Some Mills High School par-
ents are expressing concern about
a new charter school that could be
located at the Millbrae campus
this coming fall and the level of
community outreach in the dis-
trict’s decision-making process.
Safety and lack of transparency
are two of the major concerns
Mills parents expressed about
Design Tech High School being
housed at the school. Parents just
recently heard that at the end of
March the San Mateo Union High
School District approved sending
a letter to the new charter offering
six Mills classrooms, each with
960 square feet of space.
“I’m concerned about why this
wasn’t discussed with the commu-
nity,” said parent Rob Mantler at a
meeting held for Mills parents by
the district Thursday night.
The 520-student school that
focuses on design and hands-on
project-based learning, approved
in November 2013, will open with
just a freshmen class in August,
then add on classes each subse-
quent year. The educational model

With consumers going through
phones, laptops, tablets and
other devices more quickly than
in the past, Burlingame’s
GreenCitizen is working to divert
millions of pounds of electronic
waste that result from items
being discarded into landfills.
On Earth Day, April 22, the
company celebrated its ninth
anniversary. Last year, it diverted
2.5 million pounds of e-waste
from landfills. This year, it’s on
track for 3.1 million and it’s
opening more recycling centers.
Its mission is to develop a sus-
tainable metropolitan model that
provides the most convenient
and accountable ways for individ-
uals and businesses to reuse and
recycle elec-
“ W e ’ r e
addressing the
electronic recy-
cling crisis,”
said James
Kao, founder
and CEO of
GreenCi t i zen.
“What do we do
with all these recyclable elec-
tronic items that have precious
metals and toxins?”
By reusing glass, plastic, alu-
minum and heavy metals — such
as lead, copper and mercury —
recycling averts the energy used
and pollution linked with mining
and drilling for new materials,
the company says.
Kao’s idea in 2002 was to cre-
ate a hub to sort electronic waste
by either having items recycled
or putting them up for sale for
reuse. While watching a PBS doc-
umentary on illegally dumped
electronic waste he decided he
wanted to find a solution and
went on to spend two years
researching. Previously, Kao
started three software companies
and worked at Hewlett Packard
after receiving a bachelor’s
degree and MBA from University
of California at Los Angeles.
“There weren’t really any sys-
tems to deal with this problem,”
he said.
The company does free pickups
of e-waste items if a business has
at least 10 of the following
items: desktops, laptops, smart-
phones, monitors, servers and

The easy joke is that coroner is a
dead-end job.
But for the two men running for
that office on the June ballot —
incumbent Robert Foucrault and
challenger Rick Dalton — the
position is a very serious matter.
The two sat down with the Daily
Journal to discuss why each feels
they are the best person to head
the office which

or equivalent
although both
Foucrault and Dalton said they
bring other skills that make them
the perfect candidate.
Foucrault, 51, joined the office
in 1992 as a body remover and
autopsy technician. He was named
coroner in 2001 after the death of
predecessor Adrian “Bud”
Moorman and elected in three con-
tested races since. He served twice
as president of the California State
Coroner’s Association and is cur-
rently helping develop curricu-
“It pays to have high-level
experience,” Foucrault said of who
voters should want in the office.
Dalton, 48, has little negative
to say about Foucrault and the
office’s current operations but
believes democracy means incum-
bents don’t always run unopposed
or win.
“I believe it’s time for a new set
of eyes on this office,” Dalton
said. “It’s time for a change and I’d

Biker looks for false
teeth on busy Spain highway
MADRID — Amotorcyclist brought
traffic to a standstill on one of
Madrid’s busiest highways after he
pulled over to look for his false teeth,
which flew out of his mouth when he
sneezed, according to local media
Two municipal police officers
approached the motorcyclist Saturday
and ordered him to resume his journey
for his own safety and that of other
drivers on the capital’s M-30 high-
way, Europa Press reported. It wasn’t
known if the man found his dentures.
City police weren’t immediately
available to confirm the report and
provide more details.
New Jersey tot wipes
out hours of monks’ work
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — ANew Jersey
tot has made his inadvertent mark on
an intricate sand display created by
Buddhist monks.
The monks have been building a
sand mandala in Jersey City’s munic-
ipal building since Monday. It’s a
flat, multicolored display that is cre-
ated and then destroyed in a ceremo-
ny meant to symbolize the fleeting
nature of life.
The Jersey Journal reports the
young boy climbed over a rope barrier
Friday and got onto the 4-foot-square
display. The sides and middle were
smudged as a result.
Some of the monks spent a few
hours repairing the sand in time for its
ritual destruction Friday afternoon.
They led a group to the Hudson River
and threw the sand into the water.
Dead cats found hanging in New
York City suburb were beaten
HITE PLAINS, N.Y. — About 25 dead
cats found in plastic bags hanging
from trees in a New York suburb were
apparently killed with blows to the
head at various times over the past
year, an investigator said Friday.
Ernest Lungaro, director of enforce-
ment at the Westchester County SPCA,
said necropsies on three of the cats
revealed blunt trauma to their skulls.
“Pretty disturbing, smashing their
heads in and displaying them like
that,” he said. “We have found, in the
past, cases where cats were poisoned,
but we’ve never seen anything where
they’re killing them this violently. ”
Lungaro said a baseball bat, two
shovels and a metal pipe were found
near the scene in a wooded area just off
Overlook Terrace in Yonkers, about a
mile and a half north of the Bronx. He
said investigators were not yet sure
that those items had been used in the
It also wasn’t known if the killings
were the work of one or more people,
he said. Either way, they are disturbing
because of studies that indicate a link
between the killings of animals and
violence against people, Lungaro
“The sheer number of cats that were
killed with blunt trauma to the head,
it’s pretty violent,” he said.
Some of the cats were just skeletons
and some had been dead only three
days, Lungaro said. The necropsies
were done on the most recently killed
The strange scene was discovered
Thursday by a public works crew doing
an annual cleanup. The SPCA was
called in and counted 25 bodies,
Lungaro said.
“We assume there were probably
more than that because raccoons or
whatever wildlife probably got to a
couple of them,” he said.
He said the necropsies suggest the
cats were killed before they were put
into bags.
Yonkers police and the SPCA are
investigating. Lungaro said some peo-
ple were being questioned but he would
not say whether there was a suspect.
He said there are many feral cats in
the area and there has been some ten-
sion over feeding stations that some
residents have established.
“Some people get frustrated with the
people who feed them,” he said. He
said it was possible the dead cats were
put in the trees “to taunt the people
that are feeding the cats.”

ows are a wonderfully beautiful
group of animals. You can drink
their milk, use their milk for cook-
ing, make butter from the milk (and derive
buttermilk), produce cheese, make yogurt
and eat the meat of the animal and use the
hide for shoes, etc.
Cows are not good forms of transporta-
tion as I found out as a child. You can ride a
cow, but it is extremely uncomfortable and
they do not handle well. Because they do not
like being ridden, they immediately head
toward a tree or barn to lean against. If you
are not fast enough and pull your legs up
from the sides of the cow you will get stuck
between the barn and the cow. They can be
very stubborn and do not go where you want
them to. It is better to leave cows to what
they do best and that is produce milk.
In the early 1900s, many communities
were sparsely settled and land was usually
available for an individual to have a cow or
a number of cows. They did not take much

Beloved wife of the late Paul Wendler III; loving mother of
Paul IV and Michael; caring Grammy of Paul V, Micaela and
Shane; dearest mother-in-law of Kimberly Wendler; and best
friend to her dog, Posey.
Joy-Ann attended Nursing School at Boston College and

Her passions included community service, gardening, traveling, and her family, especially
her three grandchildren. She proudly served on the South San Francisco Planning
Commission and Cultural Arts Commission. She was proud both her sons served as Marine
Corps officers and are veterans, like their father. Joy-Ann will be remembered for her service
to others, to her community and for her uncompromising integrity. She lived life to the fullest
while respecting, and earning respect, of all she came into contact with. She will be sorely
missed by her family, friends and those she helped over the years. A celebration of her life

Thank you thank
you thank you.
This is what I hear
over and over, year
after year, from
families that we
serve. Either
verbally or in hand-written cards or letters
families say thank you: Thank for your
help; Thank you for all you have done to
make this process easier; Thank you for
making this final tribute to my mother one
which will be fondly remembered; Thank
you for your advice; Thank you for being
there for us at a time we needed you most;
Thank you for making it all easy for us;
Thank you for being a friend, etc. To hear
“Thank you” time and time again is a
confirmation for me that our Chapel of the
Highlands crew is doing their best to serve
families who’ve been through a death, in an
appropriate and professional manner, and
that we are doing the right thing in caring
for families during a difficult situation, in
turn making it more of a comfort for them.
Normally saying “You’re welcome” is
the correct response. You’re welcome, or
“You are welcome”, can be taken a number
of different ways. Generally it means you
are always a welcome guest. It can also be
taken as a blessing meaning you wish
wellness on the person who thanked you.
Wishing wellness or health to anyone is a
nice gesture. In recent years though we all
have witnessed the term “You’re welcome”
being substituted with “Thank you” back at
the person who is doing the thanking. This
is “OK”, but saying “You’re welcome” first
is taken as a hospitable and warm gesture.
Now that “Thank you” and “You’re
welcome” have been established, I would
like to say thank you back to the families we
serve: Thank you for supporting the Chapel
of the Highlands. Thank you for your
faithful patronage. Because of you we have
been able to continue with our high
standards and excellent level of service for
many years, since 1952. Thank you to those
families who we’ve helped so many times in
the past. Thank you to the new families
who’ve discovered that we offer them
respect and provide the dignified care that
their loved one deserves.
Your support, and the continued interest
from the community in our service, is what
keeps us going strong and available when
we are needed. Our costs have always been
considered fair, and the funds taken in for
our services are also very much appreciated.
Those Chapel of the Highlands funds along
with our support sifts back to the community
in different ways. Donations to local causes,
along with the donation of time through
membership in service organizations such as
Lions, I.C.F., Historical Society, Chamber
of Commerce, etc. is natural for us. Giving
back as a volunteer via these groups helps in
binding us with our neighbors, together
creating a better community for the future.
All in all there are many ways to say
“Thank you”. Doing so in a variety of ways
can create a circle of gratitude, in turn
making our community a better place.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

After years of vying for the title,
Burlingame High School has finally
landed as the Jefferson Awards regional
role model school for the 2013-14
school year.
The Burlingame High Students in
Action group placed second and third in
the competition that selects schools
based on the quality of their volunteer and
community service work.
“We’ve been trying for many years,”
said Sue Glick, advisor to the group and
youth service coordinator at the school.
“We’re finally the bride and not the
bridesmaid. One of the reasons we won
was membership grew leaps and bounds
this year. A lot of underclassman got
Students from the school will travel to
Washington, D.C. in June to represent the
Bay Area at Jefferson Awards National
Ceremonies during a three-day trip.
Burlingame was selected from a pool of
high schools across San Jose, the East
Bay, San Francisco, Marin County, the
Peninsula and Contra Costa County.
“We worked really hard, so we knew we
were going to place something,” said jun-
ior Sabrina Cherny, one of the four co-
presidents of the club. “We had a passion
for the events.”
One such event was “Smiles for Jorge,”
a fundraiser to collect gift cards during the
holiday season for a student with
leukemia. Notably, the school raised
$55,000 of which $54,000 was donated
to various nonprofits including Soles
without Holes and Bread Tags to purchase
wheelchairs in South Africa. The group
also created plastic water bottles, which
raised money and heightened awareness
for the group on campus. Seven students
and three parents were recognized and
honored for their dedication to service.
Cherney attributes the award to their
passion for the events. The group defi-
nitely improved from last school year,
said co-president and senior Juliana
Benfica. Membership expanded at all
grade levels, increased fundraising and
created a more fully engaged student body
and increased staff participation, the
award states.
“Events are a lot more personal for us,”
said Benfica, who plans on majoring in
international business at San Diego State
University this fall.
Doing work for the club, which first
began in 2006, has had a positive impact
on its members.
“It’s changed me as a person,” Cherny
said. “It helped me realize little things are
so insignificant.”
Cherny’s sister Jessica Cherny, one of
three triplets also in the club, said the
group has motivated her to help others
and make a difference in the community.
Diana Cherny, the other triplet, is the one
who brought the girls to the club back
when they were freshmen.
Also notably, San Mateo High School
tied for third place in the annual competi-
tion. Its achievements include raising
$52,000 and collecting 12,000 pounds of
food. Nine students and five adults from
the school received Jefferson Awards.
The Jefferson Awards for Public Service
was founded in 1972 to create a Nobel
prize for public and community service.

2 planes collide over
northern San Francisco Bay
RICHMOND — The Coast Guard searched
for a pilot in the northern part of San
Francisco Bay on Sunday after two small
planes collided over the water and only one
of the aircraft landed safely, authorities
Debris was spotted in San Pablo Bay after
the 4:05 p.m. collision near the Richmond-
San Rafael Bridge, Petty Officer Loumania
Stewart said.
The collision involved a single-engine
Cessna 210 and a single-engine Hawker Sea
Fury TMK 20, Federal Aviation
Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.
Each aircraft had one person on board.
The Cessna crashed into the water and the
pilot of the Hawker was able to land safely
at Eagle’s Nest Airport in the small
Northern California city of Ione, Gregor
said. The pilot was reportedly uninjured.
Gregor said both planes took off from
Half Moon Bay Airport, roughly 20 miles
south of San Francisco.
FAA records indicate the Hawker is regis-
tered to Sanders Aeronautics Inc. in Ione. A
man who answered the phone at the compa-
ny’s listed number declined to comment.
Sanders Aeronautics’ website said the
family-run company specializes in air-
craft restoration and that its family
members are avid air racers.
A Coast Guard cutter, three rescue boats
and a helicopter were involved in the
search, Stewart said.
Alcohol, speed apparent
factors in double fatal crash
MENLO PARK — Alcohol and speed
appear to have played roles in a car crash
that left two people dead off of Highway 101
in Menlo Park early Saturday morning,
according to the California Highway Patrol.
The driver of the vehicle, Gaudi Roxxane-
Salgado Barrios, a 26-year-old East Palo
Alto woman, and passenger Taufa Toutai
Pupunu, a 27-year-old Redwood City man,
were both pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash was reported on southbound
Highway 101 near the Willow Road off-
ramp at 1:52 a.m., the CHP said.
Barrios was speeding when she lost con-
trol of the car. It struck a tree, which
launched it into the air and into another
tree, the CHP said.
The Willow Road off-ramp was closed
until about 3:30 a.m. while the CHP inves-
tigated the crash.
The results of a preliminary investigation
into the crash indicate that alcohol appears
to have been factors in the crash in addition
to speed, according to the CHP.
Investigators continue to probe the cir-
cumstances surrounding the deadly crash.
Redwood City officials are ready to take
another step toward a special assessment
district for downtown businesses to fund
services beyond what the city provides.
The City Council Monday night is hold-
ing a public hearing with a second reading
of the ordinance proposing the Community
Benefit Improvement District. If approved,
the city can move ahead with businesses to
finalize a district management plan and
launch a petition drive. An all-mail vote by
affected property owners could happen by
late summer with the district officially
delivering services in early 2015.
The proposed city ordinance calls for
the petition for creation to be signed by
property owners paying at least 30 per-
cent of the proposed assessments and no
one owner can account for more than
two-thirds of that 30 percent
The ordinance was previously introduced
but has been slightly modified since to clar-
ify that the city charter gives the authority
to adopt district creation procedures and
that if the amount of the assessment doesn’t
change it can be renewed by resolution in
subsequent years.
If established, the district will fund extras
like security, sidewalk cleaning and promo-
tion beyond Redwood City’s $2.5 million
spent on maintenance and services in down-
town. City officials have said the impetus
for the CBID is the growing population and
popularity of downtown coupled with the
dissolution of its redevelopment agency.
The Redwood City Council meets 7 p.m.

REDWOOD CITY — An elderly man
accused of shooting at a doctor at a Daly
City medical Center Wednesday was
arraigned in a Redwood City courtroom
Friday on charges of attempted murder and
assault with a deadly weapon.
Daly City resident Raymond Iwase, 84,
did not enter a plea to the charges, or to
enhancements for premeditated and deliber-
ate attempted murder, for discharging a
firearm and committing serious felonies,
according to the San Mateo County District
Attorney’s Office.
The arraignment came two days after the
defendant entered the medical office building
at 1500 Southgate Ave. and allegedly shot at
a doctor working there, according to police.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said
Iwase allegedly entered the medical center
and shot at a doctor and said “’You gave me
a shot in the past and you made me sick,’”
referring to care he had apparently received
from the doctor a couple of years ago.
Wagstaffe said the doctor, who was unin-
jured, ducked around a corner and started
yelling at others occupants of the build-
ing to get out.
Someone inside the building called 911
and reported hearing a gunshot on the sec-
ond floor around 1:30 p.m. People in the
building were either evacuated or told to
shelter in place while officers searched for
a suspect.
Police said witnesses at the scene identi-
fied Iwase as the suspected gunman.
He was arrested at his home on
Plymouth Circle several hours later on
suspicion of attempted murder and taken
to county jail in Redwood City.
Investigators recovered a gun and ammu-
nition at the home, according to police.
Iwase is scheduled to return to court for
further arraignment on May 1.

WASHINGTON — A California
congresswoman is tapping into
her Silicon Valley ties as she
seeks the top Democratic posi-
tion on the powerful House
Energy and Commerce
U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo
Alto, now in her 11th term repre-
senting the Bay Area, has recently
formed a political action commit-
tee to collect donations that she
in turn is donating to the cam-
paigns of Democratic lawmakers
facing tough re-election battles.
The pass-through of money, all
perfectly legal, is how senior
members of Congress work to
secure and maintain plum leader-
ship posi-
tions. It’s also
how companies
support senior
lawmakers in
hopes it will be
r e me mb e r e d
down the road.
F e d e r a l
E l e c t i o n
Co mmi s s i o n
records show that Eshoo filed
paperwork on Feb. 24 to organize
the “Peninsula PAC.” The politi-
cal action committee has collect-
ed more than $200,000. It has
distributed about $96,000 to the
campaign committees of two
dozen lawmakers facing tough re-
election battles, such as
California Reps. Ami Bera, Julia
Brownley, Raul Ruiz and Scott
Peters, the FEC records show. The
four freshmen are the GOP’s top
California targets in this year’s
midterm elections.
The people and companies
donating to the Peninsula PAC
reads like a who’s who of tech-
nology companies and their chief
executives. The political action
committees for Google Inc.,
Oracle Corp., Hewlett-Packard
Co., Intel Corp. and Cisco
Systems Inc. were among the tech
companies that gave $5,000, the
maximum amount per year, t o
Eshoo’s committee. Several
Oracle executives, including
founder Larry Ellison, also donat-
ed the maximum allowed.
Jude Barry, a political strate-
gist who oversees a consulting
firm based in Silicon Valley, said
the region’s companies are striv-
ing to increase their clout in
Washington, so the donations are
an extension of that focus.
“They know the issues the
Hill is dealing with are critical-
ly important to the future of
t echnol ogy i n t hi s count ry, ”
Barry said. “Her district is tech
central. Not only are major
companies located in the dis-
trict, so are tens of thousands of
t echnol ogy workers.
Consequently she’ll be respon-
sive to Silicon Valley issues for
both of those reasons.”
Eshoo is hoping to succeed
Rep. Henry Waxman as top
Democrat on the committee. The
decision will be made next year
after the new Congress convenes
following the November elec-
tions. The other top contender for
the spot, Rep. Frank Pallone of
New Jersey, also has an active
leadership PAC.
The Energy and Commerce has
jurisdiction over a wide range of
issues affecting the economy,
health care and the environment.
Leading pharmaceutical compa-
nies such as Amgen Inc., Pfizer
Inc. and Johnson & Johnson
donated to Eshoo’s leadership
PAC as did top telecommunica-
tions companies such Sprint
Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc.
However, energy concerns were
mostly absent. Eshoo has been
highly critical of developing the
Keystone XL pipeline.

ful storm front rumbled through
parts of the Plains, Midwest and
South on Sunday, spawning deadly
tornadoes and heavy hail and rain,
and damaging or destroying struc-
tures in several states.
A tornado killed two people in
Quapaw, a small community in
northeastern Oklahoma, near its
borders with Kansas and Missouri,
Ottawa County sheriff’s dispatcher
Colleen Thompson said. She said
the twister hit the city at around
5:30 p.m. and that the extent of
the damage was still unknown.
Keli Cain, a spokeswoman for
Oklahoma Department of
Emergency Management, said
agency staff members were headed
to the Quapaw area to assess the
damage. She said a local official
reported that Quapaw’s fire station
was heavily damaged.
“We’re hearing that there’s quite
a bit of damage to the north side of
town,” Cain said.
Tornado warnings, which indi-
cate the greatest threat of a strike,
were in effect for parts of northwest
Mississippi and western Missouri
as of 6 p.m. CDT. In addition to the
tornado strike in Oklahoma,
twisters also had reportedly
touched down Sunday in Nebraska,
Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.
A funnel cloud touched down
northwest of Joplin, Mo., where a
massive tornado in May 2011
killed 161 people, injured many
others and leveled a large swath of
the city. Sunday’s twister wasn’t
expected to hit Joplin, the weath-
er service reported.
A tornado reportedly caused
damage in or near Baxter Springs,
Kan., which is in the state’s
southeast corner near its borders
with Oklahoma to the south and
Missouri to the east.
Central Arkansas, including the
Little Rock area, was a high risk
of severe storms later Sunday,
reported the National Weather
Service’s Storm Prediction Center
in Norman, Okla.
Forecasters also asked people to
be alert Sunday for possible torna-
does in a wide swath of the
Midwest and south, stretching
from Omaha, Neb., south to Texas
and east to northern Louisiana and
The first reported tornado from
the storm system touched down
Sunday afternoon in a rural area in
central in Nebraska. The weather
service said it remained on the
ground for only a short time, and
there were no immediate reports of

LIVERMORE — Ayoung mother
has admitted to investigators that
she stabbed her 7-month-old son to
death in a popular Northern
California park, police said Sunday.
Ashley Newton, 23, of San Jose
was arrested Saturday on suspicion
of murder, the East Bay Regional
Parks District Police Department
said in a statement.
Investigators continue to
interview her family and friends
in an attempt to make sense of
the alleged crime.
“This is an extremely shock-
ing case for us,” said Chief
Timothy Anderson of the park’s
police department.
The motive remains unclear, but
Anderson said that Newton had a
history of depression and appeared
to have self-inflicted knife wounds
on her wrist.
Police were called at 10:30 a.m.
Saturday on reports of a damaged
Honda sedan in the Del Valle
Regional Park east of San
Francisco. They found the car
abandoned with the engine run-
ning and an empty child’s seat.
Officers were about to tow the car
by 12:30 p.m., believing it was
involved in a hit-and-run, when
Newton walked up to them holding
her lifeless baby, Anderson said.
Officers attempted to resusci-
tate the baby, but Anderson said
they were unsuccessful.
Newton was placed under arrest
after she made statements impli-
cating herself in the stabbing,
Anderson said, adding that inves-
tigators believe they found a
knife in the area that was used in
the alleged crime.

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York City
spends more than a million dollars
every year to distribute free con-
doms to combat unintended preg-
nancies and diseases such as AIDS.
Yet city police are allowed to con-
fiscate those very condoms as evi-
dence of prostitution.
That conflict is behind the latest
legislative proposal to make New
York the first state to prohibit con-
doms — specifically the existence
of multiple condoms — from being
used as evidence in prostitution
cases, a widespread practice that
advocates say undermines decades
of public health goals.
“There may be no actual evi-
dence, and the condom is their
only way to trying to prove it,”
said Hawk Kinkaid, a former male
escort who now advocates on their
behalf in New York City. “The fear
that this will be used against you
— it prevents people from being
able to protect themselves.”
The practice has come under
criticism across the country, with
prosecutors in San Francisco,
Brooklyn and Nassau County in
suburban New York City
announcing last year they will no
longer use condoms as evidence
in prostitution cases.
Nassau County District Attorney
Kathleen Rice said she decided the
benefits of condoms as evidence
don’t outweigh the public health
impact. Most prostitution cases
don’t go to trial, and trafficking
cases typically require much
greater evidence.
“Sex workers are more likely vic-
tims than they are criminals, and
condom evidence was rarely of any
value to a prosecution,” Rice said.
“If you need that condom so badly
in the case against a trafficker, then
you don’t have a good case.”
Legislation to formally abolish
the practice across New York state
has so far fallen flat. The New
York Police Department, which
makes about 2,500 prostitution
arrests a year, has long opposed
the bill but said Friday it was tak-
ing a look at its policy of using
condoms as evidence.
A2010 study by the New York
City Department of Health sur-
veyed more than 60 sex workers
and found that more than half
had had condoms confiscated by
police. Nearly a third said they
had at times not carried con-
doms because they feared get-
ting into trouble.

Safety at Pillar Point
Harbor should come first
The new hoist location on Johnson
Pier at Pillar Point Harbor (“New fish
hoist raises concerns at Pillar Point”
in the April 18 edition of the Daily
Journal) will harm small business
owners by causing unnecessary
delays in commercial fishing opera-
tions, creates a workplace hazard and
jeopardizes public safety.
Pillar Point Harbor is a working
harbor that attracts many tourists,
and worker and visitor safety should
be an absolute priority. While the
Harbor Commission is focusing on
obtaining revenue from additional
unloading fees from the new hoist,
who is going to pay for someone
getting injured as a result of the now
extremely crowded work space?
Imagine a busy day on Johnson Pier
where fishermen unload their catch,
forklifts move around to help load
semi-trailers with heavy bins of fresh
fish, and the occasional inquisitive
family with a baby stroller navigates
through this on a narrow pier. Now,
all this activity has to maneuver
around an awkward new hoist loca-
tion. Increased revenue is a good
thing, but not when safety is jeop-
ardized along the way.
The Harbor Commission needs to
listen to the stakeholders impacted
by their decisions. The Harbor
District should make every effort to
support small fishing businesses
and their desires to keep Pillar
Point Harbor a safe workplace. It is
unacceptable that the Harbor
District’s answer to the earlier col-
lapse of an existing hoist was that
“it was not clear who was at fault in
that accident because the mainte-
nance logs could not be located”
(Half Moon Bay Review, April 16,
2014). The Harbor District is a pub-
lic agency that has to ensure public
safety and not jeopardize it.

Considering historical
evidence of genocide debate
In his letter, “Azerbaijani
Remembrance Day” (in the April 7
edition of the Daily Journal), Pari
Howard accuses Armenians of geno-
cide against Azerbaijan throughout the
20th century. Howard states that the
Armenian Revolutionary Federation
assisted Russian Bolsheviks in
killing 12,000 Azerbaijanis in 1918.
Although these massacres occurred,
possibly with the help of rogue
Muslim extremists of Armenian
decent, the Armenian people did not
participate in these killings.
Furthermore, Howard failed to men-
tion that in response, Azerbaijan mas-
sacred over 20,000 Armenians living
in Baku.
Howard claims the Armenians
expelled more than 600,000
Azerbaijanis from their “historical
homeland” during the Nagorno-
Kharabakh War from 1988 to 1994.
This is also false. Nagorno-Karabakh
has been populated by ethnic
Armenians, not Azerbaijanis, for the
past 2,000 years. These “expulsions”
were evacuations conducted by the
Azeri government to remove its peo-
ple from the conflict zone in February
1988. Also, Howard accuses the
Armenians of massacring Azerbaijani
civilians during the war. In fact,
Azerbaijan committed acts of geno-
cide by killing hundreds of
Armenians in the villages of Sumgait
and Askeran in 1988. Today,
Azerbaijaini snipers on the border of
Nagorno-Kharabakh target Armenian
civilians and soldiers daily, violat-
ing the armistice of 1994. Just
recently, an Armenian girl was shot
in the chest by an Azeri sniper and an
Armenian soldier was killed.
On behalf of the Carlmont High
School Armenian Club, we encourage
Mr. Howard and the readers of the San
Mateo Daily Journal to carefully con-
sider the historic evidence of
Azerbaijan’s acts of genocide against
the Armenians.

Potheads will be potheads
Pages and pages have been and will
be written about the recent develop-
ments to legalize pot. It really is not
a big deal. Think about it like this:
potheads will be potheads and will
smoke the stuff no matter what. At
least now we are getting some tax
revenue from it, or rather, at least the
Colorado government does.
The underground drug trade revenue
will go down accordingly. That, in
fact, is a good thing. It’s all about the
money. You take the money out of the
equation and you get to a normalized
situation. We will get used to it, just
like paying more for Obamacare with
higher deductibles. Come to think of
it, how will non-citizens meet the
requirement of having health insurance
under Obamacare? Don’t you need a
Social Security number to be able to
claim government subsidies? How can
they afford health insurance nowadays?

The Oklahoman
he Obama administration has
found yet another way to keep
from deciding the fate of the
Keystone XL pipeline’s northern leg,
from Canada to Cushing. This time, to
hear the administration tell it (with a
straight face, no less), a court case
stands in the way.
The State Department recently said
that because of a Nebraska court deci-
sion in February that invalidated part of
the pipeline’s route, a final decision
must be delayed. Conveniently, this
means a final thumbs-up or thumbs-
down almost certainly won’t come until
after November’s midterm elections,
because no resolution to the court fight
is expected until late this year.
It’s interesting that after the court
ruling in February, the administration
said the case wouldn’t have a bearing
on its decision-making. But now State
has decided that federal agencies
wouldn’t be able to measure the impact
of the pipeline until the “uncertainty”
resulting from the litigation was
So a project that’s been studied and
dissected and debated for more than
five years, and shown repeatedly to
merit approval — in January, a State
Department review cited no major
environmental objections related to
the pipeline — must wait even longer,
just so President Barack Obama can
score political points with environ-
Those environmentalists have
thrown a wrench into this project.
They’ve voiced concerns about the
pipeline’s route, concerns that were
addressed in revisions to the route.
They’ve barked about the potential
damage that could be inflicted to land
and water by leaks in the pipeline, but
moving oil in this manner is far safer
than moving it via rail — a practice
that has only increased as Keystone
has languished.
But of course, this is a blatantly
political decision by Obama. He is
bowing to people like Tom Steyer, the
San Francisco billionaire who wants
Keystone scuttled. Steyer has pledged
to spend $100 million this year back-
ing Democrats who feel as he does
about climate change, and going after
those who don’t .
That seems to be the one certainty:
Keystone will get rejected by this
anti-fossil fuel administration. The
only question is when.
Obama and Keystone XL Ready for Super Bowl ‘16
t wasn’t too long ago that the hotel scene in San
Mateo county was dismal. Plans for the WHotel, site
of the new Kaiser medical center off Hillsdale
Boulevard, were shelved during the economic downturn.
Soon a new airport hotel will add 300-400 high-end
rooms. The county is looking to pick up some significant
revenue because SFO is on county land. Meanwhile, 7,750
rooms have been booked in the county for Super Bowl 50
in February 2016.
Anne LeClair, president and CEO of the San Mateo
County Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau,
said the hotel market in San Mateo County and Palo Alto
is incredibly strong right now.
“Expectations are that the high occupancy and higher
rates are here to stay for quite a while. Hotels continue to
pump money into renovations and their guests continue to
boost our local economy with their spending on shopping
and dining,” she said. “Our area is a prime destination.”
LeClair and her staff are courting Brazil and other Latin
American countries to add to the list of other foreign visi-
tors from Mexico, Canada, the U.K., Germany, France and
China. International travel-
ers make up about 12 per-
cent of the county’s hotel
occupants. Most, about 80
percent, are corporate and
conference customers.
Leisure travelers account
for about 8 percent.
LeClair can’t claim all
the credit for this good
news but she has played a
significant role in putting
San Mateo County on the
map, and bringing in more
visitors, business and rev-
enue. One of the first
changes she made was
charging hotels rather than
the cities for the services of the convention bureau. She
has a track record of being the first and stirring up the pot.
The San Mateo Chamber of Commerce was a do-nothing
all-boys organization whose main project was lighting
Christmas trees downtown. When longtime chamber head
Ken Brown decided to retire, LeClair had recently settled
in the area with her family and was looking for a job. A
graduate of Georgetown University, she had previously
worked as a lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber in D.C. Before
she married husband Jim, he was a former quarterback for
the San Francisco 49ers in 1966, the Denver Broncos in
1967-68 and the New York Giants in 1969. It was perfect
training for keeping up with his bride.
LeClair applied for the job and Brown said it’s yours
without much of a review. She wasn’t introduced to the
board. When she asked wasn’t that necessary, she was told
no. The next thing she knew there was a headline in the
then San Mateo Times — “Chamber head forced out, picks
his own successor, chamber board livid.” The chamber
board met for a showdown with LeClair. Board member
Dick DeLuna wanted to know why she was coming in
through the back door. Others looked very unhappy with
the new hire. Then LeClair launched into a presentation of
where she would lead the organization. The board soon
realized they had a home run.
The San Mateo chamber, under LeClair, became a major
player in the city and attracted new members and new busi-
nesses. She was also the first woman to head the chamber.
Now female chamber heads are the rule not the exception.
Linda Asbury followed LeClair, and Cheryl Angeles is the
current president and CEO.
LeClair was also the first woman, along with Barbara
Evers of Borel Bank, to be allowed in the all male bastion
of the San Mateo Rotary Club. That was in 1988. They
were not welcomed by all and some men refused to sit with
them. But it wasn’t too long before LeClair and Evers were
elected as presidents of the club. LeClair was at the cham-
ber for 14 years and next year will mark her 14th year as
head of the convention and visitors bureau. She was also
the first female head there. LeClair not only broke the
glass ceiling. She shattered it. And no one could be happi-
er than the guys who appointed her.
San Mateo’s new power couple — Anna and Jay Kuhre.
She serves on the city’s Public Works Commission and is
active in the San Mateo United Homeowners Association.
He was just appointed to the Sustainability Commission.
They join other power couples from the past: county
supervisors Ed Bacciocco and Jackie Speier; Colma coun-
cilmembers Helen and Dennis Fisicaro; and Redwood City
councilmembers Rosanne Foust and Jim Harnett.
I was complaining about food prices at the local grocery
— milk, eggs, etc. The checker said dairy products were
up because of the drought but he didn’t know about eggs.
He asked another checked why. The reply. “The chickens
got a raise.”

By Larry Neumesiter
NEW YORK — For decades, Sam and
Charles Wyly won admiration as Texas
entrepreneurs skilled at building businesses
worth billions of dollars. But a regulatory
agency is casting them in a new light at a
civil trial, saying the brothers earned more
than $500 million through fraud and decep-
tion by secretly trading the securities of
public companies they controlled.
The onetime IBM Corp. employees have
a long string of business successes. They
took a small chain of Bonanza Steakhouses
national before successfully marketing an
arts and crafts retail chain, Michaels Stores
Inc. — which sold for $6 billion — and
then rode the technology boom of the
1990s with their company Sterling
Software, which Computer Associates
bought for $4 billion.
Their success for a time put Sam Wyly on
the Forbes list of billionaires and elevated
the brothers’ status in Dallas, where they
have donated millions of dollars to mostly
conservative Republican candidates and
causes and $20 million to help build Dallas’
performing arts center.
The Securities and Exchange Commission
says they ran afoul of securities laws in the
early 1990s when they embraced the teach-
ings of a speaker at an asset and wealth
preservation seminar. The SEC said they set
up secret offshore trusts in the Isle of Man
to make millions of dollars in trades on the
securities of four public companies they
controlled. And they are accused of doing all
this while hiding the activity from regula-
tory agencies and investors entitled to
know the true extent of their ownership.
“This is a case about lies, deception and
fraud,” SEC lawyer Bridget Fitzpatrick told
a Manhattan jury in opening statements at
the trial for Samuel Wyl y, 79, and the estate
of his brother, who died in a 2011 car acci-
dent in Aspen, Colorado, at 77.
She said the men used money they earned
through the trusts to build businesses and
homes and to fund an Aspen art gallery and
a Dallas horse farm.
The lawyer said the offshore investments
enabled them to claim they owned less than
20 percent of Michaels when they owned
over 40 percent and that they owned less
than 1 percent of Scottish Annuity & Life
Holdings, also known as Scottish Re, when
they owned up to 16 percent.
Fitzpatrick also alleged the men
engaged in insider trading by making a
$40 million bet in 1999 that the price of
Sterling Software would go up when they
knew it was a sure thing because they were
trying to sell it.
On that point, Wyly defended himself
from the witness stand in the past week,
insisting he got it “garbled in my mind” by
saying in interviews that he decided in the
summer of 1999 to sell Sterling Software.
When he was shown in court that he said the

WASHINGTON — A White House review
of how the government and private sector
use large sets of data has found that such
information could be used to discriminate
against Americans on issues such as hous-
ing and employment even as it makes their
lives easier in many ways.
“Big data” is everywhere.
It allows mapping apps to ping cell-
phones anonymously and determine, in real
time, what roads are the most congested.
But it also can be used to target economical-
ly vulnerable people.
The issue came up during a 90-day review
ordered by President Barack Obama, White
House counselor John Podesta said in an
interview with The Associate Press. Podesta
did not discuss all the findings, but said the
potential for discrimination is an issue that
warrants a closer look.
Federal laws have not kept up with the rapid
development of technology in a way that
would shield people from discrimination.
The review, expected to be released within
the next week, is the Obama administra-
tion’s first attempt at addressing the vast
landscape of challenges, beyond national
security and consumer privacy, posed by
technological advancements.
President Barack Obama requested the
review in January, when he called for
changes to some of the National Security
Agency’s surveillance programs that amass
large amounts of data belonging to
Americans and foreigners.
The technology that enabled those pro-
grams also enables others used in the gov-
ernment and the private sector. The White
House separately has reviewed the NSApro-
grams and proposed changes to rein in the
massive collection of Americans’ phone
records and emails.
“It was a moment to step back and say,
‘Does this change our basic framework or
our look at the way we’re dealing with
records and privacy,”’ Podesta said in the
“With the rapidity of the way technology
changes, it’s going to be hard to imagine
what it’s going to look like a generation
from now. But at least we can look out over
the horizon and say, ‘Here are the trends.
What do we anticipate the likely policy
issues that it raises?”’
Podesta led the review, along with some
of Obama’s economic and science advisers.
The goal, Podesta said, was to assess
whether current laws and policies about pri-
vacy are sufficient.
Podesta would not discuss the specific rec-
ommendations he will make to Obama. He
did mention an unexpected concern that
emerged during White House officials’ meet-
ings with business leaders and privacy
advocates, and merits further examination:
how big data could be used to target con-
sumers and lead to discriminatory practices.
Civil rights leaders, for example, raised
in discussions with the White House the
issue of employers who use data to map
where job applicants live and then rate them
based on that, particularly in low-paying
service jobs.
“While big data is revolutionizing com-
merce and government for the better, it is
also supercharging the potential for discrim-
ination,” said Wade Henderson, president and
chief executive officer of the Leadership
Conference on Civil and Human Rights.
Some employers might worry that if an
applicant lives far enough away from a job,
he or she may not stay in the position for
long. As more jobs move out of the city and
into the suburbs, this could create a hiring
system based on class.
“You’re essentially being dinged for a job
for really arbitrary characteristics,” said
Chris Calabrese, a lawyer with the American
Civil Liberties Union. “Use of this data has
a real impact on peoples’ lives.”
The civil rights advocates could not offer
specific examples of such injustices, but
instead talked about how the data could be
used in a discriminatory way.
Federal employment laws don’t address
this nuanced tactic, Calabrese said.
Similarly, anti-discrimination laws for
housing make it illegal to target customers
based on credit reports. But the laws don’t
address the use of other data points that
could group people into clusters based on
information gleaned from social media.
For instance, companies sell data
amassed from social media sites that clumps
people into clusters, such as the “Ethnic
Second-City Struggler” category. A bank
could target people who posted something
on social media about losing a job as a like-
ly candidate for a high-interest loan. The
idea is that a person who lost a job may be
behind on mortgage payments and might be
open to a high-interest loan to help get out
of a bind, Calabrese said.
Discrimination potential seen in ‘big data’ use
By Mark Sherman
WASHINGTON — Two Supreme
Court cases about police searches of
cellphones without warrants present
vastly different views of the ubiqui-
tous device.
Is it a critical tool for a criminal or
is it an American’s virtual home?
How the justices answer that ques-
tion could determine the outcome of
the cases being argued Tuesday. Adrug
dealer and a gang member want the
court to rule that the searches of their
cellphones after their arrest violated
their right to privacy in the digital
The Obama administration and
California, defending the searches,
say cellphones are no different from
anything else a person may be carry-
ing when arrested. Police may search
those items without a warrant under a
line of high court cases reaching back
40 years.
What’s more, said Donald Verrilli
Jr., the administration’s top Supreme
Court lawyer, “Cellphones are now
critical tools in the commission of
The cases come to the Supreme
Court amid separate legal challenges
to the massive warrantless collection
of telephone records by the National
Security Agency and the government’s
use of technology to track Americans’
Librarians, the news media, defense
lawyers and civil liberties groups on
the right and left are trying to con-
vince the justices that they should
take a broad view of the privacy issues
raised when police have unimpeded
access to increasingly powerful
devices that may contain a wealth of
personal data: emails and phone num-
bers, photographs, information about
purchases and political affiliations,
books and a gateway to even more
material online.
“Cellphones and other portable
electronic devices are, in effect, our
new homes,” the American Civil
Liberties Union said in a court filing
that urged the court to apply the same
tough standards to cellphone searches
that judges have historically applied
to police intrusions into a home.
Under the Constitution’s Fourth
Amendment, police generally need a
warrant before they can conduct a
search. The warrant itself must be based
on “probable cause,” evidence that a
crime has been committed.
But in the early 1970s, the Supreme
Court carved out exceptions for offi-
cers dealing with people they have
arrested. The court was trying to set
clear rules that allowed police to look
for concealed weapons and prevent the
destruction of evidence. Briefcases,
wallets, purses and crumpled cigarette
packs all are fair game if they are
being carried by a suspect or within
the person’s immediate control.
Car searches pose a somewhat differ-
ent issue. In 2009, in the case of a sus-
pect handcuffed and placed in the back
seat of a police cruiser, the court said
police may search a car only if the
arrestee “is within reaching distance
of the passenger compartment” or if
police believe the car contains evi-
dence relevant to the crime for which
the person had been arrested.
The Supreme Court is expected to
resolve growing division in state and
federal courts over whether cellphones
deserve special protection.
More than 90 percent of Americans
own at least one cellphone, the Pew
Research Center says, and the majority
of those are smartphones — essential-
ly increasingly powerful computers
that are also telephones.

OAKLAND — The Los Angeles Clippers
made a silent protest against owner Donald
Sterling before Game 4 of their Western
Conference playoff series against Golden
State. The Warriors made a different kind of
statement during the game.
And just like that, a series pulled into a
race-related scandal took another twist.
Stephen Curry made a career playoff-high
seven 3-pointers and scored 33 points, lead-
ing the Warriors past the Clippers 118-97
on Sunday to even their
first-round series at two
games apiece.
“We wanted to come
out and focus on all the
work we’ve put in over
the summer, throughout
the course of the season
to get ready for this
moment in the playoffs
and just have fun and
enjoy it — not let one person ruin it for
everybody,” Curry said.
The game almost became an afterthought
— until tipoff anyway — after an audio
recording was posted Saturday online by
TMZ purportedly of Sterling making com-
ments urging a woman to not bring black
people to his team’s games. The alleged
comments, which are under investigation
by the NBA, have set off reactions of anger
and calls for action through the league.
Clippers players made a silent protest
against Sterling by shedding their warm-up
jerseys and going through the pregame rou-
tine with their red shirts on inside out. They
also wore black bands on their wrists or
arms and black socks in a show of solidarity.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he knew
what his players had planned but didn’t
voice his opinion. He said he wasn’t
thrilled about the demonstration, though he
didn’t elaborate why.
Curry and company did a better job focus-
ing from the start.
The All-Star guard made his first five 3s to
give Golden State a 20-point lead in the first
quarter that held up most of the way. Curry
shot 10 for 20 from the floor, including 7 of
14 from beyond the arc, and had seven
assists and seven rebounds to help the
Warriors ride hot hand of Curry to even series at 2-2
CCSF sophomore Myles Holmes took first place in each of the four races in which he competed
at Saturday’s Coast Conference track and field finals at the College of San Mateo.
By Terry Bernal
Myles Holmes raised his fists in victory
as he handed the baton to Zac Schuller for
City College of San Francisco’s final leg of
the 4x100 meter relay.
Holmes’ triumphant reaction prefaced the
first of four first-place wins on the day for
the CCSF sophomore at the Coast
Conference Championships Saturday at the
College of San Mateo.
“As I passed it off I knew it was over, ”
Holmes said. “I knew he was going to take
the win.”
A 2012 graduate of Jefferson, Holmes
went 4 for 4 in taking a quartet of top hon-
ors. In addition to capturing first place in
the 4x100 meter relay (41.30 seconds),
Holmes also medaled with the top time in
the 200 meter (21.9), the 400 meter (50.54)
and the 4x400 meter relay (3:20.25).
In qualifying for the Northern California
Finals May 10 in Cupertino in each of the
events, Holmes paced the CCSF men to a
third-place finish in the Coast Conference
Championships. Hartnell took first place
with 211 points and De Anza finished sec-
ond with 203 points. CCSF totaled 135
points while CSM captured fourth place
with 82 points.
The Hartnell and De Anza women also fin-
ished one-two, with Hartnell taking first
place with 212 points and De Anza capturing
second place with 165 points. Laney, paced
by a prolific day by freshman Kortni Symers-
Jones, finished third with 111 points. CSM’s
women placed fifth with 43 points.
Holmes has D-I hopes
Atwo-sport athlete at CCSF, Holmes’ first
love is football. As a defensive back for the
Rams in 2013-14, the sophomore started all
13 games while totaling four interceptions
and two touchdowns.
Holmes said he has weighed several trans-
fer offers to play football, most of which
have been from Division II programs,

DALY CITY — With the 18th pin and a
championship in sight, Lydia Ko found her-
self in the rough again in a day filled with
off-target drives. The teen told herself she
just needed one more important chip with
the tournament on the line.
Poised and unflappable, Ko made the
perfect pitch up to the green and birdied
the final hole for her first LPGA Tour vic-
tory as a professional and third in all,
holding off Stacy Lewis and Jenny Shin on
Sunday in the inaugural Swinging Skirts
LPGA Classic.
In one memorable week, Ko turned 17,
earned a spot as one of the 100 most influ-
ential people in the world by TIME maga-
zine and captured her first LPGATour win as
a pro — all while playing with a fill-in cad-
die from the local club.
“Normally they would say sweet 16, but
I would say it’s sweet 17,” Ko said. “I
don’t think I could have any better birth-
day week.”
It went down to the final shots, and the
teen made a 6-foot birdie putt moments
before Lewis knocked in a 4-footer of her
own to finish one stroke back.
After beginning the day a stroke behind
Lewis, Ko birdied three of her final four holes
on the front nine on the way to a 3-under 69
and 12-under 276 total at Lake Merced.
Ko earned $270,000, celebrating on the
18th green three days after celebrating her
birthday at the first tee box with the gallery
singing “Happy Birthday. ”
Ko, born in South Korea and raised in New
Zealand, will move up two spots to No. 2 in
the next world ranking.
Her father, G.H., got to see her win Sunday.
“Tears nearly ran down my face. You may
lose friends but you’re always going to have
your parents,” Ko said. “I try to make
myself not cry of happiness but it was com-

SAN FRANCISCO — Brandon Hicks
made the team in spring training when it
became obvious San Francisco’s regular
second baseman, Marco Scutaro, would not
be ready to start the season. He’s made the
most of his opportunity.
Hicks hit a three-run homer with two outs
in the ninth inning to give the San
Francisco Giants a 4-1 victory over the
Cleveland Indians on Sunday, completing a
three-game sweep.
“It felt awesome,” said Hicks, who hit a
game-ending homer for the Oakland
Athletics two years ago. “You always
remember these.”
Hicks signed a minor-league deal with
the Giants last November and made the
club when Scutaro’s lower back strain
remained a problem.
“He had a tremendous spring,” Giants
manager Bruce Bochy said. “With Scutaro
down we needed help there and he’s been get-
ting big hits for us. Two outs in the ninth; it
doesn’t get any better than that.”
Buster Posey led off with a single and
pinch runner Gregor Blanco went to sec-
ond on Juan Perez’s sacrifice bunt. Pablo
Sandoval struck out and Brandon
Crawford, who drove in the Giants first
run, was walked intentionally.
Hicks took a ball and then hit a tower-
ing fly into the left field bleachers, giv-
ing the sellout crowd of 41,530 some-
thing to celebrate.
“I wanted to be ready for it when and if
he threw a fastball,” Hicks said. “He’s a
hard thrower and I was able to get a pitch
up in the zone.”
Sergio Romo (2-0) pitched a scoreless
inning to get the victory. Cory Allen (2-
1), who allowed his first run in 12 games,
took the loss.
“I was not trying to elevate a fastball,”
Allen said. “I was trying to throw a good

Warriors snap a two-game losing
“I just thought they were the
tougher team and it wasn’t even
close. Should have been a first
round knockout,” Rivers said.
Golden State outshot Los
Angeles 55.4 to 42.9 percent. The
Clippers had 19 turnovers, while
the Warriors had a series-low 15
Both coaches and players agreed
that Sterling’s purported com-
ments effected their preparation,
and neither side believed it was a
determining factor in the outcome.
“I think both teams were some-
what bothered by what has taken
place the last 24 hours,” Warriors
coach Mark Jackson said. “But my
guys just played with great energy,
great effort.”
Rivers blamed himself for not
getting his players ready.
“I’m not going to deny that we
had other stuff,” he said. “I just
believe when the game starts, the
game starts and nobody cares
anymore. Golden State surely did-
n’t care.”
Game 5 is Tuesday night in Los
Andre Iguodala added 22 points
and nine assists, and David Lee,
Klay Thompson and Harrison
Barnes each scored 15 as the
Warriors went to a smaller lineup
to regain their shooting touch in
front of a roaring, gold-shirt wear-
ing sellout crowd of 19,596 that
stood after every swish.
“It just all came together,” said
Iguodala, who also had nine
assists and four rebounds.
Jamal Crawford scored 26
points, and Blake Griffin had 21
points and six rebounds for a
Clippers team wrapped up in the
most talked-about topic in sports.
“Maybe our focus wasn’t in the
right place would be the easiest
way to say it,” Clippers guard J.J.
Redick said.
New NBA Commissioner Adam
Silver attended the game and met
privately with former All-Star
guard and current Sacramento
Mayor Kevin Johnson, who is
advising the players union on the
Sterling situation. Johnson even
held a news conference during
halftime that spilled well into the
third quarter.
Silver has said he hopes for a
quick resolution after the league
investigates, and that Sterling has
already agreed not to attend Game
5. Johnson said the players trust
Silver and are hoping for a quick
resolution — and the harshest
penalty possible if the audio
recording is authenticated.
Once the ball was thrown up and
the crowd roared, the Warriors
quickly put the Clippers in a hole
they could never recover from.
Curry’s five 3-pointers in the
first quarter tied a franchise-play-
off record for a quarter, matching a
mark he and Thompson set last
year. Golden State led by 20 in the
first quarter, 23 in the second quar-
ter and 66-48 at the half.
Jackson used a smaller lineup —
with power forward David Lee
playing center for long stretches
instead of Jermaine O’Neal, whom
Jackson said requested the switch
— to spread the floor more than he
had at any point in the series,
which big man Andrew Bogut has
missed with a fractured right rib.
The Clippers never closed with-
in single digits at any point in the
second half.
Curry kept on shooting —
and kept on hitting — to send
the series back to Los Angeles
tied. And with so many in an
uproar over Sterling’s purport-
ed comments, there’s no telling
what the scene will be like at
Staples Center.
“We’re going home now, and
usually that would mean we’re
going to our safe haven,” Rivers
said. “And I don’t even know if
that’s true.”

Adam Silver’s first crisis of his
short tenure as NBA commissioner
has arrived, a race-tinged scandal
leaving those associated with the
game wondering how strongly and
swiftly the league will respond.
Allegations that Los Angeles
Clippers owner Donald Sterling
was caught on tape making racist
comments rapidly overshadowed
perhaps the most entertaining
opening playoff round in league
history. The recording was first
released by TMZ, and there still has
been no official confirmation that
Sterling is on the tape. Another
tape was released Sunday by
Silver’s first priority is verifying
Sterling’s voice is in the recording.
From there, Silver’s next move
remains unclear. He works for the
owners — and so far that group
seems to have no sympathy for
Sterling’s latest controversy.
“I’m obviously disgusted that a
fellow team owner could hold such
sickening and offensive views,”
said Michael Jordan, the six-time
NBA champion player who owns
the Charlotte Bobcats. “I’m confi-
dent that Adam Silver will make a
full investigation and take appro-
priate action quickly.”
Miami owner Micky Arison
called the comments “offensive,
appalling and very sad.”
Silver started as commissioner
Feb. 1, replacing the retired David
Stern, who once famously said that
the league decided to suspend Ron
Artest — now Metta World Peace —
for virtually an entire season by a
vote that was “unanimous.” By
that, he meant the vote was 1-0, his
being the lone voice that mattered.
On this, Silver probably needs
more of a consensus.
The players union, still without
an executive director since firing
Billy Hunter in February 2013,
asked former NBAAll-Star and cur-
rent Sacramento Mayor Kevin
Johnson to take a leading role on
the players’
K e v i n
Johnson said he
called an emer-
gency phone
meeting of
every player
represent at i ve
to the union
Saturday and
spoke with Silver before the
Warriors-Clippers game Sunday.
Calling it a “defining moment” for
the league and commissioner,
Johnson said the players trust
Silver will accommodate their
requests, which include:
—Sterling doesn’t attend any
NBAgames for the rest of the play-
offs because of the “enormous dis-
—Give a full account of past alle-
gations of discrimination by
Sterling and why the league never
sanctioned him.
—Explain the range of penalties
that the league could bring against
—Assurance the NBA and the
union will be partners in the inves-
—A decisive ruling, hopefully
before the Clippers host the
Warriors for Game 5 on Tuesday
night in Los Angeles.
“They trust that Adam Silver will
do the right thing,” Johnson said.
The league and the Clippers are
investigating, though ultimately
the decision will be perceived as
Silver’s .
“He’s got to come down hard,”
Hall of Fame player Magic
Johnson, who was referenced on
the audio recording, said Sunday on
The NBA Constitution is not
public, though it’s understood the
commissioner’s powers are broad
when it comes to dealing with mat-
ters deemed “prejudicial or detri-
mental to the best interests of bas-
ketball.” A fine, a suspension, a
demand for sensitivity training, all
that and more is surely at Silver’s
It seems probable some sort of
resolution comes before Game 5 of
the series in Los Angeles.
“We’re going home now, ”
Clippers coach Doc Rivers said
after Sunday’s 118-97 loss.
“Usually that would mean we’re
going to our safe haven. And I don’t
even know if that’s true, to be hon-
Sterling agreed to not attend
Sunday’s game, though his wife —
who has filed suit against the
woman alleged to be on the tape —
was present. There could be more
audio coming; a person in the office
of attorney Mac E. Nehoray, who
represents the woman allegedly on
the tape, said the full recording
lasts about an hour.
Some players feel for the magni-
tude of the task Silver is facing.
“What, he’s been three months
on the job? And he has to deal with
an issue like this,” Washington’s
Garrett Temple said of Silver. “It’s
unfair to him. ... It’s going to be a
difficult situation for him to take
care of, and he’s probably going to
act swiftly as he said. And he needs
to do so. It’s a very tough issue. A
lot of different sides. But it’s more
than basketball.”
The situation has elicited some
incredibly sharp comments from
players, with LeBron James and
Kobe Bryant making no effort to
hide their disgust.
“I couldn’t play for him,” Bryant
wrote on Twitter.
Added former Clippers guard
Baron Davis, also in a tweet: “Been
going on for a long time.”
Sterling has been the subject of
many past controversies but this,
particularly at playoff time and
with his own team a potential title
contender, has perhaps generated
more outcry than the others com-
bined. Even President Barack
Obama addressed the issue Sunday
at a news conference in Malaysia.
The next move will be made by
“The commissioner,” Indiana’s
Paul George said, “is going to make
the right call.”

HOUSTON — Tommy Milone said he had
his best outing of the year Sunday against
the Astros.
Milone, however, could not get out of
the seventh.
Collin McHugh allowed two hits over 8 2-3
stellar innings as Houston beat the Oakland
Athletics 5-1.
Milone (0-2) allowed four runs on five hits
with two strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. The left-
hander was just as effective as McHugh for most
of the day, retiring 12 out of 13, including nine
in a row, but he ran into trouble in the seventh.
“Tommy pitched great,” Oakland manag-
er Bob Melvin said. “Very few balls were
hit hard. He pitched as well as we’ve seen
him in awhile.”
Milone said he was using mainly the
two-seam fastball and changeup combina-
tion inside and outside to keep the Astros
“I was able to command the fastball and for
the most part keep off-speed pitches low. It def-
initely felt the best so far this year.”
McHugh (2-0) followed up his first outing
where he struck out 12 and allowed three hits in
6 2-3 innings at Seattle on Tuesday with anoth-
er dominant performance.
“He had a great cutter early on and was a little
bit harder with his stuff early on,” Melvin said
of McHugh. “Then coming back later in the
game he mixed in his curveball better and his
change-up. He really did keep us off balance.
His velocity on his fastball suggested 90-91,
but it played a little better. It was the cutters that
were getting in on our lefties that was getting
them to pop up.”
He struck out seven and walked three, allow-
ing one run in the longest outing of his career.
His previous longest outing had been seven
innings on Aug. 23, 2012, against Colorado
when he was a member of the New York Mets.
After the first, McHugh retired 23 of the next
24 batters, including 19 straight before
Brandon Moss was hit by a pitch with two outs
in the ninth. Moss stole second and came
around to score on Alberto Callaspo’s single —
McHugh’s first run allowed in 15 1-3 innings
this season.
Raul Valdes got the final out to complete the
two hitter.
“Anytime you haven’t seen a guy before it
makes it a little more difficult in the first at-bat,
but after that you should have a pretty good idea
of what it’s like,” Josh Donaldson said of not
seeing McHugh before Sunday. “He kind of
slings the ball a little bit. Stuff wise, I think his
stuff was OK, but it wasn’t anything special.”
Jed Lowrie, who singled in the first inning,
drew a walk in the third for McHugh’s lone base
runner until the ninth.
The right-hander, who Houston claimed
off waivers from Colorado during the offsea-
son, got out of trouble in the first after load-
ing the bases with two outs with a walk to
Callaspo by getting Josh Reddick to pop
out to end the inning.
Jose Altuve had two hits, including a two-run
home run in the seventh, and Jonathan Villar
also had two hits, including a two-run triple.
Villar extended the lead to 3-0 with a two-out,
two-run triple to the left centerfield gap in the
seventh, scoring Matt Dominguez and Carlos
Corporan and ending Milone’s day. Altuve
greeted Dan Otero with a two-run home run to
the Crawford Boxes in left to up the lead to 5-0.
The home run was the first that Otero had
allowed in his career. Otero had gone 63 2-3
innings before allowing the homer, which was
the longest among active players.
Dexter Fowler gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in
the third with a groundout scoring Villar, who
had doubled with one out and reached third on
an Altuve single.
NOTES: Oakland outfielder Yoenis
Cespedes was out of the lineup for the third
straight game with a strained left hamstring.

All three of Ko’s LPGAwins have come on

played for the first time.
The third-ranked Lewis finished with a 71
for her sixth runner-up finish since winning
the Women’s British Open in August. She
will head to her home state of Texas next
week looking to build on a disappointing
near miss in which she struggled all day
with her short game.
“I knew she wasn’t going away. Lydia
played great,” Lewis said. “Every time I hit
a shot in there, she answered.”
Shin, still looking for her first tour win
after her best finish this year, had a 68 to fin-
ish two shots behind.
“They were fearless,” Shin said about her
playing partners, “They just went for it.”
Playing together for the fourth straight
day, neither Ko nor Lewis hit any dazzling
shots early. Ko’s second of three bogeys
came on the 417-yard, par-4 seventh in
which her tee shot hit a tree and dropped in
the rough. Lewis’ 10-foot birdie putt on No.
9 lipped out.
Ko pulled into a first-place tie at 10 under
as they made the turn on a picture-perfect
spring day, then took the lead with a birdie
on No. 13. Lewis went in the bunker, missed
the green and two-putted for bogey to fall
two back.
“The front nine, I did everything I wanted
to do, the putts just didn’t go in,” Lewis
said. “I expected her to do exactly what she
did today. ... She hit every shot she needed
to make from 13 on in.”
There were two holes-in-one Sunday:
Jimin Kang on the 164-yard third and Dewi
Claire Schreefel with a 7-iron on the par-3,
157-yard 12th hole that earned her a
$100,000 prize from China Trust Bank.
The weather held for the final day after fog
and rain delays earlier in the tournament.
This event was the LPGA’s first in the Bay
Area since the 2010 CVS/pharmacy LPGA
Challenge at Blackhawk in Danville.
Organizers and club officials are opti-
mistic about keeping the tournament at
Lake Merced.
Donna Lowe, Lake Merced general manag-
er, hopes an announcement would come
within a month to begin planning for 2015.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has spoken
with Swinging Skirts Chairman Johnson

feedback from LPGA Commissioner

“So far, it’s just been amazing and very
positive and uplifting,” Lowe said of the

though he has also garnered interest from
the Division I program at New Mexico State.
With the headway he is making on the track,
however, he might be on the verge of purs-
ing a different path in collegiate athletics.
“I want to be a football player,” Holmes said.
“But if this track thing works out for me, maybe
I’ll get a Division I scholarship in that.”
For Holmes, the proverbial bar was set by
Douglas Oyang, CCSF’s track and field head
coach. Oyang informed Holmes — who set a
personal best this season in the 400 meter
with a 48.5 — that his time in the 400 meter
was less than a second from being in the
wheelhouse of a Division I prospect.
“That’s all I really want,” Holmes said. “I
just want a chance to compete at the next
level as an athlete. Not so much as a foot-
ball player now, but as an athlete.”
Adynamic sprinter, Holmes demonstrated
his competitive x-factor Saturday by win-
ning his two individual sprints in a com-
bined time of .05 seconds. In the 200 meter,
he held off De Anza’s Anthony Greene to
edge the second-place finisher by .04 sec-
onds. Then in a CCSF top-three sweep in the
400 meter, Holmes topped his 4x400 relay
teammate Edward Lampkin by .01 seconds.
Then in the last event of the day in the
4x400 relay, Holmes achieved something
he hasn’t done in six years with the relay
victory of him, Lampkin, Juquelle
Thompson and Adrian Perez.
“The last time I [won four events] was my
freshman year of high school, doing the
four-peat,” Holmes said. “I just thank God.
This track season has been going really
well for me. I’ve come to practice every day,
not like I did in my freshman year. And I feel
like I’m excelling in every single race.”
The younger brother of El Camino track
and field head coach Pat Holmes, Myles
Holmes has worked as an assistant coach
with the Colts’ sprinters this season.
CSM throwers shine
The lifeblood of the Bulldogs this season
has been their field competitors. The CSM
squad showcased its abilities by medaling in
all four men’s disciplines and three women’s
disciplines Saturday.
Paced by sophomore Aaron Volkman, the
CSM men captured first place in three
events. Volkman took first place in two
events, topping all shot put competitors
with a throw of 16.1 meters. He also took
first place in the hammer throw with a throw
of 50.23. CSM’s Scott Chiesa captured first
place in the javelin with a throw of 59.93.
Volkman also took third place in the discus
with a throw of 40.41, ranking behind San
Jose City College’s Keanu Foki in first at
47. 11 and Monterey Peninsula’s John
Irving in second at 40.91.
Volkman is a transfer sophomore who
took a long layoff after his freshman season
at Diablo Valley College in 2009. That sea-
son, he advanced to the state finals. This
season he is on track for a convincing
return. He has improved as an all-around
thrower this season, upping his personal
best in the shot put by more than a meter.
“I’m stronger (this season),” Volkman
said. “I actually have a coach now. I didn’t
have a coach then.”
The coach of whom Volkman spoke is
longtime CSM assistant coach Mike Lewis,
who has made his home away from home at
the CSM throwing platform for over 30
years. Aretired fire fighter after 36 years with
the San Francisco Fire Department, Lewis
takes pride in conveying the intricacies of
throwing mechanics to the myriad talents
that have competed at CSM over the decades.
Lewis raved about Volkman and Chiesa’s
performances Saturday and equated the abili-
ty of Chiesa — who is set to transfer to Cal
next season — to a current Division I talent.
“He can compete,” Lewis said. “He proba-
bly throws further than any Cal javelin
thrower over there right now. ”
The CSM women were represented exclu-
sively by sophomore Moreen Pahulu.
Running away with the discus, Pahulu took
first place in the discipline with a throw of
41.38, topping San Jose’s Kelani DeSato in
second at 38.61.
Pahulu also took second place in the ham-
mer throw with a throw of 47.1, finishing
behind San Jose’s Lindsay McKee at 51.87.
Pahulu took third place in the javelin with a
throw of 32.16, finishing behind the De
Anza tandem of first-place Gabby Whetstone
at 36.23 and second-place Katie Baxter at
32.95. Pahulu also ranked sixth in the shot
put with a throw of 10.48.
Agraduate of Mills in 2012, Pahulu is rel-
atively new to the world of track and field.
She began competing with the Vikings as a
senior. Prior to that, she said a future as an
elite thrower never occurred to her. And the
reason is quite simple.
“Honestly, I didn’t even know they had a
team,” Pahulu said.
At the recommendation of her cousins
Josh and Nicole Ukilifi, Pahulu discovered
the team at Mills and quickly excelled, tak-
ing second place as a discus thrower at the
Central Coast Section finals in Gilroy.
Laney’s freshman force
Symers-Jones electrified with one of the
best all-around individual performances
Saturday. A freshman at Laney, Symers-
Jones is a product of the famed East Oakland
Youth Development Center run by former
Laney head coach Curtis Taylor.
Ranking No. 1 in Northern California in
the 100 meter hurdles, Symers-Jones show-
cased her dominance in the event with a
time of 14.11 to top De Anza’s second-place
finisher Katie Baxter (16.16) by over two
seconds. But Symers-Jones didn’t stop
there. She took first place in four events on
the day, with a 24.58 in the 200 meter
before teaming in the 4x100 meter relay
with Jasiri Blake, Inanna Felicity and
Stantasia Dossman-Bishop for a first-place
time of 47.77.
And in the triple jump, Symers-Jones
turned in another standalone performance
with a first-place jump of 11.64 meters.
Monterey Peninsula’s Kyana Rivera took
second with a 10.89.

RENO, Nev. — John E. Williams III has
been a San Francisco 49ers fan since John
Brodie was throwing touchdown passes at
Candlestick Park in the 1970s. So he was
excited about the prospects of scoring a
ticket to make the trip to Seattle in January
to watch the rivals battle in the NFC
Championship Game.
But the Las Vegas man says in a $50
million lawsuit against the NFL that his
hopes were dashed by the league and oth-
ers he accuses of engaging in “economic
discrimination” with an illegal ticket pol-
icy limiting credit-card sales to selected
pro-Seattle markets. His lawsuit filed in
U.S. District Court in Las Vegas says it
was part of an effort to keep 49er fans
away and further promote the Seahawks’
boisterous home-field advantage at
CenturyLink Field.
“They’re always boasting up there about
their 12th player and everything else,”
Williams told The Associated Press on
Friday. “But by allowing the NFL to decide
who can or cannot attend the games, you
make it an unfair game. Seattle fixed it.”
Williams, who works as a promoter in the
entertainment industry, said that because the
NFL relies heavily on public subsidies and
money from taxpayers to build stadiums. it
should not be allowed to deny ticket sales to
individuals on the basis they are “not from
an area determined by the team — or the NFL
— to be fan of that team.”
“The practice of withholding the sale of
tickets from the public at large and allow-
ing only credit card holders limited to cer-
tain areas is a violation of the Federal
Consumer Fraud Act and/or common law, ”
according to the lawsuit filed April 15.
In the case of January’s game, the
Seahawks limited ticket sales only to cred-
it cards with addresses in the states of
Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho,
Alaska and Hawaii, as well as the Canadian
provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.
As a result, he said, he suffered “econom-
ic discrimination and violation of public
accommodation solely” because his credit
card was not issued in the restrictive states
or Canada — “which is not even part of the
United States.”
“This selected process is contrary to the
spirit of the NFL and contrary to public
accommodation,” said Williams, who is
seeking $10 million in punitive damages
on top of $40 million in real damages.
Brian McCarthy, the NFL’s vice presi-
dent of communications, said the league
has no comment on the lawsuit.
Officials for California-based
Ticketmaster, which is now part of Live
Nation Entertainment Inc., and the Seattle
Seahawks did not immediately respond to
requests for comment.
Williams said he had made up his mind
that if San Francisco beat the Carolina
Panthers in a semifinal game, he was going
to buy tickets to the NFC title game in
Seattle for himself, his roommate, a girl-
friend who lives in Canada and her daughter.
San Francisco beat Carolina 23-10, then
lost at Seattle 23-17.
“I live in Las Vegas, but I’m originally
from San Francisco. I’ve seen John Brodie
back in the day, and Joe Montana. I really
wanted to go up there to see the Niners,”
Williams said. “I think the tickets should
be sold on a first-come, first-served basis,
not based on who they want in the crowd.”
49er fan sues NFL over playoff tickets
“... by allowing the
NFL to decide who can
or cannot attend games, you
make it an unfair game.”

Kerri Walsh wins record title
FUZHOU, China — Three-time Olympic champion Kerri
Walsh won her record 47th FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour
title Sunday, teaming with April Ross to beat Brazil’s Juliana
Felisberta Silva and Maria Antonelli 21-11, 21-18 in the
Fuzhou Open final.
Walsh broke a tie with Brazil’s Larissa Franca for the
record. The American teamed with Ross in September after

with a renewed sense of confidence.
“It was a pretty major flaw, in my legs, and
I just tried to fix it,” said Vogelsong, who

Every Battery For Every Need
OBERHAUSEN, Germany — Wladimir
Klitschko toyed with Alex Leapai and
knocked him out in the fifth round to retain
his four heavyweight belts on Saturday.
Klitschko, taller with a longer reach, con-
trolled the fight at will, scoring with left jabs
and straight rights with hardly any opposi-
tion from the Samoan-born Australian.
Leapai went down when he was hit with a
left-right combination. He got up but
Klitschko put him away for good with 58
seconds left in the fifth.
“Glory to Ukraine,” Klitschko said after
his one-sided win.
Klitschko recorded his 53rd KO in 62
wins, with three defeats. Leapai dropped to
30-5, with three draws. In his 25th world
championship fight, Klitschko retained his
WBA and IBF heavyweight belts, plus the
minor WBO and IBO versions.
Leapai, the first Australian challenger in
106 years, never had a chance. The only time
he ever got close to the bigger Ukrainian was
just before getting floored in the fifth.
He took an eight count in the first round,
although he claimed to have slipped.
Leapai’s only chance was to try to get
inside, but Klitschko easily stopped him
with his effective jab. Leapai appeared to
finally hit Klitschko in the fifth but the
champion replied with a barrage and put the
Australian down. Leapai got up but was
clearly shaken, and Klitschko finished him
off with a huge right to the jaw.
“It wasn’t easy, my head was in Ukraine
and what is going on there. I hope there is
no war and people dying. I am proud of my
people,” Klitschko said.
Klitschko’s elder brother, Vitali, who has
retired from boxing to run for political
office in Kiev and who has been one of the
leading opposition figures in Ukraine, was
in Wladimir’s corner as usual. Vitali’s wife,
Natalia, sang the Ukraine national anthem
before the fight .
“It was textbook fighting by Wladimir. He
did not make a mistake,” Vitali said.
Leapai, a delivery truck driver, said it was
time to “go back to the gym.”
“I tried to take the fight to him and it did-
n’t work. I am all right, I was waiting for my
opportunity but he is a champion and a
great fighter,” Leapai said.
Thurman remains undefeated
CARSON — Keith Thurman had an unen-
viable act to follow when Lucas Matthysse
and John Molina Jr. put on a bloody 11-
round slugfest right before he stepped in the
same ring with Julio Diaz.
Although Thurman couldn’t match
Matthysse’s pyrotechnics, the rising wel-
terweight still managed a big finish.
Thurman remained unbeaten Saturday
night, stopping Diaz after three rounds
when Diaz’s corner threw in the towel due to
an injured rib.
Thurman (23-0, 21 KOs), nicknamed
“One-Time” for his one-punch knockout
power, retained his WBA interim welter-
weight title. He floored Diaz in the second
round before delivering the body shot that
led Diaz to quit on his stool on a chilly
night before the usual energized crowd at the
outdoor ring south of Los Angeles.
Although he had a short night, Thurman still
demonstrated his formidable skill and power in
his seventh fight in less than two years.
“He’s a warrior, but he just couldn’t take
the punishment,” Thurman said about Diaz.
“No one knows the power of One-Time until
they step in the ring with One-Time. We did
the work in the gym. How did you think I
was able to look this good?”
Aleft to the temple dropped Diaz, although
he stayed on his unsteady feet for a moment
before taking a knee and getting up to beat
the count. Thurman remembered the punch
that evidently injured Diaz’s rib, but thought
Diaz (40-10-1) had partially blocked it.
The main event was an anticlimax after a
tenacious performance by Matthysse (35-3,
33 KOs), who overcame two early knock-
downs and stopped Molina early in the 11t h
round of the Argentine 140-pound star’s
dynamite return to the ring. Matthysse
knocked down the bleeding Molina in each
of the final three rounds, culminating in a
decisive combination.
Molina showed he was no pushover from
the opening round, knocking back
Matthysse with a big right hand. Another
chopping right out of a clinch in the second
round sent Matthysse to his knees on just
his second career knockdown.
Klitschko KOs Leapai to retain WBA and IBF titles
Wladimir Klitschko knocked out Alex Leapai in the fifth round Saturday to retain the WBA
and IPF heavyweight belts. It was the 53rd KOin 62 career wins for the heavyweight champ.

Wizards 98, Bulls 89
WASHINGTON — Trevor Ariza
had a career playoff-high 30
points, and Washington scored
the first 14 points of the game
and barely looked back in taking
a 3-1 lead in the Eastern
Conference series.
John Wall added 15 points and
10 assists for the Wizards, who
forced 16 turnovers and committed
only six. Washington played
without forward Nene, who was
suspended for grabbing Jimmy
Butler by the head in Game 3.
The Wizards are looking to win a
playoff series for only the third
time since the 1970s. They can
finish off the Bulls in Game 5 on
Tuesday in Chicago.
Taj Gibson scored a career-
high 32 points on 13 for 16
shooting for Chicago, but his
teammates combined to go 22 for
62 from the field.
Raptors 87, Nets 79
NEWYORK — DeMar DeRozan
scored 24 points, Kyle Lowry
added 22, and Toronto evened the
first-round series at two games
Amir Johnson had 17 points for
the Raptors, who started fast, gave
up all of a 17-point lead, then shut
the Nets down over the final 5 min-
utes to snap a 13-game road losing
streak in the playoffs that went
back 13 years.
Game 5 is Wednesday night in
Toronto, with the series now guar-
anteed a return to Brooklyn on
Friday for Game 6.
Paul Pierce scored 22 points for
the Nets, who were 3 for 17 in the
fourth quarter and didn’t have a
field goal after Pierce’s basket with
6:13 left gave them a 77-73 lead.
Blazers 123, Rockets 120, OT
LaMarcus Aldridge had 29 points
and 10 rebounds and the Portland
Trail Blazers beat the Houston
Rockets 123-120 in overtime
Sunday to take a 3-1 advantage in
their first-round playoff series.
Nicolas Batum added 25 points
in the first win for the home team
in the series, which moves to
Houston for Game 5 on
Wednesday. It was the third over-
time game of the series.
The Blazers haven’t advanced
out of the first round since the
postseason in 2000
James Harden had 28 points and
Dwight Howard added 25 points
and 14 rebounds for the Rockets.

isitors to our Center for
Compassion who see a dog, cat,
or bunny they aren’t quite ready to
adopt, ask about putting the animal on
hold. Sounds reasonable; it’s what you do
when you see a pair of shoes or blouse you
really like. We explain that we typically
don’t place animals on hold. Our experi-
ence tells us that this leads to far fewer
adoptions. We used to put animals on
hold; on any given day, we’d have several
on hold, in fact. Two things would often
happen: the people who asked us to place
an animal on hold wouldn’t return and
other folks visiting and ready to adopt
would get frustrated by the number of ani-
mals with “Sorry, I’m on hold” signs on
their kennels. So, we did away with holds.
Other visitors to our adoption center ask
why we simply don’t allow them to enter
the dog dorms and kitty condos on their
own at will, even if they aren’t adopting.
Again, sounds reasonable. But, we’re not a
petting zoo. Our goal is to find good
homes for the animals in our care as quick-
ly as possible and we want the animals
available to meet with serious adopters.
We happily arrange mini play dates in our
center’s Get Acquainted Rooms or dog park
for people and families who’ve expressed
an interest in adopting. They complete our
simple one-page Adoption Profile and we
set them up with the dog, cat or iguana
who caught their eye. We spend time with
them sharing what we know about the ani-
mal, answering questions and using their
Adoption Profile as a conversation starter,
but also give them time alone to see if
they have a love connection. It’s not a
hard sell, at all, but also not a free-for-all.
We’ve found a good balance and do what
we say we’ll do: make it easy for animals
to go into good homes.

LOS ANGELES — Afemme-fueled comedy
beat a superhero blockbuster at the box
office this weekend.
After holding the top position for three
weeks, “Captain America: The Winter
Soldier” has been topped by “The Other
Woman” for the No. 1 spot.
Fox’s revenge comedy, starring Cameron
Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, debuted
with $24.7 million, while Disney-
Marvel’s “Captain America,” led by Chris
Evans, grossed $16 million in its fourth
weekend, bringing its domestic total to
$225 million.
The PG-13 rating of the Nick Cassavetes-
directed “The Other Woman” — about three
women wronged by a three-timing spouse
played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of “Game
of Thrones” — helped it draw a larger audi-
ence, said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media
analyst of box-office tracker Rentrak.
“The rating was perfect,” he said. “If you
are going for the mainstream audience who
is looking for something that has a little
bit of an edge, but not too much, you can hit
that sweet spot and draw a large audience.”
The release date couldn’t have been better,
Dergarabedian also noted. “This was the
perfect time to release this film, between the
success of ‘Captain America’ and before the
official start of the summer movie season
with ‘Spider-Man 2.’ “
Hollywood hasn’t yet seen a comedy do
especially well at the box office in 2014
since “Ride Along,” which was released in
January. Wes Anderson’s “The Grand
Budapest Hotel” exceeded expectations,
however, making over $131 million world-
But Jason Bateman’s “Bad Words” made
only $7.7 million domestically overall.
Tyler Perry’s “The Single Moms Club”
brought in just $16 million domestically.
Most of his films have grossed over $40
million domestically. Marlon Wayans’
sequel “A Haunted House 2” opened with
$8.8 million, drastically down from the
original’s $18 million debut.
“Sometimes it’s about casting,”
Dergarabedian said. “When you have
Cameron Diaz in a comedy like this, it’s
hard not to knock it out of the park. This
film is right in her wheelhouse. This is what
she does best.”
While Diaz’s last film, a thriller called
“The Counselor,” grossed only $17 million
domestically last year, her foul-mouthed
2011 comedy “Bad Teacher” earned over
$100 million stateside.
“The Other Woman” scored $12.8 million
internationally, bringing its worldwide
total to $45.3 million.
“Captain America” has now hit over $645
million globally, surpassing its 2011 orig-
inal “The First Avenger,” which earned
$370 million.

SLOVYANSK, Ukraine — Pro-
Russian militants in camouflage
fatigues and black balaclavas
paraded captive European military
observers before the media on
Sunday, hours after three captured
Ukrainian security guards were
shown bloodied, blindfolded and
stripped of their trousers and
shoes, their arms bound with
packing tape.
The provocative displays came
as the increasingly ruthless pro-
Russian insurgency in the east
turns to kidnapping as an ominous
new tactic.
Dozens of people are being held
hostage, including journalists and
pro-Ukraine activists, in
makeshift jails in Slovyansk, the
heart of the separatists’ territory,
as the pro-Russian insurgents
strengthen their control in defi-
ance of the interim government in
Kiev and its Western supporters.
Speaking in deliberate and
clipped phrases, Col. Axel
Schneider of Germany, speaking
on behalf of the observers, insist-
ed they were not NATO spies, as
claimed by the insurgents, but a
military observation mission
operating under the auspices of the
Organization of Security and
Cooperation in Europe.
“We are not fighters, we are
diplomats in uniform,” he said,
noting that his unarmed team

MANILA, Philippines — The
U.S. military will have greater
access to bases across the
Philippines under a new 10-year
agreement set to be signed
Monday in conjunction with
President Barack Obama’s visit
and seen as an effort by
Washington to counter Chinese
aggression in the region.
U.S. and Filipino officials con-
firmed the deal ahead of Obama’s
stop and portrayed it is as a central
part of his weeklong Asia swing.
The Enhanced Defense
Cooperation Agreement would
give American forces temporary
access to selected military camps
and allow them to preposition
fighter jets and ships.
It was to be signed Monday at
the main military camp in the
Philippine capital, Manila, before
Obama arrived on the last leg of a
four-country Asian tour, following
stops in Japan, South Korea and
A Philippine government
primer on the defense accord that
was seen by The Associated Press
did not indicate how many addi-
tional U.S. troops would be
deployed “on temporary and rota-
tional basis.” It said that the num-
ber would depend on the scale of
joint military activities to be held
in the camps.
The size and duration of that
presence has to be worked out with
the Philippine government, said
Evan Medeiros, senior director for
Asian affairs at the White House’s
National Security Council.
Medeiros declined to say which
specific areas in the Philippines
are being considered under the
agreement, but said the long-
shuttered U.S. facility at Subic
Bay could be one of the loca-
Two Philippine officials con-
firmed the agreement to the AP
before the White House
announcement. The officials
spoke on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorized
to discuss details of the pact
before it was signed.
The defense accord would help
the allies achieve different goals.
With its anemic military, the
Philippines has struggled to bol-
ster its territorial defense amid
China’s increasingly assertive
behavior in the disputed South
China Sea.
Manila’s effort has dovetailed
with Washi ngt on’s intention to
pivot away from years of heavy
mi l i t ary engagement i n t he
Middle East to Asia, partly as a
counterweight to China’s ris-
ing clout.
“The Philippines’ immediate
and urgent motivation is to
strengthen itself and look for a
security shield with its pitiful
military,” Manila-based political
analyst Ramon Casiple said. “The
U.S. is looking for a re-entry to
Asia, where its superpower status
has been put in doubt.”
The convergence would work
to deter China’s increasingly
assertive stance in disputed terri-
tories, Casiple said. But it could
further antagonize Beijing,
which sees such tactical alliance
as a U.S. strategy to contain its
rise, and encourage China to
intensify its massive military
buildup, he said.
U.S., Philippines reach deal on military accord
Monday • April 28, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
like to be the guy who makes the differ-
Dalton owns a Redwood City-based
diesel delivery service and has investigate
experience from time in the U.S. Army
military police. He’s had an interest in
holding an elected position and settled on
coroner as the place to make his inroad.
Dalton isn’t sure if the 15-person office
is adequately staffed but believes employ-
ee retention is important and questions
why there isn’t more longevity. Foucrault
said there has been some departures due to
worker’s compensation-related incidents
but that nobody has left because they dis-
liked the working environment. He said
one pathologist in the office has a tenure
greater than 40 years and that a front
office employee has been with the office
more than 30 years.
If elected, Dalton said continuing edu-
cation for the staff and crime scene safety
are among his priorities. He said a reli-
able source informed him the Coroner’s
Office received a federal grant for self-
contained breathing apparatus that remain
unused because the associated training
hasn’t happened. If a body is located in a
methamphetamine lab, for instance,
Dalton asked how will removers be able to
do their job safely?
Foucrault said the office received the
gear about four years ago and some of the
current investigators were trained with the
Daly City Fire Department but that staff
turnover has left some new workers still
in need. He is currently looking for a
provider in closer proximity.
Dalton is also interested in raising rev-
enue outside of taxes which is where he
said his sales and marketing background
will prove helpful. One idea is possibly
looking at contracting services with
smaller counties. Dalton said his atten-
tion to detail is another personal attribute
he would bring to the office.
Foucrault said he manages his $3 mil-
lion budget with an eye toward savings
and was recognized by the county manag-
er two years ago for his efforts which
included consolidating payroll with the
county Human Resources Department and
bringing a $500,000 renovation of the
morgue under budget.
While the coroner isn’t as public as
other elected positions, Foucrault found
himself and the office in the limelight
several times in his last term due to fatal-
ities that garnered national, and even
international, attention — the small
plane crash in East Palo Alto that killed
Tesla employees, the San Bruno gasline
explosion and fire, the Hayward-San
Mateo Bridge limousine fire and the
Asiana Airlines crash at San Francisco
International Airport.
Foucrault’s conclusion that a teenage
passenger survived the flight only to be
run over by a San Francisco fire engine
was challenged by the city but he consult-
ed with his forensic pathologist several
times and held his ground with what he
said was an “unpopular truth.” After the
crash, Foucrault said he stationed an
investigator full time at the family center
to act as a liaison between the victims’
families and his office — a commitment
he said was praised by the National
Transportation Safety Board.
Looking forward, Foucrault said he
wants to expand Save-A-Life in a modified
fashion into sixth-grade classrooms and
champion technology such as a smart-
phone fingerprint application that lets
investigators make body identifications
in the field.
A big item on his wish list is moving
the coroner’s administrative office from
the crime lab on Tower Road in San Mateo
where it currently leases space to the
county government center in Redwood
City. The current site has no public trans-
portation and people seeking death cer-
tificates find themselves going to Tower
Road first and then another trip to the
county clerk/recorder’s office in Redwood
“It’s not beneficial to anyone to be out
there,” he said.
County Manager John Maltbie is
amenable to the idea which will put the
office near other county departments and
more accessible.
The coroner’s job also includes promot-
ing the office and letting the public know
how it really operates as opposed to what
they might see on TV, he said.
“You don’t just pick the body up and
leave,” he said.

take a first swipe at the adjusted numbers
and give staff some idea of what they want
included in the document.
While city staff are recommending a list
of new and increased spending, some
councilmembers aren’t so sure that’s the
best route.
“The bottom line with the 9 percent
increase is I am looking to hold the line at
operational expenses because the majori-
ty of that is payroll and I don’t think we
should be going crazy on giving people
raises,” Councilman Matt Grocott said.
Grocott also doesn’t favor spending
$50,000 on a climate action plan or
$30,000 for an economic development
plan. Grocott said he doesn’t want to be
negative but prior city efforts to drive
business haven’t been any more remark-
able than market forces.
On Monday, Grocott said he plans to
ask how much of the 3 percent increase in
operations is based on current labor
agreements and talk about the city’s
unfunded capital improvement projects.
Councilman Cameron Johnson is also
interested in talking about putting some
money away for future bleak days.
“I want to make sure we are prepared for
the recession when it does hit and make
sure we are making thoughtful fiscally
responsible policies when we’re in good
times,” Johnson said.
Johnson was still reviewing the agenda
materials on Friday so couldn’t talk
details but broadly said he is really
pleased with the city’s improving situa-
tion. On Monday, he wants to make sure
the council discusses pocketing funds and
is on track with its new performance-
based budgeting implementation.
“That helps staff become a learning
organization, knowing which policies are
successful, helps us invest more in things
that are working and the public knows
where their tax dollars are being spent,”
Johnson said.
Staff recommended budget increases
include turning the part-time volunteer
coordinator into a full-time community
relations coordinator, funding the
Chamber of Commerce more for its home
improvement marketplace, economic
development marketing programs, after-
school program supplies and both the
Goblin Walk and Night of Holiday Lights.
The city’s total general fund revenue for
2013-14 is budgeted at $30,134,600, an
increase of 9 percent from the adopted
budget. It includes a 6 percent hike in
business registration, a 30 percent jump
in license and permits, 5 percent increase
in property tax and 15 percent improve-
ment in sales tax.

Customers can drop off batteries, CDs,

“Because I have a business background,
I don’t want to treat this (the materials) as

Items are given tracking numbers.
About 70 percent of items that enter the
20,000-square-foot facility in
Burlingame are brought to centers in
Stockton and Sacramento where they are
dismantled and crushed. Metals are sepa-

Customers can also sell their old elec-

The company also has a museum of old
electronics in the front room of the
Burlingame office. Kao hopes to eventu-
ally start a larger museum with electron-
ics of historical vintage value.
“I’m an entrepreneur interested in solv-
ing problems,” he said. “It’s almost crim-
inal to think of electronics not being

to find a solution.”

care and many times the care of these
cows was relegated to the children. The
main chore that the family had to
undertake was the milking of the cow
in the morning and in the evening. The
adult usually took this chore seriously
but, as children are prone to do, they
found a way to kill this unpleasant task
with games. As soon as the cow was
put in its stall and the process of milk-
ing was begun, the cats would amble
into the stall and set down behind or
beside the cow. Within a short time,
the milker would be squirting the cat
with milk and the cat responded by
licking the milk from his fur and get-
ting his breakfast. Much of the milk
was drunk by the family, some was
made into butter and the surplus was
given to any pigs the farmer had. The
milk was mixed with different grains,
which were called “slop,” that was
very nutritious for the pigs. The small-
time farmer were family operations
and the mainstay of society for hun-
dreds of years.
The first cows that the Spanish
brought to California were not great
milk producers so the Spanish ate the
cattle and mainly utilized their hides.
The trip of the cattle from Tubac, Ariz.
in the 1770s could only have been sur-
vived by rugged cattle that could feed
on almost anything they ate. Many of
these cattle died, but the ones that did
survive were the primary stock that
developed the herds for the early gen-
eration of settlers in California. Here
the cattle thrived on the open grass
that developed on the Bay side of the
Peninsula. Before many years, the cat-
tle outnumbered the people by great
numbers as they reproduced phenome-
nally well in the brush and flat areas
from San Bruno Mountain to San Jose.
The main food source for the Spanish
and much of their social activities
revolve around the raising and eating
of cattle. Their rodeos became famous
as social events on the ranchos and the
cow the main character that provided
excitement along with the dances and
feast. When the Americans traveled by
the Ranchos on El Camino Real they
were informed that they could slaugh-
ter and eat the cattle, but they must
leave the hide for the Mexicans. The
hide was more valuable than the meat
and they became known as the
“Spanish dollar” as they were worth
one dollar American money. The meat
was so abundant that, after slaughter-
ing cattle, the meat was boiled down in
huge kettles and the tallow contained
in the meat could be sold and made into
candles. From the hides they made
their chairs, beds, blankets, hats,
clothes, saddles, etc. The cattle were
the mainstay of the Spanish Empire in
California, and their main industry.
When the Americans arrived in
California, they had a culture of drink-
ing milk and eating many of the cow’s
products. However, the Spanish cattle
fell short in the American eyes and
they began importing them from the
East in great numbers. The first eastern
cattle were driven by their owners
across the United States. The trip was
long and arduous and only the fittest
survived the long and dangerous trip.
The Spanish were spread out
throughout California, in small groups
except for in San Jose and Los
Angeles. When the Americans immi-
grated in the late 1840s, they concen-
trated mainly in San Francisco and
developed a large metropolis of con-
sumers. The conditions were ideal for
the people who bought large tracts of
land to acquire large numbers of milk-
ing cows to feed on the abundant grass
that abounded on the Peninsula,
because they knew they could sell the
milk products.

Fredricks appears in the Monday edi-
tion of the Daily Journal.

of the school emphasizes “knowl-
edge in action and extreme personal-
ization.” Design Tech High School’s
leadership wanted it to be housed at
Burlingame High School, but dis-
trict officials said there isn’t space
at the growing Burlingame school.
One parent expressed concerns
about traffic, the charter school
being on a different schedule, over-
crowding and how students will
interact. Parent David Chow sug-
gested the district do a traffic study
or Environmental Impact Report to
determine how the additional stu-
dents will affect Mills. The school
has about 1,300 students.
“You mentioned the school had a
capacity for 1,400, but in reality the
school today is not the same school
it was before when it had that many
students,” Chow said. “I’ve watched
kids dodge cars. I don’t want to put
kids’ lives on the line because you
want to do this. Everything around
us has changed with BART. … It’s
shortsighted you made the decision
without telling anyone.”
Another parent, Bernadette
Mantler, asked if the Sheriff’s Office
would be involved in helping with
additional traffic issues with a new
school, as there are already prob-
lems with people driving too fast.
District officials at the meeting
told the parents they empathize with
their concerns, which are actually
concerns of their own.
“We’re very enthusiastic about the
school,” said Superintendent Scott
Laurence. “The placement is hard.
We’ve always thought choice for our
kids is a good thing. I share your
concerns. … We know the traffic is
bad, but we know we can handle it.”
When one parent asked why the
district was jumping through hoops
to get the charter placed, Laurence
explained the district has no choice,
as Proposition 39, passed by
California voters in 2000, requires
districts to make “reasonably equiv-
alent” facilities available to char-
In terms of concerns over the
schools being on different schedules
leading to students roaming around
campus at different times, Principal
Paul Belzer said he will work closely
with the other school’s administra-
tion to have similar expectations for
“It will be a separate program,” he
said. “It will remain separate and it
won’t have any impact on actual
class size.”
Adding 150 students to the campus
is a pretty big deal though, said Chow.
“This decision was made without
any kind of notification to the
administrators or parents,” he said.
“Charter schools aren’t all bad,
we’re more concerned with street
safety. … It was kind of a rushed
Millbrae city officials say they
were just notified about the new
school as well.
“We will work with the school dis-
trict,” said Mayor Wayne Lee. “We
do have concerns and we would have
liked more warning.”
In July 2013, the school focused
on entrepreneurship received
$100,000 in planning grant funding
from Next Generation Learning
Challenges for help with costs asso-
ciated with opening the new high
school. In its preliminary proposal,
the district declined to charge a per-
square-foot pro rata share of facili-
ties costs for this facility, and
instead offered to provide the facili-
ties substantially rent free to instead
recoup the cost of supervisorial
oversight, not to exceed 3 percent of
the revenue of the charter school
pursuant to section 47613(b) of the
California Education Code.

MONDAY, APRIL 28, 2014
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Your unselfish
nature is likely to damage your health if you’re not
careful. You must find a way to turn down some of
the demands people make, or your stress level will
continue to mount.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Take your time and don’t
be coerced into making a quick decision until you are
sure that you have a true picture of the situation. Some
valuable information is probably being withheld.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Develop a partnership
with someone you want to work alongside. Participate
in a worthy cause. You are likely to meet someone who
can influence your future. Don’t be afraid to speak up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Less talk and more action
will help you avoid trouble. Expect uncertainty in the
workplace. Resist the urge to add to your current
workload, or you’ll risk blowing your deadline.

develop. Increased knowledge and a chance to travel
will provide a wider range of possibilities. Accept an
invitation that comes your way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Be diligent regarding your
diet and exercise regimens. You need to stay healthy
to keep up with your daily demands. Start saving and
check out an affordable investment option.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — People you have
helped in the past will be glad to return the favor.
Love and romance are in the air. Plan to enjoy a day of
togetherness with someone special.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-DEC. 21) — Plan your career
path strategically, and push to reach your goals. You
will gain support if you share your enthusiasm with a
group of productive individuals.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Do what you enjoy
the most today. Whether you visit a spa or stay at
home, you deserve a little relaxation. Fill your calendar
with self-indulgences.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Uncertainty is likely to
plague your personal life. You can improve the situation
if you share your thoughts and make suggestions.
Don’t let someone ruin your day.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Act quickly so
that you’ll be able to take advantage of a new
opportunity. Get together with a friend for some light
entertainment. Romance is highlighted.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Make amends with
someone you may have let down or disappointed.
Your emotions will be out of control. Be honest and
admit your mistakes.

Sciatica and herniated discs are often misunderstood.
They can cause pain and numbness intheback,neck,legs,andfeet.Thispainaffect-
severything that you do, from work to play, and ultimately your quality of life. We are
here to tell you that there is hope. We have the technology and experience to help
you fi nd relief from sciatica and back pain. At Crossroads Health Center, we have
helped thousands of pain sufferers just like you. We offer only the most advanced
non-surgical treatments.
Is Surgery the Answer?
It is true that surgery may be the answer for certain types of back injuries. When
considering your options, ask yourself this question… If there is a solution to back
pain that doesn’t require surgery, is it worth exploring?
Before you consider surgery consider these points

Ihe 8oIutioo. Ihe 6rossroads Method
The Crossroads Method is a proven, comprehensive treatment program which
includes computerized true disc decompression, cold laser therapy, and exercise
rehabilitation to promote long term spinal
health. Spinal decompression is considered
by many doctors to be the most advanced and
successful noninvasive treatment of erious
back, neck, leg or arm pain.
The Crossroads method allows for a much
higher success rate by increasing hydration
and restoring health to your discs. This results
in a more effective and lasting solution to your
pain. There are no side effects and no recov-
ery time is required. This gentle and relaxing
treatment has proven to be effective… even
when drugs, epidurals, traditional chiropractic,
physical therapy and surgery have failed…

Many back pain conditions that we see can be helped by our state of the art decom-
pression tables and our treatment programs. Decompression relieves pressure
that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a
result of drawing the leaking gel of a herniated disc back into place. Decompression
achieves this by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative
intra-discal pressure. This essentially creates a vacuum which draws the bulging
and herniated disc material back into the disc space, relieving pressure on painful
nerves. This process of non-surgical decompression combined with a customized
rehabilitation program allow the body to heal itself naturally.
Who is a 6aodidate Ior the 6rossroads Method
Our spinal decompression system has been found to relieve the pain associated
with disc degeneration, hemiated and bulging discs, facet syndrome, and sciatica.
Spinal decompression is a great option because back surgery is so risky.
Why 6rossroads heaIth 6eoter
Dr. Thomas Ferrigno D.C and his team have vast experience in treating patients
suffering from severe disc disease. Dr. Ferrigno has performed over 25,000 decom-
pression treatments and is currently only 1 of 2 doctors in the state of California who
is University Certified in Spinal Decompression Therapy. Dr. Ferrigno is also part of
the Disc Centers of America Team who are a national group of doctors that have
gone through extensive training that follow the protocols set up by The International
Medical Advisory Board on Spinal Decompression, and follow the protocols set for-
ward by Dr. Norman Shealy the Honorary Chairman, former Harvard professor, and
probably the most published doctor in the world on spinal decompression therapy.

VATICAN CITY — Two 20th-
century popes who changed the
course of the Catholic Church
became saints Sunday as Pope
Francis honored John XXIII and
John Paul II in a delicate balanc-
ing act aimed at bringing togeth-
er the conservative and progres-
sive wings of the church.
As if to drive the message of
unity home, Francis invited
retired Pope Benedict XVI to join
him on the altar of St. Peter’s
Square, the first time a reigning
and retired pope have celebrated
Mass together in public in the
2,000-year history of the church.
An estimated 800,000 people
— many of them from John
Paul’s native Poland — filled St.
Peter’s, the streets around it and
bridges over the Tiber River, a
huge turnout but only half the
size of the crowd that came out
for John Paul’s 2011 beatifica-
t i on.
John reigned from 1958-1963
and is a hero to liberal Catholics
for having convened the Second
Vatican Council. The meetings
brought the church into the mod-
ern era by allowing Mass to be
celebrated in local languages
rather than Latin and encouraged
greater dialogue with people of
other faiths, particularly Jews.
During his globe-trotting,
quarter-century papacy, John
Paul II helped topple communism
and invigorated a new generation
of Catholics, while his defense
of core church teaching on abor-
tion, marriage and other hot-but-
ton issues heartened conserva-
tives after the turbulent 1960s.
Benedict was one of John
Paul’s closest confidantes and
went on to preside over a deeply
tradition-minded eight-year
papacy. His successor Francis
seems a pope much more inspired
by the pastoral, simple style of
the “good pope” John.
Yet Francis offered each new
saint heartfelt praise in his hom-
i l y, saying John had allowed
himself to be led by God to call
the council, and hailing John
Paul’s focus on the family. It’s an
issue that Francis has asked the
church as a whole to take up for
discussion with a two-year debate
starting this fall.
“They were priests, bishops
and popes of the 20th century, ”
Francis said. “They lived
through the tragic events of that
century, but they were not over-
whelmed by them.”
Benedict put John Paul on the
fast-track for possible sainthood
just weeks after his 2005 death,
responding to the chants of
“Santo Subito!” or “Sainthood
Now!” that erupted during his
funeral Mass. John Paul’s canon-
ization is now the fastest in
modern times.
John’s sainthood run, on the
other hand, languished after his
2000 beatification. Rather than
let John Paul have the limelight
with a canonization on his own
— emboldening many in the con-
servative wing of the church —
Francis decided to pair him up
with John. To do so, Francis
tweaked the Vatican’s own saint-
making rules, deciding that John
could be made a saint alongside
John Paul without the necessary
second miracle usually required.
Francis sounded a note of continu-
ity in his homily, praising John for
having called the council and John
Paul for helping implement it.
“John XXIII and John Paul II
cooperated with the Holy Spirit
in renewing and updating the
church in keeping with her pris-
tine features, those features
which the saints have given her
throughout the centuries,”
Francis said.
During the ceremony, Francis
took a deep breath and paused for
a moment before reciting the
saint-making formula in Latin, as
if moved by the history he was
about to make in canonizing two
popes at once.
As soon as he did so, applause
broke out from a crowd in St.
Peter’s and beyond.
“This is such a historic
moment,” marveled the Rev.
Victor Perez, who brought a
group of students from the John
Paul High School in Houston,
Texas and waited for nearly 12
hours to get near St. Peter’s .
“John Paul was so impactful on
the church. He completed the
work of Vatican II. Today honors
the last 50 years of what God has
done in the church.”
In John Paul’s native Poland,
bells rang out as soon as Francis
pronounced the two men saints.
