Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Angela Swartz
With a slew of complaints in the last
couple of weeks from neighbors angry
about noise and parking issues associ-
ated with the new Tai Wu restaurant, the
city has moved to allow expanded pref-
erential parking permits to members
of the Hemlock and Bayside Manor
But some are wondering how the dim
sum restaurant was allowed to open
without sufficient parking in the first
“Why did the city give permits to
build a restaurant, without looking
into problems asso-
ciated with putting
in a restaurant?”
said resident Lelah
Van Dyke. “I hope
the city is going to
be more careful with
putting in business-
es without consider-
ing the parking.
This shouldn’t have
been built without having the park-
The 467,900-square-foot Chinese
restaurant recently opened at 300 El
Camino Real and was supposed to have
111 parking spots available to cus-
tomers. The city was unable to confirm
how many actual parking spaces the
restaurant has available. The City
Council voted Tuesday night to expand
the parking permit zone to the
Hemlock and Bayside Manor neigh-
borhoods to address this issue.
No one from city staff goes out and
counts the parking spots, said Mayor
Wayne Lee. Valet parking was also not
established immediately after the
restaurant opened because of an insur-
ance issue, he said.
“Everyone else knew they had to
park elsewhere,” he said. “The city has

Grimm to face
federal charges
Lawmaker previously under investigation
for possible campaign finance violations
By Jake Pearson
NEW YORK — Republican U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm,
who has been dogged by allegations of campaign viola-
tions since his first campaign for Congress in 2009 and
2010, is facing criminal charges from federal prosecutors,
his lawyer said Friday.
A House Ethics Committee announced in November that
Grimm was under investigation for possible campaign
finance violations but said it would defer its inquiry because
of a separate Department of Justice investigation.

A “deep commitment to art” in the local
community is the reason Ruth Waters, founder
and executive director of the Peninsula
Museum of Art in Burlingame, is what landed
her as the woman of year for the 13th Senate
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, pre-
sented the award to Waters. Hill named Waters
Woman of the Year because he said she has
been such a force in the community, tireless-
ly advocating on behalf of art and artists.
“She is dedicated to making art accessible
to everyone,” Hill said in a statement. “Ruth
Waters has demonstrated unparalleled leader-
ship by serving as a guiding light to the
Peninsula Museum of Art, the 1870 Art Center
in Belmont and the Peninsula Chapter of the
Women’s Caucus for Art.”
Waters graduated from Stanford University
with a degree in journalism and went on to
work at Sunset Magazine, while sculpting at
the same time. She has also been painting for
the last 10 years. In 1977, she opened work-
ing art studios in Belmont. Originally, she
wanted to name it the “Cuckoo’s Nest” since
it was a former psych ward.
“The city didn’t think it was funny,” she
Then, in 1985, she moved the studio to a
former school site when the city wanted to use
her original site for a senior and community
center. The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake is
what helped move the need for cultural ameni-
ties to the Peninsula from San Francisco. The
Peninsula was also no longer a collection of
bedroom communities with the expansion of
high-tech and biotech along the Peninsula,
she said.
“The earthquake disrupted people’s patterns
of going to San Francisco for their art fix,”
said Waters, who has three children and three
grandchildren. “Children needed exposure to
the arts, it’s part of brain development and
helps with reading and math.”
About a year ago, her museum in
Burlingame opened after about $800,000
worth of renovations were done. This only
was able to happen after a man named Charles
Homer donated $1 million to launch a build-
ing fund. The museum now hosts 28 artists
that include artists from China, Germany,
Iran, England and the Netherlands.
“It’s so good for people in general to see
real art being made by real artists,” she said.
“What’s different about this place is it’s not a
result of a wealthy collector with lots of
money trying to build a museum out of his
taste. … Kids will run out and say ‘mommy,
mommy, I just saw a real artist!’ The power of
real artwork is so much greater than a picture
in a magazine.”
Instead, there are hat makers, sculptors,
painters of various styles, photographers and
others. Waters tries to keep the studios filled
with an eclectic mix of artists. The fact the
museum has working studios for sculptors is
rare, she said. The museum also offers art
courses and workshops to the community.
The most important thing to Waters is cre-
ating a cultural resource.
“My favorite part of the job is creating
something that I think is very important,”
she said. “I see things in 3-D, so it wasn’t
hard for me to visualize the building.”
New exhibits will be coming to the muse-
um, located at 1777 California Drive in
Burlingame, May 18. For more information

lion allocated by San Mateo County, is
in its early planing phases and will
include undergrounding utility lines
and changing the road, lighting, park-
ing and street amenities between Fifth

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown
issued a second executive order on
Friday to deal with California’s
drought, taking additional steps to
help fight wildfires and assist cities
and farmers.
“The driest months are still to come
in California and extreme drought con-
ditions will get worse,” Brown said.
He said the order “cuts red tape to
help get water to farmers more quickly,
ensure communities have safe drinking
water, protect vulnerable species and
prepare for an extreme fire season.”
The order streamlines contracting
rules for purchasing firefighting equip-
ment and allows property owners to
quickly clear brush and dying trees
from their land.
It also directs state water regulators
to accelerate approvals of voluntary
water transfers to assist farmers and
orders wildlife officials to take steps to
help winter-run Chinook salmon and
other fish survive the drought.

Juveniles with fake gun
arrested after undercover sting
Two juveniles were taken into custody
Thursday night after South San Francisco
police officers said they used a replica firearm
to try to rob an undercover officer.
The names of the juveniles are being with-
held because of their ages. There was no infor-
mation immediately available on the exact
charges the suspects face.
Police said there were two separate armed
robbery incidents in recent weeks involving
women using Centennial Trail near Orange
Memorial Park. In each case, the women were
using the trail alone.
The suspects brandished a gun in each inci-
dent and one of the victims was pistol-
whipped during the robbery.
Due to the similarities of the two rob-
beries, an undercover female officer was
involved in a sting operation on the trail
Thursday night, leading to the arrest of the
juveniles armed with the replica firearm at
about 9:15 p.m. No one was injured during
the operation, police said.
The suspects were taken into custody and to
juvenile hall.
Anyone with information that might assist
in the successful prosecution of the suspects
is encouraged to contact the South San
Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-

Renesting of great
horned owlets deemed successful
Last Friday’s effort to renest three great
horned owl nestlings was successful, the
Peninsula Humane Society reported this
Volunteers stayed in the park near the site
of the nest for four hours the same day the
owlets were renested; they played a recording
of owlets’ cries on a loudspeaker. Volunteers
saw the parents flying in an out of the tree
throughout the night. They didn’t see the par-
ents in the nest, but remained confident it
would simply be a matter of time, according
to PHS officials.
The following day, volunteers confirmed
that the parents were actively engaged in car-
ing for the newly renested owlets. In addi-
tion, park rangers kept watch for the parents
at the nest site over the Easter weekend,
according to the PHS.
Great horned owls start breeding early in
late January to early February, and their
owlets hatch in March/April. Great horned
owls are extremely dedicated parents, and usu-
ally continue to feed the babies until well
after they can fly, sometimes up to five
months after they are hatched. Most great
horned owlets are not truly independent from
their parents until they are ready to start
breeding — usually in December, according
to the PHS.
The owlets came into PHS’s care on
Saturday, April 19, when they were found
grounded by a park ranger, near the base of a
eucalyptus tree in one of our popular county
parks. The owlets were not harmed, according
to the PHS.

The fate of a San Francisco woman
repeatedly arrested for either sneaking
through security or simply visiting the air-
port in violation of a court prohibition
remains up in the air while she is evaluated
for entry into a mental health alternative
Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, appeared in
court Friday for consideration into
Pathways Mental Health Court but a judge
ordered an assessment before deciding
between that route and possible jail time
for several trespassing convictions. Two
hurdles for Hartman are her out-of-county
residency and if she actually has a diagnos-
able mental condition.
“That is one of the question marks we
will get answered as they
evaluate her,” said
Assistant District
Attorney Al Serrato.
Serrato said Hartman’s
defense attorney present-
ed some information
about her client’s state in
court but not enough to
include or exclude her
Defense attorney Elsie
Wanton did not return a call for comment.
Serrato said Hartman reportedly also lost
her San Francisco residence so that is
another consideration for the court.

defendants with a certain level of mental
diagnosis but Serrato conceded it is a win if
the alternative program can help Hartman.
“It is an unusual case so it is probably the
kind of case that Pathways would be great
for,” he said. “There’s a lot going on here
without the criminal intent we see when
someone typically fixates on one place.”
As Hartman continued racking up new
cases since her original arrest in February,
prosecutors wrestled with the best course of
action. Hartman has told authorities she
has cancer and does not feel safe in her San
Francisco residence which is why she con-
tinually heads to San Francisco
International Airport. Authorities believe
she had cancer several years ago but not
Hartman has also been detained for tres-
passing at Oakland International Airport,
Serrato said.
Hartman’s run-in with the San Mateo
County law began in February when she
was arrested following three attempts with-
in five days to board Hawaii-bound flights
without a ticket. The first time she managed
to get on board but was discovered when the
actual ticket holder arrived at the seat. The
next two times, including once when she
used a discarded boarding pass, she was
stopped at the security gate. Police finally
arrested her after the third time. In those
cases, Hartman pleaded no contest to two
misdemeanor counts of commercial burgla-
ry and received credit for time served along
with the order to stay away unless she had a
ticket in her own name.
In quick succession through March and
April, Hartman was arrested in the food
court with her probation paperwork in her
purse, in the baggage claim area and most
recently in a terminal restroom.
After pleading no contest to trespassing
again, a judge agreed to consider Pathways.
She remains in custody pending her next
court appearance May 23.
SFO trespasser considered for mental health court
By Michelle Durand
The 84-year-old man who shot at his doc-
tor inside a Daly City medical office
Wednesday said he blamed the physician for
a pain shot that made him ill, according to
prosecutors who filed premeditated attempted
murder charges Friday.
Raymond Iwase, 84, was also charged with
felony assault with a firearm for the April 23
shooting on the second floor of the office
building at 1500 Southgate Ave. At his first
court appearance, Iwase asked for a court-
appointed attorney and put off a plea until
May 1.
Iwase reportedly entered the medical center
where he had been treated and sat for a while
watching before seeking out a specific doc-
tor. After approaching the doctor and staring
at his name badge, the physician who did not
recognize Iwase asked what he needed.
“The defendant said ‘You gave me a shot in
the past and you made me sick,’” District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
The man later identified as Iwase pulled a
silver handgun and fired as the doctor ran and
quickly turned a corner.
The bullet hit the wall at
the level of the man’s
back, Wagstaffe said.
Police responding to
the 911 call at approxi-
mately 1:30 p.m., sealed
the scene but did not
immediately turn up the
shooter. He was later
arrested at his Plymouth
Circle home. Inside the house, police report-
ed finding a shotgun in the closet and .38-
caliber ammunition but not the gun fired at
the medical center.
The doctor told authorities he didn’t imme-
diately remember Iwase as a patient but a
review of his records showed that he had
been briefly treated and received a pain injec-
tion, Wagstaffe said.
After his arrest, Iwase told police, “I’m an
old man. There’s nothing you should be wor-
ried about,” Wagstaffe said.
Iwase remains in custody without bail. If
convicted, he faces a life sentence for the
attempted murder and another 15 years for
the firearm use.

State leaving online
health exchange for U.S. site
DURHAM, Ore. — After months
of trying to get its problem-plagued
online health exchange to work,
Oregon on Friday officially gave up
on the state portal and decided to
switch to the federal website — the
first state in the nation to do so.
An early adapter and early enthu-
siast of the Affordable Care Act,
Oregon was once seen as the nation-
al leader in health care reform. The
progressive state’s ambitious
vision for its exchange, its colossal
multimillion-dollar failure, and the
inability to fix the glitch-filled site
illustrate the complexity of the
health care law and the challenges
for states that decided to build their
own exchanges.
Oregon, which so far has failed to
enroll a single person in coverage
in one sitting through its exchange,
decided to ditch the exchange
because officials said fixing it would
be too costly at $78 million and
would take too long. Switching to
the federal system will cost just $4
million to $6 million and is the
least risky option.
Active duty military
suicides drop; Reserves go up
among Army National Guard and
Reserve members increased last

duty troops across the military who
took their own lives dropped by
more than 15 percent, according to
new data. The overall totals provid-
ed by the Army, Navy, Air Force and
Marine Corps give some hope that
prevention programs and increased
efforts to identify troops at risk may
be taking hold after several years of
escalating suicide rates.

SEOUL, South Korea —
President Barack Obama was tout-
ing economic and military ties to
South Korea Saturday, a show of
U.S. influence in the region amid
China’s growing power and
nuclear threats from North Korea.
Obama kicked off the second day
of his overnight trip to Seoul in a
meeting with business leaders
aimed at promoting trade between
the two nations. The remainder of
his day focused on military mat-
ters, with a speech to some of the
28,000 American service members
stationed here and a rare joint
security briefing with South
Korea’s president.
Obama told more than a dozen
corporate executives gathered in a
conference room at the Grand
Hyatt where he spent the night
that the U.S. and South Korea are
going to have “one of the key eco-
nomic relationships of the 21st
century.” The executives repre-
sented businesses including
Hyundai, Samsung, Korean Air,
Microsoft, Boeing, Goldman
Sachs and others.
“As important as the security
relationship is and the alliance is
between the Republic of Korea and
the United States, what is also
important is the incredible and
growing economic ties that are
creating jobs and opportunity in
both countries,” Obama said.
Obama arrived in South Korea
on Friday, the second stop on his
four-country swing through Asia.
After events in Seoul on Saturday,
the president will travel to
Malaysia, where he’ll attend a din-
ner with the royal family.
While in Seoul, Obama paid
tribute to victims from last week’s
ferry disaster. The vast majority of
the 300 dead or missing were stu-
dents from a single high school
near the capital city.

WASHINGTON — Diners could
soon see calorie counts on the
menus of chain restaurants.
But will they be able to get that
same clear information at grocery
stores, convenience stores,
movie theaters or airplanes?
The food industry is closely
watching the Food and Drug
Administration to see which
establishments are included in the
final menu labeling rules, which
are expected this year.
The idea is that people may pass
on that bacon double cheeseburg-
er if they know that it has 1,000
calories. Or on the chili hot dog at
the convenience store counter.
But nonrestaurant establish-
ments have lobbied hard for
exemption, and the rules have
been delayed.
FDA Commissioner Margaret
Hamburg told Congress earlier
this month that writing the rules
has been “much more challenging
than expected.” The agency issued
proposed rules in 2011 but has
faced pressure to revise them to
exclude retail outlets like grocery
and convenience stores.
The FDA has sent the rules to
the White House, meaning they
could be released soon. The calo-
rie labels may be required as soon
as six months after the final rules
are announced.

BAGHDAD — Suicide bombers killed 31
people Friday at a sports stadium hosting a
campaign rally for thousands of supporters
of a militant Shiite group before parliamen-
tary elections, authorities said — an attack
that could unleash more sectarian violence.
An al-Qaida breakaway group, the Islamic
State of Iraq and the Levant, claimed respon-
sibility for the attack at the Industrial
Stadium in eastern Baghdad, which drew
about 10,000 backers of the Iranian-backed
Asaib Ahl al-Haq group.
It said on a militant website that the
bombings were to avenge what it called the
killing of Sunnis and their forced removal
from their homes by Shiite militias.
The authenticity of the claim could not be
independently verified.
The attack was a stark reminder of the sec-
tarian violence that has plagued Iraq more
than two years after U.S. troops ended an
eight-year presence that often served as a
buffer between the nation’s Shiite majority
and its Sunni Arab minority.
Last year, the death toll in the country
climbed to its highest levels since the worst
of the sectarian bloodshed between 2006
and 2008. The U.N. says 8,868 people were
killed in 2013, and more than 1,400 people
were killed in the first two months of this
year alone.
The rally was organized to introduce the
group’s candidates for Wednesday’s vote.
More than 9,000 candidates are taking part
and will vie for 328 seats in parliament.
Parts of the Sunni-dominated Anbar
province won’t take part in the election due
the clashes there between security forces
and al-Qaida-inspired militants.
A top intelligence officer and security
officials said a senior Sunni politician in
the southern city of Basra, Abdul-Kareem
al-Dussary, was shot and killed Friday
night in what appeared to be a revenge
attack for the Baghdad bombings. The
officer and the officials spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because they were not
authorized to brief the media.
The resurgence of sectarian violence is in
part a reflection of the 3-year-old conflict in
neighboring Syria, where forces loyal to
President Bashar Assad are battling mostly
Sunni rebels whose ranks are dominated by
Islamists or militants from al-Qaida-
inspired or linked groups. Assad follows the
Alawite faith, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.
Asaib Ahl al-Haq, like Lebanon’s Shiite
Hezbollah, has sent fighters to Syria to join
Assad’s side in the civil war.

PYONGYANG, North Korea — North
Korea has detained a 24-year-old American
man for improper behavior while he was
being processed to enter the country as a
tourist, state media reported Saturday.
The official Korean Central News Agency
identified the man as Miller Matthew Todd
— possibly putting his surname first —
and said he entered the country on April 10
with a tourist visa, but tore it up and shout-
ed that he wanted to seek asylum. The brief
report said he chose the North “as a shel-
ter. ”
It said he was detained for “gross viola-
tion” of North Korea’s legal order and was
being investigated. It gave no further
In a statement issued Friday, New Jersey-
based Uri Tours said it has “been working
closely and continuously with all relevant
government and diplomatic entities to
resolve this matter in a speedy and favor-
able manner. ”
Uri Tours identified the man as Matthew
In Washington, U.S. State Department
spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters
Friday that the U.S. is aware of the report,
but she did not confirm an American was
being held. She said the department is in
touch with the Swedish Embassy which
handles consular cases for the U.S. because
Washington does not have diplomatic rela-
tions with Pyongyang.
“There is no greater priority to us than
the welfare and safety of US citizens. We
don’t have additional information to share
at this time,” Psaki said.
Alarge number of foreign tourists were in
North Korea in mid-April to see events held
for the anniversary of national founder
Kim Il Sung’s April 15 birthday. One of the
main events, the annual Pyongyang
marathon, was opened to foreign amateur
runners for the first time this year and drew
well over 100 tourists.

Official: Military
observers detained in Ukraine
SLOVYANSK, Ukraine — Pro-Russian
forces detained a team of military observers
traveling across eastern Ukraine with the
Organization for Security and Cooperation
in Europe on Friday, according to a repre-
sentative of the separatists.
The team was being held in the eastern
city of Slovyansk, said Stella Khorosheva,
a spokeswoman for the town’s self-pro-
claimed separatist mayor. She said the
group possessed “suspicious materials,” but
said they were unharmed and would be
released after further investigation.
The OSCE wrote on Twitter that they had
lost communication with the German-led
team, but that all members of the OSCE
monitoring team were safe.
Germany’s Defense Ministry said it had
lost contact with the team, which it said was
made up of 13 people — five Ukrainians,
three German soldiers, a German translator
and one soldier each from the Czech
Republic, Poland, Sweden and Denmark.
Contact broke off around lunchtime and,
as of Friday evening, “we are still not in
contact,” a German Defense Ministry
spokesman said on condition of anonymity
in line with department rules. However, he
said the ministry couldn’t confirm reports
from Ukraine that they were being held by
Israeli push for visa-free
travel to U.S. faces test
WASHINGTON — A campaign to allow
Israelis to enter the United States without a

still running into a brick wall with the
Obama administration over the U.S. gov-
ernment’s most elementary demand: that the
Jewish state provide the same treatment at
its borders to all Americans, even if they are
Arab or Muslim.
Objections from U.S. officials and some
lawmakers blocked a congressional effort
over the last year that could have allowed
Israel to maintain discriminatory entry
policies for certain groups of Americans,
which no other country can do if its citizens
are able to visit the U.S. without visas.
However, a new version of proposed legis-

Higher education solutions
The recent Supreme Court decision,
Schuette v. Committee to Defend
Affirmative Action by a six to two
majority, allows states to eliminate
racial preferences in allotting spots
in college admissions. This forces all
our young folks trying to gain entry
into college to have to fight and scrap
their way for yet fewer spots at higher
costs. Naturally, with the fixation on
using grade points to pretend that the
most qualified gain entry, those from
less stable families and less sterling
grade averages can be dismissed as
less worthy, and leave the public with
a clear conscience thinking they have
been fair. The resulting disparity in
ethnic mixes gaining entry causes
resentment all around.
Aside from getting our Republican-
controlled Congress to pass more fed-
eral aid for higher education, one way
of relying less on whether someone
with a 98 percent on an exam is more
worthy than someone with an 89 per-
cent is to just select a cutoff that guar-
antees competence and puts them into
a lottery for the ever-dwindling spots.
Another idea is to demand that more
solid funding go to these institutions
of higher learning and not to chair-
warming “regents” who contribute lit-
tle to the educational outcome. At the
state level, this seems more produc-
tive than continuing to pit one group
against another.
I think the Republican record on
funding education versus, say, insist-
ing on tax breaks on the state level,
and on the national level when they
insist on full funding for Pentagon
boondoggles at the cost of every-
thing else, won’t bode well for those
hoping to see some sort of “bounce”
in the dismal popularity of
Republicans generally.

Vladimir Putin is amassing
troops along the border of
eastern Ukraine after his move on
Crimea, just over the border in the
former Soviet republic sits one thing
Putin most decidedly does NOT want
— the leaking hulk of Chernobyl
nuclear reactor No. 4.
Twenty-eight years ago today, that
reactor blew just 3 percent of its
radioactive material into the atmos-
phere and launched the world’s worst
technological catastrophe. On April
26, 1986, this Soviet-made disaster
spewed a plume of radioactivity 200
times that released at Hiroshima and
Nagasaki into the skies over Europe,
claimed uncounted lives, seeded an
epidemic of cancers and left huge
swaths of land a Dead Zone to this
The world only discovered the hor-
rific accident when detectors in
Scandinavia registered potent levels
of radiation. Astudy of wind patterns
traced the origin to Chernobyl, but
the Soviet Union and its new presi-
dent, Mikhail Gorbachev, denied the
reports and sent its children in
Ukraine and Belarus to march in May
Day parades under that nuclear rain.
Iodine tablets that would have saved
young lives were withheld until five
days later when the tragedy could no
longer be denied. Too late, much too
Not a few
have placed
Chernobyl as the
first of a line of
falling dominos
that led to the dis-
solution of the
Soviet Union four-
plus years later. It
appears that Putin wants to recreate
the U.S.S.R. or at least the power that
it flexed. But with that power would
come responsibilities, not the least
of which would be dealing with the
remaining 97 percent of the radioac-
tive material that continues to smol-
der 28 years later in the festering ruin
of Chernobyl reactor No. 4.
Shortly after the accident, a con-
tainment structure or “sarcophagus”
was hastily assembled over the still-
burning reactor but, over time, this
temporary structure began to leak. In
1997, the realization that the reactor
still posed a serious environmental
threat to the rest of the world led the
G7 group of nations and the European
Union to lay out a plan for building a
permanent containment structure.
Moving at the usual glacial pace
when governments must agree, work
finally began in 2010 with a budget of
$2.1 billion. Seventeen countries
(including the United States and
Russia) pledged sufficient funds to
launch the project. However, now it’s
increasingly clear to the European
Bank for Reconstruction and
Development, which is overseeing
the effort, that the new sarcophagus
cannot be finished by the end of
2015, as planned, and far more money
will be needed if it’s ever to be com-
Now toss into the mix the height-
ened border tension between Russia
and eastern Ukraine, Kiev’s dwindling
resources and Moscow’s decision to
withhold its pledge to the sarcopha-
gus project.
It’s impossible to predict whether
Putin will move to annex eastern
Ukraine, as he did to the Crimean
Peninsula, but responsibility for the
toxic stew the Soviets left simmering
just 50 kilometers across Russia’s
western border must play a part in his
Of course, all this presumes that
Russia’s president cares enough to
protect his people — this time.
Michelle Carter is the former managing
editor of The San Mateo Times. The
author of Children of Chernobyl:

(Augsburg, 1993), she has traveled
extensively in the Chernobyl region.
For the year 1995, she served as jour-
nalist-in-residence for the United
States Information Agency in Moscow.
Chernobyl Serving those in need
cting as God’s hands in a broken world — that was
the theme of one of my pastor’s recent sermons. It
got me thinking that here in affluent San Mateo
County, it’s easy to forget that there are people who need a
helping hand — the woman who was just laid off, an elder
who cannot afford utility service, young people aged out of
the foster child system and others who are quietly all around
us. Even here, there are plenty of people who need a hand
up, some over a sustained period.
There are those who would leave all help to faceless gov-
ernment agencies. They are only too happy to leave the
least, lost and most vulnerable
to the tender mercies of a 9-5
bureaucrat. After all, if one really
cares, one can show it by having
others pay higher taxes to fund
bureaucrats, who then take weeks
of vacation, so then hurting peo-
ple aren’t well served, so they
need additional support from car-
ing people, who show it by
demanding that the state increase
taxes. Right?
In a CNN op-ed, comedian
Penn Jillette skewered the idea
that requiring others to pay for
our “caring” deserves praise. He wrote, “Helping poor and
suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government
to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering peo-
ple is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People
need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed and sheltered,
and if we’re compassionate we’ll help them, but you get no
moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think
is right.”
That’s not to say that there isn’t a role for government in
helping the most vulnerable. Government programs can
provide a much-needed basic safety net of support.
However, it doesn’t take much investigating to find that the
effectiveness of these programs usually starts, and ends,
with a floor of services. They rarely provide the personal-
ized help and long-term incentives needed to bring people
into the mainstream.
Filling these gaps are local charities and nonprofit s,
where those who are compassionate can show it through
volunteer action, servant leadership and freewill giving.
San Mateo County is blessed to have several large organi-
zations providing opportunities for citizens to actively
engage in supporting and caring for the marginalized.
For 40 years, Samaritan House has provided services to
meet needs for food, clothing, shelter, health care, worker
resources and counseling services. InnVision Shelter
Network provides a “beyond the bed” model that combines
shelter and housing with comprehensive services that
enable homeless families and individuals to return to per-
manent housing and self-sufficiency. And Silicon Valley’s
Second Harvest Food Bank is one of the largest food banks
in the nation, providing food to more than one quarter of a
million people each month.
Moreover, there are other smaller, under the radar, faith-
based charities deserving of support as well. Providing
more than 5,200 shelter bed nights per year, Home and
Hope is an interfaith network providing a safe haven to San
Mateo County’s homeless families, breaking the cycle of
homelessness, and helping families re-establish long-term
self-sufficiency. Its model depends on significant volunteer
support from more than 30 houses of worship across the
Located in East Palo Alto, New Creation Home Ministries
is a comprehensive, Christian ministry serving young
mothers and their children, located in East Palo Alto. It
offers residential services for homeless mothers and chil-
dren, weekly parenting classes, bible studies, as well as
educational, vocational, emotional and spiritual support
services. Many of those they serve were forced out of their
previous living situations due to domestic violence, addic-
tion or other issues.
Ajoint venture of the First Presbyterian and United
Methodist churches of Burlingame, the CALL Primrose
Center is a nonprofit agency serving the North County. It
operates as a drop-in site to assist with emergency direct
aid and referrals. Clients include low-income singles, fami-
lies, seniors and the homeless.
What these organizations, big and small, have in com-
mon is an ongoing need for volunteers, donations and
active support of the community. They offer opportunities
for those who claim to care to show by their actions that
they really do. Moreover, they offer opportunities for those
who are skeptical of government programs to “walk their
talk” and reach out to those in need.
While working together to help those who need it, all
sides may find that they have more in common then they
think as they act — possibly unwittingly — as God’s
hands in a broken world.

NEWYORK — The stock market fell
sharply Friday, dragged down by dis-
appointing quarterly results from
Amazon and Ford. Escalating tensions
between the U.S. and Russia over
Ukraine also weighed on the market.
Worried investors sold their risky
assets and moved into the traditional
havens: bonds, gold and stocks that
pay high dividends like utilities.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 fell
15.21 points, or 0.8 percent, to
1, 863. 40. The Dow Jones industrial
average lost 140.19 points, or 0.9
percent, to 16,361.46 and the Nasdaq
composite lost 72.78 points, or 1.8
percent, to 4,075.56.
Friday’s sell-off was enough to
push the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq
into the red for the week.
Technology stocks, which have
been volatile for the last two
months, were once again a hotbed of
Amazon, the world’s largest
online store, sank $33.32, or 10
percent , t o $303. 83. Amazon
reported late Thursday an increase in
first-quarter profit, but the company
also said that spending on invest-
ments will likely lead to an operat-
ing loss in the second quarter.
The retail giant dragged the rest of
the technology sector lower, making
it one of the worst performing sec-
tors in the S&P 500. Netflix fell more
than 6 percent, Priceline lost 5 per-
cent, Facebook fell 5 percent and
Twitter lost more than 7 percent.
Investors have had little patience
for companies missing their fore-
casts this quarter, said Scott
Clemons, chief investment strategist
at Brown Brothers Harriman.
“The market is in a precarious posi-
tion at the moment, and overreacts to
bad news far more than it did last
year,” he said, noting as an example
the 10 percent drop in Amazon’s
stock price, even though the compa-
ny meet analysts’ forecasts for the
most recent quarter.
For a second day, the escalating
tensions between Russia and Ukraine
weighed on U.S. investor sentiment.
Secretary of State John Kerry on
Thursday accused Russia of failing to
live up to its commitments to ease
the crisis in Ukraine. Kerry said
bluntly that unless Moscow takes
immediate steps to de-escalate the
situation, Washington will have no
choice but to impose additional sanc-
tions. In a separate event, Ukraine’s
deputy foreign minister said he feared
a Russian invasion was imminent.
Investments thought to be less
risky were among the few assets to
rise Friday. Bond prices rose, pushing
the yield on the 10-year Treasury note
down to 2.66 percent from 2.68 per-
cent Thursday. Gold rose $10.20, or
0.8 percent, to $1,300.80 an ounce.
“Cash on the sidelines is looking
for safety over anything else right
now,” said Mike Serio, a regional
chief investment officer with Wells
Fargo Private Bank.
Dividend-rich utility stocks also
rose. The Dow Jones utility index, a
basket of 15 utility stocks, rose 1
percent to 551.66, its highest level
since December 2007.
The U.S. might have put in place
the sanctions against Russia and its
officials to punish that country, but
the measures are starting to have an
impact the profits of some U.S. com-
panies as well.
Visa fell $10.47, or 5 percent, to
$198.93 after it warned that the U.S.
sanctions were causing Russian
banks to use other companies to
process payments. Russian President
Vladimir Putin said the country will
create its own payment processing
system. MasterCard was also hurt by
the news. Its stock fell $3.69, or 5
percent, to $70.66.
Stocks drop sharply; Amazon, tech shares drop
By Josh Boak
WASHINGTON — For three decades,
the U.S. middle class enjoyed a rare
financial advantage over the wealthy:
lower mortgage rates.
Now, even that perk is fading away.
Most ordinary homebuyers are pay-
ing the same or higher rates than the
fortunate few who can afford much
Rates for a conventional 30-year
fixed mortgage are averaging 4.48 per-
cent, according to Bankrate. For
“jumbo” mortgages — those above
$417,000 in much of the country —
the average is 4.47 percent.
This trend reflects the widening
wealth gap between the richest
Americans and everyone else. Bankers
now view jumbo borrowers as safer and
shrewder bets even though conven-
tional borrowers put less capital at
Even as the overall U.S. housing
recovery has slowed, sales of homes
above $1 million have surged in the
past year. Price gains have been so
great in some areas that middle-class
buyers are straining to afford even
modest homes. They’re also facing
tighter lending rules, larger down-pay-
ment requirements and a shortage of
houses for sale.
Used to be, rates for conventional
mortgages would be 0.2 to 0.3 of a
point below rates on jumbo mort-
gages. A decade ago, a conventional
rate averaged 5.68 percent, a jumbo
5.97 percent. The advantage for mid-
dle-class borrowers was possible in
part because government-chartered
firms guarantee that lenders will be
paid on a conventional mortgage even
if a borrower defaults. No such guaran-
tee exists for jumbos.
Two factors have caused the spread
between conventional and jumbo rates
to vanish:
• The government in 2012 began
raising the fees it charges lenders for
guaranteeing payments on conven-
tional mortgages. Lenders passed
along that increase to borrowers in the
form of higher rates. The fees are
meant to stop home buyers from once
again borrowing more than they can
afford — a trend that fueled the 2007
housing bust.
• Bankers say they’ve begun using
mortgage rates to woo high-net-worth
clients: Attractive rates on jumbos
have become a way to secure addition-
al business from those clients — from
managing their investments to sup-
plying a broad suite of financial serv-
ices. What’s more, those borrowers
tend to be clustered in neighborhoods
that lenders consider more stable.
“Jumbo borrowers represent the
holy grail of what financial institu-
tions are pursuing: that much-desired,
mass affluent consumer,” said Greg
McBride, a senior analyst at Bankrate.
In the first three months of 2014, 37
percent of the money Bank of America
lent for mortgages went to jumbos,
compared with 22 percent at the same
point last year.
The lower rates are geared for affluent
borrowers living in “sweet spots” with
strong employment and stable home
prices — areas like metro New York
City, Boston and sections of
California, said Matt Vernon, who
leads consumer mortgage lending at
Bank of America.
“We’re lending where we believe
home ownership is sustainable,”
Vernon said.
Wells Fargo offers jumbos starting
at 4.25 percent, about 0.25 point
lower than for conventional mort-
gages. This month, Wells trumpeted
the spillover benefits of increased
jumbo lending: A 14 percent year-
over-year increase in loans from its
separate “wealth, brokerage and retire-
ment” division.
“Hopefully, it’ll continue to go up,”
Wells’ CFO, Timothy Sloan, said of
prospects for continued jumbo lend-
i ng.
Fading middle-class perk:
Lower mortgage rates
BALTIMORE — Maryland’s Public
Service Commission on Thursday
ordered a company that links people
seeking rides with freelance drivers
to apply to operate as a for-hire carri-
But an official with Uber
Technologies said Friday that the
service, which has been operating in
Maryland since January 2013, is not
a transportation company and will
appeal the ruling.
Chief Public Utility Law Judge
Terry J. Romine said in the 54-page
ruling that Uber is a common carrier
subject to PSC regulation. She said
Uber has 60 days to apply for a motor
carrier permit.
Uber, which is based in San
Francisco, is one of several ride-shar-
ing companies that useWeb-based
applications to link passengers and
Romine said Uber must abide by the
PSC’s regulations governing passen-
ger-for-hire services. She wrote,
“Uber exerts control over the entire
transportation service ‘experience’ i t
provides to its Users.”
Rachel Holt, Uber East Coast
regional general manager, said Uber
is a technology company, not a
transportation company. She said the
PCS ruling is the first time any juris-
diction in the more than 100 cities in
which Uber operates has found it to
be a transportation company.
“We’re really disappointed that the
PSC chose to take that direction,”
she said Friday. She said it’s equiva-
lent to saying Orbitz, an online trav-
el booking company, is an airline.
Holt said Uber drivers have provid-
ed tens of thousands of rides in
Maryland and the company plans to
continue operating in the state.

The voice of Burlingame Panthers baseball since the 2000 season,Tyler Jamieson provides an
integral mystique at the classic confines of Washington Park.
By Terry Bernal
In terms of San Mateo County baseball,
Tyler Jamieson should be as synonymous
with the sport as hot dogs, apple pie,
Chevrolet and Bob Uecker.
Jamieson has served as Burlingame’s pub-
lic-address announcer since the turn of the cen-
tury. At the classic confines of Washington
Park — the only enclosed stadium-style venue
in the county — Jamieson’s public-address
voice is a perfect fit. And it has long been the
highlight of the best baseball P.A. show in
the county.
“He does a really good job keeping the out-
side world informed in our little world,”
Burlingame manager Shawn Scott said.
Case in point, at the outset of Burlingame’s
Wednesday matchup with Carlmont, the San
Francisco Giants were playing an extra-
inning game in Colorado. With the score tied
going into the 11th inning, Jamieson, casual-
ly keeping tabs on the game on his trusty
iPad, reacted instantaneously when the update
of Hector Sanchez’s game-winning grand slam
was posted.
With the finish of the Giants game some
minutes later, Jamieson coolly chimed in
between innings with an in-house announce-
ment of the final score. And as the many
Giants fans on hand at Washington Park cele-
brated with a round of applause, Jamieson was
already cueing up a round of Rihanna’s “Don’t
Stop the Music,” then moments later fired up
the Burlingame offense by fading into a rally
snippet of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll.”

SanJose’s Matt Nieto, a rookie, has had an impact in his first Stanley Cup playoffs, having scored twice
in the series with the Los Angeles Kings. Game 5 is Saturday in SanJose.
By Josh Dubow
SAN JOSE — The San Jose Sharks have far
too much respect for the Los Angeles Kings
and all they have accomplished the past few
years to think that knocking them out of the
playoffs would be easy.
After missing out on their first chance to
eliminate the Kings, the task for the Sharks
now is to finish the job at home in Game 5
on Saturday night and avoid getting into a
long, grueling series that could take a toll
later in the playoffs.
“We shouldn’t be comfortable,” coach
Todd McLellan said Friday. “We should feel
good about what we’ve accomplished to this
point, but we shouldn’t feel comfortable.
Last night should push us a little bit more.”
After controlling the play for much of the
first three games of the series, the Sharks
found themselves on the short end in Game 4
and lost 6-3. They let Los Angeles control
the area around both goals and committed a
few needless penalties, including one by
Raffi Torres that led to a power-play goal.
But there is no sense of panic around the
Sharks, especially with the series returning
to San Jose where they have won 12 of the
past 13 meetings against Los Angeles,
including five in the past two postseasons.
“I don’t know why we would be nervous or
be like, ’Oh boy, we need to win,”’ defense-
man Marc-Edouard Vlasic said. “We’re up 3-
1, and we can close it out at home tomorrow.

UN-Square Footage Concerns- Is a Garage Living Space?
John King has been serving home sellers and buyers on The Peninsula and Silicon Valley for almost 30 years.
Top 1% of Keller Williams agents.
When is a 3,100 square-loot home, not a 3,100 square-loot home?
When it`s 2,700 square leet plus 400 square leet ol garage! ln some

including the square lootage ol the garage. This can be very misleading
to buyers. A garage can be anywhere lrom 200 to 600 square leet or
even larger. This is not considered "living space" by the county assessor

OAKLAND — Blake Griffin buried bank
shots, turnaround jumpers and spinning
layups. DeAndre Jordan gobbled up
rebounds and opposing shots, often flexing
his muscles and letting out a roar.
The high-flying finishers who spawned
the nickname “Lob City” are doing far more
than dunking in the playoffs. The frontcourt
tandem has carried the Clippers to a 2-1 lead
in their first-round series against the Golden
State Warriors, who have found no answer
for either with center Andrew Bogut out with
a fractured right rib.
“Just two animals out there just beastin’
right now,” Clippers guard Darren Collison
And both are finally performing in places
they haven’t always flourished — on
defense, in the playoffs and at the most piv-
otal points of games.
Since losing Game 1 in Los Angeles,
Griffin has dominated David Lee and every
other defender the Warriors have thrown his
way. And Jordan — who tied a franchise
playoff record with 22 rebounds and five
blocks in the Clippers’ 98-96 win in Game 3
on Thursday night — has been the kind of
rim protector coach Doc Rivers had long
believed he could become.
The two big men, both just 25 years old,
have caused so much disruption that Warriors
coach Mark Jackson said Friday he’s consid-
ering changing his starting lineup for Game
4 on Sunday. The most likely swap would
insert Draymond Green at power forward and
push Lee to center for Jermaine O’Neal in a
smaller, quicker lineup.
“We’ve got to figure out a way to present
some resistance. I think things are going a
little too smoothly for Blake,” Jackson said
during a light shootaround at Golden State’s
downtown Oakland headquarters.
Griffin has scored 32 and 35 points the
past two games, respectively. He’s shooting
64 percent from the floor in the series and
has been at his best in the biggest spots.
The All-Star power forward made five
straight baskets — three bank shots, a mid-
range jumper and a short turnaround —
against Lee to open the third quarter in Game
3, part of a run that put the Clippers ahead by
18 points.
“Just continuing to believe,” Griffin said,
speaking to reporters at the team’s down-
town San Francisco hotel Friday. “My team-
mates give me the confidence to go out there
and shoot every time I’m open.”
Lee promised he’d be better against Griffin
in Game 4. He has mostly been tasked with
guarding Griffin by himself, though Jackson
hinted more double-teams might be on the
“He’s playing at a high level right now, ”
Jackson said. “We forced him to be a jump
shooter, and he’s making jump shots. On the
block, he’s aggressive. He’s having an out-
standing series capping off an outstanding
year. ”
While Griffin’s star has shined brightest,
Jordan has been the insult-to-injury figure.
The Warriors tried to lure Jordan away from
Los Angeles in the summer of 2011, signing
him to a four-year, $43 million offer sheet as
a restricted free agent. Instead, the Clippers
matched the deal.
Now the Warriors — who waived Jeremy
Lin and amnestied Charlie Bell to make
room for the offer — can only watch Jordan
make a major difference on defense while
Bogut — acquired in a trade with Milwaukee
in March 2012 to be Golden State’s fran-
chise center — sits out with another injury.
Three years ago, though, Jordan’s game
was not nearly what it is now.
Jordan fell out of favor at times under for-
mer coach Vinny Del Negro, who was let go
after the Clippers lost to the Memphis
Grizzlies in the first round of last year’s
playoffs. Jordan’s rising game speaks to the
Clippers’ commitment on defense under
Rivers, who challenged the young center to
focus on rebounding and protecting the rim
this season.
Jordan finished third in voting for the
NBA’s defensive player of the year award
behind winner Joakim Noah of Chicago and
runner-up Roy Hibbert of Indiana.
“These guys really rely on me a lot defen-
sively, and when I’m out there, they have all
the confidence in the world in me,” Jordan
said. “So it’s definitely a huge step for me in
my career, but at the same time, it’s always
something to build on and it’s more motiva-
tion for me. As long as I’m my team’s defen-
sive MVP, that’s all that matters to me.”

HOUSTON — Daric Barton and Josh
Donaldson had two RBIs apiece in a seven-
run ninth inning to help the Oakland
Athletics to a 12-5 win over the Houston
Astros on Friday night.
The game was tied at 5
when Josh Fields (0-2)
plunked Brandon Moss
before back-to-back sin-
gles by Alberto Callaspo
and Craig Gentry loaded
the bases.
Barton’s sharply hit
grounder bounced off
Jose Altuve’s glove and
into right field to send two home. Rookie
George Springer’s error on that play
allowed a third run to score, sending the few
fans left filing to the exits.
Donaldson, who homered twice on
Thursday night, connected again on Friday
with a shot off Anthony Bass to the
Crawford Boxes in left field to make it 12-5.
Jed Lowrie had two hits and two RBIs to
help the A’s improve to 5-0 against
Houston this season and 25-5 against the
Astros all-time.
Altuve had three hits and drove in a run for
Houston, which has lost 10 of its last 12
games and allowed 22 runs in the first two
games of this four-game series.
Chris Carter hit a leadoff double in the
eighth inning, but Luke Gregerson (1-1)
retired the next three Astros to end the
Former Astro Fernando Abad hit Jason
Castro on the backside with a pitch with one
out in the ninth inning. Castro jawed with
catcher Derek Norris before heading to first
base. Houston manager Bo Porter darted out
of the dugout and began yelling at plate
umpire Jordan Baker and was ejected.
Castro’s plunking came after Lowrie
accused Houston of intentionally hitting
him with a pitch Thursday night for an inci-
dent in the last series between these teams
when the Astros were miffed after he
attempted a bunt with a seven-run lead in the
first inning.
The A’s put up four runs in the second
inning and extended the lead to 5-1 in the
fourth. Houston answered with four runs in
the bottom of the inning to tie it up.
Jesse Chavez had his first tough outing of
the season, allowing a career-high eight
hits with five runs — four earned — in five
innings. He entered having allowed just one
earned run in each of his four starts and had
a 1.38 ERA.
Houston starter Brad Peacock yielded five
hits and five runs, including three earned,
with a career-most six walks in five innings.
NOTES: A’s left fielder Yoenis Cespedes
sat out Friday after straining his left ham-
string a night before. Manager Bob Melvin
said he expects him to be out a couple of
days. ... Houston right-handed reliever
Jesse Crain, who has been on the disabled
list all season after biceps surgery during
spring training has been shut down after
developing bursitis in his shoulder. General
manager Jeff Luhnow said the current prob-
lem is not related to his surgery. He was
scheduled to return in early May, but
Luhnow said he will not be ready then and he
should have a updated timetable for his
return in about 10 days. ... RHP Mark
Appel, the first overall pick by the Astros in
2013, has been sent to extended spring
training after starting the season at Single-
A Lancaster. Luhnow said he is not injured
but was behind after missing most of spring
training after an emergency appendectomy
and needed more games to get “more used to
the pro routine.”

Sperbeck resigns as
Sac State football coach
SACRAMENTO — Sacramento State foot-
ball coach Marshall Sperbeck announced his
resignation Friday after seven seasons.
Astatement from the school did not give a
reason for the resignation.
Sperbeck’s teams posted a 35-44 record,
including wins over Oregon State and
Athletic director Terry Wanless says defen-
sive coordinator Jody Sears, who joined the
team this spring, has been named interim
coach for the 2014 season. Sears was head
coach at fellow Big Sky Conference school
Weber State for the past two seasons and has
been a defensive coordinator at Washington
State and Eastern Washington.
Sperbeck came to Sacramento State after 15
seasons at Foothill College in Los Altos
where his teams compiled a 109-53 record and
advanced to 11 junior college bowl games.
Wanless says the Sacramento State program
made definite strides under Sperbeck.
Former NFL quarterback
Earl Morrall dies at 79
MIAMI — Earl Morrall, an NFL quarter-
back for 21 years who started nine games
during the Miami Dolphins’ perfect season
in 1972, has died at age 79.
The Dolphins confirmed Morrall’s death
Friday. Former teammate Charlie Babb said
Morrall had been in failing health for some
When Bob Griese broke his ankle in
1972, Morrall came off the bench and start-
ed the final nine games of the regular season
for the Dolphins. Morrall won praise from
coach Don Shula for his willingness to step
aside when Griese returned for the AFC
championship game.
Griese also started in the Super Bowl to
help Miami finish 17-0. That remains the
only perfect season in NFL history. Morrall
also played for the 49ers, Steelers, Lions,
Giants and Colts.

SAN FRANCISCO — Michael Morse
homered to back another stellar outing by
Tim Hudson, and the San Francisco Giants
beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Friday
Hunter Pence had two hits and two RBIs
while Brandon Crawford also knocked in a
run to help the Giants win in their first inter-
league game of the season
after going just 6-14
against the American
League in 2013.
Hudson (3-1) scattered
four hits over seven
innings and struck out
five. He walked two, end-
ing an impressive streak
of 30 consecutive
innings without one.
Michael Bourn tripled and scored
Cleveland’s only run. Jason Kipnis and Nick
Swisher added two hits apiece for the
Indians, who lost for just the second time in
six games.
The Giants jumped on Cleveland starter
Carlos Carrasco for two runs in the first
inning, then rode the pitching of Hudson
and two relievers to the win in their first
game against a team outside of the NL West
this season.
Hudson had not issued a walk in his first
four starts this season before giving up a free
pass to Carlos Santana with two outs in the
first. It was the longest walk-less streak to
start a season by a pitcher in the majors
since Tiny Bonham’s 33-inning stretch for
the New York Yankees in 1944.
Hudson also walked Santana in the sixth.
Beyond that, San Francisco’s crafty right-
hander was solid in his first start against the
Indians since May 30, 2004. He pitched out
of two-out, two-on jam in the first and retired
nine straight after giving up an RBI single
to Nick Swisher in the third.
Jeremy Affeldt pitched a scoreless eighth
and Javier Lopez worked the ninth to com-
plete the five-hitter.
Morse, who homered twice in Wednesday’s
extra-inning win over Colorado, made it
hold up with a sacrifice fly in the first and a
leadoff home run in the fourth, a booming
shot to center on an 0-2 pitch from Carrasco.
Pence added an RBI triple in the first and an
RBI single in the third. Both times he drove
in Angel Pagan.
Carlos Carrasco (0-3) allowed four runs
over six innings. The right-hander, winless
over his past 17 starts dating to 2011, struck
out six and walked one.
He didn’t get much support, either.
The Indians had two runners on in the first,
sixth and eighth but failed to score each
time. The bottom six spots in Cleveland’s
lineup went 0-for-21.
Pagan had two hits in his return to the
Giants lineup after being limited to a pinch-
hitting role on Wednesday. San Francisco’s
leadoff hitter underwent an MRI on Thursday
and was diagnosed with what manager Bruce
Bochy called a “chronic small tear” of the
patella tendon in his right knee.
The Giants made it 5-1 when slumping
Pablo Sandoval tripled in the seventh and
scored on Brandon Crawford’s single.
Sandoval, who went into the game batting
just .165, was dropped to sixth in the
Giants’ order and went 1-for-3.
NOTES: Bochy said he plans to keep
Morse in the No. 5 spot as protection for
cleanup hitter Buster Posey. Morse leads the
Giants with 17 RBIs. ... RHP Tim Lincecum
(1-1), who pitches for San Francisco on
Saturday, has struck out 24 hitters in 21
innings. ... RHP Zach McAllister (3-0) goes
for the Indians and has not allowed a home
run in 31 consecutive innings dating to

SANTACLARA— San Francisco 49ers gener-
al manager Trent Baalke is committed to sup-
porting linebacker Aldon Smith like a family
member in the wake of his latest legal trouble —
and keeping Smith around for the long haul,
“You continue to work as you would with any
family member, you continue to work until they
leave you no choice,” Baalke said Friday in his
annual sitdown with media leading up to the
draft. “Does character matter? It does.”
Baalke repeatedly referenced the word “disap-
pointed” during his 59-minute session when
discussing a recent list of off-the-field problems
for his 49ers, who lost in the NFC champi-
onship game to eventual Super Bowl winner
Regarding a May 3 deadline whether to exer-
cise Smith’s 2015 contract option, Baalke gave
all indications he hopes to have the menacing
pass rusher in a Niners uniform well into the
Baalke said for 2015, “and ’16, and ’17 and
Smith was arrested April 13 at Los Angeles
International Airport. Police say the 24-year-
old NFLstar was randomly selected for a second-
ary screening and became uncooperative with
the process, telling a TSA agent that he had a
bomb. The district attorney has referred the case
for misdemeanor consideration.
Baalke said Smith is “growing, starting to
understand, starting to realize the importance of
his own accountability.”
When it comes to how to best deal with Smith
going forward, Baalke said that’s going to be a
“That’s still being discussed internally,”
Baalke said. “Everything factors in, you take a

“How fabulous is that?” said Oling. “Two
coaches at Aragon (being honored)?”
The California Coaches’ Association has
been honoring California coaches for 57
years. Daskarolis, Oling and 17 other
coaches will honored during a ceremony and
dinner in Sacramento June 4.
Daskarolis has served as the Dons’ track
coach for the last 50 years. Aformer teacher
and athletic director at Aragon, Daskarolis
retired from teaching in 1997, but has con-
tinued to coach both the cross country and
track teams. He was enshrined in the initial
Aragon Hall of Fame in 2008 and is a local
coaching legend.
“To have your peers honor you for some-
thing you really enjoy doing, it’s pretty
neat,” Daskarolis said. “I’m not real crazy
about these things. There may be more
deserving (people), but they’re no longer in
the ball park (have passed away).”
To qualify for the award, a coach must still
be actively coaching and have put in a min-
imum of 30 years. Daskarolis meets both
“I taught [at Aragon] for 34, was AD for
24,” said Daskarolis, who will turn 76 next
month. “It’s been a lot of fun. The key was
working in the (athletic) department, which
was so wonderful to be around. It turned out
to be great. It was just fun.”
Oling started coaching at Aragon in the
late 1990s — as far as he can remember. He
readily admits he’s not a big fan of numbers
and statistics. But the honor of being the
Golf Coach of the Year was not lost on him.
“I’m very humbled by this. Humbled and
appreciative of this award,” Oling said. “I
understand the magnitude of the award.
“It’s awesome. I’ve enjoyed coaching
golf all these years. I’ve been fortunate to
coach numerous sports and I think I’ve
found a good niche.”
Oling also has a long relationship with
Daskarolis. As a runner at Hillsdale, Oling
competed against Daskarolis’ Aragon teams
and was also hired at Aragon by Daskarolis.
Sell succeeded Daskarolis as Aragon’s ath-
letic director and has been a colleague of
both him and Oling for nearly 20 years. As
the school’s third-ever football coach, Sell
understands the mentality that keeps both
men involved with the school and high
school athletics.
“Coaching gets in your blood. It’s not
just what we do, it’s who we are. I just
don’t know how you walk away from it. As
you get older, I think you start to appre-
ciate the kids more,” Sell said. “It’s in our
DNA. To not do it, I think we would all
feel rudderless.”
Daskarolis and Oling become just the
17th and 18th coaches from the Peninsula
to be recognized by the CCA, and the third
from Aragon. Former boys’ basketball
coach Kari Huxford was named Rookie
Coach of the Year in 2003. Other area coach-
es who have been honored are: Bob Brian
(1988, South City, Baseball Coach of the
Year), Don Dooley (1990, San Mateo, track
and field), Roberta Alpers (1991,
Burlingame, girls’ tennis), Glenn Kovas
(1992, Carlmont, boys’ water polo), Mike
Ciardella (1994, Sacred Heart Prep, girls’
basketball), Keith Strange (1995, Serra,
boys’ swimming), Jim Liggett (1996,
Carlmont, softball), Ed Parker (1996,
Mills, girls’ golf), Naomi Patridge (1997,
Half Moon Bay, softball), Bill Shine (2000
and 2008, Menlo School, girls’ and boys’
tennis), Pam Wimberly (2001, Menlo-
Atherton, girls’ basketball), Ann Stlutka
(2002, South City, girls’ volleyball) and
Joe Hession (2007, Serra, boys’ golf).
Daskarolis joins Terry Stogner as the
only other Peninsula coach to be honored
with the Dan Fukushima Lifetime Achieve
Award. Stogner, the former longtime
Carlmont boys’ basketball coach and ath-
letic director and now the Peninsula
Athletic League commissioner, was hon-
ored in 2011 .
“I’ll be 76 next month. When I see that on
a piece of paper I say, ‘Am I that old?,”
Daskarolis said. “But when you’re dealing
with young kids all the time, it keeps you
feeling young.”

So we’re in a great situation and guys will be
ready to play tomorrow. ”
The home team has won 19 of the past 21
games between these two heated rivals
although the Sharks did mange to break
through in Game 3 when Patrick Marleau’s
overtime goal gave them a 4-3 victory.
But the Kings responded Thursday night
with help from a better performance from
goalie Jonathan Quick, who allowed 16
goals in the first three games, and some
juggled lines.
“They played a good game,” McLellan
said. “You have to give them credit and tip
your hat to them. They were better than we
were in areas, and we have get back to being
the better team if we want to be successful.”
Captain Dustin Brown moved up to the
top line with Anze Kopitar and Marian
Gaborik. Gaborik responded with two goals
and Brown got his first two points of the
series with an assist on the first goal and an
empty-net goal to cap the game.
Justin Williams dropped down to play
alongside Jarret Stoll and Dwight King and
scored twice, giving the Kings the lead for
good in the third period.
“I just think our whole level of play has
gotten better since the first two games,
but we’ve dug ourselves a big hole here to
try and get out of,” Williams said. “We’ll
see if we can.”
Now Sharks coach Todd McLellan must
decide whether to make any changes to his
lines, such as moving Joe Pavelski back
from first-line wing to third-line center like
he did for long stretches in Games 2 and 3,
or just rely on having the last change on
home ice to counter Los Angeles’ moves.
The series has been physical from the
start but things started to turn nasty late in
Game 4 with a number of post-whistle
scrums, including a fight after the final horn
between San Jose’s Brent Burns and Los
Angeles’ Robyn Regehr.
“Things were ugly there,” Los Angeles
forward Kyle Clifford said. “We’re both big
teams, physical teams, so it’s definitely
going to get a little wound up at times.”

With such a natural flow for integrating
the big leagues into his day-to-day, it
should come as no surprise that Jamieson
also works for the Giants. As an AT&T Park
usher since 2006, he mans the Marina Gate
in center field. And yes, he has marched in
both of the Giants’ World Series parades.
It is fitting Jamieson patrols the center-
field concourse for the Giants, as he got his
start on the Burlingame mic during the 2000
baseball season by essentially saying: Put
me in coach, I’m ready to play. Then a stu-
dent at Burlingame, he approached frosh-
soph manager Jesse Velez about keeping
score for the team.
“I think he just came up to me and said:
‘Coach, I’d like to keep score,’” Velez said.
And that’s what jumpstarted the career of
the local great, who branched out to man the
mic for both the frosh-soph and varsity
home games that season. He has since
become a definitive presence in the
Burlingame athletics ranks. He also pro-
vides the public-address voice for Panthers
football and splits time with longtime
Burlingame basketball P.A. man John
Horgan. Jamieson also works as the statis-
tician for all three teams. And his latest ven-
ture is as the P.A. voice of Burlingame’s
lacrosse team.
But with a flare and feel for the game of
baseball, Jamieson has established himself
as a unique public-address voice in the realm
of Washington Park. In a field saturated with
people merely imitating the public-address
announcers to whom they grew up admiring,
Jamieson doesn’t sound like anybody else,
according to Velez.
“If I heard him anywhere I would recog-
nize his voice,” Velez said.
Velez left Burlingame after the 2004 sea-
son to take the varsity managerial job at
Aragon, but Jamieson was just getting start-
ed with his life’s work for Panthers athletics
and has been manning the press table in the
top row behind home plate ever since.
“When [players] come there, kids know
they’re going to get their names
announced,” Scott said. “It’s kind of an
excitement thing for these kids. We also
do it at the [frosh-soph] level, so I know
the [frosh-soph] kids get excited about it
with the music between innings, the
music before games. So, he brings a pret-
ty good element.”
For years, Jamieson relied primarily on a
portable CD player to entertain players and
fans alike with an assortment of rock tunes.
In recent years though, Jamieson’s press
table has turned into something of a high-
tech bonanza.
He still keeps the CD player on standby,

of Santa Cruz county pass Measure AA, offi-
cially called the Access, Preservation and
Restoration of Open Space Lands, the
Midpeninsula Open Space District would be
able address a list of 25 environmental proj-
ects — 14 specific to San Mateo County —
it claims cannot be addressed with its cur-
rent funding.
Its current $34 million annual budget is
paid for with property assessments current-
ly $17 per $100,000 assessed value. That
budget pays for offices, property purchases,
projects and salaries.
If Measure AA passes, each residence will
pay an additional maximum $3.18 per
$100,000 assessed value. That money will
go to projects, preservation and restoration
of sites.
Opposi t i on i s comi ng from t he
Silicon Valley Taxpayers Associ at i on.
Aaron Neighbour, member of the asso-
ci at i on’s Board of Directors, said the
group’s concern is another tax increase
and the use of preserving as a main
charact eri st i c of t he Mi dpeni nsul a
Regional Open Space District.
“As an organization, we look out for the
interests of taxpayers. In this particular
measure, we oppose it because it seems to
be doing nothing,” said Neighbour. “There
are no grants on this and it’s just taxes.
General obligation bonds often lead to more
increases and just adds to the tax burden.”
People themselves should be able to help
out without the need for a new tax, he said.
“I would flag out areas that people can nat-
urally make and simply ask people to walk
on them. The trail would be made by people
who want to be there. It’s moral and free of
charge, allowing us to focus on biodiversi-
ty roles and take out all the construction on
parking lots and bathrooms,” he said.
However, the Midpeninsula Regional
Open Space District emphasizes the pub-
lic’s desire for this measure to pass. Kirk
Lenington, Natural Resources manager at
Midpeninsula Regional Open Space
District, helps oversee the numerous proj-
ects in line for the future.
“We conducted a series of public delibera-
tion meetings, which featured real key-time
voting,” said Lenington. “Twenty-two-hun-
dred conversations with community mem-
bers and farmers’ markets were examined
and results showed that the public wanted us
to expand public access and be more protec-
tive of the agriculture in these areas.
Feedback from the meetings created a vision
for our environmental future, pushing us to
be stewards of these lands.”
The 14 sites specific to San Mateo County
include restoration of populations for
endangered species and habitats like the
salmon runs at La Honda Creek and preserv-
ing of redwood trees near Purisima Creek
Redwoods. Other projects feature helping
fish and red-legged frog habitats at
Miramontes Ridge’s creek watersheds,
developing educational destinations, creat-
ing roadside parking and restrooms and
improving cattle grazing throughout multi-
ple ranch sites.
To expand public access, the district will
create and maintain trails for hiking and
horseback riding. One of those sites is East
Palo Alto’s Ravenswood Preserve near
Cooley Landing.
“We want the Bay Trail to have an exten-
sion that will connect to other trail seg-
ments. That gets people more engaged with
preservation and creates a great opportunity
for free public access in East Palo Alto. The
goal is to hopefully be able to connect with
more of Silicon Valley,” said Yuriko
Kishimoto of the Regional Open Space
Board of Directors.
The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space
District is also hoping to connect other
trails as well. This includes the Purisima-to-
Sea trail connection between the Ridge Trail
and the Coastal Trail, as well as numerous
other trails across Pescadero, Portola and
Skyline Redwoods and Big Basin State
The project length will vary, said Steve
Abbors, general manager at MidPeninsula
Regional Open Space District.
“If Measure AA is successful, we hope to
have 85 percent of each site in the first
phase done in two to three years,” Abbors
said. “There are multiple sub-elements to
each project site. That includes the main-
taining or creation of trails, water systems,
fences, or creating fuel breaks to establish a
Measure AA has already received backing
from about 250 groups like the League of
Women Voters in the Bay Area, the Sierra
Club and other environmental groups and
school board members in Redwood City.
“The Open Space District’s main goals are
to acquire, restore and access lands,”
Kishimoto said. “Our natural environment
is our largest infrastructure, so we need to be
able to take care of it.”

DONETSK, Ukraine — The United States
and other nations in the Group of Seven
agreed Friday to “move swiftly” to impose
additional economic sanctions on Russia in
response to its actions in Ukraine.
In a joint statement released Friday night
by the White House, the G-7 nations said
they will act urgently to intensify “targeted
sanctions.” The statement said the G-7 will
also continue to prepare broader sanctions on
key Russian economic sectors if Moscow
takes more aggressive action.
The White House said U.S. sanctions could
be levied as early as Monday.
The announcement came as top Ukrainians
spoke of imminent invasion and Moscow
said that pro-Russian separatists would not
lay down their arms in eastern Ukraine until
activists relinquish control over key sites in
The G-7 nations said they were moving for-
ward on the targeted sanctions now because of
the urgency of securing plans for Ukraine to
hold presidential elections next month.
The penalties are expected to target
wealthy Russian individuals who are close to
President Vladimir Putin, as well as entities
they run. However, the U.S. will continue to
hold off on targeting broad swaths of the
Russian economy, though the president has
said he is willing to take that step if Putin
launches a military incursion in eastern
Asenior Obama administration official said
each country in the G-7 would determine their
own sanctions. While the sanctions will be
coordinated, they will not necessarily be
identical, according to the official, who was
not authorized to discuss the matter publicly
and insisted on anonymity.
The White House released the G-7 state-
ment hours after Obama convened a confer-
ence call with European leaders to gauge their
commitment to additional sanctions.
Tensions were heightened on the ground,
with Russian fighter jets reported crossing
into Ukrainian airspace and a team of
unarmed foreign military observers detained
by pro-Russian forces in Slovyansk, the
heart of the separatist movement in the east.
With last week’s Geneva agreement calling
on all illegal armed groups to lay down their
weapons and hand over occupied cities and
facilities in tatters, both sides exchanged
threats and warnings Friday.
Accusing the West of plotting to control
Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey
Lavrov declared that pro-Russia insurgents in
the country’s east would only disarm and
leave the territory they have occupied if the
Ukrainian government clears out a protest
camp in Kiev’s Independence Square, known
as the Maidan, and evicts activists from other
occupied facilities.
“The West wants — and this is how it all
began — to seize control of Ukraine because
of their own political ambitions, not in the
interests of the Ukrainian people,” Lavrov
Pro-Russia insurgents will disarm and
vacate buildings “only if Kiev authorities get
down to implementing the Geneva accords,
clear out that shameful Maidan and liberate
the buildings that have been illegally
seized,” the Russian foreign minister said.
Ukraine’s reaction was swift.
“The world has not yet forgotten World War
II, but Russia is already keen on starting
World War III,” Ukraine’s acting prime minis-
ter, Arseniy Yatsenyuk told a meeting of his
At the United Nations, Ukraine’s deputy
foreign minister, Danylo Lubkivsky said he
feared an imminent Russian invasion.
“We have the information we are in dan-
ger,” Lubkivsky told reporters, saying
Russian military maneuvers involving air
and ground forces along the Ukraine border
were a “very dangerous development.”

NEW YORK — James Franco
says his recent Instagram post-
ings of him in bed — alone or not
— are his way of sharing a “very
kind of intimate portrait” of him-
self and to get people talking.
“It’s not like I’m exposing
myself or any-
thing,” he said
in an interview
Franco calls
selfies and
Instagram phe-
nomena “that I
am just playing
around with
like everybody else” to see what
kind of reaction it evokes. He says
when he takes pictures of himself,
“It’s almost like it’s connected to
you” and that by putting “that
intimate space out there it’s kind
of this new thing that we’re all
getting used to.”
He also says that it “obviously
causes a lot of stir,” noting that he
was being asked about the photos
by reporters.
The actor, author and director
wrote in a New York Times essay
last December titled “The
Meanings Of The Selfie” that he
has “become increasingly addicted
to Instagram” and acknowledged
that he has “been accused of post-
ing too many of them.”
Franco was recently caught try-

girl on the photo-sharing app. He
later apologized on the morning

The choice
is up to you
By Mari Andreatta
ast week, my family and I
made a trip to the Midwest
to look at some colleges.
While there, not only was I over-
whelmed with information about
each school’s curriculum and cam-
pus life, but I
also learned
something that
no tour guide
could tell me
(or would cer-
tainly ever
admit to, even
under direct
No school is perfect.
That sounds like simple, intu-
itive advice. But the clouds that
swirl around you and this “selec-
tion” process are thick. First of
all, what do you want to do with
your life? Second, even if you
knew that much, how can anyone
possibly figure out if an institu-
tion can help you achieve that by
strolling through manicured cam-
puses, watching well-crafted slide
shows and being led on tours by
the bubbliest-of-the-bubbly stu-
dent ambassadors who have per-
fected the art of talking while
walking backwards?
It’s also very hard to ignore the
opinions of family, friends and
the media when it comes to col-
leges. Maybe you have family
legacy, or your friend goes to a
school you’re considering or
Edward Fiske (founder and editor
of The Fiske Guide to Colleges —
a pretty good tool!) put it at the
top of his list, but that doesn’t
mean that the school everyone
speaks so highly of is the best
place for you to pursue your inter-
ests. It’s always good to make a
list of non-negotiable factors
when visiting schools — some-
thing that proved very helpful dur-
ing my visits.
I chose to focus on a small num-
ber of characteristics that the
school I will attend must have.
Some of mine include a safe cam-
pus atmosphere, internship and
study abroad opportunities, a
strong alumni network and prepa-

‘Other Woman’ has
zip and little else
By Jake Coyle
On its surface, “The Other Woman” is a very welcome thing: A
movie starring talented, funny women with their own punch lines
and everything. In the movies, this is bizarrely rare.
But what do the stars in “The Other Woman” —
Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann, along with
a side of model-turned-actress Kate
Upton — do the whole movie? Gab
about a guy.
“The Other Woman” is a slick
hell-hath-no-fury comedy of
female revenge, peppered with
cheap and unimaginative toilet
humor, but it’s elevated somewhat
by the fine comic duo of Diaz and
Its simple concept — the banding
together of a wife (Mann) and two
of her husband’s unwitting mis-
tresses — is dispiritingly sitcom-y,
and its womanly uprising is a farce
of female empowerment predicated
on the characters’ shallow lives
revolving around a man.
But it’s also light and snappy
thanks largely to the chemistry between
Mann and Diaz. As far as glossy, formu-
laic comedies with questionable gender
politics go, you could do a lot worse.
We enter the story through Diaz’s char-
acter, Carly, a high-powered, high heels-
wearing Manhattan attorney used to making
men her prey. Yet her feelings are surprisingly
strong for her latest fling, Mark King, played by
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of “Game of Thrones,” again
playing a Prince Charming on the outside, cad on the
inside. When she turns up to surprise him at his
Connecticut home dressed as a sexy plumber, she’s
aghast when his wife, Kate (Mann), answers the door.
Kate soon enough realizes what’s going on and turns up,
with her Great Dane in tow, at Carly’s office (where Nicki
Minaj makes excellent use of her few minutes as Carly’s assis-
tant). Mann’s jilted wife isn’t out to get Carly but needs a friend
outside of her circle. A reluctant Carly eventually yields to Kate’s des-
perate persistence.
They make a funny pair: one the polished, cool attorney, the other a
frazzled, ditzy emotional mess. Kate is slow on the uptake: “Does this
mean he’s not training for the marathon?” she wonders. She feels an “all-
American rage” bubbling up, and the two conspire to stealthily deliver
Mark his comeuppance. They hit it off over drinks, giving Mann a chance
to reprise her excellent, barfing drunk from “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.”
If “The Other Woman,” which was directed by Nick Cassavetes (“The
Notebook”) from a script by Melissa Stack, were wittier, their schemes
would be more creative than spiking Mark’s shampoo with nail polish
remover or his drink with something that will make him run for the bath-
room. (”Bridesmaids” was far more creative in such a scene, with Maya
Rudolph surrendering like a sad swan in a heap of wedding dress in the mid-
dle of the street.)
When Upton, as Mark’s latest conquest, joins the group, she mostly just

By Stephen Dalton
LOS ANGELES — Paying homage in style
and theme to the vintage horror movies of
the 1970s, “The Quiet Ones” is the latest
stylish shocker from Hammer, the recently
reactivated classic U.K. studio imprint.
Mixing creaky haunted-house and exorcism
tropes with a nod to the contemporary
found-footage subgenre, the film relies on
high production values and sense-battering
shock tactics to make up for wooden per-
formances and an illogical, silly script. As
an exercise in retro pastiche, it impresses.
But as a postmodern genre reinvention, it
fails to deliver.
The sophomore feature of Washington-
born screenwriter-turned-director John
Pogue, “The Quiet Ones” boasts the usual
vague claims to be “inspired by actual
events.” It draws very loosely on the
“Philips Experiment” of 1972, in which a
group of Toronto academic researchers tried
to prove that ghosts and poltergeists are
constructs of the human mind. Needless to
say, the original trials did not involve
satanic cults, paranormal love triangles or
high body counts, but reality can be disap-
pointingly mundane like that. Print the leg-
Set in 1974, the film stars “Mad Men”
veteran Jared Harris as Joseph Coupland, an
Oxford University psychology professor
with highly unorthodox methods. Coupland
hires amateur cameraman Brian McNeil
(“Hunger Games” regular Sam Claflin) to
document his controversial experiments on
Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke), a mentally
unstable young woman who appears to be
possessed by a diabolical alter ego named
Evey. The professor believes Jane is creat-
ing Evey purely through her own telekinet-
ic powers, and thus could hold the key to
curing mental illness across the globe. His
cutting-edge treatment, bizarrely, involves
locking her in a cell-like bedroom and
blasting her with loud rock music.
Driven out of Oxford by angry neighbors
and nervous university authorities,
Coupland and his team relocate to a crum-
bling country house straight out of the hor-
ror-cliche handbook. No other living souls
for miles around? Check. Broken phone
connection? Check. Spooky attic rooms?
Check. Flickering lights that malfunction
on an hourly basis? You get the picture. As
the obligatory sexual tension begins to
crackle between Brian and Jane — or is it
Evey? — shocking revelations come to
light about several key characters, and
Evey’s poltergeist-like antics turn steadily
more sinister. Abloody battle between sci-
entific reason and supernatural evil follows.
Harris clearly relishes playing Coupland
as a louche, chain-smoking, libidinous
dandy, just a degree away from hammy mad-
scientist caricature. In a vintage Hammer
production, Vincent Price or Christopher
Lee would have owned this role. The profes-
sor may be two-dimensional, but the rest of
the cast are limited to one each. Claflin’s
Brian is a pale cipher of naive goodness
while his fellow researchers Kristina (Erin
Richards) and Harry (Rory Fleck-Byrne) are
thinly written eye-candy roles. All three are
burdened with clunky dialogue and con-
trived plot exposition in place of character.
A charitable horror aficionado might
interpret all these clumsy touches as self-
referential allusions to Hammer’s notori-
ously cheap, semi-exploitation ethos. But
they still grate, and sit oddly alongside the
film’s high technical polish. Production
design is strong, capturing the washed-out
tobacco browns and bell-bottomed post-
hippie fashions of the era. Connoisseurs of
vintage British rock will enjoy a well-curat-
ed soundtrack that includes Slade, T-Rex and
Visual effects are also impressive, partic-
ularly Brian’s hand-held footage with its
authentically retro lens flare, degraded col-
ors and scratchy frames. The sound design is
striking too, a sonic collage of percussive
booms and deafening static roars that are
often more unsettling than the film’s rela-
tively mild visual shocks.
“The Quiet Ones” is not very original, nor
even especially scary, and its title ultimate-
ly proves as meaningless as its plot. All the
same, this genteel shocker earns its place in
Hammer’s campy canon of superior B-
movie schlock. Creaky and predictable, it
should serve as comfort food to the huge and
undemanding global fan base for old-school
horror, the heavy metal of movie genres.
“The Quiet Ones,” a Lionsgate release, is
rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture
Association of America for “intense
sequences of violence and terror, sexual
content, thematic material, language, and
smoking throughout.” Running time: 98
‘Quiet Ones’ is more creaky than creepy

EMERALD CITY. To Midwesterner L.
Frank Baum, sunny Coronado Island in
California was a magical place, especially
in winter. Between 1904 and 1910, the
author and his family regularly spent
January through March on Coronado, first at
the grand Hotel del Coronado and later in a
house a few blocks away. It was during these
sojourns that Baum wrote several of his Oz
books, including The Marvelous Land of
Oz, Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz and the
Emerald City of Oz. Baum’s love for
Coronado expressed itself in his 1905
poem, “Coronado: The Queen of Fairyland.”
Because of this connection with the author
and his Oz stories, Coronado is sometimes
referred to as “The Emerald City.” Fittingly,
Oz fans will gather in Coronado and San
Diego Aug. 8 through Aug. 10 for Winkie
Con 50, the longest running event celebrat-
ing Baum and his books. (The Winkies are
residents of the Winkie Country in the Land
of Oz.) The festival combines live theatre,
films, lectures and walking tours.
San Diego resident David Maxine,
Director of Winkie Con 50, said, “I went to
my first Winkie Con when I was 14 back in
the late 1970s and here I am, 30 years later,
putting on the biggest Winkie Con ever.
It’s an amazing group of people who all
love the writings of L. Frank Baum and The
Wizard of Oz. We encompass all ages from
little kids to 90-year-olds. Some folks just
like Oz and enjoy the camaraderie. Others
are serious collectors of rare first editions.
Others still are passionate researchers. But
the mix is always friendly and it’s a great
family event.”
Public Library begins festivities Aug. 1
with a reception for an exhibition show-
casing Oz book illustration and Oz graphic
novel art of Eisner Award-winning illustra-
tor Eric Shanower. The exhibition includes
selections from the 4,000-piece L. Frank
Baum and Oz collections of Winkie Con 50
Director David Maxine and books from
Wizard of Oz authority Scott Olsen.
Present Curator Emerita at the Arne Nixon
Center for Children’s Literature at Cal
State, Fresno and former International
Wizard of Oz Club President Angelica
Carpenter is the featured speaker. 640
Orange Ave. Coronado. (619) 522-7390.
Aug. 10, the Coronado Historical
Association offers Wizard of Oz Walking
Tours showing the Coronado Museum of
History and Art with its first edition Oz
books; the Coronado Public Library
Exhibition and Oz glass panels; the house
where Baum spent his winters (outside
only); and the Hotel Del Coronado. The 90-
minute tours leave daily at 11 a.m. from the
Coronado Public Library. 640 Orange Ave.

On Aug. 7, the Coronado Island Film
Festival presents a 3-D screening of the dig-
itally re-mastered 1939 film classic The
Wizard of Oz. Areception follows with spe-
cial guest Aljean Harmetz, author of The
Making of The Wizard of Oz. The Village
Theatre, 850 Orange Ave. Coronado.
LARS. Winkie Con 50 will be headquar-
tered at Town and Country Resort and
Conference Center, 500 Hotel Circle North,
San Diego, CA. The schedule includes a pro-
duction of The Tik-Tok Man of Oz, a musical
written by L. Frank Baum and first staged in
1913. Also planned are a Treasure Hunt, a
Research Table and Art Show, panel discus-
sions, and a Winkie Masquerade. Options
include a kayak tour of the La Jolla Sea
Caves, used as a setting in several Baum
books. For more information visit

important to me. Knowing the intangible
things that a prospective college must
possess makes it easier not to be distracted
by tangible things such as a Hogwarts-
looking dining hall and a state-of-the-art
student gym.
Nevertheless, impressive campus facili-
ties are important to me as well. It is very
difficult, however, to distinguish the differ-
ence between these things among univer-
sities. Every school will claim that they
have the best spirit, residence halls, meal
plans and traditions. It becomes tough to
make a choice based on things so close to
the surface ... these things will be very
similar no matter which school you
choose to attend. That is why you must dig
deeper — ask questions about the really
important stuff to you, talk to current stu-
dents, meet with professors of your area of
interest, grill alumni on how big of an
influence the school has had on them now
that they are out in the “real world.”
Listening very carefully to their answers is
the key. An example of this: I wanted to
know what weather was like and how it
impacted student life throughout the
school year. The answer I heard from a stu-
dent was “My friends and I love playing
hockey and going ice skating when we
have time in our schedules; and luckily,
every building has heating.” Translated:
“It gets really, really cold here and there-
fore we do a lot of indoor activities.”
That’s important info to consider.
The more colleges you visit, the more
differences you will begin to see. But even
more so, you will begin to see the similar-
ities — why else would it be so hard to
choose just one? Through visits and lots
of research, I learned that my goal in this
whole college-searching process is not to
find the perfect college but rather to find
the college that is perfect for me.

Lately the actor, who currently stars in
Broadway’s “Of Mine and Men,” has been
posting shirtless photos of himself in bed.
He even posted one this week showing him
in bed with one of the stars of “Pretty Little
Liars” with the caption, “BED SELFIE WITH
NUTS!!!!” Another selfie Keegan posted
showed Franco smiling and that Keegan was
wearing pants under their blanket.
Keegan has worked with Franco on three
recent films: “The Sound and the Fury, ”
‘’Bukowski” and “Palo Alto,” which Franco
was promoting in the interview and will be
released on May 9.
“Palo Alto” is a coming of age tale that
focuses on the complications, emotions
and romantic highs and lows of teens in
high school. It is based on several linked
stories Franco authored, also stars Emma
Roberts and was directed by Francis Ford
Coppola’s granddaughter Gia.
Franco, who went to high school in Palo
Alto in the 1990s, describes adolescence as
“the major moment of transition” that is
filled with “built-in drama.”

disturbing Mann and Diaz’s rhythm of phys-

But Cassavetes seemingly tries to sap any
energy that Mann and Diaz give the film.
Any time music kicks in, terrible filmmak-

wealthy interiors — Manhattan, Fairfield

NEWYORK — Sir Patrick Stewart wasn’t
about to miss the chance to appear on the
same stage with Meryl Streep, Tina Fey and
Kevin Kline.
And if that meant learning a poem or two,
he was happy to do the homework.
“It was a no-brainer,” the actor said
Thursday night after he was among a dozen
readers at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall
for the 12th annual “Poetry & the Creative
Mind,” an all-star celebration of National
Poetry Month presented by the Academy of
American Poets.
“Poetry has been an important part of my
life, particularly dramatic poetry, and when I
got wind of who else was going to be on the
platform with me I knew it was a night not
to be missed,” he said.
Empty seats were rare at the majestic,
1,000-seat venue, where Stewart, Streep and
others gave a mini-survey of modern
American verse, from the apprehension of
Mary Oliver’s “When Death Comes” to the
triumphs of Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise.”
Most simply stood up and read, but some
cracked jokes, sang or begged the audience
to silence the Greek chorus of cell phones.
Rosie Perez, who reveled in Angelou’s
brassy verse (“Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise?”), remained off
stage before her performance because of a
sudden coughing fit .
“It’s all Tina Fey’s fault,” Perez explained
as Fey, seated behind her, shook her head
and smiled. Did Fey tell her something so
funny she couldn’t breathe? No, Perez, said
after the event, she gave her a “medicated
lozenge” that didn’t quite soothe her throat.
Fey, meanwhile, had everyone laughing
with an expert run through of James Tate’s
“The List of Famous Hats,” a spoof about
the hat and head of Napoleon that might
have been composed by Fey herself:
Napoleon’s hat is an obvious choice I
guess to list as a famous hat, but that’s not
the hat I have in mind.
That was his hat for show.
I am thinking of his private bathing cap,
which in all honesty wasn’t much different
than the one any jerk might buy at a corner
drugstore now
Grammy-winning musician Esperanza
Spalding brought out her bass for a bluesy,
foot-tapping rendition of Langston
Hughes’ “Life is Fine,” while Streep read a
pair of poems, by Richard Wilbur and
Sylvia Plath, about parenthood. Kevin
Kline nodded to his fellow parents on stage
and in the audience with Billy Collin’s
comic guilt trip and ode to overachieve-
ment, “To My Favorite 17-Year-Old High
School Girl”:
Frankly, who cares if Annie Oakley was a
crack shot at 15
or if Maria Callas debuted as Tosca at 17?
We think you’re special just being you —
playing with your food and staring into
Stewart chose a personal favorite, Edna
St. Vincent Millay’s impassioned nature
poem, “God’s World.” The British actor said
he learned of the poem around the same time
he fell for autumn in the Northeast.
“Whenever I heard people talk about the
fall in New England, I used to think, ‘It’s
autumn! It’s like anywhere else! It’s just
autumn!” he said during the post-event
“One night I arrived at a friend’s cottage in
upstate New York, way out in the country.
And I got up early in the morning. Nobody
was up. I got dressed and went out,” he said.
“I walked about 50 yards down the road and
burst into tears because I had never seen any-
thing so beautiful. Nothing. And that same
weekend somebody gave me that poem to
look at.”

Hardy drives ‘Locke’
By Jocelyn Noveck
There are plenty of minimalist films out there. And then
there’s the tiny sub-genre of the truly, ultra-minimalist
films: One character. In one place.
Think “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds spent 94 min-
utes stuck in a coffin, with a waning cellphone. Or “All is
Lost,” in which Robert Redford spent 106 minutes adrift on
a stricken sailboat, with waning options.
And now there’s “Locke,” in which Tom Hardy spends 85
minutes in his car, just driving south on a British motor-
way, toward London. His life isn’t in danger — well, not in
the literal sense. And the Bluetooth is working just fine. The
only thing waning is, quite simply, his carefully construct-
ed existence. In the course of one car ride, it’s all falling
It sounds almost trite to say that a film like this lives or
dies on its central performance (other actors appear here,
but only by telephone.) Trite, but true. And luckily, Hardy
is compelling enough here to drive — forgive the pun — the
That’s not to say “Locke” will work for everyone. Hardy’s
performance as an upstanding, tightly controlled family
man trying to right a terrible mistake is admirably
restrained, in a situation when overacting must have been a
constant temptation. But it’s precisely this strength of the
film, written and directed by Steven Knight, that makes it
heavy lifting for the viewer. It demands a lot of patience —
especially when it really sinks in that this car, and Hardy’s
face, will be everything you see. And it demands a willing-
ness to absorb countless details on the fascinating subject
of concrete pouring.
Yes, concrete pouring. Did you know the difference
between C6 concrete and C5? By the end of this film, you
Ivan Locke (Hardy), you see, is a construction foreman,
and early the next morning, he’s due to supervise a huge
project — the concrete pour at the site of a new skyscraper.
This is, in fact, the largest concrete pour to happen in
Europe, outside of military or nuclear sites, as we keep
being reminded in phone calls of escalating desperation
with Locke’s boss and an underling.
Why are these calls desperate? Because on the eve of the
biggest day of his career, Locke has left it all and started
driving to London. Nine months earlier, on a business trip,
he wound up with a bottle of wine and a lonely woman. Now,
she is giving birth, all alone, and though he barely knows
her, he feels he has no choice but to join her.
“I’m going to do the right thing,” he says, in a line that
becomes a mantra.
The dialogue takes place almost entirely in phone calls,
and the most effective of these are between Locke and his
wife (an excellent Ruth Wilson), who gets the shocking
news as she’s preparing a family evening watching football
on the telly. “Hi love. I got sausages,” she tells Locke hap-
pily when he first calls.
Soon, she’s vomiting in the bathroom. Locke insists this
is the only time he’s ever transgressed in all their years
together. “The difference between never and once is the dif-
ference between good and bad,” she tells him. The dialogue
here feels raw and real.
By contrast, things get unnecessarily maudlin when
Locke starts speaking aloud to his dead father. It’s as if
Knight, who’s penned an otherwise excellent screenplay,
lost his nerve and felt compelled to add another layer of
Really, it’s enough to watch Hardy’s Locke, neatly clad in
a proper sweater and checked dress shirt, as the enormity of
his predicament sinks in. The problem is, doing the right
thing by Bethan, the woman about to give birth, means
doing the wrong thing to his family and his co-workers.
He’s always been able to figure everything out. But this
time, there may be no answer.
And that motorway exit for London is coming soon.
“Locke,” an A24 Films release, is rated R by the Motion
Picture Association of America “for language throughout.”
Running time: 85 minutes. Three stars out of four.

to find ways of making sure there’s
enough parking spaces.”
If the city doesn’t solve the parking
problem, new businesses will choose
not to come into the city, he said.
Problems with residential parking per-
mits downtown have been going on
for many years, said Vice Mayor
Robert Gottschalk.
The restaurant manager referred ques-
tions to the owner, who did not return
calls for comments.
Patrons and employees of the restau-
rant, that has a maximum occupancy of
467 people, have been parking in the
neighborhoods, according to the city.
To get included in the parking permit-
ting zone, 75 percent of segments of
the two neighborhoods with the park-
ing issues need to sign petitions to ask
the city to join, said Public Works
Director Nick Nguyen.
Noise complaints have also come
about the business’ gas lines being
loud. There was a community meeting
to address the concerns, along with a
business community meeting. The
Sheriff’s Office is doing additional
patrols in the area, while the restaurant
has changed some of its signs and
advised employees to park in the des-
ignated lots it’s providing, said Marty
Van Duyn, the former South San
Francisco assistant city manager now
consulting for Millbrae.
“Several building codes need to be
addressed,” he said. “One of the noise
issues was related to [Pacific Gas and
Electric] meters located at the rear of
the building. The rush of gas is making
a humming noise. It’s not a safety
issue, but it’s a noise issue.”
The Planning Commission expects
to see changes by its next meeting in
two weeks, he said.
“We hope we can see our way toward
some improvement,” Van Duyn said.
The city is asking the neighbor-
hoods to be patient, Lee said. He would
also like to see a more concise parking
plan for the city. Right now, the city
doesn’t have the funds for a parking
structure or other means that would
mitigate parking issues, he said.
“On behalf of the city, I want to
apologize to the neighborhoods,” Lee
said. “We want to have a thriving
economy, but we don’t want to cause
undue stress to people who live here.
… El Camino will redevelop at some
point and I would like to avoid the
whole issue.”
Meanwhile, Councilwoman Marge
Colapietro spent 45 minutes walking
around El Camino Real and the vicini-
ty of the restaurant to get a sense of the
“Everyone (staff) has been very,
very responsive to this,” Colapietro
said. “It (the walk) was a good oppor-
tunity to see some of the challenges
our community members are facing.
The unlighted crosswalk zone (nearby
the restaurant) was very, very chal-
lenging to say the least.”
Councilman Reuben Holober also
walked the streets near the restaurant
to check out the parking issue and
would like to see a task force meet to
look at the overall issues with the
“Thanks to the residents for being
loud and clear at the last council meet-
ing,” he said. “There’s definitely a very
clear problem down there. I’m very
supportive of this proposal (for more
permitted parking). My main concern
is that this is not the solution to over-
all problem we have. We’re moving
cars to another block.”
Resident Gino Gaucho agreed with
Holober. Gaucho would like to see a
public workshop.
“This is just moving the problem
around,” Gaucho said. “Why isn’t the
owner fitting the bill for these
Hemlock resident Camille Lopez
said this is obviously negligence.
“Residents are faced with these
issues,” she said. “Parking permits
will help, but it’s not the solution. It’s
not going to bring us back to the way
of life before it was disrupted. They
should fix their issues, then they can
be operational.”

Aspokesman for the U.S. attorney’s
office in Brooklyn said Friday he
couldn’t confirm, deny or comment on
the case. The FBI’s New York office,
which handles investigations, also
declined to comment.
Grimm’s attorney, William
McGinley, said in a statement he was-
n’t surprised by the impending
charges, which he didn’t disclose. But
he maintained the lawmaker had done
nothing wrong.
“After more than two years of inves-
tigation plagued by malicious leaks,
violations of grand jury secrecy, and
strong-arm tactics, the U.S. Attorney’s
Office has disclosed its intent to file
criminal charges against Congressman
Grimm,” he said in the statement.
“When the dust settles, he will be vin-
Grimm made headlines in January
after confronting on a Capitol balcony
a New York cable news station reporter
who tried to question him about a long-
running FBI investigation into cam-
paign finance.
After reporter Michael Scotto fin-
ished his report, Grimm stormed back,
leaned into him and said, “If you ever
do that to me again, I’ll throw you off
this (expletive) balcony.”
Scotto, who was asking about
fundraising during Grimm’s first cam-
paign, protested, saying he was ask-
ing “a valid question.”
During that race, Grimm has
acknowledged receiving $250,000 to
$300,000 in contributions from fol-
lowers of an Israeli rabbi. Some mem-
bers of the rabbi’s congregation sub-
sequently said they made tens of thou-
sands of dollars in illegal contribu-
tions, including gifts passed through
straw donors.
Grimm has denied knowledge of any
improprieties, and the FBI hasn’t
accused him of any wrongdoing. The
Israeli businessman who served as
Grimm’s liaison to the rabbi’s follow-
ers pleaded guilty in August to an
immigration fraud charge.
Three days after that guilty plea, the
FBI filed a sealed criminal complaint
accusing a Houston woman named
Diana Durand, who had been romanti-
cally involved with Grimm, of using
straw donors to make illegal campaign
On Friday, Durand was indicted in
Brooklyn on those charges. She also
was charged with making false state-
ments to the FBI when she said she did-
n’t reimburse straw donors for their
contributions to Grimm’s campaign.
Attorney Stuart Kaplan said Durand
would plead not guilty to the charges.
Kaplan, who said Durand and Grimm
met in Texas before Grimm ran for
Congress, said he was hopeful prose-
cutors wouldn’t join the two cases.
“When you take out their relation-
ship, there’s no evidence to connect
either one with respect to complicity,
violating the law by acting in concert
or doing something as a criminal
enterprise,” he said.
A spokesman in Grimm’s
Washington office did not immediately
return emails or a telephone message
seeking comment Friday.
A House member who has been
indicted does not lose any rights or
privileges under federal law or the
chamber’s rules, according to a report
by the nonpartisan Congressional
Research Service.
Rules used by the two major political
parties require indicted committee or
subcommittee chairmen, or members
of a party’s leadership, to temporarily
step aside. Grimm is not a chairman or
a member of the leadership.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you are looking to
move forward in your career, find out everything
you can about your chosen field. Social media,
libraries or even your workplace will help you
prepare your strategy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Someone has been
singing your praises. You must be ready to take action
and prove you are worthy. The window of opportunity
for positive change will be small. Take the plunge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your creative juices are
flowing. Keep yourself active mentally and physically,
and get the most out of your day. Take on new
challenges and activities in order to feel motivated.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Variety is the spice of life.
Get involved in as many activities and hobbies as you
can. The new experiences and friends involved will
keep you stimulated and interested.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Make sure you and the
other party are compatible before getting involved
in a partnership. Rather than act impulsively, spend
time delegating work and discovering commonalities.
Better to be safe than sorry.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — A loved one could use
a little nurturing. If you’re sensitive to the feelings
of others, you will gain respect and a valuable ally.
Show compassion to everyone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You can smooth out
business relationships by learning more about your
colleagues. Be friendly and approachable, but keep
your personal information out of the conversation.
Instead, listen and learn.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Your popularity
is growing. Although you have set a high standard,
continue with your self-improvement plans. You will
be admired for the positive personal changes you
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Unsettling
confrontations can be expected. Complete as much
of your work as possible before someone challenges
you or goads you into an argument. You can avoid
trouble if you keep a low profile.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Some positive
changes are heading your way. An old friend is
likely to surface. A phone call or email exchange
with this person will remind you of the good times
you had together.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Take decisive action
at all costs today. You have everything you need, but
your dreams will not come true until you have put
your plans in motion.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Consider minor changes
to your home or lifestyle. Look at your options before
making a purchase. Once you have investigated the
possibilities, you will make an ideal choice.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-
321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
