smoking ban
By Michelle Durand
Smoking inside unincorporated
county apartments and condomini-
ums could become a thing of the
past under a possible prohibition
being studied by the Board of
Supervisors Tuesday.
Supervisor Carole Groom, one
of the possible bans proponents,
wants the public to turn out at
Tuesdays meeting to support the
idea of tamping down smoking
and its associated health hazards.
I hope that the people who
come will say yes, we approve of
this. Yes, this is a good thing to
do, said Groom. Second-hand
smoke is far more dangerous than
we once thought.
The proposal would only affect
multi-unit housing in the countys
unincorporated areas which Groom
said includes
1,069 apart-
ments. The ordi-
nance would
prohibit smok-
ing within 30
feet of the com-
plexes, includ-
ing decks,
patios and other
common areas.
The ban would not affect motels,
hotels, detached single-family
homes or in-law units.
The ban on smoking within
units as well as outside is neces-
sary because smoke travels
through windows and vents and up
walls, she said.
Groom took up the idea and
enlisted fellow Supervisor
Adrienne Tissier at the request of

Pacic Gas & Electric will per-
form upgrades on a controversial
San Carlos pipeline later this year
rather than waiting two years for
its regularly scheduled work,
according to the city manager.
Were pleased with that. It
doesnt go so
far as solving
our back and
forth on what
the appropriate
pressure is but
were really
happy this is
happening this
year, said City
Manager Jeff Maltbie.
The work involves replacing a
bend and associated piping on
Line 147 located near Edmonds
Road in Redwood City. The
replacement will accommodate the
tool used for internal inspections
of Line 147s entire length.
Until the work is complete and
the in-line inspections performed,
Maltbie said PG&E has agreed to
the citys request for extra moni-
toring of the line to make sure
there are no leaks and everything
is operating safely.
Were moving forward in a pos-
itive way at this point, Maltbie
The city and PG&E are jointly
sending a letter to customers alert-
ing them to the upcoming work
and inviting them to an April 16
community meeting. On Monday
night, Maltbie will ask the City
Council to approve the letter by

Students at Bayside STEM Academy in San Mateo participate in the after-school tutoring program.
By Angela Swartz
The Bayside STEM Academys
library is so dead quiet Mondays
and Thursdays after school its
almost hard to tell its full of stu-
dious middle schoolers.
Twice a week from 2:45 p.m.-
4:30 p.m., students attend the
after-school tutoring program
sponsored by the San Mateo
Rotary Club. For about ve years,
students have brought assign-
ments, while former Bayside stu-
dents, Rotary volunteers and
teachers have given them a hand
with the work.
Theres a special connection
because we (the tutors) went here,
said tutor Tara Arcia, now a fresh-
man at Aragon High School.
Were so close in age and know
how it was before.
Tutors are often part of the San
Mateo Academic Rotary Team, or
SMART, a scholarship program
that gives low-income, at-risk
eighth-grade students with decent
academic success $500 when they
graduate high school and $100 a
year if they complete goals set at
the beginning of each school year.
Rotary funds about $25,000 annu-
ally for SMART. Tutors are paid
$10 an hour.
Regeneration is a good model
for supporting students, said
Principal Jeanne Elliott.
Everybodys working together
and thats how its supposed to
work in a perfect world, she said.
Its not just an academic building
block. Confidence helps shape
Students being tutored are usual-
ly those who may not be getting
their homework done and there are
almost 50 students, selected by
teachers, a year who participate in
the program. Others are just look-
ing for a quiet place to work.
Rotarians involved in the pro-
gram say it helps alleviate some of
the inequities felt between the
west and east sides of San Mateo.
Program helps level playing field
Rotary Club runs after-school tutoring at Bayside
The 7-Eleven just south of the
Burlingame border that neighbors
protested and brought the city of
San Mateo to court is ofcially
closing its doors at the end of this
month, while the city will pay the
convenience store and property
owners $150,000.
The city signed an agreement for
closure of the 501 N. San Mateo
Drive store and 7-Eleven needs to
vacate the location by the end of
this month, according to the terms
of the settlement agreement. The
$150,000 will be split between
the property owner Portfolio
Development Partners and 7-
Eleven and, in exchange, all the
lawsuits will be dismissed, said
City Attorney Shawn Mason.
In January, the city found itself
in front of a Superior Court judge
who ruled the council did act
appropriately when it determined
the store was illegally operating
in a residential zone and asked it to

San Carlos resident Lisa Santoro became
the first Peninsula leader of Californias
chapter of the American Massage Therapy
Association in a number of years when she
was named its president in early March.
Santoro, 52, is originally from
Belmont, Mass., and began her work as a
massage therapist after surviving Hodgkin
lymphoma at age 26. She had gone to a
chiropractor and gotten a massage during
her recovery.
It made such an impact on me, she said.
I was looking to change my life and want-
ed to give back. I felt like Id been given so
She decided to change gears from being a
music promoter and going to art school to
working toward becoming a massage thera-
pist. Now, she specializes in doing mas-
sages for cancer patients or cancer sur-
vivors. Practicing for a number of years,
she moved to California two years ago
when her husband got a job in Silicon
Valley. Upon moving to the state, she did
volunteer work for the massage associa-
tion to get to know her colleagues in the
area. Then came the election as its state
I spoke from the heart [during the con-
ference at which I was elected], said
Santoro, who is married with two teenage
sons. I talked about things that are impor-
tant to me and where I envision California
going. People heard what I said and
Santoros goals are threefold. First, she
wants to get more information to massage
therapists to educate them on marketing
and business skills, along with educating
them on different areas they can specialize
in for work. She also wants to see member-
ship rise, as for the past
six or seven years its
been at 3,600 members.
She wants it to get to
4, 000.
I want to make sure
were all at the table,
she said. Giving our
Her third goal is to
bring the number of
hours required to become a massage thera-
pist up from 250 to 500, the current
national standard. She herself has 5,000
hours of training over her 20-year career
and believes the training is essential to be
a good massage therapist.
She would also like to see the California
Massage Therapy Councils California
Certification law renewed. This law helps
vet massage therapists with fingerprinting
and background checks. It also allows ther-
apists to practice in different cities without
having to seek certification in each city.
There are certain misconceptions the
general public does have about massages.
Alot of people think a massage is a lux-
ury, but its a necessity, she said. More
people are looking to non-surgical
approaches like physical therapists and
massage therapists.
People also think the massage should
hurt, but this isnt always the case, she
said. There are misconceptions about mas-
sage therapists themselves too, she added.
A lot of people dont realize how much
training it takes, said Santoro, who
founded the massage program for the
University Health Services of Harvard
University. Its not a hobby. You have
to understand all the layers of how the body
More doctors are also referring their
patients for massages to treat headaches,
back pain and other issues. She herself

help with the scar tissue as a result of her
The massage industry has changed a lot
over the 20 years shes been practicing.
Franchises are the number one thing
coming into our profession, Santoro said.
I personally think they do a wonderful
service. They employee massage thera-
pists, giving them 401(k)s and sick days.
It gives them a place to get their hands on
a lot of people.
Santoro is keeping busy too. Not only is
she working on the general education por-
tion of a bachelors degree at Foothill
College, she also plans to open a nonprof-
it in the fall called the Thriving Survival
Center thats exclusively for people going
through cancer and cancer survivors. The
center will offer massages, yoga, medita-
tion and other forms of movement. There
will be reduced prices and some free pro-
To those who are money strapped, she
recommends going to the National
Holistic Clinic of therapy schools, with
locations that include San Jose,
Emeryville and San Francisco. The student
clinic offers more affordable massages by
students who already have lots of training
and are supervised, she said. Additionally,
De Anza College has a massage clinic with
reduced massage prices.

ARedwood City man accused of widespread
elder abuse by defrauding people with his
tales of domestic and eco-
nomic woes was sen-
tenced Friday to three
years in prison.
The term imposed on
James Keeton, 63, was
predicated in part on how
much he could pay of
$30,000 in restitution.
Keeton pleaded no con-
test in December to six
counts of elder abuse and two counts of
felony fraud. He has credit of 741 days
against his term earned while in custody on
$250,000 bail.
Keeton was originally charged with
seven counts of fraud and six counts of
elder abuse linked to alleged incidents
between 2008 and 2010.
Prosecutors say Keeton swindled more than
$270,000 total from multiple people.
Keeton reportedly befriended people between
the ages of 51 and 88 through the San Mateo
Horsemans Association and St. Pius Parish
in Redwood City. After gaining their trust, he
would ask for loans between $3,000 and
$23,650 because he said his wife had recent-
ly miscarried twins and they were going to
lose their house to foreclosure. Keeton prom-
ised to repay the money with a large inheri-
tance tied up in litigation in New York but
never did and cut off communication after,
according to the District Attorneys Ofce.
Keeton was arrested in March 2013.

San Mateo County court workers will get
a 2 percent pay increase for the first time in
more than five years and a $2,000 one-time
payment under an agreement reached with
the Service Employees International
The contract announced Friday allows for
increasing staffing as funds are restored
and reducing pension benefit costs.
John Fitton, San Mateo County Court
executive officer, called the modest wage
increase both overdue and well-deserved
given our employees productivity in
recent years with our limited staffing.
A more than $1 billion cut of state trial
funding over the past
five years trickled down
to local courts including
San Mateo which slashed
more than 30 percent of
its workforce, closed four
courtrooms, laid off 57
percent of its commis-
sioners and reduced serv-
ice hours.
The agreement with
SEIU Local 521 also includes a $2,000
one-time equity payment to current work-
ers represented by the union, will fill
existing vacancies as state funding is
available and keep long-term pension lia-
bility in check by instituting defined con-
tribution benefits.
While Fitton lauded the workforce for
weathering a challenging period, he said in
a prepared statement that the partial
restoration of state funding doesnt mean
the courts and those served by it are

Three children found abused,
malnourished in squalid home
Two women were arrested last week after
three children were allegedly found starving
and abused with one chained to the oor in a
home near the Salinas border, Monterey
County sheriffs ofcials said.
Two boys and a girl were rescued last Friday
afternoon from a house in the rst block of
Russell Road after authorities were alerted to
possible neglect at the home, sheriffs of-
cials said.
Investigators said they had found the house
cluttered and dirty with little food available.
The children were allegedly malnourished
and had signs of physical and emotional
abuse. The girl had been chained to the oor,
sheriffs ofcial said.
One of the children was hospitalized and
the other two were taken into protective cus-
tody by Child Protective Services.
Eraca Craig, 31, and Christian Deanda, 44,
who both live at the home, were arrested on
several child abuse charges, according to
sheriffs ofcials.
Lawyer: Vet reaches
$4.5M settlement with Oakland
An Iraq War veteran whose skull was frac-
tured during an Occupy Oakland protest when
he was hit by a beanbag round red by police
has reached a $4.5 million agreement to set-
tle a federal lawsuit with the city of Oakland,
his lawyers and city ofcials announced
Scott Olsen, 26, sued the city in 2012 for
medical expenses and injuries that also
included a fractured vertebrae and hemorrhag-
ing of the brain. Olsen was among more than
1,000 demonstrators protesting the police
clearing of an Occupy Oakland encampment
when struck by a beanbag red by an ofcer
outside City Hall on Oct. 25, 2011.
Olsen, who served two tours of duty as a
U.S. Marine in Iraq, suffered permanent brain
injuries and has not been able to return to his
career as a computer systems administrator,
his attorney Rachel Lederman said Friday.

RV thief takes plea deal
for low-speed joyride
A San Diego woman who stole an RV in San Mateo in
November and led sheriffs deputies on a slow-speed chase
through Half Moon Bay while giving the
peace sign out a window pleaded no con-
test to misdemeanor vehicle theft in
return for time served.
Carly Janine Gutierrez, 32, took the
deal to avoid trial on felony counts of
commercial burglary, vehicle theft and
reckless driving. She received 17 days
jail with equal credit and two years proba-
Mid-day Nov. 13, Gutierrez walked
into the administrative ofce at Condon and Sons Lumber
Yard and tried to fraudulently rent an RV. When denied,
Gutierrez reportedly went outside, climbed into an RVworth
more than $25,000 and drove away.
San Mateo police put out a countywide bulletin and a sher-
iffs deputy spotted the stolen RV near State Route 92 and
Main Street in Half Moon Bay. Gutierrez allegedly ignored
the deputys lights and siren, driving away through stop
signs at speeds between 25 mph and 35 mph with her out-
reached arm ashing the sign until the RV stopped near
Kelly Avenue.
Gutierrez was allegedly reported missing by friends the
previous week.

Black preschoolers more
likely to face suspension
WASHINGTON Black students are more
likely to be suspended from U.S. public
schools even as tiny preschoolers.
The racial disparities in American educa-
tion, from access to high-level classes and
experienced teachers to discipline, were
highlighted in a report released Friday by
the Education Departments civil rights arm.
The suspensions and disparities
begin at the earliest grades.
Black children represent about 18 percent
of children in preschool programs in
schools, but they make up almost half of the
preschoolers suspended more than once, the
report said. Six percent of the nations dis-
tricts with preschools reported suspending
at least one preschool child.

Judge strikes down
Michigans ban on gay marriage
DETROIT Michigans ban on gay marriage is unconsti-
tutional, a federal judge said Friday, striking down a law that
was widely embraced by voters a decade ago in the latest in a
series of similar decisions across the country.
But unlike cases in other states, U.S. District Judge
Bernard Friedman did not suspend his decision while the
Michigan attorney general pursues an appeal. That means
clerks could start issuing licenses Monday unless a higher
court intervenes.
Friedman released his 31-page ruling exactly two weeks
after a rare trial that mostly focused on the impact of same-
sex parenting on children. The challenge was brought by
two Detroit-area nurses originally seeking to overturn
Michigans ban on joint adoptions by gay couples.
The judge noted that supporters of same-sex marriage
believe the Michigan ban was at least partly the result of ani-
mosity toward gays and lesbians.
Many Michigan residents have religious convictions
whose principles govern the conduct of their daily lives and
inform their own viewpoints about marriage, Friedman
said. Nonetheless, these views cannot strip other citizens
of the guarantees of equal protection under the law.
Seventeen states and the District of Columbia issue licens-
es for same-sex marriage. Since December, bans on gay mar-
riage have been overturned in Texas, Utah, Oklahoma and
Virginia, but appeals have put those cases on hold.
Four men die in New Jersey shore motel fire
POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. A re early Friday
destroyed a New Jersey shore motel that was housing people
displaced by Superstorm Sandy, killing four people and
injuring eight, authorities said.
The blaze erupted at the wooden Mariners Cove Motor Inn
in this popular summer resort town at around 5:30 a.m., and
ames were shooting out the building by the time reght-
ers arrived. At least one person leaped from a second-oor
window to escape.
Three people were injured critically. Other injuries includ-
ed broken bones.
The discovery of a fourth victim was announced Friday
afternoon just before reghters removed the body on a
stretcher. Authorities said all remaining occupants had been
accounted for after hours of visiting hospitals, motels and
other locations to track down other survivors.
The victims were identied as male adults, but the prosecu-
tors ofce said no positive identications had been made
and the cause of the blaze was unknown.
After the bodies were slid on stretchers down ladders to the
ground, investigators brought out dogs specially trained to
react to the presence of gasoline or other petroleum products
that might have been used to start or accelerate a re.

ANKARA, Turkey Turkeys attempt
to block access to Twitter appeared to
backre on Friday with many tech-
savvy users circumventing the ban and
suspicions growing that the prime
minister was using court orders to sup-
press corruption allegations against
him and his government.
Turkeys telecommunications author-
ity said it had blocked access to the
social media network hours after Prime
Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan threat-
ened to rip out the roots of the web-
site. Tweets have proliferated with
links to recordings that appear to
incriminate him and other top ofcials
in corruption.
Lutfi Elvan, Turkeys minister in
charge of transport and communica-
tions, said Turkey was merely obeying
court orders although an Istanbul
lawyers group argued the court deci-
sions were about blocking access to
parts of websites deemed to be violat-
ing privacy not entire websites.
Turkey in the past has blocked access
to YouTube, but this is the rst ban on
Twitter, which is hugely popular in the
country to the point where Turkish
hashtags routinely appear in global
trends. The social network was instru-
mental in organizing ash protests
against the government last year.
By midday Friday, tweets were con-
tinuing unabated as users swapped
instructions online on how to change
settings. One enterprising user spread
the word by defacing Turkish election
posters with instructions on beating
President Abdullah Gul was among
those who circumvented the order,
which he contested in a series of
tweets. Gul, once a political ally of
Erdogan, has spoken out against
Internet censorship in the past,
although last month he approved gov-
ernment moves to tighten controls
over the Internet.

Foreign adoptions by Americans decline sharply
NEWYORK The number of foreign children adopted by
U.S. parents plunged by 18 percent last year to the lowest
level since 1992, due in part to Russias ban on adoptions
by Americans. Adoptions from South Korea and Ethiopia
also dropped sharply.
Figures released Friday by the U.S. State Department for
the 2013 scal year showed 7,094 adoptions from abroad,
down from 8,668 in 2012 and down about 69 percent from
the high of 22,884 in 2004. The number has dropped every
year since then.
As usual, China accounted for the most children adopted
in the U.S. But its total of 2,306 was far below the peak of
7,903 in 2005.
Ethiopia was second at 993, a marked decline from 1,568
adoptions in 2012. Ethiopian authorities have been trying
to place more abandoned children with relatives or foster
families, and have intensied scrutiny of orphanages to
ensure that children placed for adoption are not part of any
improper scheme.
Russia had been No. 3 on the list in 2012, with 748 of its
children adopted by Americans. But that number dropped to
250 for 2013, representing adoptions completed before
Russias ban took effect.
The ban served as retaliation for a U.S. law targeting
alleged Russian human-rights violators. It also reected
resentment over the 60,000 Russian children adopted by
Americans in the past two decades, about 20 of whom died
from abuse, neglect or other causes while in the care of their
adoptive parents.
Lawmakers vow ban on police sex with prostitutes
HONOLULU Hawaii lawmakers on Friday vowed to
restore a line in a bill that would make it illegal for police
to have sex with prostitutes.
Currently in Hawaii, police working within the scope of
duty are exempt from all prostitution laws. Aline in House
Bill 1926 would have removed that exemption if ofcers
have sex with prostitutes, but it was removed when
Honolulu police told lawmakers that exemption was an
important part of ghting crime.
Advocates and law enforcement experts found that argu-
ment implausible. After many of them testied to the Senate
Judiciary Committee and with no police in attendance
lawmakers were inclined to agree.
The committee deferred decision on the large crime bill by
one week. Committee Chairman Clayton Hee, a Democrat
representing Kaneohe and Kaaawa, said its next version
would once again outlaw police from having sex with pros-
I will tell you that without question I cant imagine
police ofcers being exempt from the law, he said. To
condone police officers sexual penetration in making
arrests is simply nonsensical to me. And I would note that
HPDs absence is deafening.
Police phone-tracking contracts often kept secret
WASHINGTON Police across the country may be inter-
cepting phone calls or text messages to nd suspects using
a technology tool known as Stingray. But theyre refusing
to turn over details about its use or heavily censoring les
when they do.
Police say Stingray, a suitcase-sized device that pretends
its a cell tower, is useful for catching criminals, but thats
about all theyll say.
For example, they wont disclose details about contracts
with the devices manufacturer, Harris Corp., insisting they
are protecting both police tactics and commercial secrets.
The secrecy at times imposed by non-disclosure agree-
ments signed by police is pitting obligations under pri-
vate contracts against government transparency laws.

BRUSSELS Two almost simultaneous
signatures Friday on opposite sides of
Europe deepened the divide between East and
West, as Russia formally annexed Crimea and
the European Union pulled Ukraine closer
into its orbit.
In this new post-Cold War order, as the
Ukrainian prime minister called it, besieged
Ukrainian troops on the Crimean Peninsula
faced a critical choice: leave, join the
Russian military or demobilize. Ukraine was
working on evacuating its outnumbered
troops in Crimea, but some said they were
still awaiting orders.
With fears running high of clashes
between the two sides or a grab by Moscow
for more of Ukraine, the chief of the U.N.
came to the capital city Kiev and urged calm
all around.
All eyes were on Russian President
Vladimir Putin, as they have been ever since
pro-Western protests drove out Ukraines
president a month ago, angering Russia and
plunging Europe into its worst crisis in a
Putin sounded a conciliatory note Friday,
almost joking about U.S. and EU sanctions
squeezing his inner circle and saying he saw
no reason to retaliate. But his government
later warned of further action.
Russias troubled economic outlook may
drive its decisions as much as any outside
military threat. Stocks sank further, and a
possible downgrade of Russias credit rating
loomed. Visa and MasterCard stopped serv-
ing two Russian banks, and Russia conceded
it may scrap plans to tap international mar-
kets for money this year.
Despite those clouds, Putin painted
Fridays events in victorious colors, and re-
works burst over Moscow and Crimea on his
orders, in a spectacle reminiscent of the cel-
ebrations held when Soviet troops drove the
Nazis from occupied cities in World War II.

E-cigarettes need regulation
The makers and vendors of e-ciga-
rettes continue to make unfounded
claims about their products safety,
often using questionable studies that
have neither been conducted by the
FDAnor peer-reviewed for publica-
tion in reputable medical journals.
The public is asked to trust that e-cig-
arettes are safe based on the word of
the big tobacco companies that prot
from selling them. I do not believe
that the public should be exposed to
the health hazards posed by e-ciga-
rettes when there is no evidence that
they are truly safe.
With the growing popularity of e-
cigarettes and their increasing usage
in public spaces, we must treat e-ciga-
rettes like regular cigarettes to pro-
tect businesses and the public.
Precautionary policies have already
been adopted by cities and towns
across the United States, including
the cities of Los Angeles, New York,
Chicago, Seattle and Boston as well
as Contra Costa County and the city
of Richmond in the Bay Area.
I support a common sense approach
to regulate the use of e-cigarettes in
the same manner as regular cigarettes.
This policy would prohibit the smok-
ing of e-cigarettes in the same public
places where smoking regular ciga-
rettes is prohibited. This means that
you can still smoke e-cigarettes in all
the places you can currently smoke

Letters to the editor
Los Angeles Times
lzheimers disease and other
dementias not only destroy
the lives of those who suffer
from them but take a devastating toll
on family caregivers and on those
who must pay the cost of care. An
estimated 5 million people in the
United States suffer from Alzheimers .
But that number will increase expo-
nentially in the years ahead because
of what Robin Barr, a senior ofcial
at the National Institute on Aging,
calls an aging tsunami. Ahighly
cited published research analysis esti-
mates that the number of people with
Alzheimers around the world will
jump from 36 million today to 115
million by 2050.
Arecent study in the journal
Neurology estimated that the Centers
for Disease Control and Preventions
gure on deaths attributable to
Alzheimers in 2010 83,494 in the
U.S. is a fraction of the true num-
ber, which it estimated at more than
500,000. Ofcials at the CDC admit
that the agencys number is signi-
cantly low.
Just as alarming is this: Astudy by
researchers at Rand Corp. and other
institutions calculated that the direct
cost of care for people with
Alzheimers and other dementia in
2010 was $109 billion. In compari-
son, health care costs for people with
heart disease was $102 billion; for
people with cancer, it was $77 bil-
lion. Yet cancer research will be allo-
cated an estimated $5.4 billion this
year in federal funds, and heart disease
will get $1.2 billion while
research on Alzheimers and other
dementias comes in at only a fraction
of that, at $666 million.
Its time to substantially increase
that budget.
Theres no question that the federal
government has focused more
intensely on research into
Alzheimers and other types of
dementia in the last few years. The
National Alzheimers Project Act,
signed into law in 2011, set up a
national plan to aggressively develop
new treatments for these devastating
diseases. Toward that end, research on
Alzheimers and related dementias was
boosted with an additional $100 mil-
lion in federal funds in the last year.
But to effectively tackle this dis-
ease over the next decade, more fund-
ing is required. Research stands at a
promising new threshold. As National
Institutes of Health Director Francis
Collins said in an appearance before a
Senate subcommittee in February,
research has shifted in recent years,
from an emphasis on treatment of
individuals with symptomatic disease
to primary prevention among individ-
uals at risk.
More money can fund more clinical
trials. And there are signicant num-
bers of worthy grant applications at
the National Institute on Aging that
have not yet been funded, according
to Barr.
The U.S. must do what it can to
ght this hideous disease before it
consumes millions more people and
billions more dollars.
The need for more Alzheimers research Under the radar
spent last weekend at the Burlingame Hyatt Regency
hotel, not as a guest but as a participant in some-
thing ying under the radar of most Californians.
The California Republican Party held its semiannual con-
vention with the theme Rebuild Renew Reclaim and by
all accounts it is doing just that.
Most people in San Mateo County might nd that hard
to believe, since Republicans cannot claim a single elect-
ed ofcial in partisan ofces within the county. However,
at the same time, Republicans are surging in the state and
across the country. Many pundits, including Chris
Matthews of MSNBC, concede that this fall Republicans
are poised to take control of the U.S. Senate as well as
increase their majorities in the House of Representatives
and in state legislatures across the country.
And right here in California, recent special elections
have shown surprising strength for a party proclaimed to
be on life support. Last month, Kevin Faulcouner won as
mayor of San Diego in a special election held in the wake
of the resignation of Democrat
Bob Filthy Filner. The almost
10-point victory came in city
where President Obama won by
25 points and Democrats hold a
13-point lead over Republicans
in registration.
Last year, Hanford farmer
Andy Vidak won a special elec-
tion for state Senate with nearly
52 percent of the vote, in a dis-
trict that is both majority
Democratic and majority
Hispanic. In addition, in
November, Republican Susan
Shelly lost a special election
for the Assembly by only 329 votes in a heavily
Democratic district in the San Fernando Valley.
Moreover, the Los Angeles Times reports that four
California Democratic freshmen representatives are endan-
gered this fall, including districts in the San Diego, San
Bernardino, Ventura and Sacramento areas.
Delegates and attendees at the convention reveled in the
newfound energy and excitement. Hordes of College and
Young Republicans roamed the convention oor, and
danced the night away in former Treasury ofcial and
gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkaris hospitality suite.
Older delegates gathered to hear Venezuelan actress Maria
Conchita Alonso sing in support of candidate
Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, who is also running for
But the true hot spot was the luau-themed party hosted
by the Log Cabin Republican Club, the LGBTQ volunteer
arm of the Republican Party. Delegates of all stripes were
sporting leis from the event, and it certainly generated a
buzz among the party faithful.
It wasnt all partying and sloganeering, as real work
was done too. The Hispanic forum covered by Univision
and sponsored by GROWElect, attracted a large, standing
room only crowd. There delegates, and a large contingent
of Hispanic high school students, heard from Hispanic
ofce holders and candidates about how their message of
opportunity, education and empowerment resonates with
Hispanic voters.
Across the hall, a high-tech event showcased 11 start-
ups pitching the newest methods for identifying, contact-
ing, converting and turning out voters. Many of these
products were showcased in the recent Republican victory
in the congressional special election in Florida. There,
the Republican National Committee used volunteer-pow-
ered, data-centric voter contact efforts (many developed
here in San Mateo County) to turn out voters. These
efforts were just the rst step, more predictive analytics,
micro-targeting and real-time data analysis tools will be
rolled out later this year.
The convention highlighted the diversity of the GOP.
As RNC Chairman Reince Priebus made clear in his dinner
remarks, more than 60 million people voted Republican
in 2012. Its doubtful they agree on many things. Proving
the point, California Republican candidates and delegates
included pro-lifers and pro-choicers, as well as those pro-
marriage equality and those pro-traditional marriage.
For San Mateo County voters, it all may be a bit much
to take in. We havent had a Republican elected ofcial in
a while, so the prospects for Republican victories up and
down the state may have some progressive-liberals in
denial. As Bob Dylan sang, And something is happening
here, But you dont know what it is, Do you, Mister
Its no secret that the Republican Party in California fell
on hard times while ourishing in the rest of the country.
Nevertheless, with bold new leadership, the California
GOP is on a mission to Rebuild Renew Reclaim.
Something is denitely happening here the partys
rebirth wont be under the radar for very much longer.

NEWYORK An early surge on the
stock market evaporated Friday, as
health care stocks tugged major index-
es down.
Biotech companies were especially
hard-hit after U.S. lawmakers ques-
tioned the pricing of a Hepatitis C drug
made by Gilead Sciences.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
raced past an all-time high in early
trading, then lost steam in the after-
noon. It still nished with a solid
weekly gain, up 1.4 percent.
It might sound surprising that the
stock market is trading near an all-
time high with all the uncertainty sur-
rounding Chinas slowing growth and
simmering tensions between Russia
and the West. Last week, those con-
cerns were credited with knocking the
S&P 500 index down 1.9 percent, its
worst weekly loss in nearly two
This week investors seemed to return
their focus to the basics.
There are always bad things going
on in the world, but they dont all mat-
ter to the ultimate direction of mar-
kets, said Douglas Coti, chief market
strategist at ING U.S. Investment
Management. The only thing that
matters is the following: corporate
earnings, manufacturing and the con-
sumer. And theyve all been solid.
The S&P500 slipped 5.49 points, or
0.3 percent, to close at 1,866.52
Friday. It traded as high as 1,882 earli-
er in the day, four points above its
record high reached March 7.
The Dow Jones industrial average
lost 28.28 points, or 0.2 percent, to
16, 302. 70. The Nasdaq composite
dropped 42.50 points, or 1 percent, to
Health care stocks fell the most in
the S&P 500 index. Gilead lost $3.46,
or 5 percent, to $72.07. Biogen Idec
fell $28.51, or 8 percent, to $318.53.
Nike fell after warning that a
stronger U.S. dollar will dampen its
results this quarter. Still, strong
demand for its shoes and apparel
ahead of the World Cup in June helped
it beat analysts earnings expecta-
tions in the previous quarter, the
company said late Thursday. Nike,
one of the 30 stocks in the Dow, lost
$4.06, or 5 percent, to $75.21.
Earlier in the week, reports on manu-
facturing and housing sent the stock
market higher. The big stumble came
Wednesday, when the Federal Reserve
said it could start raising short-term
interest rates as soon as next year.
Traders drove down prices for gold,
government bonds and stocks in antic-
ipation of higher interest rates and
borrowing costs.
Those market jitters overshadowed
some good news, said Dan Veru, chief
investment ofcer of Palisade Capital
Management in Fort Lee, N.J.
If interest rates are going higher
its because the economy is doing bet-
ter, he said, and thats going to be a
good thing for corporate profits.
Whats so bad about that?
In other trading Friday, the yield on
the 10-year Treasury fell to 2.74 per-
cent. Crude oil rose 56 cents to close at
$99.46 a barrel. Gold gained $5.50 to
settle at $1,336 an ounce.

though unemployment ticked down to

The price of bacon is surging and the

Tigers win in final at-bat
By Nathan Mollat
As the Terra Nova baseball teams desig-
nated hitter, Steve Sagasty is expected to hit
the ball hard and far.
But in the bottom of the seventh inning
of a 4-4 tie with visiting Menlo School,
Sagastys hit didnt even leave the ineld.
What the ball lack in velocity, however,
was made up with placement. Sagastys cue
shot to the hole between rst and second
base was placed perfectly enough that it
enabled him to reach rst safely and allowed
Mitchel Peterson to score from second to
give the Tigers an improbable 5-4 victory
over the Knights.
Weve been playing so bad. We needed
that (win) bad, said Terra Nova manager
Joey Gentile. We havent had any clutch
hits (so far this season).
The win was especially important for Terra
Nova (1-1 PAL Bay, 3-4 overall), consider-
ing the Tigers were coming off a 4-0 shutout
loss to Sacred Heart Prep Thursday.
Hopefully, this turns [our season]
around, Gentile said.
The nal inning saw a huge momentum
swing from Menlos dugout along the third-
base line to the rst-base line dugout of
Terra Nova in just a matter of minutes.
Trailing 3-1 going into their nal at-bat,
the Knights struck for three runs to take a 4-
3 lead, only to see the Tigers score twice in
their nal at-bat in the bottom of the frame.
We make a couple plays we win the
game, said Menlo manager Craig Schoof.
We had a chance to do things. Thats the
advantage of being the home team.
Terra Novas No. 9 hitter, Jason
Marinelli, started the game-winning rally
by drawing a walk to lead off the bottom of
the seventh. Peterson came to the plate and
put down a sacrice bunt, but the catchers
throw to rst was wild, enabling Marinelli
to move to third.
Following a popout, Jacob Martinez came
up and hit a y ball to center eld. It was
deep enough to get Marinelli home and,

pitchers duel for the ages in the
storied baseball rivalry between
Serra and St. Francis.
Padres right-hander Matt Blais
locked up with Lancers lefty John
Gavin for an absolute gem of a
baseball game, as St. Francis (1-1
WCAL, 6-1 overall) persevered in
extra innings for a 1-0 walk-off
Lancers pinch hitter Erik
Benedetti drew a bases-loaded walk
in the eighth inning to end it
against Blais, who notched the
complete game despite taking the
hard-luck loss for Serra (0-2, 5-4).
It was a great high school base-
ball game, Serra manager Craig
Gianinno said. It was maybe the
best pitching performance Ive
ever observed from a high-school
arm in Matt Blais. Hes as good as
it gets.
Blais who made just one start
last season after serving as Serras
closer for most of the year
allowed just two hits over eight
innings and took a no-hitter into
the fth. Even after surrendering a
one-out single to St. Francis sen-
ior Blake Billinger, Blais faced the
minimum through seven innings
by virtue of an inning-ending dou-
ble play in the second (following a
leadoff walk) and a pickoff of
Brandon Engel, who pinch ran for
Billinger in the fth.
It wasnt until the eighth inning
that Blais ran into trouble, walk-

SYDNEY After taking its opener to
Mexico, Japan and Puerto Rico over the
past 15 years, Major League Baseball is
expanding to a new territory this weekend:
Down Under.
When Arizonas Wade Miley throws the
rst pitch of the season against the Los
Angeles Dodgers on Saturday at the Sydney
Cricket Ground, the teams will be nearly
7,800 miles from Chase Field in Phoenix.
Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw cele-
brated his 26th birthday Wednesday by cud-
dling a kangaroo.
Its been a good experience for us and,
hopefully, we can get a couple of wins and
make it a great one, Kershaw said.
Opening day is always fun, no matter what
continent its on.
The games will be played at a revamped
cricket eld that seats 40,000-plus.
Some things will be familiar: Vin Scully
will be in the Dodgers broadcast booth for
the start of his 65th season, a run that dates
to the teams time in Brooklyn.
Plate umpire Tim Welke will shout Play
ball! not too different from a cricket
umpire yelling Play! before the rst ball
is bowled.
But there will not be stumps, the crick-
et term for when the umpire declares play
over for the day.
And no breaks for lunch or tea.
Baseball began its season at Monterrey,
Mexico, in 1999; at Tokyo in 2000, 2004,
2008 and 2012; and at San Juan, Puerto
Rico in 2001. This series marks the 100th
anniversary of an exhibition game between
the New York Giants and Chicago White
Sox at the same venue on Jan. 3, 1914.
The Cricket Ground, opened in 1882, has
been transformed into a baseball eld over a
few weeks. The right- and left-eld foul
poles are each 328 feet from home plate and
straightaway center eld is 400 feet away.
From all reports, balls have been carrying.
The Dodgers defeated Australias national
team 4-2 Thursday night in an exhibition
that drew just 14,385. Yasiel Puig, batting
.122 (5 for 41) coming in, hit a two-run
homer in the eighth, two innings after
throwing out Mike Walker at the plate from
right eld.
Miley will be pitching in place of Patrick
Corbin, who has a partially torn ligament
in his left elbow that may require season-
ending surgery.
Kershaw, the 2011 and 2013 NLCy Young
Award winner, will be making his rst start
since signing as $215 million, seven-year
contract, the largest deal ever for a pitcher.
I dont take for granted the contract,
Kershaw said Thursday. Its a really amaz-
ing thing that the Dodgers think enough of
me to give me something like that. I under-
stand the responsibilities that come with
that. As long as you win, everything takes
care of itself.
The Dodgers and Diamondbacks play each
other nearly 20 times a season in the NL
West, and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly
said this week that any teams would develop
a healthy rivalry in such a situation.
Last June, a brawl between the teams
resulted in the suspensions of eight players.
And when the Dodgers clinched the West
title in Phoenix, a decision by some of their
players to jump in the Chase Field swim-
ming pool angered some Diamondbacks.
I dont know what their sentiment is, but
for us, its just a new season, Kershaw said.
Were just going to play a game, not won-
der what could or would happen. Weve had
our scufes in the past and it should all be in
the past.
Obviously their big name guys Paul
Goldschmidt, Aaron Hill, Martin Prado
some of these guys they have over there
they play the game the right way. I enjoy
watching them play. Its tough to beat
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson

involving the infielders. With outfielder
Cody Ross on the disabled list due to a hip
injury, the Diamondbacks could carry two
Im probably going to play one of them

Los Angeles, which could overtake the
New York Yankees as baseballs biggest
spender, went 92-70 last year and won the
NL West title by 11 games over the
Diamondbacks, then beat Atlanta in the
best-of-ve division series before losing to
St. Louis in a six-game NL championship.

It was a picturesque Friday for the one and
only home swim meet of the year at the
fourth annual College of San Mateo Swim
The six-team field consisted of CSM,
Fullerton, Foothill, Solano, De Anza, and
Chabot, with Bulldogs freshman Kawei Tan
continuing to impress in the pool.
Tan captured rst place in ve events,
including three individual swims in the 100
y in 52.6 seconds; the 200 individual med-
ley in 1:56.55; the 200 backstroke in
2:04.43. Tan also teamed for team wins with
Derek Koo, Kyle Centis and Josh Yeager in
the 200 free relay in 1:32.2 and the 400 med-
ley relay at 3:46.61.
A four-year varsity swimmer at
Burlingame, Tan has his sights set on the
state nal the rst weekend in May for which
he has already qualied in the 100 back-
stroke and the 200 individual medley. And he
has some fairly lofty ambitions beyond
that, as he has dreams of competing on the
international stage as well as transferring to
a four-year swimming program after next
My dream is to swim for USC, Tan said.
I want to see how far swimming can get
After winning Burlingames team MVP
honors for three consecutive seasons in
2011, 12 and 13, Tan said he was accepted
to swim at the University of Puget Sound but
opted to stay close to home.
Koo, a CSM sophomore, often pairs with
Tan at practices to push one another. A2011
graduate from Serra, Koo returned to swim-
ming after attending UCLA as an academic
freshman. Since the Bruins dont have a
mens swim team due Title IX, he was able to
enlist as an athletic freshman when he trans-
ferred to CSM last year.
Now CSMs top two mens swimmers on a
thin 2014 roster, Koo and Tan both have a
fun understanding of the dynamic that fuels
them on a daily basis.
He pushes me and I keep him in check,
Koo said. Hes faster than me but I guess
you can say Im grooming him to take over
when Im done.
Koo is also making a bid to qualify for sec-
tionals, but has yet to do so. In addition to
the two relay win, the sophomore took rst
place Friday in the mens 100 backstroke
with a time of 56.86 seconds. He has yet to
post a qualifying time to advance to the state
nals however, and has two more shots to do
so at CSMs nal regular season meet
April 5 at Chabot and the conference nals
April 17-19 also at Chabot.

As a team, however, CSM isnt in a posi-
tion to contend, according to 12th year head
coach Randy Wright.
Its not a deep team so were not going
to win a state title (as a team), Wright said.
The lack of depth is akin to CSM not hav-
ing a water polo team, a sport that Wright
knows something about having played on
two national championship teams at UCLA
in 1995 and 96. To compete in competitive
swimming, a team has to go up against
schools which are as deep as 16 swimmers
due to the talent on their respective water
polo rosters. The Bulldogs, with ve good
swimmers on their mens roster according to
Wright, are simply overmatched as a team.

speed and you have to have depth, Wright

By Josh Dubow
ALAMEDA Matt Schaub and the
Oakland Raiders are both hoping to put the
mistakes of 2013 in the past.
The Raiders acquired Schaub from Houston
on Friday for a sixth-round draft pick, giv-
ing the quarterback a second chance after he
lost his starting job with the Texans last
A fresh start can do a lot of things for a
player and a team and Im one of those
guys, Schaub said. Last year did not go as
I had planned, given my prior nine years
before that. Im looking for a fresh start,
Im excited for the opportunity here.
The deal also is a second chance for
Oakland general manager Reggie
McKenzie, whose trade last spring for Matt
Flynn was a bust when he couldnt win the
starting job and was eventually released
early in the season.
Coach Dennis Allen said Schaub comes in
as the starter after Terrelle Pryor and Matt
McGloin were inconsistent last year in
Oaklands second straight four-win season.
The quarterback position is the most
important position on the football eld,
Allen said. We feel very condent that Matt
Schaub is the guy that can come in and lead
this football team. And hes proven that he
can do it in this league.
Schaub was Houstons starter from 2007
until last season, when he was benched in
favor of Case Keenum after a terrible start to
the year. The Texans were expected to con-
tend for a Super Bowl last season, but
instead became the NFLs worst team, sink-
ing to 2-14, which tied the worst record in
franchise history.
It was clear after last season that Schaub
didnt have a future in Houston, but his
departure looked to be imminent on
Thursday night when the Texans signed vet-
eran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
We werent going to let last season deter
us from the player and the track record that
he has shown over his career, offensive
coordinator Greg Olson said. He was our
No. 1 target from Day 1, and it was just a
matter of getting the deal done.
Along with failing in the Flynn trade,
McKenzie also wasted a fourth-round draft
pick on quarterback Tyler Wilson, who did
not make the roster out of training camp and
was eventually signed off the practice squad
by Tennessee.
The move takes pressure off Oakland to
use a high draft pick on a quarterback in May
when Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and
Johnny Manziel are all projected as rst-
round picks.
The Raiders pick fth overall in the draft
but now can use that selection to ll anoth-
er hole. The Texans might be in the market
for a quarterback with the top pick.
Oakland is hoping last year was an aberra-
tion for Schaub.
While the Texans had plenty of problems,
Schaubs poor play was perhaps the
biggest. The Texans won their rst two
games before Schaub began to struggle and
he threw six interceptions, three of which
were returned for touchdowns in the next
three games. He started the sixth game of
the season and left with an injury before
being replaced in the starting lineup by
People look at Schaub and only look at
his last year, said Raiders safety Charles
Woodson, who ofcially signed his one-
year contract to return earlier in the day.
I think they base his career off of his last
year. But, I see a guy that, in my opinion,
has been very steady. Hes done some really
good things throughout his time.
Sometimes you just need a fresh start, a new
set of circumstances to restart, to restart
your history. Hopefully this is the place
that he can get it done.
Keenum was injured late in the season,
forcing Houston to go back to Schaub for
the last two games. He didnt fare any better

Raiders acquire QB Schaub from Texans
Matt Schaub had been Houstons starter since 2007. Last year, he was benched after a
terrible start to the season. He is the second big-name quarterback the Raiders have traded
for in two years. Last year they traded for Matt Flynn, who was ultimately cut after one start.

For now, coach Johnny Dawkins wanted to
savor his rst tournament win in six seasons.
His previous signature triumph was an NITtitle
two years ago.
I havent had the chance to even think about
that, Dawkins said. I have been in this tour-
nament a number of times as a player and coach
and the thing you have to do is stay focused on
what youre doing.
Both of those teams are great, neither one of
those teams would be here if they werent very
good at what they do.
Cameron Bairstow had 24 points and eight
rebounds but the Lobos (27-7) got off-days from
their other top threats. Kendall Williams and
Alex Kirk, who together average 30 points,
combined for just six.
I thought I had some good looks, and some
of them were short, Williams said. The rst
one was an air ball and I just couldnt nd the
New Mexico has been one and done the last
two seasons, losing as the No. 3 seed to Harvard
last year under coach Steve Alford and now as the
No. 7 under Craig Neal. The Lobos unofcial
theme was Unnished Business.
Weve done about everything you can do, its
just getting better in the tournament, said Neal,
who was an assistant last year. I just wanted to
get these guys back and have another chance. It
just didnt work out for us this time.
Long-range shooting was a key, with
Stanford going 8 for 15 including 3 for 3 by
Brown and New Mexico going just 4 for 21.
Stanford got away with an off-day from
Dwight Powell, who missed all eight shots,
fouled out and scored three points. Powell aver-
ages 14.2 points, second on the team.
Youre going to have to win games like this
where your best player is not at their best,
Dawkins said. I think hes a young man that
will bounce back. He always has.
Anthony Brown added 10 points and seven
rebounds for the Cardinal and Stefan Nastic had
10 points and ve rebounds.
Both teams big men, Nastic and Kirk, were
dogged by foul trouble.
Stanford hit eight of its rst 10 shots and
scored 17 straight points, including six from
Randle, for a 20-4 lead with 13:23 to go in the
rst half.
New Mexico went 6:26 between points and
more than 7 minutes between baskets before
gaining its footing. The Lobos kept feeding it
to Bairstow and ended the half on an 8-0 run that
cut the decit to 32-27.
Bairstow hit his rst four shots in the second
half and New Mexico tied it at 45 near the mid-
point of the second half before going scoreless
for nearly 7 minutes.
We got out early, they kept ghting, they
kept coming back, Dawkins said. Guys
stepped up and made plays when we really need-
ed them.
Lemons scored his only points on two free
throws with 23.8 seconds to go to put the
Cardinal up by four. Hes a 58-percent free throw
shooter and played just seven minutes before
foiling New Mexicos strategy.
We fouled who we wanted to foul, Neal said.
Somebody has to make a play or somebody
doesnt have to make a play.
But he hit two big free throws.

Association to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of
the NBADevelopmental League.
Next up: 11th-seeded Tennessee, which upset
sixth-seeded Massachusetts 86-67, on Sunday
in the third round.
Jakob Gollon scored 20 points and Daniel
Coursey scored 17, helping the Bears overcome
a season-high 15 3-pointers from Duke.
Mercer qualied for its rst NCAAtournament
since 1985 by winning the Atlantic Sun confer-
ence championship over Florida Gulf Coast,
nicknamed Dunk City for the teams above-
the-rim offense. A year earlier, the Bears lost
that game and watched FGCU advance to the
Sweet 16.
When they were going on their run, we were
sitting at home thinking, Man, that could have
been us,Anthony White Jr. said.
Now it is.
Mercer scored 11 straight points during the
late 20-5 run that clinched the biggest victory in
school history and sent the Blue Devils to their
second rst-game exit in three years.
Quinn Cook scored 23 points and Rasheed
Sulaimon added 20 for Duke.
But their defense an uncharacteristic weak-
ness all season did them in again while all
those Mercer seniors simply got any shot they
wanted. The Bears shot 56 percent 58 percent
in the second half.
Theyre a team thats been together a long
time, Duke forward Rodney Hood said. They
sliced us up. Theres no other way to put it.
Duke went up 63-58 with 4:52 left after Parker
converted a three-point play and Tyler Thornton
hit three free throws.
The Blue Devils didnt score again until the
nal minute.
I dont know if we panicked, senior Andre
Dawkins said, but we didnt do the things we
needed to do.
Like score. Or defend.
Coursey countered by rattling in a jumper in
the lane, and after two empty possessions for
Duke, some slick ball rotation by Mercer set up
Whites open 3 that tied it at 63.
Hood picked up his fourth foul on the Bears
next possession and Gollon hit two free throws
to put Mercer ahead for good.
By that point, Duke could do nothing right.
Parker missed a 3-pointer in trafc before
Hood was called for walking, leading White to
give a st-pump to those noisy Mercer fans who
stood all day.
The Bears hit 12 of 14 free throws in the nal
2 minutes to seal it.
After the buzzer sounded, the Bears players
formed a circle on the sideline and danced. In the
middle was guard Kevin Canevari, a Charlotte
native whos one of the seven seniors on the

We dont really look at it like were an underdog

The billion dollar dream is over.
Asecond day of upsets ended any chance of
someone having a perfect NCAA tournament
bracket in Warren Buffets $1 billion chal-
lenge. It was a favorite that provided the rst
blemish on the nal three peoples brackets in
the Quicken Loans contest on the Yahoo
Sports website.
All three had ninth-seeded George
Washington beating Memphis. The Tigers
won 71-66.
If Warren Buffett wants to donate the (bil-
lion) to our university, we will take it and use
it in good company, Memphis coach Josh
Pastner said. Well nd a way.
It only took 25 games for everyone to be
eliminated. Then again most of brackets were
knocked out on the tournaments rst full day.
The number of unblemished brackets kept
dwindling after third-seed Duke, sixth-seed
UMass and seventh-seed New Mexico lost
Only 16 people remained perfect after 10th-
seeded Stanford topped New Mexico. Then
Tennessee routed UMass, leaving only six
people with a chance of beating the 9.2 quin-
tillion-to-1 odds.
Gonzagas victory over Oklahoma State cut
that down to the nal three.
Even though no one won the $1 billion, the
top 20 scores will still each get $100,000.
Quicken Loans, which is sponsoring and
insuring the Buffet contest, said on its Twitter
feed that it wouldnt reveal the number of
entrants to the challenge. The pool was sup-
posed to be capped at 15 million entries. It
probably wouldnt have mattered if they had
let more people join.
At, only 0.03 percent of
entrants were still perfect after Mercer upset
Duke. They didnt last much longer as
Tennessees rout of UMass wiped out all the
remaining unblemished entries. It took 21
games to end everyones hope of perfection
this year. Last season it took 23 games and 24
in 2012.
A year ago, not a single person of the 11
million who entered on ESPNs website was
perfect after a rst day lled with upsets. Just
four got 15 out of 16 right.
This year people lasted a little longer. After
the rst 25 games, three perfect brackets
remained out of the 11 million entered.
NCAA upsets crush perfect bracket hopes
Wichita State 64, Cal Poly 37
ST. LOUIS Cleananthony Early had 23 points and
unbeaten Wichita State faced no resistance from Cal Poly,
going to 35-0 for the best start in NCAAhistory with a rout
of Cal Poly.
The Shockers (35-0) dominated from the tip-off against
the only team with a sub-.500 record in the tournament.
With the exception of Early, most of the glaring numbers
were on defense. The losers managed 13 points in the rst
half and shot 21 percent.
Malik Love had nine points for Cal Poly (14-20), which
won the Big West tournament as the No. 7 seed and beat
Texas Southern in First Four game before being held to a
season low for points. Chris Eversley, the Big West tourney
MVP and coming off a 19-point game, was held to six
points on 2-for-14 shooting.
Tennessee 86, UMass 67
RALEIGH, N.C. Jarnell Stokes scored a career-high 26
points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Tennessee.
Jordan McRae added 21 points for the Volunteers (23-12),
the No. 11 seed in the Midwest Regional. Tennessee had lit-
tle trouble with the sixth-seeded Minutemen (24-9), shoot-
ing 54 percent from the eld and handling UMass fullcourt
pressure in a surprisingly one-sided performance that
included another solid defensive showing.
The Vols are in the NCAAs for the rst time in three sea-
sons, starting with a First Four overtime win against Iowa.
Chaz Williams and Maxie Esho scored 12 points each for
UMass in its first NCAA appearance since 1998. The
Minutemen fell behind by double gures early, trailed by 20
points before halftime and never got closer than 10 again.
Kansas 80, E. Kentucky 69
ST. LOUIS Andrew Wiggins scored 19 points, Jamari
Traylor and Perry Ellis had double-doubles and second-seed-
ed Kansas pulled away down the stretch to beat pesky
Eastern Kentucky.
Traylor nished with 17 points and 14 rebounds, and Ellis
had 14 points and 13 boards for the Jayhawks (25-9), who
trailed 56-53 with 9 minutes to go before their game-ending
Glenn Cosey hit ve 3-pointers and had 17 points for the
15th-seeded Colonels (24-10), the Ohio Valley Conference
champions. Tarius Johnson and Eric Stutz nished with 15
points apiece.
Stephen F. Austin 77, VCU 75 OT
SAN DIEGO Desmond Haymon scored on an improba-
ble four-point play with 3.6 seconds in regulation and hit a
big 3-pointer in overtime to lead No. 12 seed Stephen F.
Austin to a win over fth-seeded Virginia Commonwealth.
VCU (23-10) was rmly in control for most of the second
half before SFA(32-2) rallied in the closing seconds.
Haymon hit one of the biggest and most improbable
shots of whats already been a wild March, knocking
down a 3-pointer and a free throw after being fouled by
Jordan Burgess at the end of regulation.
Haymon hit another 3-pointer to put SFAup with 2 min-
utes left, but VCU had a nal shot after Thomas Walkup
missed 1 of 2 free throws with 14 seconds left. JeQuan
Lewis got an open 3-pointer, but it went long and SFA
snared the rebound.
Bay lor 74, Nebraska 60
SAN ANTONIO Cory Jefferson scored 16 points and
sixth-seeded Baylor kept 11th-seeded Nebraska winless in
its NCAAtournament history.
The Bears (25-11) have won 11 of 13 after a dismal start
in the Big 12, recapturing the kind of momentum that vault-
ed the Bears to the Elite Eight in 2010 and 2012.
Terran Petteway scored 18 points for Nebraska (19-13),
which fell to 0-7 in tournament history.
The Cornhuskers hadnt played on this stage since 1998
and often looked like it. Frustration boiled over for Big Ten
coach of the year Tim Miles, who was ejected with 11 min-
utes left.
Creighton 76, Louisiana-Lafayette 66
SAN ANTONIO Doug McDermott scored 30 points and
third-seeded Creighton got three huge 3-pointers in the sec-
ond half from Ethan Wragge to beat Louisiana-Lafayette.
McDermott had a double-double by halftime but went
scoreless for nearly 14 minutes of the second half, leaving
it to Wragges long shots to bail out the Bluejays from a
potential upset by the Ragin Cajuns, who attacked
Creighton (27-7) with fearless defense and rebounding.
Elfrid Payton scored 24 points for Sun Belt tournament
champion Louisiana-Lafayette (23-12), which led 50-48
before Wragge struck from long range to turn the momen-
McDermott came into the tournament averaging 26.9
points per game and ranks fth in NCAA history in career
points. He has scored at least 30 points in four of
Creightons last ve games.
Arizona 68, Weber St. 59
SAN DIEGO Nick Johnson scored 18 points and Aaron
Gordon added 16 as top-seeded Arizona overcame a shaky
start and a late run by Weber State.
Arizona (31-4) fell into an eight-point decit in the open-
ing minutes to give the 16th-seeded Wildcats hope of a
monumental upset.
The desert Wildcats tried to squash the dream quickly with
two big second-half runs, but Weber State fought its way
back from a 21-point decit to make it close in the second
Arizona blocked 12 shots, held Weber State to 30 percent
shooting and made 55 percent of its shots.
Davion Berry had 24 points to lead Weber State (19-12) in
its rst NCAAtournament appearance since 2007.
Gonzaga 85, Oklahoma St. 77
SAN DIEGO Kevin Pangos scored 26 points and Gary
Bell Jr. added 17 for eighth-seeded Gonzaga, which beat
Marcus Smart and ninth-seeded Oklahoma State.
The Bulldogs (29-6) are in their 16th straight NCAAtour-

moved into scoring position.
That brought up Sagasty, who ended the
We needed this win. We need to turn our
season around, said Martinez, who drove in
three runs for Terra Nova. It was more
about, What kind of team are we? Weve
been through this before.
The last-gasp rally made a winner of soph-
omore pitcher Jared Milch, who was called
up to the varsity squad after an injury to
Anthony Gordon, one of the Tigers best
pitchers and players. He pitched a complete
game, allowing four runs on three hits.
Hes a competitor, Gentile said of
Milch. He doesnt get rattled.
When Terra Nova, trailing 1-0, scored
three runs in the bottom of the fth, it
looked as if Milch was going to earn a less
dramatic win as he limited Menlo to just one
run on one hit through six innings.
In the seventh, however, the Knights
nally came alive. Macklan Badger led off
the inning with his teams second hit of the
game, a single to center. Christian Pluchar
then followed with a walk. After a Milch
strikeout and a foulout to first baseman
Brandon Barnes, the Knights were down to
their last out.
Diekroeger, Menlos best player, came
out and he was intentionally walked to load
the bases and bring up Graham Stratford.
The strategy backred on the Tigers, as
Stratford dumped an opposite eld single to
left to drive in Badger and Pluchar with the
tying run.
When the ball took a funny hop away
from the left elder, it enabled Diekroeger to
score from rst with the go-ahead run.
That set up Terra Novas dramatic nal at-
Menlo (1-1, 5-3) took a 1-0 lead in the
top of the third when Sam Crowder hit a sac-
rifice fly to center to drive in Mikey
Diekroeger, who drew a one-out walk, went
to second on an error and stole third.
Terra Nova nally solved Menlo starting
pitcher Wyatt Driscoll in the bottom of the
fth. With one out, Marinelli singled to left
and moved to second on a passed ball.
Peterson drew a walk and both he and
Marinelli moved up 90 feet on a wild pitch
to put runners on second and third.
Following a strikeout, Martinez came to
the plate and, on a 2-2 offering, smoked a
drive into the left center-eld gap for a two-
run double to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead.
Thats what we practice for, Martinez
said. We want to be in that situation.
Added Gentile: [Martinez is] our best hit-
ter. He pulled his groin. Hes about 75 per-
cent but hes gutting it out.
Armstrong followed with an RBI double
of his own to put the Tigers up 3-1, setting
up the wild ending.
Its going to be an interesting (PAL Bay
Division) race, Schoof said.
Continued from page 11
Billinger. After an intentional walk to Tyler
Deason to load the bases, Benedetti ran the
count to 3-1 before taking the decisive pitch
that wasnt close to the plate.
[Taking Blais out of the game] didnt
even cross my mind, actually, Gianinno
Blais allowed one run on two hits over
eight innings of work, while striking out
ve against four walks three of which
came in the nal inning. The senior threw
91 pitches, including 77 pitches through
the regulation seven innings. The righty
was smooth and stoic in pounding the zone
with a mid-80s fastball while changing
speeds effectively and flashing a crisp
breaking ball to keep batters honest.
Sometimes if I get hyped up it can throw
me off my game, Blais said. So I just
entered it like any other normal game. (I)
used my strengths, which is mixing my
pitches with my ability.
But his opponent, Gavin, provided the
perfect counterbalance to Blais demeanor.
Gavin was as animated as he was dynamic.
The ery left-hander certainly had the look
down pat, from the bright green shoelaces
to offset the Lancers signature brown and
gold uniform, while wearing his stirrups at
dramatically mismatched lengths to create
the stigma of a quirky southpaw. But the re-
baller is anything but quirky as evidenced
by the array of pro scouts on hand to keep
tabs on his low-90s heat.
Gavin dealt through six innings to take a
no decision, allowing no runs on three hits
while striking out 10 against two walks. He
also gets two nominations for st-pump of
the year, one after a pickoff at second base
of James Outman to end one of the Padres
biggest threats in the fth. The second came
after a double play on a comebacker off the
bat of Nolan Dempsey in the sixth.
He did a very good job, Blais said of
Gavin. He was able to locate his stuff.
Obviously we werent able to mount that
much against him. So, he did a good job
and kept us off the bases, which was the
Blais and Gavin were actually teammates
last summer on the scout team for the San
Francisco Giants that played out of
Stockton. Susnara, the Lancers standout
catcher who has played for the Giants scout
team for the past three years, caught both of
them throughout the 2013 summer season.
Caps off to Matt Blais, Susnara said.
Hes a hard worker. I know how much he
wanted this game. It could have gone either
way, really [0-0] going into the eighth. I
mean, it was a great game.
Lancers lefty Andrew Carter earned the win
with two innings of relief to improve his
record to 2-0.
Serra had three chances to generate small-
ball offense but failed to execute in each sit-
uation. Ian McGuire bunted two pitches foul
following a leadoff walk to Daniel Molinari
in the third. McGuire went on to strike out
and Molinari was ultimately stranded at
rst. In the sixth, Christopher Papapietro
singled to start the frame but Dempsey failed
to get a bunt down and went on to ground
into a double play. Neil Sterling led off the
eighth with a double, but Sean Watkins in
his rst game of the season after returning
from Serra basketballs Nor Cal playoff
berth also came up empty after getting
the bunt sign.
Its tough that someone has got to lose
in that situation from an outcome perspec-
tive, Gianinno said. [Blais] certainly
pitched well enough to win. As a group we
had chances. We had moments. We just did-
nt execute when we had those chances. Its
an unforgiving game. But Im proud of him
and our team. And, you know, were a good
baseball team. Weve just got to bounce
back and keep chipping away at it.

No charges filed in baseball stabbing
SAN FRANCISCO Prosecutors have
decided not to prosecute a man in the stab-
bing death of a Dodgers fan during an alter-
cation after a Los Angeles-San Francisco
baseball game last year.
District Attorney George Gascon said in a
statement Friday that prosecutors wouldnt
le charges against Michael Montgomery
because they didnt believe they had enough
evidence to prove that Montgomery didnt
act in self-defense when he killed Jonathan
Gascon said it is not clear how the Sept.
25 incident began.
Police have said Denver and his group,
many wearing Dodgers garb, got into a
shouting match over the Dodgers with
Montgomery and his group at least one
of whom was wearing a Giants cap.
Montgomerys father said his son was
jumped and stabbed Denver in self-defense
after they yelled Giants suck.
Denvers brother disputed that
Montgomery acted in self-defense.

ORLANDO, Fla. Adam Scott
keeps putting his name in the Bay
Hill record book, each round mov-
ing him closer to another handshake
with The King.
One day after Scott opened with a
record-tying 62 in the Arnold Palmer
Invitational, he hit his stride around
the turn Friday with ve birdies in an
eight-hole stretch to leave everyone
else far behind.
Even with a
three-putt bogey
on his nal
hole, Scott still
had a 4-under 68
for a seven-shot
He was at 14-
under 130,
matching the
36-hole record at Bay Hill rst set by
Tom Watson and Andy Bean in
1981. And his seven-shot margin at
the halfway point shattered the pre-
vious record held by Tiger Woods in
2002 and Paul Azinger in 1988.
Scott sounds like hes not the least
bit satised.
The challenge might be just to
start again and try and play a great
36 holes, he said. Start fresh and
try to be the leader after the next
That would merit a visit with
Arnold Palmer, the tournament host
known simply as The King in golf
circles. Scott has spoken glowingly
all week about his rst invitation to
Bay Hill when he was 20. Walking
off the rst green, Palmer was in a
cart to greet him with a handshake,
and Scott was amazed that Palmer
knew his name.
Now hes the Masters champion,
and the 33-year-old Australian is
playing like one.
J.B. Holmes (69), Chesson
Hadley (68) and Francesco Molinari
of Italy (70) were tied for second at
7-under. Keegan Bradley had the low
score of the blustery second round
with a 67, putting him in a group at
138 that included Brandt Snedeker
(71) and Jamie Donaldson of Wales
I think Im 10 behind and play-
ing pretty well for two rounds, said
Snedeker, who was off by two. Hes
playing pretty phenomenal. Hes
going to be a tough guy to catch. A
guy that hits it as good as he does
and seems to have a complete game
like he has, and the way hes playing
now, hes not going to come back-
ward. Seems like an awfully special
week if you can get close to him.
Scott played in the afternoon,
when the course began to get rm
under two days of full sunshine, and
the pace on the greens began to
quicken. No one ever got closer than
his three-shot lead to start the round,
though there were two pivotal
He holed a 15-foot par putt on the
rst hole to calm his nerves, and he
hit a gorgeous shot out of the rough
from 167 yards and made a 12-foot
birdie on the ninth. He went to the
back nine 1-under par for his round,
and he took off from there.
Scott hit a 7-iron to 4 feet on No.
11, got up-and-down for birdie on
the par-3 12th, nearly holed a tough
chip from behind the 14th green to
save par, and then made consecutive
birdies with a 30-foot putt on the
15th and a 7-iron to pin-high for a
two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th.
He only made it look easy.
There were three rounds in the 80s,
including by U.S. Amateur champi-
on Matthew Fitzpatrick. U.S. Open
champion Justin Rose, playing in
the same group with Scott, had a 79
and missed the cut for the rst time
in a regular PGATour event since The
Players Championship last May.

JERUSALEM The Israeli mil-
itary announced Friday it has
uncovered another tunnel the
biggest so far dug from the
Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, stretch-
ing into Israel and intended for
militant attacks or abducting sol-
diers and civilians.
According to military
spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner,
the opening of the terror tunnel
was hundreds of meters (yards)
inside Israel.
Israel has found several such
tunnels in recent years but this
was the biggest found to date,
Lerner said. He said parts of the
tunnel were still uncovered and
that there are concerns it could be
booby-trapped. He said it was near
several Israeli border communities
but did not give a more exact loca-
Another part of Gazas border,
that which adjoins Egypt, is hon-
eycombed with tunnels used for
The tunnel into Israel was found
this week by Israeli intelligence
and the military, Lerner said, say-
ing the structure was lined with
concrete and describing it as very
sophisticated, resembling a sub-
way tunnel.
This advanced tunnel was
intended to pose a direct link and
threat to Israeli territory, and
enable Hamas terrorists to reach
and harm Israeli civilians, Lerner
An electric generator and tools,
along with fresh tracks, were
found in the tunnel, indicating
that it had been worked on recent-
l y, he added.
Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida
said he blamed the tunnels dis-
covery on recent rains that
exposed its opening, insisting
the tunnel itself was old.
Our mujahedeen (holy warriors)
worked to x it, he said, offering
a possible explanation of the
fresh tracks. The enemys allega-
tions about intelligence efforts
behind the discovery are a big
Israel has for years banned
cement from entering Gaza, argu-
ing it could be used by militants.
But since 2010, it has allowed
some construction materials in for
internationally funded construc-
tion projects.
Israel and Hamas are bitter ene-
mies. Palestinians have been
deeply divided since Hamas over-
ran Gaza in 2007, ousting forces
from the Fatah party, led by the
Western-backed secular
Palestinian President Mahmoud
Abbas, in bloody street battles.
Abbas has since ruled only in
parts of the West Bank, and the
Islamic Hamas has held sway in
Gaza. Israel is engaged in peace
talks with Abbas while shunning
Gaza militants have red thou-
sands of rockets and mortar rounds
at Israel over the past decade.
Attacks have declined since an
eight-day Israeli offensive in
2012 against Gaza militants
aimed at stopping what was
almost daily re at the time. But
rocket re still persists.
Last week, Gaza militants red
the heaviest rocket barrage at
Israeli communities since 2012,
and Israel responded with air
strikes on militant targets.
Earlier this month, Israeli spe-
cial forces captured a ship in the
Red Sea carrying rockets and other
weapons that Israel said were sup-
plied by Iran and destined for mil-
itants in Gaza.

Shes right cameras
have become so com-
monplace in todays culture that many peo-
ple my age dont think twice when they
have their photo taken. We are the subjects
of so many snapshots that were very com-
fortable posing for photos and using cam-
eras to take our own. But looking through
old portraits in museums or my grandpar-
ents albums, its clear this wasnt always
the case.
For a long time after their invention,
cameras were so bulky and expensive that
they were used to take formal portraits, not
candid shots. Because photos were taken so
infrequently, people posed for them differ-
ently and often ended up looking stiffer
than they probably were in real life.
Furthermore, digital cameras give us so
much more control over how a photo
looks. If the rst shot isnt perfect, it can
just be retaken, and a person doesnt have
to wait until the lm is developed to see
how the photos came out.
The increased access my generation has
to cameras is exciting; it allows us to bet-
ter document our lives and the events occur-
ring around us. And while my formal educa-
tion about photography is limited to the
introductory year-long class I took at

attempt to do a Sidney Lumet atlines in
Blood Ties, an anemic drama about a fam-
ily split, dened by one brother being a
cop, the other a criminal. A remake of the
2008 French release Les Liens du Sang
(Rivals), which co-starred Canet as the
policeman, this versions bloat only spot-
lights the more crucial problem of a lack of
energy and internal turmoil in the main
characters. The impressive cast makes this
French-nanced New York 1974-set produc-
tion watchable but its too inert to catch on
It takes Canet, who scored an internation-
al hit as a director in 2006 with Tell No
One, 40 minutes longer to tell the same
story than it did Jacques Maillot in the orig-
inal, and theres no reason for it, other than
perhaps the ambition to make a quasi-epic
fabric lm thick with period atmosphere
and character depth. The 70s recreation is
reasonable but the characters never register
beyond the surfaces of the scenes despite
being equipped with long-festering resent-
ments and grudges.

A strange sense of doom hangs over the
rebooted Muppets, and its not from the
Swedish Chefs cooking.
The Muppets (2011) may have been an
earnest and largely successful relaunch for
Jim Hensons troupe, but it also had a hang-
dog melancholy, fretting about the obsoles-
cence of Kermit and the gang. Pop-culture
insecurity looms in Muppets Most
Wanted, too, which begins with the same
self-conscious tone as the last lm in the
musical number Were Doing a Sequel.
Though Dr. Bunsen Honeydew (still the
greatest name in show biz, sorry Sidney
Poitier) notes this is technically the
Muppets seventh sequel, they neverthe-
less sing: And everyone knows the
sequels not quite as good.
The Muppets dont need a sequel. They
need a shrink. It seems theyve swapped
the most inspirational, celebrational,
Muppetational show for an ongoing pity
party. Where is the condent intrepidness
that made Gonzo disdainful of breaking
through the easy way (Hollywood) when

Muppets Most Wanted, thankfully,
soon enough dispatches the previous
films mopey nostalgia and sets things on
a more madcap course: a European caper,
not unlike 1981s (alas superior) The
Great Muppet Caper. The ingredients are
here: Tina Fey as a Broadway-loving Gulag
guard in Soviet chic; Ty Burrell in
Inspector Clouseau mode; Ricky Gervais as
the comically obvious bad guy (name:
Dominic Badguy). But Muppets Most
Wanted fails to whip up the kind of furry
frenzy that makes the Muppets special.
Whats missing? Many would say Jason
Segel, the star and co-writer of The
Muppets. Hes the holdout of largely the
same, solid creative team: director James
Bobin, co-writer Nicholas Stoller and
music supervisor Bret McKenzie.
But the bigger problem with Muppets
Most Wanted is a failure to find the right
human-to-Muppet ratio and a screwball feel
for how the species interact. Most success-
ful are Fey (who emerges as an unlikely
rival to Miss Piggy for Kermits heart) and
Burrell (an Interpol policeman paired with
the CIAs Sam the Eagle).
The Muppets instead feel upstaged by the
parade of celebrity cameos (they range
from Lady Gaga to Christoph Waltz), as if
the movie is one big selfie for stars to be
seen alongside their Muppet heroes. The
plot, too, doesnt yield much time to
favorites like the lovingly harebrained
Gonzo the Great, the endlessly chipper
Fozzie the Bear or the mellow, melodic
Rowlf the Dog.
The film picks up literally where The
Muppets left off, as they disassemble the
movie set. Unsure of their next step, the
Muppets are persuaded by a slick British
agent (Gervais) to embark on a theater tour
in Europe. Only Kermit is suspicious, but
hes soon kidnapped by an escaped Russian
criminal mastermind, Constantine.
Constantine (voiced with a playful
Russian accent by Matt Vogel) happens to
look precisely like Kermit (again voiced
by Steve Whitmire), only with a mole on
his cheek and a slightly more pinched
nose. While Kermit is mistakenly sent to
the Gulag in Siberia (fellow inmates are
played by Ray Liotta and Danny Trejo, as
himself), his evil doppelganger replaces
the Muppet leader on tour. He and Badguy
use the performances as a distraction for
robbing banks.
Much of the humor stems from the
Muppets failure to recognize the clearly
different version of their long-legged
impresario. The usually fastidious frog,
with Constantine running things, doesnt
mind giving Animal an endless drum solo
and absent-mindedly calls Gonzo Zongo.
Judging the Muppets against their own
high standards is perhaps unfair, particu-
larly when weve been absent of Hensons
genius for nearly 25 years. Muppets Most
Wanted may not rise to the irreverent
slapstick the gang once did, but it is still,
after all, the Muppets.
Yet instead of trying to be like other
globe-trotting, star-studded sequels, the
Muppets ought to be happy with simply
being themselves. How does the song go?
Keep believing.
Muppets Most Wanted, a Walt Disney
Studios release, is rated PG by the Motion
Picture Association of America for some
mild action. Running time: 106 minutes.

eras become, nothing will ever replace a
good-old digital point and shoot. Since I
got an iPhone, I nd that I rarely carry my
camera with me because my phone takes
decent photos. Yet, time and time again, I
nd the snapshots I take on my phone
especially outside shots are never as
sharp as the ones taken on a digital point
and shoot. Also, digital cameras have so
many more settings and features than cell-
phone cameras have. If youre going to
snap a lot of photos especially outside
and carrying a camera wont weigh you
down too much, consider tossing it in your
Second, photo-editing technology
should be used responsibly and sparingly.
Right now, we are constantly being forced
to question the accuracy of what we see in
photographs. As more and more accusa-
tions surface regarding over-airbrushed
bodies or retouched faces, it could be easy
to write off all photo editing software as
toxic. However, photo editing tools can be
extremely useful. I often use the program
that came on my laptop to quickly x dark-
ness and exposure issues before I print or
post a photo I took. I am always hesitant
to do any further editing because I want to
preserve the photo as it is. Candid shots
arent meant to be perfect, but they are
meant help us remember the moments as
they really were.
Third, photos have the ability to keep us
connected to our friends and family when
shared respectfully. I love when my dad
emails me photos during his business trips
they are fun to receive and give me a
peak into his world while hes away. That
being said, Ive also stumbled across pho-
tos of people I know at events I wasnt
invited to, and that can be hurtful. I make
an effort to take photos with friends and
family at events, while also being mindful
of how and with whom they are shared.
Lastly, and in my opinion most impor-
tantly, photos should augment our memo-
ries, not replace them. Its often tempting
to rip out my phone or camera when I see
something happening so I can quickly doc-
ument the moment. But oftentimes I am
unsuccessful. Either I dont get my camera
ready in time or the moment just cannot be
perfectly captured by a cellphone camera.
Sometimes, I nd its just best to experi-
ence the moment as it is happening and
rely on my memory to preserve it for me.
As camera technology continues to
improve, I will try to balance experiencing
my life through my own eyes as well as my

by younger brother Frank (Billy Crudup), an
upstanding policeman whos been prevailed
upon to put him up. Chris toes the line for a
while with a menial job at an auto shop,
where he takes up with the comely account-
ant Natalie (Mila Kunis), adding insult to
injury to his ex-wife Monica (Marion
Cotillard), whos now a hooker on drugs.
For Franks part, he broke up with
Vanessa (Zoe Saldana) some years back but
seems irked by her relationship with
brutish lowlife Scarfo (Matthias
Schoenaerts). When the latter is thrown
back in the slammer, Frank and Vanessa
unpersuasively reunite, which promises
trouble once Scarfo gets out.
Nothing very dramatic happens in Blood
Ties for nearly an hour, too long for whats
clearly announced at the outset as a criminal
saga that will explode into action and vio-
lence at some point. For such pent-up emo-
tions to register compellingly onscreen
requires actors who can externalize their
internal pressure cooker personalities with-
out necessarily verbalizing what ails them.
At least in this instance, Crudup cant con-
vey whats going on inside of him; Frank
seems pained and annoyed by his father and
brother but in a boringly victimized way.
When Chris nally gives up the feeble
pretense to going straight, his return to
crime is heartlessly brutal. His second job,
a successful heist, unintentionally puts
Frank in an untenable position that severe-
ly tests his moral ber and guts. Then its
Chris who gets the chance to show what
hes really made of in the climactic
sequence at crowded Grand Central Station
that lacks the desired impact both because
it seems so dramatically unlikely and
because audience conviction in the rela-
tionships is lacking.
The unexpected casting of Owen as a
Brooklyn gangster proves acceptable
enough; the actor has the physical bearing
to lord it over everyone else here and he
makes the mans callousness credible. Caan
has some good moments as the dying dad
who appreciates toughness over sensitivi-
t y, while Schoenaerts perhaps comes clos-
est of the nationally diverse cast members

Like Rogue in Marvels X-Men comics, Deslin Rowe, the star of infamous: Second Son, can absorb the powers of others.
By Lou Kesten
Ah, Seattle, home of a thousand cof-
fee shops, almost as many tech start-
ups and the loudest fans in the NFL.
Also, gangs of armed drug dealers, an
oppressive paramilitary presence and a
handful of superpowered rabble-
Deslin Rowe, the star of infamous:
Second Son (Sony, for the
PlayStation 4, $59.99), is one of those
malcontents. Hes on the run from the
Department of Unied Protection, a
government agency thats understand-
ably twitchy around mutants, given the
apocalyptic meltdown unleashed in
2011s inFamous 2. Deslin has his
own score to settle with the DUP, so
Seattleites had better hold onto their
Deslin isnt your ordinary comic-
book hero/villain. For starters, hes a
grafti artist who wears a wool cap and
a denim jacket rather than a mask and
tights. More important, like Rogue in
Marvels X-Men comics, he can absorb
the powers of other so-called con-
Those powers are fueled by ambient
elements of Seattles neighborhoods.
If Deslin inhales smoke, he can shoot
it back out as reballs. If he drains a
neon sign, he can slow down time and
shoot precise laser beams. Scattered all
over town are glowing shards he can
use to upgrade skills or unlock new
ones, which get more weird and am-
boyant as the game proceeds.
Happily, Deslin acquires his two
most useful skills right from the start:
superspeed and flight. Even when
youre not battling DUP troops, its
thrilling to race up the side of a sky-
scraper, leap off the roof and y to the
next building. Since shards and side
missions can be found on almost every
block, youll want to explore every
inch of the lively, three-dimensional
Seattle including landmarks like the
Space Needle and the monorail recre-
ated by Bellevue, Wash.-based Sucker
Punch Productions.
Most of the missions in Second
Son involve destroying DUP facili-
ties, although you can also get under
the governments skin by disrupting
its surveillance cameras or defacing its
billboards. There are also high-speed
chases, Earthbound and airborne. And
when you meet your fellow conduits
(the DUP calls them bio-terrorists)
head-to-head, youre treated to cleverly
designed boss battles that require a bal-
anced menu of superpowers to conquer.
Second Son continues the series
karma system, which forces you to
decide whether you want to be a hero or
a villain. Rescuing civilians earns you
good karma; slaughtering them earns
you evil karma. You can redeem or cor-
rupt other conduits. And you can try to
take enemies alive or just blow off their
heads. Some superpowers are available
only to good or evil characters, and
your ending will vary depending on
whether youre naughty or nice. Its a
bit simplistic, but provides ample rea-
son to replay the game and check out
the paths not taken.

FRANCISCO. The baggy pants. The
cane. The mustache. And oh, that bowler
hat. The Little Tramp the character
Charlie Chaplin created who is now so rec-
ognizable made his first appearance
100 years ago. Now catch him in City
Lights (1931), written by, directed by and
starring Charlie Chaplin, and praised by
filmmakers, actors and critics as one of
the greatest films ever made. The Tramp
was closely identified with the silent era,
and was considered an international char-
acter. When the sound era began in the late
1920s, Chaplin refused to make a talkie
featuring the character and City Lights has
no dialogue. City Lights marked the first
time Chaplin composed the score to one of
his productions. This masterpiece of the
silent era is presented on the silver screen
with the San Francisco Symphony per-
forming the musical score live.
Approximately one hour and 20 minutes
without intermission. 8 p.m. Saturday,
April 12. Tickets: $41-$156. www.sfsym-
phony. org. Davies Symphony Hall is
located at 201 Van Ness Ave. in San
Franciscos Civic Center. The Civic
Center BARTStation is three blocks away.
MUSICIANS. The San Francisco
Symphony rekindles the joy of music-
making with its Community of Music
Makers (CoMM) program, an initiative
that serves amateur adult musicians and
promotes active, lifelong participation in
music-making. Launched during the
Orchestras 2011-12 Centennial Season,
CoMM extends the Symphonys role by
presenting workshops and events for ama-
teur vocalists and instrumentalists in
Davies Symphony Hall, where partici-
pants improve their skills, meet fellow
musicians and receive coaching directly
from SFS musicians and artistic staff. Each
choral workshop involves four SFS
Chorus members as mentors; numerous
other SFS Chorus members serve as work-
shop volunteers. For the instrumental
workshops, 15 members of the San
Francisco Symphony serve as coaches and
mentors, allowing participants to interact
in a very personal way with the SFS musi-
cians they see on stage. Chamber music
workshops allow for intimate, in-depth
musical explorations with an SFS musi-
cian serving as a mentor for each chamber
group. Play Out, Davies! for Strings, led
by Stephen Paulson, San Francisco
Symphony Principal Bassoonist, takes
place 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Sunday, May 4.
The repertoire includes Holst: Jig from St.
Pauls Suite; Mozart: Andante from
Divertimento K.138; and Britten:
Frolicsome Finale from Simple
Symphony. Optional pre-workshop sec-
tional rehearsals are scheduled for the
evening of April 30. Information at

Actor and KGO Talk Show Host Brian
Copeland examines the uneasy relation-
ship between the law and those who grow
up believing they are above it. For his
source material, Copeland draws on one of
the most grisly events in East Bay histo-
ry. In 2000, Stuart Alexander, scion of the
Santos Linguisa Factory dynasty in San
Leandro, gunned down three meat inspec-
tors as they attempted to enter the facility
for an inspection. Alexander blamed his
crimes on the inspectors, stating that he
was provoked. Copelands fascinating
and observant narrative follows this dark
story from its innocuous start to its twist
ending. 70 minutes without intermission.

El Camino Real divides two worlds,
said Rotarian John Kelly, former
executive director at the Samaritan
Bayside is a real challenge, Kelly
said. Its the east side of town and
kids are really at risk. Established
families in San Mateo would not
understand what some of these kids
go through to survive. Survival
becomes a way of life. There are
things we took for granted like hav-
ing an environment where learning is
There needs to be a lot more pro-
grams like this so kids know they
have the talent and people are willing
to help them get there, he said.
Some parents are surviving at low-
income jobs and working two to three
jobs each, he said. Their energy to
help them (their kids) is extremely
Meanwhile, Jose Montano, an
eighth-grader in the after-school pro-
gram said he likes the community
around the group.
The workspace is quiet and its a
safe place, he said. Aclose friend of
mine is John Kelly and I really would
like to thank him for this.
Another eighth-grader Angel
Martinez said the environment is per-
fect for focusing on getting work
done free of distractions from his TV
at home. While Jocelyn Hernandez, a
sixth-grader, said its helped her get
her homework done since she plays
sports and doesnt have to do home-
work late at night instead.
Teachers are also seeing results
from the program, said seventh-grade
teacher Donna Finkelstein. Its help-
ful for students who need to redo work
and for those without access to com-
puters at home.
It has a huge impact, she said.
Its a safe and quiet place for them to
come. Its a nice way to end their day.
They zip in and we make sure to have
the materials they need to get work

PG&E, for distribution.
Line 147 provides service to more
than 650,000 customers in both San
Carlos and along the Peninsula,
according to the letter.
The upcoming inspection will also
help determine the safest operating
pressure which has been a point of
contention between the city and PG&E
since the pipeline was shut down,
reopened at a lower level and eventual-
ly increased beyond what San Carlos
The California Public Utilities
Commission in December unanimous-
ly agreed to let the line operate at the
maximum operating pressure of 330
pounds per square inch gauge.
Concern over Line 147 began in
October when city ofcials learned of
November 2012 emails by a PG&E
engineer questioning the safety of 84-
year-old gas transmission Line 147
which runs parallel to Brittan Avenue.
The former engineer suggested the city
could be another San Bruno situation
in reference to the Sept. 9, 2010, gas
line explosion and fire that killed
eight, injured dozens and destroyed 38
homes. The engineer also questioned if
hydrotesting in 2011 exacerbated
The city declared a state of emer-
gency which led to the line being tem-
porarily taken out of service.
In December, the CPUC also ordered
PG&E to pay $14.3 million for faulty
record keeping related to the San
Carlos gas pipeline.

the countys Tobacco Prevention
Program and work has been underway
for about a year and a half.
The North Fair Oaks Council and
California Association of Realtors
vetted the proposal and Groom said it
was met with approval because it con-
forms to similar bans in other areas.
The presence of such restrictions else-
where is one reason why Groom thinks
the idea will also y for San Mateo
County without much, if any, push-
To me its kind of like the plastic
bags. Its been established in other
areas. People are living with it and
most people have sort of adopted it,
she said.
The ban would be similar to one
adopted by Santa Clara County in
2010 and, closer to home, ordinances
passed by the cities of Belmont and
Daly City.
The Board of Supervisors is sched-
uled Tuesday only to study the matter
but Groom said if there are no major
concerns she hopes to get the ball
rolling on getting an ordinance before
it for a vote and implementation.
The Board of Supervisors meets 9

As part of the settlement, the
property owner will acknowledge
going forward any use of the site
needs to be consistent with R-4
(multi-family residential) zoning,
Mason said.
The city will continue to work with
7-Eleven and it has shown some inter-
est in opening a store in San Mateo if
it finds an appropriate location,
Mayor Robert Ross previously said.
Residents in the area had been vocal
about their opposition to the store,
including Jeff Gilbert who lives a few
houses down from the store. Gilbert
said hes very happy with the results
of the negotiation and thanks the city
for their diligence with the situation.
We are happy to hear most if the
employees will be able to work at a
neighboring 7-Eleven, he wrote in
an email. This process was lengthy
and at times very frustrating. David
occasionally beats Goliath and in this
case it applies. Most importantly, the
neighborhood will be safe and clear of
daily debris. We look forward to the
site being used with the proper resi-
dential coding.

Case Number: 124202
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Jean C. Tollini. A Peti-
tion for Probate has been filed by James

California, County of San Mateo. The
Petition for Probate requests that James
C. Sturdevant be appointed as personal
representative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests the decedents will
and codicils, if any, be admitted to pro-
bate. The will and any codicils are availa-
ble of examination in the file kept by the
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: March 21, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

By Rob Grifth and Kristen Gelineau
PERTH, Australia Aircraft and ships
from China headed to the desolate southern
Indian Ocean to join the search for Malaysia
Airlines Flight 370, now lost for two full
weeks, and Australia promised its best
efforts to resolve an extraordinary riddle.
Asatellite spotted two large objects in the
area earlier this week, raising hopes of nd-
ing the Boeing 777 that disappeared March
8 with 239 people on board. Three
Australian planes took off at dawn Saturday
for a third day of scouring the region about
2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles) southwest
of Perth.
Australian ofcials tried to tamp down
expectations after a fruitless search Friday,
even as they pledged to continue the effort.
Its about the most inaccessible spot that
you could imagine on the face of the Earth,
but if there is anything down there, we will
nd it, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said at
a news conference in Papua New Guinea.
We owe it to the families and the friends
and the loved ones of the almost 240 people
on Flight MH370 to do everything we can to
try to resolve what is as yet an extraordinary
riddle, he added.
A total of six Australian aircraft were to
search the region Saturday: two ultra long-
range commercial jets and four P3 Orions,
the Australian Maritime Safety Authority
Two merchant ships were in the area, and
the HMAS Success, a Navy supply ship, was
due to arrive late Saturday afternoon.
Weather in the search zone was expected to
be relatively good, with some cloud cover.
Two Chinese aircraft are expected to arrive
in Perth on Saturday to join the search, and
two Japanese aircraft will arrive Sunday. A
small otilla of ships from China is still
several days away.
AMSA ofcials also were checking to see
if there was any new satellite imagery that
could provide more information.
Abbott spoke with Chinese President Xi
Jinping, describing him as devastated.
The passengers included 154 Chinese.
In Kuala Lumpur, where the plane took off
for Beijing, Malaysian Defense Minister
Hishammuddin Hussein thanked the more
than two dozen countries involved in the
overall search that stretches from
Kazakhstan in Central Asia to the southern
Indian Ocean. He called the whole process a
long haul.
The search area indicated by the satellite
images in the southern Indian Ocean is a
four-hour round-trip flight from western
Australia, leaving planes with only enough
fuel to search for about two hours. The
images were taken March 16, but the search
in the area did not start until Thursday
because it took time to analyze them.
Searchers on Friday relied mostly on
trained spotters aboard the planes rather
than radar, which found nothing Thursday,
Australian ofcials said. The search will
focus more on visual sightings because
civilian aircraft are being brought in. The
military planes will continue to use both
radar and spotters.
Noting that we got no radar detections
yesterday, we have replanned the search to
be visual. So aircraft ying relatively low,
very highly skilled and trained observers
looking out of the aircraft windows and
looking to see objects, said John Young,
manager of the maritime safety authoritys
emergency response division.
Malaysia asked the U.S. for undersea sur-
veillance equipment to help in the search,
said Rear Adm. John Kirby, a Pentagon
spokesman. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel
promised to assess the availability of the
technology and its usefulness in the search,
Kirby said.
The Pentagon says it has spent $2.5 mil-
lion to operate ships and aircraft in the
search and has budgeted another $1.5 mil-
lion for the efforts.
Extraordinary riddle of lost jet now two weeks old
