South San Francisco officials are
considering a moratorium to pro-
hibit new car sharing services
west of Highway 101 — the same
area where FlightCar announced it
is opening its new facility last
FlightCar, the airport business
that allows people to rent out their
personal cars, announced last
week that it had moved the busi-
ness to 240 Dollar Ave. in South
San Francisco, a temporary loca-
tion on the west side of Highway
101 the startup is renting while it
awaits completion of permanent
space in the city. The temporary
facility fits 10 vehicles. It plans
to move to a location on Canal
Street in South San Francisco.
Back in November 2013,
Millbrae city officials pulled the
company’s conditional use permit
because of reported issues includ-
ing three FlightCar rentals being
stolen since the company moved

El Camino Real site on two
parcels of the former Daland
Nissan. Other issues included
unapproved electrical generator
use, fire hazards and not maintain-

both sides followed the revoca-
The moratorium should give the
council time to do additional
research on car sharing services,
said Mayor Karyl Matsumoto.
“I’m concerned about what has
happened in Burlingame and

said. “For me sends up a caution-

For the first time, the public will have the
opportunity to hike a scenic section of trail
through Skylawn Memorial Park after a new
link of the Bay Area Ridge Trail opened
Janet McBride, executive director of the
Bay Area Ridge Trail Council, said the pub-
lic can expect “beautiful views of the sur-
rounding ridgelines. Just a feeling of
remoteness and being in nature. There really
is some spectacular views of ridgelines and
peaks, you can actually see the watershed
and Mount Umunhum, which is the second
tallest peak in the whole ridge trail network.
You get views of the ocean, you can actually
get 360 degree views.”
The Skylawn Memorial Park, San
Francisco Public Utilities Commission, San
Mateo County Department of Parks and the
ridge trail council joined to open the two
new miles of a 13-mile stretch from San
Bruno to State Route 92.
The new portion is paved and the ridge
trail council specifically waited until
Tuesday to open it, McBride said.
May 13 marked the ridge trail council’s
25th anniversary since it dedicated its very
first trail, which was also in San Mateo
County, McBride said.
The group now has about 340 miles of
dedicated trail out of its ultimate goal of 550
miles, McBride said.
“The idea of the ridge trail is to create a
complete, connected hiking, biking, eques-
trian trail on the ridge lines surrounding the
San Francisco Bay,” McBride said.
Tuesday’s opening was a great accom-
plishment and the 2 miles added to San
Mateo County’s current 40 miles of dedicat-
ed trail, but there are still 20 more miles to
go, McBride said.
“It’s been a long time coming. It’s been a
detailed process of planning with the
Skylawn Cemetery folks to dedicate it as
part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail and it just
finally was negotiating in terms of having a
public entity stepping up to take on mainte-
nance responsibilities. San Mateo County
Parks is going to take care of the trail on an
ongoing basis,” McBride said.
Another mile to the north needs to be ded-
icated to the trail to connect the Skylawn
portion to the Fifield-Cahill Ridge Trail in
the SFPUC watershed, McBride said. Just
south, another 6 miles of trail are being
built and will open in 2016. However, creat-
ing a safe crossing over State Route 92 will
be difficult, McBride said.

Police search for six
suspects in strong-arm robbery
Police are searching for six suspects who
they said assaulted and robbed a man who

CHP helicopter rescues man
in distress on Daly City beach
The California Highway Patrol used a heli-
copter to rescue a 31-year-old San Francisco
man in distress on a Daly City beach Monday
night, according to the CHP.
The North County Fire Authority broadcast
a “man down” call on Mussel Rock Beach
around 8:30 p.m., according to CHP Officer
James Andrews.
Due to the rocky terrain between the beach
and the parking lot, emergency vehicles
would have been unable to access the man,
making a helicopter rescue necessary,
Andrews said.
The CHP helicopter quickly located the
man lying in the surf and landed on the
beach, Andrews said. The crew removed him
from the water and found him in distress and
hypothermic, Andrews said.
The helicopter flew the man to a landing
zone above the beach, where he was trans-
ferred to an ambulance that took him to a
hospital, Andrews said. An update on the
man’s condition was not immediately avail-
The rescue took approximately 10 min-
utes, Andrews said.

No one was injured in the fire but it has dis-
placed more than a dozen people from the
residences, he said.

SAN DIEGO — A wildfire roaring through
Southern California forced evacuation orders
for more than 20,000 homes on Tuesday, but
so far only one mobile home burned as a
high-pressure system brought unseasonable
heat and gusty winds to the parched state.
San Diego’s Emergency Operations Center
says most of the homes are in the city and
northern San Diego County.
The 700-acre blaze erupted Tuesday morn-
ing, fueled by canyons full of brush and
pushed by hot, dry winds. At least two high
schools and one elementary school also were
evacuated, police Detective Gary Hassen said.
Another fire destroyed a mobile home and
prompted the evacuation of five homes in the
rural town of Campo in southern San Diego
County before it was largely surrounded, state
fire Capt. Kendal Bortisser said.
North of Los Angeles, a wildfire erupted
Tuesday afternoon in Santa Barbara County
was quickly wind-whipped to 150 acres and it
threatened 150 to 200 homes in the town of
Lompoc, authorities said. Evacuations were
There were downed power lines and heavy
brush in the area, said David Sadecki of the
Santa Barbara County Fire Department.
A half-dozen other blazes statewide all
remained small, said Daniel Berlant, a
spokesman for the California Department of
Forestry and Fire Protection.
Record high temperatures were likely
through midweek from Southern California
north to the regions around Monterey and San
Francisco bays, the National Weather Service
said. Downtown Los Angeles was 92 degrees
at noon, 18 degrees above normal.

A couple who used the confusion during
the Asiana Airlines plane crash at San
Francisco International Airport last summer
as an opportunity to steal luggage from
diverted passengers was sentenced to jail
Tuesday, San Mateo County District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
Sean Crudup, 44, then a customer service
representative for United Airlines, was
caught on surveillance video handing lug-
gage off to his fiancée, 32-year-old Raychas
Thomas, and another woman on July 8,
The luggage belonged to customers
diverted away from SFO because of the July
6 plane crash, in which three Chinese
schoolgirls were killed and 180 passengers
and crewmembers were injured. It forced the
closure of an SFO runway for nearly a week.
The luggage Crudup and Thomas stole
contained valuable clothes that the couple
sold to a Nordstrom store in Pleasanton for
about $5,000, according to the District
Attorney’s Office.
They were arrested July 25 as Thomas
attempted to board a flight to Hawaii and
some of the stolen items
were later located in their
Richmond home.
The defendants pleaded
no contest to felony
grand theft and felony
possession of stolen
property in March under
the condition that they
would not go to prison
and would spend less than
a year in county jail,
according to the District
Attorney’s Office.
Judge Jonathan Karesh
sentenced Crudup Tuesday
to nine months in jail
while Thomas was sen-
tenced to six months in
jail, Wagstaffe said. Each
defendant was also sen-
tenced to three years of
probation and they have
to pay about $5,800 in restitution to
Thomas will begin her jail term in July
and Crudup must surrender in December,
Wagstaffe said.
Record-breaking heat,
high temps through Thursday
Hot weather in the Bay Area breaks heat
records and is expected to continue through
Thursday, according to weather forecasters.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration-National Weather Service
forecasters said that several heat records were
broken Tuesday, including a new high of 90
degrees in San Francisco. The previous record
was 87 degrees in 1927.
Residents in Monterey experienced 89
degrees Tuesday, beating the previous record
of 87 degrees in 1976. The temperature at
Salinas Airport was recorded at 94 degrees,
breaking the previous record of 93 degrees,
also in 1976. In Mountain View, a tempera-
ture of 91 degrees tied with 91 degrees record-
ed in 1976, NOAA-NWS forecasters said.
Forecasters say a strong ridge of high pres-
sure combined with light offshore winds will
bring very warm and hot conditions through
Thursday to the major urban areas from San
Francisco to Monterey.
Lows on Tuesday night will remain quite
warm, especially above 500 feet, with many
lows remaining in the 60s.

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.

funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to

THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)

FRESNO — Officials said Tuesday that, for
the first time in decades, they plan to tap
water stored behind a dam east of Fresno, as
they try to help California farmers through
the ongoing drought.
Pablo Arroyave of the U.S. Bureau of
Reclamation said in a conference call with
reporters that low water levels in the
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta have forced
officials to turn to Friant Dam on the San
Joaquin River. The dam forms the Millerton
Lake reservoir.
Millerton Lake water is needed to meet the
bureau’s contractual water obligations to the
San Joaquin River Exchange Contractors
Water Authority, which holds senior water
rights. The exchange provides irrigation
water to about 240,000 acres of farmland
between Patterson and Mendota.
The bureau has relied solely on
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to meet the
exchange’s needs. The additional water will
begin to flow through the Friant Dam on
Thursday, Arroyave said. “We continue to be
in a very serious drought with very serious
impacts,” Arroyave said.
In 1939, the federal government reached
an agreement with the exchange to take its
water from the Delta rather than the San
Joaquin River, unless the Delta couldn’t
meet the need. In the drought, the Delta can-
not provide enough water, marking a first
since the agreement was struck.
Steve Chedester of the exchange said that
more water is always good news for the
2,300 farms he serves. But he noted that the
government says it will provide an
increased amount of water through October.
He worries about November and December,
adding that the bureau says it remains com-
mitted to finding supplies for the exchange
then, as well.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals
court appeared poised Tuesday to continue
blocking the nation’s strictest restrictions
on the use of abortion drugs, questioning
the constitutionality of the Arizona rules a
month after putting them on hold.
Athree-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals heard arguments from the
state and Planned Parenthood Arizona,
which sued to stop the rules. The court
issued an injunction in April, saying women
likely would suffer irreparable harm if the
restrictions were allowed to take effect.
Arizona argued that the rules aim to safe-
guard women and follow Food and Drug
Administration guidelines.

MIAMI — The first thing Michelle
Pool did before picking a plan under
President Barack Obama’s health insur-
ance law was check whether her longtime
primary care doctor was covered. Pool, a
60-year-old diabetic who has had back
surgery and a hip replacement, purchased
the plan only to find that the insurer was
Pool’s $352 a month gold plan through
Covered California’s exchange was
cheaper than what she’d paid under her
husband’s insurance and seemed like a
good deal because of her numerous pre-
existing conditions. But after her insur-
ance card came in the mail, the Vi st a,
California resident learned her doctor
wasn’t taking her new insurance.
“It’s not fun when you’ve had a doctor
for years and years that you can confide
in and he knows you,” Pool said. “I’m
extremely discouraged. I’m stuck.”
Stories like Pool’s are emerging as
more consumers realize they bought
plans with limited doctor and hospital
networks, some after websites that mis-
takenly said their doctors were included.
Before the law took effect, experts
warned that narrow networks could
impact patient’s access to care, especial-
ly in cheaper plans. But with insurance
cards now in hand, consumers are finding
their access limited across all price
The dilemma undercuts President
Obama’s 2009 pledge that: “If you like
your doctor, you will be able to keep your
doctor, period.” Consumer frustration
over losing doctors comes as the Obama
administration is still celebrating a vic-
tory with more than 8 million enrollees
in its first year.
Narrow networks are part of the eco-
nomic trade-off for keeping premiums
under control and preventing insurers
from turning away those with pre-exist-
ing conditions. Even before the
Affordable Care Act, doctors and hospi-
tals would choose to leave a network —
or be pushed out — over reimbursement
issues as insurers tried to contain costs.
Insurance trade group America’s Health
Insurance Plans says studies show the
biggest factor influencing consumer
choice is price. Insurers say that if con-
sumers want low premiums, their choices
may be limited.
Insurance companies also argue there’s
wide variation in what doctors and hospi-
tals charge, with some increasing prices
every year. Insurers say there’s little evi-
dence that higher-priced hospitals or doc-
tors are actually delivering better care.

By Michelle Durand
The two candidates in one of the county’s
two contested judicial races may have differ-
ent views on criminal justice matters but
they do agree on one thing — each believes
they are the one voters should choose for
the bench.
Defense attorney and Daly City
Councilman Ray Buenaventura and court
Commissioner Stephanie Garratt are seek-
ing the judicial seat to be vacated by the
upcoming retirement of Judge Craig
Parsons. Judicial candidates are limited in
state specific opinions about how they
would rule in upcoming matters but can offer
more general perspectives.
Buenaventura and Garratt sat down indi-
vidually with the Daily Journal for an in-
office interview and also provided answers
to the following five questions to allow
each candidate a forum for sharing their own
words prior to the June 3 election. Each was
asked to keep the answers to approximately
50 words and were only edited for grammar
or length.
Do you favor opti ons to pre-tri al
i ncarcerati on such as el ectro n i c
moni tori ng? Why or why not?
Buenaventura: Electronic monitoring
is an option to have but only under the right
Public safety is of paramount concern.
The Sheriff decides which of those defen-
dants are fit to be allowed pre-trial release
by electronic monitoring. I trust in the
Sheriff’s Department to make that decision
as they are in charge of securing inmates
prior to trial.
Garratt: In certain situations, yes. The
safety of the community must always be the
main priority. However, if a situation aris-
es that allows us to save space in the jail,
preserve county resources, while keeping
the community safe, a judge should always
look at options other than incarceration, to
include electronic monitoring.
How can the court calendars be
more effici ent to keep cases on track
in a timely manner?
Buenaventura: Offer more diversionary
programs for first time, lower level, nonvi-
olent misdemeanor cases. Expanding diver-
sionary programs could lessen the criminal
calendar and free up more access for civil
cases. Also, converting to paperless sys-
tem and developing APPS that would allow
easier access to justice and information. I’m
also in favor of e-filing and doing more
business online.
Garratt: Personnel and technology.
Ensuring we have strong and experienced
judicial officers will allow calendars to be
efficient and effective, which increases
access to courts and helps bring justice to
all involved parties. Also, it is imperative
to use technology and learn the “best prac-
tices” of other counties to assist the courts
in growing in the digital age.
How do you view a judge’s di scre-
tion to discount a defendant’s pri or
criminal strikes during sentencing?
Buenaventura: People vs. Romero
gives the trial court discretion to decide this
issue of a defendant’s strikes. I would follow
the law and criteria in this regard. It is
uniquely a case-by-case decision and I would
listen to everything that is presented.
Sentencing is one of the most important
responsibilities a judge has to decide.
Garratt: The law requires a judge to con-
sider a defendant’s prior criminal strikes as
a factor. A judge should look at all factors
including prior strikes, the age of the
strikes, the nature of the strikes and the
facts of the current case. This allows a judge
to protect the community and be fair to the
defendant and bring justice to victims.
What rol e do mi ti gati ng ci rcum-
stances l i ke i mmi grati on or pot en-
ti al l oss of a prof essi onal l i cense
pl ay i n sentenci ng?
Buenaventura: Neither issues are fac-
tors the court can use. These collateral con-
sequences involve discussions between the
district attorney and the defense attorney
regarding negotiating a charge. It is the
defense attorney’s obligation to try negoti-
ating a charge that may negate any adverse
immigration consequences. The loss of a
professional license will stem from the
charged crime, not the sentence, and thus
subject to negotiations between the parties.
Garratt: Everybody must be treated fairly
and the same in a court of law. One should
not be given a break because of social sta-
tus, personal connections or professional
standings. The U.S. Supreme Court has
ruled that a judge should consider, as a fac-
tor, potential immigration consequences.
However, it is one of many and the protec-
tion of the community must always be of
paramount importance.
How have the courts responded to
real i gnment?
Buenaventura: The courts have
responded well to realignment. The courts
have accepted the responsibility to ensure
that the new sentencing schemes are fol-
lowed and that their discretion is used wide-
l y. Realignment has left the court with
room to fashion sentences to both punish
and rehabilitate a defendant.
Garratt: Courts are adapting to the new
sentencing schemes. Judges need to be cog-
nizant of how realignment affects the local
community, especially the expenditure of
resources and protecting the public. Courts
need to work with law enforcement, prose-
cutors and defense attorneys; it is impera-
tive that felons are properly supervised.
Courts are actively trying to balance public
safety with the new sentencing guidelines.

Enough is enough
E. Picchi’s letter in May 13 edition
of the Daily Journal (“Someone must
answer for Tai Wu parking viola-
tions”) is well taken, but unfortunate-
ly stops short of demanding that
those on Millbrae’s City Council,
Planning Department and city inspec-
tors be either fired or voted out of
office over the Tai Wu debacle. Wake
up people. Enough is enough.

Women’s groups
I would like to add my voice to that
of Scott Abramson (“Where is the
voice of feminism” letter in the May
13 edition of the Daily Journal) in
criticizing certain women’s groups for
not making mention of the tragedy
unfolding in Nigeria with the kid-
napped women. I visited the National
Federation of Republican Women’s
website and nary a mention was made
of the incident in Nigeria. Scotty was
outraged, outraged I tell you, that the
National Organization for Women
(NOW) similarly made no mention of
the incident. I’m sure Mr Abramson is
not a hypocrite and is even more
angry with the Republican women’s
organization and would have pointed
it out but space did not permit. You’re

Judges break laws, that’s OK?
It is election time again, and our
cities are being littered with election
signs on every corner, chain-link
fence, center median strip and the on-
and off-ramps to our highways. These
signs are illegal under many cities
ordinances unless the candidate gets
the property owner’s permission. Yet
the judges running in the June elec-
tion think they are above the law and
place signs anywhere they want.
Public Works says they do not have
the manpower to remove them as they
are driving past them. Trying to con-
tact most of the candidates is like
tracking down a fugitive. I wish cities
would pass laws that prohibit this
kind of sign activity. Do you really
think we are going to vote for a bunch
of law breakers?

Election recommendations
In the June 3 election, I’m backing
the candidates with the most experi-
ence: Juan Raigoza, San Mateo
County controller; Susan L.
Greenberg, judge of the Superior Court
Office Office 4; and Stephanie Garrat,
judge of the Superior Court Office 6.
Raigoza has worked for 13 years in
all areas of the Controller’s Office and
currently serves as assistant con-
troller. He has been endorsed by our
current controller, Bob Adler, former
controller Tom Huening, county
Treasurer-Tax Collector Sandie Arnott,
Assemblyman Rich Gordon and a long
list of other local leaders. Juan is
hardworking and energetic and has
high integrity. You can learn more
about him here: http://raigoza4con-
troller.com/. Susan L. Greenberg and
Stephanie Garratt have served as
Superior Court commissioners for 14
and nine years, respectively. They
have earned the endorsements of
scores of judges and legal profession-
als. For more background, please see
their websites: susanlgreenberg.com

Letters to the editor
he two people vying to
replace retiring San Mateo
County Judge Craig Parsons
June 3 are smart, capable and interest-
ing candidates who would both bring
a lot to the bench.
Ray Buenaventura is a Daly City
councilman and attorney who often
works in the county’s private defender
program. He is well-versed in the
courts and has a wealth of experience
as a defense attorney.
Stephanie Garratt has spent nine
years on the bench as a court commis-
sioner before court cuts eliminated
three of the seven positions here in
San Mateo County. She was recently
reappointed and returned to the bench
in April after working in the District
Attorney’s Office. Court commission-
ers do essentially the same job as
judges but typically take lower level
cases and cannot vote with the 26
judges in this county.
Both have similar views on sen-
tencing and sentencing alternatives
such as at-home monitoring or con-
sidering other factors. All must be
considered, but ultimately the law
must be followed.
Both believe the court calendar can
be sped up through technology but
budgets and ultimately personnel play
a significant role. Both would be
excellent as Parsons’ replacement on
the bench and it is difficult to recom-
mend just one.
However, there is something to be
said for the experience Garratt has
behind the bench. While
Buenaventura would likely come up to
speed quickly, this is a role with
which Garratt is familiar and comfort-
It also is significant that when there
was a new court commissioner posi-
tion open after positions were elimi-
nated — Garratt was the one selected
to return. That says something about
the current judges’ confidence in and
comfort with her abilities. Garratt has
a wide range of cases with which she
is familiar from family law to domes-
tic violence — which often prove to
be the most difficult and challenging.
She is to the point, poised and confi-
dent in her abilities with a larger view
of the justice’s role in the community.
She deserves your vote.
Garratt for Superior Court judge
Media values
e must break our silence on those moral
truths that have not been eroded by time
and social change. However unsure we are
of how to meld them with the particular circumstances of
contemporary life, we must still speak out for major the
human values embedded in our collective conscience
throughout our history — honesty, responsibility, decen-
cy.” — Maxine Schnall, “Limits.”
Lately we’ve heard a lot about the problem of sexual
assault on college campuses. Are we surprised? Combine
immature males (and females) and add liquor and other
drugs, coed dorms, the number who have received no guid-
ance about their sexuality at home or at school, many sexu-
ally explicit movies, and TVfare that has no qualms about
blatantly displaying sexual innuendo and activity, our cul-
ture’s attitude that anything goes, institutions that have
ignored or hidden the problem, and are we surprised that it
is reported that one in five coeds are sexually assaulted?
Here I will focus on the media, how it has evolved and
how it is involved. Though I realize that this is a compli-
cated problem, the evolution of the media has had a lot to
do with it. In 1991, Sylvia Ann Hewlett, author of “When
the Bough Breaks” wrote:
“In the 1980s Ronald
Reagan decided that the
American public would best
be served by deregulating
the television industry, so
he went ahead and disman-
tled controls on program-
ming. This is why hot and
heavy shows like ‘Geraldo’
and ‘Oprah Winfrey’ are
available to school chil-
dren in the afternoon. Ten
years ago these programs
would not have been
allowed on the air in the
late afternoon hours
because in 1981 the Federal Communications Commission
still controlled the degree to which the networks expose
young children to sex and violence.”
Oprah and Geraldo? I wonder what Hewlett thinks now
when we can tune in to the likes of Jerry Springer, Dr. Phil,
“The Big Bang Theory,” and even the game show, “Family
Feud,” where everyone who watches can wallow in some
very lascivious sexual innuendos. What does she think
about an ad for a sitcom that features a woman who informs
us that what all of her friends have in common is that they
all sleep with her husband. And then there are movies,
which have no qualms about putting it right out front.
“Everyone knows the reason for this transformation of
life on television. Sex sells ... As the networks and produc-
tion companies discovered that they were titillating more
viewers than they outraged, they have gradually increased
the sales potential of their product by permitting more and
more taboos to be broken in ever more explicit fashion.”
— Lichter, Lichter and Rothman, “Watching America.”
Not only does this kind of media fare expose our youth to
sexual activity and innuendo completely inappropriate for
them, it also shapes society’s vision of women. “In recent
years as scripts have become increasingly desublimated,
romance has given away to sex, with no apologies offered
for presenting women as overt sex objects.” — Lichter, etc.
In this and many other ways, our culture has become a
media cesspool as it has been manipulated by corporate
interests that have no concern about the moral content of
TVshows and ads, but only in how readily they can sell
their products. Encouraging our children to lightly regard
sexual activity as some kind of casual recreation is highly
irresponsible and, as I see it, downright criminal. And when
you consider the rate of sexual assault in colleges and uni-
versities, teenage pregnancies and the numbers of unwanted
children who come into the world each year in this country,
the situation is deplorable.
We may be amused by those more innocent times when
Father knew best and we could leave it to Beaver, but we all
see how without ethical and moral restraints (internal and
external), freedom can become license and free enterprise
can become exploitation. Aculture that does not value its
children enough to diligently protect them from despicable
corporate exploitation is a culture whose moral compass is
seriously out of whack and a culture that is rapidly deterio-
rating. Add the sociopathic mentality and its cavalier disre-
gard for the welfare of others, and the failure of honest,
responsible and decent people to stem the plague.
In 2002, James P. Stayer, author of “The Other Parent,”
described the situation well: “Now it’s exclusively commer-
cial interests that determine the contents of the media, and
explicit sex is a tried and true formula to grab audiences on
television, in movies, in musi, and on the net. ... To a trou-
bling extent the adults — industry, government, parents —
are letting the media set commercially driven sexual stan-
dards for kids who more than anything, need responsible
adult guidance, information and love.”

DirecTV, up $1.08 to $86.08
Some industry analysts say that not only is it likely that AT&T will buy
the satellite television company, but that it’s also a great idea.
Keurig Green Mountain Inc., up $8.36 to $119.07
Coca-Cola raised its stake in the beverage dispenser company to 16
percent, seeking to get its familiar brands into more homes.
Halozyme Therapeutics Inc., up 52 to $8.04
The drug developer said it’s closer to reinitiating the study of a pancreatic
cancer treatment that was halted by regulators.
Elizabeth Arden Inc., down $8.13 to $27.50
The cosmetics maker reported a surprising quarterly loss and said it is
exploring ways of creating shareholder value.
Big movers

NEW YORK — The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index is flirting with a new
milestone: 1,900.
The index briefly climbed above that
level on Tuesday before dropping back
to close just below it. Still, it set an
all-time closing high by a fraction of
Stocks have gained as most
investors remain optimistic that the
economy will start to accelerate this
year following a cold winter that
stymied growth. First-quarter corpo-
rate earnings came in better than
expected, giving stocks a lift.
Whether the S&P500 climbs beyond
the 1,900 level or falls back now
depends on the how the economy
develops, said John Canally, chief
market strategist for LPL Financial. If
growth falters, stocks will likely
slide, he said.
“But if the economy can deliver ...
and the global economy can acceler-
ate, we’ll look back at 1,900 and say
‘Yes that was just a stop on the way to
2,000,’” he said.
On Tuesday, the Standard & Poor’s
500 index rose 0.8 points, or less
than 0.1 percent, to 1,897.45, after
climbing as high as 1,902 in early
trading. The index first closed above
1,800 on Nov. 22.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 19.97 points, or 0.1 percent, to
16,715.44. The Nasdaq composite was
the laggard of the three. The technolo-
gy-focused index fell 13.7 points, or
0.3 percent, to 4,130.17.
Keurig Green Mountain was the
biggest gainer in the S&P 500 index.
Its stock surged $8.36, or 7.6 percent,
to $119.07 after Coca-Cola raised its
stake in the coffee company. Coca-
Cola, the world’s biggest beverage
company, disclosed in a regulatory fil-
ing that a subsidiary now has a 16 per-
cent stake in Keurig.
Investors were also assessing corpo-
rate earnings.
McKesson jumped $5.77, or 3.3 per-
cent, to $180 after the prescription
drug distributor said Monday its net
income rose 43 percent in its fiscal
fourth quarter. Its overall earnings got
a boost from stronger results in North
America and lower costs.
Beauty products company Elizabeth
Arden plunged $8.13, or 23 percent, to
$27.50 after it reported an unexpected
quarterly loss and disclosed it has hired
Goldman Sachs to help it explore
strategic alternatives.
Overall, though, first-quarter earn-
ings have come in better than analysts
Nearly all companies in the S&P500
have reported results, and earnings are
forecast to grow by 3.3 percent when
final figures are calculated, according
to S&P Capital IQ data. Three weeks
ago, analysts were expecting earnings
to fall 1.1 percent.
Another encouraging sign was that
company revenue growth accelerated
in the quarter to 3.2 percent, from 1.6
percent in the fourth quarter.
Despite the positive backdrop, the
stock market’s move higher this year
has been more of a grind compared
with last year’s surge. Along with
worries about the U.S., there are con-
cerns about growth overseas, as well
as tensions with Russia after that
country annexed the Crimea region in
Another factor is that stocks, hav-
ing rallied for more than five years, are
also no longer the bargain they once
“In 2009 the market was cheap. Now
we’re fairly valued, maybe a bit over-
valued,” said Canally of LPL
The price-earnings ratio, a measure
of how expensive stocks are compared
with next year’s expected earnings, is
15.2 for companies in the S&P 500.
That is below their average of 16.4
over the last twenty years, according
to FactSet data, but above the 11.4 at
the start of 2009.
S&P 500 flirts with 1,900, but falls short
appeals court indicated that the bitter
legal tussle between business software
maker Oracle Corp. and rival SAP over
a jury’s $1.3 billion copyright
infringement verdict should head back
to a trial court for more litigation
The three-judge panel of the 9th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals in San
Francisco heard oral arguments in the
case on Tuesday.
The 7-year-old legal battle revolves
around SAP’s $10 million acquisition
of a small software services firm
TomorrowNow that had promised to
help corporate customers and govern-
ment agencies maintain the applica-
tions that they had purchased from
Oracle. After SAP took over
TomorrowNow in 2005, Oracle uncov-
ered evidence that TomorrowNow was
breaking into Oracle’s computers to
steal instruction manuals and other
technical information about copy-
righted software.
Oracle filed a lawsuit in 2007 and
trial started three years later. SAP
acknowledged much of the misconduct
alleged by Oracle, but argued damages
weren’t much more than $40 million.
Ajury decided otherwise and awarded
Oracle $1.3 billion. But a trial judge in
2011 called the verdict in favor of
Oracle excessive and reduced it by
about $1 billion. Oracle appealed to
the 9th Circuit.
On Tuesday, 9th Circuit Judge Susan
Graber said the final award “seems low
given the evidence.” Graber’s col-
league, Judge William Fletcher, also
expressed disagreement with damages
awarded Oracle. None of the three
judges on the panel offered a figure of
their own and the case could be sent
back to the trial court judge for anoth-
er trial over damages.
SAP lawyer Greg Lanier argued
against reinstating the $1.3 billion or
sending the case back to the trial court.
Lanier said the U.S. District Judge
Phyllis Hamilton was right to reduce
the jury’s verdict because jurors were
“inflamed by a lot of evidence of
theft.” Lanier argues that the jury
based its verdict on what SAP would
have paid Oracle if SAP properly
licensed Oracle’s software. But SAP
argues that’s an incorrect way to calcu-
late damages because Oracle would
never have licensed its software to a
fierce rival like SAP.

Here’s an unsettling fact about cars
equipped with air bags: They don’t
always deploy when drivers — or regu-
lators — expect them to.
Thirteen people have died in crashes
involving older GM cars with defective
ignition switches. In each of those
crashes, and in others in which occu-
pants were injured, the air bags failed to
deploy even after striking trees, guard
rails or other objects.
Puzzled by these failures, federal safe-
ty regulators told Congress last month
they believed the cars’ air bags should
have worked for up to 60 seconds after
the engine stalled. But GM has since
told the Associated Press that regulators
were mistaken: The cars only had
enough reserve power to sense a crash
and deploy the air bags for 150 mil-
liseconds after the switch malfunc-
tioned and cut off the car’s power.
General Motors is recalling 2.6 mil-
lion small cars to fix the ignition
switches. The National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration is now scram-
bling to find out from other automakers
and air bag suppliers how their air bags
would function in similar situations.
Regulators, lawmakers and ordinary
drivers are learning what auto engineers
already know: These billowing white
bags are actually very complex.
Drivers beware: Your air bag may not deploy
WASHINGTON — U.S. retail sales growth
slowed in April, with consumers shopping
less online and cutting back on purchases of
furniture and electronics.
The Commerce Department said Tuesday
that seasonally adjusted retail sales rose
just 0.1 percent last month, after surging
1.5 percent in March following a harsh win-
ter that had curtailed shopping.
Several economists said the April figures
might have been depressed because of sea-
sonal adjustments connected to a later than
usual Easter. Still, the modest sales suggest
that consumers may remain cautious during
the still-slow economic recovery. Higher
sales would help drive faster growth because
consumers account for about 70 percent of
the economy.
Auto sales increased 0.6 percent in April,
and purchases at clothing stores were up 1.2
percent. But most of those gains were offset
by declines in spending at restaurants,
online retailers and furniture and electronics
stores. Excluding autos and gasoline, retail
sales fell 0.1 percent last month.
Wages have not budged much during the
recovery, and growth has struggled to
eclipse 3 percent, the average annual gain
after World War II.
The Commerce Department previously
reported that the economy grew just 0.1 per-
cent in the January-March quarter. That fig-
ure could slip into negative territory as the
government revises it, according to several
But the brutal winter depressed the econo-
my during the first quarter, and economic
indicators since then have pointed to
stronger growth in the current April-June
quarter. Many economists are looking for a
rebound to an annual growth rate of around 3
percent in the current quarter and similarly
solid readings for the rest of the year.
Hiring has been strong for the past three
months. Employers added 288,000 jobs in
April, after gains of more than 200,000 in
the previous two months. Average wages
were flat in April, although each new job is
providing another paycheck to be spent.
“At the end of the day, it is all about one’s
job, and job security,” Jennifer Lee, a sen-
ior economist at BMO Capital Markets,
said in a research note. “A job is a job and
that will help determine the ability for one
to consume. And the U.S. labor market is
improving steadily, which will support
consumer spending.”
The unusually late Easter might have
caused some sales in April to be shifted into
March because of seasonal adjustments.
That would indicate that consumer demand
is stronger than suggested by April’s retail
sales report.
Retail sales rise a scant 0.1 percent in April
European court: Google
must yield on personal info
AMSTERDAM — Europe’s highest court Tuesday gave
people the means to scrub their reputations online, issu-
ing a landmark ruling that experts say could force Google
and other search engines to delete references to old debts,
long-ago arrests and other unflattering episodes.
Embracing what has come to be called “the right to be
forgotten,” the Court of Justice of the European Union said
people should have some say over what information
comes up when someone Googles them.
The decision was celebrated by some as a victory for pri-
vacy rights in an age when just about everything - good or
bad - leaves a permanent electronic trace. Others warned it
could interfere with the celebrated free flow of information
online and lead to censorship.
The ruling stemmed from a case out of Spain involving
Google, but it applies to the entire 28-nation bloc of over
500 million people and all search engines in Europe,
including Yahoo and Microsoft’s Bing.
Facebook founder sued over real estate deal
PALO ALTO — A Northern California real estate devel-
oper is suing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg over a
deal involving property behind Zuckerberg’s home.
Mircea Voskerician says he agreed to sell his stake in the
property to Zuckerberg in exchange for a promise that
Zuckerberg would introduce him to other wealthy people
who might want to buy homes. Voskerician says
Zuckerberg never made those introductions.
His lawsuit, filed this month in Santa Clara County,
claims breach of contract.
Zuckerberg’s attorney, Patrick Gunn, told the Mercury
News his client paid Voskerician $1.7 million for the right
to buy the property. He says Voskerician’s lawsuit is mer-

Wednesday • May 14, 2014
By Nathan Mollat
Depending on which team you were root-
ing for in Tuesday’s Capuchino-Sequoia
baseball matchup, the ball off the bat of
Cap’s Anthony Orcholski took either a bad
or fortuitous bounce.
It was Orcholski’s shot off the third-base
bag in the top of the fifth inning that drove
in what turned out to be the game-winning
runs as the Mustangs topped Sequoia 3-1 in
the first round of the inaugural Peninsula
Athletic League baseball tournament.
Orcholski took a 1-0 pitch from Sequoia’s
Zane Gelphman and pulled it right down the
third-base line. The ball hit the bag,
bounced over the head of Sequoia third base-
man Cameron Greenough and — most
importantly — stayed fair, driving in Kyle
Patterson and Rory McDaid, snapping a 1-1
That was enough offense for Capuchino
starting pitcher Joe Galea, who pitched a
complete game in picking up the win.
“I knew it would be a close game,” said
Capuchino manager Matt Wilson. “We did-
n’t put up a ton of runs, but got clutch hits
when we needed them.”
Cap and Sequoia finished as co-champions
of the PAL’s Ocean Division this season,
and while Tuesday’s game had no bearing on
breaking the tie, it could be seen as a de
facto tiebreaker.
Neither Wilson, nor his Sequoia counter-
part Corey Uhalde, however, were jumping
for joy to face each other in the tournament
“It really is a shame [we] had to play each
other in the first round,” Wilson said.
If nothing else, both teams showed why
they were the cream of the Ocean crop this
season. Both Galea and Gelphman pitched
well enough to win. Galea went the dis-
tance, allowing just one unearned run on six
“Joe did a fantastic job,” Wilson said. “It
was his turn in the rotation. There wasn’t a
doubt in my mind (he would get the start).
“He didn’t throw a lot of pitches and did a

Hillsdale pitcher Eryn McCoy limited Capuchino to just four hits in the Knights’5-0 win,which
clinched a berth in the CCS playoffs.
By Terry Bernal
By the way Hillsdale head coach Randy
Metheany was hollering in the postgame
huddle, you wouldn’t think his Knights had
just scored a shut-out victory over
But Metheany took a page out of the Crash
Davis playbook by chewing out his players
after one of their best games of the year.
Hillsdale (9-4 PAL Bay, 19-7 overall)
downed Capuchino 5-0 Tuesday, clinching a
berth in the Central Coast Section playoffs.
And it was Hillsdale’s 2-1 loss in last year’s
CCS Division II semifinal against Mt.
Pleasant — in which a couple early errors
led to both the opponent’s runs — that
inspired Tuesday’s spirited postgame pep-
“It’s not about being mad. It’s being dis-
appointed in the way we’re playing the
game,” Metheany said. “You can’t play in
the Central Coast Section … lackadaisical
and, ‘Oh, we’ll get it back.’ You don’t get it
back. It’s a 21-out game. You give up five or
six outs and all of a sudden you’re beat. Last
year we made some physical mistakes,
which happens, and it came back to haunt
us. So, I just wanted to let them know that
they have to come focused and ready to
think about softball and not lollygagging
in the dugout.”
One Knights player who certainly isn’t a
lollygagger is starting pitch Eryn McCoy.
The sophomore right-hander impressed
Tuesday with a four-hit shutout to improve
her record to 15-6. McCoy set down 15 of 16
batters to start the game and retired 11 in a
row after surrendering a second-inning hit to
Cap senior Kaitlin Chang.
“She’s been pitching a long time and
she’s a gamer,” Metheany said. “Eryn’s a
tough kid. … I feel bad for her sometimes
because we get lackadaisical like we did
today. We got lackadaisical. Then that puts
pressure on Eryn and that’s not fair to [her].”
McCoy allowed just two Mustangs runners
to reach scoring position in the game and
never allowed the tying run to reach base
Knights tame Mustangs
BALTIMORE — No matter what scenario
he's thrust into, California Chrome usually
finds a way to make the adjustment.
Sloppy track? No problem. Slow pace?
Got it covered. Fast pace? Piece of cake.
The Kentucky Derby winner tested the
track at Pimlico Race Course for the first
time Tuesday and took to it like a kid in a
“He seemed to handle the track just great,”
assistant trainer Alan Sherman said. “He
just jogged but he was happy. He’s really
happy right now. So that’s a good thing.”
The Triple Crown hopeful brings a five-
race winning streak into Saturday’s
Preakness. Because there is a smaller field
than the Derby, a shorter distance and sever-
al new shooters, this race has the potential
to be different.
Regardless of how it shapes up,
California Chrome should be ready to deal
with it.
“He’s so tactical,” Sherman said. “If they
go slow in front, he’ll take it right to them
and push the horses in front of him. If
they’re going fast in front, he can just sit
off the pace. That’s the good thing about
him. He doesn’t have one style of running.
He’s pretty pushbutton. If you ask him,
he’ll do it.”
It’s supposed to rain on Friday, but the
weather forecast for Saturday is 70 degrees
and partly cloudy. Sherman has no inten-
tion of watching The Weather Channel on
an hourly basis.
“We’re not scared,” he said. “He trained
really good at Churchill on a sloppy track.
He actually looked like he liked it a lot.”
No two tracks are alike, except perhaps to
the undiscerning California Chrome.
“He had no issues on the track surface at
all,” Sherman said after Tuesday’s practice
run. “This horse hasn’t had to take his track
with him. He’s won on four different tracks
now. So I don’t think that’s an issue. I’m
hoping it isn’t anyway. ”

DETROIT — Stan Van Gundy has agreed to a
$35-million, five-year contract to be the Detroit
Pistons’coach and president of basketball oper-
ations, a person with knowledge of the details
Detroit gave Van Gundy the powerful combi-
nation of jobs on Tuesday, the person told The
Associated Press on condition of anonymity
because the deal had not
been announced.
The deal was first reported
by ESPN.com.
The Pistons announced in
April that they were not
renewing Joe Dumars’ con-
tract, ending his 14-year
run as president of basket-
ball operations.
Van Gundy is taking over
a team that has Andre
Drummond, one NBA’s top
young centers, and money to reshape its roster
this summer.Van Gundy has a 371-208 career
record with the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat.
He was fired in 2012 following his fifth season
with the Orlando. He stunned the Heat in
December 2005 by resigning for family reasons
after two-plus seasons.
The Golden State Warriors might have wanted
Van Gundy, who went to high school in nearby
Martinez, California, to be their new coach.
While the Warriors’ roster seems more attrac-
tive, Van Gundy is getting a rare chance to be the
coach and decision-maker for an NBAfranchise.
Doc Rivers does both jobs for the Los Angeles
The Pistons are desperate to be regarded as rel-
evant in the Motor City — where they’ve
become an afterthought — and hiring Van
Gundy seems to be a splashy move they needed
to make.
Ultimately, though, Van Gundy will have to
win more than he loses in Detroit, as he has in

Sacred Heart Prep 8, Hillsdale 2
The Gators scored all eight of their runs in
the first four innings to win going away in
the first round of the Peninsula Athletic
League tournament Tuesday.
SHP starting pitcher Will Johnston
worked five innings, allowing one run on
three hits in picking up the win. Andrew
Daschbach paced the offense, hitting a two-
run home run in the fourth inning. Danny
Cody and Charlie Boyden also drove in a
pair of runs in the win.
Hillsdale took a 1-0 lead in the top of
first, but the Gators responded with two in
the bottom of the inning. They took a 3-1
lead with a run in the second before adding
three runs in the third and two more in the
fourth. Anthony Leary hit a solo home run
in the top of the seventh for the Knights’

plete-game shutout.
Chad Franquez paced Aragon at the plate,
scoring three runs, driving in two and hit-
ting a double and a triple.
Steven Hughes also drove in a pair of runs
for the Dons.
Aragon moves on in the PAL tournament

Bellarmine 3, Serra 1
Senior right-hander Matt Blais threw his
sixth consecutive complete game but it was
not enough as the Padres managed just three
hits at Bellarmine Tuesday in the West
Catholic Athletic League playoff opener.
Serra jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first
inning, but Bellarmine eked out single runs in
the second, fourth and sixth. Sean Watkins,
Neil Sterling and Nolan Dempsey accounted
for each of Serra’s three hits. Sterling pro-
duced the lone RBI to plate leadoff hitter Chris
Notre Dame-Belmont 6, St. Francis 5
After seeing the Lancers tie the score with
three runs in the top of the seventh, the Tigers
walked off with the win with a run in the bot-
tom of the seventh to beat St. Francis in the
first round of the West Catholic Athletic

San Jose.
Half Moon Bay 3, Woodside 0
Ally Sarabia fired a four-hit shutout Tuesday
to lead the Cougars to a key win over Woodside.
Entering the day in a three-way tie with
Hillsdale and Capuchino, HMB remains dead-
locked in second place with Hillsdale after the
Knights downed Cap 5-0.
The Cougars scored single runs in the sec-
ond, third and fourth. In the second, Emma
Alaimo tabbed an RBI single to plate Sarabia.
In the third, Angela Brazil hit a solo home run
to right-center. In the fourth, Harlee Donovan
notched an RBI single to score Kailani Bowers.
Mills 2, Terra Nova 1
The Vikings got a splendid pitching per-
formance from starter Sara Cisneros, who went
the distance while striking out nine.
Terra Nova scored a run in the second and
took a 1-0 lead into the seventh. But Mills ral-
lied for two runs in its final at-bat. With two
outs, Cisneros hit a double to drive home the

medley and was also part of the Bearcats’ 200
medley and 200 free relay-winning teams. In
the 200 medley relay, she teamed with Julia
Hansen, Samantha Low and Natalie Ken. In
the 200 free relay, Priscilla Law replaced Low.

Five CSM athletes qualify for state meet
Zach Cantu, Scott Chiesa, Collin Luu,
Moreen Pahulu and Aaron Volkman all qualified
for the California Community College State
Championships this weekend at Mt. San
Antonio College after strong performance at
the Northern California meet this past week-
Cantu finished fifth in the 800 with a person-
al-best of 1:55.16. The top-four finishers from
Northern California and Southern California
automatically qualify for the state meet, along
with the fifth-best overall time. Cantu’s finish
was more than a second faster than the fifth-
place finisher in the SoCal championships.
Chiesa set a new CSM record in the javelin
and he finished second to College of
Siskiyou’s Alex Henderson. Chiesa’s throw of
214 feet, 7 inches was just the second CSM
javelin thrower to eclipse the 200-foot mark
under legendary throws coach Mike Lewis.
Chiesa topped Ben Foget’s previous record of
211-2 set in 2000.
Collin Luu finished sixth in the discus to
qualify for state, posting a throw of 151-6.
Pahulu, a Mills graduate, qualified for the
state meet in three events: the discus, javelin
and hammer throw. Pahulu won the Nor Cal dis-
cus championship with a throw of 141-11. She
finished third in the javelin with a mark of 120-
2 and was fifth in the hammer at 159-3.
Volkman also qualified for the state champi-
onships in multiple events: the shot put and
hammer. He took home the Nor Cal title in the
shot put with a distance of 54-10 1/4 and fin-
ished fifth in the hammer with a throw of 166-

Stanford made a quick exit from the NCAA
women’s lacrosse postseason bracket.
The Cardinal fell 13-8 to Duke in
Saturday’s opening round. In doing so, they
were met with two dubious firsts. Having fell
14-11 to Denver in the May 4 Mountain
Pacific Sports Federation championship
round, it marked the first time in the 2014
season the Cardinal lost two straight match-
es. Also, in losing just three matches in the
regular season — each by one point —
Stanford’s two postseason defeats were its
two biggest losing deficits, respectively, of
the season.
It was a season to remember for the
Cardinal though, much in part to two Bay
Area products, Hannah Farr and Rachel Ozer.
Farr, a native of Hillsborough, was named
the MPSF Player of the Year. Ozer, who grew
up in Moraga, paced Stanford in scoring
with 47 points and 34 goals.
Monday, Farr and Ozer were two of four
Cardinal named to the All-West Region team
by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse
Coaches Association. Farr and senior
defender Megan Lerner were each named to
the first team. Ozer and sophomore middle
Lucy Dikeou were named to the second team.
Four All-Region selections were some-
thing of vindication for a Stanford team
which fell short of its ultimate goal. Only
Ohio State and Louisville had as many selec-
tions in the West Region. It is a testament to
the Cardinal’s depth and a big reason why
they were able to prove such an unstoppable
force in the regular season, especially when
they’d get a roll.
“I think we have a lot of players that are
just huge-play players … who have a lot of
energy,” Farr said. “So, when that starts
happening where one person starts doing it,
and then another player comes along who
can make big plays — which is almost any-
one who is on the field — then it starts
building off each other. That’s when we
become really scary to other teams.”
Farr is renowned as being one of the most
energetic players in the mix any time she
steps onto the lacrosse field.
Former Burlingame Coyotes head coach
Rus Sherman, for whom Farr played through
her middle school years, remembers the day
she stepped onto the Stanford lacrosse field
and impressed — as a seventh grader.
Previous to current head coach Amy
Bokker’s tenure, former Stanford head coach
Michele Uhlfelder was running clinics for
promising Bay Area youth. It was there
Uhlfelder, at the bequest of Sherman, took
notice of the undersized spitfire.
“I said, ‘Look I think this kid is just going
to be something special,’” Sherman said.
“[Uhlfelder] said, ‘Well, let’s see what she’s
got. ’ So, she brought over one of her
Stanford players … and Hannah was just
keeping up with every one of these things
this Stanford player was asking her to do. …
She was something special even back then.”
In three years with the Coyotes, Farr had
something of a personal rivalry any time
her team would match up with the East Bay
club squad Lamorinda. That was Ozer’s team.
And even though Ozer is a year older than
Farr, it was game-on when the two teams
“It would kind of be a rivalry game when
our two teams would play each other,” Farr
said. “Back then, if you had two good play-
ers you were a good team, and you were bat-
tling with the other good players on the
other team.”
Still considered one of the smaller players
for her level as a 5-4 junior at Stanford, Farr
has always been revered as a draw competi-
tor. It is one of the areas Farr was most lethal
throughout 2014 as she paced the Cardinal
with 41 draw controls.
“She always was (small), but she always
played center for us,” Sherman said. “She
took the draw a lot of the time and won the
draw. She always played bigger than she
was. And she still plays bigger than she is.
… That feistiness and competitiveness you
see on the Stanford field now, she showed
that way back then.”
There aren’t many players smaller than
Farr in the Stanford mix, but Ozer was one of
them. The 5-3 senior was a force at
Campolindo High School where she played
for former head coach Mike Shumate.
“She was tiny,” Shumate said. “She looked
like a 10-year-old. She’s still small, but she
was really tiny. But she had the composure.”
A three-time All-League attacker at
Campolindo, Ozer was named an All-
American in her senior season of 2010. And
in playing for a New York native in
Shumate, she was the first player who played
with the fire of an East Coast-style player,
Shumate said.
“Rachel is a very special player,” he said.
“Everywhere she’s gone … she makes all
the players around her better. She’s a com-
plete player. … Not only is she a great play-
er. She’s a great person and everyone looks
up to her. ”
The tandem of Farr and Ozer is the reason
Stanford has been a perennial contender in
the MPSF in recent years, winning the
league title last year and finishing second to
powerhouse Denver this season. Overall,
the Cardinal have won seven MPSF titles in
the past nine years.
“It’s crazy that two such great players
from Northern California made their way to
Stanford,” Sherman said.
Stanford isn’t the first place they’ve
played together though. During their club
years with Burlingame and Lamorinda, Farr
and Ozer qualified for the same regional
select team and even got to do some globe-
trotting together.
“We played together for the first time on
the same team when we started making these
Northern California select teams,” Farr said.
“We would go play in this national tourna-
ment on the East Coast. So, that’s when we
started playing together. And that was
always really fun.”

career did not generate much fanfare until he
won the final stakes race at Hollywood Park,
the King Glorious, by 6º lengths. That
launched the five-win streak that propelled
him into position to become the first Triple
Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
Along the way, the father-son training
duo of Art and Alan Sherman realized they
had a horse most handlers only dream about.
“The King Glorious race, that opened my
eyes up,” Alan said. “Then he just kept get-
ting better. Then he won the California
Breeders Derby. That was another impres-

when I went, ‘Wow.’”
In that wire-to-wire victory at Santa
Anita, California Chrome ran the second-
fastest time in the history of the race and
beat trainer Bob Baffert’s Midnight Hawk
by seven lengths. Kristo was third, 13
lengths behind the winner.
“First time against open company and he
just broke in front and won so easy that
day,” Sherman recalled. “I was pretty excit-
ed about that one.”
The Shermans’ enthusiasm was justified in
the Kentucky Derby.
“Every year when you get the 2-year-olds
in you’re saying, ‘Maybe this will be the
one to get us to the Derby,’” Alan Sherman
said. “But we’ve been saying that for a lot of
years now, and we finally made it. It’s really

SAN FRANCISCO — Mike Minor pitched
three-hit ball into the seventh inning and
Evan Gattis drove in a run with his first
career triple as the Atlanta Braves beat the
San Francisco Giants for the first time in
five tries this season, 5-0 on Tuesday night.
Freddie Freeman, B.J Upton and
Andrelton Simmons added RBI singles in a
three-run sixth against Ryan Vogelsong (1-
2) to help the Braves win for the fourth time
in five games.
That was more than enough support for
Minor (1-2), winless in his previous eight
starts dating to last season. He struck out
six and walked two in 6 2-3 innings.
Minor, who missed the first month this
season with a sore left shoulder, pitched
around a one-out double to Hunter Pence in
the first inning and didn't allow another
baserunner until Angel Pagan's two-out
walk in the sixth as he shut down a Giants
lineup that hit eight homers in the first four
meetings with the Braves.
Minor gave up two of those in a 2-1 loss
at home on May 2, but yielded nothing in
the rematch, retiring 16 batters in a row at
one point.
That stretch ended when Pagan walked and
went to third on Pence's second double of
the night. But Minor struck out Buster
Posey to end the threat.
Minor left with runners on first and second
in the seventh. Ian Thomas struck out
Brandon Crawford to escape the
jam.Vogelsong was nearly as stingy early
for the Giants, matching a career high with
eight strikeouts and limiting the Braves to
three hits and one run on Gattis' triple in the
first five innings.
Vogelsong then ran into trouble in the
sixth when he was hurt by a botched tag
play at home plate by Posey. The big
inning started when Jason Heyward singled
and aggressively advanced to second on a
flyout. Freeman followed with a single to
right and Pence's throw home easily beat
Heyward — but he managed to elude the tag
attempt by Posey, turning a sure out into a
second run. That play loomed even larger
when Upton and Simmons hit two-out RBI
singles that made it 4-0.
The Braves added another run in the sev-
enth after a replay review overturned a call
of an inning-ending double play. Manager
Fredi Gonzalez challenged the call and
Freeman was ruled safe at first after replays
showed reliever David Huff never touched
first base, allowing Tyler Pastornicky to
NOTES: Atlanta is 14-0 when scoring

good job of keeping them off balance. I’ve
been with Joe all year and he’s the type of
kid who will step up in big situations.”
Galea cruised through the first five
innings before running into trouble in the
final two. Tommy Lopiparo led off the bot-
tom of the sixth with a single before Galea
got the next two batters. Liam Clifford came
up with a single and Gelphman walked on
four pitches to load the bases.
Greenough came to the plate and Galea
continued his wild streak, throwing three
straight balls to Greenough. It looked as if
Greenough had drawn a walk, but the home-
plate umpire thought otherwise, calling a
strike. Greenough then popped out on the
next pitch to end the threat.
In the seventh, Galea got the first two outs
before Chris Ortiz singled and Lopiparo
walked. But Galea induced a popout to short-
stop to end the game.
“I thought he was good,” Uhalde said of
Galea’s performance. “He’s not going to
give in to a batter. ”
Gelphman was just as effective. He
pitched six strong innings, allowing three
runs on seven hits. He had a no-hitter going
through three innings before Capuchino
touched him for a run in the fourth and two
more in the fifth. He gave way to Kenny
Belanger for the seventh.
“I was really proud of [Gelphman]. It was
only his second start of the year,” Uhalde
Sequoia had its chances to put some runs
on the board, but they ran out of a couple of
opportunities. In the bottom of the first,
Matt Lopez and Jarrett Crowell had back-to-
back, one-out singles. But Lopez was
caught trying to steal third for the second
out of the inning and a Galea strikeout ended
the threat.
In the fourth, again with runners on first
and second, Capuchino catcher Ramon
Enriquez picked off a runner who had wan-
dered too far away from the second-base
bag. He was tagged out at third. The
Cherokees ended up scoring in the inning
when Gelphman’s sacrifice fly drove in Liam
Clifford, but the Cherokees would get only
three more runners into scoring position
the rest of the game.
The Mustangs drew first blood in the top
of the fourth as they strung together three
straight hits — the final being an RBI sin-
gle off the bat of Antonio Martinucci which
drove in Enriquez, who had singled to lead
off the inning.
Sequoia came back to tie the score in the
bottom of the inning. Clifford was hit by a
pitch, stole second, went to third on an
errant pickoff throw and then scored on
Gelphman’s sac fly.
Capuchino took the lead for good in the
fifth on Orcholski’s hit off the third-base
Capuchino now advances to the second
round where the Mustangs will face top-
seeded Carlmont at 4 p.m. Wednesday in
“I’m looking forward to playing
[Carlmont],” Wilson said. “You’re going to
have to play the best sometime.”
Sequoia, meanwhile, will go back to work
and get ready for the Central Coast Section
“The biggest priority for us is to get our
pitching lined up for CCS,” Uhalde said.
“We just need to make sure we use the next
four or five days of practice (wisely).”
Continued from page 11
Hillsdale got on the board in the first
inning by virtue of a poor defensive show-
ing by Capuchino (8-5, 15-10). At one
point in the inning, Mustangs starting
pitcher Rafaela Dade fired 13 consecutive
strikes and all she had to show for it was a
failed double-play grounder and a two-run
rally for Hillsdale.
“My goal is just to always get ahead and
stay ahead of each batter,” Dade said.
That she did, but Hillsdale still cashed it.
Junior Meagan Wells led off the inning with
a single. But when Riley Wells followed
with a potential double-play grounder on
the infield, the throw to second base sailed
into the outfield to put Hillsdale runners at
first and third. Riley Wells stole second on
the next pitch before Sharona Mataele flared
a two-run single to center.
The Knights added a run in the fourth with-
out ever hitting a ball hard. Bailey Nestor,
who was 2 for 3 in the game, led off with a
bloop single to center. McCoy followed
with an infield single to move Nestor to sec-
ond. Kelly Miller bunted both runners over
before Nestor scored on an RBI groundout
by Kara Ronberg.
In the fifth, Hillsdale scored two more.
After loading the bases on two walks and a
hit batsman to start the inning, cleanup hit-
ter Talya Franco launched a long double to
left to score Meagan and Riley Wells, giv-
ing the Knights a 5-0 lead to cap the day’s
McCoy did the rest, relying on exception-
al command of her screwball, curveball and
changeup. She finished the day with five
strikeouts and 12 groundouts.
“I came out here, trusted my defense, trust-
ed my team and we played a good game,”
McCoy said.
With the win, the Knights are assured of at
least a third-place tie with Cap in the PAL
Bay Division standings. With the Knights
sweeping the two-game season series from
the Mustangs — Hillsdale previously
defeated Capuchino 5-2 on April 10 — a
Knights loss Thursday could mean, at worst,
they would get the third of three automatic
Bay Division bids to the CCS playoffs.
“We were tied for third with [Cap],”
McCoy said. “We knew we had to come out
and compete … but we came out here, proved
ourselves and hit the ball.”
Having entered play Tuesday in a three-
way tie with Cap and Half Moon Bay, the
Knights remain in a second-place tie with
Half Moon Bay as the Cougars downed
Woodside Tuesday 3-0.

each of his eight seasons.
Van Gundy has won 59 games three times,
once in Miami and twice with the Magic. He has
helped his teams advance in five out of seven
postseasons, leading Orlando to the 2009 NBA
Finals. Miami lost to the Pistons in Game 7 of
the Eastern Conference finals.
Detroit’s season has not lasted longer than
the regular season in five years, its longest play-
off drought since 1978-83. The Pistons won
their third NBAtitle in 2004, early in a six-year
run of reaching at least the conference finals.
The Pistons signed Josh Smith, traded for
Brandon Jennings and hired Maurice Cheeks
last offseason and were expected to at least con-
tend for a postseason spot.
Instead, the new players didn’t blend with
returning players such as Drummond and Greg
Monroe well enough to push the Pistons into
the playoffs and coach Maurice Cheeks lost his
job 50 games into the regular season. Detroit
finished the season with a 29-53 record and with
John Loyer as coach.
The franchise is hoping it has a lottery pick
next month. The Pistons will have to give their
first-round pick to the Charlotte Bobcats if the
selection is No. 9 or later as part a salary cap-
saving trade Dumars made to get Ben Gordon off
the payroll two years ago.

When it comes to ice cream, I generally
feel it’s hard to improve on a simple scoop
right out of the carton. But this time my
mind has turned to baked Alaska. I know. . .
How retro!
Baked Alaska once was the star dessert of
cruise ship dining rooms and upscale restau-
rants. The classic recipe called for vanilla
ice cream enrobed in sponge cake, lavishly
frosted with meringue, then lightly
browned in a high-heat oven. At the last
moment, it was doused in alcohol and set on
fire. The waiter would emerge from the
kitchen and parade around the room holding
the star of the evening aloft. Now that’s
Baked Alaska’s enduring appeal — and
mystery — is easy to understand. How can
you bake ice cream in an oven and not have
it melt into a bubbly puddle? The answer?
It’s doubly insulated by the cake and the
meringue. This may seem daunting, but it’s
not beyond the skills of a home cook.
My version results in mini baked
Alaskas: one person, one Alaska.
Accordingly, a small brownie stands in for a
full cake. Any store-bought brownie
(roughly 2 inches square) will do. You cut it
in half horizontally (to create two thin
halves), then sandwich in the frozen filling.
Won’t the brownie crumble when you cut it?
Not if you freeze it for 30 minutes ahead of
The “ice cream” in this recipe is raspberry
sorbet. It’s a slimmer option than full-fat
ice cream, a refreshing flavor that nods to
the season, and a time-tested and deeply sat-
isfying complement to the dark chocolate.
I wasn’t sure that the brownie and the
meringue would match up as well, but it
turns out that the meringue — basically just
a lighter-than-air mixture of beaten egg
whites and sugar — somehow transforms
our tiny stuffed ice cream sandwich into
something quite substantial. Before you

front and center. Establishing a solid
budget reserve and addressing the state’s
financial obligations, including pension
liabilities, are top priorities this year. At
the same time, we must balance this finan-
cial prudency with key investments in
programs that improve people’s lives and
stimulate the economy. While our state is
on the road to economic recovery, work-
ing families, students, disabled
Californians, seniors and children contin-
ue to struggle due to years of devastating
budget cuts to critical programs. It is time
to consider thoughtful and careful rein-
vestment in areas such as the courts, edu-
cation, health care, mental health, early
childhood education and infrastructure that
will have an immediate,
positive impact on the
entire state. I look for-
ward to working with the
governor and my col-
leagues in the
Legislature in the com-
ing weeks to achieve a
balanced, on-time budg-
et that addresses the
state’s many competing funding priori-
— State Sen. Mark Leno,
D-San Franci sco
“I appreciate the governor looking at
the budget using a multi-year perspective.
I agree with the idea that as we look ahead,
it is important to remember that in most
of the last 10 years we have faced big
shortfalls. ...
“At this point, it goes without saying
that revenue volatility is a chronic prob-
lem in our state budgets. The negotiated
agreement on the rainy-day fund will set
aside significant revenues for leaner
years. This is a very positive step ...
“Reimbursing local governments for
costs associated with mandates is long
overdue. Local governments are tasked
with implementing critical public safety
policies and I support the Governor’s pro-
posal to begin paying back these costs.
“One glaring omission is the continued
lack of funding for affordable housing.
The governor’s infrastructure financing
districts proposal is a woefully inadequate
replacement for the loss of redevelopment
funds for housing. The Legislature must
step up and provide a stronger alternative.
“I am pleased that the governor has
decided to begin to address the CalSTRS
unfunded liabilities this year. The longer
we wait the more costly it will get and this
problem has been left unaddressed for too
l ong.
“As we have improved
the safety net, particu-
larly in the area of
health care, our addition-
al expenditures have
increased at the same
rate as the new revenues.
We in the Legislature
will really need to focus
and balance our priori-
ties if we are going to make the legisla-
tive proposal to implement universal pre-
K work.
“Access to justice is obstructed when
there are long lines for court services and
closed court rooms. The governor’s two-
year strategy to stabilize trial court fund-
ing will allow the chief justice and the
Judicial Council to evaluate the current
system, modernize processes and improve
access to justice.”

cent increase over the $87 billion general
fund budget approved during the 2011-12
fiscal year, the low point of the recession
when California cut billions of dollars from
state programs and furloughed state work-
“I can tell you this is good news for
California,” Brown told reporters Tuesday.
Tax revenue in the current fiscal year is
running more than $2 billion ahead of
expectations, but the governor’s office said
expenditures increased at a similar rate.
California can expect about $1.2 billion
in additional costs this year for Medi-Cal,
the state’s health insurance program for the
poor, which saw 1.4 million more enrollees
than the state projected in January. Brown’s
office said the additional cost will climb to
$2.4 billion in the next fiscal year as even
more people enroll due to an expansion
under the Affordable Care Act.
The Brown administration had projected
10.5 million people would enroll in Medi-
Cal in the 2014-15 fiscal year but now proj-
ects 11.5 million will be covered.
Republicans applauded the governor for
striking a cautionary tone. But Assembly
Minority Leader Connie Conway, R-Tulare,
said she’s concerned by the increase in
health care expenses.
“It’s a chunk of money that we were told
we weren’t going to have to spend,”
Conway said.
The spending plan also includes a 30-year
proposal to start paying down California’s
massive teacher pension liabilities that
would split the costs between the state,
school districts and teachers, with about
$450 million going in in 2014-15. The
state Legislative Analyst’s Office has esti-
mated the liability is nearly $74 billion.
Brown’s plan now goes to the Legislature,
where many Democrats want to restore
social services and take steps to combat
poverty. Brown favors an approach that pri-
oritizes savings and paying down the
state’s debts and unfunded liabilities.
“There are many good ideas, in health
care, in schooling, environment, prison
reform, court expansion, but we only have
so much money,” he said.
The governor characterized his latest
budget plan as one of “restraint and pru-
dence.” Lawmakers have until June 15 to
make changes and pass a balanced budget
for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
He announced an agreement with legisla-
tive leaders last week to replace a rainy day
fund measure on the November ballot with a
different, bipartisan plan that would set
aside revenue of up to 10 percent of
California’s general fund and dedicate some
of the reserve to paying down the state’s
massive debts and unfunded liabilities.
California’s debts remain massive, even
as Brown proposes to spend more to pay
them down.
Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor said last
week that California has $340 billion in
debts and unfunded liabilities, or more than
$8,500 for each of its 38 million residents.
Much of the long-term liability comes from
the shortfall in the teachers’ retirement sys-
tem and health benefits promised to
277,000 retired state employees.

By Sara Moulton
Barbecue chicken is one of my
favorite summertime dishes. I like every
part of it — the tomato-based sauce (the
spicier the better), the crispy skin, even
the bones.
And taste aside, it’s also relatively
healthy, at least as compared to such
sundry first cousins as grilled and/or
smoked ribs, brisket or pulled pork. It’s
chicken, after all, and it wears that lean
protein halo. Unfortunately, when it’s
prepared with its skin and bones, and
slathered with a sugary sauce, barbecue
chicken is very nearly as caloric as its
brethren. Know why chicken skin is so
delicious? It’s high in fat.
So I set myself the task of coming up
with a recipe for a leaner version of bar-
becue chicken that somehow still boast-
ed the most lovable aspects of the clas-
sic version — a mouth-watering sauce
and an element of crunch.
I started by enlisting the usual lean
poultry suspect, the boneless, skinless
chicken breast. The one problem with
this virtuous ingredient is that it’s
tough to cook just right. Undercook it
and you risk getting sick. Overcook it
and you’re faced with a slab of protein as
dry and tough as cardboard.
And then, as I discovered while devel-
oping this recipe, there’s another prob-
lem — chicken breasts come in all dif-
ferent sizes and thicknesses. Generally,
if it’s labeled “cutlet,” it’s fairly thin. If
it’s labeled “chicken breast,” it’s rather
thick. But there’s a range of thickness
within these categories, too. I tried both
and opted for the latter because the
thicker breasts were simply harder to
The breasts also are covered for two-
thirds of the cooking time, which helps
keep them moist, further ensuring per-
fectly cooked barbecue.
By the way, the internal temperature
of the cooked breasts should be 165 F.
And be sure when you take the tempera-
ture to insert the thermometer sideways
into the center, and not straight down
from the top. That way you’ll get a more
accurate reading. Also, don’t forget to
let the chicken rest for a few minutes
after you pull it out of the oven. It’s
another way to maximize the juiciness.
For the sauce, I wanted to conjure up
something with big flavor that wasn’t
too sweet and somehow didn’t require
hours of simmering on top of the stove.
I started with the usual ketchup base,
balanced off the sugar with acid and
Dijon mustard, then spiked it with a
secret weapon — adobo sauce from
canned chipotles in adobo. Chipotles
are smoked jalapenos; they are hot and
smoky, as is the adobo sauce they swim
in. You also could use an actual chipotle,
finely minced, but I found that a tad too
fiery for this small amount of sauce.
By the way, if you open a whole can of
chilies to make this sauce, you can
freeze what you don’t use by putting a
chili with a little sauce into each cube of
an ice cube tray. Caution: after this bap-
tism by fire, this particular tray will be
usable only for freezing other spicy or
tomato-based preparations.
Finally, I needed to add some crunch to
the recipe to replicate the missing skin
and bones. Panko breadcrumbs did the
trick. One of my favorite ingredients
these days, these fantastically crispy
Japanese breadcrumbs are available at
most grocers (check the international
aisle if you don’t see them in with the
regular breadcrumbs). I sauteed them in a
little olive oil with some fresh thyme
until they were nicely toasted, then
topped the chicken with the crumbs for
the last 10 minutes of baking, which
guaranteed the crumbs would stick to the
chicken, but not get soggy.
This barbecue sauce can be as flavorful
as you like. For the adobo sauce and gar-
lic, start with the lower amounts, then
taste and adjust to your preference.
Start to finish: 40 minutes (10 min-
utes active)
Servings: 4
1/2 cup ketchup
1 to 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from
a can of chipotles in adobo)
2 teaspoons packed dark brown sugar,
or to taste
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt and ground black pepper,
to taste
1 pound boneless skinless chicken
breasts without the filet (a total of 2 to 3
breasts, each about 3/4- to 1-inch thick)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
Heat the oven to 350 F.
In a small bowl combine the
ketchup, adobo sauce, brown sugar,
vinegar, mustard and garlic. Season
with salt and pepper.
Line a shallow baking dish with foil,
leaving enough excess to generously
overhang the sides. Spread half of the
sauce on the foil in an area just the size
of the chicken breasts. Arrange the
breasts on top of the sauce and spoon
the remaining sauce over them. Bring
the edges of the foil up and over the
chicken and fold it to enclose them.
Bake the breasts on the middle shelf of
the oven for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet over
medium, heat the oil. Add the bread-
crumbs, thyme, a pinch of salt and some
pepper. Saute until light golden, 2 to 3
minutes. Set aside.
After the chicken has baked for 20
minutes, open up the foil and spoon any
sauce that has fallen off the chicken
back on top of it. Sprinkle the crumb
mixture evenly over the chicken.
Continue baking, uncovered, until the
chicken is just cooked through, another
8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Carefully slice the chicken, then
divide between 4 serving plates, spoon-
ing any sauce and crumbs that have fall-
en off over the chicken slices.
A lighter, foolproof take on barbecued chicken
Don’t forget to let the chicken rest for a few minutes after you pull it out of the oven.

research on car sharing services, said
Mayor Karyl Matsumoto.
“I’m concerned about what has hap-
pened in Burlingame and Millbrae — it
(FlightCar) hasn’t received glowing
reports,” she said. “For me sends up a
cautionary signal to go carefully. I want
to hear from FlightCar — questions will
be posed. We haven’t taken any puni-
tive response to why they were operat-
ing illegally.”
FlightCar was granted a business
license this week, but it wouldn’t be
able to move to its permanent location
during the moratorium period if it is
passed, said Assistant City Manager
Kathy Mount.
“Car sharing is an unusual business
model that doesn’t fit with the existing
categories,” she said. “It’s really just
wanting to take a look at our policies
and procedures.”
Meanwhile, FlightCar’s attorney,
Oliver “Lock” Holmes, said the compa-
ny is thankful the city worked hard to
make sure things got done in a timely
“We’re continuing to discuss with the
city whether it’s (the moratorium) nec-
essary at this time or would apply to
FlightCar,” he said. “We’ve been work-
ing on Canal Street for several months.
A moratorium is not particularly help-
ful; we need to be able to grow and
The Planning Division has recently
received two applications, one from
FlightCar and another from an airport
car rental company called Silvercar, that
would be affected by the interim ordi-
nance. The city would continue process-
ing those, but not issue any entitle-
ments or approvals on those applica-
tions while the moratorium is in effect.
“For me, I want to see what staff has to
say,” said Vice Mayor Richard
Garbarino. “There’s questionable uses
that have to be hammered out; we need
to figure out what they (car sharing serv-
ices) actually are. The question is are
they in fact car rentals and how does that
affect Hertz and other companies?
Should they operate under same auspices
as the others?”
This interim urgency ordinance would
establish a 45-day moratorium on the
issuance of use permits, building per-
mits or any other applicable entitle-
ment for automobile/vehicle rental
uses, including car sharing uses, city-
wide and for private parking uses in des-
ignated zones, west of Highway 101.
This is pending study of a zoning ordi-
nance amendment.
“The recent proliferation of sharing
uses has highlighted the facet that the
city’s land use regulations were not
developed to address unique aspects of
sharing uses,” a staff report states. “As
business models expand and such uses
become hybrids of car rental/car shar-
ing/parking uses, there is an increased
likelihood for such use to be located in
an area where unforeseen land use
impacts could result where such uses
were not previously envisioned.”
The immediate concern is that private
parking lots are permitted by right with-
in a large portion of the El Camino Real
corridor and within neighborhood com-
mercial centers, according to the report.
“In recent years the city has under-
gone significant efforts to create zoning
regulations that encourage El Camino
Real to be developed as a higher-densi-
t y, mixed-use corridor that serves pedes-
trians and bicycles as well as automo-
biles,” it stated. “While private parking
uses and car sharing may be appropriate
within these settings, the city may want
to create more specific standards, such as
a maximum number of car sharing
spaces allowed in a single development.
In current form, the city’s regulations
are too broad to deal with the intricacies
of the various car sharing models.”
Currently, car sharing is not a term or
use classification that is specifically
defined in the city’s zoning ordinance.
However, because it is similar in charac-
ter to the city’s definition of car rental
uses, the chief planner has assigned car
sharing uses to the car rental use classi-
fication. The city fears the establish-
ment of new car rental uses, car sharing
uses and private parking uses may
adversely affect the city’s ability to pro-
mote the highest and best use of proper-
t y. These services could result in threats
to public health, safety and welfare,
according to the report.
The company’s primary service is
renting out people’s cars through its
website while traveling, giving them a
share of the proceeds, free airport park-
ing and a car wash in exchange.
Customers are taken by limousine from
a nearby airport parking lot to their
flights at the San Francisco
International Airport, while the busi-
ness says renters get a cheaper price.
FlightCar will be launching its fourth
market, Seattle, in the next few months,
CEO and co-founder Rujul Zaparde said.
The vote, 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 14
at Council Chambers, 33 Arroyo Drive
in South San Francisco, requires a four-
fifths vote of approval from the City
Council to pass.

“It’s really fun,” said Charlie, a stu-
dent at North Star. “You get to design
stuff and make ideas. We also have free
time to play outside.”
In addition to these units, students
can pursue independent projects of
interest. To make project prototypes,
students use office supplies such as
tape, index cards, Play-Doh, paper
clips, scissors and other items. At
North Star, innovation workshops run
4 p.m.-5:30 p.m. Thursdays and 3
p.m.-5:30 p.m. other school days.
The study skills workshops are 1:45
p.m.-3 p.m. Thursday and 2:50 p.m.-4
p.m. other school days.
“They’re thinking with their
hands,” said Mira Gillet, the director
of design thinking for Workshop
Education. “Some kids had never had
built anything in 3-D before. They had
never been asked to invent or build
anything and this is really important
for engineering skills.”
At the same time, Gillet works for
the Stanford Mobile Inquiry-based
Learning Environment, or SMILE,
project at Stanford University and
helps incorporate this into North
Star’s Workshop program. With the
group’s software, students engaging
in reasoning and problem solving
while enabling them to generate,
share and evaluate inquiries. Students
create their own questions based on
material they’ve studied or learned and
SMILE sessions last 30 minutes to an
“It’s a content agnostic platform,”
said Noah Freedman, technology sup-
port associate at Stanford’s Graduate
School of Education. “All results get
recorded and questions can be shared
with different classes. The value
comes from the creation process —
the best way to learn something is to
teach it. … We’re excited to see it
being used. We’ve gotten very posi-
tive reactions so far. We’re trying to
create something in which pedagogy
comes first.”
Other students enjoy the quiet envi-
“We get to go outside longer (than
in other after-school programs),” said
Rem, a student. “There’s a computer to
use and good snacks.”
Another student, Darya, said she
likes the fact students get to invent a
lot of things.
“We get to follow what we want in
life,” she said. “You get a taste of real
world problems.”
The workshop teachers make sure
not to do any of the work or thinking
for the students, said Alexa Frisbie,
founder of Workshop Education.
“They build resilience,” she said.
“They develop a real fluency in public
speaking and get used to fielding feed-
back to build on. … We tried to create
a hybrid with typical other after-
school programs merged with inten-
sive enrichment experiences.”
There are also Workshop Education
programs at Farallone View
Elementary, North Hillsborough
Elementary, South Hillsborough
Elementary and West Hillsborough
Elementary schools. Approximately
150 students attend workshop each

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You have a reputation
as being steadfast and dependable, but you should
let your hair down more often and show your fun
side. Romance and intimacy are in the stars. Take a
chance on love.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Make a contribution to
a cause you believe in or a job that interests you. Your
colleagues will be grateful, and favors will come your
way when you need help in turn.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your charm and poise
will make you stand out in a crowd. Social events or
ceremonies will expose you to potential companions if
you are looking for love. Enjoy the attention.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Family problems are
imminent. Keep your cool. Follow through on
promises you’ve made in order to make a good
impression and be kept in the loop. Actions will
speak louder than words.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t confine
your activities to a set routine. Sign up for an
unconventional experience. Consider trying an exotic
cooking or dance class, or learning a new language.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Liven up your
surroundings. You will feel proud and fulfilled if you do
the work yourself. To avoid pitfalls or opposition, you
should be secretive about workplace events.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t put your social
life on the back burner. Get out and laugh a little.
Join a group that will let you show the lighter side
of your personality.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You’re missing
an important piece of the puzzle. Someone has misled
you. You may have to take a roundabout route to get
the answers you need. Proceed with caution.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — A needy family
member will be very demanding. Don’t give too much
of your time, energy or budget. You shouldn’t feel the
need to finance someone else’s mistakes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Scrutinize your own
behavior before lashing out at someone else. Don’t
start something you can’t finish or that could lead to
conflict and regret. Look for positive options.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Fight off fatigue and
lethargy. Don’t let depression or disinterest stand
between you and an exciting event that could jump-
start your vitality. The first step is the hardest.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You are spreading
yourself too thin. Be more selective in your choices.
If you want to stay healthy, you need to learn to say
no once in a while.

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

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

SOMA, Turkey — Rescuers struggled
to reach more than 200 miners trapped
underground early Wednesday after an
explosion and a fire at a coal mine in
western Turkey killed at least 166
workers, authorities said, in one of the
worst mining disasters in Turkish his-
Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said
787 people were inside the coal mine
in Soma, some 250 kilometers (155
miles) south of Istanbul, at the time of
the accident and 363 of them had been
rescued so far.
At least 80 miners were injured,
including four who were in serious
condition, Yildiz told reporters in
Soma, as he oversaw the rescue opera-
tion involving some 400 rescuers.
The accident occurred when the
workers were preparing for a shift
change, officials said, which likely
raised the casualty toll because there
were more miners inside than usual.
Yildiz said the deaths were caused by
carbon monoxide poisoning and feared
the toll could end up much higher than
the latest count of 166 workers.
He said rescue operations were hin-
dered because the mine had not com-
pletely been cleared of gas.
Authorities say the disaster followed
an explosion and fire caused by a power
distribution unit.
Nurettin Akcul, a mining trade union
leader, told HaberTurk television that
Turkey was likely facing its worst min-
ing accident ever.
“Time is working against us. We fear
that the numbers could rise further, ”
Yildiz said.

KIEV, Ukraine — An insurgent
ambush killed six soldiers Tuesday in
eastern Ukraine as Germany moved to

that includes launching a dialogue on

Ukraine’s leadership appeared cool
to the plan and U.S. officials view its
prospects for success skeptically. But

Vladimir Putin is more likely to accept

Walter Steinmeier is in Ukraine to try
to broker a quick launch of talks

Security and Cooperation in Europe
aimed at settling the crisis.

Nigeria opens door for talks with kidnappers
ABUJA, Nigeria U.S. reconnaissance aircraft flew over
Nigeria in search of the nearly 300 kidnapped schoolgirls
Tuesday, a day after the Boko Haram militant group released

A Nigerian government official said “all options” were
