AFTERMATH OF FATAL BUS CRASH
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO — The stock market’s laws of gravity
are ravaging its highest fliers.
Just look at the list of technology trailblazers whose val-
ues have plummeted from record highs during the past few
weeks. Investors have re-focused on safer sectors such as
utilities, health care and consumer staples instead of com-
panies that promise potential growth from online services
that are building huge audiences.
Stung by the abrupt change in sentiment, the stocks of
recent stars such as Netflix, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
are 20 percent to 45 percent below their recent peaks. The
steep downfall is raising questions about whether this is
just a fleeting fit of fickleness or the foreshadowing of
another market bubble about to burst.

Most of the 16 alleged gangmembers
indicted on a range of gang-related crimes
including murder and robbery postponed
pleas Friday in their respective cases while
one man’s defense attorney publicly called
on prosecutors to “uncapitalize” the murder
charges carrying the possibility of the
death penalty.
Roberto Gabriel
Bustos-Montes is one of
nine charged with murder
for gang purposes which
makes him eligible for
the death penalty but,
outside of court, defense
attorney Paul DeMeester
called the potential pun-
ishment an unnecessary
drain on county finances.
Defendants facing capital charges are
appointed two attorneys and the defense
racks up hefty bills for investigators,
experts and their own work first to avoid a
conviction and then, if necessary, to find
mitigating reasons why the client should
not face lethal injection, he said.
Take each defendant’s case and multiply
that by nine and San Mateo County risks
losing precious dollars for parks, educa-
tion, public safety and other necessities,
he said while publicly calling the district
attorney to immediately take the punish-
ment off the table.
“Steve Wagstaffe can put a stop to that by
dropping death right now,” DeMeester said.
Wagstaffe dismissed DeMeester’s call as
“ignorant” because he has never handled a
death penalty case in this county and does-
n’t understand the process.

Max Lieberman watches David Skrenta work on their search engine Harvix. Skrentra started the site to help students refine
their searches to those relevant for school assignments.
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Making time outside of class, home-
work, sports and school-related
extracurricular activities can be hard
for a 15-year-old, but three Carlmont
High School students are spending
their free time to gain real-world tech
experience by creating an online
search engine.
Harvix is the brainchild of David
Skrenta, a 15-year-old freshman at
Carlmont who began programming
with his father when he was in sixth-
grade. The idea came when he was
working on a research project and felt
traditional websites were inundated
with information irrelevant to his
school assignments, Skrenta said.
“Basically websites have been the
same for the last 10 years. They pro-
vide just a list of links. I really want to
get the information off the site and dis-
play it in an easily digestible format,”
Skrenta said. “Our main goal is [for] it
to work for all students of any grade or
level really. ”
He officially launched the site last
year and shortly after began working
with two of his classmates, sopho-
mores Max Lieberman and Shant
Narkizian.
Lieberman, 15, was intrigued by
Skrenta’s idea and now works as vice
president of marketing for Harvix.
“David sat right behind me in math
class and I thought his mission to help
students discover and share education
information in meaningful ways was
something I could support,”
Lieberman said. “He had this idea that
if students could find information all in
one place in the most efficient way,
it’d be gold.”
Deadlines are practically the norm
for high school students so Harvix
helps to fast-track studying,
Lieberman said.
“Students have very stressful lives
with various research projects and
research essays and they can spend
hours and hours just trying to find
some of that information scrolling
through websites. But what Harvix

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
The former San Mateo County deputy pub-
lic administrator convicted of stealing from
the assets of the deceased was sentenced to
33 months in federal prison.
Federal prosecutors sought 121 months of
prison for Peter Wong, 45, of Daly City, but
he instead received 33 months of custody
followed by three years of supervised
release and a $300 special assessment,
according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Wong will also be ordered to pay restitu-
tion in an amount to be determined but up to
$529,000 at a May 21 hearing. He remains
free from custody pending an appeal.
A jury convicted Wong in November of
three counts of theft from the estates he was
charged with administering. The convic-
tions stem from two cashier’s checks total-
ing more than $210,000 and a $10,000
bond found in his possession although
authorities argued he also stole personal
property.
Another county employee, Mandy Yagi,
of San Mateo, was also arrested in June
2012 and charged with similar crimes but
she was not convicted. The jury also cleared
Wong of theft concerning a federally funded
program, conspiracy to commit theft from a
federally funded program and forfeiture.
The Health System uncovered the pair’s
alleged crimes shortly after taking over the
Public Administrator division from the
District Attorney’s Office. The Public
Administrator handles the estate of people
without wills or designated administrators,
making burial arrangements, liquidating
assets, paying bills and locating heirs.
At the time of arrest, authorities alleged
Wong and Yagi stole thousands of dollars
and property from several estates in a pri-
vate file box between March 2009 and
December 2011. Once the investigation
started, Wong resigned in November 2011
followed by Yagi the next month.

The ranch hand who tried to drown a 9-week-
old puppy and its 67-year-old owner at a
Pescadero family ranch was sentenced Friday
to two years prison for residential burglary and
misdemeanor animal cruelty.
Jorge Ruiz-Martinez, 33, pleaded no contest
to the charges in late February rather than stand
trial on five felonies. In return, he was prom-
ised a two-year prison term with the judge’s
consideration for less. On Friday, the defense
asked for probation but Judge Jonathan Karesh
opted for the maximum. With his credit, Ruiz-
Martinez has approximately a year and a half
left to serve.
On Nov. 3, 2013, the family matriarch
reportedly found Ruiz-Martinez pouring water
down the throat of her puppy, Heidi, and after
freeing the dog later being attacked and choked
with water herself.
Responding deputies found Ruiz-Martinez in

Woman robbed at gunpoint
A 27-year-old woman was robbed of her
purse at gunpoint by two men on Centennial
Trail near the 1000 block of Mission Road in

Toxin found in
anchovies, sardines and crab
The California Department of Public Health is
advising consumers not to eat anchovies or sar-
dines caught in Monterey and Santa Cruz coun-
ties due to dangerous levels of domoic acid that
have been detected in the fish.
Consumers are also advised not to ingest the
internal organs of crabs from Monterey and
Santa Cruz counties due to domoic acid toxicity.
Domoic acid is a naturally occurring marine
toxin that doesn't hurt marine animals but can
be dangerous for humans.
In anchovies and sardines, the acid resides in
the digestive tract, which presents a danger
because the fish are typically not gutted before
consumption.
People can show symptoms of domoic acid
poisoning within 30 minutes to 24 hours after
eating toxic seafood. Symptoms include vomit-
ing, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache and
dizziness.
In severe cases, patients may experience res-
piratory problems, confusion, seizures, memo-
ry loss or death.
As of Thursday, there have been no reported
cases of domoic acid poisoning associated with
this warning.
The Department of Public Health is working
with commercial fisherman to keep recently
harvested anchovies, sardines and crabs off the
market.
This warning is in addition to a warning
issued last week not to eat recreationally har-
vested mussels, clams and whole scallops from
Monterey and Santa Cruz counties due to the
same acid.

SAN FRANCISCO — Federal prosecutors
said Friday more charges and defendants are
expected to be added to a sweeping organized
crime and public corruption case centered in
San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Prosecutor Susan Badger told U.S. District
Judge Charles Breyer that additional charges
and defendants will be added in the next 90
days.
Some 29 people, including suspended
state Sen. Leland Yee, already have been
indicted. Yee has pleaded not guilty to
bribery and gun charges.
The new charges in the case might contain
racketeering charges. However, prosecutors
didn’t identify who could be charged under the
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt
Organizations Act, better known as RICO.
“Of particular note, the government is con-
tinuing to pursue its investigation of RICO
violations as well as additional substantive
criminal violations,” prosecutors told the
judge in a court filing handed to him during a
routine hearing.
Racketeering charges carry maximum penal-
ties of 20 years in prison and hefty fines and
civil penalties, including seizure of property.
Such counts enable prose-
cutors to charge leaders of
gangs with crimes they
ordered others to carry out.
Yee and his attorney Jim
Lassart declined comment
Friday after the hearing in
San Francisco federal court.
Prosecutors also declined
comment.
Experts and many of the
two dozen lawyers involved in the case, had
expected racketeering charges to be included in
the indictment unsealed last week. However, no
racketeering charged were filed.
The lawyers and the judge have already agreed
that not all the defendants will be tried togeth-
er because of the myriad different and unrelated
charges many face.
Lumping 29 people charged with a combined
50 charges in a single indictment was a “ploy
to make the indictment seem stronger than it
is,” said Curtis Griggs, one of three lawyers
representing defendant Raymond “Shrimp
Boy” Chow, the leader of a Chinese communi-
ty organization who is charged with 10 counts
of money laundering and receiving stolen
goods.
Griggs said Chow plans to plead not guilty
when he is arraigned on Tuesday.

Dozens of protesters in San Francisco
blocked a bus headed for Google headquar-
ters Friday morning against the evictions of
local teachers and other longtime city resi-
dents.
Protesters from Eviction Free San
Francisco and other groups blocked a
Google bus at Dolores and 18th streets
starting around 8:30 a.m. The protest went
on for about 20 minutes before police
cleared the scene, according to protest
organizer Becca Gourevitch.
Attendees heard from longtime residents
of a building at 812 Guerrero St. who are
being evicted under the Ellis Act, a state law
that allows property owners to take a build-
ing off of the rental market and convert it
for other uses, such as condominiums or a
single-family home.
The building was recently purchased by a
Google employee who “proceeded to evict
tenants using illegal methods,” according
to a statement from Eviction Free San
Francisco.
A Google spokesperson did not immedi-
ately return requests for comment.
One of the tenants, 39-year-old Evan
Wolkenstein, said he and several other ten-
ants in the 7-unit building got eviction
notices in February telling them they had
120 days to vacate their homes. Residents
in two of the apartments have already been
evicted, he said.
Wolkenstein, a teacher at San Francisco’s
Jewish Community High School of the Bay,
said he has lived in his apartment for eight
years and doesn’t want to leave. He said he
had already been active in San Francisco’s
anti-eviction movement when he got his
own eviction notice.
“This entire house has a community in it
of people who look out for each other and
it’s being destroyed and I don’t think that’s
right,” he said. “More importantly, I’m
fighting on behalf of a community who
have a less of a voice than I do — people
who are disabled, people who are marginal-
ized and don’t have the resources to raise
public awareness.”
Among the tenants being evicted is
another San Francisco teacher and her tod-
dler, a disabled woman and her dog, a couple
with a baby and a musician, Wolkenstein
said.

Awoman who fatally stabbed her boyfriend
and the father of her child in February 2012 in
East Palo Alto was sentenced Friday to four
years in state prison after agreeing to a plea
deal earlier this year.
Natisha Anderson, 35, called police on Feb.
7, 2012 to report that she had “cut” her
boyfriend during an argument at their home in
the 1200 block of Camellia Drive in East Palo
Alto.
According to prosecutors her boyfriend, 34-
year-old Charles Perry, was found with a stab
wound to his femoral artery and a steak knife
was in the kitchen sink.
Perry later died at Stanford Medical Center.
Prosecutors said Anderson had claimed she
had accidentally stabbed Perry during the argu-
ment. Perry is the father of her son, who was 4
years old at the time of the incident.
In January, Anderson agreed to plead no
contest to voluntary manslaughter with a
knife enhancement, according to prosecutors.
She was sentenced to a four-year term in
state prison. She is expected to serve about a
year and a half behind bars, with 913 days
credit for her time in custody since her arrest,
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe said.
Family members of both Anderson and
Perry both spoke at the sentencing, according
to Wagstaffe.
Anderson faced up to 12 years in state
prison.

ORLAND — It was a busload of opportunity:
young, low-income, motivated students, des-
tined to become the first in their families to go
to college, journeying from the concrete sprawl
of Los Angeles to a remote redwood campus 650
miles north.
Those dreams shattered for some Thursday in
an explosive freeway collision that left 10 dead
— students, chaperones and both drivers — and
dozens hospitalized.
Desperate families awaited word about loved
ones Friday, while investigators tried to figure
out why a southbound FedEx big rig swerved
across the grassy divide of California’s key
artery before sideswiping a car and slamming
into the tour bus, which burst into a furious
blaze.
The Serrato family, whose identical twin 17-
year-old daughters set off on the adventure on
separate buses Thursday, had a panicked, sleep-
less night. Marisol made it to their destination,
Humboldt State University, but there was no
word from Marisa, who had been aboard the
now-gutted bus.
Friday morning when a sheriff’s deputy asked
for Marisa’s dental records, a grim request made
to several families, 23-year-old brother Miguel
Serrato said his family was “getting a little bit
scared.” His mother booked a flight north.
Humboldt alumni Michael Myvett, 29, and
his fiancee, Mattison Haywood, who were chap-
eroning, also were killed. Myvett was a thera-
pist at an autism treatment center.
“He just died,” his grandmother Debra Loyd
said, her voice breaking with emotion in the
early afternoon Friday. “They have already con-
firmed it.”
Myvett’s manager Kyle Farris said he was
“extraordinary,” and that he connected with
their children “on a level few others could, and
he contributed to their wellbeing in such a posi-
tive and profound way.”
“He will be greatly missed,” Farris said.
AFacebook photo shows Haywood flashing a
shining diamond engagement ring on her finger
and kissing Myvett in December near the
Louvre Museum in Paris.
The bus was among three Humboldt had char-
tered as part of its two-day Preview Plus program
to bring prospective students to tour the Arcata
campus, according to university officials.
Before launching the event Friday, university
Vice President Peg Blake’s voice broke as she
asked a crowded theater for a moment of silence
in honor of everyone affected by the accident.
Most survivors were injured, some with criti-
cal burns or broken limbs. Those who made it
out said they scrambled through a kicked-out
window. One man, apparently an admissions
counselor, was in flames and later died. Those
who could sprinted, others staggered, in a des-
perate dash to the opposite side of Interstate 5
before the vehicle exploded.

NEW YORK — It now appears that the
“Heartbleed” security problem affects not just
websites, but also the networking equipment
that connects homes and businesses to the
Internet.
Adefect in the security technology used by
many websites and equipment makers have put
millions of passwords, credit card numbers and
other personal information at risk. The extent
of the damage caused by Heartbleed isn’t
known. The threat went undetected for more
than two years, and it’s difficult to tell if any
attacks resulted from it because they don’t leave
behind distinct footprints.
But now that the threat is public, there’s a
good chance hackers will try to exploit it before
fixes are in place, says Mike Weber, vice presi-
dent of the information-technology audit and
compliance firm Coalfire.
Two of the biggest makers of networking
equipment, Cisco and Juniper, have acknowl-
edged that some of their products contain the
bug, but experts warn that the problem may
extend to other companies as well as a range of
Internet-connected devices such as Blu-ray
players.
“I think this is very concerning for many
people,” says Darren Hayes, professor of secu-
rity and computer forensics at Pace University.
“It’s going to keep security professionals very
busy over the coming weeks and months.
Customers need to make sure they’re getting the
answers they need.”
Here’s a look at what consumers and busi-
nesses should know about Heartbleed and its
effects on networking devices.
• How is networking equipment affected?
Just like websites, the software used to run
some networking equipment — such as routers,
switches and firewalls — also uses the variant of
SSL/TLS known as OpenSSL. OpenSSL is the
set of tools that has the Heartbleed vulnerabili-
ty.
As with a website, hackers could potentially
use the bug as a way to breach a system and
gather and steal passwords and other sensitive
information.
• What can you do?
Security experts continue to advise people
and businesses to change their passwords, but
that won’t be enough unless the company that
created the software in question has put the need-
ed fixes in place.
When it comes to devices, this could take a
while. Although websites can be fixed relative-
ly quickly by installing a software update,
device makers will have to check each product
to see if it needs to be fixed.
Both Cisco Systems Inc. and Juniper
Networks Inc. continue to advise customers
through their websites on which product is still
vulnerable, fixed and unaffected. Owners may
need to install software updates for products that
are “fixed.”
Hayes praises Cisco and Juniper for being
upfront with customers. He cautions, though,
that many other companies make similar prod-
ucts that likely have the bug, too, but haven’t
come forward to say so.
As a result, businesses and consumers need to
check the websites for devices that they think
could have problems. They must be diligent
about installing any software updates they
receive.
Heartbleed could harm variety of systems
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The “Heartbleed” bug has caused anxiety
for people and businesses. Now, it appears
that the computer bug is affecting not just
websites, but also networking equipment
including routers, switches and firewalls.
The extent of the damage caused by the
Heartbleed is unknown. The security hole
exists on a vast number of the Internet’s Web
servers and went undetected for more than
two years. Although it’s conceivable that the
flaw was never discovered by hackers, it’s
difficult to tell.
There isn’t much that people can do to pro-
tect themselves completely until the affected
websites implement a fix. And in the case of
networking equipment, that could be a while.
Here are three things you can do to reduce
the threat:
• Change your passwords. This isn’t a full-
proof solution. It’ll only help if the website
in question has put in place required security
patches. You also might want to wait a week
and then change them again.
• Worried about the websites you’re surf-
ing? There’s a free add-on for the Firefox
browser to check a site’s vulnerability and
provide color-codes flags. Green means go
and red means stop. You can download it
here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire-
fox/addon/heartbleed-checker/
• Check the website of the company that
made your home router to see if it has
announced any problems. Also be diligent
about downloading and installing and soft-
ware updates you may receive.

Response: ‘Supervisor
Horsley and his salary’
Editor,
Bob Stine’s letter (“Supervisor Hors-
ley and his salary” in the April 11
edition of the Daily Journal) focused on
a narrow issue, the cost to taxpayers,
which I believe is a non-issue. The
issue was keeping his word and only
that. Don Horsley made that promise
throughout his campaign. On Dec. 26,
2012, 46 days after he started receiving
the salary, he notified the public. Mr.
Stine claims he has done an excellent
job in his first term. I would point out
the 3 percent raise to sheriff deputies
while other county employees have
gone for as many as five years without
increase. I would also point out his re-
moving agenda item 9 Whistleblower
Presentation, which Supervisor Dave
Pine, Controller Bob Adler and County
Manager John Maltbie were prepared to
share with the board. I will let the vot-
ers decide if that is excellent or not.
Mr. Stine wrote, “Should they be ex-
pected to work without pay.” Of course
not, nobody asked him to work without
pay, I simply asked him to keep his
promise.

No district funds used
in bond campaign
Editor,
I want to correct the record regarding
Jack Hickey’s letter (“Government
speech” in the April 9 edition of the
Daily Journal) regarding government
agencies’ expenditures for election
campaigns. The San Mateo County
Community College District ab-
solutely did not spend $250,000 on a
“touchy feely” campaign at the time
the district had a bond measure on the
ballot and it did not fund TVcommer-
cials in support of that measure.
There was an independent campaign
committee named Citizens for Higher
Education that was formed to promote
the bond. No district funds were used
for that purpose.

W
hen it comes to the water
that sits in north state
aquifers, we trust our local
counties to safeguard it and determine
how to use it much more than we trust
the state to manage it.
Even though water is abundant in
the north state, we generally know
how valuable the resource is. We man-
age it wisely for the most part.
Especially in a drought, other areas
covet our water. Despite vague
remarks of indifference by water man-
agers south of the delta, the under-
ground reservoir here is coveted as
much as the water in the above-ground
reservoirs. And just like the building
of Shasta, Trinity and Oroville dams
was done solely to capture that blue
resource, we know in this state that
no expense is too great and no justifi-
cation too exaggerated for getting
their hands on any water source. Ask
the folks in the Owens Valley or
Trinity County.
And in a drought, that’s when the
pressures are ramped up to get that
underground water, since there’s not
as much of it sitting in those reser-
voirs.
We ran articles last week about the
folly of San Joaquin Valley farmers
replacing row crops, which can be fal-
lowed during a drought, with orchards.
Fruit and nut trees are huge invest-
ments, so farmers simply can’t quit
watering for a year. The trees would
die.
Instead, they drill deeper for
groundwater when there is no surface
water. That has caused the land to sink
and the water table to fall in some
places, permanently damaging the
aquifer.
Many counties, even those to the
south where water is a more scarce
resource, are not managing their
groundwater at all. It’s almost an any-
thing-goes scenario. That has
prompted state legislators to declare
they must do something — and with
our legislators, it’s always more of a
threat than a declaration when they
say they want to fix something. We
aren’t likely to approve of the
“fixes.”
Sen. Fran Pavley of Calabasas says
she wants to make groundwater man-
agement a personal priority. Why
would a state senator from Southern
California be interested in statewide
groundwater rules? Care to guess?
Statewide restrictions to solve
problems that are occurring in places
like the San Joaquin Valley and Paso
Robles are a wonderful idea, but we
still get nervous when we hear the
state talking about how it needs to do
a better job of “integrated groundwa-
ter management.” To us, that sounds
like somebody saying we need to tap
into areas where there’s a lot of
groundwater and quit draining areas
where the groundwater has been near-
ly sucked dry.
Abetter solution than “share and
share alike,” we believe, is for local
areas to decide their own groundwater
management, within reason. The state
seems to be saying, in its new
“California Water Action Plan,” that
if local groundwater basins or coun-
ties don’t effectively manage their
aquifers, the state will slap restric-
tions on them.
That should be good incentive for
our area to come up with its own plan.
As Paul Gosselin, director of Butte
County’s Department of Water and
Resource Conservation, told the
county Butte County Water
Commission last week: “If the state
came in and started making land-use
decisions, it would be disastrous.”
The answer, Gosselin said, is for
the county to come up with its own
plan, with targets for how much
groundwater can be pumped each year,
then monitoring the totals. The coun-
t y, he said, would be required to do
compliance reports every five years to
prove it is following the plan. It will
be expensive, and may be just one
more cost for farmers and water users,
but it’s better than the alternative of
putting the state in charge.
Rahm Emanuel, formerly Barack
Obama’s chief of staff, once elucidated
an unspoken maxim that many politi-
cians follow: “You never let a serious
crisis go to waste. And what I mean
by that, it’s an opportunity to do
things you think you could not do
before.”
If that means the state will stop
counties from pumping too much
groundwater, that’s excellent. If that
means the state will use the drought as
an opportunity to suck more ground-
water out of the north to get through
the crisis, we’re concerned.
Guarding our groundwater
Yes, Virginia,
there is a choice
F
rom time to time I get letters, a recent one might
have read, “Dear John, Some of my friends say
there is no political choice in San Mateo County.
Papa says, ‘If you see it in the Daily Journal it’s so.’
Please tell me the truth, is there a political choice in our
county? Signed, Virginia in San Mateo.”
In reply, Virginia, your friends are wrong. They have
been affected by the groupthink and herd mentality of the
Bay Area. They do not believe that anything outside of
the progressive-liberal belief system is allowed. They
think that all people must follow the same path, and that
no one can think for themselves. They refuse to see or
consider what is right before their eyes.
Yes, Virginia, there is a political choice in San Mateo
County beyond the machine politics of the Democratic
Party. It exists as certainly as freedom, liberty and indi-
vidual initiative exist. It would be a dreary world indeed if
there was only government as our “protector” — making
sure that all we think, say and
do is approved by central
administrators who know better
than we do how to run our lives.
That’s why, surprisingly to
some, the Republican Party has
a large county presence with
almost 70,000 registered vot-
ers. Moreover, several city
councilmembers, mayors and
special district board members
are Republicans. County party
Chair Chuck McDougald notes,
“2012 was a wake-up call. Our
central committee meetings are
standing-room only. Our members are getting off their
duffs and stepping up to the plate. At our last convention,
held in Burlingame, we had to turn away volunteers.”
Asked why county voters should support Republican
candidates given their smaller numbers in the county,
McDougald said, “They can make a difference for the first
time in a long time. Look at what happened in Fresno with
Sen. Andy Vidak and in San Diego with the election of
Mayor Kevin Falcouner.” He continues, “The Republican
Party still faces challenges in California but we have come
a long way. We’ve paid off a debt of more than a million
dollars, we’ve reopened our Sacramento office, and a thou-
sand people showed up at our last state convention, excited
and ready to change the political landscape.”
Although not a political party, the tea party group
MyLiberty, made up of Libertarian, Decline to State and
Republican voters, is also active in the county. Its imme-
diate past chair is San Carlos Councilman Matt Grocott.
He said, “MyLiberty and the tea party stand for three fun-
damental issues: Fiscal responsibility, free markets and
constitutional fidelity. Those are all issues that, ultimate-
l y, are in the best interest of the American public.”
Grocott elaborates, “Some have the impression that the
tea party movement has fizzled and died out because they
don’t see the rallies on the street like were done in the
past.” In response, MyLiberty will hold a rally on the
afternoon of Sunday, April 13, in front of the Hillsdale
Shopping Center. He says that the TEAin Tea Party stands
for Taxed Enough Already and that, “Having a rally is still
a fun way to pass on a message to the public.”
The San Mateo County Libertarian Party also has a local
elected official and candidates on June’s ballot. Kevin
Duewel, vice chair of the San Mateo County Libertarian
Party, argues that, “In a left-leaning county like San
Mateo, the Libertarian Party is a much more strategic
vehicle than the Republican Party for advocates of limited
government and individual liberty. The Libertarian Party
supports entrepreneurs, small businesses and taxpayers,
but unlike the Republican Party, it is more tolerant and
accepting on social issues.”
Duewel says Libertarians are excited about the San
Mateo County Board of Supervisors District Three race
where member Michael Stogner is running against an
incumbent politician. According to him, Stogner is a
strong supporter of accountability and responsibility in
the county government.
No political choice in San Mateo County? That just
isn’t so, as the work of the Republicans, Libertarians and
MyLiberty members show. Ah, Virginia, in this world
there is a choice and you can make it — to be free, pros-
perous and independent. Make your choice real and last-
ing, and join those who are like-minded — Republicans at
smgop.org, Libertarians at lpsm.org, and MyLiberty at
mylibertysanmateo.com.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Investors drove the
stock market lower for a second straight
day Friday as they grew anxious that
earnings growth was faltering.
Weaker results at JPMorgan Chase
dragged bank stocks lower. And big
drops in once-soaring tech stocks
pushed the Nasdaq composite down for a
third week.
“The market has been trying to come
back, but each time the selling just picks
up,” said Quincy Krosby, a market strate-
gist at Prudential. “The buyers are just
not stepping in.”
So much for buying on the dip.
Stocks fell from the start of trading on
news that JPMorgan had missed ana-
lysts’ earnings estimates. Investors,
who were worried that technology shares
were overvalued, dumped those for a sec-
ond day, with some of the biggest gain-
ers of late falling sharply. Facebook fell
1.1 percent, after a 5 percent drop on
Thursday.
The first-quarter earnings season has
just started, but investors seem in little
mood to wait for results. Financial ana-
lysts expect earnings for companies in
the Standard & Poor’s 500 index to drop
1.6 percent from a year earlier, according
to FactSet, a financial data provider. At
the start of the year, they expected a
jump of 4.3 percent.
If profits do fall, it would be only the
second quarterly drop in three years.
“Earnings are going to come in on the
sloppy side,” said Peter Cardillo, chief
market economist at Rockwell Global
Capital. “The market needs to correct,”
he added, referring to a sharp downturn in
stocks.
On Friday, the Nasdaq dropped 54.37
points, or 1.3 percent, to 3,999.73. It
was only the second time this year the
index has closed below the 4,000 mark.
Feb. 3 was the last time it ended below
that level.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell
143.47 points, or 0.89 percent, to
16,026.75. The S&P 500 fell 17.39
points, or 0.95 percent, to 1,815.69.
All 10 industry sectors in the S&P500
dropped. Consumer discretionary stocks
fell the most, down 1.4 percent, and
technology stocks were the third-
biggest decliner, down 1.2 percent.
Last year, earnings for S&P 500 com-
panies rose 6 percent, a decent showing.
Stocks rose much faster — up nearly 30
percent for the index. Helping stocks
rise was the Federal Reserve bond buy-
ing designed to stimulate the economy.
“Investors haven’t worried about earn-
ings because it hasn’t mattered.
Fundamentals haven’t mattered,” said
Prudential’s Krosby. “All that has mat-
tered ... is what is the Federal Reserve
was going to do.”
She said a so-called correction in
indexes — a drop of 10 percent from
highs — would be healthy for the mar-
ket, giving it a sturdier base on which to
rally.
The Nasdaq is already well on its way.
It is now 8 percent below its recent high
in March. The S&P 500 is off 4 percent
from its recent high on April 2.
Among tech stocks making big
moves Friday, Netflix fell 2.4 percent,
Amazon, 1.7 percent and Google’s new
Class C shares, 1.9 percent.
On Friday, JPMorgan Chase fell
$2.10, or 3.7 percent, to $55.30. The
nation’s biggest bank by assets said its
earnings slid 20 percent in the first quar-
ter as revenue from bond trading and
mortgage lending declined.
“They’re just struggling to grow, and
then they didn’t have the strength out of
the investment bank to help offset that,”
said Shannon Stemm, financial services
analyst for Edward Jones. “All around,
it’s just a lackluster quarter for them.”
Other stocks making news:
• General Motors dropped $1.37, or
4.1 percent, to $31.93 after it said it
must fix a second ignition part in com-
pact cars it is recalling for switch prob-
lems. It said the fix will increase its first-
quarter recall costs above $1 billion.
• Gap Inc. fell 89 cents, or 2.3 per-
cent, to $38.40. The San Francisco-
based company, which owns the Gap,
Banana Republic and Old Navy brands,
said revenue for stores open at least a
year fell 6 percent.

Salesforce to lease
new space in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO — Salesforce.com is set
to become the anchor tenant in an office tower
under construction in San Francisco that’s
expected to be the tallest building on the West
Coast.
Company and city officials announced the
roughly $560 million, 15-year lease deal on
Friday.
Salesforce will occupy 714,000 square feet
in the new Transbay Tower. The 61-story sky-
scraper will sit atop a new transit hub. It will
be renamed the Salesforce Tower.
The tower is scheduled to be completed in
2017.
Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff says the deal
represents an incredible milestone in the com-
pany’s history. It plans to hire more than
1,000 new employees this year.
Salesforce currently leases more than 1 mil-
lion square feet in the city.
Ohio geologists link
small quakes to fracking
COLUMBUS, Ohio — State geologists in
Ohio have for the first time linked earthquakes
in a geologic formation deep under the
Appalachians to gas drilling, leading the state
to issue new permit conditions in certain areas
that are among the nation’s strictest.
Astate investigation of five small tremors
in the Youngstown area, in the Appalachian
foothills, last month has found the high-pres-
sure injection of sand and water that accompa-
nies hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the
Utica Shale may have increased pressure on a
small, unknown fault, said State Oil & Gas
Chief Rick Simmers. He called the link “prob-
able.”
While earlier studies had linked earthquakes
in the same region to deep-injection wells
used for disposal of fracking wastewater, this
marks the first time tremors have been tied
directly to fracking, Simmers said. Five seis-
mic events in March were all part of what was
considered a single event and couldn’t be easi-
ly felt by people.
The state’s new permit conditions are per-
haps the most cautious yet put in place in the
nation, he said.
Major economies
express confidence about growth
WASHINGTON — Finance officials of the
world’s major economies expressed confi-
dence Friday that they can meet an ambi-
tious goal of boosting global growth by $2
trillion over the next five years.
That’s despite a variety of threats includ-
ing rising political tensions over Russia’s
actions in Ukraine.
Finance ministers and central bank presi-
dents of the leading rich and developing
nations issued a joint statement that
papered over substantial differences in such
areas as central bank interest rate policies
and whether to hit Russia with tougher sanc-
tions because of its dealings with Ukraine.
The final Group of 20 communique pledged
to keep working on concrete economic
reforms that could boost global growth by 2
percent over the next five years. But finance
officials concede that the economic reforms
needed to achieve that goal will in many
cases be politically difficult.
Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey said all
the finance ministers realized that hard deci-
sions would have to be made in terms of
reforming labor market policies and dealing
with budget deficits.
Subway: ‘Yoga mat
chemical’ almost out of bread
NEWYORK — Subway says an ingredient
dubbed the “yoga mat chemical” will be
entirely phased out of its bread by next
week.
The disclosure comes as Subway has suf-
fered from an onslaught of bad publicity
since a food blogger petitioned the chain to
remove the ingredient.
The ingredient, azodicarbonamide, is
approved by the Food and Drug
Administration for use in food as a bleach-
ing agent and dough conditioner. It can be
found in a wide variety of products, includ-
ing those served at McDonald’s, Burger
King and Starbucks and breads sold in super-
markets.
SeaWorld loses appeal
in death by killer whale
WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court
on Friday upheld a regulatory safety finding
against SeaWorld in the drowning of a train-
er who was pulled under by a killer whale at
the theme park.
In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court said
SeaWorld’s challenge to the finding was
unpersuasive and that the Occupational
Safety and Health Review Commission was
correct when it found that the SeaWorld park
in Orlando, Fla., had violated a federal work-
place safety law.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Bubba Watson likes the
way he looks in green. He wants to get that
color back in his wardrobe.
Watson surged to the Masters lead with a
spree of birdies on the back side Friday,
positioning him for a weekend run at his
second green jacket in three years.
“I’m trying to get the jacket back,”
Watson said. “I want that feeling again.”
The 2012 champion at Augusta National
sparked the best run of
the tournament so far
when he stuck his tee
shot at No. 12 within 3
feet of the cup. He tapped
in for the first of five
straight birdies that pro-
pelled him to a 4-under
68.
Even after making his
second bogey of the tour-
nament by missing a short putt at the 18th,
Watson walked off with his second straight
round in the 60s, a 7-under 137 total and a
three-stroke lead — the biggest 36-hole
advantage at Augusta since 2006.
“It’s not science here,” Watson said. “It’s
try to hit the greens, and if you’re hitting
the greens that means you’re obviously hit-
ting your tee shots well. So that’s all I’m
trying to do, just hit the greens.”
Look who’s in the mix again, too: 54-
year-old Fred Couples, who posted his sec-
ond straight 71.
This is the fifth straight year the 1992
winner has gone to the weekend in the top
10 — he was leading two years ago — but
he’s never been able to hang on.
“I can’t panic,” said Couples, looking to
become the oldest major champion in golf
history. “You’re not going to pick up two or
three shots here because you want to. It’s
not that kind of course. You’ve got to hang
in there, expect a tough shot here and there.
It’s going to be a tough day tomorrow. ”

Serra’s Vinnie Venturi pitched one inning of scoreless relief, entering in the seventh with two
runners on and no outs. The sophomore southpaw induced a double play grounder and an-
other groundout to get out of the inning unscathed.
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
For St. Francis ace John Gavin, facing
Serra this season has been about exorcising
some serious demons.
For the second time this season, Gavin did
so in leading the Lancers past the Padres
with a 3-0 win Friday at Serra. The big left-
hander went six-plus shutout innings to
improve his unbeaten record to 4-0. Also
having shut out Serra 1-0 at St. Francis
March 21, Gavin has been flawless against
the Padres this year.
That’s a far cry from the lack of success
Gavin had against Serra in two previous
seasons.
“They roughed me up pretty dang badly
my sophomore and junior year,” Gavin said.
“I gave up a home run to [Jordan Paroubeck
last year] that probably still hasn’t landed.
So it felt good to get the monkey off my
back and pitch the game that I know that I
can.”
Now the owner of a 22-2 career record,
Gavin hasn’t faced much adversity in his
varsity career. But the two starts against
Serra previous to this year were his two
worst. As a sophomore, Gavin took his
only loss of the year against the Padres,
lasting just 2 1/3 innings while surrender-
ing five runs in a 7-3 Serra win. Last season,
Gavin went just 2 2/3 innings in surrender-
ing seven runs while taking a no-decision
in a 10-9 Serra victory.
But even without his best stuff Friday,
Gavin kept St. Francis rolling to its third
straight win, by virtue of which the Lancers
(8-2 in West Catholic Athletic League, 13-2
overall) move into sole possession of first
place in the WCAL. They entered into play
tied atop the league with Mitty, but the
Monarchs fell to Bellarmine 1-0 Friday.
“I think he did a really good job of bat-
tling,” St. Francis manager Mike Oakland
said. “I honestly didn’t think his command
Struggles continue
By Howie Rumberg
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — Get a grip.
Using a suspicious substance for a better
hold of the baseball on cool days is not such
a sticky situation.
Whether it’s the Yankees’ Michael Pineda
with a mysterious brown goo on his hand,
Boston’s Jon Lester with a green smudge in
his glove or Houston’s Josh Zeid spraying
something on his forearm before entering a
recent game, most major leaguers don’t care
whether pitchers get a little help — even
though it’s against the Official Baseball
Rules.
To some, it’s preferable.
“It’s an unwritten rule in the game. I’m
sure a lot of pitchers do it,” Red Sox out-
fielder Shane Victorino said Friday before
Boston played the Yankees. “As a hitter, do
what you got to do from letting that ball go
astray and hitting me in the head. I’m fine
with that.”
Ever since pitchers started throwing to
batters in the 1800s, they’ve looked for an
edge — and it has continued long after doc-
toring the baseball was banned in 1920.
Television cameras caught Pineda with
what looked like sticky pine tar on his hand
early in the Yankees’ 4-1 victory over
Boston on a cool Thursday night, when the
ball could be slick. Red Sox manager John
Farrell didn’t see a photograph of Pineda’s
hand until the fourth inning. By the time
Pineda came out to warm up for the fifth, his
hand was clean and Farrell didn’t complain
to umpires.
“In conditions like last night, it’s not
uncommon for pitchers to try and get a grip
in some way,” Farrell said. “We’re more
focused on what we need to do offensively to
kind of get going rather than taking any-
thing away from his abilities.”

Players know pitchers will look for an edge

Orlando Razo hadn’t pitched at Stanford
since he was a pupil of the great Cardinal
pitching coach Tom Dunton.
Well, he kind of pitched at Stanford.
“I used to get pitching lessons in the away
bullpen,” Razo said. “That’s about as close
as I got.”
Ayear removed from posting a 9-2 record
as the ace starter of Serra’s pitching staff,
Razo got to take the game mound at Sunken
Diamond Tuesday. The UC Davis freshman
was brilliant in his homecoming, firing 3
1/3 innings of shutout baseball. While
Stanford ultimately won 7-6, Razo entered
with the Aggies trailing 4-3 and pitched his
team back into it. Davis scored single runs
in the fifth, sixth and seventh and Razo
departed with a 7-4 lead. He took a no-deci-
sion as the Cardinal rallied for three runs in
the eighth to win it.
Still, getting to pitch in front family and
friends that numbered 15 guests was a thrill
for the freshman southpaw.
“It felt awesome, honestly,” Razo said.
“My parents are big baseball fans in gener-
al. They love watching me pitch but they
just love watching the game of baseball. …
They come to pretty much every game any-
way, but my brother was there who doesn’t
always get to see me pitch, and then a bunch
of family and friends that went. So, it was
nice to know that I have a big supporting
cast. That was awesome.”
Razo has been fairly awesome as well as
the freshman has helped solidify the back-
end of the UC Davis bullpen. The Aggies
feature a trio of relievers with Razo and Raul
Jacobson setting up for the Big West’s sec-
ond best saves leader in freshman closer
Zach Stone.
Through 12 appearances, Razo has posted
a 1-2 record with a 1.64 ERA. His appear-
ance at Sunken Diamond was his third
straight Tuesday appearance in long relief.
But while he’s been thrown into the compet-
itive fire as a weekend setup man, the goal is
still to crack the starting rotation.
“I hope to one day eventually start,” Razo

Carlmont 12, Burlingame 0
Rebecca Faulkner fired a perfect game to
keep the first-place Scots undefeated in Bay
Division play Thursday. The senior left-
hander struck out four through the six-
inning perfecto, which was shortened due to
the mercy rule.
Faulker helped her cause at the plate by
going 3 for 4 with three RBIs. She also had
several standout defensive plays, according
to Carlmont head coach Jim Liggett.
Scots senior Gabriella Pons went 2 for 4
with four RBIs while Mariko Kondo and
Kelsey Ching each added two hits. With the
win, Carlmont improves to 6-0 in league,
remaining one game ahead of second-place
Half Moon Bay.
Menlo-Atherton 20, Jefferson 2
The Bears picked up where they left off
Thursday in an easy win over Jefferson
Friday.
M-A(4-2 PALOcean, 11-5) crushed Shasta
Charter 15-0 Thursday and poured even more
on the Indians. The Bears had scoring
innings of 3, 6, 5, 2 and 4 in a game that
was called after five innings because of the
10-run mercy rule.
Emily Katz did it all for the Bears. Not
only did she hold Jefferson to a pair of runs
on two hits, she had four hits at the plate,
including a triple and a two-run homer in the
fifth. She finished with four RBIs.
Tanya Lazaro also had a monster game,
collecting three doubles among her four hits
and drove in a half-dozen runs. Yescina
Garcia and Erin Goode both had two hits and
drove in three runs.
Menlo-Atherton 15, Shasta Charter 0
Bears junior pitcher Emily Katz earned her
10th victory of the season in dealing two
shutout innings Thursday. Junior Erin
Goode had a triple and three RBIs while
freshman catcher Sarah Tiemann added two
hits and two RBIs. The game lasted three
innings due to the mercy rule. The big win
comes on the heels of M-A’s 15-0 loss to
Mills Tuesday. With the win, the Bears
improve to 10-5 overall.

Sacred Heart Prep 1,
Menlo-Atherton 0, 8 innings
The Gators managed just one hit, but one
hit was enough as they out-lasted the Bears
in eight innings.
SHP (3-3 PAL Bay, 10-6 overall) was held
hitless through seven innings by M-A
pitcher Matt McGarry. Luckily for the
Gators, M-A could not muster much offense
against SHP starter Will Johnston.
In the top of the eighth inning, SHP final-
ly pushed across what turned out to be the
winning run. With one out, Andrew
Robinson was hit by a pitch and moved to
second on a passed ball. He moved to third
on a Chris Lee groundout. Andrew
Daschbach was hit by a pitch to put runners
on the corners and bring up Danny Cody
with two outs.
Cody hit a pitch into the hole between
third base and shortstop and beat the throw
to first with Robinson scoring on the play.
Johnston was the beneficiary of the run as
he pitched a complete game, five hitter in
earning the win to improve to 4-1 overall
and 2-1 in PAL play.
Menlo School 5, Half Moon Bay 3
The Knights jumped on the Cougars early
and held on for the win in Peninsula Athletic
League Bay Division action Friday.
Menlo (4-2 PAL Bay, 10-5 overall) scored
four times in the first inning and added its
final run in the top of the third. Half Moon
Bay (2-4, 9-8) got back in the game with a
three-run sixth, but could get no closer.
Macklan Badger drove in a pair of runs in
the first with a booming double. Brett
Berghammer drove in two of the three HMB
runs with a triple.
Wyatt Driscoll picked up the win for the
Knights, improving to 4-1 with five-plus
innings of work.
Menlo-Atherton 5, Washington 4
The Bears rallied for three runs in the bot-
tom of the seventh to walk off against
Washington in non-league action Thursday
at Skyline College.
M-A junior pitcher A.J. Lemons earned
his first win of the season to improve to 1-
0. Lemons has been stellar in seven relief
outings for M-A this season. Surrendering
just his second run of the year through three
innings of work Thursday, he currently
owns a 1.02 ERA. M-A senior Erik
Amundson stole three bases and scored two
runs in the game. With the win, M-A

Cañada 5, Skyline 4
In a key Coast Pacific Conference win
Thursday, the Colts took a 4-1 lead into the
eighth. Skyline rallied for three runs in the
top of the frame to tie it, but Cañada

the inning to retake the lead. Ryan De
Gregorio tabbed the win in relief to improve
to 4-0. Colts starter David Moody took a
no-decision after 7 1/3 innings of work.
Skyline closer Bryan Hidalgo took the loss
to fall to 2-6. Cañada second baseman Matt
Eastman was 2 for 4 with an RBI while
Dylan Cook added two RBIs. Skyline catch-
er Keaton Eichman was 2 for 3 with a run
scored. With the win, Cañada remains in a
second-place tie with Ohlone at 12-6, each
one game behind first-place Cabrillo.

Sharks 5, Avalanche 1
SAN JOSE — Marty Havlat scored three
goals for the first time in nearly nine years,
and the San Jose Sharks prevented Colorado
from clinching the Central Division title
with a 5-1 victory over the Avalanche on
Friday night.
Dan Boyle and Patrick Marleau also
scored, and Alex Stalock made 32 saves for
the Sharks, who had lost four of six to fall
short in their race for first place in the
Pacific Division.
Patrick Bordeleau scored the lone goal for
the Avalanche, who lost for the first time in
regulation since March 21 against Boston.
Colorado had gone 8-0-1 in its last nine
games to move into a tie for first with St.
Louis.
The Avalanche can win the division either
by beating Anaheim on Sunday night in the
regular-season finale or with a regulation
loss by St. Louis earlier Sunday against
Detroit.
Colorado needs the Ducks to lose Saturday
in Los Angeles to have a chance of finishing
in the top spot in the Western Conference.
San Jose is locked into the second seed in
the Pacific Division and will open the play-
offs at home next week against Los
Angeles. The Sharks moved two points
ahead of Chicago in the race for home-ice
advantage in a possible conference final
matchup.
Despite the significant stakes in the game
for Colorado, coach Patrick Roy opted to
give third-string goalie Reto Berra his sec-
ond start since joining the team last month.
The move backfired quickly as Berra allowed
two goals on the first five shots he faced and
was replaced by Jean-Sebastien Giguere.
Boyle opened the scoring with a well-
placed shot from the faceoff circle just over
3 minutes into the game. Marleau ended
Berra’s night 10:11 into the game with a
slap shot from the slot for his 33rd goal.

After graduating from Serra, Razo refined
his relief chops as the closer of the Pacific
Union Financial Capitalists — aka the Caps
— out of Walnut Creek. Playing over 40

“I had one start then closed pretty much
the whole summer,” Razo said. “It was a lot
of fun.”
Before emerging as an All-West Catholic
Athletic League second-team pitcher in
2013, Razo had the time of his life working
with Dunton. Stanford’s former pitching
coach of 16 years worked with Razo since
the lefty was in middle school then all
through high school.
“He was awesome,” Razo said. “He
coached Mike Mussina … and all the great
Stanford pitchers.”

LOS ANGELES — Stephen Curry had 30
points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, and the
Golden State Warriors clinched a playoff berth
with a 112-95 victory over the Los Angeles
Lakers on Friday night.
Klay Thompson and Marreese Speights
scored 16 points apiece for the Warriors, who
will make back-to-back postseason appear-
ances for the first time in more than two
decades.
After blowing a 20-point lead and a chance
to clinch at home against Denver on Thursday
night, Curry and the Warriors are back in the
postseason after snapping an 11-game road
losing streak against the Lakers.
Nick Young scored 25 points for the Lakers,
who set a franchise low with the 54th loss of
their miserable season. The 1957-58
Minneapolis Lakers lost 53 times in their 72-
game season.
Curry, who hit four 3-pointers, grabbed a
defensive rebound with 41 seconds left to
wrap up his fifth career triple-double. The
speedy point guard is the first Warriors player
with four triple-doubles in a single season
since Wilt Chamberlain had five in 1962-63.
The Warriors had little trouble with the rem-
nants of the Lakers, opening a 20-point lead
in the third quarter and cruising to just their
second road win over the 16-time NBAcham-
pions in 22 games.
Steve Nash and Pau Gasol sat out for the
Lakers, who will miss the playoffs for just the
third time since 1976.
Golden State also won its season series with
the Lakers for the first time since 1994-95,
and the Warriors’ victory was their 49th, one
shy of the franchise’s first 50-win season
since 1993-94.
The Warriors are likely to be the Western
Conference’s sixth seed, which would mean
they’ll return to Staples Center next week to
face the Pacific Division champion Clippers.
Steve Blake had 13 points, five assists and
five rebounds in his first road game against the
Lakers since they traded him to Golden State
on Feb. 19. The veteran point guard hit three
3-pointers during his highest-scoring game
since joining the Warriors.
Only nine Lakers suited up, thanks to their
usual lengthy list of injured players: Nash,
Gasol, Chris Kaman, Kent Bazemore and
Xavier Henry all sat out. Nash experienced a
flare-up of his season-long problems with his
back and hamstrings on Tuesday while pass-
ing Warriors coach Mark Jackson for third
place on the NBA’s career assists list.
Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O’Neal sat out
for Golden State, with Iguodala resting his
right knee tendinitis for the second time this
month.
David Lee had 10 points and 10 rebounds for
the Warriors, coming off the bench in his
return from a seven-game absence with right
leg problems.
Curry was sharp from the opening tip, scor-
ing 11 points in each of the first two quarters.
Even when he missed a breakaway dunk, he
got the rebound and buried a 25-foot fall-away
3-pointer.
Jordan Crawford’s 3-pointer set off a 17-6
run by the Warriors, who led 58-43 at half-
time.
Young hit a series of jumpers to trim Golden
State’s lead to 103-92 with 2:52 to play, but
Thompson hit a few big shots to wrap it up.
NOTES: The Lakers had planned to wear
their black alternate jerseys, but the Warriors
mistakenly packed their regular blue road jer-
seys, forcing Los Angeles to wear its tradi-
tional home gold. ... The Warriors had lost 20
of their past 21 home games against the
Lakers, losing only on March 23, 2008, when
Stephen Jackson hit two last-minute 3-point-
ers.

SAN FRANCISCO — Madison Bumgarner
hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high five
runs to overcome a shaky outing on the mound,
sending the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 vic-
tory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday
night.
Bumgarner hit a sacrifice fly off starter Jorge
De La Rosa in the third inning, then connected
for a towering home run in the fourth. It was
Bumgarner’s third career homer and only the
second grand slam by a Giants pitcher since the
team relocated from New York to San Francisco
in 1958.
Shawn Estes did it against Montreal on May
24, 2000.
Brandon Crawford added two hits and scored
twice for the Giants.
Carlos Gonzalez homered for Colorado,
which played short-handed after injuries side-
lined two of its top hitters.
Bumgarner (2-0) struck out seven and walked
two in six erratic innings. He allowed nine hits
and appeared headed for a short night until the
Giants scored five runs in the fourth.
His home run came on a day when both teams
were minus key players.
Troy Tulowitzki’s sore quadriceps kept him
out of Colorado’s starting lineup. He pinch-hit
in the ninth and struck out looking against
closer Sergio Romo to end the game.
The Rockies also were without catcher Wilin
Rosario, who hurt his left wrist while sliding
during Wednesday’s 8-1 win against the
Chicago White Sox.
San Francisco played with a jumbled lineup
as manager Bruce Bochy rested catcher Buster
Posey and center fielder Angel Pagan.
There were still plenty of offensive fire-
works.
Gonzalez hit a two-run shot off Bumgarner in
the third to put the Rockies up 3-0. The ball
landed in McCovey Cove, the second time
Colorado’s slugger has reached the waters
beyond AT&TPark.

said in a statement Friday that Pineda would
not be suspended.
“The umpires did not observe an applica-
tion of a foreign substance during the game
and the issue was not raised by the Red
Sox,” Torre said. “Given those circum-
stances, there are no plans to issue a sus-
pension, but we intend to talk to the
Yankees regarding what occurred.”
Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman
spoke with Torre and said the issue was
resolved. Pineda said hadn’t spoken with
any Yankees management as of early after-
noon.
Perhaps Farrell didn’t say anything
because his pitchers have been accused of
using something extra. Toronto Blue Jays
broadcasters last season thought they
caught Clay Buchholz — who faced Pineda
Thursday — using an illegal substance.
During the 2013 World Series opener, Lester
was seen on TV with something in his
glove.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi has never
questioned his own pitchers, but he knows
what goes on.
“I don’t talk to pitchers about that: ‘Do
you use or don’t you use?’ This is not a recre-
ational drug. I don’t talk to people about
that,” Girardi said. “I’m aware. I’ve been on
teams where I’ve seen it. I’m 99 percent sure
that I know of other guys on other teams
that use it.”
Rule 8.02 says a pitcher may not apply a
“foreign substance” to the ball, and section
B of the rule says a pitcher may not have
any “foreign substance” in his possession
on the mound. The penalty if caught is auto-
matic ejection and suspension.
The rule has been applied, perhaps most
famously when Twins pitcher Joe Niekro
was caught with an emery board and sandpa-
per in the back pocket of his uniform pants
in 1987. He was banned for 10 days. But
Victorino agreed, doctoring the ball this
way is different than improving one’s grip.
Dodgers reliever Jay Howell was suspend-
ed three days (later reduced to two) for pine
tar on his glove in Game 3 of the 1988 NL
championship series.
For a player to be ejected, he has to be
caught. Umpires are obligated to take action
if they see a violation or if one is reported
to them. Not so easily done.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and
Victorino each said they have never gone up
to the plate and noticed whether a pitcher
had something on his hand or uniform. But
as camera resolution increases, spotlight
has increased on all players. Unlike golf,
which has a self-policing policy that allows
fans watching at home to point out rules
violations, there’s no such mechanism in
baseball.
Challenging the use of an illegal sub-
stance is not among the reviewable plays
under MLB’s new replay system. Baseball
executives plan to examine the rules and
make changes for 2015, perhaps a path that
would allow for a change.
For most, though, the problem for Pineda
was he was too blatant.
“Be discreet,” Victorino said.

BASEBALL
was as good as it’s been in the past. His
breaking ball wasn’t as good as it’s been in
recent outings. I just think he battled
through the whole thing.”
While Gavin issued four hits and four
walks, the difference in the game was that
St. Francis was able to hold Serra base run-
ners in check. Only three Padres reached
scoring position in the game, two of which
came in the bottom of the seventh when
Serra stranded the bases loaded to end the
game.
On the other hand, Serra starter Sean
Watkins was flirting with disaster all day.
The senior right-hander worked five
innings, allowing three runs on just two
hits. However, Watkins walked five, four of
which reached scoring position, with two
eventually scoring.
“It’s difficult to overcome free bases in our
league,” Serra manager Craig Gianinno said.
“They’re a good team and they capitalized
on those opportunities.”
Still, the game was scoreless after three
innings. And it took an infield error with
two on and two out in the fourth for St.
Francis to break through.
“Two good pitchers,” Gianinno said. “I
think they both grinded. Our guy didn’t
have his best stuff but he competed and
grinded. We made a couple mistakes and St.
Francis capitalized.”
Two big mistakes struck after Watkins
issued a pair of fourth-inning walks. Wi t h
Lancers at first and second amid a scoreless
tie, Watkins committed a balk to move both
runners into scoring position. On the ensu-
ing pitch, St. Francis senior Ryan Johnson
hit a routine grounder to shortstop which
caught Matt Blais between hops for a costly
error allowing Jonathan Mendoza to score
from third, giving St. Francis a 1-0 lead.
Watkins still managed to strike out the
side in the fourth and totaled five strikeouts
in the game.
In the fifth, St. Francis scored twice more.
With two outs, senior Blake Billinger
extended the inning with a four-pitch walk.
Cleanup man Tyler Deason didn’t wait
around, as the lefty-swinging senior crushed
a two-run home run to right, his first of the
year, to give St. Francis a 3-0 lead.
Boasting a 0.51 team ERA, it was all the
runs St. Francis pitchers would need.
“It’s a huge sigh of relief (to take the
lead),” Gavin said. “Especially when it’s 0-
0, you still have the jitters. When it’s 3-0
you can breath a little bit more.”
After Gavin surrendered a leadoff double to
James Outman in the seventh, St. Francis
turned to right-hander Patrick McMullen.
The senior issued a walk before Chris
Papapietro reached on an error to load the
bases. But McMullen buckled down to
induce a groundout off the bat of Nolan
Dempsey to end the game.
McMullen earned his third save of the
year. Watkins took the loss, falling to 0-2
on the year.
Outman was 2 for 3 in the game and is cur-
rently hitting for a .367 average.
“We all knew that Gavin is a really good
pitcher,” Outman said. “So we just had the
same mentality. Just hunt fastball and see
what we can get because they have a really
good pitching staff.”
Serra’s best swing of the game came off
the bat of cleanup hitter Angelo Bortolin, as
the left-handed-hitting sophomore drove a
Gavin fastball to the warning track in the
second inning which St. Francis left fielder
Ryan McSwain hauled in with his back
against the wall. Bortolin currently paces
Serra in each of the Triple Crown categories
with a .386 batting average, five home runs
and 22 RBIs.
“Bortolin, for a young kid, is really com-
posed and calm at the plate offensively, ”
Gianinno said. “He’s just getting better
every day and getting more and more confi-
dent. (He is) understanding how the league
is trying to get him out and pitch him. He’s
making quality adjustments from pitch to
pitch and from at bat to at bat. (He) is really
developing and growing as a result.”
With the loss, Serra toils in sixth place,
falling to 4-6 in WCAL play and 10-9 over-
all.

Colin Kaepernick defends reputation
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco 49ers
quarterback Colin Kaepernick is defending
his reputation.
Kaepernick put out a statement on his
Twitter account Friday, a day after his name
was linked to a Miami police report involv-
ing a woman who passed out in a hotel and
later woke up in a hospital not knowing
how she got there.
Referring to some media reports on the
situation, Kaepernick said: “I take great
pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess
sometimes you have to deal with someone
who makes things up.” He told fans their
faith in him is not misplaced.
Police say Kaepernick, teammate Quinton
Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo
Lockette were with the woman earlier this
month at a Miami hotel where Lockette
lives. The police say it’s too early to deter-
mine whether a crime was committed.

One of the most favorable reasons for owning a home as your personal

Areas such as the San Francrsco Bay Area and Sr|rcon Va||ey, where many

rallied for 72. The Aussie was among those
four shots back, still solidly in contention
to become only the fourth back-to-back
winner in Masters history.
Watson opened Thursday with a 69 and
went bogey-free through the first 26 holes,
finally stumbling at the ninth. But that
bogey was quickly forgotten when he put on
a dazzling display of the golf that had the
patrons roaring. He took advantage of both
par 5s, sandwiched around a curling, 40-foot
birdie putt at the 14th that prompted him to
throw both arms in the air.
Watson made it five in a row at the par-3
16th, pulling off another magnificent tee
shot with the 9-iron, the ball rolling up
about 4 feet short of the flag. He became
only the fifth player in Masters history to
run off nothing but birdies from the 12th to
16th holes.
Ayear ago, the left-hander finished in a tie
for 50th last year as the defending Masters
champion, his worst showing in five previ-
ous appearances. He likes being two years
removed from his title a whole lot better.
“I was in awe when I was the champion,”
Watson said. “I didn’t know how to handle it
the best way, so I didn’t play my best golf.”
Watson’s closest pursuer was Australia’s
John Senden, who birdied 14 and 15 on his
way to a 68 and 140 overall.
Scott bogeyed three of the first five holes
but wound up at 141. He was joined by
Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn, who birdied four
of the last five holes for a 68; Sweden’s
Jonas Blixt, who managed 71 despite a dou-
ble-bogey at the 11th; and 20-year-old
Jordan Spieth, hardly looking like an
Augusta rookie when he closed out 70 with a
birdie at the tough finishing hole.
Five shots back with Couples were Jimmy
Walker, a three-time PGA Tour winner this
season who shot 72, and Jim Furyk, whose
68 matched Watson, Senden and Bjorn for
the best round of the day.
First-round leader Bill Haas, teeing off on
a warm, sunny afternoon with the wind
picking up and the greens getting firmer,
was still at 4 under approaching the turn.
Then came a miserable stretch of holes
starting at No. 9: bogey, bogey, double-
bogey, bogey, bogey. He staggered to a 78
— 10 shots higher than the day before,
knocking him nine shots back.
At least Haas gets to keep playing.
Three-time winner Phil Mickelson missed
the Augusta cut for the first time since 1997.

By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Abruptly on the spot as
the new face of “Obamacare,” Sylvia
Mathews Burwell faces steep challenges,
both logistical and political.
Burwell, until now White House budget
director, was named by President Barack
Obama on Friday to replace Health and
Human Services Secretary Kathleen
Sebelius, who oversaw the messy rollout of
the health care overhaul. Now the new secre-
tary must keep the complex program run-
ning smoothly and somehow help restore a
cooperative dialogue with Republicans who
are hoping to use the law’s problems to
regain control of the Senate in November.
At an upbeat Rose Garden event, Obama
showered praise on Sebelius, a hero for his
party’s liberal base, whose impending
retirement had been a tightly guarded secret.
The president ignored calls for Sebelius to
resign last fall, after the website for con-
sumers to enroll in new
coverage experienced
weeks of crippling tech-
nical problems. Last
month, as it started to
look like sign-ups would
beat expectations,
Sebelius approached the
White House about step-
ping aside, officials said.
“Under Kathleen’s lead-
ership, her team at HHS
turned the corner, got it fixed, got the job
done,” Obama said. “And the final score
speaks for itself.” About 7.5 million people
have signed up for subsidized private health
insurance through the new law, exceeding
an original target of 7 million widely
thought to be unattainable because of the
website problems.
Obama quickly pivoted to Burwell, 48, a
low-profile Washington veteran now serv-
ing as his budget chief. He stressed her role
last year in helping to end a government
shutdown and reach a two-year budget deal
with a politically divided
Congress.
“Sylvia is a proven
manager, and she knows
how to deliver results,”
Obama said.
Senate Finance
Committee Chairman
Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who
will hold confirmation
hearings for Burwell,
said there’s an opportuni-
ty for her to move the health care debate
beyond stalemate.
While a political truce is unlikely over
Obama’s health overhaul, Wyden ticked off
a list of other issues where Republicans and
Democrats might be able to find compro-
mise. Among them: revamping the way
Medicare pays doctors, providing coordi-
nated care for patients with chronic illness-
es and using data to encourage delivery of
quality health care at lower cost.
Although health care spending has grown
at historically low rates during Obama’s
tenure, a reviving economy could stoke cost
problems anew for businesses, government
programs and consumers.
Health and Human Services is a $1 trillion
agency that plays a key role in American
society and the economy. More than 100
million people receive coverage through
Medicare, Medicaid, and now Obama’s
health law. The secretary also oversees the
Food and Drug Administration, which regu-
lates a broad range of consumer products,
and the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, the front line for public health.
But Burwell could have her hands full
addressing issues with the health care law,
predicted Brookings Institution health
economist Mark McClellan.
“Don’t underestimate the remaining
implementation challenges for the
Affordable Care Act,” said McClellan, who
oversaw the rollout of the Medicare drug
benefit for President George W. Bush. “It’s
true that the first open enrollment season is
over, but that was just the front end of the
implementation process.”

Obama to focus civil
rights message on voting
WASHINGTON — A day after hailing the
Civil Rights Act as a lasting legacy of
Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidency, President
Barack Obama is using another civil rights
forum to issue an election-year warning
against erosion of the Voting Rights Act,
the landmark 1965 law that helped pave
Obama’s path in politics.
On Friday, Obama was to address Al
Sharpton’s National Action Network confer-
ence in New York where, the White House
says, the president will take issue with
Republican measures in some states that
make it more difficult for Americans to vote.
Obama’s speech at the annual conference
sponsored by the civil rights activist and
television talk host is part of the adminis-
tration’s effort to mobilize voters and push
back against state voting restrictions
prompted by last year’s Supreme Court
invalidation of a key provision of the
Voting Rights Act.
For the remainder of the year, no political
issue stands out more prominently for
Democrats than their ability to motivate
voters to turn out at the polls in November.
Control of the Senate, now in the hands of
Democrats, is at stake, as is Obama’s
already limited ability to push his agenda
through Congress.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — It’s the silent enemy in
our retirement accounts: High fees.
And now a new study finds that the typical
401(k) fees — adding up to a modest-sound-
ing 1 percent a year — would erase $70,000
from an average worker’s account over a
four-decade career compared with lower-cost
options. To compensate for the higher fees,
someone would have to work an extra three
years before retiring.
The study comes from the Center for
American Progress, a liberal think tank. Its
analysis, backed by industry and govern-
ment data, suggests that U.S. workers,
already struggling to save enough for retire-
ment, are being further held back by fund
costs.
“The corrosive effect of high fees in many
of these retirement accounts forces many
Americans to work years longer than neces-
sary or than planned,” the report, being
released Friday, concludes.
Most savers have only a vague idea how
much they’re paying in 401(k) fees or what
alternatives exist, though the information
is provided in often dense and complex fund
statements. High fees seldom lead to high
returns. And critics say they hurt ordinary
investors — much more so than, say, Wall
Street’s high-speed trading systems, which
benefit pros and have increasingly drawn
the eye of regulators.
Consider what would happen to a 25-year-
old worker, earning the U.S. median income
of $30,500, who puts 5 percent of his or her
pay in a 401(k) account and whose employ-
er chips in another 5 percent:
• If the plan charged 0.25 percent in annu-
al fees, a widely available low-cost option,
and the investment return averaged 6.8 per-
cent a year, the account would equal
$476,745 when the worker turned 67 (the
age he or she could retire with full Social
Security benefits).
• If the plan charged the typical 1 percent,
the account would reach only $405,454 — a
$71,000 shortfall.
• If the plan charged 1.3 percent — com-
mon for 401 (k) plans at small companies
— the account would reach $380,649, a
$96,000 shortfall. The worker would have
to work four more years to make up the gap.
(The analysis assumes the worker’s pay
rises 3.6 percent a year. )
The higher fees often accompany funds
that try to beat market indexes by actively
buying and selling securities. Index funds,
which track benchmarks such as the
Standard & Poor’s 500, don’t require active
management and typically charge lower
fees.
With stocks having hit record highs
before being clobbered in recent days, many
investors have been on edge over the mar-
ket’s ups and downs. But experts say timing
the market is nearly impossible. By con-
trast, investors can increase their returns by
limiting their funds’ fees.
Most stock funds will match the perform-
ance of the entire market over time, so those
with the lowest management costs will gen-
erate better returns, said Russel Kinnel,
director of research for Morningstar.
“Fees are a crucial determinant of how well
you do,” Kinnel said.
The difference in costs can be dramatic.
Each fund discloses its “expense ratio.”
This is the cost of operating the fund as a
percentage of its assets. It includes things
like record-keeping and legal expenses.
Fees may be shrinking your 401(k)

does, is go through those websites for the students and pulls
all the information into one site and condenses it and gives
you facts, pictures and other various linking,” Lieberman
said.
There are no ads, no spam and Harvix uses a unique algo-
rithm that filters out things that are irrelevant to a search,
Narkizian, 16, said. Unlike other mass search engines, the
trio have keen insight into what students want, Narkizian
said.
“Google is trying to generalize searching for almost every
single person. But we’re students and we’re trying to help
specifically students,” Narkizian said.
Harvix’s main page appears like other search engines, but
Lieberman said it’s anything but.
“I checked out the site, I searched something random,”
Lieberman said. “It came up with not only facts, but pictures
and links to other sources. But the facts were right there, you
could find what you wanted pretty easily. These facts were
coming from all different websites so it took the website
from Google, condensed the facts, and put it all on one page
which is helpful because one, it saves time and two, it gives
you good facts without the hassle of going through 10 or 15
pages.”
They’ve been beta testing Harvix and trying to get more
schools to use it, Skrenta said. Recently, they had the San
Carlos Charter Learning Center give it a spin, Skrenta said.
Even though they’re in the heart of the tech startup indus-
try, the fact that Skrenta has already been programming for
years is anything but ordinary, Lieberman said.
“People go to college to learn how to code, they take
school classes to learn how to code. You don’t see very often
a middle schooler who can make his own research engine that
is fully functional and works very efficiently, which is some-
thing that’s very unique about our project. It doesn’t just look
professional, it’s made by teenagers who want to provide
something that they themselves have needed in the past,”
Lieberman said.
Undoubtedly, continually programming a website is too
much for a full-time high school student so Skrenta said he’s
developed an international network of about 20 kids who
help. As a professional programmer, his dad is always avail-
able to help out as well; but Skrenta said he’s taking home
some pretty valuable real-world business lessons all on his
own.
“I think it’s pretty cool because you don’t really get this
kind of experience going to school or sometimes there’s
entrepreneur classes available to kids, but not a lot. I think
it’s been really interesting working with a company, ”
Skrenta said. “I definitely feel better about my business career
now that I have more experience, but I definitely think I want
to be a computer programmer/entrepreneur applying comput-
er skills to solving business problems.”

Robert Gay of the San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector
Control District said in a prepared statement. “We are doing
everything to help ensure this mosquito does not become
established in our communities.”
The Aedes aegypti mosquitoes were first detected Jan. 22
and the latest April 10. The mosquito species was found in the
same area last summer too.
The species is not native to California but is common in
urban areas of the southeastern United States.
No illnesses have been reported so far.
In response to the mosquito presence, the district expand-
ed surveillance efforts including traps for adults and eggs in
areas where they were found and door-to-door inspections of
properties for breeding and standing water.
The mosquitoes are about a quarter-inch long and black and
white. They bite most often during the day and can transmit
viruses not currently found in California including dengue,
yellow fever, chikungunya and several others that cause
encephalitis.
This mosquito was previously found in San Mateo County
in 1979 near San Francisco International Airport but suc-
cessfully eradicated.
The district asks the public to avoid or reduce the chances
of bites by taking the following precautions: apply insect
repellents that contain DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon euca-
lyptus or IR 3535 and follow label instructions; make sure
that doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep out
mosquitoes and repair or replace screens with tears or holes;
eliminate standing water and containers that can hold water
from around the home; report neglected swimming pools to
the district; wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when
possible; and, use mosquito netting over infant carriers,
cribs and strollers.
Report bites during the day to the San Mateo County
Mosquito and Vector Control District at 344- 8592 and get
more information at www.smcmad.org.

On March 24, Wagstaffe, flanked by countywide law
enforcement, announced the indictments which came after
an 18-month long investigation into a series of murders,
shootings and other crimes. Wagstaffe called the case eas-
ily the most massive one prosecuted in the office’s histo-
ry. The criminal grand jury spent two months weighing
evidence — eight times longer than any other ever con-
ducted in San Mateo County.
The investigation, nicknamed “Operation Sunny Day”
in reference to the code word used by gangmembers to indi-
cate a completed murder, nabbed 16 defendants ranging in
age from 19 to 28. Aside from murder, the charged crimes
spanning the Peninsula include attempted murder, firearms
possession, attempted robbery, conspiracy, drug traffick-
ing, dissuading witnesses and bribery. The crimes stem
from five primary acts of violence beginning Sept. 30,
2012, with a Belmont drive-by shooting on southbound
Highway 101 when the Da Vill and Sac Street gangs of East
Palo Alto teamed up against the Taliban gang of East Palo
Alto and Menlo Park.
Wagstaffe’s office has a history of not making a death
penalty decision early in a case, instead often waiting
until closer to trial to announce what prosecutors seek.
DeMeester said that is too late if the goal is not racking up
undue expense.
DeMeester said it’s too early how much his client’s
defense case might incur but coupled with the eight other
subjects and based on similar undertakings in other coun-
ties he estimated up into the millions of dollars. One of the
charged murders occurred in San Francisco rather than San
Mateo County which DeMeester said is another way the
county is hitting up local taxpayers unnecessarily.
DeMeester also dismissed the idea that seeking life with-
out the possibility of parole instead of death for his client
and the others is lenient.
Bustos-Montes, 24, of East Palo Alto was indicted along
with Raymond Bradford, 28, of East Palo Alto; Nina
Mehrnoosh Cragg, 23, of Palo Alto; Ralph Vernon Fields
Jr., 26, of East Palo Alto, Emmanuel Hyland, 25, of East
Palo Alto; Tyrone Love-Lopez, 21, of East Palo Alto; Eric
Valencia Vargas, 20, of East Palo Alto; Marvin Jake Ware,
26, of East Palo Alto, Donte Demon Jordan, 19, of East
Palo Alto; Roshawn Bickham, 25 of Hayward; LaQuisha
Walker, 27, of East Palo Alto; Leonard James Gaines, 21,
of East Palo Alto; Rodney Levence Mitchell, 22, of
Newark; Robert Wheller Jr., 26, of Hayward; Jerry Coneal
III, 19, of Menlo Park and Miguel Angel Rivera Jr., 23, of
East Palo Alto.
On Friday, all but the few defendants still not yet in
county custody delayed pleas until June 16 so that their
attorneys can first review the amended indictment and the
evidence. They are held on amounts ranging from
$500,000 to no bail.
Vargas, Ware and Bradford are charged in the Belmont
attempted murder and Bradford is also charged with the
attempted robbery in a Middlefield Road jewelry store heist
that ended with the clerk pulling out a shotgun.
Bustos-Montes, DeMeester’s client, is charged with
Vargas and Hyland in the Oct. 5, 2012 fatal shooting of
Christopher Baker, 21, in East Palo Alto. The gang war
also claimed Stoney Gipson in San Francisco on Oct. 7,
2012, Jonathan Neri Alzacar on Jan. 14, 2013, in East
Palo Alto and Lamont Darnell Coleman, 21, on Jan. 16,
2013, in East Palo Alto.
In between the murders, the defendants allegedly com-
mitted numerous other crimes including shootings and dis-
suading witnesses.

Stocks across all sectors dropped Friday. The tech-driven
Nasdaq composite index fell 54.37 points, or 1.3 percent
to 3,999.73 to punctuate a punishing week, and is down 8
percent since early March, when it hit a 14-year closing
high of 4,358. Last year, the Nasdaq soared 38 percent.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 17.39 points, or
0.95 percent, to 1,815.69 Friday. The S&P 500 is 4 per-
cent off its recent high on April 2.
Optimists expect a rebound. They point out that tech-
nology remains a bright spot in an otherwise dreary econ-
omy as software, computers, mobile devices and the
Internet fill increasingly instrumental roles in work, enter-
tainment and communications.
“Tech is where the action is,” says longtime industry
analyst Roger Kay.
Pessimists view the tech sector as Ground Zero for a
long-overdue reckoning. They say the stock market has
been pumped up by the flood of money that the Federal
Reserve has funneled into the long-term bond market since
the financial meltdown of 2008 decimated the economy.
Now that those government-backed bond purchases are
tapering off, people are starting to realize “the only thing
holding this balloon up is the Fed blowing air in it,” said
Fred Hickey, editor of The High-Tech Strategist newsletter.
That’s why he believes investors are parachuting from
stocks that had soared to dizzying heights in a short peri-
od of time.
Internet video subscription service Netflix Inc., for
instance, nearly quadrupled in value last year to top the
charts of the bellwether Standard & Poor’s 500 index. The
company was worth $27 billion by the time its stock
peaked at $458 early last month. At that price, investors
were paying the equivalent of $117 for every $1 of
Netflix’s projected earnings. Investors were betting
Netflix will become increasingly prosperous as the number
of U.S. subscribers to its $8-per-month video steaming
services swells from 33 million at the end of last year to
management’s long-term hopes for 90 million.

Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, left, and bassist Christ Novecelic, right, are joined by Sonic Youth lead singer Kim Gordon, during Nirvana’s
induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Thursday night. Gordon was filling in for Kurt Cobain, the late Nirvana lead man who
committed suicide 20 years ago this month.

NEWYORK — Kiss made up, but its music
went unheard. Nirvana used four women
rockers to sing Kurt Cobain’s songs. And
Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band — pre-
dictably — turned its honor into a
marathon.
The three acts were ushered into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday in a col-
orful induction ceremony at Brooklyn’s
Barclays Center. They were joined by the
blue-eyed soul duo Hall & Oates, British
rocker Peter Gabriel, 1970s folkie Cat
Stevens and the absent Linda Ronstadt.
Nirvana was the emotional centerpiece.
The trio rooted in the Seattle-area punk rock
scene was voted into the hall in its first year
of eligibility. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” hit
like a thunderclap upon its 1991 release, but
the band was done after Kurt Cobain com-
mitted suicide 20 years ago this month.
“Nirvana fans walk up to me every day and
say thank you for the music,” said Krist
Novoselic, the band’s bass player, who was
inducted with drummer Dave Grohl. “When I
hear that, I think of Kurt Cobain.”
A subdued Courtney Love, Cobain’s
widow, was booed by some in the audience.
She said Cobain would have appreciated the
honor.
“Nirvana tapped into a voice that was
yearning to be heard,” said former R.E.M.
singer Michael Stipe, who described how
the band made a community of the disaffect-
ed.
Joan Jett was chosen to sing “Smells Like
Teen Spirit.” Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth,
St. Vincent and Lorde each took turns at the

I
think the classic song “Graduation,”
by Vitamin C is a lie. The lyrics of
this song, which is also called
“Friends For Ever,” states that “As our lives
change, come whatever. We will still be
friends forever.” I don’t believe that friend-
ships can last a lifetime, so the phrase
“friends forever,” means little to me. Now
before you write me off as a pessimistic
Debbie Downer, I’d like
to say that I personally
identify myself as an
optimistic realist.
Recently, we discussed
in my psychology class
how there are four deter-
mining factors that one
considers when they are
considering whether to
engage in a relationship (When I say the
word “relationship,” I am referring to any
type of relationship, especially friend-
ship). These four factors are proximity,
similarity, self-disclosure and physical
attractiveness. While the importance of
each of these factors is weighed slightly
differently, I think that proximity ends up
being the determinant of most relation-
ships.
Not seeing an individual regularly just
makes it extremely hard to sustain a rela-
tionship. I know we like to think other-
wise, but if we were uprooted and had to
move half way across the country, we would
probably make a new batch of friends and
grow farther and farther apart from our old
friends in our old home.
From experience, I know that I, for one,
am terrible at maintaining friendships with
someone that I don’t see regularly. Even in
high school, my circle of friends evolves
slightly each year. While I have a constant
group of closest friends, the determining
factor of some of my other relationships is
whether we have a class together. So even
though we all go to school together, it is
extremely easy to grow apart. Likewise, my
best friends from middle school, who I
promised to keep in touch with, and I have
grown farther and farther apart with each
passing year of high school. We all live in
the same city, but we go to separate high
schools. Maybe proximity isn’t the only
thing to blame, I mean, I do live within 10

NEW YORK — James Franco insists he’s
not been nervous at all about making his
Broadway debut, not even before his first
night in front of more than a thousand people.
“Sounds like I’m bragging. I just wasn’t,”
says the actor, writer and student. “I’ve learned
that if you work with people that you trust,
that you depend on, then you just flow with
it.”
One of those people is
his director Anna D.
Shapiro, a Tony Award-
winner who looks over at
him during a joint inter-
view in the empty mezza-
nine of the Longacre
Theatre with a mixture of
puzzlement and respect.
“He’s not nervous. He’s
not lying,” she says. “Whatever he needs to
do to convince himself to do what he does, I
don’t care. I like the guy who shows up every
day, so I don’t care what does it.”
Whether it’s ego or confidence, Franco is
just a guy who doesn’t doubt himself. From
acting in TV and films like “Pineapple
Express” and “Spider-Man” to screenwriting,
directing and producing, or writing a novel,
Franco calm about Broadway debut

LAKE BUENAVISTA, Fla. — The timeless
Disney tune “It’s a Small World” that wafts
through our memories from past theme park
vacations turns 50 this year, and on
Thursday, Disney parks worldwide hosted a
global sing-along.
At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, a
huge chorus of the song was performed in
front of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom
by cast members and a children’s choir from
Central Florida Performing Arts.
The kids — who didn’t seem to mind belt-
ing out several takes of what some consider
an earworm — sang for a live broadcast on
“Good Morning America.” Tributes to the
song will also be held throughout the park
all day, and other parks around the world also
held sing-alongs.
Not that the parks are in short supply of
the song on any regular day. Disney officials
estimate that during a 16-hour operating day,
the song is played, on average, 1,200 times.
It was written by Richard and Robert
Sherman at the request of Walt Disney him-
self. The brothers won Academy Awards in
1965 for the music for “Mary Poppins.”
The “It’s a Small World” song and anima-
tronic attraction debuted at the 1964 New
York World’s Fair. It was shipped to
Disneyland in California then recreated at
the other Disney parks. The attraction
opened at the Florida park in 1971.
While some adults may complain about
the infectious nature of the song, the gentle
boat ride is a calm and air-conditioned
respite from the crowds and heat — and little
kids love it.
With its hundreds of costumed dolls, the
attraction was considered high-tech back in
the 1970s. It’s definitely different than many
of the other new theme park offerings these
days. There’s no 3D, no complicated story-
line.
“I think ‘It’s a Small World,’ because of the
message that it brings, really does resonate
with the audience,” said Gary Landrum, a
Walt Disney World Imagineer and archivist
from California. “It was really one of the
first of what became the classic Disney
theme park attractions. It’s a beautiful story,
it’s a simple story that I think the public
really connects with.”
On Thursday morning, Chris Pini, his wife
and their two children raced to the Small
World ride first thing.
“I came down here as a kid and rode this
with my parents, and now I’m getting the
chance to take my kids on it,” he said. “It’s
awesome, I know it’s been around here for 50
years and it’s an amazing ride.”
‘It’s a Small World’ turns 50

The iconic Disneyland ride ‘It’s a Small World’ celebrated its 50th anniversary with a
worldwide sing-along. It is estimated the song is played an average of 1,200 times a day.

BUTTE, Mont. — A struggle for control
over a festival that draws thousands of stunt-
men, wannabes and fans paying homage to
Evel Knievel in his Montana hometown has
led organizers to turn over the event to the
famous daredevil’s family.
Chad Harrington, executive director of
Evel Knievel Week Inc., said the group
decided Tuesday night to cut ties with the
Evel Knievel Days event.
“Our committee, by no means, wants to
hinder or impede the direction that your fam-
ily would like to go with Evel Knievel Days
and the Evel Knievel name,” Harrington’s
committee wrote in a letter to Butte-Silver
Bow Chief Executive Matt Vincent, who is
married to Knievel’s daughter.
Kelly Knievel, Evel’s oldest son, said he
was “committed to having another success-
ful festival this July.”
But one unnamed, out-of-state sponsor
already has pulled out over the dispute,
Harrington said, which raises questions
about the future of the three-day celebration
of stunts, jumps and feats.
Knievel was a flamboyant motorcycle
stuntman who jumped lines of cars and
buses, and attempted to hurdle sharks,
canyons and just about anything else. He
died in 2007, five years after the first Evel
Knievel Days was held in Butte.
The dispute over the festival began when
Kelly Knievel sought a new licensing agree-
ment with Butte-Silver Bow County for the
use of his father’s name, which the family
owns.
He said he had concerns about the organiz-
ing committee’s finances and whether it has
followed bylaws and its reporting require-
ments, The Montana Standard reported.
Organizers back out of
Evel Knievel festival
Music fest kicks off in French Quarter
NEW ORLEANS — When the first French
Quarter Festival launched in 1984, traditional
jazz clarinetist Tim Laughlin recalls there was
little interest and most of the streets in the 16-
block area were largely empty.
“You could shoot a cannon down Bourbon
Street and not hit anyone,” Laughlin said.
That’s not likely to be the case this weekend
for what Laughlin calls the world’s greatest
block party.
The free festival was conceived to draw local
residents back to the historic district after the
underwhelming world’s fair of 1984.
It now attracts hundreds of thousands annu-
ally to hear musicians representing genres
from traditional and contemporary jazz to
R&B, New Orleans funk, brass bands, Latin
and zydeco.

IT’S GOING TO BE A SHOW BOAT
SUMMER AT SAN FRANCISCO
OPERA: Both a poignant love story and a
powerful reminder of the bitter legacy of
racism, Show Boat was a theatre landmark
that contributed such now standard songs as
“Ol’ Man River,” “Make Believe,” and
“Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.” Based on the
novel Show Boat by Edna Ferber, with
music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Oscar
Hammerstein II. Sung in English with
English supertitles. Approximate running
time is two hours and 45 minutes including
one intermission.
Ten performances are scheduled from June
1 to July 2.
WHAT’S SHOWBOATALLABOUT?:
Show boats were floating theaters that trav-
eled along the major rivers of the United
States from the 1870s to the 1930s. The
performers lived aboard the vessels and pro-
vided entertainment for small riverside
towns that were otherwise quite isolated.
Ferber’s 1926 novel chronicles the lives of
three generations of performers on the
Cotton Blossom, a show boat on the
Mississippi. The story progresses from the
post-Civil War era to Gilded-Age Chicago to
Roaring ’20s New York, and finally returns
to the Mississippi River. The musical
opened on Broadway on Dec. 27, 1927, and
has been adapted for film three times, and
for television once.
OPERA PARTICULARS: The home of
the San Francisco Opera is the 1932 War
Memorial Opera House at 301 Van Ness Ave.
One of the last Beaux-Arts structures erected
in the United States, the Opera House has
3,146 seats plus 200 standing-room places.
Tickets are available at sfopera.com, 415-
864-3330, or at the box office. Whether
you’re a newcomer, opera aficionado or
somewhere in between, enhance your expe-
rience by attending pre-show talks.
Presented by music scholars, these 25-
minute overviews of the show are free to
ticketholders and take place in the main the-
ater in the Orchestra section, 55 minutes
prior to each performance.
OPERA HOUSE ACCESSIBILITY:
Accommodations for people in wheelchairs
or people with disabilities and their com-
panions or attendants can be made by call-
ing (415) 864-3330. Wheelchair accessible
seating is also available online. Please let
the Box Office know if your wheelchair sta-
tus changes so that your seating will be cor-
rect when you arrive. Assistive listening
devices (Sennheiser model) are available for
hearing-impaired patrons and may be
obtained at the North or South Lobby coat
check. ID Deposit is required.
Text-to-Voice Supertitles: Live Titles,
headsets that provide a spoken version of
the projected supertitles, are now available
at the North Lobby coat check at all per-
formances. A major credit card or driver’s
license is required for deposit. Large print
cast and synopsis sheets are available at the
North and South Lobby coat check
***
A PLACE TO EAT: Why worry about
missing curtain up? Have dinner at the
Opera House Café, in the lower lobby of the
Opera House. The Café opens two hours
before each evening and Sunday matinee
performance and serves both a buffet dinner
and a la carte dishes. Dining just steps from
your seat eliminates worries about missing
the beginning of the performance (which
begins EXACTLY on time with no seating
for latecomers.) You can also arrange to
have coffee and dessert waiting for you at
intermission.

NEWYORK — Suddenly, it seems, Olga is everywhere.
For Olga Peretyatko, the past year has seen a dizzying
series of debuts that have thrust the 33-year-old Russian
soprano into sudden prominence. These have included
Berlin and Milan’s La Scala (Rimsky-Korsakov’s “The
Tsar’s Bride”), Verona and Zurich (Verdi’s “Rigoletto”) and
the summer Salzburg Festival (Mozart’s “Lucio Silla”).
Now she’s in New York to face critics and audiences at the
Metropolitan Opera, singing a touchstone role of the bel
canto repertory, the madness-prone
Elvira in Vincenzo Bellini’s “I Puritani.”
That wasn’t the original plan. When
she signed a Met contract in 2009, her
debut was to be as the Fiakermilli, a
stratospherically challenging but small
role in Richard Strauss’ “Arabella.”
“I was happy. Nobody knew me,”
Peretyatko said in an interview backstage
at the Met during a break from rehearsals.
“But with each year since, I became better
known, and I told them I’d prefer some-
thing more interesting than these three
minutes of music!”
As luck would have it, soprano Natalie Dessay withdrew
from plans to sing Elvira and the Met offered the role to
Peretyatko.
“I told my husband (conductor Michele Mariotti) and he
said, ‘Yeah, I’m conducting that!”’ she recalled. “So finally
we’re together for two months, because normally we are
weeks without seeing each other and it’s quite difficult.”
How does Peretyatko, who exudes robust good humor and
self-confidence, approach portraying one of the most emo-
tionally fragile heroines in all of opera?
“The role of the woman in this time (Puritan England) was
just nothing,” she said. “Your brothers and fathers have
decided everything for you, and you should just say yes. Or
say no, and kill yourself.
“Musically, Elvira has everything,” she added. “From the
young girl who expects to be happy, to her mad scene. And
this is actually one of the rare cases in these operas where
the soprano doesn’t die at the end.”
The last time the Met revived “I Puritani,” in 2006, it

Two Paris exhibits shed light on first World War
PARIS — Irish photographer Mike Sheil says he knew
nothing about military history before he began taking
photos of World War I battlefields.
“I just thought with the centenary coming up it was a
good idea for some photographs,” Sheil said in Paris,
where he inaugurated an exhibit of his work: Fields of
Battle-Lands of Peace 14-18.
The 79 large photographs hang on the wrought iron
fence around Paris’ Jardin du Luxembourg park. The French
senate, which sponsored the exhibition, expects more
than 2.5 million people to see the free exhibit by the time
it leaves Paris on Aug. 4 and moves to London’s St.
James’s Park.

miles of most. But regularly seeing one another plays a
huge role in the longevity of my relationships.
Now, on the other hand, I do have some friends that liter-
ally live across the country. These friends are people I met
during my five-week journalism program in Chicago this
year. While we might not talk on daily, we make it a point
to check in with each other regularly. My point is, you real-
ly get as much as you put in, and nothing is forever. I know
that, despite our best efforts, my friends from my journalism
program and I will eventually lose track of each other.
My friends for the past four years of high school and I
will, slowly but surely, become strangers again. Despite
the fact that we all probably know this at the back of our
minds, I also know that come yearbook signing time,
there will be hundreds of “keep in touch” message
exchanges. As we bid each other good-bye on graduation
day, we will make promises (some of these futile) to hang
out when we’re on winter break and back home from col-
lege. Even though we truly hope these reunions will mate-
rialize, life gets in the way and takes you by storm. We are
constantly meeting new people, and making new friends.
And that’s not a bad thing.
It’s bittersweet to think that some of my best friends and I
won’t last, but it’s what happens. Life doesn’t stop for any-
one. At different chapters of my life, I will have different peo-
ple to whom I’m close. But knowing these facts aren’t going
to make me stop promising to keep in touch with people.
Knowing this will simply makes it a little bit less sad for me
when I look through old photos and see all the people I don’t
talk to anymore. Even though we might not be friends forev-
er as the song suggests, “as we go on, we remember all the
times we had together” (also taken from the lyrics of
“Graduation.”) I guess Vitamin C wasn’t so wrong after all.

being an artist and studying for postgraduate degrees, Franco
jumps in.
So this matinee idol multi-tasker naturally has been eyeing
the one place in show business he hasn’t really dominated —
the stage. Franco has chosen to make his Times Square bow in
“Of Mice and Men,” John Steinbeck’s play adapted from his
own classic novel.
Franco co-stars with Chris O’Dowd as two tragic migrant
workers trying to make their way through the aftermath of
drought and the Depression in 1930s America. Because
O’Dowd’s Lennie is mentally handicapped, Franco’s George
acts as Lennie’s guardian. The play also features Jim Norton
and Leighton Meester.
“I’ve got the best: I’ve got an awesome, classic American
play. I’ve got an awesome director. I’ve got awesome co-stars.
It’s not going to get better,” says Franco. “If it fails, I’m not
going to feel bad because I did everything possible.
Absolutely everything possible. So it’s not on me.”
Franco in person is amiable but slightly smug, a scruffy guy
who loves to talk about his creative thinking and yet looks
overworked, stretched thin and sleep-deprived. He mentions
that Lady Gaga recently stopped by backstage, as if such a
thing weren’t even a little bit odd.
The off-putting squinty sneer he was so vilified for wearing
as an Oscar host reappears at times and his outsized confidence
combined with a puppy-like naivete seem a dangerous gambit
in these cynical days, as his recent Instagram flirtation with a
17-year-old proved.
When asked the exact moment when he knew he could
accomplish the rare task of impressing critics and the public
on his debut, he looks slightly confused. The interesting
answer comes from his director: “He’s never not thought
that.”
Franco says he’d been thinking about Broadway five years
ago when the idea of teaming up with Shapiro on “Of Mice and
Men” was first discussed. Plans fell through but the pair found
a way to make it work this season.

CNN replacing Morgan with specials
NEWYORK — CNN is abandoning the talk show that
anchored its prime-time schedule for three decades with
Larry King and Piers Morgan in favor of several docu-
mentarylike series with personalities like Anthony
Bourdain, Mike Rowe and John Walsh.
The network, which revealed the schedule change in a
meeting with advertisers Thursday, also said it would air a
nightly newscast at 10 p.m. ET with a rotating series of
hosts.
Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” travelogue became CNN’s
most popular show upon its debut last year and increased
the network’s taste for nonfiction programming that
wouldn’t be susceptible to the ratings troughs that occur
when news is slow.
Bourdain’s series, which currently airs on Sunday
nights, will be part of the mix of programming for the
weeknight 9 p.m. time slot that Morgan abandoned a few
weeks ago. Morgan Spurlock’s “Inside Man” series will
also be part of that mix.
Other programs that will rotate out of that time slot
include “Somebody’s Gotta Do It,” where former “Dirty
Jobs” host Rowe will profile people with unusual profes-
sions. Walsh, longtime host of “America’s Most
Wanted,” will do a show on criminal investigations. Lisa
Ling will host a show, “Our America,” where she immers-
es herself in American subcultures.

microphone, with Lorde’s version of
“All Apologies” ending the night.
Kiss was responsible for pre-ceremo-
ny drama. The two original members
still active, Gene Simmons and Paul
Stanley, thought the replacements for
ex-bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter
Criss should perform at the ceremony
instead of the original four. The result
was Kiss’s music went unheard.
Still, the estranged band members
spoke warmly of each other when the
quartet appeared behind the micro-
phone. “In and out of makeup, I’ll
always be the Catman,” said drummer
Criss, referencing his makeup in the
band. “You’ve got to forgive to live.”
The band received a crowd-pleasing
endorsement from Rage Against the
Machine’s Tom Morello, who said Kiss
inspired him to play music. He said he
had to fight off high school bullies who
ridiculed him for liking the band.
“Tonight proves beyond a shadow of a
doubt that the high school bullies and
critics were wrong,” he said. “Kiss fans
were right.”
Springsteen’s 1999 entrance into the
Rock Hall without the E Street Band was
a sore point for some of its members.
They got their due Thursday in the side-
men category, although it was a posthu-
mous honor for saxman Clarence
Clemons and keyboard player Danny
Federici.
Their leader recalled a kitchen conver-
sation 15 years ago with his buddy and
bandmate, Steve Van Zandt. Springsteen
took pride in his independence and the
band was only beginning to repair rela-
tions after a decade apart. He had no
problem being inducted alone.
“Steve said, ‘yes, I understand,”’
Springsteen recalled, “‘but Bruce
Springsteen and the E Street Band, that’s
the legend.”’
So the band, known for its long con-
certs, made up for lost time. Their induc-
tion took 85 minutes, as individual
members ignored requests to keep their
speeches short. Then they took the
stage for performances of “The E Street
Shuffle,” “The River” and an epic
“Kitty’s Back.”
“Lucky for you, there are only two of
us,” Daryl Hall said when he was induct-
ed with partner John Oates. The duo was
a mainstay on the radio during the late
1970s and early 1980s. They performed
some of their hits — “She’s Gone,” “I
Can’t Go For That” and “You Make My
Dreams Come True” — although hitting
some of the high notes again was a
struggle.
Hall said he was surprised to learn that
his act was the only Philadelphia-bred
band in the hall.
Ronstadt, the sexy siren of the Los
Angeles country-rock scene of the
1970s, couldn’t make it to her induc-
tion. Now retired, she suffers from
Parkinson’s disease and doesn’t travel
much. Glenn Frey, who played with fel-
low future Eagle Don Henley in
Ronstadt’s backup band, saluted her
with an induction speech.
Ronstadt was saluted by some royalty
of female country rock. Carrie
Underwood sang “Different Drum,”
Ronstadt’s first hit with the Stone
Poneys. Emmylou Harris and Bonnie
Raitt joined for “Blue Bayou.” Sheryl
Crow and Frey made it a quintet to sing
“You’re No Good.” Then Stevie Nicks
came out to lead them in “It’s So Easy”
and “When Will I Be Loved.”
Nicks said hearing “Different Drum”
when she was in high school made her
want to get into music. “I didn’t look
that good in cutoffs, but that’s what I
was going to do,” she said.
Stevens, the 1970s era hitmaker who
left his music career behind when he
converted to Islam, seemed juice by the
honor, calling it “unexpectedly, but
strangely, outrageously rock ‘n’ roll.”
“I’m certainly not the best of you,” he
said. “But looking around, I’m not the
worst, either.”
He performed “Father and Son,” “Wild
World” and “Peace Train,” joined by a
robed choir in the final song.
Peter Gabriel wasn’t around for his
last induction in 2010, for his work as a
member of Genesis. “It feels better when
you’re here,” he said backstage.
Gabriel said aspiring musicians
should surround themselves with bril-
liance and, noting his early failures as a
drummer, shouldn’t be afraid to try dif-
ferent things.

starred another dark-haired Russian
beauty, Anna Netrebko, who famously
improvised during her mad scene by
lying on her back at the front of the
stage and singing with her head and
arms dangling over the orchestra pit.
Peretyatko has no intention of
repeating that maneuver, but said she
expects that “for sure I’ll be compared
to her. Everybody will talk about it. But
it’s OK, I know her. And I admire her.”
Peretyatko started singing profes-
sionally in the chorus of the Mariinsky
Theatre in St. Petersburg, where her
father is a long-time chorus member.
Initially she sang alto parts and
dreamed of a career as a mezzo-soprano.
But over time it became clear her natural
voice was much higher.
When she was 20, she said, her voice
teacher told her, “‘Yeah, you have a
beautiful voice, but my child, who told
you you were a mezzo?’ I was really
depressed for three days. OK: Carmen,
never!”
Still, for a coloratura soprano able to
reach well above high C, Peretyatko
boasts an unusually rich lower and mid-
dle register. She calls it “my wild card,”
and adds proudly: “I am a technical
freak.”
Already the Met has engaged her to
return in future seasons for several
roles, including another mad heroine,
Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor, ”
Gilda in “Rigoletto” and Violetta in
Verdi’s “La Traviata.”
“I Puritani,” also starring American
tenor Lawrence Brownlee, opens April
17 for a run of seven performances, end-
ing on the last night of the season, May
10.

diet and exercise routines will help you look and feel
better. Try different options, set some realistic goals
and build a program you can stick with.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Be sure to include
recreational or social events in your plans. Free yourself
from daily drudgery and embark on a day of fun and
entertainment with youngsters or close friends.

off more than you can chew. Don’t get discouraged.
Don’t let criticism get you down. Be proud of your

travel plans. You may want to explore somewhere new
or revisit a special location. Share your thoughts and

circumstances. Take a second look at your previous
efforts, and you will find a more advantageous route to
your personal goals.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Re-evaluate your career
goals. You could capitalize on a novel idea that you’d
set aside. An unconventional opportunity will come
your way through a previous friend or colleague.

anything that could be misinterpreted by others. Avoid

DONETSK, Ukraine — Ukraine’s prime
minister went on a charm offensive Friday
as he visited the country’s southeast, pledg-
ing to give regions more powers and to
defend the rights of Russian speakers.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk met with regional offi-
cials who once opposed his new govern-
ment in Kiev, but not with protesters occu-
pying government buildings in the cities of
Donetsk or Luhansk. Still, he left it unclear
how his ideas differed
from the demands of the
protesters or from
Russia’s advocacy of fed-
eralization for Ukraine.
“There are no sepa-
ratists among us,” said
Gennady Kernes, mayor
of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s
second-largest city,
where the government
recaptured a building
taken over by protesters earlier in the week.
Kernes and other officials asked Yatsenyuk
to allow votes on autonomy for their
regions but not on secession.
Ukraine’s government has resisted feder-
alization, saying that would lay the ground-
work for the country’s breakup.
Ukraine’s eastern industrial heartland was
the support base for Kremlin-friendly presi-
dent Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted in
February after months of protests. Last
month, the Crimea region voted to secede
and was annexed by Russia — but only after
Russia took over the peninsula by force.
Russia has ratcheted up the pressure on
Ukraine, with President Vladimir Putin
warning European leaders of a risk to the
gas supplies going to them through
Ukraine. He has threatened that Russia could
shut off energy shipments to Ukraine if it
fails to pay its debts. Those debts are a
source of contention between the two
nations, with the Russian estimate rising
from $1.7 billion earlier this month to over
$35 billion on Thursday.
Before leaving Donetsk for another east-
ern city, Yatsenyuk told reporters he favors
a peaceful solution to the standoff .
However, he left the door open to storming
the buildings occupied by armed men.

Palestinians condemn
Israeli sanctions as ’piracy’
JERUSALEM— The Palestinian negotia-
tor in Mideast peace talks is calling Israel’s
decision to stop tax money transfers “pira-
cy. ”
Saeb Erekat said Friday that “the Israeli
decision to withhold these funds is piracy.
... It cannot be maintained.” He also said
talks persist, though “gaps remain big.”
Erekat spoke a day after an Israeli official
said Israel would stop the tax money trans-
fers in retaliation for the Palestinians push-
ing to sign up for more recognition from
international agencies and treaties. That
comes after Israel failed to release
Palestinian prisoners as promised and
moved forward with more settlements in
land Palestinians want for their future capi-
tal.
Israel collects about $100 million a
month in taxes for the Palestinians. U.S.
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki
called the Israeli move “unfortunate” on
Friday.

PERTH, Australia — With the Malaysian
jetliner mystery now five weeks old, officials
have narrowed the search zone for the missing
plane and are “very confident” the underwater
signals they have heard are from its black box,
Australia’s prime minister said Friday.
At the same time, however, those electronic
signals are fading, Tony Abbott added.
On a visit to China, Abbott briefed President
Xi Jinping on the search for Flight 370, which
vanished March 8 while flying from Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing, carrying 239
people, most of them Chinese. Based on an
analysis of satellite data, officials believe the
Boeing 777 flew off-course for an unknown
reason and went down in the southern Indian
Ocean off the west coast of Australia.
Crews involved in the hunt have in recent
days focused on a more-targeted area in the
ocean for the source of the electronic signals,
Abbott said.
“We have very much narrowed down the
search area and we are very confident that the
signals that we are detecting are from the black
box on MH370,” he told reporters in
Shanghai, referring to the plane’s flight data
and cockpit recorders.
Search crews are racing against time because
the batteries powering the recorders’ locator
beacons last only about a month — and more
than a month has passed since the plane disap-
peared. Finding the devices after the batteries
fail will be extremely difficult because the
water in the area is 4,500 meters (15,000 feet)
deep.
“We’re getting into the stage where the sig-
nal from what we are very confident is the
black box is starting to fade,” he added. “We
are hoping to get as much information as we
can before the signal finally expires.”
The Australian ship Ocean Shield is towing a
U.S. Navy device that detects signals from the
flight recorders. Two sounds heard Saturday
were determined to be consistent with the sig-
nals emitted from the black boxes. Two more
sounds were detected in the same general area
Tuesday.
“We are confident that we know the position
of the black box flight recorder to within some
kilometers,” Abbott said. “But confidence in
the approximate position of the black box is
not the same as recovering wreckage from
almost 4 1/2 kilometers beneath the sea or
finally determining all that happened on that
flight.”
Abbott told the Chinese leader that the next
steps will be a “very long, slow and painstak-
ing process.”
An Australian air force P-3 Orion, which has
been dropping sonar buoys into the water near
where the Ocean Shield picked up the sounds,
detected another possible signal Thursday, but
Angus Houston, who is coordinating the
search, said in a statement that an initial
assessment had determined it was not related to
an aircraft black box.
The Ocean Shield towed its ping locator to
try to find additional signals Friday, and the
Orions were continuing their hunt, Houston
said. The underwater search zone is currently a
1,300-square-kilometer (500-square-mile)
patch of the seabed, about the size of the city
of Los Angeles.
“It is vital to glean as much information as
possible while the batteries on the underwater
locator beacons may still be active,” Houston
said in a statement.
The searchers want to pinpoint the exact
location of the source of the signals so they
can send down a robotic submersible to look
for wreckage. Adecision to use the sub could be
“some days away,” Houston said.
The Bluefin 21 submersible takes six times
longer to cover the same area as the ping loca-
tor being towed by the Ocean Shield — about
six weeks to two months to canvass the current
underwater zone.
Complicating matters is the depth of the
seabed in that area. The signals are emanating
from 4,500 meters (15,000 feet) below the sur-
face, which is the deepest the Bluefin can dive.
The search coordination center said it was con-
sidering options in case a deeper-diving sub is
needed.
The surface area to be searched for floating
debris had been narrowed to 46,713 square
kilometers (18,036 square miles) of ocean
extending from 2,300 kilometers (1,400
miles) northwest of Perth. Up to 15 planes and
13 ships were conducting the visual search
Friday.
In Malaysia, police observed a minute of
silence at a Buddhist temple to remember those
aboard Flight 370.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis said
Friday he took personal responsibility for
the “evil” of priests who raped and molested
children, asking forgiveness from victims
and saying the church must be even bolder in
its efforts to protect the young. It was the
first time a pope has taken personal respon-
sibility for the sex crimes
of his priests and begged
forgiveness.
Francis’ off-the-cuff
remarks were the latest
sign that he has become
sensitized to the gravity
of the abuse scandal after
coming under criticism
from victims’ advocacy
groups for a perceived
lack of attention to, and understanding of,
the toll it has taken on the church and its
members.
The evolution began last month when he
named four women and an abuse survivor to a
sex abuse advisory panel that the Vatican has
suggested will address the critical issue of
sanctioning bishops who cover up for
pedophiles.
Francis delivered the comments to mem-
bers of the International Catholic Child
Bureau, a French Catholic network of organ-
izations that protects children’s rights.
Sitting with them in his library Friday,
Francis spoke slowly, deliberately and soft-
ly in his native Spanish, deviating from his
text.
“I feel compelled to take personal respon-
sibility for all the evil that some priests,
many — many in number, (although) not in
comparison with the totality — to assume
personal responsibility and to ask forgive-
ness for the damage caused by the sexual
abuse of the children,” he said.
“The church is aware of this damage,” he
continued. “We don’t want to take a step
back in dealing with this problem and the
sanctions that must be imposed. On the con-
trary, I think we must be even stronger! You
don’t play around with the lives of children.”
No pope has ever taken personal responsi-
bility for the tens of thousands of children
who were molested by priests over decades
as bishops moved them from parish to
parish rather than reporting them to police.
Pope John Paul II denounced priests who
abused children, saying there was no place
for them in the priesthood. Pope Benedict
XVI expressed sorrow and regret to victims,
met with them and even wept with them. But
neither ever took personal responsibility
for the crimes or begged forgiveness as
Francis did.
Last month, Francis named the initial
members of a commission to advise him on
best practices to combat sexual abuse in the
church. Half of the eight members are
women and one, Marie Collins, was assault-
ed by a priest as a child. Collins, who
became a well-known activist in the fight for
victims’ justice, had previously called on
Benedict to ask personal forgiveness for the
scandal and those church leaders who put
loyalty to the church ahead of the safety of
children.
The Vatican has said Collins and the other
members will now draft the statutes of the
commission and would look into the legal
“duties and responsibilities” of church per-
sonnel, a suggestion that they might take up
the critical question of disciplining com-
plicit bishops. Church law provides for
sanctions if a bishop is negligent in carry-
ing out his duties, but to date no bishop has
been disciplined for protecting an abuser.
Though unclear, Francis’ comments about
the “sanctions that must be imposed” could
be a reference to the need to hold bishops
accountable.
