Tai Wu askedto make changes
By Angela Swartz
Millbrae’s new Tai Wu restaurant is
getting a chance to clean up its act
after a string of complaints from near-
by residents about noise and parking,
but neighbors simply want the restau-
rant gone.
The Chinese restaurant at 300 El
Camino Real has until the May 19
Planning Commission meeting to
build a 7-foot high by 20-foot long
wall as a sound barrier and establish
long-term parking lot leases. If the
commission is unsatisfied with the
results, it has the option to not extend
Tai Wu’s 90-day temporary occupancy
permit, which would shut it down for
period of time. The most invasive
option is rescinding the conditional
use permit, which would cause the
restaurant to begin the process of reap-
plying for the permit.
The three-story dim sum eatery was
supposed to have 111 parking spots
and valet parking available to cus-
tomers, but much of the parking is off
site and customers tend to park in the
nearby neighborhood. Last week, the
city issued a cease and desist order to
discontinue use of two air intake units
that were permitted for installation on
the restaurant roof, but were instead
installed without permission on the
roof of the utility building. Tai Wu
appealed and has a public hearing on
the appeal 6 p.m. May 16, according
to a staff report.
Neighbor Samar Noureddine, who
lives behind the restaurant, is not sat-
isfied with the wall solution and said
she doesn’t want to have to come back
to the Planning Commission again
after Tai Wu builds the wall and say she
still hears the noise. She described the
noise as being similar to someone
mowing the lawn 24 hours a day.
Neighbors still unsatisfied with new Millbrae restaurant’s conditions, parking
Tai Wu at 300 El Camino Real has been the source of frustration
for Millbrae residents who say patrons and employees are
parking in their neighborhoods.

Rhett, a golden retriever and Labrador retriever mix, works with kids at North Elementary School.
By Angela Swartz
Special needs students in
Hillsborough are getting a helping
hand of the canine variety with the
school’s new facility dog Rhett.
Rhett, a golden retriever and
Labrador retriever mix, was trained at
the nonprofit Canine Companions for
Independence with Alice Bliquez, spe-
cial education teacher in the Learning
Center program at North Elementary
School back in January. The classroom
aide is now a staple for the class of six
students in grades K-5, assisting with
communication, fine motor and social
“Rhett is very helpful with the kids,”
Bliquez said. “He’s very calming. It
teaches them responsibility and inde-
pendence. It’s also an outlet around
school to meet people.”
Rhett was trained for two years prior
to beginning his work at the school in
up to 40 commands. Rhett was raised at
a correctional facility in Portland,
Oregon, where inmates were taught
how to train him.
Now, Rhett assists the students.
Students utilize speech generating
devices called talkers in class, along
with sign language and books with
pictures. Rhett helps with calendar and
attendance using his retrieve and push
commands. The kids brush him to
strengthen their fine motor skills.

There’s a new assistant sheriff in town.
Sheriff Greg Munks is restructuring his
department to add a second assistant sheriff
to the ranks and naming Capt. Tom
Gallagher to the position. The Board of
Supervisors Tuesday signed off on the plan
and the Sheriff’s Office announced
Gallagher’s naming later that day.
Both Gallagher and current Assistant
Sheriff Trish Sanchez will report to
Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos.
The new assistant sheriff will oversee
operations, investigations and homeland
security. Sanchez will continue handling
the corrections division, jail planning unit
and technology services.
The department reorganization is a
response to the office’s significant growth
as of late due in large part to contracting
with several cities in San Mateo County
including San Carlos,
Half Moon Bay and
Millbrae. Other factors
include significant new
projects like the Maple
Street Correctional
Center currently under
construction in Redwood
City and the Coyote
Point shooting range.
Looking to better han-
dle the expansion, the
Sheriff’s Office hired Management Partners
for a full review of its organization and com-
parisons to other how other counties assign
their workload.
The new structure will create “balance”
and give Bolanos a “true administrative
management role,” Munks told the board in
seeking its approval to create the assistant
sheriff slot and eliminate a lieutenant posi-
The undersheriff’s umbrella will be both
assistant sheriffs, the crime lab director, the
professional standards bureau lieutenant and
the administration and finance director.
The change also includes splitting the
operations division based on geography
into a north command for the northern and
coastal part of the county and south com-
The new assistant sheriff will make a
monthly salary of between approximately
$11,228 and $14,034.
Gallagher, a San Mateo County native,
graduated from Serra High School and has a
bachelor’s of arts degree from Union
Institute and University. He also graduated
from the Los Angeles Police Department’s
Leadership Program and since 1987 has
been with the Sheriff’s Office where his
assignments have included corrections,
patrol and investigations.

Although judicial candidates are limited
in what they can say about potential future
cases and rulings, the two vying for one of
two open seats on the June ballot shared
more general views and suggestions on
local criminal justice.
Court Commissioner Susan Greenberg
and attorney Jeff Hayden are seeking the
seat vacated earlier this year by the federal
appointment of Judge Beth Labson Freeman
to the U.S. District Court in San Jose.
Greenberg and Hayden sat down individu-
ally with the Daily Journal for an in-office
interview and also provided answers to the
following five questions to allow each can-
didate a forum for sharing their own words
prior to the June 3 election. Each was asked
to keep the answers to approximately 50
words and were only edited for grammar or
Do you favor opti ons to pre-tri al
i ncarcerati on such as el ectro n i c
moni tori ng? Why or why not?
Greenberg: I favor many options
including release on own recognizance,
supervised release on own recognizance and
electronic monitoring. These options
should be implemented on a case by case
basis. The jails are overcrowded and we
should tailor these pretrial remedies as
appropriate to each individual situation.
Hayden: The jail population includes
people awaiting trial; realignment has fur-
ther crowded the jail. In setting the bail
amount, the court considers the nature of the
charge, the likelihood that defendant
returns to court and public safety. Setting
additional terms, electronic monitoring or
drug counseling, bears upon public safety.
How can the court calendars be
more effici ent to keep cases on track
in a timely manner?
Greenberg: The significant budget
decrease for the trial courts is the major
issue here. Our court is very efficient. I
believe we can improve efficiency by keep-
ing continuances to a minimum and com-
bining some of the calendars and cases as
often as possible.
Hayden: Modest changes would allow
existing resources to be better utilized.
Electronic filing can minimize delays at the
clerk’s office. Utilizing judges pro tem
within courtrooms awaiting jury trial
assignments can clear short matters. Use of
part-time staff lent by firms can clear back-
logs in filing papers and issuing orders.
How do you view a judge’s di scre-
tion to discount a defendant’s pri or
criminal strikes during sentencing?
Greenberg: This is clearly permitted by
case law, based on criminal history and the
circumstances of the present offense. It has
to be done on a case by case basis and can be
appropriate for certain cases. The court’s
discretion here is critical.
Hayden: Appellate court decisions prom-
ulgated guidelines when to exercise such
discretion in the interest of justice. Factors
include the age and nature of the strike, how
long has the person been crime free, the
nature of the current offense as well as miti-
gating factors; however, public safety must
always come first.
What rol e do mi ti gati ng ci rcum-
stances l i ke i mmi grati on or pot en-
ti al l oss of a prof essi onal l i cense
pl ay i n sentenci ng?
Greenberg: These are collateral conse-
quences that traditionally
haven’t been and generally
are not considered by the
court at sentencing.
However, they can be
looked at on a case by case
basis when appropriate.
Hayden: In appropriate
circumstances where the interests of justice
so indicate, but even then only when public
safety is not endangered. Sentencing con-
siderations include ensuring public safety,
deterrence and the interest of justice, all of
which might be impacted when a person suf-
fers consequences not contemplated within
the black letter law.
How have the courts responded to
real i gnment?
Greenberg: Our court has responded
well. Sentencing is being handled appropri-
ately. Our court has added a weekly calendar
to hear Parole and Post Release Community
Supervision revocation cases. I have been
given this assignment by the presiding
judge of our court.
Hayden: Inadequately. Realignment
allows a court to split a sentence between
jail and supervision, much as time had been
split between prison and parole. The court
should — but has yet to — incorporate reha-
bilitative conditions during or after serving
jail time, so a defendant doesn’t drift back
to the pattern of felonious behavior.

Proposition 41 on the June ballot asks
California voters whether $600 million in
existing veterans bonds should be redi-
rected to build, renovate and acquire apart-
ments and multifamily housing for low-
income veterans.
At least half the money would be ear-
marked for “extremely low-income” veter-
ans, defined as about $14,000 a year for a
single person in California. All tenants
would earn less than 80 percent of the
average income adjusted for family size
and county, which translates to about
$38,000 a year for a single person in
The state would use general tax revenue
to repay the principal and interest, which
the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s
Office estimates will amount to $50 mil-
lion over 15 years.
Supporters, including former Defense
Secretary Leon Panetta and veterans
groups, say the measure honors up to
45,000 veterans returning to the state
from war — some without jobs or homes.
The Assembly voted 78-0 and the Senate
voted 36-0 to place the measure for the
Donors include the International
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the

Council. They had contributed $44,000 as

Gary Wesley, a Mountain View attorney,
was the only one to submit an opposing
argument for the secretary of state’s voter
guide. He said there was potential for mis-
management and waste but also applauded
the measure’s intent, saying the best way
to prevent homelessness among veterans
is to avoid “the unnecessary commitment
of ground troops into combat.”
California has about 15,000 homeless
veterans, according to a January 2013 fed-
eral government survey cited by the
Legislative Analyst’s Office.

California pilot who crashed was fit to perform
FAIRFIELD — Apilot who crashed and died while perform-
ing a stunt at a Northern California air show had recently
passed a skills test that included his flying
routines, the head of an air show trade
association said.
International Council of Air Shows’
President John Cudahy said the 77-year-
old Eddie Andreini passed the test just a few
weeks before Sunday’s crash. Cudahy told
the Sacramento Bee that Andreini was test-
ed in over 60 areas and was judged to be
mentally and physically fit for the stunts
he performed.
Andreini was flying upside-down and low to the ground in an
acrobatic maneuver during the “Thunder Over Solano” air
show. His vintage biplane hit the ground and burst into
Howard Plagens of the National Transportation Safety
Board said his team is trying to determine what caused the
crash, starting with an examination of the wreckage and
ground scars. They will also review the amount of time it took
for emergency crews to respond.
Witnesses said it seemed like a long time before fire crews
arrived at the scene of the crash at Travis Air Force Base in
Fairfield and wondered if the pilot died on impact or from the
ensuing fire. Base spokesman Jim Spellman said crews were
dispatched promptly and responded within a minute or two.
None of an estimated 85,000 spectators was injured.
Federal Aviation Administration records show Andreini was
the registered owner of the 1944 Stearman biplane, a World
War II-era plane commonly used to train pilots.
Andreini was trying to perform a maneuver known as “cut-
ting a ribbon” where the inverted plane flies close to the
ground so a knife attached to it can slice a ribbon.
In the investigation, Plagens said his team will review
videos of the crash, environmental factors and the pilot.
Police plan to talk with San Jose airport stowaway
SAN JOSE — Police said Tuesday they plan to interview a
California teen who stowed away on a Hawaii-bound flight two
weeks ago, surviving sub-freezing temperatures in the wheel
well of a jetliner as it crossed the Pacific Ocean.
The 15-year-old Somali immigrant flew back to California
over the weekend and was being cared for by Santa Clara
County Child Protective Services, San Jose police
spokesman Albert Morales said.
“There are plans to speak to him,” Morales said.
Yahya Abdi’s father, Abdilahi Yusuf, who drives a taxi in San
Jose, flew to Hawaii last week to bring his son home, but child
welfare officials there turned the boy over to their California
Law enforcement agents want to question Abdi about how he
climbed over a fence at San Jose International Airport then
got into the wheel well of a Boeing 767 and survived the April
20 flight at 35,000 feet despite the cold and a lack of oxygen.

Aqueduct was built in the 1960s. Now,
amid one of the worst droughts in his-
tory, state officials are considering an
audacious plan to send some of the
water back uphill.
State water engineers say using
pumps to reverse the flow of the aque-
duct would be a first in a drought. It
would also be a complex engineering
challenge that could cost millions of
Still, water agencies in the desper-
ately dry farmlands around Bakersfield
say the investment is worth it to keep
grapevines, pistachios and pomegran-
ate trees alive. Agencies as far north as
the San Francisco Bay Area are talking
about a similar project.
“There is no place on planet Earth
where an aqueduct is designed to go
backwards,” said Geoff Shaw, an engi-
neer with the state Department of
Water Resources who is reviewing the
proposal. “But they have a need for
water in a place where they can’t fulfil l
it, and this is their plan to fix it.”
The plan the department is evaluat-
ing was drawn up by five of the local
agencies, or districts, that sell irriga-
tion water to farmers. They would bear
the cost of the project, which they
have estimated at $1.5 million to $9.5
They hope to get approval from the
state in June and start pushing the
water uphill later in the summer.
Long celebrated as an engineering
marvel, the California Aqueduct is a
420-mile system of open canals and
massive pipelines that serves millions
of Californians, including those in the
state’s biggest population centers: the
San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles
and San Diego.
Under the plan, water districts would
be allowed to pump into the aqueduct
emergency water that they store in
underground reservoirs in Kern
County, about two hours north of Los
Angeles. That banked water and other
extra supplies would raise the level of
water within a small, closed section of
the aqueduct.
Then, pumps powered by diesel
engines would push the water over
locks and back upstream, against the
southward pull of gravity.
Water flows uphill?
Maybe, in drought

SAN FRANCISCO — The California
Supreme Court appeared reluctant
Tuesday to require large retailers to
keep a defibrillator in stores in case
customers suffer cardiac arrest.
During arguments involving a law-
suit against Target in the death of a cus-
tomer, Justice Marvin Baxter asked
how a store clerk would know a cus-
tomer was suffering cardiac arrest and
whether the device could be inappro-
priately used and cause more harm to a
shopper suffering another ailment.
“It may very well be that the good
intentions could backfire and do more
harm than good,” Baxter said.
The six other justices on the court
had similar concerns and tough ques-
tions for lawyers representing the fam-
ily of 49-year-old Mary Ann Verdugo
in a wrongful death lawsuit against
For two decades, an increasing num-
ber of public places in the U.S. have
been required to have automated exter-
nal defibrillators on hand. Airports,
casinos, schools, courthouses, fitness
centers, amusement parks and many
other facilities now have the devices
in case someone has sudden cardiac
The question Tuesday was whether
Target and other businesses should
have the devices that deliver a jolt of
electricity to a stalled heart.
Defibrillators can save lives if used
immediately after the onslaught of car-
diac arrest.
Verdugo suffered cardiac arrest while
shopping at a Target store in
California in 2008.
Target officials extended their condo-
lences to the Verdugo family, calling
the incident an unfortunate but unpre-
ventable tragedy.

Later this summer,the Obama administration plans to propose new regulations restricting gases
that come from existing coal-fired power plants.
By Seth Borenstein
WASHINGTON — Most Americans are
already feeling man-made global warming,
from heat waves to wild storms to longer
allergy seasons. And it is likely to get worse
and more expensive, says a new federal report
that is heating up political debate along with
the temperature.
Shortly after the report came out Tuesday,
President Barack Obama used several televi-
sion weathermen to make his point about the
bad weather news and a need for action to curb
carbon pollution before it is too late.
“We want to emphasize to the public, this
is not some distant problem of the future.
This is a problem that is affecting Americans
right now,” Obama told “Today” show weath-
ercaster Al Roker. “Whether it means
increased flooding, greater vulnerability to
drought, more severe wildfires — all these
things are having an impact on Americans as
we speak.”
Climate change’s assorted harms “are
expected to become increasingly disruptive
across the nation throughout this century and
beyond,” the National Climate Assessment
concluded, emphasizing the impact of too-
wild weather as well as simple warming.
Still, it’s not too late to prevent the worst
of climate change, says the 840-page report,
which the Obama administration is high-
lighting as it tries to jump-start often-stalled
efforts to curb heat-trapping gases. Said
White House science adviser John Holdren:
“It’s a good-news story about the many
opportunities to take cost-effective actions
to reduce the damage.”
Release of the report, the third edition of a
congressionally mandated study, gives
Obama an opportunity to ground his cam-
paign against climate change in science and
numbers, endeavoring to blunt the arguments
of those who question the idea and human
contributions to such changes. Later this
summer, the administration plans to propose
new regulations restricting gases that come
from existing coal-fired power plants.
Not everyone is persuaded.
Some fossil energy groups, conservative
think tanks and Republican senators immedi-
ately assailed the report as “alarmist.”
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell
of Kentucky said Obama was likely to “use
the platform to renew his call for a national
energy tax. And I’m sure he’ll get loud cheers
from liberal elites — from the kind of people
who leave a giant carbon footprint and then
lecture everybody else about low-flow toi-
Since taking office, Obama has not pro-
posed a specific tax on fossil fuel emissions.
He has proposed a system that caps emis-
sions and allows companies to trade carbon
pollution credits, but it has failed in
Republican Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana
said the report was supposed to be scientific
but “it’s more of a political one used to justi-
fy government overreach.” And leaders in the
fossil fuel industry, which is responsible for
a large amount of the heat-trapping carbon
dioxide, said their energy is needed and
America can’t afford to cut back.
“Whether you agree or disagree with the
report, the question is: What are you going to
do about it? To us that is a major question,”
said Charlie Drevna, president of the
American Fuel and Petrochemical
Manufacturers. He called the report
The report — which is full of figures, charts
and other research-generated graphics —
includes 3,096 footnotes referring to other
mostly peer-reviewed research. It was written
by more than 250 scientists and government
officials, starting in 2012. A draft was
released in January 2013, but this version
has been reviewed by more scientists, includ-
ing twice by the National Academy of
Sciences which called it “reasonable,” and “a
valuable resource.”
Federal report: Warming disrupts Americans’ lives
Wednesday • May 7, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
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

Creating A Circle Of Gratitude
By Saying Thank You
Monica Lewinsky opens
up on affair with Clinton
By Calvin Woodward
WASHINGTON — Monica Lewinsky says there’s no ques-
tion her boss — Bill Clinton — “took advantage” of her
when he was president.
But she says their affair was consensual and if there was
any abuse involved, it came afterward, when Clinton’s inner
circle tried to discredit her and the president’s opponents
used her as a political pawn.
The former White House intern, now 40, writes about her
life in the next issue of Vanity Fair magazine, out this
month. In released excerpts, she says she’s perhaps the first
Internet era scapegoat and wants to speak out on behalf of
other victims of online humiliation.
Her willingness to step forward may come at an inoppor-
tune time as former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton con-
siders running for president. Republicans have signaled they
don’t consider her husband’s scandal from the late 1990s out
of bounds in the realm of 2016-style political dialogue.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a likely GOP presidential con-
tender, answered criticisms of the Republican record on
women’s issues by saying in January that the last
Democratic president engaged in “predatory behavior” with
a woman, Lewinsky, who was 22 when her liaisons with
Clinton began in 1995.

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers look-
ing ahead to the November elections are
putting renewed focus on education,
tackling issues on Capitol Hill this
week ranging from expanding charter
schools to paying off student loan debt.
And, a House committee will examine
how higher education and college sports
might be affected by a regional National
Labor Relations Board ruling allowing
Northwestern University football play-
ers to unionize.
Voters rank education high among
issues of importance to them, and this
week’s activities are likely a nod to that.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor
has made expanding school choice
options a priority. Reflecting that
enthusiasm, the House as early as
Thursday will consider legislation that
would provide $300 million annually to
expand charter schools. It would con-
solidate two existing programs, provide
state grants to expand and replicate
high-quality charter schools and fund
the acquisition of buildings for the
schools. Charter schools typically use
taxpayer dollars but are run by outside
“America isn’t working when our stu-
dents do not have the opportunity to
attend a school that best fits their
needs,” Cantor said in a statement.
Even as many Democrats adamantly
oppose school vouchers, expanding
high-quality charter schools is an area
where the two sides have found some
common ground. The charter schools
bill, for example, has the support of
Rep. George Miller, a California law-
maker who is the ranking Democrat on
the House education committee. While
it appeared to have a strong chance of
House passage, its future was uncertain
in the Senate.
Student loans, the subject of some
contentious debate in 2013, are coming
up again in both the House and Senate.
With the doubling of interest rates
looming, Congress last year acted to
keep them at low level levels for now —
but linked those rates to the financial
markets. President Barack Obama had
trumpeted the issue in his 2012 re-elec-
tion bid, and the legislation passed with
bipartisan support.
Now, moving forward a Democratic
agenda focused on college costs leading
to the November election, Sen.
Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Tuesday
filed a bill co-sponsored by more than
20 fellow Democratic senators that
would open the door for potentially mil-
lions of federal loan recipients to refi-
nance that debt at the same rate as cur-
rent recipients. Undergraduates, for
example, qualify for loans at a 3.86 per-
centage rate.
Education gets topbilling on Capitol Hill
By Bradley Klapper
and Donna Cassata
WASHINGTON — House Democrats
opened the door Tuesday to participat-
ing in a special panel’s investigation
of the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya,
even if they see it as little more than an
election-year ploy by Republicans to
discredit the Obama administration and
motivate GOP voters.
Laying out her party’s conditions,
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said
Republicans must conduct interviews
and share information as part of their
new inquest into the Obama adminis-
tration’s response to the Sept. 11,
2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic
past that killed four Americans. She
called for the same number of
Democrats as Republicans on the
panel, a demand the GOP majority
immediately rejected.
“If this review is to be fair, it must be
truly bipartisan,” Pelosi, D-Calif.,
said in a statement. Later, she told
reporters that rank-and-file Democrats
are “suspicious of whatever the
Republicans are trying to do.”
With midterm elections looming
closer, Republicans are sharpening
their focus on the Benghazi attack that
killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens
and three other Americans. A vote to
authorize the probe is expected this
week. A senior GOP congressman has
issued a subpoena to Secretary of State
John Kerry to testify before a separate
committee. And the subject could sur-
face in multiple other congressional
hearings this week.
Democrats open door to taking part in Benghazi probe
“America isn’t working when
our students do not have the opportunity
to attend a school that best fits their needs.”

Galligan for controller
It would be great to have Joe
Galligan’s decades of accounting expe-
rience and civic service back in public
office. He exemplifies the integrity and
personal character we should have in
all of our representatives. We have
missed his limitless capacity for com-
petency for far too long.

Support Raigoza for controller
As a certified public accountant, I
learned that governmental accounting
differs greatly from company and
nonprofit accounting. The word “pub-
lic” in CPArefers to companies who
sell stock to the public and are sub-
ject to rules as set by the Financial
Accounting Standards Board. The
Governmental Accounting Standards
Board sets quite a different set of rules
for governmental accounting and
reporting. My experience in the pri-
vate sector did not prepare me for
governmental work.
I point this out because in the June
3 San Mateo County controller’s
election, there is only one candidate
that has the required government
accounting experience, Juan Raigoza
who has 13 years of experience in the
Controller’s Office and is currently
assistant county controller. For that
key reason, I support Juan Raigoza
for controller.

Raigoza for controller
As the June 3 elections approach,
many people might not vote, thinking
it’s just a primary and not all that
important. However, some contests are
for all the marbles and the June vote
tally will determine the winner.
One such election is for San Mateo
County controller. The controller
makes sure that each county depart-
ment spends taxpayers’ money in the
most efficient and responsible way
possible, much like a company’s chief
financial officer.
Juan Raigoza is the most qualified for
the position, having 13 years experi-
ence in the Controller’s Office, most
recently as the San Mateo County
assistant controller. Raigoza has the
required working knowledge across
many disciplines within the
Controller’s Office, leading the Payroll
and Information Systems Divisions
and as a senior internal auditor. Adding
to his broad range of experience and
expertise, Juan has served within state
government and the private sector.
An equally important fact, Juan is a
personable and decent person who will
work hard to continue fostering trans-
parency and openness, thus enhancing
the Controller’s Office.
In many California counties, con-
troller is an appointed position. If this
were true in San Mateo County,
Raigoza would be the hands-down
choice. Please join me “hands down”
and vote for Juan Raigoza as San
Mateo County controller.

Same-day delivery?
What’s the big deal?
There has recently been lots of media
coverage about Google and Amazon’s
Same-Day-Delivery service. I would be
glad to offer them some advice on this
topic as we have been offering a simi-
lar service for 76 years at my mom-
and-pop lumber yard.
And yes, $5 is not enough to charge
to deliver diapers. I would imagine that
fee will increase soon as it will impact
the bottom line in a negative way.
We deliver same day every day but
Sunday (we are closed Sunday) for free
when the order is over $500. We also
know your name most likely and my
customer knows me in many cases.
I would encourage the general public
to buy local and support your brick-
and-mortar stores before they go away.
You don’t want that to happen.

ampaigns for judicial seats in
the San Mateo County
Superior Court are rare.
Typically, judges run unopposed and
races only take place if there is a
retirement or if the sitting judge is
named to a new position. That is the
case with Office Four, vacated when
Judge Beth Freeman was appointed to
the federal bench.
Running for her seat are two people
with long histories in this county and
in law. Jeffrey Hayden is working hard
for this seat on the bench and has
many bright ideas on how to improve
it. He also has a good mindset for what
it takes to be a judge in this county.
However, Susan Greenberg is a more
natural fit for this position. With 14
years as a court commissioner under
her belt, she knows the position and
what it entails. Court commissioners
essentially act in the capacity as a
judge and are typically assigned to
lower level matters. It is that experi-
ence from which Greenberg will draw
when she takes this new position.
Still, there are other positives. While
both candidates emphasize the need for
efficiency created by an understanding
and adherence to the computer age and
paperless technology, Greenberg has
already put that into practice in our
duty as court commissioner.
When it comes to sentencing and a
philosophy behind it, both point to
the success of alternative sentencing
programs such as drug treatment and
mental health court but also suggest
there needs to be funding for it to work
effectively. Both seem open to alterna-
tives to jail such as ankle monitoring
but said the sheriff has the ultimate
decision. Greenberg seems more stead-
fast in not considering factors like
immigration or the loss of a profes-
sional license in sentencing but both
said it should be case by case.
Both also seem to have a sensitivity
to the people they will serve and
acknowledgment of the sometimes
strenuous tasks in front of a judge —
that decisions matter and can ultimate-
ly change lives. Hayden has a more
philosophical way of speaking and
seems to paint a broader picture when
making a point while Greenberg is
quick and very matter of fact when
making her points. That unhalted and
pragmatic approach has likely been
refined after 14 years behind the bench
as a court commissioner. In this type
of race, that straightforward approach
and experience is crucial for the posi-
tion. Greenberg deserves your vote.
Greenberg for Superior Court judge Through younger eyes
ooking through the eyes of a child, we see a
glimpse of tomorrow. ”
The second birthday of great-granddaughter Savannah
brought this 1987 column to mind that I wrote when old-
est granddaughter (Savannah’s mother) was almost 3.
Now, after six more grandchildren (the youngest almost
5), I have never failed to appreciate and marvel at the mir-
acle of childhood and how important it is to nurture chil-
dren thoughtfully and lovingly. But this is about grand-
parenting and what I learned early on from the grandchil-
dren. And I’m dedicating it
to Mothers’ Day.
When is the last time you
sat down on the ground and
watched a parade of ants or
tried to explain why birds
fly? When’s the last time
you played peek-a-boo or
noticed surprised stares
from the cars next to you
when you stopped at a
stoplight while singing
Old McDonald to a restless
toddler strapped in her car
Now I know why so many
grandparents go a little crazy. Watching and taking part in
a little child’s growth and development is a kind of spiri-
tual awakening, a chance to see again through the eyes of
a child and renew the child within ourselves. It is finding a
small connection with the miracle of life.
As Alice Miller wrote in “For Your Own Good”: “I can
imagine that some day we will regard our children not as
creatures to manipulate or to change but rather as messen-
gers from a world we once deeply knew, but which we have
long since forgotten, who can reveal to us more about the
true secrets of life and also our own lives, than our parents
were able to.”
Sometimes I feel the pull to cut back on my time with
my granddaughter and more ardently pursue some of the
other activities that I have put on hold in one degree or
another. Then I remember how quickly the past two and a
half years have gone and how soon it will be that she will
be going to school. Also, I remember all of the gifts she
gives me as we interact together.
Having the opportunity to again see the world through
the eyes of a baby, toddler and young child is a priceless
gift. Spending time enjoying a youngster brings out in a
grandparent whatever vestiges of physical youth that
remain. But, best of all, we can revive those long lost
childlike qualities that add zest and depth to living.
Alot of adults, especially of my generation, are overse-
rious, rigid and unable to loosen up. They have become so
imbued with “shoulds,” “oughts” and “have-tos” that they
are unable to allow the child within to come through —
even a little. We can recapture some of that reckless aban-
don, that joy and excitement, that curiosity of little chil-
dren who haven’t been spoiled or repressed or taught how
to be unhappy, if we allow it.
Being involved with a young child can also renew in us:
1). Wonder and awe. There are so many fascinating and
beautiful things in this world that as we “mature” we neg-
lect to appreciate. Being around a little child can bring
much of this back.
2). Full enjoyment of the moment. As adults we are
often unable to enjoy the present because of our fears,
inhibitions and our preoccupation with what may occur in
the future.
3). Creativity, imagination and fantasy. Uninhibited
children are naturally very creative and imaginative. But
as we grow up, these qualities are often squelched by all of
the authoritarian aspects of culture. Joining a small child
in fantasy and creation can open up whole new vistas for
4). Spontaneity and looseness. Humor, laughter and
silliness are essential to a well-rounded life. Humor and
laughter can be natural antidotes for depression, inertia
and ultra seriousness.
5). Honesty and directness. Too many adults live behind
a facade — long ago having lost the ability to be them-
selves; too busy protecting an image that they think oth-
ers expect of them. With children, you always know where
you stand.
6). The desire to fight for what is decent and good. The
urge to help other children who are not as fortunate as our
“Our young are our own new beginnings, a testament to
our trust in the future. The innocence, the delight, the
wonder, the vitality, the openness to life, of childhood are
necessary to us. Without them we lose touch with what is
young, and tender and creative within ourselves. When we
lose our patience with childhood, and our joy in it, we
lose touch with our inner selves, with our own growing
and becoming.” — Eda LeShan, “When Your Child Drives
You Crazy. ”

Big movers

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks fell
broadly on Tuesday as investors found
little to cheer in corporate earnings
reports. A plunge in Twitter led
Internet companies sharply lower.
Twitter dropped 18 percent after
company insiders were allowed to sell
stock for the first time since the ini-
tial public offering last year. Netflix
fell 5 percent, Facebook and Amazon,
4 percent each, and Google, 2 per-
Nine of the ten industry groups in
the Standard and Poor’s 500 fell, led
by a 1.4 percent drop in financial
companies after results for insurer
American International Group fell
short of analysts’ expectations.
Home builder stocks dropped after
more signs of weakness in the hous-
ing market.
Jack Ablin, chief investment offi-
cer of BMO Private bank, says
investors are worried that corporate
results over the next few quarters will
not justify the surge in prices from
the start of 2013.
“We ran ahead of fundamental valua-
tions, based on revenue and earn-
ings,” Ablin said. “Either revenue or
earnings have to catch up to the mar-
ket, or prices have to come down.”
The S&P 500 dropped 16.94 points,
or 0.9 percent, to 1,867.72. The Dow
Jones industrial average fell 129.53
points, or 0.8 percent, to 16,401.02.
The Nasdaq composite dropped 57.30
points, or 1.4 percent, to 4,080.76.
Even utilities — the biggest win-
ners so far this year, up 12 percent —
did not escape the selling. They
slipped 0.5 percent.
The drop in the S&P 500 and the
Dow Jones index was the third in four
trading days, and comes despite recent
upbeat news on the U.S. economy.
Payrolls increased by 288,000 last
month, the fastest pace since 2012.
Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist
of Mizuho Securities, noted that, for
all the job gains, wages for U.S.
workers have not increased signifi-
cantly, and that is holding back con-
sumer spending.
“People are getting weary of the
‘things-are-getting-better’ st ory, ”
said Steven Ricchiuto, chief econo-
mist of Mizuho Securities. “We’re hir-
ing more workers, but we’re not pay-
ing them more.”
Companies in the S&P 500 index
are expected to have increased earn-
ings by 2.6 percent in the first quar-
ter, according to S&P Capital IQ, a
data provider. That is down sharply
from the nearly 8 percent jump in the
fourth quarter.
U.S. home prices rose at a slightly
slower pace in the 12 months that
ended in March, according to data
provider CoreLogic. It was another
sign that weak sales, caused in part by
rising mortgage rates, have begun to
restrain the housing market’s sharp
price gains.
Home builder stocks fell broadly.
Ryland Group fell $1.08, or nearly 3
percent, to $37.68. D.R. Horton fell
55 cents, or nearly 3 percent, to
$22. 43.
American International Group fell
$2.18, or 4 percent, to $50.54. The
company reported revenue that was
below what investors expected due to
higher catastrophe losses and lower
investment income.
Investors were also keeping an eye
on the turmoil in Ukraine. In the city
of Donetsk, pro-Russia militants
armed with automatic rifles and
grenade launchers surrounded an
Interior Ministry base. And a planned
weekend referendum by pro-Russian
insurgents for autonomy and inde-
pendence in parts of eastern Ukraine
was denounced as “bogus” by the
Obama administration.
U.S. government bond prices rose
slightly. The yield on the 10-year
Treasury note fell to 2.59 percent
from 2.61 percent Monday. The yield
has fallen from 3 percent at the start
of January.
Stocks drop on mixed earnings; Twitter falls
By Michael Liedtke
SAN FRANCISCO — Alibaba Group,
China’s leading e-commerce company,
is dangling a deal that could turn into
one of the biggest IPOs in U.S. histo-
In a long-awaited move made
Tuesday, Alibaba filed papers for an ini-
tial public offering of stock seeking to
raise at least $1 billion.
The documents set the stage for the
technology industry’s biggest IPO pub-
lic offering since Twitter and its early
investors collected $1.8 billion in the
online short messaging service’s mar-
ket debut last fall.
Depending on investor demand for its
stock, Alibaba could try to raise more
money and even surpass the $16 billion
that Facebook raised in its IPO two
years ago.
For now, Alibaba isn’t specifying
how much stock will be sold in the IPO,
or setting a price range or saying which
exchange its stock will trade on. Those
details will emerge as the IPO progress-
es. The process is likely to take three to
four months to complete before
Alibaba’s shares begin trading.
The rise of e-commerce in China has
given millions of households wider
access to clothes, books and consumer
electronics in a society that in the
1980s still required ration tickets for
some supermarket items. That was aided
by Alibaba’s launch of an online pay-
ment system, Alipay, which filled the
gap for the shoppers who lacked credit
Still growing at an explosive rate,
online shopping is forecast by consult-
ing firm McKinsey to triple from 2011
levels to $400 billion a year by 2015.
Alibaba didn’t choose an optimal
time to go public. Several Internet
company stocks that soared last year
amid high hopes have plummeted this
year as investors reassess their
prospects. Twitter Inc. has been among
the hardest hit. Since hitting a peak of
$74.73 late last year, the company’s
shares have lost more than half their
value. They closed Tuesday at $31.85,
just slightly above their $26 IPO price.
Despite the skittish conditions for
Internet stocks, most analysts expect
Alibaba’s IPO to bring in at least $10
billion, and sell its stock at a price that
will give the 15-year-old company a
market value of $150 billion to $200

Disney 2Q earnings
beat Street, helped by ‘Frozen’
LOS ANGELE — Disney on Tuesday posted second-quar-
ter earnings that beat Wall Street forecasts, helped by the
home video sales of blockbuster movies “Frozen” and
“Thor: The Dark World.”
Both films showed the power of buying multibillion-
dollar content brands. “Thor” comes from Disney’s $4 bil-
lion purchase of Marvel Entertainment in 2009. “Frozen”
was a direct result of adding creative talent from Pixar after
Disney bought it for $7.4 billion in 2006.
When combined with its $4 billion acquisition of
Lucasfilm last year and the release of three more install-
ments in the “Star Wars” franchise starting in December
2015, Disney CEO Bob Iger said he expects the motion-
picture business to grow, fueled by international sales,
bucking the industrywide decline in disc sales and a low-
growth domestic theatrical market.
“The strategy of making branded movies is definitely
working, and I think that we really are just seeing the
beginnings of it in terms of their impact on the compa-
ny,” Iger said.
Intel, PC makers broaden
support for Chromebooks
SAN FRANCISCO — Another wave of laptop computers
running on Google’s Chrome operating system will be
hitting stores this summer in the latest challenge to
Microsoft’s dominant Windows franchise.
The latest line of Chromebooks unveiled Tuesday run on
a new generation of faster Intel microprocessors that
don’t devour as much battery power. The machines will be
shipped by major personal computer makers such as
Lenovo Group, Acer, Dell, ASUS and Toshiba. They will
sell for $300 to $400.
The widening selection of Chromebooks reflects the
building momentum for Google Inc.’s attempt to create a
compelling alternative to Windows-powered machines
and Apple Inc.’s Mac computers.
Intel Corp. and all the PC makers embracing
Chromebooks also are longtime Microsoft Corp. partners
that helped make Windows so influential and lucrative dur-
ing the past two decades.
Twitter stock slumps as lock-up expires
NEWYORK — Twitter’s stock sank to an all-time low
after a post-IPO lock-up period preventing employees and
early investors from selling expired on Tuesday.
Lock-up periods prevent company insiders from selling
stock following an initial public offering. CEO Dick
Costolo and co-founders Jack Dorsey and Evan Williams
have said that they had no plans to sell their stock when
the lock-up expired, 180 days after Twitter’s initial public

TRENTON, N.J. — Germany’s Bayer
plans to buy U.S.-based Merck & Co.’s
consumer health business, creating a
combined medicine cabinet of house-
hold names from Bayer’s aspirin to
Merck’s Claritin allergy pills.
The $14.2 billion deal announced
Tuesday would vault Bayer AG atop
the nonprescription medicine busi-
ness across North and Latin
America. It would make Bayer No. 1
worldwide in skin and gastrointesti-
nal products, a strong No. 2 in the
huge cold and allergy category, and
No. 3 in pain relievers.
“We are combining two highly com-
plementary businesses with virtually
no overlap that will improve our prod-
uct position over multiple categories,”
Marijn Dekkers, Bayer’s CEO, said on
a conference call with journalists.
Merck, widely considered the most
research-driven U.S. pharmaceutical
company, would divest a slow-grow-
ing business it inherited in 2009 when
it bought Schering-Plough Corp. to
get its experimental prescription med-

OAKLAND — Mark Jackson came to the
Golden State Warriors talking big and
brash. He promised playoff appearances and
championships, and he delivered plenty of
wins along the way.
Away from the court, though, Jackson
never backed down from doing things how
he wanted. His inability to mesh with man-
agement — and management’s inability to
mesh with Jackson — increasingly over-
shadowed his success —
and ultimately cost him
his job.
The Warriors fired
Jackson after three sea-
sons Tuesday, ending the
franchise’s most success-
ful coaching tenure in the
past two decades but also
one filled with drama and
“Obviously it was not made exclusively
on wins and losses,” Warriors owner Joe
Lacob said.
Lacob and general manager Bob Myers
both thanked Jackson, saying he helped
make the Warriors a more attractive fran-
chise. But Myers said the decision to dis-
miss Jackson was “unanimous” among the
team’s executives — though still not easy
— in part because the Warriors want a coach
who can “develop a synergy” with every-
body in basketball operations.
Jackson’s time with the Warriors will be
remembered for the way he helped turn a
perennially losing franchise into a consis-
tent winner and the bold
and bombastic way in
which he did it.
He guaranteed Golden
State would make the
playoffs in his first sea-
son, then finished 23-36
after the NBA labor lock-
out. The Warriors went
47-35 last season and had
a memorable run to the

a Dylan Arsenault single in the top of the seventh inning. The Mustangs held on to beat
Aragon 7-6 and remain in first place in the PAL OceanDivision, while the Dons fell to second.
By Nathan Mollat
Four baseball teams in the Peninsula Athletic
League’s Ocean Division entered the final week
of the regular season in a tie for first place,
including Capuchino and Aragon.
The Dons hosted the Mustangs Tuesday and
were on the verge of staying in at least a tie for
first, but Capuchino turned the tables.
Down 6-3 after five innings, the Mustang
scored twice in the sixth and two more in the
seventh to snatch a 7-6 victory and drop the
Dons into second place.
“It started from the first pitch and lasted to the
last out. It was a nail-biter,” said Capuchino
manager Matt Wilson. “It’s baseball. You never
know what’s going to happen.”
In a game full of heroes, sophomore right
fielder Dylan Arsenault provided the final hero-
ic effort. Appearing in just his second game
since being called up from the frosh-soph team,
Arsenault took a 3-2 fastball from Aragon
reliever Chris Davis and stroked a single up the
middle, driving in Anthony Orcholski from
second with the winning run.
“It’s probably my first (game-winning hit) in
high school. I’m only a sophomore,” Arsenault
said. “[This win is] big. One more win and we
win it all. It’s good momentum for Thursday.”
In two games, Arsenault is batting .500, hav-
ing gone 4 for 8 from the plate.
Arsenault’s game-winning hit was only pos-
sible because of a towering home run hit by
sophomore catcher Ramon Enriquez, who
crushed a 1-0 pitch over the fence in right-cen-
ter field to tie the score at 6.
“He’s hit a couple (homers) this year,”
Wilson said. “He’s a baseball player. He under-
stands the situation he was in.”
The loss was galling for the Dons who,
despite scoring six runs against Capuchino ace
Joe Galea, failed to take advantage of some
other scoring opportunities.
“That run’s there somewhere,” said Aragon
manager Lenny Souza. “You have to tip you hat
to Cap.”

a chance to do more damage, but ran out of a

ALAMEDA— For a general manager who
preaches building through the draft, Reggie
McKenzie has struggled to find impact play-
ers his first two years in Oakland.
With all of his picks on the first two days
for the first time in three drafts with the
Raiders, McKenzie is looking to add players
who can be part of the foundation of the
rebuilding project in
“It’s my goal and the
Raiders’ goal to hit on my
picks, and to be right in
everything we do,” he
said. “This year, I’m more
excited. I can’t call it
pressure. I’m more excit-
ed because of the founda-
tion that we’ve built this
The Raiders enter the draft with the fifth
overall pick and also have choices near the
top of the second, third and fourth rounds.
Oakland has traded its fifth- and sixth-round
picks away but does have three selections in
the seventh round.
The Raiders didn’t pick until 95th overall
in 2012 because of previous deals. But
McKenzie was unable to find any hidden
gems as none of the six players selected
started a single game last season.
Oakland had premium picks a year ago,
but first-round cornerback D.J. Hayden was
hampered as he recovered from heart surgery
and struggled in his limited playing time.
Second-round offensive lineman Menelik
Watson barely made it on the field because
of injuries.
“I want to get it right every year, with
every pick,” McKenzie said. “Will you be
100 percent right? Absolutely not.”

While Cañada baseball faltered in its regional
playoff series at Chabot this past weekend,
Saturday’s Game 2 was the punctuation on a
remarkable season for sophomore pitcher Sam
The right-hander pitched the Colts to their
only win in the best-of-three playoff series, tak-
ing a no-decision through seven innings as
Cañada scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of
the eighth to win 3-2.
It was the only game to go Cañada’s way in
the series. The Colts
dropped Game 1 Friday 2-0,
before getting dismantled
20-4 Saturday in the deci-
sive doubleheader nightcap
Game 3. But Alton’s turn-
around since a horrific
freshman season at City
College of San Francisco in
2012 was an affirmation of
what it is to be a communi-
ty college athlete.
Inside three years, Alton went from posting a
1-10 record as a freshman to posting an inverse
10-1 record as a redshirt sophomore this season.
For his efforts, Alton was named the Coast
Pacific Conference Pitcher of the Year, posting
one the great seasons in Cañada baseball histo-
ry, according to Colts manager Tony Lucca.
“He definitely, in my opinion, had one of the
best seasons in the history of the school out of
anybody,” Lucca said. “There’s been some pret-
ty quality pitchers and some pretty quality
ballplayers that have come out of here. But the
season Sam had for us ranks up there with the
best of them. … It wasn’t just a good year. It
really was a dominating year for him. And when
you talk about guys going down in history,
that’s what you talk about — guys who domi-

PITTSBURGH — Buster Posey tagged
Starling Marte and headed to the dugout to
prepare for extra innings.
The San Francisco catcher ended up going
straight to the clubhouse after the streaking
Giants were undone by a nifty slide and the
unflinching eye in the sky.
Marte was called out, then ruled safe on a
replay review with two outs in the bottom of
the ninth inning, lifting the Pittsburgh
Pirates to a 2-1 victory Tuesday night to end
San Francisco’s six-game winning streak.
It was 1-all when Marte tripled off the wall
in right field off Tim Hudson. Marte slid into
third, got up and bolted home when the relay
from second baseman Ehire Adrianza skipped
by third baseman Pablo Sandoval.
Sandoval recovered to throw home and
plate umpire Quinn Wolcott initially ruled
Marte out. A brief review showed Marte’s
right hand touched the plate before Posey
was able to swipe Marte’s chest.
“Looking at it, it was really close,” Posey
said. “I feel like most of the plays like this
that could go either way stay the way they
were called on the field. I don’t know if they
(the umpires) had a different angle than what
I saw but I don’t think so.”
San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy placed
some of the blame on Adrianza’s ill-fated
decision to try and get Marte at third.
“We made a mistake there,” Bochy said.
“It’s a hard call for the relay man because your
instinct is to wheel and throw but with two
outs it’s a dangerous play.”
One that ruined an otherwise spectacular
night by Hudson (4-2). The 38-year-old’s bid
for his first start of nine innings in nearly
two years ended with his second loss of the
season. He was masterful until Marte’s deci-
sive swing. Hudson allowed two runs and five
hits in 8 2-3 innings, striking out five and
walking one as his ERAdipped to 2.15.
“He had unbelievable game,” Bochy said of
Hudson. “Two outs, two strikes in the ninth
inning, it’s a tough loss for him. He pitched
his heart out.”
Yet Hudson allowed he left the ball up over
the plate to Marte. One of baseball’s fastest
players sprinted 270 feet and popped up
when Pirates third base coach Nick Leyva
told him to take off for home after the ball
skipped past Sandoval, whose left hand was
inadvertently kicked by Marte.
“I really think he would have been out if I
would have been able to catch the ball,”
Sandoval said. “He didn’t do it on purpose
and it’s a bad break for us.”
Tony Watson (3-0) worked around two sin-
gles in the ninth to pick up the win. Marte
scored both Pittsburgh runs and Ike Davis
added two hits.
Pittsburgh starter Charlie Morton pitched
eight innings, giving up one unearned run
and three hits, walking two and striking out
Both teams were looking for length out of
their starters after a 5-hour, 13-inning
marathon on Monday night won by the
Giants 11-10 left the bullpens taxed.
Going deep into games hasn’t been a prob-
lem for Hudson, who worked with his typical
efficiency while giving the relievers some
needed down time.
Hudson has thrown at least seven innings
in all seven of his starts this season. He had
little trouble getting through eight innings,
keeping the Pirates off-balance with his typ-
ically impeccable control.
Marte reached on an infield single with one
out in the second and moved to third on a sin-
gle just inside the first base bag by Davis
before scoring on a groundout by Tony
San Francisco’s only run came in the sec-
ond as Sanchez’s throwing issues from
behind the plate resurfaced.
Brandon Belt hit a leadoff single, stole sec-
ond and moved to third when Sanchez’s throw
sailed into shallow center field. Belt scored
on Adrianza’s sacrifice fly.
NOTES: The Giants called up RHPreliever
George Kontos from Triple-A Fresno on
Tuesday and sent Jake Dunning back to the
minors. Kontos had a 4.91 ERA in 18 1-3
innings in Fresno.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant has
plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has
an MVP trophy to go with them.
The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the
NBA’s top individual honor Tuesday, receiv-
ing 119 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron
James, who had won the last two MVP
awards and four of the previous five, finished
second with six first-place votes, and Blake
Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was
“Everything in my life,
I had to take it,” Durant
said at a ceremony in
Edmond. “They’re not
going to give it to you
out of sympathy. I would-
n’t want it any other way.
This was another case, if I
wanted to win the MVP, I
had to go take it. I felt
that this was the year I
did that.”
Durant won his fourth scoring crown in
five years by averaging 32 points. The 6-
foot-9 forward helped the Thunder go 59-23,
second-best in the league, despite playing
much of the season without three-time All-
Star Russell Westbrook by his side because
of a nagging knee injury.
“He’s basically put himself in front of
everybody else in the league and shown that
he’s the best player in the world,”
Westbrook said at the end of the regular sea-
James agreed, saying Monday: “Much
respect to him and he deserves it. He had a
big-time MVP season.”
Durant’s run of 41 consecutive games this
season with at least 25 points was the third-
longest streak in NBAhistory.
“It was a two-man race, and then toward
the end, it was kind of a no-brainer,” Griffin
James averaged 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds
and 6.3 assists while shooting nearly 57
percent from the field.
Griffin averaged 24.1 points and 10.1
“It’s an honor, really,” he said of finish-
ing third. “It’s hard to believe. I’m honored
and humbled by that.”
Durant scored at least 40 points 14 times.
He also averaged 7.4 rebounds and a career-
high 5.5 assists while shooting 50 percent
from the field.

OAKLAND — Rookie Roenis Elias struck
out six while pitching into the seventh to
win consecutive starts for the first time,
Justin Smoak drove in three runs and the
Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics
8-3 on Tuesday night for their season-best
fourth straight victory.
Smoak hit an RBI double and Dustin
Ackley an RBI single in the first to back
Elias (3-2), who followed up a 10-strikeout
gem at Yankee Stadium his last time out with
another impressive start.
The Mariners jumped on Jesse Chavez (2-
1) to take a quick first-inning lead for the
second straight game against the A’s — and
Seattle scored all three of its first-inning
runs with two outs on the way to its ninth
win in 11 games overall.
Chavez got a scare and escaped injury in
the fourth when he saved himself from a
hard-hit liner by Michael Saunders by catch-
ing the screamer that was going right for
his face.
Making the play knocked him off his feet
to end the fourth, and the small Coliseum
crowd of 12,106 briefly fell silent.
Chavez got a double play to face the min-
imum in the fifth, but his night ended after
allowing Mike Zunino’s sixth-inning sacri-
fice fly following a hit batsman and a walk.

in the fifth inning. As per California
Community College baseball rules,
Lucca was required to serve a one-
game suspension. As a result, he did
not manage the final win of
Cañada’s season as Alton dealt in
Game 2. He did, however, resume
the helm for Game 3 in the second
game of Saturday’s twin bill.
“I got a nice little ovation from
our fans and from our team when I
walked into the dugout, which was
nice,” Lucca said.
But things swiftly and definitive-
ly took a turn for the worst, as
Chabot jumped on Canada starting
pitcher Joe Marcucci for seven runs
in the first inning. With the Colts
playing their fourth game in five
days — Alton started both games
Cañada won — the team’s pitching
depth was as thin as it had been for
any game all season.
“It was one of those cases where
[Marcucci] looked really, really
good in the bullpen and it just didn’t
translate into the game,” Lucca said.
“In the game of baseball, you have
days like that. Unfortunately it was
the wrong day to have one of those
type of days.”
It wasn’t that Marcucci came
entirely undone. The freshman
right-hander surrendered eight runs
over two innings, though only five
of the runs were earned. It was a
nightmare of a series for the defense
though, as the Colts infield made
seven errors in the series, six of
which were committed by shortstop
Kyle Zirbes.
In Game 1, Zirbes made three
errors in the second inning which
led to both of Chabot’s runs on the
day. Both runs were unearned. In
Game 3, Zirbes committed three
more errors, with one in each of a
pair of seven-run innings for
“Zirbes had a tough series all the
way around,” Lucca said. “I mean, he
got a couple hits, but I think he
made some mistakes and made some
decisions that obviously were not
the best. He’s a good player. He
played hard, it’s just … it wasn’t his
And Cañada’s overall postseason
frustrations continue as well, as the
team has yet to advance past the first
round of the playoffs during Lucca’s
“We just can’t get out of this first
round for whatever reason,” Lucca
said. “I don’t know what it is.”
It was still a successful regular
season for the Colts though, as the
team finished with a 26-14 overall
record and finished in second place
with a 17-7 record in Coast Pacific
Conference play. And the team ral-
lied late in the season, winning
their final six games to land the final
No. 16 seed in the Nor Cal playoffs.
“I’m proud of this group,” Lucca
said. “They went out there, they
played hard. … We made it to the
postseason. It was a very successful
season. We had a Pitcher of the Year.
There’s a lot of good things to look
back and really appreciate.”
It was Alton’s performance down
the stretch that highlighted the suc-
cessful season. The sophomore put
the team on his shoulders during an
extra-inning game April 3, in which
the Colts won 1-0 after battling
Cabrillo for 13 innings. Alton
worked 11 innings and while
Cabrillo pitcher Nat Hamby went
10 innings in a pitching duel for the
Alton has yet to commit to a
transfer. Lucca said Alton being able
to pitch at the four-year college
level is in the bag. And his upside
could even see him pitch beyond
“He’s definitely got a couple more
years left of college ball,” Lucca
said. “He’s definitely going to play.
And if he continues to get stronger,
and … if he can light up the gun a
little bit more with his fastball, I
think he definitely has a chance to
play after college baseball because
of his ability to locate pitches in
any count, his whole demeanor and
everything. Wherever he lands
these next two years, somebody is
going to be very happy with him,
I’m sure.”
Continued from page 11
inning. Brenden Donnelly, who was
on third with one out, was tagged out
trying to score when Chad Franquez
hit a comebacker to Galea.
Later in the inning, Davis was
tagged out trying to score from sec-
ond on a Steven Hughes single after
Franquez had already scored.
“(Donnelly’s out is) on me. I didn’t
make sure the ball cleared the pitch-
er,” Souza said. “And I thought the
ball scooted further away from the
center fielder when I sent Davis.”
The comeback by Capuchino (9-4,
19-7) made a winner of Galea, who
grinded through six innings, allow-
ing six runs (four earned). He scat-
tered eight hits and then gave way to
Rory McDaid, who retired in order
the heart of the Aragon lineup.
It became clear early on that the
game would be a wild affair.
Capuchino took a quick 1-0 lead in
the top of the first on a Galea bloop
single to shallow left field that drove
in McDaid, who singled with two
It was the first of Galea’s three hits
and two RBIs on the day.
Aragon, however, came back with
two runs in the bottom of the first,
also with two outs. Davis was hit by
a pitch and Hughes walked. Both run-
ners moved up on a balk and both
came home on Brennan Carey’s sin-
gle to center.
The Mustangs responded with two
more runs in the second. Orcholski
started the rally with a lead-off single
and moved to second on a groundout.
Arsenault singled to put runners on
the corners and he moved to second
on a wild pitch. With two outs, Chris
Kosta singled up the middle to plate
both runners and give the Mustangs
a 3-2 lead.
Back came the Dons, who scored
two more in the bottom of the frame
for a 4-3 advantage. Justin Johnson
walked to lead off the inning before
Kyle Hamilton put down a perfect
bunt and beat it out when the
Capuchino third baseman was unable
to make a bare-handed grab. The
rally was slowed when the Mustangs
turned a double play, but a double
from Matt Foppiano drove in
Johnson and he scored when
Franquez’s shot to the first baseman
caught him between hops and scoot-
ed into the outfield.
Aragon made it 5-3 on Hughes’
solo home run in the bottom of the
third and doubled up the Mustangs on
a Hughes RBI single in the fourth.
Galea, however, shut down the
Dons over the final three innings,
giving his teammates a chance to
rally and give him the win.
Aragon starter Kevin Hahn ended
up with a no-decision after working
five innings, giving up 11 hits and
five runs — only three of which were

It was the first win for Miami in five meet-
ings with Brooklyn this season.
Chris Bosh scored 15 points and grabbed
11 rebounds, Dwyane Wade finished with 14
points and Mario Chalmers had 12 for
Miami, which lost to Brooklyn four times
by a total of 12 points.
Deron Williams and Joe Johnson scored
17 points each for the Nets, who got only
eight from Paul Pierce and no points from
Kevin Garnett in 16 minutes.
Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is
Thursday night.
A24-9 run in the third quarter blew things
open for the Heat, who hadn’t played in
eight days after sweeping Charlotte in the
opening round. James finished 10 for 15
from the field and Allen — who had never
faced his former Boston “Big 3” compatri-
ots Pierce and Garnett in the playoffs — was
4 of 7 from 3-point land.
Spurs 116, Trail Blazers 92
SAN ANTONIO — Tony Parker had 33
points and nine assists and San Antonio
never trailed in Game 1 of the Western
Conference semifinal.
Kawhi Leonard had 16 points and Tim
Duncan added 12 points and 11 rebounds for
San Antonio.
More importantly for the Spurs, their
bench contributed mightily after being vir-
tually non-existent in the opening-round
series against Dallas. Marco Belinelli had
19 points and the Australian connection of
Aron Baynes and Patty Mills had 10 points
LaMarcus Aldridge had 32 points and 14
rebounds and Damian Lillard had 17 points
for Portland, but the All-Star duo combined
for just 17 points in the first half as San
Antonio built a 26-point lead.
The Trail Blazers were coming off a first-
round upset of Houston.
NBAplayoff roundup

second round of the playoffs, and they were
51-31 this season before losing in seven
games to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first
The Warriors, who have surrounded star
Stephen Curry with a talented nucleus since
Lacob’s group bought the franchise in 2010,
had not made the playoffs in consecutive
years since 1991-92. They had made the post-
season once in 17 years before Jackson
Lacob compared the decision to replace
Jackson to his work as a venture capitalist in
Silicon Valley.
“There’s a different CEO that may be required
to achieve success at different stages of an
organization’s development,” Lacob said.
“When you’re a startup company it’s one
thing, when you’re a small-growth company
it’s one thing and when you’re a mature com-
pany that’s trying to reach a billion in sales
— or in this case win an NBAchampionship
— perhaps that’s a different person. And we
just felt overall we needed a different person.”
Lacob and Myers declined to discuss the
coaching search, other than to say it would
begin immediately. Former NBA player and
TNT broadcaster Steve Kerr, former Orlando
Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, Iowa State’s
Fred Hoiberg and Connecticut’s Kevin Ollie
have been among the most talked-about can-
didates this offseason.
The Warriors know a new coach comes with
the risk of disrupting team chemistry, espe-
cially considering nearly every player pub-
licly called for Jackson to return, especially
Curry, whom Lacob said was informed of the
decision ahead of time. Myers also spoke to
several players after he and Lacob informed
Jackson of their decision in a meeting Tuesday
“The hope and belief after talking to them is
that they trust us and they believe that we
make decisions to win as well,” Myers said.
Jackson took to Twitter to thank the organ-
ization, players and fans. Several of his pres-
ent and past players also applauded the job he
had done.
Jackson, a former NBApoint guard who had
his best seasons with the New York Knicks
and Indiana Pacers, had never been a head
coach at any level when Lacob hired him away
from the ESPN/ABC broadcast table in June
2011. Aminister who runs a church with his
wife near their Southern California home,
Jackson often spoke of his Christian beliefs
while surprisingly turning the Warriors into
one of the NBA’s best defensive teams.
But Jackson’s boisterous personality at
times did not play well with Warriors manage-
ment, his staff and — to a much lesser extent
— his players. And his attitude, which bor-
dered on confidence and cockiness, also came
off as increasingly insecure when the team
The Warriors still stuck by Jackson even
when he created news off the court, including
when reports surfaced in June 2012 that he and
his family were the targets of an extortion
attempt related to an extramarital affair he had
six years prior, which led to questions about
his credibility and morals.
The pressure on Jackson really heated up
when the Warriors decided to pick up his con-
tract option for the 2014-15 season last sum-
mer instead of negotiating a long-term deal as
he had wanted. Management also encouraged
Jackson to hire a strong tactician after top
assistant Michael Malone — who had several
disagreements with Jackson — left to become
the coach of the Sacramento Kings.
Instead, Jackson promoted Pete Myers and
other assistants and hired Lindsey Hunter and
Brian Scalabrine. And while reports of rifts
within the team surfaced on occasion, dis-
missing two assistants — Scalabrine and
Darren Erman — in a 12-day span before the
playoffs perpetuated the idea that Jackson had
fostered an environment of dysfunction —
which Jackson repeatedly refuted.

Here are five things to watch with the
Raiders when the draft starts Thursday
Quarterback quandary
The Raiders entered the offseason in need
of finding a starting quarterback. After trad-
ing a sixth-round pick for Matt Schaub in
March, McKenzie no longer needs to fil l
that hole through the draft.
“That’s still a position that we’ll look at,
but I think what it does is, you don’t feel
that pressure that you have to go out there
and try and draft a quarterback,” coach
Dennis Allen said. “You kind of let every-
thing fall to you now. ”
Win now
The Raiders have spent the first two years
under the leadership of McKenzie and Allen
tearing down the franchise after years of
poor management under late owner Al
Davis. Now they are in the rebuild mode, but
owner Mark Davis is losing patience after
consecutive four-win seasons. McKenzie
said that does not put pressure on him to find
players who can contribute immediately.
“You draft for the future,” McKenzie said.
“You don’t draft for right now. That’s not the
way I do it.”
Going deep
One of the deepest positions in this draft
is receiver, where more than a dozen players
are projected to go in the first three rounds.
Even after adding veteran James Jones in
free agency, the Raiders could look for a
playmaker in the draft. Clemson’s Sammy
Watkins is considered the best of the group,
but the Raiders also could wait to get a qual-
ity receiver in the second or third round.
“If I feel like this guy is an impact player,
I’m not going to bypass him just because
there’s some other good, solid receivers,”
McKenzie said. “When you’re comparing
great to good, I’d rather have great.”
Draft dealings
McKenzie has not been shy about making
draft-day trades. He has moved down in the
draft four times in his first two years to add
additional picks, including dropping nine
spots in the first round last year to take
Hayden 12th overall and add the pick for
Watson in the second round.
“That’s what makes it fun — the uncer-
tainty,” he said. “But I cannot plan that at
all. I can just be hardheaded and stubborn
and say, ‘I’m not moving.’ But that’s not
my style.”
Undrafted gems
A GM’s work is not done once Mr.
Irrelevant is picked. McKenzie has done a
good job finding some gems in the undraft-
ed free agent market with receiver Rod
Streater, quarterback Matt McGloin, punter
Marquette King and offensive lineman Lucas
Nix all making contributions the past two
years after joining Oakland as undrafted free

It’s barbecue season, and chicken is
the ideal candidate to get you grilling.
Why? Chicken is light, it easily
picks up the marinade of your choice,
and it cooks quickly. But this recipe is
not for your everyday grilled chicken.
This is spicy Jamaican-style jerk
“Jerk” refers both to a unique blend
of seasonings and to a method of slow
cooking. It is said to have been
invented by Jamaica’s Maroons,
slaves who escaped from Spanish-
owned plantations when the British
took over and established free commu-
nities in Jamaica’s mountainous inte-
rior. The Maroons hunted wild boars,
then preserved the meat with a spice
mix that contained a hefty amount of
salt. When it was time to eat, the meat
was cooked in a pit or grilled very
slowly over a fire. Eventually,
Jamaicans began to cook all kinds of
meats jerk-style.
Jerk seasoning consists of a base
blend of scallions, thyme, allspice
(known as pimento in Jamaica),
Scotch bonnet chilies, salt and, not
infrequently, cinnamon or nutmeg.
This may look like an awful lot of
ingredients to slice and dice, but that’s
not the case. Toss them all into a
blender, pulverize everything to a
paste, then you’re good to go.
But you do need to be careful when
you’re messing with those Scotch
bonnets. I advise wearing gloves.
Seriously. A cousin of the habanero,
Scotch bonnets are serious chilies. I
call for a whole chili here, but you can
use less if you want to tamp down the
heat. Happily, Scotch bonnets aren’t
solely about heat; they also are unique-
ly flavorful — like a cross between a
mango and chili — with a wonderfully
fruity scent. If you can’t find Scotch
bonnets, use a habanero. If you can’t
find either, reach for a jalapeno or ser-
I left the skin on the chicken to pre-
vent it from drying out while it’s being
grilled, so when you marinate the
chicken be sure to put the spice paste
under the skin as well as on top of it. If
you want to cut calories, you’re wel-
come to discard the skin after you’re
done grilling. The meat itself will be
plenty spicy.
The job of the watermelon salsa is to
balance the heat of the chilies. All by
itself, of course, ripe watermelon is
one of the top reasons to love summer.
But they happen to be plenty healthy,
too. They’re full of water, which makes
them an excellent hot weather thirst-
quencher, and they’re a great source of
lycopene, vitamin C and beta-
And these days you don’t have to buy
mega-melons. There are plenty of
smaller versions, most of them “seed-
less” (or at least with soft little seeds),
the result of hybridization. At the
supermarket, look for a melon with a
large yellow spot on the bottom. The
bottom, or underbelly, of a watermelon
is the spot where it was resting on the
ground. If that “ground spot” is white
or green, the watermelon is unlikely to
be fully ripe. Once your melon is
home, don’t store it in the fridge, at
least not until it’s sliced.
So, jerk and watermelon. Hot and
sweet. What could be more summery?
Start to finish: 1 hour 15 minutes (45
minutes active), plus 24 hours mari-

And you thought the lines to get a Cronut
were bad before!
Last year, New York pastry chef
Dominique Ansel needed crowd control and
rationing to handle the frenzy over his
trademarked doughnut-croissant hybrid that
became a viral success and spawned numer-
ous knockoffs. But just as the furor was fad-
ing, the James Beard Foundation has put
him back at the center of the culinary map,
on Monday naming him the nation’s top
pastry chef.
Ansel gained fame last summer when his
innovative sweet treat had New Yorkers lin-
ing up at dawn outside his Dominique Ansel
Bakery to nab one of the 200 or so he made
per day. There even was a Cronut black mar-
ket, with some selling for as much as $40
The Beard Foundation also gave a nod to
the savory side of the baking aisle, naming
Los Angeles bread and pizza guru Nancy
Silverton the nation’s most outstanding
chef. She’s only the fourth woman to get the
honor since it began in 1991. The others
include Alice Waters (1992), Lidia
Bastianich (2002) and Judy Rodgers (2004).
Silverton — whose early career included a
stint as head pastry chef for Wolfgang
Puck’s Spago — was at the fore of the arti-
sanal bread movement. When she opened
her restaurant, Campanile, she was frustrat-
ed when she couldn’t find a baker making the
rustic sourdough breads she’d had during her
training in Europe. So she taught herself to
bake it.
In 1989, she opened La Brea Bakery next
door to Campanile, and it quickly was
regarded as one of the nation’s top bakeries.
Two years later, the Beard Foundation named
her the nation’s top pastry chef. Today, her
restaurants include Pizzeria Mozza in Los
Angeles, which she owns with Mario
On Monday, she said the decision to
cook wasn’t easy, and she expected her
family to be unhappy.
“I was in my senior
year of college, when
cooks were cooks. There
were no celebrity chefs. I
called my father up and
said, ‘I’m dropping out of
college. I want to cook,”’
Silverton said. “And he
said, ‘As long as you go
to Le Cordon Bleu.’ And
so he sent me to Le
Cordon Bleu. And here I
am today. ”
The James Beard awards
honor those who follow
in the footsteps of Beard,
considered the dean of
American cooking when
he died in 1985.
Monday’s ceremony in
New York honored chefs
and restaurants; a similar
event on Friday was held
for book and other media awards. Last year’s
top chef honor was shared by David Chang
and Paul Kahan.
The foundation’s outstanding restaurateur
award went to Boston chef Barbara Lynch,
marking only the second time the honor has
gone to a woman. Lynch oversees half a
dozen restaurants, including her first — No.
9 Park and her most recent, Menton — and
is credited with fostering the city’s burgeon-
ing food scene.
San Francisco’s The Slanted Door, where
classic Vietnamese food gets a modern
rethinking by owner and chef Charles Phan,
was named the nation’s most outstanding
Donald Link’s Peche Seafood Grill in New
Orleans — known for its rustic coastal
seafood cooked in an open hearth — gar-
nered two awards Monday: best new restau-
rant overall, as well as a tie for best region-
al chef in the South for chef/partner Ryan

NEWYORK — Subway is testing hummus
and thinner slices of deli meats that look
more appealing as it looks to keep pace
with changing eating trends.
Tony Pace, Subway’s chief marketing offi-
cer, said in interview Tuesday that the chain
began testing hummus as a topping in early
April. Pace noted that many customers
already order vegetarian sandwiches and that
the chickpea spread would give people
looking for meatless options another
“It’s something we’ve been talking about
for the last three or four years,” Pace said,
saying it has “tremendous potential.”
If the test is successful, Pace said it would
be the first time the chain rolled out hummus
nationally. Individual franchisees may have
offered it independently in the past, he said.
Getting hummus as a topping will cost
more, much like the avocado Subway added
to its menu in recent years.
The hummus test comes at a time when
many Americans are trying to cut back on
how much meat they eat. In particular, Pace
noted that people in their 20s are more
“nutritionally aware” than any other past
generation. In coming years, he predicted
their eating habits will force the restaurant
industry to adapt their menus.
Executives at Chipotle Mexican Grill,
which recently began rolling out a vegan
tofu topping for its burritos and bowls, have
also noted that meatless options help the
chain cultivate a relationship with younger
consumers, who often experiment with
being a vegetarian or vegan.
In a separate interview, Subway co-
founder Fred DeLuca said the chain also
started testing thinner slices of deli meat in

The secret to this simple Mother’s
Day dessert is frozen puff pastry. It is
easy to work with and bakes up into a
deliciously flaky pastry.
You’ll find puff pastry in the grocer’s
freezer section, usually near the frozen
fruit and pie shells. Be sure to thaw it
completely before trying to unfold the
sheets of pastry. You can place the box
in the refrigerator overnight, or leave
it (unopened) on the counter for about
an hour.
We like the combination of black-
berries and orange, but feel free to sub-
stitute any berry. Blueberries, raspber-
ries and strawberries all would be deli-
cious. This dessert also can be prepped
ahead of time. Just bake the pastry
squares, then store them covered at
room temperature.
Start to finish: 30 minutes
Servings: 9
17.3-ounce package puff pastry
(each package contains 2 sheets),
4 tablespoons granulated sugar,
2 cups fresh blackberries
Zest and juice of 1 orange
16-ounce container mascarpone
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Heat the oven to 375 F. Line a bak-
ing sheet with kitchen parchment.
Unfold each sheet of puff pastry and
lay flat on a work surface. Use 2 table-
spoons of the sugar to sprinkle both
sides of both sheets of puff pastry.
Using a pizza wheel or a paring knife,
cut each sheet into 9 squares.
Arrange the squares on the prepared
baking sheet, then place another piece
of parchment on top of them. Place a
second baking sheet on top of that so
that the puff pastry is sandwiched
between them. Bake for 20 to 25 min-
utes, or until golden brown. Remove
the top baking sheet and allow the
squares to cool completely.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl com-
bine the blackberries with the remain-
ing 2 tablespoons of sugar and the
orange zest and juice. Set aside.
In another bowl, stir together the
mascarpone, powdered sugar and vanil-
To assemble, place 1 pastry square
on each serving plate. Top the square
with 1 tablespoon of the mascarpone
mixture, then 1 tablespoon of the
berries. Top with another square of
pastry, followed by another layer each
of mascarpone and berries. Serve

Mother’s Day ricotta spinach tart
Start to finish: 1 hour (20 minutes active)
Servings: 6
1 package prepared pie dough
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
5-ounce package baby spinach
1 egg
2 cups ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
Heat the oven to 375 F. Coat an 8-inch tart pan with a
removable bottom with cooking spray. Press the pie dough
into the tart pan, trimming any excess.
In a skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the garlic
and cook for 1 minute. Add the spinach and cook until com-
pletely soft and most the of the liquid has evaporated, 4 to 5
minutes. Transfer the spinach to a fine mesh strainer. Using a
spoon or silicone spatula, press the spinach to extract any
remaining liquid.
In a medium bowl, beat the egg, then add the ricotta, thyme,
lemon zest, salt, pepper and spinach. Stir to combine. Spread
the mixture in the prepared tart shell and sprinkle with Asiago
cheese. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes,
or until puffed and golden brown. Allow to cool slightly.
Serve warm or at room temperature.

WASHINGTON — After watching China
narrow the U.S. lead as the world’s largest
economy, Americans might be tempted to
cheer signs that the Chinese economy
might be stumbling.
Any schadenfreude would be short-sight-
In an interconnected global economy, bad
news for one economic superpower is typi-
cally bad news for another — even a fierce
“It hurts,” says Mark Zandi, chief econo-
mist at Moody’s Analytics. “China is the
second-largest economy on the planet. If
growth slows there, it affects everybody. ”
Zandi estimates that each 1 percentage
point drop in China’s economic growth
causes as much damage to the U.S. economy
as a $20-a-barrel increase in oil prices: It
shaves 0.2 percentage point off annual U.S.
That isn’t catastrophic. But to regain its
full health nearly five years after the Great
Recession officially ended, the U.S. econo-
my needs whatever help it can get.
Slowing Chinese economy likely to pinch U.S., too
“I did not see any of the acoustics engi-
neers come to my backyard to hear any of
these sounds fans make,” said neighbor
Samar Noureddine. “You put a seven-foot wall
and we pretty much don’t have any light; my
lemon trees are going dead. It should be on
the roof like it’s supposed to be. … I would
invite anyone to come into my backyard on
a day they don’t know you’re coming.”
The restaurant disagrees. Robert Fong, the
owner’s son, said things are improving. An
appeal letter from Tai Wu in response to the
cease and desist order issued on April 25
states the restaurant is committed to building
a good long-term relationship with the city
and the adjacent residents.
“We’ve had the units on low for two plus
weeks in consideration of the neighbors,” he
said. “If we do implement such a wall, it will
make it (the sound) unnoticeable. … It was
the second we got noise complaints we
turned it on to low.”
Parking is the second largest issue the
restaurant is dealing with given that mem-
bers of the Hemlock and Bayside Manor
neighborhoods complained about employ-
ees and customers parking in front of their
homes. At the end of April, the City Council
moved to allow expanded preferential park-
ing permits for these neighborhoods. The
restaurant is proposing adding spaces at
Universal Supply to the north, while also
maintaining spaces leased in the parking
lots of nearby Burger King and Speedee. The
lease with Universal Supply is only month-
to-month, so the commission requested a
longer-term lease be sought since there
would be uncertainty about the long-term
availability of the spaces.
Residents wanted to know why the city did-
n’t consider the parking problems when the
restaurant was first approved, said resident
Barbara Moreman.
“There’s no room for where people used to
park,” she said.
Another restaurant owner named Paul said
most of Tai Wu’s customers never park in the
designated parking spots and fears a bad acci-
dent is going to happen.
There was ample parking, but there were a
great deal of spaces patrons and employees
did not use, said Planning Commissioner
Catherine Quigg. Additionally, the valet
service didn’t work since customers were
reluctant to pay for parking or to entrust their
cars to staff. An April 21 memo to staff asked
employees to not park in resident areas, car-
pool with other employees if they live with-
in a mile of each other, park in designated
spots, show proof of using public trans-
portation for a 10 percent discount to family
and friends at the restaurant and to be courte-
ous to neighbors.
When things grew tense between Tai Wu
representatives and neighborhood members
at a Monday night meeting, Planning
Commissioner Lorrie Kalos-Gunn said it’s
better for each side if they don’t play a tit-
for-tat game.”
“It’s about let’s get as much information as
quickly as possible,” she said. “It will make
the process go much quicker.”
Other issues the city is looking into
include seating in excess of the approved
limit; strong kitchen and/or trash odors; pri-
vacy intrusion from rear windows; noise
from a PG&E meter; an enclosure needed for
an unsightly fire apparatus; a front sign need-
ing inspection; and parking lot landscaping.
Some of these matters have been addressed.
With the proposed changes to the parking
and air intake units, Planning Commissioner
Jean Joh is hopeful things work out. If the
wall option doesn’t work, moving the units
back to the restaurant’s roof might be the
only option, she said.
“We want to be able to welcome businesses
to Millbrae,” Joh said. “They spent a lot of
time and money to come here.”
Others still aren’t satisfied. Such a massive
restaurant shouldn’t have been approved at
this location, said Camille Lopez, a Hemlock
“We can’t just take their word for it,” she
said. “The city should supervise everything
and make sure the fixes are effective. They
(Tai Wu) should not be operational until
these issues are effectively resolved. We
can’t live like this anymore. We’ve never had
issues with any of the other businesses. Why
are we catering to them?”
But Kalos-Gunn explained legally, the
process requires the restaurant a certain
amount of time to make corrections. She
acknowledged parking is the biggest issue
with the restaurant.
“They needed some time to hear ‘yes you
can do this’ or ‘no you can’t do that,’” she
said. “The parking situation didn’t work. It’s
about educating their customer base about
what places are available for parking; they
could have a parking attendant. … Who
knows? Maybe the new options work fabu-

Candidates vying to become secretary of
state are offering competing plans to inject
transparency and restore public faith in gov-
Arace that typically exists in the political
backwaters of a California election season
popped on to the public stage earlier this year
when one of the top candidates, Democratic
state Sen. Leland Yee, was arrested and later
indicted on federal corruption charges as part
of a wider probe into illicit dealings in San
Francisco’s Chinatown. Yee has since pleaded
not guilty and dropped his candidacy, even
though his name will remain on the June 3
primary ballot.
The charges against Yee include allegations
that he peddled his influence in the
Legislature in exchange for campaign contri-
butions from undercover FBI agents.
State Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, is
fighting similar charges in a separate federal
case, while Democratic Sen. Rod Wright was
convicted of perjury and voter fraud for lying
about his legal residency in the Los Angeles
area. Their fellow senators suspended all
In April, the California Fair Political
Practices Commission fined state Sen. Tom
Berryhill, R-Twain Harte, and his brother
Bill, a former Republican member of the
Assembly, for illegally transferring cam-
paign cash.
Secretary of state candidates seeking to
replace the termed out incumbent, Democrat
Debra Bowen, are capitalizing on the cases to
propose reforms.
Among them is overhauling the Cal-Access
database that tracks campaign spending and
contributions. The system, maligned as out-
dated and cumbersome, has long been target-
ed for a reboot.
“Anyone who uses it today knows it’s too
slow, and even if you make it faster, that’s
still not enough,” said state Sen. Alex
Padilla, D-Los Angeles.
Candidates are suggesting a variety of
changes and updates: Padilla wants notifica-
tions of new activity and prompt disclosure;
Republican Pete Peterson, who runs a civic
engagement think tank at Pepperdine
University, wants Californians to compare
politicians’ campaign finances with their
economic interests; and Derek Cressman, a
former leader of the advocacy group Common
Cause, wants contributions coded by indus-
Independent Dan Schnur said the bigger job
for the secretary of state is advocating for
policies that force politicians to spend more
time governing and less time fundraising.
Transparency promises are a perennial
issue in secretary of state races, says San Jose
State University professor Larry Gerston, yet
often go nowhere after the election. The can-
didates point to their respective backgrounds
to show how they will deliver.
Peterson said he has been immersed in a
world that seeks to make government data
accessible, as an adviser to OpenGov and
through initiatives at his institute at the uni-
versity in Malibu.
“If there is one thing government needs to
be bigger about, it is supporting and promot-
ing civic engagement,” Peterson said during a
recent candidates’ debate.
He has rejected the strategies of
Republicans elsewhere in the country to
require voter identification at the polls and
restrict voting hours.
Cressman said he has managerial experi-
ence as vice president of state operations at
Common Cause fighting big money in poli-
Schnur, a former Republican strategist who
also was chairman of the California Fair
Political Practices Commission, says he
tackled the database during his time leading
the state’s campaign watchdog agency. He
convened a taskforce identifying affordable
ways to allow candidates to file records online
with the secretary of state, although the rec-
ommendations ultimately were not adopted.
Padilla, the only elected official still in the
race, said he is the only candidate versed in
budget negotiations and policy making. He
has written multiple ethics-reform bills that
are moving through the Legislature, includ-
ing a ban on lawmakers’ fundraising during
the last 100 days of the legislative session.
Padilla said his bill would separate special
interest money from key votes. But Schnur
says it doesn’t go far enough, calling for an
end to fundraising during the entire nine-
month session.
While Peterson supports Schnur’s idea, he
said lawmakers and special interests would
likely find a way around it. Cressman and
Green Party candidate David Curtis support
public financing of campaigns to eliminate
the need for politicians to fundraise at all.
“We need to get the big money out of poli-
tics, not just reschedule it,” said Cressman,
who advocates against corporate spending in
It’s not clear how much the lawmaker scan-
dals and reform proposals will resonate with
voters in the June primary.
“The trouble with this race is the secretary
of state deals with issues that are both impor-
tant and boring,” said Jack Pitney, a political
science professor at Claremont McKenna
College. “Most voters haven’t the faintest
idea what the secretary of state does.”
That leaves party affiliation as the deciding
factor for many voters.
But a constitutional amendment proposed
by Republican state Assemblyman Jeff Gorell
would make the office nonpartisan as an
attempt to elevate it above partisan politics.
Schnur, who teaches politics and communi-
cations at the University of Southern
California and UC Berkeley, said a partisan
secretary of state is inherently conflicted
when managing elections and that he would
be the state’s loudest voice for good govern-
ment without partisan baggage.

“What I want to do is bring a note of
positive, entrepreneurial spirit, the
can-do attitude that’s here in the Bay
Area to the U.S. Congress,” Chew
said. “And stop yelling past each other
and find ways to work together,
whether they have an “R” in front of
their name or a “D” in front of their
Speier said she has a long history of
public service with results and wants
to continue her work on strengthening
women’s rights while addressing
income inequality and the need for
affordable housing in the Bay Area.
Speier, of Hillsborough, has served
in Congress since 2008 and currently
represents the 14th District, mostly in
San Mateo County. With California’s
open primary, the top two candidates
in a race, regardless of party, will face
off in the November general election.
Because there are only two candidates
in this primary, both Chew and Speier
will face off again in November.
Speier and Chew share goals such as
immigration reform and encouraging a
worker visa program, more govern-
ment oversight on military spending
and believe a sustainable future of
mass transit is imperative for the
growing Bay Area.
Speier and Chew agree climate
change is inevitable and needs to be a
focus for Congress.
San Mateo County alone has been
predicted to experience more than a
foot of sea level rise in the Bay over
the next 30 years, Speier said. She
fears Americans aren’t prepared and
she’s joined other politicians in the
county to host educational seminars to
help illustrate the effects of climate
Both want the nation to reduce car-
bon emissions and Chew said the rhet-
oric and causal assumptions surround-
ing climate change need to be set
aside. Congress should focus on feasi-
ble and meaningful changes and create
effective policies that include holding
those who negatively impact the envi-
ronment accountable.
Chew said he wants to see the gov-
ernment invest in its failing infra-
structure such as levees and bridges and
support the private sector to help
boost economic growth and small
Chew said his experience in online
education makes him uniquely quali-
fied. He wants educators to be equipped
with the tools needed to ensure stu-
dents are competitive in a global econ-
omy. Chew said he would like to see
technology better used in classrooms.
With technology, children could
advance in a lesson if others need more
time and extra attention from teachers.
Inequality, the military
Speier said the government needs to
do more to ensure everyone, regardless
of gender or location, has the chance
to be competitive.
“I feel very strongly that we have to
do more in terms of bridging the gap
between the haves and the have nots.
I’ve been an outspoken person in the
issue of food stamps and addressing
income inequality. I think the housing
in this region is something we have to
address,” Speier said. “It’s uncon-
scionable that a one-bedroom apart-
ment in San Mateo County should cost
$3,000 a month.”
In San Mateo County, about 7 per-
cent of the population is below the
poverty line and the unemployment
rate is about 5 percent, the lowest in
the state, Speier said. However, nearly
15 percent of East Palo Alto residents
are unemployed and 18 percent are
below the poverty line, Speier said.
Speier said she’s been a dedicated
advocate for women’s rights including
accessibility to family planning serv-
ices, amended a House resolution to
expand sexual harassment training for
congressional employees and wants to
continue her work on ending military
sexual assault.
Chew said women should never be
discouraged from serving in the mili-
He would like to see Congress shift
its reaction to foreign conflict from a
forceful and immediate reaction to a
strategic and carefully calculated
“Peace through strength is really the
cornerstone of my military and foreign
policy,” Chew said. “I want us to, cer-
tainly if we need to, use our military in
defense of our nation … but it should
be a process of elimination. … using
all of our other national assets to
accomplish our objectives.”
Immigration reform
Both Chew and Speier want to see
bipartisan immigration reform. Chew
said the process is overly cumbersome
to some who wish to come to the
United States legally and has resulted
in the country militarizing its board-
“Do we really want to be the nation
that goes at gunpoint to apartment
complexes and arrests 11 million peo-
ple out of their homes and marches
them to the border? There has to be
some way to regulate their status other
than walk them to the border at gun-
point,” Chew said.
Speier said she’s wants a practical
path to citizenship that provides
opportunities and generates revenue,
but the issue of immigration reform is
an example of Republican disconnect.
“I actually think that there’s a will-
ingness to meet the Republicans
halfway. But they won’t even come to
the table. They’re so focused on their
own election and fearful [of] losing to
someone who’s so extreme … there are
some who are unwilling to talk about
it. They refuse,” Speier said.
Chew contends this job requires
more turnover and given the chance,
said he intends to remind Congress
they represent all constituents regard-
less of party lines.
“The division in Congress is under-
mining its work,” Chew said. “I’d put
[constituents] ahead of any party,
because they’re the American people.
They’re the people that we serve.”

They also discuss him using their
sound generating devices on iPads
or other tablets, giving commands
such as “can I walk Rhett, brush
Rhett or feed Rhett?” He also helps
during adaptive physical education
by running, retrieving balls, model-
ing stretches, kicking and other
actions. Rhett uses his retrieve
command to hold bags so the kids
can drop bean bags inside. He also
pushes buttons on a musical toy.
Students look forward to seeing the
dog and students type out expressions
on their talkers such as “I feel excited”
when asked how they’re doing before
working with Rhett.
Students are willing to take more
risks with Rhett around, said Mary
Elizabeth Maher, director of student
services for the Hillsborough City
Elementary School District.
“It’s a phenomenal opportunity for
dogs,” she said. “It’s very productive.”
The program means that Bliquez
even got a new pet, as she takes Rhett
home with her after school.
“There are access tests to make sure
he’s keeping up with his commands
and not just eating bacon off the
table,” she said.
Facility dogs like Rhett provide a
huge motivating factor for children
and others participating in therapy,
said Angie Schacht, development
associate for the Canine Companions
for Independence Northwest Region.
“One story I heard about is a dog
working primarily with children with
autism,” she said. “One boy never said
a word for a year in the special educa-
tion classroom. After a month he start-
ed to say ‘dog.’”

otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Anna Maria M. Zabala.
A Petition for Probate has been filed by
J. luis Zabala, Jr. abd Paul J. Zabala in
the Superior Court of California, County
of San Mateo. The Petition for Probate
requests that J. Luis Zabala, Jr. and Paul
J. Zabala be appointed as personal rep-
resentative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the

this court as follows: May 20, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

TEHRAN, Iran — A large fire broke out
Tuesday in an oil and wood storage facility
in an industrial city in northern Iran, but
only one person was injured, officials said.
The mayor of Qazvin, Masoud Nosrati,
denied earlier reports that there was an
explosion at the site. He also said firefight-
ers had contained the blaze.
Qazvin, some 130 kilometers (80 miles)
west of the capital, Tehran, is home to many
cargo depots and industrial sites ranging
from glassware workshops to tire factories.
The semiofficial Fars news agency initial-
ly said an explosion had gone off in a wood
and oil storage facility, injuring nearly 50
people. Fars also said police had closed off
roads to the area where the explosion took
place. But Nosrati told the official IRNA
news agency that reports of an explosion
were “incorrect.”
The head of the emergency department
Habibollah Behtooei also rejected earlier
reports about a large number of casualties,
saying nobody was in the facility when the
fire began and only one rescue worker was
Local media in Iran frequently issue con-
flicting reports amid the chaos that breaks
out during emergency situations and it is
difficult to independently confirm them.
Fire breaks out in industrial Iranian city
By John Heilprin and Nicole Winfield
GENEVA— The Vatican revealed Tuesday
that over the past decade, it has defrocked
848 priests who raped or molested children
and sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser
penalties, providing the first ever break-
down of how it handled the more than 3,400
cases of abuse reported to the Holy See
since 2004.
The Vatican’s U.N. ambassador in
Geneva, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi,
released the figures during a second day of
grilling by a U.N. committee monitoring
implementation of the U.N. treaty against
Tomasi insisted that the Holy See was
only obliged to abide by the torture treaty
inside the tiny Vatican City State, which
has a population of only a few hundred peo-
But significantly, he didn’t dispute the
committee’s contention that sexual vio-
lence against children can be considered
torture. Legal experts have said that classi-
fying sexual abuse as torture could expose
the Catholic Church to a new wave of law-
suits since torture cases in much of the
world don’t carry statutes of limitations.
Tomasi also provided statistics about how
the Holy See has adjudicated sex abuse cases
for the past decade. The Vatican in 2001
required bishops and religious superiors to
forward all credible cases of abuse to Rome
for review after determining that they were
shuffling pedophile priests from diocese to
diocese rather than subjecting them to
church trials. Only in 2010 did the Vatican
explicitly tell bishops and superiors to also
report credible cases to police where local
reporting laws require them to.
The Vatican statistics are notable in that
they show how the peaks in numbers over
the years — both of cases reported and sanc-
tions meted out — roughly parallels the
years in which abuse scandals were in the
news. And they showed that far from dimin-
ishing in recent years, the number of cases
reported annually to the Vatican has
remained a fairly constant 400 or so since
2010, the last year the scandal erupted in
public around the globe. These cases, how-
ever, concern mostly abuse that occurred
decades ago.
The Associated Press reported in January
that then-Pope Benedict XVI had defrocked
384 priests in the final two years of his
pontificate, citing documentation that
Tomasi’s delegation had prepared for anoth-
er U.N. hearing monitoring a treaty on the
rights of children. That documentation
matched data contained in the Vatican’s sta-
tistical yearbooks.
Tomasi told the AP on Tuesday that the
January figures were “incomplete” and that
the data he provided to the U.N. committee
Tuesday was the first ever comprehensive
year-by-year breakdown of cases reported
and adjudicated. The figures, however, only
cover cases handled directly by the Holy
See, not those handled by local diocesan tri-
bunals, meaning the total number of sanc-
tioned priests is likely far higher.
The data showed that since 2004, the
Vatican had received some 3,400 cases, had
defrocked 848 priests and sanctioned anoth-
er 2,572 to lesser penalties.

DONETSK, Ukraine — A pro-
Russia militia holding an eastern
Ukrainian city came under further
pressure Tuesday from advancing
government troops, but militants
acted with impunity elsewhere in
the turbulent region.
The foreign ministers of
Ukraine and Russia met Tuesday,
but their open disagreements did
nothing to suggest a diplomatic
solution was near.
Diplomacy was to be taken up
again on Wednesday during a
meeting in Moscow between
Russian President Vladimir Putin
and Swiss President Didier
Burkhalter, whose country cur-
rently chairs the Organization for
Security and Cooperation in
Europe. Russia and the West have
expressed a desire for the OSCE to
play a greater role in defusing the
tensions in Ukraine.
Ukrainian military operations
that began Monday to expunge
pro-Russia forces from the city of
Slovyansk were the interim gov-
ernment’s most ambitious effort
so far to quell weeks of unrest in
Ukraine’s mainly Russian-speak-
ing east.
Four government troops and 30
militants were killed in the gun-
battles, Ukraine’s interior minis-
ter said Tuesday. The pro-Russia
militia said 10 people were killed,
including civilians. There was no
immediate way to reconcile the
In the southwest, Kiev authori-
ties also attempted to reassert con-
trol over the region around
Odessa, a major Black Sea port, by
appointing a new governor on
This nation of 46 million was
thrown into a political crisis after
its Moscow-leaning president,
whose base was in eastern
Ukraine, fled to Russia in February
following months of protests in
Kiev. Across the region in recent
weeks, armed insurgents who have
seized dozens of government

WASHINGTON — Top execu-
tives at major United States com-
panies are reconsidering or with-
drawing their participation in a
Russian international economic
forum amid requests from the
Obama administration in the face
of the growing crisis in Ukraine.
Some executives have been
pressed to cancel their attendance
direct appeals from officials such
as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew
and Valerie Jarrett, a senior advis-
er to President Barack Obama.
The St. Petersburg International
Economic Forum, held this year
from May 22 to May 24, is an
annual affair prized by Russian
President Vladimir Putin as valida-
tion of his country’s economic
Morgan Stanley Chairman
James Gorman, who is listed as a
forum participant, has cancelled
his plans to attend. And Goldman
Sachs chairman and CEO Lloyd
Blankfein, also listed as a partici-
pant in the forum’s website, is
also unlikely to participate, a per-
son briefed on the decision said.
The person was not authorized to
comment publicly by name and
insisted on anonymity.
Among those who participated
in last year’s forum but won’t this
year are Citigroup CEO Michael
Corbat, Alcoa chief executive
Klaus Kleinfeld and
ConocoPhillips CEO Ryan Lance.
Citigroup spokesman Mark
Costiglio said that while Corbat
would not attend, the company
would have several other represen-
tatives at the forum.

have to make their own decisions,
but we believe that the most sen-
ior business executives traveling
to Russia to make high-profile
appearances with Russian govern-
ment officials at events such as
this would send an inappropriate
message, given Russia’s behav-
ior, including its clear failure to
carry out its commitments under
the Geneva accord,” White House
spokeswoman Laura Lucas
Magnuson said.
She said U.S. government offi-
cials will not attend the forum this
The U.S. and the European
Union both ordered sanctions
against Russian officials and indi-
viduals in the aftermath of
Moscow’s annexation of the
Crimean Peninsula. They have
stopped short of imposing broad-
er sanctions on Russia’s econom-
ic sectors, but Obama and German
Chancellor Angela Merkel said
last week that they would move to
harsher penalties if Russia dis-
rupts Ukraine’s May 25 presiden-
tial elections.
