy, chiropractic,
acupuncture, pain medications,
epidural injections and everything
was a temporary fx. I decided to try
the DRX therapy and I’ve gone from
an average pain level between 5/7
out of 10 all the way down to a pain
level of 1 to 2 pretty consistently.
The DRX was defnitely the only
thing that has made me feel better.
Brian G. Los Gatos CA. 2013
How Will I Know If I Qualify
for Treatment?
When you come in for a
complimentary consultation we will
ask a series of questions and perform
a comprehensive examination to
determine exactly where the pain is
coming from. If x-rays are necessary,
we can take them in our offce. Once
we determine the cause of your
pain we will let you know if we can
help you and if you qualify for our
treatment protocol.
If we don’t feel like we can help we
will refer you to someone who can.
