A love of language, her students and
teaching have kept Teeka James, union
leader for the local community colleges, at
College of San Mateo for 17 years.
James is president of American Federation
of Teachers Local 1493, the faculty union
for all three colleges of the San Mateo
County Community
College District. She
teaches English compo-
sition and literature
classes at CSM and first
got her start teaching 22
years ago at Skyline
College in San Bruno.
“I didn’t grow up
thinking I was going to
be a teacher; I didn’t grow up thinking I’d be
anything in particular,” said James, who is
married with one child. “My parents both
worked in schools. I worked a little bit in
offices after college and never really liked
it; I never was drawn to business. I thought
teaching would be challenging and fun and
luckily I liked it.”
She considered being a writer and worked
for publishing companies doing editing
during graduate school at San Francisco
State University where she earned her mas-
ter’s degree in English before getting a cer-
tificate in teaching composition. The
Madison, Wisc., born James spent her
undergraduate time at William Smith
College in upstate New York.
Once interested in teaching, she initially

New focus
on human

Human trafficking’s youngest victims
now have a dedicated champion in the
county Probation Department.
Beginning last Monday, the depart-
ment committed one full-time officer to
cases involving commercially sexually
exploited children and trafficked juve-
niles. The officer takes over for two
deputy probation officers who’ve juggled those cases the
last three years alongside their normal workloads and adds
to the county’s expanding focus to tamp down these crimes,
said Chief Probation Officer John Keene.

Artists thrive on inspiration and cre-
ative collaboration, so when publicly
available art studios opened in San
Mateo last year, it’s no surprise they
were quick to fil l .

Marie Antoinette O’Brien
Marie Antoinette O’Brien, born Jan. 24,
1917, died March 26, 2014.
She was a resident of Belmont.
Marie was born in Red Deer, Alberta,
Canada. She was raised on her family’s farm
near Raeville, Neb. Marie often spoke of the
warm family life with sisters Cecilia
(Thiem) and Delores (Metz) and brothers;
Bernard, John, Joseph and Francis. She
would often recount the four-mile hike each
day to her grade school in Raeville. Marie
wanted to experience as much of life as pos-
sible, including college and nursing school,
however, those dreams were dashed by the
Great Depression where she was lucky to
find work as a seamstress and dressmaker
apprentice. Marie would meet a young man
during a summer night dance in Elgin, Neb.
His name was Tim O’Brien, he was polite,
respectful, intelligent and, in time, she
would accept his proposal in marriage and
spend the next 56 years with him until his
death in 1993. They had three sons Timothy
Jr. of San Jose, Philip of Belmont and
Randy of Boulder City, Nev. Marie died from
cancer in her home as she had wished with
family present. A private memorial service
and burial were March 31.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy has
reached a milestone: It has finally regained
all the private-sector jobs it lost during the
Great Recession.
Yet it took a painfully slow six years, and
unemployment remains stubbornly high at
6.7 percent.
The comeback figures were contained in a
government report Friday that showed a
solid if unspectacular month of job growth
in March.
Businesses and nonprofits shed 8.8 mil-
lion jobs during the 2007-09 recession;
they have since hired 8.9 million. But
because the population has grown since the
big downturn, the economy is still mil-
lions of jobs short of where it should be by
Also, government jobs are still 535,000
below the level they were at when the reces-
sion began in December 2007. That’s why
the overall economy still has 422,000
fewer jobs than it did then.
As a result, most analysts were hardly
celebrating the milestone.
Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the lib-
eral Economic Policy Institute, called it a
“pretty meaningless benchmark economi-
cally. ”
“The potential labor force is growing all
the time, so the private sector should have
added millions of jobs over the last six-
plus years,” she said.
U.S. employers did add a seasonally
adjusted 192,000 jobs in March, just below
February’s 197,000, which was revised
higher. March’s figure nearly matched last
year’s average monthly gain, suggesting
that the economy has recovered from the
hiring slowdown caused by severe weather
in December and January.
“We’re seeing sustained improvement,”
said Scott Anderson, chief economist at
Bank of the West. “But we’re not really that
much stronger than we were last year. And
we need more improvement for a stronger
economy to come into fruition.”
U.S. finally regains the jobs lost in the recession

Two tunnels found under California-Mexico border
SAN DIEGO — Two drug-smuggling tunnels with rail sys-
tems stretching hundreds of yards across the U.S.-Mexico
border were discovered by law enforcement officials, and a
73-year-old woman was charged with helping run one oper-
ation, federal authorities said Friday.
No contraband was found in connection with the tunnels,
which linked warehouses in Tijuana, Mexico, and the Otay
Mesa area of San Diego, according to a statement from U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland
Security Investigations.
The first tunnel, stretching about 600 yards, was discov-
ered Tuesday. It was described as being equipped with light-
ing, a crude rail system and wooden trusses.
The entrance on the U.S. side is inside a warehouse where
a cement cap covered a 70-foot shaft. Apulley system was
installed to hoist goods into the building, which was filled
with children’s toys and boxes of televisions.
The other tunnel, located Thursday, stretches more than
700 yards and was built with more sophisticated features
including a multi-tiered electric rail system and ventilation
On Wednesday, investigators with the San Diego Tunnel
Task Force arrested Glennys Rodriguez from the San Diego
suburb of Chula Vista.
The U.S. attorney’s office has charged her with conspira-
cy to maintain a drug-involved premises. It wasn’t immedi-
ately clear whether she had obtained an attorney.
Ex-supervisor’s sentence reduced to 30 days

San Francisco Superior Court Judge
Kay Tsenin rejected a motion by Ed Jew’s
attorneys to have the entire one-year sen-
tence served under home detention

er dose of punishment.
Tsenin ruled that Jew should spend 60
days in jail but that he can be released in
30 for good behavior. He must also serve 2,440 hours of
community service while under home detention.
Jew was sentenced in 2009 for perjury after lying about
where he lived when he ran for San Francisco office.

SAN FRANCISCO — A California
state senator and more than two dozen
other defendants have been formally
indicted in a sweeping San Francisco
political corruption and organized crime
case, officials announced Friday.
The grand jury indictment released by
the U.S. attorney’s office replaces a
criminal complaint filed last week. State
Sen. Leland Yee and 19 others were
arrested on March 26.
Yee, a San Francisco Democrat, is
accused of conspiring to connect an
undercover FBI agent with a Philippines
arms dealer in exchange for campaign
contributions, and of trading political
influence for cash.
The indictment contains the same
charges as the criminal complaint and
adds two more defendants.
A total of 29 people have been
charged in connection with the organ-
ized crime investigation centered on a
Chinatown social organization that the
FBI says is a front for a gang. It
appeared that nine defendants remained
at large.
Campaign donation records show Yee
made trips to the Philippines in 2008
and in 2012, the Sacramento Bee report-
His Senate campaign committee paid
$894 for a flight to Manila “to meet
with Filipino officials” in September
2008, the records show. Another trip in
July 2012 included a $246 payment
from Yee’s officeholder account for an
Asiana Airlines flight to Manila for
what was called a “governmental fact-
finding” trip.
The Bee also reported that Yee spent at
least $62,000 at the New Asia restau-
rant, a Chinatown eatery that FBI inves-
tigators allege hosted many events of
the Chee Kung Tong, the organization
at the heart of the case.
The senator’s new lawyer, former fed-
eral prosecutor Jim Lassart, didn’t
immediately return a phone call Friday.
Yee is free on $500,000 bond pending
trial and has not yet entered a plea. He
and most of the other defendants, includ-
ing Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, are
scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
Lawmaker, others indicted in corruption case
SACRAMENTO — A state senator
indicted on federal charges used cam-
paign money to pay for flights to the
Philippines and events at a San
Francisco restaurant, activities that
have possible links to gun-running
and bribery allegations, a newspaper
reported Friday.
Records show Sen. Leland Yee, D-
San Francisco, flew to the
Philippines in 2008 and 2012,
according to The Sacramento Bee.
Federal officials allege he tried to
coordinate a gun-running operation
from that country.
His Senate campaign committee
paid $894 in September 2008 for a
flight to Manila, while his office-
holder account paid $246 in July
2012 for a flight to Manila for a
“governmental fact-finding” trip
lasting from July 12 through July
The federal complaint quotes Yee as
telling an undercover agent in March
2014 that he had gone to Mindanao,
the southernmost island in the
Philippines, at the invitation of the
Mindanao government about two
years ago.
He also spent $62,000 at a restau-
rant that hosted many events for
what federal prosecutors say is a San
Francisco gang.
The complaint says the New Asia
Restaurant was the site for many
events hosted by Chee Kung Tong.
The government alleges that Chee
Kung Tong is a criminal organiza-
tion led by Raymond “Shrimp Boy”
Chow, who also faces federal

AG candidate: Guilty
lawmakers deserve
the death penalty
By Don Thompson
SACRAMENTO — ARepublican candidate for California
attorney general said Friday that state lawmakers who are
found guilty of crimes that endanger the lives of others
should face the death penalty.
Phil Wyman, who spent 17 years in the state Legislature,
said he was motivated by the case of Democratic Sen. Leland
Yee. Yee faces federal charges that include an attempt to
coordinate an international gun-running scheme from the
Wyman also criticized Democratic Attorney General
Kamala Harris for being “silent as a mouse” on the corrup-
tion cases that have marred the state Senate this year. Acam-
paign spokesman for Harris declined comment.
Wyman said in a news release and subsequent telephone
interview that the “most egregious” abusers of their public
office, if convicted, should be able to choose their method
of death — public hanging, firing squad or lethal injection
— as a deterrent to others.
“If they know that it’s gun-running and they know it’s
going into a terrorist organization in the Philippines, that
person earns the death penalty, and especially if they’re in
elected office,” Wyman said in the interview.
Prosecutors would not have to prove that deaths occurred,
he said; an officeholder promoting the potential for vio-
lence would be enough.
California law currently allows lethal injections for mur-
ders committed with aggravating circumstances, such as
multiple slayings or murder-for-hire. Wyman would make an
exception for corrupt politicians.
“Firing squad, at least that’s a bit more macho than get-
ting some other cocktail. Let that person choose. That per-
son’s been at the pinnacle of power. If he wants to be exe-
cuted by firing squad, let him,” he said in the interview. “I
want to discourage and teach the new generation about val-
ues — that nobody is above the law. ”
Wyman served in the state Senate from 1993 to 1994 and
in the Assembly from 1978 to 1992 and again from 2000 to
Aspokesman for Yee did not return a telephone message.
Mark Hedlund, a spokesman for Senate President Pro Tem
Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, was at a loss about how to
“How can you even respond to something that ludicrous?”
he said.
The Senate last week suspended Yee and two other
Democratic senators facing unrelated criminal charges.
Steinberg has faced pressure to expel the senators from
office, but he notes that two of the three have yet to be con-
victed of any crimes.

Fort Hood gunman had
argument with other soldiers
FORT HOOD, Texas — The Fort Hood soldier who gunned
down three other military men before killing himself had an
argument with colleagues in his unit
before opening fire, and investigators
believe his mental condition was not the
“direct precipitating factor” in the shoot-
ing, authorities said Friday.
The base’s commander, Lt. Gen. Mark
Milley, offered those details a day after
saying that Spc. Ivan Lopez’s mental con-
dition appeared to be an underlying factor
in the attack.
On Friday, Milley said that an “escalat-
ing argument” precipitated the assault. He declined to discuss
the cause of the argument but said investigators believe
Lopez made no effort to target specific soldiers — even
though at least one of the soldiers shot was involved in the
Milley would not say whether those involved were among
the dead or wounded, or how many shooting victims had been
a part of the argument.
“There was no premeditated targeting of an individual,” he
Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal
Investigation Command based in Quantico, Va., said the mil-
itary has not established a “concrete motive.”
And because Lopez is dead, he added, “the possibility does
exist that we may never know why the alleged shooter did
what he did.”
Judge to strike down part
of Ohio gay marriage law
CINCINNATI — Afederal judge said Friday that he will order
Ohio to recognize out-of-state gay marriages, a move that
would strike down part of the state’s ban on gay marriages but
stop short of forcing it to perform same-sex weddings.
Judge Timothy Black announced his intentions in federal
court in Cincinnati following final arguments in a lawsuit
that challenged the constitutionality of the marriage ban.
“I intend to issue a declaration that Ohio’s recognition
bans, that have been relied upon to deny legal recognition to
same-sex couples validly entered in other states where legal,
violates the rights secured by the 14th Amendment to the
U.S. Constitution,” Black said. “(They’re) denied their funda-
mental right to marry a person of their choosing and the right
to remain married.”
Around the nation
By Beth Garbitelli
BARRE, Vt. — State officials around the
country are rebelling over a powerful new
painkiller that law enforcement and public
health authorities fear could worsen the
nation’s deadly scourge of heroin and pre-
scription drug abuse.
On Thursday, Vermont Gov. Peter
Shumlin announced an emergency order
that would make it harder for doctors to pre-
scribe Zohydro, an extended-release drug
that contains up to five times the amount of
narcotic hydrocodone previously available
in pills.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick went
even further last week, ordering an outright
ban on prescribing and dispensing
Zohydro until it is marketed in a form that
is difficult to abuse.
Some health authorities say addicts can
too easily crush the pills and then snort or
inject the drug for a powerful and potential-
ly lethal high.
The Food and Drug Administration
approved Zohydro last fall, and it hit the
market last month.
“What puzzles all of us is the recent FDA
action to approve a new opiate that’s
stronger and likely to be even more addic-
tive because of its strength,” Shumlin said.
“Zohydro has been approved by the FDAt o
the bewilderment of many of us.”
Vermont Health Commissioner Harry
Chen said of the FDAdecision: “One might
wonder if they’re on the same planet.”
Prescription drug abuse is the nation’s
fastest-growing drug problem, with more
than 4.5 million Americans abusing pain
relievers, according to a 2013 Drug
Enforcement Administration report.
Law enforcement and public health offi-
cials say that for many people, prescrip-
tion painkiller abuse can pave the way to
heroin addiction. In January, Shumlin
devoted the bulk of his State of the State
address to Vermont’s “full-blown heroin
The backlash against Zohydro has been
growing since the FDA approved the drug
against the recommendation of an FDA
advisory committee.
Late last year, 28 state attorneys general
signed a letter asking the FDA to revoke
the drug’s approval or require the manufac-
turer to reformulate the drug to make it hard-
er to crush.
Also, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and
Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., introduced
legislation that would compel the FDA t o
withdraw the drug.
San Diego-based Zogenix, which makes
Zohydro, said that it has set up a board of
experts to guard against abuse and that its
sales representatives are not being paid
based on volume, but rather on their efforts
to ensure prescribers, pharmacists and
patients understand the medication’s risks
and benefit s.
Zohydro belongs to a family of medi-
cines known as opiates or opioids. Others
include morphine, heroin and oxycodone,
the painkiller in OxyContin.

“What puzzles all of us is the recent FDA
action to approve a new opiate that’s stronger and likely

The rich want it all
Daily Journal columnist “One-eyed
Jack” McDowell has once again
shown us his inability to see much
more than a small portion of what’s
before his eyes (John McDowell’s
column, “Soda sins,” in the March
29 edition of the Daily Journal).
Somehow only liberal Democrats
seem to be unable to resist the pull
and seduction of money and corrup-
tion. Wow — I won’t even respond
to that whopper. What does need
clarification is the level of
hypocrisy indicated. Now most
politicians say the lure of money is
an ever-present temptation, howev-
er, the Republican Party espouses
ever less government, less over-
sight and less regulation. Now
unless you walk around with welder’s
goggles on, it should be obvious
that without rule of law exercised by
government, corruption will lead us
to what we were moving toward in
the late 19th century, also known as
the “Gilded Age.” That was when
millionaires sought to control the
political process as a matter of
Teddy Roosevelt and the
“Trustbusters” appeared and the bat-
tle has continued ever since. So if
the corrupt Democrats say one thing
and do another they are indeed hyp-
ocrites. As the Republicans say and
do pretty much the same thing, then
I guess McDowell is correct. They
are not hypocrites but just doing
what will naturally follow when you
grease the rails on the road to
“Perdition.” They’re just doing what
comes naturally. Happier yet are
those who now can play in the bil-
lionaire’s sandbox due to the
whacky Supreme Court rulings

well-heeled to continue where they
left off at the turn of the 20th centu-

Letter to the editor
By Peter Grenell
eople who go to sea in small
boats, to make their living
fishing or for sport and recre-
ation, always face the risks of an
unpredictable ocean. In this age of
limited budgets and expanding mis-
sion demands, one cannot always rely
on the Coast Guard to be first on
scene in the event of a mishap. Local
harbor patrols often provide the first
line of response to search and rescue
situations, in addition to their more
routine harbor operations. There is no
substitute for this invaluable multi-
purpose role.
The San Mateo County Harbor
District’s Harbor Patrol is the first
responder for ocean search and rescue
on the San Mateo County coast. The
Harbor Patrol responds to an average
of 110 distress calls each year, made
mostly to Pillar Point Harbor in Half
Moon Bay, but also to Oyster Point
Marina/Park in South San Francisco.
This team of dedicated and highly-
trained deputies is on duty 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year. The patrol trains
and performs rescues in partnership
with the U.S. Coast Guard and other
public safety agencies including the
county Sheriff’s Office, state parks
lifeguards and fire prevention agen-
cies on the coastside and in South San
Francisco. The Harbor Patrol also
gets assistance from local fishermen
and surfers.
The Harbor Patrol responds to a
wide range of incidents including ves-
sels that take on water at sea and are
in danger of sinking; medical emer-
gencies such as heart attacks or seri-
ous injuries; inoperable boats due to
mechanical malfunctions or lack of
fuel with a risk of collision or run-
ning aground,
boats breaking
loose from moor-
ings or anchorage
and setting adrift,
vessel groundings
and missing ves-
sels — as well as
swimmers, surfers
and windsurfers in
distress. In addition, members of the
Harbor Patrol speak in elementary
school classrooms about ocean appre-
ciation and the basics of water safety.
In 1992 and 2006 respectively, rear
admirals M. E. Gilbert and J. A.
Breckenridge — then commanders of
the Coast Guard’s 11th District head-
quartered in Alameda — presented the
Harbor Patrol’s Search and Rescue
Team with public service commenda-
tions for “exemplary service to the
boating community in the advance-
ment of the Coast Guard’s mission:
Search and Rescue, recreational and
Commercial Vessel Safety and Marine
Environmental Protection.” Grateful
boaters regularly express their grati-
tude to the Harbor Patrol as well.
The Harbor District has financially
supported this major service practi-
cally from the start of its operations
at Pillar Point Harbor. Although the
district is an enterprise agency, its
search and rescue operations do not
generate revenue. Some assume that
the Coast Guard can, and should, take
over this activity from the Harbor
District, and reduce the district’s
financial burden. This is not about to
happen because of federal budget con-
straints and mission priorities. Nor
should it:
The Harbor Patrol’s job scope
includes search and rescue among a
host of harbor operations and mainte-
nance tasks. Harbor Patrol staff are
“jacks-of-all-trades” whose skills
range from repairing docks and elec-
trical equipment and managing high-
density living among live-aboard ten-
ants in the harbors to assisting in
special events and handling on-shore
public safety concerns. Those latter
two are not just for boaters. Recently,
the Harbor Patrol responded to land-
side incidents involving a baby not
breathing and an individual who was
electrocuted while attempting an elec-
trical repair.
The Coast Guard, if adequately fund-
ed, could certainly complement the
Harbor Patrol’s search and rescue
efforts to a greater extent but, it could
not, nor would it, substitute for the
daily round of responsibilities that
comprise the Harbor Patrol’s charge.
We invite the public to join us in
helping to keep our harbors safe by
reporting emergency situations and
suspicious activity, by assisting our
Harbor Patrol when the need arises
and by adding ocean appreciation to
school curricula. We all play a major
role in boating and harbor safety.
Peter Grenell is the general manager of
the San Mateo County Harbor District.
The Harbor District is an independent
special district created under state law
by the Board of Supervisors in 1933.
The district was created to build, oper-
ate and maintain harbors in the county
through its countywide jurisdiction.
Keeping people safe — by land and sea
in Sacramento
omething unprecedented happened recently in
Sacramento. National news organizations covered
it, and pundits weighed in. The consensus is that the
impact of this event could change the course of electoral
politics in California. No, I’m not talking about the crimi-
nal and corrupt Democrat state Sen. Leland Yee and his gun
Instead, I’m talking about the passage, and then the sus-
pension, of Senate Constitutional Amendment 5. SCA-5 is
the brainchild of Democrat state
Sen. Ed Hernandez, which, if
confirmed by voters, would over-
turn the education portions of
Proposition 209, passed in
Proposition 209 made it ille-
gal for the state, local govern-
ments, districts, public universi-
ties, colleges, schools and other
government institutions to dis-
criminate against or give prefer-
ential treatment to any individual
or group in public employment,
public education or public con-
tracting based on race, sex, color, ethnicity or national ori-
The California Senate debated all of 20 minutes before
passing the bill with the Democrat two-thirds super-majori-
ty voting in favor on a party-line vote. The measure was
expected to sail through the super-majority in the Assembly
as well.
Then the inconceivable happened. Voters began to pay
attention, and they didn’t like what they saw.
Racial politics is a tricky thing. In a state where the plu-
rality of residents are Latino, what are perceived as victim-
ized minority groups elsewhere can be perceived as the pow-
erful and privileged here.
When they learned more about SCA-5, California’s Asians
began to see it for what it was — an attack on them and their
rise by a numerically superior and powerful coalition of
other minority groups.
Implementation of Proposition 209 brought a stricter
meritocracy to admissions in both the UC and CSU systems.
The result has been a reduction in the percentage of black
and Latino students relative to their high school graduation
numbers. However, at the same time, those who do attend a
UC or CSU are better prepared and their graduation rates
prove it. Recent scholarship shows that black and Latino
graduation rates improved post-Proposition 209 and that
on-time college degree attainment rates have improved
slightly as well.
Concurrent with the change in Latino and black enroll-
ment under Proposition 209 has been an increase in Asians
in the UC and CSU systems. Hard work and awards based on
merit are seen as Asian cultural values and, by focusing on
the hard work and persistence needed to excel academically,
Asians have gained a prominent place on California’s cam-
puses. City Journal notes that without past discrimination
holding them back, Asians have grown to 52 percent of stu-
dents at UC Irvine, 50 percent at UC San Diego, 43 percent
at UC Berkeley, and 40 percent at UCLA. Overall, 30 per-
cent of UC students are Asian, while the state’s population
is barely 14 percent Asian.
Asians can see the future. Any artificial increase in the
numbers of Latino or black students will simply mean a
reduction in Asian students and a cap on their numbers. With
SCA-5, legal discrimination would be a two-way street.
Politicians are now making the defeat of SCA-5 a center-
piece of their campaigns. Peter Kuo, running for state
Senate in a 40 percent Asian district in the East Bay, said
that determining admission to higher education should rest
on individual merit and that the goal of SCA-5 is to elimi-
nate “the founding principle of our country, work hard and
you shall achieve.” Since focusing on this issue, donations
to his campaign have substantially increased.
This view that SCA-5 is fundamentally flawed has gained
traction in Sacramento and three Asian Democrat state sena-
tors who voted for SCA-5 asked that the bill be delayed in
the Assembly. Speaker John Perez listened and pulled the
bill (but did not kill it). Now Democratic factions are at a
standoff, with state Sen. Ricardo Lara, chair of the Latino
caucus saying that he is “committed to put something on the
ballot in 2016.”
Asian voters spoke and forced Speaker Perez to do the
unprecedented — suspend a bill that passed the Senate with a
two-thirds vote, even though his party has a two-thirds
majority in the Assembly as well. Nevertheless, if progres-
sive-liberal politicians force a similar bill through the
Legislature, Asian voters might speed their migration to the
Republican Party. And that could start to change the course
of electoral politics in California.

NEW YORK — A slump in Internet
and other technology stocks pulled
the broader market lower Friday, as
traders turned on the same companies
they flocked to earlier this year.
Google, Netflix and other pillars of
the Internet economy took a beating.
It was a bad day in an otherwise
decent week. The Standard & Poor’s
500 index ended the week slightly
Mixed signals in the government’s
monthly jobs report gave investors
little direction Friday. The govern-
ment said that U.S. employers added
more workers to their payrolls last
month, but the overall report pre-
sented a mixed picture, and the unem-
ployment rate remained at 6.7 per-
The stock market crept higher to
start, began losing steam at
lunchtime and then turned lower in
the afternoon. The jobs report wasn’t
the culprit, said Uri Landesman, pres-
ident of the hedge fund Platinum
Management. It was likely the
“momentum” traders, he said, people
who chased high-flying stocks and
are having a change of heart.
Tech stocks had soared over the
past year, pushing the Nasdaq com-
posite index up 28 percent, as traders
piled into Internet and biotechnolo-
gy companies. Netflix and Facebook,
for instance, doubled in price over
that time.
“It’s like (traders) took a look at
some of these high-flying Internet
companies and said, “How can I justi-
fy these prices?”’ Landesman said.
The technology-heavy Nasdaq
composite index plunged 110. 01
points, or 2.6 percent, to close at
4,127.73, its biggest one-day drop
since February.
The S&P 500 index fell 23.68
points, or 1.3 percent, to 1,865.09.
The Dow Jones industrial average
dropped 159.84 points, or 1 percent,
to 16,412.71.
Utilities, which investors buy to
play it safe and collect dividend pay-
ments, bucked the overall market and
edged higher. Coca-Cola, Johnson &
Johnson and other big corporations
whose stocks are often less volatile
than the broader market also made
gains. Coca-Cola climbed 15 cents,
or 0.4 percent, to $38.22.
Before the market opened Friday,
the Labor Department reported that
employers added 192,000 jobs in
March. That’s less than economists
had expected and also below
February’s total of 197,000. On the
bright side, employers added a com-
bined 37,000 more jobs in February
and January than the government
first estimated. A half-million
Americans started looking for work
last month, and many of them found
j obs.
Earlier in the week, a string of
reports on manufacturing and hiring
nudged the stock market to its record
highs. Robert Pavlik, chief market
strategist at Banyan Partners, said
many investors have argued that
tough winter weather held the econo-
my back at the start of the year and
that things would turn around as tem-
peratures rose. The jobs report,
Pavlik said, didn’t support their case.
“A lot of what people have been say-
ing about payrolls isn’t true,” he said.
Pavlik said he thinks the economy
is likely to keep plodding along.
With the market trading near record
highs, it’s hard for him to see any
good reason for stocks to climb much
In the bond market Friday, traders
pushed Treasury prices up and yields
down. The yield on the 10-year
Treasury note fell to 2.73 percent
from 2.80 percent late Thursday. The
price of crude oil rose 85 cents to set-
tle at $101.14 a barrel. Gold gained
$18.90 to close at $1,303.50 an
ounce, its biggest gain in three

WASHINGTON — Americans thinking
about buying health insurance on their own
later this year, or maybe switching to a dif-
ferent insurer, are probably out of luck. The
policies are going off the market as a little-
noticed consequence of President Barack
Obama’s health care overhaul.
With limited exceptions, insurance com-
panies have stopped selling until next year
the sorts of individual plans that used to be
available year-round. That locks out many
of the young and healthy as well as the sick
and injured, even those who can afford to
buy without government subsidies.
“Now they’re stuck,” said Bonnie Milani,
an independent insurance broker in Los
Angeles, who says she warned her cus-
tomers last year that the change was com-
ing. “It just closes everything down.”
The next wide-open chance to sign up
comes in November, when enrollment for
2015 begins in the government-run insur-
ance marketplaces created by the health care
law. Companies are following that schedule
even for the plans they sell outside the fed-
eral and state exchanges.
The health care law allows insurers to
keep selling all year. But it also creates the
conditions prompting them to stop.
The law, which requires nearly all
Americans to be insured or pay a fine, bans
insurers from rejecting customers because
of poor health. The companies say that
makes it too risky to sell to individuals
“If you didn’t have an open enrollment
period, you would have people who would
potentially enroll when they get sick and
dis-enroll when they get better,” said Chris
Stenrud, spokesman for insurer Kaiser
Permanente. “The only insured people
would be sick people, which would make
insurance unaffordable for everyone.”
The change makes individual policies
work more like the job-based plans that
already cover far more Americans.
But those who act fast may still be able to
get in this year, depending on where they live.
Following the lead of the government
marketplaces, some companies are extend-
ing off-marketplace sales for a week or a
month to help people who hit snags trying
to enroll by last Monday’s deadline. Rules
vary from state to state.
After those extensions, eligibility for
coverage during 2014 is guaranteed only for
people who experience certain qualifying
life events, such as losing a job that pro-
vided insurance, moving to a new state, get-
ting married, having a baby or losing cov-
erage under a parent’s health plan.
Insurance broker Steve Bobiak of
Frackville, Pa., said he learned only a cou-
ple of weeks ago that insurers were cutting
off new policies.
Even the healthy locked out of 2014 policies now
Samsung adding anti-theft
solutions to smartphones
Electronics will add two safeguards to its
latest smartphone in an effort to deter ram-
pant theft of the mobile devices nationwide,
the company said Friday.
The world’s largest mobile-phone maker
said users will be able to activate for free its
“Find My Mobile” and “Reactivation Lock”
anti-theft features to protect the soon-to-
be-released Galaxy 5 S.
The features that will lock the phone if
there’s an unauthorized attempt to reset it
will be on models sold by wireless carriers
Verizon and U.S. Cellular. The phones go on
sale next week.
“Samsung takes the issue of smartphone
theft very seriously, and we are continuing
to enhance our security and anti-theft solu-
tions,” the company said in a statement.

NEW YORK — Wall Street has a major
craving for takeout.
Investors sent shares of GrubHub Inc. up
more than 30 percent Friday in an initial
public offering that gave the online food
ordering service a market capitalization of
nearly $2.7 billion.
GrubHub is one of four companies to go
public Friday in what has been a very hot
IPO market, especially for businesses in the
cloud software and biotech industries. There
have been 71 IPOs priced so far this year, up
115 percent from the same time last year,
according to IPO investment adviser and
research company Renaissance Capital.
“Investors are looking for growth in a
slow-growth economy,” says Kathleen
Smith, a Renaissance Capital principal.
Smith said she is seeing signs of
investors getting more cautious, though,
after some hot debuts quickly cooled off.
One such company is Castlight Health Inc.
Shares of the cloud-based health care soft-
ware company more than doubled on their
first day of trading last month. But the stock
is now down about 50 percent from the high
of $41.95 that it reached during its March
14 debut.
Whether GrubHub can hold on to its gains
remains to be seen. The company is attrac-
tive to investors because of its potential to
grow in a new field, says Smith.
GrubHub is trying to change the way peo-
ple order takeout from restaurants. Instead
of calling in an order, people can order
meals online or through a few taps on a
smartphone app, and can search through
many restaurants at once by cuisine or other
specifications. The Chicago-based firm
makes money by taking a percentage of
each order. The company doesn’t say how
much it charges, but restaurant owners have
said it’s about 15 percent. The more that a
restaurant pays, the higher it appears in
GrubHub’s listings.
CEO Matt Maloney said most people in
the country are still ordering food with a
paper menu and a telephone call.
“It’s ridiculous,” he said. “That’s where
the growth is.”
GrubHub launched national TVcampaigns
last year to convert people to online order-
ing. The company also owns Seamless,
another online takeout company.

SAN JOSE — The resignation of Mozilla’s
CEO amid outrage that he supported an anti-
gay marriage campaign is prompting con-
cerns about how Silicon Valley’s strongly
liberal culture might quash the very openness
that is at the region’s foundation.
Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich stepped
down Thursday as CEO, just days after his
appointment. He left the nonprofit maker of
the Firefox browser after furious attacks,
largely on Twitter, over his $1,000 contribu-
tion to support of a now-overturned 2008
gay-marriage ban in California.
“There was no interest in creating an
Internet lynch mob,” OkCupid co-founder
Sam Yagun, whose dating service site was
among those engaged in online protest, said
Friday. “I am opposed to that with very bone
in my body.”
But Eich’s abrupt departure has stirred the
debate over the fairness of forcing out a high-
ly qualified technology executive over his
personal views and a single campaign contri-
bution six years ago. And it raises questions
about how far corporate leaders are allowed to
go in expressing their political views.
Some are also questioning whether the
episode undercuts the well-groomed image of
Silicon Valley as a marketplace of ideas and
diversity of thought, and whether, in this
case, the tech world surrendered to political
correctness enforced through a public sham-
ing on social media.

Burlingame had some big shoes to fill at
shortstop this season.
Graduating a pair of shortstops in Vince
Arobio and Phil Caulfield — both of
whom are now playing in college — the
Panthers turned to junior Andrew Kennedy
to take over the vital defensive position.
With an injury to Kennedy at the outset of
the season, however, Burlingame manager
Shawn Scott had to get creative. So, he
called upon another junior in Ryan
Kammuller to fill the void.
Entering into Friday night’s matchup
with Capuchino hitting .207 on the season,
Kammuller showed up big time, going 2 for
2 with a sacrifice fly and a run scored to pace
Burlingame to a 4-3 victory under the lights
at Washington Park.
“We’ve been on a two-game losing
streak,” Kammuller said. “We weren’t
doing so well. And I’ve been having a
rough last couple nights … but I saw the
ball well tonight.”
Burlingame (4-6) has had trouble getting
any kind of rhythm going this season. As of
yet, the Panthers haven’t won back-to-back
games. And they’ve missed three games
thus far due to rain.
Scott’s squad answered the call Friday
though, responding to their manager’s up-
tempo game calling from the dugout which
had Burlingame in the flow from the get-go.
Burlingame right-hander Chris Brownlow
soldiered through bouts of wildness to earn
the win, improving his record to 2-3. The
senior walked just one, but hit one batsman
and threw three wild pitches.
Cap left-hander Joe Galea took the loss.
The junior worked five inning, allowing four
runs on six hits while striking out seven.
Amazingly, Brownlow didn’t notch any
strikeouts, instead forcing Capuchino to
put the ball in play.
With the Mustangs hitting .281 as a team
this season, they continued to square up
contact Friday but managed just seven hits.
According to Cap manager Matt Wilson, it
could have been a lot more.
“We stung the ball tonight,” Wilson said.
“We hit the ball hard tonight, just right at
guys. And that’s the game of baseball.
Kammuller’s bat leads Burlingame past Capuchino
San Mateo Daily Journal Wrestler of the Year Christian Diokno won his second straight Peninsula
Athletic League championship this season in the 113-pound class.
By Nathan Mollat
El Camino wrestling coach Ray Reyes
believes Christian Diokno made the right
choice in giving up football.
Actually, as Diokno describes it, it was
basketball, not football, he was forgoing.
“I think I’m a pretty good basketball
player, but I’m probably really not,”
Diokno said.
Turns out Diokno found the perfect sport
for him: wrestling. And he does it better
than most. Wrestling between 113 and 126
pounds this season, Diokno proved to be
one of the best in the Peninsula Athletic
League, Central Coast Section and the state.
This year he won his second straight PAL
championship, finished third in the 113-
pound class at CCS and qualified for the state
tournament for the first time.
Not that any of it was easy. Not that any-
thing comes easy in the world of wrestling.
If there is one common trait among
wrestlers it’s that they relish hard work and
they look forward to a challenge. Diokno
faced — and conquered — both and in the
process became the Daily Journal’s Wrestler
of the Year.
“At first, in preseason, I was 130. It was
kind of weird, so I had to cut (weight) to get
to 126. After that, I went to 120. (Getting
to) 113 is hard,” Diokno said. “My plan
was to go to 120 this year, but at the
weight assessment, it said I could go to
113. Also, that way, my other teammate
could wrestle at 120.
“I remember thinking, ‘I can’t make
113.’ At the time, I just cut to make 126.
How am I going to make 113? It all worked
out in the end.”
Despite all the fluctuating weight, it actu-
ally might have benefited Diokno in the
long run. Wrestling at higher weights
forced him to become a better wrestler.

LOS ANGELES — Michael Morse keyed a
six-run first inning with a two-run single,
and the San Francisco Giants beat Los
Angeles 8-4 on Friday, spoiling a Dodgers’
home opener played nearly two weeks after
they began the season in Australia.
David Huff (1-0) got the victory, allowing
two hits in 1 2-3 innings of relief while
striking out three.
After retiring the first two batters, Hyun-
Jin Ryu got pummeled for six runs while
giving up six hits, including four in a row as
the Giants batted around. They finished Ryu
with two more runs in the second, extending
their lead to 8-0.
Ryu (1-1) gave up eight runs — six earned
— and eight hits while getting six outs. The
left-hander walked three and struck out two
while making his third start in six games.
He was moved up in the rotation after injured
ace Clayton Kershaw went on the disabled
list for the first time in his career with a
strained muscle in his back. Kershaw may be
out a month.
Pablo Sandoval walked, Buster Posey sin-
gled and Morse singled them in for a 2-0
lead. Center fielder Matt Kemp bobbled
Morse’s hit, allowing him to take second on
the error, and Brandon Belt singled in anoth-
er run.
Activated from the disabled list before the
game, Kemp wasn’t originally in the lineup
but was inserted after Yasiel Puig arrived late
to the ballpark and was removed from the
batting order.
Pitcher Ryan Vogelsong’s bloop single
scored Belt and Brandon Hicks after an
intentional walk to Joaquin Arias, extend-
ing San Francisco’s lead to 5-0. Angel
Pagan’s RBI single tacked on another run.
Hicks had an RBI double and Arias added

Hillsdale 4, Menlo-Atherton 1
Knights junior Adam Schembri improved
to 5-0 with a complete-game effort
Thursday. Hillsdale rallied for three in the
fourth and added an insurance run in the fifth,
totaling seven hits throughout. M-Agot on
the board in the sixth on Erik Amundson’s
first home run of the year. The senior is cur-
rently hitting .395 with a .605 slugging
percentage. With the non-league win,
Hillsdale improves to 8-3 overall. The
Bears fall to 9-3.
Cupertino 6, Carlmont 1
With the game deadlocked at 1-1 in the
sixth, Cupertino seized the advantage by
scoring five runs in the bottom of the frame.
Kyle Avvakumovits tabbed the win as the
Pioneers allowed just one hit in the contest.
Scots junior Kyle Gilbert took his first loss
of the year to fall to 1-1. Cupertino scored
one in the second. Carlmont rallied to tie it
in the fifth. Joe Pratt reached on a wild pitch
to lead of the inning then advanced to second
on a bunt by Julian Billot. Nick Thompson
followed with a bunt attempt which led to an
errant throw and Pratt crossing the plate with
the Scots’ only run of the game. With the
loss Carlmont falls to 7-6-1 overall.
Menlo 9, Leland 5
The Knights totaled 10 hits with three dif-
ferent players tabbing two hits apiece to
cruise past Leland Thursday. Jared Lucian
had three hits and three RBIs in support of
Grant Matsuda’s first varsity win. Trailing
9-3, Leland loaded the bases in the sixth but
sophomore Davis Rich soldiered through to
earn the save, his second of the year. Wi t h
the win, Menlo improves to 7-5 overall.
Sacred Heart Prep 7, South City 0
The Gators scored in all but one inning to
cruise past the Warriors in non-league play
Thursday. Danny Cody had two doubles and
sophomore Andrew Daschbach hit his first
homer of the year for SHP. Robert Larson
worked six innings to earn his first win.
Menlo-Atherton 9, El Camino 7
The Bears jumped out to an early lead and
held off the Colts in the late innings to lead
the entire way. M-A freshman Sarah
Tiemann had three legs of the cycle with a
single, double, triple and six RBIs. Erin
Goode added two RBIs in support of Emily
Katz’s ninth win of the year. The junior
Katz struck out eight en route to improv-
ing her record to 9-2. With the win, M-A
improves to 3-1 in Ocean Division play
and 9-4 overall.
ND-Belmont 15, Mercy-Burlingame 0
Tigers junior Lindsey Mifsud fired a one-hit
shutout to improve to 8-3. The game was
scoreless after two innings, but NDB got the
bats going in the final three frames, scoring
three in the third, seven in the fourth and five
in the fifth. The Tigers tabbed 16 hits in the
game. Senior Olivia Vierra was 4 for 4 with
three RBIs while Mifsud and Jennifer
Donohue each added two hits. With the win,
NDB improves to 4-1 to move into sole pos-
session of second place in West Catholic
Athletic League play, gaining a half game on
first-place Mitty (4-0 in WCAL).

Local roundup
Sometimes it falls for you, sometimes it
Scott absolutely agreed.
“They hit a lot of at ‘em balls,” Scott said.
“Their hitters did a good job of capitalizing
on balls up. We just happened to have
gloves at the other end of it. … The kids
have a lot of heart over there and it shows
the way they play the game.”
The Mustangs took an early lead in the
second. Cap sophomore Ramon Enriquez
shot a one-out double to right. Anthony
Orcholski followed with a chopper to third
that was mishandled by the Burlingame
infield, though Enriquez was unable to
advance. After a fielder’s choice off the bay
of Samuel Caliz moved Enriquez to third,
Antonio Martinucci came through with a
two-out single to left to score Enriquez, giv-
ing Cap a 1-0 lead.
Brownlow was nails by pitching out of
trouble in the fourth though. Cap got the
first two runners of the inning on base, with
Enriquez reaching on an
infield error and
Orcholski singling to
left. But Brownlow buck-
led down with three
straight outs to strand
two, keeping Cap’s 1-0
lead in check.
Galea dealt through the
first three frames for the
Mustangs. After a one-
out double to Kammuller
in the first, Galea settled in to set down
seven of the next eight batters he faced
including four strikeouts.
But in the fourth, the Panthers went large.
Kammuller again got to Galea, this time for
a leadoff single. After a failed bunt attempt
by Will Lambson — the sophomore was in
the game as a replacement after right fielder
Jonathan Engelmann left in the second with
an injury — four straight Burlingame bat-
ters reached base with a rally that didn’t
have to be.
After cleanup hitter Mitchell Swanson
scorched a single to left, Kennedy hit a
would-be double play ball to short. Instead
of getting out of the inning though, Cap
made an errant throw on the backend to
allow Kammuller to plate with the tying run
and to extend the inning.
Ryan Weeks followed with a flare to center
to score Kennedy, with Weeks moving up to
second on an errant throw to the plate.
Dominic Garcia added one more with an RBI
single that shot off the glove of a diving
attempt by Cap third baseman Rory
McDaid, giving Burlingame a 3-1 lead.
In the fifth, Burlingame added an insur-
ance run. Kaleb Keelean sparked the rally
with a bunt single to lead off the inning.
Keelean moved to second on a wild pitch
and advanced to third on a sacrifice by
Griffin Intrieri. Then Kammuller deliv-
ered a booming sacrifice fly to center to
drive home Keelean, giving the Panthers
a 4-1 lead.
“They laid down amazing bunts,” Galea
said. “They were right down the line, there
was no way we could defend them. Their guy
hit a changeup right off the end of the bat, a
[blooper] and nobody could make a play.
Then we had a couple passed balls, they
stole a couple bases, and things just kind of
fell apart.”
Cap didn’t go down without a fight
though. In the sixth, the Mustangs
answered back to close to within a run.
Galea led off with a single to right.
Orcholski followed with a one-out single to
move Galea to second. After the runners
moved up on a groundout by Caliz, Galea
scored on a wild pitch and Orcholski scored
two pitches later on a passed ball, cutting
Burlingame’s lead to 4-3.
Burlingame stuck with Brownlow though,
and the senior pitched through a one-out
single in the seventh to close it out for his
second complete game of the year. He threw
89 pitches throughout. Scott expressed
absolute faith in his starter to give him free
reign in the seventh.
“Let him have it,” Scott said. “He’s a sen-
ior. He’s earned it. He scuffled all night long
but he understands how to pitch.”
McDaid worked a scoreless sixth in relief
for the Mustangs, inducing three ground-
outs. With the depth of pitching on this
year’s Cap squad, Wilson said he feels it is
the best Mustangs pitching staff since 2005
when Jesse Orozco and Greg Gonzalez led
the team to the Central Coast Section
Division II semifinals — a feat the program
has not since surpassed.

Boxers renew
rivalry in Cuba
HAVANA — Boxers from the U.S. and
Cuba have gone glove-to-glove on Cuban
soil for the first time in 27 years in a semi-
pro World Series of Boxing clash that in
many ways resembled a big-time Las Vegas
After a reggaeton duo got the crowd
revved up Friday night, boxers entered
Havana’s Sport City arena through the haze
of smoke machines and flashing lights. In
between the action, models circled the ring
holding up round cards as huge flat-screen
displays showed replays of crunching jabs
and uppercuts.
“I am prepared for a tough match and I
want a tough match,” Mohamed Salah, a
welterweight who fights for the USA
Knockouts, said at the weigh-in. “That’s
why I am here, and I am excited to be here.
... I’m a real boxer. ”
Cuba’s entry into the 12-team interna-
tional semipro league last year marked a
major departure from more than 50 years
during which professional sports were
banned on the island. As recently as 2005,
Fidel Castro railed against the “parasites
that feed off the athlete’s hard work” when
money is involved with sports.
Red Sox receive championship rings
BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox received
their 2013 World Series championship
rings on Friday during a ceremony that also
honored victims of the Boston Marathon
bombing and two firefighters who died in a
blaze last week.
As the ceremony began before the game
against the Milwaukee Brewers, banners for
Red Sox championship teams from 1903,
‘12, ‘15, ‘16, ‘18, 2004, ‘07 and ‘13 were
lowered from the top of the Green Monster.
Family members of victims who died in
the bombing last April and survivors
walked in from the left-field wall with the
rings. John Henry and other members of
the ownership group presented them to
manager John Farrell, coaches, players and
other personnel. Then co-workers from the
same station as Lt. Edward J. Walsh and
firefighter Michael R. Kennedy walked
into center field and embraced and stood
beside the players.
Fenway Park is served
by the station, located
less than 2 miles away.
The ceremony lasted
about 50 minutes and pre-
ceded Boston’s first game
at Fenway Park since it
won the World Series
there on Oct. 30 by beat-
ing the St. Louis
Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6.
“This is a day we should all enjoy,” Red
Sox manager John Farrell said.
Dustin Pedroia was the first player intro-
duced, and David Ortiz received the loudest
ovation when he was the last player who
trotted out of the dugout to receive his ring.
He also was given a ring for being part of all
three Red Sox championship teams over the
past 10 seasons.
Former College of San Mateo outfielder
Daniel Nava received his first World Series
ring after starting in a career-high 134 regu-
lar-season games in 2013.
Mayor Marty Walsh threw out the ceremo-
nial first pitch to Ortiz.
Cabrera greets Tanaka with homer
TORONTO (AP) — Masahiro Tanaka got a
startling welcome to the major leagues
when the Japanese star gave up a home run
to Toronto’s Melky Cabrera on his third big
league pitch.
Provided a 2-0 first-inning lead by the
New York Yankees on Friday night, Tanaka
began his career with a called strike on a 93
mph fastball. Cabrera took a slider, then
sent a hanging changeup over the right-field
wall as Ichiro Suzuki, another Japanese star,
ran out of room.
Tanaka retired Colby Rasmus on a
grounder to first, getting to the bag in time
to take a relay throw from Mark Teixeira.
Tanaka followed by throwing a curveball
past Jose Bautista for a called third strike,
then got Edwin Encarnacion to strike out
swinging on a slider.
The 25-year-old right-hander went 24-0
with a 1.27 ERA last year as the Rakuten
Golden Eagles won their first Japan Series
title, then signed a $155 million, seven-
year contract with the Yankees, who paid
$20 million to Rakuten for his rights.
Ishi homers in Pirates win
PITTSBURGH— Pedro Alvarez homered
twice and scored three runs as the Pittsburgh
Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 12-2 on
Friday night.
Alvarez hit long solo shots in the second and
fourth off Shelby Miller (0-1) and broke open a
close game with a rare stolen base he converted
into a run that broke open a close game.
Travis Ishikawa added his first major
league home run in nearly two years for
Pittsburgh. Gerrit Cole (1-0) gave up two
runs in seven innings in his first start since
losing the deciding Game 5 of the NL divi-
sion series to St. Louis last October.
Ishikawa’s solo home run in the fourth
was his first since May 15, 2012 while
playing for the New York Yankees.

OAKLAND — Mariners manager Lloyd
McClendon walked toward shortstop and
his right foot sunk some two inches, caus-
ing him to turn his right ankle. That was
minor, yet everybody involved in the post-
poned game between the Seattle Mariners
and Oakland Athletics on Friday night
feared the worst if they had tried to play on
a rain-soaked field.
Even the umpiring crew deemed the condi-
tions too dangerous. McClendon had his
doubts the field could be ready for a 1:05
p.m. first pitch Saturday.
“That’s probably the worst conditions
I’ve seen in all my years in baseball. It’s
not safe,” McClendon said. “It was just a
safety issue more than anything. They made
the right decision.”
David Rinetti, A’s vice president of stadi-
um operations, said the tarp was kept off the
field overnight in an effort to let it dry out
after a week of heavy rains in the drought-
starved Bay Area but an unexpected down-
pour caused further problems and the
grounds crew worked tirelessly on the
infield dirt from 7 a.m. until the game was
called about the time of scheduled first pitch
at 7:05 p.m. A delay had previously been
“Unfortunate misinterpretation of the
forecast,” Oakland general manager Billy
Beane said.
The A’s use a weather consultant to help
make decisions during the wet weather and
regarding use of the tarp. Rinetti said one-
third of an inch of rain hit the area and the
infield was under water when officials arrived
Friday. The tarp went back on at about 4:35
p.m. when a steady rain began again.
“Over the last week we’ve had probably
more rain at the facility than we’ve had as
long as I’ve been here, which is many,
many years,” Rinetti said. “The field has
taken a significant hit all week, and we’ve
been working with a weather consultant get
as much up to date information as possible.
We had information last night that there was
going to be a break in the storm. And
because of that we wanted to use that oppor-
tunity to help dry out the field.
Unfortunately we were wrong on the amount
of rain, and we got about a third of an inch
of rain last night.”
Players on both sides decided to play one
game Saturday afternoon rather than a split
doubleheader, which will be played later.
Felix Hernandez (1-0) will start as scheduled
for Seattle against Dan Straily, who had
been set to go Friday in his season debut.
“Prepare to pitch tomorrow,” Hernandez
said. “That happens.”
Mariners athletic trainer Rick Griffin
recalled a time in Chicago in the late 90s
when Seattle played on a soggy field and
lost one player to a groin injury and anoth-
er to a pulled hamstring, prompting manag-
er Lou Piniella to tell everyone, “Nobody
run hard,” Griffin said, quoting the former
This marked Oakland’s third weather-
related game to be called off in seven days
after the preseason Bay Bridge finale
against the Giants was canceled last
Saturday. Tuesday’s game was also post-
poned by rain and made up Wednesday as
part of a day-night doubleheader.
For the Mariners, it was another strange
visit to the rundown Oakland Coliseum.
Last June 16, a clogged pipe caused a
sewage backup and flooding on the bottom
floor of the ballpark that sent the Mariners
and A’s scrambling around in towels. They
headed for higher ground, to shower in the
Oakland Raiders’ locker room.
Ahazmat crew inspected the affected areas
for E-coli and a huge cleanup operation
ensued — including the installation of new
carpeting and the removal of some lockers
in the visiting clubhouse to repair water-
damaged walls with new sheet rock and
wooden supports. In addition, new drywall
was put in about a foot above the floor.
New cabinets were needed in the visiting
training room, and a new dining table and
vanity in the nearby umpires’ room.
Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik considers the
incidents separate. He is more concerned
with playing baseball.
“It’s a dated facility, what can you say?”
Zduriencik said. “It’s unusual. Very unusual.
But they just didn’t get the tarp down is what
they said. They couldn’t get the field ready.
We’ll see what happens. They said they’ll
work on it all night and what that means,
we’ll have to see. But they have a lot of
work to do to get it ready. ”

scored 10 points for the rebuilding Kings
(27-49), who looked lost and lethargic
against their Northern California rivals.
Golden State outshot the Kings 44.7 per-
cent to 32.1 percent, which was a season
low by a Warriors’ opponent and a season
low for Sacramento. The Warriors also out-
rebounded the Kings 58-44 and forced 16
turnovers to sweep the season series (4-0)
for the first time since going 5-0 against
Sacramento in 1991-92.
“We were tentative. I thought we played
soft for long stretches,” Kings coach
Michael Malone said. “We were not aggres-
sive, we were very hesitant and they had us
on our heels.”
The Warriors crushed the Kings even
while playing without starting center
Andrew Bogut and power forward David Lee.
It was the fifth straight game Lee has missed
because of a strained right hamstring and
the fourth game in a row Bogut has sat out
with a bruise in his pelvis and groin area.
Jermaine O’Neal had 13 points and nine
rebounds, and Draymond Green added 10
points and 10 rebounds to help Golden State
outscore Sacramento 54-28 in the paint.
With Golden State’s starting big men
sidelined, the coast was clear for Cousins to
dominate down low. Instead, Sacramento’s
center picked up two fouls in the first 1:48,
Malone was called for a technical foul try-
ing to defend him and the Warriors shut
down Sacramento the rest of the quarter —
and most of the game.
The Kings started 1-for-11 shooting,
including missing 10 straight shots and
committing eight turnovers during a span of
nearly nine minutes. The Warriors whipped
the crowd into a frenzy after converting all
those turnovers into a flurry of fast-break
“It happened pretty fast, but once it start-
ed to happen, I just think guys got rattled,”
said Cousins, who spent most of the fourth
quarter on the bench with a towel over his
head. “We just never really recovered.”
With most of the team struggling and
point guard Isaiah Thomas out for the sixth
consecutive game with a bruised right
quadriceps, the Kings provided little punch
— and even less fight.
Green caught a full-court pass from O’Neal
for an uncontested layup early in the third
quarter. O’Neal put his hands in the air as if
he was signaling for a touchdown.
The Warriors went ahead 75-33 moments
later and spent most of the fourth quarter
laughing and smiling on the bench, espe-
cially after Speights’ slam.
The fewest points the Kings had scored in
a game previously this season came in a 99-
79 loss to San Antonio on March 21. ... The
fewest points the Warriors had allowed was
in a 76-74 loss to the Spurs on Nov. 8. ...
The Warriors finished 8-0 at home against
Pacific Division opponents for the first time
in franchise history.

While he may not have been winning tour-
nament titles at other weights, he was get-
ting better for the postseason.
“I think if I stayed at 113 (all season), I
probably wouldn’t have improved as much,”
Diokno said. “At 126, you’re wrestling dif-
ferent kinds of people. You learn a lot
wrestling guys who are heavier and bigger
than you. I just knew I could learn more from
losing than winning.”
Said Reyes: “He wasn’t winning tourna-
ments, he was finishing top 3. We knew he
could beat guys from 108 to 132.”
And that being said, there wasn’t a whole
lot of losing Diokno experienced. He fin-
ished the season with a record of 25-10. And
while he didn’t capture the ultimate goals of
CCS and state titles, the fact he battled to
qualify for state left Diokno satisfied.
After winning the 113-pound PALtitle, he
was the No. 4 seed at CCS. He dominated his
first two matches — winning by technical
fall 18-2 in the first round and posting a 10-
3 decision in the second round.
He came up short in the semifinals, how-
ever, dropping a 5-3 decision. Despite see-
ing his chance to win a CCS title go by the
board, Diokno’s goal of making the state
tournament was still within reach with two
more wins.
“(Falling short of the finals) could either
[make you hungrier] or you can be OK with
it,” Reyes said. “He was down by the fact he
didn’t make the finals, but it never stopped
him from knowing state was his ultimate
goal. He didn’t feel sorry for himself.”
Said Diokno: “After I lost in the semis, I
was kind of disappointed because I knew I
could beat that guy. But last year, I didn’t
even place in CCS. You gotta build yourself
back up (for the consolation round) in about
half an hour. ”
Which is exactly what he did. He crushed
his opponent 13-6 in a consolation match
to advance to the third-place match — where
the winner would receive the weight class’
third and final spot in the state tournament.
Diokno prevailed, 7-2.
Only a junior, Diokno still has one more
year to accomplish all his individual goals.
But he also realizes there is a team aspect to
wrestling and he wants to help keep El
Camino on the high school wrestling map.
“He’s very good on seeing the big picture,”
Reyes said. “I think he believes he’s carrying
the light for us (as a team). He’s fired up and
ready to roll. Sometimes it’s hard for little
guys to take on that (leadership) role. But he
definitely a lead-by-example guy.”
“I always try to do my best in every sin-
gle match and just keep getting better, ”
Diokno said. “My goal this year was to get
to state, to be the best I can to win state.
Just improving every day and getting my
team better. ”

Giants’ Bruins
A well-travelled college pitcher, Huff
played at three colleges in three years from
2004-06 before landing at UCLA as a junior
transfer. The lefty played at Cypress Junior
College as a sophomore after his freshman
season at UC Irvine.
With the Bruins in
2006, Huff emerged as
the workhorse of the
starting rotation, post-
ing a 7-4 record while
ranking second in the
Pac-10 with 129 innings
pitched. The top five
pitchers in the category
included Oregon State’s
Jonah Nickerson (136),
Oregon State’s Dallas
Buck (128), Stanford’s Greg Reynolds (127)
and Washington’s Tim Lincecum (125).
Also in Bruin in 2006 was a freshman
Brandon Crawford. Left-hander Paul
Osegura, a former Giants farmhand , was
also drafted out of UCLA by the Giants as a
16th round pick in ’06.

GENEVA— Roger Federer eased to victo-
ry over Mikhail Kukushkin on Friday,
bringing Switzerland level at 1-1 with
Kazakhstan in the Davis Cup quarterfinals.
Federer’s 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 win in less than
two hours restored order for the 15,000
Swiss fans who saw Australian Open cham-
pion Stanislas Wawrinka surprisingly lose
the opening singles match.
“I was very satisfied with my perform-
ance,” Federer said. “It doesn’t change in
terms of being 1-0 up or down — I have to
make sure I played my match.”
Wawrinka, ranked No. 3 after his first
Grand Slam title, was beaten 7-6 (5), 6-2,
3-6, 7-6 (5) by 64th-ranked Andrey
Federer and Wawrinka, doubles champi-
ons at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, are
scheduled to team up Saturday against
Kazakh doubles pair Aleksandr
Nedovyesov and Evgeny Korolev.
“Clearly I am available if (captain)
Severin (Luethi) wants me to play,” Federer
said after beating the 56th-ranked
The winner will face Britain or Italy in
the semifinals in September. Italy leads 1-0
after a rain-affected first day, though Andy
Murray leads Andreas Seppi 6-4, 5-5 in a
singles rubber which will resume Saturday.
Switzerland is aiming to reach its first
semifinal since 2003 in pursuit of a first
Davis Cup title.
Wawrinka received a
huge ovation stepping
on court at the Palexpo
indoor arena for his first
match in Switzerland
since becoming a Grand
Slam champion in
However, there was a
stunned near-silence
when Golubev converted his sixth match
point with an overhead winner.
The third-ranked Wawrinka acknowledged
starting “a little bit tight, a little bit nerv-
“When I’m in that position I know that I
don’t move so well,” he said, after making
70 unforced errors and converting just one
of his 10 break points.
The Swiss No. 1 also smashed his racket
on the hard-court surface in frustration dur-
ing the second set.
Golubev, who lost to Wawrinka in the
first round in Australia, overcame his early
nerves to win a first-set tiebreak.
“I tried to be always aggressive, didn’t
give him too much time,” he said.
Wawrinka, who played in a 5-0 loss
against Kazakhstan in 2010, said the heav-
ily favored Swiss would not be complacent.
“We didn’t come here thinking it was
going to be an easy tie,” he said.

KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan police
commander opened fire Friday on two
Associated Press journalists, killing
Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Anja
Niedringhaus and wounding veteran corre-
spondent Kathy Gannon — the first known
case of a security insider attacking journal-
ists in Afghanistan.
The shooting was part of a surge in vio-
lence targeting foreigners in the run-up to
Saturday’s presidential elections, a pivotal
moment in Afghanistan’s troubled recent
history that promises to be the nation’s first
democratic transfer of power.
Niedringhaus, 48, who had covered con-
flict zones from the Balkans in the 1990s to
Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, died instantly
of her wounds.
Gannon, 60, who for many years was the
news organization’s Afghanistan bureau
chief and currently is a special correspon-
dent for the region, was shot three times in
the wrists and shoulder. After surgery, she
was in stable condition and spoke to med-
ical personnel before being flown to Kabul.
Niedringhaus and Gannon had worked
together repeatedly in Afghanistan since the
2001 U.S.-led invasion, covering the con-
flict from some of the most dangerous
hotspots of the Taliban insurgency. They
often focused on the war’s impact on Afghan
civilians, and they embedded several times
with the Afghan police and military, report-
ing on the Afghan government’s determina-
tion to build up its often ill-equipped forces
to face the fight against militants.
Gannon, who had sources inside the
Taliban leadership, was one of the few
Western reporters allowed into
Afghanistan during the militant group’s
rule in the 1990s.
The two journalists were traveling in a
convoy of election workers delivering bal-
lots in the eastern city of Khost, under the
protection of Afghan security forces. They
were in their own car with a translator and an
AP Television News freelancer waiting for
the convoy to move after arriving at the
heavily guarded security forces base in east-
ern Afghanistan.
Aunit commander identified by authorities
as Naqibullah walked up to the car, yelled
“Allahu Akbar” — God is Great — and fired
on them in the back seat with his AK-47,
said the freelance videographer, who wit-
nessed the attack, which left the rear door of
the car riddled with bullet holes. The officer
then surrendered to the other police and was
While there have been repeated cases in
recent years of Afghan police or military
personnel opening fire on and killing inter-
national troops working with the country’s
security forces, Friday’s attack was the first
known insider shooting of journalists.
Past attacks have been carried out by sus-
pected Taliban infiltrators or Afghans who
have come to oppose the foreign presence
in the country. At their worst, in 2012, there
was an average of nearly one a week, killing
more than 60 coalition troops and prompt-
ing NATO to reduce joint operations with
Afghan forces.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid
denied responsibility for Friday’s attack.
Khost Provincial Police Chief Faizullah
Ghyrat said the 25-year-old attacker con-
fessed to the shooting and told authorities
he was from Parwan province, northwest of
Kabul, and was acting to avenge the deaths
of family members in a NATO bombing
there. The claim could not be corroborated
and officials said they were still investigat-
ing the shooter’s background.

her after recovering in 2008 from years of
debilitating migraine headaches that left her
suicidal, Im opted to pass up a return to her
pharmacist career and give back. She just
wasn’t sure how or where.
She’d always felt compassion toward
women and the impoverished but still didn’t
have a clear focus until she attended a 2009
human trafficking conference and found her
calling. Im also began dreaming of some
type of shelter although she didn’t know
what it meant. She finally put it together
after learning that no place existed to house
human trafficking victims outside of jails
and juvenile halls. Rape and domestic vio-
lence victims had short-term options but not
those who had been prostituted or otherwise
exploited and often needed services and care
beyond what existing shelters provided.
She went home to tell her husband.
“We need to buy a house,” she said.
He was a bit taken aback at first, she con-
ceded, but his deep faith in God and his wife
gave him his answer.
“If we don’t do it, who will?” Im recalls
him saying.
With little more than their own money,
Im’s training from conferences and the
desire to help women with few other
options, she started the nonprofit Freedom
House. In August 2010, Im opened The
Monarch at an undisclosed San Mateo
County location and just earlier this year the
six-bed “The Nest” which serves juvenile
girls ages 12 to 17 in Santa Clara County.
Both homes are purposely decorated to
resemble a typical residence rather than a
shelter or more institution-like setting.
Couches. Handmade quilts. Definitely no
bunk beds.
“We’re giving them the home they never
had,” she said.
At The Monarch, clients receive basic
needs like clothing, food and shelter and
also the less tangible building blocks to a
new life like therapy, life skills and learning
that there is more to life — and their worth
— than prostituting themselves to make
money for someone who oftentimes claims
to be a loved one.
One survivor in her mid-20s never had a
birthday party. When the house threw her
one, she cried and didn’t immediately under-
stand the celebration was for her.
Some clients leave and return to their
abuser. One woman did so but after yet
another beating at his hands, came back.
She said she needed to know if he loved her,
Im remembered. Now that woman is a suc-
cess story.
The stories aren’t all of prostitution.
Some human trafficking victims are used as
domestic labor. Another stereotype is that
victims are female. Boys and bisexual men
are also in the mix, Im said.
Clients can stay an average of 18 months,
sometimes longer, and leave when they can
be independent or reunite with a safe family
The Nest aims to provide a similar safety
net for juveniles although Im said state certi-
fication requirements prove challenging,
particularly for those in the county system.
Currently, The Nest has five beds set aside
for this population but cannot house them
because the certification isn’t yet in place.
This is particularly hard, she said, because
many of the victims get placed in the system
after they or their abusers are arrested. Once
in, they cannot get out without somewhere
else to go.
Im said she’s reached a place, too, where
she realizes she can’t save every victim who
needs help. There are too many and only one
of her. But she is taking care of everybody
she can even if among those cases success
isn’t 100 percent.
“It’s one life at a time,” she said.
Advocates and officials like Assemblyman
Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, who
honored Im as District 22’s Woman of the
Year, credit the success of Freedom House
and in part greater notice of trafficking
issues to Im. She credits her success to “a lot
of little miracles.”
In person, Im, 52, is passionate about her
cause despite claims of actually being an
“But I know I need to be the voice of the
speechless,” she said.
Freedom House receives no federal or state
funding so must cover The Monarch’s
$450,000 annual budget through donations
and fundraisers like the fifth annual gala
planned May 17. The gala will include
music, a charity auction and a keynote
speech by journalist Julian Sher, author of
Somebody’s Daughter: The Hidden Story of
America’s Prostituted Children and the
Battle to Save Them. The program will also
mark the debut of a Monarch graduate who is
now an advocate.
The Freedom House Fifth Annual Gala is

came from Alameda County with the idea of a
dedicated officer in mind. March 31 marked
the fruition of that goal which Keene said
took about six months of restructuring to
create the space. He’s funding the new spot
out of his existing budget.
“I believe in this enough to put my money
where my mouth is,” Keene said.
The officer will serve as probation’s repre-
sentative on local and nationwide task
forces while also handling the individual
cases of young girls and boys who need to be
treated like the victims they are rather than
criminal perpetrators, Keene said.
It is estimated that 100,000 children
nationwide are at risk of being trafficked
annually. In San Mateo County, since 2011,
the Probation Department has served 23
wards of the court who were commercially
sexually exploited children. Of these, 12
admitted to being prostituted, three were
charged with prostitution and five had other
CSEC-related arrests.
Part of the county’s new push to combat
human trafficking and Keene’s desire for a
focused officer includes educating the public
about who these victims actually are.
Although the stereotype is often a female
from another country, young boys also fall
victim and 90 percent of victims of both
genders hail from the United States.
“It’s not what you think of,” Keene said.
“The more we can inform the public, the
more they can help us get these young peo-
ple back. The more we can emphasize these
young boys and girls are victims, the more
we can really attack it on a larger level.”
With the dedicated officer, Keene said his
department is ready to deliver a coordinated
response to cases that treat the victims and
hold their abusers criminally accountable.
The majority of the victims aren’t even
Bay Area residents but are instead part of a
larger network of children moved up and
down the state and even across state lines,
Keene said.
Without counties connected and sharing
information, it can be challenging to know
just how deep they’re in.
Keene said one example was a girl who
they found had multiple cases in multiple
“What we found was staggering,” he said.
One challenge has been where to house
victims. There are few community options,
particularly for minors, and Keene said keep-
ing them at the Youth Services Center is a
matter of safety away from their traffickers
and the environment in which they were
exploited. However, he would like to see
that change in the long term.
“I don’t believe the juvenile hall is the
end-all, be-all to solve these problems. It is
certainly not ideal and I’d love to see more
safe homes and more local options,” he said.
But for now, San Mateo County is still on
the more progressive side of tackling human
trafficking, he said.
“We’re very fortunate here to be so further
along in this conversation than in many
jurisdictions,” Keene said.
In mid-March, countywide law enforce-
ment joined U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San
Mateo, to announce a new protocol for
human trafficking which establishes uni-
form guidelines for first responders, officers
and anyone else handling the cases. For
example, 911 dispatchers are to give human
trafficking calls the same priority as other
life-threatening incidents and mandates offi-
cers not consider the alleged victim’s citi-
Like Keene’s goal, the protocol is aimed at
treating victims as such rather than crimi-
nals them-
selves and
get them the
medical care and social services they need
rather than simply incarceration.
The protocol itself came on the heels of
the state enacting legislation requiring
informational posters in several establish-
ments including airports, train stations,
truck stops, emergency rooms and urgent
care centers, farm labor contractors, mas-
sage parlors and adult stores. The multi-lan-
guage fliers include information about traf-
ficking and a hotline for the National Human
Trafficking Resource Center and the
California Coalition to Abolish Slavery and
Keene said the contact information on the
fliers are the best option for reporting sus-
pected victims or suspicious activity.
Looking forward, Keene also has a long-
term vision for creating something akin to a
safety net for these victims — both those
who are still minors and younger adults who
started out their path as trafficked or exploit-
ed children.

Resource Center at (888) 373-7888 or the

This movie, “Wadjda,” takes place in

who wants nothing more than a green bike

Wadjda is not allowed to get a bike
because proper girls did not do such “boy
things” to disgrace themselves.
Though she earns the money herself,
Wadjda is actively prevented by all the
women in her life from buying the bike,
because of the fear that no man will marry
her. If a woman willingly follows the gen-

Atemperamental, egotistical, British ex-
con with a soft side for the daughter he left
behind, Jude Law is magnetic as the title
character in “Dom Hemingway,” an amusing
tale of vengeance, debauchery and redemp-
tion told stylishly by writer-director
Richard Shepard.
Dom is introduced shirtless while deliver-
ing a verbose rant about his genitalia,
which he likens to titanium, a Renoir or
Picasso painting, a Nobel Prize winner, a
cheetah, lightning and more. Few outra-
geous comparisons are spared.
His speech could be seen as a pathetic
attempt at a pick-up technique, except he’s
so puffed up. It’s clear he could care less
whether anyone agrees with him or not —
and his delusion is hilarious. His mono-
logue sets the outlandish tone for the film,
where Dom, a safecracker, believes he’s
irresistible and indestructible.
Fresh out of prison after serving 12 years,
so reads the first of many chapter cards,
Dom is more than ready to make up for lost
time. After binging on booze, cocaine and
hookers, he and his partner-in-crime,
Dickie Black (an amusingly dry Richard E.
Grant), head to the lavish home of his boss,
Mr. Fontaine (the equally charming and
ruthless Demian Bichir). Dom refused to rat
out the crime boss and he’s come to collect
for his good deed. But before he can walk
away with his hefty gift, a brush with death
— effectively displayed in slow motion —
leaves him empty-handed.

NEW YORK — Errol Morris spent more
than 30 hours interviewing Donald
Rumsfeld. He sifted through thousands of
memos — “snowflakes,” Rumsfeld called
them — from the former secretary of
defense and architect of the Iraq war.
Yet at the conclusion of so much investi-
gation into the mind of Rumsfeld, Morris
says he’s left with nothing but the grin of a
Cheshire Cat. Morris calls his latest, thick-
ly ironic documentary, “The Unknown
Known,” a “fable” about a man stuck “in
some Looney Tunes world of his own devis-
“The Unknown Known,” which opens in
theaters Friday, is in stark contrast to
Morris’ Oscar-winning documentary “The
Fog of War,” about another wartime secre-

NEW YORK — Jimmy Fallon’s
fast start replacing Jay Leno on
the “Tonight” show the past two
months had a secondary effect:
David Letterman suddenly seemed
The Top 10 list, the ironic
detachment, even the set at the Ed
Sullivan Theater. Time doesn’t
stop for comedy legends, or super-
stars of any sort. Letterman, who
announced Thursday that he will
retire from late-night television
sometime in 2015, had to feel it.
CBS now faces the challenge of
moving on in a reordered late-
night world at a time the two
Jimmys — NBC’s Fallon and
ABC’s Kimmel — have a signifi-
cant head start.
When Jay Leno left in February,
Letterman lost his foil — the man
whose victory in the competition
to replace Johnny Carson two
decades ago he never let go. Leno
was someone who spoke his lan-
guage, though, a generational
compadre, and when he left,
Letterman was alone.
Fallon and Kimmel have a differ-
ent style, more good-natured and
less mocking of the entire concept
of a talk show.
It’s hard to know what role the
new competition played in
Letterman’s decision. His last
contract extension, signed before
Fallon took over, was for one
year. In the past, he’s done multi-
year extensions.
The first time Leno left late-
night, Letterman ascended to the
throne. Not this time. Since
Fallon began at “Tonight,” his
show has averaged 5.2 million
viewers, while Letterman has
averaged 2.7 million and Kimmel
2.65 million, the Nielsen compa-
ny said. Last year Letterman aver-
aged 2.9 million and Kimmel 2.5
million, so the direction was
Much of late-night now is about
making an impression in social
media, or in highlight clips that
people can watch on their devices
and spread around the next day.
Fallon and Kimmel have excelled
in spreading their comedy beyond
their time slots; Letterman has
barely bothered.
Late-night television is a far dif-
ferent world than when Letterman
and Leno began their competi-
tion. There are more entertain-
ment shows to choose from, with
personalities like O’Brien,
Arsenio Hall, Jon Stewart,
Stephen Colbert and Chelsea
Handler working every night.
CBS will first have to decide
whether or not to continue with an
entertainment program in that
time slot. It’s not the money-
maker it once was, but chances are
the network will continue in that
The first in-house candidate
would be Craig Ferguson of “The
Late Late Show,” which currently
airs at 12:35 a.m. on CBS and is
produced by Letterman. But
Ferguson’s star has dimmed, his
show quickly passed by in the rat-
ings by Seth Meyers on NBC, and
he is considered an unlikely
Amonth ago, Kimmel was asked
by TV Guide magazine whether he
would be interested in succeeding
Letterman, and he didn’t shoot
down the idea.
“I’d definitely consider it,”
Kimmel said. “I am loyal to ABC
and grateful to them for giving me
a shot. I was a guy from ‘The Man
Show’ when they put me on. I’m
not looking to flee. But just get-
ting a call from Dave would be big
for me. So it’s definitely some-
thing I would listen to.”‘
Could Leno come back? He’s not
the retiring type, but he would
Letterman’s departure will reshape late-night
David Letterman’s replacement will face a real challenge with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel,who seem to have
set up a bicoastal rivalry for years to come.Fallon is now king of the East Coast,and Kimmel currently rules out West.

Reverse Mortgage -Te Line of Credit Tat Grows
One of the most overlooked benefts of the
Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is
the growing line of credit. This unique feature
allows for your unused line of credit balance to
increase over time. The growth rate on the
unused portion in the line of credit is deter-
mined by the current interest rate on the loan
plus 1.25%. For example, if the current rate is
2.25%, the growth rate will be 3.50%. If the
interest rate on the loan increases, so will the
growth rate on the line of credit, so more funds
become available to the homeowner.
A reverse mortgage is a loan that enables
homeowners 62 or older to borrow against the
equity in their home, without having to give up
title, or take on a new monthly mortgage
payment. The money received can be used for
any purpose. The loan amount depends on the
borrower’s age, current interest rates, and the
value of the home. Homeowner must remain
current on property taxes and insurance. A
reverse mortgage does not have to be repaid
until the borrower sells or moves out of the
home permanently, and the repayment amount
cannot exceed the value of the home. After the
loan is repaid, any remaining equity is distrib-
uted to the borrower or the borrower’s estate.

PLATEAU. The 130,000 square miles of
the geologic area known as the Colorado
Plateau sweep over large portions of north-
ern Arizona, western Colorado, northwest-
ern New Mexico and southeastern Utah,
holding spectacular eroded canyons (includ-
ing the Grand Canyon) and river narrows
(the roaring Colorado River and its tributar-
ies). The frontier-flavored city of Flagstaff
sitting at an altitude of 6,900 feet on the
southwest edge of this uplifted region, is a
traditional portal to the Plateau and an ideal
stop for visitors wanting to learn about the
life in the high desert.
ZONA. The natural and human history of
the Colorado Plateau is set out with style
and clarity in Flagstaff’s Museum of
Northern Arizona (MNA), whose nine per-
manent galleries cover an arching timeline
that embraces the Jurassic (dinosaurs) to
Gen Y (contemporary fine arts). The
Museum was founded in 1928 by zoologist
Dr. Harold S. Colton and artist Mary-
Russell Ferrell Colton, Philadelphians who
came to Flagstaff in 1926. The Coltons
wanted to inspire a sense of love and
responsibility for the beauty and diversity
of the Colorado Plateau. They saw the muse-
um as a way to preserve local Native
American artifacts and natural history spec-
imens close to their sites of origin, coun-
tering the then usual practice of shipping
acquisitions to out-of-area museums and
repositories. Because of the Coltons’ fore-
sight and personal dedication, visitors
today enjoy imaginative and informative
displays drawn from the 600,000 artifacts
in MNA’s collection.
Longtime Flagstaff resident and MNA
Docent Norman Mayes said: “People come
from the four corners of the world to this
museum because of its unique emphasis on
the cultural and natural histories of the
Colorado Plateau. It has been my experience
that they are drawn to the amazing geologi-
cal landscapes and the history of the cul-
tures that populated this area over the last
10,000 years or so. As we tour the museum
with them, they are fascinated with the
story of how creative the mind of prehis-
toric man was in utilizing the resources of
this sometimes unforgiving land and how
his descendants continue that tradition,
merging the spirituality of the land with the
practicality of their existence.”
The Museum of Northern Arizona is set in
creekside trees at 3101 North Fort Valley
Road in Flagstaff. The Museum shop fea-
tures an extensive inventory of hand-forged
silverwork jewelry, Hopi Katsina (or
“Kachina” in English) dolls, Navajo rugs,
Zuni Fetish carvings, hand-coiled Pueblo
pottery and Southwestern baskets. The
bookstore specializes in subjects about the
Colorado Plateau. For more information

STREET. A vibrant local art community
finds expression in the galleries and shops
on North San Francisco Street, just off
Route 66 in the historic center of downtown
Flagstaff. On the first Friday of each month,
locals and out-of-towners gather as these
businesses remain open from 6 p.m.-9 p.m.
with special exhibitions, performances and
live music. One block away is the venerable
Hotel Weatherford (opened on New Year’s
Day 1900) where Thomas Moran, the great
painter of the American West, stayed while
he sketched the Grand Canyon just 75 miles
away. Moran and his work were influential
in convincing President Theodore
Roosevelt to declare the site a National
Monument and by 1919 Congress had
established Grand Canyon National Park.
Moran’s large-scale watercolor “The Grand
Canyon,” painted to commemorate Arizona
statehood in 1912, hangs in a prominent
public space in the Weatherford.

involve war, the terrible loss of life, the
destabilization of entire areas of the world.
Both Iraq and Vietnam for me — I came of
age during the Vietnam War — and not to
minimize the death and destruction, but
part of it for me was the destruction of an
idea about America.
AP: Though you’ve done consi der-
abl e research, t hi s i s — l i ke many
of your movi es — a f i rst - person
f i l m. You seem t o bel i eve st ro n g l y
i n the power of t he i nt ervi ew t o
unl ock myst eri es.
Morri s: It can be, in part — and this
has always fascinated me — an interior
monologue. It’s not quite interior because
it’s being spoken. A friend of mine years
ago said to me, “You can’t trust anyone
who doesn’t talk a lot because how else
would you know what they’re thinking?”
Well, maybe that’s true, maybe it isn’t .
But how people describe themselves is a
powerful way in. It’s a powerful way in to
figuring out how they see the world, who
they are.
AP: In the 1970s, you i ntervi ewed
Ed Gei n, t he i nspi rat i on f or
“Psycho, ” at a psychi at ri c hospi t al
i n Wi sconsi n, and you made your
fi rst fi l m about a pet cemetery.
What drew you to such subjects?
Morri s: My father, who was a doctor,
died when I was very, very young. I was
not even 3 years old when he died. I don’t
remember him. Everybody would tell me
stories about my father. There were pic-
tures of my father everywhere around the
house. Many of the stories were contradic-
tory. There’s a mystery, a really powerful
mystery about someone you can’t remem-
ber but who was such a central part of your
life. I think there were a lot of ingredients
there. Concern with the past. My project
on Ed Gein was and still will be (titled)
“Digging Up the Past.”
AP: You seem t o have an obsessi ve
nature .
Morri s: I have these twin obsessions,
I’ll fess up: pursuit of truth and the avoid-
ance of truth. A lot of people have said,
“Why bother examining this? It’s over and
done with.” I don’t agree with that senti-
ment at all. I think it’s really important to
examine it. There’s probably more to be
learned from untruth than truth, from false
belief than from true belief. Maybe there’s
more to be learned from nonsense than
from non-nonsense.
AP: How would you compare “The
Fog of War” and “The Unknown
Morri s: (Rumsfeld) gave me a lot of his
time. He probably would have given me
even more. He’s charming. I like him. And
yet in the end, there’s this “but...” that
hangs at the end. In the end, I’m left frus-
trated, dissatisfied and I would have to con-
fess angry. He should be able to do better,
and the fact that he was not, given every
opportunity to do it, is really frightening.
If people want to think of this as my fail-
ure to properly interview Donald
Rumsfeld, I would say it’s Donald
Rumsfeld’s failure to be properly inter-
viewed by me.

Morri s: In the end, I think it’s vanity.
Total self-confidence. You could call it a
kind of fearlessness. I spent 20 hours with
Robert McNamara, who was far less coop-
erative than Rumsfeld, far more difficult.
But I was dealing with such a different kind
of man, really couldn’t be any more unlike
Rumsfeld. Aman reflective and regretful. A
man trying in some way to reckon with his
past. And then on the other hand, with

probably take a snack break during the
“foreign films” category of the Oscars.
Many of us haven’t even heard of the nomi-
nated movies or choose not to watch them,
assuming their story lines to be too elitist
for our liking.
However, this film changed my perspec-
tive. Excellent new movies are being made,
and they are shattering traditional gender
First of all, “Wadjda” is the first movie to
be shot by a Saudi woman, Haifaa al-
Mansour. As a woman living in an extreme-
ly conservative region of the world, al-
Mansour faced many obstacles, including a
lot of hate mail for making a short film
questioning the practice of women cover-
ing their faces in public. As a result, she
wasn’t able to secure the financial backing
and filming permission for “Wadjda” for a
long time. These hurdles and her insistence
on filming the whole movie in Saudi Arabia
only for authenticity pushed back the work
by five years.
In fact, some of the filming took place in
such conservative regions that the men and
women behind the scenes had to stay sepa-
rated and use walkie talkies to keep in con-
tact because it would have been scandalous
to be seen together.
I always knew that women in different
societies may have subservient roles;
however, it took al-Mansour’s portrayal of
the misogynistic society Wadjda lived in
and the inability of a woman to be much
without a man for me to see in just how lit-
tle of a bubble American audiences live.
It is important to note that Wadjda’s hur-
dle is a relatively small one compared to
those of adult women. For example, gender
inequality is represented in Wadjda’s moth-
er’s constant anxiety to impress her hus-
band and be the most beautiful woman for
him, just so he does not leave her to take
another wife, or with the public shaming of
a young woman for speaking to a man who
was not her brother.
This is not to say that life for women in
the United States is always perfect. Closer
to home, I know teenage girls gets trapped
into prostitution (yes, in this United States
of America) and are beaten and forced to
become drug addicts by their pimps.
However, after watching “Wadjda” and
knowing that other such movies (such as
Hindi-film Gulaab Gang) are being made, I
now have the hope that by shedding light
globally on gender inequality issues, we
are taking the right steps to bridging the

Broke, bloody and liquored up, Dom
shows up at his daughter’s doorstep hop-
ing she’ll welcome him with open arms.
But Evelyn (Emilia Clarke of “Game of
Thrones” as a redhead), now living with
her significant other and their son, is less
than impressed with her father. And so
begins his quest to win back her affection,
while dipping back into a life of crime to
try to make a bit of change. Luckily, he’s

Dom is one of Law’s richest roles yet. He
packed on an extra 20 pounds and rocked
thick lamb-chop sideburns for this one.
He’s brazenly comical, absurdly grimy and
believably brawny. But at times, his Dom
is ridiculously unsympathetic. We’re with
him when he bloodies the face of a man who
romanced his wife during his jail sentence.
But when we discover that man cared for her
as she died of cancer, it’s impossible to
continue to applaud his assault.
As Dom is unable to piece his life back
together, especially where Evelyn is con-
cerned, his snarling arrogance subsides and
he begins to succeed at getting us to feel
sorry for him. We also take cues from his
adorable grandson (Jordan A. Nash), who
seems content just sitting next to Dom.
The same writer-director behind the crime
comedy “The Matador,” Shepard writes with
rousing wit, but occasional scenes tend to
drag and feel excessive. Still, he’s at his
best when giving Dom lines like, “I only
use a gun to hold up a place.Or threaten
someone.Or rob ‘em.Or pistol whip ‘em.Or
scare ‘em. But no, no hunting.”
It’s the film’s humor that also makes Dom
likable. Many of the blows to his ego are
due to his droll naivety. But it’s a good look
for Law, who checks his pretty boy image
at the door to give one of his grittiest per-
formances yet.
“Dom Hemingway,” a Fox Searchlight
Pictures release, is rated R by the Motion
Picture Association of America for “sexual
content, nudity, pervasive language, some
violence and drug use.” Running time: 93

Handler has let it be known that she’s
ready to end her show on the E! network. A
broadcast network gig again would be a
step up for O’Brien. Colbert and Stewart
both are considered major talents and CBS
would be much more high-profile than
Comedy Central. John Oliver is about to
start a new late-night show on HBO.
The question is whether those personali-
ties would have too narrow an appeal for
CBS, which is the broadest of the broad-
cast networks and would likely be looking
for someone with wide appeal. Remember,
many in TV considered O’Brien’s
“Tonight” show tenure a failure because
his appeal was too limited.
Another possibility could be Drew
Carey, a hit on CBS daytime with “The
Price is Right” who recently traded jobs
for a day with Ferguson.
Another possible decision for CBS is
whether to move the New York-based “Late
Show” to Los Angeles, now that “Tonight”
has moved back to New York after decades
on the West Coast. Los Angeles Mayor
Eric Garcetti wasted no time on Thursday
in firing off an open letter to CBS boss
Leslie Moonves, encouraging him to relo-
cate “Late Show” to LA.
Wherever they’re located, Letterman’s
replacement will face a real challenge with
Fallon and Kimmel, who seem to have set
up a bicoastal rivalry for years to come.
Fallon is now king of the East Coast, and
Kimmel currently rules out West.
“David Letterman announces that he will
retire next year,” comic Albert Brooks
tweeted on Thursday. “CBS frantically
looking for someone named Jimmy. ”
Besides the Top Ten lists, the mono-
logue and occasional wild visit from Bill
Murray, one facet of Letterman’s show that
will be most sorely missed is his ability to
do sharp, even hard-hitting interviews
with people in the news. His first show
after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was
memorable for his reaction. It’s hard to
think of anyone who has the gravitas or
ability to fill the role that Letterman fills.
CBS Corp. and Moonves will have time
to think of that over the next year, much
of which will be spent celebrating
Letterman’s legacy.

To say that a movie feels like a dream is
not automatically a positive statement. It
all depends on the dream.
Some dreams, for example, make sense,
at least partly, and others are just baffling.
Some are compelling, others tedious.
Some move quickly, and others feel like
they’re never going to end.
Alas, Jonathan Glazer’s “Under the
Skin” begins with a lot of the positive
attributes mentioned above, but seems to
settle into the negative ones as time goes
on. It may feel like a dream, but it eventu-
ally feels like one you’re sorta ready to
wake up from.
However — and this is a significant
“however” — the film stars Scarlett
Johansson. And who among us would not
seek to welcome Ms. Johansson into our
dreams, or share hers?
Johansson’s performance isn’t simply
the best thing about the movie, it’s the
movie’s raison d’etre. And this charismat-
ic actress, who’s worth watching no matter
what she does, delivers a thoughtful,
sometimes even mesmerizing turn as, yes,
an alien preying on human males in
Glasgow, Scotland.
Given that plotline, it may sound funny
for us to complain here that what’s lacking
in the film, loosely based on a novel by
Michael Faber, is a sense of motivation
for Johansson’s character. After all, you
might say, she’s an alien who landed in
Scotland! You’re asking for a motive? But
there’s so little said here about what the
character is doing, and more importantly
why, that it gets ever more frustrating as
the minutes roll by.
In fact, there’s precious little dialogue at
all. Glazer, who directed and co-wrote the
screenplay (with Walter Campbell), appar-
ently jettisoned pages of it when he decid-
ed upon a unique method of filmmaking:
He placed his star, almost unrecognizable
in a cheap-looking black wig and bright
red lipstick, incognito on the dark streets
of Glasgow and filmed what happened,
using hidden cameras.
Much of the time, Johansson is driving a
big white van, speaking in a British
accent and trying to lure men into her car.
At other times she’s in a nightclub, or
stumbling and falling on a street, or get-
ting swept up in a crowd of female revel-
ers. It’s fascinating to watch these “Candid
Camera”-style encounters with people who
had no idea they were in a movie. But then
again, it takes you out of the narrative.
You’re thinking, “Wow, that guy didn’t
recognize ScarJo?” instead of what’s actu-
ally happening in the story.
Oh yes, the story. We meet our protago-
nist as she’s just arriving on Earth (or so
we assume — none of this is very explic-
it.). She undresses (there’s a lot of that
here, which will not hurt the box office
prospects) and dons the clothes of a dead
woman, then sets out to hunt her prey. She
brings the men home, and when they dis-
robe, she leads them across a pond of inky
liquid, into which they quickly sink.
In the novel, it was much clearer what
this comely extra-terrestrial was doing to
the men, and why she wanted them. Here,
all we know is that she’s doing something
bad, and has no human feeling (that lack of
feeling is most shockingly portrayed in a
scene that involves a couple with a baby.
Be forewarned.)
But gradually, this alien starts to devel-
op a sense of self — or humanity. This
journey introduces her to both the best and
the worst humans — well, human men —
have to offer.
There are some arresting visuals here —
a moment where Johansson simply stands
alone in the night fog is one of them —
and a creepily effective score by Mica
Levi. But the film loses steam about mid-
way through, blunting the impact of its
rather stunning end. When you wake up
from this odd dream, you may wonder what
the point was. It’s probably there, but it’s
lost in that dark fog.
“Under the Skin,” an A24 Films release,
is rated R by the Motion Picture
Association of America “for graphic nudi-
t y, sexual content, some violence and lan-
guage.” Running time: 107 minutes. Two
and a half stars out of four.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Being presumptuous
will lead to trouble. Ask before you volunteer
someone for something. Avoid complaints by doing
your share and offering positive affirmation. If you are
a team player, you will bypass controversy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You could certainly
improve your financial situation by considering
a personal or business partnership. Take full
advantage of any favorable circumstances that
arise; fate is in your corner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Don’t blow your
budget by buying unnecessary, expensive items for
your home. Concentrate on a pending legal matter
to ensure that you are getting your fair share. Be
honest about your motives.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Curb your tendency
toward rash speech when dealing with friends or
family members. If you force your opinions on others,
you will cause hurt feelings and bruised egos. It
would be best to simply listen and observe.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You will be praised for
your professional attitude regarding changes in
the workplace. Even if you have reservations, keep
up with your responsibilities and take any new
concepts in stride.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Someone has been less
than honest with you. Don’t fall for false promises or
lame excuses. Be true to your beliefs and goals. A
relationship will undergo a sudden change.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You have all the
necessary ingredients for success. Be careful not to
alienate your peers by being overbearing or aggressive.
Avoid tension by being cooperative and congenial.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — A trip or fact-finding
mission will bring you into contact with influential
individuals. Your superb memory will serve you
well, enabling you to converse with someone with
plenty to share.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t rush into
a financial decision. Proceed carefully, taking time
to investigate any contracts or documents that could
indicate the nature of the risk you’re facing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Before you make
accusations regarding a difficult situation, take a
close look at your own actions. Consider that you may
be just as much to blame as the other party.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Take positive action
for a cause you believe in. Don’t neglect your health or
your financial concerns. Put greater effort into making
your home convenient, efficient and comfortable.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — A friend or partner
may have reservations regarding something that
you’re planning. While the possibilities may be
very attractive, pay attention to the advice offered.
Thorough research is a must.

“They’re amazing. When we walked in our
jaw dropped. There’s so much natural light
and they’re huge and they’re really afford-
able,” artist Lorna Watt said. “They did a real-
ly good job remodeling them, and in a mod-
ern way.”
Watt is best known for her yarn-bombed
squid tree on B Street in downtown San
Mateo, along with other yarn creations
throughout the area. She and her sister Jill
know the struggle many artists face when try-
ing to find studio space on the Peninsula, Watt
Property owner and real estate agent Brett
Barron helped open studios at the Peninsula
Art Institute in Burlingame and, after seeing
how quickly they filled, said he recognized
the need for creative spaces along the
He showed off the Burlingame studios to
his friend Kevin Phillips, a Realtor at SC
Properties, and when the Claremont location
went on the market, the two were inspired.
“We toured Brett’s space and met a bunch of
the artists and realized a lot of the folks were
pretty passionate about this but didn’t have
space to do that in outside of their homes. So
we thought it was neat and that there was that
demand and passion,” Phillips said. “It just
kind of exploded from there.”
After SC Properties bought the warehouse
in mid-2012 and invested more than
$100,000 into it, the studios were filled
quickly and there’s already a wait list,
Phillips said.
Carol Aaron is a multi-media artist who
works in wax and was one of the first artists to
move in. Since the property has been
revamped, there’s been no shortage of inter-
ested renters, Aaron said.
“Every time that I’ve put an ad in, it’s been
the first person that’s answered that’s come in
and taken the space immediately,” Aaron said.
Like Aaron, Watt and her sister had previ-
ously been working out of their home and
struggled to find a clear countertop to work on
until they moved in two weeks ago. Watt is
the Downtown San Mateo Association’s
artist in residence and said she was thrilled to
meet local property owners who were inter-
ested in fostering Bay Area artists.
“It’s been really interesting to talk with the
owner, why he turned this and one other loca-
tion [in Burlingame] into art studios,” Watt
said. “It sounded like a good investment,
which is kind of counterintuitive but … it
really supports the community.”
Lois Paul White’s massive hand-painted
and drawn maps require nothing less than
sprawling space. One of her pieces is on per-
manent collection at San Mateo City Hall,
she’s working on another for the mayor’s
office and a third will be shipped to San
Mateo’s sister city, Toyonaka in Japan,
White said.
“I’m so grateful for this space because of
the camaraderie between artists because this
is the first time San Mateo has ever had an art
studio with this many artists and in a beauti-
ful location,” White said. “I’m glad to have a
space that’s large enough to make these mas-
sive maps.”
The studios are between 200 square feet and
250 square feet and run between $400 and
$500 per month, Phillips said. The site was
traditionally zoned residential but, with sup-
port from the property owners, it will become
part of the newly formed nonprofit Claremont
Art Guild and be submitted to the city as an
approved use, Phillips said.
In talking with tenants of the Peninsula Art
Institute and after getting to know those at
Claremont, it became clear providing a place
for artists to work and collaborate is a com-
munity benefit, Phillips said. Seeing this suc-
cess, he’s interested in opening more studio
space that would be suitable for metal sculp-
tors, Phillips said.
Aaron said she previously didn’t know any-
one in the artistic community but thanks to
the studios has met a bunch of people and has
even begun to show White how to work in
“Alot of times artists don’t have the abili-
ty to talk to other artists. They’re solo or
they’re in school or they’re on a commission
project. So it’s really phenomenal to be able
to speak with other artists and get feedback
and see what they’re doing,” White said.
Watt can attest to the struggles of finding
other artists with whom to pair. She often
works with the DSMAand said they recently
formed a nonprofit called the Downtown Art
“We’ve been trying to find local artists and
it can be difficult when you’re just using word
of mouth. But when you find a studio, it’s a
gold mind of artistic resources for the commu-
nity,” Watt said.
Many of the Claremont studio artists hope
to participate in this year’s Silicon Valley
Open Studios so they can show off their work
and their new digs.
The Downtown Art Project is also gaining
steam and plans on creating a 300-foot mural
for kids to paint and bring an artist from San
Francisco to offer a street stencil class, Watt
Being introduced to a community of artists
through the Claremont Studios helps further
her passion to bring art into the lives of
many, Watt said.
“We’re trying to build this connection with
artists and the community,” Watt said. “We’re
really trying to connect all aspects of the
community with art and having a space where
the artists are, is obviously really helpful.”

thought she was going to teach high
school, but then learned about community
college teaching opportunities.
“I just love the professionalism that’s
there (at CSM),” she said. “I love the ideas
and the programs we have. I feel like every-
one is there for the right reasons and has a
lot of integrity. I just love my students,
meeting them, getting to know them,
watching them succeed, change their minds
about things and get curious about stuff.”
James, 49, is one of the founding faculty
of the “Writing in the End Zone” program,
which is a learning community that
explores the demands and rewards of being a
student-athlete, while strengthening their
reading and writing skills.
She is also excited to teach an American
literature sequence this fall on women in lit-
erature for first time in a long while. She
said she really enjoys teaching everything.
“I love the arts and theater and dance and
am really enjoying a low-key existence
right now,” she said. “I’m really interested
in languages and culture. We speak English
and Spanish at home. I’ve always been fas-
cinated by people who could speak more
than one language. I’m sad I only accom-
plished what fluency I have.”
Aside from her teaching, James is active
in her capacity as union president for the
district’s schools.
“About 12 years ago, an office mate and I
were both pregnant and had babies and were
frustrated with maternity leave,” she said.
“It turns out we were frustrated in the wrong
direction. Our maternity leave was really
quite good. Instead of complaining, we said
‘let’s get involved.’ We learned we had
expectations that weren’t realistic.”
Although she felt like she was young and
somewhat naive, it was her introduction to
the union and the labor movement in gener-
al. Her two-year term as president will be
done at the end of this year.
“People working in the union were won-
derful mentors,” she said. “I learned a lot
about what it means to advocate and protect
rights. … It’s very satisfying. The issues
change and grow, but in end the fundamental
point of a union is to protect the employ-
ees’ due process rights and provide fair com-
pensation and good work conditions. Make
sure when there are problems, there’s a fair
process that follows.”
What are some of the major challenges the
union is dealing with now?
“One big thing — I’m glad this is almost
complete — is a huge revision of the facul-
ty evaluation section of the contract,” she
said. “It is vague now — how do you really
evaluate school nurses practicing medi-
She noted the student evaluation piece is
really dated and computers didn’t exist when
it was created. A task force of faculty and
administrators from all three community
colleges have been working on updating the
evaluations for a year and half and it’s just
about done.
“We’re working really hard to make sure
there’s a lot of buy in and communication
about the changes,” she said.
Faculty would ratify the changes, then it
would go to the district board for final
approval. The hope is that it will be instat-
ed in the fall.

Kerry: U.S. reconsiders
role in Mideast peace talks
CASABLANCA, Morocco — The Obama
administration will reevaluate its role in
foundering Middle East
peace talks following
actions by both Israel
and the Palestinians that
have brought the negoti-
ations to virtual col-
lapse, U.S. Secretary of
State John Kerry said
A visibly downbeat
Kerry, who has spent the
better part of his 14-month tenure as
America’s top diplomat trying to cajole the
parties into talks, stopped short of declar-
ing the peace process dead. But in his most
pessimistic assessment of the situation
since talks began last summer with an end-
of-April target for a deal, Kerry made clear
his patience was near exhausted. He said it
was time for a ‘reality check.”
“It is regrettable that in the last few days
both sides have taken steps that are not
helpful and that’s evident to everybody,” he
Judge dismisses
lawsuit over drone strikes
WASHINGTON — A federal judge on
Friday dismissed a lawsuit against Obama
administration officials for the 2011 drone-
strike killings of three U.S. citizens in
Yemen, including an al-Qaida cleric.
U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer said
the case raises serious constitutional issues
and is not easy to answer, but that “on these
facts and under this circuit’s precedent,” the
court will grant the Obama administration’s
The suit was against then-Defense
Secretary Leon Panetta, then-CIA Director
David Petraeus and two commanders in the
military’s Special Operations forces.
