After an ongoing conflict with the city of
Millbrae over several code violations,
FlightCar, the airport business that allows
people to rent out their personal cars,
announced it had moved to South San
However, the announcement surprised
city officials since FlightCar had yet to be
issued a business license.
FlightCar announced Wednesday that it
had moved the business to 240 Dollar Ave.
in the nearby city, a temporary location the
startup is renting while it awaits comple-
tion of permanent space in the city. The
temporary facility fits 10 vehicles. The new
location is not too far from the Millbrae
location and is also relatively close to its
overflow parking lot in Burlingame, the
company said. FlightCar submitted its
applications and is working with the city,
said the company’s attorney Oliver “Lock”
A application should be completed early
next week and the license should be issued
then, said Assistant City Manager Kathy
“Businesses are required to have complet-
ed business license,” Mount said. “Yes,
they were operating without it being com-
pleted. I don’t think they were totally aware
they had not completed everything. ... We
try to work with people to help them if we
can, but we don’t want people to come in
without a business license.”

Contract for plan may be

After Monday night, the San Carlos
City Council may not know whether it

hope there is at least a clearer path carved
The council must decide by August
whether to put on the November ballot a

else. The council indicated a preference to do so at its last

Watchdog: Pipeline safety
oversight agency inadequate
By Joan Lowy
WASHINGTON — The federal agency responsible for
making sure states effectively oversee the safety of natural
gas and other pipelines is failing to do its job, a govern-
ment watchdog said in a report released Friday.
The federal effort is so riddled with weaknesses that it’s
not possible to ensure states are enforcing pipeline safety,

It’s not uncommon to see moms
pushing their babies on a leisurely
stroll through a park, but a group of
women plan to crank up the music and
put on a truly unique Mother’s Day per-
formance at San Mateo’s Central Park
with a strollerobics flash mob.
There’s nothing quite like a mom
who’s proud to be one and shows it,
said Donna Lanam, who organized
Saturday’s performance.
What’s now a nationally used exer-
cise model, Lanam said she created
strollerobics nearly 20 years ago.
Lanam said she’s also a big flash mob
fan and decided merging her choreogra-
phy into a routine was a perfect way for
moms to shine.
“It’s really fun for others to see peo-
ple that are happy. So they’re sharing
their joy, especially on Mother’s Day,
just expressing this happiness that’s
happened to them and it’s a really fun
way to do that. I honestly believe that
people get a kick out of it when they
watch. They can’t believe they’re see-
ing a stroller in this manner,” Lanam
Lanam and a group of brave moms
will meet in the center of Central Park
Saturday, May 10 around noon and put
on a spectacle to highlight the holiday
like no other.
Moms at any age deserve celebration
and recognition but for some with
infants, Sunday will be a first, Lanam

South San Francisco’s LeAnn Thornton
received the national USO Volunteer of the
Quarter Award, out of volunteers from more
than 101 centers in the continental United
Thornton, a full-time executive assistant
to the chief of police at the Hillsborough
Police Department, started volunteering
five years ago and averages 25-30 volunteer
hours a month with the United States
Service Organizations and she holds the
role of family support specialist. The orga-
nization’s primary goal is to lift the spirits
of the nation’s troops and their families.
“It was a huge surprise,” said Thornton,
who has worked for Hillsborough police for
17 years. “It’s not a recognition of me, it’s
a recognition of all. The USO supports so
many different programs and events. It’s not
something that one person earns, it’s the
whole group.”
Thornton is a regular San Francisco
International Airport center volunteer, a
member of the welcome home team and rep-
resents the USO at numerous functions
around Northern California and is a member
of the Families of the Fallen Response
Team. During the last quarter, she worked
nine Families of the Fallen missions, three
homecomings, two deployments and three
other events outside the centers.
“LeAnn exemplifies the pride the Bay Area
community has in our troops and families,”
USO Bay Area Director Jeff Herndon said in
a prepared statement. “She brings that pride
to life with a level of enthusiasm and com-
mitment that creates a
warm and comfortable
environment that makes
our military members feel
like they’re right at
home. The attention she
gives to ensuring all
details have been ade-
quately handled is reflect-
ed in the smiles on the
faces of those she is sup-
Others praised Thornton for her work as
“Having LeAnn as a volunteer with the
USO allows us to greatly increase the num-
ber of troops we serve through our programs
in the Bay Area,” Amy Eilts, USO Bay Area’s
programs and operations manager, said in a
prepared statement. “She is an extremely
valuable member of our team. Her hard work
and dedication to providing quality support
to our men and women in uniform is
Thornton loves a challenge, so figuring
out complicated details for events is one of
her favorite parts of the volunteer position,
she said. Recently, 94 Marines from out of
state needed a place to stay at SFO overnight
and she was able to get two conference
rooms for the group, along with food and
blankets for three weekends in a row.
“The airport has been so supportive in
whatever our needs are,” she said. “You can
call anyone and they’ll say ‘yes.’”
Volunteering has been a part of
Thornton’s life since she was a child in
South San Francisco. Her father served as a
medic in the Korean War, then became a
police officer when he came back.
Hillsborough adopted the 101st Airborne
Division out of Kentucky, which Thornton
currently helps coordinate.
“It’s wonderful to volunteer anywhere but,
if you find your passion, it makes it even
more rewarding,” she said.
The volunteer job does present emotional
challenges as Thornton often comforts fam-
ilies who have lost a loved one in service.
Shortly after she began her volunteer work,
her father passed away.
“I’ve been asked, ‘isn’t it difficult?’” she
said. “I try not to think about it that way. I
like to think about it as someone who needs
support. I like to think that my dad is there
with me keeping me strong. … I just look at
them thinking, ‘you have volunteered to
defend your country. ’ They’re paying the
ultimate price. What I do is simple.”
There aren’t any large bases in this area
and people don’t tend to think about the
military much, she said.
“I will wear the USO shirt at the store and
someone will say ‘what’s a USO?’”
Thornton said. “To educate people, it
inspires them sometimes to know there’s an
organization like this. Do we think of the
[military] families really? They go through
ordeals and have to take care of the home
and family on their own sometimes.”

A judge required a billionaire
technology mogul to testify at a
trial underway over public access
to a popular Northern California
Sun Microsystems co-founder
Vinod Khosla bought the 53-acre
Martin’s Beach property about 35
miles south of San Francisco in
2008 for $37.5 million and closed
the only road to the site, prompt-
ing a lawsuit.
San Mateo County Judge Barbara
Mallach denied a motion on the
first day of the trial on Thursday
that sought to spare Khosla from
testifying. Khosla is scheduled to
testify on Monday afternoon.
Khosla is opposed by The
Surfrider Foundation, which argues
that he is violating the California
Coastal Act by blocking the road
that leads to the beach. Under state
law, the beach is open to the pub-
lic, but without the road access, it
can only be reached from the
Khosla’s attorney, Jeffrey
Essner, says the public was previ-
ously allowed to access the beach
for a fee, so there was no right of
public access.
“This lawsuit represents a clash
between the constitutional right of
a property owner to exclude (the
public) from his private property
and the cause of a political and
activist organization to gain
access,” Essner said in court on
Thursday. Essner is representing
Martin’s Beach LLC, the company
Khosla evidently established to
purchase the beachfront land.
“Surfrider, in this lawsuit, is ask-
ing to protect an access right that
simply doesn’t exist,” Essner
Martin’s Beach LLC painted
over a billboard welcoming peo-
ple to the beach, put up a locked
gate and hired armed guards to
keep people out, according to The
Surfrider Foundation’s lawsuit.
Those steps constituted devel-
opment and required a permit from
the California Coastal
Commission, the lawsuit says.
“This case is about compliance
with the coastal act,” said Eric
Buescher, who is co-counsel for
Surfrider. “It’s about ensuring that
violations are punished.”
California has seen other battles
over public access to the coast.
In the most famous example,
film and music mogul David Geffen
fought for decades to block public
access to the beach in front of his
Malibu compound. In 2007, he
finally changed course and a public
easement was added to his proper-
t y.

AChechnyan man who reported-
ly said “This has nothing to do
with Boston” after being arrested
for burglarizing a vehicle and
assaulting the 13-year-old boy
who tried stopping him was sen-
tenced Friday to three years proba-
tion and will also serve one year in
county jail.
Alexander Dombrovic, 22, of
Palo Alto, pleaded no contest to
felony charges of assault and auto
burglary. Prosecutors sought a
maximum of
two years and
eight months
but the court
capped the deal
at two years.
Dombrovic will
also pay
$3,000 in resti-
tution for dam-
ages caused,
according to
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested
Dombrovic April 21, 2013, in
Portola Valley after a teen reported
finding him rummaging though the
family’s Range Rover which was
parked in the driveway a little after
10 p.m. The boy allegedly went
outside to investigate noise of a
car pulling in and asked the man
looking through his father’s car
what he was doing.
Dombrovic allegedly yelled
something incoherent and charged
at the boy with an aluminum bat,
swinging it tomahawk-style on his
shoulder, before hopping into his
own SUV and fleeing. The boy was
bruised but otherwise uninjured.
Deputies in the area for other rea-
sons responded to the call and saw
Dombrovic driving on the wrong
side of the road with his lights off,
causing them to swerve.
Inside the vehicle, deputies
reported finding 129 pieces of mail
from 18 different victims and said
five locked mailboxes in the area
had been smashed open.
The officers reported
Dombrovic making the comment
about Boston, a reference to the
widely publicized bombing at the
Boston Marathon.
In December 2013, Dombrovic
appeared in court on charges of
robbery, assault, vandalism, bur-
glary and reckless driving. He
pleaded not guilty and asked for a
court-appointed attorney. Bail was
set at $50,000.
Dombrovic will begin his
prison term June 21. During the
sentencing Friday, Dombrovic
addressed the court, while the par-
ents of the victim presented a letter
to the judge, according to

Firefighter in
Asiana rescue files lawsuit
A San Francisco firefighter
accused of accidentally running
over a passenger thrown from the
wreckage of an Asiana Airlines
flight that crashed at San Francisco
International Airport filed a lawsuit
Friday against the San Francisco
Fire Department.
Elyse Duckett, 49, alleges she is
being made a scapegoat for larger
failures in the rescue effort follow-
ing the July 6 crash. The lawsuit
was filed in San Francisco Superior
It says another rescue vehicle
struck 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan
before Duckett’s, but only
Duckett’s name was released as
someone responsible for running
over the girl.
Duckett, a 24-year veteran of the
force, seeks unspecified damages.
San Francisco fire department
officials declined to comment.
The San Mateo County coroner
ruled in July 2013 that Ye survived
the plane crash but died from multi-
ple blunt injuries consistent with
being run over by a vehicle. Federal
officials continue to investigate.
Asian Airlines Flight 214 was
trying to land on a clear Saturday
morning when the tail of the
Boeing 777 touched the seawall at
the end of the runway, causing the
plane to spin out of control. The
plane burst into flames, and 180 of
the 291 passengers and crews sus-
tained injuries. Three passengers
Local brief
By Jim Kuhnhenn
by bargain-priced displays of
women’s wear and patio lighting,
President Barack Obama came to a
Wal-Mart store in Silicon Valley
on Friday to praise new steps by
businesses and communities to
deploy solar energy, showcasing
efforts to combat climate change
that don’t rely on a disinclined
Obama said more than 300 com-
panies and state and local govern-
ments have pledged to use solar
technology, and he unveiled his
own executive actions aimed at
increasing energy efficiency with
a goal of reducing U.S. reliance on
carbon fuels. The two tracks under-
scored Obama’s strategy of side-
stepping Congress to advance his
own agenda, but they also illus-
trated the limits of his reach in a
bitterly divided government.
“The commitments we’re
announcing today prove that there
are cost-effective ways to tackle
climate change and create jobs at
the same time,” Obama said at a
sprawling Wal-Mart store in
Mountain View.
The solar effort will power the
equivalent of 130,000 homes, the
White House said, while Obama’s
administrative actions could
reduce carbon pollution in an
amount equal to taking 80 million
cars off the road for one year. The
White House also announced that
long-delayed energy efficiency
standards for walk-in coolers and
freezers have finally been com-
Ticking off a list of economic
and environmental benefits he
attributed to solar technology,
Obama cast the commitments as
part of a broader campaign to
reduce American energy depend-
ence, create jobs in renewable
energy and lower heat-trapping
emissions blamed for global
“This is what you call a win-
win-win,” Obama told about 250
store employees as he wrapped up
a three-day swing through
California focused heavily on
raising money for Democrats in
advance of November’s midterm
Tweaking the mostly
Republican opponents of his
energy policies in Congress,
Obama lamented that lawmakers
have “not always been as vision-
ary on these issues as we would
like.” That’s why he’s seizing
opportunities this year to act uni-
laterally to advance those goals,
Obama said.
“Unfortunately, inside of
Washington, we still have some
climate deniers who shout loud,”
Obama said. “But they’re wasting
people’s time on a settled debate.”
It’s Obama who is wasting time,
responded Senate Minority Leader
Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who
argued that if Obama really wanted
to promote energy independence,
he would approve the Keystone XL
pipeline and reverse course on
policies cracking down on coal.

Two deer found dead in
Hillsborough, mountain lion suspected
Two recent incidents of deer being found
partially eaten on Tartan Trail Road in
Hillsborough seem to be connected with a
mountain lion, according to Hillsborough
There was one incident on Wednesday and
another Friday, said Hillsborough police
Capt. Caroline Serrato.
The most recent incident was reported by
Edmond Sasounian, who lives on Tartan
Trail Road. Sasounian reported the deer was
found in his backyard with about one-third
of it eaten. He called the police and the
Peninsula Humane Society and wants his
neighbors to know of the incident so they
can take proper precautions.
PHS spokesman Scott Delucchi said deer
sometimes die in another way like a vehicle
collision and then are eaten by wildlife and
that mountain lions typically bring their
kill to less populated areas. He also added
the humane society gets calls of a found deer
carcass that could have been eaten by a
mountain lion every few years.
Serrato said mountain lion sightings
come in cycles and urges residents to not
approach a mountain lion when seen and to
avoid walking at dawn or dusk.

WASHINGTON — Noah sailed past Jacob
to become the most popular baby name for
boys in 2013, ending Jacob’s 14-year run at
the top. Sophia was the most popular baby
name for girls for the third straight year.
The Social Security Administration
announced the most popular baby names
Friday. Noah was followed by Liam, Jacob,
Mason and William. Sophia was followed by
Emma, Olivia, Isabella and Ava.
The rise of Noah and Liam highlights a
trend toward more smooth-sounding baby
names, said Laura Wattenberg, creator of
“You compare Jacob with all its hard,
punchy consonants, versus Noah and Liam,
you can really see where style is heading,”
Wattenberg said.
She also noted that the most popular baby
names aren’t nearly as popular as they used to
be. For example, a little more than 18,000
babies born last year were named Noah. In
1950, when James was No. 1, there were
more than 86,000 newborns with that name.
About 21,000 newborns were named
Sophia last year. In 1950, more than
80,000 were named Linda, the top name
for girls that year.
“In the past, most parents were picking
from a pretty well-defined set of names,”
Wattenberg said. “Literally for hundreds of
years, the English royal names dominated.
You had John and Mary and James and
“Today,” she said, “we get names every-
Jacob first rose to No. 1 in 1999. In the
45 years before that, Michael was king
for all but one.
There has been a lot more variety among
the girls. Mary dominated the first half of
the 20th century. But in the past two
decades, Emily, Emma, Isabella and
Jessica have all spent time at the top.

lists of the top
1,000 baby
names for
each year,
dating to

baby names that year were John and Mary.
John is now No. 27 and Mary has fallen to
No. 121.
Social Security also charts the fastest-ris-

Rules proposed for
immigrant driver’s license
SANTAANA — California on Friday pro-
posed requiring immigrants in the country
illegally to present foreign government-
issued identification to obtain a driver’s
license or go through an interview process
using other documents to prove their identi-
t y.
The move would make the state the first in
the country to offer a secondary review
process for immigrants using alternate docu-
ments, such as marriage, tax and school
records, California’s Department of Motor
Vehicles said in a statement.
Under the proposal, California would
require fewer documents when those present-
ed are very secure. An interview with a DMV
investigator would be required when alternate
documents are used to prevent fraud.
“We heard from individuals that they may
not have the more secure documents,” Kristin
Triepke, policy branch chief for the DMV’s
license operations division, told reporters in
a conference call. “That is why we are pro-
posing to have our investigative staff pro-
vide this review.”
Marine Corps to
review raid on law offices
SAN DIEGO — Military criminal investi-
gators raided Marine Corps defense counsel
offices at Camp Pendleton, opening case files
during a 2 1/2-hour search and potentially
compromising scores of cases, the attorney
who oversees Marine defense lawyers in the
region said Friday.
Investigators raided the offices May 2 in
search of a cellphone tied to a case being
tried at the base, north of San Diego, Lt. Col.
Clay Plummer told the Associated Press.
“This is just unacceptable,” said Plummer,
the Marine Corps’ regional defense counsel
for the West. “Just think of the U.S. federal
Marshals or FBI raiding a public defender’s
office, that’s what this is the equivalent to.
It’s crazy.”

WASHINGTON — Despite Democratic
complaints, Republicans jumped into a new
election-season investigation of the deadly
Benghazi assault on Friday, naming major-
ity members of a special House committee.
Democrats mulled a boycott of the panel,
which is inspiring bitter partisanship
before even starting its work.
House Speaker John Boehner immediate-
ly took to social media to highlight his
seven-member Republican team.
Democrats have five seats to fill, if they
decide to participate at all in what Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi derided as a “political
“For whatever reason, everything seems
to be partisan,” acknowledged Rep. Trey
Gowdy, a second-term Republican and for-
mer prosecutor from South Carolina whom
Boehner picked last week to head the com-
mittee. Gowdy expressed his hope that a
fair Benghazi investigation would tran-
scend politics, but he also suggested
Democrats would have to accept that “one
side gets more strikes than the other side
when you’re constituting a jury. ”
The Republicans’ roster includes veterans
of previous House examinations of the
Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed a U.S.
ambassador and three other Americans.
The House approved the formation of the
committee Thursday, with every
Republican voting in favor and only seven
Democrats crossing party lines to join
them. It is the eighth investigation thus far
on Benghazi. The panel is authorized to
work through the end of the year, past
November’s midterm elections when the
GOP hopes to win control of the Senate.

WASHINGTON — Genetically modified
foods have been around for years, but most
Americans have no idea if they are eating
The Food and Drug Administration says
they don’t need to be labeled, so the state of
Vermont has moved forward on its own. On
Thursday, Gov. Peter Shumlin signed legisla-
tion making his state the first to require label-
ing of genetically modified organisms, or
What about the rest of the country? And
does labeling matter?
There’s a lot of confusion about genetical-
ly modified foods and their safety.
Some people feel very strongly about
GMOs. Opponents, who at times have
protested in the streets, say consumers
have the right to know whether their food
contains GMOs. The Vermont law is their
first major victory.
The food industry and companies that
genetically engineer seeds have pushed back
against the labeling laws, saying GMOs are
safe and labels would be misleading.
“It’s really polarizing,” says New York
University’s Marion Nestle, a professor of
nutrition and food studies. “There’s no middle
Alook at the debate and some of the facts
about genetically modified foods:
GMOs are not really a “thing,” Nestle says,
and that’s hard for the average consumer to
grasp. You can’t touch or feel a GMO.
Genetically modified foods are plants or
animals that have had genes copied from
other plants or animals inserted into their
DNA. It’s not a new idea — humans have been
tinkering with genes for centuries through
selective breeding. Think dogs bred to be
more docile pets, cattle bred to be beefier or
tomatoes bred to be sweeter. Turkeys were
bred to have bigger breasts — better for
Thanksgiving dinner.
What’s different about genetically modified
or engineered foods is that the manipulation
is done in a lab. Engineers don’t need to wait
for nature to produce a desired gene; they
speed up the process by transferring a gene
from one plant or animal to another.
What are the desired traits? Most of the
nation’s corn and soybeans are genetically
engineered to resist pests and herbicides. A
papaya in Hawaii is modified to resist a virus.
The FDAis considering an application from a
Massachusetts company to approve a geneti-
cally engineered salmon that would grow
faster than traditional salmon.
Most of the genetically modified corn and
soybeans are used in cattle feed, or are made
into ingredients like corn oil, corn starch,
high fructose corn syrup or soybean oil.
Even in some of those products, the manu-
facturing process itself may eventually
remove some of the modified genes.
Afew fruits and vegetables are engineered
— the Hawaiian papaya and some squash and
zucchini, for example. Only a small amount
of sweet corn, the corn we eat, is genetically
But there’s no genetically modified meat or
fish, like the fast-growing salmon, currently
in the market for human consumption; the
Food and Drug Administration has yet to
approve any.
The vast majority of scientific research has
found genetically engineered foods to be gen-
erally safe.
An Italian scientist’s review of 10 years of
research, published in 2013, concluded that
the scientific research conducted so far has
not detected “any significant hazard directly
connected with the use of GM crops.”
Genetically modified foods confuse consumers
Common Application
makes changes after tough year
WASHINGTON — Creators of the Common Application
for college admissions said Friday they have made changes
that should prevent snags that had the high school class of
2014 tweeting horror stories.
The Common Application is accepted by more than 500
colleges and universities and allows students to apply to
multiple schools at once, but it had a rough applications
season after new technology was rolled out last year that
created many headaches. About 750,000 students submitted
3.3 million applications last year.
Officials said they’ve hired a new interim chief executive
officer, conducted a review of what went wrong and put inter-
nal checks in place.
“Given the year we just had, we can’t be complacent about
any of this,” Eric Furda, the dean of admissions at the
University of Pennsylvania, said during a media briefing.
Furda is president-elect of the board of the not-for-profit
Common Application membership organization.
The most common problems experienced by students were
related to essay formatting, difficulty submitting an appli-
cation and the inability to determine if they had paid appli-
cation fees, Furda said. Higher education institutions com-
plained about not being able to pull up documents that had
been submitted.
U.S. Rep.: D.C. pot law
raises federal-local questions
WASHINGTON — Holding up a mock joint from his perch
as chairman of a House Oversight subcommittee, a
Republican congressman said a new law decriminalizing
marijuana possession in the nation’s capital raises plenty
of questions, but he hasn’t decided whether Congress should
Rep. John Mica of Florida said at a hearing Friday that he
was not singling out the District of Columbia’s marijuana
policy for scrutiny, and he offered no opinion on its merits.
After the hearing, he described his own position on mari-
juana decriminalization as “evolving.”
Mayor Vincent Gray signed a bill in March that makes
possession of less than one ounce of pot a civil offense sub-
ject to a $25 fine.
Mica, brandishing an imitation marijuana cigarette, noted
that a person could roll more than 20 joints with an ounce
of pot. He asked what would happen if someone were found
with pot on a street bordering the National Mall, which is
federal property.
The acting U.S. Park Police chief said his officers could
still arrest someone under those circumstances, while D.C.
police said they would not.
Scientists still working to ID victims from 9/11
NEWYORK — Thousands of vacuum-sealed plastic pouch-
es filled with bits of bone rest in a Manhattan laboratory.
These are the last unidentified fragments of the people who
died in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
On Saturday, the 7,930 pouches are to be moved in a
solemn procession from the city medical examiner’s office
to the new trade center site. They will be kept in a bedrock
repository 70 feet underground in the new Sept. 11
Memorial Museum that opens May 21.
The remains will be accessible only to families of the dead
and to the forensic scientists who are still trying to match
the bone slivers to DNA from the more than 1,000 victims
who never came home and have never been identified.
“Our commitment to return the remains to the families is
as great today as it was in 2001,” said Mark Desire, who
oversees the four-member World Trade Center team in the
city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Chicken little
As hard as it is to believe, there are
still those who insist that scientific
warnings about climate change are
just a “hoax” (John Bloomstine’s let-
ter, “Climate change believers and
opposing point of view,” in the May
6 edition of the Daily Journal).
Finding one member of the scientific
community to agree with that posi-
tion, or even a handful of them, is
nowhere near the amount needed to
counter the 99 percent of them that
The issue is not whether or not
there is a serious occurrence of cli-
mate change; that has been estab-
lished with strong evidence. The
issue is what is causing it. Is it a natu-
ral periodic change, or is it some-
thing we ourselves are causing with
the amount of carbon dioxide and
methane gas we produce? Since most
of us agree that air pollution, whatev-
er the cause, is something we should
do all we can to minimize, why get
into convoluted arguments about it?
China should be a good example of
what happens when those environ-
mental problems are not dealt with.
Those of us who are worried about ris-
ing sea levels as the polar snow caps
melt and the amount of toxic chemi-
cals in the air and water we breath and
drink do not consider such concerns
as our “sacred cow,” as Bloomstine
says. Instead we think it is too dan-
gerous a subject to just be ignored,
and have little faith in the idea that
denial is at all helpful. If we are
wrong, no harm done, really, but if
they are wrong, well, you get the pic-

Letters to the editor
By Linda Giampa
he myth that there is no Lyme
disease in California was fur-
ther dispelled when the CDC’s
Emerging Infectious Diseases journal
recently published data showing that
ticks carrying Lyme disease-causing
bacteria are widespread in the Bay
Area. This troubling misconception
has been a significant barrier to
important steps toward prevention,
diagnosis and treatment in our com-
Most people in California don’t
realize that tick season here is year-
round due to our temperate climate.
While tick season back East peaks in
early summer, Californians need to be
vigilant year-round. Baby nymphs,
which are smaller than a poppy seed
and very difficult to detect, carry
Lyme-bacteria and emerge in spring
and early summer. The somewhat-easi-
er-to-see adult ticks are active from
the fall through spring. Notably, all
tick bites numb the skin, meaning
that both young and adult ticks may
go unnoticed.
Early diagnosis and treatment is
key. Another pervasive myth of Lyme
disease is related to the tell-tale rash.
Many patients never get a skin rash
and those that do may not get the dis-
tinctive bull’s-eye shape. Therefore it
is critical that Californians also know
the symptoms of Lyme’s early stages
which can include headaches, flu-like
ailments, joint pain, fatigue and
sometimes a rash that has many dif-
ferent shapes, only one of which
looks like a bull’s-
Symptoms of
Lyme disease wors-
en and the disease
becomes increas-
ingly difficult to
treat as it progress-
es. People suffering
from its later
symptoms may wrestle for years with
complications like paralysis, agoniz-
ing joint pain, nervous system prob-
lems, inflammation of the brain and
inflammation of the heart.
More research needs to be done. For
one, Lyme disease lacks an effective
diagnostic tool. Even the gold stan-
dard diagnostic (ELISA/Western Blot)
misses up to 60 percent of early-stage
acute Lyme cases. This delay can
make prompt treatment difficult, and
can lead to the later more debilitating
stages of the disease, which is far
more challenging to cure. There are
half a million Americans, possibly as
many as a million who suffer from the
debilitating later stage symptoms,
according to Bay Area Lyme
Foundation estimates.
We need to dispel these myths and
get the word out so that everyone
knows the precautions to take against
Lyme disease, regularly performs
“tick checks” after being outdoors,
understands how to remove a tick
safely and is aware of its early symp-
toms. Fortunately, the number of
human cases is still low on the West
Coast, and we need to keep it that
Founded by a group of Bay Area
business and community leaders
alarmed at the number of people in
their community who had Lyme dis-
ease, Bay Area Lyme Foundation col-
laborates with world-class scientists
and institutions nationwide to accel-
erate medical breakthroughs for Lyme.
The organization also funds studies to
document tick infection rates in
California and conducts programs to
communicate the importance of pre-
vention and early treatment.
May is Lyme Disease Awareness
month. This has particular impor-
tance here in the Bay Area because of
the need for awareness. May is also
the time when summer camps are
around the corner and we tend to be
outdoors more, making prevention all
the more timely. So spread the word
about Lyme, take steps to prevent it,
know its symptoms and support
research to make Lyme disease easy to
diagnose and simple to cure.

Dispelling myths about Lyme disease in California
Silly season
he silly season is here. In just a few weeks,
California voters will decide which candidates will
move on to November’s top two runoff. With vote-
by-mail ballots arriving, campaigns are ramping up their
spending and voter communications. Mailboxes are full of
fliers, social media feeds are full of posts and political ads
are breaking in to every conceivable type of programming.
But if that isn’t enough, “con-
trast” ads are raising their ugly
heads. Or, as most of us call
them, negative political attacks.
Negative attacks have a long
history in America. Commentary
magazine in its May 2014 issue
notes that the 1800 race between
Thomas Jefferson and John
Adams was vicious and nasty.
One pro-Adams newspaper even
proclaimed that if Jefferson were
elected, “Murder, robbery, rape,
adultery and incest will be open-
ly taught and practiced, the air
will be rent with the cries of the distressed, the soil will be
soaked with blood and the nation black with crimes.”
Strong stuff, thank God we haven’t sunk that low yet.
However, it’s still early.
Already, local candidates have taken to bashing their
opponents. In Silicon Valley’s 17th Congressional
District, incumbent Mike Honda has raised the specter that
fellow Democrat Ro Khanna will support, “the same failed
Republican policies that hurt our economy in the first place
and puts corporations and the wealthy ahead of the middle
Khanna answers that Honda should give back money
received from Pacific Gas and Electric over his 14 years in
Congress and insinuating that Honda cares about profit s
more than people saying, “I believe such steps are neces-
sary to demonstrate to your constituents that you put the
rights and safety of California consumers ahead of corpo-
rate PAC contributions.”
Over in the East Bay, accusations in state Senate District
10 are flying thick and fast. In an attack by Democrat
Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, Mary Hayashi was labeled
“Mug Shot Mary” for her conviction in stealing $2,500
worth of clothes from Neiman Marcus. Soon thereafter, in
what must be a complete coincidence, the East Bay Express
reported, “Aviolent feud between the wife of a former East
Bay state assemblymember and the ex-chief of staff of a
current one [Wieckowski] is raising questions about the use
of taxpayer funds on what appears to have been a private —
albeit, salacious — dispute.” Oh, the drama!
Republicans can play these games too.
This week, gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly accused
his opponent of “submission” to Sharia law, the Islamic
code that governs Muslim personal, business, political and
religious behavior. This is a bizarre claim on its face since
his opponent, Neel Kashkari, is Midwestern born, of
Indian descent and a Hindu. Muslims and Hindus have been
at loggerheads for centuries. The 2008 Muslim attacks in
Mumbai that killed 164 are part of this cycle of violence,
as are attacks on Muslims in the run-up to India’s ongoing
presidential election.
Donnelly’s outlandish claim rests on the fact that while
he was assistant treasury secretary in the George W. Bush
administration, Kashkari spent five minutes giving an offi-
cial welcome to an academic conference designed to under-
stand Sharia compliant banking and its role in the world’s
financial crisis.
Nevertheless, Kashkari’s brown skin and a slightly odd
way of spelling his name are enough for Donnelly and his
supporters to go off into crazy land. The attack is so over
the top that the Alameda County Republican Party in a
Facebook post said that the Donnelly forces were using,
“bigotry, racism and outright ignorance” and that their
attacks are “innuendo and false reporting.”
To be fair, Kashkari has gone after Donnelly as well. Not
only in response to the Sharia charges, saying that
Donnelly, “doesn’t understand the most basic elements of
what he’s talking about,” but also in his “Tim Donnelly
Facts” website. There he highlights others’ criticism of
Donnelly’s voting to save corrupt redevelopment agencies
as making him the “most Socialist” candidate. Tim
Donnelly may be many things, but he is far from being
even remotely close to a Socialist. It’s a dumb claim and
Kashkari should never have repeated it.
Unfortunately, the barrage of negative political attacks
will continue into November. The best way to deal with
them is to heed the words of Marvin Gaye in “I Heard it
Through the Grapevine,” “Believe half of what you see,
son, and none of what you hear.” That’s sound advice, not
silly at all.

NEWYORK — The Dow Jones indus-
trial average hit a record on Friday, but
without much conviction after a chop-
py day of trading during which
investors couldn’t make up their minds
whether to buy or sell.
The blue-chip index flitted between
small gains and losses at least a dozen
times, and ended up beating its old
record set last week by less than 2.5
points, or just 0.02 percent.
“The market is having trouble find-
ing direction here,” said David Kelley,
JPMorgan Funds’ chief global strate-
gist. But he added, “I believe for the
rest of the year, a warming economy ...
will push the market up.”
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
also eked out a gain, but is no higher
than it was in early March, after waf-
fling between weekly gains and losses
most of that time.
On Friday, stocks fell broadly from
the open as investors took in the latest
corporate earnings reports. It was an
odd day in which winners became los-
ers, and vice versa.
Stocks of utilities have been in favor
lately because of their stable earnings
and fat dividends, but investors dumped
them Friday, and they closed 1.4 per-
cent lower. That was the biggest drop
of the S&P 500’s ten sectors.
By contrast, a few big-name Internet
stocks that had been crushed in a recent
sell-off in that industry managed
healthy gains.
Netflix announced it was raising
prices for new subscribers of its
streaming video service and investors
cheered, lifting its stock 2 percent.
Tesla Motors and LinkedIn, both down
more than 10 percent since April, rose
2 percent and 2.5 percent, respective-
l y.
The Dow edged up 32.37 points for
the day, or 0.2 percent, to 16,583.34.
That narrowly beat its previous record
high of 16,580.84 set on April 30.
The S&P500 index rose 2.85 points,
or 0.2 percent, to 1,878.48. The
Nasdaq composite rose 20.37 points,
or 0.5 percent, to 4,071.87.
Mixed messages from earnings
reports left investors without clear
CBS fell $1.27, or 2 percent, to
$56.74 after reporting late Thursday
that its first-quarter revenue had fallen
short of analysts’ projections. Sales
from advertising slumped 12 percent.
Ralph Lauren dropped $3.18, or 2
percent, to $148.81 after its forecast
for sales for the current quarter disap-
pointed investors.
Hilton Worldwide Holdings rose 43
cents, or 2 percent, to $23.07 after
exceeding analysts’ expectation for
earnings. And Gap rose $1.28, or 3 per-
cent, $40.52. The clothes store chain
reported strong sales for April and
issued a forecast for the current quarter
that was better than investors were
With most companies out with their
results, first-quarter earnings for the
S&P 500 are expected to rise 3.4 per-
cent, according to S&P Capital IQ.
That’s a respectable performance but
still down from a nearly 8 percent gain
in the fourth quarter.
Companies reporting earnings next
week include Macy’s, Deere & Co.,
Cisco Systems and Wal-Mart and
Investors were also watching the sit-
uation in Ukraine. On Friday, fierce
fighting in eastern Ukraine left at least
seven dead. Pro-Russian militants are
pressing ahead with plans for an inde-
pendence referendum this weekend
despite objections from Moscow.
Erik Davidson, deputy chief invest-
ment officer of Wells Fargo Private
Bank, said investors are still jittery
five years after the financial crisis sent
stocks tumbling to 12-year lows.
“There is always this worry about
what is the next shoe to drop,” he said.
“So places we only learned about
before in geography class become
important: Crimea, Ukraine.”
The yield on the 10-year Treasury
note rose to 2.62 percent from 2.61
percent on Thursday.

WASHINGTON — U.S. employers
advertised slightly fewer jobs and
slowed hiring a bit in March, though
the declines came after healthy gains
the previous month. The figures sug-
gest the job market is improving in
fits and starts.
The Labor Department said Friday
that employers posted 4 million jobs
in March, down 2.7 percent from
February. But February’s total nearly
matched November’s for the highest
level of openings since January 2008,
when the Great Recession was just
The report also showed that
February’s data for hiring and quits was
revised much higher, indicating that
the job market was in better shape that
month than initially estimated. It’s a
good sign when more people quit their
jobs, because most people do so to
take a new position, frequently at
higher pay.
Quitting also opens up a position
that someone out of work can take.
The number of people quitting their
jobs in both February and March
reached the highest level since July
2008, Friday’s report said.
Total hiring, meanwhile, dipped 1.6
percent to 4.63 million in March.
That’s below the 5 million monthly
hires that are typical for a healthy job
market. But it’s 7.5 percent higher
than 12 months earlier.
And nearly 4.7 million people were
hired in February, almost matching
September’s total, which was the most
since June 2008.
“Overall, despite the decline in
vacancies, the fundamentals of the
labor market continue to improve,
supporting steady recovery,” said
Jeremy Schwartz, an analyst at Credit
Last week, the government said that
employers added 288,000 jobs in
April, the most in 2 1/2 years, and the
unemployment rate fell to 6.3 percent
from 6.7 percent.
Friday’s report, known as the Job
Openings and Labor Turnover survey,
offers a more complete picture of the
job market. It includes additional data
on the number of people quitting or
being laid off. And it reports figures for
overall hiring. The monthly jobs
report provides a net total of job gains
or losses.
The additional data in the JOLTs
report illustrates how much turnover is
happening in the job market. Stronger
job markets usually include a greater
amount of churn, with more people
quitting and greater overall hiring.
Janet Yellen, chair of the Federal
Reserve, has said the central bank
monitors the job openings, quits and
hiring figures as key indicators of the
job market’s health. The figures help
the Fed decide how to manage short-
term interest rates and other efforts to
foster financial stability.
There are about 2.6 unemployed
Americans for each open job, the
report shows. That average has slowly
been approaching the 2 to 1 ratio that
is typical of healthier economies. It
reached 6.7 in July 2009, just after the
recession ended.
U.S. job openings slip in
March after strong gain

SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix is rais-
ing its Internet video prices by $1 per
month for new customers and giving
its current U.S. subscribers a two-year
break from the higher rates.
The changes mean anyone signing
up for Netflix’s video subscription
service beginning Friday will pay $9
per month for in the U.S. The old price
of $8 per month will continue until
May 2016 for Netflix’s existing 36
million U.S. subscribers.
The price increase, Netflix’s first in
nearly three years, isn’t a surprise. The
Los Gatos, California-based company
disclosed its plans to raise its rates last
month without specifying the precise
Netflix Inc. says its needs more
money so it can afford to pay for more
original programming along the lines
of its Emmy award-winning political
drama “House of Cards” and critically
acclaimed series “Orange Is the New
Black.” The emphasis on video that
can only been seen on Netflix has
become a major drawing card for the
company as it strives to create the
Internet’s equivalent of Time Warner
Inc.’s HBO cable network.
By delaying the price increase for
current subscribers, Netflix hopes to
avoid the backlash that it faced in
2011 when it raised its prices by as
much as 60 percent.
The company lost about 800,000
customers within a few months in an
exodus that alarmed investors, caus-
ing Netflix’s stock to plunge by more
than 80 percent in a year. Netflix
eventually lured back subscribers and
revived its customer growth, lifting
its stock to record highs earlier this
Netflix’s stock rose $2.65 to
$324.31 in early afternoon trading
Friday. The shares have fallen by 13
percent so far this year.
Prices for Netflix’s rapidly shrink-
ing DVD-by-mail service aren’t chang-
ing. Those rates range from $5 to $20
per month, depending on how many
DVDs are being rented and whether a
Blu-ray option is included.

Just like the Adele song, Terra Nova set
fire to the rain.
With Thursday’s practice cancelled due to
rain, the Tigers held a team meeting heading
into their biggest game of the year Friday
night at Burlingame.
The pep talk paid off, as Terra Nova (8-4
in Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division,
15-10 overall) closed out its league schedule
by topping Burlingame 5-2. With the win,
the Tigers claim a co-championship with
Carlmont in the PAL Bay Division.
“We were supposed to practice [Thursday]
but it was raining,” Terra Nova junior Austin
Youngsdale said. “We didn’t have a practice
but we just had a talk and just talked about
how to come out with fire and intensity, and
that’s exactly what we did.”
Burlingame couldn’t hold off Terra Nova’s
intensity in the early innings. The Tigers
rallied for two runs in the first and two more
in the second.
With or without a comfortable margin on
the scoreboard, Tigers starting pitcher
Anthony Gordon looked poised to put his
team on his shoulders and lead them to the
division crown. And that’s precisely what
the senior right-hander did.
Despite a minor hiccup in the fourth
inning, Gordon was masterful in just his
second start of the year. The anchor of the
pitching staff a year ago, Gordon missed a
good portion of the season with a two-
month layoff after injuring himself trying
to pull a “Jackass” stunt over the winter.
The junior took a 20-foot fall while
attempting to jump off a roof and into a
swimming pool.
Gordon broke his non-pitching wrist and
fractured his pelvis. After undergoing sur-
gery Feb. 17, he was cleared to play exactly
two months later. Yet he didn’t make his
first start until May 2, firing four shutout
innings as Terra Nova went on to suffer a
pivotal 4-2 loss to rival Half Moon Bay.
Junior right-hander Ray Falk took the loss
against the Cougars that day, working just
1/3 of an inning while surrendering four runs
Terra Nova earns share of Bay title
College of San Mateo third baseman Brooke Ramsey anchored an outstanding defensive
performance in Friday’s Super Regional opener as the Lady Bulldogs infield recorded 13
groundouts over six innings in a 9-0 win over Ohlone.
By Terry Bernal
College of San Mateo managed to add some
dramatics to its 9-0 win over Ohlone in
Friday’s Northern California Super Regional
The Lady Bulldogs entered the bottom of the
sixth leading 5-0, but after the first three bat-
ters reached base, freshman Taylor Cruse
launched a walk-off home run to left field to
end it via mercy rule. For a lineup hitting .430
as a team, Cruse — CSM’s No. 9 hitter — was
about as unlikely a heroine CSM could muster.
Yet the freshman didn’t even realize she had
won the game for the Lady Bulldogs until she
rounded third base and saw teammates Brittany
Wilkerson and Lelani Akai waiting to greet her
at home plate.
“I wasn’t even thinking it,” Cruse said. “I
was like, ‘We’re in the sixth inning, we’ve
still got another one.’ So, I had no idea. After I
hit it, [my teammates] were like, ‘Game over.’
I was like, ‘Wait. Why?’”
Other than the thrilling finish, it was busi-
ness as usual as the Lady Bulldogs captured
their 40th overall win of the year. With the
win, top-seeded CSM advances through the
winners’ bracket of the round-robin, double-
elimination tournament to take on No at noon
Saturday. The Bulldogs will face No. 5 San
Joaquin Delta at noon Saturday. Delta beat No.
4 Sacramento 11-4 in the other first-round
game Friday.
CSM starting pitcher Ashlynne Neil went
the distance Friday to improve her record to
23-1. The sophomore right-hander allowed
just three hits over six innings of work to tab
the shutout. She has now rattled off 23 consec-
utive shutout innings dating back to April 15
against De Anza.
Neil was masterful in that she didn’t allow a
ball in the air throughout the game. She
recorded five strikeouts and 13 groundouts.
“That’s a good sign on a windy day,” said
CSM head coach Nicole Borg.
With the wind gusting out to right-center,
CSM got on the board early by virtue of some
small-ball tactics.

While Burlingame and Menlo-Atherton
will likely battle for Peninsula Athletic
League Bay Division supremacy in the pool
at the Bay Division swimming champi-
onships Saturday, the San Mateo girls’ team
will be the ones to beat at the Ocean
Division championships at Hillsdale.
The Lady Bearcats won both the Ocean
Division dual meet title and the team crown
at the Ocean Division championships in
2013 and are looking to do the same this
Just like last year, the San Mateo girls
went undefeated during the Ocean Division
season, but co-coach Rich Farley is not
ready to crown his team just yet.
“I’m not assuming anything,” Farley said.
But given the roster the Bearcats have, it
would take a pretty big upset to deny them
They dominated the regular season and
now have won 16 Ocean Division dual meets
in a row — 8-0 last year and 8-0 this season.
And this year’s performance might have
been even better.
“It was a little easier than we expected than
last year,” Farley said. “Maybe we hit cer-
tain teams at the right time (this year). Our
closest matches were 10 to 15 points (differ-
ence). Last year, we had much closer match-
What allowed the Bearcats to pull even fur-
ther away from the competition this season
was the addition of a talented freshman to go
along with a strong core of returners.
Larissa Tam is a freshman in age only
because she swims faster than her age. She
will be the odds-on favorite to win the Ocean
titles in the 200 individual medley and the
100 breaststroke.
In listening to Farley, it would be a monu-
mental upset if she didn’t win those races.
“She will win the 200 IM and 100 breast,”
Farley said. “For the 100 breast, she might
well be the best breast stroker in the PAL
this year. She already has three or four CCS
(qualifying) times already. ”

The Serra and St. Ignatius tennis teams
split their two regular-season matches by
identical scores — 4-3 — as they tied for
second in the West Catholic Athletic
The rubber match was Friday and, as if the
rivalry between the two wasn’t enough, it
was spiced up by the fact Friday’s meeting
was a Central Coast Section second-round
tournament match.
With the wind howling for most of the
afternoon and emotions running high near
the end, the sixth-seeded Padres came away
with a 5-2 victory at San Mateo High
“It was a very close match and, under these
conditions, it was tough for both teams,”
said Serra coach Marcus Charles. “[Playing
S.I.] is like playing a mirror. ”
Serra (14-5) will now travel to face No. 3
Menlo-Atherton at 3 p.m. Monday. The
Bears routed Homestead 6-1.
Neither team was at full strength during
the regular season, but both were fully
loaded Friday and in the end, Serra had just a
little bit more.

the Padres took two of three. The No. 1 dou-
bles duo of Eric Dennis and Andrew Olson

SANTA CLARA — Carlos Hyde has long
admired Frank Gore, and now he wants to
compete against the veteran running back for
San Francisco’s starting job.
The 49ers boosted their running game
depth by selecting the Ohio State star with
the 57th pick of the NFL draft in the second
round after trading down.
The Niners acquired Miami’s choice that
came via San Diego after sending the 56th
pick to Denver only minutes earlier. San
Francisco added a potent runner to comple-
ment Frank Gore and Co. on Day 2 of the draft
Friday to join Thursday’s first-round pick
Jimmie Ward.
“I’m going to definitely get in there and
compete to get that starting job and keep that
running game alive that Frank Gore brought
to the Niners,” said Hyde, who ran for 1,521
yards for the Buckeyes in 2013. “That’s a guy
I watch in the NFL that plays really well.
...They felt like my skill set can really help
them out, what I do, what I bring to the game,
I think personally they feel that can really
help them get to that next level, get that tro-
The 30-year-old Gore is entering the final
year of his contract. He is coming off his sev-
enth 1,000-yard season and third straight in
his nine-year career.
In 20 career starts for Ohio State and 41
games that also included playing fullback,
Hyde generated 3,516 all-purpose yards,
rushing for 3,198 yards on 523 carries.
San Francisco traded the 61st pick of the
second round to Jacksonville, then selected
USC center Marcus Martin at No. 70 and
Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland at 77th.
Martin was the final player in the green room
at draft headquarters in New York.
“It makes you more hungry,” Martin said.
“I’m coming in with a chip on my shoulder.”
Earlier Friday, the 49ers addressed a big
need on the offensive side by acquiring wide
receiver Stevie Johnson from the Buffalo
Bills for an undisclosed 2015 draft pick. It
was high priority for general manager Trent
Baalke to find a reliable receiver.
Johnson is expected to fill a key spot as
San Francisco’s likely No. 3 receiver behind
Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.
While Boldin received a new $12 million,
two-year deal in March, Crabtree is entering
the final season of his contract and San
Francisco lost Mario Manningham in free
Johnson spent the past four seasons as a
starter in Buffalo. He became the Bills’ first
player to break 1,000 yards receiving in con-
secutive seasons in 2010-11, and extended
the streak in 2012.
Crabtree was happy to hear about the addi-
tion of another play maker to the receiving
“It’s good,” Crabtree offered with a thumbs
up and smile as he departed the facility Friday
Ward, selected 30th overall Thursday night,
arrived at team headquarters and made the
rounds. He met some players, including quar-
terback Colin Kaepernick.
“He said, ‘Good luck, man, enjoy the
weather,”’ Ward said.
Coach Jim Harbaugh has praised the tack-
ling ability of Ward, who said he learned from
his father and regularly hit two older broth-
“I was just taught to not be that guy that
missed a tackle and slapped his hands, hit the
ground,” Ward said. “That’s the sign of a
loser, so I don’t like that.”
He flew in from Alabama ready to get to
work, with only one bag that included the suit
he wore for his introductory press conference
and other appearances. Ward posed with his
new No. 25 jersey — departed cornerback
Tarell Brown’s old number — with Levi’s
Stadium in the background.
“I didn’t even pack. That’s another crazy
thing,” Ward said. “I packed a bag and a suit. I
have T-shirts, sweats, hopefully Coach said
everything I need is in here, so I’m going to
be wearing San Francisco sweats everywhere
and take pride in it. Red’s my favorite color.
I’ve got my hat and I might not take it off for
a good week. If you see me with this hat on
next week, that just shows you how passion-
ate I am for this program.”
Martin said he expects Daniel Kilgore to
shift into the center role, but that remains to
be seen.

A’s power past Nationals 8-0
OAKLAND — Tommy Milone
tossed eight innings of two-hit
ball for his first win of the season,
and three teammates homered to
power the A’s past Washington 8-0
on Friday night.
Brandon Moss went deep and fin-
ished with three RBIs, and Yoenis
Cespedes and John Jaso each hit a
solo shot to back Milone’s gem.
The left-hander struck out seven
and walked three.
Milone (1-3) left after 108 pitch-
es, and Fernando Rodriguez tossed a
scoreless ninth in his first appear-
ance in the majors since October
2012 after rehabbing from elbow
ligament replacement surgery.
Moss and Cespedes connected on
consecutive pitches in the fifth as
the AL West-leading A’s foiled
Doug Fister’s season debut. Fister
(0-1) allowed nine hits and seven
runs in 4 1-3 innings. He struck out
two and walked none.
The A’s placed reliever Ryan Cook
on the 15-day disabled with a
strained right forearm. Cook and
manager Bob Melvin said they don’t
believe the injury is serious.
Sports briefs
on two hits and three walks.
Terra Nova manager Joey Gentile’s
solution was simple this time around
— ride Gordon the entire way.
“We knew he was getting back and
getting eager to pitch,” Gentile said.
“The easiest part of the decision was
just [Falk] not throwing strikes. My
No. 1 from last year, and a kid who I
believe in and I love, but he just was-
n’t getting it done.”
Gordon showed up Friday under the
lights of Washington Park. He
breezed through the Burlingame bat-
ting order the first time around. The
junior right-hander faced just one
over the minimum through the first
three innings, his only blemish an
infield single off the bat of Nick
Franco on a soft liner back to the
mound that glanced off his glove.
After the Panthers scratched out a
pair of runs in the fourth, Gordon set-
tled in to retire 12 of the last 13 batters
he faced. All told, the right-hander
allowed three runs — the first three runs
he’s surrendered through 15 innings
this season — on three hits while
striking out four against no walks.
“Any time you watch Gordon
throw a football or a baseball, it’s
usually on target no matter where it’s
going,” Gentile said. “It was really
just his health, if his arm was going
to withstand his throwing a real
game situation.”
Terra Nova’s offense gave its jun-
ior stud a lead before he even took
the mound. Striking quickly in the
first inning, Youngsdale led off the
game with a walk. Gordon singled
to move Youngsdale to third. Then
an errant pickoff throw to first
allowed Youngsdale to score. After
Gordon stole second, Jacob
Martinez shot a ground-rule double
to right-center to score Gordon,
giving the Tigers a 2-0 lead.
In the second, Terra Nova added two
more. Steven Sagasty and Ryan Aguas
singled back-to-back to lead off the
frame. Jeff Hendricks bunted them
into scoring position for Youngsdale,
who lined a double down the third-
base line to score Sagasty and Aguas,
giving the Tigers a 4-0 lead.
In the fourth, the Panthers cut the
lead in half. Andrew Kennedy got
things started with a leadoff infield
single. Ryan Kammuller followed
with a bolt down the left-field line for
a double, moving Kennedy to third.
Gordon balked home Kennedy. Then
Kammuller scored on an RBI ground-
out by Franco to close the Tigers’
lead to 4-2.
But Terra Nova answered right back
in the fifth. After and infield hit by
Youngsdale, he eventually moved
around to third. Then Falk, hitting
out of the cleanup spot, locked up
with Burlingame starting pitcher
Andrew Maltz for a 10-pitch at-bat.
The outcome was a sacrifice fly to left
to plate Youngsdale, giving Terra
Nova a 5-2 lead.
Burlingame produced one run in
the bottom of the seventh. Jonathan
Engelmann led off the inning with a
double to right. The big junior stole
third then plated on an RBI ground-
out by Franco. But Gordon buckled
down, notching back-to-back strike-
outs to close it out for his first ever
varsity complete game.
“I was praying to get that last guy
out so we didn’t have to go any far-
ther with him,” Gentile said.
“Hopefully he’s back for this last run
coming up.”
For the Panthers (4-7, 7-16), the
loss seals their fate of finishing in last
place in the Bay Division. Currently a
half game back of Menlo, Burlingame
can move into a last-place tie with a
win over Half Moon Bay in the rain-
makeup season finale Saturday.
“[Our season] started in the dumps.
Everyone knows that,” Maltz said.
“We picked it up recently. We’ve won
three straight in league. We were
hoping to pick up this fourth
straight. It’s a tough one. We’ve just
got to come out tomorrow ready to
play Half Moon Bay and hopefully
secure a spot for [Central Coast
Section playoffs].”
For Terra Nova, the CCS playoff
picture looks promising. However,
because the Tigers lost in both head-
to-head matchups with co-champion
Carlmont, the Scots earn the Bay
Division’s berth into the Open
Division bracket.
“We’re going to represent the PAL
in the Open Division … which I
embrace,” Carlmont manager Rich
Vallero said. “I want to tee it up with
the big boys. I think our program
thrives off that.”
With Gordon’s return, Terra Nova
has quickly stacked one heck of a
pitching staff. Sophomore left-han-
der Jared Milch, the team’s workhorse
having logged nearly 50 innings this
season, will be in the rotation mix
along with Gordon. And right-hander
Sagasty has settled in as a dynamic
relief option in the late innings, hav-
ing tabbed a 1.60 ERA with three
saves this year.

ALAMEDA— The Oakland Raiders drafted
their possible quarterback of the future less
than two months after acquiring a new
The Raiders drafted Fresno State quarter-
back Derek Carr with the 36th overall pick
in the NFL draft on Friday night to compete
with presumptive starter Matt Schaub.
“They want me to come in, work hard,
compete,” Carr said. “Whenever I’m the
quarterback, great. To me, it doesn’t matter
what the situation is — if I’m a starter, if I’m
a backup, there to learn. My No. 1 goal is to
help the Raiders win, and I’m going to do
Oakland traded a sixth-round pick to
Houston in March to acquire Schaub and
immediately named him the starter. In an
interesting twist, Schaub replaced Carr’s
older brother, David, as starter in Houston.
David Carr was the first draft pick ever for the
Texans in 2002 and started five seasons there
before being let go.
“I learned everything that he did right and
everything that he did wrong,” Carr said.
“He told me that if he could do anything, he
hopes he made the path smoother for me as I
transition into the NFL.”
Derek Carr was one of the most productive
quarterbacks in college football last season.
He threw for 5,083 yards and 50 touchdowns
with only eight interceptions in a spread
offense at Fresno State that included many
quick screens and almost exclusively shot-
gun formations. He also won the 2013
Sammy Baugh Award, which goes to the
nation’s top passer.
Carr is one of just 19 quarterbacks in FBS
history to throw for more than 10,000 career
yards and 100 touchdowns. His ratio of 113
touchdown passes to 24 interceptions is the
second highest in FBS history for all quar-
terbacks with at least 100 career touchdown
Carr played in a pro-style offense under
former coach Pat Hill in 2011 and was con-
sidered to have one of the strongest arms in
the draft and was a possible first-round pick.
Carr lasted until early in the second round
and the Raiders pounced when he was still
there despite having already added Schaub.
“You just sit there and wait for your phone
to ring,” Carr said. “It’s weird. You sit there,
you hope it rings with every pick that goes
by. But I got to be honest, the way it worked
out, the place I’m going and the coaches and
players I’ll be around, I couldn’t be happier. ”

LOS ANGELES — Madison Bumgarner
pitched eight superb innings and Brandon
Crawford hit a two-run homer, leading the
San Francisco Giants past the Los Angeles
Dodgers 3-1 Friday night.
The Giants’ 12th victory in 15 games was
overshadowed by the broken left thumb
Brandon Belt sustained when he was hit by
Paul Maholm’s first pitch of the second
inning. The first baseman, who leads the
club with nine homers, ran the bases until
the inning was over but was replaced on
defense by Joaquin Arias.
The Giants were leading 3-0 when Yasiel
Puig homered to center with one out in the
sixth, after taking a called third strike his
previous time up and leaving Justin Turner
stranded at third base. As soon as Puig made
contact, he flipped the bat away, walked a
few feet toward first base and began a slow
trot around the bases.
Bumgarner walked toward the third base
line and had a few choice words for Puig as
he approached home plate. But the hostili-
ties ended there with some quick action by
plate umpire Will Little, who intercepted
Hanley Ramirez was the next batter and
took a 1-1 pitch for a strike that had manag-
er Don Mattingly chirping from the dugout.
Little ejected Mattingly, who came running
out to argue.
Bumgarner (4-3) allowed a run and four
hits with eight strikeouts en route to his
second straight victory after three consecu-
tive losses — two of them by 2-1 scores
against the Dodgers and Colorado. He is 5-1
with a 1.45 ERA in his last six starts at
Dodger Stadium, and hasn’t allowed more
than two earned runs in any of them.
Sergio Romo pitched a perfect ninth for
his 12th save in as many attempts.
Maholm (1-3) gave up three runs, three
hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings. The
left-hander is 0-4 with a 6.66 ERA in his
last five starts against the Giants.
Maholm got out of a first-inning jam by
retiring cleanup hitter Mike Morse on a dou-
ble-play grounder and matched zeros with
Bumgarner until the fifth. Brandon Hicks
walked with one out and Crawford drove the
next pitch into the right-field pavilion for
his fourth homer of the season and first in
117 career at-bats against the Dodgers to
that point.
Arias extended the Giants’ lead to 3-0 in
the sixth with a two-out RBI single. Turner
charged the slowly hit ball and barehanded
it before throwing it past first base for an
error. Maholm intentionally walked slump-
ing Pablo Sandoval before giving way to
Brandon League, who retired Hicks on a
One inning later, League escaped a bases-
loaded, none-out jam when he fielded Hunter
Pence’s comebacker to start a 1-2-3 double
play and then retired Buster Posey on a fly to
NOTES: Mattingly’s ejection was his
13th as a manager and first this season.
Puig extended his hitting streak to nine
games, matching his longest as a rookie
last season. It was the 12th time in the
Dodgers’ last 15 meetings with San
Francisco that they have scored fewer than
four runs.
Romo’s scoreless inning reduced the ERAof
the Giants’bullpen to a major league-best 1.75.

point counted. Barrows said it was no big
“The wind caused balls to blow all over
(the courts),” Barrows said. “[The argument]
was kind of blown out of proportion. We
came to a fair decision.”
The two players held serve through the
first four games before Barrows got a break
in the fifth game to take a 3-2 lead. With
Barrows later leading 4-3, he broke Pera
again before serving out the match.
Barrows admitted the wind got to him a
couple times, but he had to push through.
“The mental game becomes more impor-
tant (in windy conditions),” Barrows said.
“You have to move your feet. I got frustrated
at times.”
St. Ignatius, which was unseeded and
posted a 6-1 win over Los Gatos in the
opening round of the tournament, picked up
the first point of the match as Matt Cueto
and Noah Schumacher took a 7-5, 6-4 deci-
sion over Ali Jafri and Matthew McNamara
at No. 2 doubles, but Serra evened the team
score when Peter Campana won his No. 2
singles match in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3.
Campana also admitted the wind became
an issue at times.
“It affected [my match] a lot. The wind is a
big factor, especially when the pressure is
high,” Campana said.
Despite that, Campana said he didn’t real-
ly change his game much.
“I pretty much go about playing my guy. I
know I can’t get frustrated. I just try to play
my game and try to not think about [the
Dennis and Olson gave Serra its second
team point and the Padres increased their
lead to 3-1 after Gordon Barrows needed
three sets to get past S.I.’s Derek Austin at
No. 3 singles, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2.
Jayson Fung kept the Wildcats in the
match by beating Matt Campana at No. 1
singles, 6-4, 6-3, but Serra won the final
two matches of the day at No. 4 singles and
No. 3 doubles.
Despite the rivalry between the two
schools, Peter Campana said it didn’t really
factor into the Padres’ play Friday. At this
point of the season, all the teams in the
CCS tournament belong.
“I don’t think it really matters (playing a
rival),” Peter Campana said. “S.I. is a good
team. All the teams in CCS are good.”
Bellarmine 7, Aragon 0
After beating Stevenson 7-0 in the tour-
nament opener Wednesday, the Dons got a
taste of their own medicine as they were
routed by the fourth-seeded Bells Friday at
Bay Club in Santa Clara.
Bellarmine (19-3) swept all the matches
in straight sets. Aragon’s No. 1 and No. 2
doubles teams — Landers Ngrichemat and
Alex Ilyin, and Tony Wang and Sameer Jain,
respectively — had the best performances
for the Dons. Ngrichemat and Ilyin lost
their match 6-4, 6-2, while the scores were
reversed for Wang and Jain.
Aragon ends its season with a 14-7
In other CCS action, top-seeded Menlo
School cruised into the quarterfinals with a
7-0 win over St. Francis.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Kevin Harvick has a second
straight shot at winning from the pole at Kansas Speedway.
Harvick was back on top at the 1.5-mile track, posting a
track record to help propel him to his second pole of the
season. Harvick posted his record 194.658 mph lap Friday
in the second round of NASCAR’s knockout qualifying for-
mat. His No. 4 Chevrolet hit 194.252 in the third round to
give him two straight poles at Kansas, after he won from the
top spot at October’s race.
“It was ‘Freaky Fast’ today, so just have to put it all
together tomorrow night when it counts,” Harvick said.
Harvick has two wins this season and won from the pole
at Darlington. He will lead the field to green Saturday under
the lights for the first time in a Sprint Cup race at Kansas.
Joey Logano joined Harvick on the front row.
Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards and Kyle Larson rounded
out the top five.
His qualifying spins over, Keselowski worked hard
defending himself from drivers — like former champion
Jimmie Johnson — who said he didn’t need to race so hard
when he was out of contention Sunday at Talladega
Keselowski fell six laps off the pace while his car was
repaired from an earlier accident. When he returned to the
track, he decided to race hard with the leaders in an attempt
to slowly get his laps back and maybe put himself back in
position to win.
Keselowski eventually spun in the middle of the pack to
trigger a 14-car accident that wrecked former champions Jeff
Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and Johnson.
“You have to think being six laps down you are not going
to get back on the lead lap,” Johnson said Friday. “There is
an opinion, if you are on the race track you deserve a right
to go race regardless how many laps down you are. I’m sure
that is probably a smaller percentage of people have that
opinion. It’s very easy when you are caught up in that wreck
is to go, ‘Why were you racing? You are six laps down.’ It
just depends on where you are.”

It wasn’t until last week, while driving along Hazel
Avenue with my Grandma on our way to Sunday night
family dinner that I realized the extent of my San Bruno
roots. Coming from a family that lives and works
and socializes in this city, it caught me by surprise to
realize my grandmother has spent her entire life in the
same city with the same families in this tight-knit,
bedroom community. “That’s the house I grew up in,”
she mentioned as we passed 568 Hazel Avenue. “That
window, right over there,” she said as she pointed, “was
where my boyfriend would come knock after everyone
went to sleep.” I chuckled to myself thinking of the
many memories our family history has in this town and
how many more we still have to create. As we celebrate
the 100th Birthday of San Bruno, I wanted to sit down
with my Grandma and ask her what San Bruno means to
her now, what it meant then, and what she hopes for the
future of this town. Today being Mother’s Day seems the
appropriate time to share this interview with readers.
Joey: What was it like growing up in San Bruno? Raising a
family here? Running a business here?
Paula: Well, It was windy then, a little foggy but always
warm. We all knew each other. We walked everywhere, to
school, downtown, to the park and the furthest house was
Shirley Otis’ home – the only one on Cedar. The horse is
now gone, but the house is still there! Raising a family
and running a business were all part of growing up and
living here. We raised our kids together and we ran our
businesses together and supported each other.
Joey: What do you hope for San Bruno to maintain as it looks
towards the next 100 years?
Paula: I hope that San Bruno can maintain its community
support for the next 100 years and beyond. We have an
incredible spirit of community here and the people are
really just the best. When my husband was Mayor he said
he loved San Bruno and its people. He meant it. I hope
San Bruno can maintain its community heart and seeing
its people that are a part of this community today, I know
that it’s in good hands.
Joey: What’s your favorite part about being a San Bruno
Lifetime Resident?
Paula: As I said before, it’s the people. I’m proud of this
place, these people. I love the snack bar, the park, Bayhill,
the Posy Parade. I love going to the grocery store and
them knowing my name. I love the excitement that new
families have when their first home is purchased here and
I love watching families multiply and grow in this town. I
know generations in this town and this town’s residents
always make me proud.

In the first inning, Raquel Martinez started
a rally with a leadoff bunt single. After
Martinez stole second, Kayleen Smith fol-
lowed with a sacrifice bunt attempt that went
for an infield single, moving Martinez to
third. Smith was gunned down attempting to
steal second, but Talisa Fiame got her team
on the board with a sacrifice fly to center to
stake CSM to a 1-0 lead.
In the third, CSM extended its lead with a
pair of unearned runs. With two outs,
Martinez reached on an infield single as her
chopper winged off the third-base bag. Smith
followed with a single to center that turned
into quite an adventure for the Ohlone
defense. First, center fielder Haley
McDaniel’s throw into the infield skipped
past the cutoff man allowing Martinez to
score. When second baseman Alyssa Raguini
gathered the errant throw behind first base,
she tried to gun down Smith at third base, but
the throw got away from Ohlone third base-
man Gabriela Reyes, allowing Smith to
round the bags for the score, giving CSM a 3-
0 lead.
In the fifth, the CSM power showed up.
With one out, Martinez drilled a 2-2 offering
into the center-field jet stream for a solo
home run. Smith reached on an error when the
Ohlone outfield dropped a high fly ball to
left-center. After a sacrifice bunt by Fiame
moved Smith to second, Skania Lemus shot
an RBI single to center to give CSM a 5-0
The decision to bunt Fiame was an interest-
ing one. CSM’s No. 3 hitter had three home
runs in two games in last weekend’s regional
sweep against Yuba. Borg’s strategy paid off
when Lemus delivered the RBI knock out of
the cleanup spot.
“I just had a good feeling about Skania
coming up and getting a base hit. I knew we
needed at least one more run to go into the
next inning with some good insurance,”
Borg said.
In the sixth, Brooke Ramsey sparked the
CSM rally that put the game away with a
leadoff single to center. Wilkerson followed
with a sacrifice bunt and reached on a throw-
ing error as Ramsey came around to score.
Akai followed with a single to right before
Cruse ended things on the walk-off three-run
“I kind of struggled in my first two at-
bats,” Cruse said. “I was making big swings
before and I went in there just thinking,
‘Let’s hit the ball solid. I’ve got two base
runners. Let’s move them and see what I can
do.’And the ball was middle in and that’s my
favorite pitch and just went for it. It felt
With the win, Smith — CSM’s freshman
shortstop — celebrated her 19th birthday in
style. And she gave all the props for the CSM
infield’s outstanding performance to her pitcher.
“Our pitcher Neil, she usually pitches it right
where she wants it,” Smith said. “So, she usual-
ly puts it where she wants them too hit it, and we
just have to play behind her and make the

Taylor Cruse jumps on home plate after smashing a walk-off homer Friday in the Bulldogs’
9-0 win over Sacramento in the opening game of the Nor Cal Super Regional tournament.
Despite Tam’s ability, Julia Hansen
remains the team’s anchor. The junior is part
of both the 200 medley relay and 200 free
relay teams, and is also the team’s best but-
terflier and one of the best freestylers.
“She’s been our leader the last three
years,” Farley said.
While both those relays teams have
already qualified for CCS, Hansen is still
looking for a qualifying time in the 100 fly.
She swam a 1:03.79 in the Bearcats’ win
over Hillsdale last week, but needs a time of
1:02.99 to qualify for CCS.
“She’s like a fingernail away,” Farley said.
“It unusual she hasn’t gotten [a CCS qualify-
ing time] this year. ”
While the Bearcats are still hoping to get
a few more swimmers qualified for individual
CCS races, the 200 medley and 200 free
relay teams have already punched their tick-
et to the Santa Clara International Swim
Center — home of the CCS championships.
Hansen leads out with the 50 backstroke
in the 200 medley relay, followed by Tam
(breast), Low (fly) and another freshman,
Natalie Ken, anchoring the race in the
In the 200 free, Tam and Ken swim the first

Priscilla Law. Hansen then swims the anchor

ing times last week against Hillsdale.

onships are concerned, Farley believes his
team’s prowess in the three relay races will
help them pick up valuable points in the
“[The relay results] should be huge for our
team results this weekend. Winning relays is
huge for us this year,” Farley said. “We
haven’t lost a 200 medley relay. ”
Despite the expectations, Farley does not
expect to simply swim away with the title.

BEREA, Ohio — A day of celebration dis-
solved into confusion for the Browns.
Hours after quarterback Johnny Manziel’s
arrival had Cleveland’s football pulse racing
faster than it had in years, a report that star wide
receiver Josh Gordon may be facing an indefi-
nite suspension shattered the city’s collective
As the second round of the NFL draft was set
to open Friday, ESPN reported that Gordon,
who led the NFLin yards receiving last season,
had failed another drug test for marijuana and
could be banned for a year. The ESPN report,
based on anonymous sources, described letters
the Pro Bowler received about the failed test.
The Browns deferred any comment on
Gordon’s situation to the league office.
Gordon’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined
Gordon was suspended without pay for the
first two games last season for violating the
league’s substance abuse policy for the second
time, but still led the league with 1,646 yards
receiving in 14 games. He had 87 catches and
nine touchdowns.
Gordon, who was taken in the 2012 supple-
mental draft, entered the league with a history of
substance issues. He was excused from Baylor’s
team for twice failing drug tests and he also
failed a test after transferring to Utah.
The Browns have been pleased with the easy-
going Gordon’s maturity and his off-the-field
progress. The team had the 23-year-old
involved in many of their offseason activities
this winter, including him in meetings with free
agents and keeping him apprised of their plans.
At last week’s voluntary mini-camp, first-
year Browns coach Mike Pettine praised
Gordon for his game-breaking abilities and his
willingness to accept his role with the team.
Gordon spoke to a small group of reporters
away from the TV cameras and said he was
pleased to be so entwined in the team’s offsea-
son regimen.

Rogen and Efron
wage comic war
By Jake Coyle
The Coppola family has given us Francis
Ford Coppola, Nicolas Cage, Sofia
Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, Talia Shire
and some very good wine.
Gia Coppola, 27, the granddaughter of
Francis and niece of Sofia, is the latest
Coppola to enter the family business. “Palo
Alto” is her debut, an adaptation of James
Franco’s book of short stories about disaf-
fected California youth.
From “The Outsiders” to “The Virgi n
Suicides,” teenage wastelands have been a
Coppola specialty, whereas Schwartzman
presented a more idiosyncratic portrait of
teen angst in the great “Rushmore.”
In “Palo Alto,” Gia very much takes after
the soft aesthetic of Sofia (“The Bling
Ring,” “Somewhere”) in presenting a clus-
ter of direction-less California teenagers
backed by a mellow, synthesizer-heavy
score. “Palo Alto” is rife with the stylistic
clichis established by Gia’s aunt and direc-
tors like Gus Van Sant.
But for a first film, “Palo Alto” shows
promise in its character-first storytelling
and its young filmmaker’s evident ease with
actors. Coppola doesn’t force anything on
her characters, instead capturing the
unthinking momentariness of youth.
The film follows four high-schoolers
largely outside of school walls. The set-
tings of “Palo Alto” (which oddly contains
nothing to contextualize it as the wealthy
tech capital of its title) are house parties,
bedrooms and soccer fields.
Another Coppola debuts with ‘Palo Alto’
Favreau: How
to make good
foodie movie
By Jacqueline Tang
here is a lethal disease
spreading in the hallways
of high schools nation-
wide. It seems this ailment wors-
ens as the days to graduation near.
Symptoms of
this sickness
decreased moti-
vation in
school, rapidly
grades, spotty
records and
empty backpacks. Nearly every
high school student, parent and
educator is familiar with seniori-
tis. They have either been afflicted
by it, or have seen it firsthand.
I remember hearing the term
senioritis back in freshman year
in my algebra II class of mixed
grades. My teacher would often
proclaim “Senioritis, BAD!” at
the seniors in our class. Back
then, senioritis didn’t mean much
to me — it was just the seniors
goofing off in the back of my
math class. Now, however, I’ve
gotten to know senioritis fairly
I think many teachers and par-
ents simply write off senioritis as
seniors getting lazy. While that
may be one of the components of
senioritis, it is the not the only
one. Seniors don’t just get lazy;
we’re burnt out. We’ve been doing
this charade for 12 years, and it’s
the same routine: wake up, attend
school from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
engage in extracurricular activi-
ties, do homework and sleep.
High school, in particular, takes a
large toll on students. For four
years, we have been diligent
slaves to our schoolwork while

‘Chef’ stirs appetite
By Jessica Herndon
From the mouth-watering carne asada to the molten
chocolate cake, Jon Favreau’s “Chef” is a delec-
table take on an out-of-work cook who experi-
ences career rejuvenation when traveling cross-
country serving Cuban entrees on a food truck.
Marking Favreau’s return to indie filmmak-
ing — he emerged in 1996 with heartbreak
cult-classic “Swingers” — “Chef” is a refresh-
ing passion project affording the writer-director
the chance to scale down and get personal after
directing the first two “Iron Man” blockbusters
and 2011’s “Cowboys & Aliens.”
When master chef Carl Casper (Favreau) is
fired by the owner of a popular Los Angeles
restaurant (Dustin Hoffman) for requesting
to stir up the fixed menu for a disapprov-
ing food critic (Oliver Platt), he finds
himself at a crossroads. After a
video capturing Carl lashing out
at the critic goes viral, it
becomes nearly impossible for
the 40-something to get a new

By Jocelyn Noveck
NEWYORK — The way Jon Favreau
sees it, the world is divided into people
who are interested in food, and people
who aren’t .
“And I,” he declares, “am a member of
the former category. ”
That will be obvious to anyone who
watches this weekend’s new film “Chef,”
which Favreau wrote, stars in, and directed, and which
displays food in a luxurious, almost religious way.
Critics have, perhaps justifiably, noted a lack of com-
plexity in both plot and characters, and an overly sunny
denouement. But one can’t deny the film’s appeal to the
taste buds.
Even a simple grilled cheese sandwich, meticulously
prepared by a father for his young son, is almost too deli-

sleep. Doing what we know how to do so well (high
school homework and tests) for another few months seems
a little bit tedious. If the purpose of high school is to pre-
pare students for college, doesn’t a college acceptance
mean we’re ready, or at least a lot closer to being ready, for
college? I’m not saying that school should cease for sen-
iors once they get into college or that learning should be
put on hold, but second semester senior year should defi-
nitely differ from other semesters of high school. Instead
of challenging us with the same types of tests and home-
work assignments, we should be challenged by new
things. Some schools have seniors complete a large senior
project of their choice during this semester, maybe this
should be implemented more.
Seniors are just not worrying about the same things any-
more. At least for me, I’m a lot more concerned about my
future major than my current physics grade. The ending of
this chapter of high school brings inevitable change.
What we choose to do in our next four years of our lives at
college will truly begin setting the path for the rest of our
lives. During this last semester of high school, I’ve spent
a lot of time thinking about what might happen in the
future. The future is a promising and scary thing. As we
approach high school graduation, we are, in a way, enter-
ing the real world. Once we step out of those high school
halls, we will truly be accountable for ourselves. In a few
short months, we’ll be moving out of our homes and mov-
ing into new cities and states across the country.
Second semester senior year is a special time, and we
should treat it as such. During this time, seniors struggle
with critical decisions like where to spend the next four
years of their lives and what to study. Being loaded with
responsibilities like that are pretty strange and foreign to
us; I mean, we still have to ask for permission to use the
restroom. So, parents and teachers, next time you come in
contact with a student that might have a bout of senioritis,
please don’t simply write him or her off as being lazy. We
seniors are just really excited, and very anxious, for the
coming months. Ask us how we’re doing, and try to
remember how it felt to be a second semester senior. Alit-
tle bit of empathy never hurt anyone.
Jacqueline Tang is a senior at Aragon High School in San Mateo.

Emma Roberts stars as April, a gawky but pretty young
girl. Though she’s a type — a virgin, the “good girl” —
she doesn’t come off that way. Roberts, who has often
played bigger, more theatrical characters, has never been
better. As April, she shows a shy vulnerability, and the
gentle timidity of the performance echoes through the
She’s drawn to the blond-haired, mop-headed stoner
Teddy (Jack Kilmer, whose father, Val, makes a cameo as
April’s father), but begins an illicit affair with her inap-
propriately older soccer coach (Franco), a lecherous single
father. Teddy pals around with his buddy, Fred (Nat Wolff),
a joker and agitator — the kind of kid who tries terribly
hard to be erratic and unpredictable. He’s fooling around
with the promiscuous Emily (Zoe Levin).
They’re all acting out in desperate ways, experimenting
with their identity and rudderless without parental guid-
ance. Teddy wrecks a car and flees, only to be easily caught
and sentenced (by an off-screen judge played by Francis
Ford Coppola) to community service. In the opening
scene, Fred rams his car into a wall for a laugh. Lacking
confidence, Emily develops a reputation for oral sex.
The kids of “Palo Alto” use each other, and the girls are
usually the worse for it. But the film has more tenderness
and delicacy than Franco’s deadpan, violent stories. It
doesn’t sensationalize their partying or their sex lives,
but sensitively depicts their lonely grasping in an empty
world where adults either neglect, discipline or seduce
Franco has said he only wanted a female filmmaker to
direct “Palo Alto,” and it benefits from Coppola’s femi-
nine perspective. When April offers to play a combat
video game while babysitting the son of Franco’s coach,
the boy questions her avatar choice: “The girl character?
She sucks.”
“Palo Alto” doesn’t chart any new ground, but its deriva-
tiveness isn’t as grating as it should be. That’s due to both
Coppola’s obvious empathy for her characters and the
sweet authenticity of both Roberts (the daughter of Eric
Roberts and niece of Julia) and the newcomer Kilmer.
Nepotism, it turns out, isn’t all bad.
“Palo Alto,” a Tribeca Film release, is rated R by the
Motion Picture Association of America for “strong sexual
content, drug and alcohol use, and pervasive language, all
involving teens.” Running time: 98 minutes. Two and a
half stars out of four.

If ever two genres of film were inex-
tricably intertwined, it would seem to
be the frat house movie and the gross-
out comedy. After all, do frats ever do
anything that’s NOT gross? Not in the
movies, they don’t .
“Neighbors,” starring (and produced
by) Seth Rogen and directed by
Nicholas Stoller, proudly straddles
these two genres and boldly tosses in a
third: The “We’ve-just-become-parents,
NOW-what?” movie. You know these:
Baby arrives, cute as a button but bring-
ing ALL kinds of trouble, and then
things are resolved in a syrupy sweet
It’s safe to say that syrupy sweetness
is not a problem with “Neighbors.” In
fact, it is noisy, crude, profane, gross
and sometimes mean. Luckily, it’s also
extremely funny, and you’ll realize by
the end that it has some heart, too.
Most importantly, what it may suffer
in narrative coherence it makes up for
with a first-rate cast — the reliably
funny Rogen, the game-for-anything
Rose Byrne, and in the most pleasant
surprise, a truly excellent Zac Efron as
an immature, narcissistic, vindictive
and, by the way, unbelievably buff frat
leader whose obnoxious brio might just
be masking deeper issues. (Zac, as a
parent who had to watch the “High
School Musical” films at least 400
times, maybe more, let me just say: I
forgive you now.)
Rogen plays Mac Radner, a young
father who clearly hasn’t smoothly
completed his transition to adulthood.
He still dreams of the epic partying he
once engaged in. And so does his wife,
Kelly (Byrne, beautiful as always, and
energetically foul-mouthed here.) When
a friend suggests an evening at a rave,
Kelly and Mac want to go so badly, they
decide to bring baby. But they spend so
much energy gathering up the stroller,
the car seat, the breast pump and the
cooler, that they collapse in a heap by
the front door. Parenthood ain’t easy.
Still, the couple’s doing pretty well
in their new suburban digs. Until Delta
Psi moves in. Right next door.
At first, Mac and Kelly try to make
nice with the frat’s leader, Teddy
(Efron), who’s such a fine physical
specimen that Mac calls him “some-
thing a gay guy designed in a lab.”
Debating the least geeky way to say
“could ya keep it down?” they head next
door, and end up partying all night, just
to show how cool they are. But soon,
the noise is too much, and they’re call-
ing the cops. The war is on.
The script by Andrew J. Cohen and
Brendan O’Brien misses no opportuni-
ty to mine frat-film clichis. Beer pong?
Check. Stunts involving dildos?
Check. But it’s quite well done, thanks
to the nimble comic instincts of

NEWYORK — As the final season of
“Mad Men” winds down, John Slattery
has traded 1960s Madison Avenue for
late 1970s Philadelphia.
In “God’s Pocket,” the actor best
known for his performance as the wry,
apathetic Roger Sterling on the AMC
drama makes his directorial debut.
The film, which opens Friday and
first premiered at the Sundance Film
Festival, is an adaptation of Pete
Dexter’s novel about the overlapping
lives of the working-class people of
Philadelphia’s God’s Pocket neighbor-
hood. Slattery directed and co-wrote the
The film also marks one of the two
final screen performances of the late
Philip Seymour Hoffman. (The other,
Anton Corbijn’s John le Carre adapta-
tion, “AMost Wanted Man,” is due out
July 25.) In “God’s Pocket,” Hoffman
stars as Mickey, a blue-collar schlub
half-heatedly investigating his step-
son’s death. John Turturro, Richard
Jenkins and “Mad Men” co-star
Christina Hendricks make up some of
the local characters.
In a recent interview, Slattery dis-
cussed his strong vision for Dexter’s
book and his abiding admiration of
AP: You and Hoff man l ong
orbited the same territory as New
York actors, and both were i n
2 0 0 7 ’s “Charlie Wi l s on’s War. ”
But you seemed to grow much
cl oser making “God’s Pocket. ”
Sl at t ery : It was a close working
rel at i onshi p. I t hi nk any good
working relationship between an
actor and a director, you become
intimate with each other. It wasn’t
because we were the best of friends
prior to that. We knew each other
and lived near each other.
AP: What did you learn about
him as an actor whi l e maki ng the
fil m?
Slattery: Through the course of the
shooting it, I realized that of course it
isn’t an accident that he’s as revered as
he is. He’s tireless in asking questions
but not complicated, highfalutin,
fancy questions. It was just, like:
‘Why? Why does this guy stay in this
community where he’s constantly
reminded that he’s not one of them?’
Those questions are the kind of ques-
tions he would ask. I realized that there
aren’t any real smoke and mirrors. It’s
someone that had that emotional depth
and intelligence that works that hard. It
was just being that close to it and see-
ing all those elements working at the
same time — the technical wherewithal
in the middle of a deep emotional
moment. It was pretty impressive, I
have to say.
AP: You’ve direct ed f i ve
episodes of “Mad Men.” Had the
urge to direct long been perc o-
l ati ng i n you?
Slattery : Kind of peripherally. I
was always of an opinion about what
was happening when I was standing
around on set, but it wasn’t my job. By
the time you get to most movies and
television and theater production,
they’re all set up — directors in place,
producers are in place. So you act a
finite amount of time and then you’re
gone. With “Mad Men,” it was appar-
ent early on the quality of the produc-
tion from top to bottom and that it was
going to be around for a little while. So
I saw it as an opportunity to watch for
months and follow directors around and
then officially throw my hat in.
AP: The lived-in naturalism of
“God’s Pocket, ” whi ch you shot
i n Yonkers just outside New York
Ci t y, is in stark contrast to the
polish of “Mad Men. ”
Sl attery : I thought that ‘God’s
Pocket’ was just a good story and if I
could stay out of my own way and
everybody else’s way, I could tell it.
That’s how the good the story was —
that even I could tell it. I’m not being
false-modest. You can get in your own
way a lot. I do it in acting. You try to do
too much or show too much.
AP: With the seventh and final sea-
son of “Mad Men” finishing up, do you
feel like you’re entering a new phase?
Slattery: Whether I like it or not, I’m
beginning a new phase. “Mad Men” is
finishing and by the time it finishes, it
will have been 10 years of my life. So
that is occurring and this movie is
coming out. There will be a change.
What comes next, I don’t know. But I
look forward to that. Part of what I like
about this business is not knowing
what’s coming next.
‘Mad Men’ end near, Slattery turns to directing

We’ve designed a special celebration
seafood delicacies, carvlng statlon,
made-to-order omelets, Chef-selected
entrées, tasty sides and festive desserts.
A welcome mlmosa for all guests to
commemorate the occasion!
for Mother's Day. Ln[oy a bunet wlth
year-old son, Percy (Emjay Anthony), with
whom Carl has been distant.
While “Swingers” was all about search-
ing for connections, “Chef” focuses on
maintaining them, with the relationship
between Carl and his son steadily growing
while he looks for his new career.
Once in Miami, he meets with Inez’s rich
ex-husband, Marvin, played by Robert
Downey Jr. in a hilariously shameless
standout performance. Marvin takes pity
on Carl and offers him a food truck.
Longtime pal and grill chef Martin (John
Leguizamo) joins Carl in Miami to help
cook meals from their childhood as they
embark on a cross-country trip — with
Percy in tow — back to LA.
Martin sets their trek right by fixing up
the truck. “My cousin knows a guy”
becomes his signature line, as he returns
with a gussied-up truck displaying colorful
“El Jefe Cubanos” signs. Leguizamo offers
lively comic relief in contrast to Favreau’s
dry humor.
With the Cuban sandwich as their signa-
ture dish, they stop in places like New
Orleans and Austin, Texas, adding their
own flair to local dishes. Foodies will
enjoy the spotlight on well-known haunts,
such as Franklin Barbeque in Austin. And
music lovers will appreciate the cameo by
blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr., who per-
forms at the BBQ joint.
(And for extra kicks, stay through the
credits for a glimpse of gourmet fast food
guru Roy Choi teaching Favreau the ropes
on the grill.)
Baffled when the line outside of their
food truck continues to grow at each stop,
Carl discovers Percy has taken to Twitter,
Vine and Facebook — social media tools
foreign to his dad — to broadcast their
whereabouts. It’s a key element of their
bonding, as Percy captures endearing
moments like Carl handing him his first
But the constant tweets, which are all
viewed on screen, start to feel like a pub-
licity stunt on overkill.
Luckily, the performances overshadow
the monotony. Anatural at striking a satis-
fying balance between anxious and collect-
ed, Favreau makes Carl’s arc believable as
he transitions from deflated professional
to culinary success. And in short-lived sup-
porting roles, Scarlett Johansson and
Bobby Cannavale are finely cast as restau-
rant staffers.
Back in LA among the food trucks that
populate trendy Abbot Kinney Boulevard
in Venice, “Chef” wraps up predictably,
though cutely, as Favreau aims to make us
believe we can successfully marry our pas-
sion with our profession.
“Chef,” an Open Roads Films release, is
rated R by the Motion Picture Association
of America for “language, including some
suggestive references.” Running time: 115
minutes. Three stars out of four.
MPAA definition of R: Restricted. Under

cious to look at, and evokes immediate
empathy for this divorced dad trying to
make a connection with his child in the
most elemental way: through his stomach.
And it makes ours growl.
Which is what Favreau was going for.
“There’s something hypnotic to me when
I watch food being prepared on a cooking
show, or in ‘Eat Drink Man Woman,”’ he
says, referring to the 1994 Ang Lee foodie
classic. “There’s something incredibly
compelling and cinematic about it. And it’s
amazing that it can actually make your
mouth water. ”
Not all food films make the mouth water.
Another entry this year, the recent “Tasting
Menu,” based at a fictional restaurant in
Spain, fell curiously short in that regard.
(Later this summer comes “The Hundred-
Foot Journey,” starring Helen Mirren.)
Of the many delectable contenders,
besides the Lee film, foodies still swoon
when they think of “Babette’s Feast,” “Big
Night,” or the animated “Ratatouille,”
which culminates in the glorious prepara-
tion of that simple vegetable dish in the
Likewise, “Chef” comes down to a simple
dish: the Cuban sandwich.
Carl Casper (Favreau) is a gifted but
volatile chef at a swank Los Angeles restau-
rant. His boss (Dustin Hoffman), orders him
to play it safe on the very night a major food
critic is coming. Reluctantly, he does, and
predictably gets excoriated by the critic.
Things go way downhill, and Casper is
fired. He rebuilds his life by going back to
basics: sprucing up a filthy old truck and
turning it into a temple for the perfect
Cuban sandwich.
There’s a popular view that Casper the
chef is really Favreau the director, and the
risk-averse restaurant owner a big studio
honcho — and “Chef,” an independent film,
the food truck. Favreau, who directed the
“Iron Man” films, says that’s only partly
true — he actually loves both genres.
Yet it’s clear “Chef” is a labor of love for
Favreau, who confesses that he was so
inspired during filming, he’s installing a
full commercial kitchen in his home,
including a wood-burning pizza oven, a flat-
top grill and maybe one day even an outdoor
smoker, for succulent brisket.
Still, making food work at home is differ-
ent than making it work onscreen. How do
you do THAT?
“I learned a lot about photography and
sound design,” he says. “It’s partly about
the music. Part of it is the lighting, and part
is the way you color-time it,” he says, refer-
ring to the process of adjusting the colors of
a shot. “A slight change in color can make
something look nauseating.”
Favreau had help. Noted LAchef Roy Choi
was the food consultant, on set every day.
“If you do a commercial, the food gets
sprayed with glycerin, and then gets thrown
away,” Favreau says. “But when you’re deal-
ing with a chef it’s about honoring the food.
And so everything we cooked, we served up
afterward. When we broke down a pig, we
parceled it up and sent it home with the
crew. ”
There was also serious training involved,
as John Leguizamo, who plays Casper’s
buddy and line cook, can attest. He spent a
month doing research at a Manhattan restau-
“It was hard, man,” Leguizamo says. “So
many sharp objects, hot burning items —
you make the wrong move, somebody’s
gonna get hurt.”
On the set, he says, there were similar
risks. “The chef would tell me, ‘Lean in,
your arms are dead.’ I said, ‘I don’t want to
burn myself!’ He said, ‘Take the risk.’ I said,
‘YOU take the risk!”’ (We’re leaving out the
But it was all for authenticity, Leguizamo
says. Both actor and director speak of
“Chef” as a passion project.
Which may explain that happily-ever-
after ending. Favreau confesses to having
injected a dose of his own life view.
Describing it, he becomes surprisingly
emotional, not above shedding a genuine
“You know, I think life’s hard,” he says.
“And ultimately, I believe in my heart that if
you’re a hero in your own story, then there’s
a happy ending.
“I do think life has a happy ending. I’ll go
on record as saying that.”

Franco as Pete, Teddy’s right-hand man at the
frat, who unlike his buddy, actually seems to
be aiming for a productive future. (Lisa
Kudrow, in a small role as a college official,
is reliably zany.)
Occasionally the humor goes awry — or
just too far. Ababy munching on a used con-
dom? “What’s that you have there, sweetie, a
balloon?” Mac asks. (Cue the delighted
groans in the multiplex.) Maybe the joke
could have stopped there. But it doesn’t .
And how about the visual gag involving,
well, a nursing woman’s breasts? Was that
really necessary?
On a brighter note, there’s a priceless bit
in which Mac and Teddy bond by trading
inter-generational “Batman” impressions:
Teddy does Christian Bale, and Mac does
Michael Keaton. Another fun scene involves
the frat guys trying their hand at Robert de
Niro impressions.
At a certain point, the movie starts to feel
like an extended “Saturday Night Live” skit,
with not much concern for narrative progres-
sion. But few people will complain.
And a closing scene that was improvised,
placing a shirtless Rogen and Efron in front
of an Abercombie & Fitch store, is not only
funny but surprisingly touching. It helps
that Efron looks exactly like an Abercrombie
Again, nobody will complain.
“Neighbors,” a Universal Studios release,
is rated R by the Motion Picture Association
of America “for pervasive language, strong
crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, and
drug use throughout.” Running time: 96 min-
utes. Three stars out of four.

ARTS CENTER. Born in upstate New
York, Carleton Watkins (1829–1916) ven-
tured west in 1849 to strike it rich. But
instead of prospecting for gold, Watkins
developed a talent for photography — a
medium invented only 22 years before. In
1861, Watkins loaded up a team of mules
with nearly a ton of photographic equip-
ment, including a mobile darkroom tent, a
dangerous assortment of flammable chemi-
cals and an enormous custom-built camera
that produced “mammoth” 18 x 22-inch
glass-plate negatives. He then headed into
the rugged and remote Yosemite Valley on a
sometimes perilous journey to capture the
natural wonders of the Sierra Nevada. The
technical challenges of creating wet-plate
negatives in the field were immense. Water
had to be carried great distances. The sun
warped and shrank camera parts. Dust and
grit could easily ruin the work at any point,
as the plates were coated, exposed for up to
an hour and developed. But Watkins dealt
with these obstacles and the photographs
he produced from that expedition became an
international sensation — not only because
they provided virtual access to one of
America’s grandest wilderness areas but also
for their extraordinary beauty. The New York
Times declared in 1862 that “as specimens
of the photographic art they are unequaled.”
In June 1864, Watkins’s stunning photo-
graphs of Yosemite’s valley, waterfalls and
peaks proved instrumental in convincing
President Abraham Lincoln and the 38th
U.S. Congress to pass the Yosemite Valley
Grant Act, legislation that preserved the
land for public use and set a precedent for
America’s National Park System. As the
nation celebrates the 150th Anniversary of
the Yosemite Grant, the Cantor Arts Center
at Stanford University presents Carleton
Watkins: The Stanford Albums, an exhibi-
tion featuring 30 of Watkins’s original
mammoth photographs from the album
Photographs of the Yosemite Valley, includ-
ing various views of Yosemite Valley;
mountains and rock formations such as
Cathedral Rocks, Half Dome and El Capitan;
waterfalls and water views such as Mirror
Lake and Yosemite Falls; and photographs
of Yosemite’s majestic trees. The exhibit
also displays his Photographs of the Pacific
Coast (1862–76) and Photographs of the
Columbia River and Oregon (1867 and
1870). Cartographic visualizations devel-
oped in collaboration with Stanford’s
Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis and
the Bill Lane Center for the American West
provide dynamic context for the geography
and natural history of Watkins’s photo-
Connie Wolf, the Cantor’s John and Jill
Freidenrich Director, said: “The Cantor is
thrilled to be leading such an innovative,
interdisciplinary effort to look at Watkins’s
work anew. These extraordinary albums
from Stanford University Libraries’ singular
collection provide us with an unparalleled
opportunity to examine Watkins’s place in
the history of photography, and to more
fully understand the critical role photogra-
phy played in the preservation, promotion
and development of the West. It is fascinat-
ing to note that Watkins and Leland
Stanford were contemporaries. Watkins
even photographed Stanford’s family, mak-
ing this university a proud and apt home for
these albums.”
Throughout his career, Watkins documented
the remote American West, generating more
than 7,000 photographs of its most majes-
tic wilderness sites as well as the dramatic
transformation of isolated territories caused
by logging and mining industries. His pho-
tographs won awards throughout the United
States and abroad. With his early success, he
established a gallery in San Francisco on
prestigious Montgomery Street in 1861.
But Watkins’s fortunes took a downward
turn with the 1874 failure of the Bank of
California and the resulting economic
panic. Heavily in debt at the time, Watkins
had to declare bankruptcy and lost both his
gallery and the majority of his negatives to
a competitor.
Watkins rebuilt his inventory, continuing
to travel and work into the 1890s, but never
recovered financially. At one point he and
his family were forced to live in a rail car in
Oakland. Watkins’s health also declined,
and by 1903 he was nearly blind. The 1906
earthquake and fire destroyed his studio and
his life’s work, and he never got over the
shock. His family eventually had him com-
mitted to Napa State Hospital, where he died
in 1916.
Cantor Arts Center is open 1 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Wednesday-Sunday and until 8 p.m.
Thursday. Admission is always free. The
Cantor is located on the Stanford University

The Daily Journal seeks
two sales professionals
for the following positions:
Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Lou Kesten
The first edition of a sports game on a new
console is like the first game in a new stadi-
um: The place looks great, but management
may not yet have worked out the kinks at
the ticket lines or the concession stands.
“MLB 14: The Show” (Sony, for the
PlayStation 4, $59.99) is no exception. In
the latest upgrade of the stellar baseball
franchise, the players look more realistic
than ever, and their individualized anima-
tions bring them ever closer to the athletes
you see at the ballpark. Sony’s San Diego
Studio has also refurbished every major
league stadium, from Boston’s venerable
Fenway Park to Miami’s flamboyant 2-year-
old Marlins Park.
The most notable flaws are some excruci-
ating loading times, especially when start-
ing a new game or switching between differ-
ent play modes. And there are a few graphi-
cal stutters that destroy the generally well-
crafted illusion of watching a TV broadcast.
Otherwise, most of the new features in the
PS4 version of “MLB 14” are the same as
those introduced a few months ago on the
PS3 edition. The most radical revision is
“Quick Counts,” in which each at-bat
begins a few pitches in. It’s a bit of a gam-
ble, since your batter can just as likely come
to the plate with a 3-0 edge or a 0-2 disad-
vantage. Purists will grumble, but it’s useful
if you have just 30 minutes or so to squeeze
in a game.
The highlight, as always with this series,
is the absorbing “Road to the Show.” You
create a player from scratch, but this year
you can model your guy on a real-life major
leaguer. My doppelganger, the scrappy sec-
ond baseman Louie Kesten, is based on
young Washington Nationals infielder
Anthony Rendon. Unfortunately, I’m still
struggling to make an impression on the
Philadelphia Phillies’ AA farm team, the
Reading Fightin’ Phils.
Sony has revamped some of the player
training and performance evaluation in
RTTS, but the essence remains. You see only
your character’s at-bats and fielding
chances, so the focus is less on winning the
game than on making sure he contributes
positively. Agame only takes five minutes,
so you could whip through an entire season
in a day.
“MLB 14” takes that single-player focus
and brings it to other game modes as well. A
new “Player Lock” feature lets you pick any
big leaguer and play multiple seasons as just
that guy. Is fiery Los Angeles Dodgers phe-
nom Yasiel Puig a flash in the pan or a leg-
end in the making? Player Lock lets you
determine his future.
If you’re looking for a really brief game,
you should check out the new “Community
Challenges.” Each challenge plops you into
a pivotal game situation — say, coming to
bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of
the 9th. You can also create your own chal-
lenges and present them to other online
“MLB 14” doesn’t radically reinvent the
series for the PS4, and if you’ve already
bought the PS3 version, you aren’t missing
much if you don’t upgrade. It still has so
much packed into it that it should satisfy
anyone, from casual players looking for a
quick contest to fantasy geeks who want to
assemble entire leagues from scratch. It
remains one of the finest sports games on
the market, and an essential purchase for
baseball fans. Three stars out of four.
‘MLB 14’ makes solid contact on PS4
‘MLB 14’doesn’t radically reinvent the series for the PS4, and if you’ve already bought the PS3
version, you aren’t missing much if you don’t upgrade.

the public before pulling the trigger.
That said, he still leans toward head-
ing to the ballot as a way not to limit
future decisions about the land.
“I always like options. The more
options the better,” he said.
But running parallel to a decision
about the ballot is whether the city
simultaneously wants to discuss what
could ultimately happen if voters
agree to change Crestview Park’s zon-
ing designation.
The City Council has a minimum of
nine options to consider for the North
Crestview site: make no change;
retain ownership and improve it as a
park and sports field; trade for the
Tierra Linda site through a combina-
tion of land and money; trade for the
school site and sell it to a developer
for new single-family homes; sell
Crestview to the district outright for a
charter school; sell Crestview on the
open market to a developer for hous-
ing; sell it on the open market for the
highest offer; lease the land to the
school district; or use the land for an
Interstate 280 connection.
The San Carlos Elementary School
District has a deadline of November
because of requirements on spending
2012 bond funds which it hopes to use
to build the Charter Learning Center
on the city parcel on North Crestview.
The school would house up to 400 stu-
dents and free up space at Tierra Linda
Middle School in return for giving the
city land near the campus which it
could use for park needs like a soccer
field and gym. The district wants a city
decision sooner rather than later so
that, if that answer is no, it can look
elsewhere to build.
The district Board of Trustees met
Thursday night to discuss possible
alternatives such putting a third
school at Tierra Linda, building at
Arundel or putting the charter at
Heather, said Board President Adam
On Friday, Rak said there was no
direction on alternatives but the board
wants to make a decision on alterna-
tives by the end of June. In the mean-
time, Rak said the district will get
more information from a traffic study
and get more data on the cost of each
“I’m really hoping Monday there is
some clarity given to the communi-
t y,” Rak said. “The council sounds
like they want to go to the voters to
decide so hopefully they can give
more shape to what that vote looks
A huge hurdle aside from some
neighborhood opposition is the fact
that the city parcel is worth more than
the school land and the city doesn’t
have the millions of dollars needed to
develop the space into a full park with
athletic fields.
Mayor Mark Olbert, a very vocal
proponent of the district’s proposal to
swap the city’s Crestview land for its
piece above the Tierra Linda campus,
said City Manager Jeff Maltbie has
suggested negotiating an agreement
ahead of the potential vote contingent
upon its success on Election Day.
With the district anxious for a deci-
sion and a lengthy to-do list required
for the switch — environmental
review, for one — Olbert said it would
be problematic to hold off on discus-
sions about the outcome until after
voters weigh in.
“There is a tremendous amount of
work between now and November and
there are practical implications,”
Olbert said.
Rak said negotiating an outcome
now lets the district do environmental
review and soil sampling on the parcel
now which, with November the end of
the district’s timeline, is preferable to
rushing after Election Day.
“Have an underlying contract in
place also gives confidence to people
that if they vote to switch the park
land what the intent is,” Rak said.
Going forward, Olbert also wants to
make sure the community feels it has
had adequate say.
“The worst thing that could happen
is we end up doing something and
there’s grumbling that the process
sucked because their voice didn’t get
heard,” Olbert said.
Olbert said Monday’s meeting isn’t
necessarily the time to choose a ballot
measure but is a chance to figure out
what path forward the city wants to
For Councilman Matt Grocott, that
path is first asking voters what they
want before tackling the question of
the final outcome.
“It has the appearance of being com-
plex but the first question to ask the
voters of San Carlos is what they
want. From there you can go down the
road and meet a fork and that fork is
whether to do something with the
school district. From there, there are
three forks: leave it as park land,
develop it for housing or some such
thing or trade to the school district to
build a school,” Grocott said.
Grocott pointed out that the parcel
was designated park land 30 to 40
years ago and a lot can change in the
“Let’s find out what the residents
want now,” he said.

officials pulled the company’s condi-
tional use permit because of reported
issues including three FlightCar
rentals being stolen since the compa-
ny moved into the 14,159-square-foot
480 El Camino Real site on two
parcels of the former Daland Nissan.
Other issues included unapproved elec-
trical generator use, fire hazards and
not maintaining the landscape.
Lawsuits on both sides followed the
“What should have been encouraged
and seen as a good thing for the city,
creating more jobs for locals, led to
our conditional use permit being
revoked,” Rujul Zaparde, FlightCar
CEO and co-founder, said in a prepared
statement. “Businesses like ours, as
part of the sharing economy, bring
additional income and savings to resi-
dents, boosting local economies. It’s
a shame to see their representatives
leveraging taxpayer-funded resources
to drive opportunities out of the city. ”
Meanwhile, Mayor Wayne Lee
wished the company well.
“We hope that they are in full com-
pliance and become a good business to
South City,” he said. “We’re sorry it
didn’t work out here.”
South San Francisco has been very
reasonable and welcoming, the compa-
ny said.
“We’re looking forward to partner-
ing with city representatives to build
their local economy by creating
income for South San Franciscans,
among our car owning members and
the jobs we’re creating there,” Zaparde
said in a statement.
Has the conflict with Millbrae taken
its toll on the company?
“Absolutely not,” Zaparde said in
the statement. “We always focus on the
business. Regulatory problems will
come and go. When you’re disrupting
an industry, you will face opposition
from the incumbents. … Our members
have rallied behind us and we are part-
nering with others in the sharing com-
munity to tackle these and future chal-
The company now has more than
15,000 members. The company’s pri-
mary service is renting out people’s
cars through its website while travel-
ing, giving them a share of the pro-
ceeds, free airport parking and a car
wash in exchange. Customers are
taken by limousine from a nearby air-
port parking lot to their flights at the
San Francisco International Airport,
while the business says renters get a
cheaper price. FlightCar will be
launching its fourth market, Seattle, in
the next few months, Zaparde said.

SATURDAY, MAY 10, 2014
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Concentrate on
career matters. You could suggest some beneficial
alterations at work and at home. Collaborating
with others will lead to positive changes. Pool your
resources and put your ideas in play.

appearance and your image. Social activities look
inviting and favorable. The compliments you receive
will help to raise your self-esteem and your confidence.

on your own skills and intellectual expertise. Your
excellent memory will help you put the finishing
touches on a project. Emotional outbursts must be
kept to a minimum.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be prepared to jump into
the spotlight. An idea you have been considering
shows potential. Your enthusiasm and creativity will
persuade others to join in your plans.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Climb the ladder of
success instead of helping and watching others get
ahead. Start making the moves that will ensure your
prosperity. Put your innovative ideas in motion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Follow your dreams and
unleash your creative talent. Take time to reflect on
what you really want. Own your destiny by making the
moves that will carry you to your goals.

obtaining better relationships with people who
count personally and professionally.

of new and valuable connections. Research and
travel will come into play as you continue your

making. If you deal with the problem diplomatically,
you will both learn something valuable.

of the equation when doing business or making an
investment or medical decision. Mull over the options
available, and you’ll choose the correct one.

SEVASTOPOL, Crimea — Presiding over a
triumphant spectacle of warships and fighter
jets, President Vladimir Putin hailed the return
of Crimea to Russia as the restoration of “his-
toric justice” before a jubilant, welcoming
crowd Friday on the holiday that Russians
hold dearest to their hearts.
Yet Putin’s first trip to the Black Sea penin-
sula since its annexation in March was
strongly criticized by both NATO and
Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry, which said it
trampled on Ukraine’s sovereignty and inter-
national law.
To the east, at least three people died and the
main police station in the city of Mariupol
was set ablaze in fierce fighting Friday
between Ukrainian government forces and
pro-Russia rebels. The government said up to
20 people were killed, including one police-
Ukraine is struggling with its most serious
crisis in decades as pro-Russia insurgents in
the east are fighting the central government in
Kiev and preparing to hold a referendum
Sunday on secession.
Putin’s two Victory Day celebrations,
which included a massive show of military
muscle in the annual Red Square parade in
Moscow and another in the Crimean port of
Sevastopol, rubbed salt in the wounds of the
interim government in Kiev without ever
once mentioning its name.
Victory Day is Russia’s most important sec-
ular holiday and a key element of the country’s
national identity, honoring the armed forces
and the millions who died in World War II.
This year it comes as Russia is locked in the
worst crisis with the West since the end of the
Cold War.
Tens of thousands flooded the Crimean port
of Sevastopol to watch the extravaganza that
was the Russian leader’s entrance. Putin
boarded a boat to sail past a line of Russian
Black Sea Fleet ships anchored in the bay and
greeted their crews before watching a flyby of
70 military aircraft.
In his speech, Putin hailed the incorpora-
tion of Crimea’s 2 million people into Russia
as “return to the Motherland” and a tribute to
the “historical justice and the memory of our
The peninsula had been transferred to
Ukraine in 1954 during Soviet times and
remained under Ukrainian control until the
March annexation, which has not been
acknowledged by the West or Kiev.
Fighting exploded Friday in Mariupol, a
city of 500,000 on the Sea of Azov that is on
the main road between Russia proper and
An Associated Press journalist saw three
dead bodies near the police station, including
one policeman. The Donetsk regional admin-
istration said in a statement that 3 people
were killed and 25 wounded during the fight-
But Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen
Avakov said in a statement that 20 “terror-
ists” and one police officer were killed in the
fighting that erupted after 60 gunmen tried to
capture the police station and were rebuffed by
police and the military.
Avakov said the government was ready to
negotiate with those in the east who want to
sit down for talks but vowed to destroy those
who take up arms. He promised not to let
Ukraine “turn into a burning buffer zone,
where death will become the norm.”
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh
Rasmussen, meanwhile, repeated his stance
that Crimea was not part of Russia .
“We consider the Russian annexation of
Crimea to be illegal, illegitimate and we don’t
recognize it,” Fogh Rasmussen told reporters
in Tallinn, Estonia. “We still consider Crimea
as Ukrainian territory and from my knowledge
the Ukrainian authorities haven’t invited
Putin to visit Crimea, so from that point of
view his visit to Crimea is inappropriate.”
Earlier in Moscow, Putin watched as about
11,000 Russian troops proudly marched
across Red Square to the tunes of marches and
patriotic songs. They were followed by
columns of dozens of tanks and rocket launch-
ers as some 70 combat aircraft, including
giant nuclear-capable strategic bombers,
roared overhead.
The parading troops on Red Square included
one marine unit from the Black Sea Fleet,
which flew the Crimean flag on its armored
personnel carriers.

LAGOS, Nigeria — The international
effort to rescue the 276 schoolgirls being
held captive by Islamic extremists in
northeastern Nigeria was boosted Friday
when British security experts joined the
Nigerian and American forces trying to
rescue the missing students.
As the worldwide effort got underway
the weakness of the Nigerian military was
exposed in a report issued by Amnesty
Britain said its aim was not only to help
with the current crisis but to defeat Boko
“The team will be considering not just
the recent incidents but also longer-term
counter-terrorism solutions to prevent
such attacks in the future and defeat Boko
Haram,” the Foreign & Commonwealth
Office said in a statement Friday.
The American team was joined by six
additional military officers and more are
expected soon, said Pentagon spokesman
Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby.
The U.S. officers will do a “gap analy-
sis,” an assessment to identify what the
Nigerian military needs that the U.S.
could provide in the search for the girls,
he said.
Hostage negotiations is another area
where the American team will assist,
said U. S. State Department spokes-
woman Jen Psaki. China, France and
Spain have also promised help.
Demonstrations in support of the miss-
ing Nigerian girls have been held around
the world and a social media campaign —
dubbed (hash)BringBackOurGirls — con-
tinued to grow.
In New York, the U.N. Security Council
hinted at sanctions against Boko Haram.
In a strongly worded statement, the coun-
cil condemned a May 5 attack that killed
and injured hundreds and demanded the
immediate release of the kidnapped girls.
British, U.S. experts join Nigeria search for girls
and they’re working so hard. They espe-
cially deserve to celebrate when they’re
taking care of young ones, infants and tod-
dlers. Oh my gosh, they’re always on ...
they’re the most deserving, they never
stop. They’re always concerned about their
baby first, never about themselves. That’s
where I come in. I try to bring them some
pleasure and thrills in their lives right
now, some perks. This is one of them,”
Lanam said.
Lanam said her children are all grown up,
but she still remembers what some of the
challenges are. Lanam said she was
inspired to create strollerobics because it
can be difficult for moms who want to get
back into shape after having a baby to
attend an exercise class if they need to find
a baby-sitter. Caring for a young child can
sometimes make it difficult to make new
friends, so having a workout group with
other mothers is also a rewarding social
activity, Lanam said.
Lanam said she still teaches strollero-
bics year-round at San Mateo’s Beresford
Recreation Center, where’s she’s led vari-
ous exercise classes for 34 years.
Cheryl Zuffi is a friend of Lanam who’s
been helping connect young moms with
this unique flash mob opportunity. Zuffi
said she runs a day care and although her
kids are also grown, she plans on joining
in with a teddy bear filled stroller or at
least watching.
“I think it’s just a way for moms to come
together and, in a very fun way, do a dance
and have some fun with their baby and
stroller. It’s a way of celebrating mother-
hood in a very healthy way,” Zuffi said.
A first-time flash mobber, Lanam said
she knows advertising it goes a little
against the grain. But surprised or not,
spectators will get a kick, Lanam said.
“There’s no reason we can’t spin and jog
and skip and throw our leg over and lunge
with [a stroller], it’s really an exercise
tool,” Lanam said. “So it works very well
and babies love seeing moms dancing
around, it’s really positive. They’re
already setting an example, it’s entertain-
ing for the baby. ... It’s hard to stroll with-
out music now. ”
Lanam said gaining participants was
mostly word of mouth, but she’s posted a
link to a video online for moms to learn
the choreography on their own. She’s not
sure how many will show up, but even a
handful will be enough to put on a one-of-
a-kind flash mob.
Zuffi said if some of her clients just want
to watch, she’d even consider borrowing a
baby to jump in. Either way, it’ll be a sight
to see, Zuffi said.
“It’s going to be great. I’ve never heard
of anyone doing it before. It’s really going
to be a first-time flash mob ... it’s going to
be moms with strollers which is quite
unique, it’s not something you would
expect to see,” Zuffi said. “Especially
when you go to the park and you see moms
there with their babies and strollers, and I
think it’s going to be hilarious.”

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

By Saying Thank You
Inspector General said. The federal Pipeline
and Hazardous Materials Safety
Administration, or PHMSA, isn’t ensuring
key state inspectors are properly trained,
inspections are being conducted frequently
enough and inspections target the most
risky pipelines, it said.
The findings come more than three years
after a gas pipeline explosion and fire killed
eight people, injured 58 and destroyed much
of a subdivision in San Bruno, California, a
suburb south of San Francisco. Accident
investigators cited weak state and federal
The nation’s network of about 2.5 million
miles of pipelines moves millions of gal-
lons of hazardous liquids and 55 billion
cubic feet of natural gas every day. Eighty-
five percent of these pipelines are under
state authority. The report doesn’t address
the safety administration’s oversight of
interstate pipelines like the proposed
Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Cynthia Quarterman, head of the safety
administration, defended her agency’s
record, pointing to a two-thirds decline in
the number of accidents and incidents
involving gas distribution pipelines over
the past 30 years.
There were 21 serious incidents on distri-
bution pipelines in 2013 and 24 incidents
in 2012, “which were the lowest number of
serious incidents on record for the past 30
years,” she said in response to the inspector
general’s findings included in the report.
Since 2010, when the San Bruno and four
other major accidents occurred, she wrote,
there have been no serious incidents to date
on intrastate transmission lines, which are
larger than distribution lines. But the
agency also fully or partially agreed with
seven recommendations made in the report.
Among the weaknesses cited in the report
is that the safety administration is using an
outdated formula to calculate the minimum
number of inspectors states need. More
inspectors may be needed to carry out new
inspection methods and responsibilities
since the formula was developed in the
More than 20 percent of the nation’s total
gas distribution pipelines are more than 50
years old or composed of material such as
cast iron or bare steel that are more suscep-
tible to failure than newer pipelines made
with more resilient materials. However, the
safety administration’s staffing formula
also doesn’t take into account whether more
personnel are needed to inspect these riski-
er pipelines, the report said.
The agency also hasn’t set minimum qual-
ifications for state inspectors who lead
inspection teams, the report said. In one
state, for example, an inspector with less
than one year’s experience was allowed to
lead inspections, it said.
“Because it has not set minimum qualifica-
tions for state inspectors to lead standard
inspections, PHMSA cannot be sure that
state inspections cover all federal require-
ments and ensure pipeline operators main-
tain safety,” Assistant Inspector General
Jeffrey Guzzetti said in the report.
The safety administration requires states
to use 14 risk factors when deciding how to
prioritize pipeline inspections, but the
agency isn’t explicit on how the risk fac-
tors are supposed to be weighed, the report
As a result, four of five states examined by
the inspector general’s office were simply
scheduling inspections based on how long
it had been since the previous inspection,
ignoring other risk factors, the report said.
The safety administration also doesn’t tell
states how often pipelines must be inspect-
ed. Investigators found one state was allow-
ing as long as eight years to lapse between
“Because of these oversight gaps,
PHMSAcannot be sure that states detect and
mitigate safety risks,” Guzzetti wrote.
The safety administration has six evalua-
tors who annually certify 48 state agencies
and conduct in-depth reviews every three
years to ensure states are following federal
guidelines, the report said. PHMSA pro-
vides about 80 percent of the funds states
spend on pipeline safety, the report said.
