Pulling a guest speaker from
Notre Dame High School in
Belmont has left former and cur-
rent students feeling upset, while
the administration says the deci-
sion was made to protect the
school’s relationship with the gay
activist who an online publica-
tion had criticized for working
with the Catholic school.
It all started when “California
Catholic Daily” posted an item
taking issue with Catholic
schools that host Gregg Cassin, a
guest speaker of the school who
lectured for the Women in
Relationships course for the jun-
ior class yearly for more than 20
years about self-acceptance. The
website took issue with Cassin’s
work outside the classroom, as an
activist for LGBT rights.
Cassin was scheduled to talk to
the four religious studies classes
in March but, because he has a new
work schedule, could only come
for one of two days scheduled. The
online post came out between
Cassin’s appearance in March and
this week. Over Easter break,
Notre Dame teacher Barbara
Sequeira arranged for Cassin to
come back to the school Tuesday
to make up for the missed day,
which Head of School Maryann
Osmond didn’t find out about until
Monday. Given the publicity, she
felt the best thing to do for the
present time was to hold off on
having him back again until next
year while things settled down.
“I made the decision on Monday
that it would best to wait for
things to die down with the whole
controversy,” said Osmond, who

District officials are trying to
transform an elementary school in
San Mateo by establishing a new
vision, identity and even propos-
ing a name change.
In the fall of 2013, the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District hired on Singer
Associates to help develop a new
focus for the K-5 school, along
with new branding. The consultant
has recommended focusing on lit-
eracy and digital arts. Possible
new names for the school include
Poplar Elementary and LEAD
Elementary. So far, the district has
spent $33,560.25 for Singer’s
help on the project, according to
the district.
“They’re not attracting kids by
and large by its current magnet
theme,” said Superintendent
Cynthia Simms.
The school has even garnered
the nickname “Horrible Horrall.”
Its name being similar to Laurel
Elementary and has been confus-
ing when police are called out to
facilities or buses are requested for
pickups, said Principal Pattie

be renamed

Downtown San Mateo’s 231
Ellsworth shuts its doors after 28
years of fine dining and service.
In February, 231 Ellsworth was
still considering plans to remodel
and revise the formal dining room
into a more modern and open space
but Jeff Barnes, an agent from
Intero Realty representing the
owners, said it would have been a
substantial investment.
Barnes said the owners decided
that it was time to close the busi-
ness, sell the property and get on
with the next chapter of their
The restaurant was known for its
waiters in white-collared shirts
and black suits serving sophisti-
cated dishes such as Osetra caviar
and quail egg, venison loin and
oxtail ravioli. However, it strug-
gled to compete with a crop of new
restaurants that caters to an emerg-
ing clientele.
“If you just take a walk in down-
town San Mateo you can see it has
changed a lot and restaurants need
to appeal to more a younger
crowd,” Barnes said.
Astaria, another downtown San
Mateo restaurant, recently went
through a transformation and re-
emerged as Three Restaurant and
Bar, a chic space with an open
kitchen and menus on the wall
offering items like Brie Phyllo
Poppers and Braised Oregon cod.
Like Astaria, 31st Union, The
Attic and other San Mateo restau-
rants are moving with the trend of
a less formal atmosphere.
Ristorante Cappellini, another
upscale restaurant, closed in
During the last months leading
up to the closure, 231 Ellsworth
made an effort to revamp the menu
and promote Happy Hour by offer-
ing bar bites and drinks specials.

brated Mother’s Day and other
special occasions at 231
Ellsworth, was disappointed in the

SAN JOSE — California Congressman
Eric Swalwell says a teen stowaway who flew
to Hawaii in a jet wheel well should never
have been able to climb the San Jose
International Airport fence undetected.
Swalwell said Friday he’s asking the
Transportation Security Administration to
test perimeter alert systems at several U.S.
airports to see if technology can help pre-
vent future breaches.
Yahya Abdi of Santa Clara, California,
survived the April 20 trip
to Hawaii.
After touring San Jose
airport’s perimeter,
Swalwell said no video
has surfaced confirming
the teen’s claim he
climbed the fence, nor are
there signs of where he
went over.
Swalwell says airport
officials told him they already are increasing
video surveillance.

Officials say California
in for hot, dry summer
The final snow survey of the year has
made it clear that California is in for a
long and hot summer after a near-record
dry winter, Department of Water
Resources officials announced this week.
The third and final manual and elec-
tronic readings conducted this year
measured water levels in the state’s
snowpack, which normally provides a
third of the water for the state’s farm and
cities, at 18 percent of the year-to-date
average, according to the department.
Officials said electronic readings
show water content in the northern
Sierra snowpack is at seven percent of
the average level and readings for the
central and southern Sierra were at 24
and 18 percent of normal levels.
The low snowpack levels, coupled
with the end of the wet season, likely
means late-season storms will not sig-
nificantly dampen the effects of a three-
year drought currently affecting farms
and communities, according to the

Red panda arrives at
San Francisco Zoo
SAN FRANCISCO — A 10-month-old red panda is the
newest resident of the San Francisco Zoo.
Zoo spokeswoman Abigail Tuller said the small male panda
native to the eastern Himalayas and western China arrived

Roberta Gail Girdler
Our very loved and special Mother, Grandmother, and Great-
Grandmother, Roberta Girdler, went to be with our Lord on April
27, 2014, after a long illness.
Roberta was born in San Francisco, CA to parents Arnold
and Bernice Hutto on July 7, 1928. She lived the majority of her
life in California, raising her children in the San Francisco Bay
area wither husband Fred. They moved to Vacaville in 1990 to be
closer to their daughters, Dorothy and DeeDee.
She loved spending time with family and friends. She was a
great cook and generous hostess who welcomed all into her home and to her table. She loved
sharing with all the special people in her life who were touched by her loving heart.
One of her favorite things to do on a Friday night was to ride her 4-trax to Joyce and Marv’s
barn, bringing a meal for all that had gathered. Joyce was the “Adopted” daughter.
After her husband passed in 2000 she moved to Anacortes, WA to be closer to son Mark
and family. Roberta is survived by son Mark and wife Jean Girdler of Anacortes, WA, daughter
Dorothy and husband Rick Gourley of Yreka, CA, and daughter DeeDee and husband Kim
McCall of Anacortes, WA. She also leaves behind grandchildren and great-grandchildren who
affectionately called her “Candygram.”
Roberta lived a long and full life. She was cherished and loved by many. We will miss her
sweet spirit and loving smile.
The family suggests donations be made in Roberta’s name to Hospice of the Northwest in
Mount Vernon, WA.
Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, WA
and the San Juan Islands. To share memories of Roberta please sign the online guest register

Court-appointed doctors are divided on
whether a 22-year-old transient accused of
trying to rape a woman crossing the San
Mateo Caltrain Station’s underground
stairs on a Sunday night last fall is men-
tally fit to stand trial on several felonies.
With one doctor squarely on each side of
the decision, a judge appointed a third tie-
breaker to determine if Fernando
Chamale-Boch is able to aid his defense
attorney against charges of kidnapping
with the intent to rape, assault with the
intent to rape, false imprisonment and
San Mateo police arrested Chamale-
Boch Oct. 20 after responding to a
woman’s 911 call for help. The woman
said she spotted a man later identified as
Chamale-Boch standing in a dark hallway
as she approached the stairwell about 7
p.m. that night and turned to go but was
grabbed. The suspect
covered her mouth as she
screamed, and pulled her
six feet down the stairs
as she punched and
scratched at his face.
After she fought herself
free, she called police
who found him nearby
later that night with
scratches on his face.
Chamale-Boch has pleaded not guilty to
the charges but his defense attorney
raised a doubt about his competency
before a preliminary hearing.
Competency is a person’s ability to aid
in his or her own defense unlike sanity
which is a mental state at the time of an
alleged crime. If Chamale-Boch is deemed
incompetent, he will be committed to a
state mental facility for treatment.
He remains in custody on $2 million

SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities in San
Francisco say four homes were damaged and
three people were hospitalized following an
early morning three-alarm fire.
The fire began shortly after 6:30 a.m.
Friday in the city’s Oceanview neighbor-
hood near the Daly City border. Fire Chief
Joanne Hayes-White says the roughly 90
firefighters called in to battle the blaze had
to contend with heavy smoke and fog.
The fire spread quickly because there was no
space between the houses. Hayes-White says
a man and a woman suffered smoke inhalation
and a firefighter experiencing chest pains
were taken to a hospital as a precaution.
The American Red Cross says 21 adults
and a child were displaced as a result of the

Senators warn of safety risks at closed reactors
LOS ANGELES — Five U.S. senators on Friday warned
that federal regulators need to keep more emergency and
security regulations in place at shuttered nuclear power
plants that store tons of spent radioactive fuel.
In a letter to Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman
Allison Macfarlane, the senators said the agency that over-
sees the nation’s commercial nuclear industry has been free-
ing closed plants from certain emergency and security safe-
guards, even though the spent fuel on site remains danger-
ous for years to come.
The letter was sent by Sens. Barbara Boxer of California,
Edward Markey of Massachusetts, Patrick Leahy of Vermont
and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, all Democrats, and
independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
They wrote that studies, including by the NRC, have con-
cluded that “draining a spent nuclear fuel pool can lead to
fires, large radioactive releases and widespread contamina-
The “NRC’s analysis has even concluded that the health
and economic impacts of a spent fuel fire could equal those
caused by an accident at an operating reactor,” the letter
As wildfire fear rises, U.S. tanker fleet incomplete
LOS ANGELES — With a vast swath of the West primed for
wildfires, federal foresters are preparing for the worst with a
budget that might run dry and a fleet of air tankers that in
some cases aren’t ready for takeoff.
Acombination of extended drought, warming weather and
an abundance of withered trees and grasses have created ideal
conditions for fire — more than 22 million acres were black-
ened by wildfires from 2011-2013, primarily across the
“It looks like it’s going to be a serious enough season to
where we run out of money again,” Tom Harbour, director of
fire and aviation management for the U.S. Forest Service,
warned in an interview with the Associated Press.
“I’m really concerned, there is no question,” Harbour said.
“I think we are going to have a lot of fire.”
The agency is doing what it can to prepare for wildfire sea-
son by burning sections of forest in high-risk areas to
remove dead or dry vegetation that could fuel a fire. In anoth-
er step, crews will launch a major forest-thinning project on
Lake Tahoe’s north shore.
Drones a daily sight in Yosemite
The bald eagle, the yellow warbler and the peregrine fal-
con have been joined in the skies above Yosemite National
Park by a noisy newcomer: the drone.
The National Park Service issued a statement Friday
reminding visitors that federal regulations actually ban the
use of unmanned aircraft within the park’s boundaries.
Yet that hasn’t stopped drone sightings from becoming a
nearly daily occurrence in one of the nation’s most venerat-
ed national parks in recent years, said Scott Gediman, a park
ranger for nearly two decades.

SLOVYANSK, Ukraine — Ukraine
launched an offensive against sepa-
ratist forces for control of a besieged
eastern city Friday, while clashes
between pro- and anti-government
activists in the previously calm
southern port of Odessa led to a fire
that police said killed 31 people.
The first serious offensive by the
government in Kiev and the dozens of
deaths in Odessa sharply escalated the
crisis that has led to the worst ten-
sions between Russia and the West
since the Cold war. The Kremlin said
the battle for the separatist-held city
of Slovyansk effectively destroyed
the Geneva pact aimed at cooling the
unrest in the deeply divided country.
Oleksandr Turchynov, Ukraine’s
acting president, said many insur-
gents were killed or wounded in the
eastern offensive that also underlined
the military’s vulnerability. The mili-
tary action came two days after Kiev
said it had lost control of eastern
Both sides said two Ukrainian heli-
copters were shot down by the insur-
gents near Slovyansk, killing two
crew members, while authorities said
another seven people also died: three
separatist gunmen, two soldiers and
two civilians.
By nightfall, Ukrainian troops and
armored personnel carriers blocked
all major roads into Slovyansk, and
the central part of the city remained in
the hands of pro-Russia gunmen,
according to Associated Press journal-
ists inside. Most shops were closed,
and the few that were open were
crowded with customers stocking up
on supplies.
Sporadic gunfire was heard in
Slovyansk’s downtown late Friday,
while Russian news reports said there
were armed clashes in the nearby town
of Kramatorsk.

WASHINGTON — President Barack
Obama and German Chancellor Angela
Merkel threatened tough sanctions
Friday on broad swaths of Russia’s
economy if Moscow disrupts
Ukraine’s May 25 presidential elec-
tions, putting President Vladimir Putin
on notice for harsher penalties even if
he stops short of a full invasion.
Standing side by side in the White
House Rose Garden, Obama and
Merkel sought to
bat down the notion
of any discord
between the U.S and
European approach-
es to dissuading
Putin from interfer-
ing in Ukraine.
Obama said the U.S.
and Europe have
shown “remarkable
unity” in their response so far, though
he acknowledged that some European
countries are vulnerable to Russian
retaliation for sanc-
tions and said those
concerns must be
taken into account.
“The next step is
going to be a
broader-based sec-
t oral sanct i ons
regime,” Obama
declared, referring
to entire segments
of Russia’s economy, such as energy
or arms.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Alandslide trig-
gered by heavy rain buried large sections of
a remote northeastern Afghan village on
Friday, killing at least 350 people and
leaving more than 2,000 missing.
Villagers looked on helplessly and the
governor appealed for shovels to help dig
through the mass of mud that flattened
every home in its path.
The mountainous area in Badakhshan
province has experienced days of heavy
rain and flooding, and the side of a cliff col-
lapsed onto the village of Hobo Barik
around midday. Landslides and avalanches
are frequent in Afghanistan, but Friday’s
was one of the deadliest.
Gov. Shah Waliullah Adeeb said more
than 2,000 people were missing after the
landslide buried some 300 homes — about a
third of all the houses in the area.
At least 350 people were confirmed dead,
according to Ari Gaitanis, a spokesman
from the United Nations Assistance
Mission in Afghanistan. He said the U.N.
was working with authorities on the ground
to rescue people still trapped.
The governor said rescue crews were
working but didn’t have enough equipment.
“It’s physically impossible right now, ”
Adeeb said. “We don’t have enough shov-
els; we need more machinery. ”
Badakhshan provincial police chief,
Maj. Gen. Faziluddin Hayar said rescuers
had pulled seven survivors and three bodies
from the mounds of mud and earth but held
out little hope that more survivors would be
“Now we can only help the displaced peo-
ple. Those trapped under the landslide and
who have lost lives, it is impossible to do
anything for them,” Hayar said.
Video footage of the scene showed a large
section of the mountain collapsed, sending
mud and earth tumbling onto the village
The landslide was likely caused by heavy
rain, said Abdullah Homayun Dehqan, the
province’s director for National Disaster
Department. He said floods last week in
different districts of the province killed
four people and eight more were still miss-
i ng.
Landslides occur frequently in the
province, but they generally happen in
remote areas and produce far fewer casual-
ties, said Mohammad Usman Abu Zar from
the Meteorology Department of
Badakhshan province.
Authorities evacuated a nearby village
over concerns about further landslides, the
governor said. Dehqan said blankets and
tents had been sent and about 400 people
from nearby villages had gathered to help
with the rescue effort.
Hayar said the landslide happened about 1
p.m. Friday, a day of worship in
Afghanistan when many families would
have been at home instead of at work.
President Barack Obama, speaking at a
White House news conference with German
Chancellor Angela Merkel, expressed his
sympathy for the Afghan people.
“Just as the United States has stood with
the people of Afghanistan through a diffi-
cult decade, we stand ready to help our
Afghan partners as they respond to this dis-
aster, for even as our war there comes to an
end this year, our commitment to
Afghanistan and its people will endure,” he
Badakhshan province, nestled in the
Hindu Kush and Pamir mountain ranges and
bordering China, is one of the most remote
in the country. The area has seen few
attacks from insurgents following the
2001 U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan.

BELFAST, Northern Ireland — Northern
Ireland police were granted an extra 48 hours
Friday to interrogate Sinn Fein leader Gerry
Adams about the 1972 IRA killing of a
Belfast widow, infuriating his Irish nation-
alist party and raising questions about the
stability of the province’s Catholic-
Protestant government.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland
confirmed in a statement its detectives
received permission at a closed-door hearing
with a judge to detain Adams for up to two
more days.
Had the request been refused, authorities
would have been required to charge Adams or
release him Friday night, two days after his
arrest in the abduction, slaying and secret
burial of Jean McConville, a mother of 10.
The new deadline is Sunday night, although
this too could be extended with judicial per-
The unexpectedly long detention of
Adams left senior party colleagues seething.
Sinn Fein warned it could end its support for
law and order in Northern Ireland — a key
peacemaking commitment that enabled the
creation of a unity government seven years
ago — if Adams is charged.
Deputy First Minister Martin
McGuinness, the Sinn Fein official who
governs Northern Ireland alongside British
Protestant politicians, said his party would
reconsider its 2007 vote to recognize the
legitimacy of Northern Ireland’s police if
Adams isn’t freed without charge.
Protestants required that commitment before
agreeing to cooperate with Sinn Fein.
McGuinness, who like Adams reputedly
was an Irish Republican Army commander
for three decades, said Sinn Fein would “con-
tinue to support the reformers within polic-
ing” if Adams is freed.
“Or the situation will not work out in the
way we believe that it should. If it doesn’t ,
we will have to review that situation,” he
Moderate politicians criticized Sinn Fein
for making unreasonable threats.
The justice minister in Northern Ireland’s
five-party government, David Ford, told
journalists outside the police station where
Adams was being held that detectives were
just doing their jobs in investigating one of
the most heinous crimes of the conflict.
Without specifying any of his government
colleagues, Ford said some were seeking to
promote instability.
“I have seen no evidence, in the four years
that I have been minister, of policing being
operated on a political basis. I have certain-
ly seen plenty of evidence of politicians
from different backgrounds seeking to inter-
fere in policing,” said Ford, who leads
Alliance, the only party actively seeking
support from both the Irish Catholic and
British Protestant sides of the divide. It
receives few votes.
Were Sinn Fein to withdraw its support for
law and order, it would offer a green light to
today’s still-active IRA factions to increase
attacks on police.

High-speed rail
train — let the games begin
So these Californian politicians
are not giving up on reassigning our
tax money to fund their pet pro-
grams. Case in point is the high-
speed rail project. Ajudge in
Sacramento halted state financing
for California’s bullet train but now,
the Democrats are eying a plan that
would fund the high-speed rail line
with proceeds from the state’s cap-
and-trade program on carbon emis-
The majority of Californians
polled recently have recently
stated that they are no longer sup-
porting this project but the 1 per-
centers in Sacramento are not l i s-
tening. Vote them out and let them
know now that this is not going to
happen on our watch.

Safeway shoppers beware
As a longtime senior shopper, I
enjoy using my Safeway discount card
and, like others, I am motivated in
part to shop there because of the dis-
counted gasoline price at Chevron
stations when using the Safeway dis-
count card. Earlier in April, I saw
their notice that by spending over
$100 at one time, gasoline would be
at a 70 cents a gallon discount if
bought by April 22.
On April 21, as usual, my phone
number was entered as the tank was
filled up at the Chevron station, but
the maximum discount was 20 cents a
gallon, not the 70 cents a gallon as
promised. Long story short, Safeway
corporate office finally explained:
“Local partner stations only give 20
cents a gallon maximum off, to get
the full advertised 70 cents a gallon,
you have to buy from a company-
owned station.” Surprised to find out
that Safeway owned and ran service
stations, I asked, “So where can I find
a Safeway gas pump?” After running
my local zip code, their answer was,
“There isn’t one within 100 miles of
Foster City.” I said that just doesn’t
seem fair to people who do what your
ad says then you don’t deliver what
was promised.
I can live with the $12.50 I lost on
a Chevron fill-up but Safeway should
both clean up its misleading ads and
send out some sort of coupon to all
those people who believed in them to
make up for their damaged goodwill.

Letters to the editor
By Mark Moulton
ousing affordability. It’s a rel-
ative term that implies that
you have money left over at
the end of the month after you have
paid your rent or mortgage to get down
to the business of living. “Housing”
includes utilities, so when you think
about what jobs we have locally, think
about incomes as three times housing
costs to get an idea about what is need-
ed in annual earnings for your housing
budget. Since market rents are now
about $2,200 per month for a one-bed-
room apartment here, those homes are
not “affordable” by definition, because
they cannot be obtained by the aver-
age working families who we are talk-
ing about, who are also customers for
housing here. When the supply of
housing is chronically short and the
demand is consistently high, our com-
munity is at risk of driving out the
very people who make our community
complete. “Affordable housing” differs
slightly from “housing that’s afford-
able” in that it costs what renters and
buyers can afford to pay per month. It
is consciously built to remain that
way. It is not “sub-standard” housing,
or “cheaply-built” housing or “govern-
ment” housing.
We need more housing in San Mateo
County because our population in the
Bay Area and in San Mateo County is
growing and because we are creating
jobs here. Our county needs more
housing because people and families at
all income levels are in the market for
housing here. There is very little
vacancy for new employees and we
have built housing at a low rate for
many years.
We care about housing availability
here because we
want our family
members to have
the choice to live
where they work or
grew up and living
situations change
over time. We need
more housing
opportunities at all
income levels since we strive for a
diverse and vibrant community that
meets the needs of our high-profile
tech community and the people who
make our community work. We care
because our long-term economic suc-
cess as a county and as part of a nine-
county region depends on creating
opportunity for our businesses to grow
from each city that hosts them.
Prospective voters in high school
civics classes, those who live here,
and those who work here need to learn
about and deliberate this complex
issue that affects virtually every facet
of our community. Wide understanding
will help the people who volunteer to
make decisions on behalf of the com-
munity, such as members of city coun-
cils, commissioners and members of
homeowner and neighborhood associ-
ations. Otherwise those volunteers are
representing an uneducated public that
does not recognize the issues, the pos-
sibilities for change and the potential
unintended consequences. One voice
silent in our deliberation is represent-
ing those who would like to live here
but cannot. Our jurisdictions are in
control of their land use decisions and
here in San Mateo County. This means
our voters will need to be deeply con-
vinced that change and growth can
bring more, rather than less, quality of
After all, with our terrific neighbor-
hoods and valuable homes, who needs
options to change and why would they
want to change? As we suburbanites
look at what defines our quality of life,
we find it comes with auto dependence,
privacy but sometimes isolation, con-
sumption patterns that keep us hop-
ping to cover our costs and the health
consequences to both adults and chil-
dren of busy lives — some of this is
great, some not. Will more people liv-
ing in San Mateo make our community
better? Why not talk about it?
Since we need affordable housing
here, can we as a community change
our range of housing opportunities?
With the economy driving job creation
that will provide many jobs with low
incomes for support service employ-
ees, it is not a question of “whether,” it
is a question of “how?” So is this need
for affordable housing a threat or an
opportunity to San Mateo County?
This need, if unmet, carries a threat of
smothering our economy, with each
high-paying job generating a need for
one or two more jobs that will pay
$25,000 to $50,000 per year. The need
for affordable housing, like the need
for market-rate housing, is our oppor-
tunity to get to work revitalizing our
Main Street and sustaining our quality
of life.
Mark Moulton is the executive director
of the Housing Leadership Council of
San Mateo County.
Why we need more affordable housing in San Mateo
Job killers
he news this week was not unexpected. Still, it was
a blow to Southern California and beyond. For
years, we have heard whispers about the problem.
Some even spoke out about it, only to be ignored by the
media. However, this time it was too much to be ignored.
The news was that yet another company announced it is
leaving California. This time it was Toyota, a well-known,
well-respected brand that decided it has had enough.
Enough of the high taxes. Enough of the overregulation.
Enough of the artificially high energy costs. And like that,
poof, its headquarters will be gone from Torrance and,
along with it, 3,000 jobs will move to Texas.
California’s Legislature has been on a roll lately, pass-
ing law after law that make it so hard for manufacturers and
other industries to do business that they simply leave. Yet
at the same time, legislators
pass “targeted” tax breaks for
their crony donors in privileged
industries, so that campaign
dollars from those cronies keep
flowing into their already fat
bank accounts.
It’s gotten so bad that the
California Chamber of
Commerce annually issues a list
of the most egregious “Job
Killer” bills winding their way
through the legislative process.
This year, 15 have made the list,
which will evolve as the legisla-
tive process moves forward.
Three of the 2014 Job Killer bills involve costly new
workplace mandates while the remaining 12 pile up eco-
nomic development barriers that stymie job growth.
Defeating the latter are of critical importance for those
who care about good, middle-class jobs since, at 8.1 per-
cent, California still has the fourth highest unemployment
rate in the nation, according to the Bureau of Labor
The chamber reports that Senate Bill 1372 would
increase the corporate tax rate on publicly held corpora-
tions and financial institutions up to 15 percent according
to wage differentials across the United States. In addition,
it could increase the rate by 50 percent if the firm reduces
its workforce in the United States and simultaneously
increases its contractors. Now there’s a solution to slow
economic growth — raise taxes!
Or, how about Senate Bill 1381? It mandates a
California-only label on genetically engineered foods that
forces farmers and food companies to implement costly
new labeling, packaging, distribution and record keeping
for products sold in the state. Moreover, it includes a pri-
vate right of legal action, increasing litigation on all firms
in the supply chain if a product is not labeled properly.
Californians have already voted to reject such mandatory
labels, this bill attempts to sneak around that decision
through costly lawsuits designed to increase legal fees for
Surprisingly, even the porn industry is under progres-
sive-liberal attack. While not a chamber Job Killer,
Assembly Bill 1576, the “condom mandate,” threatens to
drive porn production out of California and take thousands
of jobs and $5 billion in revenue with it, says the Free
Speech Coalition, an industry trade group.
Sadly and dispiritingly, San Mateo County’s legislators
have taken almost every opportunity they could to kill
jobs for Californians. While final votes have not yet been
taken on the 2014 Job Killer bills, the results of the 2013
legislative session are clear. State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San
Mateo, Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South San
Francisco, and Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park,
are miserable failures when it comes to growing jobs and
the California economy.
Mullin, whose campaign website claims that he wants to
“promote job creation” has a sorry record of voting more
than 60 percent of the time for job-killing bills and
against economic growth. Gordon lists eight issues on his
campaign website, yet jobs and economic growth are not
among them. That’s no surprise given that he too voted
more than 60 percent of the time for job-killing bills. And
Hill claims on his campaign site that he will “work tire-
lessly to create local jobs.” I suppose that’s correct, if by
“work tirelessly” he means voting for job-killing bills
more than 60 percent of the time.
Unless the Legislature changes its ways, or we change
our elected officials, firms will continue to leave California
and strike out for the friendlier climes of Texas. While
some may cheer their departure, I’ll mourn for the
California that used to be, a place where people from all
corners of the globe came for the good jobs that made the
American Dream come true for them and their children.

NEW YORK — The stock market
ended lower on Friday as a surprising-
ly strong report on job gains failed
to impress investors.
Stocks rose in the early going after
the government reported that U.S.
employers hired at the fastest pace in
two years last month. The Standard
and Poor’s 500 index briefly rose
above its record closing high.
The market started to slump in late
morning trading on news of downed
helicopters and killed fighters in
eastern Ukraine. Early Friday
Ukrainian government forces
attacked pro-Russian insurgents in
the region.
All three major U.S. stock indexes
wavered between gains and losses for
most of the day.
Among the biggest losers was
LinkedIn. The online professional
networking service fell 8 percent
after reporting its largest quarterly
loss since going public. Expedia, the
online travel site, fell nearly 4 per-
cent, and Pfizer fell 1.3 percent after
the drug company’s latest offer to buy
AstraZeneca was rejected by its
In the jobs report, the government
said employers added 288,000 jobs
in April, 70,000 more than expected.
Hiring was stronger in the prior two
months than initially estimated, too.
The unemployment rate for April
plunged to 6.3 percent, the lowest
since September 2008.
Afew details of the report were less
encouraging. The drop in the unem-
ployment rate likely reflected long-
term jobless who had been out of
work for six months or more before
finally giving up looking for work.
People aren’t counted as unemployed
unless they’re looking for a job.
“Long-term unemployment is
higher than expected, but overall (the
report) is positive,” said Brad
Sorensen, director of market and sec-
tor research at Charles Schwab. He
added, “There isn’t a ton of enthusi-
asm in the market.”
Among the stocks taking big hits
Friday was Madison Square Garden,
which fell $3.62, or 6.6 percent, to
$51.47. The owner of sports teams
and entertainment venues like Radio
City Music Hall said its earnings fell
by half in its fiscal third quarter, part-
ly due to a management change and a
costly delay for a Rockettes produc-
t i on.
Among the gainers was Wynn
Resorts, which rose $15.05, or 7 per-
cent, to $221.68 after reporting that
its first-quarter net income grew 12
percent. The company cited strong
gambling revenues from its growing
operations in Macau.
More than halfway through the
first-quarter reporting season, earn-
ings for all companies in the S&P
500 are forecast to have grown 1.7
percent, according to S&P Capital
IQ, a data provider. That compares
with nearly 8 percent last quarter.
“We’ve got decent earnings
growth, but it’s not great,” said Dan
Morris, global investment strategist
at TIAA-CREF. “We want the market
to always hit new highs, but it has to
be driven by earnings growth.”
On Friday, the S&P 500 fell 2.54
points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,881.14.
The Dow Jones industrial average
lost 45.98 points, or 0.3 percent, to
16, 512. 89. The Nasdaq composite
dropped 3.55 points, or 0.1 percent,
to 4, 123. 90.
In Ukraine, the government sent
armored vehicles and troops to oust
pro-Russian insurgents in the eastern
city of Slovyansk. Two Ukrainian
helicopters were shot down, and sev-
eral people were reported dead.
Russia said Ukraine’s offensive
“destroyed” a two-week-old agree-
ment on defusing the crisis.
Investors sought safety in U.S.
Treasurys, pushing bond prices high-
er. The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note fell to 2.59 percent, near its
lowest level of the year.
The price of crude oil rose 34 cents
to $99.76 per barrel
In other corporate news, Estee
Lauder rose $3.43, or nearly 5 per-
cent, to $75.62 after reporting quar-
terly results that beat analysts’ esti-
mates. Earnings at the beauty prod-
ucts company jumped 19 percent,

WASHINGTON — The American econo-
my shrugged off the end of a brutal winter
last month, rebounding with the biggest
hiring surge in two years and suggesting
that the job market’s gains could endure.
Employers added 288,000 jobs across
industries from manufacturing to construc-
tion to accounting. Even local govern-
ments hired. The unemployment rate sank
to 6.3 percent, its lowest point since
2008, from 6.7 percent.
But the rate fell that far because many
fewer people began looking for work in
April, thereby reducing the number of
unemployed. The proportion of Americans
who either have a job or are looking for
one dropped to a three-decade low.
And the monthly employment report the
government released Friday showed that
worker pay has yet to pick up — evidence
that the job market has not fully recov-
Yet April’s robust hiring gains suggested
that the economy is returning to the solid
pace of growth it achieved in the second
half of 2013, before it was hammered by a
harsh winter. Job growth has averaged
203,000 a month in the past six months,
similar to last year’s average of 194,000.
Analysts said the economy is facing
fewer hurdles now. In addition to better
weather, growth is no longer held back by
steep government spending cuts, which
slowed growth in 2013. Many companies
had also stockpiled too many goods last
fall, forcing them to cut back in the first
quarter to clear their shelves.
“The absence of these factors is finally
allowing the economy’s underlying
strength to come to the surface,” said Bart
Van Ark, chief economist at the
Conference Board. “The result is not just a
relatively strong gain in jobs in April but
probably more of the same in May and
Explorys, a health-care data provider,
has ramped up hiring in the past six
months as more hospitals have used its
services to limit their costs. Explorys’
software can analyze patient data to predict
which ones are most likely to need follow-
up visits at home to prevent any complica-
The Cleveland-based company has added
about 30 people in the past six months,
bringing its staff to about 140.
“We need more software developers, data
analysts and data scientists,” says CEO
Steve McHale. “The economy’s improve-
ment has served us well.”
April’s solid job growth wasn’t enough
to boost stock prices. The Dow Jones
industrial average fell 48 points in after-
noon trading.

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown said
Friday that it appears there was little
California could have done to keep Toyota,
the world’s largest automaker, from moving
its U.S. headquarters and about 3,000 jobs
to Texas.
“Change is inevitable,” he told reporters
after addressing the Los Angeles Area
Chamber of Commerce.
Brown cited comments from senior
Toyota officials who said the decision to
consolidate operations in Plano, a suburb
of Dallas, was based partly on its proximity
to company manufacturing plants in Texas,
Kentucky, Mississippi and Indiana. Texas
Gov. Rick Perry said the state offered
Toyota $40 million in incentives, and the
mayor of Plano said the city aggressively
courted Toyota.
“So, you know, this is a company deci-
sion, whether — why and how — I think
they explained it,” Brown said. “But now, if
you don’t want to believe them, they gave
their reasons — and their reasons were con-
Republicans have said Toyota’s move is
another sign of California’s inhospitable
business climate and failure to aggressively
court companies, even as Texas and New
York target California businesses with what
they say are more favorable tax and regula-
tory environments.
The two leading Republicans who are
campaigning for governor in hopes of chal-
lenging Brown in November criticized him
for failing to enact policies that retain
major companies such as Toyota.

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco
49ers know Aldon Smith still has plenty of
work to do in order to repair his tarnished
image and stay on track away from the foot-
ball field.
They want to be an integral part of his
self-improvement project, exercising their
2015 fifth-year contract option for the star
linebacker on Friday. The team made the
decision despite Smith’s long list of legal
trouble that included an
arrest at Los Angeles
International Airport just
more than two weeks ago.
San Francisco faced a
Saturday deadline to
decide on Smith’s imme-
diate future, and general
manager Trent Baalke
suggested last week the
team would keep the fear-
some pass-rusher around for the near future
at least — for 2015, “and ‘16, and ‘17 and
‘18.” The 49ers will provide Smith with the
support he needs to deal with his rash of off-
the-field issues.
Yet Baalke has made it clear there must be
positive change, and soon.
San Francisco realizes Smith still could
face a suspension from the NFL for his DUI
last September, and is expected to look for
depth at linebacker during next week’s NFL
“Well, that remains to be seen. You pre-
pare for the worst and hope for the best,”
Baalke said of a potential suspension for
Smith. “There are still a lot of things that
are going to factor into that decision at the
league level and the club level. We’re work-
ing very diligently in the background try-
ing to make sure the right decisions are
made long term, not only for Aldon but for
this club.”
In his latest run-in with the law, Smith
was arrested April 13 at Los Angeles
International Airport. Police say the 24-
year-old NFL star was randomly selected for

By Nathan Mollat
After going undefeated in clinching its
sixth straight Peninsula Athletic League
Bay Division team championship, the
Menlo-Atherton boys’ tennis team was
looking to sweep the singles and doubles
titles in the PAL Individual Tournament at
Burlingame Friday afternoon.
The Bears were assured of winning the
doubles championship as the final pitted
two M-Atandems.
In the singles final, however, M-A’s Scott
Morris faced off against Half Moon Bay’s
rising star Drew Davison.
While Davison, a freshman, still has time
to win a PAL title, Friday was all about M-
A’s domination as Morris recorded a 6-2, 6-
2 win over Davison.
“I was trying to be consistent and keep up
the intensity,” Morris said. “[Davison] is a
tough player. ”
Morris, the tournament’s top seed, found
himself trailing 2-1 in both sets, but he
consistently pounded ground strokes,
pulled the third-seeded Davison back and
forth across the baseline and eventually
wore down his younger opponent.
“I was a little tired. I had to work hard the
last couple of days,” Davison said. “I had
some trouble with his serve. He’s a lefty and
he was putting them in difficult spots for me
to return. … He’s just a good player. ”
Although Davison won his three previous
matches in straight sets, he had to beat No.
6 seed Devon Hughes of Aragon in the quar-
terfinals and Burlingame’s Scott Taggart,
the No. 2 seed in the semifinals.
Conversely, Morris all but had a walkover
in his semifinal match. He and Mills’ James
Tanjuatco played just one game before
Tanjuatco retired with an injury.
“I was lucky I basically had a walkover in
the semifinals. That helped,” Morris said. “I

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The owners of
California Chrome are putting all their
hopes into the chestnut colt to win the
Kentucky Derby.
After all, he’s the only horse they own.
California Chrome, based at lesser-known
Los Alamitos racetrack in suburban Los
Angeles, is the early 5-2 favorite for
Saturday’s 140th Derby with good reason.
He has won four straight
races by a combined 24
1/4 lengths under Victor
Espinoza, who won the
Derby in 2002 with War
“He’s so light on his
feet,” Espinoza said. “He
just does things so easy
and makes my job easy. ”
California Chrome’s
owners, Steve Coburn
and Perry Martin, are no Kentucky blue
bloods. They’re a couple of working stiffs
who live near Reno, Nevada.
Atrainer called them “dumb asses” for get-
ting into the racing game, inspiring the duo
to put the letters DAP on their silks, which
stands for Dumb Ass Partners.
“We’re going to go down in history, ”
Coburn predicted.
California Chrome is the product of an
$8,000 mare and a $2,500 stallion. He’s
earned more than $1 million already, mak-
ing it somewhat easier for Coburn and
Martin to turn down a pre-Derby offer of $6
million for a 51 percent stake in the horse.
“We’ve been blessed with this colt,”
Coburn said. “The first time we saw him, we
knew it was going to be something spe-

HAYWARD — Cañada pitcher David
Moody pounded his glove in frustration as
he walked off the mound following an
eighth-inning walk to Chabot’s Tyler
The display of emotion, in which a bor-
derline 3-2 pitch went Chabot’s way, was a
culmination of a frustrating day for the
Colts, who fell to the No. 1-seed Gladiators
2-0 Friday in the opening game of the best-
of-three regional playoffs at Chabot.
With Chabot rallying for two unearned
runs in the second on three Colts errors in
the inning, and with Cañada manager Tony
Lucca being ejected for arguing an out call at
second base in the fifth, the temperament of
the usually reserved Moody was noticeably
frayed by the eighth.
“I think that moment, it was a year’s
worth of frustration,” Cañada pitching
coach Steve Hoff said. “I think it was the
magnitude of the game. … and I think any
time you go out there and you pitch in a big
game, every pitch is so important. So, when
you don’t get the one you think you should
get, I can see him getting a little emotional
about it.”
No doubt, Moody has pitched with some
hard luck this season. The sophomore’s first

LAS VEGAS — Floyd Mayweather Jr. is enough of a busi-
nessman to know his latest fight would be a tough sell, espe-
cially after setting records with Canelo Alvarez his last time
But sell he must, even though oddsmakers and nearly every-
one else give Marcos Maidana little chance in their welter-
weight title fight Saturday night. Afull house is already guaran-
teed at the MGM Grand hotel arena, but Mayweather needs peo-
ple at home to pay $64.95 for the fight if he is going to recoup
his guaranteed $32 million purse.
So Mayweather hinted this week that this might be his last
fight, though few in boxing believe that. He also said he
planned to stand in front of Maidana and trade punches with the
hard-hitting Argentine, though his history in the ring suggests
he won’t .
Oh, and he wants to score a knockout, something he’s done
only once in the last seven years.
“I want to look impressive,” Mayweather said. “I want to put
on a good show. We don’t expect this fight to go the distance.”
Mayweather returns to the ring for the first time since domi-
nating Alvarez in boxing’s richest bout,
taking on Maidana in a fight that even
Mayweather seems to have trouble express-
ing much enthusiasm about. He’s a bigger,
much more skilled fighter than the
Argentine, just part of the reason oddsmak-
ers make him a 11-1 pick to remain unde-
feated in the 46th fight of a pro career that
has made him the richest fighter ever.
Still, Mayweather (45-0, 26 knockouts)
says he has to be wary of the power
Maidana brings into the ring.
“He’s got an 80 percent knockout ratio so I can’t go to sleep
on this guy,” he said. “But guys can’t go to the mental level I’m
at. I can beat them many ways.”
The fight is part of a pay-per-view card that features former
champion Amir Khan moving up to welterweight to fight
another former champion in Luis Collazo. Khan had cam-
paigned to be Mayweather’s opponent and won an online poll
set up by Mayweather, who ended up picking Maidana instead.
If Khan is impressive, though, and Mayweather wins as
expected, the two could meet later this year.
“I would have loved to fight Floyd Mayweather, but I believe
it’s really for the best,” Khan said. “It gives me a chance to get
to 147 and feel my way.”
Maidana (35-3, 31 knockouts) earned the fight with a strong
showing in his last bout, twice knocking down Adrien Broner
on his way to a decision win in December. Though Maidana hits
hard, he will be up against a fighter who is such a defensive wiz-
ard that he rarely gets hit with more than one punch in any
“It’s very difficult to land a punch against Mayweather,”
Maidana said. “But when I land a punch I’m going to hit him
and not let him go. I will go after him.”
Mayweather said he welcomes the challenge after easily beat-
ing Alvarez last September in a fight that was supposed to be
his toughest test.
“If he brings his best maybe he will be the first guy that actu-
ally makes me dig in my bag of tricks and pull out my ‘A’
game,” Mayweather said. “Hopefully he will make me bring out
my ‘A’ game because my whole career all I had to use was a ‘D’
and ‘C’ game to beat every guy.”
If the Alvarez fight showed anything other than
Mayweather’s talent for making money — and tons of it — it
was that a conventional fighter stands little chance against
him. He’s been dodging punches since before he could walk,
and he’s a wizard at exploiting whatever weakness he finds in
the fighter in front of him.
“I can feel when a guy’s gonna punch. I can feel it,”
Mayweather said. “I don’t even have to see it; I can feel it. You
know, this is just with experience and being around the sport so
Maidana says he can become the first to beat Mayweather
because he will be the first to treat him just like any other fight-
er in the ring.
“Other fighters they show respect, they show fear,” he said.
“That’s one thing I won’t show against Mayweather.”

WBO lightweight champ
Crawford plans title defense
OMAHA, Neb. — The manager for Terence “Bud” Crawford
says an agreement in principle is in place for the WBO
lightweight champion to fight in his hometown of Omaha
next month against Yuriorkis Gamboa.
Cameron Dunkin said Friday night that a contract is yet to
be signed, but he added that “it will be a fun time” for Omaha
to host a world title fight for the first time since heavy-
weight champion Joe Frazier beat Ron Stander in 1972.
The Crawford-Gamboa bout is planned for June 28 at the
CenturyLink Center.
Crawford won his WBO title in March with a win over
Ricky Burns in Glasgow, Scotland. Gamboa is the interim
WBAlightweight champ.

ATLANTA — Michael Morse and
Angel Pagan homered, Tim
Lincecum allowed one run over six
innings and the San Francisco
Giants beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1
on Friday night.
San Francisco spoiled the sea-
son debut of Braves starter Mike
Minor with its seventh victory in
eight games.
Atlanta has a season-high four-
game losing streak.
After missing the first month of
the season with left shoulder ten-
dinitis, Minor (0-1) allowed seven
hits, two runs, no walks and struck
out four.
He trailed 1-0 when Pagan led off
the game with his third homer and
was down 2-1 in the sixth after
Morse added his seventh homer.
Lincecum (2-1) gave up six hits
and three walks with four strikeouts
and kept Braves hitters off balance
by keeping his pitches low in the
strike zone and added a sharp curve-
ball and slider.
Though Lincecum’s ERA still
stands at 5.12 this season, San
Francisco has won his past four
starts, and the right-hander is 3-0
with a 2.91 ERAover that span.
Lincecum had problems in the
fifth by walking leadoff hitter
Gerald Laird, who advanced on
Jason Heyward’s single and scored
from second on Freddie Freeman’s
RBI single.
But that was all the damage
Atlanta’s offense could muster.
San Francisco’s bullpen, which
leads the majors with a 1.98 ERA,
continued its stingy work.
Santiago Casilla, the third Giants
pitcher, struck out Chris Johnson
with runners on first and second to
end the seventh. He faced the mini-
mum in the eighth, lowering his
opponents’ batting average against
right-handers to .162 in 37 at-bats.
Two runs enough for Giants
BOSTON — Dustin Pedroia hit a
grand slam for his 100th career
home run and Clay Buchholz
picked up his first win at home as
the Red Sox beat the Oakland
Athletics 7-1 on Friday night.
Pedroia had yet to homer this
season before driving an 0-2 pitch
out to left field in the sixth inning
to put Boston up 6-1. The cushion
was plenty for Buchholz (2-2),
who shut down the team with the
top record in the American League.
Buchholz pitched 6 1-3 innings,
allowing one run on three hits and
striking out five. He walked three
and got himself out of several jams
as the A’s left five on base and were
0-for-7 with runners in scoring
position against Buchholz.
John Jaso scored Oakland’s only
run, coming in on a wild pitch after
leading off the third with a triple.
Boston was having its own
struggles with runners on before
Pedroia came through in the sixth
off of reliever Ryan Cook. Xander
Bogaerts and A.J. Pierzynski
started the sixth with back-to-
back singles off Dan Otero, who
began the inning. Otero struck
out Will Middlebrooks, then
walked Bradley to load the bases
with one out.
Cook relieved Otero and got
Pedroia down 0-2, before he cleared
the bases with a shot that just
cleared the Green Monster. A’s
manager Bob Melvin challenged
whether the ball cleared the yellow
line before a fan touched it and lost
the appeal.
The milestone homer put him in
elite Red Sox company as only the
second player in franchise history
with 100 home runs and 100 stolen
bases. Pedroia, who stole his
121st career base in the first
inning, joins Carl Yastrzemski
(452 home runs, 168 steals).
Boston hadn’t scored since get-
ting a pair of runs in the second
inning off starter Dan Straily (1-
2). Grady Sizemore led off with a
double and scored on Pierzynski’s
single with one out. Jackie Bradley
Jr. added a two-out double to drive
in Pierzynski and Boston led 2-0.

Weekend • May 3-4, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
This was the first time the two had met. Not
only because there is an age difference —
Morris is a senior — but because M-Aplays in
the Bay Division and Half Moon Bay was the
Ocean Division champion.
Despite facing an opponent playing in an
inferior division, Morris was not overlook-
ing Davison.
“He beat Taggart in the semis. ... I knew he
had game, for sure,” Morris said.
In the end, Morris was just more powerful
and more consistent. Davison, however,
looked at the whole tournament as a learning
experience, considering the Cougars are mov-
ing up to the Bay Division next season.
“It’s good to see and play some of the com-
petition in the upper league,” Davison said.
“My goal was to get to the finals.”
The doubles final pitted M-A’s No. 1 doubles
tandem of Saul Menjivar and Axel Brenner —
who were seeded third in the doubles tourna-
ment — against the tournament’s No. 1 seed
of Nick and Reed Fratt. In the end, the Fratt
brothers dominated, winning 6-2, 6-0.
“We were expecting to see each other (in the
championship match),” said Reed Fratt, a
sophomore and the younger of the two broth-
ers. Nick Fratt is a senior.
The Fratts spent most of the season playing
singles, but decided to hook up for the post-
season. While the two play together on the
junior tournament circuit, this was the first
time they played together in high school
“This is our only time at M-A playing
together,” Reed Fratt said. “We thought we
could make it special.”
With M-A assistant coach Carlos Aguilar
looking on, the Fratts dismantled their team-
mates, which shocked Aguilar.
It even stunned Reed Fratt a little bit as well.
“We definitely stepped up our play. We were
a little sloppy the past couple of days,” Reed
Fratt said. “We were making crisp shots
Despite seeing the end of PAL play, both
singles finalists and doubles teams will
advance to the Central Coast Section tourna-
ment which starts in a couple weeks. Both
Morris and the Fratt brothers believe they
have what it takes to contend for individual
“Our goal is definitely (to make the) finals,”
Reed Fratt said. “We’re looking to win it.”
As far as M-A’s PALdominance this season,
Morris admitted this season was one of the
best for the school.
“It’s really special, especially as a senior,”
Morris said. “I’m honored to be part of this
Added Reed Fratt: “It’s definitely exciting. I
think (sweeping the individual titles to add to
the team championship) demonstrates what
kind of season we’ve had.”
There were no third-place matches contest-
ed, as Taggart was awarded third place after
Tanjuatco had to forfeit because of injury.
Woodside’s Hal Tuttle and Jose Lopez finished
third in doubles by virtue of a walkover.

two losses of the year came to Allan
Hancock on Feb. 14 in surrendering one run
on two hits through seven innings, and to
Cabrillo in the Coast Conference opener
Feb. 25 in which he yielded one earned run
through 8 1/3 innings.
“David Moody did everything he could
today to help us win a baseball game,”
Cañada interim manager Tony Gomes said.
“He was lights out. He was incredible. He
was changing speeds. At the end of the game
I told him, ‘Keep your head up because you
did everything your team asked of you to
help us win this baseball game.’”
Moody was indeed stellar Friday in tab-
bing the complete-game loss, taking a no-
hitter into the fifth inning and finishing the
day yielding just two unearned runs on three
hits. But Chabot right-hander James Carter
was better, taking a no-hitter into the sixth
inning while persevering for his first
shutout of the year.
Carter, the Coast Golden Gate Conference
Pitcher of the Year, threw 130 pitches en
route to improving to 9-3. The 6-3 hurler
certainly looks like he’s built to last. More
importantly, he knows how to pitch,
according to Chabot manger Stever Friend.
“He’s tougher mentally than he is phys-
ically,” Friend said. “He did a good job
keeping us in the ballgame. He needed to
because David Moody pitched a heck of a
ballgame himself.”
All the runs scored in the game crossed the
plate in the second by way of three errors by
Cañada shortstop Kyle Zirbes. The third-
year sophomore kicked three routine
groundballs, two of which were potential
double-play grounders, to open the door for
“We’ve got to play defense behind him
and we didn’t do it,” Gomes said.
Chabot (28-7) got its leadoff hitter on
base in the second when Ivan Perez reached
on Zirbes’ first error. Perez stole second and
Travis Hull walked to put runners at first and
second. Davis followed by hitting a poten-
tial double-play grounder to short that
Zirbes seemed to rush, causing him to boot
it to load the bases. Then No. 9 hitter Blake
Guardino hit another would-be double-play
ball which kicked off Zirbes’ glove and into
left field to allow Perez and Hull to score.
Cañada finally got out of the inning when
Robert Smith hit into a 6-4-3 double play.
“Usually [Zirbes] is a solid player for us,”
Gomes said. “We’re going to stick with
him. He’s our guy. He’s going to make those
plays 90 percent of the time. So, it’s just
unfortunate that it happened today. ”
The Colts’ best offensive chance came in
the sixth by loading the bases with one out.
Matt Eastman got the rally started with a
sharp grounder that could have been called
an error, but instead went for the first Colts
hit of the day. Alex Jenkins followed with a
sacrifice bunt to move Eastman to second.
Zirbes walked and Maurice Fuller scorched a
legit single to left to load the bases.
But Carter buckled down to retire the
Colts’ No. 3 and 4 hitters in order by induc-
ing a pop-up off the bat of Dylan Cook and
striking out Justin Gubser to strand the
bases loaded.
Lucca was ejected in the fifth inning fol-
lowing an out call at second base. Carter
retired the first 12 batters he faced, but hit
Gubser with a hanging curveball to start the
fifth. Chris Miguel proceeded to hit a
grounder to shortstop where Chabot’s
Dawkins came up with it and threw to sec-
ond, where the ball was dropped, but Gubser
was called out.
Lucca argued the call while Gubser
remained on the second-base bag in protest.
According to Lucca, the umpire said his
view of the play was obstructed by the run-
ner and he did not see the ball was dropped.
After the umpires conferred, the out call was
upheld and Lucca and Gubser returned to the
dugout seemingly peaceably. However, as
play resumed with Jason Marley at the
plate, the home plate umpire called timeout
while Carter was delivering a pitch and
ejected Lucca from the game.
“That was a little odd,” Friend said. “I
think the thing is we’ve got to leave the
field promptly and if we don’t we get
The best-of-three regional playoff series
concludes Saturday with Game 2 tabbed for
and 11 a.m. start. If necessary, Game 3 will
be played approximately 30 minutes fol-
lowing the conclusion of Game 2. Lucca is
required to serve a mandatory one-game sus-
pension for being ejected. As of press time
Friday, a decision was not made as to
whether Lucca would be suspended for addi-
tional games due to excessive arguing.
Still, the No. 16-seed Colts (25-13)
remained upbeat about making a run at next
week’s Super Regional playoffs.
“We like our chances,” Gomes said. “We
didn’t get beat today. We kind of beat our-
selves. We squandered some opportunities
offensively where we had a chance to get
ahead in this game. We just have to put
together a little bit better at-bats. … We
don’t feel like we’re out of this. We feel like
we’re right here.”

The Bulldogs scored three runs in the top
of the sixth inning and added an insurance
run in the eighth to make Keone Cabinian a
winner on the mound as they opened their
Northern California playoff series with the
Bear Cubs.
Dylan Isquirdo had a pair of hits, drove in
two runs and scored a run for CSM (26-13).
Steven Pastora returned to the lineup and
drove in a run, while Dominic Orlando came
off the bench to supply a pinch-hit RBI in
the eighth.
Cabinian worked 8 1/3 innings, limiting
Santa Rosa (25-11) to just five hits. Skyler
Fuss pitched the final two innings, allowing
a hit.
The Bulldogs and Bear Cubs will play
again in the best-of-three series Saturday at
11 a.m. A CSM win and the Bulldogs
advance. A Santa Rosa win and the two
teams will turn around and play a winner-
take-all finale at approximately 2 p.m.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Sprinter
Tyson Gay has accepted a one-year suspen-
sion and has returned the silver medal he
won in the men’s 400-meter relay at the
London Olympics after he tested positive
for a prohibited substance.
USADAannounced Friday that Gay’s one-
year ban began last June 23, the day his
sample was collected at
the U.S. championships.
As part of the penalty,
he also accepted loss of
results dating to July 15,
USADA said in a state-
ment that upon receiving
notification of his posi-
tive tests, Gay voluntari-
ly withdrew from all com-
petition prior to the 2013 world champi-
onships and has not competed since.

Tan, a Burlingame graduate, won a
state championship in the 100
backstroke in Los Angeles Friday
in a time of 49.86.
It is the first CSM state champi-
on since Don Gray won the 50 free
in 1966.
Coach Randy Wright said the
plan was to swim in the 50s in the
preliminaries and swim under that
in the finals. Tan came into the
championships with a best time of
51. 1. He swam a 50.20 in his pre-
liminary race and came back to
post a sub-50 time in the finals,
winning by more than a second.
Tan has a chance to win another
state title as he in has the top time

That followed Smith’s five-game absence
last season to undergo treatment for substance
abuse after a September DUI arrest. In
November, he pleaded not guilty to three
felony counts of illegal possession of an
assault weapon, stemming from a June 2012
party at his home. Investigators say several
shots were fired, two partygoers were injured
and Smith was stabbed. In the subsequent
investigation, prosecutors say detectives
found five unregistered, illegal weapons in
Smith’s house, including two Bushmaster
rifles and an Armalite AR-10T.
Yet, what Smith brings on the field makes
him one of the NFL’s best at chasing down and
pressuring quarterbacks.
Smith emerged as one of the league’s most-
feared pass rushers in 2012. He had a fran-
chise-record 19 1/2 sacks that year, but failed
to record a sack in his final six games includ-
ing the team’s postseason Super Bowl run.
Smith finished with 8 1/2 sacks and 34 tack-
les in 11 games last season, making eight
starts. His 42 sacks are second-most in the
NFLsince he entered the league.
He and former teammate Delanie Walker
were named in a lawsuit last September filed in
Santa Clara County Superior Court by a
Northern California man who said he was shot
at a party at Smith’s house on June 29, 2012.
The players charged a $10 admission and $5
per drink, the lawsuit said. Smith and now-
Tennessee Titans tight end Walker were
allegedly intoxicated on Smith’s balcony
when they fired gunshots in the air while try-
ing to end the party, the lawsuit said.
Smith, selected seventh overall in the 2011
draft out of Missouri, had previously been
arrested on suspicion of DUI in January 2012
in Miami shortly after the 49ers lost in the
NFC championship game.
Baalke and the rest of the 49ers hope Smith
will learn a lesson at last, and become a better
person because of it. Smith said during a
January interview with The Associated Press
he was encouraged by his strides and confident
he had made positive changes in his life.
“I’m a firm believer in the humanistic
approach to everything. You continue to work
just like you would with any family member,”
Baalke said. “We’re a family. You don’t just
open the door and toss people out of it. You
continue to work until they leave you no
choice. That’s what we’re going to do. We’re
going to continue to work with him, we’re
going continue to find ways to support, not
defend, we cannot defend the actions of others,
all we can do is support.”

Rosie Napravnik wants to grab history, too.
No female jockey has won the Derby,
although she came closest — fifth last year.
Napravnik will ride 20-1 shot Vicar’s In
Trouble. Her husband, Joe Sharp, works close-
ly with the Louisiana-bred colt as assistant to
trainer Mike Maker.
“The story would almost be too good if we
won it,” she said.
Wicked Strong is the early 6-1 second
choice. The colt is named for the victims of
last year’s Boston Marathon bombings and is
trained by Jimmy Jerkens, who has his first
Derby horse.
Trainer Todd Pletcher has four horses in the
Derby — Danza and Intense Holiday are both
8-1 while his other two are longer shots, 30-1
Vinceremos and 50-1 We Miss Artie. Danza is
named for “Taxi” actor Tony Danza, who
planned to attend the Derby.
Maker will saddle three horses, all long
shots. Besides Vicar’s In Trouble, he has 15-1
General a Rod and 50-1 Harry’s Holiday.
“When those gates open, anything can hap-
pen,” Maker said.
Three-time Derby winner Bob Baffert is
down to 20-1 shot Chitu after being forced to
scratch early second favorite Hoppertunity
because of a minor foot problem.
“California Chrome has proven he’s a really
good horse,” Baffert said, adding, “There’s a
lot of parity in this field. Everybody might
have a chance.”
Getting the ideal trip is important, especial-
ly with the traffic from 19 horses making a
chaotic charge into the first turn. Jockeys want
to avoid anything that would prevent their
horse from getting into rhythm, like being
bumped, cut off or blocked.
Sherman says the key is the first 70 yards.
“You want to get out and get yourself some
position,” he said.
The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high
of 73 degrees, with a crowd of at least 140,000
Keep an eye on jockey Calvin Borel. He and
15-1 shot Ride On Curlin will break from the
No. 18 spot in the starting gate. Borel will try
to hustle the colt over to his favorite path on
the track — the rail. The rider nicknamed “Bo-
rail” for his fence-skimming rides has three
Derby wins in the last seven years.
Post time is 6:32 p.m. EDT.

LOS ANGELES — Doc Rivers couldn’t
begin the Los Angeles Clippers’ only day of
preparation for Game 7 in the film room or on
the practice court.
The coach was downtown at the Clippers’
team offices Friday, meeting with an angry
roomful of ticket-sellers and marketers still
outraged by owner Donald Sterling’s racist
“I’ll say this much: Our players thought
about not working. So did our employees,
and they still felt that way,” Rivers said.
“They needed somebody to ask them to con-
tinue to work and support us. We’re still try-
ing to put this thing together.”
For both the Clippers and the Golden State
Warriors, basketball has been secondary for
much of this extraordinary series. But after
the most tumultuous week in Clippers histo-
ry, the first round is finally down to its grand
The Clippers will host a seventh game for
the first time in franchise history on Saturday
night, hoping to draw energy from their
Staples Center crowd for a cathartic victory.
The winner gets a second-round date with
Oklahoma City or Memphis.
“We’ve got to protect home court,”
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said Friday.
“Our season is tomorrow.”
The Warriors have been just one obstacle
faced by the Clippers, who endured sleepless
nights and immense scrutiny while their
owner was exposed and subsequently banned
for life from the NBAbetween playoff games.
Los Angeles has lost two of three games
since the Sterling saga began, playing life-
lessly in Game 4 before struggling along
with the Warriors in Game 6 on Thursday
When the Clippers went back to work
Friday, Sterling-related memorabilia had
been removed from the trophy case in the
hallway at their palatial $60 million training
complex built by Sterling six years ago.
Even the “Sterling Drive” sign outside the
Playa Vista facility had been taken down.
The Clippers missed their chance to wrap
the series in Oakland, but the Pacific
Division champions played all year for the
chance to finish a series on their home court.
“It’s going to be tough, and you’re going
to face adversity, and we clearly have faced
adversity in this round,” said Blake Griffin,
who managed just 17 points on 8-for-24
shooting in Game 6. “I think it’s just impor-
tant that we all stayed the course and had pos-
itive thoughts about it. It is a Game 7, but it’s
still a playoff game. It doesn’t change a
whole lot.”
Neither team plans to spend much time
working on tactics or adjustments after six
games of seeing everything their opponent
has to offer. Both teams aren’t saying much
about various nagging injuries, from Chris
Paul’s strained left hamstring for the
Clippers to Jermaine O’Neal’s bone bruise in
his right kneecap for Golden State.
Instead, two relatively inexperienced play-
off teams are eager to show off everything
they’ve learned about perseverance and
toughness over the past two weeks, culmi-
nating in a rare winner-take-all finish to their
“I’m not sure that both teams love each
other, but I’m pretty positive that both teams
have tremendous respect for each other, ”
Warriors coach Mark Jackson said.
The Clippers’ core played a Game 7 two
years ago, beating Memphis on the road for
just their second playoff series victory since
Sterling bought the team in 1981. Jordan and
Griffin said there was little to draw from that
victory, with Jordan barely remembering it.
The Warriors haven’t played a Game 7
since 1977, no surprise for a franchise with
just three playoff berths in the last 20 years.
O’Neal is questionable for Saturday, but
Festus Ezeli could make his season debut
after knee surgery for Golden State.
When asked if an injury could keep him out
of Game 7, Paul scoffed.
“I’ll be there,” Paul said. “Seven-thirty,
that ball’s throwed up, I’ll be there. Can’t
Warriors and Clippers
focus on series finale
SAN JOSE — The pain of another playoff
collapse was still fresh less than two days later
as the San Jose Sharks packed up for another
early summer.
General manager Doug Wilson expressed
his still boiling anger in a team meeting
Friday and vowed that the status quo is not an
option after the Sharks became the fourth NHL
team to lose a best-of-seven series after win-
ning the first three games.
But Wilson said it will be his recommenda-
tion that the change not include coach Todd
McLellan. Wilson said he has not yet talked to
owner Hasso Plattner and acknowledged that
he also is under evaluation.
Wilson said the final decision on what the
Sharks will do going forward will likely be
made in the next two weeks.
“This is not a nick or a scratch,” Wilson
said. “This is an open wound. When the emo-
tions are raw, the emotions should run deep
and resonate and live for a long time. We have
already started the process of what decisions
we’re going to make.”
The Sharks won the first three games of the
series by a margin of 17-8. But they managed
only two goals in the final three games in the
latest playoff disappointment for a franchise
that has the second-most points in the regular
season the past 10 seasons but is still looking
for its first Stanley Cup appearance.
McLellan took the blame for the collapse
after the Game 7 loss and said he is even more
frustrated two days later with his team’s per-
formance in their second straight playoff loss
to the Kings.

became head of school in February after
serving as an interim for the position. “It
was my intention to protect my relation-
ship with Gregg and to make sure I could
continue the relationship. … I realize that
my reasons for the decision could be misin-
Meanwhile, alumnae of the school quick-
ly created a Facebook page dedicated to sup-
porting Cassin called “NDB Women
Respond” and has nearly 2,400 members.
Current students are also expressing their
concerns about Cassin’s removal. One
alumna showing support for Cassin is
Lauren Williamson, now a student at
University of Colorado at Boulder, who said
there’s been a lot of overwhelming support
for Cassin, whose message to the girls was
one of love and self-acceptance. She
believes Notre Dame’s decision was unfortu-
“Notre Dame should have supported Gregg
— that’s what we’ve always been taught to
do,” she said. “Gregg never taught anything
against Catholic teaching. … I think an
apology would definitely be good for Gregg
and the best thing for the school would be
for Gregg to be back.”
But Osmond said her intentions were good
ones, her mistake was in how she communi-
cated the decision to Cassin, she said. She
asked Sequeira to tell Cassin about the can-
cellation of Tuesday’s speech rather than
doing so herself. Since, Osmond said she
has been in communication with him by
email and is hoping they can get together
and talk. She would be interested in having
him back this year if schedules align before
the end of the school year in May, she said.
“It’s been a challenging time, but it’s a
really good opportunity for us and it’s a
really important conversation,” she said.
“Gregg is a really valued member of this
community. He has made a profound differ-
ence in the lives of our graduates and current
students. It’s an important topic about
inclusion and tolerance.”
Cassin said he would like to meet with
Osmond and is hopeful the situation will be
“I think for me the biggest story is this
witch-hunt that this right-wing Catholic
website has on the LGBT community,” he
said. “It’s really damaging and it sends
schools into a little bit of a tailspin. They
wonder ‘what’s going to happen? Is the
archdiocese is going to come down on
them?’ Is LGBT staff safe? Is there going to
be some sort of mandate?’”
Williamson and other alumnae want to
make sure having him back can’t be put off
until next year. The head of school’s emails
to current students, parents and alumnae
acknowledged she did make the decision
herself, Williamson said, adding Osmond
has been doing a great job talking about it.
Williamson thinks Osmond feared the
Archdiocese of San Francisco, which the
school is under, would make an immediate
decision that would cause him to be banned.
“If they (the school) supported Gregg,
they wouldn’t have shut down the speaker, ”
she said. “It proves hate speech works if
they (the website) know all they have to do
is write an article and Notre Dame will
Osmond said she has met with almost
every girl in the school to talk about the
issue. Additionally, Osmond said the quality
of postings in the Facebook page impressed
and even encouraged students to visit the
page since she found the posts incredibly
“One of the things that concerns me is the
perception that is out that we are an intoler-
ant community,” she said. “Nothing could
be further from the truth. … We’re commit-
ted to creating a caring, diverse communi-
t y. ”
Three other Catholic schools in the area
were also criticized on the website for what
each of the schools teach, with the site urg-
ing readers to contact local officials about
the schools’ actions.
“Most important is to contact the princi-
pal of your local Catholic elementary
schools,” the March 21 California Catholic
Daily posting about Notre Dame states.
“Almost all enrollment to Catholic high
schools come from Catholic elementary
feeder schools. The elementary principals
may be unaware of the catastrophic state of
religious education in Archdiocesan high
schools, and they are the persons with the
greatest ability to effect change, by their
willingness to steer students towards or
away from prospective high schools.”
Cassin said the painful thing is there have
been schools that have problems with how
to respond to these types of posts. He said
he knows they were trying to protect their
“All of those schools should have come
together immediately and taken a stand,” he
said. “I would love to have the four schools
meet. It would be a show of unity and not
cowering to that kind of bigotry. The
Archdiocese is staying out of it, so we
should be taking the stand. We know our
values and what our hearts require of that and
that is inclusion. Amuch greater majority of
Catholics are in support of gay rights and
LGBT equality. It’s ridiculous to cower to a
few archaic, mean-spirited people.”
In addition to the Facebook page she cre-
ated, class of 1993 alumna Jennifer
Doskow-Perea sent a letter to Osmond ask-
ing her to specifically state the reasoning
for removing Cassin as a speaker, issuing a
statement to the women impacted, inviting
Cassin back to the school and hosting a
retreat on campus with alumnae, students,
parents and the community to come togeth-
er to hear Cassin’s message of love and self-
Cassin himself said he felt the decision
was a misstep based around fear of negative
“I’m really proud of these young women,”
he said.

If the change went forward, the school
would dedicate the library to former district
superintendent Albion Horrall, whose
namesake was given to the school.
“It was named after a wonderful superin-
tendent and I don’t want to diminish that at
all,” she said.
The school’s current theme is visual and
performing arts with technology integra-
tion. Horrall’s key attributes are demon-
strated leadership; commitment to innova-
tion; community; dedicated teachers and
staff; and diversity. The new program would
focus on using computers and technology to
facilitate literacy, writing and other creative
arts through recording, video production,
graphic design, coding and other mediums.
It would also include a lunch-hour and after-
school enrichment program, an iPad lab, a
state-of-the-art library and multi-media
facilities, according to a report put together
by Singer.
Some of these new resources are already in
the process of being rolled out and, accord-
ing to a Singer survey, 83 percent of Horrall
parents thought a tech-centered education
would prepare their children for more suc-
cessful futures.
“All of those things have started,” said
Tim Merritt, a third-grade teacher at the
school. “It’s just baby steps and could be so
much more.”
The staff has done an amazing amount of
development and training recently, Dullea
Some school board members are a little
more skeptical about the plan.
“I think all those things are great, but
they’re going on at other schools too,” said
Trustee Chelsea Bonini.
With the extra resources, school staff said
it will be able to be on par with other
schools that have more parent teacher asso-
ciation funding.
The school is also looking at partnering
with Silicon Valley tech firms and Cal State
East Bay’s education department. Reading
Bugs has already partnered with the school,
bringing visiting authors to the campus.
There would also be dedicated resources such
as a digital arts and tech coordinator.
Singer even created a logo with nine sym-
bols, one representing literacy and lan-
guage and others for digital arts, technolo-
gy, diversity, creativity, growth, the sum
being greater than its parts and the com-
plete package of the school’s offerings.
Trying to become a feeder school to com-
panies like Pixar should be one of Horrall’s
goals, said board President Colleen
“You guys right now are taking a leap that
other schools are not ready to take,”
Sullivan said. “Horrall staff is unbeliev-
The school hopes to have rebranding
completed by this fall, according to a proj-
ect timeline. Students would get to take part
in the naming the school’s mascot, Dullea
The topic is tentatively going to be dis-
cussed further May 8 in a bigger conversa-
tion on magnet schools. Abigger conversa-
tion about the philosophy of having mag-
net schools in the district would be a good
idea, said Trustee Lory Lawson.

Homer goes
hard-body in
new Lego episode
By Judy Richter
Mel Brooks has a knack for convert-
ing his funny, successful movies into
funny, successful musicals. “The
Producers” came first, then “Young
Frankenstein,” which is delighting
Palo Alto Players audiences.
Director Patrick Klein has assembled
an outstanding cast and artistic team
who have all contributed to a polished,
hilarious production.
Set in 1934, the book by Brooks and
Thomas Meehan concerns a successful
American brain surgeon, Dr. Frederick
Frankenstein (Steven Ennis), who must
travel to Transylvania to claim the
estate of his late grandfather.
When he arrives, he’s greeted by his
grandfather’s humpbacked lab assis-
tant, Igor (Joey McDaniel) and the
comely Inga (Jessica Whittemore), who
is to be his assistant, too. Also on hand
is his grandfather’s housekeeper-lover,
Frau Blücher (Linda Piccone).
He says he wants nothing to do with
his grandfather’s work, which involved
digging up dead bodies, implanting
them with brains and, thus, creating
scary monsters that kept the villagers
on edge.
Nevertheless, Frederick succumbs to
the scientific lure, believing that if he
implants a body with the brain of a bril-
liant, good person, the new creation
also will be brilliant and good.
Unfortunately, Igor mistakenly brings
him an abnormal brain.
The resultant monster (Michael D.
Reed) is a hulking, shuffling, inarticu-
late creature who gets loose and sends
the village into a frenzy. As he crashes
through the woods, he encounters
Frederick’s fiancee, Elizabeth (Lindsay
Stark), who had never allowed Frederick
to touch her.
She had arrived unexpectedly and
found Frederick and Inga in a compro-
mising situation. When she meets the
monster, his physical endowments lead
to a mutually satisfying union.
There’s more after that. Suffice it to
say that the entire show is infused with
Brooks’ zany, frequently risque humor
as well as tuneful music with clever

When I started my college
search at the end of sophomore
year, I was so confident I wanted
to leave home and go far away to
the East Coast. I went college
touring and looked at many col-
leges at the other end of the coun-
try. I thought I didn’t want to stay
anywhere near home, so I almost
dismissed the idea of seeing col-
leges on the West Coast. At the
end of junior year, my parents
convinced me to see more col-
leges close to home and, though I
still wanted to go to Boston or
New York, I was warming up to
the idea that I might be more com-
fortable in California. When it
finally came time to narrow down
my list of colleges, it occurred to
me it wasn’t practical to try and
apply to every single college I
had ever considered.
But I was stuck. I didn’t know
how to narrow my list down. I was

ing a drastic change in setting, versus
moving just slightly out of my com-
fort zone. I was also conflicted
because my entire life — all my
friends and activities — were near
home and I didn’t want to have to
forgo them all by moving to the East
Coast. I couldn’t imagine giving up
my dance, for which I have worked 11
years, or my music, for which I have
worked eight years. I think that
became the final deciding factor for
me. I had seen all my friends go to
colleges far away and have to quit
their extracurriculars, and I realized
that I valued my activities too highly
to risk losing them all. This was the
point at which I decided not to apply
to most of the colleges I had seen
back East.
In retrospect, seeing all those col-
leges was probably a decision I made
in haste in an attempt to escape my
18 years of living in California.
Nevertheless, I was accepted to a
school I wanted to attend on the East
Coast and my parents and I made a trip
to see it. I so badly wanted to love it.
I was so excited to be able to visit it
but, to my dismay, I ended up not lik-
ing it enough to take the offer.
Back home, I visited a few colleges
that I hadn’t been familiar with previ-
ously. I didn’t know any of their pro-
grams and, having been accepted,
thought it best to find out firsthand
how much I would like it as a student.
After a few “failed attempts,” I
stepped foot onto the college which I
will now attend and, cheesy as it
sounds, everything felt right. The
programs, the community, the weath-
er, the proximity to the airport. I felt
like I fit right in.
This brings me back to my main
idea for telling you this (arguably
crazy) story: what I recommend to all
students now embarking on this roller
coaster of a voyage. Don’t put limita-
tions on yourself. Explore all your
options, even if you think you know
exactly where you want to end up. I’m
so glad I did and I am so excited to
start this new chapter in my life. It
has been one crazy journey but, now
that I am at its tail end, I wish all you
incoming seniors luck and hope that
my sharing this story has helped you
in one way or another in searching for
your perfect college.

LOS ANGELES — Godzilla lives.
Sixty years after his introduction and
a decade after his last cinematic appear-
ance, the massive monster filled an
IMAX screen at Hollywood’s TCL
Chinese Theatre on Thursday.
The new film, titled simply
“Godzilla,” brings the aquatic creature
out of Japan and into the United States,
with Honolulu, Las Vegas and San
Francisco among his destinations. And
he’s not the only monster in the mix.
Two other Massive Unidentified
Terrestrial Organisms — MUTOs —
threaten the planet.
Starring Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth
Olson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the
film was made by lifelong Godzilla fans.
It’s a realistic take on how the world and
its military might respond to an inva-
sion by larger-than-life creatures.
“We were trying to put more into it
than just a simple monster movie,”
director Gareth Edwards said after the
screening. “Because the original was
definitely a metaphor for Hiroshima and
Nagasaki and a very serious film, so we
were inspired to try and reflect that.”
In the 1954 original, Godzilla repre-
sented the destructive threat of nuclear
power after the United States unleashed
it on Japan during World War II. In
2014, Godzilla and the other monsters
feed on radiation, so nations with
nuclear arms are targets.
“The West ... we police the world and
go, ‘You can’t have nuclear power. You
can’t have it. But we can have it, and we
have nuclear weapons,’ “ Edwards said.
“And what if there were a creature that
existed, creatures that were attracted to
radiation? Suddenly the tables would be
turned, and we’d be desperately trying to
get rid of that stuff.”
Edwards first introduced the film at
Comic-Con, the annual San Diego pop-
culture festival, two years ago. He said
making the movie was a “once in a mil-
lion lifetimes opportunity.”

and of the man-made and natural

engaging exhibits and hands-on

from headwaters in Lake Itasca,
Minnesota, to the Gulf of Mexico.
Species include paddlefish dating
back to the dinosaur era, five-foot-
long nose gars, an alligator,
otters, beavers, a young black
nosed shark, a puffer fish, smiling
cow rays, a green moray eel and a
Northwest Pacific coast giant
white octopus. What surprises vis-
itors? How much there is to expe-
rience and explore and the multi-
media presentations.”
The largest of the museum artifacts
is the 277-foot-long William M.
Black, a 1934 steam-propelled,
side-wheel dustpan dredge. The
Black, designated a National
Historic Landmark, is one of only
four preserved historic U.S. Corps
of Engineers river dredges.
Floating next to the Black is its
tender boat, Tavern, a 43-foot-
long diesel towboat. The muse-
um’s extensive small-craft collec-
tion, documenting the small boats
on the Mississippi River through-
out the 19th and 20th centuries,
includes a 1905 leisure boat, a
1908 birch bark canoe, and a 1929
fishing flatboat.
Jolliet and Marquette, Lewis and
Clark, Abraham Lincoln, Mark
Twain and Louis Armstrong. The
museum’s National Rivers Hall of
Fame honors those who have made
significant contributions related
to America’s rivers and river indus-
tries, including pathfinders,
builders, inventors, artists, writ-
ers and musicians. Visitors can
immerse themselves in the keel-
boat audio exhibit, enjoy the
steamboat invention theater and
steer barges in a modern towboat
pilothouse simulator.
Museum Conservation Biologist
and Educator Chris Stangl said:
“The reaction of our visitors can
be summarized by these three let-
ters ... ”WOW.” This amazed excit-
ed reaction springs from sources
as diverse as the backgrounds of
our visitors. International visi-
tors are often most “WOWed” by
the scope and biological diversity
nurtured by the river. The “WOW”
reaction from our local visitors
typically results from the realiza-
tion of the biological and histori-
cal gem they have been living
near for years. From the animals
and biological import of the
Mississippi to the industrial
importance and rich history, the
facets of this amazing gem hold at
least one WOWfor every visitor. ”

lyrics. Musical theater fans will find some
songs with subtle references to other
Broadway hits like “South Pacific” in
“(There Is Nothing Like) The Brain,”
“Annie” in “Together Again for the First
Time” and “Fiddler on the Roof” in “Life,
Then there’s the direct use of an Irving
Berlin hit, “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” which
becomes a full-out, tap-dancing production
number choreographed by Jennifer
Gorgulho. Her work, so well executed by the
ensemble and principals throughout the
show, is inspired by the original Broadway
director/choreographer, Susan Stroman.
Klein’s director’s notes say that when he
saw the original Broadway production in
2007, he didn’t think it could be done in a
regional theater because it needs “specific
actors with impeccable comic timing, giant
sets and a million costumes. In short, it
requires a giant budget.”
Well, now the show is on a regional, non-
professional stage without a huge budget,
yet artistic creativity and an abundantly tal-
ented cast have allayed his concerns.
Kuo-Hao Lo’s simple yet evocative sets
easily adapt to frequent scene changes.
Lighting by Carolyn Foot and sound by
Grant Huberty enhance the often eerie
moods, while Shannon Maxham’s costumes
reflect both the era and the characters’ per-
sonalities. Musical director Matthew Mattei
leads the mostly satisfactory orchestra.
As Frederick, Ennis is seemingly indefati-
gable, singing, dancing and acting his way
through this demanding role with nary a
misstep. Whittemore’s Inga is not only
sexy but also multi-talented, as seen in the
yodeling she does in “Roll in the Hay.”
McDaniel’s not-too-bright Igor is always
amusing. And when it comes to comic tim-
ing, no one can beat Piccone as Frau
Blücher. A longtime favorite of local the-
ater, she can evoke peals of laughter from
her silences and her expressive face, even
when it’s deadpan.
Reed as the monster meets the physical
requirement with his imposing, NBA-like
height along with some agile dancing and
operatic vocal abilities seen in his later
scenes. Stark as Elizabeth is an assured
The men’s and women’s ensembles also
are excellent as they sing, dance and portray
all the extra characters needed in this show.
The two-act, nearly three-hour “Young
Frankenstein” is an ambitious undertaking,
but Palo Alto Players has surmounted its
challenges to stage a thoroughly enjoyable
evening of musical theater.

Trooper deaths show
challenge of patrolling state
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The shooting
deaths of two Alaska State Troopers devas-
tated their colleagues, who face the same
dangers and vulnerabilities as they patrol a
tough terrain and remote villages dotted
throughout the state.
“This will take us a long time to heal,”
trooper Col. James Cockrell said Friday.
“The department is totally focused more on
the families involved. This is a tragedy for
them. It’s totally unexpected.”
The slayings of Trooper Gabriel “Gabe”
Rich, 26, and Sgt. Patrick “Scott”
Johnson, 45, on Thursday in the isolated
community of Tanana underscored the chal-
lenges law enforcement faces in this huge
state. Like many troopers assigned to
patrol multiple villages, Rich and Johnson
were not based in the interior community
of 238 people.

to) at grave cost to himself. But far from
being showered in the thanks of a grateful
nation, he was branded and re-branded a
most-wanted villain for his service. He had
no choice but to go on the lam.
Viewers — like his fictional pursuers on
“24” — might reasonably have given up
on ever seeing Jack again.
But on “24: Live Another Day,” he is
nabbed by the CIA shortly after 11 a.m.,
London time, as this real-time, sequential
drama erupts with the first of a dozen
episodes that will carry the saga to a
breathless resolution 12 hours later in the
same hectic day.
Noted: Past “24” seasons ran 24 hours,
hence the series’ title. So “12” might have
been a more appropriate, if lame-sound-
ing, name for this miniseries, which pre-
mieres Monday at 8 p.m. EDT with two
episodes, spanning the period from 11
a.m. to 1 p.m.
Afew possible spoilers follow.
Returning as the intrepid, long-suffering
Bauer is Kiefer Sutherland, whose far more
upbeat post-”24” drama, “Touch,” was
axed a year ago after just two seasons.
Also back is Mary Lynn Rajskub as mar-
velously mopey Chloe O’Brian. Bauer’s
former Counter-Terrorism Unit running
buddy has had her share of tribulations of
late, including torture and charges of trea-
son as well as a severe Goth makeover.
And also back, remarkably, is Kim
Raver, who, as Bauer’s former heartthrob
Audrey, was last seen in the conclusion of
Season 6 in a coma from which she was not
expected to emerge. But there is no happy
reunion in store for Jack. It’s quite the
opposite, even though he — ever the
trickster — deliberately contrives to be
captured by authorities.
What’s Jack’s game? He’s gotten wind
that James Heller, previously U.S. defense
secretary but now the nation’s chief execu-
tive (played by the returning William
Devane), is targeted for assassination
while in London for a summit meeting.
Still the driven do-gooder, Jack is hell-
bent on foiling this plan. But it requires
him to resurface and tangle with CIA offi-
cials (played by Benjamin Bratt and
Yvonne Strahovski) as well as President
Heller’s chief of staff (Tate Donovan), who
is now married to — wait for it — Audrey,
after having seen her through her miracu-
lous recovery.
“Jack Bauer is a traitor and a psy-
chopath,” he seethes, proposing that it’s
Bauer who is out to kill the president.
Such is the plight of Jack Bauer. He’s so
heroic, yet so misunderstood — except by
“24” fans who will surely welcome him
back with open arms. After all, he has
served us, too. He saw us through a decade
of high alert.
It’s worth recalling that “24” premiered
in fall 2001. It was hatched as scripted
drama’s answer to the red-hot new reality
genre spawned by “Survivor.” Then, just
weeks before “24” was set to be launched,
everything changed. What had been creat-
ed as slick TV escapism seemed, quite to
the contrary, too close for comfort.
Fortunately, “24” overcame the specter
of real-life tragedy while managing to
meet the challenge of its snugly packaged
format. On the strength of its ambition
and inventiveness, it prevailed as a wildly
dramatized view of American response to
terrorism during each frenzied season’s
daylong window.
But however violent and grisly (and it
was both), “24” saw its shock value wan-
ing by its final season. Guns, nerve gas,
bombs, bioweapons and more — the show
had run through the playbook of awful
ways a terrorist could put the hurt on civi-
lized society.
Recall that during the first season’s
“day,” a major mission for Bauer was to
prevent the assassination of a presidential
Like that old saying “Plus ca change ...,”
here’s another political bigwig in peril.
And on “24: Live Another Day,” the series’
conventions have been dusted off and
revived for its well-versed fans: the non-
stop action, the jittery camera, the pound-
ing percussive music score and the clank-
ing on-screen clock.
Yes, Bauer barks his signature “DAMN-
it!” And at the end of the second hour,
there’s a dandy presto-chango twist, all
the more delightful for its after-the-fact
There may be genuinely shocking
moments in the episodes to come. But if
there aren’t, that’s OK. In our twin roles as
citizens and viewers, we have lost a hunk
of our innocence since fall 2001. How
could “24” in its storytelling hold a candle
t o
the dread we have internalized since
It probably cannot, and need not try.
Rather than rousing us, “24” these days
has the opposite effect: It lulls us with
Bauer’s beleaguered, uncomplaining
efforts to lend a helping hand.
Bottom line, there’s comfort for us view-
ers with Jack Bauer back on the scene. It’s
pretty much guaranteed: On “Live Another
Day” he’ll have another bad day. But we’ll
all have a blast watching.

By Paul Larson
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

By Lynn Elber
LOS ANGELES — Episode No.
550 of Fox’s “The Simpsons” was
put together Lego brick by brick,
in a CGI manner of speaking.
Using computer-generated spe-
cial effects, the town of
Springfield and its residents have
been reimagined in the style of the
famed plastic toys for Sunday’s
episode, “Brick Like Me” (8 p.m.
It’s a tart title — a play on
“Black Like Me,” the book — for a
sweet episode, one that combines
CGI and the show’s traditional ani-
mation to shake up Homer
Simpson’s world and teach him a
lesson about parenting.
Homer (voiced by Dan
Castellaneta) has morphed from
his familiar pudgy self into a real
hard-body: a square-shaped, bullet-
headed Lego man. He’s still yel-
low, as are wife Marge (Julie
Kavner), the kids and the rest of
the town’s inhabitants, but all eas-
ily and painlessly disassembled.
With the box-office hit “The
Lego Movie,” a newly launched
“Simpsons” Lego toy line and now
the TVepisode, it could be suspect-
ed that much corporate plotting
was involved.
“People are probably looking at
it going, ‘All this fits and it’s a
plan.’ No, it was just the love of
Lego” and creativity, not cross-
promotion, Al Jean, “The
Simpsons” longtime executive
producer, told a teleconference this
“Yes, so all the cross-promotion
was just gravy, delicious gravy, ”
joked Matt Selman, an executive
producer and co-writer, with Brian
Kelley, of the Lego episode.
Lego was consulted, he said, and
a Fox spokeswoman said the toy
maker paid for promotional con-
In an interview, Selman said he
and Kelley started working on the
plot in 2012, before they were
aware of the movie or the spinoff
“We had to have a story worthy
of this much technical ambition. If
it didn’t have heart, character and
feeling, all the jokes about some-
one taking off their head and kick-
ing it into the distance weren’t
going to play,” he said.
Unlike “The Lego Movie,”
which employed stop-action ani-
mation along with CGI, “The
Simpsons” stayed away from
three-dimensional figures that
would have increased the difficulty
of production, Selman said. Its
smooth-faced CGI characters also
vary from the sculpted ones that
are part of Lego’s “Simpsons” toy
The “old-school” cylinder heads
are classic Lego and were right for
the show and the story, Selman
said. It’s an especially family
friendly one, he said, since the toy
connection is expected to draw a
number of younger viewers and
there was Lego’s image to consid-
“We had to tune down Homer and
Marg’s amour” in a scene between
the characters’ Lego incarnations,
he said.
Anumber of other familiar faces
make appearances, including the
Rev. Lovejoy (Harry Shearer),
seen preaching the Lego version
of the Bible’s creation story.
Selman regrets a pair of characters
who didn’t enter toy land.
“I wish we could have done a
Lego Itchy and Scratchy,” he said
in the phone conference, then
tossed it to his colleague. “Al, you
think they’ll let us do another
“Sure, let me just hold a bake
sale,” Jean replied.

ney, which involved abuse of substances.
“My parents had moved up to the Bay
Area in the early ’90s,” said Camarillo,
who was raised in Southern California. “I
was part of a recovery group of residents in
San Mateo County that were meeting and
that group was the impetuous of the Latino
A group of residents got together
because there weren’t bilingual jail alter-
native programs in the county and they
sought to change that. The group, based
out of South San Francisco, had its first
residential substance use program in 1991
through county funds. It now operates
licensed facilities in San Mateo, San
Francisco and Tulare counties providing
residential and outpatient substance abuse
treatment for men, women and young preg-
nant women; transitional sober living
environment for both men and women; a
health education and prevention programs
for teenagers; case management; safety net
services and public awareness.
“The message we give to clients is no
different to staff, board and what we want
to represent in the community,” said
Camarillo, who has a master’s in theology
from Vanguard University in Southern
California. “We operate with traditional
values of Latino community and culture.
We’re operated under the premise of well-
ness and balance. If we practice balance in
the area of the community, then wellness
comes. That’s what we try to promote
within the community. Part of being out of
balance is if you’re stressed, you try to
find relief in drugs and alcohol.”
Latinos are facing many challenges
today, Camarillo said.
“Immigration is a challenge that has
always been a great struggle for Latinos
for a number of reasons,” she said.
“Splitting of families of having undocu-
mented status — there’s a daily stress that
comes with that. The uncertainty of ‘I
don’t know when I come home if my par-
ents are going to be there.’”
Poverty is another landmark issue with
which to contend, along with being over-
represented in criminal justice system, she
said. Many of those cases are related to
substance abuse, she said.
“The state goes to the most extensive
way of dealing with these situations —
incarceration,” she said. “It could be dealt
within the community with substance
abuse counseling.”
Ini t i al l y, the target community was
Latinos, but now the group attracts every
race and ethnicity, she said.
“We’re very multicultural,” she said.
Camarillo, who began as the executive
director in 2004, splits her time between
the Central Valley and Hayward since not
she helps out with programming down
south as well. In her spare time, she
enjoys salsa dancing and working with
leather, along with traveling and spending
time with her four dogs.
One of the biggest challenges for the
group is finances, she said. The organiza-
tion operates on an annual $2.3 million
“We always have to justify why this
works,” she said. “If you’re a community
organization, then you don’t have the
financial means to go through the systems
that bring evidence-based practices. It’s
always been a challenge to validate a com-
munity-based organization.”
Despite the challenges, Camarillo said
she loves her job since she gets to see the
rewards of the work she does and she con-
siders it to be an honor to be able to
impact her community.
“It’s an honor to serve our community, ”
she said. “It’s a privilege to be able to see
people come off the street reminding me
that we have to do what we do. I see people
clean and sober today that are becoming
accomplished professionals.”
There are some changes on the way for
the organization. It plans to expand to its
Bay Area programming with youth servic-
es like pregnancy prevention and promot-
ing higher education.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-

jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
